I don't even see him.

EDIT: Oh [expletive], he cut his hair. I see him now. I thought that was John Lester, until I spotted John Lester, so... I'm kinda with Derwood on this one.

Re: The Video Game thread

I considered the SteamLink for PC game streaming since I play most of my stuff off of there, but I also have games that aren't. Because of that I've been considering the NVidia Shield, but it's awfully pricey. Maybe when I get my next Scrooge McDuck check I'll splurge on it.

I know a lot of people like the "Parents" episode the most, but I really really liked "Nashville" and "Mornings", mostly because the comedic chemistry between Aziz and Noelle Wells is pretty spectacular. Plus those episodes have moments that are very relatable and were ...

Re: The Video Game thread

For anyone interested in doing something similar, Xbox 360 controllers also work great for this, especially if you have something with a little more horsepower than a Raspberry Pi running the games and you can step into N64 or PS1 ROMs. What do you need to use to make this happen? I use my old lapt...

Im always tempted by the 4Ks, but then I just assume that what I'm seeing is some demo reel and not like what actual movies will look like on it. What do blurays and sports look like on a 4k? Is there really a hugely noticeable difference? One of the positives on the TV I got was the upscaling is r...

Bartman was no different than any other time in history a fan has reached for a foul ball. This was just in a pressure situation so it's exacerbated to the nth degree. He did the same thing any of us would've done, but it was him and not us so he's the "bad guy". If Alou hadn't reacted the...

Re: Arrieta: Consider yourself lucky he lets you cheer for him

Was going through old hard drives and found scans of old baseball cards I collected about 8 years ago and found this card that I now, in hindsight, should've kept. Whoops.
