  1. They've been on that train for a while. They just usually do a better job of making it funny.
  2. Media: Bodyguard on Netflix is pretty good. Think Robb Stark in Homeland S1. Homecoming is really good on Amazon (30 minute drama!). New Vince Staples is on the good side as well.
  3. On the real downside is that 55,000 Chicagoans voted for someone who was literally a member of the American Nazi Party.
  4. Brvy, all your nonsense about Iowa being good is proved false by 20 fucking years of Steve King.
  5. I'm bored by the very thought of it, and may need to take a nap.
  6. Ah, well, congrats on the seeing the light. I'm currently battling some AIDS-lite thing my kindergartner picked up. Not loving it.
  7. I thought we established a long time that you were going to have to settle for someone in your class?
  8. Your wine takes are fair and balanced. Happy drinking. 4 hours is too much extra traveling time, but I like that thought process. I'm sure there will be similar opportunities with less time infringement.
  9. I don't quite understand the emphatic switch to wine, but I'm here for it.
  10. At first I thought this was about the Bojack funeral episode, and I thought it was a really great comment.
  11. Welcome, but no. It's pretty sparse.
  12. It is stupid, but at the same time, you have to learn how to draft any league you join. Would I set up my league in such a stupid, nonsensical way? Only if I wanted to scam my GM's! But you adjust. Here's what I came away with: Curry - $11 Kemba - $31 Oladipo - $18 Millsap - $19 Ingram - $15 (a reach) Mirotic - $10 Cauley-Stein - $8 Olynyk - $5 Lou Williams - $9 Chris Paul - $31 (paid $50+ last year for him) VanVleet - $2 (took him early as a block on a team w/no money. A waste in the end) Taurean Prince - $10 Wiggins - $9 (by far my best value, even though he's a cancerous,
  13. The league is weighted stupidly towards big men, and it's head-to-head points. It's bizarre and stupid, but I still enjoyed it. 3 pointers don't count, steal/block/offensive reb all worth 2 points. So, defensive guys and deep threats are insanely unvaluable, while triple-double threats and Andre Drummond are worth way more. Ratios don't matter, unless it's a really bad FT shooter. Last year I mistakenly paid $47 for Nurkic, because I was all yoked up on Jokic, and didn't realize it for about 20 minutes when I saw Jokic's name still available. Then it turned out that Nurkic was a top 50 guy (he
  14. Got my live auction basketball draft tomorrow night. Last year was the inaugural season. I ended up taking home the trophy. It's a keeper league, with the catch being you can keep anyone you want for $5 more than what you paid. There was a FAAB budget of $200, and any FA you acquired had the same keeper rules. The commish had Curry and Cousins, both of whom were hurt, and both at like $50+ price tags, and wanted to game his own system (like an ass). So in the playoffs, he dropped them both, and since only 3 people were paying attention, and two of them didn't have money, I ended up getting Ste
  15. Rodger Sherman‏Verified account @rodger 3h3 hours ago look, Scott Frost took UCF from 0-12 to 13-0 in two seasons and he can't do the same at Nebraska unless they go 0-12 first
  16. 5 grand in c-notes is like an inch thick. It's not like you need a duffle bag.
  17. I'm not saying you should like Annihilation, but comparing it in any way to a blockbuster action franchise is just plain wrong. The movie knows exactly what it's doing (which, again, feel free to hate) (and it's also not doing very much with the book as source material).
  18. Christ, finally an opinion I agree with, and I can't truly get behind it because it makes me feel like a bad lib.
  19. You're way closer to the doofus that stole from the city and camped in his backyard than you are to a great con man like Jimmy McGill. Let's see you roll one of your clients on your new big limit before comparing yourself to one of the greats.
  20. Essay liking this show bothers me. It's too good for you.
  21. I'm not sure what took me so long, but I had a revelation the other day: Dinosaur AIDS. Unrelated, but I'm heading to Cali tomorrow evening. Looking forward to touting the 2-year old monster on a plane for 6+ hours. Flight isn't until 6 pm, so hopefully he falls asleep rather quickly. Sister-in-law is having a baby shower. It's...open bar? And well over 100 people. Probably hit Disney on Monday. This is not cheap.
  22. I think it's been like that since The Lost World, when Malcolm became the returning hero with a daughter in trouble, and the parent T-rex's searching for their stolen baby. The weird "make scarier dinos through gene splicing technology" angle has certainly been overused these last two films, which, for a theme that wasn't great to begin with, does not add anything as it gets overplayed.
  23. No Hank, of course not. I see about two films a year in the theater.
  24. The Meg was okay. It certainly wasn't good, and was in fact pretty bad, but it's not a bad way to spend 90 minutes. Skyscraper is ****ing terrible, for many many reasons.
