    Not really... there's a few YouTube thingys I'm subscribed to, but I don't regularly check them. Mostly I get in a mood and watch all of their content. Then I'll come back to them a while later and watch more. The ines I look at most frequently are (in no particular order) Dr Faust's Painting clinic Overly sarcastic Productions JLantis Toys Khan Academy Matthew Colevile (running the game guy) The other channels are all music. Enya! FTW!!

    An appeal for civilty

    This place is like a cool osasis in a baking desert of toxic internet heat. It's "real" in a way that drowning oneself in kitten pictures is not. I dont think we need to bend over backwards to avoid offending each other, just be mindful of the subjects we bring up, and their appropriateness in the forum. Otherwise the desert will destroy our pleasant little oasis.

    Yes, here in 'merica we like our burgers as big as possible! It's actually a challenge to eat the biggest one you can. (The biggest I've seen in person is an 8 inch burger, but I think there's bigger.) It's mouth will need to hinge open so we can throw sacrifices into it! I've noticed this for about a week. YouTube videos show up as a picture with the play button, no link, no playing.

    Welp, I've pledged. Did the duo pledge, with $9 extra for the three gripli. Gonna get the owl mage and the hireling. He's holding a turkey for crying out loud!
  6. June was an adventurer, so July will be a monster. But August will be an adventurer, so let's hope for a lady adventurer then!

    One of my regular guests gave me Russian candies I think one of them has hazelnut cream, and one is covered in coconut. I have no idea about the others. Should be fun to eat them.

    What's on TV?

    I've found that I can only watch a couple of episodes of a series of unfortunate events at a time. About the middle of the second episode my arm starts to ache from restraining my myself from slapping the adults. Specifically Poe. I mean, I know that's the whole dead, but good lord do I just want to slap a idiot!

    Well, yesterday I hurt my shoulder. We had to get the heavy kitty litter because the lightweight was out of stock. I forgot how flipping heavy the stuff was. My shoulder twanged while I was pouring it into the box (because I was holding it awkwardly). I mean, it's made plenty of pops and cracks... but a twang!? Oy vey! Look in here for a Disney rant:

    Tom, a toe. Drives Hubby mad when I say it that way Well, if I ever had a desk that was mine and couldn't be stolen from, I'd almost certainly have my bobble head ewok pop and my bobble head baby groot pop. Tapping their heads helps me consider things. And their adorable faces calm me down.

    Depends on my mood, but I always say potato. Pronunciation doesn't vex me very much, but it does drive Hubby up the wall when people say things wrong. As he most frequent conversation partner, and someone who learned most of the words I know from books, I get frequent corrections. I think he is most annoyed by my mispronunciation of Greek words, like "kraken" and "hades". I can never remember the correct way to say them and I always seem to pick the wrong one.

    Hubby had an interview today. He took me, because. It was the weirdest interview I've ever attended. It was mostly the owner of this bar (who seems like a good guy, just over worked) kvetching about how he can't hire people who know how to cook eggs. He had one guy make scrambled eggs by making an over hard egg and chopping it up! I'm reasonably sure they had decided to hire Hubby before we even got there. Hubby is gonna go back on Saturday for a performance interview to prove he knows how to cook eggs. I'm gonna come to that as well. Free breakfast

    @Aryanun good to hear from you again! :hugs: hang in there. Personally, I don't look at the news very much. (It helps that google changed their news page and totally made it unusable for me.) But that's probably not the wisest tactic to take

    For a warm bath? That'll be in short supply during the apocalypse! An inexpensive, perpetual energy source. Like, the sun would be great, if it didn't vary greatly depending on your locale. And wind would be good, if it wasn't unreliable. So, that thingy iron man has in his chest.

    Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    Same. There weren't enough figures in the bones 3 core that I liked, to justify the expense, but this time there certainly are!
  17. Everything is much more drab and gloomy than expected/ remembered/ experienced. It's all part of aesthetic.
  18. I got new tabs for my car on Saturday, so that the apartment manager won't tow my car

    For long term survival, farmers, gatherers, folks who can make all sorts of stuff from scratch. Chemists.

    Ugh, I know right! I hate what they did to the lethal weapon tv show. It started out good, building a good bond between Riggs and murtah, but they killed it! Elf them! :shakes fist at Hollywood:
  21. Well, Pom Poko was really good. It made me feel like garbage for being a human, but it was good. Those raccoons were hella cute

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    See, I don't agree. I feel like they've been hit or miss lately (sometimes in the same film), but not everything has been garbage. The live action Malificent was very bleh for me, though it had some good points. The live action Cinderella was great, but then it's hard not to improve when you turn the movie from being about the mice, back to being about the girl. Frozen and Moana both had good stories, but for the most part their music sucked. Big Hero 6 was straight up brilliant. Wreck It Ralph was fantastic too. I honestly don't remember much about the "live action" Jungle book, so I'm gonna assume that it was neither good nor bad. Beauty and the Beast was okay for me; I enjoyed the fleshing out they did of the story, but in the end I loved the original too much for the new one to supplant it. My problem with Dumbo is that it seems like they're taking it from being about how the animals cope with the misery inflicted in them by humans, to how humans make the animals lives better. In the original, humans were like a force of nature; they were there, they were visible, they inflicted upon the animals, but in the end, it was up to the animals to overcome their challenges with minimal help from humans.

    I haven't painted any of my large minis. For one thing, I'm moving in less than a year, so I don't fancy just packing them away after they've been put together and painted. And when I do get them together and painted, I'd like to have one (or more) of those nice IKEA glass shelves to put them in. I do have a wide wall shelf that they could fit in now. But... above listed issues.

    There's no mouse in dumbo. How can there not be a mouse?!? And they peopled it!

    Mufassa! Just say his name, Mufassa! I'd probably be the insane ruler that the people love (social programs, yo), but the aristocracy hates. Because I'd be all "off with their heads" on those political elf holes!
