Roseanne ReduxI'm still not watching this, but now I realized why - I don't believe that the Roseanne Connor that I loved, the Roseanne that was standing up for labor rights and conditions, the Roseanne that was ahead of her time on gay rights and gender equality, coul Go »
Past TenseFirst thing that came to mind is the: following Sam the dog into a building scene from I Am Legend. The YouTube clip doesn't do it justice, but I will never forget seeing that in the theater. Heart Go »
Memento MiscellanyDo certain objects unexpectedly feel like a connection to the past for you? I expect that feeling for souvenirs and picture frames that are intended to evoke memories, but I find myself surprised when I think about how certain ordinary objects conjure up Go »
Les Enfants TerriblesMillenials want to make the world better. Literally every other generation just wants to watch it burn. I don't know how popular this is outside of my Higher Ed circles, but the Beloit College Mindset Go »
Lowest of the LowI'm very much against corporate personhood. Corporations should not get legal protection for their "beliefs" and "opinions." But if we're going to have it, we can't reward some opinions and punish others. Go »
Singularity SensationA truly beautiful mind. I'm in my third reading of A Brief History of Time and highly recommend Black Holes and Baby Universes. Remarkable, witty, and possessing an accelerated sense of irony. Go »
Oscars 2018It was a good year in our contest. Returning players did well, but new player Dave Guthmann, who joined only a day before the contest, won with 120 out of a possible 124 points. Incredible! Go »
ParklandCredit where credit is due - Rick Scott is actually trying to do something: http://www.tampabay.com/florida-politics/buzz/2018/02/23/rick-scott-proposes-450-million-school-safety-program/ Go »
Dexter and PebblesI have no doubt that some people do legitimately need such animals. I haven't really tried using a hamster to cope through life's cruelties, so who am I to judge? But simultaneously, I very much doubt that most of the airline passengers (and restaurant-go Go »
Star Trek: DiscoveryKelly and I just finished watching the end of the first season. Final verdict: We love this show. This has become both our favorite show on the (proverbial) air today, and a Sunday-night ritual for us that I cannot wait to resume in the fall. Go »
The Truth is Still Out ThereI was so hard on the premiere that I thought it only fair to mention that the next few episodes since then have been much better, still in the mold of the original X Files but acknowledging the series's (and characters') age. Any season that Go »
Rendering HistoryWe've started watching The Crown on Netflix -- every episode of which is excellent so far -- and remarking on how much the cast looks like the real people they portray. They're close, though biology prev Go »
It's Only Rock and RollErik, it's all good. I assumed from the start that you valued the suffering of the victims far above your own entertainment interests. I don't know (or want to know) anybody who wouldn't. Go »
TV JerksYeah, Kelly and I continue to be blown away by how good Uzo Aduba is in the part. Maybe I'm being unfair; Orange is the New Black is a considerably more complex show than Big Bang Theory, and comparing their characters is not apples to a Go »
Deck the Office HallsI like how Die Hard is fighting its way into the Christmas movie canon. I've had four separate conversations about it becoming a Christmas movie this month. Kelly swears it's not really a Christmas movie, which, duh, that's the joke. Go »
Treat Yo SelfI definitely fall to food, as well, but I've been working hard lately to change that and to find other self-care outlets. Aside from TV and calories, though, I haven't found anything that really sticks. Go »
Complaints Dept.Yes! Actively working towards a solution, or at least finding a healthier coping mechanism, is much better than complaining. Denise, you have plenty that you could choose to complain about, so I applaud your restraint. Go »
Attitude of GratitudeThis is such a great thread - this will sound arrogant, but I'll say this: Oddly, I'm pretty good at appreciating what other people have done and what the world has given me. I try to really show my love and appreciation for others and have been decent Go »
Neutral ZoningMost of the public concern about the end of net neutrality is that ISPs will charge more for certain access, like asking you to fork over more money for high-bandwidth websites like Netflix. If that's all it ever amounts to, I won't mind, because a much b Go »
Musical MementoI am rather partial to X Japan's "Art of Life." For starters, its epic, awesome, interesting, and very long (30+ish minutes) so it could easily be edited. Video Several years ago, I remember disc Go »
