  1. Gardening

    Tough choice! I wasnt able to garden yesterday but will be heading there in an hour and still intend to get my peas sown today. And hopefully today will be the last trip where Im taking stuff to my shed for the year. Edit: shoot I guess I mean last time transporting tools. Taking all my seedlings, 2 per day is gonna be... err, interesting.
  2. The Home Cookin' Thread W/ Recipes

    Happy birthday! Hope you have a great day and camping trip! That food sounds delicious, especially prepared like that. I really wanna do that now. That is living done right!
  3. Ah - ha, you were joking about other thread?! LOL, Because I was kinda scratching my head thinking 'Im a leftist millennial who holds radical political views and I started the thread, plus mocked the guy!' But if you do offend me Imma take you before State Supreme Court Justice Donald Greenwood. So watch yourself!
  4. Funny or offensive? *NSFW*

    Yeah, Liar, Liar is great too. I havent seen The Dead Pool so I just watched that scene. Hilarious in all the best and worst ways! At first I was wondering "what is this??!?" and then I realized I did have a frame of reference for it; Constantine Maroulis performing WTTJ, lol

    Dumb and Dumber is one of the greatest slap stick comedies of its time! But keep in mind that Jim Carey has informed the world that he doesn't exist, so you can't really have an opinion either way!
  6. Are you a nostalgic person?

    I hate that on a forum owned by a Canadian, Canadian spellings are often autocorrect to American spellings. Lens been happy to break down entire paragraphs of Britishism for me, wth no problem. He's certainly no Ratam, nether is Dies! But the English folks derailing threads is indeed very annoying. At least it makes sense in this thread since talking England is primarily nostalgia.

    Sushi is fantastic, so long as one doesn't mind having worms take up residence in ones gut.
  8. Would've loved to see him try and shimmy the podium up to the judges bench! "When Greenwood called Rotondo up to the bench, the long-haired and bearded son tried to bring the podium with him — noting it held the reporters' microphones."
  9. So, apparently this is real. Court boots 30-year-old son from parents' house New York state man told to move out and get a job; says he'll appeal An upstate New York judge Tuesday ordered a 30-year-old man to move out of his parents' house after they went to court to have him ejected. Michael Rotondo told the judge he knows his parents want him out of the split-level ranch they share. But he argued that as a family member, he's entitled to six months more time. State Supreme Court Justice Donald Greenwood rejected that as outrageous, the Post-Standard of Syracuse reported. Rotondo told reporters he'll appeal. Mark and Christina Rotondo brought the court case after several eviction letters offering money and other help were ignored. 'Here is $1,100…' The parents didn't answer a call seeking comment Tuesday and their letters, filed in court, don't give their reasons for wanting their son out of the house. They do tell him to get a job and move his broken-down Volkswagen Passat. "Michael, here is $1,100 from us to you so you can find a place to stay," a Feb. 18 letter starts. It goes on to suggest he sell his stereo, some tools and any weapons he may have to gain money and space. "There are jobs available even for those with a poor work history like you," the letter reads. "Get one — you have to work!" It's signed "Christina and Mark Rotondo." With reporters watching in court, Michael Rotondo sparred with Greenwood for 30 minutes, at one point refusing the judge's request to work things out directly with his parents, who were sitting quietly nearby. When Greenwood called Rotondo up to the bench, the long-haired and bearded son tried to bring the podium with him — noting it held the reporters' microphones. He then called out for television camera crews to meet him outside the courthouse. There, he answered their questions, telling them he occupies a bedroom in his parents' home, doesn't speak to them and isn't ready to leave home. He said he had a business but wouldn't elaborate. "My business is my business," he said. The judge instructed the parents' lawyer to draft an eviction order. Attorney Anthony Adorante said it would give Rotondo reasonable time to vacate. http://www.cbc.ca/news/world/court-adult-son-eviction-1.4673737

    Of course, you wouldnt want to send the produce with out proper quality assurances! I think theres actually something to it when the food is shared by all. A soup kitchen I ate at in my youth was frequented by 'regular' working folks and it just made it seem more mutual and meant everyone had a chance to connect. A ton of food? Thats really incredible! Put those kiddos to work! A peach cobbler as their reward. Today is looking good so far and sunny skies are forecast. Im hoping to have at least my peas planted by end of tomorrow. I cant yet step onto the beds because they are too wet and would compact, so it makes the digging out between them an even slower process. But all this rain is reassuring me that building up the beds higher and digging the pit is actually the right move, as much of a pain in the ass as it is. Then dent corn at other end asap since its a long season plant and then my first wave of tomatoes and peppers are dying to get transplanted and are taking over my home!
  11. Are you a nostalgic person?

    No I havent but I want to. Theres plenty of other clips from beyond episode 2 that I really enjoyed. It is weird though to have to pay for TY which is probably why Im dragging my feet.
  12. Are you a nostalgic person?

    Shoot. Yeah. I meant Cobra Kai. I havent seen that other one. Thanks! I have really liked what Ive seen of Cobra Kai on YT so far. I will correct m post.
  13. I agree. That critique is more than fair. I noticed that too. For me the issue was that the shots werent all necessary to tell the story. Im not convinced that the film makers portray them all as criminals, though. In the first video sequence dealing with a corpse, I thought that it was useful that they didnt sanitize it. That one couldnt only consume the documentary as entertainment. But it quickly went to a different place, with less and less dignified pictures. Sometimes they are only different views off the same general image. The rest of the content was enough to keep my attention.
  14. Are you a nostalgic person?

    As far as music and such, yes I am nostalgic. Its a handy trait to have as a GNR fan! Actually, its my understanding that when GNR came out a lot of musicians considered GNR to be cashing in on nostalgia. There was Talking Heads and all manner of 'rock music futurism' on the charts and people felt like GNR came along and set the intellectual progress of rock back by a decade with both retro sounds and lyrical content. Ive said in greater detail in other posts about my view that the music industry, having utterly failed to adapt to the online/digital age is currently using nostalgia as a tool to maintain a holding pattern until it can reorganize itself. It doesnt know how to develop artists to the extent it used to - and maybe labels just arent needed for that - so they are repackaging absolutely everything to keep the money coming in. As a person who holds the potential of culture in high regard, I would say this stagnation is weaponized nostalgia. Im nostalgic about many things like Christmas' passed, the endless summers of youth or the taste of a shorties cherry flavoured lip gloss. But that said "Make America Great Again" is also a celebration of nostalgia. Or as a settler I might be offered to buy a piece of Indigenous kitch which - case by case - may be based on a very twisted sense of nostalgia. IMO sometimes nostalgia is the height of cathartic beauty which affirms the awesomeness of life, which I would imagine is a biological thing. And sometimes its a bold faced lie with sinister and manipulative goals. PS: hope I wont be misunderstood by @NostalgiaGoddess! I love Cobra Kai so far, if that helps to clarify! lol
