"EH" and "SH"? Scrabble's no fun when people start playing kind-of-sort-of words. I don't care what the Scrabble rulebook says.

Y is awesome. Easy to play, 4 points, goes on the end of almost anything, not to mention YA and YE.

I find Upwords to be more of a challenge. Each tile is worth one point (except sometimes Qu), and the game was likely lame if my final score was below 300.

Advertising looks and chops a must

I have been trying to get a screen cap of that commercial where they are playing scrabble and use texting short hand. I so want to put "titsorgtfo" on the board.

Does he also give tips on how to break up an awesome band and ride that bands name out while making crappier and crappier music and somehow booking huge festivals based on the fact a lot of people will like him no matter what just because of his name?

'Cause I could use some of those tips.

For example, why does his new band name have to be Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks? Because if it was just The Jicks then people wouldn't know that Pavements old singer was in it and then no one would give a damn. I guess he has bills to pay though, so more power to him if people will pay money for a name.

I'll bet he's an awesome, tournament-level Scrabble player.

Hey, when does the follow-up to Face the Truth come out? That one pretty much sucked, so I'm betting the next one will be pretty good.

He DID want his new band to just be known as The Jicks. But Matador insisted on attaching his name to it.

Do a little research next time before you decide to get all indignant about something.
