I love the way they sold the narrative for the halftime show beforehand, on 60 minutes and in the news.   Latinas and female representation!  See little girls, you can do anything!! (As long as you're incredibly good looking and act like a whore.) Then it devolved into a good stripper show.  Endless crotch shots.  I especially enjoyed the male backup dancers in full bondage gear. 

 

I'm just waiting for all the Shakira vs screaming goat memes. Imagine an unattractive woman performing as Shakira in concert for a minute.

Big grats to Andy Reid and his first Super Bowl victory.  It was a very entertaining game.  I'm so glad that we're just about out with the old guard (quarterbacks) and into the new era.  Patrick Mahomes is thrilling to watch.

Yeah, I will say that was a pretty weird halftime show, made me wish we could reanimate Prince.... Oh, and I don't understand how that's 'empowerment'. J-Lo acting like Madonna and a bunch of strippers on stage dancing still looks like objectification to me.

Well, my wife and her Latina friends all thought the show was "the tits" and were laughing at the pearl-clutching gringos terrified that their daughters might learn it's possible to be a successful businesswomen, artist AND shamelessly work it on the dance floor at age 50.

Platinum Games just put up a Kickstarter to re-release The Wonderful 101 (formerly a Wii-U exclusive title) on modern platforms.  Initial goal was $50,000 for Switch version, but there was also a stretch goal of $250,000 for a Steam version.  And that goal has just been met.

Why is developing on PC so much harder for them? If you develop something to run on an ARM device certainly an x86 instruction set can handle whatever you've done on ARM.

Now now, this performance would have been "the tits" if it was Dolly Parton and Katy Perry. 
This performance was totally booty.

TechRadar - Rumor: AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990x (approx. $4000) is beating a dual-setup of Intel's Xeon Platinum 8280 ($20,000 altogether).

 

Guru 3D - It's expected that Ampere (code-name for NVidia's next GPU line) could have a performance increase of 70-75% over Volta (Titan V).

tbf, the PC is the cheaper stretch goal than PS4. perhaps is a licensing issue with nintendo

There's just one thing I hate more than reviewable pass interference and people who whine about the NFL overtime rules and that's the Super Bowl halftime show. If I had it my way it would be the normal 12 minute food and piss break you normally have.

I watched the better part of a DS9 episode via netflix. It was good.

Your culinary scientists were so preoccupied with if they could, they never stopped to ask if they should. 
Also, not exactly doing a ton to dissuade people from the belief that the UK is a culinary black hole, no matter how hard the Great British Baking Show and Gordon Ramsey try to make people believe otherwise.

Wait, didn’t Platinum just sell their soul to Tencent, why do they need our money? Just ask their Chinese masters to print them some yuan.

If you're only going to watch one episode of DS9, make it "S01E10: Move Along Home" "S06E19: In the Pale Moonlight".

Honestly wasn't much of a DS9 fan, but that's probably because it wasn't TNG. But I'm enjoying Picard so far. 30 years later and he's still the most altruistic and manliest character on television.

I'm actually watching the series to completion for the first time... I watched the first season or two before joining the military.

It's very good,in some ways superior TNG, and I'm glad I finally have done so. (I got about 7 episodes left.)

The Station setting really allowed for long-term stories and character development compared to other series. I watched through it all myself a couple years ago.

 

On the topic, is Discovery worth watching?

Completely agree that the station setting allowed for a different type of story telling. The more common serial storytelling you see today.

I think that type of storytelling could work in a TNG/OS style of show... You just need to have 4 or 5 episodes connected. Much like a story arch in a comic book.

I have not watched Discovery or Picard. Voyager is next. Never seen it outside of a first season or two.

See my previous post about my taste...

Spoiler

 

There's things in it I really didn't like and a couple things I enjoyed.

 

I think S2 is a lot better than S1.

I'd say it feels more like the JJ movies than a ST show, but more focused on one person instead of a crew.

 

Overall, I didn't regret watching it.  I enjoyed enough of it that I might rewatch at some point.  And I usually don't like rewatching modern shows as much as older shows.  I feel the trend of having a dozen episodes all telling one large story is harder to rewatch than nice, bite-sized stories.

 

I haven't looked at Picard yet.  Gonna just wait until the whole season is done.

So are people torrenting Picard or something?  Because I was going to go watch it and then saw it was CBS All-Access only, after the first episode.

Anyhow, I'm halfway through the Orville S2 and actually enjoying it immensely.  Even though I can see that it would be quite polarizing to the entire Star Trek/TNG fanbase.

I really don’t think the setting had anything to do with the more involved overarching stories, the writers had clearly been trying to go that direction since the second or third season of TNG and the new series just allowed them to take that a step further.

I have not watched Discovery or Picard. Voyager is next. Never seen it outside of a first season or two.


Good luck. I’m not a big Star Trek fan, but I’ve watched all the pre-Discovery stuff and Voyager is a big step down from TNG and DS9. And let me give you some friendly advice: skip Enterprise. It’s barely acknowledged in any later material, adds nothing interesting to the lore, and is easily one of the worst TV shows I’ve forced myself to sit through. And I watch a LOT of really shitty TV.

So are people torrenting Picard or something? Because I was going to go watch it and then saw it was CBS All-Access only, after the first episode.

Nah, I’m just waiting until I’m in SE Asia later this year. When I was there back in 2018, Discovery was on Netflix, and I imagine CBS will keep that relationship going in the region rather than trying to go international.

Probably not much help to anyone else, though.

Garou: Mark of the Wolves is $4.99 (-50%) on Fanatical, which it's been before lots of times, but now it's the Code Mystics version with good netcode and not the DotEmu one
