  • Immediately coming to mind: Pump up the Volume. Totally loved it at 16, insufferable in a post 30 world (roughly the last time I watched it around 10 years ago).
  • Thanks @Michelle. I appreciate it.
  • This can't be my true favorite, but it was the first that came to mind. Paul Rudd will never be better than he was in this scene, and I love how absurdly long it feels. Cracks me up every time. EDIT: Bummer. the youtube window isn't popping up. Any…
  • You know Bran is this asshole, commonly run into at any record store.
  • Yeah, I'd watch 'em. Definitely. I don't like the "it was all in Bran's visions" angle though (sincerely, no offense meant). More so, I would 100% be in for a Continuing Adventures of Arya movie. Perhaps some smaller story within the world like a Br…

  • I like Pattinson, but I don't think he's too good to play Batman. Batman can still be a really good character. I don't see why everyone is so upset.
  • That 1998 tournament has me checking out an album by the Delgados today (Peloton). I'm only about half way through track 3, but this is fantastic! I'd heard of them, but never tried them out. I can't believe it's taken me this long. This is so good!

  • cdrive said: Sissy Nobby - Runnin Booty https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YpwzmKYAyvw That's pretty fun, man. I dig the little Shirley Ellis "The Clapping Song" nod.

  • I get a little hit and miss with The National. I like the bulk of High Violet (a couple of skip-able tracks, but really good on the whole), and Boxer has some great stuff, and I like some other scattered tracks, but hit and miss. They were really go…
  • @Murderbear for what it's worth, I took it as a combination of both but more heavily weighted to what you're saying. That he was turning his back on who he was becoming/had become and throw it all and ultimately his life away. I do believe that he c…
  • LordBy said: Huh...It never occurred to me that it wasn't a one-night stand, but yeah there could have been days or even weeks in there I guess?I don't know if that would make his leaving her crying without a real explanation better or worse?…
  • Aren't we meant to think (and this speaks again to the problematic ambiguity) that it wasn't a one night stand, but that they were together for at least a period of time? Didn't some measure of time elapse? Doesn't change things all that significan…

  • @letrbuck2006 I will grant you that, totally. I honestly don't know how they do it either. That said, and like you said, regardless of the challenge the result was the result. The problem was much more easily solved in the other 3 situations that I …
  • This isn't an original thought, but I'm listening to Binge Mode and they have been talking about the issue of "what story are you trying to tell?" This may not be important to many viewers. I'm honestly not sure if it's all that important to me, but…
  • I have a couple of problems with it, and it really is indicative of the big underlying problem of the show. Too much is left for assumption. You can tell the story that they told, but the stakes are so high in how she has manipulated and emotionally…

  • We watched the first 4 What We Do in the Shadows episodes last night and it is really great! Super fun and silly and just a joy to watch. Won't spoil any of it, but the werewolf episode has the best laugh I've had in quite some time in it. The city …
  • I just finished it (though it cut off abruptly at ~55 minutes). It was a good watch. Love seeing the guys getting some TV promotion. I wish my local station would do the same (C'mon KTLA. It'd be awesome to see them sit down with Sam Rubin or Dayna …
  • I really think the only people on the board (based on just the nature of storytelling and weaving it to any satisfying conclusion) are Sansa, Tyrion, Jon, Dany (though, a real longshot at this point. too dark, and I think any chance at her redemptio…
  • Murderbear said: Lol to Bronn. I love the dude but no way in hell does Dany honor that promise from Tyrion. Yeah, I think Bronn is a non-starter. I get that they love shocking surprises, but they are still beholden to some form of narrativ…
  • mcp6842 said: If everyone expected Dany to burn the city down it would've been anticlimactic.  I'm not saying that's cool, I just think it was purposely done in a way to keep the shock value in tact... true to GoT form.  . My problem with …
  • HartParkridge said: Travis said: I think what happened with Dany was earned (perhaps expedited, but set up at least) and could have made sense, but it was executed poorly. Really, all they truly needed to do was articulate what she was…
  • LordBy said: Maybe a quiet voiceover narration of her thoughts while she’s staring at the keep and the bells are ringing (they know about Jon, they’ll never love me, he’ll never love me. BURN THEM ALL). Maybe that’s too heavy handed and you…
