When you finally get to watch Discovery and realize it isn't actually an enormous pile of mugato dung
  • It's the classic hero's journey, where the hero starts out grumpily going along with the journey, but by the end, taking the lessons to heart and standing as exemplar to those ideals

  • When you finally get to watch Discovery and realize it isn't actually an enormous pile of mugato dung
  • I really wish it had gotten seven seasons. By the end the episodes were getting really good, and I think they could have made it great with more time

  • A little bit of patriotism - as a treat
  • If they weren't around, America might actually be a country you could be proud of

  • Alec Baldwin's manslaughter trial over Rust shooting has been dismissed
  • It would be like letting the owner of a company walk...

    So standard practice

  • Nihilist would give him one star
  • I don't bother writing a review unless it's a one or five star. Maybe a particularly offensive two star

  • Dwayne "The Trek" Johnson
  • I thought it was pretty good. The main bad guy was our darling Jeffrey Combs, and the grizzled mentor Hirogen that taught Seven was cool

  • "Star Trek is woke now"
  • And now the Himbo is their king

  • "Star Trek is woke now"
  • And he narrates the audiobook himself!

  • "Star Trek is woke now"
  • Still takes a spirit of adventure at least

  • Dwayne "The Trek" Johnson
  • So close. That's the Fight. It was the episode where Tom broke the law to save that ocean planet

    The episode was obviously called Tsunami

  • Actor George Clooney, a high-profile Biden supporter and fundraiser, asks president to leave race
  • I noticed he sounded like Trump in one of his recent statements. I guess this is just what happens when you insist on holding the most stressful job imaginable while well beyond the age of retirement

  • Mirror Spock was not just Spock with a beard
  • Why else would Kirk make someone his first officer?

  • There's a clear winner here
  • I think the only book I've read that included sad people having affairs was from Game of Thrones. I'm more into just general suffering

  • Megachurch Conducts Successful Nuclear Missile Test
  • Please don't give them any ideas

  • Trump’s ‘secretary of retribution’ has a ‘target list’ of 350 people he wants arrested
  • We're just about on schedule for the one Star Trek predicted

  • Could it be?
  • I mean, yeah, this did happen. People hundreds of years ago found scary-looking bones, and imagined what they could be from. Dinosaur translates to basically Terror Lizard for a reason. That doesn't mean that they were dragons though lmao

  • How Much Is Your Time Worth?
  • More than I can afford, unfortunately

  • Dawntrail MSQ is great and I don't understand where the hate comes from
  • I had fun, but I thought the writing was pretty weak. The Scions and Erenville felt flat, and Krile especially, which was weird, since it seemed like she was supposed to be important this time.

    A lot of the beginning felt like it was building up plot points and doing foreshadowing, and then nothing came of it.

    The pacing was rough, especially in the last zone. The design of the inside of the volcano filled me with rage

  • The Apiarist

    This is a personal creation, so I apologize if the name is already taken.

    *1.5oz gin *1oz Amaro Sfumato Rabarbaro *.75oz honey syrup *.5oz lemon juice

    Shaken and served with an expressed lemon peel, and a dash of Hummingbird Bitters

    Orion Hurricanes for the Star Trek Lower Decks finale tonight

    Unfortunately, you can't get real Orion Dulac in Michigan, so this is my take on what Mariner would have served Those Old Scientists

    • 1.5oz White rum (I used Plantation 3 Star)
    • .75oz Cinnamon syrup
    • .75oz Lime juice
    • .5oz Absinthe (I used what they make at my local distillery, American Fifth)
    • .5oz John D. Taylor Velvet Falernum Liqueur
    • 1 barspoon Blue curaçao (for colour)

    Shake, and double strain. Garnish with a cinnamon stick, and slowly pour in two barspoon of grenadine so that it sinks to the bottom. This could also be swapped for butterfly pea flower syrup, which is purple. I just wanted the grenadine flavor

    My first complete battle map

    This is for an upcoming session this Saturday. I've never been the kind of person that's into drawing, but I'm GMing my own PTU campaign, and I hated making maps online lol

    I've been practicing for about a week now, and I'm pretty happy with this little map.

    The setting is a small cave, complete with giant mushrooms, crystals, and a pond, which served as the improvised "break room," for a couple of miners my players found the skeletons of at the end of the last session.

    The Captain's Blood

    First cocktail made in my new bar! Just moved, and finally have it set up. Lots of decorating left for the new space though.

    This is a basic twist on a Daquiri.

    • 3oz Angostura 5 Year Caribbean Rum
    • 1.5oz lime juice
    • .66oz rich symple syrup (.75oz if you use 1:1)
    • 3-4 dashes Angostura aromatic bitters

    Shake, double strain, and garnish with a lime wedge.

    Corpse Reviver No.2

    The ultimate brunch cocktail.

    Equal parts gin, orange liqueur, Lillet Blanc, and lemon juice, shaken and served in an absinthe rinsed coupe.

    I think this drink alone is enough reason to keep Lillet on hand. American Fifth is my local distillery; I highly recommend their spirits if you get the chance, but any absinthe will do here.

    A Classic Sidecar

    Mostly wanted to post because I feel like I did a really good job on the sugared rim lol

    This is one of my favorite cocktails

    1.5oz brandy .75oz orange liqueur .75oz lemon juice

    Shake, double strain, serve in a glass with a sugared rim, and garnish with a orange twist. I expressed mine.

    Not a reflection on meme quality, but on meme alignment

    Maybe a little too meta, but I think we could use Dukat for memes specifically meant to express funny, but bad, opinions

    Nuclear Daquiri in leaded crystal (for safety)

    It's been a while, but I got some new glassware, and wanted to try it out. I felt like a Nuclear Daquiri was appropriate for leaded crystal. I tweaked the recipe a bit to my own tastes, I'll denote that below

    • 1oz Overproof White Rum - Wray and Nephew
    • .5oz White Rum - Plantation 3 Star (omit for basic recipe)
    • .66oz Galliano (Green Chartreuse for basic recipe)
    • .75oz Lime Juice
    • .33oz Falernum

    Shake and double strain, garnish however you like

    Sidewinder's Fang

    • 1.5oz Orange juice
    • 1.5oz Lime juice
    • 1.5oz Passionfruit syrup
