@  TM2-Megatron : (20 August 2019 - 06:06 PM)

In its current form, DS9 is eventually going to fade from the public consciousness. Even on modern top-of-the-line displays, those old SD masters look like trash, and there's only so long younger generations will be able to stomach them. I can only imagine how they'll look when everyone has ultra-short throw projectors casting 120" images on their walls

@  TM2-Megatron : (20 August 2019 - 06:05 PM)

It's definitely offputting, but Trek is one property I'd be willing to hold my nose and open my wallet for. I care far more about DS9 being available in the long-term, and for future generations, than my distaste for corporate greed

@  Rycochet : (20 August 2019 - 05:39 PM)

'Pay up now and fund this remaster we'll be able to profit from for decades, as this will be your only chance to get that show you like on BluRay... Until the superdeluxe re-release with even more stuff and a metal box.'

@  Rycochet : (20 August 2019 - 05:14 PM)

Stuff they're intending to remaster anyway for their streaming service would become crowdfunding projects.

@  Rycochet : (20 August 2019 - 05:09 PM)

I love DS9, but there is something offputting about giving money direct to Viacom for a project like this, probably because it would set a bad precedent. Given how moneygrubbing they are, it would quickly become their go-to solution for any old show they want remastered rather than dipping their hands in their own deep pockets.

@  TM2-Megatron : (20 August 2019 - 02:48 PM)

A crowdfunding probably wouldn't be that outrageous. The DS9 Documentary "What We Left Behind" that was recently released on blu-ray managed to raise nearly $650,000 on IndieGoGo. Imagine how much fans might contribute if it were guaranteed the remaster would happen provided the goal was reached.

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 August 2019 - 04:10 AM)

Let me call on my friend Dr Rockso, the Rock 'n Roll Clown. (He does cocaine.)

@  Nutjob R/T : (20 August 2019 - 12:48 AM)

New crowdfunding project: We need to get enough nose candy for the Paramount execs to keep 'em up long enough to get DS9 squeezed out

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 August 2019 - 04:36 PM)

They're hideously cheap. I'm just glad some decision maker in the upper echelons stayed high as a kite for long enough for us to get TOS, TNG and TAS on blu-ray

@  Rycochet : (19 August 2019 - 04:16 PM)

Paramount are kinda cheap and Ds9 isn't popular enough for them to go all out on a remaster.

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 August 2019 - 03:37 PM)

Or hell, they could just shorten a season of Discovery by 2-3 episodes and that'd pay for the DS9 remaster in full (assuming the 8 to 8.5 million per episode for Discovery that was reported a while back is accurate)

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 August 2019 - 03:32 PM)

Redoing some of the more simple effects like phasers and transporters and whatnot (basically what they've already had practice doing for TNG)

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 August 2019 - 03:30 PM)

They could scan and rebuild the film elements, and then upscale the original CGI only (provided it still exists as separate footage)

@  Dekafox : (19 August 2019 - 02:33 PM)

Basically its in the same situation as DS9 IIRC with loss of models and how the CGI was applied to the existing footage.

@  Dekafox : (19 August 2019 - 02:32 PM)

Not gonna happen unless they recreate all the CGI from scratch, unfortunately. Or just upscale the broadcast masters, which would be basically pointless.

@  Maximus Ambus : (19 August 2019 - 02:16 PM)

Babylon 5 must come to Blu Ray.

His work is never done.

@  Pennpenn : (19 August 2019 - 03:06 AM)

Everyone quickly gets sick of flubbing the name and collectively agree to just call the combiner "Roadworks"

@  Sabrblade : (18 August 2019 - 09:34 PM)

For some reason, I've always wanted to see a "Menastator", all five Stunticons and all six Constructicons in an 11-piece combiner.

@  Maximus Ambus : (18 August 2019 - 01:35 PM)

Dunno what we'd call a Megatron combiner, we almost got a Megastator in IDW but nothing in Combiner Wars.

@  Paladin : (18 August 2019 - 01:30 PM)

somehow read that as "Megachronic." wonder if Decepticons get the munchies...

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 August 2019 - 11:30 AM)

Skywarp can barely form a coherent sentence half the time.

@  Maximus Ambus : (18 August 2019 - 11:24 AM)

If Cyclonus combines into Galvatronus, does Skywarp form Megatronic?

@  Pennpenn : (18 August 2019 - 09:12 AM)

There's something weird about starting to type Good Omens into a media store's search bar and having it come up with Queen's greatest hits compliations.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (18 August 2019 - 12:07 AM)

Well then they need to re-release Vector Prime. :D Of course I would accept Vector Prime Headmaster with Alpha Trion as the head.

@  unluckiness : (18 August 2019 - 12:05 AM)

That said, the bendy sword is ridiculous.

@  unluckiness : (18 August 2019 - 12:05 AM)

I dunno, the old one is still pretty good by modern standards and the clunkiness is somewhat in-character.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 August 2019 - 08:37 PM)

We need a new vector prime

I reached 139lbs! That's below the 140lbs I was going for. So now, I'm buying tuna (for protein after gym) and going to work on getting muscle mass.

Alright, managed to finally get a doctor's appointment, and now I have medication for the sinus infection. I should be right as rain in 10 days. Probably in a position to pick up where I left off in about 5. Seems this year is turning into a year to spend money on myself, and I mean useful stuff not transformers and video games. My next expense is going to be new glasses. At least I didn't have to pay or travel ridiculously to see the doctor.

Been doing an everyday day X = X push ups, X pull ups, X leg, X plank challenge but haven't really been adding them up cuz the increments were small (and I was lazing on the math) but it's day 23 so they we're adding up.

Leg day, a mile swim, and a 4 mile run/walk. 
I'm excited for the run/walk which I did today. My attempts last year were disastrous, compared to what I use to be able to do. And overall I think I was just weaker/heavier. At my best years ago I was doing 7 miles all running. 5 miles all running was the solid norm for quite a while. So today I ran 2 of the miles, walked the other two, broken up in roughly half mile increments, my first stretch of running was closer to 3/4 mile. So I'm looking forward to next weekend and the promised nearly 60 degree days to go again, I'm pretty sure I can hit a continuous mile running. I also did the 4 miles  6 minutes faster than my last time in July '18, which shows the stuff I've been doing this winter is paying off. And overall I just felt stronger than any of the times I ran last year.

There is a horse... I am back on it! I took a nice slow-ish run on the elliptical today. Felt like it took quite a bit out of me (pretty much a given, seeing how long it's been since I last ran.) and I've still got a couple of days on my antibiotics, but a good sweat felt really good.

I honestly cannot wait to get my bike back out. Despite the fact we're still getting snow and cold weather: it's mostly melting out there, so I'll literally be back on the saddle before you know it.

Ok, I reached my target weight (still fluxing and I still have a belly but muscle should fix that) so new goals for me.

April, I'll start eating tuna after gym, to get protein.

May, sleeeeeeeep early.

June, I'll start running two or three times a week so when the subdivision fun run happens in January 2020, I can reach 3rd place again, darn it!

Just remember man: your weight WILL fluctuate, and it's entirely normal, expected and DO NOT freak out over 2-3 pounds. So long as you keep eating well, and keep good exercise habits, you'll be where you want to be.

 

I took another run! I am setting no land speed records, but at least I'm back to it.

Got me 20 canned tuna and testing out 2 canned chicken. The tuna has more protein though.

And I've been bad with my diet and went back to 145lbs. Gosh, darn it, it's all because of eating out with friends, blarg!
