@K: I hope you have fun watching t-- wait, it's going to be on Netflix? Well, I might just watch it then.

So, the news on my machine: both motherboard and CPU (brand-new) were affected by whatever happened. I was able to get credits on the shop that sold me the motherboard and got a simpler one plus some extra stuff I really needed for my unRAID server, and they arrived 2 days ago, but I was forced to buy a new i7-6700k for the equivalent of $500 with money I don't have as the package I sent by mail to Intel disappeared inside the system and they only paid a fraction of the value back... because Brazil.

Anyways, after all that bull I was able to get it all working... just to have my unRAID server die on me, and I don't have the money and patience to even think about it right now. At least I have been able to use VirtualBox to run unRAID on my new machine, so I still have access to all my files and some services for now. Just no data loss protection.

Looks like I'll have to work like a slave for the next year or so, but at least I have my machine of doom up and running again and almost complete, so it's less of a stress right now.

Part of me would like to live on that alternate reality... Sure, it is worse than our own reality but... is it WORSE than our own reality?

Oh, and I had already lost it when I saw Kylo Ren being presented.

I'll be the first to say that I didn't understand at first why all the laughter... then watched it again this morning... man, was I tired late yesterday or what?

Oh, and I finished watching the last episode of Thunderbolt Fantasy and it was great net positive. In fact, the japanese agree with me since they confirmed a second season already. Now I'm recommending it even if you think puppets aren't people (because you are right, they aren't, but it doesn't make it less awesome).

Finally, I was semi-forced to watch 2 episodes of Luke Cage back-to-back and... I'm going to watch the rest on my own when I have time to... Didn't expect to be interested in it either since Daredevil and Jessica Jones just didn't catch my interest and were dropped quickly.

So while I was fixing sheit other people made while out of town, I watched The Expanse and Designated Survivor for the first time while trying to unwind in my hotel room. Guess what I'm going to binge-watch this weekend...

I'm hoping they are as good as a whole series, considering the episodes I watched were very interesting. Kiefer Sutherland did a great job in the episode I watched of Designated Survivor, really does sell the "I'm just a guy trying to do what's right... until you piss me off, then I'll bluff the heck out of you, but I'll only do it a lil bit too late" role quite well.

The Expanse also has the kind of refreshing outlook on hard sci-fi that has been severely lacking these days. I'm here hoping it keeps going strong all the way through it. Well, I'll know all about it soon-ish.

So, what was the last series you guys watched that got you curious to try and then kept you its prisoner until you were done watching?

Usually when I choose to watch something I do so with the mindset of sticking with it cuz it looks good and I want to like it.

Fear the Walking Dead is something I thought I saw a "review" for and thought it might be stupid, might not be, and it turned out to not be. And it's directed by Robert Kirkman. I just dropped off cuz other things. Now I'm gonna get back to it...

There is this one Netflix supernatural series that I watched a while back because I thought "werewolves, yup sounds fun". Except it was terrible. I only kept watching cuz I thought "maybe it's a slow burn, maybe it gets better." It doesn't.

here's a rant about it:
It shoves the supernatural plot into the background until near the end and all throughout follows these two high school kids through their daily lives like a live-action slice of life that just drags and bores the hell out of you for 7-8 episodes. Oh, and there's a murder mystery, but that drags on as well. The end isn't even all that satisfying. There's little to no exposition, you're stuck wondering for a long time, "who's this, what drives them, what motivates them, why should I care". The events at the end come completely out of left field and aren't explained at all. And mainly the reason I don't like it is because it gives werewolves a reason not to change: it's super painful and it never gets better.

I would tell you the name, and maybe I already have told you all this before, but I want to spare you from what I've experienced. You've probably already guessed it by now. There's a second and third season. I'm not watching them.

I want to hang that on my living room even tho a lot of things would have to go just so I could attempt to bullshit people into believing I killed that thing... It doesn't even has to work even once, the idea alone just make me giggle like a lil kid.

What is it? It vaguely reminds me of Falkor the Luck Dragon from "The NeverEnding Story."

Wow, so that's where Angry Joe gets his theme. I've never watched G.I. Joe.

Wow, G.I.Joe has progressively less and less episodes per series. Guess I'll check out the serieses hosted by Adult Swim and the Hub. Gonna stay away from the movie, though.

Just thought it would be fun to share a picture of my hometown, which is named La Tuque. A tuque is something that looks like this:



I've heard it was called La Tuque because there was a nearby mountain that looked like one, but they had to blow it up to build the dam. Anyway, here's the town.





It's been taken from the north point of view of the town, looking south. The big space on the bottom right is all for the paper factory. You can see the town is quite small; just under 12 000 people live there. You can get anywhere on foot in an hour or less. But I prefer the next picture, since it was taken in winter.





That one was taken from the top of the ski slope in the southeast part of town, looking northwest. You can see the paper factory from there. I imagine it's the first time for many of you that you've seen snow. Incredible, isn't it? Shocked

I just had time to kill, and figured I would show you guys something different. I would like to see your own hometowns too, if any of you felt like it.

I've never heard of that hat being called a "tuque". First thing on my mind was "knit cap", which is actually a catch-all term.

Coimbra. I live on the outskirts, southwest across the river. It's about a 50 minute walk ~ 13 minute drive to the city center, give or take.










Bonus fun fact about the University:
