Bleh I tried typing out the oil of cloves story for you but you know what, it just doesn't pack the same sense of epic failness as when Dios tells it himself.

Hey Dios give us an encore, for old times sake? :^D

p.s. Dezo I tried SO HARD to forget ever reading that story about Dios' feat of flexibility... that's one visual that really needs to stay in the dark... xD

Which reminds me, of all the internet horrors and WTF things I've exposed to, RPGfan was responsible for atleast half of it.
^ Yes, Tomara. Same here.  Seriously, I think Dezo of all people was responsible for making me realize there were, in fact, people who really practice bestiality in the world, with one random link to some guy having sex with a dolphin...

Hmm I would just go back & look for older stuff if there are no recent writers up to your standards, sometimes I find unexpected gems in the dollar pile at the Strand.  Like Tanith Lee's Birthgrave, it was published in the 70's & I picked it up by chance; it was not bad at all, leaps & bounds better than most of the new stuff I see in bookstores.  Umm I also re-read Anne McCaffrey's Harper Hall & Dragonriders trilogies for the tenth times =P Still good.  Nothing's really epic on Martin's scale though.. I think Zelazny kinda reaches high with his Amber Chronicles, and the first few books definitely didn't disappoint, but personally I thought the later books fell short.

Umm and... You know Brian Jacques?  The one with the mice & furry little creatures on his covers.  Yeah I didn't touch his books for a long time bc I'm not really into animal fiction, but I finally caved & picked up Redwall.  It's really very good u know.  If u wanna give that a shot.

Cryptonomicon by Neal Stephenson.  Big doorstopper of a paperback but it was pretty cool.  It has that different POV style & it follows a series of different characters from different times- half the story's in like 1980's-ish with a couple of techie guys, and the other half's set in like Vietnam War-ish times following this average joe-ish soldier.  I get really into good characters and that soldier was awesome.

Oo I read Persepolis also, u should check out the sequel Persepolis 2, it's just as good.

Blankets is a good graphic novel also.  Next I wanna belatedly check out Maus.

I remember something about... oil of cloves was it?  :DDD  Heh maybe that was in IRC but that particular episode is something I will forever associate with rpgfan :)

I think I also remember some incredibly gory RP threads involving gross things being done with skulls.  I was never quite the same after reading those fanfics.  Thanks guys.

Raw shark?  You know where raw shark is???

Heehee I just read the graphic novel, it was aaaaaaawesome!!  But... yea the big question is, how well can they really translate that to a film?  The visuals in the trailer were pretty cool-looking, as I would expect from the director of 300... so it'll probably do well even if everything else falls flat, like 300.  I know I'm most def gonna be watchin it.  :3

I'll tell Galactic to drop by~ :D  I remember this was the second internet forum I ever joined, & I was kinda intimidated cos I wasn't really into games back then, more of an anime person. But there were some really funny discussions that went on, in IRC too, so I kept comin back...  Yea I really liked General Mortars, his art was fantastic!  Anyway I think I was always kind of a lurker rather than a participant but it's always fun watching the antics that go on here...

I haven't drawn anything in a while cos I was so caught up with WoWing, but I finally bought a new sketchbook & picked up my pencil again... to draw about WoW of course.  :D

This is me in bear form with my cute Children's Week pet Peanut:

And this is my tribute to Bill Watterson's Calvin & Hobbes strip, with my gnome warlock friend & me in tree form:

It's been a while since I visited these boards also.  Anyway, I'm in Mal'Ganis, Killydruid if any of you decide to come over & say hi.  I mostly just PVE & my guild's currently starting SSC.

Oooh yea I saw this on Youtube.  It said in the description that the snake was de-fanged... hence the playing with the baby.  Still disturbing though, and yea! that is one ballsy baby!
14  The Rest / General Discussions / Game Philosophy Topic of the Week: Keyboards vs. Gamepads on: May 10, 2007, 07:30:05 AM
Different controls for different play styles.

One thing I'd mention that you can do with keyboards is chat with other players.  I play an MMO & this is a big part of enjoying the game for me.  And right, like Eusis said, you wouldn't need a feel for the keys because 1. Most people have a keyboard's layout memorized and 2. Most games I think allow you to assign functions to keys yourself, so you can put them as you'd prefer.

Hey there hottie! Your smoldering gaze... makes me wanna... git nekkid!!  :D J/k~ Nice pic John.  CluelessWonder: Gorgeous! Where are you?  Looks like some place I wanna be!  LOL @ Neal, you sexy bass-playing roaring beast, you!  Funny vids.

I also took a Youtube video this weekend, goofing off with my friend: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jfXs4BO_81Y  We were gonna strip down to more scanty clothing but my friend had a wardrobe malfunction and Youtube wouldn't like that!  So it's just 30 seconds of fully-clad dorkiness. xD
