So far Borderlands 3 is a prettier version of Borderlands 2 with some of the more annoying game quirks (pressing a button to pick up things like money and ammo and instanced loot). I'm really enjoying it so far.

I don't actually care that you posted that here but just pointing out there are other threads on the bore which are full of very nice people talking about vidya

I love Norm but this Cameo shit is pathetic. Celebrity worship culture is the worst. Guess he's got debts or something man. Don't gamble  :fbm

There's nothing pathetic about asking for nearly $400 to do jack shit. Anyone that asks for less than two hundred is pathetic, but only an idiot turns down like nearly half a grand to record a voicemail

If it's so easy, why charge money? Because they want the money more than they want dignity. I'm sorry, but anyone who does this shit is debasing themselves. Maybe my problem is I have too much pride: but i'd rather have too much than too little.

May as well be a prostitute or one of those guys who signs shit at comic-con.

You're a fucking moron.  Have fun working open mics for another 10 years.

:lol That's a bit brutal but a paid job is a paid job. Is it any more "debasing" than to fly to shitty cons or events to go do over and over again the one thing people remember ? It's not dignified or classy perhaps and it must be pretty depressing but you're still paid to perform which at the end of it is the core of the work. And if the only meal ticket you have is being the R2D2 guy or being the bagel guy, then by jove you'll give the audience what they want. As an artist you probably have to be thankful people remember you at all.

I think it's a nice service for people who want that sort of thing, for ages people used to ask every celeb on the street if they would record a funny message on their friend's answering machine, might as well get paid for it

presumably everyone involved is happy?  unless they do a shit job on the message

I'm pretty sure i'm good, but of course i'm cognizant of the fact that people have a natural bias to see themselves as more talented than they actually are, which goes ESPECIALLY for people in the entertainment industry, who I feel are usually drawn to it because they are delusional narcissists and people's approval is deeply ingrained in their own self-worth. At least, that's how I got into it.

it's really simple

don't say good things about one particular race but also don't say bad things about that race but also don't throw up your hands and just refuse to say anything about that race because then you're marginalizing them and minimizing their presence in media

Honestly all of humanity somehow making it past the Cuban Missile Crisis just makes me think we're on borrowed time anyways.

But I don't have control over situations like that so IMO it isn't worth thinking about. If it happens we're all fucked anyways. :idont

Resetera thought experiment: Would I be expected to respect Ben Shapiro's preferred pronoun if he came out as non-binary or trans?

It's currently acceptable to call Shapiro an asshole, cunt, nazi, bitch, piece of shit, fascist and any other number of names that express disrespect.

Presumably if he transitioned it would still be acceptable to call him all those things, but would ketkat or spreadsheet hop on your shit if you called him "he" whilst doing so? Pronouns are apparently all about respect so if I have none for a person, why the fuck should that be an exception to how I talk about them?

This is not unexpected in the least.

I've been noticing this phenomenon acutely

especially the part about people slowly devolving into wild-eyed shrieking bundles of nerves who have nightmares about the spectre of fascism

take any given era member or twitter activist, it really doesn't take long to find A) a multitude of causes they believe are the most important thing ever, followed by B) clear evidence that they live a joyless existence and their mental health is in the toilet

Ree tried to cancel Contrapoints because she tried to personalize the whole pronoun aspect of society. So yes, they would be bastards to be people they don't like even if Shapiro or any other person they don't like reveal themselves to be part of a marginalized group.

Fuck, just look at how they tried to cancel Dave Chappelle and claim he has no idea how people who considered themselves marginalized feel.

yeah they would immediately call into question his sincerity (and in this case wouldn't be wrong to do so)

some might make an intentional point of not respecting his new pronouns, and then other members would call them out for how it makes them uncomfortable, because we shouldn't normalize disrespect of anyone's pronouns, and the first people would snap back and there would be bans and warnings on both sides until the mods decided on an acceptable stance and started locking threads about it


there are plenty of traitors to the cause, they tend to respect their pronouns but they'll call them all sorts of names

Nope. My own personal opinion is that the world and its people have never been in a better position.

I have faith that we will create solutions to all of our problems at some point in the near future, including climate change. I mean, look at how far we've come in the past 20 years alone. Renewable energy has been adopted at a faster rate than anyone thought possible, even in 2000. Medical science is unrecognisable compared to 30 years ago and life expectancy is exponentially higher. We have not had a large scale conflict since 1945 and diplomacy has emerged in the last 100 years since the end of WWI as a genuine way of solving international problems.

Labour laws protect more workers from inhumane conditions and democracy had never been more widespread. Our standard of living is phenomenally greater than even my parents' generation, who grew up in small villages with no running water and no electricity.

This narrative that the world is falling apart is one of the biggest fallacies of the current generation. Sure, things are hard for young people, but when have they not been? My Dad was only able to get an 8th grade education and my Mum was told she should leave school at the end of year 10. Compare that to my own generation where a university education is expected and almost a right for boys and girls and we are amazingly better off.

If you think the world's is falling apart, then you haven't been paying attention to the last 100 years and you certainly know fuck all about the plight of humanity for the last 1000 years.

Norm Macdonald said that after he started standup, it took him 5 years to realise he was good enough to be a professional-level comedian. After the first year he thought he was good enough, then after second year he thought he wasn't, then it took him 3 more years to realise he actually was.

You can listen to any music and watch any movie to the end. There is not a test in the middle of the film to prove you are understanding the message.

In games there's no way at all, unless you cheat.

:insane :mindblown

Gameplay is not a "test" to gate content, it's supposed to be the content.

spoiler (click to show/hide)
In reality you can't generalize, there's some games where the story is definitely front and center and the gameplay is a wrapper or vessel for it. But those will already have the designer scaling down the interaction and the challenge or provide an easy mode.

I also get :trigger that competitive games gets brushed to a "does not apply" asterisk when they're pretty integral to the notion of gaming in the broader sense.

If Norm is the best comedian how come Carrot Top is worth $70 mil while Norm's doing voice mails for $400?

This is pathetic. That poster is pathetic.

When Resident Evil 3 Remake actually is a thing 5 years from now, Resetera is going to act like those years of them "knowing" it was real were true.
I would be surprised if Resetera hasn’t already been shut down by the FBI or secret service when we get to five years from now.

Imagine writing that and thinking, yep, I nailed.  Must be how it feels to be Transhuman.
Bob keeps winning and has very high energy.

Sally keeps losing and is 'so tired' and unemployed which is why she hooked up with Bob to get some sweet big conservative money.

Norm McDonald is overrated; he’s the new bill hicks for guys that know comedy names and want cred points. Tho Hicks was funny, so maybe it’s bit the best comparison.

Norm is pretty much the only comedian I care about. Though as with all things in life, after listening to everything that he has ever done i'm starting to get diminishing returns. But that's my fault.

Norm's thoughts on Hicks:

Yeah, it’s horrible. So I don’t like satire that much, and also these guys [contemporary talk-show hosts] are nightclub comics. They’re not Bob Dylan. They’re just guys, and they get talk shows and suddenly they’re telling me how I shouldn’t be sad because of the Manchester bombing and I can escape the horrors of life because they’re going to interview someone from Two Broke Girls or whatever the fuck they do. When I was a kid, if I’d heard Red Skelton talking about the government I would’ve thought, This is fucking weird. To me, it hurts the comedy any time anything real creeps into it. I know people have different thoughts. I keep hearing how great Lenny Bruce and Bill Hicks and Mort Sahl are. People have their own taste, but to me, all three of those people are just shit. They’re not comedians in my mind.

On selling out:

Yeah. I would say Sam Kinison. To me, Sam Kinison was the last original voice in comedy that I’d ever heard in standup. He was a big influence personally on me, when I first started. I met him a year in and he let me open for him, before he broke. I remember he was starring in a movie called [‘Atuk.’] And he told me, ‘I just have to rewrite it.’ They’d send him the script and he’d do all these rewrites. And then he’d send it back. And they just went back to the original script. So when he got to set that day, this was his first movie ever, he goes, ‘I can’t do this shit. They changed it all. What happened?’ I’m not trying to bullshit him. And I said, ‘Goddamn, how can you do that? It’s a movie. I’d just say whatever, I just do whatever the guy told me.’

And he said [Macdonald does his Sam Kinison voice], ‘I’d rather never do a movie than a thousand fucking Dan Aykroyd movies!‘ I love Dan Aykroyd, but you know what I mean? The idea of just doing it ’cause it’s offered. But I still do that and it’s not like I learned. I’m the fucking Kentucky Fried Chicken colonel. I’ll sell chicken. I don’t give a fuck.

I remember Bill Hicks used to make fun of Jay Leno, which I thought was kind of audacious because Jay Leno was like a million times funnier. And then he’d say, ‘You stopped being a comedian when you started doing Doritos commercials!’ And I’m like, really? That disqualifies Leno from being funny? I mean Hicks was doing it from a bar where they sold beer, presumably. So you can say he was working for Budweiser.

So I guess I can’t say that because I don’t practice it.

I think the comedian comparison you're looking for is George Carlin

Nah George never had that culty 6-year bachelor degree student “I’m smart but actually a moron” fanbase that Hicks and norm seem to have produced.

Also unlike norm he was funny.

That's exactly what Carlin's audience is though! I don't think we're going to agree on this at all. In my defense funny people definitely think Norm's funny.
