W0ah, I leveled up in b/p for the first time in probably years! Now a colonel!

You know what I meant. :P

Back in the days, when we could have animated sigs, I even blocked those, because I found it too distracting.

I still have one of my old animated sigsfrom back in the day. (Figured I'd save everyone's sanity and just link to it instead of including it in this post.) :P The "-AD-" were the initials of the other alias I used to switch back and forth with (Metal_Therapy being the other.) Maybe I should have demanded my name changed to MetalUnderscoreTherapy? Betcha I'd have a lot more b/p right now if I did...

Oh boy...

Ah, thanks for clearing that up. I feel much better now.

By the way, that sounds like an incredibly silly movie. :P

It's not as bad as all that... Hell, it would only take 16.5 years to reach Supreme Commander (starting from scratch) getting only 5 b/p everyday. ;)

Listening to:

Therion - Lemuria. Man, how do I overlook albums like this? At least I'm trying it out on Spotify, even though they've been giving me Welsh ads today... Don't ask why.

I have a fair amount of video on mine, which takes up a lot of space. I got the biggest one available because I never wanted to worry about running out of room and having to choose what to remove to make room for new stuff. (I still have around 90GB free, so that's not going to be an issue anytime soon.)

I tend to not have videos as it's usually only stuff from iTunes that you can use on it. I never really looked into it that much, though. If DVD/blu-ray releases had a digital option tacked with it, I'd be using it more often.

Hopefully you can manage it all.
I'm not worried about the workload; I did the top reviewers with nothing but my browser, a calculator and a notepad file every week. This is just a lot more complex than what I'm used to. I've been trying to do a mock update, following the instructions you sent. I've gotten to the part with copying the 1x10k'ers into the separate spreadsheet. I'll be in touch with you soon to chat about it, just iron out any bumps.

Just give me a shout at any time. It IS a lot to take in and despite doing it for years I did slip up here and there.

Never say never. Also, I'm sorry, but Nijsse's story even tops your story.

I'm not going to argue with that. Cars >>>>>> iPod in terms of value and importance. Mind you, I'm 22 and still can't drive but I know how vital cars are to most of us. I'd have a car but with no job, I don't have funds for driving lessons or even money to get a car and then insurance and because of that, there are some jobs I can't even get because they require you to drive or the distance is too far. If employers in this country weren't such fascist pricks, I would have gotten somewhere by now with a full-time job.

I never will. And besides, my girlfriend finds me to be an adorable dragon and I'm meant to be fierce. :P
See? Dragons can be adorable. And Grisu is most adorable.

I'm becoming too adorable to her, it seems.

Pre-re-redesign? You're talking about 2007, right?
Yes.

I still liked those auras but the new ones don't gaze into your eyes so it feels more of a background. As much as I liked gold aura, I'll admit that the colours were a little too bright.

It's a series I recommend watching. I feel the episodic formats of Batman helps to present various villains in the franchise.
Hopefully it also has a logical story line and isn't a reboot of the reboot that rebooted the reboot from 3 years ago. Seriously, "The Dark Knight" just fucked around with the story line too much. The whole idea was that Joker created Batman and Batman created the Joker. But in the Dark Knight? Some killer creates Batman and Joker just appeared out of nowhere? LAME!

The Animated Series doesn't have a strict canon. They are standalone episodes that rarely make references to previous events. They are able to cater for many villains in the Batman franchise so it works out great. Some villains they've not even put on the films yet so their light shines better here.

So, it's like a "reboot"? It can help a series, but you have to be careful with that. For example, I don't undestand why they needed to produce just another Spiderman movie that shows how Peter Parker becomes spiderman... but a different Spiderman from a different universe.

Also, MJ >>>>> Gwen Stacy.

12 days now I believe. I was going to make a thread about it in General and ask why NG'ers aren't voting. In the hope that some actually would and help clear up the logjam in The Portal. There's probably also a stack of submissions below the Latest 50 Under Judgements that have been sitting there for days. Wade even made an appearance in the Chat the other day and asked people to go vote to help clear it up but alas it fell on deaf ears. Sad days indeed.

Oh, sorry. Anyway, the guys in the sig are supposed to be me (the tazer) and my old friend from high school (the tazee) - I was such a great friend. :P

As far as name changing goes, I honestly do miss being able to screw around with my alias. I don't think I'd have it changed now, though -I've just had it for way too long to do so. (Same thing with my sig.)

I think it's simply a case of the elevated amount of submissions we've had in February overwhelming what little users are voting on a daily basis. I've honestly never seen anything like it before, though -not for this many days in a row, anyway. (Seems like so long ago when 10 or more UJ's at any given time was a lot. And whatever happened to waking up in the morning and seeing that a handful of submissions had passed while I was asleep?) :P

I was thinking about it as well. So maybe we should just do it. ^^

There's probably also a stack of submissions below the Latest 50 Under Judgements that have been sitting there for days.

Just go to the "Under Judgement" page instead of the classic portal and you can see all the flashes that are under judgement (d'uh). On some of those I have voted three days in a row... it's really sad.

It was fun. :) I'm honestly going to miss making these...

We'll find something else to do.

I've been talking about meeting an old flame in Leicester, but it would be just that - casual, nothing serious and perhaps a chance to catch up on old times. God, I sound like I'm going through a midlife crisis...
You know, I always hoped we could meet outside the NG events.

You talk as if one of us is dead - there is still a chance that it could happen.

Damn, that sucks. Something similar happened to my old laptop, after I spilled Redbull on the keyboard -no wings though, just dead. :D

Shouldn't that be [D:]?

I've hit it a few times, but I do know one guy who has hit his laptoip so hard that they keyboard broke off.

It's not the having a laptop, it's the having time! I'm on the desktop computer here, but I get hardly any chance to get on and surf.

Wow, all of that for a post and I still have over 4,000 characters remaining...

Today marks my 8th Newgrounds Birthday!

Exactly. There's a time and place for comic relief -that wasn't one of them.

Indeed. You'd expect them to keep at least some level of seriousness. I just hope they won't go too far with comic relief in the next two films.

Yeah I agree. I liked how they kept his appearance a bit of a mystery.

As for the Necromancer, my only concern with him is that he might take the wind out of Smaug's sails as the main villain. I just hope they'll keep it more as a sideplot and still keep Smaug as the major bad guy they have to beat.
I never really considered that... I'm honestly surprised at how much attention the Necromancer received in the movie, considering it was just more of a plot device in the book, foreshadowing Sauron's rise in LOTR. It'll be interesting to see how it develops, anyway.

I bet they want to work to a DUN DUN DUN! moment for those not familiar with Tolkien's novels.

To be honest though, I wasn't sure who the Necromancer was either until I looked it up after I watched the film. It feels a bit like I spoiled a major plot twist there.

Fine if you haven't read The Hobbit, but even from the film itself it becomes obvious that it's a prequel to The Lord of the Rings.
Yes. Also, how can you miss all the talk going on, that Jackson is now brining THE PREQUEL to the cinemas now?

Indeed. But I guess there's always a large crowd that doesn't really care all that much about what they're watching.

Well if I remember correctly, he says something like: "Not fair!" but I don't hear him mentioning it's against the rules or that it isn't a riddle. In fact, he even starts trying to guess it.
Yes, he complains about it but Bilbo insists, so Gollum doesn't really have a choice.

Yeah okay, but he could've just refused and eat Bilbo :p

I thought this part was adapted well in the movie. Bilbo even does fiddle around with the ring before he asks that question, just as it is described in the book.

Yeah they nicely paid attention to the details. As they should, because it was definitely the major scene of this first part.

By the way, for some reason I always imaged that Gollum was sitting on that island during the scene and didn't actually see Bilbo, but I suppose I misread something in the book.

Yeah I would still like to get my hands on them someday. I believe we do have the films on DVD, but I don't think they contain many extras.
DVD. LOL! :P
I have bought the BluRay-Box on the last Amazon "Cyber Monday". It was money well spent, since the additional scenes add so much more value to the movies... the only thing that pisses me off slighty is that there are sometiems different camera angles for the same scenes in both versions. ^^

I can imagine Lord of the Rings would be awesome to watch on Blu-Ray. The thing is that I don't have a Blu-Ray player (yet) because we still have one of those old fashioned TVs with a (relatively) small screen. I don't think I'd notice much difference between DVDs and Blu-Rays on such a TV.

You're talking about Star Wars, right?
Of course. Are there any other shitty movies with "Episode I - III" in the title? ^^

No I guess not, but just checkin' :p

I was thinking about it as well. So maybe we should just do it. ^^

I gave it some serious thought Haggard but in the end I decided against it because I figured that anyone who read the thread would just go and blindly vote 5 on everything under judgement and what little chance we have of gaining any Blam points, well, you know the rest. But if you feel it's worth it, please be my guest and make the thread.

Anybody who puts their balls in my mouth gets castrated. End of story.

Ah, I really should try that. However, it would be a matter of ripping the video files from my DVDs so that's another factor to consider.

I don't recall ever ripping a DVD, just CDs. Can't be too difficult, though.

You should start again, as there's now next to nobody making them. I honestly always enjoyed seeing my name and achievement listed here, even if the typical congrats list is a bit routine and generic -it's a LUL tradition, anyways. ;)

As long as we don't start talking like old men... "Back in OUR days...." or "You know kid, when I was young..."

Now hold on there, sonny, I think I said "whippersnapper" on the BBS the other day, though I don't quite remember. Ya see, my memory ain't what it used to be. *sucks on dentures*

Can't say for sure as I've been arguing with only one of those. :P

I'd imagine dragons would be great to argue with, as they've always stuck me as grumpy beasts. :P

I'll be happy if they keep it where it belongs... Hopefully they don't ruin Smaug by turning him into a clown.

I bet they want to work to a DUN DUN DUN! moment for those not familiar with Tolkien's novels.

As in discovering the Necromancer is the reemergence of Sauron?

To be honest though, I wasn't sure who the Necromancer was either until I looked it up after I watched the film. It feels a bit like I spoiled a major plot twist there.

I didn't know for sure, either, (though I did suspect it was Sauron) after reading The Hobbit for the first time. I ultimately decided to look it up, just to know for sure. :P

Thank You

Coop :P :P :P

Electronics never suffer from mercy killings, especially if you kill them because they don't work right.

I will. I need to plan how to conquer the world and how to get more sims into my new city, which will be being built soon. March 8th is release date, it's still not available for pre-order on Steam...
