Last Call: Columbus Day Edition

This picture is courtesy of the Assholeology Tumblr. Check them out. They have a new book in the works that is coming out sometime in the near future. They titled this picture “How an Asshole barista picks up chicks.”

Last Call is an ever evolving, hopefully, post that is so much more than a post. It’s a collection of funny pictures, sexy pictures, the best Internet links of the day, awesome music, interesting music videos and a place for the commenters to congregate and have open discourse with like minded people. If there’s anything you’d like to see here, or see changed, get a hold of me by Twitter or by Email.

Your lovable dickbag Nonpopulist here. Soooooooo who wants to talk about Brett Favre’s peep? Anyone? There are otherwise a lot of things going on. Today is Columbus Day, or a day to reflect on our white guilt even though Columbus was an Italian acting as a proxy of Spain. Us chalkies will find a way to self-loathe, god love hate us. Today is also Canadian Thanksgiving. Excuse me for pointing out the obvious, but what in the hell do Canadians have to be thankful for? Boom, roasted. But that’s a serious question. Poutine? That 30 for 30 they did about the guy who ran to raise money for cancer research? The Jets host the Vikings on Monday Night Football, and there are comparisons being drawn to the game Favre played on MNF after his father died. I’m serious. Turn on ESPN. Think about that for a minute. Favre is definitely not a sympathetic figure, but there’s no reason to disrespect the dearly depahted like that, for frick’s sake.

Linkage:

The New Yorker: The New Yorker has a profile on person of internet note, Nick Denton, founder of the Gawker blog network. I thought this may be of interest since so many of us are/were Deadspin frequenters.

Every Day Should Be Saturday: The real story of today was the beautiful meltdown of Alabama fans on the Paul Finebaum radio show today. Paul Finebaum is a radio program based in Alabama that focuses on college football, especially the SEC. In recent months the show has become available on Sirius and XM radio. Spencer Hall over at EDSBS had the foresight to have an open thread for the first hour of the show. It was so successful (including contributions from myself and WhiteSpeedReceiver) that the thread continued until the end of the 4-hour show. I can attest to the fact the derp is strong on this show day in and day out. I listen from time to time. Today was special, though. Browse through the open thread if you want a laugh.

The Nonpopulist: I recently moved my site from blogspot to a real domain and began using wordpress. I’m still working on it and haven’t began posting new content yet, but I am trying to take it to the next level. Hearts on fire, strong desire. I could use some input. I’m trying to work with the color scheme currently. My goal is to be ready to start posting regularly again by Wednesday.

Bonus video:
This is Themselves from one of my favorite albums ever, The No Music. It’s a little weird for most people.
