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

Markets, creative destruction, yadda yadda and all that, I'm kinda saddened by the collapse of Sears. Thing is, Sears collapsed twenty years ago. It's been on life support. And now they're pulling the plug. Well, yeah. Still nostalgia-sad. I got the sads back when Kmart put in fast food chains in p...

Re: To DVDs and Beyond: The Netflix Thread

“The Haunting of Hill House” is really good, despite a few flaws. The retelling centers around a family that planned to flip Hill House, but fled after a particularly bad night in which the mother (played by Carla Gugino, *rowr*) died, and the now-adult children dealing with and confronting the tra...

Re: the list of those things which are not food

Is the cannoli the most overrated dessert concept in history? Could be, could be. I'm gonna go with molten lava cake. It may not go the distance like the cannoli, but unlike the cannoli it tastes of sadness. I'd go with cheesecake of any variety. That stuff is in 95% of restaurants of any price-bra...

Re: States-ism

I want fewer voters, not more. Like maybe no votes for employees of any level of government. Or require that voters had to be born in the lower 48 and all parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents were US citizens (tough luck for you, McCain and George Romney!). I'm willing to hear other creati...

Re: To DVDs and Beyond: The Netflix Thread

I liked Hinterland at first, although Richard Harrington's Droopy Dog face wore on me after a while and I lost interest by the last season. It is also a bit confusing that every third person is named Rhys. That said, the accents are great to listen to (but yes, subtitles, please.) Dammit Ellie. Now...

Re: Podcasts - Watcha listening to?

Two for Tea is a new podcast by Iona Italia and Helen Pluckrose. I follow both on Twitter because they're essentially critical of critical theory and postmodernism. (At least I think they are; I'm often fuzzy of what these terms actually mean, tbh.) The first episode, at least what I've heard so far...

Re: To DVDs and Beyond: The Netflix Thread

There was a little bit of a discussion about moody EU crime dramas a while ago, I think on the "size of the screen" thread. I gave Hinterland another try this weekend, and this time it clicked. I like it. Although I did put the subtitles on becasue some of the Welsh accents are anodd iawn i'w ddeall.

Re: It's not the size of the screen...

Is anyone watching Castle Rock? I'm only a few minutes in but it seems really dumb. A spooky prison! How groundbreaking! :roll: And it seems like the story might center on the prison guards, which of course just makes me hope Pennywise will pop up soon to fucking murder them all. Got maybe 4 episod...
