      I'm pretty good, that's what's good. Other than an unfinished map or two in Wads and Mods, a dead Jurassic Park TC, and a cancelled never to be released Free Heretic Map, I have contributed nothing of substance to the Doom community. Except bad posts on Doomworld and ZDoom forums, and a few submissions on Realm667.

      People pretend to be girls on the internet all the time. It just so happened that this phony decided to use a female identity to sell Doom pwads for nothing except increased community feedback? Pretty much run of the mill patheticism.

  2. I'm pretty stoked for this, for a couple of reasons.

    One, it was filmed at the amusement park where I work in the summers. It's funny how realistic the movie actually appears to be, even though it's a complete exaggeration for the most part. For example, I worked at the game featured in the horse race scene my first summer, and I actually did get told by one of my supervisors to be more enthusiastic when announcing the winner, etc.

    Also, my cousin has a pretty decent role in the movie. He's the kid in the trailer who's singing and playing the air drums on the dock.

    It comes out some time in March (in the U.S., at least). So you all should go see it.

      This actually looks pretty good. I may go and see it.

      I don’t suppose your somewhere in the background?

      Is that the same cousin that was in Dogma?

      Haha, no, they filmed it in the fall when the park was only open on weekends. I'm pretty sure everyone in the movie is a hired actor or extra.

      Yes, it is.

  3. Every time I spend money, I immediately take all the coins out of my wallet that I get back in change because they make my wallet bulky and uncomfortable and I put them all into a box in my room. Every so often, I'll gather everything together and either put it in coin wraps and deposit it in the bank or if I'm lazy I'll just go to CoinStar.

    It's about that time again, and I just counted $59 in quarters, which obviously doesn't even include the insane amount of smaller change that's accumulated over the past 8 months or so. So once I get everything sorted out, it'll be like finding a $100 in my pants pocket or something. Pretty sweet. It's like my Christmas present to myself, except I'll probably just end up spending it doing all of my Christmas shopping for other people.

      Heh that's what I thought too.

      In fact I'm pretty sure that's what somebody told me.

  4. I've come to realize that Doomworld is far and away the most soothing on the eyes. I use the default theme and the navy blues/blacks make me far more likely to zone out staring at dwf than any other site that I check out regularly.

    1. Snarboo


      Pages with dark but muted colors and light text are very easy on the eyes. I always tend to go with dark themes if I can at any of the message boards I visit. It really strains your eyes staring at a bright screen for hours on end.

  5. I just saw it for the first time, like ten years late apparently. It was on cable TV so I'm assuming it was somewhat watered down, but I was not overly impressed considering what I've heard people say about it before. The ending was pretty predictable, I thought the last two kills were going to be Brad Pitt's wife and her unborn fetus (and I really thought it was going to be the fetus when the box arrived). But then once all that shit went down I really thought a better ending would have been for Brad Pitt to cap himself instead of or in addition to Kevin Spacey.

    Anyway there was this thing on the Weather Channel earlier about people who live in these Antarctic bases at the South Pole year-round. That was way more interesting than Se7en. They live in this big dome that basically has a small town inside of it, complete with a library and a bar and everything. Since they're so far south, they literally have no sun from March to September, so they're pretty much trapped in there. I think it'd be pretty cool to do that for a year.

    So yeah talk about whatever you want I guess, I just wanted to share my channel surfing results of this idle Wednesday night.

      I have no idea. It's been in the making for like 3 years now. I just hope it doesn't suck.

      Converting the graphic novel to a screen play seems like it'd be really difficult, the way it was set up with constant jumping back and forth between different places and times. Plus the whole "graphic novel within a graphic novel" subplot would be nearly impossible to integrate into a film version and have it make sense to the casual viewer.

    3. Sharessa


      Well, they could DO it pretty easily if they had enough time. The problem would be conveying the various metaphors in it without confusing half the audience who are then wondering why there is some guy reading a comic book in the middle of the movie.

      Funny you should say that. That WAS going to be the ending but it was someone decided it was a bit much (I'd say that line was crossed with the Spiked dildo XO ) also Morgen Freeman was going to shoot Kevin Spacey (and say some kickass lines while doing so) but Pitt insisted that he was going to be the one to do it.

  6. I have this strange nostalgic fetish for VHS movies. Maybe it's just the fact that I grew up during the 1990s and I hate to see that part of my youth just go to waste, or maybe it's the fact that the little 12" TV I own is like ten years old and has a built-in VCR. Either way, I've amassed a nice little collection of VHS tapes that I take with me everywhere I go for more than a few days at a time that I am still adding to constantly. Just today, I stopped at the local Exchange and bought 9 more movies at $1 apiece, and it inspired me to catalogue my collection:

    The Abyss
    Air Force One
    American History X
    Animal House
    Army of Darkness
    Babar: The Movie
    Billy Madison
    Bull Durham
    A Charlie Brown Christmas
    A Christmas Story
    Con Air
    Eight Men Out
    Event Horizon
    Field Of Dreams
    Forrest Gump
    The Fugitive
    Home Alone
    Independence Day
    Jerry Maguire
    The Jungle Book (live action)
    Jurassic Park
    Jurassic Park: The Lost World
    The Land Before Time
    Major League
    The Matrix
    Men In Black
    The Mummy
    The Mummy Returns
    The Natural
    The Patriot
    Pulp Fiction
    Space Jam
    Robin Hood (animated)
    Romancing The Stone
    Saving Private Ryan
    Snake Eyes
    Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan
    Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home
    Star Trek V: The Final Frontier
    Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country
    Star Trek: First Contact
    Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace
    Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back (I can't find the other two and it's really pissing me off)
    Tommy Boy
    Toy Story
    Wayne's World
    The Wizard of Speed and Time


    Some of these I've had since I was a kid, others I've come across since I began my VHS revival a couple of years ago. Eventually, I want to reach the point where I have a nice, diverse collection of films, so that there's nothing really integral from my youth that I'm missing. Right now, there's about 20 more movies that I really would like to find, after which I think I would be satisfied. After all, videos tend to be somewhat unwieldy compared to today's technology and I would like this collection to be finite.

    However, I'm always open to suggestions. The only parameters are that it has to be something that came out before 2002, which when my family got its first device capable of playing DVDs, thus finally beginning to render my video cassettes obsolete. Apart from that, it just needs to be something that I could always put in and enjoy, a film that does well to represent its genre in the particular era in which it came out.

      Many CDs of mid-1960s albums are the stereo versions. Mono typically sounded better at that time until the industry "perfected" stereo (which is still arguable for a lot of later music). Stereo was new to most artists at the time, and they weren't sure how to get the most out of it, but mono was no problem.
      This is one reason many mono vinyl records from the mid sixties sound better than the stereo CD versions.

    3. Coopersville


      You know, the whole matter was covered by James Randi years ago.


    4. BoldEnglishman


      Hmm loudness war... maybe not entirely relevant to that article but I have noticed CD's becoming louder and louder as time goes by.

      I mean, like how NakedSnake is a big fan of AC/DC, I'm a big fan of Dream Theater. So as such, when I'm switching from album to album I notice these sound levels increase.

      Their debut album is relatively quiet, and I always have to increase the volume from what it was previously on (mostly because alot of the music I listen to is post-1989). The second album is slightly more louder but not really noticeable. But then suddenly, come 1994 and you get the third album, there is a huge boost of volume... and every suceeding album does increase in volume, though sometimes not so evidently.

      It really annoys me actually because I'll put together a playlist on iTunes of different songs from different albums. When one song finishes and the next begins, it's like BANG and (while listening to headphones already at quite a high level) it's really frustrating. Having to quickly unzip everything to get to my iPod just to turn the damn thing down a bit.

  7. Holy shit this is fucking awesome. I can practically walk up to my doorstep.

  10. This phrase bothers me.

    I feel like if something is "cooked to order," that means it's cooked beforehand so when you order it, it's already there.

      Yes they do. Oddly enough, them, clam chowder, rice, mashed potatoes, and the baked potatoes are the only things we keep sitting around cooked. The rest is cooked as people order it as per the thread topic. The lobsters are the only fresh thing. We kill them back in the kitchen.

      So those lobsters in the tank aren't just for show after all.

  13. A few days ago I drove around the city with a friend and took about a million pictures, which I managed to pare down to three Facebook albums. I live in a pretty awesome town so I thought I'd share these for anyone who's interested in photography/cities/skylines/architecture/parks/etc.

  14. And now I'm not going to be able to sleep for a good while.

    "Bully" is the name, by the same guy who did "Kids" (which coincidentally was the most fucked up movie I'd seen before tonight).

    Most movies don't have this kind of impact on me, but the fact the whole thing actually happened is really chilling, and Larry Clark makes it seem even more real.

      See Larry Clark's follow-up to Bully, Ken Park. It's basically art porn due to the actual sex scenes that take place (nothing left to the imagination). Those conservative Aussies even banned it from been screened in theatres.

    4. aca


      Finally, someone else who agrees that Bully is the most fucked up movie ever.

      If you've ever wanted to see 10 year olds drinking 40s, people dropping acid and playing mortal combat, a bunch of kids killing a person they don't even know and then feeding him to the crabs, then see Bully

      It seriously kicks your ass.

      Short version:
      Media, news, laws, and social mores could all conform to your specific wants and needs. The reason they don't is because you people haven't contributed enough revenue (or caused enough damage) to make the change worthwhile to those who can effect these changes, as their only real obligation is to their investors. By default, the fact that you continue not to do so means that you're OK with that.

      I suppose I should start watching a lot of TV again to recondition myself to be able to laugh at crotchshots, believe the whitewashed bullshit and lies the "news" reports, obsess over every minute detail of celebrities' lives, be entertained by moronic sitcoms and faked reality, and of course last but not least buy things that are advertised. Despite staying away from watching TV myself, I unfortunately get to see and hear more than I want and there's much more info on the internet anyway. I make no claims to be normal and I don't want to be normal if that's what it is. Here's an idea. Go outside. Get involved in things that are actually interesting.

      If you're addressng me I do plenty of those things already, for instance I organise walks/hikes for foreign students around the countryside here at uni. You're right to encourage those things but at no stage does doing one thing proclude an informed interest in something else. Yes you are quite entitled to stay away from the mass media, and a lot of your cynicisms are probably true, that doesn't take away from the fact that if you bring hardened cynicism to anything in life you risk judging all kinds of books by their covers. It's too easy to assume everything out there is dross, which is what I think a few people are guilty of in this thread.

      And you know once in a while things that are advertised tend to be pretty good, I could cite Doom as an example :P

      I don't need no tag to know that I am viciously attractive. :D

  22. Just to prove I'm cooler than Ralphis I'm going to post a blog about how I DIDN'T go to prom because I'm way too cool for such things. Instead, I went to pictures before prom, and then hung out with my girlfriend until she had to be home. Then I went to after-prom. Tons more fun, much fuller wallet.

    Actually I didn't go because my girlfriend's parents are lame and decided she shouldn't go (for a multitude of reasons), but I still probably enjoyed myself more the way things went.

    Pics if anyone cares.

      There's a three-year safety cushion in Pennsylvania. I've only got two years and ten months on her.
