  1. Yeah, I understand that getting another one right away isn't for everyone. It worked for me, though. As for the boxer thing, no reason. I just really loved the first one and wanted another one. And she has turned out to be pretty much more of the same. She's got her own quirks and personality, but a lot of the same mannerisms. Based on my experience with the two boxers I've had, I think I'll always have a boxer. I broke up with an ex about two months before the previous boxer died and later found out that she got a boxer puppy after the break up because of how much she loved my dog. It seems that most people who have boxers stick with boxers, and I totally understand why. And it's not just that this is the only dog I've had. I also have a German shepherd that I got ten years ago and, while he's a great dog, never going to get another one. The shedding is a nightmare and his personality just pales in comparison to the two boxers. I don't know if I'll always have two dogs, but if I do, one will be a boxer and then I'll alternate between other breeds. I'd love to own a Rottweiler at some point.
  2. So, like, the biggest plot hole in the entire MCU is why Hulk opted to walk down a hundred flights of stairs instead of just jumping to the street, right?
  3. Sorry to hear that. I found out that my previous boxer had terminal bladder cancer at around the same age three years ago. Never easy. Hopefully you get a couple of months or longer to properly say goodbye. I got the current boxer a few weeks later. Grief sucks, and getting another one really helped me get over it in a way I don't think I would have otherwise.
  4. If we keep guessing that every time eventually we'll probably be right!
  5. I'd imagine this show is setting up how exactly the TVA fails. Evil Loki (I'm not convinced that it's actually him yet, as I called it the second the kid pointed to the stained glass figure with the Loki horns and that just seems too easy) appears to be collecting those reset devices. There has to be a reason.
  6. The Rock was the first R-rated movie I ever saw in the theater. I was 11 and my dad took me. Still one of my favorite action movies.
  7. I've seen three so far for the first two episodes and they were all very positive.
  8. I'm amazed they managed to make a halfway decent version of It on the big screen. The second half was a bit of a letdown but overall it was pretty solid. Not terribly scary and some questionable decisions, but they absolutely crushed the casting in both halves and I think that went a long way. I remember the television miniseries from when I was a kid and that was an absolute disaster.
  9. Took the pup to the nearby dog bar over the weekend. Needless to say, she had a good time. Then we went next door for snacks and wine and brought the dogs. The black and white one is the girlfriend's dog.
  10. I do think the move makes sense from a roster construction standpoint. Tennessee really only had one WR of consequence after Davis and Smith walked in free agency and essentially went unreplaced. There's a definite need for a WR across from AJ Brown.
  11. Again, totally agree that Deadwood is the better show. It's one of my top ten ever. Warrior is just a fun kung fu show. It's like Banshee. Sometimes, I'm in the mood for a great show. Sometimes, I'm in the mood for a trash show with great fight scenes.
  12. I think it's the closest comparison I can make. It's obviously not identical, but it has a lot of the same visual style to me, like the slow mo shots of guys walking in front of sparking furnaces and a similar setting/period.
  13. I think it depends what you're in the mood for. Deadwood is absolutely better than Warrior, but Warrior is a hell of a lot more fun than Deadwood. If I'm smoking a bowl and want to shut my brain off and watch some cool fight scenes, it's Warrior every time. If I want to watch a legitimate Western drama, obviously Deadwood is the way. I loved Warrior, by the way. It took a few episodes for it to really click for me, but I love a good martial arts film and Warrior scratches that itch admirably. It's basically kung fu Peaky Blinders. Strangely, though, the two best episodes in the series are when the characters leave San Francisco and the main plot behind and have a little stand-alone adventure. There's an episode like that in both of the first two seasons and they are both absolutely phenomenal.
