Staples logo reveal
was just reminded of the staples logo reveal pic.twitter.com/dqnHPqdWqI— em 🏳️⚧️🍂 (@cooIboobs) October 25, 2022
I mean, sure, that's one way to announce your new logo.
Despite all my rage, I'm still just a storage.
A wild Greavard appeared! Had to make a quick animation for the spooky pup! pic.twitter.com/IHFY8F9Ko6— Sindorman: commissions are open! (@sindorman) October 25, 2022
The nostalgia levels are off the charts with this one.
The last scene in the #HouseOfTheDragon finale was essentially created by Matt Smith.— out of context house of the dragon (@oochotd) October 24, 2022
“it was Matt Smith, in a turn of fucking genius, who offered the idea that Daemon should give Rhaenyra the news while we're both walking away from camera, towards the fireplace.” pic.twitter.com/Tz9hK4AtPc
House of the Dragon was amazing and if you haven't checked it out, I definitely recommend it.

Epic Games' dead MOBA Paragon is being brought back by another studio
Epic Games has granted South Korean studio Netmarble permission to use all of its former Paragon assets including its name in the development of a new title, Paragon: The Overprime. The game is described as a "free team-based TPS Action MOBA" that'll operate as a live service game. For more on Paragon: The Overprime, check out the game's listing on the Epic Games Store.
Wanted to share a few clips that I like starting with Orlando Jones as an AI that remembers everything from the 2002 adaptation of The Time Machine. The film is one of my all-time faves, I highly recommend it especially if you like a good sci-fi adventure.
This remains one of the most unintentionally hilarious (and bizarre) King adaptations I've seen next to the likes of Maximum Overdrive. The film and its bad CGI meatball monsters never fail to make me laugh.
... this goes to 11
The entire scene is pure 11 out of 10 comedy gold.

lol that Staples logo reveal
That drumming duck made me realize I forgot to take a edible, and that little kid Samurai was on Britain's Got Talent: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XUEX1Ar5Hqg (2 and a half minutes)
lol @ Langoliers clip, I guess Australia is always safe
Holy shit I even missed the Langoliers clip. Love that thing when it first aired. Was cool seeing a deranged Balkey.
I got tired of looking at his tongue in close-up
You know, people shit on that movie but when I watched it when I was about, I dunno, 12 or something, I fucking loved it.
I enjoy the new version of Time Machine I'm sure more than is average as well. But can you place a particular reason why? I love the way it plays with the terrain and the effects used. I loved the vignettes as he stops at points in the future. I think I forget most of the rest of the movie though, just that he saves the girl who helps him and I think her daughter?
Also, I choose padre. Keanu does a better job in that movie, he just does.
Completely mesmerized by the Turbo Outrun commentary.
The face on the guy with the duck makes me believe that he was just handed the duck and the drum with little to no explanation and that he did not actually believe what was going to happen until he was in the middle of it.
