  1. Although this time people will ACTUALLY have to pay ahead of time as I doubt we will have 100+ bucks to foot the bill ahead of time, and it needs to be at an assigned seating place otherwise we will be sitting god knows were, defeating most of the point. This , even though it is in a franchise is like all the movies pretty fully stand-alone. None of the movies require any understanding of the alien/predator universe. Unlike say... harry potter were you are like WTF? every 10 minutes due to some previous movie reference. I can't even think of any crossover references that matter all crazy minor in the movies and I've watched all (the good ones... aka 3 maybe 4) multiple times. Plus this is actually the "First" true Alien Movie timeline wise. Set before the "first" movie. Also directed by Ridley Scott so the likelyhood of it being good is high. If you wanted to watch them in (chronological) order you'd start with Prometheus and then this movie. In case you're unaware the alien franchise started with something that had not really been done before, that is a reasonably large budget, high quality "artsy" horror movie. Unfortunately after the second film they had mediocre directors directors until the restart recently.
  2. hah. Its just more of a lets call it , yet another blow to my self esteem (i could do with about 200 less of them lol) that this is even an issue. For various reasons some real, some bullshit health related / exaggerated.
  3. jeeeezus. *fear*
  4. The Gathering 55 at The Red Apple Restaurant & Inn 32711 Michigan Ave, Wayne, MI 48184 <--- Directions via Google 7:30 Thursday, March 30th. Really Big Sign Hard to miss. A casual dinner time gathering in a "Denny's like" environment. Club Attire Encouraged but not Required GLBT, Fashion Models, Cosplayers Goths, DGNers, Ex DGNers Re-Goths, Goths for a day, Horror Movie and Sci Fi (especially SW, ST, BSG and GoT ofc fans.) MTG players. Ingressers. The spiritually inclined, Science & History buffs. General weirdos. Totally normal open minded people. All welcome. Like all DGN events this is NOT particularly kid friendly*. Hope to see you there! Please invite any and all you think might be REMOTELY interested! Bring a good attitude! Please help Invite! If you want a card ask! If you really want one ask here in this topic. *like DGN itself , this is not "kid friendly". You can bring them but No F-Bombs will be held back. No sexual innuendos (or straight up sex talk) will be spared. If you can't get a sitter and your kids are not SUPER well behaved leave them in a kennel at home with food & water. This is NOT the place to post about how you're going somewhere else , or doing something else or intentionally not coming or some other BS. Thanks. That being said, Please help us get the word out! Looking forward to seeing you! If you would like one of our weekly "The Gathering" cards (Some Examples). Ask in person at The Red Apple <--- key step. *If you really want to make sure you get one. Just ask here (not in the FB page, that will be futile) and make sure you show up before me. Some time after I walk in the door and whoever has asked for a card (here) has priority. ** Cards Fine Print **If for some reason there are not enough cards to go around (There are typically only 7) 1. Ask at the gathering for a card (first come first serve, with the below exceptions) 2. If your name is not in this topic I'll hold off until someone who does have their name IS in this topic asks for a card. 3. Asking in this topic means you have priority over someone who has not, everyone that asks here (should) get one before someone who has not. 4. I'll hold one for Permanent Benefactors until its clear the aren't coming if they've asked here. (If you are unsure what this is don't worry about it or have a look here) 5. If you've asked here , just ask at the gathering and you should get a card with no problem. 6. The order in which you ask here is vaguely "sooner you ask the higher priority" but is very hard to keep track of. If you wait until less than 24 hours before the event you risk not getting a card. I make one for everyone that asks here. +2 extra typically but not always the extras vary. No one owns (except Permanent Benefactors) a particular card. Hopefully if you slacked off or there is a screw up you can just trade for a particular card if you end up not getting it the one you wanted.' Corporate summary: Take the whole 2 minutes and ask. If it's not worth two minutes, you don't really want one. Hopefully none of the above will be nessisary as everyone that wants a card IS GOING TO SAY THEY WANT A CARD HERE RIGHT? lol Hopefully none of the above will be super necessary and there will never be any drama over the theoretically "for fun" cards. (there never has been) But please request a card HERE if you want one.
  5. Just meaning I have so little income I have to juggle between gas or food. If that bill would have passed I would have to juggle between ... nothing. I'd be negative 400 dollars a month (out of 1100). Due to the cascade effect of losing medicaid and then (instantly adds 200 to my bills) and then other rollover due to this would be another 200 minimum for a decent medigap coverage (which you don't need if you have medicaide) If I can even make that work, it might be even more. Its confusing. I wonder how anyone that isn't a nerd like me figures this shit out. I got rid of my good , now impossible to get health coverage due to qualifying for medicaide (which I wouldn't qualify under this BS bill) there is no plan as good as the one I had it was a "legacy" plan that no longer exists for new applicants.
  6. Trump is so fulla shit i start chuckling sometimes. His talk about this bill not passing and all the lie after lie he spewed out was funny if it was so scary due to many people actually believing it. "Obamacare is going to implode" STFU. The only reason that would happen is if your TOTAL SHIT appointees destroy the health care budget (which is a stated goal, take from the health department and give to the military straight up), THEY will destroy the health care system. Funny how he blamed the democrats. Sorry cheeto face, its your fail. It was pulled so the embarassment wouldn't be so utterly total when we see how piss poor your control of your party actually is. Hes so damn transparent its pathetic. The republicans don't need a single democratic vote to pass their shit. This was just such a rip off of the american people that some republicans that have a conscience wouldn't vote for it and others that are controlled by Bob Mercer or the Koch brothers didn't want it becasue its a chance to do a HISTORIC rip off of the american people , and it didn't go far enough so they want another go at it later.
  7. This is a opinion even I had for a long time. But what's really going on is....Its not the government per se. Its particular jackasses (and unelected billionaire puppet masters who hold the real power) in the government. The news has us all thinking everyone in the government is corrupt which isn't true. Its just what sells what used to be called newspapers so it "feels" like that is all there is in government. Some people in government actually try to do a good job for "the welfare of the american people". The rich WANT is to assume the government is worthless , so they can privatize everything (aka take from the taxpayer (that's us) and give to the rich... and nothing really trickles down. Money gets handed out to the top and stays at the top. Stab the next person that says trickle down economics works in the face. That was a concept created specifically to benefit the rich and brainwash the poor and middle class. The current administration isn't even Republican. Its some new kind of money is the only thing that matters party. Republicans true, traditionally are more about money than democrats , but they still have many perfectly well meaning people. This Trump administration is just 100% dismantle the government and give it to the rich. That's the stated goal of Bannon (chief strategist for the country, also known as "president bannon"). Although he uses an almost meaningless sounding term to describe it "Dismantle the Administrative State". Which is why they have put in all cabinent positions people who hate the core mission of the agency they are supposed to represent. Its gross. Head of the EPA doesn't belive in global warming and is trying to "Reduce burden on business" aka... not do his job. All of them are like that except the military people, which they need good guys there so they can keep funnelling pointless money into the military industrial conjob.
  8. Monday will probably be too late or really really close. Even if I buy them with my amazon prime 2 day shipping. Might work out. I found a cheaper price on almost the exact same cards (they are just white &nbsp;(Avery 88220) instead of ivory the way the ones we have been using all along. Debating just buying them with money I don't have. Told myself I wasn't going to do that anymore but seems lame to skip a week of cards for some reason. Back when we had extra money I tried to find a way to buy them in bulk for cheaper but no such thing exists as far as I can tell.
  9. Got bitched at by mom for "not helping" (yeah right) her with something I didn't even know was a problem, then went and got an oil change , YAY! Finally. Then came to this thread and got mildly depressed that its NOT UPDATED by anyone.
  10. As of this moment there won't be any cards next week , the week after should be ok (I think) (see a few posts up as to why).
  11. Was enjoyable glad I got to see everyone. Really glad to have you guys in my life. Hopefully @Trene4000 doesn't become addicted to the collectable animal miniatures I showed her. heh
  12. I actually was sitting there with this weird feeling like "damn something's not right with this place...." THERE IS NO MOE!
  13. Sorry to hear. Sucks. :(
  14. I just finally got the headache from hell of SSD medicare and at long last JUST qualified for and got me out of the -negative 400 a month to just have to debate between food or gas range. If the bill passes , poof...I'm fucked. Bye bye medicade. According to our Governor Rick Snyder (a republican who is against the bill) I will no longer qualify for medicade (because I make too much since I actually worked for a living and my disability pay which is shit, is not shitty enough for the new bill. (You get different disability pay based on how much you worked) I spent months restructuring all these related things and getting rid of some things I can't get back because medicade covers them. A lowball guess is I'll effectively lose 30% of my already can't really afford gas income. That was put out by the UAW but will work for anyone. You just put in your zip code and it connects you to your particular House Representative. I got a text message from the AFL-CIO thankging me for opposing the bill. Sad part was John Conyers inbox was full.
