Kill Or Be Killed 13

I decided to make a clean break with the main Batman book, since I hadn’t really been enjoying it, and passing on the Dark Nights: Metal tie-in this week, The Drowned, because I find myself caring less and less about the story with every new issue.

Maybe I’ll pick up the collection.

  • I was wondering if Wednesday was still Ferrari’s favourite day of the week, and it is!

    ” Yesterday, on October 5th, we were alerted to a security breach that impacted a database from 2012. While we are still investigating the incident, we believe that it is best to share what we know now.

    Everything is fine.

    • TatR!

      I only got here in 2014! I’m safe!

    • THE DUCK

      With this information we can finally unearth the true identity of Friendship!

      • TatR!

        I presume he’s the guy who hacked disqus to get revenge on marv, ferrari and whoever was the third enemy he named

    • Oh good!

    • Diddly: Basic B****

      What HASN’T been hacked at this point

  • TatR!

    Hello gentlemen!

    • RudoWakening

      Hello TatR!

  • THE DUCK

    RIP Gordon Hayward

    • DAJackson7

      That was beyond gruesome

      • THE DUCK
        • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

          Stay classy, San Diego

        • DAJackson7

          I like how some dude’s career might be over and that hack turns it into a LeBron thing to get more clicks

          • RudoWakening

            Well, Skip Bayless *IS* a world renowned twat.

      • RudoWakening

        It reminded me of Robin Ventura

  • Devin Harris

    Today is shaping up to be a busy one much to my chagrin. Also, I didn’t bring lunch so I’m forced to eat out.

    • Professor Chaos

      cafeteria food?

      • Devin Harris

        We don’t have a cafeteria. The culinary students used to offer lunch everyday but they stopped that for some reason. Now, they only offer food once a month or something like that.

        • RudoWakening

          Lazy millenials

  • Professor Chaos

    I just feel very blah today. I dont want to go to work or do my morning run

    • TatR!

      mid-October such a blah time. Summer’s gone, weathers turning, not close enough to Christmas to get excited (unless you’re matt)

      • Professor Chaos

        plus my morning run would be all in the dark

      • RudoWakening

        Or Marv

  • RudoWakening

    It appears as though I’m only working 8 today. This is just dandy

    • I took today off so I could go see The Princess Bride in a theater tonight.

      • Professor Chaos

        inconcievable

      • RudoWakening

        Be sure to crush someone with a rock.

  • Professor Chaos

    Really? The han solo movie is just called solo?

    • Diddly: Basic B****

      Oota Choota, Solo?

  • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

    Listening to some Probot. It’s a very underrated album

    • RudoWakening

      It really is

  • DAJackson7

    Morning folks…i spent my night catching up on the new Star Wars Rebels…………..none of the characters have died yet so it’s still a disappointment.

    • Diddly: Basic B****

      I’m just waiting for this season to finish so I can binge watch it all. Only have seen Season 1 (when I had cable) and had Seasons 2 and 3 finales spoiled

      • DAJackson7

        Yeah 2 and three were good, but i’m glad this season is ending it, time to wrap this crew and story up for sure, and all the shit they have done with Mandelore has my brain fried.

  • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

    Last night saw the live action Tokyo Ghoul. It’s definitely the better live action anime adaptation to be put out in recent times

  • Matt_Indeed

    This homemade oatmeal is the tits.

    Apples and cinnamon in it. Just so good.

    • THE DUCK

      I had bacon and sausage. It was delightful.

    • RudoWakening

      I had honey oat Cheerios, yogurt, and a banana.

      • Matt_Indeed

        Always a good combo.

    • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

      Overnight oats has been a Godsend

  • Matt_Indeed

    To TatR’s point, we’re only 67 days until Christmas!

    • TatR!

      I am looking forward to it! I think we break up on the 22nd this year and then not back in until the 3rd

  • TatR!

    We had a huge fight this morning but made up. Everyones stressed. Getting stuff ready for the mortgage people. It’s That Time Of The Month, which sucks anyway but really sucks when you’re supposed to have been having a baby. Everyones irritable all the time. I’m very stressed at work.

    • Facts

      Sorry to hear that

      • TatR!

        How are you guys?

        • Facts

          Getting better since our talk. She keeps going back and forth on wanting a kid and she needs time to decide. Its made my anxiety go sky high.

          • TatR!

            I can tell you the longer you leave it the harder it can be

          • Facts

            Yeah. I told her if she says no it will be a major deal breaker and may lead to divorce. Its made my anxiety go crazy.

          • TatR!

            shit yeah, there’s not really a middle ground on that one

          • Matt_Indeed

            Wow, that’s quite the ultimatum.

          • Facts

            Yes. She knows I will resent her the rest of our marriage and she’s fine with it. My being upset

          • Facts

            Plus she’s extremely difficult to deal with and other things. Im going through a rough patch right now.

          • Matt_Indeed

            I can see that. I hope it gets better, sir.

          • Facts

            Thanks.

          • TatR!

            hopefully Mrs Facts will allow children in attempt to appeal to Facts

          • Facts

            Agreed.

    • Matt_Indeed

      Sorry TatR. Things will get better, I’m sure of it.

    • Diddly: Basic B****

      Sad TatR = Sad Blog 🙁

    • RudoWakening

      It’ll get better, TatR. Just give it time

    • It can take a while for things to normalize after something like that, but they will.

  • Matt_Indeed

    At least we all don’t feel like Gordon Heyward today.

    • Diddly: Basic B****

      Knocked out with anesthesia and soon to be knocked out on morphine?

      • Matt_Indeed

        Well, when you put it that way, his day sounds pretty great.

  • Diddly: Basic B****

    Got the Target exclusive Spider-Man Homecoming BR/DVD last night!

    • DAJackson7

      I need to watch that sometime

    • Professor Chaos

      what exclusives does it have?

      • Diddly: Basic B****

        It’s Blu-Ray, DVD, Digital Copy, Bonus Disc with “extra content” (so probably two 2 minute long features), and a comic in exclusive “yearbook” packaging

        Best Buy has an exclusive Steelbook package that is just 4K, Blu-Ray, and Digital Copy

        Walmart has the regular BR/DVD combo pack you can get everywhere but it comes with two pencil toppers

  • Facts

    I got a book on the USFL(see my avatar) and of course Trump had to ruin it.

    • Diddly: Basic B****

      Did his players stand for the anthem?

    • DAJackson7

      He does that a lot.

  • RudoWakening

    My work is currently on hold as the millwrights are welding patches on the lids of the only two empty intermodals I have on site. Also, I am not going to receive any empties today.

  • Matt_Indeed

    @timeandtherani:disqus Have you heard this band called Charly Bliss? I’m kind of fascinated by them. Their lead singer is a girl who has a mousy voice, and they kind of sound like Weezer musically. I keep watching their videos and can’t look away.

    • TatR!

      I haven’t! I’ll check their album out now

      • Matt_Indeed

        I think it’s called Guppy.

        I really like “Westermarck”. Definitely has an early Weezer vibe with a bit of maybe PJ Harvey or Letters to Cleo thrown in.

        • TatR!

          damn it’s so early 90s.

          • Matt_Indeed

            Is it? Is that bad?

          • TatR!

            Nah it just is! It’s like Belly or Breeders or Bands Of That Nature

          • Matt_Indeed

            Those are great bands.

          • TatR!

            Belly just announced a show here for next year, I’m not sure whether I’d go. I really liked a few songs off of Star but maybe not enough for a whole show

          • Matt_Indeed

            So do you like Charly Bliss or are you bleh?

            I mean, they don’t scream or use a sound effect machine, so I can understand if you don’t like them.

          • TatR!

            Yeah it’s not bad, I’ll keep it spinning for the next hour. Will take a few spins to work out if I really like it. I like when albums are short

  • Facts
    • Professor Chaos

      he wanted to make football great again

  • Matt_Indeed

    I think I ate 3 lbs of oatmeal.

    • Facts

      Mmmmmmmmm oatmeal.

  • Diddly: Basic B****

    HIDEOUS mashup music being played in the office so far. Like a slowed piano version of American Idiot and then a techno remix of Wouldn’t It Be Nice by the Beach Boys

    • TatR!

      Richard Cheese’s version of American Idiot really fixed the issues with that song, a master class

      • Diddly: Basic B****

        This isn’t awesome like that, this is someone taking the actual lyrics and “remixing” them and it sounds awful!

  • Professor Chaos

    Only dvds I ever buy is for my classroom

    • TatR!

      kids today we are learning about back to the future

      • Professor Chaos

        more like, Mulan or Glory

      • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

        More likely response:
        .
        “Cool, they used Rick & Morty as inspiration!”

        • Diddly: Basic B****

          “These effects look like garbage!”

          *praises anything made within the last few years*

    • Facts

      I buy only digital now.

      • Diddly: Basic B****

        Then what do you put on your bookshelf? BOOKS?!?

        • TatR!

          bookshelves are mainly used for those little POP figures now

  • Facts

    Called in today. Still feeling strung out and under the weather

    • Diddly: Basic B****

      “RIP Facts” – Donald Trump, January 2017

  • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

    These days if we do decide to buy a physical copy of a movie it’ll be something that we really liked and want to have. Otherwise, most of our movie viewings are either through Netflix, Hulu or rent them on iTunes

    • Professor Chaos

      same (except for the classroom part)

    • Matt_Indeed

      I have a huge DVD and blu ray collection, but I haven’t actually purchased a physical copy of a movie in years. I’m always gifted them.

    • Diddly: Basic B****

      Movie sections at stores have really been cut back too. I used to spend HOURS in Best Buy looking at stuff, especially when they had stuff on sale. Now they have 2 shelves full of movies

      • RudoWakening

        I got an email from Suncoast the other day, which was surprising because I didn’t think Suncoast still existed.

        • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

          I remember a Sam Goodies that was closing here years ago, I basically ransacked whatever they had

    • Comdukakis

      I just can’t rely on streaming. Stuff goes away too often and all three major streaming services are spending more and more money on original content and less and less on existing archival movies and TV. I fear we will have thousands and thousands of TV shows and movies that fall through the cracks, never to be seen again. There might be some services that spring up and try to sell them themselves as the home for classic content, 80s content, etc. but the costs will be prohibitive if it’s anything like what companies are up against with the rights to songs for shows (think WKRP for example) and I don’t see enough subscribers to make it profitable.

  • Matt_Indeed

    I’m in a surprisingly cheerful mood for someone who was on the phone with GE fixing shit until 8:30 last night.

    • DAJackson7

      That does not sound like fun.

      • Matt_Indeed

        It was not. It was not.

  • DAJackson7

    Rick Pitino suing Adidas for the getting him fired…well they did pay his salary, so that seems fair.

    • Comdukakis

      that’s kinda like suing the guy who supplies you with the drugs you are selling in the neighborhood

      • DAJackson7

        Pretty much.

  • Matt_Indeed

    Another current band I love is Lake Street Dive. They’re great. Jazz, soul, indy pop.

  • Matt_Indeed

    See, I like some current shit after all.

    • Comdukakis

      I’ve listened to exactly one of those (The Killers)

      • TatR!

        The 21 above it are worth a listen

      • TatR!

        What did you think?

        • Comdukakis

          oh I liked it. They are about the only band that has formed in the last 15 years that I actually listen to full albums for. All the other ones (Springsteen, Ben Folds, Metallica, Weezer, etc.) are long term favorites and other newer music is just background noise i hear if I listen to the indie mix station or something

  • Comdukakis

    I guess I’m just a different person but I can’t imagine wanting a kid so bad that I’d leave my wife. In fact I’d more likely to go the reverse. Obviously Facts has other issues going on but I just never wanted kids enough to think that would have been a deal breaker. Honestly as much as I love my daughter I often miss the lifestyle my wife and I had as just the two of us

    • Dwayne

      I never cared if I had kids or not and I most likely won’t have any more.

      • Comdukakis

        my daughter was utterly unplanned. My wife had been told she couldn’t have kids and neither of us cared.

        • Dwayne

          Yeah. We didn’t think we could have kids either. Now my wife is fixed so she won’t get pregnant again.

    • Matt_Indeed

      Everybody is different, but it is odd not to know where you both stand on parenting before you get married.

      • Dwayne

        You’d think that would be a conversation that would happen at some point.

        • Matt_Indeed

          Right. I mean, I knew my wife wasn’t ready when we got married, but she also said she wanted them down the road. And 6 years later, we had TI.

          • Diddly: Basic B****

            I feel like this is how most couples do things. Get married, do “couples things” for a few years, then have kids once careers and homes are established

          • Comdukakis

            more affluent couples do. Less affluent get pregnant, wreck their plans or had no plans, then get married

          • Dwayne

            Some people never establish careers and homes so they can’t wait on that. lol

          • Matt_Indeed

            That’s exactly what we did.

          • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

            I think having a discussion about kids is one of those things that should be discussed early on. You don’t want any sort of resentment later on down the road

      • Comdukakis

        yeah my wife and I both were fine not having kids (although she now claims that she was wanting kids for a year or so before she got pregnant so she was thrilled. Those 30-31 year old hormones I guess. Not sure if I truly believe her though)

      • TatR!

        people can change their minds though, I presume that’s whats happened here.

        • Matt_Indeed

          That’s true. Kind of a huge change though.

        • Dwayne

          I changed my mind after she was born.

          • TatR!

            🙁 can’t put her back in unfortunately

          • Comdukakis

            yep. non-returnable

          • Dwayne

            I tried.

          • Comdukakis

            eeeewwwww

          • Dwayne

            I made a joke about it once when she was bad. My wife wasn’t amused.

          • Comdukakis

            same with me. I was NOT happy when I found out my wife was pregnant. I had to put on a good face because it was what it was.

    • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

      Me and the missus talked about it. We like our lives the way it is

  • Dwayne

    I’m gonna decide between buying Madden 18, NBA 2k18 or NHL 18 tomorrow. Not getting WWE

    • Comdukakis

      NBA 2k18 has great game play and I highly recommend it if you are a myleague person. but myplayer folks are complaining about VC this and VC that

      • Dwayne

        I’m not a myplayer or park guy. I like franchise modes so NBA is probably the best option.

        • Matt_Indeed

          I love franchise mode too. I don’t play online at all on any game. I just can’t get into it.

          • Dwayne

            The only time I player online was against a friend. I’m not playing some random 12 year old in Iowa who is going to curse me out for winning.

          • Matt_Indeed

            Yeah, also I don’t want to play some dude who plays 18 hours a day and knows all the plays that will burn me. What fun is that?

          • Comdukakis

            i won’t pay for the playstation monthly service. I play two games a year myself (Show and NBA2k) and my daughter has pretty checked out of video games at this point (maybe every couple months when she’s really bored she tosses in minecraft) so I have no need to pay bucks a month just to play Bonzai in a game or two of 2k

    • Matt_Indeed

      Bayless has been shitting on Madden 18 since he bought it, so you may want to skip that one.

      • I think he just rented it via Redbox. So you know it stinks.

        • Matt_Indeed

          Yeah, that’s even worse.

        • Brian_Bayless

          I explored the franchise mode for two days.

          Its a game designed to have you play Ultimate Team mode and spend money.

          For franchise play, get 2k18

          • Matt_Indeed

            ^^^ I think this guy has an alert when you mention him.

          • Brian_Bayless

            Nah, just got into work and logged on to my computer

          • Matt_Indeed

            The timing!

          • Brian_Bayless

            I log into work
            My job is second to me
            Gotta hit up my sites
            Get on the Geekery

            The chat about games
            Life problems and such
            Gonna shoot the shit
            Nothing too much

            But I love the flag
            Stand up straight and proud
            The anthem is turned up to 11
            It can never be too loud

            I’m a real patriot!

          • TatR!

            kinda read this to the tune of Rebecca Black

          • Brian_Bayless

            I don’t have any British songs of patriotism. But if I did, I’d write one for you

          • TatR!

            Jesus. You write a song about Matt every time he goes to the bathroom but tatr gets nothing

          • Brian_Bayless

            What constitutes a British patriot. Give me something to work with here

          • TatR!

            It’s basically the same. Idiots, flags, anti-immigration, just we have a queen instead of a stupid president to worship

          • Brian_Bayless

            TatR’s desk changed at the office
            There was a house he put in a bid
            The seller said “it’s sold”
            Because his currency was squid

            He celebrated with wine
            In the glass it went swish
            Then he ate some food
            A cheese and onion sandwich

            The Brexit folks
            Are mean and obscene
            TatR just wants to admire Big Ben
            And get a wave from the Queen

            TatR is a British Patriot!

          • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

            It’s hard to write songs about raw onion and cheese sad-wiches.

          • Dwayne

            Yeah Madden hasn’t had a good franchise mode in years.

            sadly nba2k is headed that way more and more. Thankfully they have some game designers who still care about franchise but it’s all about getting more money out of you than your original 60 bucks and that is where the vast amount of attention goes

          • Brian_Bayless

            True but at least 2K Sports can put out a decent franchise.

            EA Sports has been shit for a while

    • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

      No WWE? You don’t want The Largest Roster In WWE Gaming History™ (90% Of Which You’ll Never Use)?!? And Colonel Sanders, man, how can you pass up The Colonel?!?

      *cough*

  • TatR!

    seems to be a lot of buzz about horror movies lately. This Happy Death Day looks interesting

    • Comdukakis

      it’s Halloween season. There is ALWAYS buzz about horror movies this time of year

      • TatR!

        yeah but a lot of years it’s just shitty sequels or reboots, seems like there’s more actual stuff happening this year

  • This construction next door is STILL going on, after 3-4 months… I think they woke the baby up while she was napping… which means that I couldn’t nap.

    I’m going over there and killing them all.

  • Matt_Indeed

    I’m listening to Guppy by Charly Bliss right now on Spotify. They are currently my obsession, I think.

  • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

    I mean , if you really want a kid and your partner is on the fence, I guess you do have to decide what you want more: the child or the marriage. Single parenting is tough, but doable, and you don’t want a partner who’s not fully committed.

  • Mikey

    I don’t think I’ll ever get married.

    • Matt_Indeed

      You’re catholic. It’s inevitable.

      • Mikey

        Doesn’t have to be.

    • Brian_Bayless

      My three year anniversary is a week from today and I have a kid coming soon.

      At 35 years old, I don’t think I’d know what to do with myself being single

      • Dwayne

        My four year anniversary is tomorrow.

        • Matt_Indeed

          Happy Anniversary!

          • Dwayne

            Thanks!

        • Comdukakis

          11 years married this past september, together 18 this past september

        • Mikey

          Happy Anniversary.

      • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

        At 39 and single, it’s surprisingly easy and stress-free. A bit lonely, but I’m a loner anyway.

      • Mikey

        I’m 30. I can’t see it happening.

        • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

          At this stage, it would have to be someone pretty amazing for me to spend the time and energy to make it work.

        • Matt_Indeed

          My uncle didn’t get married until he was in his 40’s, and even had a kid in his 40’s.

      • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

        This December will be me and my wife’s 4 year anniversary. Been together 9 years total

      • Comdukakis

        oh I do. no commitments, do what I want, online dating if I want to hookup…

        It’s appealing

        • Brian_Bayless

          Some of it sounds good but the older you get the harder it is as the women your age that are single usually seem insane

          • Comdukakis

            wouldn’t care. this may sound harsh but if I get divorced I have zero desire to be in a relationship. So if they are insane, don’t care as long as I get some. then move on

          • Brian_Bayless

            Yeah, if I got divorced I’d likely be the same way

          • Comdukakis

            I mean I could get NBA league pass, play video games, watch whatever I wanted. It’s appealing.

          • Dwayne

            My wife doesn’t really get in the way of me doing what I would normally do. The only thing I would be doing differently without her is banging other women.

          • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

            You’re lucky. It normally doesn’t work out that well.

          • Dwayne

            It’s also different than most relationships. I don’t always see her because she travels a lot. We have space.

          • Comdukakis

            but you have to do stuff together. Which I enjoy sometimes but I can’t just watch the hockey or basketball game every single night or I get nagged for not spending time with the family. And I should. I’m in a family at this point

          • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

            Me and my old lady have struck a balance. For the most part we do a lot of things together (movies, tv, conventions, concerts, etc…) but every so often we’ll just say to each other “I’m gonna fuck off over here for a couple of hours”

          • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

            Yeah, you can’t just veg out whenever you feel like it, especially with a kid. And believe me, they will remember if you were active in their lives or just a lump on the couch and it impacts every future interaction.

          • Dwayne

            We have our family time when we go somewhere or watch a movie at home but I usually can squeeze in sports or video game time. Sometimes when everyone is asleep is the best time.

          • Mikey

            They are. I’ve run into a problem where I’ve dated “up” and the girls were 31-32 and there are definite reasons why they are single.

        • Dwayne

          If this relationship was over, I can fall back into that easily. But I don’t really miss it right now.

        • TatR!

          without commitments and boundaries we are aimless slobs

          • Comdukakis

            and I’m good with that. As long as this aimless slob could get a night of fun every couple months or so, I’d be fine

        • Sounds tiring

          • Comdukakis

            not like I’d be going out all the time. Just when I get an itch i’d find some woman to hook up with. I’m not terribly picky

          • Still sounds tiring

          • Comdukakis

            so is marriage some times

          • I’m much happier married to my wife than I would be playing the field.

    • Dwayne

      You’ll get trapped eventually.

    • Diddly: Basic B****

      I’m antisocial and still focused on the bar scene, so I’m worse off than you

      • Mikey

        I’m still at the bar scene too. And you’re younger than me lol.

    • Reasonable Opinion Ghost

      I decided a while ago I don’t want to be,for a variety of reasons.

      • Comdukakis

        afraid they will be unreasonable

        • Matt_Indeed

          Or corporeal.

    • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

      Nothing wrong with that

  • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

    I’m not anti-social but I have a very low tolerance for bullshit.

  • Reasonable Opinion Ghost

    “Guns for show,knives for a pro”

    • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

      Richard Pryor was pretty good, but otherwise I’d have to agree.

    • Diddly: Basic B****

      Food sucks

      *waits for verbal thrashing from Hoss*

    • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

      If this was maybe 15 years ago, I’d be mighty perturbed with you

    • So go away.

  • THE DUCK

    If you’re over 26, bars probably aren’t great places to find wife material. I emphatically suggest book stores instead.

    • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

      And that’s why you’re THE DUCK.

      • Dwayne

        He isn’t wrong.

        • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

          Do they even have actual bookstores anymore? All the ones around here closed.

          • Dwayne

            Not as many as there used to be, that’s for sure.

          • TatR!

            yeah they just sell ladies now though

          • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

            *audience groans*

          • TatR!

            *groans turn to cheers*

          • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

            *cheers turn out to be for director ending the scene*

          • TatR!

            *director is ending the scene early to present TatR with outstanding achievement award*

          • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

            *award is rescinded after a public-demanded recount and TatR is forced into a life of cable TV reality show appearances and autograph shows*

          • THE DUCK

            Me and Lady Duck go to Barnes and Noble once a month or so. I’ve never seen it not packed with women.

          • TatR!

            Women: “Yay, we found a place not crawling with men trying to come on to us!”
            Men: “wow I just found out where the women are, guys lets go!”

          • THE DUCK

            Basically! Lol

          • Dwayne

            I used to hang out at a Borders book store in college. There was a girl that worked there who always flirted.

      • THE DUCK

        They attract women who aren’t drunk and they have built in coffee shops for casual low consequences dates.

    • Dwayne

      Bars and clubs are great places to find one night stands. Not relationships.

      • Brian_Bayless

        Bars are good for the 4 F’s philosophy

      • THE DUCK

        Differentiating between what you’re looking for is really important.

    • Reasonable Opinion Ghost

    • Diddly: Basic B****

      But what if I just want to see boobs?

      • THE DUCK

        College area bars.

  • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

    At this age, even if by some chance I did get hitched, kids would be out of the question. Too old and tired to be chasing after some snot-nosed punk.

    • Miko363

      I feel kinda bad for my neighbors across the street. They got married late, realized it was now or never and had one kid. She was in her late 30s; he was almost 50. The kid is 8 now and seems to be having some problems/attitude issues/only child syndrome, and they clearly don’t have the energy to deal with it. It’s not a great situation.

      • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

        Yeah, I don’t want to be in my fifties dealing with a teenager, no thanks. My parents did that and it aged them about 20 years.

        • Miko363

          No, not at all. When I turn 50, my wife will be 46 and the kids will be 20 and 18 so I think we timed it pretty good.

  • Devin Harris

    I really want some chick fil a but going at noon is like giving up your life

    • DAJackson7

      Kill 90% of your lunch time waiting to order.

      • Devin Harris

        It’s not worth it

    • Matt_Indeed

      I had chick fil a for the first time in like 6 years last week. It was good.

      • Devin Harris

        It always is

    • Diddly: Basic B****

      Going to CFA ANY time takes at least 30 minutes

  • THE DUCK

    Obviously, when in a book store the same etiquette rules against being gross are still in force. You are in public, after all. Don’t be the guy sitting in the reading chair sweating and occasionally moaning as you read a Sailor Moon collection.

    • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

      …wha? Are you speaking from personal experience?

    • TatR!

      also don’t bend the spines on books

    • Matt_Indeed

      I worked in a bookstore for 3 years. Never saw that happen.

      • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

        That was an oddly specific example.

        • Matt_Indeed

          Very.

  • Matt_Indeed

    Cute girl showing leg today. Yay.

  • Matt_Indeed

    In case anyone was wondering, it was a Borders books.

    • THE DUCK

      Yay!

      • Matt_Indeed

        Borders was great. We played live music in the cafe every Saturday night.

  • TatR!

    I’m going home. May be back in an hour.

  • Matt_Indeed

    As a matter of fact, I played at the cafe twice.

  • Diddly: Basic B****

    Dammit now I want to go to a bar and ask a girl why she’s not at a bookstore with Duck

    • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

      “With what?!?” *slap*
      *calls after her* “I said with Duck! DUCK!”

      • Diddly: Basic B****

        I SAID YOU’RE WIFE MATERIAL

  • Matt_Indeed

    Just had some orange chicken with fried rice and an egg roll and it was the bomb(dot)com.

    • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

      I almost ordered that yesterday, but some places like to add stuff that just feels unnecessary, like tomatoes and peppers. I don’t want tomatoes and peppers.

      • Matt_Indeed

        This one had tiny cooked slices of oranges in it. Really smacked you in the mouth. Good stuff.

        • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

          Sounds delicious.

  • Matt_Indeed

    Jesus, I just realized it’s been almost 13 years since I worked at Borders.

    • Matt_Indeed

      Nailed 2 co-workers when I worked there too.

      25 years old and not a care in the world.

      • DAJackson7

        When i was 25 i was a manager for a chain of convenience stores……yeah guess which girls i hired. 100% success rate with them too

        • TatR!

          that is convenient indeed

  • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

    So the Bulls are already a disaster? Great!

  • Diddly: Basic B****

    If Duck creates a list of pickup lines, I will use them on girls at a bar. I’ll even go stalk a bookstore and creep people out!

    • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

      I assume most of the lines will reference a creamee in some way.

      • Brian_Bayless

        “You, me, and a creamee”

      • THE DUCK

        “Creemee”

    • Matt_Indeed

      “Hey girl, you see that *** Randy Orton match last night?”

      • Diddly: Basic B****

        Randy Orton is too American, Duck would want me to mention the latest Dragon Gate title match

        • THE DUCK

          This is true.

      • Devin Harris

        I wish I was still single. I would totally do this

    • THE DUCK

      I’d just grab a book and go to one of the reading nooks and read. If a lady sat down in one of the same nooks, you just strike up a conversation about what they’re reading.

      Really the trick is just to find not shitfaced women.

  • Mikey

    Let’s put our funds together and start a new Borders.

    • Matt_Indeed

      Sounds like a money loser.

  • “He knew what he signed up for. I mean, I guess it still hurts.”

    You’re all heart, Mr. President

      • Matt_Indeed

        Yes.

  • Facts

    I currently do not have any advice for picking up the ladies other than make sure they dont keep going back and forth on what they want.

  • Mikey

    Well, hello?

  • Devin Harris

    I’m at CFA! Let’s see how long. I used the app to order

    • DAJackson7

      I grabbed Taco Johns on my way back from moving this dumb woman’s computer (yes just move it, and it’s wireless so fuck her) and forgot about Chick fil A. Damnit

    • Diddly: Basic B****

      I can’t use an app to order food. Maybe a pizza, but not fast food.

      • Devin Harris

        Why not? It was faster than if I would have stood in line

        • TatR!

          Wetherspoons the best chain pub/bar here has the app for food and drinks and they always priotise app orders because they want to sell the app. So much better than waiting around at the bar trying to get peoples attention

          • Devin Harris

            Only negative here is that the app is only for to-go orders

        • DAJackson7

          Do you then go in and pick it up or how does that work?

          • Devin Harris

            They bring it to the car.

          • DAJackson7

            Awe hell yeah. I’m going to have to download that

  • Devin Harris

    I’ve met women wrestling fans but not smarks

  • Diddly: Basic B****

    That meeting sucked. Q3 Town Hall. At least it was the edited version where they took out the CEO taking pauses to sip beer and do that “ahhhhh” thing afterward

    I spent most of it reading Bones and Bayless’ screenshots of posts in our Snapchat group!

  • THE DUCK

    I just got that sinking feeling of realizing I agreed to cook dinner tonight and have no memory of what it is or if I need to buy anything. I have four hours to figure it out.

    • Miko363

      Get some plates and silverware together. That should take 5 minutes. You now have 3 hours and 55 minutes to find a good takeout place and dump the food on each plate.

      • THE DUCK

        I inspired a good deal of annoyed Facebook comments one time when I bought a sub from Subway, put it on a plate at home and took a picture of it.

  • Mikey

    Girl I’m talking to wanted to go to a showing of Princess Bride tonight. I can’t go, but that’s a good sign she likes that movie.

    • I don’t think that means what you think it means.

    • Marv

      Also probably a good sign that she’s dumb.

      • Mikey

        Good.

      • TatR!

        fuck the love for that movie is very irrational to me

        • Brian_Bayless

          Star Wars too

          • TatR!

            Like Scott would reference Princess Bride all the time, for 30 years the same references. and for why

          • Marv

            That basically sums up our entire generation. It’s not good at all but it was around when we were kids and since apparently none of us want to grow up it’s actually amazing!

          • TatR!

            Me, smart 2017: Transformers moves are terrible ofc
            Them, nerds: Actually the original cartoon mov-
            Me, smart 2017: FFFFFFFFFFFFFFuckofffffffffffffffff

          • Marv

            The flip side of that of course being, “They weren’t true to Bumblebee’s character! They’ve ruined my whole childhood! I’m 34 and this is vital to my happiness as an adult!”

          • THE DUCK

            I like when people older than me tell me it still makes them cry.

          • TatR!

            because the tape recorder that turns into a truck dies, give me a break

        • Marv

          It’s so bad. It can’t decide if it wants to be funny or serious.

          • TatR!

            that bit where he repeats the same line over and over it’s fucking terrible

          • Marv

            I’d much rather watch Men In Tights, at least that’s actually funny

  • TatR!

    Finally we’ve attacked the sacred cow that is Princess Bride. What’s next on the universally beloved list that we can go after!

    *checks*

    It’s TatR! Nooooo! It can’t be!

    • Brian_Bayless

      Robby Roadsteamer needs more love.

    • THE DUCK

      It’s a good movie for 6 to 9 year olds.

      • TatR!

        nice

      • Brian_Bayless

        Absolutely. Loved it at that age.

        Watched it again a few years ago and still holds up as good but I wouldn’t obsess over it or anything.

        • DAJackson7

          That is the correct response.

        • THE DUCK

          Just a movie.

    • Everyone who attacked The Princess Bride will be banned

  • Marv

    Watched the first two episodes of GoT last night. It’s fucking stunning how well they set up the entire final season in the first 30 minutes or so of the show.

    • TatR!

      interesting. you watching it all through?

      • Marv

        Yep. I want to see if this time around the red wedding is as funny as it was last time.

  • THE DUCK

    I liked Short Circuit 2 when I was 6. It… does not hold up.

    • TatR!

      thats where I learned that Indian people were just americans doing funny voices

    • DAJackson7

      Ugh…i tried that a couple years ago and it is bad

  • TatR!

    I thought it was cool that Short Circuit could read books so fast

    • DAJackson7

      That is how Johnny 5 became alive!

  • THE DUCK

    The Land Before Time is shockingly well done.

  • THE DUCK

    I think I’m not going to watch any movies I haven’t seen from before 1995.

    • TatR!

      they all wear stupid clothes back then it would be distracting

    • Diddly: Basic B****

      The Sandlot kind of sucks

      • THE DUCK

        Already saw it anyways.

    • DAJackson7

      I agree with this

    • TatR!

      Duck is like the anti-fox

  • Diddly: Basic B****

    Only 4 hours left before I never have to see Fatty Who Tells People I’m Bringing Guns To Work To Shoot Everyone ever again!

    • TatR!

      oh shit is he coming in to shoot everyone

      • Diddly: Basic B****

        No she is leaving for another job!

        • DAJackson7

          Happy day for you!

        • TatR!

          Ohhh she tells people YOU are bringing guns in

          • Diddly: Basic B****

            Yes! I told the story a few weeks ago and I thought everyone would remember!

          • TatR!

            I did remember but only after I replied!

          • Diddly: Basic B****

            Cool! This is why you’re the best poster here!

          • Don’t lie to him.

  • THE DUCK

    Goodbye Raging Bull, I had plenty of chances to watch you and did not.

    • DAJackson7

      and the Godfather!

      • TatR!

        I feel like I don’t need to see the Godfather after hearing the O+A crowd go on and on about it for twenty years

        • TatR!

          but I did just download it all last week, maybe I should do it

          • TatR!

            like ten hours though

          • DAJackson7

            Eh, i’m sure it’s not that great, most movies aren’t.

        • Diddly: Basic B****

          It’s very slow

          • TatR!

            VLC media player 1.5x speed it is!

        • Devin Harris

          I did the whole “Watch this classic movie” spiel to my nephew about 10 years ago about the Godfather. he was around 15 at the time. He just couldn’t be bothered with it. F— him anyway

  • So, I’ve got my tickets to see The Princess Bride tonight. And TatR is banned.

    I expect irrational opinions from Marv. Everyone else, don’t encourage him.

  • Marv

    I’m learning a lot about China today.

    • No one cares.

      I’d learn another language so no one thinks you are American.

          When i was backpacking around Europe it didn’t take me long to sew a Maple Leaf on my backpack

    • Marv

      How was cancer?

      • Diddly: Basic B****

        Cute Cancer Girl was showing him her leg!

        • Marv

          She only has one? =(

        • Matt_Indeed

          Not me personally.

      • Matt_Indeed

        It was depressing as usual.

        FYI: You have an 8.2% chance of living longer than 5 years with Pancreatic Cancer.

        • Marv

          If I’m going to get one, that’s the one I want. My uncle got diagnosed and was dead within a month. I think I’d prefer that to some form that takes years.

          • Matt_Indeed

            Yeah, I guess. I mean, especially if you knew it was incurable.

  • Matt_Indeed

    I see we were spitting out hot takes below. Nice.

  • Boss Macklin

    I have never seen The Princess Bride. There are a ton of classic 80’s movies I haven’t seen.

    • Marv

      Just watch Men In Tights instead.

    • Matt_Indeed

      It’s okay. They’re just movies. If you like them, it’s okay. If you don’t like them, it’s okay. If you haven’t seen them, it’s okay.

      • This is demonstrably false.

      • TatR!

        Is it okay that I don’t like foo fighters and think the beatles are overrated yet

        • Matt_Indeed

          No. That’s wrong because I say it is.

          • TatR!

            unban me!

            No.

    • Me neither.

      • Matt_Indeed

        We know.

  • Marv

    Random video about Bill Gates’ house, he has guests use these pins that clip on to their clothes that control the temperature and accessibility for people around his house. So basically he uses that tech Robert Redford had in Winter Soldier and that fucking rules.

    • DAJackson7

      when you said he had pins they wore that was the first thing i thought of

  • Gord Downie who was the lead singer of The Tragically Hip – an enormously successful band within Canada but who never gained traction anywhere else – died of brain cancer today.

    I’d lapsed as a fan in recent years, but I’ve seen them like 10 times and they were very much a part of growing up Canadian for anyone my age +/- 15 years. Except probably Hartkiller.

    RIP Gord is what I’m getting at here. It’s been a pleasure doing business with you.

    • Marv

      That sucks. I feel like I remember hearing them in the 90s. The weirdest part of this middle age thing (other than somehow being generally hornier than I was at 13) is watching people I feel are in my same age bracket start dying from oldie time diseases. Like I have people in my graduating class that have died of heart attacks, that ain’t cool, we’re not this old yet I don’t think.

  • Matt_Indeed

    💩💩💩

    • Matt_Indeed

      I pride myself on my regularity.

  • Well, this place has jumped the shark. I guess I’ll go back over to the BoD. At least I understand the bad opinions over there comes from a disappointment with their lives.

    • Matt_Indeed

      I love Princess Bride and anyone who doesn’t can eat monkey poop.

      • TatR!

        It’s okay. They’re just movies. If you like them, it’s okay. If you don’t like them, it’s okay. If you haven’t seen them, it’s okay.

  • Matt_Indeed

    I don’t care about the Transformers cartoon movie though. It wasn’t a big deal to me when I was a kid.

    • Well, I suppose I’ll allow it

    • I like that picture.

    • DAJackson7

      Same, and i have it on DVD so maybe i should watch it sometime after baseball season is over

    • THE DUCK

      I’m just young enough where it was before my childhood. It is this odd cultural oddity to me.

  • Hello

  • Marv

    So now I’m skipping around a Tragically Hip playlist. Maybe I didn’t hear these guys back in the day. I like them though. I mean they aren’t incredible but they’re not bad by any means. All their videos are super 90s too they’re great.

    • Yeah, this makes sense…

      • Marv

        They’re just rookin and roolin and havin a good time

        • Out of respect for the dead and those who mourn him, I will keep the majority of my opinion to myself.

    • They could sell out the ACC for three nights in a row, but cross the border and they’d be playing little clubs.

      The farewell show last year after he announced his illness was televised and 1/3 of the entire country watched it.

      • DAJackson7

        So…are they or Rush Canada’s biggest band?

  • I’ve been very busy today
    and had only posted over there a little. didn’t even bother over here because I figured I wasn’t really around. then Scottyflamingo said “Let me use smaller words since reading is obviously not a strong point” since I was disagreeing with his desire to see CM Punk pro wrestle till his body gives out instead of doing what he wants with his life…… so I’m here.

    • but why…?

      • why am I here? I don’t know .. sorry I’ll be better next time and stay over there

        • That’s not what I meant.

          Why does anyone still care about CM Punk?

          • Brian_Bayless
          • Marv

            What a douche, who gets a posed photo with Jimmy Hart

          • Brian_Bayless

            Hopefully someone else whose mother doesnt cut their own hair

          • Marv

            …damn

          • That was a fantastic burn

          • Marv

            Very hurtful.

          • Brian_Bayless

            Me making fun of his haircut hurt you?

          • I don’t think he was talking about you… unless your mom cuts your hair…

            Does your mom cut your hair? Does Edna? It doesn’t look like it…

          • Brian_Bayless

            He already told us some lady with big cans cuts his hair

          • No, some lady with big cans SHAVES him.

          • Marv

            Bazongas, they’re bazongas jesus have some class

          • Matt_Indeed

            He looks exactly like a wrestling fan.

          • Can I punch him…? I really wanna punch him.

          • Brian_Bayless

            Not only will I not stop you, I encourage you to do so

          • I feel like even Jimmy Hart should want to be punching him

          • THE DUCK

            Is that the article that led to Phred revealing he cuts his own hair?

          • Brian_Bayless

            Its the entire Twitter feed.

            He makes Tim Kail tolerable

          • Who’s this now?

          • Someone I want to punch.

          • He was saying Cody was doing things the right way and that is how Punk should have done things (paraphrasing)

          • Matt_Indeed

            Because he said things that sounded like they weren’t approved but were approved.

          • Mike Mears

            He’s my favorite wrestler ever and I’d love to see him wrestle again, were that question posed to me.

          • It was not.

          • Mike Mears

            I know. I’m just saying that’s how I’d answer such a question.

          • But would you tell Peyton that reading was not his strong point?

          • Mike Mears

            His reading seems fine. I have no strong opinion.

          • That’s fine and I would like to see him wrestle again if it’s what he wanted to do but I am also not someone angry at him for not following Cody’s example of how to live his life and run his career

          • retroactively at that

          • Mike Mears

            Well yeah, that I totally agree with. He’s doing what he wants, Cody’s doing what he wants. They’re both right.

          • except Cody should wear gloves……….he has skinny wrists

          • Mike Mears

            Yeah, I don’t know what his gear is now but he used to be…too naked. Some gloves, knee pads, arm sleeves like Finn…something.

          • Hey sorry I didn’t get back to you I kept getting pulled away at work. we are not the most dazzling of towns. What kinds of things do you like to do?

          • Mike Mears

            I’m pretty low key. Give me a bar with a decent beer selection that’s not crowded, yet not a ghost town, and I’m good.

            I’m not as entertaining as Marv, but I’m down to grab a drink tomorrow if you want.

  • Matt_Indeed

    I want to jump a shark

    • DAJackson7

      I’d jump that dancing shark to get to Katy Perry

      • Matt_Indeed

        Is it to talk to her? Because I’d rather talk to the dancing shark.

        • DAJackson7

          If by talk you mean put my hand over her mouth, then sure

            That’s generally the rule right? I’ve gone more than three and it generally was when i’d be okay.

          • I hate working with a bunch of smokers.

          • Mike Mears

            I work smoking with a bunch of haters.

    Everyone? All the people?

    Oh dear and he has a shirt that says Virtue. Stop doing that.

    • Brian_Bayless

      He calls you a “mark” when you respond.

      That’s his only comeback

      • Marv

        I’ve got a theory that he changed his profile pic on October 12, 2017 to an image of him doing an ice bucket challenge because it actually took an entire year for the ice bucket challenge to filter down to him. There was him and four people in Tanzania that hadn’t had a friend challenge them online yet.

    Virtue: I need a haircut. I want to wear my new Survivor Series shirt to show these marks I totally owned.

    One of the many reasons why you shouldn’t use Twitter.

    • THE DUCK

      Twitter is like any other power tool:

      It can be used to either build a nice coffee table or to saw off your hand. It is dependant solely on the user.

    Since we’re mocking something bad from wrestling Twitter, I’ll counteract it with something nice from it:

        Hold on, now he proabably has other unhip nerd guy friends that all join in to give each other pleasure so that they can “be prepared for women” and say they aren’t gay

        • Marv

          He does there was a photo of said dudes. There were like three of them and they all had neckbeards and then there was one hot chick and a guy sitting behind her that looked like he had a job and thus absolutely had to have been the boyfriend.

          Also you know that girl tells that boyfriend how lame his friends are every time they leave that house.

    • He’s a mark. And probably a virgin. Marv is checking him out to see if he’s Geekery material.

  • Diddly: Basic B****

    Bayless, make sure you make Dave Meltzer a Ned Flanders type character, that everybody except Virtue loves

  • My wife said she was coming home early today and would be back by 4. At last check, she had not left her office yet.

    I just want a nap before the movie

    • Marv

      It would be funny if she was just in some park somewhere taking a nap too.

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    Well…that was something. You guys really turn the weirdest shit into fads around here.

  • Marv

    STOP EVERYTHING STOPS

    Here’s Virtue cutting a promo oh dear lord on a pony lmao

    • Marv

      This is someone’s real life.

      • chicagodem79

    Virtue meets Robby Roadsteamer

    Virtue: Ha, you’re a mark!
    Robby: Quit looking at my hamper, dude! You fail at life at five different levels!
    Virtue: You’re a mark for responding to me
    Robby: I’ll gas up the plane and kick your ass, dude!
    Virtue: Typical mar….. (Robby backhands across the face)
    Robby: You just got hit with the Pence Shock!

  • Marv

    Here’s a more modern promo where he uses a stop sign as a prop this is the funniest thing I’ve seen in a month

  • What’s good, scrotes?

  • Brian_Bayless

    Virtue vs. Tim Kail. Who wears the belt better?

    • Marv

      lol

    • Brian_Bayless

      I just laughed out loud at work.

      I’m in the hallway now because I couldnt watch all of that and not laugh hysterical

      • Marv

        That was some dramatic delivery in that video lol

        • Brian_Bayless

          I havent seen drama like that since Sophie’s choice

    • chicagodem79

      Ok, I’m certain this dude would be a psycho killer if he didn’t do this stuff…..I’m glad he’s doing it.

      They call this the “Future of Wrestling?”

      The audacity.

  • Marv

    FF to 7:40 to see the ref touch a guys dick and then what can only be described as extremely awkward gay foreplay

    • Brian_Bayless

      Its the only foreplay they’ll ever get

      • Marv

        They do a two minute long test of strength spot where they just keep rubbing their faces in each others crotches

        • Brian_Bayless

          Ew

        • Facts

          What a bunch of homos

    • This is very unsettling. Mostly because of the heavy breathing of the guy doing the filming.

        Burt Reynolds is right behind the camera with a cigar

        • Brian_Bayless

          I laughed out loud at my desk again

      I’m sold.

  • Marv

    ….holy fuck

    He did a move on this guy, kind of an F5 wanna be and calling it “The Virtue-Lizer” lmfao

  • Facts

    I guess if you are 35 and doing this then you might be VIRTURELIZED in the relationship dept.

  • Brian_Bayless

    Lewis B. Finkelstein has a Twitter too and he has something to say

    There’s a whole army of these assholes

    https://twitter.com/EGW_LBF/status/920389004293541896

    • Marv

      Mere distractions. The real star is Virtue.

      • Brian_Bayless

        Lewis is simply riding the coattails to spare himself from the Virtuelizer.

        Smart move

  • Marv

    So he made up his own really creepy wrestling league then when they introduce him for his public dry banging they say he’s the world champ of that wrestling league and already in their hall of fame.

  • Facts
  • Brian_Bayless
    • Diddly: Basic B****

      What a mark! Dogshit Mootzer is OBSESSED!!!

    • Marv

      Ugh I”m back to just feeling bad for this idiot again. He’s got Downs or something.

      • Brian_Bayless

        Nah, just a personality disorder

    • chicagodem79

      This HAS to be a bit….nobody can be that delusional…..right?

      • Brian_Bayless

        Its Russocentric stuff

  • Marv

    Alright I swear I’m quitting this time for real, I x’d out of his youtube channel. I’m going cold turkey.

  • Guys, I hate to cast aspersions, but I think this Virtue guy might never have seen a titty that wasn’t digital.

    • Brian_Bayless

      Tits are for marks

  • Devin Harris

    Matt’s not around, right? Cause Matt would have put a stop to this

    • Marv

      Someone threw a Skittle down the hall he’s been gone for 15 minutes

  • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

    And somewhere Ferrari is going “I thought I got away from the BoD”

    • Marv

      Whatevs, shitting on that guy was a fun hour.

      • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

        Oh I was laughing my ass off myself

    • Brian_Bayless

      Why does he hate fun?

    • Diddly: Basic B****

      No Way, Jose

    • It’s kind of sad how fast we revert when Bayless decides to find a lesser being and make fun of him.

      I really do wish he would confine that to the BoD.

      • chicagodem79

        No you don’t….deep down inside you really enjoy it…..at least occasionally lol.

        • Not really. You don’t know me, dude, don’t make assumptions.

          • chicagodem79

            Bad day eh? lol

          • *eyeroll*

            I’ve made my stance clear on this the whole time. You want to be miserable human beings, do it on Scott’s site with the rest of the degenerates.

          • chicagodem79

            I’ll drop it, but in the universe of message boards, there’s a lot worse that can happen than making fun of a guy who takes himself WAY too seriously and appears to be a troll. I’ve seen worse happen on this board lol. Relax man, you got a good thing going on here.

          • And I’d like to keep it that way.

      • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

        Understandable

      • Brian_Bayless

        Eh, he’s a dick.

        • That’s not a justification

          • Brian_Bayless

            I had no idea he even made videos.

            And yeah, he’s a Twitter troll with a backyard wrestling fed that takes himself far too seriously. Who gives a fuck.

          • I do. You want to spend an hour making fun of him? Fine, fucking do it somewhere else.

          • Brian_Bayless

            Calm down, Charlie

  • Facts

    This shit is so embarrassing Id rather my wife have found out I was cheating than watching this guy.

    • Brian_Bayless

      You’re wife finding out you cheated on her with another guy is probably less embarrassing.

      • Facts

        I cant stop laughing at the Freddy Krueger song

  • chicagodem79

    Is it wrong that I have mixed feelings on this obviously odd person? Like I kind of commend him for being….whatever the hell he is, openly and isn’t holding back. At least he’s being honest about it….but then again, the lack of self-awareness is pretty shocking and really creepy.

    • Marv

      The misplaced confidence would be admirable if it wasn’t directly related to him being a nutter bar.

      • chicagodem79

        Like I could actually envision him going up to a girl, and getting totally rejected because he’s a creeper, but then he would say something like “she’s just a mark, women love me”.

        • Marv

          Yeah exactly. That’s what makes the confidence senseless. Like he’s not some guy that’s been through hell but maintained a super positive attitude. He’s a nutjob that doesn’t realize his life is shit lol

        • He would undoubtedly show the girl Meltzer’s response to his tweet as a proud achievement.

    • ProjectBlue

    • DAJackson7

      Is he in a competition with Mick Jagger?

      • Diddly: Basic B****

        He didn’t start the fire

        • RudoWakening

          Pretty sure he did

  • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

    On another note, been jamming to Jason Newsted’s metal album he put out a few years ago. Still pretty decent

  • Matt_Indeed

    If I had to ban Bayless, that would be the weirdest moment in the last 5 years on these sites for me.

  • RudoWakening

    Okay, I’ve read Virtue’s tweets and columns. He’s worse than Kail by far. And he really seems to hate DOGSHIT MOOTZLER

    • RudoWakening

      And that is all I will say on the matter.

  • Bayless is banned. Anyone else want one while I’m annoyed?

    • Marv

      …well it was a good run

    • Matt_Indeed

      There’s no way you banned Bayless.

  • THE DUCK

    I picked up Hellblazer Vol 2 & Vol 3 this weekend. Jamie Delano is weird in that he’s very, very upfront with the 80s British social commentary, but he’s very average at the actual writing. Everything is a solid B-.

    • THE DUCK

      I appear to have added comic talk at an awkward moment.

      • Marv

        You really have a canny knack for the wrong thing always lol

        • THE DUCK

          That will teach me to leave for half an hour lol.

          • Dwayne

            I left for more than that and i’m confused.

      • chicagodem79

        Duck! I’ve been meaning to tell you, I actually took a brief swing through Vermont last week on my mini vacation after my business trip to Connecticut. Seemed like a state with nothing but trees, resorts, and bed & breakfasts.

        • THE DUCK

          Ooh which side? Southwest is like an extra upstate NY.

          • chicagodem79

            I think it was the Bennington area near route 7.

          • THE DUCK

            Bennington is what I was thinking of. Just rustic yet nice down there.

  • Devin Harris

    I have to take my niece to go get fitted for her dress. She doesn’t seem to be anxious to get this done. She wants to hang with her boyfriend.

    • ProjectBlue

      Stooges were a pain in the ass on that type of stuff. Not as big a deal for boys anyway but still so much “eh, will do it when we get to it” procrastination for shit that cost me a lot of money for one, I didn’t really care about for two, and I really didn’t want to wait to the last minute for for 3

      • Devin Harris

        Amen

    • Dwayne

      So let him do it.

      • Devin Harris

        He doesn’t have a car

        • Dwayne

          She sure knows how to pick them, huh?

          • Devin Harris

            20 year olds have the best decision making skills

  • THE DUCK

    Anyways, I appreciate that The Doll’s House serial killer convention in Sandman ties into The Family Man arc in Hellblazer and The Boogeyman in Swamp Thing. It’s a cool shared universe thing without actually being a crossover.

    • Marv

      That’s one of my least favorite stories, though knowing that now does make it a little cooler.

      • THE DUCK

        Yeah. Swamp Thing actually kills the missing serial killer that the magazine writer is pretending to be.

        The Family Man is supposed to be the guest of Honor but CConstantine kills him after he kills John’s estranged father.

      • TatR!

    – Kenny Reigns

    • chicagodem79

      I thought Kenny wasn’t banned, he just doesn’t post anymore?

      • Diddly: Basic B****

        We’ve lost Kenny but we’re gaining Kendra

      • Dwayne

        Kenny became too cool for this place.

      • Diddly: Basic B****

        Bayless banned!

            Norton was on A+A last night apparently

          • Marv

            Yeah it was boring. They talked about nothing and there was no J&A dynamic because Artie just kept talking about his Stern years.

          • TatR!

            oh :/ are you bailing?

          • Marv

            Yeah for now.

      WHAT?

  • There’s a hot new Big Steaming Pile column awaiting review, so you guys have something to look forward to later.

  • chicagodem79

    My solar keyboard appears to have died after over 5 years of noble service in this office….a moment of silence please….

  • THE DUCK

    Another thing I’ve liked:

    The Orville did a bit using the “android learning human experience” trope where they were trying to teach their android humor via practical jokes. They explain after pranking the Android that he has to retaliate with another prank when it Is least expected. So the pilot who pranked him wakes up the next morning with his leg amputated and hidden somewhere on the ship, because robots are sociopaths.

  • Mike Mears

    Shelton, if Bayless getting banned has taught me anything….it’s nothing because I have no clue what’s going on

  • Comdukakis

    Wow did I miss stuff.

  • Rowlf

    Well, Bayless is gone,
    Say it ain’t true,
    Got banned for talkin’ ’bout a guy named Virtue.

    Ferrari had enough,
    Of Brian saying stuff,
    About a rasslin’ guy who don’t seem to have a clue.

    But if there’s one thing I know,
    ‘Bout the man who had to go,
    Is that Bayless is a true American Patriot!

    • Comdukakis

      If bayless is really gone, that’s bullshit

  • THE DUCK

    I like The Sandman but not as much as most. Preacher and Y: The Last Man were my two big Vertigo comics.

    • Mikey

      What the hell happened?

      • THE DUCK

        It doesn’t matter yet. We have a bad habit of snowballing drama as a group and it’s probably best to not do it or gossip for a bit.

        • Diddly: Basic B****

          For me it’s just a matter of wanting to be “in” on the joke and catch an upvote here and there. I should work on that.

        • Matt_Indeed

          I may have told Rick Ross I wanted to ban him for his nickname. That’s about it.

      • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

        You made that one joke we all ignored!

        But I just had a feeling I’d do something to set Bayless off and all hell would break loose. Even now, I tread lightly based on our BoD interactions.

        • Boss Macklin

          Just don’t question Meltzer around Bayless and you’ll be fine.

          • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

            Typo. Then again, I had a run-in with him, too, LOL.

  • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

        • BCAAs?

          • RudoWakening

          • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

            I think Marv unbanned him hoping cooler heads would prevail.

          • possibly

        My theory: Bayless was getting overwhelmed by the BoD and Scott and all the insanity and saw this as a place to let his hair down and have fun in a way that he can’t over there. And Ferrari said “nope, not on my watch”.

        • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

          Spoilered for those who don’t give a hoot.

        • Matt_Indeed

          I think both of them were bored and made a joke.

          • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

            I don’t think Boss Man was joking. He seems pretty annoyed with this becoming BoD West.

          • Matt_Indeed

            Literally one joke that lasted an hour out of one day. I think everyone will be okay.

          • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

            What seems minor to you and me might not be to the guy who has made it clear what kind of place he wants this to be.

        • Boss Macklin

          Every time I have been here and seen Bayless he’s been doing some random running gag like song lyrics or talking about some person I’ve never heard of. It surprised me because it usually isn’t his MO.

          • I miss the dinosaur pics. And Bayless loves running gags. Sbarro.

            Sbarro.

          • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

            Exactly. I think he’s blowing off steam. Scott can’t be easy to deal with at the best of times.

          • Matt_Indeed

            Scott doesn’t pay Bayless. So it’s on Bayless if he doesn’t like his situation.

        We don’t get enough stories here

        • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

          That hotel room story blew my mind.

          • Comdukakis

            was that the one where he fell into his friend’s mouth or something?

          • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

            YUP

          • Comdukakis

            just epic.

            I actually liked talking non personal stuff with the guy but he was so full of bullshit about anything personal

          • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

            But why, if you were gonna make shit up, would you choose THAT?

          • Comdukakis

            that’s the rub isn’t it? I mean i’m honest about myself here. Why would I make shit up about my marriage, issues or not, and having a kid who was into wrestling (she’s kinda not so much anymore)? If i’m making stuff up, I’m a fighter pilot with a million dollars and a 20 year old with an ass like Alexa Bliss

          • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

            And I would not be a 39 year old bachelor going to to dialysis three days a week, LOL. I’d be, like, Bruno Mars or something.

            Dwayne’s theory was that was Biff telling me he’d be down to suck my dick lol

            Oh bullshit of course you believe it. The ego on you.

            Doesn’t mean that theory isn’t totally true.

          • Boss Macklin

            I don’t want to make sweeping declarations but that was the high point of the BoD.

          • Marv

            Lord what a twisted affair that was.

          • Boss Macklin

            If he would have just said he had a gay experience and sucked a dick I doubt we would be talking about it today. But the Machiavellian set up of the entire situation makes it memorable and hilarious.

        I never said the first season wasn’t awesome as hell.

        • Comdukakis

          episode 2 is just about perfect. Just spectacular how they set up everything to come

        • ….I’m just saying.. a show you mock and gave up on at least once…you are on your second watch of… there is a little ember inside you that likes witches and dragons and it’s growing

          • Marv

            The dragons are cool. I never said they weren’t. I fully expect to once again go nuclear when I see that goddamn pussy ghost again. Probably even more so now because I know that it never does get explained or used again.

          • Comdukakis

            not a fan of the red woman stuff. from what I understand when I continue on in the books it will make more sense and Cat as a ghost or some weird shit is involved

          • Marv

            Cat Stark? Eww that’s even worse.

          • Comdukakis

            yeah, my least favorite character. She’s also worse to Jon Snow in the books

          • Marv

            I kind of like her on this rewatch now that I understand what all the Jon Snow stuff is about re: her sister

          • Comdukakis

            and honestly it’s Ned’s fault. if he was honest about jon’s parentage….

          • ProjectBlue

            A war 15 years sooner when Robert goes after Jon

          • yeah but he isn’t going to finish the books so………

          • ProjectBlue

            Boo….I’m hoping at least for Winds of Winter. Dream of Spring seems fucked though

    • Boss Macklin

      I’m surprised you stuck with it. I remember you going nuclear on the ghost baby lady thing and I thought you wouldn’t recover from that.

      • Marv

        This first season continues to be one of my favorite seasons of TV ever. Even more so now because I can see that basically every single scene is leading to something even if it’s not for another eight years.

        • Boss Macklin

          The pilot bored me to tears the first time I watched it but it builds great. Ned’s fate near the end of S01 really makes it clear that nobody is safe.

          • ProjectBlue

            Same, I think I made it to the dire wolves when it first came out. Didn’t seem something I’d be interested in. Gave the books a try a year or two later, binged the eps, now obsess over it a little too much

          • Comdukakis

            the opening was Walking dead like. I was lucky that my wife was already sold and rewatching so she told me stick with it. And they say Bran being pushed off is what sold everyone to stay with it

          • Boss Macklin

            I was the opposite with Walking Dead. Walking Dead hooked me immediately and lost me gradually, GoT couldn’t grab me and then lured me in over time.

  • Marv

    Four episodes in and the only part that has gotten kind of bad on the rewatch is how quickly Danaerys turns. In my memory that took a long time but on the rewatch it’s like half an episode from straight up rape to “I am a Khaleesi! And I’m pregnant! And it’s definitely a boy!”

    • Comdukakis

      it is a little slower in the book obviously

    • Professor Chaos

      she definitely is a heel for much of the last season

  • Comdukakis

    getting a big game from Tobias Harris tonight for my fantasy leagues (he’s in both)

  • Comdukakis

    jesus. watching pistons and apparently on the other channel Howard gave up 3 goals in 4 shots and Toronto dropped 4 in the 1st period on the Wings.

    • Boss Macklin

      Everything the Leafs shot went in. They switched goalies and gave another goal up immediately.

      • Comdukakis

        Wings have been playing well. This doesn’t bod well.

  • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

    Obvious toupee on ESPN is obvious.

  • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

    I assume the people who make the dollars off this stuff wants Yankees vs. Dodgers and it looks like they may get it.

    • Boss Macklin

      Not gonna lie, I kinda want that too. I’m not a diehard baseball fan so I want the sexy matchup.

    • Comdukakis

      I want Verlander. I hope he no hits the Yankees in game six. If the Astros don’t make it, I won’t even watch the world series.

  • Comdukakis

    I always wonder how much stuff writers plan, and how much falls into place. Like GOT. To me Varys didnt’ seem like he was going to be some protector of the common man and then…the character was liked and he was. Did Martin plan it all or did some stuff change as people liked or didn’t like stuff? And same with something like How I met your mother. Was it all planned out (at least the main outline) or did things change based on audience reaction and it still wound up in the same place?

    • Marv

      GoT I think is way more plotted than most other pieces of fiction. At least the show is, I can’t speak for the books.

      Sitcoms and stuff they just throw shit at the wall and hope people like it, praying they get enough airtime to find what it is people enjoy. A ton of shows start as one thing and wind up something else, Parks being a great example.

      • Comdukakis

        Robert Jordan had his Wheel of Time series planned out meticuously. So much so that someone else was able to finish it from notes when he died

      • ProjectBlue

        The show was until they went into warp drive. Dorne was supposed to be a lot different but right around the time it would have went further towards the book they said time was up

        • Marv

          Oh god I’m going to have to watch all that Dorne shit again

          • Comdukakis

            yeah my interest in Dorne is not much. if they had more naked lesbian sex maybe

          • ProjectBlue

            That and the house of undying and Sergio Ducksauce or whatever the fuck his name was were my pits

      • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

        Parks is weird because if not for Chris Pratt breaking out I’m not even sure what direction they would have gone in.

        • Marv

          Nowhere. They’d have quietly shut down halfway through season two.

          • Comdukakis

            yep. they switched gears from boring guy (can’t even remember his name now, Ann dated him) to the fun that was Ron, April, tommy, and Andy

          • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

            Yeah, they were pushing Mark Bananaramadingdong and Ann as the It Couple and that bombed like nobody’s business. Pratt kept them alive until Lowe and Adam Scott came to save the day.

          • Boss Macklin

            Season Two was such a dramatic change overall. Leslie’s character was overhauled, Andy was pushed up the card and both Chris and Ben showed up to completely change the show’s dynamic. Those are huge happenings in one season.

          • Comdukakis

            were ben and Chris season two? I thought that storyline was season 3

          • Boss Macklin

            They came in at the ass end of Season 2. With maybe 2 or 3 episodes left.

          • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

            And Ron changed, too, he seemed more like a Pointy-Haired Boss in Season One.

          • Boss Macklin

            Definitely. His character was thinly established in S01(hates government) but he was still kinda playing the ass kisser to the superiors as well which doesn’t match up with where he would go in Season 2.

          • Marv

            Yeah in Season Two Ron basically becomes mayor somehow and can just let Leslie do whatever

          • Boss Macklin

            Then you could also throw in Jerry and Donna going from background characters with literally no lines to actual contributors and April of course being more of a focal point.

            I think the only characters that stayed consistent from Season 1-2 were Mark and Tom.

          • Marv

            Funny enough I think Aziz was supposed to be the guy to carry that show originally.

          • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

            He was pretty muted in Season One. He turned up the…”Tomness” in Season Two and wasn’t afraid to look like a total wussbag.

          • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

    • ProjectBlue

      Really interesting. I’d think some bigger parts he had fairly plotted out. Someone like Varys though I’d bet he kept it fairly vague at first to see where it played out. There’s a lot of theories/weak support that he’s a Blackfyre and that was a possible another road to take him down

  • Marv

    Edna’s making dinner before we start episode five which means that tonight Team Cresto is eating unspiced chicken breast and white rice. Fucking hopeless.

    • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

      Is it at least baked chicken?

      • Marv

        Pan fried, she’s the worst cook in history

        • Comdukakis

          she should meet my mother in law.

        • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

          Pan fried is better than boiled.

          And she can’t claim that title unless my cousin abdicates.

          • Comdukakis

    The only bad part about this rewatch is that oh we both hated Littlefinger so fucking bad all the way through the first watch just so so so much that guy is the worst and now we know what he’s up to the whole fucking time and have to watch it all play out and that dude is THE WORST HE’S THE WORST

    • but the end is AMAZING…and if you watch my IG….Glorious (CHEAP PLUG)
      Blanche revealed to me she has watched that ending like 20 times

    • ProjectBlue

      Hatttttttttted how they handled him. Dude played all the angles and doesn’t know to play the freak show family better than that?

      • booo….. he over played his hand finally it was great

        • ProjectBlue

          Eh, if he trips into it or doesn’t know Bran’s brantarded maybe. They’re at winterfell for months at that point. At the least, have them be snowed in and he fucks up because he realizes things are going south and needs to get out

          • ProjectBlue

            …I mean, for most of the show he’s played off as the smartest guy in the room. The second Bran “Chaos is a ladder”‘d him, run

      • Marv

        That should have been an entire season long thing but they are blazing through the timeline faster than that last episode of Breaking Bad

    So another history teacher is leaving my work. We have a regular school and a magnet. I always wanted to teach in the magnet and interviewed 2x for it (got screwed both times because I am too valuable in current position). A lot of teachers are stepping up on my behalf to get that job. Big issue is if I get that job then principal has to replace my job.

    • ProjectBlue

      Ugh, that seems to be a positive in my district. They’ll screw people over for other reasons but they tend to let people put their best interests first in that kind of thing

    • My history teacher’s name was Fil and he liked you to call him by his first name. He was a bit of a weirdo, but he taught us about world war 1 by having us throw paper balls at each other, so he was ok.

    • ProjectBlue

      curious, is the magnet still part of your district? Difference on pay/benefits?

    • Literally all that I know about him is that he’s not the guy from Mad About You, and that’s confusing.

      • Matt_Indeed

        He’s in some things.

  • chicagodem79

    Always nice when you go to Popeye’s and ask for an extra biscuit, they give you 3 for the price of 1….

  • For the record, I have a short fuse. I’ve never denied that. Half the time, I use Marv saying me being annoyed is a bit as a cover to calm down and reset myself. Yes… Marv can be the voice of reason on occasion.

    But I have been clear that I want this place to not get sucked into some of the usual bullshit that caused this place to be created. And we devolve into it quite easily when it happens. So when I ask someone to knock it off… repeatedly… and I’m just ignored? Well… I don’t take it very well.

    And it doesn’t really matter if you think it’s not a big deal because it’s just a gag and you don’t think it’s bothering anyone. I care. I wouldn’t say it otherwise. If you don’t like it… well, you always have the other place. Feel free to stay over there.

    If I upset anyone here today, I do apologize. But it’s my house. My rules. You don’t have to like everyone, but show some decorum.

    Having said that… LET’S GO YANKEES!!

    • I never knew goofing on people like that bothered you. So now I know.

    • chicagodem79

      YOU HURT MY FEELINGS YOU PRUDE!!!!

      On a more serious note lol, my only point was to relax. We’ve gone through some real shit on this blog like the PK and Friendship nonsense and I think that got handled well. This bit was like a 2/10 on the drama scale so that was my perspective FWIW.

      • I understand that. But I disagree. I don’t give a damn about PK or whoever Friendship was (it wasn’t me), so banning them to keep the peace is an afterthought.

        I like Bayless. I have always liked Bayless. But I find his habit of coming here with some mouth breather on Twitter and setting up a string of people to make fun of them to be distasteful. And I’ve been telling him to stop since August.

        I didn’t ban Brian lightly. It wasn’t an easy choice, and I didn’t see it as 2/10. PK and Friendship were 2/10, they were trolls no one gave a shit about.

        • chicagodem79

          Eh, that’s fair, although the PK/Friendship stuff was a lot more annoying to a lot of people than you think.

          • I don’t doubt that, that any energy here was devoted them annoys me. And whenever they come back, they will always be banned.

    • Matt_Indeed

      Does it help to know I like Paul Rudd?

      • I… guess…?

        • Matt_Indeed

          Good. That’s all I got.

      • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

        He’s okay. He was great on Parks.

        “C’mon, gimme it. Gimme it, gimme it, gimme it, please?”

        • Matt_Indeed

          Just rewatched I Love You, Man with the wife. Delightful film.

    • RudoWakening

      The most frightening thing here is Marv being a voice of reason.

      I genuinely like everyone here (well, except for the one) and enjoy our conversations and occasional running gags and I definitely don’t want us to devolve and become another BoD (though it does occasionally offer entertainment betwixt all the annoying malware). We’re above that.

  • Professor Chaos

    Announced by the streaming service and Handler herself, “Chelsea” has officially been canceled after airing two seasons on the platform. The talk show, which went through a notable leadership change moving into its second season, was released once a week on Netflix and featured Handler interviewing different guests and offering her opinion on various current topics.

    While Netflix and Handler’s work together had appeared to be going well for the two, however, Handler has announced today that she and Netflix have decided to put an end to “Chelsea.” The veteran host says the move was partly made so that she can begin to invest more of her time to being an activist and fighting for the causes she believes in.

  • Personally I think the worst thing that I saw here today was TatR mentioning his cheese, onion, and mayonnaise sandwich. That sandwich should be banned.

  • chicagodem79

    Wait a minute……..Pacers 140 Nets 131?!?!

    Come on, that game sounds embarrassing.

  • Seriously, how the fuck did the Yankees beat Keuchel? Amazing. I think they’re going to the World Series, I really do…

    • Matt_Indeed

      Yeah. I just think they’re too young and stupid to realize they shouldn’t be doing these things.

    • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

      Commissioner Kenesaw Mountain Landis is salivating for a Yankees/Dodgers match-up, I’m sure.

  • Do you guys have concrete ping pong tables in the parks in your cities? They’re fairly common here.

    • chicagodem79

      Honestly, I’ve never heard of such a thing.

    Willson Contreras hit a damn 491 ft HR tonight. People here are freaked out about the Cubs, I just can’t build up any outrage, they broke the damn curse last year, just playing with house money this year.

    • Boss Macklin

      It is insanely hard to repeat. Making the playoffs and championship series a year after winning it all is a great feat. If anything their showing in this series could be criticized.

      • chicagodem79

        And people forget, this is still a very young team with a lot of young hitters that still need to develop. They still on average, except for Rizzo, strike out way too much so they’ll get better. They need a lot of help in the bullpen though, and I’m sure the management will address that in the offseason.

        • Boss Macklin

          Plus, they’re playing a very good team. Sometimes the other team is better.

    I like that they didn’t go the Starfleet Academy route with Jake Sisko and let him do his own thing. They definitely made you think that’s the way the story was going, though.

    Watching leverage. Show was great. Season 5 sucked though

  • Stranger In the Alps

    Yankees/Dodgers World Series is the best option. We can get a video montage that includes Fernando Valenzuela striking out Willie Randolph!

    • I see nothing wrong there

      • Stranger In the Alps

        I don’t hate the Yankees like I should. Heck, with every postseason win they remind me that the Sox fell ass backwards into the division title and didn’t really deserve it.

  • Stranger In the Alps

    I’ve caught the Justice League trailer and my impression is always “too much way too soon”. Why couldn’t we get a Flash movie, or a Cyborg movie, or an AquamBWAHAHAHAHAHAHAhetalkstofish.

    • Aquaman just wrapped filming I believe

      • Stranger In the Alps

        Sure, but The Avengers template has been established. I have a feeling there will be no time for character development for these other guys. Unless they want to make a three and a half hour movie.

  • They announced back in, like, April, that The Princess Bride was coming back to theaters this week for two nights. I planned for tonight off in May. I bought tickets in early September, because I didn’t want to miss the chance.

    There were 12 people at the showing we went to.

    I may have gotten a bit overexcited about this 30th anniversary showing…

    • Stranger In the Alps

      Moviegoers in 2017: “I hate old movies”.

      • Ginger Mahal

        Ginger Mahal to moviegoers in 2017: “You deserve every bad thing that befalls your ignorant ass.”

        • Stranger In the Alps

          Blade Runner 2049, for example. Great looking film, but nobody went to see it because they think Blade Runner came out in 1947 or something.

          • Ginger Mahal

            I don’t understand this “I’m not old enough to have seen ____” mentality.

            That literally has nothing to do with anything.

            By that logic, please explain to me how I’m 29, and yet could write a thesis on Billy Wilder.

          • Mike Mears

            Probably with a computer, is how I guess you did it.

          • Like the Stranger Things kid on this Fios commercial I see all the time.

            “How’d you become such an expert on cable and internet?”

            *pauses, looks confused*

            “Um… the internet.”

            “Right…”

          • Who’s that?

          • Stranger In the Alps

            I mean, the gag in Captain America: Civil War where Spider-Man calls “The Empire Strikes Back” an old movie rings true. I mean, it’s old in terms of release date, but it’s crafted so well that it’s timeless.

      • Old movies are pretty bad.

        • Ginger Mahal

          Meet me on the playground at 3 o’clock, motherfucker.

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            Hurt him.

        • Stranger In the Alps

          Of course, my whole blog depends on older films. They really are better. CGI has ruined a lot of movies for me.

    • Ginger Mahal

      I’m just gonna quietly pretend this isn’t news to me and that I didn’t miss The Princess Bride in theaters tonight.

      • And Sunday.

        • Ginger Mahal

          Good thing I’ll be at work for like 15 hours on Sunday.

          It’s a conspiracy, I tells ya.

          • Last Sunday. I thought about going to that show, but Wednesday is easier to take off.

            The movie had an intro and outro interview with Rob Reiner about the making of the film. It was nice.

          • Ginger Mahal

            I’m not sure why Rob Reiner still being alive is news to me.

          • Because his career has sucked since the early 1990s?

          • Reasonable Opinion Ghost

            But he’s leading the #resistance against trump and Russia so he’s Actually Good.

          • That probably doesn’t have much impact on the quality of his movies. Well, maybe it does. Who knows…

          • Ginger Mahal

            That’s actually pretty damn reasonable.

  • Reasonable Opinion Ghost

    Adults who are picky eaters are the absolute worst.

    • Mike Mears

      This is the only thing I would change about my wife.

  • Mike Mears

    I just now realized the bar I’m at in Indy is the same one me and my friends went to before Raw a few years ago. I’ve gone out drinking in this town literally three times in my life and two of those times were the same place.

    • I’ve been to NYC twice. The first time I sought out a bar on Bayless’ advice. The second time I absolutely randomly stumbled on to the same bar while trying to get to another bar entirely and stayed there.

      • And neither time did you invite me out for a drink.

        Sad.

        You know what, I feel like we’ve had this interaction before. Forget it.

        • Hey, first time I was just like “I am participating on this blog remotely from New York City!” and Bayless jumped in, not you. That’s on you.

          Second time I would gladly have but I was with quite a gang of work people for the duration. Although I did recently learn that we went to a place that you guys all went to at your meetup as well. McKenna’s or something. Where they give you a free drink for every drink that you buy.

          Third time’s the charm.

          • Yup. We had this exact same convo a couple of times already.

          • Indeed.

            How’s your baby? Mine is all about crawling and standing up and chattering. He’s also really big into me right now and gets super excited to hang out with me. That kind of thing goes back and forth, but it’s always nice when it’s you.

          • My daughter is learning to stand! She’s crawling all over, too. I imagine the next couple weeks/months will be getting difficult.

          • It’s neat at this age to watch them discover such basic things that to them have been impossible for all of their existence. And then from that moment onward it’s a thing that they can just do.

    • chicagodem79

      I’ve been to Indy one time for a family reunion picnic. I’ve never hung out at any establishments or anything. One of these days, I’d like to catch a Big 10 tourney or something.

      • Mike Mears

        I have shamefully never been to the BTT. (I also think, that despite how much more fan-friendly the surrounding area is, that it should always be in Chicago. You have your premier event in your premier city. I…might be slightly biased here, but Illinois has actually won it more often in Indy.) The only times I’ve ever been in that building were for Raw and a Bulls/Pacers playoff game in 2011.

  • Boss Macklin

    In the new South Park game when you change the difficulty your character’s skin tone changes. The easier it gets the whiter you become. The harder you make the difficulty the darker you become.

    • chicagodem79

      Man, that’s some next level shit there lol

      • Boss Macklin

        It’s the small touches in these games that make them great. You can see the level of effort. Nothing is half assed and Anywhere a joke can be put in, it will be.

    • That’s pretty funny.

    Can you guys keep a secret?

    No?

    I don’t care, none of you know my peoples anyway except Marv and Dem, and they only met my wife, and she already knows:

    Found out today that my spawn is gonna be a girl. I had no preference and I’d be equally happy if it was a boy, but I’m still ecstatic.

    • chicagodem79

      Hey man, congrats! When is she due?

      • Mike Mears

        March 3.

        • Mike Mears

          Which I’m thrilled about, because I’ll be goddamned if I have a kid whose birthday will fall during the first weekend of the NCAAs now that Illinois might finally be awesome again

          • chicagodem79

            LOL, thatta boy, got your priorities intact!

    • Cool. Congrats.

    • That’s fantastic, sir. Congratulations.
