  1. has nobody tried a modern, ironic take on the john romero ad? also, i bet "video game designer" would actually be a very useful skill in some kind of robot war for the fate of the earth? we'd probably need to abstract the battlefields, or use clever software to befuddle the enemy.
  2. So I'm not sure if i just skipped a part of this cast, or just am forgetting an older story, but Nick says something about "like the time I knocked over the Krispy Kreme" sign. Is this part of the greater Thumbs ARGverse?
  3. For the exercise inclined, I think this is one of my favorite on the web: http://www.exrx.net/Lists/Directory.html GIFs detailing good form, and hard to understand medical explanation of anything you might want. They have guides to any type of routine you might want. I've only ever really done 3 Day Splits (this version: Chest/Triceps, Back/Biceps, Shoulders/Legs).
  4. Movie/TV recommendations

    Oh man, we just finished American Vandal, and it is exceptionally good. Funny, tragic, and impeccably built and acted. I love the way it turns in on itself.
  5. Important If True 32: A Wish Upon a Star

    in the interest of nick being full of it all the time i think the jury is way out on stretching, and i believe the consensus is that if you're just lifting weights it does more harm than good.
  6. The Big FPS Playthrough CURRENT GAMES: Dishonored (2012)

    And Abyss Odyssey, which is like outsider metroidvania. I think it was discussed on Thumbs, maybe Danielle era? I dig their games, because of their rough edges, as much as in spite of. They're also based in Chile, so a little off the front lines of software development.
  7. Movie/TV recommendations

    Oh man, thanks! I wish I had picked up R100 in time. That looks right on too.
  8. Stargate

    Oh man, I love Stargate! (not Atlantis so much though) There is a remarkable amount of gas in the SG1 tank for a show that went on for like 10 years, and managed to get stronger in its last years after RDA burnt out. I also really liked Dark Matter. I haven't seen Travelers on Netflix yet. I also am ambivalent to the movie, or maybe hostile because Roland Emmerich is kind of a hacky bummer. Has anybody plunked down the All Access money? Are they widescreen episodes, which I think you get on the DVDs or the old TV 3:4s that are on Hulu?
  9. I just started this episode but one tiny aside that stuck with me. Chris started by mentioning the unresolved stories, etc. A weird one for me is how Nadine DOES resolve hers. She shoveled her way out of the shit, and is living a fulfilling life and lets Ed/Norma live theirs, which is just kind of funny until you view it through the whole season and how the opposite turned out for the Coopers. How the obsession unwinds their lives.
  10. haha. A+! man, I died at the 1 star LGA read. To close, here is a news story unrelated to pooping or robots that might be of some use, though the headline is probably better than the reality: http://www.wbrz.com/news/photos-show-blood-leaking-from-ground-behind-baton-rouge-funeral-home/?ncid=edlinkushpmg00000313

    Thanks everyone! These are great selections!
  12. Movie/TV recommendations

    Hey all, help! End of the month is my annual 24 hour nerd-a-thon some friends and i have been throwing for 25 years, and I need movie recommendations. Preferred parameters: Newish (or newly found/released (Samurai Cop was a fun hit when it was resurrected)) Remarkable/Unusual/Terrible/Disturbing/Weird! Ultra violence is A-Ok, salacious torture and/or sexual violence is not! Ideally not streaming on common services (but this is an older rule and obviously getting harder to abide) Previous hits: Hard to Be a God, Upstream Color, Turkish Star Wars, Neil Breen's Double Down, Hard Ticket to Hawii, The Visitor, The Raid I've slacked a bit this year, so far I only have Neil Breen's latest: Pass-Thru
  13. Half-Life 2: Episode 3

    At this point, the resistance will have failed or succeeded, no thanks to me. Old friends have been silenced, or fallen by the wayside. I no longer know or recognize most members of the research team, though I believe the spirit of rebellion still persists. Kind of heartbreaking. Boy I'd love to a series of multimedia somethings on games that might have been. All the versions of Diablo 3 before the thing that shipped, Half Life, BioShock Infinite. Videos of the parts that worked, interviews about the things they wanted but didn't. So really at this point if there is ever another HL, it's going to be "New Half Life" for the Vive, right?
  14. Road Trip Recommendations

    Wolf Hall, A Brief History of Seven Killings, The Big Burn, and The Scar are 4 of my favorite audio books.
  15. any chance somebody could give the me the time code for when they prey spoilers end? i haven't gotten far enough in yet.
