Conference Title Saturday (and Lesser Matters) Open Thread

Welcome to the last full, meaningful Saturday of wall-to-wall footy.  Cherish it, as September is a long-assed time away. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pOFWHty4XFQ That was theme-free Kurt Vile.  You will RESPECT him. Everton finally ripped off the band-aid and gave Marco Silva the sack.  It is indeed very depressing to be in 18th position, entering a

In honour of the Iron Bowl (MOAR below), check out this amazing new tune by the Cats who gave you 2018's Hippo Song of the Year ("Tinseltown Swimming in Blood"): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9mFTgJQtCPk Isn't that righteous?  I haven't heard awesome bass like that since Peter Hook (Joy Division and New Order).  It sure sticks
