Grrrrrr!!

LOL! (see picture below)

Well I haven't seen the match because I don't care much for the friendlies to be honest (matches are usually boring as hell).

Yeah, haven't watched it either, just some parts every now and then.

But from what I heard Germany fully deserved the victory. Holland has really been playing crap lately. Lost to Sweden, tied to Switzerland, lost to Germany... if they play like this at the EC I doubt they'll make it through the group phase.

I was surprised how weak the holland team was. I mean, they just CAN'T be happy with losing 3:0 against one of their biggest rivals, even if it was just a friendly match.
But don't worry about the EC. I think Holland is a lot like Germany: Playing like crap just prior to a tournament, starting very weak into the tournament but performing "better than expected" later on. ^^

Thanksgiving is a bit like the "Harvest Festival", even though the harvest festival isn't such a big thing europe.

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!

Also - on a totaly unrelated sidenote - I still think it's hilarious how "Worcester" is pronounced "Wuuster". It's like writing "ghoti" and saying "It's pronounced 'fish'".
ENGLISH LANGUAGE! Y U MAKE NO SENSE!

Have you not met my friend, Mr. Cholmondly-Warner? It's pronounced "Chum-lee", but it doesn't look like it :P

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.

Hitler with a Ukulele. That was hilarious.

Like I said, Spike was a genius. Sadly missed.

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.

Couldn't even stand watching his videos since and now he's on a heavier decline with heavily repeating his old meme-like jokes over and over again and now starting to steal jokes from the internet or blindly throwing in clips. When you have three episodes running with at least one Monty Python clip thrown in (as great as it is), that's when you should start freshening up your show a bit. At this point there shouldn't even be anything for his NC videos to review.
I didn't watch Suburban Knights, no. I was interested, but I just never got to watching it and forgot about it.

Yeah, it may have Spoony in it but he doesn't save the film that much. I will say that some of the better parts of the film were actually from his appearances but then you had the idiotic writers overdoing the jokes which ended up ruining them.

Anyway, I remember most of his older videos were pretty good and well watchable. He had decent opinions on things and occasionally he had some good jokes.

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.

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

He was meant to get something else out according to his Twitter. He seems to do fine with the vlogs but I don't watch them since I don't need him to go on for an hour about one film. That's another reason why I stopped watching NC and Linkara since they couldn't justify 30 minutes of reviewing one thing.
Well he did a one and a half hour review of Twilight: Breaking Down recently (together with Linkara and JewWario live in video chat), which was waaaay too long in my opinion. I did actually sit through the whole thing (not in one sit though) because it was pretty funny. But I really hope he isn't going to make this standard, because in that amount of the time I'd rather go watch the film myself instead.

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.

He's a review editor for Destructoid and does weekly videos for his Jimquisition series. It's like my gaming rants but better. His videos are usually around 5 minutes so it's all within decent timing. Well, he can't have them for long considering he has a lot to do on Destructoid as well.
Oh I see. Well if it's only 5 minutes I might as well watch a few. Any recommendations?

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.

It was a little more than that. :P
An additional 15 endings? :p

Well, it is LOTR extended so that should be the case.

Well for one thing, our defense is fucking terrible. We have an amazing offense as you might know, but we lack solid defenders.

And yeah, I do think a lot of people in our country would've loved it if we beat Germany. I did read some letters in the paper the next day in which people were complaining about how bad we played.

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

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.

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.

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.

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

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

I was kinda hoping they would make Dr Insano a more potent mad scientist, but alas, that part turned out pretty silly.

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 yeah I've seen that one as well. That was pretty good :p

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

Do I want to know?

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.

Well, yeah, but the vids with him are a bit slow.

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.

Well he doesn't do films, board games and things like that then, does he?

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.

His first ones are pretty good. He had some interesting things to say and his videos were fast paced (which I liked).

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"? ^^

I should do a post about Nanowar.

I'll have a definite answer next week but then there's the chance I could have yet more interviews. How desperate are you to see Liverpool itself?
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.

Nah, not Christmas. It's basically a day to give thanks and eat food with family. Anything like that?

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.

On a related note, I sliced my finger open while cleaning up after last night's trip to KFC. Don't ask.

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.
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...

If one was being posh, then the suggestion of You-king seems appropriate. However, the pronunciation of Uh-king would be my first guess.

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.
