    I finished Shadows and Bone season 1. It was pretty meh for me. Also just finished part 1 of the first season of The Nevers. It got good. I’m into it. Episode 6 takes a wild turn. You’ll think there was a programming mistake and you’re watching a totally different show at the start. I’ll eat my words about Joss Whedon being predictable, though l’m sure the writers had more to do with that.

    2021 Browns Depth Chart

    Perhaps his next team will capitalize on the Irish Karate Kid jokes.

    Tawny Kitaen wow

    For the longest time l thought the line was “like a drifter l was born to wear cologne,” which made perfect sense because drifters likely have intermittent access to things like showers and soap.

    I’ve watched a few episodes of the Nevers. Good concept for a show, and it’s got a couple things going for it that l generally dig (sci-fi/super power stuff and a period show set in 1800 something England), but it’s not really grabbing me yet. I think part of it is Joss Whedon’s stuff is pretty predictable. Also, with a mostly English/Irish cast l have a tough time easily following the dialogue sometimes. Accents are cool and all, but l find l have to pay attention a little harder to follow along and l’m not always wanting to do that with lazy tv watching. I have a similar issue with Shadow and Bone which l recently tried to watch.

    Browns Sign Another DT Vet

  6. Now that’s dedication to not ending a sentence with a preposition.
  7. I’m generally an “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” guy. Rodgers the last few years really comes off as having a sense of entitlement, maybe rightfully so, but l’d be mighty concerned about injecting all that entitlement into my favorite team.

    UDFAs

    And he’s my new favorite UDFA! Gotta root for the Miami guy. His highlight reel is underwhelming as well with an awful lot of plays showing how good he is in run support. But we need that right? Corners who can cover receivers are fine and all, but we need corners who can stuff the run too. Tough, smart and accountable. I’m rooting for you Manny!

    The Draft: Round One

    Probably, but his version of a happy dance was an awkward delight to see.

    If Berry likes him, it would be his prerogative.

    Oscar 2021

    It was definitely a deep film that artfully portrayed certain juxtapositions about aging, the concept of a home and how memories are kept in an environment where people are forced to adapt to wholesale changes on what’s important. There were at least 2 scenes where the main character was around people explaining the significance of their tattoos which contrasts to a couple scenes of her looking at old photographs. Old way vs new way of keeping memories. And the roads she would travel. I know there were scenes of Rt 66, Hwy 1, and Wall Drug as well as modern freeways. Another contrast to old and new. And her cyclical way of life where she starts the year as a seasonal employee at Amazon and then basically drives in a big circle throughout the year based on work or social functions, which contrasts to the traditional linear birth-work-retire-die concept of life.

    Oscar 2021

    The only one l’d seen from the OP was Judas and the Black Messiah. I generally like historically based period films, but l had a tough time staying engaged with that one. It was just ok for me. I just finished watching Nomadland. Kind of a slow moving where’s this going feel throughout much of it for me, but l was glad l watched it by the end. Thanks for the rec.

    Hall of Fame debate rages on

    https://dangerousminds.net/comments/q_are_we_not_men_the_origins_of_devos_theory_of_de-evolution Good read on Devo’s early influences. There was a series of wild religious pamphlets written in the 1920s that touted the theory of de-evolution (in response to the theory of evolution of course) which is where the name stems from and some of their earlier work is based off.

    Rise in Anti-Asian Violence

    This has been making the rounds in the news lately. I found an article where Fox Business reporter Susan Li was interviewed about it. She seems to have good insight on the matter. https://www.google.com/amp/s/thehill.com/homenews/media/544148-fox-business-reporter-offers-personal-view-on-anti-asian-attacks-someone-needs%3famp

    Rise in Anti-Asian Violence

    Like anything that involves steering a population it’s going to be a process. I’d say what’s happening is a good start. By all accounts these are peaceful rallies that raise awareness on what’s been going on and the desire for it to stop. Spread the message that these folks are part of us, they’re not as a group responsible for any of the ills of society, and they’re just trying to grind through life like everyone else.

    Rise in Anti-Asian Violence

    I know identifying what group is the worst offender of anything may seem like a solution, but it’s really not. All you’ve done is identify what group may need the message of solution more than others. The white supremacy angle wasn’t mentioned in the article l posted. It only identified the group who is seeking to lessen the hate in their direction, but didn’t go into details about which group or groups are primarily responsible for said hate. I did a quick google search on “stop asian hate rally” (without quotes) and then did a Control+F search for the word “white” and 5 of the top 8 didn’t even have the word. 2 used it to mention the Atlanta shooter was white, and only one used the term “white supremacy” or a variation of it. I’m not really getting that the “blame whitey” angle is the dominant message here. Sure, blaming whitey gets clicks. Who doesn’t like a little blame whitey talk? And l’m sure one could argue that it’s implied. But overtly stated? I’m not seeing a whole lot of that. And even if l did, like l said, it’s more of a deflection than a solution.

    Rise in Anti-Asian Violence

    I’m sure you’re on to something. Whether or not it leads back to claiming the virus didn’t come from Wuhan, l’m not sure if that’s it or not. I know it was mildly difficult trying to find an article on this that mentioned Trump as little as possible. Even all the Fox news articles were all “Pelosi claims this is all Trump’s fault...” This article was the best l could find in 20 minutes of perusing. The timing is curious though. I’m sure our Asian American citizens have had a tougher time for about a year now. I’m sure it’s a valid thing, and disappointing that anyone would have to bear any brunt of anything not of their doing. But the timing is curious. My theory was to draw attention away from the shit show at the border.
  21. It’s a great site right? Worth noting that those statistics go back to 1982, so almost 40 years worth of data. The case you listed in the op about the former republican senator paying Alex Rodriguez $40k to be on the ballot is not listed on the heritage site because it hasn’t gone to trial yet, but both he and ARod were arrested for it. The irony is you see more republicans pulling these stunts than democrats. In fact 2 of the latest 3 convictions on the heritage site were republicans who falsified their addresses to run for office. The silver lining in it all for me is seeing instance after instance on how seriously it’s being taken, and how small fries many of these infractions are, yet they still got caught. It makes you wonder what it would take and how many people would have to be involved to manufacture 7 million votes over a half dozen or more states to flip a presidential election, and it’s just not feasible.
  22. I just read up on this. Genius move from the republicans. They pay a guy named Alex Rodriguez (no, not that Alex Rodriguez, but Rodriguez was the same last name as the democratic candidate) to run as a 3rd party. Alex never actually bothered to campaign, but how many looks of shock do you think there were in ballot boxes that day in Florida? ARod’s running for senate? Hell yeah! Haha. But apparently that’s illegal. I thought it was crafty.
  23. If you’re truly interested in documented election fraud (or anyone here on the board is) here’s an excellent one stop shop. https://www.heritage.org/voterfraud-print/search To my knowledge that documents every, and l do mean every, election fraud conviction for the whole country going back to 1982. I’m looking to test that theory, so if you know of a conviction that isn’t documented there let me know. I spent an hour poking through a week or so ago. It’s interesting and informative.
  24. Bummed to see ‘Jobi go. Even more bummed to see him go to the Bengals. Poor guy. Pretty good payday for him though. Get it while you can.
  25. Ah, it appears that has something to do with profile information l didn’t bother filling out 7 years or so ago when l joined. I use a cell phone for brownsboarding and those things don’t show up on my end. Well now that that’s settled, just keep it to yourself why you wanted to know that.
