  1. BREAKING: Luchador being caught by Pirata Morgan looks like a million bucks
  2. lol yeah that came off way more like "NO BODY LOVES ME T__T" than I intended. I've got a good & strong support network, it's just bitter to learn about that so far after the fact because of who his circle became. Nothing to be done, I suppose. Kind of you to say that, though.
  3. One of my best friends from high school passed away. In February. No one told me because the only person in his life that still wanted me around was him. I'm gonna be in shock for quite a while, I suspect.
  4. Similarly, as someone who loathed the first game and is only playing the second on account of a labyrinthine dare process, seeing the spoilers for the laster of us make me extremely excited. That's probably not great news for people who liked the first one.
  5. Alright, this is inspired by the bombcast and then by me changing one of the answers and bringing it to my friends, only to discover I'm the only person I know to feel this way. Fuck Marry Kill: Procedural Generation (roguelikes, minecrafts, dwarf fortress) "The Meta" (includes Team Comp for team multiplayer stuff, tier lists for fighting games) Deck-building (MTG, Slay the Spire, etc)
  6. I'm saving Santo for a seperate mix but I'll look into Martín
  7. So here's a completely unrelated question: I've been putting together like Wrasslin Mixtapes for friends, one per two weeks, and I've been working with themes. I have a good theme now but I'm trying to see if there's people I'm missing. The theme is Folklore Characters, which is to say wrestlers that have more of a specific mystique and niche in wrestling history outside of the norm. The names I came up with are: Cassandro Ox Baker Necro Butcher Survival Tobita Gypsy Joe Mike Quackenbush* Great Sasuke Mecha Mummy Bull Curry Tom Magee Anyone else come to mind? *to explain my reasoning: quack's weird quasi-self-taught parallel universe WOS/lucha is, i think, kind of the apex of what someone can achieve with raw wrestling nerddom and tape study, highlighted by him being able to parlay that into actually great matches with legends in those styles
  8. with all due respect, is there a reason there wasn't a team of Greats? Great Sasuke, Great Antonio, Great Muta, etc
  9. I have a list of like 35 films I'm intending to watch over the next two months, which is maybe more movies than I've seen in one year in my life, but so it goes. Here are some brief reviews of the stuff I've seen so far: The Rover: off a friend's recommendation. Enjoyed it well enough. Robert Pattinson is fantastic in it, and it also is one of the few post-apocalyptic movies that didn't bore me. Dredd: I hate cops. Yet, this is about as good as an American-made action movie about a hero cop can probably be. LOVED the Slo-Mo scenes. Thought it lost steam halfway through, p. much after the chaingun bit. Jonah Hex: I dont know that I recommend that anyone watches this? But man I laughed fucking hard multiple times during this. I love multi-million dollar hubris that fails, and buddy this had it. Tucker and Dale vs. Evil: I don't know what I expected but I thought it was pretty good. It's really hard for me to enjoy comedies (my sense of humor is much more partial to, say, Wonder Showzen than Judd Apatow) but this one worked for me. ok now i have to stop running from finishing The Act of Killing because it's making my head spin once per ten minutes
  10. quick procedural question since this'll be the first one of these I submit a ballot to: are short films allowed?
  11. going through some old shootwrasslin and I rediscovered this, my favorite celebration of a match ever
  12. My immediate family has a lot of the things that makes this thing a killer me: asthma, history of pneumonia brother: asthma, diabetes, high blood pressure mother: diabetes, high blood pressure, pre-existing lung conditions, over 65 so uh yeah we're holed up, good luck to the rest of y'all
  13. I woke up to a violent anxiety attack, and as if summoned, here is new Protomartyr to put what I was feeling into too-uncomfortable Words.
  14. here's an easy way to tell which one is more likely true: Not The One Bruce Pritchard Said
  15. it's almost like suda has more bad games than good ones and the two everyone loves are like accidents or miracles compared to the standard fare it's almost exactly like that
  16. Hyper Light Drifter on Switch is incredible and has extra dungeons. It is also my game of the decade. If you like Zelda and synthesizers and mystery, Hyper Light Drifter is fantastic.
  17. sequel to the story mode he wrote for whichever SNES game he did. Super 3? anyways at the end of that the main character has Bad End and in this one you'll be his son
  18. honestly, I preferred imagining that yeah, he did do that, but the kid was being such a shit that everyone simultaneously decided "that's cool" and no one rolled over.
  19. Part of the reason I love post-punk so much is because some of those bands were so ahead of everything that it felt like they had every great rock idea possible, and then everyone just gave up trying to top it. Gang of Four was definitely one of those bands, and Andy Gill's playing is a HUGE part of that. His guitar sounded like glass shattering and it was the perfect compliment for That Rhythm Section. They damn near stole the entirety of Urgh! A Music War with this performance of "He'd Send In The Army." One of my friends said he played guitar here the same way that the first Godzilla feels. RIP.
  20. KENTUCKY ROUTE ZERO [4] I am writing this as I am still processing Act 5, because I feel I will need to do that for quite some time. What I can say in this waiting period is that, having taken the day off to play through the entirety of it again, it is an outstanding achievement in narrative for video games, and even as it takes time for me to sit with Act 5 and "What It All Meant," every moment I remembered as being impactful in the prior 6 years (I came in on Act 3 in 2014), and it adds up to one of the first great tragedies in this medium. The only reason I would say you shouldn't play it is if you get irrationally angry at reading, to the point where you endanger yourself or others. I recommend it to literally everyone else.
