    The "Good news, everyone!" thread

    We have an "I need to vent" thread. It's high time we had an opposing thread to tell about cool shit and general good stuff happening in our lives. Erin called me last night and told me she will be visiting me next month on Spring Break. Originally, we weren't going to be able to see each other until July, but her grandmother is awesome and gave her her airline miles. So, we get to hang out together for the first time in the ATL in a few weeks. I am a very happy camper. :happy:

    Avengers: Infinity War

    What an accomplishment. Not just a great movie--an accomplishment. I'll post more thoughts later, but I could see the blood, sweat, tears and heart that went into this culmination ten years of films. Just terrific.

    Deadpool 2

    Can. Not. Wait.

    Avengers: Infinity War

    Captain America fending off Thanos' grasp gives me an unnecessary level of hope that we get the goddamned amazing dialogue between them from the original Infinity Gauntlet story.

    Comedians

    George Carlin, of course. Eddie Izzard is another personal favorite.

    Thor: Ragnarok

    Finally watched it today. It was fantastic fun, but it needed like half a dozen fewer ill-advised comedic moments. I'd still watch it anytime, but the rampant, unnecessary comedy was so not needed.

    Weeklong events on Earth-2.net: The Show

    I'm obviously down for this. I'm thinking I'll do a segment on Shakespeare's lesser known works; and since I am a word guy, maybe another segment on his influence on the English language.

    Episode 999

    I'm an hour forty-five into this, and that kazoo cover...I needed that laughter.
  10. Thank you, sir. It is appreciated.

    NFL

    Oh, hai, yet another postseason exit for an Atlanta sports team.

    And the episode 1000 topic is...

    I might be able to do a quick segment on the Metallica S&M album.

    JLA movie news

    I think Flash looks the worst of all of them.

    The "I need to vent" thread

    One of the main reasons our educational system is a joke in this country. I watch videos on Facebook of how students in, say, Japan attend school and I just marvel at how many light years away we are from even approaching that level of quality.

    Deadpool 2

    Hell yeah.

    Saw VIII

    I decided IF I see it, it'll have to be for free and I'll cover it solo. I can't subject anyone else to this bullshit.

    The Legend of Korra

    I've finally watched the first three seasons and I'm beyond impressed. I think I might actually like Korra more than Avatar: TLA, which is saying a HELL of a lot. I can sum up Season 3 in one phrase: "Suyin wins. FATALITY."

    Transformers 5 and Beyond

    This thing is getting DESTROYED by critics. And even the "positive" reviews I've seen have largely been full of underhanded "complements" to the insanity and incomprehensible plot. God, this makes me so happy. I almost WANT to see this now because it seems a majority of people are finally seeing how abhorrent this fucking series is.

    Saw VIII

    Oh, god, so he's Hitler in the 21st century. Actually...that kind of fits...

    RIP Chris Cornell

    I'm devastated by this one. Even moreso because I had the chance to see Soundgarden two weeks ago and I didn't go. I'll regret that until the day I die. RIP to maybe my favorite songwriter and vocalist ever.

    The Tranquil Tirades Wiki

    Damien and I are working on something that will keep everyone occupied for a while until the next Tirades comes out. We've been working on it for well over a week and it's just about at 50% completion. More updates to come.

    Episode 05.06: Year Zero

    Good to have the show back. The RuPaul Walker Texas Rangers was, indeed, a team trivia name one night.

    Thor: Ragnarok

    So, how soon can I buy my ticket?
