  1. [font="Times New Roman"][size="3"][color="#9932cc"]Lately it's been "Pins and Needles" by the Birthday Massacre. I can't remember when this album came out, but I've been thoroughly enjoying it. A nice break from the random synthpop Pandora hurls at me when I give it the least bit of leeway. [/color][/size][/font]
  2. [font="Times New Roman"][size="3"][color="#9932cc"]I saw this on base for like two dollars and didn't feel robbed at the end of it. My boyfriend however grudgingly admits it wasn't entirely a waste. He hates musicals though, but liked the horse. Did anyone else feel that the horse's character was more or less borrowed wholesale from the horse in Road to El Dorado? Maybe it's just me. But either way I thoroughly enjoyed the whole shebang, especially the part where she has a reptile for a pet. And when she first tries to escape from her mother and ends up crying one second and being ecstatic the next. That's totally believable, and of course way too funny. [/color][/size][/font]
  3. [quote name='Yukazi' timestamp='1303663732' post='706814'] Nobody will ever be as dynamic and cool as Nerdsy. â?¥[/quote] Except ... [b][i][i]MacGyver![/i][/i][/b] [img]http://gremlindog.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2008/11/macgyver11ic.jpg[/img] Anyway I'm back after about six months elsewhere, specifically in Illinois, getting my Navy on. More like the Navy getting on me. And then riding me like a pony. And beating me with mandatory events and training that were simultaneously agonizing, humiliating, and worthwhile. Yeah. Yay.
  4. It's raining, 40 degrees F, and I have to go stand watch for 4 hours in very painful shoes. I hate duty.

      I start that soon as well. I go into the Army Sept 6. I'm actually looking forward to it. ^^

  5. [font="Times New Roman"][size="3"][color="#9932cc"]Our instructor came to us lined up outside the classroom for marchin and told us the Commanding Officer of our base would be having some free time this morning to come do personnel inspections. After the collective sound of about 22 nervous sailors wetting themselves he then laughed and said that we were idiots. And also happy April Fools. I'm plotting his death as we speak. [/color][/size][/font]
  6. [font="Times New Roman"][size="3"][color="#9932cc"]My room mate, obnoxious jerk that he is, has purchased this game [finally] because he was too lazy to jump on the beta train. That being said, because he has a 'hearing' problem he plays with the sound all the way up. Is there, do you know, a way to get rid of the flavor text that is spewed every time he makes a single action? If I hear those idiot space marines say "you can count on me!" one more time, I may reformat his hard drive with vinegar and rubbing alcohol. [/color][/size][/font]
  7. [font="Times New Roman"][size="3"][color="#9932cc"] I recall being aggressively campaigned to regarding prop 8 by the homosexual lobby in a manner that was eventually ruled to be illegal. As they were two feet from the polling booths. This is what I remember when I think about Prop 8. Strangely, I wasn't marketed to at all from the opposing faction. Also, because I don't support state recognized marriage regardless of gender, I didn't vote on the matter at all. You may now begin hating me for my lack of interest in the foibles and generalized howling about the rights of gays, straights, and so on and so forth. One can only surmise that now that the right to "marry" is extended to people of all socially acceptable persuasions everyone will be tolerant and have absolutely no problem with it. In California. I am not for one convinced that this ruling will stand on it's own for very long, because it has yet to go to the federal level, and here's where the intellectuals try to tell me that the federal government can't interfere with the rulings of the state and blah blah blah blah blah but we all know it's going to happen anyway so why bother celebrating now. All of this is premature until the bolt from Mount Olympus [that'd be the Supreme Court for you unimaginative types] comes crashing down into our bedrooms. Then you can all either throw yet another party or slit your wrists, whichever works best for you. [/color][/size][/font]

    Get Sharp!

    [font="Times New Roman"][size="3"][color="#9932cc"]So "Get Sharp" released yesterday and now that I've had enough time to crank up my energy sucking subwoofers and blast them loud enough to register with old Russian spy satellites, I can safely say that I do enjoy this latest/newest/first actual album produced by these two insane morons. They're from the Bay Area for one, which is nice for me, I like supporting local bands. And they play at Popscene, which is a local venue I'd like to see survive into the future wherein I have enough money to go to actual concerts. They're available for download legally anyway, on iTunes, and I really do recommend it. Very high listenability and repeatability, as the 'sounds that annoy you to death' are not as present here as they are in other electropop style bands. "Very Busy People" was on the radios out here for a long time, and that's probably what turned me on [haha] to the band. As such my current favorite song is one that was featured at BFD 2010, a rather big local grouping of bands that had all the good musical talent of the Warped Tour and Burning Man, without the copious drugs and old people. Current favorite song by them: "Internet Killed The Video Star." And after spellchecking this entry, I can safely say that I'm gushing. Oh well. Hmph. [/color][/size][/font]

    Favorite Joker

    [font="Times New Roman"][size="3"][color="#9932cc"]As much as I enjoyed watching Jack Nicholson dancing with a drugged female on a rooftop, I don't think he was my favorite, aside from the fact that he just seemed a little too old to be a psychotic criminal. The ones who are insane don't usually last that long, at least to my mind. I know, picking Heath Ledger just makes me another squealing fangirl, but I did actually read some of the Batman comics. *gasp* And his rendition of the Joker really did seem closer to the portrayals of the Joker in the comics, and that is of course the motivation behind my choice. Oh right, and then there was his disappearing pencil trick. Classic. [/color][/size][/font]
  10. [quote name='Heaven's Cloud' date='24 July 2010 - 08:57 AM' timestamp='1279987026' post='697754'][color="indigo"]Anytime you can defeat a final boss in an RPG the first time makes the whole ending disappointing.[/color] [/quote] [font="Times New Roman"][size="3"][color="#9932cc"] Agreed. I found the more challenging boss was Lady Yunalesca. I had no idea what the zombie status effect did, and I didn't research before going in to fight her. Thus she cast megadeth...megadeath on my characters and that was the end of them and I threw my controller so hard I shattered a vase. On the other hand, you can make sure you don't easily defeat final bosses in RPGs if you have the option of simply not leveling up much. Unfortunately in Final Fantasy XII, I did virtually everything that could be done and was level 90 when I charged into battle with Lord Vayne and his...whatever it was. ...and he dropped faster than a sack of coal on Christmas morning. Alas. But on the other hand, he might not've been the 'Real' boss, if we can count Omega Weapon.[/color][/size][/font]
  11. [font="Times New Roman"][size="3"][color="#9932cc"]Primarily frost, with some arcane mixed in, just for giggles. And, it's on an RP server, so pretty much the only thing I do is run dungeons for fun. And I don't think it's nearly as weak as it should be. I was fire for the longest time and got really tired of doing almost no damage at all. Either I was doing something wrong with the talents or ...something. But I went from doing less damage than a petless hunter to the most. Blizzard [the spell] is my new best friend, even if it's a mana guzzler. [/color][/size][/font]
  12. [font="Times New Roman"][size="3"][color="#9932cc"]Oh good, there are others besides us three. I was worried. Of course soon I'll be weaned off wow for two months at a whack, so I'm not too worried about 'addiction' and whatnot. Besides, I can give it up for ...a few days anyway. *twitch* So I retooled my mage to be frost/arcane and suddenly it's doing more damage than I've ever seen it do. I'm a little worried that I spent all this time not doing much damage only to spend a cool 25g just to see my toon become god. What does this say? [/color][/size][/font]
  13. [quote name='Burori' date='23 July 2010 - 01:16 PM' timestamp='1279916176' post='697709'] as for badger moles I don't recall any earth bender persay walk around with one. Aside from Toph who learned how to bend from them. [/quote][font="Times New Roman"][size="3"][color="#9932cc"] In the Blind Bandit episode, ....was it 4 or 5? There was a badgermole and an earthbender cleaning the fighting platform. And...that's as far as I can go with that one. Although if I were an earth bender I would DEFINITELY walk around with a badgermole. All the time. And I would sing the SECRET TUNNEL! SECRET TUNNEL! song as much as humanly possible, to drive the people around me insane. Wait, I already do that.[/color][/size][/font]
  14. [quote name='NeedMoarRope' date='23 July 2010 - 12:33 PM' timestamp='1279913637' post='697707'] [font="Comic Sans MS"]Well, acording to Katara in the third book, the Waterbenders picked it up from the moon.[/font][/quote] [font="Times New Roman"][color="#9932cc"] [size="3"]I thought they ......damn. Maybe she'll just surf like the other waterbender who taught Avatar Kyoshi. I mean that could be cool. [/size] ...right?[/color][/font]
