Was arguing with my cow orker today, and called him a drunkard.  CoH has been on my mind with the new news...  and well, one thing led to another..


Glad to see you've kept the lights on!

  Penguin Highway
Posted by: robkelk - 10 hours ago - Forum: General Chatter - Replies (1)

Epsilon got me to go see Penguin Highway today. (It's playing in Ottawa all weekend.) It was a good movie, and slightly surreal in places.

The movie opens with penguins in a field. In Japan.

Our Hero is in 4th grade, and is the son of a scientist. When he tries to solve the mystery of "why were there penguins in a field in Japan?", things become downright odd.

I suppose I could spoil the movie for folks, ... but, no, this is a movie you should go see before learning anything about the plot.

There's one translator-induced error in it, though:

But if you listen to the original voices, you can eventually ignore that.

Go see the movie if you can.

So, dunno what news the old CoH crew has been following, but it seems the Hellions in Atlas Park might soon be getting a visit from a telekinetic catgirl archer again...

  Trump's Legal Team Tries to Bully Accounting Firm

He really doesn't want people to know what's going on with his money.  Too bad - that's not a right you're entitled to when you take on a job that demands absolute transparency where otherwise mandated by national security.

  Florida Woman Infatuated with Racist Killers Shuts Down Denver Schools
Posted by: SilverFang01 - 04-17-2019, 11:37 AM - Forum: Politics and Other Fun - Replies (2)

[Trigger Warning]
I believe there are a couple of members that were at Columbine so this can be upsetting.


So, a Florida woman infatuated with the Columbine murderers hopped on a plane, landed in Denver, and bought a shotgun with the intention of recreating Columbine.

Hundreds of Denver Schools Are Closed as F.B.I. Seeks Woman ‘Infatuated’ With Columbine

There is a manhunt on the way and hopefully they will catch her before tragedy strikes.

This is our country today, and nothing will be done because it may upset some GI Joe wannabe.

  Youtube Video Embeds Not Working Properly

The videos will embed...  But they won't play for me afterwards.  Is this limited to me or is anyone else having this problem?

  Flip Flappers AMV "Mad Hatter"
Posted by: Black Aeronaut - 04-16-2019, 01:21 PM - Forum: Anime Music Videos - Replies (2)

Flip Flappers.

Wooooo.

Take Radical Edward from Cowboy Bebop.  Make her cuter.

YES.  CUTER.

Then have her go and turn a perfectly ordinary girl's life completely upside-down and inside-out with her dimension-jumping antics.  But she can't help but love this adorable little lunatic because really, as crazy as she is, she's a sweetheart.

Mix with Mad Hatter by Melanie Martinez (shaken, not stirred) and serve with high explosives.

Enjoy!

  Daria Cohen's "Vampair Series" (and a live action bonus)
Posted by: classicdrogn - 04-16-2019, 11:04 AM - Forum: Anime Music Videos - No Replies

Most memorable to me for Pt. 3, "The Resurrection (AKA Fuck You)" it's a series of original music and animation shorts, but that still counts for this sub-forum, right? Besides, they're amazing.

Correction: The animation is original, the music is by other people, two by Voltaire since he makes such a fine voice for the antagonist character. (That's the musician Aurelius Voltaire, obviously, not the philosopher.)

I'm posting a link to the first video in the playlist rather than the separate ones, as pt.4 is new since I last thought to check on it and the interstitial shorts are easy to miss. This way it'll automatically be as up to date as can be.

Wonder Links power, activate!

Now, what made me think to look them up again was this little metal-opera gem, which while entirely different in style and tone still echoes similar themes:

  Lynn's Rec Room Projects
Posted by: LynnInDenver - 04-15-2019, 08:25 PM - Forum: General Chatter - Replies (11)

So, over 3 years after we moved into the house, I finally was able to get two projects firmly off the ground and into a playable state.

   

First, our new virtual pinball build, Radiant Silverball. Hundreds of pinball tables are at our fingertips, at least digitally. I based it in part on the vintage pinball machine we already had. Part of why it exists is that we only have room for two pinball machines.

   

Second is our MAME machine, Legacy of the Stick. A fairly streamlined four-player machine, streamlined as in it's just for joystick games. I really don't like how layouts feel shoehorned/compromised when the trackball and/or spinner is included in these builds. I'll probably build a dedicated "bartop" for those games later on. We also have a party trick to this setup - the monitor can ROTATE. It's a 40" screen, so you can kind of picture how big Punch Out is (yes, it does show the correct over/under).

And with this, our rec room is officially out of room for more stuff.

This does not look good at all.
