Trailer Thursdays – August 10

It’s once again time to take a look at some of the trailers that catch my as we look to the future to see what will entertain us in the coming months.

First up today is the final voiceover performance for ADAM WEST as Batman. The upcoming home release animated feature BATMAN VS. TWO-FACE will see the Caped Crusader going up against one of his deadliest foes, voiced by the always amazing William Shatner! Burt Ward and Julie Newmar are also back from the Batman ’66 series.

Batman vs. Two-Face is set for an October 17 release.

As we learned earlier this week, the MILLARWORLD line of comic books will be mined for material for Netflix, but first, one of Mark Millar’s best Hollywood successes – KINGSMAN: THE GOLDEN CIRCLE – is getting a sequel.

Kingsman 2: The Golden Circle comes out September 22.

Talk about the latest trailers and anything else that’s on your mind right here!

  • Good grief, yesterday’s open thread got HOW MANY comments?

    I love you guys.

    • TatR!

      Hello! Sounds like it was a fun night! It was a fun day! Let’s count along with todays comments. This is #2.

    • yeah maybe today all the fun stuff won’t happen as soon as I head home

      • Matt_InGeeked

        What fun stuff?

      • I wasn’t really around, either. Definitely missed a lot.

        • It was strange because I was in a bit of a bla mood and ontop of that this place had gone cold before I went home so I was surprised since those late afternoon early evening hours tend to be slower that everyone was having a blast. I was just like (not seriously) Oh fine.. now you guys have a party when I leave!

          • TatR!

            Key Factor: TatR stayed up later than usual

    • Diddly

      But how much of that was just gifs posted by Bayless?

  • TatR!

    Have you guys seen this video? It’s been a story here the last few days. God bless that bus driver for managing to swerve so quickly. This guy

    • weird and he seems to go straight at her. Not like.. “dumb bitch is in my personal space while I try and jog I’m going to push her” more “I’m going to go over and push that lady into the road.”

      Has there been follow up? any leads? what did the woman say?

      • TatR!

        He apparently doubled back 15 minutes later on the other side of the road and she called to him but he ignored her. They’ve not identified him yet. But yeah, it’s not like he doesn’t notice he hits her, though he couldn’t necessarily have known there was a bus there or she’d gone into the road. Psychopath still

    • Matt_InGeeked

      This is the kind of thing where I hope I’m wrong and hell exists.

  • RudoWakening

    Top o’ the mornin’, geeks. Let’s have a good day. I will be cutting 20″ pipe with a torch and trying not to be on fire.

    • Matt_InGeeked

      But what are you going to be doing at work today?

      • TatR!

        yeah right? Lucky Frida!

  • Matt_InGeeked

    Morning, geeks! I’ve now lost 4 lbs!

    • TatR!

      Hurrah!

    • Woot!

      • Matt_InGeeked

        This whole eating healthy and exercising thing may work after all.

        • That’s fantastic, dude.

          • Matt_InGeeked

            Thanks. It’s being deleted from the right area too. The dad belly looked less prevalent this morning.

    • good for you..though This makes me feel like a wasting bowl of goo since I haven’t worked out the last couple days and been as good on my eating and drinking

      • Matt_InGeeked

        Get back on it, sir!

        • I’m going attempt 8 mile run after work. diet wise I’ll be good until Tuesday With Marv

          which is also the title of my next book

          • Matt_InGeeked

            That’s very close to another book title.

      • TatR!

        oh it’s peyton yeah I wondered who brought goo

  • Facts

    TGFS

    Thank God For Sprite.

    • Matt_InGeeked

      It’s 8:20am.

      • Facts

        Dinner didn’t agree with me.

  • Matt_InGeeked

    So I just went back to yesterday’s thread and read through some of it, and noticed Marv is driving through Columbia, SC.

    I lived in Columbia, SC until 7 months ago. That could have been quite the meet-up.

    • He would’ve stopped to have lunch

      • Matt_InGeeked

        It could have been special. What can ya do?

  • Matt_InGeeked

    I haven’t seen the first Kingsmen.

    I have also not seen:
    Avengers 2
    Civil War
    Iron Man 3
    Thor 2
    Doctor Strange
    Batman v. Superman
    Wonder Woman
    Suicide Squad
    Deadpool

    And that’s just what I can think of off the top of my head.

    • Matt_InGeeked

      One may wonder why I even come to a mostly comic book website when I clearly don’t keep up with any of it.

    • I have seen 7 of those

    • In order of enjoyment starting at the top
      Deadpool
      Civil War
      Iron man 3
      Avengers 2
      Kingsmen
      Doctor Strange
      Thor 2
      Batman vs Superman
      Suicide Squad

      have not seen wonder woman

      • Matt_InGeeked

        Interesting. One day we may compare lists.

        • I actually don’t remember if I like batman or suicide better

          I feel like there was more bang for it’s buckin BvS but SS was a lot shorter

      • The Professor

        sounds about right

    • FriendshipIsTheBest!

      I’ve seen all these! I liked them all!

    • Freak.

  • Matt_InGeeked

    Ugh, work. brb

  • FriendshipIsTheBest!

    Good morning, buddies! It’s going to be a great day!!! I’ve just fed Stevie, now I think I’m going to have some pancakes for breakfast!!!!! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/d3b83674fd7ce09bb56d0dc469769f772de9d02135d18d651ca6be2b87490ffe.gif

    • Matt_InGeeked

      Who’s Stevie?

      • FriendshipIsTheBest!

        My goldfish!

        • Matt_InGeeked

          Oh. We only have one goldfish left. We had 4, but the second to last one died yesterday.

  • Colussus sucked.

    Watching The Circle. Creepy as fuck.

    • FriendshipIsTheBest!

      I haven’t seen either one yet! I want to!!

    • I’d like to see The Circle some time. Seems like a movie I would enjoy. Or, at least, tolerate.

  • Facts

    I liked the first Kingsmen movie. Hope the 2nd one is good.

  • Matt_InGeeked

    Mammo office: “Help! We lost connection! We need this PC quickly and the help desk will take forever!”

    I ran down to the office and plugged in the network cable that somehow became ajar.

    I’ve been hailed as a genius.

    They don’t know computers in Mammo.

    • DAJackson7

      A lady called while ago and worried because her second monitor is black every morning….she has to log on to make it come on….uggggghhhh

      • Matt_InGeeked

        Yep, I’ve heard that one several thousand times.

  • Matt_InGeeked

    TI wakes up and tells my wife, “I miss daddy. I miss daddy all the time.” So they called me to tell me this.

    And now I want to quit work.

  • Mikey

    Browns start today with pre season 🙁

    Going to root for the Patriots again this year.

    • Matt_InGeeked

      Root for the Browns, you fair weather fan! Be miserable like the rest of us!

      • Mikey

        Nah, they moved when I was young and I’ve never been attached to them.

        • Matt_InGeeked

          Shouldn’t you be a Ravens fan then?

          • Mikey

            Pats!

          • Matt_InGeeked

            Gross.

  • Matt_InGeeked

    @stevenferrari:disqus What’s this about your governor thinking about running for President? Nothing rust belt Americans love more than a New Yorker.

    • Forget that, the man is a Clinton Democrat who probably wouldn’t even win New York in the Democratic Primary. Because in order to do that, you need to have the support of New York City, and as he continues to war with our Mayor (who I think is a giant too) and have pissing matches over how to pay for repairs to the City subway system, that’s not happening.

      • Matt_InGeeked

        Got it. Thanks for clearing that up.

  • FriendshipIsTheBest!

    Hey guys! There were a bunch of Canadian geese on the side of the road just now, hanging out and having fun!!! They reminded me of us!!!!

    • Matt_InGeeked

      We have Canadian geese in our Neighborhood all the time. We wait for them to cross the street a lot.

      • Matt_InGeeked

        They shit in my driveway a lot. They’re kind of assholes.

  • The Silver Fox

    Queen’s “Fat Bottomed Girls” is a good antidote for a quiet morning.

    • Matt_InGeeked

      They do make the rockin’ world go ’round.

  • Diddly

    Hello!

  • Urgoz Bone-Grinder

    ” A popular singer has been arrested for “dabbing” during a concert in south-west Saudi Arabia.

    Dabbing is banned in the conservative country where authorities consider it a reference to narcotics culture.”

    Time to move to Saudi Arabia.

    • Matt_InGeeked

      I’m sure you’ll have fun.

      • Urgoz Bone-Grinder

        I can bang multiple wives, I can’t ask for anything more.

  • Matt_InGeeked

    Geez, the Dodgers have won 80 games already.

    • 53-game winning streak helps.

      • Matt_InGeeked

        You think they win more than the 2001 Mariners?

        • They’re on pace to tie the 1998 Yankees right now, I think.

        • Mikey

          They’re on pace for like 114-115. I see them more around 109.

    • The Professor

      means nothing if they don’t win the world series (see mariners, patriots, and warriors)

      • Dodgers in the series would be fun.

        • The Professor

          I hope not. I am more of an angels fan than Dodgers fan and get crap about it from friends/coworkers.

      • Matt_InGeeked

        True.

      • Devin Harris

        I don’t see it that way. It’s still an amazing accomplishment.

  • I know no one cares about my Preacher recaps, but, you know, I write them, so I also try and promote them.

  • TatR!

    You know what’s badly acted? Company training videos.

    • Matt_InGeeked

      The people they get to do that are either 1) employees who aren’t actors, or 2) Actors who will act for $50 and a gift card to Applebees.

    • The Polish Hammer

      I hereby propose a new line of company training videos starring Nicolas Cage. You just know people will pay attention to those. I just need a couple million dollars of start-up money.

      • TatR!

        He’d be way better than useless Jackie and useless Carol

    • The Professor

      the teacher ones are really bad.
      Every year we have to watch one on bloodborn pathogens and other poisons. It’s like those people from the infomercials, “I just did something really stupid and now I don’t know what to do.” “Here let me help you.”

      • TatR!

        ooh poisons, that sounds a LITTLE exciting

        • The Professor

          not really.

          It’s like don’t drink windex

          • TatR!

            Hm. Yeah training videos can make anything boring.

    • Facts

      I laugh so hard watching those.

  • My wife will be 33 on Monday. She told The Boy and he said “whoa, that’s SO OLD!”

    And I laughed and laughed.

  • TatR!

    In 2013 a masters student was jailed for 12 months for attempting to bribe their tutor with £5000 for a passing grade

    • Urgoz Bone-Grinder

      Everyone knows from porno vids you’re supposed to blow the tutor.

  • The Polish Hammer

    My current anime fixation is Sakura Quest. I love it because it features insanely cute girls who, unlike 99% of anime, are actually older than high school age.

  • Matt_InGeeked

    Since, I’m listening to him right now…

    I think if you have these 10 albums, you’re in good shape. 🙂

    • The Polish Hammer

      I remember those days when artists would release an album every year or two. Those were good days.

      • Matt_InGeeked

        Sometimes 2 in a year.

        • The Polish Hammer

          Now they put out an album, tour for two years, take a year off, and then take two years to make the next album.

        • The Professor

          didn’t the beatles have like 3-4/year

          • Matt_InGeeked

            Yep.

  • seeso is closing it’s doors huh? I wonder where all the SNL and kids the hall and such will go

  • Devin Harris

    I’ve been very busy this morning. Will probably be busy all day except for this very moment

    • The Polish Hammer

      Someday you’ll look back on this very moment with great fondness.

      • Devin Harris

        I already do

    • Mikey

      Why so busy?

      • Devin Harris

        Classes start Monday so it’s making sure everything is ready to go while also handling all my regular duties.

        • Mikey

          Oh damn dude. Where are you going to school?

          • Devin Harris

            I’m not going to school. I work for one.

        • The Professor

          My classes start tuesday.
          However I have a new room and a new class this year so I have to set that up.

          • Devin Harris

            We got fancy projectors installed in each classroom so I bet the instructors will be thrilled to see that come Monday

  • The Professor

    What a royal family shake-up! Queen Elizabeth has officially named her beloved grandson Prince William and his wife, Kate Middleton, the next King and Queen of England, according to Life & Style magazine. Unfortunately, this means the Queen’s eldest son, Prince Charles, has officially been skipped over in the British monarchy’s line of succession.

    Sucks to be you charles

    • TatR!

      I presume Charles will now attempt to overthrow the monarchy, should be fun

      • The Professor

        “Her Majesty realized that William and Kate are the future,” said a palace insider. “She has spent 65 years making sure that the House of Windsor survives, and she sees William and Kate as having the energy and star quality to do the job in a modern world. Queen Elizabeth will always do what is best for the long-term health of the monarchy.”
        Her Majesty has also said that she truly does not believe the monarchy has the “respect and power it once had.” The source continued, “In her eyes, William and Kate are the two people who can turn that around.”

      • Diddly

        Beware of getting inside any limousines being trailed by paparazzi!

    • Good. That giant ears having bastard deserves nothing!

    • Where does TatR fit in to the line of succession?

      • The Professor

        I always tell my students that they could be the next king or queen of england. Billions of people might have die first but it could happen

      • TatR!

        Behind Ioan, ahead of Adam Wright

    • It’s already been pointed out on the BoD, but since he’s cross-posted it it’s worth pointing out here that this story is nonsense. The source is Yahoo News, and THEIR source is UK gossip magazine Closer.

      • The Professor

        but I read it on the internet; it must be true

      • I read the BBC site this morning and this wasn’t mentioned, so I suspected chicanery.

        • It would at least be in the UK news section if there was a change to the succession to the throne.

  • FriendshipIsTheBest!

    First task of the day, eating a pancake, is complete!!! Now to go swimming! I hope that pancake doesn’t make me sink! Yesterday, I scraped my knee on the bottom of the pool!

  • Diddly

    2 people’s last day today. One is a girl that was never a bitch to me and the other is an asshole who never did any work, so it’s a push. This leaves the only team members as myself and the girl who tells people I’m going to bring a gun to work and shoot them. So yeah, spending time on Indeed today

    • Facts

      Why would you bring a gun to work? Is it because you watch wrasslin’?

      • Diddly

        I don’t even own a gun! The girl is just a bitch

    • TatR!

      Indeed?

      • Diddly

        Job posting website

        • TatR!

          Oh I thought you meant our good friend

          • Matt_InGeeked

            We can dream, can’t we?

          • Diddly

            I should have rolled with that for the upvotes and lols 🙁

      • Matt_InGeeked

        He’s on me.

      • He’ll be on top on Matt today.

        This is a new twist in our little group here.

    • FriendshipIsTheBest!

      You know, Diddly, making friends with women is sorta tricky! Most are taught that if a guy’s acting friendly he just wants to fuck them…

      But then some women take offense once they find out you just want to be their friend, like you’re saying they’re not hot enough or something! It can be very confusing…

      • Diddly

        These girls are so mean, they wouldn’t even want to be friends with you!

        • FriendshipIsTheBest!

          Mean girls! They’re the worst!

  • Marv
    • The Professor

      I have to go into work tomorrow. Ugh

      • I’m on summer hours so only a half a day and then we’ve got a sitter for the weekend so my wife and I can go out.

    • Matt_InGeeked

      Do you realize I lived in Columbia until 7 months ago?

      • Marv

        Well that does me no good now does it?

        • Matt_InGeeked

          Nope. lol

          I just saw in the thread from last night you were going through there, and I was like, “Ahh, really? Suuuuucks.”

          • Marv

            I only plan on being there for about 2.5 minutes. Where are you now?

          • Matt_InGeeked

            Way too far away from ATL and Columbia. Maybe next time.

  • TatR!

    I think being asked to take part in a company training video might be my worst nightmare

    • Marv

      Depends on if you’re the front of the train or you’re the caboose.

      • TatR!

        Hmm. Human centipede or company training video. I’d probably just do the centipede because at least then people aren’t watching it for years and years thinking you’re a cunt.

    • Diddly

      Make sure to give a BIIIIIIIIG smile and thumbs up to the camera!

      • TatR!

        Carol. Why are. You still here the fire alarm. Has been ringing.
        so?
        So the fire alarm Carol. We need to? Get out of the. Building.

  • The Professor

    To me, the worst is being a member of the royal family but having no shot at the throne.

    You get all the paparazzi and headaches, but always referred to as the backup.

    • TatR!

      you get all your meals cooked and get to go to sporting events and your ass wiped, its not so bad

      • Diddly

        Plus Prince Harry parades around Vegas in penthouses with lots of hot, naked women, which sounds fun

        • The Professor

          I thought he is engaged to the actress from Suits

          • Diddly

            Probably, but the Vegas thing happened a few years ago

    • Some of them aren’t chased as closely, and still get many of the perks. I could be a d list royal I think, but I wouldn’t want to be a first liner.

  • Phone interview next Tuesday at 1 pm.

  • FriendshipIsTheBest!

    Hey guys! You ever wish that we all lived in a monastery or commune or something like that so that we could all just be friends and hang out and not have any worries or responsibilities?

    • TatR!

      Stop trying to recruit us through niceness!

      • FriendshipIsTheBest!

        I thought we were forming a cult!

    • I think that monks have a lot of duties.

    • Facts

      No, I need to get laid.

      • FriendshipIsTheBest!

        We could still go out and get laid! We could be each other’s wingmen!

        • Facts

          Well in that case

    • Diddly

      Me after 3 days in this monastery:

      “HOT TAKE! This place sucks!”

      • FriendshipIsTheBest!

        But we’re all here every day anyway!

        • TatR!

          I don’t think monasterys have internet access so what would we just act GIFs out?

          • FriendshipIsTheBest!

            Ok so not a monastery…

        • But there’s a lot less silent prayer here, and quite a few of us get to touch boobs.

    • Matt_InGeeked

      No.

    • Are we filming it for the Geekery’s first YouTube series?

      • FriendshipIsTheBest!

        Maybe! Can I nominate myself as mod?

        • Nope

        • TatR!

          I support your nomination. Your first task is to ban Kenny Reigns.

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            Well, if you want 24/7 Friendship, then I guess…

          • Matt_InGeeked

            ^^^ ADMISSION, ADMISSION!

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            I’m just saying my good buddy Friendship would have to pick up my slack.

  • Belgian monks brew beer. I could maybe get into that.

  • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

    This is some kind of amazing…the Mr Plinkett review of Ghostbusters (2016).

    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=AHUV8QLpEAc

    • Matt_InGeeked

      Is this a nerd bro who feels like his “CHILDHOOD IS RUINED!”?

      • TatR!

        He’s a funny guy on his other stuff. Ghostbusters 2016 was terrible on it’s own terms.

        • Matt_InGeeked

          I haven’t seen it, but I assume it’s like most Kristen Whig endeavors where the jokes can be funny sometimes, but the plot is bologna. Which probably makes it okay.

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            He makes the case Kristin Wiig should have written it since she’s in the movie and the genius behind Bridesmaids.

          • Matt_InGeeked

            By the way, Bridesmaids is, in my opinion, one of the 5 best comedies of the last 30 years.

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            It’s great! The first 20 minutes or so of this review is about how Sony got all the people who were responsible for Bridesmaids and then gave control to the people who did the least amount of work on it.

          • Matt_InGeeked

            How long is the review? “First 20 minutes”….geez.

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            An hour. The Mr Plinkett reviews are usually 2+ hours.

          • Matt_InGeeked

            Christ.

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            They’re really for story nerds.

          • Holy crap, I hate it when the actual movie runs that long.

          • TatR!

            Wiig should write a script and then deliver the lines. It’s so blatantly obvious when she’s in Improv mode that even when it’s funny it completely stops the movie. In real life people don’t normally riff for several minutes while everyone stands around and watches.

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            Yeah. A lot of actors and comedians need structure and for lines to be written out. Very, very few commediand are good at improv.

          • Devin Harris

            And I think blocking is something comedians and improv people don’t think about which is why all the standing around

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            That’s a really great point!

      • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

        Nope. Not at all. The Red Letter Media guys are phenomenal at breaking down movies both good and bad. When they do Mr Plinkett, they go in-depth on why a movie doesn’t work almost scene by scene. It’s great stuff for story nerds like myself who get really into stuff like how characters are developed or how dialog works.

        • Matt_InGeeked

          Interesting. I’ll probably watch it at some point.

    • The Professor

      must be an “I hate women” video

  • TatR!

    Oh nice. I think I’ve seen this traning video before. It’s got a guy in it who has an irrational hatred of people in wheelchairs.

    • The Polish Hammer

      Does he push any of them down a flight of stairs?

  • The Polish Hammer

    It is taking me FOREVER to compose this one email for work. I literally started two hours ago but I keep having to reword things.

    Annoying thing about Japanese management: You have to be really particular with how you phrase things. Add in the fact I’m discussing a very technical subject and suddenly I’m going through six drafts of a message before I can hit send.

    • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

      Oh yeah. Japanese e-mails are fun because you have to talk about a lot of stuff like the weather or whatever and then get super granular and accurate while not saying anything that could suggest blame. I always enjoyed it.

      • Devin Harris

        I deal with a lot of Germans and it’s probably the opposite.

        • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

          Germans want e-mails that are to the point with no fluff. I didn’t enjoy those as much.,

          • Devin Harris

            They aren’t a very warm and friendly group.

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            Israelis are even worse.

  • I watched the Bill Murray picture Stripes last night. It was fine. I enjoyed it.

  • The Polish Hammer

    I watch Masterminds the other day. Comedy with Kristen Wiig, Owen Wilson and Zach Galifanakipuss. Not a classic but better than I expected. It was like A Fish Called Wanda but with inbred rednecks.

  • Devin Harris

    Teachers are the most technology averse group of people I’ve ever been around. Learning is a two way street.

    • The Professor

      new teachers are pretty good at it. veterans HATE it

      • Devin Harris

        Last year one dude brought in a VHS and asked for help playing it. I started to say no just off general principle

      • Matt_InGeeked

        Yep. I have a few new teachers who are friends who are great with tech….but the old ones just refuse.

    • The Polish Hammer

      WHY THE HELL DOES MY KID STILL NEED TO BUY PENCILS?

    • A high percentage of people in insurance are exactly the same.

      • Devin Harris

        I could understand it in that profession but how can you complain about students not wanting to learn when you have the same attitude towards learning something new?

        • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

          That’s American education! It’s why we’re one of the lowest ranked in the world..

          • The Polish Hammer

            Still better than some, though.

            Suck it, Ghana.

          • Devin Harris

            The blind leading the blinder

    • The Professor

      I think the problem with a lot of the technology is the people who introduce think it will be a great cure for all of education’s ills. However, kids still need to read and write and do math.

      • Devin Harris

        I doubt think it really helps with learning but it’s the world we live in. They are going to see computers everywhere else so why shouldn’t they be in the classroom?

        • The Professor

          I agree. One problem I have is that the computers I have are woefully outdated and I only have 2

  • I had to skip breakfast today which I never do. I’m hungry. But I’m out for lunch and don’t want to spoil my appetite at this point.

  • The Professor

    When my district bought ipads to test them out at a few schools, every admin thought it was great. They blocked things like facebook and NSFW sites. Within a few hours, kids already found a way around it.

    • Devin Harris

      That actually warms my heart because it shows they can apply themselves when motivated.

    • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

      Of course they did. Kids are good with technology because they’re motivated and there’s a reward. Adults aren’t because they’re just trying to half-assedly put up obstacles.

    • I’m mixed on that stuff in schools. I think it’s largely a distraction, and an expense on a system that always seems to lack funds.

      Kids will learn to use iPads on their own. My 4 year old is already pretty adept. If you just teach math, then math with an iPad will come very easily.

  • Tranquilo Baby Tranquilo

    Did somebody say improv?

    • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

      I said most comedians aren’t good at it. They need to work on writing their lines over and over to be funny.

  • Matt_InGeeked

    This should probably be a Hot Take: Step Brothers is probably my favorite comedy of all-time.

    Anytime I see it on TV, I watch it. I absolutely love everything about it. It’s Will Ferrell’s best movie. I know it got mixed reviews when it came out, but I thought people were crazy….I laugh out loud more with that movie than any other.

    • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

      Stepbrothers is *hysterical*. One of my absolute favorites, too!

      John C Reily is my favorite actor, though.

      • Matt_InGeeked

        He’s tremendous in it.

        • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

          He’s tremendous in almost everything.

          • Matt_InGeeked

            True!

    • Diddly

      Fuckin’ Catalina Wine Mixer!

    • RudoWakening

      It’s SOOOOOOOOOOO fucking funny. I’ve seen it probably 25 times and still laugh my balls off

      • Matt_InGeeked

        That’s my barometer. “Do I still laugh at it out loud when I watch it?” And I do, every time.

    • I haven’t seen that one. In general I’m not a big fan of Ferrell’s “comedy” though.

      • The Professor

        I saw it once. Thought it was ok. Never been a huge fan of Ferrell’s non-snl stuff.

      • Matt_InGeeked

        He doesn’t overtake this one. He plays off John C. Reilly.

  • TatR!

    Nice. In this training video guys are looking at porn on the net and making lewd remarks about Sally, their coworker. Hopefully they’ll all start having sex in this one.

    • TatR!

      No buys.

  • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

    I really, really hate Judd Apatow movies. Everyone is an amoral narcissist and then I end up cheering against them.

    • Matt_InGeeked

      I love The 40-Year Old Virgin, Knocked Up and Superbad (just a producer)…but that’s it as far as Apatow goes. The rest isn’t very good to me.

      • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

        40-Year Old Virgin was funny, but that’s it for me.

        • Matt_InGeeked

          I get that.

    • TatR!

      Movies are mostly dreadful but I did really like the series Love

      • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

        I heard that was good, but his name on things kills any interest I have in anything.

      • Mikey

        Oh goodness, both characters were absolutely HORRIBLE in season 2.

      • Diddly

        And Shelton said he really did love the series Like!

        • TatR!

          BRING BACK SHELTON

    • FriendshipIsTheBest!

      Funny People is really good!

  • FriendshipIsTheBest!

    Hey Ferrari! I’ve got a nomination and a second!! If I’m a mod can I call myself Friendship Police?

    • TatR!

      that sounds really sinister

      • FriendshipIsTheBest!

        I’ve got more of a buddy cop scenario in mind!

  • Tranquilo Baby Tranquilo

    I hate that people equate improv with ad-libbing. They are not the same thing. I do recognize that comedians are mostly responsible for this being confused.

    • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

      Who cares? That’s such a fine line you’d need a microscope to see it.

      • Tranquilo Baby Tranquilo

        Not really.

    • Marv

      I equate it with never being funny or interesting.

      • Comdukakis

        I’d like to see him improve or ad-lib pretending to be a new poster. Oh wait…

  • A couple of years ago a guy died.. a comedic actor, I can’t remember his name and you guys were all like ohhh he was great and I’d literally never even heard the name. But now I’ve seen him in both Ghostbusters 1980s and Stripes. He played Egon.

    • Matt_InGeeked

      Harold Ramis.

      • Matt_InGeeked

        He also directed Caddyshack, Groundhog Day and National Lampoon’s Vacation.

        And he co-wrote Ghostbusters and National Lampoon’s Animal House.

        So…you know….only one of the best comedic minds of the 20th Century.

        • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

          Yep. He was a genius. He went too soon.

  • Mikey

    Love Season 2 was absolutely HORRIBLE. A fake nice guy who really is the biggest type of asshole and a girl that believes that because she has issues, she can be mean to anyone and it’s fine.

    • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

      Sounds like a typical Judd Apatow project. That literally describes every movie he’s done.

  • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

    The conclusion of the Mr Plinkett review is:

    1) Kristin Wiig should have written it
    2) Paul Feig is a hack
    3) It’s all Bill Murray’s fault for wasting the rest of Harold Ramis’s life voicing Garfield

  • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

    Hot Rod is my current favorite funniest movie. That movie is just non-stop hilarious to me.

  • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

    The Knife are back!!! Hell yes!!!

    I would LOVE a new Fever Ray album, too…

  • FriendshipIsTheBest!

    Hey guys! I feel really productive today! I already fed Stevie, ate my pancake, went swimming, and am two steps closer on my way to becoming a mod!! I assume my duties will be to drive PiKachu away whenever he’s being too insulting by reminding him that friendship > homophobia!

  • Matt_InGeeked

    I will agree with Katherine Heigl on one thing, Judd Apatow does seem to have a problem writing women who aren’t just the worst people in the world.

    • Diddly

      Unless that woman is Leslie Mann, in which she’s the perfect girl next door and every man’s desire

      • Matt_InGeeked

        Actually, Leslie’s character in This is 40, Knocked Up and Funny People are pretty god awful.

      • TatR!

        I found that unconvincing.

    • FriendshipIsTheBest!

      Are his male characters the best people in the world? If not, what’s the problem?

      • Matt_InGeeked

        His female characters are portrayed as “there she is again, being an irrational woman!”

        • FriendshipIsTheBest!

          Are his male characters the height of rationality? If not, what’s the problem?

          • Matt_InGeeked

            It’s more pronounced in his female leads.

          • FriendshipIsTheBest!

            Is it? Because Seth Rogen and Adam Sandler aren’t exactly guys I aspire to be like!

          • Matt_InGeeked

            Well, if we’re just talking Funny People, sure, they’re all terrible.

          • FriendshipIsTheBest!

            I feel like 40 Year Old Virgin pretty much makes fun of guys like us!

          • Matt_InGeeked

            That’s a good rep of what I’m talking about.

            Steve Carrell and Catherine Keener have this deep relationship and are clearing falling in love, and then she goes to his apartment and sees some porn and a medical sculpture of a vagina, and instead of asking him any questions like a rational person would do, calls him a freak and runs away from him without giving him any chance to explain.

            It’s not until he runs his bike through a fucking truck when she gives him the chance to explain.

          • FriendshipIsTheBest!

            That’s not all she sees in his apartment! He’s a 40 year old man who collects action figures!

          • Matt_InGeeked

            lol…ok.

          • FriendshipIsTheBest!

            It’s an understandable response! If you feel like a guy might be a creeper, get the hell out of there!

          • Matt_InGeeked

            I disagree. He had already sold some his his figures by that point, because she made him do it basically, then he helps her with her daughter, and is clearly a kind hearted guy….so he deserved a chance to explain it.

          • FriendshipIsTheBest!

            Well the movie gives him that chance, and if I had a daughter I’d be leery of Steve Carrell’s character too!

          • Matt_InGeeked

            Alright.

          • FriendshipIsTheBest!

            I liken this to a horror movie! When your watch one, it’s easy to tell the characters to get out of the haunted house! When you actually have a mortgage and a budget, though, you’re not going to flee for a motel just because you hear a strange noise!

            Same thing if you’re a (damaged) woman with a child! It’s one thing to want them to act rationally! But when you could be dealing with a creeper, and are at his place, and have to worry about rape and molestation more than us guys do, then I’d say it’s understandable to cut your losses and err on the side of safety!

          • Matt_InGeeked

            She was in a several months relationship with the guy at that point.

          • FriendshipIsTheBest!

            She can leave whenever she wants to if she has that much of a distrust of porn! She’s not the only woman to feel that way…

          • Matt_InGeeked

            I didn’t say she couldn’t leave. We’re going in circles for literally no reason at this point.

    • Comdukakis

      not in freaks and geeks.

      • FriendshipIsTheBest!

        Not in any of his movies really…

        • Comdukakis

          well I’d agree in the one Heigl and Rogan were in (name is escaping me) she was portrayed that way, but sometimes the real person comes through in the portrayal.

        • Matt_InGeeked

          You’re just being blatantly ignorant at this point just to argue. That’s fine. It’s silly, really.

          • FriendshipIsTheBest!

            No, I’m saying that Judd Apatow skewers women as much as men equally! And that women aren’t immune from satire, even though our culture wants them to be right now…

          • Matt_InGeeked

            I disagree. I don’t believe they are immune from satire. Nearly everything Kristen Wiig, Tina Fey, and Melissa McCarthy do is a satire on women.

          • FriendshipIsTheBest!

            What a coincidence that many of them come out of the Apatow factory then! Along with their male counterparts Rogen, Rudd, Hill, etc.!

          • Matt_InGeeked

            Out of the 3 I mentioned, none of them have been in an Apatow-directed role as a lead. They have been in Apatow-produced movies, but none that he wrote or directed as a lead.

          • FriendshipIsTheBest!

            So? He gave them a chance to shine, and worked with other women in starring roles! Also, if a director wants to make movies that focus on men, I have no problem with that! Apatow arguably features women more prominently than John Ford or Martin Scorsese! Still, that doesn’t make him a better artist…

      I thought she came across like what she said, but again she isn’t a real great person in real life, so….

      • Tranquilo Baby Tranquilo

        Weird that my posts seem to have cancelled each other out. Anyway, her character seemed like somebody that was emotional due to being pregnant with an overgrown high school kid’s child. I never found her to be irrational.

        • Comdukakis

          true. being pregnant would be a factor

    • Sorry, I’ll stop

    • Diddly

      My bad 🙁

      The post above was changed quite a bit by the original poster.

      • Tranquilo Baby Tranquilo

        I made two posts that somehow got combined. Not sure how that even happened.

  • Matt_InGeeked

    Leslie Mann’s character in Knocked Up/This is 40 seems way more irrational than Paul Rudd. My wife brought that up. It annoys her to no end.

    • Matt_InGeeked

      Whoever is replying, TL;DR.

  • Matt_InGeeked

    Anyway, it’s funny, I don’t care for how he portrays women sometimes, but I probably like more of his movies than others here. So it’s a critique that I can obviously be okay with ultimately.

    • Mikey

      I’m in your boat. Though I dunno, after Bridesmades he’s kinda been rough lol.

      • Matt_InGeeked

        Completely agree.

    • For the most part EVERY SINGLE CHARACTER he writes is unlikable. It’s hard for me to get into his movies cuz I have no one to root for.

      • FriendshipIsTheBest!

        I agree with Ferrari! But I don’t need characters to be likable…

        • Usually helps

          • FriendshipIsTheBest!

            I’d rather they be interesting! Besides, I couldn’t call Downfall a great movie if I needed the main character to be likable!

          • Matt_InGeeked

            That’s a historical movie. Your logic is weird.

          • FriendshipIsTheBest!

    Nothing is more irrational in 40 Year Old Virgin than Steve Carrell choosing some worn out mother of several children over Kimberly Page!!!

      That we can agree on.

      The only thing that was funny about that movie was Melissa McCarthy v. Rudd/Mann, and even the outtakes are funnier.

      • FriendshipIsTheBest!

        The first 20 minutes are fantastic, but unfortunately it’s downhill from there… I still like it, though!

  • The Professor

    Seriously!!!!!!
    A colleague of mine told me about this great way to communicate with parents/students (Remind app). I can text/email all of them without giving them my personal number. Also a great way to tell parents that your kid has a test/project due. I spent several hours this summer learning about it and setting it up.

    Just got an email stating that the district is forcing us to use this new system that we have to be trained on. Sigh

    • ProjectBlue

      Haaaaaaaaate that. If you have a way that works for you, should be grandfathered into it. Plus they usually end up spending a fortune on a “package” that you can get 2 or 3 smaller apps to do for free

        …Mine’s been pushing facebook but blocks facebook from school computers. So would have to do it on your own time or nag IT to unblock every computer I use. (Multiple buildings, no classroom in 1, class push ins in others for robotics.)…so I don’t bother

        I have to do report cards this year. Flew under the radar for first 5 years of job.

        • Blackjack Jowalsen

          No way I could have gotten away with that. We need to have ours updated at least twice a week (although they prefer every week, obviously.) At my first job, they counted your assignments every Monday to see if you were keeping up. My current school has a bit more faith in us.

          • ProjectBlue

            Library never did them and we kind of went along with that when they started offering technology classes. Basically when hired I got to design the program and was told “as long as they can type on the test, we don’t care what you do”….five years later, I spend most of my time with them programming or robotics.

      • The Silver Fox

        Same here. Not looking forward to it.

      • ProjectBlue

        ….ours sucks though because they apparently have no way to individually name each class so I have a list of 35 “media/Technology” classes so will have to guess which class I’m actually clicking on and hoping it’s the right one…good times. PowerTeacher my ass

  • Let’s do a Daily Hollywood Deadline Roundup!
    Spiderman and Star Wars Rey will be joining Sons of Anarchy creator in Chaos Walking based on the YA book. Someone finally wrote a post apocalyptic young adult novel!

    Deadpool director Tim Miller will make the William Gibson 1984 book Neuromancer (anyone read this? It’s on my list but I’ve heard mixed things. )

    J-Law has said she liked the script but yeah how they ended up telling the story in Passengers it comes off creepy

    Rogue One and The Night Of star Riz Ahmed seems to be joining Tom Hardy in Venom

    Katie Holmes is set to star in an adaptation of Ryback’s favorite book. The Secret… I’m assuming Holmes will be playing a sort of attractive woman with a nice rack who can barely move half of her face.. maybe CG effects cures her bells palsy by the end cause you know…. the secret!

    And that’s the Hot Gos From Hollyweird

    • also if they do my idea hopefully Andy Serkis plays the side of her face

    • ProjectBlue

      Have mentioned it before, but it’s really only creepy if you’re reading the wikipedia summary. I thought they did enough leg work in the actual movie to “earn” his decisions.

      • She agreed with the majority of it should have started with her being woke up and then reveled late.

        • ProjectBlue

          So her first then Pratt wakes up or just start with Pratt waking her up? I think it’d look worse if it starts immediately with Pratt waking her up because you lose how desperately alone he was and how long he farted around by himself

          • pratt waking her up. I’ve not seen the movie but feel i know the gist of it

          • ProjectBlue

            Huh. Seems like it’d be creepier that way even with the reveal later.

          • not having seen it I would think it would be a better viewing experience where you don’t know any of that and get to watch these two characters and get to know them and then a reveal would make you question your feelings about it all instead of watching this relationship built on lies unfold with you knowing what he did

          • I would assume you would montage all that in for the M. Night like reveal

    Good for her for not letting that sort of thing stand. It’s good for all girls and women to see this.

    • ProjectBlue

      Was thinking that other day. So many people would just let it slide not to have to go to court and go through all that. Good on her.

      • Matt_InGeeked

        Exactly. He probably thought, “I can get away with this. She probably has this happen all the time.”

        Nope….she told someone right away. And now she’s testifying over it. This is great.

        • ProjectBlue

          Even with court and losing his job, he could probably even still consider himself lucky. Do that to the wrong celeb and her bodyguards would have beat the piss out of him

        • The Professor

          plus he thought that he could get away with it because she doesn’t want publicity

          • TatR!

            It’s called Banana Grabber. It’s about a banana that grabs things, or a person that grabs bananas, something like that

    • Had an argument with my boss the other day, as he was saying “Why would this guy grab Taylor Swift’s ass in a photo like that? How stupid does he have to be?” And I was like, “Um, because A) most women wouldn’t do what she did, even the famous ones, and B) he has something he can brag about to his dipshit friends, and he has photographic evidence.”

      My boss didn’t seem to get it

      • Matt_InGeeked

        There is literally zero reason why she would make the claim other than he did it. She didn’t know the guy before the incident. She’s already the most famous current pop star in the world, she doesn’t need the publicity.

        The only explanation is this guy grabbed her ass and she did what any woman should do in the situation.

      • chicagodem79

        Same reasoning why morons run onto the field at sporting events. Dude was lucky he didn’t get a beat down from security like security gives you if you run onto the field at sporting events.

          Ugh, I forgot about that. Wasn’t that part of the reason he left Boardwalk when he did?

          • not sure. I guess he and Emily Clarke have something coming out

          • ProjectBlue

            I’m curious if she can break through. In her favor is she looks a lot different normal vs Dany mode. Han Solo could be a good shot in the arm if it’s a biggish part

      That’s pretty exciting.

    • Matt_InGeeked

  • Devin Harris

    I will say that getting a text from my kid’s teacher seems a bit to personal. I’d like an email or call. I don’t know you like that to be texting.

    • Mikey

      That seems to be a bit much. Like they’re cool with you.

        and it’s easy to get a little too friendly by doing that.

          • Devin Harris

            bruh. Kinda off subject but we had a situation last year where a teacher would let students use her phone and guess what one kid found on it? He ended up failing so guess what happens next

          • TatR!

            What is with this rise in naughty female teachers

          • Devin Harris

            It’s okay to do you but WHY WOULD YOU SAVE A PICTURE OF YOURSELF NAKED ON YOUR PHONE????? It’s yours! You know what you look like naked

          • TatR!

            We all take selfies!

          • Devin Harris

            My face isn’t naked doe! I have a goatee

          • TatR!

            There is probably too many photos of me without a shirt on on my phone but they’re good for monitoring progress!

          • ProjectBlue

            I’d have to guess it just always went on but it became the “big” story to publicize. They stress staying the f out of those situations now more than ever so I don’t get it really.

    • I think we have reached the point where many people forget those things make “telephone calls”

    • ProjectBlue

      True, at least in my district it’s “ask for this” only and we won’t blanket text people. Basically it comes down to we’re desperate to contact parents anyway we can. Many say they don’t have email (maybe but…) or the phone number’s not working or whatever

      • chicagodem79

        Yeah, to me it seems like something in a toolbox. There are too many parents who have too many excuses not to respond to teacher correspondence (my mother has some horrible horror stories from her teaching career)

      • Devin Harris

        Unless it’s an emergency just leave a message or try other numbers. By emergency I mean someone is shooting up the school

        • ProjectBlue

          Depressing though, when you have a kid in the office with a temp and every number is disconnected. But yeah, my district gets too cute with what they deem message-able

          • Devin Harris

            That’s a whole nother problem. Probably one social services needs to handle

    • The Professor

      The texts I would have sent through the app would have been generic ones like “your kid has a test tomorrow”

      • Devin Harris

        Those are fine I suppose but I’d still prefer email or that automated voice message my step children school does.

        • The Professor

          yeah we used to do the automated voice thing but too many kids would get to it first and hang up

          • Devin Harris

            lol. I really don’t have an answer for that

    • Blackjack Jowalsen

      I would be really creeped out too. I NEVER use my personal phone. They don’t need to have my personal phone number and I don’t want to give it.

    “The Hands of Fate” by Taylor Swift

  • The Professor

    I have mainly taught 7th grade where the grades don’t count that much in terms of advancement or school activities.

    This year I am doing 8th grade where grades count for things like dances and graduation. In many ways it is easier to teach because you can hold that stuff over their heads.
    The problem with it is that parents are more on your back. Example: When I last taught 8th grade, I had one parent complain to me 2 days before graduation that she never was notified about her kids failing grade. She just showed up at 7:30 at my classroom door. My response was, “there were 3 previous report cards, 3 grade reports that were sent home that needed to be signed and I sent home several automated messages about it. Her response was “why didn’t you call me personally?” After that, I directed her to the administration/counseling office because my class was about to start.

    • Devin Harris

      Dealing with some parents is the worst part of doing anything kid related (i.e. teaching, coaching, etc.)

      • The Silver Fox

        I’ve done both teaching and coaching.

        • Devin Harris

          so I’m sure when you see certain phone numbers on your caller id you just want to run away and never come back

          • The Silver Fox

            Yes. Though it was not nearly as bad with golf as it would’ve been with baseball, football, basketball or soccer.

    • chicagodem79

      And this sounds like a parent that if you “did” try to call them, they would never answer.

    • ProjectBlue

      It’s obnoxious how admin bends over backwards to keep parents happy too. The right parent getting the right ear can get anything done. Ethical or sane be damned

      • ProjectBlue

        We have a parent at one school that refuses to acknowledge her kid is sped, yet wont let him take any tests or screeners because she “wouldn’t look at those lies anyway”. Meanwhile he’s on a modified spelling program with easier words and a digital site component to practice at home. (he still gets his modified list routinely wrong, 60%-ish on tests). She refuses to use the online site. She bypassed homeroom teacher, sped teacher, and building admin to call the Super directly. He now gets a paper based list that he fails worse every week and literally rips hair out over during test time. “because he can do the same as everyone”

        • chicagodem79

          Wow, that’s sad for a lot of reasons. I can actually empathize with a parent not wanting to believe there’s something wrong with their child on a fundamental level like that….and some school districts are WAY too quick at assigning kids with a learning disability. But with that being said, that stuff makes teachers’ jobs a lot more difficult than need be.

          • ProjectBlue

            Part of it is we had a new special ed coordinator at that building this year. The last one was either more lax or slightly incompetent and made the student appear better off than he was. This one ran an IQ test on him early in the year and he was around 80…so that’s when the mom got combative

          • ProjectBlue

            On the other hand, we have a kid that’s actually top half of his peers but has the longest IEP I’ve ever seen because mom lawyered up and wants every service possible for him. (Even things the district doesn’t actually have staff for). Meanwhile she kinda ignores the daughter who is actually kind of stupid. Parents are the worst.

        • The Professor

          I had a kid several years ago who could barely write a sentence. He was failing all of his classes badly. Math/English was at early elementary school level. However, his mom didn’t want him labeled so no special ed.

          • ProjectBlue

            I get it from a back in my generation thing where it was a rough stigma. But special ed is given out like candy nowadays and makes things so much better for the kid that is truly special ed.

          • The Professor

            To me, they give it out way too much.

          • ProjectBlue

            Yep, big time. My biggest issue is how easy they give out day to day accommodations but then most of them get ripped away on the big tests. How does it help a kid to teach him at 2nd grade levels all year but come test time, here’s your 5th grade test, no help, good luck!

          • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

            Parents see that label as a sign of their own failure. It can be hard to take, especially if it’s their only child.

The next day, he walks in wearing a new cowboy hat. He’d adjourned the meeting early just so he could get to a store to buy a cowboy hat before the shops closed.

      My company had a presentation last year highlighting the change from print/paper to digital. One of the things I did was highlight the technology changes from the 90s to today. It was fun finding old Best Buy ads online with these (at the time) super expensive computers with specs that are laughable today. Just goes to show how far we’ve come in 20 years.

    • Diddly

      LOL I love stories about James Cameron throwing temper tantrums

      • Brolin: if I don’t want to do ‘Avatar,’ I’m not going to do ‘Avatar.’ James
        Cameron’s f—ing calling me this name and that name. Whatever. If James
        Cameron came to me and said, ‘Hey, man, why’d you say that?’ I’d go,
        ‘Because it happened.’”

      • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

        That’s like every Cameron story ever. I do enjoy his undying loyalty to Michael Bien.

    • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

      A Michael Bay movie set is probably more fun because FUCK ACTING AND MOAR EXPLOSIONS.

      Who’s giving me the most money?

    • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

      Bay. He seems like he’d be easier to work for. I mean, Cameron makes great movies, but stories of working for him…wow.

  • Diddly

    I’m pretty sure it was a fake news bit but when Avatar came out I remember reading an article that said James Cameron had the idea for Avatar dating back to like his childhood or something. He saw Star Wars in 1977 and threw a hissy fit because George Lucas stole his idea for Avatar, and he harbored a grudge for 30+ years that was only rescinded when Avatar beat Star Wars in box office receipts

    • That’s fascinating. I have to pee.

    • Marv

      It’s not exactly a new story, it’s just set in space.

    • DAJackson7

      I…did not care for the first Avatar at all….it was visually nice, but offered nothing else. I have no excitement for these sequels

      • Marv

        It was fun to see in IMAX but it was just a gimmick. Unless he has some new filming technology again I think we’ve seen all we’re going to see.

      • Matt_InGeeked

            Oh, so this is a book HE wrote? Well, that’s a horse of a different color!

    Custers Revenge plotline: “In the game, the player controls the character of Custer, depicted as a man wearing nothing but a cavalry hat, boots and a bandana, sporting a visible erection. Custer has to overcome arrow attacks to reach the other side of the screen. His goal is to rape a naked Native American woman tied to a pole.

    In General Retreat, it is the woman who has to overcome various obstacles to rape Custer. Instead of arrows, cannonballs are fired at the woman.”

        Our company slashed our team’s budget (engineering/customer support) because they flew all the salespeople to Thailand for a week in April, and since there was no income for a week the company was briefly in the red.

      Just tell them you’re a teetotaler and don’t feel comfortable around such things.

        • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

          True. I assumed that he would get cornered by someone if he just tried to leave, though.

    • You should go, and be the second person out the door.

    • Dwayne

      I know some that have bottles in their desks or in their office but I’d rather not do it here.

    • Brian_Bayless

      After work sure but no way in hell am I drinking in my office.

    • I used to have a bottle of Jack in my desk and a 12 pack of bottles in a minifridge in a back room

    • Diddly

      As much as I would like to, no. The salespeople here play Flip Cup though.

    • The Professor

      kind of hard to do at my work

    • We need to discuss your diet, dude. It’s not heathy.

      • The Professor

        yeah 2 whole pizzas; come on

      • Diddly

        One of these days he’s just going to sink to the bottom of the pool, and all those pancakes and all that pizza dough will expand and keep him trapped there

    • Got some pork on that pizza, like all good hearted people would?

  • The Professor

    This summer except for the DC trip where I took students with a couple colleagues, I haven’t seen one coworker and only talked to a couple others on the phone.

    • ProjectBlue

      Lovely, isn’t it? Most summers I totally disconnect. It’s a nice break.

      • The Professor

        except for a few colleagues, I just dont want to hang out with them outside of work

        • ProjectBlue

          I have to get working on some new excuses with boys off to college. Used to always say I had to take them somewhere to get out of their drinking nights. (Which, I usually was but still)

          • The Professor

            Last year, I went to a bar with some colleagues a couple times. I never went again because we had nothing to talk about except work.

          • ProjectBlue

            That’s the thing. It’s nice in theory but we inevitably end up bitching about students and family. In a neighborhood bar where there’s decent odds there’s someone connected to our school. Just seems risky. Plus I don’t really drink and the ones that turn out usually drink like fish

          • The Professor

            same. A couple of them had lots to drink. A few were talking about their kids. Some were talking about things at school. yawn

  • I had an old Asian dude take my stroller with my baby in it while I was paying at the grocery store. When I said, “excuse me, please don’t do that,” he waved me off. I had to chase him down and take the stroller away from him.

    I hate people.

      Man, you were way nicer than I would have been.

      • Marv

        Yeah I’d have gone berserk

        • Matt_InGeeked

          Same. Like crazy fuck nuts.

        • What made it worse was the cashier was like, “aww, that’s cute!” I’m gonna switch grocery stores.

          • Matt_InGeeked

            Good choice.

          • RudoWakening

            That’s not fucking okay at all.

          • “No Days Jose” Gomez

            Seriously????

          • “No Days Jose” Gomez

            I would’ve kicked the dude’s ass, then turn to the cashier and say “You think it’s cute now, huh?”

      • I he didn’t move away when I caught up to him, I would’ve put him through a window

        • The Silver Fox

          I likely would’ve sent him to the dentist at the very least.

    • Like.. Completely walk away with it?

      • Marv

        Crazy right? Who the hell wants a baby?

      • Just took the stroller and started walking toward the door

        • I would have made my disapproval quite clear

          • I wasn’t exactly pleasant. I was just restrained. Had he managed to leave the store with her – which is where he seemed to be headed – I would not have been so restrained.

    • What the…. That fucker should have been shot.

      And that’s a totally appropriate reaction, Mahn.

    • “No Days Jose” Gomez

      I would’ve Rocked Bottom him right then and there

    • RudoWakening

      Why the fuck would he think that is an appropriate thing to do?!

    • The Professor

      What do you call people from Guam? Guamish, Guamese, Guamy Bears

      • The Silver Fox

        Guamanian. I wonder how many Trump supporters know that Guam (for that matter American Samoa, U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico) is an American territory.

        • The Professor

          it’s a joke from the critic

          • The Silver Fox

            Haven’t seen The Critic in years.

        • The Professor

          Trump voters or not; I don’t think many americans know that

  • Mikey

    Ahhhhhhh feeling a bit lazy.

  • This week’s cheap heat podcast included an interview with Braun strowman. Dude came off cool and likeable.

  • Marv

    20 minutes later and I’m still chuckling at Brian’s post. That’s one of those behavioral things you never realize until someone points it out. My dad would be so proud lmao

  • The Silver Fox

    Odds Trump’s dangerous nuclear pissing match with Kim is to distract everyone because the Mueller investigation is getting too close to the truth for his comfort.

    • RudoWakening

      Having a nuclear pissing match with a legit crazy person is never a good idea.

      • The Silver Fox

        JFK and Khrushchev they most definitely are not.

    The White Sox have a shot at sweeping the Astros tonight. I am going to watch the game so the ‘Stros will doubtless bat around twice in the 1st.

  • chicagodem79

    Mike Glennon threw an interception on his second pass against Denver lol. Oh man I can smell that #1 overall draft pick!

    • RudoWakening

      I’m choosing to watch the White Sox because I have zero interest in preseason football.

      I am also confident that the Bears will fuck up getting the #1 pick because they’re too incompetent to properly fuck a season and also the Jets are a thing.

      I wouldn’t be surprised if they ended the series at season 3

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    If that GLOW show is so great how come nobody can tell you anything that happens after that one chick’s tits?

    • Ginger Mahal

      Because there’s some very touchy subject matter in later episodes that I don’t wanna talk about?

      • RudoWakening

        Periods probably.

        • Ginger Mahal

          Or lack thereof.

    • Marv

      Nothing happened after those tits.

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        Exactly.

    • Chicks learned how to wrestle, annoying people try and get the show on the air, and people argue.

  • SNL did a weekend update tonight……it was funny

    • ProjectBlue

      They advertise it at all? Seems a weird time to drop

      • I’ve seen commercials for it all week.

      • I don’t watch much network tv so I don’t know I was just…what is my dvr recording …SNL??? and turned it on.. they are doing it again next week

        • ProjectBlue

          True, nor I really, or at least anything that’d get an SNL ad. Come to think of it, I don’t really follow anyone on the show anymore so wouldn’t have gotten it through social media type spots either

          • Hader played The Mooch

          • ProjectBlue

            Fuck, that I’ll have to look up. Love Hader

          • it was good. honestly the whole half hour was solid. I’m impressed those two were DOA when they started weekend update and have become a really solid team. Che still fucks up some but not embarrassingly so like when they started

          • ProjectBlue

            I like Che but I honestly haven’t watched it enough under this regime to see Jost as an even less edgy, more vanilla Seth Meyers (that also oddly gets ScarJo)

          • I like Jost I think he is a more likable person than Meyers..meyers can be very funny but would sometimes just get in a groove of hateful joke after hateful joke that got old to me

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            Che’s stand-up is God tier.

          • He’s funny I’m just saying when he started update he was destractingly reading off cards and then fucking up 40% of the time

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            He could have been. I’m more recommending his stand-up if you get a chance.

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      Yeah. That’s what they do in the off season now. Thursday is now Weekend Update day.

    • ProjectBlue

      “even FDR stood up when he was talking tough”…good stuff so far

  • Wrong site I know but I am to the Prime Time debut of the Islanders….this pleases me.

    • I love these comments, as if I actually give a shit that you say something like this. What I find funnier is that you THINK I care about whether you talk about wresting here, you assume I want nothing to do with it, yet you don’t care enough to respect the imaginary wishes you’ve all made up in your own heads.

      You all can’t even be bothered to show me any kind of respect when you’ve made up your own versions of my rules. I think I should be insulted. Instead, I’ll just not care and go get a full night’s sleep.

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        Atta boy!

        • Oh shut up.

            That’s a sad story. It brings up so many questions. Where’s the other shoe?

          • Dayman Macklin

            Okay so it only brought up one question. But still, imposing question.

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            👟. Here. Now you have a shoe.

          • Are you gonna throw it at him, like he’s W at a press conference?

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            Nah. I got shit aim. That would be a waste of a shoe. This is a peaceful shoe offering.

      • slow your roll homes I do try and respect this site as the place most people have come to talk about stuff not wrestling related. Having said that I don’t feel like I’m breaking any rules but occasionally talking about what I’m doing in life even if it’s wrestling and at this moment I’m watching Prime Time from 86

    • Who’s the third guy? I’ve always wondered that.

      • I don’t know how to answer that Tom selleck was a big star with Magnum PI later was on Friends some recently had a long running show called blue bloods on NBC
        Ted Danson was on cheers, did many movies and things and recently was awesome on season 2 of Fargo

        Steve Guttenberg was huge in the 80s but doesn’t have much career now. He was the star of the early police academy movies, cocoon movies and ….these

        • Yeah, everyone knows Tom Selleck and Ted Danson. I was wondering about the third guy.

          Thanks!

      • The third man turned out to be Hulk Hogan.

  • Marv

    Hi.

  • Dwayne

    I was at the bar and this gay guy was annoying me. I mean, he was talking to me like a drunken dude would be talking to a chick and I had to be rude to him. I wanted to punch him like an annoying person but not cuz he was gay. Lol. I kept cool though and he bothered someone else before leaving.

    • Marv

      I like those guys because you can usually make fun of them to their face and they won’t get it.

      • Dwayne

        He was really extra. He was talking loudly about wanting to lick ass and all kinds of shit like that. I was like yo, fuck outta here you old ass freak.

        • Marv

          Hahaha that’s great

          • Dwayne
