After the season finale where RM Corp found a way to make thinking Bots, I was hoping for a continuation of the story where Paradim learned the hard way the downside of Bots that can say, "No."

@  Rycochet : (28 September 2016 - 09:40 AM)

I liked Phantom 2040 more.

@  Blues : (27 September 2016 - 05:08 PM)

I LOVE BOT MASTER SO MUCH. Too bad the toys sucked. I even own jungle fiver. I love him so much, but he can barely stand on his own.

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 September 2016 - 05:03 PM)

That's the 90s.

@  MEDdMI : (27 September 2016 - 04:50 PM)

Ninjzz? That's an unfortunate name.

@  Verity Carlo : (27 September 2016 - 04:44 PM)

Also I thought Fico Ossio was quite nice on Revolutions.

@  Rycochet : (27 September 2016 - 04:36 PM)

You know the planet is in a jam, a diabolical plan of only one man. Louis Leon Paradim an international punk, and his army of 3As are his piece of junk.

@  Telly : (27 September 2016 - 04:26 PM)

for the longest time i thought jungle fiver was called jungle fiBer

@  Bass X0 : (27 September 2016 - 04:21 PM)

Does anybody remember the cartoon Bots Master? I enjoyed the show but looking back on it, most of the robot designs were lame. The only cool designs were Jungle Fiver and Ninjzz although the toys were nothing compared to Transformers of course. I thought the main human characters were decent enough for a show about robots. 

@  Verity Carlo : (27 September 2016 - 02:43 PM)

Although this is odd to me, since I'm fairly sure they are/were good friends.

@  Verity Carlo : (27 September 2016 - 02:42 PM)

Yeah I stopped liking the guy when I found his Twitter.

Social media is the worst thing to happen to fandom, you can now see people whose work you like being jerks or shills on a daily basis, which is worse than a bad interview or two.

@  Robowang : (27 September 2016 - 07:12 AM)

Dirty Jerk Warts?

@  Broadside : (27 September 2016 - 07:05 AM)

Also, I guess he hates IDW Soundwave for not being an emotionless brick like the cartoon version? Man. Any enjoyment of Animated in future is going to be tainted for me by the fact that DJW is the worst kind of boring Geewunner.

@  Broadside : (27 September 2016 - 07:04 AM)

He also hates Action Man for no apparent reason other than "I don't know who this is and I don't care to find out". Which isn't fair, because Ian is the best character in IDW.

@  Jalaguy : (27 September 2016 - 06:47 AM)

DJW was mouthing off about the art for Revolution the other day too, doesn't entirely surprise.

Oof.

@  zephyrX9 : (26 September 2016 - 08:05 PM)

Sipher made a sarcastic remark about Sakamoto's skeeviness. Derrick called him an a**hole, and insulted his art, which was a low, unnecessary blow.

@  Touch My Thighs : (26 September 2016 - 07:43 PM)

it's a vile interruption, chess the scripture way

@  Pennpenn : (26 September 2016 - 03:49 AM)

I've had versions where the issue doesn't come up (or at least doesn't come up in the part I notice the most), but the version that got remastered for Bluray and DVD releases have it.

@  Nevermore : (26 September 2016 - 02:05 AM)

I initially misheard "flying tools of torment" as "we're flyin' into some torment".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 September 2016 - 01:08 AM)

If it's a problem with all released versions, maybe the original audio source was itself damaged?

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 09:30 PM)

I wish they'd relase a remastered version that fixed the audio and included at least had an option to have the text crawl rather than the credits at the start.

@  Telly : (25 September 2016 - 09:27 PM)

tryin to buy the movie from amazon for $20-ish. the price of it has been fluctuating like crazy. not a day has gone by that it hasnt dropped to one price and then gone back up a few hours later. never seen a price fluctuate so much

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 07:57 PM)

Then again, a lot of versions of the movie had pretty bad sound quality, even the most recent blu-rays mess it up in places, so it's not as much our fault if we misheard stuff.

@  Arazyr : (25 September 2016 - 07:28 PM)

When I first heard it, half of it may as well have been in a foreign language, for all I could make out. (Of course, I can say that about most music...)

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 07:14 PM)

I can't remember entirely, and I can't "hear" anything but the actual lyrics now, but I remember "I am born to hurt you, I'll break the boundless sky" as how my brain parsed the first words.

@  Nevermore : (25 September 2016 - 07:01 PM)

So what did you hear?

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 06:39 PM)

I almost completely misinterpreted the lyrics for that song for ages, and when I did find out what they were I thought my idea of the lyrics was better.

@  Nevermore : (25 September 2016 - 06:29 PM)

So apparently the 2016 remake of "Instruments of Destruction" is out. I'm still waiting for an Amazon download to become available, but the clips I heard thus far sound cool. They're using the uncensored lyrics!

Hey guys, look at me popping out of the woodwork to be all needy! icon-arcee.gif

Just this week I've been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. Funny time to be diagnosed, too, after dropping 30 pounds since November due in part to living in an apartment complex that's pretty much a built-in walking trail and rekindling my passionate love affair with fresh veggies and fruit. So - on top of a heaping helping of "keep doing what I'm doing," I'm looking for some quick easy recipes for [fill in lean protein here]. I say "quick easy recipes" because I rather stink at cooking and have not much of a repertoire, and also because my first thought upon getting home from work is generally something like "I don't have the energy to do Serious Cooking tonight."

So... any cooks with suggestions for this non-cook? icon-hotrod.gif

Well I know next to nothing about diabetes, but I'd recommend looking into these.

http://www.laaloosh....uffed-pastries/

I remember reading on the back that they were a creation to be more health conscious, but I can't remember if it was because of diabetes or heart issues. Anyway, if you can eat these, they are really good. But I can't say for certain if they diabetes friendly or not.

If you're looking for quick stuff, then I suggest you get some of those grillmates marinades (http://www.mccormick...uctlanding.aspx). Whenever I feel lazy I just get a pound of chicken, one of those spice packets marinade it for about 20 minutes and then throw it in the oven for 20-30 minutes at 375. Chicken comes out nice and juicy and with little effort. Most of the packets suggest you use oil, but I usually don't bother with it. A little bit of water and apple cider vinegar seems to do it just fine.


For vegetables, I like to get a couple of green peppers and a white onion. Then chop them up and mix together. Add in some ground cumin, basil leaves, and garlic. Bake in the oven for about 20-25 at 350 (saute works too). Might want to add a little bit of water during baking so they don't dry out. Very small amount of water will do.

Another chicken one is cream cheese and chicken. Soften up some cream cheese and throw it on the chicken. Sprinkle garlic and basil on top. Bake for 30 minutes at 350

More chicken. Add cream of mushroom to chicken. Bake it.

Easy fish is just to get a pack of lemon pepper, sprinkle it on the fish and bake.

Those Marinades are very diabetic friendly.. and contain tumeric which is awesome for blood sugar control. For veggies a quick recipe I use:

Fresh Brussel Sprouts and/or Green/Red Peppers
coat lightly in olive oil, and fresh garlic.. Season to taste
Roast in oven at 400 degrees for 20 minutes.

Also.. If you feel the need for potatoes or Fries.. go for the sweet potatoes kind instead.

Biggest tip I can give though is read labels.. and try to go for low sodium.. and despite its labeling... avoid "Sugar free" as sucralose causes bathroom issues

I did a lot of looking at special diabetic recipes and stuff when I was diagnosed, but for the most part I just make smaller portions of the same sort of stuff. It's worked out pretty well.

---Dave

Edit: Addendum - I got most of my benefit from simply tracking carbs and trying to stay within the 12-14 a day window (although I've since crept back up into the high teens). And as many studies have pointed out, any diet where you actually pay close attention to what you eat will have benefits, because you're THINKING. You don't need to switch to a special diabetic diet or anything, just avoid overdoing it on anything carb-laden (not just sugar, starches too) and go with smaller portions. A few things should be cut entirely if you find you can't have them in limited amounts (i.e. I no longer have non-diet soda, because enough to satisfy thirst is also a full meal's worth of carbs!).

One thing I did find made a good substitute even without reducing is to thicken sauces with milled flax seed. It's better for me on a lot of fronts than wheat flour, and pumps up the protein levels some as well.

12-14 what, Dave? Exchanges?

Crypt: I think I would put the brown sugar bourbon one on everything. I'd put it on my salad. If only it didn't have so much sodium! I wonder if they could make a reduced version of that one? Those sprinkle-on seasoning blends look great, too, and maybe a little easier for me to control for sodium.

Thanks for the suggestions, guys.

A lean pork loin marinated in lemon juice, rosemary, garlic salt, pepper, paprika, and a bay leaf or two turns out really nice in the oven. If you're watching salt, go with garlic powder instead. I let the loin soak in a ziplock bag full of the marinade for about 2 hrs, take it out and then put it in the oven at 350 until its cooked through.

When you find yourself standing on the brink of surrender, know that many in the past faced trials such as your own, but overcame them with their great conviction.
No matter the greatness of your desperation, the failures of your efforts, or the injustice of your treatment, at least a few men have stared into the same challenges and emerged victorious from these tests.
Such men are not only a great source of inspiration, but also the very foundation upon which modern society rests.

One "unit" of carbs is 15g of carbohydrates, generally round to the nearest half unit. A meal should be no more than 4 carbs, or 60-65g of carbohydrates, while snacks between meals should be limited to 1 carb (and you *should* have a snack, to keep blood sugar from dropping too low and to make it easier to avoid overeating at meals). When I tried back-calculating my typical carb intake from before the diagnosis, it was over 50, even on days when I didn't eat half a "family size" Doritos bag over the course of an evening.

What about the diet sodas? I know they use artificial sugars, but I never thought to pay attention to the carbo load.

There is no carb content in diet sodas, however the sodium content is frightful in most of them. Diet Rite is about the safest one out there.


Also.. another tip I can give for newly diabetics, is if you aren't already.. start taking a multivitamin with breakfast, and a fiber additive (like benefiber) once a day. Keeping regular is extremely important to blood sugar.

Fiber pills never seemed to do much for me, unfortunately. I finally found something that A) keeps things moving, B) is fairly low-carb, and C) is a filling snack: pumpkin seeds in shell. The main downside is the need to floss afterwards. Well, and the frightful amounts of sodium.

As for diet sodas, the main important thing is that aspartame does skunk out (it has a decay chain into formaldehyde, but will be undrinkably nasty LOOOONG before it gets hazardous to consume...and don't worry about it decaying in your gut, primate digestive systems don't result in aspartame becoming a dangerous byproduct the way rodent digestive systems do). This happens faster when it's hot out. So don't get a 12-pack and leave it in your car for a few sunny days, and do pay attention to the expiration dates.
