  1. Medicare should definitely cover in-home care for people like my dad, especially if in hospice.
  2. That different, huh? Does it at least pay homage to the Sho Kosugi movies from the 80s? Like because, only a ninja can kill a ninja! LOL!
  3. I don't mind updating lore or tweaks here and there, I just don't like things being changed to where they are unrecognizable, or stupid changes like the Baroness used to date Duke, like the first Joe movie. My impression of the film Snake Eyes (i haven't seen yet) is they might be keeping enough of the lore to make me happy. You HAVE to update the war which any Joe served because Viet Nam is so long ago, now. We have to remember that in the 1980s, Viet Nam was barely a decade prior to ARAH. Now, it is nearly 50 years ago when it ended in 1975! As for the show you are going
  4. Yeah, origins in opening credits seems to be a lost art. Everyone wants to give an origin story movie, now. One fairly recent movie that I think did a great job in opening credit origins is the MCU The Incredible Hulk. Say what you will about that movie, the one thing it nailed was the origin that was told in like 3 minutes.
  5. Yeah, I know I would never forgive myself if I was too late. I was just saying the thought crossed my mind late at night. But I love my dad, and even though he is in hospice, I still want him to recover as best he can. Changing gears a bit, one thing I think people don't realize is hospice in the home is a lot of work for the family. A lot of people assume hospice is there all the time and taking care of the needs of the patient. Not so. The hospice we have through Banner only has a nurse out 2 days a week, for an hour or so at a time. On call does exist 8am-5PM, with a 1 800 numb
  6. Actually I would combine both of those into a CGI animated serialized show, based on the lore established Larry Hamma's comic version of GI Joe, and do something like the GI Joe Special Missions. I'd prefer the Joe team and Cobra already established, not beginning with an origin story. It would be OK to do flashbacks as the series progresses, but I don't dig everything having to have an origin story these days, especially when everyone and their brother is connected somehow. That is why the first live action movie didn't work for me.
  7. I am sorry about your grandma. I have to say I am +3 on what Fozzie said. Not to mention it is curious no one told you anything about your grandma until after the fact. Outside in, that is a total dick move and intentional. You still have to put your kids first.
  8. When I found my Dad 2 weeks ago, I was glad I was there to save his life. But, last night as I was laying sleepless last night worrying about him, I confess I have had thoughts that if I had known he would refuse treatment and go on hospice, I wondered if it would have been better if I was too late. I don't want anything bad to happen to my Dad, and I feel like a total asshole for even entertaining the thought, but I wonder if it had been more merciful.
  9. So my dad is at home on hospice now. It had been non-stop work and I am exhausted. My brother and I are taking turns in shifts, with me at night so that I can work during the day, and him and the care giver during the day doing the heavier lifting. My dad has to have someone with him at all times because he is bed ridden. Mad respect for nurses and caregivers who do this type of work for a living. I don't know how they last past a day in those professions!

    The Guardians?

    I like that they retained the Indians font, for Guardians. The logo I was referencing is this one, which kind of reminds me of Major League the film.

    The Guardians?

    I actually like the name Guardians. Not sure about the logo, though, but it is kinda cool I guess.
  12. Is it connected to the other 2 Gi Joe movies?
  13. Well, whomever did it is a pretty low, cowardly, and horrible human being.
  14. I've made peace with my Dad's decision. It still hurts, but now I am in the mode of carrying out what my Dad wants and helping him out. He is not home yet, as he had a rectal bleeding issue, likely a broken hemorrhoid. He may be released today, or sometime soon. As for him deciding hospice, yeah, that is exactly what the doctors are saying. It will likely be a matter of weeks. Knowing how my dad is, and how he is with birthday and deathday dates, he may be trying to make it until the day my mom passed on aug 13. I have been helping my dad (and mom when she was ali
