Formerly Felines for Anarchistic Green Democracies

A Bostonian at the University of Michigan.

There will also be discussion of the New England Patriots, Miami Dolphins, and Michigan Wolverines. Probably in that order.

Friday, February 04, 2005  
As you may or may not have noticed, things have changed around here. Things like the blog name, as the old one made sense about a billion years ago when I was young and obsessed with surrealism and this was basically a place for me make pathetic surrealist writings in the finest high school tradition. Then it became a diary blog, like every other blog in the universe. And now it's, well, this-- a sports blog that occasionally has something on it about how much the Michigan art school is kicking my ass.

The two teams at the forefront, obviously (or perhaps not), are the Red Sox and the Lions. Hence, the name. I'm still the Feline Anarchist around the web in some circles, Boston Fan in MIchigan in others, Samcat to confused professors who email me and realize that my university email address is not in any way related to my last name, but this here blog is now Blue Cats and Red Sox and, deep down, I think we're all pretty happy about this.

I also changed the colors because orange, red, and blue was nice back in the day, but it just wasn't cutting it anymore. So we get the incredibly not-websafe version of what happens when I try to combine the Red Sox and Lions color schemes. I mean, none of those colors are on the 216 palette, but hopefully you can see them OK anyways. If not, get a new computer, you freaking luddite.


In other news.

Tonight we had a lecture by Bill Griffiths, the guy who draws Zippy the Pinhead, and his wife, who has a character called Didi Glitz. They were both pretty funny, although the general consensus afterwards was that Bill was much better. I think most of the guys were a little put-off by the almost violently feminist leanings of Didi Glitz. Oh well. I thought she was good. A lot of creepy, comic book collector types showed up for this thing, which was interesting. I knew Ann Arbor housed some amazingly pretentious 'art patrons', because they showed up in sweatered droves to last year's end-of-the-year student show, but I didn't realize we had such a large ScaryBaldingComicBookGuy population too.

Ann Arbor, man. We're all about the diversity.


I was relatively dismayed when I popped onto East Coast Agony this evening (very early morning) to see if those lazy buggers had updated yet and saw that they had. With a Red Sox 'blog rollcall', something that seemed like it was going to bear an uncomfortable resemblance to what the RantBlog will be when I post it, which will hopefully be this weekend but the damn thing is turning out so long that I've given up putting a time on it. You'll get it when it's done.

Anyways, I read the ECA post and was worried, and immediately started thinking I should've posted at least part of the RantBlog installment, even if it was unfinished. It's OK, though. It's different. There's some overlap, but the analysis is different and I'm looking at different Sox sites than he is, plus all the other teams. Expand your reading, guys, embrace the tangled web of the blogosphere.

I'd just like to take a moment to thank Kyle for mentioning me, Mer and Beth in there. But come on. "All three offer pretty much the same content, i.e. rabid and insanely in-depth conversation about the Sox and Pats, and pretty much every other sporting event known to man." Dude. Beth covers the Sox and Pats. Mer covers the Sox and Eagles. I cover the Sox, Lions, Pats, occasionally the Dolphins, and there will be more Tigers content this coming season than there has been in the past. Plus I think I was the only one of the three talking about college football when it was in season because, quite frankly, I'm the only one who's crazy enough to care about it.

That's not even getting into the writing styles. But whatever, it's 4:45 am and I'm not really thinking straight right now. I'm going to read this tomorrow and wonder what the hell happened.


It is true that these things are short and silly, but it is also true that some of them made me rupture my gall bladder in sheer, unabated amusement.

I quote:

"CowboyCurtS:  Yankees, eh?

BiguNYt:  A-yup.

CowboyCurtS:  So you have to shave your moustache off?
BiguNYt:  :( I didn't think of that...

CowboyCurtS:  I heard they make you style your pubic region into an "NY" fashion, too.

BiguNYt:  D: "

Lots of things are funnier at 4:45 am, but I tend to think I'll at least get a chuckle out of these in the morning.


Dirt Dogs? Can you please stop writing things that sounds like you're assuming the Pats are going to win on Sunday? New England going to the Superbowl is like watching the movie Groundhog Day? Don't be a punk after Pats win? Can we stop this now?

Am I the only one out there who's going insane with worry over this game? People, I know it's an NFC team, but Donovan McNabb! Jevon Kearse! Jeremiah Trotter! TO's fibula! These are not forces to be reckoned with. The Pats are looking to lose both their offensive and defensive cooridnators after this game (Weis to Notre Dame and Crennel, allegedly, to the Bears). And, for whatever it's worth, this is a Patriots team that lost to the Dolphins. The Dolphins. If they lost to the Dolphins it's entirely possible for them to lose to the Eagles.

And speaking of the Dolphins... Edgerrin James might want to return home and play for the 'Fins? Holy cats. If this happened... well. The Colts want to hang onto him, but I'm not sure how able they are to do this, what with Infinte Audibles eating up so much of their salary cap all by his long-faced lonesome. If the 'Fins came somehow procure him, and get Feeley full control over the QB spot, next year could be pretty damn good.

My eyes just started shutting on their own and I now am afraid of falling asleep and drooling onto my keyboard. G'night, kids.
