  1. I am liking this a lot. I've heard of West Coast Customs via various Youtubers getting wraps on their high end cars.The idea of having such a local company aspect tied to the new coaster is really interesting and fitting with the car theme. Plus, it looks like a fun coaster, taking some of the ideas from Twisted Colossus and Full Throttle, then ramping them up to be the whole coaster. Now that my little cousin is finally ready to go to Magic Mountain, I'll be able to check this out sooner rather than later.
  2. No surprise at a surfing theme for the Boardwalk. I get that Hangtime sounds like it fits, and probably will end up the name. But, that other trademarked name, The Ledge would work as well. "Breaking the ledge" is an actual surfing term, a reference to part of a wave. It's probably a bit esoteric for the general public, but, we shall see.
  3. Ninja Sex Party with TWRP at the El Rey in LA. Both are pretty comic bands, with an 80's vibe. They also grew and developed thanks to Youtube. NSP is a side project from the Game Grumps. It's a great group of people, and the fans are so nice to be around. We are all just a bunch of geeks.
  4. It has been a very long time since I logged in. This caught my eye, and I just had to. I will say, life didn't just go off the rails, it steamrolled over my family in a very bad way, for a very long time. Basically, I took care of my mom, as she fought cancer for several years. So, rough times. I did go on a TPR trip long ago. I don't even want to think how many years it has been. The memories of that, helped keep me going during the hardest of times. The videos you guys put in the meantime, were perfect bite size distractions, when needed. I felt connected to an outside world I couldn't be pa
  5. Wootstout 2.0 Very Strong, 13.5%, but very rich flavor, really good.
  6. Yeah, Back Alley, that can go in so many directions, in thought, whimsical isn't one of them. Still, the area definitely needs a renovation, that will be very welcome.
  7. I do very much like this. This has so much of the iconic look and feel of Colossus, vastly updated to provide a fun, updated, exciting ride. So many coasters have track that crisscross in structure, and images and ads emphasize it, but the reality is that two trains never cross in that way. Keeping the tracks separate and having long form inversions right over the other track is such a cool effect. Hopefully, they can maintain that kind of operation. Well done.
  8. Hmm, I was just checking out the SkyVue webcam and things seemed to have changed a bit. It had been looking pretty forlorn, with some ragged tarps just blowing in the wind. Now the tarps are gone and it looks (it is night) like there is a crane on site, now. Anyone hear of any new developments?
  9. I voted for Option 1. I really do like having a Twitter feed, just, right there. I've seen it on more and more sites, lately. While I am sure the main page will be updated as quickly as necessary. Tweets tend to be an even faster, and simpler way of giving notice of anything immediately noteworthy. A quick glance at the feed and, boom, I am up to date. I, also, like the way that the feed helps frame and anchor the main image window. Option 2, on my monitor, has the huge main image, and nothing more. It looks fine, but, for me, having that floating there, makes it feel incomplete
  10. I agree with you about Skyvue's location way down south.. You pique my curiosity with that comment about Skyvue. As for High Roller's location, actual experience on the wheel will provide that answer. Though the points being made are certainly valid. Being that high up, broadens the possibilities of the view, no matter where it stands; plus, with the economy improving, who knows where and what will provide the new center of growth in Vegas. It seems a new spurt has begun and the Linq is a major start to that. With the former Echelon spot getting ready to restart construction, with a Chi
  11. I loved American Hustle, as well. I was a bit worried that it might get lost behind "Look at me, it's the 70's, laugh at the bad fashion" vibe I was getting initially. Funny enough, that aspect was handled very well, throw it in your face then let the characters stand for themselves. By the end, you don't see the fashion, you only see well developed characters who you've seen grow and change. I was also worried at first that the pace might be a bit slow, but, the dialog draws you into the characters. It is only when they are well developed that the story really kicks into gear, which elev
  12. ^Really nice looking wheel there. I just wish it was more one the strip itself, but, at least it got built. It's sad that the Skyvue project still has a live webcam up, looking at the same dead construction site all these months. They should probably just turn it off.
  13. I put up simple decorations, our main deal is pumpkins. Every year 12 or more pumpkins, I usually use those patterns but I always make up some on my own or just get an idea from something around. The past few years my mom has carved half of them, though, this year, due to illness, I don't think she will be able to do much, so it will be up to me. Here's some examples, using the multi uploader: I thought this wouldn't take that long, 4 hours later... Why not?
  14. Took a moment for myself today, and checked out Gravity in 3d. Blown Away. Visuals obviously incredible. Definitely somewhat disorienting at times, matching to some extent, what the characters are going through. I think done in a way that rides that line, just when things start to push, the director pulls back and stabilizes the shot by switching the perspective, then back again. This is no Cloverfield. For example, non spoiler territory, you have a nice shot of earth, like you would see in any other movie, but then it just envelopes you as if you were an astronaut and it is unsteady, I
  15. All I know is that, I couldn't remember the name "Full Throttle after 3 days of trying. I had to look it up. I only think of it as YOLOcoaster.
