Isn't there a thread for that?

@  Nevermore : (21 September 2019 - 05:41 AM)

I took a few hours off from work so I could attend. Actually met two coworkers there.

@  Nevermore : (21 September 2019 - 05:41 AM)

Anyone else here who participated in a climate change rally yesterday?

@  Nevermore : (20 September 2019 - 06:46 PM)

In case anyone's wondering.

@  Nevermore : (20 September 2019 - 06:46 PM)

Also, she pronounces her own name "Zuh-see".

@  TM2-Megatron : (20 September 2019 - 03:04 PM)

I think I'd read a while back she was born in Berlin

@  TM2-Megatron : (20 September 2019 - 03:04 PM)

I thought Zazie Beetz was really fantastic in Deadpool 2. Really looking forward to seeing her in Joker.

@  Liege : (20 September 2019 - 12:05 PM)

Any sightings of Ratchet at U.S. Walgreens yet? A couple of stores around me have recently restocked their toy aisles but no Ratchets yet at those ones.

@  Nevermore : (20 September 2019 - 03:54 AM)

You don't even hear a hint of an accent, and she only very rarely chooses some odd wording where she probably wasn't familiar with the more appropriate alternative due to its relative obscurity.

@  Nevermore : (20 September 2019 - 03:41 AM)

Just watched what's possibly the most relaxed interview ever of a German Youtuber interviewing Zazie while walking around Berlin. Turns out she was born in Berlin and spent quite some time in Germany.

@  Nevermore : (20 September 2019 - 03:39 AM)

Actors and actresses I had no idea speak fluent German, part 4.231: Zazie Beetz from Deadpool 2.

It's too bad it's like this because some of what they're doing with tiny cars is pretty cool, but I'm not willing to sign up for that f-ing hassle.

@  Benbot : (18 September 2019 - 02:13 PM)

At this point I'm trying to decide how much of a markup I'm willing to pay some scalper scum or if I should just say to hell with it.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (18 September 2019 - 02:11 PM)

That is pretty much the constant story with Hot Wheels. Anything you might actually want has most likely been picked clean and marked up.

@  Benbot : (18 September 2019 - 02:02 PM)

I've been watching some Youtube Hot Wheels videos out of boredom and discovered there exists a new car that just came out maybe a month ago that looks just like one I had when I was little, and I've been looking around hoping to get it. Slim picking everywhere, but online there are a slew of sellers asking for 3 and 4x the retail price, plus a hefty shipping markup.

@  Benbot : (18 September 2019 - 01:59 PM)

Oh, that explains the problem I've encountered with finding one little car

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 September 2019 - 01:31 PM)

Oh boy. I work at Target, and literally every single morning, there are two or three guys outside who make a beeline straight to the Hot Wheels.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 September 2019 - 09:55 PM)

I've never read the source material and don't know much about it, but I enjoyed the first film quite a bit, and found the second alright

@  Sabrblade : (17 September 2019 - 09:49 PM)

The first movie was definitely not for me. I flat out hated it. Didn't even bother with the sequel.

@  Maruten : (17 September 2019 - 05:02 PM)

I liked the first movie a lot and enjoyed the original volume of the book, and the way they were developed in parallel was really interesting. It all got super extra unpleasant as soon as they went back though. I don't remember really whether the initial sequels are "good" or not, but either way both the second movie and the second run of the book quickly demonstrated that the property sure wasn't for me.

@  Paladin : (17 September 2019 - 04:45 PM)

i have a real hard time offering praise of anything connected to an utter shitstain like Mark Millar.

@  Rycochet : (17 September 2019 - 01:23 PM)

Kick Ass 2 was okay for what it was, a sequel to a film that was okay, just okay. It had a good performance from Nic Cage while the sequel had Jim Carrey who decided he didn't want to promote it after one of america's regularly scheduled massacres.

@  Benbot : (17 September 2019 - 12:20 PM)

Was Kick Ass 2 really that bad? I never got around to seeing it, but after watching the first movie again the other day, I'm thinking about it.

If you owe, you're expected to actually pay it at the time you file, before they even process your return

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 September 2019 - 11:10 PM)

If you file electronically, I find you usually get your refund within a couple weeks

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 06:22 PM)

Well, lucky it took less than two months for me. For a little over 200 Euros.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 September 2019 - 06:11 PM)

Pretty much, yeah. Canada revenue will be all up your ass if you earn less than 200K and owe tax, but your refund is basically "duke nukem forever".

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 05:34 PM)

Whereas if you overpaid and they have to refund you, they will take their sweet time to let you know.

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 05:34 PM)

Like, here in Germany, if the tax authority responds to your tax report quickly, you can rest assured they want more money.

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 05:33 PM)

Do tax authorities in other countries base their time to respond to filed tax reports on whether they owe or are owed as well?

@  wonko the sane? : (10 September 2019 - 11:13 AM)

Check what the requirements are for your cad program, and try to beat them by about 20%, and understand that software requirements have been stable for a few years: not really keeping up with the advancements in hardware. Unless you're doing something SPECIFIC which requires ludicrous amounts of power, just give your self a cushion on hardware and don't bother going whole hog.

@  Benbot : (10 September 2019 - 10:16 AM)

What I'm currently using is an i5 2018 Surface Laptop. My current desktop is all but dead. I think in the end affordability will win out over specs. I need to use CAD programs, but I'm a student, not a professional.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 September 2019 - 10:06 AM)

Okay. Whats the specs on the I7 and what are you currently using?

@  Benbot : (10 September 2019 - 09:23 AM)

fun and games

@  wonko the sane? : (09 September 2019 - 04:43 PM)

Depends entirely on what you use the computer for.

Why not split the difference and get the other Olsen, or is she too busy being an Avenger?

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

Nope, looks like Deej and Steve broke up after she graduated but will bring him back for some effect. Wondering if it'll be one sided or not. While I do appreciate the callbacks to the catchphrases, I really hope it's not a constant thing.

But damn Stephanie got hot.

Also, her ex-husband said some pretty intriguing things about her in the pilot....

Also, after seeing the sequels to Boy Meets World, Full House, 90210, and Melrose Place...

I am jonesing so hard for a sequel to Family Matters!

I wanna see Laura's and Urkel's kids! A nerdy genius girl and a normal, smart-aleck boy. Eddie can be a single cop in the Aunt Rachel role. Maybe his wife was also a cop who died in the line of duty.

Waldo and Maxine's kid could be the annoying next-door neighbor!

Waldo can be head chef at an updated version of Rachel's Place where the kids hang out.

Don't even change the name. Just make it a new season of the same show after a VERY long hiatus.

Shame Fuller House got panned by critics. If I have to guess, they are probably not Full House fans, since this series is mainly aimed at them.

 

But seeing how this is the same plot with reversed genders, and DJ's husband dying in a different way (will not spoil for those who have yet to watch), it makes me wonder if the Tanner family is actually cursed to this fate.

We watched about half of it tonight. Kimmy actually had a nice dramatic moment with very believable emotion. It was pretty nice how they set up a reverse dynamic with the main character and her sister and best friend (just like Danny and brother-in-law and best friend) with original characters and then boy kids instead of girls. And the kids are pretty good, if a 90s sitcom were something I was interesting in watching nowadays.

But I don't think I'll be clamoring for a season two by the time we get to the end of this. Fuller House (obviously?) relies VERY heavily on the things that the writer loved about Full House. It feels less like Full House and more like a caricature of Full House. They are like Gremlins and Gremlins 2.

It is amazing how well most of the grownups have aged. Danny is the only one that looks significantly different. And even he doesn't really look aged. He's just wearing glasses and a totally different hairdo and...is he trying to be Leonard from Big Bang Theory instead of Danny from Full House?

That was a really fascinating first episode experiment, and while I'm glad it exists, but I doubt I'll watch the rest of the series.

When does Bojack Horseman season 3 land?

While I watched the original series from time to time, I didn't watch it religiously nor do I believe I've seen every episode.  So I'd describe myself as a casual fan, at most.  It began airing when I was just four, so I think I've only seen the later seasons, probably those taking place in the 90s.

 

I've watched the first 4 episodes of this, and I have to admit it's a cute show.  I haven't read any reviews of it, but if it's being panned I can only imagine that the majority of the critics just aren't anywhere near the target demographic.  Most who were hardcore fans of the original will probably love this, and many late 80s/early 90s kids who were only casual viewers would likely enjoy it on some level, as well.  By no means would I like to see all sitcoms return to this 25 year-old style, but there's a part of me that really enjoys seeing something from my early youth revived like this.  Particularly considering how faithful the style is to the original.

 

 

But damn Stephanie got hot.

 

And how. I must have had good taste as a kid, too, as I vaguely recall having a crush on her when I watched back in the day.

I've not watched it yet, but to me the idea that its a 'modern' 90's sitcom seems like that'd be the main draw in its novelty. Of course not all shows should be like they were decades ago, but every now and then a show trying to capture the magic of a previous version or era is something that helps its stand out from every other show of its type. For example, if there were to be a Superhero show that tried to capture the campy nature of the 60's batman, that would standout against all the drama heavy superhero shows currently on.

Binged through the whole thing. It's amazing how much they drink and the frequency of the sex jokes.

Critics hated the original Full House, s hating this show as well shouldn't be a surprise. And the critics aren't wrong...and yet that doesn't make it a totally enjoyable show, nonetheless.

I would say the main flaw in this show is that D.J., who is the center of the show, is the only non-interesting charactee in the whole show. She is just a walking out-of-touch wholesome single mom steretype, whose only quirk is to constantly say "Oh my...lanta!"


If there was a second season on right now, I could easily binge through an all-nighter. I hope the show does well enough for more episodes.
