It sucks but I guess if that's a way to score, then it's up to you to stop it. Might not be the best way to get things done but if it's there you have to expect people will do it.

I dont know how they called Florida when they themselves said they wont have the absentee ballets counted till Thursday.


Absentee ballots will trend heavily for Bush in Florida, since a vast majority of them will be military.  Also, they know how many ballots were sent out, and can project how many they'll get back based off what they have received.  I believe this is done by party.  And I don't think the absentee ballots can overcome a 363,000 vote difference.

I really don't think the provisional votes will be counted.  There some real fishy stuff going on in Ohio from both sides with regards to those, methinks.  Do we REALLY need another 2000?

I had to post this here.

Fox News broke early on this one, contradicting their caution the rest of the evening.  Bush will win Ohio, and their 20 votes.  With the rest of the states trending as they are, Bush will win the majority of votes needed to win the election.

If I cant use the internet what the fuck makes you think I can use a GBA? They just want me to sit there as a statue. And its not dumb, I don't see how my decision to fake an illness to get a few days off equates with unintelligence.


Man, quit being a tool.  You deserve to be fired.  Especially if it's found out that you're faking a doctor's note.  Your boss, knowing your past history of disobeying orders, will probably check up on your note to see if its legit.  Once she finds out it's not, you're toast, all for being a dishonest fool.

5183  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Godzilla all over AMC on: October 29, 2004, 05:25:12 PM
I'm not bashing what AMC is showing.  I'm bashing the channel as a whole for their mindless editing/commercial showing/time compression they do on a lot of their films.  When AMC didn't show commercials, they were a fine channel.  But, once they bit into that pie, things went downhill in a hurry.  

For example, when AMC was showing the original cast Star Trek films, the sound was awful, since they relied on "time compression" to fit the movie in the time frame allotted for it.  The music was out of key, the dialogue didn't sound right.

If I want my classic movie fix, I'll go to TCM.  Or rent.  smile

5187  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Best Cast Ever in a Movie on: October 28, 2004, 06:40:52 PM
Part of the problem of The Thin Red Line is that Malick's original cut of the film came in at just under 6 hours  Some of the "cameo" roles turned out to be cameos because of the editing; some people, like Bill Pullman, Mickey Rourke, and Viggo Mortensen had their roles entirely cut from the final picture.  All of the narration, at one point, was done by Billy Bob Thornton before Malick scrapped the idea and went with character narration.  Adrien Brody's character was supposed to be one of the central characters according to the script; this obviously was changed to Caviezel's character.  Therefore, some of the actors you see pop up in cameos probably had much larger roles in the original cut, and Malick chose to eliminate them from the final picture.  This is one movie where a director's cut would probably make certain things make a lot more sense, but the chance of that happening is probably none.

And of course Caviezel was sleepwalking.  His character was sleepwalking through the whole film.  How else would you portray that?

Gah! You henceforth lose any respect from me in regards to taste in movies.


Heh, so you are saying you didn't like it? smile The first time I watched it, which was in the movie theatre, I didn't care for it much. Especially it coming out right after Saving Private Ryan. I rented it and enjoyed it the second time around.


There are few movies I have genuinely wanted to walk out of, and this one is among them. I actually stood up to leave about 3/4 of the way through because I couldn't take it anymore, and Fireball pulled me back down saying, "If there's something cool at the end, then we'll miss it and have to watch it again!" Even though he was of the same opinion as me. Awful movie, and my review in the TCU newspaper that week ripped it asunder. What was even funnier was getting hate mail from some professors who felt it was a work of art and I just didn't appreciate all the subtlety and subtext.

I understood it just fine: War is bad, we should never go to war, nature is pretty, we should never destroy nature. Hell, I get as much from watching PBS and their documentaries are infinitely more interesting. smile


So you're telling me the part of the movie from the time they first stepped foot on the island until the massacre at the Japanese camp did NOTHING for you?  I can understand the opening and closing being a bit off.  But that part of the movie was absolutely astonishing.  John Toll's cinematography was vastly superior to Janusz Kaminski's in SPR, making it a much better movie to look at and watch.  Plus, how could you not be captivated by, for example, John Cusak's attack on the bunker at the top of the hill?  Hell, the music's better, too, and that's saying something, considering John Williams wrote SPR.

Methinks you need to watch it again.

The only thing that annoys me so far is the driving mechanics.  I guess I got used to being able to just plow through things in Vice City that all the spinning out and whatnot that happens when I hit a car or hit a light pole really throws me off.  Hopefully the more I increase my driving skill the less that'll happen, but as of right now, it's a little irritating.

5193  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: New Tupac Album This Year, Petition For Original Recordi on: October 27, 2004, 06:01:42 AM
Quote from: "\/\/olverine"

The Petition: Even if you are not a fan of Tupac's music, as a fan of art and music in general I stress the importance of becoming aware of this issue and signing the petition. This petition is against reworkings and additions to the artist's original vision of his work, the fact that people who did not even know the artist are altering his work is blasphemous and disprespectful to any artist who has ever had pride in his or her work. Can you imagine changing historical works from Leonardo Da Vinci in order to create a more "modernly appealing" version? Unacceptable.

Again, please sign the petition and make your voice known.


WHOA now.  This petition is a farce.  Music (well, if you can even call what Tupac did music) is reimagined all the time.  For example, every time a new classical CD comes out by a different orchestra under the baton of a different conductor, the music is different from its original presentation.  Does this make the album bad?  NO.  The music is re-recorded because it is respected.  The individuals re-recording Tupac's whatever probably respect what he's done, which is WHY THEY ARE DOING IT.  That Da Vinci analogy is wholly inaccurate in this case.

You really need to chill out if this sort of thing bothers you.
