    MTV stopped playing music videos?

    The ScreenRant review for "Bad Times at the El Royale" suggests that the movie is structured in a similar way to the brilliant "Tales from the Borderlands", where you see some scenes play from 2 (or more) perspectives.

    Sold!

    What happened in the “We Need New Hardware” thread that caused it to be closed... or is it just that HMX doesn’t want to hear about or gauge interest in something they have no control (?) over? It’s weird that it shows Rockstarman having the last comment in there, but that comment doesn’t exist.

    He's been muted. His comments need moderator approval before becoming public. See also Glory, Wooden.

    As far as the new hardware, yeah, that's pretty much it. They don't have a partner lined up to manufacture hardware, so you're at the mercy of third parties and their price gouging.

    It's not "gouging", it's just supply and demand. But yeah, it's frustrating.

    Have you been on eBay and/or Amazon lately? Hard not to call some of those prices blatant profiteering.

    well price gouging and and supply do go hand in hand. It is hard to increase the price like crazy if there is a bunch out there

    I do regret not having money and picking up spare instruments for cheap... I wish I bought that Red RB4 kit that was on the clearance isle at Target for $50 a year back

    Hoarding instruments = never not a good idea.
  • Meat-PopsicleMeat-Popsicle Road Warrior
    I have hoarder tendencies. My wife is not amused.
    But with Rock Band instruments, it turned out to be a good idea!

    Some days you buy four guitars for $5, some days you see Rock Band 3 for $60.

    I'll quote myself, it's my best RB-related buy.

    *edit* oops read it wrong, darn double negatives

    I did really want the red drums that were in the pack, but since I was Road Crew I was only sent the default kit

    I would gladly bought the pack, but I was unemployed, and only had $15 in my bank account

    That is all.

    I was walking alone along Constitution Avenue around midnight last night, and something scampered across my path into the bushes. I was SO excited: "hello, Rat!", I said, pleasantly.

    I've always liked wild animals but that never included rats, not until maybe 5-10 years ago? I have no idea why.

    Months ago, something twitched in the periphery of my vision, and I instinctively said hello to the critter. I looked closer: it was a rather large German cockroach. It took a full 2-3 seconds for my demeanor to turn solidly into "disgust". Maybe even "horror".

    So I do have my limits.

    Bugs raised in insect zoos, being fed a clean diet? Love 'em! Yes, even the roaches. Yes, even when they let me hold them (the giant hissing ones are so harmless that they are actually pretty pathetic). Living in someone's house, uninvited? Not cool. I expect the spiders in my house to make quick work of any such pests.

    [officially I am "allowed" to let up to one spider stay in the house, the others I am supposed to escort outside as soon as I spot them]
  • bclewisbclewis Road Warrior
    My appreciation of rats depends quite a bit on the environment and quantity I encounter them in...
    Pet rats? Awesome. A rat in the wild? Great. Five rats bolting for cover when I move a box in the storage shed? Not so nice...

    Same goes for ants, which I'm normally fine with, but was shocked once when I opened a honey jar in the cupboard and hundreds poured out.
  • yeah that is pretty much how I would feel

    I am fine with rats and most bugs as long as they are not inside a building

    with the exception that I am fine with spiders in the house (they kill annoying moths) and I never want to see a cockroach anywhere

    Did you know that President Martin van Buren would go supernova if he didn't have his White House champagne?



    But seriously, where did it all go wrong for van Buren? Well, people saw him as a snob who built a wonderwall between himself and the common man and tried to throw back the cost of paying for it to the latter. His opponent in the 1840 presidential election, William Henry Harrison, was a true rock 'n' roll star who drank hard cider and lived in a log cabin. Some might say that "Tippecanoe and Tyler Too" is even the most famous campaign slogan in history. In fact, it was Harrison who came from a wealthy plantation family while van Buren was the son of a tavernkeeper, but voters didn't believe the truth.

    So Americans looked back in anger at the last four years and swept Harrison into the Oval Office, hoping that with him, they could soldier on and that things would be getting better. Unfortunately, Harrison couldn't live forever. After a rain storm that might have included the shock of the lightning, Harrison became the shortest serving president ever when he got sick and died only a month after his inauguration.

    Breaking news! The chin piercings have been removed.

    Always a good time to repost this:

    Ya know, I'm a modern guy (of course I've had it in the ear before), and I am pretty opposed to the horrors that are glue traps. But I have a mouse problem in my garage and those suckers are now licking the regular traps clean without setting them off. They licked 8 out of 10 clean over night.

    So I'm sorry, but Amazon delivers the glue traps on Wednesday.

  • Why do they print these things so damn long? Seriously, who needs this many coupons???

    Those glue traps DO sound nasty! I liked the looks of this simple trap I saw on YouTube [though I haven't figured out where to buy it yet]. It's just a simple plastic device that screws onto an empty 2-liter bottle: there's a heavy ball that rolls down and prevents escape once the critter crawls inside to investigate the delicious smells inside [cheese, I assume]. But your genius mice would probably figure out to avoid it after the first night. Also, you're forced to do a humane release (ideally miles away). What do you do with the glue traps? I imagine you have to pick them up [avoiding the desperate thrashing of a still-alive mouse] and throw them out, and then listen to the mouse twitching around for the rest of the day, until it finally dies of exhaustion / dehydration. Aw.

    Or smash it with a brick. Brutal.

    I like to coat raw rice with peanut butter and use that as bait, it seems effective. My guess is that the critter either can't or doesn't want to get the bait off slowly and carefully. Or maybe it's just easier in general when there is only 1 mouse (or 1 small family of mice) around at a time, there's no chance for the survivors to learn from the example of others over time.

    I also want to participate in the CVS Receipt Challenge! I haven't been there in a while, so maybe I would have a whole bunch of coupons waiting for me.
