Re: The son of "What the hell are YOU staring at?"

Punisher: War Zone came out the same year as Iron Man , and gives us a glimpse of the horrific alternate universe we missed out on where comic book movies are the brainless puerile male power fantasies that you would assume they would be. The high contrast production design, Mountain Dew Code Red v...

Is Disney just doing their own streaming service or is it something I can find on Hulu/Amazon?

Re: Words I Happen to Dislike

I don't understand stan. Like is it meant to refer to superfans or toxic fans or people who hate shit? I have seen it used in a number of different ways and since I wasn't disaffected enough in my suburban high school to listen to Eminem I have no frame of reference.

How are real estate/rental photos so bad? Do landlords not look at pictures before they post them online? And what fucking justification is there for ads without photos when everyone is carrying a camera with them at all times?

Re: What are you reading?

But if you ain't got anything better, and you don't, whadda we talking about? We're talking about fundamental flaws in the myths underlying the social institutions that fail in their ostensible functions. It's either naive or intellectually dishonest to reject critiques of those myths and instituti...

If we're admitting that Natural Rights are a social construct, then referring to them as Natural, much less spinning a creation myth about where they come from and how they continue to exist despite being regularly violated is already a Noble Lie. The ontology of Natural Rights requires a foundation...

Peter Fonda, 79 As I look through his filmography, I think I've only seen 3-4 movies he was in. Of those, I'd say the best was The Limey . I like Easy Rider , but mainly for all the footage of Route 66 and Monument Valley. Yeah the only movies I remember him in are Easy Rider, The Limey, and Escape...
