@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (26 May 2019 - 07:12 PM)

Pleasant news.

@  Nevermore : (26 May 2019 - 04:06 PM)

Also, the rising stars are the Greens, especially in Germany.

@  Nevermore : (26 May 2019 - 04:06 PM)

Also, a surprising number of voters showed up to the polls, all across the EU. Which is a good sign.

@  Nevermore : (26 May 2019 - 04:05 PM)

Soooo. Another election day is over. Less stressful than the last one, at least.

@  Nevermore : (25 May 2019 - 05:09 PM)

Oooookay, Babylon Berlin. That's gotta be Plot Convenient News Urgent Edition or something.

@  wonko the sane? : (25 May 2019 - 12:03 PM)

I had no idea the beeb was renting out the dr.who writting staff to hollywood.

@  TM2-Megatron : (25 May 2019 - 11:50 AM)

A poodle, some clouds, and a giant drop of water

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 May 2019 - 05:53 AM)

Was that the one where he fights gamma mutant poodles?

@  unluckiness : (25 May 2019 - 03:14 AM)

The CG in that movie was fantastic. Shame Donkey and Fiona were written out of the movie though.

@  TM2-Megatron : (25 May 2019 - 01:20 AM)

Don't worry, though. Ang Lee's Hulk has made it, so if physical media goes this year we can all die happy

@  TM2-Megatron : (25 May 2019 - 01:12 AM)

It's not on 4K yet. Sure would be nice, though

@  Pennpenn : (25 May 2019 - 12:56 AM)

Probably, when I remember to.

@  Telly : (24 May 2019 - 11:11 PM)

you should buy it on bluray or 4k

@  Pennpenn : (24 May 2019 - 09:56 PM)

It's still not up on netflix. Bah!

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 May 2019 - 03:26 PM)

We named the dog "Indiana".

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 May 2019 - 03:25 PM)

Happy 30 years to Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade!

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 May 2019 - 01:35 PM)

Truly they are the compleat package.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 May 2019 - 03:40 AM)

Phyrexians are the bishie-est.

@  unluckiness : (24 May 2019 - 12:29 AM)

That's why they always wear long sleeved shirts and long pants

@  fourteenwings : (23 May 2019 - 11:36 PM)

Everybody knows the most bishie thing about any bishie is his exposed sinew.

@  MEDdMI : (23 May 2019 - 10:04 PM)

*looks up the humanoid slivers* ...really? People were calling those bishies?

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 May 2019 - 12:45 PM)

Have they made a sliver planeswalker yet?

@  RichardT1977 : (23 May 2019 - 10:29 AM)

"DECOMPOSE!"

@  Paladin : (23 May 2019 - 06:29 AM)

will they next evolve into Inhumanoids?

@  Ashley : (23 May 2019 - 02:42 AM)

the original slivers were spikey monsters. then the evolved into humanoids. now they're back to spikey bug monsters.

@  MEDdMI : (22 May 2019 - 10:42 PM)

Wait. Slivers were bishies???

@  unluckiness : (22 May 2019 - 10:40 PM)

They haven't necessarily looped yet. It's possible they're stuck in "yaoi anatomy"

@  Ashley : (22 May 2019 - 10:35 PM)

I think Slivers in MTG have crossed the bishonen line and looped back around to monstrous

@  wonko the sane? : (22 May 2019 - 09:48 PM)

Maxi, provigo, loblaws.

@  RichardT1977 : (22 May 2019 - 09:42 PM)

@  wonko the sane? : (22 May 2019 - 05:52 PM)

I need to buy more "no name" foods. This pizza is freaking awesome.

@  Bass X0 : (20 May 2019 - 11:16 AM)

@  Cybersnark : (20 May 2019 - 08:52 AM)

So, now that Game of Thrones is over, when can we get back to The Dragon Prince?

@  unluckiness : (20 May 2019 - 12:19 AM)

Like, half of them nowadays are montages of tweet screencaps from the writer's inbox

@  unluckiness : (20 May 2019 - 12:18 AM)

lol you expected integrity from internet news

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 11:33 PM)

I'm mostly confused how news sites went from "Analysing all the amazingness of Game of Thrones" to "Fans sure don't like this season!", like... way to prioritize clicks over a solid editorial opinion

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 11:30 PM)

[and there's a recurring setting of a "derelict industrial site"] is this like the Toei Quarry?

@  MEDdMI : (19 May 2019 - 11:17 PM)

@Foffy and then that giant lasagna just tipped over and killed everyone, to be later known as the infamous Bad Monday event.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 PM)

Ahahaha!!! Go read the reactions for yourself. To say anything more here risks spoiling the finale for subscribing Allsparkers, the quality of this season notwithstanding.

@  Foffy : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 PM)

pretty wild how heathcliff was in the game of thrones finale, i was not expecting that crossover

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 10:48 PM)

were they still super pissed?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 May 2019 - 10:48 PM)

Well, as someone who is not into Game of Thrones, it sure was entertaining to open up social media this evening to unexpectedly see headlines about fan reactions to the finale. Lmao.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:12 PM)

But it's also a SUPER-well known location in my region, so these extensive exterior shots without any post production alterations completely ruin the illusion for me.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:11 PM)

I mean, I get why they did it: It's an existing location that fits the purpose, it's open for the public, and they had to shoot some scenes in my home state anyway to due a subsidizing deal.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:09 PM)

Needless to say, it's not in Berlin, and even what's seen onscreen is waaaaay too modern for something that's supposed to exist in 1929 (even moreso as a derelict site in 1929). The structures seen haven't even been built until the 1960s!

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:07 PM)

I'm currently in the process of watching season 2 of Babylon Berlin, and there's a recurring setting of a "derelict industrial site" or whatever it's supposed to be on the show, and I easily recognize it as a place only a few minutes from where I live (it's actually a former ironworks site that's been turned into a public park).

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:52 PM)

Ever since I went to Japan last year, I have friend who dread watching anime with me due to that...

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:51 PM)

Not hugely, but I am the type to notice places once I have been there and say "Hey, I've been there!"

Whoever is doing the social media aspects of the Becky/Rhonda fued needs to be fired. Cause if you're claiming you've beaten 3 out of the 4 WWE Horsewomen you might wanna double check what happened at Survivor Series.

Ironbite-or have the welts faded by now


Didn't Ronda win that match by dq?

Would you want to admit to winning because your opponent wouldn't stop beating you with a kendo stick?

 

Ironbite-that's not the type of win I'd advertise.

As Corvus addressed earlier, the WWE thrives on technicalities. Like technically only one foot hits the ground, or technically you are allowed to not even enter the rumble when you are designated to, or...how technically Carmella still won the first ever women's money in the bank when Ellsworth snatched the case.

We can debate whether all these things are good or if they make sense but isn't that the age old proverb 'a win is a win?'

Mark it offical.  Kenny Omega is All In Double Or Nothing in AEW.  The Cleaner signed with the fledgling promotion and immediately got into it with Chris Jericho to set up a match.

 

Ironbite-so we'll see how this does.

I just saw that Eva Marie claims to have been in talks to return to WWE.

Not gonna lie, if she comes back with the same pageant announcer schtick and her first appearance is preceded by him claiming that she finally made it through traffic, I am going to mark out hard.

The Undertaker has just signed on to Starrcast 2 for the weekend of Double or Nothing. They already had Sting and Bret Hart appearing. This, in my mind, cements AEW’s legitimacy as an organization. I imagine Vince isn’t very pleased by this.

Starrcast is not AEW and AEW is not Starrcast. I wouldn't read too much into this.

Three superstars were officially released today:

 

Tye Dillinger

TJ Perkins

Hideo Itami

 

And let's be honest, KENTA's the only real one who'll have any impact wherever he goes. I hope he goes to NJPW.

Four. Arm Anderson was also released. I’m guessing both he and Tye are AEW bound as Cody sees a major upside to both. I’m hoping Kenta goes to New Japan too. He’d be one hell of a pick up and a nice replacement for Kushida. I’m rather meh on TJ Perkins. I see him maybe ending up with Impact or MLW.

Can someone tell wrestlers that Anderson isn't dead.  He's just been let go by the WWE.  Cause if I see Zak Ryder or Dolph Ziggler or anyone say thank you to the man when he's STILL HUGGING ALIVE! I'm going to lose it.

I mean, they could say it in person. They don't have to shout it into the internet void.

 

Then again, the wrestling business being the ridiculous mixture of showbiz, carnie tradition and organized crime that it is, performing a public ritual may be expected.

so i was on XWT the other day gtrabbing some CHIKARA shows...and i finally decided to say "screw this!" and signed up for CHIKARATOPIA.

 

Dear Sweet Monkey Chicken~!...that is, by far, the BEST $7.99 a month i have ever spent. Chikara being as great as it is, has such a vast wealth of fun shows, that this streaming thing is just such a great investment.

 

My one major complaint is that some of the "National Pro Wrestling Day"s arent on there, and neither is the "Wtestling Is..." stuff (but as long as you watch the "From The Ashes" movie youre not missing anything really)

 

I just can't express enough how much you guys need this. =]

I was checking through the TV listings lately and saw that the area My Network TV station had pro wrestling on Sunday nights. I was intrigued, and so cleared my schedule enough that I was able to watch the last 45 minutes of it. 

 

I thought it might be a local promotion, but it's actually a small-time group called World Class Pro Wrestling and...

 

They are *not* good. 

 

The first match I caught was basically a trashy brawl between two female wrestlers, the second match tried to claim that both guys were rehabbing injuries to justify why they were mediocre at best, and the final match had a scripted event in place to ensure that the guy with the championship belt kept it for the sake of story line. Adding insult to injury, they were clearly inside some National Guard armory and the video quality was such it looked like they were recording through second-hand video cameras. 

 

Anyone here seen them before? Was this just a bad night, or are they that consistently unimpressive?
