bump. Thread still relevant.




#3098832 Check out this movie - Coherence

Posted by Bronn on 20 November 2014 - 04:29 PM

Thank me later.

Basically, it is a low budget film about a dinner party gone haywire because of a passing comet that is causing intersections of parallel universes. The first 30 minutes or so are kind of ho-hum, but once the stuff starts happening, you will literally be asking "WTF?!?!?"

It won't be for everyone, but if you like sci-fi and deep thinking type stuff or twilight zone type things, be sure to check it out.

#3094751 Season 5: The Walking Dead

Posted by Bronn on 18 November 2014 - 09:47 AM

I think fans of the comics are liking these type of episodes, whereas the people that liked the show and haven't seen the comics are "bored". 

 

But I always enjoy the sneaking around through city stuff and wish we had more of it.  It felt like a video game.  Carol and Daryl are broken people and were even before these events, they are just trying to get through this crazy world and piece together their sanity, together.  

 

There was also some cool things hinting at past shows, like the statue on the dashboard from Lost, and the brand of cigs Daryl picks up are the same the smoking man in X-Files smoked.  Pretty cool stuff.  

 

Then walking over the skywalks and whatnot had me thinking about the Governor's prequel novel and how they did a ton of that there.

 

I think the point of the episode was to highlight how Daryl and Carol have overcame so much pre-apocalypse and post-apocalypse to be in the spot they are in, and that that is what makes them such good survivors in this world. Their resilience is their biggest asset. That is where the fire symbolism comes in. They are always surrounded by fire, but are never consumed by it.

 

That is why it will be such a tragedy when the writers off one of them by the midseason finale! LOL (just kidding here...I haven't seen anything that indicates that will happen)

I liked the Caryl episode. It does seem they kinda draw some scenes out for "cinematic" feel (IE how many scenes and minutes have we seen with people standing beside a window looking out and thinking about things?) but overall they are doing the best job they have in a long long time.

Another thing I noticed that was also mentioned on Talking Dead that was interesting... There was lots of fire symbolism in this episode. I suppose it is fitting, given that the episode was entitled "Consumed." But there were like 10 instances, at least, of fire.

Yeah, because we haven't been talking about this in the other thread for days.

Do people even look at what's been posted?

Job creators=heroic. Right?

 

HA!

With that logic, I can go out an become an arsonist. More fires=need for more firemen. I'd be a job creator. I'd be a hero.

 

Maybe I'd get free meals a shitty restaurants because of my heroics.




#3085695 Intersteller

Posted by Bronn on 13 November 2014 - 03:35 PM

Haven't seen the movie yet and haven't read the thread because I don't want to be too spoiled, but on the concepts of time travel and some sort of cyclical timeline for reality...

If you believe it is possible to travel into the future... Wouldn't that future be predetermined and already in existence? Would it be predetermined by the events taking place at the exact moment you left from, or would it not matter and the end result be the same? If the future IS predetermined, that would have some pretty big implications.

Me personally, I kinda believe it would be possible to travel back in time but not forward. I believe this because the past has already happened and past events have shaped our present. Another way to think about it is looking up at the night sky. Some of the stars we see aren't even there anymore, so you're looking back in time.

 

If time does somehow fold onto itself, then that would mean that the universe is finite and has a limited space for expansion. Things could exist in parallel universes and the potential could exist for intersecting universes. Time could be cyclical and everything and everyone is just a part of a huge recycling of energy and matter.

 

I enjoy thinking about stuff like this, and it really makes you realize how insignificant we really are.

Panthers management said  Steve Smith had become a distraction to the overall good of the team because his negative behavior, out weighed the positive effect he made,his skills and playing performance did not warrant that type action.

Steve Smith,his  skill set aside, proved over time he could be a pain in the ass, with a personality that curtailed development to a young QB like Cam and young WR's that he resented and had no desire to help. Don't think for a minute the Panthers brain trust just suddendly pulled thoughts out of the air and said Steve Smith and the team need to part ways.. 

 

AHAHAHA HAHA HAHAHAHAHAHA!

So instead, we try to culture the development of our young QB by not giving him much better options at WR, and fielding probably the worst line in the history of football.

But, yeah, Panthers management is my go to source for logic and smart football decisions.

Haven't read the thread yet... but I will go back and do so...

 

I've started this topic in the past and it never ends well. I don't really care, but it isn't my fault someone chooses to sign their lives away to the military, and nobody alive today has fought for my freedom. In fact, one could argue that we're all born into a fallacious state of freedom in the first place, and the very type of society that our country's founders sought freedom from.

 

Also, ask Native Americans how they feel about the people that were slaughtered fighting for their freedom from our ancestral interlopers.

 

We need to stop giving reverence to things that cause harm to others.

so we'd have won more games with him here than not but it's unfair to bring up what the panthers actually did w/l wise when he was on the roster?

 

the airtight logic of smitty fanboys, everyone

Not counting 2001 (rookie year) or 2004 (injury), the Panthers were 91-85 with Smith. But, even narrowing it down to such a non-encompassing number is basically a derpa derp statistic. We had an ENTIRE SEASON with Jimmy Clausen as our leading Passer. We had Jake Delhomme, one of the most overrated QBs and overappreciated good guys ever. We had 97 year old Vinny Testaverde. DeShaun Foster led us in rushing for three consecutive years without crossing the 900 yard mark.

 

We can speculate either direction, but history tells us that Smith was our leading WR 10 out of the 13 years he was here. One of those years he was a rookie that didn't get time at the WR position. Another one he was hurt in the first game. Last year, he was in a Mike Shula led offense that is certainly piling up the points as we speak.

 

He caught over 1000 yards worth of offense seven out of 13 seasons, which is really seven out of 11 not counting his rookie or injury years. This is coming from outstanding perennial Pro Bowl legendary QBs Jake Delhomme and Vinny Testaverde. Sure, Cam lit it up with him 2/4 years, too, but Smitty was at the twilight of his career for the last two (and with Mike Shula calling the plays.)

 

We had exactly 4 thousand yard rushers during Smitty's 13 year career. Two of them in the same year (Williams and Stewart in 2009), Wiliams in 2008, and Davis in 2003. That's a lot of help from the run game. Especially when you consider that most of the Fox-era offense forced the run more often than not.

 

He also had to spend an entire season with Jimmy Clausen throwing him the ball.

 

Aside from the years he had Moose, he also never had a solid WR opposite from him.

 

So do I think he WAS our offense for most of his time here? Absolutely. Do I think he MADE Jake Delhomme? Absolutely. Do I think he might not have been the greatest teammate sometimes? Maybe not. But I never saw him stop running hard or playing hard or trying to get any junk that was thrown to him or making something out of nothing by making people miss.

Therefore, I speculate that we would have absolutely been worse without him during those 13 years. Write it off as "fanboy" logic all you want. You're the one letting an emotional situation make you disregard logic. That just makes you a hater.

What is the panthers' record with smith and his chipped shoulder wearing our jersey?

 

A lot damn better than it would have been without him.

What kind of question is this? You're blaming Smith for the Panthers not winning more games?

Do you expect him to go out there and get Ws all by himself? He sure as hell did his part in the Ws we did get when he was here.




#3084433 Ways to enjoy this season...

Start an entire team of Panthers on your fantasy football team, and see if you can score more than 50 points.

TBQH I am glad he continues to say things like this and I hope he continues to do so.

If only our organization carried the chip he has on his shoulder, or worked as hard as he did to get into position to be a HOFer and undoubtedly one of the greatest WRs of all time, then we wouldn't be perennial losers who tote the flag of mediocrity or worse every year.

The bitterness towards Smitty and other former Panthers on the Huddle is a perfect example of how the FO thinks they can continue to do the same old things and keep rolling your cash in. Sure, everyone is all "OMG WE SUCK FIRE EVERYONE" right now, and we'll do little to nothing this coming offseason, and folks will be up in here like "SUPER BOWL!"

Get real.
