I agree. Just look at the number of people who still believe in voting despicable morons into power and then feeling honour bound to do as they say...

Trump, and his supporters, are a disgrace to humanity, and no amount of supposed telling-it-like-it-is changes that.

 Have you spoken to all of the millions of Trump supporters? do you know them personally? I'm no Trump supporter, but I wouldn't go as far as describing them collectively as a disgrace to humanity. Try not being so dogmatic, speak to people, try to understand other peoples views, and what has led them to adhere to those views. Generalising... I thought we were passed that

I'm not generalising, I'm being very specific: deliberately and knowingly supporting a head of state who conducts himself in the manner that Trump does means that person brings (additional) shame on our species. It is disgraceful to listen to the shit that flows out of that dangerous baboon and say "yay Trump, telling the hard truths, have my vote": that goes for anyone that is even slightly aware of themselves and the world around them.

I fully appreciate the levels of ignorance, hardship and social conditioning that may bring an individual to that point,  but it in no way diminishes the disgrace. People do stupid things for all sorts of understandable reasons: it doesn't mean the aren't stupid.

That was good and fun episode tonight. Dark and nice with 10 mins early twist.

I've got the original progs, the Eagle reprint, selected 'Best of 2000AD monthly' reprints, Titan reprints, the black and silver Titan reprint and couldn't really justify getting it all again

Not the kind of casual fan this forum normally attracts - buck up boyo!

I like the sound of this Nemesis 'monograph', not a bad idea for the floppy.

If you're happy to support a man who thinks neo-nazis are "good people" and endorses an alleged paedophile for the US Senate, I don't much care what led you to adopt that position.

Warm Bodies  I definitely enjoy this one more than Deadheads.  It's really soppy.  Really soppy.  The cure is love!  It's quite well made, though.  The inner dialogue adds a lot.  We actually watch the relationship develop over time and that's the real crux of the story.  The zombie context wraps around it nicely and seems to give some weight to soppy nature of the film.  It has some interesting ideas and despite not exactly being an original concept on it's release, certainly feels like something fresh.  I had a blast watching this for the second time and I'd probably have to rate it as one of my favourite zombie based pieces of media.
