It is a business. Nobody should expect Toonami to get shows/movies for nothing or not have to pay what they are worth. Trying to argue that with Paul is more trouble than it's worth. I just trust that they aren't many people who agree with him and avoid dwelling on the topic when it comes up.
Sometimes I wonderw why you work with that guy. Paul still thinks that it's 1999, and Darrell is obnoxious to the point of shutting the podcast off. There's ways to be annoying but endearing and he...isn't.
Look, I get that people are attached to older ways of doing things. Even when they don't work. Look at Jim Cornette whining about Lucha Underground, which is quickly becoming one of my favorite TV shows in comparison to an unwatchable Raw. "Oh, it's a TV show, it doesn't pretend that it's real!" .Robert Rodriguez is directing it you f**khead, of course it's a TV show! I get nostalgia, but there comes a point where you go past nostalgia into archaic thinking. Hell, people should be happy that shows which would otherwise be obscure releases on overpriced discs are getting a platform as big as Netflix and Hulu. I just wish it was around earlier, for shows that could have been big but never got the chance, like Ippo and GaoGaiGar. Would they have been certified hits had they a mass platform like Netflix and the like? No one can say. Would they have faired better than being released in a glut of Genon releases (Genon) or ignored for old Voltron episodes in a decision that doomed their company (GGG)? Probably.
I had it for 3 days and it made all of my programs run much faster. Even my dinosaur of a video converter was churning out results in minutes and not hours, but then it took it upon itself to try to decide for me what I should be using even though I turned all of it dickish features off......It was f**k it at that point. Went back to 8 and disabled any chance of that shit resurfacing on my comp.
It hasn't tried to tell me what to do yet. Perhaps I haven't stepped far enough out of their biodome.
Yo fool! I've been up and awake since 10:30am EST yesterday. I've been here. So, how are you this marvelous Monday? :)
You have not slept yet? Impressive. I've pulled an all nighter last week in spite of the Venture Bros S6 premiere. I'm doing shitty actually, Ive seem to come down with a body virus lol sweating and puking.
I, too was violently ill on Friday, food poisoning to be exact. I got a tainted meatball sub at Firehouse Subs. Ended up projectile vomiting eight times in one hour and had violent stomach cramps and dysentery for ten hours. Luckily my system purged the foul sandwich before it caused any more damage than that. I hope you get well soon. Good Luck and Godspeed.
I would like to utilize this thread to talk about the gold standard variants of everyday things. For example; sweet tea, Kraft singles, Maxwell House, and Coca-cola/Pepsi are all well and good, but what alternatives do you pursue in times of plenty? The fancy alternatives to the things listed: Loose artisan Ti Kuan Yin Oolong tea, Smoked Gouda from an actual cheesemonger, Java brewed from the Brazillian Blonde bean, and premium specialty sodas such as Avery's Blue Raspberry soda or MacFuddy's pepper elixer.
For the TL;DR crowd, list your favorite frugal and/or affordable fancy goods. I'll go first.
Vintage Pu'erh tea
Fancy cheese such as Manchego from Spain
Jones soda esp. the Peanut Butter & Jelly soda
Neu Haus chocolates (Though I can no longer find them)
Margarita cake from Once in a Blue Moon Bakery
Sushi, preferably a platter of assorted Nigiri sushi rather than elaborate maki rolls.
Fresh Baked challah bread from the Great Harvest Bread co. w/ wildflower honey.
"You don't want my life. What do I have to show for it? Metal plate in my chest, Vatican karate gorilla blood on my hands, and a foot locker full of manbro viles."
Well i eventually gave my 3DS and my games to my niece, cuz I cant be trusted to study if I had it.
But you can ask peeps like Naraku or Buddy, I had perfect competition pokemon.
Only 1 off perfect IVs, perfect EVs, perfect moveset, held items and set teams.
In the newer games, there were certain tricks to help level a monster up to lvl50.
And you only need lvl50 cuz in battles, they set the level to 50 even if you had higher level mons.
I would play the story with certain mons, but to have a good fighting quality monster you have to put the effort into it to make it worthy of fighting.
If you use any monster willy nilly, you will get your ass handed to you.
Pokemon can be pretty damn serious.
There's surprisingly a lot of depth to the game.
But it is still a little kids game about catching pikachu.
