Wait, why do people from the UK know Trailer Park Boys if Americans don't? That's just confusing.

I think they just crossed the eery valley.

Heheh, think you were shooting for the "uncanny valley", but I definitely see what you mean. I would say that they still have a little ways to go with making them look natural though, especially the talking. Not sure I can put my finger on it, but I think it's the lack of any movement where it's not completely necessary to the action.

I was talking to you about Trailer Park Boys (albeit very briefly) when you were over here in January!

Methinks you need to lay off the rum and the dope.

Who gives a fart? The Olympics are actually really boring if you think about it, its only cool if you're into one of the events(like if you do track or something) or if you have a certain athlete to cheer for. I mean, the Olympics are fun and exciting if you're there or watching it on TV for the first time, but it gets stale, especially seeing as its the same stuff every year.

imo, anyways

There's no dope to blame. I am a child of the alcohol. No exception tonight, I've been doing irish carbombs. They are quite delicious.

I just want to see ping pong. Have you seen how f*cking crazy good they are at it? They are like both 10ft away from the table and still playing.

I just got back from the APW Festival and my legs could not be any more destroyed. This was the first festival I've ever been to.

Girl Talk put on one of the best shows I've ever seen in my life and Radiohead was simply amazing as always. Lots of fun had today.

Hm, when I looked closer at that guy's profile I figured that these were the old qualifications..

Since everybody automatically gets a profile nowadays, and they don't put the profile pic next to the UOTD, you can get it by simply making a single post.

On a totally unrelated subject, it's my birthday today :)

The Winter Olympics are where it's at. They're like having one of those relaxing screensavers on TV, only all the time.

UoTD is random, you just need at least 10 posts. Also, Paranoia said about cherry/brandy. What a mistake make! =P

Olympics

I saw a bit of the opening ceremony. I saw this absolutely stunning woman that game out with the Uruguayans. I don't think she was an athlete (even though see was massively fit) so I'll never be able to find her name.

Happy Birthday DreamworX

My dad just came up with a pretty good idea on capitalizing on flash games.

Imagine a website which (initially) had a list of say, 6 different games. These games would be designed to be sent out in company/business newletters, seasonal greetings, christmas emails etc. They would also be designed to be customizable, and each game would have a list of customizable options to make them more unique and fun for the company.

So, for example (this is just coming off the top of my head, I havent really thought about games ideas yet) you could have a game where the basic aim is to defend your office. The game could have customizable signs which could be changed to the companys name, the characters could be designed to look like actual employees of the companys, enemies could even be changed to look like rivals of the company or something.

I just think its a cool idea, im sure there would be loads of companys willing to spend a couple of hundred pounds on a fun game to send out to employees which was totally customized to suit their needs/corporate identity/humour or whatever. Once the game templates are made, it wouldnt be a huge amount of work to change the customizable options. You could have different levels of customization so the more unique things to the company, the higher the price.

its just an idea at the moment, what do you guys think? Does anyone know of a service like this which already exists?

if luis or someone comes out with a site like this in a few months.... I WILL FIGHT YOU!
