Even though I haven't seen the movies, I didn't really agree with firing him in the first place.

It was right-wing Trumptrainee Twitter trolls like Mike Cernovich that dug up the tweets in the first place. And these guys don't so much drudge this stuff up because they have a problem with it, but rather because they dislike right-wingers like Trump being taken to task for being LITERAL SEX OFFENDERS, so in an infantile fashion, they find examples of left-wingers making paedophilia jokes (not even seriously endorsing paedophilia, but simply making off-colour and crude jokes about the topic) so that they can go, "SEE, THE LEFT DOES IT TOO! WHY DON'T THEY GET PUNISHED," and the left falls for it every time.

They also tried to do it with Sam Seder, and got him fired from MSNBC for making jokes about Roman Polanski's crimes, even though the purpose of the joke was to ridicule Roman Polanski and make the point that Polanski being a good filmmaker doesn't erase the fact that he's a child abuser.

MSNBC, being dumb, fired him anyway, and only hired him back when they realized that they would get no political points for firing him, because everybody realized how dumb firing him was.

Also, because I'm not a pearl-clutcher who thinks certain topics a should arbitrarily be off-limits from being addressed by comedy, I don't think that making blue jokes about sensitive topics is inherently morally wrong, much less morally equivalent to doing the kind of shit Roy Moore or Donald Trump have done. I appreciate that the left wants to hold its own to task to avoid being hypocrites, and we shouldn't protect people just because they are on "our side," but sometimes in pursuing respectability politics and purity politics, people on the left fall on their swords calling out people for the stupidest shit, even though the right NEVER does this.

But I am kinda legit disappointed about his take on Suicide Squad potentially not happening now, because it was supposed to be a clean break from the Ayer film rather than an actual sequel, and rumour had it that it was going to be more in line with the Ostrander comics material. I was actually cautiously optimistic about it.

Hopefully the Disney contract isn't exclusive, and he can do both. Or they get another person to do a Suicide Squad film that isn't Ayer's "Hot Topic Harley & Friends" movie.

Ah, cool.

Still annoyed about the Birds of Prey movie, though. I guess that's going to be the next "Harley & Pals" movie because they are sticking the character into that, even though she's not even a member of the Birds of Prey.

Casuals ruined Harley Quinn forever.

As a long-term fan of graphic novels, how necessary do you find all the movies?

I understand that a poor adaptation of a favorite work doesn't detract from the source material in any real sense, but am curious to know if you'd just as happily do without them altogether or whether having them brought to life in film is (at least potentially) some sort of bonus.

Given how that ended up coming off as borderline self-answering, I guess I would offer that I'd probably rather James Franco did not try to render every second book I've read in celluloid.

Aside from my girlfriend, who was with me at the time, you guys are the first to know.

Take that to mean what you will.

Yeah. I mean, he's been slowly showing his age more and more. Had arthritis in his hips, slept a lot but still ate and wagged and generally seemed happy. Went to bed like normal last night. My girlfriend left the apartment an hour before I got up, said he looked ok when she left. I woke up and heard him groaning a lot and found he had shit and pissed all over his bed and couldn't get himself up. I tried taking him outside but he just kept slumping over. Rushed to the vet, who said it could be a tumor but the only way to know was a biopsy. I already knew what I had to do and did it. And goddammit was it fucking hard.

Three months shy of his 17th birthday. I got him when I was 18. I am now 34.

wow, what a good doggo

I'm glad you got to spend so many years with him. You made the right choice, as hard as it is.

My mom's fiancé's dog went the same way just a few months ago. he was older but seemingly healthy, then one day a tumor just caused him to not be able to stand

He really was a good boy. The best. Saw me through many hard times.

As crappy as the last few hours of his life were, I am at least glad he didn't have to suffer too long. He went out with his head and neck cradled in my arm, snoring and groaning pleasurably (from the anesthestic). I think all things considered, he was very lucky to go the way he did.

Definitely up there. He was a Lhasa Apso, and smaller dogs usually live longer. He was about 93 in human years according to the age chart at the vet. I am grateful for how much time I got with him.

He could get pretty long, but I usually kept him pretty trim. Otherwise, he would mat up. And he didn't much cotton to being brushed.

He was also kinda atypical of his breed. 30 lbs at his heaviest, and about twice as long/tall as the standard Lhasa. He was mostly black with white around his legs and belly. I'll post pics at some point in the near future.

He could be both incredibly stubborn and relentlessly affectionate when he wanted to.

Sounds like a character.
It would be nice to see pics. What was his name?
