Hey now, the first half of the delay was Rob not having any money at the time I had all the clones. To be fair though, the bigger chunk of time was caused by me packing up all my figures in the move and then not finding them until about a month ago.

It's just like my situation with you Matt. We're just equally lazy.† ;D

But if you have clones too, I think he's still looking for some colors that I'm missing, so you two are welcome to cut me out of the deal if needed. Although I'd miss claiming the new record for longest deal ever,† my armies could always use a few more recruits anyway. ;)

Oops, we're going off topic.

Ahem----eh, Rebelscum sucks! Yeah, that's the ticket.

There, now I fit in again.† :P

Yeah, money was tight once upon a time - but now it's no big deal at all.  I think originally I just wanted to wait a week or three so it could be put on the next credit card statement or something like that.   Still, you moving and then not being able to find them, and then not having your room unpacked, and then not sending the pictures accounts for 95% of the delay (don't take that the wrong way, I'm amused and totally happy with the whole thing so far).

Ah, a posession.

It's a start but we need to get the actual ghost in here.

You know, someone did that once with Comic Results for Fred "ReRun" Berry

Yeah but he's dead now too so we all know how that worked out.

I agree though - I'll remove it - from now on predictions or near-death won't get credit.

Of course, once he does die that will be the thread they discuss it in - so whoever posts it first will get credit.

Either way, this one is going down in history!

Okay.  It might be time to re-evaluate.  Or maybe I'm just being impatient.

We're in business.

Now we just wait a little while to see if the Ghost shows up.  Then if  he doesn't we'll re-evaluate and say some more mumbo jumbo.

If that fails, we start looking for the non-believer among us - altough at the moment we probably need more people.

The word "old" appears in the thread title and Morgbug is the first to reply.


Today at work for reasons that are beyond even myself, I came across a website explaing, in terms a child could understand, just what one must do to talk to the dead.

So I thought it would be a good idea to conjue up the Ghost of Virex.


Step 1:† Learn What Seances Are.
A sťance (pronounced SAY-ahnce) is a meeting at which a group of people attempts to contact a spirit and communicate with it.† †

Now we know.

Step 1:† Check

Step 2:† Create An Exclusive Believers-Only Invitation List.
Stick to people who are open-minded. This is a definite MUST - ghosts respond only to those who believe in them (a reasonable request, we think).

Okay, so if you don't believe in the ghost of Virex - get out.

Step 2:† Check

Step 3:† Set Up A Spirit-Friendly Environment
As even the unbelievers know, ghosts are supposed to come out at night, so plan your sťance for sometime after the sun goes down. A night with a bright, full moon would be a nice touch and could set the mood, but it isn't necessary.

Watto's Junk Yard is spirit friendly right?

Step 3:† Check

Step 4:† Prep The Participants
1.† Select a medium. If you don't want to be the medium (that is, the person conducting the sťance) have someone who has been to a sťance or is particularly in tune with their sixth sense do the job.

2.† Once a medium is established, let him/her lead the group. A sťance should be held in an orderly fashion, without random participants yelling out, "When will I get married?" as soon as the spirit arrives. Make sure this is clear to everyone before proceeding.

3.† Decide on whom to call over from the other side. It is a good idea to pick a spirit beforehand, so you'll at least know who you're dealing with (your lovable old Nana, as opposed to an axe murderer). It's also a good idea to choose someone who has recently passed away - spirits who have lived on the other side for more than a couple of decades tend to not want to be bothered and might get angry if they are.

4.† Charge the candles. Have the participants hold each candle in their hands and visualize its symbolic power emanating from it. For example, if you are holding a white candle, picture strands of peaceful smoke curling up from it. Each candle should be passed to and charged by each participant before being lit and returned to the center of the table.

I'll be the medium - someone else get the candles.

Step 4:† Check

Step 5:† Summon The Spirit
Blah Blah Blah - instructions link.

Let's pretend we just did all the stuff in that link.

Step 5:† Check

Step 6:† Re-evaluate The Situation If The Seance Doesn't Work Right Away
If it turns out that you followed all these steps but couldn't get a ghost to visit, it might be because someone in your sťance group doesn't really believe in ghosts, deep down inside. As the meditation and chanting was going on, consciously he/she was thinking, "Wow, this is creepy," but subconsciously, he/she was going, "Yeah, right." You can resolve the issue by shining a bright light in each person's face and interrogating them mercilessly, or you can just try holding the sťance with different combinations of people to weed out the pseudo-believers.

Hopefully this won't be an issue.

Step 6:† Check

[Mumbo Jumbo] We call upon you oh ghost of Virex...[/Mumbo Jumbo]

I'm scared.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: 2004 DVD Release List
« on: October 27, 2004, 11:48 AM »
I don't know of any sites that have a list of all dvd's but there are more things transferred than not at this point.

I had a slow week this week - picked up Scanners, Dawn of the Dead and Fahrenheit 451.

I also finally have an updated and complete (minus bootlegs) collection listing:

Do keep in mind that a few of these (like the Legally Blonde movies) belong to my girlfriend.

We shouldn't have any FA bench spots since we made it through 12 rounds

Simon should set a time for when the league goes active so everyone has a fair chance at the FA's

Ah, okay.  Didn't realize the roster was 12.

So when does free agency start?

Also, could someone remind me of how many bench slots we have to sign FA's?
