    You might like Benny Greb - Brass Band. I think he's got a couple albums in this style.

    Can't complain about the acting pedigree, but with the emp being a major star I'm not sure which direction they'd be going for the story. My memory is fuzzy but I recall the emp who interacted with Seldon (and was manipulated by the robot) being kind of a weak man, and he wasn't featured very heavily.

    Thoughts?

    I enjoyed Kaguya-sama: Love is War so much it was the first time I read the manga after seeing an anime. A second season was just announced, so I'm pretty happy about that. It strikes a really great balance of humor and genuine emotion; it also toys with tropes while turning them on their head often enough that you're kept guessing at what will happen next.

    About 13% hazelnuts, which is more than the amount of chocolate. It is mostly sugar and fat, not disputing that part. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nutella

    Wait, are you saying the NGE movies actually... make sense? I really disliked how little the series explained about what was happening and why it was happening. I was going to start in on the moves when I finished the series but decided I hadn't enjoyed the series enough, in part thanks to this factor, to justify spending more hours of my life on the franchise.

    While I know basically nothing about fine art, I find this conservation process utterly fascinating. This is one of the simpler ones he's posted. There's one where the painting has literally been ripped into 4 pieces and just overall thrashed that's (to me) even more impressive.

    That said, if someone had asked me "what tools do you think a painting conservationist would use?", "table saw" probably would not have been one of my answers.

    Did you watch Houseki no Kuni? It's 80%-ish 3D, with I think 2D work on the character's faces.

    There is a minimap. Your teammates appear on the minimap. Players can put markers which everyone can see. The location of any mission objective is marked on the map.

    Oh yeah, MW 2012 was terrible for its DLC. I wasn't crazy about the "find cars to unlock them" thing in general, but the DLC integration was so bad. Fortunately they didn't do that in any games since then. NFS 2015 didn't have any DLC iirc and Payback, while it did have microtransactions and loot boxes, only had car DLC as regular purchases.

    I'm still going to wait for the reviews, but this is at least one step in the right direction. I was really quite disappointed with Payback.
