Just in time for hurricane season! :lol:

On a more serious note, I would say Florida is one of the best states to live in (although that can depend heavily on what part we're talking about). Warm weather year-round, plenty of things to see and do, and no state income tax! Congratulations on the job.

I love you daddy, That unreleased Louis CK movie, was actually pretty good.
Too bad the script of a pervert kinda hit close home.

A little bit too much Allen in the secondary character, and in style, but overall hit a lot of the louis ck "moral seeking" type of humor.

I'd recommend it.

Does it still count as 2D if the bride is rendered in 3D?

Why is there so much hate about PUAs ?
I've seen the game super seducer, and the stuff is mild as they come.

The sad truth about it, it's that is basically self help/improvement for shy guys that lack social skills.

At the risk of sounding unconventional or cool by Dojo standards (hey, when has that stopped me), but i just cannot get enough of The Greatest Showman. Its a shit movie, it really is, especially when you have the likes of Bill Condon at the writing helm, along with jenny Bicks... so i have to question who had any sort of final say so here... but its just such a sensationally great movie for someone like me who looks for an experience, and feeling in a movie that differentiates and separates itself from the crowd.

The easiest way to do that is a musical, yet no one seems to churn them out like Rodgers and Hammerstein did almost 40 years ago... So whats the problem? Its like its became its own suedo-parody of itself, but modern day musicals like Moulin Rouge, Chicago and Dreamgirls were not only showstopper cinema successees, but also oscar worthy movies. Even the most recent La La Land is an Oscar winner!
And thats what makes this movie something else. Like i said, its shit. The story of P.T. Barnum is barely even covered in the story, i mean its a pure broad stroke if ever there was a definition of the meaning of broad stroke, which REALLY destroy the movie, and deserved of its 50% average score in general critique.

But...

They have done it again. I would go as far as to say Benj Pasek and Justin Paul are getting as close to as The Sherman Brothers did with their Disney scores, in terms of modern day songs with easy to remember lyrics that you will already know halfway by the end of your very first listen. Its a very simple concept, to start mellow or medium, then to raise upward and upward in keychanges to a grandioso finish, but Jesus does it make your hairs stand on end, when delivered by the likes of Wolverine himself, Hugh Jackman, and Zak Efron.

Dances numbers accompanying the songs are right on the money, as well as the set and costume design, and barring some Michael Gracey lack of bravery in shots, i gotta say, this is one of the most infectious soundtracks to a movie ive ever heard. My Dad, Mum and Sister have also seen it, as well as downloaded the soundtrack, and at the very least, it was great to hear UK film critic Mark Kermode record a second review to say the words, "i was wrong", in response to his first review of the movie.

Still a shite movie like.

(and apologies to all of the posts I've missed that I need to reply to. They will come soon!)

After a month of quitting smoking cold turkey I bought another pack, and I got 4 in a couple of hours (the first one tasted like shit).

I was smoking ~50 per day for almost 10 years, I had to quit, and I really understood that it was more of a psychological/anxiety thing, but also I wasn't able to sleep more than 3 hours per day (that TBH I was quite enjoying).

I'm going to throw them out, what a stupid vice.

I tried, but I'm used to take big breaths and it made me cough.

Also, there were a lot of news about the batteries exploding, and mine was getting quite hot, so I just left it.

I think they're illegal here (don't ask me why though).
