I worry that the Thoughts-n-Prayers didn't have enough time to kick in before they found another solution.

Showcase of the Immortals / Fastlane... a REALLY hard PPV to judge.
« on: March 11, 2019, 11:41:10 AM »
So did anyone else catch Fastlane?

The show was weird to me because there were so many GREAT matches, but... I just didn't care about anything going on. The build was so poor that I just had no engagement. Even with the amazing march quality, I could barely pay attention and stay off my phone.

Shane's heel turn, while everyone knew it was coming, made NO sense because there was no set up to it. He just attacked Miz for no reason, essentially.

General Comic Discussion / I offended Dan Slott!

He replied in the comments.

TL;DR version, I spend an inordinate amount of time reviewing a book Dan Slott did not write by bitching about Dan Slott having turned Black Cat heel a few years ago because that move always seemed WILDLY out of character for me. He replied in the comments, and was actually pretty cordial. And then I sucked up in return because I am both polite AND spineless (while also standing by my original assessment).

General Chat / Martin Luther... "Koon"?

Jeremy Kappell, a weatherman fired for apparently using a racial slur on air, says it was an honest mistake — and Al Roker is in his corner.

The chief meteorologist at NBC affiliate WHEC in Rochester, New York, was fired after he uttered the word [coon], which has been used as a racial slur against black people, while referring to a park named after the civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr.

In an interview with the Today show Tuesday, Kappell said he tripped over his words, accidentally combining “king” and “junior.”

“Two words mashed together incorrectly. What I said wasn’t even a word, it was a sound — people, I believe, read into that,” he said.

There's more, plus a video of the incident.

That's pretty fucking retarded, the dude got fired over stumbling over his words.

So... is this something? Or nothing?

Curious about this topic because for this upcoming week's episode of my podcast, we read and review DC's New Frontier by Darwyn Cooke. And I REALLY didn't think it was a particularly good book. My buddy started shooting back a list of awards it has won in rebuttal, but I don't know... I thought it was shit.

Any celebrated works that you thought were not as good as their praise?

I can't believe this is such a thing that still has so much dedication and momentum. I can't browse Twitter at all without running across these people anymore (probably my fault for following it into a rabbit hole one day, and now my Twitter algorithm thinks I want more).

Like, I didn't enjoy Aquaman, but I can kind of see why others are happy with it. It's at least a huge step forward from where the DCEU came from. But Man of Steel and Batman Vs Superman are objectively garbage-ass films. And there are people that think JLA would be better if Snyder was MORE involved? What reality are these people living in?

They are going to turn EVERY natural babyface on the roster heel instead.

Daniel Bryan as a heel? Seriously? With his feud with Miz feeling not-yet-complete?

I expect D-Bry as a heel will work a lot like Becky as a heel; there's no way he gets booed.

Debate / White House putting out doctored videos to "prove" their points
« on: November 08, 2018, 12:22:31 PM »
This is an out branch of the Midterm topics and Trump's bizarre press conference after the elections. But after suspending the credentials of Jim Acosta for "assaulting" an intern, which EVERYONE who saw it knows he did not do, the WH released an InfoWars-created remix of the event that makes it look like he did assault her.

What a world.

I'm almost convinced they were just trolling Saudi Arabia with that shit.

DC Drones / Who are your Top Ten Batman rogues?
« on: September 11, 2018, 08:35:01 AM »
In our episode we released today (link here for folks that have signatures turned off: https://gotstratosphere.com/2018/09/11/show-9-11-18-my-blank-pages/ ), we had our rookie comic fan rank his, so it got me thinking who some of you seasoned vets would put where.

Who ya got?
