@  MEDdMI : (19 April 2019 - 09:21 PM)

oof, yikes. Good luck.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 April 2019 - 09:18 PM)

We're in the middle of a kitchen reno and NOTHING will be done until tuesday. I could beat a four day weekend with a hammer right now if it meant I could use my stove again.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 April 2019 - 06:47 PM)

Can't beat 4 day weekends either.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 April 2019 - 06:47 PM)

I prefer later shifts myself, but my 3 day weekend shift isn't bad. Nice to work without those administration busy bodies poking around.

@  Nevermore : (19 April 2019 - 04:12 AM)

Yeah, traffic is a plus as well. Rarely got any trouble getting to work on late shift (even with the neverending construction site on the highway), and when my shift is over, there's hardly any traffic at all anymore.

@  MEDdMI : (18 April 2019 - 06:27 PM)

while I don't have weekends consistently off, working 2nd shift isn't so bad. I'm more likely to do stuff before work than after (when I'm already tired). Plus no rush hour traffic

@  TM2-Megatron : (18 April 2019 - 05:03 PM)

Switching shifts constantly is never good for one's health. There was a time when I worked overnights steady for about 2 years; did wonders for my health, as well

@  Nevermore : (18 April 2019 - 04:36 PM)

Don't miss early shift (and especially switching back and forth every two weeks) a bit.

@  Nevermore : (18 April 2019 - 04:36 PM)

Man, permanent late shift really has done wonders for my overal well-being. Never having to get up early for work, staying up late, weekends off... a ot of my coworkers think I'm crazy, but late shift is really my preferred shift.

@  Nevermore : (18 April 2019 - 04:33 PM)

(My total lack of sleep on that day might have contributed, though.)

@  Nevermore : (18 April 2019 - 04:33 PM)

At noon, it was warm.

@  Nevermore : (18 April 2019 - 04:33 PM)

On Monday, we went on strike early in the morning, I was also wearing to jackets and gloves and my toes and fingers were freezing.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 April 2019 - 04:31 PM)

Nope, right now my days are doing that. Frigid at night (Well, just below zero, but still.) and warm enough to be always be ill prepared during the day.

@  Nevermore : (18 April 2019 - 04:28 PM)

Today it's so warm I had to take a shower to wash off the sweat after a lengthy bike trip.

@  Nevermore : (18 April 2019 - 04:27 PM)

This past Friday I was wearing two jackets and winter gloves outside and took a hot bath when I returned home.

@  Nevermore : (18 April 2019 - 04:27 PM)

Is "April weather" an issue in other countries as well, or is that specifically a German phenomenon?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 April 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Well, when you understand the history of the area it make sense. It's basically a series of countries buying the place, moving in, saying "we rule you people now", and the locals shrugging and responding, "okay, you have fun with that".

@  Sabrblade : (16 April 2019 - 07:58 AM)

When did we all turn into Henry Higgins?

@  unluckiness : (16 April 2019 - 03:16 AM)

To be fair, most Americans can't get the hang of English, so I can understand why.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 April 2019 - 03:15 AM)

(And yeah, Calliope is a Greek muse, not French, but the street was named BY the French when they took over.)

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 April 2019 - 03:10 AM)

In New Orleans there's a bunch of streets with French names that are pronounced by locals with a more English emphasis, for example "Calliope Street" is pronounced "CAL-lee-ope".

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (15 April 2019 - 11:56 PM)

I figured as much for Canadians.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 April 2019 - 11:37 PM)

hm; whenever I've heard people talk about the school they said it the same way as the cathedral...but I guess that's in Canada, so they're probably more familiar with the cathedral than the school

@  Dracula : (15 April 2019 - 11:11 PM)

There's plenty of place names in the US like that. Around here we have an "el doh-RAY-doh," and up north there's a Cairo that's pronounced "kay-roh"

@  RichardT1977 : (15 April 2019 - 09:56 PM)

Yeah, the common pronunciation of the University is probably the reason most Americans don't pronounce the Cathedral name correctly.

@  Arazyr : (15 April 2019 - 08:03 PM)

That's my understanding of how the two are supposed to be pronounced as well.

@  Echowarrior : (15 April 2019 - 07:42 PM)

When I'm talking about the cathedral, I say "noh-treh dahme". When I talk about the university, I say "noh-ter dayme". I don't see a problem with that.

@  Paladin : (15 April 2019 - 06:26 PM)

guessing "Hunchback" just got bumped WAY down the list for Disney's live-action remakes...

@  Patch : (15 April 2019 - 05:56 PM)

We all pronounce it wrong, so no one knows enough to care.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 April 2019 - 05:40 PM)

It'd be odd for most Americans not to know how to pronounce Notre Dame, considering they have a University with the same name that's the subject of a relatively popular film based around a sport most Americans love

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (15 April 2019 - 04:22 PM)

Three or four more hours will be needed to contain the fire.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (15 April 2019 - 04:22 PM)

Update from France 24: the Paris Fire Brigade says two towers and the main structure of the cathedral have been saved from complete destruction.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (15 April 2019 - 03:57 PM)

One does not have to speak French to know that rhyming with "voter name" is off the mark.

@  Locoman : (15 April 2019 - 03:51 PM)

Really? It's an international tragedy and you're zeroing in on the people who maybe don't speak French?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (15 April 2019 - 03:44 PM)

@Tm_Silverclaw I just read on BBC News that the cause is not yet clear, but officials suspect the fire could be linked to renovation work.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (15 April 2019 - 03:42 PM)

Oh boy, here we go with the U.S.-American newscasters who can't pronounce "Notre Dame" correctly.

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 April 2019 - 03:38 PM)

Too soon to say.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (15 April 2019 - 03:20 PM)

Do we know if it was an attack? Arson? Or just bad wiring?

@  Nevermore : (15 April 2019 - 02:10 PM)

Religion is dead?

@  Paladin : (15 April 2019 - 02:01 PM)

major cathedral burning down on Holy Week is some kind of metaphor.

@  Benbot : (15 April 2019 - 12:54 PM)

Hard to believe a wonder of the world could just be wiped out so easily. Hopefully they can still save it

@  Benbot : (15 April 2019 - 12:51 PM)

Well, Notre Dame is burning down

@  Benbot : (15 April 2019 - 10:05 AM)

yikes I thought the site was going to be down for a while

@  Nevermore : (14 April 2019 - 09:07 PM)

So, time for another strike. No sleep for me tonight. Oh well.

@  Nevermore : (14 April 2019 - 09:04 PM)

Think Game of Thrones "light" meets Cabaret and you get the idea.

@  Nevermore : (14 April 2019 - 09:03 PM)

Kinda sorta, just with more intrigue, conspiracy, depravity, crime and violence.

@  RichardT1977 : (14 April 2019 - 06:37 PM)

So it's like a prequel to Cabaret?

@  Nevermore : (14 April 2019 - 04:02 PM)

And man, characters are smoking literally EVERYWHERE.

@  Nevermore : (14 April 2019 - 03:27 PM)

Also, full frontal male nudity. (There's been quite a bit of female nudity since episode 1.)

@  Nevermore : (14 April 2019 - 03:26 PM)

Episode 6, and Hitler is randomly name-checked.

Also, keep in mind that there was a span of time where the Horde knew She-Ra existed, but didn't know Adora was her, or even that Adora had switched sides rather than being captured.  She took advantage of the passive effect of people not EXPECTING a dual identity.

Five only just started, finally watching the show and am on ep4. It was going pretty ok but ep4 with Perfuma took at down turn in animation, aw.

Checked out Secret of the Sword and saw that original Glimmer did have teleportation powers.

I thought I'd hate Catra but her story so far was sometimes for interesting that Adora's.

And Bow was totally suppose to say 'Hey girlfriend' instead of 'hey Glimmer' in the first episode.

I finished the series (finally) and made a review of each episode. Haven't done an overall thoughts but have to say it's s pretty great take on She-Ra. Not perfectly executed but really good.

My fave ep should have been the Princess Prom buuuut the No Princess Left Behind had the actual showcasing of the Princesses of Power with Sea Hawk in tow, haha. Plus the ending cliffhanger where Entrapta DIES! Gasp! Loved it.



I haven't checked online for articles and stuff but :

- season 2 is sure, right?
- seriously, Sea Hawk? This doof grew on me but when will be turned super manly awesome and sweep Adora off her feet? Cuz he seems to be with Mermista and also used to date other Princesses? That salty sea dog!
- Netossa and Spinnerella are a couple? Netossa is voiced by the producer Noelle Stevenson? Is she lesbian too?
- Sweet Bee and Peekablue were named dropped to be dating as well.
- I LOVE it that Entrapta joined the Horde by accident. I didn't really know that she was originally Horde. So it was great when she defected, sorta. Scorpia needed a friend. Both are my favorite characters :)
- too much to get into on the relationship dynamic of Adora and Catra.
- Was Shadow Weaver called Light Spinner in the original show too?
- Kyle, Lonnie and the lizard man should have been homages. They're featured too much. Kyle could have been an awkward Kid-tenna for Mantenna. Lonnie could be a Leechette. Wasn't there a Lizardman villain in MOTU already? Anyway, wasted potential for homages on those three.

- the 13 Princesses don't work. I count
1. Angela - she was in the circle
2. Glimmer
3. Perfuma
4. Mermista
5. Frosta
6. Entrapta - Horde
7. Scorpia - Horde
8. Netossa
9. Spinnerella
--- name dropped at the Prom invites
10. Sweet Bee
11. Peekablue
12. Star Sisters
---
13. Castaspella - Mystacor has a rune stone
14. Princess with horns - in the circle.
15+. Adora mentioned other princesses at the Prom invite but I forgot their names.

So how does that go?

- toys! If they make Entrapta and Scorpia, I'm totally getting them! Entrapta better have prehensile hair and tiny food! Scorpia should have hugging action!

Its likely some of these princesses are related and their kingdoms united, prehaps the original intent was for 13 kingdoms but someone changed it along the way, yet nothing is prefect.

I mean, Angela and Glimmer are both visible in the hologram, suggesting that mother and daughter represent two different kingdoms.

(My going theory is that Glimmer's father was from a different kingdom, so Glimmer has inherited his genetic link to a rune stone distinct from her mother's link to Brightmoon.)

There's princesses without gems and gems without princesses.  Some of the princesses are purely political leaders, not related to the original gemholders.  For instance, Entrapta does not seem to be a gem-descended princess, and Scorp's family lost her gem.

From what I remember, the Black Garnet is Scorpia's gem.

I want EVERY Princess to have a Runestone! Entrapta would be unstoppable with one! Unstoppable!

Love the idea that Angela uses the Moonstone and Glimmer has a different one from King Micah's kingdom. A Sunrock maybe? Glimmer would be the child of night and day.

Doesn't Castaspella's big gem that shield's Mystacor count as her Runestone? And Perfuma's Hearts-seed-something?

The Black Garnet is Scorpia's (family's) gem, but she doesn't seem to have a connection to it, based on Entrapta's observations.

Though a Scorpia-shaped silhouette is visible in the princess lineup, so maybe she's still "logged in" as it were. Or maybe she has a twin sister who was only mentioned in Force Captain orientation.

I enjoyed Catra missing the orientation joke, while it lasted, hehe.

Light Hope didn't actually give a number for the princesses, right? The show can just mess about the number, which would be sloppy writing but could get us more princesses.

I watched the Adora Prom planning scene again and she only mentioned Sweet Bee, Peekablue and Star Sisters after all.

I saw the She-Ra catalogue before and there were... three Star Sisters?

I remember the original Flutterina episode but she wasn't a princess. Just a villager cleaning lady who was given powers because she died (?) helping She-Ra.

Original Catra's cat shifting mask belonged to a queen of cats. They might change it to Catra secretly being a kidnapped baby of a cat kingdom, making her a princess too. (Which would be an AMAZING storyline, if they go for it)

Uh, there's a toy of a lady named Double Trouble?

Who knows, Light Spinner might be a princess too.

Man, there should be a toyline for this. From googling, there's only She-Ra and Catra and that's a shame.

Given how long it takes to produce, I wonder if they were working almost on spec, hoping they got the official word.  Licensed stuff is always tricky, even if it's successful the licensor might decide to go in a different direction and cancel the show.

I think probably Netflix has the clout and the patience to buy a firm go ahead and then sit on a show in production for a long enough time to have a full run that they are sitting on for future releases.

-ZacWilliam, they certainly seem to sit on confirmed finished seasons of other shows for a decently long time before doing staggered partial releases.

I swear I read Dreamworks basically committed to doing the show as 4 13 episode blocks, even if Netflix proved to not be on board the full way. So the whole show is seemingly in the can already.
