Devyn Marble Scouting Report (for those who want something more substantial)

6

I just realized that he'd be a perfect fit for the Bulls in the 2nd round. He can handle the ball decently, shoot decently, create for others decently, defend decently. An all-around PG/SG backup. As a 2nd rounder. Will probably never be great, but in my mind, he's smart enough and works hard enough and has shown consistent improvement enough that he MIGHT be a legitimate starter 5 years down the road for a solid 4-6 years. With that said, Marble is one of the younger seniors in this draft, not turning 22 until September, and there is a very high demand for players who can shoot both from a standstill and coming off of a screen, use their length defensively, and make sound decisions with the ball.

HAMSTERDAM LAMENTS THE END OF A GOOD THING

739

Like many of you, I have had DirecTV as my "cable" provider for the past several years. And as seems to be the general consensus, I've been pretty dang happy with their service. It's a bit pricey after the intro rate, like all cable carriers, but I have always had stellar service from this company that just seems to be one of the few that really cares about its customers instead of quarterly sales number calls (hi Zappos!) Well, as you may have heard, DirecTV is going to be acquired by AT&T for ~$50B, or in reality closer to ~$65B if you include the debt they're assuming. And it's not looking likely to be stopped by anti-trust laws. So I assume things will be as per usual for a while, but you'll see customer un-friendly tactics start to creep in over time. It's the way these things go, especially when assumed by that most evil of company categories: consumer electronic media delivery.

HAMSTERDAM FOUND BATFFLECK

Zack Snyder teased the new Batmobile earlier this week, and now he's gone a step further with a black & white image of Batffleck. Look at those teeny ears. AAWWWW. As is the norm, thanks to UPROXX for the heads up.

BHGP Talks 2014 Iowa Football at Lake the Posts

Jacobi represented the Pants over at Lake the Posts and chatted about Iowa football in 2014. There are jokes! And real football talk! Give it a click.

HAMSTERDAM CAN'T FIND ANY DIMES

762

I could tell you that the reason I cribbed so much from the title of Mexican't's last Hamsterdam intro would be because of the recent confluence of a lot of Hamsterdam subjects (Mel Brooks, racism, etc) and horse-punching GIFs and the like, but really I just saw a pun waiting and I like puns. If you haven't already figured it out, the link is the tollbooth clip from BLAZING SADDLES. It's probably the tamest part of the movie, but all clips from that movie should probably considered NSFW. Happy Hamsterdamming, all.

HAMSTERDAM LIKES IT HARDCORE

744

The damn things only get released about every sixty days, but that exclusivity makes Dan Carlin's superb Hardcore History podcasts all the more desirable. Latest one went up yesterday, and the trailing last ten episodes are always free at his website linked above or your favorite podcasting site. I haven't heard the new one yet, so no spoilers!

HAMSTERDAM REMINDS YOU THAT CHER STARTED THE FIRE

725

Damn it, Cher. You started this. First you had to have that horrible song "Believe" hit #1 and have everyone go crazy trying to figure out how you did that annoying voice modulation in the chorus/title. Turns out the "Cher effect" (as it was originally known) was just working with autotune. Now We have hundreds of thousands of people thinking the "I AM T-PAIN" app on their phone is funny, or ruining the glory that was our intro to Antoine Dodson and Charles Ramsey by autotuning them into stupid songs. They were glorious before people thought ruining them with autotune made it funnier! It didn't! They were perfect before! Now they're annoying! DAMN IT CHER!!!!

Collegiate Walking Canes

Custom walking canes. Does anyone care… I do. Luv Canada (sometimes) but someone in US should do this too.

HAMSTERDAM HAS SHOWERTHOUGHTS

413

Somebody posted a Reddit Showerthoughts link in a previous Hamsterdam, thought I'd share some of my favorites and see if you guys like the link: "Can Chewbacca even say Chewbacca? Shouldn't his name be something like Rawwwraaraar?" "It would make more sense if 3 had the value of 4 because the number 3 looks like half of the number 8" "Pizza is always a pie chart about how much pizza is left." "Nature Valley bars make so many crumbs because they want you to eat them outside."
