Strange that F13 is the final descendant of Lum the Mad's back in 1998. Good for us for lasting so long.

I finally watched this. Holy shit. I see why it bombed.

It's not a bad movie. Let me just start with that. It's not BAD. It's just not good. The first criticism I had of the trailer was that the whole movie felt unnecessary and nothing I saw in the movie changed that. They overexplained some things that were completely unnecessary (why he's name Solo) and yet completely ignored explaining or showing things that might have been interesting, like Solo's time in the Imperial Academy. Half of the movie looked like utter, dark, drab shit, as if the director of photography used the worst expired film stock he could find. Lighting was awful. The character never had much of a complete story arc. I'm guessing by the ending that this was meant to show that Han always had a "heart of gold" mentality but the events of this movie made him cynical and jaded, and we would see more of the evolution of the character into the scoundrel we see at the beginning of A New Hope. Since we're only getting the one movie, however, his arc doesn't pay off at all. Lando was fine but the entire L3 droid made no sense. I think that Lando's crush on the droid and her whole "droid rights" schtick was meant to be a joke when the original directors were trying to make a comedy, and that Ron Howard was brought in to unfuck that part of the story and just didn't even bother, he just probably cut out some jokes. Either way, it was an utter mess, as "droid rights" makes no sense in the Star Wars universe unless you literally write an entire movie/trilogy around it. The escape from Cthulhu part in the middle felt padded and the entire heist on the mines really didn't make much sense either.

I know why this movie existed and it was because Disney thought they could drop any old turd with the Star Wars name on it and it would make tons of money. Luckily, people didn't buy it.

Speaking of random RNG luck, I got the Horadric Hamburger and the rainbow sword in one rainbow rift.

I bought it early on and gorged on it for a while. I got my money's worth.

For some reason I picked up Stardew Valley a couple weeks ago on the PS4 and binged it a little over the weekend. Not sure it will keep me after everything started getting too hectic, I like the slow pace of the early game (common for me amongst games like this, even minecraft). Menus/controls are wonky with a controller, but it works well enough for casual play.

Still digging The Golf Club 2, though some of the green designs are real ball-busters (ohoho). Not a great golf game, but a good enough (and cheap). Wrapping up my 4th franchise year as the Browns on Madden, 4th superb owl. I may need to bump up the difficulty a bit. It seems like I'm struggling and then I throw a couple 80+yd TDs, so I'll probably just pull fly routes from my call sheet for now. And of course good ol' Rocksmith.

The new 'easy' forms are about to spark a whole shitstorm. Fun fact, libraries melt down between now and May, people lose their minds about tax-related stuff.

Already a lot of unhappy people. Our Director has almost been in tears because her carefully balanced personal finances are utterly screwed by the tax changes. Though to be fair, she leverages to the hilt and walks a knife's edge of debt that I would not be at all comfortable with (I did it for 6 years before getting out of debt entirely and hope to stay here, the country is a hot mess of debtors...it's not a normal condition!).

Will those hidden walls be visible on the minimap from the safe area, or should I be wandering around randomly in the darkness flaring? I've never used a flare nor seen a hidden wall.

You can either venture off into the side corridors while you're following the cart to a node or go back down a corridor you've already lit up and venture off to the sides.  You'll see an icon on your mini-map when you get close to a breakable wall.  I recommend having 75% Dark Resist and 150% Light Radius for your flares at the depth you want to explore.  The longer the distance between two points the better (higher chance for breakable walls).

We are lucky to have a fairly good local newspaper that's still independently owned and operated. Really great for local news and events.

For the last two years, the EiC has been rewriting any AP article about the president or current 'policy issues' (whatever the stupid of the day is). I stopped my sub last year, but I missed the local content and like the idea of a real local paper (and it's only a few years until the guy retires), so I resubbed.

First wacky edit was about the shutdown, how Clinton and Obama maximized public suffering and Trump has done everything possible to make life better for everyone during the shutdown.

So much koolaid. We either skip the front page national stuff, or gird ourselves and read it for the lulz.
