Also, let's keep this thread about Galchenyuk's on-ice performance, development and value and NOT bring in his personal life or race.

Nice plea for liberalism there (flights of prose and his broader philosophy notwithstanding).

Liberalism is based on respect for individuality. It demands tolerance of difference and forming broad pluralist coalitions and organizations.

It contrasts with both far left and right wing forms of authoritarianism. Of forced conformity for the sake of social unity.

Both, ultimately, seek social cohesion and collaboration. One by throwing a broad tent that respects individuality. The other by leveling towards uniformity.

Been trying to tell you so, Mr « Your Own ». It’s ultimately a question of how broadly or narrowly your define the fundamental common denominators and delineate what you consider your group.

Considerably better but still kinda « whatever », I thought. I find Scorcesee, especially his earlier stuff, too obvious/telegraphed. I don’t mean that pretentiously. It’s like the opposite. Like the movies take themselves way to seriously for the relatively obvious banalities they convey.

He’s got spirit, though. Goodfellas was the best of the genre, imho. Wolf of Wall Street had alot of style. Silence was a failed epic, but original (subject matter, angle from which he conveys his religiosity and the arid feel and pace were perfect for the narrative). Departed, Casino and whatever were made fo money, gotta pay the bills.

Bunch of his stuff I haven’t watched that are on the list. I think he’s better than many, can do some good stuff but generally he’s overrated. Kubrick and Copolla are way ahead for me in terms of the Muricans.

I don’t see any contradictions between civic nationalism and liberalism, in fact I think they go hand in hand.

OOOH yeah life goes on, long after the thrill of Vinny is gone

It's too bad all the people that could really run the Habs are busy doing talk radio, writing blogs or posting on message boards.

Now, Lajoie is an imbecile, a cretin and a plagiarist, who to use author Dany Laferrière's deliciously withering expression, "lives beyond his intellectual means."

...as serious as a poutine shortage in Chicoutimi during a curling bonspiel...

Apparently I have taken on some major hatred because of my fondness for R Bull. I like boxing movies. Probably you hate Blanca y negro film. Why treat me like Yasser Arafat?

People give me crap when I buy a red bull too. For a moment, though, when my doctor told me I had had a heart attack, I thought they may have had a point. They didn’t. I didn’t have a heart attack.

I'd've gotten around to smoking by now if it were to have happened.

It hasn't, it won't.

The flipping the fuck the fuck off in a bushy beard, ballcap and weird-ass webcam look... is...
