Watching pinball man cave videos while having a nice cold beer. That's how to watch a manly gaming video; beer.

I’m rubbing off my little nephew.

He loves the TMNT shirts we bought him so much that he wants to wear them all the time, and then one morning he tells his grandma, “I dreamed of ninja turtles!”

No total eclipse here, but over 88% was still cool to see. Had some clouds to contend with peak onwards, so viewing was sporadic, but on the up side some thinner clouds made is safely visible to the eye and let me get a few pics post-peak. (We did have the glasses/viewing cards for the breaks in the clouds.)


edit: The good part about having clouds, if some spots aren't too thick.

We got a full view of the solar eclipse for two minutes! Thank God we had good weather today. It was AMAZING! I played “Black Hole Sun” on my iPad during the event and that made the experience even more awesome! I couldn’t help but hoop and holler, I was just so exited, and I even started to cry afterwards.

Awesome, were you in an area of totality?

Do wish I could also have gotten a pic at peak here, when it was just a skinny sliver.

I hung out outside in our yard the majority of the time, and did at least get to see much of it from start to finish.

Here outside Chicago, we had as much as 94% coverage of the sun and it looked a little dark, but darker inside my house. My cat might of reacted because as it was happening, he looked up at the window with a confused look.

Oh yeah! Because the weather in our area was so nice and we would get a full view, about a thousand people traveled to our town. I don’t think we’ve ever been this popular before, lol.

We watched it on our driveway. The air got cooler and the atmosphere felt…off. Even our bodies were starting to feel a bit weird. Then it slowly got darker until finally the moon blocked the sun and we staring up at the total solar eclipse. It’s one thing to watch the event live on TV; to watch it happen with your own eyes in your own front yard is a whole different experience and it’s unforgettable. It was like being in a strange new dimension, it was that unreal.

That's crazy. I'll prob never seen a total one... According to info I looked up, the last total in my area was in the 1400s and the next, well, 9 days after my 100th birthday, so yeah, doubt I'll make it. lol (And if I did, would I even be aware?)

Light got odd here too of course, not dark, but like a weird evening light, but from the wrong angle. People say birds get quiet(er), but not sure they did with this amount of dimming, or at least I couldn't tell. A bunch of sparrows decided to spend the time fighting over bird houses instead. They actually gave up and settled down AFTER it was getting lighter again. lol

Some people say they even hear crickets during an eclipse.

Anyway, this was what we saw right over our house.



Like I said, it was incredible. And listening to “Black Hole Sun” while it happened…wow.

So lucky, that must have been amazing.

Prob around the first 30 second mark looks like what we saw here, then it started widening up at the bottom again.

Was tossing out garbage the other day and noticed some kid drew a Turtle. Thought that was pretty cool!

Ha! Too bad it was already in the garbage, otherwise if it was me I'd have rescued it. lol But at least he lives on, online.



April so far... rare but moderate, not scary earthquake for some excitement, 88% covered eclipse for some excitement, Last Ronin film announcement for some excitement, friend and I BOTH got perm mounts in loot in one of our games last night ($15 each if bought with real money) and been so long since we got anything cool like that, *cough* b-day coming up (albeit ignoring the number), then TMNT's own 40th coming soon after in the start of next month... Things are being kinda fun right now.

Today the weather here in Chicago is in the mid 70s. I spent the day going out to The Olive Garden with my mom and stepfather and then take a nature walk. Tomorrow it's suppose to be around 80, but I have a lot of cleaning up to do in my man cave studio.

We hardly ever get good weather in this stupid country (not sure what the weather be's like down south I live up at the north part of Ireland). The weather can't make up it's mind what it wants to do. One minute the sun comes out then next it starts pouring down with rain. There was even one day there was hail stones. Don't even get that nice spring air smell anymore either.

Tempted to make a companion thread to the childhood stories one, but this time Aging Parent Humor.


Mom to sister this evening: Hey, you still have your dimple (in her left cheek).

Sister is smiling still, saying something like "Yeah, I guess so."

Mom: Did you know that's a flaw?


Sister basically:



Me right there like:





Mom went on to explain she'd heard it's a "flaw" in genetics, not a bad thing, but it was much too late. LOL

I may have to remind my sister for a while that I do not possess such grave flaws like she does.

Do other state's Reddit subs occasionally have mock invasion plans against each other (and other friendly ribbing), or is this mainly just a thing in this part of the Mid Atlantic and/or a small state thing?

Currently it's MD wanting to invade and take the whole Delmarva peninsula from DE and VA. DE sub has posted it, but not shared any plans. The VA sub has now jumped in and drawn up defensive battle plans.

edit: Hearing whispers that WV and D.C. might join the battle, but not yet sure of their alliances.


Last time it kept spreading with various regional state's plans to take over each other, I think it eventually got as far as NY in on it that time, or was that Jersey or PA wanting to take NY...

What made me happy is my Goku sweat coat came in and I'm wearing it, even though it's a little small and tight on me. It looks great. I'm glad I now have it.

But I'll tell you what didn't make me happy today and that is my best friend ignoring me since last night. Yesterday he promised to call last night at 9:30 and it's now 5:51 PM and he still won't call or answer the phone if he has it turned on. I hate people that make promises and then they leave you hanging for an extended period of time!

My Panasonic DP-UB820EB 4K player arrived today, it's big and chunky compared to the LG DVD player I have Ordered a bunch of 4K's, can't wait for them to arrive. I've noticed when trying out an episode from the Ultimate Collection box set of the 2003 TMNT, scenes kept going blurry, I didn't really get that problem when playing the same episode on my LG DVD player I actually got to watch 13 episodes from Season 4 of the 2003 TMNT on my uncle's DVD player, he wasn't feeling the best so he fell asleep on his chair, he told me I could do a marathon of the turtles while he slept
