Out of the Blue

Sure enough, I managed to escape watching the Oscars last night (thank you Anne Hathaway!). I did, of course, walk the red carpet beforehand, as I can't resist the paparazzi. If you missed it, the designer I wore was Levi Strauss.

it's actually based on feeling Hathaway knew more about her scammy boyfriend than she let on

She did drop him like a rock. I'm a little surprised how quickly that little piece of history seemingly disappeared.

Yeah, I don't understand the lack of her at Blue's house, either. Hell, I'd watch her in an infomercial.

I have no problem with Anne, I find her delightful (though I'm irritated she never calls me).

As I said, it's MrsBlue who takes issue with her. I called this arbitrary, though this is not as capricious as some of her celebrity prejudices, as it's actually based on feeling Hathaway knew more about her scammy boyfriend than she let on (though I don't think that's based on anything in particular).

But hey, anything that keeps the Oscars off the TV is fine with me.

Good to hear. I am liking it too. Wonder how much it'll cost when it is out of beta.

Apparently it will be free to play, with microtransactions for the extra goodies (gold). Apparently it will be 10$ for 2500 gold, which isnt too shabby at all. The premium account is the same price, with it we will get access to the premium tanks (not the most powerful tanks in the game but according to the fourms good XP/credit earners) and extra 50% XP and Credit bonus from every mission.

Not *all* of us youngins associate Arnold Schwarzenegger or Captain Raspy Voice with the true Batman.

Of course not. We know the true Batman is Kevin Conroy.

@nin
Off work as our business is in the cbd which is badly damaged, they say we should be able to retrieve our cars from it & assess the premises in 3-4 days. (This will be depressing as stock is everywhere)
Will go from there & see if we will eventually be able to trade from town or have to setup a temporary premises.
I have a funeral to attend today, a guy who cleared a falling building only to go back in to help a trapped woman, an aftershock went through & a concrete block landed on the back of his neck.
Driving around the city is a war zone, silt built up everywhere with streets up & down like asphalt seas, your constantly diverted & dust thrown up by the traffic makes it feel like your in a a desert.

I stared at it for a good minute or two, thinking they'd used the color of the logos to make a bat symbol somewhere, yet I couldn't find it...

yeah, I had to look at it for a minute before I noticed it. I suspect younger folks would be looking a lot longer... before finally giving up cause it makes no sense

Anyone see the last episode with Archer's alcoholic child? Was too funny!

I agree, that was one of the better ones this season.
