Any of you guys check out The Punisher?  I still have three episodes to go, so I canít say for certain, but I think this may be my new favorite of the Marvel series.  Maybe tied with Luke Cage.  They keep knocking it out of the park with these shows.

We just finished the series a few minutes ago, it was really good. I still think Jessica Jones is my favorite so far. I was really kinda surprised to not see Claire pop up in it at some point.

really getting into heroes v villians.

the games where you get a team that sticks together are great.
That's my #1 tip for anyone getting into HvV.

Besides that , learn to play defensive.
It's easy at first to think lightsaber spam will win any fight, but learning to use block, dodge, and roll are really the keys to victory.

Especially for non-saber users you need to learn to time dodges and rolls to maintain safe spacing for counter attacks.
MOst of these characters like Chewy it is also very important to time your stun attack they usually have to gain an advantage vs saber weilders in CQC.

FOr saber  players blocking is very powerful. i believe you can blook all force powers and all melee strikes. only things like maul/vader's throw and Rey's charge can't be blocked i believe. i believe all saber toons can block blasters as well.
Dodging is also fantastic if you can anticipate gap closers and the like. 
oh, and Maul is the exception to alot of those rules- he cannot block, but only dodge to compensate and balance for his high mobility.
ps- yoda can block blasters but not reflect them, tho apprently he can a little during his dash attack.

EMperor is the only toon i'm still not 100% sure about. HE also is considered slightly underpowered ATM and is first in line to be buffed apparently.
AFAIK he can block force powers and blasters but has to dodge sabers...
His best survival asset besides his dodge is his jump. Like many other toons high jumping is very key for good positioning, fleeing or setting up attacks.

Well, that about covers it. hope anyone reading this and playing the game it helps a bit.
Here's a nice clip with VADER that exhibits alot of the defensive tactics i mentioned. Enjoy!

On PHISH Tour / Re: 12, 13, 20 years ago we were .....

11.23.97
really gets my pick for most underated phish show i saw.
still stands as my favorite version of Bathtub, and i don't think this 2nd set gets the recognition it deserves.
there was some obvious held over energy from hampton.
Trey was in full on Rock God mode.
i remember August commmenting once it was just alot of wanking off, but i've listened to these tapes a million times and i have to disagree. i see it as more full on hose for the better part of an hour.
 We sold margaritas in the lot and ended up getting really drunk.
The onsalught of that Bathtub DWD took some major endurance to withstand and defintiely left some faces melted.
i also have always really enjoyed the FLuffhead from teh 1st set. has a great peak jam.
