Re: Bob Dole has died at 98

I used to work for Arco and saw Bob Dole speak at a company gathering in the early 90s. The pancake makeup was odd, even then. I disagreed with him politically but agree he was a decent man. RIP.

Re: The Wheel of Time (Amazon) -- premieres 11/19/21

It's not my job to remember the characters names. It's the show's job to make them memorable and they are failing.

Re: The Official Biden Presidency Thread

I'm old and cranky but I think the U.S. will never ever elect a woman or a gay man president in the near future. Democrats get your heads on straight (pun intended).

Re: Do you update all your mobile apps?

I voted no , with the exception that some games require you to update.

Re: COVID-19 POLITICAL Thread

I had sort of the same experience, rural Florida in early Nov. Two weeks wait to get a booster. If we can figure out this cognitive dissonance between people not believing Republicans but still...

Re: Favorite opening sequence?

Touch of Evil. The long shot is still amazing. I lived in Venice in the 70s and it still looked a bit like that. My landlord owned a bunch of properties there. He must be rolling in dough now.

Re: The Wheel of Time (Amazon) -- premieres 11/19/21

I believe you and will keep watching but it always makes me laugh hearing the orcs called trollops.

Re: The Wheel of Time (Amazon) -- premieres 11/19/21

The guy that led the hobbits away from the orcs. I never read the books and I'm trying to know the characters by identifying them with LOTR. Gandalf is the best in this one too (so far).

Re: The Wheel of Time (Amazon) -- premieres 11/19/21

I didn't care for the 5th episode. Dropping the ring in lava, how much more LOTR can you get? I'm happy to see drunken Aragorn go. The series has some great actors (mainly the older women), some good...

Re: The Wheel of Time (Amazon) -- premieres 11/19/21

I wasn't impressed with the first episode but I'm glad I stuck with it. It's getting better with every episode. As others have noted with the 4th episode it's really picking up steam. I never read...

Re: The Election 2020 Results Discussion Thread

More people vote but Republicans increasingly make it more difficult for perceived Democratic voters to vote. Although Virginia disproves this. If Democrats can't be bothered to vote we get what we...

Re: COVID-19 POLITICAL Thread

Omicron? I realize it's a Greek letter but it sounds like a lesser Marvel villain. Skip up to Sigma, that sounds threatening.

Re: Animal Crossing: New Horizons (3/20/20: Switch)

Another tip if you have Nintendo Online. Stock up on turnips Sunday and visit:
https://turnip.exchange/

Even better Nintendo Online allows you to trade with the incredibly generous DVDChris.

Re: Cowboy Bebop (Netflix) - Live-Action Series - premieres 11/19/21

Thank you. I re-watched and I'm corrected, Jet and Spike do bicker in the original. Episode 1 isn't one of my favorites but I still prefer the anime. The remake hits many of the same story beats but...

Re: Cowboy Bebop (Netflix) - Live-Action Series - premieres 11/19/21

I watched the first two episodes and wasn't impressed. Too much exposition. I don't need to see Spike and Jet bicker. I don't want Vicious and Julia fleshed out. The Big Shot announcers were terrible...

Re: The 117th US Congress Thread 2021-2023

If progressives were going to give in anyway they should have done it long before last Tuesday. Instead of looking like the gang that couldn't shoot straight.

Re: The 117th US Congress Thread 2021-2023

I doubt BBB will ever pass. Manchin and Sinema will continue to nit-pick. I hope I'm wrong.

Re: Animal Crossing: New Horizons (3/20/20: Switch)

Too little too late. I downloaded the update and the museum is closed to get the coffee shop but it's been so long that I've forgotten whatever plans I had for my island. I'm a hoarder and I guess...

Re: Cowboy Bebop (Netflix) - Live-Action Series - premieres 11/19/21

It's perfect for the casual anime viewer. I'm a big Studio Ghibli fan, I saw Spirited Away on the big screen at the Goldwyn and got a cool souvenir booklet. The Cowboy Bebop English dub is considered...

Re: Favorite movie that is at least three hours long?

I say all the Lord of the Rings extended movies with appropriate meals between disks. No alcohol since kids were there. Only did it once with my teenaged son and a few of his cousins and nowhere near...

Re: Windows 11: Worth the upgrade?

Does File explorer work any better than in Windows 10? It jumps all over the place when I try to rename or access a folder. (I have a lot of old music folders that I originally named without spaces....

Re: Metroid Dread (Switch; 10/8/21)

Yeah, the reviews citing the difficulty have put me off too. I'm old, my reactions are in seconds, not micro seconds. Maybe if they update it with an easy mode I'll play but not until then. Too bad,...

Re: COVID-19 POLITICAL Thread

No offense but I'm glad I didn't run into you. Since the place was mobbed and no one was wearing masks it's not surprising. The Seared Mahi Mahi with Coconut and Cilantro-Lime Sauce at the Coral Reef...

Re: COVID-19 POLITICAL Thread

I'm with you. I took the last time it was over in July to visit with my son and his wife at Disney World and I'm glad I did. But I'm not expecting this respite to last either.
