  1. I know, right? LOL We met at the Them Crooked Vultures show in Atlanta - great show. Back in the days before nice smartphone pics, some kind of slider phone I had. I'm even uglier now, if you can believe it, LOL.
  2. Yes! My wife and I went Sunday, and it was so powerful. Denzell can usually be counted on to deliver. Awesome movie.
  3. Sam - Forum looks great, but one issue is the size of the YouTube embeds. They're so large, they seem to take forever to load a page in threads that are video-embed-heavy, like the Favorite Movie Scene thread. Almost couldn't get back off the page as it took so long to load the numerous video embeds. Don't know if display size has an effect, but something makes those threads REALLY laggy. Maybe if the display size was reduced it would help speed up loading. Or not - I'm certainly no expert. Just reporting what I've observed, LOL. Thanks!
  4. OK, so I heard about this movie as a quirky, offbeat comedy. The description referred to it as a dark comedy. Let's just say it's very heavy on the dark, with bits of comedy throughout. Seriously, this was an incredibly depressing movie laced with cringe-inducing, uncomfortable situations. When you think of the most uncomfortable scenes you can imagine with guys like Zach Galifianakis or Ben Stiller, and multiply it exponentially, you'll have a glimpse of what this movie is like. At a number of points I wanted to abandon it, but the farther I went, the more I figured I needed to see where this was going. And it was a little difficult to follow the progression of the movie, how the dog ended up in the various situations. The ending was so shocking that it forced laughter out of me while simultaneously making me feel guilty for laughing. So if you like bizarre stories with more than a little black - and I mean very black - humor, this is it. EDITED FOR HUMOROUS ANECDOTE: The movie opens with a close-up of the wiener dog filling the entire screen. Watching on my brother's 60" 4K curved screen, the detail was amazing. So amazing, in fact, that his Siberian Husky began trying to sniff the wiener dog's butt on the TV, following it as it moved. It was LOL-worthy.
  5. Very astute, I have no problems with that summary. The theory I'm beginning to believe is that Maeve's revolt is Ford's new narrative. I read it in a \W/ group on Facebook, and it's sounding very plausible the more I re-watch this last episode. Of course, I created a Maeve meme from episode 9.
  6. I can say beyond a certainty. after watching last night's Episode 9, I have never been so happy to have taken up watching a TV show. This is the absolute coolest, most intellectually stimulating show I've ever seen. The acting is incredible - the cast all seem to realize how awesome it is. It literally feels like watching a 10-part movie. <<< SPOILER ALERT >>> Thandie Newton as Maeve is sofa king badass. This scene last night made my head asplode. FREEZE ALL MOTOR FUNCTIONS. MOST BADASS. LINE. EVER. I fuckin' died.
  7. Thank you so much. It's been a blur, but we're making it.
  8. I'm pretty certain. He had been through a lot of problems before, but seemed to be doing well and appeared happy by all accounts. We viewed his body today and tomorrow he'll be cremated. My brother said they didn't want a particular specific place where Sean was (I.e., a burial plot), but rather spread part of his ashes at Key West and part in the mountains, 2 places he loved. That's very thoughtful, and appreciated. Thank you.
  9. Thank you, CP. Very much appreciated. Life turns on a dime.
  10. Thanks so much, I sincerely appreciate your and everyone's kind words. It truly is - as they say - a parent's worst nightmare. Fortunately we are all experiencing some incredible bonding, as well, so even in the depths of grief there's an amazing degree of positive energy that helps to sustain us. So while I'm very sad at the loss of this wonderful young man, I still grateful for the love the rest of our family is experiencing. This is Sean the last time we were together back in July with my son Devin.
  11. Much appreciated, Steve. Thank you.
  12. I'd like to thank each and every one of y'all for your kind words. It is still so surreal to realize what has happened. I'm so very thankful for the opportunity to be here with and for my brother and his family. Thank you all.
  13. Thanks Sean - wow - it means a lot. It's been a rough day, but the least I can do is be here for my brother and his family. This is even tougher than I imagined, every person that comes by to offer their support results in a new wave of tears and grief - it's physically exhausting. But again, if my brother is muddling through it all, the least I can do is be here with him. Thanks again, it means a lot.
  14. Rest In Peace to my 24 year-old nephew Sean, of an overdose. On my way to be with my brother and his family at this terribly difficult time.
  15. Is that Stone Gossard on lead? He really nailed the solo. And that's one of Page's greatest solos. 100% TypeO approved.
