Re: TV thread

Just binge watched the holy hell out of The Punisher. Bernthal is without question the best Punisher: meathead badass with a metric ton of vulnerability.

Ryan Rolison K’d 12 and gave up a hit in 5 innings in his first start of the year. He threw 24 sliders with 19 of them being strikes.

I'm tired of hearing the so-called "responsible gun owners" rally their defenses after each incident, chiming in that they are upstanding citizens whose guns will never fall into the wrong hands. Let's call a spade a spade. You are selfish, insecure, horsefeathers who value your ability t...

You’re right, it doesn’t matter. I was just curious.

Although I suppose clinical psychogists have an interest in these losers being captured alive.

Sure, the phrasing and use of it in that context is wonky, but Lennon was certainly an artistic genius. He was among the sharpest wits of his generation and the books and songs he wrote were just brilliant work.

The weirdest thing about them is sometimes they seem better at playing instruments other than the ones they were known for. It seems like most of the time in their later albums I'll hear it and think, "oh, that was a good guitar riff," or, "hey, nice hook with that bass," and in...

Indeed. There’s lots of levels and different skill sets within “musicianship”. Those studio musicians, just studio like musicians now, are virtuosos for the most part. However, could those guys create Sgt. Pepper? No. Nevertheless, calling Paul McCartney a terrible bass player, even in comparison to...

Watched Ingrid Goes West last night on Hulu. Dark comedy with Aubrey Plaza and Elizabeth Olsen about social media obsession. Highly enjoyed it. Would definitely recommend. Ice Cube's son is a main character in it and he really stole the show. He has a bright future in acting. https://www.youtube.com...
