Cameron: [after following Dwight to the chicken coop, before sunrise] Is it dangerous to take the eggs in front of them?

Dwight: Yes, very. You really need to stand back because these are killer chickens.

Cameron: I was just asking you something I didn't know.

Dwight: Which is fine. And, you learned something. But, it was kind of a stupid question so you're gonna get made fun of a little bit.

If this is what you call "making fun" then you're about as funny as this comic.

(Hey, being a prick is fun!)

Yes, it literally is.

I'm fine with you being a prick btw, I'm more curious about your strange hobby of wandering up to people and and telling them things about the things they are saying and doing. Do you stand behind the lady in the store, "YOU'RE BUYING MILK!" and just narrate the things that are happening around you?

If those things are needlessly toxic, negative and condescending, then yeah... I usually say something.

my right ear really enjoyed this

Yeah, sorry for posting a shitty recording... Wanted to include a video though

I'm just about finished with 'Panzram: A Journal of Murder', which I've totally devoured up to this point. Might be my favorite true-crime work.

Panzram is the epitome of nihilistic scumbaggery but also has an articulate talent for writing. Reading his words intimidated the fuck out of me. Plus he was born a few miles from my hometown in Minnesota, exactly 100 years before me. I find that personally fascinating.

Includes thousands of vine-length clips from some of my favorite horror movies (and plenty of satanic panic/straight to videos). Edited together to form a schizophrenic commentary on the dark lord himself. Highly recommended if you have ADD or an affection for amphetamines.

School me, but is this related to The Great Satan at Large, or is it unrelated?

Not directly related. I can't recall, but I wouldn't be surprised to spot some clips from "At Large" in this

I love both equally, but in this case I’d say Alien. I love how claustrophobic and terrifying the film is although I do love James Cameron’s approach to the series.

They have near identical plot points and structure, except Alien is horror and Aliens is action. Basically the same movie as a different genre. I have half a mind to call Aliens a remake... (both are great though!)

Red Letter Media says it best

I'd rather read them, I've yet to really see anything that encapsulates that kind of horror accurately - apart from various movies of people spiralling into mental illness.

I think cosmic horror is extremely hard to encapsulate in a visual form... Lovecraft's terror relies on you imagining what a vague, vast and omnipresent monster might be. Seeing someone else's depiction of that would be like seeing the shark in every scene of Jaws. The unknown is always scarier.

25 years later and I still remember Mr. Rogers telling me this

The super volcano is a great idea. People don't use that enough in apocalyptic fiction. (Except for maybe The Road, which is one of the best, but even then it isn't explicitly stated.)

I was pretty surprised when I heard Leadbelly being sung while I was creeping through the woods. Following it to a camp where people were dancing over corpses. Dem boys got the blues...

It's a fitting song for the game, too. "In the pines, in the pines, where the sun don't ever shine..."

Though it is a Leadbelly song, that's not who is singing in the game, I would love to know who is because it's a good version

For sure, I like this rendition. Sounds just like someone singing it by a campfire

how do you get companions to drive cars? whenever I get in the passenger seat they get in and don't drive they just sit there

You can also set a waypoint and they will drive to that location.

I can't recall another game that makes me pause and stare at scenery like this one. This morning I ran up a mountain side through thick forest, couldn't see shit. Crested the top and was suddenly overlooking a picturesque lake, surrounded by a bowl of trees with a river snaking into the far distance under a sunset. These views are so endless it's easy to take them for granted.

I'd love to see more of what you find, the game is a work of art.

Uncharted 4, GTA 5, (especially when it snows during xmas), and far cry 3 are also really nice.

Never played Uncharted, looks like I need to check it out though. Haven't played GTA or FC3 in years, and I remember having moments of awe at the time.

But I'm really in love with temperate forests and mountain ranges, especially in real life. Bob Ross type settings are paradise

His most recent content is a thorough collection of over 40 different videos, each roughly 10 minutes long. They cover races, regions, Daedric Princes, Divines, and important people/monsters. Very binge-worthy.

Cool, I love learning about tes lore. I’ll have to check it out. From what I’ve seen so far though, I think I still prefer Shoddy Casts lore series. It’s edited a bit better and feels more professional.

Am I the only one thinking "holy shit?" The rest of the comments here are the equivalent of saying "meh." What am I missing?

This is one of the craziest set of circumstance I've heard in a while... Kinda morbid to think, but I'd imagine true-crime writers are already writing books on the topic

The Mongols also killed a countless number of Muslims and tried to conquer the Islamic world

I love that name for her! The goddess Sif was known for her long golden hair. I'm happy to see this Sif managed to grow all of hers back.

I'd highly recommend The Tao of Pooh and The Te of Piglet by Benjamin Hoff.

Milne stuffed a bunch of deep philosophy under the surface of a children's story.

Oh don't be silly, Milne was not a Taoist. That is someone else applying their belief structure to a completely different thing. Sure it might be interesting and fit really well but that certainly was not the intention of Milne.

see more

I agree, and didn't mean to imply Milne was a Taoist. (I don't think Hoff does either) It is easy to connect the lessons and virtues that Milne authored to all sorts of beliefs. I was just trying to say deeper philosophies can be found other than a dumpy little bear having simple minded adventures in the woods.

I'm the passenger in a car driving from Albert Lea to St. Paul. Stuck behind two snow plows. The salt they are dumping doesn't compare to some of these threads.

GOD DAMNIT I wasn't planning on crying. Craig Finn is such a fantastic storyteller. The hold steady will always hold a special place in my heart.

For sure, someone recommended The Hold Steady to me a while ago but now is the first time I've really listened. This song chokes me up, shits too real.
