I hate when the spicy version of something isn't spicy!

@  Pennpenn : (20 June 2019 - 08:43 AM)

I hate it when the spicy version of something is in almost identical packaging to the non-spicy version. Especially when I don't notice until I've got home.

Only if the customer reviews give it all high marks.

Are they going to call it "I-Did-Nawtflix?"

@  unluckiness : (18 June 2019 - 12:48 AM)

I see, so what the world needs is a Tommy Wiseau streaming service.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2019 - 11:02 PM)

Well, Conan did start the trend that resulted in a wave of Barbarian films in the mid to late 80s

@  MEDdMI : (17 June 2019 - 10:57 PM)

I keep wanting to read Corman as Conan

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2019 - 10:29 PM)

There needs to be some streaming service that caters to connoisseurs of schlock. Otherwise, a huge part of our cultural history will be wiped away. While many of these films are available on blu-ray, with more coming out each month, it's good they're also available for the streaming crowd.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2019 - 10:18 PM)

Corman did make an impressive number of barbarian films back in the day. If impressive is the word

@  Steevy Maximus : (17 June 2019 - 08:11 PM)

I mean, where else are you going to see the entire Roger Corman barbarian fantasy library (legally) for free?

@  Steevy Maximus : (17 June 2019 - 08:09 PM)

Oh Tubi TV, you are a haven for terrible films. Netflix, Hulu and Crackle all push for mainstream appeal and prestige, you got the guts to have ready access to dregs even the SyFy channel wouldn't air

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 01:33 PM)

Also you have Bayonetta and a bunch of Fire Emblem people.

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 01:33 PM)

...I mean, Tales character. Probably up to/for it.

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 June 2019 - 01:26 PM)

But what if I need to kill a god? Or several of them?

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 11:25 AM)

Kratos is allowed, but only the one from Tales of Symphonia

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 June 2019 - 10:56 AM)

So no Kratos?

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 10:42 AM)

In any case I'd rather have another Fire Emblem character than another character from a PlayStation exclusive game who teeeeeechnically was in a spinoff.

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 10:39 AM)

Kong had his name on the games first, but Mario was the protagonist first. It's debatable.

@  Rycochet : (17 June 2019 - 10:33 AM)

Wouldn't Mario be the one spun off from the Donkey Kong franchise, given that Kong was first?

@  Pennpenn : (17 June 2019 - 05:19 AM)

I would count Wario and Yoshi, but not DK (might be because I wasn't even aware DK was spun off from the Mario franchise until I was in my mid-20s, but whatever)

@  unluckiness : (17 June 2019 - 04:13 AM)

But to be fair, Corrin is the only one I particularly dislike and it's really more boredom due to their blandness as characters

@  unluckiness : (17 June 2019 - 04:09 AM)

It would depend on whether or not you count DK, Wario and Yoshi as part of the Mario franchise or separate. Scratch that, there are more Mario characters even with just the mushroom symbol people but it's a close call.

@  Pennpenn : (17 June 2019 - 02:55 AM)

You'd figure Fire Emblem would have enough characters in Smash. Kinda feels like there's more FE characters than Mario characters.

@  unluckiness : (16 June 2019 - 01:20 AM)

And for hug's sake, I hope that the new Fire Emblem's PC isn't one of the DLC

@  Sean Whitmore : (15 June 2019 - 04:11 PM)

Smash Bros could never touch a new franchise again, and I'd still have laundry lists of side characters and villains I'd love to see included.

@  MEDdMI : (14 June 2019 - 10:38 PM)

I would unironically love Tingle in Smash.

@  Paladin : (14 June 2019 - 02:06 PM)

they HAVE to put Travis Touchdown in at some point now, right???

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 June 2019 - 01:24 PM)

Right after Shaq.

@  Locoman : (14 June 2019 - 12:36 PM)

When will we get Bluster Kong in Smash?

@  unluckiness : (14 June 2019 - 08:20 AM)

The last three DLC characters are Tingle, Charles Barkley and L Tetris block with Reverse L Tetris block as an Echo fighter.

@  MEDdMI : (14 June 2019 - 08:09 AM)

Pipe dream Smash entry: The Prince from the Katamari series. :D

@  MEDdMI : (14 June 2019 - 06:35 AM)

The space/time around them gets frozen too! ....or something.

@  unluckiness : (14 June 2019 - 06:01 AM)

I still want to find out how freezing people suspends them in midair

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 June 2019 - 02:45 AM)

We really need Subzero or Scorpion in Smash. Violence aside, they are pretty big gaming icons as well.

@  Steevy Maximus : (13 June 2019 - 08:18 PM)

Given Nintendo's relationship with Tecmo, I'm still waiting for Ryu Hyabusa

@  TheMightyMol... : (13 June 2019 - 07:19 PM)

I'm still waiting for Doomguy.

@  Steevy Maximus : (13 June 2019 - 06:47 PM)

I just started watching High School DxD (don't judge me...) and I caught on the Nintendo Treehouse some request Rias for Smash lol

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 June 2019 - 11:25 AM)

I have having to watch a video to find out why someone wanted me to watch the video

@  Nevermore : (11 June 2019 - 04:58 PM)

I remember when the TPB for The Dark Age 2 was delayed for an entire year...

@  Trpodeca : (11 June 2019 - 03:55 AM)

I just wish they'd release the Astro City paperback trades.

@  Nevermore : (10 June 2019 - 05:31 AM)

As an open-minded heterosexual, I wouldn't mind seeing more of that.

@  Nevermore : (10 June 2019 - 05:29 AM)

Currently in the process of re-reading Kurt Busiek's Astro City. Big props for the issue featuring the "Dancing Master" and its portrayal of non-stereotypical gay characters.

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 June 2019 - 05:25 AM)

Don't phone charges often contain special rapid charge circuitry, though? The voltage might be higher too, given the selfie stick probably has a very basic battery.

20 minutes of bi's, tri's and shoulders with the bands.  Curls, Hammer curls Lawnmowers, Chair dips, lat flys, reverse tricept extentions and some ACL work to help with the old man popping and clicking in the joints.  Feeling the burn..  Then again I did a pyramid set with the Curl's and hammers.

Took the protein drink after my workout. It was chocolate flavored and, guh, it made me crave for MORE chocolate! I'm going to drop a cocoa tablet into it, hehe.

Didn't eat too good tho. Ice cream and fries and stuff.

Ive been doing a lot of intervals on the treadmill lately.  Wanted to get in a really good workout today with at least an hour of cardio but its raining here in Vegas...super weird.  Also, the moving company has an inspector coming over tomorrow to see how many boxes they need to bring when they load up my stuff.  This is the great thing about the military.  When I move, they send in movers who do everything for me.  When I get to where Im going, they drop it all off, set up some of the furniture and everything and it doesnt cost me a dime.  Only thing I need to do is pack up some Transformers....sorry, you are not getting your hands on my G1 Victory Saber set along with the rest of my G1 collection.

Alright weight updates are going to be a bit farther apart.  The scale I had access to went to South Carolina with my friend Rich....   Hitting Chest and Back tomorrow (Figure I know enough Push-up variations and Band exercises for back to get a 40 min workout in).  Tuesday will be Legs since I'm off wednesday.  Wednesday will be Shoulder's Bi's and Tris.  I have an opening shift thursday so I might hit some cardio when I get done with work, and Friday will be total body.) I gotta do this myself now, but the wife wants me to keep doing it.  She doesn't want to see my hard work go to waste.

Thank you. Despite being long and miserable, I was out specifically to accomplish stuff. The exercise was a happy side effect and I don't count it towards the total.

If I counted in all the walking I actually did (since 90% of it is work related, the rest is ice cream.) We'd have doubled up on the miles last year. :)

Got a 30 min workout in today. Banged it out in the living room with no problems.  Did a whole bunch of push-ups and back exercises with the band and tossed in a quick five minute Ab routine.  Think I'm going to drop that in to each of my workouts so I work Abs/core everyday.  Didn't take any breaks so the intensity was up.  Also if you can get down to the pharmacy at your local market I recommend getting the one a day Vita-craves.  It's the only Vitamin I've ever taken consistantly since they are gummies and easy to chew and swallow.  I've been taking them since late november and by now I've usually had crazy wicked colds.  I can say they've helped keep me from getting sick when the rest of RR had this year's "BIG FLU"  (I never get the flu shots)  

Another recommendation is to get yourself a container of Pre or Post workout stuff.  I'm using the stuff Rich left me and it really does help (It's stuff you can find in a lot of sports drinks but also BCAA's (Amino acids the basic building blocks of Protein) Helps with energy and focus.  They can be pricey though that's why I'm thankful Rich gave me a couple that he wasn't using anymore (he was using Protein shakes w/ Creatine) 

 

You don't need the Sups, but I have a lot more energy after my workout when I take them.

Also, It kicked my ass today, my own sweat hugging burns!

Liquid hate! LOL! Luv it :)

Forgot my shaker at home yesterday so didn't get my chocolate protein fix until late night. Was a little miserable at having no net in the evening that I didn't go have a workout, guh. Mother is sabotaging my diet with donuts and rice and pizza and cheese bread, ugh.

But I did start the week by waking up early to jump rope and eat an apple-y breakfast so I have that going for me, which is nice.

So last year, I set some pretty lofty goals and achieved none of them really. This year I am still about the same weight or even heavier than I was last year. So this year, I am going to set a more reasonable goal, 229! I started this year off at 258.8lbs, and I am already down to 254.8lbs, so I am on my way! Yesterday's brutal work out helped towards that.

 

We went to the gym, did 17 minutes on the ARC Machine(stepper mixed with an eliptical) to get a good warm up and some cardio. Then did some Knee raises, followed by the oblique machine, Barbell curls, Crunches, situps, and ending with some tricep pressdown. After getting a protein shake, we went outside and spent two hours fighting wisteria vines that had overrun my fence. After that, we were wiped and went out for some well deserved dinner!

 

Okay, throwing in my walks for the year plus the ARC machine yesterday.

57.18 + 14.04 = 71.22 miles!

Alright, misused the Keg Scale at work today and the new body weight measurement for me is 280.4.....  So I lost that holiday 4 and an additional 3lbs this week, and seeing as my chest and back were sore from Chest day I'm sure some of that is inflamation weight.  WOOT.  Tomorrow is cardio... seeing as I am doing a three day split and stacked to strength days back to back.   Thursday I'll do Bi's Tri's and Shoulders.
