WooleyWell, that's a drag.
I mean, I don't have much confidence in the DC universe in general, WW excepted, but I have zero faith in Justice League movies being worth watching without Batman. He's the guy and he should be the guy leading the League. I give zero fucks about Cyborg, less than one fuck each about Flash and Aquaman, and we don't even have GL or any Hawk-people. That leaves the Big Three and Cavill's Superman hasn't really dazzled anyone, so without Bats, it's basically Wonder Woman having to carry the whole show. I wish her luck.

Batman is a character, not an actor. More than one person has done the role, some more successfully than Ben.


When you join the Justice League you can call yourself Captain Obvious.


They got something for you too.




Hey - another diabetes joke. The really funny part is that you wouldn't even know what to post if I hadn't mentioned I had diabetes a couple of weeks ago.

But hey - keep going for that cheap laugh. Evil likes it. And when he's happy I'm happy.


I figured we'd give all of our moms a break from your sexual exploits.






I'm sure Lovesexy can fill in for me since my blood sugar is so low. HA SEE ITS FUNNY CAUSE DIABETES!

I really loved him in CHUD. He had great chemistry with Stern.

Rated NCC-1701They hired Marc Webb for Spider-Man, but did they hire Jon Watts for Shocker, or did he miss out on Electro?


I'm hoping to see Sting as the Scorpion in the sequel. And maybe one of the Beatles as the Beetle.

John Heard was found dead in a hotel room yesterday in Palo Alto, CA.

Heard was born in Washington, D.C. His mother was involved in the arts and his father worked for the office of the Secretary of Defense. He had three siblings, including a sister who is also an actress and a brother who died in 1975.

Heard first appeared in theater off-Broadway in 1974. In 1979 he portrayed Arthur Dimmesdale in a television production of The Scarlet Letter. In 1981 he had the starring role of Alex Cutter in Cutter's Way. The following year he appeared in the Cat People remake with Nastassja Kinski.

In 1984 he co-starred in C.H.U.D. with future Home Alone co-star Daniel Stern. The following year he starred in Heaven Help Us. In 1988 he portrayed the nemesis of Tom Hank's character in Big. He later appeared in films such as Awakenings, Radio Flyer and The Pelican Brief. Heard was perhaps most well known as Peter McAllister, Kevin's father, in Home Alone 1 and 2. All in all he had appeared in over one hundred films.

Some of Heard's television roles included The Sopranos, CSI: Miami, Battlestar Galactica and Prison Break. He had over sixty television roles to his credit.

Heard had been married three times, including to Margot Kidder from 1979 - 1980. He had three children, two from another marriage and one from a former girlfriend.

He had won three awards for his theatrical work and was nominated for an Emmy award for his work on The Sopranos.


Heard had minor back surgery earlier in this week and was recovering at the hotel where he was found. Foul play is not suspected.

Sorry the guy's having so many personal problems, but I'm honestly sick of Batman and Superman. If neither of them was in the Justice League I'd have no problem with it. Some of the best episodes of the cartoon didn't have either. It's about time some of the other DC characters got to be in the spotlight.

The Guy
Sorcerer Supreme NamelessIt's not even about caring, or not caring. You see this news, you come into this thread, and that's what you are compelled to post. Of all of the Options for Posting which spun around on the wheel of fortune he calls a brain, he lands on fucking THAT. He landed on "Bankruptcy, and also I am a huge asshole"

It's, like, it would have taken less effort to write "RIP". He put something like 1500% more effort into saying anything other than "RIP" (2100% to be exact). I know I'm taking something small and inflating it into cataclysmic proportions here but WHAT THE FUCK. HOW DO YOU THINK?

Pot calling the kettle black? You were practically dancing on John McCain's grave before they even had a chance to bury the man. Spare me your sanctimonious bullshit. It's not as if I personally attacked the guy, but it is worth noting what a dramatic departure their last album was musically.

Just stop.

ashvirtuallyI'm not going to justify or defend asking if there is even common ground to be had with other human beings not seeing me as fully human because I have more melanin in my skin. ?There's no "playing the race card" in that. It's a legitimate question proposed to a legitimate problem facing the nation. ?That asking that question triggers the same, tired defensiveness and yet another bullshit equivocation is what's gobsmacking.

We face a problem in the country involving race, the same problem we've been facing since Day One. You'd have to be a blind, deaf and dumb twit to not see it - and to this end, I don't know if Yawn is pretending ignorance to offer up his smarmy contrary-for-contrary's-sake-everything-is-relative-asking-from-your-POV-equates-you-to-a-racist horseshit or if, as Janson suggests, there is something more to it, because he's not stupid.

FWIW, I want to believe that it's as Angela Davis said a few days after the election: this clusterfuck of a dumpster fire is the result of the last, dying gasp of white supremacy in this country. ?Despite all the despicable shit coming out of peoples' mouths over the last two years, I've seen good, too. ?I refuse to believe a significant portion of the white population in the USA are racist. Maybe this is wrong-headed (Gorb probably thinks so), but so be it. ?It is what the hell it is and only time will tell.

That said, we have an openly racist "president" who abandoned all the dog whistles of the GOP of the last thirty years for a fucking bullhorn and swaths of the country heeded its siren. ?We have people like Steve King and Jeff Sessions in positions of unbelievable power - known, degenerate racists - actively promoting their hateful rhetoric and, in the case of Sessions, dredging up failed policies that specifically target minorities, easing civil rights enforcements that specifically hurt minorities, etc. I very wrongly assumed Americans' "better angels" would see this age-old shit for what it was and refute it on its face, and yet here we are where we are. ?

Despite Yawn's never-ending bullshit: impact > intent. ?Always. People voting for this FUBAR out of fear is a fucked up, unacceptable excuse, not a reason, and there is a difference.

Of an even bigger concern for me, though, are the lack of empathy and decency in our society and the disparaging of intellect and knowledge. ?Izzy said somewhere here or in another thread I've been following that the solution to a great many problems facing our country is education, education and more education. ?I agree. ?But as she also said, one of the major political parties in this country has a regressive posture towards it and worse, the majority of its base is convinced it (education) is doing great harm to the country.

This lack of individual self-awareness and utter regression... we're in bad shape. ?Really, really bad shape.

Which leads me to where I'll finish: that it is equally incumbent upon me, as a black American, to appeal to the racists in this country, to find this "common cause" and appeal to their "better angels".

Uh-huh.

Spoken like a white American guy who knows fuck-all outside of his own circumspection.

Janson spoke a page back or two about what is all necessary to defeat racism. ?A lot of it is on the individual - you can't make anyone do anything, you can't make people see what they've been brought up and raised to believe isn't right. ?All you can do is share your POV (which I do) and hope they come around.

A lot of it is also on white America in toto to accept the reality of the problem and stop condoning it, both implicitly and explicitly. ?That someone like Steve King can keep getting reelected, that the entire white GOP-controlled Senate could overlook Session's long, proven record of racism and bigotry, goes to the heart of white America's complicity in allowing it to continue.

I will not be responsible for that and I reject the very idea that I have to go beyond speaking out about it, marching against it and boycotting those who perpetrate it. ?I reject this absurd notion that it's all relative. ?I reject the implication that minorities in this country are somehow to blame for the white supremacy that's been at this country's very roots since the beginning.

It's NOT all relative.

And that's all I have. ?I'm not going to with you, Yawn, so wall-of-text your rocks off. ?I can't and won't. ?Life's too short, and that was especially made clear last November.

Posts like this one are the reason Trump is in office right now.


Some response. Wouldn't it have been easier to just type "tl: dr"?

pugmanI still remember that stupid Bronco chase. ?The Rockets were playing the Knicks for the title and THEY CUT AWAY from the game for this! ? Thank God it wasn't the 7th game or the Houston population would've hunted down OJ themselves.

That was when the kid did the infamous "I see OJ" call to Peter Jennings which became a staple on the Stern show for years. He was pissed that the basketball game got cut off and made an amazing phony phone call.
