I was browsing through the free Video On Demand shit I get with my Dish Network. Came across this one movie where the description sounded so outlandish that I figured it'd be worth a watch.

Juan of the Dead - https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1838571/

The entire movie is in spanish with english subtitles. So the basic idea is that a zombie apocolypse has hit the island of Cuba. To take advantage of the situation, Juan and his best friend start a zombie killing business.

Quote from: IMDB
A group of slackers face an army of zombies. The Cuban government and media claim the living dead are dissidents revolting against the government.

Usually I'd find it kinda hard to laugh at a movie where I have to read everything in subtitles. But god damn if this wasn't funny as hell in spite of that. It's not constantly start-to-finish hilarious. It's kind of a black comedy, and those movies never work like that anyway. But when it IS funny, it'll make you shit your pants laughing.

Seriously, if you have the opportunity to watch this, do so. If you have Dish, it should probably be available on demand at least until september.

Been a long time since the last time I saw this one.

I'm Gonna Git You Sucka

A Keenan Ivory Wayans parody of blaxploitation movies. My favorite scene from the movie (0:00 until 0:19):

I thought that Venom was pretty good. I also enjoyed Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. I know, I'm behind on the times. Christopher Robin was cute and I enjoyed it.

"The Ballad of Buster Scruggs"

https://www.netflix.com/title/80200267

Coen brothers movie. Watched it a couple nights ago (it's a collection of 6 short stories threaded by a common theme). I'm still processing it. Definitely worthwhile if you're familiar with (and enjoy) their oeuvre. (Blood Simple, Raising Arizona, Fargo, Burn After Reading, No Country for Old Men; etc.)

Hopefully everything is restarted now.

Some servers seem down currently Quadz, don't know if it's just a hiccup that'll fix itself, maintenance or what, but just in case, I mention it.

It's always been that if you mymap and disconnect before the map goes live, it's deleted from the queue.

Occasinally, someone will stick around until their map loads, and THEN disconnect, which is not appreciated. (Currently the only recourse is a full mute, as there's no provision for blocking just mymap usage.)

At least these days, the chosen map has to be roughly compatible with the number of players active on the server. (No more mapping sewer64 on a 3-player server; etc.)

Any way to prevent people from trolling with mymap? By that I mean they join the server, mymap a map, then immediately discconnect, forcing whoever's playing to play a map that nobody there necessarily wanted to play in the first place. Maybe have it check to see if the player who issued the command

OK, they made a routing change that appears to have resolved the issue I was seeing here.

Everyone else's pings back to normal?
