Have you heard the Chicago band Black Nag (includes Dorian Taj from Articles of Faith)? What do you think of them?

I forgot the most important question...White Sox or Cubs?



If you're a Cubs fan, I want you in the Tuesday game, and please bring your whole roll.

If you're a Sox fan, well, we're suffering some variance right now...







Very nice.

I wouldn't call it "variance." Signing Erstad was a disaster, Dye's dropoff wasn't unexpected though the severity is surprising, and the bullpen was meh from the start.

I'm hoping Kenny learns from this year and we come back strong in 2008. He did do a good job with the McCarthy trade, and even Gavin Floyd looks like he might be a servicable major league pitcher for a couple years.

Can you think of bands that have released excellent albums more that 10 years apart? 5 years apart?



Well, present company excepted, there was an awesome Cheap Trick album released in 1994, titled "Cheap Trick," just like their first one, but the record company went [censored]-up a week later. The Fall keep making records, and once in a while one of them is good. Wire did it. Mission of Burma. Silkworm. Zeni Geva. Neurosis.

I was about to say it isn't too common, but I keep thinking of more, so basically you're wrong. Lame bands ought to break up early, but good ones can go on for a long time.

I have not heard them. I would not hold AOF (who were ridiculous and terrible) against Dorian. He always seemed like an okay guy.

wtf is swingo?



Named after a Naked Raygun song, Swingo is the poker game for the 21st Century, incorporating elements of 5-card draw, stud, hold-em and intentional angle-shooting. Invented (though rarely played) at the Tuesday game.

Swingo
Pot-limit played with two equal blinds.

Everyone is dealt five cards, and there is a round of betting. After the betting closes, each player places two of his cards face-down on the table. When all players have placed their hole-cards down, all players still in the hand expose the other three cards in their hand by placing them on the table face-up. These cards ("the Board") remain in play unless the hand holding them folds. There is another round of betting, starting with the best hand showing (as in stud), not taking other players' cards into account. For example, a player with two Kings on board would act first if no other player has a better hand showing, even if another player could make trips using a board card in addition to his up-cards. After the betting is closed, a final community card is dealt face-up on the table. There is a final round of betting. Players, starting with the last player to bet or raise, show their hands and declare them. The best legal declared hand wins. Declaring a hand your cards do not allow does not kill your hand, but it makes you a dick, and you have to get it right or ask for help for your next try.

A player may use any one of the other players' exposed cards (the Board, not another player's hole cards) in his hand. More than one player may use the same Board card. Any player may use the river card in his hand. Players are not required to use any board cards or the river card to make their hands. A player must use a minimum of three cards from his original five-card hand. The best five-card hand wins.

There is some debate about whether this game should be declared or cards-speak.

Other options: Hi-Low split, split pot with a player whose board card you use to make your hand (for this version, the hands should be declared rather than cards speak, since a player may opt to play for the whole pot by declaring a hand that doesn't use an opponent's up card).

[edit: I do not know of any site that offers Swingo online]

I think editing your own Wikipedia entry is super-duper lame and uncool, and I would never do it. It's supposed to be for other people to hang stuff on you, like how you are a sex criminal or cheat at Yahtzee whatever.

Hey Steve,

Curious about your production on a couple Mono albums and GY!BE...

At the beginning of some songs (Ode, Yearning, and 09-15-00), the listener can hear your voice saying, "You're on." I understand these were recorded live, but I was curious what the purpose of leaving the command on those songs served.

Mr Albini

I'm particularly fond of the Electrelane albums you worked on, I was wondering how you found working with them and what you think of the albums yourself.

Also, I was wondering what record producers you particularly admire yourself.
