Re: Corona(virus)? ITS NOT EVEN BEER DAMMIT!!!

Which could be that they ended up being pieces of shit that didn't really work and delivering on the contract would've put the new owners on the hook for a fuckton of liability. Could also be that the acquiring company has a lot of government contracts and contacts, and ensured that the contract we...

Re: Your COVID-19 Playlist

I'm not sure of the corona tie-in... If there's an impending death, or fear of death, or panic/insanity motif, it went on the list. Some of them are pretty tenuous. And then Daughter because in the face of zombiepocalypse, that's just good clean fun. Fair enough. And Iron Maiden is almost never the...

The End of the World as We Know I-REM. Obvious, but necessary. Land of Confusion-Genesis. Not directly relevant, but somehow, the feel is right. Seasons in the Abyss-Slayer. Again, a feel thing.

Angry FB leftists are saying these pols should go to prison for life. Odd how their concerns about America's prison population and incarceration culture go out the window when their ox is gored.
The prison outrage applies to people. These are politicians we're talking about.

I think the idea is that a different vote implies very different values. The kind that can queer a relationship. Not saying that view is right-just that that's the thinking.

Saw his limo go by twice today. (He flew in to the airbase I'm on this week). Got a glimpse of the sillhouette the second time. I wasn't thrilled to see the Orange one, but it was interesting to see all the security surrounding him, and the motorcade full of odd vehicles.

Re: Casting The Stand: Prestige TV Edition

I don't know about his endings because I won't read his books, in spite of the fact I think he writes about the best dialog of any author ever. I don't understand horror as a genre of fiction. Why do people want to feel anxious/disgusted? I will never get that. Watching/reading horror is always so ...

Re: Casting The Stand: Prestige TV Edition

Stephen King does NOT know how to end a book. Agreed, which is why I've never much cared for him. He's one of those authors who just starts writing and sees where it takes him, which is fine if it takes him to a payoff, but more often than not it just takes him to a long enough work of narrative pr...

Re: Casting The Stand: Prestige TV Edition

The Stand is a damn good novel, but the deus ex trashcan ending was damn near inexcusable. I liked the 100 pages after that, and the island scene is a solid end, especially in light of RF's other appearances in the King universe.

I think Eric's questions still apply here. I also think this is a difficult set of questions to address because you can't really discuss consciousness without addressing qualia, which are at least somewhat ineffable within human beings, let alone in other creatures.
