It's going ok. Someone gave me access to 10 Cloverfield Ln. Good movie so far.
I liked the movie for the most part.
Actual Spoilers, do not read unless you've seen it:
All except the last 10-15 minutes, really, when it turned into a completely different movie. I like to pretend all that didn't happen. It should have ended with the girl outside, seeing the alien lights in the distance, and rolled credits. Instead, it just switched genres into a cheesy action film.

Male Celestial Cleric of Myself 10/Radiant Servant of Me 10
I'm working under the assumption that Twizzlers and Chicken McNuggets still exist in the future. A future without them would be bleak indeed.
With regard to flashlights, the rules seem to imply that most mundane gear is handwaved away. I don't expect that we are meant to be foiled by a lack of windows.
My Ravenloft game has been adventuring in a swamp for a long time now (mostly because it keeps stalling because of me).
This information has it's uses when writing RPG material! How many adventures are set in swamps, after all?
That must be tough, surrounded by all of those beautiful beaches in Colorado...
Ok, but is it easy to identify from NYC or London?
If they are just forwarding a police press release? Maybe not.
If they are reporting literally anything else, such as a quote from someone at the scene or even what they gather from a 15 second Google search on the venue? Absolutely, it is that easy.
There has been a fair amount of LGBT erasure in some of the early reporting on this story, with some outlets not identifying that this was a gay nightclub until they were called out for it. That is surely a betrayal of the LGBT community and a horrid way to add insult to injury.
I do think the "terrorism" vs. "hate crime" argument may only just be beginning. In the spirit of trying to defuse arguments before they flare up, I would advocate that we as a society should evaluate where the line between the two is actually drawn (and are they mutually exclusive).
From where I am sitting, I think we should refer to every hate crime as an act of terrorism, not to erase who is being targeted, but to illustrate that the bigoted perpetrators of hate crimes are nothing more or less than terrorists, using the same tactics to terrorize and intimidate a community. If the shooter were a Christian, like the Roanoke, VA, anti-LGBT attack some 15 years ago, or the racially-motivated Charleston shooter, I would be comfortable labeling those as acts of terrorism as well.
When the terrorism angle is used to divert attention from the fact that this attack was motivated by homophobia, however, that is not okay.
If only. Those are sadly not Ashman's lyrics.
My favorite bit is:
Beef ragout, cheese soufflé
Go on, unfold your menu,
Tragedy in Orlando. This has topped the list as the deadliest mass shooting in US history. Per the initial reports, the shooter was specifically targeting the LGBT community.
I just have no words...
I think at least a few regulars on this thread are from Florida. I am hoping they were not there.
Man, I hate doing pop concerts. The arrangements invariably suck. That said, ** spoiler omitted **
Agreed! I think the Menken/Ashman stuff was some of my favorite music from the concert. Menken is still great post-Ashman, but the lyrics he is working with don't necessarily measure up,
On a related note, my solo was the Lumiere bit in Be Our Guest, so Menken/Ashman for he win!
Also, the arrangement of "When You Wish Upon a Star" we did was, in my view, stunning.
And yes, pops concerts in general are not my favorite. But the kids in the audience dancing in the aisles and such made it worth it.

Why does an inhabited barrier island have such crappy drainage? Also, if drainage is such a recurrent problem, especially when said island is subject to regular thunderstorms and frequent tropical storms/hurricanes, why don't said inhabitants do something(s) to improve the drainage? Yes, living in stilt homes helps those particular inhabitants, but what do you do when most of the roads are underwater/washing away and the septic fields & sewer systems are both too waterlogged to operate properly? Knowing all this, why doesn't everyone drive Subarus and other AWD vehicles? I miss my Subaru. [/Rant]
The real question is why anybody still lives in Florida.

So... Amsterdam or New Amsterdam...
Grease on pizza comes from three sources: direct addition of oil to the pan (more of a deep dish phenomenon), use of fatty meats like pepperoni, and use of cheap processed "mozzarella". Pizza made with real fresh mozzarella is not greasy at all unless you top it with pepperoni or sausage.

I try not to hate on it too much. It is a regional specialty. If someone gave me one, I would eat it (or at least a piece or two, at which point I would feel like I had a big rock in my stomach because deep dish is so heavy and greasy).

There is more diversity in pizza offerings here than one would think. Sicilian is easy to find, and there are lots of people doing brick oven, too, in addition to the typical "New York" style pizza (or Neapolitan, which is just a stone's throw from the NY style).
The only heresy is Chicago-style deep dish.

Poutine always helps.
When are we going?
F$~~ing incompetent mechanics. I've been having exhaust work done all year, and I keep having to go back for something else that isn't right with it. I kept going back to the same mechanic, because I didn't want to shell out money to someone new when the old mechanic would drop the price if it was related to his earlier work.
Today I broke the cycle, sucked it up, and took it to a new mechanic. (It helped that the old mechanic wouldn't even return my calls anymore.) The new mechanic put it up on a lift and actually showed me what a s%+$-show my exhaust system is right now. The muffler isn't even in the right position.
No new parts are needed, so they are just charging labor to put everything where it I supposed to be. And they're doing it on the spot on a Saturday, which I needed since I will be driving all over the place this week and needed it fixed.
There is nothing like pink eye to make one feel like a leper. (Well... Actual leprosy, I suppose...)
I just get asked not to show up at things. Two people (that I know of) ran to a bathroom and scrubbed their exposed skin after casually interacting with me.
On the one hand, it is all just too ridiculous. But on the other hand, if anyone I have interacted with develops pink eye I will feel terrible.
Random musings: Tried book by new author. About halfway through had to abandon book because I realized that the main character was such a caricature of hyper-masculinity that he was basically Gaston from Beauty and the Beast...and could no longer read any scenes he was in without imagining the accompanying musical number....
I am curious to know what book it was.
