    New edition of 'Huck Finn' -- censored or sensitive?

    New Edition of 'Huckleberry Finn' to lose the N-word. I thought I'd post this article for anybody interested to read and discuss. I won't offer my feelings on it directly, though anybody who knows me even vaguely probably has a good idea as to what my opinion is on the subject. A general...

    Dexter: Season 5

    We're a little under two weeks away from the beginning of the fifth season of Showtime's Dexter, and I'm curious to know: If you watch the show, what are your predictions? For those of you who are caught up through season four, but haven't seen the preview of season five, a teaser can be found...

    The Dresden Files - "Changes"

    Is anybody out there a follower of The Dresden Files, a series of modern noir-fantasy books by Jim Butcher? If so, I'm curious to discuss the ending of Butcher's most recent novel, Changes. With the ending, Butcher threw a wrench into his usual formulas and possibly into the future of the...

    James Cameron's Avatar - Your take?

    I'd like to know how many people went to see this film. I finally got a chance to attend last night and came out with my own very strong opinion about what I thought about it. I'm curious to know -- has anybody seen Avatar, and if so, what did you think of it? What did you think it did well...

    Modern Warfare 2: Terrorist Controversy

    I am choosing not to put this in the "Computers and Games" section, because I believe this topic transcends those brackets and requires more varied input even from those who aren't gamers. Just this week, the long-awaited sequel to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare was released. While the majority...

    Hell's Kitchen - Danny or Paula?

    So, what do you think, guys? Gordon Ramsay threw a piss into our week by extending the finale out one more week, so as of next week, we'll see who wins? Who do you think? Let us know why!

    If you went to see X-Men Origins: Wolverine...

    I'm so sorry that your time was wasted. (If you don't like cuss-words, go to another pansy thread.) Horrible things happen in peoples' lives, and in mine, I've been fortunate, but today, something awful truly did happen -- I went to see X-Men Origins: Wolverine. When the movie was said and...

    FarCry 2

    So, has anyone played it? I won't go into a huge "omg this is why this game rocks" spiel, because frankly, I don't have the energy for it! I'm curious to know who has played it, though, and what they think about it. I just recently picked it up, and while I was skeptical at first, I've been...

    Equus, anyone?

    So, I'm not sure how much discussion it can encourage, but I thought it was mighty time to share the splendid experience I had this weekend. Several months ago, my mother purchased me the most awesomely outstanding gift for a birthday anyone could ask for. She had gone online and had gotten...

    New Xbox Experience - *explicit*

    I'd rather have a panda bear jack me off with a glove covered in broken glass. So, I go home on the 19th after a long day of work and class, and I think, "Hey, I'm going to play a little bit of Call of Duty: World at War and kill some zombies before I hit the bed," right? So I turn it on, and...

    Converse with the past

    Imagine this: You've been selected -- out of the many thousands upon thousands of candidates -- to be the first person to go off on a voyage in time! It's a rather high responsibility, of course -- you'll be representing your kin and your country -- but there's so much to learn and so much to...

    Broadway Shows

    This thread is for everybody who has experienced a Broadway show -- or any other outstanding theatrical performance, for that matter -- that they would like to share! The main reason for starting this thread is because I myself had an outstanding theater experience a few weeks ago. I got the...

    John Adams

    Did any of you guys get a chance to watch the first two parts of this HBO miniseries? I just had the privilege of watching the premiere, and I can easily say that I was blown away with just how engaging and riveting it was. I look forward to the third installment. Paul Giamatti (who a lot of...

    Gone for a week!

    Oy, punks! Just a quick note to let you all know that I'm gone for a week -- heading up to New York to see some good shows, eat some awesome food, and see some historical sights! Don't fight, don't bicker, and for God's sake, don't drink up all of the alcohol while gone, and leave me a slice...
