That's good, you won't have the timeline to worry about. That shit looks like a MySpace layout. I like having all the posts on one column, not two.

I've avoided MySpace as well, since the layout looks like pure shit to me.

Maybe he enjoyed the attention he got.
He didn't look happy about it.

Come to think of it, I've never seen a dragon smile...

I guess there are still unopened booster packs out there. But instead of focusing on older Editions you should just buy packs from newer editions.
Obviously. The only old cards I'll try and get are those that are for my dragon/drake collection. I was considering collecting Wurms but some of them looked like giant bugs rather than the heads of a dragon. :P

You should consider a Goblin collection instead. ;)

While I was out today I dinged 3,000 Blams.

Compare that with over 16,400 Saves.

I hate people.

I've got one hell of a long way to go to reach 9th, but it's worth savouring the chase...

That's their loss. I'll get over it, I suppose.
Here's a song we can definitely agree with: Phantom of the Opera!

No. Not at all. One of the weakest songs on their debut album. Give me Running Free, Sanctuary, Charlotte the Harlot and Iron Maiden from that album, but steer well clear of Phantom and Prowler.

If I do get in gear, I'll see what I can do at bigger tournaments. Magic's meta should be interesting considering the diverse decktypes that can be used and can prove to be very powerful.
Ah, so you're getting really serious with this, then?
Well, I should learn the thousands of cards they have before I even get to that stage. Just so I won't get an obscure thrown at me and I have no fucking clue what it does. I expect Magic will have its tricks. ;)

Oh, that's easy - check the Wiki articles and see the new rules on mechanics for each set.

You can't be serious about that. You heat that intro and the interlude? Damn brilliant stuff right there. Then again, the debut album is consistently awesome.

What I will do is give Duels of the Planewalkers some playtime prior to the pre-release. It might not contain the new game mechanics but it'll jog my mind.

Yeah, Cait Sith doesn't count at all. It's hard to take Moogles as serious main characters. What would you think if they had started using Tonberries and Cactuars as playable characters?

Indeed. Cait Sith seemed to me like one of the most interesting characters, but he only plays a role at one part of the game and for the rest he just stays at the background.

I know Cactuar and Tonberry were a summons in Final Fantasy VIII, but it would be interesting seeing one as a playable character for once. Or they could at least make it so that one joins you as a guest for some time.

I'm watching the boss battle on Youtube right now. I don't know what the plot is like, but I have to say that he does look really weird. Like ... 2 dimensional and he has a massive sword underneath him? Wtf?
Depends which boss you're talking about. Either way, Barthandelus was one that spoke a lot of bullshit from his arse.

Nope that wasn't the one I was talking about. This one had a massive sword for a body.

I like to eat spicy food, but once I couldn't finish my meal... should've bought something to drink as well, haha.

Hmm I'm not such a big fan of spicy food because the spices can really dominate over any other flavours a dish might have.

And in battle, he's just a gimmick gambler. There is the odd one move you might be lucky to get which can give you instant win but it's best taking normal methods.

I know Cactuar and Tonberry were a summons in Final Fantasy VIII, but it would be interesting seeing one as a playable character for once. Or they could at least make it so that one joins you as a guest for some time.

They could but chances are they'd fuck it up a lot in this modern age.

Yes, YouTube COULD be a good place if I could listen to the damn music. But all I get is the "this isn't available in your country because we are fucking pussies" error message. And I don't have the patience to try out if any proxy server might work.

Coop wonders if a month's rainfall in a day will cancel the cricket. Congratulations to:
No-one *sigh*

And now to wonder when I can creep up on him. I've been waiting to pass him for a looooong time now.

You'll get there. It seems that he's slipping more of late.

I'm not all that far behind 96th either, relatively speaking.
So right now we're only 20 ranks apart. Just shows how much slower it's getting now. I'm still fighting my way to the top 100.

Yeah, but I'm only 97th and if everyone is running at the same pace, no-one makes any relative progress.

Um... I'm not a member.
In that case, I don't have to worry. I had one but it's only yearly subscription.

If job worries sort themselves out, I'm there.

Do you have any game shops that cover Magic and such very well with regular events?
Yes, ManaLeak in Worcester is probably the best one by me.
Uhh, it's in a Lifestyle Express store? What the hell?

Yeah, but as with most things, it is not what is outside, but what is inside that counts.

BTW, full list for Avacyn Restored is up and all I can say is my head will be spinning at the pre-release.

I'll have to check them out.

I felt like that last year. I lost my godfather to cancer (He's younger than my dad, for crying out loud), had a car crash, split up with Bex, had major issues with work and stuff got me down. I resolved pretty early in the year (before most of the shit, actually) that 2012 would be my year. Almost 4 months in, things could be getting better.

The meet was a sign of good things to come :)

My estimate? I don't have one. I don't play medal games too often, so I haven't set any goals regarding medals or medal points.

Yeah, I go off medal games for a long while. I suppose an easy one will help me get back to the swing of things.

I actually think YouTube is the better option for finding new bands now. Soundcloud doesn't do a bad job, though.
Yes, YouTube COULD be a good place if I could listen to the damn music. But all I get is the "this isn't available in your country because we are fucking pussies" error message. And I don't have the patience to try out if any proxy server might work.

Oh yeah, Germany's restrictions. Fuck, why must they do that?

Just my human disguise. Can't have my true appearance shown in public.
So even if you smilied I still wouldn't have seen a dragon smiling.

I'm still a dragon so it is one smiling.

Doesn't matter, I collect dragons, dammit!
Okay.

That saying, I tried out a Goblin/Dragon deck on Duels of the Planeswalkers and they are really cool.

You'll get there. It seems that he's slipping more of late.

First off, I do have life to pass. He barely deposits now. He's my next easy target.

Or even better, less pace than ourselves.

I only rush for a membership for live shows. Easier to book a ticket when you're a member of their fanclub.

Yeah, but as with most things, it is not what is outside, but what is inside that counts.

At least the Liverpool shop has a place for themselves and not hiding in Lifestyle Express.

Only one drake and one dragon here but I really shouldn't be focusing on them too much. However, if I did have everything for my collection prior to Avacyn Restored, then at least these two would be easy to focus on. Right now, I mostly looked at the white cards and there's some cool stuff there.

2012 isn't my year, a lot of personal stuff happened at the start of the year and got me down, it picked up around March and now this happened. I can only hope that it picked up again now.

That's so sad. I am so sorry for your loss. I genuinely think that losing a pet can sometimes be worse than losing a family member, most times actually, except perhaps for losing parents and siblings. The loss of a long term pet can be massively distressing. Once again, so so sorry for your loss.

It must be a phase of the moon or something. Yesterday, a very unexpected rogue wave (nothing huge but big enough to rock the boat), hit my boat and I fell over onto my dog Roger and hurt him bad. He wouldn't stop shaking and yelping. It scared the shit out of me. I thought I had fucked him up badly. I'm a big guy and he's just a little Jack Russell. Thankfully I hadn't left Pt. Pirie where Shannon lives and she was able to meet me at the local jetty/pier and take us to the vet. The trip to shore on my Seadoo was not a pleasant trip for Roger. But it was the only option. Thankfully the vet found no serious damage, I just exasperated the injury he got to his back a couple of months ago, severely stretched back muscles again. He's struggling to piss and shit, and he's really not in any mood to eat right now. So the poor bugger is on pain killers for another 10 days, again, and he can hardly walk. And considering his amazing sea-legs it quite tragic to watch. I feel so bad, so guilty, even though it wasn't my fault really, I still feel like shit. He's currently getting a outrageous amount of TLC from me. I know it's nothing like losing a pet, but it's still upsetting to see your long time friend in pain.

Cheer yourself up Odyssic, buy a puppy. It takes away a lot of the pain you must be feeling.

Yeah, I remember getting him. Can't believe how quickly you've taxied up to his mark...

Yeah, I know. I'd just lean on a few fanclub members I know :P

You'll be all right. Everything will work out in the end.

Or better yet, a rescue dog - at least bring some joy to a life that knows none.
