I am also working all weekend. Roasting hobbits takes a really long time... The orange sauce is the killer....

As a Brit, I will always be grateful for the sacrifices made by Allied soldiers during WW2. Otherwise, the world would not be as we know it now.

I have an RTX 3070 but my issue with RDR2 is not the graphics but the pacing. It's like wading through molasses and you can't save during a mission...

*Biohazard*, based on the reviews. I will certainly pick it up, but only when it goes on sale.

I already have a Switch to play a bunch of indie games from the PC world and there is no way they're doing a handheld better than Nintendo. This seems like an absurd moonshot, I'm not even sure why they would bother but hey I guess it will be interesting.

Same here. The Switch is so good I'm not sure anything out there can beat it right now. Portable, AND you can dock it to your 55 inch HDTV and use a real controller.

I have already contacted my Infernal Lawyers (Flywheel, Flywheel and Shyster) about this - it is blatant plagiarism. We've been playing this game in Mordor for over a thousand years.

Yeah... I want to see a lot of movies, but I'm probably not going back to a theater ever, assuming any have even survived nearby.

Just release your movies on streaming, without months long delays or added 'premium' fees... the landscape has changed, the horse and buggy market has crashed, we no longer wear whalebone girdles, etc.


I thought about this, and now that I'm fully vaccinated I will brave the new Bond movie in theaters. Strictly for research purposes - we nefarious villains need to study the opposition.

Mainly, the lessons appear to be: Don't leave them alone in a locked room, don't leave minions to finish the job, and if you have them strapped to a table with a laser heading towards their nads (looking at you, Goldfinger), finish the job...

So hard to find good help these days...

I have SR3 and SR4 remastered for Switch but have never fired them up. Worth a shot? I have a couple of hours free this afternoon. Thanks.

So I went to the grocery store - or supermarket if you prefer - and picked up some sushi while I was there - California vegetable roll if you're curious - and that got me thinking how long it's been since I've had some tempura. I freakin' love tempura. Anyone eat a lot of Japanese food? Anyone have tempura and really enjoyed the Hell out of it recently? I think maybe I'll get some this week.



My SIgnificant Other is from Tokyo by way of Connecticut and Ithaca, so yes, I eat quite a lot of Japanese food, especially sashimi. Her favorite is scallop sashimi, which when it's done right melts in the mouth. Tempura I can take or leave, but Japanese soups and stews (fish or seafood) are also really super good.

I recently finished Witcher 3 after about 150 hours - absolutely fantastic. Now going through Blood and Wine which if anything is even better.

Cyberpunk - I am playing it on a 3070 and it is smooth as butter but I just can't get into it. No idea why...

Installed on my girl's PC last night, there was no traffic, until for 1/5th of a second there were like 200 cars on-screen at the same time, then they all disappeared again. Like a jump-scare from a horror game lol.

It's weird, I NEVER had any bug that bad in my 80 hours of playing 1.0 at launch on my PC.
What’s her specs?

My hand-me-down: 3900x CPU 1080ti 16GB fast ram


Should have been fine, Slick - I think we all know you like your hardware. Kind of odd that the game is glitching on something with reasonable chops.

For us here at Barad-Dur the problem is different. It feels like playing 1999 Deus Ex all over again and even the trolls (limited memory) can't get over it. Maybe 3 hours in after 3 months on a 3070. Seems like a waste...

Y'all, I found it. The ultimate can of hash.

Well, Mrs. Burrito found it and ordered a case of it because that was the only way to get it.

Haven't had a chance to try it. That'll be tomorrow but I'll report back on the taste.

I like the look of that so much I may risk the wrath of MrsBlue and get some. Or maybe I'll just try to make my own.
Look, I get it you guys are excited. But seriously it's not worth eat sausage after the first 100 years, it starts to go bad.
I'm just saying, 1891 your pushing 130 years and it's gonna be a little rancid. Paperbag

Here at Barad-Dur, we have iceboxes and pantries that are rather old. Thousand year old hobbit jamon serrano is the bee's knees.

Oh, also (and pardon the double post), George Segal was one of my favorite actors growing up. If you haven't seen The Duchess and the Dirtwater Fox, do yourselves a favor:

Congrats Blue. I'm also now eligible and have been looking. Do be cautious with the Janssen/J&J vaccine though - my co-worker got that one and was in bed unable to move for two days afterwards (young guy, healthy but ex-smoker and a bit of a hypochondriac).

Yeah, I need to start working out again. As we get into the warmer weather I'll be outdoors building and planting stuff anyway. I'm planting a dozen hazelnut shrubs, 2 heartnut trees, and an oak this year. Did bloodwork last week and doc says sugar is fine but bad ldl is way up atm. No surprise there as I've been eating worse, not exercising, and drinking way more booze than usual over this past year. I imagine a lot of people are in the same boat.

Speaking of C19, chickity check it out yo....

Early tests are planned for a COVID-19 vaccine that can be taken as a pill, with no need for injections

Well that'd be handy. There stock is 10 bucks atm and it was 2 bux this time a year ago. Anyone know any biotechs that are worth getting in on atm?

Yeah, I don't like that pasta shape. I've always preferred capellini, or even spaghettini to spaghetti myself. For thicker noodles I prefer tagliatelle - mainly in fall/winter. Don't really do much in the way of bows, fusilli, etc. Though rotini in a sundried tomato pesto is just the best thing ever.

Although technically an undead wraith, I did put on 10 lb during COVID. Lost most of it when I went back to work, could do with losing the last 4lb to get back to 143lb which is Lord Sauron's fighting weight (haunting weight?). The extra poundage came mainly from inactivity and beer, I think - almost everyone I know drank a lot more than usual during the pandemic due to stress. The guy at the local liquor store said it was like New Year's Eve every day in terms of sales.

To lose the weight I have just skipped breakfast and lunch, and made sure to get 6-10,000 steps a day. And less beer, no liquor, and maybe wine once a week. Painful but it does work.
