Bass_X0 will return after these messages ^^^

WHATAMIFIGHTINGFOOOOOOOOARRGH

@  -LittleAutob... : (09 July 2020 - 02:06 PM)

Okay?

@  Otaku : (09 July 2020 - 07:47 AM)

@TheMightyMollusk Ah, but the series itself has pronounced "Bass" both ways. ;)  Oh, 90s English Capcom video game voice acting...

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 July 2020 - 03:14 AM)

Looking at my Titan Returns collection I can see they realised they didn't have to paint the Titan Masters after wave one, lazy bums.

@  Maruten : (08 July 2020 - 09:13 PM)

No, I'm going with "fish".

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 July 2020 - 04:19 PM)

He stated that it's in reference to the Mega Man character, so it follows the series' tradition of music names.

@  Cybersnark : (08 July 2020 - 03:59 PM)

The real question is if it's "bass" as in music or "bass" as in the fish.

@  Otaku : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Well, at least now I know how to pronounce @Bass X0 's screen name. ^^'  Rather, I think I'd just forgotten.  In my defense, it really does look like an emoticon or maybe just "decoration", which is what a lot of folks add to their screen names online.  Usually because someone has the name they really want. XD

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Extremely unimpressed with your idea that someone making a negative observation you don't like means they "got triggered."

@  NotVeryKnightly : (08 July 2020 - 11:16 AM)

You know somebody asked "And this would be in relation to... what exactly?"

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 11:15 AM)

Its because someone got triggered over my random musings instead of just ignoring them. If I read one of your comments that is of no relevance or interest to me, I don't feel the need to say so.

@  -LittleAutob... : (08 July 2020 - 10:56 AM)

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 08:34 AM)

Bazro.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (08 July 2020 - 06:34 AM)

It could be Bass 10-0

@  Nevermore : (08 July 2020 - 06:11 AM)

How do you pronounce yourself? "Bass Ex-O" or "Bass Ex-Zero"?

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 03:23 AM)

I did almost go with Vile Bass X0, because Vile is cool too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 July 2020 - 08:34 PM)

@  ▲ndrusi : (07 July 2020 - 04:16 PM)

Bass XD

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 03:43 PM)

And its not Bass XO, its Bass X0, as in Bass, X and Zero from the Mega Man series.

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 July 2020 - 02:33 PM)

@Trpodeca :( :(

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 July 2020 - 02:32 PM)

Thats what a gray rock is? Then I'm not one.

@  Trpodeca : (07 July 2020 - 02:12 PM)

Man I just learnt about what seemed like a really cool show, only to realize it was a dream and it dosen't really exist.

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 01:02 PM)

Just something I read that I wanted to share. I heard "gray rock" mentioned in a video, so I looked it up and that was the definition.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 July 2020 - 12:20 PM)

It's a fancy way of saying "Ignore annoying people".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (07 July 2020 - 12:15 PM)

Bass XO has a habit of pasting random drivel here as if doing so were profound.

@  wonko the sane? : (07 July 2020 - 11:30 AM)

And this would be in relation to... what exactly?

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 11:25 AM)

"One strategy for dealing with a narcissist or sociopath is to act like a "gray rock," meaning that you become uninteresting and unresponsive. You don't feed their needs for drama or attention. You don't show emotion, say anything interesting, or disclose any personal information"

@  Nevermore : (06 July 2020 - 07:23 PM)

@  Maximus Ambus : (05 July 2020 - 01:10 AM)

Today is the 24th anniversary of the day we fought off an alien invasion with the help of Will Smith.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 10:41 AM)

Oh the end of the Ottoman Empire of course.

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 July 2020 - 10:14 AM)

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 08:14 AM)

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 08:12 AM)

@  Nevermore : (03 July 2020 - 06:59 AM)

But sure. Criticise how media handles things and none of that counts apparently. Fictional characters steered by multinational companies out to sell lots of merch mean more than real people...

That is a staggering level of hyperbole. I know you're just making a snarky point, but FFS.

Do you honestly believe that anyone here is ignorant of the fact that movies are made to make money? That merchandising is a vital part of franchises of this type?

Most of us are transformers fans, and the ones who don't understand these basic facts should probably have their cards revoked. They're are also few and far between around these parts.

Ugh. Just hugging UGH.
What I believe is that there's a valid reason that outside its own walls this forum has a reputation for being sanctimonious and oversensitive.
Oh, you are ABSOLUTELY right. Allspark is well-known as the oversensitive jump-down-your-throat forum. It's a limited number of people here, and it's not necessarily the intended atmosphere, but a LOT of people stay away because of that reputation. I have heard it in numerous facebook groups (yes, I know), from a number of friends, and from multiple people met at toy shows and toy stores. The subject of "where do you hang out or get your info online?" usually comes up and I always have to respond with a defense that isn't exactly ironclad.

I like it here or I wouldn't come, but yeah, that rep is real among a lot of folks.

And again, for the record, I am just verifying that the reputation exists. I am not giving my opinion on the reasons for the reputation nor am I supporting the people who stay away because of it.

(And the fact that I have to type that last paragraph so certain people don't start debating me kinda backs everything before it...)

Got my Target 4K today.

 

Wish I could say the same, but I'm going to wait until either this weekend or next, when I'm down in Buffalo, to pick it up.

 

Because I have no desire to own this thing, curiously titled "Captain Captaine Marvel Marvel"

Also the Toy Story 4Ks, as they're also bilingual abominations.

 

 

this is as good a place as any to ask; do 4k players play regular and blu rays? ive been thinking of upgrading but i dont want to rebuy my blu ray collection...

That seems a bit of an overreach. Throughout the years I feel like we've had a very moderate progressive group here. There are certainly those who can't see out of their bubble and refuse to acknowledge any deviation from their narrative, but those exist everywhere and are few and far between here. 

 

My experience is that for the most part, almost everyone here has been very intelligent both intellectually and emotionally. Enough to have reasoned discussions and listen to different points of view that might not align 100% with their own. They are also reasonable enough to assume that not everyone is going to have the exact same opinions about everything even if they want the same things. 

 

If it seems like an echo chamber in here, that's mostly due to the fact that as a community supports LGBTQ people, and is in fact comprised of people from all walks of life, most of the bad actors have been purged years ago. Opinions are welcome, hate speech is not and never has been. 

 

I mean it also sorta feels like an echo chamber because at times it is. I still remember the P&R school shooting thread in which I think it was 3 days after a user got told that it was laughable that P&R was an echo chamber, one of the mods basically went and said the equivalent of "I'm a mod and I don't want to see anymore pro-gun replies in it. You can take that to <insert gun thread in general discussion> "

indeed. and it wouldn't be so bad if there was intelligent open debate when a slightly different perspective popped up... but that isn't normally the case... lol Somebody who can't handle being disagreed with runs to a mod and cries and then somebody gets told to shut up and conform under threat of ban.. oooh and then there's the shunning. 

 

flame-bating use to be a crime, now its an act of aggression akin to when your little sister would poke you in the back seat just to get you in trouble for poking her back.

So here's a thing for us. In this movie Fury tells Carol he can't eat toast if it's cut diagonally. Does this also apply to sandwiches, because he clearly cuts his diagonally at Hawkeye's place in Age of Ultron?!

You can't write a critical review of a movie you just saw the first 15 minutes of.  My wife didn't like this movie either.  It's not for everyone.  But you have to actually watch it if you want to evaluate it.

Oh, you can ignore me all you want.

Doesn't mean I'm wrong though.

 

Indeed, ignoring you doesn't make you wrong. You being wrong is what makes you wrong.

 

Trying to give a true review a film of which you've only watched 10 minutes is intellectually dishonest, and just plain childish.
