  1. Hmmm. All these folks. This sounds fun. I'll be up for it. It's been, what, 13 years since I've joined? I never really ventured too far outside of the Art area, but I always enjoyed spending my afternoons and evenings with a lot of you folks.
  2. Hm. I just had my 11 year anniversary back in July. I'm rarely ever around any more, and hadn't even seen the new boards until just today. I stop by every now and again to check up on the place where I spent so much time years ago. Mostly lurking because I have very little to nothing to say. lol. It seems the activity around this place is very low now-a-days, and the place seems to have downsized considerably. Ah well, just figured I'd through a cent or two into the hat and say hello to anyone who remembers me. :)

  4. I drink... I wouldn't say regularly, but enough to not be just an "occasional drinker". I drink ( but don't particularly prefer ) wine, dark liquor and light liquor all the same. My drinking is more of a curiosity type of deal. The past couple years my best friend and I have tried different types of liquor, different ways. Why? Because having a couple drinks while playing a game, or watching a movie, or just hanging out can "chill" everyone down to a level of tension that we can all withstand. Between work and home life, everyone gets a little too stressed for their own good. Everyone has their own ways of coming down. In fact, I was at the bar last night. To drink? Not really. I went to see my friend's sister's band play. We were there for about three hours. After about two, I bought one beer. Then I bought another 45 minutes later. And that was it. Now, do we over drink? Sometimes. Are we ever irresponsible? No. Do we ever drive a vehicle after drinking? No. Do we ever drink to an extent where it's dangerous to our health or the physical/emotional well being of others? No. Drinking is all about choices, if you ask me. My choice is to drink. Not everyday. Not even every four or five days. But I do. Does that make me a bad/lesser person?

  6. Right now: Between the Buried and Me - Prequel to the Sequel Between the Buried and Me - More of Myself to Kill
  7. If anyone wants to play, I'm playing[B] Modern Warfare 2[/B] and[B] Rock Band 2[/B] right now for the Xbox 360. I have an assortment of other games but this is what I play most as of right now. :) Add me!
  8. Here's mine. :) I had another wall up a bit ago, but found this one a bit funnier. :P My desktop is a bit disorganized at the moment though, I've been real lazy with the cleanliness as of late, lol.

  9. [SIZE="1"]lol, I keep randomly coming back whenever there's a "remember back then" thread. I'm surprised my account still works.... Let's see if anyone actually remembers me. ;) :D [B]Nomad / NomadWandering[/B] [B]Who[/B]: I've been a member since... July 14, 2002. Never been a mod. Always a lurker. :) [B]Where[/B]: Still living in the same house I live in today. Living in Indianapolis, Indiana. Still stuck here, yessir. :P [B]What[/B]: Currently I'm working in a meat department at Kroger. I've finished my Associates for Computer Aided Drafting and Design and I'm saving up money so I can get a survivable car and an apartment. Back then I was in... middle school I believe. Man... [B]When [i.e. Back Then][/B]: I joined for the Art Studio and to discuss my love of DB/Z/GT. OB has seen me progress through using WebTV/MSNTV, a dial up desktop, two other desktops and now a laptop, as well as progressing through programs from Ulead, onwards to finally actually getting a copy of Adobe Photoshop then Illustrator and beyond. I spent most of my time in the Art forum but another portion was my "teen angst" poetry that makes even myself laugh now. And the rest of the time I spent drooling over how awesome DB/Z/GT was (and I still do that mind you :P). [B]Why[/B]: I came for the forums discussed above. I've since (since as in after going through two computer failures) been VERY scarce around here. It's nothing personal to anyone of the members, it's just my life has me moving in another direction. I always come back for a week or two, but eventually I disappear off the radar again just to return three months down the line. Most of the time it's just lurking without logging in to see what's going on in the Art Studio, but every now and then I find a topic that interests me and I have to stay to see it through. I'd like to stay this time for a decent amount of time before I vanish again, but only time will tell. One thing's for certain though: I've always loved it here at the OB, and I always will. It's one of the biggest reasons why I started to delve deeper into sigs and wallpapers and computer design in general. [B]Favorite things about the OB[/B]: -Tell you the truth, I loved everything about the OB, it's hard to pick just a few things.[/SIZE]

  11. [SIZE="1"]Currently I'm playing [B]Team Fortress 2[/B] for the PC. This weekend sees the release of the Sniper vs Spy update for the game and Valve has given everyone the chance to play the game absolutely free until Sunday night. The funny thing is I randomly thought of logging onto Valve's website and purchasing TF2 just because I love the game so much and when I got there, to my surprise they had just announce they were doing their free weekend. And to top it all off, during the weekend they cut the price in half so I'm definitely buying it now, lol.[/SIZE]
  12. [SIZE="1"][B][I]Xbox 360[/I][/B]: Jenkins W A [url=http://profile.mygamercard.net/Jenkins+W+A][img]http://card.mygamercard.net/marble/green/Jenkins+W+A.png[/img][/url] I own and actively play Rock Band 2, Guitar Hero: Metallica and Call of Duty 4. I own and would be willing to play Beautiful Katamari, Gears of War (the first one), Halo 3, Halo Wars and the Orange Box. Currently 1000/1000 on Rock Band 2, Platinum guitarist and bassist. Can play a good deal on expert drums. Medium to hard vocals if the need arises. GH: Metallica, 800(something)/1000, expert bass and guitar, hard to expert drums (with Rock Band 2 drums lol) and medium vocals. I do [B][I]not[/I][/B] care what difficulty you play on, just play on something comfortable and let's have fun! CoD4 I'm a level 48 if I remember correct in my 7th prestige I believe. Same as above, don't care if you're a newb, noob or an experienced player, I'm all for playing just for the fun of it. [B][I]WoW[/I][/B]: Name: Munchyz Server: Aggramar Alliance: Horde Class: Druid Race: Tauren I'm open for friend requests and invites from anyone at anytime. In fact, I encourage everyone to randomly send me a request, lol, you can never have too many friends, right?[/SIZE]
  13. [quote name='Boo'][size=1]If they are going to pull through with it, they should at least use zeroes for O's.[/size][/QUOTE] [SIZE="1"]I second this notion.[/SIZE] [quote name='Lrb'][FONT="Tahoma"][COLOR="DimGray"] Strictly speaking video games, a noob or "newbie" is someone that's either new to the game or is so bad that they seem like they are new to the game. A player that is [i]actually[/i] new to the game can still be a noob, but if they aren't stupid (because noob really is meant to be an insult) they're just a lowbie (low level newbie).[/COLOR][/FONT][/QUOTE] [SIZE="1"]It's always been shown that being a newb is perfectly acceptable, however, being a noob (or n00b) is highly unacceptable. Newb, being short for newbie, as you've stated, and n00b being someone who plays like a newbie. Not trying to argue or anything, that's just the context that I've always seen it given in and how I've seen it come across. I already use the word regularly in my group of friends, so it wouldn't make too much difference if it was added or not. It's not like we don't already have an array of miscellaneous other words that aren't actually [I]words[/I]. Mostly gained from flubbed versions of insults and random movies you've probably never seen, let alone heard of. Now I feel like a nerd. Thank you.[/SIZE]
  14. [quote name='Mr. Maul'][FONT=Verdana][SIZE=1][COLOR=DimGray]I haven't seen[B] [REC][/B] yet, but I have seen [B]Quarantine[/B]. It was scary as hell.[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT][/QUOTE] [SIZE="1"]If you don't mind subtitles (of course you don't mind, right?) then I believe it is much better than it's American counterpart.

  15. [quote name='Zen'][color=royalblue][size=1] Hurray for starting new habits! High five for being a bad influence![/color][/size][/QUOTE] [SIZE="1"]*high five*[/SIZE] [quote name='Pumpkin'][FONT="century gothic"][size=1] Oh...and drugs are bad. Hooka is better. [/size][/FONT][/QUOTE] [SIZE="1"]Hookah is much better indeed! I love a nice bowl and some music to just relax with. :D I love Snus, but I've also gotten to quite like Camel's Orbs and their Crush. Orbs are satisfying for those lazy chewers who dislike spitting, or in the case of Snus, discarding your pouch. lol. And Crush is a nice Camel with the oh-so-satisfying taste of Menthol. :D:D Bad, bad influences. Indeed![/SIZE]
  16. [quote name='Allamorph'][FONT=Arial]I have a feeling I'll be watching this one myself soon. I point to [COLOR="DarkRed"]Raiha[/COLOR] for getting "Zydrate Anatomy" stuck in my head for a week. Incidentally, Verdana is the default font, [COLOR="DarkRed"]Nomad[/COLOR], so . . . maybe you just wanted to be specific? :p[/QUOTE] [SIZE="1"]Heh, I guess it's just a force of habit that'll take some time getting used to. I've (almost) always coded my posts with Verdana. :D The song that I get stuck in my head every time is "Night Surgeon". lol Anyway, right now I'm listening to... Actually, I'm listening to Night Surgeon now, lol, just because I want to hear the song again.[/SIZE]
  17. [SIZE="1"][FONT="Verdana"]Well, I've currently watched two movies that are on that line where you either hate them or love them. And they're both quite... unique, I guess you could say. The first being [B][REC][/B] and the other being [B]Repo! The Genetic Opera[/B]. They remade [REC] a little while back to be released in America under the title [B]Quarantine[/B], if you remember the movie release. The re-release was good, and I enjoyed it almost as I enjoyed the original. The original is in Spanish with English dubbing. Repo! is a musical stage production gone to the big screen. They've been talking about making a movie out of this show for years, but have only recently done so and released the movie. It had a terrible theatrical release and was quickly sent straight to DVD. Both of these movies I'm obsessed with. I've been waiting for Repo! almost since their announcement of their intentions on making a movie (before I've just seen story and pictures and heard some music from the play. Sadly, I've not had the opportunity to partake in viewing said show), and [REC] was a random "zombie" movie a friend had me watch one day a couple years ago. [IMG]http://img411.imageshack.us/img411/5187/movieswatching.jpg[/IMG] [B]Repo! The Genetic Opera[/B]: In the year 2056 - the not so distant future - an epidemic of organ failures devastates the planet. Out of the tragedy, a savior emerges: GeneCo, a biotech company that offers organ transplants, for a price. Those who miss their payments are scheduled for repossession and hunted by villainous Repo Men. In a world where surgery addicts are hooked on painkilling drugs and murder is sanctioned by law, a sheltered young girl searches for the cure to her own rare disease as well as information about her family's mysterious history. After being sucked into the haunting world of GeneCo, she is unable to turn back, as all of her questions will be answered at the wildly anticipated spectacular event: The Genetic Opera. (imdb.com) [B][REC][/B]: The film follows a Spanish late-night television reporter,√Āngela Vidal, through the lens of her cameraman, Pablo. During one report of the happenings in a local fire station in Barcelona, the duo follow a team of firefighters who get a call from an apartment building nearby about a trapped woman. When they arrive, they find the apartment's residents huddled in the lobby. They go upstairs to find a woman who is obviously distressed. What follows is a night that none of them will ever forget.

  18. [SIZE="1"][FONT="Verdana"][quote name='Chaos']Eh. Ever since Dave Williams died the band just nosedived, in my opinion. His voice was a perfect match for their music style and tonality, and they...just aren't the same. I'd say try-before-you-buy, definitely.[/QUOTE] Definitely. Have you heard the redone version of Bodies with the new singer. Bleck! It's absolutely horrid. Dave will always be the voice of Drowning Pool. And Sinner is a great album. Anyway, I'm listening to a movie. But it counts because it's musically inclined. It's [B]Repo! The Genetic Opera[/B].[/FONT][/SIZE]
  19. [SIZE="1"][FONT="Verdana"]I've never used GIMP before but I have heard a lot of good things about it, especially (and mostly) from newer users to graphic manipulators. I started with MS Paint in my earliest days (of computer graphics, I started with pencil, pen, etc before). Then shortly after I found a program that came with my computer that gave a larger allowance for manipulation amongst my projects. That was the same for a long while (as you can tell if you ever get the chance to find my old threads), until I got a hold of Photoshop 7.0. Then it progressed to Photoshop CS, CS2 and now CS3. That's not including the various versions of Illustrator I've had. Now, I'm not saying you should do anything illegal, but there's always a way to get what you want out of the internet. But I would suggest going the GIMP route or paying out a bit of money for an older version of Photoshop or the like. I'm sure they aren't as expensive as they used to be. :D[/FONT][/SIZE]
  20. [SIZE="1"][FONT="Verdana"]For a pack of Newport or Natural American's I see anywhere from $5-6 bucks. For a pack of Djarum I'm shelling out like $7. Then again, it doesn't matter much to me because I'm not a heavy smoker, but a random one, as in, if I get the chance I will... or I won't... it's random! See? But tobacco for our Hookah, that's a different story. It's been the same since I can remember. And that stuff lasts. :D Never tire of it.[/FONT][/SIZE]
  21. [quote name='Dragon Warrior'][size=1]I actually think this place has changed a ton. I don't know about you guys, but it doesn't feel the same to me, and I'm one of the oldest members here amongst a few of you.[/size][/QUOTE] [SIZE="1"][FONT="Verdana"] This is true. Then again, that's coming from an infrequenter... yes, I made that word up. But just about everything has changed since my time here at OB. But it is good to see that it's still thriving (in some sense of the word) and providing OB goodness to newer generations. (Wow, the way that sounded makes it seem like we've been here for decades, lol. Just meant it as newer waves of people coming in. :D)[/FONT][/SIZE]
  22. [SIZE="1"][FONT="Verdana"][B]The Devil You Know[/B] (Album) - [I]Heaven and Hell[/I][/FONT][/SIZE]
  23. [SIZE="1"][FONT="Verdana"]Previously I was listening to [B][I]Third Stone From The Sun[/I][/B] by [B]Jimi Hendrix[/B]. Now I'm listening to the ticking and working of my external hard drive and my laptop. I'm transferring all of the music I have on my laptop to my external for safe keeping. :D But once that's done I'll probably listen to some [B]MC Frontalot[/B]. lol.[/FONT][/SIZE]
  24. [SIZE="1"][FONT="Verdana"]The worst movie I have ever seen; worst adaptation I've ever seen. There's just too much to complain about in this movie. Way too much. I'm just glad I didn't pay to go see it, I had my friend pay. Ha! Wait... I still watched it... dang. For one thing (story changes aside, I know why they had to change and I don't mind story changes TOO much), everything was just wrong... lmao. And did Shenlong not look something like Falcor, just without hair and more dragonlike? I mean, come on... Just... so much disappointment... just so much... hate for the movie industry lmao.[/FONT][/SIZE]
  25. [SIZE="1"][FONT="Verdana"]The two stupidest movies I've seen to date have to be [B]The Invisible[/B] and [B]Step Brothers[/B]. Both movies were just horrid and the one that wasn't supposed to be funny was and the one that was supposed to be funny just wasn't. [B]The Invisible[/B] was one of the worst $9 I've ever spent in my life. I mean, the trailer made it seem interesting and everyone talked about it like it was going to be awesome, but come viewing time, it just sucked, massively. [B]Step Brothers[/B]... dumb, and not funny. Period. Now the dumbest movie I've seen that I actually liked has to be Hot Rod. And I only "like" the movie because it's the type of stupid, random humor me and my friends enjoy. I mean the random "Cool beans" remix in the middle of the movie combined with lines/scenes like "This is my hat now, totally my hat" just had me laughing. But the thing is, neither is really that funny... at all, it's just stupid, but I like that. :D[/FONT][/SIZE]
