Monday Overnight Open Thread (5/22/17) Monday All Day Edition

(Tranquil, isn't it?)

Quotes of The Day


Quote I

In the United States of America, satire is protected speech, even if the object of the satire doesn’t get it. U.S Senator Al Franken (D-MN)

Even a broken clock is right twice a day.


Quote II

I would remind you that extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice! And let me remind you also that moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue! Senator Barry Goldwater (R-AZ)

Today's GOP should take heed.


Quote III


Faced with problems and disappointments, many people will try to escape from their responsibility: escape in selfishness, escape in sexual pleasure, escape in drugs, escape in violence, escape in indifference and cynical attitudes. But today, I propose to you the option of love, which is the opposite of escape. Pope John Paul II

ABC's loss may be another network's gain. Last Man Standing may get new home.

Variety reports 21st Century Fox will seek a new home for the comedy series after ABC cancelled it, despite it being their second most-watched comedy, behind only “Modern Family.”
Studio 20th Century Fox Television is looking for a new home for canceled Tim Allen comedy “Last Man Standing.”

*****


Cigarette advertising = BAD. Face Book data mining = GOOD.

But earlier this month, The Australian uncovered something that felt like a breach in the social contract: a leaked confidential document prepared by Facebook that revealed the company had offered advertisers the opportunity to target 6.4 million younger users, some only 14 years old, during moments of psychological vulnerability, such as when they felt “worthless,” “insecure,” “stressed,” “defeated,” “anxious,” and like a “failure.”

You can't argue about climate change. Climate change settled science! And you'll be forced to accept it.

In addition to this, a London School of Economics (LSE) study has found that 1200 laws designed to decrease the pace of climate change have been adopted in 164 countries — these include 47 implemented by the Paris Agreement. Patricia Espinosa optimistically stated at an international meeting on climate change in Bonn, Germany that now “most countries have a legal basis on which future action can be built.”


*****


It's never been an easy job. And it isn't getting any easier.

According to the Little Rock Police Department, active aggression against its officers is up 134 percent from 2015 to 2016.
That oftentimes forces officers to respond.
“I like working the streets,” said Officer Stephen Gorbet. “You get to see all walks of life… there’s no such thing as a routine stop.”


*****

Keri Smith, feminist and co-founder of Whitesmith Entertainment Inc., leaves the SJW Cult.

Social justice advocates show a religious-like intolerance for those with whom they disagree, which sometimes manifests itself in unbridled bouts of emotion:
“I see increasing numbers of so-called liberals cheering censorship and defending violence as a response to speech. I see seemingly reasonable people wishing death on others and laughing at escalating suicide and addiction rates of the white working class. I see liberal think pieces written in opposition to expressing empathy or civility in interactions with those with whom we disagree. I see 63 million Trump voters written off as “nazis” who are okay to target with physical violence. I see concepts like equality and justice being used as a mask for resentful, murderous rage.”

*****


In a former life, a long, long time ago your humble Cob would go on dates. Some good, some bad. Never bad enough where I wanted to sue my date for the cost of it.

“It was kind of a first date from hell,” said 37-year-old Brandon Vezmar, explaining why he sued his date to recover the cost of their brief non-romance in May. The Austin American-Statesman reports today that Vezmar sued the woman last week in small-claims court in Travis County, Texas, seeking to get back the $17.31 he allegedly paid for her ticket to “Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2.”

The ONT Musical Interlude

May 22, 1958, Jerry Lee Lewis arrived at London's Heathrow Airport to begin his first British tour, along with his new bride, 14 year old third cousin, Myra. Although advised not to mention it, Lewis answered all questions about his private life. The public's shock over Lewis' marriage marks the start of a controversy leading to his British tour being cancelled after just 3 of the scheduled 37 performances. via thisdayinmusic.com

1968, Gary Puckett and the Union Gap were at No.1 on the UK singles chart with 'Young Girl.' The song which was about under-age sex, was the acts only UK No.1.via thisdayinmusic.com

Did you have a good dinner tonight? Didn't have desert? You can make caramel.

First, you’ll need a half cup of the following: corn syrup, melted butter, condensed milk, white crystal sugar and brown sugar. Then, get yourself a quarter teaspoon of salt, as well. Put all of these ingredients into a large mixing bowl.

*****


Every job has its drawback. Some drawbacks are bigger and more tragic than others.

According to a report from South African news outlet News24, a 51-year-old professional big game hunter met his demise on Friday when he was crushed by an elephant. And hey, I’m sure the possibility of that happening is what made his game so “fun.”

Does your birth year remind you of a movie. It should Oscar winning movies and your birth year.

Which movie you'll cling to depends on your metrics. "Biggest" could mean the blockbuster that topped the box office during the year you were born. Or maybe "biggest" has cultural value -- prestige doesn't get much bigger than winning Best Picture at the Academy Awards. Or maybe you're a little more thoughtful and need a recommendation. We've got you covered in all three departments. Whether you're 10 or 100 -- seriously, we're not ageist -- everyone deserves a movie they can stream on a whim and call their own. Here are yours (and your friends', and your parents', and your grandparents', and... ):

Ransomware. Inside the digital heist. For a world wide heist it didn't take much in.

Robert Gren had 26 minutes left to decide whether to pay the ransom. It was Monday, May 15, three days after the global cyberattack now known as WannaCry had begun, and a clock on Gren’s computer screen was counting down.
Above the clock, there was a warning: “Payment will be raised on 5/15/2017 21:13:40.”

19 The Sin of Animus

It has been previously pointed out that if one has "animus" within their soul, everything they say to do is necessarily illegitimate and effectively sinful. This has been unabashedly used to delegitimize anything and everything President Trump has done, is trying to do, may do in the future, most notably with his travel ban executive orders.

35 Information that you can use:
Some kid did a science fair project on the 30 second rule about eating food that had fallen on the floor. The results of his project showed that 30 seconds was too little time for the food to be contimated in any way. So floor food is fair game.

36 Baby Sister Update

Joyce was admitted to the hospital today; she has blood clots in her legs and needs to be anticoagulated. Not sure how long she will be in but at least a day or two. Avastin was canceled but will likely be re-scheduled.

The clots are not atypical side-effects of the Avastin.

Please pray that she may quickly resume a path to strength and healing.

[To my fellow, beloved Hordelings, thank you all in advance for your prayers and well-wishes for my sister and our family.]

46 1969

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. Meh. Not a Bobby Redford fan (Jeremiah Johnson was great though). Paul Newman was awesome!

Midnight Cowboy. Never seen it.

I agree with the author's blurb. The Wild Bunch was the best movie of 1969.

Looks like Nashville is going to the Stanley Cup. 3-1, Preds, 3rd period. Hopefully the Pens can clinch the East tomorrow night!

How did he conduct his experiment? Did he swab the floor for bacteria first as well as the food? Did he confirm that there was bacteria on the floor before dropping the food? And then check the food after contact.

Also the 30 second rule doesn't mean dick when there's dog hair on every floor surface.

The Austin American-Statesman reports today that Vezmar sued the woman last week in small-claims court in Travis County, Texas, seeking to get back the $17.31 he allegedly paid for her ticket to "Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2."

I was surprised the first time I saw Fred McMurray play a bad guy. He does it so well.

I've read that in real life he was even more squeaky clean than his character was in My Three Sons. He was an expert shooter as well
Posted by: Michael the Texan (formerly TEXIT) at May 22, 2017 10:30 PM (nvMvs)


Yeah, I remember him in "My Three Sons", and he also played Eddie Rickenbacker in a WWII movie. I only learned recently that he also played villains.

202 Fred MacMurray was interesting.

He was *so* in love with golf that when he started doing My Three Sons, he insisted the producers shoot all of his scenes in two several-week periods, I think one in early summer and one in late fall, and he would literally spend the rest of the year visiting courses everywhere.

The rest of the cast didn't have a problem with it... except for William Frawley, who was still royally pissed that Vivian Vance torpedoed Desilu's Fred-and-Ethel spinoff because they didn't like each other. He said the out-of-order tapings always left him horribly confused about whatever was going on in each episode.

------------------

Saw a headline somewhere the other day mentioning that the new movie (which I have no interest in seeing) retcons out the existence of the xenomorph queen. If so, I get the impression that Scott has decided he's going to "reclaim" the franchise from those who came later. That's not necessarily a problem with the third and fourth movies (or the AvP movies).

But people probably aren't going to be too happy if he's decided to try and get rid of the second movie.

And we paid the city over $800 to connect, but they can't tell us where. Cokesuckers.

Inspired by our resident highbrow movie philosopher, I spent $22 on the Criterion Blu Ray of Chimes at Midnight, heedless of my previous failed attempts to "get" Shakespeare. I am out to acquire some culture, dammit!

Now I just have to make myself watch the darned thing. I admit that part of my argument for buying it was "these Criterion things become unavailable, and if I never open it, it will probably be worth $50 in a few years."

273 Michael, fair points. It's not that there's nothing heavy in NXNW, it's that the overall outlook on life, the universe and everything is so much brighter, than in Vertigo.

Vertigo basically says, people go through life making all the same stupid mistakes over and over and over again and are pretty much doomed to that forever. NXNW says the usual Hollywood thing, that we all can overcome (which I admit I also would prefer to believe).

yeah McMurray plays evil characters surprisingly well. you should watch the lost My Three Sons shows, there are only five of them. They explain how Fred came to be a lonely father of three and how "uncle" charlie was coerced into being the housekeeper. very disturbing. there are a couple of scenes that may explain ernie's later drug addiction. He plays evil really well. Some of it was source material, though greatly toned down, for Blue Velvet.

321 @292 Thanks. I knew they were involved somehow. You know anything about the Merkava ? How does it rank?
-----------------

Couldn't tell you. I don't have enough info on it.

The problem with trying to evaluate the Merkava in comparison with other tanks is that it hasn't really done much head to head stuff, and it's designed for Israel's battles which are somewhat different than what other parts of the world expect to deal with. So it's difficult to guess how a battalion of them would do if they had to fight in Central Europe.

As for the Armata, which was mentioned above, the problem is figuring out how much is real and how much is Potemkin Combat System by the Russians. We won't know until some of them see actual combat.

On another note, a few months ago I saw a comment asserting that the US is moving toward a "use drones to spot the enemy at extreme range, and then pick them off with our magnificent main gun" role for the M1A3.

334 M1A2 uses the smooth-bore Rheinmetall 120 mm gun, licenses built (designed by the Germans and used on the Leopard II).

The Brits us a rifled 120 mm gun.

There was a shoot-off with both guns by the US Army, and they selected the 120 mm smooth bore. The Brits were really PO'd , from what I heard.

During Desert Storm, they were getting kinetic tank kills at up to 5000 meters with the 120 mm rifled tank gun.

I think the maximum expectation with the 120 mm smoothbore gun is a little more than 3000 meters.

340 @320 The world's best armies have to at least build these fantasy weapons, if only as experiments... Whether or not they can be deployed in great numbers in peace time is irrelevant -- the day will come when what they cost will become irrelevant! The magnificent F-22 is in this category.

Plus, with tanks you might be able to convince someone to buy the thing and help recover costs on it. The Russians have been living off of reworked T-72s (T-90) and T-64s (T-80) for decades now. They need something new and sexy to get people buying.

She sleeps for hours each day, isn't interested in eating, and can't understand why we want to figure out what's wrong with her. She's just ready to go.

Maybe. I suspect it was written that way for a good reason story wise. It had to end that way. It's not like a hell of a lot actually happens, other than Nicholson's character getting taken out, which leads finally to the other two. Without that sudden ending, where would the story finish? It would just peter out, with no real conclusion. It was already an ambling plot of randomness, really. A random heavy finish was needed. If not, they would just ride into the sunset, or lay on a beach somewhere and fail as a story. It was inevitable.

Okay, here's the thing. My car dude (totally reliable) told me that Subarus have a timing belt and you have to pull the entire engine to change it out, around 60,000 miles. I don't know if this is still true, or if they all have that. But it's about $2000 to do. It was enough to put me right off and, yes, some of their cars seem pretty nice.

Posted by: qdpsteve at May 22, 2017 11:10 PM (eMKNe)


So, two years ago I walked into the Subaru dealership to pay cash money for a Subaru Impreza. I stood around for about 30 minutes. Not one person gave me the time of day.

I walked out, drove 1/2 mile to a Hyundai dealership and bought an Elantra GT fully loaded. It's a great car, and I don't have to replace all four tires if one goes, as you have to with any Subaru.

I've owned both. I would buy an older BMW (in good shape) in a minute. I love driving the Audi, but would never buy another one again.

The older BMW's are great fun to drive and you can do a lot of work yourself, but scary in winter (snow), unless you have an AWD version (which used to be really rare). The X-drive (AWD) is more common now in the later models.

I was looking at a late model used Z4 last summer, and it was over $40 grand. Are you kidding me?

500 No, you don't have to pull the engine to change the timing belt, at least not on any that I have owned. I've had a 2wd hatchback bought new in the late 80's, an Impreza wagon, and 4 different Foresters. No, I'm not a lesbo, I just like Subaru's all wheel drive because I drive on slick roads a lot and like the durable boxer engine design that they use.

You will need to have the timing belt changed out every 75,000 miles, at around $600-700 cost. Stay away from the turbo models as they tend to blow up early. You will be underwhelmed with the acceleration. They handle well though, and will last a long time. Good in crashes too, don't ask me how I know.

Had that happen to me once, as a passenger in a Cessna 185 Skywagon. Canoe lashed to the float, we took off from Back Bay at Yellowknife, NWT, with the intent of flying me out to some nameless lake to try to find some mineral showings from an old prospector's field notes. My work partner was stuck in town for some reason, so it was just me and the pilot.

Pilot said to me, "We just put a rebuilt engine in this plane, so it's good to go." Taxi and takeoff was normal, but when he throttled back after the climb out, the engine began missing badly, and streams of fuel vapor came rushing past the windscreen.

We had enough altitude, so pilot (who was cool as a cucumber) made a 180, and then a dead-stick landing about 2 miles up the bay from the float base. We sat on the dead-calm water, with the doors open, and let the faint breeze push us down the lake towards the dock. Meanwhile, they sent a boat out to tow us back to the dock. Mechanic met us at the dock, tightened the flare nuts on the fuel injectors, and off we went again, problem fixed.

567 Here's what the April 2017 Consumer Reports has to say about the Veloster. It's considered one of their 'recommended' cars.

"The sporty Veloster hatchback has three doors, with the right side rear door providing access to the tight rear seat. Based on the small Accent, the Veloster's 138-hp, 1.6-liter four-cylinder delivers adequate power, and the precise six-speed manual has low-effort throws. A dual-clutch, six-speed automated manual is optional. We got 31 mpg overall from a version with the manual transmission. Moving up to the Turbo trim gets you a strong 201-hp turbocharged four-cylinder and an available seven-speed automated manual transmission. Handling is responsive and secure. Though the ride is quite stiff, it isn't punishing. Rear visibility through the split back window is decent at best."

574 Ed Driscoll: "When Booth shot Lincoln, everybody knew that Booth was a southern partisan, and they could easily understand why he wanted to kill Lincoln," Piereson says. "Northerners blamed the south for this, and you assimilate it into the moral framework of the Civil War."

In contrast, "Liberals had great difficulty assimilating this idea that a communist would kill Kennedy. It made sense to them that an anti-civil rights person might do it, or an anti-communist might do it, but not a communist."

But that's exactly who Oswald was, having defected to the Soviet Union in 1959 and then spending two and a half years there, and attempting to denounce his American citizenship along the way. Piereson says that his April 1963 attempt to kill Edwin Walker, former army general, anti-civil rights leader, and head of the John Birch Society in Texas says much about Oswald as well. In addition to his anti-civil rights action, Walker also gave frequent speeches calling for the overthrow of Castro. Piereson believes that Oswald's attempt to kill Walker sheds light on why he killed Kennedy: his policies towards Cuba and his leading the nation's other Cold War actions of the time.

"However, that is not how the Kennedy assassination was interpreted," Piereson says, with enormous understatement. Instead, a sense of collective guilt is imposed on the nation through its liberal elites and media. "And this is really the first time that you get on the liberal-left this idea that America is guilty. But this however now becomes a metaphor for the left for everything that happens moving on in the 1960s."

"So how do you get, really, from this place in 1963, where Kennedy is shot by a communist, to '68 where communists like Castro are heroes to the left?"

Piereson believes this could have only happened due to the cultural disorientation caused by the airbrushing of Kennedy's assassination and the attempt to "view it as a civil rights event, instead of a Cold War event."

The conspiracy theories were also fueled by propaganda generated by the Soviet Union and Cuba, Piereson adds. The Soviet Union itself "was very quickly out of the box on November 23, 1963.

Watching Kennedy on FBN, she did a bit about a story from Pippa's wedding. With her, it's hard to tell what's she's making up and what really happened, but this did.

At Pippa's wedding, the best man got up there and made one rude, crude, and lewd speech. He got in a reference to Pippa's butt, then did a bit about the groom's loyal companion, best friend, etc. But enough about his dog, let's talk about his bride.....

Then he did this gem: They're supposed to go to [whereever] on their honeymoon, but he told he was going to Bangor for two weeks. Get it, "bang 'er"?

588 Here's what the April 2017 Consumer Reports has to say about the Veloster. It's considered one of their 'recommended' cars.

"The sporty Veloster hatchback has three doors, with the right side rear door providing access to the tight rear seat. Based on the small Accent, the Veloster's 138-hp, 1.6-liter four-cylinder delivers adequate power, and the precise six-speed manual has low-effort throws. A dual-clutch, six-speed automated manual is optional. We got 31 mpg overall from a version with the manual transmission. Moving up to the Turbo trim gets you a strong 201-hp turbocharged four-cylinder and an available seven-speed automated manual transmission. Handling is responsive and secure. Though the ride is quite stiff, it isn't punishing. Rear visibility through the split back window is decent at best."

There is some non-rinse shampoo for invalids. You can massage it into their hair, but you don't have to rinse it out. At some pharmacies there are really large wipes that can be used if you can't get her to shower.

One of the advantages of Hospice is they will help with cleanliness. Also, there are elder services that you can pay to come in. They charge about $20 an hour in my area. You can talk to them about what kind of help you need.

This is true, but it goes a bit further.

The left believes reality is malleable. Good thoughts produce good outcomes, bad thoughts produce bad outcomes.

So why did Obamacare fail? Or the Great Society? Or any leftwing failure you can remember? Because too many people thought it would fail. If they just thought good thoughts it would have worked.

From the leftwing perspective then, by merely existing, conservatives are stopping utopia from coming to be. How then do you solve that problem? The answer isn't debate hell more people might hear conservative thoughts and make things even worse! The only answer is to remove the bad thinkers...by whatever means necessary.

well, more likely it was not simply a flat but one of the tires was not repairable, gash in the sidewall.

Cars with awd have to have tires with similar diameters. Audis are among the worst for tight tolerances. If you have a fair amount of wear on your tires and try to put one new tire on with three worn tires it is going to put a lot of stress on your differential and repairing or replacing that is going to be a lot more expensive than the tires.

Moving up to the Turbo trim gets you a strong 201-hp turbocharged four-cylinder and an available seven-speed automated manual transmission.

I haven't had a stick in a long time but when in the hell did they start bringing out six and seven speeds?

Is this going to be like bicycles? When I was a kid you had your basic three speed and ten-speed ... and then, at some point, they started having 15 and 21 and whatever speeds (as if anyone would actually need something like that).

Over the last 8 years the Middle East has become more and more a conflict between Iran and the Sunni Gulf States.

Obama inflamed things by giving Iran billions of dollars and carte blanche to do what they wanted while at the same time creating ISIS.

We've seen under Obama's watch that the Sunni states have been supportive of ISIS (though not publicly) as a way to push back on Iran, or at least keep them busy.

Selling weapons to the Gulf States, and withdrawing our support for Iran might work, if at the same time Trump is privately demanding an end of support for ISIS.

626 The AWD/Tire replacement thing is because *some* AWD systems need for all the tires to have the same outside diameter.

Far and away the easiest way to do that is replace all four at once, but it's not the only way.

Not all systems require this, sometimes a manufacturer (Volvo) will have both kinds.

Unless you get a *lot* of flats, this usually isn't that often, but it's a consideration when you buy a car (or tow one).

Often this is just one of many factors in expenses and reliability in a car, and they chose the system for reasons (weight, patents, torque rating) unrelated to this limitation.

It is any car with awd. Audis have to have their tires within something like 4/32 of each other. Ford's are something like 8/32nds.

That is always ugly the first time it happens. you could buy one new tire and have it shaved down but it is hard to find someone to shave tires anymore.

660 I haven't had a stick in a long time but when in the hell did they start bringing out six and seven speeds?

Is this going to be like bicycles? When I was a kid you had your basic three speed and ten-speed ... and then, at some point, they started having 15 and 21 and whatever speeds (as if anyone would actually need something like that).

I mean, aren't the 5 blade razors stupid enough to satisfy whatever that silly urge is?

Posted by: yankeefifth at May 22, 2017 11:25 PM (cPsPa)

I briefly owned an Audi Fox station wagon, circa 1976. Got it from an ex-roommate who was a huge guy, ran about 300 pounds, and no fat on him at all. Looked like Don Leo Jonathan, he did. The springs on the poor car were all sagged, can't imagine why. I fixed it up, and drove it for a month or two, and traded it off to a pair of lesbian women, who just loved the hell out of it.

I will say, it put a big grin on my face when I pitched it into a corner. A driver's car, to be sure. As long as you don't mind electrical glitches and door handles falling off.

683 I didn't have a chance to 2cents the SV thread earlier, so I thought I would do it here.

But thanks to my fat fingers and inattentiveness my "brilliant" and lengthy commentary has disappeared. Probably for the best. Here's another most likely lengthy.

I worked in SV throughout the 80s. I was in a position to meet many of the established and new entrepreneurs and the founders of the service and support companies that grew up with them like the Wilson Sonsinis, and Silicon Valleys etc. My interaction was with the "community" and not limited to the confines of one company or culture. It was an exciting time.

Anyway, one thing that has always stuck with me. I met with Steve Jobs a short time before Apple went public. We discussed a possible lobbying organization for entrepreneurs (an idea before it's time) and Steve very dismissively said -- He was busy building a company. He could care less about the government. What did the government have to do with it anyway.

It was a time that the government and the entrepreneur largely saw themselves as separate. Of course, there were associations like AEA etc. but not what is today.

When I look at the entangled sick relationship between SV and WDC today those words are always there. Especially when I look at the horrid horrid Zuckerberg thing who rides on the wings of Soros.

I have had the good fortune to work with powerful and good people in WDC and powerful and good people in SV. And I have seen the powerful, monied and not so good along the way. When you peak with money you want power. When you peak with power you want money. Always has been that way it seems.

I wouldn't give you two cents for the millenial Zuckerberg/Soros SV. It is as much a swamp as WDC. Their leftist, liberal thinking is not thinking at all. I don't think it is a preference for socialism over capitalism. It is knee jerk to people like Soros and the globalists. Zuckerberg and the zuckerbergers are sheeples, water carriers, and providers of funds.

This is not to discount the good and talented people. But the trend is not optimistic.

Get a real Mini Cooper, the one made by British Leyland Motor Company, with no BMW parts in it. Back in the day, 1967, they would get the drop on a Z-28 Camaro in the stoplight drags. Of course, once the Camaro hooked up, it would blow the doors off the poor little Mini, but it sure as hell couldn't corner with one.

706 I think that movie list, focused on the year you were born, is taking the wrong approach. It should be the year you first become self aware enough to understand movies. Somewhere around 6-7-8 or so.

So what was the first movie you remember as a kid, one that your parents took you to see?

"Gone with the wind." I didn't get much out of it except the burning of the house, still remember that.

"The Wizard of Oz" - hated it. Scary movie, and I've never liked scary movies. The flying monkeys were going to get Dorthy. Couldn't watch.

In Manchester, UK, 20 Dead, "Hundreds" Injured After Two Bangs Go Off After Ariana Grande Concert

NBCNews, which still caveats that this could be "bangs" or something (which now seems very unlikely), claims to have confirmed 20 are dead and "hundreds" are injured.

Although there was some early speculation that this might not have been an explosion -- it could have been a balloon that popped and caused a panic stampede, in which people were trampled -- it's looking more and more like a bomb detonated with terrorist intent.

"US Intel" sources have confirmed an "explosion" of some kind.

Incidentally, there was a major terror alert at an airport in Goteborg, Sweden (also called Goetheburg), after explosive traces were detected in luggage left behind at the departure lounge.

The good news is that these appear to just be traces, and not an explosive device.

A bit of unconfirmed news -- this tweet claims the explosive detected is specifically pentrite.

Pentrite is a key component in Semtex, and it's also frequently used in terrorist bombings -- skip down to "Terrorist Use."

But it's also sometimes used as the primer charge in small-caliber ammunition, so I guess it's possible the bag could have just carrying ammo at some point.

Of course, the proper default thanks to zomg diversity is now terrorism.

Which is what I think until proven otherwise.

20 Wild speculation on my part, but I wouldn't be surprised if one or more of the fatalities were caused by trampling as the crowd panicked.

24 As we were discussing in the last thread, another possibility is a pyrotechnics mishap. JackStraw mentioned the nightclub fire in RI in 2003 which killed 100 people. That was started by the band's pyrotechnics. Some were killed by the smoke and fire, and some by the stampede.

133 So, this is my wheelhouse. I work in concert production and have worked with concert special effects people.

1. There are balloon drops all the time at pop concerts. They are NOT filled with a gas.
2. A popped balloon would not cause hysteria
3. There are pink balloons in the video, yet the article refers to "massive balloons" That's uncommon.
4. It would not be hard to smuggle in explosive materials. The people who use special effects use them during shows regularly. I am NOT suggesting they are behind this; I'm just suggesting that kind of material is somewhat common on shows.
5. Bomb dogs don't show up until later in the afternoon; not sure if they do a sweep of the ceiling.
6. Not all venues are secure. Even if the doors to the catwalk are triggered via an ID card or a code, that doesn't mean a door wasn't propped open.
7. There is a video at ABC news that has video but primarily audio of the explosion.

Ariana Grande was here a few months ago. My story:

So, I'm in the seats stage right, I think in the third row. Obstructed view. I'm waiting for the show to start before I have to get back to work.

Behind me is screaming. Horrible, horrible screaming. Make your molars hurt screaming. It goes on forever.

Finally, after about 3 minutes into the show (pre show was ten minutes) I can't stand it any more and leave. I turn around, waiting to see two or three 11 year old girls.

It is a college age girl and guy wearing matching pink sweatshirts and kitty cat ears screaming like they never hit puberty.

Security varies wildly. In the arenas in the US, you have to go through a metal detector. But maybe that's not the procedure in the UK.

My guess is it's an inside job.

A "friend" works in the arena. Maybe in housekeeping or catering or food services. During the day, they leave an unobtrusive door propped open.

The terrorist friend sneaks in, and gets into the catwalk, which may or may not be secure. Does what he needs to do and wait.

This isn't brain surgery. Venues are not secure during the day. Security steps up at about 5pm, before the artist arrives. Bomb dog only goes through backstage/stage area.

Not hard.

For the record, the majority of practicing Muslims believe you should be executed under Sharia law for not accepting Allah as your god:

"Nevertheless, in six of the 20 countries where there are adequate
samples for analysis, at least half of those who favor making Islamic
law the official law also support executing apostates."

http://www.pewforum.org/2013/04/30/the-worlds-muslims-religion-politics-society-beliefs-about-sharia/

"At least half" means it starts at 50% and goes up. Meaning that, when explosions kill little girls, it's generally safe to assume this is Teh Muslims.

628 NBCNews, which still caveats that this could be "bangs" or something (which now seems very unlikely), claims to have confirmed 20 are dead and "hundreds" are injured.

Although there was some early speculation that this might not have been an explosion -- it could have been a balloon that popped and caused a panic stampede, in which people were trampled -- it's looking more and more like a bomb detonated with terrorist intent.

I'm sure someone already has.

And she is of an age, and a level of fame, where everything she has said and done, from when she was in her late teens, will be preserved forever.

I'm sure glad there wasn't this level of scrutiny when I was her age. I sure said some dumb things back then too.

It is not just a dumb comment regardless of context. She is a celebrity stating bigotry ... for a whole nation. The immediate context may have been fat Americans ... but the "hate America" thing over there goes much deeper, as I see it.

No, it is not a "grand political comment", it is just general hate, like much of the left has. They are stupid and hateful, led by their political cult leaders like the stupid leftists in America.

Ariana Grande revealed that she left the Roman Catholic church
and is transitioning into Kabbalah: "I was born Roman Catholic but I
lost faith when the Pope decided to tell me everything I loved and
believed in was wrong.

[The church] said Spongebob Squarepants is gay and he's a sinner and
he should burn in hell. And Harry Potter was a sin. And working women. I
was like 'Enough! First the gays, then Spongebob and now Harry Potter?
Get out my house!' I was not having it. And the working woman thing? It
was a moment for me. I needed something else to believe in."



Can't argue with that logic.

I had vestibular neuritis for almost two years. Severe vertigo for about 18 months, then not so severe for a few months, then I had to learn to walk all over again.

I still have moments where I wobble, or feel like I"m hanging upside down, or leaning way over in one direction.

The current theory is that it's a form of the herpes virus, like shingles/chickenpox, that flares on the vestibular nerve.

I've had something like that. Calcium deposit in the parotid gland. Ear aches, infections all the time. Doc was going to take it out, o'course one slip and one loses muscle control of that cheek and lip.

I started pouring white vinegar in my ear, the old clean the coffee pot trick, that was six years ago.
I still must do that but I have had no infections since then.

My primary says I have the cleanest ears he's ever seen.

Or, conversely, blame PDT's speech and make sure the President doesn't speechy again. Because speech kills. Maybe if we all just take a vow of silence, they will stop killing people.

Ramadan is Friday, and this is unfortunately and probably just the beginning.

It may have been mentioned upthread, but Manchester, part of The Midlands, has the highest concentration of moose limbs in the UK.

There was a report recently that this area is more volatile for potential danger than Molenbeek in Brussels. No-go zones. Streets where unemployed barbarians lurk and don't allow females into cafes. They harass any female walking down the street.

Sorrow for those injured, for those just now awakening to the dangers of unvetted refugees and allowing second generations to "worship" in radical mosques.

The cameras caught whoever was the suicide bomber. I am assuming they are not blond or Viking.

Meanwhile, France and Germany are welcoming them and forming the EU Army.

God help the UK and Europe.

Occupy Silicon Valley? Tech Magnates Fear Next Campaign in Socialist War Might Target Them

And they've spent so many years courting them, promoting them, and even paying them a lot of money to act as "consultants" for their social media platforms -- what a shame if the alligator next turns to eat them.

It will be funny if that happens, because they'll try to rally public support -- from conservatives, the only people who would conceivably defend them -- and we'll be sitting here remembering their years and years of directing the left's terrorism against us.

Kind of like the Saudi princes pouring money to spread Wahabism -- direct the terrorism towards some convenient scapegoat, other than yourself.

So yeah, don't bother, Silicon Valley. If they come after you, you're on your own.

Tech stocks have surged, and Bank of America says it could lead to talk of wealth redistribution


Standout gains in large technology stocks like Amazon.com and Apple show just how much the sector is disconnected from the sluggish growth on the rest of Main Street, one notable strategist said in a report titled "Occupy Silicon Valley."

The tech stock rally "could ultimately lead to populist calls for redistribution of the increasingly concentrated wealth of Silicon Valley," Bank of America Merrill Lynch's chief investment strategist, Michael Hartnett, said in a report released Monday.

Give the Social Justice Warriors space to destroy, I always say.

5 I still can't believe he's here, in the White House. There, the disgusting clown standing on the same carpet on which walked so many truly good and honest people, paragons of integrity, like Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama and Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch and Susan Rice and Ben Rhodes.

Well anyway there's no way the president can see me. Except for my face! My face was not covered with matching blue cloth!

But then again, I am very tall. What if I stand on my tiptoes, perhaps my face would be mistaken for a bas-relief carving in the crown molding?

On the other hand, just by moving up to my tiptoes the movement might be noticed.

But suddenly, before I could resolve upon a tactic, the president called out to me: "Jim, come over here!"

How embarrassing! Here I am, the master FBI agent in deep cover of drapery, and my cover so easily blown!

Was the statement just uttered by the president an order or merely a suggestion, I wondered?

Would I be jeopardizing the independence of the FBI from the president if I complied?

The FBI had worked hard to separate ourselves from the executive branch and if we can successfully achieve the next phase of our strategy, self-funding, we will be able to achieve independence from the legislative branch as well. What kind of precedent would I be setting for future directors, if I so easily caved in to such a presidential directive?

"Comey! What the hell are you doing! Get over here!"

Well that was clearly an order.

I walked over and the president grabbed me by the elbow and pulled me forward. "Thanks for coming, Jim, and I appreciate all the great work you and your wonderful agents do," he said into my ear.

Or did he? Perhaps what he really said was, "Thanks for covering up for me, Jim, and I would appreciate it if you and your agents obstruct justice for me in my conspiracy with the Russian government." Damn, I wish I had worn a wire, just like McCabe suggested.

But wait, I thought, perhaps there was another tack here. I never consented to his grabbing me and pulling me forward like that. Was I just assaulted by the president of the United States?

But I would need evidence for such an explosive charge. I made a mental note to to check my arm later for bruises.

87 I recently had a conversation with my sister in law whose friend's daughter lived in San Francisco. White, middle class liberals are dispossessing poor people in Oakland as we speak.

Rent in San Francisco has become so high that a couple with a middle class income can't afford a crappy apartment without taking on roommates. So in order to have their own apartment they move to Oakland, causing housing costs there to go up for the low income minorities that have been living there.

When are black voters going to wise up to the fact that white liberals really don't give a shit about them.

I was chatting with my daughter last night, the one who went to UT Austin, and she said that the east side, in particular the Cesar Chavez portion, where nobody went voluntarily in her day (7 years ago), is now gentrified. It's the same everywhere. I think of it as appropriating the ghetto, without, you know, the ghetto culture.

This has actually been happening for a long time in the Valley, it just seems to be getting more play now that it's hitting San Francisco.

When I was working for Valley based companies, remotely, never at HQ cause California, there were many, many employees who had well over an hour and sometimes two hour commutes just so they could find affordable housing. This goes back over a decade so I was just a teenager then. Prodigy really.

Pretty much. I read an interesting piece not to long ago about Musk and the pseudo monopoly he is in with NASA. I think Lockheed is the only other company with the ability to bid on a lot of these rocket launch contracts. And Musk got both federal and state money and services to build his facilities and companies.

I give the guy a lot of credit for seeing opportunities and going after them but I doubt he would be nearly as successful without government cheese on many fronts.

The key word in your first sentence is matching. I've done a number of VC funded startups and if you want to see a lot of sharks start drooling start mentioning matching government funds. It isn't so much the funds as the implicit message that the government will be using the products or services. That's gold, Jerry.

And that doesn't include things like big infrastructure that Musk got from states like Texas to build his launch facility.

Again, I have no doubt he's talented and has some cracker jack engineers but the world is full of smart, talented people who have great ideas that never, ahem, get off the ground because of money. The real power in SV isn't with guys Gates, it's the money guys.

I also have no doubt they benefit from big government.
And yet they built wealth through the free market. It still puzzles me they would deny others the same opportunity.
The other thing that puzzles is this--the tech revolution seems, to this little grey duck at least, to be fundamentally libertarian. It seems to me that the Whole Earth Catalogue was libertarian, even if it was based in acid.

Why the average software developer goes along with it isn't as clear, but it seems to be because they admire the tech leaders, way, way too much.

Someone like a Bezos or a Zuckerberg is certainly smart, but why so many people in their industry seem them as modern day prophets is a problem - on a personal level both are assholes, and Zuckerberg stole is big idea.

It's about a week after the balloon went up, and I hear this shrieking mixed in with rattling from the chain link fence. I approach and this ragged threesome is huddled near the gate under the security light. "Open up, you've got to let us in," screams the short one with disheveled pink hair, her grubby fingers locked in a death grip on the fence. "We've been driving for days till the Audi overheated, and then these people started shooting at us and we ran up into the woods. I think they are still right behind us! Help us!"
And I just smile and say, "Zuckerberg," as I shoulder my rifle and walk away into the night.

I have an extended family member who got away with murder. Twice. No charges were ever filed. He joked about one vehicular homicide with the police -- high as a kite on some combination of drugs and alcohol. He stabbed someone else more then 10 times, but never charged, because the dude died of something else -- possibly OD -- shortly after.

It was so shocking to the sensibilities of people in the Philadelphia area that the major daily had an editorial about how the hell did this POS get away with this?

Nope. I want that editorial to follow him around the rest of his life, with rope in hand.

259 As for worrying about a big drop in Amazon stock you have to consider the role that the Central Banks now play in stock market demand. Zero Hedge had a chart last week that showed Central Bank financial assets rising from about 4 trillion to 27 trillion in the last 15 years. Most of that (and all of our Feds assets) is government debt but a lot of it is stock. And when the most valuable company in the world, Apple, isn't yet worth a trillion dollars that's considerable firepower.

IIRC the central bank of Switzerland owns more FB stock than Zuckerberg (but thru non voting shares). If FB drops, why not 'print' more Swiss Francs and bid the price back up? It's why the Zero Hedge folks are fond of saying we haven't had real price discovery - real 'ask-bid' action leading to a market price - in 9 years.

Posted by: JackStraw at May 22, 2017 06:01 PM (/tuJf)


United Launch Alliance, a consortium of Boeing and Lockheed Martin, is a literal government monopoly. Its ONLY customer is the U.S. government. Their launches are so expensive that they lost the commercial satellite market to the European Space Agency and Russia. For the first time in many years, SpaceX is getting some of those launches back.

NASA provided some development funding to SpaceX for cargo (and eventually crew) resupply missions to the ISS. Most of that money was to be sure the vehicle could integrate smoothly with ISS, such as docking mechanism, electrical connections, etc. They also needed to ensure that Dragon could maneuver safely in the vicinity of the ISS. SpaceX had to jump a lot of hurdles before they became certified to fly to the ISS. It makes sense, because that's a $100 billion asset with astronauts on board. They don't want any Tom, Dick, and Harry shooting rockets at it willy-nilly.

But the amount of government funding to SpaceX is a drop in the bucket compared to the money spent on ULA launches, or what they used to spend on the Space Shuttle.

A lot of head games goin' on.

When Hillary mentioned Seth Rich a few days after his Arkancide, she was trying to plant the "move along, nothing to see here"-seed in the public mind.

Trump was playing head games with Hillary at Hofstra a month later when he mentioned a 400-lb. blogger. Message: "You know who I'm talking about. I know you're lying about Russia. And you know I know." Hillary was undoubtedly plugged in to all the relevant Deep State surveillance on DotCom, who she had already previously tried to have extradited to an American prison.

Every time the Clintons break a law, somebody else gets in trouble. They're trying to take that principle all the way to Trump now--but this time, they will fail.

Did Anyone Watch the Twin Peaks Return?

The show was not what I thought it would be, at all.

I thought the show would be what is now called a "soft reboot." I thought they would continue the storyline, but they would introduce a young FBI agent to track the whereabouts of the missing Special Agent Dale Cooper. That agent would then go to Twin Peaks -- where Cooper was last seen, and where he had been working a couple of major cases before disappearing -- and there the agent would meet the locals, and get a sense of the strange darkness that lurks in the woods of the area.

I was pretty sure they would do something like this because most people have not seen Twin Peaks, and most people who have seen it have forgotten most of it except for catchphrases ("Damn fine cup of Joe!"), and most people who have seen it haven't really even seen it -- most people who saw the show actually stopped watching after the first season, and those who persisted through that stopped watching after the killer was kinda sorta revealed in season 2 episode 8.

And even people who've seen the whole thing -- a group which could not possibly constitute more than 1% of the population -- still need a refresher.

How many people actually know that Dale Cooper was imprisoned in the nightmarish alternate-plane-of-existence called "The Black Lodge" (or, the Red Room in the Black Lodge), and replaced on earth by an evil doppleganger possessed by the eternal (?) spirit of murder called "BOB" in the last shot of the show?

Hell, how many people even know about the White Lodge/Black Lodge mythology the show developed in the last six or so episodes after the show had been cancelled because no one was watching any longer?

I only know about that for one reason-- after the Psych parody/homage "Dual Spires," I looked up a list of references made to Twin Peaks, one of which was Sean calling Gus "Lodge Blackman." Which an internet site told me was (of course!) a reference to the Black Lodge, which I'd never heard of.

It so happened that Twin Peaks was available on Netflix or something at that time, so I watched most of the second season.

So I'm hip.

But how many other people know that?

Instead of bringing old viewers, occasional viewers, and non-viewers along slowly, the show assumes you're not only familiar with the weird alien/American Indian hybrid mythology the show came up with at the very end of its run, and furthermore assumes you're not only cool with that, but ready to see that merge right into the end chapter of a Cthulhu story, right out of the (planar) gate.

Even knowing that stuff, I still felt the show was rushing to get to places I would have preferred to get to by the scenic route.

Rather than do a slow build up of omens and portents suggesting dark forces, the show drops supernatural MOABs in the opening half hour, and then gets crazy with planar travel in the third episode.

Now it's all kind of interesting and the supernatural stuff was great, but I still feel it would have had more impact if they had build up to those sequences, rather than just started the show with them.

And for anyone just joining -- or people who have vague memories of Twin Peaks season 1 and maybe the first few episodes of season 2 -- it has to have been alienating. Anyone who tuned out before the finale probably doesn't know that Twin Peaks wasn't just hinting about the supernatural at the end, it was full-on about some extra-dimensional evils invading the world, and might be wondering "What the hell does this have to do with who killed Laura Palmer?"

The "Return" therefore doesn't offer the same experience as the original show, with notions about the hidden paranormal reality underlying our own being suggested slowly (and in a they-can't-be-serious kind of way); it goes X-Files Season 9 right out of the (weird, glass) box.

Also: I think the original show was rightly criticized for having too much silly, inconsequential soap opera (and arch soap opera parody) with too many inconsequential characters, when people really just wanted to focus on the cops, the suspects, and the weird darkness that might or might be invading Twin Peaks.

I remember being very annoyed by the silly nonsense on the side, and, when I sort of re-watched Twin Peaks three years ago, I deployed the fast forward function liberally to skip over anything that I knew wasn't core to the mystery or the supernatural elements. (With the second half of the second season I was seeing for the first time, I didn't know what stuff didn't matter, but I could guess, and I fast forwarded through anything that seemed like it was throwaway nonsense).

The new version seems to, at least for the beginning of it, taken that advice to heart, and most of the early-going is a very dark and gory police procedural without the lightness and distancing element of soap-opera parody and weird-to-be-weird archness of the original.

And to be honest, I think now I was wrong to discount those sillier moments: When you see too much of this really macabre stuff back-to-back, you do kind of want some throwaway moments of levity in between.

The stuff with Matthew Lillard in "Buckhorn, South Dakota" is absolutely horrifying. (And he's doing a really great job of acting -- he seems to be a confused and terrified guy who, while mentally innocent of murder, is in fact physically guilty of a whole lot of murders.)

The glass box was riveting -- surprised as heck to see it paid off so soon.

The David Lynchian semi-humor -- just absurd stuff that is played straight which I guess he thinks is funny, but really isn't funny, it's just weird -- is of course here. Even the trippy parts, which could have been haunting masterpieces, are spoiled a little by Lynch's impulse to subvert himself with gonzo goofiness.

One cameo I won't spoil was great.

I don't know where the show is going, but I desperately want Dale Cooper back. Dale Cooper was such a singular character -- the show's Fonzie. He was the ultimate square -- an upright, uptight, professional lawman, polite and always optimistic and contented -- and yet at the same time weirdly Hippy-bent with his notions of Zen techniques to tap into what the Jungian unconscious might know but keeps hidden from the conscious.

And of course his eager embrace of omens and clues gathered in dreams.

His absolute Lawful Good happiness was a huge reason the dark tones of the original were much more bearable than they otherwise would have been.

And his absence is makes this new version feel a lot darker than I'd like it to feel.

Anyway, have you seen it? What do you guys think?

I like the show and I would like to see it succeed -- which is why I'm more bothered than maybe I should be that I don't think it did nearly enough to bring anyone along on the trip besides people who actually run Twin Peaks Fan Archives sites, and James Roday.

By the Way: Below, some of the Black Lodge scenes from the show, including stuff from the last episode, which featured a lot of time in the parallel dimension of the Black Lodge.

As you can see, if anyone isn't familiar with that, and thus expecting the show to (eventually) go batshit bananas in its new iteration, is going to be pretty bewildered by the full-fledged Astral Travel sequences.

Nope. Not watching. I am enjoying 'Alpha House' though. It's a lot of 'inside the beltway' humour that most people won't recognize. AoS people would, though.

Oh, yeah -- it attacks the ever living hell out of Republicans. But it's still funny. 'Little Marco' (I swear is modeled after Marco Rubio) is a hoot.

Must be a personality deficit on my part, because I'm letting them bust my balls, because I still laugh. I mean John Goodman, how can you not laugh?

Yeah, I know, Garry Trudeau. Sue me.

no it's actually pretty good -- but it seems to pretty good only for the small subset of people I describe-- people who followed the show through its disastrous second season, after its cancellation, and actually bothered to watch the ending (aired after the show was cancelled ,when fans begged ABC to air them), when the show got weird and briefly neat again.

it's like a show that almost requires you to read Wikipedia and fan theory sites before watching, just because they don't bother with any "As you know, the Black Lodge is..." exposition nutshells.

well, it was Twin Peaks that gave birth to the X-Files, Lost, Stranger Days, etc.

They're capitalizing on a trend and a genre they invented, then screwed up because they didn't know where to go from the initial few episodes.

(Lost copied them on that, no? Which is why I never watched Lost. When people told me to watch Lost, I said, "Nope, I've seen Twin Peaks. I know damn well they created a neat and weird premise but have no idea what the ending is going to be, or even where they're going with this, and you'll watch them spin their wheels for a long time until they end up with an out of left field Strange Purgatory semi-ending, just like Twin Peaks did."

Which I understand is what happened.

It's genuine, drinkable milk that is naturally lower in lactose. Also, it does not have to be homogenized because the fat in goat's milk doesn't separate.

I've heard it makes amazing ice cream because of the way the fat behaves, but I've never tried it.

Meyenberg is good. I've had goat's milk from a neighbor, but it tasted too much like a barnyard to me.

Uuuugh the new episodes of Arrested Development were so bad - we watched two and stopped. How could a show that was so good be so awful just because of a change in networks? Did an entirely new production and writing team come on board? We loved the original series.
By the way - re-watching Cheers with the kids. It still holds up. Kelsey Grammer is such a masterful actor. You can see he is destined for stardom from his first show - where he is really just a bit part/part time character. But some actors you can just tell. They "have it."

51 Haven't watched yet but probably will. David Lynch runs off the rails fairly often, but unlike many other directors he *goes for it* and doesn't compromise. And his vision is unlike any other. He's brilliant, in a league with Stanley Kubrick.

If I remember correctly, it also got on that bandwagon about the financial crash, too. It seemed to seep into every storyline and turned the whole thing into an exercise in unfunny.

Sounds like they jumped in too far too fast this time. What I've observed as a successful formula is that first you've got to make a good show with good characters that people will invest in and be interested in - X-Files worked originally because people liked Scully and Mulder, they were intelligent and appealing, and people could get interested in following them and finding out what weird shit they were starting to get into.

But you can't just start off with the Weird Shit, not without giving people a reason for some sort of emotional investment. It just turns into visual Yoko Ono music, and who's gonna keep coming back for that?

84 >>>9 Uuuugh the new episodes of Arrested Development were so bad - we watched two and stopped. How could a show that was so good be so awful just because of a change in networks? Did an entirely new production and writing team come on board? We loved the original series.


1. Barely any writing team, just the show's creator, mostly. Almost all of the show's writers were employed by other shows and could not legally work on another show, even if they wanted to do a favor.

2. Actors rarely in the same location, so there's a problem with timing among people who had, when actually present with each other, great chemistry. Green screen used, for example, to put GOB and Tobias in the same room together.

3. The network always forced them to cut down episodes to 22 minutes. Mitch Hurtwitz was annoyed by this, as some gags he loved got cut.

But you see what happens when he doesn't have that 22 minute hard limit -- his shows bloat into 45 minute or even an hour's worth of snoozers.

The original show featured a lot of quick cutting to speed the show up, resulting in that bang-bang pace. Without that, the show winds up being listless.

4. Mitch Hurwitz seems to have chafed under network rules about decency and likability -- and he uses the Netflix freedom to abandon those. That results in people seeing a lot of stuff they didn't want to see, due to the network imposing some limits on disturbing stuff.

The reboot felt very sour and nasty, whereas the Fox show was forced to affirm all the time that this was a family that, at heart, did love each other.

And you wind up seeing that sometimes The Suits are not wrong.

I don't know what I think of it which is actually a good thing.

I really adore the fact that David Lynch cares not a whit for making his view accessible. I also maintain that, in his mind, he's telling a simple, straight forward story and what's with all you people who don't get it.

Also, how crap does Kyle McLaughlin look like Bander. *victory arms all over the place*

I have always liked Matthew Lillard though it was shocking to see him playing a slightly pudgy, definitely middle aged guy. I was all holy crap that IS Matthew Lillard.

I am very interested to see where it's going. One thing though, those people who got eated by the smoke monster? COME ON PEOPLE. Have you never seen a horror movie ever?

The Red Letter Media guys told me that Fire: Walk With Me (which I've never bothered to fully watch) has a lot of darkness and expanded mythology and said they hoped the new show would be a continuation of that movie, rather than the tv show.

I haven't seen the movie, but I asssume they got their wish, and that this is closer in tone to the darker, nastier "Fire: Walk With Me," and closer as far as going full-on with the far-out stuff.

98 Psych - now that was a great show, almost every episode was a classic.

99 I haven't seen episode 3 and 4 but will watch tonight. Really, brain? You're going to do me like that?

100 Twin Peaks is like your High School sweetheart. 25 years later you remember her fondly and think of all her good qualities. Then you go to the reunion and remember that--oh yeah--she was bat-shit crazy and you really held on to that too long back then.

Nah, Lynch has always been bat-sh*t crazy, and the stuff he's made (before and after Twin Peaks) are of a plain that makes sense, in its insanity.

I love, for example, Mulholland Drive, even though it's completely messed up. Same with Lost Highway. Blue Velvet, in my opinion, is a masterpiece.

I would put Lynch's output up there with just about anybody's, and Twin Peaks still looks great. It's still insane, but it holds up quite well.

101 Sort of related, I guess...


I hate when a show (usually tv show at this point, or sometimes a novel) withholds information from the viewer that the characters logically know or would be learning for no other reason than because the lazy writers clearly didn't bother to put enough effort into developing their world to come up with an answer.

I started watching The Magicians, and gave up for this reason (that and the wildly inconsistent tone). You've got a show where magic is real and hidden, and at least two characters that are audience stand-ins for people finding out about this new reality that they've been dumped in and the show does not explain the rules to the audience. The characters just go from completely in awe of this alternate world that always existed just beyond their fingertips to accepting that it was completely normal and the only way to live and we as the audience didn't get any of that explanation for how or why things work the way they do. The actual answer is obvious, the show writers themselves haven't actually thought how things work on a consistent level, and they clearly don't want to establish rules for the universe and then be constrained whenever they get around to the major plot points that they want to happen.

102 >>>I have always liked Matthew Lillard though it was shocking to see him playing a slightly pudgy, definitely middle aged guy. I was all holy crap that IS Matthew Lillard.

yeah, aging sucks. Or so I'm told.

But Lillard really surprised me. Last time I saw him, he was playing Shaggy on Scooby Doo.

Really pretty good actor!

It does look like she flicked his paw away. It's so funny that leftards are focusing on this action of hers because the Narrative was always that she was an abused Stepford Wife. So which one is it, loonies?

Maybe they have an S&M type marriage and they take turns being doms.

105 My wife is a big fan of Twin Peaks. Wasn't there a movie made quite a few years after the show ended. That I saw with her. At that point I thought I would leave her for being crazy, batshit, wouga-wouga. I don't think I will tell her about this...

108 I've only seen fifteen minutes of the original Twin Peaks, but I will say this about the first episode last night.

Some have said the acting was wooden, but it's definitely not.

It's off kilter in some strange, deliberate, borderline autistic sorta way, and most of the actors seem to bounce back and forth between genuine bemusement under Lynch's direction and trying not to burst out laughing in shame and self-awareness.

109 Sorry, Ace, the last David Lynch thing I ever saw was Eraserhead. Anything more recent than that feels like listening to Paul McCartney and Wings instead of the Beatles.

113 "What else are you going to do with your time? Learn French? Put up shelves?"

Both! I exclusively order my shelves from France so that I can practice reading while putting them up, obviously.

114 I've heard that title before, but I've never watched it. I didn't really like Eraserhead.

Heh.

My opinion is accepted as unassailable proof (of anything) in 47 different gender studies journals.
