I hate that – even if I needed to – I couldn’t take some of these new medications being advertised because of my TB 🙁
This whole thing’s just really fcken annoying, and it’s taking the FUN out of a GAME. That’s the part everyone can agree on that likes football, unless you’re a rabid Pats-hater.
The “they would’ve won anyway” argument misses the point.
The “everyone’s doing it” argument misses the point.
If it’s proven they cheated, punish them like you would any other team and move on.
After listening to some scientists talk about the issue, it seems that there is a possibility it was a natural occurence due to weather conditions.
It’s long and way too fcken complicated, but I don’t know whether they cheated or not at this point. Chalk my previous post up to not conceiving all the possibilities, not being very good at science, and not believing Bill Belichick is a paragon of virtue.
Oh, and in any case…Go Pats!
-Puppy >.< Yip!
I’m just glad it’s over.
Going over and removing the ones too marginal to be included. Doesn’t leave many.
Tom Savini directs. So he gets to take a nice little idea about Werewolf/Human growing pains/territorial pissings and inject product placement and the obligatory NotLD moon shot.
It’s not as interesting as Pandora’s Box or the “Drink Me” bottle from ‘Dragon’s Lair’, but it’s a decent, solid episode.
From a man who’s spent almost his entire LIFE involved in football and who prides himself on his vast knowledge of the game, the following statement – to me – strikes me about as legitimate as A-Rod claiming he was just making a normal running motion or Sal Alosi claiming he was just stretching that knee out:
“I would say I’ve learned a lot more about this process in the last three days than I knew or have talked about it in the last 40 years that I’ve coached in this league,” Belichick said. “I had no knowledge of the various steps involved in the game balls and process that went through.”
I mean, COME ON. I’m a Pats fan, but it’s getting pretty FCKEN annoying to have to deal with this sh1t from a coach who DOESN’T EVEN NEED TO RESORT TO IT. Allegedly. I’m not saying anything, but it seems pretty fcken 6.9 to me.
I think the following video clip should be played for BB every time he enters a football stadium, on the big screen (SATIRE…SATIRE…SATIRE):
10/16/16: FAIR USE: CRITICISM – A good clip from a good movie. And it fits, yet. Signature removed, oh no. (housekeeping)
But then I read this, and it seemed to pump me up a little bit.
This series can’t do scary, really, but occasionally they do ok with camp.
Creepy at the end. Though I fail to see the “message”…don’t eat food? Slightly overweight women MUST diet?
Root’n Toot’n! He WAS a midget!
Dark mild humor. Ehhhhh.
Now I have no idea who Nancy Grace is – nor do I care – or what is actually SAID in the Youtube video where supposedly she’s talking to some guy about pot…but I must say this:
She DEFINITELY, from the teaser pic of the video, has an evil-snow-queen, cold and piercing, Yes-Mistress-May-I-Have-Another vibe going for her.
-Puppy >.< Yip!
Don’t think anyone really needs a summary. But I was watching it again (mostly to review it), so here’s a little blurb:
A man is transformed into a GENTLEMAN! Needless to say, it disgraces him for life…he can’t even look his CHILDREN in the face!
It’s held up pretty well. Interesting Three Stooges premise – though not as good as the Stooges episode – and decent writing and acting.
The only problem is that the vast majority of the last quarter is stupid, boring, and/or cliche. The Stooges sometimes had similar issues.
7/14/18: The Great Grade Update. Grade: C+
Nice animated intro: I’ll take his rejects.
If you’re expecting a movie about two sisters holding a man captive, that’s just a setup…most of the movie is the aftermath.
And while the setup is convincing and freaky, the aftermath is NOT “horror”…it’s dark drama, and not nearly as convincing.
And THEN it turns again, into a mediocre thriller.
And WHAT a brave and smart leading man! Everyone knows the best way to overcome trauma is to drag your supportive, loving wife into it while also neglecting her and her feelings!
Movie one of three was a fairly interesting short.
Review edit, no grade change.
A WHOLE LOT of atmospheric staring and whatnot.
Creepy idea about an island of psycho kids, acted out and written very badly.
And the ending scenes were obviously just footage from ‘Njorl’s Saga’.
For all the good points, I’m sure you’ll have no trouble finding info.
For further research, I suggest:
‘Brave New World’
Strikes me sort of like a British version of ‘The Burbs’…AT FIRST.
Elfie and friend are not-very-good-or-necessary “investigators” until a somewhat odd new family moves into town.
Basically it’s a “dark”-ish comedy in the lightest possible sense…up to a point.
Unfortunately, after a while of fairly decent buildup along those lines it finishes as a generic horror flick with a rather weak ending.
Disappointing, really…I was hoping for better.
To those perfectionists (not me. well, sometimes.) and Britons (sp?, Alba Gu Brath!) who criticize my usage of the US name and release date, this quote from Cliff in the spirit of fun:
“So if you Brits ever find yourselves in trouble against, uh, another major military power like Argentina, don’t worry about a thing. We Yanks will be there to bail you out just like we worked on the last two big ones, eh?”

I think the following would make a great “default location” for posts:
“Wherever bicycles are broken or menaced by International Communism.”
One of the stated “aims” of the British Humanist Association:
“The promotion of understanding between people holding religious and non-religious beliefs so as to advance harmonious cooperation in society.”
BHA Vice-President Richard Dawkins on theists:
“Mock them. Ridicule them in public.”
-Puppy >.< Yip!
I watched this to get over ‘Omnivores’…and to have a “January 2015” archive.
It was a light-hearted welcome to mock some of the really cheezy and Immortal-Arnold moments.
Basically this is just a mediocre if occasionally fun and somewhat visually impressive sci/fi-action cr@p vehicle for Schwarzenegger.
For a GOOD Philip K. Dick adaptation, try ‘Minority Report’.
