  1. I've always believed that WWE should emulate the old Jim Crockett Promotions' gimmick of "all the babyfaces run out of the locker room and into the ring to celebrate when a babyface wins a title" ..... ...but it shows you how shallow the roster is right now when Dean Ambrose and The Usos are the ones celebrating, it's the equivalent of Reigns celebrating with Sam Houston, the Mulkeys, and Jimmy Garvin instead of Dusty, Nikita, and the Road Warriors.
  2. *emerges from lurking* Thanks, we'll keep that in mind if the word "ADMINISTRATOR" ever appears under your non-avatar. *returns to lurking*
  3. I'm going to be laughing hysterically seven days from now when Vince strips Reigns of the title for Superman Punching him and either gives the title back to Sheamus or (more likely) puts it up for grabs at the Rumble. And then I'm going to laugh even harder when Reigns wins the Rumble, but then Triple H's music hits and he declares that this year is a special 31-man Royal Rumble, and he's the 31st entrant, and then chucks the exhausted Reigns out of the ring to claim "World" title number 14 *goes back into lurking*
  4. Dude deserves his own thread: http://www.tennessean.com/story/news/politics/2015/11/01/former-us-sen-fred-thompson-dies-73/74752142/
  5. How many times last week did ESPN play that insanely stupid "Grantland Presents" ten-minute feature on that really old guy at Brooklyn Nets games who jumps and dances around in the lower bowl and is clearly pissing off the "corporate" season ticket holders who have to sit next to him? 30 times? 40? I mean, they played it twice per hour. And the last time Grantland did a "special look" at a Nets superfan (Justin Gamblero) the dude killed himself less than a year later due to mental illness and getting kicked out of a Knicks game. So yeah, Grantland deserves to die a horrible death and I hope to God this "getting out of the pop culture business" comment means no more Frank Caliendo and no more "guest appearances" by celebrities plugging their movies on SportsCenter. --------------- And to explain my hatred of Andy Greenwald, it's something that Patton Oswalt talked about at one of his book signings for "Silver Screen Fiend." This seeming need by white liberal hipsters to go on social media and defend minority groups who can defend themselves thank you very much. Ava DuVernay didn't need Andy banging the drum for why she didn't get nominated for an Academy Award, Ms. DuVernay could do that herself no problem. That and I really wish I could break into the recording studio during one of his podcasts, grab him by the hair, and start slamming him face first into the console table. WHAM! WHAM! WHAM! Me: NARCOOOOS! WHAM! WHAM! WHAM! Me: NARCOOOOOOS! WHAM! WHAM! WHAM! Me: NARCOOOOOOOOOOOS! SEE, THAT ISN'T IRRITATING AT ALL, IS IT ANDY? WHAM! WHAM! WHAM! Me: NOPE! NOT IRRITATING AT ALL! YOU CONSTANTLY SHOUTING "NARCOS" IS NOT IRRITATING AT ALL AND HASN'T BEEN RUN INTO THE GROUND SIX WEEKS AGO! ----- This is my next to last post here, excluding the Fred Thompson thread, thank you and goodbye.

  7. Sorry dude, wasn't aware I had pissed in your cereal prior to posting. Anyways, 2013-14 Insignias were re-badged Hisense models, 2010-12 were Vizios. You can always tell a Sharp LED TV b/c the contrast is always way off, with people looking like they have really bad tans/really red skin.
  8. Is it me or is Daniel Craig really starting to show his age in that Heineken "water skiing" commercial? Craig with a "Dan Rather" style haircut is not a good look for the guy.
  9. Also check out J. M. DeMatteis' brief run on Daredevil where he had the unenviable task of undoing all of D.G. Chichester's idiotic "Matt fakes his death, wears an ugly grey and red costume" story arc that was done to cash in on the Death of Superman hysteria, AND at the same time arc weld Miller's "Man Without Fear" mini-series into canon proper. This was probably JDM's last really good work before the Spider-Clone lunacy seemingly ruined him as a comics writer. Having Matt & Foggy become fashion designers was a really weird editorial decision.
  10. http://espn.go.com/college-football/story/_/id/13937182/pete-how-usc-hopes-recapturing-glory-failed-trojans Pretty good evisceration of the Kiffin-Sarkisian era at USC.
  11. Just as a warning, if any of you were thinking about getting a TV from Best Buy this year, both the Insignia and Toshiba brands, which are "Best Buy exclusives," are actually re-badged Sharp TVs. Really poor quality Sharp TVs with horrible contrast and poor black levels.
  12. Just realized that the actress who plays Lindsay on "You're The Worst" got her start in anime dub acting, most notably as Skuld from the 2005 TV version of "Ah! My Goddess."
  13. I used to feel the same way, but in a weird way I kind of love New England now. As an appreciator of the game, it's hard not to be a bit in awe of their consistent excellence. They're like the 90s Bulls, except they're going on 15 years of it. I'll never be a Patriots Fan but I do definitely appreciate them. Oh, I have nothing against the Patriots team themselves, except for Lagarrette Blount who I view as a moronic thug, but the city of Boston who I cannot stand on a level saved only for the people of Seattle and Seahawks fans. I remember right before the appeals court overturned the Brady suspension, Kirk Minihane (you know, THAT Kirk Minihane) did a bunch of radio interviews with other stations in the "Entercomm family" and came off as such a colossal Masshole in his blind defense of Brady that I long for the day that the Patriots dynasty collapses and the Pats join the Celtics and Red Sox in their current loserdom ineptness and all these "Baahstun" jackasses have nothing to root for again. Tom Brady could come out as a Holocause Denier and these idiots would start arguing about how the "liberal, Zionist media" was secretly controlling ESPN and painting Tom in a negative light.
  14. Call me somewhat prudish, but the "fade to black" implied sex between two 13/14-year olds in "Over The Edge" REALLY creeped me out the first time I saw the movie on HBO in the late 1980s. I mean, I'm not stupid enough to think that real life kids aren't banging each other at that age, but that scene still got a "Wow, we're really going there" reaction from me.
  15. With [mul] doomstone was I supposed to pronounce it "Mul Doom Stone" or was the [mul] supposed to be silent?
  16. I like how the people who got "Fallen Empire" on early release smashed through the game and had all 10 "chapters" up on Youtube within 12 hours of downloading the game.
  17. That montage of "New England school children" gushing about how much they love the Patriots makes me cannot wait until Brady retires/suffers a career ending injury and the Patriots go back to the pre-Parcells horribleness. Kevin Harlan: The Patriots give up 56 points today and fall to 0-7, and this half-empty stadium tells you that the good times are definitely over for the Kraft family.
  18. Will the producers of The View PLEASE fire Raven Symone and her stupid hair already? Twice when interviewing Bernie Sanders, she referred to herself as a "spokesman for her generation" If the brainless Raven Symone really is the spokesperson for Millennials, than our country is truly fucked come 20 years from now when Millennials come to control the House and Senate.
  19. Going through "You're The Worst" based upon recommendations here (thanks guys), and what the hell is the costume designer's obsession with having Gretchen and the other girls wear multiple slutty necklaces like white trash trailer park women?
  20. http://deadline.com/2015/10/jon-chu-jem-and-the-holograms-film-independent-1201593006/ So not only did Jem and the Holograms die a horrible death, grossing only $1.32 million on a $5 million budget, but the very same weekend director Jon Chu was the keynote speaker at a indie film forum. Producer Steve Blum also had to give a speech.
  21. Kind of sad to see Hallie Foote show up as the gradnmother in the latest Paranormal Activity. She's the daughter of Horton Foote and has spent most of her career appearing in his plays, but she was excellent playing her own grandmother in the PBS adaptations of Horton Foote's 1918 and On Valentine's Day
  22. And the hits keep coming. George O'Leary "retires" effective immediately after UCF gets their brains kicked in my Houston yesterday. http://espn.go.com/college-football/story/_/id/13969897/george-oleary-ucf-knights-head-coach UCF also agrees to pay first year OC Brent Key $700,000 to not become the next coach. Both UCF and O'Leary had denied repeated rumors that Key's contract named him "coach in waiting."
  23. Another problem with Lethal is the fact that they saddled fucking Truth Martini as his manager. Martini is a guy who should probably be a bottom of the card "jobber manager" ala Damian Kane in ECW circa 1996. Him managing the "World" champion/company ace is the equivalent of if Donnie B. had scored a WWE contract and become the manager of Brock Lesnar, rather than Heyman.
  24. Contentious Statement: I can't take Jay Lethal seriously at all, given his history as "Black Machismo." To me it would be like if WCW had made Terry Taylor World Champion in 1991 after the Red Rooster gimmick.
  25. Huh? Just open the film up with a shot of Renner drunk in a bar, while a "voice over montage" of his wife leaving him and a judge awarding sole custody of his kids to her plays, and then have him move into a cool loft apartment and then run into Kate Bishop at the archery range, and there you go.
