14 hours and 2/3 of a bottle of Southern Comfort saw me through it.

Alongside to the planned extended trilogy watch, we did attempt to get the soundtrack but it was refunded due to it not being in stock. Ah well, there's plenty of time in the new year to hunt it down.

I'll say that I'm happy to live in a country that doesn't allow the public to be able to carry guns. However, that doesn't excuse arresting someone just because they attacked someone who was attempting to burgle their house. At the end of the day, people in this country cannot be trusted with guns at all. If they were ever legalized, I imagine it will be chaos.

Yeah, very disappointing. They get your hopes up high, but in the end, nothing happens.

Well that's it then. Absolutely nothing happened. Most disappointing thing that happened was Margaret Thatcher surviving from her operation.

They're only numbers. :P
Of course they are. I always wondered, why the world should end in the year 2000 (christian calendar) when other calendars where way in the 3000's already. That was just silly... or maybe not as silly as all those other "predictions", heh.

So can we laugh off every end of the world prediction now?

However, with my participation it becomes a threesome. You really can't argue with that.
Yes, but it won't be FF anymore. It would be FFM. ;)

Still something fun, though.

Put Doctor Who at a higher priority? Problem is solved!
Where to start? Way back at the beginning with the first doctor? Fuck that, there's not enough time for that.

No, my recommendation is to start with the modern series. Then, you can watch the new episodes as they arrive. Plus, the episode Rose is a much better paced story than An Unearthly Child which is in four parts.

You don't know who you're dealing with here. He's the fucking Doctor, it's almost impossible for him to die.
"almost impossible" != "impossible"

You better familiarise yourself with his regeneration process.

Start jotting them down now!
I already named a few.

Good, keep it up!

Yeah, self defense is something I can understand. But arming yourself, to "protect" you from someone who is armed as well is just silly.

I'm pretty sure the scientific predictions are right: When the sun explodes, the world will end. But this won't happen any time soon (in 4 billion years, I think).

I still have to finish X-Files first. Then the Alfred Hitchcock Collection (14 movies). Then the Stanley Kubrick Collection (7 movies) AND the LotR Extended edition as well...
Also, how can I watch new episodes if they aren't shown on Free TV? I won't get any Pay Per View TV channel just to watch that series.

I totally agree - they are demented in thinking that an increased amount of guns in the hands of the general public actually helps to lower gun crime. Statistically speaking, the more guns there are, the higher a chance that one is going to fall into the hands of someone who would be labelled as "unhinged"

I guess we have to wait until the start of the next day in Mexico, then.

Well, it's the 23rd here, so I guess it didn't end, after all. Jim Butcher said that his faith on the Final Doom is shaken, as this is his 7th Apocalypse...

I feel slightly ashamed that haven't read either of those; what genre of books are they? I love series that you can spend a whole summer reading, you get so accustomed to immersing yourself in the story on a daily basis it's almost like you're living a second life. :P

They are both fantasy, though of very differing styles - Discworld is satirical in its portrayal of Victorian Britain, around the time of the Industrial Revolution. The Dresden Files is a crime fantasy series, focusing around a Wizard in Chicago - the only one who advertises in the Yellow Pages. I've been Reading Dresden for almost a year and I've nearly caught up to the publishing cycle. Look for Book Reviews in the Writing Forum, if you want to read my take on them...

It's worth it, as is the soundtrack for Avatar.

Yeah, self defense is something I can understand. But arming yourself, to "protect" you from someone who is armed as well is just silly.

You don't need a gun to protect yourself but this country sadly has the logic that to arrest someone for burglary, they must go through your house successfully and take whatever they find.

Isn't there a specific name for fantasy books that incorporate real locations or people into an otherwise fanciful story? The "His Dark Materials" trilogy by Phillip Pullman was one such series I read. The characters traveled between multiple dimensions, one of which being our own world -England, to be specific. Everything else I typically like is purely fantasy. (I would say high fantasy, but Game of Thrones is really more low fantasy, I think.)
I'll try to get around to checking out out your reviews on those books -I would love to get hooked on a series of that kind of length.

I already saw some of what I'll be getting. Next time, my dad should NOT leave stuff that's intended for me lying around in the conservatory when I could walk in at any time for whatever need. This was a day when he went out for Christmas shopping as well so it wasn't carefully hidden.

It sure was. When we got to the bar they were playing Helloween's Perfect Gentleman and then Megadeth's Sweating Bullets. However, it turned to a series of shit music for an hour and then good music was played again... and then shit.

I really have no idea. Maybe his life is busy but I will call bullshit on that if he can play at least 30 hours a week of Steam games. It's like there isn't enough time to reply to my last PM to him... He only remembered me enough to re-add me after my Steam friends clearout. Maybe he'll be lucky to meet me again on Steam. Maybe...

Science-Fantasy? I've not heard of it, though the closest that I have come is Conn Iggulden's Historical fiction, where he takes events such as Ghengis Khan or Julius Ceasar's lives and puts his own spin on their personal histories.

I'll try to get around to checking out out your reviews on those books -I would love to get hooked on a series of that kind of length.

Apparently, Butcher has plans for 24 books in the Dresden Files series. I'm currently reading the 13th, a collection of short stories, called "Side Jobs". Ghost Story is next, then Cold Days, which was only released in August.

And the same to you - I managed 2 sets of cufflinks, a Glenfiddich sample set with a hip flask, £25 Amazon and £25 iTunes vouchers. I've had a bit of chocolate, a few quid and... a cold.

No smellies, though I did ask for some. I will be spending my money on some Boss Bottled and perhaps some Alestorm, for the journey to work. I'd better go and grab my Alice Cooper to put that on iTunes....

You know what would be a good Xmas present for me - a single fucking BLAM!

I've had precisely 2 Blams in the past week, which is a fucking joke. It's not like I'm not trying, but there is something seriously wrong with the system if things that are beyond god awful that are still passing and shouldn't be. But 6 days out of 7 without as single Blam to show for my time on the portal. I can't comprehend that.

Murray Christmas to all! Today has been a great day despite the persistent sneezing up until 8 in the evening. Still, I managed and a lot was done. Christmas Day was concluded with the latest Doctor Who special so tomorrow we just have one family to visit and then it's nothing until dinner in the evening. It'll be a lot easier for Boxing Day, even though we do need to wake up early just to see said family as they need to be out of the house by midday. I imagine we'll start watching through movies we got for Christmas tomorrow. There's a lot to catch up on and I highly doubt we'll even watch them all.

Yeesh, that's worse for you as they took a picture of that shit. As long as this pimple settles down by new year's eve, I should manage. I'll see how it is by the 27th and if it hasn't even gone down then, I may have to get an appointment at the doctors, even though the ones nearby are useless shits.

Indeed. My blam count has stayed stuck on 581 ever since the beginning of this week.

According to statistics, it's been almost a week without a single blammed submission available (with an exception for "Doomsday".

Can't really tell whether it's the submissions' quality going up or the save-whores increasing in number.

That sucks. I personally wouldn't care too much if it were me, as anyone who takes a picture of me will quickly find the camera shoved down their throat. ^^
If there are no cameras involved, then I wouldn't really care -it's just family, right? :P

It sure was. When we got to the bar they were playing Helloween's Perfect Gentleman and then Megadeth's Sweating Bullets. However, it turned to a series of shit music for an hour and then good music was played again... and then shit.

Do you play billiards or darts when at the pub? My friends and I used to shoot pool and drink beer all the time when we first hit the legal drinking age. Good times. Oh, and the jukebox is always like playing Russian Roulette, I know what that's like. :P

No but it's on my many things to do before I die.

It's some really tasty stuff, though a tad expensive. The brand I like most is imported from Ireland and is around $20 a bottle and it goes up from there... (My drink budget is normally like $8 or $9 for a six pack of beer, don't mind me.)

I really have no idea. Maybe his life is busy but I will call bullshit on that if he can play at least 30 hours a week of Steam games. It's like there isn't enough time to reply to my last PM to him... He only remembered me enough to re-add me after my Steam friends clearout. Maybe he'll be lucky to meet me again on Steam. Maybe...

Sucks, though I do know what it's like to go through phases with NG. Cool you were able to talk anyway.

Maybe, I just remember speaking to someone about fantasy who mentioned something very similar to what you're describing. Maybe I'm just making things up. :P

I was actually surprised when my dad got me a 23" monitor for my brand new custom PC I just finished building this past week. I felt like a dick as I didn't do any shopping -I thought we had a mutual understanding that we were being scrooges this year. -__- I bought him something online shortly after, though...

Just when you think it's hit rock bottom, it manages to get even worse. It seems we are in transition from 1-3 blams a day to 1-3 blams a week. :\
I've said it before, but I count myself lucky that I did a lot of blamming back in '04 and '05 and was able to reach 10K as a result.

I'm sure it will be fine.

A nice use of statistics and I managed 2 of the 3 blams on the 21st...

No, there are less submissions, but the overall quality does not rise - you should still find blammable content every single day.

I'm just taking advice from Wiki, so who knows?

I think it might be related to the time of year. Hopefully we'll be back to normal soon enough.

I've said it before, but I count myself lucky that I did a lot of blamming back in '04 and '05 and was able to reach 10K as a result.

I've been Blamming steadily since 2004 and I've now passed 30,000, though I would like to think that I can reach Bahamut's lofty 40k some day soon.

Pretty much as far as I read before I thought, "what are the specs", so what are the specs? I take it you know about speccy, nice little software where you can quickly show specs, and it is good for you if you care about temps. I built my PC around October time, so glad I upgraded from my damn laptop, I can't even go on that thing anymore.

My specs.
