Life's too short to listen to haters. In related news I bought a too-large denim jacket for that turn-of-the-millennium aesthetic. Nov 17, 2019 at 8:56 AM

        @Artasia Hong Kong. So if winds are from the north, we get air from the Guangdong factories. If winds are from the south, the air is beautiful.
        @Thad E Ginathom The 3M Filtrete stuff is great for house dust and maybe pollens, does nothing for PM25, which is the long term health damaging particle range. It's great for keeping the insides of computers clean too. I can post sensor screenshots if you'd like.

        The first few parts were well done, but towards the halfway mark it just felt like they lost what made the stories scary trying to tie things into a single narrative.

        Mostly just miffed the Pale Lady didn't scare the crap outta me like the illustration still sometimes does.

        Did some snooping around and apparently a full charge cycle helps some people. I know I've done just that at least twice so lacking confidence, but if the battery's fubbernucked then it's fucked regardless.

        Weeb is a shorter version of weeaboo which is a catch all term for anime fans outside of Japan.

        Psycho Pass was an anime with a lot of western sci fi influences. Season 1 was great, season 2 was trash, the movie was nice. Season 3 has me nervous.

        And eh, aunt gets a piano and we get a place to live. Asian families. Woo.

        I used to work at Gibson and used to hear the calls from the guys next to me from customers calling about pianos. Don't worry about getting it in perfect tune. Just get it in tune with itself to not stress the soundboard.

        @PTS the movie definitely has a lot of that. I'm in the psych field so was leery about gratuity there as well, but putting the fact that I'm easily irritated by how mental illness is often portrayed in cinema aside, the film was just great at pulling on the right strings to keep me on seat's edge.

        The movie is definitely a downer by the way, so if you're the type who has strong empathy definitely stay away from this one.

        I just happen to have a thing for films that take an effort to watch. They do a better job drawing you in, counterintuitively enough.

        It wasn't a great film but I'd be lying if I said it didn't get some genuine laughs out of me. Specifically referring to the shower scene at the hotel.

        The gang grew up and grew old, I think it was a realistic portrayal considering what's been established.
