  1. I've used GIMP since about 2003, and the only plugin I ever recall using was the GAP animation plugin. Besides that, its basic setup was always effective for whatever I have needed it for in the past. In 2016 I bought the Affinity software and have enjoyed that as a Photoshop alternative since. I still use GIMP, although not as often because it takes a long time to open.

  2. With how full of other concerns this year has been for me, video games were about the last thing on my mind. I did however have the brief joy of playing through Three Houses during my leave, and it was wonderful on all counts.

    Sorry, closest I ever came was skateboarding.  (Back when it was a skate attached to a board.)  The area where I live is pretty hilly too, which makes things like skateboards that you can easily take off or dismount and carry uphill a better option.  That was long ago too.  These days I don't dare go near things like that!  :D



    I remember my skateboard! My brother was the rollerblader. We used to do it a lot, sometimes we would bike, too. Grab some change and try to out-trick one another in a race to the convenience store a few blocks away. We'd usually buy an ice cream or something easy to hold, then ride back as slowly as we could. ☺️ Thanks for the memory!

  4. I recommend this one a lot. It may or may not be for you-- it's a bit on the short side. Puella Magi Madoka Magica. Hear me out. 

    The anime's overall look is cutesy and looks like it's intended for a younger audience. It's not. It's very deceptive in this angle. 

    It's about a young girl who one day has the "fortune" of meeting a rabbit-like alien creature named Kyubei. He makes her an offer: she becomes what's called a Magical Girl and dedicates her life to fighting witches, and in return, he grants her one wish. Anything she asks for. Seems like a pretty good deal, right? 

    Over twelve episodes, Madoka mulls over what her wish might be. While she ponders, she meets other magical girls and is pulled into their struggle as the curtain folds around them. She learns the horrid truth behind Kyubei's motives and what it actually means to be a magical girl. Can't say much else here without spoiling it but it explores a very dark existentialism you might find appealing.

    It ticks most of your boxes here save for length. Great fights, dark, very well written plot, fight for survival (especially this), and strong bonds. I think it's still on Netflix.

    It was for both version when it got aired becuase of censor laws so naturally fans complained and now it's uncensored, kinda .


    I think it's even more ridiculous to censor blood in an anime whose MC sets a very bad example for how men should behave. Where do you draw the line? The MC full-handedly, unapologetically, and continuously feels at liberty to grope a 16-year-old's breasts without her consent and in a way she is clearly uncomfortable with. It's racy, sure, but look it's so funny, right guys? But the blood has to go. Hide the blood. Think of our sensitive viewers!

    I have no idea what is going on and I absolutely love it 

    Thanks for making me laugh 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

    Welcome aboard, next stop: never. You'll have to jump off with a parachute.

    Those girls should all be pulling on each other's hair, slapping one another, and screaming that he's going to be their baby daddy and essentially running off any competition that rears its head! (Yep, this is what happens when you have at least two girls fighting over a man.)

    All harems should be trailer park dramas.

  8. I don't understand what you mean by "non-anime". This looks like anime style to me. Netflix clearly got the rights to produce this adaptation from Toei, so no, it isn't a violation of intellectual property, either. A Netflix Original doesn't necessarily mean it was originally created by them- it means that Netflix produced the programme and owns the rights to stream it on their platform and nowhere else. You of course have all the power to stop using their service; that's your decision.

  9. I would find it more appealing if it weren't a "feature" of a gimmick school (MHA, Soul Eater, Harry Potter, etc.) It should be just an everyday average class, and they are put into a situation not unlike a game of Mafia where not only are they all trying to kill one another but they know there's a one, big bad villain among them which is causing mistrust. Now that would be so much more entertaining. 

  10. I have a Kindle I adore. I seem to have misplaced it, though. We are decluttering the house in preparation to move in the spring so I hope it turns up... In the meantime I am loving audiobooks.

    There are a number of other readers that also have built-in note-taking abilities as well, but the reader that I picked is one of those that actually lets you write in the margins of your e-books.

    That is seriously cool! On Kindle I'm able to at least highlight things, but if there's a note feature built-in then I'm unaware of it.

    And usually if Rightstuf replaces a disk, they ship it in a cheap clear dvd case, giving you only the disk and nothing else.

    I see that as exceptionally disrespectful to the customer. That's like complaining that your bag of cereal had a rock in it and being sent a replacement portion in a black Hefty bag.

  12. Your video isn't loading up on my end but... I do just have to wonder how she would feel if she found out you were sharing this without her knowledge on the net. I know I wouldn't be very impressed if it were me.

    you can't just drop something like 'goat pasture' and not elaborate 😂 

    So it seems to be just a difference in what we call front/back. I'd call the side the 'main entrance' is on the front of the house. So I guess I'd call the door to your kitchen the back door and the other the front door (unless they are on the same side). This is getting complicated 😂 

    It's all semantics at this point I'm afraid! 😋

    I dunno how much more there is to elaborate on... our property is sort of 'hugged' by our neighbours' behind us, and that land behind our house is all open space where they keep their goats, chickens, I've seen some mules, and there are also some Scottish highland cattle who often travel all the way to the fence line and let us pet their noses and stuff. Sometimes their goats escape their property and get behind my fence and eat my grass. The view from our back yard pretty nice; no houses behind us, just some open grass, the river, and the hill behind it. We are looking into moving across town to a bigger house possibly next year. If I'm going to miss anything about this place it may just be that.

    Where does a side door fit into all of this? I don't suppose it is a door that is actually at the side of the house, is it?

    In my case, yes. There is no door facing the front or back of the house. They are both on the sides. One of them is behind a fence with a porch for chilling and grilling, and leads into our kitchen. The other is a ways down our driveway toward the goat pasture and opens into our family room. The latter we tend to use as a main entrance, but it is still technically a side door. 😋

  15. Netflix has released another peek at this series with a new trailer featuring Henry Cavill's booty. It seems to be shaping up nicely and knowing Cavill is the supernerd he is, I'm looking forward to his portrayal of Geralt. Of course we know Geralt isn't the only thing we should be looking at. Anya Chalotra appears to be making a big debut here as Yennefer, so I'm expecting she'll want to put her best foot forward and leave a good impression since this will be the largest production she's been cast in yet, her previous appearances in web series and BBC docuseries being relatively low impact. 

    We also have a release date of 20 December for Netflix. Won't be long now!
