I am a rabid fan of Comedy Bang Bang (saw them live two weeks ago here in DC). I also enjoy a few other things on the Earwolf Network like Ronna & Beverly, Sklarbro Country and Hollywoord Handbook. On the comedy front I also listen to Real Time, Doug Loves Movies and You Made it Weird (by the way Pete Holmes new show on TBS is fantastic).
The popculture podcasts I really like are Firewall & Iceberg and Hollywood Prospectus. For political podcasts, I listen to Slate's Political Gabfest, the...
I'm so sick of this garbage. Sick of it. It makes me ashamed to be American.
Maynerd has given permission to start this thread, so long as it discusses current events. Don't start name-calling candidates or each other, or it will get shut down. Don't be buttheads and ruin it, please.
Apparently the GOP is planning for a brokered convention, since they have so many candidates. Personally, I'm still hoping that DT runs as an independent. That would be epic.
Once upon a time, we had a thread on Education. I can't seem to find it...it was likely in the old Political Soapbox. Regardless, increasingly, we've seen discussion of education show up in the Election thread. Probably not the right venue. So, allow me to create a space to discuss our educational system.
Is what we're doing in Public Education the right route? Should we have educational standards? Is it OK to leave some children behind? What should we be doing, as a society, to...
This pretty much says it for me:
The nation is soon to be under the aegis of an unstable, unqualified, undignified demagogue and with Republicans in control of both houses of Congress, there is little that can be done to constrict or control his power and unpredictability.
It’s like seeing an ominous weight swinging toward a limb, sure to break it, while you feel utterly helpless to prevent the fracture.
As the exiting first lady Michelle Obama told Oprah last week: “We’re feeling...
Has anyone here done this or the similar 23 and Me? Any surprises? I just got my kit in the mail and will be mailing it back tomorrow.
It's a long off season with no baseball, and it's a long season when it's back on. So, any time is a good time for jokes. I wish I could tell you all that I knew a lot of them, but I don't. I am good at laughing, though. Post the ones that have made you laugh. I guess we have to keep them pretty clean, but let the good times roll.
I can't quite see her stomping all over Trump if she were mayor, but the thought is delightful and I'd vote for her.
From political circles in New York City to cocktail parties on Capitol Hill, on right-of-center Facebook pages and among left-of-center donors, two of the biggest untethered threads in New York politics are being drawn together around a single question.
Would Hillary Clinton run for mayor?
The prospect has an obvious, novelistic allure: A run for mayor of New York this...
Here's a few.

People magazine reporting Carrie Fisher has passed away.
Right now I have "lean like a cholo" stuck in my head.
It's the one that goes, "elbows up, side to side".
Anyone else have a song stuck in their head?
Some years ago, I faced up to the futility of reporting true things about America’s disastrous wars and so I left Afghanistan for another remote mountainous country far away. It was the polar opposite of Afghanistan: a peaceful, prosperous land where nearly everybody seemed to enjoy a good life, on the job and in the family.
It’s true that they didn’t work much, not by American standards anyway. In the US, full-time salaried workers supposedly laboring 40 hours a week actually average 49,...
58 years old. Yankee career that was regrettably too short. The '85 Yankees will frustrate me until I'm dead.
Let us all quietly (or very noisily) escort that brutal beyotch that is/was 2016 out the door, and welcome in 2017. Get out the noisemakers, hats, glasses and party, party, party!!! :gulp::O :P
Please get home safely, take a cab, bus, train or use a designated driver.
I figure that this has been one monumental year as far as those who have passed on. We have, amongst the most notable names:
Her heart must've been broken. :(
Did a search, while there are a few threads about particular games, nothing for just a general discussion about anything.
I'm playign the Godfather for Wii, anyone else play this? It's a great game, not one I thought I would enjoy this much.
I'd like to extend my warmest wishes for my fellow posters and their families to have the most wonderful Christmas ever!!
Hope Santa gets you everything you asked for too.
