Goddammit Coop, you don't need to keep eyeing on my crotch.

It's not your crotch - it's the bucket of KFC behind you that I'm eyeing. Mmm.

Too bad you didn't do anything special for it.
Like what? I've got big plans for 30k, trust me.
See you there in five years. I'll try for next year.

Five years? I'll aim to be there sooner, but that will mean that I've got 30k in 4 stats by then. Your fourth will probably be experience.

I understand. It should only be £5 in HMV so it's worth it.
Ah, but the budget for Xmas is already crippled, by a £1,200 bill from Mastercard >:( Xmas is cancelled for my family!
Now that blows.

I can cope, I just need some of the old financial juggling, that's all.

Nope, and I see no reason for why we should celebrate Thanksgiving.

I personally am thankful for our ancestors, for deciding that America was too expensive to run, so allowing them to take it for themselves.

Now there's an attitude to piss of "patriotic" Republicans :P

Woah, woah, hold on a second - I'm not having you suggest that our politicians are decent upstanding members of society. They are cheating, lying embezzlers, who only leave their job if the very worst happens and there isn't a shred of halfway decent reputation that they can still cling onto.
Or! Or! Leave their job when they can get a better (paying) job elsewhere.

Ah, you mean Tony Blair quitting as Prime Minister, to become a Middle Eastern Peace Envoy. It's like selling the promise of water in the middle of the desert.

But yeah, a lot of politicians are opportunistic scumbags. However, surely they can't be any worse than the Italians. Heck, at least they threat women respectfully in the UK (last time I checked).

Well, if they've done all of the housework, we respect them.

Manilla Road to the World - Part 13: Blood Eagle (Voyager)

I have now reached a base voting power of 9. Not much left for VP milestones now and the next base VP achievement is 9.5. That's not until the high tier of level 54.

Listening to:

Black Sabbath - TYR

Heh, is it anything like that Molesia (or whatever it was called) thing they did? I thought that was alright, but not every part was funny.

That was Kickassia and I thought Suburban Knights was much worse. Both had too many forced jokes, though.

By old, you could mean his sketches from 2006 or before. :P Now that's old school TGWTG. Even when considering his main videos, NC and Bum Reviews were at their best in 2008. 2009 still had plenty of moments but 2010 had many forgettable videos. Both of these characters are drawn out at this point.
I liked his more serious work, like his top 11 lists and everything. Last time I watched them was probably around 2008-2009 though.

Apart from his review for The Room, you're not missing out on much.

Oh, and when Doug has to make a reference to My Little Pony, you know he jumped the fucking shark.
Jesus... =/

I didn't even mention the worst part of Subparban Knights.

I thought 50 minutes of trash talking Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen was enough. I went through that but there was a lot of time spent on "Is movie X better or worse than Transformers?" More and more I focus on other video makers for genuine reviews. A lot I've seen are straight to the point and don't drag for 30 minutes.
Oh yeah, that was a bit silly. His brother is probably a nice guy and he has decent things to say at times, but most of the reviews Spoony does with him drag on for too long indeed.

At least his brother is willing to take part in some of his videos.

I'll throw in some videos. Boycotting and the current state of Square Enix are good examples of what he does on a weekly basis.
I do like his style and 5-6 minutes is a reasonable amount of time.

Oh yeah, those are reasonable lengths. Keep in mind that he does reviewing for video games as well as news reporting on Destructoid so he's a heavy multitasking individual.

I liked the GameOver Thinker as well. I think he had a similar style to Jim Sterling, but recently he has also stuffed some plot into them and to be honest, he kinda sucks at acting and writing. I wish he just went back to his old style.

I never really got into GameOver Thinker and considering his recent bullshit, I'm less motivated to go through his videos.

It will. I'll be the first to reach 4x30k but there'll be no 4x40k for me. 3x40k isn't bad, though and yet by then, ZAAL will still have more posts than me.

Oh it's not just Tony Blair. We've also had prominent members of parties getting a high position at banks and big international companies. As an "advisor" or some title like that.

For me it would be cheaper if the meet up would happen in Manchester (duh!), but if Bahamut can't make it that would be a pity.
Yeah, I understand. I hope you guys win though - I hate Man City almost as much as Man Utd!

I will sit between ManCity fans, though, most likely with a City strip on. My brother is a City fan (and he was before the Sheik came and bought the club). ^^

I love heading particularly American tourists asking for directions to "Lee-ah-ming-ton Spar", as opposed to "Lemm-ing-ton Spar" Leamington is a lovely place. Worcester is just pronounced as that by the locals. Your could probably get away with pronouncing it as "Worster", but our accent changes it to Wusster.

Last week I was browsing through the english football pyriamid and found a small town called "Ucking". Me and my friends wondered how that should be pronunced. "Ucking" with a "u" as in "university" or like "Fucking" without the "F"? ^^

Is there anyting worth to see in Liverpool? Google image search gives me 3 pages of Liverpool FC before showing me the a picture of the skyline. Lol.
Well, are you a Beatles fan? Plenty of stuff to check out relating to them.

I'm not really a fan (I don't own any albums) but I still like their music.

But AOL lives on. Well, at least they have the IM service.
AIM is shit. Also, they had that annoying ad back in the early 00's with that yellow man making noises...
Yet we still use it, lol.

I wouldn't use it if wasn't for many NG users only having an AIM account...

I would rather use Jabber

Either you've dodged every bullet or Opera is paying you to defend them. :P
I would be happy if Opera would pay me, but no, that's not the case. It just never fails for me. :P
Then you are dodging all those bullets.

I don't know which bullets there are to dodge. Opera is just working fine for me without any "dodging".

You better come up with something.
This leaves the question "Why?" unanswered, still.
Now that's shocking.

YAY! Unintentional shocking is still... shocking.

That sounds like Xmas - we usually give thanks when either we leave or the family leaves us for another year :P

In all seriousness though, I might have reasons to be very thankful, or very sombre this Xmas. I might have to get the old black tie and white shirt combo out twice before the festive season and that's not something nice to look forward to.

I've posted a review for Budgie's Never Turn Your Back on a Friend. I've always wanted to write this review so I'm happy I did so. However, now I don't have any reviews in stock so I better get writing... Right after Skyrim.

I'm not really a fan (I don't own any albums) but I still like their music.

I suppose sightseeing trips relating to The Beatles wouldn't really be worth it for you. Well, there are some museums if they're of any interest to you.

Yet we still use it, lol.
I wouldn't use it if wasn't for many NG users only having an AIM account...

How many do you know still use it?

Then you are dodging all those bullets.
I don't know which bullets there are to dodge. Opera is just working fine for me without any "dodging".

You clearly can't see those bullets.

Now that's shocking.
YAY! Unintentional shocking is still... shocking.

But I wanted the regular shock.

Hmmm. Can't relate it to any sexual fantasies between us three.

It will. I'll be the first to reach 4x30k but there'll be no 4x40k for me. 3x40k isn't bad, though and yet by then, ZAAL will still have more posts than me.
I think I might be the second to 4x30k, correct? I wonder if I've got it in me to ever reach 4x40k...

Yeah, you should be the second to reach 4x30k or maybe it'll be Gagsy. She's at least halfway for 30k blams.

NG Log, you can see your NG stats, its pretty cool. Like you said, when you get a major NG achievement, it will say "You've reached rank" etc...

Your experience gave you a voting power of 8.57 votes. Your blam and protection points gave you an additional 40% of your experience power, meaning that your total vote power was worth 12 votes!

Oh thanks. I looked the day after and I couldn't find anything other than fake vids ("GO TO THIS WEBSITE TO SEE THE HIGHLIGHTS").

Anyway, nice goals. Well played out and everything, especially the third one. Though I do think it's mostly due to the poor defending that it looks so good.

By the way, I like how substituting is part of the highlights :P

But you know, I never actually saw Tony Blair as such a bad guy. Up until George Bush showed up at least. Then I thought he was just an ass kisser.

Heh, well it does seem like a lot of politicians only become popular AFTER they've left politics.
Because when they've left, they stop pissing us off so much, by making appaling decisions that could ruin the country.

And of course because people always think that things are worse than they used to be, back when that politician was around.

Do I want to know?
I will warn you, it's very nasty.

Hmm... but I suppose it is fake, right?

Well he doesn't do films, board games and things like that then, does he?
Nope, it's only video games he covers and he does very well. He's certainly a lot more dedicated to gaming than I will ever be.

Well he kinda looks like a guy who witnessed the release of Tetris, Pong and Pacman.

His first ones are pretty good. He had some interesting things to say and his videos were fast paced (which I liked).
I watched the one about saturation with mature rated games. That was an interesting one.

Was that the one about how people should stop complaining about overly sexualized female video game characters? I can't remember, I think he did two videos on that topic.

Just a quick heads-up - Don't congratulate for anything other than 5,000 increments of Medal Points. We don't want to encourage people to post achievements that they can get in under a day, otherwise we might get spammed out of this place.
Fair enough, I'm sorry I was unaware of that rule. I'll be more careful of what I congratulate from now on. My apologise again.

*apologies ;)

He was a lot better than John Major. That much is a given. Then, he started getting greedy for more power and should probably have relinquished the reigns to Gordon Brown earlier... then the situation would have been better and perhaps a new leader for the Labour Party might have been David Miliband and he'd have been in charge.

Of course, this is a massive what if scenario and seems unlikely to ever happen now.

Heh, well it does seem like a lot of politicians only become popular AFTER they've left politics.

I think we're still reeling from the Thatcher dominated politics of the 1980s. She must pay for her crimes, I feel, but that's in the past.

I just made my 10,000th post in the Pentalist thread.

I didn't have any ideas for a witty thread in the General Forum and I suppose people might start bitching "why can't I make a stat thread while a mod can?".

Anyway, this also makes me the 29th Quadlisted user on the Pentalist.

Woopdiedoo.

Couldn't post earlier due to lack of responses. At least we were a little busier whiel I was away. This place will not and should not die. If any site should die, it's scum like deviantART.

Listening to:

Iced Earth - The Crucible of Man: Something Wicked, Pt. 2. Why am I listening to a dire album? Oh yeah, because of my discography OCD. Well, I'm missing self-titled, Horror Show and Dystopia but I still do it anyway.

This is why I find it hard to take TGTWG contributors as serious actors. They all make themselves too self-aware of their alter egos. At least James Rolfe keeps his series in their own places. There's no "Oh hey, Board James make a cameo appearance in AVGN's latest episode."

I will warn you, it's very nasty.

It isn't. Well, not showing the camera right at your crotch. That certainly isn't fake.

Nope, it's only video games he covers and he does very well. He's certainly a lot more dedicated to gaming than I will ever be.
Well he kinda looks like a guy who witnessed the release of Tetris, Pong and Pacman.

Oh yeah, he does look old school but to me, he seems to support newer games more than pre-Playstation times. Not to say he hates those games from those times but I often hear him talk about post-millennium games. Would it come to a surprise that he actually praises Call of Duty?

I watched the one about saturation with mature rated games. That was an interesting one.

No, I believe it was one of his first videos. All about games being grim and gritty.

Too bad. I think the biggest shock would be to meet each other in Liverpool and it all succeeds. Providing no interviews are in my way, 2:30 at Lime Street would be excellent.

By the looks of it by tomorrow morning I shall have finally reached the rank of Private First Class. It's not a particularly high rank at all, however this kinda stands out to me as the first intentional rank up I have experienced since 2009, when I reached Police Captain and after 475 or so more BP disregarded the UJ section until a spammer had their account deleted, adding blams to my account for the fourty or so flashes of theirs that I had downvoted and getting me out of the Police ranks, thus ending my time with the NGPD, after I had effectively given up on B/Ping. After a few days of moderate voting, I once again became inactive, however in the past two days I have accumulated around 90 points, proving that just checking back occasionally is all that's necessary to begin rising through the ranks again, as I intend to do. :D
