Patriots Nation may have forgotten -- or at least is trying to forget -- Aaron Hernandez, but the tight-end-turned-convicted-murderer hasn't forgotten Patriots Nation.
In a letter to a prison pen pal obtained by TMZ, the incarcerated Hernandez says he watches the Pats games from a TV in a cell and "still [roots] for my squad and still [loves] all the ones I loved."

But he no longer loves one of the ones he loved, describing owner Robert Kraft as "fake ass [and] non loyal," saying Kraft "told me he loved me every time he seen me but obviously shows his word ain't [crap]."

Kraft testified against Hernandez in the trial in which the ex-Patriot was convicted of murdering his former friend, Oden Lloyd.

But he has good words for others, like . . .

Tom Brady: "The closest I was with was probably Brady and whom I love to death and always will and only hope the best for them.”

Rob Gronkowski: “The BEST TE ever to walk on a football field”

Julian Edelman and Deion Branch: "[Was] cool with Julez, Branch (I [bleeped] with and got mad love for)"

Hernandez started the letter by blasting his pen pal -- a woman named Rachel -- for criticizing him and went on to suggest ways she could kill herself:

-- “Tie a cinderblock to your ankles and jump in a deep body of water,” Hernandez writes.

-- “Buy the most powerful firecracker in the world that’s possible to buy, tie it to your face with duct tape, light it and wait for your head to explode.”

But he ends by saying he hopes she "had the best of holidays" . . . though the letter is dated Dec. 15, 10 days before Christmas.

Forks: Son, we live in a world that has music, and that music has to be organized into playlists. Who's gonna do it? You? You, mattresslessness? I have a greater responsibility than you could possibly fathom. You weep for musicians, and you curse Spotify. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know. That the royalties issue, while *~~controversial~~*, probably led to more music purchases indirectly. And my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, leads to more music purchases. You don't want the truth because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me making those playlists, you need me on ILM. We use words like honor, code, loyalty. We use these words as the backbone of music streaming issues. You use them as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very playlists that I provide, and then questions the manner in which I provide them. I would rather you just said thank you, and went on your way, Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a pair of headphones, and listen. Either way, I don't give a damn what you think you are entitled to.

man, 22 years ago to the very month, 1st year of uni, took a train on my tod from liverpool to manchester to go the academy to see my top 2 extant bands at the time, manics and gorky's. holy bible was my favourite album of all time and i was in love with a design for life, had diligently bought both versions of the CD single. i guess the album had just come out and so i am sure i was listening to it en route. bought 2 different bad t-shirts from merch. both shows were really great, gorky's had more fans in the crowd than i expected. the manics played every song i really wanted to hear, including motown junk, and i loved all the new songs. the whole experience was just mind blowing, by miles and miles the best gig i had been to in my life to that point. i vividly remember the buzz on the train back. with perspective gained from the last 2 decades i can say with confidence that this album is bad and the songs on it are bad.

Perhaps relatedly? A few years ago, there was a news story on the radio about the plight of the cops in Egypt. Sounded like things were pretty bad for Egyptian cops.

I'm like huh? until I realized they were saying Copts.

Earlier today I was on a work conference call with some people in India, and we were discussing a business proposal where everything was expressed in dollars and needed to be changed to rubies.

Rubies? Are we seriously talking about being paid with chests full of gemstones? WTF? Is this like a fairy tale or something?

Then I realized everybody had been saying "rupees."

Officials also told NBC News that the report stated that Kim might be willing to open a Western hamburger franchise in the capital of Pyongyang as a gesture of goodwill toward Trump. Trump is well known for his preference for fast food like McDonald’s.

Dull story - One time (1990 or thereabouts) we had our works' Christmas do in Stringfellows (me neither), it was alright but at one point I decided to go up to the DJ box and request some Stone Roses (I know, I know), dude said "yeah, OK" and about 10-15 mins later he played "Fools Gold". It wasn't until I looked again I realised it was the man himself.

So, why would he be running the DJ decks during a fairly nondescript corporate booking, being fairly low-key himself? I guess he enjoyed the work.

There you go, finished now, wake up..

Slight edit for lol maximisation:

See, I see things like that and wonder about the target market. If you love a band (any band) enough to shell out $500, you already have all their records, loads of B-sides, loads of live records.

The idea that there's something SO NEW on exactly this compilation that it is worth a week's salary seems bonkers to me. But then I am not a PhishHead / Phishohpile / Ichthyologist / Treymonger (or whatever they're called; don't tell me because I don't care).

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, musk be in want of a wife.

rename "socialism" to "legal weed"

― devops mom (silby), Thursday, 28 June 2018 21:53

...

One of the things I love about the word "socialism" is that it sounds nice and has the word "social" in it. Like it just doesn't sound scary no matter how hard you try to make it sound scary.
