Goldy's Random Takes

Well, the wife is watching some stupid stuff on TV, so now is as good a time as any to bore you with the random crap that pops up in my head from time to time.

  • Random teams I am a fan of: Houston Oilers (this has not carried over to the Titans), Toronto Blue Jays, Montreal Canadians, Golden State Warriors, Quebec Nordiques, Buffalo Bills, Los Angeles Angles.
  • I went to high school and started college at the height of the grunge movement. Thus chicks wore baggy pants and flannels, sweatshirts, or polo shirts. I think people my age lost out on the slut look. But we did win in terms of some great music. I'm not going to sit here and pretend to be some high on my horse music critic. I could pretty much listen to a loop of Pearl Jam, Nirvana, and Alice In Chains with some Beasties sprinkled in. It should be an interesting fall with new albums from PJ and the Beastie Boys as well as a rumored album from Alice In Chains. To be honest, I loved Layne Staley's singing, but the new guy isn't terrible. Plus by the end, Layne was so fucked up that Jerry Cantrell took over a good portion of the singing duties. Unfortunately, everything Nirvana has already been released.
  • Having mentioned all of the above here are some completely random bands I don't mind listening to (and may be the subject of a "Dave Parker Random CD of the Week" at some point): At the Drive-In; Arcade Fire; Matisyahu; Crowded House; Alison Krauss; Godsmack; Wolfmother; Vampire Weekend; Triumph; MGMT; Liam Finn; Local H.
  • The group Sudden Impact. What can you tell me about them?
  • I really don't give a shit about the Braun/Melvin dust up. Braun shouldn't have said what he said, but he did. Doesn't bother me. The unfortunate thing is that this is all you will hear about until the All-Star break.
  • If you have some time on your hands, watch some Brandon Jennings clips on YouTube. You will be sold on this guy. I don't think he will be the man out of the gate, but the guy has style that could put people in the seats. I am not calling the Bucks a play-off team but I feel they are going in the right direction.
  • Now that I mentioned the Bucks, a handfull of assholes will feel the need to say something about how much they hate the Bucks and their only reason for waking up tomorrow morning is the hope that the Bucks move out of town.
  • I have 3 Richard Jefferson bobbleheads if anyone wants one.
  • I think a lot of it has to do with the amount I am working this summer, but I am not living and dying with every Brewers game like I did last season. That could change after attending back to back games on Thursday and Friday.
  • Some of my best memories of my life involve sitting down the 3rd base line at County. For some reason, my Dad and I always sat on that side. That place has been gone for 9 years now, but everything still seems clear in my mind. That's half the fun of Watching Major League. Yah, it's a great movie, but getting able to see County every time you watch it is awesome.
  • Hats for bats!
  • I suck at golf. However, if I played more than once a month, I am pretty sure I would shave about 10 strokes off my score. I just have no feel and I have no clue how far my approach shots are going. I think it would help if I played Ives Grove as well.
  • Little green home run heeter.
  • Went to Summerfest once this year. As always, some interesting folks there. Dropkick Murphys were great. The Offspring were about as exciting as a bag of dicks.
  • I am a fan of Megan Fox.
  • Played in a 3-on-3 basketball tourney this weekend. Good times. Thankfully everyone there was in their early 30's and we all crapped out at the same time.
  • Brewers will keep it interesting into September, but they just don't have the horses to win a division that is there for the taking. According to Richard Justice, the Astros have all the tools, so I am just waiting for them to put it all together and run away with the division. Oh, that's right, they suck.
  • Does Trenni even exist on the MLB network anymore? Has Woz kidnapped her?
  • 'Til next time, good night and good bowling everybody.

Trenni has to regret taking the gig now. I'm sure she's putting on the happy face, but she knows she's never getting any higher up than covering mid-week Indians/Blue Jays games on a channel very few people watch during the hours the use her.

The sound at the Offspring stage was terrible...but other then that if you got a decent view I thought the show was average. Although I could hear the Dropkick Murphy's in the background the whole time and wished I was there.

Do the Helen Keller...

Really anonymous? Goldy gives you a behind the curtain look into Goldyland and the best you can come up with is a trenni regrets moving to NYC?

Strikes and Gutters Goldy. Thanks for kicking off my Tuesday with some solid procrastination. Setting the tone early for a productive day in the cube.

Sudden Impact was a white R&B group that was in the East Coast family with Bell Biv Devoe, Boyz II Men, and Another Bad Creation. They were douchebags who had long blonde hair but shaved sides. They were in the Motownphilly video and had this stupid pose where they showed all those bands in the East Coast Family, and when their picture came up, they all pointed at the camera all at one time. It was unbelievably stupid. That's what I remember about Sudden Impact.

Kenny Chesney was tremendous on the mainstage.

Wrong crowd?

brad said...

I, for one, was a big fan of the East Coast Family. Yeah, I said it!

Lance's Other Nut said...

Am I over thinking that Helen Keller line, I mean she wasn't a slut or anything right?

And I thought when she talked it was that weird deaf person noise

/feel free to point out how dumb I am

Matt said...

I think the biggest travesty in the Braun/Melvin dustup is that Braun is not going to speak his mind any longer to the media.

He'll become a drone like everyone else.

Bad news for bloggers and fans who find his candor refreshing (though I'll admit in this particular case he went too far - can't call out teammates like that).

I have a Chris Capuano Bobblehead missing his left arm. Any takers?

Winks said...

Love the Crowded House reference.

Goldy said...

Thanks Glenn. That's the kind of response I was looking for. It's amazing that in this day and age, there is relatively dick about Sudden Impact on the web. Apparently they never had their own song but sang on some compilation song on an East Coast Family CD. I hope it was as good as "We're All in the Same Gang".
