  1. Been trying to up my soap game. I use to be a body wash person, but after obtaining some skin issues because bacteria can fester on those scrubbers, I swapped to good ole dial antibacterial stuff and it cleared it up in 2 days thankfully. My issue with bar soap is it doesn't last long, and you end up losing the last bit of it when it gets small and thin. I've been doing a lot of research and came a cross a few brands.

    Dr. Squatch seems to be the most popular, but that's mostly due to marketing from reviews I've read. When it comes down too it, it seems to be overpriced soap that doesn't last long or even smell good.

    AoS (Art of Sport) is another popular one, the reviews are mixed, but it seems to be pretty good for sweating. I'll def give this one a try in the future.

    Duke Cannon makes gigantic bars of soap. It lasts a pretty long time and they smell pretty industrial/economy if you now what I mean? XD I can see myself buying it again. Right now I don't see anything beating it, but the size is a bit inconvenient to hold on to. XD It feels like it will break a toe if you drop it on your foot.

    Next on my list though is Viking Revolution and No 63. I bought a bar of each off amazon to see what that's about. I have high hopes for No 63 because all the reviews said it lasts a crazy long time. That's mainly what I'm looking for. The smell is less important as no soap scent lasts more than an hour out of the bathroom, and even then someone needs to basically press their nostrils against your skin to smell it. That's what Cologne is for. Which is a whole other topic.

      I've never heard of any of those soaps before so I googled them. Duke Cannon's website says "BIG ASS BRICK OF SOAP" rotflmao! XDXDXD

      Those soaps look good. I'm not well versed on men's products anymore. Mostly because once I find something that works for me I stick with it. Although I do want to get a new shampoo. Something that can hydrate my scalp. I have thin hair and such extreme low humidity in my house during winter that after a shower my scalp becomes almost bone dry and the skin almost wants to shrivel up and flake. I basically have to jump on a step machine and work up a very light sweat just to rehydrate my scalp. Wtf.

      I don't like body wash because the scent lasts too long. I use Olay bar soap with shea butter. I can buy a 6-8 pack at walmart for around $9. These bar soaps used to last forever but they got changed years ago to melt away like all bar soaps nowadays. The 6 pack are larger individual bars than the 8 and do last slightly longer, but for the price for amount of soap it's not bad at all. I have sensitive skin and Olay with shea butter is the only bar soap I've used for years. That sliver of soap isn't a problem either since I found out if you don't want wait until they are super thin, you can merge them into a fresh bar by pressing them together at the end of a shower. Just work them together a bit and leave the sliver piece on top and after a couple more showers it melts right into it.

      Pardon my filthy soap dish, but here's a pic. XD

      I also use dial antibacterial liquid hand soap at the sink. And Dove men+ care stain defense clean deodorant. That deodorant causes significantly less yellow staining on clothes, but I sweat like a bastard with any deodorant I use. Lol. And Curel fragrance free lotion is the best for my sensitive skin. No smell, no greasy after effect one it absorbs and it's got no smell at all.

      I've had dandruff issues my whole life. I guess because my hair is super thick. Every barber has always made a comment about it my whole life about how thick my hair is. Try T/Sal. I think its new? T/Gel works too but damn it smells like road tar or asphalt. -_-; When i was a young kid my mom always made me use T/Gel when my scalp got bad, but T/Sal doesn't smell at all... like seriously zero scent... again unless you stick it up in your nostril. XD I know a lot of things say no scent and they still have one, but this one smells like nothing.

      Maybe my skin just doesn't take to scented products very well, I must absorb them or something. Body wash never lasted long on me, even some colognes. I recently upped my game on that since i found the FragranceX website. They sell discount overstock like Tester bottles meant to be used by department stores. Amazon tends to have too many counterfeit colognes going out so I had to find a good discount retailer. I like Tommy Hilfiger Eau de Cologne, but it lasts just a little bit for me. Versace Eros and Polo Green work amazing for me and last all day. In the summer I sweat profusely at my job when it gets really hot so antiperspirant doesn't last all day sometimes.  Its like a last resort second line defense if that happens. XD I use Degree mostly because its strong. I don't have too much of an issue with stains even on my undershirts unless they're extremely old.

      Thanks! I'll have to try that shampoo. :D

      I almost never were cologne. Ever since I started working office jobs 20 years ago, if a guy put on cologne or ladys put on perfume, they'd be the most hated person at work. We're all sitting in cubicles or in a row of desks and that one person smelling strong all day would result in all kinds of issues. XD "why do I have to smell Jim all day!? Who the f*ck does he think he is?" Another person walking past a perfume lady "that perfume is so strong my eyes are watering" another coworker shouts from a row over in agreement: "it's really strong I'm going to have to go home for a half day because it's flaring my asthma."

      meanwhile another coworker burns microwave popcorn and brings it to her desk to eat the good ones still the bag. "Jesus christ woman!? Seriously!?"

      When eating fish on fridays became a thing for some ppl.. it eventually stopped being a thing when ppl in other departments starting complaining they could smell it through the walls. XD

  2. Thought I'd give this its own post. Probably a good starting point. Nothing really interesting in this video other than he is hyping up his next video that will be out Friday or Monday. He also said he'll be back to regularly making videos again and to expect them every 3 weeks.

    Kinda crazy they waited this long.
  5. Sounds neat, but seeing a bunch of hipsters in the room kinda worries me. Viz Media is involved somewhere? I wonder if we'll get a Star Wars anime.

    Nah they both make their own sauce. One guy has a huge mixer where he just makes a humongous vat of sauce daily. Like I said, to me its unique but as a big fan of pizza the only thing it really beats its frozen. On top of that I've never really been a red sauce fan either way. There is a regional chain here called Mellow Mushroom, and some other hole in the wall woodfire pizza places that have pizza without red sauce. They use an olive oil base instead and I prefer that when I can get it. For one it's much better for my acid reflux, and two it's just as moist without the tomato based sauce. I'm not really impressed with making your own mozzarella. Its the most mild tasting cheese out of the entire family and anyone can do it. It doesn't take very long to age. Plenty of places to pick up fresh real whole mozz around town. Pizza Hut def uses that low fat skimmed garbage. But the grease infused crust makes up for it. They use to make a pizza called the Big New Yorker, but that shit was super flimsy... it was still delicious though. Salted potatoes look good. I love skillet cooked baby potatoes. Lobster and Claim bakes is def a north eastern thing. You won't find that here, the gulf coast ecosystem is shrimp, crawfish, snow/dungeoness crab, red snapper, flounder, catfish, and oysters. I'd say shrimp is the most popular, steamed and fried. Oysters are a close second for their versatility. You can have them fried, raw, baked, and my favorite: char-grilled. Crawfish are the biggest cultural thing here though. Nothing like a crawfish boil. They're like mini lobsters, but you boil them similar to how you do cajun boiled peanuts. It was actually in that don'ts of the south video when they were pouring it all on that table with potatoes and corn. But when it comes down too it, most of it is fried just like everything in the south.
  7.  Whew, that was a GRIND! Starting Monarch next because I have a fleet of the required ships to use for the XP farm. These priority ships are insane to unlock. I only have so many cog chips for her. I guess I need to start shelling out the 8k gold every time her large project rolls around. X_x

    Boiled Peanuts are a southern delicacy. Boiling a raw peanut changes the taste. Its impossible to describe. If you ever see boiled peanuts in a can, avoid it. Its not good. Its as blasphemous as those Hormel canned tamales. I personally only like the cajun boiled peanuts. Normal boiled peanuts are just wet peanuts with a different taste But the spices make it heavenly when its done cajun style. I'm not buying the NY Pizza thing. I've watched so many videos of people with their NY pizzas. I fail to see how it can be any better than anywhere else. There are 2 New Yorkers that opened up pizza places here that make it as you described. Their pizzas are big, and foldable. And I do enjoy them, and mostly eat my pizza there because they are local, but its just different. I do like that grease bomb limp crust that Pizza Hut has every now an then, but they use that super processed cheese. Pizza is just bread, sauce, and cheese to me. The NY style pizza isn't overwhelmingly better. You can't make cheese or sauce into something more mindblowingly amazing, all you can do is make the bread different. There is a guy from Chicago that makes deep dish across the bay and I need to go try that since it seems unique. There is also a guy from Philly that has his own philly cheesestake shop, and its magical. But hes super old and I bet the place closes when he passes away. Same with one of the pizza parlors I mentioned. That dude is old and has like a few teenagers to run the register. He works 6 days a week and closes on Mondays I think, and Wednesday hes only open half the day. Basically he's the only one that makes the stuff and I doubt he'll share his secret and pass on the shop to someone else. Both those shops have like a 28 inch pizza as their largest size. Its so ridiculously huge. I dunno how some people get it into their car. The box is so big it barely fits through the door without tilting the pizza. We use to have Dinosaur BBQ sauce in the grocery stores around here. It was spicy and so good. Its hard to find now. It was def one of my favorites. We have a pretty good local BBQ scene here. But no one will ever convince me there is better BBQ than what I had in Memphis TN. Our Italian scene is kinda small. We have a few nice little places, and then bottom tier Olive Garden. Someone that i knew worked there and said all they do is open frozen bags and heat the stuff up. Our Mexican and Asian scene has exploded over the past 10 years or so. All the Chinese buffets went under around here with the rise of fresh and delicious sit down places. We have Chinese, Vietnamese, and a ton of Thai places which is probably my favorite. There was a Phillipine place but sadly that closed down. I think the city force them into it because they were operating out of a really old but big home that kinda was just in the middle of a business district. The building probably wasn't up to code and they couldn't afford to renovate. We have a lot of Hibachi and Sushi places, and my favorite, the anti-social hibachi places where they don't have the table and the performance that gets old after the 3rd time you seen it. I love hibachi food, I hate the cooking performance and all the other randos at the table I don't know. We also have a lot of hibachi to go places. All the homestyle cooking places went under too because no one really wants to go out and pay to eat something they make a home. Cracker Barrel is the closest thing to that we have left. Back to Mexican, If the Mexican places there don't have Lengua, Chorizo, and/or Tripe somewhere on the menu, it ain't mexican. Its just Tex Mex. Gotta have Tortas, Sopes, and Empanadas. I remember the first authentic place that opened here, they had a menu that was "american mexican" and then the second half that was in all Spanish. I'd always order from that after typing stuff into google translate. Eventually they translated it themselves in captions. Next thing you know we have like 5 or 6 now that serve the good stuff. You won't find ground beef anywhere at most of them. Def should check out that Irish Pub, probably the best lamb chops you'll ever have if they know what they're doing. There's one about 60 miles from me, that me and a few friends go visit on a special occasion. They have some of the best food there is. They make a killer ribeye, but I enjoy their Lamb Chops and these Jameson's glazed pork chops that are as big as a ribeye. EDIT: Oh I forgot, Our seafood scene is our pride and joy. We are the gulf coast after all. Red Lobster is trash. Nothing beast fresh caught seafood. There is basically a strip along the bayway of nothing but seafood restaurants. A little more west in Mississippi, there is an all you can eat catfish house, and there are just various seafood and seafood infusion places. There is one little in the know place that has seafood and burgers/steak/chicken dishes. I have some friends that are married, the husband hates seafood, so its their favorite place since he can get a burger or steak, and she can have a seafood platter and both parties are happy.

    Brisk is NOT sweet tea. Any restaurant trying to serve that down here will get called out. Anything thats premade in a bottle outside of a jug of Milo's is like saying Kool-Aid is juice. Only freshly brewed is acceptable. You can just type in unsweet tea meme into google and there is an endless supply. Grits on the other hand. Its not for everyone, but I bet you had it just plain cooked, super gritty and zero butter or salt. Its like eating grape nuts stew that way. There is a very low concern for eating habits in the south. Most grits are loaded with butter and salt. It takes on a more creamy texture. Cheese is a must as well, but its much better when used as a part of a dish rather than the main dish. Shrimp and Grits are pretty popular. Chicken and Waffles are actually pretty good. But its not really common. Only one restaurant served it here and it shut down. Biscuits and gravy is magical. The sausage gravy itself is incredible. Its not gravy in the sense of turkey gravy. its not soupy, its like a semi solid of meat and salt . That lay's potato chip flavor a few years ago pretty much tasted just like the gravy. KFC biscuits are kinda dry. If you have a Popeyes up there, now that's a biscuit. Hardee's/Carl's Jr makes pretty good biscuits too. My uncle is from Minnesota and hes a super picky eater but likes weird shit like sugar and rice. wtf? He doesn't like any spicy stuff and eats the most bland foods. Thats my view of northern cuisine. I figured NYC is different because it's a cultural hub, but from what my friends that visited or lived there have said, there are no good Mexican places. As good as Taco Bell is, its trash tier. Basically what McDonalds is to Five Guys is the best comparison i can give.

    Spending my whole life in the south, I never knew everyone didn't drink sweet tea or ate grits. Unsweetened tea is trash.
  11. I remember when this first hit all the media lambasted the fandom for being racist because no one liked how Starfire looked. They all said fans were mad because she was because she was black, but it was really because they gave her a flea market crusty the clown wig and a Halloween sexy princess dress from party city. But shes a prostitute? There was no context for this at first, but even though it makes somewhat more sense she still looks terrible. But in the new promo art she looks great. Old New Either way, what you described sounds awful. The whole WOKE culture gets on my nerves and I'm generally turned off by any kinda controversy before a show comes out these days. That whole racism fiasco put me off ever wanting to watch it. Its one thing to pick the best actor which they probably did with Anna Diop, but its another to just gender/race swap everyone just to do it. I hear that's what they've done to the Eternals. If you have to promote anything that's not relevant to the story or lore of a show/film. That's a big ole red flag for me. 9 times out of 10 the story is gonna be absolute ass. When Star Trek did the first on screen interracial kiss, they just did it. They didn't go out and promote it weeks before the episode. Different time and era of course, but the method still holds true. /end random rant.
  12. This season looks to have a lot of twists
