  • ken hale said: I’m experiencing a sort of yearning in the sense that my life is lacking some weekly Bald Move coverage of...anything, really.  With GoT and Walking Dead done for, as well as Better Call Saul, Fargo, and I guess Westworld (ugh)…
  • There are apparently 10 episodes in expanse season 4, so if you have time to do the first 5 in advance with screeners and then speak 1.5-2days doing the full treatment on the next five you could have the full season done in 10 days theoretically. Th…
  • Looks like it’s the old I’ll withhold $250mil appropriated by Congress from you (Ukraine) unless you investigate my potential opponent (Biden) deal. Totally normal stable genius stuff. Not impeachable at all. Would’ve been totally cool with the G…
  • This reaction is like banning all lettuce after an E.Coli outbreak, or banning all Mexican food because of a Hepatitis A outbreak at a couple of Mexican restaurants. Some folks are apparently using a harmful additive in some vape “juice.” That addi…
  • Agree the next movie should be fine for Sony from a profitability perspective. The risk is the next 5-10 movies. Spider-Man would have been in at least that many in the next couple of phases of the MCU. If the next movie isn’t great, then Sony will …
  • Also not looking at payroll tax reduction, then definitely not looking at payroll tax reduction, then not looking at payroll tax reduction. Also caved on universal background checks to the NRA, and then denied caving to universal background checks …
  • These are big companies trying to do what’s best for themselves. I trust Marvel to make better movies consistently based on past performance so this is a risk for Sony, but if they can build this property out with good writing/directing/casting/prod…
  • Territory for sale isn’t really in vogue for the last 70yrs or so because societies typically care more about what residents think than they used to. A quiet inquiry is harmless, though loaded up with irony in this case, and even if that got leaked …
  • Following the story of a 20 year old d-bag in Missouri who walking into a Walmart wearing body armor with an assault rifle, pistol, and 100+ rounds of ammo. He was detained by an off duty firefighter with a concealed carry permit until he was arrest…
  • Dee said: @LordBy None of us here are debating whether Trump was correct linking video games - of course he wasn’t. We are not playing into NRA talking points and we have all immediately dismissed the idea that video games cause mass shooting…
  • Debating the effects of media on violence just enables the cynical attempts to change the subject that the NRA and its adherents are attempting. That issue was studied long age and it isn’t the issue we should be debating. Are we as a society willi…
  • Seems to me that their strengths are adaptation of existing works and managing big productions. If they stick with adapting stuff, then they could be really good. If they’ve drank enough of their own koolaide to think they can do original content w…
  • And of course there are “Morty’s Mind Blowers” where we see that Rick has erased dozens of episodes where Rick was wrong and Morty was right, or where Rick otherwise made an ass out of himself, from Morty’s memory to preserve his pride and sense of …
  • asmallcat said: I never really understood the diversity or population arguments - 35% of the country is ALREADY on medicare or medicaid, not the mention the few million who use the VA, so it's not like we'd be starting at 0. I also don't thin…
  • MattyWeaves said: So because I consider this a safe space to ask questions, is impeachment really a good idea? Like, I get why people want it, but it's not going to remove Trump from office as far as I know because the Senate is never going…
  • Biden’s “...anyway, my time is up, sorry.” line would make a pretty good campaign add against him. The man tends to be a walking internet meme-generator on the campaign trail. Trump’s well funded social media campaign apparatus will turn him into a…
  • Folks get emotional about this and everyone, myself included, comes into the discussion with biases. If you think that Biden did well last night, then I don’t think you’re being rational. The degree to which he did badly can certainly be debated an…
  • LordBy said: I figure we have to vote 3-4 off of the island so the next rounds are more-manageable. - Delaney - Gabbard - Ryan Fourth is more on the bubble, but either DeBlasio or Inslee. I was surprised that DeBlasio sounded like a legit can…

  • Mueller being compelled to testify by subponea is going to be anticlimactic for everyone. They won’t be able to rattle him into saying more than he intends to. Get ready for answers like: - I’d refer you to the Special Council report submitted as m…
  • My alternate conspiracy theory is that the resurgence in heroin use following the introduction and heavy marketing of OxyContin in the late 90s. Probably a bit of both with resurgent demand from opioid pain medication misuse and new supply lines ope…
