I hunk it's just sad to me. Not at I judge anyone else for feeling differently, but having read a few interviews with him post-stroke, it did seem like he had retained his faculties, if not his fine motor control on his right side. Nevertheless, I'm sure he and Don Cornelius are putting on one hell of a dance show up there.

I wonder the calorie count on a large slice :-P

A bit on the news says 440 cal per slice.

If Redskins routinely win the offseason, the Jets are the Super Bowl champs of self-promotion. What idiots.

Looks like any chance of a Netflix deal is over.

Quote
The dinos of Terra Nova are now even more extinct. Despite an 11th hour attempt by Netflix to keep the show alive, a deal could not be reached and the show's producers are ready to throw in the towel.

Netflix was interested in the show, and talks had been ongoing with 20th Century Fox TV to keep Terra Nova alive. But sticking points began to emerge - and not just production costs. As a result, at least two insiders have confirmed to TV Guide Magazine that it's all over for Terra Nova.

Behold my influence!! Okay, it's still on, but now as a web series only.
657  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome on: March 21, 2012, 10:18:58 PM
Thanks, that point is so relevant.

ETA: I understand what you are saying, just so you don't respond trying to explain your point. Seeing as how my life, at least, is led differently than a sci-fi action series (though perhaps I should try to change that), they really aren't analogous. To me, most of the tension from a series like this comes from:

A) Who will live? Whether it's a big mission, potential sabotage, or some other potentially lethal situation, I need to be invested in a character's survival.

B) Wil the "good guys" win? Regardless of who survives, will the protagonists' struggle find victory?

Both are meaningless as even if the colonials make it out alive, their entire way of life will be obliterated within 50 years. Plus, it's not as if we don't know how the war "ends": big, sexy armistice action.

Fr all of that, I'll give it a shot. I loved the reboot series, so who knows, but it'll be a challenge to get me invested in the new characters.
658  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome on: March 21, 2012, 08:16:36 PM
Yeah, but this is even more extreme of a situation for me. I haven't seen the Clone Wars, but it is feasible that some of the characters on there can survive the events of the OT and beyond, but 99.99% of humanity is annihilated by the cylons, so unless they happened to be on Galactica/Pegasus/the civilian fleet, they're gone. Any other characters who evade danger in B&C are only postponing their inevitable doom and what they're fighting for is fruitless.
659  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome on: March 21, 2012, 10:00:39 AM
It's not animated.

Yeah, Hines Ward was a damn good receiver and blocker. He was the one of the few Steelers that I have ever liked.  Vaya con dios, Hines.

why?  i thought they needed an h-back?

And how much practice has Tebow had as a straight up h-back? Would he be willing to do it?
664  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: NFL 2011 Offseason Discussion on: March 19, 2012, 09:57:32 AM
Nevertheless, it's pretty cool not to leave them potentially high and dry..
665  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: NFL 2011 Offseason Discussion on: March 14, 2012, 03:52:20 AM
Yeah, well ask the Cards how Kolb, aka the last backup-turned-savior, worked out for them. At least the 'Skins won't be paying RG3 too much.
666  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: NFL 2011 Offseason Discussion on: March 10, 2012, 07:02:44 PM
Exceedingly few teams win big without a big-time QB and the 'Skins generally win just enough to be out of the running for the marquee players. For every Tom Brady you find in the sixth round, there are a hundred nobodies. Any player below RG3 has too many question marks. Nothing's for sure, but I think the Redskins were right to pull the trigger on this one.
667  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: NFL 2011 Offseason Discussion on: March 10, 2012, 04:11:04 PM
When you can get a highly regarded QB to lead your franchise, you do it. It's a big gamble, but the 'Skins need to make this kind of move if they want a QB of the future.
668  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: NFL 2011 Offseason Discussion on: March 08, 2012, 01:18:20 AM
Redskins need to trade up for the QB that Indy leaves behind (please be RG3).
669  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [TV] Terra Nova on: March 06, 2012, 07:28:58 PM
Sooooo much wasted potential and truly piss-poor writing. The acting wasn't that great, and the effects went downhill as the season progressed. Other than that, stellar effort by all involved.

OK, first of all there are not RoboCop movies. There is RoboCop and then some people claim that there are several sequels, but they don't exist. There also might be a sort of ok TV series. Maybe.

Second of all, RoboCop was, is and always will be AWESOME.

Agreed, Robocop is a classic.

678  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: R.I.P. Whitney Houston on: February 13, 2012, 03:43:16 AM
I'm certainly not saying anyone has to mourn her; I'm not particularly sad for her, but I won't mock people who do feel something about it.
679  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: R.I.P. Whitney Houston on: February 13, 2012, 03:20:24 AM
Well, I don't tend to mourn celebrity deaths overall; I feel bad for their families a bit, but I never pretend to know them and as my family has suffered some losses in the past few years especially, I save my grief for those whom I truly care*. Nevertheless, I can understand how people feel a connection to an actor or singer or writer, any artist that is able to reach people with their talent. The media may be salacious, but I think a lot of people do mourn the loss of a talent such as Whitney Houston had, or Phil Hartman had. It's especially jarring to when it happens prematurely, as it had in both of those cases. In any case, I don't see the point in demeaning those who may have identified with those artists; the fact that they are mourned is proof that they were successful in connecting with their respective audiences.

*I will always miss Patrick Swayze. He was just cool.

Sunday, 1800 EST, is anyone having trouble getting Skyrim to work? It checks for updates for the mods (which I wish I knew how to turn off) and then pops up the windows error saying that the game stopped working. I'm sure it's one of the mods, but it's not the one that it stops on and I don't feel like unsubscribing and resubscribing later. Anyone have a fix?
