    What Have You Watched Recently?

    Love this movie, I'm a big Cary Grant fan. I've seen it half a dozen times, at least. I've finally started watching Supernatural at the behest of both of my daughters. I'm most of the way through Season 2. It's essentially The X-Files without the FBI. In fact they scoff at the idea of aliens, which I thought was a strange hubris since they deal with all manner of weirdo stuff. The episodes are a bit uneven but the main characters are charming enough that I've not bailed on it yet.

    I'm old

    I've worn them for about five years now, since I was 50. I was never bothered by them. I was so happy to be able to hear normally again that I didn't care what it took. I'm much more bothered by my bald head, and I've had to live with that since I was about 30.

    Order of the Stick

    "I mean, of course I'm right, duh, still a god." A subtle call-back to Monty Python and the Holy Grail? GOD: Right! Arthur, King of the Britons, your Knights of the Round Table shall have a task to make them an example in these dark times. ARTHUR: Good idea, O Lord! GOD: 'Course it's a good idea!

    "I don't need alcohol to make it through the day.... (shakily takes sip of water) Oh that is awful, oh my God, 70% of the Earth is made of of that s***? How do the fish do it?" "That ball can't be buried in a Jewish cemetery because it was tattooed!"

    Name for superhero w/ fog powers

    That's one we tossed around! This player has gone through several names for his character, including Killer Fog (he started as a villain), and The Green Gasser...

    "I'm gonna count to one."
  9. I'll wait for an "I told you so" until they actually reinstate him. 😉
  10. Call the full strike zone? I say automate home plate. It's time to ditch the subjective zone. I don't mind video challenges, especially considering the number of calls that are overturned. The DH...meh. I've always been an NL guy but recently I'm coming around to adding it to the NL. I agree, eliminate interleague play. Contract a couple of teams if that unbalances the schedule. I disagree about tipping into the catcher's mitt being an out. It should remain a foul ball. I too would like to see the automatic walk eliminated, but I don't consider it that big a deal. It does save a bit of time, but not enough to be significant. I agree, go back to 154 games. This also might require contraction. Ask Reggie Jackson and Billy Martin about the value of clubhouse chemistry. I like the idea of adding Caribbean and Asian leagues to MLB, but I'd vote for actually adding some of those teams to MLB. They're already defacto MLB farm systems, to a degree. Free agency is fine the way it is. I agree, don't mess with the ball. But if you do, freaking admit it. Not sure where I land on defensive indifference, but considering the dearth of stolen bases in the last few decades I'm not sure it makes any difference to anything.
  11. I gotta brag on my hometown Indianapolis Indians: last night against the Lehigh Valley IronPigs, not one but TWO Indians players hit for the cycle! https://www.milb.com/indianapolis/news/indians-ride-bi-cycle-to-rout-over-ironpigs/c-289349626 "The bi-cycle by Newman and Stallings marked the second time in baseball history where teammates have hit for the cycle in the same game. Oddly enough, High-A San Jose accomplished the feat in April of this season."
  12. I think the outpouring of support from pretty much everybody will have an affect on Disney's knee-jerk decision. Just one example of such a reversal is Chris Hardwick's reinstatement by AMC. But of course, I'm not an industry insider...
  13. I agree with that last bit. I'm all for second chances, but that's it.
  14. Oh let's not pretend that objectionable words are comparable to physical assault, even in this hyper-sensitive age. I'd bet money Gunn will be re-hired. I'd bet that same money Weinstein will never be, because what he did actually harmed people. What Gunn said harmed exactly no one.

    Aphorisms for a Superhero Universe

    If you leave a dimensional portal laying around something will come through it that wants to kill you. Even if it looks just like you.
