The problem wasn't fireworks to the face; just my schrubbery. i like that my neighbors were quick to point out they had a permit for fireworks; I guess that excuses it.
SHARK WEEK starts tonight!It feels weird for it to be so early in the summer, though.
Anyone watch the new Scream show? I'm going to check that out after the Indians game today.
Watched most of NJPW Dominion this morning. Some good-pretty good matches and of course AJ-Okada was the tits. Nothing MOTYC or anything IMO but it was worth it just to see Sakuraba pull out a plancha. That's something I never thought I'd see.
I have pets, I hate fireworks. Everyone's all "oooh ooooh bright lights oooh ooooh bang bang" like primitive man meanwhile cats and dogs are terrified.
I live in a relatively rough area of Cardiff where twats set fireworks off randomly on weekdays.
Me too. One of my dogs was completely off the hinges last night. Panting, shaking, pacing all over the house, trying to through closed doors. Fortunately it was only lasted an hour.
I'm looking forward to checking it out later.
Yeah that sucks, dogs definitely tend to react worse. Our cats tend to run off and hide, but dogs can go nuts.
I don't get the point either, a full well timed professional display great, but a couple of coloured bursts, just seem like a waste of money to me.
Other people suck.
Really hope we don't change from Disqus :/
I said this on the Cesaro/Joe thread, but whatever, I'm repeating it: Owens does so many cool little things that no-one else does; against Balor the fakeout of the Mr. Perfect snapmare into a chinlock was a thing of beauty and then pulling Finn down by his tights when he was trying to escape - superior pro wrestling.
Ivan Nova pitching for the Yanks. He invented baseball.
I'm listening to the Jericho/Bryan podcast from last year. I really might be in love with Daniel Bryan. <3
BonzaiDBSM didn't event bullshit, but he's doing an excellent job perfecting it. <_<
How long before Vince puts Samoa Joe and the Usos together just because it's Vince
The vet perscribed xanax for him 'cause he freaks out during thunderstorms too. Doesn't work that well though.
My landlord hired a gardener to clear our jungle-like garden. At the back, by the fence, he uncovered dozens of empty vodka bottles that somebody from the house behind ours had been disposing of when they went out to "do the bins". Like I said, bit of a rough area.
He operates on a higher level of wrestling consciousness right now. The best way I could describe it is that Owens is a throwback to the 1980s, when heels were actually heels. He's one of the few wrestlers that still plays to the crowd during matches. A lot of heels, if you can call them heels in the WWE today barely play to the crowd at all, as if their heeldom begins and ends backstage.
It's OK. I just feel like this road has been too well traveled, the self-aware horror movie, I think it was clear with 3 & 4 theres nowhere to go with this franchise . Although there is a pretty good gag in the opener where Bella Thorne tries to call 911 through Siri and it dials up Pottery Barn. She was also in a Lifetime movie as a heroin addict last week, so between that and being the requisite Scream dead star walking, her characters are having a rough go of it post-Disney Channel.
He's getting bombed early and Stranger's Dangers is looking at their first loss in several weeks.
It's great that it appears Owens doesn't have many restrictions to go out there and generate heat. He's pretty damn good at it.
Enzo & Cass should debut on the main roster right away, if only because I think those guys vs New Day would be tremendous fun.
That's not a horrible idea, though. The Usos are perfectly fine in the ring, but they're bland as fuck and in need of a shakeup. Using the Usos as the hitmen for BOSS heater Samoa Joe in an edgy trio stable would be pretty sweet, actually.
It's odd, because some of his work is just Heel 101 but it feels so fresh because everyone else forgot how to do it.
Currently up 8-1-1 with a chance to get to 9-1 this week if either of my two SPs or someone else can get a W
Exactly this. He's a throwback, and is thus fresh by virtue of being old school.
I'm sure some of the other guys would be allowed to do it if they had any balls.
When the Usos turn heel and need an enforcer - I can get on board with that.
"Are you not entertained? I don't care, I hate this stupid country and everyone in it!"
This. Any notion of restrictions, in-ring or otherwise, is way overblown.
It didn't help that this guy I'm facing loaded up with starters. At the same time, my hot hitters have now become cold and I see a lot of my players' +/- ratings in the red.
That is the in ring wrestling line of the year so far. Owens took heeldom to another level yesterday morning. So sick of the 'cool' years.
Finn Balor, Cesaro and Neville vs. Samoa Joe and the Usos. #BookIt
I don't think it's so bad either. It is not without precedence either, in WWF or NWA. I would only fear for the modern Vince rationale
He's late '96 Austin right now. Too awesome of a heel to stay heel for very long.
New Samoan Swat Team. Feud em with New Day, Wyatts, Shield when they all reunite
Greek Referendum results are starting to come in and so far with 20% of votes called. No is winning by 60% to 40%
Such a shame he's out as the NXT guys are coming through.
The problem is, the moment a new Samoan Swat Team (Joe & Usos) got over as badasses, you know Vince would put Sufferin Succotash in there to ruin it all
I'll find a way to blame Maria Menenououous and her sharted pants
Good for them.
Don't know why the US doesn't bail them out. We send billions to countries that hate us. This would productive for a change.
GREECE ALSO HATES YOU
They have been bailed out but they need bailing out of the debt repayments because their economy is so fucked up.
While I agree with the first reason (We really should NOT be sending about half of the aid we do...), I fully disagree with your last line. All a bailout would do is encourage the socialist government to stay on course, and we'd be right back here in months or years.
Grease starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton John >>> Greece
Actually, Roman Reigns and Samoa Joe as a badass babyface tag team would be the tits. I don't know that a foursome with Reigns/Joe/Usos would work so well (might as well through Tamina in there while you're at it), but I'd take a new take on a Samoan SWAT Team heel stable over the Authority.
Groundskeeper Willie's retirement grease >>> Greece.
Not many around whose character is evident in their in-ring demeanor, but he's one of them.
Excuse my American ignorance: if they vote yes, what happens? If they vote no, what happens?
Greece deserves no, I repeat, NO sympathy. They did this to themselves, let them sort out the consequences. You step in to help one country, you'll have to bail out the rest of them when the other weak points in the Eurozone go tits up.
Grease 2 >>> Greece
Also, after the Japan show, WWE should permanently adopt the diagonally angled ring. I don't think I've ever seen it before and it looked very cool.
"I have a feeling this business is going to consume our whole lives."
So the audience for Magic Mike XXL is 96% female; are the 4% all gay or pussy-whipped guys?
The referendum is on whether to accept the EU bailout conditions. If they choose Yes, then there will be increased austerity, pension reductions, welfare cuts, job losses etc. If they choose No, then their country will have no money and will have to either get an easier deal from the creditors or suffer through increased austerity, pension reductions, welfare cuts, job losses etc except now they will be (re)setting up their own currency, which will mean they are out of the Euro and possible out of the EU itself. The benefits for the country of leaving the EU are complicated and debateable, but leaving the Euro would be I believe a positive e move.
I really don't know how to feel about it, because how will more austerity help anything? It would just fuck those who are already fucked.
Most importantly they'll have a currency they can control. Things get vert complicated when the major creditor of a sovereign nation's debt also essentially controls the currency. Gee I wonder why it's austerity and pain over devaluation...
The 4% are there strictly for research purposes.How many of the 96% are of the overweight variety who otherwise wouldn't have a shot at someone like Magic Mike? You know the kind I'm talking about.
The "almost all women" type?
so would this be like helping out your drunk friend who is no good with money? You hope it helps him out but more likely in 6 months, he will be likely back asking for a handout.
Or guys getting pussy when the movie's over.
Either way, the average Greek WILL suffer in some way, whether over the short term or the long term. Or even bothGreece's largest problem, to most, is their economy does not produce on a level that can support their social programs.
Close enough. Although it's not quite THAT bad.
Terminator is bombing here in the US. It better make a shitload overseas or this franchise is dead.
This. Hopefully the film threw them a bone like with Olivia Munn's tits last time around
Just checking: You're referring to the ring's position in relation to the aisle, right? Instead of the ramp leading right to one side, it leads to a corner.
You know there's a gif out there with an overweight chick dancing with a muscular shirtless dude, throwing her crotch at him, when suddenly another dude comes over and kisses the guy, sending the fat chick away with a very disappointed look on her face.
If America was Greece, they'd vote No, to regain some kind of independence and control over their future, even if it was tougher going
And on the flip side of this, 330AM this morning, Showgirls was on one of the movie channels. Trainwreck.
The Greek economy by itself worked fine for a long time, however the problem with the Euro is you have dozens of countries of differing sizes with different economic systems, different taxation, social structures etc and you are now trying to force them to conform to a interdependent currency. I expect other countries to go the same way eventually, particularly the smaller members of the Euro because they simply don't have the size to control the currency like they would do if they had their own currency.
Yeah. Didn't know quite how to describe it.
Didn't Cena get paid a few hundred bucks as a dare to have sex with an overweight wrestling fan?
Being not far removed from military dictatorship is also a huge issue, as well as the fact that the populace is very, very old. Greeks are almost as old as the Japanese. Having their own currency again would help them copy successful small nations like Taiwan, who industrialized in a hurry.
Gotta be gay. To be a man in a whooping female audience like would be hell. No marriage/relationship could withstand it.
Glorious trainwreck. That movie has developed a cult following for a reason. It's kind of gotten awesome over time.
Yes, and he allegedly did it with gusto.
That friend-zoned guy who is treated like "one of the girls".
I wonder how much of that is because Jurassic World which caters for a similar audience was far bigger and performed far better than expected
Dancing At The Blue Iguana - That's my stripper movie of choice.
The hottest Jessie Spano ever was.
It cost us £9.80 a ticket to see JWorld, and it sucked. I'll go to the cinema again probably sometime next year.
The smart countries by the by held their currency. The Euro was a real win for large economies like France and Germany because it refinanced their debts. Greece ought to look to Iceland.
THIS is why I rarely go to the cinema anymore. I see live theatre for £10. why would I pay £7 to see a movie?
There are few women on my FB page that posted links and pictures for Magic Mike. And no, they're not exactly a size 4.
I usually get discount tickets for $8 by ordering them in a bunch. There are also some $2 theaters near me that show movies that are 3 months old.
I saw an ad a few days ago for Terminator and the CGI looked awful. Bad CGI will make me skip a movie faster than just about anything else.
Yesterday was a good day, went out on a boat with a few friends. Went fishing all day, then we went over to a fireworks show. Lots of beer was consumed. I don't think I left my buzzed state once I reached it at 9 in the morning.
I see movies for their story not because they blow shit-up or used awesome CGI.
Latest Grexit updateMore than 35% of the ballot papers have now been counted, and no is still firmly ahead with 61% of the votes. The landslide is still on course
Just found out that a friend of my best friend has a crush on me. Sorry, I have a girlfriend.
You know everyone has aids and shit!
Guys hoping for an Olivia Munn style random tits appearance.
I've seen that, love that gif.
It probably should have died after the second one.
If you look at Target they often have cheap DVDs with free passes to either a certain movie or any. Right now there are DVDs with tickets for Magic Mike or Minions on DVDs that are onsale for 3 for $10. I was going to buy Jurassic Park for that reason, but the reviews didn't make me want to see JW right away.
New Drachma, BABAY!!!!
Good on him, making wishes come true for more than sick kids.
Arnie dies, Skynet is destroyed and John lives a normal life with his mom, the end.
It did. The 3rd & 4th movies were just shaking the pocket change out of the corpse.
I can proudly say that's all of either of those movies I've seen. And I've seen that several times ;)
Sorry, I never got the appeal of Olivia Munn.
Oh just go for it! Then you can have one of those wacky sitcom experiences where you have a date with both of them on the same night at the same restaurant. Hilarity will ensue!
Only way I would continue it is for some sort of crazy crossover, like Predator vs. Aliens vs. Terminator summer blockbuster nonsense. Not just the same old Terminator storyline
Ha- I turned that on for a second before work, though I turned to Wolf of Wall Street, and saw something than that THAT PART for once.
She gets naked. That's about it
Agreed, it tied everything up perfectly.
HAHAHA, no. My girl already hates my best friend, cause she found out we got together once when we had our short break up. Sadly, there will be no triple kiss with those two, just plain old hatred.
There was a project for Cameron after 2, but saw there was no way he could make a decent sequel. Like you said, everything ties perfectly.
Aliens invade, the Machines enlist the help of humanity, Aliens steal the Machines time travel tech to go into the past where there are no Machines, humans must follow to assure the Skynet & Judgment Day happens.
They need to bring back that storyline in today's sitcoms.
I've seen better nudes, i.e: Brie Larson.
Although as is the case with time travel movies it does create a bit of a paradox. If Skynet never comes to be then time travel is never invented and there's no way or reason to send Kyle Reese back to bone Sarah.
Kenan & Kel had a great episode with that booking.
A new time line is created.
Some fellas just like wang. It's natural.
Didn't you explain you were on a break? Your kinda like Ross, if that's the case then you're going to end up with your best friend.
That's cool but in this new timeline John should fade away like Marty in BttF.
She accepted that we broke up on that when I got together.
I might end up going to see Magic Mike XXL, we'll see.
Well all I know is everything seems to have Greek yogurt in these days, and to that I vote NO!
Flair will be in there, that's something.
I was going to do the yard today but it looks like it's about to rain, oh well.
While I don't think she's a very good actress, she's super-hot and hangs out in my state because of her boyfriend.
Just tell them to 69 and make up.:)
It's doing phenomenal business overseas and it's looking like it will be the highest grossing Terminator movie in the franchise.
It's like The Expendable movies, huge money overseas.
I never get that attitude. Just because you see one lovely woman nude doesn't mean someone 90% as attractive still isn't worth seeing sans clothes.Now, if we were talking Melissa McCarthy or Rosie O'Donnell, then sure, only those with mental issues would enjoy that sight.
Kissing and making up is so 20th Century.
I had to work. Got off just in time to limp downtown to the lakeside park and watch fireworks. Ate an ice cream cone on the drive home.Living the American Dream!
I don't know if someone mentioned the Rougeaus earlier, but I was just thinking how I didn't even like them when they were faces. They just didn't seem that likeable when they were supposed to be faces, so it was an easy transition. I think I've wanted to punch Jacques in the face for about 28 years now.
Catching up with Assassin's Creed: Rogue since I never brought my 360 to NY with me. I really enjoy this game.
Looks like Kate Upton isn't going to have do any work in the bedroom tonight.
I was watching ECW One Night Stand 2 and I was thinking that the restarted ECW brand could have been something great akin to what NXT is now. Don't bring in that many ECW alums, keep guys like RVD, Sabu and such (maybe Dreamer for shits and giggles, NO Sandman). Then lure guys away from TNA/ROH like Joe, Styles, Daniels, Colt, etc. Then take talented guys from the RAW and SD roster that are kind of floundering and not doing much. I like Angle being in ECW, can build to Angle vs Joe for the ECW Title in the future. Downplay the hardcore stuff too, save it for big blowoff matches. If it's really needed, bring back the Hardcore title and keep the garbage wrestling contained there.
This Asgardian warrior to Simmons: "You are easily the most beautiful thing I've seen in a thousand years."- And that's a shoot, brother!
Can't wash the stink of France off anyone
Great heels for the xenophobic 80s audience, really sharp in the ring.
Posy Heyman that's not far from what happened, they had a few veterens in there like Goldust, Christian, Regal etc but most of the undercard were newcomers like Sheamus, indy guys who converted to WWE style like Punk or guys that needed some seasoning like Ryder
Right; they were much better suited to being heels. It's like the New Day today, or even how they thought Honky Tonk Man could be a face at first.
That would have been fantastic. I wish Vince would have just let him do what he wanted (within reason) and given him a budget for new talent.
I have a crush on you too.
"Alright Simpson, I don't like you and you don't like me.""I like you!""Well I don't like YOU!""Maybe you would if you got to know me!"
Not with that attitude.
As looked up at that hairy drumstick, I knew I needed a drink...
I just watched the clip of Vince hiring Stacy as his personal assistant. Never seen it before and it was hilarious. Anyone know what year that was?
They're from Quebec, not France.
must be 2002
That Sheamus vs. Bryan 2/3 falls re-match at Extreme Rules 2012 should have been a big double-turn. Bryan had serious momentum, Sheamus was boring as fuck. Fall 1: Bryan gets a clean win, as Sheamus underestimates the guy he beat in 18 seconds at WM28.Fall 2: Sheamus beats Bryan in a hard-fought match. He acts more heelish, with a chip on his shoulder after the first fall loss.Fall 3: Bryan just won't die. Sheamus throws everything at him, Bryan keeps coming. Sheamus resorts to a belt shot, then locks the Cloverleaf to pass him out. Sheamus is back to the asshole bully character, Bryan is the ultimate underdog who *should* have won.
"Sheamus is back to the asshole bully character, Bryan is the ultimate underdog who *should* have won."They had to save that for the GLORIOUS Orton reign in 2013.
I went to the Foo Fighters concert in DC yesterday. It was amazing. Dave Grohl broke his leg in Europe so he had some kind of throne constructed so he could sit on it and play.
Probably dudes whose gf's or wives dragged them to the movie. I had to go see 50 Shades of Grey with my wife. That movie was fucking awful. They somehow managed to make a movie about S&M and where a reasonably attractive woman gets naked a ton boring as hell.
I don't know how to explain it, but fire made it good.
Those Vince reaction gifs are manna from heaven
Agreed. It was a great match though.
To be specific between the draft and Judgement Day that year.
He was so dedicated to the character. I haven't laughed that hard in a long time
AWAY from my face?:: pondering ::Well, hearing that fucking *yesterday* would have saved me a trip to the ER.Jerk.
The ones where they sub Reigns in for Stacy are great.
Yes it was. I think their feud could have continued on nicely from there too. Put Sheamus over Orton and Big Show en route to SummerSlam. Bryan recoups with wins over ADR, Jericho, then wins MITB for the second year in a row. Cashes in for 'Night of Champions' pre-emptively, with something to prove after the previously losses. Bryan beats Sheamus at 'NOC', then retains in a Cell match the next month.
Some jackass in Maine lit a mortar off the top of his head. He dead.
Darwinism at it's finest
People forget that Bryan made Sheamus pass out during one of those falls. I don't recall Sheamus ever submitting or passing out other than that one time.
Adam got it...right (heh). Natural selection.
A movie like Terminator would benefit from the "less-is-more" approach for the trailer.
(Ric Flair voice) "We're gonna slap you around and when we get done with you, they are going to call you Stephen "DL" Stasburg."
They really aren't. You tell a Quebecois that they're from France and they'll leave you in a puddle of blood...and poutine!
Save the actual tap-out moment for their blow-off inside the Cell. If they really want to have Sheamus as a face, maybe he does a respect handshake and endorses Bryan after ending their series of matches
I prefer the WBF version.
I don't get how Danny Salazar has the ability to go from unhittable to the worst pitcher in baseball in a matter of one inning.
I like the Gary Strydom one.
Free Willy made a fortune despite giving away every single scene of importance away in the trailer and putting the end of the movie on the poster.
This is even more extraordinary.
Best BOD gimmick: Michael Xavier's love for Hogan or Hartkiller's hate for Bret/love for Shawn?
Boras is a smart, smart man. Get the money when you can, while you can because there are no guarantees. Shame too, that rookie run by Stras was magic
Not really interested in hearing about your gay sexcapades. #NotJudgingYou
/visceral hatred of the Jays
Xavier by a MILE. Hartkiller's more humorous, Xavier seems to legitimately believe what he says.
That's just because it's baseball season. His other hate/love are year round.
I thought he was going to be something special. It seems like he's missed significant time every season. If I were the Nats I'd see what I could get for him. Probably a team out there that would bite.
Kids loved that movie and it did great. Animated movie trailer show a lot too. Showing adults all the action parts during an overly-long trailer is ill-advised.
Oh, wait. I'm sorry. I didn't complete that sentence.Because baseball *sucks.*:: snicker ::
or he's completely committed to the gimmick. Either way it's dedication
Not sure exactly what you're saying there. Either fireworks into the face are gay, or having a guy shoot his load into my face would necessitate a trip to the hospital.I don't think either one is correct.
Best BoD gimmick: Cresto's memes/avatars or Shelton Benjamin's pro-wrestling blackness?
