And when you think about it, when times are tough, it's when you want some escapism.

If you hadn't already said it, this is exactly what I was going to say.

Why am I not surprised? Oh, yea, all the cops in this state are pricks.

Wait... what did the cops do wrong?  As far as I can tell, some guy made a joke about mustard, some other guy pulled a gun on him, and later the gun guy got arrested for doing something he surely should have known was not OK.

The mustard joke was kinda stupid, given how old those commercials are, but pulling a gun on the joker was far more stupid.  Even if you love guns, I hope you can agree that's not what they're for.

(I am relieved to see the gun guy's name in this article, though - when I first heard about this, I went "tell me that wasn't my brother...")

Actually, that phrase has been around for a REALLY long time.  I've been hearing it my whole life, but it took a Google search today for me to discover that it's been around since at least the 3rd century BC.

Because I'm too lazy to find a good source, here's a Wikipedia page:

Edit: I wasn't going to say it, but

I assumed it was a WoW reference when I heard it in Batman.

is likely to be the most depressing thing I read all week.  I'm taking solace in the fact that you figured that couldn't be right and wondered where it really came from. (So, you know, if I misinterpreted the rest of your post, don't tell me.)

I agree.  There were a number of times in that game where I truly got spooked so bad I jumped out of my chair.

Also, that avatar is taken, Om3ga. ;)

If that doesn't count then, well, I've shoveled shit for 20 years of my 23 year life thanks to always having dogs, cows, and horses. I'm a good shit shoveler.

Ever seen the movie Mystery Men?  (One of the main characters is The Shoveler, whose super power is that he's really good at shoveling.)

That, and Pluto Relinquish is a retarded song:


Wow.  It's difficult for me to believe that anyone can actually move their feet that fast.

The first thing that came to my mind when I read that page was that this article is as close as said article's author has gotten to breasts.

It's not great literature, I know, but I read a lot of fantasy books, and I think that pretty often as I read them.  Robert Jordan was the worst - it feels like every time his female characters are alone, they end up topless.  Then there's Piers Anthony and his obsession with panties...

Anyway, here's a classic for anyone who hasn't seen it:

I'd like to see someone come and break into my house.

Do you know my brother?  If I thought he'd seen Cheat Commandos, I'd totally call him Gunhaver from now on.

That Magician series is pretty good.  He's written a few followups, also.

I've been gradually working my way through the Xanth series again.  No idea if I'm reading stuff I have read before or not.

Trying desperately to finish Song Summoner before moving on to FFTA2 (I know if I don't, I'll never finish SS, and I'd like to do that).

It's true what they say - no one ever went broke by underestimating the stupidity of the American public.
2501  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Watchmen trailer! on: July 18, 2008, 01:20:11 PM
Read an article from someone who has been on-set, and he said they're really putting a TON of attention to detail, and it looks great.

He talked to the director or somebody, who said that in every version of the script they've seen, the ending's been a bit different from the comic.  A bit more "traditional," if you will.  Not all sunshine and butterflies, but different.  I'm sure some people won't be happy no matter what, but hopefully it'll be something most people are OK with.

Man - watching that trailer really made me want to read the graphic novel again.

On a sort-of-but-not-really-related subject, anyone here ever read the Wild Cards series?  (They're a set of superhero-ish books written by a bunch of folks and edited by George R. R. Martin.  Good stuff, hard to find, and fairly similar in tone to Watchmen.)

The premise sounds classic no matter HOW the game turns out.

Very, very smart move.  I'm sure I'm not the only one who felt that way.  Thanks for the info!

I've got your back, John - I've only been to E3 once, but I must say it made the next nine months or so a bummer, because every game that I was interested in was suddenly old news to me.  Every time someone came out with cool new info, I already knew from playing/seeing it at E3.  Plus, I worked my freaking tail off that week for the site I wrote for at that point.

And yet, a big, jealous punch in the gut for all attendees somehow does feel appropriate during this week every year. :D

Don't know about everyone else, but I'm *sick* of these games, period.

I <3 music games a ton.  So much that I'm stoked to see a remake of Samba De Amigo coming out on the Wii so that I don't have to pull out my Dreamcast and maracas to play it.
