@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 October 2019 - 10:36 PM)

Ex-Bundeswehr personnel, eh? Fascinating.

@  Pinkcolliebot : (20 October 2019 - 09:43 PM)

TF Roll Out Hot Rod's Presentation is coming real soon!!

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 01:05 PM)

So whenever he addresses his troops, he keeps cracking jokes. Sometimes these jokes are about the blunders he himself had made in his speech the previous day.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 01:01 PM)

At the moment, I'm blessed with a pretty nice superior. He's got a military background, but he takes an oddly entertaining approach to it. Imagine a stand-up comedian who accidentally enlisted as a drill sergeant.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 12:54 PM)

Another type of everyday absurdity: Imagine you're leaving your workplace for your lunchbreak. Upon your return, you discover that your workplace has been cordened and/or gated off during your break, with "construction site" warning signs everywhere. You go to your superior and tell him: "I can no longer access my workplace! Why is there suddenly a construction site?" Your superior takes a surpised look and says: "I don't know, first time I see this." You figure: "Must be a Tuesday, then."

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 12:51 PM)

It's kind of surreal, really.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 12:50 PM)

They agree that things are less than ideal, but they acknowledge that their scope of making decisions is limited. Oddly, I keep getting that regardless of how high up the chain of command I bother people.

What's it like to have management that's willing to listen to things they don't want to hear? I've never seen that.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 04:41 AM)

I manage to argue within the company's own internal logic and point out the flaws, shortcomings and discrepancies between "official company policy" and "everyday company reality".

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 04:40 AM)

Many of my coworkers are scared to even talk to managers. I often discuss company matters with them I disagree with, and it isn't a rare occurrence that they say "yeah, you're right..."

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 04:38 AM)

I know how to watch my tone, and I prefer to keep things straightforward and factual, never to attack the person, always the problem itself.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 04:37 AM)

The good thing for me is ever since a minor hiccup many years ago when I was still non-permanent, I've always managed to along just fine with my various superiors (I've been through over a dozen already). And that's despite my outspokenness, my blunt honesty and my oftentimes harsh criticism.

@  Echowarrior : (18 October 2019 - 09:19 AM)

Amazon in the US has pretty good benefits, though, and even the temp workers had forty hours a week to start with. Even with minimum wage, that's pretty good pay.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2019 - 01:20 AM)

Oh, the turnover rates are high here as well.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 09:45 PM)

Amazon.com and .ca, on the other hand, can be pretty terrible. I know from your squawkbox posts that you guys have your issues with Amazon over there, although you're lucky to have stronger government regulations and a union there. I gather the warehouse workers in the USA and Canada have it pretty crappy, with very high turnover, close to minimum wage pay, and no unions

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 09:38 PM)

Amazon.de doesn't really have the same issue. I've ordered from them (and UK, FR, IT and JP) several times, and their packaging is much better

@  Nevermore : (17 October 2019 - 05:22 PM)

I'm not sure how it works on the customer's end. As packers, we sometimes have items that are flagged as "overwrap", which means we absolutely have to put them into a box even if they're already in pretty sturdy manufacturer packaging.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 03:05 PM)

Yeah, I really do wish amazon had an option to upgrade packaging for an extra buck or something. I hate their bubble mailers

@  Benbot : (17 October 2019 - 07:17 AM)

That's how it works. I just hope my order from Amazon doesn't arrive crushed because they idiotically stuffed it in an envelope.

Together with the Rhino G1 sets, probably the most expensive DVDs I ever bought

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:01 PM)

I've still got the age-old Rhino sets

@  Telly : (14 October 2019 - 09:09 PM)

i didnt find that at any of the ones around here, so i had to settle for seasons 1 and 2 of duckman for $3

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Heck, I got the season 2/3 set for $3 (?) from a Dollar General discount bin :p

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 07:29 PM)

The series is pretty cheap on DVD, too, which at least will work internet or no. The complete series set seems to be OOP, but there's a Season 1 set as well as a combined 2 & 3 set.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 06:10 PM)

Woot! Beast wars!

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 06:08 PM)

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 01:51 PM)

He dubbed the peoples that saw him as bad news cannibals and savages before enslaving and wiping them out too.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 01:40 PM)

And if they had been unfriendly: he would have simply slaughtered them with diseases they couldn't fight, and technology they couldn't match until they as a people did not exist. There's something about european backgrounds that drive us to exploit.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 11:02 AM)

He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

@  Paladin : (14 October 2019 - 09:57 AM)

he landed by coincidence in front of long-term residents.

@  Sabrblade : (14 October 2019 - 09:55 AM)

He said the world was round-o! (He said the world was round-o!) He said it could be found-o! (He said it could be found-o!) That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo! (That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo!)

In the year 1492, Columbus gave us the day off skoo

@  Noideaforaname : (14 October 2019 - 08:59 AM)

How often do people actually celebrate Columbus or the Pilgrims? Usually it just feels like celebrating the first break in the school year and a nice dinner with the family.

You've got like two more weeks until the american thanksgiving. Canadian thanksgiving is literally a harvest festival.

No one asked for this reboot they asked for a Hellboy 3 with Perlmen (myself included)

While 1&2 were visually stunning, and some parts of the characters were extremely well done.   I found the shoe horned "romance" was quite odd (seeing all the media for Hellboy, places the Agents at best akin to Bond with a girl/guy of the adventure).  Abe's crush (in 2) was fine, the stuff with Liz felt like a bad fan fiction.

The cartoons they made, Blood and Iron, and Sword of Storms... were very much on point with the comics.  Also the character of Liz was WAY more appealing in the toons.

Hopefully they continue on that strain.   But really, I'd have preferred a Troll Hunter's-esque cartoon series in the veins of the above.  Add in Johann and Roger....   Personally I'd love to see a BPRD movie, focused on Abe's past and horrible fate.

I'm rather optimistic.

An R-rated Hellboy reboot holds zero appeal for me.

Perlman IS Hellboy. The late, great John Hurt IS Professor Broom. And we haven't got the delt Toro Hellboy 3!

Unless this R version is done with the same care as Logan, it could just end up as a blodfy, swear filled mess of tasteless humour because 'mature'.

I hope they take the right lessons from Deadpool and Logan, though i'm not inspired.

I wouldn't worry over much about it being akin to Deadpool.

Hellboy isn't a comedian.   While he's snarky (and can be amusing), as is Abe and Liz...   the Hellboy/BPRD series is not a humour filled one.  It's tragic and violent for all involved.  Extremely so.  One can only hope they chose the R-rating to do it justice.

This is one of those rare occasions I actually agree with 2017^

 

Del Toro made the two films for me and Perlman is Hellboy. With neither it's going to work it's butt off to convince me to see it.

Maybe, since it's R-rated, we'll get some full frontal nudity.

4th? 5th'd? Whatever it is, Pearman makes Bellboy, and as I recall, actively wants to reprise the role. While Del Toro would be ideal, I think Neil could possibly do it justice. Dog Soldiers (his best film) and Doomsday both give me hope for this, but it will be a real hard sell without Pearlman.
I finally got rid of that big white box.

Perlman is the voice I hear when I read Hellboy comics. He is Hellboy! The new guy will only ever come across as knock-off not-Ron Perlman.

Sorry to be contrarian, but count me amongst those that never really got in sync with Del Toro's take on "Hellboy". Del Toro's technicolor imagination never fit with the horror/noir tone that the original Hellboy books tiptoed through. I really feel that "Hellboy" would be much better served with a sub-$100M budget and a studio like Blumhouse at the helm and hold high hopes for this reboot.


Yep.

I want to see Hellboy 3, not a reboot, if the reboot fails, there's always plan A, the sequel people have been waiting for and if that falls through, they might as well go and make a TV series based on the charater, comic book TV series can do well if done right.
