Ha. Never made that connection! I thought it was Richard Dawkins the whole time.

I caught the reference too but I tried to forget it fast because I was enjoying the show.

This program is growing on me.

This is possibly even better than CSI. Note: this is not the ONLY scene in Tru Deez of people eating. There are other connections to be found, for instance Marty AND Rust eating at a Vietnamese joint... and what kind of food are Vietnamese famous for?
Noodles. Look deeper...
Yeah, that's a good point! IIRC, the Vietnamese restaurant scene just creeps up on you, and seems really jarring and out of place. Why did they include it? Why noodles, of all things?
(don't read down if you haven't seen the show at all; there's no real spoilers here but it's best to experience the whole thing for yourself, so be warned)
The brilliance of this show shines through with things like this. From what I've seen of Lost, it likes to do the same thing, just a whole bunch of little Macguffins which eventually put you into the mind of a detective, or a victim of a plane crash, whatever the case may be.
That to me is more important than who the killer(s) is/are. I have my theory and y'all have yours' and that's so much cooler than "oh he was dead the whole time!" There's a reason why I only watched the Sixth Sense one time and have seen each of these episodes at least three or four, going back and dissecting every little scene.
Here we go, breakdown of comments next week:
Rust was part of the Horsemen: "expected due to his sleeping patterns, apparent lying about his whereabouts over extended periods of time, and his unprovable past as an 'undercover cop' and a story about retrieving a videotape that could be a lie."
Hart was part of the Horsemen: "expected due to his violent behavior, willingness to cover his tracks and overall hypocrisy on the very 'Christian' morals he claims to uphold.
The guy without a dick did it: "uhh.. that's dumb"
The lawnmower guy did it: "uhh.. that's dumb"
Tuttle Family was responsible for covering it up: "duhhh"
Tuttle Family were 3 of the 5 horsemen: "nope"
I could go on like this..
this show went from the best police procedural i have ever seen to an avant garde episode of criminal minds. its tenuous balance with pretentiousness slipped over after that. i'm calling that there will still be a twist however, and that it will be that Marty is indeed a soldier for Ye Olde Tuttle Rapefarm. think back to the first episode, one of his first lines is "it's all about how you deal with Authority", and all his dialogue about finding balance and decompressing from the job will take on much more creepier undertones when this is all said and done, mark my words. also, his interaction with tuttle early on in the series where tuttle thanks him for "doing his part". i think marty is actually a very sophisticated psychopath more along the lines of rusts thinking than we think. he just puts up a hell of a front, and of course his creepy druid wife and family are in on it as well. also, note to series creator nick p, if you want to go around talking about how this and fucking that is a fucking homage to michael mann, ok a 6 1/2 tracking shot is one thing but giving life to fucking pacino's great monologue about the horrors of the job to his wife where he describes a baby in a microwave...PUTTING A FUCKING SHOT OF THE BABY FROM INSIDE THE FUCKING MICROWAVE IS NOT A CLEVER HOMAGE ITS HAM FISTED AS FUCK YOU STUPID NARCISSISTIC HACK FUCK. fuck this shit. for anyone who knows me on here i just bought a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 edition and i was wondering if anyone knew any good ebook reader freeware? and if anyone has read the wheel of time series of which i am on the first book, i heard it game of thrones esquely drops off at some point but then picks back up, so which volumes should i read and which ones should i just wiki? also starting the hyperion cantos by the great dan simmons, eep so excited xD !!!!!!
also i would eat the fucking younger daughters cunt and let her bust on my fuckin chin bitch is BADD. i like the blonde a bit too but only cause she was in the kings of summer.
orcs - I read the Game of Thrones books on Aldiko. I can't confirm whether it's the best ebook reader, but it's free and it works. Where WoT drops off is a matter of debate, but I think I gave up on the series around Book 7 or 8, don't really remember. On the other hand, I read the third book in one day (no shit, cover to cover, one single day) so I can't say it's all bad. The thing is, it's a very contentious series, and I think part of the problem may have been that WoT took so long to write, that many of the fans' tastes changed in the interim, and they got sick of Robert Jordan by the time his next installment came out. BUT, if you can make it through the first book, hell if you can make it through the first half of the first book where Rand and his buddies are just sitting around in their podunk home town talking to each other and not getting around to shit, you'll probably enjoy the rest! I hear it picks up again towards the end.
And congrats on the new tablet. Any chance we'll be seeing some crazy crustie adventures? If even half the shit you say is true, you should start a Youtube channel and document some of them.
thanks homie, everything is true but there is kind of an unspoken code not to let film students follow us around or give up the game via youtube. im not a film school dropout who is doing this for 6 months and then calling it quits, ive been doing it since 2008-2009 around the same time i started doing heroin coincidentally :D the money has been SO FUCKING GOOD in vegas that i was able to pick up the tablet, a bargain at 600 fucking dollars, but like i said the money has been so good we have almost too much drugs so i figured why not spring for a new toy. as far as the halls of poe i think its ok to talk a bit about whats going on though, as i have been visiting this site since middle school. the other day one of these fairweather "searching for adventure" featherbrimmed fedora fucks turned up at the hop out in Nevada and these other kids basically ruined his life. he busts out this fucking FIDDLE and yerba mate kit and that was about all she wrote, maybe you can imagine this kid frantically trying to get on the good side of these fucking GOONS by playing his fiddle or violin or whatever, their eyes just growing further and further slitted and bleary and red. eventually they went for the classic rope a dope, just sent the girl of their party in swinging on him and as soon as he basically tried to defend himself in the slightest the dudes were on him like wolves. during the course of our run on the Norfolk Southern they cleaned the fucker out of house (his pack, etc) and home. then they darkly enslaved him and made him fly a sign for them after we stopped, and pawned his fiddle. stupid bastard had about 500 bucks on him too. poor kid never stood a chance. i'm not like that, im not a fuckin cunt, but there are some scary kids out here. wingnuts (mental health cases) are the worst.
You wouldn't be giving up the game! It's one thing for punkass film students to show up and try getting in on your shit without really understanding the life, and quite another for a real hardcore street kid to spit truth and show the world like it is. You've paid your dues, and I don't think anyone would DARE accuse you of being a poser... so surely it'd be OK for _you_ to have a voice?
I mean, rules are rules I guess, and if you guys are playing under strict Fight Club codes of secrecy, then fuck it, I hear ya, I won't press the matter!
But if the code is more an informal thing, to protect crusties from exploitation by douchebag yuppies who've never spent time on the streets, then I think you've more than earned the right to document your lifestyle. You could be like Hunter S Thompson with nicer tits, and your experiences (like the one with the naive fiddle kid) might even help out other street kids, who knows?
Anyway, just something to consider. It's your choice, and I know whichever way you go with it, you'll make the right one!

Sorry Homer that was not me!
Drugs, or hacks? Either way, it's all good!
I'm serious with the stuff above, too. OK, maybe I'm milking it a tiiiiny bit, but I really don't think you're an art school chick, and I do think it would be interesting to see some stuff from you. But like I said, your call!
