Re: Bad News For Rodent's Hometown

Is it too late to get some sort of citizens' group together?

There was a vaudeville theater in my home town, where Yoda's dad and I used to work as teens. It went downhill and ended up as a...

HAMILTON!

Re: HAMILTON!

I subscribed for a month at $7.99. Now I'm taking in a lot of the Disney vault for the rest of the month. :) Totally worth it.

Also, I wouldn't call the show a rap battle of any sort. (There is...

Re: HAMILTON!

Try watching it again with subtitles on. You'll really start to appreciate the word play. That's a lot of intricate writing to get 2.5 hours of lyrics to weave together so well.

And I was really...

The VR Conundrum

Re: The VR Conundrum

I do like Moss, for example, which doesn't give me those issues. But it doesn't help that the headset throws me initially into that "room" with the grid behind it. Then I start out with an unresolved...

It's been nearly a week since the world was graced with the film version of the hit Broadway play HAMILTON through Disney Plus. What do you all think?

I went into this having only heard "Weird Al"...

Re: The VR Conundrum

Let's put it this way: I LOVE VR and could spend way too much time gaming with my headset... but even that opening screen (the living room with the fireplace and the blank grid behind it) makes me a...

Re: Note from Yoda's Wife

Yeah, I ain't super-swearing anything. Yoda got his hereditary propensity for stitches from me, and I just don't need to see a picture of my firstborn's ugly injury. Verbal descriptions have been...

No, it's still free, and I'm downloading it now. Thanks for the heads up! I'm so far behind on my Oculus/VR gaming!

Great, now I'm picturing marrow leaking out of your "bone puncture"!

Re: Note from Yoda's Wife

Six days later, and I haven't heard a peep from Yoda in any format since we were all posting here. Hoping Yoda is okay, although I trust his trusty sidekick, IrishSansRed, to get in touch with me if...

Re: Penny Dreadful : City of Angels (Showtime)

I still have to watch this. The ending of the season before this definitely felt like a proper finale, so I can only imagine they've added new characters and storylines, yes?

I'll see what I think...

Also... a friend of mine from high school met Carl Reiner when he was a guest on the Letterman show in the early 1980s. He gathered the segment on a short YouTube video, and it's probably my favorite...

Re: Carl Reiner, American Comedy Legend, Dead at 98

It's not like he didn't live a long and amazing life, but this still saddens me greatly.

He and Mel Brooks met for dinner (on TV trays) while watching evening game shows like Jeopardy! a few...

Since it's unfair to expect three posts from IrishSansRed in the same calendar year, I'll chime in. Ike is a mix of pit bull and something else quite charming. He's a very emotionally needy, adorable...

Crazy thing is, Yoda lives in a fairly urban area. That wildlife is truly wild.

Part of that page reads as if they might extend it somehow, so I'll keep a lookout. Naturally, I've already bought about 4 of those games elsewhere... some of them recently, too. :D

Re: Possible movies that match Something's gotta give

Also, It's Complicated, with Meryl Streep and Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin has a similar vibe as Something's Gotta Give. Similar ages.
