  • My wife left to get bagels. I am pleased.

    • ProjectBlue

      I can’t wait to see how Google reinvents the wheel next

  • Fun_Matt_Indeed

    Friday is the best day of the week.

    • But today is new comic book day… I love new comic book day!

      • Fun_Matt_Indeed

        I love knowing I will be off for the next 2 days when I wake up on Friday morning.

        • TatR!

          Poor Ferrari has to work the weekend though 🙁

          • Fun_Matt_Indeed

            He should get a job that doesn’t do that.

        • I will be off the next two days when I wake up Wednesday morning.

          • Fun_Matt_Indeed

            That’s not normal!

          • 🤷🏻‍♂️

          • Fun_Matt_Indeed

            I don’t know what that means.

          • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

            That’s obviously a male symbol

    • Yes, Ferrari is wrong.

    • TatR!

      Like movies and albums, should comics be moved to Fridays or is that overkill

      • Fun_Matt_Indeed

        They should. Just make Friday overwhelmingly awesome.

        • TatR!

          NFL on Friday night?

          • Fun_Matt_Indeed

            Why not!

          • TatR!

            maybe we could just rename Wednesday also to Friday

          • Fun_Matt_Indeed

            Might as well!

    • Comdukakis

      today is the best day because I have Thursday and Friday off.

  • TatR!

    batman batman batman

  • Reasonable Opinion Guy

    I found out just hours ago that Superdry isn’t actually Japanese and I’m still bummed 🙁

  • Fun_Matt_Indeed

    I’m concerned the Yankees will slip through and steal the series somehow from the Indians. I think our pitching is superior, but who knows what will happen in a 5 game series.

    • I think it’s unlikely the Yankees win the ALDS, but I do believe they match up better with the Tribe than they do the Astros.

  • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

    *yawn*
    .
    hey

    • Fun_Matt_Indeed

      Mr. Gomez.

  • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

    So this Saturday starts my sort of “farewell tour” with my band, as I’m gonna step down as I just don’t have enough time to juggle it with work and just life in general. I may just pull a Trent Reznor and Prince and do my own shit

    • Fun_Matt_Indeed

      Just call it NO WAY, JOSE and it’s just you on every instrument.

    • TatR!

      Juggalos juggle it no mater what bro

    • you should play nothing but all those whiny being on the road is so hard songs for your final show.

      hope you figure out a system of doing what you like the way you like it

  • Fun_Matt_Indeed

    This record player is fun. I just like playing with new things. The new Foo Fighters album sounds good on it too.

    • Comdukakis

      if I ever get a divorce or get really rich I’m going to get a house with a music room and get bang up setup with a turntable

      • What about two turntables and a microphone. Then you’ll be where it’s at.

        • Comdukakis

          wasn’t that Big Audio Dynamite?

          • TatR!

            Beck!

    • TatR!

      jesus it must be magic

      • Fun_Matt_Indeed

        You don’t like Foo Fighters?

        • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

          Don’t worry, I love me some Foo Fighters myself

          • Fun_Matt_Indeed

            I figure Foo Fighters have made too much money for TatR to like.

          • TatR!

            well that’s silly! I love many very popular bands

  • TatR!

    imagine the kind of monster who would eat chips in a quiet office, imagine that monster

  • Mikey

    Morning all, Indians-Yankees

    • Comdukakis

      as a tigers fans I’m rooting for Houston all the way.

      • Mikey

        That’s understandable, especially with Verlander.

        • Comdukakis

          yep. he deserves this.

          • Fun_Matt_Indeed

            He’s a multimillionaire who bones Kate Upton regularly. He’s fine.

    • Great game last night

      • Comdukakis

        for some reason I hear Flip Wilson saying “here comes the Judge”

      • Mikey

        Did not surprise me when the Yankees came back.

        • If anyone other than Santana was on the mound, I would have been shocked that they came back so fast.

          • Mikey

            Yankees seem to own him. I think they should have just gone with Berrios. Though I don’t know if he was on short rest or not.

          • Both teams made severe tactical errors with their starting pitching. The Twins knocked Severino around last week.

      • DAJackson7

        Both starters were awful. Louise said after the Twins batted “I bet you are happy” I said nope, Santana is to old and what do ya know he gave it right back. And damn did that drag on..two hours to get through the 3rd.

  • Reasonable Opinion Guy

    So who else is ready for Jared Leto as Hugh Hefner.

    • TatR!

      I hear he’s been getting into character for decades by treating women like garbage

    • Diddly

      A gay man pretending to be attracted to women will be the acting job of the MILLENNIUM!

    • Which one is Jared Leto? I know the name so he must be famous for something..

  • Diddly

    The new LEGO Star Wars dictionary is pretty cool! I’ve noticed no historical inaccuracies either! Only bummer is they left out the new Last Jedi sets!

  • Fun_Matt_Indeed

    I don’t know how you like rock but don’t like Foo Fighters. Their fun, their energetic, talented, they still love to perform, they put out a lot of material for their fans, and they don’t seem to take things too seriously. They’re great.

    • TatR!

      Probably just a failure of imagination on your part. I like literally about 200 other rock bands more than them.

      • Fun_Matt_Indeed

        So you only like 200 bands?

        • TatR!

          I can copy and paste my most listened to bands off of Last.Fm if you wish

          • Fun_Matt_Indeed

            I’d rather you not.

          • TatR!

            According to last.fm I listened to Foo Fighters once in the last six years, putting on This Is A Call on the 13th of August 2014. Obviously with the intent of listening to the whole first album but clearly got bored that quickly.

          • Fun_Matt_Indeed

            Ok.

    • Diddly

      I like them as a band, but there are some songs of theirs I just don’t care for (Pretender, Best of You)

      • Fun_Matt_Indeed

        I agree. Some songs are annoying. But I feel that way about a lot of bands I like.

    • I like that song that they played for Letterman, but otherwise it all sounds sort of the same to me

      • Fun_Matt_Indeed

        It’s fine.

  • DAJackson7
    • that’s kind of awesome

      • DAJackson7

        Much better than building a new stadium, that’s for sure

  • Fun_Matt_Indeed

    I’m currently listening to Lazy Bird by John Coltrane, so I’m more of a pretentious asshole than TatR ever dreamed to be. So take that.

    • TatR!

      We can’t define Pretentious Asshole as just Someone Who Can’t Be Bothered Listening To The Foo Fighters, Matt.

      • Fun_Matt_Indeed

        Why are you capitalizing your words?

        • TatR!

          it’s pretentious and assholey to think that people are affecting to dislike things for reasons other than that they simply don’t like them!

          • Fun_Matt_Indeed

            I just told you I was a pretentious asshole, what more do you want from me?

          • TatR!

            I feel ill and irritable 🙁

          • Fun_Matt_Indeed

            I’m sorry. Is it the guy eating chips?

          • TatR!

            50/50 you and her.

          • Fun_Matt_Indeed

            I’m sorry I made you ill. It’s a normal reaction to me at least.

          • I’m ill at the thought of people not loving Foo Fighters

          • Fun_Matt_Indeed

            Me too, but what can you do?

          • Send TatR emails with links to Foo Fighters songs?

          • Fun_Matt_Indeed

            That would be funny.

          • Just a constant barrage. A new one every 5 minutes

          • TatR!

            how would i tell the difference you could just send me the same one every 5 minutes

          • The videos would be different

          • Fun_Matt_Indeed

            Burn!

    • I like to listen to my local listener supported jazz station while I drink my craft beer and turn my nose up at mass market entertainment. If that doesn’t make me the best ever then I don’t know what does.

    • RudoWakening

      You’re so pretentious that you skip ‘A Love Supreme’

      • Fun_Matt_Indeed

        I’m not that pretentious. That shit rules.

  • The Professor

    Last night I finished season 6 and started season 7 of Parks and Rec.

    The show should have ended with the season 6 finale. Leslie moves on from the parks dept; tom gets a successful business. ron already has a happy life with wife and 3 kids. april and andy are happy in their lives. no need to have the final season.

    • Fun_Matt_Indeed

      Yeah, if they ended with Season 6, that finale would be fine. But the Series finale is great too.

      • RudoWakening

        It really is

  • Facts

    Ahhh a pleasant morning/afternoon to you all. Hope you were not yelled at because of your pets acting like your pets and waking your wife up at 5 am.

    • DAJackson7

      Of our three dogs only two wake us up…Both of her dogs…i hate them

    • Any animal that wakes me up at 5am shall be turned into food for a larger animal. It’s the circle of life.

      • Facts

        What if it is a bear asking for some sugar because they forgot to buy sugar from the store last night?

        • RudoWakening

          You’d have to find a shark

        • A bear?? You shoot a bear! This isn’t some Winnie the Pooh shit here, this is real life!

  • The Professor

    wow they even said cubs would win world series; good prediction

    • RudoWakening

      Bad prediction!

  • RudoWakening

    And a good Wednesday to you all, fellow Geeks

  • I listened to the new Foo Fighters album on Spotify the other day. ‘Twas quite lovely.

    • Fun_Matt_Indeed

      I’m enjoying it so far.

  • WorldWide Duck

    I think the problem with the Foo Fighters is their craft has remained static for their entire careers. Usually with great bands you can see the albums in the order they came out and it makes a sort of sonic history that tells the story of the band. Peaks and valleys, changes and growth. The albums that The Beatles, Stones, Bowie, Prince, Zepplin or U2 put out could only have been created in the order they were created.

    Everything the Foos have made since Color and the Shape could have been put out in any order and still made the same amount of sense.

    • Fun_Matt_Indeed

      I’m sorry, I stopped reading after “Worldwide Duck”.

      • WorldWide Duck

        This is fair.

      • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

        I mean, he might actually be right, I just don’t know. Or care, to be honest. I’ve never been into music analysis beyond a “I like what I like” level.

    • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

      Ok.

    • It’s not THE Foo Fighters, it’s just Foo Fighters.

    • Everything The Foo Fighters produce sounds the same since 1994.

      • DAJackson7

        I would agree with this, they never much did anything for me

  • Fun_Matt_Indeed

    I’m eating an apple.

    • Diddly

      I should eat more apples, but they don’t give my brain and taste buds the same satisfaction that salty, unhealthy snacks give me

      • TatR!

        cover your apple in salt and dip it into chocolate for a healthy treat!

  • WorldWide Duck

    Also, I’m pretty excited the MLB playoffs are finally here!

  • TatR!

    October 4th: TatR becomes the first Casual Geeker to take a knee to protest the ongoing punishment of dissent from agreed opinion.

    • And I take a knee in protest to your taking a knee

      • Fun_Matt_Indeed

        And I take a knee because I found a penny on the floor.

        • TatR!

          well we can’t all take a knee because then

          okay, so I’m now standing in protest.

          • Right. So am I. I’ll sit when you sit.

          • Fun_Matt_Indeed

            When I move, you move….just like that.

          • TatR!

            it’s a mime protest

    • Facts

      I am taking a knee to tie my shoe even though I am wearing dress shoes without any laces.

    • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

      Great, another distraction. Now we’ll never win the Super Bowl!

    • Watching Ep 6 OH MY GO IT’S DIANE

      • TatR!

        Laura Dern! Who else could it be!

  • Facts

    I guess since I am from Texas I will root for the Astros but the Indians are scalping teams left and right.

  • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

    I feel like if pink goo didn’t stop people from scarfing down McDonald’s, we’re just destined to be a nation of fat, unhealthy consumers.

    Maybe the next empire will do better.

    • WorldWide Duck

      It’s utilitarianism. Priorities are Cheap and Fast. Healthy is farther down the list.

      Garbage in 2 minutes for $2 Will look more attractive than Good Food in 30 minutes for $20.

      • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

        Also, people don’t like to be dictated to or preached at. “Oh, this double cheeseburger is unhealthy? Well, watch me eat two and wash it down with a tub of Coke! Fuck you! USA, USA!!”

  • TatR!

    Alright. it’s 2:50pm, I feel awful, I’m in a terrible mood, nobody else in my team is here, I’m going home

    • Huzzah! Home!

    • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

      You know what’ll cheer you up?
      .
      Foo Fighters

    • Jade gave two rides

    • I’m ducking out early this afternoon to be present for The Baby’s first haircut.

    • Diddly

      Oh look at Mr. Fancy with his GMT +0 time zone

      • TatR!

        I originally wrote 14:50 but figured I’d get a beating

        • Diddly

          Something only the US military members here would understand!

    • Fun_Matt_Indeed

      I love you, TatR.

  • Mikey

    Friend’s birthday today. Have to work tomorrow. Tomorrow is going to probably be bad.

  • Diddly

    Do they still make those maps of the globe that show which parts are facing the sun and which are in nighttime? Always loved those in the 90s

    • DAJackson7

      Whoa….that’s way to fancy

  • Fun_Matt_Indeed

    You can obviously like what you like.

    Just know that Foo Fighters don’t need your love! They’ve won 11 Grammys, sold 12 million albums, and sell out every concert!

    • I rather expected that Grole fellow to be searching the internet to see what people on blogs are saying about him.

    • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

      Aw, that’s super.

  • awww Harry Dean Stanton! (sorry watching Twin Peaks)

  • Facts

    I saw her today at the reception
    A glass of wine in her hand
    I knew she would meet her connection
    At her feet was her footloose man
    No, you can’t always get what you want
    You can’t always get what you want
    You can’t always get what you want
    But if you try sometime you find
    You get what you need

  • WorldWide Duck

    I finally completed recollecting Preacher in trades! I think I will try to donate my older copies to a library.

    I HATE when they rerelease collections that are different than the original collection order. I was missing 2 Preachers and had to start from scratch.

  • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

    I do like me some Foo. Pretty amazing given the fact that Grohl went from drumming for one of the most influential bands ever to rocking out in stadiums with his own band

  • Fun_Matt_Indeed

    Letterman is coming back, but to Netflix for $2 million an episode. A live, long-form interview format.

    Man, Netflix sure is throwing money around.

    • They’ve committed to spending 500M dollars on Canadian content!

      Beachcombers 2k18, make it happen!

    • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

      This is surprising.

    • Facts

      Will he have the Santa Claus beard?

      • Fun_Matt_Indeed

        I don’t know.

      • RudoWakening

        I hope so. Dave’s beard is impressive

    • Was very excited to hear that when it was announced and am looking forward to it

      • Fun_Matt_Indeed

        Yeah, they’re saying it’s gonna be like “Barbara Walters Specials, but with a live audience, and Dave’s humor.”

        • hmm. I figured it get back to some man on the street type stuff since he used to love doing that but… you know 5 days a week

        • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

          So…nothing like the Barbara Walters Specials?

          • Fun_Matt_Indeed

            Exactly.

          • hopefully the soft focus close ups for dave

  • ugh… 50 shades of grey scribe is being brought in on Venom….

    • Facts

      ……………………………………eww

  • Fun_Matt_Indeed

    Now I feel bad that I contributed to TatR’s bad mood. 🙁

    • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

      Probably ate too many cold raw onion and cheese sandwiches.

      • Fun_Matt_Indeed

        Is that something British people eat?

        • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

          I think he’s the only one on the planet who thinks that’s a delicacy.

          • Fun_Matt_Indeed

            Poor Mrs. TatR.

  • Facts
    • THAT’S BECAUSE THE ANTIFA HAVE SUBLIMINAL MESSAGES IN THEIR BLOGS TO CORRUPT YOUR MIND!!!

      • Fun_Matt_Indeed

        It wouldn’t surprise me if my parents listened to him, or watched his show. I’m afraid to ask them.

        My dad has mentioned the federal reserve being UnAmerican, so I’m assuming he’s at least a Zeitgeist fan.

  • Facts

    SHARP?! Skinheads Against Racial Prejudice??

    • Fun_Matt_Indeed

      wut

    • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

      So…just random bald White guys?

    • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

      Weren’t the OG skinheads against all that?

    • Comdukakis

      been a thing forever. I remember them at club shows I went to back in 90/91

  • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

    So that kid really thought he threw that paper airplane all the way across the ocean? Okay then.

    • TatR!

      hey what did Status Quo ever do

  • RudoWakening

    As regards the Foo: I generally enjoy 1 or 2 songs per album, that’s about it

    • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

      Dude, check out Barbed Wire Dolls. They’re pretty decent

    • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

      So you buy the whole album anyway because you pity the Foo?

      I’ll show myself out.

      • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

        At least he’s not a Pretender about it

    • Comdukakis

      radio band. You hear the hits, you hear what’s worth it. Similar to AC/DC and Van halen IMO

  • Yeah and Sharon Van Etten is the musical guest on this twin peaks!

  • Marv

    Went to the ER last night to get the boy an IV. I am more exhausted at this moment than I have ever been in my entire life.

    • jesus… he got that bad?

      Things going to be ok?

    • Just dehydrated? I hope that he’s ok.

      • Marv

        So dehydrated he wouldn’t really wake up it was fucking scary. I’ll be spending every second today trying to shove ice pops down his throat.

    • Fun_Matt_Indeed

      Damn. Is he okay?

      • Marv

        Much better now. I don’t know about me and mom though.

        • Fun_Matt_Indeed

          I can imagine the trauma. Sorry man.

    • Facts

    • Brian_Bayless

      Awful news. Does he have the flu?

      • Marv

        We all do this house is a den of misery right now

        • Brian_Bayless

          I had the flu so bad last year I was unable to get out of bed or even lift my head and had to wait from my wife to come home from a business trip to take me to the hospital. It was hell.

          • Marv

            I thought I felt like shit yesterday, now on about two hours of sleep I am so stiff and sore it’s hard to move. We’re going to call in the support staff today we both need sleep so bad.

          • Brian_Bayless

            Is it a stomach flu or more congestion. Or both?

          • Marv

            Way more congestion though there’s been a bit of vomit and a whole lot of poopy. It’s so early I didn’t think flu came so soon but I think we all got it from someone when we were gone over the weekend.

          • Brian_Bayless

            I got it in the early Spring. The real flu too, like I tested positive for Influenza “B” which is actually much better than “A”

          • Marv

            If this lasts into tomorrow we’ll probably go get tested. They didn’t even test him last night they just shoved an IV in him and we got to sit there basically holding him down while he went into a full fucking panic attack. It was great fun.

            BACK OUT NOW BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE RUN BRIAN RUN lol

          • Brian_Bayless

            I’m a borderline psychotic about hydration so I’ll force water down no matter how I feel.

          • Marv

            It was so fast. 7 p.m. he was fine (I mean sick but fine) and by 11 he was like a dried apricot his skin was rough like he’d been rolling in a sand box

          • Brian_Bayless

            Yeah, the flu is vicious. It can do that.

    • Diddly

      Fuck man, hope y’all turn out alright

    • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

      That must have been an ordeal. Hope everything’s okay.

    LOL I know this is The Casual Geekery but WWE is gonna have Bray Wyatt become Sister Abigail.

    LOL

    • Why are you so bigoted Facts?

      • Facts

        Because Bray Wyatt’s booking is the shits.

        • He/she is so brave.. and should be celebrated for becoming her true self

    • Marv

      It’s been like…four years of him jabbering about that horse shit now?

      • Brian_Bayless

        Yes and he’s met with complete silence now. Like, all he does is kill off the guy he’s feuding with.

        • Marv

          I mean even super marks at this point have to have realized that he never ever wins right?

          • Brian_Bayless

            You can feel the energy disappear from the building when he comes out. Like, no one cares anymore.

      • It’s all worth it if he goes by Abraygail

    • This is very topical here with our very own Hoss and Kenny Reigns transitioning.

    • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

      I assume this is a joke but WWE Champion Jinder Mahal proves anything’s possible.

      • Brian_Bayless

        It also proves no one likes to go to Smackdown.

        • Marv

          Wow lol, where were they?

          • Brian_Bayless

            They have to move them all to the hard camera side. And the arena was dark as hell last night too.

            TV show tapings are not getting any fans at all.

        • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

          Was that a TV taping?!? JAYSUS.

          On the plus side, Randy Orton must take some solace in the notion that it’s not HIS fault this time.

          Jeez

    • DAJackson7

      That company has fallen so far down the rabbit hole…they don’t care to make it better and i don’t care to watch anymore at all. That’s a sad indictment of what they have become

    If only Shelton weren’t resting in peace then he would chime in on The Foo Fighters while screaming TatR! TatR! TatR!

    • “I hate Foo Fighters. I like angry death metal from the 80s, and Rush.”

      There.

      • Facts

        Also women hate me.

    Anyway here’s today’s new greatest gif of all time, this cat gets pwned

    https://i.imgur.com/pDNr5XJ.gif

    • Marv

      I don’t even like cats but a cat shuffling backward is my fucking favorite thing in life now

      • I like the…. “just get to the bird.. we will figure the rest out when I get to the bird..” attitude

    • DAJackson7

      That’s the greatest thing ever

    • Wings FTW you feline fuck.

  • Marv

    That’s one of those gifs I can stare at for so long and for so many loops that I almost fall into it and start thinking I’m there on the scene and this is actually happening right in front of me. I may be hallucinating a bit.

  • Marv

    I may have to actually watch a bit of wrestling to see how deeply terrible this cross dressing Bray thing is

    • He hasn’t done it yet. Hopefully, it won’t happen because it sounds so. fucking. dumb.

      Which means it probably will.

      :: sigh ::

      Well, there’s no way they can fuck up Asuka, right?

      Right?

      Bueller?

      • Marv

        Which one was Asuka?

        • Japanese NXT chick who dresses like she’s an 80s hair metal groupie and kicks the shit out of everyone.

      • Mikey

        They’ll have Asuka lose via roll up to Nia Jax

        • She’s already beaten Jax, hasn’t she? Or did Jax get called up first?

          also, if that broad rolls you up, chances are you’re staying down.

          • RudoWakening

            She killed Nia with a kick to the brain on a Takeover

  • Watched Wonder Woman via Amazon video a week or two ago.

    It was ok. Didn’t suck. I don’t get what all the hype was about. I guess compared to Bats vs Supes, it was good.

    • Marv

      That was really the thing, it was being judged against Suicide Squad and a video of my shit swirling around a toilet for two hours could win an Oscar compared to that.

    • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

      I thought it was a legit good movie

    Supposed to go Cedar Point this Friday but 90% chance of rain.

    • Marv

      We went to King’s Island back in like 1992 and it poured the whole day. It was wonderful! We had the entire park to ourselves, my mother was like, “Fuck that! We’re going to the park we’re Seattlites rain can suck our dicks.”

    • Fun_Matt_Indeed

      I love Cedar Point soooo much. It’s been 20 years though.

        I have watched up to Episode 3 so far and fucking love it.

        • Because it’s awesome. I’m still pissed about how Fox fucked up.

          • Facts

            They said it was too dark and yeah I agree fox fucked it up.

          • Mikey

            Maybe it should have just been on WB? Though maybe WB didn’t have the budget for the show.

  • Facts

    I also will watch the movie Serenity after I finish the series.

  • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

    I must admit, that Thor movie actually looks fun.

  • Mikey

    The best looking woman on Firefly was the one that ended up in Deadpool. Morena Baccarin or something like that.

        • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

          Marv….liking something?

        • WorldWide Duck

          “Confession” is one of my favorite stories ever.

          “The Nearness of You” is the greatest tearjerker in comic history.

    • Marv

      I’m fucking over the moon to get your thoughts on that second issue.

    Morning folks, looks like the ol’ company email is down so it looks like I get to watch the Google reveal in 5 minutes

  • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

    Tipping: when, where and how much?

    • Fun_Matt_Indeed

      When: at the end of the meal
      Where: in restaurants
      How much: 20% if good. 15% if okay. 10% if not good.

      • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

        See, it’s that last one that gets me. Why should I pay any % if the service was outright bad?

        • Fun_Matt_Indeed

          You don’t have to. If it’s atrocious, they get nothing from me.

        • ProjectBlue

          Depends on what was bad about it. If it’s food fuckups but the server was trying, I try not to penalize for the kitchen. Snotty or spacey, I’ll lowball tips though

      • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

        What about delivery?

        • DAJackson7

          10% flat rate

          • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

            Yeah, that’s what I usually end up going with.

          • ProjectBlue

            I’ll add a bit more if it’s bad weather out

        • Fun_Matt_Indeed

          I usually give 3-5 dollars.

    WALLINGFORD, Conn. (AP/WTNH) — Police say a substitute teacher was arrested for refusing to leave a Connecticut elementary school after he was told he wouldn’t be allowed to work in the district anymore.

    Wallingford police say 24-year-old Kelly Bolling, of Norwalk, was arrested last week at Pond Hill Elementary School on charges including criminal trespassing. A school administrator had told him he wouldn’t be allowed back after he was discovered texting and watching movies during classes at two elementary schools.

    Police say Bolling resisted being taken into custody and raised his backpack as if to throw it at an officer and a school administrator. They say they found two small bottles of alcohol in the bag, one of which was mostly empty.

    ….I can see trying it once since most subs are barely functional and glorified babysitters but if you need the job you’d think you’d stop watching movies after the first warning.

    • DAJackson7

      Wow, that dude wasn’t even trying…and he threw a temper tantrum

  • Marv

    Alright well somehow that turned into a fight because despite getting everything she wanted (including bacon maple bars fucking yuuuuuuuuck) she still wants other stuff and blah blah blah. Somehow that all ended with me yelling “Well guess what? Dinner tonight is pizza rolls so fucking EAT THAT!”

    I don’t know what that means either. I’m in the garage again lol

    • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

      I’m proud of you.

      • Marv

        Her mother needs to get here ASAP we’re ready to kill one another

        You know what? He’s totally in the right this time.

        • Marv

          Not really, no one is right or wrong we’re both just hanging on by a thread

          • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

            I mean, you went out and got exactly what she wanted and it’s still wrong? Fuck it, it’s time to walk away and go chill.

          • Marv

            That’s what I did I didn’t even slam the door! It’s never good when I have to be the more rational person it’s just not the way this was built lol

        • chicagodem79

          Forgot the standard rule of women, they are inherently irrational lol.

    • ProjectBlue

      …bacon maple bars sound intriguing. Like some kind of pecan bar/cookie or just fancy granola bars? Those would be less intriguing

      • Marv

        Basically a normal maple bar donut with shredded bacon bits on top

    • mmmmmm pizza rolls

      • Marv

        I’m stoked I got two different kinds if pepperoni isn’t good enough for her she can have supreme just not all the supreme I really like supreme

        • you can’t ever go wrong with supreme

          • DAJackson7

            Now i really want pizza rolls

    • Bacon maple bars sounds good..

      • Marv

        They’re not bad its just so much sugar so early. I’m not really a donut guy I like bagels

  • ProjectBlue

    You would think copy and paste is within the realm of do-ability for 3rd grade. Just had 25% of a class melt down over it. Pointing out that those were also the ones doing fuck all during opening directions wasn’t warmly received.

  • today sucks

    • like nothing is going terribly wrong but I’m still doing 3 peoples jobs …. and don’t get to go out for lunch like I planned

    • Mikey

      :/

    • Marv

      Yes.

    • chicagodem79

      My allergies are killing me today, I have a slight headache, and it took 2 hours to get to work today……but it could always be worse….

      • Since I live 12 minutes away from work………..2 hours to get to work is about 45 minutes longer than I’d go before turning around and going back home

        • chicagodem79

          It usually takes about an hour to an hour 10 to get to work. I would’ve turned around, but I have a meeting this afternoon that I have to be here for, so I didn’t have a choice…which makes it a lot worse lol.

          • There is a disadvantage for being close though. If there is something someone has to pop in on the weekend to set up..but doesn’t have to stick around all day for.. do you think it’s the guy that lives 1h 15min away… or the guy that lives 12.

            Same with morning snow storm

    • Marv will be ok

      • No……………WE DONT KNOW THAT!!!

          If I don’t get rest soon I will be exceedingly not ok

    The DJ at the Google show is really trying hard to be cool, it’s pretty comical.

    I don’t get hyper political in my old age really but I swear I’ll be throwing a barbecue w/ keg when Pat Roberton dies.

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      I keep telling you! He’s been dead since 2002.

    • chicagodem79

      I honestly don’t know if it’s comical how callous and crass these so called “religious” people are, or if it’s just incredibly sad.

      • Marv

        It’s sad to me that so many people buy into it. Oooooh it was our disrespect of Trump that got people murdered in Las Vegas? That makes sense where do I send my check?

        • chicagodem79

          Just like the people that defended Joel Osteen despite him not opening up his mega church for evacuees. That’s a totally asshole thing to do, but nope, they cannot do any wrong.

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            That fucker couldn’t open The Summit for those folks!? What a cock hole!

      • Marv

        Jack Skellington somehow looks worse than the last time I saw him

        • I mean I don’t agree with Robertson most of the time.. but he already has my 10 bucks so I figured I should stay in the club

  • DAJackson7

    So i talked Louise out of getting new brakes on her car the dealership but she insists i buy “Genuine Lexus Parts” for when i do it…that shit costs twice as much and isn’t as good. Fuck.

  • To the question below:

    I tip 20 if I’m really impressed, 15 standard, or 10 if I’m less than thrilled. Rare times I have left less, or even totally stiffed, but that would only be if I can clearly see that I’m being ignored for no reason at all. I was a waiter back in the day and I get the challenges, but I also understand total ineptitude when I see it.

    Sit down service only. I don’t tip for food at counters.

    If I order a drink at the bar I tip 1.00 per drink. If I run a tab I’ll usually just tip 15%.

    Delivery is 10% or maybe 15 if the weather sucks.

    $2-3 for a haircut.

    Cabs get 10%.

    Hotel maids get a buck or 2 a day.

    I think that’s it.

    • Devin Harris

      Man, you’ve really put thought into this. I just fly by the seat of my pants

      • I work on systems.

      • Marv

        Same. Do whatever you feel is right, that’s my rule for tips.

        • Devin Harris

          What I feel is right + my money situation = tip I leave

          • Marv

            A lot of it depends on “How drunk am I right now?”

          • Devin Harris

            I really wasn’t paying attention in New York. I’m not sure how much the Uber guy got. I did not remember anything about the ride except getting in the car. I looked on my phone and had pictures and was like “ooh damn. Who took those?”

          • Marv

            Hahaha, well you were stumbling at like hour two and we stayed there for seven sooooooooo…

          • Devin Harris

            hahahahahahahaha

          • chicagodem79

            I usually tip more if I go to a restaurant in the hood or a restaurant where it looks like they could use an extra buck. Usually at soul food restaurants deep in the city.

          • Devin Harris

            Last time I went to a soul food joint the girl waited on our table holding her baby

          • Marv

            Hahahahahahahaha holy shit

          • Devin Harris

            “I’m sorry ya’ll. I couldn’t get a babysitter”

          • chicagodem79

            LOL, I’m not totally surprised by that

    • I don’t tip because society says I have to. All right, if someone deserves a tip, if they really put forth the effort, I’ll give them something… a little something extra. But this tipping automatically, it’s for the birds. As far as I’m concerned, their just doing their jobs.

    • TatR!

      Over here we don’t do bar tips. Like maybe some places will have a jar but it’s not normal to tip for a drink

  • Marv

    Oh I really don’t like this celebrity very much.

    What’s that, they’re eating hot wings?

    Ok apparently I’ll watch them talk for 25 minutes and love every second for some reason.

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      Did you just discover Hot Ones?

      • Marv

        Been watching off and on for a few weeks but I just realized how easily I fall into watching people that I don’t even like.

        Right now I’m 15 minutes into Wanda Sykes of all people but I’m totally into it.

        • Mr. Money On The Table

          What weirder is when you find yourself sucked in and he’s just talking to some YouTube goon. It’s a fine show.

  • Marv

    Now I’m onto Ricky Gervais and he’s talking about how David Brent, the ultimate narcissist with no self-awareness, now seems incredibly quaint in the face of Trump and he can’t really do the bit anymore.

  • Devin Harris

    sooooooooooooooooooooooo…………slut walk? That’s something we do now?

    • Marv

      *ears perk up*
      hmmm?

      • Devin Harris

        Someone named Amber Rose is having a slut walk. Apparently, she bangs rappers or something. I’m really not sure what the purpose of the walk is. #SlutLivesMatter? I guess

        • Marv

          …wait is this like a march of sluts?

          Amber Rose….wasn’t she Kanye’s ex?

          • Devin Harris

            Yeah, she’s the chick with the bald head

          • I actually heard her on Jimmy Pardo’s podcast and she wasn’t half bad as a person

        • Brian_Bayless

          Christ, I need to learn to play my country songs on a guitar. I’d be #1 on the charts with people liking them both ironically and unironically at this point.

        • Mikey

          Kanye, Wiz Khalifa, 21 Savage (I think right now), MGK. That’s just off the top of my head.

          • Devin Harris

            Well, that’s something.

    • I believe women are trying to so that they too can have sex and should not be slut shamed for it

      • Devin Harris

        What they do is their own business as far as I’m concerned. I’m just not sure how walking helps.

          • Devin Harris

            Doesn’t it have the opposite effect (or affect whatever)? Who would look at that picture and say out loud “that’s a very respectable woman”?

          • I think this is part of the point. Not to be judged on how they dress or if they want to have sex with people

          • Devin Harris

            I can feel them on that but I don’t think they’ve thought this through

          • like with a gay pride parade.. it isn’t a ton of gay people conservatively dressed quietly walking down the street. its loud bright and over the top because they are saying.. we aren’t ashamed of who we are..kind of the same thing

          • Devin Harris

            As an outsider looking in this does say very loudly that they are ashamed of who they are and they are looking for acceptance. I’m not a Kardashian fan but they do what they do and keep it moving. They don’t seem to care if someone approves of what they do as long as the checks keep rolling in.

  • TatR!

    Been listening to SP. Softened a lot on 2014’s Monuments To An Elegy. Was crushingly disappointed when it came out but musically it’s pretty tight. Lyrically still a bit weak and Corgans vocals could do with more edge, but it’s okay.

    2012’s Oceania remains an almost perfect album. Blows me away now as much as it did when it came out.

    • Marv

      I’ve never listened to MTAE but Oceania is still in my rotation and has been since the moment it came out. I’m so sad they lost that drummer he was like half of the awesome on that album.

      • TatR!

        Musically it’s just so incredible. It’s amazing. Just the first ten seconds of My Love Is Winter, the looping riff on Glissandra, just… all of it!

        • chicagodem79

          For laptops, the market seems to be either super cheapo, or premium with little in between. They’ve always had stuff in the cheapo range so I guess this is their shot at the high end range. I guess when you’re Google and have money to burn, why not? lol

    In addition to its Pixel phones and Home devices, Google announced a surprise today during its Pixel event. The company has come out with a camera that uses artificial intelligence to capture intimate moments that you aren’t able to get on your own. If your dog or baby is camera-shy, you can plant the Google Clips camera somewhere nearby to automatically take photos for you. The camera is trained to capture soundless video of faces and pets that it recognizes.

    …sounds creepy. Needs to be smaller, easily embeddable into household items and self destruct when found for my needs.

    ISLA VISTA, CA—In the days following a violent rampage in southern California in which a lone attacker killed seven individuals, including himself, and seriously injured over a dozen others, citizens living in the only country where this kind of mass killing routinely occurs reportedly concluded Tuesday that there was no way to prevent the massacre from taking place. “This was a terrible tragedy, but sometimes these things just happen and there’s nothing anyone can do to stop them,” said North Carolina resident Samuel Wipper, echoing sentiments expressed by tens of millions of individuals who reside in a nation where over half of the world’s deadliest mass shootings have occurred in the past 50 years and whose citizens are 20 times more likely to die of gun violence than those of other developed nations. “It’s a shame, but what can we do? There really wasn’t anything that was going to keep this guy from snapping and killing a lot of people if that’s what he really wanted.” At press time, residents of the only economically advanced nation in the world where roughly two mass shootings have occurred every month for the past five years were referring to themselves and their situation as “helpless.”

    Tim Allen still blaming Liberals for why his show got cancelled.

    He should be thankful for a long TV career in the first place.

      He was cooler when he was a liberal raging coke fiend getting blowjobs in the back of The Comedy Store.

    I have someone I know who is going on about “leftists” on Facebook so I’m responding to him about “rightists.”

  • The Silver Fox

    Never really watched Home Improvement. Frasier and 3rd Rock from the Sun were the main sitcoms I watched in the 90’s.

  • I saw an illegal .45 in high school once. And my uncle has a couple of hunting rifles but I’ve never seen them out.

    That’s all of my contact with guns.

    I’m not really anti gun in theory.. But the whole open carry concept seems completely insane coming from my background. If you see a person carrying a gun on the street then you know that you’ve got a bad guy on your hands.

    • Dwayne

      Lots of bad guys down here.

      • Yeah I guess. And that’s kind of the thing. I don’t care if people want to go out and target shoot, or even keep one at home if you feel that you need to defend your property I guess, but what kind of world are you living in where a rational person feels that they might wind up in a situation, just walking down the street, where having a gun on you would be an asset?

    I woke up feeling like I should make some changes in my life so I unsubscribed from a few subreddits. Now I’m going to watch the first episode of that Ken Burns Vietnam thing.

    • Do you feel you made the right cuts?

      • Marv

        Definitely. Lots of subs (like lots of places on the internet) became swirling toilets of hate for what they were meant to be fans of.

        • Give this place six months…

            I think we’ll last forever and ever!

          • There will probably have to be some bannings.

            But never NIGHT THREADS. EVER!

        • I’m trying to imagine what kind of angry drama bullshit r/mapporn could possible devolve into.

          • Marv

            It was mostly subs for tv shows, Sherlock and Top Gear and stuff like that

  • Marv

    Five minutes in and this is already a really weird Burns doc, it’s all loud music and flashy video this is so weird.

    • I’m gonna take a wild guess and say the letters sent home from Vietnam are gonna be a lot less…eloquent than the Civil War letters.

      • Marv

        This is going to be a weird one, it’s the only subject Ken Burns lived all the way through as far as I can remember.

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    Huh….so AVGN hates the old NES and SNES wrestling games but LOVED Wrestlemania The Arcade Game.

    I think he’s slipping..

    • What’s AVGN?

      • Angry Video Game Nerd. He reviews games, often in an angry manner, and incorporating a lot of profanity and fecal references.

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        The Angry Video Game Nerd. It’s a YouTube show.

    • Rick “The Hot Take King” Ross

      I can see the appeal for non wrestling fans. This was when fighting games were extremely popular.

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        He also shat on the LJN WWF figures (because LJN is his mortal enemy). That I could not abide by.

  • The Silver Fox

    Favorite Ken Burns documentary: either The Civil War or Baseball. With an honorable mention to Unforgivable Blackness: The Rise and Fall of Jack Johnson.

    • Marv

      Baseball is just fucking amazing. That’s what I think of when I think of Ken Burns. This Vietnam thing is so completely different from that style. It’s a little jarring but I’m sure I’ll get used to it over the next 18 hours of the documentary lol

      • I’ve never actually watched a Ken Burns documentary all the way through. Not that they’re bad or I don’t like his style, per se, but they’re one of those things you can’t really say “oh, I’m bored, lemme pop The Civil War on”, they’re more of something you have to make an active decision to watch.

        • Marv

          Oh yeah for sure, none of them are light viewing. Baseball is definitely worth watching across a month or whatever though for sure, it’s fucking brilliant.

          • I spent about three weeks watching all of Baseball. Such a good documentary.

          • Marv

            I like that he’s basically down for the idea of adding another inning every 10 years until he dies haha

      • RudoWakening

        You could have stopped after the first sentence.

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      He did the Jack Johnson doc?

      • Marv

        Yep. Never seen it though.

        • Mr. Money On The Table

          It’s pretty good.

          • The Silver Fox

            Jack Johnson is probably the most fascinating boxer to me.

  • The Silver Fox

    Ric Burns has also done some very good documentaries: New York: A Documentary Film (looking forward to the new episode next year), We Shall Remain and Into the Deep: America, Whaling & The World.

  • I still maintain that the best piece of longform educational/documentary television ever created was Carl Sagan’s Cosmos.

    • Marv

      As far as knowledge worth something, sure. Stylistically I’d say Baseball for sure, but that’s not something people really should need to watch. Cosmos everyone should see at least once.

      • Marv

        I’m repeating so many words tonight I’m still tuckered out hahaha

      • Yeah, Cosmos is one of those things where it’d be good no matter who was behind it, but you really get the impression Sagan enjoyed the shit out of making it and didn’t care if it was “good for his career”. You don’t get that sense of public service out of a lot of documentaries and such.

    • The Silver Fox

      In my home office I still have the copy of Cosmos that Carl Sagan autographed when I met him.

      • The Professor

        One that bugs me is the height thing.
        I am short (5’7″) so some women pass me by on there for that one reason.

        I see some people put , “I wont date anyone shorter than 6 feet.” 1) How many people are taller than 6′? 2) So if a guy is your perfect match is 5’10”, you wouldn’t date him?

        • I’m 5’11”, so I’m right in that meaty part of the curve where most women tend to be shorter than me, but not by like, a lot.

          Although Mrs. C is noticeably taller than I am. But that’s a little bit of a different case.

          I always told Shelton to completely ignore that shit and just write in a fake height. Let her be in the awkward position of being a cunt about it when you meet.

    About 7-8 years ago, I did an experiment on one of the dating sites. I put up a pic of a friend of mine on the east coast (just a headshot); yes I got his permission; I would say he is average looking. I said he was a lawyer; 6’1″ and put 5-6 generic words in the profile (likes movies, traveling) and just that one pic. I swear I got a ton of responses to that profile.

    Basically every male in my family has served, almost all with the Corps of Engineers I was the only dope to go into the Marines. The only interesting thing honestly was that my grandfather on my dad’s side worked at the Hanford nuclear site when they were building the bomb. He had no major role or anything but he was there.

    • RudoWakening

      Did he know of the Atomic Man?

      • Marv

        No idea, that story is horrifying though

    • The Silver Fox

      Neither my father nor grandfathers ever pressured me to join the military. I think they realized that I was unsuited for the military. And it’s also unlikely that I would’ve passed the basic fitness test.

      • Marv

        I was very unsuited as well as both the Marine Corps and I very rapidly figured out hahaha. My dad never pressured me but I certainly pressured myself.

          • Marv’s “I don’t know what to call you!” story is top-notch I-don’t-belong-here.

          • Marv

            I enjoyed basic. There were no options to get in trouble really (though I snuck cigarettes a LOT) once that was done and it became a regular full-time job with a bunch of other rules on top I couldn’t hack it.

      • The Professor

        Why are you unsuited for the military?

        It was more like a fling. If you lived in Paris for 16 months I wouldn’t call you a Parisian lol

      • Don’t worry, dude, no one tells me anything, either.

    • My dad and his dad were in the Navy, but my dad only went for four years (mostly to get away from his old man), and the old man was a lifer.

      My mom’s side of the family, some served in the Navy, but most stayed in the family business of building boats. We’re not a military family, but we seem to be a seagoing people.

    • Jeff Lynn: Come on man

  • RudoWakening

    My paternal grandfather and his brothers were all stationed in the South Pacific during the War. That’s boring. My maternal grandfather has a much better story:

    He lied about his age to join to Polish army after the Blitzkrieg and Nazi rule. He was captured (which year I don’t recall) and spent several months in a Nazi POW camp. He learned and became fluent in Russian, Italian, French, and English during his time there. After he got out, he met my grandmother, a Hitlerjugend, and they fled. They arrived in the States through Boston, I believe in 1946, and stayed with his family who made their way over several years earlier. They FUCKING HATED my grandma.

    My grandfather (dad’s dad) was in the Canadian infantry during WWII. He was sent over to France after the Nazi occupation ended on a peacekeeping mission, but never saw any action. He stayed with a family over there that I think he stayed in contact with for many years after the war.

  • RudoWakening

    I don’t know much about my dad’s maternal grandparents besides that his grandfather died after communion and his grandmother died on the way to mass. They also died before he was born.

    Wow they’re talking about how as the war goes on (and this is in 1962 so they still have a LOT of “on” left to go) American soldiers would be going out with groups of AVRN and as they’d be getting ready to ambush VC the AVRN would all start coughing as loud as they could, announce their position to the VC, then turn and fire on the Americans.

            I like the first season, the Japanese coffee ads that reunited the roster and the soundtrack. These are good Twin Peaks things.

          • Marv

            Yeah I should have quit after 20 seconds.

  • RudoWakening

    I’m heading to bed. I’m tired. Later dudes

    • Ginger Mahal

      Night, hermano.

  • The Silver Fox

    Blue Velvet might be the only David Lynch movie I enjoyed.

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      One day someone will tell me who’s ear that was. They never explained it and it bothered me the entire film.

    • Fun_Matt_Indeed

      My wife enjoys David Lynch. I’m not a fan.

  • Fun_Matt_Indeed

    Watching the Gaga documentary. When she plays the song she wrote for her grandma about Gaga’s aunt who died when she was 19….um yeah, tears. Both me and the wife.

    Pearl is still in the bathroom.

  • The Professor

    Treat yo self

  • Fun_Matt_Indeed

    This movie makes me love Gaga more.

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      She’s a cool lady but she was the focal point of the worst Simpsons episode ever.

      • The Professor

        She’s Seymour skinner?

        • Mr. Money On The Table

          I don’t mind that episode.

      • Fun_Matt_Indeed

        She didn’t write it.

        • Mr. Money On The Table

          Don’t care. That episode gave me robot AIDS.

          • Fun_Matt_Indeed

            Also, you should have stopped watching that show 15 years ago, at least.

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            I caught a rerun. I haven’t seen a fresh episode in years.

  • Marv

    Jesuuuuuuuuuus this war is already batshit. So we’ve all seen that pic of the monk on fire (the Rage Against the Machine cover) but I didn’t know that while he was burning a crowd of 300 monks silently stood around him while one kept chanting in Vietnamese and English “A Buddhist monk becomes a martyr, a Buddhist monk becomes a martyr”

    I need an adult I won’t be able to get to sleep tonight

    • I’m excited for you to get to the guy who gets shot in the head with the cameras on him the whole time.

    • Fun_Matt_Indeed

      What is this now?

      • Marv

        Ken Burns The Vietnam War, it’s on pbs.org and it’s absurd

        • Fun_Matt_Indeed

          I heard it was good….?

          • Marv

            I mean…it’s Ken Burns…

          • Fun_Matt_Indeed

            So yes.

    • Marv

      The lady in control of Southern Vietnam at the time’s response: “They want independence so much but even their protests don’t come from home, they use imported gasoline.”

      LOL it’s Mrs. Trump 50 years early

      • Fun_Matt_Indeed

        I’ll watch this soon.

        • Marv

          Like any Burns documentary it’s 18 hours so it’s more like you’ll watch this soon until (with luck) the end of the year lol

          • Fun_Matt_Indeed

            That’s what is awesome about his stuff. The journey.

          • Fun_Matt_Indeed

            The long, long journey.

  • Banshee from X-men first class is very mean to Amanda Seyfried

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    I think these homeless have found firecrackers.

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    There’s a fish in the percolator!

  • Marv

    The Zapruder Film is so seared into my psyche that any time I see Kennedy doing anything else I feel like his head is going to explode at any second.

    • The Professor

      Back and to the left

    • ProjectBlue

      Back in the day I was too much into the mythos (and bullshit) surrounding it. Have a giant book of autopsy photos, Zapruder stills, etc of JFK stuff on my bookcase

      • Marv

        I had a a giant photobook when I was young, like the kind with that terrible sticky clear plastic so you could lay stuff down and keep it there. I kept news clipping and stuff on the assassination in it, I was absolutely fascinated with all that for many years as a boy.

  • Run silent run drapes…… that’s amazing in the context of the show

  • This is weird. People still here talking. Weird.

    • Marv

      I slept all afternoon I’m going to be up to the crazy hour of like 10!

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    Oh……so rumor has it they are gonna make a Bob’s Burgers movie.

    • I’m very much down for that.

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        I am not. Not because I dislike the show I just don’t see why it needs to be a film. That said, I kinda expect it to be a musical.

        • I mean, I’d sit through a four-hour Bob’s Burgers movie before sitting through a two-hour Family Guy movie with about an hour of that being cutaways.

  • Marv

    Well shit, only the first two episodes are available on the website
    *goes hunting*

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    I would like for there to be a movie based on a TV show but based on something from the show as opposed to the show itself. Something like The Simpsons present: McBain and it would turn out to be a legit full length McBain movie.

  • Marvel cancelled its Punisher panel at NYCC in the wake of Vegas. Rumor was it was going to coincide with a surprise announcement that the show was available to stream. Now plans are up in the air.

    • Marv

      Boooooo it could have been this week?

      • Could still be… I read a rumor that it was going to be Oct. 20. Today was the first time I heard the rumor of the NYCC announcement. I think we get it by the end of the month either way.

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      I don’t like Netflix Punisher. He don’t look right.

      • Marv

        Absurd, it’s the only portrayal of the character that isn’t absolute shit.

        • Mr. Money On The Table

          To me he looks like the not Dave Chappelle or Jim Breuer character from Half-Baked or from certain angles, Shemp.

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            I hate his hair. I hate it a lot. I hate it very very much.

    • ProjectBlue

      I’m not a fan of such decisions. Unless they were going to cosplay a shooting on stage or most of the show happens to take place during a Vegas concert shooting, some undetermined amount of time added on doesn’t make it any “better”

      • It saves them from getting beat up from special interest groups, who will have calmed down about it in a couple of weeks.

        Cancelling the panel is a little much, as I doubt anyone going would be affected adversely by the shooting in the show.

    • Boo

  • Marv

    Oh man I’m going to end up spending like $45 on this goddamn doc now lol

    • ProjectBlue

      Cripes on on of the sites I dl stuff from the whole run goes from 30 gigs to 300 depending on what quality. That’s a lotta suffering

      • Marv

        Yeah it’s an 18-hour doc

  • Marv

    Fuck it I’m only going to buy episode three and see if I can steal it all later lol

    Here we gooooooooooooo

  • Rick “The Hot Take King” Ross

    Relax- don’t do it

    • What about when I want to go to it?

      • Rick “The Hot Take King” Ross

        Relax – don’t do it when you want to come

        • When I want to come?

          • Rick “The Hot Take King” Ross

            Relax – don’t do it

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    Heyyyyyyyyy…..there’s a seed in my kush!

    • Rick “The Hot Take King” Ross

      Hate when that happens.

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        It’s the first and only one I spotted all bag so it’s fine but still…the hell?

  • The Professor
    • Good grief.

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      That site still exists?

    • ProjectBlue

      Puttkemery, apparently not happy to have been interrupted, replied, “No. I’m trying to fuck.”. At least he’s honest

    • In fairness they had a bumper sticker warning the cops….that if the car was rocking

  • And it looks like DC is gonna go all Marvel on Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and the Flash, adding together all the numbering from previous volumes to celebrate anniversaries – 800 for Superman and Batman, 700 for Wonder Woman and The Flash.

    I bet they charge an extra buck for those issues, too. Jerks.

    • Dwayne

      Shouldn’t the DC titles be up to the thousands if they kept the original numbering? They are way older than Marvel

      • Action Comics hits 1,000 in about 6 months. Detective Comics (which debuted first, but never went weekly the way Action did in the 1980s) has 35 issues, so about a year and a half.

        • Dwayne

          I figured that had to be the case because Amazing Spider-Man is past 600 and that started in 1962

  • Ok made it through another ep… going to bed.

  • Marv

    It’s the same narrator as most of Ken Burns’ stuff (Parks, Roosevelts, The West, The Dust Bowl) so that makes it kind of feel normal but the lack of still pics and that classic effect really makes this doc feel so much different.

    Oh and apparently this narrator (Peter Coyote) did an audiobook version of Hatchet and that book fucking rules and I’m going to buy that

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    YouTube titles that for everyone else but us sound really really awful: “Tony Schiavone shoots on Ric Flair’s dong”.

    Shit….that title sounds awful in every context.

  • Marv

    LOL in January 1964 President Johnson told his advisors, “Hey…no more of this coup shit.”

    • He was on the shitter at the time

    • ProjectBlue

      I wonder if LBJ would fly today or if Trump is basically what that type of persona would be in this day and age

      • LBJ strikes me as much more of a fun kind of asshole.

        • Mr. Money On The Table

          He used to have an aqua car and would take guests out in it and would eventually drive towards a nearby pond and start exclaiming that the brakes were failing.

          • ProjectBlue

            Aqua car, THAT’S what I forgot
            ~Teddy Kennedy

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    For no good reason I have the opening riff to “Understanding in a Car Crash” by Thursday in my head. Just the open…nothing else.

  • Donald Trump to Brooke Shields in 1999: “He said, ‘I really think we should date because you’re America’s sweetheart and I’m America’s richest man and the people would love it,'” she continued.

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      🙄 Jesus…..

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    I have seen so much stupid shit in the last year.. fuckin’ internet.

  • Reasonable Opinion Guy

    What I listen to in the morning to get myself pumped up for the day.

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      It says yankees can’t enjoy it. I tried.

  • Mikey

    Whoops! Turns out I didn’t only have “two or three” tonight.

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      You had four?

    • Marv

      I am stunned!

  • Marv

    As far as I can tell the Gulf of Tonkin basically boils down to: Everyone is an asshole

  • Rockies are making this game interesting. October baseball rules.

    • Marv

      Haven’t watched it in years.

      • It was super fun when the Orioles made the playoffs a couple years ago and turned Camden Yards into a Mexican soccer stadium cranked up to 11.

        • They were killing people?

          • I mean, this IS Baltimore we’re talking about.

        • Marv

          The last time I paid attention to the playoffs was 2003.

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    I think this homeless guy just shimmied a note out of the leg of his pants. Looked like a treasure map.

  • All this ken Burns talk made me want to go to sleep to the baseball series…….it’s like the only one not on netflix or Prime………figures

    • They took it off Netflix and Prime? Bastards.

      • 1.99 an ep on prime…see it on youtube…bout to check if it’s good or that weird off speed BS so much is these days for reasons I can’t fathom.. like I get that it keeps you from getting caught… i don’t get who watches

  • Facts

    Work you stupid PBS site. I just wanna watch Ken Burns.

    • Marv

      It will let you do two episodes for free after that it asks for $60 lol

      • Facts

        Looooooooollllllll

        • Marv

          The other option is buying the whole thing on Amazon for $45 which is what I’ll end up doing

          • Facts

            I found one on Youtube called Vietnam: A Television History

          • My brother-in-law made a donation to PBS a few years back and they sent him DVDs of all the Burns docs. My father-in-law got the Civil War and he gave me Baseball.

          • Marv

            Yeah in thinking about it I may just give the money to PBS directly

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            Do it

  • Mikey

    Gonna do Regulate on karaoke. I’m Nate Dogg.

    • Marv

      Lol oh god so you’re like that right now hahahaha, be safe dude

      • Mikey

        To be honest, no. I’m actually not that far past two or three. I’ve still gotta babysit both the 30 year old and the guy who is having hell with his girlfriend so I have to be semi responsible. Much more a Saturday Mikey tbh

        • Marv

          Saturday Mikey is boring!

          • Marv

            But is the best kind of Mikey considering work tomorrow and all that lol

    • Mike Mears

      If you smoke like I smoooke, you be high like every day

    • Rick “The Hot Take King” Ross

      Do you say the N word?

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    Blacklights seem like a cool idea until you turn it on and it reveals what a disgusting motherfucker you are..

  • Mike Mears

    I wish my beer tastes would eventually evolve beyond IPAs being my favorite. But I don’t drink enough to branch out these days.

    • Marv

      Grow the fuck up and start drinking whiskey

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        Yargh.

    • I mean, I would drink shit besides rotgut malt liquor, but the bastards who make the “better” stuff won’t make it any cheaper, so…their loss.

      • Dwayne

        I still fuck with malt liquor

        • Mr. Money On The Table

          It’s fine if you do it right.

        • Marv

          Not scared of a grenade either

        • It’s cheap and it gets you sauced in a hurry. That’s win-win.

  • yep the youtube stuff seems legit..night boys

  • Marv

    None of this doc is making me thinking Vietnam is anything more than a garbage country by the way lol

    • Well, you DO have firsthand experience with it.

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    😐🙄😮😭🙏😭💨😁.

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    Now I kinda want malt liquor

  • Marv

    It just occurred to me that I am literally in his garage watching Vietnam war footage and drinking beer. I am really fully becoming my father in every way lol

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    I think I see hooker shenanigans….or maybe it’s just a crazy lady

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      Crazy lady.

      • The Professor

        both?

        • Mr. Money On The Table

          Nah. It was some scraggly haired broad with a shopping cart

  • Ugh. Someone is trying to get credentials on the site.

    • Marv

      What does that mean?

    • Marv

      Nevermind I’m getting the same emails

      • Marv

        I don’t know what any of this means though lol

        • Me neither. I probably have to issue new passwords to everyone.

          Ugh.

          • Marv

            We really need a smart guy around here.

          • I’m searching for one.

          • I’ve been getting a lot of spam comments lately, too, which is weird.

          • Marv

            Really? I guess I never see those. I barely saw the post from Thad from like two weeks ago that was stuck because he used the wore q.u.e.e.r. and I’d put every variation of that word into the filter that day when we were getting douched out lol

          • Yeah, they’re only showing up on the website’s dashboard, like they’re not using Disqus. Might be on the old WordPress side of the site, where the sucky comment system still exists.

          • Speaking from experience over at JGR, where we also use WordPress, it gets brute forced A LOT. We don’t get much more than the occasional hilarious spam comment, but we had to institute pretty draconian lockout features over there because so many people try to kick the door down.

          • People have way too much free fucking time on their hands.

          • Look at it this way: they wouldn’t bother if we weren’t putting butts in the seats.

          • We are a high-quality site.

  • Marv

    Kind of cool they track basically the entire antiwar movement back to one guy that did a protest outside a napalm plant in Wisconsin

  • Marv

    Ugh then they cut to a 90-year-old woman talking about her son going and dying and it’s like…he died 45 years before this interview and she’s still crying…

    Some of this shit is miles harder to watch these days for sure

    • Ken Burns’s Afghanistan is gonna be funderful in 25 years.

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    It’s time for feed bag.

  • Marv

    35 minutes left in this episode I might not make it, 9:15 is so late lol

  • Well, it’s a quiet night here at work, so I should find some trailers for tomorrow.

    • Marv

      Call yourself Ferrlorry see because trailers and they call trucks lorry’s in England and…yeah I’m getting really tired

  • Marv

    So going back to that joke earlier about Johnson being the 60s version of Trump when Morley Safer reported on troops burning down villages in 1965 Johnson called the head of CBS and said, “Hello Frank, this is your President, are you trying to fuck me? Safer should face the American flag, he’s probably a Red and should be fired.”

    • Remember the days where a President could pull rank on the head of a major network and we didn’t know about it for 52 years?

      • Marv

        Honestly I’m not sure which is better. It’s absolutely insane though how many of the steps in this war are followed by “And by Presidential decree the American people were not told.”

        • I’m also excited for the Nixon half of the war. That’s gonna be insane.

          • Marv

            Yeah dude I’m barely to 1965!!!!

  • Marv

    Oh and of course the soundtrack selections for this entire thing are just absolutely sublime, now listening to Johnny Cash as huey’s land in rice patties…

  • Marv

    Reporter lands in a hot spot and the Captain there (Chargin’ Charlie as they called him) hands him a rifle and shows him how to clear it and says “You may shoot the little brown men outside of the barbed wire, you may not shoot the little brown men inside it they belong to me.” The reporter responded that he was a noncombatant and the Captain responds, “We have a word for that in these mountains, it’s pronounced dead.”

    This is just an incredible doc man, I’m equal parts fascinated and horrified.

    • My mom has a picture of a guy she knew back in the day when he was in Vietnam. The guy was called Slugger.

      This picture is Slugger holding a giant fucking snake, and in the picture, Slugger is wearing a necklace. Of ears. Human fucking ears.

      I once asked her about Slugger. Her response: *deep sigh* Slugger enjoyed Vietnam. That’s what kind of guy he was.

  • Marv

    They also do this fucking fantastic thing that gets my designer boner all swole af where when they’re introducing a major player that they have an interview with they’ll explain who he is and show a picture of him at the time then morph that picture into him sitting in a room talking about it and it just works…it’s fucking great. Whoever came up with that deserves…what am I saying this doc is already going to win all the awards anyway

    • I’m gonna have to track this down. I might tell Mrs. C this is what I want for Christmas.

      • Marv

        $50 on Amazon or $60 to give the money to PBS directly on their site. I think I’m going to go direct with PBS. It’s fucking great.

        • It’s pretty telling when you’re willing to pay more money just to make sure it goes to the right people and not Amazon.

          • Marv

            Yeah I mean, it’s really goddamn good and who doesn’t love PBS anyway?

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            Cretins.

          • It is funny how much high-quality television is getting pumped out nowadays and out of nowhere HERE COMES MOTHERFUCKING PBS TO BLOW ALL THAT SHIT OUT OF THE WATER.

    • Marv

      Room, not row

  • The Professor

    I’m surprised Chris Pratt is in so many episodes in the final season

    • Marv

      NBC paid him a shitload I think, I mean everyone kinda already knew he was the big star by like season three.

      • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

        It seems like they just gave him free reign after a certain point.

  • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

    I want to watch the Vietnam doc but the little bit I’ve seen depressed the hell out of me.

    • Marv

      It’s history man. Somehow I can never find it as depressing as it should be, it’s only interesting to me.

      • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

        It’s depressing how little has changed and how little we’ve learned.

        • Marv

          We kind of did though. In learning a lot more about the way this ramped up and got out of control…it’s far less offensive and disgusting than what we have (at least so far) been doing in the middle east in our lifetimes.

          • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

            I guess we aren’t quite as naive, but the motivations for this shit never change: power and money, and using the poor and downtrodden to do the dirty work.

          • Marv

            That’s just humanity though. I mean I get it’s depressing but at least for me I can ignore that part because it’s a factor in every single history from every single people.

        • Especially considering right before we dove in, we just watched the French strike out at holding the place. Much like how we dove into Afghanistan, we were literally 20 years removed from watching the fucking Soviets muddle through that whole…mess.

          • Marv

            The difference is we didn’t hop in to help the Soviets then watch them peace the fuck out while we stuck around like “Wait what happen?”

          • True. And we also didn’t supply the Viet Cong with a shitload of modern weaponry and say “WELP HOPE THIS DOESN’T COME BACK TO BITE US IN THE ASS LATER.”

          • Marv

            Well kinda…I mean Ho Chi Minh was our homeboy for a long time before he wasn’t anymore. That part is eerily similar like Saddam or Bin Laden.

    • Marv’s hard-sold me on it from paragraph snippets.

      • Marv

        This is one of those rare times where I do kinda miss that other southern weirdo lol

  • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

    Who’s trying to break into the blog?

    THAT’S…THAT’S GOTTA BE KANE P.K.

    • Marv

      Nah.

      • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

        Yeah, he’s probably not smart enough for that.

        • Marv

  • Rudo posted a video of Frida checking on some bunny rabbits and I can only be like 90% focused on the bunnies because I think I hear a certain someone oinking in the background.

    • Marv

      That video of her sitting down is the best thing I’ve ever seen in my whole life ever in the world in life

      • If she actually learns how to shake hands and we get that video we’re gonna mark out so hard we leave our bodies entirely and just turn into ethereal energy.

        • Marv

          LOL, you’re not wrong

          • “So what caused the Rapture, Father O’Herlihy?”

            “And became the 45th president”

  • Marv

    Oh my god! So the North Vietnamese had figured out the easiest way to freak out their enemies was to give each soldier a tiny plastic whistle (probably manufactured by ourselves or an ally) so that as they’d charge they’d all blow into them and cause all this noise and madness and prevent anyone from really being able to figure out where they were coming from or shouting orders….

    Uuuuuuuuugh I’m going to end up watching another episode of this I already know it I am fucking obsessed right now. I’m in the rabbit hole! I’m here! There’s no way out!

  • Mikey

    I’m buzzed but I’m chill. This idiot can’t walk yet thinks he can drink 30 shots before he can go home and he’s a moron on 12.

      Just goon arm him and push him into an uber.

    • That reminds me, I should go purchase alcohol.

    During some battles we stacked B-52’s at 1,000 foot intervals above the field from 7,000 to 35,000 feet…

    I can’t begin to process wtf that must have done. That is….obscene levels of bombing holy shit

    • AND IT DIDN’T WORK HOW DID IT NOT WORK?

      • Marv

        HOW THE FUCK DON’T YOU GIVE UP AFTER 50 DRESDEN’S EVERY SINGLE BATTLE

        • Seriously, that’s some “make Russia tap out” level bombing.

          Fucking Churchill would’ve said “fuck this” after less than half of that.

  • The Professor

    Wow john cena is on johnny karate show

    • Marv

      Lol yep! One of many reasons to actually like that guy.

  • Marv

    Oooof and sometimes when a guy tells a particularly harrowing story he always mentions the guys name “his name was Jimmy Kayama out of Rigby, ID” and then real quick they’ll show his name engraved on the wall.

    Three episodes in and this is giving a strong run at Baseball for my favorite doc ever this is just next level stuff.

  • Marv

    After three days of intense battle where the men had literally been pinned down to the ground when air support finally cleared the opposition and rescue came guys had to forcefully pull the men off the ground because they refused to stand out of fear…

  • This Arrow Season 5 gag reel is ass.

    • Marv

      And I bet all the asses on Arrow are superfarters.

  • Marv

    Yeah that battle just blew my goddamn mind and I’m just realizing that was Battle of Ia Drang aka the first major battle of the war…

    Dear lord this is going to be insanity

  • This Community Season 3 gag reel is much better. 20 minutes? Good grief.

    • Marv

      I like their reels but my favorites I think ever are Parks.

      • Oh, I bet those are amazing. I just randomly came across these on YouTube.

        • Marv

          Oh yeah, especially with Pratt because he does so many physical gags and all of them go wrong the first 10 times or so

    • Fucking tits on my ankle!

      Chevy Chase is weird.

  • Marv

    From the first battle on the Viet Cong pretty much figure out “Oh they like to bomb, hey if we only fight them when standing RIGHT NEXT TO THEM well then…they can’t bomb…”

  • Marv

    “We’re killing these people at a rate of ten to one.”
    “Yeah the problem is the American people don’t care about the ten…they care about the one.”

    I want to start jumping up and down like Tom Cruise I’m so in love with this documentary

  • Marv

    One thing you definitely learn with this doc: Robert McNamara was super no bueno

  • Marv

    One of the guys they follow through all this doesn’t make it and they talk to all his family members and show them back in that time recording home videos (in 1965!!!!) on Christmas Day and stuff and it’s just…boo

  • Marv

    Yep these fuckers got me starting another episode and this one is going to involve me talking purely to myself too jesus just go to bed dude

  • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

    How the fuck is it October already?!?

    • Marv

      That’s a fair question really. The other day it was chilly as hell, I don’t think we even did fall

  • Marv

    LOL well good on them Britain, France and Canada were like “super no thanks” when the war started in earnest and we were asking for allies

    • Hey, South Korea chipped in. And were actually kinda good at it.

    • Comdukakis

      funny considering that France was one of the main reasons we were there in the first place. They decided to ditch their colony and we couldn’t “let’ Vietnam fall to “communists” so we took the mantle up and the rest is history. That’s what we get for helping France over their in the first place. Never get involved in someone else’s colonial shit

  • Marv

    This guy Stan Wilson, who was an Army Major I think, has the greatest quote I think I’ve ever heard about war.

    “The problem with war is that you always fight it the same way you did last time. The victor is always a prisoner to their own experience. What we learned in World War II simply did not apply to Vietnam.”

    • *thinks about World War I*

      YUP THIS CHECKS OUT.

      • Marv

        It sums it all up, prisoner to your own experience wooooow

        • I mean, it’s eerily correct, even now.

          I doubt we’d have been quite as gung-ho about throwing hands in Afghanistan if our last experience with war in the Middle East didn’t go so incredibly well.

    • Marv

      HOLY SHIT THIS GUY IS MADE OF QUOTES!

      “No matter how bad we got hit we never lost the idea that we had a right to victory. It was an oversimplification of the problem which caused us to be arrogant. And frankly it is very hard to dispel ignorance when you maintain ignorance.”

      • Marv

        Blah I fucked that up…dispel ignorance when you maintain arrogance lol

      • The best quote about Vietnam I’ve ever heard, and I hope they wheel it out by the end of that doc, is there were two generals sitting at a table during peace negotiations, one American and one North Vietnamese.

        The American general decides to wave his dick around and goes “Well, you never really beat us on the battlefield.”

        To which the NVA general responds, “This is true. It is also irrelevant.”

  • Marv

    Yeah remember that joke earlier about Johnson calling the guy from CBS and asking if he was trying to fuck him? Cut to two years later when that guy is his friend now and during the first televised Congressional debates about the war CBS goes to reruns of I Love Lucy when things get heavy…wooooooow

    • That’s the kind of stroke Trump couldn’t dream of on his worst day.

  • Marv

    Alright fuck it, it’s 11 I’m so tired, gnight man

    • BOOOOOOOO fuck it, we’re just gonna pick this up again tomorrow.

      • Marv

        Before I forget I have a bit of a theory that the only reason we’ve been the only real big warmaking country since 1945 is because we never really did make any truly major sacrifices in either World War compared to any of the other powers. Anyway goodnight lol

        • Comdukakis

          absolutely. Other nations had foreign troops traipsing across their nation or at the least bombing. Being across the pond, the citizens of the US cut back on stuff, saved metal, bought war bonds and all that jazz but never hunkered down in shelters while planes bombed above, never relocated as their front yard became the front.
