@TM2-Megatron Yeah, it is like @TheMightyMollusk says. The catch is that usually means they can contain beef, and I confirmed it by pushing my luck. XD So... yeah, if going to the theater was about watching the film, it might be worth potentially resting on the balls of my feet while technically sitting in the chair, but put it all together... and I just wait to watch it at home. Oh, and ticket prices, always ticket prices.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 May 2018 - 10:24 AM)

woot woot! Korean barbeque for dinner!

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 May 2018 - 05:51 AM)

It's meat scraps. Whatever's left over from cutting up the more choice cuts.

@  TM2-Megatron : (18 May 2018 - 11:26 PM)

Well, the hot dogs Cineplex has (pretty much our only big theatre chain) around here are quite good, but I have no idea of the composition, and honestly, it's probably better that way.

@  Otaku : (18 May 2018 - 10:01 PM)

@TM2-Megatron In my case, shouldn't risk the hot dogs, either. Maybe if they are guaranteed to contain NO beef (can't digest it anymore >_<).

@Nevermore First time I have ever heard of this, but it sounds awesome!

@  Arazyr : (18 May 2018 - 08:39 AM)

We did that amongst ourselves in German class in college. We just called it "Germish", though.

@  Shrug : (18 May 2018 - 07:01 AM)

Nevermore, you've peaked my interest and I wish to subscribe to your newsletter

@  Nevermore : (18 May 2018 - 04:04 AM)

The term itself is an example: "English for Runaways" is supposed to mean "English for advanced speakers".

@  Nevermore : (18 May 2018 - 04:03 AM)

Think of it as the German variety of Engrish, only done completely on purpose for maximum hilarity. The target audience are bilingual German native speakers who a) understand the intended meaning and b) realize the absurdness of the end result.

@  Nevermore : (18 May 2018 - 04:02 AM)

It's basically the official unofficial term for deliberate mistranslations between German and English, done for the lulz.

@  Nevermore : (18 May 2018 - 04:01 AM)

Has anyone ever heard of the term "English for Runaways"?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (18 May 2018 - 01:13 AM)

Okay... Seriously.. The Mystic Knights need a DVD release already.. I keep seeing them pop up in the most random of places.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (18 May 2018 - 01:03 AM)

Unfortunately no Squidkids at Sea World so no splat zones. Now that would have been a good brand deal to advertise in the park, and would have made more brand sense than friggin' Mystic Knights of Tir Na Nog.

@  Paladin : (17 May 2018 - 07:52 PM)

i think that's where the orcas jump & land on the trainers in protest to their horrible treatment

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 May 2018 - 06:53 PM)

Splat zones? ;)

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 May 2018 - 05:05 PM)

It was wet from gallons of salt water. Splash zones, man.

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 May 2018 - 04:46 PM)

Only if you're classy.

@  Paladin : (17 May 2018 - 04:42 PM)

do you serve orca meat with butter?

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 May 2018 - 03:57 PM)

I hope it was wet from butter

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 May 2018 - 01:06 AM)

I used to work at Sea World in Florida, in the stroller rental warehouse, where we would regularly have to hose wet popcorn out of strollers. Popcorn hasn't really appealed to me since.

@  Steevy Maximus : (16 May 2018 - 07:36 PM)

Mine got the HP Pavilion Gaming 15" Green light laptop...and I can't find anything about it except the press release and HP's own website options.

@  Steevy Maximus : (16 May 2018 - 07:35 PM)

Always bemusing to find a new laptop series at Walmart and then can't find ANYTHING online about it except for the press releases

@  Paladin : (16 May 2018 - 06:52 PM)

still sounds preferable to "The Hobbit."

@  wonko the sane? : (16 May 2018 - 06:15 PM)

I once farted so rank the guy behind me walked out of the lord of rings movie. Told my brother someone needed to sew my ass shut on his way out.

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 May 2018 - 06:15 PM)

If I couldn't eat popcorn, I have to admit that would remove part of the appeal for my going, as well. Although the theatre chain up here still has decent hot dogs, I guess

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (16 May 2018 - 06:12 PM)

Yeah.. Stomach issues is one of the big medical reasons for me as well.

@  Otaku : (16 May 2018 - 05:55 PM)

I rarely go to movie theaters anymore: besides being too fat to sit comfortably in the seats, I have digestive health issues. No popcorn at all. >_<

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (16 May 2018 - 05:26 PM)

Medical reasons.

@  Telly : (16 May 2018 - 12:49 PM)

why?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (15 May 2018 - 04:37 PM)

I can't even go the theater anymore really.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 May 2018 - 03:29 PM)

Personally, I like the short wait. As much as I still enjoy going to the theatre, I also like getting movies at home as soon as possible

@  Bass X0 : (15 May 2018 - 03:12 PM)

Just found out John Mahoney (Martin Crane in Frasier) died earlier this year. That's sad.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 May 2018 - 02:59 PM)

I don't think I'm ever going to get used to the turn around time on new movies making it to home formats.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 May 2018 - 02:37 PM)

Only for Steelbooks and whatnot, anyway

@  Telly : (15 May 2018 - 02:23 PM)

picked up black panther on bluray. walmart had little signs next to the price sticker saying theyre actually limiting copies of it to 2 per customer. ive never seen that on a movie before

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 May 2018 - 03:34 PM)

@  Paladin : (14 May 2018 - 07:33 AM)

more and more i'm starting to wish i'd become an alcoholic years ago.

@  Otaku : (14 May 2018 - 06:31 AM)

The sad thing is that I sometimes think a little social drinking by others puts us on even footing. I'm sure you're all shocked (which emoticon do i use for sarcasm again?) that I'm not good at social situations, and either I clam up or say too much, can't read the room, etc.? XP

@  Nevermore : (14 May 2018 - 12:21 AM)

I don't drink for a variety of reasons. Family alcoholism, can't stand the smell, don't like what it does to people, etc.

@  Waspinator : (13 May 2018 - 11:15 PM)

It's not always other people caring about you not drinking that makes it awkward. You can make yourself feel awkward by not doing something everyone else is doing without anyone even trying to make you do it. Peer pressure doesn't have to be intentional, the desire to fit in can make you do it to yourself.

@  Plokatron : (13 May 2018 - 10:57 PM)

@Pennpenn Same here. I just don't see a need to drink hard stuff even if it's as simple as one sip. Two reasons one I'd probably be as much a lightweight as Doc. Brown and two my uncle was killed in a car wreck due to a drunk driver and I've made a promise to my mother to never drink unless it's very special. I'm even less tolerant of Smoking or chewing Tabaco since my dad had cancer twice due to chewing learned his lesson after he survived round two. And before I get the naysayers on this the doctors specified to him that it was chewing that screwed him up. His genes did have a possible trigger in them that coulc of gone off but according to the docs it only mutated after he started chewing.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (13 May 2018 - 08:06 PM)

I have enough problems with Diabetes messing with me.. Don't need alcohol adding to it. ;)

Welcome to the Colony Championship where the winner will go onto the tournament finals to face the Cybertron Championship winner. We're down to 5 teams and in this one have the third Three Way Dance of our tragic games.
 
Thundercracker had the easiest path to these semi-finals after fairly easily outlasting Animated Bulkhead in the Tunak Tunak Ten. The Seeker clearly enters the battle the least damaged of all the combatants. Whether this means much we'll have to wait and see.
 
And then there are the opponents, Cogman with Cade Yeager & the Mini Dinobots and then Sideways with a couple of heads. I don't even know what to say about this. What is there to say about a duo who have been warring non-stop for going on 3 rounds? No matter who emerges the victor one has to wonder if this tandem isn't fated to Fight Forever and if these games can contain this rivalry.
 
Take your seats on the sidelines, tell us what you see out on the battlefield, make your opinion and vote heard, and send one of these three teams to the finals!

 


...was there really any doubt which team I'm supporting this year? :D

I have to admit, Thundercracker just got (3 years ago) a leader class toy, Cogman a toy last year (though hard to find).

 

I want Sideways to win so that someone at Hasbro will realize their folly of not making Sideways during Titans Return!

There isn't a whole lot to report on this one - starting to think I should have just stayed on Cybertron and watched the other fight. If you want a nail biter, a fight that's going to go down to wire, go watch Grandus vs Rattrap & Dinobot. If you want to watch Sideways and Cogman tear the wholly hell out of each other for the third round in a row and totally forget they're also supposed to be fighting Thundercracker this one is for you!

 

Thus far like the previous two rounds Cogman and Sideways are trying really hard but failing short of destroying the other. All while this is going on Thundercracker flies around and takes unanswered pot shots at the two just to make sure he gets some offense in and goes onto the second round. Other than trying to force the other in front of the shots the other two bots don't seem to care.

 

At this point Thundercracker has almost given up on the fight, sure that he must be ahead on most scorecards, and seems to be spending more time with a fleshling named Michael Bay talking about his movie. At times flying off with Bay to record scenes of explosions. Strangely enough as soon as Bay showed Cade Yeager made himself scarce, just screaming "nope nope nope" and shouting obscenities in between lamenting having "wasted three years of my life." Odd.

 

Still we're only halfway through this fight and perhaps one of Cogman and Sideways will finally fall and realize they now need to try to take down the Seeker - or more likely run out the clock knocking each other unconscious again and again only to repeat while the playwright cake walks to the finals. We'll find out in part 2 of this maybe not so thrilling semi-final matchup! Me I'm heading back to Cybertron...

If only those mini-Dinobots had studied G1, they could've realized their full potential in this matchup:

Final update on this battle as we speed towards midnights conclusion to this fight and we need a moment of silence. Michael Bay has left us. After being observed in an argument with Thundercracker about their March Mayhem film project, specifically about why Michael wanted to cut out all of his plot and replace it with explosions, Michael tragically fell to his death after what is being termed an accidental seat ejection from the speeding jet during yet more explosion pick-up shots. "Accidental" but this reporter has it on good word that Buster was the one who pushed the eject button.

 

Terrible complications for the Earth-Movieverse A reality as Michael Bay was replaced as director by Uwe Boll. I can't tell you much about what's going on in the present day of that reality as it'll be another 90 years before the radiation level is safe to go back. Poor bastards. :p

 

Oh as for this "fight" last I saw Sideways and Cogman were passed out from exhaustion and Cade and the mini-Dinobots were taking care of the ugly business of burying Mr. Bay. Said something about needing closure. :D

 

4 hours and change to go until this one is over but lets be honest - it's over. But we fear to go along with the March Mayhem finals we're going to need Cogman and Sideways to fight one last time to FINALLY settle this war. :thumbsup

This is a travesty! Cogman must have been holding back. Maybe he and Thundercracker became buds on a Nurse Whitney forum or something. I don't approve of bringing a small dog to such a dangerous activity though. 

 

Sideways could have won this if he... was more forwards...? ZING
