3 Things

Yeah, I know it's shameful how infrequently I have, as Jim Anchower would say, rapped at ya. Alas, I've been busy and kind of stressed, what can I say? How about 3 quick links?

1. "In the Wheelhouse," the podcast that Brandon and I have been talking about for the last 6 months or so, is finally up and running! Head over to the In the Wheelhouse website to ch-ch-check it out! We're definitely still finding our voice, but if you're a fan of extremely low-key discussions of music, claymation, and my personal gambling woes, this is the place for you!

2. If you're feeling confused by the relentless polling and looking for a place to figure out where things are actually trending in the presidential race, I'd suggest (via my friend Mike's excellent recommendation) that you head over to FiveThirtyEight, the excellent political blog started by PECOTA inventor and former East Lansing debator Nate Silver. Every time I start freaking out about, say, the Republican post-convention bounce, I head over there their reasoned analysis is like putting a warm towel on my forehead.

3. Finally, if you're looking for something a little lighthearted this afternoon, here's the Spider-Man theme song, broken down by the incomparable Joe Posnanski . I'd be remiss if I didn't include the iconic opening sequence here in full:
