Yeah, I draw a sharp distinction between, "I'm jogging in the middle of the street on a blind curve at twilight in spite of 4' sidewalks on either side of me because I'm more important than the rest of the world" (and yes, I'm proud of Impus Major for not hitting her), and, "I'm driving/cycling like a psychotic because my employer pays me diddly-squat and then deducts from my pay if I'm late" (I'm looking at you, Domino's).

Both are horrible. But one is a personal choice and the other is corporate-mandated stupidity. And I put bike messengers in the latter category. Their jobs suuuuuuuuuuuuuuck.

I only see true professionals do that, usually at rush hour. That is a level of skill I do not possess.

Pittsburgh has a bicycle-based courier service, the Triangle Messenger Service. Seeing the chances they take while on Downtown Pittsburgh streets makes me nervous to the point of giving me an upset stomach.

Ride free.

Definitely going to drink a lot of coffee when I get home tonight.

Oh, and since I'm sure people are dying to know, our contractor was a no-show last night.

Which is already two strikes against him:
(1) The fireplace place took a $500 deposit from us, $100 of which is "nonrefundable" to pay the contractor for visiting our house. So technically the contractor was paid $100 to visit but didn't show.

(2) I understand that due to the nature of being a contractor, s*** happens and you can't make your appointments. But in this day and age, you have a cell phone. So unless you dropped it through the floor of your broken-down old truck and then ran over it, you really had no excuse to at least text, "Sorry. Can't make it."

So GothBard's going to try to get in touch with him today to reschedule, and if we can't reach him we might go back to the fireplace place and point out that you can't charge a $100 nonrefundable fee for a contractor who doesn't show and force them to give us a full refund or see us in court.

It's not so much that we're not willing to work with another of their contractors; it's the principle of charging a nonrefundable fee and then flaking. Going to hit me up whether or not I decide to the installation? Then you'd better d*** well uphold your end of the contract. I have lawyers. And I'm not afraid to use them.

Someone found cap yesterday in the wild again

I still am in love with that earlier cap gif, because that really is how he goes to work.

Considering the first lawyer I hired was an old chain-smoking New York Jewish woman who made Holocaust jokes and then said, "Oh, I shouldn't have said that. Forget I said that," I both dread and marvel who I might get for an actual lawsuit...

Today I dumped some wet concrete, drove and then dug some dirt and demolished some different concrete.

I also saw some guys for a different company that were doing fall cleanups, they were jealous we were still building.

So, yup, today was a good day.

Sometimes, you watch a preview and all you can think is, "OMG! If they can't even make the preview look watchable, how bad is the movie itself going to be?"

Then you see the cast list, and you kind of look forward to the amazing, epic train wreck that is coming to theaters soon...
...careers have ended for less than that monstrosity...

... Mm. Dench... Idris Elba... Sir Ian McKellen... how can you possibly-

... oh, wait, Taylor Swift. Okay, yeah, it's a fair cop.

This is not throwing Shade at Miss Swift personally, merely at her over-all recent career- and public- and style-choices, as of late. And, more importantly, is a joke and is in no way indicative of Miss Swift's ability to act; I'm presuming good enough, else she wouldn't be chosen?

But more seriously, the Uncanny Valley effect is quite strong on that film (which only adds to the surreal nature of watching a bunch of grown people dressed in CGI leotards pretending to be cats in a rather banal story). I had actually thought it had come and gone from the theaters, already - I was somehow unaware it was still forthcoming.

I loved the one along the lines of:

Cats: Hold my catnip...

Also note that it's a musical. Everyone knows Cats is a musical. And there's not a note sung in that trailer. That's...usually not a good sign.

More comment gold: "Not even Lovecraft could have imagined something as horrific as this."

Names sell seats better than talent in some cases. I'm not sure there's a lot of overlap between the young Swift fandom and musical theatre fans old enough to know Cats - every adaptation is someone's first version of that story, after all. I sure as hell don't think DeRulo was cast for his talent.

Uh-huh. Yeah, no. I don't like musicals.

So, typically when I start a campaign, players send me brief (1-2 paragraph) backgrounds and I flesh them out into stories that fit in with the narrative of the campaign, so players feel like their PCs are connected to the world.

We have a new player we've never met, and her first three communications have been:
(1) I always play a half-elf
(2) I will not heal
(3) Here's my background story where my 1st-level PC betrayed a group of thugs and soloed a dungeon that they couldn't handle, then scoffed at them and walked off with the loot

I am, er, not exactly happy with these statements. I kind of want to do the whole, "Who would win? You, or a housecat?" thing with her just to demonstrate exactly how "bad***" she is at the moment.

But, I haven't met her yet, so I'll give her the benefit of the doubt and let it slide for now. Maybe in other game systems 1st-level PCs are so far beyond mortal men that they don't have to live in mortal fear of a farmer with a pitchfork.

But in Pathfinder? That farmer could be dangerous with just a couple of good rolls...

EDIT: We've played with another player who had similar long narratives about herself and her background, and she was fun to play with despite her tales of taking on dragons solo while struggling to fend off a single mite. So as I said, we'll see...

As has been mentioned, there was no music in the preview.

For a musical.

The mind boggles.

Regardless, I know that Cats is a musical. So, I still will not see this.

The guy they cast as the Rum Tum Tugger. Jason DeRulo is a mid-rate singer best known for auto-tuning and singing his name at the start of all of his songs.

That Cats trailer did not caused uncanny valley effect for me, though it haven't impressed me terribly much. I don't care for musicals so I hadn't noticed they didn't sing either until it was pointed out.


3 people marked this as a favorite.

I've noticed that's a deliberate marketing strategy in some adaptations. A lot of people refuse to consider things they know are musicals regardless of how good the story is. So take Sweeney Todd. That one was marketed as pure horror (it's really more of a dark comedy). No music in the trailers. So I went with my mom to see it, and judging from the confused muttering behind me, we were the only two who knew going in what we were in for.

But...given that the two primary singers they've put in the cast for Cats aren't, well, good...it bodes ill. But hey, trainwrecks can be fun! Let's just hope this isn't a repeat of Russel Crowe Javert

It did produce a very memeable gif, at least. And it's the same director as Cats!

Me: I bet it's Cats.

(Click)
Yup.

I will watch ANYTHING with Idris Elba, because Dayum.
I will watch anything with Ian McKellen, because how could you not?
I will watch *almost* anything with Dame Judi (except for that dull sitcom she was in with her husband, because that's too British even for my tastes),
and I loooooove musicals.

And I will not see Cats.

Okay, the best part of this page, with the different conversation topics happening, I scrolled past this post and was absolutely convinced Drejk was talking about Taylor Swift.

To me, musicals are awful.

It ruins good movies with almost universally bad music. Even Rock of Ages, with it's epic 80s musical choices, sounded terrible when belted out in a show-tune singing style. Hearing them belt out Juke Box Hero in that cringy tone made me want to vomit.

(I will note Tom Cruise's non-musical performance was a perfect Axle Rose channeling.)

But then even as a kid I would fast forward past the songs in Disney movies. Mixing movies and music is, to me at least, like mixing pizza and ice cream. Individually awesome; ruined together. Not all music, but intentional, scene stealing music videos in the middle of my drama or comedy.

Again, however, I hate the style of music that almost all musicals use. That cheesy theater major sounding cliche heaven forbid you use any other genre showtune garbage.

Last I heard that was a legal decision, as the organization in charge of making trailers usually does not get their hands on the music associated with a film musical to avoid leaks/lawsuits on the part of the singer.

I have to say.

I love musicals.

I love (many) musical numbers.

I loved the most recent Les Mis. film - yes, cracky Javert and all.

But I also loved the Phantom of the Opera, starring rough-voiced rock singer, so.

... and I will not see Cats, either. I mean, maybe in a year or so.

Several things. Also I fast forwarded upon rewatching. Usually I saw em first in theaters.

Also, my opinions are my own and I judge not those with differing in this area.
