You don't even hear a hint of an accent, and she only very rarely chooses some odd wording where she probably wasn't familiar with the more appropriate alternative due to its relative obscurity.

@  Nevermore : (20 September 2019 - 03:41 AM)

Just watched what's possibly the most relaxed interview ever of a German Youtuber interviewing Zazie while walking around Berlin. Turns out she was born in Berlin and spent quite some time in Germany.

@  Nevermore : (20 September 2019 - 03:39 AM)

Actors and actresses I had no idea speak fluent German, part 4.231: Zazie Beetz from Deadpool 2.

@  Benbot : (18 September 2019 - 02:14 PM)

It's too bad it's like this because some of what they're doing with tiny cars is pretty cool, but I'm not willing to sign up for that f-ing hassle.

@  Benbot : (18 September 2019 - 02:13 PM)

At this point I'm trying to decide how much of a markup I'm willing to pay some scalper scum or if I should just say to hell with it.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (18 September 2019 - 02:11 PM)

That is pretty much the constant story with Hot Wheels. Anything you might actually want has most likely been picked clean and marked up.

@  Benbot : (18 September 2019 - 02:02 PM)

I've been watching some Youtube Hot Wheels videos out of boredom and discovered there exists a new car that just came out maybe a month ago that looks just like one I had when I was little, and I've been looking around hoping to get it. Slim picking everywhere, but online there are a slew of sellers asking for 3 and 4x the retail price, plus a hefty shipping markup.

@  Benbot : (18 September 2019 - 01:59 PM)

Oh, that explains the problem I've encountered with finding one little car

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 September 2019 - 01:31 PM)

Oh boy. I work at Target, and literally every single morning, there are two or three guys outside who make a beeline straight to the Hot Wheels.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 September 2019 - 09:55 PM)

I've never read the source material and don't know much about it, but I enjoyed the first film quite a bit, and found the second alright

@  Sabrblade : (17 September 2019 - 09:49 PM)

The first movie was definitely not for me. I flat out hated it. Didn't even bother with the sequel.

@  Maruten : (17 September 2019 - 05:02 PM)

I liked the first movie a lot and enjoyed the original volume of the book, and the way they were developed in parallel was really interesting. It all got super extra unpleasant as soon as they went back though. I don't remember really whether the initial sequels are "good" or not, but either way both the second movie and the second run of the book quickly demonstrated that the property sure wasn't for me.

@  Paladin : (17 September 2019 - 04:45 PM)

i have a real hard time offering praise of anything connected to an utter shitstain like Mark Millar.

@  Rycochet : (17 September 2019 - 01:23 PM)

Kick Ass 2 was okay for what it was, a sequel to a film that was okay, just okay. It had a good performance from Nic Cage while the sequel had Jim Carrey who decided he didn't want to promote it after one of america's regularly scheduled massacres.

@  Benbot : (17 September 2019 - 12:20 PM)

Was Kick Ass 2 really that bad? I never got around to seeing it, but after watching the first movie again the other day, I'm thinking about it.

If you owe, you're expected to actually pay it at the time you file, before they even process your return

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 September 2019 - 11:10 PM)

If you file electronically, I find you usually get your refund within a couple weeks

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 06:22 PM)

Well, lucky it took less than two months for me. For a little over 200 Euros.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 September 2019 - 06:11 PM)

Pretty much, yeah. Canada revenue will be all up your ass if you earn less than 200K and owe tax, but your refund is basically "duke nukem forever".

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 05:34 PM)

Whereas if you overpaid and they have to refund you, they will take their sweet time to let you know.

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 05:34 PM)

Like, here in Germany, if the tax authority responds to your tax report quickly, you can rest assured they want more money.

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 05:33 PM)

Do tax authorities in other countries base their time to respond to filed tax reports on whether they owe or are owed as well?

@  wonko the sane? : (10 September 2019 - 11:13 AM)

Check what the requirements are for your cad program, and try to beat them by about 20%, and understand that software requirements have been stable for a few years: not really keeping up with the advancements in hardware. Unless you're doing something SPECIFIC which requires ludicrous amounts of power, just give your self a cushion on hardware and don't bother going whole hog.

@  Benbot : (10 September 2019 - 10:16 AM)

What I'm currently using is an i5 2018 Surface Laptop. My current desktop is all but dead. I think in the end affordability will win out over specs. I need to use CAD programs, but I'm a student, not a professional.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 September 2019 - 10:06 AM)

Okay. Whats the specs on the I7 and what are you currently using?

@  Benbot : (10 September 2019 - 09:23 AM)

I'm pretty bummed those aren't 4-inch. I would have loved to have DH and DH2 in the same scale.

-ZacWilliam, heh, actually if they'd only reversed who was at each size that might have worked for scale too.

I was hoping for a classic Death's Head in the 6-inch line so I could stand him with the other TFs on my shelf. I've got the 4-inch one there now, and it's okay, but I want one closer to them in scale.

 

Love that Warlock though. Looking forward to putting him with the other Guardians on my cosmic shelf.

There's a leaked listing of the Spider-Man Homecoming wave somewhere out there.  Two unrevealed movie tie-in figures, Tombstone, Cosmic Spidey, Carrion (listed as "Dead Meat"), and a Beetle (but WHICH ONE???  Probably one of Jenkins' armours.)

 

Also, I'd like to transfer my disgust in the Titans Return thread for the Death's Head 2 here as well.  Ahem.  GODDAMMIT HASBRO!!!

Yeah, he's not terrible on the shelf (he's still bigger than the little Human Alliance figures I use as normal humans on the shelf), but he's just not as big as I'd like him to be compared to the TFs.

That finally sounds like a Spider-man wave I have very little interest in. Aside from maybe the cosmic Spidey.

No clue when I'm going to be able to afford the last few waves, but at least that'll be a break.

That rumored Homecoming wave sounds great. I'm all about Carrion, Tombstone, and a new Moon Knight. And assuming one of the two movie characters if the film's villain, I imagine I'll want him as well.

Death's Head 4" just happened to run into The Doctor a second time. And got compressed again.

 

He doesn't look too bad, as I said. The perspective here is a bit off given that he's standing in the front, but he's just a bit shorter than Arcee when standing directly beside her. It's workable, especially with the humans so small.

 

Crappy picture follows...

My local Walmarts have begun stocking the Space Venom wave.  I can't remember the last time I actually completed a ML Build-a-Figure, but alas, Space Venom is mine.

 

Not sure if I'm going to keep Electro and Hobgoblin, though.  I don't really collect Spider-Man's rogues anymore.  Hobgoblin is a really nice, figure, though.

I got an email notifying me that my Marvel Unlimited Plus subscription is going to be renewed next month, so I decided to check if the 2016/2017 figure has been revealed yet.

 

Turns out it's Captain Marvel with less color.

 

A lot less exciting than Rescue.

So there's a good chance I'm going to cancel the subscription. I haven't done nearly as much reading as I wanted to this year. Haven't even been in enough of a comics-reading to mood to read the current stuff I'm buying.

 

Also I had deleted the app a couple months ago for some temporary space, but I can't redownload it because it's apparently now incompatible with my tablet.
