Scrupulosity: Where OCD Meets Religion, Faith, and Belief

Scrupulosity: Where OCD Meets Religion, Faith, and Belief Please take a minute and read the following article from the OCD Center of Los Angeles.  Many people probably have the notion that Obsessive Compulsion Disorder (OCD) is a somewhat harmless psychological problem that involves nothing worse than washing your hands a lot.  A somewhat more debilitating version of OCD was featured on the show “Monk” that starred Tony Shalhoub as the eponymous title character.  In the show, Adrian Monk is a b...

Angels make Mike Trout’s 12-year, $426.5-million deal official

TEMPE, Ariz. — Maybe all the mystery about Mike Trout’s future shouldn’t have been such a concern after all. “This is where I wanted to be all along,” Trout said in a statement included in the Angels’ official announcement of their 12-year, $426.5-million deal with their superstar. A day after the news broke, the Angels finalized the deal on Wednesday night, completing the largest contract in the history of North American sports. Trout did not speak with reporters before playing in an intrasquad...

Wednesday Open Mike: Diet Progress

[I didn't write an Open Mike—"the anything-goes, often off-topic editorial page of TOP"—last week, so I'm being indulgent with myself this week. I stuck it behind a page break in case you'd rather skip it. On that heading, it's always wise to bear in mind that not every post here is for everybody. That's how I think of blogging as I write. Sometimes the posts are for 90% of all my readers, sometimes as few as 5%, and there are posts for every percentage in between. It's all good, though, because...

New Music: Comethazine Feat. A$AP Rocky “Walk (Remix)”

To properly roll out his “Walk” remix featuring A$AP Rocky, Comethazine premiered the song on Beats 1 Radio with Zane Lowe. The St. Louis talent then spoke on how the energy between him and Rocky spawned the collab. Stream after the jump… “I fuck with Rocky, bro. We both walk around like that for real, basically. So, he just relates to me a lot, he’s got a real good energy. He’s real creative.” The original song appeared on Comethazine’s Bawskee 2 project, released at the top of the year....

The All-St. Louis Hockey Team

Though it is not known as a hockey hot bed, the city of St. Louis has produced a number of terrific NHL talents over the years. Never was this more apparent than when five prospects from the city were drafted in the first round of the 2016 NHL Draft. Now that those players have arrived in the big league, it’s a good time to consider who might make the All-St. Louis hockey team. It’s almost a complete group of active players with a few creative additions. Let’s take a look at the squad. Forward...

‘Stranger Things’ Season 3 Trailer Breakdown: The Upside (Down) of a Teenage Wasteland

It’s the first day of spring, which means summer is right around the corner. And you know what that means: Stranger Things is back. The third season of the hit Netflix series just debuted its official trailer, giving us a glimpse of a summer of big changes for the kids of Hawkins, Indiana. Aside from the obvious first trappings of puberty, the gang’s dynamic is shifting as romance is in the air and fireworks are flying.

Dodgers’ Walker Buehler looks strong in late spring debut

GLENDALE, Ariz. — The Dodgers ace-in-waiting has done more waiting than pitching this spring. But right-hander Walker Buehler finally got in a game Tuesday night, throwing 46 pitches over 2-2/3 innings (many traveling a healthy 98 mph). He gave up three singles, struck out two and was charged with a run when his last baserunner eventually scored. “It was good – a little erratic, a little all over the place,” Buehler said. “But that’s what these games are for.” It might have been Buehler’s first ...

In Love With My Bouquet – Jessica

Jess and Mike celebrated with an incredible and colourful wedding in Sydney – and of course, this being our ‘Bouquet Issue’, she tells us all about her bouquet choices below. One word: “wow!” I’m SO passionate about wedding flowers. So much so, that I’ve done flowers for other people’s weddings on a few occasions. I wanted our bouquets to be unique and different from one other; incorporating beautiful Australian tones and natives, and being quite distinct in size and shape. Continue reading In L...

Alexander: Mike Trout’s Angels deal rewards baseball’s best, and most humble, star

The biggest takeaway from the news of Mike Trout’s impending mega-contract: Humility pays. And maybe there’s a certain amount of karma involved in the idea that the guy who doesn’t try to sell himself, doesn’t make headlines off the field, and doesn’t try to get managers fired or set himself above his teammates just got the richest current contract in pro sports. Those commentators along the Eastern Seaboard who salivated over the idea of Trout becoming a Phillie or a Yankee after his contract r...

Boyds At-One Thumbhole Stock breathes Fresh Life into a Remington Model 597 Rifle

Remington Model 597 Rifle USA – -( Sometimes when you're a firearm collector (or more accurately, an accumulator) you pick up a piece or two that come along as part of the deal. For me it was a Remington Model 597 Ducks Unlimited rifle in 22 lr. I have plenty of rimfire rifles, but this one was part of a package deal that was too good to pass up. Back in 2011, Remington Arms partnered with Ducks Unlimited, the world's largest non-profit organization dedicated to conserving waterf...

Killing Themselves Softly With Complexification-Saturation

Just wanted to reiterate this. (I've said it before, here and there.) This is a renegade, outsider, beyond-the-pale, meta viewpoint, but... ...I still think the camera companies are killing themselves with complexity. It's easier to figure out a new computer than it is to figure out a new camera. A few mavens can do it; nobody will admit to not being able to do it; but here's what I think is happening: I think most buyers of high-end enthusiast-level interchangeable lens (IL) cameras bought one ...

Real Options

Just musing here. Mulling over the comments about the Range Rover thing, how's this for a concept.... A.) you pay a healthy amount of money for a luxury car, maybe double what you'd pay for a similar mainstream non-luxury version of something similar, b.) you get presented with a list of options, and c.) tick as many boxes as you want, configure your car just the way you like... ...NO CHARGE. That's having options! I predict the first company to do this will make out like bandits. Kia could do i...

2019 Cross Country 101 Clinic

The day was almost completely overcast throughout the day except for a little bit of blue around 2 PM. The wind was out of the north 9 - 12 mph. It was a little over 60 degrees (Fahrenheit) . I didn't think that we would be able to do anything. Then Mick Howard, my fellow mentor, suggested that we tow everyone to 3,000' and have them go downwind to a absolutely huge landing field at Pine Lake Road and highway 33. It would be a 3.6:1 glide. Why not? Some of the students had never landed out...

GRAYWOLF RODS - McFarland Rods Yellow Glass 7'6" Spinning Rod

After a couple of decades really being a "Fly Only" kind of guy, lately I've seen where a spinning rod would be helpful to have around and asked Shane Gray of Graywolf Rods if he could talk Mike McFarland of McFarland Rods into rolling a medium heavy spinning rod blank.  It took some work to get right but Mike made up a beauty in yellow glass, four pieces for ease of travel and of course Shane's done a great job on the build that should arrive on my doorstep early next week.
