Somehow I was unaware of Laura Marling... and now I can't get enough.

Yah man... it’s just lovely. Anyone who is into adventures, travel... or if you’re into motorbikes AT ALL... it’s such a great watch. I don’t think my wife minded staring at Ewan McGregor for several hours either.

Well said. I really loved it.

    The second one is better (more fun and lighthearted) than the first, but they should be watched in order.

I might have to give Long Way Down another crack. With Long Way Round, we could hardly wait to see the next episode (and this was back when Netflix sent us round recorded media in the mail), but when Long Way Down came out.... it just felt.... staged, or played out... or something. But I will take your recommendation and try the re-watch.

I'm so glad you included This is England. I loved that film. It's interesting - that film really resonated with me, but it's not one I usually recommend, because it also struck me as a film that many might not relate to. Nevertheless, I'm really glad you included it.

I didn’t choose the skux life.

The skux life chose me.

As a migraine sufferer myself - I don’t know if any words ever spoken have scared me more than the two you just typed: Thunderclap Migraine. That sounds just abysmal. Sorry to hear you’ve had repeats, although I am relived it wasn’t a stroke. Here’s hoping the neurologist can help.

I’d just about give a limb to come to your rugby workshop. I’ve been enjoying the heck out the World Cup this year. And watching with my son has been extra fun.

    What is the legal method for stealing the ball from the ruck?

I’ll admit - this is one of the aspects of the game that continually eludes me. As soon as I think I’ve got it figured out, something happens in a game that’s makes me question my understanding.

steve  ·  7 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Cargo ship owned by JPMorgan Chase seized by US with 20 tons of cocaine

hahahaha... I didn't notice your use of blatant... and then I turned around and used it. I don't know... I can understand your point of view, I feel like CNN was really trying to make a tie that isn't as strong as they would like. I mean... isn't a story about 20 tons of cocaine being seized enough? it just feels like this is like starting every headline with "Wells Fargo owned vehicle kills pedestrian" or "Quicken Loans owned home reposessed for being a brothel" albeit on a much, much larger scale. MSC is certainly at fault - but their bankers? It just feels like a really, really long reach.

    the ship, the MSC Gayane, is part of a transportation strategy fund run for the bank's asset management unit.

    That means JPMorgan Chase (JPM) does not have any operational control of the vessel, a Liberian-flagged ship that is run by the Swiss-based Mediterranean Shipping Company.

But perhaps not. I'm all for pulling the big boys down into the muck when they know what's up... but in this case, I just don't know how much anyone at JPMC would know about the cargo being hauled by a ship one of their customers financed, and nothing in the article made a strong enough tie for me to think otherwise.

that headline (which I acknowledge is not yours) is blatant sensationalism. ugh.

I might steal her poem for song lyrics.

I watched Peaky Blinders a while ago. I recently tricked my wife in to watching it (she typically shies away from this type of show) with me from the beginning. She is liking it. We're mid-season 4. Looking forward to seeing Season 5. It's even better the second time around.
