    Regarding why all these allegations are suddenly surfacing now, John Nolte at Breitbart has an interesting theory:

    Source: Breitbart

    The answer is quite simple: Harvey Weinstein’s time has passed. The 65 year-old is reportedly in serious financial trouble, has not had a hit in nearly five years, and has not won anyone an Oscar in that same amount of time.

    Harvey Weinstein is no longer useful to anyone, so scores are being settled. If he was still useful, his predations would be allowed to continue unchallenged.

    Moreover, outlets like Deadline, Variety and The Hollywood Reporter will not make any advertising money from Weinstein. Oscar season is Black Friday to these outlets. Weinstein no longer fills these coffers.

    This is in response to why the media is covering the Weinstein scandal but is ignoring around a dozen allegations of groping that have been recently leveled at Ben Affleck who has been dubbed "Buttman" by some. Nolte's take-away: Ben Affleck is still useful. "The same mentality that allowed Harvey Weinstein to get away with what he did for three decades, is still alive, kicking and protecting Buttman."

    There's something you should know about police officers. They know what people are capable of in ways that most thankfully do not. They have seen first hand the cigarette burns on an infant's back or the black eyes and the sideways jaw on an 80 year old rape victim, and they assume the worst. And they take that on so that good people can go on about their lives and think generously about their fellow man. They provide that luxury. Blue Bloods...

    Adrift describing a film: "The esoteric nature of the imagery was both compelling and unsettling in the way it layered the undesirable aspects of human nature with the raw and idealized beauty of self-actualization."

    Me describing the same film: "I thought the 'splosions were cool."

    Well, I've become a fan of sumo wrestling, so wouldn't that make me the biggest Tweb nerd?

    I haven't really touched a mainstream comic in nearly 20 years. They were getting bad in my day, and they've only gotten worse since. It's just a bunch of PC garbage anymore. The indies are still putting out some super entertaining stuff though, but I just don't have time to read them as often as I like. I'm trying to get my nieces into comics. We'll see if it takes.

    This would actually make for a hilarious movie review blog. Maybe call it Two Men and a Movie? I do my own film reviews, but I only post them to my facebook account. I ain't got nothin on the boys over at places like /r/Truefilm though. Every other word is leitmotif this, Mise-en-scène that. I can barely keep up.

    I went through a lot of new and old stuff when I had a Marvel Unlimited subscription. Some of the best stuff was through the late 70's to the 90's. Although I enjoyed some of the new stuff too, like The Uncanny Avengers, and The Superior Spider-Man. I know you expressed your distaste for the latter, but I found it an interesting read. Reading through some of Astonishing Tales, and other really old comics definitely showed that there have always been some really bad, and some really good ones. Seeing Captain America disguised as a grandma, and Bucky in a "Lil' Lord Fauntleroy" type outfit in the original series was definitely unusual to see.

    I'll agree that there is a lot of garbage out there right now, but fortunately not all of it has succumb to trying to appease the current trendy group, or at least not in any blatant way that I noticed.

    You probably have a lot of the best stuff, but if you ever get more time you might check it out. Only problems I ran into was series I was reading not having enough material, or jumps in issues/across series. I don't want to have to read Fantastic 4 #5,000 to find out what happened in Spider-Man #4,999*.

    I understood when they did stuff for big crossover events like Avenger's vs Defenders, but not some of the two bit villains in Spider-Man.

    *Not the actual numbers, but after reading through so many jumps and crossovers it started to feel that way.
