MKMOT (November 7, 2012)

What a night! I'll always remember where I was on the otherwise forgettable evening when Ball State pulled off the upset on the road, and I learned what yuzu was! A milestone evening, indeed.

In other news, the people have spoken, by not speaking, and I'm prepared to declare the balog all but over. I say "all but," because there is one guy back in my control center who keeps insisting that there are still countless readers out there who have yet to be heard from. I think he was just trying to be nice. That guy has a history of unfounded optimism, but I haven't had the heart to let him go after all that time he spent waiting in line to get me my copy of Chinese Democracy on its release date.

Closing up shop is a process. Until completion, it's open.

  1. I am thinking of aurochs and angels, the secret of durable pigments, prophetic sonnets, the refuge of art. And this is the only immortality you and I may share, my Marv Skeevy.

    1. Rosie, he's like a machine. He's got this gift of blankness. Once you set him in motion, he will not stop. So, when three o'clock comes, he will gut CJ like a pig, and try not to get any on his shoes and there is nothing I can do.

    3. Special agent Skeevy! This is not some job, flipping burgers at the local drive-in! Yes! - your figurines bothers me! Yes! - your approach to this whole damn balog bothers me! And yes! - YOU BOTHER ME! And Pappas! Oh, for the love of Christ. How the hell did I even let you talk me into this whole bone-headed idea to begin with?

    6. What's the matter with you guys? This was never about the comments, this was about us against the system. That system that kills the 'uman spirit. We stand for something. We are here to show those people that are inching their way on the freeways in their metal coffins that the 'uman spirit is still alive.

    7. [puts on blindfold] I've been on the balog for over 10 months, and I fail to see what fishing bricks from the bottom of a pool has got to do with bank robbery. And on top of that, they got me babysitting some figurine punk, named Marvy Unitas or something.

  7. The existence of burners has absolutely destroyed the value/fun of live chats.

    1. Oh, man, I just got home from school and I'm about to read that chat. I'm excited! Or scared! Or both!

  8. Come on Marv, at least keep it going until I'm gone. I'm old and can't last much longer. Let it be November 7, 2012 until I go to my punishment.

  9. I'm sure this was spurred by a lot of the questions he was getting, but that's pretty funny.

    1. Holy crap, almost 1500 comments. Any of them funny?

    2. Depends, how funny do you find burners, generally speaking? Joe did have some funny responses, though.
