    Tour dates!

    Awww, please do! I also got tickets for Bristol! I don't know the logistics for Bristol yet but I will try to make it. Do we have any other venues listed for London yet. I'll be staying the week. Flying out on Friday.
  4. An old friend and former colleague texted me the other day trying to recruit me for his current company. He was like 'move back here and work for us'. And I was like 'in Trump land?'. That was the end of that conversation.
  5. Yes, it's a cgi cameo. Basically a nod to the original... Saw Guardians of the Galaxy vol.2, twice already. It was just a lot of fun!!! Getting ready for Eurovision this week...
  6. Westworld is a remake of an old Michael Crichton movie. It's a classic. I hear the new show has a cameo with Yul Brynner!?!
  7. currently binging on Iron Fist. no matter how silly it gets I'm still gonna like it cause ... martial arts!!!!!
  8. Just saw Kimi no Na wa (Your Name.) So excellent!!!!!!
  9. We need some beauty in our lives these days.
  10. You know what's even more infuriating than the fact he was elected? Media proclaiming that his approval ratings are the lowest ever! Down to 40% !!!! 40%????? Are you serious? In my country 40% is basically a majority! Fucking 40%? That is a country of bigoted, ignorant, navel gazing, asshats!!!! Isis is having a field party! Putin is having a field party! and Bannon & co are praying for another 9/11 to happen so they can get solid justification for every atrocity they have planned. Us, here in this forum and our ghetto on twitter is just preaching to the choir. This is the minority. The US actually elected this nutcase and we're all gonna suffer for it. Because the US is a country of fascists. You need to own this at some point....
  11. The state of the world is going to hell in a handbasket.... Honestly, right now the US is officially under a fascist state of command. I feel like I've been held hostage to my twitter feed for over a week now.... One atrocity after the other! and this is barely week one! First I was like how are we gonna handle four years of this... now I don't even see us lasting a single month! this is insane!!!!! The Muslim ban on Holocaust day? that is not random. that was premeditated. that is the new order. passport holders are being asked for their social media handles. this is where we are. Even if I wanted to visit the US at this point, I can't. I am allergic to fascism.
  12. Yowa Peda ftw!!!! Been watching it too! I loved how they picked up right were s02 ended and we got to see the reactions from his mom! that was cute! and the new rival looks good too. Arrival back in December. I haven't been so excited about a sci-fi flick in a very long time!!!! This was awesomeness all around! La La Land. Good old Hollywood musical nostalgia. It's pretty good and the music is excellent. ..... but not so extraordinary to sweep all the awards man. come on..... but it's gonna win all the awards this year. Live by Night...... I hate Ben Affleck. the movie was good but nothing special about it plus I hate Ben Affleck. You can wait to see it on tv instead of the theater if at all. The Great Wall. D00d! this would have been so much better without the white people in it..... Assassin`s Creed. that was disappointing to say the least! Fassbenter cannot do the action hero physical shit to save his life. I could tell when I saw a stunt man do his fighting and when I saw him instead. He can't kick for shit! XXX Return of Xander Cage. I remember the first one being a Vin Diesel self gratification mashup bullshit and this was no different.... But! it has Donnie Yen and Tony Jaa in it!!!!!! one of them alone would be worth it, the both of them was like a fan girl heaven!!!!! Denial last week. That would have been a pretty mediocre story about a trial in the 90's if it came out a couple of years ago. Right now, with the current political climate it could not be more relevant and on point. I could not recommend it enough. Split by Shyamalan. this is actually the good old Shyamalan kind of flick. and McAvoy nails it! plus the girl isn't bad either. on tv been watching Trollhunters by GDT! Excellent show! finished the whole thing! and Anton will be terribly missed..... plus Taboo. This is excellent beyond expectation! Must see! saw the first 3 eps and can't wait for the next one! Tom Hardy ftw! i wanna see Hidden Figures so bad!!!! but I gotta wait till March for release here..... booooooo
  13. Avgolemono Soup (my version) Take your typical boring soup; veggie or chicken rice or veggie chicken rice of whatever is in the fridge and make it exceptional! So you have your soup cooking. You take a couple of eggs (room temperature if you can) and separate the eggwhites. Keep the yolk. or you can be adventurous and do one full egg but it's more difficult to keep the eggwhite from cooking when you mix it in the soup. So for a better chance of success.... you just keep the yolk. you mix the eggs pretty well. Then get the juice from one big lemon. I got 3 lemons cause I love the lemony goodness in this the most! mix the lemon juice with the eggs. stir it slow but make sure it's all well mixed. no egg pieces floating around. and here comes the big secret. take broth from the cooking soup and start mixing it with the egg/lemon mix. little by little warm it up with broth from the soup. mix it in with the egg/lemon mix, slowly but well. Repeat as much as you need. once the soup is done cooking take it off the stove. Let it sit for a few minutes so it's not boiling any more. and then while the egg/lemon mix is still warm and the soup is cooling mix it up while stirring the soup so the egg doesn't cook. Bon appetit! I always add fresh ground pepper on top.
  14. I've seen it twice already! Once with friend who is not a fan. He liked it! and then with brother who is a fan and he liked it too! I just plain loved it! even better than FA actually! No innocence in this one, no happy ending apart from a glimmer of hope merely passed on to the next torchbearer...
  15. queue Darth Vader and the room breaks in cheers!!!! I think this is one of the few kind of films where the main anti-hero gets this sort of reception. Dude... I cheered! to hear James Earl Jones voice in this context again.... wow.
  16. K-2SO was my favorite character in it..... and no wonder as it's Alan Tudyk behind the android.
  17. this is a spoiler thread and the movie was so fucking awesome!!!!!!
  18. yeah, it is actually Yoshitomo Nara himself.
  19. That loo is horrific!!! Once in a while you can find one of those here too.... bliagh!!!
  20. I'm not so optimistic... Read this article by the Guardian (via Colin on twitter) so.... kinda bummed actually. I hope this gets proven to be wrong.
