  1. If it is not the 80's I do not trust the mullet. People who live in the past care little for the present and even less for the future. Hey Abraham, stop taking orders from a dick. Follow Glen. I'm guessing he's long time military because he appears to seek out the top of the known hierarchy to get his orders from. He didn't want to lose the civi's either. Protect and preserve human life. Looking forward to getting to know these newbs Rick...running around upstairs...giving me twelve heart attacks. Him and that dude eye fuckin each other as the guy was getting choked out. That was some good suspenseful shit. So glad he got to Michonne and Carl and they gtfo. Are these guys the group thats going around beheading people or are these guys the group the head hunters are after? I'm not asking! I wanna know when they tell me but its so much fun to ponder. Mwahahaha Carl is so crushed over Judith. Michonne loved her too. Talking with Carl about her child was grief therapy for both of them and it brought them closer together. I don't think she is his mom's replacement, more like the cool aunt, but they are really becoming family. I can't wait for them to see Judith alive. I'll cry and it will be so worth it Glen will find Maggie.
  2. I had this in my Netflix cue forever, a week or so ago I put it on "in the background" when I was doing crap online and ...it sucked me in, quick. Snow White thieving, fighting and stabbing mo fos? I'm all in. The show is an awesome twist on all old fairytales. Very creative, it gives such depth to characters we thought we knew all our lives. I'm loving the Rumpelstiltskin and Regina stuff The Grumpy back story ep was a fav. We're in season 2, probably gonna have to check out Once upon a time in Wonderland after we get caught up with this.
  3. omfg have a tissue handy for mid season fin the pure shit that came out of Pan's mouth to Rumple... if I coulda reached through the tv and stabbed a motherfucker....
  4. I do want to read it!!!!! but I've been forcing myself to stay away until the show is a little further along so I can read the stuff slowly so it doesn't catch up to the show. I want to be able to enjoy both tellings of the story without my "the book was better!" getting in the way lol. When visual media is done right you can extrapolate volumes of information in one conversation. Body language, tone, setting etc. Art by its very nature is open to interpretation. I like that they have deliberately done things different between tv show and graphic novel. When a Stephen King book gets movied up he usually screws w the ending somehow so it is different then the written piece. When you switch mediums with a story the delivery of some things has to change. You can't read a chapter of back story, you have to do a flashback or have the characters talk about it to deliver that information to the audience. Story format and script format are miles apart. The point is telling a good story worthy of being shared and retold indefinitely. BSG pulled off the whole post apocalypse story brilliantly in mutherfuckin space. They changed some things from the original, the big one was making Starbuck a woman. It worked amazing. There was great balance in the show; Bill commanded the military, Laura the citizens. Guias is pushed to greatness by Caprica 6.Lee outranks Kara but she runs those pilots and he leaves to go into politics.Character growth and relationships on the show was unlike anything I'd ever seen on tv. Series ended well, we got closure and cried a lot. As the show went on a bigger budget gave us awesome battle scenes. Bear McCreary did all the music for BSG and is also doing TWD, SHIELD etc.
  5. There are very few television series that I would call art. Ron Moore's Battlestar Galactica and The Walking Dead are art. With this medium the writing, directing, acting all have to be the tip of the top. I look at each episode, season then series over all. It has to be a thought provoking and emotionally impacting story, the delivery has to be amazing. Not an easy thing to do on the small screen. I think its awesome they open w Michonne. You see her transition in the ep from someone willing to blend in w the dead to someone who wants to live w people. Her flashback dream sequence was wicked, her first pets, her child, the beginning of the reasons she traveled alone for so long.Flashbacks and conversations are the only way we're going to get back story. She was so different before the zombie plague. We now know she cried holding Judith because she is mourning her own child. Seeing her walker double made her realize that even if being with the living can be painful its better then being dead emotionally. After slaughtering the herd she goes right back to Rick's tracks and follows them to Carl who she has bonded with. She is so frigin happy to see the kid alive (and I bet she has his shoe) I imagine Rick saw Michonne w the shoe through the peek hole. When he turns and flops on the couch with that genuine happy amused smile!!! OMG haven't seen that since he found Laurie and Carl... When Carl yells at his unconscious father... its all shit I woulda said to Rick myself. He had become useless and was dragging others down with him. If he had killed the gov at the start Hershel Andrea Milton Judith (?) could still be alive. He was weak when it came to dealing with external threats. He was a fucking asshole when it came to issues inside the prison. He was a douchenado to Michonne when they first met, she has saved him and his kid repeatedly. She's the only one that went looking for the gov after the shit went down at the prison. And then there is Carol. He was intimidated by her ability to adapt, teach, lead the group and do the hard things alone if necessary (from getting water to burning infected bodies). She found her bravery and Rick lost his so he took his crap out on her. Sending her away was a rape/death sentence, an utterly malicious move he tried to write off as protecting her from Tyreese. The ultimate bullshit was inviting the gov in after kicking Carol out. Rick is broken and has been since he killed Shane.
  6. I grew up in the country 3 miles from the lake. No video games no internet. I never even owned a computer until my kids were 3 and 5. I didn't get a cell until after I broke down w the car one night on the gorge road (scary). In my teens I worked on a farm where the most tech savvy thing I did was drive tractor. After that I worked retail at the time everything was transitioning to bar code scanners. I stuck with retail until it got to the point where I needed to be home w my kids full time, I was working to pay a baby sitter. It wasn't until my youngest started school that I actually had time to do something on the computer. I met Sledgers that year . Early on I realized the best part of the net was the free education I get from the fucking thing. Before internet I read a lot of books. With internet I spend most of my reading time studying the topics of internist to me. Facebook is convenient for communicating sometimes, but I use my wall like the corporate tool it is and share things like animals that need rescue, politics, new science etc. Personal stuff stays in private messages. I have no interest in broadcasting what I cooked for dinner or what I think of what so and so did. Not into the gossipy celeb bullshittery. I've made friends with other activists via fb and its hella convenient for sharing articles. My news feed is mostly news. I use it to get all the crap I wanna look at in one place. Video games... well I OCD that shit. I find a game I like and I will master that motherfucker. I can multi task while playing. Boss fight in the middle of cooking dinner no problemo. My hands have some playstation ninja muscle memory thing going on. I read on my phone a lot cuz I'm outside with chu. Endless streaming education, love it. I have read a novel on my phone; Stephen King's Cell of course. Texting is usually how I talk to my kids. I send my mom and his cute chu pics. As far as kids go, they're not just expensive they're time consuming. Evey time I go to a fucking Walmart I encounter parents not parenting and their out of control kid results climbing in the frozen food. Fuck that shit dude I get right away from that. If you're going to have kids you have to do the time or you'll create assholes the rest of us have to deal with. You have to pour your time into a kid. Toilet training a kid can take months. A cat will learn to shit in the box within two weeks.... I'm very pro furbaby. Marriage is involving the state in your personal life, a license is cheap compared to the cost of a divorce which pretty much benefits lawyers only.The benefits of marriage should out weigh the the consequence of being legally bound to the other person or don't bother. Been married and divorced and with the old man for thirteen years not getting married no need.

  8. rule # 1 TURN ON THE FUCKING LIGHTS WHEN YOU WALK INTO A ROOM!!!! Every year thousands of terrible characters die because they didn't see the boogie man coming...... Seriously, when you walk into a room the frigin light switch is usually right next to the door. rule #2 EVERYTHING IS A WEAPON! Pots and pans can smash skulls, shovels can decapitate, bleach in the eyes will blind etc. Pick up the fucking chair and beat a motherfucker with it. rule #3 BAIT Someone in the group you don't like? Otis his ass. Hobble him and leave him for the killer while you make your escape. Repeat as necessary until all the assholes are gone rule #4 EYES IN THE BACK OF YOUR HEAD Try to find at least 1 competent person to have your back and cooperate for mutual survival All of those stupid Would you survive a horror movie? quiz things... I live to the end
  9. I'll always remember when the doctor was me .... gonna miss Matt but looking forward to new adventures with Peter
  10. beautiful babies!
  11. you both look happy lol
  12. yes the big yard still needs mowing
  13. Is that your beautiful dog? I've had the same landlord since 2001 in this house.....property have gone up twice and school taxes have gone up 3 times I think now. My rent has gone up 3 times to compensate. Taxes here are beastly they make you PAY to live here Both of my kids are out of school so we don't need to stay in this district just this area because I have family with health issues here. I have so many plants that are too big to take with me when we move...
  14. AC is like the zombie virus, we are all infected and (re)turn eventually
  15. X2 paled in comparison to X 12 wasn't fantastic but I did like the battle system 13, fuck yeah, good game. Good story, characters. A lot of room to customize characters abilities. Again a sequel that was not as good as the first. I am looking forward to Lightning Returns because she makes the godamn game. Both X and 13 have a very strong cast of characters. The sequels boot all but one or two of the cast. Yuna and Rikku are dumbed down and Pain isn't a strong enough character to make up for the loss of others. Serah is a weak character and though Noel is a strong character he isn't enough to carry the story. Mog is a stronger character then Serah. Now if only Lightning played Blitzball....
  16. Superman Man of Steel movie = waste of my time. It sucked out loud

      The plot wasn't good, but the fighting was good for me. :\

    2. Eppy

      it was a pretty movie =D

      the special effects wewre good, but the delivery of the story was slow torture to watch. Any movie that begins with the glorification of the extreme pain the disposable woman is in to birth the male hero is shit

  17. Start with the reboot The 9th Doctor Christopher Eccleston . He was the Dr for a season before we got David who stuck around a few seasons and then Matt. Don't forget to watch the specials.
  18. never watched the show, not interested. i have redneck friends that are not bigot christholes. I don't give 2shits about the "controversy" I expect bad behavior and backwards thinking from religitards
  19. can you say pissed off?
  20. The prison doesn't work because nobody thought to re-enforce the fence until it was too late. I would have used trucks, trailers, RV's etc parked all along the inner fence so no amount of pushing would bend it over nor could a truck just drive right through. Its stupid and dangerous to raise livestock where you live and get your water. Apparently nobody studied the previous plagues that knocked human numbers down; bird and swine flu hello? How long have they been at the prison and nobody thought to go grab solar panels and batteries so they could have some electricity? A phone book will tell you where everything you need is.....
  21. TWD Govonor episodes = meh

  22. Sent this to the anchor woman ... I'm writing to address the comments you made on air while discussing the 15 and 16 year old boys who videotaped their female classmates changing their clothes. You said something along the lines of they're curious and wanted a peek. Please research about what age sexual curiosity begins because it is not 15. Please research at what age boys begin looking at pornography because again, it is not 15. It is important for you to know as a citizen, as a reporter and as a mother. We need to deal in truths so we can deal with the problem in the most effective ways. Maybe you should do a story about teens and porn? It is on parents to let their children know that porn is every bit fantasy as The Hobbit. It is everywhere and children are exposed to it younger and younger. It can have negative consequences on a developing mind to dehumanize and devalue an entire gender. It's how we end up with videos like Stubenville. You also speculated that maybe they didn't know they were committing a crime. Maybe they didn't, but I highly doubt it. With all the press about assaults being filmed lately if they didn't know they at least suspected. It's always a bad move to excuse the the perp for one reason or another even more so when it comes it comes to cases like this. When we excuse we are perpetuating rape culture and that is not okay. It is not good for our children. You are in such a great position to be a voice for survivors and families. Parents need to look at the complexities of the social world our children are growing up in. They need to know how to handle it. They need information and who better to give that to them then you? Drugged, raped and left in the front yard needs to stop. We need to come together to make that happen. Thank you for your time
  23. Researchers found 2,368 unique species of bacteria after swabbing just 60 belly buttons, according to a report in The Atlantic. Of these, 1,458 may have been completely new to science. In this same study, one man's belly button was found to be home to bacteria previously known to exist only in the soil of Japan. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/11/08/personal-hygiene-facts_n_4217839.html?ncid=edlinkusaolp00000009

      sustain and replenish the good bacteria in our bodies.

      http://www.abc.net.au/news/2007-10-10/scientists-discover-true-function-of-appendix-organ/693946

      Its very interesting because some of these rare and completely unique species of bacteria could very well be another form of evolution. We are born with bacteria passed on by our parents and the bacteria we grow on and in our bodies are just as unique to ourselves as our own white blood cells and antibodies.

      BAH My belly button probably houses things that haven't been around for centuries! Dino DNA yo!

      If someone swabbed your belly button with a q-tip, the cotton would dissolve. :P

  24. Think of religions like cake. On the outside it looks so appealing that you just have to have a piece. The frosting and piping and elaborate decorations are the things that particular religion shows off to the world. Beautiful architecture, holidays, ceremonies and messages of love and peace. Some people window shop before they pick a cake, but most eat their parent's cake during childhood and get used to eating that particular cake and are satisfied with it. You didn't bake the cake so you aren't going to know what ingredients went into the cake unless you look at the recipe. Some people need to know what they're eating because some things are toxic to them, some people want to know what they're eating so they can choose what goes in their body, some people don't care what the cake is made of. The recipe for your religion cake is the religions holy text and history. Some people look at the recipe and reject the cake, some people decide to only lick the frosting, and some people shovel the cake in their face anyway. The health nut who looks at the recipes and concludes All cake is full of seriously bad shit! is the anti-theist. The frosting lickers are your moderates. They want the pretty and the sweet, they deliberately fill up on frosting before they get to the cake so they eat less of it. They don't like all the ingredients so they're selective about the bites they take. The one shoveling it in like Goku at a buffet is your fundamentalist. They know their cake has some hard core shit in it, but its the best and everyone should eat it! The problem with cake is it has the potential to make you sick. Someone with a peanut/genocide allergy isn't going to dive into that cake. Over eating or excessive amounts of cake over time can have negative health consequences. It could lead to diabetes/ a defective set of morals.

      That is f*cking amazing. We could be in a galaxy like star wars and never know it. O_O

      I think our galaxy would be more like Mass Effect. :P This is pretty awesome considering a few days ago we only knew of one that was circling way too close to its sun.
