I got a bigger laugh out of ‘appearing in her professional capacity’ nice callback to a few days earlier where she thinks she can work for the WH and the campaign simultaneously and dodge questions about one job by claiming she’s doing the other.

... which I almost said was last week, but it was probably just earlier Read more

I believe you missed the point in that post. I’m almost certain Manitos was referring to Reagan, and the “Probably a Democrat, right?” was sarcasm.

I haven’t seen this one, but it sounds like Kevin Perjurer’s Defunctland episode is still the better choice for learning about ‘Traction’ Park. While lacking interviews, he doesn’t gloss over how haphazard and dangerous the ride design and implementation process was.

I saw some of these videos recently and greatly enjoyed them. I liked the relaxed style and the lyrical turns of phrase were funny.

I never expected them to be authentic, any more than I expect Postmodern Jukebox to be authentic.

I liked the peek into how medieval music ‘worked’ in this article though. It reminded me Read more

Lena Heady would be nearly tied with Swinton in my list.

There were always a lot of people like this in the military, but it’s gotten a lot worse post 9/11. The lowering of admission standards across the board, so  recruiters could meet quota, and the grinding nature of perpetual deployments, became an ongoing source of mentally traumatized vets who probably shouldn’t have Read more

Just posted from the grays that I’d love an ACAB dlc, where he stops abusive police and frees the unjustly imprisoned. Hell, have him expose and take down an entire corporate prison.

My not so secret wish is an ACAB DLC where Miles takes down abusive police and frees unjustly imprisoned folk.

You did hear Eternia. I also believe the group that sent the message was called ‘the defenders of Castle Grayskull’ or something similar.

Am I the asshole that points out it’s most often Catradora, not Catadora?

I guess, but Old Man Rex would be older than Boba (who was an unaltered clone with none of the growth acceleration)

“release it on schedule digitally.”

Yeah, good call. Real smart. How exactly are they going to do that when the people who set up and maintain the servers are under stay-at-home orders as well? There’s only so much of that work they can do remotely, and if problems crop up they won’t necessarily be able or allowed to Read more

Factories and supply chains don’t magically just start up again. It can take weeks to get all the individual pieces in order. On top of that, the companies have to make decisions about the backlog of orders they didn’t produce while they were down.

The virus may have passed by Sept, but you can be damn sure there’s Read more

I wish Tiger King did a slightly better job at pulling in outside observers for input, but it’s still pretty clear in the show that the only people (falsely) equating the zoos and the rescue are the crazy zoo men who are desperate to keep their way of life going.

No one’s hands are clean in this show, I think Baskin Read more

Also this is a catastrophe we saw coming and had time to prepare for.

Getting paid for it is certainly better, but the extra money doesn’t mitigate the health risks, nor does it change the fact that because of corporate culture, ‘optional’ is effectively ‘mandatory’ when not participating means a higher likelihood of negative consequences down the road.

A theater he clearly booked ahead of time and filled with her family and friends. I don’t consider this a ‘public’ proposal.

While the big family production proposals are similar, I tend to put them in a different ballpark and am generally ok with them when done tastefully.

Agreed, I think he’s a great VP for two reasons-

He ran and tried to get his vision out there. He didn’t succeed, but he made a solid effort.

Graham has the benefit of dying a few decades ago, before he had to deal with times. I miss him as much as anyone, but I wouldn’t be shocked if his worldview had ended up not aging well.
