    R,I.P. Thread

    He's in the Rise of Skywalker Trailer. Oh hell that must be the new guy. Now I really am crushed.

    One more movie to go. I hope the theater will lose its shit. Not a bad cultural legacy to be a known character across 7 films and you didn't speak a word of English. R.I.P. RIP.

    Avengers Endgame- SPOILERS

    It was good. Probably the first Marvel film I will see in the theaters twice (last time I did that was the first Guardians of the Galaxy. Some really nice callbacks probably my favorite was the blink and you miss it cameo of the kid from Iron Man 3 during the funeral scene. I'll just say it (and I know I am probably in the minority here) I felt the movie would have been better if everyone had to deal with the ramifications of what Thanos left behind and not going back and solving all their problems with infinity stones so the good guys win like they always do. Now that Thor is hanging out with the Guardians I hope that means he is in Guardians of the Galaxy 3.
  4. Not really. All it says is that the writer from Red Country lived to the age of 95 and is known for other works that give us a clue about where the chips ultimately feel in Stiria but we don't know for sure his "Life of Dab Sweet" is mentioned but also a later work called "Arch duchess of Villiany" so I guess in the future in the union people talk about Monza the way people talk about Lady McBeth. Yes the name might be correct but they got the details all wrong.
  5. I was just going to PM you and then I thought I would post this for people who didn't know about it. https://www.amazon.com/Sharp-Ends-Stories-World-First/dp/031639081X/ref=tmm_hrd_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=1555515349&sr=8-1-fkmrnull
  6. I got that feel at the start. Remember what Yoru Sulfur said about the first policy of V&B being to work with what they find before they strive to change it and it was Curnisbeck who was absent for a considerable part of the story because he was in Adua and we all know what that means. The really theme of First Law for good or bad is that the choice you have is between the Gurkish and the Union. Murcatto tried to do something different and all she probably did (long term) was piss them both off. If you read the short story "Freedom" it was the union that survived to write the history.

    International thread 2

    It doesn't seem possible that something like this could have happened to something that was there 600 years before there was a United States of America. And the worst part was the look of stunned silence on the part of the citizens of the city. I am glad to hear that much of the artwork had been moved out because of the renovations.

    The Umbrella Academy

    Damn auto correct you know what I meant.

    The Umbrella Academy

    We shouldn't overlook the flaws of something just because we like certain elements of it. Star Trek 5 was a Star Trek movie. It doesn't absolve Shatner for his idiotic plot. I will say 5 was adorable in a smug little asshole kind of way. I almost turned off the (2nd?) episode? But then he went to the Diner and killed those guys.

    The Umbrella Academy

    I find the best way to handle any new Netflix show is to go into it with zero expectations. Then you can be pleasantly surprised. It is also a good illustration of how my ability to tolerate a show's bullshit has really fallen as I have gotten older. An eccentric billionaire adopts 7 children for purposes that aren't really clear and everyone is like "Ok that's cool you're rich and white I don't see how thats a problem" And don't get me started on the damn talking money.

    US Politics: A Farewell to Arms

    I really think this is why Trump will win in 2020 in microcosm. He doesn't give a shit that he has an unpopular message or an unpopular image. He goes out every single day and repeats the same thing consistently so people actually start to believe it. Its something I have always admired about Republicans truly awful ideas but damn they are great salesmen to bad what they are selling is so often moonshine and snake oil. What do I say to all of my Republican family members who go on and on about a "false report cooked up by the Dumbocrates" that always somehow fail to mention the weaponized wikileaks?

    It was great that he got to live to be the grand old man of Science Fiction. He was a man, take him for all in all, I shall not look upon his like again.”

    US Politics: Dead Pimps Need Not Apply

    A lot of things spring to mind with the events of the last week A. Somewhat surprised Trump just hasn’t declared martial law (although I guess the week isn’t over yet) B. God it never fucking changes when a Republican wins all they do is crow about an incredible mandate from heaven they have been given but when they lose it has to have been voter fraud. Guys get some new material. At least now the Democrats have the potential for some real victories and not just the symbolic ones we have been consoling ourselves with for two years. On a nonpolitical note I am more then a little disgusted with myself right now mass shootings have become so commonplace in this country its like waiting for a new Netflix season to drop. The banality and regularity of it all is the most horrifying part.

    US Politics: In Through the Out Door

    I guess I never realized how badly the deck was stacked because as a Liberal in South Carolina I am used to losing by a 60/40 margin how the hell do you win the popular vote of the various senate races by almost 11 million votes and still not control the senate?

    US Politics: In Through the Out Door

    I’m still sort of in shock. After 14 years of voting in South Carolina my vote for Joe Cunningham actually mattered. Never would have happened if the Republican running against him hadn’t been so heavily in favor of off shore drilling.
