The music, if you'd even call it that, adds to the creepy atmosphere. Apparently it was recorded using sounds created in a real nuclear power plant of the same type as Chernobyl.

@  Nevermore : (15 December 2019 - 04:04 PM)

In case you haven't seen it yet, I highly recommend the HBO mini-series "Chernobyl", which is about, well, you know. It's very intense and not for the faint-heartet. I'd say it's more scary than any horror flick, because (despite some artistic liberties taken with the behavior of some of the characters, and the timeline for some events), it's eerily real.

@  Sabrblade : (15 December 2019 - 10:51 AM)

Hey, at least you baked a cake in the bathroom. Not many can attest to that. :p

@  wonko the sane? : (14 December 2019 - 05:51 PM)

Nope. Forgot entirely, had to make another trip.

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 December 2019 - 04:04 PM)

Well, did you get water?

@  wonko the sane? : (14 December 2019 - 01:56 PM)

Went to the bathroom, shaved, baked a cake... wait, I only got up to get some water...

@  unluckiness : (14 December 2019 - 09:01 AM)

That's a common misconception. You see compared to the first run, it's a new mold.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (14 December 2019 - 03:27 AM)

Wouldn't that just add packaging authenticity? :D

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 December 2019 - 01:44 AM)

I read a anecdote of someone recently receiving a Glacialord with mold because apparently online stores' warehouses have been sitting on Fansproject products like that for years.

Unlike many of his peers, Morton diesn't seem to have gone out of his way to try and take every drug going so he's aged remarkably well.

Doesn't seem to have been a market for it, which is too bad, because it perfectly does what it sets out to do.

Morten Harket of A-ha might have aged 35 years on the outside, but his voice is still pretty much the same as it was in 1984. That's some great training and exercise for you.

Cream cheese has to be on a bagel or crackers.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:31 PM)

(for example: I like Swiss cheese on sandwiches, but find it merely tolerable by itself)

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:30 PM)

I mean are you eating it by itself? With crackers? On a sandwich?

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 December 2019 - 04:48 PM)

I would ask, but I'd rather not know.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (12 December 2019 - 03:38 PM)

They were looking for Skids, but the animators forgot he existed again.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 02:58 PM)

He regrouped with Omega Supreme, the Dinobots, Skyfire and the Protectobots.

@  Benbot : (11 December 2019 - 08:20 AM)

Did he get infected with the rest of the Autobots or did he smartly remain off-planet?

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 December 2019 - 05:38 AM)

He really just went to the beach for a couple of days, then called it in. Who's gonna follow up on it?

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 05:05 AM)

Anyone really believe Cosmos searched far enough for more ingredient for Corrostop?

@  Nevermore : (11 December 2019 - 03:48 AM)

Oh, we are pretty good at "forgetting" about that. Insisting on sending people home on their overtime, THEN suddenly rushing to do the "backlog" stuff when it's really overdue.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 December 2019 - 05:43 PM)

I've yet to find an organization which didn't have a backlog of "stuff" that needs to be done, but isn't important enough to put on the schedule proper.

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 December 2019 - 05:01 PM)

I'm sure most good/bad (depending on your POV) bosses would be able to find something for the worker to do, in most cases, even if it's spending 8 hours pretending to push a broom around

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (10 December 2019 - 04:39 PM)

Still better than American jobs. x.x;

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 December 2019 - 11:10 AM)

I'm pretty sure you've already mentioned this before. Especially that last one.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:05 AM)

That can be fun if you're strong-willed enough. "Hey, you want to go home? Overtime reduction, there's nothing to do..." - "Nah, not today. I want to work."

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:04 AM)

This applies to the field of work as well. Meaning, your boss orders you to show up for a full shift, you show up on time and are absolutely willing to work, and then your boss realizes he has no work for you, your boss has to pay you for a full shift even if you don't work at all.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:03 AM)

Fun fact: German law has a concept named "default in acceptance", which postulates that if there is a "service for payment" contract, the party that should provide the service correctly offers their due service, and the party that should pay fails to accept the service within due time, the second party still has to pay the first party even if there was no service delivered.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:54 PM)

If it's seasonal affective disorder, check with your doc about vitamin D supplements.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:46 PM)

That's what I was thinking too, It's the christmas rush and if that's not stressful enough the cold weather can also impact mental health.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 12:41 PM)

Might be a stupid question given the comment, BUT: have you done anything outside the ordinary lately? Might just be a stress reaction.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:29 PM)

I've experienced sleep paralysis with ghostly images and similar things in the past and can snap out of it through moving my fingers. I've definitely hallucinated before and members of both sides of the family have had similar experience, some suffered forms of mental instability in two cases schizophrenia.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:47 AM)

So... either a hallucination or night terrors. Are you prone to this kind of thing?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:55 PM)

It kept repeating until I sat up.

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:54 PM)

I've been up since three and when sheepish I was hallucinating something knocking twice against my bedroom door.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 December 2019 - 06:58 PM)

Then repaint Apeface and Snapdragon as Transmetal Optimus Primal and Megatron. It's crazy enough to work.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 December 2019 - 05:32 PM)

Moral imperative.

@  Nevermore : (07 December 2019 - 05:13 PM)

Wishful thinking, rumor or leak?

Speaking of the GN-X, Samuel Decal is selling a purple LED unit for those of you who own the MG.

Looks worthwhile to me.

Huh? There's no such thing as a purple LED.

Not really accurate, anyways. IIRC, the chest condensers were never shown illuminated (and the MG certainly doesn't have any text in the chest, unlike the Exia), and the drive cone should be red like all the other GN[Tau] Drives.

Just sayin' icon-waspy.gif.

For purple glows, it's usually a paired red and blue LED. But given the small space involved in the Gundam lighting units, I'm surprised the pair could actually be crammed in that space properly.

The other issue there is that blue LEDs are so much more intense than red ones, the light usually doesn't blend well, with the blue simply overpowering the red (and I think those high-end model Lightsabers, specifically Mace Windu's, used a diffuser screen of somesort to blend the LED lights as well). So I'm rather curious about the electronics setup in those, if the guy actually managed to cram a resistor in there as well or something.

I've got a red unit from my Trans-Am Exia to give to my GN-X, so I'm cool on that front.

D'oh, speaking of Trans-Am Gundams, I totally forgot to pre-order the MG Trans-Am Raiser. Being a web-shop exclusive, of course the after-market prices are insane.

Luckily, BBTS still has a pre-order open, so at least I'm paying $160 for it (at a maybe ~$30 markup), and not $300 off of eBay...

So during the summer riots, a major Sony warehouse that stored various CDs and DVDs got torched. Beez's stock was in there and the result is there are now no more copies of Gundam Wing Remastered Part 1. Bad news for me, a guy who as I've said has finally been getting around to buying the UK complete collections. But the real sting? People have started putting copies on ebay for prices like ?225.

Class act, guys. Fans are being denied copies thanks to looters who grabbed what they wanted and then set fire to everything else. Your gross profiting from this is much the same.

From what a friend told me, they're likely true. Bandai released an image of a Zedas trading card and forgot to blur the text for a few hours. Fans translated it and it includes various info, including the apparent pilot.

Personally, am I the only one getting tired of the way GG does things? Between posting spoilers with little warning, dedicating huge posts to custom jobs he likes and now the uneeded unboxing videos, I'm really missing the likes of Gunota Headlines and Ngee Khiong.

I'm sorry? As far as I'm concerned, Yurin has always made me think of Hinata. The fact that I haven't associated her with a character/show I've never even heard of isn't a 'slow uptake'. We don't all spend our time trying to find counterparts like the Tohou fandom do.

I didn't think I was being rude, but if it came off that way I apologize.

However Working!! is a currently-airing show in its' second season and is insanely popular as well, and Yamada looks way more like Yurin then Hinata does.

Fanart reflects this, which is what I was pointing out.

It's understandable that the western fandom would compare her to Hinata due to lack of exposition to loli chinese dress girls in anime, also the hime cut.

But yeah, it's pretty much a running joke on /a/ to post a picture that's ambiguously Yamada or Yurin and say 'Best girl of the season.'

It's fine, it's just ... not everyone keeps up with everything at all times, especially those things that run along genres they're not interested in. As HellCat pointed out, he's never even heard of the show before, and while I know of it by name I couldn't be asked to recognize a single character or element from it. I imagine you'll find the same thing applies to a lot of folks. icon-waspy.gif

Not everyone hangs around /a/ or whichever to know this, either. Some, myself included, actively avoid it. icon-waspy.gif

AGE is doing quite well in ratings and home media pre-orders. Apparently AGE's lowest rating so far was still higher then any for Geass R2.

However, there's a snag- apparently, it isn't kids watching.

Not sure how they compile this stuff but apparently it's older fans watching and kids are barely interested. One anecdotal remark I've heard claims more women over 50 are watching then 12 year old boys. There are also reports shops are discounting the toys/kits because they simply aren't moving.

The following are alleged figures for the problem
Gundam shows (average viewership by kids under 12) -
Gundam Seed - 6.36%
SD Gundam Force - 4.50%
Gundam Seed Destiny - 4.14%
Gundam 00 - 2.33%
Gundam 00 Second Season - 2.06%
SD Gundam Sangokudan - 5.26%
Gundam AGE - 1.30%

In more direct news, we've started getting word on the phase 2 stuff including AGE-2 Normal. So, was that leak a while back right or complete nonsense?
HIGHLIGHT to view:

Turns out it was in fact legit. There's been some work done but this is basically what we saw a while back, basically crossing AGE-1 mildly with 00 Raiser and Gundam Sefer Rasiel.

We also have a look at a new unit called the Adele, which is basically a Genoace with improvements take from the AGE-1 such as the shield.
