I don't know, but I wish he'd bring back cult movies. Viceland would be the perfect channel for it.

Re: Neon Genesis Evangelion coming to Netflix

My introduction to anime was Akira playing dubbed on SBS. Good times... The general problem I've found is the Japanese intonation of speech sounds horrible when copied by English voice actors. So I prefer to hear the pronunciation in Japanese while reading the subs. Perhaps there are some good dubs ...

This is the best gaming news I've heard in years. I might reinstall Bloodlines to celebrate this announcement.

If you haven't seen it, check out Plebs on iView. Or if you're in for a action / black comedy, there's Killing Eve.

Re: Altered Carbon

Agree with Sathias - it's visually stunning. What I liked about the series was that the story was dense enough to fill out a season. It felt like there's was very little filler, which is something that many series are guilty of in order to justify the episode count. It also used action quite sparing...

Re: Fleeting/Random/Thoughts

Personally I think the older one is, the more impressive it is. Having the confidence to be a dork in public is quite an achievement, as most of us know from an early age that such displays are to be scorned and ridiculed.

Did an online coding interview today. First time I've done something like that. It's weird because the kinds of questions they ask are like doing a coding exam at university - more to show off coding skills than anything related to my 12 years of employment. Guess I'll find out if my results* are go...

Re: Alien 5

I think the problem of Prometheus and Alien Covenant was that people were expecting them to be alien films. And as much as I enjoyed those films, their weakest moments were when they did the alien-like sequences. But I guess that's part of the problem with trying to tap into that fictional world - t...

Watched the first episode of You, and couldn't stand the narration.

I also started Sex Education, and I've enjoyed that so far. Gillian Anderson makes every show better!

Re: Fleeting/Random/Thoughts

I did the maths for what it would cost us to pay rent in an apartment versus the deprecating value, and I worked out that even if the apartment's value drops 40% in 10 years, we'd have still been better off buying than to continue renting. Because either way you've got to pay to live. Though I keep ...

Suppose it depends on the asking of billable hours in the year. It's good money, but if you're only busy part of the day, of the week, or of the year, then the number needs to be that high to have a liveable wage. A workaholic in an area with high demand and low supply would be raking it in, but I c...

On a side note, I've never understood why people complain about tradies and how much they make. A skill is a skill, and anyone can in theory take up the skill themselves. Supply and demand is economics 101.

Re: Planet Trump

The thing I'm unsure about is the extent to which fast food pervades the American diet. I can see it going either way, really, with it either being a good egalitarian gesture that would fit with what they normally eat (this is Trump's diet too after all), or seen as wholly inappropriate given the fo...
