First they took The Friendly Giant, then Mr. Dress-up, and now... Mr. Rogers. *weeps* Why God?! Why? *pounds fist into the ground* Take me I'm young!

I mean what about today's children? Have you even thought about the children? Who will they look up to for guidance? Fred Penner? Fuck that. Back in the day, his hippie show sucked. It still sucks. What? Barney, the TellyTubbies? You've got to be kidding me. Bert and Ernie? OK, I won't even go there. No wonder today's kids are so messed up. Trolley... you will be missed.

Follow Your Crush Around Town Because You Never Know Day!

You have a crush on somebody but you're too shy to do anything about it. So how do you get your crush to spend enough time with you to get to know who you are and realize what a wonderful person has been right in front of his or her eyes all this time?

It's about timing. What you need to do is tail your crush every hour of every day until there's another terrorist attack. This way you and your crush can take cover in a secluded underground shelter (which you will have scoped out ahead of time) and as you develop makeshift technology, dig into the soil under the concrete for food and water, and procreate so that the future generations of man might rise from the darkness, your crush will watch you over the years and start to think, "What was I doing dating all those losers? None of them would ever have thought to distill our urine into an antibacterial ointment."

And that's when you make your move!

Happy Follow Your Crush Around Town Because You Never Know Day!

Tuan's introduction to Snowman's and my respective pieces did go pretty much as he said the "Ambiguous Style" report. But it's "Ruger", not "Luger". And if anyone's barrel is shorter, it's Snowman's, as his 114mm is just 1/100th of an inch less than my 4.5" barrel. In reality, they're probably the same length, just being reported with different units, without getting into an insane number of significant digits. But his is a bit thicker and blockier than mine. He's also got a longer recoil rod, but I compensate for that by having a stiffer recoil spring. The action is also different. He usually shoots in "single action", whereby only a little bit of pressure is necessary to fire, whereas I fire "double action". His hammer is exposed; mine is not. My piece is lighter, especially when empty, but the balance point is higher, making mine more top heavy than his.

For those curious, neither mine nor his is made anymore. Check out the Sigma SW9F and the Ruger P85 stainless.

But Tuan was certainly right about one thing. Don't touch a man's piece unless he lets you. But if he lets you, do so with authority - none of this limp-wristed foolishness, like you're afraid of it.

I see Greg has seen the DOA V-Ball commericals. . . . Final call for PS2 modchips. I'll probably be placing an order soon. Note to Authorities: I am not currently in possession of any modchips. Check back in a few weeks :-p

By Ming - 8:29 p.m. | (0) comments | Post a Comment

OK, it finally happened... I ran outta Cheetos. So enjoy:

Woo Style.

I knew there was trouble the moment I knocked on Greg's door. Behind the door all I could hear was someone murmuring. The tone was low, guttural, like that of a beast. Hesistant. I opened the door... only to find Greg stroking his brand new 9mm pistol. He looked like a man possessed. Feral, ravenous, reeking of gunpowder. He kept chanting, "I am the Angel of Darkness, I am the Angel of Darkness."

The place was a mess. It looked like World War III had broken out and someone forgot to tell his neighbours. The walls were riddled with bullet holes. Chalk outlines littered the floors. The stench of death lingered in the air. Body bags strewn about. Hell, A smoking crater was all that was left of the apartment next door! Greg's only explanation was, "They are all against me. They all must pay!"

Snowman did his job well. Perhaps a bit too well. You see, he had gotten Greg into this little hobby and now Greg's better armed than the local law enforcement. By the way, Snowman's leaving town. Fully aware of the monster he is about to unleash on the public. Clever. Very clever...

A menacing gleam flashed across the newf's eyes, "See how easy it is Tuan? This is the trigger - and this is the thing you point at what you want to diiiieee!"

"Greg... put the gun down.", I pleaded. To which Greg replied: "From my cold dead hands! Bitch!" Then he jumped up on what was left of the coffee table and shouted, "Foo! you bes not be messin wit mah gat! Now dance mothafuckah!" He had me in his sights. I leapt for the shotgun lying on the floor. I knew the madness had to end... Here. Now.

A firefight ensued the likes of which John Woo had never seen. I dove for cover while Greg proceeded to go Chow Yun-Fat on my ass. I was deafened by the hail of gun fire. The last thing I heard before it all went black was - "No women. No kids."

Well ok, maaaybee it didn't go quite exactly like that. Now that I think about it. It was more like this:

Ambiguous Style.

So I was over at Greg's place and right away he proceeded to show me his piece. He was quite proud of his new toy and kept stroking it gently. He assured me the outer shell was made of plastic, not latex. And that it was not prone to go off in my hands. His piece was quite rigid and firm to the touch. Indeed. Greg had erected a fine piece. I was quite amazed by the heft of it for a 9mm unit.

Later. Snowman dropped by and they proceeded to discuss at great length, the size of their respective gun barrels. A war of words soon broke out, but in the end Greg finally admitted that although his was shorter it was about as thick. Get this. They even gave names to their pieces. Greg calls his "Smith & Wesson" and Snowman likes to refer to his piece as "Luger". Odd.

We all stood there, admiring each other's pieces. I took a good look at Snowman's piece and it was made of metal. I thought that rather strange until he assured me most men conceal their metal pieces. I asked why would you need to conceal it. He told me it was a criminal offense to wave your piece around in public. You could put an eye out...

The moral of the story? Never touch another man's piece unless he gives you permission.

DAMN YOU AND YOUR LAME-ASS POLL! I voted "is a woman", and was disappointed to find out that the poll didn't work. For the record, the internet asked, "Are you a girl?" Stupid internet.

And I _WILL_ play DOA Volleyball with Ming and Tuan sometime during my lifetime. That is a certainty.

Greg, I feel your pain - sorta. I almost dinged the car. Only this time it was "Mr. Wooden Post meet Miss Front Bumper". Traction not bad on the street, turn into my driveway - sheet of ice. Lovely. Snow, I don't have any problem with. Ice, is just fucking annoying. My buddy's WRX wagon needs a new bumper after an encounter with ice. Hope the damage isn't too costly to the lower bumper, G. Peace.

As a followup to the non-working poll options.. have you ever searched for yourself in google using the phrase " is a"?

Here's what came up:

"Greg is a smartass"
"Ming is a 7 1/2-foot beacon of pride for Asians"
"Tuan is a little chubby"
"Sabrina is a busty brunette babe and she's available for your party! Call today!"
"Chantal" is a TRANSGENDERED oriented, ADULT web-site!"
"Aluminum (Al) is a widely dispersed metal being found in igneous rocks, shales, clays and most soils. "
"Frosty The Snowman Is A Right-Wing Plot"
"Tuan Vantu, Canada, Please bring the Transformers to DVD for a generation of old and new fans alike. Thank you."

I also got blue case fans cause there weren't any non-bling bling ones around. I hear it's "all the rage" with the kids these days.

It's cool Mingus, pretty sure we'll get Anstey to take up the chicken wing slack. Actually, my secret plan is to get him to eat enough spicy wings til he develops a condition known as "explosive diarrhea" commonly known as "the shits".

Ming if you ever start a site, it HAS to be called something along the lines of "Subterranean Level 5." No. Better yet. "Frampton Comes Alive!", It'd be a porn site about persons straddling subwoofers of course. ;)

How goes the mod-chip plans by the way? Note to the authorities: If you are reading this Ming <- has the DVD burner and Ming <- has the chips *wink, wink*.

Alright. I finally escaped long enough from work to find a nice spot on the hallway. As for wings, I'd love to. . . . unfortunately I have to work.

God forsaken digital voice utility doesn't work and one of my co-workers can come home until it's fixed. . . . Normally, I wouldn't be complaining, especially if it was my fault. Why is it not my fault? I got this project two weeks ago, and the thing was a complete and utter disaster. My boss: "Ming, I need your help with this. It has to be done oh 6 months ago. . . ." I hate FORTRAN.

That's enough venting for now. On another note, I just got my DVD-RW drive installed along with a couple of case fans. I haven't quite grasped the concept of why in the blue hell people put coloured LEDs on case fans, but now my computer sheds "cool" blue light as well as burn 4.7GB discs of sweet goodness. Why did I get fans with blue LEDs? Because they were cheap, and they just so happened to match my case.

I hope y'all are up for wings tomorrow. It is a requirement that Tuan and also Ming make the journey.

And I think I may need to check out Strange Adventures to see if they have those Muppets action figures... Peter informs me that they have Zoot, who, in case you were wondering, is the greatest of all Muppets.

By al - 10:19 p.m. | (0) comments | Post a Comment

Anyway, I'm going back home, away from the computer. I might check in tomorrow to see if there are any new postings, especially as regards Snowman or chicken wings or travelling for the purposes of seeing one or eating the other.

No. No menage. And anyone who smokes enough to warrant rolling them herself is in to the vice a bit too much, even if she were hot. And she's not quite right, motor-controlwise. She seems to have some sort of physical disorder. She seems fine mentally, though. But it makes rolling cigarettes even more difficult.

But hey, 30 seconds of fumbling with a girl's merchandise...a personal best! :-)

By Silent_G - 9:46 p.m. | (0) comments | Post a Comment

Now the question we're all asking is: Was she hot? And did she invite you to a Menage-a-Greg?

I have fixed my nickname. Seems my user name wasn't the default name. Oh well. This internet thing is weird. At least no one's asked me if I'm a girl. Well, no one's asked me recently. Although a girl (or woman, as they are sometimes called) in my apartment building dropped by tonight, asked if I could roll her a cigarette. After fumbling with the gadget she had which, supposedly, I presume, should make doing such things easier, for about 30-40 seconds, I gave up, and she left, saying that she'll wait for her boyfriend to get home. An odd encounter, as life goes. Now, why her boyfriend lacked the foresight to leave her with a supply of smokes, I'll never know. Or why she would take up rolling her own cigarettes when she lacks the ability to do so, I'll never know that either. It would make for an interesting philosophical discussion sometime. Perhaps Al would know. He knows many things.

Regarding Greg and Chantal's emails and the fact that Snowman is leaving I found the message at quite prophetic...

Don't worry I took the liberty of looking up the rest of ya. :) - I won't comment too much. You've suffered in silence for long... Shit. I mean... for awhile now. There, there, friend, it's ok. You can still live a normal life. - Yes we know you're not just for cookware anymore... and cum sound like a freight train. What?! It's NOT a porn site? Sorry, my bad. :) - Yer site's busted dude. So I tried and all was well. :) - That picture is a frikkin dead ringer for our 'ol pal Mingus is it not? - Still under development eh? Typical engineers, rule the fucking world my ass. - I'm surprised you haven't registered I was half expecting a Christmas or greeting card site. Well, a porn site at the very least. And yes Snowman I am also deeply saddened by the death of Jam Master Jay. - Well, well, well. Apparently our good friend Jayme... <in best Austin Powers voice> is a MAN baybee! - Yes I'm well aware I'm still on dial-up, thank you very much... - Good gawd man! You need better taste in music. Seriously. Opera? Yeesh... - Smitty... your site is quite gay. Trust me on this one. - Too girly. Needs work. :)

Since these links'll end up in the Archive later. I wonder how many of them well ultimately become assimilated by that wonderful thing I like to call... porn.

Almost forgot, met Peter yesterday. Money changed hands as payment for getting him ANIMAL!!! Sorry, Animal, from the Muppets action figure line. I've steered clear of the Muppets, up until this point. But Rizzo the Rat I must say, is the shat. I'd be tempted to get Gonzo, but quite frankly, his chicken fetish scares me.

On anime.

If you guys haven't downloaded Macross Zero from Kazaa already. Do it. Now. Don't argue, just drop whatever you're doing and peep THE most gorgeous animation since Macross Plus. Geoffie, you'll be happy to hear the F-14 and Mig-21 make an appearance. :) Haven't seen an SU-27's yet, but keeping fingers crossed. The transformation sequence for the VF-0 prototype valkyrie - alone - is worth the price of admission. Aw who am I kidding, it's frikkin free. So go get it.

Also, the Ghost In The Shell TV series is quite good. I can't wait til the sequel comes out.

So I have yet to recieve a call from overseas, but I expect it would go a *little* something like this: Tuan wakes up from his wonderful dream with 'The Twins'. "Awww Christ now I gotta wash the sheets again?!" Tuan races for the reciever. "Hel--" Interrupted by a woman's voice. "This is Aliant Telecom. You have a collect call from..." "KOWEAA!" "Do you accept the charges?" "Collect call? Ummm... I dunno, yeah I guess so." "Thank you... Please hold while a group of burly men come fuck you in the ass." "NO! WAIT!"
