Trailer Thursdays – August 31

It’s once again time to take a look at some of the trailers that catch my as we look to the future to see what will entertain us in the coming months.

The thing I’m most excited about is PSYCH: THE MOVIE, coming to the USA Network this Christmas. To prepare us for the amazing moments to come, we got a tease earlier this week, as Shawn and Gus get in shape for the big event.

Sticking with TV, The CW released another trailer to promote the upcoming seasons of the network’s DC Comics shows:

We’re a little over a week away from the release of the movie adaptation of Stephen King’s IT. We’re still getting trailers, though.

I don’t know anything about BLADE OF THE IMMORTAL, but the trailer looked cool, and really, what other reason do I need to post something here?

Let’s close this up with the latest trailer for MARVEL’S THE PUNISHER, the next Netflix show for the company. A lot of people are excited about this. I’m not, but I realize I’m in the minority. The release date is still being “redacted,” though.

I’ll let you guys take it from here.

 

  • It’s Thursday.

    • RudoWakening

      This is a correct statement.

    • #Fakenews

    • “No Way Jose” Gomez

      One more day to fall in love

      • Today begins my weekend. Tomorrow I will go see my dad and then my father-in-law will show up. And then, thankfully, I go to work again!

        • “No Way Jose” Gomez

          My weekend starts in about 2.5 hours

  • I think I could still put up trailers in the TDHHR since the ones I restrain from posting don’t seem to cross over with your trailers

  • I still need to give psych a try

  • RudoWakening

    THIRD!

    FIRST FROM WISCONSIN!

  • Matt_InGeeked

    Howdy cowpokes!

  • RudoWakening

    I’ve had “Jive Soul Bro” stuck in my head all week

    • Matt_InGeeked

      You never get nothing in the end.

      • Matt_InGeeked

        ^ These are lyrics to Jive Soul Bro, you see.

    • And now I have “Jive Soul Bro” stuck in my head. Thanks!

    • “No Way Jose” Gomez

      If that song was released today, it would’ve been called “Jive Soul Bruh”

  • Matt_InGeeked

    I did my 30 minutes of Cardio on the bike last night and listened to Prince and Morris Day and The Time.

    It was quite a funky workout.

  • RudoWakening

    I have five boxes to load today and will be receiving zero empties tomorrow or all of next week

  • Matt_InGeeked

    Anybody seen the trailer for “Battle of the Sexes”? Steve Carrell as Bobby Riggs and Emma Stone as Billie Jean King. From Dayton & Ferris (Little Miss Sunshine). Looks like it will be good.

    Emma really looks great as King.

    • The Professor

      I hope it mentions how bobby Riggs threw the match

      • Matt_InGeeked

        Isn’t that sort of speculation and not really 100% proven?

      • Matt_InGeeked

        “Longtime Riggs friend and business associate Lornie Kuhle said he was interviewed for the Outside The Lines story and was upset by the premise Riggs could have thrown the match against King.

        “I looked at (the reporter) and told him it was the most far-fetched
        story I’d ever heard,” Kuhle told the Herald & Review in Decatur,
        Ill. “Why would four mafia guys be in a golf pro shop at midnight? Why is the golf pro in there at midnight? I asked him, ‘Do you believe this (expletive)? I told him if he was looking for a scandal, there’s not one here.

        “It was a real match and he got beat,” Kuhle said. “Bobby didn’t
        purposely throw the match — it’s demeaning to the match and it’s all complete (expletive).””

        Doesn’t sound like it was ever really proven.

        • The Professor

          “Mr. Ragano was emphatic,” Shaw recalls. “Riggs had assured him that the fix would be in — he would beat Margaret Court and then he would go in the tank” against King, but Riggs pledged he’d “make it appear that it was on the up and up.” …

          Finally, Shaw says, the men asked about Riggs’ price for the fix. “Ragano says, ‘Well, he’s going to [get] peanuts compared to what we’re going to make out of this, so he has asked for his debt to be erased.'” Riggs “has also asked for a certain amount of money to be discussed later to be put in a bank account for him in England,” Ragano told the men, according to Shaw.

          ADVERTISING

          After nearly an hour, the four men stood up, shook hands and agreed they’d move forward with Riggs’ proposal, Shaw says.

          • Matt_InGeeked

            Yes, but others have said that meeting never happened.

    • Diddly

      “Emma really looks great”

      Fixed that for you

      • Matt_InGeeked

        Good point.

  • Matt_InGeeked

    • “No Way Jose” Gomez

      As of right now, same here!

    • DAJackson7

      I really thought about taking off tomorrow since i have so much PTO built up. But 1) my job isn’t a drag 2) i have nothing i could go do 3) my wife works from home and would just nag me

      • Matt_InGeeked

        Yeah, I wasn’t going to take Friday off….but I’ve already built up like 90 hours of PTO since I moved here, so I figured why not.

    • The Professor

    • that’s where I live ::high five::

      • Mikey

        ::high five::

  • Matt_InGeeked

    “Browns release Haden”
    “Haden signed to multi-year deal with Steelers”

    Yeah, that sounds about right.

  • Diddly

    A girl I’m talking to is coming to Austin this weekend, but I’ll be in LA

    • ……..I don’t think you guys are going to see each other then

    • Matt_InGeeked

      How cute is the girl?

      • Matt_InGeeked

        Pics or GTFO

        • yeah how hot is she on a scale of 1 to unsuspecting cancer meeting girl

          • Matt_InGeeked

            Unsuspecting cancer meeting girl is probably around 6.8 – 7.2. She’s cute, but not “blow you away” cute.

          • oh I know I saw the picture

          • Matt_InGeeked

            Did you? Most say it was quite difficult.

          • I mean she was hotter than the blue wire

          • Yeah, the blue wire was about a 4.5

          • Matt_InGeeked

            The blue wire will be upset you said that.

          • *shrug*

            I’m not here to protect feelings. Just ask Peyton…

      • Diddly

        She’s a solid 8 but I’m pretty sure she’s only using me to make her ex boyfriend jealous

        • Sometimes you have to take one for the team, sir

        • Matt_InGeeked

          Ain’t nothing wrong with that if you get some snizz outta the deal.

          • Matt_InGeeked

            That’s a gross way of saying it, Matt.

          • I agree with Matt about what Matt said

          • WorldWide Duck

            That’s an awful, vile word.

            “Ain’t.” Gross.

          • Diddly

            Already have!

          • Matt_InGeeked

            My booooooy!

          • Diddly

            That was a few weeks ago when I wanted to humblebrag but was worried NPP would see it

          • Matt_InGeeked

            Fuck NPP. You humblebrag away, son.

          • “No Way Jose” Gomez

            How does one humblebrag?
            .

          • “No Way Jose” Gomez

          • “No Way Jose” Gomez

  • One last bugging here. 2 spots open in my Fantasy Football league draft is Sunday night let me know if you are interested

  • The Professor

    Just watched the trial of tyrion Lannister of Joffreys murder.

    Peter dinkledge is so good when he demands a trial by combat.

    • Matt_InGeeked

      There are some words I understand in this post.

    • ProjectBlue

      He was so good that season. Him and Oberin was amazing as well

      • RudoWakening

        Dinklage is great every season

        • ProjectBlue

          Maureen not so much but that was more his acting partners

    • buckle up for that

  • Night 6 of The Baby sleeping 8+ hours uninterrupted. Most nights have been 9 or 10.

    Very good. Very good.

  • The Professor

    I feel so bad for tyrion when shae turns heel

    • Matt_InGeeked

      I know. Me too.

    • WorldWide Duck

      I grew to legitamitely hate Shea over that season. I was happy that character died.

  • a trailer that should be added to today’s trailers…. Mr. Robot Season 3!!!!!

  • The Professor

    I so bad want the us to add a trial by combat for criminals.

  • That Princess Diana Twitter thing was neat. It’s hard to believe that Twitter could be used for something that doesn’t lower the collective global IQ, but there it is.

    • yeah just don’t read the comments on those posts.

      “Diana is still alive but…..”
      Comment: Naw she aint

  • Diddly

    EFF. My Fantasy League drafted last night. I thought it was next week. Hoooo boy is this team awful.

    • Did you get Bo Jackson?

      • Diddly

        Worse, OJ Simpson!

          * ba dum tis*

  • Matt_InGeeked

    Which news magazine should I subscribe to?

    I feel like being more of an irritating liberal to my friends, family, and neighbors.

    • because that is what the world needs more of

      • Matt_InGeeked

        Only to those around me.

  • Mikey

    Roll Tribe btw. Playing like straight fire.

    • That sweep hurt. Well played.

      • Mikey

        Yankees should still be fine as the Wild Card!

    • Matt_InGeeked

      7 wins in a row! And we won the Yankees series! SHA-BAM!

      • Mikey

        Yeah how awesome right? I was worried we were going to get swept.

        • Matt_InGeeked

          When their bats aren’t working, they aren’t that good.

  • Some day you all are going to give Mr. Robot a try and realize I’ve been right the last couple years

    • Mikey

      Still haven’t seen it.

      • It is critically acclaimed for a reason

    • I won’t.

      • yeah you can assume I am leaving you out of comments like this

    • Diddly

      I like that Stephanie Cornellius chick

      • yeah she is…..impressive

        • Diddly

          Someone posted a bunch of her nude photoshoots on Reddit and… yeah

  • “No Way Jose” Gomez

    I hate these quality alert cards that we have to fill out. The card gives you 5 “whys” to fill out as to why a defect occurred, when half the time it takes 2 or 3

    • Are you required to give 5 reasons?

      • “No Way Jose” Gomez

        Not necessarily. The idea is that it can take up to five “whys” to figure out what the problem is but some of the Section Managers makes it seem like you HAVE to give 5 reasons. And a lot of the time the problem is pretty cut and dry

    • RudoWakening

      Root Cause Analysis bullshit is all it is.

      • Matt_InGeeked

        Yup.

      • “No Way Jose” Gomez

        Pretty much. It’s almost like a documentation version of Mindy from Animaniacs (the little girl with that dog)

    I haven’t seen Major League in a long time. Maybe I’ll watch that some time this week. That movie really gets Cleveland in the 80’s absolutely right from the opening.

    • Mikey

      That downtown landscape is fucking depressing.

  • RudoWakening

    The White Sox have the second-worst record in baseball.

  • Matt_InGeeked

    Buster Olney says the Indians win the World Series.

    Bold fucking prediction. But we do have the rotation and the depth. I don’t know who beats the Dodgers 4 times though.

    • Matt_InGeeked

      Although, it looks like the Dodgers have lost 4 straight, so maybe they aren’t an invincible as previously thought.

  • Madhav

    Got my blood test results. Apparently I have a higher red blood cell count than normal, and also have a higher MCH (average amount of hemoglobin per red blood cell) than normal.

    I bought a new pair of Vans shoes yesterday for my trip to LA. True White Classic. I haven’t had a pair of white shoes in over a year since my last pair were trashed out.

    Still need to buy new dress shoes and another pair of casual shoes when I return.

    • I bought white shoes a couple of times in the early 2000’s.

  • What is WAR?

    • Matt_InGeeked

      What a deep question.

      What, in fact, is WAR?

    • “No Way Jose” Gomez

      It’s a funk band from the ’70s but that’s not important

      • DAJackson7

        I rode with a scout one summer….it is A LOT like that

    • Mikey

      Wins Above Replacement. Basically how many wins a player adds to your team if he was replaced with replacement level player that is bad.

      • Matt_InGeeked

        So….nonsense.

        • Mikey

          No, it’s a great all encompassing stat.

    • WorldWide Duck

      How much better the players statistics are than an average player at their position.

      i.e. “Our first baseman hit 25 home runs this year!”

        All she said was if you are for government staying out of your business, you should be pro-choice. Everything else she says is fucking disgusting.

        • WorldWide Duck

          Pro choice is pretty great for a Republican talking head.

          Good for her for being willing to disagree with her party on some issues. If only more on both sides of the aisle would follow suit, we’d be a happier country.

          • Matt_InGeeked

            I agree with that. I actually don’t care much for the medicare-for-all plan being touted by Sanders and Harris. I don’t like the quickness with which they believe they can change healthcare. It’s way more complicated than it needs to be.

            “let’s fight endless wars” is not merely a disapproved opinion.

          • WorldWide Duck

            It’s an OPPOSING opinion editorial. You aren’t supposed to agree with it. You politely hear them out and disagree.

          • Madhav

    • I hate dishwasher politics. At my last job I made a point of not ever using it because I wanted to always be able to absolve myself of the arguments about who was loading, unloading, running, whatever. Mister_E has never put a dish into it, nor taken a dish out of it. Mister_E doesn’t care about your drama.

      At this job we have an assistant who is responsible for it.

        • More like “I have no particular education or relevant skills, but I’d like a decent 9-5 office job that pays relatively well.”

          Interviewer: “Ok, we need someone to issue certificates, pull files, and do other odd jobs. You’re hired.”

      Why’s that?

      • Why is he a saint? Because for myself, and I suspect many others, I would never invite an addict into my home to lie to me over the course of many months. Particularly one that I wasn’t even related to. I respect that he did that.

        Why did I only just watch it? Because I don’t watch much TV.

        Right if there’s anyone whose voice is being silenced it’s Silicon Valley billionaires.

        • WorldWide Duck

          That’s why they identify who is making the case and usually have someone arguing for online privacy on the other half of the page.

  • people seem politically tense this morning

    • Unlike all the other days when people keep their strong opinions to themselves and try to find a middle ground?

  • WorldWide Duck

    When interleague play was introduced in 1994 they had Keith Olbermann write an op-ed against the concept while the other side of the page had Bud Selig writing an opinion for it.

    • Brian_Bayless

      Bud Selig was one shitty commissioner.

      • WorldWide Duck

        He ruined a ton of things.

        • Brian_Bayless

          Absolutely. He also caused the sport to lose mass appeal

          • WorldWide Duck

            World Series and ASG lost their specialness.

          • Brian_Bayless

            The league also was non-competitive in general. Its why we have fire sales every trading deadline.

    • Matt_InGeeked

      Interleague play sucks.

      • WorldWide Duck

        Curse of Olbermann.

        He’s technically right, but he makes a case in such a manner you don’t want to be on his side.

      • Miko363

        Someone please explain to me why half the teams play with different rules than the other half. In what other sport would this be remotely acceptable?

        • Devin Harris

          They were actually separate entities until a few years ago. Like two different companies

        • WorldWide Duck

          It’s be acceptable if they only met twice a year.

    • Mikey

      I’m an asshole, nvm. It was introduced in 94 but started in 97

  • Devin Harris

    Baseball used to do it right. No reward for sucking. Top two teams play for the pennant. Then those winners play for the belt. Wild card is just a Canadian term for not good enough

    • The Polish Hammer

      IT’S NOT A BELT, IT’S A TITLE!

      • Devin Harris

        scratch that. I mean CHAMPIONSHIP

    • Mikey

      There are so many teams it’d be tough to do that now. At least they’re not letting everyone in like the NBA and NHL

      • Devin Harris

        I don’t care. If 22 teams are out of it by August who cares? Nothing wrong with just watching the pennant races. I still say ’93 with SF and Atl duking it out is the best one of my generation. Both won 100 games but one team had to stay home.

        • DAJackson7

          And that is probably why they had the wild card the next year. hahahha

          • Devin Harris

            I think it took something out of the Braves. They completely stunk it up against Philly

          • Mikey

            That Philly team had an incredible amount of hillbillies on it.

          • DAJackson7

            That Phillies team would have fit in better in Atlanta. hahahahahaha

          • Devin Harris

            I don’t even think it’s legal to be that redneck in sports anymore

          • Mikey

            Nope, you’re not seeing another team like that one lol.

            Holy crap their aren’t ten non-white guys on that team

        • Mikey

          I was just getting into baseball at that age and have a small memory of that season. IIRC, Matt Williams was crying after the season was done.

          • Devin Harris

            I honestly think they would have won it all. That was a heck of a team

          • Mikey

            Bonds, Williams, Will Clark was still there. They were stacked.

          • Devin Harris

            Pitching wasn’t bad either. I think Nen was the closer and he was one of the best. Had a good starting rotation too with Burkett and the gang

    • Did we come up with wild cards? I dunno, it sounds exciting.

    • Brian_Bayless

      The MLB draft is a scam too. Foreign talent should be included and players dictate where they go for the most part.

      • DAJackson7

        Yes!!! They freaking need an international draft in the worst way

      • Devin Harris

        Then you wouldn’t have the fun of MLB signing foreigners like they are slave labor

        • WorldWide Duck

          Those bidding wars are fucking absurd.

          • Devin Harris

            The Japanese players have bidding wars. The Latin guys get lent and sand for all their troubles.

          • WorldWide Duck

            Depending on the type of Latin it gets out of hand real fast too.

          • Mikey

            I thought with Daisuke, they would finally amend that. But here we are over 10 years later.

        • Brian_Bayless

          And players should have to declare before the draft, none of this shit about going back to school if the Padres will draft you

    • DAJackson7

      H,,,. they only did that for 24 years…..Wild Card has been going on for 23…yep. Math checks out

    • The Polish Hammer

      They figured out they can make more money by playing more games. Same thing with hockey. Used to be that the early playoff rounds were best of three. Then they expanded to best of five. Now every series is best-of-seven and they don’t get around to the Stanley Cup finals until June.

    • I get why they changed it though I mean this keeps people invested longer because more teams have a chance up till the end.

  • Miko363

    The only good thing about interleague play with no DH is watching John Farrell embarrass himself with his complete inability to grasp the rules.

    Petco park really seems to have killed the Padres franchise. I mean they’re stupid as shit and have had terrible management, but why would you wanna go to that park if you’re a hitter.

    • Tranquilo Baby Tranquilo

      You can make the same argument that Citizen’s Bank should have killed the Phillies.

      • Mikey

        It didn’t though.

        • Tranquilo Baby Tranquilo

          Exactly. Stadiums don’t kill teams.

        • RudoWakening

          I can’t wait for something to finally kill the Phillies for good

          • DAJackson7

            They didn’t win a World Series till 1980….that in itself is hilarious enough to me. Just sad the first time they got good was when the A’s were floundering so the A’s had to go

          • Tranquilo Baby Tranquilo

            The A’s have traditionally been the cheapest team in professional sports (outside of the bengals), who somehow would catch lightning in a bottle ever 20 years or so.

        Beautiful Park

    • WorldWide Duck

      I think constantly decking themselves out in Army colors when they are in a gigantic Navy city isn’t helping.

      • Marv

        Nah it’s cool Marines love the Army there’s no rivalry at all.

      • There are army cities and navy cities?

        • WorldWide Duck

          San Diego is a gigantic Navy base city because it’s at the very southwestern coast. It’s pretty much the entry point for the Pacific islands.

        • Marv

          Yeah depending on what base is there, sure. San Diego has several major Navy bases and the west coast Marine Corps boot camp is there too.

          No one in San Diego is from San Diego. It’s not uncommon at San Diego Padre games to see more away team gear than home team gear. It’s kind of fun if you watch your own team play there because it’s basically like seeing a home game in a different city.

          • Interesting.

          • WorldWide Duck

            When I lived in San Diego for a few years my circle of friends included one person actually from there.

      • DAJackson7

        Also continuing to double down on being a navy and white colored team when everyone wants some form of brown to come back

    • Marv

      That park is very strange. They wanted to go for the “park is part of a mall” feel but they just did it all wrong.

      • DAJackson7

        The home plate side which is directly next to….nothing. That is very weird to me both times i went

          It’s become some weird inside joke where I never see NY parks. Last year I was in the bar connected to the park and still never quite made it in the door.

          It keeps me having an excuse to go back!

  • WorldWide Duck

    Petco wasn’t even the worst stadium in San Diego. Qualcomm was an atrocity.

    • Matt_InGeeked

      Petco is where the pets go.

  • Marv

    Petco is definitely one of the strangest parks in the country. It’s a park where you can tell the main focus in the building wasn’t baseball but more the “fun outdoor atmosphere.” They were like ok let’s build shops and a dog park and some apartments and a nice esplanade and….oh shit we should cram in a place to play baseball too…

    • You home?

    • Marv

      The new Atlanta park is definitely the same way only rather than just the park they built an entire neighborhood

    • DAJackson7

      I swear the last time i went the dog park had more people in it than Petco before the game started

  • What up bitches?

    • Matt_InGeeked

      I’ve said it every day since Monday, but my 4-day weekend starts today at 3:00pm!

      • Fuck you.

        also, I just had an involuntary 5 day weekend. I was sick for 3 days. It was weird.

        I sometimes have this thing I think of as heartburn or acid reflux (though I have no idea if that’s what it actually is) that happens when I eat too much too late. Sun night I had beef ribs at home for dinner, and later indulged in some candy. I woke up a few times throughout the night having issues with bile and vomit, including once where I was literally choking on it. Not fun. Had real trouble breathing, and that led into a shortness of breath on Mon, Tues & Wed. I thought I was going into work Wed am, but just taking a fucking shower made me feel run down and out of breath. I went to a Fastcare local clinic hoping to avoid a trip to the ER. I think she almost made me go, but instead prescribed prednisone. I’m already on advair and I have an inhaler; have for years, but before this happened, I was BARELY using the inhaler because of my weight loss. Not sure what this was that kicked my ass, and it’s happened a few times before, but it was less than pleasant.

        • Matt_InGeeked

          Geez. Sorry man, that sucks.

          • Thanks. Definitely better today, but not quite normal. I don’t expect I’ll do much over the next few days.

    I haven’t been to many baseball stadiums.

    The Jake. The old Three Rivers (Pittsburgh…woof). The old Riverfront (Cincy…woof).

    That’s about it.

    • Marv

      At this point all I have left is the new Marlins park and both stadiums in New York.

      • Matt_InGeeked

        Wow man, that is so cool that you have been able to do all of those stadiums.

        So you’ve even been to the ones in Texas?

        • Marv

          Yep. They’re both pretty bland which fits for the cities they’re in.

          • Marv

            It is fucking stunning man, that park is what baseball at its most spiritual.

          • Matt_InGeeked

            Which is funny, because that town is an absolute shithole.

          • Marv

            Its one of my favorite cities in the country. No delusions there. No one crows about how “we’re just the very best city and don’t mention one little thing wrong with it because it’s the best best best best.” None of that crap.

  • These are the two guys who thought hey.. Lord of the flies with all chicks is a great idea https://media.vanityfair.com/photos/59a803d0f358a4739555d46f/master/w_960,c_limit/GettyImages-156862615.jpg
    no seriously…those are the guys making it

    • Matt_InGeeked

      I enjoyed the book and the book still exists, so it won’t ruin my childhood or anything.

      • So says Matt!

      • no not at all just… this comes of as an SNL parody of what hollywood is like today. This is a bad 30 rock skit

    • Marv

      Wow those property brothers got way older. And gayer.

    • Diddly

      They look like this is a movie they’re making to impress a feminist girl that will never love them

  • Marv

    “Calling all aspiring young actresses, do you have what it takes to play Piggy?”

    Yes this will go very well indeed.

    • DAJackson7

      I once had a FWB we called Miss Piggy…the resemblance was uncanny

  • Mikey

    Boss just e-mailed me asking when I was planning on working Saturday and I told him I wasn’t.

  • Diddly

    New SH Figuarts Star Wars toys announced! Last Jedi Rey! Last Jedi Kylo! And more!

    • Matt_InGeeked

      And you nailed a solid 8 a few weeks ago?

      …..Hmmm.

      • Dwayne

        I hear lots of guys are into that stuff.

      • Diddly

        You’d be surprised at the amount of women who think a LEGO Millennium Falcon is cool! I’ve slept with, umm, both girls that have seen it!

  • Marv

    “We knew the name Piggy would never play in 2017 so we changed the characters name to Pansy. It has the same effect because a Pansy is one of the least pretty flowers and it starts with the letter P so our fans will understand where we’re going.”

    • Instead of being a heavy, ugly, nerd type she will definitely just be a hot young actress with a pair of glasses on.

      • Macklin JeriPratt

        That’s what nerds look like now, don’t they?

      • Marv

        LOL right? Gosh yeah she’s only got c cups what a dog

        • Diddly

          “Her butt is big! Eww!”

    • It’s like you are there in the room with them

      • Marv

        I can’t wait for Edna to get home she is going to go berserk about this

    • “in the end we decided to make them all strong powerful female characters!. the divide is some label themselves feminists and some do not. But all of them are strong and independent”

  • Marv

    “At the start of the book the pilot dies on the beach, leaving the girls alone to attempt to survive. The pilots death marks both the end of adult leadership and reminds all the girls of their terrible fathers who were never there for them. The first hour of the movie the girls realize that they don’t need a man they’re strong and independent. It’s a story about girls overcoming gender norms and figuring out that they can make fire too.”

    • In the end they stay on the island because they have made a utopia and don’t want to go back to the evil real world

      • Oh yeah, Utopia. That’s the natural state of a bunch of unsupervised tween girls.

  • What’ is great is this movie appeals to no one. Feminists are crapping on it on twitter and such so you aren’t winning over that group… the other side of that equation won’t go see it and everyone in the middle are equally… this makes no sense

  • Marv

    “We have to work together. If we don’t make it off this island none of us are going to see our sweet sixteen party.”

  • Marv

    “Hey I figured out how to feel really good inside all it takes is some candle light, a private part of the jungle and a big plantain.”

  • Sits back rubbing hands together::: this has all gone gloriously to plan as soon as I saw that headline

    • Marv

      The premise is just so fucking silly.

  • Matt_InGeeked

    This white chicken chili is the tits.

    • Today I have shepherd’s pie made with ground turkey, and mashed cauliflower instead of potato.

  • Also from my update. F Serkis getting an oscar nom for rolling around in green tights and having a 100 animators flesh out a performance

    • Marv

      I never quite understood why he was the god of CGI. He is unpleasant to look at he should be thanking his stars that CGI exists so he can get into movies in the first place.

      • I think he is good at what he does but they have soured it by making him to be this laurence olivier of playing animals and monsters in a ping pong ball suit

    • Matt_InGeeked

      Meh, a guy being nominated for an award from his peers or the press doesn’t really matter to me as hollywood just loves to give awards to itself and love itself. None of it really means anything.

      • …….well fine if you want to be a kill joy about it

  • Marv

    I’m trying to think of a good parallel for this, like some story where the cast being women was a key part of the plot and coming up with nothing.

    • THATS THE PROBLEM MARV!

    • all male steel magnolias?

      • DAJackson7

        That is the only one i can think of

  • Diddly

    Ralph = Rachel (played by Jennifer Lawrence)

    Piggy = Petunia (played by Emma Watson)

    Jack = Jane (played by Margot Robbie)

    Simon = Sarah (played by Zoe Saldana)

    Roger = Rebecca (played by Selena Gomez)

    Sam and Eric = Stephanie and Elizabeth (played by Anna Kendrick and Aubrey Plaza)

    Littluns = various Disney Channel actresses

    Navy Officer that rescues the kids and degrades them for their lawlessness: Halle Berry

    Dead pilot = some male actor

    • Matt_InGeeked

      And Andy Serkis as the bonfire.

      • ProjectBlue

        You joke, but the 14 months he’d spend staring into a fire to master it? Awe inspiring!

  • Facts

    AN ALL FEMALE LORD OF THE FLIES?

    HAVE THEY NOT READ THE BOOK?!?!?!??!!!??!!?!??!?!?!?!?!

  • WorldWide Duck

    Exactly how old are they planning on these females to be. They could very well miss the other point of the book!

    • Marv

      They’ll all be 35 but playing 15. They’re going to make poor Emma Watson do a high school graduation scene again

      • WorldWide Duck

        And that’s still too old!

        My big takeaway was that these were like 8-10 year olds and the capacity for war is in us from birth. I think I’d actually be more annoyed at aging the characters than gender swapping them.

        • Marv

          Yeah the whole idea is that children are fucking animals.

          • WorldWide Duck

            Like even if it’s a bunch of 7-10 year old girls, that would still be workable.

            But it’s like “Teenagers turning into violent factions? Oh no!”

          • Marv

            It’s going to be a very very very unsubtle Hunger Games rip off I’m sure.

      • I think every kid on that island was 13 and under.

    • ProjectBlue

      ANOTHER Lolita remake? I guess Susan Sarandon needs the work

  • Facts

    LOL a bunch of catty bitches stranded on an island and yeah they are definitely going to put a pig’s head on a stick. LOL.

  • Marv

    Oh jesus she’s shoving the conch in there again, didn’t we make a rule about leaving her alone with the conch?

  • Diddly

    Oh god imagine a montage of the girls building a hut and campfire set to California Girls

  • Marv

    “She just won’t quit sweeping the hut I told her the floor is dirt she’s never going to be done sweeping but she just keeps on going…”

  • Matt_InGeeked

    I have a daughter. Maybe I’m being a madhav here, but I don’t see the problem with female versions of male books or movies. If they want to make an all-male Babysitter’s Club movie, I’m all for that too.

    • Diddly

      But the story would have to change because a male babysitter would rape the kid he’s babysitting!

      • Matt_InGeeked

        ….what?

        • Diddly

          That’s how a male babysitter would be portrayed!

    • ProjectBlue

      Eh, I’d at least like to see a trailer before lighting my torches.

    • WorldWide Duck

      I’m very much more concerned with aging than gender swapping.

    • Marv

      It’s silly and heavy handed and only reinforces the idea that girls only get their version of stuff made for guys.

      I didn’t much like Hunger Games but at least it was designed for girls, it was their thing. This is taking something for boys, making it a lot shittier and passing it off like they’re doing someone a favor.

      • Matt_InGeeked

        I guess. There’s way more roles like helpless Bella in the goddamn twilight movies than there are strong Katnis movies though.

        • Marv

          This will be an entire movie of helpless Bellas.

          • Matt_InGeeked

            Maybe so.

        • Mikey

          Bella was pretty terrible.

        • Then to go along with what Marv says make a story of girls stranded. Don’t take a very specific story that is very specific to being about boys stranded and make it all girls

      • ProjectBlue

        What I never get is why tie it to the original, just make it Chick Island or whatever, same story, no baggage. Using Hunger Games again, they didn’t call it Battle Royal (or whatever the author hacked it off of). Less issues

        • Matt_InGeeked

          They think because it’s “based on the book” it will do better.

          • ProjectBlue

            True though that seems to be less and less a positive marketing spin these days and just reason for people to go nuts.

        • Marv

          Oh because it’s not breaking ground and making a statement unless we understand that it’s an all female version of something that came before.

          If it was just a movie it would be…just a movie. That’s no good. It’s important we understand how revolutionary this is, to sacrifice plot for gimmick.

    • Gender swapped remakes are a pretty lazy idea. It’s so hard to write interesting female parts that all we can do is find interesting male parts and then remake them with females.

      • Matt_InGeeked

        Now that I agree with. It is quite lazy.

        But Hollywood is quite lazy….with the remakes, redo’s, sequels, etc.

        • And I just don’t see any real value to something like that. It seems like girls chasing what the boys have instead of doing their own thing.

          A story of stranded girls might be interesting, especially if they show the potential sociological differences (good AND bad) of what an all female society might look like. But calling it a remake is dumb, and especially if they just retell the same basic story but all the boys happen to have vaginas, then that’s really dumb. Granted we don’t know that it would be a flat retelling, I’m just saying that if it is then that’s dumb.

          • Marv

            It’s that first paragraph that gets me. I’m all about girls having their own thing I think that’s very important. Their thing shouldn’t be a shitty version of a boys thing though. “Honey I know you like playing with your brothers Lego so I got you some of your own Lego only a lot of the pieces don’t fit, some of them are melted and they only combine to make ovens and vacuums never a car or plane. K, we good now right?”

      • RudoWakening

        I want an gender swapped Inglorious Basterds

  • Mikey

    That was one of my favorite books from my Honors English III class in High School.

    • Marv

      It’s a tremendous book.

    • Dwayne

      I read it in High School too

      • ProjectBlue

        I’m preeeetty sure I’ve read it but it may just be a cultural osmosis type thing where it’s been referenced and ripped off enough times I’ve gotten it through that.

    • Matt_InGeeked

      I read it in Junior High. Still probably in my top 30 books.

    • chicagodem79

      I hated reading books in school lol. I always cheated and got either Cliff’s Notes or tried to skim it. I never really have been much of a fiction reader, and really the only time I started to enjoy books were George Orwell books, which had a political point, which I DID have interest in.

      • ProjectBlue

        I hated being told WHAT to read, always had outside books on me I’d dive into the second a teacher lost control (nerrrrrrrrd)

      • Mikey

        Some books I fell in love with. I remember reading Gatsby twice in the period that our class read it once.

        • ProjectBlue

          Was huge on Catcher in the Rye as a teen, damned school never had us read it

    • Diddly

      We got to watch the 1950s movie afterwards too!

      I remember being disappointed in the Piggy Death scene

  • WorldWide Duck

    I wouldn’t mind gender swaps of characters in stories where the gender dynamics are integral to the plot.

    Like if A Star is Born is remade with an aging woman and a young male, that would be interesting.

  • Marv

    I’d be interested to see what the American Revolutionary War would look like with an all female army. They should make that movie.

    • Best_in_the_World

      They’d bring a fresh new perspective to the term red coats

    For like a year there my wife was saying “cray cray” a lot and it made me gnash my teeth and drool like Chunk. To stop her I went on a long tirade about how everything couldn’t be cray cray that left no room for stuff that was just normally crazy and that there should be a demarcation between stuff that is actually crazy and just regular crazy. So I came up with the word craygular to describe stuff that is regularly crazy and when she’d say something was cray cray I’d ask if it was really cray cray or just craygular. She never says cray cray anymore I don’t know what happened we were having so much fun.

          I just can’t get into Daredevil. I’ve tried watching episode 2 about 17 times. It’s taken me 6 months, and I’m still halfway through the 2nd episode.

          • Perhaps the shows aren’t for you then. You still may give Jones a try though

      My GF is OCD about organization, so one of my favorites is intentionally putting something back in the wrong place and saying “I forgot about it”.

    • Marv

      That doesn’t work so well after a kid and you learn to completely shut down at a moments notice. Now I save it for the morning, usually by making sure to share whatever horrible song is in my head from the moment of waking and making sure she takes it to work with her. This morning was “WHERE WOMEN GLOW AND PLUUUUUNDER, CAN’T YOU HEAR, CAN’T YOU HEAR THE THUNDER” but just that part over and over and over while she showered. I guarantee she’s thought of it at least 10 times this morning and hated me more every time.

      George Bateman turned into George Batman after he and Jason had a falling out. Then it became Batman when George’s head got too big due to his popularity.

    Why are there TWO Captain Marvels?

    • There are, like, four or five…

    • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

      I’m still sad the first Captain Marvel lost his name. Shazam is the wizard, dammit.

      • That whole thing is my favorite example of corporate stupidity.

        • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

          I kinda love how Captain Marvel Jr still has the same name somehow.

          • The whole Marvel family is gone now. There’s no trace of them in the current universe

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            Really? That’s sad. They’ll always be a sentimental favorite of mine.

  • Miko363

    Lakers fined $500k for tampering with Paul George. That’ll show ’em!

    Is Wally West the comic character as bad as Wally West the TV Character?

    • Dwayne

      I haven’t read a ton of Flash, but i’ve read more about Wally than Barry. I liked him.

    • WorldWide Duck

      Wally is much better than Barry in the comics.

      • Mikey

        Neither are any good on the show.

    • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

      Wally West the comic character was great. He was largely defined by trying to live up to his idea of Barry Allen as a saint and strugglinh with his own human frailties.

      • WorldWide Duck

        Justice League Year One Barry was great.

        Not a complete saint, but a solid, trustworthy Midwestern guy.

        • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

          That was a great rendition of him. He was never a perfect guy, but a very good one who genuinely loved being a superhero and treated everyone well.

          One of my favorite things was how the original Rogues actually liked him and hated Reverse Flash for genuinely wanting to hurt him. It was a nice twist on standard hero and villain fare.

      • Mikey

        That sounds like a good character. Better than barry.

  • Started season 2 of Angel last night. Shame Andy Halleck (guy who played Lorne) is dead.

    • He was a talented guy. Very sad

      • Yup. I wasn’t really fond of the quality of his voice, but he could sing. Nailed that role too.

    • Mikey

      Damn you’ve flown by me! Still on Season 1 of Angel. This show really is great. I forgot how much I loved Season 1.

      • Pretty much all Mrs Hoss and I watch together right now is Buffy, angel, and Master chef. Waiting on new seasons, I guess.

    • Matt_InGeeked

      Hallett. And he died at 33. Crazy.

      • Mikey

        Something with his heart right? Really sad.

        • Matt_InGeeked

          Yep. Some heart disease. I remember when I reported that on my site back in ’08. I remember the year because it was one of the last posts on my site.

      • WorldWide Duck

        Will you be giving us some easily googleable and yet wildly inaccurate factoids as part of these comments?

        • Marv

      • Well… maybe…

  • RudoWakening

    T-minus 6h 44m until the goddamn Buckeyes are back!

  • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

    I’ve been watching Iron Fist lately and it’s not good, but I enjoy it. I think I just like superheroes kinda grounded. Like, not too much power or anything.

    • Finally finished Redbreast. it was really good ..started nemesis

      • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

        YAY! The Redbreast – Devil’s Star run is incredible. Nemesis has some really good plot twists.

        • I was feeling overwhelmed with all the foreign WW2 names and confused identities but it all worked out in the end

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            Redbreast was a bit scattered. The books get tighter afterwards. Redbreast sets up a lot that pays off in later books.

    • Marv

      My biggest ish with him is that the powers come and go whenever the plot demands it. I fucking haaaaaaaate when they pull that shit with superheroes.

      • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

        Oh. I haven’t watched enough to see that yet. I’m only on the second episode and even though that happened once, I just thought he was going to keep his power now.

        • Marv

          It’s still happening in Defenders it’s fucking awful. It’s just part of his character apparently, he only has the Fist when the plot really really really really needs him to have the fist.

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            That sounds incredibly stupid. I would never defend these shows as good, though. Maybe Daredevil, but that’s mostly due to them using the best stuff from over the years.

          • Dwayne

            DD and Jones were the best ones. Cage had some cool stuff, but the story went off the rails by mid season.

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            Yeah. I still liked Cage a lot because of the Wu-Tang and Gang Starr references. And Rosario Dawson is my favorite character in all the shows.

            DD is really good. Next season is rumored to be Born Again!

          • Dwayne

            I enjoyed a lot of the stuff Cage did but I liked Cottonmouth as the main villain. When they switched to the other dude, it wasn’t as fun. The music they used on the show was by far the best out of the Marvel Netflix shows.

          • Marv

            The guy that plays Cottonmouth is just such a fucking tremendous actor even if the character for the second half was better (which it wasn’t by far, that evil brother storyline was booty) it wouldn’t have mattered anyway because Ali already stole the show.

      • Dwayne

        There is all types of cool things he can do with his chi powers but the show didn’t really get into that much. You rarely saw the actual Iron Fist.

        • Marv

          The best Iron Fisting in the whole show (and Defenders) is *still* that short clip of the World War II era Iron Fist whipping Nazi asses.

          Danny Rand fucking suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuucks

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            The old Iron Fists are fun in the comics.

          • Marv

            The guy in the short clip you’ll see is using two glowing fists and spinning around and WHIPPING ASS and it’s so fucking cool.

            Danny has yet to do anything even close in his own show or Defenders. I want to see 1940s Iron Fist he looked awesome.

          • Dwayne

            Remember the one that charged his guns with chi power? He was great.

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            Yes!! That was one of my favorite things in that series! That and the awesome martial arts tournament with all the cool opponents.

          • Dwayne

            Hell yeah. I want to go back and read that series again.

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            Now I do, too!

    • Dwayne

      I wish they did it like Immortal Iron Fist. Have you read that series? It was fantastic.

      • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

        The Matt Fraction/Ed Brubaker one? That was GREAT!!

        • Dwayne

          Exactly. So good.

          • Casual_Kenny_Reigns

            We always like the exact same books!

    • Mikey

      The actor playing him is pretty fucking bad IMO

      • Dwayne

        I don’t like the actors in that show besides Rosario. The one that plays Colleen is ok.

        • Marv

          I’m pretty over Colleen. I never cared about her story and she’s a big part of Defenders.

          And I love Rosario but it IS weird that suddenly she’s fighting Hand members like she took ninja classes when she got her nursing degree.

  • RudoWakening

    Frida is going to take Xannie in the store and let her pick out a new toy today. She has promised me video.

    • Marv

      Yay! God the people at the pet store must go apeshit when she comes in.

      • Matt_InGeeked

        They would go pigshit.

      • RudoWakening

        Frida works at a feed and pet supply store so everybody already loves her. What’s great is that customers bring her fruits and veggies ALL THE TIME which saves us monies. Then those customers tell their friends and they come specifically to meet her

        • Marv

          Haha that’s awesome! She’s a draw!

          • RudoWakening

            People that don’t even have pet showed up to her birthday party! And they brought her presents!

      • It won’t be.

        • Marv

          It might be. There’s a lot of source material to pull from and Berenthal single-handedly elevated that character so it’s got the potential.

          • But if they insist on another 13-episode season, I think it’ll run the risk of straining the lengths of a single arc. Punisher is really best in short bursts

    Only the $1000 front row seats for the Iliza Schlesinger and other people I don’t care about Hurricane Relief Show are sold out! I could still drop $350 and get access to the pre show VIP meet and greet but not the post show party!

    • Facts

      Iliza Schlesinger was born in Dallas, TX to a Reform Jewish family. So, she’s a Texas Jew?

      • Blackjack Jowalsen

        There are Jews in Texas. The grocery store by my brother’s house has a kosher section and everything.

        • Facts

          I haven’t seen any here out in West Texas.

      • Diddly

        The Dallas part explains why she so fiiiiiiiiiiiiine

        HIGH FIVE FOR TEXAS WOMEN!

  • Matt_InGeeked

    I’m out! yaaaay

    • Mikey

      Get blacked!

    • The Polish Hammer

      Wonderful!
      Just remember that we still accept you so who you are, regardless of your sexual preference.

  • How much money would a fairly rad TV cost? Could you do it for less than $1,000? I know that you can get them way less than that, but I want a rad one. One that people look at and say “hey, that’s a rad TV you’ve got there.”

    • $750

    • The Polish Hammer

      I got a 55″ 4K smart TV for $500. It’s rad enough.

    • DAJackson7

      Yeah you can do it for way less. 4k isn’t really needed, but if so it’s still better than having to pay for 3d which is worthless. You could probably get a great 60 inch for 750 bucks

      • Miko363

        According to my tech geek brother who knows much more than me, 4K is not that much more discernible to the naked eye to justify the price jump. Just get a standard HDTV at that point. The new features in more expensive TVs like High Dynamic Range, however, do create a noticeable difference.

        Samsung has a great Smart TV interface, in my opinion. It’s very intuitive.

        • DAJackson7

          I don’t care if a tv is a smart tv, i usually have better luck letting my ps4 play apps and whatnot

          • Miko363

            Yeah different things work for different people and what you’re using. This just lets me bounce between cable (I’m not a cord-cutter), Netflix, Plex, etc. with one button push.

          • This is why I won’t bother with a smart TV. My PS4 does all of that for me, plus games.

    • Miko363

      Won’t be top of the line, but you can definitely get a really good one in the $500 to $1000 range depending on the size.

    So happy we’re getting more Psych. Hopefully it’s better than the final season was

    • It won’t be.

      • Macklin JeriPratt

        Hopefully it’s not worse than the final season.

        • That’s a better bar to set.

          • Macklin JeriPratt

            I’ll just say this: hopefully it features Shawn and Gus and I’ll be happy.

          • You know what I’m hoping for? That the Psych movie in December gets someone to put the damned show back on Netflix before the movie happens.

          • Macklin JeriPratt

            Me too dammit. I own the whole show on DVD but Netflix is so much easier.

          • I refuse to buy it on DVD. I heard the packaging was chintzy.

          • Macklin JeriPratt

            I don’t know what chintzy means but I have no complaints about the packaging. The picture quality on some of the older episodes suffers though which is probably a more damning shortcoming.

          • ProjectBlue

            chintzy hasn’t gone west? Cheap, lousy, underwhelming

  • WorldWide Duck

    I think I’m going to leave work five or six hours early tomorrow.

    When you think you want to move to Bermuda but find the average house costs 1.6 million dollars……fuck

    • It’s difficult to move there is my understanding. They aren’t particularly interested in people moving in. Even if you marry someone from there it’s a lengthy waiting period before you can apply for citizenship.

      • Miko363

        They probably got sick of people coming down there and singing the Beach Boys “Kokomo” every fucking time they have one too many pina coladas.

      • DAJackson7

        Becoming a citizen would be eh….i mean find work first, then move. But hell it would suck if you live in a shit hole. Time to find somewhere else.

        • I know a couple of Bermudians and one of my brothers did a few months at a research station there and I’ve visited. If you haven’t been, it’s a really boring, conservative place, and I wouldn’t want to live there anyhow.

          • DAJackson7

            That’s the best part…..It’s like the backwoods small town of islands!

          • It definitely is.

    • chicagodem79

      GET OFF MY STAGE!!!

      I’m honestly surprised that show is still on TV.

      • Dwayne

        I was home sick for the week last month and saw so much of that show.

        • chicagodem79

          I used to watch it regularly because it was kind of entertaining. As much as I enjoy Steve slinging chairs across the stage, I got kind of tired of it lol.

  • Marv

    Steve dramatically walks off the set while people are wailing on the floor and the lie detector guy is yelling about how he’s a pro. Jesus this is the worst of us lol

    • chicagodem79

      This is why, even on days off, I rarely watch daytime TV, that shit depresses me.

      • Steve isn’t nearly as enjoyable as Maury.

        • chicagodem79

          Maury, you pretty much know what you’re getting, and he’s obviously in on the joke so he doesn’t care anymore lol. Steve I feel, still “tries” to do good, but ultimately, his show is pretty trashy too so it’s way more awkward. I respect the story though, this dude was just your run of the mill Chicago cop, who happened to run security for Jerry and that turned into a whole new career for him. Good for him.

    • chicagodem79

      His “fortune” LOL….Did he actually say that, or was it the writer of the article?

      • ProjectBlue

        Writer. Though this is nice: “He actually asked that I check with the folks in this room since you are very good at research and have been doing a lot of reporting into the groups and organizations that are best and most effective in helping and providing aid, and he’d like some suggestions from the folks here and I’d be happy to take those,” she said during the daily press briefing.

        • DAJackson7

          I mean…that’s the best way to put that no doubt

      • The Silver Fox

        There’s probably only a handful of us here (and at the BoD) who weren’t.

  • The Professor

    Hot Take: season 3 was the best season of a-team because no female sidekick

    • The Silver Fox

      I also liked that version of the opening credits where a Cylon walked past Dirk Benedict.

    • ProjectBlue

      Good read, one mistype. Need to get around to it now that Thrones is done:

      This is basically my exact thoughts too.

      • Shocking

      • So not a whole lot for us to discuss, huh?

        • Marv

          All that stuff that makes the shows suck is fairly obvious so I guess not. I’m really bored with the fight scenes these days though that may just be because there never felt like there were any stakes to the fight.

          That whole last episode felt like a Shumacher homage with the goofy villains all breaking off into pairs to fight and all the cuts and jokes and shit. Such a disappointment.

          • I honestly would have been happier with the four of them sitting at a table cracking wise with each other.

          • Marv

            Yeah that was easily the best part of the whole show. They should have played cribbage.

    • Matt_InGeeked

      That isn’t hot.

    YES! Keep those points off the board.

  • Marv

    Alright this whiskey is 90 proof and was made by the first Disabled Combat Veteran Owned distillery in the United States so that’s a thing

  • Matt_InGeeked

    I love how 80% of ESPN analysts picked this terrible team to win the whole thing. Lol

  • Matt_InGeeked

  • Slightly older broads next to me are crushing red wine. I mean wow.

  • RudoWakening

    That INT was huge

        Its always good. Kind of wish they could score some points. That would be cool.

    Indiana has a better Buckeye offense than the Buckeyes. Lol

  • Mikey

    I’m not watching the game but OSU should be destroying them.

  • Marv

    Sigourney did the same thing in Defenders that Redford did in Cap, basically make me embarrassed for thinking all the other actors were any good at acting.

    • Macklin JeriPratt

      I liked the Defenders a ton more than most people but I wasn’t impressed by that character at all.

      • Marv

        She shared too many scenes with Danny Rand I started liking her by default because Rand sucks so terribly.

        • Macklin JeriPratt

          There could be something to that theory.

  • For all my liiife I pray for someone like you..

    I remember this song from my youth but I can’t recall the singer

  • Marv

    This whiskey is very very good. A little spicy but still pretty good for a distillery that’s only been open for three years.

  • Matt_InGeeked

    Losing 14-6 to Indiana.

    Indiana. Lol

  • Ok. Time to head.

  • Macklin JeriPratt

    Dobbins has had a couple nice runs.

  • RudoWakening

    Okay, first-and-goal. How about a fucking touchdown, Buckeyes?

  • Matt_InGeeked

    Fucking finally

  • Macklin JeriPratt

    I liked what I saw from the offensive line on that drive. More that.

    • Matt_InGeeked

      Yes please

  • Matt_InGeeked

    I’m usually not this curmudgeon-y. But I usually drink during football games, and I’m straight sober.

    Also I’m pissed because my doctor told me I have high cholesterol…even though I don’t eat fucking anything. So fuck.

    • Marv

      Whiskey has like zero milligrams of cholesterol.

      • Matt_InGeeked

        I should get some

        • Marv

          I had a shot of this hotel tango stuff and it was good then I poured a glass neat and it’s not so good so I’m going back to shots

    *Looking to make sure there is no Game of Thrones talk.

  • Matt_InGeeked

    This secondary is not very good.

    • Matt_InGeeked

      And no pass rush.

    • Marv

      Yeah if he doesn’t watch out they’re going to make him the tertiary.

      • Matt_InGeeked

        Will you stop?!

  • And my wife is asleep on the couch. Awesome.

    • Matt_InGeeked

      Mine is a Tom Dawkings joke so I’m in the other room.

      • Sure.

      • How do you guys all fall onto these random dudes all at the same time?

        Where do you even hear about this guy?

        • I don’t really know what it’s all about

        • Marv

          Ok first you wait for them to be naked then you put something easy to trip over in front of the door…

        • Brian_Bayless

          He tells a lot of jokes on the BoD.

      • RudoWakening

        You’ve made the right choice in avoiding that

  • Doodoo doo doo
    Doodoo doo doo

  • Matt_InGeeked

    I could use a stiff drink but that would require me to drive and also leave the couch.

    • Marv

      I can’t believe you came home for a four day weekend with no alcohol in the house that’s a goddamn rookie move

      • Matt_InGeeked

        I’ll fix it tomorrow.

    • Let you go baby

  • Matt_InGeeked

    He is a terribly inaccurate passer.

  • Won’t you please help me..

    • Matt_InGeeked

      I’ve been wandering if I could for the longest time.

    • RudoWakening

      When I was younger, so much younger than today

      • When I was young it was more important

        Pain more painful and laughter much louder yeah.

        When I was young.

  • RudoWakening

    It’s only the first game but COME ON. Get your shit together, Buckeyes.

    • Matt_InGeeked

      This defense was supposed to be awesome, and they can’t stop Indiana.

      • Brian_Bayless

        They got hit with the Pence Shock

        • Matt_InGeeked

          That…is tremendous.

        • RudoWakening

          Dammit Bayless, you’ve won this round

  • Matt_InGeeked

    This season is gonna be a real struggle.

  • Marv

    You should have seen how passionate he got when I showed him the dick flyer.

    • Matt_InGeeked

      What

    • Brian_Bayless

      This sounds like something I don’t know a whole lot about

    • Macklin JeriPratt

      If it’s supposed to be a bicep you should have added more veins.

  • Matt_InGeeked

    Football shouldn’t take 7 hours to watch.

    • Brian_Bayless

      Its why we have ESPN

      • Matt_InGeeked

        Feels like Wrestlemania.

        • Brian_Bayless

          Are they going to have Kirk Herbstreit come in on a white horse for a 45 minute halftime show?

          • Matt_InGeeked

            God I hope. That would be amazing.

  • My room was so much colder then
    My father was a soldier then
    And times were very hard
    When I was young

  • Matt_InGeeked

    What a horrible half.

  • The Professor

    When you rent a car, do you go for a cheap car or nice car?

    • Marv

      Usually a nice car, when I’m going 7100 miles I get a piece of crap apparently.

      • The Professor

        But that was only to Montana that you drove that car

        • Marv

          I went to a Jiffy Lube today and gave the guy my name and number and he was like “This is the same car that we serviced 11 days ago…”

          I was like “Yep!”

  • Mikey

    It feels like Fall outside. I love when it feels like fall outside. No better weather for cigarettes.

    • Marv

      It’s definitely already fall weather here. It’s so nice.

      • The Professor

        It was 110 fucking degrees where I live

        • Marv

          Yeah fuck all that lol, a nice 72 today in Seattle it was lovely.

        • RudoWakening

          You in the Valley?

          • The Professor

            Yep

          • The Professor

            Like ohmygawd

      • Mikey

        This is the six weeks of the year in Cleveland where is isn’t miserably cold or humid like NYC. It’s lovely.

    • Macklin JeriPratt

      It’s heinous here. 90 degoddamngrees.

    • Brian_Bayless

      It was low 70’s today with no humidity.

    • RudoWakening

      It was about 73 here today. It’s supposed to be 85 Sunday but temps will fall into the mid-to-upper-60s next week. HOODIE WEATHER BECKONS

      • Mikey

        Hoodie weather is bliss lol

  • I smoked my first cigarette at ten
    And for girls I had a bad yen
    Yes I had quite a ball
    When I was young

  • I met my first love at thirteen
    She was brown, and I was pretty green
    Yes I learned quite a lot
    When I was young

  • RudoWakening

    I can’t lay under my blankie if the tag is near my head. It HAS to be at my feet

    • Stranger In the Alps

      This is Rule #74 from the Motherfucker Handbook.

      • RudoWakening

        Man, I could go for a couple of Motherfuckers for lunch this weekend. Gotta find a joint that serves ’em in La Crosse

        • Stranger In the Alps

          When you find one, throw on some Aladdin Sane or Sheer Heart Attack on the iPod.

          • RudoWakening

            Rule #113 of the Motherfucker Handbook right there

          • Stranger In the Alps

            Nothing says “I’m eating a couple of Motherfuckers for lunch so leave me alone” like some glam rock.

  • The Professor

    Here’s what I learned from the defenders (and avengers), New York is the worst place to live ever.

    You have all these super villains trying to take over ny.
    You rarely see villains trying to take over la. (Only iron man movies)
    Only once did they go after Cleveland.

    • Marv

      You’ll notice none of the characters in that show ever order pizza delivery.

      • The Professor

        Ninja turtles is the only one I can think of

    • Macklin JeriPratt

      I can’t talk, Magneto tore up the Golden Gate Bridge. Also, he totally did the Oakland Coliseum too that’s why it’s in such bad shape. Damn you magneto.

    • Hell’s Kitchen, also, is apparently still huge.

  • My faith was so much stronger then
    I believed in my fellow men
    And I was so much older then

    When I was young

  • RudoWakening

    Tag is at my feet. I’m off to be Mayor of Slumbertown.

  • Fall here today. Hot dog bastard that I bought a hot dog from was wearing a coat

    • Stranger In the Alps

      Hot Dog Bastard is a catchy name.

      • Gimme a hot dog you bastard
        A coat? It’s not THAT cold you bastard
        Three and a quarter? You bastard!

        Is how the exchange went

  • The Professor

    What makes NYC create all these supervillains? You never see super villains from San Diego or Hawaii or Jackson hole Wyoming.

    • Stranger In the Alps

      It’s all the toxic waste they dumped in the sewer system during the 80s.

      • The Professor

        The secret of the ooze?

        • Stranger In the Alps

          Or CHUDs.

          • Ginger Mahal

            Oh, those wacky cannibalistic humanoid underground dwellers!

          • Stranger In the Alps

            Whenever I need to go to Walmart, that’s CHUD central.

  • Matt_InGeeked

    We’re getting a huge ass thunderstorm right now. Think it’s the ass end of Harvey.

    • Matt_InGeeked

      Tons of lightning.

      • The Professor

        You’ve got thunder and lightning. You better knock on wood

    • Stranger In the Alps

      Hugh Jass.

  • Mikey

    Has anyone been a main credit character like the guy that played Doyle and then just fall off within ten episodes of the show.

    • The Professor

      Doyle?

    • The Professor

      Does The girl from family matters count?

      • Mikey

        She was on for like four seasons

    • Macklin JeriPratt

      Not as compressed as 10 episodes but Mark from Parks and Rec stands out.

      Somewhere in the middle of Season 2 he and Pratt switch places as far as importance to the show.

      Pratt would be a great answer for the opposite question of who started as a guest star and became a regular. He was originally just meant for a couple episodes. There is a giant hole in that show without him.

  • Matt_InGeeked

    It better not be this way through my 4 day weekend, or I’m gonna be mega pissed.

  • Matt_InGeeked

    Just lost power temporarily

  • Matt_InGeeked

    Power keeps cutting in and out. Well, I’m out for now.

  • Marv

    At least once a month I end up watching all the Always Sunny outtakes and laughing my face off

    • Ginger Mahal

      Wait, there are outtakes?

      I don’t know if I’m equipped to handle those.

      • Marv

        For everyone season up to at least eight or nine. Once they stopped doing DVDs I think they stopped releasing them.

    • Never seen the program.

  • Marv

    Poopface goes down so easy sometimes, it rules. Moooore whiskay

  • Once I’m done with The Jackson 5 it’s on to Warren Zevon .

  • Damn, I didn’t realize that I’ve outlived Princess Diana. And when I look at her I still see an adult.

    • Marv

      That’s really creepy and weird dude. I didn’t really think about it but you’re right I think of her as an adult too lol

      • Being old is weird.

        • Marv

          I always think about this picture I saw of Ron Paul at a meeting and he was leaning his chair back trying to balance it. Dude was like 70 years old or something and still acting like he was seven.

    • The Professor

      wow she was only 36

  • Another thing that I just noticed is that there is a poster on the BoD called Tom Dawkings.

  • Mikey

    This college football game has been going on for three hours and it’s not even the 4th quarter. I give college football fans credit. They go thru something as boring and terrible as Wrestlemania 32, only they do it 14 times a year.

    • Mikey

      Here’s a sport that’s bad like the NFL where you have to be really loud and dumb for five straight hours and can’t actually enjoy the game. Only the players are way less talented!

      • Marv

        I never quite got the idea of going somewhere to scream for so long. It’s fun to scream sometimes but that consistent yelling just doesn’t seem fun to me. And it’s so fucking cold all the time.

        • Mikey

          Yes! I have no desire to go to a sport where I have to drink just to feel less cold. The high five with the old man only happens when we score and it means more.

          • Marv

            Basketball and hockey are great, a nice temperature controlled environment lol

          • Mikey

            For sure.

    • Matt_InGeeked

      Somebody is bitter because the Buckeyes finally starting to take over the game.

      • Matt_InGeeked

        But yes, these games are way too fucking long.

  • Marv

    This whiskey is good with water lol

  • Facts

    This is why I watch Football at home. I cant stand most of the drunk rowdy fans.

    • Marv

      That’s why baseball is the best. It’s literally a day out at the park.

  • Macklin JeriPratt

    Buckeyes have speed out there if Barrett can get them the ball.

    • His receivers were not helping him a’tall in the first half.

  • Facts

    I love that fall is right around the corner

  • And so great is a man goin’ to be praised
    Selassie I every time
    I say Jah shall execute judgment and justice
    And none shall escape, what me say
    Selassie I leave em terrified, what me say
