[chat] Fandango

edited March 2014 in Debate and/or Discourse
With bony hands I hold my partner
On soulless feet we cross the floor
The music stops as if to answer
An empty knocking at the door
It seems his skin was sweet as mango
When last I held him to my breast
But now we dance this grim fandango
And will four years before we rest.



Friends, let me tell you of one of my favorite games, Grim Fandango.



Released in 98, just before the Day of the Dead, Grim Fandango is one of the best adventure games ever. With an amazing noir and art-deco aesthetic, a fantastic soundtrack, smart humor and clever puzzles, it is probably Tim Schafer's Masterpiece.



Set in the Mexican land of the dead, it follows the trials and tribulations of Manny Calavera, a reaper whose job it is to bring the souls of the recently deceased and sell them an affordable travel package. Over the course of the game, many things happen. Romance, Excitement, Murder... and Redemption!



So if you have a chance, try to purchase Grim Fandango. Or, if you have it already, play through it once more. you won't regret it!

    I was up late watching Arrow. I stopped watching at about ep 10 of the first season last year, started over last night.

    Why do I do this to myself? 3.5 hours of sleep does not a happy Nova make.

    Editing my masters thesis still, slow going because one of the committee members literally included 5-10 revisions on every single page, including notes like "BECAUSE???" Not really attempting to conceal contempt for me and my work.

    What I love is that my advisor also edited this draft. Like, after the fact. After the defense he's handing me back a marked-up copy with new directions I need to go in. Thanks dude, it was super helpful that you held these back until after the defense that was lovely.

    Take a moment to donate what you can to the International Rescue Committee, the National Immigration Law Center, the Southern Poverty Law Center, and the American Civil Liberties Union. There has never been a more urgent moment to do so.

    That Grim Fandango puzzle involving the street sign was impossible. You had to point it at the ground and the ground opened up, revealing a secret passage. That's just silly. Designed to sell strategy guides.

    The Republican sequester demanded a year delay for Obamacare's implementation because the program wasn't ready yet. The Democrats went ahead with it anyways and destroyed America, reducing the country to cinders.

    serenity was a fine movie but nothing was going to recapture da magic of firefly
    mostly because the magic of firefly was that it got canceled before anything bad or stupid could be made

    Shameful pursuits and utterly stupid opinions

    Man Russia took the Crimea without a shot fired.

    At least so far.

    I think China needs to learn how to land grab from Russia. Like damn that was masterful and opportunistic. The Chinese look like bullies but the Russians can play the "There are Russians there" card.

    Even if it is complete bs and Russia just wants to take back the Crimea.

    Poor Kiev really couldn't stand up to the Russian military in a fight. Putin has funneled a good amount of money for the last decade into getting the Russian military out of the shit lord level it was out. I would say it isn't horrible anymore and the Ukrainian military is well below it.

    Still, never thought I would see Russia trying to start a WWIII in Europe again.(No one will defend the Ukraine, they be fucked)

    Man.. I don't know what is annoying me more this morning:

    Comedy websites that have very few articles per page to increase ad revenue,

    or Youtube "ads" that are 25 minutes long, screwing up the autoplay playlists I've been watching unless I catch them and hit skip.

    In the short term, perhaps. But unless they do actually want to start a third world war, they pretty much just ruined any chance at detente with any other state in proximity to them, and just jump started energy independence research to the nth degree.

    I'm currently just chain-watching Crash Course World History while cleaning.

    I wonder if Google gives money to the content producers if people only watch the 5 seconds then click Skip. I know 15-30 second ads can 't be skipped, but anymore it seems like these ungodly long ads keep showing up.

    Total Biscuit talked a little about it. IIRC, he basically said that he gets a small percentage if you don't watch the whole thing.
