My Middle School Mix Tape
wheniwasakid: A list of songs I would have included on a mix CD, circa 1996 - 1998. Pretty much exclusively rap and R & B. 1. “Mo Money, Mo Problems” by Notorious B.I.G. featuring Puff Daddy and Mase — Still one of the catchiest songs ever. 2. “We Tryin’ to Stay Alive” by Wyclef and The Refugee All-Stars — The Carnival was a seminal album for me and this was my favorit song on it. 3. ...

ME: I know, I know--
MAN: So what I wanted to know was--
ME: No, you can't smoke up in the theater.

MAN: (disappointed) A'ight... (Hangs up.)

Some Improv Thoughts

Would batting A-Rod ninth instead of fourth make a big difference? Are stolen bases really worth the risk? What about intentional walks? This is a great article for baseball fans and stats nerds like me. If you’re not either, keep moving.
