Every time her name is mentioned I have to go to the collection and fap to watch Dead Calm.

I get that Farkers are angry at Scientology for besmirching the "Spacemen going PEW! PEW! PEW!" genre of books, but if you're looking at the amount of lives ruined by a specific religion, Scientology doesn't even crack the top 5.

That could make for a great horror movie plot. A woman leads a successful, happy life until the twist ending when she realizes it was a cult all along!

As much as you, ie I saw an HBO documentary and a South Park episode. Anyone dumb enough to get taken in by that shiat deserves to be poor.

I had a relative that was a flight attendant for TWA in it's hey day. Older Lucille Ball was on a flight and behaved like a MAGAT sitting next to Nancy Pelosi. Super biatchy, cussing like a sailor at everyone within earshot. Caused such a ruckus that TWA management barred her from any future flights.

My wife & I did The White Stripes in 02-03? It was fun. She got a long black wig, wore red jeans and a white t shirt. I wore white painter paints, a studded red belt, and a red t shirt. And my black Chuck Taylors. Dyed my hair black and parted it down the middle. Only time I've ever set foot in a Hot Topic. My friend threw a huge party and everyone brought their guitars and amps, drums. We drank mushroom tea and jammed all night. I did a few WS tunes on my Danelectro. When I washed my hair the next day it looked like some Satanic ritual in my shower. Good times.

oh, that's awesome!  what a cool idea!  I'm not really a WS / Jack Black fan but a cool idea (and you nailed the guitar of course, believe he favors Dans).

re Jack White....about 3-4 years ago I was watching the DIamondbacks game and making dinner one night.  They cut to a full face shot of a guy and I said to myself, "damn.....that is a dead ringer for Jack Black."

a few seconds later the announcer:  "Got a celebrity in the house.  Jack White.  He's playign the Dodge Theater tonight [about a 10-15 minute walk from the ballpark]. Huge baseball fan, I hear, as well."  Second announcer:  "well, he might want to start walking or call a cab, the concert starts in about an hour!"

that's how cool Jack White is.  "welp, soundcheck is done, I think I'll go watch a few innings and chill, then come back and melt 6,000 faces...."

I think it's hard to tell if a decent actor is great or not, but in Big Little Lies, the Great Nicole Kidman was out-acted by Laura Dern, Rease Witherspoon, Shailene Woodley, Adam Scott Vampire Eric and Meryl Streep (no surprise there). I just don't get what makes Nicole so great. She's boring.

For such a supposedly fantastic performance they seem to be quire shy about actually showing us footage of Nicole Kidman as Lucille Ball.

Has there been anything more than that half a second from the trailer a month or so back released?
