Brandon Phillips is actually a rather poor lead-off hitter.  How is that different really than him batting #2?  He's still supposed to be on base for Votto to drive in either way. 

Joey Votto should be batting leadoff for the Reds.  Unfortunately, Joey Votto should also be batting 2nd, 3rd, cleanup, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, and 9th for the Reds so that's kind of a dilemma.

That's not how eternal recurrence works.  It's not a metaphysical reincarnation but a mathematical concept.  You don't get greater and greater.  You live the exact same life an infinite amount of times.  It's a BAD thing, not a good thing.

If you are an ubermensch, then it's akin to the biblical concept of heaven in that your life is a blast, and you get to do it over and over.  For anyone who is not an ubermensch, it's more like the biblical concept of hell because your life sucks, and then you do it over and over.  And no one in Thus Spoke Zarathrustra is an ubermensch.

The ubermensch is akin to the biblical concept of God.  Except that Neitzsche makes the point that God is dead.  I think he's basically poking fun of the ubermensch concept.  Like, Zarathrustra has it pretty good.  Like you said, he's got his own mountain hideaway and a lion and he realizes that most men are quite stupid and beholden to other men as well as the concepts of God and good and evil.  So you would think that at the end of the book Zarathrustra would be like "Fuck it.  I don't give a shit about those guys."  But instead Zarathrustra decides to go down and preach again, even though he's already failed before, and it's been established mankind is quite hopeless, and that there is no God.  Why would he do that?

Yea, I saw that announcement too. Downgraded to mostly local bands, with the occasional national act.

Who knew CYHSY is still around?

They need to move Hamilton to the bottom of the lineup until he can show he can get on base in the majors. This is a team that should be competing for a playoff spot and can't waste games experimenting with the leadoff spot. Votto needs at-bats with guys on base. The primary job of the leadoff hitter is to get on base, not be stupidly fast.
well said! Hamilton is not ready for the big leagues, in fact. But the Reds have determined he is their guy, so if that is the case, move him down.

I'd move Brandon Phillips to lead-off. He'd done it plenty of times in his career, and with good result.

Yes, the final scene of the first season made me go "OMG!" I am totally in! Loved it.

I think the shock value stuff gets toned down in the subsequent seasons. It's still there, but there is notably less nudity, horse killing, etc. Still plenty of violence and gore I suppose.
Damn it.  I was looking forward to more horse neck cutting.

1. AHS - 01/11/14 - 1.5 hours - orientation sign-in for Saturday classes
2. AHS - 01/18/14 - 3.5 hours
3. AHS - 01/21/14 - 1 hour - Tuesday orientation
4. AHS - 01/25/14 - 3 hours - COLD playtimes and HEEL practice, but all of the dogs were much more well-behaved during class. They did their homework.
5. AHS - 02/01/14 - 3 hours - some great looking HEEL after only one week. Very impressive!
6. AHS - 02/04/14 - 3 hours - the behavior of the dogs in the second class might have been the best EVER for a first week.
7. AHS - 02/08/14 - 3 hours - One dog that seemed to be improving greatly TOTALLY had a bad week. He wouldn't calm down for anything. His owners were SO frustrated.
8. AHS - 02/15/14 - 3 hours - Every dog graduated and we had the best set of dog tricks that we've seen since I've been helping her.
9. AHS - 02/18/14 - 3 hours - lots of cuties to love in these classes.
10. AHS - 03/01/14 - 2.5 hours - helped get people signed in for the new round of orientations and then walked 6 or 7 dogs. My favorite was named HALLOWEEN. Super-connecty (PET ME MORE!), not bad on the leash, and he liked to play with toys.
11. AHS - 03/04/14 - 3 hours - graduation for Tuesday night classes. Only 4 dogs came to the first class but all 11 dogs came to the second class. One dog jumped through a hoop for his trick. It was the most amazing jump I've ever seen. She tucked those back legs up so tight and got some serious air. It was like watching a cartoon circus flea.
12. AHS - 03/08/14 - 3 hours
13. AHS - 03/11/14 - 1 hour - new orientation for Tuesday classes
14. AHS - 03/15/14 - 3 hours
15. AHS - 03/18/14 - 3.5 hours - walked a couple of dogs before Tuesday classes
16. AHS - 03/22/14 - 5 hours - 3 classes - Phew.
17. AHS - 03/25/14 - 3.5 hours - I walked Macho (love), King, and Fauster and then helped out with class.
18. AHS - 03/29/14 - 4.5 hours - 3 classes - picked up pee, poo, and vomit today. It was special. Next week is graduation already. WOW.
19. AHS - 04/01/14 - 3.5 hours - walked King and Kai and then helped with two classes.
20. AHS - 04/05/14 - 4.5 hours - aaaaaaaaaall of the graduations!!!! The Next Step graduation at Ansley Mall was nice thanks to PERFECT weather. Lots of people walking around and observing the dogs.
21. AHS - 04/08/14 - 2 hours - the big German Shephard is SOOOOOOOOOO much better than he was 3 weeks ago. I love when you can tell that owners have bought into the training program.
22. AHS - 04/12/14 - 1 hour - Orientation!
23. AHS - 04/15/14 - 3 hours - pretty lame graduations for both classes. No outstanding tricks. Awful weather.

Total: 67 hours
