    Losing a pet is tough. My 15 year old Beagle mix passed away this evening. The vet thinks it was a stroke. At her age, I knew things could go downhill quickly and suddenly, so I have been emotionally preparing myself for over a year now. It doesn’t make it better. At least the pain / inflammation drug we got from the vet made her more comfortable the last 8 months of her life. Well worth the cost. The other one (Beagle/ Rat Terrier) is doing fine with no major issues . He will be 15 in May.

    Decided to try out "The Most Stuf" after seeing them in the store. Yowza.
  3. If you must drive under the speed limit on the Interstate, get over in the right lane where you belong.
  4. Incredibles 2. Worthy sequel to the original. Lots of fun, but too long. You could easily cut 30 minutes. Films watched: 5
  5. Man that takes me back. How many people going to see this will have no memory of when the Internet looked like that? That makes me feel so freaking old.
  6. Also, having a grown man punch a small child in the face? Even one with superpowers? Not cool.
  7. Re-watched The Incredibles. I wanted to refresh my memory on this one before I watch the sequel. Very interesting that the opening is so similar to Marvel's Civil War. Mr. Incredible works for Evil Insurance Corp but is safe from Jigsaw because he goes out of his way to approve claims. Mr. Incredible should be in prison for crippling and nearly killing his boss at Evil Insurance Corp. The brutality of his attack is really shocking. This is basically an attempted murder. How is he a good guy again? This is not a nitpick. This is downright villainous behavior. There is a LOT of death in this film. Finding Gazerbeam's corpse was creepy. Maybe I notice these things more in kids movies now that I have kids, but wow is this violent. Overall, a lot of fun. Films Watched: 4
  8. I liked the movie back in the day. Haven't seen it in a long time. I like how Doom's origin was tied to the FF's origin, like in the Ultimate Comics book. I also re-watched Rise of the Silver Surfer a year or two ago, and it wasn't as bad as people say. I actually like it.

    I think it’s safe to say the Becky Lynch heel turn was the most unsuccessful heel turn in wrestling history. She is more over as a baby face than ever. The ovation she got on Raw was amazing. She is the most over performer on the roster right now. Now seems like the perfect time to turn Rousey heel.
  10. The Predator: Again, too much comedy. The treatment of autism/Asperger's as a near-joke was offensive. And: And: Films watched: 3
  11. For @The Master, I was the one who brought up wrongfully convicted people.

    And the examples I cited were in 1998. There were some good things about the Attitude Era, but I am glad it is over because there was so much garbage that went along with the good.

    Including Stone Cold Steve Austin forcibly sodomizing the owner of the company with a tube when McMahon was in the hospital, and a heel group trying to castrate Val Venis with a sword. Yes, there is a lot of stupid that makes it really obvious how fake this is. Mandy Rose's plot, in fairness, was extremely tame compared to a lot of stuff that has happened in WWE storylines. But it was still really stupid.
  14. The Syndrome: This is a documentary about people convicted of shaken baby syndrome based on junk science. I have been putting this one off for a year and a half because I knew it would make me angry. It is the good kind of anger, but I had to watch it in two segments nonetheless. This is a great documentary. You should watch it, and be prepared to be very angry while watching it. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt3183936/ Films watched: 2

    Sitting here trying to figure out why I am sore. Then I remembered I shoveled snow yesterday. If this was 1995, I would probably not be sore. Now get off my lawn.

    Smackdown last week: Mandy Rose lures Jimmy Uso to her hotel room, and admits she only did it because she hates Naomi and wants to break up her marriage. We all know wrestling is not real. But the show takes place as if it were real. In no workplace would this ever be tolerated. All three of them would be fired. Also, this is why people have described pro wrestling as a "male soap opera" for at least the last twenty years.
  17. Venom: Too many jokes. Way, way too many jokes. Venom is a terrifying monster and should be treated that way. And why would an alien symbiote have an English name? Also, way to undercut Venom by having him admit he is a “loser” on his planet. Films Watched: 1
  18. Man I hope this gets added to Google Play. I will buy it immediately.

    Started to watch Raw. Opening steel cage match. Why is the babyface acting like a coward and running away immediately, to have the heel stop him and beat him up? That's not how a face should act. Terrible booking decision. If I was watching this on mute and had no clue about characters or storylines I would assume the heel/face dynamic is exactly the opposite of what it is supposed to be.
  20. Dan and Mike, have you guys read "Supreme Power" and the follow-up "Squadron Supreme" from that universe? I have collected all of the trades and I love them. Just avoid "Ultimate Power." 🙂 Also in terms of brainwashing criminals, what about people who were convicted of a crime they did not commit? How do we justify irreversibly shifting someone's brain and then, oops, they didn't do it? There are a ton of real-world cases where people spent years in prison for crimes they did not commit, but their brains were not reformatted like a hard drive. Curious if that was addressed in the series.
  21. Whatever you celebrate, hope it's great.
  22. Thoughts: I loved the multiple nods to the Tranquil Tirades in this episode. Joke for three people, quarter star moment, etc. Vader's athleticism for a man his size is unbelievable. He really should have been WWF champion at some point, or at least had a run with the IC belt. Kellan losing his composure and being unable to stop laughing during Tom's promo was great. When someone is laughing like that, it is contagious and I could not stifle my own laugh. WWF was treading on some dangerous ground with Cornette's worked shoot promo. There could very easily have been a defamation lawsuit, as Hulk Hogan sued Vince Russo in real life for a less caustic shoot promo. (Then again, Hogan is a bit of a snowflake.)
  23. The SNES Classic is a lot of fun. I would make a couple changes in the list of games (such as including Donkey Kong Country 2) but overall it's a great little system. Note: Set your TV to "game mode" if you have one to eliminate input lag. Games that require quick and precise reaction time are unplayable with the lag.
