so this seems like it might be a real company
It's not a terrible idea; sell white-label products with your own upmarket branding. They just seem to be failing on the "upmarket branding" part.
To be honest, that's pretty much what a lot of brands do to a degree. Ryce mentioned Lynx/Axe - that shit is vile, but they have the money to put behind huge campaigns (perhaps not the same type of upmarket as this is going for, but fair more respected than it should be...)
Well, the movie thread has been pretty successful these past months and I've discovered quite a few gems through it, so why not a TV thread? I didn't bother much with TV for most of my adult life so I've got some catching up to do. Actually, I don't watch TV per se, just download whole seasons of shows and watch them on the PC.
I've currently been sucked into Space: Above and Beyond. The acting is sorta crappy but the combat scenes are surprisingly good, by TV standards anyway. It's reminding me a lot of the movie version of Starship Troopers for a number of reasons, though the show predates the movie by a couple of years.
So what are your favorite shows, megachanners? I'm gonna samefag a little here in a minute as soon as I find the pics I'm looking for...
...you are a horrible human being.
holy fuck, I did it... I finished all ten "official" seasons of MST3K, there's just a few more episodes of season zero I haven't got around to yet. I started last June or July, it took that long.
I feel obliged to make a list of the best ones here but going back over the titles I realize I was mostly drunk the whole time and can't remember which one is which now. Generally, the space adventure flicks and post-apoc ones are OK and there are a few bronze age adventures where there are people on a sea voyage, those are fun too. Anything featuring a man in a rubber monster suit or close ups of insects or animals as giant monsters is generally pretty laughable. And any episode featuring Santa Claus is usually entertaining. These were some standouts though:
Sidehackers - actually fairly watchable on its own, if a little retarded
Fire Maidens Of Outer Space - guest starring Crow's evil twin
Manos The Hands of Fate - widely acknowledged as the worst movie ever made, the writers of MST3K referenced this one for many episodes to come.
Giant Spider Invasion - possibly the funniest heckling job out of the whole series. "Packers win the Superbowl!"
Godzilla vs. Megalon - fucking hilarious... four giant monsters in a tag team death match. Not the most serious movie in the first place.
The Rebel Set - an old b+w crime caper with some beatniks. I actually enjoyed this one, which was the first clue that I was spending too much time immersed in these shitty movies.

Locking the thread cause it's stopped bumping and I made a new one here: http://www.megachan.net/disc/res/5045.html
Feel free to copy/paste this post into the new one, this thread'll be drifting into the bowels of Megachan soon.
Post projects, ask questions, post links, tips, tricks, and discuss DIY topics of any kind.
>pic is me soldering a larger pig-tail antenna, made from standard electrical house wire, onto a smaller wi-fi antenna.
Speaking of the sounds system, seems it doesn't have an 8-track. Just LP, radio, and cassette. It's caps are massive. 75v 8200uF. Massive transistors with massive heatsinks and a honking XBOX HEUG transformer hiding in the upper right of the pic; it is bigger than my fist. Everything is massive actually; note the magic marker as reference. The marker is 5" x 3/4". I'll need to break out the solder wick on this one I think, I don't have much left though.
Those old caps only have so long to live, but could come in handy while they survive.
Picking through the backpages of /disc/ because I'm bored, I rediscovered this thread. Sort of on the lo-tech side compared to the rest of your projects but my housemates built a sauna recently. It was framed with 2x4's and the walls are made from wood slabs with a plastic vapour barrier in between to hold the steam in. The roof is a corrugated tin roof from a shed and the flooring is some slabs of slate that my roommate had lying around for no apparent reason. It's heated by a wood stove. I didn't have much to do with it, but helped nailing up the walls.
I was skeptical at first because it seemed a bit large inside, a lot of volume in there to heat up, but it works fine. Takes a few hours to get toasty but it's well worth the effort. I'd post some better pics but it's dark out now. You can feel the odd draft in there but it'll do for summertime... it will need some more work before next winter though.
I went back about 5 pages and didn't see one through all the dust and cobwebs of those ancient threads.
Post what you've watched recently and how it was.
Yeah, I saw that years ago at the wasting time after Rocky Horror rehearsal.
It was okay.
I guess it seems a lot cooler if you saw it when you were a kid.
and this thread has surpassed its bump limit... goin' down!
Well I'm not going down with it...
(Will lock this and start a new one w/ link to here in the new thread)
Hey space nerds... did you see Venus and Jupiter together in the sky last night or tonight? It's pretty awesome. They are gazing through my window together right now. It's a bit cloudy and there aren't many stars to see but they are shining through somehow. I just had to tell someone.
If you're on the right part of the planet when you see this thread and the sky is clear, go outside and look.
pic not related
Saw it last night. Was kind of impressed. Didn't realize what I was looking at, at first. "Gee, those two stars are bright, and I usualy can't see stars with the light pollution around here."
>meet Chuck Norris in a bar
>he asks you to buy him a drink (nohomo)
>what do you buy him
Chuck, my man, how much money do you make? Now, here's what I make, or, rather, *don't* make. So, based on that, you can buy me the drink, OK?
I fucking love you guys.
So he's backing the chubby philanderer over the stiff Ivy League asshole, the anti-contraception anti-pornography anti-fun idealist, the nutjob with the dickhead fanbase, and especially the fuck-up incumbent who knows nothing about the real world outside of Chicago-style politics? OH NOES.
A beer on me.
(And yes, I meant "chubby philanderer" in a good way.)
Is... is this art?
That's every chihuahua i've ever seen. Male or female...
"Truth about war in Libya"
Huh, I always thought "frog" was just a term anglo Canadians used against french Canadians... according to the internet, I was wrong.
you've never heard of frogs before? What distant alien planet do you come from?
> What distant alien planet do you come from?
Ganymede actually. And its not a planet at all, its a moon. Hmmpf. Terrestrial scum.
Hi, looking for a gif from Ghost in the Shell, with a Tachikoma running across the screen (at the bottom).
Has anyone seen this?
Try one of the boorus.
Thanks for the tip, but no success so far...
Appreciate any input on the subject
Hey all, just wanting to make a skydiving / B.A.S.E Jumping thread.
If you skydive, post pics and tell us why you do it, favorite DZs, etc.
NOW if you're a B.A.S.E jumper,
show pics and tell us why you do it and tell us your story :D
Oh God... I'm with >>4508... not cool with heights. I thought I was, but after that description I think I'll stick to the good old ground, maybe shallower bodies of water if I'm feeling intrepid.
Two broken legs I could deal with... I mean it would suck hard but I could survive it. Intense pain, followed hopefully by some pleasant drugs, then lay back and catch up on my reading for a few months. It's a head injury that I really don't like the thought of.
But google tells me that skydiving related injuries are actually uncommon, (and that there are no reliable stats for BASE jumping because it is usually illegal anyway). Still, not gonna happen as I stated previously.
Personally, I like heights. Don't know if I'll ever get the chance to try jumping, but if I do I'd totally go for it. It looks like a thrill.
