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.”
And you thought Grimmsy couldn’t get more exciting than Strip One!
I put it on the rarified level of that classic short film the Stooges made in ‘Movie Maniacs’.
And MORE to come!!!
Here’s a status update on some of those things I know you’ve been wondering about.
Grimmsy Grimmling strip number two: Still expected by the end of December, hopefully.
Semper Puppy online radio: Still there, playing grunge and various other thingies.
This website: Noticeably less interesting lately.
My creative inspiration: Lacking, though you never can tell. I mean, look how clever this bit is.
The Patriots: In the playoffs. Couldn’t other teams in the AFC East try just a *little* harder? It’s like Trelaine (sp?) hunting Kirk.
My dating life: Non-existent.
My evaluation of whether any woman will ever want to touch me again: Unchanged.
My preferred method for dying: Someone tearing one of my arms off and beating me to death with it.
Suggested time frame for this happening: Well not NOW. I mean, QUITE a while. I’m too young to die, after all. Too young, and too handsome. *peek in reflective surface* AH! … Well, too young.
How long this series of stupid updates will go on: I sense an imminent ending.
Future ideas for Grimmsy: LOTS! Really…can you stand it???
Current position: Sitting down and facing forward.
Random MST3K Recommendation: ‘The Creeping Terror’
Random Pun: What do you call making fun of someone using wordplay? A pun jab, of course.
Will there be more “Grumpy Old Puppy” entries?: Oh yes!
I guess it’s even closer than he (and I) thought.
(See: ‘Black Mirror’, episode “Nosedive”).
It’s scary. I mean, I’m not joking. It is.
If it doesn’t scare you…WAKE UP!
“No… could you repeat it, because I can’t believe my fcken ears.”
Apply as needed, allow 10 seconds to dry.
“and I asked myself…why did I ever buy into this sh1t in the first place? It’s just cuz I was pissed off.”
Crusading atheists/antitheists…just, stop it. Please.
“People are killed in the name of religion” is a popular refrain from them.
Well, I think insane people kill people because they’re insane. You know, like in ‘Seven’. John Doe, if you’ll notice, is insane. He also *identifies* as Christian. But he’s not, obviously. He’s a lunatic. People aren’t killed by John Doe because he is or is not Christian. People are killed by John Doe because he’s a lunatic. The fact that he identifies himself (falsely) as a Christian is completely unrelated.
If he were a devout atheist, and killed people for *believing*…would that mean that atheism is dangerous? I mean, by the logic of “if anyone of X does something, it applies to all” that you like to (try to) use, it goes both ways. Assuming character was atheist and killed people for not believing, according to the CA/A argument that “religion is harmful” because a miniscule minority of people that identify as religious do harmful things, therefore (according to your own argument) atheism would be proven dangerous. So therefore it must be campaigned against.
Which is utterly absurd. And illogical. And ridiculous.
I mean, don’t quote the fcken Crusades as “an example”…a lot of things happened CENTURIES ago. Gimme a fcken break. Read Paul Feyerabend’s reponse to that piece of BS.
The reason people do harm (where applicable) is this alone: people choose to do harm (where applicable).
You can assign any “reasoning” you want to it, but (to use the ‘Seven’ example) John Doe’s behavior is not because (and therefore the following groups are DANGEROUS!…*SATIRE…SATIRE…SATIRE*) he is:
– Over age 30
– Under age 90
– Owns a glowing cross night light
– Urinates when necessary
– Defecates when necessary
– Identifies himself (incorrectly) as Christian
He’s a lunatic. The above groups should not be maligned because of that.
Here’s a question for CA/A’s: Do/did you ever watch ‘The Daily Show’? Or ‘The Colbert Report’? MST3K? ‘Cheers’?
And did you not do so (in part, at least) because it was comforting in a way? You were “part of the crowd”, “one of the guys”, etc? It was company, in a way? Friendly company when you wanted it?
How would you feel if someone went out of their way to invade your personal space to tell you “It’s not real! You’re not really part of that!”?
Assuming (and I am not saying this is TRUE, or that I BELIEVE it, but CA/A’s do) that religion is false, “unreal” (like the above)…so what?
Assuming that people take comfort in their religion, that it helps them in times of trouble, that it makes their lives happier, that they enjoy the sense of community…
Just leave ’em alone, man. I mean…get over it.
There is no causation between religion and ANYTHING harmful. So please, again…(I think M. Palin said it best):
(3:49 – 4:20)
FAIR USE: CRITICISM – The above is a good clip from a Monty Python sketch, and also is a great example of someone going ON, and ON, and ON…
If Trump is elected president, I think the wall preventing people from fleeing in terror to Canada should take precedence over the other one.
Recent message from Alexa.com regarding my website ranking:
“We don’t have enough data to rank this website.”
You had “enough data” for the past two months+, you have just as much now…MORE, actually.
I suggest you change that message slightly…here’s an idea:
“We don’t have enough of your money to rank this website.”
Yeah, that has a nice ring to it.
Though, this does solve the problem of “Do/should I give a fck about my alexa.com ranking?”
The answer to “Do I give enough of a fck about my alexa.com ranking to give them money?” is the same as the answer to “should I follow ‘keyword recommendations’ and alter my posts to make them less genuine and more popular?” and “should I pretend to have different opinions that align more with the collective?”
No thanks, I’ll take the nosedive.
