  • I would actually like feedback particularly on how the GoT section of the wiki is organized; like it, hate it, what would you do different about it?
  • Praise the Old Gods and the New! Game of Thrones is finally live! Catch up on the entirey of Bald Move’s Game of Thrones coverage from instant takes to book reviews to game play footage all from the convenience of a moderately well organized series …
  • The big name media market is shrinking at an alarming rate and I do not care for a world where all the big movies are made by 4 or 5 companies for a variety of reasons. 
  • https://www.npr.org/2019/03/20/705009029/disney-officially-owns-21st-century-fox So I guess this is a thing now.  Chalk me up as not a fan of this result. 
  • It’s an amusing reminder that Donald Trump is a shitbag who can’t even speak well of the dead in his own party if they’ve ever had the temerity to put up a minimal amount of resistance to his efforts. Really I’d be much more concerned about his re-e…
  • If only there were some, oh I don’t know, Head of State type figure who could call for unity and harmony in these trying times instead of starting more anti-immigrant shit two days after a Muslim immigrant massacre. Boy, wonder what that world looks…
  • Like I said on the other thread, people will always find ways to kill other but it’s much harder to kill 50 people in a short time frame with a knife than it is with a gun. There’s an abundance of evidence to prove that mass shootings dramatically d…
  • I mean let’s not beat around the bush here, in 2015 NZ had 8 gun related deaths, meanwhile here in the US we had 13,000. This type of mass shooting in NZ is almost unheard of precisely due to their stricter gun laws and assuming they change their la…
  • I think I’m gonna combine this with the US thread come Monday and just have a general politics thread unless anyone has objections. 
  • Well you see Trav, when rich people steal millions from people it’s not a crime because they’re rich, but if you’re poor and caught with some weed you’re scum of the earth and deserve to go to jail forever, especially if you’re not white. At least t…
  • @Dee I see y’all have your fair share of nutcase racists politicians as well. Is this guy like a big name in the racist crowd or small time? https://www.vox.com/2019/3/15/18267077/australian-senator-new-zealand-attack-muslims-immigrants
  • I’m not saying don’t get worked up about low level corruption like this, by all means rich people almost to a tee get away with this shit all the time and it’s infuriating. I’m saying why is the low level stuff the only things people seem to get wor…
  • Joking aside, politics are so wrapped up in events these days I don’t know why there’s a distinction being made between two. You can’t really talk about certain things without bringing up various laws and ethos surrounding them which end up being in…
  • Don’t really have a solid opinion on candidates other than the fact that I’m morally certain that there won’t be two white dudes on the ticket. Biden/Beto ain’t gonna fly with majority minority Democratic base. Biden/Warren might, as might a Beto/Bo…
  • Same @Dee, this seems like an almost novel level of corruption given the ludicrous shit that goes on all the time on the global scale these days. Compared to all the stuff in “This Giant Beast” this just seems like such small potatoes; why aren’t mo…

  • I’m gonna start a new one of these that’s just general politics in about a week I think. 
  • Personally I’d prefer my pilots to be as smart as possible so I don’t actually see how Trump gets any credit here, does he want dumber people to fly planes? Automation has dramatically cut down on plane crashes since it’s been integrated into flight…
  • I don’t really believe children can be “evil” in any real sense. Are there evil people? Yeah sure, but I don’t even think Adolph fucking Hitler was an evil kid because that’s just silly, he was a normal kid who became an evil adult. Now I do believe…
  • Also being dead doesn’t mean you get to have an untarnished legacy either. If you were an asshole you deserve to be remembered as an asshole.
  • Yeah I get liking an artist for their work but if Mr. Rogers (God forbid) turned out to be some child predator or something 20 years down the road no amount of nostalgic goodwill would make me forgive him. Bill Cosby was a funny man but also turned …
  • I imagine someone has already suggested 3D World as a follow up to U but I’m just going to throw my vote in for that. The potential for stereoscopic shenanigans is abundant. 
  • I feel like Nintendo has to know by now that multiplayer Mario games actually encourage trolling more than cooperation but they can’t market them as “be a total asshole to your friends and loved ones”. 
  • https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/features/i-need-be-careful-texts-reveal-warner-bros-ceo-promoted-actress-apparent-sexual-relationship-1192660 The continuing misadventures of CEO’s behaving badly. 
  • Maybe the man has just become less curmudgeonly in his old age? Nah that doesn’t sound right. 
  • Oh no, please don’t let this be the precursor to the downfall of Harrison Ford. 
  • Let’s begin by asking ourselves: Why would Han Solo, Indiana Jones, Rick Deckard even; deign to contribute his massive talents to this of all movies? It’s not the best animated movie this year, it’s probably bottom 5 even. Is he behind on taxes? Doe…
  • If you haven’t received a card and are a club member it’s possible the guys don’t have your mailing address. You may want to contact them directly about that. 
  • https://nypost.com/2019/03/03/appless-hollywood-venture-marred-by-intrusive-execs/amp/?__twitter_impression=true In other entertainment news, the continuing adventures of old white dudes who really think they “get” what the kids want these days.
