Re: Media previews

Galadriel is way too short.

Re: Trump Espionage and Obstruction Investigation

Much more competent reply brief filed jointly on behalf of all of the media interveners.

Re: Trump Espionage and Obstruction Investigation

From Judicial Watch's reply brief to the DoJ opposition to unsealing the affadavit: The public interest in the contents of the affidavit cannot be understated. The secrecy surrounding the search warrant, and the affidavit that led to its issuance, has caused the nation to convulse with intrigue and ...

Re: Lord of the Rings series!?

I don't know anything about this Star Wars show. Are you just referring to the coincidence of the name, or do they genuinely make a reference to The Land of Gift?

Re: Media previews

I get the same feeling. Even if I hate it (assuming that I see it).

Re: Media previews

I've seen a couple of raving twitter reports. Of course, that is almost always the case, but I have little doubt that the show will be raging success. And all joking and blustering aside, it is far more important that they make a show that is intelligible and interesting to someone who has never rea...

Re: Media previews

If you compare that map to the "famous map of Mordor" closely, you can see that it is quite different. That's a little too smarmy, even for a snob like you. ;) It's Mordor, and that's the Sea of Rhun. Differences in detail, in a map, are a completely different thing than major geographica...

Re: 2022 U.S. Congressional (and Other) Elections

Based on large part on that poll (probably), 538 has moved the odds in that race from 67-33 in favor of Johnson to 61-39. That would be a huge pickup for the Democrats. The 538 overall odds keep inching into the Democrats favor. They now give the Dems a 63% chance of holding the Senate, and a 22% ch...

I'd rather keep my expectations low and cynical and be pleasantly surprised to be wrong, then the alternative.

Re: Media previews

I don't think you can count on anything being necessarily true to what Tolkien wrote. That is not to say that there won't be things that are, but there will also things that will not be, including geographcial features. It occurs to me that actually it is likely that in some ways the show will becom...

Re: Media previews

The room for doubt is that they are moving things around to suit their own purposes. Until I hear it stated "this is Mordor" I will not be convinced, either way.
