    So some of those HEMA guys actually put together a cinematic portrayal of their stuff that actually looks pretty damn cool while still being more "realistic".

    So while it's not exactly true to life, it is more accurate than your average movie and honestly looks really fucking dope. I'd love to see a competent film maker incorporate this style of sword fighting into a large budget movie.

    I was at work one day, and got a Snapchat from my fiance. It was a picture of a adorable black and white dog. A few minutes later I get another Snapchat from her, and it was a picture of her and the dog in her car. I get home from work and there is the dog on my couch. His name is Mako, and he is the best boy ever. He's a border collie mixed with something else, we're not certain. He was found wandering the Wilds of rural Utah with no tags and no microchip. He's estimated to be about two years old, and he's clearly had training before cuz he's amazingly well behaved and knew sit, stay, come Etc. While he can sometimes be a pain in the ass because he is very smart, he's incredibly friendly to people and definitely interested in other dogs, though he doesn't want to play with them so much as herd them.

    This is my first dog on my own, and I have never been more enamored with a dog. I love my Mako.

    The American justice system since its Inception has been more about punishment than anything else. This stems from our cultures Puritan roots. Therefore removing the loading ability of convicted felons is a punishment nothing more nothing less. Though I am sure it has the since been co-opted into some political tool.

    According to the director, the overall theme is not about race this time.

    "I think the main idea that went into writing this film is that we’re our own worst enemy, and that idea created this monster, The Tethered. I wanted to forge this new mythology that explored our duality and the duality of the characters. To the actors, I knew this was the ultimate fun because who doesn’t want to play two roles in a movie; when you’re tired in one, you get to jump into the other. But I think what was a fun challenge for actors, was finding the connections between the characters and their counterparts.".

    I think this movie is more about the inner darkness we all have given manifest. But I'm sure there's more in store, Peele has so far show great skill in crafting complex social-horror narratives.

    Further reading makes me think it might be about immigration: "I definitely wanted to do a movie that started with this sense of invasion, this sense of the fear of other, the fear of the stranger from outside, which I think is a common fear in society these days, and then sort of force the characters to realize the invaders have their faces."

    From my understanding of it it's more that they don't want to risk missing the drone, because whatever goes up must come down....at a velocity that can severely injure or possibly kill people....

    The country-side the is gorgeous, and there's a couple nice towns. But it's almost entirely poor coal miners so everything is very old and very run down. Like most states nowadays, WV has a nasty drug abuse problem so all the sketchy shit that comes with that is present.

    Note that i've never lived there. I just drove through the state a couple dozen times driving between ohio and north carolina. And i'd always time my refuels so that i didn't have to stop in WV. This is a personal anecdote, but the few times I was forced to stop I felt like everything man made was just sorta rotting away.

    Oh and one time I was refueling and the lady refueling next to me was smoking a lit cigarette. So there's that.

    As much as I wanna argue that anime isn't 85% shitty sex "humor" and naughty tentacles and over buxom teenagers.....it totally is. Like any media there are the gems that shine through all this crap but for the most part it's all low brow crap that dances to the same beat.

    It's like how in western cable TV you can find a dozen shows with the same exact tropes, and character-types, and plot lines over and over again. It's the lowest common denominator of entertainment in the region.

    Well in the US "shitting the bed" means really messing up and ruining something, so he could mean the games he plays involve the characters wrecking stuff..... or maybe they literally shit on beds
