Now it reminded me of a scene in some movie where a random cowboy dude asks Whoopi Goldberg "You wanna ride my horse?" and she responds with "I've got my own bike/car" (not remember which exactly).

Cowboy FHDM: Want to ride my flying car? *waggles eyebrows*
Amby Goldberg: No, thanks, I have my own jetpack...

I would happily star as "Ambrosia Secord" in a The Rocketeer remake if it meant I got to rescue Jennifer Connelly/"Jenny Blake".

I... My fear of heights is struggling with perspective of rescuing Jennifer Connelly.

I think you'll manage to save her before I get over the fear of heights. I dislike fast moving and have motion sickness (no fear of flying as such... though I might discover one with a jetpack instead of an actual solid plane).

Not going into the political details but I went to public protest today.

Of course it had to start to rain. It stopped in the middle of the walk.

The group counted thousands. The one counter-group I saw numbered three...

For Jennifer Connelly, my fears of heights, depths, and flying stinging insects would vanish. Or i could at least muzzle the screaming lunatic in me long enough to get the rescuing done.

She was my first on-screen crush: The Rocketeer and Dark City.

Anyhow! Not holding my breath on *that* opportunity -- but I am watching for a "knight in dented armor" moment. For anyone, but ladies first.

I was always a fan of Claire Danes.

But Jennifer Connelly will do.

So, evidently every box of toy shopping carts comes with step by step illustrated instructions on how pop the handles up and down.

Please note these instructions aren't distributed with the shopping carts, thus making sure they'll be forever stuck in the Up position. Because parents can't quite grasp that you have to push both buttons at the same time for it to work.

I love sowing chaos.

Keep up the activism! I don't agree with nearly everyone o' course, but I think that more public interest in politics is much better than less, on the whole.

On a personal note, this election cycle has gotten me motivated enough to canvass for my local political party. Because, well...hooboy, has this been a political year!

Ah, the off season. Not many tourists, and no line for the cable car. A lineless cable car is truly the quickest conveyance from work to the subway.

San Francisco's entire political climate made me actually start voting.

So, I've been enjoying iZombie, the series.

It's Netflix.

If you like the comic, I suspect you will not be a fan of the series. The adaptation is... heh... loose, at best.

It's not the most incredible must-watch show I've ever seen, but it's fun and well-made, relatively well paced, and reasonable well thought-out.

Very Murder, She Wrote in some ways - not exactly monster-of-the-week (unlike the comics there is exactly one "monster"), but definitely a crime-of-the-week-style of show.

Unfortunately, only Season 1 is available on Netflix - Season 2 is not yet available, and there are enough lingering questions that I would like to see it (to hopefully see them resolved, though I susepect that, if it were popular enough that would not happen - the eternal cycle, alas).

Anyway: it's pretty good. I would over-all lightly recommend it: pretty solid, fun, and enjoyable premise.

Please tell me it's about emotionally complex sparkly teenage zombies.

That's what I assumed based on the collectible action figures.

At least one episode has the protagonist acting like an emotionally complex teenager, even though she's a early-to-late twenties zombies.

Yup.

I agree that you have to do what is best for your family. But, watching all the local news forecasts, I think Florida is pretty safe. The east coast is going to see some storm surge at the beaches, definitely some strong winds, and dumpsters full of rain... but the state has experienced that before. I'd definitely make sure that I've got enough non-perishable food and water on hand, batteries and flashlights, candles and a lighter, charcoal or LP gas for your grill, a battery-powered/crank/solar weather radio--the usual stuff. If you have any ice cream or frozen foods you've been saving, go ahead and start cooking them for dinner now, so you don't lose them if the power goes out.

You might ask your (and Mrs. TGTG's) employers now if they plan on remaining open. Most businesses would be smart to close, as no sane customers should be out driving around in that much wind and heavy winds. Also, schools will probably close too, which means kids will be home, which means someone has to stay home with them. I'm not sure if you have kids or not. If you do, or for your own sanity, have plenty of things handy to do that don't require power--books, board & card games, etc.

I know it's annoying when a random Internet stranger says to "stay calm" when your brain tells you otherwise, but you guys should probably be OK, if a bit soggy, at the end of this. I definitely wouldn't want to be in the eastern half of the Carolinas though.

I wasn't able to watch Blair B... Witch Project. The shaking camera made me sick.

I tried getting into Destiny before Taken King, and although it was fun, shooty action for a few hours, I ultimately abandoned it. And yeah, yeah, I know that "Taken King makes things better" I just wasn't invested enough in it.

Hoping that Destiny 2 is going to be good, though.

If I felt like investing more of my money and effort into internet access, consoles, games, and the requisite gear, I'd probably be eyeballs-deep in Destiny. I played for a handful of minutes on a buddy's account months ago, and saw the appeal, but . . . .

Just gimme KotORII: The Sith Lords, and I'm good. :)

I just wish there was an infinite XP loop for light-siders . . . .

And if you want 'fun', we had a couple hundred small quakes in the Salton Sea, leading to an "approximately 1% chance of a 7.0 or greater quake along the San Andreas fault" over the weekend

The warning was for Southern California, but at least with hurricanes and tornadoes you get a bit of warning. A quake is just, "Oops! BOOM!"

Had to call the kids and remind them of our uber-simple quake protocol: "Get the cats and go out to the studio 'til we get home."

The studio's built to 2008 code, and can withstand something ludicrous, like 8.5 or something. And has water and food stored...

OK, having talked to my parents and my sister, they've seen other forecasts that predict the storm taking a more westerly coarse that effects more of the coast, possibly some more central areas of the state. I still don't think it's going to affect the state much outside the very east coast, but I should remind you that I don't demonstrate the best judgment when it comes to hurricanes. So, definitely do what you feel is best for the safety (physical & mental) of both you and yours.

Edit: Now that I think about it, I'm more anxious about a stranger named Matthew popping by than I am by a hurricane named Matthew.

Meh, as long as you don't look Matthew Broderick directly in the eyes he usually just rummages through your trash and leaves.

Really, he's more scared of you then you are of him. :-)

No painkillers? You probably can't drink alcohol either because it'll dissolve the clotting. Can you do some ASMR or meditate?

How to tell you are a family of hedonists:

NobodysHome: We have an appointment on Thursday?
C: Yes, sir.
NH: Well, I'm sure we can get someone around here to show up. Go ahead and confirm.
C: Very good, sir, I've marked you as Confirmed.

Quick IM to NobodysWife
NH: Does someone have a massage appointment on Thursday?
NW: Yes! That's for me!
NH: *Phew!* I thought we were going to have to find someone to send over there...


That awkward moment when you reference what is apparently really, uh... hm... - "dark"? yeah, let's go with that - show that you really should know by now, without realizing it's true nature.

I... I really should remember these things, if I'm supposed to be avoiding them, or whatever.

Actually, Pitch Black is a pretty excellent film over-all, and it's really not something I include as a a "horror" film, per se. There are horror tropes, yeah, but I consider it more like a "scary sci-fi" film (like Alien or Aliens or Alien3*).

I suppose it's a fine line to walk, but as I generally don't like horror films: there are exceptions, I suppose, but as a general rule it's almost always the other part of the horror film that makes it nifty (that and, you know, it being a solid film).

Though the death of that little girl causes me near-violent rages sometimes.
