  1. I tried smoking an enormous (8lb) pork shoulder this weekend. It was good, but I was only able to get it about 3 hours of smoke time, so there was no bark at all. I typically cryovac and freeze these things after the bark forms to thaw and put in the crock pot later. But there was really only a hint of smokiness in this effort. Not my best work, sadly.
  2. Does anyone know of any online resources that gives updates on the case? I would very much like to keep up with the events.
  3. Yep. Several of us are over there: @Truth, @Bropollocreed79, @NthnButAGoodTime . . . come join the party! ?
  4. They have a forum just like this one, but dedicated to RDR2. Come check it out. I'm a mod over there. ? https://www.rdr2.com/forums/
  5. It DOES look great, but I HATE FIRST PERSON GAMES!!!! Why can't they just make a toggle . . . ??
  6. Very nice. Someone who can should post a legend of specifically who they all are.
  7. I looked it up. Looks compelling, even though I hate first-person games.
  8. Many of we gamers tend to watch the calendar for the release of a game we're excited about. What's yours?
  9. All the host has to do is wait for the match to end, then kick both out of the lobby. Problem is solved with a little patience.
  10. I'm curious - how does one know when they're in the Salt Mines? Do they get a notification?
  11. Perhaps it helps that I never saw any of those. ? Understand, though. This isn't about being "wronged" or "scorned." This is about an innocent child -- having been raised in 1950's America, which didn't like anything different or unusual in the first place -- tortured and abused throughout his life simply for being born the way he was. His mother -- an innocent herself -- loved him with all her heart. But society refused to let it alone, so it took him from her. To me, that's quite different from having a cheating spouse or somebody just being bullied. To be honest, it truly was the backstory that drew me to the series. I didn't care for it until I knew the depth of the story. Okay, I'll throw you a bone, here. Yes, I definitely think them trying to do 10+ films with a sack-head Jason wouldn't have worked nearly as well. The hockey mask definitely helped. NOW -- that being said, had Michael Myers worn that hockey mask rather than his painted Shatner mask -- would many of the loyal F13 fans instead be loyal Halloween fans? (I'm not saying they have to be one or another. I'm just wondering how many F13 fans would place their affections solely on Halloween, had the masks been different?
  12. I'll go first. I can't speak for the world, but for me personally -- it was the root of the story. Most "killer" characters either didn't have much background development, or were just "evil" to begin with. They could still tell a good story, but they were always "the bad guy" and you were supposed to hope for their victims to survive. With Jason, though -- it was sort of the other way round, wasn't it? Both Jason and his mother started off as victims. They became statistics of a society who either didn't care enough about them to help, or turned an intentional blind eye to their sufferings. Society killed Jason -- the only thing that really mattered to Pamela. So, she snapped. In F13, often the victims are people we AREN'T supposed to like. Then we cheer when Jason RISES again and extracts vengeance for himself and his mother. If we know the whole story, we feel for JASON. As parents, we feel for PAMELA. They are not lashing out because they are evil. They are lashing out because they were forced there by society. Does that make Jason/Pamela sort of "anti-hero" characters? That's open to interpretation. But in these films, we often enjoy seeing Jason clean house, and THEN get to a point where we're ready for him to be stopped. And he is. At least for a while. The formula works, and it's an emotional payoff. That's why this story will always be my favorite.
