  1. I'm on my laptop and it wasn't workin. Due to work I'm in an OSX and iOS environment so it should have been just fine.
  2. Is that video playing for anyone else? I'm gettin an oontz error.
  3. From what I understand he's been gettin blazed and playin video games with his kids on twitch, which... honestly seems like the most wholesome outcome for ol boy. Desus is doing a trial run on Kimmel during his sabbatical, he's gonna do just fine too.
  4. Surprised none of the old heads had started a thread about this yet. Sad to see one of our old own lose their show (although it seems to be a specific choice). From 12oz to victorylight.blogspot to podcasts to Viceland to Showtime. Still big ups to MERO for making me laugh for fucking years.
  5. Currently workin the DeLorean 3 in 1. Goin with the II config. I"ll post photos when done. Also, new app out utilizing visual AI to look at a spread of bricks and will show you what you can build based on what's there. Brickit. It's an open source model (or was) from stanford. we'll see what happens with it. I reached out to a really rad builder on IG and told em to get ahold and license their shit cus I'd love the ability to easily sift through possible furniture builds for minifig size architectural work.

    it's pretty wild. This was his last marathon style competition. He's in his mid 30's also, if not late. He's done this before, and also done a pretty wild race in Europe as well. otherwise he lives the same dumb tech/career life that i do too. wife is a script editor/writer, two cute ass kids. just a wholesome ass man who entertains my dumb shit sometimes while continuing to be an absolute fucking monster on a bike. qualifications for the RAAM, not sure. I just know no one would be able to question his bona fides.

    Buddy of mine just finished 4th in solo-mens in Race Across America. 11days 6hours and some odd minutes to complete 3000mi from west to east coast. what a beast.
  8. oh man, the fucking fungwah... also, this thread makes me all nostalgic for old ch0. everyone annoyed with each other. everyone dug into their positions. none of it fucking mattering one goddamnit bit. fuck boston.
  9. i'd love to be even less than a tourist.
  10. Good for you. Said sincerely.
  11. It's an independent war/crises journalism group. Some really solid stuff comes from them. I'd give them a look on twitter.
  12. Bellingcat seemed to think this was authentic. Which is fucking wild.
  13. It's most certainly sets in box. Lego rarely goes on sale, and even more rarely allows for retailers to put items on sale. So their prospective value in the market doesn't really dip. Some sets more than others will fetch more. Whether they are vintage or not. However, some collectors (myself included when not exactly sober) will pay for vintage sets out of box but with instructions. I have one set that I haven't put together yet that's from the mid century when they were being manufactured for Lego by Samsonite, of all companies. More recent sets that before they started doing second runs of them that were going pretty high in secondary markets were the Bonsai set, the Tree House, and from a few years ago the Architecture Studio. Three years ago you could still get that for under 200, I bought it last year at $399 unopened. Lego has stated they will never release that set again, hence the market spike. Ultimately it's like any other collectable. However, I think the pandemic had an impact on millenials and gen x that had time and cash to spare from not going out. A flood of demand and a lack of supply has jacked prices in the secondary market. I don't think there's a scalper/scammer effect yet, but after news articles like the one that got linked I wouldn't be surprised.
  14. RE: UCS Millenium Falcon: Fuck Yes. ETA: I built that Imperial Probe Droid two days ago. Not a hard build, but a little frustrating on the construction of the legs. Legit have thought about putting a lil glue in a few connections.
  15. We have a few other sets: The Moon Lander ISS Space Station I'm gonna start building some MOC sets I think: https://www.brickvault.toys/products/eagle-5-minifig-scale https://www.brickvault.toys/collections/all/products/ucs-delorean-time-machine https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-26511/Pleasedontspammebro/1971-nissan-240z-fairlady-alternate-build-of-42056-porsche-911-gt3-rs/#details
  16. This has been one of my big return of hobbies during pandemic. I've done a few interesting ones lately, but only got a picture of a few: At-St from Mandolorian Y-Wing bomber Cameron Poe Black X-wing A few other Star Wars sets Moving into some other series of sets: Aston Martin from No Time to Die Half Dome mini set from Yosemite Smal Scale Grave Digger
  17. Legitimate question for @mr.yuck were you unaware of the your parent's financial situation that led to this reality?
  18. I'l be in VT in a few years and I'll happily get a few tax stamps then.
  19. Not saying anything you don’t know, but a vandalism charge is drastically different than a federal firearms charge. that said, back to the things that go boom. Ppls preferred shotguns?
  20. While I certainly have no intention of engaging in the manufacture of illegal fire arms as designated by the state I live in, I most definitely wouldn't be posting on here about it.
  21. Oh, if we're pullin out Ro, that's a whole other thing. Guerilla Maab - Speak on it (Zro was 19 here I think?) Same album, him and his cousins Trae tha Truth and Dougie D - Keep Watchin me Classic Z-Ro freestyle - Mo City Don Z-Ro - I found me Bonus Fat Pat - Tops Drop
  22. And for those that like Paul Wall, this song is still so fuckin good:
  23. Chamillionaire - oochy wally freestyle: Slim Thug, Paul Wall and Chamillionaire - before the kappa 2k1 freestyle Paul Wall and Chamillionaire - xxxplosive freestyle Chamillionaire and PW - EI Freestyle And one from the one album they actually released together: I could do this all day. It's certainly a time and place, but this shit was huge in Houston. The whole era of independent tapes comin out in the late 90s and early aughts was so fuckin great to ride around bangin. My first car was an 89' Crown Vic that I promptly threw two very fucking cheap 13s in the trunk. Busted those shits real quick.
