I'm in the market for a new one myself.  I got a Fossil one several years ago that I love, but it's getting pretty dingy and it's time to update.  Sadly they don't make the one I got anymore, and their designs are much more plain than they used to be, or I would likely just buy it again.

Anyway, go for broke with Burberry!  I am lust with this bag -

Brad Pitt carries one.  Only $900 at your local Nordstrom! icon_eek

Looks Scottish to me. I bet i could get one in our clan's tartan colors.

Every time I see someone mention "their clan colors" i have to chuckle.  A friend of mine worked for a company that supposedly supplied folks with scotch/irish and english ancestral history, with tartan colors being the most requested items.  he then showed me how they basically chose the colors at random from a book, then supplied these folks with a "clan history" that was just a template sheet that they used Microsoft Word's find and replace function to fill in.  icon_lol

my god kathode, you may as well paint unicorns on the side.  it looks like it has room for all your various lipstick colors, though! 

get a man style bag, damnit!  make sure it's covered with pictures of Charles Bronson holding a gun.  Festoon it with stickers you've taken off FDA approved steaks.  grow a pair, man!

Tonight was apparently the season finale.  It was nice to finally find out what was up with the black and white intro that has been in each episode this season
Spoiler for Hiden:
which was not at all what I was expecting and a bit disappointing, but I guess that's what they were going for
but of course it left enough hanging that I can't wait to see how they come back next season!

I went cheap and got one of these in olive green. It's durable but nothing fancy. Works for what I need.

I get crap for using it from coworkers which I don't get. Its ok to use a back pack but not a messenger bag?

I have one very similar to that.  However, after I received it I realized it has red stars on the strap.  Now everyone thinks I'm a supporter of the Red Army.   icon_confused

I have a friend who I thought had similar taste in comedy.  Recently I brought up Bruno and how I thought the trailer for the new movie looked funny.  There was a pause and then he mentioned that he hated Cohen because he didn't like comedy that relied on humiliating people.  While I can understand that sentiment, I have to say that a large part of comedy consists of "getting one over" on someone.  In essence, all comedy is cruel in some parts.  As Mel Brooks once said,

Quote
Tragedy is when I cut my finger. Comedy is when you walk into an open sewer and die.

7413  Gaming / Analog Gaming / Re: AE-WWII miniature. My first painted in 3 years on: June 01, 2009, 02:44:27 PM
I picked up the rulebook for Secrets of the Third Reich out of curiosity.  While the book is full of really awful artwork and more than a few misspellings, I really dig the setting.  It's much weirder then AE-WW2.  I see it more as a complement to AE-WW2 in my collection than a competitor.  Both rules sets are pretty easy to learn and the miniatures are interchangeable, for the most part.  I think I prefer the setting and tone of SoTR, though.

Hmmm...FFvTR works perfectly under vista 64, but FF is a bit wonky.  had to use software sound plus my characters don't seem to want to follow my orders all the time. 

Otherwise, the game holds up relatively well.  I think that has more to do with the art style they use.  I have to say, I'd forgotten how much fun this series was.  I really wish they'd go back and do another in the line!

Will be watching it tommorrow evening and writing my review for Horror-101. A lot of horror fans are skeptical because it's a PG-13 movie.. but I'm hoping Sam will make it lots of fun to watch.

The Haunting (the original, not the goofy ass remake).  Scariest...film...ever.  Not one curse word, drop of blood or even monster.  A lot of today's horror fans aren't really horror fans.  They're gore hounds.  I want you to chastise these people on your site.  Give 'em a dressing down, PR!
7420  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / But...it has wolves on it! on: May 29, 2009, 01:32:23 PM
some folks are trying to sell a t-shirt on amazon.  unfortunately, reviews aren't what they were expecting.

the shirt



the story

Quote
Sales of the “Three Wolf Moon Shirt” are up 2300% after word got out that it was getting priceless customer reviews on Amazon. Hundreds of reviewers are vying to be the funniest. The first one says, in part:

    This item has wolves on it which makes it intrinsically sweet and worth 5 stars by itself, but once I tried it on, that’s when the magic happened. After checking to ensure that the shirt would properly cover my girth, I walked from my trailer to Wal-mart with the shirt on and was immediately approached by women. The women knew from the wolves on my shirt that I, like a wolf, am a mysterious loner who knows how to ‘howl at the moon’ from time to time (if you catch my drift!). The women that approached me wanted to know if I would be their boyfriend and/or give them money for something they called mehth. I told them no, because they didn’t have enough teeth, and frankly a man with a wolf-shirt shouldn’t settle for the first thing that comes to him.

You have to learn to use the whole loaf, just like Native Americans used the whole buffalo back before Costner civilized them.  Make clothing out of it.  Create toys for your children out of the crust.  Let it harden in the sun, then sharpen the edges for deadly throwing squares you can use to then hunt down and kill more bread...trucks.

Or maybe french toast? Or using the old bread to make croutons?

could these "croutons" you speak of be used as some form of melee weapon?

They could put Tonya Harding in there for all I care.  I don't much care for Smits, but last season was still good.  I'm just glad Dexter's coming back. 

Yeah, I was surprised at how little Smits brought to the show.  Plus, the guy ain't agin' well.  Still, the show is basically just a vehicle for Michael C. Hall's considerable talent.  I honestly can't imagine anyone else playing Dexter with such aplomb.  I can't wait for season 4.

p.s. I was surprised to read a few months ago that Hall had married the woman who plays his sister in the show.   icon_eek

Yeah, I bought the stalker sequel last night, then turned around and bought WiC two minutes later.   icon_lol  I have the first WiC but I can't find the dang serial number for it.  I figure for less than the cost of the expansion, I get that and the second game.  But dang, 7.9 gig?  Plus, somewhere between my comcast connection and the gamersgate servers, there must be some conflict as the connection is spotty at best.  I have to check the download every few hours to make sure it hasn't paused the download, requiring me to hit the UNPAUSE button.   icon_confused

so far this week i've bought king's bounty, men of war, stalker: clear sky and WiC.  I know I'll get the SotS if it's the ultimate edition as well.  these sales are gonna be the death of me!

I love that series.  I stopped after about the third or fourth book, though.  I really do need to go back and finish the series. 

By the way, if you get a chance, read his short story collection A Coven of Vampires .

7439  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360] Sacred 2 finally gold! on: May 26, 2009, 06:36:31 PM
Thanks! 

On the matter of combat arts, I found this on the sacred 2 wiki page:

Quote
The higher the level of a Combat Art, the stronger the effect. However, this will increase regeneration times, so it's best to balance the levels according to your play style. For attack Combat Arts, you may prefer many small fast hits with a short regeneration rather than one hard hit with a much longer regeneration.

    * Note- Increasing a Combat Art to too high of a level can cause unsatisfactory regeneration times for certain Combat Arts. It is often best to leave some Combat Arts at level 1 until your character is high enough level to support the increased regeneration time gained by using more runes.

I think I may have gimped my character by leveling up all my combat arts.  I didn't realize the regen rate was cumulative across all aspects.  Perhaps I'll start over...although it'll hurt since I've got about 12 hours with this one. 
7440  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360] Sacred 2 finally gold! on: May 26, 2009, 06:22:50 PM
Question:  what are the downsides to using all combat art rune drops to increase your level in the associated combat art?  the manual suggests that you limit yourself to only a handful of the 15, but I honestly don't see why you should since I'm getting so many combat art rune drops during the game (i'm playing on silver).  Is there a point of diminishing returns I'm not aware of?

Also, when do I start my class mount quest?  I'm lvl 22 right now and I just entered chapter 2.  My quest book says nothing about a mount quest and my class quest appears to have been finished as there's no longer an entry after the last one I finished.

still lovin' the game, by the way!   icon_biggrin
