Re: What are you drinking?

Yes if you know just a bit and ask just a few questions, you get treated really well. Notably, you aren’t “wooo! Bachelorette par-tay!!” Good producers fucking hate those visits and it’s a lot of their volume. So many people started getting a bit into wine chemistry with me and then stopped and apo...

Re: Home $weet Home

Oh man! I’m constantly ranting about vent hoods and open shelving in the kitchen when watching remodeling shows. Like “Jesus Christ,why don’t you just put your family in a pig sty where they can wallow in their own shit and then you can throw dinner in there and let them root around for it. The intr...

Re: Home $weet Home

The whole tiny house movement makes me :roll: The thing where they gush about how much they want to live in a dollhouse. The worst is when the guy that built it goes “and here’s how you change your table into a bed” and it takes ten minutes and you have to put the cushions outside while you’re doing...

Re: It's all good man!

So am I the only one that's still wrapped up in this show? There's a fuckton of analysis I'd like to talk about, but not if no one else is interested. I'm behind. I still haven't watched S3.

Re: Podcasts - Watcha listening to?

When he argues for example that the ethics of atheists are not based in rationality but in contemporary norms... I would expect rationality and contemporary norms to walk side by side. "Don't be prejudiced" is an ethic. If contemporary norms are shifting to anti-immigrant, the rational atheist shou...

Re: This is the thread for people who died, died.

I find it interesting that CNBC believes that their audience knows who Grover Norquist and Joe Arpaio are, but Ron Jeremy needs context. Apparantly Hof is still going to be on the ballot for the state leg seat he was running for, and will likely win due to the partisan lean of the district. Fuck. T...

Re: Petty annoyances

I've been enjoying the show Good Bones on HGTV -- it certainly doesn't hurt that the younger woman is a super hot freckled redhead -- but the title really annoys me. To me it implies a house that might need some cosmetic work but that is fundamentally well-designed and/or well-built; yet every epis...

CNBC has probably mentioned Norquist and Arpaio a hundred times in the past few years and Jeremy maybe once. So I'd say they're not wrong about that.
