coincidence?

Yikes.  The timing of that and this post is suspicious.

I will neither confirm nor deny the accuracy of this analogy. 

Although the more astute among you will notice that I accidentally reappeared again in the SAME YEAR

I suspect we're going to have nothing but continued chaos, what with the constant covid interruptions.  The only way to prevent that would be to bubbleify the league like the NBA did, and I can't see that happening with the NFL.

In an unrelated note, some of the undefeated teams left are... surprising to me.

I pop in about once a year, make snarky comments on existing threads and then scamper off again.
What's not to love?

Thoughts?

Yes, I know it was a while ago... but I enjoyed the hell out of it, personally.

Books / Re: 2018 Reading List?

I am slowly going through one of my favorite series I read as a kid: The Chronicles of Prydain.

I'm also reading a ton of comics and graphic novels. It's been fun getting back into those. :D

I've reread that series every 3 or 4 years since I was a child.  Great stuff.

Why don't we have a 2019 reading list?  And why is Butch not on here?!?!

Hmm.
Okay.  Now I want to play.  Both Path of Exile and D3 again.
I will probably play more MCOC instead though...

I had a recent cull of people on my FB friends list and my criteria for not being deleted was "If I was passing through the city where [insert name lives] or vice versa I would want to and would make time to have a beer with said person". People who I wouldn't make time to have a beer with got deleted.

*checks facebook friends list for Supermatt*

Nice.   ;D

I hope lots of people don't take this approach.  I'll have like 10 friends left.  :D

I'm still alive.  Don't tell anyone.

It's not crazy for a company to want to get into both the Chinese market and the Mobile market, that part of this is fine (not "great news", but understandable).  This was obviously not the place for this announcement though, and arguably not the franchise to do it with.  You have a captive audience of your hardcore fans who are almost all PC players (across all Blizzard titles), and secondarily console gamers (though most Blizzard games come much later to consoles if they come at all), and you're making the next game in a beloved series exclusively not PC and not console.  On top of that is the deal with Netease which basically looks like Blizzard doesn't care enough to make their own game, so they hate their audience AND their own property.  They could've announced D4, D1/D2 remasters, a D2 patch, extra D3 content, or absolutely nothing and done better.

It's not the first time Blizzard has tied this kind of crap.
Somebody find a picture of Thrall.  I'm too effing tired.

I haven't played in a year or so.  Now I feel like I missed out on fun stuff...

 I really thought I had done another update to this.  Fail.
I think I may have lost track of some of the stuff I read too, but either way this is less than I've read in a year in a long while.  Didn't even make the previous one a week goal that we always used to have .
I did reread the whole October Daye series though, starting with Rosemary and Rue.  I like it even more -- enough so that the previous non 5 stars have been upgraded due to my current enjoyment of the book.  I reread a lot of stuff actually.  Sort of needed a bit of the old faithful.

Both Infinity War and Deadpool 2 are out on BluRay now.  I've watched both again.
I like both again.
