I sense a pattern. Plain white New Models are taking over Hot Wheels in 2019. – theLamleyGroup
Honestly 2019 has been a magical year for Hot Wheels New Models. I can’t remember a year where such a wide variety of models has been introduced. And on top of that, the amount of clean, stock looks with only front and rear decos. When the Lamley Award voting starts – sooner than you think – it will be a blast to put all these together and see how many clean models have been dropped this year. It’s been a lot.
But there is one group that can be separated from all. The plain white models...
It started with the Nissan 300ZX, then was followed by the Porsche 911, Tesla Model 3, and now the Mercedes-Benz A Class. Plain white with front and rear tampos.

Call Me By Your Name (2017)
Jed's thoughts: This movie is so pretentious I thought it had to be making fun of itself until I met people who took it seriously. In good news, both they and I managed to thoroughly enjoy it. It's a good lazy summer movie, the kind-of-story of a teenager and a grad student hooking up and comparing their intellectual dicks and lounging on various surfaces around Italy. And yes, someone does indeed fuck a peach.

4th Man Out (2015)
Jed's thoughts: If the last 30 seconds didn't do what they did, this would be one of my top ten favorite queer movies. It's about a dude who comes out as gay to his three best friends, who are somewhat terrible dudebros that learn to be less terrible over the course of the story. It's sweet and funny and facepalmy in an amusing way, and then the ending ruins it. There are 19 fics for this movie on AO3 and just about every single one is a fix-it fic. Never have I so desperately wanted to Kickstart the filming of an alternate ending to a movie.

Date and Switch (2014)
Jed's thoughts: Kinda Fourth Man Out meets Bill and Ted? Solid dialogue, good bro relationship, and lots of fun minor characters played by familiar faces, but I strongly disliked the straight main character and the casual ableism and racism were gross.

Akron (2015)
Jed's thoughts: Really really loved this movie about two teenagers meeting in college and striking up a relationship that gets a bit derailed when they realize one's mother killed the other one's brother in a car accident a decade earlier. I found the sweet awkward sincerity of the early stages of the relationship extremely realistic, and the emotional fallout all played out in ways that made sense and held my interest. The ending is happy without wrapping things up too neatly. Also, both families seem fully supportive of the main characters' sexuality, really no homophobia at all.

Angry Indian Goddesses (2015)
Jed's thoughts: I have mixed feelings about recommending this. I personally liked it a lot, but I wouldn't have if I hadn't thoroughly spoiled myself for the ending. It's about a group of women who meet up for several days to celebrate the engagement of one of them, and in that aspect it was lovely, with a lot of complicated and well-executed relationships between different characters. But there's also a theme of the difficulties and abuses they've variously faced from men, and the climax is focused on that in a way that was extremely disturbing to me, even knowing what was coming. Most of the movie gives the women agency and badass reactions to harassment, but the end in some ways doesn't, and while I do see why that choice was made, I can also see a lot of viewers feeling cheated and disappointed by it. So tread carefully, but if that doesn't scare you off, it is a very good movie.

2018 Mazda6 Ownership Review | Kelley Blue Book
We're spending 12 months with this Mazda6 reviewing the full ownership experience with ongoing updates.
Ferrari Portofino or Mazda6? It’s all relative
Price: $35,720 | Price yours
Current Odometer: 8,030 miles
Latest MPG: 25.52 mpg
Lifetime MPG: 25.7 mpg
Maintenance/Service Costs: $94.11
Days out of Service: 0
Last week I shot a video with the 591 hp 2019 Ferrari Portofino. Having driven it for three days, I’d become accustom to the heavy throttle pedal, the twitchy electronic powered steering and the horrific blind spots that made for tense freeway driving. When I had to swap the Ferrari with Kelley Blue Book’s Micah Muzio for his long-term 2018 Mazda Mazda6 I figured it was going to be a massive let down. Instead, I was pleasantly surprised.
The light gas pedal on the Mazda6 felt like a relief to my over-worked leg. The illusion that power comes easily in a supercar might be just that. You still have to work for it, and in a daily driving situation, I might prefer the ease of a lighter touch. The throttle still reacts quickly in our turbo Mazda6. No, thanks to a less elegant transmission and the lack of a turbo boost systems, the Mazda6 doesn’t eradicate turbo lag in the way the Ferrari does, but I was pleasantly surprised at how quick the Mazda6 responds.
Braking was frankly a relief in the Mazda6. Where the Ferrari’s stopping power is among the best with massive carbon ceramic stoppers you can see from the International Space Station, at slow speeds or in commuting situations the pedal feel is super sticky before it complies. Not so on the Mazda6. The grab of the calipers feels smooth and efficient. The brakes are confidently effective. Of course, I’m not going 145 miles an hour, and those Brembos sure are lovely when employed in that situation, but for freeway driving, bring on Mazda’s 11.7-inch vented front and 10.9-inch vented rear steel stoppers.

Anchor and Hope (2017)
Jed's thoughts: This is such a good movie about humans being human. I was never really tempted to judge whether I liked these characters or approved of their decisions--they're just people, living lives that seem both surreal and intimately real. It's about two women who live on a boat, one of whom wants to have a baby, and their goofy friend/potential sperm donor who visits them on the boat. The writing and acting is all phenomenal, it's frequently funny and just as frequently touching. I'm not tagging "happy ending" because it wouldn't be everyone's definition of one, but it's the kind of ambiguous ending that feels fulfilling and right for the story, not the kind that seems wedged in to deny the characters happiness (cough Mario cough). The racism isn't a theme, but there are two notable scenes, one a microaggression during sex that is reacted to immediately and one a racist Halloween costume that is treated as unobjectionable. There's also some horsing around in bed that borders on noncon touch; I didn't read it as such but some may wish to tread carefully. Um, and here's an bizarre content note for you: sex at a cat funeral.

Data shows that Lakers are top offensive franchise since 2000 - Silver Screen and Roll
It’s pretty crazy given how low the lows have been that the Lakers are still ranked so high since the turn of the century.
Given the current state of the Los Angeles Lakers, it’s pretty hard to believe that they would hold their own in any recent cumulative analysis. However, statistics compiled by Casino.org since the year 2000 are a great reminder that things haven’t been bleak very long.
Per this data, the Lakers ranked second among all 30 teams for the most productive lineups, and have had the most effective offensive lineups of any organization over that time. This output was based on their offensive, defensive and net average point differential per 100 possessions over that time:
The second team for the overall greatest number of top-tier lineups over this period was the Los Angeles Lakers. They were tops on offense, but not quite tops as far as defense went, landing at No. 9 on our list. Over the last 18 seasons, they’ve had a lot of success in the postseason, including seven finals appearances and five championships.
Defense wins championships, my ass.
