even a collection for the Wii would be great.

Wii, PC, DS... heck, they could put those games out on the freaking iPhone at this point - I bet it's at least as powerful as the PCs we were all using when we played that stuff.  And you know what?  I bet they'd sell a TON.

OK, sorry I dragged us down into the rabbit hole.  I think any of us who have had rabbits have sad bunny dying stories.  If you've got them, you kind of understand, because aside from being really darned cute and makin' babies, kicking buckets seems to be a top activity for rabbits.  Also, it seems like so many of us who've had more than one got them from other people who didn't want them.[/depressing time]

Anywho, that first drawing is actually pretty great, MGF!  The other one's not so high-quality, but it cracks me up, which is good enough for me. :)

Oh, man - that makes me want a DSi.  I <3 Dr. Mario. :)  I also <3 Yoshi Cookie, but only on the SNES for some reason.

Hiking is probably my favorite outdoor hobby, and camping coincides with this one.

Seriously, Jimmy - check out geocaching.  If you already love hiking, it just adds another fun element to your hikes and can help you decide where to go.  (That last one's always the hardest part for me.)  Also, there are a TON of caches in Utah.

Not to slight you man, but I tend to listen more if the ladies think I look better.

I'd be surprised if you said differently. :D

Wow - looks like there's lots more crazy stuff for me to look forward to in the remaining books - thanks, Din!  Ashok Banker is apparently working on writing up the Mahabharata like he did with the Ramayana, so I'll have to keep an eye out for that when it comes out.

Reading
Knitting, sewing and other girly/creative things
Rabbits
Archery

Oh, my wife would love you.  She also reads, knits, sews (and does other girly/creative things), and loves rabbits.  We had 3, but... the inevitable thing that happens with pets happened to them, one each year for 3 years. :(

If you're interested in knitting sites online, PM me or something - I'll get some links from her to cool stuff and forward them.  If you're looking to sell more stuff, I have one word for you: amigurumi.  Can be very easy to make, and I bet you'd sell a freaking truckload at cons.

Wait, wait.  By frisbee golf do you mean Disc Golf?  As in the sport they play in the PDGA?  I love that shit, man.  I usually play for fun whenever I cross the border to Michigan.  My cousin works at a disc factory.  I wish my forearm throw would be better, though.  I can only sidearm the discs. :(

Yeah, I'm sure that's the same thing I mean.  I just haven't played enough to use the real name. :)  I have a set of basic discs at home, but haven't had a chance to really use them.


Oh - I forgot a hobby before!  Geocaching.  It's awesome.  Buy a GPS unit, or heck, use your phone if it's got GPS, then download coordinates for free from the web, and you're off treasure-hunting.  (http://www.geocaching.com/ is a great site for it.)  The caches you find vary from tiny containers with just enough room for a piece of paper to sign that you were there to big old buckets you can trade trinkets (and sometimes better stuff) in.  And with summer coming, we're just about to hit the best time of year for it.

Well, there's a dude trying to defeat a demon king, but he's a human named Rama.  Hanuman's from some other story.  Still, +1 for remembering something!

As a complete aside, an Indian developer just released the first Indian-developed game for the PS2, called Hanuman: Boy Warrior.  From what I can tell, "atrocious" might be too kind a description for the quality of that game.

I finished the first book this morning.  If you're a fantasy fan, I'd recommend these books.  Ashok Banker's version of them is pretty new, but the basis for the books is something like 5,000 years old.  I definitely saw shades of LotR a bunch of places.

Link didn't work for me. :(

I take a stick that's just under six feet long and I hit a piece of cylindrical rubber with it.

Six feet?  What are you playing - polo?


I read.  A lot.  I have a library of over 3000 books, and I blew through one that was 800 pages long over the past week, around work and sightseeing stuff.

I love listening to music, but haven't been able to really do any singing (my forte) since I started working in a travelling job.

I used to love racquetball... but haven't played much since college.  Oh, and Ultimate Frisbee is awesome - but I haven't played that in a long time either.  Sketch, have you tried Frisbee Golf?  If you're accurate with a frisbee, you might enjoy it.  (Also, have you seen the movie That Thing You Do?  Because the main character's nickname is Sketch, and he's a cool guy.)

Congrats, man.  The change looks good on you. :)

(Not in a gay way
Just wanna say hey, you're lookin' OK mate...)
I <3 Flight of the Conchords

I thought a tree wouldn't be any more off topic than amigurumi, so I thought it would be okay. Sorry.

Oh, so now I'm the troublemaker? ;)

You know, to be fair, the title "community photo thread" could just as easily be interpreted as "photos by the community" as it could "photos of the community..."

OK, I admit it - now I am just trying to stir up trouble.
1993  Media / Brush and Quill / Re: Book Thread Continued on: April 17, 2009, 11:56:04 PM
I'm in India, and wanted to get something local to read.  I picked up a book by a guy named Ashok Banker that was the first in the Ramayana series... then found out that the Ramayana is a (or the) holy book for Hinduism.  So that's cool.  Anyway, as an avid reader of fantasy, I love the way he's written the book, and as an outsider, I think he's done a really good job of explaining most uniquely Indian concepts/words.  I found out that the US edition has a glossary at the end, which might have come in handy from time to time, but I ended up buying all of the books here because they're cheap, they're hardback, and they're crazy bright colors - the first book is like fluorescent pink. :D
1994  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Whats the best DS puzzle game? on: April 17, 2009, 11:38:09 PM
Professor Layton, maybe?

I liked Meteos and Picross quite a bit as well, and Puzzle Quest, but it's a puzzle/rpg.

Oh, and I hear they're working on something called Picross 3D...
1995  Media / Brush and Quill / Re: Book Thread Continued on: April 11, 2009, 12:19:01 AM
I started Goodkind's "Wizards First Rule". I have a LOT of reading ahead of me:p

Enjoy it; the first one is the good one. :P

As for me, I'm reading "The Stand" by some hack.  I thought I had read this before, but if I have I've forgotten it completely.

Yeah, I hear the series just devolves into S&M after not too long.  First book's still the only one I've read.

And I <3 The Stand.  I prefer the original version to the extended version, though.  There's one extra scene that kind of scarred me for life...
