  1. Disney lays off infamous Marvel exec Ike Perlmutter Perlmutter is known for his frugality, conservative activism, and cut-throat corporate dealing https://www.polygon.com/23661825/marvel-disney-ike-perlmutter-layoff-fired-kevin-feige
  2. Josh Hawley called ‘fraud and coward’ over response to Nashville shooting Far-right Missouri senator accused of selectively invoking hate crime laws after characterizing shooting as attack on Christians https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2023/mar/29/josh-hawley-nashville-shooting-hate-crime
  3. I'd like to blame God for not protecting a Christian school. Also, "good guy with a gun" fails to show up. Bunch of slackers.
  4. Uh, read the story. I didn't create the title. I just posted because Manchin has drawn a decent opponent and may lose his seat.
  5. Justice for Manchin: Senate Republicans closing in on 2024 recruit If the popular governor jumps in, Republicans would break their losing streak in recruiting popular governors and reshape next year’s battleground map in one fell swoop. https://www.politico.com/news/2023/03/24/manchin-senate-republicans-2024-00088620
  6. That's crazy that Fox News had a factchecking operation. Their entire business became about lies and they chased off their few semi-serious journalists. And that operation's work now gets used against them in these lawsuits I guess maybe you can tell better lies if pros go over them? Did Goebbels have fact-checkers? Fox News v Dominion: $1.6bn defamation fight heads to court The voting machine company is suing the news channel over its disingenuous coverage of various outlandish election claims https://www.theguardian.com/media/2023/mar/21/fox-news-dominion-16bn-defamation-lawsuit-court
  7. I do want to see both Thunderbolts and Blade. But, I do agree with the overall point of too many Marvel movies. I think it's a combination of terrible scripts and making Marvel movies that don't matter to the overall saga. I'm really pissed about Ant Man 3 though because I felt tricked. I wouldn't have gone if they hadn't put Kang in there. The script sucked and was also deceptive. I skipped The Eternals, but at least they did me the favor of up front warning me it had little to do with anything and could be easily skipped.
  8. When Silicon Valley Libertarians Realized They Needed the Government, and Vice Versa Despite talk of a breakup, the collapse of tech’s favorite bank has brought them even closer together. https://www.politico.com/news/magazine/2023/03/18/d-c-silicon-valley-00087611

  12. Starfield Delayed Again, Launches in September The game is officially coming out this year. https://www.ign.com/articles/starfield-delayed-again-launches-in-september
  13. W wanted the political advantage. So that he could beat the Democrats and do things like destroy Social Security. And that's where the rubber hit the road on the issue with the right-wing crazies revolting. You don't remember what the Democrats position was because it wasn't polarized. It's like vaccines. Both parties were 100 percent behind vaccines in previous ages. And it was such a boring issue of utter agreement of course it never came up.
  14. That's the rumor I heard, yes. I guess we're about to find out. I will probably pick up that game if that's the case, but what I really am hoping for is more Shadowrun and Battletech games. I guess either way, if they got put on this game at least finishing it will free them up. I'm pretty interested in another Crusader Kings game, too.

  17. Yeah, what was he doing, trying to support Jeb Bush at the time? He seems to pick a lot of losers, he also supported Romney. Possibly two.

  20. It prequel series Welcome to Derry coming to HBO Max The show will "expand the It storytelling canvas and bring fans deeper into the terrifying, mesmerizing town of Derry." https://ew.com/tv/it-prequel-series-welcome-to-derry-hbo-max/
  21. The final season of Snowfall is off to an excellent start. It's gotten very dark even by this show's standards and the increased desparation of some of the major characters has really upped the stakes.
  22. Biden visits Kyiv ahead of anniversary of Russia’s invasion It was a landmark moment in his presidency, coming against the backdrop of the one year anniversary of the invasion. https://www.politico.com/news/2023/02/20/biden-ukraine-traveling-00083597
  23. Purchased a bundle of Atari 2600 games for my Xbox last year. That's the system I played as a young child and I love retro games. I thought it'd be great, but I only got a bit of fun out of them. They were finally too dated to play long. I ended up using the chess program mostly. I do sometimes play NES games and still enjoy those, however. I definitely fear the day they become too dated to enjoy.
  24. I believe Kang described time as a prison that could be broken out of in this movie.
