Re: Aaand, In Other News...

All those cars and trucks sitting in traffic with engines running. I understand what they're protesting but the execution is fucking stupid. About the cathedral. If you think of all the similar building around Europe that got leveled during WW2 that got restored pretty quickly. It's also safe to as...

Re: The travel thread

Some of it, but not all, apparently.

Well, except for the fact that it's only the roof that was damaged, and it's going to be restored.

Anyone who's been there (not I), I'd say your goodbyes while you can. I think it's over, Johnny.

Re: The travel thread

Stay at the Adlon for the history, and then just give a few handjobs by the Hauptbahnhof to pay for food. It'll be worth it, I'm sure. But srsly, my mates and I do most of our trips staying at hostels - but the ones that provide a per-group room, which are still very cheap. This exists in Berlin, bu...

Re: General Film News

What AE said. There was already an accepted train of chronology both before and after EpVI when the prequels came out - they fucked with the pre-films story but no one was fussed with that provided we got to see the New Republic and maybe Thrawn or- NOPE. There's "this wasn't what I hoped for" in te...

Misread this as "The time-travel thread".

On a happier note, I too have been to and loved Berlin. I was in the running to move there for work last year, but it came to nought in the end.

Re: Currently Reading

TN&TD was very good (albeit with an odd, abrupt ending). As I have no money for more books, I am doing a bit of re-reading until my birthday. Currently, returning to enjoy Johnny Panic and The Bible of Dreams , a short-story compilation by Sylvia Plath. I have a second-edition printed in the '70s, b...

Re: General Film News

JJ Abrams is giving a big FUCK YOU to Rian Johnson and I would not be surprised in the least if everything in The Last Jedi was ditched. Johnson did not reach out to Abrams so Abrams most likely stuck to his trilogy outline and reworked Palpatine as Snoke and Ray is a Skywalker, reversing the "lie"...
