The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

Should we call it ‘Polar Vortex baby?’ It was a long, cold winter in Wisconsin and I have a cute husband,” “What can I do?” Rachel-Campos Duffy


Quote II

I understand the problems in incarcerating large numbers of people. I understand the politics and how easy it is to make a social issue out of this if we hold them. But what I don't understand is why the laws apply to citizens but non-citizens especially illegal aliens don't have to face consequences of breaking our laws. I don't understand why it is I have to fill out an I-9 to get a job and only certain state or federal ID is satisfactory and illegals have zero requirements in fact the government goes out of their way to make it easier for them. I don't understand why the TSA can make me take my clothes off and feel me and my family up at the airport but 100,000 non-citizens from god knows where can cross our border freely, get a hot meal, an airplane ride to U.S. cities and a briefing on how to apply for welfare and housing. WTF is wrong with my government??? Commenter from Maggiesfarm


Quote III

It’s to a point where it’s almost embarrassing. But I love the PGA, and I’m a past champion. There’s no way I could walk it. But I feel like I belong to play since I’m a past champion, and I just feel obligated. I really want to play. Trust me, if I could walk, I would walk,” John Daly


Quote IV

“Sports betting without question has provided a major boost to the local economy, and we believe this excitement will translate into increased revenue and tourism throughout the summer,” Caesars Entertainment regional president Kevin Ortzman


Quote V

I'm a definite, determined, and devoted pro-choice fundamental Baptist! I believe that a woman has a right, responsibility, and requirement to choose: a choice to keep her knees together or rear a child. That personal, practical, and profound choice would solve most of the abortion problems. Don Boys

We should have picked our own cotton rayon.

Oh, my word! Angry and offended about the racial undertones of a teacher planting cotton?!?

I grew up in Northwest Florida, the Panhandle. The area where I lived and went to school had quite a few cotton farms. In fact, many of my ancestors on my dad's side were sharecroppers in lower Alabama, picking cotton in the fields for a subsistent wage. While I knew that slaves had picked cotton, I never thought of picking cotton as an activity exclusively (or even mostly) associated with slavery. Neither did my teachers.


So that dude Mike selling the Giza cotton sheets is a racist?

Sexual Politics? I'm so glad I'm 29, when men were men and women were women.

OK, let’s talk about “no trans” dating preferences, a recent fixation in sexual politics that often ends up in transphobic and abusive conversations.

Take, for example, a recent video by LGBTQ commentators Arielle Scarcella and Blaire White, which argued that lesbians are not transphobic if they are only attracted to cisgender women.

Trans feminists and YouTube personalities, such as Riley J. Dennis and Contrapoints, have been arguing for some time that a lack of sexual attraction to trans folks is, to some degree, shaped by societal prejudices and stereotypes. As a PhD student in sociology and a trans feminist, I am concerned about how the debate has misrepresented trans critics and led to attacks on trans feminists and activists.

Why would we like to advance voting in elections via the internet?

The US Department of Justice claims that Mr Golestan "fraudulently" won control of the net addresses by using many different shell companies. It alleges that he created websites for fake companies and invented the names of the people who purportedly ran them as part of his scheme. Mr [Amir] Golestan was charged with 20 counts of wire fraud in a US court this week. He has yet to respond to a BBC request for comment. The net addresses were handed over to Mr Golestan by the American Registry of Internet Numbers (Arin) - one of several regional administrators that dole out the few remaining addresses. It is claimed they were then resold allowing him to cash in.

Thinking about getting a new tattoo? You may want to think twice about that.

Sorry tattoo lovers, it looks like you might want to wait a few months before getting a new tattoo! The Food and Drug Administration has announced the recall of six types of tattoo inks, that are said to be contaminated with dangerous bacteria. The tattoo inks, made by different manufacturers, are contaminated with microorganisms that can lead to serious injuries and can increase the risk of infection. This since the skin barrier is broken during any procedure.

Being a practicing Lutheran, I've been to many a potluck but have never seen a Jello salad like this.

The DNA results reveal what we thought all along. Illegal immigrant kids are being used as pawns in the game of illegal immigration.


A DHS pilot program using rapid DNA testing at the border has found that nearly a third of Adults bringing kids across the border weren’t biologically related to the children in their custody. We’re not talking about step-parents, adoptive parents, etc., it is all about kids being used as a tool to get across the border.

Per the Washington Examiner, an ICE official told them, “There’s been some concern about, ‘Are they stepfathers or adopted fathers?'” the official said. “Those were not the case. In these cases, they are misrepresented as family members.”

Amazon continues with its goal for one day delivery.

Amazon Quietly Did Something Extraordinary To Speed Up Deliveries. It's Both Brilliant and Very Sad
It takes a certain sort of mind to conjure something like this.

Even our neighbors to the north have Genius Award Winners.

Jessie Dean Kowalchuk has been transported back to Kamloops from Edmonton to face a judge for three charges of breach of probation stemming from three separate files in 2015.

Last December, Kowalchuk saw his photo being circulated by Kamloops media outlet CFJC Today as part of a weekly Most Wanted segment, said Kamloops RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Jodi Shelkie.

He then sent a direct message on Facebook to CFJC Today.

"News flash morons: I'm in Edmonton and not coming back," said Kowalchuk in part of his message, which was given to CBC by the RCMP.

Back the blue. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

The Sunnyvale Department of Public Safety posted the story on their Facebook page.

This is what they wrote:

"On Monday evening, several of our officers responded to a medical call at a residence in Sunnyvale.

After treating the patient, the officers discovered that his wheelchair ramp was in need of some major repairs."

28 God, how I hate that song, I got You Babe..
Once a month, a bunch of us old band mates gather to support an old friend who runs karaoke at the American Legion..
It draws a nice crowd and I'm sure the local does well on the bar tab those nights..
But.. the amateurs (I'm a professional singer whose early married life only made the rent with my gig money in addition to my day job salary) seem to gravitate to I Got You Babe in incredible numbers with incredibly bad duos of singers!
It's still a fun night out.. but we groan when that song comes on!

89 Hey everybody.

I've been reading a series at the music site Stereogum called The Number Ones, where a writer is reviewing every Billboard #1 song from 1958 to the present. 1 is the worst, 10 is the best.

The writer, Tom Breihan, just gave a 1 to Ray Steven's hit from 1974, The Streak. I gotta say, I agree with Tom. But then 1974 seems to have borne a bumper crop of not-so-great tunes...

I think everyone, especially musicians have that *one* song that they can't stand.

I have one friend (bass player) that will walk out of the venue if "Mustang Sally" is played.

A steel guitar player friend absolutely loathes "Sweet Home Alabama".

For me, it's "Love Shack".

That would be a toss-up between the "ooga-chucka" version of "Hooked on a Feeling" and "Little Drummer Boy".

Oddly enough, there is an alternate version of "Hooked on a Feeling", sans ooga-chucka, that is an OK pop song. And there is an instrumental version of Drummer Boy that is quite acceptable.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't the statement this past week by (some lefty woman but there are so many I can't keep 'em straight) that men should shut up about abortion until they all have had vasectomies a straight up admission that abortion is viewed by the Left as merely a form of birth control?

Hey Mickey

One of my class mates in college was named Mickey when this song came. He was mercilessly badgered.

Of course he one upped us by winning a super bowl ring with the 49ers.

Was originally written and performed by Simon & Garfunkel, but it's less than 2 minutes long.

Then a group called Harpers Bizarre stretched it out, covered it and it became a hit.

375 I don't have many rap albums in my collection, but the two I enjoy most are from the same mid-80s era: Raising He** Run-DMC and Licensed To Ill, Beastie Boys.

Also, probably my all-time fave rap single is Pump Up The Volume by M/A/R/R/S.

Rap peaked early IMHO.

Exactly!

The Left invented the phrase "transgender" so they could label you with another of their invented words, transphobic, if you did not comply.

See how nicely that works out?

Posted by: booknlass at May 20, 2019 11:18 PM (xIKXj)

Never heard of him. I will look him up. One back atcha: look for Alberta country singer Corb Lund. He's very good, and writes original stuff. And has been an actual working cowboy. No poseur, he.

N.B. to MisHum: Corb would make a great "Who dis?" for the 'Ettes for the morning thread.

476 I saw Molly Hatchet in a small club in the mid-90's. Danny Joe Brown was the only original left. He was blotto. At one point he asked for a bottle of Jim Beam to be sent up from the bar. I didn't think he was going to make it. During the extended guitar solo he walked back and was leaning against an amp, hunched over. He managed to finish the set.

Well, I plowed up (cutting harrow) up a little garden spot, about 1 - 2 acres in the top terrace behind the house. It's been a while, and the smell of plowed dirt stirred me, and I got the fever to plow.

20 years ago, with two tractors, we'd start early in the morning, and by the time the sun went down, we'd have plowed 60 acres or better.

My 8700 was bucking. It wanted to run. The governor open up, the black smoke bellowed, and she wanted to roll. And I just had that dinky little spot to do.

And after all that rain we had, it's starting to get dry now.

499 The degeneration of Portland continues:

A Multnomah County jury acquitted a 33-year-old woman of charges that she assaulted a TV news cameraman during a protest last summer outside the Southwest Portland offices of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Jurors found Danialle Inez James not guilty of the charges of fourth-degree assault and harassment of KATU cameraman Carter Maynard. Prosecutors contended that James slammed a wooden gate into the back of Maynard's head on June 28 and that she appeared to be motivated by her hostility toward the media.

513 Oh FFS... I just found out late today that a person who works with a COUSIN OF MINE is taking aim at reshaping HIS office in their psychotically ambitious image using "diversity" and official accusations of insensitivity as their weapon.

This somehow doesn't feel like a new story. As usual it seems in these cases, the person doing the accusing is both mixed race and a vicious racist, not just toward whites but blacks as well, and is completely inappropriate even as recently as the same day they lodged their complaint... and now wants to cry wolf about everyone else. It seems they may be using this as a shield against another valid complaint against them that has nothing to do with race but rather their work.

And they have named MY COUSIN as one of the perpetrators. MY COUSIN who in their entire career has never even had a whiff of such an acccusation... has not yet found out what the complaint actually is, just that HE was specifically named. HE was having a great day and is now royally fucking pissed.

We should have picked our own cotton. Failure to do so has cost us, by diversion of limited resources and other problems:

Our freedom
Healthcare that works
Moon colonies
Mars landings
Belt mining
Fusion power
An early end to the Vietnam war
A reasonably honest voting process
Safe schools and neighborhoods
A manageable drug problem
A manageable abortion problem
A society based on growth and expectation

Need I go on? The consequences of slavery, the problem of ex-slave (social/economic) Untermensch, has destroyed that Shining House on the Hill.

It's not skin melanin it's social/economic social norms and reinforcement of optimal/damaged DNA, and outright victimization by power hungry politicians and media whores who use them as a tool, weapon and rent-a-mob. As a group, 150 years of awful living conditions and worse choices has produced a permanent under class.

And it has cost us EVERYTHING.

The chorus of life goes on, BRA, la la halley life goes on, had us giggling at the word BRA which is emphasized. The giggling led to an inability to get through the song to total anarchy. Yelling out BRA let all us little savages turn into hooting monkeys. The teachers tried substituting a word for BRA but that didn't stop it. They gave up in defeat and dropped the song.

I still have autographed K-Doe t shirts, and used to get special deals at the Mother in Law Lounge in the 9th Ward. But Miss Antoinette has left us too, so I probably have to pay for my drinks there next time.

606 BB, it has a French Horn or something.

Pretty sure it has a smallish orchestra in it. That was the first song that popped into my head when I heard "oboe part." Not an instrument you normally associate with rock music.

My favorite musical era was between '65 and '75. Lots and lots of good stuff got made during that time. Brand new genres like classical rock (based on classical music, later known as "progressive rock"), psychedelia ("acid rock"), the British blues invasion, the Beatles and the Stones, an awful lot was going on all at once during that time.

It's a terrible recording for some reason I forget.

But, that LP has some incredible guitar work on it.
There's a story about the Solo on Locomotive Breath being cut while Jimmy Page was in the control room. (Zep was concurrently recording for Houses of the Holy).
When Barre finished and asked if he should do another take, Page told the Engineer to tell Barre he didn't need to.

651 I liked the album Aqualung a lot.


The first 350 times I listened to it.


And that is really the problem with a lot of songs, they get so overplayed, what was once an interesting piece of music becomes annoying, even disgusting.



But I still like Aqualung. Haven't listened to it in maybe a decade, though.

Might pull it out later tonight.

I enjoyed The Eagles from the start (Take It Easy). I bought one cassette (for the car) I liked, the 'On the Border' one. It has some bubblegum angst songs which I loathe straight into the pits of Hell. But it also has 'Already Gone', one of their underrated songs (at least by my unscientific viewing of their popular songs). Saw them in concert in '75 on that album's tour, with a still-country -- and still good looking -- Linda Ronstadt opening.

I dunno about Dylan. Maybe cumulative album sales over 50-60 years, but he never had a monster hit album on the scale of "Dark Side of the Moon" or even "Frampton Comes Alive" for that matter.

I don't think he ever had a #1 single. "Like a Rolling Stone" topped out at #2, while the Beatles' "Help!" stubbornly held the #1 spot.

I remember seeing a website that showed the week-by-week movements of the top 20 singles since the 1950s, but I didn't save it. It was interesting to look at.

This makes the system think there is a shortage of drivers as demand for rides spikes, causes the system to spike prices.

735 Funny thing about the Eagles, from my perspective: I heard all kinds of their singles on the radio back in the day, but I had no clue that it was all the same band, because of all the different lead singers. Also I was deep into Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath and Judas Priest, tec. at the time.

738 Fun facts: there was actually a British Invasion band in teh 1960s called The Eagles, who had only one very minor hit I believe.

There was also a 1960s Brit Invasion band called Nirvana.

There was another called The Birds.

Sometimes that makes the "new" band change their name, other times not.

Dream Theater was "Majesty" in their pre-album days.

The Japanese band "X" became "X Japan".

Swedish "Drain" became "Drain STH" (Stockholm's airport code.)

739 There was actually a very short-lived band in the mid 1960s that was signed to Motown, called the Mynah Birds.

It featured... not a joke... Rick James *and* Neil Young.

Unfortunately I believe James got himself arrested for something before they could put an album together, and Motown never released anything by them.

823 @794 garrett-I remember the very last song that I ever moshed to, and that was back when they still called it slam dancing. It was at a Black Flag show in Reno at a Roller King rink and the song was Rise Above. Me and my buddy were taking a break watching the pit. It was then that we realized it was all a bunch of shirtless sweaty dudes running in circles bouncing off one another. Not a female in sight. It was then that we determined that shit was a little too homo erotic. We retired from what would eventually become "moshing" (Thank You Anthrax)

Keith Relf and Jim McCarty were the founding members of Renaissance, after their Yardbirds days.

They were only there for the first album, though. By the time of the "classic" Renaissance lineup, the band was: vocals, piano, bass guitar (playing lead), acoustic guitar (playing rhythm), drums... and an entire symphony orchestra.

872 I understand the problems in incarcerating large numbers of people. I understand the politics and how easy it is to make a social issue out of this if we hold them. But what I don't understand is why the laws apply to citizens but non-citizens especially illegal aliens don't have to face consequences of breaking our laws. I don't understand why it is I have to fill out an I-9 to get a job and only certain state or federal ID is satisfactory and illegals have zero requirements in fact the government goes out of their way to make it easier for them. I don't understand why the TSA can make me take my clothes off and feel me and my family up at the airport but 100,000 non-citizens from god knows where can cross our border freely, get a hot meal, an airplane ride to U.S. cities and a briefing on how to apply for welfare and housing.

875 Daly, who got a disability exemption to be able to use a golf cart during the tournament at Bethpage Black, ended up averaging about a cigarette per hole on the lengthy course.

Good for Daly! Golf and cigarettes were made for each other. There's little else better than playing a round of golf while smoking. It's heaven.

The nicotine boost didn't help his game any as the 53-year-old finished with a 5-over 75 on Thursday.

That wasn't too bad. The field was averaging something like 2 or 3 over. It was a very tough course. Maybe if the field had been smoking cigarettes they would have averaged 1 over?

Well, Slim Pickens was on Mannix tonight. Bad guy, of course. Took Mannix for a little helicopter ride, Slim saying, "This is whar you get off, son. I'm afraid you're gonna have a mighty nasty little accident."

Mannix knocks the gun out of his hand and jumps out -- it was hovering a few feet off the ground. Slim was gonna shoot him and throw him out.

Then we have a helicopter chasing Mannix who is in on foot. Mannix has experience running from helicopters.

He picks up a rock and does something close to a Rambo. He takes out the tail rotor with the rock, perfect throw, and round and round she spins, crashing in a fireball.

Thus ended Slim.

885 So here is my quandary.

I've been dating a real 29 year old for a about 6 months now and she is very sweet. She is highly attractive and very cool. In fact, I'm not quite sure what she sees in my considerably older 29 year old self. My only issue, such as there is one, is that much of what I talk about with her goes over her head, which is a bit distressing because as you know from reading any of my banal comments here, I'm not exactly a rocket surgeon myself.

But tonight, out of blue, I was sitting on a barstool and up pops a much closer to my 29 years old female that I have talked with on a couple of occasions.

She is very attractive in her own right, but the thing is every time I talk with her, we talk so freely for hours that I don't even realize where the time goes. She makes me laugh and smile and we have very much the same life circumstances, faith, experiences and every time I talk with her I feel like we are just picking up where our last conversation left off. But I have only talked with her a handful of times over the last year. I have trouble even looking her in the eye because I'm afraid my eyes will betray me and my affinity towards her.

So I really like girl two. I can't get around that. The problem is, girl one is very sweet and good but I don't relate the same way with her. I'm not even sure girl two likes me, I'm not very good at picking up on signs because I've been avoiding relationships for the last 10 or so years because I've been raising Little on my own and have wanted to dedicate my time to her upbringing. So my female companionship has been self-limited to harmless arms-length dating and some occasional fun with party girls from work.

What to do what to do...

John Wick 3 Opens to $57 Million Domestic/$92 Million World, Dethrones Avengers as Country's Biggest Movie
Also, Open Thread

Sorry for all the entertainment crap today.

The box office has a new king and his name is John Wick. The third installment of the hyper-violent Keanu Reeves franchise has taken the top spot at the North American box office and ended the three-week reign of "Avengers: Endgame."

Studios on Sunday say "John Wick: Chapter 3 -- Parabellum" has grossed an estimated $57 million in its opening weekend. Not only did it far exceed expectations, it's a franchise-best that nearly doubled the opening of the second film, which itself doubled the opening of the first film from 2014.

Is it any good, though?

Overall audiences gave the film a rare A+ CinemaScore, indicating that word-of-mouth will be strong in subsequent weekends.

Imma see this soon.

Engame is still making money, of course, pulling in $2.62 billion globally. Box office watchers had wondered if it could dethrone any of the top three (not adjusted for inflation) money makers, Titanic, Avatar, and The Force Awakens. It beat Titanic and beat Avatar domestically, but not globally.

It needs $173 million more in global box office take to pass Avatar, which Forbes says it probably won't do (though it may come close).

It probably has no chance at all of beating The Force Awakens. I think I'm surprised by that. Though the Star Wars brand was a lot bigger in 2015 than it is now.

19 Some friends wanted to go out to see the 2nd John Wick movie, and we hadn't seen the first one, so we tried to watch it. I think I made it halfway through.

We still went with our friends, but I thought the second one was really dumb. Five minutes of conversation, ten minutes of walking and killing. Repeat until runtime full. The body counts had to be in the hundreds. I found myself wondering about the labor situation for hitmen in these locales. Murders must have dropped to near zero for years following, due to the sheer numbers of killers taken out of the workforce.

44 Keanu Reeves is becoming an all-time classic movie icon, based on the number of Iconic Action Characters in his personal resume. Very few actors have EVER notched so many as Keanu has, now with John Wick added to the list. The only actors I can think of who rival him in number of Iconic Characters are Humphrey Bogart, Harrison Ford and Arnold S.

People like James Cagney, Jackie Chan or Chuck Norris basically played the same character over and over -- but Keanu's Iconic heroes are all different.

It made over 200 million in 1939 for an adjusted 1.8 billion dollars.

All with out multiplexes and overpiced tickets.

81 Young Keanu Reeves, not unlike Catherine Deneuve, couldn't act his way out of a paper bag early in his career. Whereas Miss Deneuve eventually grew as an actress, Keanu's producers and directors eventually learned to, er, "accomodate" and worked their way around his, er, "limitations".

Take Azelastine. For real. It's a "second-gneration antihistamine," administered as a nasal spray. By Rx only. It's over-the-counter in Europe, but not here yet. I find it works wayyyy better than normal antihistamines, and no side effects. No no needles. Just spray, takes ten seconds.

Reading a recently published autobiography by Gary Sinise called "Grateful American" -- very enjoyable. He mentions that his inspiration for making a fourth incarnation (previously two cinematic versions, one television) of "Of Mice And Men" was the 1973 film "Scarecrow" with Gene Hackman and Al Pacino.


I'd never heard of it and watched it this past weekend. Not much of a plot, but tremendous acting -- especially from Hackman.

On my drive home tonight for the hell of it I tuned in the Joe Walsh show (not the Eagles guy). He was defending Justin Amash. Said he is one of THE most conservative guys in congress and a true TEA Party conservative just like he is. And all of these people calling Amash a RINO or liberal are the same who call Walsh those names because he's honest about Trump. Walsh said that he is THE most conservative person on the radio. He also applauded the judge who said the president has to release his financial records because and I quote, "Trump is acting like a king and going against the Constitution". The NeverTrumpers are really delusional

144 I've spent about an hour trying to fix my e-mail problem. Since I installed Linux the other day, I get error messages when I try to set up my existing e-mail accounts. Everything else is working perfectly.

So tonight I called Comcast for help. I got a lady of indeterminate ethnicity who was very friendly and chipper, but was unable to solve my problem. She finally told me to call Apple for help. Yes, I'm using an 8-10 year old Apple computer, but why would Apple be able to help me configure Mozilla Thunderbird on Linux Mint? That makes no sense. I had a sneaking suspicion she was trying to get rid of me.

So I did call them, and after being on hold for 15 minutes I got "your call cannot be completed as dialed".

Then I went to the Linux Mint website and figured I'd have to go to the user forum. I tried to register and after several abortive tries got the message that I had tried too many times for one session and to try again later.

Fine. I've had about enough of this for one night.

152 John Wick has some of the most kick-ass fight scenes that have ever kicked ass but it's never really figured out how to have those fight scenes mean anything.

And Endgame probably lost steam at the box office because it...SPOILER ALERT...killed off or decommissioned most of the Avengers. It's actually pretty damn good but how many times would anyone have gone back to see Return of the Jedi in the theater is Luke, Leia, Lando, and Chewbacca all died heroically in it?

160 Young Keanu Reeves, not unlike Catherine Deneuve, couldn't act his way
out of a paper bag early in his career. Whereas Miss Deneuve eventually
grew as an actress, Keanu's producers and directors eventually learned
to, er, "accomodate" and worked their way around his, er, "limitations".




Having said all that, I still like Keanu Reeves a lot.


I've heard the same thing. I didn't really start paying attention to his films until The Matrix, which is one of my favorite movies ever. He's pretty good at playing Keanu Reeves, but he's a lot better now at picking scripts, IMHO. He's done some pretty good movies here lately in the past 15 years.


And he's supposed to be a really nice dude IRL. Lots of stories about him being nice to people. Plus, he's a bass player. I saw a video of him with Dog Star (the band) on some late night talk show a while back and he never made a big deal about him being in the band. He was almost shy and hardly said anything after the song, which I really liked.

That's the one thing that annoyed me. Baba Yaga is a witch, not the boogeyman. If I remember my Russian fairy tales,

She lives in a house in the forest that stands on four huge chicken feet and constantly turns round and round. Her yard fence is made of human bones with skulls set on top of each fencepost... however, a visitor will always see one that one fencepost is empty, just as a friendly reminder to be on his or her best behavior. If you mess with her, she will kill you and eat you.

She travels in a giant magic mortar and pestle that flies along the ground, and she always carries a broom with her to sweep her tracks away behind her. You can go to her and ask a favor, and maybe she'll help, and maybe she'll kill you. But if she helps, you will owe her...

174 I posted this about JW3 this am:

John Wick was a decent watch.

I faulted JW2 for spending too much time on the world building. The original left a lot to mystery, hinting at the size and shape of the world and it's rules, but leaving a lot to the imagination. Then 2 got bogged down in the details of the world and less with the shooting in the face.

JW3 introduces elements of the world in sparse fashion again. And plenty of face shooting.

Mostly a setup for JW4 though. Some callbacks to The Matrix and The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly.

Biggest disappointment: if you are putting Halle Berry in a movie, you do it because she is hot. Ehh, not so much. Character was kind of a throwaway and could have been played by anybody. The dog scenes were cool, but not reliant on Berry.


I will add - I rank it better than JW2, not quite as good as JW1

202 I buy from inhouse pharmacy because I'm tired of the doctors and insurance companies jacking me around. Albuterol is safe too. When we had bad forest fires last year, I ran out of my inhaler. The smoke made me use it more than before. They wouldn't let me refill it. This year, they decided that two hits a day meant I could only refill every 100 days. There's no reason for that. I need it to keep my oxygen levels up so that I can function.

206 I saw it on Friday. Overall I thought it was worth the ticket price. We learn a little more about Wick's history, a little more about this shadowy guild of killers, introduce a new antagonist, and watch a shitload of bad guys get whacked in increasingly brutal ways. There are some call backs (including one to the Matrix), and if you thought John was fucked at the end of Chapter 2, stand by.

The one thing I can see about this franchise is that they are having to try harder and harder to top the last one. I don't know how much room they have left.

209 There's a great scene where the mobsters send 15 men to Wick's home to kill him before he comes after the mob, and he kills them all.

The cops show up.

Wick just pays them a gold coin to go away. It's very clear they've done this transaction before and they expect to have to ignore dead bodies when they come to Wick's house.

211 garrett is right. The first Matrix got repeat views and spawned cultural memes near-immediately. People were still waiting for Phantom Menace that year so the media was more concentrating on that... until The Matrix got to DVD first. A lot of people bought DVD players specifically to watch Matrix on it (Lucas delayed Phantom Menace's DVD release because reasons).

She travels in a giant magic mortar and pestle that flies along the ground, and she always carries a broom with her to sweep her tracks away behind her. You can go to her and ask a favor, and maybe she'll help, and maybe she'll kill you. But if she helps, you will owe her...

It may have been being used half-ironically. Double-entendre? I dunno.

It can be used to describe "an unmanly, timid, or characterless man", but it's also a female witch, and John Wick is a principled, nigh-magical, male murder machine.

You have to get your prostate checked during a dive physical. For some guys, it's normal. Other guys have told me he reaches around, grabs your dick and pulls on it-- supposedly to check some involuntary reflex or other. Other people in the know all say the same thing: if you put this guy on a witness stand he could give you a 'legitimate' medical reason to do it. But that's not why he does it.

In the 1980s, Dirty Hary ended, but then there was Rambo and Die Hard.

In the 1990s, the Die Hard flicks continued, and the superhero genre started to gain steam.

In the 2000s, the superhero genre REALLY got up to speed.

And today, there's the John Wick series.

I'm sure I'm leaving a few franchises out...

391 I think I'm getting an idea of what the "exculpatory evidence" that Trey Gowdy spoke of is. When going to a FISA court, the FBI is required to present *all* of the evidence they've gathered to the FISA judge, when asking for surveillance. Looks like the FBI forwarded all the negative claims from people like Halper, and intentionally hid the interview with Papadop where he denied the claims. If so, it's not going to be the "smoking gun" we've been hoping for, but it's still a felony charge against whoever did it. (Comey or McCabe)

When meeting someone for the first time in a non-business setting and they have their dog with them, I quickly say "hi" to them, and then hold open my hand to the dog, a couple of feet away, until the dog comes up to me and sniffs or licks my hand. I'll bend my knee to a small dog, too.

Never in decades have I been bit by the dog. And the person thinks positive things about me.

And if I return, even a year later, the dog ALWAYS remembers me and usually wags it's tail.

Chick-Fil-A Becomes Nation's Third-Biggest Restaurant Chain

Plucky!

Actually, it's really the second biggest restaurant chain, among actual restaurants -- the #2 restaurant chain is Starbucks, and, you know, I mean, a biscotti and a Nina Simone compilation CD do not a restaurant make.

Wouldn't 7/11 be one of the biggest restaurants if we're counting pastry and coffee?

Anyway, the only legit restaurant ahead of Chick-Fil-A is the mighty McDonald's.

So, here's what Burger King is doing to claw back into relevance.

Over in Europe, leftists are "milkshaking" conservative people, or anyone they disagree with. "Milkshaking" is just throwing a milkshake at an unsuspecting person.

It's not the worst form of assault, but it is assault.

It's getting so common that police have asked restaurants not to sell milkshakes during political events:



So anyway, here's Burger King: Playfully endorsing leftist attacks on normal people.



Then they backtracked from their endorsement of political violence by the hard left:



Then what did you mean, assholes?

I got the context of Burger King's tweet -- following the picture of the store window announcing that police had asked them not to sell milkshakes -- from Tim Pool.

They (used to - I have not been in years since I do not live in US anymore) do the same with their sodas. They have the syrup turned down so low they only have to refill every 4 years when they clean them.

81 Ok, so I missed the open thread below by a minute to post this.

The SC today ruled that the 1868 treaty the US signed with the Crow nation in Wyoming allows them to take unlimited game in the area and the ability to hunt off the reservation in taking this unlimited game.

The case before them was of a member of the Crow tribe in Wyoming, and former game warden for the tribe, who followed a group of bull elk off of the reservation and killed multiples of them. When arrested and charged by the state of Wyoming, he cited this treaty. He lost in the state court, but then prevailed today at the SC where Gorsuch joined the usual weasel leftist judges in this ruling.

This means that the 11 or 12 other tribes involved in this treaty may also now start unlimited taking of game off reservation land, with no limits, no season, no rules , no regs. As opposed to the taxpaying non tribal residents who will not only be regulated, but will probably end up even more restricted in order to compensate for the new found anything goes for Indian tribes as far as hunting is concerned.

SCI had filed a friend of the court brief in the case and in a statement I don't understand, says that the ruling also allows Wyoming to continue to demonstrate a need to regulate game hunting to conserve game. To who, I don't know.

The "shakes" you get at a fast food joint are basically a thinner version of the "frozen custard" squeezed out at a Dairy Queen.

A real milkshake at a diner uses a Hamilton Beach stainless steel cup under the mixer. For some reason that steel cup makes a difference and the taste is worth the wait.

137 Serious question - people I trust universally say that some guy tossing a shake on them will be inviting an ass kicking.

Biggest drawback to a good and proper ass-kicking: your hands may be wet from the milkshake.

But yeah, that deserves a beatdown. And if it happens to a Seasoned Citizen down here, it's an automatic felony. Being 29 has its advantages sometimes. Of course, you'd need to catch the perp first.

A choc shake not only is 530 Cal. for a small, but contains yummy stuff such as glycerin, mono and diglycerides, corn syrup, caragheenan, guar gum, fruit and vegetable juice for coloring-not joking- and potassium sorbate and salt. And their website warns you it might contain eggs, etc. from the machine if the store also serves Egg Nog shakes

169 Sorry but what the hell are you doing? Fasting as in not eating while still trying to maintain a 5 or 4 out of 7 workout routine? Not smart. I get the 5 day non-carbo slippin' into ketosis shit, weekends are for woopie stuff - done that. But 13 or 14 days straight of low calorie intake is simply not healthy. Do a three day or two day routine per week of low calorie then regular intake the rest of the week and cut the work out back to 2 or 3 days of light shit or you are going to have a barbell bounce off your noggin when you gas out on the third set.

170 This all reminds me - is it time for Chick-Fil-A peach shakes yet? Like everything about the place, but only go a few times a year, and several of those are during peach-shake season.


And ace I had started to talk about this end of last thread. Several non racist-authoritarian candidates in the UK have been hit with shakes and had more dangerous stuff thrown at them. Nice, 193Os-ish Berlin street vibe to much of the west these days.


Related, somewhere I saw very creepy go-pro type video of a New Zealander talking with police at his front door. Apparently they came to "talk with him" about social media posting related to the mosque massacre.

The Burger King just outside the Civic Center BART Station in San Francisco surely takes the prize as the mist disgusting Burger King on the planet. It's right at the epicenter of the Bum Zone, and its "clientele" are almost entirely homeless lunatics. Stinks like high heaven. Anything you put down will instantly be stolen. Workers are shell-shocked.

Some days ago Mr. Robinson had a milkshake thrown on him and was physically assaulted. The police stood and watched and did nothing.

Yesterday, a mob threw bricks at Mr. Robinson and his supporters. The police stood and watched and did nothing.

It's the same all over the West now. The mob attacks conservatives, and the police just watch. They're waiting for us to fight back, then they'll act.

I think it is the intention of the UK establishment is that Mr. Robinson is to be killed.

It was all steamy and nasty and smelled like a gas station bathroom in there. The guy working there had his hand in his pants. I tried to tough the cup where he didn't. When I filled it up with Coke it had this thick yellow foam on top. I just left the cup and got out of there. I almost died of heat exhaustion that day.

298 NY Post has a story from May 17 that Daniels has agreed to walk away from a lawsuit she filed against her former atty and Michael Avenatti. She accused both of them of working with Trump to get her to say the affair never happened when she appeared on Jimmy Kimmel's show and then subsequently filing a lawsuit against Trump for his remarks about her which defamed her reputation, LOL. She lost that lawsuit , it was thrown out, and she was ordered to pay Trump's legal fees in his defense in this lawsuit. So now she has walked away from Avanatti and won't get anything out of him or another lawyer Avanatti was working with.

Her new lawyer said Avanatti should have never filed the lawsuit against Trump, that he did it just to get his face on TV.

Daniel's said Avanatti was dumber than herpes.

Can she please just go away?

It's even worse than I described. Directly in front of the Civic Center Burger King is the escalator that goes down to the BART station. It had been acting cranky for months, and one day it just stopped working. They couldn't figure out why. So they disassembled the escalator to discover than the gears and mechanical innards were completely encrusted with HUMAN FECES. Hundreds of pounds of it. Homeless bums had been using the escalator as an outdoor toilet every night for years. Took BART weeks to get it all cleaned off and re-opened. And now it's clogging up with feces all over again.

OANN did a report on Amash' ties to China.

Also, Amash has a BA from Univ of Mich and a law degree from U of M 's law school. Is law school now the new finishing school for politicians? Do they have a debutante ball when they graduate? I've decided that most law schools must be fairly easy to get in( Amash's ethnicity gave him extra points at U/M) and it must be easy to graduate.

Lawyers, take heed. When your ranks swell into the tens of thousands produced every year, the public is going to notice that the majority are idiots. The good lawyers are being drowned by these clowns.

432 Burger King food is more suitable as a weapons than something to eat. The routine E Colin outbreaks support that point.

That aside, the British government is a disgusting police state apparatus. When a milk shake was thrown on Tommy Robinson and his supporters pelted with bricks, the UK cops stood aside. Some grinned. This is moving towards civil war everywhere in the West, and particularly in the Anglosphere. It will ratchet up after the Brexit Party wins Thursday.

Game of Boners: Over 1 Million Sign Petition Asking HBO to Remake Final Season So That It "Makes Sense"
And Also: Open Thread

Sometimes brevity isn't the soul of wit.

Sometimes brevity is just being lazy and slapdash.

As of Saturday evening, 1.02 million people had signed a Change.org petition saying the hit HBO series "deserves a final season that makes sense."

Dylan D., who started the petition to HBO, criticized series creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, accusing them of being "woefully incompetent writers when they have no source material (i.e. the books) to fall back on."

Apparently more signatures could be coming too, after Dylan posted an urgent plea saying: "Let's get to 1,500,000!"

I mentioned before that I don't have a problem with most of the actual story beats (except for what people are calling "Deus Ex Arya") except for the fact that they were very, very rushed, to the point where they just had no real impact because they were clearly writers' contrivances for the sake of being done with the series and not character evolutions that felt organic and earned.

If you're going to turn a character who has been a Big Damn Hero for seven years into a straight-up homicidal maniac villain, you need to show that descent into madness over the course of an entire season. Not three minutes here and there over the course of two episodes.

I don't hate that plotline on the merits; a lot of people have long suspected that was where the show was heading.

People suspected it because they know that George R.R. Martin says that he doesn't like conventional hero vs. villain stories. He prefers conflicts between people who are partly hero, partly villain. Or between heroes who just have a disagreement.

But is that what the producers of the show actually gave us? No. They did not give us a conflict between two admirable people who each had some flaws. Instead, they turned one of the two into Westerosi Hitler, and I guess want to defend this choice on grounds that it's "realistic."

But it's not. People don't turn into Hitler overnight.

A "realistic" ending would have involved two people, each with incompatible goals -- one to claim a birthright and establish a better world, one who just wants his own land to be free from rule by foreign despot -- but both essentially good. Just unable to compromise.

Turning one of the two into Dragon Fuhrer goes against whatever "gritty, realistic" point George R.R. Martin thinks he was making. It's just a final conflict between Good and Evil, just with the "evil" side being represented by someone who just executed the world's fastest personality change.

Damn, I've seen pro wrestlers foreshadow their impending heel-turn longer than these jokers did in this supposedly "prestige," "realistic" drama.

Nerdrotic, I think, mentioned that Dany had gone from hero to villain faster than Annikin Skywalker. "I will save people from everything, including death" to "brb, out murderin' all the younglings" in about 40 minutes.

Call her Daennykin.

Also: Jon Snow got jealous of Bran Stark getting all the attention for not doing anything at all and decided he would do even more nothing at all.

I mean, except for wearing the Sad and Confused Jon Stark face. Also known more simply as "the Jon Stark Face."

So you're the Prince Who Was Promised?

Promised what? A wedgie?

The Onion comes in for some snark.


'Game Of Thrones' Showrunners Disappointed With How Quality Of Fans Has Dropped Off Over Past Couple Seasons

LOS ANGELES-- Saying their once-beloved viewers have lost much of their luster in recent years, Game Of Thrones showrunners D.B. Weiss and David Benioff acknowledged Friday they have been frustrated with the way fans of the HBO series have declined in quality over the past few seasons.

...

"Nothing [the fans] do makes any sense anymore, and it just seems like they want the show to be over with as quickly as possible. It's pretty sad, to be honest."

Well, having split the fan base with a divisive and poorly thought out epic, what Benioff and Weiss need now is a property with a fully united fan base which won't give them any grief for screwing up a different once-beloved intellectual property.

So on to Star Wars, then!

David Benioff and D.B. Weiss moving to 'Star Wars': In an announcement that hopes to bring together fans of the biggest fantasy series of all time with the biggest sci-fi franchise, the showrunners for "Game of Thrones" will transition to a galaxy far, far away once Disney gets back to releasing new "Star Wars" movies. Assuming the world doesn’t end before the first arrives in 2022, Benioff and Weiss have shown gifts for compression and spectacle in adapting George R.R. Martin’s sprawling novels, but the past few seasons have revealed some big holes in their storytelling game. Maybe there’s a "Star Wars" book someone can write first?

I've got a baaad feeling about this...

and/or:

Here we go again!


What did you guys think? Like the show's producers, I'm just glad it's over so I can move on to more interesting material.

Oh, btw: We Are Real News, Mr. President.

42 Season 8 was the best season. The first few seasons were a cheesefest.
A lot of us saw Dragon Girl for what she was since she burned the witch. Just admit you got suckered by a storytelling trick, and that in retrospect it all makes perfect sense. The list of villains ends with the moral of the story, as CS Lewis puts it

"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience"

54 I think Dany going mad was actually handled really well.

She'd shown signs of incredible viciousness and a complete lack of empathy for pretty much the entire show.

Walking away from her lover in Mereen and feeling nothing for it?

Burning the khals alive instead of just escaping with Jorah?

Watching her brother die coldly?

Sentencing the Tarlies to death when she had great room for letting them live?

How she handled the battle in the previous season? With fire and blood?

She's always been a vicious bloodthirsty cunt. Always. Hey embracing it fully because she knows that she'll never be able to rule out of love? Her understanding that Her picture of herself as the loved queen who inspires adoration? It's what she's wanted, but never had. She's only ever ruled through fear, fire, and blood.

It's alwaysbeen there. She didn't need 10 hours to get there, because she's alwaysbeen just at the precipice.

This sentence has it all wrong. Danerys did not go mad. Jon Snow let the cat out of the bag that he was the rightful king and Danerys new that they would never accept her as a ruler because of it.

She was a woman skorned. That's it, that's all.

121 GoT was a big hit because it was character driven. In hindsight you can say that too much time got invested in too many character arcs

This season turned into a telenovela and then got truly bad as characters got resolved much too quickly and arbitrarily

149 Here's a question I posed on the Twats this morning:

This is supposedly HBO's most successful original series ever. It is also the most expensive.

Why only the six episodes for this season? Was it money? Is it as simple as that? Did the execs at HBO say you have this much money and that only gives you that many episodes and then the writers said okay we have to get all of these plot points in and so instead of characters, exposition it is!

All of the comments I've seen about it, from those who liked it and those who didn't, focus on how rushed this season was. Why the rush? If anything, you would think HBO would want to drag out the season in order to keep those sweet, sweet HBO Now subscriptions active. Is it just money? Or were the writers just that tired of it all? Or maybe both.

I don't get the rushed comment. I three episodes virtually nothing happened.

I think it's around Dany, people think she was good, especially in the most recent seasons, and get turn to evil was quick.

I, as i wrote above, disagree. I think she was evil from the beginning, and people wanted her to be good, papering over her evil in their minds. Her going bad wasn't a huge jump for me. It felt natural.

186 When it comes to actual use of violence, I've never met a woman who would do anything but avoid it at all cost. In most cases, this is personally sensible. If however they are pushed and pushed and pushed to a point where they can no longer avoid it, in my experience most women will then take that violence to an extreme level. It will be wildly overdone. It's a sort of passive-aggressive attitude given physical form.

In that respect I found 'crazy Dany' completely believable. In fact, had she been more moderate in her use of force, I'd have argued that she's acting too much like a man, and was therefore unrealistic.

Had my ex wife had a dragon, I'd be burnt to a crisp right now. If my sister had one growing up, myself, my 2 brothers, and my father would all be dead, and my mother would be chained in a basement somewhere while my sister screamed 'shame' at her through a doorway.

This is how women deal with 'violence'. There is an off switch (the default) and then there is the 'on' switch. There is no 'lightly toasted'.

About that budget thingy, WikiP says that back in '016, HBO made $1.93Billion with a capital B. I don't think they had to worry about a budget very much. I'd also think there's be a fresh team of show runners and writers who'd be jumping at the chance to strut their stuff for one of the most popular TV shows in a while, especially if the book series' storyline had been played out.

201 All of the comments I've seen about it, from those
who liked it and those who didn't, focus on how rushed this season was.
Why the rush? If anything, you would think HBO would want to drag out
the season in order to keep those sweet, sweet HBO Now subscriptions
active. Is it just money? Or were the writers just that tired of it
all? Or maybe both.

Can someone explain to me why someone whose entire career is based in imitating J.R.R. Tolkein also by sheer coincidence happens to have "R.R." as his middle initials? Is it just an affection on Martin's part to steal some of Tolkein's gravitas, or have his middle initials really always been "R.R."?

206 54: Agree. Its been obvious for a long time that Dany wasn't a heroine. And Jon acted, well, like Jon. Hes lacking in guile. Some things didnt make sense. (At Dany's death, the Dothraki would have chosen new khals and gone pillaging, for example). And it's hard to see why Bran would be chosen as king except out of a desire to weaken the monarchy. (FWIW, I dont know why the 6 kingdoms remained United in the end -- they should have split apart)

And you know what...they fucking left. Good for them. I mean, it took Dany dying, but they left. Unlike real life vikings or whatever.

Even I thought it sounded fair to give these fuckers (and the non fucking unsullied) some land as thanks but they said, lol get fuk'd off to whereever.

some folks think the dragon took dany to essos or whererever the remaining hot as shit priestess lives and she'll resurrect her, like the dead hot as shit priestess did to Snow.

220 If they can bring back the retarded Jon Snow they can bring back a chick who had dragon babies whilst on fire.

I actually had this same thought

you could easily do a sequel thingie where she DOES come back semi-believably (in this universe) and I also think her dragon (who was female) probably had some eggs to hatch. So zombie Dany returns with like, 4 dragons

also the Jon Snow thing I was ok with . He was King in the North in the end, which I thought was a sort of prophecy? or maybe it wasn't

269 One good thing about GoT: I learned a heck of a lot about writing from it, and plan to use that knowledge to write stories hopefully far superior. Fingers crossed.

Previous thoughts from earlier today:

It was Hunger Game of Thrones. Ended just like Mockingjay, except Katniss was not punished for killing her mad queen. (Though Jon is not rally punished, gets to go back up north with free folk and a pup that love him.)

The fans that thought they would get a Disney ending for Dany and are petitioning a rewritten season are temper tantrum-ing in vain. GRRM was never gonna write that for you, sweeties. It is known. And I think he will still die before it is finished.

The ending has some lame parts, but it fits with what we saw all the way back in season 1. Terribly rushed writing, but the character arcs do make sense.

For you morons who are fantasy/scifi fans and don't know this work by Gene Wolfe, do yourself a favor and get a copy. You'll find it to be a classic. More than once, it seems like the story line(s) are hanging together by a thread, if that, but the thread turns out to be Niven's indestructible monofiliment.
I've read the whole bloody series about four times now. Weird, absolutely wonderful, and fine, fine prose.

BUT
The dragon balks, won't do the deed because...?
Then Bran and Sansa tell all assembled the facts, call out the Unsullied for letting Danny Sully them by making them murderers of the innocent.

Jon continues to refuse the crown, the 7 kingdoms form a council of 7 to rule. The dragon melts down the throne (hey it was a good idea).
Danny is exiled and ends up dead at the hand of a child (Aria?) and we see that Bran has actually taken possession of the dragon (for the initiated, he has the ability to do that for animals and people) leaving the question, did the Dragon refuse to kill Tyrion and Jon, or did Bran prevent it...

323 A key oversight, IMO, is the death of Barristan Selmy in the tv show. He has not died in the books. And, there is a reason for that. He is/was a source on the decent of the Mad King. He saw it first hand. It was important to him, when he approached Daenerys, that he evaluate whether she possessed the "taint" that the Mad King and Viserys possessed. He decided that she did not.

Since the very fundamental plot line in the finale was mindset of Daenerys, the fact that the writers had dispatched the most important character relative to that plotline (Selmy). I'm not surprised that the story seemed rushed this season.

Also, fan service sucks when you're telling a story. Making a whoring, adulterous, cut throat sell sword the holder of the realm's coin (Bronn of the Blackwater) is just plain over the top. Especially since he chose sides and supported the Lannisters. But, viewers liked the character, so they threw him in there.

351 I like the ending. I thought the series was very good but not spectacular. The battles scenes, however, were spectacular, like nothing I have seen at the theater or in film school.

The main reason I liked the finale, even more the second time, is because it flies in the face of current PC, that girls=good and boys=bad. Dany was pretty and sexy and loved her dragons, so if she burns to death or crucifies hundreds of people she must still be good, right? No. She was bad from the get-go, like when she killed her husband. Why was anyone surprised she smoked Kings Landing?

I thought Bran was a nice compromise, and he was the first character to have POV in the books, so it kind of makes sense. Thank the Lord it was a male. The refusal to surrender to the idiot intersectionality crowd warms my heart and makes me support the show even more.

360 Can someone explain to me why someone whose entire
career is based in imitating J.R.R. Tolkein also by sheer coincidence
happens to have "R.R." as his middle initials? Is it just an affection
on Martin's part to steal some of Tolkein's gravitas, or have his middle
initials really always been "R.R."?

There was a funny SNL skit about that (back in the John Belushi days). The American soldiers kept asking baseball trivia until no one knew the answers - including the guys asking the questions. So they all threw their rifles down and put their hands in the air.

439 I figured the audience doesn't know because Tony will never know if he's got it coming right then, or the next week, or never. But I'm not good at this kind of thing.

The most realistic take I heard is that the show just...ended. That's it. No finale for Tony, no nothing, just the end of the show.

441 "Mellow Yellow" is a damned good album!

"Writer in the Sun." "Sand and Foam." "Bleak City Woman."
"Museum."

The whole thing is grand.

The Biden family is now into importing from China?

You mean something other than graft?

447 And while I made light, and expect Farage to make light/campaign fodder, out of the milkshake attack on him today - there's an incredibly infuriating and dark trend emerging. Major British "news" found the whole thing hilarious. They're mocking Farage for it.

448 What I gather from the comments here is that GoT was devoid of joy or levity. Therefore the characters lacked an essential component of humanity.

453 the judge may have tried to write the thing as a reading of the facts which squeak into the legal rules, which is harder to overrule on appeal. But really...

454 I Claudius is the best historical series ever made. never seen anything come close to that. And the cast was incredible - over time, I've come to think that the best of a a great bunch was a young John Hurt, who played the best Caligula anyone has ever done. He managed to make Caligula funny, charming, intelligent, and entertaining - all while very convincingly being a total psychopath who could kill anyone at any time for the most trivial of reasons.

Now THAT was a great villain!

GoT would have had a winner last night if, right before Tyrion spoke, we jump cut to the throne occupied by Tony Soprano.

@dcexaminer 3 minutes ago

Opposing the ruling by a DC federal judge siding with House Dems, @realDonaldTrump says that they disagree with the ruling and intend on repealing it. The ruling allows the subpoena of Trump's accounting firm for his financial records.
