SHit. Something must be wrong with me because I was... entertained.


And Jason Momoa is going to steal the show.

FiverI'm also extremely into metal craft and collect various cutting implements. Some of my favorite blades are crafted out of reclaimed truck springs in Nepal. I understand the scene isn't realistic in the least, but it's effective.

It's the same way I feel about the swords being cast at the beginning of Conan the Barbarian, but I think we all agree it's pretty badass.

Still, it can be annoying when a subject your educated on is presented poorly. There are so many gun flubs in movies that irk me as well.

Dude, I'm a doctor, and watching movies and TV that has anything medical even occur in it is just painful, takes me completely out of things, because they're almost always SO far off the mark that it ruins the credibility of the movie. I mean, often the sentences they say don't even make any sense at all if you have a medical background, almost like they're aliens who have learned human words but not language. Feels like I've had a stroke in the middle of a movie because people are saying and doing things that simply don't make any sense at all. The Marvel television series are really bad about it, occasionally getting treatments right (though usually not) but at other times being so wildly off that it's clear they're just using cool-sounding words from medicine, not to mention having "the night nurse" do things that advanced trauma surgeons might do but are actually beyond the scope of even most physicians, in somebody's living room, it's like a parody of MacGuyver sometimes. ?Believe it or not, a guy gets stabbed in the fucking chest, you cannot keep him alive for several days with a nurse and a karate expert in some apartment.

I'm a lawyer, and for roughly the same reasons can't enjoy most legal dramas. ?From "surprise witnesses" to out of court meetings with the judge, it just can't work that way. ?It is especially ridiculous how fast things happen in TV (and film) courtroom dramas.
I'm wondering, though. ?I really like Scrubs. ?I saw an interview with the creators where they said a lot of the stories were based on real experiences some of them had had ias interns and residents. ?If you have ever watched Scrubs, is it in any way more accurate than other medical dramas? ?I don't mean everyone being incredibly witty. ?I mean their depiction of emergency rooms, and the conflict between surgeons and medical doctors, and things like that?

Scrubs is, going away, the most accurate medical TV show or movie I've ever seen. Not only is the actual medicine unbelievably accurate, like almost always right, but the way that doctors FEEL in certain situations was spot-on most of the time.


What are your thoughts on House?

I've never seen it.


Good talk. Glad we could do it.

Heh.
It's like Travolta in Pulp Fiction: "I don't know I didn't go into Burger King".
Really there was just always something that put me off about that show from what I saw and read. Arrogant, eccentric doctors are all too common and are rarely the life-savers they think they are, and even more rarely any kind of heroes, and the reality of health-care in the 21st Century is that the maverick physician has no place and really doesn't exist.


No, that's pretty much the show in a nutshell. It got pretty repetitive after the first season or two. But I am curious if you think the show properly reflects medicine. If you have Netflix maybe check out the first 2 or 3 episodes to see what you think.


Here's every episode:

WooleyI played Echoes (on vinyl) for a friend of mine who had never listened to a record and never heard Pink Floyd when she was 21 (about half my age).
She was mesmerized. She actually got mad at me when I stopped it before it was finished (because I thought she was getting bored).

Awesome. ?You've probably seen the Live at Pompeii film, which is what I've used to initiate people into the pre-Moon phase.

And DP, I'm not too deep into ELP, so I can't really help you out with that. ?But I'd recommend maybe checking out Emerson's first band, The Nice, where he honed his classical/prog hybrid. ?"Ars Longa Vita Brevis - 3rd Movement"


Thanks - yes, I've been listening to The Nice as well. I've got to remember to check the local stores to see if they have The Thoughts of Emerlist Davjack or Five Bridges.

Death ProofI've got a near-mint copy of Animals on hold at our local record store. Probably pick it up next week.

Funny, I was planning on picking this up this weekend as well. Got a gift certificate to burn at my local(ish) record shop.
I usually go for represses of horror movie soundtracks or black metal nowadays, but the local shop's great for all the other stuff.

Hey, Bill - long time no see.

It's the last Floyd I need for my collection. (I am, admittedly, not a big fan of their pre-Dark Side material)

I've been around, I just usually can't be arsed to bother posting anymore. ?But records though...
I'm relatively fond of pre-Dark Side Floyd, but only when the mood strikes. ?When it doesn't, it does nothing for me. ?Animals and Wish You Were Here are a perfect pair for me.
Have you checked out Discogs? ?I use their marketplace relatively frequently. ?It doesn't beat leafing through stuff in store, but you can find nearly anything there.

Nah, we have two places in town that sell records plus a third place a few minutes down the road. Part of the fun for me is leafing through the albums plus I like supporting the local businesses.


I have to admit... I've been starting to sock away some money for a jukebox. I have a big old hard-on for Tarantino's play list that they used in Death Proof. (that was apparently his personal jukebox from his home as well)

pugmanRatner sure knows how to put a target on his back. ?Boo-hoo. ?He has a hard time looking inward to the crap he churns out.

My 13 yo daughter sometimes asks what the RT score is, but despite the score we will see the movie we plan to see anyways. ?I don't know of anyone who routinely says they base their movie expenditures based on RT scores.

Sorry Brett. ?Blame Martha.

I'm currently on the lookout for anything by ELP. I was crushed when Emerson and Lake died last year, and have been getting into their deeper cuts.

The In Keeper[font='Source Sans Pro', 'Helvetica Neue', Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]Originally posted by[/font][font='Source Sans Pro', 'Helvetica Neue', Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]Janson Jinnistan: To you, interracial couples may be "no big deal", and it may seem that way given our current culture, but that's when we see people like "In Keeper" over there with his open hostility to the biracial Peele married to a white woman, and we also saw that crazy white slasher in New York just this week who has claimed to be motivated by his disgust of seeing black men with white women. Unfortunately, this issue remains relevant, even though we may prefer to see ourselves as more collectively enlightened about it.[/font]

This is ironic, your interpretation.

What in actuality has gone on is a biracial man, instead of dealing with his biracial issues has created a film which is s strong suggestion that if black men get involved with white women they will find their identity compromised and duplicitous white people will try to exploit them. It's his movie that has the problem with marrying or even dating white women, to put it mildly (despite what he does in his own private life-act as I say not as I do)

I have no problem with him being biracial and marrying[font=arial, sans-serif]Chelsea Peretti but[/font]I wish, in the movie, he had dealt with being biracial instead of imagining himself being a dark skinned black man oppressed by a white woman and her family.


Not only has he married a white woman but he was brought up by his white mother in New York city and had an absentee father.
This is the elephant in the room, being biracial in America. Society can't deal with it and neither can Peele. So instead he imagines himself a dark skinned black man who is being oppressed by white people and this vastly exaggerated pandering he has done has proven extremely successful in popular culture because it enhances stereotypes rather than exposes them. The unique thing that has caught people's attention is it shows the stereotypes that some black people have towards whites, partially true, which we don't often see in mainstream movies but they are not presented as stereotypes they are presented uncritically as truths, that is the problem. It's racist and totally one sided.

What I have a problem with a biracial person not representing who they really are or who they chose to marry. That main character Chris finds himself in an awkward social situation that many black people can relate to. So does the movie enlighten us as to how a character might learn to deal with the patronizing dumb comments he's getting from these white people? No, he never learns how to to tell them off. The only solution is to get out, racially separate from them and if they won't let you do it you will have to kill them. ?Yet not only is the director in his own life not following his own advise and placing some distance between himself and white society he has gone out of his way, not just dating a white woman but marrying one and having a child with one. ?
-and if he has issues about that that is what he need to deal with not make racial propaganda.
This film is completely dishonest and it is about pushing peoples racial buttons to get approval from black people. He has modernized Django to get brownie points instead of coming from an authentic place. The movie suggests violence is the solution but it is not just a horror fantasy. He has brought this idea into a society which is currently simmering with race issues, shouting fire in a crowded theatre but taking no responsibility for doing it and in fact in his personal life doing the exact opposite.
He is asking black people to revolt with violence but as he watches from afar in a wealthy community with his white wife. It's bullshit

One of the most underrated scenes ever. Goosebumps! What are your favorite underrated LOTR scenes?

It's a nice scene for the emotional content, but that's not how swords are reforged.

To hammer-weld the shards back together is highly suspect.? First of all, it creates weak points in the blade. If nothing else; those rejoined areas would be brittle and likely break on the first passage of arms.

To forge a new blade from the steel of an old one, first the steel would be melted down completely and cast into a new ingot, then totally reshaped. Additional carbon might be needed to strengthen the reforged steel, and in fact, depending on the length/width of the desired blade, additional iron may be needed as well.

Fittings such as the hilt, crossguard, and pommel aren't added until the tang is shaped, so measurements can be made for accuracy and appropriate counter-weighting.

Blade forging is a fascinating process to research. I have blades formed from reforged railroad rails, using the stock-reduction process. Basically the blank (about 4 ft. x 2 inches x 1/4 inch) is shaped by grinding material away until the desired profile is rough-cut. It's then finished by hand and polished. They are incredibly tough. I also have blades that are truly forged, some of Damascus steel, which are beautiful.

I would love to have seen that scene done properly, regarding the reforging. But yes, it's a good scene otherwise.



Actually, melting down the fragments would break the enchantments laid upon the blade. Being elven, Elrond clearly knew this which is why he was using the dawrven artificing technique called dweomersmything to not only keep the magics, but to allow them to rebind; which would also strengthen the blade (by a process known as glamermending) not weaken it, much like the natural mending of broken bone. It's not surprising you have no knowledge of this form of smithing since the art has been lost since the passing into the Age of Man.
