    Star Wars: The Last Jedi

    I don't know..... I was a kid when Empire/Jedi came out and we all wanted to be Boba. Marketing schemes didn't mean anything to us. I don't know how we were supposed to respond to any pre-marketing campaigns. I don't remember them? How would we have been exposed to it? We spent all day outside playing or inside playing with our star wars toys. We didn't talk about the characters that way.

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi

    Boba Fett was a thing when the movies came out and that was before social media and all of that so I think the interest is genuine for sure. In today's world it would be easy to try to force it or something become a big thing because a late night talk show host did a stupid skit around it then suddenly it's viral and all over the world.... so let's make a movie about it.

    This has been on a lot lately.... and this is why I pay Xfinity $250 a month for every channel... so I can watch movies like the fugitive and fargo anytime I want.

    So you agree with Black Lives Matter?

    The Presidency of Donald J. Trump

    His commitment to law enforcement is questioned every time he tweets or discusses a 'witch hunt' and disparages the FBI. You can't pick and choose.

    OOh.... the 'black friend' defense. You really don't want to play this game. You will lose.

    The Presidency of Donald J. Trump

    It's also the first time a racist, money laundering, compromised scumbag like Donald Trump has gotten a major party nomination.... To suggest he's a victim because he's the first one is stupid.

    The Presidency of Donald J. Trump

    Notice the subtle attempts at word play... an informant is now a spy? Did Rudy ever use informants back when he was a prosecutor?

    What are you currently listening to?

    Yeah me too.... sometimes it's so subtle. THere's the song when they were beating up Billy Bats The one that started off the 'final day' when he was coked up. The Aretha song when he's approaching the new GF. Came to appreciate Monkey Man. "All my friends are junkies...."

    15 years ago a co worker was in the MBA program at Wayne St getting an MBA in what I got my BS in. We talked about it and it turns out he had a few of the same professors. He showed me the syllubus cor these classes and they matched up to what I had in undergrad. I think they were the same course. I think it's mostly just a check the box thing but also there's an element of maturity for the student. After working professionally when you go back to school you find the things we had to do to succeed were not much different from what we do every day. Get a task, do it. Especially if you are in the same discipline.

    The Pet Peeve Thread

    Marlins Man..... At first, a few years ago, it was neat. "There's that guy..." Now I saw him retweeting someone taking a photo of him in an airport. Wearing his orange jersey and visor tilted sideways. Things are better when organic and not a brand. (I am not referring to food).

    certainly not the kind of Jesus they worship at a church that would do something like this.... from a church in Dearborn.

    I would love to see all the Bible thumpers on the west side of the state's reaction if he's our governor. They'll move.

    and the same government that's so inept to do anything right that we need to privatize everything.... is capable of pulling off a deep state government and organize a coup against a sitting President using hundreds of FBI agents, dozens of judges....

    5/16 @1:10 Cleveland Indians vs Detroit Tigers

    good. I miss my yearly rants in October about letting us know when the games were going to be.... was especially stressful in 2013 because we were selling our house and I had to plan around showings, houses for us to look at, etc.

    If two teams are tied for the division lead after 162 then I think it should be head to head. No need for a game playoff. Honor the 19 games you played against each other. Keep the postseason schedule in tact as much as possible. I don't mind the two WC teams going up against each other to face another division winner. I don't see that as punishment. I see it as an improvement as to how it was before where a WC winner was put on even footing with a division winner. Considering the need to make money I think the system today is about as good as you can expect. You get the excitement of one and ones. What I would like is more structure in scheduling. I think now they're trying to do something where the top team gets to pick or something like that? AL WC on Tuesday. NL WC on Wed. ALDS plays Thur/Fri/Sun/Mon/Wed. NLDS plays Fri/Sat/Mon/Tue/Thur. ALCS plays Fri/Sat/Mon/Tue/Wed/Fri/Sat and NLCS is Sat/Sun/Tue/Wed/Thur/Sat/Sun... WS on Tue/Wed/Fri/Sat/Sun, Mon/Tue.

    I bet Mueller knows
  23. We had a fun time at the game. We turned in some old tickets so it wasn't a "normal" game for us. I noticed a lot of young people at the game. That was nice to see. College aged. I under dressed and it was windy where we sit so when it was 8-3 we decided to go downstairs and walk around a bit and then leave. We made it to LF under the scoreboard when the rally inning started so we stayed put. We left when Stumpf loaded the bases. I am not complaining about long games but during the week I gotta get to bed early during the school year. Nice win. No illusions but this is fun to watch.

    One was a DC judge and the other VA. Two different cases. There’s still hope.
