Listening to:
Opeth - Damnation
No growls on this album? Lame. The songs are still great. Awesome.

Yeah, but on most public football fields there are no nets in the goals. So...
Also, you don't have to shoot so hard, then you don't have to run so far to get the ball back. ^^
Well, I have played for football for a long time, so I can usually control myself and gently pass the ball in the corner to score a goal. But there are always those who think their chances of scoring increase if they shoot as hard as they can from as close by as they can :p

The only position I am good at is as a goalie. Also, if people think they have to shoot the ball extra hard, they should be the ones to get the ball back if it goes flying off the field. That'll teach them! ^^

Well that might not be a good example. But how about songs like Bohemian Rhapsody?
This song shouldn't be butchered by people who can't sing. :/
To be honest I only like to hear that song at the very end of the year when the Dutch top 2000 greatest songs ever ends and Bohemian Rhapsody holds the #1 spot once again.

Dutch Top 2000? With a name like that you'd expect them to play only dutch songs. :P

Lol. Had a Spanish busdriver on the way back maybe? Those guys can be pretty reckless.
No, it was the same drivers both times, I think they were from Poland. But on the way back we hadn't so many traffic jams. ^^
Lol. I don't know if I'd rather be with a Polish or with a Spanish driver... perhaps the Spanish one cause at least he might be sober :p

Hey, the bus drives where really cool guys.

In case there are any Polish users around here, j/k ;)

My ancestors are from poland! I should report you to an admin so you lose your mod status! >:(

Too bad I missed them when I had the chance to see them live. But I arrived so late at the festival I only could hear them, but didn't have the time to go to the stage. :(
You could have seen them live? That sucks! Hopefully they do something very soon.

IIRC they played on Friday afternoon. Since me and my friend had to work on Friday we only could start driving to the festival at around 2 pm. After a one hour drive we just arrived when they entered the stage. And since we had to unpack things, get our festival bracelets and so on, we simply missed the show. :(

Next will be E and the most obvious ones for that letter are Edguy, Ensiferum, Electric Wizard and Exodus. Let's see what you can do.
It's none of those. ;)
Which is good because those above are too obvious. Now I want to know who is your E artist.

I linked to a song of them at least once in LUL. ^^

I find that hard to believe. :P
Hey, it was back in 2004!
But when I saw them again in 2009 they sucked ass.
Maybe they were decent in 2004 but got lazy after a while and started sucking.

That may be true. We should simply ask them. "Hey guys, when exactly did you start to suck?"

Dammit, that isn't right.
It's a bit like Monty Burns. He's so ill, the only reason he is still alive is that the diseases are blocking themselves, so no disease can take any effect on him.

A shame though that is, you have to live by your decisions, I'm afraid.
Hey, it was nice while it lasted. I could have been in the top 5 for both B/P and total points if I didn't retire but I've made my decision to dedicate my time to other things rather than B/P'ing.

I'm not criticising you for it, though I perhaps lament it a little.

Being struck by lightning twice on top of a high building, from which you then fall off and die as a consequence of.

Yeah, if you call slaying the main adversary of the title not playing a significant role, then I suppose he is.
I was just very disappointed at how it was described in the book. It was something like: Everybody was fighting the war of five races, all hell broke loose AND IN THE MEANTIME Smaug flew over Laketown and Bard gets a lucky shot, kills him and afterwards he is crowned king. I can not remember Bard doing anything else in the plot.

I wonder how it will look in the film.

Was the master of Laketown evil-ish? I can't fully remember. It's been long since I read the book.
He was a coward and overcome with greed, he absconds with the cash.
Ah yes, that's what it was. Could be a good role for Stephen Fry, but I do hope he doesn't make it too comical.

Stephen is a good actor - just like Hugh Lawrie, his comedy partner. He's a great choice.

Like I already stated before: It used to be an end point. Enough reason for some people to quit BPing. However, nowadays you're hardly in the top 200 and still hardly matter in BP land. You gotta keep on going if you want to impress anyone.

But of course. I just miss the times when Supreme Commander was something special. Oh well, at least having over 70k B/P is a more impressive count.

Yeah, 100k is a nice way to stop.
Thinking of some cool numbers. Perhaps something like 30k:70k?

That's reversing what Denvish did.

Wow, 200 weeks? I expected him to get to you within two years providing both of you continue your B/P paces.
Yeah well my calculations are also provided we keep these rates constant. It might be shorter, but it will be a long time nonetheless. I will reach 100k somewhere late 2012 probably. I don't think he will have passed me yet by then.

And now I realise how slow the portal truly is.

You mean for the Reviewers List? I could, but it'd be too inaccurate with the people I have right now. I'd need more usernames to track.

I thought you'd be alright with it. How much does the one ranked at 150 have?

Hey, I'm patient as much as the next guy (unless it's D-o-D :P) but it would help if we made a little push with some consistency for the updates.
Indeed. But fortunately there's less point comparing your own gains on the VP list if you just don't miss any deposits. You'll always get the max possible anyway.

Eh, I just like to see the VP list going on. If we leave it for so long we'll get too many rank uppers for B/P.

Shake it baby!
Blow it out your ass!

Your ass, your face, what's the difference?

By the way, Ultor is another candidate right? Although if he keeps posting like he does, it'll still take him years to get those last 100 posts.

Mentioning Ultor just makes me laugh. He's trying so hard to get to 10k posts and even admits to aiming for it.

I would have figured that since it's so small that it was almost one big city with even your rural areas being somewhat populated.

But yeah, most live near the coast. Has a lot to do with the harbors and the trading companies of the 17th century I guess.

I would have figured so, since the Netherlands were a major power in trade back in the 1600s.

Exactly. As a small country we are very dependant of importing and trading.

But sometimes I guess it is also for the taste. You know... oranges from this country taste better than the oranges from that country.

In the US, it's more or less whatever is in season where ever they are from and at the lowest cost. Taste seems to be on the back burner.

6,666 saves. Already gone over that though, 30+ B/P is unusual for me, only bother to get about 20 most days.

The only position I am good at is as a goalie. Also, if people think they have to shoot the ball extra hard, they should be the ones to get the ball back if it goes flying off the field. That'll teach them! ^^

"You should've been a better goalie then."

To be honest I only like to hear that song at the very end of the year when the Dutch top 2000 greatest songs ever ends and Bohemian Rhapsody holds the #1 spot once again.
Dutch Top 2000? With a name like that you'd expect them to play only dutch songs. :P

No the idea is that its the top 2000 best songs ever made according to the people of Holland. Of course there are some Dutch songs in there, but for the wide majority its English music with some French and German songs here and there.

The top 5 tends to be something like:
Queen - Bohemian Rhapsody
The Eagles - Hotel California
Boudewijn de Groot - Avond
Led Zeppelin - Stairway to Heaven
Deep Purple - Child in Time

Occasionally Meat Loaf - Paradise by the Dashboard Light makes it or some other classic. It's a pretty nice list to listen to. It always gets broadcasted from Christmas to New Years (#1 ending when the clock strikes 12).

Lol. I don't know if I'd rather be with a Polish or with a Spanish driver... perhaps the Spanish one cause at least he might be sober :p
Hey, the bus drives where really cool guys.

That doesn't mean they were sober :p

In case there are any Polish users around here, j/k ;)
My ancestors are from poland! I should report you to an admin so you lose your mod status! >:(

FUUUUUUU-

Anything I can do to keep you quiet?

Thanks. Yes, it is one of my favorites ever since the redesign. I hope I can wear it a little longer (ie, the re-redesign shouldn't happen too soon...)

I don't know, it could happen any day now.

I can not remember Bard doing anything else in the plot.
I wonder how it will look in the film.

Hopefully it won't be lame. Also, hopefully they will show the war and won't do it like the book with Bilbo passing out and missing everything.

Ah yes, that's what it was. Could be a good role for Stephen Fry, but I do hope he doesn't make it too comical.
Stephen is a good actor - just like Hugh Lawrie, his comedy partner. He's a great choice.

He's definitely a good actor and the role does probably suit him.

But of course. I just miss the times when Supreme Commander was something special. Oh well, at least having over 70k B/P is a more impressive count.

That probably won't go out of style anytime soon.

Thinking of some cool numbers. Perhaps something like 30k:70k?
That's reversing what Denvish did.

Exactly. Might be a nice tribute.

Yeah well my calculations are also provided we keep these rates constant. It might be shorter, but it will be a long time nonetheless. I will reach 100k somewhere late 2012 probably. I don't think he will have passed me yet by then.
And now I realise how slow the portal truly is.

Yeah. 10,000 BP may not seem like much, but it is still a lot of points that will take most 0.5-1 year to acquire.

You mean for the Reviewers List? I could, but it'd be too inaccurate with the people I have right now. I'd need more usernames to track.
I thought you'd be alright with it. How much does the one ranked at 150 have?

To be honest I just got a bunch of people listed at random after #105. Some only have around 400 reviews, but are writing a few every now and again. If I were to make a top 150 now, I'd probably have to include myself and I know it will be a bollocks list. I should probably dig up one of my old top 150 updates first.

Indeed. But fortunately there's less point comparing your own gains on the VP list if you just don't miss any deposits. You'll always get the max possible anyway.
Eh, I just like to see the VP list going on. If we leave it for so long we'll get too many rank uppers for B/P.

Those guys always suck balls. I hate being bumped down, knowing I might never have a chance to pass them again.

Blow it out your ass!
Your ass, your face, what's the difference?

I like a good cigar...and a bad woman...

By the way, Ultor is another candidate right? Although if he keeps posting like he does, it'll still take him years to get those last 100 posts.
Mentioning Ultor just makes me laugh. He's trying so hard to get to 10k posts and even admits to aiming for it.

I was guessing that was his ultimate goal. I don't know why he still hasn't realized that posting normally without spamming will get him to 10k that much faster.

I would have figured that since it's so small that it was almost one big city with even your rural areas being somewhat populated.

Lol yeah. It's odd how Paris alone has about as many inhabitants as our whole country :p

But yeah, most live near the coast. Has a lot to do with the harbors and the trading companies of the 17th century I guess.
I would have figured so, since the Netherlands were a major power in trade back in the 1600s.

We refer to it as "the golden age". The age in which the Netherlands was one of the most powerful and wealthiest nations in the world due to having the largest merchant fleet and a great military fleet as well. Several naval wars against the Brits, French and Spaniards were won.

Now our military really doesn't matter anymore in the world and the economy isn't exactly superb either :p

Exactly. As a small country we are very dependant of importing and trading.

But sometimes I guess it is also for the taste. You know... oranges from this country taste better than the oranges from that country.
In the US, it's more or less whatever is in season where ever they are from and at the lowest cost. Taste seems to be on the back burner.

Oh well, if they're out of season then they're usually no good either.

Thanks man... I'm pretty certain that I've gotten a decent 2:1, so that's good. A first would have been nice, but ultimately I'd rather have had a good time at uni and gotten a second class degree. Props to all my homies who got a first in their degrees though.

I still could get a first, but a 2:1 is definitely more likely.

Also my graduation robes are pretty hideous, which makes me resent the £42 hire fee even more.

I work for a housing developer. Yes, I'm in the office now, but on my laptop, so using company internet :P

I'd love a job that entitles me to free internets :)

Well, I should do. My main priority in life now is jobhunting, and right now that means spending much more time on the computer, which inevitably means much more time procrastinating on NG. ;)

Well, you're clearly good enough to return to your mod duties again. Well, review mod for the time being. :P

Fair enough - I'm still going, but I'm not here for the ranks - they're a nice bi-product, but that's all.

Of course, I have no objections to you reaching the top ranks. You're most worthy than the others. Well, maybe Wylo and illuminate are just as deserving but Wylo's been rather inactive for a while now.

Auz better level up as fast as he can so you two won't have the same icon. That reminds me, DirtySyko is due to reach level 47 soon and he sometimes posts in the VG forum. Imagine how confusing that is, especially when I mostly focus on that forum for modding.

Heh, finding everyone above 400 flash reviews will be a task. It's even more difficult when some of them have been inactive for ages now or don't even deposit.
