Disney Buys Fox

What do you make of Disney buying most of Fox? For the curious, Go »

The Rise and Fall of Keaton Jones

Amen to that. Go »

Best Movies of 2017

That does make good sense, Scott. A one-person discussion isn't much of a discussion, is it? :) Go »

Football 2017

It's not just you guys. I've been playing FF for going on 20 years and I've made maybe 2 or 3 trades. Usually requests to trade are significantly lopsided or the benefits aren't there because of the plethora of free agents. Go »

What's on the Ol' Boob Tube?

I've seen three pretty good shows lately. The Great British Baking Show is very popular and doesn't need my endorsement. Everything that people say about it is true. Go »

Deck the Office Halls

Sorry about your Christmas exchange scott. Go »


If you could ask a deceased relative or ancestor one question, who would you choose and what would you ask? Go »

Treat Yo Self

I 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 »

Scott's Pet Peeve #1013

I'm really sorry to hear that. :-( Go »

Winter 2018

Awesome achievements, Russ --- all the way around! Congrats! :-) Go »


Russ, way to go on your 9th solo solution! That's quite an accomplishment!! I see more in your future! 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 Gratitude

This 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 »

Hit Me with Your Best Shot

Nice, count me in! I just used up all 38 artist rank points I had for cards. Go »

Neutral Zoning

Most 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 Memento

I 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 »

Stranger Things

Maybe that's fair, regarding "creeps." The boys were stalking her and ogling her, though. We in the audience know that they're innocent and good-natured, but she couldn't have known that yet. Go »

Replacement Axl

Super jelly, as the kids say. Go »

The Hardest Feat in Rock Block

The hardest feat just got a little easier: You can now convert artists, taking a duplicate of an artist from your collection and transforming it into a new artist that you haven't collected yet. It's expensive, c Go »

Funeratic Can Now Drink Legally

I have a feeling that Aaron would support that. Go »

Regrettable Inedible

Grits. My father-in-law is from Alabama and just loves grits. I've tried then on multiple occasions and just cannot figure out the appeal. Go »

The Bird's the Word

The next tournament is programmed and ready to play, but I'm saving it for December 2 so that we can get back on a seasonal schedule similar to the goo game. I'd really like to see us play a small tournament like this every season, as long as we have enou Go »

Trouble the Water

Meh, I've tried it a few times. I miss the sweet flavor of soda. I've tried adding Mio and other sweeteners to water too, and I can never seem to get the mix quite right; it's either too sweet or not sweet enough, and doesn't taste right. Go »

Happy Birthday, Chris!

Thanks Samir! it was a good one. Hope all is well with you Go »

Why Did You Watch Iron Fist and Why Did I?

[hidden by author request] Go »

Star Trek: Discovery

The third episode is even stronger than the first two. This is just the shot in the arm that the stodgy old Trek franchise needed. It feels as refreshing as DS9 did once upon a time, and for similar reasons. Go »

Erik, You Monster!

Thanks Russ and LaVonne Go »

Happy Birthday Kelly

She'll appreciate this. :-) She's currently driving home from Mattoon, Illinois after a week visiting family and friends. Escaping the power outage after the hurricane was just an added bonus. Go »

Scott's Pet Peeve #1753

As long as we're talking about pet peeves related to board games, here's another one of mine: People who don't provide any context when introducing a game to first-time players. I sat down recently to play a game I knew well with some first-timers. The Go »

One Pence None the Richer

I would like to clarify that I'm not criticizing Trump for making that deal with Pelosi and Schumer. I wish more politicians would do the right thing when it conflicts with their party and politics, and even if I doubt that Trump did this for the right re Go »

Fall Back

Yeah, I like pumpkin pie fine, so I'm inclined to have maybe one pumpkin spice treat in the fall, like a single pumpkin spice milkshake or something. But I don't need pumpkin spice cookies, candy, donuts, crackers, coffee, wine, and on and on. To paraphra Go »


I'm glad you're back up and running, and even more-so glad that you both made it through the storm relatively unscathed. Go »

Parting with Partisanism

Fair enough. I think part of the problem, though, is that I still don't know any of the "good" Trump supporters. They might exist in my world, but they're sure staying silent. Go »

People Who Look Like People

Ha, I can see that resemblance. I heard that Colleen Wing's student in Iron Fist (this guy) was also in Luke Cage, and I thought he was the guy selling DVDs. But no, look Go »

In the Shadow of the Moon

We might just do that! Go »

The Defenders

The Hand are lousy villains in general. I have heard that they were so unpopular in the eighties that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was created to parodize them, and that sounds about right. In Daredevil's second season, the Hand were a n Go »


I haven't tried it, but I am very interested. I don't see how this is at all a sustainable business model, though. Go »

A Confederacy of Dunces

Scott: I agree, and if we were reimagining, say, the Iraq or Afghanistan wars, I'd feel differently. But relitigating the Civil War is only interesting if we present it in a new way. It's possible that this one will do it, but I'm shocked that that new Go »

Nom de Whom

Yeah, last names can be a pain like that. It must be hard to be a famous professional actress who uses her married name in private, because how do you keep correcting people to use your married name when you're obviously famous as your maiden name? I'm Go »

Double Jeopardy

One might argue that forcing him through a second round in the electric chair could constitute cruel and unusual punishment, and would therefore be unconstitutional, if one didn't already consider the first round in the chair cruel and unusual in and of i Go »

The Veracity of Political Correctness

It is not so much being 'allowed' as it is about a person being held accountable for what they said. When we were in school, people in general started to think it was pretty horrible to be that way towards others. Like you mentioned -in the 90's. Go »

Greendale Alumni Association

Well then Erik, I wouldn't read further until you see more! I'm not going to reveal specific plot details, but my comments will probably influence your enjoyment all the same. I have mixed feelings, because it was such a mixed show. Go »

Cinematic Chefs

JJ Abrams serves reheated leftovers from Steven Spielberg's restaurant, kept warm under a blindingly white heat lamp. Go »

Longest Discussions

These are Tragic Comedy's all-time longest discussions.

Gay Marriage

I think we've mentioned it in passing, but I couldn't find an official thread here about gay marriage. There are a lot of changes going on right now in legislature. Go »

Yankees Win! Theeeeee Yankees Win!

Read the subject. That is all. Go »

Rock Block

I'm pleased to introduce the newest game on, Rock Block. Go »

Interesting Videos.....Or Whatever

Thought I would start a thread to post interesting videos in. Here's a pretty neat video. Go »

Election Day

Let's begin. Go »


It's been three weeks since Rock Block launched, and the early rush of mass participation has given way to a few regulars playing constantly. To a large degree that's normal and expected, but to the degree it doesn't have to be that way, I'd like to do so Go »

Current Goo

Does the current goo have all the leaders stumped? Can I declare victory now? Go »

Goo: Towers

Recently, I've been talking about taking the goo game in a different direction. That plan goes into effect tonight, with the start of Round XLI in five hours. Go »

Round XXX Tournament

We will begin in just five days. Here is the line-up for Friday, July 27th: Mike Eberhart vs. Go »

"Shall We Play a Game?"

Time for a meme game (thanks Gina). 1. Go »
