  1. Make-A-Movie Draft Discussion Thread

    So December 2 is the deadline to post it here, PM it to you, or is that just the day that the thread goes up?

    Nah, I usually put them on sandwiches. Or eat them plain, with my fingers, usually while drunk. Though a pickled pearl onion makes a good martini garnish.

    Unless I’m remembering incorrectly, the very origin of IPAs was that beer being shipped to India in the olden days had a tendency to spoil before they arrived, so IPAs came into being as a super bitter beer to do that. I’ve never heard of IPAs being sweet by design. And every IPA I ever tried before they became such a popular beer was really bitter.

    If we haven't decided which way we're going yet, I'd advocate for a new thread so we can edit our posts. Easier to get it done that way, especially if I want to steal some formatting from other people.

    I usually do a quick pickle for onions. I save the pickle juice (usually sweet or bread and butter), pour in a quarter cup of red wine vinegar to strengthen it, then cut onions into strips and put them in there for a day or two. Deliciousness follows. I don't think I've ever done a from scratch pickle for onions, except when they're just there to support okra.

    I think at this point, claim any other cast or crew you want that weren't drafted, and if multiple people want the same folks, we sort that out via draft order.
  7. Home Improvement/Remodel Thread

    Well, the sink has two little tabs on the back, so we set those within the brackets we could get, and screwed those into the studs in the wall. To make it doubly secure, my dad welded some angle iron together, and we bolted it through the little peg leg things at the bottom, then lined it up to the studs, drilled holes in the metal, and screwed it to the wall with concrete screws, after we filled up the rim with liquid nails and pressed it to the surface of the wall. It's secure.

    Seeing as how acetic acid is a weak acid with a pH of 4.7 or so and your stomach acids have a pH as low as 1.5, not much.
  9. Home Improvement/Remodel Thread

    Well, since the sink is 107 years old, there wasn’t an accompanying bracket in the box. We doubled it up, and bolted it to the studs in two places, with liquid nails for good measure. It’s secure now.

    I was planning on putting my plot in spoiler tags, because if anyone wants to read the best sci fi story ever written in the near future, I would prefer that they just didn’t read the plot summary. Ubik is one of a handful of books that I recommend to everyone, and there are some twists you probably won’t want to see coming. If you’re in the same posture, maybe do a tagline summary without spoilers so people can at least get an idea of what you’re doing.

    Vinegar in general is great. Onions too. And when their powers combine, you get pickled onions, which are even better.

    I guess I meant more like logistics than actual rules. Deadlines, where we submit, and how we vote would be what I meant. I was hoping we could either vote for multiple movies or do ranked choice. A lot of interesting ideas. It’ll be hard for me to pick just one.
  13. Make-A-Movie Draft Discussion Thread

    @rackcs So, give us the write up rules.
  14. Make-A-Movie Draft Discussion Thread

    I’m fine with that, @Outpost31. I already casted my movie and just need my composer whenever my next pick is, and I already said I’m taking Danna. Looks like I missed a lot of inactivity today. Seems like a good time to wrap it IMO.
  15. Home Improvement/Remodel Thread

    No, it’s a cast iron sink from 1912. We did both, just to be sure. The wall mounting studs that were available just didn’t look trustworthy.
