Random thing you love right now that doesn't deserve its own thread

I don't think MacGuyver runs 24/7 unfortunately, some of the channels are "themed" (like "Classic Game Shows" or whatever) and play a variety of shows around that theme, and I think I saw MacGuyver on one of those.

Continuing my exploration of Australian (and New Zealand) cuisine inspired by A_Unicycle, and after watching the relevant Bluey episode we are now having Pavlova for dessert tonight.

Wish me luck...

Right like there's a Degrassi, Stargate, Star Trek, etc. channels. They alternate through series. Sometimes Trek channel is showing TNG, sometimes TOS, etc.

And there's 90210, Baywatch, Family Ties, Happy Days, Threes Company, and others with their own channels.

But then there's like TV Land Sitcoms, Classic TV Comedies, Classic TV Families, etc. with rotating shows.

And two MST3K channels!

Gamedec (currently free on epic) is soooo good. It's basically a big, rich visual novel with lush beautiful 3D graphics and a point/click interface and a skill tree and lush beautiful worldbuilding.

It's definitely not for anyone who dislikes reading. But if you like cyberpunk and you've ever enjoyed a VN, don't miss it.

Alright, fine, I'll download it!

You got me to play it for an hour yesterday, and I'm definitely in for more.

You're not wrong that is closer to a VN than a game, but the writing and world seem interesting, so (so far), it's pulling it off.

Really pleased Gamedec went free (I expected it eventually - or that it would end up on Game Pass). It's been on my wishlist since I saw early previews, but I was never quite convinced enough to pull the trigger.

For some reason Rifftrax dropped an entire movie on their youtube channel. Gammera the Invincible.

I made six mini ones, this was by far the best.

Would you say that was a Pavlovian response?

Very positive.

My wife, mil, son, and I all loved it. (At his request, I used maraschino cherries instead of fresh fruit). It was a fun project. I hacked together Sally's Baking Addiction recipe with an Alton Brown recipe. Namely, I used Alton's recipe and technique with the following exceptions:

  • 2 tsp lemon juice instead of the vinegar
  • Added a tbsp of vanilla extract for flavor
  • Well, probably more, I never measure and I have a heavy hand
  • Spun my white sugar in a food processor for a bit to make fine sugar
  • Used the Sally's directions (and cook time) to make six mini ones instead of one big one
  • Preheated the oven to 350 (F) and then lowered to 200 (F) when I put the Pavlova(s) in
  • No kiwi, because its winter in this hemisphere, and I don't think canned kiwi exists in the States
  • I’ve had a lots of small victories so far.

    Spending habits have gone down. I haven’t tried to go as hard this year.

    Listening to more music and library time. Set up a little stereo set and it feels good.

    Working on relationships I messed up.

    My cousin's daughter is up for an Oscar for The Elephant Whisperers. So so proud of her.
