It looks like the other one is about to die and I had two prompts come to mind. The first is a personal fun story. Every once in a while I'll happen upon some thread about the Mariners off of Lookout Landing and they'll use the nickname "Figlet," when referring to Chone Figgins, which some of you remember I invented in a gamethread when he first came to Seattle (and sucked). It's one of the reasons I understand why people try to invent nicknames all the time, because it's one of those little things that's really minor when I come across it, but then brightens my day a little bit. Do you, reader of Lookout Landing, have anything you see randomly pop up on the internet or elsewhere that you can take credit for and it brightens your day?
The second prompt is about Podcasts, which I know has been a topic numerous times in the past so I'll try to make it more specific:
- Free podcasts you recommend that are over an hour long each.
- Preferably funny, but if not funny then light hearted.
I hadn't listened to non-Lookout Landing podcasts in the past, but I realized it's a great thing to have on while I work and downloaded a bunch, including You Made it Weird and The Bugle. The hour long thing is just so they can play in the background for a long time without worrying about what to listen to next. I'm sure there are plenty others.
And, as usual, talk about whatever you want.
