42  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: What D&D character are you? on: August 15, 2013, 09:23:32 PM
Kind of fun, tho i never thought of myself as a caster type...

You Are A:

Neutral Good Human Sorcerer (6th Level)

Ability Scores:
Strength- 16
Dexterity- 14
Constitution- 18
Intelligence- 17
Wisdom- 16
Charisma- 13

Neutral Good- A neutral good character does the best that a good person can do. He is devoted to helping others. He works with kings and magistrates but does not feel beholden to them. Neutral good is the best alignment you can be because it means doing what is good without bias for or against order. However, neutral good can be a dangerous alignment when it advances mediocrity by limiting the actions of the truly capable.

Humans are the most adaptable of the common races. Short generations and a penchant for migration and conquest have made them physically diverse as well. Humans are often unorthodox in their dress, sporting unusual hairstyles, fanciful clothes, tattoos, and the like.

Sorcerers- Sorcerers are arcane spellcasters who manipulate magic energy with imagination and talent rather than studious discipline. They have no books, no mentors, no theories just raw power that they direct at will. Sorcerers know fewer spells than wizards do and acquire them more slowly, but they can cast individual spells more often and have no need to prepare their incantations ahead of time. Also unlike wizards, sorcerers cannot specialize in a school of magic. Since sorcerers gain their powers without undergoing the years of rigorous study that wizards go through, they have more time to learn fighting skills and are proficient with simple weapons. Charisma is very important for sorcerers; the higher their value in this ability, the higher the spell level they can cast.

Spoiler for Hiden:
They are all clones, but they all seem to have vestigial memories along with similar character traits.   When the agent 49 meets the counterpart clone to agent 52, they continue to banter about the same differences of opinions that he had with his own counterpart even though they had never met.  There is supposed to be a core part of him that  is genuinely himself no matter how often he is cloned or controlled by the alien.

Director Ryan Coogler, fresh off the acclaimed drama “Fruitvale Station,” is set to direct.  Coogler originally pitched the idea to Stallone, who uses the same management company as the director. Stallone reportedly liked the idea of pushing the franchise forward with a new lead enough to bring the story to MGM. The studio is in early talks to also bring aboard his “Fruitvale Station” star, Michael B. Jordan, for the title role in “Creed,” according to the report.

It sounds more promising knowing someone totally new and talented is behind the initial push to get the movie made.  It may not be a grab for easy cash from a studio executive afraid of new ideas, but a fresh perspective on an old story.

Of course, to all those people waiting in line, you walked past them to D-Bag seating.

You mean all those people who could have also bought their tickets online if it means that much to them? I fail to see the problem...

The problem is that the theater named the seating something that is easy to turn into D-Bag.

I kinda am a D-bag tho. slywink

I actually love the reserved seating at my local theater.  They offer motion seats called D-Box seating and they are reserved only. Nothing quite as satisfying as ordering tickets a couple days in advance, walking into a packed theater 5min before previews start, and sitting in the exact seat you want.

It's an interesting convergence that tickets to plays are sold in the same manner. Do you pay a "convenience charge" when you buy movie tix online?

Yes, they do charge extra for online ticket purchases, but I have been buying my movie tickets online for quite a while now and paying extra isn't really a problem.  I remember having 6 tickets to The Phantom Menace without ever leaving home, while people waited in line for days and never got a ticket.... If only I could go back in time and warn myself to temper my expectations....

So, I kept watching Venture Bros in the hopes that it would click, and it finally did around episode 5 (the Bowie references totally won me over smile).  Will finish up Season 1, and am seriously considering dropping the $$ for Season 2 on iTunes. 

Seasons 3 and 4 are crazy expensive though...$30 and $37, respectively.  Not sure I'm up for that.

I'm glad you stuck with it.  This show just got better every season for me, and after watching all 4 seasons, I find that they are just as funny or better the 2nd time around.  If I am flipping channels and see them on, I always end up watching.  Season 5 premeirs on Cartoon Network on June 2nd I think.  Now I just need seasons 2-4 to appear on Netflix....

I started focusing on my health a little more at the beginning of this year.  It has always been my experience that building muscle mass before focusing on actual weight loss always got better results for me.  After 4 months of fairly regular gym time I have lost Zero lbs, but my waist size has gone down 3-4 inches.  In another month I will start regulating my diet a little bit and doing some cardio in my workouts, and i expect a 15-20lb weight loss should be relatively easy.

RDJ was originally signed to a 5 picture deal?  That would make this the end of HIS phase 1 at least.

Are you including RDJ's cameo at the end of HULK?

Iron man 1,2,&3 with Avengers and I was just assuming that he was locked into Avenger 2.  Thus he would finish his 5 pictures without returning to the Iron Man franchise.

I'm still plugging away.  I take occasional breaks when other new games come out, but I always seem to return to WoT.  I like the quick battles and the strategy involved in the higher tiered battles.  That and I have started playing in some Clan Wars.

RDJ talks about retiring from Iron Man again, especially after his injury during production:

"It got me thinking about how big the message from your cosmic sponsor needs to be before you pick it up," he says. "How many genre movies can I do? How many follow-ups to a successful follow-up are actually fun? Because, as quiet as it's kept, I come from a family of very innovative writers and directors and actors and artists... So there's this kind of legacy of souls from what I consider to be a very particular time in entertainment, and I'm sensing a return to that -- it's what me and the missus are doing next. It's not unlike: I heard Brady signed on for three more years with New England, and then he's done being a QB, because he'll be 40. I'm 47, and I'll be 50."

Iron Man 3 is the last film he's under contract to do.  I imagine they will be able to tempt him back with big bags of money though.

Just saw a quote from him today where he admitted that his back end deal from The Avengers paid him north of $50million.  I am not sure that money will be the motivator he needs to return to Iron Man, and I would bet that Disney/Marvel won't be giving out too many more of those contracts.

Also, I have to second Venture Bros. as one of the best things Cartoon Network has ever put on.  And that it stands in the pantheon of comedy without even mentioning the animation side of it.  But maybe we built it up too much?

It may be that I'm not remembering it as a slow build.  One of the best thing about it are the recurring characters that you know well enough to enjoy when they react to a given situation just as you'd expect, but the show is well written enough that they often surprise you.

Also it helps if you've seen Johnny Quest (also not available).

That may be part of the problem.  I vaguely remember Johnny Quest, but was never really a fan.  Hence, some of the humor may be lost on me.

It's odd though, as I can totally see the setup for funny stuff in there, it just doesn't really seem to deliver.  I'll give it another couple episodes before writing it off...maybe I was just in a bad mood last night.

The Venture Bros seems, to me, to be along the same vein as Seinfeld.  It's only truely funny once you understand all the characters.  I wasn't exposed to them until the 2nd season was out  on DVD and I watched the first two seasons in one weekend.  Now that the next season (5 I believe) is due to start soon, it is a good time to do some catching up.

Knowing Johnny Quest might help a little, but once they are rolling they play to a wider audience.

I bought a Samsung a few years ago now. French door with freezer on the bottom style. I opted not to get to in door ice/water dispenser as I tend to have a ton of things in the doors of my fridge and I hated to lose half that space.  The ice maker in the freezer works very well and I would recommend the Samsung based on my experience.  I agree with the "buy as large as you can fit" method. You can never have too much fridge space when you have kids.
