What are your initial thoughts about the historic Comey hearings today?Marcus Snowden (The Artist Formerly Known as msnowden1)ParticipantJune 8, 2017 at 10:47 am #1202114641
That was some amazing stuff. I struggle to see a scenario in which Trump and the White House wasn’t severely damaged by Comey’s testimony today. First off, Comey called the President of the United States a liar numerous times.
Then, Comey said that he wrote down his conversations with Trump because, essentially, he knew that Trump is a pathological liar and he thought he would lie during his conversations. In other words, Comey basically said what most Americans (myself included) think about the President and his personality.
Comey then alluded to the fact that Mueller is investigating Trump for obstruction of justice, which is a disaster for this White House. That’s also probably why Trump didn’t tweet during the hearing and why he is having his lawyer speak for him later on.
In what is the contender for the biggest news of the hearing, Comey took what Trump said re: Flynn as a “directive” to end the investigation into him. That is a textbook definition of obstruction of justice, in my view.
We’ve also found out that Jeff Sessions is in deep shit and he may need to hire some lawyers of his own. The guy should’ve been gone to begin with for lying under oath, but I digress.
Also, one last point, what in the hell was wrong with John McCain? It was truly worrying to watch him ask questions about whether Hillary Clinton ordered the Russians to hurt her own campaign. He wasn’t coherent today, and it was horrifying.June 8, 2017 at 11:00 am #1202114664
No new question so I’ll answer Atyp’s:
What do I think? I think it’s a pain sifting through all the fake, brain-washing “news” to find out what’s really going on.
What did you think of Wonder Woman?June 8, 2017 at 1:21 pm #1202114764
I liked it, not BEST PICTURE worthy like Logan… but worthy of a couple Sound nominations, and I wouldn’t even begrudge Patty Jenkins getting a nomination, for her historic breakthrough for female directors.
What is your most annoying conspiracy theory of all time, and why? Mine is ANYTHING to do with George Soros (liberal “paid protesters, he has a firm in Brazil that counts up all our votes for the Presidency, he sold out his dad to the Nazis!), even though most people would say the Sandy Hook shooting would be the most annoying. For me, Sandy Hook is the most offensive, but the Soros theories have been factually disproved so EASILY, so many goddamn times over and over again, and have just been repeated to death OVER AND OVER AGAIN. My dad believes all the crazy Soros theories, which really saddens me.June 8, 2017 at 1:31 pm #1202114777
“The Month of April Is The Government’s Blood Sacrifice Season” kind of speaks for itself LOL. It’s just stupid and there’s obviously nothing to back it up.

Holocaust denial. It’s disgusting.
Do you follow politics from other countries?June 8, 2017 at 5:54 pm #1202114972
Not really unless they are mentioned in the US. to be fair, I’m seventeen.
What’s the youngest, cute moment you can remember when you were very little?June 9, 2017 at 4:20 am #1202115346
I was 4 years old. I was walking to the store or something one day with my older sister and my parents for the usual shit. You know, to get groceries? Is that the word for it?
Anyway, when we arrived there, we started purchasing whatever we needed and when we were about to gear up to leave, I see this little guy, don’t know if he was the same age range as me, crying over something.
My sister, out of some sort of compassion, goes up to the kid and asks, “What’s wrong, dear?” The kid responds, “I’m upset”. The kid’s dad tells us that his child wanted some money given to him to get a gift. I was just standing there, doe-eyed, and you know children, they tend to get a little antsy standing around, so me and my parents walk back home.
It turned out that my sister was so touched by this little boy that she decided to stay and hear him out. And man did she get her heart torn out of her chest, and if I was older, I likely would have understood too.
It turned out that the kid’s mother passed away several days earlier, leaving the boy and the father grief-stricken. She suffered debilitating strokes, and one night, her brain simply couldn’t take it anymore. She was rushed to hospital, and died shortly after.
The kid’s earliest memory of his mother was them playing with toys, building instruments, blocks and so on. And he wanted money to buy a toy truck that he used to play with his mother when he was a baby, to dedicate to her at her funeral. It costed a couple of dollars, so me and my family go back home, ask my parents for some money at the front door of our house and we walk all the way back to the store before the kid and his parent left.
And then, I remember walking up with my sister, like a little toddler, and seeing him hurt and upset. It made me upset, so before I also start crying, I extend my hand, with money in it, and pass it to the child. This makes him stop crying, and he does look happy about it, but also surprised and confused for some reason, and his dad looks at me and says, “Thank you, guy. You and your sister.” They then went off to buy that toy.
But before we left, the dad stops us, and he looks a little teary-eyed. He then passes us an invitation to the mother’s funeral, set for in the fall. I then see the father and the boy walk off, the father completely overwhelmed by sadness.
A couple weeks later, we arrive at the funeral, to a large mass of people, all visibly shaken by the mother’s death.
I then see the kid place the toy truck next to the grave, and the father recite some words he had made for the woman. This made us all start to break down. I don’t know what I learnt off of this, if only to always be appreciative that you’re a 24 year old adult and can help people whenever you need to. But that look of the child when I gave him the money still sticks with me today as my most vivid memory of childhood.
And since I’ve written in fuckin’ paragraphs, I’m putting my question in bold.
What is the hardest type of film for you to watch?June 9, 2017 at 8:17 am #1202115533
IDK that answer changes … I think sometimes it hard to watch a lot of different kinds of movies.. at time i cant watch foreign language because i know i dont have the attention to read… other times i dont like artsy or movies that are primarily visual because i may be sleepy and wont stay engaged… i love all kinds of movies, but i know i have to be in the correct space to enjoy some movies … example The Tree of Life is an amazing movie , but not one i would watch at night after working a double. I would watch something with some comedy or action.
Idk i didn’t answer the question

Super-artsy, nebulous, abstruse films. I’m all for thinking hard about a film but I shouldn’t need 800 pages of pataphysical essays to “get” your boring project. Plus I think they’re stupid and they make me groan. I also can’t get into ultraviolence (gore just for the sake of gore) or romance films that cross the border from harmless fantasy and wish fulfillment into garbage that seems to be written by people who have never met or spoken to a real-life man. The last one is the worst because that’s what my gal pals will all want to see at sleepovers or going out or whatever and I’m thinking “No please… No…….”

I think I like every type of film there is. BUT I have trouble with older films from before and around the 40s/50s. Aside from black and white (which I truly don’t mind but I don’t LOVE nowadays), the way they speak always bothered me. That fake transatlantic voice most actors would use paired with the phrases they’d say just kills me. And while I understand the music and effects for these movies were the best they could probably do at the time, they’re just so lame and outdated and unintentionally funny now that I’d rather just not even see them. But mainly, it’s the way they talk. This is why I’ve seen hardly any classic films. Terrible, I know, but.

Horror movies. Can’t fucking stand them, with very few exceptions.
“The Mummy”: See it, burn it, or ignore it? Why?June 9, 2017 at 10:01 am #1202115591
See it, least u know Tom Cruise is doing his own stunts and u won’t get cheap/unbelievable cut frames every second to give u a headache on the action scenes
The whole Kathy Griffin messy photo scandal of Donald Trump. Do you think it was blown out of proportion or she deserved all the dragging/hate? Why?Marcus Snowden (The Artist Formerly Known as msnowden1)ParticipantJune 9, 2017 at 10:14 am #1202115604
I love Kathy Griffin, but she definitely deserved the bashing she got for that photo. It was flat-out offensive, and she should’ve known better than to do such a thing. This is coming from a person who hates Trump and wants him gone as soon as possible. I don’t wish for his death, though.June 9, 2017 at 10:15 am #1202115605
yea it was blown out of proportion, its was a joke ( a poor one ) but a joke… everyone needs to get over themselves imo
what your favorite tom cruise movies ?
