Geekery Saturday – SDCC Edition

Lots of news happening this weekend, as the Geek world descends upon San Diego for Comic-Con. Let’s take a look at some of the highlights.

The rumor mill has been going in overdrive about the DC Movie Universe Batman, as Ben Affleck may be planning a Bat-Dance out of the role. He’s portrayed Bruce Wayne/Batman in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad, with a reprise already filmed in Justice League. The standalone film, titled THE BATMAN, may be in jeopardy, though. Affleck has already backed out of directing the film and new helmer Matt Reeves has said the studio is scrapping his script.

Over in the Marvel Netflix universe, Jeph Loeb announced yesterday that IRON FIST would get a second season on the streaming service. No date was announced for the new season, but the character will appear in The Defenders, which drops Aug. 18.

Here’s a new trailer for THE DEFENDERS:

After being published by Archie Comics for 25 years, comics starring SONIC THE HEDGEHOG will soon by published by IDW, after the property was abruptly dropped by Archie.

The CW released a video showing the comic book origins of its DCTV heroes, including the upcoming BLACK LIGHTNING, which debuts in the 2017-18 season.

Talk about this and anything else that happens today right here.

  • DC announces a SECOND Death and Return of Superman animated adaptation, this one set to be a 2-parter to be more faithful to the source material, unlike the FIRST animated movie they did, Superman: Doomsday, back in 2007.

    • ProjectBlue

      I haven’t kept up with ALL of their animated releases but the ones I’ve seen, I’ve enjoyed. It’s weird, every division but live action film does a better job with the source material than the live action team does

      • I’ve missed most of the animated movies released in the last year, because I didn’t care about the story – Batman, Batman, Batman can get old – and they aren’t really changing that in 2018. Batman: Gotham by Gaslight and a Suicide Squad movie aren’t likely to get me to shell out any money.

        But a two-part Death/Return of Superman movie, I’m all in on.

  • TatR!

    I could watch that Bat Dance video all day, what a hoot

  • RudoWakening

    “Why do you need a stool sample if you think I’m just a nut?”

    “Cos the answer’s not in your head, my dear. It’s in your butt!”

  • Last night, I read the latest issue of Mark Waid’s Archie comic, which has been building with this big storyline and… what a shitty story arc.

    http://thecasualgeekery.com/2017/07/21/subway-shorts-team-ups-and-mishaps/

    • TatR!

      RIP Bettys Legs

    • Dwayne

      I liked Marks past work. I might check his out.

    • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

      Waid’s recent work has not been as strong as his past work. I’m starting to wonder if he’s lost it.

  • Dwayne

    The Defenders trailer looks decent. My boy Daredevil being a part of it adds to my interest. It looks like Iron Fist actually does stuff in this series too.

    • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

      They released a real trailer? Awesome!

      • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

        Look at that…right above in the post…

      • Dwayne

        It’s right here in the thread intro

      • Damn it, Ken En Tai.

        • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

          I sometimes take the subway the wrong way. Really, I fault you for expecting more….

    • “I’m glad we found each other.”

      “I’m not hugging you.”

      It’s like they copied dialogue directly from me and Marv.

    • Marv

      Kind of planning on watching that at the bar instead of SumSla lol

  • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

    I really, really hope Punisher shows up in the Defenders.

    • Dwayne

      I could go for a Garth Ennis style series on Punisher.

      • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

        Yes!!! That would be perfect!!

  • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

    I bought a bunch of new Valiant tpbs yesterday…super excited to dig in!

  • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

    Squirrel Girl won an Eisner….boo!! The artist is very mean…. Like, just not the kind of person I like to see succeed. Ryan North is super cool, though.

  • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

    Love is Love won an Eisner??? A book where Batman walks among real victims and gives some bullshit monologue? God, I hate the Eisners…

  • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

    Superwomen: Gender, Power, and Representation won over the Wonder Woman book by Jill Lapole?

    The Eisner judges this year really sucked…

  • Marv

    Oh man I can’t wait for more Iron Fizzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

  • Marv

    My hotel is right next door to the SF Chronicle. I’m going to stalk the building this morning before my sister wakes up.

  • Marv

    Also this is in my hotel lobby. I am so annoyed I didn’t bring my Superman shirt… https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/36cf11c562c4859ce1d2a6ff8f3e28c1543f16e378d9ea0c21a605b8c5519a31.jpg

  • RudoWakening

    Jill Thompson’s Wonder Woman wins Best Graphic Album and Jill wins Best Painter

    • I doubt Kenny will be upset about this.

      • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

        The Eisners are always iffy every year, but this year was just like WTF?

    • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

      Those are both excellent choices!

  • Marv

    At Alcatraz they had these escape comics that I considered buying except they were possibly the cheapest designed books I’ve ever seen. Basically printer paper folded in half and stapled. It reminded me of the comics my friend and I made in junior high (featuring a guy with stretchy powers so his feet and hands were always out of frame because I couldn’t draw them lol)

  • Mikey

    Still haven’t finished Iron Fist.

    • I haven’t even started it

    • Marv

      It’s a long drawn out story that sacrificed action for a plot about which family member is going to take over a corporation.

      Sound familiar? lol

  • What’s Up Geeks?

  • Bat Dance should always be linked to the daily thread

    • Marv

      casualdancery.com

  • Forget to link my new replacement debit card to my Sony wallet and they tried to charge the old card for my PS Vue and when it didn’t go through, they just cancelled my service. No warning email to say, “hey, give us a new card number” like Hulu did. Nope, they just cancelled.

    Sony is a dick.

    • Marv

      That’s essentially how we pay our internet bill. We just wait until someone calls us the day before they shut it off and pay 2-3 months at a time lol

  • Finally watched Kong Skull island last night
    holy shit that movie is fun

    • Dwayne

      I always like when the monster kicks ass so that made it cool for me.

      • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

        That was fun, but too much boring people talking about boring stuff.

    • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

      I HATED that movie. It was way better than Baby Driver, though.

  • Marv

    Like any newspaper in 2017 there appear to be no signs of life here whatsoever https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/e12c45d9a526063dccdc1a7eba98bfcd506d16be3ba07ae1b7149b813830275e.jpg

    • more like…..the snooze paper OMG LOL ::high five::

      • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

        Nailed it.

    • Marv
      • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

        No one but old people and Luddites read physical newspapers anymore.

        But hey, Slate has an Impeach-o-meter and it’s currently set to a “low” probability of 50% for Trump being impeached, so it’s not like on-line news is filling the void.

        • Marv

          It’s a bit like watching your child starve to death.

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            For you, sure. I still have British news and that’s still worth a damn.

      • State of the country: people are cheap

        • Marv

          They don’t bother stocking the free papers either lol

    • It’s too early. Give it a few hours.

      • Marv

        It was dead all day yesterday too

        • There’s only so much activity a staff of 12-20 can show in a building that size

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            Can’t one guy run around outside yelling, “Extra! Extra! Read all about it!”

          • No one wants to give that guy hazard pay

          • ProjectBlue

            Home Alone it and mannequins dancing in front of the windows

  • Marv

    Ugh she’s awake. Have a most ex Saturday my boys

  • I suppose I should go to work. Stupid work

  • John Heard, the dad in Home Alone, died.

    • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

      Boo!

    • also I DON”T GET IT I DONT GET IT from Big

  • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

    What I don’t understand with movies like the new Godzilla or Kong Skull Island is why spend so much time on characters if you’re not going to develop them? I mean, I understand the entire movie can’t be the big monster fighting other big monsters due to cost, but why have boring characters who aren’t going to grow or change in any way?

    Power Rangers was fucking awesome because the characters actually had some stuff going on with them.

    • I didn’t find that with Skull Island. The only real character development was Jackson and I enjoyed they actually spent a few seconds developing why he was your generic military kill kill kill.

      I mean I guess the other one was Goodman but his whole thing kind of drove the plot and got them all in the trouble they were in.

      • I also can’t believe Power Rangers is a good movie

        • Also I’m through the first book.. it was ok. I can see them getting better if he gets better at these stories and does less hey look at all the Australian stuff I know!

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            Harry Hole leaves Austrailia and goes back to Norway in Book 3 and none of the Australian stuff is ever mentioned again other than a sentence in each book where it’s mentioned he once lived in Australia.

            The first two books are anomalies in the series.

        • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

          Power Rangers is GREAT. I loved it sooooooo much.

      • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

        You sound like you’re agreeing with me that none of the characters in Kong Skull Island have character development.

        Samuel L Jackson’s character – it was just exposition on backstory. Zzzz. Show, don’t tell.

        • but that wasn’t the point. they went hey..she’s anti war so like her.
          He’s a bad ass so like him
          Everyone else is fodder…lets get to the monkey fucking shit up!

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            Yeah, that’s super boring to me. It’s just wasting my time. I’d rather pay the same amount of money only to watch the 20 minutes of the monkey fucking shit up

          • I cared about Larson, Reily and Kong

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            I cared about Reily because he’s John C Miutherfucking Reily. Everyone else…it just wasted my time on boring stuff that went nowhere.

          • gas mask sword wielding Hiddleston went some where… to awesomeville

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            Heroes who are good at everything are the worst kind of heroes. The vulnerabilities are what make characters worthwhile.

          • lost in all this is I do agree godzilla was real bad. It had some promise and then they killed the person with all the character development and the movie died

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            Godzilla was a text book example of everything bad storytelling is. It literally broke every Pixar rule from back when Pixar cared about making good movies.

          • I’m seeing why we butt heads on stuff like this and Baby Driver

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            Yeah…I’m ALL about character development. If there’s no character development, I turn on it unless there’s some REALLY nice style.

          • Don’t get me wrong I love character development but… I also love things like giant monkey swinging a bat

            John Wick dog gets killed so he goes on murder rampage

            I enjoy variety. appetizers and dessert to go along with main courses like Citizen Kane or Godfather

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            The first John Wick movie had shit for character development, but had LOTS of world building. So, that was interesting.

            I also enjoy appetizers and dessert…I just like different appetizers and dessert. Like, I LOVE the Bad Boys movies because they’re just soooooo ridiculous and Belly because it’s so visually interesting.

            With Kong, just give me the monkey swinging a bat and don’t waste my time with characters who are just there to fill screen time.

          • Daniel O’Reilly

            Baby Driver is great. Skull Island is not.

          • Baby Driver is great.. and Skull Island was tots fun

          • Daniel O’Reilly

            It’s a lot of things happening to a lot of paper thin characters without any tension or thrills.

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            Do you mean Baby Driver or Kong? Because that description fits both equally….

        • Daniel O’Reilly

          Skull Island is awful.

  • ProjectBlue

    HBO Now’s customer service is amazing. Got jerked around by their twitter team. Passed off to their escalation team via email, who ignored me. I sent a follow up email asking when to expect an idea on getting Now to run on my 360. They said they’re working on it. They sent a followup email asking me to reply on how the process is going. They replied to that saying they’re still working on it and need more time. ….good thing I’m not actually paying for it because sheeeeeit

    • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

      The modern model is to not care about churn and only care about getting new accounts. It has a greater ROI.

      • ProjectBlue

        True, makes sense I guess because some will forget to cancel and wall street types are wowed by new subscribers.

        • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

          It’s also just cheaper to get new customers than worry about customers who are already paying.

          • Comdukakis

            Which is opposite what I learned back in the day at Hollywood video and blockbuster. We were always told how much more it cost to attract new customers than retaining one when they explained why we should bend over and take it with every bullshit lie we heard on late fees and lost movies

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            And both those companies are out of business…

          • Comdukakis

            that philosophy wasn’t why though. All the companies and business education also preached that it was more expensive to get a new customer than keep an existing one. Different times now I guess.

      • Daniel O’Reilly

        Though in the case of a certain wrestling company, it doesn’t look great to share holders.

        • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

          That same company has so many revenue streams, no one cares. Their stock sucks because the dividend is poor and no one takes wrestling seriously as a stock.

          • Daniel O’Reilly

            True, though with ratings in the dumpster and a smaller TV deal looming, it certainly doesn’t boost my confidence if I’m a shareholder.

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            The only shareholders of a wrestling company are wrestling marks anyway. No serious profile would have a wrestling stock.

          • ProjectBlue

            Wall St did a nifty little pump and dump a few years back around the time the last tv deal was negotiated. Slimy

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            Yep. Real sharks will always feast on marks.

    • ProjectBlue

      It loads on my other devices, just irks me that it won’t load on 360 and the 360’s in the room I want to watch thrones on. First world whinery but still

  • ProjectBlue

    …Noah’s on FX….Noah has giant rock(and or burned out tree) creatures doing his bidding…o h

    • Daniel O’Reilly

      Yeah. Aronofsky might have taken a few liberties.

      • No, The Bible just left those out. Totally happened.

      • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

        At least he still makes cool visuals.

  • can we all at least agree Skull Island was way better than Peter Jacksons travesty of the ass skating monkey?

    • ProjectBlue

      I did not like Jackson’s, though I never bothered with Lord of Rings so that might be the only Jackson flick I’ve ever seen

    • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

      They were both awful.

      • see I prefer a movie that doesn’t waste my time with terrible long character development. If I have to choose

        • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

          So Kong Skull Island?

    • Comdukakis

      My wife just bought that as we bought a new tv and a new dryer

      • I’d try it with the tv not the dryer

        • Comdukakis

          I’ll let her know

          • Comdukakis

            But actually dryer is being delivered next Saturday

  • I’ve been invited to a birthday feast at a place called Precious Metal in Brooklyn for my buddy Joe. The question is, do I really wanna go to Brooklyn after work today?

    • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

      No.

    • TatR!

      I’d like to go to Brooklyn this weekend but I can’t

      • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

        I would love to see you in Brooklyn this weekend. Ferrari can stay in Queens…

  • RudoWakening

    OPEN THE DOOR
    GET ON THE FLOOR
    EVERYBODY WALK THE DINOSAUR

    • how was dunkirk

      • RudoWakening

        Fucking incredible.

  • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

    A big monster movie I LOVE is Pacific Rim. Most of the time is focused on giant robots punching giant monsters in the mouth and when they’re not doing that, every character has some sort of development where they’re trying to overcome a vulnerability. It’s a really well done piece of screenwriting. Every coincidence goes against the heroes and every character has an established reason why they keep putting themselves in unhealthy situations.

    • ProjectBlue

      I enjoyed it but almost wanted more with the robots. They built up the foreign robots really well then they just dropped like nothing. The Japanese one with 3 guys looked like it was going to be awesome then they died within like 45 seconds of fighting. …that built up the alien threat but still

      • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

        I would have loved much more of that, too.

      • As much as I wanted to hate that movie because it was giant robots kung fu fighting, I sort of liked it, and I agree with this. Most of the robots went down way to easy.

    • See I thought the characters were so stereotypical and cookie cutter

      • not including the girl and Elba

      • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

        Extremely…but they all also had multiple vulnerabilities and their decisions were based on overcoming those vulnerabilities. I’m not saying it’s Infinite Jest with character development, but at least Pacific Rim characters had reasons for doing stuff rather than just wrong place, wrong time like most monster movies.

    • TatR!

      I wanted to like that movie because of Del Toro but it wasn’t my thing at all. Yeah it’s probably the best movie about giant robots but I don’t like movies about giant robots

  • Facts

    Think I will put on the Hatfields and McCoys mini series.

    • its good

      • Facts

        I havent watched it since it aired on the telly. I really liked it.

  • Marv

    Walking into the Castro, let’s get gaaaaaaaay

  • TatR!

    I’m not sure I’m going to finish Riverdale. I think it might just be a bit really bad.

    • I disagree with this assessment, but apparently you’re allowed in Brooklyn and I’m not.

      So… I don’t know. I think I may be ok with that.

      • TatR!

        I’m watching a storyline about the break up of the Pussycats and I’m thinking that this just isn’t important to me

      • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

        I was joking!

    • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

      It wasn’t my cup of tea, but I can see why people like it.

      • It just got more and more ridiculous (in a good way), and all the little references within the episodes were fun.

        • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

          Yeah, from what I watched, that’s what it seemed like. Plus, it was very melodramatic, but in a fun way. It just wasn’t for me, but it wasn’t bad.

  • I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT TO EAT FOR LUNCH!

  • Facts

    Also ordered Papa Johns for lunch to watch with my mini series.

  • TatR!

    Had my massage today. Think I was dehrydated already from last nights drinking, I’ve felt like crap ever since. Don’t think I’ll get any more. Last time I felt great during but a bit shitty afterwards as well.

  • Witcher 3.. when you go to a new map.. I’m assuimg you are able to travel back to the previous ones?

    • Facts

      Yes. Look for the green sign posts on the map to fast travel.

  • TatR!

    Mrs TatR finished Red Dead Redemption last night while I was out. She was pretty sad at the ending

    • Facts

      I love that game. Its in my Top 5.

      • TatR!

        We were both playing it together as a Fun Activity but then she got better at it than me and hogged the controller and then got annoyed at me when I took 5 attempts to do every mission so I bailed and let her do it

        • Facts

          Im a master at the quick draw.

          • TatR!

            I was basically terrible at everything, I’d struggle walking up stairs

          • Facts

            Oh dear

    • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

      I have the game, but I doubt I’ll ever play it. I’m enjoying video games less and less.

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      I beat it once a hundred years ago. I started replaying it a while back and can’t seem to advance past “Getting drunk and playing blackjack in Mexico”.

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    Boo.

  • Marv
    • Someone is trolling for British upvotes.

    • TatR!

      NICE

    • TatR!

      Are you gonna go in and just start crying?

      • Marv

        We’ll see in a few drinks!

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      You gonna complain about their soundtrack too?

  • DC has a Buy 1 Get 1 free sale over at Comixology. Thinking about getting Long Halloween digitally and trying to find something else I want that I don’t have.

    • Maybe some Justice League International…

      • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

        The Bwa Ha Ha era are the best superhero comics ever made.

        • I’ve managed to buy a whole bunch of old single issues of the JLI run, but having them collected digitally would be nice, too.

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      Does Vertigo count as DC? Could I get Transmetropolitan for cheap?

      • Doesn’t seem to be included.

      • Come on over tomorrow, you can borrow my trades.

        • Mr. Money On The Table

          That seems like a long bus ride. Thank God Greyhound buses now have WiFi.

          • You meet the most interesting people on the bus. And by interesting, I mean weird.

            And by weird, I mean “OH MY GOD, GET AWAY FROM ME! AND PULL UP YOUR PANTS! WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU?”

    • Facts

      Long Halloween is probably my favorite Batman comic

      • I have the Absolute Edition, the oversized reprints DC does, but those are hard to read on the subway.

  • Marv

    And as we’re sitting here we got to witness a bit of a hate crime! Some psycho homeless guy with tattoos all over his face threw a suitcase through the window!! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/9fdc54d289a2bd822c922f3f4c75ebbc9fa10101734a05b7cf26c4f295b26658.jpg

  • ProjectBlue

    https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DFWrYwnVwAAsU4O.jpg So everyone doing movie posters lately learned photoshop earlier this week?

    • Marv

      The concept is dope but wow, WOW, I think Peyton could do better lol

      • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

        The concept isn’t ever good…. At this point it feels more like, “Marvel has the Avengers, so we have to have one, too.”

        • Marv

          No I just mean the poster design, not the movie itself lol

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            Ooooh.

            The poster design is just a rip-off a Kingdom Come cover. Even the lighting is the same.

          • Marv

            They could do a lot worse than ripping off one of the best DC comics in history

      • ProjectBlue

        Even if they just go character pictures and no tagline. Or tagline on a black background, both makes it way too busy

        • The tag line, especially, is stupid.

          • ProjectBlue

            I can see them doing the tagline first then picking the lineup based on whose logos they could make sorta resemble a letter.

      • Maybe have Alex Ross just draw the damn thing…

    • Facts

      Oh why hello Gal Godot.

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      It’s like somebody saw the covers for Kingdom Come and said “Let’s make ours look like theirs”

      • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

        I had the exact same thought!!

      • Marv

        Yeah I think that’s why I like it

        • Mr. Money On The Table

          Likewise. If they stripped the tagline off I could see it as a shirt or the cover of the home release.

      • The Flash, especially, looks like something Alex Ross would draw, because every guy Ross draws has a pumped out chest.

    • Marv

      I wonder if they asked Lex for permission to use his logos

      • You know he has a corporate attorney looking into it. The sequel: Justice League on trial! For intellectual property theft!

    That Justice League poster is too busy.

    • I really hate that they’re promoting a Justice League movie and the only Superman to be seen is his emblem in Save

      • Marv

        I’m ok with as little Sadderman as possible

        • Sure, yeah, I’m not arguing that. Just an overall feel of ennui about promoting Justice League without Superman. It hurts.

  • Marv

    Woof gay bars are terrible this rum and coke has exactly a sprinkle of coke lol

    I’ll be drunk by noon

    This is Dr. Pyrnasus. He has given me advice from time to time. It’s kinda hit or miss. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/adcc24855f036de18cea6120154aedfdc6b34d8ad6ae05f27e8eb389ddfafbe9.jpg

      This nigga don’t play around with his staples. Only the finest.

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        Hahaha. Damn right!

    • Needs more staples and gold coins. As a tribute.

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        I haven’t bothered to ask for his advice since November. It was awful. He helped me in the same way Jake the Snake helped Ultimate Warrior against The Undertaker

        • Maybe he needs more gold coins first.

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            The gold coin appeared after that debacle. Plus he should be in debt to me. I saved hm from a three year old AND a trip to the garbage. My manager wanted to throw him away and I threatened a pox.

  • For some reason, I really dig the name Dr. Pyrnasus

      Luger wearing a collared shirt under a sweatshirt or does that sweatshirt also have a collar?

      • I’m guessing he’s wearing a collared shirt. Because he was a fuddy duddy,

        • Mr. Money On The Table

          He is indeed. Because he’s a savvy dresser.

        After this is absinthe! Weeeeeeeee

        • Mr. Money On The Table

          Doood! You got Absinthe!? Yeah, you gonna get something touched at some point. Either that or you may end up in a fight which is also like touching.

          • Marv

            It’s not nearly as fun as advertised, it’s just a liquor. I go to an Absinthe bar at home fairly regularly they make juleps that are the stuff of gods

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            I only had it once. Mixed it with poorly constructed screwdrivers. Ended up blacking out en route to a strip club, getting in a fight (i.e. I took a good clipper to the side of the head and across the jaw) and waking up covered in arm blood.

            I would try it again.

          • Marv

            Yeah that sounds like a good time to me lol

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            It’s a good war story for times like this.

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            I still carry the scars from the arm blood.

          • Marv

            I almost got into a fight at the ballgame with Bonzai it was awesome

            Mescal rules

          • Like, you vs. Bonzai or you and Bonzai vs. someone else?

          • Marv

            Me and the guy sitting in front of us. He told me I was being too loud so I leaned over to Bonzai and said “oh this man’s evening is ruined now for sure.”

            Then I went full me and at the end of the game he got up, grabbed my shirt and took a swing lmao

          • sigh

          • Marv

            As Bonzai said “wow you were heeling it up huge, you should have put your hand to your ear to listen to the boos”

      Their ballpark is so weird because it has apartments in it. Like walk out your back door and you’re inside PetCo it’s very odd

      • Mikey

        It’s strange for sure. I walked around it when I was there earlier in the year. I was going to do a tour but you can kinda see the whole park from the outside by their Hall of Fame

    • I’d go to hang around outside and see everyone in their outfits.

      Going in would make me fucking crazy.

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        I would go just to see it and see how long it would take before I bitch about the smells and the price of a rare action figure.

        • 4 minutes. Tops.

          Less if it’s not Day 1.

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            I can’t imagine the smell would be hideous but I do see myself bitching over a $35 Street Shark figure I don’t even want.

          • The vendors aren’t always that bad… at least not at NYCC… As the show goes on, everything gets marked down little by little, but I never found the prices to be THAT crazy.

            That’s a better idea

          • Maybe. I’m not convinced.

    Sony was going to take everything they had the rights to and make spider related movies (still might)
    Dc throw a bunch of characters against the wall and attached release dates without any idea how it was going to happen (most of which is back tracked now)

    • Momoa seems like such lazy casting… I know for a fact that a few years ago basically all the studios had a “we will take a meeting with anyone from GoT” Hence they got all kinds of projects… and that would be around the time he got cast.

      • ProjectBlue

        Eh, so far, he’s looked fun in everything about it so that’s a plus. Going to be weird if he ends up the biggest star of Thrones

  • Mikey

    Who would you cast as Batman is Affleck does indeed leave?

    • Marv

      Someone mentioned Jon Hamm, he’d be pretty damn awesome I think

      • Dear sweet God, you ARE drunk…

        • Marv

          Isn’t that the dudes name from Mad Men? He’d rock the Bruce side of it

          • Eh, seems a bit off to me. It might work, but I think it would just be a complete retread of Don Draper, just with some violence thrown in.

          • Marv

            Yes that’s what I think too. I want that lol

          • Only if they cast the guy who played Pete Campbell as the Joker. Just let Hamm wail away on him.

    • someone brought up Hamm.. and can’t argue with that.. Fassbender is my go to for anything so there is him.

      what about Elba. WB could be progressive with Blackman

    • Marv

      Joseph-Gordon Leavitt

    • Night

      I think they want someone younger. Fassbender would be a great choice. I know they’ve had a hankering for Gosling for a long time.

        Gosling can do very little wrong. That would be interesting.

        • Marv

          I don’t want to be attracted to Batman

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        He could play real life Lego Batman. He’s about the right size.

        • Mr. Money On The Table

          Or Bat Mite.

    • 10 years ago, it should’ve been Boreanaz.

      • Maybe more like 12 or 15… Jesus, I feel old…

      • Mikey

        Is that rumor true that he was going to play him before Bale?

        • He was in consideration for the FIRST Batman-Superman movie they were working on, before the scrapped it for Batman Begins, I believe.

          There was DEFINITE chatter about a Boreanaz Batman.

          • Mikey

            Agreed he would have been great for the role.

    • Joaquin Phoenix, he has a big jaw/chin and that’s the most important thing you need to be Batman.

      • Marv

        He can say that lip thing was a batarang accident like Spawn’s face

        • Mr. Money On The Table

          Now I want a montage of Bruce training with the batarangs. It must include one shot of Bruce dodging it as it comes back and one shot of a batarang hitting the tea off a platter Alfred’s bringing in or it just hitting Alfred.

    • ProjectBlue

      I’m usually never good at fantasy casting, but I hope they keep the idea of older, world weary batman for awhile. If anything, even age up on Affleck some more

          • Pirate talk is encouraged. Web links to torrent sites are still discouraged. Or will be, once I figure out why Adsense won’t load ads…

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            There are also more savages there with no regard to that shit. Snarling wrestling fans. We are the evolved.

    • Comdukakis

      the same as not allowing avatars of Lena Dunham playing topless ping pong. It is FROWNED upon

      • Oh, my man, THAT is a zero tolerance banning offense here.

        • Comdukakis

          I know. it’s ok. I have a bunch of crappy wrestler avatars I can use if I get bored with angry miz girl again

    • Marv

      Feel free to email me a link

      • NorDBSM Peterson

        Lol, Im pretty sure a simple Google check will suffice. Or just go to Youtube and look up Gal Gadot Gucci Bamboo, which sadly is not a euphemism

  • #ItsAboutTime Woman Darkseid

  • NorDBSM Peterson

    Coming is here like the six months between Cheers S5-6 where Sam was traveling, sold the bar to Rebecca, the bartenders had to wear unis, and no one knew Norm’s name. Its familiar yet unfamilar

  • NorDBSM Peterson

    Four innings come and gone in just an hour at Wrigley. Feels like a first-to-score-wins kind of game

    • Comdukakis

      I remember when most games got 4 innings done in an hour

  • NorDBSM Peterson

    Its weird my cat sleeps flat on his back. Only cat Ive seen do that.

    • I used to have a super fluffy orange cat named Scooby that would always sleep stretched out as far as possible, and flat on his back. He did it all the time. He was really, really friendly and everyone just loved him.

      He was hit by a car and died.

  • Alright, so who was in for the Not-SumSla meetup softball game? I think I can set up a Geekery/Bod vs. PTBN game…

    • RudoWakening

      Sadly, SumSla occurs on a two-day rather than a four-day weekend for me and I won’t be able to make it. I’m sad about this.

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      Ah, man
      We gotta do sports now?

      • You’d rather a Street Fighter tournament?

        • Mr. Money On The Table

          Eww! No.

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            I only watch folks play that. I have not the capable skills.

    • Marv

      Put a keg on third base and watch this motherfucker swing for the fences

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        Oh great, now I could potentially crash into a keg while rounding third!?

        • Marv

          The last time we played softball this is what we did and I slid into third on my face lmao

          I was purple and blue for two weeks

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            I am gonna try to leap frog it and clip my nards on the pump handle.

          • Marv

            LOL nards hahaha I haven’t heard that in forever that rules

      • How else do you play softball?

  • Oh, for fuck’s sake. From Newsarama:

    “Syfy’s upcoming Krypton is getting a big surprise twist as revealed at Comic-Con International: San Diego Saturday.

    Geoff Johns revealed that the live-action show ties directly into the present-daywith a “conspiracy” where villains go back in time in an attempt to prevent the creation of Superman. And a hero goes back into the past to stop them: Adam Strange.

    Other DC characters were promised, but Johns said that Krypton will not be connected to the DC Expanded Universe movies or other DC television series.”

    • haha

      • This is, “Oh wait, no one is actually going to care about this concept because none of the characters are established…”

    • NorDBSM Peterson

      Laaaaaaame

    • Marv

      Eww

  • NorDBSM Peterson

    5 innings in just 63 minutes. Are they double parked?

    • Matt_Indeed

      Still got me blocked for no reason?

      • Marv

        He does lol

        • Matt_Indeed

          I swear, what a little bitch. Lol

          • Marv

            I can’t lie I kind of enjoy it lol

          • Matt_Indeed

            It’s fine. I find it funny how a guy could have such thin skin. lol

          • You’re way too mean to people. You need to tone it down, Matt.

          • Matt_Indeed

            I’m super mean. Meanie, meanie, mean.

  • Matt_Indeed

    I just watched the first 2 episodes of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and it was pretty funny. I’ll probably watch more.

    • #ItGetsBetter

    • Comdukakis

      I watched the first season. I’ll eventually catch the rest. Pretty good stuff. I got through the first 2 or 3 Devito episodes.

    • Marv

      The first season is pretty bad, just stick with it

      It gets brilliant

      • Matt_Indeed

        I am sticking with it so far.

  • Matt_Indeed

    These people are terrible, but at least it’s funny.

    • Marv

      The concept of the show is basically: “How would four people that are definitely going to hell act?”

      • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

        Sunny? That show is hysterical.

  • NorDBSM Peterson

    And Adam Wainright breaks up Jon Lester’s perfecto after 5 2/3, lol

    • Matt_Indeed

      Ok.

  • “A fan dressed as Robin asked if the mystery of the 3 Jokers would be revealed soon. Tom King said “Maybe you’ve already gotten the answer and you didn’t recognize it,” prompting wide gasps.”

    “King then burst out laughing, saying he was just joking, and that the answer would be revealed soon.”

    What a dick. I love it.

    • better answer: “nope….next question”

    • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

      Tom King is incredible. I love that dude and his writing!

  • Matt_Indeed

    I drink the haterade, that’s me. Word up.

  • Matt_Indeed

    I’m hungry. See ya!

  • Image buy one, get one sale. May as well pick up a couple collections of Invincible. Can’t believe there are still 9 collections left, after I’ve already read up to volume 14

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      I saw that and walked away because my limited knowledge of the label left me responding to the offer with “Oooh! Spawn!” and I don’t want a bunch of Spawn.

      • Invincible has been pretty good, although the last collection I read left me a little cold on the characters. Not sure I wanna wade back in just yet.

    • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

      Image has a LOT of good books.

      • I have to focus on one at a time, otherwise I can’t afford it.

        • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

          I hear ya. I read trades and pick up quite a few. East of West is surprisingly great. I’m shocked how much I enjoy it.

          But really, there’s so much good at Image.

  • Marv

    Back at the hotel for a na*crashes into the bed*

  • Micheal Keaton should be old batman

    • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

      Always.

  • NorDBSM Peterson

    And Jon Lester blinks 1st, 1-0 Cards in the top of the 8th

  • Mikey

    What’s the best season of Sunny?

    • NorDBSM Peterson

      3 and 7 are my picks

  • Mikey

    Cat Grant to appear more frequently on season 3 of Supergirl.

    • Good! she was lacking from season 2

      • Mikey

        I guess she didn’t want to film in Vancouver which is why she wasn’t in season 2. I don’t think he’s going to be a regular but will be at least appear periodically during the season.

        • yeah I knew she didn’t want to go to canada but even a 3rd of the season would be better than like 3 episodes

    • So much for my theory that they were going to slowly phase CatCo out completely.

    • NorDBSM Peterson

      If youre Calista, no one’s batting down your door this day and age and people like you in that role, and theres worse places to shoot than Vancouver, so why not take a few months in Canada to do a solid gig?

  • NorDBSM Peterson

    Cards and Cubs went scoreless through 7, back to back two-out solo shots in the 8th off Lester, Cubs scratch out two two-out runs of their own in the 8th off Wainwright

    Fun game

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    Can’t wait to go home for beer.

  • Holy shit… if you keep talking about a wide-ranging bipartisan effort from both chambers of Congress, maybe you find a member of both parties to quote instead of three members of the same party? It’s fucking amateur hour today.

  • Marv

    My sister was getting very annoyed with me because I kept kind of moving her around as we meandered around the city. Like, as we’re walking if some weird homeless who was talking to himself was coming toward us I’d move her to this side of me or that side of me. She said she didn’t understand why I wanted her in a certain place for my own comfort/her safety. Apparently my brother-in-law never does this. This is a standard guy thing isn’t it? Or am I just paranoid?

    • Apparently, your brother-in-law is a dick.

      I know the feeling.

      • Marv

        I couldn’t believe she’d never seen this before. I do it to Edna constantly and she just kind of rolls with it

        • It is, I’ve been told, a more European thing.

          • Marv

            Weird. I’ve done it my whole life. I’d just rather be the first to take a punch/deal with weirdness

          • I do the same thing. I had a high school friend who did a lot of study abroad in Spain, France and Portugal who told me that it was a more European thing. She also basically trained me to do the move instinctively.

          • Marv

            Yeah I don’t even think about it really I just move Edna lol, I’ll just kind of grab her shoulder and be like “oooook you’re over here now, thanks”

    • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

      You’re doing old school gentleman etiquette there. NYC women HATE that, though…

    • If there’s someone who’s acting notably sketchy then I’ll do that, but if it’s just some dirty homeless guy I don’t really think about it.

  • Mikey

    Hoping to stay in, drink some beer, and watch some tv tonight. Started up Mad Men.

  • Defenders trailer: looks like a lot of fun
    JL trailer: Seems promising but we will see
    Ready Player One: dont remember that book being about car racing

    • Everything is made better when you add car racing.

      • That movie is living it’s life one digital mile at a time

      • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

        I wish they took that approach to Baby Driver!

        • so…so wrong kenny

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            I was just trying to get your goat this time.

    • Mikey

      I’m pumped for the Defenders. I still haven’t finished Iron Fist though so I kinda dread having to do that.

      • still haven’t watched Cage or Fist.. might start cage tonight

        • Mikey

          Luke Cage is kinda polarizing here, lol.

          • I thought Cage was fucking great. A little slow paced, but MUCH better than Jessica Jones. It’s my second favorite season behind S1 Daredevil.

          • loved Jones personally

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            I liked both!

          • Mikey

            I liked both. Iron Fist is the only one that I’ve run into problems with.

          • JJ would have been better if it had a secondary story to fill up a few extra episodes. The story wasn’t enough to fill 13.

          • I expect to like it we just never got around to it

      • Probably needed more car racing.

    • Good lord I dislike fast cars. Let’s just have normal speed cars.

    • RudoWakening

      It was about video games! And school

  • HOLY SHIT Stranger Things 2 Trailer up….. Thriller!

  • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

    I had an interview last week that was supposed to be a normal interview, but surprise! It was 2 hours of programming tests. (The volume of cylinders and defining abstract rectangles.) They e-mail me this morning telling me the next round is 3 hours of a surprise technology test. I told them either tell me what the test is going to be on or let’s just move on. They don’t need to give me 5 hours of surprise tests!

    • Jesus fucking Christ…

      • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

        Yeah. I also asked in the e-mail off they’re sure it’s a sales engineer job and not a straight software engineer. I don’t want to be a software engineer again…

        • So glad my jobs don’t require shit like that

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            The surprise tests are the worst because they’re hard and someone is watching you the entire time second guessing you.

          • Fucking torture. The worst thing I get is a copy editing/general knowledge test where I have to rewrite a sentence and write down the Supreme Court justices and the Seven Dwarfs. Which is harder than I think it should be… but still nowhere near that level.

    • Mikey

      That’s a crazy interview process.

    • What kind of jobs are you applying for that do this?

      • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

        Sales engineer.

        • What kind of company?

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            This is a fairly big software company. They told me this is the first time they’ve tried hiring a sales engineer.

          • Pretty intense. I deal with construction consultants all the time and there are definitely companies that don’t vet guys designing systems that could actually hurt people this thoroughly.

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            None of these companies make software that is life or death…they’re just overly picky.

    • RudoWakening

      You seem to have the worst luck with interviewing. Just come work on the road doing nukes with me, dude.

      • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

        That sounds WAY more fun…

        • RudoWakening

          And it pays well!

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    Oh lordy….there are so many rando Marvel books I want in this sale!!

  • Marv

    Now dinner with her work friends then I’m free to explore on my own

    *cough*pudtug

  • Marv

    My sister has some kind of fetish for mass transit. We’ll just use the muni and the Bart!

    Why? Why in a world with uber would anyone but the people going to work use a train or a bus?

    • I took the subway in New York recently because it’s convenient, massively cheaper, and I don’t mind transit in general as long as it’s working.

      • Marv

        Nah I’m far too fancy to ride in a cattle car with the commoners

        • Now that I’ve driven around a bit, I much prefer that to the subway

          • Marv

            I have nothing against mass transit really but like…it’s vacation. Let some Armenian guy cart us around

    • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

      I can’t imagine not using it now.

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    Alrighty. I think I am gonna snag Transmetropolitan, Deadpool: Dead Presidents, and Spider-Man: Torment.

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    Ooooh! Zero Hour! I always wanted to read that.

    • Marv

      I’m sorry

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        I found the concept interesting as a lad.

        • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

          It doesn’t hold up.

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            I sure as hell ain’t paying $13 to experience it.

    • It’s not a story, it’s a collection of vignettes for the first four issues that don’t work together. And the final issue ties everything up in the stupidest ways possible.

  • SOOO much to talk about with this trailer. I hate Warner Bros.

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    Sweet. Three collections for like $20. That ain’t not bad.

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    Cool. Now to enjoy some beer and grind it out in Marvel Heroes Omega so I can earn enough energy shards and buy my Punisher.

  • Facts

  • Nothing like wasting time during a meeting. HOLY SHIT PEOPLE! We can plan our birthday parties some other time!

    • Marv

      Who the fuck wants people from work at their birthday party anyway?!

      • People here seem to like each other. We’re discussing everyone’s astrological signs. I’m rolling my eyes at them all, proving that I am, in fact, a Scorpio.

        • Marv

          That is rather cold.

          See because

        • I love being a Scorpio. Any time that I’ve ever met a girl who’s into that stuff the immediate reaction is sort of a vaguely fearful attraction.

          We’re complicated people, Scorpios.

        • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

          I’m a Scorpio and I loooove people.

      • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

        I’ve never worked somewhere I would want to spend any time with my co-workers.

  • RudoWakening

    The White Sox are so bad they gave MIKE FUCKING PELFREY a job this season.

  • Marv

    This driver is Romanian I wonder if he fake’s a bosh

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    Damnit! I can get the Ultimate Alliance bundle for $24 on PS4. I kinda want it but I own the first one for PS3 and never touch it. Merrrrrrr.

  • It’s true of me in a lot of ways though that I’m very willing to spend money on things that I want to do, but I’m painfully cheap insofar as paying for convenience. Within reason, I’ll do it the longer, harder way almost every time to save a few bucks.

    • Marv

      My wife is like that and it drives me nuts. Convenience is the best. And usually it’s not much more expensive anyway. Combined our Bart trip would’ve been $16…this uber is costing us $20 and will get me there 20 minutes faster with no crowds or waiting for trains

      • That’s a really expensive train ride.

        • ProjectBlue

          It’s $50+ a person to get into NYC from my part of ct by train

          • How much for an oob?

            Like for me to come home from work in one is around 25 bucks on a normal day, or I can pay 2.75 for the subway. And it’s actually less because I’ve just got a monthly pass.

          • ProjectBlue

            I’m not actually sure for one person. Looked into it last Christmas and it came to like 450 for a group of 5 but not sure if that was because of the holiday or big group or what. Plus having a stranger drive is at least 90 minutes didn’t really float my boat

          • Yeah, $50 for a long distance train isn’t that much. I thought BART was like a local transit thing. And 8 bucks for a local thing is a lot.

    • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

      I’m the exact opposite. I rarely spend money on things I want to do, but if I do, I go full convenience.

  • RudoWakening

    I can’t find the cord to charge my iPad’s keyboard

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    Holy lord. The BoD is deader than dog shit.

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      Though it could just be that there’s a night thread I don’t know about

      • I just this minute realized that there’s a night thread.

        • Ginger Mahal

          I was wondering about you guys…..

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            Hey buddy. ๐Ÿ‘‹

    • Mikey

      Night thread went up a bit ago.

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        Yeah. Just figured it out. It didn’t pop up on the Disqus site.

  • RudoWakening

    The Comixology app will not allow me to make purchases

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      Buh!? You got an account and a working credit card?

      • RudoWakening

        Yep! All it’s allowing me to do is add shit to my wishlist.

        • Mr. Money On The Table

          Weird. You signed in and shit?

          • RudoWakening

            Sure am. My SmartList has all of my DC stuff

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            That’s weird.

          • Not really. Comixology eliminated in-app purchases a while ago, as a way to stop giving money to Apple. You have to buy through their website.

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            Eh, they still like Google money because it worked for me.

          • They probably have a better working relationship with Google.

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            I feel like they do.

    • You have to buy through the website.

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        For the sale shit? Because I just picked up Transmet with no issues.

        • Maybe it’s different on non-Apple tablets, because they completely eliminated that feature on the iPad.

      • RudoWakening

        Ah, understood.

  • Marv

    HOLY SHIT I FOUND A REXALL DRUG

    One of the triplets is fairly impulsive, tells me an hour before it starts there’s a concert he wants to go to. He’s been driving his brothers to work this summer and I still have residual “they grew up in a hell hole” guilt, so I’m out in the car in a sketchy part of Hartford for at least another hour. (He’s licensed but I’m still not comfortable with him driving distances on the highway at night)

    And, yes, I know you all want to know about THE WINDS OF WINTER too. I’ve seen some truly weird reports about WOW on the internet of late, by ‘journalists’ who make their stories up out of whole cloth. I don’t know which story is more absurd, the one that says the book is finished and I’ve been sitting on it for some nefarious reason, or the one that says I have no pages. Both ‘reports’ are equally false and equally moronic. I am still working on it, I am still months away (how many? good question), I still have good days and bad days, and that’s all I care to say. Whether WINDS or the first volume of FIRE AND BLOOD will be the first to hit the bookstores is hard to say at this juncture, but I do think you will have a Westeros book from me in 2018… and who knows, maybe two. A boy can dream..

    • He is losing his mental acuity. I think my idea of early onset dementia or Alzheimer’s may be close to the mark.

  • ProjectBlue

    As previously rumoured, Nick Fury will in fact co-star in this film, and he’ll also have two working eyes. Not because he gets his good eye back, but because the movie takes place before the first Iron Man. WAY before the first Iron Man, in the 1990s – and Carol’s going to fight THE SKRULLS

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      He ain’t never had a working eye!

  • ProjectBlue

    Ohhhh, Thor looks really good

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    Well, poopshits. I was gonna play video games but then I got distracted by Howard Stern.

  • Marv

    Actually pretty goddamn fascinating, her work friends’ boyfriend does Parkinson’s testing on mice this is interesting as hell

    • RudoWakening

      Are you just sitting there nodding along or have you now joined the conversation?

      • Marv

        Dude and my sister are talking work, I’m talking science with dude’s boyfriend

        As soon as he walked in with a NASA shirt I was happy lol

        • Mr. Money On The Table

          You do have quite the boner for space.

          • Marv

            The biggest!

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            Don’t know how but this lead to an image of your boner taking off into space. Like a bad Photoshop, your wang just broke off your body and ascended.

    • Best_in_the_World

      Lol is he watching you type that??

      • Marv

        Of course not

        We’re under the table right now lol

  • Devin Harris

    The mrs. had a girls night tonight. Guess who gets to hear all about it? Shoot me please

    • DAJackson7

      mine went to one…. invited me but I stayed on the couch

      • RudoWakening

        You made the right choice

        • DAJackson7

          Listen to chickens cluck or drink beer on the couch with the dogs? Easy decision

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    Huh. I don’t give a fuck at all about Thor but the trailer for the new one looks pretty cool. Plus it is pretty sweet that we have legit team-ups in movie form.

  • DAJackson7

    This chick in Lake County IL on LivePD is super hot….. isn’t @chicagodem from there?

    • RudoWakening

      That’s rich folk territory

      • DAJackson7

        The chick is an officer AND an attorney. Plus she’s a smokeshow

      • Really nice area.

        • RudoWakening

          It is. It’s got Great America!

  • Alright, Sunday thread is ready to go tomorrow morning. It’s exciting!

    Now if only I could go home and read more comics on the train.

  • Frank Miller and John Romita Jr. doing a 100-page graphic novel called SUPERMAN: YEAR ONE.

    I am almost positive this is gonna suck.

    • DAJackson7

      For all of Man of Steels faults it had a great Krypton backstory

    • RudoWakening

      No thanks. I’ll stick to Earth One

      • The arc JRJR did on Superman a couple years ago made my eyes bleed. Put him with “I’m crazy, but less irritating than Alan Moore” Frank Miller and… I’m going to have to pass.

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      Man. 20 years ago that would be an amazing combo.

    • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

      If Miller was drawing it, I’d be 100% all in. I still think it might be good. Miller still has it and JRJr is awesome.

  • Laurence Fishburne has been cast as Bill Foster in the Ant-Man sequel… So… No more Perry White?

    • Marv

      Shucks………….

      • Well that’s just rude. I’m leaving.

        • Marv

          His Perry White was full blown ass flu

          • Yeah, I don’t really care. It just coincided with me being done with work, 45 minutes after my shift ended.

          • Marv

            Well then gtfo

          • They made me fix something that wasn’t my fault. So, it’ll be 49 minutes after my shift ended.

  • Marv

    Alright they’re off to their botanical garden piano thingy and I’m alone walking around Golden Gate Park

    Let’s get into some trouble

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      Go find Scorpio…I don’t think Dirty Harry ever took him down.

      • Marv

        I’m walking in the direction of Haight-Ashbury

        Maybe I’ll get to play drugs!

        • Mr. Money On The Table

          Yeah but it’s with…..hippies.

          • Marv

            Best drugs! Yugest drugs!

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            But…..filthy fucking street urchin, drum circle, devil stix, hippies.

          • And good drugs.

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            Not worth it. I would get a buzz cut and cave their heads in ’68 style than drug with them.

          • That’s extreme

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            They’re filthy!

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    Oof. This beer has become a battle. I will finish it. I must. Then we can put beer to sleep and I can bust open my 24 pack of Cherry Coke. The nectar of the gods!

  • Marv

    For real for every city I’ve been in on this continent, and I’ve been in damn near all of them, this city gets me turned around the most. Finding north is tough

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      Just look up. North is always up.

    • DAJackson7

      Venice Italy is like that for me, but yeah San Francisco is bad

      • Marv

        The sun is setting and I’m pretty sure which direction that happens in lol

        Yet I’m still lost

      • RudoWakening

        Hard to navigate a sinking city

    • Basically every street in Toronto is on a north-south, east-west grid, even small residential streets. Exceptions are rare.

      It makes getting around really easy.

      • Marv

        Seattle is basically the same way, as this is basically an island everything kind of goes in a circle

  • Marv
    • DAJackson7

      Is it a dead end?

      • Marv

        Funny thing is it just loops around the park. You could drive on it forever and get nowhere…

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      I don’t much cotton for roads named after lady folk.

      • DAJackson7

        women don’t know street names anyway!!!

        • Mr. Money On The Table

          Nope. It’s just “the road with the rock by it near the Charming Charlie’s”

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    Damnit! I have new comics to read but I can’t get out of this jerk ass rabbit hole of British talk shows…

  • Marv

    Epicenter of an anti-capitalistic free movement in American history…now a Ben & Jerry’s lmao

    This is the corner of Haight and Ashbury https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/1d574d64ad4cec34209bbd2971653d675c493a38b4ed134b0a0339e321a3b2fd.jpg

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      I think they actually started in the Haight and Ashbury area.

      • RudoWakening

        Vermont

        • Mr. Money On The Table

          Fuck it. It’s close enough.

          +10 points.

          • RudoWakening

            I have toured the factory in Waterbury twice. You get a free sample at the end of whatever they’re making that day

  • Mikey

    Marv, my brother is in SF this weekend with his wife for their anniversary weekend. I guess they’re doing some evening tour of Alcatraz tonight.

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      I wonder if I could get out there and see the cell Piper spent a week in.

    • Marv

      That place must be creepy as hell at night. It was a little eerie at 11 in the morning on a cloudless day

      • Mikey

        It wouldn’t be my cup of tea. Based on his pics and your pics, that city looks outstanding though.

        • Marv

          It’s interesting but I’d certainly never want to live here. It’s as filthy as Baltimore but has the balls to act like it’s Boston

          • Mikey

            I remember when family friends moved to Baltimore and tried talking it up like it was the greatest city ever and had the nerve to
            badmouth Cleveland like they just moved to the Upper East Side. You can turn into PigPen from Peanuts by walking a block in Baltimore.

          • Marv

            I like Baltimore a lot. It has no delusions about what it is.

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    Bloody hell! My Cherry Coke isn’t all the way cold. All the way live? Yes. Cold? No.

  • RudoWakening

    Just got caught up correcting people on the Facebooks about nuclear power

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    Ugh. Damned cat needs to wipe better. I think the bastard has poo in his butt fur.

  • Marv

    Yeah this neighborhood is a huge bust. Every place is full of old white men selling hippie stuff made in china

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      I told you to stay out of there!

  • Marv

    Trolleys rolling by full of people with drinks in their hand. This is the kind of place I’d have loved at 25 but at 37 I’m like…maybe I just go back to that quiet Absinthe bar lol

  • Marv

    FAR more fascinating! My uber driver lived in the neighborhood in 68

    I’m basically doing a backseat interview lol

    • Marv

      Oh my god that guy was an old hippie that ran a printing press in San Jose for 20 years. That was the best uber ride I’ve ever had, fucking FASCINATING stuff. Seriously that was worth the whole trip

  • RudoWakening

    2-0 USA!

  • Much easier subway ride tonight. Still getting home an hour late because schedules be damned.

    • RudoWakening

      How long is the train ride from work usually?

      • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

        The game is in waiting for the train.

      • If it’s working right? 35-45 minutes. At night, waiting for a train can double that.

  • Marv

    i gave that guy a great review, sent him a compliment and stuff…but I can’t figure out to tip the shit out of him

    Argh I’m too dumb for apps

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      I thought there was a button you press when you’re like doing compliments and ratings and shit.

      • Marv

        It didn’t give me the option. Maybe you can’t tip in california?

        I want to give that guy like $20 for a $15 ride he was unbelievably awesome

        • Mr. Money On The Table

          That’s queer. We can in *checks i.d.*…. Minnesota.

          • They’re just bringing tips in here now. You still can’t yet I don’t think.

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            Yeah we can. I have skipped the feature several times.

          • I’ve never even reviewed a guy. I just found out that was part of it like 3 days ago.

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            I do usually when I go to get one and the last ride I got pops up and it’s like “rate this fella”. I just click a cluster of stars and move on.

        • You just started to have the option to tip Uber guys in NYC a couple days ago.

  • ProjectBlue

    @NYMag
    Did Japanโ€™s First Lady pretend to not speak English to avoid talking to Trump?

    ….won’t even read the article. Finding out it’s not true would be tough

    • Marv

      Yeah let’s just go with it lol

  • Marv

    My son has been throwing fits all day and my wife keeps video message me and I’m just like “lul that sucks for you eh?”

    • Marv

      She wants me to fly home first thing in the morning.

      Four days. She made it four days before going crazy. My being gone for two weeks next month is going to be veeeerrrrrrry interesting.

      • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

        We’ll Facetime you while we all meet in NYC and you’re back in Seattle.

        • Marv

          Honestly that may just happen.

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            I truly hope not.

          • Marv

            Same here, especially as I found out the gift I got for your pal Friendship arrived yesterday.

    • RudoWakening

      You dealt with Full Cunt while she was across the globe. It’s her goddamn turn!

      • Marv

        I tried really hard not to complain to her when she was gone because I wanted her to enjoy herself. She feels no such responsibility apparently lol

        • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

          That’s women for ya.

          • Marv

            I try to never fall into that kind of talk but…for real…

          • Marv

            Like holy hell lady get your shit together

  • Nothing like getting caught in a fucking torrential fucking downpour on my walk home from the train.

    If I die of pneumonia because of this… well, fuck. The site is paid for through the year. Have fun ya bastards.

    • Marv

      Oh so it was like any Tuesday where I live

      • I probably should throw an umbrella in my bag, just in case

        • Marv

          I carry one with me to every baseball game, rain or shine. I will never be caught outside in the rain again.

          • I’m so glad the AC is blasting in the bedroom as I walk in soaked to the bone.

            Fuck. I’m actually gonna die.

          • Marv

            Crawl into bed soaking wet. I know a guy that did that once when he came home drunk. Everyone was very pleased.

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            …..was this guy you?

          • Marv

            Hmmm?

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            *mock sign language* were you the drunk fella who crawled into bed soaking wet?

          • Marv

            Yes of course lol

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            It does fit your repertoire

  • Marv

    I passed a street called Belvedere about two hours ago and ever since it’s just been a loop in my head of “Streaks on the china, never mattered before….whooooo cares?”

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      And now I have a loop of Stewie loudly singing that part because Peter and Lois were talking over Mr. Belvedere and he was trying to drown them out.

      • Marv

        …oh, of course they did that on Family Guy because 1980s

        • Mr. Money On The Table

          Did I ruin it?

          • Marv

            Kind of lol

            God I hate that show

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            *does a victory lap around your coffee table*

          • Marv

            Stretchy pants! LOL
            Walkman! LOL
            Punky Brewster! LOL

            Who needs jokes when I can just mention things that we remember, it’s HILAAAAARIOUS

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            No one remembers Punky Brewster. They just remember the tits.

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            None of that is funny by the way. You just made me sad for a day and time I never really existed in.

          • Marv

            Exactly! None of it is funny. Welcome to every episode of Family Guy.

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            I can laugh at some of it. But I don’t care enough about the show to defend it. I just want to go back to the 80’s

  • Ha ha! You fool! You fell victim to one of the classic blunders – the most famous of which is “never get involved in a land war in Asia” – but only slightly less well-known is this: “Never go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line”! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!

    *falls over dead*

    • Marv

      I don’t care much for that movie but that scene is hilarious. That guy is funny as hell in everything he’s ever done.

  • Marv

    I can’t decide if I want to watch this Justice League trailer or ignore it.

    Half of what made Homecoming kind of shitty was that I’d seen every single thing in the movie beforehand

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      I would stay away.

  • Mikey

    Tonight was a good night. Just chilled, drank beer, and watched Mad Men.Last night was good too getting wasted with my best friend and drinking “90 minute” IPAs in 2 minutes.

    • Marv

      That sounds really fun. Sometimes just sitting at home and catching a buzz in your boxers is the fucking best.

      • Mikey

        It is sometimes. I prefer to go out if I’m going to get a buzz but sometimes your body knows it shouldn’t leave the couch.

        • Marv

          I go out fairly rarely now so those nights are always mental. My standard procedure is once the kid goes down at like 7:30-8 putting on my pajamas and sitting in my office with a few beers. I like it, it’s cheaper at least lol

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            I break random time records with how long it takes me to jammie up after work. It’s like I have them on under breakaway jeans

          • Marv

            Lots of days I’m still in PJs from when I woke up lol

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            Well, I work, sir…so I have to put on pants. Though I did the all day jammies thing for like seven straight years. It’s not the reason why but those were dark ass days and I don’t wish to return.

      • That has been my evening. I’m drinking a wicked high abv black IPA that tastes like a porter and I’m loving it.

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    Well now I am watching dentistry footage. I think this is where the night winds down.

    • That’s fucking weird even for you homie.

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        I know. I am watching some fucked up tooth with a cavity under the filling.

  • Marv

    Bleh I bought a flight, thus guaranteeing I will get exactly zero sleep tonight as I lay down mired in anxiety

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      Poor goon.

      • Marv

        If I hadn’t already broken and bought a pack of cigs I’d sure do so now I about want to vomit

        • I know phobias aren’t meant to be rational, but it’s still weird to me that someone who digs planes and space and shit wants no part of actually getting on one.

          • Marv

            Monkey brain does not care about engineering it only knows falling sucks

  • I’m back from stashing Mrs. C’s stuff at my parents’ house and I’m as ready as I’m gonna get for this week.

    Which means I also bought two big-ass bottles of coconut rum. Regular malt liquor drunk ain’t gonna cut it this week.

    • I’m drinking a super hip beer called Apocalypse MUCH Later that required an hour subway ride across the city and was only available for like 14 hours.

    • Marv

      Her parents are coming right?

      • YUP! Flying in from Baltimore tomorrow afternoon. They’ll be staying somewhere else, but still, they’ll be around. A lot.

        • They don’t know she’s a she? Is that what I’m understanding here?

        • Marv

          Good plan though, no reason to leave evidence that’s just asking for things to get fucked up

          • I like how my mom is super cool about shit to the point where she doesn’t ask what’s going on but just asks which closet I’m gonna stash the stuff in.

          • Marv

            That’s badass! So I assume your rents are all cool about it then? It would really suck if both sets of parents were pent up assholes

          • My mom knows and doesn’t care. My dad isn’t 100% on-board, but he’s in the “well, you’re happy and it’s not an abusive relationship or anything, so I’m just gonna not get in the way here” camp.

          • Marv

            Well yeah dads can be a bit strange on this stuff. I try to be liberal but I know I’d be like “ehhhhh…this is not exactly I hoped for but…” lol

          • Even if he was pissy about it, my mom would pull rank on him and tell him to suck that shit up and cope lol.

          • Marv

            Lol! Awesome.

            I still vote you guys make your way out here where no one gives a fuck.

          • Aside from her transition, the other thing we’d save up for is to get the fuuuuuck out of here. We ain’t here by choice.

          • Marv

            Depending on education levels and stuff she could probably get a job out here that would cover a lot of that

          • That’s all free here. You need to do a decent period of time of counselling though. Like a year or more. Doctors want to be really, really sure that you’re serious before they cut your penis off. But it’s free.

          • I assume that’s a rather new Canadian policy.

          • Depending on what province you’re in it’s been covered for a good while now, but, being a complicated and niche procedure, there aren’t many doctors that actually do it, and they do put you through a fair period of observation first. So it’s a lengthy time to get it signed off on, and then could be a long wait to actually have it done even after that.

    • Facts

      *looks around confused*

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    Alright. Enough fucked up teeth. Time to play drugs.

    • It’s 2am and I’m pretty buzzed but I haven’t smoked weed in a couple of days. If I do it will put me into the stratosphere. And then I’ll fall asleep.

  • Marv

    Ok I’m going to lay down and stare at the ceiling until 5 a.m.

    I apologize in advance for being super pissy tomorrow morning.

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      *grabs the war bonnet*

      I won’t be around but if I am, I’ll take you on. It will be fun. We’ll yell, we’ll scrap. Knock each others dicks in the dirt and you’ll block me for a spell.

      • Marv

        My plan is to watch Logan on the kindle and try very hard to forget that at any moment I might die lol

        Goodnight

        • Mr. Money On The Table

          Good move.

  • Facts

    Huh

    • Que?

      • Facts

        I read your post about stashing things and now Im confused

        • My girlfriend is a pre-op trans woman. Her parents, who do not know this and would be very much not cool with this are coming to visit this week, so I had to take all her female clothes and stash them at my parents’ house so her parents don’t see them and figure out that something is amiss.

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    It’s always a good hit when while holding it in you show the hand sign for a successful point after touchdown.

  • Marv

    This ceiling is fascinating…

    • My living room has an intricate hand plastered design in it. My crown mouldings are all hand plastered too.

      • Marv

        This is just a flat hotel ceiling I don’t know what any of that shit is lol

        • It’s old school. It’s hard to find guys that do it now, and they charge a fortune if you do find one.

          • Marv

            We’re waiting for tax reasons to have owned the house for a year then we’re moving back into an apartment. I hate having a house it’s all this work for nothing. I can’t wait to go back to it all being someone else’s problem lol

          • It is a lot of work and money. I like it. It’s something to do.

          • Marv

            I’ve got plenty to do already I don’t need a roof suddenly turning shitty or a pipe bursting. I miss living in the city something fierce too

          • I have all of those things deep inside the city. I don’t like surprise new furnaces that cost 12 grand, but some of the other stuff is neat.

            No I mean like a real city neighborhood, like living above restaurants and all that good stuff. We moved into my parents house because owning is something people are suooosed to do I guess but I just don’t understand the appeal. I get you like it though, but your stories all sound awful to me lol

            Like building a patio so you can…sit there I guess? I don’t get it haha, there’s lots of patios around someone else already built

          • I’m only like 15 minutes on foot from all manner of restaurants and bars. Literally anything.

            And then I’m 5 minutes from a splash pad, wading pool, playground, and library for the kids, and 1 minute from a huge park and trail system. It’s a good spot where I am.

            I get you though. I’m not into suburbia.

            Yeah we have all that very super close by too, well not a splash pad whatever that is lol

            I miss being *in* it though, not near it is all. And I don’t really understand how paying a mortgage is any different from rent really. They call it an investment but the only thing you can spend the money on is a different place to live anyway lol

          • Splash pad is just a bunch of water features for kids to run in and get sprayed by. The city has them all over.
