Alex Jones believes Bourdain was murdered as he was about to go 'Kanye West' & support Trump & murder was possibly by Hillary

"The media will spin it and say -- or try to ignore it probably and say, "Oh, Jones claims that [Bourdain] was murdered, oh look here's Jones again" ... This is how they operate, and it is just insane to be here at this moment."
~AJ

(actual fact: Bourdain was no Trump fan)

Project Zomboid is on sale for $9 or something at the moment (perhaps just until end of weekend)...

still in beta

seems super complicated, perhaps more than real life

ex) i just started a game & picked up everything in the bedroom & am overloaded within seconds (perhaps the crayons have no use, but maybe they will...)

the bed sheets can be ripped to use as bandages, or turned into a rope to climb down places, or used as curtains to stop zombies from looking in the windows...

clothing has different temp ratings, so have to keep track of that apparently... and boredom... & hunger/thirst/sleep...


anyhoo... watch a 'lets play' YouTube before investing in games as usual

A Brooklyn man accused of murdering a 66-year-old professor after a war of words over immigration is claiming self-defense, his attorney said Friday.

Through attorney Jay Schwitzman, Mirzo Atadzhanov, 28, of Brooklyn, entered a plea of not guilty for murder and burglary charges in the May 7 death of Jeremy Safran, a professor of psychology at The New School for Social Research as well as New York University’s Postdoctoral Program in Psychotherapy & Psychoanalysis.

According to court papers, Safran hired Atadzhanov to “work on his lights” in his home, even though Atadzhanov said he wasn’t an electrician.

The New York Daily News reported that Safran, a Canadian, wasn’t satisfied with Atadzhanov’s work, complaining: “This country cannot benefit from immigrants.”

Atadzhanov, who claimed to be from Tajikistan, said he was offended, and their fight escalated.

Atadzhanov said Safran tried to stab him with a combat knife, and he “followed his instincts,” according to court documents.

Prosecutors, however, claim that Safran was working out when Atadzhanov broke into his home and attacked him.

The Daily News reported that a neighbor saw Atadzhanov going in and out of the house, and called Safran’s wife to warn her.

Police had gone to the home to investigate a report of a burglary in progress when they found Safran in the basement with trauma to his head and body.

In his statement to police, Atadzhanov said that “the wife came down the stairs with a pit bull,” and scared him into a closet in the basement, where cops found him hiding inside with several tools, including a hammer.

"deep thoughts by Val Kilmer (about Bourdain)"

Always annoys me a little when people try to discourage suicide by saying that it's difficult for survivors. I think that's abusive logic: "Us not being burdened by your death is more important than your own autonomy over your own life." Fuck all of that. Be sad, sure, but don't hate on someone because that person made a "selfish" choice. Life can be pretty garbage, and heroin can be difficult to find ;)

"CNN Promises To Maintain Complete Lack Of Editorial Integrity Despite AT&T-Time Warner Merger"
http://www...ck-of-editorial-int-1826779595
[Onion: News in Brief]
"ATLANTA—In response to a U.S. district court judge overturning a Justice Department ruling that had previously blocked an $85 billion merger between telecom giant AT&T and its parent company, Time Warner, CNN reportedly promised Tuesday that the consolidation would have no effect on its ability to maintain a complete lack of editorial integrity. “We want to reassure our viewers that no matter what happens on the business side of things, we are committed to providing the same level of absolutely uninformed and unintelligent commentary that they’ve come to expect from us,” said CNN president Jeff Zucker, adding that he’d been in contact with executives at AT&T and received their assurance that they would not attempt to interfere with CNN’s misguided, histrionic coverage. “Our frequent failure to meet even the most basic of journalistic principles and mission to downplay important facts in favor of shock value and hysterics is what people have come to expect from us, and we won’t let you down. If anything, the merger should provide even more opportunities to secure ethically compromised interviewees and expand our spurious, tone-deaf coverage to new platforms.” Zucker also stated that he was hoping to leverage the multibillion-dollar merger into big raises for CNN’s vapid, inept on-air talent."

COIMBRA, Portugal—During the day, as visitors file through the University of Coimbra’s 300-year-old Joanina Library, the creatures remain hidden behind the grand, gilded bookcases.

At night, they come out to protect the books.

They are a group of perhaps a dozen resident bats. As lovers of literal bookworms—they eat the moths and beetles that devour glue and paper—they are also the library’s unwitting conservationists. And their presence is driving Joanina’s staff batty.

The bats are getting too much attention. The librarians want people to know Joanina for its books and the knowledge they contain, not for its flying mammals. Instead of fielding scholarly inquiries about rare, hand-illustrated Bibles or century-old world atlases, staff members find themselves mostly answering questions from visitors about the lives and habits of the bats.

“It pains me,” said Jorge Manuel Neves Justo Alexandre, who has been caretaker of Joanina since 2000. “Here you have all this beauty, this knowledge, and they are asking where the bats poop.”

Mr. Alexandre was recently discussing the issue with Celeste Mateus, a library worker who was vacuuming the main entrance, when a visitor interrupted. “Are the bats behaving?” asked Pinto Almeida, a judge from the Portuguese town of Coriscada.

Ms. Mateus rolled her eyes and answered, “Yes, yes,” before turning back to the vacuum cleaner.

“The questions are nonstop: Is it true they are here? Where are they? How did they get here?” she later added. “It requires patience.”

...

The library’s bats are small, often no more than 1 1/2 inches long, from a species called pipistrelle. A second species, called European free-tailed, may be present as well, based on a bat expert’s evaluation of the sounds they made during an inspection years ago.

The creatures are seldom seen during the day, when they mostly sleep behind the shelves. They sometimes fly out at night through cracks in the doors to feast on flies. Mr. Maia do Amaral said that visitors’ best chance to see them is on evenings the library holds classical music concerts.

No one is sure how long bats have been at the library, built in 1728 and furnished with black lacquered shelves, wood carvings and gold brought in from the Portuguese colony of Brazil. The library’s six reading tables are covered every evening with leather shrouds, which shield the wood from corrosive bat droppings and need to be vacuumed regularly. Mr. Maia do Amaral said he found old documents that showed the university imported lengths of leather from Russia in the late 1700s—he suspects for the same purpose.

And the answers to those bathroom questions? Years ago, when workers removed part of a shelf to repair it, they discovered a pile of bat guano about one yard high. A dark stain on the wall next to an opulent portrait of Portuguese monarch Dom João V seems to be a favored spot for bats to urinate.

On a recent visit to the university with her family, Lisa Mosquera, an office manager from Miami, was surprised to learn about the bats.

“It is so fascinating!” she said, and approached Mr. Alexandre with questions.

Catarina Freire, a Joanina guide for 16 years, said she doesn’t mention bats until the end of her tours, to avoid spending the whole time answering questions about them.

“Sometimes I think to myself: Enough of the bats!” she said. “They should be a detail in the midst of this splendorous temple of knowledge.”

A few excerpts:
• "It seems that this so-called social-media is nothing more complicated than the establishment of a public forum, or “plat-form,” upon which every plebeian member of the hoi polloi may post their every thought! As a news-paper man, a gentle-man of breeding, and an almost unspeakably rich man, this idea naturally threw me into a murderous rage."
• "The Onion shall become a social-media property! Where titans of reportage once trod, vulgarians shall argue incessantly, drowning each other in bilious ignorance!"
• "If this business has taught me one thing, it is that the demand for content is cyclical, and we have written so very much “content” in my life-time that I am sure we can begin repeating it without any-one noticing."

I started doing the wishlist a long time ago when there was some contest or something where random people would get their top 10 wishlist items free, but with this seeming boom of 'early access' I've been dumping anything that looks potentially interesting in there or just 'suggested' stuff I'm too lazy to investigate...

and to clarify my earlier point, obviously bundles should have a discount, but I've seen 75% discount bundles with items that are 50% off individually and the pricing is calculated with both those in effect (whereas the 75% would still be a bargain without also getting the 50%s) so that's why seemed odd / possible mistake :p

i'm unfamiliar w/ those horror titles... but i did come across "Dead by Daylight" ($9.99 after 50% discount)

sounds like 'Left 4 Dead' style (a 4 person multiplayer team) except there's also a 5th person who plays a murderer hunting them (not sure if any single player option)

i haven't played it or looked beyond some store page stuff

why can't we hunt down and exterminate the marketing people who put cut scene animations & screenshots in the game demo area... these have no worth at all

same as back when you had to go to the store & look at the back of the game boxes you'd be lucky to get 1 gameplay screen w/ 3 cutscene pix

seemingly obvious person run over

at first i thought the guy was cartoonishly flattened but then realized that's just his walker

probably a perfect storm issue... hidden by A-pillar while coming around bend, then driver looking for oncoming traffic... plus sun/shadow too maybe

After watching some gameplay, "Dead by Daylight" seems neat, but I can also see it getting repetitive after a few plays. It looks like it's the same mission over and over: the potential victims start a few generators to open an escape door. The killer wins if some/all don't escape. I'll still get it though :D

"Is it more of a shooter or a horror survival?"

Metro 2033 was probably more of a shooter, but there were a few scares. Haven't played Last Light yet.

Problem with that is I doubt it's going to go on such a discount for a good while, since an enhanced edition is releasing soon.

20% is a slap in the face amongst all the 50s & 75s

...but probably an enjoyable game

Looks like she was waiting for a taxi. Probably to get to the airport and leave Brazil? ;) ... probably best to wait inside the security door until the taxi arrives...

i wonder how many minutes on average you can be in public in Brazil without being mugged (she was about 20 secs, but i suspect that's on the low end... i bet most can go at least 5 mins)

Florida:

According to Cape Coral Police, around 1:30 a.m. Friday, officers responded to the 1300 block of NE Pine Island Lane after reports of a disturbance.

That's where police say John Hennessey was found in a front yard, completely naked while dancing around a fire and chanting while holding a knife. At one point he was actually standing in the fire.

"He was burning everything and I didn't realize he was naked until the cops got here," Heather Hennessey said.

Officers say Hennessey then dropped the knife but picked up a large wooden stick and began swinging it at the officers.

Hennessey was tased and placed in handcuffs while continuing to chant in an unknown language.

"He was screaming nonsense he always screams. It was in another language and I didn't know what he was saying," his sister said.

It was later learned that Hennessey had possibly consumed psychedelic mushrooms.

Steam Summer Sale update:

Just purchased my whole wish list :D
F.E.A.R., Batman: Arkham City, Alien vs. Predator, Arma 3, Goat Simulator, Never Alone, Sundered, Hollow Knight, Gauntlet, and Dead by Daylight. Of course... I won't have time to play these things.. but that's how it goes until I win the lottery and can just buy a research lab for my minions while I live the high life of video editing and animation ;p
