[[Brazil Lose]] [[World Cup]]
1 (2) - 1 (4) in PKs

⚽️ [[Neymar]] scored in the second half of extra time, which looked like the game winning goal…
⚽️ Bruno Petkovic scored minutes later for Croatia to send it to PKs

[[Rodrygo]] missed Brazil’s opening PK;
[[Casemiro]] made the second;
[[Pedro]] made the third;
[[Marquinhos]] missed the fourth - and final - with Croatia making all four of theirs.

Possession was even, but Brazil dominated on Shots with 21 and 11 on goal vs 9 and 1 on goal.

The tributes they paid were touching and emotional, the building up of Shuri and Riri were great alongside the stalwarts of Okoye and Nakia (played by Lupita who was terrific and stunning as well). 

The only thing this movie needed less of was white people and Marvel tie-ins. I really enjoyed the Namor/Aztec background story they created for the film and Huerta played Namor terrifically, as one of the better Marvel villains, better than Killmonger even?

The last battle did seem to have some stilted timing things going on and there were a couple odd character decisions in the middle, but I’ll forgive them for that. 

It sucks that it takes having to be Marvel to get an epic story of Afro-futurism and Aztec-futurism (is that a thing?) made in Hollywood because it’s really just the Marvel aspects holding this film back.

COBY!!!

Missed posting after Monday’s win vs Celtics.

  • Fun game that came down to the wire. First win for the Bulls this season in a close, clutch game 0-7 previously.
  • Had moments where there was actually defensive effort.
  • Fell in love with the three ball, which almost killed them. Think their final 8 shots were threes and all misses until [[Coby]] (4/7 from 3) hit one to tie, and then another on the next possession to take the lead, and then [[Vooch]] hit the nail in the coffin from deep as the shot clock dwindled.
  • All starts but Ayo hit double digits, with Coby and JaVonte reaching that mark as well and [[DeMar]] leading with a 36/4/8 line.

[[Bulls Lose]] vs Magic
6-10

Starting to feel like they will never win again.
Only watched the first half tonight.
Honestly, didn’t hate how they played tonight; [[LaVine]] just couldn’t get anything going (1/14)… even with [[DeMar]] going for another 40 piece they couldn’t overcome that poor shooting.
Continue to like how [[Ayo]] and [[PatWil]] are playing. I think the high end goal should be for them to combine for ~30 — they went for 13 and 12, respectively, tonight.

They host Boston on Monday…

[[Bulls Lose]] Vs Nuggets
6-8

Tough night for the Bulls yesterday. Only watched the first half, but the Nuggets are just a much better team and Bulls couldn’t really get anything going on either end.

  • [[DeMar]] has been struggling to get things going after a fast start–very well could be age a bit starting to show.
  • [[PatWil]] and [[Ayo]] continue to have moments and progress.
  • Defense continues to be the Achilles heel + lack of real PG in the starting line-up. Both of those things get solved if/when [[Lonzo]] ever returns (be it at full strength)…
    • Not that it will make the Bulls a real contender either way.

[[Bulls Lose]]

@mintie and the 76ers are now my worst enemies.

If you erase Q1, I was overall happy with the way the Bulls played. Ultimately, Philly has Embiid and that’s all that matters, especially when the Bulls get stagnant in Q4. Bench didn’t show up much today either given [[Ayo]] and [[Drummond]] being out.

3-4

[[Bulls Lose]] …

Missed the first half…

No [[LaVine]] tonight and disappointing shooting night for [[Vooch]]. [[DeMar]] came through again with 33 and [[Coby]] dropped in 19 along with a strong perf from the Dungeons and Dragon duo off the bench.
Despite the Bulls winning major categories: bench points, fast break points, second chance points - it wasn’t enough to win as Spurs edged them out in 3pt shooting.

3-3

Another [[Bulls Win!]]

Shotmaking and ball movement was working on a whole different level.
Slower game for [[DeMar]] , but [[LaVine]] was firing on all levels and I think we had 7 guys in double digits, including [[PatWil]]!

3-2

[[Bulls Win!]]
Huge comeback - note to come


Welcome to the world, from your friends at Gawké


Kathleen Kennedy’s stewardship of the movie franchise continues to baffle as a key right-hand exits and a new film, perhaps the one in development with Damon Lindelof, isn’t expected until at least 2025, six years after ‘Rise of Skywalker.’ With Marvel churning out multiple movies every year, such a massive pause is borderline corporate negligence.


Massive cost-cutting is only the first of the palliatives planned for Musk’s privately-owned Twitter. Plus, the inside conversation on Wall Street about Netflix’s stock rebound and Larry Fink’s Marshall Plan.


Chicago was missing Lonzo Ball, while Cleveland was without Darius Garland. It won’t get any easier: the Bulls face the Boston Celtics next.


Martin McDonagh, the man behind ‘In Bruges,’ ‘Seven Psychopaths,’ and ‘The Banshees of Inisherin,’ thinks he might be mellowing out.

[[Bulls Lose]]
Rough game… [[Cavs]] couldn’t miss a shot, which wasn’t helped by the Bulls low energy on D. No Garland for CLE either.
I actually liked the approach to start, with [[LaVine]] running the show a bit and getting [[Vooch]] some early and easy looks. But it was all down hill from there.
Worst games of the season for [[DeMar]] and [[Ayo]] . And we don’t even need to talk about [[PatWil]] …
But when CLE shoots 60% from three with no corner threes, it’s going to be a rough night…

Not expecting better results Monday vs Boston…

The Squad levitated to power in D.C. with unprecedented juice, aplomb, power, and media savvy. But what’s their purpose, or message, in a post-Trump, pre-possible-mini-red-wave world? And will they add new members?


Spending time in the creative headspace is its own reward, so says Richard Parks III in this profile by Skye Pillsbury.


News and notes on the industry’s inside conversation: a check-in on the Tapper experiment, Murdoch curiosities, and Semafor’s launch.


After a yearlong humbling on Wall Street, Reed Hastings and Ted Sarandos’ victory-lap earnings call was both offensive and defensive—an F-U to the haters who cast doubt on the company’s ability to remain disruptive. Some arguments landed more solidly than others.

[[Bulls Lose]]
No LaVine again and obviously no Lonzo… but bad defense and bad ball movement in the 4th along with an over reliance on [[DeMar]].
Solid night from [[Vooch]] 24 next to DeMar’s 32, but basically no production from anyone else.
Have actually been pretty impressed with [[Coby]] ’s improved decision making and learning to pick his spots off the bench to add in 10pts.


Russia, which sees itself as an unjustly deposed military superpower reclaiming its rightful place on the world stage, views Iran as a small regional power that can be used as it sees fit. Ironic, then, that Russia has turned to a junior partner for basic weapons as it runs out of its own.


A new three-part Netflix docuseries, Eat the Rich: The GameStop Saga, captures the essence of how the collective action of retail investors, relying largely on Reddit posts and their own desire to “stick it to the man,” nuked Melvin Capital. Bob Sloan, a star of the film, explains what the industry has learned ever since.


The humble email newsletter, which became a star in its own right, appears headed back to earth.


Netflix naysayers suggest that the forthcoming ad-supported tier will cheapen the brand, lead subscribers to downgrade, and lower the ARPU. But it’s actually an opportunity for the company to accelerate its pivot to its own O&O sitcoms, procedurals, and other content that its users already crave and its future ad partners lust over.


Look beyond the print question


A crackdown in August on voter fraud announced by Gov. Ron DeSantis seems to have ensnared former felons who were puzzled that they were accused of violating voting laws.


Each player on this season’s Bulls roster carries questions only the upcoming 82-game ride will answer.


News and notes and underground rumblings on the far- and center-right, from Kanye buying Parler to the Tucker Carlsonization of McCarthy’s G.O.P.

Let’s go! [[Bulls Win!]]

No [[Lonzo]] - out for a couple months. No [[LaVine]] - out for who knows how long… starting to feel like the knee is worse than they are letting on… So [[Ayo]] and [[Caruso]] get the start.

Slow start for the Bulls, but they managed to keep it pretty close throughout the first half (after some really poor shooting) while being saved by [[Dragic]] being able to knock down some threes.
In Q3, [[DeMar]] went absolutely crazy, which the Heat could never really recover from. Ended up with 37pts and 9asts plus 2/3 from 3!
Shot wasn’t falling for [[Vooch]] , but he rebounded especially well (17) and played some really solid D on Bam, notching in 3 blocks.
Big surprise of the night was [[Ayo]] , who was 3/6 from 3 and went for 17/6/4 as the starting PG. He played aggressive all night, which was great to see. If he adds some real playmaking to his game he can be something.

If ever healthy, the “Bench Mob” could be back in Chicago. If you slide [[JaVonte]] In as the starting 4 to give that group some energy, you could have:
PG: [[Dragic]]
SG: [[Ayo]]
SF: [[Caruso]]
PF: [[PatWil]]
C: [[Drummond]]
The Dragic/Drummond combo is already humming and would give PatWil an oppt to play away from DeMar/LaVine so he can be more aggressive. Plus Ayo/Caruso on the wings who can shoot, play make, and defend. [[Coby]] ends up the odd man out, plus I think [[Dalen]] Terry will ease into some productive minutes as a rookie.

Great win for the Bulls to start the season in what will be a competitive East. Giving me a ton more hope than I had going in.
Felt so good to watch this group run again.

Elvis, 2022 - ★★★★

I enjoyed this quite a bit. Austin Butler is sensational as Elvis. It’s definitely style over substance and I tend to like music bio pics when the focus is more on the music, which isn’t the case here, but I still found myself pretty enthralled. There’s probably a good 25min that could be cut from the second half of this movie alone, and I would have much preferred that time be focused on the music earlier on in his career.…

But even without the nostalgia, thought they did a great job at telling a compelling story, with some great emotional and action beats throughout the whole film. Never a boring moment.…

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, 2022 - ★★★ (contains spoilers)

This review may contain spoilers. It was fine. Some cool horror elements and some creative deaths, especially Black Bolt and Mr. Fantastic. The music battle was pretty cool too. Still just the marvel formula with a horror twist. Kind of getting tired of everything having to be so tied to the MCU, but the incursion stuff from Hickman’s Avengers run, which seems like it might be the path to the next End Game, was cool.…

I loved the opening; there were some really great shots that felt pulled directly from comic book panels. Hated The Riddler costume and bane-ified voice.
