You can also switch to Angry Birds between chapters. I'd like to see a book do that.

Did you see it? I've heard only positive things about it; if you saw it did you like it? I haven't had time to see it yet.

It's all right. Certainly better than the prequel trilogy. J.J. Abrams managed to make it relatable and not look like someone threw pastel colors on a green screen.

In my opinion, though, it is a bit too gritty compared to the original trilogy (it's almost as grimdark as Revenge of the Sith), and there are a few too many callbacks to A New Hope. Something's also off with the pacing. It feels like two movies crammed into one. It goes from newbie on a desert planet to literally blowing up another Death Star in roughly two hours, just like A New Hope, but it feels like there's too much stuff happening between point A and B - possibly because they don't just leave the planet and go somewhere else, they ******* leave and go back a bunch of times before they're finally done with the place.

And I know it was a requirement for him to be in the movie in the first place, but I did not agree with that scene. Expanded Universe and childhood fandom crushed utterly in 10 seconds flat.

ya i liked the movie, have seen it twice so far...

the new hope parallels are very strong, im hoping the y do not continue copying from the original 3 trilogies.

also when will people learn to make a death star that doesnt have an exploitable weakness?

Not too bad. Kinda tired, but can't complain. Got kid #3 on the way, due in June, so that's the recent excitement. Thinking I'm getting too old for this baby thing, but guess we'll find out either way. Should be fun at least. Smiley: lol

Mostly been playing Eve Online the last few months. Think I finally found an MMO I can stick with for a while, or at least longer than a month or two...

So what's the movie?

I can barely handle one six year old and some people are handling multiple spawn. Congratulations on the kid and the MMO.

245 until Deadpool. I guess trying to handle multiple kids is more difficult when you're also a big dumb kid.

One 6 year old sounds like enough excitement for any sane person. I'm envious. Though the good thing about more is they tend to watch themselves after a while. When you hear one yelling at the other to do their homework and not whine so much you know you've done something good in life.

So what'd I miss here the last couple of months? You and Joph still holding down the ever-shrinking fort it seems?

Congrats Xsarus. Now you have someone you can cook for.

Congrats protein and good to see you again. How many is that now? My sister-in-law has three, and a friend of hers has five. Her friend told her that two is three times a hard as one, three is five times as hard as two, and after that it's all the same (for the reasons you mentioned).

Congrats lolgaxe on the Deadpool movie finally being released. I've heard lots of good things about it.

Noodles sound like they'd be fun to make. Also spouses that love to bake are awesome; so many delicious ways that can go well.

We recently got gifted one of these thingies, with a ton of accessories so we're learning how to use it. The wife has done a couple of things, and I've made it as far as shredding cabbage to make Sauerkraut. I may not be the best cook in the world, but I can certainly throw something in a container to rot for 4-5 weeks. First batch was okay, a bit salty, but still good. It all got eaten. Second batch is due out in about 2 weeks, so we'll see how it goes. Going for more time fermenting, and a little less salt.

I've got a copy of a family cookbook that came over from Sicily, and the scar from the wooden spoon that came with it on the back of my head. I tend to cook because my work schedule is more stable than my wife's, and it makes me feel less guilty that I occasionally have to leave her to take care of everything alone due to military.

My wife and I are kind of the opposite, although I don't mind cooking I love baking. The way I see it, you can be a bit more creative when cooking. Although you can also be creative when baking, only in a "big picture" kind of way - if you don't measure exactly and follow time and temp exactly, your peach/apple pie is going to taste bad. My wife's recipes are all in her head: "you grab a handful of this, throw in a scoop of this, add some of this, and put it in the oven until looks cooked." (I'm only exaggerating a little).

Yes they do. I've considered getting it, but I have a hand pasta maker that's really so easy to use and works really well that I haven't bothered. I did get the meat grinder attachment, which I'm planning on using to make burgers using the Heston Blumenthal technique.
