  1. Idle Thumbs Hiatus

    I like all of this. Also, to add I threw in about 260 dollars on the original kickstarter, but wasn't a patreaon supporter due to not having a regualr job/income at that time. If the Thumbs did come back, and I get the job I am hoping for - I will definitely be backing them, even if it is only 5 dollars.

    Hhahah - I only saw this now, you never replied to my message so I figured you did your own thing. Khao San road is weird because it has always been a mess but now it is becoming popular with young, rich Thais as a place to slum it with crusty foreigners. I hate it there and only go if I am looking to get shit-faced or hook-up (and even then, at 38 years old it is an awkward thing to meet people on Khao San) China Town is really nice and I am glad you found a good place to sit and drink. I love Bangkok a lot and wish I could stay here forever, but I am already looking at jobs in Toronto, Edinburgh, London and Brighton.
  3. Psychonauts 2

    So, the T-Shirts were supposed to get delivered to my old place of work but never showed up. The company in charge is doing a bang up job of trying to redirect them. Also, this Starbreeze stuff is a little worrying
  4. Movie/TV recommendations

    Yeah, I also imagine that there are elements in the documentary that film isn't even going to touch. I won't say anything because the way it unravels in the documentary is what makes it jarring, sad and kind of beautiful.
  5. Movie/TV recommendations

    Watch the documentary instead - it is a way better story.
  6. Movie/TV recommendations

    Yeah - it is good and just what I needed this week.
  7. Movie/TV recommendations

    I watched Hearts Beat Loud and it is this sweet little story about a father (played with uncharacteristic softness by Nick Offerman) and daughter recording some songs together while dealing with their lives. It is almost a musical with the amount of songs that are played throughout but what I like about it is the way the film is into giving the audience an idea of how a song is manufactured and what some of the process is behind putting tracks together. There is nothing brilliant about it, it is just well placed as a generally kind and warm film - that also isn't too tacky. I would strongly recommend it in place of a cheesy Christmas film.

    For sure dude - I can offer all kinds of suggestions. I am going to Cambodia to renew my visa and also get drunk for a week as a means of celebrating Christmas

    Sorry, didn't see this until now. Are you looking for touristy things to do, good places to eat and drink and/or do you know where you will be staying? I do a little work remotely and am trying to figure out what to do next since my divorce. Send me a private message and I can recommend a plethora of things.
  10. Movie/TV recommendations

    Women led films outside of Korean, kid and/or mega blockbuster films aren't seen as appealing here. Same goes for films with black leads, with the exception obviously being Black Panther. Widows is both of those things.
  11. Movie/TV recommendations

    I've been psyched for Widows since I saw the trailer a month or so back, I really hope it comes to Thailand, but due to the cast and the director there is a good chance it won't (I don't think we even got Ocean's 8 over here).
  12. Netflix Originals

    My favourite was the section with Zoe Kazan. I wonder if we have anyone that can comment on the representation of Native Americans and the scalping stuff - I was under the impression that this practice was more of a white person thing?
  13. Idle Fiction Jam - Rumours and Hearsay

    So, coming back to this after 2 years feels appropriate. I've been working on a piece called 'Dance of the Loot Goblin' which is about a video games tournament and also 'In my head I was degrading' which I won't say too much but I need to do a bunch of work around understanding Buddhism's perspective on the afterlife and how scholars might feel about the aftelife and afterdeath. I know this thread died but I was really enjoying it.
  14. Movie/TV recommendations

    I now feel bad, because I had completely forgotten about the son.
  15. Movie/TV recommendations

    I guess I am one of the few people that actually liked Season 2. Colin Farrel is great in it, I actually think he is great in most things he does but he had that Leonardo Di Caprio period where he was too much of a heart throb for people's tastes. Sure, it isn't the tour de force of Season 1 but I found the interplay between the four main characters really compelling, even if Taylor Kitsch remains flat as always, it actually works for him. I know the idle thumbs crew did not like that shoot out, but the brutality of it left me breathless as this wild explosion in the middle of a very slow build up. Even Vince Vaughn in the desert was really cool. Also, I am a huge Masherhala Ali fan, it has been a delight watching the slight awkward stereotype in Predators blossom through shows like 3800 and House of Cards.
