    2018 US Open - Shinnecock!

    Short memories re: whether or not Augusta would tap dance around the rules to avoid DQ’ing a star. At least the USGA’s can be interpreted as a passive apology for the setup. Augusta went spineless for the money, I guess.

    I found subscribe and save to be way less awesome than I thought it would be. When I first discovered it I was giddy: 20% off, o yeah. Then I found it hard to find things that we used regularly enough in reasonable quantities. It's just me, my wife, and infant son. Having to purchase a lifetime supply eliminates the need for a subscription. Excitement level was dramatically lower, but I still spent an hour subscribing to enough stuff and staggering it so that I always got the 5 item minimum to get the 20%. I used a spreadsheet to arrange the scheduling and intended to track my usage to tweak it as needed. Then before the third delivery they had cancelled half the stuff I had subscribed to totally ####### up my superawesome spreadsheet. Now we only have a few "regulars" on there, and I just randomly tack on items as needed to get the 20% discount. I hope toothpaste doesn't expire. Diapers/wipes are awesome for sub and save yeah, that's what I was hunting originally. The wipes are great since there is pretty much no quantity they could sell that would be too high, and it's great for our formula, too. But they don't have the brand/size combo that we need in diapers (last time I got my wife to try a different brand based on price/coupons she got a handful of piss-soaked clothes every time she'd pick him up, so that ship has sailed).

    Right now I am leaning towards 20K, but my wife is pushing for me to up the puppet budget to 40k.i'm not trying to run your business, but i'd defer to your wife here. she must be in marketing.

    Deadwood

    I'm clearly in the minority, but i thought it was ####### awesome. Made even better by the way it ended and the final line. Everybody in the sopranos thread always gushes about what a genius the Sopranos mastermind is: "Chase is just toying with us" and "Chase wants us to think this". I usually roll my eyes at that kind of bs, but damn if it doesn't apply perfectly to this season of deadwood and the (non) resolution. sometimes there's just nothing pretty to tell.

    Deadwood

    I thought the episode was great. Hell, Utter giving Hearst the business in the jail cell was one of my favorite scenes of the season. "Were ya drunk, Mr. Joooiige Hearst?"

    Deadwood

    Last night was the first episode I saw. It was good, but I have to say, the cursing is WAY overdone. I think it gets in the way of the dialog. At times it sounds like the script is written by 13 year olds that were told "go ahead, you can curse!"The show was very good, but I was just surprised that the F-bomb was dropped so frequently that it seemed to get in the way of what otherwise seemed rather intelligent writing. BTW, I have had the same complaint about the Sopranos before, which I don't really watch either. That was exactly my complaint in season 1. I realized that they were trying to show us how gritty and vulgar it was, or whatever, but I found it distracting. However, after watching for three seasons I can tell you that you just get used to it. At least I did, anyway.

    Deadwood

    My memory isn't what it used to be, but my recollection was that Tolliver did have something from Wolcott on Hearst. Tolliver "admitting" that he didn't wasn't surprising, and if my recollection is right, maybe Tolliver is up to something. I could be 180degrees off here though.BTW, what the hell happened to Charlie Utter as a character? He's nothing but bad comic(?) relief now. Tolliver did have something on Hearst. He had the letter Wolcott wrote before killing himself implicating Hearst having knowledge and helping cover up all his murders. Tolliver was trying to use it to blackmail Hearst out of money. Tolliver didn't know though, that Hearst had letters from Wolcott saying that Tolliver helped dispose of the bodies he was killing in Deadwood.....which is 100% true. So essentially, Tolliver said to Hearst "F you, I have you in my pocket".....Hearst came back and said "F you harder, I have YOU in my pocket." Hearst seems to be real good at that. Which is why a guy like Hearst surrounded by one guy and a cook would take a bullet in the head within a week in a place like Deadwood if every other character were really as wickedly intelligent as they make them appear in the show. This is something a co-worker and I were discussing this morning. I think Hearst has much more protection at the camp then we think. I'm sure a man of his power and money has a lot more then the Captain watching his back. My guess is there are people all over the camp that are essentially invisible to us but are watching and protecting Hearst. Also, make no mistake, a guy with his money and power has powerful friends. If something happens to him there will be powerful people looking to take revenge. Al knows this, that's why he called himself "queer" last night for not going after Hearst. He apparently has enough guards that two of them are expendable enough to sacrifice for the sake of leverage.

    They've done a good enough job by me of selling the fact that a guy like George Hearst taking a bullet in Deadwood would be detrimental to the forward thinking of the town's leaders. It seems like Al, himself, is part of Hearst's "protection". My disbelief is sufficiently suspended.And kudos to McRaney for being such a convincing snake. I was a little skeptical of Major Dad's ability at first, but send the guy an Emmy.

    Deadwood

    I can't remember if he had something from Walcott or not, but whether he does or doesn't it would seem to be neutralized by Hearst having an account of Tolliver's participation. That being said, I find it hard to believe that Tolliver isn't up to something. He didn't seem like someone who would accept the role of lapdog so readily before.Also, I hope they're not setting the Doc up to either die and/or be incapacitated for a while, although it sure seemed like it. The show loses a little, to me, during the scenes where my preferred characters are laid up. Al in S2, Tolliver this season, etc...
