  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. How can you not love Rusev.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. I'm about six weeks behind or so, but these Lucha Underground hype videos for Rey/Mundo are pure awesome.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. Drive Angry - I wanted stupid and mindless. And I did. Yep.
  14. "Leif was unfortunately played by a goat". Well played.
  15. Midnight Sun - A semi-fictionalized story of an airship crash near the North Pole in the late 1920s. While I liked it, this could have been so much more. Felt a little like short vignettes more than a complete story. Read that it was supposed to be 6 issues and got cut to 3. It really shows. Loki: Agent of Asgard - I gave this every chance I could. I really did. I pushed thru the first trade. I tried crawling my way thru the second, but I said fuck it and stopped half way. I think I read probably 7 issues and I have no idea what is going on. There is new Young Good Loki, but also Old Evil Loki. But the Old is New and the Good is Evil but Good. And then I think another Loki shows up? Maybe. Look, I know things came before, but this in no way helps me out. Major things are happening surrounding this and I have no idea what those are. And then I think a couple events happened. I think. I picked these up at the library because all three trades were right there. Same as I did with Hawkeye. I was able to follow those with a flowchart, google and a 30 minute YouTube video.
  16. Have you read the revised and expanded edition? Been debating getting the audiobook.
  17. Somewhat not so randomly, I've been (very) slowly watching the G1 from 2015. Only 3 days in, so it will take a while. Watching shows without commentary so just odd. But that is not the main takeaway so far. No that would be that I hate the High Fly Flow. Hatred. Love a good Frog Splash, HATE the High Fly Flow.
  18. I really loved Chuck when I first marathoned the show. And while I still enjoy it, rewatching it a few (okay, more than a few) times has revealed a flawed, but as stated, fun show. You can really see that production was not really the smoothest. It really is one of those 'once seen cannot be unseen' things, but the editing is horrible. And the network ordering additional episodes for seasons 3 and 4 is really noticeable. Both seasons end with a big moment and then keep on going with no real direction. The guest stars are a lot of fun. Timothy Dalton is just so much fun. And John Larroquette is a great for a laugh. As for the main cast, I agree with the Buy More staff being kinda pointless after a while. Chuck 'works' at the Buy More as a cover, but midway thru season 3, Sarah stops having a job. But Sarah stops doing a lot of things. Like being a badass. Can't have that for some reason. Interested in hearing your thoughts on the finale (or really the last 3-4 episode arch). It has never sat well with me. Seemed like a drastic shift in tone for what was a very light, fun show.

    The Music Thread

    Just realized that every time I buy new headphones (which happens way too often), the first thing I listen to is God Hates Us All by Slayer.
  20. I believe Crow Sting was a Scott Hall idea.
  21. Having just finished watching the rematch I'll say the original is better than the sequel. Now, I watching both know the result (and I HATE knowing) but I felt it hurt the rematch more. Still great fun. That Okada guy is having himself a year. Also, Cyrus doing his 92 Royal Rumble Bobby Heenan impersonation got old real fast.
  22. This week on Lois & Clark: Our heroes find themselves in quite a pickle when an evil businessman learns to harness the powers of photoshop. I am so happy my laptop decided to play DVDs again. I've missed this.
  23. So that didn't go as bad as it could have. So, I got that going for me. Bad news is the bills have already started to arrive and it is an absolute mess. Not having insurance has turned this very 'interesting'.
  24. So, I'm off to have a bit of surgery in a couple of hours. Nothing life threatening or the like, but something that does need to be done. Yeah, not exactly the best of times. I've been dealing with things since NYE, so a bit of time has passed. Yet, it didn't really hit me until I woke up this morning. Yeah, not happy about this. Not at all.
