1281  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Post your Ride! Car pics! [56k Warning] on: April 23, 2005, 07:31:32 PM

Only I've removed the front plate, leaving two gaping holes (Ghetto!) and lowered the suspension a bit. Sadly, I have no higher-res pix on this cpu.

Quote from: "Rage"

I seem to have an odd man-crush on Brad Pitt and Ryan Reynolds. I will watch any movie they are in. Having said this, I am still mostly sure that I am completely heterosexual.

I was thinking of restarting the Man-Crush thread I started back at GG.

Confession: I am no fan of country music, but I watch CMT every once in awhile, hoping to get a glimpse of Keith Urban's badass hair. Plus, they show some great live performances.

$9.99 at Blockbuster Video. YMMV, of course, but the one by my house had several at that price.

Does that "rain" in the banner cause anyone else's CG experience to s.l.o.w. way down? Thankfully, I have Mozilla and Adblock, so buh-bye to that ad. Now my CG is nice and fast.

Can someone please clue me in on why all the Rush love lately?

Why? Why not? It's always good to get your Rush on.

Speaking of pictures, go here for some cool ass Rush photos I took last summer. Stinkin' Yahoo Photos won't let me direct link 'em. Check out DSC00015. Not bad, eh? If anyone wants, I have them at 16x12 and sweet for wallpaper.

1300  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / F/S: 3DO, NES systems and games on: February 25, 2005, 02:54:33 AM
In cleaning out the parents' house last weekend, I came across our old 3DO and NES. Will anyone take these off my hands?

The 3DO works (played The Need For Speed and John Madden Football, no issues) and has the following:

    3DO system
    2 controllers
    John Madden Football
    Road Rash
    The Need For Speed
    FIFA Soccer
    Shock Wave
    Crash 'n Burn
    3DO demo disc

The NES gets power but the RCA jacks are faulty. The RF adapter I have works, though. It has the following:

    NES system (redundant!)
    4 controllers
    1 NES Advantage joystick
    1 NES Zapper light gun
    1 Nintendo AC adapter
    1 RF switch

and the following games (no boxes or manuals unless noted):

    Mach Rider
    Karate Champ
    Kung Fu
    Wario's Woods (with box)
    Rambo (!) (with box)
    Dragon Warrior (with box)
    Ice Hockey
Tecmo Super Bowl
Mike Tyson's PUNCH-OUT!!
The Adventure of LINK
Casino Kid
Street Fighter 2010: The Final Fight
Super Mario Bros.
The Legend of ZELDA[/list]

I have no idea what kind of prices I could command for these two systems, so make me an offer. Maybe I could interest U2K in the 3DO, seeing as how he's into developing for older systems...

1305  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / I have mono and it is good. on: January 29, 2005, 06:56:43 AM
In perusing, I came across a little shareware game called mono.


Goodness. Take Asteroids, Smash TV, an acid trip of sorts, FPS controls, and dance/trance (?) music, put 'em in a box, throw the box down the stairs, and press play.

This game is awesome. Getting a hold on the "flipped" FPS controls is tough. Have fun.

1306  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Any Art Bell fans? Remember Mel's Hole? (SFW ;)) on: January 14, 2005, 11:32:52 PM
Yes. Not an Art Bell fan, but a Mel's Hole fan. I love stuff like this.

I remember a few Halloweens ago seeing a website about a hole/cave somewhere where a dude explored and took pictures. Really fascinating and creepy stuff, true or not.

1308  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / I got Halo 2 for Christmas... on: January 12, 2005, 07:21:55 PM
and I haven't even opened it yet. Have no desire to. But I don't want to miss out on anything it might have to offer. Instead, I've been playing GTAIII when I have the time. I also picked up NFSU2, which I'm thinking of ditching.

I played Halo a few times, never got very far. In fact, the farthest I got was when I found the captain of the Cortana and had to "protect" him. He kept getting waxed, which meant I would get waxed. I got tired of it and gave the game back to my buddy.

Do I need to play Halo 2? Or should I put it on the block... (looks longingly at Fatal Frame 2)

One other thing. I saw on Logitech's website that you get 2 months free of program listings on the remote. Don't tell me there's a monthly fee to use that feature. I'd hate to have another subscription to something...

1316  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Extreme Makeover Home Edition- biggest steaming pile of crap on: December 28, 2004, 12:36:52 AM
What bugs me about the show is the rooms they design for the kids. God help me if my son likes astronauts and they make a room that looks like Space. What happens when he starts to like music? Then what?

And let's not forget about Ty. Talk about a doofus. I watched him on their big "behind the scenes" special, and when he's not donning his TV persona, he's not bad. But the TV persona is so FALSE and GRATING that it drives me KRAZZZZZY!

1317  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / New Rush on: December 23, 2004, 06:29:22 AM
What's wrong with you guys? Don't freak me out. This CD was new...


Of course, w/o GG anymore, search wouldn't have done you any good. slywink

As good as the CD is, something about it just doesn't sit right with me. I think  even though it's their own spin on the songs, it's still not enough Rush for me, you know?

I've been having a good time listening to some "recordings" I have of OLD LIVE Rush, like from the Hemispheres era. Some of it is great. Awesome performances, nice and tight. Then others are HORRIBLE. When Rush is good live, they're great. But if they're off (and I've heard plenty of "off" live stuff), they're HORRENDOUS.

But, I digress...

Quote from: "Caine"
"big baller" and all the variants of ball or baller.  hate it and hate anyone who uses it in a regular fashion.  there's a dj on a local radio station who uses that word quite often and it makes him sound very stupid.  of course, he also talks with a stoner voice which he thinks makes him sound cool and goes by the name of "the ricker"  

biggest a-hole on the radio and the reason i don't listen to the station any more.

that'sright my bre. Seattle, right?

He bugged me at first, now he's kinda funny, though I hate the music they play on the station now.
