Unpronounceable: I think this might be the game that automatically bumps down difficulty mid song if you aren't doing well in game
chickenace11: I like that the game shows the notes coming up through the scrolling item
BrowneePoints: I avoid reddit
Unpronounceable: That might be the weird note flying thing that happened when Heather was playing
Wolfstrike_NL: What is this tweeter you are talking about :) ?
theAngelsWeep: I still can't figure out what the percentages are...
kusinohki: "Lee and Leifield measurements..."
Molladia: I used to be Reddit and discord exclusive, but since following the LRR crew, now I read more twitter than the others.
the_elkae: Oh my. What is this that's on the screen :O
RaklarLS: pure speculation, but the percentages seem to be the offset, like + being pressed too soon and - being too late. not sure what they're relative to, though.
theAngelsWeep: But there were times that good seemed to be at zero percent and perfect at like >20
the_elkae: Why am I seeing something called Le Perv there on the menu screen??

LRRbot: Quote #5008: "Welcome to Heather's House of Lies" —Heather [2018-05-23]
RealGamerCow: To be fair, most Jimmy Buffet songs are not great and sound the same.
BusTed: benginChaos
RealGamerCow: They're just vehicles to get day drunk on a beach with sugary drinks
niccus: it's a yurt, really
Juliamon: Heather built it, Ian got trapped in it
BlindProphet32: Is the house of lies the Hotel California?
dividesBy0: The sublet of lies?
e_bloc: this is why you don't enter someone else's house of lies
IbunWest: He already has several mortgage payments on the house of lies.
chickenace11: Ian is now the CEO of Lieing house inc
Simonark: The guy who sang The Purple People Eater also did the Wilhelm Scream
RvLeshrac: You also have to watch out for the purple-shirted eye-stabber.
NarwhalsInATrenchcoat: it's really good
SquareDotCube: A man so bothered by the biting gnats in his camp, which was in a marsh, he cut out his own eye
Probevoyages: The necessity of clarifying you're referring to one of the *purple* peoplec eaters is also potentially worrying.
Lithobraker: I only know of the flying purple people eater thanks to Jenny Nicholson
SquareDotCube: because who would want to attack an enemy camp in a marsh
RvLeshrac: Remember when Frank Herbert died and his son took over and we were hopeful that his son would be like Christopher Tolkien and continue his legacy? Man what a letdown.
niccus: so is flying purple describing the people or the eater
DavidForGiants: New one is-semi-completelhy different - plot wise.
RealGamerCow: Apparently Max Landis' plan for the third season was *horrible*
BrowneePoints: @LoadingReadyRun I mean, at least the new Dune is directed by the same guy who did Blade Runner 2049
Probevoyages: Are there say, maroon people eaters? Perhaps blue people eaters? Does the color have to be alliterative with what the creature eats?
RvLeshrac: All five books in the Hitchhiker Trilogy.
RvLeshrac: OH
niccus: eoin colfer
RvLeshrac: All the Dune novels?
Sarah_Serinde: Eoin Colfer yeah
IsaTheEngie: Eoin Colfer
Sarah_Serinde: He wrote Artemis Fowl
BrowneePoints: It's Ian yea
e_bloc: it's pronounced ian horner
chickenace11: Artimis fowl i liked that book series
niccus: he colfs where ian horns
Lithobraker: @Probevoyages I think maroon people eaters are messy purple people eaters after a meal.
MAPBoardgames: Douglass Adams, like Frank Herbert has a surprisingly prolific postmortem career.
Sarah_Serinde: I read it a while back but I don't actually remember anything about it :P
BrowneePoints: They get better. Artemis Fowl in the first book is a BIT insufferable
Sarah_Serinde: I really liked Artemis Fowl as a kid, haven't looked at it in ages
RvLeshrac: Wait, there's a SIXTH book? There's no reason to write more Guide stories after the fifth.
Unpronounceable: Today's word of the day (according to me) is Tsundoku: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tsundoku
Clairevoyant_: I own the entire series, but I haven't read them since middle school.
Juliamon: RvLeshrac You're forgetting the "money" reason
SniperPumpkin: the AF books are fine, clearly targeted at middle grade, so it's a bit...simple? as an adult
Probevoyages: I read that series a long time ago wow
IsaTheEngie: The Artemis Fowl books started rather strong and got a little weird as they progressed
Probevoyages: @Lithobraker Making the distinction all the more important!
RvLeshrac: Juliamon: I'm pretty sure it doesn't need any more novels to deal with that.
BrowneePoints: I see what you did there Ian
Sarah_Serinde: Hatsune Miku sure is prolific huh
RvLeshrac: There's so much Guide merchandise.
Unpronounceable: Hatsune Miku is incredible
IsaTheEngie: Speaking of Miku, she's responsible for the TV version of Dirk Gently's
RvLeshrac: And also so many re-releases.
lucha_libro: I've actually been getting rid ofallot of my physical paperbooks that Ive had since highschool and college and just using my tablet for reading
lucha_libro: well paperbacks
Ignatiuspants: Oh man, a version narrated by Hatsune Miku, that'd be something
Lithobraker: So it's like in class when your teacher has everyone read a paragraph
RealGamerCow: I've been reading the new Neal Stephenson book. It's profoundly weird.
MAPBoardgames: I've heard some Librovox public domain audiobooks. Often each chapter is a different narrator.
RvLeshrac: Much like there are only five Hitchhiker's Guide novels, there are only six Dune novels, and you should stop there OR ELSE.
lucha_libro: I got the hardback second volume of the annotated lovecraft by leslie klinger for Christmas, so that's been my reading material for the moment.

Driosenth: 1.33x speed audio is my jam
VirtualSound: 🖖🏼🛸🖖🏼
BusTed: I believe PocketCasts on Android has a similar function.
RvLeshrac: It does.
RvLeshrac: PocketCasts is, hands-down, the greatest podcast listening app.
Driosenth: no tonal change but removes empty spaces
Lithobraker: I have lectures where if you did that it would be 1.5 speed
BlindProphet32: @RvLeshrac The expanded dune books don't retroactively ruin the genius of Frank
frostownik: 1.1x and remove silence in Podcast Addict saved me several days already
Hangedman: I kind of like having the pauses as part of cadence, but it definitely varies
sag3error: The Ender quartet was quite enjoyable back when I read them a couple decades ago. Shame about the author's personal beliefs.
Izandai: @Hangedman Same.
Acara21: this game seems evil!
Sarah_Serinde: I had more trouble with this level than any of the others
BrowneePoints: The Ender's Shadow series is better than the base books imo
cadesguy: the fast reload is pretty important in games like this
Unpronounceable: I'd describe it (from just watching) as unforgiving, but not punishing
8_Escape: Is that guy wearing a mask?
RvLeshrac: I remember a forum where someone was reading through all of OSC's novels and citing the worst parts, which is basically just transcribing his novels.
RaklarLS: this is probably the worst level. the odd meter one is bad too
8_Escape: And how is he hitting the ball?
BrowneePoints: I'm also hoping the Wheel of Time show is better than the books, cuz that 's one of the few novels I've ever put down without finishing
Sarah_Serinde: What helped me on this one was watching which of the 3 squares lit up, instead of relying on the path of the ball (this was the first time I even noticed they lit up)
BrowneePoints: It's Unforgiving, not Unfair
MAPBoardgames: XCOM on the otherhand...
8_Escape: Honestly This scenery scares me.
BrowneePoints: They also give you half a beat to see the ball before it lands
RaklarLS: kind of? they want you to be a metronome for a very long time in a few songs, it becomes a bit unfair in a few tracks
RaklarLS: but mostly it's just unforgiving
oddmeg: hi all, hope you are having a happy stream / day :)
Izandai: @MAPBoardgames XCOM is entirely fair. If it says you have a 90% chance to hit a shot, you have a 90% chance to hit that shot. Unlike many other games, where 90% might equal something like 99%.
BrowneePoints: @Izandai ...ummmmmmmm
Izandai: ?
sag3error: I also enjoyed the Shadow Saga @browneepoints but I think Jane is my favorite character
StephenJM81: this music is making me think of With or Without You...
BrowneePoints: @Izandai XCOM has some of the most notoriously BS rng in gaming
Izandai: I'm pretty sure it doesn't.
DarkMorford: Honestly, this level is more annoying me than anything else. I don't know if it's just my setup, but pretty much all I can hear of the music is an endless loop of bass eighth-notes. And it's really starting to grate on me.
Izandai: The RNG in XCOM is notorious specifically because it IS fair, not because it isn't. People are used to games that cheat in favor of the player.
MAPBoardgames: I would've preferred it if XCOM gave vague shot odds.
sag3error: XCOMs psuedo random numbers skew against the player heavily
TheMerricat: So not to get too far into the whole "does XCOM lie to you" arguement, - https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1AT7pgGMt4yZroMAcJglSJ3CV--DCkhLvPIYkGVZjKKA/edit#gid=0 someone actually did the math and in the long run the percents seem to be accurate.
oddmeg: 3 body problem was super moving for me, more so than i normally find scifi
e_bloc: Corgo100 Corgo100 I am enjoying book corner with Ian Horner
Izandai: @TheMerricat Much obliged.
TheMerricat: It's just that the BS shots are more memeriable.
Juliamon: Worth noting: even XCOM will fake the percentages on certain difficulties.
RealGamerCow: Wasn't Foundation by Asimov?
Izandai: @MAPBoardgames That would be interesting. I think the lack of hard numbers would frustrate me, but I can see why others would find them less frustrating.
BrowneePoints: Hey Ian, are you excited or apprehensive for Villaneuve's Dune movie?
oddmeg: related to that: i cant remember the name, but there is a great book on the economics of sand, including sand theft
e_bloc: can't wait for the third book, Salted Cod
Izandai: @TheMerricat Also you take many more 90% shots than you do 10% shots, so you have many more opportunities to miss a 90%er than you do to hit a 10%er.
oddmeg: history of concrete is also super interesting
RvLeshrac: The problem with XCom is that people do analyses, but real-world playthroughs have had things like misses on 100% hit chances.
Juliamon: The XCOM "unfair" issue is a result of people not really understanding percentages.
Izandai: ^
Izandai: People are bad at statistics.
MAPBoardgames: XCOM: Confirmation Bias, the game.
RvLeshrac: A 100% chance only has to miss once, ever, for people to rightfully assume that the chances are BS.
BrowneePoints: Also, glad you enjoyed that Melodicka Bros cover of Chop Suey!
Izandai: I've never heard of a 100% shot missing.
oddmeg: yeah people think sand imports are from dredging but often its just stolen from other beaches :D
RaklarLS: i wish they got Magma back for the soundtrack of the new Dune
oddmeg: yeah beaches can suck, same as lawns, they are weird banal peices of landscaping that are realy profoundly synthetic and kinda harmfull
TheMerricat: https://sinepost.wordpress.com/2012/11/11/is-xcom-truly-random/ for more XCOM RNG discussion. if folk want it, but really. The folks in the "our brains can't handle statistics instinctually" are right.
Juliamon: People see 95% and think "no way I could miss" but if you reworded it as "1 in 20 shots will miss" they're more receptive.
Izandai: And even I saw one miss, I would assume it was a bug (maybe a rounding error) before I assumed that every percentage the game ever gave me was "bullshit".
ritchards: why don't we see the pong ball on the other side of the table?
Izandai: @ritchards A quirk of this level.
TheMerricat: @ritchards don't know the gamelore reason but to make it harder
ritchards: cheers
oddmeg: is our opponant masked, or is that their face?
ArcOfTheConclave: @oddmeg Yes
oddmeg: oh did you finally wrap it up?
Acara21: you playing shenmue 3 is fantastic sculpting background watching
oyleslyck: The choke...
RvLeshrac: Izandai: (There are other 100% misses, that's just one)
Sarah_Serinde: tfw you finally get to a new section of the music and immediately die
wildpeaks: it might be easier without the headphones, just focusing on the graphics
ritchards: has there been any announcement of the next PiF or Long Game, btw?
oyleslyck: you get into your own head - it's like don't think about a purple elephant
Juliamon: ritchards Not yet
Izandai: @RvLeshrac Huh. Hell of a thing, that. But yeah, I'm more inclined to call that a bug than evidence that none of the percentages the game gives you are accurate.
Sarah_Serinde: Yeah I have a hard time reading that bar at the top while trying to play
Oghara: @LoadingReadyRun Heather just finished your anime roundup, loved it because your guys taste is so different from mine. Thanks for your content
e_bloc: the anime roundup was a lot of fun
oddmeg: yeah i love the anime rounduos, iv seen so many new things i super liked cause of ani ani and y'alls reccomendations
Sarah_Serinde: Hangouts are fun
TheMerricat: I like those the best too Heather. :-) I'd love for a weekly chillpoint from you all, not even a video game specific one.
e_bloc: I don't even watch anime but i enjoy the descriptions of them
Izandai: Honestly it was a little like that. katesLol
Acara21: Heather do you have a favorite bad movie to watch?
oddmeg: tinker tailor is such a good chill steam, i love having it on in the background while im doing lecture prep
TehAmelie: yesterday Kate Stark streamed like 9 hours of McMansion roasts. i think live streaming had only just begun to explore its possibilities
Oghara: I enjoyed it because it was a very different perspective to mine @e_bloc I enjoy getting to know others peoples opinions
TehAmelie: *has
oddmeg: oh dang is there a vod of that? i gotta check that out
Izandai: There is.
Oghara: my fav bad movie is pply Dude, Where's My Car?
Oghara: guess that shows my age lul
Juliamon: Mine is Blades of Glory
TheMerricat: I'd agree @TehAmelie though there are a lot of 'just chatting' twitchers out there, a lot of them are just ... not really fun to watch...
oddmeg: my problem is i love having yalls streams on in the background, but when its live i get stuck chatting and never get anything done :D
japolai: watch the robin hood movie from 2019, it is awful, they do desert storm but with bows and arrows
TehAmelie: yeah i think LRR has ot lead the way
BrowneePoints: isn't Once Upon a Time the one where Mulan is 1. Badass and 2. Gay?
TheMerricat: Supernatural?
TehAmelie: my favorite bad movie is Armageddon
oddmeg: what is it?
RaklarLS: the what now?
MAPBoardgames: Mine is Wanted
Izandai: I'm not sure I have any bad movies I like. I don't really watch a lot of movies in general.
oyleslyck: oh Hackers is my fave bad movie
TehAmelie: i think Wanted is my favorite bad comic book
Izandai: @MAPBoardgames Oh, yeah, Wanted is great.
TehAmelie: (it's very different from the movie)
BusTed: haha.
wildpeaks: :D
Acara21: Once Upon a Time is such fantastic fun, it should be terrible but it's very enjoyable
BrowneePoints: Yea...they jump into a split timeline out of nowhere and it's a LITTLE jarring
RaklarLS: oh, Sliders
sir_jack_DB: Turn On, Brain Off is sometimes what I need
Izandai: katesLol
PMAvers: But what if there was a Buffy/Slayers cross-over?
TheMerricat: Eventually they'll just smash the whole DC universe into one universe.
Oghara: I re-watched slayers over xmas ^.^
cuzuki: Slayers is what got me into anime and will always have a special place in my heart
Izandai: oof
wildpeaks: ouch
Simonark: They don't!
BusTed: Don't forget Legends of Tomorrow.
kusinohki: writers do things based on broadcast tv schedule
Oghara: @cuzuki ye similar to me, tbh i watched it mostly out of nostalgia a lot of it didnt age very well
oyleslyck: writers don't write for netflix schedule, they write for CW schedule
RaklarLS: so the cross-over events are canon in all series? that's horrible
Izandai: @RaklarLS That's how crossovers have always worked in superhero comics.
BlindProphet32: The cross-over events are all canon...and also mostly don't matter
TheMerricat: It works if you watch it 'live' Ian, but people buying physical sets of their favorite shows are going to be pissed eventually.
RaklarLS: @Izandai it doesn't make it good for tv shows!
BlindProphet32: They in fact make fun of them too
BrowneePoints: Also
BlindProphet32: The Harley Quinn animated series is amazing
BrowneePoints: DC Universe gave us a good Swamp Thing show and cancelled it before the first season ended
zeac79: you just need friends one for each sub and watch together aka share logins
oyleslyck: yes... "subscribe" to other streamer services R)
Izandai: @RaklarLS Well, like Heather said, it's probably fine if you're watching all three as they come out on TV. It's the fact that the shows are desynced on streaming platforms that makes it a headache.
TheMerricat: @LoadingReadyRun what about CW? can you get it streaming in Canada?
BrowneePoints: Isn't there a Buffy graphic novel?
cuzuki: yup
Acara21: Cat World!
Izandai: Yes. The only DC universe. The only one that exists.
IsaTheEngie: wI don't think it stands for anything
kusinohki: I watch these shows by getting the dvds from the library. I like how they did the first crossover. they put both eps on both dvd sets.
dividesBy0: Or add a new character to Slayers named Buffy who is a vampie - Buffy the Slayers Vampire.
doubleohsnake: Dark Horse has been putting out Buffy comics since the show ended.
nebman227: i believe that cw stands for nothing
oyleslyck: CBS/Warner
SniperPumpkin: it stands for nothing, it was formed as the merger of UPN and Warner something something
nebman227: like literally nothing
Juliamon: It's just "The CW" to everyone
TheMerricat: All I know is it's called CW, it's the broadcasting network that the DC properties are on.
oyleslyck: CW = CBS/Warner
RaklarLS: @Izandai sure, but it's bold to assume that everyone wants to watch all 3 series though. a lot people don't have time for that, or the superhero in question doesn't interest them
BrowneePoints: AAAH
Unpronounceable: Content World
oddmeg: it used to be WB, then it was CW, i think its Comcast/Warner?
BrowneePoints: Cbs/Warner
Ignatiuspants: "content warning", I want to say
IsaTheEngie: It's called CW because it's a joint operation of CBS and Warner
Izandai: CW literally just references CBS and Warder Bros
TehAmelie: ah, the DC Comics tradition of abbreviations
BrowneePoints: Detective Comics!
BusTed: Hahaha.
TheMerricat: CBS and Warner Bros. Official website. http://www.cwtv.com. The CW Television Network (The CW) is a television network in the United States launched at the beginning of the 2006–2007 television season.
nebman227: wikipedia says: The network's name is an abbreviation derived from the first letters of the names of its two parent corporations (CBS and Warner Bros.).
IsThis___Art: DUNKIN CRONUTS
cuttlefishman: Ian, have you had timbits cereal uyet
sir_jack_DB: Crunkin' Donuts
MAPBoardgames: Detective Comics Comics?
cuttlefishman: need your thoughts
BusTed: I appreciate Dunkin Cronuts.
Juliamon: That reminds me, the local diner is advertising a "Cronut French Toast" monthly special
oddmeg: i thought CBS was canadian?
orbitaltuna: Cronuts? Chronuts? Crownuts?
Oghara: its 2am gonna leave you, take care!
Sarah_Serinde: oddmeg You might be thinking of the CBC
Juliamon: I can't decide if that's something I'm up for trying or if it's Too Much
oyleslyck: CBS is not canadian
SniperPumpkin: oddmeg CBS is the Columbia Broadcasting Corporation
TheMerricat: That's about the only reason I haven't fled US for Canada after Road Quest, I still want my US access...
oddmeg: @Sarah_Serinde i think i am :D i knew they have a state broadcaster but i forgot the exact letters :D
BrowneePoints: Yea, it's Crisis
oyleslyck: CTV has canada broadcast rights for CW stuff
BrowneePoints: Season 2 was Flashpoint
Xafty: im just followoing a website that tells me the release order
RaklarLS: is the cronut just a rounded croissant, or it it sugary too?
Xafty: and therfor the watch order
Izandai: katesLol
Juliamon: RaklarLS it's more like a donut than a croissant.
kusinohki: bat woman is a thing
Simonark: Batwoman is just a different person.
oyleslyck: Supergirl is diff because she got pants this season
BrowneePoints: Batwoman is Bruce's Cousin
Izandai: Batwoman has been a thing for decades.
oddmeg: thats a different show, she has her own show
BlindProphet32: It is Batwoman...and yes she's pretty niffty
oddmeg: iv not seen any of the batwoman show but i hope its good
TheMerricat: HahaNutcracker
wildpeaks: talking of bats, Gotham was pretty sweet
RaklarLS: oh, it's a round mille feuille, i get it now.
oddmeg: oh now i miss spaceghost coast to coast
BlindProphet32: Harley quinn animated is <3
Simonark: After Doom Patrol, they have a second good show?
oyleslyck: in the Batwoman series, Kevin Conroy is Bruce Wayne
BrowneePoints: After Rebirth Kate Kane(Batwoman) is Bruce Wayne's Cousin
TheMerricat: Greetings Mobster, I am THE BATMAN. I use he/him. Remember that! *POW*

Xafty: its actually not true at all
Acara21: please rinse your recyclables! the food grease will gum up the machines!
Xafty: dirty recyclable items tend to get thrown away
niccus: especially with plastics, they need to be so well-sorted and clean to be recycled at all
BrowneePoints: Also, I'd love to see Swamp Thing mess up Poison Ivy. She utilizes The Green, Swamp Thing commands The G reent
Xafty: as its not worth the time/cost to clean them at the plant
SniperPumpkin: and it uses way less water to wash food residue off when it's fresh than after it's dried
BrowneePoints: Also, isn't Star Girl getting a series?
oddmeg: dc does some interesting stuff from time to time, i used to be super into various vertigo things
oyleslyck: the harley quinn animated series is p. good.
BlindProphet32: Kite Man... Hell Yeah
BrowneePoints: Agree, the Harley Quinn series is really good
MAPBoardgames: Those little facts stick in people's minds. This is why it's super-important to get your information correct when you are making public consupmtion media (Video Games, Movies, TV, etc.)
oddmeg: most recent comics i enjoyed: DIE, the wicked and the divine and eternity girl
BrowneePoints: Harley is a Rated R character.
MAPBoardgames: See: Extra Credit's video on Propaganda Games
oddmeg: oh and FENCE! is good too :D its like a sports anime but a comic
BrowneePoints: Also King Shark is best character
Izandai: @BrowneePoints Tell that to Batman: The Animated Series.
MAPBoardgames: Kindergarten Cop?
kusinohki: animated =/= 'cartoon' ... at least it shouldn't imo...
oddmeg: is there anything like genuinly g rated with deadpool?
Izandai: ^
Ignatiuspants: I'm pretty sure Deadpool has showed up in some kids cartoons before
BrowneePoints: @oddmeg yea, he was in a g rated spidey cartoon
IsThis___Art: IAN
erased_citizen: Ian, if you get a chance to watch 1917 you should try to go see it. I think you would enjoy it
Izandai: Also far better ways to get information from people than torture of any kind.
PMAvers: Like, say, we have a stream all about that. It's called Watch & Play.
oddmeg: @BrowneePoints huh wow
erased_citizen: It is a fantastic film
angryoptimist: Like tilting every picture hung on the wall just a *little*.
IsThis___Art: actually we do, its called IRL
Unpronounceable: I think one of my favourite examples of making characters more appropriate for younger audiences is the Sam and Max cartoon
kusinohki: deadpool showed up in ultimate spiderman. I think he even commented on them using *bleeps* (but maybe that was HISHE?)
oddmeg: what is that? speaker for the dead?
Ballistic_Meatball: Speaker for the dead from that enders game?
Ballistic_Meatball: game serrries*
itomeshi: Ian, have you ever considered a career track OTHER than supervillain?
jubale1: man this is hi-fi compared to the original Pong
IsThis___Art: but is she a polymorph?
BrowneePoints: Okay, now I want to read a Sci-Fi novel written by a Neural Network and read by a Vocaloid Ian
oddmeg: im so glad miku wrote so many good things so that people with problematic views didnt get given large platforms and interfear with the enjoyment of their works
angryoptimist: Haven't you heard? I'm Hatsune Miku-kun.
oddmeg: i enjoyed that mining game she made
IsThis___Art: @oddmeg oooooh I get it now
BrowneePoints: Hatsune Miku Desu Ga?
Izandai: I'm more concerned with its flagrant defiance of the laws of physics.
kusinohki: and rocking back and forth like a metronome
jubale1: i'm concerned about the lack of bonus ticks.
BrowneePoints: Umbrella Steve
IsThis___Art: I'm so glad Hatsune Miku wrote those funny jokes from comedians I can't support
TehAmelie: i'm concerned about how you're even supposed to score when the ball goes under their side of the table
angryoptimist: Tired: Vocaloid Ian; Wired: Vocaloid Ian doing a Carl Sagan impression.
jubale1: it's supposed to be ta-tick ta-tick ta-tick.
itomeshi: 1) At this rate, you may never leave. 2) You need the umbrella's consent to take it.
BrowneePoints: Gotta be careful talking to umbrellas. They'll give you an unending torrent of emotions

MAPBoardgames: Last time I spoke to an umbrella, I got a lot of Flap.
angryoptimist: Umbrella demons? This a Touhou joke?
dividesBy0: Umbrella language is a superset of all languages - it is an umbrella language after all
Izandai: Wow. That was a long walk, Ian. I hope you're proud.
BusTed: That was a walk.
BrowneePoints: Speaking of Umbrella Academy, I'm excited for season 2
itomeshi: Ian... Ian went there. OK.
IsThis___Art: @kusinohki yes, that's my favorite Miku joke
oddmeg: there is gonna be a season 2?!?
orangey44: umbrellas actually speak most languages. they really cover a lot
BrowneePoints: @oddmeg it got renewed like 2 days after release
oddmeg: o cool
BrowneePoints: Also if y'all DIDN'T know, Gerard Way from My Chemical Romance wrote the comic Umbrella Academy is based on, hence the Gerard Way song in the show!
Juliamon: Un-brellated
Izandai: "unrelated to umbrellas"
oddmeg: you can stand above my un-umbrella
jubale1: i take umbrage at that joke
BrowneePoints: @jubale1 umbrellage*
orbitaltuna: Bird illuminate confirmed
TehAmelie: imma need my dumbrella for these jokes
kusinohki: I've heard of 'fur babies' so "feather baby'?
BrowneePoints: I thought birds were Babus
angryoptimist: Is having a bird illegal in Canada? Are their Canadian bird-laws?
BrowneePoints: A tiny little birb babu
angryoptimist: *there
BusTed: But leave the present.
itomeshi: hahahahah
Agl0vale: "are you calling my baby ugly?"
Elevation_4000_FT: "invite them in" so like vampires?
Juliamon: The term "fur baby" always makes me uncomfortable but it's totally fair, our cat gets cranky if we don't tell her to go take her afternoon nap (and sometimes we need to pick her up and carry her over to her napping spot)
TheMerricat: TBAngel
orangey44: worth it

MAPBoardgames: With how much kids cost, it's no wonder people don't have kids until their 30s
oddmeg: oh good, thank goodness we wernt taking about some man-bird-preg stuff :D
kusinohki: do you get a discount on labor day?
Juliamon: In these trying times, sometimes you need an egg.
Elevation_4000_FT: I don't under stand the logic. Could Ian explain slower and more in depth?
Agl0vale: this took a weird turn
angryoptimist: I learned about the existence of oden from Yakuza.
oddmeg: im glad you get to have a happy food time
orangey44: is that like an inari with mochi instead of rice?

angryoptimist: Oh, I know what it is--that's why it terrifies me.
BusTed: It's true. You can't hear the color black.

angryoptimist: Not unless you're a synesthete, anyway.

BrowneePoints: "Whiskey is not meant to go in your eyes"

e_bloc: both?
Juliamon: (For !advice's reference)
angryoptimist: What if you're that gif of Gary Oldman with the faces for eyes?
coelopteryx: when they say "damn and blast your eyes" the part where you blast your eyes is with whisky. or whiskey. they're not picky
orangey44: im just here for the lies
BrowneePoints: @Juliamon Whiskey is the drink
TehAmelie: i think not even the Corinthian would put whiskey in his eyes
e_bloc: nothing worthwhile is easy
kat2kool: "have" to spout
RaklarLS: "Alcohol in general, is not meant to go in your eyes. Please don't do it, you'll just make your doctor sigh heavily in despair. Please"

RealGamerCow: I didn't because I had a launch NES.
BrowneePoints: @Juliamon and apparently Whiskey refers to American ones as well, so Whisky would be specifically Scottish
TheMerricat: To be honest, given I grew up on Atari 2600 games and the majority of them didn't have an ending, I never expected to 'reach' the castle.
TehAmelie: just don't call it scotch if you're in Scotland
Juliamon: BrowneePoints Which is why I asked which spelling.
Juliamon: I know those who are fond of such beverages get... annoyed when the wrong spelling is used

MAPBoardgames: Same goes for hiding closets
aWabbajack: ok looking at wiki @Juliamon Jack Daniel's is a brand of Tennessee whiskey and the top-selling American whiskey in the world
TehAmelie: the first time i encountered the term "physical education" was the PE teacher in Akira
Juliamon: Used "whiskey" for the advice.
kat2kool: rye whiskey is also spelled with an e
Juliamon: Around here they made a big deal about calling it PE instead of gym.
Juliamon: I don't know why.
aWabbajack: seems to be okay in both ways
BrowneePoints: I didn't have to run the mile until late high school! Yay childhood hip disease!
Sarah_Serinde: Here too
e_bloc: we use them interchangably
Juliamon: NOBODY ever called it gym here.
Saulens181: Ireland, everyone calls it PE
aWabbajack: There are two schools of thought on the issue. One is that the spelling difference is simply a matter of regional language convention for the spelling of a word, indicating that the spelling varies depending on the intended audience or the background or personal preferences of the writer
angryoptimist: They made you (tried to, at least) jump hurdles? That's kinda metal.
TehAmelie: "gymnasium" means "room for being naked in"
angryoptimist: Well, that's the Romans.
BrowneePoints: We had Social Studies in lower grades, and then Both History OR civics in high school in my region of the US @LoadingReadyRun
kat2kool: oh yeah, it was 'Literature Arts' for me until it became English in high school
Juliamon: Yeah, it's LA and Social Studies until you get to high school
Juliamon: Then they differentiate
SniperPumpkin: these terms are all present in the US as well, I remember having lots of Social Studies classes. The US system is extremely fragmented, so loads of terminology is used
BrowneePoints: Basically LA and Social Studies are broad study, and then in US High School they focus them into Govt/Civics/History etc
Juliamon: "English" and "Writing" from LA, and "Civics" and "History" from SS
IsThis___Art: American here - we had Social Studies in 5th grade, Civics in 8th grade, US History in 11th grade.
IsThis___Art: they were mostly the same thing
kat2kool: Interesting. I had the change in terminology but not the splitting into multiple classes (in Sask)
BrowneePoints: Just like we have "Science" class until high school and then MicroBio, Bio, Chem, O-Chem, etc
Juliamon: You had microbio and ochem? Wow
BrowneePoints: @Juliamon Eeeyup
kat2kool: That's more granularity than I'd expect in high school
BrowneePoints: @Juliamon we also had Zoology, Physics and Adv Physics(college credit)
SeraphimIronstream: I've always been bad at school, sadly. always envied those who could get good grades on test with virtually no studying
Juliamon: My high school went Physical Science (general), then Geology, Chem, and Physics
Ignatiuspants: I had an experience in high school a lot like that
BrowneePoints: @Juliamon Iowa has one of the highest rated education systems in the States for a reason XD
Agl0vale: and that's why I dislike it
Saulens181: something something schools are like prisons
Juliamon: I think we had bio in there somwhere
Ignatiuspants: I even failed some classes, even though I got almost 100% on every test I ever took
angryoptimist: I hate that this is accurate.
TheMerricat: Joke's on them, I played along till I graduated then made my own rules. :-P
storiers: And thanks to automation, no one will even need you to do that anymore

wildpeaks: yes this page, it used to show a calendar in your own timezone, it was convenient
Juliamon: It still should
Sarah_Serinde: ^
Sarah_Serinde: !schedule
LRRbot: Want to know what's coming up? Check out https://loadingreadyrun.com/live for an interactive schedule, or http://lrr.cc/2019schedule for a Google Calendar version.
PMAvers: It's in the info below the stream.
wildpeaks: I guess I'll send a screenshot on the discord ?
Sarah_Serinde: The live page shows things in my timezone, and I'm in a different one than LRR is
Sarah_Serinde: tilty.house
SniperPumpkin: wildpeaks please do
Sarah_Serinde: twitch.tv/lunarjade twitter.com/lunarjade
aerobeing: LUL
kat2kool: thanks for the stream!
Juliamon: If you're having issues, let a mod (or discord mod) know so we can pass the info along to Paul.
Ignatiuspants: Bye!
IsThis___Art: byeeeeeee
SoldieroFortune: !next
LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: Dice Friends (Dale returns to the GM chair to run the crew through an Over the Edge campaign, this is Spring Break.) at Mon 05:00 PM PST (22:53 from now).
Seagulyus: and now...to go watch GDQ vods
Ignatiuspants: I now have 1,890 channel points that don't seem to be useful for anything
Seagulyus: have a good night all
Juliamon: Ignatiuspants They're useful for emote modding!
Seagulyus: Ignatiuspants I have 65k and...yeah they kinda are. just ^ the emtoe modding
Juliamon: I know Sarah likes to mirror lrrFINE
aerobeing: I see a timezone selection button on the live schedule page.
Sarah_Serinde: I do love that one :D
Juliamon: and Spoopifer gets the 'hmm' a lot
Seagulyus: lrrSPOOP_TK
Sarah_Serinde: If you do have ideas for what else LRR could do with channel points you can let us know (no promises on anything, of course)
Ignatiuspants: lrrAWESOME_TK
Ignatiuspants: Hmm...
Seagulyus: Sarah_Serinde a couple other channels I watch have ones that cost 10k or 20k and say "literally nothing"
Juliamon: Yeah, it's not that they don't want to add more options, it's just that they don't really have the time to consider them
Seagulyus: Ignatiuspants you have that emote for 24 hours
PMAvers: 30k points: Shame Inferno James.
Seagulyus: the problem is, those are used as call outs. "thanks for literally nothing" sorta stuff
Ignatiuspants: It's not even permanent? I don't like this system
TehAmelie: lrrCIRCLE_TK every single modification of every emote would take 275 000 points. i'm 100 000 short
Juliamon: It's free, what more do you want?
kusinohki: some streams have options of "spend points, kill the streamer (in game of course)
Seagulyus: Ignatiuspants its not as bad as it seems. you can earn about 2k points a day so
Juliamon: Also yeah it's real easy to rack em up
Seagulyus: kusinohki yeah its like a pseudo crowd control
Juliamon: last I checked there was a race on Serge's channel to reach a high tier to rename the points
PMAvers: It's basically yet another "Oh Streamlabs does a thing? We do a thing now." Twitch move.
Seagulyus: oh and hjtenchi does his sub call outs during the stream, so he has one for 20k points I think it is where it forces him to do the sub call outs in different / weird voices :V
Ignatiuspants: Interesting..
Ignatiuspants: Well anyways... goodnight, everyone! lrrAWESOME_TK lrrAWESOME_TK lrrAWESOME_TK lrrAWESOME_TK lrrAWESOME_TK
Seagulyus: night Ignatiuspants
Juliamon: I at least prefer them to the new hype train things.
Seagulyus: lrrSPOOP_TK lrrSPOOP_TK lrrSPOOP_TK lrrSPOOP_TK
kusinohki: someone was playing dark souls and asking chat for suggestion on what to use points for (in general/ all games not just DS). I suggestion spend points to decide where the next level up xp point goes (can be used for skill trees too). other suggestions were choice of weapons/armor/costumes...
Seagulyus: Juliamon oh come one dont oyu love things that tell you to spend more money :V
Juliamon: Seagulyus Oh, especially when it introduces a huge obnoxious banner!
Seagulyus: yeah its "awesome" lol
Sarah_Serinde: I feel like a lot of the uses of channel points that I hear about people implementing work better when you only have one person or one main game on stream
Sarah_Serinde: A lot of options would work for one thing (like naming a character) but be irrelevant for most weekly streams
Sarah_Serinde: So you'd have to be changing them on the fly, or keep a lot that are only occasionally useful
Juliamon: In the end, a lot of it just amounts to "distracting viewers from actually watching the stream"
kusinohki: @Sarah_Serinde same. prolly just easier to come up with ideas when you have some constraints
Seagulyus: spend 10k points to backseat once. doesn't mean streamer has to listen to it, you just wont get timed out once :V
Sarah_Serinde: I saw Serge had one that was basically just 2020 points to say Happy New Year or something? Which is generic and cute
Sarah_Serinde: Though also time-limited, obviously
Juliamon: I like Serge's "premiere lands player" one, though it should probably be higher-priced
kusinohki: hmmm, for LRR, maybe they could try some stuff with Play It Forward. since one person is playing one game they could use ideas that only work for that specific show and change things when the next streamer/game starts. *shrug*
Sarah_Serinde: I mean, even then, they'd have to label them as "PIF only" or constantly disable and re-enable them though
Sarah_Serinde: Because otherwise they'd be around for every non-PIF stream but not be relevant
Sarah_Serinde: Which is just more work for the streamer or more confusion for the viewers
Juliamon: Yeah, LRR's uniqueness kind of works against them when it comes to things like this
Sarah_Serinde: I feel like trying to do something tailored to a specific stream or streamer would still be too much trouble, which significantly limits their options
kusinohki: I know nothing about the technical back end. Kind of in "brainstorming" mode. Just throw out ideas and hope even the bad ones spark a conversation that creates a good idea. *shrug*
Sarah_Serinde: Oh for sure, nothing wrong with that!
Juliamon: Even we aren't fully aware of what's possible and what's not with the backend.
kusinohki: who sets things up? the mods or the streamers?
Juliamon: The streamers
