  1. NFL 2016 Offseason: THIS Is The Year!

    Looks like he always did against Kentucky...
  2. Clearly we will need them to leave as they all become erratics and begin to seek atrocity to remember.
  3. You got a problem with Liv and Maddie?!!!?

    Dunno about Mississippi State. Even in the halcyon days of the Woodson years when we were objectively better than them, we still lost to them every year. They were the one team that I felt kept us from reaching the 8-9 win plateau. I'm just glad to see Prescott making NFL defenses look like the highlight reels that always featured a ton of Kentucky film!
  5. Yes, that is how I always read it as well.
  6. College football 2016 - aSECendency

    Got tickets to Kentucky vs Southern Miss for opening weekend. On first glance it sounds like it should be a minor conference cupcake, but Southern Miss was really good last year and is picked to win C-USA this year. To make it worse, they hired UK's offensive coordinator from last year that was a constant punching bag for fans. If we were to lose to them, it would be tragic on multiple levels. The path to a bowl will require 3 non-conference wins (because UofL is a loss this year without a doubt) plus wins over Vandy, South Carolina, and at Mizzou. Certainly doable, but no margin of error. So we will know by late evening September 4 whether we will need to purchase any more tickets for the season or if we should just spend more time watching Bam Adebayo highlight reels.
  7. Stormlight Archives, The Dark Tower, The Wheel of Time

    Every book I have read for the last five years has come from recommendations in this sub forum. Stickied at the top of the page are two topics with titles like Before You Start a Thread Asking For Recommendations You started a brand new thread to ask about three book series featuring New York Times Bestsellers... That said, Wheel of Time was fantastic... For when it was written. It's been accurately described here, comes across as a bit juvenile at times; but it's an enjoyable story. It features one of the best magic systems in fantasy. I honestly think Sanderson did a better job finishing it than Jordan would have. It has the notable advantage of being complete. If the appeal of Stormlight Archives is the magic system, I would actually recommend other complete series/standalones by Sanderson. Elantris. Warbreaker. And especially Mistborn which has two completed trilogies. They all feature well thought out, unique systems. Stormlight is fun, but even the prolific Sanderson is slowing down on writing it. I've not read Dark Tower, but the description in this thread is in line with what I've read. Look around this sub-forum and you will find many other (better?) recommendations. Names like Abercrombie. Scott Lynch. Mark Lawrence. Guy Gavriel Kay (GGK has low magic settings and political intrigue). Book series like Malazan. Dune. The Expanse. The Dagger and Coin. Series that take on cult like followings like The Second Apocalypse. Many others. The denizens of this part of the forum are some of the most read you'll find in fantasy. Delve in and you'll never miss GRRM. I haven't thought of TWoW in years.
  8. Video Games: No Man's Pie

    You could play through TBC and WotLK content and then play a Pandaran Monk through old world Cata content up to 60 then go back to your main and play the "new" Cata content that starts in Vashjir and level your way up. I'm working on the Loremaster Achievement. I have it for Outland, Northrend, and Draenor. I'm missing one zone for Cata (Uldum) and three for Pandaria. But then the real slog begins of cleaning up Kalimdor and Eastern Kingdoms.
  9. Rogue One: 2 Rebellious 2 Fail

    Regarding the unlikely prospect of a "film noir", I think it highly improbable considering the cancellation of the Star Wars game to be set in the Coruscant lower levels. (1313 Was that the name?)
  10. Rogue One: 2 Rebellious 2 Fail

    I agree. Part of what makes the MCU work so well is that they have different themes. The buddy movie, the heist flick, the WW2 drama... Disney is full of smart people, at some point someone is going to have to point out that there's a big Galaxy out there far, far away.
  11. In one of the TGO spoiler threads, someone linked it. Think it may have been early in the second thread. It was in response to me asking the same question.
  12. Would be a travesty. Mary Jane is a lot of things, but awkward is not one of them.
  13. All comes down to the overall appearance. Joker has green hair and white skin. He typically doesn't have tattoos. Mary Jane is a redhead.
  14. I still have problems reconciling the difference in the WLW's vision. The first one being when his sword breaks when AK parries and the shard runs him through. The second being the ending of TGO when we see him throw the hilt at him.
  15. Had a thought while posting in Suicide Squad thread. So in this thread I've been told that red hair is a description not a character trait... But why all the fuss over Joker having tattoos? They also would be a descriptor not a character trait, no? What if the Joker didn't have green hair? There are some characters who are so uniquely attached to their physical description that I believe anything short of that is selling the character short. RE:. Lois Lane. I said nothing of her hair. I don't believe that to be a major descriptor. I was speaking of what character is most closely identified with a superhero to the point that non comic fans would know them. I'd say it's Robin to Batman. Lois to Superman. And I would say Mary Jane to Spidey,
