General Off-Topic Board / ITT We Wish mpark/Rita a Happy 21st Birthday
« on: February 01, 2007, 07:21:25 AM »
Twenty-one years ago no one could have foreseen the ray of sunshine that mpark would come to be in the lives of everyone she met.  Now thanks to her advanced age she can finally spread this sunshine into dive bars and liquor stores alike.

Happy Birthday mpark!

General Off-Topic Board / ITT We wish Strad a happy birthday
« on: January 21, 2007, 12:36:09 PM »
23 years ago today our dear Strad was born.  The fervor of my birthday wishes for her is outweighed only by the gratitude I feel for her parents, who could not have foreseen that their copulation in mid-1983 would come to effect such delight inside all our hearts.

General Off-Topic Board / Feminism and Athletics
« on: January 16, 2007, 04:25:48 PM »
Since Title IX came into effect in 1972, the number of young women participating in athletics has increased astronomically.  Furthermore, young women today seem to care much more about their physical appearance in terms of appearing athletic and toned--traits that have not always been associated with attractiveness in females.  It used to be that men were thought to be the athletic, quick, and strong ones, but now these traits are becoming more desirable in women. 

You might think that this development would be a positive force for the cause of women, but is it?  I recently walked into the gym at school and looked over the elliptical machines to see literally dozens of girls--all with their hair back in ponytails, all furiously working to trim those two or three excess pounds off their legs in order to attain that perfect athletic figure.  Are they working to develop their own fitness and their own health, or are they working in order to impress the guys?  If it is the latter (which in many instances I suspect it is), is this really a healthy thing for women to be doing to themselves?  Where do you draw the the line between expressing yourself through athletics, as opposed to living up to the expectations of others?

General Off-Topic Board / ITT I try to befriend J and halfie
« on: January 11, 2007, 06:22:02 PM »
In honor of mpark and AnnaB...

J and halfie:

I realize that controversial subjects such as pronoun usage and ultimate frisbee have derailed our relationships, but I really think that if we ignored these differences of opinion, we could be friends. 

I also realize that you could be annoyed by my constant flirtations with female members of the board, but please--take these with a grain of salt.  It's all in good fun, and you would be better off either ignoring me or making snide but good-hearted remarks. 

So in conclusion, I propose that we start anew and forgive recent misgivings in an effort to make the LSD off-topic board a more relaxed place for all.

I mainly listen to albums, so I am going to make my top ten album list of 2006 here.  If you'd rather say top ten songs you can do that too.  Or just best 2 or 3 albums, or best 2 or 3 songs, whatever.

Hank's Top Ten Albums of 2006

1. "Modern Times" by Bob Dylan
2. "'Sno Angel Like You" by Howe Gelb
3. "I Am not Afraid of You and I Will Beat Your Ass" by Yo La Tengo
4. "Return to Cookie Mountain" by TV on the Radio
5. "Boys and Girls in America" by the Hold Steady
6. "The Crane Wife" by The Decemberists
7. "Broken Boy Soldiers" by The Raconteurs
8. "Destroyer's Rubies" by Destroyer
9. "Everything All The Time" by Band of Horses
10. "The Avalanche" by Sufjan Stevens

Overall a decent year for music, not as good as last year or 2003 though.
