Random non sequitur posts catch-all thread

My 2nd favorite RPG actual play Podcast is Spout Lore, after The Unmarked, of course.

I don't see how you can do a podcast about a cartoon character that spins around destroying stuff. Seems like you would run out of content fast.

I haven't heard of that one. Have you tried Glass Cannon? Probably my second favorite.

If I was animal I'd be bear eating honey. I'd have little pink buddy that would always make me giggle and a really bad friend always knocking me over.

Glass Cannon is really fun. Their spin off Androids & Aliens is also great if you are into a more sci-fi theme.

From time to time I've been seeing this weird animal on the net I thought was fake because it looked like a giant sea monkey. It is called a Axolotl, its kind of cute. Also known as the walking fish but it isn't a fish.

The fact that the Season 1 DLC Pass for DoA6 is literally just under $100 is one of the single ballsiest things I've ever seen a game company do. Wow.

That multidimensional boob physics and all those outfits are expensive to produce!

DoA5 ended up with something like $1,000+ worth of DLC, so it's a bargain, really!

o_O

In a world where modders have created thousands of skins for Street Fighter V for free, again, so goddamn ballsy. Unbelievable.

Fully-developed quantum fluctuations.

I tried exercising my demons but they refused to do even a single sit up or jumping jack.

It vaguely saddens me to realize that a generation of people will grow up (or already have, I guess) whose mental image of Sherlock Holmes is Benedict Cumberbatch or Robert Downey Jr. (shudder).

When I heard that the Robert Downey Jr. films were coming out I went and read a bunch of actual Sherlock Holmes so that's a positive at least. Those books are great.

And at least Sherlock won't be this guy:

It's more a crying shame it won't be. I could sure have used Sherlock Holmes and the case of the floating barge & suggestive women.

I’m just glad we finally have people seeing Watson as a competent, capable companion of Sherlock rather than as the bumbling, clueless sidekick that the 1940’s films ingrained into the public consciousness.

Am I misremembering a movie or show version where Sherlock is clueless and Watson solves his crimes for him?

What version do you mean? I haven't seen any movies that old, but I never thought of Watson as particularly bumbling in the Only Version Worth Mentioning™.

(By contrast in the BBC reboot Watson came off as bumbling for me, but that may just be in comparison to how they made Holmes/Mycroft/etc. so over-the-top superhuman...)

Suddenly I'm reminded of the name that movie thread....

Which version is the only version worth mentioning?

Whichever one you watched between the ages of 14 and 20.

Thinking of adding led lights to a hot wheels case. Haven't done anything like that before. I seen some led strips that would work but I'm not sure if I should snaking the strip through the case or cutting multiple strips and trying to wire them together. The case is split in half and each side has six shelves. Regardless I will have to cut holes into each shelf and the middle divider.

I don't understand what a smirking James Woods has to do with Sherlock Holmes...

The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes: A Scandal in Bohemia

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZaDf...

Episode 1 from the TV series of Sherlock Holmes adaptations produced by British television company Granada Television, between 1984 and 1994, starring Jeremy Brett in the main role, and David Burke as Doctor Watson.

Enjoyed Brett's version of Holmes myself.
