Today I learned the lesson of adding coworkers as friends on Facebook. Had to remove most of them tonight.

I've learned over the years that establishing a clear line between personal and professional lives greatly reduces confusion; drama; general bullshit; and potential awkwardness. Then again, that could all just be my case. Ah, well...

I had someone from another office rat me out about driving to work to that office after taking Ambien. Granted, that office is bigger, and HR specifically demanded that I be at that office, which is over an hour drive away (compared to a short walk from my normal office) on days where I'm not assigned any work. (In tax, we usually work from project to project.) So, I did what I had to do to make it to the office on time after getting enough sleep and I get yelled at it about it.

So Alex Jones, the ultra-right-wing racist lunatic behind Infowars, is currently involved in a child custody case.  The interesting thing here is that as part of this case his lawyer is claiming that his whole hate-filled shtick is "performance art", not his true beliefs.

It's good to have that clear and out in the open now.  Somebody ought to inform his fervent followers...which happen to include the president of the United States...

...you mean this didn't actually happen?

Speaking of Rey, he's a blonde that looks way too good in red, I'm guessing he has some extremist ideas? Also, that particular shade looks familiar... Is he another clone? I bet he's another clone.
I assume you mean an extra clone of Mu's dad. In which case the question must be asked of why would there be an extra clone of him lying around. If he was a clone, it would be hard to gauge his age due to the shortened tellimers (no idea of how to spell that), but he looks too young to have been alive while Mu's dad was alive considered that the original clone (forgot that asshole's name) killed Mu's dad when he looked like he was 5-7 or something. So the question would be...why would Kira's dad make a clone of Mu's dad after Mu's dad was already dead and Kira was presumably already made.

Unless Rey is a clone of the clone...in which case his tellimers must be on the verge of not existing.

Side note, since you mentioned his name, I feel like I should point out what Roanoke is because that is obscure trivia outside of North America (I assume). Roanoke is the name of a colony in modern day North Carolina that just vanished one day and no one knows how or why. Do his name is pretty much "New Lost Colony." Take that as you will.

And yes the characters get hit with the idiot stick a lot in the first half of Destiny. They sometimes get hit with it in the second half, but I think it is less often.

Cool. I did not know that :)

I have to admit I'm a little baffled about how ya'all can talk so much about Gundam Seed.  A show that while I technically did watch, it made so little impression on me that I can't remember any of the characters...or what happened, even.

Talking about anime is literally my job. Well, one of them anyway. Not the best paying one, that's for sure...

And even so, talking about something is easy once you find a starting point, like... Rey is prettier than pretty much any female character in SEED. Probably because his face has more natural proportions. Man, most of the same-face characters in SEED look like freaks of nature...

Speaking of Rey, he's a blonde that looks way too good in red, I'm guessing he has some extremist ideas? Also, that particular shade looks familiar... Is he another clone? I bet he's another clone.

Compared to Persona 3/4, P5's soundtrack somehow seems more subtle, almost... insidious.
While Mass Destruction (P3) starts out big and flashy, Last Surprise begins with less fanfare, and almost fades into the background.

And then you discover that, a couple minutes into a battle, the music has snuck up on you, and you're sitting there groovin'.

ByOTheWay: Ran out of time today, so I'm only as far as the Library. Grumble...Grumble...


Phantom Edit: Work is kicking my ass as of late, so I'm still not done with this game yet. At the very least, I'm gonna need to farm a few more supplies in order to get past Ganon's fourth form (or should I say eighth as each form has two phases?; either way, I'm going through Arrows and Food like goddamn water). You'd think I'd been smart enough to at the very least, not get this game right after a sizable break, let alone right into the start of the busiest time of the goddamn year.

I watched Gundam Seed Destiny many years ago, back in that golden age when you could still find anime on Canadian cable TV.  I have mostly forgotten it (or perhaps blocked it out), but suffice it to say that it was the last Gundam series I watched.  The residual impression was such that I have not bothered with the franchise since.

...okay, I did buy the Turn A Gundam soundtrack, but that was purely a Yoko Kanno thing.

Agreed. I actually love when I have some locked treasure chests to mop up on the last visit, 'cause fighting your way back through the palace with that playing really completes the "Phantom Thief" vibe.

The Life will Change instrumental track that plays after you place the calling card is just incredible.
