In Moot Member Blogs Space 1999 revisited Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #297 New Yesterday 02:34 AM
I tried rewatching Space 1999 yet again, and I'm seeing why it didn't do as well as other scifi TV shows of the time. Simply put it's not that well put together. Landau and Bein are solid actors, but the direction is pretty poor, and the stories are actually Trek ripoffs.

I didn't see that before because the show had a lot of gloss and wasn't holding my attention, but forcing myself to really critically watch them for all their worth. And the poor direction and editing really stand out. ...More Read More

In Moot Member Blogs No longer a Star Trek fan? Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #296 New April 12th, 2018 11:25 AM
Eh, I guess I still am, but I see Star Trek, specifically the classic 1960's show, as a cop show dressed up with spaceships, cool high tech gadgets and weapons, and the occasional space hottie.

I can now dissect every episode as a real world "dressed up" analog to a crime, law enforcement or security situation. I shrug my shoulders at it.

As a kid and up through a few years back, I still saw it as this really unique show that had aliens, monsters, and an intrepid crew of explorers usin ...More Read More

In Moot Member Blogs Japan Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #295 New April 9th, 2018 07:37 PM
So, I got a XOOM popup in Japanese. Avast continues to work in the background because I have not visited any Japanese websites. Occasionally I hit one looking for some rocking scifi anime, but my movie collection is mostly complete.

But this thing popped up either yesterday or this morning, and it was all in Japanese, event he audio and text, save for XOOM and the Paypal logo.

Kind of cool and weird all at the same time.

Speaking of which, I found some covers for the Japanese e ...More Read More

In Moot Member Blogs Avast and Mexico Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #294 New April 5th, 2018 04:24 PM
So, apparently my subscription to Avast, a little piece of software that circumvents regional blocking for streaming video and other elements for websites from overseas (I got it so I could stream BBC stuff), is probably the culprit for sending lots of oddball ads from corners from the other four continents. Oh well.

Feeling kind of lazy these last two plus weeks ... I need to get off my keister and finish reading a textbook on volcanology, and polish off a couple of adventure modules for p ...More Read More

In Moot Member Blogs Team Killing Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #293 New April 3rd, 2018 11:47 AM
I was just Team Killed on an Insurgency sever by a player calling himself "m12a43x56". I have copied and pasted his name to a list dedicated to team killers, and reported his profile to Steam.

Team Killing or "friendly fire" incidents, are typically fairly high on the "MAGA" (Make America Great Again) server, but I do tend to be the target of them more often than not.

So, now I have Mexican ads for Clorox bleach streaming on my ad feed.

In Moot Member Blogs Atheism 2 Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #291 New March 27th, 2018 03:04 PM
So, I was going to write a blog entry on the genius of Robert E. Howard compared to J.R.R. Tolkien, and how fantasy, scifi and gaming benefitted from both men.

But, true to form, there's been more bait-and-switch to push me towards the religious camp with the late and very talented mister Howard, through showing how a broader segment of non-traditional Howard readers find parallels between his writing and aspects of the King James translation of Christian mythology.

You know, I'm not a ...More Read More

  #290 New March 23rd, 2018 11:50 AM
So, I stayed up writing what I think is a fairly decent installment for my fan fiction thread. And I had a hankerin for some Age of Empires 2, Age of Kingdoms. The game stared at around 5AM this morning, and just ended fifteen minutes ago.

It wasn't an overly long games, though long enough, as far as AoE games go, but what made this a memorable game was the fact that both my allies dropped, even one guy who I knew pretty well and was on my friends' list, and in spite of going up against ...More Read More

In Moot Member Blogs Not working for Disney Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #289 New March 20th, 2018 07:50 AM
This is personal drama, and I should probably start a new blog on another server, but there's a reason I'm posting this here;

There was a sizeable Disney influence in my younger years, and it is my opinion that this was engineered for a possible career with Disney in some way shape or form. Given what I've discovered about my "real" biological family, and all of the drama that I went through, some of which involved Disney in a very roundabout way, I'm not of a mind to work for Disney in any ...More Read More

In Moot Member Blogs I am not a Vargr Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #288 New March 19th, 2018 05:18 AM
Truly, I am not. I do not have a long tail, I do not have upright pointed ears sticking past the top of my head, not do I have a long snout nor canine like teeth.

But YouTube thinks I'm an African American. And, further, also thinks I'm a woman out of India. Not that you could equate a Vargr with either of those ethnicities, but if I were sitting in my freighter at some downport, or in orbit, and cruising the local net, I would be getting ads for female Vargr products.

Alpo, chew toys ...More Read More
