Everything's out of control.

*cough* w h a t?

@  Donocropolis : (19 January 2021 - 09:48 AM)

Cause your friends don't dance, and if they don't dance they ain't no friends of mine

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 January 2021 - 08:52 AM)

You could leave your friends behind.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (18 January 2021 - 09:43 PM)

You could if you really wanted to.

@  -LittleAutob... : (18 January 2021 - 01:35 PM)

@  -LittleAutob... : (18 January 2021 - 01:35 PM)

......... all wounds heal through God. *walks off*

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 January 2021 - 01:01 PM)

Let me know when the WEAPONs wake up.

@  tigerhawk : (18 January 2021 - 05:18 AM)

Or is the wound the Earth healing.

@  unluckiness : (18 January 2021 - 03:32 AM)

Healing is just destroying the wound

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 January 2021 - 06:08 PM)

But eventually destroys everything.

@  tigerhawk : (17 January 2021 - 05:03 PM)

Heals many wounds

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 January 2021 - 02:03 PM)

Time.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2021 - 07:53 AM)

I dunno, maybe. I'm not clairvoyant either...

@  Nevermore : (17 January 2021 - 04:30 AM)

Covid?

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2021 - 09:50 PM)

At this point, if I'm going to die then it won't be the wait what killed me. It didn't help any, mind you, but it's not what got me.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 January 2021 - 09:37 PM)

Technically we are all literally dying to play with our next figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2021 - 05:36 PM)

I am figuratively dying to play with that cheetor.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2021 - 04:39 PM)

Still waiting for my box from BBTS to arrive.

@  tigerhawk : (16 January 2021 - 04:29 PM)

Kingdoms is fantabulous and it's only the first wave.

@  tigerhawk : (12 January 2021 - 12:10 PM)

My Super Collection Megatron always had two left legs and I just discovered my Thrilling 30 Crosscut has two right hips.

@  Nevermore : (11 January 2021 - 07:56 PM)

Fortunately, it's only Netflix Hound, so not really much of a loss here.

@  Nevermore : (11 January 2021 - 07:55 PM)

So it's been a while since I've had a misassembled Transformers toy.

@  Echowarrior : (11 January 2021 - 10:02 AM)

More Micromasters would be welcome.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 January 2021 - 06:15 AM)

Instructions unclear, have more sports cars.

@  tigerhawk : (11 January 2021 - 01:57 AM)

Or they could make the other Micromasters of the teams they half assed.

@  ▲ndrusi : (10 January 2021 - 11:20 PM)

There should be a box set of eight Stakeouts.

@  Bass X0 : (10 January 2021 - 08:27 PM)

There should be a box-set of Thrust, Dirge and Ramjet. But I'm not expecting it.

@  Nevermore : (10 January 2021 - 07:51 PM)

I hope there are re-releases this year!

@  tigerhawk : (10 January 2021 - 03:59 PM)

I hope there's rereleases of Earthrise Ramjet, Dirge and Ratchet next year.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 January 2021 - 07:51 AM)

Oh no, he was loved. I'd argue he could have had a better life physically, but he was loved. Deeply.

@  Telly : (08 January 2021 - 01:42 AM)

as long s/he gave love and was loved, it was a good life

@  Echowarrior : (07 January 2021 - 11:10 PM)

Poor puppy. Poor kid.

@  CORVUS : (07 January 2021 - 03:04 PM)

My condolences :(

@  wonko the sane? : (07 January 2021 - 10:45 AM)

So: My sisters dog just had a heart attack and died... while her 12 year old son was walking him. Welcome to 2021 everybody!

@  Dekafox : (04 January 2021 - 07:24 PM)

Except they're Deceptican'ts usually.

@  Devcon : (04 January 2021 - 05:17 PM)

Depending on which dub: Either Decepticons or Decepticans.

@  Bass X0 : (04 January 2021 - 05:03 PM)

Deception is the French word for disappointment. What does that make the Decepticons in France?

@  Echowarrior : (03 January 2021 - 11:29 PM)

We're just tiny little specks, about the size of Mickey Rooney.

@  TheMightyMol... : (03 January 2021 - 04:33 PM)

It's a great big universe, and we're all really puny.

@  Rycochet : (03 January 2021 - 01:30 PM)

That's orbiting at nineteen miles a second, so it's reckoned, a sun that is the source of all our power

@  Rycochet : (03 January 2021 - 01:30 PM)

Just remember that you're standing on a planet that's evolving and revolving at nine hundred miles an hour.

@  TM2-Megatron : (02 January 2021 - 11:57 PM)

relative to the speed that it's swirling around the centre of the galaxy, its rotation is fairly slow

@  PlutoniumBoss : (02 January 2021 - 09:31 PM)

I'd like to make myself believe that planet Earth turns slowly.

@  -LittleAutob... : (02 January 2021 - 07:21 PM)

The Earth moving gave us 2021.

@  ▲ndrusi : (02 January 2021 - 10:50 AM)

It does that.

@  tigerhawk : (02 January 2021 - 10:11 AM)

I think the Earth is moving.

@  Nevermore : (02 January 2021 - 06:35 AM)

Sunday evenings are awesome. Looking at the clock at 8 PM and thinking "I still have plenty of time before going to bed..."

@  Nevermore : (02 January 2021 - 06:33 AM)

Now I've been working permanent late shift for almost three years. Don't regret it one bit. One of the rare cases where the needs of the company overlap with my own preferences.

@  Nevermore : (02 January 2021 - 06:32 AM)

Before the permanent late shift was introduced three years ago (which I volunteered for as soon as the form became available), I always tended to plan my vacation for early shift weeks. Since the majority of the people in most departments prefer to work early shift and thus tended to plan their vacation for late shift weeks, there were usually enough slots available for me to get my request fulfilled.

That was awesome! Though I'm worried about that washer. That can't be a good sign. But that was damn impressive.

I don't particularly care for the original song at all, but I like this cover.

(Also, thank you for posting the Joan Jett cover of "Dirty Deeds" a little while back, Destron; I've since come to find that I like it better than the AC/DC version.)

There was a thread in General Discussion a month or show showing off the new Microsoft Surface tablet, with the demo video featuring this fantastic cover of Pure Imagination:

 

 

Changes a somewhat wistful little ditty into something dramatic and awe-inspiring.

It would probably easier to list which of Jasmine Thompson's covers I don't like better than the originals. I love her voice.

I know OP posted the Johnny Cash version of this on the previous page. But since part of the reason for this topic is to be able to compare and contrast (plus I just listened to the NIN and Johnny Cash versions side by side)...I thought I'd post both. Of course, language warning for the use of "shit." But considering we can post that uncensored anyway...

A couple days ago I started playing Final Fantasy XV. I only played to the first convenient save point since I want to finish other games before really digging into a new one.

But that's beside the point. During the opening title screen where they're pushing a car, there's this totally fabulous cover of Stand By Me. It got me obsessing over this new cover version and the original version. I've listened to both the past couple days and of course that led me to watching the movie tonight.

So now I have this idea in my head of "what versions of songs do people prefer, the original or the cover?"

I don't know how many videos can be imbedded in a single post...so I'm just going to post vids of this song to start off. As the discussion takes off (if the discussion takes off) feel free to bring up other songs.

A few ideas include: American Woman (Guess Who vs. Lenny Kravitz), I Love Rock and Roll (The Arrows vs. Joan Jett).

What ever you want to come up with. But first I have to start it off with this. Which is better?

The original (Ben E. King)


The Cover (Florence + The Machine)


I can't choose to be honest. Hug pride! Either one of these will bring me to tears.

So once upon a time I bought the Star Trek III soundtrack and found an interesting surprise.

 

For reference, here's the standard Main Theme:

 

And here's what was at the end of the soundtrack:

 

Yes, that is a very 80's rock-ish remix of the theme which somehow manages to be awesome in it's own right, maybe moreso than the actual theme.

 

I've never heard of Group 87, who composed it, but they apparently have a bit of a discography online!

Well, anyone who's been following the quotes page or the video game section can probably tell what my new obsession is (The Last of Us). I haven't even finished the first game yet (not even close), but I saw the trailer for the second game and...damn!

Anyway, there's a point to this. In a departure from the norm, I'll start with the cover first:

Ashley Johnson (voice actress for Ellie in The Last of Us). Skip to 1:05. Warning, disturbing images.
