    Rewatched THE COUNSELOR by Ridley Scott and Cormac McCarthy. I am reaffirmed that it is one of the best films of the 2010s. Go watch it. The consensus remains that it sucks, so you'll be one of the cool kids who liked it before people realized it was amazing (like Bladerunner)

    Trailer doesn't do it justice. It is written by fucking McCarthy, guys. No Country For Old Men, Blood Meridian, ya know, McCarthy.

    I haven't, but I will. The trailer is pretty bad but this post has piqued my curiosity.

    Mine as well, but at the same time Ridley Scott kind of fell in my eyes when he did with Aliens worse than Lucas did with Star Wars at second trilogy, so this movie is kind of low on my list.
    If you'll watch it, it would be cool if you'd let me know your thoughts.

    Watch it! Let me know what you think! Also Prometheus is good and if you disagree you're wrong!

    Have to move for work. Was buying a house, took a lot of work, called in favors, nearly closed - the HOA was too jank for the lender to agree... Ok, applied for apartment, cost 260 bucks, now they said the old tenant is no longer moving out... system got me kinda :uncleted:

    AY YO there's this open source game called EmptyEpsilon, and it is pretty great. It is a starship bridge simulator, so each user controls one system (like weapons, for example) and you all have to communicate and operate the ship. There's a group that plays on Sundays - I joined last Sunday and it was dope. Game is free, runs on windows, lunix, and android.

    USN has details if anyone is interested.

    I've been getting into baseball history recently, so I looked up the radio broadcast of the 1950 world series. Neat little time capsule. Anyway, the comments on youtube are mostly boomers reliving the glory days. Here's my favorite excerpt:

    That was my big passion back then. I was twelve-years-old. I collected the entire set of Topps baseball cards, in MINT condition. They must be worth thousands. I suspect my second wife, 'Runaround Sue,' sold them. I just loved the Brooklyn Dodgers and Ebbets Field

    Rounaround Sue :CryLaughing:

    I love boomers because their stories are interesting. Their vernacular is also interesting. They drop in a lot of sayings and euphemisms like this, I guess cause they had a childhood where they read loads of books and crap.

    It is always so endearingto read such small stories from someone's past, feels like taking a quick glance into years far away and long gone. Much more relatable than how history is being teached at schools.
    Today one of my workers got into a road rage incident with some lady. It escalated to her following him to the job site. She flashed her pistol so he went back to his truck and got his gun, then they blocked him in. She calls me at the office to complain and I'm like "bruh wtf" trying to talk to her and my employee while they're in a fucking standoff until the cops show up. It all worked out tho lol. What a Monday.

    Yo idk if any of y'all care about baseball - but the Cincinnati Reds have been fucking FUN the last 2 games. Back to back walk off wins. New pitcher's debut was great. Another new rookie hit his first homer in his second ever game. Just absurdly fun baseball - the type of game you're lucky to catch once or twice a year - they've had 2 back to back. They're playing again right now, so get hype! Woohoo! Go Reds! (They usually fucking suck so this is a good time)

    Anyone else watching Yellowjackets? I generally dislike TV and won't invest in a show until it is 100% finished because I'm so pissed at my favorite shows being cancelled (raised by wolves :PepeHands: ). Anyway - my wife watches TV and I just kinda tune in or tune out, but this fucking Yellowjackets show is GREAT. Highly recommend.

    Whatever genre Lord of the Flies is. A team of highschool soccer girls in the 90s have their plane crash in the Rockies. They're stranded and shit goes down. But is also shows the survivors in the modern day and it has its own plot. I won't spoil it. But it rules.

    Idk man :pirateflag::antiUNFLag: It is on Showtime, but idk if they have their own streaming service or if they partner with amazon or hulu or something.
    ONE Friday morning fights - drinking coffee at my desk - playing Golden Sun on my phone - just thriving and getting paid for it. Should be illegal what I'm doing.

    And technically it is, I guess lol

    >The Russian parliament is set to meet in order to assess the situation with PMC (Private Military Company) Ryodan following mass detentions across the country.

    >Over the last week of February, panic spread through Russia and Ukraine about a mysterious subculture of teenagers wearing black hoodies adorned with a white spider, supposedly starting massive brawls in shopping malls.

    You worded it like Ryodan are a actual terrorist organisation or something, in the link you posted Ryodan are just a bunch of teenagers while the anti-ryodans are real thugs with far right ideologies.

    I didn't word anything - I was posting quotes from the article. The fifth one being

    >Ryodans are passionate anime fans

    it is another news shitpost. I post absurd things from the news as my status sometimes lol
    At work I often have the news playing on one monitor. This made me think of how the news was always important in cyberpunk anime and had an interesting aesthetic. Shows like Ghost in the Shell (SAC), Neon Genesis Evangelion, Cowboy Bebop, etc. Now that Vtubers are I thing, it got me thinking - are there any global news vtubers? Or financial news or anything? If not - this is going to be a huge market. I'd much rather hear Mikasa read me the news.

    Looks like Japan used to have this on the PS3, actually.

    Yeah it's now confirmed he's been arrested.

    The arrest regarding the leak will get more coverage than the contents itself, which more or less confirms west has some boots on the ground in this proxy war. Advisors most likely rather than active fighters, but still, not a good look.

    US and UK have been fairly open about having intelligence on the ground - that isn't news. The news is exactly how many there are, their names, their locations, their activities, etc. Which tbh, the news should not be reporting on. The glowies are actively scrambling trying to get everyone tf out of there - any more news giving away specifics can only hinder their exfil. This is a massive clusterfuck, but it doesn't reveal that we're up to anything out of the ordinary. It confirms what everyone knew - it just gave away specifics.
    Not going to share any of it here - but the MI5/CIA leaks over the last 48 hours or so have been MASSIVE. Names, birthdays, and exact coordinated for dozens of active agents in Ukraine and Russia. By all indications, these are being leaked by some edge lord on /pol/ for shits and giggles. They took photos of documents and uploaded them, clearly still being in their barracks or on base somewhere. This is not a some well done operation, this is some idiot brazenly posting extremely sensitive information from his phone.

    At least that is my best guess at this time. Really insane to see - glowies are going to be captured because of this. The leaker will very likely be caught, given how sloppy it all was, and I think one could make a good case at prosecuting treason.
