I think comics in general are in a precarious position in the publishing world.  They're still flashy enough to attract kids and teens, but they're often aimed at older audiences.  So they walk a very fine line sometimes.

I had never heard of Playstation Vue.  Sounds like a great idea...if it weren't 50 bucks for the lowest plan.  I'll give the free trial a try, but there's no way I'm going back to paying almost cable level costs for tv again.

My luck, they'd accidentally shine it on its side and Isgrimnur would freakin' show up.

"a" denotes singular.  When have you ever known me to travel with a single source of good lighting?

Check isthereanydeal.com and setup an alert.  That's what I did and I got ESO for 17 bucks about two weeks ago when gamesrocket.com had it on sale for 24 hours.

They're partially right.  Slavery was only part of the reason for the Civil War.  I do have to add I'm not sure how you can draw a comparison between what I wrote and what they believe.  I'm not saying that gay rights were coming anyway and we shouldn't have done anything to help it along.  

If you look back at Civil Rights, Women's Suffrage, etc., they all gradually came into being (and I might add, through the work of great individuals).  At no point was there an overnight proclamation from the general populace supporting these things.  Change that happens quickly has a tendency not to last, I believe. Change needs to gradually work its way into the public consciousness.   I wish that wasn't the case and we could accept such things quickly, but the first impulse by most is to kick back against societal changes that they don't initially agree with.  

Real change takes time.  Period.

This sucks.  I can't find a SXSW thread so I can complain about SXSW, and the fact that a freaking stage lighting company showed up at my neighbors *house* the other day.

Are you still mad the spotlight isn't going to be on you??  I've told you before:  a one man show called "Geezer Eats Stuff and Looks at a Birdhouse" is NOT a good idea for an off broadway production!

I've come to the conclusion that "ripping the bandage off" is not the way to go about change in our society.  It happens gradually.  Hopefully they'll (and others)  will continue to grow in the direction that I think any just and compassionate God would approve.

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.

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.
72  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [TV] The Walking Dead Season 5 on: March 02, 2015, 10:11:35 PM
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
78  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.
