Always nice to have one of those... or a multi-million dollar trust fund... or just being independantly wealthy, in general.

But, honestly, though... how many of us really luck into options two and three, huh? *wink*

Good on ya, T! Congrats.

Was just thinking that I haven't watched Wrath of Khan in quite a while, myself... One of my favorite scenes was the one in which Khan reupholstered the bridge of the Reliant with "fine Corrrrrinthian leather."

Subject: Attention, members of the Dark Brotherhood...


...or potential members, even... I've got a little recommendation for you all, here.

When/if you get the "Summon Spectral Assassin" power (gained after completing the "Bound Until Death" quest, I believe), I highly recommend summoning the fellow up and just walking around with him for a bit... This guy (who apparently is the ghost of Lucien Lachance from TES IV: Oblivion) is downright hysterical or, at least, has some hysterical "quotes"... One of my all time favorites (and, also, one that caught me off guard to such an extent that I laughed myself silly): "Perhaps we should find a random stranger to murder. Practice does make perfect..."

And, another similar quote you might hear if Lucien's tagging along with you in Riften: "Ah, I so do love Riften, I visited it in my youth and a thief stole from me, he took my purse and I took his eyes. It was a fair exchange."

I can sympathize with Laz, though... sometimes the inspiration just doesn't kindle up the way we'd like.

Still wishing you both the best.

Topic: AMC's The Walking Dead
Subject: I'm with Hammer...


...personally, I the character development/interaction that goes on in this show, too! I think what a lot of folks fail to realize (particualrly those that bash the show for the "soap opera" that surrounds the survivors) is that The Walking Dead is not about the zombies, it's about the survivors and their attmepts to keep on living in a world that's turned suddenly and terribly to a waking nightmare. If you want mindless zombie mashing and the hopes of "discovering the cause of the epidemic and maybe a cure" might I recommend playing any one of the Resident Evil games, or perhaps watching one of Romero's films (or any number of the flat-plotted B-movie imitators)... you'll get plenty of what you want, there, I'm sure.

On the other hand, if you want a damned entertaining look into what "survivors" are faced with day-to-day (aside from the zombies that are the catalyst for their changed existence), then, The Walking Dead is, IMO, the perfect vehicle for that kind of catharsis... Sure, the zombies are likely always on one's mind in these sorts of situations but they can't be the focus every minute of every day, can they? I mean, if all you're concerned about is mashing the next walker who's going to mind the shop, so to speak, and keep some semblance of "normalcy" in the group, right? You've got to think about keeping your "family" (whomever that may include and however it may be defined in such a changed world) alive and safe... you've got to think about feeding them, keeping them warm and sheltered, getting them to a safe place, etc... not to mention, as has been evidenced in more than one episode over both seasons of the series, so far, you've got to consider that zombies aren't the only threat to your way of life (such as it is)... In fact, it seems to me that it's been other groups of "uninfected survivors" that have posed the greatest threats to Rick and company... the zombies, as I mentioned before, have simply been the catalyst for the whole thing and serve as speed bumps and obstacles along the way more than being a "threat" on their own... *shrugs*

Anyway... *climbs down off the soap box* ... "18 Miles Out" and "Judge, Jury, Executioner" were both fanatstic episodes (and, both great examples or supporting points for my above diatribe, I think)... Lot's of surprising developments and, especially last nights episode, another one of those "OMG WTF" moments that I've come to love where the TV adaptation of this tale is concerned! I'll hold back on the spoilers as I know that many of you, for whatever reason, don't watch when the episodes are first aired but I will share a thought or two.

1) Carl - you little dumb@$$!

2) Rick - dude, get off the fence or you're going to do nothing but cement Shane's position and verify his opinion that you can't protect the group.

3) Glenn - way to impress "Daddy," kiddo. Don't take that watch he gave you for granted and quit being such a douchenozzle toward Maggie. Maybe someone needs to have the conversation with you that Lori had with Maggie concerning the whole thing last episode?

4) Dale - I was not expecting that!!! Although, in retrospect, I guess it was kind of forshadowed a bit, wasn't it? Still... daaaaaaaaaaammmmmn!

Topic: Self-Defense For Nerds: How Do You Do It?
Subject: *cringe*


Sounds like someone's not really thinking past tomorrow, doesn't it? Sure, Ria, sometimes letting loose and tearing off in the arse of someone who's bullying you or "giving you crap" is somewhat gratifying... in the moment... the thing to remember is (and I'm speaking from years of experience, here); nobody actually wins a fight... one guy just loses a little bit more than the other. And, you know, when you're young it's easy to ignore that immediate pain that comes from fighting but (also speaking from experience, here), trust me, you will feel that pain more and more as the years go on and, once you get to the point where you're not necessarily "young" anymore, you're definitely going to feel every single one of those fights from your younger days and think to yourself; "Damn! That hurts!" as you snap-crackle-and-pop your way out of bed in the morning.

Anyway... as to self-defense (and to wander away from my soap box)... I've been a martial artist for most of my life... started at around 9 yrs old with Shotokan, have studied bujinkan dojo togakure-ryu ninjutsu, Chinese Kempo, Shao-lin Five Animals, Marine Corps Martial Arts, and various others along the way but, in the end, took the "Absorb what is useful" approach from Bruce Lee's Jeet Kune Do and kind of developed my own "non-system" of "practical combat/self defense"... It's worked for me more than once and, even more importantly, it's worked for my own daughters and other folks I've trained with over the years... The first tenet where my "system" is concerned is that, in most cases, physical altercation is almost always avoidable if, by no other means, than simply ignoring the "bully" and just walking away. Words are just words, after all, and what most bullies really want out of you is your reaction... Take that away from them by not reacting and you've already won. *winks*

Besides... Facelicks are a good thing! They wipe right off (cuz our loverly innmates are always ready with an abundance of towels) and they mark you as one of ours from here until all get out!!!

Embrace the facelick, O' dear Story Teller! If nothing else, it's good fodder for a trip down the path to Tale Spinning, isn't it?



Welcome, welcome, Innmate! So very glad you decided to join us here in our little corner of the World Weird Web!

Topic: Music
Subject: Ummm...


...abject negativity much, Riaucard? Sheesh!

I'm gonna go ahead and edit that post for you and wipe some of the more scuzzy hateful stuff off... I know everyone has an opinion and, personally, I'm more than happy to let anyone express them (whether I agree or not) but, just as a little tip, here... Tact is an amazing thing... More flies with honey and all that, yes?

Nuff said on that topic... back on track...

Music... I'm all over the place where music is concerned (like a lot of the rest of you, it seems)... From classical stuff (realy like Mozart... always have) all the way on up to my "devil music" (as the wife jokingly refers to Disturbed and the like). Of all genres, I suppose, I'm least inclined towards gangster rap and 'twangy' country but, even at that, could probably be convinced to give a listen once in a (great) while.

Topic: AMC's The Walking Dead
Subject: Good episode!


I would have liked to have seen a little more "action" given that this was the first episode after a lenghty, mid-season break but, given that the mid-season "cliffhanger" was so intense and the group(s) needed to "deal" with the fallout and aftermath of all of that I think, over all, it picked up quite nicely and covered the bases it needed to cover... *nods*

Besides, that little "visit" in the bar towards the end (and the outcome of all of that) kind of made the lack of any (moving) walkers worth it. I almost didn't expect things to end up the way they did, there, and, if the previews of the coming episode are any indicator of what's to come of Rick's "end-of-discussion-quick-draw..." *shuddergrins*

And, Lori... seriously... you're pregnant in the midst of the zombie apocalypse and you're gonna get in a car and drive off into town, alone and unarmed, to look for Rick??? WTF, woman?!?!?
