681  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: 2010, The Worst Movie Year Ever? on: August 02, 2010, 01:26:04 PM
Well, some of this can be blamed on the writers' strike from a couple of years ago, as that was the time that a lot of current movies were to be worked upon. Instead, studios had to hustle out some films and push other ones back. Personally, my summer has consisted solely of Inception and Toy Story 3, with a potential viewing of The Expendables soon. Maybe Salt, since my dad raved about it so much, though the trailer left me "blah".

 have a nice collection, I still love my Kindle. I purchased Lord of the Rings for a song on it and it was such a joy to reread it without having to maneuver the large volume I have on my shelf. Plus, it's great for traveling, as it's so much easier to bring that rather than 3-4 books.

As for little known facts, the character of Tom Paris in Voyager was originally supposed to have been the same character from the TNG episode where Wesley graduates from Starfleet.  According to the Wikipedia article, the producers weren't happy with the character's lack of guilt in the TNG episode, so they created a new character with a similar past.

What I always heard was that the produces didn't want to pay royalties to the authors that created the original character, so they created Tom Paris.

I saw the film tonight and I loved it. It's always nice to visit with old friends, and the characters were pitch perfect, even after all of this time. A few things:

Spoiler for Hiden:
I did feel that there were a couple of moments that felt too dark for me in the film, specifically, the incinerator scene. It wasn't so much the mortal peril, as it was the toys resigning themselves to their doom. I understand that it was supposed to symbolize the characters' unity even in the face of certain death, but it just struck me as a little too morbid for this particular movie. I also wish that they would have revealed that Bonnie adopted Bo Peep, too, as I was sad that Woody lost his woman. Finally, it felt a little unfocused in parts, as there was so much going on, that the toys never got a real chance to slow down like they did in the first two.

All in all, I'd say 2>3>1.

I tried to play it when it first came out, but the plot was lackluster, the graphics bland, the writing terrible and the puzzles weren't any fun. Other than that, though, it was ok. Perhaps, I'm just viewing my memory with shit-tinted glasses, but I didn't bother playing more than a few hours.
692  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Charisma Carpenter's ass...NSFW on: June 03, 2010, 03:55:05 PM
I see the point about the thread title, it is a little out there for work consumption. As for my work-surfing habits, while I do surf some at work, I don't cry about it when the filter claims another of my regular haunts. I am at work and have no leg to stand on in arguing about it. I'd rather have this site blocked from work, then have to censor damn threads around here, at least when it comes to hot women. They're a tradition around here and I've never been one to wish for the consolidation of threads. I never know what might peak my interest that I wouldn't otherwise see if it was grouped in some mass thread. Besides which, if we did that for one category, then I would expect it for all. That would basically mean ~7 threads labeled like "Sports", "Dumb Criminals", "Crappy Fast Food Sandwiches I Like","Cult TV Shows", "My Pet/Family Member is Dead/Pregnant/Getting Married", and "Ceekay/Daehawk Presents". I don't see the need for such economy of space, but that's just my opinion.

And now for Scarlett!

Seriously, there have been "hot girl" threads posted on this forum FOR YEARS. KD posted his "Sunday Skin" threads before the crybabies killed that and even since they've been a constant. Whining in this thread about it is just silly.
My job didn't start banning me from viewing this site for the risque pictures until a couple of months ago, though.

Well, that doesn't necessarily prove causation, and even if it did, so what? You're at work. I can't look at the site at work and somehow I have made it through just fine.

And now for something slightly different, I present Kelly Brook's ass...

Well, dead cats are the number 3 cause of death in the summer months.

I'll always remember Dennis Hopper in Hoosiers, though I've seen him in a bunch of other stuff. I think Hoosiers was my first exposure to him and he was the heart of that film.

It looks like Gary Coleman has died. Looks like it was a brain hemorrhage. The guy was the poster boy (with Dana Plato being the poster girl) for how child actors can get fucked up in that career.

Why do we have this thread? I know it went down a couple of years ago for an extended period of time, but that was different circumstances. I'd be willing to bet that someone in the know from OO would post over here if OO was to be shut down for a significant amount of time. I mean, doesn't Qt3 go down at all? Shouldn't we have a thread for them, too.

713  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Need a good joke on: April 16, 2010, 05:52:20 PM
A man is driving when he sees an orangutan sitting on the curb. Not knowing what else to do, he puts it in his passenger seat and continues on. He stops at a gas station and the attendant comes out. Seeing the odd scene before him the attendant asks, "Hey buddy, why do you have a monkey in your car?" "Well, he was just sitting on the side of the road; what d'ya think I should I do with him?" "That's easy," the attendant replies, "just take him to the zoo." "Good idea, I'll do just that", the man says, and drives off.

A week later the same guy pulls up to the same gas station. The attendant comes out and sees the orangutan in the passenger seat. It is wearing a swimsuit, zinc oxide on its nose and is holding a towel. "Hey buddy", the attendant shouts to the man, "I thought you were taking that monkey to the zoo?!?" The man yells back, "Yeah, well we had so much fun then that we're going to the beach this week"!

718  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: You can go back in time to any gaming year...what year? on: April 06, 2010, 11:07:46 PM
I would like to go back to 1988 and experience my discovery of the Ultima series again. Plus, I would be able to anticipate the release of Ultima VII. That is the game that I remember wanting the most prior to release. I read everything I could on it which wasn't nearly as much as is available for current games. I think it's that mystery that builds the anticipation. There isn't one game I'm desiring that much these days.

I am replaying this game on a Mac and cannot figure out what to name the folder in which to install the plug-ins? I have tried "Plug-ins" and "Nova Plug-ins" in the main game directory but neither work. I know that this is an older game, but any help would be appreciated. The plug-ins I am trying to install are not total conversions, but rather mods that add ships and missions. Thanks.
