    RIP Desbreko 1988-2016

    Hey all, popping out of the ether to pay my respects to Desbreko. Desbreko was the moderator who asked me to become part of the staff long ago. I was so honored back then because it was Desbreko that was asking. Even back in '07 his name had weight and somewhat of a legend behind it. I remember Boo trying for the longest to get him on the OB Podcast and when he finally did I was on vacation, heh. My experience with Des is that he was always willing to lend a hand, or a screencap (or both) and was the silent observer in the chat. If I ever had a question on moderation or tech, Desbreko was the man I ran to. Desbreko also made a few of my Avatar/Banner sets! He was a kind heart and a keen mind. May he rest in peace. See you, Space Cowboy.

    Wut R U Dooing?

    Man, I feel bad sometimes that it'll be like.... 3-4 days and I don't log in. But anyways, since Shy is still here.... I'm still over in Germany for at least another year. Currently I'm in the middle of changing jobs (again) because the place where I was employed closed down (again). I sliced my finger up pretty bad recently:                                                               I was opening packages of meat and hacked my finger something nasty. Got a little bit of tendon. Two stitches later, I learned a valuable lesson: knives are sharp.  My girlfriend and I just celebrated our 1 year anniversary at the end of last month and we have a vacation planned to Edinburgh, Scotland next month.  I finished up my BA in Journalism and as soon as I get back to the US I'm gonna be looking for employment in my field. I'm not having too many high hopes for it, because I'm primarily interested in printed works and the industry is definitely trending towards digital content. While I'm being a more realistic about my job prospects, I'm not completely losing faith in getting a job in the industry.  A new hobby I'm trying to pick up is Free-running. For the longest time, I've been completely out of shape and not working due to BS excuses (work). As such I've balooned up quite a bit. But I'm kinda nervous about Free-Running because I'm hilariously  uncoordinated and clumsy. I'm not too flexible and I can't jump too high. But I saw a video of some guys doing free-running in their neighborhood and I felt compelled to at least try. I'm trying to grab a few other crazies to come run with me and hopefully we can all grow together as a free-running group. So wish me luck on that, guys! But it's good to hear from people. Feel free to add me on zee FB : /KoreyKore as I'm wayyyy more active on there.  
  4. Hey there Wakashi! :) Glad you enjoyed the show! Boo and I had an amazing time recording the show during it's heyday and we still joke every now and again about just pumping out new shows. Unfortunately the site isn't as active as it was back then and we have both kinda moved on in our personal lives.  BUT, we'd be more than happy to be guests on your show or lend our help in any way. I'll forward this to Boo and we'll be in contact soon! :)
  5. Congrats Chibs! Now I look for you to truly make your mark on the world. Few things about college: 1) Be open to trying new things, but don't be afraid to stand up for your own personal beliefs 2) Weird things are going to happen on campus. Sidewalk preachers, free hug groups, protests.  3) It's easy if you pay attention and show up to class. All those horror stories your teachers told you about college aren't true haha Have fun! I know I did :)
  6. Happy Valentine's day everynyan! I love you all. <3   
  7. Lots of my friends play League, but I never found the allure of games like that. Even games like Starcraft are just too tedious for me to spend hours on. But here's a funny meme I found. So that should soften things up right?

    New addition to the family

    Corgis are the most adorable little dogs ever. I have a couple of friends who have them and they're very intelligent and super easy to train. I assume since this little guy is 9 months old he's already housebroken. Don't be surprised if he goes in your place though. One thing about Corgis (and most herding dogs) is that you have to give them a lot of exercise and open spaces. If there's a dog park nearby, I'd suggest taking him to one. Or at least on a daily walk. I know you're pretty active, so maybe taking him on a job will keep him from getting fat haha.

    Westboro Church at it again...

    Actually [url="http://www.examiner.com/article/westboro-baptist-church-thwarted-newtown-conn-by-peaceful-supporters"]they have attempted to picket some of the funerals[/url], most notably the principal from Sandy Hook and were met with resistance by those who were supporting the families of this shooting. From what is said and what actually happened, there wasn't any actual protesting going on, but the group had announced they were going to attend the funeral. WBC has a habit of protesting at high-profile people's services such as Steve Jobs and Elizabeth Edwards. Also, if you follow any tech news at all, famous (and recently convicted) hacker "Cosmo the God" broke his parole to [url="http://sourcefednews.com/westboro-hacker-broke-probation/"]hack the Twitter accounts[/url] of two spokespeople for the WBC and allegedly remote recorded gay porn on one of their DVR's. Unfortunately he'll be getting jail time for that, but he definitely did a lot of good (in his own way) to help the people who are still grieving. Now, I agree 100% that their actions are heinous and very very insensitive and shouldn't be labeled under free speech. However, and this is the kicker in America, you have to prove that the speech incites immenent violence or retaliation against a group or individual. What makes this even worse is that the definitions of Hate Speech can vary greatly from state to state. While the WBC is very hateful in their protests, they are not telling people to gun down soldiers and homosexuals and whoever else they are protesting for. They are saying "God hates ____" and "Good, another dead ___. " Since God can't imminently strike down a person or harm them, then the speech has to be left alone. You see it all the time at college campuses. Sidewalk preacher told me once I was a fornicator for kissing my girlfriend in public and I wasn't married and I was going straight to hell. Did it fire me up? Yeah, but she had the right to say it and I had the right to walk away and get away from this horrible, hateful person. What happens though is that groups like this get media attention and it spreads their message involuntarily by simply acknowledging their existence Instead of forced goverment action, why not just simply ignore them until they go away on their own? Make the flame die out on it's own by not giving it any oxygen.

    HAPPY HALLOWEEN~!!!

    My friends and I went to the midnight opening for Skyfall. First time I've done that for a movie in a while. But I love James Bond movies and I've seen every one. But I was a lamer and didn't dress up. I'm not too big on dressing up for Halloween.
  12. Now he needs to end every-sentence with "Kupo!"
  13. [font=tahoma,geneva,sans-serif]Well I guess in some states you really have no choice but TO get married out of wedlock :/ I'm getting my wisdom teeth pulled on Friday. I think the doctors gave me too much drugs though. Perceset (SP?) AND Ibuprofen. I won't be able to feel my nose for several decades. [/font]

    I Forgot What You People Look Like (Image Heavy)

    I'll let Dragon Warrior know about this, Pumpkin :P I photobombed myself in this pic. See if you can find me [img]http://a6.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/420097_4558587887094_803442095_n.jpg[/img]

    I remember back OB when.....

    [color=#008080][font=tahoma, geneva, sans-serif]Hmm my first lonnnggg message I had was from Stephanie, back in the day. To give it a piece of perspective, it was when I was Sesshomarufan and she was callmegoddess09 (-_-). She had just missed the signups on one of my old 1v1 arena fights and I responded to her with a nice PM. And that turned into a multiple month, multiple message conversation that was the beginning of a friendship that's lasted over five years now. She's one of the first internet friends I've made and it's been awesome to watch her grow up and become the awesome woman she's become. I still haven't met her in person, but I hope to change that soon :) Some of my fondest OB memories include causing a bit of mischief with the various topics that would spring up in the Lounge that would be a bit of the "touchy stuff" kind of topics. It was nice seeing people get in a huff or people post just incoherent jibberish and hiding it behind five-star vocabulary. I'd love to break apart people's oh-so-carefully concocted posts with a bit of the ol' common sense. :) I only participated in a few RP's in the day, but I did always enjoyed anything done with Raiha or with Stephanie. I always felt I was the worst writer ever when I saw people's tomes of text they'd write haha. Nifty Fifty didn't go on this year because we simply haven't had the traffic to have that. But as far as I know, nothing was posted this year. Sad times, indeed.[/font][/color]

    OB Reunion?

    [font=tahoma,geneva,sans-serif]As far as I know, the maximum Skype Conversation participants is as much as you can stand to talk to. :P I'm all for Boo's idea. I'm sure he's down for a man(woman)hunt for these oldies as well.[/font]

    Gaming G4's Top 100 Games of All Time

    [font=tahoma,geneva,sans-serif][color=#008080]It's interesting to me here how they name specific games in the series (Gears 3, Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo, Halo 3...etc) instead of just mentioning the games that actually started those franchises. Gears 1 was the one that kickstarted it all and got the franchise rolling, how is 3 any different than that (besides that multiplayer is about a bazillion times better). And as much as I love Super Turbo, I think the ORIGINAL SFII game should have been on there. That's the game that got people in arcades playing fighters. That's the one that revolutionized the genre. ST didn't come out until years later. I am happy that Link to the Past was put above Ocarina of Time though. No one believes me when I say that LttP is a much more fun game. Sure OoT brought Link into 3D, but when you think of the scale of the adventure in LttP and the fact that you can come back to this game and still be wowed by it after years and years and years really speaks to it. For a SNES game, LttP had an enormous world to explore and so many little things to find ( I have yet to 100% grab everything in this game). It felt awesome and challenging and really is the highest point of the Zelda franchise.[/color][/font] [font=tahoma,geneva,sans-serif][color=#008080]No Donkey Kong Country makes me sad though. ;_;[/color][/font]

    Gaming E3 2012

    [left]I was so disappointed about the show this year. Microsoft and Nintendo totally dropped the ball this year. Microsoft for the second year in a row basically announced no exclusives besides Halo 4. Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 was a given, but that's multi-console so I don't know why Microsoft got to hog the announcement to themselves. Nintendo, as expected, talked about the WiiU and promoted their new Nintendoworld feature. But there wasn't anything really stellar. Overall this year was just a snooze fest for E3. All the games that I'm excited for coming out I've known about for a while and new trailers and stuff like that isn't really gonna push me over the edge to buying that title. E3, I am disappoint.

    Gaming E3 2012

    [color=#008080][font=tahoma, geneva, sans-serif][size=4]Definitely wanting to see the new Metal Gear game and hoping that the new Castlevania will be good. Kojima rarely misses, so I don't expect anything less than stellar on this project. [/size][/font][/color]

    WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM US?! D:

    [color=#008080][font=tahoma, geneva, sans-serif]You're more than welcome to start a fan-club for someone or something *hint hint* ;)[/font][/color]
  23. [color="#C0C0C0"][font="Lucida Console"]Hello folks! In an effort to continue making OB better, we need to hear from our members. What would you like to see from Otakuboards in the future? New skins? Features? Make your voices heard here. I'm still waiting for a green skin for OB. Or the return of a Geisha-like one. Also, some more fonts would be sweet. [/font][/color]

    Your Nuts

    [font=tahoma,geneva,sans-serif]For some reason I imagine the Schwann's foods guy becoming the Amazon foods person. Driving around the frozen food truck and stuff. But I love pecans. I put them in Pancakes, pies and in certain chocolate confections (chocolate covered pecans are amazing). Prailined too. OMG x-x[/font] [font=tahoma,geneva,sans-serif]I also love to snack on cashews if I'm up for something salty. Peanuts are hit and miss for me. I don't like the effort involved in picking off the shell, but then again I didn't like Planters peanuts that came out of a can. So I just end up being stupid and eating the peanut shell and all. Tasted pretty yummy >.>[/font] [font=tahoma,geneva,sans-serif]Something that isn't exactly a nut, but it's along those lines is Sunflower Kernels. I love those things to death. They're pretty awesome in salads and even by themselves if you're up for a more healthy alternative. Lightly salted ones are amazing. [/font]

    Who would you do?

    [font=tahoma,geneva,sans-serif]Looks like it carried over into adulthood :3[/font] [font=tahoma, geneva, sans-serif]I wanna add people to my list. But they're all gone and stuff now :([/font]
