#1096051 January 14th 2019

Posted by Pasidon on 15 January 2019 - 08:52 AM in Daily News

I'm more than certain someone in our 3rd Age group knows the answer to this.

I'm surprised you haven't posted this one yet.  Dark All Day is S.O.L.I.D.

 




#1095876 APT files in 2018 games // New development project!

Posted by Pasidon on 09 January 2019 - 09:14 PM in Technology Talk

Good.  It's all free.  You can pay for extra bandwidth, but you probably won't need it.  You can read this stuff if you want more details.

 

Just give me a PM with what you want your forum to be named, and all your subforums, then I can give you the disclaimers and so on.  People usually have to fill out some sort of form, but... well, I can't be bothered with sorting those.  




#1095849 APT files in 2018 games // New development project!

Posted by Pasidon on 08 January 2019 - 06:57 PM in Technology Talk

You've come to the right place.  We love that coding nonsense around here.  I think we have a few American football fans that play Madden, but if you're interested in being hosted... let me know.  We can get you a place in the forums to put all your showcases and development details.

Well, we DO delete accounts when it comes to someone making more than one.  I'll just delete that one (TWPOWA).

I don't know how to pronounce that at all, but that's you now.  Enjoy this new life.




#1095777 Trump has made history! (now vs the world)

Posted by Pasidon on 06 January 2019 - 08:03 PM in Current Events, Politics, Philosophy

No dangers to security?  Borrring.

 

Anyway.  Yes, I do follow Trump on Facebook.  Yes, I do find it endlessly entertaining.  You get jewels like this from time to time:

 

49608112_10161996082620725_3943523883243

 

Yes, Trump actually posted that on his page.  Game of Thrones font and all, next to a very unflattering filtered picture of himself.  Then again, if you're an overweight 80 year old man who sits under sunlamps more than the actual sun, it's difficult to look flattering at all.




#1095712 Trump has made history! (now vs the world)

Posted by Pasidon on 05 January 2019 - 12:20 AM in Current Events, Politics, Philosophy

The government has been shutdown for 2 weeks?  I haven't even noticed.  Is that a good thing or not?

I know some of these songs aren't from 2018, but these are my some of my favorites from the songs I've seen this year in this topic:

 

- Thoughts & Prayers by Grandson

- Somebody's Watching Me by Darling

- Demons by Sleigh Bells

- Terrestrial by Moderns

 

And just as a New Year treat, for the heck of it, here's my favorite song of all time.  Let's see if 2019 can beat Dead End Justice:

Would dark brown make much of a difference?  It's already very... well... brown.




#1095423 Worst 5 Shows of 2018

Posted by Pasidon on 29 December 2018 - 11:35 PM in Media Discussion

I was considering watching the new season of House of Cards just to see how bad it is.  So, they kick the rapist off, and just have his wife turn into the president?  I actually am very interested to see how they write their way out of that hole.  Well... I'm assuming they don't get very far out of that hole at all, actually.




#1095391 Worst 5 Shows of 2018

Posted by Pasidon on 29 December 2018 - 09:31 AM in Media Discussion

I think I told you before, but if Hill House's first 3-4 episodes were the events at the house, then their adult lives and their lingering traumas for the rest of the season, I wouldn't have minded it.  But that obviously wasn't the case.

 

And Gaga, I was going to put Walking Dead on the list AGAIN... but I didn't watch a single episode this season.  And I heard they killed Rick off, and if you recall my list from 2017... that was literally my one suggestion.  And they did it.  So, they get a free pass this year.




#1095383 Worst 5 Shows of 2018

Posted by Pasidon on 29 December 2018 - 05:54 AM in Media Discussion

It's a steep competition, especially when I don't even want to watch half of them.  How can there possibly even by a top 5 worst shows when I hate them all almost equally?  Here's an almost randomly ordered list to settle your questions.

 

#5 The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina

 

Chilling_Adventures_of_Sabrina_logo.jpg

 

Sabrina the Teenage Witch is a show about Sabrina who is a teenage witch.  The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is hardly chilling, or is there really any any adventure happening.  Even though this show is supposed to be a giant reference to the 1990's show, it is anything but.  Instead of goofy aunts and a witty talking cat, you have uncomfortably realistic satanic values and a gay immortal who lives in the attic for masturbation gags.  

 

#4  American Horror Story: Apocalypse 

 

ahs-langdon-1542226594-1-1542239449.png?

 

"Hey, wait a minute... the first 2 episodes of this season are good.  What's the deal, bird brain?"  The deal is a sticky, smelly stain on this wonderful carpet we have.  How do you ruin a great plot about the end of the world and the wacky cast of survivors involved?  You kill most of them all off before you can say "is Jessica Lang back yet" and then just turn the whole thing into a sequel to the worst season of the show.  That's right.  Did you like Coven?  Me neither.  But it's back and so are all the characters that died.  Yes, if you're counting, some of these people have already died THREE TIMES before this season even started.  Fourth time's the charm.

 

#3  Supernatural

 

supernatural-season-13-confirmed.jpg?ito

 

It's been going since 2005.  Have they exhausted every possible sci-fi trope yet?  No.  Does it feel like it?  Yes.  Just cut the umbilical cord and throw that 13 year old baby into the trash already.

 

#2  Roseanne

 

180330091613-roseanne-reboot-exlarge-169

 

Speaking of bringing things back from the dead that should stay there.  That's right.  The cast is back and better than ever.  And by better, I do mean old and really awkward.  Laugh-tracks and large women still do well in television, but not in this case.  And the show gets canceled because Roseanne trash-talks a politician?  Yea, sure.  That's why it's gone.

 

#1  the Haunting of Hill House

 

the-haunting-of-hill-house-wide.jpg

 

The critically acclaimed Netflix spook fest, but I think the critics got their "nots" and "goods" mixed around.  It has a few good moments, but ultimately, it is a heaping mess of brooding adults and very UNchronological storytelling.  A cast of very similar looking white people give us glimpses into their traumatic childhood while they're just trying to live their perfectly ordinary low-middle-high class American lives.  Do you like flashbacks?  How about hallucination sequences? How about some more flachbacks?  How about entire episodes that are flashbacks... but is it really a flashback or is the rest of the show a flash-forward?   I think someone got all the slides mixed up.  The entire show is based around 3-4 good ideas, but the rest is just frosting.  Some people like frosting... but you're not supposed to make 90% of the stinken cake out of it.  Mmm... thanks, mommy.  These minimal ghost sequences are so tasty in my mouth.  Rewatching the same 10 scenes from different perspectives makes my tum-tum sooo happy.  See you back on the list next season, House Hill.




#1095318 Top 5 Shows of 2018

Posted by Pasidon on 27 December 2018 - 08:34 PM in Media Discussion

I was going to do a Marvel joke for Mrs. Maisel, then scratched it, but forgot to remove the butt of the joke.  You understand.

 

But America's Got Talent?  Get rid of Heidi Klum and we'll talk.  And Big Bang Theory is just the same skit dragged across the mud a hundred times.  I saw 2 of the new episodes this year, and I was actually considering putting it on the top 5 worst show list.  Absolutely terrible pedestrian comedy.  But luckily, there were 5 far worse shows this year.  I'll get to those later.




#1095277 Top 5 Shows of 2018

Posted by Pasidon on 27 December 2018 - 06:32 AM in Media Discussion

If life is a roller coaster, then I'm the guy who gets to disappoint children by pulling the brakes on it.  2018 is just a testament of how terrible once good shows can get, and as a result, we have new good shows that have wiggle room to become terrible in the future as well.  Who will join the junkyard of childish things, and who will come out on top this year?  Not Walking Dead.

 

#5 Gotham

 

gotham-cast-photo-season-5-1014x570.jpg

 

Gotham has been turning sour with terrible writing decisions and the annoying tendency to bring people back from the dead more than Jesus himself, but its 4th season was still a solid bit of television.  You just have to use you imagination to blot out some of the ghoulishly dumb plot twists.  They may replace the actress who played Poison Ivy THREE times, or regress every character's progression, but somehow, I still don't mind.  If they didn't bring back Barbra Keen just to turn her into a ninja prostitute, then maybe Gotham could have gotten higher on the list this year.  LEAVE PEOPLE DEAD

 

#4  The Marvelous Mrs Maisel

 

the_marvelous_mrs._maisel_s01e01_still_1

 

Amazon is allowed to get it right at least once, I guess.  The Marvelous Mrs. Mavel is a story of a obnoxiously Jewish woman who wants to be a comedian in the early 20th century, but since that's not being a housewife of a bar maid, the world conspires against her as she struggles to become the first successful woman in stand up comedy.  The horribly predictable witticisms sometimes made me want to punch a child, but I lived.

 

#3 G.L.O.W.

 

fyc-glow-1180x520.jpg

 

Do you like wrestling?  Me neither.  But here we are.  G.L.O.W. is a show about a failed sci-fi director in the 1980's who wants to cash in on the cheesy staged wrestling genera, but do it with women.  100% the best show about fake wrestling you'll ever see.  "Are you some sort of sick, perverted feminist with all these female equality shows, Pasidon?"  Probably.  And you will be, too.

 

#2 Daredevil

 

Daredevil-981065.jpg?r=1533204635924

 

He's back.  There was action.  There were tears (not mine.  I swear.  Mostly.)  Season 3 was a story about a blind guy who wants to save the city from a fat guy and a dirty cop who is dangerously good at throwing things.  Did he win?  Did he conquer his foes and come out on top?  Well, it doesn't matter since NETFLIX CANCELED IT.  So, no.  Daredevil didn't win since he no longer exists.  It was still one of the best seasons you'll watch from 2018.

 

#1  Happy!

 

https%3A%2F%2Fblueprint-api-production.s

 

Yaayyy.  Happy is the best show ever made.  How do I know this?  Because I watched it.  Have you?  No?  Then I'll cut this review short so you can GO WATCH IT.

Aw, I liked the embedding.  Made it easy to sample all that retro.

 

Also, Perturbetor doesn't ahve a new album yet, but he did work on a side-project.  Worth a listen.

We have a few folks from China, but yea, not enough to justify your name only being understandable to them.  But you're all Peanut'ed up.  Hope you're not allergic.

Uhhh... yes.  I suppose.  But no one here will know what to call you if you use any sort of Chinese characters.  Go ahead and post whatever assortment of characters you wish to use and I can just copy and paste them in for your name, if that's what you really want.




#1093920 sherman tank!

Posted by Pasidon on 25 November 2018 - 07:53 AM in Open Topic

If I recall, American tanks had better handling and mobility, but it was the shaped armor that helped the survivability of most Russian tanks.  Which feature makes for the better tank?  I'm sure there's a 10 hour documentary that actually has a staged tank battle to figure that.

#1093681 The Ambitious Project

Posted by Pasidon on 21 November 2018 - 02:58 AM in Tiberium Wars Editing

If it's dead, then how do you explain   Y O U?

 

And yea, all those things are possible.  BFME 2 and Tiberium Wars were both made in the exact same engine, and there's even BFME stuff already in the TW files and coding.  They copy and pasted quite a few things.  I'm sure there are tutorials on how to mess around with stuff like that.

Nope, those are not retro.  You need those heavy synth instruments and sci-fi noises thrown in there.  You can have this tip for free:

 

 

And you can swear as much as you want.  Just avoid the hateful 8 race words.
