Title: What's Frustrating You?
Post by: nCogNeato on May 24, 2011, 11:42:26 AM
One of my favorite threads from the old xbox.com forum.

Whatever is frustrating you at the moment, big or small, post it here and relieve some stress.   >:( :)

Today, my biggest frustration is actually having to work.

One of my employees is on vacation this week.  So now I have to pick up the slack instead of playing on the internet ... which reminds me ... bye.    ;)

Yes.  I did the exact same thing with my sister when I got my new Slim console a couple weeks ago.

I actually still have 20+ items in my download queue waiting to be downloaded to her console.  The whole process is twice as frustrating when the consoles are in different homes.   >:(

I think that was the survey on the front of the site with 5 choices and none of them were BF3 and MW3 was sitting on the top of the list of choices. I mean if you're going to do a survey do a real one!

So eh yeah that's frustrating I guess  :P

Here's what's frustrating me. I've recently had to change my avatar to an old bald man because for the ump-teenth time this year I have been "propositioned" for a DATE! on xbox live!!! 


More frustrating?? I'm 51 and the guys that are propositioning me are between the ages of 16 and 20.  Now, had they been in their 40's (I look young for my age) or 50's I might not be so frustrated, but as it stands.....GRRRRR!   :o


Handily enough, everyone has left me alone since I've changed my gamertag and avatar.  ;D


Thanks for letting me vent!

Television Key Art - specifically junk like this:
(http://apocalypticthoughts.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/456267_353562004707653_2143150110_o1.jpg)
(http://www.ksitetv.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/revolutionposter.jpg)
On the surface, nothing wrong, I guess, although it looks like someone's gone a bit Photoshop happy. Then there's this:

Summary of Revolution:
Quote
Our entire way of life depends on electricity. So what would happen if it just stopped working? Well, one day, like a switch turned off, the world is suddenly thrust back into the dark ages. Planes fall from the sky, hospitals shut down, and communication is impossible. And without any modern technology, who can tell us why? Now, 15 years later, life is back to what it once was long before the industrial revolution: families living in quiet cul-de-sacs, and when the sun goes down lanterns and candles are lit. Life is slower and sweeter. Or is it?

So we're led to believe that 15 years after this cataclysmic event, in a world without electricity - "life is back to what it was long before the industrial revolution"...yet somehow characters manage perfectly clean and well kept designer jackets and clothing as well as $100 hair-styling and apparently the Make Up industry is still thriving.

Sounds petty, but stuff like this tends to remove me from fully buying the experience of watching most TV shows and even some films I'd otherwise be more interested in. If you're going to depict a desolate wasteland, a world of hardship...don't give me characters wearing clean designer outfits and looking like someone who stepped out of Entourage.

I'm probably in the minority when it comes to this, but I think, especially in the poster-work for this genre - it seems to show a lack of respect for the project to gloss so much disconnected imagery on something that's supposed to be the gateway to your show/film. 

Exhibit B:
(http://www.sorozatguru.info/wp-content/uploads/2009/12/NewLostPoster.jpg)

Exhibit C:
(http://houseofchange.files.wordpress.com/2012/02/serie-terra-nova.jpg)

Slightly removed from that spectrum:
(http://wfiles.brothersoft.com/t/the-walking-dead-poster_147185-1152x864.jpg)

See, it's not like you can't make an effort, but the fact that you choose not to makes me want to say, go f*ck yourself Hollywood...
