...out of the frying pan, into the fire.
The Wall Street Journal was first to report that The Federal Communications Commission will propose new open Internet rules this Thursday that will allow content companies to pay Internet service providers "for special access...

This does not inspire a single fucking iota of confidence in these assholes:

Tom Wheeler, the F.C.C. chairman, defended the agency’s plans, saying speculation that the F.C.C. was “gutting the open Internet rule” is “flat out wrong.” He added: “There is no ‘turnaround in policy.’ The same rules will apply to all Internet content. As with the original open Internet rules, and consistent with the court’s decision, behavior that harms consumers or competition will not be permitted.”

The providers would have to disclose how they treat all Internet traffic and on what terms they offer more rapid lanes, and would be required to act “in a commercially reasonable manner,” agency officials said. That standard would be fleshed out as the agency seeks public comment.

I have seen 115 of these movies.  I have some work to do.
Some of these are so bad they’re good; some of them are just terrible. These are the 170 bad movies dating from 1930s until today that you should never watch. If you’re feeling good about life, steer clear of any of the movies on this list. 1 New Line Cinema Reefer Madness (1936) 2 Alpha […]

Jesus - finally. But three years from broadcast to stream? 
 
Well! Looks like I'll finally get to see this "Wire" everyone's raving about.
Amazon and HBO have signed an extensive, multi-year agreement that will bring many of the premium channel's greatest shows including The Sopranos, Six Feet Under, and The Wire to Amazon Prime...

That sounds something like the deal HBO has with a Netflix clone here in Australia.

+Midwest .Miniature Guy That's the second time in as many days that someone's reminded me of Lady Death's existence. Getting a little worried.

Haven't read all the posts in this thread, but my knee-jerk reaction to the thread title was 'Is this a problem that needs addressing?' I mean, I really enjoy GM-less games but is the 'limited adoption' of such games even a thing?

I wouldn't be surprised if the average GMless game does better than the average GMed game on several interesting metrics. When you compare categories you don't just cherry-pick the top performers as representatives -- while the biggest market-share RPGs are GMed the biggest flops are almost certainly GMed games, too.

If you want to know how freaking discombobulated my brain has been for the last few months - I bought Combat Mission: Battle For Normandy like three weeks ago...

...and just now remembered I own it because I found the .pdf of the instruction manual in my laptop's desktop folder.

+Ralph Mazza There's still plenty of armor - it's not changed all that much, but it looks a lot nicer...and I hear there are lots of little simulation-y bits working under the hood (Overpressure from bazookas harming tank crews dumb enough to fire them indoors...stuff like that.) I've only played it for a few minutes but it looks nifty.

Yes, I am completely behind the curve on this, but I finally watched the first episode of True Detective last night. 

Yowza.

(Also, someone on Etsy has to be making a killing selling devil-traps, right?)

It starts out extremely strong, builds up to episode 4 and then it kinda sits there like flat beer that isn't quite as impressive of refreshing as that first sip implied it would be.
