the (now) usual start to today’s post: the quotes.
i had a few responses saying that yesterday’s quote was too easy…
i just can’t win can i :)
oh well. here’s the answer (black on black… select to view): serenity. malcom reynolds talking to the people in the bank near the begining of the movie. i was going to use jane’s quote: “we’re going to explode? i don’t want to explode.”
and today’s quote (schpat should get this): “[name removed]! I’ve always taken you with a grain of salt. On your birthday, when you told me to do a striptease to the theme of “Mighty Mouse”, I said okay. On prom night at the hotel when you told me to sleep under the bed in case your mother burst in, I did it. And even during my grandmother’s funeral when you told my relatives that you could see her nipples through her burial dress, I let that slide. But if you think I’m gonna suffer any of your shit with a smile now that we’re broken up, you’re in for some serious fucking disappointment.”
whew that’s a long quote… what movie is it from?
well i got some reports back from people today so i guess i’ll post the relevant:
firstly, al lowe is finally allowed to say what he’s been doing for the last year. here’s what he had to say (on his cyberjoke 3000 mailing list):
It’s late Tuesday night at E3 and my secret is secret no more! I just returned from iBase Entertainment’s very first press conference where we announced to the media what is by now obvious to you: I am doing a new game! Sam Suede: Undercover Exposure will be out in 2007 for PCs and next- and current-gen consoles.
The press conference was a blast. We had a big crowd; I’m sure you’ll start seeing talk about Sam Suede soon, first online and then later in print. But, more importantly, it’s just such a relief to finally be able to talk about this game! I’ve been working on it for over a year now, while still trying to maintain my “cover” as a retired guy playing golf and saxophone. Meanwhile, I’ve been working every day, all day, creating not only a fun game design, but a game development studio and a publishing company, too! I feel like Sam Suede: I’ve been Undercover and now it’s time to get a some Exposure!
So what is iBase Entertainment? Who is Sam Suede? What is Undercover Exposure? More on all that tomorrow. As they say, “stay tuned!”
and our world of warcraft specialist report/gimp, holeycrusader (no link to blog because he dismantled it due to lack of updates… probably playing too much wow) shows us how much he loves children in his report on children’s week, wow-europe:
And about your story about the orphanage quest in WoW, I did it yesterday with both my characters. But not for any silly pet that can follow you around… I did it for the money – the reward for the quest is one of the following: Mr. Wiggles the Pig, Whiskers the Rat, Speedy the Turtle or a bag of 5 Gold. What can I say, I started the quest with the best of intentions (I never knew about the money), but when they showed me the good stuff…
so there. he loves children for 5 gold apparently!
i had a comsci test this morning.
last night schpat came round and we played more zombies!!! corps(e). he won after we killed every zombie on the board. we then stayed up till +/- 1am.
after he left i couldn’t get to sleep.
i lay awake thinking about many things…
why zombies are so cool.
writing a blogpost about why zombies are so cool.
more computer games.
i eventually started to phase in and out of conciousness which led to some rather odd dreams.
i dreamt that my tongue piercing was back (i took it out years ago) and woke moonflake up to show her (in the dream, not irl luckily) except she couldn’t see it, so i went to the bathroom to check and i could only see the bottom, not the top. and then eventually i couldn’t see any sign of the tongue piercing and my tongue was bleeding a little bit at the tip.
so i went to the lounge and discovered the tv was on. i turn it off but i can still hear the sound and conclude that the tv next door must be on.
except now i cont see our tv… it’s vanished. i go closer to inspect and there it is, lying flat on the surface of the table in the middle of the lounge, looking like a photocopy of the front of our tv.
my dream self realises that the tv was a flatscreen all along and it must have blown over in the wind, but where did the wind come from?
i check the front door and discover that the glass has been smashed, but the burglar bars/gate thing is still intact so i head for the bedroom to wake moonflake up just in case.
as i’m heading there i begin calling her name, but my tongue is still bleeding so i’m holding it to the top of my mouth which muffles my calls, and i just don’t seem to be willing to pull it off the top of my mouth just yet.
i make it to the bedroom, moonflake is still sleeping, and check the room quickly while still calling out in my muted way.
the room looks fine until i’ve turned a full 180 and i’m facing the door again. suddenly my view is skewing and there’s all these ladders in my way, blocking my exit from the room and some of them have rope tied to the top rung. there are metal ladders and wooden ladders and so on.
i try heading towards them but i’m weaving and my vision is still all skew and warping and everything is moving real slow and not quite right.
at this point i realise i’m dreaming because i’ve had the whole “someone’s broken into my house and i can’t call out and i my body stops functioning and my view is all screwy” dream before. so i wake up.
it must have been about 3 in the morning by now. someone in the flat then dicided to run a bath.
at night everything sounds louder and longer than it really is.
about an hour later the king must have arrived because the elephant-like trumpeting of the pipes finally ceased.
i started to think about why zombies are so cool and maybe i should write a blogpost about it…
i woke up early and wrote the test this morning.
i think i did ok, but i ran short of time and screwed up a question or two.
i’d like to sign out with a qoute from bash.org:
dazed: yeah my mom caught my brother jacking off to Powerpuff Girls
dazed: she didnt yell at him because she was laughing so hard
dazed: she just told everyone at his birthday party the next day
BaileD: You have the most fucked up family ever. Period.
