    Moving Right Alolan - More Pokemon Go!

    Lol. After reading this, I just used my last remaining TM on my Machamp (89% IV). And it changed his charge move from Close Combat to Dynamic Punch.

    Moving Right Alolan - More Pokemon Go!

    And to be truthful, the TMs had just been taking up bag space for some time. I'm only just now starting to get involved in higher tier raids where having good moves is at all meaningful.

    Moving Right Alolan - More Pokemon Go!

    I burned a bunch of charge move change doohickeys trying to get Shadow Ball on one of my Mewtwos. Only to learn it's a "legacy" move.
  4. I watched for a while. And I noticed that during the long, long wait for the presentations, one of the French players (Matuidi, I think?) was over amongst the Croations, hugging and consoling them. The downcast look on his face as he left to return to his team-mates would have made you think he was on the losing team. He obviously realised how much they were hurting and genuinely felt for them. A real class act.
  5. Yeah -I was thinking Lloris had the golden glove in the bag. Not now.
  6. Or rather, his ability to tackle is severely hampered as they wouldn’t want to risk going a man down. A sensible substitution.

    SOLO: A Spoiler Story (contains spoilers)

    For me, both Force Awakens and Last Jedi had their problems - but they also had their awesome parts. Solo doesn't suffer from the lows of those two movies, but neither does it ever reach their highs. It's just a solid, fun, enjoyable movie. Oh... And I didn't really buy Woody Harrelson betraying Vision at the end there. The whole movie he'd been wanting to return the fuel to get his big pay out. So, right at the end, when he's likely earmed himself even more of a reward by betraying Han, he.. what... decides to take the fuel to get a big payout somewhere else and have Vision out to kill him. Why not just take his huge reward from Bettany? (And yeah... I can't rcall the characters' names. Jim something-or-other and... Dreisden?)
  8. I certainly got a "Billy is gay" vibe when watching it. I guess the first, very minor thing is when Billy is basically dominating Steve on the basketball court. But then he leans over him and tells him to plant his feet next time and draw the charge. So, he does seem to be offering helpful advice. Not a smoking gun, by any means. But that's followed by them standing naked together in the shower and Billy comments on how "pretty" Steve is. Sure... he says it in a cutting way - telling him "don't worry, a pretty boy like you will be just fine" in reference to the Nancy break-up. But regardless, he's still commenting on how pretty Steve is while they're standing there together naked. None of that was enough to have me drawing the conclusion that he is gay. But it had me wondering if he might be.
  9. I've seen speculation which, if true, would be considered a very major spoiler...

    Sense8: why...so...sensitive (spoilers)

    To be fair, the show states the exact opposite. He says that her reaction made him take a good hard look at himself and he didn't like what he saw. He wasn't just changing because it made her unhappy. Now whether you believe that was his real motivation or not is a whole different question. (Personally, I accept it on face value as the truth - as it aligns with what we've seen of his personality throughout the entire show. But I certainly acknowledge that I could be wrong there.)

    Attack on Titan (Anime series)

    26 weeks? I thought season 2 was only supposed to be 13 or so episodes? And I assumed it would be shown weekly. Is one of those understandings incorrect? 13 episodes is/would be a bit disappointing after such a long wait. But at least they would all be available to watch a little quicker. That's assuming they don't drip feed them out over a longer time-frame - which would be doubly annoying.

    Attack on Titan (Anime series)

    I'm not sure I can bring myself to watch this week to week. I think it would be too frustrating. I think I'll wait until I can binge it on Netflix or something.

    Marvel Netflix - Sweet Christmas!

    In that case, my opinion of him just increased a little. I'll watch. And I'm hopeful I'll enjoy it well enough. I figure, at worst it will be some fun, mindless comic book entertainment. And as long as it's not outright bad or boring, I'm ok with that.

    Marvel Netflix - Sweet Christmas!

    I can understand why it might annoy you when viewing the DareDevil show by itself. But when Jessica Jone, Luke Cage and Iron Fist are soon to follow, there's really very little point in trying to keep it grounded. In fact, having smaller scale powers helps the transition into the more flashy ones that will be coming down the line shortly.
