    The Music Thread

    The Poppy thing started as a really interesting and sorta creepy series of videos about the "character" and then it just turned out that it was all marketing for her music and it instantly became a lot less cool.
  2. John Wick: A well-paced revenge tale that hits all of the simplest, but most effective beats, building to its climax as the title character topples increasingly larger dominoes in his way. Enjoyed. John Wick 2: Mystery is boring - let's EXPLAIN things. It feels like that's most of what this movie is, explaining things, then explaining them again, then showing you the thing it just explained in case you somehow missed it because we need a franchise, goddammit. Ruby Rose has nothing to do but tries her best. Ups the gun fetishism while making the fights feel like more of the same. You a
  3. I've been watching a lot of movies as a way to keep my brain busy and stay away from distracting/unhealthy stuff, so I have a lot from the past week or so. The Imposter - A documentary detailing the story of Frédéric Bourdin, a French con-man that was somehow able to convince a Texas family that he was their missing son. It's unique in the way it allows Bourdin himself to narrate a lot of the story, which offers an interesting perspective but also trusts a lot of the details to a notorious liar. It certainly tries to paint him in an oddly sympathetic light at times, but as the case unfo
  4. I tried to apply this a lot when I did my TEW booking videos, but NXT has always been really good at putting forth the idea that everyone is good at something and that everyone on the card has a purpose. The weekly show is basic almost to a fault, but it makes the Takeovers that much better since they use simple, logical booking. I'd almost recommend going back to around the Nakamura era and starting from there, since you'll see the best of a lot of guys that are being wasted on the main roster now, and you'll also get context for all of the current Ciampa/Gargano stuff. NXT and the Mae
  5. I'll be sure to let me from seven years ago know.
  6. Up to about a quarter of the goal after a few days. I'm very likely not going to reach it, but the amount donated so far will still be a tremendous help after I move, so thank you to everyone that's donated and shared.
  7. So.. this is incredibly weird for me and I'm ashamed I'm even doing this, but, here we go. I'm moving back to Baltimore and I've started a GoFundMe to ask for help. The details of the situation are in the link. As for how this affects my online stuff - I don't know yet. It may continue with slight delay, it may end entirely. If it does, I'll close the Patreon and get people refunds if they ask for them. I honestly won't know the whole situation until I've moved.
  8. We've basically reached a point where there's dog barking every 20 minutes or so in the house so that's fun.
  9. I'm in. Just a matter of getting the scheduling figured out.
  10. Cage is an Impact guy too, yeah. At least for the next six months until they change owners and their entire roster again.
  11. I got a Bob Ross Chia Pet.
  12. I won't argue the Brit thing because, ever since Brexit, I have been a Canadian. Des said it was cool.
  13. We've pretty much settled on beat-by-beat for the big stuff (Transformers, Twilight) and shorter episodes for the other stuff.
  14. That's the goal, yeah. I'd have to stop doing my own stuff because all of that focus would go elsewhere. I don't think they'd mandate that I stop doing it but there'd be no point since no one visits it anyway.
  15. To clarify, I'm not going to stick a knife in the thing tomorrow. There were times in the past that I wanted to stop doing the show completely for much more serious reasons. I actually quit like, three times before but I came back so quickly no one noticed. Other times when I wanted to stop and just kept going because I had this dumb perception that it was the only thing James and I consistently got to do together and that he'd have no reason to be friends with me anymore if we stopped. As I get older, it's become apparent to me just how much of our lives we've devoted to this thing.
  16. I'd estimate we probably have two more episodes getting done before the end of the year. To be completely honest, no idea what next year holds. My life, in particular, is set to go through a lot of changes if things pan out the way I'd like them too, which would ultimately mean that at some point we stop doing the show.
  17. I completely forgot I made that commercial.
  18. Hey, so I don't ask this, but I've run into a couple folks upset that I'm playing a gay dating sim on my channel and they're dislike bombing it already. It's not a ton, but it's enough that it'll hurt my views pretty much from the start. So if you can do me and favor and up-thumb this to counter-act that a bit, I'd appreciate it. Don't even have to watch the video.
  19. If you do it, I do it. If we die, we die in battle.... ... together.
  20. It's supposed to be a spinal compression, just like the normal atomic drop, so the belief is that they're hitting their tailbone. It really depends on who is selling it, but most of the time it just looks bad. There's a reason you never see that move anymore.
  21. http://oswreview.com/media/oswreview59/ Start at about 1:18:40 for a detailed breakdown of how awful of a babyface Hogan is.
  22. I got the audio book of the expanded version for free, but I can't really do audio books, so I'll be looking to get another hardcover.
