  1. Finished watching Chojin Sentai Jetman. I can definitely see why people like this season, though I wouldn’t call it my favorite season at this point. Things get really real in this season compared to the other Super Sentai seasons I’ve watched, as in civilians actually die instead of everyone getting rescued, to the point it makes you go “This is a kids show!?!?” It even ends on an ambiguous note where Black Condor is stabbed by a purse snatcher and you don’t know if he dies from his wound or not (he doesn’t reveal it to his teammates because he doesn’t want to ruin Red Hawk and White Swan’s wedding) but the much later season Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger eventually reveals that he did indeed die. Even the fates of the villains is horrible (one is sent to the psych ward, one is stabbed by the boss, one dies a warriors death and the boss has a lot of blood coming from his mouth when killed by the rangers) Well my next watch will be less graphic since I’m doing Adventure Time Seasons 7-‘10’
  2. Not one for me but would be one for the people involved with the story I heard on the radio. The station I listen to has this segment called “Fired from America” which is about people doing incredibly stupid things. Well in today’s story this guy and his fiancée were at a strip club and the police had to be called. Apparently he drank 33 beers! That shouldn’t even be possible! I found a BAC calculator to figure out what his BAC would be and I went with the conservative estimate of 4% beer, 160 weight (average weight) and if this happened over the course of 6 hours. The number was 0.62! I then did a hard estimate of 7% beer and 1 hour and the number was 1.2%. Your body starts shutting down at 0.40 so someone miscounted how many beers he had or he has a rare gene to handle that much alcohol.
  3. Have you ever watched a film or show, read a book or played a game and started thinking that the designated good guy(s) might be the real villain? After I first watched Moana I actually felt like Maui was the villain of the story, just a redemption arc villain, but so many people keep thinking he’s the male hero of the story. Another I thought about while playing Lego Dimensions. I’ve never watched the Legends of Chima show but I already know that the crocodile tribe are supposed to be the designated villains but while playing Lego Dimensions one of the Chima quests comes from the Lion tribe leader and the way he phrases the quest I couldn’t help thinking “wait, are the Lions the real villains?” I thought this because they hoard all the CHI to themselves, refuse to let anyone else use it (which has led to others trying to make a synthetic version) and hunt down anyone who takes even a drop of it. Oh and the CHI is apparently necessary for connecting with the great animal spirits. In any other media a group that does this is almost always the villain of the story so it seems suspect that a hero group would do something like this. Heck the only reason the crocodile tribe even does bad things is because they keep being denied access to CHI, when other tribes do get permission it’s heavily regulated how it’s used, and they just want to be connected to the great crocodile spirit. I guess reptiles will always be villains even when they are trying to do the right thing.
  4. A public image change at least.
  5. Finally getting around to finishing Chojin Sentai Jetman. I only have 3 discs left so I want to finish this show.
  6. In regards to Amaram: since we don’t know what he was really like before the Kaladin flashbacks this is just speculation on my part, what if he was just put in a bad spot at the time and has just become more fanatical since then where he has absolutely no issue doing it during the events of Oathbringer but absolutely would have to think about it during the WOK flashback. It wouldn’t be out of the realm of realism for him to become that entrenched in his beliefs in a couple years since people in cults can change just like that. Now I could be proven wrong and it turns out he was always like that but the events as seen seem to show he was at least decent, and I mean decent in the nicest way possible considering what he possibly did to Jasnah when they were younger, but has grown more unhinged as the series has gone on until he has joined with the devil himself.
  7. Finished Lego Dimensions. There were 3 gold bricks that refused to register or not pop up at all. Going to take a break from gaming but I wanted to at least get Kingdom Hearts 1.5+2.5 ReMIX installed first.
  8. Picked up 3 more comics. These are the two Shattered Grid volumes of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and The Walking Dead: Here’s Negan for $5. The Walking Dead one came with a copy of #100 with the B&N variant which is nice, though I don’t collect issues so not necessary for me, and the Power Rangers ones I’m waiting to read since the full Shattered Grid event is told over 4 volumes (MMPR Volume 7 #25-28, MMPR Volume 8 #29-30 & Shattered Grid Finale #1, GGPR Volume 3 #9-12 and Lost Chronicles 2018 Annual #1. There’s also the FCBD special but I have to wait for the Shattered Grid collection for that.)
  9. Onto the final 10 worlds in Lego Dimensions. It’s just the ones from this decade remaining.
  10. @Emperor Stick You only played the first couple sequences of AC3? Haytham’s just the tutorial character. You should at least play it until you’re past Haytham since you get a nice twist about him at the end of sequence 3. Now some missions are a pain to play like the Paul Revere midnight run and Bunker Hill but once you get past both sets of tutorials (Haytham’s and Connor’s) you’re already halfway through the game. It’s best to play it just to get to The Tyranny of King Washington, that’s much better than the main game but you need to play the main game to the end to understand the relationships of the characters better. Yes, good that you plan on doing those after, Freedom Cry takes place after Edward’s story is done while Aveline takes place after AC3.
  11. Onto my least favorite of the Adventure Worlds in Lego Dimensions, Sonic the Hedgehog. Love Sonic, his world is just tedious to do since 80% of the races are Sonic races and the environment is not forgiving and one gold brick requires collecting a bunch of studs in the special stage zone and that’s pure luck base if you get the correct number.
  12. AC4 surprised me with how fun it was since I thought it would be just okay. You should also try Rogue since it’s got very similar mechanics, though it takes til halfway through the story to actually get a ship. I can’t tell you about Unity, Syndicate, Origins or Odyssey since I’ve yet to play them. Are you doing the DLC stories like Aveline and Freedom Cry?
  13. Read Volumes 1 & 2 of Go Go Power Rangers. Very different from the main Mighty Morphin series since this is more character driven versus action driven. I love how they give more personality to the Rangers, the villains and even the side characters since the show is very basic characterization wise. It’s nice seeing the backstory stuff showing moments before Rita is released like when Kimberly first moved to Angel Grove, a noodle incident involving Kimberly and Zack that later gets shown, Rita conquering worlds and being disgusted that on Squatt’s world his parents gave him up as an offering to spare their people (who knew Rita had a soft spot?) and the fact that Billy and Skull used to be friends. It was also nice seeing a nice side to Bulk and Skull for once since they are always being bullies or jokes for the audience. Because Issue 9 is the start of the Shattered Grid crossover event that meant Issue 8 ends with the appearance of the Ranger Slayer so there might not be any regular backstory stuff for Volume 3. One thing I did find weird was the cover gallery. The first 4 issues skipped the character spotlight covers but 5-8 included them so it’s weird to have a spotlight for Kimberly, Bulk, Skull and Matt but not the other rangers. Can’t wait to get the Shattered Grid issues contained in Go Go 3, Mighty Morphin 7 & 8 and Lost Chronicles 2.
  14. Has anyone put a book down, either during the reading or after finishing, because something in the pages you just read was a little much for you to continue going at that moment? So far I have two. The first was a couple different moments from A Game of Thrones. I’m currently on my second which is Fairest by Marissa Meyer. When reading the other Lunar Chronicles books you know Levana was married to a guy named Evret and that she loved him very much. Hoo boy it’s worse than that since she’s manipulating him, brainwashing him, wearing his recently deceased wife’s face and forcing him to sleep with her (if you catch my meaning here) and that’s before she marries him. I’m at the point where she’s broken him down enough to force him into the marriage and it only took her a couple weeks to do it. This book was written so that readers could understand and feel sympathy for Levana but it’s made me more horrified of her if that’s how she treated the only person to show her kindness. Oh and during all these scenes she’s 16 so she’s a devil child as well. I’m going to keep reading this book (it’s only 222 pages and I’m literally halfway) since I want to know what happens to her sister Channery and her death, how she went through with trying to kill her niece and how she started as queen.
  15. Not necessarily bad for me but for when the superintendent gets the loss/damage reports of the campuses. The cheapest is about $200, the next two are just under $1000 and just a few dollars in difference while the final campus has a total over $5000! This is the most expensive year yet! What actually makes this funny is that my direct boss/supervisor has been trying to get a reason to have one of our people fired and he’s the one with the smallest loss while her favorites are the two $1000 spenders.
  16. Finished watching season 3 of Escape the Night. It was a fun one with a bunch of Youtubers I actually know about (Rosanna, Matpat, Safiya, Colleen and Guava Juice) though I wasn’t happy with who gets all the way to the end. Manny and Nikita got on my nerves between Manny’s ‘Okay we get it, you’re gay’ way of acting (I’m okay with LGBT but the way he was doing it got pretty annoying considering about half the cast in all three seasons is somewhere on the LGBT spectrum and he’s the only one to keep showing it off like being gay is going out of style while everyone else tends to bring it up only when it’s pertinent or for a joke between themselves) and Nikita’s general mean girl shtick along with calling everyone a slontze which got old by the end of episode 1 and considering she survives the night shows how unfun she was.
  17. Almost done with Lego Dimensions, just doing the Adventure Worlds stuff. Since this is my second play through I wanted to do something fun, going to the worlds in chronological order of when they were released. Here’s the order: DC Comics (1937 when Batman showed up), Wizard of Oz (1939 since they used the film), Doctor Who (1963), Scooby-Doo (1969), ET (June 82), Knight Rider September 82), A-Team (83), Ghostbusters (June 84), Gremlins (June 84), Goonies (June 85), Back to the Future (July 85), Midway Arcade (1988 but I have no clue when they opened so I’m not sure if they opened before the next one), Beetlejuice (March 88), The Simpsons (89), Sonic (91 used the first game release date), Jurassic Park (93 technically Jurassic World but the franchise starts with the original so I used that for placement), Mission: Impossible (96), Powerpuff Girls (98 technically the new version but I think it’s more an update than a reboot so original show premiere here), Harry Potter (November 01 film version), Lord of the Rings (December 01 film release), Adventure Time (10), Ninjago (January 11), Portal 2 (April 11 had considered using the original but they made a point of using the 2), Chima, (January 13) Lego City Undercover (March 13), Teen Titans Go (April 13), The Lego Movie (14), Ghostbusters (July 16), Fantastic Beasts (November 16), Lego Batman Movie (17). I find it funny how it starts and ends with Batman and how two worlds had the exact same date.
  18. Just finished Season 2 of Escape the Night. This was a surprisingly fun romp considering the only people I had watched stuff for were Tyler and Jesse. I felt so bad for Tyler and Liza when they had to do the Gingerbread Woman challenge where they had to eat a bunch of candy and desserts, first by eating everything that was red, followed by everything square and finally eat a whole cake. That was nauseating to watch since I doubt I’d win that. Season 3 here I come! This has a bunch of Youtuber’s I’ve actually watched stuff from from Safiya to Rosanna and MatPat
  19. How bout this: it’s a romance with incidental music sprinkled in set in a what if world
  20. Not a biopic either since it’s not really about anyone real
  21. Doing a watch of Joey Graceffa’s Escape the Night since the first three seasons are being shown for free to promote the new season coming soon. Only on season 1 with 1 episode to go. Can’t believe how the other Youtubers treated Justine when she’s getting ‘eliminated’ since the only person who showed compassion was Joey.
  22. Well it’s not exactly a musical since no one breaks out in song, it’s just done like someone would in real life when you’re singing a song you remember. But yes, this is a take it or leave it film since it’s pretty average despite the gimmick.
  23. Saw Yesterday yesterday. It’s okay, definitely a one and done film since I wouldn’t go out of my way to get it on dvd. The best way to describe this movie is that it seemed like they wanted to make a romance but they wanted a gimmick and chose ‘what if the Beatles never formed’. They did include the fact that if you erase one thing from history other things have to be erased as well, because of influence, but some of the ones chosen seemed arbitrary because a couple were around before the Beatles (coke and cigarettes) while one I have no clue what connection it would have (Harry Potter).
  24. I hope you mean coke as in soda as a whole and not the single beverage known as coke. It’s not exactly a nauseous feeling, just more that blah feeling when you’re not feeling great but you’re not feeling sick/nauseous/pukey. I think the closest might be more like how those with celiac and lactose intolerance describe the feeling when they don’t get gas. Edit: Okay I did a little bit of research. I’m wondering if it’s a minor HFCS/corn intolerance since, of the many symptoms for intolerance, the ones I get afterwards are migraines and tingling in the mouth. For the longest time I thought the tingling was a normal reaction to drinking soda but after I’ve done International ones like Ramune, a few British ones and even American sodas with real sugar, I didn’t get that tingling feeling. I think it’s a minor one because I don’t get the symptoms after eating regular corn based products (cornbread, corn tortillas, etc) nor with stuff made with corn syrup. Because it’s specifically called high fructose corn syrup and not corn syrup I wonder if it’s just a more concentrated form of corn and that’s affecting me when I have it. Not sure what else has HFCS and I can’t think of any other foodstuffs that does that to me.
  25. No, I felt that way even when I used to drink it all the time. I’m also not one of those who’ll chug the whole thing so I’m taking my time to drink it, yesterday I had one of those 16 oz coke’s (I hate coke but I thought it was the revival New Coke which I wanted to try but it was just regular Coke) and I was sipping it over the course of 1 1/2-2 hours and I was drinking a cup of unsweet tea as well. I also still get sugar through candy and dessert items like cookies, though I’m not eating them every single day or I’m pairing them with tea in the evening. To show how different it affects me I had a brownie sundae the other day, which would be full of sugar because of the chocolate and ice cream, and I felt fine but after that one can of Coke I felt terrible.
