Movies and TV / Goodbye you graceful &$^%#$

Yesterday George Carlin died. I don't know who around here was a fan of his, but I loved his standup and the movies he was in.

I even grew up with him on Thomas the Tank Engine as the Conductor.

You will be greatly missed sir.

Here's his info about where/when:

If you're a fan of his work, go on and say hi. This really only applies to those out in the Utah.

Site News / SDCC (San Diego Comic Con)

I'm trying to go. I want to go very badly. I think I can do it too. It's in July, 24-27, which is pretty much my birthday "weekend."

But anyway, I wanted to see if there was anyone else around here who'd like to go and split the cost of a hotel room? That'd be cool if I could find someone who'd want to. PM me or leave a post or something.

Video Games / Psychonauts

Gametap is delivering Psychonauts for free on their service for free until December 31. I've heard great things about this game and am going to give it a go.

Whoa whoa whoa, hold the phones buddy-boy! Where's everyone's talk about this movie? It came out last friday and was fantastic. I'm going to plug a friends review of the movie here.

I did enjoy the movie a lot and I thought it was a pretty good adaptation. Nearly flawless. There were a few bits that were cut from the original story, but overall, I can't complain.

What did everyone else who saw this think? And if you haven't seen it yet, why not?

This actually looks pretty good. Not as... well, lame, as Gaiman's last movie.

Everything Else / NY Comic Con
« on: January 29, 2007, 12:02:15 AM »
So, is anyone around here planning to go to the NY CC in NYC this February? It's the 23-25 and I've already got myself and 3 friends going. Should be fun times, since I've gotten back into comics and have been keeping headway with a lot of different titles and whats been going on.

And for anyone who is interested, but can't go, anything you'd like me to accomplish for you? Like ask a question of someone if I see them, or get an autograph?

Movies and TV / The Super Mario Bros. Super Show!
« on: January 04, 2007, 02:17:38 AM »
Ok, who remembers this show? I did the instant I saw the DVD set. This was some great television that came straight out of the end of the 80's and made it into the 90's. I mean, c'mon, the Mario rap is some pretty good stuff. And then there were the live action skits that were just... honestly, terrible.

But the best part is the cartoon. I mean, when most of the soundtrack is ripped directly from the video games, how can you go wrong? When the physics of everything makes you question your existence, and you find yourself laughing even harder then you may have when you were a child watching the same thing, where's the harm?

I swear, best $20 I've spent in a long time.

Hey Jeffe, I've bought some big ole pork ribs and would like your suggestion on preparing and cooking them. Please respond soon!

Role-Playing Games / Lacuna (And a Question for Jeffe)
« on: November 13, 2006, 05:35:21 PM »
Hey jeffe, do you have the pdf of this game on your computer? (Any possibility that you'd be able to send it to me too??)

I'm going to be running a game of this over mIRC. Possibly long-term-ish, or maybe a few short sessions. We'll see.

Music / Cool Concerts
« on: November 08, 2006, 06:10:16 PM »
Alright, starting a topic. Making coffee, getting busy. Anyways,

here you should discuss recent concerts you've been to and how cool it was/was not. Or if you remember some really awesometacular concert you went to way back when you were someone else's age, then mention it.

Last night, Tuesday the 7th of November, I went to Toronto to see Bob Dylan in concert. Yes, it was pretty cool. Also, the Foo Fighters opened for him with an acoustic set. It was a rocking fun evening.

Of course, as you may expect, Dylan was mostly unintelligble, aside from when he would really kick into the chorus. I only knew so much of the songs he was singing because I've heard them before.

The band that played with him was pretty kicking, as the sound I think they were playing was a southern country-rock-blues kind of sound. It added a fresh turn to some oldies from songs like "Tangled Up in Blue" to "Maggie's Farm."

Foo Fighters played a good set too. He even played that one song where there's a lot of screaming, explaining afterwards that he usually doesn't play that in his acoustic sets since he doesn't play in arena's often and didn't want to upset the crowds in the smaller venues.

So yes, overall, good night.

Everything Else / Arborgeddon in Buffalo '06
« on: November 06, 2006, 05:19:47 PM »
This was the scene about 4 weeks ago in Buffalo as the snow had stopped falling, the trees had given up, and Buffalo was under about 2 feet of snow.

However, all the snow's gone now, and it's actually rather warm outside. Go figure.

Jeffe, or anyone else who may have some knowledge, if you know anything about five rings, or just some cool ninja names, give me a buzz/post it.

Jeffe, when you get this IM me or e-mail me or something. I have an idea for a podcast, and it should be rather simple and straightforward. I just wanted to talk with you about it since you are the forerunner around here on podcast technology, etc.

You will know the idea when you speak to me.
