This team is gonna be out of commission to recover for a minute, save DINCREST who seems to never really get all that stressed.

This is funny because people think this about me in real life, but the truth is that I get plenty stressed and plenty worried about stuff... I'm just good at not showing it.

I'm a hellion?  Excellent!


EDIT: Apparently the hellion is a large, muscular, violently aggressive barbarian woman.  Death by snu-snu!

That moment when you realize several things:
1) The music on this album ("Refugee" by the band Bad4Good) was written and played by kids age 12-16. Hell, when I was that age, I could barely play scales on my bass, and these kids were tearing it up! That cover of Phil Lynott's "Nineteen" is ferocious!

2) The singer was Budnick from Camp Anawannna, John Connor's buddy in Terminator 2, Stoop Kid in Hey Arnold... and he has some vicious range!

3) The drummer now plays for Avenged Sevenfold and has played with Bad Religion and several other killer bands

4) And that this is probably the best album you've never heard.

(At least take a moment to listen to the song "Curious Intentions." Guarantee you'll want to hear more.)

In thinking about the Olympics, FIFA, and all the political and megalomaniacal crap surrounding them, at the end of the day I do support the athletes themselves. They earned the right to compete at this elite global level and several athletes from my neck of the woods are representing.  And the refugee team just being present- I hope that positive message isn't lost. I want to see the athletes do well and I hope they get their due for working so hard and not get cheated by the powers that be. I support the athletes, but not the IOC governing body.

It's kinda like the sentiment, "I'm not against the soldiers, I'm against the wars." All the love and respect in the world for the military (military runs VERY strong in my family) but the organization (read: the government) that exploits them in these pointless wars that do more harm than good... yeah.

A wig party sounds like it would be fun.  

That being said, Halloween is my favorite holiday because costumes.  I also dress up when I trawl the shops for Free Comic Book Day.  I dressed up as Gambit this year and I might need to acquire another costume.  Oh, and when I played with Pool of Thorns, we all dressed up as Star Wars characters for a Halloween show- the drummer was Emperor, guitarist was Chewbacca, singer was Leia, and I was Lando Calrissian.  Right now, the costumes in my closet are Gambit, Ghostbuster, and Lando (though I'd need to grow out the moustache to pull that off.)

So far Velvet is my favorite character to play as in Leiftrasir. I'm a sucker for mid-range melee fighters, and her movement abilities are really fun to mess around with. She also has my favorite guard animation in the game.
I found Velvet to be the strongest character in the remake. When I had to do the boss rush or repeat an annoying boss fight for bad endings, she was the one I chose.

I agree that Velvet and Mercedes are super improved in the remake.  They were weaksauce in the original.  That plus Cornelius's final stage being rebalanced properly were two of the best things about the remake.

D- this story sounds like the daily affirmation that was posted in my gym yesterday: "The only B.S. I need in my life is breakfast and squats."

As for grey hair, I got my first grey hair at age 23.  That was 15 years ago.

2010 Karate Kid was on TV the other day, so I watched it. 

The TV and film industry needs to stop with all the 80s remakes/reboots/reimaginings because none of them are ever as good as the original.  Even kids these days will say, "the older version was better."  That being said, the one 80s remake/reboot/reimagining I found most watchable, and even kinda enjoyable, was Karate Kid 2010.  Okay, so Jaden Smith's attempts at subtlety made him come off as really wooden, the cheesy modern music in the soundtrack didn't appeal to me as much as the cheesy 80s music in the original, and some of the scripting had the kids trying to come off as older than they really were, but there are plenty of movies I've enjoyed that were just as flawed if not more so.  The whole "American kid in China" really heightened the sense of alienation (with the culture shock) and not fitting in.  And although Noriyuki "Pat" Morita (Mr. Miyagi) may be the best karate master to never study karate, Jackie Chan being a legit martial artist added gravity and even the fake moves present merely for the sake of the movie (the cobra mimic thing) at least looked more legit than the crane kick.  Do I still prefer the original?  Yeah, because nostalgia and childhood.  But Karate Kid 2010 certainly wasn't bad.

Dude, that hike sounds like the most amazing experience.  Tell us about it when you finish.  I look forward to reading about it. 

Anyway, a hap is that that the daily affirmation posted at my gym today amused me: "The only B.S. I need in my life is Breakfast and Squats."

I've had to learn the hard way to "tag" my sarcasm either with an old school "(/sarcasm)" or a ":P" or a "(not)" or my "*tongue firmly entrenched in cheek*" type tag. 

This is appropo for this conversation now: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fb7qK8jor-A

Oddly enough, because I work with autistic students who tend to have more literal interpretations of things, I've had to verbally "tag" my sarcasm when I would speak to them because I'm a bit of a jokester and my M.O. is that I want to speak to them like I would any other 17 year-old so that they don't feel like they're being singled out or anything. 
41  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What's the haps? on: August 04, 2016, 04:24:06 PM
I'm actually not.  I see enough pointless rudeness on the news and in my daily life that if someone puts their foot in their mouth before I come by, I'll just leave it alone because I don't want to know and figure I'm better off not knowing.  

No major haps to report on my end.
42  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Youtube on: August 04, 2016, 09:47:23 AM
Don't know if this was posted already, but it's worth a listen.  It's a former CIA agent discussing war and foreign policy.  It's a slice of common sense that doesn't seem to be all that common these days.

If we're deviating into "notice me, senpai" then the "so she became senpai" meme makes me chuckle, though part of it because of the snu-snu meme...



As for the "Dramatc" game with monkey-suit boy, nothing in the news so far has said it's a free-to-pay microtransaction thing like Exvius, but I'm not holding my breath.  I do hope we get SaGa Scarlet Grace for US Vita, though.

True.  Those Africanized "Killer" bees come to mind.

Given that the goose and deer populations are rampantly out of control (particularly due to the lack of predators to keep things in checks and balances), I say mass elimination!  For ecology! 

Insects, I'm fine with.  They're a more vital part of the ecosystem than overabundant geese and deer. 

I don't feel guilty about eliminating critters that invade my home.  Out in the natural world, animals eliminate other animals that invade their dens/territories, so I'm within my natural rights.  That being said, I'm usually kind to spiders.  I'll keep those alive and let them go outside, since spiders consume vermin.  In the part of India my mom grew up in, it was considered good luck if a snake hung out in your back yard, because that meant vermin would stay away.
