Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

That's [expletive] terrible. Way to go whoever chopped that nonsense. Yup. IIRC all parties involved decided it wouldn't work at all if they went that direction and changed it to her continuing to be a villain. That ending makes a lot more sense though. If she was really trying to lose why not trad...

Re: Movie Thread 2: The Sequel

the batman movies were basically comedies and man of steel was just a regular old origin movie. the "edginess" or whatever of those movies is just played up, it's essentially just a meme at this point. I have no problem with "dark" Batman movies, and I think I actually like the ...

Re: Politics & Current Events

while I was in London last week I noticed the British press routinely refers to Trump's primary success, which remains completely unimpressive to me, as if it was the general campaign and that he is in the process of locking up the presidency, rather than the nomination of a dying party that actual...

Re: Music Thread 2.0

"Low End Theory" changed my life. I always listened to hip-hop growing up, but this album was one of the first I bought based on merit and not because I figured it had a lot of cuss words. I remember exactly where I was the first time I played this album/cassette. A Tribe Called Quest mad...

Re: This Thread is About Comics

Some other fun stuff to dig back to are James Robinson's Starman and Grant Morrison's run on JLA . Marvel also recently put Alan Moore's Miracleman back into print...

Re: Politics & Current Events

The Right in Europe has risen much in the same way Trump has risen here; based off of fear and anger. Part of that is anger directed towards immigrants (and sure as [expletive] not just Muslim/Arbaic/Persian ones; they're just the most obvious flavor du jour). Strawmen, Mojo? The subject is Europe,...

Put down the bong, dude.

Some genuinely awful people support Trump and people and some are horrified at him and his campaign.

I mean, if you don't buy that one, try any of the dozens of other similar videos out there at this point.

Re: Politics & Current Events

Conservatives are conservatives in large part because they're not fans of change; trying to convince them to follow the Republicans to a new party, especially via a retread candidate like, say, Romney, doesn't seem like a recipe for success. What would make more sense would be to deny Trump the nomi...
