Haha. In what way?

I'm still not sure what I think of this guy's voice. Sometimes it is great and sometimes I think 'wtf?'

That new Sword is okay... it doesn't have any outright stinkers like Warp Riders did, but it doesn't have any really great songs either... I agree that the songs are sort of indistinct on it and sitting here right now, I can only think of how one song goes... that's not a good sign.  The first two records are still so, so good though...  I dunno, this might grow on me.  I got the picture disc vinyl, and it certainly *looks* cool.

This Beastwars band actually has some potential... I don't hear Mastodon in there though.  Some Sword, for sure... some Neurosis... with some Sisters of Mercy on top.

That doesn't make a lot of sense to me, since Sid (Cid?) was THE storyline...

Spoiler for Hiden:
Well... that's where it all gets interesting, though.  Wherever old Seth was, he would be affected by what happened to young Seth, as long as they didn't kill him... but yes, then he never would have come back, so it gets... Loopy.

Same thing with Joe, if he kills himself, then he never can have come back, so young Joe would never have had to kill himself... which would the result in it looping back the way it did loop back.  Maybe the explanation is just that in this loop, both of those things happen.  I dunno... the paradox is what makes it so interesting.  It's not as cut and dried as you state... and it is as cut and dried as you state. smile

It's an infinite loop in which he's a sort of Schrodinger's cat...

Spoiler for Hiden:
I think you overlooked how his life turned out once he stopped being a Looper.  His time in China he became some sort of bass ass gangster in his own right

Bingo.

Surely I'm not the only one to have gone to this.

What an incredible movie!  I was disturbed by a lot of it, to be honest... the last time I was this impressed with a Sci Fi movie was Children of Men, I think.

It's like beating my head against a wall.  I just don't have time.

I'm in the first area after leaving the prison or whatever that place is... if I go one way, I run into skeletons which I literally cannot kill.  If I go the other way I end up in this city of the undead or something... I go along fine for a while, but then I have to fight through a bunch of guys only to get to the top of a wall and hit a boss, which I've made it to ONCE, and he destroyed me in seconds, which is fine for a boss the first time, I guess... except that I then have to go back through all of those other dudes again to get to him, there is no save point near the boss, which is idiotic... so I'm reduced to just grinding away at the same enemies over, and over, and over, and over again so I can try to slowly level up enough to make it to the boss... on what planet is that fun?

Sounds like a tough time.  I don't have much to offer other than condolences.
170  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [movie] Dredd on: September 25, 2012, 04:54:12 AM
I thought it was pretty good.  Not life changing, but better than I expected, even with the good reviews.  And also maybe a little bit not as good as I expected.

I dunno.  I had fun.
171  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Phone cover/case? on: September 20, 2012, 03:46:34 PM
I went with the Acase Superleggera pro, and so far I think it is great. Nice feel, not too bulky, and with better access to the headphone jack for larger plugs.

Thanks for the recommendation!

I just thought that looked fantastic.  The dwarves are young and good looking... that's what's weird.  It's also the title of a really good album.
173  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / FS 360: Dark Souls on: September 17, 2012, 04:07:48 AM
It's about 4 hours old, and was brand new earlier today.

$23, shipped.

I have an iPhone 4S.

I had an Otterbox Defender, and it was freakin' enormous, and also the rubber part got all stretched out after like... 4 months?  I bought an Otterbox commuter, which is better on size, and is easier to get in and out of my pocket, but the plastic part is breaking around all of the corners, and a piece fell off today... I think I got maybe 6 months out of it, so maybe I should buy another one, but...

Anything better out there?

Wants: can survive biking, running, etc. and small amounts of moisture better than no case, and slips in and out of my pants pocket easily.

Not looking for an e-reader (I have a Kindle), I'm looking for an effective tablet for normal tablet stuff, and some light work related stuff (taking notes in meetings, calling up google docs in meetings sort of stuff).
177  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Amazon Kindle: Kindle Paperwhite! Updated Fire! Kindle Fire HD! on: September 09, 2012, 02:57:08 PM
I'm sort of in the market... these are intriguing.  I have so little awareness of what other options are out there... what else should I be looking at in this price range?

My wife has an iPad, and it's nice, but... the 32gb pricing seems insane.
178  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: The Dirty Joke Thread [NSFW text - duh] on: September 08, 2012, 09:59:25 PM
That one is good.  I was a fan of the first one too...
179  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: My current musical obsession (metal) on: July 30, 2012, 04:55:09 PM
I'm not even sure if this qualifies as a 'metal' album, but it is so, so, so good:

Baroness - Yellow & Green



You can listen to the whole thing at that link.

How was this for younger kids? After a lot of discussion (and seeing it before) we took our kid to avengers and he loved it and we felt pretty comfortable about it. How does this compare? 

Kid is a little young, but he is insane about superheroes, and spiderman is his favorite (well, until he saw iron man in avengers, anyway).

Great video.  That cracked me up.  Kids and dogs always amaze me with how well they handle stuff and how it doesn't get them down like it seems to with the rest of us.  Good stuff.

Good to hear that it looks like things are clearing out.

Also took our 4.5 year old... some of the scary stuff was maybe a little too scary... and I don't think I've ever heard this kid say a movie was scary before.
183  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [movie] Snow Crash on: June 17, 2012, 03:39:54 PM
I don't know if Cryptonomicon would be a good miniseries, just because I think weaving the timelines together would be very challenging, and hard to follow...

Anathem, on the other hand... it's a fairly focused narrative, but epic scope... that is the one I've always thought would be good HBO miniseries fodder.

Saw it in 3D because my friend wanted to... it looked fine, but the 3D really was, as always, not worth paying for.

How did those big things fly?

I forgot to stay post credits.  Oops.

I am interested in a single touch, as my Kindle keyboard just fell and died.  What would you want for one?

Tomorrow is the last day of week 2...

Never been so busy in my life, but I'm learning alot, and starting to get comfortable with it.

The commute honestly doesn't bother me one bit.  I got a couple books on tape from the library, but mostly I just listen to NPR or music.  There is great mountain biking smack dab in the middle of the commute, so I've brought my bike 4 days  so far and stopped off to ride after work.  Because I take short lunches and bail at 4:30 or so, I'm actually in the mountains on the bike faster than if I had the old job.

The job situation is way cooler... no BS, no power trips.

Waking up at 3:45 this morning because the new job is stressing me out had the one advantage of me being able to easily fit in my 4 miler.
195  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [movie] Cabin in the Woods on: April 17, 2012, 12:57:24 AM
Saw this yesterday.

Super funny.  Pretty smart.

Overall, great!
196  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: The 2012 Health Improvement Thread on: April 17, 2012, 12:54:36 AM
I ran my first 5K on Saturday.  Got 2nd for men age 30 - 39.  Clearly, there were not many entrants (though definitely more than 2!)  Then I went and got in 20 awesome trail miles on a bike I was demoing in Colorado.

This is my first week at the new gig, so exercise will be a different endeavor, but I can move my 8 hours around however I'd like (short lunches, etc), so I should be able to do my 4 mile run in the morning and make it there by 8:30 and not have to get up too awfully early...

Lacking a printer at home, because that shit always breaks after 2 months, it seems, I printed out all my forms for the new job at my old job.  That's bad form, right?  I guess they can't really begrudge me 4 pieces of paper...
199  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Work decision on: April 13, 2012, 03:52:36 PM
