I did until it got boring.

So, like, a few days? Bungie has fucked off with the community, so I don't think the franchise will have any staying power.

Sucks for all the people who were excited for Twin Peaks.

Caught up on Robert Kirkman's new ongoing series called "Outcast". It's absolutely fantastic.

While I likely won't bother with Chappie, and never saw Elysium based on the poor reviews, I thought District 9 was alright. Still, it does make you wonder who at 20 Century Fox sees these performances and thinks "That's our guy."

When Blomkamp has someone above him I think he does alright. He didn't have a script editor for Chappie or Elysium, so it may be why they sucked so bad.

But even though he's on Aliens, he has Shittley Scott above him and his track record hasn't exactly been fantastic for the past...25 years or so.

I've been trying to read The Way of Kings, but everything already seems all too familiar so it's a little difficult to get into.

Batman Arkham Knight ''Gotham is Mine'' trailer

I can't watch it because I've been waiting for this game since they announced it.

It's just too much for me. I can't. I just can't.

And thanks A LOT everyone on the page before for thinking of me and my family, missed seeing them yesterday (sorry). Got back on SK yesterday, so I have some catching up (reading and listening) to do. I took an additional week off to spend some more time home and flew back this past Sunday. We're getting over the shock slowly and I guess diving into work and our regular lives/ schedules helps in a way. A month whizzed by so quick, it still feels like New Years just happened, I was unwell and watched 2001 A Space Odyssey to bring in the new year. I have some unresolved things I need to figure out from a 'closure' point of view. And I'm going to have to make some hard choices in the next few months to do something with my life. There's immense pressure financially and emotionally in addition to the part of settling down which's something expected of me to take care of soon as well. Also have to sort of choose whether I want to spend the rest of my life away from my mother and brother or move back, none of which is a straight answer but in my mind, I know what needs to be done. There's a practical choice and a selfish one (maybe that's not the right word for it). So, lets see how the next few months hold up!

We're here for you dude!

Definitely stoked! I think he can pull it off. District 9 was cool, Elysium was a big disappointment and Chappie looks solid so far (new clip - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bFN16ynoSaA). Ridley Scott's producing it and Prometheus 2.

Agreed. Elysium was aesthetically pleasing, but the story really sucked. Also, Sharlto Copley's character did more damage to the movie than anything else.

Looks like Neil Blomkamp is going to be directing the next Alien movie. The franchise needs a major overhaul, and I've always thought he would do a good job of either directing that or Halo. It's years away, but I'm super stoked.

Cool recommendation, thanks Walter. Just picked it up on Amazon along with the rest of the Invincible series by Robert Kirkman.

Wrapped up volume 1 of Invincible (Ultimate Collection) and was left kicking myself for not having volume 2 right beside me. This volume contains 13 issues and the story flies quick. It starts with Mark, a high school senior, finding his powers inherited from his superhero dad come to form. He then becomes part of a teen superhero squad and has to juggle that with being in school and getting trained on the side by his superhero dad. His dad's originally an alien from a race of people who put themselves on different planets to protect the people and help with their technological progress. There's a plot twist 2/3rd's into the volume and things get hard for everyone. The best part of the story so far is the relationship between Mark and his superhero dad. Thanks John for introducing me to this comic!

It's my absolute pleasure. If you want volume 2, I can mail it to you. I have the compendiums now (which contain 47 issues per volume), so it's yours if you want it.

You won't be able to stop though.

Please God don't let him incorporate a ton of shit from Mama. I can see a lot of it in it=/

Other than that, I think I'll enjoy it.

Ok, for some reason my monthly pledge has been deleted? My pledge was taken out on the first, so I have no idea how my auto-drafted ended on the same day!

I thought the books were overrated back when I read them (a long time ago), which is why I don't bother with the show.

Oh, they're even more overrated now.

Ugh, I had some hopes that the TV series wouldn't disappoint me with their take on things, but when you frame it like that...
I don't know if I want to watch the show anymore. At least not until after the books are finished and I've read them.

On that note, imagine if you were Martin and everyone preferred the show's ending to your own. :sad:

I actually prefer the show over the books.

Damn man, must be tough on your wife physically! Congrats and welcome to Lola!

Oh, it was. This was her hardest pregnancy by far. But she always handles it like a champ, even when I'm getting chewed out for no reason!

Also, thanks everyone!

As many of you know, my wife and I are both extremely fertile. Well, on Thursday, January 15th at 3:48 pm, my wife gave birth to our third child in the past four years.



Her name is Lola Beatrice. She's awesome.

Second trailer for Age of Ultron.

Hard to believe the same studio did the trailer for Ant-Man.

When pen and paper can cripple your worldview and religious beliefs, what the fuck does that say about your devotion?

Jesus fucking Christ what a bunch of hypersensitive fuckholes.

1st Ant-Man trailer. I think it looks really fun like GotG. But, at the same time, I've never liked the character Scott Lang. He was a prick.

Still, though, excited for it.

Got my stuff from Grail the other day. Couldn't be happier!



Giganto and the poster, as well as the hand-made comic were all unexpected. Thanks so much again, Grail!
