Here is one really good movie based on a true story, I watched 2/3 of it and was just amazed. You also can find more about the man who is film based upon Carl Brashear but I recommend watching the movie first :)

 :)

Actually, I wondered similarly when I saw the poster here in Germany why they call the Movie "Batman vee Superman". The interpretation as roman V is interesting: Could it be a symbol for the fifth non-Nolan-Batman movie? :)

Batman v Superman was utterly bizarre, one of the weirdest big-budget blockbusters I have ever seen.

Something I watched lately. It is Disney's movie Cinderella music. It makes me wish to build something like that in my DC mod :)

"Pillow Fight Gorilla With The World!" was a song being sung in one of my dreams, last night.  At least, I assume that was the title, since those were the only lyrics being sung, over and over.  Try it.   ;)

Since hans posts a lot of his dreams, I thought I'd share one I had last night ...

It was long and convoluted, but a friend and I figured out we could move things with our minds. In the dream we were calling it the Force, ala Star Wars. We started small, lifting paper scraps and pencils. then we were moving silverware and plastic cups.

The older woman who games with us became our mentor, and was helping guide us even though she could not telekinetically move things, nor knew what was really happening. She was kind of like The Sphinx from Mystery Men; helpful in an eccentric and convoluted way.

Soon my friend and I were throwing frisbees and catching them in midair and flying them back using the force. Then we were lifting heavier things like car batteries and cinder blocks. Each time we moved on to heavier objects or finer manipulation, there was a sort of clear-headed unlocking in my dream mind. I could feel and envision exactly how to do these things. It took intense concentration and we had to use our hands and arms to help focus and visualize; just like you see Force users in star Wars doing when they do things.

Soon, my best friend became our driver ... he was like Kato from The Green Hornet. Which was funny to him when I told him this dream because he is Asian (from Thailand). A fourth gaming group member joined us, and he was more of comedy relief (akin to Weasel from Deadpool.)

We wound up in a car chase on an Interstate and highway, which moved into a downtown Las Vegas-like area. The other Force-user and I were pushing cars with telekinetic shoves, ripping off car tires and tossing them into the windscreens of other vehicles, flinging the bad guys around inside their cars and pulling them out of the windows. At one point, I super-jumped into a Humvee and was fighting a bunch of guys, almost like the SUV fight in Deadpool, except i was Force-punching and using my newly discovered fine-control skills to do things like yank out eyelashes (which hurt more than you think if you've never had it happen), make seat headrests pop up to smack bad guys leaning over the seats, making seat belts writhe and bind or choke them, and turning loose coins and pens into projectiles.

The Humvee flipped over and crashed, landing on its roof. I got out and saw a large pickup truck (F250 or Titan style) heading towards my force-user friend and our Kato-like driver. they didn't see it, being involved with some other bad dudes. I set myself and knew i had to really dig deep to save them. I raised my hands, my entire body was tense, I could smell and feel blood leaking from my nose, my head was pounding with the worst migraine I've ever had, feeling as if it was going to explode. Somehow I lifted that huge truck and flipped it to the side in the air, just missing my friends, and slamming it into a building wall.

I collapsed and passed out in the dream, waking up in my bed, with the feelings of rapidly fading headache, and I swear my upper lip was wet with blood, but when I wiped and checked it was dry and nothing was wrong. I could still feel, somewhere deep and faint in my mind, drifting ever quickly into my subconscious, the how of doing what I did in the dream.

I actually got out of bed and tried, for several minutes, to move something, anything, in my room with my mind. I was standing there arm out, muscles tense, eyes focused, head starting to throb; basically still a bit asleep and thinking i could really do this.

Then a piece of paper slipped off my computer desk and floated to the ground. I about peed myself until I realized the window AC unit had literally just kicked on and blown it off. It must have slowly moved the paper closer and closer to the desk's edge over the course of the night during each of it's cooling cycles.

Most vivid dream I have had in months, if not a year or so.

Cool, I have never been dreaming about superheroes :). Yesterday I was watching a lot music videos about Batman Vs Superman and other and I found that there is new version of Punisher, it seems to be TV show with Daredevil.

Now watching those music videos I was thinking how it would be to do a DC Punisher mod, I think I might think more about it and maybe give it a go sometime in the future, maybe do some 3d art if I get better, but now it seems there is a lot of material from TV that can be used in mod.

But first thing I was about to say is that those superheroes movies became a lot more violent, I think that they are not for children above 12 and I think they are just for 18+, even Batman and Superman and others. But Punisher is just too violent, it just have sceenes now that are problematic for grown ups too. I mean it is like Mortal Combat that was censored because it was too violent and bloody. I really am just surpised with explicit violence in this new version.

Still Punisher was my favorite from childhood, I think I started reading it from 14 and we had Conan and Punisher only in my country maybe a bit of Spiderman and Superman but that was some older comics. Punisher was relatively new and well it didn't lasted long but I still remember and like him from those times.

Here are 2 songs, and as I have said it is very explicit and violent, but I think I have found those that are least violent if that is possible. Also in this version he looks like captain of my rugby club who was also captain of national team :/ very much:

:) A bit more about Punisher, though I like him and would like to do a mod about him I think it would be better to do something on my own where I can decide what will happen. I know something about punisher but I doubt it is good enough. For now here is how he should look like http://orcz.com/Marvel_Heroes:_Punisher_Classic_Costume, maybe I will do some art of him but for now will leave it and try to do my own DC Hero mod which might include some mention of him though I am not sure how it will be if I do it at all. One more song about him, he is a bit too violent lol Frank Castle || "Wrong Side Of Heaven" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mFfEK_rumPc

Searching on Youtube about Punisher I also have found videos about DragonCon and other various Cons that look interesting and here is just a few that are most interesting and that I have watched:

I have installed Ubuntu 16 and it works good for now, but I will need some time to get used to it :)

Just few videos to keep my motivation up, I wish I knew who are people that are speaking about it:
