@  wonko the sane? : (08 April 2020 - 08:42 AM)

It is. Thankfully, we don't use the thing too often. It was purchased to help take down one tree and spends about 362 days a year sitting in the shop.

@  Darkstream : (08 April 2020 - 08:23 AM)

Sounds tedious

@  wonko the sane? : (07 April 2020 - 06:25 PM)

grinding wheel on a dremel and a lot of patience.

@  Darkstream : (07 April 2020 - 06:11 PM)

What do you use to sharpen it? I was debating buying one of those kits on Amazon

@  wonko the sane? : (07 April 2020 - 11:49 AM)

Wasn't the first time. I probably did it one of the times the chain jumped the blade, or when I was cleaning it or sharpening it.

@  Darkstream : (07 April 2020 - 11:38 AM)

Sounds like something I'd do. I always install things backwards first.

@  wonko the sane? : (07 April 2020 - 07:32 AM)

Not while I'm outside working with the chainsaw. If it's working fine: then I don't need it. If it's NOT working; I use hand tools cause there is a job that brought me out there. No time to read.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 April 2020 - 03:07 AM)

You can Google manuals these days.

@  wonko the sane? : (06 April 2020 - 06:06 PM)

I can't. One: we don't know where dad hide the damn manual. Not that he read it either. And 2.) I'm congenitally incapable of reading it, being as I'm male.

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 April 2020 - 01:52 PM)

Lesson learned: RTFM.

@  wonko the sane? : (06 April 2020 - 11:45 AM)

It's time for todays lesson! Did you know there's a wrong way to install a chainsaw blade? I didn't. I thought the damn thing was just blunted, but nope. Backwards.

@  CORVUS : (05 April 2020 - 06:41 PM)

CONTAGION is on my current watchlist. I'm kicking it off with OUTBREAK, and I have a whole lineup of pandemic-based films. I treat this stuff as a fear-innoculant.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (05 April 2020 - 03:52 PM)

My point is that of late, Taiwan's government executed lockdown procedures to great success. Vietnam has done similarly.

Didn't SARS just suddenly stop before it got very far?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (05 April 2020 - 03:24 PM)

*raises eyebrows due to familial knowledge of SARS*

@  Steevy Maximus : (05 April 2020 - 01:43 PM)

It was uncomfortably real in 2011, it's downright scary in relation to the current pandemic.

@  Steevy Maximus : (05 April 2020 - 01:42 PM)

It is, almost to an uncomfortable point.The virus portrayed in that film was FAR more aggressive and fatal than Coronavirus, but the sourcing and spread and impact hit REALLY close to home compared to what we're dealing with now

@  Maximus Ambus : (05 April 2020 - 04:50 AM)

Actually on the subject, I've hard a lot of people refer to a 2011 film called Contagion that they think is relevant.

@  Maximus Ambus : (05 April 2020 - 01:11 AM)

Ah well, I'll stick to the classic British sitcoms: One Foot in the Grave, Til Death Do Us Part and They Think It's All Over.

@  TM2-Megatron : (05 April 2020 - 12:53 AM)

There's always the original, cheesy as it is

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (05 April 2020 - 12:10 AM)

Dunno... Tonight one of the major networks showed a movie with plagues.. including that listening to their leader causes the first born to die. ;P So nah.. I think the Stand could work. :D

@  TM2-Megatron : (04 April 2020 - 09:18 PM)

That's probably the last thing anyone needs to see, at the moment. Maybe when we get to the end of June/beginning of July and we can venture back out, it might be possible to find some enjoyment in The Stand.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 April 2020 - 02:08 PM)

I suppose the CBS adaptation of Stephen Kings The Stand will be delayed.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 12:41 PM)

It arrived! Yay!

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 11:25 AM)

Given how the virus lasts about 3-4 days on metals and plastics, it's about the only way to go about getting stuff right now. I ordered a monitor mount for my desk and the delivery has been pushed back twice already.

@  Maximus Ambus : (03 April 2020 - 11:04 AM)

He ordered it online, says it was to keep those delivery boys in business. I did the same a week ago with some Transformers Studio Series figures off Kapow. Don't know if it's wise or not considering.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 09:12 AM)

You'd be the first. Everyone else has either been frustrated cause the one they wanted was sold out (like during boxing week.) or rushing to replace something broken.

@  RYNO : (03 April 2020 - 08:53 AM)

I actually walked into a store the other day and just randomly decided to buy at 32inch TV. It was just a Vizio, and grabbed a Mounting Bracket for it. No duress. Just a spur of the moment wanted a TV for my master bedroom.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 07:31 AM)

Conversely: I've never met a person who wasn't buying a TV under duress... so... yeah.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 07:20 AM)

I think I've met maybe two people other than myself who count cables before buying a TV.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (03 April 2020 - 05:33 AM)

Seriously.. HDMI splitters and switches are so bloody finicky, but most tvs don't have enough inputs.

@  Maximus Ambus : (03 April 2020 - 05:09 AM)

Just spent a hour trying to get my brothers new Samsung TV to read his Playstation and Blu Ray player only to find he was using a HDMI splitter.

@  Sabrblade : (01 April 2020 - 08:58 PM)

This morning, for one of my online classes, I had to give a positive oral presentation about a play that I hated having to watch. I went into it completely unprepared and just winged it. My professor LOVED my presentation and thought it was excellent. She believed every word I said and honestly thought that I enjoyed that miserable play. Best April Fools ever!

Since all interest in the show here seems to have died at the end of season five I dare post this about the recently aired first episode of season seven.

I liked Deaths reappearance however he doesn't seem to be all that powerful given that he can be bound by humans.
This God in Supernatural sounds more like a being that screwed with the natural order within the universe rather then the creator of the universe.
And here's a thought, what if the Apocalypse is still ongoing? Castiel may have shot himself in the foot killing so many Angels.

'Hello Cruel World'
HIGHLIGHT to view:

Through the water mains Leviathans are loosed on Bobby's hometown of Sioux Falls taking over various people like demons and angels only they can shape shift them as one who took a little girl later takes a doctors form. While vulnerable they appear to be able to regenerate their forms. They aren't invulnerable but they appear indestructible as one host is crushed but the pool of blood or Leviathan goop is shown receding, maybe returning to it's host.
Unless this is a two or three parter, it looks like the show has taken a new format and with the removal of Bobby and Castiel I suspect this Sheriff Jodie Mills will become a supporting character.

One thing bugs me about Castiel, his human host Jimmy Novak's family was featured in the season 4 episode 'The Rapture' and this host has taken a pummeling these past few seasons, so is he dead or what? He's been blown up by Angels, usually the hosts die when the angels do so is Jimmy dead too? They never returned to this.

Yes Jimmy is dead, as far as the rest of the team knows... but it's a tv show, they'll have a means to bring him back if they need to... and we don't know where bobby is...

Episode 3HIGHLIGHT to view:

Jewel Stait from Firefly and Stargate Atlantis is the monster of the week, she's similar to the one from season fours Metamorphosis only she kills again to save her child from a sickness. She had a brief encounter with fifteen year old Sam who killed her mother and let her go (due to his teen hormones) and while Sam spares her this time, Dean goes to see her behind Sams back and kills her, I think it is foolish he spared the kid given his history with other similar creatures.
Last week ended on a cliffhanger with Bobby's yard burned down and the boys badly injured and headed to the very hospital they fought Leviathans in, this episode begins with Bobby just popping up alive, pulling them out, taking them to one of Rufus place and neither seems to question how or why which is very disappointing given the enemies they face capable of possessing them.
While I am all for standalone episodes I'm not sure this is working they shouldn't throw the Leviathans in every episode for the sake of it, aside from a amusing cheesy ending they do nothing in this one.
And where's the Angels and Demons? surely they'd want to assess the threat of the Leviathans at this early stage.

Episode Four:
Another Pagan only one who can summon ghosts turns up, it is the ancient Egyptian god Osiris who is there to pass judgement on Dean who is still fretting Sam will find out about him killing his girlfriend monster. He summons Jo to tell Dean he carries a lot of crap which ties in nicely to the season four episode where the boys dealt with ghosts of Megs host, Agent Henrickson and the guy who took hostages at the bank in season 2. With god gone, the angels and demons depleted perhaps the Pagans will play a bigger role in the series.
Episode Five
James Marsters and Charisma Carpenter turns up as a bickering couple set for divorce due to cheating, the twist is that they are witches. I didn't really realise it was them until I read wikipedia. The episode was terrible especially the ending, the brothers try to stop them but take a pounding while getting the two to reconcile then they are allowed to leave only to run into a Leviathan though James Marsters character paralyses it, that's the main 'big bad' of the season brought down by a witch.

Episode Six
I am not seeing anything about this anywhere, I guess it was a bit too dark for some.
It begins with the Winchesters going into a bank Dean hitting on a teller like he would then the brothers seal the place, force everyone into a vault and then open fire on them.
The episode was about the Leviathans posing as Dean and Sam (thanks to hair samples they got from a motel) and they to bring the two down so they go on a killing spree working their way from where the brothers began in season one, the real Winchesters go off the grid to hunt the two down but the show ends revealing the Leviathans have seized high places in the FBI and possibly other organisations, the Leviathan leader there is visited by Crowly who has a peace offering but he's told to shove off.

Did anyone else watch Deaths Door?
It was all about Bobby, who took a bullet to the head from the chief Leviathan in the last episode, now he's at Deaths door and flatlines at the end of the episode.
The thing is, the episode could have served as the characters swansong, I honestly can't think of a better send off and the cliffhanger sort of brings it down.

The producers have said that this season's arc is about taking away everything the boys have. They've lost Cas, they've lost the Impala, they've lost their usual aliases, they've lost Bobby's library, and now they've lost Bobby himself.

They haven't quite lost each other yet. I'm guesing that's next. . .

I don't really care for this Leviathan story arc of Supernatural, I think they should just kill off the leader at the end of this season and have the Leviathans become small time monsters like Vampires and demons, then have season 8 just be standalones featuring the odd changeling, Djinn and ghost to come full circle.

This season is notable for the absence of the Angels who would surely be wanting to do something about the Leviathans, the demons too are gone, they had Crowly turn up a quarter of the way in then tell the boys he'd give them a wide berth to fight the Leviathans. What's stupid is the Leviathans seem powerless with no access to heaven and hell and have a weakness they could easily exploit.

The next episode apparently has two Archangels fighting over a new prophet, it's not a stretch to figure out who since there were only four and two left!

I got into this show thanks to a friend loaning me the first season on DVD about a year and a half ago. Since then I've slowly been buying the seasons on DVD, and just last week managed to catch up fully with the last episode of season 7. I have to say I -LOVE- this show.

Season 6 I'll admit took me a while to get into, it wasn't until HIGHLIGHT to view:
Sam got his soul back that it 'felt' like Supernatural again.

For Season 7, I've REALLY been enjoying it. I like the Leviathans, as you can't really 'kill' them. Just slow them down.

Though it does bring up a question that's been bugging me all season...

Where is the Colt, and do we KNOW it won't kill a Leviathan!?

Edited by videomaster21XX, 06 May 2012 - 08:16 PM.

That's a very good question, in season 5 Lucifer was shot and revived, he said the colt can't kill five things, presumably three were archangels, god and death though the last two may be the same species and Lucifer may not be familiar with Leviathans.

I liked the episode and the end where the Leviathan took out the angels casually was exactly what they need to be serious villains.

Are you referring to the leviathan killing the angels? Im pretty sure that was a something the leviathan did not the angels anatomy. Angels bleed red blood as witnessed when Cazz used his own blood to banish himself and other angels a while back.
