Too bad about the dog, but they are pretty resilient, my beagle got attacked by something, I believe the neighbor's dog, and she was bleeding quite badly. I kept it clean and bandaged for a couple of days and she was good to go.

Wow, I try not to have so many projects going at once, it just stresses me out. When I used to customize action figures. I'd stay awake for hours till it was done, or to a point where I couldn't go on. I ike things done and not waiting to be done, but that's just part of the ADD. LOL

Our dog is getting old - 10 years - and he's been favoring that leg for a long time because his hip is arthritic. The Shepherd in him gave him that weakness. He's had a problem with a ligament before (neighbor dogs, too) and it seems like it took him about a week or two before he was moving around okay, but that was before his arthritis got very severe.

With the project thing, I'd only do one at a time. I was just itemizing what's on my "Dream List." :lol: The Herc project is the only one that I'm a ways into.

What's interesting (pathetic?) is that I'm an admin on a Scale RC site and I've been out of the loop on a lot of this stuff. I get into a certain area of focus and ignore a lot of the others, like the Axial rigs and some of the other new ones, and RCWTF has been going halls balls on bringing in new stuff from the Land of Mao that I've never ever paid attention to. :blink: I need to get with the program.

I'm thinking I'll get the motors I need next. I'd like to get them as soon as I'm able. I already have the shocks I wanted, but they may be more than I need. I have some Losi Baja/Aftershock dampers - monstrously huge! - but the Herc may not need that kind of suspension travel, so I'm thinking Muggy shocks would be sufficient. I'd defer the Baja dampers I already have to the race MT project.

By the way, I just finished watching "Up". That was a very, VERY strange movie. I think I liked it, but I'm not sure. I thought I liked "The Incredibles" after I watched it the first time, but later decided it was rather banal.

I haven't seen up yet. I want to but haven't yet. My kids want to want aliens in the attic this weekend. As far as the Incredibles go. I liked it but it is a movie you can only watch once maybe twice or it gets annoyingly awful.

I just read they are doing a remake of the Clash of the Titans for a 2010 release. It's suppose to be more action packed and drama filled than the original, and I'm just going to guess the creatures will be CGI not Harry Hausen stop animation. Sounds pretty c ool.

Ragnarok
11-12-2009, 12:08 AM
It wouldn't take a lot to make it better that the original. :lol: The Harryhausen animation is what really sold it. The new one could be pretty good, at least one would hope based on the cast announced so-far.

What really burns my toast is Roger Corman, the Godfather of Crap-Cinema, will be getting a lifetime achievement award at the Oscars this coming year. Why? :mad: He's been torturing people for the last 50 or 60 years with the worst running catalog of MST3k fodder of any director. His version of Asimov's "Nightfall" (starring David "Hung Fu" Carridine no less) should have earned him a cigarette and a blindfold in front of a firing squad, or as I would call it a "mercy brigade". <_<

None I've seen been worth buying as of late. My wife watched The Ugly Truth last night, it was the typical romantic comedy, but Gerard Butler had some funny lines.

Ragnarok
11-13-2009, 10:20 AM
Butler's an interesting actor. His dual-role in "Mim's Island" was kind of interesting. Jodie Foster's character was actually the most intriguing. :lol: The "Home Alone" inspired sequences in the movie sucked, though.

I loathe romantic comedies. The closest thing to a RomCom I own is "Joe Somebody." I'd prefer to call it a pseudo-romantic comedy. Tim Allen did a really good job in that one. I'd like to see him do more serious parts, because there were enough serious parts in that movie to convince me he's a strong enough actor do pull it off. Supposedly he did for a David Mammet film not long ago, but I can't remember the title, and David Mammet's work (what very little of it I've been exposed to) is not my style. :huh:

SOrry to hear about the wet weather Joker,

Mim's island was decent, I liked Foster's OCD, to funny.

The trouble with RomComs is they are all the same essentially, I've seen to many to name as I gotta keep the Mrs. Happy. But it's always boy and girl meet,usually hate each other, or fal in love instantly, something so bizarre happens and breaks them up, then boy does something so romantic the girl can't help admit she's loves him.

Ragnarok
11-13-2009, 09:36 PM
Most of it's actually stuff for the folks - very little of it is mine. Actually, at this point it isn't finalized. So far there's a DTV converter box, a couple of books, "Craft in America" DVD (actually very interesting if you've ever seen it on PBS), "An American Christmas Carol" DVD (also very interesting - totally different take on the whole thing)…none of which is mine.

So far all I have in my cart for myself is "Akira" on Blu-Ray. I saw it once on the Sci-Fi channel about ten years ago, and while I'm an Animé-phobe, this really intrigued me. (The music floored me!) The only animé I own is "Princess Mononoke", and that's a fascinating film from simply the angle of its story telling. In the end there is no antagonist. :huh: I'm anxious for it to be released on Blu-Ray.

I thought I'd try to find the Within Temptation concert on Blu-Ray only to discover it's out of print and insanely overpriced from "collectors". I don't want it that bad - sheesh. I thought about getting "Pan's Labyrinth", "The Fountain" and "Dark City" since I'm kind of in a dark and introspective mood. The last two have major price-cuts from Amazon at the moment, so I may jump on them.

First let's start wit the fact that Cusack couldn't pull off an action movie to save his life, then throw in all of the religious undertones, and the cult following that 2012 might actually happen (Y2K) anyone.... that's not something I care to ever see. Now District 9 I do want to see, along with the fourth kind., I watched Gi JOe last night, now from an entertainment point of view I loved it, if you are a die hard cry because it's not continuity to the original story, then you might not like it. However I was seriously into GiJOe as a Kid and loved the Cheez-riffic cartoon completely, and I completely enjoyed the Movie as well.

Yeah, I don't get the "when the Mayan calendar ends, the world does too" crap. There are enough real-world problems to worry about to be making new ones up. The Mayans would probably do like we do at the end of every year - get a new calendar. Maybe they could get the cute kitten and puppy one, or one full of hot-rods? I'd get the hot-rod one myself.

Plus, if they were so omniscient and all-knowing…why aren't they still around?

By the way, the inept ambulatory Eurotrash cigar-delivery apparatus also known as Roland Emmerich stated that he wants to make two more "Independence Day" movies. That horse has no need of being beaten further.

Independence Day had it's moments but how come we as a race are so fearful of aliens when all that it takes is a simple computer virus or a glass of water. Now speaking of Aliens and Signs, Why would an alien race who's only weakness is water come to a planet where 75% is covered with it?? WTH??

Ragnarok
11-15-2009, 10:37 PM
Speaking of wading through BS, I just spent the better part of today doing family tech support for my niece's new laptop that wouldn't connect to a wireless home network. It's not that I minded doing it, it's just the hurdles I had to jump in order to get it working was mind-numbing. Everything looked great from the computer side and everything looked great from the router side, but for whatever reason they would not work together.

I finally had to go around the internal b/g wireless and use a USB n-type adapter. There was no driver for it, so I had to use a second computer that was making nice with the network to acquire it online, download it, transfer it via USB drive and then make it work. Kind of a kludge, but it's running. The thing I didn't like was this "home sharing" deal that became apparent afterward. One of those new Windows 7 "features"? Now my brother-in-law's entire file library from all of the computers in their house shows up on my niece's computer. :pcrage: One problem at a time, I guess.

No elitism intended, but you guys can take this anyway you want: I'm so glad to be back to my Mac. :huh: This seals the deal on my decision on my next computer. I have a nephew that's an aspiring musician (in reality he's a killer electric guitarist that wants to write his own material) and he's drooling over the newest-gen iMacs just like I am, so if he and I take the same route, any collaboration between us and my ability to help with technical problems will be INFINITELY easier. :nice:

The Stray Cat
11-16-2009, 07:13 AM
Well the family share thing is definitely a good thing to know about ahead of time, I'm thinking about getting a MAC for myself and then upgrading my current PC to WIndows 7 for my kids, they don't do muc other than play games and art stuff with photos and that.

Ragnarok
11-16-2009, 08:44 AM
I can see where the automatic file sharing is hunky-dory if someone needed to access all computers from any one arbitrary computer in the house, like in the case of a home theater setup. The whole thing has 128-bit encryption, so security isn't something to worry about all the time (just some of the time). But it would seem to me the possibility of files getting lost, renamed or just generally messed up from another user in the home network way too high, especially from a youngster or a computer newbie. One virus could cripple everyone's rig. I don't dig that. I know there's a way to shut it off (know? - I assume) so I don't believe that it's a complete deal-breaker. I'm going to have to research it a little bit to find out how to shut it down before I go back to finalize her setup. :nice:

What little of it I did spend with it, I can say that Windows 7 was okay. A lot of it still smelled like Vista. I so much prefer the Mac OS even yet, so it certainly hasn't changed my mind. It's what I'm used to, it's easy for me to navigate intuitively and I like the way the OS looks. I would definitely argue that it's superior for certain things, ie audio and music. (If not superior in those areas, at least more consistently trouble-free.) Gaming is still its biggest Achilles' Heel, though. But, one can get easily remedy that by using either Parallels or Boot Camp and run whatever flavor of Windows that's preferred and Call of Duty yourself stupid. :lol:

The Stray Cat
11-16-2009, 09:25 AM
I'm not against WIndows or anything either, I used MACs at my last job and when I was in college and I think I'd like to go back there. I need to keep the Windows on the other PC for my kids and of course my beautiful technologically challenged wife.:crazy:

Three bullet points of my life for today

35% of "Akira" is a non-sequitur and was harder to follow than "Eraserhead."
It's been a cold sumbich today. -20°F, which is about 30° colder than normal this time of year (according to the weatherladyperson on the telebizzin).
Clients can be cruel, irrational and completely disconnected with the real world, and there's nothing that can be done to remedy it. :(

11-18-2009, 08:24 AM
In reply to your 3 bullet points:
Yes Akira is hard to follow
daang that's fargin cold bro! we haven't had temps that cold in a few years
I know from working in sales inside and outthat clients and customers, most do not have any understanding of what is really involved and can be extremely difficult to deal with.

On a happier note it's almost Thanksgiving... Turkey, pumpkin pie, corn, pumpkin pie, mashed taters, pumpkin pie....

Ragnarok
11-18-2009, 09:22 AM
I should admit that the first and only time I saw "Akira" was a highly edited version suitable for TV (SciFi Channel) and I didn't see all of it. :blink: Seeing it unedited and without interruption made it a very different film. Makes me wonder about some of the other "epic anime" films, like "Ghost in the Shell." :thinking:

The temps aren't expected to get better until this weekend, and it won't be by much. Until then we're being warned of high winds for this morning, so I gotta get ready for wind chills of -50°F. :mad:

The last thing there, what complicates things is this "client" is also a friend. Having her turn on me without provocation or rational thought makes it even more difficult to deal with. She's a carver and I build the boxes she uses to carve upon. She owes me a lot of money, and I have never ever badgered her for it. It's more important that she get my product so she can sustain herself and pay me when she's able. (It's a very long story, and I really don't feel like telling it.)

I have a nice stack of new movies to watch, though, so maybe I can kill the feelings of betrayal for a while. I've only watched "Akira" and I think I'll tackle "Pan's Labyrinth" tonight.

As a post-script, my guitarist-nephew of mine sent me an e-mail last night ('round 1.30AM) that he just got one of the new iMacs. LUCKY! :blink: I don't know which model he got, but he sounds totally stoked. His only exposure to Apples was in school, and that was a while ago because he's been home-schooled for the last three years. (I think he's a junior in HS now.) He got burned out on PCs with his HP dv7z laptop. We tried to get the thing optimized for his guitar rig for two whole days and it was one monster headache after another. He had way too much bloatware on it (most of it actually came with the computer), it was underpowered (some flavor of low-speed AMD Athlon mobile chip) and a completely sucktacular FireWire port. The only thing that worked most of the time was his guitar amp simulator in stand-alone mode.

With this fall-out with my client I may not be able to make my goal of getting a new machine before the end of the year. I have other jobs that I can work on, but this was a significant part of my new 'puter plan. <_<

Anyway have you seen Pan's Labrynth yet? That is one wild cool flick.

Ragnarok
11-18-2009, 09:52 AM
Well, there's really nothing personal involved in the sense of fraternization. A) She's not my type (for too many reasons) and B) she's about 20-years older than me. The friendship angle is that I've been doing this for her for the better part of 10 years and we're both artists, so we have a common goal. I'm her sole reliable source for her art (she's also a painter). I have been very lenient in regard to when she pays me. The thing is I've always been paid, even if it's late. It seems in this whole mess that this is the issue. It's so painful because it came from nowhere and I'm not sure it's going to get resolved, let alone how to solve it. I really don't want to talk about it further. Getting this out on a public forum may not serve my side of the argument. :thinking:

"Pan's Labyrith" will be new to me. I haven't seen it before. In fact I haven't seen any of the movies I purchased before (save "Akira" and that was only partially).

The Stray Cat
11-18-2009, 10:08 AM
I think you'll enjoy Pan's Labrynth. Just one word of advice, it is nothing like you are expecting, but in a good way! Plus the visual effects are stunning. I'll be watching "The Taking of Pelham 123" this weekend, no a big travolta or denzel fan but the movie looks pretty good.

Ragnarok
11-18-2009, 03:31 PM
Yeah, I'm looking forward to it, even though it looks like in my previous post I didn't spell it right. :lol: (I forgot the 'n'.)

Denzel and Travolta can both very good actors, but like most things it depends on the writers, subject and context of whatever they're doing. DW did a fairly good job in "Man on Fire", and it's probably the only time Dakota Fanning's banshee-with-ruptured-hemorrhoids-shriek has ever been appropriate (she completely ruined "War of the Worlds").

I'm taking a halfway-through-PL break, and man is it weird. Watching the guy get his face smashed until his the front of his head caves in was pretty graphic. One thing so far is I can see a similar pattern from other Del Toro films I've seen: the theme of gears (in the mill and El Capitan's watch, like all those gears in Rasputin's hideout under the cemetary and the self-mutilizing Nazi's breast plate in HB1, as well as the lost Elvish city and the Golden Army Decepti-eggs in HB2), the circular maze at the base of that monolith sculpture (like the blood maze dealie in the first Hell Boy from which Rasputin emerges)…and Doug Jones. :lol:

Doug Jones is one bizarre, yet fascinating actor. His portrayal of the Angel of Death in "Hell Boy 2" was as freaky as it was awesome. So far, his Faun character is unsettlingly menacing.

I'm at the part where Ofelia has entered the door she drew on the wall and sees the weird, wrinkly, eyeless dude (I think it's Doug Jones, too) is sitting at the able with his peepers in a plate.

Well, I'm still digesting it. Probably a bad choice of words considering my previous comment. The movie made very little sense when it ended. I watched Guillermo "explain himself" in one of the featurettes and it became a lot clearer. The question I have is this: which was the fairy tale and which was the reality? Was the continuing war with the Socialists vs. the Fascists and Ofelia's sick mother the fairy tale? When they intersected it made it even more unclear.

One thing Guillermo said was that fairy tales are very simple and very brutal. That's certainly true ("The Gingerbread Man", "Jack and the Beanstalk", and "Hansel und Gretel" come to mind) and there was no shortage of the brutality. The villager getting his face crushed by getting hammered repeatedly with the end of a bottle was actually more than I could handle. (In spite of the fact the "stunt head" acted a little too rubbery as his nose was smashed to the back of his head.) The poor stutterer, the way he was beaten and broken was horrible, too. However, I clinched my fist with a "Yes!" in vindication when Mercedes skewered Capn' Vidal and gave him a Heath Ledger smile, and also when the guerillas had him surrounded, took his son, refused his last request and shot him in the face. "Take that, you bastige!"

The brutality in the fantasy world was rather extreme, too. The toad vomiting himself almost inside out was a little gross, but no worse than the crap those Sam'mael demons were up to in "Hell Boy". The Pale Man was the worst, though. I hated to see those two faeries go so horribly. But it was clear early on the real monster was the Captain. Seeing him murder Ofelia was something I didn't really expect. I wonder how a child actor can participate in a film like this and not be affected in their real life in a negative manner. :thinking:

I did understand the underlying theme of free will, obedience and disobedience. I was relieved to see that Faun was not the potential menace he kind of let on that he was. He was simply testing Ofelia's determination and will. Every time I see Doug Jones do one of his heavy-prosthetic performances I'm blown away. He's the new Lon Chaney Sr.

I may watch it again on my next day off. It's not the kind of movie I would normally watch in repeated succession, but I might with this one. Probably "Akira", too. That one was a total head-trip. It felt so much like "Blade Runner", only BR was a lot easier to follow. I made one weird choice of movies this time. I think all of them that I bought are going to be "What the dang did I just watch?" kind of films. I think next time I'm just going to get a couple of Stallone films and leave it at that. :lol:

If anyone wants to see something that leaves them with a bizarre feeling of cognitive dissonance, I highly recommend, "Strings." I'm not saying anything about it. If you can rent it or find it on Netflix or whatever, see it. I purchased it without having seen it first. It's something that won't leave you for a long time. Not that it's the best movie ever made (far from it) but the presentation and the whole "world" that the story is based upon is unlike anything I've ever seen.

Well I loved when the Captain got his Joker face, then the bastage sewn it back up crazyy. I wasn't sure exactly what part of the storey was the real and which was the fantasy either, but del toro is one dude with a wide open vision of expression. The Orphange was another far out there film did you see that one?

I often have had that discussion with my wife, after watching "The Orphan" My wife and I were discussing the impact on the child actor's life. So many of them doing comedies and tv shows end up on drugs and prostitution and all that, I can't imagine the effect of these movies on a kid.

Naw, the only GTD movies I've seen would be the two Hell Boy flicks and this one. Of the two Hell Boy movies I vastly preferred the second one. The villain was very compelling as madness and anger were somewhat easy to empathize with, yet he was still the bad guy. It was rathe tragic villainy especially based on the consequences of what would happen when he's killed. The theme in that film I felt was that the Real World and the Fantasy Realm were completely incompatible - they couldn't co-exist. One had to destroy the other. Mutants and demon-men like Abe and Heck Guy, respectively, sort of walked the ground of both. Where do they fit in? All very strange and thought-provoking stuff.

I can definitely see why New Line is having Guy direct The Hobbit films. :nice: I think he could pull it off. However, I've said it before and I'll say it again…SMAUG MUST BE AWESOME!!! :mad:

I should mention that those high winds never hit. In fact, the day before yesterday, it got up to +2°F - it almost felt livable. :huh: Either I mis-heard the weather failcaster or their prediction was completely wrong. There's a high probability of both.

I'm going to try "Dark City" tonight. It's directed by the same guy that did "I, Robot" - the only good interpretation of an Asimov novel-to-film, and probably my least-disliked Will Smith movie - so I'm kind of looking forward to it. (Plus, Jennifer Connelly's in it. :wub:)

Last night was diverted by a serious family emergency so I didn't get to continue my "New Movie Marathon." My brother-in-law had to be driven to a hospital in Anchorage. His blood pressure was something like 200/160. He's in the Air Force, and they don't seem to believe anything is wrong with him in spite of abnormal abdominal swelling, violent vomiting and nausea, delirium, fainting, excessive nerve damage in his lower extremities, and some inexplicable high arsenic levels in his blood. He's been sick ever since he moved up to AK and no one, save one doctor on base, seems to care. He's a nurse himself, which makes it even more baffling why they won't help him. :nono:

Regarding my BIL, I haven't heard anything since 1:30 this morning, so I don't know what his status is. He's the type of guy that can whine and complain with the best, but they still ignore him. There have been many allegations of other abuse/neglect/death of servicemen there due to the low or no concern of higher-ups. It's maddening. It would probably take a congressional investigation to get anything done, and even then I doubt the Whores of the Potomac would bother.

Regarding the movie, I'll have a review tonight or in the morning, depending on how late it is when I'm through with it. :nice: What little I know about it, it kind of sounds like it might be a "Blade Runner" meets "Metropolis" thriller/mystery.

I'm 38 minutes into "Dark City." Weird as @#*$. My first impression? If David Lynch had been the director of both "Blade Runner" and "The Matrix" instead of Ridley Scott and the Brothers Wachowski…and then merged the two films into some kind of two-headed circus freak. :blink:

There's been some nudity, which I neither knew about nor needed to see. Some guy's bare fanny is flapping in the breeze as he wakes from a state of unconsciousness out of a bathtub. Also, the bare breast of a dead prostitute, and two-of-a-kind on a very-much alive one. My hope is that there isn't any more of that. I try to avoid stuff like this when I watch/buy a movie.

Oh yeah, I'm also aware of the nudititty in "Akira", but like that which was seen in the latest "Rambo" film, it's in the context of an act of violence. I think that anyone that gets aroused by that kind of thing needs professional help.

The Stray Cat
11-20-2009, 10:42 PM
I have nothing against nudity in movies if it flows with the movie or is needed to tell part of the story. But I hate the vagrant flashes of skin in movies for the mere fact of including it.

Anyway I watched "Taking of Pelham 123" I must say I was pleasantly surprised it was actually a decent flick. the very end gets dragged on a little but nothing to the point of Meagan Fox running with her breasts bouncing in the end of TF ROTF.

Naw, I have a set of rules I go by. Violence - okay within reason. Strong language - as long as that's not 100% of the dialog. <cough-Gran Turino-cough> Nudity - I really don't need to see it. It's the way I've been brought up.

11-20-2009, 11:00 PM
Well with most of the movies I watch I get none of the above. Most Fantasy and Sci FI flicks don't have any of that except maybe the occassional cuss and well rehearsed violence.

Ragnarok
11-21-2009, 12:28 AM
I certainly prefer to avoid any profanity whatsoever, but my cuss-threshold isn't as severe as it used to be. And grotesquely brutal violence is something I can't tolerate, either. "Gladiator"-level is about as much as I care to watch.

Okay, well the nekked stuff was all close to the beginning of the movie, so it's all clear after the call-girl flashes her admittedly nice wares. Language was PG-level, actually. For an "R" rated film, that's a rarity. Violence and the grisly imagery is a tame "R".

The movie itself was definitely "Blade Runner" meets "The Matrix", with a heavy dash of David Lynch's version of "Dune." This actually came out a year or so before "The Matrix", so I doubt plagiarism is a factor. :nice: I didn't recognize a lot of the names other than a few actors, the director, one of the screen writers and the composer. Also, Patrick Tatopoulos was the production designer ("I, Robot" and most of the Devlin/Emmerich monstrosities, including the creature design for "Godzilla" in which he did a killer job) and it's gotta be some of the freakier stuff I've seen from him, and that includes the stuff he did for "I, Robot."

Bruce Spense is in it, too. He's kind of New Zealand's Ron Pearlman. He was in the third "Matrix" movie as the Trainman, that stripey-headed guy with the cane in "SW Episode III", a couple of the "Mad Max" movies, and "LotR: Return of the King" as The Mouth of Sauron. Typically creepy bad-dude in this one.

Also, Jennifer Connelly…what more can I say. :wub: <sigh> She's not emaciated like she was in "The Day the Earth Stood Still" or Ang Lee's abominable "The Hulk", or as I prefer to call it "Hulkback Mountain."

Certainly rent-worthy for someone who is curious what "David Lynch's Blade Matrix" might look like. :lol: It's trippy…real trippy. I'm not sure if I can handle any more psychotropic "what is reality and what isn't" bumper-car rides. I still have one more to go - "The Fountain." :huh: From what I've read it sounds like a 40-car pileup between "Somewhere in Time" and "2001: A Space Odyssey."

Yeah, "UP" is a very different film. I was really surprised. I halfway expected "Mary Poppins" meets "The Odd Couple." Not in the slightest. :nice: I think RockEd Out n' I discussed it a couple of pages back. A little more action than Pixar's last movie, "Ratatouille", but they're similar in regards to the atypical amount of emotional depth. I'd say "UP" is a deeper film, and certainly more violent.

I don't have any opinion on the new "Ice Age" flick. I saw the first two, and they didn't impress me a lot, so I thought I'd just skip the third. I'm an adult, and a bit of a curmudgeonous one, so that's a factor in my opinion. :lol: The kids may enjoy it completely, though.

Speaking of Christmas, I'm going to attempt a brief shopping run for a couple of family members this morning (I think). My mother is a huge fan of "Monk", so I'm trying to complete her DVD collection little-by-little, and I'm getting "Due South" for my brother in Soldotna. I have only been able to find it at Amazon, but found two copies at my local Fred Meyers last week. :blink: I hadn't seen them before because they have it filed in their music video section. :thinking: It was a TV show - what the dang?

I watched "The Fountain" Sunday morning. It's a very hard movie to follow. I'm not even sure how to classify it. There are three individual chronologies that intersect that is in reality one chronology. I think that it's definitely a 'romance' but in a completely unconventional way. This ain't no stupid "Doilies, Bon-Bons n' Cognac" romance movie, like "The Prince of Tides" or "The Britches of Madison County." It has a psychological/emotional/spiritual factor that is the common thread that isn't clear until the last two minutes of the movie.

Even though it's PG-13, I would recommend the kids stay away from this, mainly due to it's seemingly incomprehensible plot and very strange visuals. The violence/sex/language summary is this: there is some violence during the "Conquistador" sequences, there is a pretty late-night cable kiss with some making out in a bathtub but nothing explicit, and the language is typical PG-13 with one F-word thrown in. It's not a word I like to hear, but it was more appropriate than Megan Fox's F-bomb in TF2. (I guess I just don't like Megantron. :( :lol:)

The acting is incredible, too.

You guys are both still young give it another ten years and it'll seem like it's new years, summer, then xmas, the years go faster and faster every year I get older.

My opinion on decorative soaps is they are absolutely pointless. My wife is trained well or maybe she just accepts my oddities not sure which, but I don't spend money on gifts for her that have no use or practical purpose.
It's nice because she doesn't expect flowers because $25-$80 for something that'll be dead in 3 days is just impractical and decorative soaps are along those same lines, they'll sit holding down the toilet for a while until they are crusted with dust and soap scum, maybe some opver spray hair gel then go into the trash. POINTLESS!

The Bachelor of course!, We had to promise his bride to be that we wouldn't get strippers or anything like that, and since I was already married strippers weren't really my forte, so we did the cake to substitute the traditional stripper thing at bachelor parties.

By the way here's some good advice for you unmarried guys. Do not go to or get strippers or let your friends get strippers for your Bachelor party, I've seen way to many situations like this go terribly awry.

It's gonna get colder in the coming week. Similar temps to what we had last week. I could keep complaining about the cold, but sometimes just rolling with it seems to be less stress.

I should get back to getting ready to take off. Our pup has a date with the vet this morning. His foot/leg hasn't recovered much from whatever injured him. We would have taken him sooner, but we cant get him up in our van with a bad leg - he's too heavy to lift and he can't jump in there. We're borrowing my sister's Fusion this morning and that should be a ton easier for him.

Here's the deal. Our dog has severely injured the ligament that links the femur to the tibia. In people it's the ACL. I can't remember the name for it in dogs, but serves the same purpose. The only two options we have are to keep him from getting too excited (ie. no running or jumping) and put him on a new medicine regimen, or surgery. Surgery is $5,000. He's a 100lb., 10-year-old Shepherd/Husky mix and surgery is more than we could afford, and at that weight and age the repair might not be worth the time it takes for him to heal, especially if it were injured again. So keeping him safe, happy and well-cared for is all we can really do. He's starting to use the leg a little more than he did even a week ago, so that's an improvement. Scar tissue should help reinforce the ligament connection. It will limit movement, but at least it's some form of healing. If his other leg goes out on him while he's like this, he'd have to be euthanized. I don't even want to think about it. :( I've never known a dog like him.

The vet said that it's surprising that a dog of this size and breed has taken so long to develop this type of knee problem. 8 years is usually the norm for big dogs, and he's passed that by two. The vet went on to say that this condition is really bad with Labs. With their gross inbreeding for "super" show dogs, many of them develop it before they're 4.

This injury complicates our Thanksgiving plans. The original plan was to go to my sister's place for dinner, but our dog would have to travel in our van - which he can't do. If we had it here at our place, then my bro-in-law wouldn't be able to come because he's a borderline basket-case (not criticism - the guy is genuinely not well). The alternative would be for me to stick around and puppy-sit at the Batcave while everyone else heads to sis' place. I really wouldn't mind it as long as I still got to see some family pass through before they went back to Anchorage.

The Stray Cat
11-25-2009, 03:04 PM
Well the dog is only 100 pounds ride him on your lap like a baby RAG. :rolling:

Seriously, I guess since he's family ya got to take care of him. I know it sucks what the breeders do to these dogs for money. Now I have nothing against breeding animals but at least have some responsibilty and respect for the breed. poor Sheperds and labs are usually done in before they are 6 or 7.

Ragnarok
11-26-2009, 01:12 AM
Well, the BIL won out :rolleyes: :kick:, so we're going to go to their place. The only way we can go and keep an eye on our dog is get two of us to carefully lift him up into the van. Once he's in there he should be okay. The next challenge will be getting him out when we've returned home. <_<

Also it occurs to me that he'll be in there a long time with no bathroom breaks, so it makes it even worse. :mad: I want to see family, but not at the expense of our dog. If he didn't have such severe separation anxiety, we'd just leave him at home. :(

We'll just play it by ear, I guess. Hope everyone has a good Thanksgiving, by the way. :nice:

Im after a movie i watched as a kid though iv'e forgoten the name, it was about a car that cant be killed, (NOT CHRISTINE)

It was black, an all dirty, it was always parked outside of schools, an i think it manages to kidnap a young girl, the ending was the girl and her mother in a school bus, i think the car drove over a cliff but then comes back again???? thats all i remember of it really, any ideas?

BTW it was set in america....so thats a dirt black car, kidnaps/stalks people, woman in a schoolbus takes revenge.

I'm hittin' Amazon one more time. Trying to get some Christmas shopping done. Got something for mum n' pop, my little bro and a nephew. As for everyone else on "the list" I'm dead in the water.

I was going to pick up a couple more Blu-Rays for the heck of it, but I really can't find much I'm interested in. "Ink" is out but has a 3-to-5-week waiting period, and "District 9" and "9" won't be out for a while. I thought about getting the Anime curiosity out of my system and getting the "Ghost in the Shell" duology (is that even a word?) but I dunno. I'd kinda like some more MST3k stuff, but a lot of the shows I want on DVD aren't available yet. There's a guy at a place that does stuff where I could get them (recorded from the original cable TV broadcasts - and they're only shows that aren't available on home video), but that kind of thing rests in a gray area of legality. :thinking:

Speaking of gray areas and making odd parts fit, I'm looking at maybe trying to recoup some of my computer parts that I purchased before I changed my mind on what kind of computer I want/need. Thinking of going the Hackintosh route so I can utilize the parts I have and still work with the OS I prefer. So, I'm also tossing in a copy of Mac OS X Snow Leopard into my Amazon cart.

Let's see, what other recurring subject can I bring up… It snowed a lot yesterday afternoon and I spent 45 minutes digging the driveway out and I'm in a lot of pain as a result. It's about 30°F right now.

I really don't remember where I started with the synth/computer argument with myself. :lol: I think I originally wanted the computer first, then I decided I wanted to go with a workstation 'board before the computer, and now I'm back to wanting a computer + controller setup. With my current machine acting wonky I think that's the best way to go. Software-based instruments were going to be the majority of my "sound" anyways.

Here's kind of what I'm hoping to have my rig by this time next year:

53769

It's a top-down view of my music/design workstation and HTPC setup. A quick rundown of what's there, starting at the LCD and going clock-wise:


Dell 2008WFP 30" IPS-type LCD w/ 2560 x 1600 pixels, DVI-D/HDMI/VGA/Composite/Component/DisplayPort inputs. I have a Samsung ToC T260HD right now that's working fine, but the Dell is what I will end up with.
Logitech Z-2300 THX-rated 2.1 speaker set (sub is under the desk). Not a high-end monitor system, but these will do fine for rough auditioning.
Sony PlayStation 3. I forgot to put my external HD in the pic. :thinking:
Remotes for PS3 and (for some reason) my Samsung LCD. Unsure if the Dell has one.
Studiologic Numa Nano 88-key USB master controller with aftertouch. I had to draw this in Illustrator as I couldn't find a decent pic of the actual instrument other than an isometric view. It looks pretty okay. The control surfaces on top of it are a Novation ReMOTE ZeRO SL mkII and a Native Instruments KORE 2 controller.
The computer itself, which I'm proposing will be a Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD5 based, Core i7 950 3.06GHz quad-core CPU with 6GB DDR3 ram, two-to-four 1TB HDs, an LG 8X BD-RE drive, Nvidia GeForce GTS250 1GB graphics, and will be dual-boot (Windows 7 and Mac OS X). The case is a Thermaltake Armor + mid-tower. (It's collecting dust on the floor near my bookcase.)
On top of the tower, I have a pair of AKG K702 reference 'phones. I'll probably do the majority of my monitoring with these as regular studio monitors will be too loud for everyone in the immediate area. I own a set of AKG K240Ms right now, and they're starting to get shiny at the elbows.
Lastly, a Presonus Firestudio Mobile compact FireWire DAW audio interface. Kind of crudely drawn, but its dimensions are accurate.

I'll build the desk myself. I didn't mention the QWERTY keyboard and trackball. They'll be on a pull-out drawer. The illustration shows it pulled part-way out. I've also omitted my Korg TR-Rack synth module. I could probably stow it under my PS3 like I already do.

One reason I decided to go this way was to avoid the iMac + dedicated HDTV. With this rig, I get a machine that's more powerful than an iMac with better expansion potential, keep everything at one "altar", plus if something kacks on my I can fix it or replace it myself. Everything happens on one screen. The disadvantage, of course, is the screen size itself. 30" @ 2560 x 1600 pixels (max) is killer for studio and design work, but for movies it will be a little small unless I park myself somewhat close to it. I already do this with the 25.5" Samsung I own, so it won't be any more inconvenient than what I already have. :nice:

"He's not even the best drummer in the Beatles"!!!!!!!!!!!

Sweet jeebus rag that looks like a lot of cash sittin on that desk!!, i think its safe to say, if i ever upgrade my pc i can ask you for the how to's?? :lol:

Aside from that though thats defo a sweet looking work station!!! :drool: im surrounded by bits of paper, reciepts, bits of cardboard an a few classic american car mags :lol:
The hardware is only a percentage of the whole setup. The hardware alone is less than $7k, which is a pittance compared to even some of the most meager project studios. It's the software that will kill me. And, yeah, I doubt it will ever look this clean in real life. :lol:

Wow Rag, Nice looking setup, better not have kids ever because keeping things nice and tidy is almost impossible! But you have plenty of time for that right.
Kids at this point certainly aren't an issue. Being overweight seems to definitely be the best birth control. :( It's not a permanent thing, though. When I abdicate my position as the mayor of O.B. City, there might be a viable guy under there. I'd like to keep this in a separate room anyway, so kids wouldn't get to go in until they're old enough anyway. :nice: Actually, the one to worry about messin' the place up would be me! :lol:

So Joker what kind of classic american cars are your favorites?

Anything, im from the uk remember :lol: one's that pop to mind though.
-'69 Dodge Charger.
-'68 Camaro SS.
-'51 Mercury.
-'70 Chevrolet Chevelle.
-'69 Plymouth Roadrunner.
-'69 Dodge Coronet.
-'67 Pontiac GTO.
-'70 Oldsmobile 442.


There loads more but i cant think of them right now :lol:

When i worked at the body repair shop, i was fortunate to get a beautifull Blue '66 Mustang 2+2 fastback, it was in for a tiny little dent in the rear quarter, i held on to that fella for nearly a week :lol: I love american muscle cars with a passion, if i had the cash id'e own a fleet of nothing but them :chug:

Is this where you rub it in now an tell me you've owned some of these? :( :lol:
If I could interject, my oldest brother had two Roadrunners. I can't remember what year, though. My gut tells me one was a '70 and the other a '71, but that might not be right. Maybe it was a '69 and a '70? I don't remember.

Well, I remember staying up late one night as a kid to watch "Cannonball Run II" just so I could see Bigfoot. It smashed Hal Needham's Porsche 928. (I think? It's been a very, very long time since I saw it.) The old yellow Ford convertible in "The Karate Kid" was a sweet ride. So was Biff's black one in "BttF." Of course the titular Gran Turino in Eastwood's most recent movie was weep-inducing.

I know for a fact that the DeLorean wouldn't have had its cult following if it hadn't been for "Back to the Future."

Oh ar yeah i forgot to say i watched it, i found a few parts pretty funny tbh.

You dont remember? he wasnt actually giving birth obviously, he was pushing a log with his feet while holding the mamoths hand, she says push, an he replies with, "You have no idea what im going through" on the other side of the log he's pushing was 2 little dinosaurs???

It was a very short scene so you would only have to divert your attention elswhere for a few secs to miss it, but yeah that weasel was great! took me a while before i figured out it was simon pegg doing the voice, anyway it was a good animation and im sure now he's gonna enjoy it, i reckon he will like that sloth thing the most though?

I have never been a Trekky, but I'd have to say from an entertainment point of view it was decent action film. Of course the new CGI effects and all help Star Trek out trmendously. Other than some not so great acting on some of the characters parts, the actor that played Eomer in LOTR is in it and does a little over acting. But then again Zoe Saldana makes it all the better. She's eye candy that can act unlike Ms. Fox.

Interestingly enough I found the actress that played Tia Dalma/Calypso far more alluring, but that's within the context of a whole string of weirdness out of those three movies. I'm kind of curious about the new Star Trek movie. One of my nephews said it was pretty good. I also picked up "Wolverine" Saturday. Rather different from what I was expecting, but still enjoyable. :nice:

PS: Megan Fox is simply the Transformers franchise's hood ornament. That pic with her leaning over the open engine bay is probably going to be the "Majors" poster for this generation. Truth be told, I'd certainly rather look at her than Farrah Fawcett. :lol:

The Stray Cat
11-30-2009, 03:30 PM
There is no question about her being a good looking woman, but she can't act her way out of a paper bag. Not that Farrah could either. Anyway, Tia had a very alluring essence about her as the character. To be honest I don't know what the woman who played her really looks like.

Rag Star Trek is definitely worth checking out, I enjoyed it, and the Kirk was arrogant but nothing like god's gift to Star Trek was. The Spock story arc in the film was very interesting and the developement of friendship and respect between Kirk and Spock was great.

I don't have time for anything interesting at the moment. Gotta finish getting ready for work, and then tonight I have to do some family tech support. I have no idea how long that's going to take. A niece's computer was victimized by an "Antivirus System Pro/SWP2009" fraud attack, so I have to spend a couple of hours with some (supposedly) special tools to extract it and repair what I can. Spybot Search & Destroy detects it but can't remove it.

I told my sis (my niece's mom) after I first took a look at it Sunday evening, "if this ever happens again…get a Mac." I've had to fight these damnable machines tooth-and-nail for about the last three years! Even a Mac Mini would be plenty for what she needs. She has an adequate LCD, so there wouldn't be tons of new stuff to buy.

I installed Avira antivirus and Spybot S&D, and for some inexplicable reason my niece removed the AV app. Then, lo and behold, this thing rears its greasy head up. I've worked on this friggin dang computer about a dozen times, from little things like not connecting to the home network (most of the problems) to virus attacks and hard drive dumps.

On the subject of purging, after spending a lot of time attempting to remove the trojan, I've decided to back up the valuable files and do a complete slash-n'-burn. Actually, I've removed the trojan (or so it says) but the machine is still moving like it's made of frozen syrup. It took 10 minutes to open a browser window, so it appears that there's more to do than just trying to remove a fake antivirus. I now have access to everything, though, so it's nowhere near as bad as the last major renovation I made to this machine. Burn it down and replant the forest seems to be the most sure-fire solution to the problem. I trudge back over there on Saturday.

Run C Cleaner first and that should take care of it. A lot of time Malware likes to hide in Restore point data. So if you don't do a C clean you can scan once with a virus scan and "remove it" but the virus will show back up since it is embedded in data blocks that scanners don't clean out (restore points). Also, If you have a virus program on your PC (like McAfee) disable "on-access" scan before you do any of the steps above.

One of the nice features of Avira, that isn't immediately obvious, but quite cool... is the ability for Avira to boot first. It means your pc takes a few seconds longer to boot, but it gives Avira the edge over any malware that might be present.
As with the rest of Avira's features though, it isn't apparent that the feature even exists!!! It is a box you have to check during instalation. (I don't know if you can turn the feature on post install, but look out for it - Avira is one of the best performing free AV's, and this feature just makes it stronger). :nice:

None taken RockEd Out. I have pretty thick skin,and take everything with a grain of salt. You have to be able to take it, to dish it. I might be a new comer here, but have been in the hobby for awhile.

Well just trying to make the noobs feel welcome. So I figured I'd apologize but seems to me Itch is a good guy who will fit in nicely if he is as thick skinned as he claims. So Itch feel free to post any kind of nonsense that makes sense or no sense, we can't follow day to day any how.

I didn't think you were harshing on Itch, either. I just didn't want you giving him the idea I'm some sort of bigheaded "me no need help" kind of guy. :p If I'm successful at fixing something of this nature it's usually because I happened to win the contest of Eenie-meenie-miney-moe.

"Non-Sequitur Ahoy" maybe? "WTFs-a-Poppin'"? I think the "between me an rangerboy" title is absurd enough that it fits the whole errata mundi of the thread pretty well. :lol:
