Yeah, we should get more to vote on, but by that point, I'll need around 50-60 per day, which isn't going to be fun.

You need to make your way there. Push it!

Good, I've made my decision out of the two of you.
Wonderful.

And that person is...

No, I'm pretty sure it happened at a Newgrounds meet as well.
What, me getting hit on by a guy? I must have missed it.

If it didn't happen, I'm sure it will in Manchester. Maybe by me.

What are you doing on Skyrim? Main quest, side quests or guilds? I'm mixing when I play, but doing the main quest just isn't for me at the moment, too much fun with the side and guild quests. Oh and this happened, so I had fun with this.

I'm putting main quests at the bottom right now. I did the same for Oblivion so why not do it again? Well, except the fact that beating Oblivion's main quest got you powerful armour and weapons but what's good in that when I did everything at that point? Maybe I should finish off the main quest sooner than later. For now, I'm mainly wanting to go quests from The College of Winterhold.

Maybe pre-2011 he was more controversial.
I feel he is still controversial with the stuff he says, I'm still trying to watch all the episodes, but one I saw when he called Nintendo "stupid fucking cunts", I've never heard a reviewer (pretty big reviewer" say that about a game company and one as big as Nintendo.

Spoony has badmouthed Zelda many times, although the difference is that Jim Sterling works as an editor for Destructoid and has several big roles.

That's during the weekday. It'll be difficult for me with all the interviews going on.

Maybe I will visit you in Liverpool, then. A return ticket isn't THAT expensive and I have a whole day to waste after all. The match doesn't start until 20:45.

Yeah, the site could only get well known by word of mouth. Or else you would have to go around linkspamming in every forum. But that would only get you hated by many. ^^
People will have to find me via Google or promotion from bands after seeing reviews for their music.

Which would be the "word of mouth" method I mentioned.

lol, IE wouldn't be crashing my laptop right now.
That's one of the rare cases where IE might be better...
We're in a sad age for the internet when IE can be defended.

True. :(
At least IE6 finally dies out.

But it is their fault for it to crash constantly. No getting out of that one.
Opera rarely crashes on me. And if it does then it has to do with the poor flash support in Linux.
Also, I'm using Opera since version 5, so that's a really long time... ;)
I use Windows.

Opera almost never crashes for me when running Windows.

I know you'll shock us all eventually.
But not with a statement like that.
How else will you shock us?

If I would tell you then it wouldn't be as shocking anymore. Plus, I really have no idea how I should shock you. Or why.

Well, they do some automatic scans, I guess. Propably they catch those "content thieves" by matching hash sums. And if the conent is mirrored... then the hash sum will be different.
A cunning, if shitty way to get past the copyright filter.

Yesterday I uploaded "Dance the night away" from Blue Öyster Cult and it got blocked in germany due to copyright issues. LOL!

I've just thought - this morning, I gained enough experience to pass ayegowj. This might not seem like much, but that means that as of this morning, I am officially the 100th most experienced user ever to have logged on to Newgrounds.

No longer need I add one to my experience rank, no longer need I be ever so slightly miffed that the official site is lying to me, as Bahamut's update shows me at #101, while I see #100 on my profile. Those days are happily behind me, starting this morning!

I'm becoming more and more weary about possibly having a job by then. Considering I have three jobs to hear back from, it's likely I could start soon. 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?

People will have to find me via Google or promotion from bands after seeing reviews for their music.

I've heard a few tracks off it, just never got around to getting the album itself.

Mind you, this week appears to be quite musical - 112 tracks have found their way onto my iTunes Library and I'll be getting a copy of the Discovery Boxed Set later this week :D

American Anthems II and 4 Beatles CDs which I'd never borrowed from Dad before... strange.

Haha, his latest Jimquisition had him saying "Fuck you Sony, fuck you Nintendo and FUCK YOU EA!" It's OK, he'll still get their games to review. I look forward to when I receive some promos for album releases and I give them bad reviews because I didn't enjoy them. Chances are they won't speak to me again after it. :P

It's a good reason for this though, with SOPA going to fuck everything up. Jim is slowing becoming one of my favourite internet reviewer/rant person, I would hate for all his episodes to be gone just after I got into them.

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.

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'".

Maybe I will visit you in Liverpool, then. A return ticket isn't THAT expensive and I have a whole day to waste after all. The match doesn't start until 20:45.
I'm becoming more and more weary about possibly having a job by then. Considering I have three jobs to hear back from, it's likely I could start soon. 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.

We're in a sad age for the internet when IE can be defended.
True. :(
At least IE6 finally dies out.
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...

I use Windows.
Opera almost never crashes for me when running Windows.
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
Well, never, except for when web programers are too stupid to code correct HTML and they then make use of browser sniffing to lock Opera out of their web pages. FAIL!

How else will you shock us?
If I would tell you then it wouldn't be as shocking anymore. Plus, I really have no idea how I should shock you. Or why.
You better come up with something.

This leaves the question "Why?" unanswered, still.

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). 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.

Doug Walker is terrible these days. Did you see Suburban Knights? My god, the shit factor that film exceeded Seltzerberg. 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.

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.

I also still like Spoony's main videos, but he hasn't really done anything in a while. I'm still waiting for the next FFX-II episode.
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 just wish he would cut back to 15-20 minutes again. That's an okay sit for the viewers and provides him more than enough time to express his thoughts. He doesn't need to cover every single minute of the film.

Never heard of Jim Sterling, I think...?
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?

And did they also add the ending with Saruman taking over the Shire and then Frodo and co. come to save the day? That would've been an hilarious ending to the trilogy :p
It was a little more than that. :P

An additional 15 endings? :p

Out of curiosity, is there a European equivalent for Thanksgiving? I'm gearing up for the US version and it's going to be a busy day of family and food, I can feel it.

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.

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.

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.

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.
