  1. Watching "Please Like Me", an interesting Australian Dramedy with a gay male lead.

     

    Got to admit, Australian drama-comedy don't resemble anything like US or UK comedies.

      Hey, teddy.  :hug: I'll keep an eye out for that one. Meanwhile, Mi Mejor Amigo looks promising, but I need to get a copy first.  :)

      I love that series. My daughter and I watched the two seasons shown on Canada's CBC. The lead is brilliant... the whole cast is... his dad is hilarious, and his mom could have her own show. :) 

  2. Watching Ossan's Love, Japan's most provocative gay-centre love dramady

     

    Basically, a straight 33 year old guy, who has never had luck with women and can't take care of himself, finds out two people have fallen in love with him. Thing is, both are guys and he is realizing he is actually falling in love with one of them too.

     

    It's tame by most of our standards, but still interesting to see on a TV drama beyond Will and Grace

  3. World Champion Red Sox!

     

    We won it all

     

    Time for a parade in Boston, again (I never get tired of it)

  4. Quote

     

    "Do you know who you are and what you are?"

     

    "I do, but I don't think you do."

     

    "How so?"

     

    "Your questions define you, the unknown creates fear, and when fear does not suit you, then you redefine the question and its reality."

     

    "Yet, most prefers questions and mysterious conspiracies to answers or simple truths. What would people live for otherwise if they no longer needed to fear?"

     

    "Maybe, the hope there is a better future"

     

    "Now, who is trying to redefine reality?"

     

     

    Thought I'd try out a line

  5. I am binge watching Once Upon a Time, didn't watch it during its original run

     

    Is that normal?

      I didn't watch Supernatural until I caught on a TNT rerun Season 6's The French Connection. I then binged watch seasons 1 - 8, so I could catch up. Now I watch it religiously.

       

      So, yes... it is normal.

      I watched Once Upon a Time for several seasons. Lost interest when they added a certain "icy" character. I just wish the story had gone in a few different directions than the ones it took. I might have to watch it again on Netflix.  :)

      Aye,

       

      Season 1-3 were actually really good, Season 1 caught my eye most of all with its refreshing take on Fairy tales. You are right though @Page Scrawler, the "icy characters" seem to have dragged it down.

       

      I think the handling of late season 3 with a certain :"Green" magical villain was mishandled a bit, there were so many more possibilities that they opened up, a Disney-Multiverse without being Marvel related

  6. Just won 2 tickets to Hamilton!

  7. "Live Long and Prosper" Does that mean we have to find Romulus next? They kind of go together in Star trek
  8. To all my friends and readers in American Southeast, stay safe and out of harm's way.

     

     

  9. Whether you are a fan of Star Trek, Star Wars, Battlestar Galactica, Babylon 5, or any number of space dramas, one thing is inescapable about our vision of space exploration: we wil need something big to shoot with. I know this can devolve into a political issue rather easily, but I want to discuss the technology aspect. Take Lasers for example, scientists have been developing theoretical designs for laser weapons since the 1980's and now we're seeing real life applications: Beyond lasers, other weapons are on the experiumental table from plasma based bolts to electromagnetic disruption technology to old fashioned rail guns There's a lot of technology to cover and a lot of innovations around the world
  10. Lol, seriously this is really funny recap of Godfather part 1

     

    It's not really millennial thing though, just a modern take on mafia

     

     

  11. I feel old :(

      and what's wrong with that? I'll take old and wise over young and foolish any day. :hug:

      You're still our sweet, huggable teddy bear. :hug:

  12. This chapter is really hard to write for Book 2 of 0's and 1's, so I will share with readers its problem: I feel like I can't skip an important event, but if I write it, I am never going to hear the end of it. This will mark probably the darkest chapter I have ever written, maybe one of the darkest chapters on GA. I am making sure the guidelines are followed, nothing graphic or explicit, but the implication is more than enough with a dark imagination. And to top it all off, I have to make sure people know why it's needed for the future of the story and the future of the characters. This ain't gratuitous plot point, it's a revolutionary spark, a call to arms against an injustice that transcends LGBT fiction. It's something our society and many of us are guilty as indirect participants. I call this chapter by a nickname, "the Crucible". If this chapter gets completed, the rest of the story can follow, but it must be done right or nothing else after it will matter. Anyone who has any ideas, thoughts, or is just curious as to what I am doing, feel free to PM me.
  13. I am enjoying this British series on Amazon called

    "A Very English Scanda"

     

     

  14. So family Guy was originally meant to be a kid's show

     

    It's not just a Simpson ripoff, mind blown :o :lol:

     

     

  15. Happy 4th of July or US Independence Day, though the Declaration of Independence was signed over the entire summer historically :P

     

    As a treat, I will give people another excerpt from Book 2, this time dealing with a theme of the Declaration of Independe3nce or in effect its antithesis:

     

    "Justice, what does it mean? You believe your actions are just, because they support your beliefs, your view of the world. What if I tell you that your version of Justice is hurting people, even killing people. Is that still Justice to all those harmed and dead? Those who argue for Justice are selfish fools, who do not realize the harm in the concept. Only in supremacy of moral truth and absolute resolve can there be an "enforced peace". Justice leads to anarchy."
