This Week’s Comics – September 13

It’s Wednesday, which is New Comic Book Day, and I consider Wednesday to be the best day of the week.

For a complete list of this week’s releases, remember to check out the Previews website.

I’m purchasing all my books digitally through Comixology, but if you want to find your local comic shop, click here.

After a couple of light weeks in a row, it looks like almost everything I read is being released this week. Let’s take a look at what I’ll be trying to read this week:

Dark Horse Comics

American Gods: Shadows 7

DC Comics

Action Comics 987 – The Mysterious Mr. Oz is revealed! 
Batgirl and the Birds of Prey 14
Dark Knights Metal 2 – Batman discovers a foe more powerful than the Justice League could ever imagine! 
Detective Comics 964
Flash 30
New Super Man 15
Scooby Apocolypse 17
Superwoman 14 – Maxima and Supergirl complicate things for Lana Lang!
Titans 15

IDW

Clue 4

Image Comics

Kill Or Be Killed 12 – Dylan takes on the Russians and the whole city is caught up in the battle.

I decided to finally drop SUPERGIRL after last month’s annual, because I realized halfway through I didn’t care about anything that was happening.

Also of note this week (though not in my pile of books): 

The Harley Quinn 25th Anniversary Special – I can’t believe Harley has been around that long. She is a completely different character than she was when she debuted in 1992.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 8 Omnibus Vol. 1 – Collects the first half of the “Season 8” comics. At $25, it’s a pretty good price for 550+ pages, though the book will be available on Amazon later this month at a much more discounted price. Vol. 2 will be released in March.

  • Today is September 13.

  • I didn’t realize until this morning that the iPhone X preorder wasn’t until next month, and the preorder this week is just the iPhone 8

  • Bsshhh Comics.. this super hero thing is a fad

  • DAJackson7
  • So the second Jon Jones sample came back positive. Well there goes the UFCs other biggest draw for 4 years. What was going to be the greatest career in MMA history is now..the most wasted talent in MMA history

    • ProjectBlue

      I don’t follow it closely but if they said fuck it and just ran with him or cut the suspension down to 30 days or some bs, what would happen? (Guessing a bunch of states would back out of sanctioning?)

      • yeah something like that. They might fidget with stuff a little but they won’t ever say F U to the sanctioning board like that.. and certainly not for a repeat offender like Jones

  • It’s cool that Apple went to the trouble of making sure Ethan Hunt can’t Mission Impossible mask his way into your phone with the face id…..but they did not cover if they have accounted for someone swapping your face with theirs in a Face/Off scenario …. can someone Caster Troy their way into your phone?

    • From my understanding, people may not be able to get into their own phones

      • I mean maybe the tech is faulty but more likely.. I think they probably put a phone out there he wasn’t face IDed into

        • The first round of phones are going to be glitchy. Happens every year

          • So I am guessing 8 and 8 + are the last of the button and not full screen era and after X it will be all X type phones?

          • They may go one more generation with it, to offer a semblance of choice, but the button is not long for this world. Hopefully costs go down eventually.

          • yeah that’s my issue. The new phone seems to give you what you like about apple but bring other elements in line with the competition but…. fuck that price

          • If Apple didn’t hit $1000 for a phone, Samsung would’ve. It was bound to happen.

    • Facts

      If I cut off your face and wear it like in The Silence of the Lambs will that let me break into your phone?

  • “Artistic integrity? Where do you come up with that? You’re not artistic and you have no integrity!”

  • Maybe because this will be the first season where I’m caught up on the shows so the chase is over but I’m not real hype to start watching all the CW show next month.. even though I very much enjoyed last year

    • I’m looking forward to the recaps. Joe is taking Flash and Legends and I’m taking Supergirl and Arrow. And there may be power rankings

  • Anyone know when Strike is coming to HBO? I see they have aired 4 of the 7 eps on BBC already?
    I think JK Rowling has done pretty great with the books and I look forward to the show

    • just watched some trailers.. looks like Tom Burke is prefect for Strike ….which from watching Musketeers I figured he would be

  • Facts

    I want to start reading Star Wars comics

    • Diddly

      They are good for the most part

      • Facts

        Are they post Return of the Jedi or pre?

        • Diddly

          Post ANH, Pre ESB

  • out of curiosity has anyone read The Strike books once it was revealed to be JK Rowling?

    • Facts

      Strike books?

      • Cormoran Strike. They are detective novels Rowling writes under a pseudonym Rowling had no intention of every revealing she was writing them and was happy to write with out the pressure of THE NEXT JK ROWLING NOVEL! even though the book didn’t sell well but some investigator uncovered it as being her through not being able to find the real author, the people being involved with the publishing being associated with her and through writing style analysis.

        There are three of these books. I enjoy them a lot and think she gets better at it with each one. Also the firs three books have been turned into 7 eps of TV currently airing on BBC and will soon be coming to HBO

  • The Professor

    Fell asleep an hour later than normal and now I am all off this morning.

    • that must be nice.

      I feel a sleep an hour later than I had hoped followed by waking up an hour before I wanted and.. this is nothing out of the norm for me

  • DAJackson7

    At least the pirates did something right. their video for next years schedule is amazing.
    https://twitter.com/i/web/status/907639377999925248

  • Wow. Respect to IDW Comics for sticking up for its writers:

    https://www.bleedingcool.com/2017/09/13/gi-joe-comic-book-writer-911-twitterstorm/

    • ehhhh… I mean I’m not going to demand the guy’s head but.. what a stupid ass thing to say on 9/11 … of course that is going to get a lot of blow back and I am of the.. yeah work in the public eye like him and say inflammatory stuff on a public forum..your bosses have the right to fire you.

      I’d be almost more likely to fire him for the Fuck You comment to people giving him grief than the first comment. It also comes off hypocritical to me all these self centered fakes trying to gain sympathy… then he brings up he was there.

      I mean I get it I’m sure people of New york do get annoyed at others around the country and world acting like it was the same for them as the people of new york but that isn’t exactly the way to go about expressing yourself if you aren’t looking for trouble

      • Oh, the writer is an idiot. He’s terribly mediocre and making that tweet was trolling at the most base level. But IDW gets props for not caving to Twitter outrage.

        • but see I would cave based on all the things you just said being the cause of the twitter outrage

          • The man voiced his opinion – it was a dumb opinion and he doubled down on it – but he’s entitled to it. Plus, it’s Twitter outrage, a good chunk of it is people LOOKING for something to be annoyed about and a cause to champion for the 20 minutes that it takes before they see something shiny and get distracted. I’d rather not give these idiots a win, because then they think they can do it over and over.

            Thankfully, these GI Joe series at IDW tend to last no more than a year and a half or two, so he’ll be off the book soon enough anyway.

      • Diddly

        I get the point he was trying to make, but there are MUCH better ways to word it

  • The Professor

    A couple days ago, I signed up for eharmony. Saw all the same faces on the other sites and good friend has had a lot of success on there. I also got a good 3 month deal for it (normal $150 for 6 months) and got it for $50 for 3 months.

    • Facts

      Not bad.

      • The Professor

        yeah the free sites were getting too many of the same faces and too many fake profiles.

        • Facts

          I miss hookups from online dating. It was fun.

    • Diddly

      My buddy paid like $80 for 3 months of Match at the beginning of the summer, and most of it were just the same profiles you see on Tinder (and the same ones who never respond to messages). He never used it again after 2 weeks

      • The Professor

        I’ll give it a try. Friend met a couple girlfriends on there. Seen several new faces

    • RudoWakening

      I met my wife on eHarmony

  • Matt_InGeeked

    Hey guys, still at the in-laws, lost power for only 5 hours on Monday. Our house apparently only lost a couple fence panels and 2 pieces of siding. Overall, we were very lucky. Our county won’t let anyone in that evacuated except for hospital personnel, so I will be attempting to get back to the house today. Haven’t had internet since Sunday and data is slow out here so that’s why I haven’t been on. Anyway, that’s the update.

    • DAJackson7

      Thanks Matt! Good to hear!

    • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

      Glad you’re okay! I’ll try to avoid you when I approach the coast

    • All the best, buddy! Good luck in the coming days!

      • Matt_InGeeked

        Thanks. Clean up shouldn’t be that bad. I’m just so glad we didn’t get flood water.

    • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

      That’s good news.

    • I’m glad that you’re ok. Gilmore Girls sucks.

    • RudoWakening

      Glad to hear you’re okay and safe

  • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

    Watching some play throughs of Marvel vs. Capcom games, starting with X-Men: Children Of The Atom. I think the point the player is trying to make is Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite is gonna suck

  • Facts

    I love reading people’s terrible experiences with online dating.

    • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

      I’ve been on dates by meeting people over the interwebs, but never signed up to a dating site

    • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

      Dating is rough enough, adding an online component doesn’t seem like a good idea.

  • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

    It’s just too easy to lie on the internet. “I’ve been told I resemble Halle Berry!” No, you haven’t. Fred “Rerun” Berry, maybe.

  • Equifax, right? Lots of stolen info.

    • Diddly

      Pretty fucking shady you have to enter 6 digits of your SSN to check if you’ve been hacked

    • Facts

      Did you do it?

  • Marv

    Good to hear Matt’s ok. I worry for cancer though it must be pretty lonely this week.

    • Diddly

      Cute Cancer Chick is probably sitting there all lonely wondering why nobody is taking her picture

    • I fear that cancer may gain a foothold in Georgia if the weekly meeting didn’t take place.

    • I’m concerned if he has been keeping up on his sit ups and staying off the carbs. A full stomached not miserable matt isn’t our matt

  • Diddly

    Here is a picture of the poster of The LEGO Ninjago Movie you can get exclusively at AMC Theaters when you see the film

    http://www.filmoria.co.uk/new-lego-ninjago-movie-poster-features-a-giant-cat/

    • Facts

      AMC Theaters seem to know a thing or two about appealing to Millennials.

      • Diddly

        And those are the Facts

    • Ugh. One of The Boy’s friend’s dads is trying to arrange a date to go to that with a few of the kids.

      • Facts

        …………………A date with kids?

        Call CPS.

      • Diddly

        It will be a fun movie! You should join!

        • Well yeah that’s the idea. Three kids, three dads. So far the other dad and I are resisting but it may happen.

    • DAJackson7

      That cat is what is going to bring in the audience.

  • Devin Harris

    I think the key (at least for me) to online dating was being willing to message or respond back to any and everyone. The option of so much criteria selection has the tendency to make one forsake respectable candidates in search of the perfect candidate.

  • Marv

    My god. My wife has sent me an eleven minute video message. And I’m stuck listening because lord knows she’ll wait until the end to get to whatever I’m supposed to respond to.

    • DAJackson7

      Time to break your phone

    • That seems like a unique brand of torture

      • Marv

        She’s walking through the grocery store by her work.
        “Oh what am I doing I don’t even need a cart lol”

        Why…why the fuck am I watching this…

    • I don’t think I’ve got 1 video message let alone 10_ minute ones

      • Marv

        She’s awful with it. Half my trip she kept sending messages yelling out the n word in the hopes she’d get me in trouble with whoever was nearby

        • Facts

          ……………….no?

        • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

        • yeah you showed me one of those…. it is kind of a good bit though

          • I mean I would have just blocked my wife’s number for the rest of the trip but….good bit

          • Marv

            I mean I won’t lie it had me laughing really hard but it also had me making sure I was alone to listen to her messages haha

          • the kid wasn’t dropping N bombs when you got home was he?

          • Marv

            Nope he was saying “aw chit” a lot though lol

    • I would never watch a video message from anyone. You have a lot of patience.

    • I’m guessing this is not the same type of video that I used to get from the 18 year old.

  • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

    Apollo’s reaction to Paulie’s sex robot is still hilarious.

  • Marv

    Now she’s talking abut my brother and what we’re going to do when they get divorced…

    This just goes on forever as she walks around a grocery store getting coffee this is absurd

    • “hat we’re going to do when they get divorced…”
      “get divorced ourselves if you keep sending me 11 minute long video messages!”

      This seems weird.. she wants completely one sided conversations. Like if she was face timing you and wasting your time that would be one thing and is fairly normal these days but this is something else.

      • Marv

        I like it. It’s a lot easier to ignore when she’s on a small screen. We could have had this “conversation” before she left and I’d have had to pretend to care.

        • It may sound annoying but it really is the preferred option…

          • Marv

            Yeah I don’t mind one-way. The only time I really need her in real time is when I’m in a random hotel in some far off state

        • DAJackson7

          That’s a good point actually…………..i got in trouble last night when Louise was talking for like ten minutes
          Louise “Did you hear what i said?”
          Me “no i quit paying attention when you don’t get to the point in two minutes”

          • See I don’t get in trouble for this because she is worse than me. she can’t listen when looking at her phone so she is apologizing to me 90% of the time while I’m good at faking it

          • Marv

            A lot of times she already knows how I feel so she’ll start the conversation with “Ok I know you don’t give a shit but you’re going to pretend ok? Anyway so…”

  • Marv

    Whew that….was long. And at no point did she say anything I think I’m supposed to respond to..? I just video’d back and told her I hope she has a good day I don’t even

  • Marv

    Anyway I think the point of this morning is that we’d all be better off being thuper gay

    • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

      I’d consider it if not for the anal sex.

      • DAJackson7

        Or the kissing guys

  • Facts

    I think the thing that annoys me the most is being asked about bills/major life things right as I am falling asleep. We had all day to talk about this.

    • Marv

      That’s the time for lots of “mmmhmm’s and uh-huhs”

      Usually its just because they can’t get to sleep when they have shit on their minds.

  • Marv

    Well this is a frightening bit. Trevor Noah is going through the Miss America question portion and pointing out how much better these broads are at communicating issues than our own president lol

    • when is Transformers?

      • Marv

        Well it’s like three hours until nap time so…then lol

    • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

      There was a Last Week with Oliver clip where a contestant was asked on how she would deal with ISIS during Obama’s presidency….her answer was actually better than Obama would’ve done

  • you know what kind of rich person I would not want to be? The Kind of rich person that is having chubby Canadians come out and make 70 year old me bleed from headbutts to try and save my sinking ship.

    • Marv

      …?

      • Vince was on Smackdown last night and to set up the Shane KO match Vince was busted hardway by a KO headbutt

        not how I would spend my 70s with his kind of money

        • probably not how I’ll spend my 70s with my kind of money………unless Blanche leaves me then… yeah I’ll probably send my time having Canadians headbutt me to a bloody pulp for fun

        • Marv

          Sounds tremendously embarrassing. They’re still having his son wrestle all the favorites? LOL the squeal must be intense at the other place

          • It was an ok segment ..everyone over there seemed to love it. I thought it was decent but also sadly desperate. Yeah word is Vince still thinks Shane is one of his top draws because Mania tickets surged when they brought him in two years ago

          • Marv

            Oh I’m sure they liked last night, a favorite stuck it to that awful terrible greatest promoter of all time and guy responsible for all our childhood memories so that’s good. I hate that guy. I can’t wait for him to die so that the guy I like will definitely hold the world title for 10 years.

          • Can’t wait for him to die so that guy I hated throughout my 20s but love now can take over

          • Marv

            I miss nothing about that place lol

          • I can’t speak… I’m watching this women’s tourney for some reason this morning

          • Marv

            Oh shit. So following the trend after this tourney they’ll give the women their own show then everyone will complain about how horrible it is and turn on womens wrestling in general lol

          • I think they basically did that once bringing the horsewomen to the main roster.

          • Marv

            Oh ok whew. For a second I thought something was going to be liked for more than a month lol

          • So far Strowman is the only thing breaking that trend there has not been any Strowman backlash that I’ve seen

          • Marv

            My theory was always that because he didn’t have a bunch of five star matches in NXT already he had zero expectations put on him.

            Like no matter what KO or Zayn do everyone shits on it because it’s not as good as KO vs Zayn

          • Is that worth watching? I watched a couple of matches randomly but that’s it.

            I enjoyed the cwc, but didn’t watch all of the UK tourney. Very Serious Wrestling is hit or miss for me.

          • Is it worth watching that bit? I didn’t watch the show last night.

          • Marv

            Definitely. You’ll want to know what no one is talking about at the water cooler right?

          • More for chatting on the BoD than at work. I don’t really talk about television at work.

          • Miko363

            Wrestling fans are all at the soda machines.

          • I mean it’s right at wwe.com its a fine segment

          • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

            But it’s like, all this for Kevin Owens? I dunno, I guess he’s the best option which is one of the reasons I don’t watch anymore.

    • I’ll be happy to come and headbutt you if I am still living at that time.

    • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

      The further away I am from it, the worse it sounds.

  • Facts

    There are Ninja Turtle ripoffs on this WWE Unreleased 86-95 set. They are called The Toxic Turtles. What a bunch of dorks.

  • The Daily Hollywood Headline Round Up: Morning Edition
    Not much happening so far. Some trailers are out there but of news I’ve seen John Oliver has been renewed for 3 more seasons

    Ellen Page has a zombie movie called cured that’s been picked up by IFC

    USA will premiere Damnation Nov. 7th. This comes from Hellor high Water director David MacKenzie and Logan director James MAngold. I’ll be giving this a try.

    Woody Allen has a movie for next year for Amazon.. Here is a surprise.. star studded cast and a plot that is under wraps.

    With Star Wars ep 9 moving to Dec. 2019 instead of May Disney has also moved other titles around. Guy Ritchie’s Aladdin is taking over the Star Wars May 24th date, Kenneth Branagh’s Artemis Fowl is set for Aug 9th 2019 and finally
    Nicole is moved to Nov 8th 2019. Nicole is Anna Kendrick and Bill Hader’s movie about Kendrick being Santa Claus’ daughter who is being groomed to take over for the big guy. Outrage over a female Santa should be fun

    That the latest yada yada from yadaweird …hopefully WB/DC fall on their face later today for more hehes and hahas

    • Diddly

      Oh man, not just a female Santa, but a SKINNY female Santa?

      • Marv

        I hope she wears one of those slutty santa costumes from one of those Halloween stores that are only around for two months then the building becomes a bingo

        • things are classy out in your era.. they sell fireworks around here most of the rest of the year. they might be empty for awhile but that april through Sept period …..CRAZY JIMMY FIREWORK EXTRAVAGANZA

          • Marv

            Yeah I saw more fireworks stores than I knew what to do with on that trip. I had no clue they were such a big thing everywhere else. The northwest just doesn’t seem to care I guess. Well, and in the summer our forests tend to make the whole world warmer.

          • It’s terrible you start hearing them at night like 3 weeks before memorial day and then for about 2 weeks after the 4th

      • The Skinny Washing of Hollywood. Why Hollywood still is wrong with their female Santa movie.

    • If you type the word Trailer one more time…

  • Also. you can listen to the score for the new star trek show coming to CBS all access or whatever it’s called here

    • Facts

      Star Trek Discovery starring a woman.

  • You’re all banned!

  • chicagodem79

    So I just watched that KO/Vince McMahon segment. Gotta hand it to the old dude, he’s still willing to take a shitkicking even at 72 years old lol.

    • Marv

      Too bad KO didn’t kill him so that Guy X could finally get a real push

      • chicagodem79

        LOL, I have no doubt there was some of that in there. Good thing I have my moronic comment filters in place when I do go over there.

    • So I’m like… yeah that the 72 year old rich guy either can’t give up the business or has booked himself into desperate stunts like 72 year old man concussions isn’t something to applaud

      • chicagodem79

        For better or for worse, that’s Vince, He’ll always be a carny. I’m more amazed that he’s still willing to do this stuff at his age.

        • Well I’ll be less amazed when he’s a veggie sooner than later

          • chicagodem79

            He probably wouldn’t have it any other way.

    • Miko363

      Vince is like Bear Bryant, he’ll die of a stroke or heart attack within a month of retiring/getting pushed out because his life is nothing else besides wrestling.

      • chicagodem79

        Yeah I totally believe that. I honestly think, the question is whether he’ll die actually during a live event or not.

        • Miko363

          I was worried that was gonna happen last night. I absolutely believe he told KO he better make that headbutt look good. At least they knew he couldn’t take a pop-up powerbomb.

  • So how about those new comic books?

    • Marv

      I don’t know I always wait a year or so and make sure the storyline is terrible before buying.

      Contagion by the way is just dreadful stuff. I’d forgotten that the major story is really all the Batfriends running around tracking down former survivors of the virus just for them to die in ridiculous ways. One guy kills himself in front of Azrael and Catwoman because he thinks because he survived ebola he’s immortal. Oh it’s so bad.

  • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

    I wonder if Sly told Carl Weathers about the robot beforehand, because he had the look of a guy who had no idea what was happening.

  • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

    And they never really dealt with Paulie’s outright racism in III, do they? That was odd.

    • aw he’s the lovable racist drunk uncle

      • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

        I mean, once he stops dropping semi-casual hints and says flat out “I don’t like these people”, well, it feels like something that SHOULD be addressed. But no, he just gets shoved into a pool and everything’s fine…I guess.

        • he said these people.. not THOSE people

        • Miko363

          You’ve got it all wrong, guys…Paulie was talking about former WCW Champions…that’s all he meant!

  • It’s interesting things have slowed here and there the last couple weeks

    • Miko363

      Hot take: The Kenny/Friendship saga kinda put a damper on this place for a few weeks.

      • Marv

        Everything felt like it was going well until the worst parts of the old place invaded basically. Between Friendship proving to be a legit mental case and PK getting images killed it was kind of a shitty time.

    • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

      Fall premiere week should pick things up.

    • Diddly

      Things are down EVERYWHERE that I post. Nobody is sure what it is

      • DAJackson7

        The internet has ran it’s course….time to go back to books

  • Marv

    Alright I’m going to start Transformers at 9:15 my time

    • ProjectBlue

      Hm, will have to scroll through the carnage later. Paraphrasing but: “Remember that crazy thing that we would always thought would happen? It’s happening!”

  • Brian_Bayless

    Cleveland Indians going for their 21st win in a row. Even more impressive is that they’ve only trailed for four innings during this streak.

    • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

      Wow, baseball!

      *goes back to staring off into space*

    • DAJackson7

      Is the Giants record legit since one is a tie? Sure why not

    The trailer for the Breaking Kayfabe with Teddy Hart interview. He talks about selling cats out of a whore house he was running.

    • DAJackson7

      That boy ain’t right

    • wow……20 seconds in to that I had to turn it off.. and back away

    • Tranquilo Baby Tranquilo

      Seriously, I have listened to far too may deranged teddy hart interviews. He’s one step above vampiro in his insanity.

          • Kenny shouldn’t be giving away secrets like that

    Seventy-two year old Vince taking bumps.

    That’s just sad.

    • Tranquilo Baby Tranquilo

      How so?

      • 72 year old men should not be agreeing to brain trauma situations

        • Tranquilo Baby Tranquilo

          Was probably his idea.

          • Marv

            Right that’s why it’s sad.

          • yeah no I didn’t assume someone forced him into it… doesn’t change what Grampa said

          • Tranquilo Baby Tranquilo

            I haven’t seen the bump, but I’m going to assume it was somewhat safer than vader powerbombing cactus on concrete.

          • well ok if that is your bar of what should or shouldn’t be done to 72 year old men… then ok

    • ProjectBlue

      Eh, from a “Wow, he thinks he has to do it” case, I agree. but from a “you know, he’s dying like he lived, crazy” I’m kinda ok with it.

      • Marv

        At this point he’s probably as fucked up from all the CTE as anyone else. I’m trying to imagine his grandkids watching the old man get beat up for funsies and what a horrible reality growing up in this family must be.

        • still… you can hang out at the white house

          • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

            But that place is a real dump according to the President!

        • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

          And for what? I mean, if it was Wrestlemania maybe I could understand it, but for a B show no one’s gonna watch anyway?

          • I’ve been saying it over there I think they are in panic mode. I’m guessing the numbers aren’t good and with football season starting they are worried about the next shareholder meeting so they are hot shotting all these big matches on live tv and B level PPVs

          • DAJackson7

            Makes sense, it just seemed desperate. I kinda figured the powerbomb was coming to really sell it. What really gets me is that people should boooo the ever loving shit out of Vince. Yeah, he did make it popular but now he makes everything shitty. Booo the crap out of him, he’s like Henry Ford still trying to sell Model T’s when everyone else once something new and exciting.

          • I’m gonna watch. I’m still watching all the PPVs.

          • Me too. They are mostly fun.

    • It’s his company, I don’t think he’s doing it for any reason other than he wants to.

      • chicagodem79

        Pretty much, his company is his life, and it’s the choice he’s made to make his life happy, I find it kind of weird, but that’s my own biases coming in. More power to him.

    • I dug it.

  • Tranquilo Baby Tranquilo

    I was reading man of steel vol 9 last night. I finished up the 3 issue intro of Supergirl and I was shocked at how fast it wrapped itself up. They spent about 4 issues dropping a page here or there about her coming to earth and meeting up with the kents. Then she meets up with Supes in the first issue, heads for alterna earth in the second issue, then the third issue seems to jump well ahead in the story and comes to a conclusion in an incredibly quick fashion. I actually stopped reading and thought, that was odd. Then I looked up Byrne’s superman run and saw that this was the last issue. Which makes me pretty confident that this was supposed to go on much longer, but Byrne got into some sort of fight with editorial and was told he was no longer going to be working there.

      • DAJackson7

        As early as I go to bed, start times like that are great.

    • Well, see, they’re playing now. That’s why it’s on now. Most people don’t care for tape delayed sports.

      • DAJackson7

        12 EST is just an odd start time

        • Yes. But that’s not what you said.

          Aside from the Cubs, Wednesdays and Thursdays are typically the only weekdays with day games, but you’ll usually see at least a couple noon(ish) start times each of those days. Getaway days. If one or both teams are playing elsewhere on Thursday, they travel after the game on Wednesday. Same for Thursday day games, of course, since everyone plays Friday.

    This Bodega startup is the dumbest fucking idea I’ve heard from silicon valley in a long time.

  • DAJackson7

    Uhhhh. what?????
    “In the non-canon Dark Horse Comics series Into The Unknown, Han and Chewbacca accidentally make their way to Earth, where they crash land in the Pacific Northwest. There, they are found by Native Americans, and things don’t go so well for the iconic duo. While Chewbacca manages to escape the indigenous gang, unfortunately, Han is killed.

    Flash forward a 100 years or so, and in comes Indiana Jones, who discovers Han’s remains. In fact, the legendary explorer only finds his lookalike’s bones because he’s on the hunt for the legendary Sasquatch (who turns out to be Chewbacca!).”

    The big dress code battle was always between conservative old women and young girls just entering the job force. I’m not sure why old women cared how the younger women dressed but it was a thing. On the flip side I’m not sure why young girls dressed for work like they were on their way to the club. Seems like both sides could have found a happy middle ground.

        I can’t say as I watched the cartoon much. I loved the toys but only watched the show a few times.

    • ProjectBlue

      That’s one of my favorite parts when you find out who the magician is

      • Ooh, I HOPE it’s Cobra Commander! Or maybe Zartan…

        • The Silver Fox

          Doctor Mindbender

        • ProjectBlue

          Stanley Tucci. He played a big-ish role in the previous movie. He’s Merlin in this with no relation whatsoever to the last movie’s character

  • Marv

    While Lancelot and his men complain Merlin goes off to a cave and finds a big red something or other

  • Marv

    The big red thing gives Merlin a staff and then turns into a robot dragon? Or something? I have no idea what the fuck is going on BUT I will say Bay does direct a hell of a medieval fight scene this is great visually

  • Marv

    Then it cuts to Optimus and he’s floating all dead in space but his voice is playing a message or something…

    I guess he left at the end of the last movie? Damn it I knew the story would get me confused

  • Marv

    Apparently the Transformers have been declared illegal on earth. Except in Cuba.

    lolwat

  • The Silver Fox

    Movie that I haven’t watched in years but remember enjoying is Darkman.

  • Marv

    These kids go into a football stadium where there was a Transformer fight in a previous movie. Then a robot from Homeland Security shows up and tells them they’re in a restricted area and to surrender and leave.

    Then a girl pops up out of nowhere and attacks this robot then leads the kids into a hiding spot in the rubble.

    Like…just surrender. I mean they were just snooping around wtf

    • ProjectBlue

      They set the kids up like they’d be the movie….nope, this is about it for them

      • Marv

        I can’t figure out what this is even supposed to be about. It’s a restricted area there’s no reason for this girl to be staying and to be all angry and to have a pet robot

        WTF IS GOING ON

        • ProjectBlue

          It’s amazing isn’t it? This is the grounded beginning, it gets weirder

  • Matt_InGeeked

    I’m watching 30 for 30 and drinking.

  • Marv

    “Wake up Canopy I’m not leaving you.”

    Lol this poor girl has to sell this line like it’s serious.

    And now Marky Mark is here to fight the Homeland Security robots? LOLWAT

  • RudoWakening

    **makes sure Hoss isn’t around**

    Gonna eat some ice cream now

    • Tranquilo Baby Tranquilo

      Hoss approved.

  • I kind of want to watch this Transformers movie now.

    • The Silver Fox

      The 1986 animated movie is the only Transformers movie I’ve seen.

    • Marv

      It’s already horrendous.

  • Tranquilo Baby Tranquilo

    I’m a big fan of Number of the Beast, Powerslave and Somewhere In Time. I’ve owned the other two albums from that period but have been unable to get into them though.

  • Marv

    Marky Mark is apparently running all over this area helping any injured Transformers. I thought this battle took place a long time ago since there are already laws and stuff and other robots are hanging out in Cuba eating tacos (for real that happened)

  • Matt_InGeeked

    #Marvwatch I see.

    • Marv

      I am also drinking!

      • Matt_InGeeked

        I mean, you’re watching Transformers. I assumed that was the case.

  • Matt_InGeeked

    Shaq wanted Penny because he passed him the ball a lot while filming Blue Chips. Lol

  • Marv

    There a scene with Marky Mark and the whole army and Bumblebee breaking into pieces on purpose and fifty explosions or whatever…

    I *think* the point was to explain to us that now all the Transformers want is a home and America/Earth is being a big dick about it

  • Marv

    This bad guy robot has a pair of brass knucks that say PUNISH on them

    I don’t know if I’m going to make it lol

    • ProjectBlue

      ohhhhhhh, wait til Megatron’s group recruiting at least

    • This movie sounds amazing. I may do a Transformers marathon this weekend!

  • The Silver Fox

    I’m not sure there’s a better opening track to side 2 of an album than Powderfinger on Neil Young’s Rust Never Sleeps.

  • I think I’m gonna apply to be a contestant on the match game.

  • Marv

    Prime is back on…wherever I already forgot the name of their planet…and he meets Quintessa the Prime of Life

    Prime’s voice is pure shit by the way he sounds nothing like he did in the cartoon or any of the previous movies

  • Marv

    Oh my god they dragged poor Anthony Hopkins into this wtf

    • I hope they dropped a Brinks trunk filled with cash on his lawn.

    • ProjectBlue

      He seems like he has the time of his life. Yells at someone “get out of the way, fatass” at one point

      • Marv

        I always like when big names come in and do their own thing. Like Jack during Batman 89 lol he just did whatever he wanted and told Burton to eat his balls

        • ProjectBlue

          Ever hear what Brando would do to Frank Oz on The Score? Just totally brutal. Miss Piggy shit all the time, “you don’t have your hand up my ass” nonsense

          • On the set of Superman, Brando suggested that Jor-El be a bagel or a suitcase, so he didn’t have to be on set. “They’re aliens, who’s to say they don’t look like a bagel?”

          • Tranquilo Baby Tranquilo

            The whole story of Island of Dr Moreau is legendary. Theres a documentary on Netflix that is a must see.

          • Oh, that was pretty mental.

        • That’s a move I wish more people in Hollywood would make.

          Not doing their own thing, just telling Tim Burton to eat their balls.

        • RudoWakening

          And he was FUCKING AWESOME. Trashing the museum to “Partyman” is one of my favourite scenes ever

          • The Silver Fox

            Gentleman! Let’s broaden our minds.

  • Take a look at the cast list for the Transformers movie Marv is watching and see how far down you have to go to find the voice credits for any of the Transformers.

  • The Silver Fox

    Didn’t the animated Transformers movie have one of Orson Welles’ final performances?

    • Yup, if not his final performance.

    • RudoWakening

      It had Casey Casem as well

      • Judd Nelson, Leonard Nemoy and Robert Stack, too. And the fast-talking guy from the Micro Machines commercials.

      • The Silver Fox

        It took me a long time to realize that the voice of Shaggy on Scooby Doo was the same person as the host of American Top 40.

        • The Professor

          shaggy’s long distance dedication didn’t do it for you?

  • Marv

    There have been a number of scenes. I have not commented on them because I don’t really know what any of them were about. Robots are talking in junkyards and Prime now has to get a staff some robot gave to Merlin in 640 or some shit so he can save the robot home planet and there’s a dinosaur eating cars in the junkyard just to be cheeky while Marky Mark admonishes him

    This is all dreadful

    • ProjectBlue

      Wait til they rip off C3PO but then it’s cool because they say “this guy is like C3PO”

  • Marv

    Poor Marky Mark. He’s just left to his own devices too much. He can fucking act. He’s Oscar worthy in Boogie Nights for god’s sake. PTA is a super hands on director though and fed him every line and facial expression.

    My god there’s a robot with a big bag of garbage on his back…and a robot voiced by John Goodman that smokes a robot cigar and wears a helmet and acts like Patton

  • Marv

    Dumb robot: “Oh you got a talisman of juju beans that can’t be real that’s crazy.”
    Marky Mark: “Hey I don’t know what it is but I know it must be worth something because you’ve got your eye on it you skank!”

  • Marv

    There are baby dinosaur robots? And they’re living in Marky Mark’s house?

    • What… the fuck…

      • Marv

        They do a two minute comedy relief scene with them burping fire and Marky Mark running around his house stopping them

  • Marv

    I don’t think I should keep watching this if Ferrari’s really going to watch this I might spoil things and that’s no fun I should definitely turn it off

  • RudoWakening

    I’m still holding out for the Donnie Wahlberg GoBots movie

  • The Professor

    If you guys ever watch who wants to be a millionaire, tomorrow a good friend of mine will be the contestant.

    • Marv

      Are you a lifeline?

      • Phone-a-Professor

        • The Professor

          my friend did say that I should try out. I have been on beat the geeks and 1 vs 100. I was also on a couple potential pilots that never made it to air.
          I was thisclose to being on millionaire when I was in college, are you smarter than a 5th grader (came down between me and 2 others including a friend of mine who won 500k), and 500 questions.

          • YOU WERE ON BEAT THE GEEKS?!?!?!?!

            I used to love that show.

          • The Professor

            I did the best of the 3 contestants but lost to the geek (had a chance to win though but never saw the movie). Contestant coordinators liked me so they asked me to be on those pilots and a couple game show network shows but not cup of tea.

          • The Professor

            I was also asked to be a judge on child geniuses but declined since I would have to be away from work for a few weeks. Recommended a female friend who is a lot better looking and telegenic and she did great

      • The Professor

        unfortunately no

  • Tranquilo Baby Tranquilo

    Where does the animated GIJoe movie fall on the Transformers/GIJoe movie spectrum?

    • The ending where they chickened out because of the reaction to Transformers hurts it. Also… spores.

      • Tranquilo Baby Tranquilo

        I don’t get why a terrorist organization all of a sudden became weird secret mutants. The two five-parters that they did (weather-machine, serpentor) were so much better.

  • Marv

    There’s some kind of evil power or monster or something that’s coming to Earth so the US Army is making a deal with Megatron in the desert. Like they have tables and stuff out in the desert for lawyers to sit at while Megatron stands over them.

    Megatron says he’ll whatever if they release his crew then they introduce every member MOHAWK! with introductory clips with pop up graphics just like Suicide Squad.

    Lawd god up above this is the worst movie I’ve seen in quite awhile

    • Good to see that the army and the rowbits have to sit down and have a WWE-esque contract signing.

      • Marv

        You know this whole franchise is very WWE-like in that the quality of writing and direction is toddler level but it’s also full of cussing and sex because “it’s totally for adults”

        • Then it’s very fitting that the top guy is John Mark Cenaberg.

          • ProjectBlue

            And Cena’s in the Bumblebee spin off, it’s all related!

          • I’m down for that if and only if they have Cena’s character just be John Cena the WWE character.

          • ProjectBlue

            I’m just assuming he’s low rent Marky Marking it up for what’s-her-name from True Grit, Hailee Somethingorother

        • Plus, a chunk of the audience are people who used to love watching it in the 1980s…

          • And do nothing but complain about the direction of the modern product.

            Wow…

          • Marv

            Seeeeeeeeee? I’m smart not like everyone says

    • Did they copy the Wayne’s World soundtrack, too?

  • Marv

    I’m tapping out. Some stuff happened and people talked or whatever and I’m just not giving a shit anymore

  • The Professor

    If you guys won $1million on a game show (assume after taxes), what would you do with the money

    • LOTS of Superman stuff.

    • Marv

      $900,000 of it would go into investments and then a few dumb vacations and a down payment on a condo

      • The Professor

        pretty much the same for me.
        Pay off my car. Do a nice vacation and then buy a nice condo (500k is for a 2+2 in my current building).

      • I’d have about a quarter of the down payment for a condo in Manhattan…

    • ProjectBlue

      Pay off mortgage, look into some type of annuity, try to remind myself every day that a million won’t last long if I tell my admins when I think of them.

      • ProjectBlue

        …what….would be creepy if I tell them when

    • I’m buying a Smart car and paying for Mrs. Ceaucescu’s transition.

      The rest probably goes in the bank.

      • RudoWakening

        I feel like I’ve missed something as regards the second half of the first sentence

        • Mrs. Ceaucescu is a pre-op trans woman.

          I would like to help her change that status.

          • RudoWakening

            Oh word! How did I not know this until now?!

          • Well, I’ve mentioned it before, but I don’t try to bring specific attention to it. I just talk about it like anyone else here talks about their relationships.

            But it does put an…interesting…spin on things.

    • Tranquilo Baby Tranquilo

      I would buy a million dollars worth of mcdonalds cheeseburgers and put all the patties on one roll.

    • I’ve got 250k left on my mortgage. Pay that. Outright blow probably 50 grand on travel and parties and things.

      700k in the bank.

      • At the end of the day I might even blow 100k.

        I’d probably sell this house in truth and move to a cheaper area and take some brokers job for 40k a year. With no mortgage, and many hundreds of thousands in the bank, I’d live pretty good on that.

    • RudoWakening

      Tacos

  • The Professor

    My friend who won 500k (300k after taxes) on 5th grader bought a cell phone store. Went out of business within 2 years

  • Marv

    A million would get me like a month of too much driving

    • But you’d probably be able to afford a WAAAAY better rental car.

      • Marv

        That’s true. A million I’d rent a winnie and take the whole fame for a summer

        • …I see no possible way that would end poorly.

          • Marv

            I could definitely see it in a few years.

          • RudoWakening

            A Winnie? And the family? YOU’RE GOING TO STEAL XANNIE, AREN’T YOU!

          • And possibly the FerrarWee

  • “Earth is revealed to be the planet-eating Transformer Unicron.”

    Wait… what…?

    • Marv

      Lol yeah dude I had to tap I couldn’t do it alone

      • ProjectBlue

        So it gets crazier from there. There’s a cult of Transformer protectors now led by Hopkins. Shia was one of them, Tuturro trades info for membership because for some reason he wants to be a member (never leaves the Cuba locale). Buster Bluth is a super science guy who is disappointed everyone lives at the end because his science was wrong but the Transformer way was right. The girl disappears for most of the movie only to come back at the end only to realize she shouldn’t be there. They beat the chick-god-whatever but she comes back at the end teasing waking up unicron

        • Marv

          Booooooooo at all that lol

    • ProjectBlue

      Clifffffffffhanger.

      • What about the Autobot Cliffjumper? Is he in this?

        • ProjectBlue

          Honestly other than Bumblebee, they all look the same to me fighting, so…maybe?

  • The Silver Fox

    Didn’t Casey Kasem leave Transformers due to a storyline in the post movie Transformers season?

    • “The president of the fictional country Carbombya, Abdul Fakkadi, appears in The Transformers: Five Faces of Darkness: Part 1 (1986) and The Transformers: Thief in the Night (1986). The character/story and was meant to be a parody of Middle East tensions at the time. His name is an anagram of Libyan President Muammar Gadaffi. The name of Fakkadi’s country, Carbombya, also contains an in-joke (Car Bomb Ya). Reportedly, voice actor Casey Kasem, who is of Arab descent, objected to this, and quit the Transformers series as a result.”

      • I don’t think the writer of this “trivia” understands what an anagram is…

        • The Silver Fox

          Didn’t help that Gaddafi’s last name had a number of different spellings.

          • “Margaret, please call the editor of the New York Times crossword and tell him that Khaddafi is spelled with an H and two D’s and isn’t a seven-letter word for anything.”

  • Marv

    That movie was like two hours and twenty minutes long too, I barely made it like 50 minutes

  • Party bus picked us up at the office at 4 and we had booze on the drive to the Warner Brothers screening room uptown. Had pizza and beer in the lounge and then watched Dunkirk.

    It was fine.

    • ProjectBlue

      Seems a weird choice for a party bus and booze watching. Though there’s not much popcorn-y movies out now I guess

      • Yeah, a few of us commented on that. I don’t know how the picture is decided on. I had nothing to do with booking it.

  • Tranquilo Baby Tranquilo

    Lost Soul: The Doomed Journey of Richard Stanley’s Island of Dr Moreau. Its amazing. Both directors, both stars all fucking hated each other. Its a must watch.

  • finished American Gods season 1. very good show. also a show very sure of themselves and not desperate over play their hand to finish the season

  • Matt_InGeeked

    World War II In Colour and bourbon. What a combo.

    • Matt_InGeeked

      Feel like a manly man.

      • RudoWakening

        Rightfully so!

    • I should watch that

      • Matt_InGeeked

        It’s great. I’ve seen it 3 times. It’s on Netflix.

  • The Silver Fox

    Scatman Crothers was one of those voices that I always recognized. Whether it was cartoons like Hong Kong Phooey or the cartoon version of Meadowlark Lemon of the Harlem Globtrotters or movies like Silver Streak or The Shining.

    I’m going to run down to the bar here and have a drink and pretend to have a life before the fam comes home lol

  • ProjectBlue

    Hm, Faraci “quitting” again because of backlash. Wonder how long this one lasts this time

  • Trump makes another deal with Schumer and Pelosi on DACA legislation.

    • The Professor

      I thought he hated daca

      • But he loves the Dreamers.

        Mostly, his problem seems to be that DACA was an executive order, and he wanted it done through Congress. So, he rescinded the executive order and urged Congress to pass similar legislation. And apparently, he’s working with the Democrats now.

        • ProjectBlue

          But whose side is he on!

          • No one knows at this point…

          • Whatever side is willing to tell him what a great job he’s doing so they can get their ideas passed.

        • chicagodem79

          Pretty rich for a guy who has done nothing but executive orders…

          I gotta admit, the thought of Trump turning on the GOP makes me giddy lol, but I doubt it.

          • The Professor

            if he does do that, goodbye second term

          • chicagodem79

            I honestly don’t think he cares, he probably doesn’t want to do this more than one term anyway….if he even makes it to the end of the term.

          • I don’t think that’s true. I think if he keeps working with the Dems to get legislation passed, and shows a level of bipartisanism, I think he CEMENTS his second term, because the Dems will see that it’s easier to work with him and won’t put up a fight.

            Saving DACA is HUGE for him. That’s a lot of minority votes that could possibly swing his way.

          • The Professor

            but then you have stuff like what jemele hill says calling him a racist bigot so which one is it?

          • That stuff’s not going to go away. It never does for Republicans, but it also helps with their base of jackasses who want to believe that it’s true.

          • chicagodem79

            He’s desperate to get “something” done. The Obamacare repeal and replace failure really stung him, and he doesn’t want to be seen as getting nothing done via Congress.

          • Unless he gets primaried.

          • He won’t lose a primary. The rest of the GOP are still stooges.

          • chicagodem79

            Eh I don’t know, depends on how angry these people get at the compromises. I doubt he’ll do enough to go that far, but these people aren’t rational either….

          • Oh, I didn’t mean HIS stooges, just jokes in general. He’s made most of them out to be sycophants and toadies in the last 7 months. He’d be able to rip them apart in a debate.

          • I think that’s more of a problem for the Dems than the GOP.

            For whatever reason, and whatever you think of their policies, the Republican Party is REALLY good at the machinations of politics.

          • I just think Trump has already proven he’s better at playing the game than they are. Also, I don’t see anyone in the GOP who would be able to run a decent campaign against Trump. You’ll get the same morons from last time, with maybe one or two new faces and they’ll end up humiliated again with nicknames and sound bites

          • RUSSO SWERVE~!

            Hillary will change parties and promise to primary Trump out and get revenge on the Democrats on her way to the White House in 2020.

          • Seriously, kill me now.

          • chicagodem79

            This makes me weep.

          • What’s odd is that I definitely don’t think she’s above this if you told her it would get her the presidency.

          • chicagodem79

            That is EXACTLY why I weep hearing that lol….because I think that’s not totally implausible.

          • chicagodem79

            Which is a real possibility. Despite the MAGA craze, there are a lot of Republicans, especially in the mainstream who don’t trust him one bit.

          • I don’t think he’s turning on the GOP, but he’s definitely decided that Paul Ryan and McConnell are useless, so he’s working with Schumer and Pelosi, because he has no use for the other two. He even praised a North Dakota Democrat the other day. He’s trying to make a point to the GOP: Do what I want or I will cut you.

          • chicagodem79

            Which even ups the previously held suspicion by many on that side that he’s a fake Republican anyway. It’s quite a fascinating dynamic actually.

  • Marv

    Been thinking a lot about the front desk guy at the hotel in Montgomery. He was an old black dude with white puffs of beard, basically he looked like Chapelle when he’d dress up as an old man. He called me boss and shucked and jived through the whole transaction and I felt both really embarrassed and bad for him.

    • Marv

      Basically the south really weirded me the fuck out and I still can’t process all that lol

    Anyway they’re home I’ll explain all that later I swear I’m not crazy lol

  • The Professor

    One problem with not working with his party is if he works too much with democrats, gop voters will stay home and say “why should I vote republican? when we have all the branches of government and nothing gets passed by our party, why should I vote?”

  • I just read the wiki entry for Dunkirk and there were huge parts of the movie that I didn’t get. Throughout the whole thing pretty much every solder looked exactly the same to me so I wasn’t aware of when specific ones died and stuff.

    • I also didn’t get that the three stories took place over different time frames, but that does make sense.

    Embattled radio host

    Craig Carton

    has resigned from WFAN, a week after he was arrested for his alleged involvement in a fake ticket scheme.

    Carton announced his decision Wednesday night in a statement released
    by his publicist to NJ Advance Media, saying the “unfounded legal issues
    currently plaguing me” would be a distraction to the “Boomer and
    Carton” show and the station.

    …”unfounded”

    ..I wonder why quit and not just wait for the firing.

  • The Professor

    So I talked with someone from eharmony for the last day or so. I politely said that this wont work and good luck. She asked why and I responded very politely the reason basically I love to travel and she doesn’t (her last trip was 3 years ago to vegas); I also could have said that she looks 10 years older than her age.

    Then I got this message, “I must admit that I didn’t get my hopes up for this working out this time since it hasn’t the past two times we’ve talked. I just thought it was really funny that three different sites have matched us up.”

    I am thinking that she should just shut up. I don’t remember her at all the 2 previous times.

      Her writing “4th time’s the charm” in blood on your windshield tomorrow morning should seal the deal

    • Yeah, I wouldn’t respond to that.

  • Fans at today’s Athletics-Red Sox game unfurled a banner that said Racism is as American as Baseball over the Monster.

    Boston is great.

    • The Professor

      yes it is. We have been talking about tea party and massacre all week in class

      • I’m just wondering if they were praising racism or bashing baseball…

        • Marv

          Yeah I don’t get it lol

    • ProjectBlue

      “we just meant baseball is unamerican, damn bastardized cricket”

    • …I don’t know what message that’s supposed to get across.

      • From the NYDN story: “It wasn’t clear exactly what message the fans were attempting to share, although the distraction nevertheless had them removed from the stadium.

        “It’s also unclear as to how they managed to get that monstrosity to the Green Monster.”

    • Jesus, terrible umpire “Cowboy” Joe West was the one who had police remove the fans with the banner. Wouldn’t have called that one…

      • The Professor

        “what about their freedom of speech?”

        • People really need to pay more attention to their government classes in high school.

          • The Professor

            that’s taken as a senior and many kids dont make it that far

          • Also:

            The Red Sox released a statement later in the night that read as follows:

            “During the 4th inning of tonight’s game, four fans unfurled a banner over the left field wall in violation of the club’s policy prohibiting signs of any kind to be hung or affixed to the ballpark. The individuals involved were escorted out of Fenway Park.”

    • “One of the four individuals involved told Red Sox security they were inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement.”

      • Marv

        lol what does that meeeeeaaaaan

    • So are they pro racism?

      • The Professor

        or pro american

      • We don’t know. Maybe?

      • Marv

        Or anti-baseball?

        And which is worse?

  • Marv

    Alright the kid is asleep here’s to the idea of making that last until morning.

    The south is just too weird that’s the thing

    • It gets less weird as you stay here longer.

      It’s like kudzu, it’ll just kinda choke out everything around it and assimilates it.

      • Marv

        Well yeah people acclimate to prison too.

  • Mike Mears

    I wonder how thrilled Matilda would be if I got day drunk and played Golden Tee tomorrow afternoon.

    • Marv

      I’m sure she’d be deeply pleased.

    • Fuck is that game still around? I played a lot of that.

      • It’s just the best.

        Especially if you can master the karate chop technique.

      • Mike Mears

        I’ve played enough that if I had back every dollar I spent on it, I could afford my own machine.

  • Marv

    I’m going to lunch with my brother tomorrow so we can talk. I don’t know why we have to talk. I have exactly zero experience with divorce. I also basically have zero experience talking to my brother.

    • Maybe he just wants you to pay for his lunch…

      • Marv

        Oh god I hope so that would be great. If he just sat down with headphones and listening to a podcast while I paid for lunch that would be THE BEST!

        I really don’t feel like talking if it’s not alcohol fueled, lunch is a weird time for dudes to talk

        • Just sit, tell him it’s on you and put your own headphones on. He should get the hint.

          If he actually WANTS to talk, just reference The Casual Geekery with every reply.

          Well, over at the Geekery, they say…

          • Marv

            No one likes that by the way hahahaha, no one likes “well when I was in Queens with my friends from that forum” lol

          • ??

            Why not?!?!

          • And who is no one?

            I’m trying build something here! Do they have no respect for that?!?

          • Marv

            A few of my crowd find the idea of knowing people around the country very weird. What they don’t know is I find them weird for being my friends.

          • No one I know bats an eye at that… Of course, I’ve barely spoken with any of my friends since February… Joe was cool with it…

            I need more friends.

          • Marv

            My brother did actually tell me about this he said they come back 25% at a time and so far in my own experience he’s right. Friends fall to 0% from birth-one and then come up again 25% at a time every year after. No one really liked my kid/situation when he was a baby but now even my weirdest buddies are kind of forced to like him because he gets up in their shit and talks to them and stuff.

          • I was texting with one of my friends from college who also lives in Queens this week and said that we should make plans to hang out. She agreed and said she was very sad she hadn’t met the baby yet. I held back responding with, “You live three miles away from me. You could have come over any time. Shut the fuck up with that shit.” But I’d rather not lose her as a friend…

          • Marv

            Which sucks because you have a great guilt story in that someone drove 3,000 miles to meet that sweet smelling pineapple lol

            You can’t really blame people though. Especially at this age the people that aren’t into the kid thing are REALLY not into the kid thing

          • And I get that and I am OK with it. I just don’t want someone to say how sad they are that they’ve not met the kid when they could have figured out a time to stop by over the last 7 months. I’m not asking her to babysit or anything, just act like the friend you say you are.

  • It’s got to be weird to plan a big attention getting stunt to make a statement and then when it succeeds, and you get the attention that you want, no one understands the statement.

    • Marv

      “We’re raising awareness!”
      “Of what though?”

    • They’re gonna be surprised as shit when they find out nobody actually understood it and they were being too “clever” for their own good.

      • Marv

        They’ll just think all of us, the entire American public, are the idiots.

  • I’m adding an addendum onto my “what would you do with a million dollars” list.

    I’m getting me a Burgertime machine.

    • Marv

      I would definitely buy like ALL the things I’d need to make all my favorite sushi including the classes

      • But isn’t part of the fun of sushi not having to put in the labor?

        I mean, you COULD straight razor shave yourself, but part of the joy is not having to move your own arms to do it.

        • Marv

          Straight razors remain fiscally reasonable to me though, and I hate shaving a lot more than cooking.

          I’d love to be able to just randomly make my own fish for lunch though that would fucking rule. It’s not like I’d never go out to my places ever again.

    • Burger Time will always hold a special place in my heart, as it was the only video game my grandmother would play. It was so awesome watching her figure that thing out. I will always love that game.

    • I played the absolute shit out of that on my Intellivision.

  • Marv

    I mean people make coffee at home too they still go out for coffee ya heard me

  • Marv

    Ok goodnight my sweet geeks, 8:56 p.m. lol the dream is raaaaaaaaayl

  • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

    Just read the Seinfeld 9/11 script.

    I gotta be honest, I kinda want to see it now.
