    First Time / Long Time
  1. Wait, I think something is wrong with your keyboard. You meant to type "fantastic" and it substituted in "terrible"...? :-)
  2. Edward Louis Severson III is his birth name. His parents divorced when he was a small child, but his mom remarried and he was raised believing his step dad was his actual biological father. He went by "Edward Mueller" (step dad's last name) until his late teens and when his mom and step dad divorced and he learned the truth - that his "dad" wasn't his biological father. So from there he took his mom's maiden name and has been Eddie Vedder ever since!
  3. Oh absolutely, just thought it was amusing that you had called out not liking it at the exact moment I was listening to it. =)
  4. Everyone has different taste. I had never heard of that band before but I loved the song, and am listening to the corresponding album right now! The Veils - Total Depravity (2016)
  5. Absolutely. I don't know that we've ever seen other concrete confirmation that they know specifics about the Black Lodge stuff. I could be very wrong.
  6. I think they meant "one" as in "a portal" - not necessarily a woodsman. "You think there's a portal in there?" or whatever they call the junctions between Earth and that other place. That's how I interpreted it, anyway.
  7. Yep. Here they are on Amazon Prime Channels:
  8. My thoughts (and hopes) exactly!
  9. GORDON: Ah! The policeman's dream! Gordon Cole is. The. Best.
  10. Yep! She was sitting there sobbing next to the TV after the fly/face super combo. The weather report and ****Let's roll the dice... LOCAL NEWS!**** were on. It was all fresh in her mind, apparently.
  11. Small item. Candie's mention of the "version layer" is her attempt to name the meteorological phenomenon of the inversion layer. She was trying to repeat things that she heard on a TV weather forecast and doing it incorrectly, much like a small child repeating something their parents have said. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inversion_(meteorology) In meteorology, an inversion is a deviation from the normal change of an atmospheric property with altitude. It almost always refers to a "temperature inversion", i.e. an increase in temperature with height, or to the layer ("inversion layer") within which such an increase occurs.[1] An inversion can lead to pollution such as smog being trapped close to the ground, with possible adverse effects on health. An inversion can also suppress convection by acting as a "cap". If this cap is broken for any of several reasons, convection of any moisture present can then erupt into violent thunderstorms. Temperature inversion can notoriously result in freezing rain in cold climates. CANDIE: "We're in the version layer, that it's gonna be hot and smoggy tomorrow, and I told him we are so lucky to have air conditioning in our casino."
  12. Yes, that's true. I'm just saying that the general consensus on the web is "BadCoop and Diane are texting/working together!" but it's entirely possible that they are not. BadCoop has an IT infrastructure and is in communication with many different people. The BadCoop/Diane texts are demonstrably not direct communication between their phones. A third party could be relaying BadCoop's messages to Diane, and she could be replying to THEM instead of BadCoop. The third party and Diane could be working against BadCoop, not with him, and Diane's reply is a status report on this counter-BadCoop operation. That's all I meant by my timeline. A plausible theory that counters BadCoop/Diane collaboration.
  13. Thumbs up on this read. I'm with you here. Separately, something had been bugging me about the BadCoop / Diane texting interaction and it finally hit me when listening to the TPR episode. If Diane is communicating directly with BadCoop, then the texting timeline doesn't add up. Part 9 BadCoop arrives at the farm. CUT TO Diane on the FBI plane, where her phone is jammed. CUT BACK TO the farm. BadCoop uses a burner feature phone to send the "dinner table" text in all lower-case. Immediately after sending the text, that phone is shotgunned to bits. Time passes and we can easily assume that the FBI plane is still in the air for a decent amount of time. Certainly longer than the minute between BadCoop's text and the phone being destroyed. Halfway through the episode, Diane and the FBI gang arrive at the "fucking morgue!" in Buckhorn where Diane checks her phone and finally sees the text message, but it is in all caps. Part 10 In the hotel, Albert relays that Diane received the text "at 11:13 this morning" and "pinged off a cell tower in Philly" which Tammy traced back "to a server in Mexico." She replied to that text with "They have Hastings. He's going to take them to the site." So there's definitely a relay happening here. She couldn't have texted back directly to BadCoop, as his feature phone had been destroyed. The "server in Mexico" - whether it's run by BadCoop or a third party - is probably where the message was reformatted from lower- to upper-case. I don't know where this leads. Does BadCoop know that his messages are going to Diane? Who is Diane actually replying to (does she even know)? If the server admin is a third party, are they working for or against BadCoop? Perhaps, as Chris and Jake surmised, "Phillip Jeffries" is the intermediary and they are orchestrating things differently than we assume. The possibility certainly exists that Diane is NOT working with BadCoop, which is at odds with most of the internet's immediate reaction.
  14. I loved this episode. Albert and Connie's banter; Bobby's reaction to... well, everything; kicking Chad out of the conference room; the Detectives Fusco; Tim Roth's character slinging lingo; Matthew Lillard's amazing broken performance; Jerry Horne's duel with his not-foot. But the thing that brought a literal cheer to my lips was Ben Horne resisting temptation with Beverly. He's a Good Man now, that Ben.
