  1. From The Ringer's movie guy, https://letterboxd.com/seanfennessey/list/tony-scott-ranked/
  2. I watched it on like day 2 of shit getting real in the US, and it freaked me out a little. The mortality rate obviously isn't nearly as high, but the rest of the qualities seem pretty similar, especially for a work of pure fiction. We're up to almost 1.2M cases in the US, probably hitting 70k deaths after today. And that's just the confirmed number. It's a lot! And with many places opening up on days that they literally have the highest number of new cases/deaths, it doesn't seem like this is going away any time real soon.
  3. Thankfully it's only going to be like 800,000 that die.
  4. I went with the blue light option too, because even though I don't entirely trust it, $50 for potentially saving my eyes seemed reasonable. I'm not sleeping better, but that's due to other factors. I do think I have less eye strain, but that's a tough thing to quantify.
  5. Nice glasses. I picked up a new pair at the end of the year because I needed to spend some FSA money, and went in a different direction than I normally would since I was just getting them to be extra. They're quite chromy, but I think I got more compliments on them than anything else I've ever purchased. https://www.warbyparker.com/eyeglasses/men/graham/polished-silver
  6. I ended up in two "poker clubs" that were hosting tourneys at least once a day. One in the $40-75 range, one in the mostly $10 range that my more casual friends play in. The guy running the cheap one set up a whole WPT style earning system as a "league." He's putting way too much time and effort into it, but everyone else is having a good time. These guys are almost uniformly mediocre, and whenever I've gotten to a final table with chips to play, I really beat the shit out of everyone. It's comical. I make my mistakes early, cuz jesus having patience in a $10 game with a bunch of people playin
  7. Never heard this term, and I like it. More for the pleasant lingual sound than the idea, but thanks either way. Pretty great time to be a tax collector and in charge of unemployment. Certainly no mental weight associated with any of that.
  8. Unfortunately, it's just a running gag, with no actual nudity. You'll have to search out Willem Dafoe's "confusingly large" penis instead.
  9. Is Buck in season 1? If not, he does show up a time or in the future. You'll also be missing out on JK Simmons as a retired ballplayer with a huge hog in S3, I think. Amanda Peet got busy and isn't in future seasons as much.
  10. Hanky, this site is pretty perfect for that question. I use it almost daily. https://www.justwatch.com/us/search?q=brockmire Also, Brockmire is really good.
  11. Briarpatch is a solid show on USA. Twin Peaks like feel in Texas, based off a novel. One and done season with Rosario Dawson, Kim Dickens, Jay Ferguson. One or two episodes left.
  12. I've had two different groups of acquaintances start "home games" on Pokerstars. Everyone venmo's the host before the tourney, and then you use play money to enter the tourneys. It's been a decent distraction.
  13. I'd like you to be right, but I just don't see where you get any of that confidence. I think he had like one okay debate, but aside from that, every public appearance looked like a disaster from the beginning of the campaign. And Trump has it set up so it literally doesn't matter he says or does. That base isn't going anywhere.
  14. I didn't say Biden would be worse, I said he's possibly more mentally unfit because of what appears to rapidly increasing dementia-like symptoms. And because of that, mixed with the ever-improving voter suppression tactics, it feels impossible that Biden will win. Whatever, it all sucks. Liz would have tried to change a few good things, but we need a full overhaul. Republicans are so much better at the game. Rules and laws don't matter. Why would a president ever follow them again?
  15. Multiple high-level Republicans, including Trump, have flat out said that if more people vote, the R's won't win. 20 somethings being loud online and not voting is a big problem for Dems, but jesus christ, supporting Biden feels terrible. He's possibly more incontinent than Trump. And he's still against universal health care during a ****ing pandemic. I will miss Bernie.
  16. Just so we're clear: Brvy took part and enjoyed the voting process in Wisconsin today (which is a separate baffling question). The supreme court refusing to allow measures to make it safer for everyone to vote is criminal. As a public official I try extremely hard not to ever post on Facebook. So I'm airing it here to you 10.
  17. Is coffee a dick? I don't get it.
  18. Melancholia will fuck you right up.
  19. I watched Contagion last night after the nutty basketball stuff. That is a movie that is scarily applicable! Having the live fantasy draft on Saturday. It's an expansion year, up to 16 people, with one team having co-managers, making it 17 guys in one basement. It is a large basement, but the fear is certainly a subtext to the whole thing right now. Plus the uncertainty of the season, and this is shaping up to be an odd draft, in a bad way. I rename the league every year, trying to have something lightly amusing with what year the league is in. It's our 17th year, and early last week thi
  20. The Fed's meeting next week and will probably drop the rates again, so definitely hold out for a little while.
  21. I don't know what the riot talk is about. They're a very inclusive, positive energy duo. The race riot line makes no sense. I'm very confused. I've seen them twice in smaller settings, and they're two of my better recent show experiences.
