    It is Rumble season and I am surprised that almost none of the Mania card is known. Lesnar vs. Reigns is the only match. Everything else seems fluid. Don't know if that shows a lack of long term planning or things being kept secret for once.

    I know the rule that no one cares about your fantasy team except you. And it is completely true. However, I just won my long time league over my arch-rival. On the literal last play of our season. Which was a fumble recovery returned for a TD by the Eagles as time expired on MNF. The Eagles are his team. The ensuing trash-talk and general mockery from the entire league the past 48 hours has been absolutely glorious. I have been kinda down on fantasy lately, but this has been the most fun.

    Every Film You've Watched in 2017

    The Last Dragon - Been sitting on my coffee table since I saw Taimak on UpUpDownDown. Fun. Just fun. Cry-Baby - Soundtrack came up on random on my drive home, so why not? "Electricity killed my parents!" may be my favorite movie line and I don't really know why it makes me laugh so hard. But it does. Every time.

    Atomic Blonde - Looks awesome and I love the soundtrack. Has one really great fight scene and not much else. Plot is nothing new, which I don't really care about, but I was just bored. And if I never see another spy film where the last ten minutes just devolves into a series of 'shocking turns' it will be too soon.

    The Music Thread

    Not sure if I love them yet. I only found them an hour ago. But this is so going to be in my head all day tomorrow. That is a certainty.

    And the episode 1000 topic is...

    The crossover/team-up that defined my childhood: Power Rangers (in Space) meet the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (the next Mutation).

    JLA movie news

    Well, it is a movie. But at some point a thought popped into my head. Marvel did this already. Like this felt like a mid-to-low tier Marvel movie. But I'd rather have this than the borefest that was BvS. And the CGI is horrible.

    Thor: Ragnarok

    I liked this, but I think they went a little to far with the haha. And no even about the serious vs. jokey thing. Kinda felt like they were afraid for Thor to just be a badass. Oh, and

    I'm gonna double down on my too many characters comment. Yeah, they focus on the Core 4, but everyone else is barely there.

    I don't know. The season has felt flat. And watching the third episode, it kinda struck me as to why. There are So. Many. Characters. And it seems like they are adding more people like Moose & Reggie. And Daddy Lodge. And in response:

    Well, finally caught up with TLC. And well, that main event was so boring. And then... Does this mean Braun cames back as Kevin Nash?

    First time you felt old

    Someone asked me if I still had my sub license. I don't, but something hit me. There are now high school students that were not born the last time I got a haircut.

    So, due to things and Roman Reigns not being able to work, Kurt Angle is going to make his WWE in-ring return on Sunday. In a TLC match. I'm scared. Angle is insane. I hope he doesn't do anything overly risky.

    Random movie and tv thoughts

    So I'm watching Power Rangers Time Force. I get to episode 6, in which a school bus full of kids is hijacked and they are held for ransom. Immediately, I think of my favorite episode of Walker, Texas Ranger (Cyclone) which just so happens to have the same plot. Naturally, I find it on dailymotion and watch it with way too much glee. (Off topic: Walker digs out the school bus, which had been buried by heavy machinery, with his bare hands. Oh, and a tornado is ten feet away. Too much glee.) Didn't hit me until the end. The 'Villain of the Week' on that specific episode of Walker is *check IMDB* Edward Albert, a main cast member of Power Rangers Time Force. I love weird coincidences.

    Random wrestling thoughts

    So the Mae Young classic is over. And now I can state fully that I disliked pretty much everything about it, except for the actual wrestling. The wrestling was fine to very good. The actual tournament was well done with enough surprise winners to keep things interesting. I don't like the fact a lot of focus was put on a famous person sitting in the front row, but I get it and it is what it is. But I did not like how they presented the series at all. The 'binge' watch rollout was a horrible idea. Going the CWC route of one episode a week after NXT worked so much better. I was given time to digest, think, anticipate and want more. This did not. When the second set came out, less than 24 hours later, their own WWE youtube page uploaded interviews with winners. In my head, that implies that they expected me to watch on Monday. And now I have spoilers by just opening an app. And having the finals come off as some thrown together afterthought, sandwiched in between two other shows. Give it more of an event feel, instead of showing the four in the crowd, have the other competitors have a tag match. Showcase some of this new talent you have coming in. But the in ring was good. Hopefully this breathes some life into the very stale women's divisions on all three shows.

    iTunes trouble?

    Anybody else having an issue with the podcasts stopping in the middle of downloading? I just kinda assumed it was a me issue. However, for the past month or so, all E2 podcasts have stopped and have taken 2-3 download restarts to finish. All of my other podcasts download fine.

    The leisurely comic discussion thread

    Re-purchased a trade for the sole reason that it was the wrong edition and the spine did not match the rest of the volumes. Granted, I originally bought the entire run of trades for a buck a piece and the replacement was three bucks. But it still annoys me that it annoyed me. But, now I can look at the book shelf and not have that OCD part activate.

    I'm about six weeks behind or so, but these Lucha Underground hype videos for Rey/Mundo are pure awesome.

    Strange Tales II (Marvel Knights) - Anthology series. I think these were supposed to be funny. Maybe. They are not. Just bad. Golly! - Carnival folk are on a mission from God. Or something. Not good.

    YouTube thought it was really important that I watch Nerco Butcher vs. Samoa Joe right now. 12 years later (how is that possible) and it is still insane.

    Live action Tick series might be returning

    I'm not sure. I think Tick works well in small doses. It can get annoying rather quickly. Part of the reason I liked the Patrick Warburton series as much as I do is because it was so short-lived. That, and Batmanuel. Either way, I'm gonna give it a shot.

    Pinocchio, Vampire Slayer - Surprisingly enjoyable. Shadoweyes - Decent story in here somewhere, but the pacing is horrendous. Feels like I'm only reading the even number issues, and those randomly have five pages missing. Explorer: The Mystery Boxes - Anthology collection about boxes. As always, hit or miss, but with more hits.

    Drive Angry - I wanted stupid and mindless. And I did. Yep.
