    MIP: Ghost Protocol 7.5/10 (Is everything 7/10 these days?)

    I thought his career was toast years ago but he is good at what he does. He's a weird dude. I think I would be better looking and more successful if I had that kind of focus/discipline in life. I didn't find Pegg's character as annoying. The whole story is silly but suspenseful and fun. I might watch more MIP movies.

    Cruise should've spent the last ten years doing nothing but MI movies back to back.

     

    Next year he's going to film two in a row. Smart move. He's not a spring chicken anymore.

     

    One is supposed to have something to do with space. Bring it on. I can see his team hijacking a rocket to get to the ISS.

    Congratulations to Greta Thunberg for being named Time Person of the Year. 

    Jesus wept.....

     

    We've stumbled headfirst into an Idiocracy and I see no way out.

     

    Our culture has reduced itself to worshipping Down Syndrome teens who pontificate about world issues they don't even understand.

     

    If a correction doesn't occur in the coming decade...even if it takes a Hitler type to correct....I want the clathrate gun to fire and just wipe us out.

     

    I can't stand the constant idiocy anymore. There's no escaping it anywhere.

     

    Cure or kill....

    Has a Daddy Mac/Kris Kross joke been made yet?

    I don't think so and it's hard to believe that it took this long for a mention.

     

    I hated that song when it came out but it's not that bad. There were certainly worse one hit wonders back then.

     

    One of those guys is dead...I don't know if it's Mac Daddy or Daddy Mac.

    The good and the bad. 

     

    Finished eating dinner last night and the waitress told us our bill was paid by another customer.  They left a note that said “Because we never saw you on your phones and we never heard your kids - dinner is on us. Thank you. “ The Bill was probably about $80, so that was a nice gift from a stranger. 

     

    Reminds me of the time a few years ago when a friend and I were waiting on a drug deal so we went into the local pizzeria to get something to drink and shoot the shit. A bunch of people were in there and every single one of them had a phone in their face. I started being more observant and basically this was the case everywhere, including situations where people would be more social in a pre-smartphone world. It blew my mind every time.

     

    I notice it all the time now of course. I'm so glad the world wasn't like this in our youth.

     

    The place it really puzzles me is an amusement park.

    Your friend is a serial cheater, yet his gf comes crawling back everytime.  Cause he's an asshole. Girls LOVE assholes.

     

    I've never understood this. Ever.

     

    Whether I was a nice guy or a raving lunatic in the equation, it always perplexed me.

    Cheese. Mushrooms. Bacon. Ketchup. And a big spoonful of peanut butter. That’s all you need. 

    Remove the mushrooms, replace them with avocado, half the time substitute A1 instead of ketchup and it's perfection.

    When you consider that hardcore GNR fandom has probably dwindled down to the thousands, worldwide.....that makes us some of the last fans standing. 

    Not a chance in hell it's thousands.

     

    Hundreds.

     

    Spanning all the forums, the hardcore base is down to 300-500 tops...that's including the occasional lurkers. Remove them, it's barely scraping triple digits.

     

    Hell.....online media outlets don't even bother lurking at the forums anymore. To the rest of the world, leakgate made as much noise as a mouse pissing on cotton.

    Yep. And if it is Elon Musk at the forefront of human progression, we really are in trouble. 

    Watching what the Musk and Bezos types do in the coming years will be a real indication on which direction Civilization is headed.

     

    Elites buying property in places like New Zealand isn't the red flag some people like to perceive it to be.  Maybe a bit worrisome...but they've always done that shit.

     

    It's when they start pulling their resources out of their vanity projects that people can start to wonder if we're about to go off the rails.

    Ya, there’s a few different releases. Depending on which label, US UK or Europe pressing, it goes from anywhere from 50 to 200 bucks

    The higher end is a misprint limited edition

    I'll do an archeological dig through my closet this weekend and see which one it is. 

     

    I also realize that's not how to properly store records....

     

     

    Funny thing though...even if it was technically worth a couple grand, it's one of those things you'd never get a buyer for.

     

    It's been years since I've bought any of that stuff but even the sellers had no real clue what to sell any of it for. 

     

    I had a lot of fun back then buying various collectibles of my favorite bands but let's be honest....this shit is just like the sports cards racket. 99% of it ain't worth a thimble full of fool's gold.

     

    I was into sports cards briefly in the 80s but wised up to that pretty quickly and thankfully before sinking more allowance money into it.

     

    Remember Jose Canseco? His rookie card back then was worth 80 bucks. How? Everyone and their Grandma had several of them. I realized then it was all smoke and mirrors meant to placate nerds and keep bubble gum companies in business.

     

    That card was worth a bag of dog shit as soon as another hot card came along to cause wet dreams for nerds.

    That’s cool.

    i actually have a vinyl copy of Live Era.

    its in decent shape also. I just want another, I’m always looking. 

     

    As as for the reissue, it won’t devalue the original pressing. 

    If your bro has an original pressing of Pulse, I’d gladly give him 100 or even 200.. that’s a well sought after pressing. 

    Hell man, if you are able to get an original Live like a Suicide, it’ll set you back a few hundred, but it’s always retained it value. 

    I saw one at a record show a few months ago in shitty condition for 250.

    I have a Bob Ludwig Zeppelin 2 pressing that’s in shitty condition, but will still fetch 100 to a collector.

    Basically what I’m saying is the original vinyl pressings will likely almost always retain their value. 

     

    A lot of times the reissues are 180 G , and are initially expensive, but hardly see their value increase like the originals do.

    everyone got rid of their vinyl, there’s simply not many copies left...

     

    i could  talk about this all night. 

    Its a very expensive hobby I’ve taken up. 

    Shit man, thTs why I bought Locked & Loaded

    Any idea what Elastica's debut album on vinyl is worth at this point? Probably not much as they're pretty much forgotten but I'm pretty sure I own the only mint copy still in existence.

     

    It's funny how when you get shit like this you're initially strutting around your living room like Ric Flair and then five minutes later it's tossed in your closet where it remains sight unseen for 15 years and counting.

    I had 2 Big Carls from Carl's Jr last night. Pretty impressive poop today.

    I've been meaning to try that but it always slips my mind. I ate quite a bit of fast food this week...

     

    Chick-fil-A

    Church's Chicken

    Nations

    Popeyes

     

    Maybe next time....

    That discord comment def sounded suspicious...

    I decided to do a quick check up on the brain trust here....

     

     

    The only thing I heard in reference to this game in the lead up to it is discord comments. Not really surprising or suspicious that I would mention it. I only realized after the fact that this is only discussed in PMs.

    Its weird and bullshit MIA just said hed be gone. Hes played before and could have told us prior to the game. 

    No I haven't played before. My Redding plans happened spur of the moment and I can't pass up making money to play an internet game that appears to be slow as molasses. I still don't see much happening and had I known it moved at this pace, I probably wouldn't have dropped out.

     

    I might be home by Friday night.

     

     

    Vote your conscience....
