  1. One thing about this forum -- I can ask a brief question that boils down to "I don't feel like spending a lot of time using GoogleFu to figure it out" and a member takes time out of his or her day to give me an accurate and thoughtful answer. Thank you @NickC! And to follow up offering to check your store in return for cost to any LCVG member? Wow. As a slightly-related aside I'm reminded of Dean, EnemaEms, offering me his launch PS4 that he didn't need at cost. Haven't seen him here in ages, but thank you. You and NickC are genuinely good people.
  2. Great premise -- and I like Zdarsky -- but this book does nothing for me other than the premise. Same thing happened to me. I want to revisit it, though. Imma recommend some stuff: Assassin Nation. It's hilarious and from Kyle Starks and Erica Henderson: "The World’s Former Greatest Hitman hires the 20 best assassins in the world to be his bodyguards. These mean-as-hell hired guns and murderers must work together to keep the new crime boss safe while attempting to solve the mystery of who’s trying to off him." Curse Words. From Ryan Browne (creator of the unhinged God Hates Astronauts) and Charles Soule: "A wizard has appeared in present-day New York! His name is Wizord, and he's here to save us all from dark magical forces bent on our destruction. He's the best wizard of all time! Or...he's not, and he's lying to everyone, and secretly is the dark magical force, but wants to hang out in our world for a while because it's so much nicer than the hellhole he comes from." Lazarus. Hard sci-fi (political and military) set in the near future from Greg Rucka. I love it and it constantly reminds me how little there is in this genre at this high level of quality. Star Trek: Year Five. This book is run like a tv show with "show runners" and rotating teams on individual issues. It reads like it's run by people who love Star Trek and want to tell great stories in that universe. So, not like any NuTrek.
  3. Hey, how did you swing finding one? I'd love to build a new PC based on a vanilla 3080 or even a 3070.
  4. No attempt necessary -- this is super easy to make. I would quote Yoda here about "trying." It's a great go-to for fatty meats, especially ribs and pulled pork. Those eastern North Carolinians cracked the code IMO! Cut the recipe in half and see what you think.
  5. I usually make this one: https://www.seriouseats.com/eastern-north-carolina-barbecue-sauce I use coarse gochugaru flakes instead of the generic red pepper flakes. I also *think* organic apple cider vinegar makes a difference. Not sure if it's real. And I'll look for a bottle of Cox Sauce!
  6. Sweet Baby Ray's is the only widely available sweet, thick sauce I'd buy. For ribs and pulled pork, I make a simple Eastern North Carolina sauce.
  7. Glad I bailed earlier then. The only one I like was the Tchalla becoming Star Lord one.
  8. Word? That's more than a whole week!
  9. I got the impression that the plan was leave off the last few books for adapting down the road. Not sure where I heard it, though. I'm still pissed that they didn't recast Alex. Nobody was confused by the two Darrens, two "Rhodey" Rhodes, two Aunt Vivs, etc.
  10. That's a great skill; glad to see an entire class focused on it.
  11. I just realized I keep saying "Phil" like a salesman.
  12. What the FUCK, Phil? You've been trying out a new skill and kept this from us? Thumbs up from me.
