Monday Memories – Masterful

I like how movie releases from 1987 years ago line up nicely with Mondays 30 years later. It gives me a chance to reflect on one of my favorite bad movies from my childhood – Cannon Films’ Masters of the Universe!

Starring Dolph Lundgren as Eternia’s greatest hero, He-Man, the Masters of the Universe movie was one of Cannon’s hopes to turn the studio around, along with Superman IV.

While the wildly successful He-Man and the Masters of the Universe toy line spawned a cartoon that was popular amongst children of the 80s (much like myself), the movie was clearly not based on the cartoon. Instead, it was more closely align with the original concept behind the toy line – He-Man was closer to Conan the Barbarian than Shazam-like in his ability to switch between hero and his alter-ego Prince Adam.

In the movie, Skeletor has finally conquered Eternia, but in He-Man’s struggle to topple the evil dictator, he opens a portal to Earth, and humans get a hold of a cosmic key, which involved Earth in the giant battle. The movie was a casualty of Cannon’s financial difficulties, as the studio shut down production three days before the scheduled end.

While the movie probably isn’t what fans of the cartoon were expecting, the movie isn’t without its charms. Frank Langella as Skeletor was kind of amazing. According to an interview Langella gave, Skeletor was one of his favorite roles to play because of how much his son loved the property. We also have a young Courtney Cox playing the human female lead in surely what must be her proudest moment as an actor.

We never got a more faithful cinematic adaptation of He-Man, but lord knows it’s been adapted all over the place in comics, most recently in a crossover with another 80s property, Thundercats. You can read my review of the first issue of that miniseries RIGHT HERE.

Alright people, remember to yell out “I HAVE THE POWER” at least once today in the open thread.

  • If rainy days and Mondays always get you down, what about a rainy Monday?

    BAAAAH. Weekend went by way too fast.

  • RudoWakening

  • Brian_Bayless

    This weekend was spent moving stuff into storage and throwing away a bunch of old shit. I’m sore and tired.

    • Marv

      This weekend was spent in a hotel room sans child. I am also sore and tired.

  • The Professor

    This has been a weird summer for me.

    I binge watched a couple shows. I went out of town 4x (Vegas, mammoth, dc and Sacramento) for about 2 weeks total. However it still feels like I did not do much.

  • Ugh. I can’t believe I just did that. Some dipwad writing for Bleeding Cool talking about trolls on the Internet implied the First Amendment restricts Twitter from banning people due to freedom of speech and expression protections. I had to say something. I couldn’t help myself.

    I hate morons.

    • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

      The author of that article used to be a troll on Bleeding Cool! That was the most ironic part…he’s awful.

  • Marv

    I pick up my rental car in four days. Weeeeeee!

    And yeah probably some Masters of the Universe this afternoon.

  • Marv
  • DAJackson7

    An announcer hates Wrigley Field and will never do another game there….you only get one guess who the load mouthed curmudgeon is…
    https://www.yahoo.com/sports/white-sox-announcer-hawk-harrelson-really-hates-wrigley-field-202704536.html

    • Marv

      I would never go again unless someone paid me.

      But this guy is getting paid so…

    • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

      I think only Cubs fans have affinity for Wrigley Field.

  • Matt_InGeeked

    The water park we went to was neck-deep in kids and parents. And for some reason…a lot of old people. Really strange.

    • Marv

      I can’t do it. Those places skeeve me out way too bad with all the piss and what not.

    • ProjectBlue

      Grandparents and/or ones not wanting to get tackled by dude bros at a regular beach

      • Marv

        Maybe piss water has healing properties like a Lazarus Pit.

      • Matt_InGeeked

        All I know is, most of them weren’t with any kids.

        • Marv

          Always creepy.

          • Matt_InGeeked

            One of them got his towel bag caught in a locker, and had an employee pull it out and it dropped on the floor, and the old dude gave her the stink-eye like it was her fault he overpacked his shit. I FUCKING HATE ENTITLED OLD FUCKS.

          • Marv

            But remember, the generation now is spoiled and thinks they deserve the world.

          • Matt_InGeeked

            The hypocrisy of the statement is baffling.

          • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

            “I don’t want to leave my house even though I am no longer capable of maintaining it, so buy me a walk-in tub and stair chair so I can continue being a burden even after I’m dead!”

          • Marv

            “We’ve refused to even ponder the idea of alternative energy because while this is guaranteed to murder our children and grandchildren it really really works for us!”

          • Marv

            I don’t know why all these kids are whining on Twitter most of us walked around our segregated schools like ¯_(ツ)_/¯

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            I used to visit this job board and it was mostly Boomers who would whine because they sent out one resume and didn’t get called back. It was all “ageism” this and “Millenials are entitled” that. It was awful.

          • Marv

            The hilarity there is twofold, first that they mortgaged the American Dream and never looked back but also, who raised us?

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            Hahaha! Yes! The way they sold everything up the water and complain about how we’re upset about it is amazing.

    • Diddly

      Even weirder than the pet monkey I saw floating the river on Friday!

  • Marv

    Checking weather reports, oh good the week I’m in New York the northeast will be in the high 80s with a humidity in the low 70 percent. Why wouldn’t it be completely fucking miserable there for my second tour?

    • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

      That sounds like an improvement over how it’s been the past few weeks.

      • Marv

        I’ll walk everywhere with four cans of body spray and complimentary nose plugs for all the locals.

        • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

          Probably not a bad idea. The past few weeks have been the most challenging I’ve ever had weather wise.

          • Marv

            Ugh I don’t want to go anymore, let’s meet up for Survivor Series

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            I’m here whenever! You’re always invited!

          • Marv

            Sadly they’ve already charged me for my hotel room lol

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            Well, I guess you’re never leaving that air!

          • Marv

            For real though now I’m kind of thinking about things I can do that are all inside. I don’t want to go anywhere lol. I’ll probably uber EVERYWHERE and never get on the Subway because fuck sweating

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            I can drive you places.

          • Marv

            Driving/Cabs/Uber is definitely going to be the way to go. By that point in the trip I’ll be feeling like my backpack is stalking me

          • Brian_Bayless

            Sbarro has air conditioning.

  • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

    Frank Langella as Skeletor was the best part of that movie.

  • Diddly

    Hello from rainy weather!

    • Matt_InGeeked

      Overcast here too.

    • Marv

      I would love some rain it has been far too hot here for my delicate constitution.

    • Brian_Bayless
      • Matt_InGeeked

        You know Friendship looks pretty sad in that gif.

        It’s bumming me out.

        • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

          He’ll pick right back up again….soon!

    • There was a massive torrential storm here which took place entirely while I was doing food shopping.

      • Diddly

        I woke up to a downpour too, and apparently one of the two highways is closed due to the massive amount of wrecks. Good thing I’m working from home today

    • The Silver Fox

      Woken up at 5 am by a massive clap of thunder that shook the house. Been raining heavily ever since.

  • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

    I HAVE THE POWER!

  • Matt_InGeeked

    Breakfast: Fruit Salad (Bananas, Apples, Strawberries, Cantaloupe)

    • The Silver Fox

      Oatmeal with almonds and blueberries, toast with strawberry jam, orange juice and coffee.

      • Matt_InGeeked

        Nice.

    • The Professor

      rice krispies (treat)

      • Matt_InGeeked

        That….isn’t food.

        • Marv

          WHAT?!

    • RudoWakening

      That’s a good breakfast.

  • Matt_InGeeked

    Supernatural opinion so far:

    As long as you accept every terrible thing that the brothers run into is somehow a fucked up supernatural occurrence, and you don’t think too hard about how they draw their conclusions, it’s a fun breezy show that doesn’t make you work to enjoy it.

    • Mikey

      How many seasons have you watched?

      • Matt_InGeeked

        6 episodes. lol

  • Marv

    I wonder what rebellion will be like by the time my kid is old enough. Like forever it was varying degrees of going against social norms, growing your hair long in the 60s, banging young in the 70s, drugs in the 80s. Now rebellion is going the other way and catching adults being bad, like saying unapproved words and stuff, getting all mad on Twitter about it. Frankly I hope they go back to doing drugs or something.

    • ProjectBlue

      Straight edge future tattoos that show if you’re clean. Roaming groups of bandits beating the piss out of anyone high or drunk. Cat population gets out of hand, so two birds with one stone…actual bags of cats to do the beatings.

        *ponders if the second part is worth dealing with the first part*

      • RudoWakening

        There has already been a group of dudes that fuck up drunk/high/people smoking cigarettes, and they were called FSU

    • The Polish Hammer

      If my 12-year-old is any indication, it will involve a lot of eye rolling while staring at his/her/whatever-new-gender-is-invented smartphone.

      • Marv

        That’s like the first step into the Twitter thing though. I’m wondering what weird wacky thing is going to come after that.

    • The Professor

      doing fidget spinners

  • Diddly

    I swear that no longer watching wrestling is the greatest thing to ever have happened to my social life

    • Matt_InGeeked

      I haven’t even been to the BoD in 2 weeks.

      • Marv

        I popped in last night for the first time in a week and it was awesome because everyone was loving GoT. I’ve found the one hour a week where the place is positive about the show they’re watching haha

        • Matt_InGeeked

          I have no reason to go back. I don’t watch anything current, and I definitely don’t watch wrestling anymore, and you guys are all here, so there’s no point.

  • Marv

    The wife and I watched Sarah Silverman’s Netflix special last night. I was figuring I’d just doze through it but it was actually hysterically funny. She covered rape and abortion and stuff in a way that was a 1,000x more clever than most comedians.

    • RudoWakening

      Her newest one or Jesus is Magic?

      • Marv

        The new one, Sparkle of Dust or whatever. It’s great man.

    • Matt_InGeeked

      Silverman is great. Always has been.

    • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

      She’s hit or miss, but when she hits it’s incredible.

  • Matt_InGeeked

    The more I think about Baby Boomers, the more it pisses me off.

    • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

      Yes!! They are definitely the worst!

    • Marv

      I don’t any generation is so different from the other. I just hope I’m smart enough to get all pissed at my grandkids for doing stuff I did too.

      • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

        I dunno. The Boomers had a pretty unique circumstance and are the first generation to objectively ruin things for younger generations.

        • Brian_Bayless

          They sold out the country.

        • WorldWide Duck

          It’s happened before. The 1880s guys weren’t really helping the 1900s folk.

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            The 1900s were still objectively a better economy. No one has ruined an ecomony more than the Boomers.

          • WorldWide Duck

            I dont know. We were in a pretty fucked up place with Rockefeller before TR became president.

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            Very. Coolidge was the worst president we ever had. My point is more Gen X will be the last generation to do better than their parents. Millenials will be the first generation in our history to do worse than theirs.

          • Marv

            Yeah I’m sure its happened before. The old people of the time sure didn’t mind Vietnam much

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            They dragged the country out of a depression and fought back-to-back wars. They did their work.

          • Marv

            It doesn’t really matter what they did when they were young though, we’re talking about ruining shit for the next guys. That’s something a person can do no matter how many “great” things they did 30 years previous.

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            I can see that, but on the other hand it’s not like Vietnam was super popular. JFK was elected due to his optimistic message of the future and Vietnam was his mistake. And it’s not like LBJ was super popular with the old crowd….

            And the economy still improved for the next generation. The Boomers are literally the first generation to make it worse for the next group.

      • Marv

        This post is missing two very key words, home run Marv you overeager idiot

      • Matt_InGeeked

        That’s my problem with them. It’s like, “Let’s take advantage of everything, suck up all the resources, and then call everyone else a mooch.”

        They may not be the only generation to do it, but there’s far more of them than anyone else, so it’s pretty loud when they do.

    • The Professor

      The thing that pisses me off about them is many of them saying “buy a house; get married; have kids.”

      I am thinking fuck you. Houses are too expensive. Kids are too expensive and I don’t want them

      • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

        Yes! And a house plus a kid is only possible if you’re really lucky!

    • WorldWide Duck

      I feel the same way about Gen X.

      Like, hey dipshits, fixing stuff would have been a lot easier if you toolboxes had done ANYTHING useful instead of hiding and watching 80s cartoons like children.

      • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

        Oh, they suck, too, but they were just riding the Boomers’ coat tails.

  • WorldWide Duck

    I downloaded GTA: San Andreas to my PS4 this weekend. It is still fun.

    • Diddly

      ALL YOU HAD TO DO WAS FOLLOW THE DAMN TRAIN, CJ!

    • That’s the game that sparked my interest in photography.

    • Matt_InGeeked

      That is the most fun GTA to me, although I have never played V.

    • The Polish Hammer

      I played a little of Vice City because it was dirt cheap. Like two bucks. When it came time to start beating up hookers, I thought “This really isn’t as fun as people have made it out to be.” And that was pretty much it for my GTA experience.

  • The Polish Hammer

    My kid was particularly sullen the other day, ignoring me more than usual. My wife explained, “She’s on her period.”

    “Period?” I said. “Seems more like an exclamation point to me.”

    My kid turned beet red from a combination of embarrassment and stifling her laughter. Good times.

    @mattindeed:disqus Are you on a Jared Padalecki kick? He was on Gilmore girls and is a lead on supernatural.

    • Matt_InGeeked

      It would appear that way, but not really. I actually thought Dean was a dipshit, a boring character, and that Jared wasn’t a good actor….but he’s way better in Supernatural.

      • Mikey

        Agreed. It’s night and day. Also, growing his hair out was a good idea. He looked like such a shithead with his lame Gilmore Girls haircuts.

    Did anyone see the latest Norm MacDonald stand up on Netflix?

    • Marv

      Yeah it’s pretty lazy. One of the jokes is something I saw him do at least twice on Letterman five years ago.

      • Mikey

        I liked it towards the beginning and thought it tailed off. Was watching with someone last night and they didn’t like it either though.

        • Marv

          Yeah towards the end he just sputters. It definitely felt like Netflix came to him and he just took the check.

    • The Polish Hammer

      I watched about 5 minutes of it before concluding it sucked.

    • Mikey

      Why are you working so much?

      • Dayman Macklin

        Basically our big machine that we use to process the money broke so we have to use a much smaller and slower machine which takes about 4 times as long to run it.

    I”m working on 4 hours of sleep today because on Netflix last night, I watched 6 straight episodes of Oliver Stone’s Untold History of the United States…..fascinating shit.

    • Marv

      I watched the whole thing and just got angrier and angrier lol

      • chicagodem79

        LOL, yeah, I’m getting to the Reagan episode tonight, and I’m sure that will make me super angry. It was fascinating though, I had heard about many of the stories and “forgotten” moments of history before, but I learned a lot of new things too. I’m surprised I missed this, this thing came out in 2012.

        • Marv

          It’s definitely interesting in what he chooses to focus on, his conclusions are so fucking far out there though. Stone’s a dunderhead.

          • chicagodem79

            Very true. If you get past his point of view lol, then there are some interesting nuggets in there…even if you get past the odd leaps of faith he makes at times.

    • I haven’t watched any yet. Not sure I will.

  • Marv

    Who knew Bayless was such a gif whore btw

    • Matt_InGeeked

      He does do a lot of gifs.

      • Marv

        I like that he feels comfortable expressing himself here.

        • Matt_InGeeked

          He needs a place to relax and vent after reviewing that horrible shit 5 days a damn week.

          • Still can’t bring myself to watch the full shows. I skim through the hulu versions some weeks and I went through the last NXT episode because I wanted to see Asuka.

      That moment when he says fuck it and goes for it with the spear though is awesome. Someone was saying it last night but it’s really a testament to the writing that we can be like “Well shit, I don’t want Jaime to die…but I don’t want a dragon to die either…”

  • ProjectBlue

    Hm, Ryan Reynolds just posted Cable’s look for Deadpool 2 if anyone’s curious. If no objections, I’ll post it as a reply

  • I’m off Wed (my bday) – Fri this week. Whoo hoo!

    I have dr’s appt on Wed. Boo! It’s either that or take time off during a workday, and I don’t wanna do that.

    • Marv

      And Monday is lunch with meeeeee! It’s going to be a hell of a week for the Hoss.

      • A week from today?

        • Marv

          Yessir.

          • Hm. Well, I work here:

            https://goo.gl/maps/3Bo8K7b79Y92

            Should pick a place close. I don’t go out for lunch ever.

          • Marv

            How about this. You e-mail me the name of a place you’d be into going and Thad and I will meet you there.

          • Marv

            And then I can email you back saying it’s not good enough for me and pick my own place anyway. It will be such fun.

          • Seems reasonable. Any chance of it being dinner instead of lunch? Or a late lunch? Like maybe 330p?

          • Marv

            Nope I have to be in Champagne, IL by like 6pm. I’m hoping for as early as possible, like 11ish

    Boomer commercials are hilarious.

    “Remember that cheap nursing home you sent your parents to once they became a burden? FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, don’t let your kids do that to you! SENIOR INDEPENDENCE!”

    • Marv

      “Remember how you spent your life improving this home so you had something to leave your children? What if we told you we’ll pay you one third of that mortgage back over the next 10 years? And if you live longer than that, who cares? It’s your kids problem!”

    • Marv

      My question is: Why are people still sending faxes?

      • The Polish Hammer

        Because the Pony Express is no longer in operation.

      • Brian_Bayless

        Insurance companies and other facilities to review what I send them and for us to review who we take

  • Matt_InGeeked

    I wonder if Chris Pratt and Anna Faris’ break-up has to do with Pratt being all Jesus-y now and she couldn’t go along with it? I could see that.

    • WorldWide Duck

      Hasn’t he always been like that, but not as famous?

      • Marv

  • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

    Do married women with kids really obsess this much over toilet paper? My mom never bitched about it, she saw we were out and bought more, and I don’t remember a single conversation about it. On all these commercials, though, it’s all “OMG THE EXPENSE, WASTEFUL WADING, ETC”.

    • Marv

      Not my wife but our kid isn’t in that “flush a bunch of toilet paper” stage yet either, maybe it gets worse then? I never think about it. Toilet paper is like bars of soap it’s like “Oh I need one of these, shit I may as well buy thirty of them.”

      Your handsomeness is suspicious.

      Serial killer suspicious.

        Aww! That’s sweet!

    • RudoWakening

      Hello TatR!

      • TatR!

        Hello! I was listening to the first Lagwagon album earlier, I may hang out with their discography more

        • RudoWakening

          They’re a ton of fun. I think ‘Blaze’ is my favourite of theirs.

  • Matt_InGeeked

    So apparently Pratt was a Lutheran, and then became a non-denominational Christian during his son’s birth. And he’s “reaffirmed his faith”….which means, “Got extra Jesus-y”.

    • Marv

      Huh his son must not be that old yet

    • WorldWide Duck

      Lutheran is a fairly extreme “jesusy” denomination.

      • Matt_InGeeked

        Not if you aren’t devout.

        • WorldWide Duck

          Going non-denominational usually means lightening up.

          • Matt_InGeeked

            No it doesn’t. It usually means “I don’t want to call myself Pentecostal.”

    • RudoWakening

  • WorldWide Duck

    Q: What’s the difference between TaTr and Hitler?

    • WorldWide Duck

      A: Hitler probably wasn’t circumcised.

      • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

        ….

      • TatR!

        do you deny the holocaust like you deny my circumcision

    • Matt_InGeeked

      I don’t think TatR is much of a painter either.

      • TatR!

        fucking hell it’s pile on TatR day

        • Matt_InGeeked

          I love you, TatR.

          • TatR!

            At Least Hitler Could Paint. That’s what you said

          • Matt_InGeeked

            Well, here’s an upvote. Feel better?

          • TatR!

            I do!

          • Matt_InGeeked

            Good!

  • Mikey

    Weird that Pratt went from married to someone out of his league to maybe the opposite?

    • Marv

      This is the beauty of being a guy, our peak isn’t until like *checks calendar* exactly 37 years old. Women peak at like 24.

      • Mikey

        Nice! This sounds very scientific so I’ll buy it.

      • Diddly

        Women like older men and men like younger women so it works out!

        Unless you’re a fat woman, then God help you

      • TatR!

  • TatR!

    I don’t like dogs so that’s another reason Hitler was a nicer person than me

    • RudoWakening

      I have something in common with you and Hitler, TatR.

      • TatR!

        I think there may be more things Hitler about me than things that aren’t Hitler about me

    • WorldWide Duck

      I like dogs, but prefer cats.

      My cat plays fetch with me.

    • Matt_InGeeked

      Worse than Hitler!

    • Brian_Bayless

      I’m allergic to cats. Dogs are great though

      • Marv

        Same here I was perfectly designed by our lord and savior to be an enemy to all felines.

      • chicagodem79

        I got used to it over time. I remember when I first met my GF, the cats bothered me for like 2 weeks before I got acclimated to it. Dogs are so much friendlier though…

        • Marv

          I find if I’m just super duper aware of my hands and don’t ever put them near my face I can be in a cat house and it’s fine, I don’t get much more than a sniffly nose. Edna had a cat and we waited for it to die before we moved in together, I didn’t mind the cat, I’d pet it and stuff but the idea of having it in my own home? Oh my god if it ever touched my pillow and I laid down on it I would die I would actually die not a for funsie lol die a for real die

          • chicagodem79

            One of the cats likes to lay next to her, and often lays on my pillow when I’m not there, so I have no doubt I’m laying in his hair lol. Occasionally it bothers me a little bit, but I think I’m pretty lucky the cat hair doesn’t bother me much anymore. But I’ll never forget, I remember one time we were taking a walk, and we ran into a stray cat, so I pet it a couple of times. It was literally the worst allergy attack I had ever had in my life and it knocked me out for almost 2 weeks.

          • Marv

            My grandma was a cat lady basically, had like 15 of the fucking assholes all through my childhood. Going for visits over there was a special kind of hell because I didn’t figure out the hand-to-eye thing until I was like 20. I’d just be a mess, my mom would feel really bad and my dad would just be like “Oh walk it off I want to see my parents.” It’s like “Dad but the air is seriously is trying to kill. Every surface in this home is attacking my body” lol

          • chicagodem79

            Wow, would you have thought your body would’ve built up some immunity since you were around them?

          • Marv

            You’d think. Instead I’d just fucking die every Thanksgiving and Christmas. It was sooooo miserable.

    • RudoWakening

      Dogs are far too great for humans and we don’t deserve the joy and love the give us. Cats are sociopaths that plot our downfall and EXACTLY what we deserve

  • WorldWide Duck

    I imagine Hitler was better at correspondence than TaTr too.

    • Marv

      I’ve read through a ton of WWII documents and at no time have I run across Hitler making an embarrassing joke about spilling spaghetti.

  • WorldWide Duck

    Good part of cat ownership:

    It’s nice to have an animal come running to greet you at the door when you come home from work.

    Bad part of cat ownership:

    It chews on my shoes and I don’t know how to make it stop.

    • Marv

      I can’t abide the idea of an animal shitting in my house.

      • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

        Well, teach it to use the toilet.

        • WorldWide Duck

          That’s actually a thing.

        • Marv

          Cat owners always tell themselves “OH IT DOESN’T SMELL IT PEES IN A SPECIAL DIRT!”

          Go fuck yourself I can smell your cat piss from the other side of the front door lol

          • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

            Dog owners tell themselves that people love it when their “friendly dog” jumps all over visitors.

            Fuck you, we don’t, get your mutt off of me.

          • Marv

            Oh yeah for sure, good dogs are like kids in their chair in their third grade class, ALL FOUR ON THE FLOOR

          • The Professor

            100% agree

      • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

        But I’d rather change a cat box than constantly curb a dog or have to go on lawn patrol.

        • chicagodem79

          That’s the good thing, all their business is contained in a box…..the bad thing is that is smells HORRIFYING lol.

          • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

            Well, yeah. But depending on the size of the dog, poop scooping is no great joy, either.

    • TatR!

    • Marv

      I don’t think I’ve ever run into a dog I didn’t get along with pretty much immediately.

  • Marv

    I love dogs to like a sociopathic level, like I can deal with seeing 1,000,000 people murdered but one dog fucks me up.

    However a jumping dog is the worst and I will not hesitate to kick it across a room if it manages to do that uber-painful nut graze with its front paws

  • Brian_Bayless

    Your dog will love you more than any woman ever will, and it will never make you sit and wait while she tries on capri pants that she can’t pull off.

    • Marv

      It’s often the opposite experience of dealing with a woman, “I had a dream about you playing with another dog and you looked so happy and I love you even more now.”

    • Matt_InGeeked

      HAHA!

  • Brian_Bayless
  • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

    As someone who has owned both, cats are less trouble but probably less fun. Dogs are fine, but they’re a LOT of work and I’m lazy.

    Basically, dogs are smart toddlers and cats are surly teens.

  • chicagodem79

    Last night, the GF and I went to the pet store to get some crickets for our bearded dragon, and some cat litter. Of course, she never can go there just to get the specific things, so she bought a blanket where you can put catnip inside the blanket. Needless to say, occasional bouts of WWIII broke out as the 2 cats fought over laying on it.

  • Matt_InGeeked

    My dog is awesome. She’s a pit/boxer mix, and she lets my toddler do whatever she wants to her.

    Worked out again for lunch. Colin Kaepernick was the First Take topic and my workout partner went full MAGA on me. I tried ignoring him but he was determined to have this conversation. Someone please help me understand

    • RudoWakening

      Just kill him.

    • The Professor

      Let me guess the first take conversation
      “Colin should have the miami or baltimore job. Owners are racist. It’s horrible he is still unemployed.”

      • Devin Harris

        There isn’t any sound so I’m not sure what was actually being said.

    • Marv

      I would have a really hard time in those situations not just going completely the opposite way, “Yeah I think he deserves to get thrown out of the league. He wants to kneel and disrespect the flag over something hilarious like racism?”

      And then the guy is just staring at you like…oh dear what do I do now

      • Devin Harris

        I can’t understand a persons desire to say something stupid. I was intent to let it go until he said he should have just kept his mouth shut. I said he didn’t say anything. Then he talked about disrespecting the flag. At that point I knew it was a lost cause and went back to working out

        • Marv

          It’s not a conversation that go anywhere good lol

          • Devin Harris

            Yeah man. You cut it off once you remember he’s the one driving

        • TatR!

          Oh man if people bring up the flag yeah that’s it. You know you’re not dealing with a mind you can reason with.

    Please don’t post anything I would post.

  • The Professor

    Sigh.

    A University of Georgia professor has adopted a “stress reduction policy” that will allow students to select their own grades if they “feel unduly stressed” by the ones they earned.

    According to online course syllabi for two of Dr. Richard Watson’s fall business courses, he has introduced the policy because “emotional reactions to stressful situations can have profound consequences for all involved.”

    As such, if students feel “unduly stressed by a grade for any assessable material or the overall course,” they can “email the instructor indicating what grade [they] think is appropriate, and it will be so changed” with “no explanation” being required.

    “If in a group meeting, you feel stressed by your group’s dynamics, you should leave the meeting immediately and need offer no explanation to the group members,” the policy adds, saying such students can “discontinue all further group work” with their remaining grade being “based totally on non-group work.”

    Similarly, when it comes to “tests and exams” for Watson’s “Data Management” and “Energy Informatics” courses, all will be “open book and open notes” and “designed to assess low level mastery of the course material.”

    Finally, for in-class presentations, Watson will allow “only positive comments” to be made, while “comments designed to improve future presentations will be communicated by email.”

    Watson, notably, does concede that “while this policy might hinder the development of group skills and mastery of the class material,” those outcomes are ultimately a student’s “responsibility,” though he promises to “provide every opportunity for [students] to gain high level mastery.”

        So, the suitcase I took to New Zealand (and to Wisconsin when I came back for work) that I thought was Frida’s mom’s is actually not hers; it belongs to her friend. Well, said friend has been a total twat to Frida’s mom lately (just saying all kinds of mean stuff and generally treating her like crap), and Frida’s mom has stopped talking to her. Said friend now wants the suitcase back and claims that it is a family heirloom and has been hounding us for about two weeks now. I finally remembered to send it today.

        Forty-eight motherfucking dollars.

    So this past Friday when watching Live PD, I was talking about that insane car chase in Spokane, WA that went to Idaho. Turns out the guy they were chasing robbed one of the cast members of Deadliest Catch, in addition to assault and selling stolen firearms. No wonder they kept chasing him lol.

    • Marv

      What’s great is they’ll probably make that an episode of the fishing show too

    • DAJackson7

      That chase was crazy!

  • Marv

    How’s the first day going Tatr?

  • Facts

    One thing I love about my dog is that he has to know what everyone is doing at any given point.

    For instance I will be in the laundry room doing laundry and if he hears me while napping he will get up and go see what I am doing. He also will start barking in the bedroom if he still awake for me come to bed. It drives my wife crazy.

  • Matt_InGeeked

    I’m running around too much today.

  • Think I’m going to try and run the mini next year….. decided that while running today. did 7.. should be able to bump that to 12 by May. I’ve always wanted to do it.

    BTW it is a half marathon that kind of kicks off all the Indy 500 festivities and you finish with a lap around the track

  • Marv

    This place is playing that “We’ve come a long way” song. I used to think of my dad when I heard this and now I swear I think of stupid Paul Walker driving off to the left lol

    • Marv

      Thinking of Paul Walker is the way better option by the way, that scene is kind of hilarious

      • watching really dumb people try and be deep and heartfelt on a huge blockbuster movie is amazing

        • Marv

          I get them wanting to do something, I mean they had worked with the guy for 15 years and all that but man, that was corny. Like at the end they should’ve cgi’d him doing a fist pump and yelling “Go get ’em Groot!”

          • they should have just went all the way and he drives the car into the sky straight into heaven and Han & Gisele are there waiting to race him

          • Marv

            Like the end of Grease! Oh you’re my hero.

  • Brian_Bayless

    The guy came back and told us the reboot from Friday failed and he cannot fix it. Nothing a few doritos locos tacos can’t cure I suppose

    • Marv

      Wait. He tried a thing Friday and then they waited all weekend to see if it worked? This is amazing.

      • Brian_Bayless

        He swore he fixed it and it went haywire by Sunday

      • Brian_Bayless

        This guy is an idiot. He just rambled on and I said point blank to him “will this work now” and he said no then left as he has to order a new hard drive.

        • Marv

          This is the problem with being normal and working in mental health none of you derps really have the tools to make this guy’s life hell until it’s fixed lol

          • Marv

            Like my first thought is putting everyone on 30 minute shifts redialing his cell phone lol

          • Brian_Bayless

            There’s no taco bell around here so I expect him to not stick around long.

    • Matt_InGeeked

      You mean…so you can take a nice exploding beef shit?

      • Brian_Bayless

        For the guy, who last Friday talked about how much he loves working in a certain town because its next to a taco bell.

    CNN rolling a “Why Trump Won” but the commercial spins it in a positive light. You can guarantee Trump will be watching. I want a sci fi subliminal message Manchurian Candidate take on that

    • Matt_InGeeked

      Jeff Zucker is Donald Trump’s biggest fan.

    • Marv

      I think if the media did decide on a message for him it would absolutely work. Like Colbert’s but if they started
      Working toward that audience of one it might play, just make it up too, he’s that changeable! “And Trump today lauded the efforts of trans soldier Bertha McLoppo causing millions of people to chant his name in the privacy of their own homes.”

      Honestly if he saw that on CNN chances he goes pro-trans are, what, at least 50/50 right?

      • Matt_InGeeked

        In the end, sociopaths just want attention and for everyone to love them.

        • Matt_InGeeked

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        • Dayman Macklin

          That’s still the greatest story in BOD history. Much as I would rather swallow a cyanide capsule I have to give Marv credit for masterfully coaxing that story out of he who shall not be named.

            Though Dwayne says that was probably his way of not so subtly letting me know he’d be down to blow so maybe I’m taking too much credit.

          • Dayman Macklin

        • ProjectBlue

          True but it’s not like he’s a super method DDL style actor. It’s easy for me to say but for that much money, I’d do whatever the person with the checks want me to

      Let’s hope it’s more Skyfall and Casino Royale and less Spectre.

        Don’t care as in “we should all meet and see the movie together as good buddies anyway” or don’t care as in “I don’t care about this movie because there’s not enough friendship in the trailer”?

            Knock knock

          • Brian_Bayless

            Who is it?

          • TatR!

            TatR

          • Brian_Bayless

            TatR who?

        • Marv

          London I would imagine. We want to do all the parts of France we missed last time and that includes the tube

          • TatR!

            I mean really that’s like 3 hours from here so

          • Marv

            Eh it was a nice thought

          • TatR!

            I’ll be on the train for four and half hours on Friday to attend my brother in laws stag do. Four and a half hours! This country is small but should be smaller

          • The Silver Fox

            Could I interest you in Andorra or San Marino?

          • TatR!

            I would happily live in lovely little San Marino. They have a very good football team!

        • Marv

          Edna will be furious she hates that I have people I know in like every city, yay

          • Devin Harris

            it’s the greatest thing to come out of that blog

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            God, yes! I love it!

          • Marv

            It really is. “So anyway I’ve got friends from Atlanta coming for baseball next weekend.”
            “Friends from Atlanta when the fuck did you make friends from…oh right your stupid blog.”

            Sorry if I was smart enough to farm out some friends when everyone dipped on us after the kid lol myyyyy bad

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            And we’ll be your forever friends!

          • Devin Harris

            Mine is the same way. It’s been WHO ARE YOU MEETING IN NEW YORK?????? for like 10 straight weeks. It’s awesome.

          • Marv

            Last year she was 100% convinced I was getting murdered by either Thad or Ferrari

          • Devin Harris

            I didn’t tell her we were meeting you until we got off the train. She didn’t have much time for the “how do you know him” stuff until later.

          • Marv

            LOL

          • Devin Harris

            hahahahaha

          • Marv

            That’s so great. So just some corny white boy shows up and she’s like oh what? What’s happening? Oh that makes me so happy lol

          • Devin Harris

            She was so confused and it was so funny. Not only did you meet us there but got us nice seats. She was thoroughly confused as to why this was happening. So so funny

          • Marv

            LOL, “yeah some completely random guy is just going to meet us and throw us in the eighth row. Isn’t the west
            Coast crazy?!”

          • Marv

            To be fair I was not 100% I was not going to be murdered by Ferrari too

          • now you know what it’s like for me ever since I’ve come over here

          • Marv

            I’m not 100% sure this time either if I’m being honest

          • Brian_Bayless

            My wife thought I’d be killed too but she thinks we are all dorks.

          • RudoWakening

            Bayless you haven’t given your wife an old-timey name yet, have you?

          • Brian_Bayless

            Phyllis

          • TatR!

            more likely Ferrari

          • Blanche is more concerned of me killing myself trying to keep up than anything you will do

          • RudoWakening

            Frida wished me good luck

          • sadly I talk about you all to much for her to be that way

          • Devin Harris

            every time I get on the phone she’s like, “you’re on that thing again, aren’t you? You talk to them more than you talk to me”

          • We share too much and I am way to into telling her all the hilarious things I’ve said over the course of the day not to talk about this place to her

          • Devin Harris

            She hasn’t asked since everyone came over here but I’d show her something on the BoD and she’d be like “why is this funny? what does it mean? it’s not even funny”

          • RudoWakening

            “Don’t worry. There’s gonna be another black guy so it’s cool!”

          • Brian_Bayless
          • There’s a woman in that group. She’ll never buy it.

    • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

      Come to Brooklyn again sometime! Even if Marv’s not here, you can meet Ferrari, Dwayne, me, and possibly Friendship!

      • Marv

        Sounds pretty meh to me

        • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

          There will be Rusty Nails for all!

          • RudoWakening

            Except you

      • TatR!

        nah 3 beers in and i’ll just be like hey call your friend emily okay kenny just call her for me now

  • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

    I want to go on a cross country trip and meet everyone…

    • TatR!

      I’m in a different country!

      • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

        I thought it was assumed I’d come visit you!

        • TatR!

          Aww!

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            Seriously going to take a trip just to visit you and Ioan next year…

          • Marv

            Call him Loan the whole time and I will gladly pitch in a couple hundred for your flight

          • TatR!

            Ferrari should just ban Ioan from the BoD and then he’d have to come here

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            Obviously! I’ll also wear a Tiger Mask W mask and my Kenny Bullet Club shirt the entire time.

          • TatR!

            I should probably reconnect with Ioan. I haven’t been to the BoD in like two weeks

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            I truly miss him a lot. Everyone else less so. Wish Dwayne was here more. He might be upset I made him watch Justice at the music fest.

          • TatR!

            We’re missing a Biscuit and a Night. And a Shelton, but I guess he’s completely awol.

          • TatR!

            oh and redstorm, I’ll owe him a debt to my dying day for introducing me to Man Overboard, my most favouritest band ever

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            Red storm is GREAT! So is Abeyance…

          • Marv

            Eh.

          • TatR!

            No? These are people I enjoy. But things are okay as they are.

          • Marv

            I can live without Biscuit screeching about his politics all day. I like the guy he’s very funny but hot damn that shit gets old.

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            Just mention how the Browns suck or how great the Young Bucks are and he changes his tune really quick.

          • TatR!

            he’s very mad about Russia

          • Marv

            He’s mad about a lot of things. And I get it, I really do. He and I just aren’t personalities that mesh like at all. I’d be happy to see him here but I’m not sad he’s never posted once ether lol

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            Night would be great!

            Biscuit…I get to talk to him on the Elite.

            I’m assuming Shelton is gone for now.

          • And we need Bones because I need another SPORTZ guy over here.

          • TatR!

            Bones seems cool. He’s one of those guys who I just never speak to really though because we seem to have nothing in common.

          • RudoWakening

            We are definitely NOT missing a Biscuit

          • “No Days Jose” Gomez

            Now I’m hungry

          • Ian actually is a chunk of why I’m still on both.. like talking NJPW with him

    • Devin Harris

      so do I.

      • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

        Maybe we can take 2 weeks off at the same time and go on a crazy bro-trip.

        • Devin Harris

          I get the last two weeks off every year since I work for a school now. One of these years we can do it.

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            Hell yes!!

    • Marv

      This trip coming up is going to be the most absurd thing I’ve done in my whole life.

    • “No Days Jose” Gomez

      Let me know!

  • chicagodem79

    So, the girl who alledged Usher gave her an STD had a press conference today…

    https://youtu.be/tLkDpjQsUug

    Presented without comment

    • chicagodem79

      Great googly moogly, that’s a big ass picture, I apologize for that folks lol.

      • I feel you just made a comment about the video

      • TatR!

        even the smallest thumbnail of that girl would be a big ass picture

    • ProjectBlue

      Understandable. Why she would need a mountain for a bodygua….oh

    • Devin Harris

      Probably my cue to go home for the day. I might pop in later if I get the chance. You fellas have a wonderful afternoon

      • Marv

        Lol

    • I didn’t expect Vince Wilfork’s retirement presser to be on TMZ.

      • chicagodem79

        Legit LOL, I almost spit out my damn water.

  • So he’s in trouble for Usher-ing them he was clean?

    • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

      #NailedIt

  • TatR you are a Brit do you like Cask beers?

    • TatR!

      I much prefer real ale to like lager and stuff but I’m not a huge beer guy

      • ok. I just got hooked on them over there.

        • TatR!

          My *favourite* beer I got onto over there, Devils Backbone and Brooklyn Lager. I was so happy when they came over here

  • Facts

    “How do I know people all over?”

    I like to chit chat with similar people like myself while you are screaming at me to get up and do things.

  • Marv

    I expect Shelton to be here full time when he returns. I expect Biff to only come here once when he comes back.

    • Brian_Bayless

      lol

      • Marv

        I just know there will eventually be a jilted lover meltdown

        • TatR!

          We are very free of drama here. I wonder if it’ll last.

          • Marv

            The only for sure thing will be Biff. And Dougie eventually when he has enough of this current bit

          • chicagodem79

            I actually had a bit of an argument with him on the BoD today. The problem is, I’m a top notch no-seller of trolling or being a smart ass, so it doesn’t work on me lol.

          • Marv

            I like normal Dougie. I just wish he’d quit the whole “that’s not me” nonsense.

            Like we are clearly giving the guy a fifteenth chance here…

          • chicagodem79

            Totally agreed. I don’t mind the dude either, but it is kind of odd….oh well lol.

          • I plan to heel turn this fall.. get very political and combative

          • TatR!

            wait, you’ve been a face so far?

          • It’ll last for as long as I can help it. I do have Marv working against me on occasion, though. That makes it tougher…

        • There is so much that I hope just stays over at Scott’s site. I am very much in favor of both Biff and Shelton staying exclusive to the BoD.

    • Facts

      ……………..Did he tell you?

      • Marv

        Huh?

  • Marv

    There’s a DOTA2 championship happening down here right now. I don’t know what that is but I know I would let zero of these men near my kid.

    • Have said it before I don’t get it… I don’t want to sound old or judgmental..because i’ve liked plenty of stupid shit in my life but.. how there is THAT much money into playing and that many people willing to watch people play video games………do not get

      • Marv

        Seriously they took over the entire arena

  • FriendshipIsTheBest!

    I’m having spaghetti for dinner!!! This is going to be me later… https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/7dd59c15473b6f954c57570946469d641d32855791ed10b8fa88a9e1d77d47c4.gif

    • That’s a happy capy.

    • The Silver Fox

      Same here. Seemed an appropriate meal for a rainy day.

  • Marv

    Biff wishes he was an Iron Nail lol

  • Yesterday someone brought up Taco Bell needing a kids menu and I came up with Taco Nuggets
    I’ve thought about this
    so it would be like a pizza roll type nugget filled with ground beef (suppose we could to chicken and other tacos too) cheese salsa. Then once you deep fry them and take them out of the fryer.. that’s when you inject sour cream into them!

  • Marv
  • TatR!

    Goodnight crowd!

  • chicagodem79

    Harrelson is in the process of retiring. The 75-year-old announcer cut down on his workload last season, and is only working away games for the White Sox. The team hired Jason Benetti to take over home games from Harrelson in 2016. He is expected to succeed Harrelson as the full-time announcer when Harrelson hangs it up.

    That will happen soon. Harrelson is slated to work only 20 games in 2018 before calling it quits. He’ll work mostly home games, likely so the fans can give him a nice sendoff all year, and select special games.

    Fans who had Harrelson’s schedule mapped out on their white boards at home can probably mark it down that Harrelson won’t appear at Wrigley next season. We didn’t ask him if you can put that on the board, but we’re guessing he would say “yes.”

    I’m gonna kind of miss this lunatic lol.

    • Just working away games seems so weird to me. I would assume, when someone was cutting down their schedule, that they would just work home games.

      • chicagodem79

        Hawk lives in NW Indiana, which is a SUPER long commute to the Dumbass Field, so he figured it would be easier for him to just do road games.

        • I mean, ok… still doesn’t make sense to me, but whatever he wants to do, I guess.

          • chicagodem79

            Didn’t say it made any sense lol, that was just his reasoning. I get the commute from NW Indiana to the south side can be pretty awful in rush hour, but I’m not going to try and get into his head lol.

        • RudoWakening

          Just the dumbest goddamn bit of reasoning ever.

    • It’s gonna be like Verne Lundquist when everyone bitched about how badly they wanted him gone and how terrible he was at his job, and now this year, with no Verne on CBS, people are gonna realize how much they’d gotten used to him and his schtick.

      • who wants Verne gone? they are dumb

        • chicagodem79

          I mean, Verne is old and made mistakes, but he wasn’t incoherent or anything.

          • I don’t even know who’s replacing him this year, now that I think about it.

    • RudoWakening

      He’s the fucking worst but you know what? I’ll miss him when he’s gone. However, Benetti is EXCELLENT and has good rapport with Stoney.

  • Scrolled down thread and saw the GIF overload.

    Yeah. This isn’t gonna last much longer. Fair warning.

    • wait…..this isn’t Casual Gifery? I apologize whole heartedly

      • You’re dangerously close to having me make a declaration that Eli is my favorite Manning.

        • i have to ask about what you said earlier. Where you just giving me crap or were you actually referring to something when you brought up me “Are you stirring up shit again so people will agree publicly with your point of view?” because that didn’t sound like me to me.

          • Oh, as usual, I’m just giving you crap.

          • ok. I wasn’t angry or hurt or anything just like………..I can get accused of some things…….this…doesn’t seem like one of them

          • The Peyton-Ferrari faux feud is gonna be money, baby. MONEY!

          • wiffle is right though you should scroll down to my adorable dogs

          • Too many images make me want to turn the feature off.

          • yeah I can see that. We obviously all really like it and I think it is fun though we also will obviously over do it on occasion. Today probably had more to do the lack of our fearless leader most the day and we all cope in our own gif way

          • I’ve barely been around all weekend.

          • I also blame Bayless he started it.. that guy might be a covert operative sent to bring us down from the inside I”d keep an eye on him

          • Bayless seems like a completely different person here than over at the BoD. I feel like he’s shown more personality in the last two-three weeks than he has in the last 3-4 years that we’ve been interacting.

        • ProjectBlue

          Yay!

    • Scroll down a little further than that and see if all the adorable pet pictures don’t warm your heart.

      • If I’m looking on my phone and all I see are 15 straight comments of nothing but “Click to view,” it’s too much.

    • Marv

      I said it!

      • You know, when YOU say, “hmm, this is a bit much,” you’ve gotta wonder how far down everyone else has fallen.

        • Marv

          I’m just praying pics last through my trip after that I give no fucks.

          Though if they got turned off tomorrow I wouldn’t bitch either, I get it. I was on the phone all day today too and all it was was

      Very sad.

  • “No Days Jose” Gomez

    I can certainly picture meeting up with Marv, Kenny, Rudo, Bonzai and Ferrari for realsies.

    • It was a blast last time. I imagine this time will be fun, too, though I have a bunch of obligations keeping me out of most of the fun.

    • Matt_InGeeked

      No Matt, Jose. 🙁

  • Sweet they are making a Judge Dredd TV show and Karl Urban is in talks to return as Dredd

  • Member Game of Thrones?

  • The Professor

    just a thought on game of thrones:
    what if those dragon arrows have poison at the end and slowly kills a dragon

  • Marv

    Gawd that’s just the best

  • NYC trippers you guys should go should go to white plains to get Hulk’s autograph brutha

  • Marv

    Alright heading home, the boy is going to quilting, I am going to sip whiskey and watch He-Man

  • Was just told one of the guys on the desk was leaving at the end of the month to go work in PR and I jokingly said, “Yay! I won’t be low man on the totem pole anymore,” to which I received a response of, “Um… maybe…” Which means they’re not going to hire someone new. They’re just going to shift someone who’s been here longer than me to the desk and I will continue to get shat on regularly.

    I love my job so much… I think my wife may kill someone…

    • that sucks

      • Gets more and more ridiculous every time I walk in the door.

        • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

          Your job is seriously the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard. Far worse than AT&T and that was a 24/7 shit-show.

          • It’s an operation that used to have 200-300 people working together to put everything together cut down to less than half that, trying to still operate like it was 20 years ago. No one is willing to try and rethink the way we do things. They just want to complain that we’re understaffed. No shit, let’s make some changes so everything isn’t a battle every day.

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            That sounds about right for the stuff you describe. It sounds like a total losing battle.

          • It is. If they screw me again here – and they will, because that’s what they do – I’m just walking out. Because at that point its clear they can’t be bothered to give a shit.

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            Yes! Do it! Literally anything would be better!

          • Guess I never really payed enough attention. what do you do and who do you do it for?

          • I’m a layout editor on the news desk at the NY Daily News.

          • So it’s just like supergirl right?

          • so you work for #FakeNews that’s #Sad

          • Just… go back to the BoD…

          • awww I’m kidding man….bring it in for a hug

          • *tosses Peyton over a railing like Turk in Scrubs*

          • serious question. Do you think you could get better work at a smaller paper since you have such high credentials (news paper size wise)

          • Before I was here, I was the editor-in-chief of a weekly paper in Queens. The pay sucked. If I could find a job at a BETTER weekly that paid comparably, I’d do it in a heartbeat. I love local, community news. It’s more fun than doing a double-page spread on a story about Trump or whatever that’s essentially a rewrite of what a better-funded news organization did.

          • Marv

            Turn off the internet!

  • Marv

    Lest we ever feel too geeky, these people are watching people play DOTA in the adjoining baskebetball arena on this giant screen

    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/3268ecbc66e550a678c8ae7fd63cbc0ee7eadf96f78277e1d98912017ce1567e.jpg

    • They are NOT casual geeks. No sir.

    • …did they charge admission for these seats?

      • Marv

        There was some kind of entrance gate but I didn’t bother checking it out

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      I had a co-worker watching that shit last weekend at work. He tried to explain it to me so then I tried to explain the Final Deletion to him. We then felt mutually embarrassed.

    • Dwayne

      I never feel too geeky

      • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

        Because you’re actually cool.

  • The Silver Fox

    Coming up on the 40th anniversary of four of my favorite albums when I was a kid: Aja by Steely Dan, Talking Heads ’77, Saturday Night Fever soundtrack and Bat Out of Hell by Meat Loaf.

    • I love Bat Out of Hell.

      • Marv

        How the hell are they not touring, I’d go watch the shit out of Meat Loaf

        • I think Meat has health problems?

          • Marv

            Yeah I’ll just assume that’s true

          • Dwayne

            Shit, he was fat and old in the 90s

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            He was in the 70s, too.

          • Dwayne

            He was old in the 70s?

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            He always looked 50.

          • See, that’s what makes Meat Loaf so fantastic, he looks like the polar opposite of what you’d expect a rockstar to look like.

        • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

          He’s just one guy. Bat Out of Hell was just Meatloaf, Jim Steinham, and Todd Rundgren.

          • Yeah, but he tours with a full band. Is Ms. Loud still around?

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            I believe she is, but I’m not sure. Jim Steinham is still around and Todd Rundgren tours all the time. I would love to see him in concert.

        • The Silver Fox

          I think they’re doing a musical using Meat Loaf’s music.

        • he has done shows.. and has a history of passing out on stage

          • Marv

            That’s my kinda performer.

    • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

      I listen to Saturday Night Fever all the time. All four of those albums are great!!

  • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

    I say this as a compliment, but I always associate Rudo with Todd Rundgren as far as being so musically deep and just cool.

    • RudoWakening

      FUN FACT: I don’t particularly care for Rundgren

      • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

        Wha?? How??

        • RudoWakening

          Just does nothing for me outside of the ridiculous “Bang the Drum All Day.”

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            Wow. That is totally shocking to me.

  • The Silver Fox

    Prime Meat Loaf:

    • I used to love doing this at karaoke when I was single.

      • The Silver Fox

        I’ve done it too.

        • It’s so great when you can get a girl you’re flirting with to go up there and perform it with you. It’s a loooong song about how you wanna sleep with them.

    • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

      That’s one of the most incredible songs ever. Mostly written by Todd Rundgren. Steinham wrote the rest of the album. Rundgren produced it all and paid for all of it and still owns the masters.

    • I hope there is a couple out there that got prego before marriage that had this as their first dance at the wedding

      • Marv

        Thousands I’m sure.

  • RudoWakening

    I’ll never understand the love Steely Dan gets. It’s the lamest, most uncool AOR/MOR 70s dreck outside of Bread.

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      *tugs your beard*

      I won’t have nobody bad-mouth The Dan!

  • Dwayne

    Ahh… titties.

    • RudoWakening

      What about titties?

      • Dwayne

        I saw some nice ones just now

        • RudoWakening

          Outstanding.

        • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

          You’re having the best day.

  • The Silver Fox

    One of the reasons Steely Dan is among my favorite 70’s groups.

    • Marv

      Ahhhh that video starts with a scary rapist

    • Marv

      Gawd this song is just so good though

      • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

        I’m totally sure they’re going to be on the Guardians 3 soundtrack.

        • Marv

          Oh you.

  • I like that Montgomery is ass-backwards enough to have its own local version of Cops.

  • The Silver Fox

    First song you remember liking when you were a kid. For me, it’s “Black Water’ by The Doobie Brothers. 7 year old me loved the funky Dixieland a cappella section.

    • Marv

      Barbara Ann, I absolutely loved the Beach Boys growing up. Still do.

      • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

        Pet Sounds is literally perfect.

        • Marv

          God Only Knows was one of like four songs I requested at my reception, everything else was dancy shit Edna’s into but I was like “Fuck no we ARE dancing to something off Pet Sounds.”

        • Mr. Money On The Table

          If you put a record needle up to Bill Brasky’s nipple it will play that album.

    • Marv

      “They aren’t related but they Doobie brothers.”

      Woof a local jock would say that every time he’d lead into one of their songs lol

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        *on the phone*
        “Hello, is this The Doobie Brothers? Okay, which Doobie you be?”

      “Pop Music” by M-Pop or something like that.

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      Sledgehammer.

    • Comdukakis

      Elvira

      • The Silver Fox

        Still love listening to The Oak Ridge Boys.

        • Comdukakis

          I grew up on that stuff. Alabama, Statler Brothers, Oak Ridge boys, Ronnie Milsap, my parents listened exclusively to country radio when I was a kid so I know all that 79-85ish country

          • The Silver Fox

            I was very familiar with all those artists. Both because my mother loved country music and they also frequently crossed over to the top 40 radio that I listened to quite a bit during that time.

  • Marv

    This afternoons song as I get my drink ready:

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      Hell yeah!

      • Marv

        It’s so great.

    • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

      This is so much fun!

      • Marv

        Right?! I found it on a Heineken commercial years ago and I guess I got it on iTunes. I found it again today when I was putting random shit on the phone.

        • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

          i saw the movie it’s from once. Old Bollywood movies are insane.

  • Marv

    Jaan Peh Chan Ho!
    *toodlee-doo*

    *takes shot*

  • Comdukakis

    good evening all

    • Marv

      Heya man, how was your Monday

      • Comdukakis

        long drive. but not too bad

        • Marv

          Oh right your on your own this week right?

          • Comdukakis

            for a couple days. head back Wednesday night.

          • Marv

            That’s fun. Decent hotel?

          • Comdukakis

            not bad. comes with an iron, a coffee maker, a fridge, and you can sit down in the shower if you want

    • RudoWakening

  • RudoWakening

    Unity Concert. My all-time favourite Parks and Rec moment and be goddamn funniest thing on television this century. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/56dd0124bff7f0db9205ec11504b3ccf26d74f51e3d2e96d11bddfb2aa57786d.gif

    • Comdukakis

      while I did enjoy the final “future” season, the season finale of the previous season would have been a great ending

      • Marv

        I always stop watching when Rob Lowe and Anne Perkins take off.

        • Comdukakis

          yeah the big struggle was everybody was doing so many other projects. They left. the last Season Anzari was off for part of it, Pratt was busy sometimes,

          • Marv

            That Craig guy did a better job of killing a show for me than any character in the history of television. I can’t fucking stand him.

          • Comdukakis

            oh he was awful. They didn’t do much with him in the final season, than god. The only other character I can think of that joined a show I loved and drove me crazy was Gabe on The Office. They also pulled back on his screen time when everyone hated him

          • Marv

            I’ve never seen the final season, Craig just wrecked the whole show for me. I never went past season three on Community either. There’s so much stuff to watch there’s no reason to watch bad stuff.

          • Comdukakis

            I feel committed. Then again I really enjoyed the last season of parks and Rec. The Office seemed like a chore at times though post Michael Scott. Some good laughs here and there but certainly not great.

  • Watched the season 8 finale of Scrubs – the real finale, before they switched over to the new format of the show – and somehow got a ton of dust in my eye. The tears were everywhere.

    • Dwayne

      I never watched that show. I just know that I’ve been compared to the one dude as far as looks.

      • Comdukakis

        I’ve been meaning to watch Scrubs forever because it’s one of those shows everyone tells me I’d like. I fit the profile of a viewer apparently

        • My dad tells me it gets a feel for the inner workings of a hospital better than pretty much all medical dramas.

          • Marv

            Edna fucking loves that show.

          • Comdukakis

            hmm, my wife used to be a CNA, I’ll have to make her watch it. Stuff like Grey’s Anatomy drives her up the wall because it’s so unrealistic and they violate so many rules

      • Marv
    • Comdukakis

      I’m trying to think what season finales make me cry. Friends did the first time I watched it, but not anymore. That’s about it I think.

      • Scrubs is the only one I can think of that does it consistently. Man, that finale just gets me every time.

        • RudoWakening

          I love that during “The Book of Love,” as JD is walking out Lonnie gets in one final “I hate you, JD” to lighten things up just enough

          • They balanced the humor and emotion well in the final scene. Lonnie, the chick with the popcorn, too. It was a great up and down.

          • RudoWakening

            The one that got me the most was “You ever go on that picnic?”

          • “You should, it’s important.”

            I’ll always see her as Mrs. Landingham on The West Wing. Watching her fate on that show and on Scrubs kills me. She’s so great.

      • The Silver Fox

        The finale of MASH’s third season where they killed off Henry Blake is one for me.

    • RudoWakening

      I watched “Steak Night” the other day and made the mistake of cutting up sooooooo many onions during that one.

    • The Casual Wuss.

  • Comdukakis

    so apparently there is more “leaks” from the hackers on GOT. I warn you all, don’t spoil it for me!!! I will watch it sunday night in real time

    • Marv

      That stuff is so annoying. How about just have something else in your life for five whole days and wait until Sunday like the rest of us?

      I don’t think anyone around here would sperl it.

      • Comdukakis

        they might at that other place though.

        • Marv

          Oh the Loneliest Bruce Ever is watching it right now I’m sure.

          • Comdukakis

            not getting the reference. who are you referring to?

          • Marv

            Bruce Chung, the guy that watches live and comments every thirty seconds, then watches again and comments every thirty seconds, then watches it a third time and comments every thirty seconds. The entire Sunday night thread is him talking to himself it’s hilarious.

          • Comdukakis

            ahh the guy who has everyone blocked. Not me apparently, but most everyone else.

          • Comdukakis

            I’ve discussed the show with him before, but not sunday nights.

          • Marv

            In a land of sad boys he is by far the saddest. When he explained that his entire family came to DC for Christmas and purposely didn’t call him I could only laugh hysterically

          • Comdukakis

            that’s sad. But then again he says some awful stuff sometimes. But I never want anyone to be alone

          • Dwayne

            Some people want to be. I like being alone until I don’t.

          • Comdukakis

            me too. I’m certainly not the most sociable guy. I don’t go out with anyone really other than the family, but I still have a relationship with my in laws and my parents and brother back in Sacramento

          • Marv

            He’s told everyone person there that announced a pregnancy that they should get it aborted. Fuck that guy I hope he eats his fat ass to death.

          • I’m a bit unclear about your feelings for him. Care to elaborate?

          • And this is part of why I said nothing about my wife being pregnant…

          • Marv

            Yeah you made the right call there. It also left Dougie without six months of being a real piece of shit.

          • Comdukakis

            he was almost….tranquil

          • The first comment and I would have gone on a banning spree.

          • I’m assuming your child came out…

            …in…

            …a…

            …Corvette.

          • RudoWakening

            He fucking told Nick Demola that he wouldn’t have to worry about being a bad father or something like that since he was gonna die of cancer soon

          • Marv

            Such a piece of shit. He deserves to be alone.

            Oh yeah that was the other delicious candy, he went to Las Vegas alone hahahha

          • Comdukakis

            oh I remember. I liked Nick too. Fellow Sacramento guy.

          • RudoWakening

            I haven’t seen him in a while. I hope he’s doing okay.

          • RudoWakening

            He hasn’t blocked me either

          • Willis?

      • RudoWakening

        Table would.

        • Marv

          I don’t think he even watches the show.

        • Mr. Money On The Table

          No I wouldn’t. Not with what actually happens.

          • Comdukakis

            no screwing us with us either!!!

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            Oh I doubt you would take my spoiler of “In this episode Arli$$ returns” seriously.

    • ProjectBlue

      It’s weird they’re hanging their hats on the scripts though. Outline’s been out on reddit for months now. Plus, for that show anyway, HBO doesn’t seem that worried about spoilers in general so it’s not like they’re going to get paid for it.

  • RudoWakening
  • Dwayne

    Heard GoT has a lot of tits.

    • Marv

      Yep!

    • Comdukakis

      not recently. Actresses have got too big to have to do nudity anymore. Plus the gratuitous brothel scenes are long gone

      • Marv

        We saw titties two episodes ago!

      • Dwayne

        No need for me to start now then.

        • Marv

          There were some nice black tits two episodes ago I don’t know what he’s talking aboot

          • Comdukakis

            yeah one scene. but in three episodes that’s it. fuckers called a cadaver “brief nudity” Fuck you HBO!!!

          • RudoWakening

            Missandei. Goddamn.

          • Marv

            I kinda didn’t realize how goddamn hot she was until she got naked lol

          • RudoWakening

            Right?! She’s a goddamn smoke show

          • The anti-Charlotte.

    • The Professor

      It had old guy nudity in episode 1

  • Comdukakis

    Don Baylor died today. One of my first favorite players

  • Comdukakis

    apparently I’m taking a vacation in November. Not sure where. I was just told by the wife to get a week off

    • Marv

      -or-

      You’re putting a new roof on the house lol

      • I vote for the new roof.

        • I’m getting one of those.

          • The Silver Fox

            Next year for our house.

          • Happy happy joy joy.

          • The Silver Fox

            At least I’m not doing it this time.

          • Oh, no way I do it. I have no business doing such a thing.

          • The Silver Fox

            Once was enough for me, even with the help of two brother in laws. This time we’re paying for a professional to do the job, like we did with our kitchen last year.

        • Comdukakis

          we are actually talking about moving. We could use a single story house because the stairs are tough on her and on my knees.

      • Comdukakis

        ah hell no. I draw the line at anything more than hooking up electronics, moving furniture or simple yard work. that’s the extent of my “man around the house” skills

    • Dwayne

      We are going to the Dominican Republic for our anniversary in Oct

      • Marv

        We were meant to do an Alaskan cruise for our anniversary (which I will be in Atlanta for, watching the Mariners lol) in September but dumb bell didn’t get the tickets in time.

        • Next year is a west coast trip and maybe a jaunt down to the house in Mexico for a few days.

        • RudoWakening

          We may hit Portland for ours in December

          • Marv

            I figure we’ll probably just go hit the same hotel we honeymooned at. By the time I get back I’m going to be pretty ok with not traveling the rest of the year lol

      • Comdukakis

        nice. We are talking either going to WM in new Orleans or hitting Florida again for Disney/Universal

      • RudoWakening

        Make sure to pay Sammy Sosa a visit.

        • Comdukakis

          he doesn’t look like he use to.

          • Marv

            Lol

          • Comdukakis

            who knew Sosa would turn into Michael jackson

      • The Silver Fox

        Our trip to Iceland was our anniversary trip.

        • Comdukakis

          did you see Bjork?

          • The Silver Fox

            Sadly no.

          • Comdukakis

            sheesh, the only have like 50 people there. You think you would have seen her

          • RudoWakening

            Bummer.

          • The Silver Fox

            Lots of volcanoes and other geothermal features though.

          • Comdukakis

            ice?

          • The Silver Fox

            Some. Greenland has far more.

    • Tranquilo Baby Tranquilo

      Have you seen the white cliffs of dover?

  • Time was I refused to use a computer for writing lyrics, and didn’t need anything to help me remember musical ideas. Now I have a fucking spreadsheet with song names and thoughts about where I wanna go or what i need to do. Still use a notebook for sketching out chord progressions though.

    • Comdukakis

      technology can be your friend, while being the enemy of humanity overall

      • Pretty much. I can remember wanting to mix down from an analog 4 track to my computer back in 1994. Didn’t work out very well. To the best of my knowledge, there was no multitracking software at the time; at least not within a reasonable price range.

    • RudoWakening

      Do you use sheet music for writing at all or does it go right into the computer?

      • I use a spiral noebook to jot down chord progressions. This time around, I’m then recording scratch tracks to find melodies on most of the songs.

  • I just sneezed and it resonated in my guitar. makes sense, but it was still weird.

  • Comdukakis

    there is a threatening placard in the hotel room that threatens a $150 cleaning fee if I smoke

    • Speaking of which, I watched Roadhouse the other night, and I was struck by how often Swayze had a smoke. It was just about every scene where he wasn’t fighting.

    • Marv

      That’s what cool vaping is for.

      • Comdukakis

        I don’t smoke, I just don’t care for the tone

        • Marv

          No one smokes anymore bro, they vape!

          • Comdukakis

            my wife still smokes. She didn’t care for E-cigs. She only smokes like a pack a week. just when she drives.

          • Marv

            My rental car comes with a $350 charge if I smoke in it.

            So…my rental car is going to cost an extra $350 lol

          • You could try not using the ash try and spraying the fuck out of it with Febreze.

          • Marv

            I won’t use an ash tray, I doubt it even has one. And I’ll try spraying but I won’t be surprised if they catch me.

          • Worth a shot. Maybe Febreze at the end of each day.

          • After each cigarette.

        • I suggest you burn said placard.

  • The Professor

    I HAVE THE POWER

  • Comdukakis

    Tigers with five innings of utter futility at the plate

  • Comdukakis

    might be time for an episode of classic SNL

    • Marv

      I don’t know what to watch. I’m just sitting here drinking whiskey and staring at the wall.

      • Comdukakis

        this tiger game is boring me. They can’t buy a hit of a journeyman pitcher.

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        When I do that I start to get fighty.

        • Marv

          Apparently that happens when I drink mescal.

          • Comdukakis

            that happens when I see the patriots win

  • The Professor

    One good thing about newest season of red hot American summer. Short 8 episodes and done

    • Marv

      Hopefully it will get tons of views and Netflix can stop this nonsense with stretching everything to 13 episodes

      • Comdukakis

        I don’t think GLOW was 13 episodes

        • Marv

          Oh really? Hopefully that does well too then. I never made it past the first episode.

          • Comdukakis

            it was ok. Nothing spectacular and if you didn’t have a background of watching GLOW not sure what you get out of it

        • The Professor

          It was 10.
          Defenders is 8
          Stranger things is 8

          • Marv

            Defenders is only eight?! Sweeeeeet

          • Dayman Macklin

            It’s officially a Miniseries so yeah I’m excited for only 8 episodes. Should lead to something more focused and “different”

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    Alright. I am home, full pizza and beer. Let’s watch some crap!

    • Comdukakis

      Raw?

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        Nah. Kinda close though. I am digging through the new Hidden Gems crap.

        • Comdukakis

          only thing I’ve seen out of that is the Backlund showing kids how to wrestle stuff. It’s pretty bad.

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            Oh, yeah. That’s dumb as fuck. I am watching match #568,987 of Abby/Brody’s best of infinity series, after that I am gonna watch Scott Hall’s one ECW match then the Bulldogs/Rock and Roll Express match. Then it’s video game time.

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    I love me a good bloodbath.

  • RudoWakening

    I’m tired.

    • Marv

      That’s crazy you’ve only had four pots of coffee today.

      • RudoWakening

        It was only one today!

      • Dwayne

        That’s why

  • Tranquilo Baby Tranquilo

    What’s in the new hidden gems?

    • RudoWakening

      Gems that need to be found.

      • Tranquilo Baby Tranquilo

        I’ll get my spade.

        • Dwayne

          What’s his name?

          • Tranquilo Baby Tranquilo

            I don’t name my gardening tools.

          • Marv

            Now that is some stellar god damn improv

          • Dwayne

            That’s how I feel about my hoes

          • RudoWakening

            **riotous applause**

      • Don’t think you’d use a spade for gems. A pickaxe, maybe.

    • Marv

      I am unaware of that…comic?

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        No. Run. It’s pro graps.

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    Weird. The Express/Bulldogs match has crappy AWA commentary dubbed over better Japanese commentary.

  • Tranquilo Baby Tranquilo

    Do most people name their gardening tools?

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      Yes.

    • Dwayne

      Only if you care

      • Tranquilo Baby Tranquilo

        I want to care.

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    ✊👈.

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      *giggles like an idiot*

  • Tranquilo Baby Tranquilo

    Ultron. We would have words with thee.

  • Marv

    I should get my fingernails done before I meet Hoss.

      • Marv

        He was really worked up when I was talking about getting them done for wedding pictures. It would upset him I think.

        • I approve this plan.

        • Dayman Macklin

          I don’t think you want to upset a man of Hoss’ temperament, size, and proclivity to discuss acts of violence.

          • Marv

            I have a chaperone coming to protect me.

        • Make it better, let him know you’re gonna be late BECAUSE of your nail appointment.

          • Marv

            I can’t be late I have Champagne that night!

    • The Silver Fox

      Never had a manicure, but I have had pedicures regularly in recent years.

      • Marv

        I’ve only done it once, for the wedding because we did those goofy pictures of our hands and the rings and crap. I don’t know, they looked nice!

  • American Ninja Warriors is like a less fun American Gladiators.

    • Marv

      That’s exactly what it is.

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      It’s like a less fun Takeshi’s Castle

    • Dayman Macklin

      I loved American Gladiators and MXC. Ninja Warriors is less gimmicky and more serious so thus less fun.

  • Dayman Macklin

    5 days until Liverpool kicks off, 11 days until the Defenders. Good times ahead!

    • 13 days until Marv kills Mikey with alcohol poisoning.

      • Dayman Macklin

        Come on Mikey show em who the man is.

        • Meanwhile, Dwayne just drinks his beer while silently judging everyone for being 100 times more drunk than he lets on being.

          • Dayman Macklin

            This is a very complex ecosystem that’s been nurtured.

          • It flows pretty naturally.

    • Curtis Williams

      5 days until Liverpool misses Champions League……AGAIN!

  • Marv

    The only episode of Ninja Warrior I really cared about was the time one of those gymnast Hamm brothers from the Olympics did it

    • Dayman Macklin

      Zack Gowen was on an episode and I watched. He did pretty well.

      • Marv

        …that kind of makes the entire obstacle course less cool to me. If he could do it the obstacles just must not be that hard

        • Dayman Macklin

          Oh, he didn’t finish. I just meant he did well for a one legged man.

  • Matt_InGeeked

    The kid is in bed, damn it!

    • Matt_InGeeked

      Woooooooo

    • Marv

      Jeez, she’s up late

      • Matt_InGeeked

        She goes to bed at 9.

        • Marv

          Wow really? That sounds horrible lol

          Shitbird is down at 7:30 so we can have at least an hour of life

          • Matt_InGeeked

            We usually go to bed at 10:30-11:00, so we get about 2 hours to watch TV/possible horsein’

          • Marv

            That makes more sense. Edna’s out by 9 and we’re all up by like 5:30 at the latest.

          • Matt_InGeeked

            Ah, yeah, only I get up early, and it’s not until 6:30.

          • Marv

            Some bullshit about how she wants to see him before she leaves for work or whatever, I don’t get it. Flee while you can.

          • Matt_InGeeked

            That would be love. Lol

          • Marv

            Oooooooooooh

        • Mine too. Nine to 9:30.

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    Well, one of those bouts was fun.

  • Matt_InGeeked

    I watched a couple seasons of Ninja Warrior, but it’s pretty much the same thing over and over.

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    Ooooh. New YouTube goodies.

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    Blackheads are weird.

    • Marv
      • Mr. Money On The Table

        It’s like a sheep!

        • Marv

          It’s kind of my favorite pic of Obama ever.

          • Matt_InGeeked

            I miss him. I hope he’s having fun watching the world implode.

          • The Professor

            Illinois just made his birthday a state holiday

          • Matt_InGeeked

            Seems right.

          • Marv

            He sure seems to be, he deserves it. I watched his last Press Correspondents’ Dinner the other day and he was just like “Wow…look what you guys did, good work!”

      • Marv

        Seriously the subtext in this picture is just unfuckingbelievable, so intense

  • Matt_InGeeked

    Time to watch some Netflix, bitch.

  • RudoWakening

    Sasuke > American Ninja Warrior

  • I spent 8 hours making ribs and wings today. And then I ate them. And they were good.

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    One pint down, onto the next…

    • I was drinking Dale’s Pale Ale today. It’s an American beer. I never had it before. It was ok. Not great.

      • RudoWakening

        I used to drink Dale’s quite a bit in my drinkin’ days

        • It’s new here. It was fine, I’d definitely drink it again if there wasn’t anything really interesting available.

  • Marv

    Four shots and a beer in, it’s that time

    https://m.popkey.co/af8626/w6N9k_s-200×150.gif

  • Marv

    So clearly the solution is Dinosaur Ninja Warrior

  • Marv

    I’m still smoking some of those pre-rolls from that picture last weekend. They’re terrible. They have the worst runs.

    • Marv

      Protip: Full grammers suck, go for the half grams they burn more betters

  • Marv

    Dinosaurs really don’t look very agile when they’re doing tricks. That shit seems like hard work, there’s no flow

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    I am going to stare death in the face for a while. *Stares at Pat Robertson*

    • Marv

      We used to think he’d be the worst possible president.

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        This old fuck blinks every 90 seconds. It’s creepy.

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    Christ….the broad from the 700 Club is disintegrating before my eyes too..

  • Marv

    I have this thing I tell Edna all the time about how I’m always going to tell the boy “If there is someone out there doing it, you can do it. You can literally do anything, pick something and go.”

    Oddly I want to use this dinosaur idiot as an example the next time I go through this monologue with her. Like hey look at this, this bumbling fucking idiot wanted to do ninja shit in a dinosaur costume…so he did.

  • Matt_InGeeked

    I hate the way TV Shows start an episode with a couple minutes of the end of the episode, just enough to not say anything. It’s because the episode ran short so they need to stretch it out and pass it off like they’re being creative, but it’s the complete opposite.

    • Marv

      That gimmick is especially weird now that almost everything is binged anyway

      • Matt_InGeeked

        Yep!

        • Marv

          For awhile there Netflix thought it was being awesome by skipping the opening credits for the next ep, then they realized we were missing pieces of the show from before the credits so they had to change it all up. When I did my Friends watch a few years (YEARS! lol) ago at work I kept missing the opening 90 seconds of each episode because it would just skip to the end of the credits lol

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    I watch a lot of god tv for some reason.

  • The Boy is telling jokes now. At dinner he fired this off:

    Boy: Knock knock Daddy
    Me: Who’s there?
    Boy: The Chicken
    Me: The Chicken who?
    Boy: He crossed the road!

    We’re working on jokes.

    • Marv

      It’s as good as 90% of the jokes I hear from adults I’d say he’s way ahead of the curve.

  • Marv

    It would be hilarious if like two days from now Mister_E_Boy told like the funniest rape joke or something, just like the most absurdly awful thing for a kid to say. It’s like a rape joke that also manages to be offensive to gays and black people too lol

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      It’s the impossible dream.

      • Marv

        That post really is projection I just wanna hear my kid say cunt or something it would make me so happy I’d puke

        • RudoWakening

          This is something you need to work on when Edna is at work. Then blame it on tv.

          • ProjectBlue

            HBO buying out sesame street was bound to have repercussions

          • Marv

            The TV would be my fault too though. He’ll just say it some day. And that day I won’t be able to cuss in the house anymore, but it will be worth it. I hope.

        • Mr. Money On The Table

          Cap it off by following it up with a drunken Dr. Gonzo “Damn right!”

        • He’s said fuck before. He dropped something near the top of the stairs and it rolled down and he stomped his foot and said “fuck!” before he went to get it.

          • Marv

            *sniffs* That’s a beautiful story man

          • A friend’s daughter came up to him still in diapers and tugged on his shirt and was like “Daddy..I shit!”

            And she had.

          • Marv

            A girl ran up to him a few days ago and he immediately shat himself it was awesome, it was fucking loud lol

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            It is the appropriate response.

          • Marv

            I was just happy he didn’t start tugging on himself. That’s the worst lol

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            Especially after you shit yourself. That could develop into a terrible habit later in life.

  • Marv

    I mean really there’s no possible way I’d make it up that ramp at all and that dude is doing it in a dinosaur costume lol

    • Marv

      Absurd.

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    Man. It’s like there was a law that all Nokia N-Gage games must look and play like ass pee.

  • RudoWakening

    Have a good evening, fellows. I’m off to Sleepytown because 0400 comes way too soon.

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    I always wanted to smack Bobby Hill in the head.

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    Whooooooo! Random lucha!

  • Marv

    I’m going to look at colorized WWI pictures on reddit until these people get home. I’m hungry.

    • I’m using all my willpower to not kill people. I may just give in to the hate.

      • Marv

        Do it.

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        Don’t kill anyone. Find the leader and bite their left index finger off and spit it in a nearby plant.

        • Someone did that to him already.

          Maybe the pointer finger…?

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            Hire Maynard’s niece to punch them in the gut.

          • I’m on it.

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            If anyone can find that gruff bastard, it’s you..

    • I’m almost more fascinated by the process of making them color than the pictures themselves.

  • I was just reading a short wiki bio on a somewhat obscure Canadian musician that features this :

    “Though many families revere the eldest male child, Kelly has always preferred his daughter.”

    I’m thinking that there might be a little sibling rivalry at play here.

    • Marv

      Or that boy was just a real fuck up.

  • I is back from kickball.

  • Marv

    I’m looking at the damn solar eclipse and like…if I left NYC at midnight that Sunday and just plowed through all night to Columbia, SC I could see 2.5 minutes of it. But…we’ll be drinking Sunday…

    • You should do it.

      • Marv

        Yeah I think I’m going to have to cut myself off at like 6 p.m. that evening, I want to chase an eclipse

        • Even better – just go to SC and skip NYC all together.

          • Marv

            I hear the humidity is better down there at least, god damn. I was looking at forecasts and it’s saying high 80s with like 65%+ humidity the whole time I’m there. I need a Mr. Freeze costume.

          • High 80s with like 65% humidity.

            LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL THAT’S IT? THAT’S OCTOBER HERE.

          • Marv

            The more I move about the country the more I realize how blessed we are in the northwest lol

  • What’s good, y’all?

    • Marv

      Kinda buzzed, thinking about solar eclipses

      • They’re pretty crazy, conceptually.

        • Marv

          I want to go see one for two minutes in two weeks.

          • Might be worth it.

          • Marv

            An 11 hour bomb down I-95 sounds hilariously unwise, I think I have to try

          • Go for it. A year from now, 5, 10 years from now, etc. you won’t remember the drive, only the awesome eclipse.

    • I’m convincing Marv to skip NYC on his trip altogether.

    • FriendshipIsTheBest!

      Friendship!!! It’s not just good…it’s the best!!!!!!!

  • Aaaaaaand the BoD is down for some reason.

    • BAR THE DOORS, PEOPLE!

    • Yeah. Looks like they’ve been down for a few hours at least. Maybe Scott finally had enough. The return of Dougie has ruined that place anyway, it has become unbearable.

      • That bad, eh?

        • Well, we lost over half of the regular posters, so all that’s left over there is everybody getting troll baited by Dougie, under his new alias.

    • Daniel O’Reilly

      Clearly it’s one of the nerds here nerding things up over there.

    • WE WON THE WAR!!!
      I’m kidding everyone

  • Marv

    The only ish is that an eclipse means no Camden Yards so like…hmph

    • If the eclipse saves you a trip to Baltimore, it’s a win-win. I live here and I wish I could avoid Baltimore.

      • Marv

        I really liked Baltimore when I was there last year. I like a city that has zero pretension.

        • This would be a good time to visit, I understand my people are under a ceasefire lately.

        • A lack of pretension can be okay, until you realize that’s just a nice way of saying the city has no class.

          • Marv

            Nah. That place had a good vibe. I’m serious for everywhere I went last year Baltimore was kind of the tops. I liked the few parts I saw, and that ballpark is a jewel and that counts for a lot.

          • To be fair, it’s different to live here. It can be a charming city if you’re just passing through.

          • Marv

            Oh I’m sure I didn’t say I wanted to stay. I’m just sad to miss it, I’m sad to miss another game in that park but I think a once every 20 years eclipse is probably worth skipping it for.

    • wait why does the eclipse prevent this?

      • Marv

        It’s the same day I’d be in Baltimore. I’d have to leave NYC at midnight on Sunday and drive through the night to SC

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    Aww poop…well not really poop but I didn’t want to spawn in the heart of Los Santos. I’m gonna get my car shot up…and I will have to restart.

  • I wonder if Mama Cass is the most unattractive famous woman ever. I think she’s got to be.

  • FriendshipIsTheBest!

    Hey! If the BOD is down, then maybe we can talk wrestling here now!!!!!!! So how about that Enzo?

    • Daniel O’Reilly

      He’s going to be in a Shark Cage at the Summerfest!

    • Oh yeah, Disqus is coming down.

      Nice knowing all of you!

    • I love Enzo. I realize I’m in the minority. I can understand why he wouldn’t be well liked or popular in the WWE locker room, but that to me is more an indictment of how many uptight, colorless geeks are clogging up that roster right now.

      • FriendshipIsTheBest!

        I watched a bit of Raw tonight with two grade school kids! Enzo was the most over with them BY FAR! Vince is crazy to even think about letting him go…

        • Daniel O’Reilly

          He should be Bayley’s manager! Then kids would love her again!

          • FriendshipIsTheBest!

            That’s a great idea!!!

          • FriendshipIsTheBest!

            Bayley has the biggest balloons I’ve ever seen!

        • He’s not going to let him go. He is going to continue to pay him and put him on TV for years to come, because WWE doesn’t fire anybody ever.

    • Marv
    • People are still commenting in the Raw thread.

      • Bruce Chung • a few seconds ago
        Choking on nuts…dammit.

        • Marv

          …my joke rolodex just flew off the table hold on a second

          • I’ve been chuckling to myself ever since I posted that. It was just the most recent post when I clicked over.

          • Why does that idiot even bother? He has 95% of the posters blocked. He just posts to keep a running diary of his own thoughts with no input from others.

          • I’m curious what his criteria for blocking is.

          • If you also happen to post.

          • He blocked me because I kept linking here.

          • He blocked me because I retold a story that he told about himself several times.

          • Marv

            He blocked me because I kept saying he was a pathetic fuck. My story is slightly more understandable than the others I guess.

          • He’s a miserable piece of shit.

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            He blocked me because he’s a no good rat soup eating low down god awful motherfucker and he knows I know that.

          • Story checks out.

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            See? You know the score.

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            And maybe because I refer to him as BruChu.

          • I’ve..never seen you call him that.

          • Oh, I have.

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            It’s happened. Just not when you are around

          • Curtis Williams

            Wut

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            Shhhh. Don’t you worry about that. It’s just a little lightning is all. Go back to sleep, bubby.

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            Eh, sometimes that works for folks..

          • Miko363

            He responds to me quite a bit. Now I feel very uncomfortable.

      • Daniel O’Reilly

        Yeah. It’s still up.

      • I can’t even find it on Disqus.

  • someone say Bea Arthur? https://youtu.be/RzXKySxPFCI?t=44s

  • Nice voice though.

    Joni Mitchell was a bit of a horse face herself, but I like her.

  • Marv

    I really need to buy a better camera. Does anyone know about like, cameras?

  • well I came I got a cosby reference in… I left.
    good night everybody hope we can still comment tomorrow

    • FriendshipIsTheBest!

      Good night Peyton my buddy!!!

    • Well, some of us will be able to.

      • sweet…just going to keep the riff raff out but let us elite posters stay…. gotcha boss!

    • Daniel O’Reilly

      You can always climb through the chimney to get to the BoD thread if you can’t comment here.

  • Curtis Williams

    Did the BoD go down or was it just me?

  • What do you guys think Lex Luger is doing right now?

    • You didn’t know? He’s Matt_Indeed.

      • I do kind of wish that some low card shlub like Headbanger Thrasher is posting here disguised as somebody like… oh, I dunno… Hoss.

    • Miko363

      Emailing Scott Keith more questions about himself.

      • “Do you think Luger should have gone over for the Title at Summerslam ’93? I sure do! I thought I, er, Luger could have been a great champion!”

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      Trying to sell a patriotic bus on eBay?

  • A lot of really good books coming out tomorrow. I’m having trouble narrowing it down.

    • Marv

      Any war stuff?

    • Facts

      Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 comes out on Digital!

      • Daniel O’Reilly

        Marv loves that movie.

      • Marv

        I guess that’s tomorrow’s watch.

      • Ugh… I have to make sure to check digital releases… fuck… Thanks, dude. I would’ve blanked on it.

        • Facts

          I already have it preordered on The ‘Zon.

  • Facts
    • Daniel O’Reilly

      Any good?

      • Facts

        I have not read it yet.

        I am still backed up on other stuff

  • Facts

    Watched the He-Man cartoon on Netflix earlier.

    I was distracted by his hair the entire time.

    • Daniel O’Reilly

      Aj Styles hair.

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    GTA fun for me now means standing in my driveway while I post shit here.

  • Facts

    Also saw Raw was on and flipped over to a UFC show.

  • BoD is back up for those who were concerned.

    • Oh thank God…

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      Meh.

    • I’ve had that thread loaded the whole time. I didn’t feel like watching Raw tonight. I mean, it’s in Toronto, psh.

      • I don’t know any well adjusted adult who *wants* to watch RAW in 2017.

        • I enjoy watching how hard they zig when they’re supposed to zag.

        • Miko363

          I try, but after about 10 minutes I realize I don’t care anymore.

          The sad thing is that the show has moved back up to decent/pretty good lately, but the damage has been done.

        • Daniel O’Reilly

          Watch is too strong a word. It’s background noise, or something to nap to.

  • Marv

    There is nothing like quilting night on a kid, he comes home zonked every single time. It’s two straight hours of him running from old lady to old lady getting treated like a rock star that shit is tiring apparently.

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      Quite.

  • I picked out 20 books to whittle down for tomorrow’s thread.

  • Facts

    It is friggin hot in this house.

    • Marv

      The AC gets fixed tomorrow I can’t goddamn wait. It cooled off a bit but it’s still no fun.

      • Facts

        Its been almost two weeks for us and its West Texas.

        • Marv

          Honest to god dude that could definitely be part of the recent troubles, y’know? That long being hot and miserable is bound to make everyone cranky lol

    • It cooled off here today finally.

      And the AC is functional at any rate.

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    I hate it when I get invites to stunt race but they are shitty homemade courses.

    …. GTA problems.

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    Hey wait…I have salad somewhere in this house. Thousand Island too. I should go find that.

  • I never played No Man’s Sky.

    • Mr. Money On The Table
