  1. Pistons have been without Blake and Reggie all year, and were without Rose as well tonight, so I'm pretty happy they've been middle of the road. More importantly though, Drummond has had three straight 20-20 games.
  2. So the possibly completely baseless speculation has moved to the fact that Vince and most of the other top executives all sold off a lot of stock in August and September, rather than waiting until just before the Fox deal actually kicked in. At the time, it was seen as odd, now, well, if they were getting ahead of the Saudi deal ending way prematurely... That's potentially criminal.
  3. So, 3/5 of Children of Bodom announced they are leaving the band after December 15's concert.
  4. https://www.latimes.com/entertainment-arts/business/story/2019-11-01/deadspin-stick-to-sports-bad-math in case you thought G/O Media wasn't full of shot when they argued the "stick to sports" edict was purely business related.
  5. It's pretty well known around here that I can't stand Rollins, but there's no denying he was the most over face on the roster for a good chunk of 2018. But he started cooling off in the latter part of that summer. He was still over, but by the time his Rumble win rolled around, he was just one of the handful of guys getting roughly the same pop. And it's just been slowly withering away all year. It's classic WWE though; don't strike when the iron is hot, wait six or eight months. Then strike regardless of whether or not it's still hot. (Except with Rusev. With Rusev it's just refuse to strike no matter what.)
  6. It's live and I get paid tomorrow. Godzilla here I come.
  7. Deadpool 2 is a better movie than Deadpool in every single way except freshness.
  8. No, the best part is that the "Layering Season" is the weekly NFL preview column written by Drew, their most popular talent (at least, he was until resigning.) Is that all 10 staff writers now?
  9. They do. Which could be interesting: come back next year with Steph, Draymond, a healthy Klay, and some combination of Russell, a potential lottery pick, or whatever more immediate help they can flip either or both of those into.
  10. Deadspin has been basically my favorite website for several years. This just fucking sucks.
  11. https://letterboxd.com/farwell3d/tag/31for31/films/by/release-earliest/ And so I've finished this marathon. Woo boy, that 89-95 stretch was ROUGH, New Nightmare aside.
  12. Michael Myers is literally what I think of when people say "Boogeyman"
  13. Now, if they will extend that to people subscribed to HBO on TV/HBO Go, I'll be very happy.
  14. At least in the U.S. I'm pretty sure that they legally aren't supposed to be doing so. I mean, it certainly wouldn't be the only incident of a media company violating laws on consumer privacy, so it certainly doesn't mean they aren't, but...
  15. Diana Moskovitz also gave her two week notice.
  16. I can't explain why, but every time I revisit the director's cut of the 2009 Halloween II, I fall a little more in love with it. It's crazy, wildly ambitious, falls flat on its face in places, examines PTSD in a bold manner, never tries to make the violence cool, and has at least three legit gut punch level emotional moments. The white horse/shared delusion stuff still doesn't make any sense, but I guess I just don't care anymore. I love this movie.
  17. Well, the last time we had a real rivalry between companies, Twitter and Facebook didn't exist. I bet 1997 wrestling Twitter would've been every bit as bad or worse. Hell, when TNA tried going head to head, even that got absurd.
  18. Be fun to eventually run back Cody/Omega with Kenny challenging. Run with Cody as top face til it cools, then turn him again and run with that.
  19. Deadspin also posted an article today apologizing for the incredibly obnoxious autoplay video ads. It vanished within hours.
  20. They tend to recoup some off selling streaming rights, but, yeah, the twin massive revenue streams of rental stores and DVD sales have dried up considerably.
  21. That reminds me that I really need to listen to the new The Avett Brothers album that came out a few weeks ago before I commit to anything.
  22. About Bret: I'm embarrassed to admit how old I was before I realized that Excellence of Execution was a Hitman pun, and not just a comment on how fucking perfectly he did everything.
