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.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:39 AM)

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

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

Just opened it and suddenly I'm 9 years old again.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

Bought myself Fansproject Glacialord for my birthday during their Black Friday sale.

@  Nevermore : (12 December 2019 - 07:45 PM)

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.

@  wonko the sane? : (12 December 2019 - 06:59 PM)

Depends entirely on how badly you cooked them. What?

Cheddar can do just about anything.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:32 PM)

Cream cheese has to be on a bagel or crackers.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:31 PM)

(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)

I would ask, but I'd rather not know.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (12 December 2019 - 03:38 PM)

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 08:48 AM)

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?

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 05:05 AM)

Anyone really believe Cosmos searched far enough for more ingredient for Corrostop?

@  Nevermore : (11 December 2019 - 03:48 AM)

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.

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 December 2019 - 05:01 PM)

I'm sure most good/bad (depending on your POV) bosses would be able to find something for the worker to do, in most cases, even if it's spending 8 hours pretending to push a broom around

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 December 2019 - 11:10 AM)

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.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:54 PM)

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?

Vision's days were numbered the minute his origins involved a Infinity Gem, considering we all knew this was coming. That's also why they've been hardcore pushing his "humanity" in his previous appearances. He's likely going to be one of the first ones taken out of commission (Mostly because he's also arguably the most powerful being on Earth with the aid of said Stone).

No, Adam Warlock is playing the Beyonder's role and Beyonder is standing in for Dazzler.

I kind of feel the same.

 

I got this feeling that Infinity War might be the best movie of 2018 but then again it could be the worse movie due to all of the charaters appearing, but so far the trailer pretty much blows Justice League trailers out of the water (not seen the film, YET) but then I do think DC is on a rush to catch up to marvel who had plenty of sucess in the last couple of years when it comes to movies thou Inhumans might be their misstep.

Marvel's been building to this for a decade. Thanos first appeared six years ago.

 

I'm kind of shocked the Superhero bubble didn't burst before we got here. But I'll be honest - this is probably the movie in which I get off the ride. Personal fatigue with the genre on my end, but what a bookend movie to wrap it all up with.

 

That's subject to change if we ever get a Darkhawk movie or show.

Marvel has shown theyre quite good at having multiple characters in a film without feeling overloaded.

Then again, there will be a TON of them in this one. Though i dont expect the guardians to show up on earth til towards the end

I think I'm pretty much done with the MCU. The best reaction I can come up with to this is just Meh. No excitement. No anticipation. Just complete ambivalence. I've seen everything up through GotG 2, and I'm sure I'll see everything else at some point or other, but it's just nothing I still have any real desire to see.

 

I know it's not general superhero fatigue, because I'm still very interested to see more DCEU movies, and want to see more general superhero-type movies independent of either Marvel or DC. I was never really a Marvel guy, but they managed to get me to care about the universe with the Phase 1 movies, especially the first Avengers. But while they got my attention, nothing's really worked to keep it. I think Winter Soldier was the last movie that really still left me feeling invested in the universe.

 

Anyway, I'm happy for everyone who's excited for it. Hope you all thoroughly enjoy it.

I dont get the idea of "movie fatigue" I could see not liking a series if its gone downhill like TF stuff but Marvel movies have been consistently good to great since Iron Man 1

 

Do you put down a good book at the climax of a story and say meh I'm done? Turn off a game at the start of the final boss fight and delete your save file?

As a general MCU fan, I would have to say you are giving the MCU a little too much credit. That said, I do not expect this movie to fail at the box office.

Do you put down a good book at the climax of a story and say meh I'm done? Turn off a game at the start of the final boss fight and delete your save file?

 

Since you put it in terms of literary adventure as well as video games, I'll use an example of both:

 

I really enjoy the author David Weber. He's got a "Science Fantasy" setting called the Safehold series that is really, really good and is presently sitting at eight books]. He says he plans to continue the series, but I found the last book to be a good getting off point. Not out of any malice towards the author or the writing style (Though I do have some critiques with how he's handling his narrative, the last book was extremely satisfying), but simply because the overall story no longer interested me. The main hook that got me into the series was resolved, and looking forward I really didn't care for the next planned "stage" for this universe. Not because it wouldn't be a page turner, but it's simply not a story I'm interested in spending time with. That doesn't mean I don't wish it well, just means my own interest level has waned.

 

For video games, I'll use the example that drive my real life gamer friends up the proverbial wall. Final Fantasy VII, the quintessential JRPG classic...I never actually beat the game. Got all the way to the final dungeon to square off against Sephiroth...and hung it up. Why? Because the story was finished. Cloud's mystery had been resolved, Meteor had been stopped, the world was saved. I didn't feel like slogging through yet another dungeon to fight yet another boss after hundreds of hours. Like I said, drives my friends utterly bonkers that I'd stop "right before the end", but there was nothing left to drive me forward. I didn't and still don't care for Sephiroth as an antagonist. I find him whiny and annoying, and hardly deserving of the praise through the years.

 

 

 

I haven't been a serious comic reader in over a decade. I keep abreast current events and read summaries, but the last comic I purchased was when I got Batman: The Court of Owls trade for my Nook when I got that for Christmas four? five? years ago. The last Marvel book I picked up was the Christmas issue of Iron Man that involved him killing Terrorists on a submarine that were planning to launch a nuke at New York City and Tony being saved from the detonating warhead by a literal angel. To date the story, Tony was still with Rumiko Fujikawa at the time (I hear they offed her a few years later...typical Marvel. Give Tony a decent love interest that can actually keep up with him - plus all those fun little nods to the 2099 timeline - and they fridge her).

 

 

 

In that sense, I'm not a comic fan any longer. I enjoy the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I enjoy what it does. But my overall interest level in the narrative going forward is dropping, so Infinity War (and Part 2, if there is one) will likely be my last rodeo. Not because I don't think the output is good, but simply because it's as good an ending point as I'm going to get. And who knows, this is all just from the first trailer. It's entirely possible the MCU will hook me again with this tale and I'll stay on board for yet more films. I'm just saying that right now, I feel like Infinity War is the last Marvel film I'm going to be invested in - and not without just cause. The last Marvel film I actually watched was Age of Ultron. I've yet to see ANY of Phase 3.
