General weird al thread.
I saw him in concert a few years ago. It was pretty cool and I highly recommend it. Costume changes for every other song pretty much.
Is it sad that I only know of his polka cover medleys because they were used in so many of those VCR-edited anime music videos of Evangelion?
...and then there's Iraq Strong.
Came across this the other day while talking to some relatives. It's bizarre seeing ACU-likes next to stalenhelms.
It's not a French thing. In really, really old customs it was that you saluted palm-out if you'd lost a war/major battle/etc.
British Army salutes the same way, btw. British Navy doesn't for slightly different customs (dirty palms of sailors, basically).
If we followed the custom we'd also be saluting palm out but fuck that we're America so we've never lost a major conflict
Only nation I had seen doing it was the French.
Still looks stupid as fuck though.
>if you'd lost a war/major battle/etc.
...So it is French?
>yfw UCP is awesomely well suited for mountain warfare
>and nothing else
Watched the premiere and the encore presentation; looks interesting. The main protagonist is an expatriate scion of a "major Middle East state," returning to his homeland for his nephew's wedding.
The wife has questions about the protagonist's past, and nags him about it enough to make him remember (giving us convenient flashbacks), but doesn't persist overmuch.
The son is a douchbag (and likely into the homosex) and the daughter even whines about "the patriarchy," but at least Anne Winters is easy on the eyes.
The main draw of the show, however, is the family dynamic of the powerful al-Fayeeds, that runs this Middle East country, and how the wayward son may actually be the change the state needs...
Washington Post says it "shows no imagination about the Middle East," and the Boston Globe says it "shows promise and raises questions."
I wasn't too optimistic seeing the ads for it before hand, but it's actually pretty intriguing. The entire time I was watching it I get a big "Devil's Double" vibe.
I was wondering why the show is named "Tyrant" if it focuses on the ex-pat son taking the reins... Until you see his father say "It should have been him [the ex-pat son]" that was to take leadership. And the ending flashback.
So... I'm guessing road to hell paved with good intentions and this guy being Walter White cranked up to 11.
When they introduced the American ambassador and his not-wife, I wondered if maybe the show might have a "Benghazi" moment later on in the season.
That bit about what WahhhhPo said about it caught my eye.
That the author is going to base her judgement of the show on comparisons with the new Miss Marvel and a Philip K. Dick ripoff instead of placing it in context with the fact that it's from the the guy who did '24' and 'Homeland' might suggest that she's a bit out of touch.
So I was watching the encore of the last episode (didn't see it the first time around because my power was out), and the country this show takes place in, Abbudin, must have really good relations with the "Zionists," because the al-Fayeed military is noticeably well-stocked with Tavors...
It's created by merchants and filmed in Merchantland. It's a jew fantasy, like what Newsroom is for democrats.
>Why can't the people who oppose us be more like us hurr durr
That kind of sad fantasy.
The show has been decent so far but they're setting up some retarded issues like the fag son + muslimland. Also the lead actor isn't too convincing. I'll dump it once it goes south.
Best job at world cup?
You can make a full lenght movie with only Robben and Neymar...
And a sequel with the spaniards (if they only had classified after the groups phase).
Just rewatched Dirty Work for the first time in like ten years and god damn this movie is way funnier than I remember. Highly suggest it if you like Norm McDonald, Artie Lang, and Chris Farley all in one movie.
In honor of this gem of the late nineties, post your favorite comedies that barely anyone knows about
if you like that you might like this
And this one borders between funny and just plain bad
we're on a theme here
Just watched this and was gonna post it, great movie!
I've only heard of this movie about 3 years ago.
>a huge accomplishment, nothing to do with SEALs
Goddammit. I had successfully forgotten about that show. Now you mention it, I go to IMDB and see there's a new season out. Now I have to watch said season. I have exams, dammit.
Season 4 (Cinemax S3) is terrible and will ruin your fond memories of the previous seasons.
I swear S4 was written by a god damn 13 year old.
It really wasnt that bad.
Denial ain't just a river in Egypt honey.
I love the creativity here.
