fuck game of thrones, seriously
Yeah, Game of Thrones is not for folks who don't want to see a bunch of stylized rape and murder and torture (what that says about those of us who watch it, uh, I decline to speculate). Your friend should have been like "hey are you down to see horrible brutal things as a putative form of entertainment?" before shoving that into your eyeballs, and been willing to take a no. Sorry you had that sprung on you. Neutral

I guess she wanted to share a deep universe she finds fascinating with me, which I really appreciate! And I kind of get the point that it's supposed to be a cold and ruthless world, although I have my reserves about that kind of fiction, but I guess I can't handle rape scenes very well at all Sad

What do you think about the idea that Rei is the actual main character in Eva, that the other pilots don't really add much and that assuming Shinji's point of view just leads to waifu crushes that detract from the actual storyline (which would be Rei becoming as independent as she can and telling Gendo to take his plans somewhere else, before having her newfound revolutionary leanings brutally cut off by Shinji?) I guess it sounds like it's fun for a laugh but actually it's a story I'd kinda like to write seriously...

I watched the first episode of AMC's Preacher

I should probably watch for Saint of Killers and just in case John Wayne or Jody show up, but I really shouldn't because it's doing that thing where the adaptation is failingggg Sad

After several otherwise dull hours at work pondering why, in the midst of Pokemon-crowded downtown, my workplace alone is lacking in specimens to catch during coffee breaks, I found out the answer that should have occurred to me all along: I'm not the only aspiring Pokemon trainer working there and the others are faster about catching them all than I am.

Until this morning, I thought this was an odd allusion to dating woes.

The Nightly Show is being cancelled. This week. They won't even get to take it to the elections.

So, John Turturro is actually shooting that Big Lebowski spin-off he's been wanting to make for years.

As much as I love The Big Lebowski, or more accurately because of how much I love the film, I'm really not enthused by this news. The film was a standalone piece, and I never wanted a sequel, prequel or spin-off.

Of course, someone will reply with "Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, uh, your opinion, man" in 5.....4......3......2......

Doctor says "Treatment is simple. Great clown Pagliacci is in town tonight. Go and see him. That should pick you up." Man bursts into tears. Says "But Doctor...I am Pagliacci!"

Good joke. Everybody laugh. Roll on snare drum. Curtains.

This is really not a good way to promote the new Power Rangers movie.

Okay, dear radio station, I do appreciate the Christmas music; but "Baby, It's Cold Outside" sounds suspiciously like a setup for date rape. I'm probably overreacting but the song just rubs me the wrong way.

The first time I even heard of that song, it was in the context of someone talking about the creepiness of it.

I enjoyed Fantastic Beasts, because it's always fun to spend time in the wizarding world. But some things made no sense.

Spoiler:
Particularly, in a world where children forced to repress their magic can have something horrific happen that invariably kills them by age 10 at the latest and probably kills others too, would the norm really be that magical children born into muggle families are left alone by the wizarding world and learn nothing of magic till age 11? Particularly, would you leave a child who you believe holds the key to saving the wizarding future to be raised till age 11 by his wizard-hating relatives who are determined to repress the magic in him?  Side-eye  

It's not like the latter two things are an obscure part of canon, or like that canon is itself obscure and unlikely to be known to the viewers of this movie.

Anime fanservice. Boobs that look like they were drawn by aliens that had seen a picture of a male human once, then read a text that explains the concept of breasts, after it had been run through Google translate a few times. That had possibly been dictated by a mime. And also, physics worked differently on their home planet, and they're not totally sure about this new Earth physics. But damnit, these plucky aliens are gonna do their best to draw the biggest and best titties those Earthlings have ever seen! How is it sexy if it in no way resembles actual boobs? Do these animators also find random balloons and sacks of flour and bowls of jello super-hot??

You always run into the occasional frustrating WoW player when doing any sort of group content, but never do I get as irritated as when I'm playing a healer. There's always a few tanks that pull too many enemies, constantly rush ahead out of healing range, don't keep up their defensive abilities, and/or fail to hold aggro on everything they pull. And whenever I try to call them out and ask them to do things a little differently, I get a passive-aggressive response as if I just said something really stupid, because of course THEY'RE not doing anything wrong, I'm just a bad healer for not keeping up with the massive damage they're taking or dying when they pull the entire room and half the mobs run to me as soon as I start to heal.
