No, but I would steer you away from sliding patio doors in general, they suck.  I'd go with a french door, every time.

So I won my silly office fantasy football pool last year. 

It's all women, except for me because they couldn't find a last owner.  I didn't ask to play.  I actually have almost no interest in fantasy football because I'm tired after fantasy baseball season.  But I did it kind of as a favor to help them out.  They were not happy that the one male in the group won.

So this year, I was like "Hey, if you found someone else to play that's cool."  And they were all "No, you can't win and then quit!"  So fine, I'll play again.  But then they started tinkering with the rules because the person who had the best QB lost and didn't think that was right, and etc.  So now the rules are basically you get 10 zillion points for passing TD's, and 10 zillion bonus points for throwing over 300 yards, etc.  QB's are stupidly over-rated.  Kickers and defense are useless.  Why?  Because I won my last two playoff games on 1) the kicker and 2) Chiefs defense.

So then they did the Yahoo! autodraft thing.  But they decided that no one was allowed to customize their draft rankings due to some passive-aggressive idea of "oh we're not competing but we really are."  The draft rankings from Yahoo are of course all wrong because they don't account for the rule changes.  I pointed out that this was silly and basically whoever got lucky and drafts Payton Manning wins.  This suggestion was not taken kindly. 

So the autodraft was this weekend.  I got Payton Manning.  I also got Montee Ball, Julius Thomas, DeMaryius Thomas.  And Jamaal Charles.  It's ridiculous.  I am projected to beat my opponent in week 1 by 150 to 95.  Everyone is complaining about it.

My fiance and I need to replace our sliding patio door, anybody got a place they'd recommend to us? Or a place that they'd steer us away from?

Nice one, cheers :)

I had to add Classless Kids straight off the bat. It's the last song on Young Summer's debut album, so I think it might be largely missed. It's also a bit of a change of pace from the rest of the album - less synth-heavy but still very ethereal.

Heathers: I am told this is a satire and a dark comedy. I have to state that I do not understand dark comedies. I just don't get them. There's no humor in the fact that the main character MURDERED someone and was an accessory to two other murders. And the movie moves on like "hey, not important!" Other than that, the colors of the girls was interesting. It felt like an earlier version of 'Mean Girls' to an extent, too.

Boyhood: that was ambitious. Lots of good things to talk about, but I'll start with the negatives: It felt self-important the whole time but it was missing a plot (for good or bad). Some of the characters were awfully one dimensional (the professor guy, for instance). It hit awfully close to home in too many scenes for me regarding the awkwardness of growing up (I think that's a compliment, actually). I felt like it turned out that the kid wasn't much of an actor later in his childhood so they had to create a character that was stiff and introverted a bit. The first half of the movie should have been "Childhood" or "Family" or something so it could have encompassed more of the other characters (I quite liked the sister) but the second half was definitely about the boy. In the end, there was a lot of interesting things done and it's probably one of the better films of the year simply in what it was trying to accomplish. I don't know - I'm not slamming it and will probably like it the more I think about it.

The Past - this was one of the foreign films from the 2014 Awards Season. And boy oh boy did it try to take the label "foreign film" and live up to expectations. Small but poignant story, lots of "art", crazy characters, interesting perspectives, emotions run amok... stuff like that. It was well lit and the acting was great. But I can't recommend unless you are a movie buff...and I'm going to assume the movie buffs have already seen it.

This team is... good.

This team is... full of players I don't know!

I do miss the consistency of the past few years. I like bringing in a few fresh faces every year, but this off-season just threw that out the window. If this was FM, we'd be a middling team for 3 months while the chemistry issue was resolved.

Fixed.

For some reason I couldn't find the collaborative option using the web player, but it's right there in the desktop app. Gods spotify is weird.
