  1. Yeah VHS 94 was not great. If I were to put together a "best of" of VHS shorts, it would be the following: - The one with the documentary crew investigating the cult in Malaysia, and ends with that amazing car chase. This is hands down the best short in the series. - The succubus one. Too bad the follow up movie based on it sucked. - The one with the guy who opens a portal to a different parallel dimension where the other people have freakish monster-like genitals. - the zombie one where a guy gets turned into a zombie while his goPro is attached to his head.
  2. And then Episode 5... holy ####. The only negative thing I can say about the show is the number of looooong monologues where it's just one character going off for 5 minutes or more. Such deep thinkers for a boring fishing village.
  3. I know it’s a hot take, but I just love the exploration of how vampirism could be interpreted by religion, and I feel like they executed it perfectly. And yes, I’ve seen both those movies.
  4. I'm only 5 episodes in on Midnight Mass, but here's a hot take. So far, it's the best vampire story I've ever seen. The melding of vampirism and the ugly side of Christianity is simply brilliant.
  5. Lake Mungo is one of the better found footage movies, but found footage is really hit or miss for a lot of people, understandably so. Some of the better ones I like are: The Taking of Deborah Logan Creep 1 and 2 REC - (the Spanish one, NOT the American remake) Trollhunter V/H/S Series The Borderlands Savageland Hell House LLC As Above, So Below Grave Encounters Of that list, REC is probably the best if I'm being honest. It's rare for a found footage movie to be good and scary all the way throughout. Most are 75% filler, but this one delivers from start to finish. And the ending is one of the scariest and most tense I've ever seen.
  6. What's the current science around people who have both had COVID and are vaccinated and how likely they are to get/spread delta if they have been exposed to it?
  7. That's what I thought. This is the language from her doctor verbatim. "While there is not enough data about the additional J&J vaccine dose, in our opinion there is minimal risk in receiving the additional vaccine dose."
  8. My wife is eligible for a booster now since she is immunocompromised. We initially got J&J, and not sure which booster to get. Her instructions from the doctor are not very clear either. They basically say there is not a lot of data out there on J&J and boosters and that it is up to the pharmacy to determine if she can get a booster other than J&J. Should she be shopping for a Moderna/Pfizer booster or get another J&J at this point? Or just do whatever the pharmacy says? Part of me just wants to get two shots of Moderna and forget we ever got J&J.
  9. Any of you Portlanders know of any local fantasy football leagues with openings for this year? Missing the local one I was in back in California.
  10. I could hang out at Top Golf every day.
  11. I have to agree. Only been here a year, and with the pandemic/protests/etc it was a really down year for Portland, and I love it. I can only imagine once things get closer to normal.
  12. Fear Street was good, but man the first half of the movie tried to hard to cram every pop song made in 1994 down our throats.
  13. We are in the Southeast near the Woodstock neighborhood. What’s funny is that we are literally surrounded by neighbors who have all recently transplanted to Portland. I will echo other people’s complaints about traffic and homeless but neither make me not want to live here. Maybe it’s because where I came from in the SF Bay Area, we had the same issues.
  14. There’s one right up the street from me that advertises gluten free lap dances.
  15. I can hopefully help answer any questions you may have. My wife and I moved here about a year ago from California. We love the city. The food scene is amazing. We can’t get over how green it is. A 15 minute drive from our house has us in a forest or along the Columbia gorge. From what you describe, it sounds like you’d want to live east of the river. It has distinct neighborhoods with their own feel. Sort of like a little suburbia within the big city. House prices also differ by neighborhood, but there are beautiful homes here. Downtown has had a bit of a depressed feel until recently due to a combination of the pandemic and protests causing businesses to shutter. It’s slowly coming back to life though. No sales tax is pretty cool too.
  16. If we're talking about lod001's post, it was blatant spreading of misinformation. There was no intelligent discussion to be had around it. Glad it's gone.
  17. 2 questions around Kelce this year for me. 1. Are his age and this back/hip soreness a concern? 2. Is the rest of the field catching up? Kelce has been so far and above better than his next best replacements that the value he gave was tremendous. I've had him 2 years in a row in my auction league because of this. Are Kittle, Waller, and maybe a few others going to catch up and eat into this value?
  18. I keep seeing articles that say things like "Dont worry, the breakthrough rate for COVID is .1%" but they dont clarify if that number is for all strains of COVID or just Delta. I'm guessing the former. I want to know what it is for Delta. That's all that matters at this point.
  19. I'm back to N95s for the sole reason that there's still so much we dont know about Delta. The number of anecdotal symptomatic infections among vaccinated people has been enough to get me to do this.
  20. Isn't there enough evidence from India, Israel and UK on what it does to kids?
  21. People have always been mentally fragile. It’s only now being properly handled. Before, you’d stick people with mental issues in a psychiatric ward and forget about them.
  22. What if insurance companies started not covering COVID hospital stays for people who choose not to vax? How do we convince them to get the shot without taking away their precious freedom and just forcing them to.
  23. In Seattle for the weekend. There is a gosh darn cruise ship parked here that seems to be filled with anti-maskers. I was hoping One of the few good things about COVID would be the death of the cruise industry, but that obviously isn’t happening. We were going to check out Pike Place then saw insane unmasked crowds and just kept on driving. People are stupid.
