I hate it when these videos ignore pioneering cyclists for the sake of producing a list based upon "recent years". One of the most seriously lacking areas of knowledge for today's fans, is a sense of cycling's history. GCN should really take the initiative to address that. If someone calls themself a fan, then he/she should know who the important figures in cycling history are.
I enjoy both John and Ben, but they don't make a good review duo. Ben needs Alonso as a debating partner. John doesn't really fit that role.
OK, so where's the Homeland review?
A few weeks ago, people were giving WTF a hard time for taking so long to post a Breaking Bad review. Just thought I'd try to stir things up :)
Stark was correct, however. It was indeed Ser Gregor Clegane who was doing these things. This is not a court of law, it is a medieval fantasy. In the middle ages, summary justice was common, and highly influenced by political considerations. Stark had the truth on his side in this matter. Whether it was a smart move, is entirely different question. Ned didn't remain hand long enough to see this through. Lord Beric, however, remained faithful to his duties.
The GOP committee chairman not chastising his GOP colleague for being out of order. Pallone shouted over him. It wasn't elegant, but it's necessary when your committee is mobbed and headed by thugs.
Simple intellectual curiosity on the part of the orca. He's looking at that dog and probably thinking "what the hell are you!?"
"He's about the size of a seal, and barks like one too, but he behaves differently and seems to hang out with the smart, furless, apes on the boat. Is it some kind of superior being? Is he the leader of the apes? Perhaps I should investigate..."
They've only killed humans when humans have them in captivity. There has never been a documented case of an orca killing a human in nature, and they has been absolutely no documented cases of orcas feeding on humans.
Orcas are not indiscriminate killers. They are, however, intellectually curious. What we're seeing in this video, is an orca trying to figure out just what kind of creature that dog is. The dog isn't on the menu, nor the diver.
The most well known version of this piece was a recording by Josh's dad Charlie w/ Pat Metheny. That version is purely instrumental. The marriage of Josh Haden's chord progressions and melody to Pat Metheny's improvisational skills produces a very different piece.
Charlie plays the head, then Pat goes off in his own direction. It becomes more "ambient americana" than Jazz or Devotional. Jazz places the music in the position of primacy - above any lyrical content.
It's a little early to do films like this with any historical context. I'd say the same thing about "The Social Network". We're looking back on history from a matter of days! It just doesn't work (in terms of drama).

This was an interesting episode right up to Brody giving into the heroin. At that point, Homeland literally jumped over the shark and into cliche territory.
There is no physical evidence, eyewitness testimony or statistically outstanding performances to support your claim. Your opinion is not the product of skepticism, but pure cynicism. It's wise to question "received wisdom", but to draw conclusions based upon emotion is a very great error.
Bob Newhart is so much more than an actor. He was a director, producer, writer and show creator in addition to being an actor. It's not only actors who stand on the shoulders of this giant, but everyone in situation comedy.
Glad to see that Professor Proton / Dick Loudon / Dr. Bob Hartley will be rejoining Big Bang this season for a few episodes. For Big Bang to be graced by his presence, surely confirms that they are one of the all time great shows.
Here are some facts that you are missing in your Gilmour hating rants:
- David Gilmour did not want to get together with Waters for Live 8. He had been approached by Geldof, and Waters had left him a message, but he refused to talk to Waters.
- Polly Samson was the person who convinced Gilmour to get back in touch with Waters. They _both_ credit her for their reconciliation.
Whatever bent the majority of pundits (they're no longer journalists - that died a long time ago) might have, they all want to further their careers and are willing to step on anyone or anything to do it. They are just a few hairs short of being a Wall St. banker in their overt sociopathy.
Dem. admins should be smart enough to know this. Did Clinton's "Health Security" plan's demise not prove that the press are not interested in facts? Obama needed to run the healthcare matter(cont)
ROTFLMAO - Ben questioning Alonso about Vaginal Davis, then tapping on his iPad, like he's looking her up....
J. Michael Straczynski wrote every episode of Seasons 4 & 5 of Babylon 5. Sci-fi...sure. Syndicated...sure. Groundbreaking - definitely.
It can be done by a truly talented writer. Sorkin just isn't on that level.
He was probably using her as a taster, but he also knew (since he first saw her) that she was clever. Tywin likes to surround himself with as many smart people as he can, probably because most of the people who serve him are idiots. His problem is that he is a very wary man. He likes smart people, but he also fears them. Despite his comments about Tyrion, he knows his son to be smarter than him and that is why he despises him so.
Absolutely. A possibility, however, is not a certainty nor even a probability. In the interim, those of us who defend science, reason and logic are verbally assaulted with ad hominem attacks by these illogical cynics. I will no longer address any one of them personally. They have lost any respect that a thinking person could offer.
I would encourage posters of reason and logic to give a firm thumbs down to their comments - as they will with mine.
In polite society, sir, we do not engage in personal name calling when we have a difference of opinion with another person. We also learn how to read and write correctly before attempting to engage in an informed discussion. You have neither adhered to commonly accepted rules of decorum, nor lived up to basic intellectual standards for engaging me in a discussion. I, and other discerning musicians have no time for you or your unlettered responses.
