The Bar & Grill / The new "Too much Free Time" thread
« on: February 17, 2021, 07:34:26 PM »
I mean, we've all had far too much free time since the you-know-what  so we should probably have our own too much free time thread. I mean, we could ask the old place to give us the original for old time's sake but I don't think they'll go for it.

So, I present the all-singing, all-dancing, all-those-other-things-you're-not-supposed-to-randomly-do-in-public, all new "Too much free time" thread.

It's long held knowledge that putting "New" in the name and following the old formula exactly is a sure-fire way to make something terrible. So, let's get this hot mess started.

I don't really have any of my own content to post here in the Procrastination Station so I guess I'll just link to some fun videos. That'll do. I might write some stuff eventually though.

Swear warning on this one.

The Bar & Grill / Today's Daily Google Banner

Thought this was kind of interesting.

Today is: the 50th Birthday of Monty Python, the anniversary of Harry Truman's first televised presidential address and also the premiere of Dr. No and the release of The Beatles first single.

Today's Google banner: Happy Teacher's Day 2019?

I don't understand, I thought Google loved History, they're always celebrating some old bint's 114th birthday on their banners for some reason and they're wasting all this historic material.

Convoluted plots have always been something of an obsession of mine. The idea of keeping people interested, regardless of whatever tangential whim you decide to follow, sounds like a lot of fun to me. I grew up surrounded by insane plot twists and slingshots full of storytelling tropes being thrown at the media I consumed.

I like it.

Anyway, here's a video where some guy tries to explain a story and this kinda set me down the path of going "oh yeah, bonkers stories can just be a lot of fun." I mean, the guy's explanation made me chuckle and I wanted to put a link to it somewhere and rambling about plot was something that I used to do so... that.

It's simple really, what's that song that you've got stuck in your head today.

For me;

The Bar & Grill / What is the film you've seen most recently?

I went to see the new Star Wars film yesterday. I say new, but it was basically Empire with no plot twist or cliffhanger at the end.

and stuff.

I think that's a completely appropriate way to introduce myself to people.

Okay, I'm going to go create a bunch of topics so this place feels more like home.
