Re: COVID-19 Pandemic

I can accept the two-week lockdown as a viable "oh SHIT we FUCKED UP" response, after realizing they'd screwed up the testing and the approach to testing and that the WHO had been regurgitating China's political propaganda in lieu of medical facts; and if they waited to see how fast corpses piled u...

Not to mention Trump effectively handing over control of the country for several months to a guy whose previous claim to fame was a declaration that people who are HIV-positive should absolutely go right ahead and continue having unprotected sex with strangers, as long as their viral count falls bel...

Re: COVID-19 Pandemic

Sooo, it's been a few months. Was beginning to think the site had been shut down. I'm compelled to ask: how's everyone doing? Speaking only for myself, I lost a month of work in April and at least one friendship, the latter of which still baffles me, but have otherwise been mostly unaffected by thi...

Re: We're back, with a new look.

I honestly thought the site was deleted or something, it was down for so long. Yeah, that's on me. There was a needed software update that we started working on, but then I got distracted with various things (like the world going to hell) and didn't get around to finishing the update for...well, qu...

We're back, with a new look.

So you may or may not have noticed, but the forum was down for a couple months. But now it's back, and with a fairly dramatic new look, too.

I'm curious to hear what everyone thinks about that. :geek:

Re: COVID-19 Pandemic

Right now it seems like the paranoia over this thing is far worse than the disease itself, at least from our perspective over here, anyway. At the present time, there is ONE confirmed case in the state in which I live, and not even in the same city...yet people have gone insane stockpiling toilet pa...

Castlevania anime: a missed opportunity

So I recently watched the first two seasons of the recent Castlevania anime, and I have to say I was pretty disappointed with it. I was expecting it to more or less follow the plot of Dracula's Curse , with Trevor setting out on his epic journey to the castle, meeting and teaming up with his new all...

Re: Joker

Well, I just finished watching Joker, finally, and damn. Have to say I'm pretty much in complete agreement with the Critical Drinker's review of it . (Spoiler warning; he describes the movie's overall plot in detail.) viQXE1QMfVg It's a truly harrowing exploration of mental illness and insanity. You...

Merry Christmas!

Well, it's that time of year again. And while none of you will be surprised to learn that I spent the past hour or two hunting for some very specific topical images, apparently Goji doesn't do Christmas so here we are.

Re: Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker

I am so sorry you had to watch that movie, Corey. I appreciate the sentiment, but it's not necessary. I went with my brother and his family, and a good time was had by all, regardless of the movie's ultimate quality. As a bonus, I got to evaluate it firsthand, as opposed to relying on the informati...

Re: Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker

Well, I went to see the movie tonight, so here's my summarized and spoiler-free opinion of it. I should also note that this could be considered my "first impression", and may be subject to change after I've had time for deeper reflection and/or subsequent viewings. It was actually better than I was ...

Re: Whakaari Eruption

The official toll is currently 15, but this could still climb up higher because of the extent of the survivor's burns. I won't horrify you with the gory details. Yeah, knowing that they'd ordered nearly 1,300 square feet of skin as of three days ago paints a sufficient picture all on its own. Not t...

Re: Whakaari Eruption

Jesus. I'd heard that was bad, but it sounds worse than I'd thought. I'm reminded somewhat of the 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens (which I vaguely remember, having been three when it happened), but at least in this case the scope of the destruction will be relatively limited, being contained to an...
