    Aww, I can still remember the first time I saw that anthropomorphic dog walking around the city with a boombox.

    I liked the episode, even if it probably won't go down as a favorite.

    I kinda knew the reveals just from reading people's comics knowledge, here and elsewhere, but I still dug a lot of the character work from Olsen and Bettany.

    Not to sidestep the Jo Jo post and the heartfelt terror within, but here's more comic book nonsense:

    I forgot I watched Birds of Prey. I thought it was on par with Shazam...entertaining but not emotionally gripping (even in a popcorn flick sense), which is fine. That's what I get out of the Ant-Man movies (which I liked more, but still).

    In terms of whether DCEU should be like MCU, I don't really mind either way. If the four choices are 1) Like MCU & Good, 2) Like MCU & Bad, 3) Unlike MCU & Good, 4) Unlike MCU & Bad, I'd be equally fine with either 1 or 3. I thought Shazam was on the lower end of category 1, and I was also contrasting it with the bulk of the DCEU, which fall into category 4.

    It's interesting, but a lot of the reason that seems to be happening (at least in my observation) in the instrumental is because there's way more melody (or at least micro-melodies) in the vocals. A lot of these dudes are kinda making single-line phrasings into hooks and then riding that hook (or 2-3) throughout the song. In these shorter 2-minute songs they also seem to eschew choruses a lot more often, but for almost like the opposite reason of lyrics-focused underground of previous decades. It's all hook, instead of no hook, even if it's all in the vocals and not the instrumental.

    Scientists Achieve Real-Time Communication With Lucid Dreamers In Breakthrough
    International scientists have unlocked a new and exciting avenue to explore the world of dreams.

    Quote

    Roughly 18 percent of the trials resulted in this level of clear and accurate communication from the dreamer; 17 percent produced indecipherable answers, 3 percent ended with incorrect responses, and 60 percent did not provoke any response at all.

    It's amazing to sit in the lab and ask a bunch of questions, and then somebody might actually answer one, Konkoly said. It's such an immediately rewarding type of experiment to do. You don't have to wait to analyze your data or anything like that. You can see it right there while they're still sleeping.

    Whats more, many participants were able to recall the interactions with the researchers after they woke up, with individuals reporting that the prompts sounded like a voiceover narrator or a radio speaker that was clearly coming from outside of their dream.

    Great to hear you are ok! We are all fine, luckily we are mostly shut-ins anyway so the boy just spends more time doing Lego, Xbox and Ethan gamer TV on youtube. I've been getting through Netflix series and reading, same with the Mrs. Thanks for asking and if I don't see you round here for a while that would suck but I understand if you want time away. Take care mate.

    Yeah, normally I look at a youtube "commentary" clip run time at 45 mins and go "Nope", but I couldn't stop watching and - quite frankly - geeking out.

    I think the main reason I don't get in trouble so often any more is because hardly anyone ever disagrees with me about anything on the DB. This is a very liberal forum these days. It always has been, but it hasn't always been so...absolute. I mean gawd, Bubba voted for Bernie Sanders. He and Bent used to be in the conservative wing of the DB. We also had Gem, who was very religious but ...
