    NBA 2018: Fear the Deer

    The Sixers have even less shooters now. As a Raps fan I am not worried by them or this trade at all.

    Penny Dreadful : City of Angels

    I agree that the show was likely cancelled due to ratings however this show being greenlit would point otherwise. Why would they greenlit a sequel show to a show with garbo ratings if only to get worse ratings from it?

    Penny Dreadful : City of Angels

    I absolutely adore Penny Dreadful. I also loved the League of Extrordinary Gentlemen in comic form before that. If this is another thing of that sort I'm all in.

    Tolkien 3.0

    The problem with this line of thinking to me is that you are coming from a place where the Valar are just bastions of good and justice and all that. They aren't. They are vindictive, jealous, wrathful, dickheads who consistently fuck up and that's not even counting Melko. They didn't help the Men prior to Earendil (except for Orome and Ulmo going behind their backs) because they were heavily overcompensating with how bad they fucked up with the Elves earlier. They were attempting to leave them alone. Of course their plan was flawed because as always they ignored what Melko and his ilk were doing. Then they overcompensated again for the Men who fought Melko and gave them Numenor but more importantly fucked with Eru's vision and made them "better". This later bit them in the ass because the "better" men realized they were essentially better than the Elves and thus wanted a piece of that immortality pie. The downfall of Numenor isn't as much to punish Men as it is to punish the Valar and correct their mistake. Eru basically says "You twats have been fucking up for tens of millenia. You wanted a safe place to play with your toys for eternity. Great job, you now got it. You can no longer affect things in the world because I am taking you out of it. Fucking Morons."
  5. And the Bucks and Raps play Monday night in Milwaukee, which has seen its fair share of visitors. EDIT: as to the proposed Houston trade my problem with it is I don't think it gets the Rockets past the Warriors. And so killing your future for nothing.
  6. Minny should take that immediately. Not only for the picks but in 2 years it means the Rockets are done Nets style for a good 4-5 years. Morey should be fired if he ever actually offered that.
  7. Yeah a little strong, but I loathe the Celtics. Glad Kawhi shit on them.
  8. Eat a dick Boston. You will eat more as the season goes along.

    More Things Star Wars

    So not sure why but this just popped up an hour ago in my youtube recommends thing. Poor video/audio quality but whatever. Apparently the person put this on youtube just this month so.... I certainly have never seen it before and I'm curious if any of you have. Now granted Empire was, is, and always will be my favourite movie but I still found this pretty fascinating. For example, I've seen a lot of "making of" stuff about the classic trilogy and I'm sure parts were taken from this but I certainly have never seen the footage of the poor guy walking on almost stilts in the wampa suit in a blizzard on top of a glacier. Great stuff I think.

    Marvel Netflix - Sweet Christmas!

    Iron Fist officially cancelled. https://ca.ign.com/articles/2018/10/13/iron-fist-canceled-netflix-kills-first-marvel-series I hope they finally realized IF and LC aren't good by themselves and just make Heroes for Hire already.

    More Things Star Wars

    I thought his Star Wars books were poorly written garbage but all the "fan" uproar that came with it as you describe was and is disgusting. And then to be fired for nothing work related at all is really upsetting. I'd hope there is a legal recourse he could take against them because that is straight bullshit.
  12. So tonight the Raps 905 (G league team) plus Siakam, Anunoby, and CJ Miles beat the Pelicans playing their full roster (AD played 31 mins). Are the Pels that bad?

    More Things Star Wars

    I'd agree with that. Ren weirdly gets a sort of Campbellian Hero's Journey (so does Luke for that matter) that Rey simply doesn't in TLJ.

    More Things Star Wars

    Well that just sucks; not because of the actor, I like him but because he's a relatively well known actor as now he'll have his helmet off all the time which is the best part of the Mandalorian get up.

    WHEEL OF TIME tv show: Go on,tug my braid!

    I don't think they will be that hard in terms of dresses and such, Just borrow some from a Jane Austen adaptation or American Revolution show etc.
