KSK Radio: 6-19-15 and Classic Rock Mock Draft

Welcome to the new week, everyone.  Over the weekend I watched the U.S. Open and took some delight in seeing Dustin Johnson wrest the title of “the Tony Romo of the PGA” from Jordan Speith by three-putting the final hole.  I chatted with my dad while watching the tournament, and we agreed that it was the worst-looking golf course we’d ever seen on television and possibly even in person.  A lot of assholes out there are clamoring that all the players are dealing with the same conditions, which is true, but asking the best golfers in the world to play on such a garbage surface is like asking that the NBA finals be played on a school playground court with inconsistent basket heights and bent rims.  Nobody watched that 3-0 sludgefest in Pittsburgh a few years ago and insisted that it really “tested” the participants.  It just sucked – as did the U.S. Open.

Anyhow, that’s enough of a rant to start the week.  I could go on about how Apple got caught with their hand in the cookie jar and now everybody seems eager to praise them for taking it out, but instead let’s start the week on a positive note with not one, but TWO editions of KSK radio – the first is the standard Friday post fare, and the second is culled from KSK’s Classic Rock Songs mock draft last spring.  Enjoy, and have a great week!

P.S.  Joe Buck is as bad at announcing golf as he is at everything else.

P.P.S.  Auto-embed of the playlists?  Fuck yeah!  Nice work, Chris!

Double disappointment today.

Hey guys, how about this new “Comment Box above the comments AND below the comments” feature? OH AN WE FANCY

King Hippo

Our Komments can be all bi-curious now.

Wow. Much komment. So box.

Old School Zero

I’ll be your chinese finger trap, comment box.

One suggestion, if it’s easy: I do love the picture up top and the name, but can we reduce the space that takes up? If not, it’s no big deal, but I don’t have a large screen and it can take up some prime dick joke real estate.

I’ll take a look at the template.


For those interested in entropy, barbarism, and the decline of standards generally, Doug Schneider’s twitter feed about the Kenny Chesney concert at Lambeau is an essential contribution to the field. @pgdougschneider. There’s a selection of them in the first comment on this terrifically-titled Deadspin post: http://theconcourse.deadspin.com/cops-overwhelmed-by-drunks-kenny-chesney-sparks-white-1713086995


That is great. In tangentially related news, I deleted my Twitter account today. The echo chamber was slowly killing me and making me into a bigger asshole than I already am, and no one needs that. RIP, @barchens. RIP. I think Facebook may be next, although I have basically muted everyone on my feed.

monty this seems strange to me

What actually happened is that the Cardinals hacked into @barchens.


The Cardinals are basically 5Chan in jorts.

I found THIS on the internet. Curious.



I’ve never had a Twitter or Facebook. Maybe it’s turned me into the social pariah that some friends and acquaintances believe me to be today, but I doubt it. I’m sure your baby/party/vacation/random Wednesday book club meeting was the best thing “ever” in that particular moment and that Bud Light totally stole/posted your #UpForWhatever pics and I’m rambling so I’ll just let Dennis Reynolds handle the rest:



I definitely get it, though. If I was forced to listen to Kenny Chesney for more than five minutes I’d try my hardest to get blackout drunk too.


I don’t care for Taylor Swift ‘ music, but I appreciate how big a boss she is and that her letter to Apple on her Tumblr is what made them change their mind to pay artists during the free trial period. It’s nice to see that her head isn’t up her own ass and is actuslly looking out for newer/smaller artists who really need that royalty check every month.

Also, I’m sporting my Led Zeppelin 1971 World Tour shirt today, coincidence? Me thinks not!


I watched the last few rounds of the U.S. Open yesterday with some of my confidants (I would not watch otherwise). They failed in terrific fashion if they were trying to market that course to amateur/leisure players. Who in the fuck would want to play on that shit-looking course for fun?

No Thin Lizzy on that classic rock playlist? This list is INVALID!!!
