What a lovely story Ghostridden.

Many thanks.

I think we need a thread about stories.  Whether abroad or at home.

they pretend to be by taking coffee way to seriously.

But you gotta love the grit of the outback.

Been there a few times.  Last time I headed down the south coast of Sydney.  I was staying in Manyana, near Ulladulla.  One day, while out in the water surfing at spot called Green Island, this guy paddles up to me and just starts talking to me -  and the whole time I'm like, I know you're speaking English but I have no idea what you're saying.   He asked me a question and I literally asked him three times to repeat it so I could understand it.   He was visibly frustrated.   Finally after a lengthy discussion and much slower speaking,  he was asking me if I had been to the pie shop in Ulladulla,  and had mentioned three different meat pies that were quite tasty.   He had also asked me about the banana smoothie at this market in Ulladulla and that if I had not been there I should try it.  This took about a half an hour of articulate deciphering.   Oh, and he had also asked me about how the conditions were the day before -  when I answered though he had no idea what I was saying.

Are you triggered?

It's not really his talk about Trump, it's the fact that he is severely misinformed, or just blatantly prejudiced.  It's the lack of logic, reason, and intelligence that irks me the most..  People see or hear what they want to hear - it's a willing choice, but being willingly ignorant is never a proper substitute for well informed reason and rationale.  He sounds like he's just regurgitating and incoherently babbling on about what he saw on Fox News the past few months and trying to format it into a faux intellectual interview.  First clue of his muppet lineage is his bleached hair - horrible job, looks like he just bought on off-the-shelf bleach kit from Revlon.   No matter what your gender, you will always have less credibility as a fake blonde.  But,  he's right about one thing – Trump is  antiestablishment and he pretty much is flipping a big middle finger to that establishment,  but it doesn't mean he has any rational solutions to the problems confronting our country.   If anything, he is got a lot of people thinking,  which means that if Hillary Clinton becomes president she will be way more under the microscope than any president in US history,  considering how much she has lied, and how much scrutiny she has come under in light of recent events and while as Secretary of State.  Trust me,  I don't like the bitch one bit.   Trump is definitely good at one thing, and that is riling up the American people and distracting them from the fact that he really offers no solution to anything -  distracted with anger.   And the sad part is that the media plays into this.   The true problems confronting this country are completely being ignored.

Was there some melter in this thread saying Trump was not only going to win but win big?  are we going to talk about "unskewed" polls again? How did that work out last election?

Oh here we go: http://www.mediaite.com/tv/trump-campai … mp-voters/

You really have to be a special shade of stupid to believe this nonsense.

Furry, Pricer?  Are you guys still standing in the shade of the magnificent Trump Tree?

Sure enough, delegates in attendance at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland in July were given canvas tote bags, stamped with the Trump slogan, and filled with copies of Crippled America, as well as Kleenex and Make America Great Again! cups, hats, and T-shirts. Delegates were also given plastic fetus figurines.

Wtf?

Just watched Vanilla Sky - got awful reviews and a poor Rotten Tomatoes score, but I actually thought it was excellent. I might be in a good mood mind.

Suicide Squad? I had to sit through the trailer when I watched the new Bourne film - absolute fucking bollocks - why anyone would even consider watching it over the age of 8 is beyond me.

Vanilla Sky offered an oblique stab at "isolation" and a grim, but oftentimes, darkly humorous take on existentialism.  With a resounding, yet dampened thud, the "aloneness" that confronts all of us is cleverly un-mapped and deconstructed to such an extent that you cannot but help to want to live life, instead of going through the motions.  Resigning myself to a feeling that we are all truly alone is as tangible in this film as awakening from a dream that for the first few minutes of  consciousness, you would swear that it was real.  Cryogenic Stasis or just a dream, the film leaves the door ajar just the slightest, so that the tiniest sliver of light pierces through.


And they made good use of Radiohead's Everything it it's right place

Indeed.

Please, please...Mr. Norman.

Saw "Hell Or High Water" on Friday.  Forget about backgrounds, timelines, sub-plots, and character development.   This film drops you right in the middle of the action like a bomb.  None of that matters because you find yourself immersed in a timeless, yet updated Neo-Western cops & robbers thriller.  Gritty, raw, yet stunningly beautiful cinematography and outstanding performances flank this masterpiece of a film.  I only wished it was longer.  Fantastic soundtrack as well.  10/10.  One of the best films I've seen in recent years.

If it's true, I'm not surprised.  Trump is all about himself.

Picked up the Nubreed from Habischman.  Not bad at all.

i've finally found a what's donald's end game theory that i buy. the idea is that donald is planing to start some sort of news outlet. he is amassing a huge customer base, and in light of the people he has recently surrounded himself with, i think that is very plausible. ailes, bannon, and trump poses a terrifying prospect. however, the thought of furry sipping his morning coffee from a trump news coffee mug does put a smile on my face.

I think Pricer might be down for some Trump slippers replete with detachable toupee/toe warmers for those chilly mornings with said Trump mug and Free Trade Mexican Coffee.  Trump is all about himself.  If he loses, then he still wins.
