1. Why quarantine the survivors, lock down the plane but put the cargo in some random warehouse. Even after you saw the glowing mystery substance all over the cargo hold where it seemed to emanate from. And then see a giant mystery death coffin thing and not use any kind of protective suit or anything.
2. The bodies. see #1. No one knows wtf the sickness is but they're all dead so they're not able to spread the sickness. No worries just take them to the normal morgue down town with the rest of the stiffs. no security, no concern about contagens. blah.
3a. The bureaucracy and overtly careless and inefficient management of the CDC and Health and Human Services. It makes them look like idiots.
3b. The part when the lawyer somehow gets the head of whatever government agency to take the case away from the CDC because of a story about carbon monoxide or something. SHOW THEM THE FUCKING WORMS! omg why dont you just show them the creepy worms you found. not one mention of it.
4. The main character's family, and alcoholism.. unless it plays a very integral part of the plot line, I dont give a shit.
I'm sure there's more ... I'm over this stupid show. It insults my intelligence. I wanted it to be something more I guess but it's turning out to be a badly written outbreak zombie vampire nazi show.

There's been a billion teenagers in really good bands all over the world that no one gave a shit about. I honestly don't think musically they deserve a major million dollar record deal at this point. I've seen their videos, they're ok but really still far away from being at the level of other signed bands.
So here's what I think is going on and I'll say what no one else will. It's because they're cute, uncharacteristically black kids playing metal, a predominantly white genre. I'm not saying they shouldn't be playing metal, that's rad, I don't see race and I dont care that they are black but I see Sony taking advantage of a unique potential in sales. Sony doesn't give a shit about them. They don't even have a singer. How much has sony cared about instrumental metal bands in the past? ZERO. They're out v, bands like Isis and Pelican have found success on indie labels and Sony couldnt give a fuck. I'm guessing Sony will find a sleazy manager and a hot shot producer to find the perfect 16 yr old black kid singer and make a slick record that will have a hooky single you wont be able to avoid for a whole summer.
Enjoy your 15 mins guys. I hope all the best for them. I hope they can retain their integrity and be a honest to goodness metal band and have a lasting career that allows them to do what they love for a living for a long time. But I just dont think it will go down like that. I hope they have a good lawyer at least.
Prove me wrong world.
It was an anti-littering campaign from the 80's. Most people from California, like me that hadn't been to or hadn't known people from Texas probably thought it is some Texas pride thing emanating from a sports team or state historical event. But it was created by an advertising agency to be a catchy way for people to stop throwing trash on the ground. Akin to "Click it or ticket" for seatbelt use reminders it's no more than some shit to remind people of shit they should just do anyway.
|nothing to do with litter. unless|
you're talking about white trash
Maybe it is totally understood in Texas. Maybe people there have had it drilled down their throats since 86. From an outsider, hearing people misuse the phrase makes the eternal pessimist in me angry. I just assume everyone from the South are stupid mouth breathers who could care less about the origins of a phrase they're using, missing the point and carelessly throwing garbage on the ground on a regular basis.

This is basically the same exact video but they changed the word "filter" to "recommendation"

I looked on the Google but couldn't find anything. Is this a thing? Is it just a gag?

So, that came and went. Fast forward to two weeks ago. Meg and I make a trip down to Ferndale to get a sticky bun from this place we'd been to once before. It was a hole in the wall we stumbled into with some friends from out of town some months ago. We had no expectations but this sticky bun was like a gangbang of deliciousness in your mouth. So finally we'd made some time for ourselves and slightly rearranged out schedule to get the same day off, woke up early and went to Ferndale. We get there and it's closed. Apparently because they were moving into a new location down the street. We looked for somewhere else to go but just about every other place was either
|here's a close up|
But we remembered that some of the places we'd made a mental note of that we had already been to in the short time living here, and didn't think they were all that special. Come to think of it, even back in the Bay Area we actually went out of our way to try a couple DDD places and thought they were mediocre at best.
So, if you've tried Guy's recommendations and thought he was full of shit, try Humboldt Sweets. It's the real deal.
Sidenote: he went to Lolita Cheese Factory too and that doesn't suck. Also, Halloween III was filmed there. Maybe there's a connection between 80's cult horror and good food in Humboldt.

Does it bug anyone else when in movies or TV when people leave an office or somewhere where something critical happens and they don't talk about it until they're about to get into the car? Like the whole walk down the hallway, the elevator ride, the walk across the lobby, in the parking garage stairs, the walk across the parking lot, while standing on the curb waiting for the cab... All that time they didn't talk about the big thing that happened just before that we all know both of them wanted to talk about. They wait until they get to the car.
I know this works better for the scene but it just bugs me. It just seems so forced and fake.

I was standing at our counter that faces the aisle with the higher priced tools and I saw a scruffy older man with baggy, dirty pants and a long shirt. We have many legitimate customers who come from job sites who look scruffy so I'm not quick to assume he's a homeless tweaker. They usually are tho. Anyway.. he reaches for a $50 pair of wire cutters, turns away from me and proceeds to shove them down the front of his pants. I dont know if he saw me there at first but as he turned to check he saw me looking right at him from 12 feet away. I said "hey, you gonna pay for that?" in the tone of did you seriously just do that right in front of me? He sheepishly said a bunch of "aww I wasnt gonna do that.. aww" while he pulled a 12 x 7 inch package from his 24 inch inseam dungarees. I expected to see the top sticking up from his belt when he lifted his shirt but he got that thing ALL the way down in there. That's when I noticed his belt was loosened up for easy stuffing. I told him "If you really want to buy these I can take them up to the register for you... but you cant be putting stuff down your pants man" He handed me the item and walked off. At this time my co-worker was tracking him through the main aisle of the store and he was gone in a flash.

After Transformers I'd lost all hope that someone could make a remake of a classic series and not fuck it up. And when I heard the genius behind LOST was going to make StarTrek I didn't give it much thought. I saw it and liked it but I realized the more I watch the new StarTrek movies, the less I hate JJ Abrams. These movies are really good. He really did reboot the characters of the original in the best possible way. It's not just another shitty remake. It's not even really a remake. It's a brand new timeline.
The way he set it up allows for new stories but still following the canon of the original. Also he was very clever using just enough time travel to set it up without falling too far into the difficulty and trappings of writing time travel.
It almost gives me a new hope that the Star Wars movie won't totally blow.
The LOST ending still sucked tho. I don't think I'll ever get over that. Although I lay most of the blame on Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse for that shit.
