Out of the Blue

I Love Coffee, but I Gave It Up for MudWtr. Don’t Make My Mistake (thanks Neutronbeam). Holy cow, that was painful to read. I'm not a big fan of mushrooms to start with, so this holds that much less appeal for me than for most. I suspect these 'shrooms may be hallucinogenic too, as the end of the article includes a recommendation for decaffeinated coffee. I hope the author eventually makes a full recovery.

Trippy Round-up
Thanks Ant and Neutronbeam.

Glad they managed to get that drone footage declassified, and show the world what a bunch of lying shits the Russians are. I suspect that the Russian ambassador is being called to the state department again to be given a copy of the video personally.

That was about as reckless a maneuver as you can get. I doubt the pilot intended to hit the drone, otherwise why dump the fuel in front of it, and no pilot wants to risk ingesting debris into his engine, but I guarantee you if that Russian fighter had crashed, the Russians would be blaming us for shooting it down.

I agree that Willow left a lot to be desired, and it's no surprise it got canceled. That said, they need to make a Boorman spinoff.

Which I am enjoying more than the books. The Crow duology was good, but the original trilogy was a slog to get through. The show is much better, especially since they integrated the Crows into the main story in season one and now we're getting the Six of Crows storyline as the B story in season 2.

Warwick Davis in his own show was great. In Willow, it’s like a school play when he speaks his lines as if he’s reading from a teleprompt it’s incredibly unnatural. I stopped half way through episode 2 specifically because Warwick is SO bad.

Iger has canned a ton of Disney productions that were not performing. All upcoming Star Wars movies have been shelved.

(We're not getting 6 movies in a year again) The Marvels is again having reshoots. He is also pushing to get Depp back in Pirates. Willow was a shitfest that neither matches the tone nor flavor of the original movie. The movie is one of my favorites. I couldn't watch past episode 3 of the show. (or 2, I forget.) I don't know why nobody can do any sort of good sequel to the movie. Lucas and Claremont (of X-Men fame) tried in the 90s with a book trilogy that was terrible as well.

i couldn't get past the first episode. holy shit what a schlock fest. they did the thing i hate the absolute most about modern fiction - turn into YA garbage. young adult oriented, stupid 20somethings having stupid 20something problems WB kinda show. they backburnered all the magic and the wonder to try to capitalize on, what, the percy jackson craze?

As for decaf, is this same chemical used in the process?

Mudwtr is really trying to hitch onto The Last of Us popularity.

According to the company’s PR material, it has chosen each of these shrooms for a specific benefit: chaga for energy, reishi for immunity, cordyceps for physical performance, and lion’s mane for mental performance.

I never understood decaffeinated coffee. I mean, why bother? I like my coffee like I like my women: Strong, black, and more than happy to kick my ass at 5 in the morning!

Yeah, it's like alcohol free beer. Well, if there's no alcohol...I'll just have a soda instead.

I never understood how Jennifer Aniston never got an Oscar for that movie?

I finally got around to watching Willow about a week or so ago and am very glad they cancelled it. Was expecting more Willow and got Buffy the Vampire Slayer (the movie).

Not sure what they spent on Willow, but it ended up having the look and feel of something like Xena rather than anything modern. Oh, and Warwick Davis is shit actor, just really bad. His continual casting in things is baffling to me.

Meanwhile at Apple+ I hear they insanely renewed Invasion, after flushing something like $200m down the toilet on the first season.
