But I have a match coming up on Monday against jaymc's distant relative, so I am a little worried.

Four one days coming due tomorrow, I have yet to peep out
Florida Man (Mon)
Salmon (Mon)
The Art World (Mon)
The French Revolution (Mon)
Maybe I will have a look-see now

Left Eye Frizzell (James Redd and the Blecchs), Sunday, 19 July 2020 19:11 (three years ago) link

not-quite-jaymc has a knowledge profile similar to mine and is in A Rundle, so I will proceed with cation.

Left Eye Frizzell (James Redd and the Blecchs), Sunday, 19 July 2020 19:12 (three years ago) link

Caution, even

Left Eye Frizzell (James Redd and the Blecchs), Sunday, 19 July 2020 19:12 (three years ago) link

Also just registered for School of Rock.

Left Eye Frizzell (James Redd and the Blecchs), Sunday, 19 July 2020 19:14 (three years ago) link

not doing well but really enjoying book club! 3-4-1

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Sunday, 19 July 2020 21:47 (three years ago) link

Synchronicity continues as I too am 3-4-1.

Anyone need a referral? ‘Tis the off-season.

Left Eye Frizzell (James Redd and the Blecchs), Tuesday, 21 July 2020 23:39 (three years ago) link

Instead of Fred Willard I put Bob Odenkirk.

Left Eye Frizzell (James Redd and the Blecchs), Wednesday, 22 July 2020 11:12 (three years ago) link

I got my first 9(6) AND 12/12 yesterday!

Can you send me ILX robomail with your contact info?

i was doing really well on the general knowledge book club (bouncing between 2nd and 1st place until i got my first loss on the last day and dropped into third) but i totally bombed the final. it didn't really seem to match up with the rest of the minileague since it was all book excerpts and no general knowledge.

also apparently i forgot to register for school of rock. ugh.

na (NA), Friday, 24 July 2020 14:18 (three years ago) link

I didn't look at the final yet. I finished 4th or something, can't remember. And I am in School of Rock no further comment. Oh yeah, I am helping smith a music mini-league which is due in October. I think my name is on the page over there so jaymc could have figured it out anyway.

Time Will Show Leo Weiser (James Redd and the Blecchs), Friday, 24 July 2020 14:33 (three years ago) link

I finished 1st in my group for Book Club but also didn't do very well in the championship. In a few cases I recognized the author/book but couldn't get to what the question was actually asking. Like, I knew Chuck Barris but not Gong Show, Phyllis Wheatley but not YWCA, and Fun Home but not "Ring of Keys."

Is it '60s Music? It doesn't look like there's a dedicated page for that ML yet.

jaymc, Friday, 24 July 2020 15:13 (three years ago) link

Yes, that’s it. If you click through to contributors I am there along with Tony Hightower and others. Do you know him?

Time Will Show Leo Weiser (James Redd and the Blecchs), Friday, 24 July 2020 15:52 (three years ago) link

extreme lol at the mountain goats controversy from school of rock day 1

the portentous pepper (govern yourself accordingly), Sunday, 26 July 2020 09:16 (three years ago) link

Is it in the Message Board over there? Looked for a second and didn't find.

Time Will Show Leo Weiser (James Redd and the Blecchs), Sunday, 26 July 2020 13:57 (three years ago) link

Oh, wait, never mind.

Time Will Show Leo Weiser (James Redd and the Blecchs), Sunday, 26 July 2020 13:58 (three years ago) link

HAHA meanwhile, John Darnielle has no idea about the unexpected fruit of his songwriting labor. Somewhere in a private corner of the internet, big fuckin nerds are arguing about a trivia question that *references* a song he wrote 25 years ago.

unashamed and trash (Unctious), Sunday, 26 July 2020 14:51 (three years ago) link

Oh, I see it now. Tony's flag looks familiar, so perhaps I've seen him on the LL message board, but I don't otherwise know him.

my school of rock opponent today went 0-for-6 on friday; now gearing up to be 96ed

mookieproof, Monday, 27 July 2020 20:57 (three years ago) link

i have an obvious comment about today's school of rock questions

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Tuesday, 28 July 2020 02:26 (three years ago) link

We will see you tomorrow about that

Time Will Show Leo Weiser (James Redd and the Blecchs), Tuesday, 28 July 2020 02:31 (three years ago) link

TFW you confidently submit your answers and then see that half of them are wrong.

Garry Shambling (Leee), Wednesday, 29 July 2020 18:11 (three years ago) link

So many times I’ve replaced my first, correct guess with my second, wrong guess

all cats are beautiful (silby), Wednesday, 29 July 2020 18:11 (three years ago) link

hee hee hee on the AP question, ILX ftw

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Wednesday, 29 July 2020 18:13 (three years ago) link

You know what that is called in LL jargon, don't you, siby?

Time Will Show Leo Weiser (James Redd and the Blecchs), Wednesday, 29 July 2020 18:29 (three years ago) link

I've forgotten, all the jargon is too contrived :)

all cats are beautiful (silby), Wednesday, 29 July 2020 18:31 (three years ago) link

my school of rock opponent today went 0-for-6 on friday

he is now 0-for-18 and i'm wondering if it's some sort of art project

mookieproof, Wednesday, 29 July 2020 19:00 (three years ago) link

Hey forks/ulysses, have you ever smithed a 1DS? I have an idea for one if other potential collabs fall through, and we share a certain interest in a particular subject.

Garry Shambling (Leee), Monday, 3 August 2020 21:17 (three years ago) link

i'd love to!

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Monday, 3 August 2020 21:17 (three years ago) link

Sweet! I just saw that it's been done before, but I've PMed the smith for that to see if they're interested in a sequel.

Garry Shambling (Leee), Monday, 3 August 2020 21:54 (three years ago) link

OK I just heard back from the OG smith who said that a sequel is fine, can I ilxmail you to work out the details?

Garry Shambling (Leee), Monday, 3 August 2020 23:47 (three years ago) link

I've never smithed an official Learned League 1DS or ML, but I've posted a couple of quizzes on the Alpaca Farm.

jaymc, Tuesday, 4 August 2020 03:12 (three years ago) link

Leee, please do; want to hear what your topic is to see if i can contribute.
if it's alt-comics or cemeteries, I'm good to go.

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Tuesday, 4 August 2020 04:57 (three years ago) link

Leee, send me your email address so i can respond!

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Tuesday, 4 August 2020 05:51 (three years ago) link

Sent!

Garry Shambling (Leee), Tuesday, 4 August 2020 16:45 (three years ago) link

Will reply shortly!

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Tuesday, 4 August 2020 16:50 (three years ago) link

i've written a couple 1DSes ("pirates" and "vaporware" iirc), happy to help if you have any questions about the process

the portentous pepper (govern yourself accordingly), Wednesday, 5 August 2020 05:54 (three years ago) link

I've played over 1,000 LL matches, including Mini Leagues, and I'm pretty sure that yesterday was the first time I've lost 0(0)-9(6). It was in the Spain ML, and my opponent not only has a .775 lifetime QPct, he also lives in Madrid.

jaymc, Saturday, 8 August 2020 16:05 (three years ago) link

Forgot to sign up for that one but can imagine

Time Will Show Leo Weiser (James Redd and the Blecchs), Saturday, 8 August 2020 16:36 (three years ago) link

lol that is brutal

led my school of rock minileague in TCA, allowed exactly one UfPA in 11 matches for a .962 DE . . . and finished third. it's all in the CAA

mookieproof, Saturday, 8 August 2020 23:03 (three years ago) link

heh, i also got third. didn't play as good as you!

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Saturday, 8 August 2020 23:25 (three years ago) link

Did okay not super on PKD 1DS but Top Ten finish on Oulipo, woo-hoo!

Time Will Show Leo Weiser (James Redd and the Blecchs), Friday, 14 August 2020 19:04 (three years ago) link

Looks like Leee and n/a are in the same rundle for this upcoming season, along with another one of my referrals (my brother's friend SiegelbaumS).

jaymc, Saturday, 15 August 2020 20:06 (three years ago) link

MD18 showdown!

Garry Shambling (Leee), Saturday, 15 August 2020 21:24 (three years ago) link

Is there a branch named after you now, jaymc?

Time Will Show Leo Weiser (James Redd and the Blecchs), Saturday, 15 August 2020 22:54 (three years ago) link

Oh no. still named after our friend.
