  1. I never watch pretty much any sport totally live. Record it to the DVR and time it for all the following. NFL fast fwd through adds, time outs, video reviews, heck even save 20 secs fast fwd per down. Don’t need talking heads in between quarters etc etc. Well you get the picture. To a lesser extent the college basketball I watch. But still fast fwd the adds and the endless timeouts late in the game.
  2. Black Mirror. Thought I should watch i the series before watching Bandersnatch? Just read on this is internet thing that I should start at episode 2, watch them all and finish with episode 1. Then the snatch. Thoughts?

    I am still struggling with this whole not going out in the rain thing. Not a squeak out of the right. I can’t recall when it was but the right/Republican’s/Fox News lost their shit when Hillary/Obama/maybe John Kerry? didn’t where a flag pin. Heck even this kneeling thing pales into insignificance. Where is the outrage on the right?

    Lucky he happened to have a recording device handy. This is going to get very interesting.
  5. Film: He Never Died. Henry Rollins in a roll that is suited to him. A very talented individual that has done everything. I am not even going to say what it is about. Maybe horror, a bit of violence and blood, no sex or drugs. An interesting take of a very well used theme. 8/10 wba. Having said that drugs and alcohol at this end could be affecting perceptions. I also kind of fond of the lead actress kind of hot. ps no nudity.
  6. So Penny Dreadful. Five episodes in. Does it conclude or was it cancelled without an ending? Is it worth the time to watch? Then again not that I have anything better to do. But I am sure I could conjure up another series to watch.
  7. Weird. just finished it this minute. I mean I saw the last episode just now. Just check VT before to bed, as you do, to see what is occurring. Anyway was well worth it. Looking forward to the second season. 8.1 wba

    Yeah I find it a tad offensive. My wife is down the corridor in bed. Metastatic cancer. Maybe one month or so left. She is a scientist (geneticist) with over 100 peer reviewed papers. The amount of research being done is astounding. To think some people believe in some grand conspiracy actually fills me, well, with a bit of rage.
  10. Dam it. Well into my cups when I read that the other day. Bits and boobs. Who doesn't like bits and boobs.
  11. The one thing I do remember. He never used the bench. Granted there might not have been much there but you bought them. Make a change and play them. I was a wee bit frustrated with that.

    So I live in Charlottesville. The bookstore I work at is on the mall one block from the site of the rally. I didn't see any broken windows, Molotov cocktails, looting. I haven't seen any footage of journalists being punched. People with cameras where certainly in the middle of the whole thing. But targeted? These things as far as I am aware did not occur in Charlottesville. Lots of pepper spray, people punching, kicking generally trying to beat the crap out of each other. No weapons discharged. Just thought I would add.

    Yes that picture was from last month. Not picking on anyone but I want to defend Charlottesville. I sort of take exception to the idea that "they're a regular thing". That sort of implies to me that it is a long standing and on going issue. I have lived here in Charlottesville for around eight years and this is certainly not a regular thing. The issue is the potential removal a statue of General Lee (confederate general). This removal of monuments and the confederate flag is an on going thing now in the south. The capital of SC removed the confederate flag from their capital building not so long ago. So these nazi words removed have chosen c-ville as protest place. So now we have had the nauseating pleasure of nazis spouting hateful shit in my city three times in the last three months. The majority of these nazis came from organizations based out of state. It was a wild day. The police were always going to struggle to control things. I live a couple of blocks from the downtown mall. Also work at one of the bookstores there. Walked through the intersection where the car drove maybe a bare 10 minutes earlier. Don't know what to say. It was a horrible day. Things were calmer today.
  14. So my wife was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer a while ago. It has since metastasizes to pretty much everywhere. We both think religion is a load of old bollocks. She has gone to many retreats focusing on meditation and mindfulness at the Buddhist place up the road. It has helped her tremendously with the upcoming conclusion. I have adopted a more liquid answer. Maybe I should go as well. Who knows. If it works for you.
