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

It's not on 4K yet. Sure would be nice, though

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

@  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...

Happy new year! And welcome back!

 

I've actually lost count of how many of these we've done, but we all know the drill at this point. The thread is dedicated towards helping each other achieve weight goals, exercise goals, change our lifestyles and eating habits in favour of healthier ones.

 

Welp, after reviewing the totals from last year, we WANTONLY overshot on the reps, and fell slightly short on miles. So, here's this year community goals:

 

-Miles; 5000

-Uppers: 50,000

-Lowers: 25,00

-Core: 25,000

 

And remember: the point isn't to meet the arbritary numbers assigned by some shmuck on the first of the year. The point is to change ourselves for the better.

 

I was actually going to take a 3.5 mile run on the elliptical this morning: but one of my plague bearer kin gave me a wicked cold. Every time I cough I feel like I'm going to rip out my lung valve assembly.

Nothing to contribute yet but, recording for posterity, it's Jan 3, 2019 and my weight is 154.2 lbs.

(Yes, I gained weight from the New Year's Eve buffet that I haven't lost yet. Darn it!).

With the Allspark Exercise Community as my witness, I will reach 135 lbs before 2020! It is my vision and it will not be in hindsight when eye attain said target then lose it! (and other eyeglasses related puns)

So I haven’t ran since the first half of December. The temps are to cold for me to run first thing in the morning. By the time they are warming up my wife has to get ready for work so I’m on kid duty. On days of work I don’t have time after to go because I gotta get home before my wife leaves for work. Weekends are about it anymore it feels like and I work every other one. With a second kid arriving at the end of this month it’s going to be that much harder. I had 816 miles last year which was about 250 less than 2017. Hopefully I can find the time to get the miles back up.

Still motivated to run a half marathon this year. Just gotta get out and train.

Good luck to everybody and their goals this year. Really impressed with this group and how we have stayed after it from year to year and how we manage to pick up one or 2 new members every year.

Just doing pull ups again. Have to build myself up to being able to do 10 x5 different types so can attempt a one armed pull up again.

First mile swim of the year. It also just felt like an average Friday afternoon at the gym. Maybe the new year resolutionists are felt more during peak hours? (which I am fortunate enough to be able to avoid.)

I didnt get a chance to update on Friday, but my son asked to workout with me. He did so good! He just turned 11, and I told him that if he keeps this up, by 16 hes gonna be ripped!

We did chest that day, and then lower body yesterday. I gave him today off, and I did some cardio with a stretch.

434 days in a row now! I dont have the body I want, but we moved our gym to our front porch (its enclosed with windows all around). I got hot power walking. So I took off my shirt. Take that small village onlookers, haha!

(My wife said its a good thing it was dark outside!)

It's good your kid wants to exercise with you. Get some good information and good habits into him NOW while it's still fairly easy to change his habits.

Today was upper body. Going to have my son walk on the treadmill when he gets home from school (first day back for them finally).

I had an idea last night that Im going to try to do: walk for at least 10 minutes after a strength training workout. I also started tracking a new stat: total move calories burned (a stat my Apple Watch gives me). So far (not counting today, since I cant get the current days totals until the day is over): 4,497.
