I realize gellar is being gellar here...

If I were overly sensitive or emotional should he have to apologize for that?  For being gellar?  Or only if Knightshade asked him to.


Stop the presses:  Gellar is married to Knightshade??

Spoiler for Hiden:
I was gonna ask WTF that one part was where they show her nakedness, and I was more shocked at that...and didn't put any greater meaning to it other than he saw a naked girl...

One thing I didn't get- that ties into the whole pedophelia thing- is the odd occurrence of the visitor at oskar's dad's house.  Was he (the dad) setting oskar up to be raped?

Any way, glad they played down the pedophelia angles, as if I had caught on to that I probably would have turned it off.



Overall solid film.


Spoiler for Hiden:
In an interview with the director, he noted that some people thought that Oskar's dad was gay because of that scene.  The director said that was not his intention at all.  So I doubt that was what going on.  I believe it was intended to show that Oskar's dad liked his liquor more than his son.

Regardless, I'll probably see her this weekend and discuss the situation.  A big deal about nothing.  My biggest problem was with my wife's demands and orders.    

I think it's best to swallow your pride in this instance.  Your wife will admire you for it and she may purchase a new pool stick or other pool related item for you as a sign of her gratitude.  

Conversely she may see this as a sign of weakness and attack.  I'm not sure how it's going to play out, but I'm fairly certain I want it videotaped.

can't post the link since I am on my phone, but I read a CDC report on the swine flu outbreak at Fort Dix in 1976. Looks like this one is similiar. Also read that this is a H1N1 Strain that is similiar to the normal human flu.

Lastly, I think the 'overreaction' is a good thing. It should help keep this from blowing up out of control, and keep us better prepared for when the big one does come.

There's a discussion going on at OO over this, as well.  One thing that DOES make it very different than normal strains of flu is that it includes animal genes, which makes natural immunity in humans very, very rare.

A side note but I hate it when people go places with their dog.....

This always surprises me and momentarily makes me feel guilty because my dogs never leave the house/yard except for their daily 2 mile walks. I don't take them to dog parks (too scared of disease and inattentive dog owners with their overly aggressive dogs) or to go visit other people's homes. I would be too paranoid about them doing something destructive.

I'm a huge dog lover, but I completely understand that sentiment.  Whenever I've had dogs, I've always been hesitant to take them to another's house as I'd be incredibly embarrassed if they decided to do something nasty on the carpet.

I hate to admit, but I'm incredibly sensitive to body language and tone.  It is with great remorse that I have to say I sympathize with this person.  She may be wrong, but short of confronting her and forcing her to seek out the therapy she needs to develop a thicker skin, you're going to have to deal with this situation as long as she's your wife's friend.

...which brings up a potential solution, if you're willing.  Steal some of this woman's clothing and leave it scattered around your bedroom when your wife's away.  When she comes home, quickly kick this clothing under the bed while whistling and looking at the ceiling.  There's a very good chance that this Dana person will soon be UNinvited to any social events.

of course, you're probably going to lose a testicle in the process.  but it may be worth it if this person is troubling you as much as it seems.

which means you have to buy another one.  sony has a plan, my friend.

I'm with EroticCabbage on this one.  DR was a great, great gaming experience for me.  I admit, I had no desire to pick it up based on the demo that they released a few months before the game came out.  But after seeing more and more positive reviews on it when it did hit the shelves, I broke down.  I'm glad I did.  It really is a game that's greater than the sum of its parts.  The overall experience is just fantastic.  I still go back and replay it every few months just to try and save more of those losers holing up in the food court or whatever. 

Yeah, but you also liked There Will Be Boredom.

PeteRock, as we've all come to learn, is now addicted to pool (the ball and stick version; not the one with water, chlorine and warm spots where the kids were swimming).  However, poor Pete has no cool, pool hall nickname.  When he strolls in the door of his local pool joint now, everyone just yells "PETE!" (or, if it's ladies night: "ROCK!"). 

Won't you help give Pete a nickname? 

Pete, we'll need some help from you, as well.  Please post the name of the city you play in most, where you were born, favorite foods, number of times you've had an STD and what you REALLY think of Moliere.  These things can help when coming up with the perfect pool hall name.

Winner will be notified by email and will receive one slightly used pool cue chalk that looks mysteriously like Edward Norton.

But, since I've been gaming less and less while spending even more time in pool halls than before (I now play a minimum 3 to 4 days a week, 2 to 5 hours each session),

would it be okay if we came up with a cool pool hustler name for you?  something like "Arizona Slim"?

I loved the fact that your character could continue to level up even if you started a new game.  If you found that the game is insufferably hard, you could just return to it after bulking up.  The save system was annoying, but only because I'm used to the luxury of pc game save systems.  On consoles, that type of save system is fairly common.

The sheer joy of whacking wave after wave of zombies with an electric guitar was worth the price of admission and the frustration of going from pc gaming to console gaming norms.

I'm actually enjoying my little stockpile so far.  10 games for 100 bucks isn't that bad a haul.  I'm about an hour into Jericho and even though I can understand some of the complaints, I'm having fun with it.  I plan on playing through most of what I got and trading in what I find I don't like (Hellboy going first).  I look at it this way, it's only a couple dollars more than a rental on the game at blockbuster.

P.S.  I'm going to check back for a copy of Devil May Cry 4 as I've heard from more than one source that they might be restocking today.

I got this also during the BB clearance sale Sunday.  For 10 bucks, I figure I can't go TOO wrong.

Question though:  I thought the makers were talking about releasing a fairly comprehensive patch that included content and changes to gameplay that were supposed to bring the game more in line with their original vision?  Has that ever been released?

You need to be connected to Xbox Live(just a Silver account) in order to play BC games.  You need to usually download a small update for most games.  The Halo games were the only games that didnt need a 1st time update.

I think he mentioned either here or the crosspost on OO that he'd already downloaded the updates.  My suggestion was based off the assumption that something might be wrong with the software on his system and that maybe a connection to the Live servers might help.

Not to undermine the premise of the movie, but who would come up with the idea of putting a person alone on the moon for 3 years? That just seems like a recipe for disaster that no one outside of the University Psychology department would contemplate.

Oh, but he's not alone, he has that friendly not-HAL to keep him company. And I'm sure not-HAL has nothing do with any of this.

Made me think of Silent Running.

On a good note, at the Best Buy I was at yesterday, everyone was great. People were helping other people find games and check prices. Didn't see any asshats hoarding anything.

I had the same experience at the BB I went to yesterday morning.  This one guy was talking on the phone and every time he'd repeat the name of a game that his son (I assumed it was his son because of the tone of the conversation) asked about, someone would hand it to him if it was available.  It was actually pretty humorous.  The guy would wave away most of them, but he took a few that were offered.

I would try hooking it up to the 'net before throwing in the towel.  If it's got some mucho old copy of the dashboard running on it that's all screwed up, it may be causing your problems.  I've never encountered an issue with BC games, so I'm surprised at the trouble you're having.  It's usually completely painless:  put game in the drive, xbox downloads update, i'm playing within 3 minutes.
