    I watched Minding the Gap last night. It is a documentary about 4 young men who became friends through skateboarding and is a movie all about cycles of abuse & poverty in the dying city of Rockford Illinois. I love my home state and have been to Rockford many times for school events in high school. I saw so much of people I knew in this film. It's on hulu and I can't stop thinking about it. I highly recommend it for a look into what it's like living in a rust belt style city in the US as a young person.

    My theory is that people confuse vanilla wow being good with being 15 and playing a game with all your friends and having no responsibilities or obligations to do anything but play wow
  3. Netflix Originals

    I am a sucker for romantic stories and half my favorite Netflix Originals have been romances (dramatic or comedic.) The other half is a mix of reality & documentaries/mockumentaries To All the Boys I've Loved Before a delightful movie about a young Korean-American girl who idealizes love but is unwilling to ever confess her feelings. Through wacky circumstances her love letters are sent out and the recipient of one decides to strike a deal with her to pretend to date in order to make his ex girlfriend jealous. It's very good, very sweet & I love seeing stories with WoC protagonists. Highly recommend. Meteor Garden this is a Taiwanese romantic comedy series based off of the manga Boys Over Flowers. There have been like 6 adaptations of this Manga between Japan, Korea & China/Taiwan. Plucky protagonist goes to school and refuses to cow to beautiful powerful boys. Love triangle, will they won't they (they will.) Not a depiction of what one might actually want out of a romantic relationship, but this is fiction baybeee. I love the chemistry that the main two actors have, and it's fun to watch the characters change over the course of the run. Definitely does the Asian Drama thing where all of the kisses are so awkward looking and zoomed in on. Terrace House: Boys & Girls in the City and Terrace House: Opening New Doors with an honorable mention to Terrace House: Aloha State - The only good non-competition reality show. 3 men and 3 women live in a house together and move out whenever they feel that it's time for them to move on. They get jobs, they form friendships, they flirt and date each other, they resolve conflicts by sitting down and talking to each other. It's remarkable. Nailed It - The episode where they had to sculpt a human bust out of cake made me laugh so hard I felt sick. This show is very good. Reality competition baking show where they're all bad amateur bakers. American Vandal - Mockumentary series about high schoolers. Season 1 is properly phenomenal. Season 1 is a young man accused of drawing dicks on the cars in the teacher's parking lot and the 'investigative journalism' needed to find the truth.The acting is sublime, the jokes are hilarious, and functions as a great commentary on current trends in documentary making (podcasts and videos.) Season 2 episode 1 is super gross, but the rest of the episodes are great. Season 2 is a young man admits responsibility for the a series of poop based pranks and his friend asks the documentary film maker characters to come in and exonerate her friend. Season 1 for dick jokes, season 2 for poop jokes. Hip Hop Evolution - hosted by one of my favorite rappers, Shad, a documentary of the history of hip hop. If you like the comic Hip Hop Family Tree or are interested in seeing what the development of rap looked like, wholehearted recommend.

    Trevor Lacom who plays Colin Farrell's adorable chubby faced son is the best and only reason to watch season 2 to me.

  8. Looking for pacifist games

    I played a lot of Reus which allows for some pacifist victories. Reus is a game where you're given a planet that you view via a cross section and have 3 giants that shape the landscape and the kinds of places you make determine what kinds of societies grow there. you have 4 biomes that you can create: desert, mountain, swamp, & grassland/prairie. Your societies can go to war if they're unhappy and your giants have abilities that can enhance the landscape or attack the people, and the people can attack the giants if they are unhappy. If you are smart about how you handle the happiness of your people though, they'll never fight and you'll be able to hit your win condition without any conflict at all.

  11. Episode 448: Valkyria Chronicles 4

    i am very into the all caps Social Justice Warrior proper noun capitalization here. Clearly someone who is not familiar with the forums if our SJW agenda is of great concern.
  12. Idle Thumbs Hiatus

    To argue in favor of the Slack, I feel like i've made more friends and gotten to know more people through the slack than I did through the forums. I love the forums here & I love reading what everyone posts every day. We've done a pretty good job of splitting the slack out so that conversations are divided into categories in our creation of channels, to avoid the whiplash of topic change, and you can focus on what's interesting/important to you and not have to read channels that don't apply. It's a really nice place that is strictly a fan community. I like that it's a little more divorced from the creators of idle thumbs as you can speak openly without worrying about hurting one of the Thumbs' feelings about things that don't work for you, etc. The forums are great, and I continue to read regularly with occasional posts, but when i need a hit of a community that i can talk to and get feedback from or hear someone's opinions on something, the slack is where i go. The forums are great for mid to long form response and thoughts and the slack is great for exchanges that help you develop those thoughts in the first place. I think they both have a place. Slack was the replacement for IRC because IRC was unapproachable for many people (including me.) There are people who are active posters over in the slack that were only ever really lurkers here, and i find a lot of value in the lowered barrier of entry of the slack.

    A fairly recent addition to Netflix, is To All The Boys I've Loved Before. It follows a high school student, Lara Jean, who writes love letters to the boys she gets crushes on and then puts them in her closet. She uses them as an outlet for her feelings but never intends on them being sent. Through wacky circumstances they get mailed out and one recipient, Peter, a former crush from middle school, approaches her to ask her to help him. He wants to get his ex-girlfriend back and thinks making her jealous by pretending to date Lara Jean is the way to make that happen. Lara Jean agrees on his promise that he won't tell people about the letter. I am a huge sucker for teen movies. My favorite movie of all time is Say Anything. Dazed & Confused + Ferris Bueller's Day Off is my first warm day of spring double feature. Edge of Seventeen, which I gushed about on these forums, is one of my favorite movies of the past 5 years. The more contrived the concept, the more earnestly executed the better. ...Boys I've Loved Before is an extremely sweet movie and plays out about how you expect, but is so enjoyable in the process. Lara Jean goes from a passive girl, lonely and oblivious to an active participant in her life. It's an adorable love story with characters that I enjoyed spending time with. I love a movie about the interior life of a teen girl. It's hard being a young person figuring out what to do with the feelings you have. If you're looking for something light to watch for a date night or just a palate cleanser for the hell dimension we live in, I can't recommend it enough. It did acutely remind me that I am closer to 30 than to 16, so prepare yourself for that.
