  • Amusing Quote or Song Lyric
    Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonour others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

    Stranger Things

    The inspiration from the Silent Hill video games is pretty awesome. (ie; otherworld). I really like this show. They really do capture the early-mid 80's vibe here. Love the D&D stuff, reminds me a little of ET. Actually I feel like I'm watching a show that was literally made in the 80's. It's that good.

    2019 Solo Acoustic Tour

    Still no Sault Ste Marie show. Arg. Well my In-laws live in Chatham-Kent so I guess London is my only shot. North Bay is too far to drive for one show. At least if I see him in London I can make it a trip to see the In-laws. I think I do want to see this tour and treat myself for once. I don't really get out any more unless I'm volunteering or going grocery shopping since I do shift work. This would be a nice Treat.
  3. I just finished a second run through Mass Effect Andromeda. I really like this game. It has its flaws and I am annoyed that I still get frame rate drops with a GTX 1070, however it was good. I wished they had made DLC for this. I just started Rise of the Tomb Raider. So far... meh. Also playing Shenmue I-II re-release for the PC. Lots of bugs 😞
  4. Wow he's really aged. I guess it was 13 years ago when I last saw the guy during the In a Coma tour. Apparently he's been nominated for an Emmy in the past.

    BNN Interview

    That was a good interview.
  6. I honestly can't believe that in this day and age, despite overwhelming evidence, people believe the earth is flat. I guess the internet has a lot to do with it.
  7. Opinons? https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2018/apr/10/fat-pride-obesity-public-health-warnings-dangerous-weight-levels I agree with this article. I can't believe that people are falling for the "fat but fit" trend. The science is in, Obesity is not healthy, and if you're "fat but fit" you still have an increased risk for heart disease. Obesity is the second leading cause of life-style related cancers! It's irresponsible to celebrate being obese just to save hurt feelings.

    2019 Solo Acoustic Tour

    I hear you. He used to play in Sault Ste Marie, (at least one show per tour) back in the early to mid 00's. But has not been back since. It would be nice if he would come back, I'd love to be able to see him play live again without having to drive 8 hours either way. I guess being in Canada that is difficult since many major cities are hours worth of driving from each other
  9. Re-installed Mass Effect 2 PC... man this game truly is a masterpiece. The pinnacle of Bioware before the EA buyout. (This game was not completed under a rushed EA schedule like 3 was). Joker has the best lines for comic relief. Just a well done game. You can tell which games had lots of time put in. The first Dragonage was something like 5 years. That's why it was so good.

    Thanks brother. Kind of you to say.

    I have given this some thought, and really, after reading what you've posted, feel that I deal with things in a similar way. Given what you've said, I think I am very similar. I look at it this way. Life is suffering, bad things happen to everyone. Things can be good now (enjoy things when they are good) but something bad will eventually happen at some point, (ie; parents get sick, kids get cancer or dog dies or whatever) and I think I've accepted that. I don't think I'm ignoring emotions or anything, more so like you said, I think I am just able to separate myself from what other people are dealing with, which really is a required skill in healthcare. I see it as an honour to provide care to people who are dying. It makes me feel good to provide good care to people in one of the most important events in their lives.
  12. Just finished Resident evil 0 HD edition for PC. Very well done port I'd have to say. I was tinkering around trying to get my PC version of Resident evil 2 to work with little success. Instead I used a gamecube emulator to play that version, which is also well done. Gears of War ultimate edition for PC was poorly ported. Game stutters lots, some AI issues etc; Have to use Vsync which I hate using. I prefer fast syc with a frame limiter. Most games are super smooth when I do that.

    1999 Much Music Performance

    I'm just going to respectfully roll my eyes at this one. LOL Since it was almost 20 years ago.

    1999 Much Music Performance

    Wasn't it rumoured she was dating or went on to date a member of the band? Hence the inside info? She was kind of a snot box if I remember, but I was 20-21 back then so maybe I could be remembering it wrong. She was really active on RFH and I think Metro as well. She was a blonde bomber for sure.

    Wasn't she that girl that was named "xxlikesitdirtyxx" or something like that?
