tWBS’ Adventures In The Swamp – Friday Evening Open Thread

I'm in Florida this week visiting a friend.  And aside from the reason I'm here, which is the aforementioned friend, which admittedly has been very nice and a lot fun... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-8WLa6umgdw Well, that part aside... Simply stated, Florida is a shithole. I DROVE 12 HOURS FOR THIS???? Full disclosure, I hadn't been in the State

Your Decidedly Unsexy But Historically Accurate Friday Evening Open Thread

O HAI! It's your old pal Beerguyrob, and I've asked Seamus if I could host tonight's Friday soiree, since I have a particular interest in the date. He was a surprisingly tough negotiator, because Fridays are near & dear to his heart. But after sweetening the offer once or twice, I was able to

Your “Keep On Truckin'” Friday Evening Open Thread

I have no idea what to talk about, so I'm just going to talk about the good things which happened this week, because I've been an insufferable prick the past few weeks (trust me, I know that), and have been bitching about everything.  Sooooooooo.... First and foremost.... DAVE IS HOME!!!!!!!!! He was kidnapped

Your “Don’t Scare Me…I Poop Easily” Friday Evening Open Thread

No, I'm not in any better mood this week than I was last week.  In fact, frankly, it's worse.  Nor am I planning to tell you about it. But God, this is me tWBS.... It would really help things out, and speed things along, if you'd open up a gigantic sinkhole and

Your “I Scream, You Scream….Wait, WHY ARE WE SCREAMING????” Friday Evening Open Thread

I'm not gonna sugarcoat this.  I've had a really bad week.  From many different fronts. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hyk-Vdd_Qrk Frankly, I'm pissed off at the world and just about everyone in it.  And I'm not in the mood to talk about it. So at the very least, you're not gonna have to read my ramblings this

Your “Don’t Call Us, We’ll Call You” Friday Evening Open Thread

I've been away for a coupla weeks.  Yet I still really don't know what to talk about this week. I'm writing this early because there's another hurricane 'gon roll up this way. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4x6leDGV7gs And I fully expect to lose electricity, internet and phone.  Again.  The last of which might be a blessing, actually. I

Your “My Nuts Are Falling” Friday Evening Open Thread

Seriously.  Acorns, hickory nuts....even a persimmon hit me in the head yesterday while I was cleaning up hurricane debris.  Gravity is stupid.

I'm on my way to pick up teh King Hippo.  We've decided.... fuck this hurricane, we' goin' drankin'.

Your Friday Night Open Thread / Weekend Homework Assignment

So,  your friendly neighborhood Balls was enjoying his Labour Day weekend of not doing jack shit when he decided to not only start talking in the third person,  but he also discovered some horrifying news.

Your Labour Day Weekend Friday Night Open Thread

So, we all slept in until the crack of noon, immediately cracked open a beer,  and then scratched our asses to our hearts' content,  right? Wait seriously? Do you NOT work for a company that gives you a four day weekend this weekend? Um, I guess the appropriate thing to say is

Your “It’s Friday. Let’s Eat And Drink And Drug Like The Champs We Are” Friday Night Football Open Thread

It's shitty preseason ball and a couple of shitty teams are involved in this double-header. Call it "un-beautiful symmetry", maybe? Whatever, my eyebulbs are gonna catch some action. One thing I've got an issue with is the fact that this is the first weekend that all teams are playing and
