  1. A dude who has been my friend for about 20 years made it through all the surgery and chemo and is now officially CANCER FREE!

  2. Everyone needs to shut the fuck up about Bryangate for a few pages, go watch that Orton v. Rhodes match again, and tell me it wasn't great.

  3. Well, there are a few ways to look at that. One is that he learned some type of important lesson from that feud/match and then went on to lose 4 consecutive times to the gentleman I referenced in an attempt to "do what is best for business" The other is that HHH is a racist that banged your mom.

  5. If their new thing is that everything is real, and there is no where else to work but WWE, then they should start attaching $ values to victories. It would make losing streaks mean something (poor Zach Ryder can't even afford a six-pack of Pabst Blue these days). It would explain how Big Show went broke, as he was 2-8 on PPV's last year. I'd give such an idea four Post-Modern Douchebags, out of five

  7. Fellas, I think I can tie this all together. Werner Herzog's first name can be Anglicanized as Vernon. John Vernon played Vernon Wormer in ANIMAL HOUSE, which accounts for the missing "W'. Vernon Wormer was the Dean of a college. Dean Ambrose's first name is Dean. Now. Focus on the brows. Just the brows... THIS IS A THING THAT IS HAPPENING TO US AND WE NEED TO UNDERSTAND IT!!!!!

  8. Oh, did I forget to add that in my concussed state on Saturday, my GF convinced me to leave the ER before I got checked (because she was tired of staying there), then after promising to stay with me all night to keep an eye on me...promptly bailed on me because "I was acting weird." Hmmm, might have to do with saving a girl (my GF's sister, BTW) from getting KO'd. With my face. I ended up texting my ex-wife at 4am, leaving her a message telling her to tell my daughters they were the two greatest things that ever happened in my life...just in case I didn't wake up in the morning. I then followed up by dumping my GF on Sunday...which also happened to be her 30th Birthday. BEST! WEEKEND! EVA!!!!!

  9. I would like to give a special shout-out to the people complaining about HHH and calling Randy Orton boring because you are being worked and it is really interesting to read these threads with that in mind. I honestly thought this place was above that. I can not for the life of me figure out why internet fans can't realize that the reason HHH and Orton are heels right now are exactly the reasons they've been complaining about those two for years. It was the same thing with Cena and folks not realizing that his super hero status is a vital aspect of his character designed to keep him dynamic, controversial, and versatile booking-wise. You are SUPPOSED to think HHH wants to be the focus of the show and is burying Daniel Bryan. You are SUPPOSED to think that Randy Orton doesn't deserve to be the champion or face of the company. It is baffling to me that people can dislike the heels for exactly the right reasons, support the faces for exactly the right reason, and still think the show was terrible and threaten to stop watching WWE altogether. You're adorable. You're terrible.

  11. Actually the biggest complaint anyone should have is that they just did an angle two years ago where the roster walked out en masse on HHH as COO when he wasn't being nearly the dick he is now.

  14. So I played Batman: Arkham City for the first time since the 8th of August yesterday (didn’t want to play it while my Mum was in hospital). I had a big session in the main story: going back into the Steel Mill, fighting The Joker with thugs, Mr. Hammer and a Titan jumping in as ghost trains are running, playing the Catwoman section when you break into the TYGER vault, as Batman climbing helicopters in search for TYGER Master Control Program codes, climbing Wonder Tower, going up against Hugo Strange, finishing the main story as Batman and the final Catwoman section as she faces Two-Face. If you remember, I said I forgot to destroy the one remaining Titan container when you visit Wonder City for the first time. I wasn’t looking forward to going through the Subway to get it as I found it the easiest place to get lost, then Wonder City but you return to Wonder City as you head for Hugo Strange. I liked that as I was able to destroy that Titan container and end the Fragile Alliance side mission. I also unlocked a couple more challenge maps. Before I stopped, I found the third remaining Deadshot victim and narrowed the three possible locations where he’s at and completed enough riddles to rescue the fourth Riddler hostage. Remaining now from main story mode are a few side missions, Riddler Trophies, Riddles, Riddler hostages and the breakable objects. I have Harley Quinn’s Revenge as I own Batman: Arkham City, Game of the Year edition. I’m guessing as that was DLC, it doesn’t reflect the upgrades/skills made in main story mode? Don’t like that. I also have the medals from challenge mode/challenge maps which I think most people know it as, not Riddler’s Revenge. This post is getting big so I’ll spoiler tag my favourite and least favourite things from Batman: Arkham City for size.

  21. Yes. That was so much better than a cut scene or a jump right into the action. Very interactive and fun. The one thing Arkham Asylum had that I missed a lot in City was the Scarecrow stuff. I lost it during the Crime Alley sequence. that was so fucking awesome.

  22. The important thing is to complain about how badly an angle has paid off before it has paid off. That way you can boost your internet credibility by saying I TOLD YOU SO and it doesn't at all reflect how shitty your life must be.

  23. This is pretty spot on. There are actually two characters here who are behaving differently than everyone in the history of WWE. Bryan, by acknowledging that he can easily survive in a world that apparently (who knew!) exists outside of "The WWE UNIVERSE!!!" and HHH who is making it clear that the Austin thing won't work with him. It always used to be that if the boss told you not to do something or you'd get fired...you just stunnered/rock bottomed/whtavered the boss...and he would be so mad that he would keep you around to try and destroy you...and end up losing his company to you or something. HHH is short-circuiting that, which makes sense considering that's exactly what he used to do to Vince and he understands the ploy It is clear that if you attack him...he'll just fire you. That's new too. (except that he's conspicuously not doing that with Bryan himself..apparently just not being afraid of him or because as you said he knows firing him won't hurt him since he can actually survive in the world. This one mistake should be his downfall). So both sides in this story are off the normal script. the Bryan thing is, as you put it, more subversive and makes him seem like the only real person in the company.

  24. I really don't understand what everyone is complaining about. This angle, for the most part,is brilliant. And remarkably subversive. The reason why none of the other faces are standing up for DB is because they are essentially brainwashed by the WWE.They believe, like Cena, there is no other place to wrestle other than the WWE. Only DB sees the world differently. He's already stated that if he was fired tomorrow, he'd just go back wrestling in high school gymnasiums. But they won't fire him,because he's too popular and makes them money.I just think it's a really well thought storyline,one of the best they've had in a while.

  25. Jesus Christ people they just FIRED Cody Rhodes so that he can come back and HELP Bryan... and before his exit he cut a money promo. Yes, they are in a situation where they produce way too much television and that's an issue but the reaction here is way overboard. Buried Bryan? Seriously? He's been fighting 4 on 1.

  26. The thing that always confused me with the Boss Man/Mountie feud is that neither of them had any authority to arrest the other leading to the Hard Times match. The Mountie was way out of his jurisdiction, heck not even in the right country, whilst Boss Man wasn't even a policeman.

  27. Didn't see one, so I'll start. Really young Randy Savage "Maniac" Mark Lewin, Gary Hart, and Kevin Sullivan looking way too normal. It's actually kind of disconcerting to see these three out of character. Hopefully, they're still planning something evil. Road Warrior Animal. I have a sudden urge to sing the lyrics to "YMCA", but I'm not going to be the one to tell him he looks silly, Young Gordon Solie. Whoever told him he could pull off that color lied. Ric Flair "Mr. Perfect" looking way too happy. Never quite understood the "wear same colored trunks over your singlet" deal until I saw this pic.

  29. Paul Verhoeven and topless Jesse Spano are a winning combination. That movie is just camp genius. You've got Berkeley "dancing" like a spazz who's trying to injure people the entire time - and then using those exact same moves in the pool with McLachlan. There's the awful acting, the wretched dialogue, and the general sleaziness of the whole thing. It's awesome!

  30. Why are people deliberately ignoring the fact that repetitive storytelling and long-term storytelling aren't the same thing? One is good, the other, not so much.

  31. I remember very little about the movie now but I went with a group to see it and we ALL thought it was atrocious. As in one of the worst movies we'd ever seen. Maybe I need to give it another shot since I've heard from so many people that it's good.

  37. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rhabdomyolysis It's the perfect storm of exercise-induced medical conditions. A lot of contributing factors combined with doing way too much physical exertion, and ignoring every single warning sign your body throws at you. And if you're going to be a mark and work out, then you've got to do it right like this: http://instagram.com/p/deie9moh6f/

  40. So that ending was just mental, right? Like if anyone who wasn't following closely tuned into the last 15 minutes, that must have seemed like the most bizarre sequence of events and character reactions. This angle is being booked according to the Werner Herzog school of philosophical ecstasy (yes, I watched the TCM show about FRITZCARRALDO tonight)...Like, I could hear his voice: "The giant has made the mistake of claiming humanity in the natural world, a world made up of only fornication and asphyxiation. His folly is to believe in the fairy tale of morality that we learn as children so that our parents might sleep at night without fear that we will kill them. The small bearded man has embraced the pain and the chaos that is the order of the world. He will thrive and breathe deeply until his slaughter which will happen soon. Which will suffer more? Undoubtedly the giant."

  42. Seriously some of you are the biggest pussies ever. OH NOES I COULD DIE IN SPACE like you're all living wondeful fulfilling lives now. Fuck I decided years ago I want to end it all in one of those pods from 2001: A Space Odyssey listening to Miles Davis Bitches Brew and when the song ends the pod explodes. I can live with that when the time comes.
