@Sukoshiko Well his clothes left an impression on you didn't they?

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 October 2020 - 06:09 AM)

I just read "Tesla Cybertruck" like AC/DC's "Thunderstruck", now it won't get out of my head, so I inflict it on all of you as well.

@  Sukoshiko : (25 October 2020 - 12:25 AM)

Tesla Cybertruck: amazing or just silly looking? I can't decide.

@  Sukoshiko : (25 October 2020 - 12:24 AM)

Weird question: I had to deal with a guy today... I'm not exactly up on modern fashions... or even archaic fashions... But this guy... Tuxedo Jacket and shirt, studs in all the button holes except the bottom one, blue jeans, and cowboy boots... Take a moment to imagine that get up. And this was to a business meeting, trying to impress someone. What look is that? Who on earth would dress that way? (I mean on purpose)

@  wonko the sane? : (24 October 2020 - 06:04 PM)

I think the few up here were lost to bad placement, poor weather, and the usual language trap.

@  TM2-Megatron : (24 October 2020 - 04:25 PM)

There are 5 spread around southwestern Ontario, all run by the same company. I've only been to the one in my area, but it seems to do good business even in non-pandemic times. On long weekends, when they do triple features, there's a normally a lineup to get in Friday and Saturday nights

@  Telly : (24 October 2020 - 01:51 PM)

there been one outside of my town for as long as ive been alive at least. its gone through its share of owners and periods of being closed down, but its been open for the past decade at least

@  Otaku : (24 October 2020 - 12:08 PM)

Bias from personal experience, but drive-in theaters are nearly extinct.  I grew up near one but it went out of business in the late 80s, and was torn down and replaced with some other business by the early 90s.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 October 2020 - 07:47 AM)

Out here, I mean. Couldn't comment on their popularity in place where they actually exist.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 October 2020 - 06:44 AM)

I wouldn't know. They've only come back into vogue with the social distancing from the plague, and while some places have made an effort to shoestring the places together, it's all largely too distant to be accessible.

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 October 2020 - 09:46 PM)

I'd hate to see ours replaced by condos. They're a great way to spend an evening, whether with family or on a date. And they've never been as common in Canada as the US, so we cna't afford to lose as many

@  wonko the sane? : (23 October 2020 - 09:45 PM)

Largely they were either poorly placed or bought out and torn down to be replaced by something other than over priced short term parking. Mostly condos.

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 October 2020 - 09:14 PM)

I guess your winters are worse, so they have a shorter operating season. Drive-ins in the Toronto area can usually operate until early or mid-December; maybe even into early January if there's no real snowfall, and open up again sometime in March.

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 October 2020 - 09:13 PM)

THere's really only 1 left in the entire province?

@  wonko the sane? : (23 October 2020 - 09:03 PM)

Ha! It's probably faster for me to drive to your drive in than to make my way to the only one left in quebec.

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 October 2020 - 06:57 PM)

Fortunately we still have a drive-in theatre that's exempt from the closures about a 10 minute drive away

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 October 2020 - 06:57 PM)

Theatres around here are closed again for at least another couple weeks (wouldn't be surprised if it's extended by another month or so, either), but that's what they've been doing here as well. Playing the old classics

@  Maximus Ambus : (23 October 2020 - 02:36 PM)

I got Earthrise Megatron, he's better then I thought he'd be though Netflix Megatron is still tops.

@  Bass X0 : (23 October 2020 - 10:44 AM)

The original Rocky movie is also showing. May go next weekend. That’s how you get people back in the theatres - show the old classics every adult loves.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 October 2020 - 10:35 AM)

They did a limited run showing of it up here too, back when the theaters were open... red zones suck.

@  Bass X0 : (23 October 2020 - 10:13 AM)

The original Back To The Future is showing in the Odeon in the UK now. I think I will go see it tomorrow.

@  Donocropolis : (23 October 2020 - 05:51 AM)

It was either the Bumblebee or Cliffjumper. Can't remember the colors.

@  Kalidor : (22 October 2020 - 06:43 PM)

What did it look like?

@  Donocropolis : (22 October 2020 - 01:34 PM)

I swear I remember getting the Happymeal G1 minibot as a child, but I live 2.5 hours from St. Louis, which is the only place they apparently came out. It's possible that I got it on a family vacation, though, as we went to Six Flags pretty often.

@  ▲ndrusi : (22 October 2020 - 01:07 PM)

Conversely, I had the Gobot helicopter from Wendy's and I was absolutely convinced it was an actual Transformer.

@  Donocropolis : (22 October 2020 - 08:13 AM)

I used to rubber-band Hot-Wheels style construction vehicles together and pretend it was Devestator.

@  Bass X0 : (21 October 2020 - 05:26 PM)

When I was about four years old, my parents bought me Bugbite and tried to tell me it was Bumblebee. I was not yet a fan of Transformers, but I knew that wasn't Bumblebee. I didn't even have the real Bumblebee at that time.

@  Maximus Ambus : (21 October 2020 - 01:39 PM)

It would come with two soundtracks: the eighties classic and one featuring dubstep and the VAs are popular Youtubers.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 October 2020 - 12:13 PM)

But yeah, reading it: I came off as a bit of an ass.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 October 2020 - 11:52 AM)

I just couldn't think of worse music than disco...

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 October 2020 - 11:35 AM)

What were you trying to imply with the mocking sarcasm, though? Nobody suggested that '80s music was any more "of it's time" than '70s music.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 October 2020 - 11:18 AM)

I said that disco wouldn't fare much better with the same context: media is property of it's time; biases, culture and limitations are all inherent in that. Some stuff can be brought forward because of an inherently timeless nature or the simplicity with which it was made but lots of media is a time capsule of the period of when it was made.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 October 2020 - 08:46 AM)

I'm not sure what you're trying to imply, or what you even think I said.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 October 2020 - 08:11 AM)

Yeah, cause disco would make the transition so much better...

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 October 2020 - 07:17 AM)

I feel the '80s music would be jarring when running over current-day CGI instead of well, '80s visuals.

@  Maximus Ambus : (21 October 2020 - 05:39 AM)

Not a remake, reanimated scene for scene, like that fan vid titled they were always real to me.

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 October 2020 - 04:37 AM)

Because we need more remakes these days.

@  Maximus Ambus : (21 October 2020 - 01:36 AM)

Be a hoot if these Studio Series 86 toys led to Transformers The Move Reanimated like Pokemon Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution.

@  Paladin : (20 October 2020 - 05:15 PM)

only takes three pounds to be a cereal killer.

@  Kalidor : (20 October 2020 - 04:54 PM)

5 pounds is a lot of cereal! /deadpan

@  Maximus Ambus : (20 October 2020 - 02:32 PM)

Seems the area near my work place is due to be gentrified. Electric car ports, fifty pound haircuts and five pound bowls of cereal in breakfast cafes I'll bet.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 October 2020 - 11:31 PM)

@ZakuConvoy Lumines Electric Symphony. So still halfway interesting, and it’ll play on the PS TV

@  Demovere Xeno : (19 October 2020 - 10:36 PM)

@Maximus: I paired the Battle Patrol with Ironworks and they look good together, though the Off Road Patrol would probably fit best as vehicles you're likely to find at a construction site.

@  ZakuConvoy : (19 October 2020 - 09:39 PM)

So...was it something like Tearaway or Gravity Rush or was it just a FIFA or a Madden?

@  wonko the sane? : (19 October 2020 - 08:26 PM)

Sounds like they need to clean more often.

Dodging and weaving through the streets of the OPD, Kage slid The Impossible around people and other vehicles as smoothly as he could, while losing as little speed as possible.

Upon arriving at the exterior of Merchant Javier's, Beathra and the Omega Knight saw a portion of stree that had started to transform as the street directly in front of the store was eroding and a street light had changed to a strange mushroom.

 
Inside, Dee moved past the three goons to see some sort of black book sink into the ground like it was sinking in water.

Kage took one look at the strange transformations enveloping the small patch of street outside Javier's and made sure The Impossible slid to a stop a short back from it. Exiting the vehicle in full armour and ready for anything, Omega commented mostly to himself.

"The Urban eroding to the Organic, eh? I'll give you three guesses as to who i think is behind this mess, and the first two don't count."

As The PoeT...Beathra...approached, Omega noted again just how much the mystic had changed. The once worn and weather-beaten wanderer was now sharp-eyed, sure-footed and unbowed. He was still the same man Omega had know for many months, just more... himself, than he had been before. Like a puzzle whose elusive final piece had been found.

"Beathra," Omega said with a nod of greeting. "Your timing is perfect.

We have a prob;em."

"The wind sang of trouble and the trees called my name," Beathra replied, "And so I am here."

 

Turning now to the building and without hesitation he moved to stand before the corrupted street and knelt down, prodding it carefully with his staff, continuing to speak while doing so.

 

"I have gathered information, such as I could, from here to the Bessletrade of Burban and back." he said, now listening very carefully to the transformed lamp post, then added, "Though, I admit, I have found relatively little of clear value." Here he very carefully reached out and touched the mushroom shape for just a brief moment, "Certainly no direct mention of EB or Patch, as unlikely as that seemed to begin with."

 

Here Beathra stood back and narrowed his eyes at the distorted merchant's shop and said, finally, "It seems, however, we have more pressing matters to contend with."

The woman said to Dee, "Those goons were trying to rob me in broad daylight! I've heard their kind is cowardly and superstitious so I figured I could scare them with my pocket Necronomicron. I never expected all of this to happen. I-I'm sorry."

 
Meanwhile, as far as Beathra could tell, the ground lacked any obvious toxins or pestilence. However, it was squishy and unsteady so footing might not be as sure as they'd like. Just then, he and the Omega Knight heard a noise. Like someone trying escape Merchant Javier's but couldn't get out due to the rapidly rusting door.

Dee continued to struggle with the puddle and book... one handed ... and while it did not feel as if her immersed arm was melting, rotting or otherwise having harm inflicted on it in some magical form... she knew enough tales to suspect that this evil magic could indeed be doing just that while also being cruel enough to trick her senses... as if in hopes of tempting her to risk more.

 

and then she heard Night Cap speak... and while her primary shock was how similar his outburst was to the one bit back from the tip of her own tongue, it took a moment more for her to answer the old woman's question.

 

"...that is a much friendlier Magic."

At the sound, the Omega Knight drew Retribution and eyed the rusting door warily.

"Somebody wants out. Could be civillians caught in this magical... thing. Or it could be whoever caused this. Either way, please stand clear and be ready, Beathra."

Stepping forward onto the less-than-study...ground. Omega nevertheless took as firm a stance as it would allow...

"You, on the other side," he yelled. "Stamd clear!"

Then spun around on his left foot to slam his right into the door as hard as he could!

Beathra nodded and stood just out of Kage's way. 

 

However, as the Knight brought his boot to bear, he thrust forth his staff and cried out "Oscailte!" and ripple of energy leapt to the door battering it with the power of his voice.

As the door was kicked open, the three goons looked on to see,
"Oh jive, it's the Omega Knight!"
"Quick, we better run!"
"...can I have your autograph?"

 
As Dee managed to pull the book free from the ground's grasp, she could still hear all the others in the building fending off the impending horrors attacking them. The woman in front of her was dumbfounded and possibly in shock over the whole thing.

Retribution rose as Omega saw the three. On the verge of at least offering the benefit of the doubt, their first words quickly changed Omegas mind.

"Run and you will regret it. Now, what happened? What did you do?"

Omega scowled at the men.

"Free, Money? in Merchant Jacier's?

Do tell."

Tilting Retribution just a tiny bit, so it angled more directly towards these 'Innocent Citizens', Omega scanned the men for signs of truth or deception.

The trio didn't seem to be lying. However, they started screaming in terror at something behind the Omega Knight. The mushroom that was once a street light bisected down the middle into a toothy maw. Flies began to pour out of it as it hungrily shuffled forward.

Beathra glanced at the creature behind them and then back to the cowering goons, then smiled.

 

"Thy greed has brought this beast to bear,

 To stay and fight it would be only fair.

 Punishment for thy many wrongs,

 And perhaps a deed worthy of songs.1"
