I actually thought MMOs were a really fun concept until Everquest (and its myriad of sequels) happened.

We also lost our cat this year, nearly the same age. I still feel sad every time I think of it - I wish we could have kept him for 10 more years.

She was best cat friends with the oldest cat and really just hadn't been right since she passed. There was a brief recovery where she got back up to a proper weight and was being herself then she basically fell off a cliff again.

She was really special to me as she was an outside stray rescued as a kitten. At the time she was so malnourished she couldn't even use her back legs. Probably amazing she made it to 11 but fuuuuck this feels awful.

^ really sorry about your cats Image

- -

rene auberjonois just rejoined the great link. year couldn't end without another DS9 actor dying... i mentioned already when aron died, but i was watching through the show for the first time this year and have since finished, and seeing the actors die like this is really depressing.

the "what we left behind" documentary from last year - which i literally just watched yesterday, allowing me to see rene up and about in HD - talked about ds9 getting a resurgence of popularity thanks to a few factors (still-relevant or potentially even *more* relevant political commentary, today, things like its serialization actively benefiting from the binge-watching nature of streaming services) and even spitballed how to begin a hypothetical season 8. i had a little hope the show would somehow come back despite michael piller being dead, but i feel like that hope is squashed, now.

Star Trek online did a great DS9 reunion only a few years ago. Everyone reprised their roles except Sisko and O'Brien and the missions are pretty good.

What. Shit! I thought she won her fight with cancer long ago.
Why does this thing happen all the time? I guess no one should ever feel safe. :( So fucking sad.

^ lost someone close to the family yesterday to cancer. here's a vent -

Spoiler: show
a few hours after i posted that bit on rene, my parents call five minutes away from the apartment telling me they're dropping by. very sudden, very strange. earlier in the day, i had been talking to them about how they were seeing a close friend of the family dealing with breast cancer, and i stated that "i should really go see her." we had had a discussion a week or two ago that it's probably likely this upcoming christmas is her last christmas and she's got a little less than a year left.

i've known this person my entire life and seen her on dozens upon dozens of occasions - i'm talking about someone close enough she spent parts of every christmas and thanksgiving with us. she was the high school sweetheart and wife of one of my mom's best friends (who is also my uncle's lifelong best friend). i grew up going on vacations and being on friendly terms with her family, and was, at points, friends to both her daughter (my age, who i was in chorus with at some point in high school) and son (a little younger, i'd spent a great deal of time with both on family vacations, visits, etc.). in all my time knowing this woman, she was one of the kindest, most amicable people i've ever met. i cannot recall seeing her angry so much as once. she was 56 and only a year or two fresh into being a grandmother and poised to be one of the kindest grandmas imaginable.

my parents get there, and i am told that "i need to sit down." i take a step back and point at them, immediately piecing it together, "ah, you're about to tell me someone is dead." my almost standoffish reaction a spontaneous attempt at not getting swept in tears, i suppose. she apparently passed just last night, and my parents didn't want to shock me over the phone - i imagine it probably hurt a lot for them to hear i wanted to see her when she'd just passed. she took a serious turn for the worse very recently, to the point that the last news i heard was only a couple of weeks old and very optimistic. she'd had breast cancer for well less than a year and was the kind to get yearly mammograms, but it was hyper-aggressive, took her quickly, and then she responded badly to some new treatment and just fucking died.

i hadn't seen her in months. everyone said she had like a year left. just, boom. felt like finding out an actor i liked passing of cancer was going to be the worst part of the day, but hey, why not take someone as good as family, too. i was devastated and having a hard time keeping it together. i'm still very upset and worried about attending the funeral with the shape of my mental state, this year.


anyway, i coped by... finding out about the regalsin rabbithole thanks to GP's recent thread, and spending the night on a discord call with several friends taking turns reading aloud through this thread that BIL linked a post from. many laughs were had by all! nothing like coping with the awfulness of the human condition by laughing at quotes from some of its highest absurdity.

syd mead (86) just passed. aside from his obvious works, this guy was an influence to countless classic games' aesthetics (and directly involved in designing the craft for a forgettable pc engine game).

300 films too. Absolute legend.

It's sad but understandable that so many Japanese film stalwarts have died recently. Oshima, Wakamatsu and Suzuki all in the last decade. At least they all left behind such immense bodies of work to catch up on.

As much as Terry Jones is loved for his Python work, he made some fantastic documentaries in his later years devoted to disproving antique propaganda that's lingered to this day.

My favorite one was called "The Barbarians" I think, about disproving Roman propaganda about the Barbarian cultures they genocided, but youtube hasn't been cooperative in coughing up any links today.

:shock: Sorry bud, I'd no idea. Of all the skits, too! :sad: I am blind to such things, resolutely putting the boot into the fat cats and Fat Matts alike by turning on That Pesky Adblock™ Image *Ublock, rather!

Yes, he did some excellent stuff! I'd lulled myself into a sense that he was larking about with Michael Palin somewhere... had no idea he was so ill. I always associate these guys with my dad's generation, keep forgetting they're a good ten-fifteen years older.

Good show, Terry. ;-;7

Very interesting. Curious if these made it to DVD now.
