Random Bullshit / Re: ECHO... Echo... echo...
« on: Yesterday at 03:28:45 AM »
My friends and I used to go out all the time... camping, hiking, bar, etc. Met plenty of new people and girls that way but over the years (especially after lockdowns) all they really want to do now is go out to eat just ourselves. And then they wonder why everyone but me is getting fat. [*laugh*]

The last couple of years of bullshit really did seem to have done quite a number on most people.

I was making good strides a couple years ago. In January 2020 I started hitting the gym and by around May/June the same year I had lost around 60lbs. Unfortunately, put most of it back on throughout 2021.


Picking up now at least? Sounds like you are getting a bit more motivated with the site... hobbies are always a good morale boost.

I think it was a combination of stress, lack of sleep and depression (mostly stemming from putting all that weight back on which I worked so hard to lose). Though for the past two months I have been trying to get back on track to start shedding some of that weight again which has probably helped in motivating me more with the site because Jiggy and I were absolutely slaying it with our YouTube content in 2020 when I had lost all that weight.


Honestly I'm surprised that you've kept the site around for as long as you have... most people would have just closed up shop long ago. I definitely appreciate the tenacity. Were you planning a complete revamp of the site, or something more along the same vein but with a facelift?

If it weren't for the fact that I got married when I was 19 and was a father at a fairly young age (btw, my daughter turned 18 today), I probably wouldn't have fallen off so many times as I did. There were just times where I had to focus on life over everything else but I never really wanted to move on from the site.

It is going to be a pretty big revamp. Reviews will of course be a huge thing as usual but with a much more diverse way of rating movies. There will be a lot of video content and also a revamped implementation of the fights. We can also branch out into a lot of other genres. Horror will always be the mainstay, but I think technically any movie could be reviewed and discussed, kind of like a Fight Evil (horror, thriller, action etc) and Fight Everything (drama, comedy etc).  [*browwink*]

So did you ever narrow down what the issue may be, Chuke?

Nope.


I'm doing the same old, same old- same old job, tons more hours. Kind of the opposite of you guys. Too few people capable of doing what we do effectively and efficiently, so the extra work just gets piled on to the few of us that are around... and even more work on the way, too. It's nice for the bank account but absolutely terrible for the social life. And that doesn't even take into account that the next semester of school hasn't even started up yet.

Seems to be chronic ongoing issue with me... workaholic I guess. If I'm not keeping myself busy I go stir-crazy. Shouldn't really let that be an excuse to get out and socialize... but I'm not necessarily the most social guy in the first place. Compound that with if I don't have direct plans with my friends or some kind of "mission" in mind, I tend to not bother going out at all. Doesn't help that most of the chicks nowadays seem to be nut-jobbier than usual...

Yes, bitches be crazy these days. I'm glad I got married young because I can't imagine trying to date or socialise with new people given the current social climate. I can't even go on YouTube anymore without being bombarded with hardcore feminist and/or MGTOW content. It's like everyone hates everyone now.


I'd really like to interact more around here but it seems like every time I check in nothing gets posted... so over time it simply starts to slip my mind all over again. [*no*]

That shit's gonna change real soon. I am working on a new site, and yes, actually spending hours everyday on it. With the help of Jiggy, I'm bringing this site back to, hopefully, some of its former glory.

Texas Chainsaw 3D (2013)

Honestly, while there are some problems with this film, I had an okay time. It's below average, but it probably ties as my third favorite movie in the franchise. 6/10.

While plenty of people turn their nose up at it, I actually enjoy that one to some degree. And seeing some Alexandra Daddario bouncing titty action is always going to enhance any flick.

I'm glad to see that something I posted back in 2013 is still getting some action.  [*browwink*]

I agree with what was said there, Jason, I think I watched The Visit when it hit home video but it's been completely forgettable for me. As for It Follows, yes, that is a good one. I saw it in a small theatre back when it came out, as it did not get a wide release here in Australia, and I remember sitting through quite a few hair raising moments, I still remember that cinema experience even to this very day.

Btw, where did you pop out from? [*odd*]

« on: June 02, 2022, 12:34:27 AM »
I don't even know if anyone will see this but thought I'd post something to, I dunno, maybe see if there's anyone still floating around... and what better way to do that than with a super unoriginal, "what's going on lately with you?" type of post...


So as for me... I forget the exact date it happened, but sometime in late April my brain went into neutral and I seemed to have blacked out at work. I was in a group virtual meeting (I work remotely) with most of the employees from our small company that afternoon but I don't even recall 95% of what happened in those meetings, or if I even managed to finish those meetings. When I queried others an hour or so later, they said I did finish the meeting but I seemed quite blank at times. Like someone would ask me something and I may not have responded... something like that. Anyhoo, I ended up calling my boss also just to say that I think I blacked out. And once again, I remember very little of the conversation I had with him too but I think I do remember throwing some hysterical fit, like I was out of my mind... and then I couldn't stop crying. There wasn't necessarily anything to cry about... I just couldn't stop as I had no idea what was going on.

I think my wife snatched the phone out of my hands while I was talking to my boss and said she would call an ambulance for me. To which they came, did a few preliminary checks and then carted my ass off to the hospital for further testing. I had blood tests and a brain scan... nothing necessarily came about it. The doctors at the hospital and my GP both individually grilled me with questions about stress - so I guess that's their best educated guess as to what caused it. I have been referred to get an EEG done but I decided to not pursue further unless it happens again. So that was fun.

So not long after that, I did end up taking two weeks off work. I wanted to use that time to catch up on the backlog of editing I need to do for FE YouTube channel but I could never get my head in the right mood to get anything done. I just sat on my ass, and did pretty much fuck-all during those two weeks off. Though I did manage to kickstart my weight loss again, which will hopefully have some sort of mental benefit as I had been pretty depressed lately from regaining basically all of the 27kg (60lbs) I had lost back in 2020. Since 9th May, I have lost around 5kg (11lbs) and showing no signs of slowing down with that.

Anyhoo, I am happy to say that I have finally started editing again. I've challenged myself to edit one movie discussion per day, which is roughly about 1hr of work. So hopefully I can keep it up and clear that backlog within the next few months.


So, uh.... what's going on lately with you?  [*odd*]

How is this website update coming along, by the way? I'd imagine now you'd have much more headway on how you'd like to have it set up compared to now.

Quite honestly, the last 6-12 months sucked for me and it's been full of depressing procrastination, though Jiggy and I do meet up usually every 2-3 weeks to watch a movie, discuss it, review it etc and discuss whatever else.

I do want to get things moving again, and I think the past week has shown some new glimmers of hope that I can get back on track.

Hey, welcome back. Every now and then someone from the past returns... maybe for a day or two, but then they disappear again. Which I get... but it would be awesome for some oldies to come back and stick around.

Jiggy and I are working on new review formats for the website and for YouTube... so this basically means the website will be redeveloped. Not sure how long it will take, but we do meet up regularly and make progress with each and every session.
