  1. Video games are a fad. You'll get tired of those bleep, bleep, bloop, bloop games before long.

      No... I love bleep bloops they are the best!

      Those bleeps and bloops got a lot more sophisticated since then

      One of the more uplifting songs I can think of.

  3. Slowly, slowly learning the new system. It's starting to be not-frustrating!

  4. ♫ I'll sit around and drink a few more beers
    Until the memory just disappears
    'Cause you ain't worth the salt in my tears ♫

  5. I recently discovered One-Punch Man. Brilliant! Kinda wish I'd have discovered it ten years ago, but also kinda happy I can enjoy it new right now.

  6. I'm really enjoying Horizon Chase Turbo on Steam. It has everything I enjoy about racing games, and nothing I don't. Great stuff.

      Yeah, making those pickups can be a real challenge. Sometimes I think it would be nice to be able to disable that feature!

      I also noticed that one of the tracks in Brazil (I think) straight-up has a remix of music from Top Gear 2.

      Jin, I hear ya. Of course, I like good beer, but I also like cheap (good) beer, for example I'll totally drink a Hamm's or a Rainier, or (the opposite) a craft beer or homebrew, but will Never drink anything by anheuser-busch because it's awful and gives me headaches...

    3. GoldLeader

      GoldLeader

      But I do like hops and malt/malted barley, hops not too bitter, malt not too bright/sweet...malt whether it's in beer or Ovaltine, or coffee substitutes like Pero or in malts (the milkshake kind), or Whoppers candy...Yummm!

    4. DZ-Jay

      DZ-Jay

      @Jin, good beer does not have that much hops -- it's just the current beer-hipster-snob trend with so-called microbreweries.

       

      Real beer is complex and rich. It can be bitter, but it can be sweet and malty and nutty.

       

      Try a good lager, or anything imported from Germany. ;)

  11. Love. Love will key pus to get her.

      My friend had a website with a list of possible band names...Then one day a band got in touch and asked if they could use one of his names. They called themselves the BiPolar Bears. (I always thought that was pretty good!)

  13. I miss Beagle Bros. Brilliant software, manuals, catalogs, and ads.

      I'd eat it for lunch if it's that Swiss Colony stuff like those little bricks of cheese, smoked meats. Yum, cut it up and dump on a hoagie roll.

      Is St. Nick the same guy as Santa? Then who the hell is Kris Kringle? Whoever they are, they should all be arrested for breaking and entering.

      ...it's either beer 30 or wine 15. So every fifteen minutes it gets better!

  17. From Atlantic to Pacific, gee the traffic is terrific!

  18. I'm finding it hard to care enough to keep watching Luke Cage season 2, knowing the series was cancelled. Two episodes in, and I'm bored.

      Tron is fresh in my mind, given your avatar and just watching it last week. If you want to cleanse your pallet, watch that and imagine your own set of sequels. Forget the actual ones.

      Yeah, the original Tron's the best.

      I often pick up some Dead Guys because our nearby liquor store is always putting them in the ice barrel and selling them to me for $1 a can!!

      A buck a can! What a sweet deal.

      I don't want to waste time looking up "abstruse" or worrying that my word is not "real", so I'm going with my first instinct and saying banjophoningstruedelschnauzer.

    3. GoldLeader

      It's like if Germany had a word for redneck dogs...That's gotta be pretty abstrusticalating.

      No one else thinks The Brady Bunch should have been redone with Grady from Sanford and Son as the single parent of a blended six-kid household?

  25. There's so much good, new stuff on the streaming services that even though I restrict myself only to the shows I enjoy the most, and only when they're free, there's still more stuff in my queues than I have time to watch. Amazing!
