Dry Dock Hop Abomination here. Chinook, CTZ, Centennial, Amarillo and Galena hops. The perfect bouquet for a Friday afternoon.

Cheers, guys!

You know what's really lame. After reading about GTA 5 in the other thread, I have a huge desire to go get it. Wife is leaving for two weeks on Monday (well, not really two weeks...Mon thru Thurs then Sunday thru thurs).

Feel like I might have some free time to veg out on the xbox. Must resist the urge.

The Dry Dock sounds wonderful. I have moved on to a Dogfish Head Burton Baton.

WB - it's still in the 90s here in Tejas. Can't do the winter beers quite yet.

I am a bachelor this weekend. I am not a gamer, but I have a weekend of grilling red meat, fine beer and wine, and football ahead of me. And walking the dogs, of course.

The Dry Dock was phenomenal. I've moved on to Stone Sublimely Self Righteous Ale.

Dogfish Head makes some outstanding brews.

Getting ready to walk the dogs here, myself. Might gear up for a game or two of Mario Kart with the kiddo.

ETA: It's 50 degrees and windy here in Colorado. Winter brews are definitely not out of the question.

Truly awesome.

I am not really a gamer either, haven't played a game for 5 years. But I do remember GTA games when I was younger. could be good times after the kids go to bed during the weekdays.

Hmmmm, must resist the urge..because I know I will stay up way to late playing, then not work out in the morning, and struggle getting the kids of to school.

I think the reason I don't play games anymore is that I tend to lack self control when it comes to turning the damn things off.

I got a bottle of the Stone 17th Anniversary Ale today. I will unleash it at some point this weekend. The Sublimely Self Righteous Ale is awesome. Got a couple in the beer fridge.

WB - I actually enjoy gaming, and have played a fair amount with my boys (23, 22, 17) over the years. I stay away for exactly the same reason. Instead, tonight I will instead stay up way too late listening to a bunch of new music I just got. With fWW out of the house, I can play it as LOUD as I want.

I guess it's a sign you're doing OK when the fWW is leaving for the weekend and you can think...'this is going to be awesome...'

Honestly did not intend it that way.

One of the things about getting old is you frequently feel left behind as the world is moving on. I dont even understand allot of the commercials I see on the television these days. And dont even get me started on what passes for comedy these days. Comedy seems vulgar. Commercials are indecipherable and obnoxious. I simply dont get it.

There was an age where I saw my self turning into my father. Now I see my self turning into my Grand father which is very disturbing.

My sons play video games. My middle boy once tried to teach me to play, but I lack the coordination to work the complicated button on the controller. I think that most people that play these games started out young and played simpler games and over time as the complexity gradually grew they learnt and adapted. So its impossible for someone to just jump in to this sort of thing now.

Also. The game my son tried to get me into was a martial arts combat thing. For context I have to tell you that I am a martial artist. 6th dan in one style and 3rd dan in 2 others. I trained for close to 50 years. Anyway the game seemed to be nothing about martial arts to me. It was some kind of magic thing where you could shoot lighting bolts at the other guy. There was no strategy and what martial arts techniques that were available were limited and difficult for me to do. The thing that bothered me the most was the lightening bolts thing. I mean.. seriously? lightening bolts? WTH?

So that was it. Pong. Oh and one game of Pac Man. and then lightening bolts. I dont get it and the world is going to hell in a hand basket.

I understand, sort of. Remember that I'm only 36, though I have worked certain labor jobs long enough that my grampa shot the shit with me about it and played one-ups over it. I felt honored to be included in that, but anyway.

I can speak to the fighting games. I can't watch a movie where an action hero does his wire-fu magic super punches and keep my mouth shut. "Why the fuck doesn't somebody just shoot his waist for a fucking takedown?" Then I'll be watching the Clone Wars series with my kids and point out how the clones are all apparently trained in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu because they frequently use joint manipulation or put enemies into a guard instead of just lay there and get their heads shot off.

Games can be the same. I don't play many fighting games, but the suspension of disbelief for games is the same as for films. If you want to enjoy Indiana Jones you need to accept that motorcycles simply cannot flip and explode that way. Physics says no. Fallout New Vegas is unrealistic in the same way. They both tell great stories.

In fact, when games try for realism they fail hard and suck as games. Very, very few manage to make themselves somewhat realistic and still tell a good story while being fun to play; Metro 2033 is one of those. You try to avoid getting into a firefight not only because ammo is scarce but, well, getting shot fucking kills you. In fact fighting the mutant monsters is safer because people with guns are the most dangerous thing in the game, and if you run into a half dozen nazis while you are playing a realism mode, you better be amazing at the game if you expect to not have to reload. For every one of the Metro 2033 kind of games that succeed at that though, there are a dozen that just suck.

When you're familiar with a subject it can easily get in the way of suspension of disbelief. Any of you gun hobbyists out there, you will have an aneurism trying to sort ammunition types in any of the Fallout games. For the rest of us we have no fucking idea what kind of ammo an FN-FAL uses without looking it up in wikipedia.

FWIW I played Pac-man in 1980 on my pops atari 2600 when he brought it home, a friend of his got an early release. I had just turned 4 years old. I have very few positive childhood memories of my pop but a lot of them actually involve video games. Also Star Wars. They brought me to see ESB at the drive in.

I know I am getting old because I don't fucking understand the point of Apps, myself. Fuck Apps. Give me a goddamned installer and an OS that lets me choose where to put it and none of this "We need your permission to do anything we want to your anus while you sleep" shit you have to sign just to install an e-reader on your phone. Also, why the fuck do people want to watch a fucking movie on their phones? I don't understand that either.

Like aesir said though - games have become a storytelling medium. With that come a lot of great stories - and multitudes of really shitty ones.

As for vulgarity in comedy - how old are you man, George Carlin died years ago and 7 words was years before I was born. You can't tell me you're too old for that.

Beer fridge?? I have one of those, too! My keg is currently empty, though. I need to brew another batch. I'm thinking maybe a smoked rye ale.

Let me know how that Stone Anniversary Ale is. I was eyeing that in the store the other day.

My wife is getting ready to go hang out with her lady friend next door. Looking forward to some "guy time" with the kid.

FM:

Indeed. Wife is going away on two weeks of business. This is the same event (but with a different company) that started her affair two years ago. Hmmm, I actually just realized that.

Strangely I am o.k. with it. I am sure I will have some bad days, but amazingly, I have reached a point where I am not worried about her finding some POSER. Interesting. I am going to think on why I am suddenly not giving a shit. (I mean I am going to miss her--but I am not giving a shit in the affair sense).

Hmmm, could be an interesting topic of discussion over beers tonight.

I saw George Carlin live about 30 years ago. Did a riff on the 7 words. Says, 'I've updated myself for the modern age, <pulls a sheaf of computer paper out of a briefcase (anybody remember THAT kind of computer paper?) and let's the loose end drop to the floor.> It's now 700 words.' Proceeds to read a bunch in his imitable style. Funniest damn thing I ever saw/heard.

fWW is in a very controlled environment this weekend. Daughter got married 2 months ago today. At one point during the reception, MIL demands I NEED TO GO HOME NOW. fWW takes her home. Gone a long time. I give my speech. No fWW. Father/daughter dance. No fWW. Turns out she was speeding on her way back from taking Mommie Dearest home, got stopped, blew .10 and earned a trip to the clink. I spend the latter part of the reception bailing her ass out of jail.

This weekend she is doing court-mandated in-house OWI counseling. Supervised all weekend by the county sheriff.

So, good times.

As an IT professional all I can say about my memories of 'that' paper is: FUCK DOT MATRIX.


Also, just went to take a leak, flip up the seat, ketchup packets carefully folded and set beneath the bumpers of the seat. Arranged so they would explode outward with maximum sprayage to freak mom the fuck out.

It's nice to catch their bullshit before it goes off. So much less to clean up.


eta:

Holy shit FM. At least there wasn't any drama until after everything wrapped up..?

SG - good catch. Entertaining visual though.

Losfer - just opening the 17. Nice beer. Reminds me more of a Pliny (although not as good) than some of the hop bombs out there. They get points as always for the screed on the bottle and the subname... Gotterdammerung. <searches for Wagner on Apple TV...damn...none.>

For those so inclined, Neko Case is awesome.

Who is this Ms. Matrix chick and why do I want to fuck her?

Sam Adams summer for the night. But sadly my W is at work and I'm stuck with the kiddos and I only have 1 beer left - and I don't feel like taking them out to buy another 6-pack.

Besides... was going to go for a run in the morning.

wonderboy - not sure what to make of your attitude towards your WW leaving for 2 weeks... perhaps it is good in a way? Maybe you've learned to concentrate on you, and if she decides to stray again you're to the point where you'd just tell her to F' off and leave, and do so with a clear head?

WB, I'm going to think positive and guess that a lot of the trust in your relationship has been restored.

That's already happening in my case, 7 months post D Day. Since shortly after D Day my wife has texted me all her daily comings and goings. I didn't request it, she started doing it on her own. "Going to the grocery store", "leaving the grocery store," "picking up the kids at school," "at home paying bills", etc. Sometimes it almost drives me crazy, but I get what she's trying to do and really appreciate it. She's accounting for all of her time when we're not together.

It's been said many times on this site that true remorse is shown by actions, not words.

This....Plus This.

Combine the two and you have a lot less anxiety.

I think it is time to crack a winterhook. It is a lot colder up here in the northwest than it was in Phoenix. Brrrr.

That sounds pretty awesome, ForwardMotion. Whenever I pick up a Stone product, I always think to myself "If this shit is half as good as they think it is, then it's going to be some good shit."

It's been said many times on this site that true remorse is shown by actions, not words.

Amen, Sal. This can't be repeated too many times.

Dang man - wish I could get there. Sounds kind of nice. You seem to have both. I have neither.

But - it is what it is. Winterhook sounds tasty. Drink one for me.
