There's a quote from Pixie where she talks about being dark and gothy

Anyone remember the issue?

Too bad Vox Lux isn't about Natalie Portman literally transmuting vox into lux like Dazzler.

I watched the Ryan Reynolds Green Lantern last night. It deserves every bit of scorn that has been heaped on it. I can’t fathom why any actor with any integrity, upon reading the script, would agree to be in that movie. I guess if you just need the work...

I really dislike Reynolds. His Deadpool is fine, but he’s buried under prosthetics and/or a mask. His face acting is atrocious.

How do we want to discuss the Esleworlds crossover? Thoughts after each part in their respective series (which are out of their usual order) or one combined thread?

So question for any audiophiles on here: I inherited all my dad's vinyl when he passed away last year and just now got around to buying a record player from U-Turn turntables as recommended to me by a friend. Do you know if I need speakers? Or what kind of adapter can I get to pair it with blue tooth? I'd prefer not to get any at all, but I don't know if the preamp is a speaker or not. Help me! I know nothing of these things!

Um... it would really depend on whether or not it already has speakers built into the record player or not... you may have to get a set of speakers to go with it if it has audio jacks built into it. You can also get devices that will record the vinyl and put it into MP3 format if storage is an issue :)

Eugh, and massively compress the sound quality?

"I intend to say to the right honourable lady that, if she looks carefully, she'll see I'm not capable of a Parliamentary ejaculation"...

Words actually spoken by the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom in the House of Commons after being accused of "premature Parliamentary ejaculation". You just can't make this stuff up.

Ugh. She’s just a joke at this point. One that doesn’t even have a good punchline but has already gone on for far too long.

I don't even understand what she hopes to accomplish here. If Parliament will not accept her deal they won't change their minds overnight without a massive change and it's way too late for the EU to change anything crucial like the backstop. She's delaying the inevitable and in doing so creating instability and further damaging the UK's reputation worldwide.

Unless May goes, it's a hard Brexit. The deal as it stands won't get through Parliament, the EU have no appetite for further negotiations with a leader who can't lead (or one who can't implement heir diktat in any case) and she is far too bloody stubborn to revoke or to put it to a second referendum.

I'm really not sure how any change in leadership will help either at this stage. Corbyn wants a custom union with free trade opportunities, which is never going to happen, the Brexiteers want Canada ++ that'll never get past the Remainers in Parliament, and the Remainers (SNP, LD, Greens and the rag tag elements of the Tories and Labour) won't have a leadership candidate in the game.

Any talk of a People's Vote is neutered by the fact there's only really three options, all of which Parliament either has, or inevitably will, vote against regardless, and takes at best guess 22 weeks to action.

It's a complete cluster...

Eph, you’re the sixth person to direct my attention to that video ha ha ha

Spectral, the whole lot of them ought to be ashamed, but she’s just the worst. It honestly feels like her entire goal is to make every mistake just that little bit more ridiculous and stupid to distract from the previous one.

She’s a dick.

I agree. I think May could have been an okay steady as she goes PM, but for the greatest legislative challenge the UK has faced in decades with a highly divided house, she's blundered consistently. I think her stupidest mistakes have been to make promises and state red lines that she's had not a chance in hell in delivering making her appear extremely duplicitous as well as incompetence. I still see no way out of this mess even if a decent challenger appears mind. The whole of the UK must appear somewhat daft on the world stage.
