Upcoming Programming Notes/Brainstorming Session

This is a post to say that I have posts I’m intending to write but I am too busylazy to write them–otherwise known as a preview! I also had the thought to open this thread up to brainstorming post ideas for anyone to pick up and write, or just share various ideas that maybe haven’t worked out just yet. Not that we need to or are getting paid to or have the time to post, no, just, well, because this has been fun so far and, hey, let’s see what we can do.

Sylvie Guillem evidentia

First off–upcoming posts I have planned:

  1. Bud Winston on Johnny Football’s rehab experiences
  2. The Pandora Football League with Mr. Torgue and Tiny Tina commentary
  3. Kommenter Kocktail Society: Summer Drank
  4. How To Make A Pie Crust That Will Win You Friends And Eventually Kill Them
  5. Something tying something to my Bike MS fundraising and figure out what embarrassing things should happen if I hit my fundraising goal (I’ll also beg you for money)

As for ideas I’ve had, here’s what I’ve thought of but either haven’t formed complete ideas on or half-assed it or something:

  1. I’ve thought about doing a “EKSK-Files” where I try to email previous KSK writers questions about their experiences writing for the site with favorite memories and a “What the fuck is up with Uproxx?” type question. I thought I might try Sarah first. Not sure if this would end up working, but, hey, it’s worth a shot, right?
  2. Doing another “Franchise Rescue” thing like I did in the league last year, but with the Eagles, maybe.
  3. Something something Derek Carr, because, like, FUCK, man, right? FUCK! /rubs meth into gums
  4. Something modern marketing bullshit something business jargon synergy NFL something shitty team
  5. The NFL by Hideo Kojima
  6. An entire article written by New School Zero

Anyway, that’s my bullshit. What you got?

  1. If you do a Kocktail post, here’s a recipe we came up while watching Game of Thrones last year. It’s called the “Trial by Combat”:

    Juice of 1/2 lemon (squeezed in fist)
    Juice of 1/2 orange (same)
    2 oz gin
    2 oz Campari
    1/2 oz sweet vermouth
    Pour over ice and fill remainder of glass with blood orange soda.

  2. I started writing a beer review and then deleted it, but I’ve still got a copy 0f the review and a copy of the beer, so I’ll probably take another shot at it in a few weeks.

    I don’t have anything else going on. The time it takes me after coming up with an idea to either write the thing or discard it is generally pretty short. I’m up for doing a Broncos preview, though.

  3. I’m planning on continuing the AFL Beat posts through the Grand Final. I may do a post on how people in LA can’t drive. Also, I’ll be going to Vancouver in less than a month with my brother’s family since the Women’s World Cup is there and both my nieces play, so I may do a Balls in Vancouver post.

      1. Nah, Balls, you called that one out, you can have it. I’ll think of something good for a post, though.

  4. I wrote most of a post about us hiring Bill Simmons, and then Sill joined up and it seemed a little odd to add Sill and write a joke article about Bill at the same time so I never posted it. It’s still lurking in the backend somewhere, mostly finished.

  5. Kommenter Kocktail Party: Beer. My local grocery store had 6 packs of all Ballast Point beers for $6.99. (Normally they run $13.99-$17.99 per.) I bought 15 total. I feel like I should have gotten more.

  6. Quite a program you have planned. I have no idea what half of your references are above.

    I think it would be fun if we did season previews for our teams, kind of like KSK does. I would love to hear all of your thoughts on your teams, like Packman’s take on the Packers (instead of whatever bandwagon guy from Canada did it last year), Balls/Sill on the Stillerzz, OSZ on the Chargers, Rikki on the Raiders, Sep on the Bucs, DTLZM on the St. Louis Cardinals (no… wait), etc.

    Also, you should ask NSZ about the whereabouts of Ottoman (hint: #Bengahzi)

    1. Hell yes. I think this is a great idea (the NFL season preview). I DON’T CARE IF YOU KNOW JUSTIN HALPERN A GUY WHO GOT FAMOUS ON TWITTER BUT COULDN’T PARLAY WILLIAM SHATNER SAYING CRAZY THINGS INTO A SUCCESSFUL TV SHOW; HIS TAKE ON THE SAN DIEGO CHARGERS IS LUKEWARM AND NOT A “GET” GODDAMNIT.

      1. make it snow plays it on an XBox of some kind, and DTZM is on GLORIOUS PC MASTER RACE platform (as is Mike Wallace and Gromit, I believe).

        Someday I’ll move up to PS4 (especially since I’m backing the kickstarter for the next game by the guy who did Castlevania Symphony Of The Night), but for now… I’m PrevGenSony limited.

      2. I’m on a 360, I don’t see myself upgrading to a next gen system any time soon. The replay value of Borderlands 2 is higher than it has any right to be also.

      3. I am also a proud PS3 and XBOX 360 owner, so I’ll play whatever. I actually have Borderlands 2 on PS3, but I got it through tPS Plus, and I let my PS Plus expire so now I can’t play. My name on Playstation and XBOX is readeaux91 though if you clowns want to be game palz.
