      It seems to be working. i just embed a song on the What Are You Listening To? thread

      Yeah, in my haste to place extra security on the site I see that I had redundancies in providers.

      It's working now. I am able to post.

  2. RIP Sandy Ratcliff, one of the best of all time on Eastenders. I'll always love Sue Osman.

  3. That Honest Trailer on Spiderverse is one of the unfunniest things I've seen since Two Broke Girls. What a disappointment. 

  4. RIP Vonda McIntyre.

      In that case, I'll just put this here for my own amusement: https://twitter.com/JOE_co_uk/status/1110965189409681408

      The software was updated recently, and I thought it would fix a bug that everyone has been discussing. However, it did not as it was an unrelated fix that Invision applied to the PM system. Until I'm able to get Invision to provide a further update, or until I can fix it myself, you can still view, respond anything you so desire with PMs by clicking on the envelope icon and then clicking the link that says "Go to Inbox." That brings you to all your PMs and you can start, respond, delete or archive your PMs from there. The issue at hand is just you can't click on the link that shows you your most recent conversations (the ones shown when clicking on the envelope) as it re-directs to a nonexistent (dead) link.

  6. Is anyone else no longer able to search properly on Youtube (like if I want to look at items uploaded in the last week, or last month, etc.)?

      I've been having the same problem...I looked it up and it seems to be an issue they just haven't fixed yet 😕

  7. It's taken me about 3 years to realize Lin Manuel Miranda isn't gay.

      It took me 3 minutes into Mary Poppins Returns for me to realize he sucks off the stage.

  8. Happy Ryan's Hope Day everyone.

  9. Every once in a while I think about changing my avi, then I get the sudden feeling that 1) I will be jeopardizing the Bobby and Shelly reunion I need and 2) I will cause Twin Peaks to never be back on the air. So I don't.

      Does this mean that if I keep up my avatar of Tonya Pinkins and Tamara Tunie, I'll get to see them together in something in the near future?

      I think everyone should keep their avatars exactly the same so that I can continue to quickly and conveniently identify people without reading user names.

  10. Watching ODAAT...Justina Machado is an incredible actress and she's doing some of the best sitcom work I've seen...probably ever, but it tells you something about Bonnie Franklin's presence that too often I still accidentally call Penelope "Ann."

      I am getting to that tonight. Trying to speed through Seasons 2 and 3 faster than I usually would with shows I enjoy and like to savor, bc I know Netflix has taken to closely monitoring viewer dropoff and binge rate to determine renewals. (I don't think that's always a great metric, but whatever)

    3. DRW50

      DRW50

      Yeah I'm trying to watch season 3 for that reason, even though normally I wouldn't have by now. I think I've watched 5 episodes over the last two days.

    4. Juliajms

      Juliajms

      I just leave my computer running overnight and then watch for real when I have the time. Maybe Netflix can tell I'm doing that though. Hopefully not.

  11. I see that people are working themselves up into a rage about Ghostbusters yet again. I'd rather see someone cough up phlegm for half an hour than be told yet again about the martyrdom of Paul Feig and how every single part of Ghostbusters is terrible but his genius work.

    1. Bright Eyes

      Bright Eyes

      Paul Feig is one of those people i have a pet peeve about. People behind the camera should let the work speak for itself, but he's one of those types that so desperately wants to be a "star." It's pathetic. It was always so annoying when he force himself all over the Joel Mchale/The Soup revival show. 

    2. DRW50

      DRW50

      His decision to put himself as the face of his Ghostbusters, and go along with the idea that anyone who didn't want to see it hated women, was one of the reasons the whole thing was such a bonfire. At least he did defend Jason Reitman today.

    3. Vee

      Vee

      It was a shockingly stupid decision with the 2016 film. What's even more shocking is that after all that and his plummeting in my estimation bc of that mess, Feig's A Simple Favor is IMO one of the best sleeper films of last year and will be a cult flick for years to come.

  12. RIP Albert Finney. Two for the Road will always have a place in my heart.

      The last thing I saw him in was Before The Devil Knows You're Dead with Phillip Hoffman.  It was great!

      Thanks. Sounds like the earlier seasons were better.

      Don't get me wrong, MSW is watchable from the first episode to the last, largely because Jessica Fletcher and Angela Lansbury remain so consistent.  However, the first seven years are particularly good, because they possess a folksy charm that's largely absent in the sleeker, more sophisticated latter years.

    4. Soaplovers

      I do agree with Khan, MSW is watchable from start to finish.. but there is a definite switch that happened in the early 90s that turned the show from a charming Miss Marples in Cabot Cove to a more sleek mystery show.

       

      Cabot Cove was a character onto itself.. and Eve Simpson was one of the more memorable ones that survived into the later version of the show... and it was due to Julie Adam's take on the character...imho

  13. Why am I not surprised Netflix is painting a boy subjecting another boy to homophobic abuse as loving and romantic. There continues to be a very disturbing narrative going on with Netflix's "youth" shows.

      I know there are abusive relationships in TV with men and women, but I do think they at least have to explain themselves more or can be called out. Stuff like this basically tells viewers that it's just what happens with two men. It bothers me more than anything because a lot of young people love these shows, like that suicide show Netflix does.

    3. Juliajms

      You're right Carl, especially because of the differences in the amount of representation between straight and gay couples.  I remember when Glee did a much lighter version of this with Kurt and that kid who was bullying him.  The kid kissed him after calling tormenting him for ages.  I can't even put my finger on why it's so offensive, but if it were my son I'd want him to tell the other person to piss off.  It's like it somehow put the obligation on the victim to sympathize with the bully because they can't handle coming out and their feelings of attraction. No thank you.

    4. Soaplovers

      9 1/2 Weeks is the best representation of emotional abuse that wasn't disguised as a love story.. but a story on how the main character gets the strength and confidence to break free and love oneself.  Since than, it seems like bullying/abuse in physical and/or emotional ways seem to be the backbone for love stories nowadays.

  14. Watched the Oscar announcement out of boring (boring noms too). Kumail Nanjiani is so cute, isn't he? I was going to watch The Big Sick until I saw that it was from the wretched Judd Apatow.

      He's going to be doing a RomCom with Issa Rae so hopefully that'll be worth watching.

      Oh good. I hope it does well.

  15. I'm glad that Don Cheadle shut down Kathy Griffin's manic ravings. After the homophobic winking and nodding she indulged in last year my sympathy is pretty much gone.

      I just don't think it was necessary to call him an "heiress," with what that implies. I apologize if it seemed to suggest more.

      I can see how that comment could be taken to be homophobic or at least condescending. She probably felt as if her status as being popular with gay men would allow her to get by saying that.

    4. Graham

      Thanks, DRW50. Yep, that is feminizing him as an insult. I know there is serious bad blood between the two but that is sad she said something like that.

  16. I'm glad The Rock cares so much about freedom of speech...

     

  17. Ellen Degeneres makes me sick.

      I haven't cared for her in a very long time, and I never bought the whole "She's so cool bc she dances!" shtick. Most daytime talk show hosts these days are so hard to like.

    3. Soapsuds

      Not happy that Ellen got involved in it. She should've stayed away from the controversy. That said can't hate on her since she donated a big check to a city close by where I live to rebuild after the horrible hurricane that hit us a year ago. The city mayor even appeared on Ellen to receive the check....considering how bad the devastation was that money will help a lot. 

    4. NothinButAttitude

      NothinButAttitude

      I feel like Ellen shouldn't've conducted an interview with Kevin at all. It totally did a disservice of to us Black LBGTQ, who already get the shaft from our White counterparts. And I've never seen it for Kevin. Never have, never will. He's always been an unfunny, overrated troll.

  18. I haven't watched the new Black Mirror but sad to see that the self-loathing bitch brigade who drove that Stranger Things girl off Twitter have now done the same to another actor.

  19. RIP Super Dave. So many childhood memories of all the fun and craziness.

  20. Happy New Year's everyone. May 2019 be the year we need.

  21. I found out that Mamma Mia 2 does in fact have a deleted scene for my favorite ABBA song, "I Wonder." I therefore retroactively declare 2018 a wonderful year. 

  22. The top third of the board has blown up in size for me, but that won't stop me from wishing everyone a Merry Christmas.

      Merry Christmas to all! And yes, these ads are crazy.

    4. DramatistDreamer

      DramatistDreamer

      I don't see ads. 

      It's the banners at the left side that have practically tripled in size.   

      In Chrome, the size of the banners are huge while in Firefox, the fonts are the size they've always been, which has somehow always been too small for my screen size, which is why I have always used Chrome.

  23. Finally watched Mamma Mia 2. Too long and relies a bit too much on the charms of Lily James, but it was better than I thought it would be. The last 20-25 minutes are actually pretty moving, and Amanda Seyfried finally gets the chance to act she never got in the first one. It was also nice to hear some of the lesser-known ABBA numbers, even if many of my favorite songs were still not used ("Move On," "Should I Laugh Or Cry," "I Wonder," etc.) 

  24. RIP Nancy Wilson.
