  • DeCarlo Rules: @TM - "They" is Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa. Just him. HE's the writer of both AWA and ChAoS. It's HIS story. He only writes an issue when his muse inspires him. Plus he's kinda busy being the showrunner and one of the head writers for RIVERDALE, which ACP probably considers a little more important. And from Sacasa's POV, I know television work must pay a helluvalot better than writing comic books. Especially if they're comic books published by ACP. Could someone else write those horror comics? Sure, if ACP's Chief Creative Officer decided to assign the books to someone else. At that point sales would probably just nosedive anyway, so what's the point? Better to let other writers make up their own horror stories using ACP characters.

General Discussion / What is to become of me and my collection?
« on: September 26, 2017, 08:34:37 PM »

Hi all!  Long time no see!  So, maybe you have (or haven't noticed) my absence for over half a year or so now.  There is a reason for this.  I have been dealing with problems in my family life, and problems with my future.  Here is the 411:


Myself:  I am doing rather well, actually.  I have made many advances in my education, and social life.  I have cut ties to people that are extreme in every sense of the word, and (even though I have been gaining more weight), I have been eating better!  Life has never been better!


My education:  I AM ALMOST DONE!  I am amazed at how far I have come in my life.  I am hoping to attend University in Japan in the coming years.


My employment:  As of right now, I am technically not employed.  I have held two jobs in the past that did not turn out so well.  As of right now, I sort of work for PD Staffing, and they send me wherever they need within a 50 mile radius of my home, but other than that, I don't have a job.  However, next summer I am going home to Alaska to do some mining work for $4600 for 2 weeks on, 2 weeks off.


My collection:  This is probably what you all came here to see.  My collection.  It hasn't really grown, or shrank.  I got a neighborhood kid interested in Archie, but that's about as far as its gone.  My problem is, that I plan on living in a different country every 2 years (or less), and cannot have much stuff.  Luckily for me, I am a datahoarder, so I have a digital copy of everything I physically own (yes, including most of my archies).  At a point, I hope to scan what I don't already have a digital copy of, and make a copy of it myself!  I am currently at 41TB of stuff, and climbing by 3TB a month!


Moving:  As of this time, I don't have any concrete plans of moving.  However, in 2019, I plan to move to Japan.  I have not decided where to live there, but I am sure I will be able to choose soon.


Travel:  GOOD NEWS!  I should be able to go on a service mission through ANY church to ANY of the places that were battered by Hurricane Irma, to help rebuild for the people that live there.  I hope to leave in December, but this can change.


That's about it.  Questions?  Thoughts on my life thus far?

All About Archie / Riverdale Episode 5
« on: February 24, 2017, 09:33:26 AM »
Cheryl learns that she will not be allowed to speak at Jason's memorial. Jughead and Kevin discover that Betty is going on a date with Trev for the purposes of gathering information, while Coach Clayton pits Archie and Reggie against each other for the coveted spot of team captain. Archie is introduced to Oscar, who asks him to write his songs down. Trev informs Betty that Jason had become much more secretive in the weeks before his death, and was rumored to be selling drugs. Jughead suggests searching the Blossom family mansion for clues. Archie injures his hand during practice, and confesses to Veronica that he feels torn between pursuing his music or football. While cleaning the diner, Hermoine finds a box with a snake inside it, a warning from the Serpents. Cheryl attends the memorial wearing a white dress (the one she wore when Jason died), and breaks down during her address. Betty and Jughead meet Jason's grandmother, who mistakes her for Polly and tells her not to let Penelope know that she and Jason were engaged. Betty learns that her family has long hated the Blossoms since their great-grandfather cheated them out of their fortune years ago. Archie is named captain, but turns it down to focus on his music. Jughead and Polly deduce that Hal is responsible for stealing the evidence.

All About Archie / Riverdale Episode 4
« on: February 17, 2017, 03:41:27 AM »

Synopsis: Jughead discovers an anonymous buyer for the drive-in plans to tear it down and launches a battle to keep it open; Betty's friendship with Archie takes a hit after she uncovers shocking information about Miss Grundy's past. Meanwhile, Veronica confronts her mother about a suspicious meeting between her and a shady Southside Serpent; and after uncovering Betty's diary, Alice seizes the opportunity to destroy Archie's golden-boy image.


Review:  Aside from the anti gun Propaganda, this was a good episode.  The ending surprised me, as I never really thought of Jug as living at the drive in.  He homeless now.  His father is a gang banger.  Wonder what next week will be like!

« on: July 23, 2016, 05:53:22 AM »

**Character Episode Guide**

The following list is a breakdown of which episodes each character has filmed so far. This is not a confirmed list, but it's based on very thorough tracking and should be mostly on point.

Rick - 1,4,5
 Carl - 1,4,5
 Michonne - 1,4,5
 Daryl - 1,2,4
 Maggie - 1,5
 Glenn - 1
 Carol - 3
 Morgan - 3
 Abe - 1
 Sasha - 1,5
 Eugene - 1,4(?),6
 Rosita - 1,4,6
 Tara - 6
 Aaron - 1,4,5
 Negan - 1,2,4
 Dwight - 1,2,4

 Enid - 4,5
 Father Gabriel - 4

*Note: There is a rumored dream sequence that takes place in episode 1. Supposedly it features just about all the main characters in Alexandria. This information is not reflected on this list. So characters like Carol, Morgan, etc should also be in a small scene in episode 1 if the rumor is correct.

General Discussion / The Job of a Preserver of Culture
« on: May 13, 2016, 12:47:06 AM »
Is one of utter importance.  I don't think that they get the respect they (we) deserve.  We dedicate our lives to preserving the dreams of Mankind.  We don't just preserve ONE thing (even though some of us might).  There are many topics, ranging from Sports, to Television, to Games, to Music, to Movies, and so forth and so on.  To give a perspective, there are about 100 sports Televised throughout the world.  Of that, about 30% are filmed here in the United States (a major feat of accomplishment).  Here is a scope of Professional games, and how many of them are filmed per day in the U.S:

MLB: 5-10
NBA: 2-7
NHL: 1-5
NFL: 4-19

And that is just the main sports.  We aren't counting sports like Soccer (American), Boxing, WWE,WNBA,ROCK WALL CLIMBING,GOLF, WFC, and so forth and so on.  That's just in THE UNITED STATES!  There is an estimated 200-1000 NEW Sporting Events throughout the DAY around the World!  EVERYDAY!!!  And even then, we haven't even begun to scratch the surface.  There's also College, High School, Middle School, Elementary School, Junior High.  A total estimate is around 30000 Sporting Events daily, about 10,000 of which are filmed!  THAT IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR ONE PERSON TO DOWNLOAD AND ORGANIZE, PER DAY!  ALSO, THAT IS JUST ONE CATEGORY.  THERE IS ALSO:

PORN
MOVIES
TV SHOWS
MUSIC
COMICS
BOOKS
ANIME
MANGA
MAGAZINES
DOCUMENTS

And so forth and so on.  If it were possible to download EVERYTHING that is filmed, made, written, etc. in a day's time, you would have close to 5 PETABYTES of data PER DAY!  That is the same size a Gram of DNA can hold!  PER DAY!  HEAR THAT?  PER DAY!  Then there is the case of having to do a MASSIVE (MASSIVE) BACKLOG Of content.  I'm not even counting Twitter, Facebook, Social Media, Photos, or YOUTUBE (MASSIVE, ABOUT 5 NEW EXABYTES OF DATA PER YEAR!).  In one Day, you would use up about 1500 3 TB Seagate External Drives (like I have).  IN ONE DAY!  And my Download speed is horrible!  So, I urge you, ALL OF YOU!  HELP PRESERVE OUR CULTURE, BEFORE ITS TOO LATE!!!  Thank You.

So, I recently came across some real Snuff.  (Damn you deep web!!!)  And it prompted me to ask this question, What is the most disturbing thing you've ever seen/saw/heard/read?

General Discussion / General Thoughts on Current and Future Tech.
« on: April 24, 2016, 07:20:41 PM »
This is the discussion thread for Current and Future Tech, and why we love it, and hate it!


Ok.  Let me start off by saying, Technology doubles every 18 months.  With that in mind our current 4k TV's will be outdated in one and a half years.  By that time, 8K will be prominent, and One and a Half years after that, 16K.  It will continue likes this for awhile, until we decide that we have good enough resolution (never?). 

Timeline:

1080P - 2014
4K - 2015
8K - 2017
16K - 2019
32K - 2021
64K - 2024
128K - 2027
256K - 2030
512K - 2040
1080K - 2060

So, by my estimate, 1080K (not 1080p) will be prominent around 2060.  What will come after that?  I don't know.  Perhaps we will stop making better resolution, or hopefully quantum computing will be mainstream.

Hard Drives:

It is exciting to imagine that all your precious data could fit on ONE drive (with a backup or two, of course)!  So, even though Hard Drives are estimated to only hold 32-36 TB, I'm sure that when the time comes, There will be a breakthrough.  Here is my estimated Timeline:

2016: 12 TB
2018: 24 Tb
2020: 36 TB
2022: 48 TB
2024: 60 TB
2030: 256 TB
2050: 1 PB (Petabyte)
2060: 64 PB
2070: 256 PB
2080: 1 EB (Exabyte)
2090: 12 EB
2100: 128 EB
