    I got a promotion with my job yesterday. I'll now be making more than I ever have doing this. $60k a year to do something I barely got paid $35k for at my previous company. The best news is that I'll have Saturdays off, and get off by 6-7pm on most days. I don't have to go to bed like some retiree anymore. So hopefully by the end of this year. Battlefield 6 will be out... it will be good... and maybe we can get the band back together @Sledgstone and @Strider Hiryu. Even though Strider is PC master race. I'm sure it'll have cross play. My gaming life has really suffered these past 3 years.

    As someone that studied Nazi history extensively. The Man in the High Castle is a fascinating show on Prime Video. I was expecting it to be fully about what would happen if America and Britain lost the war, but its more about the multiverse... so its like alternate history and quantum leap combined? I definitely recommend despite its slow start for non-history majors.

    Season 3 was good. Seemed a bit oddly paced at times with random time skips. I'm guessing thats to try to compensate for covid and the kids growing up faster than the show.

    PS Plus Games

    Well, the Playstation app was giving me crap earlier, so I added the free games through their website: https://www.playstation.com/en-us/ps-plus/this-month-on-ps-plus/ Turns out you can also get a free Tiger skin evolution dlc for Maneater with this link.. which for some reason isn't shown as dlc from the actual Maneater store page: https://store.playstation.com/en-us/product/UP0115-CUSA14519_00-TGRSKN0000000000

    Coronavirus disease (COVID-19)

    The China Buffet I use to eat at has been permanently closed since last year. I only like eating at Subway because their bread isn't thick. I'm annoyed that McDonald's brought back the McRib instead of it's seasonal eggnog milkshake.

    Coronavirus disease (COVID-19)

    Still haven't gotten mine. but my parents did. Maybe you'll get lucky and an actual respectable sub shop will move into that spot. Subway sauces are good but everything else is such low quality. They literally just put pre cut, sliced, Oscar Meyer meat on your sandwhich. I get that its cheap, but nah fam. I can't do it no more. They're making a profit off a $5 footlong, that just tells you what you're putting into your body when you eat there. If I'm going to do that, I'm gonna go all the way with the chemical goodness and hit that McRib.

    I marathoned Breaking Bad over the last 2 weeks. I really enjoyed it. But it had one of my least favorite cliches.... and that's when there are two characters, and they're never in sync with each other. One is always on the up while the other fucks it up. Walter and Jesse just couldn't keep it together at the same time the whole series. Saul Goodman was such a good character I marathoned what Netflix had of Better Call Saul after that. Kinda slow at times, and not what I was expecting.. but still a good watch as well.

    TheQuartering

    As someone who spends a lot of time watching Star Wars Theory (hey just cause I hate what Disney is doing doesn't mean I still don't want to keep up on lore) this is just bull shit. I didn't watch the Quartering video (in fact didn't even know he made on until you posted this, might have to watch it later even if I don't like Jeremy (his opinions are spot on sometimes though, usually with stuff like this)) but I watched SWT's response to Pablo's tweets (well his first one, seems he has another one up now that I didn't get to watching today) and it's just sad. Disney needs to nip this shit in the but and keep crap like this from happening. Fans should be able to react how they want (especially passionate fans like SWT) and not fear being ridiculed by those with creative power and power in franchises like this. Utterly bonkers this shit was allowed to happen (then again I'm sure now that it's blowing up Disney will swoop in and try to save face on this one). This reminds me of that incident with that female Guild Wars 2 dev a few years back. You'd think companies would be setting some pretty firm social media engagements rules after that fiasco.

    Fatman - trailer

    The movie "Fatman" was great. Mel Gibson is Santa Claus. Its a dark and violent movie. Lol. Assassin: "I'm here for your head fatman!" Santa: "you think you're the first?" *gun battle starts*

    Christmas Videos

    This thread is intended to easily find YouTube Christmas Videos. (Except for a furry animated film, Judas & Jesus, because of nudity.) Here is my unofficial #1 Comic Book Movie. Here is a trailer for a new one that I doubt will happen. Here is a parody of Rudolph by Flashgitz. Here are less offensive videos by Fennah. More singing. Winifred enjoys reading.

    The Mandalorian

    I tried the deepfake software a few years ago to see how it worked. It's interesting because you need a crapload of source material, basically face shots of the person you want to duplicate at every angle and facial expression possible. They are scripts that you can run that will auto grab and crop the person's face out of movie scenes and interviews off youtube videos. Then in the target video you want to override the face you select the person in it, reference the folder with the thousands of face shots and set the program to go. But there's some catches... the person you swap the face with has to look very similar to begin with, bone structure, eyes, check bones, eyebrows, etc. Because the final product is more of a face merge than swap. The closer the person looks like the image the more accurate it'll look like a face swap. That Luke one looked as good as it did because the cg Luke looked pretty damn spot on. Basically Disney could do the cg de-aging they do now and then do the deep fake as a final layer and it'd be perfect. If a deepfake person tried to put lukes face on qui gon jin in episode 1 it'd most likely look like ass. The other issue when I tried to make a deepfake was processing time. Because it's an AI script you have to let it do its thing. It takes an ass load of gpu processing power and alot of time. I have a gtx 1060 with 6gb ram at the time and that was pretty good, but even after letting the script run over night for a week 6 hours a night the deep fake I was trying still looked like crap.

    Coronavirus disease (COVID-19)

    I thought we were going to get that $600 one. I'm not expecting anything anytime soon at this point. And closing businesses seems so damn stupid to me even more now. I went to the grocery store yesterday and they were slamming busy. I'm sure Walmart was having one of the busiest days ever to. Those places were never shut down during all of 2020 and if they can be this packed now and that's OK, I don't see how having a small gift store/ small business or movie theater being closed is helping keep the public safe at all.

    Christmas Videos

    ^ that rudolph one wtf lol this is a winter themed kdrama called winter sonata. not necessarily a christmas centered one, but a thoughtful and innocent christmas gift plays a major role in the storyline. i first watched it 20 years ago and i still watch it even today. it was so popular in asia that japan made anime 10 years after it aired. it also improved korea’s image and relations among asian countries and tourism/kdrama/kpop flourished (called korean wave). its still popular, ppl still visit sites and houses that were filmed on. i heard they even built a statue where they first met. O_o basically two highschoolers fall in love and they were going to meet on christmas eve for their first official date. on his way, he dies in an traffic accident and shes devastated. the main event takes place 10 years after when she sees a guy who looks exactly like him. kdrama opening: anime version:

    The Mandalorian

    my guess is deepfake has been critisized for being used on political figures and porn sites so idk maybe disney wants to keep their squeaky clean image or something lol. or maybe they have a contract with some cg programming companies that they cant get out of. but yeah its their loss for not using it bc it looks really good and has a lot of potentials, especially now that star wars want to backpeddle from disaster movie sequels and throw fans back in timeline
