ohio state blogs will post literally anything
Not exactly deploying the bots, but we could get a ton over to Mott if everyone sent just one. It takes approximately four seconds and costs nothing (though there is a donation link at the bottom for anyone looking to chip in for these kids).
I could use a distraction from recruiting, and I figured this is an appropriate OT post since Brian has written at length about DFW and his influence on the blog.
I started reading a free Kindle sample of Infinite Jest and am enjoying it, but I need to make a call on whether I want to commit to a 1000+ page endeavor. DFW's writing style is great -- challenging, funny, interesting -- but my concern is whether there is a plot to the story that is going to keep me hooked. Is there much of a plot to the book? While I can admire and enjoy great prose, I usually enjoy novels much more when I empathsize with the characters and sort of cheer for or against them relating to whatever obstacles exists before them. Know what I mean? (P.S. No spoilers please.)
Anyway, any thoughts on the novel would be appreciated. Now you may resume panicking about Rashan Gary.
What is your favorite song from the 80's? To me it has to be I'm Falling by the Comsat Angels. Kind of a one hit wonder but still an amazing song in my opinion. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1bO_XNeyGdE
Character actor Abe Vigoda, whose leathery, sad-eyed face made him ideal for playing the over-the-hill detective Phil Fish in the 1970s TV series "Barney Miller" and the doomed Mafia soldier in "The Godfather," died Tuesday at age 94.http://abcnews.go.com/Entertainment/wireStory/abe-vigoda-sunken-eyed-cha...
What's your favorite TV or Movie car? Would you own it? With or without its magical powers? (EG, you'd love to own the General Lee, but it has to be indestructable or no deal or, You actually had a black TransAm with the license plate "KITTTTT" and you swear it talked to you once).
No talking about recruiting or ethics here, let's talk cars. The more obscure the better. Would you rather have Jake Ryan's 944 from "16 Candles"? or the U-Boat 928 from "Risky Business". These are the important questions of our time!
