Wolfguard: Yup. And so it goes today. Piracy could be nearly eradicated by the modern sea powers if there was a will to do so. But by and large piracy is considered a nuisance. As long as it does not present a real threat there isn't much pressure to act against it.

Navies are busy, and it's too expensive, too complicated and too much of a hassle to bother. It's cheaper to just pay the ransom and get on with business.

I think modern pirates know this and they know just how far they can go without attracting unwanted attention.

Belated Deadguy Memorial Buffy Tuesday Question

Assuming slayer participation is not automatic these days, how is the watcher's council recruiting (slayers)?

This has been a controversial issue since Buffy and the scoobies allied with the new Watcher's Council in the fall of 2003 (see Into the Abyss, Good Faith, Little Slayer Lost and the like). In the aftermath of Chosen, Buffy pushed for the new slayers to lead normal lives (see Beyond the Horizon). That desired, Buffy still felt responsible for empowering young women who may not have wanted to be so empowered. Buffy also realized an empowered young person was not necessarily a good or wise person.

No nap time for Buffy.

Anyway, cutting to the now. The real problem was not recruiting slayers, but socializing them and then overseeing those who chose normalcy over being a stake-nun (one slayer's description of the calling).

During the early years, the time of "The Gathering", the protocol was to first find them, then befriend them, and then introduce and orient them to the back story behind their powers. This could take weeks, even months. Those who were interested in being a Slayer - which is really different from having the power, would be invited to visit (redacted) where they would get a taste of being a Slayer. And then ... but that's for another night.



Good Night to All

Barbary (Islamic) Pirates (Continued) When Algiers and Tunis, who were both accustomed to American cowardice and acquiescence, saw the newly independent United States had both the will and the right to strike back, they quickly abandoned their allegiance to Tripoli. The war with Tripoli lasted for four more years, and raged up again in 1815. The bravery of the U.S. Marine Corps in these wars led to the line "to the shores of Tripoli" in the Marine Hymn, and they would forever be known as "leathernecks" for the leather collars of their uniforms, designed to prevent their heads from being cut off by the Muslim scimitars when boarding enemy ships.
Islam, and what its Barbary followers justified doing in the name of their prophet and their god, disturbed Jefferson quite deeply. America had a tradition of religious tolerance, the fact that Jefferson, himself, had co-authored the Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom, but fundamentalist Islam was like no other religion the world had ever seen. A religion based on supremacism, whose holy book not only condoned but mandated violence against unbelievers, was unacceptable to him. His greatest fear was that someday this brand of Islam would return and pose an even greater threat to the United States.
This should bother every American. That Muslims have brought about women-only classes and swimming times at taxpayer-funded universities and public pools; that Christians, Jews, and Hindus have been banned from serving on juries where Muslim defendants are being judged; Piggy banks and Porky Pig tissue dispensers have been banned from workplaces because they offend Islamist sensibilities; ice cream has been discontinued at certain Burger King locations because the picture on the wrapper looks similar to the Arabic script for Allah; public schools are pulling pork from their menus; on and on and on and on.
It's death by a thousand cuts, or inch-by-inch as some refer to it, and most Americans have no idea that this battle is being waged every day across America. By not fighting back, by allowing groups to obfuscate what is really happening, and not insisting that the Islamists adapt to our own culture, the United States is cutting its own throat with a politically correct knife, and helping to further the Islamists agenda. Sadly, it appears that today's America's leaders would rather be politically correct than victorious in its defense of the First Amendment!
Any doubts, just "Google Thomas Jefferson vs. the Muslim World."
And don't forget the significance of the recent beheadings on "the beach (shores) of Tripoli"!
Do you think that they weren't sending a message????
Agent Cooper, DaddyCatALSO: The countries of the Barbary Coast claimed the Koran gave them the right to carry on such extortion. Countries in which Islam is the state religion have Sharia Law as their guiding principle. Now, the normal Liberal Progressive reaction to my carryings on about historical Islam is (Spoiler)Well, yeah, but Thomas Jefferson, you know, had slaves and he had children with Sally Hemings.. The Muslims of the Barbary Coast were very involved in the Slave Trade of the American Colonies. Islam holds that people of other religions are not worthy of respect or humane treatment.

Another, possibly little known fact about the Barbary Pirate Affair was the US did
consider paying the extortion. We weren't against doing so in principle, we just

Barbary (Islamic) Pirates (Continued)
In 1786, Thomas Jefferson and John Adams met with Tripoli's ambassador to Great Britain to ask by what right his nation attacked American ships and enslaved American citizens, and why Muslims held so much hostility towards America, a nation with which they had no previous contacts.
The two future presidents reported that Ambassador Sidi Haji Abdul Rahman Adja had answered that Islam "was founded on the Laws of their Prophet, that it was written in their Quran that all nations who would not have acknowledged their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as Prisoners, and that every Musselman (Muslim) who should be slain in Battle was sure to go to Paradise."
Despite this stunning admission of premeditated violence on non-Muslim nations, as well as the objections of many notable American leaders, including George Washington, who warned that caving in was both wrong and would only further embolden the enemy, for the following fifteen years the American government paid the Muslims millions of dollars for the safe passage of American ships or the return of American hostages. The payments in ransom and tribute amounted to over twenty percent of the United States government annual revenues in 1800.
Jefferson was disgusted. Shortly after his being sworn in as the third President of the United States in 1801, the Pasha of Tripoli sent him a note demanding the immediate payment of $225,000 plus $25,000 a year for every year forthcoming. That changed everything.
Jefferson let the Pasha know, in no uncertain terms, what he could do with his demand. The Pasha responded by cutting down the flagpole at the American consulate and declared war on the United States. Tunis, Morocco, and Algiers immediately followed suit. Jefferson, until now, had been against America raising a naval force for anything beyond coastal defense, but, having watched his nation be cowed by Islamic thuggery for long enough, decided that is was finally time to meet force with force.
He dispatched a squadron of frigates to the Mediterranean and taught the Muslim nations of the Barbary Coast a lesson he hoped they would never forget. Congress authorized Jefferson to empower U.S. ships to seize all vessels and goods of the Pasha of Tripoli and to cause to be done all other acts of precaution or hostility as the state of war would justify. (To Be Continued.)

Good Morning Everyone,

DaddyCatALSO: Well, I guess I really don't care who fictional characters have sex with.
However, I've had my fill of those sorts of stories.

Perhaps this is me projecting my real world preferences on my entertainment preferences. In real life, I am a firm believer of people having PRIVATE lives and interactions--and I am not interested in knowing anything about that. In fact, I think less of people who insist on splaying their private lives all over the world and making spectacles of themselves. They're free to do so of course--I'm just not interested.

SO...I ask myself...why would that interest me in a fictional world? The answer is that it doesn't.

Now, one could argue that certain sexual encounters, such as Buffy and Angel having sex are pivotal--and they are insofar as they had a major impact on the story. But a character having some casual sexual encounter, and holds little meaning for the characters, has even LESS meaning for me as a viewer/reader, etc. That's what pretty much all depictions of sex are on TV.

White Wings,

Thank you. "Unbeliever" as in the BBS is alive or the BBS is dead? I've always stated that we do not know what happened to the BBS. We did not see Dru kill him. OTOH, Dru was a bit peckish. *g*

In the vast majority of television scenes, if the characters are alive when the scene ends it is usually assumed they remain alive unless and until something in the story says otherwise.1 That said, people do make inferences and some scenes are suggestive of what happened after the camera pulled away.

A classic example is the final scene of the series finale of The Sopranos. I have only seen one episode from this series, but I have seen the series finale scene several times and read the range of opinions of fans.

!Tony was the BBS's godson. Ponder on that. *g*!

Trivia Girl: Willie and Little Bo.


Marine Corp Theme: To the Shores of Tripoli? (Part 1 of 3) Most Americans are unaware of the fact that over two hundred years ago the United States had declared war on Islam and Thomas Jefferson led the charge!
At the height of the eighteenth century, Muslim pirates were the terror of the Mediterranean and a large area of the North Atlantic. They attacked every ship in sight, and held the crews for exorbitant ransoms. Those taken hostage were subjected to barbaric treatment and wrote heart-breaking letters home, begging their government and family members to pay whatever their Mohammedan captors demanded.
These extortionists of the high seas represented the Islamic nations of Tripoli, Tunis, Morocco and Algiers, collectively referred to as the Barbary Coast and presented a dangerous and unprovoked threat to the new American Republic. Before the Revolutionary War, U.S. merchant ships had been under the protection of Great Britain. When the U.S. declared its independence and entered into war, the ships of the United States were protected by France. However, once the war was won, America had to protect its own fleets.
Thus, the birth of the U.S. Navy. Beginning in 1784, seventeen years before he would become president, Thomas Jefferson became America's Minister to France. That same year, the U.S. Congress sought to appease its Muslim adversaries by following in the footsteps of European nations who paid bribes to the Barbary States rather than engaging them in war.
In July of 1785, Algerian pirates captured American ships, and the Dye of Algiers demanded an unheard-of ransom of $60,000. It was a plain and simple case of extortion, and Thomas Jefferson was vehemently opposed to any further payments. Instead, he proposed to Congress the formation of a coalition of allied nations who together could force the Islamic states into peace. A disinterested Congress decided to pay the ransom. (To be continued.)

Quoted by permission of Spring Street Creative Productions:

Once Arava noticed their companions were all more or less dozing, she inhaled and whispered, "I want you to know I've done this before," in a single breath.

Miranda simply looked at her with a smile and replied, "So have I, and I mean really done it, not just played around with friends as a kid."

"I mean that, too, and thank God, I was so afraid you'd ask 'Done what?' I guess this means we're both showing all the cards."

"No, I always keep a few turned down about some things, but about us, about," she switched to silently mouthing, "sex," then returned to a whisper, everything is face-up," she said, plainly, then mischievously added, "For now." Arava responded with a satisfactory snort.

They rode on, telling each other, not in details, but how, in general terms, it had happened , with Indira and with Rhonda, and discussed some future plans, insofar as anyone can do during a war, and even more insofar as possible at this early stage of their relationship. Sometimes they held hands.

The train conductor announced their stop and the women grabbed their bags and debarked. Arava pointed to their left, "It's right around that corner and then two blocks right," and they began walking.

They came to the front of a large house on the edge of the village. "Well, here we are; the largest guest room is in the back, a good-sized bedsitting room with an attached American-style shower room/loo included. A couple of the secretaries from where I work took me with them on a hiking trip in November and again last month and we stayed here, and I knew I wanted to show it to you. It has a good-sized balcony with a great western view," said Arava, beaming.

"Meals?" asked Miranda, as they exited the car.

"I paid extra in advance to have breakfast and tea included, and mailed her a few things. The landlady will sell meals individually, but the food is better if you order ahead, and we can eat in her kitchen, Mrs. Trembley is a charming old woman, and half Scottish, or we can get trays and take them to our room, there's a nice little table there. There's a pub and a couple corner stands in town for lunches or late suppers, if we get hungry while we're out, but I make no promises as to what's in the meat pies at the pub."

Miranda was chuckling as Arava lifted the small wooden door mallet and tapped it against the sounding board. Both halves of the Dutch door opened and Mrs. Trembley stepped out with a big smile, "Arava, dear, you look positively glowing today!"

"Thanks, Mrs Trembley, this is my friend Miranda Sinclair, she's a nurse, as you can probably see for yourself, sorry."

"And a fair and lovely angel of mercy you are, lass. I had an aunt in Glasgow who married a Sinclair; their son is a Brigadier down in Sicily now. Now you two run along and freshen up, tea is in twenty minutes."

The mealtime conversation was pleasant, mostly small talk, the landlady telling them some things about the town and the surrounding country; the food was less impressive, the tea being unsweetened and just a tiny bit harsh, the sausage having no detectible meat except the casing, and the vegetables bland, but all edible and a welcome change from their normal course.

After, they returned to the room, took off their shoes, loosened their hair, poured themselves brandy and seltzer, and stood barefoot on the balcony, sipping and watching the lowering but still high sun in silence for a while.

Arava sighed and said, "I wish I could smoke, but I finished my last one in the car," mostly just to break the silence.

"Well, I have enough for a couple days," said Miranda, pulling out a pack of Old Golds, taking out one cigarette, putting the packet away, lighting it, taking a deep drag, and exhaling.

"Umm, and what about offering me one?" The engineer's annoyance was real, but tinged with a bit of humor and a sense the soldier was planning something.

"Let me show you how some of us in the Army do it when nobody is looking," the blonde said, handing the cigarette to the redhead, who inhaled, exhaled through her nose - the taste was stronger than the Juleps she was used to, but she'd had this brand before- and handed it back. The butt tasted just slightly of, well, Arava didn't actually know but presumably it was Miranda, which sent a flash of warmth through Arava's gut.

They chatted a bit while passing it back and forth, about ten minutes. Arava found herself paying close attention to the sound Miranda made as the cylinder hit her lips and she drew in smoke; the redhead realized she must have heard it any thousand times before, but had never paid attention to it before now. A bit of listening and she realized she was making similar sounds, and found the whole of it unbelieveably arousing.

When it was smoked down, Arava took one last drag, stubbed it out, a bit too fiercely, sipped at her drink, and watched as her companion picked the butt from the ashtray and field-stripped it, scattering the tobacco and ash into the garden, rolling the paper into a tiny, almost invisible ball that she tossed after. The engineer looked Miranda in the eye, and said, "I never knew an ordinary cigarette could feel so good . . . when I saw you at that bar, as soon as I recognized you, I knew that someday, we'd be somewhere, together, like this."

"To tell the truth, I had recognized you before I even decided to stand at the bar, and did it because it was near your table. And as for knowing we'd get to a place like here, it goes back further for me. I'm not saying I'm a fortuneteller," she reached out, stroking the fiery hair, leaning in closer, "but, when I first met you, at Pearl, America wasn't even at war, our husbands were still alive, before I'd ever been with another woman, and from what you told me on the ride up, the same with you, I knew we'd be together, somehow."

Arava shivered, and as Miranda's lips moved closer, she asked, "Here? I mean, in the window, out in plain sight of anyone out there? I want you badly, but I'm not worth you being in Disciplinary Barracks until 1972. There's . . . ."

The nurse silenced her with a fingertip "There's many places where they look, to catch someone in uniform doing this, and other places where they don't bother, and this is one of those other places. I need to kiss you, more than anything."

wolfguard - A thrilling life story for the BBS. You left out the part where he had plastic surgery and a name change, but it really works. LOL! to Occult-con. One would never think that you are an Unbeliever. *g*

Christopher Marlowe - That vacation house accounted for most of the missing. Sadly, one of the women has been found. On the bright side, the family dog was found whimpering up in a tree way down river. He was identified by his microchip.

I watched some of Texas Rising last night, and wound up turning it off. Nothing against the production, but I've been to Presidio La Bahia and heard a lot of what happened there, and did not want to hear it again. I'll wait for the next episode.

Beldin - Last I saw, they were thinking that the Midlothian dam might hold, after they'd done a lot of pumping. They may have had rain since then.

It's good that you have a boat. You may need it this year. I hope you are up on a hill.

We've gone from "massive El Nino coming" to "El Nino fell apart, no El Nino" to "Mild El Nino" to "Super El Nino". Might one think that the weather men don't know everything yet?

The Shanshu Prophecy was a prophecy contained within the Scrolls of Aberjian and,
as translated by Wesley Wyndam-Pryce, foresaw the coming of a vampire with a soul
that would play a pivotal role in the apocalypse. As a reward, he would be
restored into a mortal human being.

Deadguy Memorial Buffy Tuesday Question


Even if you believe the BBS is dead (and are WRONG!), pretend he isn't and give us a summary of what he's been up to?

1998 The BBS plays the Scheherazade Ruse on Drusilla,

1999 Having seen The Books of Ascension, the BBS spends May attending Occult-Con in the UK.

2000 In exchange for special services, the BBS acquires a look-alike of himself from Professor Walsh.

2000 The BBS arranges for his store to be attacked by vampires which leads to his apparent death (see The Real Me)

2001 The BBS leaves Sunnydale for northern California where he opens an online magic store.

2002 Heeding the warning, 'From beneath you it devours', the BBS leaves California and the states and settles near a Coven of witches in England.

2003 Returns to the states. Shortly thereafter, a new magic shop appears on the Dark Web.

2007 Cashes out.

2015 Said to be retired and raising cats in Australia - or perhaps Italy? I think it depends on when you look.

Just turned on the computer and the television ...

This the panel in question? *g*

C-SPAN, National Constitution Center's "Free Speech" discussion, April 13, 2015


I suspect they are civil, because they value reason. This is probably also true of the sort of person who would be in the audience. No one gets points for the sort of tactics that pass as 'reasoning' in most public venues.

Happy Birthday #1BTVSFan, Mischief Maker, neo, Rydini, and Zozo!

Christopher Marlowe - A coworker went to church with one of the families that got washed away in their vacation house by the Blanco River. They are still missing. For myself, it was more horrifying than scary, except for a brief spell when a tornado warning was pointed right at my area. But it veered off, and later turned out to be something that briefly touched down in some mobile homes and didn't hurt anyone. It was enough for me to move a comfortable chair, mobile hotspot, a flashlight, and a charger where I could slide into an interior closet quickly. Next time I must remember some water.

You saw civil disagreements on religion? That must have been astonishing. I thought people had forgotten how to do that.

wolfguard - Well, you know Buffy had that dream about opening an office supply warehouse with Giles. Since she doesn't seem to have done so, I wondered if it was really about the BBS. *g* Why not Nevada? They have offices, and people are bound to be really superstitious. I was going to say that the climate is not salubrious for vampires, but I remembered that Angel had a history there.

I wonder if the BBS went to Vegas and opened an office supply warehouse as a front?

Slayersteph? I met her at one of the PBPs. There were a lot of people to meet, but I thought she
worked for FedEx. Or had aspirations towards journalism.

lostinamerica - I'm above the flood areas, but the heavy rain had me reconsidering the
drainage on the uphill side of my house. It worked, and the water stayed out, but I don't much like
ponding against the foundation. I have to cross one of the traditional flood areas to go in to work,
but it is reported open.

My brother is in Houston, and last night he texted "Gozer is coming." But his place has never
flooded that he knows of, including during Alicia or Ike, and this morning he reported in dry and with
power.

Christopher Marlowe: Did you know that 71% of black births are illegitimate? THAT kind of problems! I would think that everyone (even Obama) thinks that something needs to be done. The HBO Series "The Wire" is instructive in what has happened in the City of Baltimore. The Series ran maybe 5 Seasons or so. Dominic West, a Brit, did an American accent as a cop in Baltimore. It also starred Wendell Pierce and Michael K. Williams and Idris Elba (also with an American accent) and Lance Reddick and Clarke Peters and a lot of great character actors. It shows how Baltimore was being run under mostly black leadership and how brutal the racial politics were. The city has been under Democratic Party control for 30+ years and crime and drugs are rampant; the War on Poverty has sunk lots of money into it. Lots of people are on welfare and the streets are dangerous. It might maybe be worse than Detroit, because Detroit DID have the car companies. Baltimore had 26 shootings over this past Memorial Day weekend, so far, with 9 murders.

I have personally met President Blade and he's a sharp guy so it would GREATLY surprise me if he not only agreed with O'Reilly's sentiments but was appreciative that someone actually stated the case. On one hand Blade benefits from standing out from the crowd, but on the other hand he's often tarred with the same brush.

Christopher Marlowe,

Did you present any of these alternative programs?

Sometimes people get entranced by a particular means at the cost of attending to the ends.

Deng, the man who broke away from Mao's policies, said it didn't matter the color of a cat so long as it could catch mice. That said, are cats the only way to catch mice? Why are we trying to catch the mice?

wolfguard That may be so, if
I was able to give an actual
reaction to his ideas! One of them
is an innovative solution to the
homeless problem that was developed
in San Antonio. I had already
heard of it and was impressed by
it. He wants to bring that idea to
our city. I can see why, but I
also saw other programs that I
might think work better given the
resources and makeup of our city
and might be more politically
feasible.

They may also believe you represent
a certain ideological faction of
the city. If so, how you responded
to his ideas might suggest how that
faction would respond.

It got to the point where he was
just blathering on about what ideas
he had for the various issues in
the community, like homelessness.
Great ideas, but it was just him
droning on about and not seeking
any kind of feedback. At that rate,
he was going to be talking for
hours, so I simply told him I would
send my thoughts to him later.

and knocks on the door. A woman
answers.

Bear "Do you have a loaf of brown
bread?"

Woman: "No"

Bear: "White will do"

C, E-flat, and G go into a bar. The bartender says, "Sorry, but we don't serve minors." So E-flat leaves, and C and G have an open fifth between them. After a few drinks, the fifth is diminished, and G is out flat. F comes in and tries to augment the situation, but is not sharp enough. D comes in and heads for the bathroom, saying, "Excuse me; I'll just be a second." Then A comes in, but the bartender is not convinced that this relative of C is not a minor. Then the bartender notices B-flat hiding at the end of the bar and says, "Get out! You're the seventh minor I've found in this bar tonight." E-flat comes back the next night in a three-piece suit with nicely shined shoes. The bartender says, "You're looking sharp tonight. Come on in, this could be a major development." Sure enough, E-flat soon takes off his suit and everything else, and is au natural. Eventually C sobers up and realizes in horror that he's under a rest. C is brought to trial, found guilty of contributing to the diminution of a minor, and is sentenced to 10 years of D.S. without Coda at an upscale correctional facility.

ShadowQuest--It just seems to me that people who run the horse industry should schedule the races when the athletes participating, ie the horses, can compete at their best. It's their own fault people keep complaining, because it's such a simple fix. I mean, the NFL doesn't schedule the Super Bowl in a way that would give an advantage to one team or the other.

Good Morning Everyone,

YAY WHITE WINGS

Christopher Marlowe
: From what I've heard, it sounds like they are trying to put too much into one movie--and it sounds more like Avengers 3, than Cap 3.
BUT, those guys did a great job with the first two Cap movies, so I'm definitely looking forward to it.

The Captain America Movies top my list. It gets a little muddled in the middle, but it would go like this.

1) Captain America 2: Winter Soldier
2) Captain America 1: The First Avenger
3) Iron Man 1
4) Avengers
5) Thor 1
6) Iron Man 3
7) Avengers 2
8) Thor 2
9) Iron Man 2

Like I said: 3-5 and 6-9 are minor distinctions between them.

Zoom through

lostinamerica I regret that I cannot answer your questions. I really
know very little about horse racing. I watch the Derby, Preakness & Belmont
each year, and that's it. I don't know anything about odds, or who has a good bloodline, or anything of that nature.

I don't even have a favorite going in - I watch the parade, while they talk
briefly about the horses, then I watch the race. I'll pick one or two I like
the looks of, then settle in to see who wins.

What I was saying earlier about spoilers is that often a horse that hasn't run
in either of the other two races will come in to the Belmont, with the intention
of "stealing the Crown," so to speak. There are plenty of races before then
that these horses could run in, but their owners want to have the "upset horse."
And it's worked. That's what happened last year to California Chrome.

It's not just the increased distances of the track that has an impact, but also
shipping the horse from state to state. Some just don't travel well. Some
don't like the increased crowd size, some don't like the difference in track.

The Sport of Kings is not an exact science.

Christopher Marlowe,

While your approach provides more
objectivity than the existing
way, each viewer will still bring
their own expectations and
experiences to the performances.
I've seen two portrayals of Henry
8th, both different. How does one
decide which is the better job of
acting?

wolfgaurd I think there is some merit to that arguement. Putting an actor
like Jim Carrey, say, up against Daniel Day-Lewis. They should be rated on their own merits.


I can see a test where all the actors are given the same character, script and
setting and then they are filmed giving their interpretation. An award goes to the actor who best realized the character.

Christopher Marlowe,

For films? Entertainment?
Everything? I believe too many
people like awards for the practice
to end.

Just got done watching Rats of Nihm with my
daughter. I loved that movie as a kid. As the
credits rolled, I noticed that both Shannon Doherty
and Wil Wheaton did voices on it. Mind. Blown.

wolfguard Since we were
talking about awards earlier, how
about doing away with awards
altogether?

Agent Cooper that sounds fun and delicious!

I'm not entirely sure what I will do yet. There is a local arts center that is usually closed on a Monday, but will be open that day next week, so I'll probably hang out there for a bit. It also depends on the weather.

Chris Marlowe: As a matter of fact, yes. Every year on M-day my bestie's family holds a kind of breakfast open house. They set up a bunch of chairs by the pool and his dad makes a huge pile of eggs and pancakes, you name it. A bunch of their family and friends show up. So I'll be hanging there.

How about yourself?

Avengers II was fantastic! I loved it!

And you are meant to watch ALL the movies, and bleed over is extensive and fully intended because... !!!!MAJOR OVER-ARCHING MULTI MOVIE PLOT SPOILER FOLLOWS!!!!!---]] ALL of these marvel movies are all coming to the same end point. The intro movies were Phase I, introducing the players and the universe. Phase II is happening now, with the major theme emerging in common with all the characters and the major plot being revealed. Phase III is when the FINAL BIG BAD is finally confronted by ALL the heroes together. If you've seen all the movies up to A2, you probably know who THAT is and are starting to see how this is all going to come together.

I think Connor graduated from college and is now a consulting on security, self defense and other matters. Oddly enough, I don't see him taking up his father's mantle of helping the helpness, at least not directly. He doesn't have much to atone for.

Happy non-Angel Wednesday!

KAM For his relatively brief appearance, I did quite like Vision, particulary after his 'born yesterday' line.

Good Morning Everyone,

YAY GENREFAN

Deadguy QOD
: An ad agency...no, can't see that. He works at LearJet. :)

Maverick: There were certainly some traditional Ultron elements, and maybe it is directly lifted from a comic story, but not that close, because Stark didn't create Ultron. I've stopped trying to pretend that I can follow the ever-shifting "continuity" (I'm sorry--I had to stop there and laugh bitterly for a moment) in comics.

In terms of Winter Soldier: Well, I was glad not to see it filled with every character from the other movies. I thought Black Widow and Falcon were plenty.
There was also a fairly plausable "you can't trust anyone" element to that story.
It is bad storytelling to simply say "Call in your powerful friends."
I've had my lifetime's fill of "Jossisms" so I'm not missing any of that. I can also pass on the most overt gags (like Hulk punching Thor in the first movie). Hulk smashing Loki like a Rag doll--that was more to my liking.

Christopher Marlowe: There was very little about Ultron that I liked. Vision on the other hand (who I traditionally am not a fan of) was surprisingly entertaining.
I expect a full cast in Avengers--not in Iron Man or Thor, or Cap movies. Although some crossover is fine. Unfortunately, I think you're right, and it is gonna all bleed together.

ShadowQuest--Well, the horses are running two races in May and one in June, so you'd think if they could run two races in one month they would certainly be recovered enough to run one race in one month. I'd also think horses running in one month would be recovered enough to run again the next so there'd be no advantage to a horse having not run the previous two races. But I don't know anything about horses, so the real question is. . .why do the people who DO know about horses not schedule the races to give the horses sufficient time to recover? Then it wouldn't matter which horse ran which race when.
