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)


@  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)


@  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...

well it isn't - so that's the good news. The bad news is the Universe doesn't care one way or the other, it isn't fickle and flipflopping on cosmic whims whether it sends you good vibes or bad. 


but that's also Good news. because it is one less REALLY BIG thing to worry about  XD

This is true. More cooperation at work would help, though. Hopefully, that situation will improve once we get our new supervisor in place.

Here's a bit of personal vulnerability from yours truly, which Hellcat can attest that I'm terrible about sharing. Trying to be better. Past few months I've been dealing with serious bouts of depression and the suicidal ideation that always accompanies them. I've recently gotten back in touch with my therapist and begun transitioning to a new antidepressant. It just didn't feel like the old one/dosage was doing it for me anymore. While I wait for the change to actually be felt I've just focused on the basic tasks of day-to-day functioning, like running errands, keeping the home clean, or cooking dinner for the family.

Had assessment for counselling. Cost me £40.


It mostly went well. The big comment was they feel I'm very self aware and are impressed with how much I've considered certain things (why I feel like I do, why I was abused, etc). The one hiccup was a bit where I mentioned I seem to set people off when I really want the exact opposite. They got the impression there I'm just very tactless and don't perceive how flippant comments upset people. I tried to explain I actually think a lot before I say anything but they didn't seem convinced.

I don't want to keep bumping this thread just because it falls to the second page, particularly if it isn't needed anymore. So I'm just going to ask, is this thread still needed? Has it done someone some good?

If so can I request a sticky so I'm not needlessly bumping it every so often? If not, just say and I'll let it get buried.

I just ran a 10K and I feel surprisingly motivated this week.  I can't say they're definitely related, but exercise really seems to help.

It's been my go to for stress relief/ 'black cloud' days as I call them.   My Diabetes doctor and therapist have both been pleased with the results, it doesn't seem like much when I'm doing it, but it's a 'small victories add up' kind of thing.

The problem for me is the catch-22 nature of exercise.  I need to be not depressed to exercise, and I need exercise to not be depressed.  I wish I had someone around to force me to go, but I'm kind of on my own here.

I used to use 'spite' as a motivator.. is there anyone you could use for "I'll get healthy and in shape, that will show them.."  Not saying it was the healthiest way, but it got my butt out of the chair.

god this is probably gonna be the stupidest thing i write...but im hinestly having a real hard time dealing with this.


When i was around 15, i bought a used cd ffrom the local record store...it had an interesting cover and just seemed like somethng i might like. The album as the 2-disc version of LEATHERSTRIP - Double Or Nothing. It was my first real exposure to EBM. it blew my mind! it changed how i thought about music, it was dark, depresssing, fun, sad, happy...in the months and few years after that i bought every album He released in america.


Tonight, at the club we used to go to, LEATHERSTRIP is performing. With everything wrong with me, and how muh it hurts to sit in the wheelchair for long periods of time, i will not be attending said performance.


I know this is just the first of many things, like NYCC, that ill be missing from now on...i dont know even know how to process this. i'm not only physically broken, im hearbroken. i feel like every day i wake up i have to have a small funeral in my mind for eveyrthing i used to be.


I still feel like my death was stolen from me. I gave my parents 6 months when i got home. 6 months to prove to them how horrible my life is, and will be. theyre down to 5. So far? looks like im gonna win this one.
