Whoa whoa whoa - CJ was not a real Ramone? I like Marky, but he has always had the tendency to pad his legacy. He's the last one left, so who's gonna dispute it? But CJ was very important to the band in its last years and played in the Ramones for half as long as Marky did total.

Sep 14, 2013 EJM11 commented on Why Did Star Trek Into Darkness Suck?.
I liked it. I thought it packed an emotional punch, was fun, and was genuinely happy to see a new Kahn story. It's just a Star Trek film, for chrissakes. Go back and watch The Voyage Home and tell me that Into Darkness is not an entertaining film.

Do complicated math in your head. I don't know why, but it works. I just stroll up and say to myself "Ok, 37 multiplied by 31" (this is hard for me). As soon as I start working it out, my brain unclenches and I start to piss. It's like magic, and it never fails.

A terrible person? That's a bit harsh. I'm pretty sure you are not electing Baldwin to represent you on MSNBC. He represents his own views, and if you don't want to hear them then don't watch the show. Grow up, Paul.

yes! That's what I meant! But thanks.

The fact that Boyle wrote a decent sequel helps...

What is your problem? I have said the exact same thing - I thought it was fine. I'm sorry if that doesn't validate your feelings, but since when does a contrary opinion give you the right to fly into a rage?

It was JUST FINE. It wasn't Pulp Fiction. And I'm also sick of people acting like not "getting" Django Unchained is some sort of act of moral or intellectual failure.

Paul, I hear you on this and I know you were a bookseller. But you are flogging a dead horse. People don't necessarily need a paid employee of the book industry to recommend books anymore than they need a hipster in a record store to tell them what is cool.

Wow, i just started using Reddit and had no idea it had accumulated such a well of rage beneath it. Surprise - huge website with huge readership and participation does not reflect your ideal society.
Dec 5, 2011 EJM11 commented on How Do You Deal With Selling Gear On Craigslist?.
I have sold two guitars on CL and both times it was a pain in the ass, but i got rid of them for the cash I wanted. The worst are people who come by, look at it, and somehow are too shy to tell you they are no longer interested. So they set up another time with the excuse that they want to bring their effects board or something bullshit and then disappear forever.
