  1. Just saw the new Grinch movie. I can safely say that it was good enough for me to forgive Illumnation for their Lorax movie

      @Rounoush you take that back! 

      Jim Carey was amazing in The Grinch

    3. Ghostsof1915


      Sorry. Karloff/Jones/Seuss is definitive.

      @5Fivehole0 Regardless of if Carrey's performance was great or not, that movie was hot garbage.

  2. Feeling pretty good about putting down $20 on Petterson for the Calder yesterday morning. Although I did also put $10 on Yamamoto just in case. Guy's guaranteed time with McDavid and Draisaitl, after all

      What odds you get?

      BCLC gave 6.25 to 1 on Petterson, 16 to 1 on Yamamoto.

  3. Ok, Netflix, I admit it, you were right to spam me with adverts for 'Hilda'. It's a pretty good cartoon. I'll treat it as your apology for that Magic School Bus reboot.

      I thought their "Final Space" cartoon was pretty good too.

      Hilda was awesome. Very pleasantly surprised by it.

      The only cartoons Alf likes is interestingly also starts with the letter H.  Hentai.  :o

  4. Well, no bet money for me.

  5. Anyone got money riding on the Finals? It's my first ever sport bet, and I got $45 on Vegas winning in 6 or 7 on BCLC. I also put $5 on Kuznetsov winning the Conn Smythe...not such a great move now.

      Couldn't bring myself to bet on it after seeing Sutherland assigned to the series.  I simply don't trust that scumbag not to rig the final.

    3. Neil HD

      Neil HD

      At the time I placed the bet, the payout on both series outcomes I picked was 4.9, so I put $22.50 on each. Also, the payout for Kuznetsov was 20.


      As for Sutherland, I see your point, although there are no Canadian teams to get screwed over here. Besides, if he does strike again, he would probably be under orders to steer things in Vegas' favour, given the massive PR/ ratings boost if the Cup is won by an inaugural team carrying the hopes of a city dealing with a somewhat recent tragedy.


      Also, I remember that Ovechkin and the Capitals management were pretty defiant when the NHL was enforcing the Olympic participation ban. Bettman probably won't forget that.


      Sorry if I sound like a conspiracy nut, but anything with millions of dollars at stake needs a cynical view.

      should've put 100 on Vegas to win back last summer when the odds were 500:1

      Hurr durr

  6. Man, Alex Jones could have been an amazing voice actor. It's a shame he was talked into Info Wars first

      It's a shame that his father didn't pull out 45 years ago.

      lol i think he's hilarious, some of the clips of him.

  7. The new Venom trailer has me cautiously optimistic. The CGI design of Venom himself is especially appealing.

      Can't be any worse than Spider-man Homecoming.

      Can't be any worse than Spiderman 3

    4. J-23


      Spider-Man 3 is a legendary movie.

  8. Just finished watching Titanic with the family over Easter dinner. Still one of the greatest stories ever put to film.

    1. Ghostsof1915


      I still love Kate Winslet. But the supporting actors on that movie where fantastic. Why is it the CGI in that holds up better than some later CGI?

  9. Down the stretch, all I want this team to do is help get Horvat his pound of flesh in the form of points.

    It looks like they're too inept to even accomplish that.

  10. A question of Pokemon fans familiar with Gen 1: Which of the original 151 Pokemon do you think was forgettable enough that it shouldn't have existed? My vote goes to Tangela 

  11. Wish I could jump in there and roll around in all that cascading white powder...

  12. Rough game, but at least Boeser isn't being held back by Horvat's absence.


    Also, I had the weirdest dream about Horvat. In the dream, the Canucks fell out of the playoff race on the last day of the season at the Oilers' hands, and the Sedins were directly involved in every goal against. Horvat then blew up at the team in a players meeting, tears and all, and directly called out Henrik.


    Then the dream cut to Horvat in a parked black SUV, cussing out people over the phone. For some reason, I was part of the team, but was wearing a boot for a foot injury. I was about to call Horvat to invite him to an escape room, but I woke up at that moment.

  13. Used a soldering iron for the first time yesterday. My wireless mouse is working again and I managed not to burn the house down. #SmallVictories

      I reattached the black and red wires leading from the batteries to the  circuit board. 


      Nothing much, but then again, I'm someone who dropped out of a welding course two weeks into it because I handled every tool like a hand grenade.

      Not usually a good sign when you rip the pin out a throw a perfectly good torch across the room...

  14. What an episode from Dragon Ball Super! Finally, a payoff that did something fresh and reignited that feeling of watching DBZ in my childhood

    1. Coconuts


      I'm loving Super tbh

  15. Man, the whole EA/Reddit debacle is equally delicious and depressing

      It's all of you dumbasses that keep feeding these companies cash after already initially buying their games that are at fault.


      Let them cry about how much games cost to make.  They can do what movie companies do and team up with other companies if they don't want to risk losing their rear ends if their game fails.

  16. Had a bison burger for the first time yesterday at Sharkey's. Very tasty, like a leaner version of ground lamb, as opposed to the beef flavor I was expecting, and it paired really well with the whiskey BBQ sauce.


    10/10 would eat again

      Bison's awesome


      Kangaroo burgers are exotic :3

  17. So I finally got around to watching Spider-Man Homecoming, and I was pleasantly surprised. Tom Holland did a great job portraying both Peter Parker and Spider-Man, and the writing and directing did a pretty good job of honouring the comic books while bringing new concepts to the table. Overall, it's equally as good as the first movie from the Sam Raimi trilogy.


    Also, that twist regarding the Vulture was beautiful. Had me doing this the whole scene: 306f4c6bc76bb57353d349af5c4964cbc09305c9f5029d319443922b8b3b8f07.jpg.ebe22a569dd48ecae22e27647f076b9f.jpg

      Saw the movie only a couple days ago and I managed to avoid being spoiled. The scene worked great. 

    2. J-23


      Like how they added the Shocker in it as well.

  18. God, it'll be such a kick in the family jewels if Tanev gets shipped out and Edler stays.

      It's not a matter of value, his inconsistency, and gaffes far outweigh any positives. I don't wish him ill will. He's in a position where he's relied on as a top d-man, and clearly can't handle the pressure or the minutes.

    3. Where's Wellwood

      We should trade Edler to Team Sweden. He plays good there. I think Karlsson would be a fair return. He has zero games played with Sweden this year. Sweden doesn't need him.

      Alex Edler was fine until the last 20 games of the season when he appeared to simply give up/got tired, whatever. 


      The Canucks have to rebuild somehow, and I think you get more for Tanev than Edler. You also can't trade them both or things turn into Edmonto circa 2009-2015.

  19. So who else is at the Rugby 7s tournament?

  20. Just a reminder that I'm hosting a game of Cards Against Humanity for CDC.

    We'll push the game to 6 pm PST, on the "falcon with a box on its head" server.

    The game will be labelled with my CDC username so it's easy to find, and the password will be Canucks.

      Something like that, but imagine that the fish is a foul-mouthed bigot that tries its hardest to offend everyone around it.

    3. Alflives


      Oh...I see.  It's a game of Hearts, and the nasty queen of spades is a guy down south who wears a dead possum on his head.  :lol:

    4. The Weasel

      The Weasel

      wait, the fish is trump?

  21. Anybody feel like playing some Cards Against Humanity before the game against Philly?

    I'll create a game by no later than 5:30 pm PST, on the "falcon with a box on its head" server.

    The game will be labelled with my CDC username so it's easy to find, and the password will be Canucks.

    I'm planning to limit the game to 12 players, so make sure you arrive quickly

      Think you could bring a few friends? I thought this would be more popular, but nobody's biting so far

  22. I'm watching the Super Bowl mainly because of Michael Vick's Players Tribune article.


    I have a huge problem with the guy stating that his "rock bottom" moment wasn't the dog-fighting conviction. Instead, it was calling the Falcons for his QB job back (as if it was even fair to expect them to do that), only to be told about Matt Ryan being drafted.


    To me, that's self-centered and egotistical to the point of psychopathy, and I doubt he would have stopped if he wasn't caught. It casts a shadow over the pro-animal welfare actions he taken in the years since his prison term.


    As an animal owner myself, I just can't forgive his actions, and I would be glad to see Matt Ryan and the Falcons win it all just so Vick becomes a footnote in the team's history.

      I understand where you are coming from, and I condone Michael or his actions. However, as a football fan, I am telling you Michael Vick will never be a footnote in Falcons history. He was, in his prime, the most dynamic player in football bar none. Think Bure when he broke into the league.

    3. Joe_Kerr


      Now imagine if Bure viciously murdered alot of dogs.... I hate Vick and I think its ridiculous that hes even aloud back into the NFL

  24. Avenue Q was absolutely amazing to watch last night! Even the best Hollywood films I've watched in the last few years weren't as enthralling as it was!
