@  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.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (05 April 2020 - 03:34 PM)

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!

@  PlutoniumBoss : (30 March 2020 - 05:26 PM)

On the other hand, this is Armada we're talking about. It could have actually been Metroplex.

Shame he wasn't around more. He seemed like such a jolly, happy soul.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (27 March 2020 - 02:16 PM)

No, he was definitely Metroplex. You could tell because he was in Metroplex's distinctive red and green coloration.

@  Paladin : (27 March 2020 - 02:11 PM)

that was Leader-1. or possibly Jolt. maybe Grindor...

@  PlutoniumBoss : (27 March 2020 - 01:57 PM)

Metroplex was in Armada, in a flashback. He was the same size as everybody else. I thought that was the joke.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (27 March 2020 - 12:39 PM)

@Rodimus Supreme: Gah! You are right! How'd I get that mixed up? x.x;

Probably CycloneJoker Gold Xtreme (or whatever order that's supposed to be in) given its use in last year's Movie Wars. Which would follow anyway since Super TaToBa seems like it has more of a stance as the true super form for OOO rather than PuToTyra. In that case it might be more unfortunate if Magnet States doesn't debut in Movie Wars if it's going to be the TaJaDoru/FangJoker of Fourze.

Wow, tons of awesome news. Meteor looks cool, and now we can actually see his head he doesn't look anything like Ankh. Rocket State is about what I'd expect from a Rocket-based form, and it's nice to see that, at least to the mid-series point, Fourze isn't getting a berserk dino Switch. And as much as I think the Foodroids are stupid, I can't help but love the ice cream cone one just for how odd it is.

I know it won't happen, but the good development on the Kamen Rider Club in Fourze is making me wish that there could be a third Rider belt (since it seems likely Meteor is a new guy) that could just be passed around as the plot demands.

Kinda wish he had more color from the waist down, but the fact that his entire suit is a giant constellation makes up for it.

It seems pretty safe to say he's not Shun, because if he was he'd be doing the salute pose. I remember seeing somewhere (probably in the old thread) a name and stock photo of an actor playing a "mysterious high school kid" or something like that in the new Movie War, which sounds very like Terui's appearance at the end of Movie War 2010.

I just hope Shun keeps using the Power Dizer. Seems silly to not use it not that they have a reliable pilot for it.

See, I'd already been hoping for that possibility on some level. Watching Kiva, "Team IXA" filling out over the course of the series was one of my favorite elements. It'd be cool to get something like that happening again since it has been a little while since the concept was last put to practice at all.

Which will also guarantee that any sub-Figuarts toy of it will likely look horribly, boringly plain since the starfield deco is probably cost-prohibitive except for Figuarts. I'd bet it'll be a really short wait for Meteor to get an upgrade that adds some more colors in somehow.

I kind of want them to remember that the Powerdizer is also a launch platform and that the Machine Full-Speeder can launch in to low orbit. Sometime before Meteor debuts, mind you, since I'm sure that gimmick will get used at least once around then.

They could've done so much better with Super TaToBa's design.

They threw away one of the strongest points of the OOOs design (the main black body) and give us a multicolored wreck. I love the Taka Brave head on TaJaDoru but without the green eyes here it just looks messy and feels like they did just rip it off that other suit.

They should've just 'Brave-ified' the Tora and Batta parts; bigger, more ornate claws and gauntlets for the arms and some greaves for some added weight to the legs. Put a cape on it and say's it's the true form of King OOOs!

I do like Meteor though. His eyes look like Super-1's, I wonder if that's intentional?

RaToraTa and GataKiriBa should probably have had amped up parts anyway to begin with, and then they could have just combined all those aspects. I think trying to introduce that now would just seem weird. Mind you, I am not at all okay with how that suit looks either. I think yellow bodysuits for Riders needs to be put on a no-fly list. It only barely worked for Wing Den-O, and just because it fit that Sieg was ridiculous above all.

I LOVE Super TaToBa!

"Disabled people donít have special needs. We have very reasonable human needs. Our needs include freedom from abuse, violence, and mistreatment, the right to autonomy and self-direction, the right to represent ourselves, equal opportunity for education and employment, the right to accommodation, and societal inclusion and acceptance.

The need for accommodation isnít a ďspecial needĒ. Itís a basic human right. Itís a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."
