As long as you're not planning to bet on fantasy cause I crushed you there
I was actually rooting for my team to lose in my other league so I could eventually be leading the league in points, yet be 0-8. Then I could twist around every post by someone bragging about being good in fantasy football as, "you mean you are really really lucky, and also have a lot of luck on your side."
No hard feelings Cbats, you are allowed to shit talk when you win (even if in the wrong thread), I agree it's expected. I'm completely lost in fantasy football this year, and I've made that clear. I pay attention to this game when my A's typically suck ass this time of year. Before you call bullshit, understand I own an injuried WR on the worst team in football, and a guy who had -2 points over the first four games of the season (that is tough to do).
I love how everyone thinks the Texans are going to win tonight's game by 40. This is one reason I quit betting on the NFL many years ago. It's way too hard to predict. This seems like a slam dunk, right? I'm not buying.
PS: Someone quote this before I delete it when the Texans are up 21-0 in the first quarter.
Fact#1: Every musician automatically thinks whatever they are working on is the best shit ever.
Not true of Deaner -- like I mentioned, he's said that he pretty much forgot about every Ween album immediately after it was released with the exception of The Mollusk. Everything from White Pepper on -- the arguably less-brown albums -- feel distinctly like Gener joints. I kinda think that Deaner was profoundly embarrassed by at least half of the tracks on Quebec and Cucaracha.
Fact#2: Every musician apologizes for their creations no one likes by saying, "I was in a dark place in my life, but the next album is going to be off the hook."
I didn't get that he was apologizing for anything, and although a lot of Ween fans are lukewarm on Cucaracha, no apologies were ever forthcoming (nor should they have been -- Cucaracha kills). What I got from that article is that Deaner is dealing with being dumped by attempting to prove that he can do something amazing without Gener. Gener is an amazing songwriter, but he's not an amazing musician. Claude Coleman, Dave Dreiwitz, Glenn McLelland, Andrew Weiss -- all absolutely top shelf musicians. By taking the focus away from the Ween-ness of it all -- which even as a superfan I can admit started to feel pretty self-conscious around 2003 -- and placing it on the music itself, something distinctive and really fucking amazing is possible.
I never had a lot of love for Moistboyz, and I thought Deaner was going to devote all of his energy to that after Ween broke up. Glad that's not the case.
Fact#2 wasn't referring to a Ween apology. The point is everyone says, "This shit is going to be amazing," then fast forward a year when no one likes it, THEN they apolgize and start plugging their next endeavor. Everyone does it.
I'm not saying his new album won't be amazing, but believing it because the artist said so and smiled in a picture is faulty.
Every three months, I'm in the mood to watch a movie, but every time I bring up the available movies On Demand, I recognize zero titles. I have no recollection of you guys talking about this movie, and thought I would immediately be chastised for liking it.
