  1. If anyone, I have Fallout 76 (like a dumbass) and idk that I'll ever play it unless someone else wants to play with me.
  2. My roommate plays fortnite a ton and it seems like he never has any fun
  3. This is meant to be more of a question on how we can move forward (or if we can't) and find common ground between Christians and non-Christians - specifically Christians that believe in original sin. So recently, through conversations with my father, I've come to the realization that his belief in original sin puts him at direct odds with any belief system that doesn't believe in original sin. We touched on politics, economics, social norms, and some other things, but where we kept getting hung up was the tension between his belief that everyone is flawed and imperfect (therefore the world is flawed and imperfect which I find a ludicrous assumption) and my belief that humanity has the capability to do good and evolve. The reason this matters is because when issues arise he can just fall back upon the argument that "well no one is perfect and we're all sinners and so it doesn't really matter - the world is doomed anyway" as a way to explain away him not voting for so n so or not supporting such and such law. Honestly this and evangelicalism are my biggest and perhaps my only real problems with Christianity. I'm currently at a loss, and I'm also scarcely awake, but maybe someone else has thought about this too and can offer some advice or thoughts on how it might be possible to reach a better understanding or accord?
  4. New doctor who and yeah it can be a tad preachy but WW is great. [Spoiler ] text [\ spoiler ] But remove all spaces between the brackets

  6. Yeah nice! I started tracking all my media as well in about June and this year I'm going to try and track everything: podcasts/hours, shows, movies, books, new artists, full albums listened, and video gsmes/hours. Shall I post my list here as well? Shall we compare?
  7. I believe I've read Gardens through Hounds. I had to take a break bc they are weighty. I think I'll get back and finish the series this year. Hands down one of my favorite series. Erikson is a great author. Habe you just started them, finished them, somewhere in between?
  8. I agree I thought it was quite good. JoJo Rabbit is badass. It won't be for everyone but it is funny and sweet and irreverent. One of my 3 favorite movies to come out this year.
  9. So what do we expect from this movie? What plotlines do we want to see tied up? Will we discover the actual identity of Snoke? Rey's parents?
  10. You could also try your local, genuine, library I often forget how many cds and dvds are available at the library - it's pretty great.
  11. https://www.forbes.com/sites/paultassi/2019/12/12/the-mandalorians-procedural-formula-is-starting-to-grow-stale/ Saying what I've been saying but with more love for the show
  12. Word word Just the fake war between the children of the College and the Gyptian children where they throw mud balls or something. So far for me it's pretty good and I like the production value. I'm enjoying it far more than The Mandalorian and far less than Watchmen (to name two current series). I'm not in love with the Gyptians (John Faa looks kinda like a pimp which is weird) and I felt like they were pretty integral to the first book, but it's notba deal breaker. I also don't remember adults (especially Ms. Coulter) treating their daemons with such callous disregard all the time. But yeah, so far I'm still watching it.
  13. Yeah I just finished the same episode. It's been too long since I've read the books to remember the exact order, but I remember that Lyra meets the Gyptians early on (I think that "war" scene could have been dope) and mayyybe they don't know about what the gobblers are doing in the arctic yet?
  14. The world doesn't need baby yoda. The world needs a Sith Lord force-ripping someone's trachea Roadhouse-style.
  15. The whole "save the ____" schtick was driven into the ground years ago. I can likely list dozens of tv shows that have already done it. Beyond the the boredom it induced in my imagination, I just don't understand how it benefitted the story. Again, I don't understand what this show is trying to become. So far episodes 1 3 and 5 propel the story forward in a narrative arc clearly leading to a climax (and are generally good - although I wasn't crazy about 5), while episodes 2 and 4 are more episodic than narrative, and could be easily cut out of the overarching story. Also I guess I'm just bitter bc I'm tired of Star Wars being PG. I'm ready to see an R-rated show/movie looks like.
  16. Lol Imlad and I are at odds again. Episode 4 pretty much turned me off to the show. Episodes 2 & 4 struck out big, Episode 3 was pretty good, and Episode 1 was fine. I don't think Jon Favreau has a firm grip on what he wants this show to be and I think we really saw that in Ep4.
  17. Ahh I thought you were in on it. I would have been pretty mad and I was gonna say one the other players could have broken it up, but he built it almost perfectly.
  18. Lol what a road! Playing a little undiscovered islands with the seafarers expansion, eh? Who ended up winning?
