    They also released a sea shanty version of Rockstar and it's pretty dumb fun. If Nickelback wants to do more experimental stuff, I'd give it a shot.

    About a month ago, I (29M) tested positive for a UTI that I took meds for and peed clean for, but I still had pain and excessive urination symptoms for, and urgent care said to contact my doctor. Doctor had an appointment 3 weeks out last Wednesday, and I low simmer panicked for that for him to shrug his shoulders and refer me to a urologist. That previous week, I lost my job, and I started having concurrent abdominal pain, Bowel fun, sweats, shivers and fatigue, but no fever that seemed to be linked on eating foods, and I'm split between I picked up a stomach bug, anxiety from the UTI and Job loss is driving this, or if I just now random IBS, coupled with what might be some random Interstitial Cystitis as diagnosed by doctor Google, and now this is my new normal and have to sort out problem foods and never enjoy them again and I'll be in pain forever anyway. I know that I'm catastrophizing and even my worst case scenario means I can manage, but I'm dealing with pain and not rational, and it just so happens that these conditions are vague and inconclusive to test enough that my imagination runs wild. And the last time I went to the emergency room for what I thought was an appendix issue, it turns out my diagnosis was a $1200 bill and some constipation.

    If I have to do a question, it's some variant of "am I going to be okay," because nobody really knows the answer to that question (Edit: except me), and I don't want to acknowledge my hypochondriac nature.

    My brother was into this channel and was so disappointed when they stopped making Map Men. I'm going to have to tell him they're back if he doesn't already know.

    I try to keep out of reviews of reviews and keep to the Beginner's Guide ideal of the artist is not the art and the critic is at risk of violating that, but if you wanted to suppose that Doug Walker reviewed a movie, didn't get it, and brought his baggage into his recreation, it wouldn't be outside the realm of possibility. He had a shtick and it worked well for him, but anything that had something to say that he couldn't intuitively get got the South Park treatment more often than not.

    The idea that Doug appropriated Pink's pep rally to air his own grievances about cancel culture is probably something you could have gone more in depth with if you really wanted to dig through the Change the Channel history, or really explore the conceit of "cancelling (my/people's) speech is just as bad as the Nazis." I understand if that's not something you would want to invite into your home and the Alt Right Playbook does a pretty good job of covering that area.

    My Contract to Hire was cancelled, citing quality and speed issues with warehouse activities. Wasn't really hired for warehouse activities so much as technical assistance, so I'm somewhere between righteous indignation and self pity. I think the stress was causing me some health issues in that I had a UTI about a month ago, and had some aftershock for a good week or two afterward, so much so that I scheduled a visit to my GP. (Who I have an appointment with this week, hah hah, healthcare during a pandemic.) I'd almost be okay with it if they told me it to my face instead of nicing me all week, but my recruiter called me and said he wants to help me find another job on Monday, so clearly there is no love lost from the employer. Eff them, I'll hit self pity again later.

    If you wanted a movie where you see a Kong fighting a Godzilla, this is definitely that movie. Human plot is mostly taking up space per the usual, the trio of Madison, Bernie and Josh in particular just kinda letting the movie happen around them, and a whole lot of names and plots are being thrown around that I wasn't familiar with, but I liked the part where the big lizard punched the monkey, and that's what I came to see.

    IMO, it looks a little busy, but at the same time you're getting a space jam movie with ALL the properties, so it's going to be a little busy.

    Some combination of "new boss, new rules" and that Disney/Fox and Sprint/T-Mobile had to go through similar songs and dances. It will likely go through since all the other streaming players have their own animated properties, and contrary to popular belief, anime isn't legally distinct enough to animation to warrant monopoly woes.

    Pour out one of whatever kind of booze you can find at the dime store for Diamond, because the big two are out and other companies are likely to follow.
