    Labo looks really, really intriguing. But I can't help but think it's going to be a nightmare of poor quality control, too high prices, and difficult to assemble...things. But I sure am interested to see how it plays out.

    Thought I'd read he had said something non-committal but, yeah, looks like he didn't fart around this time and said he's coming back.

    Netflix added season four of Halt and Catch Fire so I decided to binge the whole series. Had already seen the first three seasons but it had been awhile so was in need of a refresher. I liked the show even more the second time. The last season is great, with pretty much perfect endings for everyone, even if at least one of them is not the ending you'd want for that particular character. The first season especially really nails the feel for the times even if the characters of Donna and Cam don't quite fit the timeframe appearance-wise. It does grate a little bit that the main characters seemingly invent or predict every major computer-related development of the last 30 years but I suppose that's OK. We're also supposed to just forget that Boz hired some dirty cops to beat up Joe and see him as "lovable ole Boz". Still, niggles aside, this is a really great show and I highly recommend it. I'm a 1980s computer guy through-and-through so this show really, really spoke to me.

    I feel like it should be a felony with a long prison term attached to release a soundtrack with music that isn't in the movie.

    So Big Ben won that power play. That would seem to indicate he won't be retiring.
  6. Pitchers & Catchers Report 2/12/18

    I think it's a combination of smarts and collusion, combined with tanking. Teams like the Tigers know they can't win, no matter what, so why spend several hundred million to just be decent? Makes no sense. On the other hand, the total lack of activity sure points to some colluding. If there was no collusion then SOMEONE would be an active player in the free agent market. As for the Marlins, I hope MLBPA does file a grievance. It's absolutely ridiculous that approval went through for the sale of that franchise to an ownership group that has flat out stated they could not afford the payroll they were buying. If that's not worthy of a grievance, I'm not sure what would be.

    Saw The Post over the weekend. It was excellent. It's pretty obviously Oscar bait but ends up good anyway. Best part was getting to give a history lesson to the ticket taker kid as I was leaving. It was fun to open his eyes to history a little bit.

    It's good but the jumping timeline can be a challenge.
  9. They already remastered the Ezio Trilogy.

    Google. Ever heard of it?

    Regarding the Williams/Wahlberg thing - yeah, he should have probably not let people run with the "he worked for free" story. But I have no problem with him getting paid. Maybe next time the movie company doesn't hire a guy like Spacey. As for Williams, she needs better agents. She worked for free (per diem) because she HAD TO. Re-shoots were covered in her original contract. They weren't in Marky Mark's, so he was able to get paid. That's 100% on her and her reps.
  12. Sexual Assault and Harassment in Hollywood

    The girl was 17, of legal age in both Scotland (her home country) and New York (where the encounter took place). So, yeah, a bit skeevy but she wasn't underage and there was absolutely nothing illegal about that attempted encounter.
  13. 2017-18 NHL SEASON: Period Two

    For years, the Red Wings have been soft. Long gone are Shanny, McCarty and Kocur to take care of business when needed. Today's game with Pittsburgh was a perfect example. In the last 5 seconds of a blowout 4-1 loss to Pittsburgh, Evgeni Malkin suckered Andres Athanasiou from behind with a vicious crosscheck. And the Wings response was... basically nothing. A timid slash from Danny DeKeyser and no follow-up at all. It was the kind of cheap shot that demands accountability and there was nothing. Ugh.

    Yikes. That's some scary stuff.
  15. Ubisoft has announced that the next AC release will be a remastered version of Assassin's Creed Rogue. I am pretty excited for this as I still haven't really played the ps3 version.
