re: Official "Mr. Robot" Season 1 Thread-(Ep1.9 )-"_zer0-day.avi"- (USA Network) - Bayou Sam
The shot of the popcorn machine at the end suggests it won't be exactly a happy working relationship (there's a gun inside it)....

re: Why not more Lovecraftian horror - Bayou Sam
[quote] listening to the old Lovecraft and REH horror [/quote] I don't have time to justify reading more stuff, but listening sounds like a good idea. Any recordings I should check out? Are you listening to the HPpodcast?...

re: Shakespeare was a pothead - Bayou Sam
Maybe, but this is of the dumbest literary interpretations I have ever seen in a respectable publication: [quote]Shakespeare's sonnets suggest he was familiar with the effects of both drugs. In Sonnet 76, he writes about “invention in a noted weed", which could be interpreted to mean that Shak...

re: Shakespeare was a pothead - Bayou Sam
[quote]Wait a minute, last I checked we weren't even 100% sure that William Shakespeare wasn't just somebody else's nom de plume. Did that get settled somewhere along the way?[/quote] This issue has long been settled. ...

re: How long until "d" is an acceptable replacement for "th" in the English languag? - Bayou Sam
Can't happen today because writing is paramount, more than ever before. In oral cultures change like this happens all the time--and there's nothing wrong with it. ...

re: John Waters or David Lynch? Who you got? - Bayou Sam
[quote]It shows how one reacts to the perversion of American dream. Lynch shudders with revulsion over the betrayal and calls it a night mare.[/quote] I don't think you're doing justice to the extent of Lynch's sympathy with "flyover America"--the simple goodness that makes his heroes so compelli...

re: John Waters or David Lynch? Who you got? - Bayou Sam
[quote]Other than A History of Violence and The Fly, I am not a fan. But, I can certainly see how that could be a more balanced subject for debate.[/quote] Videodrome?? Anyway, I actually think Lynch and Waters are more comparable than Lynch and Cronenberg--the former are both interested in th...

re: Batman (1989) - Bayou Sam
I prefer my Batman a bit hokey. The problem with the Nolan Batmans and most modern (DC) superhero movies is that are still really hokey, just unintentionally so. ...

re: As of July 25, 654 people have been killed by American police in 2015 - Bayou Sam
[quote]Sounds like there's more people failing to comply. Mess with the bull, you get the horns. [/quote] This opinion epitomizes the death-drive that makes up so much of American culture. ...

re: Batman (1989) - Bayou Sam
I prefer it to the Nolan pictures, though its main "contribution" to cinema, as another poster said, was how it was conceived as a merchandise machine--a movie less about making money on the movie than all the junk that would be spawned by the movie. Obviously this is the norm now for blockbusters. ...

re: Guy goes on a rant about True Detective's Season 2 Episode 4 - Bayou Sam
In perfectly Dorne-ish execution, the whole thing looks like it is shot on a Hollywood lot. And then the freeze frame?? What the heck are these people thinking? But "Ledo Amarilla" is apparently a reference to Ledoux and "yellow," so that makes it all better? No....

re: % of people that were offended before the MSM told them to be offended (Flag,etc - Bayou Sam
Outrage culture works the same way on both left and right. It's a product of new media. The confederate battle flag should've been taken down long before outrage culture existed. The statue controversy is a ludicrous piece of would-be vandalism. Though if you watch the city council people, it...

re: The fate of Stannis Baratheon - Bayou Sam
[quote]Just like anyone with eyes and a brain know Jon Snow is dead for good and that Melisandre doesn't know how to bring people back from the dead. ETA: Oh and Catelyn Stark is dead. No way she ever comes back. No possible way at all. We actually saw her get killed.[/quote] The only reason ...

re: What makes the quote "plastics" in The Graduate so meaningful? - Bayou Sam
[quote]Society was transitioning from this to seeing a life of freedom, squalor, and filth as a much preferable life.[/quote] Or: people were beginning to see that the cheap and vulgar crap produced by the "real world" was cheap and vulgar. "Plastics" is a metonymy for inauthenticity. Benjami...

re: Why do you think some liberals are Islamist apologists? - Bayou Sam
Well, what's he or she like? I know a number of Muslims. I went to high school with three or four Muslim families, had a very close friend (raised Catholic) who converted to Sunni Islam, and then deconverted to another more liberal and heterodox sect, knew some Muslims in college, and since have ...

[quote]Once again focusing on me and irrelevant issues. You claim you can "easily" do something. Yet it seems to be the only thing you can't do in this thread. You are such an intellectual heavyweight.[/quote] Is this supposed to masquerade as a point? I answered the OP's question, whic...
