Music, Movies, Tv and Books / Dark Universe

Anyone excited for this?  I wasn't blown away by the Mummy trailer but I kinda dig bringing the universe back if for no other reason than because shared universes are all the rage right now and they did it first.

General Chat / Haircuts - Talking or No Talking?

When you get a haircut and the barber talks to you, are you cool with it or would you rather just relax quietly?  For me, I like a quiet haircut for some reason.

Early tweets and reactions seem positive.  Maybe this will be the movie that gives the DCCU some respect.

The rift within the Democratic Party was on full display at the California Democratic Party Convention on May 19 in Sacramento, California. Progressives joined members of National Nurses United, protesting the Democratic Party establishment’s refusal to support single payer healthcare system. Rather than follow through with Democratic rhetoric that healthcare is a human right, establishment Democrats have responded to voters by scolding and attacking them.

During the first day of the convention, California Democratic Party chair John Burton yelled at protesting nurses to “shut the f*ck up and go outside.” Burton condescendingly told the protesters, “There’s [sic] some people who have been fighting for that issue before you guys were born.”

The California Democratic establishment, like the national party leadership, has favored corporate and wealthy donors, undermining pushes for a single payer healthcare system that would provide Americans with healthcare—not just health insurance. Eric Bauman, the California Democratic Party vice chair and candidate to succeed Burton as the Party’s chair, received $12,500 a month from the pharmaceutical industry to fight proposition 61, which would “cap the price that any state agency or care program could spend on prescription drugs at what the federal Department of Veterans Affairs pays.” Bauman received these payments while earning a six-figure salary as an adviser to California Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon. Proposition 61 failed to pass in November 2016 after the pharmaceutical industry spent millions of dollars opposing it.
During a rally at the state capitol, National Nurses United Director RoseAnn Demoro told supporters not to wait for establishment Democrats to take the lead on healthcare and making medicare for all a reality. “They cannot be in denial anymore that this is a movement that can primary them.”

DNC Chair Tom Perez spoke at the California Democratic Party Convention, offering the same meaningless rhetoric and platitudes that have incited boos, protests, and criticisms of his ability to lead. “We make sure that healthcare is a right for everyone,” Perez claimed. “And not a privilege for a few.”
Despite his claim, Perez and the Democratic Party leadership refuse to support Medicare for All, insisting Obamacare just needs a few improvements. Obamacare does not ensure healthcare as a right, but rather serves to maximize benefits to the pharmaceutical and health industries. Perez claims the Democratic Party supports providing healthcare to all Americans, but is unwilling to support the policies that will actually do so. After pandering to protesters on the issue and jokingly comparing their presence to infighting at Thanksgiving dinner—a stark change from his constant affirmations that the party is united—Perez reverted to the Democratic go-to in lieu of championing stances on actual issues.

“We have a president …. I don’t know who it is, Putin, or Trump,” Perez said to an uninspired crowd. “They’re in a bromance. This is really weird.” On May 20, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, who also doesn’t support single payer healthcare, focused her speech at the California Democratic Party Convention on Russia as well.

In contrast, at a rally for Bernie Sanders supporters at the State Convention hosted by the National Nurses United on May 19, former Ohio State Senator Nina Turner explained the need for the Democratic Party to address the issues impacting working, middle class, and low income Americans. “We need to deal with income inequality, racial justice, but Dems only want to talk about Russia!” she said. “We need a party that stands up for people & doesn’t fake it. In the words of Janet Jackson ‘What have you done for me lately?'”

Music, Movies, Tv and Books / Top Tarantino Movies Ranked

I would've swapped Kill Bill Vol 1 and 2 around as I still consider the first to be better.  And I might be alone here but I consider Jackie Brown to be kind of boring.  I would put Inglorious Basterds in that spot.  That was a movie that really stayed with me long after watching it.  Almost every scene was memorable.

ICT / Larry David vs George Costanza
« on: May 18, 2017, 03:59:24 AM »
We're talking about sitcoms right now, so here's the situation.  Larry and George are at the same party doing the usual: trying to pick up women, trying to avoid talking to people, and still trying not to be too socially awkward.  We all know one of them will fuck up royally and piss off everyone in the room eventually.  The question is, who fucks up first?

General Chat / DNC pretty much admits its corruption in court
« on: May 10, 2017, 03:53:29 AM »

So in court, their lawyers pretty much went with the defense, "Yes, we rigged the primaries, but we could have done what we did in the old days and rigged the primaries while smoking cigars.  That would be worse, right?".
