Re: Random Thoughts! v2.0

Hope you guys are doin ok. Just been partying and spending far too much money in Sydney. But tomorrow that all ends, and i really try to get a job. Been scary at times, and have even thought about going home once or twice. The financial aspect brings so much pressure, never mind the fact that i am with my sister and her 2 friends who constantly talk abouy guys and sex. In Sydney, i cannot get a girl for shit, there are just far too many good looking guys here. But i need a job. Badily. But hope all is well, and i will try and check in more often :)

Re: Random Thoughts! v2.0

I think this describes the current atmosphere http://i1.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/newsfeed/000/353/279/e31.jpg

so let's shift gears. Still can't adjust back to Chicago time. I still wake up as if I'm still in London haha. And usually people say you will miss it later on when the holidays are over, but I'm kinda missing everyone and everything from there right now. Maybe I just need to adjust back and give it time, but It felt so much different (in a good way) when I was there.

Re: Things that pissed you off

This massacre happened on the opening day of The Hobbit; the Aurora, Colorado movie theater massacre was on the opening day of The Dark Knight Rises. Both killers were in their 20's, no criminal history, academically accomplished, from well-off, yet distant, families, loners, and drugged, with a history of mental illness.

And on this very same day, in Chengping, Henan, China, a guy broke into a school with a knife, injuring 22 children and one elderly woman. Same day. Two random attacks on children in school, opposite hemispheres.

What kind of a day out of Hell was December 14th, 2012?

Re: The Hobbit Trailer

Ah, you must not have read the book, so you might have expected it to be more like the Lord of the Rings. You see, The Hobbit, or There and Back Again, is a children's book, and it's self-consciously supposed to be the book Bilbo himself writes about his adventure within J.R.R. Tolkien's world, which Tolkien has "discovered" and "translated." Moreover, the book is full of songs. It is a musical, really. Being released in 1937, the same year as Disney's fairly tame first movie, you can see that musical fantasy was obviously the style of the time. Disney and Tolkien-verse naturally reinforced one another over the years, literally creating the fantasy genre as we know it today, including D&D, movies, video games, renaissance faires, etc, all post-World War II diversions that created the popular genre we know today.

So, it's not as if Peter Jackson just pulled "Disneyishness" straight out of his... imagination. In 1937, The Hobbit was more Disney than Disney.

Re: What movie are you watching right now?

It's funny because on one side you have the LOTR film fans bitching that it's too comical/songs feel out of place despite being straight from the book and on the other side you have the book fans bitching that it's got too many new changes (Azan; leader of the Orcs being the main antagonist, The Necromancer stuff being WAY extended with stuff straight from Unfinished Tales, new battle scenes, Radagast the Forest Wizard being in it despite never appearing in the novel, other scenes that weren't in the book like Galadriel, Elrond & Saruman meeting with Gandalf etc). To some extent, they're both right I guess, but being so anal about such a well made movie is secondary to me.

Poor Peter Jackson probably knew he was never going to please both, so settled for somewhere in the middle. Unfortunately, the reception has been very mixed. Even with all of its faults, it was a hugely enjoyable movie, to me.

And thanks, nice to see you too.

Re: What movie are you watching right now?

Being a fan of the Tolkien Novels and The Lord of the RIngs films, I thought the Hobbit was pretty good. One thing people tend not to understand is that books -- as they are written -- make pretty poor films. Look at the first two Harry Potter movies for instance; they're pretty much a direct translation from book to film... and they suck :lol: . From what I understand, this will be the last attempt at making films (at least from Peter Jackson & company) in middle earth and they want to go all out with as much material as they can. I can't imagine a couple years down the line we'll get The Silmarillion part one or anything.

To me, what's always been so appealing about middle earth is the intense amount of detail, it's never really been just "an unexpected journey" but more like a history lesson on foot. It doesn't help, however, that they started with the more interesting, and much more exciting of the books first. Assuming you've seen the first trilogy (and at this point who hasn't?) it ultimately makes the hobbit seem a little anti-climactic. So it makes sense that they want to pad the hobbit and make it more of an epic (which it really isn't). I do like how they're trying to set up the Lord of the Rings films in the Hobbit and I hope it will make for a nice flow from movie to movie, changing what was once a 12 hour experience into a good old fashion, 24 hours. :lol:

Oh, and I saw it in 24-fps because 48 sucks dick.

Re: Random Thoughts! v2.0

Well you will if you want their service. :lol:.

Absolutely this. When I'm out getting drunk, I always tip so I'll get seen quick-ish by the staff next time I'm up there. Same as when I drove a taxi. The tight-fisted customers (mostly) got absolutely no help from me helping them with their shopping etc...

Also, WTF is the deal with tips going into a big jar in some places? Surely it's a personal thing tipping someone? If some youngster who's working evenings/weekends etc. serves me my food well enough, I'd like them to have the money, not for it to be divided between all parties? And thus making each individual strive to be better if they want more money going to them. If they've been REALLY good (and if I've also been drinking), I strongly hint at them to put it straight into their own pocket and bypass "the jar", but then I am a bit of a cunt like that sometimes.

Kavinsky next album "Outrun" (Praises Yu Suzuki/Games)

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/8/83/Kavinksy_Outrun_Cover.jpg/618px-Kavinksy_Outrun_Cover.jpg

Here is a interview with Kavinsky, he's a popular French electro house artist. If anyone has seen the movie "Drive", then you've already heard his work. In this interview he's asked if his upcoming album "Outrun" is related to a racing game.

http://www.spin.com/articles/kavinsky-outrun-drive-skrillex-tattoo-interview


Is the title for Outrun a reference to the racecar video game?

Yes! It's a game I used to play a lot. It's from a very talented game creator, Yu Suzuki, who is the guy who also did Hang-On, Shenmue , so many. Each time he had a new concept or a new way to play — it was always a revolution for each game he did.

"ProtoVision" is the new single taken from Kavinsky's album "OutRun"

Well I didnt end up going to my friends to see him and his wife. I guess you could say I took the more exotic route and had one of my friends come over here. We talked about anime and video games alot and she is in the middle of playing tales of vesperia on 360 ^_^. And at the end of the night all I can really say is this, God damn black girls can give some mean head. Not like I didnt already know that but last night was a welcome reminder. Girl is a lil freak on top of being so awesome, maybe things can work out.

.....And today Ryudo was the bigger man.


Peter is just as crazy as he's accusing Ryudo of being. Maybe more considering how much repressed anger he apparently has over such trite matters.

You got something to say, just say it, stop hiding it behind spoiler tags. And trite matters? Like having most of the members here leaving/never posting anymore/hardly at all? I would hardly call that trite. There's certainly a lot of people on here who think otherwise, too. Like Riku says, this place is boring now thanks to the lack of activity. The damage is done. Members here are making sense with what they are saying. We (the staff) agree generally on most things, this especially.

If anybody else wants to speak up now, by all means do it, don't be afraid to do so. Talking it out is better than just not posting. I know, it's all drama, but it's better to just let it out then sweep it under the rug and wait for another outburst of some kind, imo.
