Time for your meds, Anno-san [Jul. 26th, 2016|07:33 pm]
[Mood |cynicalcynical]

The first screening of Shin Gojira (aka Godzilla Resurgence), the new Japanese Godzilla (written by Neon Genesis Evangelion creator Hideaki Anno) was shown in Japan yesterday, and since then a lot of news has started flooding in... with some of the movie's alleged details being really weird.

This is my utter lack of surprise.

On gold sellers (and their customers) in STO [Jul. 7th, 2016|11:40 pm]

"But surely these people engaged in a shady enterprise (as it were) will deal with me honestly and fairly and not try to steal anything that's mine."

And then your captain wakes up naked in a bathtub full of ice and "CALL AN EMH" written on the mirror.

Speaking of old dreams... [Jul. 5th, 2016|07:24 pm]
[Mood |thoughtfulthoughtful]

Here's a thought I had today:

When we say "so and so has/had a Dream", it's generally understood that we don't mean that they literally dreamed about it one night and woke up with the idea. Rather, that is how we contextualize the act of imagining a situation that Is Not, but Could Be (and Should Be).

I wonder if that idiom holds true in other languages, and/or how far back it goes. Did Bronze Age peoples, or Stone Age, have a concept or context for imagination and inspiration - looking at a thing, and thinking about how it could be different - outside of visions and hallucinations, whether divinely granted, nocturnal, or both?

<PyroICFF> I am digging the new Doom.
<PyroICFF> I'm ten minutes in and have already punched two monitors which were attempting to exposit plot at me.
(me) "Fuck you, Durandal."

Oddly, this is familiar to you, as if it were from an old dream, but you can't exactly remember...

famous last words, indeed [May. 9th, 2016|10:07 am]
[Mood |worriedconcerned]

Welp, not long after that last post, the machine stopped booting at all. :( :p Safe mode got it working again for the evening, long enough to back up everything, and booting to "last known good configuration" got it up again and, for the moment at least, stable... but I haven't tried stressing it yet. No gaming. Will it hold up, or BSOD again?

At least I have the backups, and a restore point made (though it may be built on sand). And Travis is coming over in a couple of hours with a Win 7 disc, though the need is no longer as urgent, knock on everything. (I may still have to do a repair, or worse. I just don't know.)

From a "bad food" thread (as in "delicious but unhealthy"):

A: (someone posts a thing)

B: A swift 1850 calories.

C: Nah, a Swift 1850 calories looks more like this:

I'm with the next commenter:
"i laughed far, far too much at this."
