    If I cut off your arms, and I cut off your legs ... Would you still love me anyway?
  1. A little bird brought this to my attention so I figured I'd rise from the ashes to offer my condolences. I'm not particularly good at empathy and expressing feeling and all that good stuff, but when I was active on this forum I definitely considered Desbreko a friend and was saddened to hear about his struggles and passing. It's probably been over a decade since we've interacted at all, but I can still remember what he looked like (at least back then). Not too sure what else to say. He will be missed, but never forgotten. I guess my presence here, if nothing else, is proof of that.
  2. So a happy birthday message from CaNz brought me back here. I'm an OB Superstar apparently, and honestly it feels pretty great! The weather up here is excellent.

    [center][b][size=5][color=#B22222]TRAILER IS GORY.[/color][/size][/b][/center] [center][b][size=5][color=#B22222]BE WARNED.[/color][/size][/b][/center] [center][media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ceBXUyuv4Q0[/media][/center] [color=#008000]This trailer was released about a week ago, and a friend of mine brought it to my attention today as he knew I'm a big fan of the original movies. After watching the trailer and doing a bit of reading on the movie, I have to say I'm pretty hopeful. Both Sam Raimi (creator of the original movie) and Bruce Campbell (lead actor in the original movie) are on board as producers, so we know it's not just some faceless Hollywood company who bought the rights to it and is doing whatever they want with it. It's not using the same characters from the original movie, which to me is a huge plus because there's no way anyone could live up to the legend that Ash (Bruce Campbell's character) became.[/color] [color=#008000]All in all I can tell that this movie isn't trying to be the original [i]Evil Dead[/i], but instead is going to be what [i]Evil Dead[/i] could have been if it had all the technology and budget big fims have today. A lot of people associate [i]Evil Dead[/i] with the sort of slapstick horror-comedy that the latter movies ([i]Evil Dead II[/i] and [i]Army of Darkness[/i]) fell into, but lets not forget that the original film was actually trying to be serious, grisly horror and managed it really well for what it was. There will be no CGI used in the making of the movie, so we can expect some impressive make-up work, props, and smoke-and-mirrors.[/color] [color=#008000]So as a fan of the original trilogy, I expect this movie to please me in the same way that I, as a fan of the [i]Planet of the Apes[/i] franchise, was pleased with the re-imagining that was [i]Rise of the Planet of the Apes[/i] in 2011.[/color]

  5. I don't care what this crossword says, "In (a pet)" is not a real phrase; synonymous with "miffed." Even if "pet" is short for "petulant." No one has ever used that phrase in their life.

      Not surprisingly, when I finally understood what the phrase was supposed to mean, I figured it was something an uppity Englishman would say.

    [color="#006400"]I'm a few dungeons into this game at the moment and I want to say one thing that is standing out to me is Link's right-handedness, lol. Being a lefty, I'm finding it a little awkward at times to swing properly. I can't remember if he was right-handed in Twilight Princess, though Wiki says he was. Perhaps it wasn't as noticeable though because TP was a lot more hack'n'slash than Skyward Sword is. There wasn't a lot of technique in killing monsters, and what technique existed was in those special moves you learned which didn't favor a dominant hand. But with the split second basic slashes some enemies require, I'm feeling a slight delay and disconnect between realizing what action I need to take and knowing I have to do the reverse action in order for Link to do it. I don't understand why they can't create a player option to switch the dominant hand of Link. Or maybe I should go see if Flanders has a copy of this game at the Leftorium.[/color]

  8. In leiu of hot sauce, I loaded my macaroni with chili powder and crushed red pepper. Just as good, if not better. 8)

  9. Its a bit silly I guess, but its hard to find words that rhyme with up.

  10. I would say I am, but the metaphor just seemed silly to me. :P

  11. You aren't very romantic, are you? n_n;;

  12. Bring 'x' quarts of water to a boil. Add salt to taste ... am I to understand they want us to taste test boiling water?

  13. I at long last feel motivated to try and grow a legit beard. It'll be difficult because my genes aren't the best, but what you call a beard is now what I call my Man Garden.

  14. You know you need to take a break from Minecraft when you start imagining the world in blocks.

  15. I officially just had my first Doctor Who-related outburst. ._.
