Original Trilogy Collection / Re: OTC Visual Carded Checklist
« on: July 2, 2004, 11:05 AM »
Wow, those look cool altogether like that!  Nice work Scott.

This just infuriates me even more that they didn't start up with the OTC design at the beginning of this entirely OT focused year, but at least they're recarding a lot of the early 2004'ers it looks like...   8)

Yeah, I know not everyone digs 'em, but I sure as hell do!   ;)

Best packaging ever.  Too bad I'll only be buying 7 of them though...  Damn shame.

Quoting myself...in a move that partially makes me sick to my stomach, I'm now seriously contemplating buying these figures that I already have, because the packaging is everything I've ever wanted from Hasbro style-wise for the whole 9 years.

I sure hope that after this run of re-packs there will be some fresh sculpts on this cardback.

None of them...Titan does have an atmosphere though which is mostly Nitrogen (like ours is)

Maybe a few hundred years from now after ruining Mars humans might be able to try terraforming Titan by initiating reactions to make Oxygen

Kinda like Total Recall????

I can see it now, Arnold Schwartzeneggar saying:  "Getcha ass to Titan."

Very cool.  Can't wait for the pictures to start coming in.

One question - and the answer might be in those articles, but since I don't have time to read them all tonight I'll ask anyway.

Why does it have to thread a gap in the rings to settle into orbit?  Seems there's a whole lot of Saturn that doesn't have rings around it that they could approach from.

Or does it have something to do with gravity?  Or, did they just want to take pictures from close to the rings?

While the teacher is hot no doubt, I can't stand up and cheer the kid on.

One of my favorite high school teachers was accused of having an inapprorpiate relationship with a student about a year after I graduated and left for college.

It must have been true because he killed himself over it.  It was not a fun time - particularly for his son, who went to school with us and who we all knew.

Ah, thanks for the clarification.

Nice work both of you.  Newman, what kinda trouble did you end up getting in over there?

Thereby proving that Moore is definitely not “fringe” as some would like to believe… well, he is at least more popular than the Wayans brothers.

Well he was fringe once upon a time...Bowling for Columbine was the beginning of the end of that though - and with this one he just blew up as far as notoriety.

Watto's Junk Yard / So Master Newman's work doesn't go unseen.
« on: June 28, 2004, 09:54 PM »
I saw this at the Scum a night or two ago - and believe he was suspended or banned pretty much right after it was posted and the thread appears to have been immediately deleted...

The craft is a little lacking, but the intent is definitely there.

If this is inappropriate let me know and I'll remove it - I just thought it was worth a laugh.

Master Newman, I hope you didn't mind me saving your image and sharing it with others.

Whallah.

I'm playing the Resident Evil re-work for Gamecube.  After that I think I'm going to play KOTOR and/or Resident Evil Code Veronica X.

Just got back. Fantastic. Pretty much what I expected. Not too much new info for me in there, but for someone who doesn't pay attention to the news, and the news that isn't BIG news, there's lots of new things to learn about George Bush, his ties to the Saudis, and his ties to a lot of other disturbing things...

Moore's editing, as we all know by now, is horribly precise and creative to create a feel. But not condusive to lies or lying. He's got irrefutable point after irrefutable point.

Everyone should see it at least once, at very least it will stir discussion and hopefully rile people up enough to drive down to the local YMCA for 3 minutes in November to cast a little ballot.

It's a point of view film.  From day one Moore has called it an op/ed piece.  It's part irrefutable fact, part one man's opinion.  What's bunk about that?

wow, i didn't realize so many people hated michael moore  ???

Without turning this thread nasty - it's gotten downright tiresome.  They can't catch him in a lie, yet they call him a liar all day long... or, even better, just resort to fat jokes.  They accuse him of creative editing like it's something new and of him making fake documentaries.  Even Moore himself (if you saw the Daily Show yesterday?) says that his movies are not unbalanced and not 'fair' - that he's got a point of view, and he is going to show it to you.  He says there is a certain portion of his film that is irrefutable fact, and a portion that is his opinion.  He's even referred to the movie as an op-ed piece.  

You don't have to agree with him, but when all you do to try to debunk his movie is to call him fat or a liar - you lessen your position considerably.  He's got an enormous ******* team to prevent errors and head-off any accusations of lying... Usually the people who don't like him, are the ones who read the Newsmax article and took them at their word - even though places like those are often the ones under attack, and thus are only fighting back.

Whatever though.  I'll (assuming I can get tickets) be seeing it tonight at 10:30.
