    What's on your mind?

    You don't put it on with a trowel, y'know. If there's enough to make (visible) blobs, that's about 3 or 4 times more than you need.

    I don't know why this asbestos/baby powder thing is News now - my first-year high school art class cancelled talcum carving because the news about asbestos in talcum powder had just broken. That was in the freakin' '80s!!

    What Did You Watch Lately ?

    Guyver: Dark Hero Quite honestly the worst (and simultaneously fun) movies I've ever seen. It's on a par with Power Rangers for effects and costuming, with a story somewhere between utter drivel and pulp SciFi. But, if you're in the mod to get altered and throw popcorn at the screen...

    Top shelf rubbish. There are times when brain-in-a-bucket movies are just the thing.

    No, I'm not drooling. I..er..just spilled my glass of water!

    I had no idea, and after a few hours of headscratching, I gave in to temptation and checked the Top 100 list for 1996: nothing with those initials. So, indy, or just not a huge success upon release. Not '95 or '97 either.

    Roll Call!

    You're the only surf hero I can remember seeing, if that's any consolation.

    No - just a dysfunctional circadian. Gained 2 hours today (3am start) and probably will again tomorrow.

    Ahem. *tap*tap* Is this thing on? Fliptopia? You won that round, man. You get to set the next quiztion.

    Well done, Fliptopia! Yours. I'm off to sleep, now. (this waking at 1am shit is getting old)

    Wow - I had no idea an answer could fit those letters and still be wrong. Maybe you should win it on principal? "No"

    <shrug> Comparable to making a MAME cab if not cheaper. Rather fewer games, but also no questionable legality either.

    TBF, if you're crafty, damned near anything is googleable. Anyway... Hmm. I seem to have two types of band names left in my list: so iconic everyone knows who they are instantly (NIN, or ZZT for example), or single-letter 'fuck you' puzzles. Ok, here's one that's both: IMHBL by R. Heard this on the radio not long ago.

    The Dark of the Matinee, by Franz Ferdinand? Much googling involved in that answer - I don't think I deserve the win if it is one.

    So - who's around these days?

    It's a slashed "O" for me. If that wasn't your intended character, Chaos, then I'm guessing the board software is just passing the lookup code to the browser and how it actually renders is dependent on the user's own font selection.
  17. ... No, they have not. They're pretty fond of touting the game's camera, though, so I assumed. Which was probably unwise in retrospect.

    Yeah... I guess if you're going to, that would be the spot. Not because they're in a time warp there, but because that's kinda like the SoCal of the city: if somewhere's going to be weird, expect it there first. I haven't the vaguest, Chaos. (just reassuring you I *am* paying attention to the thread, not just mullets.

    So - who's around these days?

    Not sure I want radioactives in long-term close proximity to my bits, thanks. Fluorescent (UV reactive) ones could be mildly interesting for a brief* period** (pole dancer/stripper or photoshoot maybe)... *Ow! Pun unintended. **Eeww! Even more unintended. Edit: Aww - Lost me glowy bit. n/m - I still have my rep.

    how crap is this government ?

    <sigh> No, I know, I should be angry, but I'm not - I'm just depressed. In the next 20 years, these will all come to pass: a lot of people will become homeless as the sea eats their properties; a lot of high-tech firms are going to run out of material - starting with Helium (MRIs), followed shortly thereafter by one of the actually rare 'rare earth's; the next GFC will hit (10-12 years according to the modelling I saw yesterday) - and this one is looking to be a Great Depression rival... There's more, but that's quite enough to be going on with. So they're going to break the internet. I'll miss it. But they are going to miss it worse, because the financial repercussions will be astronomical. Fucking let them, I say. Another few trillion dollars is not going to matter much on that scale. (^Much of that impending doom can still be avoided - or at least mitigated. But it is going to require economic outlay not seen since the construction of the Pyramids (which is not going to happen), AND global cooperation (which is not going to happen). So... Move inland, and learn how to hunt or farm.)

    Haven't been back in 5 years, but I hadn't seen one there for a *looong* time. Not even in Elizabeth.
  22. Amazing piece of machinma here: All in-game image processing - including the cinematic sunset stuff. FOIP doing a stirling job, there.

    I was just going by what's written on that album cover above. *IF* that's the one it actually came with (and not something someone cooked up for the video), the spelling the song used trumps correctness.

    What are you playing at the moment?

    Playing hell out of No Man's Sky atm. I *hated* it from release until this last VISION update, but now... Fun, and doesn't make my eyes bleed. Still has some super-annoying quirks (can't change weapons in armistice zone, so you *have* to go back into the fray with a weapon with no ammo; can't fly and use the radio at the same time) and a couple of bugged missions, but otherwise a neat diversion. Oh... Online MP play is a thing now, but just don't. OK with friends, but not the world. The game saves are stored locally, there's a working save editor, and there's zero cheat detection.
