Re: http://nurein.songlander.com error

Dang it, I purposefully didn't throw you under the bus. :) Anyway, I *am* (slowly) replacing the site. You can check out my test page by replacing 'titles' in the path.

Perfect storm of things breaking things, I guess, because I haven't touched the site in months. It's resolved now.

Re: Track sequencing

I almost always listen to albums as a whole if I bought the album. Depends a little on the artist and quality of the album.

Re: Hidden Figures

This movie didn't know what it wanted to be. It threw in some Civil Rights callouts as non-sequiters. It threw in some romance sequences, again, for no reason. The threads didn't tie together. The characters were compelling in theory, but thinned out so that Hollywood could meet their yearly quota i...

Re: Assassin's Creed

I agree- it suffered from poor pacing. It's a pretty complicated story to fit into a movie. If they had a contract for 3 movies off the bat they would have paced it a lot better. The unfortunate situation is now they've gotten past the lore bootstrap and could make a great action-packed sequel, but ...

Re: La La Land

The only thing I'm trolling about is California. Some people have convinced me California is okay sometimes. :) If the measure of "good art" is how many feelings it evokes, then La La Land wins because it makes me want to burn everything to the ground. Every time I felt slightly invested i...

Re: Assassin's Creed

Maybe slight exaggeration, but this was coming off the heels of seeing "Arrival", "Hidden Figures", and "La La Land". I've never been so underwhelmed in my life.

Re: La La Land

Well Sam, I'm glad you brought up my favorite topic. :) :) :) :) "La La Land" is a compelling thesis on why California should drift off into the sea. I seriously can't remember the last time I was that angry and disappointed from a movie. You go in expecting a "musical" and get a...

Re: Assassin's Creed

It was the best movie of 2016, which isn't saying much. As a huge fan of the game, I was happy it stayed true to the material and generally pleased they didn't completely screw it up, but it seemed to lose steam at the ending. I think the franchise as a whole has a lot of potential if they'd get a g...

Re: What's up in Portland? Enquiring minds want to know

We have a whole generation of folks who grew up learning about the hardships of the Great Depression, struggle for Civil Rights, two World Wars... They are looking for their Own Purpose. They want a Fight.

And that Fight is against the Tortilla Nazis.

I feel like I explained this but I'll try again. It's fascinating. Why can't you non-Americans learn what freedom is???? /sarc I think this is the thing that puzzles people outside the USA, and possibly the point Noma is getting at - did people really need it explained to them that the man is a bit ...

Re: Paris Accord

Now one more thing that really astounds me is that apparently, Ivanka tried to persuade Trump not to withdraw from the Paris agreement. Yet Bannon won. He must have some kind of strong evil power. I'd be careful believing any rumors about this White House until people start putting their names on l...

Re: Paris Accord

I think you're underestimating the creeping scope of executive power over the last 20 odd years, and the amount of damage he can do short and long term. For example, while the Muslim Ban may get struck down by the courts, he can enact stuff like that which has immediate severe consequences for peop...

Dammit Sam, this is hard to do on a phone. I'm afraid we'll just be talking past each other but I'll try to elaborate. I think that's more folks being juvenile reactionaries, who decided to just say "fuck you" to people who voice a different opinion. What I saw a lot of was "don't vot...

Re: Paris Accord

I think the disconnect you may have is that he's not the "prime minister". The executive branch in the US does not need its figurehead to be a smartypants beancounter - it needs a wise delegator. Legislative agenda, while soft influenced by the presidency, comes from the congress. It is de...

I'm just a centrist giving football analysis here. This is not a value judgement or personal opinion. How did this wacko get elected? I mean, sure, the Russians might have helped. Sure, he didn't gain the majority of votes. Sure, his followers were brainwashed. First, this quote was a high motivator...
