When I was a tween / teen in the early 90s my family didn't have cable but we took a lot of road trips. On every trip I would spend as MUCH TIME AS POSSIBLE in the hotel room to watch MTV and VH1. The video that represented the glory of music videos to me was "Black Hole Sun". Pauper of th...

Oh my goodness the memories. I probably only played... oof... five games? Ever? All when I was 11 or 12. But I remember every sculpt and every little piece of furniture. I'm not crying (I have no more weakness to purge), but my human half feels something. That does not happen every day. Pauper of th...

The Dark Tower. Idris Elba + Matthew McConaughey. Stephen King movie

https://i.ytimg.com/vi/ULDwu2HLUrA/maxresdefault.jpg Terrific! But is that Blaine the Monorail (honest-to-god antagonist from the third book) or Charlie the Choo-Choo (fictitious evil spectre from the later books)? Man, what a great series. Pauper of the Surf / Jester of Tortuga

Here's an actual transcript of me watching the trailer:

"AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGHaaaaaAAAAAAAAAAAAAHOOOOOLEEEEEEESHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIT"

Speaking as a nerd for the books it looks legit. What do the non-initiates think and feel?

WOW. That's awesome. My 2005 Hyundai Elantra finally went away at about 218,000 and I thought THAT was an accomplishment. And yes it is very cold. And everything is frozen. Prayers.

Glad to hear it's good. I always felt like Hollywood shafted Dev Patel by letting him be in The Last Airbender. He deserves all the accolades and success he can get after that disaster.

No network play to my major disappointment. HOWEVER. I will say that I play this semi-successfully with my barely-average-aptitude 6 and 3 year old boys and it's a good time.

Sam Neill turns 70 in September. That means I am old and I will die one day.

Psyched about Goldblum being in JW2 though. That's enough to help me sleep at night.

Is that true? I thought Marvel Studios owned full rights to Hulk. 2008's The Incredible Hulk was a Marvel Studio production following Iron Man. I always thought they haven't done another Hulk solo movie because those have done the worst historically. Okay according to this 2016 HuffPo article Marve...

The only problem I have... it was Beta Ray Bill (who also has the powers of Thor) that fought hulk in Planet Hulk, not Thor. Yeah but they still can't make a full Hulk movie of any kind due to something something movie rights something. So getting a taste of Planet Hulk in a Thor movie is the best ...

Are they going to use scenes from the editing room floor? Hollywood's franchise machines are so sophisticated these days that I'm surprised they don't have their key actors and actresses all do tons of "just in case" work. Hours and hours in front of a green screen saying various lines wh...
