After 35 or 36 hours of pure exitement and thill that can only come from sitting down (be it in a train, one a plane, one another plane, on a bus (LHR terminal 1 to 4), on a third plane and then on a car I arrived home tired, sore and in need of a shower yesterday morning. I tried to fill my day best I could, enjoying the six episodes of the gilmore girls that i missed (yes, im such a fag - but it is
a good show, even the guy that writes for the tv guide says so) and then fell alseep mid afternoon. I was going to try to meet up with some friends last night, and even though i had set the alarm, i dont remember waking up.
I eventuantually did wake up at around 4am this morning, which is generally the time i go to sleep under normal circumstances. I was going to bitch and whine about how much jet lag sucks, until just now a interview came on morning tv here with a reasearcher who examines whale shit. It has - so far been a very educational experiance - after all when else on tv could you hear all the different terms for shit such as poo, poop, faeces and scat within one or two minutes. Right now im learning about the defecation procedures of blue whales. From waking up this early i've discovered two major advantages that one receives by experiancing the period of the day known as morning - that being the creative journalism that is featured in the various morning current affairs programs, and this meal called breakfast that i'm about to participate in.
While at heathrow i picked up a pair of oakley w square 2's (platinum w/ gold lens which do exists, despite what their website says) for 125 pounds, a bit more than they cost here, but running around spending my money at heathrow seeed a lot more interesting than sitting down more and staring into space for two hours.
i was also going to pick up a pair of sony mdrv700dj headphones at bangkok. they were about 5700 of whatever currency unit they use in the kingdom of thailand (= au$250, considerably cheaper than here) but i figured id check prices in europe first, which ended out being the same as au prices. when i got to bangkok they said they dont sell them anymore. suck. anyway, i think im going to put some more time into looking at headphones, i think i might spend a bit more and get seinheisers(sp) instead.

Yes, according to a survey done by an economist, Everquest
is now the 78th richest country in the world. I don't know quite how to respond to that, as I feel paying for virtual items is retarded, but, whatever. I've seen the same thing on diablo II. And just like an unregulated capitalist economy should, the rich get richer, and the poor get poorer. So the poor combat that by injecting their own hard currency into the game to buy good items.

After attending the wake next door, fortunately of no one I really knew to any great degree, I let me tell you one thing. Never EVER drink Lagavulin [pronounced lag-a-vo-lin]. This stuff is like pipe cleaner, it takes the taste right out of your mouth and leaves it with such a foul one. I was in a room with around 5 veteran drinks [as in people over say 50, compared to my rank a PFC drinker to these Generals] and I've never seen so many people rush for the nearest drink to get rid of it. It was HORRIBLE. If you like uber-peaty whiskey, then by all means destroy all the living tissue inside your body, but otherwise only use this to clean wounds or stuff like that.In lui of the State Of The Union Address tonight, we thought it fitting to honour the President of the free world the only way we know how.

Given that the previous post is technically uncalled for, it's still good for shits and giggles betweena couple of us, which is what we're here for anyway. And just to let Kami know, three newsposts doesn't make a front page ;)Normally I'm quite vehement in my view on posting about how my life is and shit espcially after coming to terms with my increasingly dull middle class existence, but I think I can make this one exception. In a short trip from the details, this week, month and therefore year has been pretty decent so far in retrospect, not just that nothing has gone particularly badly either. School has been good, the moron particles that parade as my peers seem to have denatured into more stable and strongly bonded idiot ions, and some actual intelligent moles of people seem to be coming together, but I fear I speak too soon.A sudden rush of motavation for learning and working has come across me since going back, I think maybe because in the first time in...along time I've actually been learning something that isn't just a rehashed idea of 1st grade math or being taught stuff from a textbook I knew anyway. Given these things are concepts I'm actually teaching myself, but in the end it's all the same right? And in the short term, I attended my first concert on Friday. None other than the unearthly Dream Theater. Easily the most forfilling experience of my life [says something huh?]. A riproaring three hour spectacular, you were so awestruck by the whole thing you didn't even realise you'd been standing up for well over 3hours. They played some very new and some very old tracks, and alot of rarly heard live ones too. Given this was the first gig of their World Turbulence Tour and ones such as this are mainly done to get things right, it was still fucking amazing. I do congratulate you for reading this inane, pointless and completely self centred post. Rest assured normal disturbing, unnerving and partial funny link/news story/opinion/picture posting will be resumed shortly.

moment of disparigy was posted?TheShadow
Now Hollywood has got over it's time of mourning, we're going to party to a plethora of flag-waving military jingo-flicks with titles such as We Were Soldiers, Black Hawk Down and Eat Lead Ape Mother Fuckers.Centering on the civil war that ravaged Somaila and, to quote the films opening credits, the biblical starvation that followed. The local warlord [the unseen General Aidid] who controls the capital is taking the UN Aid and using it to control the populus. Marines go in and secure the aid, but he waits until they've left and seizes it all once again. To cut a long story short, the US decides it's going to send in some of the Army's Special Forces, the Rangers and Delta Force, to take part in a smash and grab of some of the General's top aids. Even in the briefing room alarm bells were going off in my head, the arrogant attitude that lead to the situation going wrong in the first place is partly shown in the planning of the operation. Just driving up to the front door and waiting for the prisoners to be loaded on and hope no one else in the centre of this Warlords' territory will notice?Soon all hell breaks loose, with one Blackhawk down, then another. With several of the squads split up and no hope of an air evac, it's up to the Deltas and Rangers to get to and defend the crash sites. Surviving would also be preferable.Directed by Ridley Scott, it's no surprize here that the film certainly look brilliant. Scott is often more concerned about the lighting and effects on an explosion than the man it kills. You can't help but feel like you're watching some form of cutscene from a game with the amount of militia being mowed down. The selling point of this film, as with many other Scott titles, is the amount fo headlining actors there are in the film, no matter how much of a relativly small part they might play. The unfortunate problem with this - as was with Band of Brothers - there are so many intergral characters, as is the point of the story, that you lose track of who's who as people all tend to look the same when they've covered in sweat,blood and dirt with helmets on. Remembering their roles/ranks was one thing, remembering their names was another.The story itself is pretty basic and slow moving, but not really the point of the film. There is a sizeable amount of toing and froing between all the stranded chalks - squad call signs - and you can lose the thread, but if you do it doesn't really matter. The film only really gives us one moment of any form of repreive from fighting/war/field surgery [not hugly appetising] with a moment where the film did have a chance to explain alot more about the reasons behind the hatred than it did, but the conflict between the two opposed types of script would of spoilt the movie, so under doing it was probably the best way to play that part.Overall, it's nothing hugly spectacular in ways of story telling or having any real depth to the characters (even though we are given about 20minutes before they even board the choppers), the saving grace of the film being the sterling performances of several of the actors [espcially Josh Harnett, does a very good Keanu Reeves impression all the way through] and the abstract look at the action alot of the camera shots and special effects give you. I wouldn't recommend you go and see it, but if there's nothing else on then there are definately worse ways to spend your Saturday.TheShadow

Well the rumours of internal corruption, miss-management and complete lack of regard for bananas at RAX have finally emurged to be true.

it would take to close down your school Genesis... We had over a meter (that's well over three feet for the Americans out there.

The new series has just aired over here and all in all it's a pretty decend follow on.

Some of you have probably read this one before, but it is still too good not to post. You can really feel the pain guy #1 is going through in this old Darwin Award story:
(The late) John Pernicky and his friend, (the late) Sal Hawkins, of the great state of Washington, decided to attend a local Metallica concert at the George Washington amphitheatre. Having no tickets (but having had 18 beers between them), they thought it would be easy to "hop" over the nine foot fence and sneak into the show. They pulled their pickup truck over to the fence and the plan was for Mr. Pernicky, who was 100-pounds heavier than Mr. Hawkins) to hop the fence and then assist his friend over. Unfortunately for (the late) Mr. Pernicky, there was a 30-foot drop on the other side of the fence. Having heaved himself over, he found himself crashing through a tree. His fall was abruptly halted (and broken, along with his arm) by a large branch that snagged him by his shorts. Dangling from the tree witha broken arm, he looked down and saw some bushes below him. Possibly figuring the bushes would break his fall, he removed his pocket knife and proceeded to cut away his shorts to free himself from the tree. Finally free, Mr. Pernicky crashed into holly bushes. The sharp leaves scratched his ENTIRE body and now, without the protection of his shorts, a holly branch penetrated his rectum. To make matters worse, on landing, his pocket knife penetrated his thigh. Mr. Hawkins, seeing his friend in considerable pain and agony, threw him a rope and pull him to safety by tying the rope to the pickup truck and slowly driving away. However, in his drunkenhaste/state, he put the truck into reverse and crashed through the fence landing onhis friend and killing him. Police arrived to find the crashed pickup with its driver thrown 100 feet from the truck and dead at the scene from massive internal injuries. Upon moving the truck, they found John under it half-naked, scratches on his body, a holly stick in his rectum, a knife in his thigh, and his shorts dangling from a tree branch 25-feet in the air.Viper

[I wonder why they chose this picture, maybe due to the unplanned 'extra insig possibly?]. For those of you who don't know, Frank Skinner used to be part of a double act who moved from satire on a number of things - mainly football - and then on to the more stand-up aspect of things and they've finally gone their seperate ways, with Skinner now having his own chat show deal. As you'd probably expect, the styles of questions are not exactly the same as you'd find on Parkinson or whatever and as they put it are rather "cheeky".It'll probably end up being a complete sell-out, being paid vast sums not to ask too many awkward questions but it should still be interesting none the less. All pop artists who go on end making complete asses of themselves - as you'd expect - answering with simple "uh yea, like yea tehehe".

It's just me? well I never! now, by your silence that you always answer, in the affirmative, no matter what I ask? ......Oh this is just pointless! maybe I should stop rambling and save us all the trouble of seeing me go on like this getting more and more insane by the minute. but you like to watch me go insane. talking and talking aobut nothing. But I won't let me. really. you see I'm not mad at all and I think I extended this horrible excuse of a reason to post far to long don't you think? >:( there you go agreeing with me again.... alas I must stop, 'cause I ain't got no reason to continue... or do I?

And now the news. Several things have been updated, added or changed over the past few weeks, here's a little list.
- Staff Bios are now up. If someones isn't there it's because they haven't given it in, if you've lost it e-mail me
- Shout outs have been updated. Some have been removed and another added.
- Links have alos been updated. A number have been removed and a whole new section devoted to webcomics has been added.[Note: If you don't think any should go on/anytihng to add, do tell me]
- The games section has also been updated to reflect Steve, Matt's and my new found addiction to SC/BW and Mike and Eskil's to Civ3.
- A reminder, the poll has been updated and is in dire need of votes.
- On the left you will have no doubt by now noticed the three buttons with the word "info" below them. These are the sites that we feel we're much more closely connected to than to just give a mere link and a short info blurb, site bio and screenshot has been provided for you.
- Last, but by no means least, you now have freely avaliable stalker material for your inner perv. Just click on whatever babe is displaying to get her vitals and a short retrospective text on her and our opinions of her. Soon to be updated into just launching a js window.
That's all for the moment sports fans, look back later for more.TheShadow

- Can I buy you a drink or do you just want the money?
- I may not be the best looking guy in here, but I'm the only one talking to you.
- Oh, I'm sorry, I thought that was a braille name tag.
- I'd really like to see how you look when I'm naked.

- (Lick finger and wipe on her shirt) Let's get you out of those wet clothes.
Can someone explain how this is possible?Such is the will of a11ah!Viper
Well, it's 1 am, and I can't sleep. Getting up at 6:30 for college
Now, if I could actually lay down and sleep right now, that might not be so bad, but I can feel my body will be resisting my commands to doze off for another three-four hours. What fun... I knew I should have tried to turn back my internal sleep clock a little sooner... than last night, that is
What to do... I think I'll play some Civ3. It won't help me sleep, but I have pulled all-nighters before and not slept until the I got home from school the next day... But of course, as it is, I've also got work tomorrow, after school.
*sigh* Oh well, I guess I should get to bed then. Close my eyes and try to sleep, which never works anyway.
If you bothered to read this far, I guess I can tell you now: No, there is no point to this post.Viper
Civilization is heaven and that Sid Meier is a god!
Civ games are just so amazingly great - such a complex game presented in such a simple fashion - it's just something you do need to go an buy. Civ 3 was the first game i've got in over a year, maybe that says something.
I havn't had a chance to play it all that much (ie, only 4 or 5 all nighters) but the game i was playing recently is one im really enjoying. There was three main civ's, myself (french - they suit my playing style), the english and the aztecs, all the land is taken and we all border each other on this one big island. We'd just developed gunpowder as the english attack me. Not ready for this im on the back foot and lost a couple of towns, so i desperately ask for the help of the aztecs in an alliance (more just so that the english didnt get an alliance with them.) However this ended out back firing on me, as the aztecs were ready for war an mobilised quickly, taking the majority of english cities while i took just a couple - leaving with a super-power (the aztecs), then me and then the rest. At least due to my cultural superiority over the aztecs, some of their cities are defecting to me (thats my favourite new feature to the game - being a non-agresive player.) My plan is to ensure that i get the UN before they do (so they cant get a diplomatic win) leaving the game to a space race, where i'll hopefully win.
It's a great game.
Also, dont waste your time with Half Life: Blue Shift - i finished the fucker in less than 3 hours. See you guys next year!
The French? I'm disappointed in you Mike. Happy New Year btw!
I just got a hold of Civilization 3, and I just wanted to notify you all that it TOTALLY ROCKS!!! Best game I've played since... erm... Civilization 2. No, that's a lie. It's sooo much better than Civ2, it's not even funny.
Right, I just wanted to say that. I'm back to playing, I've got a British monarch to crush. Fortunately, she's so far behind me that her cities voluntarily join my great culture at the mere sight of the splendors I can offer them. So haha to you, Ms. Elizabeth! Next, to take on the French. Serves them right for building resource-colonies inside my borders! I'll see to it that you never eat another croissant!Update:
Mike, back me up here, I have to convince the heathens we call staffmembers that Civilization is heaven and that Sid Meier is a god!Viper
I've spoken to a number of staffers about closing the forum - those of you I haven't it's because I haven't obviously seen you to - and intend to implement it within the next day or so. Reasons being it serves no purpose anymore, with hardly more than a handful of inane posts each day and no more than 4-5 non [lp] Staff posters I hardly see the point in having it open anymore, espcially since I never advocated it being re-opened for this very reason [once again I was ignored, reminds me of a situation with a layout too for some reason, can't think why].So if anyone has a reason not to close them, do make us of them and post it. One doubts what bearing it will have, but humour me.TheShadow
Damn school to hell. I'm going back on tuesday not thursday as previously thought. This displeases a11ah greatly.TheShadow
New Years was the best ever. The days leading up to it was spend with the buddies in perfect weather drinking beers, having barbeques, swimming in crystal clear water, and generally laxing out.
The night of New Years was also awesome, in the town was the coolest street party, we were drunk, went on the trippiest carnival ride (Gravitron), generally had a good time, and the four of us slept under a tree in the middle of town in our sleeping bags for the night. Was cool.
Heaps of other cool shit went on, but I'm lazy, and you're probably not caring. Meh. Happy New Years! Gammyleg
Man, I've just rediscovered my SC addiction, even more now I can play online. Steve and I (misrepresending [lp]) faced off against Genesis98 and Kamika_Z (represending AWD), and despite a near sucessful campaign against Genesis, we got our asses handed to us in the end, a report on that later.I leave you with this thought, "YOKICKAS!".TheShadowChristians can be such narrowminded assholes
... Well, generally, they are, actually. Marx had a few valid points after all, it seems...Viper
Well here it is, a new wallpaper of Kim Smith:

Enjoy all that you can!Grim
This was recently found on the NY Post website:
December 30, 2001 -- She's not that innocent - Britney Spears has reportedly confessed to no longer being a virgin. The sultry 19-year-old singer was overheard at an awards party boasting about her sexcapades with *NSYNC boyfriend Justin Timberlake, according to London's News of the World. "Justin and I have great sex," the pop diva gushed to a dancer at a recent backstage bash in New York. "We're just like any other couple but I don't like talking about it publicly."
Well, on to more shocking news..... I'm still stuck out here on an island all alone... and it's damn wet......And cold.... and why don't i have a gf? My dumbass friend who's uglier than I am and less sociable does..... why not me????? bah! Humbug....
Oh! and kudos to Kamika_Z of AWD
for finding it.....You are not yet strong with the p1mpside. Help me out here Master Steve.Grim
Surly not I hear you say. Seeing
is believing. Sounds like it'll only work on some architectures or whatever that is and it's not like I have Quake 2, but it's damn interesting concept. No doubt the novelty'd wear off after a bit, but hey, it's be like watching the Matrix via Agent Smith.

Another new years eve over, and I'm finally back in my apartment. Not quite up to my normal standards of awareness and limb control yet, but it's getting there. Overall, a good night it was.Viper
Needed to post something I guess.Hope everyone had a good night last night, with the lack of people online and whatnot - it's my measure atleast - I'd say most people did.I don't read Solo anymore, haven't done for about 4months now, and since Genesis and I were talking about sexy geeks and therefore Silicon Gelica, I decided to pay him a visit. Another cliched user of the random picture I see and he seems to have found a new affinity for inbedded sound files...doesn't detract from the whole geocities look. Maybe that was his new years resolution, learn some really mundane and age old web trick and use it to death. Maybe i'm just cynical.Anyway, that's my rant for today. I'll find the motavation to redo the links section with the addition of sites we actually visit not the ones that turned Randy on. TheShadow
