No one asked because not only did no one care, but because everyone assumed that things would go on as normal because that’s what the fuck people do, men, women, grand or otherwise. The only reason anyone is talking about this is because Hillary Clinton has lady parts. And, no matter how you wanna sputter, “But…no,” it comes out sexist.

It’s almost guaranteed that almost any male literary person under the age of 45 is going to be somewhat versed in soccer,” said Sean Wilsey, a writer who helped edit “The Thinking Fan’s Guide to the World Cup,” a 2006 compilation of essays by the likes of Dave Eggers and Robert Coover.

I’ve always been Peter W. Knox, long before I couldn’t get PeterKnox.com. This is our fraternity composite, back in 2003.

Apparently I was singing this way back in HS even. 

And all of the weight I’ve added, I call Wiley Weight.

Sure enough, at five-to-midnight, Harvey walks out and sees me loitering around in the lobby. He goes, “I’m coming back! It’s killing!” And he leaves. The guy did us the biggest favor. With 15 minutes left to go in the film, he comes back in, slides back into his seat, and at the end of the screening there’s this excitement. He comes up to me and says, “I’m going to do you a favor. Come meet me at the bar.” We met up at the bar for last call and had a drink with him. When people saw us hanging around with Harvey after that movie, the other studios were like, “Oh, shit. We’d better fucking get on this.” He created a market for the film basically by shadow play. He didn’t even see the middle of the movie.
