Noooooo!! She's gone!  crybaby crybaby crybaby

Jason, you should have been gone! It's time to find all those teenage girls voting for him and SMASH their cell phones to bits!!! icon_evil

Ahh well I had Syesha going home but BrOOke wasn't much of a surprise.  How Jason keeps staying around baffles me no end.  I guess I'll just have to get used to the idea that David Archuletta will be the next Idol (does it matter?  I never buy any of their songs) after seeing that guest singer run over and molest him on live TV.

I liked the show but could only get the CW network on my OTA antenna.  I got a new receiver that doesn't support OTA so now Reaper is toast for me.

Only one store doing a midnight release tonight and they are only doing pre-orders, I'll be on sometime tomorrow afternoon Pacific time.  I need to make sure I get a mountain bike ride in before getting a copy somewhere.  I'm counting on there being many many copies available.

Not knowing what I was doing I somehow managed to get to level 29 before getting ganged up on.  I had a +5 katana and a +5 iron shield, both plated but I lost the katana on level 26?? when some armored thingie kept hitting me and unequipping my stuff.  I carried on with a +1 katana I had found and seemed to be doing so well until monsters broke most of my jars and I used up all my healing.  Fun run.  I did find a mastersword that I stashed, I'll try to level it up.  I have one question, how do you level an item up once you've used the blacksmiths on a run?  do you shelve the item and have your Shiren die so you reset back to lvl 1?

Not really bought for gas savings but more for parking at work but I ride a scooter to work almost every day.  I get 60mpg and it's a hoot to ride to work so a win win for me (the wife hates it though).

I like the 360's controller better than the PS-3's for driving of any type so 360 it is for me.  Hope to get some MP action in but alas my work schedule limits that ability.
1062  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: American Idol 2008 on: April 25, 2008, 08:11:40 AM
My hope is that David A's fan base has peaked and that any voter for Carly, Syesha or BrOOke  will not jump on his bandwagon after their singer is eliminated.  I'm hoping the voters shift over to David Cook but who knows how many votes Archie gets each week, he may out draw the others combined.

Snow shovel to the face Archie, snow shovel indeed!

Too bad Kristy Lee Cook is gone, she could have rocked Niel Diamond's  "America" for the patriotic vote.

I hope someone sings "Brother Love's Traveling Salvation Show"  (I bet Amanda would have done it), Well I hope David A doesn't sing it but anyone else would be fine.  Other than those two songs I have a hard time thinking of Neil's other works.. I guess Song Sung Blue and Sweet Caroline are a couple of others.
1063  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: American Idol 2008 on: April 24, 2008, 09:13:42 AM
Well Well very surprising result night.  Both BrOOke and Jason knew they were destined for the stools of shame and yet neither hit the bottom 2.  Like Randy said, this week was all about popularity not ability and while I was never a Carly fan, I though she did quite well with her song.  Syesha also sang great but ended up at the bottom, her fan base must be slipping or BrOOke picked up all of KLC's fans.

So Carly heads home and we don't have to see her husband (ever notice that the producers seem to only show him for a split second?) and his crazy face tats.

With Neil Diamond week next (really? Neil Diamond?  Was Burt Bacharach too busy?) I'm betting for another round of popularity voting and Syesha heads home no matter how well she sings.
1064  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: American Idol 2008 on: April 23, 2008, 08:52:25 AM
Yep train wreck for Jason!  Dog, you gotta know that song was sung by a cat on Broadway for years!!  And a female cat to boot.  I see trouble on Castro street this week, in the bottom 3 no doubt and I have him heading for the door.

BrOOke will join him on stage at the bottom, that restart isn't going to do her any favors.  The final one of the 3 is a toss up between Syesha and Carly but I'll say Carly since I liked Syesha's song better.  Paula for once had some insight when she said Jesus Christ Superstar was too high a register for Carly and I agree, it just sounded off a bit.

To quote Tony Kornheiser on his radio show "I just want to hit David Archuleta with a snow shovel at this point", his songs all sound the same to me, nothing new at all, week after week.

David Cook did a decent job on his song and while Micheal Crawford is the gold standard, I'm not sure the AI voting public is that familiar with Andrew Lloyd Webber's stuff in the first place.

Jason, Memory is sung by a cat.. A CAT!!!! Dude you gotta pick better songs for yourself.  I think if KLC was still around and got to sing Don't Cry for me Argentina, she would have survived this week.

All these posts and I'm the first to mention Terry Pratchett and his Discworld novels?  icon_biggrin

I'd say read Small Gods if you can find it, very very good book.

Another SciFi book I really enjoyed and is a single volume would be John Steakly's Armor.  In fact I'm going to dig it out and read it again.

I bought one for my Mom and she seems to like it.  I'd get one myself but am in the $400 price is too high club as well.  I was willing to spend the money to get Mom something she wanted but until I get a chance to see one in action in person my reading will be done in a book.

Nice bike Zinfan!

Are those mechanical disks, or hydraulics?

I had a Divinci with hydraulic, and I hated them so much, I got rid of the bike.  So fussy.  The mechanical disks entrigue me though.

They are Formula K-24 hydraulic's and they work great, not fussy at all for me.  They are also the first disc brakes I've ever used, my old bike had the V-brakes.

1070  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: American Idol 2008 on: April 17, 2008, 09:30:19 PM
If it is David vs David in the finals I'd also pick A to win just based on the fact they will each have to sing some sappy song that won the writing contest.  Last year there was no way Blake could do anything with that horrible song whereas Jordan could put her style on it.  I expect the song this year will be similar and that would easily favor Archeletta.  I've rooted for Brooke all this season but have to agree that she has reached the limits of her voice, the same can be said for Syesha but Carly still has some further abilities to reach for. 
1071  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: American Idol 2008 on: April 17, 2008, 08:52:46 AM
Next up Andrew Lloyd Webber?  Hmmmm lots of choices there I guess, who is going to sing the theme from Cats "Memory" (my guess, Carley)?

Someone will also have to lock up the South American vote by singing "Don't Cry for Me, Argentina" BrOOke perhaps?

It seems to me to be a foregone conclusion that David Archeletta will sing something from Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.

Jason Castro I have down for "The Music of the Night".  But on second thought he likes the guitar and it's ilk so he could go with "Banjo Boy" from By Jeeves

Maybe David Cook can put forth a reworking of "Shakalaka Baby" from Bombay Dreams

Syesha can sing some song that Sarah Brightman did.  And I hope they have Sarah come out and sing a song on elimination night.

This is Outage Day 13.  As one of the original vOOlunteers who spent his time lending a hand at that site, I'm questioning my own motivations for returning to the scene.  I know that the current limitations of that forum software are going to be a major hurdle made more difficult to overcome after seeing some greener grass in other places.

Well I hope it comes back, GT is websensed at work and work is where I do all my heavy forum posting.  You can't expect me to post lots and lots on my own time!  Quality will suffer!  Won't somebody please think about the websensed?!!!??

Well Mariah night has come and gone, definitely an interesting one!


Prediction: Syesha, Carly and Brooke in the bottom 3.  I've incorrectly predicted Syesha going home already so I'm going to go out on a limb and guess Brooke leaves this week.

I agree on the bottom 3 but I see Syesha heading home, on a week for diva songs (I think of her as a diva singer) she didn't bring enough to the stage.  David Cook's song was very well done, I listened to it twice and may even think of downloading it, which would be  a first for me for an AI song.  The guys did far better than I imagined they could while the girls all under performed.

2. Zinfan...a scooter rally? For real? Ive never seen one of those go by or even heard of one. What ya riding there? Were there any old 70's era Hondas? I had one my wife's cousin gave me but I ended up breaking the clutch and selling it for squat..DUMB ME!  crybaby

No 70's Honda's, lots of vintage Vespa's and Lambretta's.  Most of the crowd were on modern era Vespa's and I ride a Piaggio MP-3.

I think there were over 100 scoots on the ride but I never got a chance to count.  Lots of fun!  Here is a bit of the gang heading out at the start of the ride.

I can't stand Mariah Carey, but I'll watch to see how David Cook adapts to it.

I *really* wish they'd do away with "theme nights" or the mentor crap, and just let them sing what they want (as long as they can get a license for it). It would greatly improve the show.

Btw, I think KLC did a great job this week, and that David Cook pretty much sucked (still hope he wins though)

While I thought KLC sang quite well I hated her stagecraft.  The whole performance seemed so unnatural and forced.  Mariah eh?  Well she may be able to survive if one of the guys bombs but I think all the other female singers can out do her on these type of songs.  It will be interesting to see what song Brooke has chosen to sing.  I don't get all the support for Carley, she doesn't appeal to me at all as a singer and I had her pegged to go home last week and from her reaction she did to.
