  • U.S. Politics Vol. 7: A Dream of 2020

    I've been staying far, far away from these threads.  Historically, I never do well with these.  And I also hate arguing online (with a couple of exceptions in the past where I couldn't help but to speak my mind).  But I am compelled to say something tonight.

    I found out about an hour ago that my cousin and his wife have lost everything they own to the Camp Fire in Butte County.  They are now technically homeless, but are staying with his daughter and her family.  I saw Trump's tweet from yesterday, blaming California's lack of forest management for these devastating wildfires and threatening to revoke any federal aid if Cali can't get it together.  So, first - these forests are federal lands as part of the US Forest Service/National Forests.  Guess who cut funding and essentially took away much of the ability to manage them in the first place?  Second - what in the actual fuck?   What kind of president human being shows such a public lack of empathy or sympathy or even neglects to offer one small word of solace to the thousands who have been displaced or who have lost family or friends to this awful fire?   I believe my exact words at the end of my reply to him were "Fuck you, you insensitive piece of shit".

    Can it be 2020 already?  And also, if I may ask, please consider a donation to the American Red Cross.  There are hundreds of thousands in our state who are in dire need of disaster relief.

    Edited to add:  he did finally tweet his sympathy and support of the fire victims, but it was 100% spin control.  Someone pointed out that it was written at what would have been 11pm Paris time (you know, where he was busy *not* making his scheduled appearance due to rain), so a) did he actually write it or did one of his social media lackeys?  and b) if he did write it, guess what? You made your true feelings known in your first post, asshole.

  • 905 - What Comes After

    I get that not everyone still likes the show, but the consistent weekly hatewatch play by play is just...  well, ok then.  We can agree to disagree on some things. 

    I just got home and am tuning in now.  Watching Rick and Herschel's scene.  It's touching, especially given that this was Scott Wilson's last scenes ever.

    If anyone wants to reformat that if it isn’t hiding spoilers fee
    free to - I don’t see the spoilers but then I see them so not sure?? 
    You have to do a [ spoiler ] and [ / spoiler ] (no spaces between brackets] for the whole thing, not just for the edit part.  

    Aside from that, omg.  Freaking Jadis.  I never liked that woman.

    Thanks, Michelle.  I was looking for a place to mention Littlefinger in the podcast but never found one.
    lol, when he first appeared on the screen the man sitting behind me said “ah, fuck this guy” & a few people laughed.  He’ll just always be Littlefinger.  
  • Bohemian Rhapsody trailers

    I just got out from seeing this - it was SOOOOOO GOOD!!!!! The theater was packed and a lot of people applauded at the end, and almost everyone stayed through the end of the credits until the lights came on. They need to hand the Oscar to Rami Malek right now.  Forget the ceremony, just give him all the awards. I can’t wait to hear what the guys thought!
