  • Thanks @Michelle and @awookiee. I appreciate it. I know what you mean about unexpected people at work. I think the way people are with people when they are working is very instructive to who they are. Kind of how when you're dealing with people in t…
  • I'm bummed. I just found out that one of, or perhaps my favorite client passed away today. He was 95 and fighting multiple cancers and it was expected, probably a mercy to an extent, but dammit it sucks. Dr. William Trumbull, RIP.  He was a crack u…
  • Glad the Angels kept it classy. (face palm) Looks like there will be suspensions though. Looks like 3 games for Ramirez and a game and a fine for Ausmus. I support it. Throwing at him for a little payback is one thing, a thing that I don't necessar…

  • Dee said: So how much is Turbotax?  And @Travis, you mentioned retirement contributions. Is that something you have to work out and pay yourself? Or does the employer deduct it? We have compulsory superannuation here - it’s deducted from you…
  • rhcoop said: The federal code only gets super exotic when you start talking about taxing on companies/businesses. That doesn't even begin to count all the shenanigans (wayfair ruling) that some states using now to try to leach money from com…
  • I'm so crazy jealous. My wife and I were just talking about how we wish we could watch it from the beginning for the first time again. It's just such a unique, amazing show. I hope you dig it as much as I do. Enjoy!
  • rkcrawf said: I have a feeling it's the wealthy people, financial firms, and corporations that lobby to keep the tax code complicated. The software companies and small time accountants just subsist as a by-product. I get why we historically h…
  • @MrX certainly no argument there. You should see our office's annual bill from Intuit. I think we're paying around $17k/year for Lacerte, and we're a small office so it's not like we're even in double digits on users or anything like that. Totally d…
  • MrX said: We have to calculate and file taxes ourselves, even though the government has all the information needed. Estimated tax withholdings are taken out from each paycheck so the goal is theoretically to owe close to zero at filing time. …
  • All the Chickens said: I just cannot take the premise of this whole thing with Perry's death that seriously. Why would they have to hide it? He was beating and kicking the shit out of his wife laying on the ground which has been proven can be…
  • It is funny how the performances really effectively distract from how ridiculous the plot has become. I find myself gripped throughout the episodes (though I felt a couple of cracks forming rapidly under my feet in the most recent one), but then I h…

  • TORTOISE!!!!
  • If you haven't tried Legion out yet it's my favorite thing going at the moment. Gripping. Brilliantly crafted. A cool world to spend time in. Great performances. Incredibly compelling storytelling. Amazing show. If you're not in Big Little Lies tha…
  • Hot take of the day (hearing Curve for the first time edition): Curve is way, WAY better at being Garbage than Garbage is.
  • I still ride with the first. I just think that first season really captured everything so perfectly. I think I also give it a bit of credit for laying the ground work for the characters that would keep paying dividends as the show continued. We real…
  • kingbee67 said: I hate when I find a band I missed out on. When I was 16 I liked Dead Kennedys, Black Flag and Crass. The band I missed out on was Sub-Humans. I had heard of them but in the New Wave world I lived in 1984 the Record stores car…
  • cdrive said: 2 game suspension.  I don't believe there was any intent.  If there was any intent at all it was the intent to get out of the way.  He got juked by Lucroy's leg and he chose inside a millisecond before Lucroy also chose inside.  …

  • InvertedEarthTheory said: You have to realize Netflix only gave them eight episodes. And, on top of all that, the Duffer Brothers had A LOT of pressure on them, because of the success of the show. Every little mistake is pointed out, and that…
  • My biggest thing with this season, and J&A touched on it in the coverage, but it's the kind of reverse Netflix/Marvel problem where they would stretch 6 episodes of content into 13. This season of Stranger Things was 13 episodes condensed into 8…
  • I was into the a la carte/multi-subscription idea until it became clear that there would be roughly 10-20 relevant services each option intends to charge $8-$15/month. The landscape is getting really frustrating.
  • Today my day is being made by the memory that Vanilla Ice once said "shling-a-shlong" in a manner that would indicate that he was trying to make it a "thing people say." #CoolAsIce
  • Go A's... straight to hell. (fixed it for you). :-) Angels rule!* To your question, I'm not so familiar with the rules and where the lines are drawn but it definitely looked like he went out of his way to tackle him with the ball incoming. Pretty …

  • Black? White? Whatevs, man. All I care about is whether new Ariel can carry the weight of the character's immense hipster cred.
  • INT MIKE's BASEMENT 5 YEARS AFTER THE EVENTS OF STRANGER THINGS Will opens a backpack, filled with ALL the drugs. The kids do all the drugs in a mindset "spinning wheel" that rotates between manic laughing, visceral sobbing and general fetaling up i…
