  • Andrew Lincoln (Rick Grimes) Appears to be Leaving TWD. Will only be in six episodes in season 9.

    Andy Lincoln was only sticking around for the Bald Move coverage. Now there is no point.

  • I'm mad about Roseanne

    Roseanne was not solely fired for this tweet, she had been making ABC quite uncomfortable for some time and this is what pushed them over the edge. She can’t successfully claim that it was a joke, or the Ambien talking, or whatever the next excuse is because of the context of who she is publically aside from this tweet. ABC probably should not have risked this project in the first place.

    Our Cartoon President is satire, and it’s on Showtime.
    Colbert’s late night show is satire. The man made his name with a nonstop satire of Bill O’Reilly
    Southpark is satire with heart, all of the racism and xenophobia on that show demonstrates how ridiculous it is rather than glorifying it, and it’s on Comedy Central
    Bill Maher is a bit nuts on some issues, but you know what you’re getting with him, and he’s on HBO, and he was fired by ABC
    I don’t watch the View, but I presume they don’t put up with racist declarations on a regular basis
    Michael Richards career was pretty much killed for stepping over the line on race
    Kathy Griffin’s career went through a near-death experience for stepping over the line on Trump

    To be clear: indulging in public racism is an entirely different thing that being insulting to DJT. It is not equivalent. Period. If the right chooses to take an attack on racism as an attack on the right, then they are just confirming many folks worst fears about what the right is becoming in this country.

    If you’re not a racist, but many of the people you affiliate yourself with are racists and you find yourself defending racism because attacks on it are hurting your “side,” then you have some introspective thinking to do.

    The dog whistles of Birtherism, attacks on Anthem Protests, All Lives Matter, etc. have been successful for the right, but if you go from dog whistle to bullhorn folks still draw a line.

  • A Teachable Moment: Pride Month

    The selective use of the jealous vengeful God of the Old Testament when convenient over the God of peace and forgiveness in the New Testament by some Christians is galling to me.

    Some folks go all Leviticus over homosexuality, but they don’t want to discuss most of the other stuff in that particular book.
  • U.S. Politics Vol. 7: A Dream of 2020

    The White House emailed their damage-control talking points to House Democrats and then tried to recall the message. Spoiler alert: the recall was unsuccessful.
  • OK, where the hell do people actually have bagged milk in this country?

    Plus, it’s an effective source of calcium, probably better than taking supplements.
    There’s some evidence that calcium supplements can increase risk of heart attacks as it can build up in arteries, so always better to get it from food sources (as a middle aged woman terrified of osteoporosis, I am big on this topic). 

    And you can prise my cheese out of my cold, dead hands. 
    I’m with you. I’m not a big fan of drinking milk, but the folks who go on about the human race never having been weened or whatever can come and try to take my:
    - Cheese including Cream Cheese and Cottage Cheese
    - Sour Cream
    - Butter
    - Yogurt
    - Cheese Cake
    - Cookies And other baked goods
    - Buttermilk Fried Chicken
    - Whipped Cream
    - Creamy Sauces
    - Creamy Soups
    - Milk Chocolate
  • Just listened to Empire Business - Quite a Pickle

    Just for perspective despite all the gut punches like GoT and the learning experiences like Starburns we did have a good stuff in 2019 like True Detective, Deuce, Legion, Stranger Things, Mr. Robot, Chernobyl, Groundhog’s Day Marathon, etc.

    BM TV has been more consistent and has been great. Same with Bald Movies: sure you have Star Wars, but you also have Captain Marvel, End Game, Joker, etc.

    How about that Cecily and Alexis His Dark Materials cast? That was awesome.

    I’m not trying to engage in gratuitous dick-sucking, but there was a lot of good stuff to go along with the stuff that didn’t go right. I’m sure some of the great shows weren’t as rewarding as far as audience and membership gains as a fantastic GoT finish could have been, but the club abides so you have runway to take some risks and endure some setbacks.

    How many hours of material did BM produce in 2019? 200? 250? It can’t all be Breaking Bad or GoT season 3.
  • Star Wars Episode IX The Rise of Skywalker *SPOILER DISCUSSION*

    I don’t think the Jedi being rare would result in them being unknown. They’d be like Superman. Everyone would know about them, but their deeds and abilities would be twisted in gossip, myth, and legend because so few would witness them firsthand.
  • Looks Like There Is Likely No More Watchmen

    Disappointed, but I’d rather have them not do a follow up than force one without strong ideas. Maybe he’ll come back to it in a few years if something strikes him.
  • 806 - The Iron Throne

    Wow, well played.
