level 45, a bad ass level for sure.


I'm your average Afro-American fetus. For example: I enjoy basketball, I'm rather good when I play too, but I'm much too busy scratching my horrific cracked skin these days.

From what I've heard of Load and ReLoad, they aren't bad. The Memory Remains, Fuel, Hero of the Day... I'm not sure about the rest though. You should definitely get S&M, however.

Heh, S&M isn't that great imo.

AWESOME, I'm not the only one who thinks that way!

My brother keeps giving me critics for "not dowloading music" that way. I like buying album, as a form of supporting the artist and because it feels good to have the album in a material form, not just a bunch of computer data. =)

Lol @your brother. :P

70s rock is good. I've recently tried listen to other bands from that era from my dad's music after having all his music on my iPod. The main two I've listened to so far are The Police and Status Quo. The Police are rather interesting but I find Status Quo to be too repetitive and lacks a good amount of killers.

Led Zeppelin is a great band. Too bad most people only know Stairway to Heaven, though. I mean, it's an awesome song, but Led Zep have so many other great songs...
Also, what Bahamut says about Status Quo is similar what I heard other people say about them. So it must be true. ^^
Best Rock Band from the 70's is Deep Purple, though.

And back to list-making, I suppose.

Anyway, today was "Windows 7" day here. My brother and my father installed it into our previous laptop, which had Vista (a "crime", according to them). Indeed, it runs a lot faster. My brother (graduated in computer engineering) did most of the job: downloading stuff, installing stuff, wireless-ing everything... When he was about to finish everything (video codecs, I think), a huge lighting strikes, almost toasting this desktop I'm typing on.

Luckily, it "came back" to life, after good five tries of turning on, bleeping and shutting down. And yeah, it has a no-break on, but apparently the lighting was right into our neighbour, and the no-break didn't resist it. Kinda scary to see my dad panicking at it, until it came back. =P

I better back up everything in here before it stops working completely...

Listening to:
Metallica - All Nightmare Long; Cyanide; The Day That Never Comes

Congrats to:

Personally I think they're one of the best bands of the past decade. Not that that's saying much, but out of their last two albums (Eyes Open and A Hundred Million Suns) I could point out at least 14 songs which I really like.

I did listen to a great part of Eyes Open, but I've yet to check A Hundred Million Suns. Either way, they're a great band.

They opened the U2 concert you attended, didn't they?

HEY THERE!

Hello!

And even better, on a new laptop, which is really smooth. This shouldn't take too long, I think.
Awesome, does this mean better performance for TF2? :)

Ehh... not really. =P

As far as I understood my dad. he's planning to make that laptop for his and my mother's exclusive use (a.k.a putting it into their bedroom). I can't say anything, we have two reasonable PCs for our use now. Although none of them runs TF2 correctly, they're still working, aren't they?

HOWEVER, my dad mentioned getting another laptop, similar to the new one, to replace this desktop. He's worried about it stop working permanently. I think he should get a new desktop instead. But who knows, anything could be better than this one.

It's a great DVD. It's been roaming around our house for a while, and I never watched it entirely. And lately, I've become more interested in Led Zeppelin and 70's rock bands. Thank Eric Clapton's biography for that. :P
70s rock is good. I've recently tried listen to other bands from that era from my dad's music after having all his music on my iPod. The main two I've listened to so far are The Police and Status Quo. The Police are rather interesting but I find Status Quo to be too repetitive and lacks a good amount of killers.

I've never heard of Status Quo, but Police is a pretty interesting band. They even played here in Brazil recently, in their reunion tour.

But really, I think the 70s were the greatest decade for music. So many new genres and ideas... It's hard to define the most influential one (remember, The Beatles had already ended their career).

How about News Reporter? *crowd boos at Bahamut*

Hey, not a bad idea. Since he deals with the interesting stuff around here ;)

Oh, and envy me for having that hat. :P
I'd scream but on the other hand, I don't mind which Pyro hat I get. It can be the beanie which looks funny or it could be the Engineer's missing glove. I didn't particularly care about the glove hat until I came across a similarity between that and Feathers McGraw from Wallace and Gromit.

Hahahaha, yeah, it reminds Feathers. I remember watching three episodes from Wallace & Gromit in my English classes. :)

But I'd rather the Brigade helm. I like the beanie, but not so much for the glove. Either way, now I want the Fancy Fedora, for the Spy. 2 refined metals and growing!

Heh, I really like respawn now. It was weird at fisrt, since i was more used with CS, where you die... and that's pretty much it. But now, I can happily die and think, "meh, I'll have to wait 10 more seconds :)".
From the sounds of it, I'll need to give Counter-Strike some time to get used to whenever I start playing it. I'm just so used to how TF2 works with respawning with the exception of Arena and PropHunt where no respawning is more appropriate. I mean, imagine if props kept respawning and you had to keep finding them. O_O

Hahahaha, that wouldn't be the best idea. But yeah, spawn-camping would be useful then. =P

Oh, and are you going to give a go at CS?

Now, aiming for best or worst mod 2010? :P
Forget worst mod, UltraBear will only win it again. :P

Heh, I guess that's all he does, aside form hibernating the whole year.

Interesting. Doesn't sound too bad for them all in all. What about their history? How did it come to be?

Ah, they suffered a lot. But they played a prominent part in our culture.

When the Portuguese got here in 1500, they didn't do much for 30 years (aside from stealing Brazilwood). They used them as slaves, along with Africans that were also enslaved during their stops in Africa. Cutting sugar cane, mining... all the hard work.

They were released, eventually (I don't remember the year of the abolition, though). Since then, they have the option to live live they used to or to join the "common" society. Either way, some habits, culinary, tools... were adopted by pretty much everyone.

Same thing for albums. It just feels good when you have the real thing in your hands, not just a mere copy. Too bad most games in here are really expensive. This is why there's so much piracy in here (and the PS3 not being very popular =P).

You bastard! :P

I wake up and the street lights are still turned on. It's really tough now that we're in DST. But yeah, at least the day are longer. =)

Led Zeppelin is a great band. Too bad most people only know Stairway to Heaven, though. I mean, it's an awesome song, but Led Zep have so many other great songs...

Indeed. There are some great songs by Led Zep that are underrated, like Rock and Roll, Back Dog, Moby Dick (best drum solo ever)... But NO, it just had to be Stairway, all the time! >:(

Also, what Bahamut says about Status Quo is similar what I heard other people say about them. So it must be true. ^^

Hahahaha, really? Well, I won't even search for them, then!

Best Rock Band from the 70's is Deep Purple, though.

Another band that is mostly recognized by one song (one riff, actually). Deep Purple also has great songs, but Smoke on the Water blanks them most of the times.

Still, I'd rather Led Zeppelin. :)

It's one of those that I get caught up in trying to sing the backing and lead vocals at the same time with. Still, a big of encouragement for the guys and we can make that work :D

If you're still taking suggestions, listen to "Walking A Line". It's a B-Side, but it's an excellent song as well. I dare you to scream like Dave Grohl. ;)

One of the very few Foos songs I haven't heard... I'll search for it.

Less than 10,000 points away from me. I'm getting close to 120,000 total points but I won't get it until mid-March. Yes, I may be about 500 short but I can only rely on EXP and posts for now.

I know - I'm just frustrated, I guess. With how things look, particularly on Clock Day, we do need to get a bunch of submissions removed, but with Tom's "There's some good in everything" attitude, we can't really move, which can't be helped - it is his website, after all.

If by changing opinions over time, you mean finding new things and liking them, then yes.

70s rock is good. I've recently tried listen to other bands from that era from my dad's music after having all his music on my iPod.

I'm not the biggest Led Zeppelin fan out there. Infact, I've only been able to be fully acquainted with the first four albums. However, I at least acknowledge a lot of songs they made besides Stairway to Heaven.

Also, what Bahamut says about Status Quo is similar what I heard other people say about them. So it must be true. ^^

Wow, I thought mine would be a one man's opinion. I guess I could enjoy them more if I had a compilation album and showed their highlights.

Yep, twice actually. They were also one of the two opening acts of U2's tour in 2005. And I've seen them live on a festival last summer, which was probably the best performance I've seen of them yet. But that's most likely because they were actually the main act and not just a supporting act, so they could make more use of the stage and all.

Anyway, if you like them you should probably check out A Hundred Million Suns. Although it's not as good as Eyes Open in my opinion, it's got a couple of nice songs and is a pretty good album altogether. I especially liked the last 16-minute track of the album consisting of three parts called "The Lightning Strike". They also had some nice animations for that song during the live performance (could be one of the reasons why I like it so much).

Games aren't really cheap here as well. Most stores charge games 70 Euro or above, even when they are over a year old. So I buy most of the games off the internet, where they are usually a lot cheaper, especially in the UK. Also the british pound is relatively weak compared to the Euro (well, the pound is still worth more, but it used to be a lot more than it is now) so even new games sometimes are 40 Euro cheaper in the UK then they are here!
Plus, the UK doesn't get stupid cut games like we get in Germany most of the time (yeah, green blood in horror games... or no blood at all like in Resident Evil 3!).

Oh.. back to topic. I used to have pirated copies of many games, but I threw them all out one day and bought the original games. I still download music from time to time, though, but I also buy a lot more albums than "back in the days" now.

I have to get up a 6AM to be at school by 7:10, what are you talking about... :P
Lol @you! :P
I'm a lazy student. You can't expect me to wake up before 11AM! :P
You bastard! :P

I wake up and the street lights are still turned on. It's really tough now that we're in DST. But yeah, at least the day are longer. =)

DST? I wish... :P
It's not that hard to wake up when the street lights are still turned on here. ^^
But at least the days are getting longer now. :P

Best Rock Band from the 70's is Deep Purple, though.
Another band that is mostly recognized by one song (one riff, actually). Deep Purple also has great songs, but Smoke on the Water blanks them most of the times.

Yeah, it's a shame. Painter is really good as well as is Speed King or Child in Time.

Or do your opinions change over time because you get more and more Exp? :P
If by changing opinions over time, you mean finding new things and liking them, then yes.

Well, if you find new things then you don't change your opinion. You form a view on something new, not change your opinion alltogether. And how's that related to the amount of Exp you have? :P

Also, what Bahamut says about Status Quo is similar what I heard other people say about them. So it must be true. ^^
Wow, I thought mine would be a one man's opinion. I guess I could enjoy them more if I had a compilation album and showed their highlights.

I've heard at least 4 or 5 similar complaints from various people that Status Quo do have some nice songs, but overall they just sound too similar on all their albums.

Sadly, I have Vista and I have noticed some slow issues with it. If Windows 7 is said to be faster, then I will consider getting it. However, I need to think about it before going ahead with installing a new OS onto this laptop.

You should get Windows 7, it's really worth it.
I'm still using XP, though. No need for me to change the OS right now. And I tried out Win 7, but the differences between 7 and XP are just too big. What where they thinking when they took out the classical look of the start menue?
I have to admit though, the search function in the start menu of Win 7 is great.

I'm not much a fan of Led Zep in general, but yes, John Bonham is one of the best drummers. Moby Dick and Bonzo's Montreux are great. I'm more of a Neal Peart man myself though.

It's not, strictly speaking, an achievement but it seems that today my posts per day went back up to 6.66 for the first time since about this time last year, when it was about 10.5 per day.

When the Portuguese got here in 1500, they didn't do much for 30 years (aside from stealing Brazilwood). They used them as slaves, along with Africans that were also enslaved during their stops in Africa. Cutting sugar cane, mining... all the hard work.

They were released, eventually (I don't remember the year of the abolition, though). Since then, they have the option to live live they used to or to join the "common" society. Either way, some habits, culinary, tools... were adopted by pretty much everyone.

That doesn't sound too bad all in all compared to other indigenous nations. If it was just slavery it might have been abolished around the late 18th early 19th centuries.

- Possible achievement coming soon (but it shall be overwhelmed by Coop's next achievement);

- I hate when I see ads saying "MP10, MP11" and above. I can understand up to MP5s, but after that, isn't it easier just calling it a cellphone?

- Super Bowl tonight! I'm not too excited, though. I'd rather today's Capitals victory over the Penguins, marking their 14th straight victory! :)

Listening to:
Sonata Arctica - Fade to Black (Metallica cover, an excellent one, by the way)

I'm trying to get the guys to play Nothing Else matters as a part of our repertoire, since we need something that effectively has vocal solos, since we cater to everything else :P

Hey, try convincing them, it'll sure be a great addition to your band's repertoire. I mean, everyone knows Nothing Else Matters, so you can always shout "sing along now!" :)

Oh yeah, I want to hear that one! Hey Johnny Park is one of my favourite Foo Fighters' song, oddly. :)
It's one of those that I get caught up in trying to sing the backing and lead vocals at the same time with. Still, a big of encouragement for the guys and we can make that work :D

It must be hard then, since the back vocals are more melodic and the main ones are more "dry", mostly in the chorus.

If you're still taking suggestions, listen to "Walking A Line". It's a B-Side, but it's an excellent song as well. I dare you to scream like Dave Grohl. ;)
One of the very few Foos songs I haven't heard... I'll search for it.

Give it a listen: I have this one in a "One by One" special edition, that has some B-sides and a couple of live songs. It's worth trying it, since it's a quite heavy song, but with a catchy chorus. =)

Indeed. He already tried making things harder for collabs, in a "more authors, better flash" attitude. Really, the normal threshold could be raised a little. He should listen to the community's ideas more often.

It's really good, it's much lighter than Vista is. And I believe that most hardware compatible with Vista works with W7 as well. At least on our laptop, only one thing was left out, a "card reader", I think.

Because Psycho Mantis has special powers the Soldier doesn't have.

Hey, not a bad idea. Since he deals with the interesting stuff around here ;)
Have you even seen how terrible he is at news reporting? Everyone hates that guy!

But since he's the only reporter around, what else can we do? Get S-k-y to "tweet" the winners? =P

Of course but I may as well wait until I get onto C. I'm close to finishing off A but Oddworld got in my way. However, I could cheat and say it is part of my A-Z Steam games challenge and say Abe's Oddysee and Exoddus start with A. XD

Hahahaha, cheat for CS as well, then.

Yeah, you can't really tell if someone's concert is really good if they're only the opening act. The concert is shorter and the crowd is probably "saving" themselves for the main act.

I especially liked the last 16-minute track of the album consisting of three parts called "The Lightning Strike". They also had some nice animations for that song during the live performance (could be one of the reasons why I like it so much).

Nice, I'll check The Lighting Strike. I usually like songs that are divided in many parts, I think the bands tend to put more effort in them. Muse's Exogenesis Symphony and Dream Theater's "Trial of Tears" are good examples of this.

I don't know... sure some songs sound nice with the orchestra, but most of the time it just doesn't fit so well.

Yeah, I agree. I also don't know why they included so many songs from their recent albums (at the time). I mean, it's an special occasion, you don't play with an orchestra every day. But I agree, some songs don't really go well with the orchestra.

Indeed. It's not really what the crowd is paying for, and they usually can't make any use of the stage either. Plus I'm guessing that they wouldn't really want to go all out as a supporting act anyway. They probably want to save that for their own concerts/fans.

I especially liked the last 16-minute track of the album consisting of three parts called "The Lightning Strike". They also had some nice animations for that song during the live performance (could be one of the reasons why I like it so much).
Nice, I'll check The Lighting Strike. I usually like songs that are divided in many parts, I think the bands tend to put more effort in them. Muse's Exogenesis Symphony and Dream Theater's "Trial of Tears" are good examples of this.

You should check out Pink Floyd - Shine On You Crazy Diamond then. It's a ~24 minute song divided in nine parts of which the first five are played at the beginning of their album* and the last four at the end. It's quite a relaxing and interesting song to listen to.

And actually, Pink Floyd have made quite a lot of 10+ minute songs split in several parts. If you have never listened to them, you might want to give them a try someday. If you like Dream Theater and Muse, I guess you will probably like Pink Floyd as well.

I'm not much a fan of Led Zep in general, but yes, John Bonham is one of the best drummers. Moby Dick and Bonzo's Montreux are great. I'm more of a Neal Peart man myself though.

Ah, Bonham is one of the best drummers ever. He's influenced many modern drummers. But Neal Pert is excellent as well. I think he has a lifetime award for best drummer, because he kept winning it every year. :P

The thing is, they were under slavery for about 4 centuries. And about 70% of the tribes which were here when the Portuguese arrived doesn't exist anymore.

Which achievement is this? 24k Blams?

Exactly. As of now, you're 1 Blam away from it. =)

In what sport, exactly?
Rugby - the only sport that matters to a Welshman.

Ah, right. At first, I thought about football, but there were league games that day, so... Plus, Wales only have Ryan Giggs as player, I think. :P

I shall be making a few phone calls to Wales today in order to rub salt into the wounds :P

Of course, that one of the best parts of a rivalry victory!

Hey, try convincing them, it'll sure be a great addition to your band's repertoire. I mean, everyone knows Nothing Else Matters, so you can always shout "sing along now!" :)
That could only be fun if we get people turning up to the gigs we play :P

Why, the bartender must know the song , right? ;P

No worries, from small pubs to Live Aid gigs in a few years time. At least is what Eric Clapton said.

Hahahaha, of course. Make sure your ban messages cause the less butthurt possible, so you won't even be nominated.
We'll see. Sometimes, my wit gets the better of even me, so it can be difficult ;)

No, save that wit for the lock messages, where the enjoyment is public. ;)

It must be hard then, since the back vocals are more melodic and the main ones are more "dry", mostly in the chorus.
I'm an artist when it comes to voices - everyone knows that... At least I thought they did

Sure, you are gifted with the voice talent... but can you pull two different voices at the same time?

WITH ONE MOUTH? =OO

Soldier didn't know anything about port 2.

What now, play with the arrows instead? =P

But since he's the only reporter around, what else can we do? Get S-k-y to "tweet" the winners? =P
How about Bahamut7? He handles the Character Battle polls very well. :P

Ah, of course! Well, we know who will handle the awards, if they ever happen.

And he gets my vote for "favourite Bahamut alt"!

Indeed. It's not really what the crowd is paying for, and they usually can't make any use of the stage either. Plus I'm guessing that they wouldn't really want to go all out as a supporting act anyway. They probably want to save that for their own concerts/fans.

Indeed. It's just a warm-up to the big thing. Sometimes the crowd doesn't even know the band, which was my case in the Metallica concert. I had no idea what Hybria was about. =P

Nice, I'll check The Lighting Strike. I usually like songs that are divided in many parts, I think the bands tend to put more effort in them. Muse's Exogenesis Symphony and Dream Theater's "Trial of Tears" are good examples of this.
You should check out Pink Floyd - Shine On You Crazy Diamond then. It's a ~24 minute song divided in nine parts of which the first five are played at the beginning of their album* and the last four at the end. It's quite a relaxing and interesting song to listen to.

Hahahaha, I know that song! My dad has Wish You Were Here, we listen to it in his car every now and then. I'm a Pink Floyd fan, I don't know why I didn't mention them in the long songs thing.

Dogs isn't split, but it's a 17-minute epic song. Another brick in the wall has three parts, although they're split in the album. Pink Floyd is one of my favourite bands! =)

...Plus, the UK doesn't get stupid cut games like we get in Germany most of the time (yeah, green blood in horror games... or no blood at all like in Resident Evil 3!).
Really? Wow, that's a bit too much!

It got a bit better in recent years, but it's still kind of rare that a game is released uncut in Germany. Ah well, since importing is much cheaper plus my english skills are quite good I don't mind too much.
Hell, I even played the japanese version of Resident Evil 3. Couldn't read the texts, but the voice acting is still in english. ^^

Also, it's weird that only their drummer remains from their original line-up. =P

Yeah, that's really weird. ^^
Even weirder than his glasses he always wears. XD

But that doesn't make your opinions more important than mine. :P
Oh yes it does. More EXP means more important opinion. :P

LOL! Nothing more to say about that. :P

If by changing opinions over time, you mean finding new things and liking them, then yes.
Well, if you find new things then you don't change your opinion. You form a view on something new, not change your opinion alltogether. And how's that related to the amount of Exp you have? :P
You were talking about EXP and opinions. Also, no, my opinions don't change. MANOWAR RULES!

You started talking about discovering new things. And I asked how this is related to the amount of Exp you have. :P

Also Manowar sucks monkey balls
Wow, I thought mine would be a one man's opinion. I guess I could enjoy them more if I had a compilation album and showed their highlights.
I've heard at least 4 or 5 similar complaints from various people that Status Quo do have some nice songs, but overall they just sound too similar on all their albums.
Yeah, I can name Rocking All Over the World, Whatever You Want...Uhh, that's it.

In the army now is great as well.

Because Psycho Mantis has special powers the Soldier doesn't have.
Because Psycho Mantis read the mind of all who where going to vote!
We'll see how he does in the next round. Will he win the whole thing? Can Psycho Mantis see who will win the second Alternative Character Battle?!

I bet he can. But I doubt he will win it.

Stupid soldier. The colonel didn't tell him?
