I fully expect you to make that your desktop background.

Something like this might be a bit expensive, but your street cred will go through the roof.

Yup, Yahoo Screen is not what I would call user friendly.  I still can't figure out if they offer subtitles.  I like to use that option with shows like Community because the jokes can fly by very quickly.

I really want a remake of Blade Runner with Leonard as Roy Batty.

Just watched both new episodes and loved them.  They're heavy on the meta...much more so than previously...but still a lot of fun.  Porteguese Gremlins was great.  And Chang stole every scene he was in.

The juxtaposition of Eugene and Nicholas was heavy handed in this episode, but still great.  Eugene thinks he's a coward and isn't afraid to vocalize it, while Nicholas pretended to be braver than he really was.  When it came time to prove their claims, both men failed spectacularly.  In the case of Eugene, it showed everyone that he's a much better man than he lets on, while Nicholas...well...you know.

p.s. "I gotta send a fax to Cleveland" will forever be a part of my vocabulary.

Listen, I think we ALL agree that I'm the sexiest forum goer around.  If simply agreeing with that sentiment causes OO to go down, I highly doubt it would work at all.

Really?  I've only seen it a few times in the last year.  Certainly not what I'd even remotely call "a lot".

The overlords have been notified.  FishPants is on vacation, however, so I do not yet have an expected resolution time.  Unless someone wants to go retrieve him.

Poor fishpants.  As a fellow IT minion, I can attest that the moment you go on vacation, something will break.  It's like clockwork.

Yeah I'm also not sure what's going on with the priest story arc.  I totally don't remember what happened with him in the comic, but I never had the impression he went bonkers like this.

I think you need to reread the comics then.   icon_wink

Noah's death hit me harder than I expected.  The actor who played him has been a favorite of mine since his days on Everybody Hates Chris.  He made Noah his own and it was heartbreaking to see him go out like that after such a poignant scene at the beginning of the episode.   icon_cry

The difference between the public reaction to the iPad versus the iWatch is that there was at least SOME recognition of what the iPad was good for.  

p.s. don't expect the iWatch to replace your phone unless you want to recharge it every 3 hours.

Okay, just got around to watching it and Carol stole that episode.  Her interview was fantastic.  She deliberately played weak so they would underestimate her.  I don't believe she's cracked at all.  She knows exactly what she's doing.  I swear, she's rapidly coming up on Daryl when it comes to favorite character.

Nah.  You've just been exposed to poorly written movies and television for so long that its just natural for you to see those things as examples of good writing.  You'll grow out of it eventually...I hope.   Tongue

As for the supports? This show has never been about realism.

Was it the zombies that gave it away?  It was the zombies, wasn't it?

As you know I don't mean it that way, but the flaws in writing, directing, etc, that pulls you out of the show. Obviously it happens with me a lot more than you guys with this show. icon_wink

Some flaws and missteps exist, sure.  But many of the things that you feel are wrong are simply due to the fact that your version of the way things should go often doesn't mesh with how things happen in real life.  You look for James Bond and when you get Joe Blow, you mistakenly believe it's an example of bad writing.

My brother deals with it in his own way  He bought a camp in West Virginia that was a gay resort and has been building it up over the years.  Now they have their own world where they don't even have to deal with small minded idiots like that.  

Of course, he wasn't too bothered by them before considering he's 6'2" and his partner of the last 15 years is an ex-marine who's 2 inches taller than him.   icon_wink

The comic had many of the things you've complained about in regards to the show.  I suspect you'd accuse it of being horribly written as well.  Although you'd most likely buy every issue, if your past behavior is any indication.   icon_razz
68  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [TV] The Walking Dead Season 5 on: February 24, 2015, 08:43:21 PM
For someone who constantly refers to the show as horribly written, you sure seem to never miss an episode.   icon_wink

p.s. They didn't show the car stopping because of a dead battery.  They showed the car already stopped, then mentioned the dead battery.  It's entirely possible they stopped to stretch their legs and then weren't able to start the RV because of the battery. 

But honestly, if you're finding something like that to be that much of a distraction, I have to wonder how you can ever enjoy 90 percent of what's on tv (or in theaters).

I think the first person you mention was already shown at the beginning of the season, just not identified.

It just became goofy when he suddenly hit the 18 foot tall level at one point.  I really, really hated that.  And the Hulk dogs looked like Glen Quagmire on all fours.

I want to like Ang's version because, like you said, he was playing up the character of Bruce Banner first and foremost, but good lord did he screw the pooch on everything else.

As to Ang Lee's movie, I didn't buy into the hate and though the cinematic presentation was different, I felt it delivered until his dad turned into a cloud. Then? Then it was stupid. Comparing the doctors, I felt Bana's cold delivery was better insofar as Banner had emotional issues and was played very well.

That was kind of my take, although I wasn't a big fan of Ang's attempt to tie Hulk's physical size to his rage level.  And the Hulk dogs. 

You know what?  Never mind.  I think I just remembered I hate it now.
76  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: The Man From UNCLE from Guy Ritchie on: February 12, 2015, 02:51:44 PM
I watched the original when it was rebroadcast years later on a local cable channel.  I quickly became a Man from U.N.C.L.E. junkie as a teenager.  Hell, I even sought out and read the novelizations that were released.  David McCallum's Illya Kuryakin was the man. Napoleon Solo only less so. 

I really hope Richie plays up the silliness and fun of the original series.  And I hope they don't hand TOO many emotions to Illya.  It was always fun seeing him struggle with the "heart on the sleeve" approach to life exhibited by Americans on the show.

They manage it and shuffle it around as they see fit, I believe.  They do include a bunch of info, but I don't recall ever seeing anything that amounted to a "heads up" blurb about investing.   As I said, if you're looking for any kind of hands on control of your investments, Betterment is not for you.  But if you want to ease into the world of stocks and bonds and let someone else drive while you watch the road, it's a great service so far.

I love it.

He snuck a bunch of doctored photos into the Grammy museum and no one noticed them for a month or so. 





Not sure if this little blurb from an article is true, but it made me laugh all the same:

Quote
Grammy officials were confused by who could have smuggled the pictures into the building. It was noticed by a museum-goer who asked a security guard who Paz was.

He replied: I think hes in One Direction.

Love it.  But it's for those who just want to toss money into the world of stocks and bonds without actually learning much about it.  That's not to say you can't, they include a ton of info, but they do manage it all for you.  They go with Vanguard so I'm pretty comfortable with their choices.
