Re: “"Boardwalk Empire," Season 2 Finale

Jimmy spent the entirety of the episode attempting to settle debts and close things off. He gave Chalky more money than he'd asked for to distribute to the families of the murdered men, brought him the 3 klansmen (which he'd refused to do earlier), tried to do what he could to make things with Nucky "as right as they can be" (knowing full well that Nuck would never forgive him), tears up the will that would keep his son from inheriting the Commodore's wealth, tells his son where to go to get away from Gillian, gives his son his dog tags, makes Richard promise that he'd find a way to come back from the war, and then goes out unarmed to meet with Nucky and Manny. These are the actions of a man who knows his time is up, and that there's nowhere else for him to go but out.

Re: “"Boardwalk Empire," Season 2, Episode 9

Wireless was a novelty, but a rapidly-accepted one. By 1922 over a million sets were in use, so it's not unlikely that a hospital would have one in mid-'21.

Re: “Plaza Theatre seeks new owners but won't close

Because studios are stupid. The costs for storing 35mm film prints for archival are enormous, but it's EXTREMELY short-sighted to trust the digital medium exclusively as a storage solution for their libraries. Someone forgets to do a backup or something, and then BLAM, everything's gone.

I hate like hell that Johnny and Gayle are looking for new owners. The Plaza is like a home away from home for me, and if it weren't for finances I'd be there twice a week easy.

Re: “Dragon*Con’s new policy: Buy a ticket or you’re not allowed inside

Well, it's great that D*C has upgraded the system they've had in place since it started in '87. Kinda sad that it took them so many years to acknowledge that there was a problem with flipping through three-ring binders to pull up pre-reg info (while TicketMaster buyers could waltz in and out with barely a wait), but there you go. I used to go to D*C regularly from year one through the mid-90s, and have been going back since returning to Atlanta, but the last two years (incredible wait times in line, horribly mis-organized lineups for panels, etc.) soured me on pre-registering this year.

But like Antler says, all the cools folks will be at Drive-Invasion. Fewer kilts, though, but I've always regarded that as a plus.

Instead, you can spend that 3 hours standing in a line outside the Marriott for the privilege of picking up your badge. It's a bargain at thrice the price.
