I grew a beard and dyed it green (pic inside) April 28, 2011, 1:28 pm

(Me desperately attempting to kill everyone reading the thread via telekinesis.)

For shits and giggles I grew a beard and dyed it green (the actual result being a dark turquoise tone). My official excuse to do it is to celebrate the upcoming Walpurgis Night (aka Vappu), which is a huge carnival-style celebration day in Finland and in some other European countries, during which people go totally crazy, drink like sponges and do all sorts of weird things.

I kinda like this beard, and it felt especially heart-warming when a girl (whom I totally have a secret crush on) working at the local grocery store called my colored stubble "handsome".

That's pretty much about it so far. But I'll post it here in case something extra memorable happens during this Vappu.

So do any of you guys celebrate Walpurgis Night, and if so, what kind of festivities do you have in mind? Or do you have any interesting memories to share from previous Walpurgis experiences?

Metacritic amuses me December 20, 2010, 8:24 pm


I know many sites pull this type of information out of their asses, but this is definitely the first of its kind I've seen on Doom 4.

Doom deathmatching is awesome (again!) August 25, 2007, 12:47 am
I just finished playing a round of damn intense and fun 3 player classic deathmatch. It just happens to be the first time I played Doom deathmatch in nearly four years and boy, I had almost completely forgotten just how ridiculously awesome it can be. The adrenaline rush I had during the peak of the match was simply something that I haven't fully experienced while gaming ever since quitting Doom deathmatching. In the end I didn't win, but it didn't affect the enjoyability factor of the match one bit, quite the contrary in fact - the match was very even all the way through, which made it all the more enjoyable.

The match was pretty much as bare bones as Doom DM can get - Chocolate Doom was our port of choice and Doom II map02 the level. There were no railguns, no freelook, no flags to capture and no tanks to drive, just 3 Doom marines blasting at each other using the classic Doom controls and arsenal - just the way I remember it, and just the way I like it. All in all I'd say very few games can match the pure & simple, highly enjoyable action the best Doom deathmatches offer.

Shaving your head can be surprisingly dangerous August 27, 2006, 11:35 am




All it took was one minor slip-up, which makes me wonder what kind of a wound would a major shaving error produce.

Has Cyb moved on? May 25, 2006, 4:09 pm
Just wondering. His page seems dead plus he hasn't actively posted here for a looong time. If he is truly gone, I'm wondering if DW could mirror his cool site (of course someone would have to contact him first and ask him for the site's files and all that too).
