Actually while checking other threads, it looks like it first takes you the the newest unread post from this member. When you select again, it goes to the last. hmmm... I thought the arrow next to the thread title was supposed to take care of the "new" unread post (regardless of who made it), while the one next to the user name should take you to this actual, last post, from that specific member. This is how it works on another forum.

(it does work when I want to edit my post - I'm going straight to it. But obviously it has already been read so..... oh well, more testing ahead I guess )

...Trying to get used to the default theme after months in the "dark"... Not sure I'll keep it, I feel more at home with the dark theme.

Eww more changes. The least they could have done was add the horror character smileys. Thanks AVS.

I think according to the discussion on the forum change the right arrow isn't working correctly and should be taking you to the last post at least (I want the first unread). Gotta be lots of fun to update a big board like this (!).

"Haunt" is very good and has some good chills in it so I'll give it 4 family ghosts. And "Jug Face" is weird but also worth a watch so 4 empty moonshine jugs for it (I know oink would prefer them full).

What the heck? Go away for a day or two and now there are CHANGES?

Watched Alyce Kills last night. Mixed bag for me. I am not really keen on the depressing drug use/descent into psychotic killer sub genre of horror flics. A couple of funny moments with the personal trainer, and the very ending, but a little work to get to the payoff. 2.5 Zombies under the influence of ecstacy.

I'm doing the same, should be streaming free on nf by then anyhow. Might be a good time for a double feature and re-watch the first one as well.

I about fell out of my chair laughing at the ending. Speaking of Ecstasy I watched the documentary about the godfather of it and saw some very familiar scenery. Turns out he lived about 8 miles down the road from me.

And it's a full moon! I think that is cause for a horror film tonight. Next Friday the 13th full moon is not until 2049.

I see they've disabled the arrow probably because it wasn't working as advertised to get you to the last post or first unread post.

Indeed, a good deal. I have been checking craigslist for a decent sub to add some nearfield midbass oomph and brand name 8-12" subs are running $100ish, so $200 for the satellites plus sub is good value.

Did Bad Milo (2013). Seems like I had seen some mixed reviews on here but I enjoyed it. Dragged a bit in parts, but over all I enjoyed it's over the top fun tone and celebration of bathroom humor.
I give it 4 colonoscopy Zombies.
