booked a nice place in West Hollywood from airbnb. I'm stoked because the people, among other things, list CIRCUS PERFORMERS as their profession. I'm in for a truly LA experience

There's a scene in Ever17 where a character munches on a head of lettuce covered in ketchup.  

The ketchup is so she can imagine she's eating the head of her defeated foes with blood dripping.
Maybe my coworker was a psycho.

Sansa Clip+ came and I successfully flashed it with Rockbox. Kinda maybe a little wish I went for the Clip Zip so I could play Doom on it properly, but meh.

Reading up on what kind of 64gb SD cards it takes. Apparently it likes slower ones.

--- edit ---

blew through like four gigs of this thing already.

also where is my copy of Entroducing. I want that on there.

also fwiw

I'm over halfway through Alloy of Law and though the book reads quickly and I'm enjoying it, it isn't as deep as the prior Mistborn books.  In fact, it reads more YA, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but it's not quite as dense as I'd like.  Looks like I'll have to start Stormlight Archives next because that may fit the bill for what I want.

Klutz, your post reminded me of another memorable gaming moment that I neglected to mention in this thread, but have posted about all over the place and even used in an RPGFan feature:  Getting Zell and the library girl with pigtails together.  I thought that was the best love story in the game because it felt more genuine than the botched Romeo and Juliet of the main couple. 


I also distinctly remember the first time I played FF8, I didn't complete the quest but during a flashback scene when Zell
promises to forge Rinoa a ring like Squall's, she asks what's up with him and the library girl and when he's taken aback, she's all like "everyone at school's talking about it."
  The third time I played FF8, I tried to recreate my actions to get that piece of dialogue again since no one else seems to have gotten it, but failed.  Too bad, because that was a great scene. 

In FF8, the "school ties" and "teen beat" stuff was wholly more interesting than the Blair Witch hunt.  One scene I felt was kinda glossed over was the one where Rinoa mentions that she used to date Seifer and I would have liked to know more about that (because it's not often that RPG heroines have a dating past; they're usually all innocent and virginal to a fault), but then Squall got stuck in his own mind, had a conniption fit, and made the moment all about him.

Glad this thread found it's way back up, because I just encountered a really subtle moment from Persona 4 I had completely forgotten about.

It's the moment when the NPC girl by the library mentions that "Senpai" is actually another girl. It's just mentioned so casually--one day she just happens to use a pronoun when describing her--and it both is and isn't done to illicit a reaction. I don't know what I'm saying, but it does happen to make me smile. Not only did they give a pointless NPC's story a plot-twist but it's a really cute plot twist, too.

To be fair I sometimes eat paper, but only because when I finish a lollipop I have a habit of just chewing on the stick for a while.

^ My biggest concern with that (aside from the fact that the original aired almost 30 years ago) is that Alan Young will be like 3-4 years shy of a full hundo when they start producing this. I'm doubtful he'll be up to voicing a full-on series. Hopefully, the (likely) new voice actor will be faithful to Young's interpretation.
I'm not holding out any hope for the reboot in general, but hopefully, I'll be pleasantly surprised.

If Disney is good at one thing, it's finding voice actors to always keep their characters sounding the same. I'm sure the same will apply here.

I've been following the development of a promising looking indie RPG tentatively called "Icy".  It's a dialogue-heavy adventure CRPG (PC/Mac/Linux) in a post-apocalyptic setting where the world is experiencing a new Ice Age.  The game play will involve a lot of tough moral choices and a strong emphasis on the survival aspect; e.g., your party must hunt for food, scavenge for supplies, and deal with dangerous beasts and cannibals.   There's some really nice artwork as well. 

The game is nearly complete with an estimated release of June, but the developers are running an Indiegogo campaign to help with polishing:  A $6 pledge gets you a digital copy of the game if you're so inclined.  Looks like they will reach their modest funding goal. 

You can also help by voting for the game on Steam Greenlight and GOG wishlist.
