I just watched the season finale. Overall I liked it (still not as good as Power was in its prime but very enjoyable episode). Here are my thoughts, lemme know what you guys think.
Also, in Jabari's office, Detective Santana (Laz Alonzo) saw Tariq there. So when it comes time to investigate jabari's murder, Santan... keep reading on reddit ➡
First time posting so my bad if idk the proper protocol.
Effie is back. Although idk how she expects for Tariq to just trust her and take her back after she screwed him over by getting him expelled. I know she justifies it by saying “I did what I had to” but there was enough room for both of them to drug deal peacefully. Buttttt he takes her back. And she’s still a bitch
2-bit is a straight goon. Dude can’t act but his character is great. I got all excited when he took care of business in the pool area. So badass when he took the cell pic of the dead body on the burner and sent it right back to them.
I’m really starting to enjoy Dru’s character. Last episode he took care of the guy monet shot by staging it like a truck hijack and murder. He did it like a pro. This episode he whooped some ass and was even willing to take the fall for Cane. As an older brother-younger brother relationship, it’s great.
professor jabari Reynolds....most annoying professor in school history. This guy is so pathetic, I really want somebody to pistol whip him. You’re a professional writer who is stealing your freshman student’s work. You constantly stalk this kid and your co-worker. Tariq’s dumbass is discussing business out loud right at the door of the motel room. Mofo go inside, shut the door and talk. Now jabari has a hard on for Tariq and can’t write a god damn chapter of his book without taking Tariq’s papers or stalking Tariq.
I feel bad for zeke. In this episode you really see how he’s not just with that lady prof for the sex. He actually wants a relationship with her and someone to talk to. He really doesn’t wanna disappoint monet and he’s got a ton of pressure on him to succeed in bball. And he tells dru to let that GTG Guap guy go even tho he was about to blow zeke’s knee off.
brayden needs to stop being so sensitive man. Yeah Tariq didn’t involve u in the cocaine business. But you also don’t know anything about cocaine either so it’s not like he would’ve done that shit properly. I know he’s mad about Tariq lying but Tariq should just tell him Riley was a snitch working with the feds
Anyway, that’s all I got for tonight. Tap in when you guys finish the episode.
So I want to watch PowerBook 2 so bad but people keep telling me to watch power first but I want to skip it. So should I skip it or watch it? please tell me is power worth it.
Tariqs acting improved as the show went on. I binged watched btw. The main problem I had with the show was the fact a lot of the characters were literally pointless. They only put the teachers in the show because he is in school but other then that they all were just kinda there, I was happy when one was killed.
Tariq will kill 2bit to get the money he owes Monet. When Tariqs back is against the wall he is willing to anything.
Evidence: Tariq is wearing the gold Rolex in court that 2bit was wearing when he stuck Tariq up. The writers wouldn’t have made it a focus if it was important.
When Tariqs back is against the wall he will do whatever it takes. And remember Tariq is Ghost. Ghost took out everyone who tried exploiting him for money, example, how ghost took out Jason.
Cane: will break Lorenzo out of jail and lerenzo become Rico’s new distro.
Brayden: will set Riley up to help Tariq get Tasha off.
Tasha: will get out of jail and MAYBE Tommy will show up.
Tariq can't help but feel left out, as parents flood the campus for homecoming.
Tariq's hands are tied, fearing that fully letting Brayden in on their arrangement with the Tejadas has put him on a violent collision course with Cane, who demonstrates the price paid for using his name.
Monet needs to go. She is too irrational to be a crime boss, and pushes her best soldier out (Cane), whilst trying to make Dru fill his shoes which he clearly isn't into.
Also, the falling out with Cane doesn't make sense as he was needed, as part of the business entailed moving coke which was done on the streets (evidenced by Dru and Diana bagging up Coke, and Dru questioning Cane over him taking their corners)
He could've been the street lieutenant, whilst Dru works with Tariq. Cane would've still felt needed, and wouldn't try to kill Tariq and bringing heat over them. Hell, Tariq could then ask Cane to get rid of 2bit when he tried to extort him.
Moreover, Monet wouldn't have to give Tariq bricks, a product too hot for campus. She wouldn't be short of money, and wouldn't have a falling out with Rico and wouldn't have her place shot up.
Even when Cane came through at the end, her dumb ass is caught up in emotion and can't see that his loyalty is with family.
I'm currently using a USB-C laptop dock and changing between my Surface Book 3 and a Dell work laptop. The dock gets enough power to charge my work laptop without the laptop adapter, but when I'm using my Surface I need it to be plugged in. I'm looking for a laptop dock that can connect through USB-C and supply enough power to my Surface Book 3 using only the dock's adapter.
Haunted by the legacy of his father, Tariq tries to understand who James St. Patrick was to the people in his life.
If there are any mods still on here i am interested in helping adding episode discussion for book 2 onwards. if you are looking new mods.
I'm flexible here. I'd prefer to keep it under 3k. 2k would be the sweet spot.I live in the US.
I originally purchased this Surface Book 2 so that I could do art and VR on it.
This was a bad choice.
First, while the Surface Book 2 has a 1060, it has a huge power throttling and heat throttling issue. There's some work arounds for this, basically undervolting stuff and that makes it not so useful for the intended purposes.
Second, because of a weird quirk of it's integrated and dedicated dual GPU design, it can't actually be used with the Oculus or Vive VR headsets. I actually sold my Vive headset so it's no longer that big a deal, but still, I'd like the option in case I should have that open up again at some point.
Doing the art stuff though means that I need some kind of 2 in 1 solution and a sensitive touch screen. I LOVE the Surface Book 2 touch screen for art. The 2k resolution, and sensitivity are great. I don't care if it's yoga style and folds up or whatever. It doesn't need to detach like the Surface Book 2, it just needs to be good resolution and a good touch screen.
Good build quality.
Battery life isn't super important as I pretty much only use it while it's plugged in to a dock, or plugged in at a coffee shop (during non covid times etc)
Thin would be nice. Metal body is a must. I don't move my laptop around much but when I do I like it to easily fit in my backpack and not feel like I'm carrying around a desktop that got smushed into a pancake.
15 minimum. 17 would be nice though with a decent touch screen.
Blender, Adobe CC, Cinema 4D, Unity.
I do also do a lot of 3D art and photoshop etc, and so having power for that is important. Again though, 1060 seems like it can handle that pretty well.
I would like to be able to game on this. I don't play a lot... keep reading on reddit ➡
Hey everyone, I've gotten some requests to do this again last year so here it is!
For those who did not use it last year, I've created an excel sheet that will give you some more info that fantasy sites will give you. I made a formula to give power rankings, a luck meter, statistics, and some graphs.
The way the excel file works is that you fill in team scores for in the first group, scores against in the second group, and W or Ls in the last group. The file will do the rest for you. Let me know if you have any questions, I hope this helps you and your league out this year!
Edit: Just to add, your can replace 1-14 in each data group with team names or player names to make it easier to identify. The sheet should accurately reflect each name/team across each graph.
Edit 2: there was a minor error with 12 and 14 team versions uploaded before 8/30 at 5pm CST. If you downloaded one of those copies, please redownload. 6 team is now available, 16 team will be coming when I have some free time.
I had to redo some things this year and rescale the file for team counts, so if things are broken, please let me know as soon as possible so I can fix it, I did some testing but I might have missed things!
