  1. Thread resurrection! I recently bought a Pit Barrel Cooker and am loving it so far. The first smoke was a Prime Brisket that I got from Costco for $3.49/lb (!!!!). Turned out great...used a rub that came with the PBC and then smoked it with a couple chunks of hickory. The second cook was some ribs...I used a Pork rub that I got from Costco (really tasty) and some hickory chunks. 4 hours later we were eating delicious ribs! This weekend is going to be a chicken and some bacon wrapped jalapeno poppers. I ordered some cherry wood and some Kosmos Q Honey Killer Bee rub for something a little different than the last two cooks. I'm quite excited! Note: the hooks you see are for hanging the meat in the PBC...works really well, and you can fit a ton of food in there because of it.
  2. Luckily for you, I have recently invented sedan nuts! They're like truck nuts but get better MPG. If interest is strong, I will be expanding into motorcycle nut (two might be unbalanced) and ATV nuts (they have a lot of sand on them).
  3. Interesting...I think I still have one that I'm not using...the question will be if I can find it
  4. I've got the exact same desk that I bought around the same time. Only difference is mine has a dark top instead of the light wood. I love it and it's still super solid after ~15 years and several moves!
  5. Finally got this started, and am now about halfway through season 2. It's so good! There are a few coincidences that are probably better if you don't think too much about them, but the characters and story are so entertaining that I'm willing to overlook a few things. I'm watching the English dub, and it's one of the better dubs I've seen! Thanks for the rec, @Carlucci!!
  6. I love the wall color, Carlos! I don't know if I'd leave that room much
  7. Terrific book, and I'm excited to see what they do with it on film. I feel like they've been talking about this for a while now, no? At least DiCaprio has?
  8. Have you watched North by Northwest yet?
  9. Terrific film! If you haven't seen this before, check it out. Someone took all the outdoor scenes and turned it into a timelapse. Pretty incredible stuff: Note: I am a different Jeff
  10. There's a lot of weird fetishes out there, Dan...
  11. This! I set up a recurring virtual happy hour on Thursday with coworkers and last week's was a blast. 13 people sitting around having drinks and talking about anything but work. I talk to most of them all day every day via one form or another, but it was nice in a virtual non-work setting. Also doing the same on Wednesdays with friends. It's really nice to see other people's faces after mainly only seeing my wife and dog on a daily basis. Not complaining about either face, but some variety is nice
  12. Well, I found out there is more after the credits Another 15 hours and I wrapped up everything I want to at the 100.5 hour mark. I still didn't do all of the Tickington things and didn't finish all of the challenges for the High Llama, but I was ready to wrap it up and am happy with having beat the last boss (who was MUCH tougher than the rest of the game!!). Now that I wrapped this up, I've moved on to Octopath Traveler, but that's for a different thread!
  13. That scene where they dance on bmx bikes at prom should hold up well, right?
  14. I live in Toledo. They announced all K-12 school buildings will be closed for three weeks starting Monday. They're trying to figure out if they can do remote teaching (I don't think most of the schools have the equipment) or what else they might be able to do. Also, my wife and I just cancelled our trip out to Scottsdale this Sunday. To say I'm bummed is an extreme understatement, but it feels like the right thing to do. I told everyone at work to work from home for at least the next week. We're pretty well set up for it (everyone has laptops and does WFH periodically), so it shouldn't be a big deal for us. This is fairly surreal at this point. Throw Tom Hanks into the mix, and it's just insane!
  15. I wrapped up the main story earlier today at about the 85 hour mark. I didn't do many of the Tickington things (I did a couple and got annoyed with the 2D-ness of it; and this coming from a guy who played the first three on the NES back in the day). Overall, I really enjoyed it, but I have a couple complaints about backtracking in the game. There was a few too many instances of "Go to town A and talk to X. Then go back to where you just were and talk to Y. Now you have to go back to town A again to collect object F from person Z and then return to where you started." Those parts got a little frustrating, but overall I really enjoyed the story. I wish it had been a little more difficult, though. I think I only died once the whole way through, and even during the final boss fight, I never really felt threatened. I did have a lot of fun with it, though, and thought it played really well on the Switch. Are there any talks of them porting DQ8 to the Switch? I've never played that one, and have heard great things, but am happy to wait if they are working on it. If not, which is the best version to play?
  16. Like you said, the lack of bundled external charger on the X-T4 is very odd. It can't save them more than a couple dollars per unit. But USB-C charging is great. I'll probably get a second battery and the dual charger anyways. My wife got the X-T30 about 6 months back and loves it. I can contribute my extra batteries to her shooting endeavors. Maybe that will away her 🤣
  17. Agree @Angry the Clown! I already told my wife I'm getting one, to which she replied, "No you're not. Your X-T1 is still fine." I'm hoping that's a ploy on her part to throw me off the fact that she's getting it for my birthday. We'll see. If she doesn't, I'll buy it myself as it will be way cheaper than a divorce
  18. @Robot Monkey - did you ever look into this? I've been playing Dragon Quest 11 the last month or so, and I've noticed that when I first start the game up, my Switch fan(s) go crazy for about the first minute, but then they are silent the rest of the session. It's definitely odd, but I'm not sure if I should be concerned or not. This is docked and I got my Switch about a year ago. Thanks!
  19. That looks amazing, but not sure I want to jump into a 60-80 hour at this point in my life (says the guy who has DQ11 and Octopath on Switch and hasn't started them yet). I LOVED playing the original, though. We'll see.
  20. I’ve noticed it once or twice, always while docked. I think I was playing Luigis Mansion both times...
  21. Resurrecting Camp's comment from March...I asked for (and received!!) the BLON BL-03 IEMs for Christmas and they sound really, really good (especially considering the ~$40 price). I've been listening about an hour so far to various "Master" tracks on Tidal (mostly old Stevie Wonder and jazz classics) and it sounds *great*. Very wide sound stage, and everything sounds very balanced. I'm just using the USB-C audio adapter plugged into my Pixel 2 XL, and am quite happy with the sound. I might play around with some different tips, as even the largest included ones feel a little small, but I've got some memory foam ones at home that I've never used. In spite of that, I'm quite happy thus far!! Has anyone played around with portable DAC/amplifier options? I'm intrigued, but unsure of how much better it could sound.
  22. Whoa, that's awesome! Haven't seen them in 10 or so years. We are going to AZ for vacation the next day or I'd be tempted to drive up just for Shellac...
  23. I'm not very far (I just found my third elevator button but can't remember which floor it's for), but am absolutely loving this game. Gooligi is particularly endearing. The lighting and everything else is absolutely top notch. It's my first Luigi's Mansion, and hopefully not my last.
