i think the insufficient <everything> in '99 was just sort of an homage to the original '69 event

Ford should not have used the Bronco name for the Sport; it's a completely different vehicle entirely.
I guess it's similar to the 90's when they had the Bronco and the Bronco II at the same time, but were completely unrelated vehicles

a dash between the R and the T would have been accurate in 2013

he used past tense, so do you mean to say he was a man when he was 17 in 1999, but he no longer is? seems backwards

Woodstock 99 on hbomax - 5/7

Man,what a total shitshow. That show was definitely marketed directly at me, fortunately I was a 17 yr old with parents sensible enough to not let me go. $180 tickets were the most outlandish thing I had ever heard of, but that Korn set would probably have been the highlight of my life at the time.

I didn't particularly agree with the conclusions that some of the more academic guests had, but it was a gut punch to look back at how toxic a community I was definitely part of was. The guests attributed it to malice, but in my personal experience it was more ignorance.

Total lol at the Coachella commercial at the end.

what community do you mean?

Midwest Express was still a thing when i had my first lap child so it became an armrest child and everyone enjoyed warm chocolate chip cookies

one of my first flights as a youngster was nonstop MCI-SFO on Midwest Express! the chocolate chip cookie and also landing on that runway thing that juts out into the water were highlights for young mocat

he kind of sucked during the Royals' run, iirc. always complaining about them being too cocky.
and i'm glad he got canned before he could cover a chiefs super bowl run

was Mike Vernon around for cigars 1.0?

we'll always have that incredible 2010 Nebraska rant during smoke your cigars 1.0 (right before they completely embarrassed us at home  :frown: )

KC Star articles that are only Chiefs players' tweets keep the lights on at the KC Star. if anything there should be more of them.

i always try to avoid eating on the plane, but sometimes you have a 6AM flight with a 40 minute layover, and if you don't eat on the plane it's going to be like 2pm before you have your first calories! however in this scenario, you only have time for a cold sandwich or something that isn't that smelly.

if you have time to wait in line for hot smelly food you probably have time to eat it before boarding

clay travis is a lot smarter than kk. he absolutely knows what he's doing and is incredibly successful at it.

i'm afraid kk more or less believes the stuff he says.

put another way, clay travis sits around with his buds and counts his stacks and laughs at how dumb his audience is.
kk sits around with buds and complains about the world going to crap

Point Break (1991) - 6/7 i thought this would be keanu's movie but it belongs to swayze. did you guys know this was directed by Kathryn Bigelow?? wow!

The Last Letter from Your Lover (2021) - 2/7  :zzz:

About Time (2013) - 5.5/7 really charming, great cast, some fun writing and chemistry.

Mank (2020) - 4.5/7 i had just rewatched Citizen Kane so it was time to take Mank out for a test drive. It's pretty good, Oldman is great as usual and i like the way the narrative structure echoes that of CK, but overall i felt like it was missing something. idk.

The American President (1995) - 6/7 it's fun watching a 1940s throwback style movie premise but with sorkin dialogue. the title sucks and it's clear they had no idea what to call this movie, but that has very little impact on your watching experience

Some incredible names in there

Colorado for sure

The gentleman who posted this on his Facebook page last month died of COVID on Thursday.

Of course he was unvaccinated. He left behind a wife and two young daughters. His wife has posted five times since he became critical and subsequently died. She didn't encourage anyone reading to get vaccinated. Those 5 posts have approximately 800 posts, one of them mentioned vaccination and it wasn't encouraging anyone to get the jab. Literally hundreds of these posts talk about God or prayers.

The widow had a post today saying the mother of her best friend has now been hospitalized with COVID. She asked that everyone honor her husband and her friends mother, not by getting vaccinated but by praying, some of the comments are literal prayers.

Do we have a clergy problem? Can this be fixed by religious leaders coming out with a strong pro-vaccine message. Yes, I know some religions are very much against vaccines, but that isn't the case for most Catholics and Protestants.

We have a dumbass MAGA problem, and, to be honest, we're totally mumped and can't fix it. It rough ridin' SUCKS big time.

It's not just them, they're the only ones comfortable being loudly ignorant, although whiny southern NFL players are starting to give them a run for their money.

I presume you're referring to Dax Prescott?


All I know about that show is a FB clickbait article titled “is that [actor’s] real penis in White Lotus” and that was enough to make me lose interest.

good to hear ksu_w is still posting somewhere, at least

irl amaze

That's an Italian with a check mark tho?

I’m part of the “45%’ers”. Gonna make badges for us.

the "%" sign is doing A LOT of work here
