I need to think of some new movies to suggest. Several of the movies that I've suggested have won the vote though, so I'm holding off because I want to watch things that I normally never would have watched.
Wait did I miss the stream again? Fuck…
It has not started yet so you are on time.>not 100% sure when it starts because clocks don't use freedomtime over here
oh thank god. I was a bit busy doing some….stuff after work. Usually I have afternoon/night shifts but this past couple weeks it's been more unpredictable. Finally got time for stream fun!
oh I'm being 'tarded again aren't I. Last stream was six days ago, not seven.
…and my work ends at 6, so I'll miss most of it. Great.
Uhm,.. the stream won't be for another 17+ hours,…
I miss movie night ;.;
Hmmmmm. You're 5 hours ahead of EST and 8 ahead of PST,… thats a difficult threshold to accommodate. Let me do some brainstorming
The simplest solution would be for someone in the UK or some other timezone closer to Europe to host a movie night stream. Then anons who are available could tune in. You're not the first anon who has expressed dismay at the disparity of timezones due to the ocean between us.
I'd tune in to the EU stream if I were ever to find myself available, although given the time zone difference I probably wouldn't be able to show up the European movie night until the second or third feature.
Its worth looking into though. I haven't heard any comments about Eurostreams in like a year, but if there's a demand (even just one or two) its worth looking into.
In the meantime, and because I really haven't had a whole lot of time to come up with something better in the interim, I'm gonna start
with Upgrade. That isn't "The" first feature, its just what I'm gonna start playing in about ten minutes, and we can hash it out then.https://www.rabb.it/ninjas
Thanks to everyone who attended this week's stream. It was entirely unplanned (the schedule that is), the movies were literally decided on the spot (except the ones that were sequels), but it was delightful and nostalgic (lots of old favorites). Sorry if I sperged too much about Metaphysics,… I do that.
New strawpoll for the enduring and pursuant requests for next week. https://www.strawpoll.me/17932858
I recommend Jerry Lewis, cracking up 1983. It begins with a jew trying to hang himself and 9-11ing the building.
It was one of the best streams. Each movie was good.
It was Christianity if I remember well.
By vote, the three movies for tomorrow night's movie night will be:
The Time Machine
Swiss Family Robinson>>220584
Metaphysics is universally applicable. A person who is Christian can utilize the concepts just as much as a Pagan.
The word “Metaphysics” is just a blanket term referring that branch of philosophical inquiry that asks questions about the nature of existence. It is not a point of view, it is a category under which many ideas and points of view fall. It’s kind of like ethics. There are many ethical doctrines that are not Christian and they are many that are Christian. Likewise, there are many metaphysical view points that are not Christian, and many that are. For instance, Thomistic metaphysics is one of the more well known Christian metaphysics, and there are others as well.
In the Aristotelian sense, you're correct. However, in certain contexts (namely this one) logic is less applicable.
I have no idea what that is supposed to mean, but I take it it means “I’ve commandeered the word for my own meaning and I don’t care.” I suspect the use here is to take the word by its literal translation as “beyond physics.” That is, to refer exclusively to those metaphysical theories that postulate the existence of a non-physical form of existence, which pretty much means everything except materialism. Metaphysical Naturalism (which is the technical name for pretty much all modern scientific Atheism), would be excluded from this (even though so far as I am concerned, Metaphysical Naturalism is still metaphysical). In this context I suspect the specific postulated non-materialist metaphysical doctrine is used as basically religion or a substitute for it, by trying to make conscious contact with the non-physical. In that case, “Mysticism” is the proper term.
Me? I've done nothing of the sort. What I am doing has long since been done. If you wish to see it as a commandeering, so be it.
One could say that there's an element of mysticism to it, but that would be a statement made in ignorance. What appears as mystical neglects the science behind it. Is the symbol of Pi significant without the understanding of its relation of circular dynamics? So it is with Metaphysics. On observation it looks like theatre and mysticism, but there is an underlying phenomenology to it.
Movie poll is up, I totally wasn't going to forget about it again I swear.https://www.strawpoll.me/17987881
Seventh Fairy has been selected for 1st feature, with a r-way tie for 2nd and 3rd between Blackbeard's Ghost, The Party, and Runaway Train. So we'll figure that out when the time comes.
Show starts at 5p/8p ESTIf the image is not the right movie, plz let me know
Sorry I missed Day of the Triffids btw
I'm working to resolve the issue now if I can
Its not just me that's having issues, though I am having issues. I've been having an intermittent problem with my PC, where it will connect to available networks but won't send or receive any data. I'm troubleshooting right now, but I make no promises. The issue occurred last night and it didn't resolve its self until sometime around 10p EST
Well yes there is that, but even if Rabbit wasn't sucking dicks, my PC still is.
Are you connecting via a wired connection or a wireless connection?
I'm using a laptop to connect to Wifi. I have 2 available wifi accounts, but the laptop registers as "Connected, No Internet" even though both connections are good.
Reset (reboot) the router.
Negative. One router is actively functioning (I'm using it as we speak, but can't use this to run Rabbit cuz reasons), and the other is a mobile hotspot that I've been using ever since I started doing MLP and Movie night, without issue.
That makes me suspect that the issue isn't with your laptop, but is instead with your router, your modem, or something further upstream. I'd reboot both the router and the modem if possible.
Can you attach your laptop to the router via an ethernet cable? This would rule out your laptop's wireless card as the problem.
I assure you, the issue is with my laptop. There's several devices connected and operating on the Wifi right now.
I've already tried connecting an Ethernet cable directly, and it gives the same result; Connected, No Internet.
Okay! I've got the laptop working!
According to Rabbit, only 301 more rabbitcasts to go before they can start mine.
Sorry, but its looking like Movie Night is not gonna happen. ~_~
I promise, I'm not going to stop trying things and looking for a work-around, but I'm just being real; I can't guarantee anything.
Out of curiosity, what resolved the issue?
Also I just tried connecting to rabbit myself and it's stating 301 for me as well. I think that they're lying to us with that number.
Disconnecting the laptop battery and reconnecting it, oddly enough
My rabbit just started running. Do they still have you stuck waiting?
