  1. Automation's coming faster than you think. By 2019 three companies are going to start pilot automated trucks program. Trucking industry provides the maximum blue collar jobs in America. People thinking the mining situation is bad have no idea what's coming. Also, I highly doubt automation is going to lead to some sort of utopia with better lives for everyone. The biggest flaw in this premise being the presumption that people will utilise this post-work time productively , for have any sort of productive contribution to make in the first place.
  2. I'm sorry. I wish I could have offered something more concrete, some real advice or support , but all I've got to offer is a sincere wish that everything works out for you. And some contacts in Brussels who specialise in making problems go away..
  3. Yeah their reactions are my favorite part as well. That's true. Though the same can also be said of a certain other guy who helmed a certain other franchise Hey, the OT is good , no doubt about it. But LotR is not just in a different league altogether,no ; they're not even playing the same sport.
  4. Nah but seriously, this is the best trilogy ever.
  5. Fire Walk is in that weird zone where I wouldn't really recommend it to anyone, but it is very important in the larger scheme of things re: TP. Lynch's rest of filmography is similarly weird. Inland Empire was him getting lost up his own ass, Lost Highway is similarly pretentious but less insufferable, Blue Velvet is really good though, and Eraserhead I can forgive because how damn creepy it is
  6. NEVER !! Never till the last of the Men of the West is standing will something so insidious as a LotR reboot be alllowed to exist ! LotR is the greatest film trilogy and so shall it be for One Thousand years ! Also not a real big fan of Star Wars Yeah and @RhaenysB if I were you I'd download Tor and start roaming the murky bazaars of the Deepweb
  7. On the topic of scary Lynch.....
  8. My man FOMN continues to develop his impeccable taste. I'd say Mulholland is the perfect starting point for Lynch (Eraserhead is a bit too absurd ) though Blue Velvet is good too. The key to understanding Mulholland Drive is to know beforehand you are watching Lynch's depiction of dream logic. Too many of ny friends got way too caught up in specifics , trying to 'decode' or 'solve' this movie which of course affected their enjoyment of the movie. What about Twin Peaks ? I'd recommend a watch of that too if you haven't already, especially because Lynch has created what I personally regard a pitch perfect revival of the series with The Return (airing currently) . Would love to have you join the discussions over it. If you do so, the order recommended is S1 - S2- FWWM - The Return. (Despite FWWM being a prequel)
  9. Now, some questions and theorizing
  10. There doesn't seem to be much discussion about this here. See, so far The Return is the perfect revival for me. All other 'revivals' so far have felt like nostalgia milking cash grabs, or creators actually being under the delusion that a dead horse can be made to run on fumes. This show feels like there's a story left to be told, and I'm all for it. Lynch has always been a real hit or miss for me. Love Mulholland Drive, hate Inland Empire. There are certain areas he's really bad at, but some areas where the man OWNS. Nobody builds tension like David Lynch. The man's a master at using every film making audio and visual trick to create suspense (people go gaga over his visuals but his strongest suit has always been sounds and noises; that phonograph for example)The Glass Box (I really hope they explain that) and the blind lady scene in the rose-colored room that was all jumpy editing with the banging was the most unnerving for me in the series premier. Ep 1 and 2 were more Mulholland than TP, but that was duely rectified in Ep 3,4 and 5.The show's making good use of old and new cast members alike ; deploying nostalgia just right without over doing it (Lol at Jacobi's gold shovels schemes ; also Nadine is exactly where she would be 25 years later). I originally though Cooper was possessing Dougie. Cooper is not in Dougie's body. Dougie was transported to the Black Lodge and destroyed/reduced to the gold ball. Cooper was transported from the purple room in his own body. This was shown by having several characters state that he has lost weight and has different hair. He also had his Great Northern key in his pocket. On that subject, I originally thought introducing a third Cooper doppelganger was stupid. Now that I think about it (and seeing the direction the show has went in) I love it. Also anybody noticing Cooper is being slowly woken from his stupour by coffee ? Lol. Also, Mr Jackpots and Wally Brando
  11. Yeah, Bilquis was a strange contender to focus on in expanding the scope of this world. I honestly thought they would introduce Anansi Boys as a subplot
  12. 'MURICA !!!!!!!!
  13. That cherry notting trick is still one of the hottest things I've ever seen
  14. https://giphy.com/gifs/arrested-development-michael-cera-george-bluth-3oEjI80DSa1grNPTDq I'm gonna tell you what my dearly departed Grandfather used to tell me : when opportunity's not opening any doors for you, knock one down yourself, if you catch my drift
  15. I know we tolerate lewdness and all, but this is so risqué I'm afraid I'm crossing a line here
