    These "Involuntary Celibacy" Incels

    These blokes never heard of wanking?

    The Shield

    Yeah there's some boss tunes on it. It's got the honour of having the only good Coldplay song on it, Kingdom Come, when Lem gets arrested. Full list here. https://www.tunefind.com/show/the-shield

    Can see One of them getting killed to be honest, then a riot starting outside one of his hotels and not stopping.

    The Shield

    Have loved watching this again on 4OD (yep agree about the awful adverts though!) I'd forgotten just how good it is. A lot of its best bits are subtle, the looks, the glances, the camerawork. For example, I didn't realise until repeated viewing that Vic is sort of responsible for Aceveda's rape because he sticks that bong down the fella's throat. It's never explicitly stated like it would be in a lesser show. Also, Mara, what a twat. Wonderfully written and acted shitbag.

    Best James Bond?

    It should be the wee man from Bodyguard, Robb Stark. He should keep his Scottish accent too.

    Should Corbyn remain as Labour leader?

    Top stories on the news. Trump in racism outrage but Tory leadership candidates refuse to brand him racist. Corbyn tries to hide behind a pillar from news cameras. Honest.

    Best James Bond?

    When I go to certain European cities with weird sirens I like to pretend I'm jason bourne. If I hear one I'll turn into an alley quickly and put my finger in my ear.

    Best James Bond?

    Bourne is a weird one. I like the films, but one of the key building blocks of drama is that the hero faces jeopardy. I never feel that with Bourne, he could be in a room with 50 people and he'd kill them all. At no stage in any of the films is he not one step ahead of anyone chasing him.

    Best James Bond?

    It's chip-pissing pure and simple, that's all it is. He's someone to be killed off because of what he represents.

    Donald Trump

    You have to look at what is going on in the States in this context IMO. Reaganomics unleashed the power of pure unfettered greed and began the process of carving up and selling everything off. Bush, Clinton, Bush Jnr and Obama didn't really do enough to stop it. What happened was the desire for financial gain saw pretty much every aspect of American life get worse except for the very wealthy (this is basically what The Wire was all about, the slow death of an American city. Its docks, its industry, its working class, its politics, its schools, its local media). When the lives of ordinary people were eroded too far they no longer had the money to fire a consumer economy so the debt crisis found form. If people don't have any money because you've taken it all, lend them some back- like monopoly the game. They can't beat you but you can keep the game going a bit longer. The bubble burst. And it was at this precise moment in history that capitalism as we know it should have been reined in. You had Brown pumping up the banks and Obama essentially elected off the back of it, but nothing changed. The rich have got richer still, even turning the fallout of their own mess into a lucrative money spinner, buying up foreclosed houses, or the advent and expansion of debt and payday lending agencies. Underneath it all is this simmering rage of ordinary folk who know something is wrong but often can't articulate it. So others do it for them. We're in the middle now. Left on one side - genuine left for the first time in an age, and extreme right which is terrified by that fact. Trump is the totem poll around which its forces gather. He himself is just a hole in the air, but the republicans and their paymasters, the democrats who masquerade as the friend of the working man, the billionaire owned media - they're the real enemy. For all of that, the same applies over here. For Trump read Farage/Johnson, for Democrats read Labour, for Fox read Daily Mail. It's the end times of capitalism, just like it was in the 30s when then too we had a choice between left and right. Let's make sure we don't make the same mistake.

    Donald Trump

    He'll end up with his own TV show. Sean Spicer is currently teaching at Harvard. This is the thing, for all the bluster and the faux outrage the country is seriously mental.

    Donald Trump

    Is there any move to boycott companies that advertise with Fox News or sponsor Republican Senators, that would have a far better chance of turning the tables than Twitter outrage.
  13. Anyone want to club together and get some TLW shares in plane banners this season? All profits will go towards getting Fowler's God a Turkish shave.

    Best James Bond?

    It's lost its way a bit but is still watchable I think. Casino Royale was one of my favourite if not my favourite Bond film, although Moore is my favourite Bond. Classic Bond for me should be 10% Austin Powers IMO. You could actually combine Bond with an Avengers-style film and pull it off, i.e the mad genius with the laser attached to the top of mount Everest or whatever, but it went down the realism route instead.

    Best James Bond?

    I honestly don't understand what people mean when they say 'not in keeping'. I wonder how many SAS officer types like shagging, drinking and shooting people. A large percentage of them I imagine, and rightly so. For me, depicting that type of character is 'in keeping'. What isn't in keeping is making shit up, such as the notion that some woke motherfucker could make it through the ranks of the British parachute regiment while complaining to the rest of his unit that women's skirts are too short these days.
