  1. Yeah I think Grisham really wanted HHS. The whole drama with her rejecting Interior and then it getting leaked by the Biden camp, and then the Hispanic caucus complaining about it, didn’t bode well for her.
  2. Yeah I just started watching Disney Gallery: Star Wars: The Mandalorian. Didn’t know such a thing existed until now. Filoni’s passion is clearly visible in the Ep titled Legacy.
  3. Just came across this video. Don’t care much for the youtuber but listen to what Filoni says... this guy should have spearheaded the sequels not fu#%^ing Kathleen Kennedy or JJ Abrams. Filoni understands Star Wars and Lucas’ story. I know a lot of people hate the prequels, but it worked for me cause SW, for me, was always about the Skywalker family and the prequels brought it full circle. It showed the rise of a young, basically good person who had everything but fails because of his insecurities and fear. The prequels are a Shakespearean tragedy but then it folds well into the OT which gives the viewer hope. Luke was always the perfect Jedi because he was not detached or emotionally deprived like the others. He cared deeply for his friends, his father and finally his love for his father and his selflessness saved his father. Yoda and Obi Wan in the OT wanted Luke to kill Anakin because they thought that was the only way. Luke, on the other hand, from the very beginning wanted to save him. He thought like Padme, who with her dying breath told Obi Wan “there is still good in him”. From a Luke who loves and cares so deeply that he won’t kill his father despite said father being a mass murderer, we go to a Luke in the sequels who attempts to kill his sister’s son (who he’s a teacher/ mentor to as well) for something he thinks his nephew will do in the future. Just sheer madness. Anyway, sorry to hijack the Mandalorian thread. Just came across Filoni’s view on SW and was so disappointed that Disney didn’t make use of him for the sequels.
  4. This is the whole point of Lucas film making that many (myself included) liked. He didn’t care to give much exposition, he gave some backstory but did not elaborate. And this is the reason you have a generation after the OT who were obsessed with the SW EU for decades. In the prequels, I feel, he gave TMI.
  5. Whether people hate or like the prequels (I’m in the latter camp), one has to admit that Lucas was original. One need not like the Anakin backstory and the politics of the prequels to see that Lucas was ambitious in his themes and character arcs. JJ Abrams OTOH is a hack. All he did was recycle the OT in TFA. As for the third movie, I don’t know what the hell he’s doing... it’s all over the place, no continuity in character storylines or any storyline, no logic, and everyone and their grandmother has immense power.
  6. Who told you this? Enough with the Kasdan glorifying.
  7. Most likely Michigan certification did it. Another story being reported in the Post is that business leaders (Partner for New York City) put pressure. In a call on Friday, some of them discussed withholding campaign contributions from Georgia’s two Republican Senate candidates to motivate the party to push for the transition. Now that might have stirred Mitch McConnell.
  8. So now you decide who has decency and who doesn’t. What a load of crap for a non offensive, innocuous comment. And I’m supposed to care how it rubs you?
  9. What in the hell are you talking about? What arrogance? The media reported he is the pick and I remarked he is the pick. No arrogance or whatever was intended. I’m sorry I offended your tender sensibilities by a harmless statement. Anyway, who made you the etiquette police?
  10. Well, I doubt the NYT and the Post would be reporting that he is expected to be the pick if that’s not what their sources were telling them. It’s highly unlikely after their headline news stories that he’s not. Here’s the quote from the Post regarding their sources confirming it “Blinken’s appointment, first reported Sunday night by Bloomberg News, was confirmed by three people familiar with an announcement scheduled for Tuesday.” As to the bolded, there’s no need to be snarky.
  11. Tony Blinken is the pick for Secretary of State.
  12. The problem is that now that almost half the country has given tacit consent to Trump’s madness and criminality by voting for him, the spineless republicans have little to no incentive to go against the Trump crime family. Don Jr and his crazy girlfriend are engineering a full take over of the RNC.
  13. Agree with the above... just thought preliminary numbers from the article was interesting.
  14. Yeah it boggles the mind when people who are depended on ACA vote for the man who is trying to dismantle it.
