Re: Is Qwerpline over?

It's neither over nor on hiatus. They've recorded a few episodes recently, but haven't made them available yet. Likely because of Desert Bus.

Re: Idea for Desert Bus XI. It may be stupid, but...

Not a stupid idea at all but, yes, almost certainly too late for this year's DB. You might suggest it for next year's, though.

Re: Ask Alex and Paul LIVE (PAX West 2017 replacement edition)

So... maybe a little silly, but I've been wondering... what's up with the walls in the new Moonbase? Are they going to remain unpainted? I noticed during the IKEA build stream, as well as during the most recent YouTube update.

(I don't think it's a bad look, just wondering)

Re: Doctor Who

I liked the first 15 minutes of the most recent episode. A lot. But following the twist, I felt it went downhill fast.

Re: Tinker, Tailor, Solder, Fry

Watching the most recent Tabletop Day stream, it struck me that a long format stream like that might be interesting to see for TTSF. The idea is that, over the course of the day, people would switch in and out to work on their particular projects. The interesting part of this arrangement is that it ...

Re: Musical Taste and Anxiety

Yes, I think that's probably an expression of the same thing. It's weird... for whatever reason, it seems that musical taste is in a different category - one more personal and open to judgment - than other expressions of taste. You can say "Bite me, I like sci-fi novels" but you can't say ...

Musical Taste and Anxiety

So I just watched the VOD of the most recent CrapShoot, and one of the sketches they wrote kind of shook loose some thoughts. I'm not sure how coherent this will be, so I'm just going to get it all down and try to ping it off you fine folks. I've never been a terribly musical person. Growing up, mus...

Not sure it had a terribly satisfying ending. "They killed our people! Our friends! Our families!" "Meh. Learn to live with it. Forget it, even, if you can. That's not important. Now pay your murderers rent." That's... not a solution. That's not how people work. That&...

Re: Doctor Who

I enjoyed it. It was an "introduce a new companion" episode for sure, though. Which means, yes, it's going to whisk The Doctor and company all around, and use the excuse of explaining the TARDIS and everything to the new companion as a way to explain it all to a potentially new audience. W...

Re: Arclight_Dynamo's Sports Journey

Huh. Interesting... I did notice, looking at the game schedule, that they seem to play a lot of games compared to other sports. Which, I assume, means that individual games are less important overall, especially in the early season.

Different from what I was expecting.

Re: Arclight_Dynamo's Sports Journey

Right, now that it's spring, all the sports seasons seem to be starting up. I just watched an MLB game - Toronto @ Tampa Bay - and I'm not sure what to think. All the talk about baseball being "slow" is true, but I don't really mind that. In fact, I think I prefer slower games to fast ones...

Re: Alex's Stream Shelter? Safe Spaces? Echo Chambers? DISCUSS.

Well, I mean, I wasn't born with an anxiety disorder. I was born with the tendency to develop one, and certain things in my childhood and teen years caused me to develop one. It's a combination of nature and nurture, probably like allergies. Now, proper treatment and "safe spaces" aren't w...

Re: Alex's Stream Shelter? Safe Spaces? Echo Chambers? DISCUSS.

That's actually a fantastic analogy. As someone whose mental health treatment currently involves exposure therapy, I can tell you that it maps very, very closely to it.

korvys: Yes. Exactly. 100%. I am undergoing exposure therapy as part of my CBT. It is administered by my psychiatrist - a professional - and the most important thing about the exposure is that I'm always totally and completely in control of the entire process . That isn't the case with "tough l...
