The @redsox are coming! The @redsox are coming! (at Fenway Park)
I biked past five of these trucks parked on Landsdowne St. this morning.
This is always the weirdest time of winter for me. I love winter, BTW. The cold, the dark, the snow, I fucking love it all.
But now is the time when winter can’t decide if it will stay winter and be in the low teens over night, or if it will flirt with some cross dressing as spring and shoot up into the 50s.
Rain or no rain, I’m sure I’ll see at least one person wearing shorts and flip flops on Saturday.

Thanks to Dan and Merlin talking about True Detective, I found myself hooked, and I can’t believe it’s over.
I haven’t bothered reading much about the show because I don’t need anyone else’s ideas in my head, I’ve got plenty of my own. The only article I did read was one Dan and Merlin linked to: The One Literary Reference You Must Know to Appreciate True Detective.
It’s a good article, but at the risk of ruining the surprise, the main take-away is that the allusions to a Yellow King and Carcosa were references to a collection of short stories published in 1895 by Robert W. Chambers called The King in Yellow.
It’s out of copyright so you can read it as a
or listen to a
free audio book.
If you have a podcast app, you can load the book right into it by adding the feed http://rss.tjluoma.com/the-king-in-yellow/.
I decided to wait until until after the show was over before I read it, and I thought I’d put this out there in case anyone else is having Post Finale Blues. Maybe this will help take the edge off. Even if it doesn’t, it’s still cheaper than a six pack of beer and a carton of cigarettes.
And once more, we must all say thank you to T.J. for being awesome and constantly finding shit like this.
Current status: ready for True Detective

My initial reaction to Ellen’s star studded selfie was that it would be unfair to some other “more deserving” tweet that was she using the reach of the Oscars ceremony to vault into the top spot.
Then I looked at the list of most fav’ed and retweeted tweets. I have concluded that Ellen was actually doing god’s work.
I found this collection to be pretty interesting.
Also: can anyone else confirm this piece of trivia that I thought up:
Robert De Niro and Marlon Brando are the only two actors to win an oscar for portraying the same character.

I know it’s Buzzfeed, and we all know that Buzzfeed is usually terrible, but I found this to be a pretty thoughtful list.
It’s not just a terrible list thingy, she writes quite a bit about certain films.
