00:01:30 Zack Snyder: “The Force Awakens Killed More Civilians Than Man of Steel”

“I was surprised with the fervency of the defense of the concept of Superman. I feel like they were taking it personally that I was trying to grow up their character.”

31:30 Rutskarn’s Tales of D&D Tomfoolery.
Also contains japery and shenanigans.
