Trailer Thursdays – October 19

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

Here’s the thing… no one actually cares about this. It’s your open thread. Just talk about whatever.

If you really need a YouTube video embedded, here’s the second Black Panther trailer, which still looks pretty cool.

That’s it. That’s all you get this week. Enjoy.

  • TatR!

    Hello!

  • Reasonable Opinion Ghost

    It’s almost Christmas.

    • TatR!

      Woohoo!

    • More importantly, it’s only 17 days away from the official kick off of the holiday season – Steve-a-bration!

    • TatR!

      Matt, this is your reminder you only have 67 days left to finish your column

  • TatR!

    I feel I’ve really lost interest in new movies. Series I get excited about, music… Cinema though, all it’s reliance on Marvel and franchises and such… I think I’ve lost the impetus to find the hidden indie gems as well. Just too much great TV to watch I guess to feel the need to bother.

  • Today is my Friday.

  • ProjectBlue

    Aw, I care

    • Wait.. did you actually read the post? People do that here?

      • ProjectBlue

        Ha, I do anyway. Usually thoroughly. Only one I skim is the Wednesday one and stop for comics I’m familiar with

      • TatR!

        I did too! I always do! I even read Peytons Hot Gos(s) column!

      • I sometimes do!

      • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

        I do

  • TatR!

    Today I was reading about French musician Bertrand Cantat. There’s a to-do in France because a music magazine did an interview with him and put him on the front cover. Not only was he convicted of murder of a woman he was having an affair with in 2003 (and served just four years in prison for it) he also apparently drove his eventual ex-wife to suicide in 2010. Kind of an incredible bastard.

  • ProjectBlue
    • TatR!

      Can already predict the inevitable scandal when it turns out their awful dystopian software is ranking non-white candidates lower

      • I actually read that article yesterday. I don’t know if I found it or maybe linked to it from a sunny Napoleon post. But most of the guys writing this software and compiling the data that makes up its “intelligence” are relatively wealthy white men and there is very likely to be biases passed along, regardless of best efforts.

        • TatR!

          We need to stop everyone working in artificial intelligence pretty much immediately

  • Matt_Indeed

    To be honest, Ferrari, I always read your daily stuff. I usually don’t know much of what’s going on in nerddom, so I get most of it from you.

    • This is all news to me. Shocking, really.

      I apologize for today’s thread as well. I will return to form on Saturday, I promise.

      • Matt_Indeed

        No big deal. Just recognize we like being here or we wouldn’t be here.

        • Liking being here and reading the top do not go hand in hand sir.

          • Matt_Indeed

            I know that. I guess I mixed the last 2 issues together.

    • Professor Chaos

      Same. It’s also a good place to see what new things are out there without me looking it up.

  • Matt_Indeed

    TatR….eh? EH?!

    • TatR!

      Hello!

      • Matt_Indeed

        I see I was right!

        • TatR!

          when you said “You know, maybe TatR is right”?

          • Matt_Indeed

            No, when you said I was right!

          • TatR!

            I see. Yes no, you were! I thought the album was good, then i watched the Westermarck video and it was like yeah no this is awesome. I watched like six videos of theirs? They’ve made a lot of videos off that one cd

          • Matt_Indeed

            Yeah, I think someone they know must have a nice camera or something.

  • Reasonable Opinion Ghost

    Watching The Devil’s Advocate. This movie is all over the place.

  • Professor Chaos

    I’m missing screen junkies. I need movie fights and honest trailers back.

  • Matt_Indeed

    I’m not at work yet because the wife has a job interview this morning and I gotta watch the kid.

  • Hopefully Peyton has cancelled plans for today to be Ferrari Appreciation Day. I do not believe I would appreciate that, to be honest…

  • Professor Chaos

    Martin freeman is best known for what: office, hobbit, Sherlock or Fargo?

  • Reasonable Opinion Ghost

    So Al Pacino is literally Satan?

    • In the movie? Yes. In real life? Inconclusive

      • Professor Chaos

        I think in real life, he is The Godfather

      • Reasonable Opinion Ghost

        Why would Satan want to be a high powered attorney?

  • Professor Chaos

    Will be fun today at work: earthquake drill, meet the high schools fair and parent conferences night

    • ProjectBlue

      Conferences here too. Sooo boring for a specials teacher

  • TatR!

    Someone in the office is watching something on their PC without headphones the fucking gall

  • Reasonable Opinion Ghost

    Hahaha Satan totally embarrassing Keanu here with how he plowed his wife.

  • Professor Chaos

    just me or does miles teller have a very punchable face?

  • RudoWakening

    I usually check out the trailers, and Tuesday is probably my favourite thread day. New books are always important for me, with movies being a point of interest as well.

    • Professor Chaos

      Agreed. I like reading about the new dvds coming out

  • Reasonable Opinion Ghost

    Satan is such a wisecrack here i luv it maggle

  • Dwayne

    Ferrari’s moody again? I care, big guy. Especially when Marvel stuff is being discussed. I know you’re a DC man though. Your boys won last night. That’s something to feel good about.

  • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

    So whenever Ferrari gets upset, should we say he was “Fury-arrious”?

  • Devin Harris

    Still no Madea trailer? So, the mrs. comes up to me last night with her phone and says, “watch this”. It was the Madea trailer….again. She laughed so hard and said she can’t wait for us to see it. *sigh*

    • Dwayne

      My wife doesn’t even ask me to go to movies anymore. She goes with her sister. The trick was to fall asleep every time she took me to stuff I didn’t care about

      • Devin Harris

        I actually did sleep through the last Madea movie. It doesn’t stop her. Although, she did go see Girls Trip with her friends and then had me go see it again with her anyway. *shrug*

        • Dwayne

          Maybe because I snore in the theater.

  • THE DUCK

    I didn’t watch the trailer, mostly because I’m at work. Black Panther seems great, but I feel like we’re three movies away from total oversaturation. It reminds me of comics in the 90s where you just waited until the next crossover.

    • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

      Just wait until Infinity War!

    • Dwayne

      I don’t think so though. It’s been years of people saying the same thing. There is a market for this stuff obviously. Super heroes won’t go out of style

      • Professor Chaos

        Only way it goes out of style is if it stops being good.
        3 out of top 4 movies so far this year are super hero movies and all 3 were good to great

    • DAJackson7

      Surely they will just kill most of them off after Infinity War

      • Professor Chaos

        Or during infinity wars

  • WEEEEEEEEEELLLLCOOOOME To………….FERRARI APPRECIATION FESTIVAL OF FRIENDSHIP!!!!!

    https://i.makeagif.com/media/2-14-2017/JHNze0.gif

  • Devin Harris

    For the record I didn’t care for what was going on yesterday either. I’m black so of course my opinion doesn’t matter. I guess I’d have to do the equivalent of kneeling for the anthem for you people to care what I think

    • Professor Chaos

      No. We would just call you unpatriotic and how you hate America if you kneel for the anthem

    • TatR!

      I didn’t like it because it was talking about stupid wrestling opinions and 1000% I don’t care

    • I care what you think though I wasn’t hear for any of that yesterday

    • Matt_Indeed

      Okay.

    • TatR!

      I can pass the message on to our white viewers if you’d like

      • Devin Harris

        It would be much appreciated

        • TatR!

          I’m on it, I will raise awareness

    • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

      Don’t worry. I’m Mexican and people barely say hi to me!

  • Reasonable Opinion Ghost

    Our heavenly angel Keanu Reeves

  • Dwayne

    Took off today and tommorow. Anniversary today so we’ll probably do lunch or dinner. Tommorow we go to Fright Fest at Six Flags. Maybe hang out in Philly Saturday.

  • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

    I know the one thing that could bring everyone together
    .

    • Devin Harris

      I so wanted this to be Ricky Martin

  • Reasonable Opinion Ghost

    Keanu Reeves The Defence Attorney With Honour

    • THE DUCK

      That movie is the peak of Awesome Overacting Pacino.

      • DAJackson7

        And had some fantastic titties in it

  • Reasonable Opinion Ghost

    PLOT TWIST!

  • TatR!

    guys remember to use the #IListenToDevin hashtag today for all your comments

  • Reasonable Opinion Ghost

    Well that was certainly a movie I watched with my own 2 eyes.

  • Did Ferrari really leave? I didn’t have anything planned for today….well except one gift

    • TatR!

      i think the gift he wants is you leaving sorry

  • Reasonable Opinion Ghost

    “Blade Runner 2049 poor box office performance blamed on Millenials ”

    Or….maybe it just had a weak-ass script

    • Professor Chaos

      Or the fact it came out 35 years after the original

    • TatR!

      Generation That Hasn’t Listened To New Music Since 1997 Angry At Young People Not Respecting Their Era

      • THE DUCK

        Generation X has been hilarious as old people.

        • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

          It was also a decent comic book

          • THE DUCK

            Loads of fond memories.

          • Rowlf

            And that band Billy Idol was in before he became a solo artist.

        • Professor Chaos

          We’re not old. We’re hip and happening

    • THE DUCK

      “How dare these people younger than me not remember my adolescence fondly!”

      • TatR!

        do they even princess pride bro

    • I’ve never seen the original. I don’t even know about it. Is it the same thing as Total Recall?

      • TatR!

        it’s like total recall but with all the excitement replaced with rain

  • With so much drama at the bee-oh-gee
    It’s still good being me, your pal Mister_E

  • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez


    .
    This about sums up every generation

  • Mikey

    Millennials are the most over generation. We’re already pushing for our nostalgia to become popular. Look at all the Nicktoons getting brought back and the TGIF shows being brought back.

    Maybe Late Gen X/Early Millennials is the best way to put that.

    • Professor Chaos

      Can’t wait for saved by the bell and step by step remakes

      • DAJackson7

        Hmmm, what would they do with Lisa though….she’s not well. And i guess they would write off Screech since he has pissed them all off.

    • THE DUCK

      Oh we are going to be the worst. Hopefully, we’ll realize that we’re not cool anymore better.

      • Mikey

        As long as the nostalgia gets done now. .

  • Professor Chaos

    I never heard of hummels before last nights South Park episode

  • Matt_Indeed

    Paw Patrol this early should be a crime.

    • DAJackson7

      I have so many questions about that show after watching it with my nephew. It seriously suspends disbelief worse than the Canadian Destroyer

      • Matt_Indeed

        It’s a cartoon.

        • DAJackson7

          Yeah but that kid has NO parents, tons of money, but an inability to do anything for himself

          • Matt_Indeed

            Yes

          • I’ve been over exactly these points with my son.

            Who funds this equipment? The tax base of Adventure Bay doesn’t seem to be that big.

          • DAJackson7

            And they freaking hate all over the local government on there too, i swear the writers are MAGA

  • I can’t wait until the current generation is waxing nostalgic for Candy Crush, and paying big bucks to access the snapchat filters of their youth!

    • I’ve done pretty well at candy crush the past few days

    • THE DUCK

      It’s crazy that Millenials are already done. Kids are the next group.

    • Professor Chaos

      Isn’t there a candy crush tv show?

  • Mikey

    When do Millennials end?

    • DAJackson7

      When the next generation comes along…You are a millennial if you never bought VHS or a cassette tape. The next gen will never have bought a CD or DVD/Blu Ray

      • Mikey

        I guess I meant what year?

        • DAJackson7

          Eghhhh 2003?

    • THE DUCK

      2000 would seem logical.

    • ProjectBlue

      Only through war and fire and brimstone

  • And I think that we all remember where we were when that guy on YouTube who ate weird shit died.

    By ourselves, consuming media just for the sake of it.

  • Chasing Ferrari off is the opposite of my intent for today.

  • Reasonable Opinion Ghost

    https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DMdwyhtUQAApv1o?format=jpg&name=small

    Holy fuck there was an honest to god vanilla ice movie?

    • THE DUCK

      Oh it’s goddamn amazeballs.

    • hell ya there was
      “drop that zero and get with a hero!”

    • Professor Chaos

      and it was awesome

    • DAJackson7

      Someone needs to review that…like right now.

    • Yes. Before he was a punchline he was a pretty big star for a couple of minutes.

    • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

      Me and my wife tried watching that movie. We couldn’t last 15 minutes

  • TatR!

    holy shit headphones were invented for a fucking reason

    • Professor Chaos

      to annoy teachers at schools?

    • ProjectBlue

      Strangulation. Bluetooth’s really crimping my style

  • Dwayne

    Time for Maury. I was watching stuff like this all day when I was home for a week with chicken pox this summer.

  • Professor Chaos

    I really hate the new airpods. With the hoodies on, you cant even notice them so you tell the kid to take them off. Bam they were listening to music the whole time

    • Dwayne

      Do you teach at a bad school?

      • Professor Chaos

        its good school in a good neighborhood. 2 miles in other directions though, they are really bad

    • ProjectBlue

      If they get small enough I’m totally teaching with one in. …sadly though, as long as they’re also not playing them obnoxiously loud enough so others hear, eh, those kids probably wouldn’t be listening anyway

      • ProjectBlue

        …though, I’d basically do it like copyright enforcement, token noticing so it doesn’t become a plague but deep down not really caring….At this point in my career, I’m not inspiring Oh Captain, My Captain.

  • ProjectBlue

    So the building I have to go back to tonight I have no classroom, a lone comp on a dark and musty stage. No one bothers with me on conference days anyway. I’d rather get work done in that hell I guess but figure I have to set up shop front and center and be pestered instead. Bla

  • Professor Chaos

    Another thing that annoys me with hoodies: its 85 degrees out, you dont need to wear a hoodie in the classroom.

    “Its too hot in here.”
    “so take off your hoodie.”
    “can you please just turn on the a/c?”
    “take off your hoodie and you would be fine.”

    • Dwayne

      That’s stupid. Only gangsters wear hoodies in the summer. They hide guns in there.

  • Facts

    So tired this morning. I slept on the couch last night because Mrs Facts was beyond cranky and couldn’t fall asleep. So I gave her the whole bed to herself.

    • DAJackson7

      That’s why we have two couches in our house. One for sitting, one for sleeping

    • Seems like that worked out nicely for you.

  • Professor Chaos

    Some kids wear the hoodies like kenny from south park. Sometimes you can see their eyes and nose

  • Dwayne

    My daughter takes the yellow school bus to her school that’s not in our neighborhood. They are one of those different public schools where they don’t get homework and shit like that. They learn through going outside and playing.

    • I like that.

    • ProjectBlue

      That’s the sad part about most public schools. The goofier stuff where the kids could learn to play together and socialize is gone. Kindergarten these days is like 2nd grade when I was a kid. Expectations wise and “play time” wise.

      ….I had half day kindergarten with nap times built in and turned out halfway functional at least. Now they’re full day, bell to bell with maybe 15 minutes of recess built in if they line up fast enough and no one’s having a tantrum

  • I’m looking for a moment of honesty………..do I come off annoying?

    • ProjectBlue

      Only when bashing Eli

    • Mikey

      I don’t think so.

    • Facts

      No you are fine.

    • TatR!

      I think you’re swell.

      • TatR!

        now say that I am also swell

    • ProjectBlue

      …and honestlier I still get confused at times on things I think are being taken as dry humor sarcasm then get apocalyptic-ish pretty quick, so try to duck down at those times.

      • yes i get very caught off guard by these things as well.. as you may remember from trailergate

      • Professor Chaos

        same

    • THE DUCK

      I like your posts.

  • I thought with all the stuff that has happened it was worth asking … I think I’m grand but wanted to make sure I came off that way and if (as Ferrari has said) I am the top poster here I’m not constantly pissing everyone off… I just like to have fun and make with the hee hee

    • TatR!

      we’ve all pissed Ferrari off!

      • DAJackson7

        I liked making fun of that kid yesterday…he is such a tool

      • Matt_Indeed

        It’s not that difficult.

    • Facts

      I always enjoy your posting to be honest. You don’t annoy me like others.

    • It is very rare that anyone on either blog has actively annoyed me.

    • “Hurricane Jose” Gomez

      I tried bringing this site together through the power of a flying pop tart-cat farting out rainbows!

  • Thanks everyone for your kind words I honestly am not fishing for compliments (not saying I’ve never done that ) just wanted to get a read on the room.

    • ProjectBlue

      Nationwide insurance does suck though

      • DAJackson7

        And papa Johns really isn’t better pizza

        • Professor Chaos

          and chicken parm is horrible

    • TatR!

      that wonder womanning bit was terrible though, we all want you to know that, like top-tier all time worst ever thing on a blog

      • Facts

        Yes I wish to never see that avatar again.

        • I suggest you not show up the monday before justice league comes out

          • Facts

            ……………………………

          • I have a week of avatars planned…it’s only one day

      • Professor Chaos

        i vote for real life marv avatar

  • I’ve been looking forward to the Black Panther flick for a long time.

    • ProjectBlue

      I was hoping for Cap and Bucky but for long term franchise strength is was good they left them out it seems

      • Bucky’s kind of a whiney cunt.

        • DAJackson7

          I agree with this. He needs to get over his brain washing and get on with his life. He was so cool in Winter Soldier, but now he’s just a bitch

    • Facts

      Glad you support their cause.

    • Me too. I’ve always liked the character.

      • I’ve never read the comic but I dug his character in animated films.

      • DAJackson7

        I never knew about the character till the last movie when he showed up, but he seems really cool.

        • Racist.

          • DAJackson7

            Eh, i also never heard of Ant-Man, Hawkeye, Black Widow or even Iron Man till the movies. I knew about Spider Man, Captain America and Hulk. I heard Thor was a character but that didn’t make sense since i knew he was a Norse God.

          • I just assume everything is racist to someone somewhere.

          • DAJackson7

            That’s racist

          • Totally.

    • Dwayne

      I always loved the character.

  • Diddly: Basic B****

    Guess I’m going to start reading the threads!

    • I read Monday if the banner catches my interest, like Seinfeld.

      I at least skim Tuesday to see if there’s any interesting books.

      I skip Wednesday because I don’t care about modern comics and never did care about DC comics.

      I usually skip Thursday because I don’t watch trailers that aren’t Marvel movies.

      Friday is hit or miss.

      • RudoWakening

        Friday is a good one for me due to being a giant music nerd and I pretty much always check out the Song of the Week

    • Facts

      I read them, I just don’t comment for some reason.

  • IF you are out there somewhere Ferrari I too enjoy the daily thread posts. I will admit I have not always read every one and will make a better effort to do so and then also comment on the post thus showing my appreciation of your efforts

    • DAJackson7

      I did always like Trailer Thursday 🙁

      • TatR!

        brutal burn on peyton!

        • this does seem like my chance to bring trailers back to The Daily Hollywood Headline Roundup!

  • Reasonable Opinion Ghost

    Why do programmers always mix up Halloween and Christmas?

    Because Oct 31 = Dec 25

    • Reasonable Opinion Ghost

  • Rick “The Hot Take King” Ross

    What’s good in the hood?

    • It’s Diwali!

      That means samosas at work!

      • Rick “The Hot Take King” Ross

        Happy Diwali!

      • TatR!

        YES. Nothing better than samosas

  • I would comment on Ferrari’s other articles but I have only watched both Legends eps so far… no Supergirl,flash or arrow yet

    • Facts

      I don’t watch any of the DC TV shows so I can’t comment on them. Now once The Punisher drops on Netflix I will be all over that.

      • is there word when that’s happening?

        • Facts

          They pushed it back because of what happened in Vegas.

          • Yeah I just wonder how long. Word was at the NY comic con they were going to pull “oh and by the way…….its up now ::drops mic::

          • Facts

            Too bad we have to wait longer.

  • Dave really likes driving simulator games

    • DAJackson7

      The new Gran Turismo is freaking awful. It looks good and drives good, but everything else about it sucks

      • I’ve never played one of those. Had mild interest but then figured I needed to get the whole steering wheel and what not and ended up on “meh”

    • He really enjoys simulating daily chores that no one enjoys, like pumping gas.

  • I feel very fat today

    • Diddly: Basic B****

      Woohoo, fat club!

      • TatR!

        first rule of fat club, you always talk about how fat you’re feeling

  • Devin Harris

    I read an interesting story on si about the 1987 NFL strike. The Giants didn’t see the strike coming so unlike other teams they didn’t have scabs ready to go. So, they start grabbing people from wherever.

    Then LT crosses the line and plays in the last game before the real players come back. He completely destroyed everyone in the game.

    They held him on every play but the refs told LT they couldn’t call it every time so he just had to deal with it. At the end of the game LT got so pissed that he grabbed a guy by the throat and threatened to kill him

  • Diddly: Basic B****

    Just got an email from a job app and the guy wants to set up a phone interview with me as he’s “in his car” this afternoon. That… seems fishy

      Woooooooooo!

    • You and Jesus are black? What a weird thing to say…

      • Matt_Indeed

        Back. But possibly black. I haven’t done a genealogy thing.

        • Huh. Well ok then. I may need new glasses.

    • He’ll never be able to play the piano again.

  • My wife is attending another cross stitching get together at the local brewery tonight.

    I will have to put both kids to bed.

    Boo.

    • My wife has her knitting group tonight. It meets after the kid goes to sleep

    • No one said you had to reproduce. You knew the job was dangerous when you took it.

    • Also, I’m highly amused by the thought of drunken cross stitching.

  • I get annoyed with my animals. I can’t imagine having to raise another human.

  • Reasonable Opinion Ghost

    Guys….Cuphead is awesome.

  • My wife suggested yesterday that I just disable Disqus on here, and use the site the way it was originally intended – to give me a place to just write.

    It’s under consideration. But I know how much people enjoy it here. So, because it’s stopped being fun for me, I think I’m just going to take the Scott route and just back away from the regular discussion and just focus on other things. It’ll be an adjustment, and I assume I’ll be around for a bit as I get used to the new status quo.

    I’ll still be monitoring from time to time, and I still expect a level of decorum. If you think that’s an unreasonable expectation, you are free to go somewhere else.

    If anyone has anything they want to say to me, there’s an email address on the About page.

    • Matt_Indeed

      I’m unsure why this is so stressful for you, but if you feel you have to do that, that’s up to you. We’re all basically shooting the shit.

      Nothing that’s been done here can’t be taken back in some way.

      Also, I like talking to you. You’re a good guy.

    • You are obviously are free to do whatever it’s your site and life and all and if you no longer like talking to us then you shouldn’t do it (I don’t mean that as in a how dare you not like talking to us way it sounds). I agree with everything Matt said and enjoy talking to you too.

    • Marv

      I’m with your wife. If doing this is causing you any stress whatsoever you should stop. Most will filter back to the BoD and others of us will just move on with our lives. It’s fine.

    • Facts

      It’s your site do what you need to do. Sorry this has caused you stress.

    • THE DUCK

      I vote disable.

      If this is an actual creative outlet that’s important to you, then use it as such.

      It’s your site, and what you want superseded our need for a playground.

    • chicagodem79

      I enjoy the generally more adult atmosphere here compared to the BoD, but like others have chimed in, if it’s causing you undue stress, then get rid of it.

    • Mikey

      I’d vote disable. If you use this site for your personal happiness, they everyone can go back to the other place. Most of us are friends on other forms of Social Media so I think everyone should be okay with it.

    • RudoWakening

      I’m glad that for now you’re taking the Scott route rather than disabling Disqus. I really enjoy shooting the shit here with you dudes and it would suck (at least for me) if Disqus goes away. Take care of yourself and stay happy, dude.

      • I agree.. my concern is not being able to talk to the people who won’t go back over there

        • but as I said below it’s not my site so..

        • RudoWakening

          You can always find me on Instagram or the Facebooks

          **bats eyes**

    • chicagodem79

      If I were to make a suggestion, if you keep Disqus, you should probably dedicate an open thread for the playground stuff, while your specific posts/blogs/articles etc should be separate. That way, if you don’t want to be even involved or see the stuff in open threads, you can just skip it.

    • “No Way Jose” Gomez

      Up to you, man. Maybe going incognito might be best, as you could still keep tabs on this place without having to be here every day. Either way, we’ll support you in whatever you decide to do

    • I don’t really understand the stress here.. But it’s your site, and if this isn’t what you want it to be then I think that you should disable.

      This is never going to be an entirely on topic discussion of your posts. The atmosphere here may in fact drive off random visitors as we’ve all known each other for years and that can be intimidating to break into.

      I like the site, I like you guys, but I definitely don’t think that you should host this if it’s causing you legitimate grief.

    • For the sake of clarification. it wasn’t an either or situation. I’m just gonna go do my own thing, focus more on writing and providing content, not comments. I won’t kill off the open threads, that was never really on the table as an option. I’m just gonna participate in them less.

      • chicagodem79

        Sounds like a stress reducing plan man, very good!

      What the hell happened??

  • Matt_Indeed

    This is kind of bumming me out, to be honest.

    I thought we were having fun and just pulling each other’s leg. I’ve talked to most of you in one way or another for about 5 years now, and I guess I didn’t realize it was having a bad affect on Ferrari.

    Kind of makes me want to just stop coming.

    • “No Way Jose” Gomez

      I would imagine running a website in itself is pretty stressful, even if nothing bad has ever happened

      • Matt_Indeed

        I’ve ran websites before. I was never stressed, but I’m not the same cat, so maybe it’s different for different people.

    • Facts

      Yeah I thought I finally found a place that did not annoy the ever loving hell out of me like some other places I was apart of. But I guess if he doesn’t want disqus, he doesn’t want it.

      Sometimes we see what we want to see and hear what we want to hear. Ferrari’s been speaking loud and clear but most folks weren’t listening and tried to turn this place into something THEY wanted rather than what it was intended to be. Yesterday, the dam broke.

      • Matt_Indeed

        I guess so.

    • Yeah, I’m just not sure where the problem is, and I guess that means that I am part of the problem. I would say that our level of decorum here is actually pretty high compared to the internet at large. I like it as an outlet to be a bit silly and bullshit, but I also think it’s cool that that turns around very quickly into genuine well wishes and concern if someone wants to speak seriously.

      • Matt_Indeed

        Yeah, I took it kind of like 25 dudes in their 30’s and 40’s just talking about bullshit, and then being there with encouraging words when terrible shit happens in their lives.

        Basically what would happen if we were all in a room together.

      • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

        I think it just that we can’t help ourselves when it comes to mob mentality. “Hey, look at this nerd, let’s get him!”

        • THE DUCK

          I did. Mostly because I didn’t want to add any more drama. There’s been really 0 at the BoD since the split.

          • Matt_Indeed

            Good. I’m glad everyone is happy over there. Maybe you should go back over there if it’s so happy.

          • Marv

            Just PK spamming for three weeks, and Friendship freaking out, and the biweekly panic when grown men don’t get what they want from their cartoon show. There’s drama there every day, it’s just that we’re all used to the sadness of it all.

            I mean you’re right there hasn’t been much personal drama over there, probably because very few people over there have a personal life.

          • Matt_Indeed

            Exactly. I would say we’re actually closer here. Everybody over there just says random wrestling comments.

          • THE DUCK

            I personally, have a great filter for nonsense. I have an incredible ability to not give a shit lol. But with that being said, I do like wrestling, and like to talk about it sometimes, but there are a lot of times where I just dont’ care to talk about Indie Wrestling X or Japanese Wrestling Y. That’s why this place is great.

          • Facts

            I agree, I still enjoy watching wrestling and don’t want to talk about it ALL DAMN DAY.

          • That’s kind of where I’m at. I still watch a bit of wrestling so I still post there for that. But it’s a bit too much of just random one off comments about wrestling I don’t care about to really stick around long most of the time.

            That, and Bonzai posting “Have you seen actress x in this? TITTY TATTY BOOBY BATTY!”, is 90% of the posts.

          • Facts

            I think Bonzai is mildly autistic.

            He really, really, really, REALLY wants us to know how heterosexual he is.

          • Bonzai was the only person who I’ve had to block for a while.

          • chicagodem79

            Even him, that’s who he is, you can either let it bother you, or choose to ignore it. I choose the latter, partly because I have that don’t give a shit gene real strong lol.

    • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

      I told ya.

      • it’s a joke.. I didn’t actually do the appreciation day other than the first post. I’d be more than happy to though as I do appreciate Ferrari

        • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

          I just thought it wasn’t the right time for the gag.

    • TatR!

      Ferrari never seemed very impressed with the way a lot of us bantered back on the BoD, even outside of the kind of thing with Bayless yesterday. Incredibly grateful I am for him opening his site up for us to hang out, but I’m not at all surprised that he got fed up with us because I always thought he was fed up with a lot of peoples sense of humour here, including me, to begin with. Maybe this just wasn’t going to fit, as much as I want it to.

    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — A Pittsburgh Public School teacher was seriously injured after officials say she was followed in her car and assaulted after school, allegedly in a dispute over a child’s cellphone.
    http://pittsburgh.cbslocal.com/2017/10/18/teacher-assault-north-side-school/

    • ProjectBlue

      The district has a “no cell phone” policy. The teacher, identified as 46-year-old Janice Watkins, confiscated a phone from a fourth grade girl, who then allegedly bit her. Sources say the student’s parents came to school, with the mother allegedly telling the teacher she was “going to get even.”

      • ProjectBlue

        “She said, ‘I put my window down and the woman threw a brick through my window,’ and hit her in her face,” said Betty Davis, Watkins’ mother. “And that’s when she said, ‘I told you I would get you,’ and [Watkins] said, ‘I didn’t realize it was two other people,’ but she said she felt something hit her in the back and it was two men.”

        • ProjectBlue

          ““My heart goes out to the child, because what has that mother taught that child? Whatever it is, you solve it with violence,” said Davis.”

          ….keep poking the crazy lady. Next time they won’t use bricks

    At an event hosted by the George W. Bush Institute, the 43rd U.S. president rattled off a thinly veiled litany of complaints about the current commander-in-chief, focusing on both his tone and his isolationist policy choices.
    ‘Our young people need positive role models,’ he said. ‘Bullying and prejudice in our public life sets a national tone, provides permission for cruelty and bigotry, and compromises the moral education of children.’

    • Reasonable Opinion Ghost

    Shrimp alfredo, carrots, broccoli, mushrooms, peas, cheese, hot sauce.

    • None of these things are lettuce.

      • Matt_Indeed

        I know! I’m terrible!

        • I often buy heads of romaine lettuce at Costco because it’s cheap. But, a package includes 6 heads. I eat two for lunch, so I needed to bring more for today and tomorrow. This morning, I opened a package at home and put 4 heads of lettuce into a plastic storage bag and set it down to do whatever else was necessary before I left.

          I was 15 or 20 minutes into my 50 minute commute before I realized I left my lunch for the next two days at home. I’m sure one of the cats will start to eat the plastic (I don’t know why, but the fucker does. I wish he’d fucking die) and then the dog will probably eat the lettuce, or at least most of it.

          Fuck.

          • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

            One of my cats gnaws on plastic shopping bags. Has for years. Our theory is that she was abandoned as a kitten and survived by eating garbage and that said garbage included plastic bags and so it’s a source of comfort for her.

            Depressing thought, but we’ve made up for all that by spoiling her rotten for over a decade.

  • Random thought. Cosby denied the allegations. Has Weinstein? I don’t recall seeing a denial.

    • Yes.

      • Well I think he made some vague admittance of inappropriate behaviour and rehab or whatever, but he’s denied the rape allegations.

        • chicagodem79

          Classic cop to the “less serious” stuff and deny the most serious.

      • It kinda bugs me that everyone assumes the allegations are true. I understand that where there’s smoke, there’s probably fire, but there is such a thing as due process. Anyone can make accusations.

        also, Hugh Hefner did all kinds of nasty shit, yet he’s celebrated after he dies. Lame.

        • Devin Harris

          That’s why I always try to side step anything related to this kind of stuff. The public’s definition of what’s acceptable and not seems to be less than concrete.

        • chicagodem79

          I guess the major distinction is whether it was wanted/consensual. I could definitely buy women wanting to do stuff with the Hef (whether it was because they truly thought he was sexy, or if it was an in to the Playboy world).

          • True

          • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

            Yeah, the issue isn’t Weinstein having sex with lots of women but rather forcing the issue by using his power and outright assaulting them. By all accounts, the Playboy women wanted to be there.

          • Devin Harris

            The Playboy women wanted to be there because most probably saw it as a gateway to better things. It’s more implied than stated. Whereas Weinstein states it instead of implies it. For me, I don’t know if there is much of a difference.

          • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

            The difference is that Weinstein forced women into situations they wanted no part of by threatening their livelihoods. I don’t think Hef had to threaten anyone, although I’m sure he took advantage of situations as well.

          • Devin Harris

            Hef ran his con smoother than Weinstein did. They both played the same game. You have to give to get.

        • TatR!

          High profile actresses have more of a voice than random models who dress as bunnies. Having said that, most of the people I’ve seen most angry about Weinstein didn’t have much nice to say about Hugh Hefner either, so I don’t see too much hypocrisy in reaction

      I’m surprised it doesn’t happen more often. Most teachers are shocccccckingly not tech savvy

    • DAJackson7

      We just got done send them company wide to see what the click rate would be….it was 30 fucking percent. Guess i’ll be teaching an email safety class soon.

      • Blackjack Jowalsen

        Our last phishing e-mail was so ludicrously suspicious, I just laughed it off and deleted it. The next week at a meeting, people were like “oh it was so sophisticated. There was not way to tell that it was suspicious.” Lord help us.

        • DAJackson7

          I had people call the helpdesk to ask about it AFTER they had clicked on it. Umm you still fail

  • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

    Wavy Boy is still pretty upset.

    • Marv

      Lol nah he super doesn’t care just ask him, he’ll let you know across 25 posts

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        That’s how you let the people know you don’t care. You drill it into their skulls. If anything he may be caring too much about not caring.

      • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

        Between that and Dougie denying being Dougie, I was cheered up immensely. Schadenfreude, I guess.

  • RudoWakening

    A bee was flying near me at lunch and I made up a poem about him:

    Hello, Bee. Buzz away from me
    Go puke up your guts and make tasty honey
    Fertilize a seed, fertilize a tree
    Just don’t put your stingy prick in me

    • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

      *wipes away a tear*

    • Rowlf

      Not bad, I’ll give it a Bee-Plus.

      • RudoWakening

        I’m going to boo you, but you still get an upvote

    • Most nucular plants have a Head Bee Guy to look after the bees.

      • RudoWakening

        I’m definitely Head Bee Guy

    • Matt_Indeed

      Congrats. This was the CotD.

  • Marv

    Hi Wavy! Good to see you totes not caring still lol

    • Matt_Indeed

      *waives at Wavy*

  • chicagodem79

    I think somebody is eating an onions sandwich in the cubicle bank next to me….ugh.

    • Marv

      A what?!

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        An onion sandwich

      • chicagodem79

        I don’t know what the hell else is in this person’s lunch, but all I smell is onions.

        • Mr. Money On The Table

          It could be the person themselves.

        • Marv

          I’m picturing two pieces of bread and just a ton of onions. I don’t think my kid would even eat that and he’ll eat soap.

          • TatR!

            throw on a bit of cheese you’ve got yourself a party

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            Yeah…that will work in a desperate pinch.

          • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

            A party of one? Because of the smell and gas?

          • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

            You’re gonna hurt TatR’s feelings.

    • TatR!

      nice

  • Matt_Indeed

    So hey, Charly Bliss.

    • Matt_Indeed

      Guppy is only $15 on Vinyl at Amazon too. Tempting.

    • TatR!

      Did you like Sleigh Bells, Matt? You’d probably really like a lot of their stuff. Check out this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YiwcUdX7XMw

      • Matt_Indeed

        Haven’t seen it. Will check it out when I get home though!

  • Facts

    I am just looking up books to read. This is all very weird.

    • Marv

      How fast do you fucking read? I swear to god you’re getitng a new book every day.

      • Facts

        I read a multitude of books at the same time. I should not do this.

        • Marv

          Yeah that’s really hard for me. I used to be better at it but my attention span is less than zero these days.

          • Facts

            I will also start to read one and go I don’t want to read this right now and end up looking for something else.

          • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

            I went from reading all the time and carrying a book everywhere to barely reading at all unless I’m online. I can feel myself getting dumber.

        • Blackjack Jowalsen

          Seneca would agree “And the same thing must hold true of men who seek intimate acquaintance with no single author, but visit them all in a hasty and hurried manner. 3. Food does no good and is not assimilated into the body if it leaves the stomach as soon as it is eaten; nothing hinders a cure so much as frequent change of medicine… There is nothing so efficacious that it can be helpful while it is being shifted about. And in reading of many books is distraction.”

          You’ll never be a stoic philosopher at this rate.

    • Matt_Indeed

      “Book readin’ is weird!”

    • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

      I blame Mobsaf.

      • Matt_Indeed

        It’s been a bad week since Mobsaf.

        • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

          It really has.

        • Rowlf

          At least it’s Fribsaf tomorrow.

          • Matt_Indeed

            True enough

        • TatR!

          always gonna be a crash after a high like that

          • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

            You loved that so much, LOL.

          • TatR!

            And I was told to calm it down! If only I hadn’t, if only I’d kept the spirit alive everything could have been different idk 🙁

          • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

            I was one of those, it just felt Meekin-y.

            Had I known, yeah, I’d have kept my mouth shut.

  • Matt_Indeed
    • Marv

      The whole Trump crew hates his guts now, I guess because Donald said previous presidents aren’t as good at comforting soldiers as he is.

      • Matt_Indeed

        If the whole crew hates him, they should be able to sabotage him quite easily. We’ll see how much they hate him soon then.

        • Marv

          No I mean the Trump guys hate Bush now, he was never a real conservative and his presidency sucked and he was the worst and blah blah blah it’s all the shit liberals were saying in 2003 it’s hilarious

          • Matt_Indeed

            Oh. That’s absurd. Bush just isn’t a nationalist. He was certainly a conservative.

          • Marv

            There is now Team Trump and Team GOP and the two shall never mix. It’s great, he’s ripping that party to shreds.

          • Matt_Indeed

            It doesn’t matter though. Whoever the guy with the (R) is beside his name gets 50% of the vote.

    • ProjectBlue

      it’s better late than never but if he actually played up as a uniter not a divider in office things would be magnitudes less shitty now

    • Devin Harris

      Wtf? Is Bush woke?

      • Matt_Indeed

        To a point it would seem.

        • Devin Harris

          He actually said the words white supremacy. That’s a victory in and of itself

  • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

    Must be Dirty Laundry Day.

    So many filthy drawers being waved around.

  • Facts

    Time for lunch. Gonna watch Ken Burns’ The War.

  • Marv

    LOL Wavy is still going, it’s been an hour now.

    • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

      He’s all about the LOVE, man. You’re bringing him down!

      • Marv

        Obviously lol

        • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

          “I love it here especially since I’m not allowed at the other place!”

    • Matt_Indeed

      He’s quite in love with you. It’s adorable.

      • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

        I’d forgotten Marv banned him, honestly.

        • Marv

          Think about that. How shitty do your hot takes have to be when you get banned before guy whose name is literally The Hot Take King hahah

          • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

            I seem to recall him predicting his banning before it happened, or was that someone else?

          • Marv

            Yep. Lots of posts like “I’m sure I’ll get banned for saying this but…”

            I figured I was doing him a favor.

          • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

            It’s like he wanted the ban so he could go back “home” as a martyr.

            Man, this shit runs deep, LOL.

          • Marv

            That’s exactly what it was. When he did post here all he ever did was go back to the BoD and bitch about how terrible it was here. Then he’d post again. And again. And again.

            I don’t mind being everyone’s dad and grounding them from the things that upset them.

          • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

            It’s all so crazy and yet it also makes perfect sense. I dunno, I never think that deeply about it, I just post shit. But for some I guess it’s like a game of Risk.

    • DAJackson7

      He irritates me more than PK ever did

  • chicagodem79

    It’s gonna be REAL weird whenever Trump leaves whether it’s (hopefully after 4 years, or more regrettably after 8 years), you know how sometimes all the past living Presidents get together for certain events and photo ops. Can you see President Dipshit ever doing that? Would they even invite him?

    • Marv

      He wouldn’t go. I guarantee you he won’t go to the next inauguration.

      • Matt_Indeed

        So no respect at all for any bit of the Presidency? Seems correct.

      • ProjectBlue

        (Immediately after)I was there. Whoever says I wasn’t: FakeNews!

        • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

          He’ll go, but he’ll have his own private areas with “TRUMP” emblazoned all over. No photo-ops with “losers” like Obama and Bush and Clinton.

    • Greg Phillips

      Unfortunately I think he’s winning again. Disgusting, but his most vocal supporters aren’t wavering at all.

      • Marv

        They’re doubling down even, I mean they turned on McCain and call him a loser lol

        • Greg Phillips

          What’s interesting is seeing how they’ll turn on W. A family member of mine bought W’s memoirs and has read the book multiple times, yet I feel strongly that he will now disavow him in favor of Trump.

          • Marv

            Oh yeah they hate GW now. It’s amazing. I don’t think they even know what their position on anything is anymore, it’s just “pro-Trump” no matter what that entails. It’s so weird.

  • Devin Harris

    Know what isn’t fun anymore? Inside the NBA. They all talk over each other and their political talk makes me sad

    • Marv

      And at the end of the day we all know the games are fixed as fuck anyway so why bother

      • Mikey

        It’s a nine month season for a known result to happen.

    • chicagodem79

      Eh, I disagree a little bit. I saw the clip of them talking about the Bulls’ ridiculous fight, and Kyrie’s ego the other night, that was pretty entertaining.

      • Devin Harris

        I need doses it’s ok but a lot of times they seem bored

    • Mikey

      They all are sick of the sport too.

      Ernie: “So, we haven’t talked about the Rockets yet”

      Charles and Kenny: “There’s a reason for that”

      Ernie: “Don’t think adding Chris Paul will change anything”

      Charles and Kenny: “Nope”

      • Devin Harris

        They all sound burned out on basketball and would rather just be goofy. They won’t even let Ernie narrate highlights

      • Greg Phillips

        I mean, they aren’t wrong.

    • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

      Like WWE, that show seems better digested via YouTube.

      • Devin Harris

        Kinda off topic but you say something interesting. It’s not necessarily our ADHD driving us to YouTube but more our desire to not sit through crap

        • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

          Pretty much. If there was a 15-minute WWE highlight show on YouTube somewhere I might be still following the product.

  • I think I’m going to hang back for awhile. I wasn’t around for the stuff yesterday but can’t help but think some of this is on me. My intentions over the months to try and make Ferrari and everyone laugh has had disastrous results. No harm was ment.

      I’m going to not change at all.

        • You know, you could’ve sent me a message privately…

          • I thought about it but didn’t want to bug you or make you feel you have to explain yourself to some dude you never met. I wasn’t trying to draw you back into this with my comment I was just telling everyone else that I felt I’d probably take the weekend off and why.

One are the existing customers that have always been there, and the second list is the new customers that came on after this company acquired 2 other companies. The total number is similar, however, after 2 hours, we have 177 surveys from the original customers, and only 6 from the new customers. Me thinks there’s an issue there….

        They remodeled my high school my sophomore and junior years and there were several teachers that demanded they put in chalkboards rather than the dry-erase they’d been planning on installing everywhere.

        Some of the older coots even got their stupid chalk shit they were so adamant about it.

        Of course they all retired within like five years anyway and all those chalk boards were replaced with dry erase.

        • Devin Harris

          My director was telling us the story of when he got rid of chalkboards. Those old biddies tried to have him fired.

          • Devin Harris

        And they tend to get REALLY dirty if they aren’t cleaned up right away. There are many in this office that need a serious deep cleaning.

        • Devin Harris

          That’s why we ask everyone not to write on them. It just doesn’t come out. The new markers are those space age things that write on the board using light reflections or whatever.

          • chicagodem79

            I’m curious, what is the brand of these new markers? I work in office products wholesaling, and I haven’t even heard of these.

          • Devin Harris

            They come with the projectors. Not sure if you can get them retail. The board we use is an Epson 1430wi

          • chicagodem79

            Ahh ok, I think they have one of these in the board room, but the regular conference rooms for us jobbers have the old school whiteboards.

      • DAJackson7

        Oh really? Shit i thought it was like a magical computer projection or something. Nice

        • Devin Harris

          Well, the boards are the same, but the markers are those optical illusion things now which is why we don’t use dry erase markers.

  • Matt_Indeed

    I don’t know who Fela Kuti is, but this shit is jazzy.

    • Matt_Indeed

      Apparently a jazz musician who’s been around forever. Makes sense.

      • Devin Harris

        Only Jazz musician I can name that’s under 70 is Kenny G. He’s probably in his 60s

        • Matt_Indeed

          Apparently Fela Kuti is an african musician, not just jazz.

          • Devin Harris

            I don’t think I know any African musicians. I should be more ashamed of that than I am

  • Devin Harris

    I’ve been helping the electronical guy setup his lab the past couple of weeks. He said I should go through his class. I’m thinking about it.

    • DAJackson7

      Always take extra classes, it’s worth it

  • Classrooms have whiteboards now?

    • Marv

      Oh jesus

    • Devin Harris

      What did they use before chalkboards?

      • Marv

        The Bible.

        • Devin Harris

          Wait…so they wrote math problems on the Bible?

          • Marv

            Who needs math when you have prayer?

  • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

    Watching a Mister Rogers doc.

    I wish I could go back and work in Early TV. So much room for growth and creativity because it was all brand new and no one knew anything so there were no real rules beyond decency standards.

    • Marv

      Which one? I watched an hour on him the other night. That guy is the motherfucking man.

      Check out his Lifetime Achievement Emmy speech where he doesn’t once mention himself and talks completely about other people and their happiness and how that’s what its all about to him.

      We lost a fucking man’s man when that guy died.

      • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

        Rick Sebak’s.

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        I remember Stern sent Stuttering John to some appearance he was making to ask him the usual brand of stupid ass questions and Mr. Rogers was unflappable.

        “Fred, would you buy a “Machine Gun Barney?”
        “Would you?
        “…”

      • chicagodem79

        It’s very sad how the narrative around him was that he was gay/he liked little children too much. It’s a shame today that caring for kids and being totally involved is looked at in such a cynical manner. I watched Mr. Rogers as a kid, and learned a lot from that show, I never thought the dude was creepy in any way.

        • Marv

          To me it’s an easy line between creep and genuinely nice person: Do they have kids of their own?

          Fred did. Thus he’s fucking awesome and just a nice dude.

          A guy that did all the same things Fred did but was single? Ehhhhhh….yeah that’s not a guy I’m letting my son near lol

          • chicagodem79

            LOL, that’s understandable too.

          • Marv

            It’s not a hard rule obviously, I know lots of dudes with no kids and they’re all great and treat my son great. His godfather is a single man that will never have children.

            But it’s definitely an alarm bell.

          • Dwayne

            I like kids more since I became a dad but I don’t loooove kids that much. So it’s a little odd to me for a grown man to love kids like that and not have any.

          • Comdukakis

            I don’t like any kids but my own

          • Dwayne

            Well, besides my own I have nieces and nephews that are cool.

      • “No Way Jose” Gomez

        I remember reading a Cracked article on him. There were no jokes or sense of irony. It was actually very touching

    Time for episode three of GOT

    • Marv

      I’m on episode S1E7 of a rewatch. God it’s so much better the second time around.

      • Comdukakis

        I’m comparing book to show as I go.

  • Comdukakis

    So my wife had the longhaired cat shaved like a lion. God help me if she posts pics on fb

    • Devin Harris

      She posts pubes on FB?

      • Comdukakis

        Cat. c-a-t…..cat

        • Devin Harris

          Right. We’ve established that. So, yay or nay?

          • Comdukakis

            Go away

  • Marv

    It’s weird that no one blames Conan for what happened to Conan.

    • Comdukakis

      I do. He’s a niche show

      • Marv

        It’s just weird to me that no one blames the whole thing on him demanding the Tonight Show in his contract. Of course the NBC brass didn’t like him after that.

        • Comdukakis

          I got shouted down on BOD for not backing Conan

          • Marv

            Of course you did. Conan was the underdog and the reality of the situation be damned, we always cheer the underdog.

        • Rick “The Hot Take King” Ross

          Is it unreasonable to demand NBC fill their end of the bargain?

          • Marv

            It’s unreasonable to make the big show part of your contract when you don’t have the ratings or talent for it.

          • Rick “The Hot Take King” Ross

            Then NBC should have let him walk instead of agreeing to it.

          • Marv

            Oh I agree, I’m not saying NBC is blameless. Just that Conan isn’t either. He screwed himself.

          • Rick “The Hot Take King” Ross

            How do you screw yourself when you’re looking out for your own interests? Conan has every right to ask for all he could when in negotiations.

          • Marv

            He forced NBC’s hand and then they slapped him with it when his ratings sucked. Which everyone knew were going to suck except Conan.

            It was dumb on NBC’s part but this idea that he got screwed is ridiculous. He didn’t bring the ratings.

          • Rick “The Hot Take King” Ross

            A deal is a deal. If you choose to break a contract, you’re the one doing the screwing.

          • Comdukakis

            They let anyone in here

          • Rick “The Hot Take King” Ross

            They sure do.

    • Mikey

      I forgot he was still around. I stopped watching his TBS show around 2012.

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        You ain’t missing much. I see clips every now and again. It’s just a slightly more successful Lopez Tonight.

      • Marv

        We goof on Fallon being forgotten post-Trump but Conan was forgotten post-Obama

        • Mikey

          It was really bad lol. He just seemed like he lost his fastball and it wasn’t coming back.

          • Marv

            I wonder what kinds of ratings he gets. I bet it’s like an Arsenio situation and if TBS just replayed Seinfeld in that slot they’d do better.

          • Mikey

            zap2it shows he’s getting 1/4th of the viewers as adult swim. An average of 0.33 million.

          • Marv

            Jeeeesus lol, yep Seinfeld would do better I bet

          • Comdukakis

            How long is his deal

          • Marv

            Probably a century, he was a HUGE deal for that one month when TBS signed him

          • Matt_Indeed

            Conan had great numbers when Leno was his lead-in. But he should have never gotten the Tonight Show because his show was off-the-wall. It’s the same reason Letterman shouldn’t have gotten it. I hate Leno’s Tonight Show, but it was exactly what 11:30 was….middle aged people laughing at softball jokes.

          • Marv

            So basically his ratings were good when people slept through his show lol

          • Matt_Indeed

            I watched his show religiously in my 20’s.
            Stewart from 11:00-11:30
            Letterman from 11:30-12:30.
            Conan from 12:30-1:30.

          • chicagodem79

            Which is exactly why Jimmy Fallon fits so well.

          • Matt_Indeed

            Yep.

        • Matt_Indeed

          I like Conan.

          • Marv

            He’s fine but this narrative where he was just an innocent soul that got eaten up by NBC is ridiculous. He forced their hand and they slapped him with it.

          • “I can’t believe NBC would betray me like this.”

            *keeps ALL of that NBC money*

          • Matt_Indeed

            Well, I mean, of course.

          • Matt_Indeed

            They shouldn’t have promised him the show then. Even if he’s the one who demanded it.

          • Rick “The Hot Take King” Ross

            Nobody forced anyone’s hand.

          • Marv

            …lol alright

      • Comdukakis

        He mishandles everything. Then again he’s in a den of snakes

        • Marv

          But even from the start, he kind of fucks up. I mean Robert is a pile of shit man, and Ned put him in the seat.

      I’ve never even used a smart board before, they’ve been too cheap to put them in the conference rooms here. How are they different?

      • The Silver Fox

        I think so.

        • Marv

          I don’t think anyone is the Night King. I think it’s just some evil dude.

  • chicagodem79

    I can’t remember the last time I watched any of the late night TV shows live actually on TV. I usually just catch up on selected clips from Colbert, Kimmel, and Seth, Daily Show, etc later on YouTube.

    • Rick “The Hot Take King” Ross

      Most people sleep at reasonable hours.

    • Marv

      What amuses me is that even the people that make those shows know that no one cares about the advertisement interviews because for the most part they don’t even bother putting them up the next day.

      • chicagodem79

        EXACTLY. I almost never watch the interviews, it’s usually the opening monologue and whatever ensuing comedy bit and occasionally the music performance if it’s from an artist I like.

        • Marv

          That seems to be everyone. LIke I watch Colbert every morning to get my news and opinions and they hardly ever upload the interviews unless the guest gets political. They know exactly who they’re aiming for.

          • I still maintain Colbert’s schtick on the Colbert Report wore out FAST.

          • Marv

            Yeah I never watched that, the bit was boring.

          • chicagodem79

            I don’t know if I totally agree with that. The funny thing about the Colbert Report was how many people, EVEN towards the end of the run of that show still weren’t in on the bit.

          • chicagodem79

            Like if you are a politician, especially in Washington, you should’ve known his bit. But he still did interviews in character with politicians who somehow were STILL oblivious to this.

          • Matt_Indeed

            I loved the Report. Almost as much as Stewart’s show. And to me, that’s near sacrilege, because I maintain that The Daily Show in its prime was top 10 of all-time.

          • It was one of those things to me where, if I wanted to see some blowhard spout jingoistic conservative nonsense buzzwords and talking points with no regard for facts or logic, I could just watch the actual O’Reilly Factor.

          • Matt_Indeed

            Yes, but Colbert was funny.

          • chicagodem79

            But he was spoofing that, that was the point of the character. That’s what made it extra funny when he would interview some of the more extreme conservative politicians and officials, Colbert could talk shit literally to their face, but they wouldn’t catch on because he would use their buzzwords and catchphrases surrounding them. It was hilarious.

          • I get it was a spoof, but I always thought O’Reilly actually going out and making an ass of himself every night was funnier than the satirical version.

          • chicagodem79

            That’s a fair point too, although O’Reilly makes me angrier than funny, but to each their own.

      He went off to cable at the worst time really, it was right when people stopped watching and just catching youtube clips.

          • Marv

            Oh, duh. Yeah I only watch the show I don’t know anything about him except that he didn’t bother writing books and now he’s mad because the show doesn’t follow the books that he can’t be bothered to write.

      WHAT??????

    • DAJackson7

      They are to buyst building new buildings to actually make anything work right. I’m convinced universities are truly pointless

  • Ok fine I’ll post.

    Conan only screwed Conan by wanting the tonight show so badly that he took a dumb deal AND not being more open to changing the show for a wider audience when he got the show. He should have took the deal Fox was putting together for him but he wanted the Tonight show. The deal was a bad idea because he was at his peak of popularity and instead stayed behind Jay and cooled for 5 years.

    I still DVR conan and check out some of the eps from time to time. I mostly just watch the opening bit and if a guest is someone I’m interested in.

    • Rick “The Hot Take King” Ross

      A deal is a deal. Your worth is the amount someone is willing to pay you. Nothing more, nothing less.

    • Marv

      Basically he wanted the glory of the main show without wanting to do the work involved in producing the main show. And then their bosses saw that he wasn’t going to do what he was supposed to and his ratings were in the toilet because he wouldn’t…they fired him.

      Wow he sure got screwed lol

      • Matt_Indeed

        They did only give him 6 months though, and his ratings weren’t in the toilet. They were just smaller than Leno’s. I’m not saying he didn’t do what you suggested, but I’m not sure they gave him much time.

        • Marv

          Puhlease, this wasn’t a new show it had been on their air for 15 years. He had 15 years to prepare for it.

          • Matt_Indeed

            Puhlease? Haaaaave mercy. 2 legit 2 quit. How rude!

          • Marv

            Well but…he really did have 15 years to prepare though…

      • I don’t see the not put the work in part

        • Marv

          You said yourself he wouldn’t change the show for a wide audience.

    • Matt_Indeed

      Yeah, I do think Conan was at his hottest when Larry King interviewed him, and the first time he did an L.A broadcast. Probably late 90’s/early 2000’s.

      • Marv

        I’d be interested to see his ratings breakdown. He seems like a guy that caught a certain segment of late teens/twentysomethings in the late 90s and then just never grew that audience.

    • Devin Harris

      He was a mark for the Tonight Show name. Could have jumped elsewhere and built his own thing. Once he did it was too late

    • I don’t blame him for playing hardball on the Tonight Show in his contract. That’s what you do when you negotiate. That’s how you get what you want.

      But then it’s on you to deliver, and if you can’t, you’re going to get canned. And he didn’t, so he got canned.

      I think that he’s hilarious, although I don’t really watch TV at all anymore.

      • Rick “The Hot Take King” Ross

        Exactly. The terms of the contract, however, didn’t allow for him to get canned because his ratings, while not Leno’s level, weren’t too far off either.

        Hence the $45 million settlement NBC had to pay up to make him go away.

        • It was pretty clear that he wasn’t a good fit for the show. They terminated the deal, they paid him what they owed him for doing so.

  • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

    Dave wanting the Tonight Show so bad that he left for CBS when he didn’t get it made sense because it was Johnny Fucking Carson, his idol and mentor and of course he wanted to be his successor. Conan fighting so hard for Jay Leno’s Tonight Show just felt wrong on so many levels, he’d have been better off going to FOX and starting from scratch.

    • Matt_Indeed

      This I absolutely agree with.

    • Rick “The Hot Take King” Ross

      The Tonight Show name still had value.

      • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

        True, but it seems like Conan didn’t want to do a continuation of what worked, he wanted to do what worked for him but under the Tonight Show banner. And that 11:30pm audience didn’t want to see the Masturbating Bear and Robot On A Toilet. The “rules” for that timeslot were fairly well established, so money and prestige aside he should have considered that. FOX didn’t have a “late night tradition” so he could have blazed his own trail.

  • Dwayne

    I thought Letteman was funnier than Leno, Conan, Fallon or any of those clowns.

    • Matt_Indeed

      Letterman was the king.

    • Rick “The Hot Take King” Ross

      Agreed

    • The Silver Fox

      Johnny Carson and David Letterman were the only ones I watched. And even then, it was only rarely and usually just the opening few minutes.

    • Letterman was my guy.

      • I’ll take old man Dave who’s past his prime and doesn’t get, nor care enough to learn about, this new concept of trying to create viral bits over any of the other modern guys.

    • chicagodem79

      Some of the bits on Leno’s show were funny (I always enjoyed the dumbass man on the street interviews, and the botched newspaper headlines/articles), but overall, I like Dave’s show better.

    • Devin Harris

      Conan was funniest in the 90s

      • Dwayne

        I can’t think of a time he made me laugh

    • Marv

      Letterman had a weird career arc where he was the funny not give a fuck guy through the 80s, then in the 90s cleaned it up and went wholesome because he just hated Jay so much and wanted to compete, to getting old and going back to being funny and not giving a fuck.

    • I never watched a lot of him, but he was ok.

    • Devin Harris

      He wasn’t that funny but he had the best/most interesting overall show. Mainly because he took more chances

    • chicagodem79

            Same here. He was okay doing Sully

          • Marv

            There’s a great Debbie Downer bit with Linday Lohan that Fallon breaks during and it’s hilarious. Of course the entire cast on the stage break during the segment too.

          • Facts

            I think I remember that Lohan episode. It might be the one where Lohan is wearing a push up bra during a Harry Potter skit.

          • Marv

            No clue I just saw that one sketch on Youtube and it was great. Dratch coudn’t get through a single line they were all so horrible

          • Facts

            This one?

          • Marv

            Lol yep. There’s just something so funny about seeing people trying not to laugh.

          • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

            Tracy Morgan hated him for that. Yes, Tracy Morgan, the pillar of professionalism.

    • This is true and so he’s perfect for that show.

    • Marv

      It’s delightful watching that show fall apart because none of the staff know how to be relevant.

    • chicagodem79

      He’s not funny, but he has very good bits on the show, that definitely appeal to the Gen X and younger crowd. He’ll be ok.

      • Devin Harris

        Anything celebrity bashed appeal to the new crowd. Dave was more adversarial which young people just didn’t want to see

    • I nothing the Red Sox, but Jesus Christ, maybe don’t get on the field and celebrate with the 2004 World Series team after they break an 86-year skid so you can shoot a scene for your shitty American remake of a British movie. FUCK OFF.

      • DAJackson7

        I saw that movie in a theater..He still owes me money

  • The Silver Fox

    I may be the only one here who remembers The Pat Sajak Show on late night.

    • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

      *waves*

    • Devin Harris

      We all remember it but none of us watched. Him and Tom what’s his face. I actually watched sometimes

      • Marv

        Tom Snyder? He was awesome.

        • Devin Harris

          Yeah. he was great in an old man kind of way.

          • Matt_Indeed

            I still remember Tom’s interview with Johnny Rotten.

        • DAJackson7

          Oh hell i loved the Tom Snyder version, and then it was Kilborn? Killborn sucked though. Then the gay British guy was good

          • chicagodem79

            Which was disappointing because I LOVED Kilbourn on ESPN.

    • Chevy Chase also had a show that no one cared about.

    • Dwayne

      No. I remember Carol Burnett. Very vaguely though because I was like 5

    • I remember that

  • Facts

    I hope Dave keeps the awesome beard for his Netflix show.

  • chicagodem79

    Did anybody ever watch the Magic Johnson Show? I never watched it one time so I could never assess whether it was good or not.

    • Dwayne

      It sucked.

    • This is the first I’m hearing of it.

    • Marv

      Only in a raincoat, y’know just in case

    • Dwayne

      Howard Stern made it funny by joking about it

    • It was bad.

      Apparently there was also an episode with Howard Stern as a guest, IIRC, and Stern just makes every horrible joke you could make about Magic and the poor guy just sits there and takes it the entire time and it’s just really sad to watch.

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        That was kinda his point. He spent weeks mocking the show and then declared he could show up and boost the ratings based on his presence alone. It worked for that episode but that’s it.

        After the appearance it’s reported that Magic’s bandleader Shelia E conducted a seance with sage and shit and waved it over the chair Stern sat on in an effort to ward off bad juju.

  • The Silver Fox

    Nightline was the other late night show I occasionally watched.

  • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

    So food trucks are deadly now?

    • Dwayne

      I wouldn’t want one falling on me

    • All trucks can be deadly.

      • TatR!

        But a kiss can be even deadlier I’m batman

  • Marv

    Mmm ok I’m gonna go rub a cheeseburger on my tits, be back in 30

    • Matt_Indeed

      Don’t forget to put it in your mouth!

  • Rick “The Hot Take King” Ross

    The only characteristics of Kimmel I like are his obsession with Saved By The Bell and hiphop.

    I’m obsessed with these two topics as well.

  • Facts

    This looks interesting:

    Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond

  • TatR!

    Conan was a writer on the Simpsons at a time when that show was basically perfect

    • The Silver Fox

      Marge vs The Monorail and Homer Goes to College being near perfect episodes.

      • Best_in_the_World

        Two of my all time favorites – Conan definitely deserves the recognition.

      • RudoWakening

        Homer Goes to College is the GOAT

        • Best_in_the_World

          I have that one saved on my DVR. “I’m sorry, boys. I’ve never expelled anyone before, but that pig had some powerful friends.” Classic!

    • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

      I feel like his actual contributions to the show have been exaggerated over time as his star power grew. He was just a low-end staff writer.

      • Matt_Indeed

        He was literally credited as the writer for Marge v. The Monorail.

        Whether he was low-end or not, he should be put into the TV Hall of Fame just for that one episode.

        • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

          I’m not saying he didn’t contribute, but he was one of many staffers who were a part of that Golden Era. He didn’t carry the show on his back single-handedly like Aaron Sorkin.

        • The Silver Fox

          The Monorail Song is likely my favorite Simpsons song, followed by The Stonecutter’s Song, Springfield Springfield and Who Need the Kwik-E-Mart.

      • RudoWakening

        He wrote “Homer Goes to College” and “Marge vs the Monorail,” two of the greatest episodes ever

        • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

          On the commentaries, they talk a lot about the actual writing process and how collaborative it really is. So while he’s credited as the writer, the whole room contributed to the episodes in terms of jokes and gags. He probably came up with the initial idea and then it got fleshed on in the room.

    • Marv

      *adds to list of reasons Conan sucks*

  • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

    Greeny, Michelle Beadle AND Jalen Rose?

    ESPN This Morning or whatever it’s gonna be called is shaping up to be quite the train wreck.

    • Matt_Indeed

      Another ESPN hot take show I will not be watching.

    • Dwayne

      I like J Rose. Beadle I don’t like at all

    • DAJackson7

      Do they show highlights and talk about last nights games? No? Hmm i suppose i can tune out more loud talking about everything in sports that has nothing to do with the actual competition.

    • I’d pay money for Jalen to just plow ahead and call Greeny “Jacoby” the whole time.

  • Rick “The Hot Take King” Ross

    The Image guys had a point.

    To this day, the characters they created are some of the most popular in the Marvel Universe. It’s cool to shit on 90’s artists now but they’re characters proved to stand the test of time.

    • Dwayne

      Should I reply again the same way I did when you posted this over there? Lol

      • Rick “The Hot Take King” Ross

        Separate universes. Those posts don’t exist here.

  • RudoWakening

    There’s a band that the local rock station plays called Bobaflex and they’re just terrible

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      That name sounds familiar

  • DAJackson7

    I called the Dr office at 7am this morning, nurse said Dr would call back soon, It’s now 8 hrs later..good lord i need to go somewhere that will just fix this shit and not have a run around

  • Marv

    God cheeseburgers rule, I want to 10 more kidney stones be damned

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      I don’t usually support facilitating the creation of Kidney Stones……but cheeseburgers are damn fine. You go get them burgers.

    • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

      Your body is weird.

    • I’m not sure where a word got deleted here, but either you want 10 more cheeseburgers or 10 more kidney stones.

  • The Silver Fox

    One of the weirder videos not made by either Peter Gabriel or David Byrne:

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      Weird. It says it’s unavailable in my country…..but I am pretty sure you’re in my country. Am I in Canada?

      • The Silver Fox

        I believe the kid set this computer up to be able to get around geographic restrictions on YouTube.

        • Mr. Money On The Table

          Clever

  • “No Way Jose” Gomez

    Is everyone cool now?

      We were but you ruined it.

      Geekery over, everybody. Blame Jose.

      I am doing my best to bring mother and father together.

      • Eww

        • Matt_Indeed

          Yeah, that couldn’t have sounded creepier.

        • Marv

          Agreed. How the motherfuck did I end up being the voice of reason here this is fucking absurd I just want to jerk off on a plant

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            Ha!

          • Fuck it, dude, nobody cares. I’m gonna find a rageaholics anonymous meeting or something.

          • Marv

            Oh, I care. I mean I get it’s a mistake but I care.

          • After he message I just received, I REALLY don’t give a shit.

          • I would hope the message I just got wasn’t a result of you trying to “fix” things. Cuz if it was… wow, dude. Don’t ever try to fix anything ever again.

          • Matt_Indeed

            Who doesn’t care? I think a lot of us care.

          • chicagodem79

            Random, but I understand your point lol.

      • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

        The Parent Trap IV? The thought of two Marvs makes me nervous.

        • DAJackson7

          Does anyone besides me and you know about The Parent Trap 2 and 3?

          • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

            Probably Silver Fox.

          • DAJackson7

            2 was legit awful. 3 at least had the hot triplets

          • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

            Apparently there was a fourth, so my joke failed. 🙁

          • DAJackson7

            Not the remake?

          • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

            The Parent Trap: Hawaiian Honeymoon.

            With a name like THAT, you know it has to be good!

          • The Silver Fox

            The only one I’m familiar with is the Hayley Mills one from 1961.

        • Devin Harris

          The Parent Trap House

    • TatR!

      personally I think TatRs been a rock throughout this entire thing

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    The one upside, if you can call it that, to Marilyn Manson getting crushed is he won’t have to spend a lot of money on braces and crutches and shit because he prolly has a lot of that shit left over from his “Antichrist Superstar/Holy Wood” periods.

  • Matt_Indeed

    I was reading more about Conan. I just like the guy, and he makes me laugh. I like self-deprecation, what can I say.

    • Marv

      I don’t actually dislike the guy, he seems smart and I bet would even admit he’s made mistakes. I was just shitting on the fans that only look at one side of the blow up.

      • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

        Bill Carter wrote a whole book basically saying that Conan was no wide-eyed innocent.

  • Matt_Indeed

    Gonna buy Pearl some flowers on the way home to congratulate her on getting back to school and working hard to get job interviews. I feel like I’ve been pretty “ho hum” in my support, so I’m going to be nice.

    • DAJackson7

      “Thanks for spending all our future money, here is forty more bucks down the drain!””

      • Matt_Indeed

        That’s kind of a cynical way of seeing it.

  • Rick “The Hot Take King” Ross

    My favourite Conan O’Brian quote on his final Tonight Show monologue.

    “ll I ask of you is one thing: please don’t be cynical. I hate cynicism — it’s my least favorite quality and it doesn’t lead anywhere. Nobody in life gets exactly what they thought they were going to get. But if you work really hard and you’re kind, amazing things will happen.”

  • The Silver Fox

    Ate out a lot this past week because I’ve been the only one home. My wife, her sister and my twin sister took a week long vacation in Maine together to view the foliage. The wife’s sister also ran the Mount Desert Island marathon on Sunday, so the other two were there for support.

    • Grampa Millionaire Bruce Wayne

      People really do take trips to look at dying leaves? That’s not just a sitcom trope?

      Huh.

      • The Silver Fox

        Try getting a hotel last minute in parts of Maine, Vermont or New Hampshire in the fall.

    • ProjectBlue

      Awesome. I so want to see Acadia in the autumn some year.

      • The Silver Fox

        As do I, although that will have to wait until I retire. Til then, I’ll have to console myself with Shenandoah and Great Smoky Mountain National Parks and the Blue Ridge Parkway (which is a pretty good consolation prize).

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    I ain’t no doctor….played one in a dirty movie a long time ago..but I am not licensed or whatever but I think I may be sick.

    • Marv

      AND YOU KNOW WHAT THE WORST THING IS?

      I NEVER LEARNED TO REEEEAAADDD

  • TatR!

    I still really like the band Bush. Their 2011 comeback album Sea Of Memories is a good listen.

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    Megadeth, why can’t you be good?

    • TatR!

      Why I oughta! They are good!

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    I wish I had a bottle of water. That would be swell.

    • Dwayne

      I have a whole pack. Take one

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        Nah. There’s distance. If you try to throw the water at your screen or phone or whatever it will just bounce off. It’s not worth it and potentially damaging.

    • Blackjack Jowalsen

      Oh man, you reminded me that I had a mug full of ice water that I hadn’t touched in a couple hours. Here I was, being thirsty like an idiot.

  • Facts

    What is the appeal of Candy Corn?

    • Dwayne

      Fuck if I know.

    • Marv

      That it’s not corn. Also it’s fun to bite in pieces like yum yellow part first, then white, then orange.

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      With each piece you taste history. Because each piece is from 1910. The last official time Candy Corn was manufactured.

      • Facts

        So that is what the early 1900’s tasted like.

        • Mr. Money On The Table

          Sugar and hate.

    • chicagodem79

      Not a clue.

    • Dwayne

      This Candy Corn tastes like candy crap.

    • Blackjack Jowalsen

      I imagine back in the day when people would eat boil balls of flour and animal fat, candy corn seemed like a delicious treat.

  • TatR!

    Mrs TatR is still really struggling. There’s basically no way to fix anything until we get pregnant again. It is very frustrating not really being able to do anything to make it better. I can try and not make things worse, which isn’t nothing, but still

    • Facts

      Marriage sure is fun, isn’t it?

      • TatR!

        I look back on my 20s with a lot of frustration, because I was so stressed out and anxious over basically nothing, and now we’re in our 30s with real issues it’s like dude what the fuck

        • Facts

          Oh it is. I don’t know your entire situation but those real issues at least for me take a shit load of work.

    • Marv

      That’s just dreadful man, and you’re right there’s nothing to be done.

      Although…you could skip all this and just show up one day with an adopted kid, she’d love that right

      • TatR!

        Yes hello this is Shelton, he’s 41 years old and living here now

        • Marv

          Lol, I was being half serious though. Adoption is an option and it would spare a lot of this craziness.

          • Comdukakis

            I miss Shelton

          • TatR!

            schedule is more of this treatment that worked earlier in the year, then IVF, then maybe some second IVF somewhere I guess, and then we’ll see

          • Marv

            Jeez, how much is all this costing?

          • TatR!

            right now nothing. lovely NHS. We get 3 goes at this initial treatment (we’ve used 2) and one free IVF. Then it’s $$$

          • Marv

            Ugh I need to move to England lol

          • TatR!

            do it quick because the people who run our government, and who those who love Brexit, want to turn this place in to the US very much

            I just don’t understand…..I really don’t.

    • Mikey

      I’m sorry my man.

  • Comdukakis

    I cant’ even begin to say how much being an adult sucks. When I was a kid/teen I couldn’t wait to grow up. Fuck that. I’ll take all the awkwardness and teen drama over adult shit in heartbeat

    • Dwayne

      Not me. My adult life is way better. I have no nostalgia for childhood. I didn’t have the worst childhood either. The only thing I don’t like is the bills.

      • Mikey

        Same. I have no use for being a kid anymore. And it wasn’t bad or anything but it’s nothing I’d really enjoy.

        • Dwayne

          Right. It was fine for then but I’d never go back.

      • The Silver Fox

        Pretty much my feeling too.

      • TatR!

        It’s a toughie. My adult life is better for sure, I just wish I’d enjoyed the earlier years more. But that’s not how being a teenager/20something works.

      • Marv

        I can’t even speak to this I’ve been living a child’s life for a child’s lifetime lol

      • Comdukakis

        I envy you man. Raising a kid, marital issues, 44 with zero retirement saved, 100k combined in student loans with the wife and I, all this car accident shit, dealing with medical insurance for my knee, working….it’s all garbage.

        Give me a nintendo, the Saturday game of the week and going out with friends on friday night after my basketball game any day

        • TatR!

          you can still have nintendo, football and pals, hopefully

          • Comdukakis

            nope. well I have a ps4 but no pals, and I’m not much of a baseball fan anymore. But I still have other sports to watch on tv

    • Facts

      I don’t like paying bills. Why can’t it be freeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee?

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      My teen years were bloody with a lot of instability and all sorts of mindfuckery. What I got now isn’t the best but it’s worlds better than my teen times….though I did get laid a lot more then. I do miss that.

    • chicagodem79

      The cycle of life is weird. As I watch my parents grow older, and start to need help doing basic things like my dad, it just puts life into perspective, no matter at which stage you are, you need to enjoy and cherish it.

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    Bloody hell!! I got a popcorn husk in me teeth and it’s driving me bananas.
    B-a-n-a-n-a-s

  • Facts

    I got Ken Burns’ The War and The Vietnam War today. I need to quit buying things off of Amazon or I am going to get in trooooooooooouble.

  • The Silver Fox

    It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown or A Charlie Brown Christmas?

    • Marv

      Christmas in all things, all ways

    • ProjectBlue

      Christmas but really close

    • Facts

      Christmas. Never Snoopy Come Home. NOPE

      • Comdukakis

        oh man that shit makes me cry

        • The Silver Fox

          Like Old Yeller, Snoopy Come Home is a film I saw once as a kid and have no desire to ever watch it again.

    • Christmas

  • ProjectBlue

    Tall people aren’t meant for kindergarten chairs. My butt hurts

  • Facts

    I think I am going to buy a small Christmas tree for my office.

    • ProjectBlue

      One of my buildings bans anything Christmas related. One of my buildings has Santa come. “Consistency”

  • Facts

    We are all emo apparently.

    • TatR!

      it’s why we all love pop punk so much

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      Says who?

    • TatR is. And maybe Matt.

      • Matt_Indeed

        I’m not emo.

  • Facts

    Playboy Set For First Transgender Playmate

    • Comdukakis

      that is what happens when your circulation is down 90%

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        It’s either this or they bring back Marge Simpson.

      • Facts

        Oh man Playboys!- Kids before smartphones.

        Mom I think I am blind now……..-Kids with smartphones.

    • That’s very modern.

  • Marv

    I hope they play Metallica under the entire Punisher show, every scene in every episode just comes along with a Metallica backing track. I would like that a lot.

  • TatR!

    night comrades

    • Marv

      Yeah I’m out too Edna should be home soon

  • Matt_Indeed

    She loved the flowers.

  • The Silver Fox

    Today is the 30th anniversary of Black Monday, the single biggest one day percentage drop in Dow Jones history (22.6% decline). Shorty after, I got involved in the market with some money from my grandfather. Been doing it ever since.

  • It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown is on ABC tonight?

    Well that’s some great news.

    • RudoWakening

      YEEEESSSSS

  • Dwayne

    Free week for NBA League pass. Yeah baby

    • Comdukakis

      I checked out a little last night. I can flip back between Chicago and the TNT game tonight.

  • Facts

    Gonna start The Vietnam War by Ken Burns. See you all later.

  • RudoWakening

    Gonna go for a nice walk.

  • Marv

    aaaaaand we’re watching GoT again before the hood of her car is even cooled off lol

  • The Silver Fox

    Current listening choice: The Very Best of Supertramp. I really do enjoy listening to their 70’s stuff.

    • RudoWakening

      ‘Breakfast in America’ is wonderful

      • The Silver Fox

        Crime of the Century is pretty good too.

  • I am exhausted. And I jut saw in my work email that I have to fill out a job description form for our new corporate overlords.

    This should be fun.

    • RudoWakening

      Have you not met with any of them yet? I can’t recall.

      • I haven’t personally. They’ve had meetings with the higher-ups, though.

        • RudoWakening

          Understood.

  • RudoWakening

    So I just unlocked Gorgoroth in Shadow of War. I managed to kill a Captain and get a pretty good weapon but HOLY FUCK I am not quite ready for it

    • Is Shadow of Mordor worth getting? I never played it

      • Comdukakis

        Same question

      • Boss Macklin

        I enjoyed it. The combat system is Arkham like and it has a very interesting and creative nemesis system that makes even random encounters meaningful and works brilliantly. My gripes would be that the open world design wasn’t that great and the storyline didn’t hook me as much as I had hoped.

        • RudoWakening

          Dude, in the new game the Captains and Warchiefs will adapt their fighting style during a battle which makes it more fun

      • RudoWakening

        It’s excellent. It was a fun play, with the parkour of Assassin’s Creed and a fighting style similar to the Arkham Games; the GOTY Edition was on sale on the PSN for $20 a couple of weeks ago.

        Shadow of War picks up from where the first game ended and BLOWS IT THE FUCK AWAY in terms of fighting, attributes, story, and the world map. This game is massive.

        • Yeah, I thought Shadow of War looked good and figured maybe I’d add to my backlog of games by getting Mordor first.

  • Stranger In the Alps

    Gonna watch the Dodgers sew this thing up tonight. Fuck the Cubs.

    I want to see that Yankees/Dodgers World Series. It’s just a classic old school match up that has all sorts of history behind it.

    • RudoWakening

      I’m happy as long as the Cubs lose.

  • The Silver Fox

    “I got a rock.”

  • Marv

    We’ve given up on this parenting gig, he’s outside in a puddle or something, who knows really? Anyway the GoT rewatch is fantastic. Edna cried for a good 10 minutes after Ned despite, y’know, totally knowing it was coming.

    • ProjectBlue

      “Baelor…”

  • Well this sucks …

  • Seems we got some lively conversation after I took off but not in a weird way. That’s good

  • Marv

    I love the first season of GoT. That last episode is just masterful, all the cards are totally shuffled and almost all the main characters are headed off on an adventure. Arya’s walking away with the bands of slaves, Jon is off to beyond the wall, Tyrion is off to be Hand to the cunts, and Danaenae births some dragons. Christ how awesome.

    • ProjectBlue

      It gets better each time for me as I let go of what I want/hope it to be and just enjoy it for what it is

      • Marv

        Yeah this rewatch is somehow much more fun because I’m just checking out where things are dropped in to be paid off later. Knowing what I know now the pilot episode is kind of a masterpiece, some of that shit doesn’t get paid off six and a half seasons.

        Watching Joffrey is harder though because I know now none of these people get their just revenge and instead it comes from the old battleaxe, which is fine and all but fuck I want even more badly on the rewatch to see Sansa put a knife in his gut lol

    • Boss Macklin

      At first I thought Danaenae was a typo but then I realized it was just you being you.

      • Marv

        I am very consistently me. I am a rock. I am an otter.

        • Boss Macklin

          I couldn’t find a clip of Frank asking “What’s an otter?” So angry.

  • Boss Macklin

    Touchdown Raiders even though that was totally OPI.

  • Well at least they made the national league finals

    • Marv

      That’s good they got the game finished this early at least. Too many crazy late night games lately.

      • Oh its only the 3rd

        • Marv

          Exactly.

          • Marv

            You just got Marv’d now shut up and enjoy seeing your team play in October

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    Eh, screw it. Let’s watch Artie Lange eat some hot wings.

  • Holy shit.

    I just read the second issue of Astro City.

    Seriously. Wow.

    • Marv

      I TOLD YOU I TOLD YOU I TOLD YOU

    • Which issue is that?

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        I would guess issue #2.

      • Marv

        The reporter that witnesses a giant battle between superheroes. God it is so fucking good. It’s my favorite single issue of a comic book ever.

        • Ah yes that is a good one

          • Marv

            It’s…I don’t know. I can’t accurately put into words how much I love that issue. It’s like a graphic summation of a belief system.

    • RudoWakening

      I just started reading it on my lunch break today

  • Professor Chaos

    Just got home from work. today was exhausting

    • The Silver Fox

      Busy time coming up with the end of the first quarter of the school year and dealing with report cards and parent teacher conferences.

      • Professor Chaos

        today was earthquake drill and parent conferences

        • The Silver Fox

          We did our annual lockdown drill on Friday.

  • Marv

    Ordering pizza, just gonna keep on watching GoT

    The one terrible aspect of this rewatch is constantly pausing to google certain stuff like “Hey wait, we already know where this goes. Let’s find out exactly the meaning of the comet! We can do that this time!”

  • Matt_Indeed

    Massive heart burn from dinner + worked out = fuuuuuuuu

    • If its acid reflux type heart burn baking soda and water

    • Marv

      Peyton’s dumb, pour bourbon on it.

      • Matt_Indeed

        No bourbon in the house for 10 days now. 🙁

        • Marv

          Ah so you’ve got a sex bet going too

          • Matt_Indeed

            …..

            No. I wish.

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        Pfft….screw that. Ram a finger down there….get that acid blood the fuck outta there…

      • Those are two different thoughts …neither is technically wrong

  • RudoWakening

    Clayton Kershaw is really good at baseball

    • Matt_Indeed

      Water is wet.

  • Matt_Indeed

    I guess I missed It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.

    I need a better antenna, or to stop being a cheap asshole and at least get the local cable package for events such as these.

    But I’m so very, very cheap.

    • Marv

      Or just have all the Charlie Browns on Blu-Ray for watching through the whole year it’s the only way to go

      • Matt_Indeed

        This I guess needs to happen.

        • Marv

          I’m stunned it didn’t already. Did you not get your New Dad Starter Pack in the mail? Wtf

          • Matt_Indeed

            I’m ashamed of myself.

            I have Christmas on CD at least.

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        It’s good to have around. My old man has the DVD boxed set. It comes loaded with the shitty specials from like, the 80’s as well.

    • ProjectBlue

      For the living room tv, I was too cheap to wire it (would have to pay the installation cost plus another box) so just have ABC and a couple others in the winter time when the leaves go away. Rest of use is Netflix/Prime and other streaming stuff

  • Boss Macklin

    Amerson is Being abused out there.

  • Reasonable Opinion Ghost
  • Boss Macklin

    Restarted Seinfeld on Hulu. Until i watched it today i had been in my longest drought of not watching Seinfeld in my life. I hadn’t watched it in a good 2-3 years. Not a single episode. It was nice getting back into the show.

  • Marv

    Asshole face announces he read my favorite comic ever and he knows it’s my favorite because we’ve talked about it here and in email and in person and after dropping that he just disappears what an asshole face

    • I was reading more Astro City…

      Asshole face.

  • Matt_Indeed

    I needed the monkey back.

    • Reasonable Opinion Ghost

      ……..its a chimp

      • Matt_Indeed

        Whatever the fuck.

      • Marv

        lmao

        • Matt_Indeed

          This fuckin’ guy, ya know.

          • Marv

            Reliable as hell lol

      • This should be lamented

    • I don’t even remember this one. I liked Grumpy Bear.

      • Matt_Indeed

        Oh, he was good too.

  • RudoWakening

    Frida has family visiting for the next few days so at least I don’t have to worry about staying up late to FaceTime

    • Marv

      I assume the worst of the fires and all that are over?

      • RudoWakening

        I think so. Her cousins that are visiting came up from Winters which is in the central valley. Unless they went to the 299 they had to come up the 101 through Mendocino, which has been on fire. She said it’s been POURING for about 35 minutes now so we’re getting winter early.

  • Professor Chaos

    Despite being down 9-0, I think the cubs still have a chance

    • Matt_Indeed

      Like Lloyd with Mary Swanson.

  • Matt_Indeed

    I’m watching the game. Kershaw has them bent over a chair.

    • Professor Chaos

      easy to do when you are up 9-0

  • Facts

    The Vietnam War doc is pure sex.

    • Matt_Indeed

      I need to see it.

      • Facts

        Its amazing

    • Marv

      It really is fantastic. I burned through half of it before getting tired, I need to finish it the next time I get eight hours.

  • Matt_Indeed

    Marv, have you been to Dodger stadium?

    • Marv

      I have it’s splendid. They have a really old lady that plays a Take Me Out on a legit organ.

    • Boss Macklin

      He has. It’s #5 behind Orioles, Safeco, AT&T, can’t think of another one.

      • Matt_Indeed

        How can you remember that?

        • Boss Macklin

          Can’t think of another one really stuck in my mind.

      • Marv

        Wow lol

        And it’s Busch

        • Boss Macklin

          I was right? FUCKING SWISH.

          • Boss Macklin

            I still got it *clap clap clapclapclap*

          • Marv

            I remember literally not one of your 300 Top Whatever lists so, there ya go lol

          • Boss Macklin

            Logically I know I shouldn’t be hurt by this but I felt a momentary sting of hurt when I read this.

          • Marv

            You should check out Always Sunny in Philadelphia it’s really funny

          • Boss Macklin

            Never heard of that. What’s the premise?

          • Marv

            I don’t think there is one really.

          • Boss Macklin

            Sounds like Seinfeld.

          • He thinks my name is actually Asshole face.

            He’s hurtful.

          • Marv

            I just want to spend an hour talking about that issue is all

          • I’m not even gonna be awake another hour. But I’d love to. It was really great.

          • Marv

            Whatevs we’ll do it tomorrow, then I can reread it tonight

          • Ok. I’ll reread it in the morning.

  • Professor Chaos

    Neighbor has xmas lights up already. Fuck those people

    • Matt_Indeed

      Even I think that is wrong.

    • Boss Macklin

      So he’s just jumping past Halloween and Thanksgiving decorations? What a Neanderthal.

    • Facts

      Its not even Halloween yet.

  • Facts

    The background on what happened to Vietnam before the war is really just amazing stuff.

  • Matt_Indeed

    Kris Bryant decided to finally hit something down 9-0 with no one on base on the brink of elimination.

  • Professor Chaos

    Cubs are coming back

    • RudoWakening

      I’m afraid I’ve got some bad news

  • RudoWakening

    I’m falling asleep here. Better make sure the tag on my blankie is down at my feet

    • Matt_Indeed

      That was a manly sentence.

      This coming from the Gilmore fan.

      • RudoWakening

        You can’t have the tag up near your head. That is a ludicrous concept.

  • Boss Macklin

    I actually am disturbed that someone asks Marv’s Opinion on a baseball park and I rattle off the top 5 without even thinking about it.

    • Marv

      I don’t think I’ve listed them anywhere in probably three months or more.

      • Boss Macklin

        So it’s not even a recency thing. They’re just imbedded in my mind.

        • Marv

          Yep.

    • You should be.

    • Marv

      Also I want Marv’s Opinion capitalized like that henceforth it makes it seem very valuable.

      • Boss Macklin

        …my phone autocorrected it to that lol.

        • Marv

          As it should, that’s great.

  • Facts

    I guess Yankees/Dodgers will be an ok series

  • Matt_Indeed

    So we’re getting Dodgers v. Yankees.

    New York v. Los Angeles.

    Major League Baseball and the sports media are furiously jerking off right now.

    • Marv

      Yeah that’s a devastatingly boring match up. These whole playoffs have been bad. Not that I’ve been watching them I haven’t seen three seconds I just wanted to Worst in the World it up for a second.

      • Matt_Indeed

        What I’ve seen, they haven’t been great for the most part.

        But I might be bitter because of the ALDS outcome.

        • Marv

          Yeah I’d have watched the Series if Cleveland was in it, they were the only team I really gave a tiny bit of a shit about.

          • Matt_Indeed

            It was such a fun year for us, and so deflating at the end.

          • Marv

            Baseball sucks lol

          • Matt_Indeed

            And is also the best.

        • The American League games have been great, even the ones the Yankees have lost. Really amazing baseball played all the way through. The National League side of things seems to have been more of a rout.

          • Matt_Indeed

            Like I said, bitter.

          • The Indians played really good baseball.

          • Matt_Indeed

            They did.

  • Professor Chaos

    Today, we had to stay late because of parent teacher conferences so tomorrow is a minimum day. Unfortunately, we have to stay all day tomorrow. A lot of of us want to go out to celebrate one teachers last day

    • Marv

      I feel bad for those bartenders.

      • Professor Chaos

        Yeah they won’t get our business because we have to stay

        • Marv

          You’re right I can’t read.

    • RudoWakening

      I don’t think your school knows what minimum means.

      • Professor Chaos

        It would be different if we didn’t have to stay late today

    • ProjectBlue

      We do 3 half days in a row, 2 of them have to go back in the evenings, one of them we stay from end of school half day to what would be about the end of the regular day. I’m not a fan of this schedule. Especially since I usually end up doing nothing

  • Facts

    You know I keep seeing all these sexual misconduct issues actresses are bringing to light after the stories came out of Harvey Weinstein. In the back of my mind part of me thinks some might be saying things happened to them to help their career or get their name in the news.

    • RudoWakening

      That is the wrong way to think about it and a big reason why women won’t come forward. People think they’re doing it for money or fame and don’t believe them

      • Facts

        Im not saying they arent all true im just saying in a business like hollywood it wouldn’t surprise me.

      • ProjectBlue

        I’m sure some things there is that bandwagon affect but something like this doesn’t make sense to me. “let’s get that actress that was molested for our next big thing!” plus I’d bet it hurts them anyway “oh, this one’s high maintenance and mouthy, better pass” . People just suck

    • Matt_Indeed

      This is pretty terrible.

    • Marv

      It sucks to say but…yeah I bet some have. I bet though that whatever that number is it’s way outweighed by the people that have come out about it that wouldn’t have if famous people hadn’t already.

    • I’m sure that there are some that do that. Humans of both genders are known to lie. But where there’s smoke there’s fire. You don’t have dozens of generally unrelated women telling very similar stories and it’s all made up.

  • Both kids down. Ate pizza. Brushed teeth. Did puzzles. Cleaned up. Read a story. Did math.

    Success.

  • Facts

    Im running on like 2 hours of sleep so please ignore my crazy thoughts.

    • Matt_Indeed

      Will do.

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    Man, my nose be burnin’.

    • Matt_Indeed

      Cocaine joke

      • Matt_Indeed

        I’m tired.

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        It’s actually not though I knew it would head that way. Somewhere down the line my sinuses got jumped and my nose won’t stop running.

        • Matt_Indeed

          That sucks.

  • Matt_Indeed

    Alright, see ya tomorrow fellas maybe

  • Marv

    In contrast with Mahn’s post we are putting the boy down 20 minutes early and without a bath again (it’s a morning time thing now lol) because we want to watch Thrones and eat more pizza.

    • ProjectBlue

      I took it he put the kids to sleep first then did all those things.

    • Professor Chaos

      How about put the kids to sleep and then give a bath?

    • I was supposed to do baths tonight but I got out of that by asking my Mom to do it when she has them tomorrow.

      That was the biggest success of all.

  • Tomorrow I am going to a beer fest with The Wife. There are 400 different beers – all on cask, a DJ spinning vinyl, art, and free pinball. I am very excited and only wish that I had time to let my beard grow out further.

  • Professor Chaos

    I have never been to a playoff game of any kind.

    • I went to one of the games in the 92 or 93 World Series that we won. Not the final, but one of the games.

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      I attended one of the North Stars 1991 playoff games against Edmonton.

  • Boss Macklin

    Watching the episode of Seinfeld where Elaine is going to move into Jerry’s building and Kramer volunteers Jerry to loan Elaine $5,000. Jerry would totally have been justified in ripping Kramer’s head off for that.

    “Just like you can’t wear swastikas to school, you cannot wear ‘Make America Great Again.’”

    That’s what Cherokee, Ga., math teacher Lyn Orletsky told two students in a video posted to Turning Point News when she asked them to leave her classroom in early September, the Cherokee Tribune and Ledger reported.

    The two River Ridge High School students were wearing shirts with President Donald Trump’s campaign slogan “Make America Great Again.” She asked the students to “please go,” or at least turn their shirts inside-out if they were to remain in her class…

    Cherokee County Schools spokeswoman Barbara Jacoby told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution the instructor was wrong to ask the students to leave and that the shirts did not violate the dress code in any way…

    Although the school board never did fire Orletsky, she announced her resignation Tuesday, saying she had received death threats and was afraid for her safety, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

    • Booscuit

      Gross. School is where kids should be loud and ignorant as hell. If MAGAs wanna MAGA, they should do so.

  • So this Harry Hole book. I have literally never heard it mentioned anywhere, not even on this site or the BoD, but then today everyone is talking about it. How does that happen? What happened in the world that suddenly today – not yesterday or tomorrow – this is on everyone’s lips?

    • Marv

      A movie came out about it recently…I guess? I’ve never heard of it either but just googled and it seems like a movie just came out

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    I like how all Jean Claude Van Damme movies are just him literally playing a parody of himself.

    • I boycott him entirely as a kid with the sole exception of Street Fighter.

    • Professor Chaos

      only saw 1 movie of his: bloodsport

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        His one good movie.

  • Marv

    Poor Theon basically gets fucked from the second he leaves the Starks. Like right off the boat his sister is there to fuck with his head and pretend to be into him, then his dad fucks with him, then he gets his dick cut off and can’t fuck no more. This dude is just pushed around like a motherfucker lol

    • Professor Chaos

      Grey worm doesn’t have a dick and he seemed to fuck quite nicely last season

    • Professor Chaos

      That’s what Theon gets for burning rickon and bran

  • Boss Macklin

    Cook drops a game winning touchdown. These receivers drop way too many passes. Three straight penalties on the last play of the game has kept this game going. Three totally justified penalties though.

  • Boss Macklin

    Carr is exercising some Chiefs demons here.

  • Boss Macklin

    Raiders finally beat the Chiefs! 5 game losing streak ends. Ironically, last time they beat them was on a Thursday Night game in Oakland.

  • What’s good, chodes?
