We're learning how to work from our homes, and we're contending with lost jobs and the temporary (hopefully) shutdowns of entire industries. But at the same time, most of us are mourning the loss of something that we might not have even realized we valued so much: our connections to each other. Suddenly, neighbors seem as though they live halfway across the country, and friends and loved one can feel as though they're millions of miles away. How do we deal with the broad chasms that have opened? Closing the Distance is a series of ten short pieces that explores the sudden and seemingly uncrossable distance between people caused by our being sheltered in place. In each piece, individuals are faced with a lack of contact they hadn't anticipated - from loved ones, from their community, from new and emerging relationships, from their way of making a living, etc. In each case, they struggle with the distance until they find some way to bridge it, often with surprising results. Fractious relationships are healed. Unexpected relationships are formed. Essential relationships are sustained.

2019.12.23 00:02 Capgunkilla My 2019 First Year of Patient Gaming- Games I Beat With Short Reviews

Hi everyone!

I subbed to this channel and started being a patient gamer at the very beginning of this year. Needless to say, its been great and saved me a ton of money and disappointment. I love reading everyone else's year in reviews and the games they beat so I thought I would make my own contribution to this sub. When I was a lurker before, I always loved stumbling across list like this to confirm games I wanted to play or give me ideas for other games I may want to try. This post is long, because I beat many games this year, but you'll see my slow in progression come in the summer when my pc bit the dust (and I waited until Zen 2 released to build a new one) and I had my first born daughter. Other than that I am married and work full time, my gaming mostly comes when my wife is at work, or after she goes to bed.
One last note, I had a sizable backlog before this year, as most of you do, but I started using howlongtobeat.com to manage my progression on said backlog as well as give me information as to how long games would be so I could play shorter games in between longer games to not get burnt out on anything. I also try and mix up the genre after most games I beat. I highly recommend it as it keeps things fresh and I never feel the burnout described on gaming subs because of it.
Lets get this thing started.
Dates are listed as the day each game was completed! This is not some weird number review scale.
1/12- Prey (2017)
Right off the bat I'm going to say this is one of my top games that I've played this year and I've played some really great ones in 2019 as you'll soon see. Everything about this game is incredible and I absolutely love the atmosphere that this game creates as things seem to unravel more and more as the game progresses. The sense of isolation, paranoia, and emptiness of space are recipes many games have tried to copy before, but prey does this with masterclass. This sub raves about this game all the time and its for good reason. Only a few games meet the expectation of drop what you're doing and go play this game now like Doom (2016) did, but I think this game could certainly be added to that list.
1/14- Prey: Mooncrash
I know this is not a separate game, but it might as well should be. Prey: Mooncrash has the same look and feel as Prey, but has completely different content, weapons, powers, and its own unique story lines seen through the eyes of several different characters trying to escape the Moon. The unique thing about Prey: Mooncrash is they say you'll never play the same scenario twice, and I find this to be mostly accurate. Different enemy types fill out different locations with each run, and with each ending completed in succession the game gets progressively more difficult to pretty much insanity if you manage to get everyone to escape. Its nail-biting, strategic, and a little bit of luck that makes for a masterpiece of a DLC. Another note, I've seen several people mention that they have played Prey (2017) but skipped Mooncrash. Hey you, go do yourself a favor and play Mooncrash now and thank me later.
1/14- A Story About My Uncle
If I remember right this was given out as a free game. That being said, it was a surprisingly fun game that masters the technique of how to implement grappling in a video game. The game gets a little harder over its short story but at no point does it feel overwhelmingly difficult. It rides the line of making you feel like you're a God at grappling throughout the game and then ends before it gets boring. Some of the atmospheres are very pretty as well. If you can get it for free or a few bucks, I recommend giving it a go.
1/17- Undertale
Ah Undertale, I'm not sure if I set my expectations too high from reading all the rave on this sub or if the game just wasn't really for me. I loved the humor, the characters, and the thoughtfulness of including a ton of endings that all make for interesting runs if you complete the game however many times in however many different ways. I don't know, the game just never seemed to "click" with me all that much and I kind of found myself going through the motions beating the game hoping to find that moment. I appreciate the game for everything it is, I guess I could just say I didn't super enjoy it like many have expressed they did.
1/19- Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood
I think I picked this up to scratch the Red Dead Redemption 2 itch I was having but unable to yet fulfill. That being said these Call of Juarez games actually have a pretty good story and satisfying shooting mechanics, although they are quite limited in scope as there are only a few weapons. That being said there's not a whole lot of Western games out there so this one gets graded on a curve, but I say its not half bad at all.
1/23- Celeste
Man this game was pretty tough. I love platformers and always have and with that, I'm thinking this is the hardest platformer I've ever played. The base game isn't so difficult and I was able to complete the side B's of the story, but those side C's would put me in a mental hospital if I tried to complete them all. The hit boxes in this game are pristine (as they should be in a platformer) but regardless its amazing how fair this game is. Every death feels like its your fault and you know immediately what you did wrong, then you want to go try it again. Its an addicting setup that makes for an exciting game with adorable characters you can't help but root for as you race to the top of Celeste Mountain. If you like platformers and have some patience to "get good" then this game is a must play.
2/1- Watch Dogs 2 (and all DLC)
Watch Dogs isn't the most popular franchise and I found myself in the minority for enjoying the first game for the most part despite its flaws. I waited for this game to go ultra on sale and it was worth every penny. The world is huge, beautiful, and fun to explore every inch of. I also think this game helped lead to the downfall of my graphics card because man that 4k high resolution texture pack had my 1080 roasting. The characters are much more likable this time (although still cheesy sometimes) and I really enjoyed the many missions that were spoofs of real time events that have happened over the past couple of years. The gunplay is also fun, although a little out of place for a little hacker group. Just don't take it too seriously and go have some fun with your grenade launcher. The online community tie in can also be fun, but annoying other times if you're in the middle of doing things.
2/17- Super Metroid
This way back throwback seems to be out of place in this list of games, but I happened to be on vacation in New York when the Super Nintendo Classic came out so I managed to grab one of them. The Metroidvania genre is one of my favorites so of course I knew this was a must play since I never had the chance to play it in the past. This game blew me away and I had a freaking blast discovering every nook and cranny this game had to offer. The soundtrack alone is legendary and its like everything else about this game is bonus on bonus on bonus. Definitely worth the price of the classic super nintendo by itself.
3/2- The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
Also another throwback I played on the SNC. I love zelda and always have since I played OoT as a kid. This was another game I never got the chance to play and I can absolutely see why people say its their favorite zelda game. 2D zelda is a blast to play and the dungeons in this game are clever, fun, and numerous. Going back and forth in time is such a unique mechanic for the time it was released and it still holds up very well today. This game will have you wanting to collect everything and explore until there's nothing left to it. Don't live your life without beating it once.
3/15- Red Dead Redemption 2
I broke my patient gamer streak for this one and bought it close to release. Don't hate me. I could write a novel about this game going back and forth on the good and the bad but you've probably heard it all before. I loved the characters, voice acting, and environment. The story itself was good, but felt really dragged out to me and come to find out that was before I even got to the part 2 of the game (to avoid spoilers). The hyper-realism in this game is like nothing that has ever been done before and it was incredible at first, but sadly it breaks its own rules time and time again at an inconvenience to the player most of the time. Movement is clunky as hell in this game too for some reason, I haven't played Red Dead in awhile but I know it wasn't this bad. Anyways, its a great game that I often found boring at times but it had enough great moments to keep me going until the end. I have no interest in 100% this one as I did the previous though, but I did do all the side quests.
3/21- Spyro Reignited Trilogy
I loved this trilogy as a kid so I knew I would want to pick this one up to see if that nostalgia has held up over the many years. Turns out, it did! The games were just as fun as I remember them being 20 years ago and the remastered work on the games looks great for the most part. The gameplay is simple and fun for a whole family to enjoy, as nothing is overly difficult in this game.
4/4- Assassins Creed: Origins (and all DLC)
I picked this one up on an ultra sale and waited awhile to play it because I knew it would be lengthy. I had not played a AC games since Black Flag and I was a big fan of the franchise up until that point. I felt that Black Flag was the high point and then they started releasing AC games every year like Madden so I lost interest. However, I had read that Origins was different and had a little RPG mechanic with some looter shooter styles in it so I thought I would give it a try. Although I didn't overly care for the central character Bayek, the world of Egypt was beautiful and kept my interest. The story was not anything special for me either, but I felt the combat was good enough to complete the game through as well as the DLC, which was quite fun as well with its many boss battles.
4/11- Alien: Isolation (and all DLC)
This game was incredible and I'm so glad to be done with it and never play it again. 20+ hours of constant paranoia is freaking exhausting but this game makes it worth every nail-biting encounter you face throughout. Its challenging, resources are very limited, and that alien is just as unfair as he was in the movies. It makes finally getting the flamethrower just as satisfying as it was to watch in the movies. The DLC is also great and makes if feel like you're playing the first movie, which is a very unique experience to say the least. Play this game in the dark with headphones on and get pissed at whoever decides to come from behind you to talk like my wife did countless times. She was glad when I beat this one.
4/23- Kingdom Hearts 3
Another game I decided to buy near release, and this was another game I was disappointed with. I loved Kingdom Hearts 1 and 2 and have played them countless times throughout the years since their release. They've always held up over time (minus that voice acting, yikes) so I knew I wanted to pick this one up when it dropped. Again, this game just never clicked with me. KH3 was never challenging at all like the previous and the worlds were uninspired and dull to me with the exception of one or two. The Kingdom Hearts games in the past just looked like you were button mashing to win, but any challenge would destroy you doing that. With Kingdom Hearts 3, button mashing reigns supreme to anything you can do with skill.
4/23- Gone Home
What Remains of Edith Finch was my introduction to the walking simulator genre and as you can see further down the list once I played that one I wanted to explore the genre more. I had read that Gone Home was good and to to go in blind with it so I did. Overall, Gone Home was a good game that has a story and ending that was unexpected from the direction I thought it was going, which was a pleasant surprise in its own right. Pick it up and play it for a chill afternoon.
5/3- The Evil Within (and all DLC)
The Evil Within was weird, but that's entirely what I expected. I read about many comparisons to Resident Evil 4, a game I loved, so I thought I would pick it up. Although some may disagree, the great thing about this game is its not trying to be RE4 at all, but find its own niche in the survival horror genre and I think it has done so successfully. The game is a unique take to survival horror that is more twisted than most and I enjoyed its level up structure as well as the replayability that is linked to it. The DLC's (especially the executor) are also pretty unique and bring about a new perspective and varied content to the game that would not be realized without it. I have the Evil Within 2 sitting in my backlog now, and can't wait to play it here soon.
5/12- Subnautica
Subnautica is another contender for game of the year for me. I had read this game was good, but I did not expect to be freaking blown away by it. I hadn't played a game so addicting in a long time where I literally couldn't set it down. There was always just one more thing I wanted to do and the more you do the more you realize you can now do. However, the completion lists of things to do never feels overwhelmingly out of reach. I also had no idea how terrifying this game would be and the strategic survival mechanics that would be linked to exploring every inch of the ocean floor. This game can go from beautiful to downright terrifying pretty quick. I could have payed $60 for this game and came away super satisfied.
5/13- The Vanishing of Ethan Carter
Another walking simulator I thought I would give a go on a weekend afternoon. That's what I like about his walking simulator genre, the stories are interesting and short so there's no burden of time commitment with them. This game had an interesting story and I enjoyed it okay as I did care enough to get all the achievements, but I can't say its very memorable. However, I do remember it being worth the $5 I paid for it at the time if that means anything.
5/16- Soma
Soma was another great walking simulator that I expected would be good from what I read on this subreddit and it also held up very nicely. I did not find Soma as scary or jumpy as some others did, but that was probably from crapping myself playing Alien: Isolation a month prior. Regardless, a compelling story throughout made for a ending that was a far greater payoff than I felt like I deserved.
5/23- Shovel Knight (and all DLC minus King of Cards)
As mentioned earlier, I love platformers and Shovel Knight is a masterclass of platformers. I enjoyed every minute of this excellent game and each unique boss fight that went with it. The difficulty in this game feels just right and fair throughout, although some bosses are definitely harder than others. The DLC is a must buy and I possibly enjoyed it even more so than the base game, as playing as those villains adds so much more depth and content to an already great game that I just couldn't get enough of it. I own King of Cards through the Treasure Trove pack, but haven't had the chance to play it yet.
5/26- Metro 2033 Redux
Metro 2033 Redux was a game I had interest in for some time, but I wanted to catch it on a deep sale and that took awhile. Metro 2033 has great gameplay and claustrophobic corridors that makes for an interesting approach to the shooter genre I hadn't yet experienced. I appreciated the shorter length of the game, as some games nowadays are so overly drawn out. The game is dark, sometimes funny, and those weapons sound really freaking good in those echoing tunnels.
5/29- Metro: Last Light Redux
See above^ but really, these games look and feel identical. If you like one you'll like the other. If I remember right, Last Light is above ground more that Metro 2033, so there's once difference if you were looking for one.
5/31- Firewatch
Firewatch is one of the more beautiful art directions I've ever witnessed in a game. I think that's the general appeal to this game, as its one of the most used wallpapers you see on the battlestation subreddit. What I didn't expect was to be blown away with some of the best and authentic voice acting I've ever witnessed in video gaming. Seriously, it was so natural you would think the character actors are best friends in real life. The dialogue is often very fun and enjoyable. Minor spoilers* The games story takes some turns to keep you wanting more from it the more you play it, but ultimately ends in an anti-climatic ending, but oddly enough I appreciated it in its own weird way. It brought about a weird perspective like "huh, maybe not all games need to have a Micheal Bay ending." Play this game, just don't let them set you up for the big ending that's not there like they did me.
6/7- Deadcells
Deadcells made me feel like I'm playing Celeste again. Like, is it okay to die this much? Deadcells is hard, but you "get good" the more and more you play it which makes for an addicting style of gameplay. Level design is different every single playthrough which makes replayability through the roof and you'll want to discover all the different level stages and boss fights you can obtain by pushing further through the campaign. Only thing I didn't like about this game was the progression system which seemed to hurt the player over time rather than help it. Take it from me, look up guides and don't unlock the bad weapons for completion purposes unless you want your playthroughs to be significantly harder down the road.
6/9- Shadow Complex: Remastered
Shadow Complex is a game I wanted to play ten years ago and it was the very first time I had heard of an "indie" game with all the praise it recieved at the time on the xbox 360 arcade. It had been in the back of my mind for that long and I finally saw they remastered it and I could get in on pc so I picked it up for sale that came up. The praise is justified as this game is really fun in its own little unique way, just don't expect much from the terrible dialogue. The story is pretty crap too, but its the gameplay that you play this one for. Skip taco bell for a day and pick it up for less than $5 on sale.
6/15- Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice
Anddd this is where my computer broke. That sucked. Hellblade was entertaining and looked beautiful on my barely used xbox one x. The combat was very shallow, but I didn't mind too much for an obviously story driven game. I enjoyed the puzzles in this game as some were clever and the voice acting was also top notch. This was one of the few games that I watched the behind the game scenes on that was like 45 minutes long. A ton of work went into this game and it makes you appreciate it all the more once you beat it. Looking forward to playing the new one when it comes out eventually.
6/20- Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle
Mario Rabbids was surprisingly fun, but a little difficult for me to get into originally. I think I had so many other games I really wanted to play at the time when I bought it on sale so now that my backlog was quickly draining with my computer being dead it was the perfect time to give this game another go. And I'm glad I did. This game is very fun, clever, and much more broad than it originally demonstrates. The boss fights are all unique and challenging and one must be strategic when going about completing them. Some of the end game content is pretty ridiculous hard. Nevertheless, I enjoyed completing everything this game had.
6/22- Mario + Rabbids Kingom Battle-Donkey Kong Adventure
Another one of those situations where I know this is considered DLC, but its basically its own game. The DLC has all new characters, completely different world maps, and a story that is all new. This DLC was a little pricey, but it was well worth is as I enjoyed this DLC probably more than the base game. Don't play the base game without adding the Donkey Kong Adventure to it, I promise you won't regret it.
6/25- Life Is Strange
Here begins my review of the Xbox game pass. Life is strange is a game I was interested in for quite awhile but had not got around to playing. The story is slow, as can be expected, but enjoyable nonetheless. The game isn't predictable at all which is always appreciated and I love the mechanic of being able to immediately reverse any decision you make. This mechanic would drastically shorten the playthrough of any Fallout game for me. It has a pretty killer soundtrack too.
6/30- Before the Storm
Before the Storm was much of the same as Life as Strange, as can be expected. However, it was a different take on the story which helps piece together all the questions that remained from the base game. If you play Life is Strange, don't skip out on Before the Storm as it really helps develop the overall story.
7/1- The Adventures of Captain Spirit
The Adventures of Captain Spirit is a side spinoff from the makers of Life is Strange that is again much of same as its all the same developers. Remember when I said I like to mix up genres after I play a game or two to prevent getting burnt? Well all I had was gamepass, which was in its early stages and I was desperate to game. I didn't enjoy this game near as much as I possibly could have which leads me to my next game review.
7/5- Life is Strange 2- Episodes 1 and 2
More Life is Strange. God help me. Why did I do this to myself? Never before had I fallen asleep playing games before and I was passing out on the couch every freaking night with this game. Was I extra tired for some reason? Sick? What the heck was going on? Nothing, that was the answer, I was just so bored up to this point after playing nothing but Life is Strange games for over two weeks that I couldn't take anymore. Regardless, Life is Strange 2 isn't a bad game, I enjoyed the new take on a different story and the 2 main characters grew on me a lot in those two episodes I played. Gamepass only had the first two episodes available at the time and I wasn't trying to buy something they would release later so that is my end with Life is Strange 2, maybe forever. I need a couple year break at least I think.
7/5- ABZÛ
I read about Abzu on this subreddit and thought I would give it a go. Its very short and basically a walking (swimming?) simulator but a beautiful one to say the least. All this needs is Morgan Freemans voice to feel like you're playing an Plant Earth game. This game is all about art direction and it does that substantially well and has a cute little unspoken story that goes along with it. Worth playing through once.
7/6- SteamWorld Dig 2
SteamWorld Dig 2 was a game I did not think I would like near as much as I did. Although the game seems shallow at first with digging of course being the primary concept, it soon opens itself up into a world much more large than I anticipated. Boss fights are fun, level design has a lot of range to keep appeal, and there are challenging concepts near the end that kept me wanting more.
9/25- The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening (2019)
By far the cutest zelda ever made. Link's Awakening was one that I missed on the gameboy was I was siked when it was announced as a remake for the Switch. This game is all around excellent and its dungeons are very fun and memorable. My wife doesn't play a whole lot of games minus Mario Kart and Mario Party, but she even played this one through because she loved the friendly art style and dungeon puzzles so much.
10/22- The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D
I bought a Nintendo 3ds this year because I had never had one in the past, so of course this was the first game I picked up and played through. I hadn't touch OoT since I was a child so running through it again was like playing it through the first time all over again. Nostalgia holds up pretty well for this one, and the remastered 3D textures are done very well. The controls are also much improved and makes me wish this was the original game I played when I was a kid, but as the movie Step Brothers says when referencing night vision goggles "even better, we got them when we're 40"...except I'm 27.
11/2- Monster Hunter World
Monster Hunter World is my Game of the Year and it is the only multiplayer game on this long list of games and I must say I played the hell out of this game all year long. I nearly forgot to add it to my log, as I never listed it on howlongtobeat since at the time it seemed like a game that was "unbeatable" similar to Destiny or something of that sorts. However, after fully researching all the monsters in the game, soloing all the monsters minus the Behemoth and Kulve Taroth, and getting all meta bow sets and armor I'm going to go ahead and mark this one complete until Iceborne comes around. This game is unbelievable and one of the best games I have ever played. Entering this game I was completely new and unaware of the Monster Hunter series, I just heard it was good. This game has ridiculous replayability and I've enjoyed all the hours I put into it. Probably the most beautiful game I've ever played and it pushes my 2080ti for all its worth. Find a friend or community to play this game with and it'll be hard to set down for a long long time.
11/18- DARQ
This game caught my eye from a fellow redditor who posted about it several times through the development cycle and based on the Tim Burton art direction alone I knew I wanted to give it a go. Turns out its much better than I expected because it has some very clever and sometimes challenging puzzles that make you think how the heck did he design this? As mentioned, the Tim Burton art style makes the game gloomy and beautiful throughout. DARQ is also on the shorter side, which I appreciate because it doesn't ever feel like the game is repeating itself or getting boring by the time you're done with it.
11/23- Visage
Man this game is a jumpy one. Visage is a game that knows exactly what it specializes in and that is when and how to make you shit your pants. Similarly to but probably more so than Alien: Isolation, a constant state of paranoia surrounds this game as you slowly uncover all the secrets of the mansion you're trapped in. You never feel safe in this game, seriously. The most well lit room in the mansion, a bathroom, you can just sit idle in and the freaking lights will turn out making it pitch black in there, then you have to shuffle to find the light switch just like you would in real life. Its terrifying. This game is still in early access, but has been for a very long time. I still put 12 hours into this game in its incomplete state, and I look forward to/dread having to go back into this house to do it all over again.
11/25- The Room Three
I played The Room 1 and 2 last year because they caught my interest and The Room Three is a great game. This is a series that has expanded itself with each succeeding game and each game has been significantly better than the previous. However, The Room Three I didn't find as challenging as the first two games, but that's probably because the game is more fair and just makes a little more sense than a few of the puzzles in the first two games that would leave you thinking you would have never figured that out without a hint or two. I also really like the world setup of this game and how every room is connected and you have to go back and forth to figure out puzzles previously unsolvable. Makes you really feel like Sherlock Holmes and who doesn't like that feeling every now and again?
12/8- Furi
Going into Furi I had read it was hard. I like hard games, but I also kind of dread playing them at the same time. Once I got into Furi, I knew this would be a game I would enjoy start to finish. First and foremost, that soundtrack is bumping and one of the best I can think of in current age gaming. Each track sets the tone for each fight and I never got sick of hearing the music even after repeating difficult boss fights time and time again. Each boss fight is unique, must be taken down in very specific ways, and each can surprise you in a moments notice. This game is very fair with precise hitboxes and parrys so every mistake is your own. The art direction is also pristine as all the colors pop with laser lights and neon throughout. This one is one of my top games this year, go try it!
12/9- The Stanley Parable (2013)
The Stanley Parable is freaking hilarious. If any of you crap on walking simulators, go play this one first and tell me you don't enjoy it. The narrating in the game is unlike anything I've ever seen besides maybe Portal and it will keep you laughing throughout whether you choose to follow the narrator's directions, or carve your own path. Speaking of which, this game has a TON of endings. Some are more satisfying than others, but its really impressive how doing the smallest things can open doors to new areas and endings. If you're looking for a game that doesn't take itself seriously and need need some laughter in your life then give this game a shot.
12/16- Resident Evil 2 (2019)
I went ahead and added Resident Evil 2 remake to this list because I have beaten it, twice, but I still am playing through and I'm 2/4 campaigns complete. I had very high expectations for this game and it even surpassed them in the end. RE2 is remade from top to bottom with little to no flaws whatsoever. Seriously, I really can't think of one complaint about this game, as the combat is very fun and the pacing of the game is so well done you'l have no idea how long you've spent playing it. Additionally, the way the campaigns are set up provide replayability that is very rare to find in a single player game. I can't remember the last time I wanted to beat the same game (sort of) 4 times, and can't wait to do so. If I had to pick between all of these excellent games I've played, I think Resident Evil 2 would be my choice for best single player game of the year.

If you made it this far in this very long post thank you so much for reading my short reviews! I hope you enjoyed them and feel free to agree or argue with me in the comments! Everyone have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

All-Time Top 10

  1. KOOGLER!
This is simply the perfect ‘end credits scene’. It’s a spot on parody of the countless comedic trailers that came out in the 80s and 90s. It's also a great example of what Community does best; it taps into tropes that are immediately recognizable, yet it always seems to feel like a fresh take. The voice over guy is perfect, the font is perfect, the hack jokes are perfect... it just works! And can we just take a moment to reflect on how good Mitch Hurwitz is as a comedic actor? For those of us who knew him fondly as the ‘Dan Harmon’ of Arrested Development, this was such a wonderful surprise. He was so good, it didn’t feel like a novelty celebrity cameo (a la Vince Gilligan… sorry Vince), as much as it felt like the absolute perfect casting choice.
  1. Butcher And The Baker
Another fantastic parody. Another fantastic celebrity cameo by Steven Weber, who completely commits to this rather strange premise. The dialogue is well written and the production is on point. It genuinely feels like a different tv show. It was also a great touch to include the bit at the end with the fake credits, in which Steven and Yvette pose in that weird picture/video hybrid the network’s love to use. This scene also felt like the absolute perfect sendoff for Shirley Bennett. It playfully poked fun at the fact that Yvette’s and Shirley’s departure were both rather sudden and that the writer’s opted to not dwell on that fact for too long. But it also was nice to be reminded that Yvette didn’t the leave the show on bad terms and it gave me a warm, fuzzy feeling, imagining Shirley doing her thing in N’Orleans (or was it Atlanta?). Some might dispute this take, but I also thought this particular scene was a funny allusion to the fact that Shirley sometimes felt out of place on Community and was maybe a character better suited for a more mainstream/accessible show… like the fictitious ‘Butcher And The Baker’, perhaps.
  1. Portuguese Gremlins
This scene is simply a masterpiece. Yet another pitch perfect parody of something that felt familiar, but wasn't expected. The production value is off the charts. The way they shot it made it look like an actual B-Movie from a foreign country… so much so that you’d never guess it was part of a Community episode unless you were told so. Just about every Season 6 end credits scene seems to stylistically shoot for the moon… in a way that feels unrecognizable to Season 1’s far more quaint depictions of Spanish language raps and dueling Batman conversations. With this particular example, the ambition absolutely paid off. Also, it includes one of my favorite lines of the entire series. “They have only one weakness… me! [montage of an ancient, mystical man shotgunning the hell out of Knee High Mischiefs]”
  1. Abed Recaps Paintball With Janitor
I don’t know about you, but after watching the first paintball episode, I remember laughing at even the notion that someone was going to have to clean all that shit up. The second time around, the writers actually did what mindless action movies never do… they showed us a bit of the tedious aftermath. And in the process, they did a great job of poking fun at how jerky it is for a sitcom to take such big swings and have to essentially ‘reset’ each week. Also, It’s almost like they were shaming the audience for having a good ol’ time, whooping and hollering, cheering on the Greendale 7… while completely ignoring the needs of the VERY REAL custodians tasked with cleaning up that reckless mess. Our obliviousness is, of course, matched Abed’s obliviousness, which very nearly sends Jerry Minor into a rage coma. When he angrily confirms that he’s ‘working his way’ to the paint-soaked library, I nearly fell out of my chair with laughter. It’s the perfect conclusion to one of the best Community episodes.
  1. Troy Almost Joins Abed In Cartoon World
Finally, we arrive at an end credits scene that isn’t as gigantic a swing as most of the others. It’s one of the few inclusions that’s relatively short, self-contained, and might even be considered a ‘throwaway joke’. But oh man… what a joke! In the span of 15 seconds, Troy reignites his childlike belief in magic and then immediately has that sense of wonderment ripped away from him. It’s legitimately tragic and that’s kinda what makes it hilarious. It reminds me of my own, much more gradual journey between believing in magic and realizing that our reality consists of nothing more than responsibility and mundane bullshit! I honestly think this entire concept would’ve fallen flat had Donald not delivered such a beautiful performance. When he softly says ‘I didn’t… [looks down] I didn’t,” It’s up there with Old Yeller dying. But ya know.. in true Community fashion.. it was also simply a 20 year old who thought he might actually be able to run through a wall and live in Cartoon Land.
  1. Leonard’s Frozen Pizza Review
I’m not sure I can properly verbalize what makes this scene so great. Sometimes, it’s all about the meme. The fact that this sub endlessly quotes this end credits scene (“That’s a buy…) — I have to imagine that’s having an impact on my ranking. And, frankly, I’m totally ok with that. To properly summarize why so many of us love this end credits scene is to properly summarize why so many of us love Leonard as a character… and that’s a tough thing to do. Somehow, simply repeating the line “I’m high as hell and you’re about to get shot” does a better job celebrating Leonard than any of my annoyingly academic explanations.
  1. Puppy Parade
What is a Puppy Parade, you ask? Well, up until this particular end credits scene, I didn’t know what to visualize either. It was this ambiguous, highly intriguing event that both the audience and the characters were deprived of for the near entirety of the episode. When we were finally allowed to witness the Puppy Parade, it felt like such a treat! The Dean’s ‘Macy’s Day Parade’ type commentary was the perfect accompaniment to the absurd and adorable visuals. And hearing him ‘boo’ the overly preachy ‘Equality + Togetherness’ float made me, once again, fall out of my chair laughing.
  1. Donde… Esta…
Like I mentioned earlier, it seems almost strange to compare these early end credits scenes with the far more ambitious ones we see in the later seasons. Danny and Donald’s skills are quite impressive, but this particular scene isn’t overwhelmingly funny, or really, overwhelmingly anything, for that matter. But you know what I’m going to say… this scene essentially became the ‘calling card’ for the entire series. I’ve heard people say that it was the moment they fell in love with the show. I’ve heard a lot more people say it was the moment they fell in love with Troy and Abed. So yeah, maybe its level of ‘importance’ helped this scene work its way into the the ‘top 10’… but once again, I’m totally ok with that.
  1. The Guy From Jeff’s Gym
I’ve hit a brick wall. I’m bypassing a detailed explanation as to why this is scene is so great. Suffice to say, I love the joke, I love the parody, I love the execution, and I love that Jeff is further revealed to be a sociopath
  1. The Darkest Timeline
Why, oh why couldn’t they have simply ended ‘The Darkest Timeline’ riff with this really fun epilogue? Just about every character gets a laugh, as we discover, one by one, what horrors befell the study group following that fateful and fiery night. There’s not much else to says, except that ‘Clearly you don’t know anything about defeating trolls’ is one of my favorite lines of the entire series.

2019.12.08 14:09 nextzero182 I watch a horror movie almost every day, here's the best films I watched in 2019

(2019) Midsommar 9.5/10
This movie isn’t for everyone and I don’t mean that in a pretentious way. I do think almost anyone can understand the plot, the subtext and motifs strewn throughout. However, the way it’s presented, isn’t always traditionally palatable. Astor is just such a student and fan of film that you can see this kaleidoscope of homages and influences throughout this movie, all while making it feel like his own project. Florence Pugh really surprised me. She had huge shoes to fill and my favorite aspects of the film were brought to light through her performance. Her character arc is the entire movie and I really felt like I related to her character, while being terrified by how much I also didn’t relate to her, if that makes any sense. This is just a movie you need to see for yourself.
(2019) Us 9/10
I’m thankful that I can say, put simply, this film lived up to the hype. I was slightly concerned that it was going to be Peele’s attempt at a home invasion horror movie but the script is spectacularly original and I can say with all honesty, it’s very unpredictable. I love how it’s once again, like his previous film, set in an idyllic location. It opens with tons of effective humor, coupled with the cheery atmosphere; its inviting nature just makes the tonal switch hit that much harder.
(2019) Little Monsters 8/10
Lupita is absolutely exceptional. She blew me away in Us and she blew me away here. Her performance, character and delivery are so exceptionally genuine here. Really everyone is fantastic. Josh Gad and Alexander England are hilarious and deliver some really witty dialogue. It's just a surprisingly sweet and funny zombie movie. I loved it.
(2019) Furie 7/10
(2019) Godzilla: King of the Monsters 7/10
(2019) Glass 8.5/10
M. Night’s superhero universe is so special to me simply because it’s different. He took the task of creating and growing these characters in a realistic space, which wasn’t guaranteed to work. It’s pretty much universally agreed that Unbreakable is a fantastic film and Split while respected, was divisive. Now with Glass, everything has only become even more divisive as this universe is fully established. I respected this film so much for not hiding behind itself, the entire plot puts all three characters in the forefront and shines light on all their strengths and weaknesses. It’s clear James McAvoy is the star though. His performance is absolutely incredible.
(2019) Ma 7/10
(2019) Crawl 7.5/10
(2019) I Am Mother 8/10
I Am Mother is an incredible sci-fi horror film that while borrowing from previous successes, manages to add a whole new human element that makes it unique. I thought Clara Rugaard did a great job. My initial thoughts were that the role didn’t require much but the subtleness of her role arguably required a greater effort than a traditional dramatic role.
(2018) Dragged Across Concrete 8/10
S. Craig Zahler is unlike any other filmmaker out there. His style is akin to an NFL ref who really doesn’t care to step-in too much to call penalties. His films are lengthy because he really just likes, natural, raw, uncut scenes and that aspect is pleasantly subversive to traditional filmmaking. It comes with some potential pitfalls like actual missed editing (more so complete omission) opportunities of certain scenes and overall this project can seem too long. Despite the length though, it kept me engaged the entire time and has such a unique, albeit potentially racist perspective.
(2018) Lords of Chaos 8.5/10
I've been a black metal fan forever and this is a biography-ish (who knows what actually went down exactly) film about the band Mayhem. Man, some scenes are so brutal and dark bur most importantly, I loved how it portrayed most of these dudes as neo-nazi incels. I still fucking love Burzum and Mayhem but I'm glad they got this one right. Rory Culkin is pretty fantastic in his role and I feel like the horror community should be interested in this.
(2018) Incident in a Ghostland 9/10
I’m so grateful for a psychological horror film of this magnitude and frankly, the best twist since the M. Night-era. I’m filled with questions but ultimately I thought it was one of the smartest films of the year. I found the sound design to really play into the gut-wrenching meat of this project and it’s something I could discuss for days. The cinematography is also fantastic, violence is fast and impactful.
(2018) Climax 8/10
The dancing in this film almost feels like it’s intertwined with every aspect of both the story and the production. It’s almost hypnotizing at times and evolves eventually into a brutally intense sequence of dizzying follow-cam style shots as you watch these incredible performers contorting their bodies. It all eventually sort of decays as characters separate and reality from the drugged-up trip seems to blur. Actual horrible things are happening in real life but because these characters are consumed by delusion. I think people need to watch this and just sit with it for a bit before forming an opinion; I definitely needed to.
(2018) The House That Jack Built 9.5/10
In my mind, this is Lars Von Trier’s masterpiece and Matt Dillon’s best performance to date. It’s hands down the most fun, engaging, darkly humorous, disturbing, bleak and creative film I’ve seen in a long time.
(2018) Braid 8/10
Braid is a fantastic film and one that I can’t jump to compare to anything else. It’s such a fresh new take on the psychological horror genre. I loved how I actually didn’t understand what was going on in the beginning but was so enamored with the visuals that my attention didn’t waver. The film really excels in storytelling and all three actresses did a great job at selling their roles. It’s one of those great mystery projects that’s hard to talk about because you so badly need to go in blind.
(2018) Venom 7/10
(2018) Head Count 7.5/10
(2018) The Witch in the Window 8.5/10
First off, this film has the funniest fucking spotlight negative review on iMDB about a festering rotten cup of piss and I love that. Unfortunately, or fortunately rather, I wholeheartedly disagree. It was one the most emotionally impactful movies I’ve seen in months. The cinematography is so clean and correlates with the tight knit story itself. Nothing is hidden; the dialogue and visuals are very much the focus. It blends scary with intriguing in a way that’s truly unpredictable.
(2018) The Strangers: Prey at Night 7/10
(2018) Suspiria 9/10
It’s definitely a lengthy film but the narrative is fantastic. The visuals are muted in stark juxtaposition to the original but they’re so fucking raw and twisted that it works. There’s also several performances to note, Tilda Swinton, Mia Goth and our lead of course, Dakota Johnson. I don’t think there’s any competing with Goblin’s original soundtrack for Argento’s film but Thom Yorke did a good job. It took a re-watch to fully appreciate his work but I like that it’s different and very melancholy.
(2018) The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then The Bigfoot 7.5/10
(2018) Bird Box 8/10
The creature design in this film is so incredibly unique and almost intangible at points. It’s not without its minor flaws, such as some shoe-horned characters and flirtations with over-used tropes but they don’t seem to detract from the big picture.
(2018) Hold the Dark 8/10
Jeremy Saulnier is an incredible director, usually putting forth visceral experiences that both speak for themselves and hit the viewer hardest from a visually artistic standpoint. Hold the Dark is completely different. It contains the same expert level cinematography, sound design and photography but where it differs is its story driven aspects. The tale of this film so-to-speak, is fucking insane.
(2018) Halloween 8/10
I absolutely loved this movie, if not simply for the fact that it balanced that difficulty of paying homage to the original series, while using modern techniques to elevate it. It’s extremely well-produced but still forces itself to break away from the obscured angles and macro shots to give us these raw, long follow-cam sequences.
(2017) The Crescent 7/10
(2017) Cold Skin 7/10
(2017) Jungle 8/10
For a religious-themed film about survival and hope, McLean did decide to pull from his horror-film roots for the most intense, seemingly hopeless portions of the film. The ominous music, tense visuals and crushing psychological twist is for me, what sets it apart from many other films of the same vein.
(2017) Pyewacket 8.5/10
I fucking love occult horror and this film was downright scary. That’s truly one of the greatest accomplishments because I don’t usually get scared watching horror films anymore. It’s somewhat of a slow burn but in a way that really creeped me out.
(2017) A Ghost Story 9.5/10
It’s really difficult to put into words why I loved this movie so much because it was less about the mechanics and more about that way it made me feel. I never thought I would come close to crying watching Rooney Mara eat pie for what seemed like a half hour but here we are. It’s an arthouse film. They fuck with the aspect ratio. They fuck with every shot, oftentimes by not fucking with it at all. It was touching to me; sweet at times, dark, lonely and ultimately hard hitting.
(2017) The Bar 7.5/10
(2017) Tigers Are Not Afraid 9/10
It didn’t even really register to me that even films that portray the Cartel in the most violent way, still tend to be glorifying the culture. This film weighs the innocence of childhood directly against the gang’s ruthless nature to deliver a seriously moving project. I absolutely loved the art direction and cinematography. There’s a certain simplicity to it all which seems to oscillate between endearing, depressing and terrifying. The child actors are also remarkable, I’m not sure how these directors manage to even find them. The story is really tight-knit as well, which makes the pacing almost impeccable. Scene after scene, the film just gets more “real” while also losing itself in fantasy. It’s just wonderful.
(2016) Sam Was Here 9/10
Never in my 4 years of reviewing on here have as so firmly disagreed with an iMBD score but this movie is fucking fantastic. It's evil, it's mysterious, well shot, well acted and one of the most suspenseful films I've seen this year. I was absolutely rocked by the ending and I have nothing left to say. The mystery is the most fun part so just go watch it and pay attention to detail.
(2016) Are We Not Cats 8/10
This is a film that, at least for me, beckoned some further understanding or hidden meaning. Now that I sit with it though, I've very satisfied with the experience. It felt desolate yet intimate, gross, strange and helpless. I feel like it's a fantastic project about acceptance, hardship and empathy. It seems like it was comprised with all amateur actors and filmmakers but I'm impressed with every aspect of the film.
(2015) Southbound 7/10
(2015) Baskin 8/10
The first 40 minutes are a horror-filled dreamlike sequence of dialogue only. Given the explicit nature this film eventually gets into, the fact that it’s my favorite portion of the film says so much about the quality of this script.
(2015) Remember 9.5/10
This is an absolutely enthralling and heartbreaking revenge film. It’s the type of movie where I don’t want to mention a single detail about the story because the story is the entire film. The acting and script are top notch; cinematography clean and focused. It’s one of the most immersive experiences I’ve seen this year and something that felt hard to even pause.
(2014) Tusk 7/10
(2014) Dead Snow 2: Red vs. Dead 7/10
(2014) The One I Love 7.5/10
(2014) Life After Beth 7/10
(2014) Honeymoon 8/10
There is definitely overt horror as the film climaxes but it’s a very performance driven film. Rose Leslie is to thank for that that, her character is genuine and believable throughout. Harry Treadaway deserves a mention too because he’s great as well. It’s really the contrasting highs and lows of their on-screen relationship that build tension and create this anxious atmosphere.
(2014) Creep 7/10
(2014) As Above So Below 7/10
(2014) Girl House 7/10
(2013) I Spit on Your Grave 2 7/10
(2013) Horns 8.5/10
This film has so many different faces and it’s an absolute grab-bag of emotions depending on what scene you to choose to examine. The reason that mix isn’t to its detriment though is because that constant tonal shift if present throughout the entire fucking film. I love religious based horror like this and this sort of filled me with that wide-eyed fascination that Erremenatri gave me.
(2013) V/H/S 2 7.5/10
(2013) Coherence 8/10
I absolutely love this movie. I’ll be upfront in saying it’s difficult to talk about without spoiling anything. However, I genuinely found the events that transpire during this normal dinner party setting to be unsettling.
(2013) Bad Milo 8/10
This movie is so fucking funny. As a person with anxiety and acid reflux, it was just wonderful. Ken Marino was absolutely hilarious and it’s one of the most ridiculous films of the decade.
(2013) Afflicted 8/10
The found footage genre isn’t new but a version dominated by POV shots, such as this one, is less common. In this instance, it works incredibly well. Considering I’m writing this in 2019, it’s a damn shame directors Derek Lee and Clif Prowse haven’t released another film. They’re such standout filmmakers, writers and even solid actors as well. The story itself isn’t mind-blowing but it’s absolutely engaging and definitely not a weak spot. I feel like without it the production efforts would have felt gimmicky but as an entire package, the film is a vicious, fun ride.
(2012) Vamps 7.5/10
(2012) V/H/S 8/10
Anthologies are one of my favorite mediums to consumer horror but can also be the most difficult to pull off. This film has writing and directing credits in the double digits and with that many creative minds working together as well as separately, it’s very common for a portion of the film to fall short. V/H/S is incredibly special for defying this common pitfall by delivering shorts that are diverse but consistent in quality.
(2012) The Bay 7.5/10
(2012) Sinister 8/10
I found Sinister to be a perfect blend of bleakness and scary. It has some effective jump scares to reel in that horror, cinematic experience but also casually injects some incredibly fucked-up content. For a wide-released, ultra-popular horror film, it pushes the limits quite a bit. The fount footage aspects are the best part. Ethan Hawke is great and everything but there’s something about these tapes, coupled with very eerie audio that just throw you off balance.
(2011) You’re Next 7/10
(2011) Apollo 18 7/10
(2011) The Cabin in the Woods 9/10
It’s literally a statement on the instability of the horror genre itself. The production is fantastic and however goofy it may seem, it’s actually thrilling. The film has the ability to create and break stereotypes simultaneously.
(2011) Source Code 8.5/10
I always pay attention to films that require a character to accept an entirely new reality. With a normal films runtime, it can be difficult to balance that pacing of that sort of character development. This film is a great example of it done right. Gyllenhaal’s characters’ reluctance vs. acceptance are two aspects that work in tandem throughout most of the film. It’s a very human and a definite point of praise.
(2010) The Crazies 7.5/10
(2010) Tucker and Dale vs Evil 8.5/10
This movie is one long gag but it’s both completely genius and absolutely hilarious. It’s truly a masterpiece of satirical meta-horror.
(2010) I Spit on Your Grave 9/10
This is the most gruesome, violent revenge film I’ve seen to date and a shining example of a movie that holds back nothing. It’s 50 min of an elongated rape scene followed by a Hellraiser level revenge sequence that will make the most seasoned horror fans wince.
(2009) Zombieland 8/10
This is an incredible zombie film and despite feeling like a time-capsule of 2009, the core components still hold up really well. It’s a short, sweet, easily digestible and simply, fun to watch. I love all four main characters but the dynamic between Eisenberg and Woody was my favorite. Woody in particular is fucking hilarious and oftentimes I felt as if his energy actually was actually the backbone of the entire film.
(2009) Jennifer’s Body 7.5/10
(2009) Triangle 8/10
It’s a movie that’s strangely simplistic while being really complex. There’s a ton to be gleaned from the details and, outside of the exposition, I actually had the most fun simply pondering what the bigger picture was.
(2008) The Ruins 8/10
I actually had put on this movie looking for a schlocky, vacation horror that I could semi-tune out to but I was so impressed. I feel like I’m the first person to say this but I saw a few big connections to Annihilation. There’s some super creepy shit with plants and relevant to that, a very familiar misdirection. The gore is also fantastic.
(2007) The Poughkeepsie Tapes 7/10
(2007) Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street 7.5/10
(2007) 1408 9.5/10
John Cusack helms what to me is one of the scariest haunted house films ever made. It’s a project that breaks free of the traditional tactics and roots itself in psychological horror. I highly recommend this for literally anyone and everyone. It feels like being water-boarded by supernatural/psychological horror and by the end, I felt spent, in the best way possible.
(2007) Stuck 7/10
(2006) Slither 7/10
(2006) Bug 7.5/10
(2006) The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning 7.5/10
(2006) Final Destination 3 7/10
(2006) Hatchet 7.5/10
The predictable characters, campiness and outrageous special effects aren’t just essential to this film but slashers in general. I love Victor Crowley. Does he bear some resemblance to Jason? Sure, I can see it but this inbred mongoloid also happens to have his own unique charm. Despite the film being called “Hatchet”, Victor isn’t afraid to use anything and everything around him to kill.
(2006) Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon 7.5/10
(2005) Hostel 7.5/10
(2005) Doom 7/10
(2005) Shaun of the Dead 9/10
This movie is just wonderful. I find it hilarious on a personal level but also so intelligently funny that it could go down as one of the greatest horror-comedies of all time.
(2005) The Butterfly Effect 8/10
Alright so I watched the director’s cut and wow, I fucking loved it dude. I should note I think it can take an open mind to fully accept and appreciate the new ending but I found it made the entire film much more complex. I highly recommend checking out this version of the movie.
(2004) The Village 8/10
One of the saving graces for this film was the writing of William Hurt’s character. He’s such a uniquely sensitive and honest injection into what lays out on paper as one big deception. M. Night chooses to lift the veils fairly early on about the more thrilling aspects of the film, which is a complaint for many. However, it rightfully reverts the focus back onto the characters in my mind and the sense of desperation that embodies this village. Ultimately what the film represents to me is hope. I’d recommend not listening to what you’ve heard and checking it out for yourself. I think that after over a decade has passed since its misguided marketing, the film deserves a second chance under fresh perspectives.
(2004) Dead Man’s Shoes 8/10
One of my favorite sub-genre’s is revenge horror and this low-budget film implores its characters to be as human as possible. Beyond the veil of violence and even characteristics indicative of slasher films, Considine’s character is a deeply flawed, psychologically broken man. Oftentimes in revenge films, we see this unstoppable omnipotent protagonist fueled by pure rage but here, his fearlessness goes hand-in-hand with recklessness.
(2003) Jeepers Creepers 2 7/10
(2003) House of 1000 Corpses 7.5/10
(2003) Alexandra’s Project 7.5/10
(2003) Scary Movie 3 8/10
As much as both horror and comedy films can succeed without actually being scary or funny, those are still some of the most important aspects. If I’m scared, it’s an effective horror film and the same goes for comedies. Basically what I’m trying to say is that as dumb as a movie like this is, it’s so fucking funny. It also strays away from just making fun of horror with parodies of 8 Mile, which is just delightfully retarded.
(2003) Final Destination 2 7/10
(2002) The Ring 9.5/10
This was one of the scariest fucking movies I saw as a kid and it still is to this day. It also happens to be, what I consider, one of the few powerful uses of grey-scale film in existence. It's bleak, expertly paced and really just pure tension from start to finish. I love everything about this film. Gore did a fantastic job directing but I have a huge amount of respect for Ehren Kruger as well for the screenplay. The original film is iconic but frankly, this is better.
(2001) Jeepers Creepers 8/10
I’d go as far as to say this is the best demonic horror film, post 2000’s. Justin Long is a breakout star. A lot of people shit on him but his wide-eyed looks alone made this film the success it is. He was more successful in portraying fear than most modern actors.
(2001) Dagon 8.5/10
Stuart Gordon doing Lovecraft isn’t something I could ever envision as being anything but fantastic and this film confirmed that. Stuart working with David Marti this time on the visual effects; I can’t even begin to describe how excellent the body-horror is here. It’s fucking fantastic.
(2001) The Others 8/10
It’s a film to be that blends drama with horror in the fashion that tends to suit a really good haunted house film. For me personally, I felt the séance sequence is what stood to me most. It’s not the most violent, lengthy or erratic scenes I’ve seen of its type. However, its reveal and overall fluidity is something that just came off very eerie and hopeless.
(2000) Final Destination 7.5/10
(1999) Sleepy Hallow 7.5/10
(1998) Disturbing Behavior 7.5/20
(1997) Event Horizon 7.5/10
(1996) Scream 9.5/10
Scream just may be the best meta-horror film ever made. It’s so special to me and was probably the film that sparked my fascination with horror. I watched it the year after it came out, at 8-years old, alone in my dark basement. I shut it off after the opening scene with Drew Barrymore and never saw the rest until years later. However, if I had just stuck with it, it actually evolves into this darkly funny, poignant statement on slasher films. I could talk about a ton of performances but Matthew Lillard blows me the fuck away every time I watch this movie. I literally get chills during the climax seeing him become and own this fucking character. He’s just incredible.
(1994) Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein 9/10
Absolutely, hands down the best modern Frankenstein movie I’ve ever seen. Robert De Niro brought life to a character that was fucking meant to have life. It’s one of the most entertaining, gothic interpretations of the original story.
(1992) Army of Darkness 7.5/10
(1991) Sometimes They Come Back 8/10
This is a simple story by King standards but I think it was incredibly effective. It's childhood based and emotionally impactive. It incites bravery with acceptance and mostly, just makes me want to hug my younger brothers.
(1991) The Silence of the Lambs 9.5/10
This film is a model in dialogue-driven horror and both Anthony Hopkins and Jodie Foster are incredible in it. I only say dialogue-driven horror because while the film does stand out in blatant, suspenseful, scary moments; it's the conversations between Clarice and Dr. Lecter that make it so memorable. It just adds this timeless psychological horror element that helps establish it as a classic in my eyes.
(1990) Gremlins 2: The New Batch 7.5/10
(1990) Tales from the Darkside: The Movie 7.5/10
(1989) The Cook, the Thief, His Wife & Her Lover 9/10
This film is so exceptionally cruel. Even when there’s a clear bad guy it seems as if everyone is fighting to get to the bottom. It’s unapologetic, violent, with dynamic characters that thrive on hedonistic impulses. Visually, it’s remarkable. You would think it’s a Giallo film before you heard people speaking non-dubbed English. I’m not just speaking aesthetically too but every color choice and wardrobe decision seems fully intertwined with the film’s central message.
(1989) Intruder 7.5/10
(1988) Following 8/10
Following is actually Nolan’s debut film and seeing that he’s one of my favorite directors, I’m almost mad it took me this long to see it. Shot in black and white, this super low-budget crime-noir, psychological thriller is an incredible feat in storytelling and sets the tone for Nolan as a career director. It features his classic non-linear plot as well as really being a character driven film. For a big-budget director, it’s almost heartwarming to know that he could accomplish something like this on almost nothing. It’s reminiscent of Man Bites Dog and Hitchcock films but very much stylistically, and most importantly, Nolan himself.
(1988) Brain Damage 7/10
(1988) Halloween 4: The Return 7/10
(1988) Beetlejuice 9/10
This film is, head-to-toe, one of Burton’s strangest films to date. Not only is it just a strange original story but the production and overall execution is absolutely insane.
(1987) Evil Dead 2 8.5/10
Just from a technical perspective, everything is so fucking impressive. It’s all basically hand-done, practical effects and the camera work is just remarkable. The film leans more towards the humor side of the series but it does so both intentionally and gracefully.I adore this movie, it’s on par with the original. I don’t think I can necessarily rate it the same from an analytical perspective but from an enjoyment perspective, hell-fucking-yeah dude.
(1987) Angel Heart 8/10
Mickey Rourke is incredible here and it’s simply a satanic, thriller epic. There’s not a huge twist per-say but the entire film slowly reveals something horrible about the main characters.
(1985) Re-Animator 8/10
It’s probably one of the goriest movies of the decade but it’s also endearing in its humor. Don’t get me wrong, it’s brutal. It’s ultra-violent, perversely sexual even but the way fans revere it is what makes it so special.
(1985) Day of the Dead 7.5/10
(1984) Gremlins 7/10
(1983) Cujo 7/10
(1982) Cat People 9/10
I love the original film to death but I couldn’t be more satisfied with the direction this pseudo-remake went in. It’s less of a psychological thriller and more of an erotic, body-horror fever dream. Also features a great score by Giorgio Moroder, as well as an excellent theme song by Bowie.
(1982) Poltergeist 8.5/10
Sans maybe one scene of CGI, this is one of the 80’s best displays of practical effects. I sometimes don’t even think of Tobe Hooper as an elite director until I watch his films and instantly I’m clicked into the magic. I just love how the characters are rough around the edges. The parents smoking weed together and playing around is endearing and humanizing. Humor is strewn throughout very naturally to make the film more fun.
(1981) The House by the Cemetery 8.5/10
People love The Beyond but this film does a much better job at devolving into that hellish landscape from a simplistic approach. The gore is unreal and coupled with his absolute best camera work to date, I can’t see it as anything but his masterpiece.
(1980) Cannibal Holocaust 7.5/10
(1979) Apocalypse Now 9/10
It’s a long film and the scale, especially in certain combat scenes is just fucking huge. I mean the actual production itself, the budget, the scope of this fucking movie is massive. The entire time I was struggling to really understand the narrative, what the actual goal was but really, that confusion was intentional. This is Coppola’s profound statement on the pointlessness, and specifically so, of the Vietnam War. It’s an incredible film and a must watch.
(1977) The Hills Have Eyes 7/10
(1976) Carrie 8.5/10
This film was fantastic. I love Sissy Spacek, she just really embodies this role and it’s one of those performances that I couldn’t see anyone else playing.
(1973) Don’t Look Now 8/10
I felt this film was a great study into ambiguous filmmaking vs overt horror, really relying on the former. There’s tons of fantastic performances suggesting a really sinister narrative, all leading up to a decently insane finale.
(1972) Raw Meat 7/10
(1972) Tales from the Crypt 7.5/10
(1972) The Last House on the Left 8/10
I’ve always respected Wes Craven immensely for both influencing the genre as a whole and also, always having fun with making the films he wanted to make. This film forgoes a lot of traditional horror filmmaking and just filmmaking in general. It doesn’t attempt to conceal anything to build tension. Quite frankly, it has the restraint of a snuff film. That style, berthed a whole new generation of exploitation horror movies.
(1953) The House of Wax 7.5/10
(1953) The White Reindeer 7/10
(1950) Sunset Boulevard 9/10
It totally brings a smile to my face to say this this is, yet again, another film that had to inspire David Lynch. It’s certainly film-noir but the melodrama itself is so creepily in-tune with the struggles of Hollywood actors and actresses.
(1949) The Queen of Spades 7.5/10
(1947) Black Narcissus 9/10
This film is absolutely breathtaking. For anyone who’s ever considered technicolor to look fake, blown-out and oversaturated, this is a shining example of it done right. It’s an entirely created set with gorgeous artwork. It’s not just in how it’s looks from an artistic standpoint but even on a technical level, Powell was able to blow up a studio space with fantastic, wide-panning shots. There is not a better looking film out of this decade.
(1946) Bedlam 7/10
(1942) Cat People 8.5/10
I actually consider this film to be one of the best early psychological-horror films. Masquerading as a b-movie of sorts, I surprisingly found a lot of depth in it. Simone Simon is a fantastic lead and even with the short runtime, I came to understand her character rather quickly. Tons of anxiety as well as repressed sexuality sort of hone her into this timid and frightened woman who brings her own fears to life.
(1938) They Drive by Night 8/10
This is a great fucking movie that totally embodies crime-noir. It reminds me a ton of early Hitchcock and for the 30’s, the narrative is spectacularly clean.
(1937) Song at Midnight 7/10
(1914) The Egyptian Mummy no rating/10 (just a cool slapstick early short)

2019.03.02 01:34 nextzero182 Some of the best films I've reviewed over the past two months

(2018) The House that Jack Built 9.5/10
In my mind, this is Lars Von Trier’s masterpiece and Matt Dillon’s best performance to date. It’s hands down the most fun, engaging, darkly humorous, disturbing, bleak and creative film I’ve seen of 2018.
(2018) Halloween 8/10
It’s extremely well-produced but still forces itself to break away from the obscured angles and macro shots to give us these raw, long follow-cam sequences. Really most of all though, it’s just fucking fun. I love that. I love that if someone wasn’t in to the more experimental, abstract films I put on my top lists of 2018, I can still confidently recommend this one.
(2018) Bird Box 8/10
I found it to be a much needed refreshing take on the apocalypse/post-apocalypse genre. The creature design in this film is so incredibly unique and almost intangible at points.
(2018) Venom 7/10
To me the strongest horror elements of the "superhero genre" or whatever have been with Venom and Carnage. Unfortunately the horror isn't played out much here. It's fun and entertaining though.
(2017) The Bar 7.5/10
I thought this film was such a pleasant balance of violence, horror and humor. I’m a huge fan of Alex de la Inglesia simply based off his film The Day of the Beast but I actually didn’t realize this was his work until afterwards. The characters and dynamics between them are really where this film shines. There’s some tropes and forced types of personalities but it all just works. The highlight for me was the bum, just an absolutely hilariously insane and unhinged character.
(2014) Creep 7/10
Duplass’ performance here is incredible. The bathtub alone had me floored. He's the backbone of the entire film and without him, it just wouldn’t be that interesting. I don’t think the film is without some faults, some of which I initially was stuck up on. The protagonist makes some somewhat illogical decisions towards the end but nothing that ruined the film entirely.
(2014) Dead Snow 2: Red vs Dead 7/10
It was the same type of fun, totally well-executed horror-comedy as the first one. It’s completely over-the-top, gory, violent and just in general does not tread lightly. I think it’s a great sequel man. It has its limitations but I’m happy with it.
(2013) Coherence 8/10
I genuinely found the events that transpire during this normal dinner party setting to be unsettling. The characters as well as dialogue are all excellent and not over-acted in the slightest. I normally hate shaky camera work but the hand cam shots provided some much needed depth to the small space. It’s a great little mindfuck.
(2011) You're Next 7/10
Adam Wingard directing and Ti West acting, already something special there.. This is a home invasion movie that was forced to switch things up, especially after The Strangers was released. Through some very smart comedic elements and perspective shifts, it ends up feeling unique in the home invasion sub-genre.
(2010) The Crazies 7.5/10
It actually feels like what everyone wanted M. Night’s The Happening to be. The pitchfork scene alone is one of the best horror scenes of the last decade. While the film does follow an arguably standard dystopian narrative, there’s way too much soul here to even compare it to the others.
(2009) Triangle 8/10
It’s a movie that’s strangely simplistic while being really complex. There’s a ton to be gleaned from the details and, outside of the exposition, I actually had the most fun simply pondering what the bigger picture was.
(2007) Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street 7/10
Sweeney Todd? More like Mean-y Todd…because he’s not very nice. The songs are catchy but for me, the real draw are in the aesthetics. Burton does a fantastic job at creating an old-world, gothic-London.Also, the ending is wonderful. I like it.
(2004) Shaun of the Dead 9/10
This movie is just wonderful. I find it hilarious on a personal level but also so intelligently funny that it could go down as one of the greatest horror-comedies of all time.
(1990) Gremlins 2: A New Batch 7.5/10
This movie is a ton of fun and also so representative of the 90’s in general. There’s a ton of campiness, a push for silly-over-scary and a blunt injection of pop-culture. It’s certainly worth noting that while engineered for the masses, it’s still pretty vicious for an arguably family-friendly horror film.
(1985) Re-Animator 8.5/10
It’s ultra-violent, perversely sexual even but the way fans revere it is what makes it so special. It’s just so fun and one of my favorite Lovecraft adaptations. If you’re into practical effects and body horror, this is a must see.
(1985) Day of the Dead 7.5/10
The last 15-minutes alone are just groundbreaking on a technical level. I mean there’s a beheading sequence that made me legitimately start smiling at how fluid and impressive the practical effects were. It’s a film where clichés aren’t even clichés but rather, firsts for the genre.
(1983) Cujo 7/10
This film is pretty straightforward but excels in the technical work as well as everything involved in training that big, sloppy St. Bernard Cujo. I mean I’m not fucking around when I say that dog is the best actor in this film and that isn’t even an insult to the other actors.
(1953) House of Wax 7.5/10
This is an absolute classic and iconic role for Vincent Price. It’s definitely dark and horror focused but it’s also colorful and accessible. Phyllis Kirk happens to be a very capable female lead and the whole production just works.
(1952) The White Reindeer 7/10
I don’t think I’ve ever seen a Finnish horror film before but this was great. It’s super mellow but builds into this atmospheric horror-fantasy.
(1950) Sunset Boulevard 9/10
It totally brings a smile to my face to say this this is, yet again, another film that had to inspire David Lynch. It’s certainly film-noir but the melodrama itself is so creepily in-tune with the struggles of Hollywood actors and actresses. It’s almost as if acquiring fame is accepting a deal with the devil.
(1976) Carrie 8.5/10
I actually think it’s Stephen King’s darkest take on childhood. It ends up being pretty cruel and foreboding throughout. I love Sissy Spacek, she just really embodies this role and it’s one of those performances that I couldn’t see anyone else playing.
(1949) The Queen of Spades 7.5/10
This is a wonderful little supernatural tale of greed with an intoxicating visual component. Dickinson managed to capture the both literally figuratively cold vibe of imperialistic Russia and I think that’s one of the main components that makes it stand out to me.
(1947) Black Narcissus 9/10
This film is absolutely breathtaking. For anyone who’s ever considered technicolor to look fake, blown-out and oversaturated, this is a a shining example of it done right. It’s an entirely created set with gorgeous artwork. It’s not just in how it’s looks from an artistic standpoint but even on a technical level, Powell was able to blow up a studio space with fantastic, wide-panning shots. There is not a better looking film out of this decade. This film so elegantly says what I believe religious detractors have a hard time putting into words. There’s a huge portion of the movie that’s confronting sexual temptation and it’s an aspect that’s woven into every single frame of this film. I mean that literally.
(1946) Bedlam 7/10
This film is hugely influential and may just be the first film to explore the horrors of being accused of insanity. It also happens to be pretty diverse between horror, cruelty, meta-humor and wholesomeness. I really loved it. Boris Karloff is solid as always but Anna Lee is the one who really steals the show.
(1942) Cat People 8.5/10
I actually consider this film to be one of the best early psychological-horror films. Masquerading as a b-movie of sorts, I surprisingly found a lot of depth in it. It also happens to be beautifully shot. The lighting and shadows are all wonderful. In particular, the scene in the pool had me drooling. There’s something special here.
(1938) They Drive by Night 8/10
This is a great fucking movie that totally embodies crime-noir. It reminds me a ton of early Hitchcock and for the 30’s, the narrative is spectacularly clean.
(1937) Song at Midnight 7/10
I wasn’t really looking forward to watching a 2-hour long remake of The Phantom of the Opera and thankfully, Song at Midnight managed to really set itself apart from the original, even more-so than many US remakes. I’d consider it more of a reimagining, a film inspired by the original. Overall, it’s not the easiest watch but I enjoyed it and I also believe it’s China’s first horror film, which is huge.

2018.10.04 02:28 guibiscuit 🗣📣Reddit's Drag Race AllStars 1 - Episode 3: "RDR Elections" PART 2

“Fuck Up” by Tana Mongeau plays as Bianca appears, catwalking down the runway. “Ayo sis!” she says, greeting the (lowkey almost) empty panel of judges.
.
.
.
.
.
“Angie Apathy, my favorite RD3 queen, how are you?”. “I’m good! Thanks for having me back!”
.
.
.
“And Catheterina Dick… You’re judging! Happy now?”. “Actually… not that much”
.
.
“WHATEVER. And Capr-” Bianca says before abruptly stopping with a sad look on her face. “Oh, she’s… too busy”. The camera cuts to the panel: a bunch of lit candles and a picture of Caprice on last week's panel sits by her empty spot. In Memorian appears on screen.
.
.
“Ladies, this week the girls were asked to prepare us a campaign video while portraying a new character AND reading one of their fellow sisters. On the runway, get ready for our very own Night of a 1000 Burtons!”
.
.
.
.
.

“Start your engines, and may the best politician, win!”

“Angelique, Anuchin Bloom, Lucy Fur, Panthera Leo, Sonya Ponya and Rain… You represent the tops and the bottoms of the week
But before giving critiques, I wanna hear one thing: Who should go home tonight and why?
.
.
.
.
.
Angelique: The queen I would send home is the queen who has consistently missed deadlines... so I'm sorry don't take this personal but I'd send home Bianca Bibancos
.
.
“Haha, so funny”
.
.
Anuchin: Honestly, this question is very hard to answer at this point. I don't see any girl doing extremely bad that would justify them going home. But, there's one person I know that can rock this competition and I feel has not been giving it her all. I’m gonna say Lucy. I’m not saying this to be shady, I just hope it will light a fire under her and allow her to shine like she should.
.
.
Lucy Fur: First off, fuck you Anuchin. My decision is based on the work that’s been submitted so far and the conduct I’ve observed from the contestants, both on and off camera, which I take seriously as a professional. Based on that, I’ve come to the conclusion that having a short-ass name is fucking stupid and Rain should get the fuck out.
.
.
Panthera: This was really tough because I think everyone here is amazingly talented. It hurts me to say that I think Annie should go home. I think she is an awesome queen and super talented but last week wasn't her best week and it was supposed to be something that she excels at... and she didn't? Maybe this week she will pull something amazing out of the bag and do really well - and I hope she does! But, solely based off of what I've seen so far, Annie is my answer.
.
.
Sonya: "This is a tough choice but I'm going to pick rain, she's just holding up the rear
.
.
Rain: WHORES.
“That’s it?” Bianca asks
“Send them all home” Rain answers.
.
.
“Alright, now let’s talk about the submissions” Bianca continues.
First of… Angelique: “Angie, through a dumb character, you made a very smart ad. A lot of people went the ignorant route and you really went above and beyond, went in a direction no one else took with the country bumpkin, and it was so referential and clever, which is what this challenge was made for. You are one of the few queens that had a nice balance of backstory and smear campaign. You showed off your hilarious character, and then you went IN on Korn AND provided the receipts! This ad was simply iconic, and I have no objections to your runway either. You took two basic looks and sold them with a strong concept, and I bought it. Your wig and accessories provided so much for the look, the braids, the belt, the rhinestones, all so fierce. I’m glad you had the outfits you did because you let them take background so you could show off the concept. I appreciate all of it. I don’t think the trenchcoat was entirely necessary but I wouldn’t call it unnecessary either, I understand why you had it to relate back to the original character, then you went in your own direction and you were a boss bitch. You showed us tonight why you’re the queen and I’ll gladly bow” begins Cathe.
“ I am starting to really count on you to give me a polished, fully realized performance when it comes to comedy, and you didn’t disappoint me in your ad. Your jokes were well timed and paced, and you managed to translate a big personality into a character outside of your drag persona, without dropping into the valley of trying too hard. The Fox News, bible belt Dixieland redneck is a bit of an easy target, but you are very smart at selling what isn’t exactly a new archetype in a way that read as fun, and more fresh than it probably should have. On the runway, it was an outside of the box choice to do “Abraham Lincoln:Vampire Hunter”, and I love a good weird/obscure reference. However, when you are doing a look that very obviously telegraphs a reveal, I was hoping to see something a bit more exciting than a catsuit. The details (the rhinestones in the braid, the weapons, the mug) and the presentation were way more interesting than the garment itself. That being said, I see you aiming higher on the fashion side, and attempting to serve looks as big as your performances, which I mentioned in week one. So kudos to you for trying to do just that, just keep working on polishing up the execution and detail, as you are again, headed in a positive direction” Angie says.
“This week, I’m not going to lie… I was scared for you. But hey! You proved me wrong! Your submission this week was really fun to read. Mary was an interesting character and your jokes landed, girl! The characterization was really on point, with the expressions and the little jokes that made the character weirder and weirder, and it all worked! On the runway, I think you did a good job for the most part. You pay a lot of attention to details which is always great and I think you have a good idea of what “Angelique’s aesthetic and style” is. The only thing I don’t care much about on your look is the catsuit itself. I think the makeup was good, the “vibe” you were selling was great and the pre-reveal was pretty, but the catsuit itself felt borderline costumey. Being costumey isn’t a bad thing by default, but being a catsuit with so many details like the leather belt and the skirt and the straps, it was almost like a weird superhero costume. But in general, you did really well this week: your performance was a shoot and your runway a toot. I see a different Angelique than the one I competed against on Season 2 and I like that!” Bianca finishes.
Next up, Anuchin Bloom: “I’ll be honest Anuchin, when I first read your character name and description, I was highly confused- and your skit cleared up that confusion for me. I had so much fun reading your ad, your smear campaign of Angie were by far the best reads of the night, I was letting out gut-busting laughter reading that. I hope you had as much fun writing that as I had reading that because I was straight up screaming from the Angelique horror film montage to the end of the ad. And something that makes this all the more impressive is that you had one of the longest ads, and you kept it entertaining the whole time. I think if I had a negative critique, it’s that you didn’t give as much focus to your character specifically, but it was still enough that we got the general idea and why we should vote for you, but I would have liked to see a little bit more backstory in the ad itself. On the matter of your runway, it was very quirky and very pretty- a great combination that most wouldn’t be able to pull off. I had a lot of fun reading that as well, I was mesmerized by the wig and the bubblegum pop, the makeup was beautiful, the dress was fun- great job overall. I wrote in my critiques for you for episode one that I didn’t get your bubbly, fun personality from your verse, but you definitely showed that this week and it was so enjoyable to see”, Cathe tells the queen.
“The overall effect of your ad was as gleefully zany as I always want to see from you. Please keep being this delightfully weird. You packed references to old shot on film porn, Lolo Ferrari (who I sadly already knew of without having to Google), horror movie music cues, proper varietals of wineglass and a pile of twists on Angie’s own quirks and jokes into a fairly short campaign ad. To be frank, the ad isn’t always as coherent/focused as it could have been, but it did succeed in making me laugh, and the pace was quick enough that the digressions didn’t last long enough to be bothersome. That said, I would have liked to see you pace yourself a tiny bit more, and give us a few beats to breathe between jokes. Pick your spots a bit more carefully, as when a submission has as many things packed into it as this ad does, it can feel a little bit like you are throwing everything against the wall to see what sticks. You are inherently charming, but don’t let that be the only thing holding your comedy together. On the runway…...I knew you were going to be the one to do “Mars Attacks”, as its the absolute best fit for your persona. It’s a good homage to the look of the film character, and you clearly made note of the mannerisms and movements to sell the Martian Girl. Using roller skates to get the motion just right was clever. Out of tonight’s more literal interpretations, you definitely did the homework to get the replica of the look as close as you possibly could, which is probably the best case scenario in going the safetaken directly from the film route.” Angie says.
“Anuchin, I laughed so hard reading your submission this week! From the character to the jokes, everything was on point! I really, really liked this, and I think this was the first time we’re seeing the Anuchin I paid to see: this weird, funny bitch! Your Angelique jokes were great, and if I need to criticize you for anything, it would be that I think your performance would benefit from more “actions” in between lines, so it doesn’t read like a couple of big walls of text with some movements/something happening in between. But that’s me reaching for something, because I believe you did an amazing job this week. Your runway was cool and it was totally you. The roller skates were a nice touch. This week you were on fire!” Bianca says.
What about Lucy Fur: “ Lucy, this week you did really good. You were concise and to the point, which goes along with your badass HBIC character. Your “these kids today” vibe flowed really well with the ad, you took things that were based in fact and heightened them to turn them to your advantage. I think my only very slight setback with this is that I felt you could have went longer, but I respect that you ended where you did- it kept the ad packed with material. I think maybe I just wanted it to never end, so this isn’t a problem with it, it’s a compliment. You had so many fierce punchlines and slogans that made me either giggle or go “ooh bitch”. Your runway was pretty cool as well. I wouldn’t call the outfits themselves too outside of the box, but I understand that they were better subtle considering the concept with the painting, which I thought was very smart. I appreciate your makeup so much, and I do enjoy both of your looks, I just think your outfit sort of got reliant on the concept and gags, instead of using them to enhance the look. The outfit certainly can take a backseat to the gags sometimes, but I think the concept has to be over-the-top for it to fully make up for it, and the reveal and the painting were great gags, but not enough to fully carry a look, in my opinion. However, you still did well in every area of this challenge” says Catheterina
“I knew exactly who your character was going to be within the first 2 sentences, and in the context of this challenge, that is not a bad thing. A lot of people struggled with too much set up this week, and I really appreciate how pared down and structured this ad was. No unnecessary details, no long waits for punchlines. You showed and told us just enough about Ruthie for us to know who she is and what she plans to do, kept it funny and kept it moving. You were also the only person who chose a more butch character, which probably helped a few of the dustier of the lesbian trope jokes to land a bit better than they otherwise would have (e.g the u-haul/immediate move in joke is probably older than I am…..very ancient). After reading a ton of housewives and Palins and various other more femme characters, it was a nice change of pace, even if a few of the jokes were a bit dated. On the runway, I was hoping a few people would skew on the live action side, and the waifs in “Big Eyes” are a strong visual. This is another look that can’t help but telegraph a reveal, but the 2 looks were very different, and served as a miniature recreation of the narrative of the film, without recreating the characters in exact replica. That was a smart choice. My one main quibble is that the doll iris lenses and exaggerated eye used for the first look kind of painted you into a corner (pun not intended) for the second one. The reveal would have had a bit more impact if the make up was also designed to transition as well” Angie says.
“Lucy, I think you delivered a strong and consistent performance this week. It was fun to read and the flow of your scene was really good. I agree with most of the stuff the other two judges said, so I’m no sure what I can say to add to that. Nice job! You finally woke up, and this was definitely your week!” Bibi adds to what the 2 guest judges said.
Now, Panthera Leo: “You had a fairly simple ad, and it worked well for you. The comedy was there, your character made the reads work, and you’re the only one to juxtapose your backstory and your smear campaign, which I really appreciated- it was a risk, or an out-of-the-box thought, that paid off in my opinion. However, I do take issue with the fact that you continuously went back to one joke. I get that you were using this as an ad for your book, but you could have provided much more characterization other than being skinny. Your tagline was great, don’t get me wrong, but there are other ways to show your character is superficial. Talk about your plastic surgeries, it would have been a perfect opportunity to call Annie ugly (in a comedic way of course as she’s very pretty). Again, you took a risk by bringing Annie’s appearance into it, but you did it in such a superficial way, you could tell it was all satirical. You used what could turn into straight-up rudeness and turn it into silly jabs, and that’s a plus. Your runway is both pretty and spooky, the outfit itself is basic and an easy concept to go towards, but it’s not a bad runway by any means. The veil and the crown were both bizarre, again an obvious choice but that doesn’t make me not like it, I just simply think you could have elevated the whole thing further, especially your presentation. It’s Tim Burton girl, go hogwild with a cunt psycho bride to add the extra spook, in fact I think if you had went further with the presentation it would distract from the underwhelming parts of the look. However, again, still a pretty look, and a funny ad, I just advise you to push your creativity further and let your mind wander to the weird corners of your brain because I know you’ve got it in you” Cathe begins
“Ad wise the character you created and her bio were humorous, and I can totally see how an unqualified businessperson would run for President to shill more of their useless crap. However, I wish your actual ad had as many little punchlines and jabs as your bio did. Pamela didn’t have a lot to do throughout, and you made her a little bit one note by over relying on the exercise program advert joke a bit too heavily. You had a lot of room for more surgery jokes, her various self serving promotional schemes, there were a lot of possibilities I felt were a bit underutilized. I would have loved to see more of the “colluding with Russians….for vodka” or “books for needy housewives vacationing in Malibu” quick one liners, because they were quite funny, just not as frequent or as evenly distributed as I would have liked. On the runway…...fuck yes, Vampira. Again, I love a good weird reference, and a less obvious choice, and I see how a Corpse Bride mash up could be a totally workable idea. The actual dress was written well enough, but the presentation didn’t sell me either character. I understand why you would want to go cleaner and more simple, as Tim Burton’s aesthetic is a bit Victorian and a bit busy overall. That being said, when the clothing is less elaborate, I would have liked to have seen a bit more personality on the runway, as the intersection of characters you chose allowed for a bit more drama or camp, whichever you prefer. Without context of the theme, this reads as a nonspecific gothic bride more so than a Tim Burton reference. You usually bring tons of personality without even trying, so perhaps this is a more muted week due to your mood, since you mentioned not being in the greatest headspace in the confessional” Angie continues.
“Panthera, you had some strong moments and funny jokes, but I felt like your bio was funnier than the actual video. You had some great jokes, don’t get me wrong, but overall it felt very… “ok”. The exercise program advert joke that Angie mentioned was something I also felt it was a bit off, and I think that you missed the mark this week as you didn’t really put up your best work. I know how funny you can be, but your campaign sounded like it was relying on some jokes too much and actually lacking in developing who your character is and the campaign part. Too much of it was based on the bio you wrote, y’know? But I don't think you did a shitty job this episode as you had comedy bits and an interesting idea and I actually laughed at some points. This just isn't your strongest performance. You had the comedy, you just didn’t fully worked your idea out. The runway was good, there’s that.” Bianca says.
Next up, Sonya Ponya: Sonya, I felt like you started off strong and political, and I was ready for the comedy to come in...and I was waiting for it...and I saw attempts, but the few and far inbetween jokes never really landed. I appreciate creativity, so props on that, but it needs to still fit the challenge. You didn’t use almost any basis to read Anuchin on and spin things from there, other than the kebab which was an underwhelming moment, you just said a ton of random things and the comedy was just not there. In the end you went off the rails, and again I appreciate the effort, but when you take risks, the substance has to be outstanding for it to pay off, and the substance here was a bit generic. However, the runway certainly paid off. It was so conceptually stunning, oh my God I’m in awe of it. The colorblocking to such an avant-garde look was also much appreciated, the hair and the nails matching, the bloody dress, the cones all over, and the presentation really gave that Beetlejuice vibe. The googly eyes felt a bit unnecessary to me, but it doesn’t take away from the presentation or stunning look. It proves to me that you can provide substance to your creative, outlandish risks, so I simply wish I had seen that in the smear campaign” Cathe says.
“I enjoyed Bademoiselle’s mini bio,as a bit of a silly tribute, Mario/Wario style thing was certainly a novel and cute idea. The first half of your ad didn’t really deliver me an evil character per se, or one that was particularly power hungry. If anything, you skewed towards a rather safe, middle of the road series of sub in jokes, which would have read a bit funnier if you hadn’t set me up to expect a shadier, bitchier more maniacal character. Moving into the second half….the skewered meat joke was funny, but I did recognize it from another post of yours on this sub. Where this really gets going to more of the direction I wanted to see is when you set up Anuchin as merely a pawn of Bianca (who is a way easier personality to make a comedic villain, smart choice) and hoist your surprisingly placid character into a mess made by her own overconfidence. It wasn’t what I expected, and it was hands down the funniest part of your ad for just that reason. On the runway, a Beetlejuice/Barbara mash up is an interesting choice, and I appreciate you not going super literal. I wish there was a bit more detail on the dress and wig other than “like the one ~character~ wears in the film”. As you are blending 2 characters, more detail would let me better picture the mash up you created. That said, your presentation was great, and it definitely sold me more than the garment itself, and went a long way toward filling in the description gaps. It’s clear you’ve watched “Beetlejuice” carefully, as the silliness and playful giving up on scaring anyone was very in character for Barbara in the film. You sold your look well, and that definitely helped” Angie says.
“Sonya, I’m gonna start of by talking about your look: it’s super cool. The presentation slayed me and I think it’s a very nice look and a great interpretation of the runway theme. I love the skirt, I love the boots, I love everything about it. I’m just not really in love with your campaign here. While you did have some good jokes (like the Carol one and the end of the skit), I think you needed to develop the entire thing a bit more. Lord knows how happy I was when I saw your submission was only two pages long in comparison with some queens with their 6, 7 pages, but in your case I think you could’ve worked it out and used more of the gimmick and the direction you took the scene (the “darker” approach was a really interesting to me) if you had a longer submission. This is in no way a “WORK HARDER, PROVE TO ME YOU WANNA BE HERE” type of critique, rather a “I was buying what you were selling until it ended so abruptly”. So yeah, you had some good jokes and I liked the concept, but I wasn’t very happy with the way you developed the scene. Also, I know this was never a restriction so I can’t blame you for that but I think that basing this new character off Mademoiselle wasn’t the most creative or interesting direction possible. Even if it had been a generic trope re-interpreted and rewritten as your character (like I’ve seen on other submissions), I think that it would’ve been a less “meh, whatever” choice and a more interesting one. While I get the effort and the characterization, it would be similar if I had just played a character based on another queen as an easy way out” Bianca says.
Less but not least, Rain: “I’m lukewarm towards your ad. It wasn’t bad by any means, but it really had no strong points either. You had a creative concept for your character, which I appreciate, but I think you reeled it in too much. Nature-obessed? I would make the bitch appear as a dirty hobo, instead it was all very stern and held back. The comedy was not very present, and your reads of Christina were very basic. Her insanity provides so much material to work with, so I would have enjoyed if you had went for an equally insane character, and made your reads insane. I had a lot of fun reading your look, though, it was very campy- but compared to the rest of these girls who went for some kooky shit, it really does not stand out. I understand the line of thinking that you would tone it down to contrast everyone else’s outlandish looks, but toning down both the runway and challenge performance makes for an underwhelming week. The look was not bad by any means, if you had a great skit the runway would not hold you back at all, but while you didn’t flop neither the challenge nor runway, you really didn’t have any standouts there either” Cathe says
“If you go for comedy in a big broad style, you need to commit to the somewhat offensive ridiculousness of it all and go a bit over the top. Arya Delight gives you a lot of material to play with and subvert the coded language and insane conspiracy theories of various eugenics/white supremacist assholes to make that look even more idiotic than they already are. I don’t think you completely missed the boat, but a lot of the first ⅔ of the ad kept hitting the same “Make America Beautiful” joke beat, only to pay off wonderfully in the delightfully daft and creepy last few paragraphs (the increasingly creepy “reads”, herd of transformations, Christina soon among them, the swinging lamp). I wish I hadn’t had to wait so long for the ad to hit a funny, manic stride. On the runway…...it's near impossible to fuck up a literal homage to Michelle Pfeiffer as Catwoman, iconically all craziness and slink. So while I like it, and think the look and presentation was well executed, it was a very safe choice, particularly for someone I know can make much riskier fashion/look choices pay off” Angie says
“I think you lost some cool opportunities to make your submission funnier as Angie pointed out already. It took too long to hit a “funnier” side and, in general, your comedy was… not great. Just like with Lucy, there isn’t much left to be said, everything I thought was already said by the guest judges, so all I can tell you is that you needed to go bigger on the character and how she acts in a way that would be more entertaining. I know comedy isn’t your strong suit, but I just expected more for someone who just got off two amazing weeks and I felt like this week was a bit underwhelming with a rather safe runway and a scene that, to me, it didn’t really went anywhere” Bianca ends the critiques

2018.07.20 04:09 boopboopadoopity I made a transcript and TL;DR of the 12+ min Ian interview if you can't see the vid! :)

Scroll down for the TL;DR of takaways!! Quotes are interviewer, parentheses are me!

Video here! Give it a watch if you can - my text can't capture everything!

Condensed Transcript!
Who is KO's dad?
Ian: *laughs* I don't know... wouldn't be an action-adventure-pastiche without a secret father coming out of the shadows & changing everything for the main characters...
"Step out of shadows??" that mean it's Shadowy Figure??
Ian: *pretends to hem and haw* I don't know... could be... can't say...
Was this always planed to be the big mystery of the show?
Ian: Yes, we were running down the cliches from our favorite stuff, and having a single parent character and another that might-or-might-not be alive is one of the biggest so we gotta do that.
It has lots of references! What are some of the most influential?
Ian: The aesthetic of classic Sonic games, especially the Sonic CD intro done by Toei with amazing animator Kawaguchi - loved and used the artistic shorthand of making fists just solid balls of hand. Why draw more lines?
Any favorite deep-cut game references in OK KO?
Ian: ARMS is based on memories of Tom Guycot from Clash at Demonhead which I played when I was very little and thought he was really cool. Dynamite Watkins is several things - wanted to have an Action News reporter (Action52 game), style and powers from Ulala (Space Channel 5 game) one of my favorite rhythm games... she uses the power of dance to hypnotize people, while Dynamite has the power to make them tell the truth.
What are some superhero influences?
Ian: Sparko is influenced by an awesome cliche which I'm sort of cool with, the African-American electric guy (LOTS of possible references, it really is a cliche!), so I was like "let's just turn it into his skin"! Lots of times we just use the aesthetic of hero stuff, like when we introduced Cupid from Second First Date, he's basically Cable). Super gritty look.
Voiced by Diedrich Bader?
Ian: Yep!
So it's like perfect, he's been Batman, other superheroes too. Perfect. (Ian agrees)
Have you ever considered an OK KO comic book?
Ian: Oh man, I would love to do one. We have so many ideas too. We would want to make it the best for that medium - when we made the video game, Capybara Games interpreted it so differently. It was built as we were building it in the show, we said don't change it to be closer to the show as it was produced. So if we ever did a comic book I would want to change the world, character designs, even story to be more faithful to comics so it's not a cheap tie-in!
Speaking of voices, what was it like working with Jim Cummings (Boxman voice) who also did Robotnik from Sonic?
Ian: It's a lifelong dream for me! My favorite voice actor. He can do anything. Had him in the other day, needed 2 general-direction lines and he transforms and can do 10-15 ways saying them different and they're all hilarious. Hard to decide which take. I never intended to be a voice actor, just kind of backed into it - I only did Rad's voice because we ran out of money in the pilot!
So we got Robotnik influencing Boxman, any other cartoon/game influences?
Ian: For sure! Through the whole show, Loony Toons biggest influence in any cartoon I made. Those cartoons were my bible. Used to tape and play them back on slowmo as a kid. Ideas from all over - for instance Raymond is like a sports robot but a romance, smooth don juan robot too...
Yeah he has roses and he eats the rose... super funny!
Ian: *laughs* Yeah! So we had "Plaza Prom" which is Raymond-centric. He comes out and challenges Rad to a dance off. Not only that, and there's crazy moves and Michael Jackson noises. He rips off his suit and under is a "Fat Elvis" suit, specifically fat Elvis, and says *sing-song voice* Rock-a-dooo! So for one, not many people are into Rock-a-Doodle, (animated movie where a rooster leaves farm to become a rockstar) but then a group of chickens swoon and say "Oh, Ray Ray!" - direct reference to Swooner Crooner (Merrie Melodies animation) from Frank Tashlin, we had to put that in.
Next question - who's KO's father?
Ian: *laughs* Hmmmm, hmmm.... hm hm hm...
Almost gotcha! Ian: Very close! *laughs*
We have to talk about this - the crossover with Captain Planet with original voice actors. Talk to us about that!
Ian: So we work for CN which is owned by Turner who created Captain Planet, so we said "Can we do this?" and they were like "Yeah, sure." So easy! Permission was so simple, everything else was the hard part. But seeing it all come together was fun because of original voice actors. For me, meeting LeVar Burton (Kwame voice, famous actor)... I was truly over the moon. What's so awesome - when he got in that booth he just switched to Kwame, it was like Kwame never went away.
Then Captain Planet's voice came back too right?
Ian: David Coburn - that was the best part because he was one of the last to record. He looked at the lines and really connected with them, told us he thought he knew how Captain Planet would say this, because he understood what we were trying to say. I think he had seen people make fun of Captain Planet and seeing those lines he saw we weren't trying to make a joke of it, we were trying to say something. So he helped us craft that final speech that he says - people were uploading just that clip saying "He's really dropping some knowledge!"
Well thanks for coming, just one more thing, please look the camera and sayyyy... Who is KO's father??
Ian: *laughs* KO's father is.........just kidding!
That was the best, thanks again!

2017.12.13 18:00 daprice82 Wrestling Observer Rewind ★ Apr. 20, 1998

Going through old issues of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter and posting highlights in my own words. For anyone interested, I highly recommend signing up for the actual site at f4wonline and checking out the full archives.
PREVIOUS YEARS ARCHIVE: 1991199219931994199519961997

3-30-1998 4-6-1998 4-13-1998
  • We start with all the crazy behind-the-scenes turmoil in WCW, as about a dozen different stories are brewing. Despite their dominance for the last year and a half, Dave seems to already be seeing the writing on the wall, saying that these sort of issues are what crippled the once-thriving NJPW during the 80s.
  • The biggest story is the future of Ric Flair in WCW. Flair had been announced to appear on Thunder last week in an angle where he would reform the Four Horsemen, which would include Bill Goldberg, himself, Lex Luger, and likely Dean Malenko (but Dave offhandedly mentions that Malenko is trying to get out of his contract so it might not have ended up being him. More on that in a bit). But Flair had already made plans to go see his 9-year-old son Reid wrestle in his amateur wrestling competition. Flair insisted he had gotten the time off cleared months ago but Bischoff disagreed and was furious when Flair didn't show up and was talking about firing or suspending Flair. A few days later at Nitro, Bischoff held a backstage meeting with the wrestlers. Bischoff has already got a lot of heat for firing Sean Waltman for no good reason and for essentially being an asshole to everyone in the company other than Hogan. Bischoff even recently admitted that he had become an asshole after his friend DDP confronted him about it and promised he was going to try to be nicer to talent. He then went on to give a speech completely burying Flair, saying that everyone knows Flair isn't a man of his word and promising to make an example of him. Dave thinks it would be insane for them to fire Flair, since that would be handing WWF a huge coup. WCW's website was given word to remove all references to Flair (this turns into one of the biggest ongoing stories of 1998).
  • Flair's future isn't the only one in question, as several other WCW wrestlers are also wanting out. Chris Jericho, Dean Malenko, Eddie Guerrero, Meng, Scotty Riggs, and Scott Hall were all backstage at a recent ECW show, mostly just visiting since the 2 promotions were in the same town. Malenko and Guerrero were openly talking to people in ECW about wanting out of their WCW contracts, which end in Nov. 99. Malenko in particular has his lawyer working on getting him out. Chris Jericho's contract expires sooner and he also wants out. Then there's Chris Benoit, who's contract also expires in Nov. 99. Paul Heyman wants Chris Benoit in ECW more than anyone because he wants to make him the ECW champion and believes he can make Benoit a superstar. WWF is also interested in Rey Mysterio Jr. who's contract is up in a couple of months, but given how much WWF has squandered smaller guys (including turning Taka Michinoku into a joke), it probably wouldn't bode well for Mysterio in WWF.
  • As for why Scott Hall was backstage at the ECW show, it was near where he lives and he was visiting his friend Justin Credible. When Hall was backstage, he was confronted by Shane Douglas, Bam Bam Bigelow, and Chris Candido, all of whom had well-known problems with Hall back in the WWF days. It was said to be a tense situation, with Douglas in particular getting in Hall's face and screaming at him and Bigelow backing him up, saying they didn't want him in the ECW locker room. Hall eventually called a cab and left after a few minutes, and as he was leaving, Francine yelled at him to get in line and buy a ticket like the rest of the marks. This led to a funny moment where Tommy Dreamer then walked in the room as Hall was leaving and, not aware of the tense situation that was happening, jovially offered Hall a ride home.
  • WWF finally ended WCW's 83-week ratings winning streak with arguably the hottest 2-hour show in company history. WCW has been producing stale TV for the last month, while WWF has been riding an incredible wave of momentum and they've been closing the gap with WCW for weeks. This week, Raw set multiple ratings records, highlighted by Steve Austin challenging Vince McMahon to a match, with Austin having one hand tied behind his back. I expected Dave to have more to say about this.
WATCH: Steve Austin (with 1 arm tied behind his back) vs. Vince McMahon on Raw
  • Memphis wrestling returns to its traditional live Saturday morning TV spot this week with the first episode of the new Power Pro Wrestling promotion. Live wrestling has been a tradition on Saturday mornings in Memphis dating back to the 1960s until the demise of USWA last year. The idea is to only run shows within a 100 mile radius of Memphis. Dave recaps the history of Memphis wrestling before diving deep into the latest on all the legal issues. XL Sports is suing Larry Burton, his wife and son, Jerry Lawler, Stacy Carter (Lawler's girlfriend), an attorney that USWA used, Barry Bloom (sports agent), other assistants and TV people, and even Jerry Lawler's mom, who held a minority interest in USWA. This is a loooooooong story and it all gets really messy and complicated but it's also super interesting. I'm leaving out a TON of stuff here. Anyway, XL Sports paid $1.1 million for 55% of USWA (immediately after Lawler had just bought Jerry Jarrett's half for less than $200,000). XL Sports claims Burton and Lawler fudged the numbers to make the company look more valuable on paper than it actually was. Burton himself is an interesting story, as it turns out he has at least 22 known arrests under various names all over America, many of them for violent crimes, but also some financial and fraud charges, including trying to use someone else's social security number to receive death benefits. He met Lawler in 1993 and even was occasionally called in to the WWF to do favors (Dave says Burton was one of the people who helped set up the area where Roddy Piper and Goldust had their backlot brawl at WM12). Dave goes into a ton of detail on all the meetings leading up to the sale, WWF and Vince McMahon's pretty significant role in it, ECW's small role, and all the ways that Burton pretty obviously lied his ass off to defraud these people. TL;DR - Larry Burton was an absolute fucking snake and Lawler was...probably complicit, but I guess it couldn't quite be proven in court. But seriously, this one paragraph isn't really doing the story justice, it's one that's worth going to the archives and reading in full if you're into this sort of legal mumbo jumbo.
  • TV-Asahi in Japan did a weird thing when it came to airing Antonio Inoki's retirement show. They aired a 2-hour show called Antonio Inoki: This Is Your Life with actors doing dramatic re-enactments of Inoki's life story in between airing clips of Inoki's famous moments and then highlights of him arriving to the arena for his final match and all that stuff. The presence of Muhammad Ali was heavily hyped but when they showed him, it was sad to see, since Parkinson's has done a number on the former boxer, with someone having to literally hold his hand and walk him out. It was made even worse when he stood next to Inoki, who basically doesn't age, and made Ali look even more frail and feeble. The show was capped off with the Inoki/Frye match, which was fine for what it was (a 4-minute worked shoot basically). Surprisingly, the show didn't do nearly as well in the ratings as everyone thought, which was a shock considering how much of a cultural icon Inoki is in Japan. (Sadly, I can't find the 2 hour Inoki show. But here's a short Inoki documentary that has some highlights near the end of the retirement show. Shout out to IQWrestler-39 for finding this the other day).
WATCH: Icons of Wrestling - Antonio Inoki
  • Dave talks about Mitsuharu Misawa's health. He turns 36 soon and has been wrestling at a high level basically his entire life, dating back to amateur wrestling as a kid. And in AJPW, missing matches for anything less than hospitalization is strongly frowned upon. As a result, Misawa's body is breaking down on him. He's currently working with serious neck and back issues, plus a broken finger and last week he suffered a broken kneecap and still didn't miss a show. Finally doctors have told him he needs surgery, which would cause him to miss 6 weeks and miss the rest of the Carnival Champion tournament, which he's heavily figured into the finals of. The tournament was already thrown into disarray when Akira Taue had to pull out due to a serious knee injury. So it's unknown for now if Misawa is going to have the surgery he needs or if he will keep working, but he's basically falling apart.
  • Sid Vicious won't be working in Power Pro Wrestling after a falling out with Jerry Lawler and promoter Randy Hales. Sid has a friend who is a 6'10 black guy and he wanted to bring him in and work an angle with him. The gimmick would be that Sid would bring the guy out in chains. Lawler and Hales pointed out how that might not be the best idea. Sid also wanted to help book the promotion and they turned him down for that too. So he walked.
  • Welsh wrestler Adrian Street may have had his career come to an end this week at an indie show in Alabama. He was taking a flying cross body but Street didn't have his footing and when the guy landed on him, it tore his knee to shreds. Street had major surgery the next day and the recovery is said to be anywhere from 12-18 months. Considering Street is almost 60 years old, this is probably the end of the road for him (nope! He came back and wrestled periodically until 2010, although not much).
  • Jake Roberts is reportedly working on an autobiography (never happened but man, I can only imagine the stories he could tell).
  • A promotion called Can Am Wrestling Federation is running shows in Calgary and Edmonton using several former Stampede wrestlers as the top stars. They also have a member of the Hart family on the roster, Teddy Hart who is Bret's nephew.
  • The Bushwhackers worked an ECW show this week, using the name Bushwhackin' Dudleys. They were only brought in as a one-time deal though.
WATCH: The Bushwhackin' Dudleys in ECW
  • Sandman and Sabu were suspended by ECW for a few days, causing them to miss the weekend shows. It apparently is due to a recent incident where several hotel rooms registered to them were trashed, causing all ECW wrestlers to be banned from the hotel. Others were involved too, but Sandman and Sabu ended up taking the heat and had to pay for the damages. They were only suspended for those few shows and have since already been brought back.
  • D-Von Dudley was injured over the weekend from "taking a nut shot a little too hard from New Jack."
  • On WCW Thunder, a fan jumped the barricade and grabbed Raven by the hair during his promo, dragging him out of the ring before he could be tackled by security. And a few days later, another fan jumped the rail at Nitro while Raven was cutting a promo in the aisle and tackled him. Security jumped in and pulled the guy off and held him down as the cameras cut away. Not a good week to be Raven (I'm pretty sure the first one was legit but I think they eventually made an angle of it. So I don't think the 2nd one on Nitro was legit).
WATCH: Fan attacks Raven on WCW Thunder
  • Jesse Ventura, who is running for governor, was in attendance at Nitro in Minneapolis. He was never mentioned or shown on TV, but he was all over the building shaking hands and kissing babies and whatnot. He also brought a camera crew with him to document it which WCW wasn't happy about but they ultimately allowed. There were crowd chants for Ventura throughout the show.
  • WCW Injury Update: Rick Martel is expected back in about 3 months after his recent knee injury. Hector Garza just had knee surgery and will be out until October. Randy Savage is expected to work the PPV but will probably have surgery afterward. Davey Boy Smith injured his knee recently but is still expected to work the PPV.
  • Hogan's new movie 3 Ninjas: High Noon At Mega Mountain was a spectacular bomb, opening at #33 in its first weekend. It got bad reviews too, but that's nothing new since all of Hogan's movies get bad reviews but none of them have opened this poorly before. (So on top of wrestling, I'm a history and political nerd also. Fun fact, back in 1978, a South Korean filmmaker named Shin Sang-ok and his actress wife were both kidnapped by North Korea. They spent 8 years living in North Korea, being forced to produce movies for Kim Jong-il. In 1986, they escaped and defected to the United States where they resumed their film career. Sang-ok directed and/or produced several American movies during the 90s, including.....3 Ninjas: High Noon at Mega Mountain.)
WATCH: 3 Ninjas: High Noon at Mega Mountain trailer
  • Ricky Steamboat has threated Ultimo Dragon with a lawsuit over the name Dragon, which Steamboat has apparently had trademarked for usage as a pro wrestler for years. So if Ultimo Dragon ends up changing names, that will be why (nothing ever really came of this).
  • WCW finally got around to releasing some Bill Goldberg merch and, to no one's surprise, it sold like crazy. Goldberg shirts alone counted for nearly 20% of the merch sold at Nitro last week.
  • As mentioned a few weeks back, there was a porn movie released called Nude World Order. Well, funny enough, there was even a small reference to the Observer in the film, although they gave it a different name "so as to not make my reputation any worse." Dave says he didn't even find out about it until after the movie was made and someone told him. Anyway, looks like it was successful because there are plans to do a Nude World Order II (man, I can't find either of these but this sounds hilarious).
  • Wrestlemania looks to have done around a 2.3 buyrate and is around 720,000 buys which would be the largest WWF PPV gross in history. Dave says a lot of the wrestlers will be getting some huge payoffs pretty soon from that show.
  • They did an injury angle on Raw with Chainz from DOA. The reason is because just before Wrestlemania, he showed up to work "in no condition to perform" and was sent home. He was almost fired but was spared since he's friends with Undertaker and was allowed to work his scheduled WM match. But now the injury angle was done to send him home for a couple of weeks, I guess as a suspension.
  • Earl Hebner is still in ICU after his recent brain aneurysm but is apparently improving.
  • WWF has talked about bringing in porn star Jenna Jameson as Val Venis' manager when he debuts. She has made a few appearances for ECW (she eventually appears in one of his taped vignettes but never live).
  • Shawn Michaels took part in a parade in San Antonio this weekend. As for his WWF career, it's basically on hold right now due to his injury. There's also a lot of behind-the-scenes problems with Shawn that need to be addressed before he returns. Now that they managed to convince him to do a job and got the belt off of him, they don't seem to be in a hurry to bring him back.
  • Steve Regal has signed with WWF, although he can't be used until his no-compete clause with WCW expires which is another 3 months. WWF is planning to challenge that. But they're not rushing to get him in the ring because they want him to lose weight and get back in shape first. Regal is good friends with Steve Austin and is expected to be put into a storyline with him, so they want him in top-notch main event condition (this doesn't work out so well for Regal).
  • Longtime jobber Scott Taylor is finally being given a gimmick. They will give him the nickname "Too Hot" and he will team with Brian Christopher, who will have the nick name "Too Sexy."
  • Here's a quote from Phil Mushnick about the recent New York Times story about pro wrestling: "Credit is due to The New York Times for its page 1 story last week, that revealed pro wrestling to be so pervaded with degenerate acts that it's no longer suitable for viewing by children. Pretty sharp observation, given that this story is about 15 years old. If The Times stays on top of things, it will be able to report that pro wrestling is infested with steroid abuse and other illegal drug use--a story that's about a dozen years old--and that pro wrestlers have this nasty habit of dropping dead or committing suicide at around age 30, a story that's only about 10 years old."
FRIDAY: more on the Ric Flair situation, WCW reacts to losing to Raw in the ratings by booking hotshot title changes, Spring Stampede fallout, and more...

Going through old issues of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter and posting highlights in my own words. For anyone interested, I highly recommend signing up for the actual site at f4wonline and checking out the full archives.

  • The issue opens with the death of American MMA fighter Douglas Dedge who died from brain injuries suffered in a fight in Ukraine. It's a long story but TL;DR as you can imagine, this isn't good news for the fledgling sport, which is already struggling to stay alive in the face of government scrutiny over the perceived dangers. Political opponents of MMA have been waiting for something like this to happen and they wasted no time in jumping on it. Even though it wasn't a UFC event, that hasn't stopped UFC from taking the brunt of the bad publicity. Dedge was punched into tapping out and immediately stood up after the fight ended, but then collapsed again. He went into a coma and never woke up, dying 2 days later. Former UFC co-owner Art Davie (who now co-owns K-1 America after UFC fired him) sent a letter to UFC and, conveniently enough, also sent the letter to Arizona senator John McCain and several cable and PPV companies, saying that MMA wasn't a sport and that UFC should be banned and even plugging his own new kickboxing promotion. So obviously, his motives for sending this letter are questionable to say the least (here's the video of the fight. Fair warning: you'll basically be watching a guy die).

  • Scott Hall has checked himself into rehab again, almost exactly a year to the date that he did it last time. Hall is expected to be gone for at least 30 days. Last year, WCW caught a lot of flack for continuing to promote Hall when they knew he wasn't going to be appearing at shows. This time, they didn't mention his name once on Nitro and are no longer advertising him for house shows. This comes just a few weeks after the death of Louie Spicolli, who was a close friend of Hall's. Dave also mentions that 2 years ago, around this same time, Hall was suspended by WWF for testing positive for marijuana on the same day he gave notice that he was going to WCW.
  • The Academy Awards, usually one of the top 2 or 3 rated TV shows of the year, aired head-to-head against both Raw and Nitro this week and yet both shows still managed to do strong ratings, which is phenomenal considering most shows get eaten alive by the Oscars. Basically every week or two, both Nitro and Raw seem to be setting ratings records and not even the Oscars seem to be able to slow them down. Interestingly enough, Raw actually won a quarter-hour segment in the ratings for the first time in over a year, but WCW still owned the night. But WWF is undeniably beginning to close the gap. In related news, a recent Raw aired on Tuesday because it was preempted by another show. That Tuesday episode of Raw, without facing Nitro competition, did a pretty monster rating also and has USA considering possibly moving Raw to Tuesdays, but it's still premature to speculate on whether it will actually happen. Besides, Dave says that if Raw moves to Tuesdays, WCW would likely just move Nitro to Tuesday also. One final note: these big time Raw ratings were for taped shows, which once again proves that taped vs. live has no bearing at all on ratings. (not sure if you've heard, but turns out wrestling was pretty damn popular in the late 90s).
  • Les Thatcher will be promoting a Brian Pillman benefit show next month and he's managed to do the impossible: bring WWF, WCW, and ECW together under one roof. WWF has agreed to send Steve Austin and Sunny to co-host the show (but not wrestle). WCW will provide the main event, Chris Benoit vs. Chris Jericho. And ECW is sending Al Snow vs. Chris Candido. The rest of the show will be various indie wrestlers. All the money will go to Pillman's family.
  • Eric Bischoff appeared on TSN's Off The Record show, mostly to respond to Vince McMahon's comments on the show the week before. While Vince came off charming, confident, slightly out-of-touch, and somewhat dishonest, Bischoff came off as far more open and honest, but also defensive and somewhat arrogant. Dave says that a lot of the wrestlers who have worked for both Bischoff and McMahon say that Bischoff doesn't seem to care about the wrestlers, while Vince at least acts like he cares even though most feel like it's just a facade and that Vince doesn't care about them either. Bischoff is far more blunt with his opinions and is less liked by his employees than McMahon. But those same people also say they trust Bischoff to be honest with them far more than they do McMahon. During their interviews, both men refused to admit to their obvious mistakes (McMahon when talking about the Melanie Pillman interview, Bischoff when he refused to admit in hindsight that firing Steve Austin was a mistake).
  • Other notes from the interview: Bischoff claimed that much of McMahon's success was because of the talent, not because of McMahon's alleged promotional genius. Bischoff pointed out how both Hogan and Randy Savage already had the gimmicks that made them famous before coming to WWF and in Hogan's case, he was already a huge international star from his years in AWA and NJPW. Or in the cases of gimmicks that really hit, it was usually the talent that came up with it (Bischoff noted Scott Hall's Razor Ramon gimmick, which was Hall's idea and was basically just his old WCW Diamond Studd gimmick with a Scarface twist. Bischoff claimed Vince originally wanted Hall to do a G.I. Joe-style gimmick). As for Vince's claim that WWF was winning everything other than the ratings war, Bischoff disputed that too, saying WCW is leading in PPV buys (true) and that WCW is outdrawing WWF in house shows so far in 1998 (also true, although it's very close). As for TV ratings, Bischoff said Tuesday afternoons, when the ratings come in, used to be exciting but now they're so used to beating WWF that it's not even a big deal anymore (he's gonna be choking on those words in a few months).
  • And still more notes from the interview, because paragraph breaks are helpful: Bischoff points out that Austin's gimmick was his own creation and that Vince's idea (The Ringmaster) flopped, but admits WWF deserves credit for pushing Austin to the moon when he got over. As for firing Austin, Bischoff said Austin was injured a lot and they felt like Austin wasn't being honest with WCW about his injuries, which is why they fired him. Said Austin in WWF is "a big fish in a small pond" and he wouldn't be a top star in WCW. Talks about meeting Vince in 1990 for an announcer tryout and admits he wasn't a good announcer back then. Bischoff also admitted that he came up with the NWO concept after seeing the NJPW vs. UWFI feud in Japan in 1995. Says Lex Luger was originally supposed to be the 3rd man and then Sting but he figured both were too predictable, so they made the decision to go with Hogan 4 days before the show (Dave calls bullshit on that one, since he knew 10 days before the show that it would be Hogan). Said WCW plans to do a Hogan vs. Hart angle sooner or later and that it won't be a U.S. vs. Canada angle like WWF did. Regarding rumors that Bret was going to show up on Nitro with the WWF title the night after Survivor Series, Bischoff said "absolutely not" and explained how the circumstances were different from the Madusa WWF women's title incident. Given Hart's contract situation and WCW's ongoing lawsuits with WWF, he said there was no chance whatsoever that Hart would have shown up on Nitro that night. When questioned about all of WCW's top stars being over 40, Bischoff name dropped guys like Mysterio, Guerrero, Benoit and Jericho but the host pointed out that they're all mid-card guys and not presented as main eventers but Bischoff sorta dodged the question. And finally, he said McMahon tries to portray the wrestling war as himself vs. big bad billionaire Ted Turner, but Bischoff says Turner's involvement in WCW is minimal and that he actually only talks to Turner maybe twice a year. Eric Bischoff says he is the one kicking Vince's ass, not Ted Turner. (Weirdly enough, I can't find video of Bischoff's interview, but here's a more in-depth recap with a lot of exact quotes):
READ: Eric Bischoff on TSN's "Off The Record" in-depth recap
  • Promo Azteca has taped a few demo shows with higher production values in an attempt to sell them to a network to air in the U.S. WCW is reportedly interested in airing it as their own Lucha show and is willing to pay for the extra production costs. On the flip side, WWF is interested in doing their own Mexican show called WWF Latino and have been negotiating with Televisa in Mexico about airing a show, but it's all in the discussion phases for now.
  • Giant Baba has finalized the deal with WWF for Vader to appear at AJPW's upcoming Tokyo Dome show. There have been discussions for a relationship beyond that but the problem is basically....Baba is cheap. He's still stuck in the old mindset of paying a headliner around $10,000 per week. But when you're trying to sell out the Tokyo Dome and you need to bring in special attractions and gate money is potentially in the millions, it takes more than 10K to get a top WWF star. Baba won't put any serious money on the table for big time foreign names, so WWF ain't biting.
  • A 19-year-old named Takeshi Morishima debuted for AJPW this week. Word is they're really high on him and he has great potential since he's a tall guy with a lot of skill and a judo background (he's mostly known for being one of the top names for NOAH and also a former ROH world champion. He retired in 2015 due to health issues but still helps run NOAH behind the scenes).
  • NJPW rookie Shinya Makabe (better known these days as Togi Makabe) suffered a broken leg in a match last week and will be out for awhile.
  • Randy Hales' new promotion Memphis Power Pro Wrestling debuted sooner than anticipated, holding their first show at Lady Luck Casino in Tunica, MS. It was basically the same group of people who have been working Jerry Lawler's casino shows for months, including Lawler himself, Sid Vicious, Bill Dundee, Tracy Smothers, etc. Despite basically being the exact same promotion as USWA, on paper, the company is 100% owned by Randy Hales, since he has no part in the ongoing legal mess from USWA. Speaking of...
  • The legal situation over the demise of USWA got messier this week. Mark Selker filed a 200-page lawsuit against Lawler and Larry Burton, alleging conspiracy to defraud. Vince McMahon and several others are also named in the suit as co-conspirators, but not as defendants. The suit claims McMahon lied to Selker about the potential value of USWA in regard to advertising revenue that the promotion could bring in.
  • A&E will be airing a 2 hour special called The Unreal Story of Pro Wrestling featuring interviews from many of the biggest names in the business (this is actually a pretty good documentary. I could only find it broken down into 7 videos. Here's Part 1 and it should automatically play the next part).
WATCH: The Unreal Story of Pro Wrestling (Pt. 1)
  • Many in WCW are expecting that Syxx will be brought back. Hogan and Kevin Nash have been talking about doing a storyline to use the real-life heat between them, including the firing of Syxx, to work an angle where Nash would headline against Hogan, which pacifies Nash somewhat since he's been vocally unhappy about being held below Hogan's level.
  • There's also rumors of Ultimate Warrior heading to WCW and it was even referenced by Mark Madden on the WCW Hotline. Dave says that 95% of the time, when you hear rumors about Warrior returning, they're false but in this case, there might be some truth to it. There's been talk of him working a couple of WCW PPVs in late 1998. Dave doesn't know if it's going to pan out but he says it'll surely bump ratings up in the short-term. Of course, Warrior has a known track record so he probably won't last in WCW long term, which is okay because aside from a short-term curiosity boost in ratings or buyrate for his first match, Warrior isn't good for much in the long run anyway.
  • ECW has sold out 15 consecutive shows in a row. Meanwhile, WCW had sold out 20 in a row, but that streak came to an end last week in Cincinnati.
  • Notes from the latest Nitro: Lodi suffered a legit broken ankle when catching Psicosis outside the ring during a spot. DDP vs. Sting was possibly Sting's best match in years. Chris Jericho was fantastic and hilarious yet again and has just been killing it the last few weeks. The Giant has been legitimately gaining a bunch of weight and when the announcers said he's 493, it's not an exaggeration.
WATCH: Lodi vs. Psicosis (injury at 3:36)
  • Kevin Wacholz, formerly Nailz in the WWF, is expected to join WCW and be part of the NWO and get a big push (nah never happened). Dave recaps the incident from 1991 where Nailz attacked Vince McMahon and choked him over his Summerslam payoff and then filed a police report claiming McMahon sexually assaulted him. Nailz then testified against McMahon in the steroid trial and was so obviously full of shit that it actually helped McMahon rather than hurt him. Dave seems befuddled that anyone would hire this guy and says, "Next thing you know, somebody can O.J. his girlfriend and get a job in this profession. Hell, they can do that and afterwards be considered for the Hall of Fame in this profession." Chris Benoit respectfully disagrees.
  • Latest update on the Jim Carrey "Man on the Moon" movie about the life of Andy Kaufman: Jimmy Hart will play himself but it's believed they may not actually call the wrestler in the movie Jerry Lawler because it's being produced by a Time Warner company. So they will tell the story of the wrestling angle, but it's believed it'll just be a fictional wrestler. WCW is actually pushing for Disco Inferno to get the part (Lawler later confirmed this in his autobiography but thankfully it didn't happen that way. Can you imagine?)
  • Notes from the latest Raw: indie wrestler Christopher Daniels, who wrestles as Fallen Angel, worked a dark match before the show. Rocky Maivia is great. Vince Russo appeared on TV as part of an angle with Sable and Luna Vachon.
  • John Tenta and Steven Regal are reportedly close to signing deals with WWF.
  • Shawn Michaels will work Wrestlemania but it's expected that he won't be wrestling again for a long time afterward (boy, I'll say).
  • Someone who attended the Eddie Gilbert memorial show put on by Dennis Coraluzzo writes in and talks about the show, specifically about Coraluzzo and Gilbert's mom cutting promos burying Paul Heyman and claiming he stole ECW from Gilbert. Dave responds and says he doesn't really think a memorial show is the classiest place to be burying people. He also says the story between Gilbert and Heyman over ECW is a lot more complicated than Heyman allegedly backstabbing Gilbert and stealing it and for Coraluzzo to simplify it to that extent is pure fiction.

2017.11.14 11:56 autotldr ‘One Tree Hill’ Cast, Crew Accuse Showrunner Mark Schwahn of Sexual Harassment

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 74%. (I'm a bot)
The cast members and crew of the drama series "One Tree Hill" have written a letter accusing former showrunner Mark Schwann of sexual harassment and offering support for their former colleague, Audrey Wauchope.
The cast members and crew, including stars Sophia Bush, Hilarie Burton, and Bethany Joy Lenz, wrote Monday that they "Have chosen this forum to stand together in support of Audrey Wauchope and one another" following statements made by Wauchope - a former writer on the series - on Twitter Saturday accusing Schwann of harassment.
In her Twitter comments, Wauchope described being subjected to frequent and unwanted touching by Schwahn, who she did not identify by name; seeing Schwahn show naked photos of an actress that he was having a sexual relationship with to staffers without the actress' knowledge; and Schwahn calling Wauchope's writing partner into his office to try to talk her out of getting married and into dating him.
All of the female cast members of One Tree Hill have chosen this forum to stand together in support of Audrey Wauchope and one another.
Many of us since have stayed silent publicly but had very open channels of communication in our friend group and in our industry, because we want Tree Hill to remain the place "Where everything's better and everything's safe" for our fans; some of whom have said that the show quite literally saved their lives.
For every male cast mate and crew member who has reached out to our group of women to offer their support these last few days.

2017.10.12 02:27 autotldr ‘Get them t**ties out’: Trainwreck Ben Affleck interview resurfaces online

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 39%. (I'm a bot)
BEN Affleck has offered an extraordinary apology after a former MTV host-turned-actress claimed he groped her breasts on television.
Actress and TV host Hilarie Burton was just 21 when she says she was groped by Affleck during an interview on MTV's TRL. The incident has shone a light on Affleck's other past bad behaviour - including a different, bizarre 2004 interview that saw Affleck encouraging another interviewer to show him her breasts.
In a Sunday morning junket interview to promote his film Jersey Girl, Affleck and Canadian TV presenter Anne-Marie Losique could be seen embracing each other, the TV host straddling the actor and writhing on his lap as he embraces her.
The pair continue their heavy petting as Affleck complements Losique on her "Firm breasts" and asks if she has a boyfriend "Back in Montreal."
Later on in the segment, Affleck makes an off-colour joke about the disabled.
The 2004 interview was filmed while Affleck was dating Jennifer Lopez, and first gained widespread internet attention two years later.

2017.09.02 06:03 911bodysnatchers322 Transcript of George Webb Video Series Part 141: "Hillary's Leakers, Hackers, and Henchmen" [@Georgwebb / #HRCRatlne]

  • >>>CONT
    • But I'm on to other things all right I didn't even want to go there till somebody put zzzzz
    • It's like you've been watching CNN for a year you've been watching the peepee dossier for a freaking year
    • And you have the right of the gall to come out here put Z Z Z you would watch it Wolf Blitzer and the whole CNN crew talk for a year about the peepee dossier--they're still talking about it!
    • They're still talking about how Fusion GPS is not at a operative firm
    • They're talking about fusion GPS still is it's not an operative firm
    • You have wasted a year of your life if you've been watching CNN
    • And all the commercials on top of it
    • So snap out of it Mr. Z Z Z!
    • Go watch CNN for another year and hope your little heart out that that peepee dossier comes true
    • It ain't coming true! It's not going true! It's not no matter how hard you hope! It's not coming true
    • I'm having too much fun no more fun I'm running out of battery
    • So so what really happened today was a crystallization of of the facts
    • Imran was running the car ring
    • The 10 locations were financed through the mortgages that's what happened the mortgages are going to become central to my case
    • I am going to go get the get the visas, because the visas will prove the shipping
    • And the visas will prove that this prosecution is trying to suppress
    • The prosecution is working harder than the defense on the defense
    • The prosecution has used all their power and leveraged to obfuscate I know I saw misspelled suppress in the last one I swear to God I stay hid suppress but suss press is fun too
    • Because there's it's a suspect suppression
    • So maybe "suss press" will Shakespearian old take off
    • So I need a thing. I'm missing all the good comments this is a good angle when I juiced against a like a tree in the background because I can read
    • So I'm sorry I had a little bit of fun here
    • But the ZZZ things just made you want to take off and run with that, because I just think of that peepee dossier
    • And yeah caps helps yes it does yeah
    • So this was fun
    • This would be normally when I would have a red wine
    • So I had I had fun with you all instead of having a red wine
    • But shake your lemonade hmm I wonder why that is maybe a distributes that could not find George Webb Sweiggart on patreon
    • That's interesting well if anybody here is in Washington DC, I would like
    • I love strawberry lemonade
    • I would like to learn that how to do it I have no idea what I'm doing
    • So thanks to everybody
    • Could not find George Webb Sweigert S W E I G E R T come out and in where are somebody here come out and in like this Alexandria or what I owe this
    • Ebola?
    • Ebola he's my new guy he's D bola he said yesterday I can't remember what Ebola said Ebola was saying or no it was Avery oh you forgot all about the seven mortgages and then I said that today about the seven mortgages for the Hawkshead it's like oh you're gonna forget all the crime ring you're gonna talk about seven mortgages you can forget the whole crime ring in Congress spy ring in Congress
    • So yeah
    • So if you think spending a year of your life on PeePee dossier and Fusion GPS with Veselnitskaya and Katsyv and Pinchuk that whole crime crew it's it's the tawdry issed cut most comical set of characters that you could possibly cobble together
    • It is laughable this just gets more laughable every day
    • So yes I am developing a southern accent again, because we're near the Virginia border I went to a Virginia fraternity KK what Kappa Alpha you thought I was gonna say the other one I was just kidding you all Kappa Alpha
    • Now let's I'm gonna throw it all on the table Kappa Alpha I think it's mostly a black fraternity, but that's not what it used to be
    • Kappa Alpha used to be kind of like more of a Robert E Lee fraternity
    • So most of my Kappa Alpha brothers out there are black I believe I'm probably confusing this with another a black fraternity but I don't think so maybe I am who knows
    • But I will just say this the ideal was being a Southern gentleman and we are here in the south close to the south anyway
    • All we have to do is go to Alexandria I think was that trip to Alexandria visiting all of Imran's pissed off landlady's about how he didn't pay that he'd break the toilet deliberately
    • So then he didn't have to pay rent for his first tenants they do it they have all these little tricks where they break shit
    • So they don't have to pay for their for their homies and all these landlady's out there man there's a ton of them in Virginia
    • As soon as your picture goes up in Ron then landlady's from Virginia are going to come across this river and hang you
    • You just got the one you just got the one that
    • With the 123 email the one that busted you on the 123 email that was just one landlady
    • that did that a holy torrent is coming as soon as they publish your picture Imran the holy torrent I'm not
    • I'm sorry I'm laughing I'm running out of battery anyway oh yeah
    • So I'll figure out the Patreon I am gonna do the patchy on I guess I I was hoping I'd get away with just saying I created it and then I could move on but apparently people wanted actually hooked up
    • So yeah Imran was breaking the toilets, and I'm not saying he threw Ted Lieu's phone in the toilet but who knows if he threw Ted Lou's toilet blackberry in the toilet
    • I mean if you think about it that is one great way to upgrade your BlackBerry
    • And if you had seeded the BlackBerry with let's say was a doped blackberry, you could give it to Ted Lieu for 10 minutes, you could then put in a plastic bag and throw it in the toilet, then Ted Lieu could honestly say I traded out my blackberry for an iphone
    • {{ 911bs: someone should try to get the serial numbers for ted's original blackberry that went in the toilet and then see if they can find any ips associated with it, and see where that traffic went. It could be they knew that phone was compromised, or thought it might be hacked by an unknown party / authorities / foreign intelligence agency and had to get rid of it }}
    • Now i've got a phone that I can give to somebody else I could just say I configured it for them
    • But I can then use Ted Lou's budget and say oh well I bought it from Ted Lieu
    • So you could basically fund a whole bunch a whole inventory of BlackBerry's
    • Toilet them really quickly toilet them in, toilet them quickly and then repurpose some dope them repurpose them in Congress
    • I'm not the one who threw my blackberry in the toilet don't take it out on me!
    • Ted Lieu threw the blackberry in the toilet because of all this shit going down in Long Beach
    • They were driving the cars on and off in Long Beach why does Rao Abbas have a name of NANKANO N A N K A N O?
    • Why does he need an alias? If his name is Rao Abbas why does he need an alias with NANKANO? Why?
    • Why? why? do you have--I mean I could see scrunchy... I could see "hey it's scrunchy--my name is scrunchy" but NANKANO that sounds awfully Japanese to me
    • Now we know Imran's dad had a very name similar to a guy named Muhammad Ashraf Awan that owned a be auto and imports in Florida right?
    • Jacksonville, Miami bringin' it in what? Bringin' in what? what? Toyota's
    • We're bringing in Nissan's Toyota's and Nissan
    • What year? 92
    • Not 93. Nope 92. Why not 93? Why don't you guys like 93? No 92 not 93 well no no no no 92 why 92 is 92?
    • Because 92 No GPS
    • 92 my homies can get in and out quickly with a key BOOPBOOP easy and easy out
    • Those are going to be my club cars. Those are cars for my homies okay
    • Now is Rabbas bringing those in? Or should I say Nankano? Is Nankano bringing those in?
    • Nankano: kind of reminds me of Kato. Remember when the Green Lantern [Hornet] or what was it.. Kat~~o! Nankanooo~!
    • Are our the cars here NanKanNoo~?
    • I'm here at A B Auto imports--that's not Awan brothers btw here in Miami
    • By the way it's not Awan brothers here in Miami oh oh and and then what was it Herb and Spice--no wait Fruit and spice there was another importer
    • Nankano! Are you here Nankano! Do you have any cars oh yeah yeah yeah yeah right over here I got about six hundred I just brought them in from Japan I got about six hundred ninety. Two Toyota's and Nissan's.
    • What's your job Nankano--you're in Florida right yeah I work in Congress oh right what do you do why don't I mean I could figure phones for Congress really and you work in the car business too got a lot of aliases, and a lot of aliases
    • What's going on has there been a picture published? Rao Abbas lately?
    • We're just going to quote a guy on the paper? Just quote a guy! Let's quote a guy!
    • Let's quote Rao Abbas Ramu needs to be quoted today does anybody ever drilled down a little bit on that?
    • Published a picture?
    • Might be a good follow-up activity for a journalist {{ Comma Luke }}
    • Where is Rao Abbas?
    • I called office of representative Deutsch
    • Can we talk to Rao? What what do you callin' this office?
    • I mean he's in insidegov I would just call in the office--don't hate me
    • <<> Here they're coming for you they're coming for you bro
    • Oh no no no that was just that was just that was just a I was just an ambulance it's Okay. Relax relax I thought they might be coming
    • So anyway I think the picture is crystallizing it's formulating it's developing very clearly
    • Now and I never said Imran was a drug dealer or anything like that I said they set you up sometimes with a bag of basmati get you going get your homies gon break the ice get it rolling then they get you into what they want to get you in
    • And and Rao is gonna be cars but always a car guy just like Imran
    • So anyway this went way longer than I wanted to
    • I really wanted to just talk about Shakespeare, believe it or not--this is all gonna be about Shakespeare!
    • I had a great conversation with Renate about King Lear and we uh we went at it
    • We went at it I mean I was Marlo Marlo Marlo and she was Francis Bacon Francis Bacon Francis Bacon member bacon bacon bacon
    • And what year was the transition and I said look we'll get into that later
    • She played the the daughter in Lear I think was Reagan was Reagan the daughter in Lear anyway
    • I found that Ehrlich Gloucester really was physically blinded but Lear wasn't physically blinded but Glouster was a foil for Lear
    • And his metaphorical blindness ...toward his kids
    • He didn't understand that some of his daughters loved him just as much as the other ones that were more sycophantic
    • Cornelia always with the love I love you dad I love you I love you I love you love you and then Reagan was more like I love you like salt
    • So the play actually comes from love you like salt
    • And the father was like I don't understand what that means salt is salty and yucky
    • So then she cooks him cooks for him for a month without salt
    • And he finally just explodes in a rage one day is this I must have salt in my food
    • Dad I love you like salt
    • Shakespeare
    • Who says they can don't we still use salt? Don't we still have sycophantic kids?
    • Is Shakespeare really not applicable anymore? Can you not see that our society is like King Leer right now
    • Maybe metaphorically blind to spy rings in Congress versus people trying to do the right thing?
    • Are we gonna just let shift and Schumer blind us all metaphorically with all their little CNN FUSIONGPS crap DoD crap for their little schemes their little pay-to-play schemes?
    • I say we lift the eye patch lift the eye patch see what's really going on
    • I know I throw a lot of stuff in a lot of people
    • Everybody says oh you just you out there doing your thing
    • The United States I love you like salt
    • Not so great to taste but try [going a month without the promises of our social contract (the Constitution)]
    • << video cut off so I added that bit >>
  • Equitable Powers of the Court - YouTube
    • Okay. Everybody
    • Lemonade really makes you hyper with too much sugar but damn bees whatever
    • So I want to I want to talk to you about one thing that I did this week
    • hello
    • First of all Melissa calls me from the last episode and she says George--I said first of all when she called I said is this ABC
    • She says no it's not ABC I said is it NBC?
    • She said no it's not NBC
    • I said is it CBS?
    • She said no it's not CBS
    • I said then it's all three? And she said you're right
    • I said this is all three NYC
    • So if you didn't remember of Melissa before you're gonna remember her now
    • Cuz Melissa again she's the one who set up the venmo account for me
    • She's setting up the patreon account for me because I have no idea what the hell it is, but she thought I was important
    • And my goodness gracious I do not care one whit about this stuff but a lot of people do and I just want it to stop
    • So I am putting Melissa in charge and I want Melissa--if you're listening I want you to keep all the money--I don't want any of the money I just want to stop people saying you need to set up a patreon account
    • That is my goal here
    • So if the money goes in Melissa ABC NBC CBS she's gonna get the money she is going to go on a worldwide tour
    • I'm sure I don't really know no Melissa this is this most wonderful woman who is just always just kind of inserts herself into the most crucial times to make this thing go
    • So thank you Melissa and the the beautiful thing about this is people say oh you're making this a Shakespearean drama
    • You're making this something it's not you're making this a you know Tolstoy novel with a thousand characters
    • I'm not
    • I am presenting to you the reality exactly as it is
    • This is Roman art this isn't Greek art
    • I would love to present the world in Greek art and say this is the ideal
    • But this is Roman art this is warts-and-all
    • I am presenting to you the people who present themselves to me and insert themselves and say they must do what they must do
    • And that is the truth here
    • Hey scrunch
    • So Melissa just called me and said you I need to help you you are impaired
    • You are impaired from too much lemonade you clearly need to go to citrus water
    • {{ 911: I really liked Sugar high George. You were punchy as F aaand hilarious. It's very evident you were altered though. }}
    • I had another friend say citrus water less belly fat more testosterone--that happened two minutes ago
    • No man boobs all that -- So so that's funny
    • So that's what's happening
    • That's that's that gets you up to date better than Kim Kardashian because Kim Kardashian is a scripted thing and then everybody says let's throw it in the air like spaghetti and let's try to get ratings
    • This is reality this is happening right down that street
    • This is a spy ring in Congress
    • And I don't really want to yeah man boobs and I man if you would see my man I'm I should publish my picture for from three years ago before the really heavy stuff started
    • I know I shouldn't do that I shouldn't do that all right if I get fake hip all right I like that fake hip no I'm all right all kinds of weird comments now
    • What I did not like what I did not like about the argument that I presented the motion that I presented and Cindy thank you very much for your help about those atmospheric esoteric issues that have nothing to do with you giving legal advice
    • But we were academically and atmospherically talking about blue sky issues that had nothing to do with this case
    • But what I did not like it was a beautiful law thank you very much I'm gonna just say Mishawaka
    • I'm gonna do a shout-out to Mishawaka
    • I know Mishawaka very well because my last year we were the number one team in Indiana, playing basketball, and we had this snow emergency, which delayed our tournament three weeks, and we had to play at the ACC in in Notre Dame at South Bend, and instead of our home court where we never lost a game Fort Wayne Memorial Coliseum
    • So we went up there and we lost to I want to say it was an admission walk a team
    • Now I can't remember but Mishawaka is very close to South Bend and big Notre Dame football fans and
    • So Cindy has been most helpful talking about atmospheric and atmospheric and academic topics having nothing to do with this case having nothing to do this case
    • But it was a argument of law the argument of law comes from as you all know English law
    • And English law had two courts there was the court of the King Court of the King Court of the King established by it's regal nature, embodied by God--that's where it got its authority
    • And then there was this court of the church called the Equity courts
    • So there's two separate courts two separate sets of laws in England
    • And we inherit them down to our court of--we combined them
    • Basically when we did away with a king we said that there's the common man this idea of the common man and the common good and common sense, where you think things through in a common way, common sense
    • A spy ring in Congress affects all men and women in America, all children in America
    • You don't have to be a legal scholar to understand that aspiring in Congress affects all common men, common women, and common children
    • That's a common sense argument
    • You don't have to be a legal scholar to understand if Rao (people keep sending me more and more evidence)
    • If Rao Abbas is designated and surrogated by Imran Awan as the doper of Blackberries going to our elected representatives, and he may have a terrorist past
    • You don't have to be a legal eagle to understand that is a serious threat to the common man
    • You don't have to be a legal scholar to understand that
    • You don't have to be a legal scholar to understand there's a clear and present danger in that
    • That you would let a terrorist configure the phones of our members in Congress!
    • Now I'm not saying Imran Awan is a terrorist in any way shape or form
    • I think Imran Awan is a smart man he is dedicated to his country his countries those aren't the United States of America
    • He is a very good operative a very good agent a very technically skilled agent, who I would respect and I would probably hire, if I was running an operation in the US Congress
    • If I wanted to run a spy ring in Congress I would hire Imran Awan--he is very good
    • His choice of surrogates I would have I would question
    • I'm not saying anything against Haseeb Rana
    • He's a hard-working guy he's just out there in Virginia they say configure 150 iPhones tonight Haseeb Rana would deliver you 150 iPhones 18 hours later
    • Excellent Haseeb Rana is a worker bee Haseeb Rana is a good man
    • Haseeb Rana is though guy who has configured most of the phones in Congress for the last two and a half years I believe
    • Rao Abbas is not that man!
    • Rao Abbas has not done that work
    • Rao Abbas has a different history
    • Rao Abbas--his history his relationship his record needs to be examined by the people of America and by this court here, where I sit this district court here in the District of Columbia
    • This is a clear and present danger
    • You do not have to be a legal eagle to understand my argument
    • The court of the church from England came to this country as the equity court
    • The court of equities
    • We empowered our judges to have this common sense rule--you don't have to quote case law
    • You don't have to be West law you don't have to shepardize all your cases and go through all this legal eagle legal eagle mumble jumbo and make all these technical arguments
    • We have a court of equity. A court of equity is established for the common man to make a common pleading in a Commonwealth
    • We have the Commonwealth of Virginia--that recognizes the common man
    • We have the Commonwealth and I'm gonna forget I don't know if Maryland's a Commonwealth now I went over my skis
    • But I know Virginia is a commonwealth I know Pennsylvania's our Commonwealth and they recognize the sanctity of the common man to make a common argument that says if you give the keys if you give the keys of our representatives
    • If you give them a spying tool
    • If you put in the hands of our representatives a spy tool that can see all their communications they can see all their documents
    • And you give that to a terrorist there is a clear and present danger to the security of the United States of America. An exigent an exigent danger--an urgent danger
    • That's why the court of equities was was empowered with the power of equity!
    • The power of equity was we'll put you up in the tower we'll put you up in the tower this is so important, so exigent, so urgent we will put you in the tower until this matter is resolved
    • This isn't the stuff of legal ping-pong
    • This isn't the stuff of legal ping-pong stuff where we can have our little conversations about so-and-so versus so-and-so, where we have time to dawdle and twiddle about the finer points of English law
    • The court of equities was created for the common man to make a common approach for common sense to a judge
    • To put you in the tower to put you in the tower if there was a clear and present danger--if there was a threat
    • That's why I didn't like the motion i-i-i filed
    • Cindy all respect to Mishawaka, because it was a argument of law, it was an argument of technicalities, it was an argument of chapter and verse, it was an argument of see this and see that and the other and the therefore and the why sums and that therefores and the therehows
    • I'm being facetious obviously saying it's a very procedural thing and that's done that's a part of history
    • Now that's a part of the case that's part of the record
    • But I am saying to the American people right now and I'm saying to the press I'm saying to the defense and I'm saying to the judge judge Chuckcan I believe is how you say your name and I'm saying to the prosecution
    • There's a simpler much simpler approach here which is the court of equities
    • The equitable power of the court the equitable power of the court the equitable power of the court is that a common sense judge can see a clear and present danger
    • Can see of clear and present danger and say I'm going to put you in the tower until this is resolved
    • Until you present me information that removes my doubt here I'm gonna put you in the tower the equitable power of the court
    • And now we go back to the fundamental rights and I hate everybody says oh you always take it to the fundamental rights you always take it to you you always have to supersede the first amendment
    • You always have to go back to the preamble George you're always going to the Declaration
    • You're always going to the preamble of the Constitution you're always quoting something in the preamble
    • You don't even you don't even want to get down to number one first amendment
    • You want to go to the preamble
    • Well yeah I do yes I do
    • Because the preamble the Constitution is first for a damn good reason: it's more important than anything else!
    • These are fundamental rights in the Declaration it's life liberty and the pursuit of happiness
    • And the Constitution I believe it's life liberty and the protection of property
    • But either way it comes before the other amendments because it's more important comes before the other amendments because it's more important!
    • And my case is this: Your Honor I come before this court not to present a technical argument, although I have and I didn't want to but it was well written, thank You Cindy for a Mishawaka oh wait I'm sorry we were talking about atmospherics in and academics--I wrote that
    • But there's something more fundamental, that I saw a little little kid in here he's 18 months old
    • He's not gonna understand any of this legalese
    • Thank you for I'm getting cue cards as I go on my my St. Christmas speech here
    • But I know I know the equitable power the court--that little kid isn't gonna understand that
    • That little kid does understand though if you surrogate a terrorist and start giving that person information about the emerging threats committee, which is a subcommittee of the permanent Select Committee on House Intelligence
    • Now remember I like Imran I like you you're a good man you're you're a good operative you're doing the best for your country
    • But I don't like your choices for surrogates I don't like Rao Abbas as your choice to be my surrogate in Congress configuring phones for Congress
    • When this comes out it's going to be a very simple argument to the to the court--I don't like Imran Awan deciding how to vet people who are configuring phones for Congress
    • And I think some of them have a very questionable history
    • And if Mike McMahan was here and he could do a background check on him, I think he would find a lot of problems with Rao Abbas's application
    • I'm not saying to see Branagh anything negative about Haseeb Rana, who is doing most of the work
    • But I am saying I don't know I am saying there is a common sense argument here that the FBI the FBI should do the vetting of Rao Abbas
    • The FBI--Mike McMahan should do via the vetting through OPM of Haseeb Rana
    • That's not your job Imran
    • As the Android Taggart said that is out of your lane--that is not your job to decide who can configure bones for Congress and who can't
    • The standard what is the standard? What is the test? What is the test it always comes down to the legal test?
    • Judge has a decision to make judge can subpoena everything judge can subpoena all the interviews of Haseeb Rana and Rao Abbas--the FBI interviews
    • She has that power equity of the courts
    • She can look at what the magistrate court had all the visas--she can look at all the visas she can discover those visas
    • All that is available under equity of the courts
    • The power of equity she miss judge Chutkan I believe is how her name is pronounced can reveal all that if she sees a clear and present dangers if she sees a threat to every American--that little 18 month old kid that I saw in there Quincy beautiful little child
    • If she sees a threat to Quincy's life liberty and pursuit of happiness or life liberty and the ability to protect his property his being, she has the power through the equity courts to say no
    • She has the power of the tower and I know tower power who's gonna make fun of me at tower power she has the power to say no I am holding you Imran I am holding you I am holding you in the tower
    • So you produce everything about Rao Abbas
    • So you produce everything I see that I see that about Haseeb your highschool friend
    • So you produce everything prosecution and defense--about those interviews the FBI interviews--about the visas
    • It's the power of the tower. The judge has that power
    • So I'm explaining why I'm writing a second motion
    • Because I don't want to make a technical argument
    • I don't want to do a point of law argument
    • Oh George did this fancy shuffle, he used this case law to burst in the door, declare a journalist's right--well actually it is a fair case--Carmichael is a fair case which shows a journalist's right to step in when the prosecution is delinquent, is derelict
    • That case law is sound as a whistle it is sound this sound lets this concrete
    • But everyone's gonna say well it's Carmichael versus so-and-so and it's such a technical argument and he used to he used a loophole and he used the law against us and he tricked this and he played five chess and he he beat us because he was on a six board that we didn't even know about
    • And we're only a billion dollar law firm we didn't have two billion dollars we could but we only had one more billion dollars we could have beat him!
    • We didn't know about the six checks chess board he beat us on the six chess board
    • He only said there was five and he he brought in this six chess board he beat us holding we had a billion more dollars
    • I'm not interested in beating I'm not interested in a point of law win or making points
    • I'm not interested in that win
    • I'm not interested in chess
    • I'm not interested in going head-to-head with Gowen and Winograd and Rhoads or whatever the hell her name is
    • I could give a flying frig about a technical win against a billion-dollar law firm
    • Oh if we only had another billion we'd have known about the six chess board or the 33rd chess board or however many damn chess boards
    • He's got going if only we would have known I don't want to make that argument
    • I want to make a much simpler argument that a common man can understand
    • Every man woman and child every man woman and child driving by here has a fundamental right to life liberty and pursuit of happiness and life liberty and the protection of property, and part of that is security
    • That's why we have a Federal government every man woman and child has standing in this case
    • A spy ring in Congress demands every man woman and child has a standing in this case you do not have to be f lee Bailey to understand that you can be an 18 month old child you can be Quincy to understand that
    • If you want to hit Quincy in the head with a brick I have a right to stop you that's your standing in this case a foreign power that would hit Quincy in the head with a brick 18 month old child beautiful 18 month old child
    • And I have a right to stop you
    • There is not one person watching this that would not as a common sense say Quincy has standing in this case
    • Because to say that Quincy doesn't have standing in this case, means well in certain cases you can hit Quincy in the head with a brick and in certain other instances you can't hit him Quincy in the head with a brick and let me take you through all the legalese to explain which cases you can't hit Quincy in the head with a brick in which cases you can
    • I'm saying you don't have to be illegal eagle all you have to understand is that's a beautiful child doing nothing wrong and someone wants to appoint someone to go up on Capitol Hill and give our secrets away
    • So Quincy gets hit in the head with a brick no no
    • We have the power and we have the standing to stop that
    • That's all this is
    • So the standard everyone says oh what's the standard what's the standard what's the standard give me the standard give me the test give me the test everyone wants another test
    • The test is irreparable harm
    • If you hit Quincy in the head with a brick--I wish you could see how beautiful this child was and this young mother its her birthday today she's 22 years old
    • I wish you could see how beautiful this family was
    • Irreparable harm
    • Does anyone coming from a foreign country get to pick up a brick and hit Quincy in the head with a brick? That's all this case is. It's as simple as that
    • Would that do irreparable harm to Quincy? Yes it would probably kill Quincy. Boom done we are done
    • Is there a clear and present danger?
    • Have you in the Congress through your machination through your pay to play a little network that you
    • I understand Schiff and Schumer I understand you were just trying to get the pay to play I understand that you just wanted to get the email and the documents for your pay to play I understand that you didn't think Rao Abbas a terrorist would be intercepting these documents
    • I'm not saying Raul boss is a terrorist -- I'm just saying if he was a terrorist that would be a bad thing
    • You're putting the brick in Rao Abbas's hand
    • You're putting the brick in the terrace hand when you dope BlackBerry's and you put them up there I'm sorry it's down that way down that way about a mile when you put those dope Blackberries in their hand and you don't vet who you put that brick in their hand
    • << Scrunch asks for a dollar >> Hey scrunch I got a dollar yeah I got it done oh shit you coming in you don't have to come very far I'd give it to you right
    • Now you asked me in such a sweet way..you know what I got left? I got one dollar
    • Can I ask you a question give you the dollar first no no I yeah I gave you my last dollar what's your name oh sorry what's your name? << nasty woman grimaces into the camera and runs away >>
    • Okay. She's done. All right
    • So she she got the dollar--this isn't this isn't venmo!
    • So we probably got thirty three dollars that was what we that was what there was just two and half days where we didn't receive anything
    • So so melissa set me up on Patreon and it's gonna be patchy on slash George Webb with an e George Webb
    • So thank you mu
    • So we can bury this
    • Now we don't have to talk about it anymore right this is what it's all about
    • It's a common sense--don't put the brick in the hand of a terrorist when we're vetting somebody to configure from the phones up on Capitol Hill--I love you to death Imran, but I don't want you making that choice for me the American people--because you're putting a brick in the hand
    • Now you say oh well that's not going to directly put a brick in the hand to hit Quincy in the head--you're being dramatic George you're being dramatic
    • Am I really?
    • What if Quincy grows up 18-month old beautiful child--what if he grows up and becomes a soldier, like Andre Taggert
    • What if he's doing a mission in Afghanistan August 2001, August 8 2011 excuse me August 8 2011
    • Now you're Imran Awan--you made the choice for the American people you decided that Rao Abbas was gonna be your delegate
    • You're a good operative you're doing your right thing you're taking the people down to the to the clubs spend a two thousand dollars a night--you're selling them to cars you're getting them you develop your business--you're salesman you're a goodtime guy
    • But Rao Abbas doesn't share those values
    • Rao Abbas has been poisoned with a revenge motive
    • Rao Abbas is hateful because he's been implanted with a revenge motive--I don't know who did it I don't know why they did it I don't know if it's true or not true
    • He might have a revenge motive maybe he has family that was killed in a bombing in a drone attack at a wedding
    • He might have every reason to be as hateful as he is
    • He might have every reason to be vengeful
    • So I'm not arguing that here
    • I'm just saying we don't want to put a brick in that man's hand, when little Quincy is running around
    • Or when Quincy beautiful little child running around is so cute
    • Or when Quincy becomes old enough to become a soldier
    • I don't know what happened on August 8th 2011--something happened
    • I've heard lots of conflicting stories
    • I don't know what happened on Trump's inauguration
    • They were waiting in Yemen--they were waiting
    • What I do know what I do know is Imran Awan is playing video games with Andre Carson--emerging threats committee
    • I'm gonna be filing a motion for the common man for common sense
    • And I'm going to be appealing to the judge with the equity power of the court to pierce this ridiculous gag order
    • This ridiculous cover-up of the key essential facts of this case
    • Imran Awans' visas
    • His UAE visa his his Pakistani visa and his excuse me passports
    • And the key FBI interviews of Haseeb Rana
    • And most importantly Rao Abbas thank you
  • Day 314.1 Judiciary Square - Last Chance To Present Evidence To the Judge - YouTube
    • Okay. Well judiciary squared a 314 this is kind of the last chance to present evidence to the judge
    • So yesterday if you saw yesterday I outlined the first motion we filed was a motion of law
    • This one is going to be the second motion we file is going to be a motion of equity
    • There is no more remedies in the law
    • We presented a technical argument the first time around we talked about rules of evidence and and all that sort of thing
    • Now it's a common man's approach a common sense approach, which is equity
    • When the remedies of the law are exhausted the court has extraordinary power with equity equity power
    • We're going to move this to equity jurisdiction because of the recent developments we recently found out IMran Awan still had access to the house network through the second email address that was Tuesday
    • We found out that Rao Abbas still is working in the House of Representative that's the hand-picked surrogate of Imran Awan still working in the house that Ramu that same Rao Abbas Abbas has FBI interviews available that needs to be presented to the court to adequately assess the risk to national security
    • So we're looking for a couple of very specific pieces of evidence we're looking at Rao boss's connection with Andre Carson
    • The reason why Andre Carson is so important is because he is on the emerging threats committee of the house permanent Select Committee on Intelligence
    • That is key because that is the committee that I believe oversees all of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence ODNI odni oversees all 27 of our Intelligence agencies
    • So let me repeat that the hand-picked surrogate the hand-picked surrogate of Imran Awan, Rao Abbas is overseeing and still working for Andre Carson
    • I believe in the emerging threat subcommittee the emerging threat subcommittee of the house permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, that oversees the office of Director of National Intelligence ODNI James clapper used to run that job I think Dan Burton has it now
    • That is the vital link from Defense Intelligence Agency CIA NGA national geospatial Agency NSA--all of our Intelligence community feeds into ODNI
    • And this is the link to the top of the top on top of the chain
    • There could not be any more pressing national security interests here!
    • The people every person in the United States clearly without question has a unalienable right and an unalienable right--a fundamental right and standing in this case
    • And the only remedy left for this irreparable harm that's been done to every person in the United States through this spy ring in Congress is the equity courts
    • Is for the court to declare equity jurisdiction that gives the poor court power to enjoin
    • That power to issue temporary restraining orders
    • The power to issue various subpoenas for the court
    • The power to see all the evidence that's available at the fingertips of the prosecution, which has been suppressed--been suppressed from the prosecution from the court
    • The court has been misled
    • This court this court has been misled
    • This is the opportunity of the court now--through equity power equity jurisdiction--to see the evidence that's been hidden from them and suppressed
    • The prosecution has circumscribed this case
    • The prosecution has made a corner case
    • If the house is burning down and you have a weed in the front yard you attend to the house burning down not the weed in the front yard
    • The prosecution has made this case about the weed in the front yard
    • We need to attend to the burning house, and we all live in that house, that's our house: the House of Representatives
    • The House of Representatives is burning and we're worried about a bank fraud a simple bank fraud charge
    • That's all the prosecution has presented in this case
    • If not for a landlady if not for a landlady and I'm looking directly down at five four four I'm speaking directly five five five fourth Street where the prosecutors are
    • I guess I could make this right out in front I could give make it easier but I'm going the other way to file

2017.08.28 18:00 daprice82 Wrestling Observer Rewind ★ Apr. 21, 1997

Going through old issues of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter and posting highlights in my own words. For anyone interested, I highly recommend signing up for the actual site at f4wonline and checking out the full archives.

Just a heads up, there won't be any posts on Wednesday and Thursday. I will be out of town those days. So only Mon, Tues, and Fri. this week
  • ECW's first ever PPV, Barely Legal, is in the books. 53-year-old Terry Funk stole the show with a great performance and history making title win. Dave says the show wasn't perfect but it has to be considered a major success by ECW. It's believed that the show was probably a money loser financially, due to it not being carried by one of the two major carriers as well as other smaller carriers. Paul Heyman was telling people before the show that it probably wouldn't make any money and the goal was to put on the best show possible and hope that the other carriers would get onboard with a 2nd PPV in the future. Heyman has meetings lined up with Viewers Choice and Cablevision, both of whom didn't carry this show, but may carry future events. ECW announced a second PPV in August which they said would take place in a larger venue in a new city.
  • Joey Styles handled almost the entire show on commentary by himself and was pretty much great the whole time, getting over all the major key points, all the wrestlers for first time viewers, and even managed to help explain all the Japanese wrestlers better than anyone else does when foreigners show up in WWF or WCW. The camerawork and audio was a little shoddy at points and some of the wrestlers were clearly nervous. There were no F-words, as promised to RequestTV (except from the crowd), and the blood wasn't gratuitous or used in every match. Overall, Dave says it was a better show than most WWF and WCW PPVs. The show drew a sellout crowd of 1,250 to the ECW Arena (which was given a new paint job and they had a nice pretty new ring). They also did a record gate of over $60,000 and set a new merch record also.
  • Other notes from the show: JT Smith returned to work a dark match and got a surprisingly huge pop from the crowd. Bubba Ray Dudley suffered a broken ankle in the first match and was hospitalized after the show and will be fitted for a cast later this week. The crowd chanted "You sold out!" at Rob Van Dam since it's believed he's headed for WCW. At one point during the Van Dam/Lance Storm match, Van Dam pushed aside wrestling journalist Bill Apter outside the ring. After the match, Van Dam cut a promo saying he was insulted that he was chosen as a fill-in for the injured Chris Candido, which is true. Van Dam didn't want to work the show because he was pissed that he wasn't included in the original plans to begin with. He then hinted about going elsewhere, to play off the WCW-heat. The 6-man Michinoku Pro match was one of the best matches of the year. During this match, Joey Styles actually mentioned Dave Meltzer on commentary ("and didn't even set a bonfire to burn an Observer" Dave adds). Shane Douglas cut his usual promo, calling out guys like Ric Flair and Shawn Michaels. Then he had a match with Pit Bull #2 that was so bad that Flair and Michaels could have done better "blindfolded with a crippling fever." Sabu vs. Taz was stiff as hell and both guys left banged up but the match seemed disappointing and didn't get over as well as you'd expect with the crowd after a year-long build. The handshake after was met with huge boos and the double-turn afterward was a huge mess. Also, contrary to what some people have said, the double-turn was planned before the Hart/Austin double-turn at Wrestlemania so this wasn't ECW copying WWF. Dave says he doesn't know where the drunk-gimmick with Sandman begins and ends because he seems to live the character 24/7 and worries about someone getting hurt if Sandman ever goes into the ring drunk. During the ladder match, the ladder accidentally flew into the crowd which was one of the things some of the PPV carriers were nervous about (fans getting hurt due to the wild nature of the show) but luckily no one was hurt. Tod Gordon could be seen frantically checking on people in the crowd after. Big Dick Dudley returned, saying he was out of prison (which is true, that's where he's been the last few months). The ending of the main event was botched due to the bell ringing earlier than it was meant to but the crowd was so hype that it didn't matter.

  • And finally, one last pretty famous note from Barely Legal: literally only 24 seconds after the show went off the air, the generator blew and all the power for the television cameras went out. If it had happened just minutes earlier, it would have destroyed the end of the PPV. Talk about lucky timing.
  • Judo star Naoya Ogawa debuted for NJPW and the debut is being hailed as a major success. Ogawa replaced Ken Shamrock as the opponent for Shinya Hashimoto at the Tokyo Dome last week. The show had a ton of mainstream publicity leading up to it and drew 60,500 which was better than NJPW expected and makes it the 2nd highest grossing show of the year, behind the Jan. 4th Tokyo Dome show. After a disputed finish that Ogawa seemingly won, a rematch was set for the Osaka Dome next month, this time with the IWGP title on the line. It's not known if Ogawa will win the title or not, but the original plan with Ken Shamrock was for him to win the title at the Osaka show.
  • Dave says that Battlecade Extreme Fighting (the MMA promotion often confused with ECW by clueless politicians) have announced they are folding. They were pretty much a victim of the political landscape with people trying to ban the sport and with the PPV carriers declining to carry the fledgling promotions' events.
  • NFL Hall of Famer Reggie White has signed on to appear at WCW Slamboree next month to face Steve McMichael. The negotiations had been ongoing since January after NFL player and part-time wrestler Kevin Greene suggested it. No word on what he's being paid, but White had been asking for $500,000 at one point. The story made national news in all the sports outlets. White is reportedly a long time wrestling fan, dating back to the old NWA days.
  • Nitro in Philadelphia (the night after the ECW PPV) drew the 2nd largest crowd (16,256) and gate ($219,816) in WCW history and set an all-time merch record as well ($143,000). The Nitro scheduled for June in Boston is expected to break all of those records also, with early ticket sales already doing huge numbers. Aside from WCW being the hot promotion, Dave says they deserve credit for doing great local promotion in all these cities where house show business is booming. Their local promotion is handled by a company owned by Zane Bresloff and Dave says that aside from Hogan, Bresloff has been more important than just about anyone in WCW when it comes to the turn around in house show business.
  • Hulk Hogan did a rare clean job to Jacques Rougeau at WCW's show in Montreal. Rougeau was the promoter of the show and was expected to be the hometown hero, but the crowd was actually split between he and Hogan. It was a non-title match and Rougeau pinned Hogan clean with a small package which sets up a return match the next time they come through Montreal. It was Hogan's first totally clean pinfall loss since losing the WWF title to Ultimate Warrior at WM6 in 1990.

  • Eddie Guerrero was the winner of last year's NJPW Top of the Super Juniors tournament (as Black Tiger) but he won't be able to work it this year due to a torn pec injury.
  • Jake Roberts made his first wrestling appearance since being fired from WWF, showing up in AAA to do a run-in.
  • Abdullah the Butcher is scheduled for some upcoming shows for WAR in Japan and Dave notes that Abdullah, at 61 years old, is probably the oldest active wrestler in the world. I feel like that's gotta be wrong. Maybe he means full-time active? I dunno.
  • Lots of behind the scenes turmoil in USWA. Mike Samples has quit as booker and will be replaced by Dutch Mantell. Word is Samples wanted to stop booking Bill Dundee because he feels Dundee, at 57, is too old. But Jerry Lawler disagreed and overruled him, which led to Samples quitting. Also, Larry Burton, the guy who has been running the business end of USWA (and has clashed with pretty much everyone in the company) is reportedly planning to leave as well (nah Burton ain't going anywhere. He sticks around to the bitter, messy end).
  • The night before the ECW PPV, they held a banquet in honor of Terry Funk and everyone says it was an overwhelmingly positive experience. Funk brought his entire family in for the event and was in tears for most of it. Many ECW wrestlers and personalities gave speeches. Among the highlights was Beulah, who talked about her father being near death from cancer and then started crying and saying that she wants Funk to walk her down the aisle if she ever gets married (here's the whole thing, it's 2 and a half hours long and yeah it's a tearjerker from start to finish. Paul Heyman gives a 30 minute speech and it's as great as you'd expect).
WATCH: ECW's Terry Funk Banquet
  • Dan Severn was backstage at the ECW PPV and talked with Paul Heyman about possibly coming in, likely to work an angle with Taz. Given that Severn is the NWA champion and considering ECW's history with the NWA, you can imagine how well that would go over with them. In fact, Severn was asked to drop the NWA title to Dory Funk the night before the ECW show but he refused because they asked him at the last minute. NWA is reportedly anxious to get the title off him since there are rumors of him going to either ECW or WWF.
  • WCW referee Nick Patrick, Dean Malenko, Rocco Rock, and one of the members of Harlem Heat (Dave doesn't say who) showed up at the ECW Arena about half an hour before the PPV started (they were in town for the Nitro the next day). Many in the ECW dressing room were ready to go out and start a fight with them, but Heyman calmed everyone down. After the PPV ended, Kevin Sullivan, Hugh Morris, and Dave Penzer also showed up to hang out and were cordial with everyone.
  • Dennis Coraluzzo ran a second Eddie Gilbert memorial show this week and drew over 1,000 fans. He managed to get Jim Cornette, Flash Funk, and Goldust from WWF along with several other big indie names and former WWF stars. A local wrestler named Lance Diamond got rave reviews for being the best wrestler on the show (that would be Simon Diamond, later of ECW and TNA fame).
  • An indie show scheduled in a high school gym in Virginia was cancelled due to complaints, first by the American Arab Anti-Defamation Committee. The Iron Sheik was scheduled to work the show and they were upset about the heel character he has played on TV during his career and complained. So the indie promotion agreed to take Sheik off the show. But then another group started complaining about the midget wrestlers being a negative portrayal and wanted them removed from the show as well. Finally, the school where the show was being held just pulled the plug on the whole thing.
  • Former ECW valet Kimona Wanalaya debuted in WCW in a dark match at the Nitro tapings. The match will be aired later on one of the syndicated weekend shows. She was the manager of a jobber tag team called The Extreme. No word on what her WCW name will be (seems this may have just been a one-off appearance. Far as I can tell, she never actually signed with WCW for real until 1999).
  • More drama in WCW among all the usual suspects. This gets a little convoluted so bear with me: Earlier in the week, Eric Bischoff, Kevin Nash, Ric Flair, and Roddy Piper got together to discuss the plans for the Slamboree main event. The face team is Flair, Piper, and Kevin Greene vs. Kevin Nash, Scott Hall and......? Hogan doesn't want to work the show so it won't be him. Nash and Hall said they wanted Syxx to be their partner but Flair and Piper don't want Syxx in the match because they feel he's not a big enough name to main event a show in a match with a famous NFL player involved that will get mainstream media coverage. Kevin Nash argued that, given the "talent" in the match, Syxx would be the only one capable of actually making it a watchable match and he basically insulted Flair and Piper to their faces about their age and even called Flair a comedy act. There's also heat between Nash and Piper because Nash apparently didn't sell for Piper during their Uncensored PPV match. Basically, the old guys feel like the young guys don't respect the legends and the young guys feel like the legends don't respect the new generation. Anyway, on Nitro, Piper and Flair cut a promo vaguely alluding to all this and rambling about their history in the business and about respecting the veterans and all that. Dave says that unless you're a hardcore insider fan, most people probably can't even make sense of all the promos in WCW these days. Dave criticizes Flair and Piper and said that 2.8 million people were tuned in during that interview, but they cut that promo for 1 person: Kevin Nash, who was probably laughing through the whole thing. In fact, he says a lot of people backstage in WCW were probably laughing because it just made Flair and Piper look insecure. Anyway, they still haven't figured out who the 3rd NWO member will be in the match, so for now, they just announced it as "The NWO" instead of naming 3 people (it does end up being Syxx. So chalk one up for Nash).
  • Latest on the proposed WCW Thursday night show is that it may not happen after all. There have been no arenas booked for Thursday tapings and they would have to be booked months in advance if it was going to happen. "TBS offered big money for the show, but apparently common sense may win out after all since it'll destroy the personal lives of most of the office and a lot of the wrestlers, not to mention possibly dilute the winning Monday night formula," Dave says. Yeah, common sense wins out.....for now. In his book, Eric Bischoff basically says Thunder was the beginning of the end because he didn't want to do the show but was pretty much forced to. He says it overworked him and everyone else and he hated it.
  • In the WWF vs. WCW lawsuit about the hotline that has been mentioned off and on, the judge ruled that Mark Madden is a journalist and thus wasn't required to reveal his sources about...whatever it was he said on the hotline. I don't even remember anymore. Madden was also recently suspended by WCW for a week for using the phrase "Say hello to the bad guy" on the hotline, which led to WWF lawyer Jerry McDevitt sending another threatening letter to WCW.
  • Scott Hall is expected to return any day now after being out the last month or so dealing with personal issues.
  • WCW is really trying to get Kevin Sullivan out of the ring to retire. Nearly a year ago, Eric Bischoff told Sullivan that when his feud with Chris Benoit runs its course, he's done in the ring. So Sullivan (who is the booker) has done a masterful job of keeping his storyline with Benoit going for about a year now and to give credit where it's due, it has been an extremely popular angle that has launched Benoit into a legit star. But WCW is really putting the pressure on Sullivan to wrap it up and be done in the ring now.
  • A few weeks back, Paul Heyman held a meeting with the ECW locker room telling them that if anyone went to WCW's Nitro when it came to Philadelphia to not ever speak to him again because that person would be dead to Heyman. Well, the only ECW person who went to Nitro was Bill Alfonso so read into it what you may (Alfonso later denies he was there).
  • Raw sucked this week and was taped from an outdoor stadium in South Africa (with a few pre-taped American arena matches included also). The main event of Crush vs. Ahmed Johnson was a worst match of the year candidate. "They did nothing and were missing everything."
  • The highest ranking non-McMahon in WWF resigned this week. Neville Meyer was hired back in September and was made co-CEO (along with Linda McMahon). His vague job description was "taking the business to a new level" but nothing ever really changed with his hiring and his leaving didn't seem to cause much of a stir.
  • Sid reportedly has a herniated disc in his back from a weightlifting injury, but there's a lot of skepticism. For one, it's Sid and well, it's softball season. And secondly, there's a lot of concern about people following "the Shawn Michaels lead" (aka faking an injury so they don't have to put over Bret Hart). Sid was scheduled to put over Hart at the upcoming PPV but the match has been changed to a Hart vs. Austin rematch.
  • Tiger Ali Singh (son of legend Tiger Jeet Singh) debuted on WWF's Kuwait tour and won the Kutaiti Cup tournament. But word is he was really green and out of shape and so despite getting a huge push on the tour, WWF has no plans to use him in the U.S. right now.
  • WWF is claiming that they haven't changed their blood policy and that Steve Austin decided to violate company policy at Wrestlemania. Nobody's really buying it though.
  • As for the poor buyrate of Wrestlemania, WWF officials are blaming it on the Shawn Michaels "injury." Basically, they had spent about a year slowly building up to a Michaels/Hart rematch and then, a month before the show, Michaels lost his smile and went home, leaving the company scrambling without the marquee match they had built up to.
  • The Michinoku Pro wrestlers who wrestled at the ECW PPV have a meeting scheduled with WWF this week in Connecticut.
  • WWF has had no talks with Disco Inferno, despite what he is apparently telling people.
  • At a TV conference in Canada, some filmmakers were shopping around plans for a documentary about Bret Hart (this would, of course, become Wrestling With Shadows and, well, it eventually becomes pretty important in the aftermath of the screwjob).
  • WWF has had discussions with UFC fighters Don Frye and Scott Ferrozzo but they've led nowhere.
  • A guy named Paul Guay writes in and says he was the co-writer of the movie Liar Liar and said he appreciated Dave referencing the movie in a recent issue. He says the kid who played Jim Carrey's son in the movie is a huge wrestling fan. There was a scene filmed for the movie featuring Sting and The Giant that didn't make the cut, but he describes the scene. It would have taken place early in the movie. Jim Carrey takes his son to a wrestling show but he works on legal briefings instead of enjoying the show with his son. Unfortunately the scene was cut from the movie, but the writer says Sting was super professional and The Giant was hilarious and was goofing around between takes and mooning people.
TOMORROW: Vader gets arrested in Kuwait for assaulting a TV host on live television, Bret Hart suffers knee injury, WCW attempts to raid ECW, and more...

National role eludes de Blasio — but Trump might help
by [email protected] (Laura Nahmias) via POLITICO - TOP Stories
URL: http://ift.tt/2tDIQyN
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is virtually unchallenged within his party and all but certain to win a second term in November. He’s got a string of liberal policy victories in his back pocket - paid sick leave, paid family leave and a municipal ID card program – and he’s positioned himself as an outspoken opponent of President Donald Trump on policies like police reform and sanctuary cities.
But three years after riding into office with bold liberal promises and visions of leading a national charge on issues like income inequality, de Blasio is still struggling to fashion the national profile he’s long sought.
His efforts to push a national agenda in 2015 sputtered quickly and his awkward election-year relationship with Hillary Clinton’s team only exacerbated criticisms of political hubris and tone deafness at home, underscored by his recent insistence on being chauffeured in city car to his Brooklyn gym at the same time he's calling on people to make sacrifices to combat climate change.
Moreover, the broader liberal revolution the mayor once hoped to lead has come to be defined on Bernie Sanders’ terms, not de Blasio’s, leaving the New York mayor’s place in the national debate unclear – particularly compared to his Republican predecessors, Rudy Giuliani and Michael Bloomberg.
“He’s got a Bernie message,” Vermont Rep. Peter Welch said of de Blasio at an April dinner in Burlington, where the mayor was a guest speaker, but the Vermont senator was the star.
"There’s absolutely no doubt that the mayor of New York City should have a bigger role in the national discussion than he does,” says one Democratic political operative in New York City. “Even at this point in his mayoralty, I feel like Bloomberg was starting to come out more, and certainly during his second term, he began to become a national player. … Before he was elected, people expected Bill de Blasio to eventually be playing a larger role than he currently is."
Trump’s election may have given de Blasio a new opportunity, and the mayor is traveling the country delivering speeches and meeting with some of the party’s most influential donors, as he looks to rack up a landslide re-election. Earlier this month, he traveled to the U.S. Conference of Mayors' annual meeting in Miami to announce an effort led by a group of mayors to push back against the Senate Republicans’ effort to repeal the Affordable Care Act.
But by all accounts, the mayor of the United States’ largest city has a lot of ground to make up. Influential Democrats outside New York City are polite in their praise – but they’re not yet clamoring for a de Blasio revolution.
California Democratic Party Chair John Burton hosted a fundraiser for de Blasio in San Francisco in March and had good things to say about de Blasio, noting that “when you’re the Mayor of New York, you’re an automatic national figure.”
But Burton notes that primary reason he threw the event was a friendship with de Blasio cousin and labor operative John Wilhelm. “I don’t know Bill that well at all, and I could say if it wasn’t for his imposing stature [de Blasio is 6’5”], and his being John’s cousin, that I would not have remembered him that much,” Burton said.
De Blasio spokesman Eric Phillips argues that local wins have to come before national status. “The Mayor's only been in office a few years and he's achieved dramatic success on crime, education, job-creation and housing,” he told POLITICO. “He's putting big progressive wins on the board locally and he's cognizant that without that management and policy success someone won't have the credibility it takes to influence the national debate. You've got to do one before the other.”
Slow out of the gate
Critics, however, contend that de Blasio actually took the opposite approach out of the gate – getting out over his skis in his first bid for national relevance early in his first term.
His landslide victory in 2013, built on progressive promises like universal pre-K and police reform, catapulted him from an unknown public advocate to a national voice for liberals disaffected with the Democratic Party.
But the mayor stumbled in his efforts to rally national liberals behind him. A national group de Blasio founded in 2015, called the Progressive Agenda, failed to attract significant interest as the mayor faced a series of increasingly difficult challenges back in the city.
And his plan to host a bipartisan presidential forum in Iowa fizzled when nobody would agree to attend it.
Then De Blasio’s failure to endorse Hillary Clinton early in her candidacy — unlike many other leading Democrat officials — left her campaign staff and closest allies fuming publicly and privately over what they saw as the mayor’s arrogance.
Clinton surrogate Hilary Rosen heckled the mayor when he held a press conference in Iowa last winter, as he stumped for her campaign. And Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook called de Blasio a “terrorist” for his public praise of Bernie Sanders in a series of emails hacked and leaked last summer.
De Blasio tried to make it right with effusive praise for Clinton, but it was too late: He’d become persona non grata among the Democratic establishment. He eventually endorsed Clinton, but the awkward dance ultimately left de Blasio looking out of step with not only Clinton’s camp but also with Sanders and his supporters.
People close to the mayor say privately that they regard the Progressive Agenda, and the Clinton debacle, as a political failure they'd like to forget.
“That moment deflated his ability to translate his rhetoric into political support among progressives,” Baruch College political science professor Doug Muzzio said.
Phillips, the mayor’s spokesman, calls that contention “academic silliness. Progressives will ultimately only care about what Bill de Blasio does for working New Yorkers, not the date he endorsed Hillary Clinton.”
The irony is that in hindsight, some of de Blasio’s criticisms of Clinton look prescient — most of all his argument that she wasn’t addressing economic inequality in her campaign, an issue that Sanders ended up turning into a rallying cry for his insurgent bid. Indeed, many of de Blasio’s policy ideas, particularly universal pre-kindergarten, have been embraced by national Democrats.
Bernie's Limelight
During de Blasio’s April trip to a Democratic fundraising dinner in Burlington, dozens of admirers flocked to Sanders, who at one point was surrounded six-deep by selfie-seekers and taught a couple how to switch the lens on their phone to capture a photo.
Unsurprisingly, De Blasio was less of a draw. It took the mayor only a few minutes to shake hands with a handful of admirers, at which point he began to introduce himself to other attendees. In his remarks, de Blasio touted his work on affordable housing, municipal ID cards, and police reform, though his biggest applause line was came when he told the New England crowd that he remains a Red Sox fan.
His fellow speakers, including Sanders, seemed to know de Blasio mostly for his universal pre-K program, an early legislative victory in the mayor's term. (Vermont’s pre-K program went into effect this school year.)
Sanders said de Blasio is “leading that revolution for childcare in New York City.”
De Blasio is not getting credit for leading the way on addressing inequality, however, in part because the progressive movement has gotten pretty crowded since the heady days of 2014, when he was at the vanguard.
When Sanders made a surprise trip to New York City in January, it was not to appear with de Blasio, but instead to praise a free-tuition plan being offered by Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a proud centrist and rival of the mayor who had been a harsh critic of Sanders during his primary campaign.
And who, exactly, can lay claim to the party’s platform remains an open question after Democrats’ bruising losses of November’s election.
As California’s Burton puts it: “Nobody’s gonna capture the national stage right now, because nobody knows what the hell’s going on."
Alienating allies
Despite his high poll numbers in New York City, De Blasio’s tendency to lecture the press and condescend to his seasoned agency heads don’t help. Even loyal staff members past and present say privately that he’s difficult to work with.
Muzzio ascribes some of de Blasio’s failure to launch to his personality, and says he’s unnecessarily alienated allies both inside and outside New York City. “In terms of policy, he should be in the forefront of the national progressive movement, but he isn’t,” Muzzio said.
New York elected officials, for instance, were enraged in February when the mayor traveled to the Democratic National Committee elections in Atlanta to support Keith Ellison’s candidacy for chairman, but failed to do any campaigning on behalf of the two New Yorkers seeking vice-chair positions within the party.
Critics and other politicians say the mayor’s staff have often been so disorganized that it’s virtually impossible to schedule events with him.
This past spring, when New York’s congressional delegation secured federal reimbursement for the NYPD’s costs of providing security at Trump Tower, Reps. Grace Meng, Nita Lowey, Carolyn Maloney and Jerry Nadler hustled to City Hall’s Blue Room for a press conference to celebrate the funding victory. But an apologetic de Blasio left while the event was still ongoing so he could travel to Vermont for his event with Sanders that evening, leaving the lawmakers alone to field questions.
He’s also had difficulty organizing coalitions in Albany among the Democrat-led Assembly to push or protect his legislative agenda, and he’s still locked in a distracting feud with New York’s Governor Andrew Cuomo, also a Democrat.
None of those stumbles are likely to have an impact on his chances for re-election this year. Recent polls show the mayor with a 60 percent approval rating, his highest ever, and he faces a shallow field of poorly-funded Democratic challengers in this year’s primary election.
De Blasio’s team said the mayor is actually working on building his profile at home. “He's a methodical guy who cares more about the work at home than about being another talking head on national issues,” Phillips said. “Those expecting him to be a national force right out of the gate don't understand the challenges or the rhythms associated with one of the most demanding jobs in American politics.”
Still, the Trump era – which has coincided with de Blasio’s re-election run — has given the mayor an opening for a national do-over.
A second chance
In recent months the mayor has made fundraising stops in Florida, Seattle, Los Angeles and Chicago, and collected donations from some of the party's most prominent fundraisers, like AOL CEO Timothy Armstrong, early Facebook investor Sean Parker and hip hop mogul Russell Simmons.
Boston criminal justice activist and former real estate developer Woody Kaplan was more than happy to donate to de Blasio’s re-election this year, because he supports the mayor’s criminal justice proposals, including reducing the use of stop and frisk and his closing the city’s jail at Rikers Island. But Kaplan demurred when asked about the mayor’s viability for higher office.
“There are at least 34 Democrats being speculated publicly about running for president, so I’m staying out of that for the time being,” Kaplan said, adding, “I’ll probably bet on a horse, eventually.”
If de Blasio is seeking to broaden his profile on the national stage, or considering a run for higher office, he’s going about it in a gentler fashion than he did in 2015. Rather than serving as the face of a progressive coalition, he’s been more content to share the stage with other elected officials.
Rather than touring the country on his own to promote his agenda, he’s been courting the favor of his fellow mayors and working to build alliances with mayors around the country to resist the president’s agenda.
“There is no central headquarters for the progressive movement,” he said in a recent press conference, when asked what he saw as his role in the movement today. “This is a bunch of likeminded people trying in many ways to work together more than ever before. It is a work in progress.”

  • [Day 208.1 Hillary's Hackers, Awan Brothers Saga Deepens Part 1 - YouTube]
    • NO Caption.
    • Day 208 and the update for this morning: the new word is "school play"
    • The FBI, well now FBI does them. The CIA has done what's called "school plays" for a long time.
    • It's a situation where something has happened where you don't want that story or the truth going out, so you have to completely create a whole play, around the situation, where everyone plays a part, so it's just like putting on a school play--that's why the name: school play.
    • So in this case, you have--potentially--I'm just putting out out there, I'm not saying this is the dominant theory, but one of the working theories, is that the whole Seth Rich thing is a school play
    • The way you can tell a school play from signature, is when the characters don't act like the characters after the play is over.
    • When the school play is over with little red riding hood at your local school, you don't go up to the woodsman after and say, "wow thank you for saving little red riding hood." The person goes, "that was a play. That's wasn't reality."
    • Little red riding hood says the same thing, "Hey Buddy, you need to stop bothering me."
    • That kind of thing
    • It could be that there's a script here for everybody.
    • Now sometimes, there are people that are real in the school play, and you convinced them to play a part.
    • So for instance, maybe the girlfriend is a Baruch (CUNY) Drama major
    • Maybe the--and usually you have a lot of PR firms intercepting inquiries--that's where you normally get the school play
    • And this is--this is the reason I went to Monster--erm--Mossad Worldwide yesterday--because they do school plays--that's what they do for a living
    • And with Anthony Weiner working there, it just had all the signatures.
    • And the reason you do that is to divert energy.
    • You're just turning energy away from the reality you want to shield, and you're trying to turn it way.
    • You don't want to stop the energy, you want to just divert it slightly.
    • Especially money.
    • So Money you could say, hey I don't want money going towards these "conspiracy theories", which is really going to end up being your truth.
    • So you set up PR to fund money toward things that 'seem like the truth'
    • So you go to the parents you say the same thing, you say, "hey we can't, if people give money they're going to research all these things about the Kennedy Assassinations, and so forth, it's all going to be wasted"
    • We need to make sure we channel it to this guy
    • So even the private investigator in these scenario can be a school play, and you never know
    • The only way you can do it is just go up to the scenery after the school play is over with, and take your finger and poke it.
    • And if it goes straight through the paper mache, then you start figuring it out.
    • Or you start talking to the people after the play is over.
    • When people after the play don't act like the characters that they were playing, that's your indication
    • So for instance:
    • When the parents don't act like the parents--they don't want to find the killer really
    • When the girlfriend doesn't really want to find the killer
    • When the police doesn't really want to find the killer
    • When the FBI doesn't want to find the killer
    • When people in the DNC and all his friends, Hillary Clinton, Debbie-Wasserman-Shultz don't want to find the killer
    • When the deputy of the DNC, who is Mike Kepner, who was Anthony Weiner's boss doesn't want to find the killer or put up a reward.
    • These are all clues that it's a school play.
    • Now Mike Keptner--I'll go back and talk about Mike Kepner
    • The Ad Agency that I was at yesterday, which is MWW that Mike Kepner runs--he is the Deputy Chairman of the DNC, so he has a vested interest in telling a story about the school play.
    • So I'm going to be drilling down on in Washington now, drilling down on that doctor that did the--the intern--Eowyn E O W Y N I'd like to talk to him. Interview him. Just sit down like this have a conversation.
    • The last couple of days there's been a lot of talk about Rod Wheeler being and investigator. I'd like to meet with him when he goes to Washington DC. I believe Jason Goodman. Well I won't say anything about that.
    • We did a lot of shooting in the last couple of days for a documentary. More conversational type documentary.
    • Just go to crowdsourcethenews
    • We had horrible wind up there the first time, but yesterday I think we had a little bit better of a shooting experience
    • The big idea for this morning is "school play"
  • [Day 208.2 Hillary's Hackers, Awan Brothers Saga Deepens Part 2 - YouTube]
    • Okay, Day 208 part 2
    • I think I might have missed something
    • I used to call it the WikiLeaks trio, which was Jones dying in April, and then Ratner dying in May, and then Shawn Lucas dying in June, and then McFadden dying, and McFadden dying in September
    • And then I had the DNC duo which was which was Seth Rich, which was part of the Duo, the other half of the duo was Shawn Lucas.
    • I might have blown that.
    • I think it's actually the WikiLeaks five, and they're all together--it's always one thing
    • So I might have blown that apologize to the audience out there,
    • But now have indications that Seth Rich was communicating with Shawn Lucas as the legal arm of what he was trying to do which was the he was trying to expose the money going from Berniecrats over to Hillacrats
    • So this timeline needs to be integrated now
    • And I had them as two separate timelines and those need to be integrated.
    • And the Powerball though, always in this was Eric Braverman
    • I think it's actually the wiki six not the WikiLeaks five, that we can six and Powerball is Eric Braverman, still working on that. I'm not really ready to say that yet but it's at least a wiki five right now. And I'm like I said I think it's going to be the wiki 6.
    • Let's see moving to DC.
    • So people want to contact Eowin, the doctor.
    • I'd like to talk to him.
    • We still don't know where the attending physician is.
    • Certainly if you would have written all that stuff about the attending physician, you would know who the attending physician is.
    • So we're just trying to see if the scenery is real, or not, with them, poking it a little bit.
    • The other thing is I'm so glad that I have a 40 year operating room nurse watching my stuff.
    • Because when you talk to a first-year doctor, whoever that might be they don't know a lot.
    • Actually it's the nurses who work in ER for 40 years with the guy who pioneered liver transplants.
    • They know the procedures. Alive. And what she said is all OR trauma one has a cat scan or CT scanner.
    • The first thing they would have done with Seth Rich is roll him on his side, look for wounds, roll him on his back look for wounds, run CT scans on both
    • And so we would have very detailed CT scans right now if he had back was in the hospital
    • So now I'm almost thinking the hospital story in its entirety maybe a school play.
    • She would have looked--she also mentioned that MedStar was directly down the street which has a trauma one center as well as the transplant center
    • Just on aside there
    • And it could be that you have Joe Capone who owns the bar, who owns the Lou's City bar--he's at the White House three days before, and you can check the White House logs {{ W.T.F. }}
    • Now it says he's in a tour, but then he is filmed in the side, private room, with three women
    • So that doesn't happen on the White House floor
    • So it's called the "Rice Pilaf" you peel the person off--the cover is the light they "oh they just took the White House two or three days before Seth disappeared", but you can check there's a there's a picture of them floating on the Internet what these were three three different women, kind of a private room
    • Now they're all I'm sure great folks, but but that's a little bit suspicious, three days before Rich disappears.
    • Was Rich even at the bar isn't my question
    • Now because there's if Seth Rich was supposed to be at that bar six nights a week, for week, after week, after week, drinking drinking drinking in that same corner bar, which is this Meme that's been created: Seth Rich, the drunk, [YET] no one saw him that night?
    • No one saw him that last night?
    • No one tweeted out after they--had this person that they saw every day for months tipping--liberally they wouldn't miss him?
    • That just seems strange to me
    • So again I'm almost questioning the whole Lou City Bar thing
    • Now just am poking the scenery, and the scenery is looking like paper machine right now.
  • [8.3 Hillary's Hackers, Awan Brothers Saga Deepens Part 3 - YouTube]
    • Okay. Day 208 part 3
    • So yeah it's the school play
    • I'm really heading that way in terms of a conclusion
    • The reason being is that our little red riding-hood are Kelsey Mulka.
    • She barely knew Seth Rich, and she's in Michigan at the time, she's not there in DC, 89 minute phone call to somebody in DC
    • What happened is Joe Capone knew Seth Rich
    • Joe Capone owns what they call a proprietary--it's the same thing as the Awan brothers.
    • When the guy comes in, you don't want him having a credit card footprint with the rental car agency.
    • You don't want a credit card footprint with any hotels. You don't want a credit card footprint with any meals or any drinks
    • So Capone agreed to give drinks and meals to--as a part of the service--that's why he's go to the White House three days before, he's acting as a proprietary for White House visitors--which is fine.
    • He might think that he's actually doing the right thing for national security, to enable CIA guys and FBI guys to meet, which is great, I'm not saying there's Joe Capone knows what's happening
    • Now the two guys that pick him up it's called it it's called the strip club close--you go over the guy, "hey how's it going I see you're wearing in Wisconsin Judah buh-buh-buh-buh hey man you ever hear about Wonderland Wonderland is awesome--listen let me show you some pictures..."
    • They show him the pictures of the--super hottie from Guatemala that they brought in
    • And then he, "oh yeah yeah yeah let's go over there,"
    • Get enough drinks in in buying drinks but all of a sudden they go over there they drive over to Howard
    • They have a little roll up--which I sat that I watched it a little roll up garage with the ambulance in it--
    • They throw him in the ambulance, and your interrogation happens the ambulance
    • Propofol him, interrogation. Which is fine--they need to find out: "who did you talk to?"
    • Nobody's going to kill Seth Rich without saying, "who did you talk to?"
    • I'm going to say this again NGA data NSA data FBI data CIA data and ODNI exist across the board is going to exist in all the five eyes nations as well Hillary has already peanut buttered it all out
    • So any of those organizations.
    • MI6 CSIS in Canada, Australia, New Zealand just look at the data from that night the metadata
    • Again forget the actors
    • Go to the back of the scenery and poke the scenery, and see if it's real
    • If they have the metadata with the laptop, on the phone, they can end all of all the speculation, by just publishing the phone, and that laptop metadata
    • When Little Red Riding Hood doesn't act like Little Red Riding Hood after the play, and says get away from me you creep: she's not the girlfriend, she's little red riding hood. {{911bs translation: "girlfriend is a fake"}}
    • When the woodsman that saves Little Red Riding Hood doesn't act like the Woodsman after the play is over-- the police--normally who are leading searches, and actively trying to help the investigation, they're getting huge groups together, and forced posses, and bikes posses, and all kinds of people with different--lights and everything to do searches, when they don't act like the woodsman. [When] They say, "hey buddy you need help: that was a play--I was some woodsman in--Little Red Riding Hood."
    • {{911bs translation: "police are a fake"}}
    • And the third character--you knew I was going to bring the wolf in didn't you?--the third character is Mike Wagner at worldwide--Mossad worldwide MWW
    • My Grandma what a big teeth you have? Did you do to Flint water crisis?
    • Did you tell them to not put the orthophosphate in the thing? Because that's what caused the Flint Crisis, that's going to make the pipes flake. You know that right?
    • So anyway.
    • What I think what happened is going to be the kill-the-killer scenario.
    • Same thing that happened down with in the mosque in Virginia
    • You got your--that's why with the Pakistan Embassy, because it's going to be a Masood type of guy, he's going to pick up two Guatemalan guys something like that
    • It's gonna be variations on the theme. Could be Hells Angels, but I don't think they want the footprints
    • But anyway, you take Seth Rich over to the to the garage over there at Howard--it's only a couple blocks
    • With the ambulance in it, and then you kill-the-killers.
    • I think it the next day kids are burned in Fairfax Virginia--the bodies are unidentified as it murder the next day
    • So that's to me that looks just like a cover killing, I mean that's just what they get in in Long Island--same thing kill-the-killer.
    • Oldest trick in the book these kids fall for it every time
    • So I but--the watermelon embassy Guatemalan Embassy is an endless fount of kids, that will kill, because they've done it in, as kids in it with--in the Central America
    • So I know this is long explanation, but
    • Step one: the set up.
    • Capone sets up make sure that Seth Rich is getting free drinks and get drunk
    • Step two:
    • You bring in two Guatemalans or whoever the third party is, the dopey third party that thinks they're going to be CIA agents one day.
    • You get them to take them over to the ambulance, you get rid of them the next day at Fairfax. You burn them up.
    • Then you bring Seth Rich.
    • You fire those starter gun at 420, that signals everybody: we're going to put the plan in motion.
    • The cop motorcycle cops don't know any better. They come there. The ambulance is just leaving, heading off the MedStar.
    • you go to Medstar, you've got twenty seven-year-old organs
    • So it's like, "F YOU Seth Rich, we're going to use your damn organs. *And what's left, we're going to grind up and make into pet treats. Because we hate you."
    • And it's the old F YOU, the old CIA F YOU.
    • Justice in the end--that's kind of how they think.
    • And I think that's pretty well laid out.
    • Again if I'm wacky conspiracy theorist, then just produce the metadata.
    • Just produce the phone. Produce the laptop.
    • We'll have this whole thing or show me the the reel from Lou's City Grill
    • Or Joe Capone, you can come forward, and do a press conference, you've got all those options,
    • Or and if Dr. Eowan, I'm ready to come to Washington right now talk to Dr. Iowan
    • We can talk about exactly the admission process
    • We can look at all the cameras at the hospital
    • I don't think anybody's going to take me up on my challenge of poking the scenery that's part three
  • [Day 208.4. Hillary's Hackers, Awan Brothers Saga Deepens Part 4 - YouTube]
    • NO Captioning
    • OK Day 208. Part 4.
    • So a lot of what I do is shape searching. So I'm trying to direct the searches towards metadata that will kind of poke a hole in the fake scenery
    • Poke a hole in the alternative descriptions with Trump and the Russians.
    • I don't have a big staff of people that I can do that with like Jeff Sessions does
    • Or I don't have subpoena powers like he does
    • Some of this stuff has to be done either by Judicial Watch or somebody who is in the Government currently.
    • That's why I keep going to the data sources.
    • I keep saying. It's in the NGA, you can go over it, ODNI Dan Burton at the ODNI can get it
    • It's in a lot of different places.
    • As well as overseas partners
    • That's why I keep saying that: there's 10 different places this data is.
    • I keep going to the metadata of the tranches Seth Rich is going to send, I think it's going to be six different tranches.
    • Tranch I think means slice in French-- of data
    • And the first thing that Gavin McFadden is going to want, are the high rollers--the one to five million bracket or quintile or fortile
    • And then if that goes through and it all goes well they're going to ask for the next one about 2 weeks later or something like that.
    • It's going to be a February, March, April, May kind of thing, I think.
    • I think its going to start early on.
    • But I think Seth Rich was onto this, you know, robbing Peter to pay Paul
    • Robbing Bernie people to pay for Hillary People
    • And following the phones is going to be important as well
    • Who those phones went to, and who currently still uses a Blackberry phone
    • It could be that it's not just the 31 Democrats currently in the Congress, but it could be up to 80 Democrats that we're talking about--are the Hillacrats
    • So following their phones in the conspiracy is going to be important as well
    • I'm just adding to the resistance of the people who want to shut this down, but I'm also adding to the metadata.
    • So, for instance, Seth Rich I think worked for a Senatorial Candidate. I can't remember his name right off the bat.
    • I think He may have worked on the Kerry campaign, way back when he worked for Creighton, but again I'm not sure.
    • You're going to look at that. You're going to look at what counties that person represented, or if they are a US House of Representative. Look at what Counties they represneted or what Cities.
    • Then look at expenditure anomalies
    • So you're going to see...What they're going to do is make the Bernie people look like they are financially irresponsible
    • That's the cover
    • Whoever Seth Rich is working for, they're going to say, "oh we gave them all this money / they lost it all / there were improprieties"
    • Hillary always projects out what she's doing to the other...what she's doing to the people.
    • That's the best defense, is to attack--that's her M.O. So you've gotta know that. And then look for that.
    • So look for anomalies, for campaign anomalies with Bernie Democrats--progressive Democrats.
    • Then look for miracle stories by the different folks that have Weiner "trusted staff" secure phones
    • That's the kind of thing where it builds momentum, so the Jeff Sessions of the world go, "oh my god this is right"
    • At some point the penny drops, the dime drops and people go, "oh my god this is right"
    • You just have to keep adding--it's kind of like adding weights on a scale
    • At some point, there's a tipping point where people go, "oh my god this is right".
    • And again, it's all of metadata. You don't have to have any opinions. You don't have to write any treatments or anything like that or quote any articles
    • You just keep adding the metadata.
    • So it's going to be the dollars--this is what Seth Rich was trying to do with the dollars--he had the detail of all the dollars.
    • So look at the Guccifer spreadsheets, start looking to see what zipcodes those came from and what counties especially
    • And that's going to break the case open--without even the 650k emails, without even Seth's 44k emails
    • And again, Sessions--all Sessions has to do is say, "hey at this time, between these two IP addresses, this mail server connected, and this much data transferred, and that TCPIP handshake connect. This is what went from router A to router B. And I have that at NSA, I have that at NGA, I have that at CIA and FBI."
    • So somebody's got to come forward and say, "ah the first traunch was this day. The second traunch was this day. The third traunch was that day."
    • And everybody's going to say, "oh, this is what actually happened."
    • So that's where I'm going. I can't--Like I said I don't have investigative powers.
    • I try to set up Judicial Watch: I try to tee things up for Judicial Watch and say, "Hey, let's FOIA the death certificate. Let's FOIA the Hospital Records. Etc"
  • [Day 208.5. Hillary's Hackers. Awan Brothers Saga Deepens Part 5 - YouTube] *Okay. Day 208 Part 5
    • So I'm going to start doing what I said this morning, which is time correlating things between Seth Rich, and Shawn Lucas
    • That's really going to say that's going to give us a pretty good indication of where the tranches start getting sent out
    • Because what happens is Shawn Lucas goes to the headquarters of the DNC, and--that famous "you got served" video
    • He doesn't do that until he knows that the data all the spreadsheets have been sent to WikiLeaks.
    • He doesn't go in there knowing that, because he thinks he's of a mind that WikiLeaks has all the data so he's got support
    • So even if Hillary destroys all the spreadsheets, he's still okay
    • So that if somebody could get the date for that, I'm on the road unfortunately.
    • But if you could just in a timeline, in a text timeline just date, and then what happened that day, like Jim Jones pushed in front of train--April 23rd let's say. Michael Ratner dies, May 19 thinking around those times. Okay.
    • First Guccifer leak appears with donor list of above a million dollars--I want to see June. Something like that.
    • Julian Assange does a interview with that British guy who has a British television program on "inside whatever", saying he has data that will damage Hilary whatever June 12 this is the DNC leaks now
    • First tweet that Julian Assange says Debbie Wasserman-Schultz did something bad to Bernie, all the things--that made Bernie look bad or stole things from Bernie, whatever.
    • And then it's that Shawn Lucas is going to be somewhere in there--where he goes,"you got served"
    • It's somewhere in June I think. But that's after that's going to be when the last tranche has gone the last tranche is going to be, I think, when Shawn Lucas goes hey our case is airtight I got every county now in the hands of WikiLeaks
    • There's no way can Hillary can get out of this.
    • He doesn't he doesn't realize that Hillary has--intelligence community contacts
    • So now I have to go to the parents of Seth Rich, and give you a motivation [as to] why I think--they're really his parents--but the motivation for them not wanting to research the murder anymore.
    • And the reason is Offet Air Force Base {?}
    • Now if you don't know Offet I think of it is o FF et or OFS UT, I can't remember but it's an Omaha Nebraska.
    • And it's actually where the big time drugs were coming in, and and big time guns going the other direction
    • And it was created by George Bush
    • The Mena Airport was always the throw: if we ever have to throw somebody away, and sacrifice somebody, we'll do Mena.
    • Because it's these little planes--Barry seal flying these Cessnas, and it's little Park o meter.
    • And it's at that time Hillary Clinton was a nobody. Bill Clinton was a nobody. And we'll throw this.
    • But we don't want to give up OFFET because Offet is the big operation
    • And of course everybody knows all about the the Finders case, and all that.
    • All those Finders things all that ritual it's not the pedophilia you think it is--it's a it's a quiet Network, it's the blood network, to keep everybody quiet about what's happening at Offet
    • So all the recruiting, the use of military recruiters for the most part, I think it's going to be Army look for kids at about 16 years old, where they're going out, and saying, "hey you look good in a uniform, why don't you come to this party?"
    • And your Army recruiter are going to be your Finders.
    • Usually Army, but there's going to be other ones, there's going to be Navy and there's going to be Air Force, but it's usually Army. And they're going to be recruited to these parties in the Omaha area
    • What I was saying before, when Hillary is going after the money from other Democrats, and then feeding it in to Democrats, in Hillacrats. The Hillacrats are going to be in areas of ratlines
    • So they're going to be in those areas where like Offet Air Force bases
    • Now something happened, where they started draining money. Like I think there's two times where there's $300,000 drained, and something happened with Seth Rich's favorite candidate, and they had a falling out. And that's what is the causal factor that starts this whole thing
    • So that's at the beginning of the timeline, and I think that's going to be around February.
    • Look for two stories about $300,000 mismanagement, and whoever the the whoever the Congressman is for Seth Rich.
    • The campaign he's working on or maybe it's a Senator, but it's going to be around Offet Air Force Base.
    • This is the Real--Mena was always the little, goofy, thing that they could always throw away if they ever got discovered/
    • And Offet was the big big dog.
    • I'm talking off it was C-130s, where it's coming in DynCorp, massive, it's not in little nose cone in a Cessna
    • So and--the Barry Seal--it's funny I ran into a guy who used to write for the Christian Science Monitor--journalist this morning. Names also George and I won't say his last name
    • But I laughed and I said well--the Christian Science reading rooms were always the CIA pamphlet room, right?
    • I mean if you couldn't find a Salvation Army, they would tell the CIA agents--go find the Christian Science reading room, they got a basement.
    • So that's why I introduced the Salvation Army so early on--that's going to keep coming back and--Barry Seal was killed in front of the Salvation Army
    • So sorry I know it's an investment in the series, but all the stuff keeps coming back.
    • The other thing you have came out, was there was a foreign doctor, attending foreign doctor, just happened to be in an attending foreign Dr. on rotation that night, for when the surgical resident was there
    • So and he didn't know the procedure of the exploratory laparotomy, where they make an incision in your midline, and then they put a laparoscope in, and start looking around for bleeding
    • So he didn't know that procedure--well that's funny because--my son's the first year <
  • [Day 208.6. Hillary's Hackers, Awan Brothers Saga Deepens, Part 6 - YouTube]
    • Okay. Day
    • << GPS Aya: "Take Interchange on the Right" >>
    • Sorry Day 208 Part Six
    • So Shawn Lucas. His name might be Michael Shawn Lucas. His date of death was August 2nd 2006.
    • When he went to 430 South Capitol Street in
    • << GPS Aya: "use the right two lanes to take exit 27 West, then keep right at the fork." >>
    • Then you're not going to know where I am...that's exactly where I am
    • So anyway, August 2nd 2016, Michael Shawn Lucas, I believe his name is.
    • Died in his bathroom.
    • I guess from some kind of overdose.
    • One month earlier on July 1st he had been at 430 South Capitol Street
    • << GPS: Aya: keep right at the fork >>
    • In Washington DC, at the Democratic National Committee.
    • You can google that video.
    • It's called "you've been served"[1][2] he made it with a filmmaker
    • << GPS: Continue on i-495 west for 5 miles >>
    • So we just got the live with that I'm going to just record this
    • So anyway, I'd like more information about him.
    • I'd like to know exactly what his address was where he died.
    • I'd like to know exactly what law firm he worked for--there's some argument out there about whether he was an attorney, studying to be an attorney, he was just a process server, you have to be an officer of the court, to serve papers, but don't have to be an attorney
    • So I would like that question answered.
    • If people can give me that, I would appreciate it.
    • I would like to go to visit his ex-girlfriend his parents etc talk to them
    • I believe that there was a connection a friendship connection between Shawn Lucas, and Seth Rich, also I think what came to light today was there was five different social media accounts established, by Seth Rich.
    • He kind of thought of himself as a panda--so he's kind of jovial about a little bit of extra weight--being 27 and had a little extra weight
    • So it was Pandas 4 for Bernie; Panda for Bernie; and he changes the Pandas for Bernie; and then Panders for Bernie 2016
    • I believe that those although social media accounts were used in some way to communicate about when we would arrange a syncing at Lou's City Bar and Grille with another than Shawn Lucas
    • So I need more information about Shawn Lucas to prove that
    • You probably all know where I'm going, but we'll tune in a little bit later tonight

  • No Part Seven
  • [Day 208.8. Hillary'Hillarys, Awan Brothers Saga Deepens Part 8 - YouTube]
    • This is Riches.
    • It's nice bar.
    • I think this Rich would have been over there in that corner, over yonder, because that's where all the big screens are this way
    • Sorry about the last video {{GPS cutins}}
    • But I think the one thing that I noticed is: this is a really nice upscale a place.
    • And it's near a shopping centerr.
    • All these places would have great cameras security equipment
    • So he was like I said it would have been in that distance corner over there, I believe
    • Or in this corner over here
    • So it's getting a little bit more crowded now the happy hour crowd is starting to come in,
    • And I'll keep reporting as the day goes on
  • [Day 208.9 Hillary's Hackers, Awan Brothers Saga Deepens, Part 9 - YouTube]
    • {{ George points out Seth Rich's Plaque on the wall of Lou's City Bar, points to his chair }}
    • I just want to walk out real quick, just show you the path.
    • The gal who I just talked to said she saw him very frequently all the time
    • So that has been established that he did come here a lot.
    • You can see the Best Buy, you see cameras up there on the top.
    • I don't know if you see up there high
    • But--this is a very high-end area, see the police are here in droves
    • So we're gonna walk down the street.
    • One of the gals said that he was at Acre121, so he used to go there as well
    • So I just look at this and see--it's really high-end
    • You would think there would be all kinds of security cameras
    • An Arab Red Panera Bread, Panda Express, Five Guys Burgers here
    • Also a public transportation for the Washington metro--wonder why he didn't take the metro?
    • But anyway there's got to be some Bed Bath and Beyond Marshals Bank of America don't they have cameras?
    • Just looking at this high-end office building over here.
    • Columbia Heights Stations
    • So not a Tele-development, Potbelly Pizza, CVS pharmacy, walking down this is 14th Street--just seems like really nice Street
    • I walk a little bit farther
    • So these are the first steps you would have taken he's getting a tremendous amount of law enforcement around here
    • As well unity health carr--You got unity health care there. I would assume that there would be some kind of camera on the front unity health care.
    • Got Trinity towers
    • Will just keep walking down the street. Sonvenience store--unities convenient care.
    • Got sprint preferred retail--a lot of retail. High-end retail
    • So keep walking down here Columbia 7:11 right here. Surveillance cameras under dentist.
    • This would have been the first place you would have went down this <
