Re: Random Observations C.A (306 pages is enough)

I see your point, but I do hope that he returns to acting. I don't want to see him blackballed from the industry, nor do I want to see him turn into some sort of Rohrschach figure who's a hero on the social justice lecture circuit or whatever and used by the other side as proof of how broken the le...

Re: Calling 2024 for AOC

As a progressive, she should be ashamed to live in a place with such gender-normative saunas! :lol: I also recently heard (on the internet and was too lazy to confirm) that she didn't even pay rent at her NY pad because her parents owned it. Then again, sitcoms have led me to believe everyone in Ne...

Re: OFFS: The Forsakening

Did you hang around for a while to see if you could get stung by said radioactive mud dauber and gain superpowers? Mud daubers look like wasps, but (un)fortunately don't sting or bite. I suppose you could try eating it. But the only superpower you'd get is being able to change into cape, mask, and ...

Re: OFFS: The Forsakening

So I worked on a submarine tender. Navy submarines are powered by nuclear reactors. We had a division that handled all things radioactive (cleanest space on the ship). For instance, for me to go aboard a submarine, they had to issue me a dosimeter. It was like a little plastic bullet that you wore o...

Re: I don't wanna see that!!!!

Amazon sprung a trailer for The ABC Murders on me. John Malkovich as Poirot? What the actual fucking fuck? His accent is dinner-theater terrible, by the way. The greatest piece of film criticism ever uttered was by Lindsay Ellis when she described John Malkovich's acting style as: A dissatisfied Ol...

Yeah. Politics is full of landmines. If you're going to survive in the game, you either gotta know where they are or not give a shit what you blow up and be content with marginalization.
So you agree, the President is marginalized.

This is crazy 1% bullshit but it really bugs me that the ballet puts me, as a single-seat subscriber this year, amid a mass of one-off fucksticks. The opera has the sense to pair me with another single-seat subscriber.

Also this shit is already four minutes late.
