What have you learned from Making a Murderer on Netflix?

That our justice system is so messed up and I don’t ever want to step foot in Wisconsin again.

I haven’t watched it yet, but I’ve learned from my friend’s status updates that apparently this is the greatest thing since Serial.

I always try to keep an open mind and want to hear both sides of the story. With that said, and only hearing one side of the story, I have learned not to fuck with the police…because they will frame your ass for murder!

Well, I already knew the Criminal Justice system was flawed, and I don’t know if Steven Avery is guilty, so it just left me aggravated. HOWEVER, I was really impressed with how many people read about the evidence that wasn’t presented and tried to look at both sides, rather than take the documentary at face value. Progress, people! Progress! Now if only people would apply the same R&A to political candidates….

Do you think Mayor Rahm Emanuel will get a recall vote?

Kim K.

No way. If it does, I will be shocked.

Noooooope

Angelo B.

It’s very possible. A lot of people are still very fired up, and it would seem easy enough to recall him if given the opportunity.

I think the only way that Rahm is going to leave that office is if he is dragged kicking and screaming while knocking furniture over and kicking people. Nothing is going to unseat that man short of a miracle. But I do hope so.

Are you surprised that Uber had a surcharge of 9.0X on NYE?


Kim P

Kim K.

Um. No. Hello? That happens every year. This is why you just stay home or go somewhere you can walk to.


Ashley B.

Ashley B.

Noooooope. Honestly though, who would be?

Angelo B.

Angelo B.

Nope…I’m pretty sure last year it went into the double digits. I’m also pretty sure LYFT caps their surcharge at 400% so that should be something to look into next year. Happy New Year!

Molly K.

Molly K.

Nope. I’m not. Uber sucks. That’s why you should use LYFT! Use code MOLLY667314 to get 5 Free Rides up to $10 each! (Sorry. Shameless plug.)

Have you been awoken by The Force yet?


Kim P

Kim K.

Yes. Yes, I have. I want to be like Rey when I grow up.


Ashley B.

Yuuuuuup. I like this new Star Wars because of the similarities to the original trilogy. It lives up to the hype, gives us what we want, and washes the bad taste of Eps I-III out of our mouths. Let’s be real, Star Wars was never high art so expecting that even of this movie is silly. But it is a cultural touchstone and a special piece of nerditry. And, seeing Rey and Finn on their screens is going to mean a lot to a ton of little boys and girls.


Angelo B.

Angelo B.

Yes I have! And is it any surprise that I chose the dark side?!

Molly K.

Molly K.

Pssssh only in 3D! It hasn’t converted me to being a superfan, but I did really enjoy it, especially considering I have not seen any of the other Star Wars films. I’m always open to new nerd habits, so let’s see where this one goes.
