And speaking of floors, how about those , huh?
Dylan Roof left behind a manifesto. I'm reading it now, it's the same generic racist bullshit you can find anywhere on the net.
The apartment is (mostly) clean and (mostly) ready for a visit from my parents in the morning, and I now have to go to work. At least it's a miserably dreary day outside, so I'm not wasting a gorgeous summer day on the seventh floor.
Alright guys, the shoot interview poll ended in a tie between Kevin Steen and CM Punk. First three votes count so reply to this now.
Did you expect anything more? He looked like he was borderline illiterate.
Steen. Seen Punk talk enough.
Alright, Steen won the shoot interview poll
It's amazing he managed to figure out how to copy and paste into a Word document. It probably wasn't even Word. It was probably a fucking notepad file.
I hate those Insert Sports Team In Last Place jerks!
I think it funny how he opens it by saying he wasn't raised racist or grew up in a racist environment, but in the next sentence says as a kid, he thought blacks were the real racists.
[My Local Sports Team] wiped up the [Playing Surface] with them.
Had no idea the Steen shoot was four hours long. Gonna listen to this for a bit.
You misspelled Rush Limbaugh again.
"But I poop from there!""Not right now you don't"
I'm taking a break from pulling up carpet. Is there a trick to getting the staples out of the floor?
HOLY SHIT THEY MADE A LAKE PLACID VS ANACONDA MOVIE. THIS IS NOT A DRILL, THIS IS REAL AND IT EXISTS.
that haircut. Dude, that haircut. Out of this whole ordeal, the only thing I remain fixated on is that damn haircut
Crowbar... wait, do you mean the tack strip? Or actual staples?
[Your Local Sports Team] hacked up the [Surface Tablet] with them. Or something
Both now that you bring it up
Best way to get the tack strip up is with a crowbar. Just take the flat end and slam it into the tack strip and it should come right up. Staples... no clue.
Ok, thanks for the help
This comment needs Vince McMahon yelling that it's a com-PLETE disastah.
Solid tack strip advice already given. The only success I've had with carpet staples is using needle nose pliers.
Well, I think I know the double header with Jurassic World now tonight...
Ok, I'll give that a shot.
The Phillies. It's always the Phillies.
Good luck and Godspeed
I threw this in the Friday thread, but I'm throwing it in here too: Gunner done with TNA. No big loss.And Murphy's real name was Michael Cole... ah wrestling...
Best hint: Have someone else do it for ya!
I woke up this morning to find out that Turner Classic Movies has been added to the Sling base package.Also, some shit show channel called Polaris. Something to do with gaming, or something.
I can't afford it. I've outsourced out so much stuff trying to get the house up to snuff that I'm forced back into manual labor.
You know there is a higher power who loves us when he/she/it supplies us with SyFy and producers with a vision.
Up here in Alberta a few beers usually gets my buds over to help.
At work for the next five and a half hours. As nice as it was to have Friday off, it's torture working nine to six on a Saturday.
I've been watching trolls on FB label every attempt to show disparities in how he's treated versus criminals of other races "racist." A friend of mine, a lawyer who happens to be a black Republican, said that he hoped that a jury of Paula Deen Dixiecrats didn't screw this up, and an idiot called him a racist.I had to clarify the difference between racism and prejudice: prejudice is a belief, while racism is action upon that belief. Racism carries consequences, and generally speaking, we lack the social agency for us to impose consequences upon others.
Now I can't stop staring at it.. dammit.
Wow did I read this wrong first time through. I thought you said TCM added Sling Blade to the package. I need a coffee."I reckon..."
“Eight of his church members who might be alive if he had expressly allowed members to carry handguns in church are dead” ........“Innocent people died because of his position on a political issue.”Aaaand the blame game's begun.
Paula Deen scares me.
Some people really are tone deaf assholes, aren't they?
And that speaker is a complete asshat, and should be ignored as such. Sadly, between the media and the tards who still think it's actually "journalism", that won't happen.
The garbageman can
She's about as harmful as a sheet of paper. And maybe 2% as useful.
Lindsay Graham on Facebook posted that we shouldn't pass legislation against guns, but against "godless Hollywood and video games that glorify violence." So basically the right to bear arms is sacrosanct, but it's okay to regulate speech.
But after a shooting is not the best time to talk about gun control!
STOP MAKING POLITICAL THINGS POLITICAL!
I watched Jon Stewart's take on it. Nothing else really needs to be said; it was a nice comedy-free summary.
Somehow, as a Canadian, I blame Obama for this!
We keep confusing rights and privileges in this country.
What's truly scary about her is what she represents. She built her empire on the backs of people she hated, and if she hadn't been caught on camera confessing to using the n-word, no one would've ever believed it about her. Then, she acted as if she was the victim.
I'm going load up Spring Stampede 99 on the network. I think its the best ppv they ever did. Also the last good one.
Sheeple! That's a conservative buzzword, right?
Flat head screwdriver?
M16 vs GTA VWhich one needs regulation?!
Sheeple! Death Camps! Benghazi! Birth Certificate!
Watching the Invasion PPV and the Nick Patrick-Earl Hebner match is better than it has any right to be.
Stewart hit it out of the park... again.
The NRA is running interference for gun manufacturers, like they always do. I expect that there will be some NRA event full of cheering gun nuts in the vicinity of Charleston, SC, in the next few weeks.
A couple days ago, Obama did a fundraiser and a podcast in LA. A bunch of my friends had their going home commute times double or triple.After each complaint, almost all of them had "Thanks Obama" at the end
It's more of a Ron Paul thing I think
Fun throwaway with all the refs. Give them some time to fuck around.Probably the only ref vs ref match I can think of.
Wouldn't that have happened if any president had been there?
President, sports team, Kardashian, etc.
Bush would never come to LA because Hollywood hates him
Okay, but we still don't know it was about race. I mean, where never gonna know that. Just because he said it was about race when he did it and when he was arrested, and he left a racist manifesto, we are still never going to really know what was in his heart. It was probably really an attack on Christians and Obamacare. And it was probably a statement about Benghazi.
Its sad to see what Ken Shamrock has turned into.
A little freudian slip by Obama at that fundraiser:"At a star-studded Hollywood fundraiser hosted by actor-producer Tyler Perry Thursday night, Obama confused his present situation with that of a federal prisoner."We should be reforming our criminal justice system in such a way that we are not incarcerating non-violent offenders in ways that renders them incapable of getting a job after they leave office," he said.Taking his cue from the laughter, Obama acknowledged the Freudian slip."Little slip of the tongue there," he said. "Tyler is going to give me a job once I leave.""
Have you read this: http://deadspin.com/ken-shamrock-is-the-worlds-most-dangerous-can-1712237183
Of course, according to Rick Perry, it was a tragic accident having to do with drugs, not race.
Well, the judge called the family of the shooter (you know, the racists who raised this racist to be a racist) victims too, so I'm not holding my breath for justice here.
I think I'm gonna finish Entourage's first season tonight.
Damnit, it is. I root for Philly for football and have to go elsewhere for anything else.
Yeah, I wish folks could just be real and say "I don't like him because he's black." It wouldn't make them racists; they should just be honest and we can just call them assholes and go on about our lives.
Same judge who said in 2003 that there were four kinds of people in this world: white, black, rednecks, and n-words. Said that out loud, in open court, sitting on the bench.
Perry just needs to have the victims families and the shooters family over to his "N!ggerhead" ranch so they can hug it out.
Because I'm sure a bunch of cops would roll up on that scene and nothing bad would happen
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0FR5YZlznLQI liked this angle a lot.
Yup, read it yesterday before the fight. Pretty spot on piece I thought. I really wish these fighters would stop trying to reclaim past glory at such old ages. Shamrock in particular has tried a "comeback" at least 57 times by now.
No. We keep following people whose views are sold to the highest bidder.
So those escaped prisoners have apparently been seen headed for the Pennsylvania border.
Just looked at the box office for Entourage. That movie is bombing bad. After 17 days, less than $30 million
Ari Gold can't save this one.
Spot on... and depressing as hell.
Dishes done. Now to clean the refrigerator, get some groceries and get a new tire for the front driver side. Discount Tire it is.
Every once in a while society surprises me by doing the right thing.
The really sad part is Shamrock hasn't changed one bit in 20 years. He keeps doing the exact same thing looking for a different result.
Seriously, last night's fight was a fun trainwreck. Just retire, Ken.
So, all politicians of both parties. Fair enough.
His gimmick was how LA and New York are full of all them queers and minorities what ain't Real Americans, despite those two areas having 10% of the country's population.
I think I'm going to get a long tailed coat.
Every girl's crazy 'bout a sharp dressed Mahn
Going to Vegas next week. What is your favorite thing to do there?
Free drinks at the 5 cent slots.
Drink, gamble and hump!
Not much of a gambler. I just like the food, and walking the strip.
After Beavis and Butthead, I always like to call them sluts
Not my favorite, but I did like going to the Hooters Casino to play $2 blackjack and laugh at the human garbage that was there.
I think it was Stewart or someone who tallied up all the places Palin didn't consider the "real America" and it added up to like 70% of the whole country
I always spend a bit more and go to a nice restaurant when I'm there.One tip if you are going with a girlfriend/wife, go to Casa di Amore. Awesome food (ranked in the top 10 on tripadvisor); old school vegas feel with a guy doing the rat pack tunes; if you request it ahead of time, they will send a free limo to and from your hotel (just tip the driver). It's about 3 miles off the strip.
I also went to a crazy midget club in the MGM Grand. That was weird.
I was disappointed there. I thought all the dealers would be hooters girls
They are also on restaurant.com if you want to save a few bucks.
Jurassic World may topple Avengers's 2nd weekend record at $103m plus and Inside Out is on pace for $83mHoly shit.
I'd love to see that invitation.
Chris Pratt is now an A-list guy.
But it suuuuuuuuuuucks. I didn't see the other two movies. Maybe they also sucked.
Why the hell DC didn't called Vincent Chase for Aquaman.
JW beating Pixar on it's second weekend might be the most impressive thing about it's run.
Yeah, I thought it would dip big time after the opening. Guess not.
HOSS DANCE TIME.
I knew it would still do well because of all the press about the record. People who wouldn't normally go see a movie like that would want to see what all the fuss is about. It's how Avatar made it's money.
I know we've beat this dead horse before, but after Dusty's passing, is there any increased probability they do WarGames out of tribute? HHH seems like the kind of guy who might endorse that
The only populous areas that that wing of the Republican Party consider the Real America are Texas and Florida, two of the states who joined an armed insurrection against their government.
I'm a Mets fan. My worst fanexperiences have been down at the Vet and at old Yankee Stadium. Phillies fans can be so damn unbearable.
There's only one death that'll allow for Wargames and it ain't Dustys
I would include Orange County in that too
"HEY PAL THIS MATCH LOOKS A LOT LIKE WARGAMES""No sir! Note the New Day are involved. It's the Clap Trap Match.""I LOVE THOSE DANCING COLOREDS"
Hey, it was on the short list of pictures that I almost went and saw last night, before deciding better of it.That's big time.
X-Pac/Kidman was actually a very good match. Maybe the best Kidman match I've ever seen.
Actually it would make them racists, but they would be honest.
It's a reboot
But he was so good in the original movie.
This Torrie/Stacy backstage segment is a little weird.
It'd make them prejudiced. Racism carries consequences. Prejudice is a belief, while racism is action upon this belief. To me, anyway.Besides, it'd do them some good to identify their prejudice. Maybe they'd actually learn something. Wait...we're talking about Americans. Nevermind.
Oh, man. I fucking hate having to shell out for new tires. Obviously, I'm gonna do it because they're pretty important, but it's always painful.
He's getting $12M for his next movie so Id say so. I'd also say he's part of the new social-media stars where their popularity also stems from connecting from the fans online, which boosts their box office draw, like The Rock.
Going to titty bars and jerking it
Give him the Indy role. I'm on Pratt's bandwagon.
Co-signed, he'd be perfect for it.
If you could give Regal's moveset and intangibles to somebody on today's roster, who would it be?
Does nobody care how BAD he was in Jurassic World?
One of the Bellas. It would be nice to have at least one of them able to wrestle.
If a holly wood type tried connecting with me he'd get a a stern talking to.
He's like Eddy Guerrero, makes everyone love him with a smirk and swagger.
The WWE production is so stale that I don't think they'd want to adjust their stage setup to accommodate for a second ring.
I'm going to a goulash house this evening.
If you could trust him not to kill anybody, I'd give him Goldberg's moveset.
I have a feeling that Cena will bust a SSP or a 450 splash soon.
My God, how are they so bad? Nikki Bella doesn't even have the "weak upper body" excuse that all the Divas who can't throw chops, clotheslines, or do body slams have.
Big Show has had some swank ass finishers over the years. I'd forgotten about the Alley Oop.
Can Brock still do a SSP?
Shane getting Booker T crunk with the pep talk is hilarious. Then they cut to Regal doing the same thing for Tajiri. This show is very interesting.
Seeing Jurassic World today. Anyone have any takes on it?
Have you seen the three-way match from Starrcade '98 with Rey and Juvi? Also very fun
It's a movie.
The guy is in his late 30s and makes millions a year. Presumably, HOPEFULLY, he would never try such a thing.
Doesn't matter. A dinosaur movie needs Burt Tyrannosaurus Macklin
Loved it. Mostly for nostalgic reasons. But it was a fun movie.
Gunner is gone from TNA.Surely, they should just close up shop now, because they'll never recover from this monumental loss.
Anyone else on here a big fan of Box Office Mojo? Love that site? just endlessly fascinating.
Let's hold off on writing our eulogies for TNA until we actually get to see James Storm's new haircut.
Offer him more money.
Under no circumstances would I want to see him try it.
Does anyone think that another boom period can potentially happen? Or has the general public 'wisened up' and it would be impossible to duplicate that success again?
But I wanna see that.
Just give them good wrestling, people will come.
I think it's partly that, and partly that the society's attention is so fractured now with the internet providing any highly specific form of entertainment at any given time that you please that it will be unlikely for anyone to capture that wide of an audience again.
Fair enough. Another view is that prejudice is belief but racism is institutional and requires power. Example, Wal-Mart could be racist but Bob the cashier would be prejudiced. Either way I get your point. Obama's presidency certainly has exposed some prejudice, which is ironic considering those who cited his election as an end to racism and/or prejudice.
May go see it today. It's a toss up between that and Spy
Clap Trap sounds like something you get from Stephanie *audience laugh track*
Anyone here digs Mastodon?
I remember seeing a Bobby Heenan shoot from 2001 & he said fans are too smart now; we were shown all the tricks and the magic is gone. But we drop money on movies with special effects & music that's heavily sampled. There has to be a way to get the mainstream back in...
Prepare for Starlord to be a big part of Infinity War
Shit yeah! May I also recommend Red Fang and Black Tusk
Vince is trying to psych Kurt up, and Kurt says "Enough of the Americana bullshit! You know what I did at the Olympics? I kicked some serious ass!" I love 2001 Kurt.
I really loved Once More Round The sun, don't care if people are calling that album a sell out.
His masterpiece would be in 2005I'm just a sexy KurtI'll make your ankle hurt.
It's pretty good. I prefer Crack The Skye the best
Leviathan dude, Leviathan.
*channels Brain from Punky and the Brain*YES!
One of my favorite records ever. I think you like Bad Religion too, showed my girlfriend Recipe For Hate, she enjoyed.
I think it awakened latent prejudices in people who probably had never realized how they felt. I mean, there are objective reasons to complain about his presidency, but some of the nitpicking and disrespect I've seen in the last six years goes beyond the pale. I've seen him tolerate treatment no president ever has and be blamed for things no president ever has, not to mention receiving no credit for the things he's done that actually worked. This country has a serious race problem, and the fact that we can't openly and frankly discuss it isn't helping matters.
You can never go wrong with Bad Religion
Graffin has my sense of humor, dry as hell.
I forgot all about that...lol. He just wasn't the same wrestler anymore at that point. He should've had the traditional neck surgery in 2003 and fully healed before he returned.
Comedic Angle>Uber serious Angle.
Did you expect thought-provoking eloquent philosophy?
Well, aside from the fact that he's a disgusting murderous asshole, there's no reason that statement can't be true.
I think everyone can be worked. Look at Kim K. and all the reality shows. Thing is they all keep kayfabe so that might be the difference. It's like wrestling was back in the day. "You know that stuff is fake, right?"
And sharp as hell. I've been meaning to get his books
He still jumps to the ring apron (who knows why) so it looks like the athleticism is still there.
American Jesus is a great satire, Struck a Nerve is a reflection of our lives. Recipe for Hate is their best work by far.
I don't think so. People talk about cycles, but really the second boom was spurred by a resurgance of the 80s guys coupled with a 90s edge. Attitude fit with the zeitgeist of Eminem, nu-Metal, and South Park. A third boom would have to fit into the zeitgeist somehow, it won't be created "in house".
A pianoman that I know was just telling me about a song from a recent Disney picture called Let it Go and how it's quite popular with children. I put it on, and it's not even very catchy, definitely no Under the Sea.I fear for our future if this is what the children are enjoying.
I worry about a generation that thinks Ninja Turtles are that fucking big. They're not that big. They're people size. They were always people size. Maybe slightly smaller. :/
