And I really don't need to see the ones that do it on purpose just to get on TV or to satisfy some inner need when they know they're not what the show is about and they have zero chance of moving on. Not lumping the zombie boys into this category, btw.


Every once in a while they do the inspirational stuff (which I don't think you were lumping into the zero chance group), like the girl with the spinal deformity and I think it adds a touch of class that even though those contestants have no chance the judges and producers are patient and even give them air time.

I remember one season of American Idol, there was this old man- found it who obviously was outside the age limit but he told his wife before she died that he'd sing on the show.  Not only did they humor him, they gave him a solid few minutes of air time and the judges were all genuinely touched by the gesture....

Right, definitely was not meaning to include anything of the sort you mentioned. And while both shows do have their class moments, its seems much more so the norm on this show than AI. IMHO.

The contortionist guys weren't 'jokes' in the category that they 'can't' dance....but they definitely weren't what the shows about. There was one shot of one of them doing a slow motion thing that was crayzay in the run up to their auditions...

Jokes like the star wars girl are usually pretty rare.

True, thankfully. I guess they feel they need to include them from time to time but it hurts me to watch them and I tend to change the channel for those parts. I'd rather just see the 'decent' folks, even if they didn't make it or were only marginal. Some people out there are truly delusional about their "talent" and are just devastated when they don't make it. Or pissed off.

And I really don't need to see the ones that do it on purpose just to get on TV or to satisfy some inner need when they know they're not what the show is about and they have zero chance of moving on. Not lumping the zombie boys into this category, btw.

Quote from: PeteRock on May 22, 2009, 10:30:06 PM

You know, it's nice to make an office your "own" with personal items and such.  That is, until it's time to pack it all up.   disgust

At least they've been accommodating in that I don't have to be finished today and can return to the office throughout all of next week.  They've also offered to allow me to continue to use my company cell phone on their dime until I purchase a replacement and retrieve all of the contact information stored in my current phone.  I guess in light of the situation that was kind of them.  It's at least better than no "severance package". 

That whole "accommodating" part is certainly not the norm from what I've seen, you got pretty lucky there. I used to be in the same camp with lots of personal crap in my office/cube but no longer. I've seen too many people basically walked out the day they are let go with little time to pack up their shit. And once with zero time, due to an alleged (bullshit) infraction he was gone before we realized it. It was like an alien abduction - everything still there, coffee warm in the cup... but he was gone. We eventually got to pack his stuff up for him... under supervision. Which seems to be fairly common as well, the 'under supervision' part. So now I keep my personal stuff to a bare minimum... I think just a mug at the moment. Besides, I'd rather just leave like it was a normal day rather than walking out with boxes of crap and a tree under my arm.

And I hear more and more horror stories about people having their laptop and cell phone immediately taken, for fear of them doing something evil, I guess. The 'horror' comes in when people have been complacent and accumulated personal stuff on their laptop and now those emails, photos or videos you had nowhere else are gone forever. Or something as simple as phone numbers, who needs to memorize them any more when the phone does that for you? But without them backed up, recorded or synced elsewhere, a phone loss of any kind can suddenly mean you can't call most of the people you know because you have no fricking idea what their number is.  icon_neutral

I was out of work for the first time in my life for three months earlier this year. While I enjoyed it at first - vacations were few and far between - it quickly started to suck. Keep your chin up and network like crazy... that's where the next position typically comes from, not the newpaper ad or randomly spamming companies, but from the people you know or the people they know or whom they reach out to on your behalf. That's where my new gig came from.

Best of luck!  icon_biggrin

I'll second this.  Dreamfall and TLJ are two of the best games I've played in any genre.  There's one part of Dreamfall that uses an extremely clunky combat mechanic (I'm currently stuck on it right now  icon_evil), but other than that it is an incredible game.

Thirded. Some called the first one "The Longest Conversations" when it first out as there is quite a bit of character dialogue in it, but great puzzles and atmosphere are the norm here. I need to go back to Dreamfall, think I left mine in the same damn spot.

Oh, and I have the original "pressing" of the 6-cdrom edition of TLJ, the ones that (quite literally) smelled just like maple syrup. I wonder if they still do...

Agreed, there were one or two spots where I fell back to a walkthru (baking cookies or some such?) but otherwise good stuff and it left you hanging. Thoughts of a sequel were squashed early on and then they announced there actually would be one. It was release last month in Germany and the UK I believe and you can download the digital version from Microids here. I think the official US retail release is sometime in June.

Otherland is quite cool though, as usual with Williams, typically overwritten.  One of the reasons I'm looking forward to the Urban Fantasy series from him is that the style of the genre will probably force him to cut back his word count. 

Cool... what I do have of his in my giant unread pile is the first Otherland book.

Same boat - haven't read 'Perdido' but really enjoyed 'War of the Flowers'. Keep hoping for some kind of sequel / follow up.

While not a sequel, Williams has announced he will start writing an Urban Fantasy series.  "War of the Flowers" had a pretty strong urban fantasy vibe so I'm looking forward to this new series. 

Thanks for the heads-up Kevin, I hadn't heard that.  I'm a little leery though, as I haven't liked anything he's done outside of War of the Flowers.

Yes, thanks. Funny, but all I've read by Tad is 'Flowers' and I keep thinking I must check out some of the other massive books I see by him, assuming they will be just as good. Perhaps not. And I got excited when I googled for "war of the flowers" and it suggested "movie" at the end. Turned out to be a Korean movie about underground gambling.  icon_frown

I don't know if "urban fantasy" is all the rage or I'm just noticing it more, but there sure is a crapload of it out there and it seems to be what I'm primarily reading lately. I read Felicia Day's blog and GoodReads page 'cuz (amongst other things) she seems to have similar tastes in books. Lately for some reason I seem to be staying mostly in the sub-genre of urban fantasy she calls "vaginal urban fantasy".  icon_biggrin Not "chick lit" or hot romance but urban fantasy with a strong female lead, usually with magic or vampires (etc) involved. Some really good stuff out there, in spite of the fact that I'm getting tired of vampires. I don't have time now but hopefully can post some examples later. Or check out her bookshelves at GR.

A fair warning to those with five guys coming in, watch out because their stuff is good, really freaking good... well, as long as you have a good franchisee. We had one by my work that was run into the ground, but over the past year the new owner has rebuilt it into a functioning franchise. I think their fries and burgers are top notch. Everything so fresh. When the first burger I got there had fresh cut Jalapenos on it I was in heaven...

Hmmm... we just recently got our first one in the Denver area and I wasn't impressed. Apparently there's 5 or 6 others in Colorado further out but I'd never heard of it until this one went into the corpse of a jewelry store close by my house. Granted, I've only been there once and they had just opened, so perhaps I should give them another shot.

It irked me that there was nothing explaining that their "burger" has two patties whereas their "little burger" was not in fact littler or a kiddy burger but only meant it has one patty, which is all I wanted. I also didn't find it all that tasty. The fries were good but they give you a crapload of them and dump them in the same brown paper bag the burgers are in, which explained the greasy bags I saw people walking out with. Perhaps I'll try again, it is pretty darn convenient, location wise. Gawd Forbid I drive too far. icon_wink

I've enjoyed everything I've had at Smash Burger, for whatever that is worth.

I'd like to know what a good starter model is, one that won't burst into tiny pieces when I inevitably crash it, and where I can get it.

Spoiler for Hiden:
she was upset over what he said about her kid in the last episode. Apparently that as where he had his break from reality, she walked away and he didn't say anything. It got a bit fuzzy after he announced to evryone they had sex, but that may have pissed her off because it would have been a lie. Another thing to take into account is some if their conversations may not have actually happened.

Spoiler for Hiden:
Right, after that pivotal moment with Cutty and the remark he makes, very little of what he thinks happened after that really happened the way he "remembers". Never hooked up or detoxed. The events are there, her involvement in them isn't. I kept thinking that Amber really mind-fucked him but he's really mind-fucking himself. As both of them noted, it was what he wanted to have happened, "too bad it wasn't true". Almost like "alien brain syndrome", to draw a parallel to the split-brain hand dude.

does prime work with their resellers? Like I was going to order dark spire, but it's through target and target charges 7 bucks to ship. So screw that noise. Of course no damn store around here has that game in stock. :|

Depends on the reseller.  Those that qualify will be marked with "Prime" by the price.  Target doesn't qualify, unfortunately.

As noted, depends. Mostly, the answer is 'no' however, it typically needs to come directly from Amazon to qualify. The only odd thing I've found, trying to show this to other people, is that if you're logged in with a "non-prime" account you have no idea what qualifies or doesn't as it won't tell you. It only shows up for the Prime members.

That being said, I resisted it for some time, not really being a big Amazonian up to that point. But took the bait when I bought a big receiver that would have cost many buckaziods to ship and the notion of getting it in two days for free was too much to pass up. Of course, the whole 'free' thing only kicks in after you buy enough to cover the enrollment costs, but I haven't found that to be a problem. With Prime, I find myself getting a plethora of things I might have picked up at a store from Amazon instead - no tax, no shipping, two days - even small things like books and cofee/tea. If I "need" something overnight, it's only something like $3.99 for that, regardless of the item. Plus being an Atlus whore, I end up pre-ordering many of their games from Amazon for the swag that it comes with there. And I don't know for sure if this is true, but it seems like Prime members get... "priority"... in the shipping process.

Bottom line it's been well worth it for me.  thumbsup
