re: Directors with very random filmographies - Baloo
[quote]George Miller did the Mad Max series and the Babe movies.[/quote] DAMN IT! That's the first name that popped in my head. Which is far cooler than David Fincher getting his start doing music videos for Madonna. ...

re: Who is your AL MVP? - Baloo
[quote] Exactly -- I can see it going to any of the 3 leading candidates. But I don't think you can add in, "well, Trout should have won it last year" as an argument for him to get it this year (as I think a previous poster kind of alluded to?). [/quote] I'm more arguing the opposite. People sub...

re: Favorite Gene Wilder movie or scene - Baloo
[quote]They asked him, "Why?" He said, "Because after that, the audience will never know if I'm lying or telling the truth." [/quote] That letter that's being posted online today is amazing. He really put thought into these roles in a way I'm not sure many actors, particularly comedians, do. ...

re: Favorite Gene Wilder movie or scene - Baloo
The tunnel scene from Willy Wonka. I try to imagine it in the safe kids films of today. Wonka was an insane, dangerous man... which is part of the appeal. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8X48RiKQmFQ...

re: Who is your AL MVP? - Baloo
It seems every year we come out up with an excuse to not give the MVP to Trout. Sort of like when Shaq was dominating the NBA. And that's how he ended up with only one MVP. We're going to look back in 30 years and wonder how the hell Trout only won one MVP. ...

re: Why wont the NFL punish Kaepernick? - Baloo
Honestly, no one gave a shite about Simone Biles not putting her hand over her heart. I didn't even hear about it until about 36 hours after it happened, when the internet was swept up in outrage at Bill Plaschke's remarkably stupid column. Hell, even BREITBART took Simone's side in that debate. P...

re: Gene Wilder passed away - Baloo
He is literally the only actor my daughter knows. She noticed that Willy Wonka and Dr. Frankenstein were the same guy, and now she points it out every time. No, she hasn't seen Blazing Saddles. I'm not THAT bad of a parent. So, at 4 years old, my daughter's favorite actor has died. ...

re: MTV used to be so cool - Baloo
MTV did a snarky live blog of the 1984 VMA's to highlight how lame we all were back in the day. And what happened is it actually highlighted the diversity of music and opinion on the channel in its early days, which is sort of what made it great. It played everything. A quick list of the artists tha...

[quote]"The solution is to not give attention to him"? Every sports tv & radio show in the country is making this a major talking point. "Not bothering anybody"?

re: Can the ACC Get 2 in the Playoff? - Baloo
What matters more is how the other conferences shake out. If you have, say, a 2 or even 3-loss Pac-12 and Big 12 champ, then yeah, I could see the committee taking a 1-loss FSU/Clemson loser over them. ...

re: The Millennial Whoop - Baloo
I saw an interesting twitter discussion in which a minor artist copped to putting the whoops in her songs so she could sell them to commercials and pay her bills. It's what allows her to make music for a living. Which is an interesting point. ...

re: Most Interesting Comic Book Superheroes/Characters - Baloo
Doom is a great villain, but I don't find him quite as interesting as most. He's a guy bent on conquering the world. Yawn. That doesn't interest me as much as flawed characters or villains who truly see themselves as heroes. Actually, I probably should have Magneto on the list, who is by far the mos...

re: The future of viewing live sports - Baloo
NBC provided uninterrupted feeds of all the sports online for free, and people just bitched about their TV coverage because fans were unwilling to go online to watch their sports. I think we're further from the livestreaming world than we think. We'll have early adopters like now who get their s...
