Re: ♫ Star Wars, nothing but...Star Wars! ♫

The what now. All the novels and comic books and what not that was considered "canon" before the Disney purchase. I've read some of it, and it's mostly very self-serious. I feel like the more you dig into and flesh out all the history and back story, the more the fans lose sight of the or...

Re: ♫ Star Wars, nothing but...Star Wars! ♫

hot take: most star wars EU novels are garbage (thrawn trilogy and some x-wing books are excluded). Of course they are. And even the video games (many of which I LOOOOOVE), are written without humor. The curmudgeons that Mojo is talking about are the ones who would rather have a KOTOR movie where e...

Re: ♫ Star Wars, nothing but...Star Wars! ♫

We can assume that Ren’s version of who Rey’s parents are is bulls***, right? Why would we assume that? It may be right, but the theme of TLJ was subverting your expectations and the original movies, so it fits very neatly. Yeah, maybe you're right. The very final scene kinda ties into that too. My...

Re: Orioles are shopping Machado (and he wants to go back to SS)

Losing 4 Years of Russell, for 1 year of Machado and then a 300+M FA contract in 2019, vs keeping 4 years of Russell and spending 350-400M on Harper. Pretty much a no brainer from my side. Of course that's assuming Harper accepts our offer over the 4 or 5 other $400 million offers on the table. No ...

Re: THE Bryce Harper in 2018 Thread

The 2020 version of the Phillies in my Road to the Show this time has their lineup anchored by Harper and Schwarber. And Rizzo is on the White Sox. Bryant is still on the Cubs, but he's mostly just OK, while Heyward is still there and inexplicably turned into a hitting superstar. It's pretty horsef...
