holy shit.... so they actually recorded the bankruptcy call....well I'm in the beginning of it now....dis gone be good 🍿🤣

 

hahaha this is killing me----you can hear the occasional "BOOOOOOP!" sounds on the call....and just about anyone that's worked an office job that's done conference calls knows what that is---it's people joining into the call....and sure enough that's the situation; I was crackin up when they finally realized it, and I think it was his attorney that said ---"sorry ....there's.... 60 people on the line right now..."  and it keeps going after that...you keep hearing *BOOOP* as more show up to the call. 🤣

It's a strange thing, on one hand, I'm one of those people that enjoys being at home MUCH more than "going out" or traveling anywhere....and I'm enjoying it now (*Working at home = I got in 175 pushups yesterday + my shadowboxing combos + some running!  It's also nice that when I got on lunchbreak, I'm really just walking over to the fridge, or going to another room to watch tv for an hour)... BUT I'd obviously rather have society back to normal.  I'd trade this "work at home" routine out for that without question.  I also don't think most people even realize just how close we are to total collapse.  It's really just 1 or 2 things away from pure chaos in the streets, basically...if these things happen then all hell breaks loose, I think:

  • Stores can't keep up with demand and close down, or close for other reasons.
  • Restaurants also close down.

Basically, once the most basic, important necessities like food and drink become difficult for the average person to get, then society goes right off a cliff at that point.

 

Premium Music HQ on point once again with the epic shit

Some of this stuff is perfect to work-out to....for when you want to feel superhuman..

sheeeittttt, i got a new one... a French show (english dub) simply called "VAMPIRES" is on Netflix now... I heard of this by way of someone mentioning it on a live-stream yesterday.  So far from the first episode I'm liking this.  The only negative I can see on this so far is that it's not looking like the vamps on this have a large array of supernatural abilities, but it's only the first episode I've seen so far... it looks like they at least have the basics of superhuman strength and immortality in play here, fortunately.

 

One I just can't get down with, that I was reminded of when searching for this show----The Vampire's Assistant.  Basically...it's all because of that dude with the giant meatball face.  I will never be able to take anything even slightly seriously if that guy's in it....I think that movie is a comedy though, right?  When I'm looking for cool vampire-related shit, comedic goofball silliness is NOT what I'm looking for anyway.

 

The main girl on Vampires is looking FINE, by the way.... mom is kinda milf too...oh and the older sister isn't bad either, but the main girl looks better.

*In this story, vampirism is by way of genetics, apparently....or at least that's what the girl's mom is telling her (so possibly a lie..?)

 

edit---well, one disappointment is they don't heal from sun-light damage.
MAJOR disappointment though--- episode 2, Mom says she ages "5x slower".  Nahhhhh bruh... see I hate when they stray from the normal lore formula of what a vampire should be.  The most basic thing is that their lifespan is indefinite.  Outside of getting killed, they would theoretically live forever as long as there's some living things to feed on.

 

---------------

I saw this coming...since of course I was likely the only person that gave a damn about V-Wars.  October Faction is canned too.

The cruise-ship industry takes one hell of a hit on this quarantine situation....and who in their right mind will still want to go in the near future? (well, probably a LOT of people, even before a vaccine exists....because most people are stubborn and kinda stupid.)

 

One of the good things about life is that at least there's still this giant backlog of entertainment to get to....so much that there's hardly enough time for it all.  Currently, I still have a tough decision between watching more of a certain youtube/twitch Vampire the Masquerade series (L.A. By Night; they're on season 4 at this point), or getting caught up on Netflix shows, or watching any of the movies in my collection, or playing any of the huge list of games I have on Xb1 and Switch... I'm probably nearing the end of Doom then moving on to Eternal right after that, but I'm also still hooked on Diablo 3 and a 2nd and 3rd play-thru plans for Vampyr, and there's new stuff to do and unlock in Gears 5!

 

There's some ridiculously fine woman in LA by Night playing a character "Ib" (Lasombra vamp! Hell yeah), played by Noura Ibrahim... but surprisingly I can barely find anything on her online...I always figured most people who are even a little-bit famous for anything have an instagram page, but not this one for some strange reason... it's like she's purposely flying under the radar....quite a shame 'cause goddamn she's gorgeous .

More cool powers/lore from the Vampire the Masquerade world… abilities of the Obteneration/“Oblivion” discipline, a specialty of the “Lasombra” clan (one of my top picks out of all the vamp clans; I'd jump at the chance to be one).

 

Shadow Cast : The vampire summons a supernatural shadow from Oblivion, one which they control and can only be destroyed by sunlight. It allows them to use other Oblivion powers through it despite the presence of light, and casting it on somebody during social conflict intensifies the Willpower damage that victim suffers.

 

Aura of Decay : The vampire’s connection to Oblivion manifests as an aura which spoils food, poisons water, wears down structures, and kills living things with their mere presence. (this reminds me of Barragan's ability from the Bleach manga! OP as hell, actually)

 

Stygian Shroud : The vampire spreads a suffocating darkness across a large area, muting sound and suppressing all other senses. Those within the shroud (except the user) suffer a total blindness penalty on all actions requiring sight, and mortals suffocate. (also in Bleach---Tousen's bankai?! Was Kubo secretly a VTM fan, perhaps?)

 

…and that’s all just a small taste. It would be nice if human civilization wasn’t on the edge of collapsing so I could at least enjoy Bloodlines 2 before the world ends.

 

edit---another cool one

Tenebrous Form: Transform into pure shadow that can only be harmed by fire, sunlight, or magic

 

^BRUH.... SO goddamn awesome, these powers.

holy crap man... I'm finally hearing the details on this Quibi thing thanks to John Campea talking about it right now.... this shit is such a joke...

  • * short-form content...like 10 minutes or so?  Am I understanding correctly that you are getting "pieces" of shows?  What the hell?
  • * It costs money per month
  • * STILL has commercials.
  • * You can only watch this on mobile devices.

They've GOT to be kidding with this shit. 🤣

this girl in the netflix show Vampires is goddamn HOT as hell,
https://www.imdb.com/name/nm4205963/?ref_=tt_cl_t6

 
(ha, and it's perfectly fine as you can see she's actually 23 years old...sheeeiiittttttt) I'm definitely keeping tabs on her.  I'd eat the hell out of that.
I forgot how many episodes it is but I'm nearing the end of it...I'm not one of those to binge a whole season in a day so it usually takes me a while...I've only seen the first episode of this Tiger King people keep talking about.  Anyway, so far it's keeping me hooked, though I'm not liking how the vamps are portrayed that much in this show.  They don't have superspeed and apparently aren't even immortal (just a lifespan that is about 5x that of a human)...and I guess damage from the sun can never be healed (1 character got burned a bit at the start of the series in a flashback, and she still has that burn mark in present day)

 

Well, looks like I don't have to bother watching that last Star Wars film Rise of Skywalker... this guy mauLer has an in-depth analysis/ROAST session that goes over every ridiculous point...so far it looks even worse than I could've imagined 🤣

Another reason why sliding glass doors are one of the dumbest "home decor" things ever invented.... certain birds are apparently too dumb to realize that "other bird" they keep seeing is actually their own reflection, so they just bash into the goddamn glass over and over forever due to being a territorial son of a bitch.....it's over and over again all day long, presumably for the rest of their life if you don't take measures to prevent this nonsense.

So yeah...whoever invented "sliding glass doors" for homes... I'd like to see that piece of shit get punched in the face as hard as possible for a few hours.

 

 For a while, I was hoping he would eventually just KO himself then at least that's 1 way for the constant noise would stop...no such luck there, of course....he's too close to cause any significant self-harm.  I've removed 1 "liner" type of curtain which wasn't even my idea to put up anyway....but I'm already doubting that will fix the situation....he's probably just taking a break at the moment....I'm sure he'll be back in a minute.

exxxxactly.  The only major curse with vampirism---- I'd really, really miss being able to enjoy normal foods.  One of the great simple pleasures in life is a good pizza.....or my other favorites---> burgers, grilled chicken, steaks, lasagna, bacon, gyro sandwiches, baklava, etc..... and oh yes...that garlic bread.  The real tragedy is losing out on alllll that good stuff. 😩
