^ Same here. Sad day indeed. But I was amused at this years' "What the hell is this doing in my pocket!?" which turned out to be one of the pom-poms my cat plays with.

2 receipts from mcdonalds.
8 cents.
6 napkins.
A pen.
A tweaker screwdriver.

I was impressed that I only had that much crap in my pockets this time.

42 degrees this morning in NY, had to finally take the jacket out of storage.

Sad day :(

i think theres a remote possibility mnk with be changed to dex   
Monks in FF have never been associated with serious ranged attacks, always massive hp and strength. I'm more leaning towards Hathen's logic of dex being added to monk gear, though I doubt it's gonna adjust other stats to make room for it. As he said, it's more or less an arbitrary stat for non bards and tanks. Hell even tanks benefit very little from it.

That being said, Ninja is statting to sound less savory every day...

The Dark Knight moment from yesterday's live stream:

Guess I'm sold for another year.

Was watching the livestream and they just announced Dark Knight as one of the new jobs a moment ago.
Interest officially caught.

...Personally, I'm more interested in what middle-aged hulk could play Batou...
Ron Perlman.

Dice, I went back like 5 pages looking, what happened to your thumb?

Haps: I pretty much lost my job due to a lack of work available. Filed for unemployment last week, should see some cash from it next week. Thankfully, I'm in the works to start a new job as my own contractor, so no more middle man making money off my exploits. Just need liability insurance....which will possibly run me upwards of 2000 bucks. Hopefully the couple of private gigs I get meanwhile will ease the lack of workload.

In other news, been back at the gym, added a couple miles of walking before and after each visit now. Hopefully the winter isn't as horrific as I'm fearing so I can maintain it, cuz treadmills are boring shit. Still aiming for my 405 bench before the end of the year, but my recent hiatus has definitely impacted my performance. Hopefully more determination and continued visits will improve my lifting again, though I still can bench a solid 315.

Got caught in the rain today, fucking soaked my slightly oversized family guy shirt, so I looked like I was wearing the deepest neckline t shirt ever. I was pretty embarassed til I noticed I didn't have man boobs. That made me feel better :)

Dracula Untold -
This turned out to be decently entertaining. I would not call it a "good" movie by any regular definition, but I still liked it anyway. The key is that I know the difference.
Luke Evans makes a great Dracula. He looks the part, and has great presence. I give him full props for going all out with a role that some would phone in.
The movie looks really good, which I find to be less and less of an issue nowadays, even with lower budget movies.
The story really does show a side of him we rarely see. I think they went a tad overboard with it, though. We are supposed to see him as some heroic figure here, sacrificing everything for his family, and his people. It felt very un-Dracula-like.
There were some story issues, too, but nothing that really bothered so much that I can remember it now.
Fair warning for Drac fans: This is NOT a horror movie. This is an action/drama. There are certainly some bloody battles and such, but nothing scary.
I eagerly want to see this because it's as close to a Castlevania mo ie as we'll ever get.

Fellow forum dweller posted this elsewhere, I had to link it

(I know it's pretty big, but I feel it's pretty laughably accurate and should be shown in full glory. I will not be mad if it's modified or if I am asked to edit the img tags out of it)

Kinda digging the Flash on CW. First episode was really on point, hit the hero button in me really hard. I hope it's a sign of things to come.

Okay, so I'm sure I'm going to get recommendations for a ton of old PC RPGs, but if there's any console games that actually fit this criteria I would really like to hear about it.

-I love party/character-building RPGs
-Usually this means there's a ton of classes to choose from. I prefer RPGs with more complex classes than just the simple warrior-rogue-mage thing, and hybrid/unique classes are a huge plus
-RPGs these days seem to be really settled into a 3 or 4-person party, games that make you build a party larger than this would be great
-Lots of customization would be a huge plus, so either skill trees or limiting your skill choices out of a huge pool, that sort of thing

FTR I don't need to know about Final Fantasy, Bravely Default, Dragon Quest or Etrian Odyssey. I've played and enjoyed all of those.
Tactics Ogre, Wild Arms XF, both psp games.

The aspartame arguements remind me of the violent video game arguements. How many times have independant research groups "performed a study" on violent video games and the associated effects they have on children and their developmental understanding of right amd wrong and the like? How many times have we all rolled our eyes at said results, knowing full well they're more or less funded by "soccer moms" who just need a war to wage?

The FDA says aspartame is fine in its current rate of consumption, and I'm fine with that answer.

I'm just throwing it out there that a lot of people do the diet soft drink solution because of the huge amount of sugar they're trying to avoid in a regular soft drink. In an odd turn of events, I personally just prefer the taste now, diet pepsi is far less....sugary tasting than regular pepsi.

Anybody got any tips for the Level 10 Lancer Guild Quest: The Stone of Courage? Because I am getting creamed. I can barely hold my own against one of those stupid birds, let alone 6+ attacking me at once. And can I leave that spot or am I stuck there? Every time I leave it, more seem to spawn. Or if you're on Exodus, maybe you want to help? I might need a conjurer to keep me alive...
Increase your level and gear, it really helps. Also, have potions equipped. Best advice I can give is to just keep trying, I know I cleared the lancer questline without a problem...but I had already run through my warrior stuff and was i90 war by that point.
