Admissions of Guilt

Sadly, the precedent has been established. Paying for better test scores - who's to say that won't or didn't occur again. They're permanently stained with suspicion. Go »

Winter 2019

Thanks all. :) I realize that this thank you is a month late in coming. I have been a member of this site for longer than any other site or community that I've associated with. Go »

What Makes a Movie?

I love Spielberg but this is dumb. Fake qualifying runs were common in the business for years. There were arthouse movies that had fake qualifying runs because they knew their movies couldn’t work in theaters. Go »


Thanks, Guys! Appreciate the nice comments --- I will have to say, though, the cats certainly did their part!! Every season of this game is fun, so let's get ready! Go »

Driving Mr. Green

I haven't seen Green Book, so I can't say from my own experience. I will see it someday, regardless of the controversy. Just because the movie is problematic and clueless in its choices about race does not mean that it is entirely without merit. Go »

Harry Potter and the Definitive Ending

Also: I'm well aware that this is all easy for me to say because I'm not a particular fan of Harry Potter. The movies and theme parks were fun, but I don't follow the series closely and I have no interest in any further expansions. If it was a series that Go »

Oscars 2019

I had not noticed that diversity in Best Director, but you're right; good point. And that's good and healthy for the industry, I think. Part of the reason that Green Book flew under the radar for Best Picture had to be the lack of a correspond Go »

Hemming History

For what it's worth, I didn't have a problem with you saying that. He deserves scorn for owning slaves and for raping them. But he also deserves some degree of reverence for his contributions to modern democracy. Go »

Groundhog Day

Yeah, I can't imagine a day so "perfect" that I wouldn't eventually get tired of the repetition. But if I was not aware of the repetition, and I was enjoying the day anew each time, I can think of a number of candidates, from happy times in my youth to my Go »

ICE Blocks

All Access? Pass

Star Trek TOS and Twilght Zone - I'm in! Those happen to be two series I've gotten Lauren hooked on. Go »

Things I Do Not Understand After Trying to Eat Light at a Mexican Restaurant Tonight

I think most Americans DON'T eat 2000 calories a day, judging from the obesity epidemic in this country. :-( The waitress was not busy. Several times I saw her across the room doing what looked like idle chatting with other staff, playing with her fing Go »

Last Rights

Good! I'm not the only one who thinks that's crazy. :-) I guess the rationale is that multiple people might want the last piece, so if anyone must be deprived of it, at least we're all equally deprived of it? Go »

What's on the Ol' Boob Tube?

After watching the first season, I am of mixed opinion about Chef's Table. The show looks absolutely stunning, and the music is often exquisite as well. But the show is ultimately only as Go »

Shutting Down a Shutdown

The Sopranos at 20

You nailed it, Samir. What a supporting cast! Lorraine Bracco, Frank Vincent, and John Heard all shone. Go »

The Best Movies of 2018

We saw the new Mary Poppins today. It was endearing and an absolute joy. Go »

Flagged for Discussion

Televised poker I get. Anyone can play it. You don't have to be in great shape; you just need to know the rules and have a starting bankroll. Go »

Football 2018

Fun and addictive. Thanks to all the players. See you next season! Go »

Shoot to Thrill

Chris, I thought if I took you out, that you'd take me out right away, so I was hoping to lay low and watch everyone else take each other out and then pounce! Didn't work. Oh well, third is probably better than I deserved! Go »

Chocolate Caption Contest

Fall 2018

Thanks, guys, for the nice comments! I'm thrilled to have a second victory! It was a tight race to the end and, frankly, Eric, I thought the win was yours, particularly since I was current on answers and you still had six to play. Go »


Excellent! Go »

Be Ye Not So Stupid

Walking Out

No I haven't cause every movie I went to I like. But the prices these days to see a movie is high I think. Go »


Brian Michael Bendis wrote a nice tribute to him. Go »

How Now Brown, Wow?

I wasn't a fan of the original run, so I haven't really felt the urge to get in on the relaunch. Go »

Can You Tell Me How to Get to Therapy

Yes, let's toss in the Muppets too. Animal has severe ADHD. Kelly pointed out that the Swedish chef suffers from some kind of word salad disorder. Go »

Star Swap

Bryce Dallas Howard was seared into my mind as a distinct individual when I watched the DVD extras for The Village and discovered her unbearably pretentious and self-interested video diaries Go »

Chris Lemler: Another Year Older, Another Year Wiser

It was a very good birthday. Got hockey tickets for the blues game November 1. Go »

Samir Day

Thanks for the birthday wishes! Go »

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 »
