I would watch.

You even use the original cast - they're all way past their prime, so might work for peanuts.

Re: It's not the size of the screen...

If you don't mind subtitles (or you understand Spanish), and enjoy mystery-horror stuff, then 30 Coins might be worth a look, on HBO Max. It's a little uneven in spots, but I'm enjoying it a lot. And it has an actress that has haunted me since I first saw her 20 years ago in Dagon - Macarena Gomez.

Re: Post Urbanism?

Personally, I'm Team Highway. If I didn't have a couple of minions that need to be physically in the lab to do their jobs, I'd be wfh a lot more.

As it is, I'm angling for a position (lateral move with broader responsibilities and better advancement opportunities) that will allow me that freedom.

Oh, I'm happy to hear that finally dropped. I'd heard about it a while ago. I was a fan of the PBS show and even read a few of his books afterward becasue of it.

Objectively, Limbaugh was the prototype for Trump. Yes, there were prototypes for Limbaugh, too, but these two profited enormously by being in the right place at the right time as they rode the waves of media and mass communications change. Limbaugh was, first and foremost, a clown in the pejorativ...

I must've watched that a dozen time yesterday. So great.

A secondary lol is that there's the warning in the top left square, and the judge posted his own take on the vid, in clear violation.

There's a fair number of 'bushcraft' channels on the you tube. Joe Robinet and Matthew Posa are a couple guys I'll watch on occasion. I think Robinet even did an early season of Alone.

Ok, finished up S5 of The Expanse this weekend. No spoilers - but what a weird/dumb way to kill off a character. Even my wife was like, wtf.

Re: Whither the GOP? (post-Trump edition)

Frankly, I'm glad that the vast majority seem to believe in a god / afterlife / morality-reckoning system, becasue the opposite of that is terrifying.

If the vast majority actually took to heart that the universe is utterly careless about our existence, we'd be in the shit.

I've tried watching a few of the Food Wishes vids before, and yeah, that guy's sing-song voice where every other sentence sounds like a question is too fucking annoying.

The only food channel I watch nowadays is Kenji Lopez-Alt's.

In the '70s, I sort of remember it being national news that someone had made it to their 100th birthday. Now, you have a list of 10 people every day, at the end of the Today show, past 100, and that is probably only a fraction of the people even writing in to Today, not to mention everyone who DGAF ...

I've seem them state that Trump 'set a precedent' with Mattis, so of course Austin should be waivered.
