Oh, it gets worse, he supports "biblical justice.".

The guy Drumpf picked, Whitaker (whose appointment may not be kosher, I'm not quite sure) wrote an op-ed saying that the Mueller investigation should be terminated or starved for funds.  First, that eventuality HAS to have been prepared for.  Second, Whitaker should have to recuse himself (not that I think he will) because of a conflict of interest with the Mueller investigation, he chaired a campaign for one of the witnesses in the investigation, a guy named Sam Clovis.

Also, I didn't think about this, but now that Sessions is out, he could be called as a witness.  Obstruction is one of the big charges facing Drumpf and now he could be called in to provide evidence, which he most likely has.

Finally getting into this.  I'm liking it.  Obviously, I can't help but make comparisons to Battlestar Galactica since the whole "Reconstruction of the government" was a big thing in that series as well.

It's really funny to see Kiefer Sutherland to play a more soft-spoken type of character than Jack Bauer... I had forgotten how soothing his voice is, I could listen to him pontificate.

Can I also say that I think that the premise is kind of genius, not just as a gripping conceit, but also explains the scope of the show.  Obviously it doesn't have the budget and resources of The West Wing or House Of Cards, it can't have those big casts or even as many sets, but having it just be those survivors makes it work.  Of course there's only, like, four people on staff that speak, of course!

Season 2 dropped (Netflix picked it up because it did well overseas) and I'm curious to see how the show changes... I somehow doubt that they dropped insane piles of cash on it, but I imagine the long form storytelling changed.

A realistic take on the T-85 X-Wing.

And Gary Oldman!  And Mark Strong!

I know it's not an upcoming CGI movie b/c they don't make those kinds of movies.  Funnily enough, I just rewatched Simone, that old Andrew Niccol movie where Al Pacino somehow makes a convincing CGI woman despite the fact it's only 2001 and in hindsight it's hilarious not that anyone thinks she's real or falls in love with her, but that anyone gives a ****.  We have that technology now and use it all the time and the general consensus is "...whatever."

A Rowan Atkinson bit I've never seen before.  Which for me is really saying something.

This is interesting insofar as it's an actual licensed fanfilm, with the actual actors from Power Rangers in it... a far cry from the Joseph Kahn one we saw ages ago.

Sneak peek at the first episode of Doctor Who.  Didn't want to watch but I couldn't resist.  And she's so adorable!  As most doctors are.

Weezer- Africa (Official Music Video)


So many levels of meta going on here.  They're covering a song by another band, with a video recreating one of their own music videos, with another singer impersonating their lead singer.  I love that.

Another one from Oats, and the return of Sharlto Copley as God.

Little documentary about the flying cab from BTTF II with a look at all the insane little details that went into there.  The dashboard, the graphics... I can't believe they went into THIS much detail for things even *I* never noticed!


I have seen BTTF2 so many times and NEVER saw the Citroen wheels flip, I didn't think they bothered.  Mind blown!
