FAIR USE: CRITICISM – Really good clip from a really good movie.
I wish I was just a little bit more fcked up or a whole lot less.
Fcking no man’s land is no place to live.
FAIR USE: CRITICISM – Great clip from a great movie.
HERE’S something not to do:
Manage to acquire some sort of business, make it really really suck, then have two friends come in during peak hours. Wait for any sort of complaint from any customer, and then…
(Friend One) :Speaking up as they stand, as if to corroborate the complaint, and saying the long insult by the Waldorf Salad guy altered as necessary, but clearly on the complainer’s side:
THEN, very quickly, friend two stands as if deeply offended, speaking up as the Major did in the Waldorf Salad episode of ‘Fawlty Towers’, and making his punchline be another crummy business that does what yours does but is even WORSE.
It’s so simple it’s BRILLIANT.
James Tiberius Kirk handled it very well, of course…but I think there’s another scenario response that ought to be tried. You’ll still LOSE, of course…but you lose in STYLE, baby.
*Kobayashi Maru Commander* “This is the Kobayashi Maru…we have struck a-”
*Cadet, Interrupting* “Yeah, I know. Look, here’s an idea ladies and germs – next time your navigations officer or whatever-spacial-dangers officer says ‘Captain…we appear to be headed toward some sort of mine’, DON’T say “Ehhh…keep going”.
*Kobayashi Maru Commander* “Steady on course, helmsman.”
*Helmsman* “Ummm…begging the Captain’s pardon, but this is the area that has contained a mine each of the past 237 times we’ve entered it. Maybe we should just hook a right, or something?”
New movie ‘Valerian’ coming soon.
Well, no idea if it’s any good, but it’s definitely about d@mn time someone made a ‘Space Mutiny’ prequel.
Why is Elliot dressed as Captain Jean-Luc Picard in the ripoff – I MEAN GREAT GIVEAWAY – ad for Jordan’s Furniture?
Speaking of serial killer fascination…
Lilith sums up sociopaths and why rebound-dating is bad:
“So, essentially, Frasier was a toy you played with briefly and then threw away; a fellow human being whose emotions you twisted for your own satisfaction, with no consideration for his feelings.”
Shop Name: “By Grabthar’s Hammer… what a savings.”
The ellipsis is what makes it really work.
FAIR USE: CRITICISM – A clip that’s really… great.
Achievement: “Life, uh, Finds A Way”.
The lack of humility…before nature being displayed by this achievement (and this post, and this website, and…), uh, staggers me.
FAIR USE: CRITICISM – A great clip from a decent if overrated movie. Ian Malcolm explains why science isn’t always worthy of unquestioned worship.
Is it just me, or does the cop who pops in the VHS tape near the beginning of AHX look a heck of a lot like a worn-out version of overly-friendly-turned-psycho cop from ‘Last Clear Chance’?
McDonald’s is advertising their exciting “wild-caught” fish.
So evidently they’ve stopped using this method:
FAIR USE: CRITICISM – Not the best way to catch mass quantities.
“I’m … disappointed that you’ve chosen to store her, I had the pleasure to interact with her and you played her beautifully.” – ‘Armageddon’ staff
Oh, I bet you tell that to all the boys.
And you’re not the first! I’ve turned down several people already today. Still, we’ll get around it.
Conclusion: I guess I’m the Boogie Cousins of roleplaying.
P.S. – The hardest part of Forgotten Kingdoms roleplay is pretending, in character, that Gwain’s incredibly dull and persistent (and unpunished) obvious anachronistic stupidity doesn’t make you want to either puke or kick him in the nuts. Projectile vomit, maybe?
I was there YEARS ago, and also DAYS ago.
And no sidewinding, bushwhacking, hornswoggling, cracker-croaker is gonna roll my bishercutter!
And his roleplay hasn’t changed. Not at all. So, obviously, there’s been no punishment for his OBVIOUS and CONTINUAL violations of supposed “roleplay enforcement”, making the claim of “roleplay enforcement” just a huge pile of untrue advertising bullsh1t.
I’m not talking about things that are borderline. I’m not talking about a mistake once in a while. I’m not talking about “hey what’s up” instead of “Ho there, yon dapper fellow! Howst farest thee this day?”
I’m talking about persistent, constant, incessant, FOR YEARS, blatant, impossible-to-ignore and impossible-to-respond-in-character-to anachronisms.
As long as he’s there, every “rule” they have is worthless. Because they do NOT “enforce” roleplay. He is a living, breathing, anachronism-spewing example of that.
As to WHY…I can’t possibly imagine. It’s not like he’s even INTERESTING in his rule-breaking. He’s not even FUNNY when he does it. He’s DULL. DULL, DULL, My GOD he’s dull…and irrepressibly drab and awful.
Anyways, my job here is done. Now, the ritualistic sex.
2/25/17: Also, please feel free to try ‘The Burning Post’ 2.1. Because if you’re looking for a MUD where you can put in a lot of effort without worrying about the IMP getting bored and doing a “soft reboot”…this ain’t it. BUT, he’ll gladly tell you about his personal life and talk about how much he wishes he was playing other games. Because, after all, it’s “more of a”…(chat channel?)…”than a MUD”.
Caveats (I need to brush my MUDs more often): Shard is very helpful. Psyche is pretty helpful. Most of the players are fairly helpful, and decent RPers. Some are pretty darn good, actually. Vis:
FAIR USE: CRITICISM – A decent clip from an…ok episode. Idle does his best to carry the show post-Cleese.
I felt inspired to post the following PSA. You’re lucky.
When and if you drink, *always* drink responsibly. Vis:
FAIR USE: CRITICISM – Good clip from an unrecognized genius.
BTW, this post is number 3,333.
A remarkable accomplishment!
FAIR USE: CRITICISM – A clip from MST3K’s/Ed Wood’s ‘The Violent Years’, with horror levels almost as high as the movie ‘Shivers’.
If you’re ever in a conflict with another (verbal, mental, physical, checkers…) and it becomes incredibly obvious that you’ve essentially won, but they simply refuse to concede defeat, just look at them and say with mild annoyance: “Look, you stupid b@stard, you’ve got no arms left!”
Saves a lot of time and hey, they ain’t worth it.
I think this could become the next great catchphrase in the Trump era.
FAIR USE: CRITICISM – The clip is intended to portray a conflict of words and also someone betrayed by their arrogance. It does both well.
Grimmsy the Third is coming IMMINENTLY! Or REALLY SOON.
But now, the antitheist vaudevillian:
FAIR USE: CRITICISM – It’s funny. You know, just funny.
FAIR USE: CRITICISM – Good clip from a good movie.
To clarify, I do *not* oppose science.
I do not oppose science facts; and I wholeheartedly denounce “alternative” facts.
The point I have tried to make, via much more intelligent sources such as Paul Feyerabend and George Orwell, is that you should always think for yourself.
That doesn’t mean make up your own facts.
It means do careful research, gather input from all sources, analyze all the data available, and make a realistic, informed decision; taking into account facts and opinions, and ignoring outright lies and propaganda.
The ultimate enemy is propaganda, in ANY form. You can’t use propaganda to defeat propaganda; that’s called hypocrisy.
With an open mind and an open heart, always seek out the truth in your self and in the world. This is how to respond to “alternative facts”.
And, when you know something is propagandic BS, the very worst thing you can do is to ignore/accept it.
If you can’t oppose it, you can at the very least mock it.
You know…ridicule it. In public, yet.
Well whaddya know, Dick Dawk’s advice finally proves useful. For SOMETHING.
Suggested Reading: ‘Nineteen Eighty-Four’. Yes, I read it…I even *reviewed* it!
I’m not sure about their main number, but here’s their alternative fax:
FAIR USE: CRITICISM – Cool clip from a movie I haven’t reviewed yet. I don’t think there’s much more to the entire movie than (things like) this, but hey it’s kinda cute.
Ad for ‘Salem Five’:
The kid playing the tuba did NOT survive the zombie apocalypse. (See the opening of ‘Land Of The Dead’).
And definitely didn’t hook up with Mr. B.
As the saying goes, you’re NOT gonna play well without using plenty of lip and tongue action.
To open: I think Trump is a scumbag and I in no way support him. HOWEVER…
“Protesters who assembled in the area — some throwing rocks and bricks at the police — had smashed car windows…Earlier in the day, protesters destroyed the glass front of a Bank of America and a Starbucks in the area; images captured some people holding hammers…”
So, to protest the election of a hateful candidate, you engage in violent, hateful, destructive activities? Yeah, that makes sense.
Also, you are aware – I hope – that being a police officer does not make you inherently a Trump supporter (amazing I’d have to say that, but see below), and that police officers preventing people from smashing windows has nothing to do with Trump. It’s called “their job”. You know…keeping the peace? Something you (I would assume) supposedly support?
Point of note: Just because you think Trump wants to set up a fascist “police-state” does not mean that ALL police officers are – on election day – SUDDENLY fascist opponents of freedom and ardent Trump supporters.
I mean, what are you, ignorant? Read a fcken book or something.
““Police officers,” a woman in the crowd grumbled, “are Trump supporters.””
What are you, a moron? Your actions and your rhetoric are just as ignorant and hateful as the rhetoric you’re SUPPOSEDLY protesting.
It’s called a PEACEFUL TRANSFER OF POWER. Respect it, you dumb fcks.
You wanna protest? Fine, protest. But do it peacefully. You know, like civilized, not-hateful, non-ignorant people. Like the people you supposedly are, not like the people you supposedly oppose.
“They chanted — “We are a peaceful protest!” — but by late morning, several shop windows in downtown Washington had been shattered…”
By the way, you wanna know why Trump won? I mean, besides racism, sexism, misogyny, homophobia, xenophobia, etc…
But seriously, ONE small part of why he won is this: A lot of people that are NOT racist, sexist, misogynistic, homophobic, xenophobic a$$holes were just tired of the upward-trending snarky elitism from certain groups…
So way to go, antitheists. You’ve helped elect Donald Trump.
I think Dick Dawk’s “Mock them. Ridicule them in public.” method didn’t work QUITE as well as he’d (and they’d) hoped.
So, now football AND basketball fans are all incredibly stupid?
Chevy Silverado ad:
“Oh, did I say there was *one* Silverado? There’s *five*”
*Silverados appear…people murmur, sort of like…”ok…”*
And that’s it.
Nothing about the Silverado.
Oh, did I say there was *one* piece of lint in my pocket? There’s *five*.
So fcken what you d@mn moron???
I think it would be great if they re-made the ST:TOS episode ‘The Changeling’, basically having it be the same except Nomad would respond slightly-altered thusly:
“Non-Sequitur. Puppies and kittens are cute.”
Look, I’m dapuppy. I’m dapuppy and I want my snausages.
To whom it may concern:
“…it’s just cuz (they’re) pissed off.”
“(he/she/it/they/them) didn’t believe in sh1t. None of ’em did.”
