Something something... corn bread?

@  MEDdMI : (17 July 2019 - 07:21 AM)

Ok, ok. Enough of the puns and let's all thank Kal for the amaizeing job he did.

@  Paladin : (17 July 2019 - 06:24 AM)

by now I think this jokes' been creamed.

@  Paladin : (16 July 2019 - 08:43 PM)

huh. suddenly the Squawk is popping.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 July 2019 - 07:47 PM)

Not placing much stalk in this conversation.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 06:22 PM)

That's so corny.

@  Shrug : (16 July 2019 - 06:07 PM)

It's absurd how happy I am that a post of mine made the front page of Reddit.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 July 2019 - 05:46 PM)

Aww, shucks.

@  TriBlurr : (16 July 2019 - 05:26 PM)

We have a cornfield? Can I get a few ears?

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:56 PM)

And lastly, if it becomes too much hassle to deal with - it might just get sent into the cornfield and replaced with a Discord box anyway. So cool it.

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Second thing is we do actually have the ability to ban users specifically from using Shoutbox if it's being abused like that

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Hey all - just a reminder and heads up. The Shoutbox has been kept here as a courtesy because it's what you folks like in lieu of Discord - but a few things to remember is that P&R should stay in P&R and isn't really something that needs to be dragged out here in the most public of spaces.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Done.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 July 2019 - 10:25 AM)

You can make a new one. I doubt anybody would stop you.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 10:16 AM)

There was a thread but it appears to have disappeared. Might have been lost in one of the older forum sweeps.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 July 2019 - 09:58 AM)

Yeah this is pretty much circumventing the fact that we have different rules for political talk.

@  fourteenwings : (16 July 2019 - 09:55 AM)

Okay, so, basically, can we not do politics in here anymore? I mean, considering how often @Nevermore, you talk about your work conditions, don't you think it's time for a dedicated thread in P&R?

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 09:39 AM)

Scratch that; that's insulting to honest salads. Whatever that was was the text equivalent of hamburger.

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 09:38 AM)

Would you like some dressing to go with your word salad?

@  Paladin : (16 July 2019 - 09:34 AM)

yes; it now goes "shit piss hug *BLEEP* ^$@^ motherhuger **** turd fart encyclopedia & Socialism."

This is an American site, but isn't that unnecessarily severe language? IIRC it's one of the top four offensive pejoratives to English people

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 July 2019 - 08:52 AM)

It's amusing how so many (U.S.) wankers in this world love to whine "capitalism good socialism bad!" in the abstract while simultaneously pretending that megacorporations dominating de facto monopolies is anathema to the core capitalistic principle of competition benefits everyone.

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 05:17 AM)

I know Shockwave's super mode is pretty lame and Magnus is kinda greebly but it's not that bad.

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 July 2019 - 12:38 AM)

Though with the luck and caliber of leaders we've had of late in the darkest timeline, maybe it's too much to hope for.

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 July 2019 - 12:36 AM)

Just like democracy, it's not perfect but better than the present alternatives. Capitalism as it's practiced today won't be able to weather the coming wave of automation, though. Best to plan for it and hope for a gentle transition rather than the aforementioned collapse

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 12:27 AM)

Capitalism is the worst amiright? Sent from my iPhone

@  Vexwing : (15 July 2019 - 11:24 PM)

Because the collapse is gonna be just great.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 July 2019 - 10:41 PM)

Let's hope this is late stage and we're on the cusp of something better.

@  abates : (15 July 2019 - 09:45 PM)

Late stage capitalism is the absolute best.

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 July 2019 - 01:33 PM)

So, welcome to all retail, everywhere.

@  Nevermore : (15 July 2019 - 01:24 PM)

Oh, and Greenpeace also conducted a protest at a German Amazon facility, to protest against Amazon's practice of throwing customer returns in the trash.

@  Nevermore : (15 July 2019 - 01:17 PM)

Right, because with Amazon, it's just the employees that have to step in dog shit while having no space to breathe.[/slightexaggeration]

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (15 July 2019 - 01:03 PM)

At least I can use Amazon without losing the ability to breath or step in dog shit.

@  RichardT1977 : (15 July 2019 - 12:58 PM)

Considering that Amazon is the new Walmart...

@  Nevermore : (15 July 2019 - 12:39 PM)

All of my best wishes go out to the brave women and men who have the balls (and ovaries) to go on strike at an Amazon facility in the US.

@  Nevermore : (15 July 2019 - 12:38 PM)

Speaking of. Not only are we in Germany on strike today, but so is the fulfillment center in Shakopee, Minnesota!

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 July 2019 - 12:36 PM)

Overnight delivery is the right of all sentient beings.

@  RichardT1977 : (15 July 2019 - 12:34 PM)

(and is it sexist of me to assume that a character named "Amazon Prime" would be feminine?)

@  RichardT1977 : (15 July 2019 - 12:34 PM)

Whenever she was summoned, she would arrive the next day?

I'm sure some of you know what I mean.  After a while, your collection of movies, TV shows, books, comics and video games exceeds the amount of time or energy that you have to consume it all and then it just keeps growing and growing to a point where you can no longer decide what to read/watch/play next.  Or am I the only one with this problem?

I bought my wife the DVD Push when we first started dating. She watched it, handed it to me, and begged me to watch it myself. I promised her I would.

 

That was nine years ago. The pile hasn't gotten any smaller since.

It's videogames for me this year. I'm in the middle of Route C of NieR: Automata and oh my god I'm freaking out at how great this game is. Then I have the DLC to Xenoblade 2 to go. I still need to get the Royal Pack for FFXV, that'll probably happen when Episode Ardyn nears release. January has Kingdom Hearts 3 looming. I still have to do the Story Mode for SoulCalibur VI. And I still need to do Dragonball FighterZ Story Mode as well.

But in the current, digitized world, trivial information is accumulating every second, preserved in all its triteness. Never fading, always accessible. Rumors about petty issues, misinterpretations, slander... All this junk data preserved in an unfiltered state, growing at an alarming rate. It will only slow down social progress, reduce the rate of evolution. You seem to think that our plan is one of censorship. What we propose to do is not to control content, but to create context.

Book Shelves. I made a decree about five years ago to stop buying new media until I've worked through the pile.

Books, films, TV shows, I'm fine.

 

Video games... I bought two PS2 titles a few years ago... I think they're Onimusha 2 and 3. Never even took em out of the shrinkwrap. They were dirt cheap though.

 

 

Now... D&D miniatures to paint... Oh boy, that, I have a lot to paint. A lot. A loooooooooooooooot.

My backlog is going to take more than one lifetime to clear. I get to make some very slow progress on TV shows and video games, but comic books and movies are just piling up ridiculously thanks to a combination of infrequently being in the mood to watch movies and the house never being quiet enough to enjoy a comic.



Almost Comics!

It's held more or less. Only really the Marvel catalog has been added to the pile on that front.

 

Honestly, delving through the pile has been a long standing goal of mine in the form of a "Late to the Party" review show. But as with everything, that too has been shelved.

My backlog's so bad I don't even know what's in it. Before I went broke I used to have a bad habit of buying movies by the boxload.

 

That isn't why I went broke but It didn't help.

I could probably finish all the media in my backlog if I dedicate like a whole year to it and not start anything else but that sounds like a bit much.

Buried on almost all fronts except for podcasts, I drive a lot for work so it's hard to actually build up much of a backlog for long. I don't care for audiobooks so unfortunately I can't two kill two birds with one stone with those. The rest I can't imagine ever getting caught up on any of it, but that's a good problem to have!

 

I've only bought a relative handful of games over the last two years just because there's so many yet to be played in my Steam and GOG libraries that there's not much point buying additional stuff right now unless it's something I'd play right this second like Mount & Blade: Bannerlord (if it ever actually gets released.) And I've sat out the current generation of consoles; heaven help me if I need to get caught up on those, too.

 

Movies, TV, and anime are really piling up because right now I'm in a temporary set up. My brother and I bought a property with a couple houses so I'm hanging out in his until mine is done being remodeled which has been one speed bump after another but I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. Another aim is we're going to convert one of the outbuildings into a home theater. So since I'm just watching stuff on a 23 inch monitor right now I've limited what I watch quite a bit and am saving most of it for when I have a real set up in my house or the grand prize in a couple years, the theater room. I stopped streaming 15 minutes into the original Clash of the Titans the other night because I'd never seen it before, but was really digging it and want to watch on it something better than my monitor.

 

Which is admittedly silly, because with my luck when things are all ready to go I'll choke on some popcorn and die or something.

Mount & Blade: Bannerlord (if it ever actually gets released.)

 

Kingdom Come: Deliverance is actually scratching that itch surprisingly well for me. It's not 1 for 1, but it's something.

I've got Ultraman Dyna and most of Cosmos to watch, but MOTW Ultraman isn't something I can binge too well without multitasking.. well, with some exceptions anyways.  *eyes Mebius*  I also keep meaning to go watch Orville but have yet to get around to it.  That's about it show-wise, unless I get around to go back to the showa Kamen Rider series, but I sort of fell off that boat a while ago.

 

Game-wise I do have some I never played, but I don't have any intentions of playing a bunch of them either, just got them because they were free just in case. Starlink was the biggest one, and I beat that over my Christmas break from work. I suppose there's my way too many alts on Star Trek Online(which I picked up again recently) but I'm managing that by only doing a few specific things on them that are time-gated, and focusing on one thing at a time. It has made me remember why I really got to hate doing Admiralty on all my alts though.
