  1. "Yes, I have smoked crack cocaine. Probably in one of my drunken stupors, probably approximately about a year ago.”
  2. I've fallen behind, so I'll catch up a bit. First, three loud songs. First, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Sweet Home Alabama https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4uUQBC3J-7Y Second, The Flaming Lips, It Overtakes Me https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B4O7aI87E3g Third, Twisted Sister, I Wanna Rock https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SRwrg0db_zY (Extra no-points if you can tell me what ties them together!)
  3. Wee, sleekit beastie I will kill your whole goddam Furry family. (We have mice, apparently)
  4. Trains - Folsom Prison Blues - Johnny Cash Planes - Back in the U.S.S.R. - The Beatles Automobiles - Thunderkiss '65 - White Zombie
  5. "'39," from Queen's "A Night at the Opera." "Shipping Up to Boston", by the Dropkick Murphys "Wooden Ships", by Crosby Stills and Nash I don't recommend this as a music set, but they are my three favorite songs that mention ships.
  6. I had slain my enemy. Killed him, not murdered - he had it coming. He was a villain, a monster among men, and my revenge was overdue. My revenge was not a dish served cold, however. I cooked substantial portion of him into a meatloaf and ate him. This is unsettling as dreams go. The worst part: He was delicious. Best meatloaf I ever had.
  7. Macklemore - The Heist AWOLnation - Megalithic Symphony Jonathon Coulton
  8. Depeche Mode's new album is streaming on iTunes, and I am listening to it. Takes me back. I want to wear black and kiss a girl with a Chelsea haircut who's mouth tastes like cigarettes.
  9. OK, I'm tuning in late, but I have three important soundtrack songs to share. Here they are. "Gimme the Prize (Kurgan's Theme.)" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EZQUVZKrH3I "Everybody Needs Somebody" "I'm Alright"
  10. Re: A Thread for Random Musings I thought that when I grew up I'd be Judd Nelson or John Cusack. Instead I'm Judge Reinhold. What the hell happened?
  11. Re: Monday Morning Music Trios Your Can't Bring Me Down, by Suicidal Tendencies I Am The One You Warned Me Of, from Blue Oyster Cult's ill-fated (yet entirely awesome) album, Imaginos The Joker, by The Steve Miller Band
  12. Re: The "Nice Happy" Thread Just over 100,000 words in the first draft of my novel.
  13. Re: "Neat" Pictures Holy cow it works.
  14. Re: "Neat" Pictures Part of what impresses me is that after the landing, he does not vomit.
  15. Re: Quote of the Week From My Life. My number one son might have said "My aspergers," or "My Autism," or "because I'm an aspie," or even "My aspergerishness." He did not. He said "My aspieness." Number two son: "You said penis!" Number one son: "No I didn ... Ohmygod."
  16. No, really. They found it a while ago. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/49999550/ns/technology_and_science-science/t/deadly-caves-where-it-all-ended-maybe-hades-began/#.ULl4r4NlHa4 If you can't find a hook in that...
  17. Re: Archery shields? I suppose an archer could devise a wearable rig to make the central hand-grip fit onto a hard sleeve of some sort, so the shield could be worn on one arm without cutting off circulation or flopping about while still being able to be held in the hand of the other arm. Alternatively, maybe archer's bucklers would have a different handle somehow to make that a quicker trade. Cap's aspis shield is held in the left hand or the right, albeit with a bracelet in addition to the handle for the left. A buckler for an archer would need to be a weird forearm guard for most of its life.
  18. Re: Archery shields? (Arise my thready minion! Rise from the dead to stalk the night!) Thread Necromancy is never pretty, but it happens. So I've run into this buckler and bow issue, and it's only an issue because I'm picky. Games are for fun, and verisimilitude and wizardry shouldn't stand too close to one another, but here I am anyway. You can't shoot a bow with a buckler on your bow-holding-arm, I believe, because it may get in the way of the arrow and the bow-string. That puts it on the arrow drawing arm, which is also the dominant hand. So? So you don't carry your shield on your dominant arm in melee combat. In fact, a buckler is typically carried in the fist instead of hung on the forearm. Outside of fantasy gaming it just isn't the way to use the darn things. The round hoplite shield, the aspis, and the targe were all a good bit larger than the buckler, which was about the size of a personal pizza. It looks kind of odd on a forearm. If I was an archer I'd wear it cheerfully, since it's better than blocking an arrow with my naked arm, but in melee blocking with that on your arm will earn you a hook-hand if you're lucky. Bucklers in use: But, to change from ranged combat to melee would also mean changing from a small shield lashed to a forearm to a small shield held in the fist of the other arm. Probably the same action cost as drawing a weapon? Of course, you're trying to draw another weapon at the same time with the arm the buckler is strapped to. Skill levels in quick-draw. Suddenly it makes sense.
  19. Re: What Fantasy/Sci-Fi book have you just finished? Please rate it... Ditto. The other two books in this series are Dreadnought and Ganymede. I'm about half-way through Ganymede right now. These are fun stuff, with decently three-dimensional characters, many of whom happen to be female. Good stuff all around.
  20. Re: Creepy Pics. Some old friends of mine, with the best halloween costume idea.
  21. Re: The "Nice Happy" Thread I did that a while ago, and I'll be damned if I quit my precious precious coffee again.
  22. Re: A Thread for Random Musings In an instant the bullet started and finished its pilgrimage, ending its journey in the wainscotting, dragging a red constellation along with it to create a myth of murder on the wall.
  23. Re: The "Nice Happy" Thread Nah - he's Aspie enough that he's congenitally disabled regarding sarcasm. He's so damn literal that most puns start by confusing him.
