  1. Only if you play the part or REV ROSWELL or my Amanda 1. Why are you assuming I would know your age, or your personal experiences? Do you really believe everyone on this board knows your personal information? As an example, over the years, I've posted accounts of a few dark/gruesome events from my own past on this forum / as part of debates, but I am never going to assume everyone currently on this board remembered it, or cared to even browse it when originally posted. I--or anyone else would have no reason to assume that. So, when you think you're going to bark at anyone possibly inspired by
  2. You are full of it. Kwan was a Right Winger. I am not. Time for you to jump off of your extremist POV that paints anyone not spewing your wild nonsense as someone from the ideological Right. Talk about a black and white worldview. ..and about this BS: "Your disdain and apoplexy is palpable here: ... a laughable false narrative (it is neither)? Do you KNOW any women? Ask one how she felt about that ***** grabbing brag. To many, it truly is about the worst thing a man can say about a woman." Notice the point being dodged... in order to sell Trump's comment as the worst thing a woman can ex
  3. I take it you're implying i'm some version of the Kwan Yus, Alakinskys, et al., of yesteryear, and you would be..let's just say woefully incorrect, since I do not march to any party line, but I will call out sociopolitical zealots, hypocrisy and BS when its smeared against the wall as honesty or truth. That's a problem in areas where the mantra is translated as one-thought-for-all. I do not buy into that intellectually dishonest crap.But you definitely are Yulike.

  4. For me, they were the standouts of A Hard Day's Night.
  5. Sigh. It is clear you are exactly the kind of one-thought-for-all person I just mentioned to Spam--you are ever caught up in a storm of such ideological hatred that accurate historical comparisons are an alien language to you--deliberately so. Truth must be rejected (or something far darker at work) to paint a laughably false narrative spewed by some around here that one Donald Trump's comment is the worst thing ever uttered and should have been the equivalent of pulling the pins of the grenades on his own belt. You are free to be as hostile as you choose, but addressing the specific quest

  7. More bull. Not a surprise when you deliberately ignore how relevant historical comparisons answers the question. Ahh, but that is crazy talk when you live n that aforementioned echo chamber where being ignorant of history and its effect is a substitute for facts. Some remind me of Charlamagne Tha God telling Biden, "I really wish Joe Biden would shut the eff up forever.." after the Democratic nominee claimed Trump was the "first racist president." Anyone knowing even one moment of American history knows that is absolute BS and an astoundingly offensive statement (yeah, he should look a part of
  8. Even some Beatles fans think the early work is simple, or too much a "prisoner" of their influences, as opposed to the latter half where their songwriting strengths / individuality flowered.
  9. Sorry, not buying that. Relevant historical comparisons is only a deflection to those who live in an echo chamber of only-one-side-committed-some-wrongdoing. Thankfully, the real world does not live in said echo chamber, so for anyone wondering why Trump's Access Hollywood recording did not hurt his chances, look to a serious charge of sexual assault not preventing a second Clinton term. All relevant about what voters are willing to ignore.
  10. 1. Entirely subjective, and on that note, I found the Rolling Stones final two albums of the 60s (Beggars' Banquet and Let it Bleed)leaving them in generally better creative shape than the Beatles last two efforts. 3. The Beatles were far from the first rock band to step into the waters of experimentation. As early as 1964, The genesis of The Who creating the rock opera had its roots in 1965 with the early ideas that would become "A Quick One, While He's Away" in '66. We all know about groups like The Animals, The Yardbirds and The Moody Blues going off in very experimental (and creatively c
  11. For the same reason voters ignored something as incredibly serious like Paula Jones' sexual harassment allegations against Bill Clinton revealed during his first term, yet voters skipped right over that to give him a second term. Deflection 101. Bull. The question was "I still don't get how "grab em by the *****" didn't end it all". A relevant example of negative sexual matters not hurting a candidate was posted. If some refuse to see how the examples point to voters not caring about negative sexual matters, then that is a case of some wanting to paint Trump as Satan who should have been h
  12. 1. ANH / ESB - Tie. ANH was still part of the early, "raw" and "real" GL, when his vision and messaging of his key themes were so sharp (continuing from what he established in THX-1138 and American Graffiti), while ESB was GL polish and myth making at its best. 2. ROTJ - The Luke arc alone leave the rest of the SW films looking like a dried-up corpse. 3. TPM. Despite the film wasting so much time on podracing and the embarrassing Jar-Jar, its a film that had the kind of film pacing that has not been in vogue since the early 80s. While the overall package was by no means perfect (and Jinn w

  14. It will not happen with Biden. You know Biden--he's the guy with a decades long history of targeting black people as an elected official, right up to his recent "you ain't black" crap (even in that statement, he stereotypes black people with an assumption he's "speaking their language" with slang), and rejection of reparations for ADOS (American Descendants of Slaves) unless he can stitch every other group in the known galaxy to a uniquely black American issue / situation. Yeah, he's going to bring America together like no other....
  15. Rational post. You have pointed out--with stinging accuracy--why this latest round of unrest is not moving anything forward, and likely never will. 1./3. The problem with present day "leadership" (of any group) is that it starts from the position of accusation to outright hatred (Al Sharpton, for one example), and that is not going to inspire anyone walking in the middle to support the confused cause. Instead,those in the middle might end up standing in opposition to it because no normal person will support anyone accusing them--with blanket charges of generational racism, yet they're suppos
  16. I am curious to see what it turns out to be. But I think it was rushed more because the suits wanted it a certain way, and the spreadsheets and focus groups said Joss Whedon was the guy to do it. And really, he should have been able to. When it comes to film, there is little difference between DC and Marvel characters. It really depends on who's put in charge of making the film. If Kevin Feige was hired to do the Justice League instead of/in addition to the Marvel verse, I think it would be just as popular. Feige had done I think like 10+ non-MCU Marvel films, before jumping into the MC
  17. I stopped caring while the PT was in theaters, and by care I mean investing any creative/intellectual interest in the films as something to absorb, revisit and analyze on any level for enjoyment. The Kennedy Era has poisoned the franchise well, to the point that its now as bad off as the Star Trek franchise after one "Berman-verse" show after another left it as a pile of creatively-challenged rubble, especially the horrid Voyager and Enterprise. The JJ films, Discovery and Picard only served to walk by that pile, and set it on fire, much like the Star Wars sequels have to done to its own franc
  18. Interested in seeing the film Snyder wanted to make, as opposed to the rushed crap that was "finished" by someone who had no clue about making a film with DC characters.
  19. and what would YOU do What would you do?
  20. Biden's best features? Try his decades of aggressively working against black people, from his statements on how "they" might threaten his family in some phantom criminal encounter, to his "articulate" / "clean" comment about Obama, the 1994 crime bill, his fighting against desegregation in schools--all as an elected official. That's how he served the public. As civil rights attorney Leo Terrell recently observed, "Joe Biden has not earned the black vote. He has insulted the black vote." So, for all of those desperate while liberals out there who are all behind Biden, you're letting black Ameri
  21. Obviously it does not have a thing to do with Floyd--any honest, rational mind knows this, but the would-be "revolutionaries" (and their romanticizing media boosters with lips firmly panted on anarchist asses) will use Floyd's name and his family's loss to push their moronic agenda, knowing they can count on certain politicians to gag and cuff themselves rather than calling this crap out for what it is.
  22. Man, I'm in the position of seeing this crap from one end of the country to the other, and it is a complete and utter myth that police are "forcing" weapons into the hands of the innumerable violent people destroying one city after another. What is not myth is what true black activists had warned the world long ago: white-led anarchist / terrorist groups (e.g., Antifa and their lackeys who fantasize that they are clones of Eldridge Cleaver) have hijacked the initial reaction to black protests of the recent past right up to the reaction to Floyd's death, traveling to towns & cities which wo
  23. Your nephew made a wise move. Some time ago, I built a home gym because I was disgusted at the habits of a good number of people at the gym where I had a membership (pulling, scratching, wiping, sneezing and never covering their faces, and next to never using the hand sanitizer dispensers). I did not care to complain to management, because in they would do the expected: promise that the equipment is thoroughly cleaned (it was not) and beg me to keep renewing the membership. Screw that. Too many people have no home training whatsoever and are just plain nasty when it comes to basic hygiene. It
