And Fox's usual MO is to whine and play the victim.

I've seen speculation that it is Mueller-linked, but people are always saying that about everything.  On the other hand, Mifsud, the missing professor, has suddenly reappeared and wants to testify to the Senate.

This sounds much bigger then it initially would appear: their entire bread and butter is maintaining a direct rapport with their audience.The only thing that would make them silent is some kind of legal ugliness and not just a gag order and subpoena because Fox would relish the thought of violating that and paying the contempt.

He was a good age, and over the last decade he has seen his characters dominating modern culture and the screen, even enjoying his own pop celeb status because of it. Feels like he went out on a high note.

Want a moderate, centrist voice that unlike other candidates in this election, his criminal enterprises are both successful and not blatantly in your face?
Vote Kingpin.

Grant Morrison is, to me, the poor manís Alan Moore.

I used to think that and a lot of online conversation is a simplified Moore V's Morrison debate. I think this is largely down to the comments GMo has made about Moore and the way Moore responded. He seems to have a real chip on his shoulder or inferiority complex about his writing.
Morrison is a talented writer but he's never had that celebrated level of genre defining story to stand over as his the way Moore had Watchmen. Invisibles is amazing and weird but it's too out there for the average audience, However his contributions to properties that are not his own are where he has shone.
It's going to sound silly, but his Superman story titled with the very forgettable "All Star Superman", is the example of a Good superman story, it is character defining, loving, warm, funny and well written. Whenever someone says "Superman is a boring character" I point them, to this.

Doom Patrol is one of my all time favorites and I could go on about that at length but we already have comic threads so I wont derail further to gush over that.


Netflix produced Happy! which is one he wrote for the screen I think, so I wouldn't be surprised if they publish Invisibles.

This could be a beautiful train wreck, the Invisibles is a lot of things to a lot of different people, there. I suspect the counterculture anarchistic element will be sanded down and that will annoy people. But they could have some beautiful surrealism and portrayal of mysticism and the weird,  Lord Fannies origin being one I suspect will either be brilliant or piss off everyone, there wont be an in between.

I think preacher and legion broke down a door and allowed the more experimental comic stories to be portrayed, a few things of GM stuff are getting the TeeVee Treatment, there is also a Doom Patrol show with Brandan Fraiser as Robot man and Timothy Dalton as Chief, its something I have been praying to Jack Kirby's interdimensional time traveling ghost for for over a decade, and now that it's happening the prospect terrifies me.

Superhero fatigue has put a lot of people off, but if anyone interested in an overly indulgent hipster one there is Legion.

The cover of "Behind blue eyes" / psychic battle was cheesy and amazing. Lightly spoils season 2 but a cracking cover.

You jest but I can think of many many pro's of having a dead pimp republican as a senator over other republican senators

Ah ok, the legislation hamstring is a good win. What I am hoping for is that he gets frustrated with blocks and amendments, tries something stupid with executive orders and gets into hot water.

So what can the democrats do now that they have the house, and what did they miss out on by not getting the senate?

GDPR protects individual rights to their own data so I think it would be vpn agnostic, the websites themselves though don't like you using a vpn because anonymous data cant be monetised.
Trying to access any google page on TOR is a chore.

A photo or two a day of seemingly every meal I eat,  highly stylised and tasty looking but after a few weeks it becomes a water torture for you to observe

Vague political outrage at something the racist hotel concierge who became president did today.

A rare linked video of Klaus Nomi singing a cover of "I will survive". It's got novelty, but you'll never watch it again after liking this status.

Dark souls 2 Scholar of the first sin was a huge improvement, the DLC worlds really improved the variety of the game and its bosses required much more thought then the main game where most were, circle hit back leg.
I played one game through DS1 remaster but I've not gone hunting the weapons and souls.
Dark souls 3 was punishing, Nameless king I found very difficult but very rewarding, I don't find the early parts of the game as satisfying as the others, so I haven't gone back for many plays/
It's over a year since I played Bloodborne and when I pass it on the what to play screen I keep getting an inkling, may have to go back that soon..
