Welcome back, and a happy Friday to you all. It's another chilly morning at Clutter Headquarters, and I was starting to think that summer was already over. I know we're heading into the final week or so of August, but I'm not ready for fall yet. However, it sounds like next week is supposed to be warmer, so that's something to look forward to. BDH and Little Buddha tell me that the coffee is ready, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's close out the week with some Clutter.
We've reached the point this season where a Red Sox win is either defined as "scoring more runs than the other team," or simply "not having a no-hitter thrown against them." They almost failed on that count last night, except for a Will Middlebrooks double in the seventh inning. That was the only hit opposing pitcher Matt Shoemaker gave up, as the Sox lost 2-o to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. It's a tough loss for Boston pitcher Rubby De La Rosa, who gave up the two runs over 6 2/3 innings. Things won't get any easier for the Red Sox batters tonight when Felix Hernandez and the Seattle Mariners come to town.
Boston outfielder Yoenis Cespedes was pulled in the third inning last night due to a "personal situation." We certainly hope everything is okay. If you click on the link, you'll see a clip of Cespedes nailing Josh Hamilton out at the plate with a strong throw. Go on, check it out.
And then there was one...just one day remains until Peter Capaldi begins his run on Doctor Who. Seriously, this feels like Christmas Eve. I'll do my best to pay attention to the world around me today, but it's really all about 8:00 tomorrow night.
Our best financial move last year was refinancing the mortgage on Clutter Headquarters at a fantastic rate. They've gone up a bit since then, but you can still get a pretty good deal if you're in the market right now.
Cheers to Guardians of the Galaxy star Chris Pratt for being a real hero to some children and their families at Children's Hospital Los Angeles on Wednesday. The actor hosted a special screening of his movie at the hospital and then spent time afterwards in costume making the patients' days brighter.
We were all set to include an article we saw last night about former Stone Temple Pilots/Velvet Revolver frontman Scott Weiland spending the last month in jail for meth possession, but it turns out that it's not him, so...never mind!
Singer/actor Henry Rollins revealed his utter ignorance about depression in a recent editorial shaming those who commit suicide. My first instinct is to be angry, but he hasn't got a clue what he's talking about, so my hope is that some day someone will explain to him that it's not about just having a bad day.
Shame on the Cincinnati Archdiose who objects to donations to the ALS Association.
Nashville star Hayden Panettiere used her ALS ice bucket challenge to announce that she's pregnant. My question is, who watches Nashville?

Okay kids, that's going to do it for now. I think we'll celebrate Scott Weiland not currently being in jail by having him and the rest of the Velvet Revolver crew close things out for us with today's, "Song of the Day."
Thanks for stopping by, everyone. It was great to see you, as always. Enjoy the rest of your day, and you're welcome to come back and hang out with us later if you like. Otherwise, be good, and we'll see you back here again for more fun soon. Until next time, that's today's Clutter, and we hope you won't fall to pieces, but we are outta here.
