  1. $45 in Uber fees to get home tonight because all the buses were rerouted due to riots. Hey rioters, which one of you ass clowns wants to reimburse me all the money I lost today that I couldn't afford to?
  2. Seriously dude, what the fuck is wrong with you? I really needed those three hours of work.
  3. I was three hours late to work today because George Floyd protesters were blocking all traffic and making the buses super late.
  4. Depends on how big a fan of 80's schlock you are. Chopping Mall features some nice nude scenes from Suzee Slater and the chick from Re-Animator, a fun cameo from Dick Miller, and, bizarrely, the leads from Eating Raoul. EDIT: For some reason, I always confuse Barbara Crampton with the girl from Basket Case.
  5. Yeah, but that name: "The Widowmaker." That was the first time I was like "why the fuck can't he just be 'Barry Windham?'" And, of course, within a month of his debut he was simply "The Widowmaker" and no mention was made of Barry Windham.
  6. Anyone know the date of the match where Hawk throws Duane Gill to the arena floor:
  7. One of my best friends from college, whose wedding I attended 18 years ago, recently dumped her husband and has fully embraced the cougar lifestyle. Ironically, I found this out when I emailed her over my own angst at briefly dating a much younger woman. I expected/hoped she would talk me out of it, but instead she told me how "fun" a mid-life crisis can be. Needless to say, I was upset at the marriage failing, and this was not the advice I had been hoping for.
  8. Oh, there'll be fans, maybe 15,000-20,000 instead of 65,000, but I'm fairly confident we'll have fans in the stands. The 49ers, Rams, and Raiders will all probably have to play their home games at neutral sites unless the lawsuits against Gavin Newsom's lockdown orders succeed I think the November/December games, after the "second peak" will have the most demand on the secondary market, as people will be REALLY eager for things to return to normal by that point, lack of vaccine be damned.
  9. Would house show business have improved in 1993 if Lex had won the WWF Title as SummerSlam instead of beating Yokozuna by countout? The two WWF house shows I saw in late 1993 had the smallest crowds ever with Yokozuna on top against Undertaker (first match Yoko pinned Taker after hitting him with a salt bucket, second show was a non-title casket match that Taker won.) WWF fans were always conditioned to long WWF Championship reigns by the superhero babyface, with short reigns by the heels. Yoko held the title for NINE FUCKING MONTHS and shitted the bed every night with his slow, lethargic matches. (Honestly, I think that title reign scarred me, emotionally.) If Lex lad been out there cleanly pinning the heel every night and hoisting the WWF belt, would business have improved at all, even if just by 2-3000 fans?
  10. On today's WOR, when Dave was talking about The Revival's debut, he said "they were booking to the BTE audience" in reference to Being The Elite, but I misheard it as "booking to the BET audience" and thought that the Bucks/Omega/Cody were booking to the viewers of Tyler Perry's The Oval and Being Mary Jane.
  11. Even the referees are biased towards Dusty, that should have been a DQ.
  12. Is there a reason the original Bonk the Caveman isn't in the Turbografx 16 mini? Also, thumbs down for not getting the rights to the PC Engine versions of Afterburner and Chase H.Q. Edit: Bonk is on there as P.C. Genjin.
  13. I wonder which of the super debt heavy teams will be the first to file for bankruptcy. The Dodgers? I could see Rob Manfred letting one team file for Chapter 11 to serve as a warning to the players and force them to cave in and make major concessions.
  14. Something like that: https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-news/lauryn-hill-settles-lawsuit-251366/
  15. Adam Kubert at his best. From Ghost Rider/Blaze: Spirits of Vengeance #6
  16. The High Note would have been a much, much, much more interesting film if, instead of a Diana Ross/Whitney Houston aging diva, the main character had been a thinly veiled Lauryn Hill expy: Constant mood swings, always 2 hours late for concerts, treats her fans with contempt, only puts out new material because she owes millions in back taxes, which also ends with her going to federal prison. Dakota Johnson is her long suffering personal assistant who is so blindly devoted to her boss's "artistic genius" that she can't see how awful she is treated and is basically in an emotionally abusive co-dependant relationship with the boss, to the point she has no self-esteem or self-identity outside of her job.
  17. Even that's gone out the window. Marvel 2-in-1 #2 (2018) retconned the Fantastic Four getting their powers seventeen years ago, while Dan Slott at the same time made repeated references to Peter & MJ being "almost 30," (a minor subplot during Slott's run, as MJ was worried about modeling oppurtunities drying up) and there were vague references to 616 Felicia Hardy being several years older than Peter dating back to the McFarlane era. Nick Spencer has had characters refer to Peter & MJ being in their "mid-twenties," and Felicia's solo book has de-aged her to also being "mid-twenties." Then there's Jubilee who went from being 15-16 when she debuted to de-aged to 13 when Generation X debuted, to her current age being anywhere from 15-19, depending on the writer and how long she was a vampire. In the end, it doesn't really matter, as this is all a fictional, constantly changing world. I'm sure we'll eventually get a writer who de-ages Sue Storm to being 16 when she got her powers and is now a 28-year old MILF who can't identify with the much older Reed anymore and leaves him to shack up with Namor.
  18. None? Because none of them are middle aged. Didn't they even mention that Jean is now physically younger than she had been prior to her death in Morrison's run thanks to the Phoenix Force rebuilding her body? And going by the sliding "10 years since the Fantastic Four debuted" timescale, Kitty is barely 18-19 and Emma is maybe late 20's.
  19. One of the real negatives of working retail is that you have to listen to the SAME GODDAMNED FUCKING SONGS EVERY FOUR HOURS thanks to the in-store radio network. I've developed an almost pathological hatred for The Pretenders' "Back on the Chain Gang," and if I ever meet Chrissie Hynde, I'm going to ask her why she was too fucking lazy to put some more lyrics into the song instead of just putting more and more "oh oh ohs" into it.
  20. I've been watching a lot of The First 48 since the lockdown began, and it seems that every murder victim was a "good dude" who "the local children looked up to," even if the photos they show make the murder victim look like a strung out meth addict with no teeth. Aside from filming in New York and L.A. instead of Tulsa, Cleveland, and New Orleans, I wish just once, an episode would feature narrator Dion Graham saying the following: Dion Graham: "...neighbors say that the murder victim was a total sleazebag, who hung around elementary school playgrounds and liked to get 16-year old girls hooked on heroin as part of a complex scam to lure them into prostitution." Victim's Widow: "He was a bad dude, thank God he's dead."
  21. Yet both were/are giant egomaniacs, so they have that in common.
  22. From Mad Magazine #271. I remembered this after seeing that "2020 Presidential Election" Chess Set commercial this morning. If this had been a real thing in the 80's, I would have thrown a massive temper tantrum until my parents bought it: (You probably couldn't get away with the Adrian Adonis joke today. Ugh.)
  23. I really wish we had an "eye roll" reaction emoji to click on.
