The music, if you'd even call it that, adds to the creepy atmosphere. Apparently it was recorded using sounds created in a real nuclear power plant of the same type as Chernobyl.

@  Nevermore : (15 December 2019 - 04:04 PM)

In case you haven't seen it yet, I highly recommend the HBO mini-series "Chernobyl", which is about, well, you know. It's very intense and not for the faint-heartet. I'd say it's more scary than any horror flick, because (despite some artistic liberties taken with the behavior of some of the characters, and the timeline for some events), it's eerily real.

@  Sabrblade : (15 December 2019 - 10:51 AM)

Hey, at least you baked a cake in the bathroom. Not many can attest to that. :p

@  wonko the sane? : (14 December 2019 - 05:51 PM)

Nope. Forgot entirely, had to make another trip.

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 December 2019 - 04:04 PM)

Well, did you get water?

@  wonko the sane? : (14 December 2019 - 01:56 PM)

Went to the bathroom, shaved, baked a cake... wait, I only got up to get some water...

@  unluckiness : (14 December 2019 - 09:01 AM)

That's a common misconception. You see compared to the first run, it's a new mold.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (14 December 2019 - 03:27 AM)

Wouldn't that just add packaging authenticity? :D

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 December 2019 - 01:44 AM)

I read a anecdote of someone recently receiving a Glacialord with mold because apparently online stores' warehouses have been sitting on Fansproject products like that for years.

Unlike many of his peers, Morton diesn't seem to have gone out of his way to try and take every drug going so he's aged remarkably well.

Doesn't seem to have been a market for it, which is too bad, because it perfectly does what it sets out to do.

Morten Harket of A-ha might have aged 35 years on the outside, but his voice is still pretty much the same as it was in 1984. That's some great training and exercise for you.

Cream cheese has to be on a bagel or crackers.

(for example: I like Swiss cheese on sandwiches, but find it merely tolerable by itself)

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:30 PM)

I mean are you eating it by itself? With crackers? On a sandwich?

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 December 2019 - 04:48 PM)

They were looking for Skids, but the animators forgot he existed again.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 02:58 PM)

He regrouped with Omega Supreme, the Dinobots, Skyfire and the Protectobots.

@  Benbot : (11 December 2019 - 08:20 AM)

Did he get infected with the rest of the Autobots or did he smartly remain off-planet?

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 December 2019 - 05:38 AM)

He really just went to the beach for a couple of days, then called it in. Who's gonna follow up on it?

Oh, we are pretty good at "forgetting" about that. Insisting on sending people home on their overtime, THEN suddenly rushing to do the "backlog" stuff when it's really overdue.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 December 2019 - 05:43 PM)

I've yet to find an organization which didn't have a backlog of "stuff" that needs to be done, but isn't important enough to put on the schedule proper.

I'm pretty sure you've already mentioned this before. Especially that last one.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:05 AM)

That can be fun if you're strong-willed enough. "Hey, you want to go home? Overtime reduction, there's nothing to do..." - "Nah, not today. I want to work."

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:04 AM)

This applies to the field of work as well. Meaning, your boss orders you to show up for a full shift, you show up on time and are absolutely willing to work, and then your boss realizes he has no work for you, your boss has to pay you for a full shift even if you don't work at all.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:03 AM)

Fun fact: German law has a concept named "default in acceptance", which postulates that if there is a "service for payment" contract, the party that should provide the service correctly offers their due service, and the party that should pay fails to accept the service within due time, the second party still has to pay the first party even if there was no service delivered.

If it's seasonal affective disorder, check with your doc about vitamin D supplements.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:46 PM)

That's what I was thinking too, It's the christmas rush and if that's not stressful enough the cold weather can also impact mental health.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 12:41 PM)

Might be a stupid question given the comment, BUT: have you done anything outside the ordinary lately? Might just be a stress reaction.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:29 PM)

I've experienced sleep paralysis with ghostly images and similar things in the past and can snap out of it through moving my fingers. I've definitely hallucinated before and members of both sides of the family have had similar experience, some suffered forms of mental instability in two cases schizophrenia.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:47 AM)

So... either a hallucination or night terrors. Are you prone to this kind of thing?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:55 PM)

It kept repeating until I sat up.

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:54 PM)

I've been up since three and when sheepish I was hallucinating something knocking twice against my bedroom door.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 December 2019 - 06:58 PM)

Then repaint Apeface and Snapdragon as Transmetal Optimus Primal and Megatron. It's crazy enough to work.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 December 2019 - 05:32 PM)

Moral imperative.

@  Nevermore : (07 December 2019 - 05:13 PM)

Wishful thinking, rumor or leak?

Can we all just appreciate how fantastic it is that the most powerful hero in the MCU is going to be a woman? It's honestly one of the best choices Marvel's made, and they've made a hell of a lot of good choices with the MCU.

 

Well, I'm assuming Vision should be pretty competitive, power level-wise.  Although we all know he's going to get jobbed once Thanos shows up.

 

Wanda's no slouch on the power level department either.  I don't feel the MCU is particularly lacking in strong female characters at any rate.  Although I do kinda wish Gamora was given more to work with in Guardians.  Didn't really do much to exemplify her top-assassin status.  Hopefully Vol. 2 gives her more to do.  Also how Nebula and Mantis factor in to the heirarchy.

Ehhn. I was hoping they'd draw on some of the older issues, or maybe the current run; to me, Carol's "defining trait" is her anger issues and violent tendencies. That was there in the KSD run, but not as much as I would've liked.

Still, I prrrrobably shouldn't be surprised. And at least she's got something relevant to her role - apparently Evangeline Lily was given The Irredeemable Ant-Man to read.

That's the biggest problem that I have with creating a "Captain Marvel" film starring Carol Danvers is that Carol - this Captain Marvel - is the sum of years of stories, many of which defining what she has finally become today. I don't know how you can specifically create a story that includes her history without it being the same convoluted mess that her history. That is, without it having the same basic plot as the Green Lantern film.

 

Edit: oops, Danvers not Ferris.

I'd be okay with short hair. It's professional, within regs for an Air Force officer, and long hair would be a liability in a close-quarters fight.

So apparently the screenwriter is concerned about some elements of the characters history... because "her origin story is similar to Green Lantern."

Alien comes to Earth, transfers power to a human, dies.*

Which is the only way you can really do Carol's classic origin unless you want to have Mar-Vell operating as Captain Marvel before Carol.

*I mean, TECHNICALLY Mar-Vell's powers weren't transferred to Carol, it was unrelated Kree DNA, but...

Its too bad there's not a concept of Kree DNA being in humans around the world introduced already that only takes the exposure to some sort of, I don't know, alien crystal to awaken said powers and could be used to introduce Carol here.  I mean that would take some sort of TV show about Agents of some sort of Shield on, I don't know, ABC or something.  It's too bad nothing like that exists in the MCU.

She's an air force pilot who gets her powers from an alien hero who later dies, leaving her to take up his name.

 

I mean, technically Mar-Vell didn't die until decades later, but you'd probably compress that for a movie.

I don't know...

Alien Policeman crashes on Earth. Chooses a test pilot to take over his job and special weapon. Test pilot goes into space and becomes space policeman/hero.

Vs

Alien invaders attack Earth. Air Force pilot trying to stop them gets caught in one of their machines exploding and comes out of it with genetically enhanced superpowers and kicks their butts.

I think it's pretty safely different.


-ZacWilliam, obviously you super downplay or leave out Mar-Vell all together as he's not pre-established in the MCU, but I don't see much similarity there.

You're looking for the differences, not the similarities, which I outlined.

 

It's enough that I imagine Marvel wants to make it more unique.  More specifically I think they want to avoid going through the beats of the Green Lantern movie from 2011.

The differences are her entire origin story, powers, and nature as a character.

The similarities are a few very tiny and easily left out superficial bits.

it's likely the simple justification for whatever changes they want to make.

 

Not that it's necessarily a good or a bad thing either way.

 

Marvel is making a movie called Captain Marvel  I can understand them wanting this to be something special.

You could pretty much exactly do the current version of her comic uniform and it wouldn't look out of place in MCU:

3047641-inline-s-3-first-look-at-the-new

 

The biggest question for me is going to be: "Where does the suit come from?" Is it something that she fashions, or is it somehow imbued upon her? If it's the latter, then it needs to look more alien, closer to something we'd see in Guardians than Avengers. Then again, a lot of Gunn's Gardians designs - specifically thinking of the Nova Corps - don't look very alien, so I don't know how you can show that.

 

 

Honestly? I'd be fine with her having been kidnapped by the ravagers ala Quill and given the powers before the movie started. We always have a precedent for alien abduction, might as well use it to save time.

 

It either that or *gasp* an agents of shield link where they find her in a Kree science lab.


It's a Newcomic (apparently)
