#3130246 Mad Max - Fury Road

Posted by dos poptarts on 11 December 2014 - 03:32 PM

After Ridley let me down with Prometheus.....I'm not ready to jump completely in with Miller with resurrecting older franchises...but damn, this trailer looks awesome.....the teaser trailer that was released months ago had me worried.

I love the Mad Max trilogy. Please, please don't let me down with this one.

yeah HCMC. headed up to hue tomorrow to spend some time around the DMZ, khe sanh, da nang, son my, etc.


Cool. My mom is from Da Nang. Grandparents used to own a store near one of the bridges (not the big/dragon bridge), the one next to it. Commies took it over and threw them out. Everyone in the area still knew my mom (at least 10 years ago) and I've got plenty of aunts/uncles/cousins still living next to the river. If you see someone hammering ship anchor links to re-use the metal, it might just be an uncle of mine. (My mom did have 15 siblings). I'm definitely related to some of the women at the locals market near the bridge.


The tunnels @Cu Chi are cool. There were two sites you can visit, my cousins husband took us to the least tourist one. If I had realized you were heading to Viet, I'd probably asked if he wouldn't mind me sending his contact info (if you needed a local emergency contact). He's a current Special Forces Reserves and has access and friends in the US Embassy in HCMC. His advice to me was that Viet men still bluster and bark more than bite. If you stand your ground, they'll eventually back down. His opinion is there's still some psychology ingrained that American's are bigger/tougher that carries over from the war. He also hides that he is fluent in Viet, and will speak in broken Viet even though he's lived there for almost 16 years now.


Dunno if much has changed, but we were always told to throw our trash on the road. There were no trashcans in the streets of Da Nang. The city paid people to clean them at night/early morning. And all trash is sifted through looking for value. Probably why I get irked when people complain about being poor in the US.


Have fun. Probably still hot in DaNang, but at least it's not summer. (yes I went in June) So fugging hot the locals actually close up shop in the middle of the day to go home and rest. There is absolutely no one on the streets.

#3127160 Cam Involved in serious car wreck, reportedly uninjured

Posted by dos poptarts on 09 December 2014 - 02:31 PM

I'm still waiting for Rivera to get blamed for this.


Rumor: Ron's autoshop rotated Cam's right front tire to replace an aging left front. Replacement right tire was a retread bought from a used tire dealer.

It wouldn't be the Christmas shopping season if the stores were any less hooter than they, hotter, than they are. It is warm in here, isn't it?


Can't see the line, can you Russ.

#3103292 Well I'll bet they called 911 - this time

I got guns at home and my little one will start walking in 5-6 months. I'm scared shitless... I will buy biometric safe within next 3 months plus have all my gun triggers locked with combination codes. 


Doubt your toddler is going to hack his way into the gun safe, but it does show a lack of actual security in a few models. (around 17 mins in, they reprogram a biometric lock to accept a new fingerprint from the outside with a tool the size of an allen wrench.) Video is from 2011.

pfft.....it's Tuesday workouts. Every team in the NFL works out guys that have nearly no chance of getting signed. Non-story.

#3098760 Greg Olsen on first take tomorrow

Olsen's going to have a post NFL career in front of a camera if he wants it.

#3097198 i want to start watching star wars with my daughter...

Watch Original Trilogy then Prequels.


Here is a vid that offers explanation where Lucas failed as a story teller and what he could have done. (instead of the standard prequels suck, JarJar, Midiclorians....blah.blah.blah.)

kipping is illegal in my world


Yea, my rock climbing class instructor @NCSU asked us to guess and do pull-ups at the beginning for assessment. IIRC, 18 would get you an A, 12 a B, 8 a C at mid-terms. Guy said he could get 25 easy. Instructor stood counting....ZERO, ZERO, ZERO, ZERO....took until 8 flops before the student understood that none of those were pull-ups. Guy had to start over and couldn't get 6.

#3088536 Ultimate Huddle debate: Greatest Kung Fu film?

Posted by dos poptarts on 16 November 2014 - 08:36 AM

If I had to pick a true #1 I'd go with Drunken Master II.

Jet Li's One Upon a China series next.


But for movies I can drop in and watch anytime:

City Hunter / Dragons Forever / Police Story / Armor of God II (the HK version, not the fugging US edited version)


Ip Man, The Raid Redemption, Ong Bak, Hero, are all strong.


For the fantasy themed, Storm Riders was fun to watch and A Chinese Ghost Story is very good.
