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)

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)

"DECOMPOSE!"

@  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)

@  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...

I took three weeks, but I finally got a doctors appointment... for the walk in clinic. I dunno when they changed that, but it doesn't make any sense to me either.

 

Edit: worked though. Instead of the 12-14 hour wait in a waiting room, I sat around for about 50 minutes before seeing the doctor. 10 days of antibiotics and a nasal spray to help clear my sinus infection. Hopefully my LAST illness this year, as I am getting really sick of being sick.

There. Other than the cat food, the dishwasher, the oven and the coffee maker: we are officially moved out of the kitchen. The rest goes in the morning where in the demolition begins in earnest. 10 to 14 days from now, we will have a brand spanking new kitchen.

 

Edit: alright, slightly LESS feel good time. While it's wonderful what's going to happen... while it's happening, this place won't feel like home. Between the strange people running around making noise, the kitchen spread around the rest of the house, and literally nothing being where it's supposed to be... oh, and all the animals sulking,it's going to be a long couple of weeks.

So in the past two days I have made two dishes that I have never made before.

Voodoo Chicken and Chinese hot/sour soup.

I am extremely proud of both but the fact that I perfected my second Asian dish ever really makes me happy.
If you have Steven Universe leaks please let me know. I need them.

Day 1 of construction: Everything is entirely on schedule. In fact, they're a touch ahead because it seems like they don't need to insulate the walls.

 

Day 2 of construction: oh, yeah, we were mistaken about the insulation. It's gonna take us longer to get that done.

 

Okay, all things considered, still feeling pretty good about all this. They copped to the mistake, and managed to find it out while still in the demolition phase, so NBD. They brought in another guy to help with the additional tear down so it's going quickly, and realistically speaking: none of the walls were actually all that big, so it's not a huge job. The electrician is in today, and the tile guy for the floor will be in thursday. The cabinets arrive on the 19th.

 

Frankly: I'm happy that I don't have to do this for once. I would normally prefer to be responsible for my own renovations, but it would have taken months do it on our own. None of us have the patience for that kind of shit anymore.

Alright, Day...5? Yeah. The kitchen walls are insulated and giprock is back up. Most of the wiring is done, the plumbing is mostly done. The floor has been nicely reinforced. The tile guy (who was supposed to start yesterday, but didn't.) starts early on monday. Mudding will be done next week.

 

On the personal front: we just cleared out one of three attics in the house (don't be jealous, they aren't so much attics as they are over glorified crawl spaces my hoarder father managed to shove crap into.) in preparation for re-insulating the roof. We're doing the second one tomorrow, and hope to get enough of that one that we can safely put all the crap we have to keep from the first in there. So that when it comes time to get the insulation guys in: all we have to empty is one the attic and we won't gloves and breathers to actually do it. But none of that can get done till the kitchen is finished.

Day 6: can't even boil water tonight. Winds make using the barbeque more than a little problematic.

 

In a few days we'll look back and laugh.

Okay, so kitchen update: Other than some painting and cleaning, it's DONE! We put the stove, fridge, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker and most of the small appliances back in. No dishes until after they finish sanding and painting (which will be next week.) and they send the cleaning lady. At least we can cook properly again.

 

I loved the quality and speed of their work, and frankly, I loved not having to do it myself. While it's been a frustrating few weeks, it's almost over.

The cleaning lady left at 9 something pm after six HOURS of work scrubbing down the kitchen. She was thorough, and it is CLEAN. We then spent the next 40 minutes reshelving... the pantry. We haven't even touched the dishes yet. Still, getting there. It'll be fun to get to the point where we can actually bake something.
