(TV Guide)   Not interested in the debates tonight? Well, you could watch Supernatural on the CW, A&E has Storage Wars: Texas, the Top Chef All-Stars battle it out on Bravo, and Comedy Central has a South Park marathon. Is this a great country or what?   (tvguide.com) divider line 152

Season 2 of Walking Dead is up on Netflix.

Strix occidentalis: CapeFearCadaver: Sybarite: Do any of those have drinking games?

What are the game's rules this year?

Dunno about the official rules, but I'll be playing it as "every time someone says something that makes me facepalm" and "every time someone talks over the moderator".

When I run out of drinks, I'll just go back to work on the armature for my life-sized plush velociraptor.


I'm taking a drink everytime Obama interupts Mitt.

Should be drunk by 9:30.
 
2012-10-03 01:50:52 PM
There is nothing they could say at these debates that would change who I am voting for. Obama could tell everyone he raped a five year old and wiped his dick on their teddy bear and I still wouldn't vote for Mitt Romney.

/Libertarian Anarchist so don't start about the demorhwg stuff.

myrrh: DjangoStonereaver: the_rev: I'm thinking I will go with "biatchin' Kitchen."

I should love that show: I mean:

[blog.sndimg.com image 294x355]

But I find her affected faux-New York tough chick accent grating in the extreme, and I'm someone
who doesn't mind Fran Drescher's braying.

Holy cow. Is'nt that what a volume control is for? I mean, you're not watching the show to hear her talk are you?


Actually, yes: even though she veers a bit too much into the foodie pretentious zone for me with
some of her combos, they're always at least interesting and maybe someday I'd like to try to make
one or two of her recipes, and if I turned on the closed captioning it just wouldn't be the same.

Rastapopulous: Supernatural is actually a really fun show that deserves more than the stigma of being on the CW. And this is coming from someone who never got into all that Buffy/Firefly/Farscape/Gossip Girl shows. This is an actual "good" CW show in my opinion. Lots of gore and funny moments and they avoid the soap opera stuff.

Yaaaaay 'Supernatural.' My favorite show. The writing's amazing.

It's also the only show I know of that's had evil clowns and a rainbow-farting unicorn in the same episode (and yes, that was an awesome episode).

Surprised this hasn't come up yet:

Before we begin, I have been asked by the Bush campaign to announce that, for the next three hours only, viewers in the states of Michigan, Missouri and Pennsylvania have the option of free Pay-Per-View, courtesy of the Republican National Committee. On Channel 62, "The Perfect Storm", with George Clooney and Mark Wahlberg, the film Mike Clark of USA Today called "The perfect movie". On Channel 63, the grandeur beauty and savagery of ancient Rome came to life in "Gladiator" with Russell Crowe. "Gladiator. A hero will rise." Care for something just a bit naughty? On Channel 64, ten Penthouse Pets join forces with ten Playboy Playmates to find the perfect Hustler centerfold, in "Miss Killer Body 2000". Contains nudity.

Danger Mouse: yanoosh: this is why I have not had TV since 1994.

I don't have an idoit box either.I, personally, would rather spend my time doing something useful than watch television

I'm really lucky to have almost perfect vision. I'm guessing it's because I don't watch TV. In fact, I don't even own one

Most of the time, I don't get many of the references people make here because I don't own a TV. I certainly could have afforded, that wasn't the issue-I decided to stand up to the glass teat

I'm not an elitist,It's just that I'd much rather sculpt or write in my journal or read Proust than sit there passively staring at some phosphorescent screen.

If I need a fix of passive audio-visual stimulation, I'll go to catch a Bergman or Truffaut film down at the university. I certainly wouldn't waste my time watching the so-called Learning Channel or, God forbid, any of the mind sewage the major networks pump out.

People don't realize just how much time their TV-watching habit-or, shall I say, addiction-eats up. Four hours of television a day, over the course of a month, adds up to 120 hours. That's five entire days! Why not spend that time living your own life, instead of watching fictional people live theirs? I can't begin to tell you how happy I am not to own a television


I seriously thought people that sounded like this were the invention of shiatty sit-com writers....I am stunned that somebody with that level of pretentiousness actually exists...

ha-ha-guy: As others have said, the only way the debate is interesting is if someone goes off message and melts down. If that happens


Don't expect a meltdown to happen. Obama is too smooth for that. Romney has probably been doing little more than prepping for the "debate." He won't have a 47% moment. In all probability, Obama will trounce him, but it'll be subtle. These debates don't much matter anymore. Obama's lead is steadily growing and this is not expected to change. Romney lost this election on September 17th.

I don't think Mitt will have a complete meltdown, but I think he will have a terrible time hiding his body language. He can't even get through a mock debate with Portman without things getting under his skin, or hide a smirk when an ambassador is killed.

I'll second Stop Making Sense. I loved the gimmick of slowly growing the band over the first half of the set.

I'll DVR the debates for shiats and giggles, but I would rather watch the new "South Park" and all 3 seasons of "The Boondocks", esp the "It's a Black President, Huey Freeman" episode.

/Can't wait till next Weds for new "Duck Dynasty" episodes on A&E!

NeoCortex42: I don't think Mitt will have a complete meltdown, but I think he will have a terrible time hiding his body language. He can't even get through a mock debate with Portman without things getting under his skin, or hide a smirk when an ambassador is killed.


I think he'll have his worst appearance yet. Romney is terrible at three things:

1. Speaking to crowds. He just doesn't have a likable, personable bone in his body. He doesn't know how to use expressions, gestures, body language or warmth to engender sympathy for himself from a crowd.

2. Debate format. When Romney has to share a stage and be equals with others, he can't handle it. He starts rules policing and lets everything get under his skin. His annoyance and anger becomes visible and he allows it to cause mistakes. This is separate from issue 3, which is:

3. Having his feet held to the fire in respect to details or having past contradictions pointed out and being asked to explain. He's proven thus far to be incapable of dealing with this.

He'll have all three to deal with in tonight's debate, and it's a recipe for disaster.
 
2012-10-03 03:17:39 PM

Geotpf: Ok, name somebody you'd actually like to be President then.


I can't. I see this as part of the problem. I don't like conservatives' social policies, and I don't like liberals' fiscal policies. Libertarians get laughed out of the election process, and have some pretty crazy ideas themselves. It almost like the political environment in this country will remain stagnant as long as we maintain a two party system.

Nothing in the world of television will ever top the suicidal teddy bear. Though the Herplexia ad does rate an honorable mention.

The unicorn farting rainbows was hilarious.

Wait, are these things real in that show? I never watch primetime CW, because, as someone mentioned upthread, I'm not a teenager. But if that show really does have teddy bears with guns and unicorns farting rainbows I might give it a shot.


Go to Netlix Instant (if you have it) and look up the episodes Wishful Thinking and Plucky Pennywhistle's Magical Menagerie (or something like that). I'd also add Changing Channels, if only for the Herplexia ad and the Japanese game show NUTCRACKER.

Or, and if you're up for some meta fun, I'd also add "The French Mistake" to that list.

JerseyTim: They should combine Storage Wars with the debates. Like, whenever one of them makes a good point, you could have Dave yell, "YUUUUUUUUUUUUP!"


I am sure both Romney and Obama will use the Storage Wars math model when talking about the economy. "That'll bring a trillion dollars all day long." Nothing like watching those morons add up the cash they are making, them and the storage wars guys.
 
2012-10-03 07:09:30 PM
I wonder what kind of money you can actually make doing the storage auction thing full-time.

Obviously the key is to have a network of appraisers that can help you understand what you've found and its value, and buyers to whom you can sell the stuff you find, and/or having your own thrift shop (which really shouldn't cost too much, just find the cheapest slip in some strip mall you can find and lease it, and it's not like you have overhead other than keeping the lights on). But without that network of appraisers and buyers, you're pretty much just a junk collector. It SEEMS like you could make decent money at it eventually, with some luck, but that it would take some investment of time, effort and money before you established that money-making system.
