Trailer Thursdays – October 5

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

Last week, he had the trailer for Agatha Christie’s MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS. This week, we have a trailer for another Christie adaptation. This time, it’s CROOKED HOUSE, a story about private detective Charles Hayward (Max Irons), who is invited to solve a gruesome crime where nobody is above suspicion, including Sophia (Stefanie Martini), his client and former lover.

The movie also stars Glenn Close, Christina Hendricks, Terrance Stamp and Gillian Anderson and should have a 2018 release.

We’re into October, which means the release of the second season of the Netflix series STRANGER THINGS is getting ready to drop. Here’s a new trailer for the season released yesterday.

The new season will be available to stream on Halloween.

With the new season of the CW’s DC Comics ARROWVERSE starting next week, they released a weird commercial for Big Belly Burger – the fast food joint of choice of the DC Universe – using clips from past seasons of the show.

Of course, recaps of the new seasons of Supergirl, Arrow, The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow will also begin here next week!

Speaking of DC Comics, we also got a tease of the first character from the third set of downloadable content for INJUSTICE 2 – The Atom!

Finally, Haley Joel Osment, Richard Armitage and Ahna O’Reilly star in SLEEPWALKER, about a grad student (O’Reilly) troubled by bouts of sleepwalking and disturbing nightmares. But when she wakes up after her first night of being monitored at a sleep study lab, the world she lives in seems to have changed in subtle, Twilight-Zone-esque ways.

Sleepwalker doesn’t seem to have a release date yet.

  • I have to poop.

  • ::throws the table across the room: OH SURE THEY SAY THEY ARE GIVING US WAR GAMES BUT ITS ONLY 3 on 3 and its in NXT!!!!!! WHEN IS THE NEXT LARS PODCAST?!?!? I NEED AN OUTLET FOR THIS RAAAAGEEE

    • Best_in_the_World

      Ran here to post this! lol

      • or… you know “hey cool…that might be fun” is another way people could try reacting

      • TatR!

        But we left there not to read that stuff so :/

        • I’m just making a teehee. it’s not even just that place this is how I see a lot of people reacting

          • TatR!

            shrugsmiley

    • TatR!

      but :/

    • In fairness, I only saw one negative comment on the BoD before you posted this.

      • I saw a handful last night. Also similar grips to what I took over the top from other places around the net. more of a jab at that mind set in general than BoD.. I try and not be specifically harsh on them since… I still post there so that would be pretty dumb for me to be LOOK AT THOSE JACKASSES…. then go over there.. hey guys what’s up

    • DAJackson7

      Wha? they are bringing that and Starrcade back? Are they going to put either on the network?

  • I hope that Arrowverse commercial means they are getting things back on the right course and putting more focus back on Big Belly Burger like the glory days of the shows

  • TatR!

    I’d say something about Stranger Things but that might be 3 straight days of me insulting things that are inexplicably universially popular so maybe I’ll pass

    • you don’t……………………….weird. I love that show

      anyway….ep 8……………man………I guess I’m just not as much of a surrealist fan as some. I liked the begining fine, I loved the NIN performance I was ok with how it ended but… didn’t need minutes and minutes of terrible sounds, black and whites pixels and traveling nuclear explosions …………or homeless zombies wondering around a convenience store

      • TatR!

        man how good was that NIN performance. The badass laughing of the chorus, so dark. loved it. Maybe the hype got to that episode. The whole This Is The Water, This Is The Well part stuck with me for ages

        • yeah that part was fine. I was fine space fetishist vomiting up a portal to earth and birthing BOB.. I was fine with Giant releasing goodness or whatever and the fat opera singer helping create Laura and sending it to earth in a tube.. I was like ok with the 5 minutes Giant took to turn off the alarm.

          • TatR!

            it really is hard to write down without it sounding like genuine nonsense

          • Yea I was live watching it last night and everyone was WTF?

          • Anyway I made it through ep 9 and 10 too

          • TatR!

            gotta admit show slipped a bit around that point, seemed aimless

          • really…huh I didn’t find it that way. A I was happy to have actual actors doing actual acting back….But I really loved the Bobby stuff. semi nude naiomi Watts, Dougie taking down Ike. I loved Candie and the fly.

            Also how the Mathew Lillard stuff all tied into Briggs is interesting and Lilllard was actually good… at acting.. who knew. plus come on Gordon on a date

    • ProjectBlue

      Eh, I enjoyed it but it didn’t seem to be universally popular last time

    • Just avoid these sorts of shows and you’ll be all the better. Remember, if it’s something that people on the internet are talking about, then it’s probably best to avoid it entirely.

      • TatR!

        But that’s not true! The internet usually gets it right! That’s why it’s so jarring when something like that comes along

    • Fun_Matt_Indeed

      You don’t get 80’s American nostalgia!

      By the way, I got absolutely lambasted by my friends this weekend for suggesting the show would have been better as 5 episodes instead of 8. Good lord, they wouldn’t shut up about it.

      • I disagree with you too.. The show was pretty well paced. I could hear arguments for 7 but 5…..nonsense talk sir…nonsense talk

  • TatR!

    I have just finished GoT Season 5. Shocking times all round.

  • Fun_Matt_Indeed

    Beyond the Sea is playing. I love that song.

    • Darin or Spacey?

      • Fun_Matt_Indeed

        Darin. Although I like Spacey’s too.

  • Fun_Matt_Indeed

    Hey Geeks. Turns out I actually lost a pound instead of gaining 3 like I thought. I’m not a fat ass after all.

    • Hoss Diet

    • ProjectBlue

      Ice cream, what isn’t it good for?

      • Fun_Matt_Indeed

        It’s amazing! Doctors don’t know anything!

    • I have most assuredly gone the opposite direction despite my heavy working out to try and combat my week of over eating

      • Fun_Matt_Indeed

        It’ll get better. I ate a pint of ice cream, ran up and down 6 flights of stairs, power walked across a hospital, did 100 crunches, and 75 pushups, and I was alright.

        • I ran 7 miles before my full slab rib and fries dinner but still feeling it today. She’s back Saturday so back on the diet Sunday

    • DAJackson7

      Weight fluctuates around 4 lbs every day…you probably are the same

  • RudoWakening

    Geeks. How are we today?

    • Fun_Matt_Indeed

      Not fat!

    • fat

    • how is the ankle?

      • RudoWakening

        Much better. Barely sore but I’ll be on the elliptical after work

    • TatR!

      Feeling a bit fat. Been feeding my cold pretty hard. Probably undid the good work of having the new treadmill this past month

      • RudoWakening

        I ALWAYS eat like garbage when I don’t feel good. I know I should do the opposite of that but I only want junk food

    • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

      Busy

      • RudoWakening

        Same

  • Mikey

    Cannot wait for some Kara Danvers.

  • DAJackson7

    Haley Joel Osmond is still around?

    • yep he seems to be doing more comedy stuff. I think trying to get in the LA comedy scene (not stand up) but like he was on Comedy Bang Bang the tv show a lot. Does some smaller independent work. Seems like a good guy.. just unfortunate how his face grew.

      • DAJackson7

        I seriously haven’t seen him since that movie were he is a robot with a teddy bear and damn that movie was sad

  • ProjectBlue

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/education/wp/2017/09/28/racist-propaganda-librarian-rejects-melania-trumps-gift-of-dr-seuss-books/?utm_term=.57c115528d97 People have way too much time on their hands. Wait til this asshole finds the weird nudie books Seuss did

    • it’s crazy that someone can not take a step back and go …….wait……..am I making Trump the baby face here??? holy shit I am…. WHAT AM I DOING????

      • ProjectBlue

        Imagine a world though where the worst thing Trump and Co did was give out Dr. Seuss books

        • Also am I missing something.. every Seuss story I can think of is pretty much about acceptance

          • ProjectBlue

            In a different article they were saying Cat in the Hat was based on a black elevator operator Seuss knew, so that pretty much makes him Hitler I guess

          • ::insert Scanners gif::

  • DAJackson7

    The beisball last night was entertaining. Just hope the Diamondbacks can beat the Dodgers now.

    • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

      Bring it!

    • yeah I should have watched more of the game but when it seemed the Dbacks were pulling away again I went back to twin peaks

  • Mikey

    LETS GO TRIBE.

    • Fun_Matt_Indeed

      FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK YES.

    • LET’S GO YANKEES! Don’t embarrass me!

  • Repeat!

  • Comdukakis

    speaking of weight I was pleasantly surprised that my weight at the doctor was the same as the last time I saw him (maybe a year or 14 months, I don’t go to the Dr. much). I don’t own a scale and was sure I’d put on 15 pounds. He thinks I sprained my MCL, going to give it 6 weeks to heal and if it doesn’t get better then we do an MRI and possibly surgery

  • Diddly: Basic B****

    If I’m buying tickets to a NXT house show this morning, does that mean I have to leave the Geekery?

    • Yup

      • Comdukakis

        🙁

        • Leave these questions to the pros, Com.

          • Comdukakis

            I never knew intolerance was a geek quality

          • Fun_Matt_Indeed

            Well, now you know.

          • Comdukakis

            and that’s one to grow on

    • Comdukakis

      nope.

    • Yes we advise you not to post here from the house show so you will need to leave us for awhile

  • I watched Seinfeld before Seinfeld last night.

    • Comdukakis

      i’m pissed TBS took it off evenings. I used to like Family Guy and American Dad (I never cared for Cleveland show or Bob’s Burgers) but I’m just over them.

    • Diddly: Basic B****

      What’s the deal with Mister E Mahn’s TV viewing habits?

    • how was it?

      • I’d give it an “it was fine” but then claw that back just a little bit with an “I suppose.”

  • Comdukakis

    so ya’ll know I’m a liberal guy on pretty much everything. Going to throw something out there. Is it time the Dems and liberals in general stop hanging their hat on wide open immigration policies and tolerance of illegals? It’s the one issue I’m more conservative on. Maybe growing up in California had an impact. I have no problem with the Dreamer program but I’d also have no issue closing our borders for the most part (beyond refugee situations where people are in imminent physical danger) and in rapidly deporting those found to be illegals. And it starts (here’s why I leave our GOP friends) with harsh penalties for those who are caught hiring illegals. Kill the incentive to come here.

    I think it would help the Dems long and short term and I honestly wouldn’t feel bad about it

    • DAJackson7

      I’d agree with that. It’s not like you or me could just up and move to Canada and get a job, benefits, etc…..

      • Comdukakis

        and I think the political fallout is a net positive. Maybe you pull over some working class whites. I doubt you lose large swathes of the Hispanic vote (which is already low turnout). Inevitably the Dems will still be seen as the reasonable ones as the GOP tries to outflank the Dems proposals on the right and so most Hispanic voters stick with the Dems

    • I have always hated that this issue became EVERYONE HAS TO BE ALLOWED IN AND IF YOU TRY AND ENFORCE THE LAW YOU ARE A RACIST BIGOT AND THE DEVIL!!!!!

      Like.. I get.. that those people are going to be on that side of the issue but… I have nothing against Hispanic people. Yet I think it is crazy we can’t have a rational conversation about knowing who is coming into our country and having control over who is coming into our country.

      If we need to make legal immigration cheaper and easier I’m open to that but I think the people coming here, staying here and working here should be part of the system.

      • Comdukakis

        yep. I avoid talking about the issue with my liberal friends who I worked with in politics. It’s like I suddenly grow horns and a tail and carry a pitchfork

        • Of all the stupid shit going in this country this has always been one of those where I throw up my hands with really… really… these are my choices.. sheriff joe or open the flood gates and you are a terrible person if you have a different opinion

          • Comdukakis

            there are others though. Israel for one. Either I unequivocally support every thing they do (with all their atrocities and poking of the bear policies) or I support terrorism. There IS middle ground

    • The Professor

      I always felt that if you go after the businesses rather than the people then it would just naturally sort out on its own. It’s like with war on drugs. Don’t go after the people using drugs. Go after the drug dealers.

      • Comdukakis

        yep, but both parties think the issue is to their advantage. Dems think it gets the Hispanic vote, GOP thinks it gets the “racist/far right vote” That’s why they like to talk rather than do something. Getting those who hire would have far more impact than any wall

    • Fun_Matt_Indeed

      Racist.

    • Miko363

      Or at a minimum, make the legal immigration process quicker and less unwieldy. Get more people paying taxes.

      But yes, just as the Republican party has gone too far embracing the fringe right, the Democratic party needs to accept that they need to be a little moderate on certain topics to get votes.

  • The Professor

    Finished Parks and Rec last night.
    Few thoughts:
    1) Season 7 wasn’t really needed. Almost everything important that happened in season 7 could have been predicted in season 6 finale.
    2) I am glad Gary/Terry/Larry finally stopped being the butt of the joke in the finale.
    3) Why was there a documentary crew? They should have used that more.
    4) Season 3 was probably the best season.
    5) Ron was easily the best character. Almost every scene he was in was great.
    6) Worst main character was Mark. Glad he was gone after season 2.

    • Comdukakis

      it would have made sense to end it after the unity concert. But NBC offered a shit ton of money. I think it was a fun final season though with the future angle. Jerry/Gary already was being shown as having this awesome life the last 3 seasons I think. It made the weird hate for him that much weirder (except Ben).

    • Fun_Matt_Indeed

      I liked season 7 because we got one more season. The finale was great too, but yes, it certainly could have ended with the Unity concert in 6.

      • The Professor

        I looked at the ratings for season 7 and they were really bad. Most episodes were in the 2+ million range. The finale only got about 4 million.
        It didn’t help that they aired the episodes back to back

        • Fun_Matt_Indeed

          The show was notoriously low rated anyway.

          And yes, they sped through season 7.

        • Comdukakis

          it was a prestige thing. NBC knew their ratings were in the tank. They just wanted a “prestige” show to have while they filled their weekly primetime lineup with the cheapest shit possible

    • Mikey

      I barely remember anything from Season 7.

      I agree that Season 3 is the best.

  • Facts

    Today is my Friday. I am giddy with delight.

    • Comdukakis

      yesterday was mine, but then I have to work Saturday morning. Thank god Michigan/Michigan St. is a night game

    • Tomorrow is a short day with Monday being the holiday. And then the next three weekends after that are 3 days for me also.

  • Diddly: Basic B****

    Working from home and just downloaded the Battlefront II Beta!

    • Fun_Matt_Indeed

      Doesn’t sound like work, he says, typing in the Geekery.

    • Facts

      It better be better than Battlefront.

    • DAJackson7

      I’m curios how the single player will work and how much will vehicle battles, cause those are the two things i want. At least it won’t be as bad as the first one

  • My birthday is in just over a month here. I usually don’t accept gifts, but this year I’m considering reaching out to people for some dress socks. I’m running low.

    • jesus… look at Mister going crazy with his big birthday gala

    • I just found these great dress socks on Amazon. Marino is the brand. May be too showy.

      • I actually like flashy socks, but I’m not sure it’s appropriate to ask for that for a gift.

  • ProjectBlue

    There’s a shit load of people moving around this district so far this year. Like, have a kid on a Monday at one school, get him again on a Friday at a different school. Sucks for the kid because I use the same lessons on a weekly basis

    • Devin Harris

      What do you mean different school?

      • ProjectBlue

        I’m split 3 ways

        • ProjectBlue

          So Whoever I have for computers on Monday, he’s moved and starts at new school mid-week, gets the same lesson Friday

          • Devin Harris

            Ah, you teach computers. That makes more sense. I thought you were the history teacher and that would be weird to switch schools if that was the case.

  • Alright…. More Twin Peaks I guess.. not feeling more Bob Hope book at the moment

    • Comdukakis

      I finished my Cash bio and am starting a Jeffrey Toobin book Called the Oath about the Supreme Court and Obama

      • Johnny Cash bio? by who? I have only read his autobio Cash

        • Comdukakis

          Johnny Cash the Life by Hillburn

          It’s not a pretty picture and it takes aim at some of the lies and myths that Cash pushed in his life and autobiographies. At the same time it’s reverential towards his music. I found it highly interesting

          • no thanks… Cash is someone I’ll stick with his version of himself. I mean it’s not like he doesn’t admit to all the drug and booze problems.

            I’m totally fine keeping some people on their pedistal

          • Comdukakis

            fair enough. I had never read anything and honestly didn’t know much about the subject beyond his actual music. I bought it as a bargain at Barnes and Noble. He was like most musicians….flawed. Drugs, cheating on his wife, neglecting his kids (who forgave him unequivocally, Ironically something John never did for his own father), standard musician stuff. But he also comes across as a caring person, a fantastic artist, a tortured soul, etc.

  • The Professor

    what is usually considered the best episodes of parks and rec?

    • Comdukakis

      I like the one where Leslie accidentally shoots Ron. I liked a lot of the ones with Paul Rudd running against Leslie also. Oh and the one where Rob Lowe gets hospitalized with the flu and “MUST STOP POOPING”

    • Fun_Matt_Indeed

      Difficult. I think Snake Juice is probably my favorite.

      • Comdukakis

        other than season one I think my least favorite was the one where Tommy “promoted” Leslie’s appearance before the chamber of commerce and made it all about him. It took Tommy from being selfish but funny and likeable to me just wondering why any of them even put up with his shit. Thankfully they managed to pull the character back to likeable after that

        • Fun_Matt_Indeed

          He did it because Entertainment 720 was failing. It was desperation. Leslie forgave him.

          • Comdukakis

            she did, but for some reason (maybe it was the political aspect) it just seemed a step too far to me and inexcusable.

        • The Professor

          I didn’t like the Ron vs leslie season 7 episodes. It just came out of nowhere and seemed so random.

          • Comdukakis

            did it? because one of the most interesting aspects was that someone as anti-government as Ron could be friends and admire someone who believed as much in the power of good government and spending for the public as Leslie. I honestly don’t remember why they feuded but it made sense on a certain level. Too bad Lucy Lawless stopped being on the show

          • Fun_Matt_Indeed

            I thought that episode was great.

          • The Professor

            The one where they are trapped is fine. But the other 3, yuck

          • Fun_Matt_Indeed

            Yeah, they did seem to make that linger.

    • Tranquilo Baby Tranquilo

      The one where Rob Lowe uses everybody’s full name.

    • The Professor

      I do really enjoy the Tammy episodes.

  • Diddly: Basic B****

    My buddy’s wife is inducing labor this morning. My friend just sent a pic of Indiana Jones shutting his eyes and saying “don’t look!” and I laughed because we had to watch that shit in high school health class

    • DAJackson7

      I think i missed that day, or, knowing my school, they never showed it.

      • I’m still waiting for “the talk” with my parents

        • Facts

          There is a giant bird that delivers a giant egg with a baby in it. Come on! You are old enough to know this.

          • yea I googled it myself… just saying the talk didn’t happen

        • DAJackson7

          i think the closest i came to that was in a Lowe’s bathroom and i made fun of my dad for getting stuck with the urinal closest to floor and he just said ‘well some of us need it”

    • And that video didn’t even begin to accurately portray the gore that you actually witness in the trenches.

    • Marv

      It’s the least funny thing ever actually.

    • Comdukakis

      oh god that was horrific. my wife had a c section thank god. I was NOT going to look at that torn up vagina as a 8 pound object popped through

  • I’ll give Lynch credit .. he has set up a situation where children throwing a baseball around has me going……oh god how many of them are going to get hit by a car

  • I have a surprisingly strong attraction to Amanda Seyfried

    • Comdukakis

      she’s cute

    • Fun_Matt_Indeed

      I mean, she’s attractive. Not that crazy.

      • yea but like she has grown on me of late.. I think it was when we watched momma mia. and now with her in Twin Peaks

        • Fun_Matt_Indeed

          Wasn’t she in the film about Linda Lovelace?

          • yeah didn’t see that one yet

          • Fun_Matt_Indeed

            Boobies perhaps??!!!

    • Diddly: Basic B****

      Her boobs can predict the weather!

  • Devin Harris

    No Madea trailer?

    • Marv

      Total accident man, there are only five spots for trailers and at least five of them have to be white people.

      • Devin Harris

        I’ve started to notice a pattern when it comes to what trailers make the Geekery cut

        • …………yeah I won’t push my luck..::backs away from trailer talk::

        • Fun_Matt_Indeed

          Racism at the geekery!

        • Damn dude. I’m sorry…

          • Devin Harris

            I’m just joking around

        • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

          #allgeeksmatter

    • Fun_Matt_Indeed

      OH LORT!

  • Fun_Matt_Indeed

    And there’s Supergirl with her quirky facial expressions.

    • Mikey

      Ah it’s great.

  • Good news all you Iron Fist lovers! he will be in season 2 of Luke Cage

    • Marv

      Lovely.

    • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

      That’s good. They should ditch the actual show and re-brand the second season of Luke Cage as Heroes For Hire

  • Comdukakis

    apparently Tanya Tucker is a bitch who won’t let a song of her’s be on spotify. It’s the only song on all six Cash American albums that is “blacked out”

    • Tranquilo Baby Tranquilo

      She wants to get paid for her music? What a bitch.

      • Comdukakis

        she would get paid. Now whether it’s enough is a matter of opinion but something vs. nothing is getting paid. It’s just an odd fact that six albums worth of mostly covers and she’s the only who said no

        • Tranquilo Baby Tranquilo

          Spotify pays pennies to artists. She has the right to control what she created. You don’t have a right to get it in whatever format you find most convenient.

          • Comdukakis

            Never said she didn’t have the right. I just think it’s short sighted. She might get a few new fans since Cash is much more popular than she is these days And having a single song blacked out just sucks for the album.

          • Tranquilo Baby Tranquilo

            You just called her a bitch for being ‘short sighted’.

          • Comdukakis

            yep and I admit that was wrong.

          • Tranquilo Baby Tranquilo

            Please replace bitch with smart businessperson.

          • Comdukakis

            I edited it out but it’s not smart. She literally has ZERO career beyond taking shows at military bases with captive audiences that don’t buy tickets. She gets paid by the government. why not try to find a new audience? And why not have enough respect for the integrity of the Cash album (which absolutely was a concept with each song placed and picked in specific order to make a statement)

          • Tranquilo Baby Tranquilo

            Maybe Rick Rubin should’ve thought of that when he wrote up the contract.

          • Comdukakis

            do you need permission to cover a song if you pay the royalty rate? I never thought you did on an album. streaming services are different

          • Stop responding to him

          • Comdukakis

            my bad

    • I don’t know if someone is a bitch for not having a deal in place with spotify

      • Comdukakis

        so you are telling me that every other artist/estate that he covered was fine with allowing their songs on the Cash albums on spotify, but somehow she is the one in the right? What is she getting out of NOT doing it? She gets paid, albeit not much if I understand the math with spotify

        • … you are correct ::goes get his torch and pitchfork::

          • Comdukakis

            that seems a little over the top. Remember I only pull that out for immigration debates with liberal friends

        • Fun_Matt_Indeed

          Maybe Spotify pays way too low, and she’s the only one not okay with being taken advantage of?

          • Comdukakis

            it’s tanya tucker. she has had no career beyond a reality show and doing concerts at military bases for 3 decades.

        • Yeah god forbid she have her own opinion because it inconveniences YOU.

          • Comdukakis

            ok bitch was the wrong word and I should know better, however I’ve been consistent in my opinion on use of old songs whether on DVD sets, reruns, spotify, whatever that you are cutting off your nose to spite your face when turn down this stuff. you might make some new fans and you get at least something.

            But again it is her right. I just disagree, the same way I disagree with artists/record companies wanting too much for reruns of WKRP or WWE themes or whatever

    • DAJackson7

      She would just blow the money on blow though

      • Comdukakis

        like I said below I don’t get artists with zero career who turn down opportunities to expose their music to new fans through tv shows, DVD sets, WWE themes, spotify, whatever.

    Christopher Walken needs to come out with a CD of nothing but him singing Katy Perry hits.

  • Tranquilo Baby Tranquilo

    Yesterdays comics were a mixed bag. Vader was good as they are clearly setting up some interesting stuff. Avengers was also good, even though I find most of the champions (especially Ms. Marvel) to be extremely annoying. Star Wars read like they abruptly changed the writer and just threw some stuff in there before a new direction next month.

    • Tranquilo Baby Tranquilo

      Bon Jovi, The Cars, Dire Straits, MC5 and The Zombies.

    • Fun_Matt_Indeed

      All of them should go. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (much like WWE HOF) is arbitrary and subjective, and has zero rules for getting in.

    • Comdukakis

      honestly the only one I care enough about to argue would be Depeche Mode. Long overdue, highly influential

    • RudoWakening

      The Cars
      Dire Straits
      Link Wray

      Seriously, The Smiths need to be in

      that won’t stop the story from spreading on social media about the horrors of abortion somehow

  • The Silver Fox

    I think this may be the first time The Moody Blues have ever been nominated, despite their first album coming out 52 years ago.

    • RudoWakening

      They’re my uncle’s all-time favourite band

    • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

    • Tranquilo Baby Tranquilo

      Nights in White Satin is a crazy tune.

      • The Silver Fox

        Especially the full album version with the poem at the end.

  • RudoWakening

    I may have to work Saturday. Blerg.

  • The Silver Fox

    Someone not on the list this year that really deserves to be in is Chic. Nile Rodgers and Bernie Edwards are both legends, and where would hip hop be without “Good Times.”

  • Comdukakis

    seems like a good day to play a lot of nba2k

    I was reading below and I agree with Mahn. Socks are a great gift. You can’t have too many socks. Or pairs of boxers.

    • Devin Harris

      or plain t-shirts

      • Dwayne

        That too.

      • Diddly: Basic B****

          Mmm. I decided my favourite brand is Gildan Softstyle Ringspun. They’re my go-to plain shirt

    • TatR!

      When I was young I didn’t appreciate it much because it was like a waste of a christmas gift from some relative, it’s like my mum will just buy me socks anyway so. But later in life if I get them I’m like thank god, I’ve been wearing my same last pair of holey socks for a week now

    • I have socks on my Amazon wish list

  • Thursday should be “Agree with Mahn Day”

      You the Mahn!

  • Tranquilo Baby Tranquilo

    I went to comic con in Philly once, back when it was called Wizard World. The girl I was with wanted to see the panel with Faith from Buffy. I mostly avoided making eye contact with Virgil and the guy that played the beastmaster and scoffed at how overpriced the back issues were. I’m also pretty sure I was Hurricane and Dee Snyder’s kid walking around on the floor but I can’t swear to it. This was easily 12 years ago.

            They can pull your log files but no one really cares unless they really have to care

          • Dwayne

            Yeah. There would have to be a specific reason to do that.

      Brothers In Arms is awesome

  • Facts
  • Devin Harris

    The only rock I can get into is the hard stuff I can listen to when working out like Iron Man, China White, or Enter Sandman

    • Dwayne

      70s-90s hard rock is pretty dope.

      • Devin Harris

        I used to work in a restaurant and they played the pop station to keep everyone semi happy. It was all Creed and that kind of stuff. I never understood the words and could never get into it. I don’t think I know any rock that’s not 25 years old or more

  • Mikey

    My favorite Bangels song is “Eternal Flame”

    • Tranquilo Baby Tranquilo

      In Your Room is a 5* banger.

    • it’s better than Egyptian but is no manic monday or hazy shade of winter

    • Devin Harris

      I go Manic Monday

      • Dwayne

        Prince wrote that.

        • I love how much shit he wrote for others.. especially for women

        • Devin Harris

          What’s her face…The one that was in The Last Dragon. That was his girl. For that time at least. He seemed to discard them like old clothes

          • Dwayne

            Vanity. Yeah she had the sexy girl group Vanity 6. Then he started dealing with Apolonia from the Purple Rain movie and she took over the girl group.

    • Fun_Matt_Indeed

      The Bangels overall are very underrated.

      • still they aren’t the go gos

        • Fun_Matt_Indeed

          I think they were better musically than the Go-Gos.

    • The Silver Fox

      Hazy Shade of Winter

    • Comdukakis

      I have their greatest hits. But yes gogos are better.

      • Fun_Matt_Indeed

        I disagree. I think as musicians, the Bangels were superior.

        • Comdukakis

          I have no opinion on musicianship. Go-gos are just catchier

          • Fun_Matt_Indeed

            Got’cha.

          • Comdukakis

            My knowledge of musicianship is very low so my opinions on music are always just based on what is catcher to me. Good guitar, bad guitar, off beat drums, I have no clue

  • Fun_Matt_Indeed

    I had to work just now.

    WORK.

      • TatR!

        so did you see the other photos peyton

  • Fun_Matt_Indeed

    Speaking of Prince, I would consider his Super Bowl halftime show the greatest of all-time.

    It rained. And he sang Purple Rain. And he played the shit out of his guitar. And he went all out. And he had dancers with 12 inch heels dancing and they didn’t slip and kill themselves. It was amazing. I wish I would have seen one of his shows before he died.

    • The Silver Fox

      Prince or U2

      • u2’s is helped by the whole 9/11 emotions.
        I would put Bruce up about u2 but.. i haven’t seen the u2 one in awhile

        • Fun_Matt_Indeed

          Both of those are good. Both probably top 5.

    • he pulled out some foo fighters because he was like.. I’ll play whatever I feel like

    • Devin Harris

      He was an amazing performer. Maybe the best of his generation

    • Dwayne

      Yeah he was a fantastic performer.

    • TatR!

      yeah I wish I’d seen Prince live too. He did a big arena tour here about ten years back, I remember tickets being ludicrously expensive but I guess you gotta pay it. He also did these little pop up shows where he’d just show up at some London club at midnight on a few hours notice. Fucking london

    • I saw McCartney sing Hey Jude because I was working in a bar and they closed service for a few minutes so the staff could watch that.

      Otherwise I don’t think that I’ve ever seen a Superbowl halftime show.

    • oddly enough my drunken YouTubeing way past my bed time after Petty died lead me to the prince petty guitar gently weeps.. which then led to Petty superbowl then prince superbowl…. then.. why not springsteen superbowl. so yes I can say Prince is the best

    • Marv

      The rain makes it. Without the weather turning to shit that performance was super forgettable (I’m not a Prince guy at allllllll) but with the rain it was fucking incredible

      • Also it helped that at the end of the day the right guy was holding up the trophy so everyone has warm fuzzy memories of the night

        • Marv

          I don’t know about that part I didn’t watch any of the game I only saw the performance days later lol

        • Fun_Matt_Indeed

          Yep. Marvin Harrison.

      • Fun_Matt_Indeed

        I agree that the rain put it over the top, but Prince was killing it on guitar too. I doubt I would have thought it as forgettable without the rain.

        • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

          I always find it funny that people seem to forget he’s AMAZING on the guitar.

          • That’s why the while my guitar gently weeps performance seemed to get so much attention because he just destroys

          • Fun_Matt_Indeed

            One of the greatest recorded guitar performances ever.

          • It’s not even just the musical performance. its the mannerisms and everything he’s not just playing the guitar.. he”s playing the room

          • AND THEN…. he makes the guitar disappear

          • I watched that after he died about 100 times.

          • Fun_Matt_Indeed

            One of the best, in my opinion.

          • Dwayne

            Definitely.

  • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

    U2, Prince, Michael Jackson and Lady Gaga are top 4 Super Bowl performances for me

    • Gaga was pretty good.

      Bruno was really good too

    • Marv

      I just watched that Michel performance the other night. Holy shit even 25 years later when he pops up and just stands there and soaks it in for FOUR STRAIGHT MINUTES….it’s still goosebump inducing.

    • Mikey

      Gaga was fucking awesome.

      • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

        Me and my wife watched the doc she put out on Netflix. It’s really good

    • Fun_Matt_Indeed

      These are all great.

    • The Silver Fox

      Michael Jackson, U2, Prince, Bruce Springsteen, Bruno Mars, Lady Gaga for me. Far cry from the Up with People or Disney produced shows of the 70’s and 80’s.

  • TatR!

    Prince did frustrate me because he was such a guitar god and he didn’t utilise it nearly enough. Late on you’d get album after album of funk and rnb while his guitar gathers dust

    • Marv

      I never had any clue he even played guitar until a few years ago.

      • Me neither. When he died basically.

        I only knew him as the symbol guy and from 1999. I thought he was a novelty act.

        • Marv

          Yeah I knew him as the guy that played songs on Batman that even at nine years old I knew were lame lol

    • Fun_Matt_Indeed

      I agree with this. He should have done a funky rock album.

      • I enjoyed his last handful of albums

      • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

        A Prince/Lenny Kravitz collab would’ve been awesome

  • TatR!

    Gold is one of my favourite tracks, it has the epic chorus and the guitar solo that sounds like Prince is playing on top of a mountain

  • Stanley Jordan is the best at guitar.

  • Fun_Matt_Indeed

    Just watched Gaga Five Foot Two last night (still have 20 minutes left, actually), but it’s great. And it just makes me love Gaga more, and actually feel completely sympathetic for a multi-millionaire star.

    • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

      Yeah, I had no idea she was in so much pain

      • meat dresses aren’t comfortable

      • Fun_Matt_Indeed

        Yeah, it’s pretty clear she has both physical and emotional problems. I haven’t finished it yet, but so far I’ve come away from it thinking she needs to take a break for a year or two.

        • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

          She’s at a point where she could go away for a couple of years and people will still remember her and wait for a comeback

          • Fun_Matt_Indeed

            Absolutely. Her crowd is now the late 20’s to 40’s crowd. They’ll wait 2 years. They aren’t teenagers.

  • I really liked the footage from the SNL anniversary after party that came out after prince died. this is crap quality https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wpjoojr6qCo
    I think the best thing Is maya rudolph clearly having the night of her life…. and I think wondering if she gets to go to bed with Prince…worst part is drunk sweat Jimmy Fallon hogging the spotlight

          Well, upvote it then, asshole.

  • Another person good in Twin Peaks…………..Jim Belushi

    • TatR!

      yeah those two are great

  • When the government announced the $15 minimum wage there were a bunch of people that I saw reposting “studies have shown that increases to the minimum wage do not affect pricing.” But literally every place in the food court downstairs has since raised their prices.

    • Marv

      When they forced $15 minimum wage in Seattle most places raised prices and completely eliminated positions. So now every barista is making $15 an hour but they’re only working 15 hours a week it’s worked out just wonderfully

      • yeah it has to be raised some to keep up with cost of living but the All these companies have all the money so they should pay us more cause they are all rich fat cats hording their money and it won’t make a bit of difference to them…. doesn’t work out

        • TatR!

          nationalise starbucks

        • Marv

          I just like the idiocy in the thinking, “Like hey if we give everyone more money they’ll have more money!” Or…everything will raise in price to adjust and you’ll be just as poor as you were before. The solution isn’t to make more money as a barista it’s to get a better job than barista.

          • TatR!

            There’s a balance. People need a certain amount of money to live. Even gasp baristas.

          • But it trickles up. Even if you don’t get your hours cut, everything that you buy becomes more expensive so the increase to your salary is never really seen.

          • TatR!

            Prices go up anyway though right? Often times these increases in wages are just trying to catch up with price inflation as it is

          • Wages never go up with inflation. Well, almost never. But when salaries go up, you damn well know prices are getting jacked.

          • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

            In my case the balance was firing our front desk and replacing it with an automated menu because I just wasn’t going to pay some $15 to answer a phone.

          • When the city announced they were requiring fast food joints to pay $15/hour, I did the math… and it played out that a cashier at McDonald’s would make more than my reporters.

            I mentioned this to the publisher. He laughed. Suggested maybe they could apply to do that instead.

          • Marv

            Yeah that was exactly the position we were in. I couldn’t in good conscience have the girl answering the phone making as much as someone that had gone to college.

          • I gotta get out of this business

            At my job, when they made some adjustments to how everyone is getting paid, the line leads out on the production floor ended up making more than the manufacturing specialist (where I’m currently at) and the quality department. needless to say some people were perturbed

          • Fun_Matt_Indeed

            Yep. This is one thing I’m actually kind of conservative on. Unless the national min wage goes up, and they put some rule that you can’t lose hours based on pay or something ludicrous like that, there’s no point in raising it.

      Maybe it’s based on a 40 hour base pay?

    • At my old job I was on salary but overtime eligible and the calc that they used for my hourly was just x / 52 / 37.5

      So just divide by weeks per year, and then hours per week.

      Dunno how anyone else does it and at this job I’m not overtime eligible.

    Netflix is raising two of its pricing tiers for US subscribers beginning next month, Mashable reports. The standard tier, which allows subscribers to watch on two screens at once, will be bumped up from $9.99 to $10.99 per month. The premium tier, which is available in Ultra HD and allows users to watch on up to four screens, will go up from $11.99 to $13.99. The Basic $7.99 per month plan will remain the same…..I think $20’s my magic number to dump and torrent again.

    • TatR!

      £10 would be fine for me. Any over that and I’d prob bail too. Our internet connections been dodgy lately streaming as it is

  • Rick “The Hot Take King” Ross

    –The problem with competing streaming services is that they go against the original purpose. People were tired of paying for multiple services consisting mostly of programming they weren’t interested in and resorted to piracy as a result.

    The reason Netflix and Spotify are successful is because they make it easier to pay for content rather than pirate it.

    Now with exclusive deals, consumers will be forced back into going the illegal route to get their content.

    • Marv

      Maybe young people. The rest of us will just continue paying for the convenience.

      • TatR!

        Yeah I’d pay for the convenience. I pay for premium sports channels, Netflix, Spotify and Amazon. The days when I can be bothered to find a stream, or find a decent download on some torrent site (decent versions of most of which are blocked in this country now anyway), then add to a USB and stick on our digital file player… meh.

        • Marv

          I’m sure college kids or whatever will go back to stealing but as far as I can tell they’ve always been stealing anyway. Every young person I know uses their parents Netflix account lol

        • Rick “The Hot Take King” Ross

          Is it really convenient to have to watch your shows via multiple services? Piracy today isn’t like the mid-2000’s. You could have one single interface for everything.

          • TatR!

            well it’s just a few clicks of the clicker. I don’t have my Amazon in a seperate room to my Netflix

          • Rick “The Hot Take King” Ross

            That’s too many clicks, especially for millennials.

          • TatR!

            Don’t bash millennials it’s hacky!

          • Rick “The Hot Take King” Ross

            I bash boomers a lot more.

      • Rick “The Hot Take King” Ross

        Paying for multiple streaming services when you only want to watch one show? It’s not sustainable.

        • Marv

          What service only has one show?

          • Rick “The Hot Take King” Ross

            Meaning if you’re happy with Hulu but still want to watch House of Cards. You’d end up having to get a Netflix subscription even though you only want to watch one show on it.

          • Marv

            Yeah so…get Netflix then? I like that all in of this the idea of just going without something isn’t even considered.

          • Marv

            Not you particularly just in general with this stuff. “Welp it’s expensive now so guess I have to outright steal it. Lord knows I’m much to special to go five minutes without the thing I want.” It’s so funny and so entitled.

          • Rick “The Hot Take King” Ross

            I think the issue is people don’t want to pay for stuff they don’t use. For years, consumers asked for the ability to decide what channels they can subscribe to but cable companies would never go for it. Now the cable companies are hurting because we have actual choice.

            But the streaming services are making the same mistakes which will bring us back to square one.

          • Marv

            You can buy the seasons of House of Cards on Amazon. There are options just none as easy and convenient as the service that no one wants to pay for because it…costs money.

            People want to steal stuff and look for every excuse to make their “piracy” morally justified.

          • TatR!

            hm yeah you can probably buy the entire box of House Of Cards for about 3 months Netflix subscription

          • Rick “The Hot Take King” Ross

            If that were the case, nobody would subscribe to Netflix or Spotify. These two services have brought down piracy more so than any active government campaign.

            The reason why piracy declined was legitimate streaming is more attractive than piracy because they are affordable and convenient. It had nothing to do with “not wanting to pay for something”.

          • Marv

            This started with you saying if too many services came around people would be forced to pirate lol

          • Rick “The Hot Take King” Ross

            And they will. People don’t mind paying for one service but very few will want to subscribe to five.

          • Rick “The Hot Take King” Ross

            I want everything in one place.

          • Marv

            Well that’s just never ever going to happen.

            It happened before cable companies started getting greedy.

          • TatR!

            There’s a ton of great stuff on Netflix though, you’d get your moneys worth. There won’t be many people who only want to watch HoC and if they did they’re missing out

          • Rick “The Hot Take King” Ross

      What’s worse is the behaviors just don’t change over the years, seeing kids from k-4, the good are good, the middle are ok, the pains in the asses stay that way. Thinking back to Stooges’ graduation, that extends all the way through. Between tutoring, subbing, interning, I ended up seeing most of the kids in their graduating class at one time or another between their kindergarten year and say grade 3. There was very little “Oh wow, didn’t see that coming” in either direction, good or bad, smart or dumb over the 13 years of school. Maybe 4 kids of 300+? And one of those I had that was barely literate in 4th grade and told me the X-Games were to prepare us for the coming race war. He apparently turned it around and got some scholarships for college.

    A former couple helped fund their child’s private education by trafficking women into a “sexual conveyor belt” of prostitution.

    Malaysian Hong Chin, 45, ran a pit bull dog breeding kennel on a country estate in Esher, Surrey, where his ex-partner Li Wei Gao, 44, lived in a converted barn with their daughter.

    At the same time, the pair raked in more than £100,000 through the trade in trafficking women for sex work until the operation was shut down by Sussex Police.

    I guess the pit bulls could come in handy but that seems like two high maintenance jobs….I think I’d just have home schooled

    • I know a guy who bought a pit bull with the intent of fighting him. Then he got attached to it and just kept it as a pet. That was a while ago and the dog is long dead now.

    Stuff like Hulu and Netflix was never going to stay the same anyhow once the corporations realized that their old IP had value and the parent companies realized there was more money in original content and specialization.

    I’m fixin’ to cut cable again when the contract that I signed is up in March. We’ve still got Netflix, and we’ll probably get the other service that we have here as well as a replacement. There’s also amazon prime stuff which my wife just figured out the other day.

    If it ever get to pricey then I’ll definitely just cut it all. Any more than like $40 for television is too much.

  • Diddly: Basic B****

    I have a package arriving that was shipped via UPS. Unbeknownst to me, UPS handed over delivery to USPS, which I didn’t even know was possible, and now USPS is claiming the package is undeliverable. Goddammit shit like this is why mail is dying!

    • ProjectBlue

      It’s annoying, happens more and more as they all start pinching pennies.

      • Diddly: Basic B****

        Doesn’t help that:

        a) my mailman is lazy to the point of not delivering Amazon packages on time (which gets me free credits with Amazon)

        b) my apartment has been renovating their leasing office for 2 months now and supposedly has told everyone to drop packages off at doors, yet it isn’t happening

        • chicagodem79

          It’s actually more common than you think, the shipping was probably some service where they use UPS and FedEx to get to distribution centers, then rely on the USPS for last mile delivery.

  • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

    I was so clever and thought I’d get my Xmas shopping done super early and just cruise to December. So much for that plan.

    Email i just got…..”I’m having trouble with my monitor cord. I think that’s what the problem is. If I barely move my monitor, it goes out. It takes a lot of wiggling and jiggling to get it to come back on. Please help. My computer is xxxxxxxx” Ummm i can’t remotely log into your computer to fix the cord

    • Dwayne

      Get a new cord, genius.

    Despite Marv’s warnings, I have had The Dark Tower books on my shelf for like a decade, and I’d like to get them off my shelf. So I’m finally gonna read them this fall.

    • Marv

      Enjoy that lol

      • Miko363

        I’m gonna assume any books written pre-accident and pre-sobriety are good and any afterwards are chock full of corny dialogue and self-indulgent easter eggs.

        • Marv

          The first book is ok. It all turns bad after that.

        • ProjectBlue

          1 I loved, 2 and 3 ok, 4 became my favorite on re-reads. 5-7 are “Oh my god, maybe he should have died on the road in Maine”. The ending I liked. The other one, Wind Through the Keyhole is good

    • ProjectBlue

      Yay!

  • Marv

    This crazy broad is listening to a cooking show on the radio. Like cooking tv shows are one thing (though they are generally awful) but at least you can see the product right? She can’t taste, smell or even see the food these people are allegedly making. I think it’s all lies and they’re eating Jimmy John’s.

    • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

      You guys sure hate Jimmy John’s.

      • Marv

        I don’t mind it, though I think I’ve eaten there once in my whole life. I just enjoy making fun of it because the people that do eat it act like it’s somehow better than any other shitty sandwich place and it just isn’t. It’s Subway with an arrogant attitude lol

        • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

          I feel the same way about Jersey Mike’s.

        • Diddly: Basic B****

          Hey and at least Subway SEASONS its food!

          • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

            Sandwich Shop Warz, eh?

        • DAJackson7

          Hot Take-I dislike most sandwiches….hell i dislike all of them

      • Diddly: Basic B****

        I tend to dislike foods that cause diarrhea

        Coldplay?

        • Marv

          Definitely. Probably a ton of bands we don’t even know about, like that band Jared Leto does that is supposed to be really good

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            They are okay. Non offensive guitar sounds. They wouldn’t go into the Hall of Fame

          • Marv

            I bet they do, their singer is super famous.

            We’re only a few years out from there being zero rock acts left actually popular enough to warrant inclusion so they’ll have to find other reasons to put people in

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            They will induct Body Count before 30 Seconds to Mars makes it in.

          • Marv

            No clue who Body Count is so…no they won’t.

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            It’s Ice-T’s metal band most famous for their 1992 L.A. Riot anthem “Cop Killer”.

            Your barometer sucks.

          • Marv

            Your barometer sucks, you act like the hall is interested in musical value. They only care about who makes the annual show a thing that gets talked about and watched on YouTube. Jared Leto does that in a way some no name (but talented) band never will. It’s a business it’s not an actual hall of fame lol

    Funny thing about this Cam Newton controversy is how the feminist are all “women know football blah blah blah” and every other single group is like “we dgaf”. I don’t know what that’s so funny to me

    • Macklin JeriPratt

      I get why he’s taking heat for it because his comment was basically “aw how cute you’re playing sports reporter! Good job champ.” and belittling will lead to criticism.

      • Devin Harris

        That’s probably why I find it funny.

        1) He actually said it
        2) He said it in the most condescending way possible like it’s 1963

    • Dwayne

      It wasn’t the worst thing in the world to say but it was kinda dumb. Like a woman who is there will obviously know something about the game or why would she have that position to ask questions? Also Cam had to have been asked questions by women before.

      • Marv

        I don’t know anything about this other than these two posts and now I kind of love Cam Newton.

        • Devin Harris

          I thought you already knew. You’ll find it hilarious. Look it up real quick

      • Devin Harris

        I really don’t know how he let that come out of his mouth. Dude, you knew what was going to happen, right????

        • Dwayne

          That’s my whole thing. I felt like maybe it had to be a personal attack against her that went left? Like there is no other reason to say that

          • Devin Harris

            None! hahahahaha

  • Marv

    Telling a woman “aww look at you pretending to be a sports reporter” doesn’t seem offensive to me because I always told most male sports reporters “awww look at you pretending to be a reporter.”

          Christ, really? Ugh. He should just jump all over that. “I knew who I was talking to”

    • Marv

      I just went from six to midnight.

      • No, no. Any craziness you see from me is probably alcohol related. My hormones are stable.

      If it’s one sport, then I could put up with it, but if it’s all sports, then, nope.

    • Comdukakis

      Disagree. I always wanted that. Didn’t get it. I’ve got some employees who are female that love football

    • Marv

      Like I said below: The only girls that genuinely like sports are single and probably staying that way because they think guys like girls that are into the same shit as them.

      I mean sometimes it happens but no one is fucking looking for that. “I’d like a girl thin as a rail, blond and loves baseball and wants to talk to me about it.” Get the fuck outta here

      • Comdukakis

        I did

        • Comdukakis

          Well red head

        • Marv

          Yeah no thanks lol

          • Comdukakis

            We all want different things

          • Marv

            Yeah personality types and all, didn’t you say you guys met at a wrestling show? I guess that’s your game. My wife and I only get along because we have such hugely divergent interests.

          • Comdukakis

            No. Her sister was in a wrestling role playing E-fed with me. My wife had no interest in wrestling at that time. It’s only the last couple years(to not feel left out) that she watched regularly

          • Marv

            Oh ok, I knew there was something wrestling related I almost even remembered it!

          • Comdukakis

            She joined the EFed though. She liked the writing aspect

      • chicagodem79

        I don’t know, this will be hard to explain, I don’t mind if a female likes to watch and enjoy sports, but not be diehard nerds about it like we are lol. My mom LOVES to watch basketball and football, she watches every single Bulls and Bears game. But other than those teams, she doesn’t know a whole lot else about those sports (although she does know a little more about basketball).

      • Dwayne

        Sports time is my time unless we are going to the game together. Other than that, it’s all for me. Lol

        • Marv

          And let’s be real honest even when you go together it’s still your time lol

          • Dwayne

            Yup!

          • Marv

            I can’t imagine it’s all that fun for my wife when I’m yelling at her to stay in single file when we’re walking and don’t do the wave god damn it this is serious business

    • I’ve never met a girl that was really into watching sports. Not like guys, anyhow. I’ve definitely met them that are perfectly happy to watch a game, and even follow to some point, but never like a rabid, know the stats, watch the talking heads, know the history, love to debate chick.

      It’s…..odd. Like, not many do, and then when you wanna go out with your friends, she wants to join.

  • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

    I mean, what Cam did was stupid but it’s clear there’s other shit going on here.

    • Dwayne

      That’s what I said. He knows that women could know about routes and shit. He just didn’t like that woman.

      • chicagodem79

        Yep, and if his criticism was just about her, yeah you would get the usual SJW’s making the leap, but at least the comment would be defensible. He needlessly made it a lot worse.

      • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

        He seems pretty savvy and he’s been doing this for awhile. Plus, he’s hardly the first athlete to be snippy with a reporter. I don’t know, I just feel like this has less to do with women in sports and journalism and more to do with the rich black kid not being compliant and humble enough.

        • Comdukakis

          Well he lost an endorsement already

        • chicagodem79

          It can be both IMO. With the women in sports thing being a total non factor in my eyes if he was bitching at her and not saying females in general.

        • Marv

          He’s not being grateful for that job he got only because he worked his whole life to be one of the top 32 people in the world at what he does.

            Oh that joke is more about the idea that they’re never grateful re: kneeling during an anthem

          • Comdukakis

            Ahh

          • Marv

            Yeah just more general, personally I find nothing wrong at all with what Cam said so I don’t have to make excuses for it. I thought what he said was fucking hilarious.

          • Comdukakis

            I think what he said is stupid but people say stupid stuff all the time. Hell we elect them. I’m just confused why anyone is surprised he’s a sexist? Outside of the congress there isn’t a more sexist group than young athletes that got coddled, sex on demand, pretty tutors to do their work, etc

          • Marv

            Agreed, it was dumb but really…who caaaaares? I mean holy shit, he’s a guy that said a mean thing to a women in a sport that is packed full of people that have beat up women

          • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

            It’s just funny to me. The obviousness is obvious but we pretend it isn’t. Different rules for different folks and all that.

        • ProjectBlue

          Being Whity McWhite, I’m out of my depth but I’d have an easier time agreeing if it was someone with a better reputation first off. Plus I just think there’d be a similar level of “OH MY GOD” white or black. Like, Rivers goes off “Why aren’t you knocked up instead?” or whatever and people would shit themselves

        • Comdukakis

          Or maybe he’s just a sexist. That’s my take. Not the first ghetto kid or country kid to be less than accepting and make it in sports

          • Dwayne

            I don’t think suburban kids necessarily are less sexist

          • Marv

            *waves*

          • Dwayne

            Right. Com has some splainin to do lol

          • Comdukakis

            I do. Certain groups tend to be “more” on a lot of things. Same way blacks are more homophobic as are rural whites. It’s how many grow up. Plenty of exceptions but it is cultural. Another sexist group is gay males.

          • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

          • Comdukakis

            Sorry polls back it up

          • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

            And polls are never wrong!

            *cough*

          • Comdukakis

            Before we go down that ridiculous road go to 538 dot com read up on how the presidential polls weren’t that off and then come back and we can talk

      • Macklin JeriPratt

        Neither one is a good spin for him. It looks like either he’s belittling females in sports or if he was specifically being a dick to that woman then he looks bad for going out of his way to be a dick to her and used her gender to do it. And it isn’t like he was particularly funny about it or making a point aside from being a dick so he doesn’t have the saving grace of “well it was funny at least”

        Overall, it was just a dumb move for him. The cons are there’s a backlash against him. The Pro is…I don’t know. He didn’t like the reporter and made a snide comment towards her?

        This white lady that pretended to be black and got caught and then said she was kinda black anyway because she had nappy hair and now she’s apparently changed her name from Rachel to Click Click

          Whatever. They gave us Michael Jackson, we should give them one back.

          • Marv

            I am a good boy and deleted what I originally wrote here.

      • Facts

        Nkechi Amare Diallo[4] (born November 12, 1977), commonly known by her previous name Rachel Anne Dolezal (also spelled Doležal /ˈdoʊləʒɑːl, -ʒæl/;[5]), is an American former civil rights activist and former Africana studies instructor. She was president of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) chapter in Spokane, Washington, from 2014 until June 15, 2015, when she resigned after it was revealed that she had lied about being African American, many other aspects of her biography, and about alleged hate crimes against her.

    • ProjectBlue

      She really commits to this bit

  • ProjectBlue

    Anybody remember Zeke Mowatt? Cam has a ways to go: The report said that Mowatt told Bruce Armstrong, a Patriot offensive lineman: “Look at her. She’s just watching. I’m going to tell her about herself.” It added that Mowatt, naked, walked in front of Olson and onto a scale and “purposely displayed himself to her in a suggestive way,” and that Perryman later did the same while her back was turned.

    • Marv

      LOL I love this guy. I mean I assume this was in the locker room that they wanted in just so badly. If it’s not then he’s a ghoul lol

    • ProjectBlue

      Two Patriots had complained earlier to James Oldham, the team’s director of media relations, and to Patrick Sullivan, the team’s general manager, that they believed Olson was, in the players’ words, “a looker,” someone who stood around the locker room not interviewing anyone.

  • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

    Com, I love ya, but you gotta stop putting people in neat little boxes.

    • Sounds like something a black guy, or maybe a hispanic would say.

      • Dwayne

        But not Grampa?

        • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

          I throw off EVERY poll!

        • Well no, he’s neither of those things.

    • Marv

      I have a hard time judging anyone or anything on polls given the last year of the American experience.

      • chicagodem79

        I honestly feel bad for people working in that industry these days. It’s really hard to collect data to make meaningful conclusions on it these days. I’m not sure polls will ever be super accurate again…at least not phone polls.

        • Marv

          I’m not sure it was ever really accurate anyway. I mean the old joke is old but it’s true, the only information they can get are from people dumb/bored enough to sit there and take a fucking poll.

          • chicagodem79

            But at least in the old days, you had phones which didn’t have caller ID so you could screen them before even picking up. These days, with the automatic call blocking, and cell phones and the like, if you actually talk to somebody for a political poll, they are probably more likely to be towards the extremes of the political spectrum anyway.

          • Marv

            Exactly! The only people answering are the people that really deeply care and that’s such a small segment of the voting population. I don’t know how we do it any differently but it’s always seemed like a weird ineffectual system to me.

          • chicagodem79

            There is no better way, that’s why the polling industry is really struggling. Internet polls are even worse at self-selection bias. I wonder if there ever will be some methodology to capture this.

          • Marv

            Eventually when they know our thoughts they’ll know what we like and don’t lol

          • Comdukakis

            It was accurate for years. Still is. Every state trump one was within margin of error and trump won on late breaking undecided that weren’t reflected until the final days in which polls showed breaking trump Clinton suddenly was in Michigan

    • Comdukakis

      I follow data. That said personal experience in flint finds the most virulent anti gay folks you can find. B

      • Marv

        Data always breaks down on an individual level though, very few people check all the boxes

        • Comdukakis

          Absolutely. Which is why I said there are many exceptions. But to deny cultural upbringing and norms is to hide your head in the sand to avoid offending

    • Marv

      Although I mean, I feel he was definitely right on one thing just given what I’ve seen and that was black people not being super into gay rights. I’ve been to lots of Pride parades, it certainly stays light out much later there haha

      I don’t know if that’s homophobia or they’re just tuckered out from all the bullshit that they have to do their own protesting about though lol

      • Marv

        In other words, it would be cool to see more black people protesting at Pride too but I get why they’re like “Yeah that’s neat you can’t get a cake served to you, I’ll be right on that once the cops stop shooting at us ok? That sound good?” lol

        • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

          TGGI

            I know how to do the Hot 97 roll call I’m the blackest person here.

      • Black Lives Matter interrupted and temporarily halted our Pride parade last year!

        • Marv

          Good.

    • Comdukakis

      And as a political science major little boxes are what we do. Data leads to conclusions

      • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

        Just makes it easier to dismiss folks if you can put them in a category and ignore them, rather than see them as a group of people with varied opinions and ideas. Like “all wrestling fans are neckbeard virgins” but only on a more serious, significant scale.

        • Comdukakis

          I dont dismiss them. I advocate everyone be exposed to different cultures and people to break free of these cultural norms and opinions made out of lack of experience

  • You guys are getting deep here and I’m just wondering if my kid’s going to shit green.

    • Marv

      In my experience the chalk does nothing to their dookie. My boy has eaten his share of chalk and then some lol

          He tried eating it when he got some last Christmas. That Play-Doh magically disappeared within about 30 minutes of him getting it lol woops

          • That line about “fun to play with, not to eat” is a lie. It was fun to play with, and was fun to eat. It was double not fun to shit back out later.

      It could just genuinely be that it sounded funny to him so he chuckled and said something. I mean if I said “It’s funny when Brian says ‘I left my car keys in my khakis'” that doesn’t mean I totally hate Bostoners or white people or whatever. It just means hearing that would amuse me until I probably tinkled my pants.

      • chicagodem79

        I tend to lean more towards Dwayne’s opinion that I don’t think he liked this particular reporter, and if he had just talked about her rather than saying females, at least he would’ve had a more defensible position. You still would’ve had the SJWs who would’ve blamed him anyway, but at least right minded, fair people could’ve looked through that.

          • Comdukakis

            Shit. I can watch frontline all I want. Hell I used to show them when I taught my class on government

          • The Silver Fox

            I’ve made use of many episodes of Frontline over the years.

          • Comdukakis

            I especially used the one on the passing of the ACA to show the legislative process

          • The Silver Fox

            I have a whole library of old Frontline and American Experience episodes on VHS and DVD that I acquired over the years.

          • Comdukakis

            Love that stuff

      • RudoWakening

        I don’t have PBS on PS Vue so perhaps they’ve an app for iPads for watching

        • Marv

          Only the first two episodes are available via their website, after that ya gotta pay unfortunately

          • RudoWakening

            Boooooooooo

          • Marv

            Right? I was going to buy the whole series off PBS then I realized I still have half a Zon card left from Christmas so I got them that way.

            I imagine they’ll all be available on PBS or something once it’s finished airing on TV

  • I am waiting for a bus

  • I wish that I had some New England clam chowder right now

    • New England clam chowder is the one thing that I’ve attempted that I’ve been told not to try again.The last time I tried it, it was more like New England clam gumbo.

      • I’ve never made it. I should try.

      • The Silver Fox

        The first time i made it didn’t turn out so well, but I’ve gotten much better over the years.

  • I also wish that I was on my was to purchase a garbage disposal. I’ve never had one.

    But nope. Stupid home.

  • I do get to go to the butcher tomorrow, so I’ve got that to look forward to.

  • Comdukakis

    As nbc sports gushes over the new Detroit arena, maybe they should mention all the taxpayer money a billionaire took to build it in the worst city in America

  • RudoWakening

    A good friend of mine had a stroke last night. She’s only 43

    • Sorry to hear

      • RudoWakening

        She texted me (using talk text, as she has partial vision) today to let me know. Then she called Cam Newton a dick and said he could fuck off. So at least she’s still herself.

    • The Professor

      sorry

    • thats terrible

    • Marv

      Jeeesus sorry man, that’s scary

    • The Silver Fox

      That sucks, but it’s not as rare as one might think.

      • RudoWakening

        I worked for a guy at NASA Plum Brook that had a stroke when he was 6. SIX.

        • The Silver Fox

          I had a student who suffered a stroke at 15 in school (not in my class though) in 2012 related to dehydration IIRC.

  • Frank Thomas, Keith Hernandez and David Ortiz on Fox Sports 1 pick the Indians to win the series – Thomas and Hernandez in 5, Ortiz in 4 – while Alex Rodriguez says the Yankees win. After hearing ARod give his answer, Papi turns to him and says, “You have to say that, you’re still on their payroll.”

    That was funny.

  • Rick “The Hot Take King” Ross

    Cities need to have the balls to tell billionaires to fuck off when they try to hold teams hostage unless they get public funding for new arenas/stadiums.

    I’m glad the Chargers are failing in LA.

    • The Professor

      at least the rams owner is paying for the stadium himself

    • Comdukakis

      Don’t get me wrong Illitch did lots for Detroit. He was a genuinely good dude. But….

  • RudoWakening

    I expect some gentlemanly shit talking between Mikey, Matt, and Ferrari

    • Comdukakis

      Go team

    • Marv

      More like between Ferrari and everyone. I think basically all the fans around here that don’t have a team in it are cheering for the Tribe.

      • Comdukakis

        Astros and Dbacks. Go ex tigers

        • Marv

          Super ew

          • Comdukakis

            Sad face

      • None of the other Yankees fans at the BoD made the move over here. I’m all on my own.

        But i don’t shit talk. The Yankees would need a miracle to win this series. I think they’re very good and I think they have a better chance against the Indians than the Astros, but the Indians are VERY good. I’m just hoping for a competitive series and not a sweep.

        Having said that, shit-talking toward me will result in consequences. Cuz I can.

      • Yeah I can cheer them since they didn’t steal it from my team last year

      • RudoWakening

        ‘Stros for me

    • Fun_Matt_Indeed

      I have to do it when possible. We’re only good two years a decade.

  • hmmm Spading the ball game and ting Twin Peaks isn’t working might switch to tv for baseball and watching peaks on the pad

    • Marv

      lolwut

      • whoa.. what the hell is that I typed..
        I meant to say watching the ball game on the iPad and twin peaks on tv isn’t working. it’s freezing on the pad. Might switch to tv for baseball and watch peaks on the pad

    • Comdukakis

      Was that English?

      • Marv

        I don’t think his ting is working.

      • I’m won’t argue that it was. I blame this dying Macbook

  • I think I’ll just ban myself

  • Comdukakis

    Ok red wings time

  • The Silver Fox

    Thrash metal question on Jeopardy.

    • did Alex stiffly recite metal lyrics?

      • The Silver Fox

        On the big four bands of thrash, picking the group that wasn’t listed (Slayer).

    • ProjectBlue

      Missed tonight. Weird guy win again?

      • The Silver Fox

        Yes

  • The post was before I’ve even had a drink tonight……buckle up folks!

  • that is a lot of bubble gum…. a lot of really cheap bubble gum

  • I enjoyed a po boy for dinner and sweet potato fries

  • Marv

    Putting on Avengres because that movie is fucking perfect.

    “Take care how you speak of Loki, he is of Asgard and he is my brother.”
    “He killed 80 people in two days.”
    “…he is adopted.”

    • It’s kind of crazy that with great comedy actors like Evans and RDJ. Hemsworth gets the best lines

    • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

      The new Thor movie should be good, too. The director is really solid.

  • Rick “The Hot Take King” Ross

    *Puppet H appears dressed as the Avengers villain*

    Road Dogg: Who are you supposed to be?
    Puppet H: Loki
    Josh Matthews: Wasn’t he the winner of NXT Season 2?
    Puppet H: No, that was Kaval

  • Comdukakis

    10 minute replay delay. Love the nhl

  • Rick “The Hot Take King” Ross

    So they still make Bazooka Joe bubble gum?

    Cause that shit last it’s flavour in 2 minutes of chewing.

    • Yes, but no more comics.

      • Rick “The Hot Take King” Ross

        So even less of a reason to get it.

  • no it’s that god damn lion dog commercial……it’s fine…..I’m fine…. shut ::sniff::

  • Fun_Matt_Indeed

    I’m pretty sure I saw Aaron Judge in that movie where he unfreezes in the future and meets Sanwise Gamgee and Paulie Shore.

  • uh ohhhh the Yankees might be yankeeing another starter

      Kindly take this upvote

  • Lazy Baby was pooping literally every diaper and it was driving my wife nuts. By chance she didn’t feed him the rice cereal that he likes one day, and only one poop. Now it’s been a couple of days off of the cereal, and normal levels of poop.

    No more cereal.

  • I’m feeling good.. about 48 hours till Blanche is back and I don’t work between now and then. The week has gone fast. Last time she did this she took another day or two off and I took more time off too and got bored and lonely.. this time I honestly felt like it has flown by. I’ll be happy to have her back but I am kind of … oh… it’s almost over already….I’ve not turned the PS4 on once

  • ProjectBlue

    Universal Pictures is pumping the brakes on its cinematic universe full
    of gods and monsters as the next film in the Dark Universe, Bride of Frankenstein, has been plucked from its February 2019 release and postponed for now. ……Shocked, shocked I tell you

  • RudoWakening

    Remember that episode of Step By Step where Karen and Al were trying to be country singers? The song they did is currently stuck in my head

  • I was excited bout the Dark Universe at first. I’m fine with these movies being remade every 20 years or so and we are about at that time. Building to monster avengers… sure why not the original House Of movies were kind of fun back in the day but yeah it’s been a bummer with The Mummy that they evidently decided that instead of monster horror movies lets just make generic action movies with a “monster” tossed in

    • ProjectBlue

      Hollywood fucks up anything Dark.

  • Comdukakis

    i loved Heenan. But people paint Tony Schiavone as some kind of villain for not liking Bobby. Watching the Austin Blue Ray set where Austin/Flair are wrestling Sting/Steamboat. during the match they are hyping Rhodes/Runnels vs. Bunkhouse Buck/someone else. Anyway Heenan make the comment “I don’t think Rhodes and his son have ever wrestled together.” UGGGH. Um Bobby you were at Royal Rumble 91, 3 years before. Tony pauses, tries to save it by saying they wrestled together in Japan. That and the drunk stuff was why Tony didn’t like Bobby. Heenan had some great one liners even in WCW but he was unprepared, often drunk and failed at the most important job that he excelled at in WWF: getting wrestlers over.

    • Comdukakis

      shit wrong site.

      • HAHA COM DID IT BEFORE I EVER DID!!

      • also it’s a little weird how we are suddenly meshing

        • Comdukakis

          almost as well as Peyton’s face meshes with Wonder Woman.

  • Stranger In the Alps

    Why doesn’t anyone ever throw accusations toward Jose Altuve for juicing? He’s lucky he’s in Houston where no one can watch him play.

    If he was on the Red Sox, New York media would be all over that.

    • The Professor

      I figured all players at Minute Maid park is juicing

      • Comdukakis

        {slow clap}

        • Stranger In the Alps

          Encouraging that type of joking…….bah.

          • Comdukakis

            my favorite teacher in school was a master of puns. I appreciate silly humor like that

      • Stranger In the Alps

        That’s a hitrer’s ballpark for sure, but Altuve is clubbing shit that goes further than guys a foot taller.

    • If he was in New York, the BOSTON media – and ESPN and every other outlet in the country – would be all over him.

    • Mike Mears

      If he was in New York like, say, a rookie that just hit 180 home runs and doesn’t have anyone talking about being on steroids?

      No one talks about specific players juicing anywhere near the same way we did 10 years ago.

      • Comdukakis

        the assumption by many is that guys can’t beat tests (LOL)

        • Mike Mears

          I think overall usage is almost certainly down from what it was at its peak in the late 90s-early 00s, but I never really had a problem with it in the first place. Inject horse tranquilizer directly into your scrotum if it’ll make you more entertaining on a baseball field, for all I care.

          • Comdukakis

            oh it’s down. But it’s not gone. And yeah I’ve never been overly concerned. Yeah it sucks that to compete (particularly at the olympic level in many sports) you have to risk health and juice but as a fan I don’t care that much. Game is good then the game is good

      I find the politics surrounding wars fascinating. The war itself not so much. I’m not a guy who’s into the weaponry or stories of battlefield strategy like some

    • Ginger Mahal

      It took me about ten seconds to figure out which joke you were referencing. That’s a long time for me to figure out a Mitch reference. Well done.

      I always loved his appearance on that one episode of That 70s Show.

      Mitch: I didn’t lose a leg in Vietnam so I could come back and serve hot dogs to punks like you!

    So as the bombing in the north intensified through 1966 the population responded by building single/two person bomb shelters out of small holes and concrete piping all over the place. I mean like really all over the place. They had enough random tiny shelters across the country to accommodate 18 *million* people

    • Comdukakis

      yeah those people were going to be independent or die.

      But it was about communism. Just ask the idiots in charge of US policy

        his apology, whether written for him or not was quite good. No equivocation in it

          • Comdukakis

            oh I agree. I just thought it was well written as far as apologies go. I think Newton is a douche. Not evil per se, just a guy who’s a douche. Like Shawn Michaels.

          • To me the problem is the top comment on deadpan is funnier than anything I can come up with “Hey, Cam, remember how you feel when people ask if a black QB can learn the intricacies of an NFL offense?”

          • Comdukakis

            that’s a great response.

  • who the hell are these people that have diabetes and don’t know what it does to their body?

    • Comdukakis

      I think we need to talk to Wilford Brimley about this

    • You know what, dude, I’ve had doctors that didn’t see any reason to explain what diabetes does. And most of the information I have on being a Type 1 comes from my own research. If you’re not curious and just do whatever the doctor says… *shrug*

      • …well that sucks

        • It really does, actually, which is why, I think, the online community I mentioned above has come together.

          When I moved to Queens, I had to go to three or four endocrinologists before I found one I liked and who was actually supportive as opposed to the Joslin Center approach, which is basically, “NO! YOU’RE DOING IT WRONG! FEEL SHAME! BE BETTER! YOU’RE GONNA DIE!” which didn’t really work for me…

      • Doctor advice on diabetes is .. not always good at all.

        diabetes.org has a great community though.

        • There is a very active and very helpful online community of people with diabetes. It’s been super encouraging the last few years.

    • Who specifically are you talking about?

  • “ask your doctor about Jardiance”
    ASK YOUR DOCTOR WHY SOME DUDE ON THE STREET HAD TO TELL YOU WHAT DIABETES DOES TO YOUR HEART!

    speaking of doctors I had the most bizarre thing at mine yesterday. Went for my knee (got a flu shot too) and they of course took my blood pressure. I’ve always been fine 120-75/80ish. Well yesterday it was 155/90. Can someone’s blood pressure go up that much in a year? Doctor didn’t even mention it so not sure if nurse didn’t tell him or what

    • you seem like someone whose blood pressure would go up that much pre and post trump

  • I never ended up in baseball because I don’t spit much in life…. I probably spit less than 20 times a year

    They’re doing a whole bit on Ali and his protests against the war and the draft which to me as far as one single person goes is the greatest protest act in the history of the country. They show him talking to a room full of white students at a teach-in:

    “You’re talking to me about a draft and all I see is you white boys running to Canada and Switzerland and London. I’m not going to help somebody get something me negros don’t have. If I’m gonna die I’ll die right here fighting you. You’re my enemy. You’re my opposer when I want freedom. You’re my opposer when I want justice. You’re my opposer when I want equality. You won’t even stand up for me in America for my religious beliefs and you want me to go somewhere and fight for you? When you won’t even stand up for me at home?”

      The Fucking Greeeeeaaaatest.

    • Comdukakis

      amazing he is now remembered as a cuddly, lovable fellow. Guy had BALLS and was hated by white america

      • Marv

        I’m happy they went with this particular speech rather than the way more widely known “Ain’t no Viet Cong ever called me…” because everyone knows that, I’d never seen this one before it was fucking awesome

      • Howard Cossel I think had a lot to do with the “cuddly” image

        • Comdukakis

          great point

    • ProjectBlue

      Big ole balls on him

    • There is literally no argument that he was the greatest.

    • chicagodem79

      Hey Marv, do they cover John McCain’s experiences in Vietnam?

      • Marv

        Not yet but there’s still something like 15 hours to go lol

        I’m only up to 1966

        • Comdukakis

          well he is no hero, after all he just got caught

          • chicagodem79

            It still boggles my mind this country elected someone that said that about a veteran….truly remarkable.

          • Comdukakis

            yeah it is. But damn if his revenge wasn’t fucking amazing

          • Marv

            Fucking wonderful. And you could tell he had a boner because he paused to soak it up like a fucking wrestling heel before giving that thumbs down lol

          • Comdukakis

            it was glorious. the most giant FU to that orange cheeto asshole he could do

          • Marv

            When he walked back to his seat he should of started waving his hand by his ear like Hogan

    • RudoWakening

      “I ain’t got not quarrel with no Vietcong”

  • Reasonable Opinion Guy

    “Mountain Lions are so scared of humans that the sound of talk radio sends them running ”

    same

  • Oh thank God, Kluber is gone…

  • Comdukakis

    idiot announcer on the Red Wings game. So and so and so and so celebrating birthdays today…..good for them.

    yeah because celebrating a birthday is such an acomplishment

    • Ginger Mahal

      Same.

      Celebrating birthdays after you turn 21 is just pointless.

      • Rick “The Hot Take King” Ross

        Fuck that, I expect a gift and streak dinner on my birthday.

        And sex if I feel like it but probably not as I’ll be tired from the big dinner.

        • Comdukakis

          i expect the same, but it’s no accomplishment to say “good for them”

          • Rick “The Hot Take King” Ross

            You could argue that managing to live another year is an accomplishment.

          • Comdukakis

            maybe once you hit 75 or so, exceed the average life expectancy for your gender

        • Ginger Mahal

          My birthday is in early March, so I became accustomed to everyone being out of town for Spring Break on my birthday, and celebrating a week early always felt weird.

  • So monday do we get the Star Wars trailer during MNF and then shortly after tickets going on sale like with Force Awakens?

  • Stranger In the Alps

    Just received the Dolph Lundgren version of The Punisher in the mail today…….on VHS!

      • Stranger In the Alps

        That was me when I opened my mailbox today. Except there were no cartoon characters and I was a different skin color.

        • So wearing basketball gear though.

          • Stranger In the Alps

            Totally rocking a ToonSquad basketball jersey.

    • Comdukakis

      oh it’s horrific

      • Stranger In the Alps

        I’m sure it is. Nevertheless, VHS is the only way I will watch the movie.

    • Rick “The Hot Take King” Ross

      Oh that’s bad……really bad

    • ProjectBlue

      Unrequested? That could be some kind of threat

      • Stranger In the Alps

        Totally requested. Totally.

    • Marv

      So the Unabomber is back at it huh

      • Stranger In the Alps

        More like….the UnaGIVER.

        So stoked.

        • Marv

          It’s delightfully abhorrent.

          • Stranger In the Alps

            I also received a horror movie called Pulse in which the villain is a killer electrical pulse that takes over toasters….refrigerators…..etc.

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            Pulse is great! Isn’t that the remake of Shocker with the white guy in the lead?

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            Never mind. I was thinking of The Horror Show. I do remember Pulse, though! That was cheesy fun.

          • Stranger In the Alps

            Looking forward to watching it. Scouring the internet for tapes is both fun and exhausting.

    • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

      Hell yes!! I’m so jealous!!

  • ok back to twin peaks and keep up with the game on game day just in case

  • Audrey!!! finally

  • Marv

    I guess we’re doing pizza because no one remembered that dinner is a thing

  • Marv

    Every episode of this doc has good music but there’s always one song that plays several times through each one. This episode’s song is Are You Experienced? Fucking boners

  • The Professor

    currently taking a survey about a gas tax

    • Ginger Mahal

      One more….. for the good guys.

  • …..this loyalty commercial is the worst…………

  • The yankees have 99 problems and judge is one #NAILEDIT

    • see his jersey number is 99…..and he’s having a bad night

  • Marv

    North Vietnamese Guy: “We always laughed that they even wore camouflage. They smoked cigarettes in our jungle we could track them from a half a mile away by smell.”

    …boo lol

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    Tonight I learned that Demolition still competes on the indy circuit.

    …..that’s sad.

    • Scary…..Ax is almost 70 and isn’t the reason they brought Crush in because he had medical issues…25 years ago??

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        That’s what I recall.

    • Jesus wasn’t Eady around 40 when the team was hot?

    • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

      In one sense it is. In another, who does it harm if this is what they enjoy doing and how they want to spend their time?

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        I saw Ax trip over his own man titty. It’s over.

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    I wonder if I could get The Machines all back together.

  • I’m starting to think the Yankees might not pull this off

    • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

      They have some incredible bats. All it takes is one homer and it’s a different series.

  • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

    Tonight was a great game. I think the Yankees are one hot at bat away in tomorrow’s game from winning the series. This will be a nail-biter.

  • Reasonable Opinion Guy

    In my morning commute I encounter way too many people who have no concept of a shower or deodorant.

  • Reasonable Opinion Guy

    Also Kazuo Ishiguro is a great writer and deserved the Nobel Prize for literature.

    • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

      Yes!!

  • ok was falling asleep during twin peaks… night
