Did you click the arrow at the top right corner to collapse the menu?

It seems that I did.

Ignore me today, I'm clearly having a bout of incompetence.

No no, the only reason I know about it is because I did it and I didn't realise what the problem was for about a week.

This sort of bollocks writes itself when you realize that all they're doing is contorting language to avoid negative terms and connotations.
They also do it to avoid committing to anything. I asked a manager a yes/no question.
I got a 15 minute spiel about levering opportunities that had nothing to do with the question. I asked again, he got visibly flustered and gave the same waffle. Eventually I just had to walk away.

Just saw something pretty cool about Guillermo del Toro developing a DC movie called Dark Universe with John Constantine, Swamp Thing, The Spectre, Deadman, Zatanna and Zatara. That'll do!

He is supposedly doing it, it was originally going to just be a justice league Dark series. Unfortunately Justice league dark is horribly written and got sucked into tie in event hell. But more positively that means Guillermo has a clean slate to work with.

I've only ever seen Zatara in a very short story of Swamp thing annnnnd [spoiler] His death (and Sargons) is one of the most funny, tragic and awesome scenes I've read. Not only that but thought it was brief it helped define how Constantine gets close to people and then uses them up until there is nothing left. A trait that is a cornerstone of his character. [/spoiler]

The only thing is, when the hell is Guillermo meant to do this, he's got Pacific Rim, Pinocchio, Silent Hills, Crimson Peak and The Strain to think about.

Season two of The Wire threw me the first time I saw it, it felt almost alien to be looking as a bunch of pasty Polish Dock workers after coming to love Idris Alba and the others from the first season. It will make sense where it fits in with the rest, and is just as valid a story as the first season, but it will probably be season 4 or 5 before it does.

The wire isn't my favourite show but I can easily admit it's the best made show. I've only one complaint about it and it's a minor one, is the premise of season 5, and even then, the acting never falters for a moment, the story is still engaging, it just stubs its toe a little.

Season 4 is Amazing. I complained about the child actors in Gotham and there is a saying in Hollywood never to work with animals or children, but Most of the cast of 4 are children and every single one is great, they must have used up this centuries quota of good child actors.

That's pretty awesome.  Is there any way to get the old ones or am I too little too late?

I'm going to post all 57 pages in the documents section (from front page) this weekend, if I have time.  Otherwise, right after the 1st of the month.

Wow. That is awesome. I just re-read my copy of MSY and made my roommate read it last week. Good times. Good times.

I'm gonna drop box the whole thing, and maybe put it in the docs section here.



Not sure if I even reading comprehension

I have since changed my mind.

I will be posting it at drop box, and if anyone (except this asshole) wants a copy, give me a shout starting Monday.

I won't be posting it here as long as Raz Tech is a member of the board.

Ok, I'd started putting a few things together for that, but I can delete them if you want (wasn't anything big, just folders and a placeholder page).

Well, gimme a bit to mull this over.  I'm inclined to put it up, on account of it's just one shitbag (Raztech) that I hate.

In any case, due to moving house, I won't be ready until at least Monday to start queuing things up.

Cool, give me a shout if you need anything.

Ohhhhh. I figured out who it is now.

Spoilers should be bannable. Throwing that out there for consideration.

While it is the most shitbag thing to do, I'd be and even bigger shitbag after arguing that someone shouldn't be banned for posting idiotic racist comments if I advocated banning people for spoilers.

I do think spoilers should be deleted though, but that is censorship.

That was the start of Garth Ennis's arc and has Steve Dillon (Preacher) so every issue looks gorgeous. I read his six volume run a couple of years back and it loved it, the other writers who have written him have all had their own interesting takes on the character but he was the one who defined it for me.

Though what I'm most curious about is Constantine.

I can't imagine they can pull off what I like about Hellblazer on a network show, but the trailer had more right about it than I expected

Except, perhaps, that in the TV show, he doesn't smoke.  Those Silk Cuts were like a character all to themselves.

One if his defining arcs was his lung cancer.

I watched the Pilot, it was ok, felt more like charmed then hellblazer but I was expecting that.

I'm getting ready to watch Gotham.

Preparing for shitty, hoping for passable.

It's absolute garbage. With very little work it could have been a really good crime show looking at the ramifications of vigilantism. In fact I'm fairly certain from some of the aspects that were chosen it was supposed to be http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gotham_Central

That is until producers and marketing get involved. Then suddenly we have Twee versions of Poison Ivy, catwoman, the riddler in a show that apparently cant stand on its own merits.

It is Origin Story: The series.

Reminds more a live action Teen Titans.

How do you feel about the NEW 52 Detective comics?

I have all 4 volumes on hardcover so far.
I actually haven't read much of it. I started with the first few issues but it was a lot more action + sci-fi + weird then detective. I like all those things but it was a sharp contrast to what I had been reading up until now. I haven't read anything of DC's other than Wonderwoman since they had that Forever Evil Crossover Event.

Batman gets slapped around a lot by minor/low level grunts in this reboot which makes me jump for joy since I like seeing Batman shit his pants knowing he was almost killed by some scrub. Do you live in the  U.S? I can lend you a copy of the hardcovers if your promise to get jizz,coffee,fire all over them.

Hehe, Cheers man, I'm over in the uk, they have them in the store here, I'll give them a read at some point.

I'm a really cranky guy when it comes to TV, my house-mates thought I was a snob when it came to this stuff, they were probably right.

It doesn't help that I'm rewatching the wire, which is probably unfair to do to it.

What I liked
Alfred as much less posh sounding butler
The costumes and look of the city
The penguins actor
Bruce standing on the roof looking like he is going to kill himself but was actually being goaded on by his psychotic butler

What I disliked
The clunky exposition, with emphasis on the repeatedly using each new characters name as they come on.
The riddler, nudging the audience in the ribs
Anything the penguin was used for
The seeming lack of purpose
In the space of a day Gordon meets (and gets the name for) the penguin, the riddler, poison Ivy and batman this makes me feel like less like the show is world building and more that were seeing a small incestuous group of criminals

The idea of a chain reaction set off from the murder as you say is a cool idea, but in some cases they are better off leaving the character out for the time being. Part of batmans thing is escalation and crazy people popping out of nowhere. It was too much too soon.

Shield was a show I just couldn't get into, though I have heard it improves greatly towards the latter half of the first season I just wasn't into it.

Yeah, definitely broke PerMa:



Also, had to remove Skyrim Immersive Creatures.  A shame, but it was producing a 100% reproducible crashes at the Halted Stream Camp.  Maybe it was the combination of that location and another mod and SIC, but either way, it was annoying the shit out of me.

I see Sheogorath gets to set the description for Daedric smiting.
