Random Bullshit / Re: ECHO... Echo... echo...
« Last post by Chucky on Yesterday at 03:14:14 AM »
I've had to dial it back a little bit, myself. I chingered my shoulder a few months back and have been babying it since. Finally getting around to seeing a doc about it so we'll see what's going on.

Luckily enough for me I do a lot more than just lift things for exercise, and I don't need to exercise to lose weight... I mainly do it to wear myself out to sleep better.

Gonna have to 'bate with the off-arm for a while...  [*browwink*]


Well maybe now if she's flying the coop you'll have more free you-time on your hands. [*laugh*]

It has crossed my mind, though, with the amount of time that's passed since we've seen a lot of the old timers- how much has life changed for them?

There's a few I see occasionally through Facebook. I recently had "Seed" message me on Facebook, mainly to get contact info for one of the old members.


Sounds interesting... you've never made an update to the site that I didn't like before so I'll be curious to see how it turns out. Hopefully that sort of thing would be able to bring in/bring back some people. [*yes*]

It's a lot of work but the main thing for me is trying to get over my inability to be 100% happy with the designs I create.

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.

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*]

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.

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?

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.

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*]

Damn I think I joined this site when I was 14, I’m 31 now. That was over half my life ago. I’m almost as old as De was when I first joined. 😂

Jeez, I'm right there with you. [*odd*]

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.

My big issue is the timeline doesn't make sense. The beginning shootout takes place September 1973. Does Daddario look 39 in this movie?  [*laugh*]

Gore was pretty solid, though, and like I said, it probably ties with the 2003 remake and In the Beginning as my third favorite in the series.

The Hound of the Baskervilles (1959)

I slightly prefer the 1939 Rathbone version, but this is a rather solid film too, and in color. My one issue is that, as much as I love Christopher Lee, I don't think he's the right guy for the role of Henry Baskerville. Still a quality rendition of the movie. 8/10.

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*]
