    Discuss The Sleepers Underground

    [quote name='Raiha'][FONT=Times New Roman][COLOR=darkorchid]posting in a randomly paced story based largely on your own self interest. [/COLOR][/FONT][/quote] [FONT=Franklin Gothic Medium][COLOR=indigo]... sounds like something that should normally be avoided. But this, I would think, would be the exception. Having no idea how your previous effort went, I can't say much, but the idea sounds immensely fun. I'm interested to know more about the actual plot, or lack thereof, if that's more the point. What exactly would be going on?[/COLOR][/FONT]

    Super Powers.

    [quote name='Magus'][SIZE=1][COLOR=navy]Instant healing. Wouldn't have to worry too much about anything.[/COLOR][/SIZE][/quote] [FONT=Franklin Gothic Medium][COLOR=darkslateblue]But it would still hurt like a b****. The wounding, not the healing.[/COLOR][/FONT] [FONT=Franklin Gothic Medium][/FONT] [FONT=Franklin Gothic Medium][COLOR=darkslateblue]Invisibility would also be fun. Who wouldn't want to be able to roam around Harry Potter style? Perverts need not apply...[/COLOR][/FONT]

    Super Powers.

    [quote name='BBS'] With flight and underwater breathing I could explore like everywhere, which would be dandy.[/quote] [FONT=Franklin Gothic Medium][COLOR=darkslateblue]Technically, you'd need a super-dense body to survive the depths of the ocean, and lungs capable of breathing in the upper atmosphere. Just sayin'.[/COLOR][/FONT] [FONT=Franklin Gothic Medium][/FONT] [FONT=Franklin Gothic Medium][COLOR=darkslateblue]Flight is also one of my favorites. I'm fairly positive I would spend 90% of my free time flying and/or hovering if I had the ability.[/COLOR][/FONT]

    Music Your Favorite band

    [quote name='Nomurah!'][SIZE=1][COLOR=hotpink]On the contrary, the best band of all time is by far [B]the Beatles[/B]. [/COLOR][/SIZE][/quote] [FONT=Franklin Gothic Medium][COLOR=darkslateblue]Agreed. They seem to have appeared on several people's list, but I'm gonna say it again.[/COLOR][/FONT] [FONT=Franklin Gothic Medium][/FONT] [FONT=Franklin Gothic Medium][COLOR=darkslateblue][B]The Beatles[/B] = absolute favorite until the end of time.[/COLOR][/FONT] [FONT=Franklin Gothic Medium][/FONT] [FONT=Franklin Gothic Medium][COLOR=darkslateblue]Probably has something to do with the fact that my dad listened to them a lot. But as a friend of mine once said (and I'm paraphrasing this), "Everything the Beatles did they did better than everyone else. Even their worst album was freaking great."[/COLOR][/FONT] [FONT=Franklin Gothic Medium][/FONT] [FONT=Franklin Gothic Medium][COLOR=darkslateblue]As for more recent stuff, my general favorite would have to be [B]Tool[/B]. Pretentious? Certainly. Does it matter? Not in the least.[/COLOR][/FONT]

    Music What Are You Listening To?

    [FONT=Franklin Gothic Medium][COLOR=darkslateblue]Just today got the new (ok, it's a year old now) Metallica album [I]Death Magnetic[/I]. Never been a huge Metallica fan, but I have to admit it's pretty ****ing awesome. Currently listening to the track [I]The Judas Kiss[/I]. Good solid metal.[/COLOR][/FONT]

    Gaming Mass Effect 2

    [FONT=Franklin Gothic Medium][COLOR=darkslateblue]Mass Effect definitely isn't your every day RPG, but if you're going to get into it then you should definitely play the first one. While I'm sure ME2 will have some sort of plot recap, it's just not the same as playing through it for yourself.[/COLOR][/FONT] [FONT=Franklin Gothic Medium][/FONT] [FONT=Franklin Gothic Medium][COLOR=darkslateblue]I'm extremely excited for the second game. In particular, I can't wait to see the new species (and new examples of existing species) in action. From what I've seen, Bioware has taken steps to make the various species' physical traits more apparent. For example, one screenshot showed a Krogan with armor that showed his upper arms, suggesting that there actually is something underneath it other than a disembodied head. I'm hoping they will actually show more of the alien physique in this way. And for completely non-perverted reasons.[/COLOR][/FONT] [FONT=Franklin Gothic Medium][/FONT] [FONT=Franklin Gothic Medium][COLOR=darkslateblue]I like that they've improved the combat as well, though if the videos I've seen are any indication, your teammates are still about as intelligent as trained rocks.[/COLOR][/FONT]

    What do you know?

    [quote name='Gavin'][FONT=Verdana][SIZE=1][COLOR=black]The only letter which does not appear on the Periodic Table is the letter ?J?.[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT][/quote] [FONT=Franklin Gothic Medium][COLOR=darkslateblue]That makes me feel left out, as someone who's name begins with 'J'. Or should I feel special?[/COLOR][/FONT] [FONT=Franklin Gothic Medium][/FONT] [FONT=Franklin Gothic Medium][COLOR=darkslateblue]In 2001 Mamoru Oshii, director of such anime classics as Ghost in the Shell and Patlabor, teamed up with a Polish film studio to create the live-action sci-fi film [I]Avalon[/I]. The original language of the film was of course Polish, and it won several awards in film festivals throughout Europe.[/COLOR][/FONT] [FONT=Franklin Gothic Medium][/FONT] [FONT=Franklin Gothic Medium][COLOR=darkslateblue]Maybe that wasn't obscure enough. Whatever. If you want to see it, you might find it at Blockbuster. It's quite good.[/COLOR][/FONT]

    Anime Don't you hate it when ___

    [quote name='Cloud Strife']I hate it when you're watching a subbed anime and the person who subbed it doesn't know how to speak real english. "You die shall!" and other such mistakes are irritating.[/quote] [FONT=Franklin Gothic Medium][COLOR=darkslateblue]Even worse is when they intentionally screw with the subs. I remember some jack*** thought he was being funny with the subs in a Code Geass episode. I still don't know what was actually said in that scene...[/COLOR][/FONT]

    Christmas Trees!

    [quote name='chibi-master']But it's taking my family forever to get one this year. Too lazy, it seems. And I can't do anything about it. Saving Christmas is only for the movies.[/quote] [FONT=Franklin Gothic Medium][COLOR=darkslateblue]Same situation here. Not enough time and not enough will to actually get the thing out of the garage. Seems every year we get a little less willing to bother.[/COLOR][/FONT]

    Christmas Trees!

    [FONT=Franklin Gothic Medium][COLOR=navy]At my house we've been using the same (fake) tree since I was a kid. It's pretty nice, but a pain in the rear to put up. I'm not sure how familiar everyone is with life-size fake trees, but once it's standing, you have to unfold just about every individual branch. Most years my mother makes a big deal out of decorating it, especially with our really old 'baby' ornaments. Maybe my family is just weird, but their are particular ornaments that have a lot of meaning to her.[/COLOR][/FONT] [FONT=Franklin Gothic Medium][/FONT] [FONT=Franklin Gothic Medium][COLOR=navy]In any case, my favorite tree-related family tradition is definitely the hiding of the pickle. My grandparents have a pickle-shaped ornament that blends in rather well with the tree, and each year the challenge is on to find it before everyone else. We are pretty weird.[/COLOR][/FONT]

    Art A Triple Dose of Banner

    [FONT=Franklin Gothic Medium][COLOR=navy]After I finally obtained Photoshop again after a hard-drive crash, I felt compelled to make some new banner/avatar type things. And so I have. Three, in fact. Each is themed for a different anime and uses images exclusively from that anime. Most of the effects are done through simple layer blending, but I'm pretty satisfied with the results. What do you think?[/COLOR][/FONT] [FONT=Franklin Gothic Medium][COLOR=navy][strike]EDIT: Ok, so only the first one will show as an image in the post. Perhaps because it's an external link? If anyone knows, let me know.[/strike][/COLOR][/FONT] [IMG]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v460/Leto/EvaBanner-Shinji.jpg[/IMG] [IMG]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v460/Leto/EvaAvatar-Shinji.jpg[/IMG] [IMG]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v460/Leto/AkiraBanner-Yourself.jpg[/IMG] [IMG]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v460/Leto/AkiraAva01.jpg[/IMG] [IMG]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v460/Leto/BebopBanner01.jpg[/IMG] [IMG]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v460/Leto/BebopAva01.jpg[/IMG]

    [FONT="Franklin Gothic Medium"][COLOR="Navy"][strike]Dear mysterious advertiser,[/strike] [strike]Dear writer of ad[/strike] [CENTER][I]?What?s that formal greeting? should I use ?dear? at all??[/I][/CENTER] Dear Sir or Ma?am, [CENTER][I]?Isn?t it ?madam?? Oh well.?[/I][/CENTER] My name is Conner Holt, and I am very interested in the position advertised on the first of this month. I do have some questions about the exact nature of the work, but I am sure that will be sorted out in due time. I have long been interested in the paranormal and I admit that I am rather excited at the prospect of an organization with the resources to put serious effort into paranormal research. [strike] Ever since a particular incident a number years ago, my[/strike] [CENTER][I]?Definitely don?t need to tell them about that...?[/I][/CENTER] I am twenty-eight years old and have a bachelor?s degree in Applied Arts and Sciences, minors in Computer Science and Psychology. [CENTER][I]?Fat lot of good it did me??[/I][/CENTER] I have extensive experience using computers and can type at 49 words per minute. I worked for a time as a technical support agent, and so also have experience with answering phones. [strike] I don?t have much experience with interviewing people.[/strike] I also maintain a web log and have had accounts on various social networking sites in the past. [CENTER][I]?Why do they need that kind of thing anyway? Never heard of ?strange phenomena online,? whatever that?s supposed to mean.?[/I][/CENTER] My interest in the occult has grown significantly in the past several years, and I like to think that I have become somewhat knowledgeable on the subject. I am perfectly willing to work long hours, including weekends and nights if required. As requested, I have attached a photo of myself as well as a brief resume if you wish to take a look at it. [CENTER][I]?God, I hope this isn?t another bulls*** job? did I just say ?God?? Christ? augh!?[/I] ~~~[/CENTER] By the way, is the photo actually required or is it optional? And if it is required, I assume we don't have to use a [i]real[/i] photo, right?[/COLOR][/FONT]

    Anime Don't you hate it when ___

    [FONT=Franklin Gothic Medium][COLOR=navy]In the same vein as Magus' comment, I'm tired of an epic fight turning into a "final strike" scenario... you know what I mean. Two master swordsman staring each other down, sizing each other up and... [I]woosh, slash[/I], they fly by each other as if they passed through thin air. Wait for it... one collapses while the other stares stoically ahead. What's most painful about it is that it used to be a cool concept, until it was over-done. The only series I can forgive for doing this is Rurouni Kenshin.[/COLOR][/FONT] [FONT=Franklin Gothic Medium][COLOR=navy]I also hate it when (and this might also sound similar to previous posts...) the main character's love interest just happens to walk in on him/her (ok, usually [I]him[/I]) in a situation that looks perverted but isn't. How many romantic comedy series have used this now? Absurd.[/COLOR][/FONT]

    Request Avatar and Signature Request

    [FONT=Franklin Gothic Medium][COLOR=navy]Well, it's nothing fancy, but if you feel so inclined, you may use these. I realize the avatar has a white background, and if you'd rather have a darker background I can whip up a new one relatively quickly. Hope you enjoy.[/COLOR][/FONT]
