    Godzilla: King of the Monsters

    Meh. I'll wait for cable. In fact, I'll wait for Toho's response... I finally got around to watching Shin Gojira just a few minutes ago; and all I can say is: "Godzilla is God!"

    The Incredibles 2

    Took the kids to see it the other day. I must admit, I went in feeling pretty skeptical, thinking Pixar had long-since missed their chance to do a proper follow up to the original; was kinda like.... But I must say, I was pleasantly surprised. As sequels go, it was pretty, well--incredible. It was well written; entertaining enough to keep the kids in the audience engrossed pretty much the whole time, while still layered enough to keep the parents from being bored into a coma. Hehe, I had to stifle the urge to yell out "That was totally wicked!" at the end of the big climax. That isn't to say that there aren't, erm, issues though. Just like with Syndrome, with this story I'm not totally convinced that the bad-guy's intentions are all that, well--evil. If you listen to what Screenslaver's actually saying during the takeover broadcast, you may find yourself thinking: um, this guy's actually making a legitimate point. Overall, this one gets a thumbs up. Like a lot of Pixar's other films, it's good enough to see more than once.

    Deadpool 2

    What a laugh riot! Juggy totally stole the movie for me. When your theme music is: "You can't stop this motherfu**er, Holy sh*tballs," you know you bringin' the sh*t. And Zazie Beetz; what a cutie pie! I love a woman that can kick my ass. --Spike Spiegel LOL, man--fu*k the Academy, if Reynolds doesn't get an award for his death scene.

    Aircraft Super Thread Mk.VII

    Not sure if it goes here, but... WHY THE FUDGE aren't more people aware/excited by this?!? Holy sheep, it's like something from Marvel comics or a James Bond movie made practical (more or less). All that stuff from the "world of the future" type exhibits from World's Fairs of old is finally coming to pass.
  6. I for one have waited many moons for a release of the MM1 version of the Pursuit Special. But I've got to decide: drop a couple hundred bones on a much-coveted model of my dream movie car? or dedicate the funds towards a shock tower brace for the 1/1 XB in the garage, so's I can brace up the chassis and move forward with metal surgery? Dammit; not having disposable income sucks. Knew I shouldn't have pissed away that $$ on that damned Kalashnikov... I suppose the closest we'll ever get to a diecast version of the Knight Rider's stolen HQ would be to pick up one from Classic Carlectables and kit-bash it, as they also make some kick ass diecast Aussie musclecars. I managed to pick up a c-carlectables XAGT (Moffat) in 1/18 from a Canadian site, Linpin Holdings I think was the name--and at what amounted to wholesale pricing to boot. I think they're no longer able to distribute diecast models of Aussie Fords due to some licensing issues or something, IIRC. ed: I dunno. Not to be a doubting-Thomas, but going to try to compose myself and take this news with a grain of salt. Just a little odd that no news/updates to be found at the websites for Biante or AutoArt on a MM1 version release. And I could almost swear, but if them photos in the orig post don't look like ones for some resin kits that were offered by a custom builder on evilBay a couple years back, for kit-bashing the orig MM2 ver.

    and from the Random Thoughts bin.... I was out in the back yard at me mum 'n dads the other day, and I decided to bide my time by picking up spent shell casings while I kept an eye on my son, as he puttered around learning to ride the old family ATV. It hit me with a subtle thud: OMG, I am country as fu*k. Lord, I'm like a punchline at a Jeff Foxworthy concert or something. ed: the clerks at the local sporting goods store pretty much recognize me on sight whenever I go in to buy more ammo; they'll usually greet me along the lines of "ain't it [the AK] fun?" Yes. Yes it is.

    Holy sheep, this could be bad for morale--in the services and for the general public... Navy instructor pilots effectively "on strike" http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/navy-instructor-pilots-refusing-to-fly-over-safety-concerns-pences-son-affected/ar-BBzmi4z?li=BBnb7Kz&ocid=HPCOMMDHP15
  10. Still bummed about the loss of Bill Paxton... Honestly, it's gonna be hard as f**k to take this movie seriously, knowing that James Franco and Danny McBride are going to be in it.

    Wow. Even in the few weeks that I've owned my rifle, I've come across some pretty staggering amounts of information about the possibilities for expanding the capabilities and the firepower of these and similar firearms. Learned about some pretty amazing--and scary stuff, like: bump stocks for AK's; binary firing systems for AR's... That good ol' American spirit of ingenuity & invention, and "creative interpretation of the rules" at its best, eh?

    It didn't take very long to figure out that one could treat into some very dangerous legal territory when looking at ways to modify/improve one of these--or AR style rifles, for that matter--things (I'm such a noob to firearms). While my state's statutes are (almost frighteningly) liberal on the definitions and requirements for "conversions" and ownership of such a firearm, it didn't take a whole lot of google page results to figure out that it's very different on the Federal level. It's oddly funny--no, scary is more like it--that certain parts like certain-types-of-springs, or an auto-sear are readily available for purchase to fit one of these. But apparently, if you even think about buying one, it will bring Johnny Law knocking on your door to take you away for a 10-year vacation at Club Fed. Needless to say, I didn't do much searching on that sort of thing... "oh sh*t, oh sh*t. Back button! Back button! Back button!" ed: Okay, I oversimplify. I should have stated: if you f' around and buy such a part(s) to convert a.) a rifle manufactured after 1986, and b.) if you are not a properly licensed/registered firearms dealer and/or manufacturer, and c.) you can't show that it's for demonstration/training for law enforcement or military personnel--and a few other key factors--then, yes then you would be quite well and fully greased and f'ed.

    Hehe, I shall try to enjoy it responsibly. I'm finding though, that like any other interest or hobby, there's a great deal of potential to get carried away with accessorizing and such... "...ooh, that Magpul grip and stock would look sweet. Or mebbe a scope to go on that side rail? Ooh, or how about one of those drum magazines?" These things have the potential to obliterate your pocketbook, without firing a shot.
