Nintendo Switch

I have no plans on getting the Switch either. At this point I pretty much resent Nintendo as a company. They make some great games, but their games would be even better if they were released for the PS4 or PC. I got Breath of the Wild for the Wii U and the frame drops are just atrocious, and my unde...

Horror movies

Horror doesn't particularly appeal to me either. In fact I don't think I can recall a single true horror film that I liked. Cabin in the Woods would probably be the closest thing. Maybe something with striking imagery and cinematography like The Shining, which I haven't watched as an adult. To me, h...

Favorite Shows of All Time

My perennial favorites, shows I've watched all the way through more than once and probably will do so again: The Wire Deadwood Rome (the HBO series) Firefly Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (Well, I probably will never do a full re-viewing of this series.) Honorable mentions for that section would be Comm...

The Wire - s01e10 - The Cost

It would have at least improved their chances of catching the shooters before they could flee the scene though.

Hurricane Irma

Surprisingly we kept power, though about half the county wasn't as lucky. [Edit: It seems I spoke a bit too soon; we just lost power even though we're not getting much weather right now.] Most places are closed today, so yeah, a lot of people have the day off. I think things will mostly be back to b...

Hurricane Irma

We're doing OK so far. Things are a bit nerve wracking as branches have been falling so we hear periodic thuds on our roof (so far not really worse than what we sometimes experience during thunderstorms though) and I've heard reports of downed trees around town. We still have power but there was som...

Hurricane Irma

Yeah, other places had power that weren't too far from us (after a couple days at least). I spent a few days at my grandparents' house, and went with my mom to work a couple times since they had air conditioning and drinking fountains. We didn't get a generator. I think the storm's aftermath is when...

Hurricane Irma

I live in Gainesville, FL so I'll be impacted as well, but by the time the storm gets here it'll be weakened a lot, and we're above the flood plane. Still, even just a strong thunderstorm can knock down trees and boughs sometimes which can badly damage houses, and we're guaranteed to lose power for ...

Bojack Horseman

I watched this series over the course of a couple weeks sometime after the second season was released. I haven't yet started watching the third. It's got a good mix of pathos, moments of heart, clever but fairly straight-forward jokes, subversions of common jokes/tropes and just outright weirdness a...

Seth MacFarlane's Star Trek Spoof - The Orville

Yeah, I saw the original trailer and knew I wasn't interested even though Galaxy Quest is one of my favorite movies of all time. My impression was that it looked like MacFarlane’s usual fare (which I was never too huge a fan of) lazily dressed up in a Star Trek skin... but since Sepinwall's review i...

The Wire - s01e10 - The Cost

I think that the undercover cop's smirk and laugh combined with Orlando's apprehensive look at the end of the sting scene signals to the viewer that Orlando got played somehow, but yeah it's not completely clear what happened until the later scene. Some poor decision making was definitely made by th...

Overwatch is the only multiplayer game I play very often right now, mostly Quickplay and some Arcade though I may try making the move to ranked soon. My Blizzard Battle.Net tag is Tukka#1359. I'll probably get Destiny 2 when it launches for PC. My uid on Steam is Quinstol (https://steamcommunity.com...

Fox picks up "Gotham" series about Batman's hometown

I haven't been keeping up with this show, but I enjoyed it pretty early on. I liked the look and feel of the setting a lot, and the Harvey Bullock character, but the story failed to keep me invested and I stopped watching at some point during the second season I think.

GoT - s07e07

It seemed kind of odd to me that Bran would even care that much about Jon not being a bastard. Most nobles only seem to care about the legalities of the succession when it's convenient for them, and it's not like the army of the dead is going to bow before the rightful heir to the Iron Throne. I gue...

The Wire - s01e09 - Game Day

Omar is pretty much the only character on the show that isn't constrained in some way by rules imposed by an external order or system. McNulty and D'Angelo try to buck the rules of the organizations they operate under but they are still ultimately bound by them. So I think Omar is even kind of exemp...

GoT - s07e07

I wonder if they were always working together or did it happen recently. There were a lot of scenes where they seemed to be bickering with no one was around but them, were they that good at putting up a front? I think the bickering and suspicion was real. I think it's intended to be ironic that Lit...

Morrowind Multiplayer

Interesting. Morrowind is a game that's pretty close to my heart, but I don't really have any desire to play it with other people. It's good to see progress is still being made on OpenMW though.

Mechanical Keyboards

I've had the same wireless keyboard for over 10 years. I've been seeing mechanical keyboards on Slickdeals and thought about updating, but I have a question, why don't these keyboards have number pads typically? I don't want to replace an old keyboard with a new one that is missing that. I believe ...
