    I saw that story in the news. Amazing!
    I really wanted to hear more about the guy who had collected all those toys. All the coverage just focused on the people selling, or the auction house.
    If he'd sold his collection he could have had an amazing retirement.

    As I'm really enjoying The Mandalorian, I guess I'm no longer sick of Star Wars? I best stop posting here...

    Mandalorian s02e03
    Have to say, i found Starbuck's team jumping around like mighty morphin power rangers a bit odd. Its still a fun show but i dont think im digging it as much as the first season.

    I really liked that episode. I enjoyed the treachery of the Squidheads/Quarren.
    There's a shot where the Mandolorians first get on board the imperial vessel and start to walk down the corridor and the whole thing looked like a Destinies Child video for a split second. That was the only bit I found contentious.

    I completely turned around on S02. Now I'm loving it.

    I thought this was well done ...

    I’m not really familiar with Bill Burr’s material/schtick but people seem to love him... seems like he's just a cross between Louis CK and Joe Rogan. But The only Joe Rogan I found funny was during his ‘News Radio’ days. He’s like a flat earther conspiracy wacko now right?

    Anyways, back to Bill Burr- he was ok in Mandalorian, but I heard him go off on my hometown once, so he can go fuck himself.

    Fair enough, but he shits on most places he visits - thats his job. Its slightly surreal being a long time Burr fan and now seeing him acting in the Star Wars universe!

    As for Joe Rogan, he's not as bad as he used to be with the conspiracies, but yeah, he can be a bit OTT. He's more of a health and mental optimization obsessive nowadays.

    Hope the season finale is ~an hour long. Past few have been less than 30 minutes.

    yeah, but I’m from Philadelphia. And as much as I hate drunken Philadelphians and the reputation the city has, you have to be prepared for the reception you may receive if you choose to perform there. and you don’t shit talk our sports teams... even though we do it ourselves regularly.

    I don’t hate the guy, like I said I don’t know his material (I’m more of a Tina Fey/Conan O’Brien/Upright Citizens Brigade style of comedy fan) but you don’t come to my hometown and shit talk it for the duration of your act.
