    Cord Cutting Advice - Not the newborn type

    Sports is the only reason to have live tv, tbh. World Cup finale is tomorrow and we're backing our Hulu subscription back to just on-demand (no commercials). Aside from the games, we never watch a show live anyway. Who wants their schedule dictated by show schedules anymore? And as an aside, we were really happy with Word Cup coverage on Hulu. We could watch the game in English or Spanish channels. Neither had any broadcast issues.

    Marvel Cinematic Universe 9: Returning to the Fold

    Looks like it'll be a prequel, so yeah a spy thriller.

    That's where the initial conversation I posted came from... Long Horn Steakhouse.

    Well, that conversation reflects about 1/4 of our conversations these days. The parts where he acknowledges I may in fact know something about life. The rest are more like "All my friends have Snapchat and Instagram! I'm practically a teenager too! You have no idea what it's like to be a teenager in the 21st century. You're a horrible parent!" The last part is what make the above restaurant exchange so satisfying. I ain't perfect, but I'm doing the best I can. Sometimes it works. And then there's also his tendency to skip meals, snack on junk, and then he gets "hangry" over nothing. Two year old tantrum angry. I need to keep bags of Snickers on on hand....

    Skipping 4 pages just to say it's really satisfying to be sitting in a restaurant and have your 12 year old look over at a couple of brats running around. 12 yo: "Man they are annoying." Dad: Now you know why you were never allowed to do that. 12 yo: Thank you so much for that.

    Was on vacation when my dear Danish were knocked out and couldn't remember my new user name to log in... On the upside, I was in Mexico, so I enjoyed heightened World Cup enthusiasm than we have in the States. On the downside, I also was in Mexico when Mexico was knocked out...

    Don’t pirate books, just don’t

    I'd love for there to be a system where you could get an ecopy of a book you already own, for a quarter the price or something. Or just include it with a new copy, kind of like how they include a digital download version of movies with a Blu-Ray/DVD to add to your electronic library.

    Ant-Man and the Wasp and the Spoilers

    Is it bad that I feel less interested in seeing this than I did Solo? I mean, I really liked the first Ant-man. Light. Fun. Maybe the biggest sign of superhero fatigue for me is that I'm in a spoiler thread posting about a movie I haven't seen and not really caring if I'm spoiled... Something that would shock my wife to no end. Or maybe after Avengers 4, I don't see how what could happen here that will really impact the MCU. Yes, I know Scott will learn something about the quantum realm that they'll leverage in someway. It's too bad for Rudd and Lilly that this outing is buried in such a crowded summer. I'll see AM&W at some point. Probably just wait to buy it.

    Yep. Ring theory is a fascinating read.

    This could be attributed to individual channels too. Last week, we had two version of the same World Cup game streaming through Hulu. I was watching the English broadcast on FOX in my office while my father in law was watching the Telemundo broadcast in the family room. Well, there was this awesome goal. I cheered ran to the other room to share in the play only to find them all just watching, waiting for something to happen. My first thought was that the goal was called back between me running through the kitchen. But no, the Spanish broadcast was just 1 minute or so behind FOX. Same game. Two channels. Same streaming platform.

    All things Star Wars

    Agreed on not understanding the D&D bashing. They've taken a huge incomplete opus and boiled it down to fit a new medium. TBH, I'm glad they came and did what they've done. I'd rather their version of the end of SoIaF over no end at all. And yes, that includes the writing. It's not Black Sails, Rome, Deadwood, etc quality dialog, but most tv isn't either. It's still fun television. Looking forward to their take on Star Wars.
