If you need to B*tch about something other than originaltrilogy.com... This is the place

Thread title says it all. Have a complaint about your life? Having a rough day? Can’t find a pair of matching socks? (No, not that kind) Your cat being an arsehole? Stub your toe and accidentally say the vilest curse word known to man in front of your sweet old grandma? School problems? Tried out for the Philadelphia Eagles but didn’t make it? Well these and anything in between and beyond are all things you are welcome to bitch about in this thread.

The rules for this thread will be quite simple.

  1. (The most important rule) NO BITCHING ABOUT ORIGINALTRILOGY.COM. None of any sort. Think the mods aren’t impartial enough? People are being mean to you? Being falsely accused of saying things that you did in fact say? New rules aren’t being enforced hard enough or to your liking? Silverwook is being emotionally distant and won’t return your calls? (Is it something I did? I’ll change!) Guess who doesn’t care? The world. You have every other thread for that. Also no bitching that you think this OP is “mean” or “singles me out” because it doesnt. If you feel insulted about this post then change so that it doesn’t apply to you.
  2. No sighing. This rule is less strict and may be allowed in some cases. No, the first post after the OP isn’t one of those cases. Warbler not included.

Bitching may be serious or silly in nature, as can responses to other people’s bitching. Have serious problems? Talk about them. Just need to blow off steam about something silly that’s frustrating? Go for it. Want to offer another member real support? That’s all you, bud. Think someone else is overreacting and needs to gain perspective and understand life is good? (In other words, tell them to stop being a crybaby) Go get 'em tiger.
3. No disintegrations.

Off-topic banter and side conversations about throwaway details brought up in other peoples posts about bitching are allowed within reason.

Positive thoughts are allowed, so long as they relate to something else that was brought up in this thread.

I’ll start things off light. A friend made me watch The Breakfast Club for the first time last night. I’d like to b*tch about the fact that Bender is obviously in his mid to late 20s even though he’s supposed to be in high school and is nothing like the robot I know and love. Also that it is called The Breakfast Club when they never eat breakfast. How inappropriate. If anything it should have been called the “Lunch in the Library club”.

Also, kid brings a gun to school and all he gets is Saturday detention? Wtf.

Life in general is just hard sometimes. I’m sick, I feel like shit physically because of it, my parents are getting divorced (I understand why and even see that it’s better in the long run but it still sucks) the people I live with are assholes to me often, and act like I’m the rude one, and my job has been really awful busy and understaffed lately. Life can just be way too hard sometimes. The only good thing going on right now is I found this forum.

Starbucks. A ton of people have quit recently, and it’s been really busy for no apparent reason. I would take time off because I’m sick, but I don’t think the store could handle one less person right now

Ah. I know the feeling of retail frustrations. I am a manager at Wal-Mart (which is a much better career path than you might would think to anybody who feels like being judgmental about that. I’m 23 and have my own house and car and pay my own bills and have enough extra to have 8 guitars and a kick ass home theater setup with surround sound, a 125 inch screen and a 1080p projector)

Anyway I have much experience in retail and I can tell you the increase in business is likely due to many people receiving Starbucks gift cards for Christmas.

Ah that makes sense. Most of the new costumers have been the type who don’t know what to get.

PS your theater setup sounds awesome! 125 inch screen! I make do with a measly 32…

OP is better than even I anticipated.

On-topic, I ran out of iced tea and I’m at work while the rest of my cold delicious iced tea is in a refrigerator many miles from work.

That really sucks. I know the pain of being forcibly separated from delicious beverages. My condolences

They believe that the only refreshment worth consuming is that which must be struggled for.

Somewhat ironically I’ve used it to play super Nintendo games more than anything else. With a nice upscaling emulator with 2XSai enabled even it looks pretty sweet though. Can’t wait to pay ocarina of time with a nice texture pack.

Although I did watch my own custom Star Wars on it and it was fantastic.

I don’t have one. a real snes, while infinitely cool, would look like shit on a screen this big. Emulators that generate the graphics at 1080p look much better. Makes it look like a modern game that was meant to look retro. I mean they are still simple like on the snes but high quality and clear with no pixelation due to it getting at a high resolution and graphic filters. Same with n64 except n64 is even better due to high res texture packs. If I hooked the real thing into it it’d be pixelated and blurry.

Makes sense. What sort of emulator do you use? A Retropie? I have been thinking about buying one of those…

No it’s software. Snes9x for windows. I have a desktop pc for most of my entertainment purposes. It’s hooked into the projector (which is mounted into the ceiling) with a massive hdmi cable that’s ran behind the walls and through the ceiling out of site, and the audio ran digitally through a cable thats been the seam in the wall and floor into the receiver. The pc itself is tucked into a corner under the arm of a couch somewhat out of sight exposed just enough to insert blu rays into the drive. There’s a wireless mouse and keyboard just kinda sitting loose about the room (to serve in the absence of tv/bluray player remotes)

I play my games with a wireless ps3 controller connected to the computer with a usb dongle. The best part about that is my friends can bring their wireless controllers and easily connect them to the same dongle and we can play mario kart or any other multiplayer game I have an emulator for.

(By the way I get my roms legally by extracting them from Nintendo’s official virtual console versions and run them on the emulator)

That is awesome. You have just about the coolest setup I know of, and I am not above admitting that I am jealous

The whole thing cost less than 700 dollars man, if you save long enough (or use your income taxes for it) you can do it so long as you have a suitable room for it.

(I have a generic knockoff projector, but it’s still 1080P so it still looks stellar. The only way I can tell it’s a knockoff is that it literally just uses the android program for it’s menu app to the point that it even thinks it’s a phone if you hit the “about” button, LOL. Also there are some software quirks with it, but none of this affects viewing experience, I just set it to HDMI and let it go. The small bugs were well worth knocking the 300 dollars off the price of the name brand projectors like Epsilon, especially considering I find it hard to believe they could possibly look much better as I see no flaws with how this looks)
