@  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?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 04:48 PM)

Snapdragon for Earthrise.

@  TM2-Megatron : (04 December 2019 - 10:22 PM)

Still not the weirdest thing a Nic Cage character has done in a film

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 04:00 PM)

Couldn't be worse than him pissing fire as Ghost Rider.

@  Rycochet : (04 December 2019 - 03:38 PM)

The Tim Burton Superman Movie is the DC movie we deserve. It would have Nic Cage in a technosuit punching polarbears.

@  Paladin : (04 December 2019 - 02:59 PM)

Wonder Woman was great. Shazam was amazing. Aquaman... exists.

@  RichardT1977 : (04 December 2019 - 01:54 PM)

TBF, Aquaman and Shazam! were pretty good.

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 01:00 PM)

Not a difficult feat.

@  Benbot : (04 December 2019 - 11:50 AM)

You just put more effort into telling a compelling story than all of WB's execs.

@  Cybersnark : (04 December 2019 - 11:41 AM)

Cue the flashback to Jonathan, reassuring a terrified child: "What you are is never as important as who you are." Cue Superman's response to Brainiac: "I already know who I am."*John Williams fanfare plays*

@  Cybersnark : (04 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

I don't think we even really need to see Krypton. I'd start with Clark growing up in Kansas, thinking he's normal, and follow him through the development of his powers. There've been enough alternate takes on Krypton that it could actually work as a mystery; is this the pre-Crisis utopia, the sterile science world, or the relic of a fallen empire? Brainiac was there, and he tempts Clark with the knowledge of what he really is.

@  Otaku : (04 December 2019 - 11:12 AM)

First, a Krypton film, ending with baby Kal-El being found on Earth.  Then Supe's early career film, establishing his values... and if Jonothan Kent needs to die, it happens because of something like a heart attack while Clark is savnig folks on the other side of the world.  After we know Clark minimizes property damage and never kills, have Zod & Company show up and force him to make tough choices.

@  Otaku : (04 December 2019 - 11:07 AM)

Man of Steel seems like someone came up with a Superman trilogy and then the execs said "We've got to catch up to Marvel, make it one film!".  I don't mean that based on the film's actual pacing, but because various story beats make more sense to me if they weren't all squished together.

@  Cybersnark : (03 December 2019 - 07:44 PM)

I've been wanting to write a Superman movie trilogy for years; "Man of Steel" (featuring a Terminator-like Brainiac) was going to be first, with "Last Son of Krypton" (featuring the Eradicator) as the sequel and "Man of Tomorrow" (in which Luthor makes his face-heel turn) as the conclusion. Thanks to Snyder I have to re-arrange my titles.

@  Nevermore : (03 December 2019 - 06:15 PM)

I still wish "Man of Steel" had instead been an adaptation of both the John Byrne miniseries of the same name and the Jeph Loeb/Tim Sale miniseries "Superman For All Seasons".

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (03 December 2019 - 04:42 PM)

A take I just read: Man of Steel is shot with such a lack of lighting that it is easier to discern what is going on in a porn film.

@  Maximus Ambus : (03 December 2019 - 12:20 PM)

Making Soylant is harder then it looks, it's not like the movies, you have to keep whacking and hacking at the ingredient, it'll scream and fight, maybe bite but eventually it will go down.

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

varies from person to person.

@  Benbot : (03 December 2019 - 11:34 AM)

It's an acquired taste

@  CORVUS : (03 December 2019 - 11:17 AM)

Soylent? Its pretty awful.

@  unluckiness : (03 December 2019 - 02:49 AM)

Depends on your denomination of Christianity

@  Patch : (02 December 2019 - 05:52 PM)

@Benbot Do they have a soy-free version? Like maybe just "Lent?"

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 December 2019 - 02:03 PM)

Just occurred to me 'Autobot' Megatron happened in Target 2006.

@  Benbot : (02 December 2019 - 11:48 AM)

have you tried Soylent? It's pretty good! https://soylent.com/

@  Paladin : (02 December 2019 - 10:01 AM)

i prefer free-range human usually. pain in the ass to hunt though...

@  TheMightyMol... : (02 December 2019 - 09:42 AM)

If your human is all bones, you may have purchased a skeleton by accident. Contact your grocer to inquire about exhange policies.

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 December 2019 - 09:31 AM)

Vegans are categorised as human therefore just fall under Soylant, they are usually all bones.

@  wonko the sane? : (01 December 2019 - 04:47 PM)

Cause... that latter one is technically all burgers anyway.

@  wonko the sane? : (01 December 2019 - 04:46 PM)

So... a burger made without meat, or a burger made with the meat taken from a vegan?

@  Maximus Ambus : (01 December 2019 - 04:22 PM)

I had a vegan burger last week, this week I'll give a vegan steak a shot.

@  wonko the sane? : (30 November 2019 - 12:37 PM)

a proper paradox would have broken the board. Nice try though.

@  Maximus Ambus : (30 November 2019 - 01:47 AM)

This shout is empty.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (30 November 2019 - 12:01 AM)

I've got the admit. tubi tv is great. It's got a lot of stuff.. Including Super Sentai.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 November 2019 - 10:35 PM)

There is frankly no better place to (legally) find schlock on the internet for free than Tubi TV

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 November 2019 - 10:33 PM)

It's got all the graphic violence and gratuitous nudity a late 80s OVA should have.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 November 2019 - 10:32 PM)

Available for free with ads on Tubi TV.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 November 2019 - 10:32 PM)

It's "Goku: Midnight Eye". Originally produced in the late 80s, it apparently wasn't dubbed until the late 90s given Steve Blum was the lead.

@  wonko the sane? : (29 November 2019 - 06:38 PM)

The description makes it sound like some high grade, mid 80's shlock. Which, frankly, is my groove.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 November 2019 - 12:37 PM)

Was wondering how long it would take someone to ask.

@  wonko the sane? : (29 November 2019 - 09:58 AM)

okay, it's been like two days so far: what anime is this, cause I'm dying to know.

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 November 2019 - 09:23 PM)

You know you're in for a good time when an old anime starts with a crime lord uses roller skates in his cybernetic legs to skate down the side of the building, launches to a dock and into a getaway boat.

SO played the Core 2020 prerelease today. Did about as horrible as ever playing but my pulls were pretty good.

 

Rares were

 

Leyline of Abundance

Leyline of the Void

Mystic Forge

Agent of Trechery

Masterful Replication

Bishop of Wings (Promo)

Temple of Malady (foil)

and Chandra, Awakened Inferno!

 

I was pumped getting the Mythic Chandra and played a Green Red deck trying to focus on Elementals but my cards just weren't all there. But the oddest thing happened at the tournament. It was just 8 of us and 4 of us Pulled Chandra, Awakened Inferno! Not a mix of the 3 different rarity Chandras, Just the Mythic one. How messed up is that?

That sucks Kal. Being a Core Set I was actually cool with missing this one but my days off got me through the weekend as well as spending time with my Nieces. That said the weekend after the 4th was not the best time to set it off.

is there a system that an AI can deck test decks in a series of mock battles for you and give you a win/loss graph?

So I've had a big kick for Dinosaur Tribal since Ixalan and had a Commander deck commanded by either Gishath, Sun's Avatar, or the Hascon Grimlock card depending on the group wanting me to play him or not. Gishath is a bit slow to get out and not the best synergy in the late game. But the new Commander precons have me jazzed at the possibilities with Atla Palani, Nest Tender. Basic stats are't too impressive being a 2/3 Human Shaman for 1RGW but her abilities...

 

For 2 mana and tapping her she puts out a 0/1 egg token with defender. Again not super impressive but while shes on the battlefield any egg that dies let's you reveal the top cards of your deck until you hit a creature and put it onto the battlefield and put any other cards revealed on the bottom of your deck in any order. So a nice way to cheat out the elder dinos like Gishath, or a Gigantosaurus by chump blocking.

 

But add in M20's Marauding Raptor and the eggs die as they come out! it's problematic for smaller dinos and every creature that comes out will come out weakened, but great for enrage triggers.Need to add in some defense boosting enchantments maybe.That way the small fry may see play. Also might be fun to add in a Dragons Egg or other Egg creature cards within the WGR color wheelhouse because they would also trigger Alta's ability. I'll probably still get creamed by the others at the store but I love the idea of just putting out Zetalpa for 2 mana possibly.

So Wizards continues their year of Cash Grabs with something both ingenious and completely stupid. Secret Lair sets.

Pretty much kind of sets similar to the Signature Spellbook series or such with 5 alternate art reprint cards with a couple of alternate art counters thrown in too each set will retail between 30 to 40 dollars. First big no thank you there.

But it gets worse they start going on sale only one day at a time only through Wizards own webstore. Supposedly unlimited quantities for that day, but again one day only. They have a bundle of all seven sets available for $200 as Well

Secret Lair Bundle (all seven drops) - 12/2, 9am PT, $199.99
Bitterblossom Dreams - 12/3, 9am PT
Eldraine Wonderland - 12/4, 9am PT
Restless in Peace - 12/5, 9am PT
Seeing Visions - 12/6, 9am PT
<explosion sounds> - 12/7, 9am PT
Kaleidoscope Killers - 12/8, 9am PT
OMG KITTIES! - 12/9, 9am PT, $39.99


And its that last one that kills me. They used OMG KITTIES! as their example. And its filled with adorable art work versions of Regal Caracal, Miri, Arahbo, and cute tokens and ahhhhhhhh.

I hate Wizards for playing on my love of adorable kitties.

Edit: and it gets worse! Bitterblossom Dreams is just Bitterblossom with 4 fairy tokens, Eldraine Wonderland is just one of each Snowland with Snow Eldraine Art, and Seeing Visions is 4 copies of Serum Vision each with unique art. That is some straight up greedy bs.

At least the others arent as bad. Kaleidoscopic Killers is a 3 card set containing Sliver Overlord, the Ur Dragon and Reaper King. All three are decent Commanders. Explosion Sounds is a collection of five Goblin cards but no legendary characters. Restless in Peace is a toss up. Its just Bloodghast, Life from the Loam and Golgari Thug. At 10 per card or more though it seems too steep. The only two I feel are a decent buy are the Kaleidoscopic Killers and Kitties!
There are times Sliver Overlord alone costs more than what this set costs. And well just Kitties! Could of stuck an Ajani in though.

Just got sucked back in again.... Built a 'Rat' command deck, Reworking existing commanders... with only my Glissa infect deck being ready.

Merfolk and Wizards never being finished in the first place... Markov finished but not shuffled... Angel/Dragon/Demon stomp and Gorgon 7's under overhaul.

And in the process... I get sucked into making 2 more decks X(

Was just going to stick to throne, but went for a pack of 2020.  Pulled a Legendary Sphinx that makes folks lose the game.

So people who bought the full set of Secret Lairs today in the Seattle area got personal WOTC delivery service within hours. Seems each Lair has another previously unannounced bonus. A physical foil copy of a Stained Glass Planeswalker card from the War of the Spark set previously only digital on Arena. Most of the sets seem randomized on what one you get but OMG Kitties! seems locked with Ajani, and the Seeing Visions set with Ashiok.
