  1. Crossed my mind, but I believe Eric is just that dumb enough to think he'd fool them. Listen closely early on. He's "Eric the Actor" but he's not THAT good at acting.Keys, woman.
  2. didn't hear this, but Eric the Actor formerly known as Eric the Midget is probably the top entertainment character of all time.
  3. More of dragging it out, I guess. As far as I can remember, by doing 16 episodes, they paid everybody the same thing for all the episodes, because it's considered 1 season technically within the industry, rather than having to give raises between seasons if they made it 2. But AMC still wanted to have 2 years' worth of programming, advertising, etc. Something like that. But I'm also kind of drunk right now, so could just be talking out of my ###.
  4. teamed up with Mike Francisco and Mad dog. Not done!
  5. To be fair, before last night, he had quality starts in 8 of 9 outings. He is certainly not living up to the contract yet, but he is getting no run support and could easily be 5-5. First phillies pitcher in 122 years to lose 9 games before the end of May.
  6. Sweet fancy moses, from Dennis Miller several years ago: No podcast this week?
  7. I do agree with this assessment by Sepinwall. I liked what was happening in the episode, but at times, the technique felt a little heavy-handed.
  8. I forget whether there was a specific reason that he started working at CDC (maybe just symbolizing Teddy trying to be like Don or something), but then he was there, so they had to do something with him. I imagine the writers all sat around (like the partners) and decided who should stay and who should go and why. And then someone probably gets this devilish grin and says "what if Roger mercilessly skewers Burt again and sends him packing?"
  9. I think that part of it may be his insecurity. He was seriously affected by Peggy leaving. He sees that Megan doesn't need him and is independent (several references to her youth and freedom over the past couple seasons). He is completely drawn to women who are powerful and interesting, perhaps in order to make up for the void within himself and his own insecurities. But then he either uses up everything he can get from them, or they can't stand him, and he withdraws.
  10. Maybe Don could join the circus. Or Peggy's long-lost cousin makes an appearance. And guess who's getting a dog?!
  11. Vic realizes he needs more money, so he joins a high-stakes poker game with David Cho, Michael Jordan and Sam Simon. Vic goes in the hole 57 boxes of ziti.
  12. Thanks for the feedback. Definitely would not be making any decision based on familial status (though I do understand that I need to be very careful about any potential perceived discrimination). I was just mentioning it in the sense that it made me more confident that they would stay for more than a year (as the woman indicated).
  13. Is there anything that you would consider in lieu of this clause to make you feel better about not getting nickel and dimed? My gf and I are negotiating a lease with our new LL and she doesn't like this clause because she feels like it will allow him to evade responsibility. I'm pretty much indifferent.A couple of thoughts on this...1. Charging the tenants for any repairs they didn't cause is not legal in some places and could potentially nullify the lease.2. Your sink is leaking into the cabinet and then through to the sub-floor. Is the tenant paying for the repair (or 1st $100) more likely to report it or ignore it.I'm cheap and I'm trying to maximize LL profit...I still take responsibility for maintaining my property.Thanks for the reply. In further talking to the landlord, I feel pretty good about him being responsible for the property and not trying to screw us. There is a clause in the lease, also, that states that owner is responsible for keeping premises in good condition and make necessary repairs, unless caused by tenant. So it's not so worrisome.
  14. Ok, I own my house and am moving in with my girlfriend and renting mine out, so this is my first time becoming a LL. I have a lot of interest and I am trying to make the best decision in all respects. I have one very good lead and they are ready to sign. They have credit scores of 716 and 774. Am I insane to give them a second thought? Here are my points of hesitation: 1) They are moving from California (to Philadelphia area) and don't know the area, so they don't know if they will stay in the property for more than a year. If they like it enough, then probably. 2) One of them has a 3-year position here at $40K/year (with small raises each year, not specified in commitment letter). The other has no job lined up here, but he has been a bellman for 14 years and has a small supplemental income. Currently grossing around $3500/mo. 3) They have a realtor (since they can't be here to look), so I probably have to pay him some kind of fee. He said industry standard is half-month's rent, but whatever I feel is fair is fine with him. He has done some legwork, but I don't feel like I really need him in order to find a good tenant, so I don't love paying that. I have another prospect who is from the area and definitely wants to stay for at least 3 years, as she has a daughter entering 9th grade. Waiting for her app, but probably grosses around 5,000/mo, I would guess, based on profession. I am following up with another prospect that sounds good today. I feel like I want to have as much information as possible to make the best decision, but also fear overthinking the people who are ready to go. The reason that the security of a longer-term tenant is important to me is that my gf will be renting our own place for 2-3 years, and then probably buying, so not having to worry about finding new tenants for the whole time would be nice. (Though obviously there are no guarantees with anyone). Any thoughts/advice/mockery is appreciated. edit: rent is $1400/mo.
  15. Doris *cough, cough*; I miss having her around, Jerome on the other hand...Wasn't there a theory that Jerome was the same guy that leaves the voicemails on Stern for Robin in which he mostly just repeats the n-word? Hateman?
  16. I've never actually heard him on the Mad Dog channel, it's always other guys. Familar with any of those? Costa, Schein, Fonzarelli? I go there for all my updates on the 3rd round of the French Open.

  18. Ok. I'm guessing that the stations have some idea of why they are doing what they are doing, though I think they are probably destined to fail regardless.
  19. The FAN will still be on 101.9. That's what they did in Philadelphia. 610AM (WIP) was the sports station for like 25 years. About 1.5-2 years ago, they began simulcasting on 94.1 FM. Then, earlier this year, 610 switched over to the CBS sports radio national station. Francesa's complaints about not being on AM are a little overblown, I think, though WFAN certainly has more of a national presence than WIP. I don't know what difference it is really going to make, anyway, as the radio market is getting more and more fragmented and moving toward internet transmission. I have to assume that most people looking to listen to WFAN out of market will do so via streaming.
  20. Thought to be about 5 million a yearNo way in hell. Are you guys serious? For FM radio?Largest media market in America. Most name recognition of any talk radio host. It's awful but true.What did Stern make when he was still over the air?I think around $20m per year, but that was also syndicated in tons of markets.
