  1. I'm gonna rip of the sports version of this thread and create one for music. There are times when I want to mention something music related but it's not deserving of a thread, like that Mindless Self Indulgence thread and when I post my mix albums, and this can be a good place to just discuss anything about music that you don't think should have its own thread.
  2. Schedule
  3. Blade Runner spoilers...

  5. Going with Astros and Dodgers. So help me god I'll never pick the Nationals to win another playoff series. The curse of shutting down Strasburg years ago is real. He has a bag of gimmicks that he throws at the wall. Sometimes they stick, sometimes they don't. Either way, he gets viewed as a genius. Make no mistake about, they won the World Series last year in spite of their manager, not because of him. He was out-managed every step of the way in the World Series last year.
  6. Apparently Neville quit WWE last night and walked out. This is surprising. He'd done great work as cruiserweight champ and it appeared that he graduated from that division and was moving onto bigger things.
  7. No. I think it only had two songs on it. "Polyamorous" and then something else I think.
  8. Thoughts... - For some reason I felt like Snoke was talking to Rey that entire time and not Kylo. It would make sense that he would be more interested in the one who beat Kylo and not Kylo himself. - I don't like how Finn is seemingly some side story supporting player this time around. - That alien thing next to Chewie was very cute and had me laughing. - They better not make Luke the villain trying to kill Rey cause her power reminds him of Vader. That will destroy my interest in Star Wars. Luke Skywalker should always be a hero.
  9. What the fuck! Rian Johnson warned not to watch the trailer for spoilers. I guess that ending is what he was talking about.
  10. What is this Hollywood ass kissing you speak of? And while I didn't like Rogue One a lot, the Vader scene at the end was AMAZING and the action for the last 45 minutes or so was awesome. And despite Rey being too perfect, I did like Episode VII. Although this talk about it being better than Episode III is nonsense. And I will be supremely pissed off if Luke dies or ends up being the villain...which was kinda hinted at in the trailer that just aired. It's also gonna be dumb and predictable when Rey ends up being a more powerful force user than Luke.
  11. FYI Star Wars tickets available now. It's not supposed to be available until after trailer at halftime but I just got mine. Grab them now before the site crashes.
  12. I wouldn't get rid of Bradley. He's the best fielder in baseball. His glove more than makes up for his lack of offense. They need to dump Moreland and get a power bat at first. That's their biggest need this offseason. Pedroia probably needs to go too but he's too iconic and they won't get rid of him. Plus, I'm not sure if there are any better replacements out there. I think starting pitching will be fine and bullpen should be good as well assuming Smith and Reed aren't free agents. I really hope they get rid of Farrell. Maybe it's still my utter disgust that they got rid of the best manager in baseball who should've been managing the Sox for another ten years but I've never like Farrell. With the exception of that complete fluke World Series in 2013, they've spent the past four years either in last place or getting eliminated in the first round of the playoffs. It's time to move on.
  13. That's a damn shame about Watt.
  14. So SNL had a skit filmed about Harvey Weinstein but they cut it before it aired. When asked why it was cut, SNL creator Lorne Michaels said "it's a New York thing." No, no, no...this isn't a New York thing. It's a Hollywood thing. See Hollywood likes to act like they're better than everyone. They embarrass Syrian refugees by propping them up at award shows so the celebs feel better about themselves. These Hollywood elite are so quick to call out any injustice they see from the president or any other hot-button issue in the news. But when it comes to the sexual abuse of women and children they turn a blind eye. SNL isn't afraid to do skits about anything...except when it involves one of their own getting exposed about Hollywood's dirty little secret. These people are the biggest hypocrites you'll ever see.
  15. I have some Breaking Benjamin demo CD from before they were big. I don't remember how I got it exactly. Probably came free with something I got at a CD store. I should've sold it to one of you guys for $100.
  16. Sadly I was very disappointed with Blade Runner 2049. My main complaint was that the movie was waaaaay too long which helped make it very boring. Now the first Blade Runner was kinda boring at parts but it was only two hours so it wasn't a big deal. When a boring movie is pushing three hours, it feels like six hours. The movie looked nice but not as good as the first one. And there was some spoilery stuff I had issues with. Basically the first Blade Runner was Alien and then in 2049 they turn it into Prometheus. I won't go into detail on this until someone else sees it. I didn't like the first Blade Runner the first time I saw it either and now it's one of my favorites so hopefully the new one grows on me over time. A sequel seems unlikely because the movie was a huge flop at the box office. The public must've caught wind that it wasn't a superhero movie so they decided not to show up.
  17. I wasn't planning on watching the tag match but I'll give it a watch now that you gave it rave reviews. The main event was pretty good but it went on for too long. If they could've crammed all that in and cut out 15 minutes to make the match 24 minutes instead of 39, I think I would've enjoyed it more. I also wish Shane didn't jump off the cage again. I feel like every additional time he goes off the cage it makes what he and Mick did previously less special. I really liked the fighting at the top for so long. That was awesome. Even though you knew they must've reinforced the fuck out of the roof, it was still tense because you never knew if a bump would lead to someone falling through. And I'm happy with the Zayn heel turn as anything new for him is an improvement right now. I also watched the Roode/Ziggler match because when I turned the PPV on to see the main event that match was about to start so I just stuck with it. Very average match. Roode should be a heel.
  18. I think any semi-intelligent baseball fan knows the answer to that question.
  19. Going with Nats (so help me god if they lose again when I pick them to win a playoff series) and D-Backs. That NL West series was much tougher for me to pick than the other NL series. I like how the D-Backs are throwing Walker in there with Kershaw. Just giving up on game 1 and then start fresh with their better pitchers game 2 and beyond with no Kershaw haha.
  20. While that may be true, the worldwide box office total almost doubled when Rock joined in part 5, compared to part 4.
  21. Tyrese Gibson blaming The Rock for Fast 9 getting delayed: I understand his complaints. The guy basically only gets a paycheck when a new Transformers or Fast & Furious movie comes out. But my god what a bunch of whiny, jealous bitches the people in these movies are. You'd think they'd be more grateful to the person who came in and saved their franchise. I really wish The Rock would just tell them to fuck off and stop doing these movies. He can go and make his Hobbs spinoff with Jason Statham and that will be a perfectly fine success without all of the bums from the main F&F series in the movie.
  22. You can always count on Greinke to get lit up in a playoff game. I'll have my NL predictions soon but I'm going with Houston and Cleveland in the AL.
  23. So apparently the person playing the part of Sister Abigail is going to be...
