Was that the one where he fights gamma mutant poodles?

@  unluckiness : (25 May 2019 - 03:14 AM)

The CG in that movie was fantastic. Shame Donkey and Fiona were written out of the movie though.

@  TM2-Megatron : (25 May 2019 - 01:20 AM)

Don't worry, though. Ang Lee's Hulk has made it, so if physical media goes this year we can all die happy

@  TM2-Megatron : (25 May 2019 - 01:12 AM)

It's not on 4K yet. Sure would be nice, though

@  Pennpenn : (25 May 2019 - 12:56 AM)

Probably, when I remember to.

@  Telly : (24 May 2019 - 11:11 PM)

you should buy it on bluray or 4k

@  Pennpenn : (24 May 2019 - 09:56 PM)

It's still not up on netflix. Bah!

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 May 2019 - 03:26 PM)

We named the dog "Indiana".

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 May 2019 - 03:25 PM)

Happy 30 years to Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade!

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 May 2019 - 01:35 PM)

Truly they are the compleat package.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (24 May 2019 - 01:24 PM)

Made from the metallized ashes of their previous enemies.

@  MEDdMI : (24 May 2019 - 07:40 AM)

They fight you with sparkles.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 May 2019 - 03:40 AM)

Phyrexians are the bishie-est.

@  unluckiness : (24 May 2019 - 12:29 AM)

That's why they always wear long sleeved shirts and long pants

@  fourteenwings : (23 May 2019 - 11:36 PM)

Everybody knows the most bishie thing about any bishie is his exposed sinew.

@  MEDdMI : (23 May 2019 - 10:04 PM)

*looks up the humanoid slivers* ...really? People were calling those bishies?

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 May 2019 - 12:45 PM)

Have they made a sliver planeswalker yet?

@  RichardT1977 : (23 May 2019 - 10:29 AM)

"DECOMPOSE!"

@  Paladin : (23 May 2019 - 06:29 AM)

will they next evolve into Inhumanoids?

@  Ashley : (23 May 2019 - 02:42 AM)

the original slivers were spikey monsters. then the evolved into humanoids. now they're back to spikey bug monsters.

@  MEDdMI : (22 May 2019 - 10:42 PM)

Wait. Slivers were bishies???

@  unluckiness : (22 May 2019 - 10:40 PM)

They haven't necessarily looped yet. It's possible they're stuck in "yaoi anatomy"

@  Ashley : (22 May 2019 - 10:35 PM)

I think Slivers in MTG have crossed the bishonen line and looped back around to monstrous

@  wonko the sane? : (22 May 2019 - 09:48 PM)

Maxi, provigo, loblaws.

@  RichardT1977 : (22 May 2019 - 09:42 PM)

Which store brand is it?

@  wonko the sane? : (22 May 2019 - 05:52 PM)

I need to buy more "no name" foods. This pizza is freaking awesome.

@  Bass X0 : (20 May 2019 - 11:16 AM)

SEND THE BOOKS!!

@  Cybersnark : (20 May 2019 - 08:52 AM)

So, now that Game of Thrones is over, when can we get back to The Dragon Prince?

@  unluckiness : (20 May 2019 - 12:19 AM)

Like, half of them nowadays are montages of tweet screencaps from the writer's inbox

@  unluckiness : (20 May 2019 - 12:18 AM)

lol you expected integrity from internet news

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 11:33 PM)

I'm mostly confused how news sites went from "Analysing all the amazingness of Game of Thrones" to "Fans sure don't like this season!", like... way to prioritize clicks over a solid editorial opinion

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 11:30 PM)

[and there's a recurring setting of a "derelict industrial site"] is this like the Toei Quarry?

@  MEDdMI : (19 May 2019 - 11:17 PM)

@Foffy and then that giant lasagna just tipped over and killed everyone, to be later known as the infamous Bad Monday event.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 PM)

Ahahaha!!! Go read the reactions for yourself. To say anything more here risks spoiling the finale for subscribing Allsparkers, the quality of this season notwithstanding.

@  Foffy : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 PM)

pretty wild how heathcliff was in the game of thrones finale, i was not expecting that crossover

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 10:48 PM)

were they still super pissed?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 May 2019 - 10:48 PM)

Well, as someone who is not into Game of Thrones, it sure was entertaining to open up social media this evening to unexpectedly see headlines about fan reactions to the finale. Lmao.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:12 PM)

But it's also a SUPER-well known location in my region, so these extensive exterior shots without any post production alterations completely ruin the illusion for me.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:11 PM)

I mean, I get why they did it: It's an existing location that fits the purpose, it's open for the public, and they had to shoot some scenes in my home state anyway to due a subsidizing deal.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:09 PM)

Needless to say, it's not in Berlin, and even what's seen onscreen is waaaaay too modern for something that's supposed to exist in 1929 (even moreso as a derelict site in 1929). The structures seen haven't even been built until the 1960s!

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:07 PM)

I'm currently in the process of watching season 2 of Babylon Berlin, and there's a recurring setting of a "derelict industrial site" or whatever it's supposed to be on the show, and I easily recognize it as a place only a few minutes from where I live (it's actually a former ironworks site that's been turned into a public park).

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:52 PM)

Ever since I went to Japan last year, I have friend who dread watching anime with me due to that...

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:51 PM)

Not hugely, but I am the type to notice places once I have been there and say "Hey, I've been there!"

@  wonko the sane? : (19 May 2019 - 05:50 PM)

Half of new york city (on tape.) is actually montreal.

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 05:50 PM)

I watched Death Wish 5 last night and clearly recognized Toronto streets; didn't pull me out of Bronson's 1-man war on drugs or fashion or whatever it was that pissed him off that time

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 05:49 PM)

it's nice to finally be thought of as exotic by somebody! lol

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 05:48 PM)

In an "I cannot possibly make my brain ignore the location I'm familiar with and pretend it's whatever the story claims it is" way?

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 05:42 PM)

Question for those of you living in exotic locations such as the US or the UK: If you watch a movie or a TV show that features a real-life location as a stand-in for someplace else, and you recognize the real-life location due to having been there in person, does that pull you out of the story?

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:15 PM)

Maybe you should have installed macOS in your house instead.

@  Noideaforaname : (19 May 2019 - 04:40 PM)

Nothing like coming home after a long day to find a bird in the house. And then once you sit down for a well-earned rest after leading the bird back outside, you find it had a friend. A friend who *really* doesn't understand how windows work...

Hey all. We've started an official Discord server for the Allspark, and after selectively circulating some invites to shake things out, we're now going fully live. The invite link is here: 

 

https://discordapp.com/invite/9esErqN

 

If you're not familiar with Discord, it's a live chat system often used for gaming chats, most similar to Slack, or more distantly similar to Skype and Google Hangouts, which are another step over from modern IRC systems like Riot. It's not very much like old-school IRC at all, given the persistent log, image embedding, text formatting, support for voice and video, *droning continues*

 

If you're not familiar with any of those things, Discord is a live chat client where we can argue about stuff at the speed of type and Enter. We've been having quite a bit of fun doing that the past few days and would love to have anyone join who's interested. 

 

You can join using the Discord web client without even creating a permanent account, although creating one will give you options like setting an avatar and keeping access to servers you join without an invite. Installing the desktop or mobile client (which works on everything, we've checked) gets you desktop notifications and the whole biscuit. 

 

We currently only have one discussion channel open, but will open more as needed in the future for topics as they become recurring. Current discussion is on health and safety standards regulation in Ohio.

 

Come play!

Of course there's a figure of Rodimus as some kind of animal girl. Why would I be surprised by this?

Naw, that's the Mayhem server. If you're fun we* might invite you.

 

We**'d like to note that the Allspark Rules and Guidelines apply to the official Allspark server. That means no personal attacks, nudes and lewds, and all the usual. We do watch and moderate the conversation but please feel free to pop one of us a direct message if you feel there's a problem. 

 

Some super-random Discord basics: 

 

• Discord uses markdown for text formatting. It's a standard set of tokens used in a lot of places that gets you things like *italics*, **bold text**, ~~strikethrough~~ and so on, though not colors. = ] You can see the official guide for more details. 

 

• You can embed images or attach files simply by dragging and dropping them into the chat. Image URLs and YouTube videos will automatically embed the content in the message.

 

• You can edit your messages, either by right-click, or by the up arrow if it's the last thing you typed. This can be very handy.

 

• Discord is a bit emoji-crazy, a perk of which is emoji reactions to others' messages. Right-clicking a message will allow you to pin an emoji reaction to it. Kinda handy in the way that a "like" is.

 

• A lot of personalization and configuration magic happens in your user settings menu, which you'll find in the cog icon at the lower left of the screen near your username. Points of interest are the My Account settings, where you can set your display name and avatar, and the Notifications settings, where you can control ... notifications. But there's a lot of stuff to tweak and finagle in there if needed. 

 

• Notifications can be a bit confusing and overwhelming, but they're something you can set both app-wide and per-server, and something you'll probably want to play with to suit your taste. Personally, I have notification sounds turned off, and mobile notifications turned off for all the major servers I'm a part of, with the result that I get a beep on my phone or tablet if I get a direct message and am not on my computer at the time, but not every three seconds when there's activity ... yeah. Play with it to suit your taste. You can find your notification settings for individual servers in the menu next to the server's name at the upper left, and your universal notification settings in your own user settings menu.

Allspark community group for Transformers, Gaming, Tech, Comic Books, Action Figures and anything else related to the geeky culture.
RULES:
1) Play nice and don't be a d!ck. Be respectful with others in the group.
2) No porn, spam, or pirated stuff
3) No slurs about race, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, self identification, etc

We want this place to be a fun place and not be overly bogged down by rules. While we may have very few rules, more can and may be added in the future if individuals take advantage of our established rules.

 
Just be a righteous spark and you'll be fine.

Yeah, sorry about that. I got antsy about the name since just plain old allspark is taken (For now)

 

I had it as allspark.tv but that's more oriented towards the youtube channel and I wanted it to be more about the community but that seems like allspark.community might be too long (Though it might change again). Right now it's set to allspark.forums so we'll just see how it goes. 

 

On a personal level, I'm not really a huge fan of facebook, but I can't shake my fist and yell at clouds about it because our community overall matters to me more than the software being used to experience it. 

 

And the fact that so many people there now are long time forum members that haven't been around to the actual forum in ages, I think we did a good thing. I don't like splitting things up per se, but I do think facebook is just something 99% of people use now and it's good to diversify to a point.

 

Plus, it officially replaces the temp spark as a place for posts discussions (with discord still being there for live chat stuff, which has also gained a lot of users).
