Take care of yourself.

RE: Vanguard...

"This looks like The Expendables but they could only get Jackie so filled the other spots with younguns."

It's clearly an attempt at a bit of a franchise, the amount of times the Vanguard logo is displayed.

The CGI is rather bad at times but who can't love a hoverboard riding SWAT officer, cars doing perfect 90 degree turns or a giant friendly lion who only attacks the bad guys?

Even American sailors on the aircraft carrier have Russian accents.

Not to mention loads of Chinese tech that actually works.

Utter bilge, but it's still quite good fun though...

Vanguard...

Anyone seen this?



Lot of fun, albeit with some blatant CGI...

Yep, seen that and lots of videos where he clearly bores his female co-stars during Witcher TV interviews by talking about how he loves the games...

RE: [VIDEO] Star Wars spin-off series The Mandalorian

Is this made up or does it just prove that for the new generations that there is no nuance?

**EDIT** further investigation seems to find that it's a couple of numpties on social media who can't handle the fact they dated and writers desperate for this cancel thing to move to the next level so they have something to write about...

"It's essentially the same video as before, but as it's nowthis, there's extra images and music."

That raises red flags in and of itself.

If it's truly different to those that Biden presided over as VP, then they should do a 'day in the life' video.

As you're opposed to them yourself, I can't see that you'd disagree with this.

"One of the shills from Fox tried that with Jen the other day. But the amazing Ms Psaki was having none of it.

(tl;dr they've re-opened existing facilities but stripped them out so that they're covid-compliant. Another big difference is the kids aren't turned back as soon as they're processed)"

Any new footage of those sites to back that up?

"Those 'Disney want to fire Kathleen Kennedy' Youtube videos have been popping up on my YT feed since she was hired"

Quite agree, we went through similar with Brie Larson.

It's hard to tell these days what's actually true and is just pure conjecture so I treat it all as conjecture until I see something confirming it.

Still stand by my stance that this is far more entertaining than the last trilogy though...

We don't have long to wait, the Disney annual shareholder meeting is on 09/03/2021 so if all the talk about sub cancellation is true, it should come out there...

"I also wonder what her peers on set think about it all? Are they quiet as they're worried about their jobs, or they tried to help her, or are they glad? I know Mando tried to help her at least once.

I hadn't heard of Shapiro really before he jumped in to her defence, I guess he thinks she's ideal poster girl for his film he's selling?"

The first thing is covered in the video to a degree without naming names.  Up to the viewer to make up their own mind about how true it is.

Shapiro's not selling a film of his, he is allowing her to create her own - big difference...

Not expecting this to change anyone's mind, especially as the interviewer is Ben Shapiro, but I thought it was interesting and pretty uncontroversial in that she doesn't take the opportunity to dish the dirt on anyone...

"There is some evidence that they make a significant difference, but it's hard to know exactly how they are making that difference (theories vary). I don't think we even know how much exposure to the virus you need to catch it, but they have just started experiments with live subjects on discovering this."

It doesn't bother me either way, to be honest.

I've seen people banging on about how surgeons and medical staff wear them for hours at a time, but medical grade PPE is single use only and medical guidelines I've seen suggest that a surgeon should change masks every two hours during long surgical procedures.

It's not like I'm anti-mask, happy enough to wear one but just not sure how effective they really are...

"As for the excuse they are useless"

I'm personally not convinced by the efficacy of face masks, but I still wear one as they help to provide confidence for those who are worried about the virus and the effect it may have on them.

Not too much of a sacrifice for me for the odd half hour or so I pop out occasionally...

Heard bad things about this book, so will be avoiding - and not a big 90's pop culture fan anyway (musically I feel it was a barren desert)...

Currently working my way through (R)Evolution, Gary Numan's autobiography where he's far more open and spilling personal details than he was in Praying To The Aliens.
