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)

@  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!"

@  wonko the sane? : (19 May 2019 - 05:50 PM)

Half of new york city (on tape.) is actually montreal.

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 05:50 PM)

I watched Death Wish 5 last night and clearly recognized Toronto streets; didn't pull me out of Bronson's 1-man war on drugs or fashion or whatever it was that pissed him off that time

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 05:49 PM)

it's nice to finally be thought of as exotic by somebody! lol

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 05:48 PM)

In an "I cannot possibly make my brain ignore the location I'm familiar with and pretend it's whatever the story claims it is" way?

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 05:42 PM)

Question for those of you living in exotic locations such as the US or the UK: If you watch a movie or a TV show that features a real-life location as a stand-in for someplace else, and you recognize the real-life location due to having been there in person, does that pull you out of the story?

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:15 PM)

Maybe you should have installed macOS in your house instead.

@  Noideaforaname : (19 May 2019 - 04:40 PM)

Nothing like coming home after a long day to find a bird in the house. And then once you sit down for a well-earned rest after leading the bird back outside, you find it had a friend. A friend who *really* doesn't understand how windows work...

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 May 2019 - 01:26 PM)

Bingo. The big polls don't tell people what's actually happening because that doesn't sell.

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 AM)

IIRC there are good polls but data is easily manipulated so they give people what they want to hear

@  wonko the sane? : (19 May 2019 - 10:58 AM)

The only way to get people interested in politics is to make into reality TV. So they lie to do it.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 May 2019 - 01:38 AM)

Yeah, polling these days is garbage.

@  Sean Whitmore : (18 May 2019 - 11:53 PM)

Well, he was an honest man. He wasn’t gonna lie to a 5-year-old.

@  Paladin : (18 May 2019 - 08:34 PM)

Grandfather once said to me, "I'm going upstairs and hug your grandma."

@  Sabrblade : (18 May 2019 - 07:08 PM)

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 May 2019 - 03:54 PM)

Life is like a box of chocolates. Stay out of the sun or melt into a pile of gross slop.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 May 2019 - 10:26 AM)

Greasy, disappointing and still managing to be over priced?

@  Lancer : (18 May 2019 - 10:22 AM)

... Yes, it is!

@  Noideaforaname : (18 May 2019 - 09:48 AM)

Life's a fillet of fish!

I won't be praising how they use Bray until I see what they do once his characters starts interacting with other wrestlers and gets storylines. Bray has always been on the cusp of being truly incredible, I hope they really let him loose.

Also, the legendary Tom Magee/Bret Hart match has surfaced and there's a documentary on it on the Network, and the match (with Bobby Heenan and Gorilla Monsoon commentary) follows the doc.


But in the current, digitized world, trivial information is accumulating every second, preserved in all its triteness. Never fading, always accessible. Rumors about petty issues, misinterpretations, slander... All this junk data preserved in an unfiltered state, growing at an alarming rate. It will only slow down social progress, reduce the rate of evolution. You seem to think that our plan is one of censorship. What we propose to do is not to control content, but to create context.

$100,000.00 fine for Lars's old racist/sexist/whateverist posts. honestly? you ask me...that aint even close to enough.

 

and AEW on TNT is like...the best news ever. its also hilarious to me that TNA is still languishing in obscurity, barely made it on Spike...AEW sort-of ran ONE show and has managed to snag an insanely sweet tv deal, essentially on hype alone...Damn good job Cody, we're all rooting for you!

 

Also, AEW signed BRYCE REMSBURG! no better ref in all the business. The man made a match between 2 Invisible men hilarious and actually WORK...he really is just..so the best. The Bryce Is Right!

Just, no.

 

To the "Monday Night Wars" part I mean. They're on TNT, but trying to direct compete with the WWE in anything resembling the Monday Night Wars would be stupid as hell.

Have you seen the reports of the product?  the Monday Night War Era was the best the WWE has ever been because Vince had to actually use Effort in order to get his product to number 1.  Backstage reports has everyone, I do mean everyone, on the writing staff seething at him because he's so god damn out of touch with reality.

 

Ironbite-even Triple H is pissed.  This is the best thing to happen to wrestling since.....well the original Monday Night Wars.

I was talking about AEW's approach, which I don't think should be to present itself as at "war" with the WWE or try to directly compete with them. 

 

Also, WWE is swimming in money right now from the Saudi and Fox deals, so I am skeptical that they're actually going to feel much pressure to change things up.

Ashley Massaro has died at the age of 39.

https://www.wrestlin...es-away-654180/

While I cant say I was a fan, I wish this news was as grossly overblown as Rics was today.

Additional info: https://www.wrestlin...ng-away-654182/

Given how the reports are being worded, Im thinking either accident in home or possible accidental overdose. I really feel for her daughter.

Ashley deserved better than she got from the WWE. Out of all the people who sued them over concussions, Ashley was the only one with a genuine case where she could say that what happened to her was 100% the WWE's fault as she had no wrestling career before, or after. They put her in the ring with no training and she got concussed, she requested to be taken off the road to go train and they refused because they wanted to make the most of her momentum from the diva search, long term health be damned. To top it off, she made an allegation of rape by a member of the military during one of their overseas goodwill trips, and management allegedly covered it up.

She spent a good long while fighting with depression, as is common with concussion victims, and that is all the WWE's fault. She was not given the training needed to do the work they asked her to do, she was not given the help she needed and if her allegations are true, they valued their relationship with the military more than the wellbeing of a human being that they were supposed to be taking care of. Disgusting.

https://wweconcussio...-Clean-11.1.pdf

She laid out all of her story in full in the affidavit she gave during the ill fated concussion lawsuit. It is a harrowing read.

Ironbite, the Times is citing The Blast and the Blast’s report is in doubt. The Blast claims Shelly Martinez posted to Facebook that Ashley committed suicide, but Shelly states it wasn’t her Facebook page and that she posted no such thing. Until we get confirmation from another source, I’m disregarding the Blast’s report.
