16h RIP Bill Paxton Sorry to hear of his passing, and at 61, way too early =( "Game over, man, GAME OVER" has got to be one of my favorite movie lines out of the 80s, from one of the 80s most epic sci-fi flicks. Not just a great actor but a hell of a writer and director as well. Give 'Frailty' a watch if you're not weak of stomach or heart. =(Breakbeat3 16h
16h Doc Martin The woman he married is pretty boss and the best thing about her is, she is British! But, well, of course she is, lol. If no one has seen it, it is a British show depicting a doctor who faints at the sight of blood. It has a pretty awesome group of characters. I just love listening to the ladies British accents. : ) Rock on!Oreohhs0 16h
21h Just started: The Last Kingdom Netflix Series. Finished Episode 2 Very engaged so far. Nice pace, good characters, interesting plot, well acted. Don't tell me the ending, Mrs. Zigra and I are binge watching it in our 1-2 episode-a-night pace. As a fan of Game of Thrones, House of Cards, Stranger Things, and other made for tv gems, this one kind of snuck by my radar. Glad my son recommended it. Great so far. Zigra, looking for gemstones on the plains of clay.Zigra10 21h
23h Walking Dead wooooo I'll be prepared to actually talk about it tomorrow.Cihys79 23h
1d anyone else ever notice things? Like every and I mean EVERY movie I watch now, I can't help but notice GLARING, OBVIOUS, BLATANT inaccuracies that just..... I can't even begin.... It is just entertainment isn't it? Pure and simple. EDIT: What I mean is they don't even pretend to try to make them the least bit accurate about nothing. That's all. Rock on!Oreohhs22 1d
1d Greatest movie ever made? Black Death. I love that movie. That movie and also Ironclad are the two greatest movies of all time. Am I right or am I right? If you have not seen Black Death then I would suggest that you do. It is a cheerful uplifting movie even though you never see the sun or the sky throughout the entire movie.Holytemplar132 1d
1d Warcraft Movie Does anyone else feel like the Warcraft movie should have went the direction of Wizard of Oz? Not in terms of tone, but more along the lines of how it was structured. Slowly introduce the "party" with one major quest pulling them all together. Give it a darker tone, but not too edgy. Hell, even make all the main characters of the story no name hero's.Renjien3 1d
1d Just watched "The Wind Rises" Damn, 10/10, do recommend. Brilliant animation and plot.Asapbrown0 1d
2d Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Ep. 45 (spoilers) shino's death hit me hard in the feels. i need som /hugNadaeya0 2d
2d Sequel to the Warcraft Movie? I realize that the Warcraft movie did not do well in NA, at least when taking into account the budget. However it did do well everywhere else and it had an astounding success in China and the rest of Asia. What is the current status / rumors re; possible sequel? I really hope we'll get one, I for one loved the movie. Also, if we are going to see a sequel, any rumors whether it would be The Burning Crusade or perhaps Assault on Blackwing Lair related? I really hope they will continue with the movies...Gellix9 2d
2d St Anger ins't as bad as people say ...Except for PurifySádico43 2d
2d Get Out (movie) Did anyone else see this movie? I went to the theaters today, expecting to see La La Land, but when I learned it was too crowded, I saw this movie. 4.5/5 stars by fans, and 100/100(!) on Rotten Tomatoes. SPOILERS: Basically the gist of the movie is this black guy has been dating this white girl for quite a while, until she says it's time to meet her parents. So they drive a long way to meet with them, and while he was there, he thinks they're being unintentionally racist, but it turns out to be something else. I'm not going to be spoiling it for people wanting to see it. Anyways, long story short, I really enjoyed it. I came out not expecting much, but it turned out to be very good, with a whole lot of details to support the plot. I will say, as a Psychology major, I don't agree with their idea of pseudo-psychology, and their usage of hypnosis in it is highly incorrect. But I don't think it shouldn't have been in the movie. It really wouldn't have been much of a movie without it. Here's a trailer for it: What did you guys think about it? Or if you haven't seen it, what do you think looks interesting about it?Vynathlon0 2d

2d Electronic / Dance Music (Updated 2/25/17) What's up, everybody? OK, so, I love electronic and dance music; everything from chillout or ambient to house to drum and bass, dubstep, trap, pop dance and most of what is in between all of that. I like sharing the music I love, and I hope you find my track and mix selections interesting. Most links I post are primarily from Soundcloud (just to keep stuff organized 'cause most producers and DJs post their content there), but I also frequent Bassdrive, Mixcloud,,, and Youtube for music. All of those sites stream loads of dance music, and it's all free. What are your favorite styles and songs? Fan of a particular DJ, podcast or website? Share it here! My latest playlist is at: ======================== Track of the Week Blinding - 16 Shots (UK Garage / 2-step) ======================== I update Weekend Rhythm every Friday, and I also re-post tracks daily. If you like what I post, follow me for new music daily! Thanks =) ▇ ▅ █ ▅ ▇ ▂ ▃ ▁ ▁ ▅ ▃ ▅ ▅ ▄ ▅ ▇▇ ▅ █ ▅ ▇ ▂ ▃ ▁ ▁ ▅ ▃ ▅ ▅ ▄ ▅ ▇Breakbeat337 2d

3d South Park/Legion Connection I think I have stumbled upon a major connection between the Artifact Power system and the South Park Episode "Make Love, not Warcraft". In the episode, the boys decide to kill boars in order to defeat the main baddie in the episode. Cartman states that they will need to kill a total of 65 million and some change boars. To reach max artifact traits, you need 65 million and some change artifact power. In the episode, Cartman states this will require them to play for 54 days straight (7 weeks and 5 days). There are 54 artifact trait points. I have scoured the Internet with friends and we believe that I am the first person to make this connection. South Park may have influenced/inspired devs when making the number design of the artifact power system. I believe I have discovered a numerological easter egg, and that this may not be a coincidence, but intentional design on part of devs. Thanks! -Gatewood, StormrageGatewood11 3d

6d My Little Pony Friendship is Magic #11 All right! New thread! (Part 1) (Part 2) (Part 3) (Part 4) (Part 5) (Part 6) (Part 7) (Part 8) (Part 9) (Part 10) This might be a bit unrelated to everything but for my very first attempt at fanfiction, I wrote up a story about my character, but everypony in the story is a pony. Has a basic plot structure, but considering it was written in about four hours I think it turned out pretty good. Any feedback you can give would be much appreciated. Edit: Lol sorry, forgot link: Also, I've unsubbed in case anyone cares. My subscription should end on the 28th so I've got another three weeks of posting on the forums until then. Just thought I'd put it out there. Edit from over a year later(!): Turns out my link to the fanfiction was faulty. Back in 2014, there was a fanfiction forum that Blizzard had around for a few months. It was pretty cool for people to post their own unique fanfictions in. But over time, they re-updated the forums again and the roleplaying forum just became the new fanfiction forum. As a result, any old fanfictions posted in the destroyed forum just leads to a broken link page. It was a shame too. I actually worked pretty hard on that thread. Future me, I'm writing to you to tell you that Fallout 4 comes out in three weeks and it looks pretty awesome. Edit in here later on to tell me what you think of it! 2nd Edit from four months later: It was a whole lot of fun, past me. I beat it a few months ago, and I'm still consumed by thoughts about it. Turns out that once you beat the game, there isn't a whole lot more I can really do. Lots of repeatable quests. Still, I'm determined to level up my stealth abilities because there's no level limit in the game! I got to level 66 before beating the game. Future me: I'm writing to you wondering about my school year. I'm taking three classes and it feels like I have midterms every single week. It's hard to maintain both my video game/tv watching schedule and still not get too stressed out over school. Does it get any better, or is it just worse from here on out? 3rd Edit: Hello past me's! I'm just writing to say that yes, things do get better. It is now January 28th of 2017 (yes I know, 2017 seems way futuristic). Fallout 4 is now considered one of my most favorite games of all time. Classes got a bit harder last quarter, but this quarter things are pretty chill. I have school stuff sure, but most of my free time is occupied in watching video game speedruns online, watching old shows on amazon, facebook, and playing cool steam games. I've also resubscribed to WoW, mostly out of boredom. I did miss these forums, and it's nice to be back in them once again. Future me: What kind of a job am I going to get? It's early in the year, and my job looks pretty unclear.Vynathlon308 6d
Feb 21 Documentary on Tesla Basically he could light a light bulb using his Tesla power from four miles away while today in MIT or whatever else passes as the bastion of knowledge, using everything available to these "geniuses" (team of them) they were able to accomplish the same thing, but four feet away, maybe? Makes it kind of obvious that the only thing people value is MONEY, in/on this world. Doesn't it? Other thoughts on this? Any at all? I am willing to debate anyone. Of course there are no debates, are there? Only exchanges of ideas, unless a person is wanting to discredit and devalue, that is. Rock on!Oreohhs3 Feb 21

Feb 6 Episode VIII title released So Lucasfilm has just released the title for the next installment of the Star Wars saga: Episode VIII: The Last Jedi. Considering how short-changed Hammil was by Ep.

Feb 4 RIP John Hurt Whether you knew him as Caligula from I, Claudius, Winston Smith from 1984, Kane from Alien, Ollivander from Harry Potter, the voice of the Dragon from Merlin, the War Doctor from Doctor Who or any of his many, many other roles... A legend has fallen today. I'm going to have a John Hurt marathon today and tomorrow. It seems a fitting tribute to a wonderful actor to watch his work and remember him well.Monstrum3 Feb 4
Feb 3 Naruto, shonen jump or Kishimoto fault? I think, as a casual naruto fan, it's a common consensus that the show takes a huge dive after the pain arc, which makes sense, naruto finally gained the respect of the hidden leaf and therefore ended his goal of wanted to be accepted, that only left the naruto sauske arc to end, but then they padded it with that pretty dreadful ninja war arc and i think we can all say madara and...idk moon lady? were way less interesting villains than the akatsuki, I personally think nothing was going to come of tobi he was comic first. I think shonen jump, much like they did with Toriyama and dragonball, told Kishimoto there is no way he's ending one of their biggest seires, that's when i think he had to start pulling things out of his butt, there is no other explanation imo. what do you think? who caused naruto to be drug out? do you think it was too drug out?Grumar1 Feb 3

Feb 3 Any guitar players out there... What's your favorite axe? I'm not exactly sure if this is the best (or appropriate forum) to post this in, but I'm tired of trying to find a perfect one somewhere, so I figure why not. If anyone gets unhappy with this being posted here, obviously mods can move or delete... Anyway, as for myself, it's hard to say if I have a favorite really. I've owned and played a mexican-made Fender Strat ever since either '03 or '04, and I used to have an Epiphone Les Paul Studio, but I sold it in favor of some cymbals for a Tama Rockstar drum set I bought from my uncle a couple years back. I love my Fender Strat, but obviously with other guitars, there are different sounds and tones to be heard. I love Les Paul style guitars, but my biggest issue was with it staying in tune. My Fender Strat stays in tune nearly any time I either bend strings, or even use the tremolo bar, at least if I don't overuse it. I have 5 springs in it, so the bridge stays flat with the body all the time. Now with the Les Paul, it went out of tune ANY time I bent a string. I saw a video recently displaying which guitar(s) stay in tune best, and the Epiphone ones are ok, but not perfect. I'm looking to buy a PRS SE 245 sometime in the future. I got a Jackson DK2M earlier last year, used since any newer models don't have the aesthetics that I wanted. The one I got has a Jackson-made Floyd Rose tremolo on it, as well as locking nuts. It plays pretty good, but yeah, changing strings on it is quite a pain... But in the long-run, I'd REALLY love to get my hands on a Mosrite. I'm just upset and sad they're no longer in production, or so it appears. I understand the founder passed away back in the 90's, but I feel like why stop because he's gone... Leo Fender is gone, that didn't stop Fender from making guitars. Same with Orville Gibson. I've read in places that reissue models were being made, and one person said "only in Japan", so, I'd love to find a reissue model, but I'm wondering where I'll find one and for how much. So, if I ever get roughly $3-6k, I'll see what I can find. Just sad that nobody can find them for less than that. Although it's like with my younger cousin, he wants to get a Travis Bean with an aluminum neck, but those are no longer made new, and go for similar prices that I'm finding with old Mosrites.Oldskool2 Feb 3

Feb 2 Covers you like better than the original Today I was listening to some early motown and got thinking about covers. Usually we like the version we first heard, but sometimes the cover is the big thing. Like All Along the Watchtower, it's a Bob Dylan song but people usually identify with the Jimi Hendrix version. Anyway, here's some of my favorites: Back In My Arms Again - Genya Ravan It probably wouldn't make my top ten albums of all time, but Urban Desire is certainly in the top 100. Genya is so unknown but she is a rocker grrl who was there since the beginning. Original Supremes Version Heard It Through the Grapevine - Gladys Knight & the Pips Ok, so this isn't an original so much as another version that was released before Marvin Gaye's iconic release. I find it more fun to sing along. Here's Marvin's (get those raisins dancing!): Wish you were here - Wyclef Jean This is best with the intro "Bus Stop" Ecleftic is another one of my top 100 albums of all time, along with Preacher's Son also by Wyclef. From humor to serious subjects I just love this album. I know a lot of you will hate this, but "Whether you listenin' to hip hip-hop/Or you tuning to rock" music is always evolving :) Original Pink Floyd: Feb 2
Feb 1 Jokes Three vampires walk into a bar. Bartender asks the first one what he wants, and with a swish of his cape the vampire replies in a cheesy Transylvanian accent, "I vould like a pint of bluuuuuuud!" The bartender repeats his question to the second vampire. The vampire swishes his cape and in a similar cheesy Transylvanian accent replies, "I vould like a pint of bluuuuuud!" The bartender asks the same thing of the third vampire. The third vampire also swishes his cape and replies in yet another similar cheesy Transylvanian accent, "I vould like a pint of... plasma!" The bartender nods and says, "All right. That's two bloods and a blood lite!" (Get it? Blood? Blood Lite? Sounds like Bud and Bud Lite?)Urugao37 Feb 1
