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.

I'm not sure if KBZ should be banned from here for his story, or go into porn of some sort...

Or both.

If it was over the line, I'll gladly remove it.    Sorry.  :(

Not a urine story, but a close call with numero dos.  So I'll give a poop warning for those who might not want to read ahead - sorry in advance if this gets a little gross


About 6 weeks ago I was participating in a 24 hour film race with some friends of mine from work.  Now, often when I'm out of my element for extended periods of time, I don't...well...crap.  So, I'd been awake for 25 or 30 hours without emptying the old bowels so to speak (it had probably been almost 40 hours since last relieving said bowels if you include the previous night's sleep...

...and I had to take my girlfriend to the airport around 9:30 a.m.  After dropping her off, I was supposed to drop her car off at our repair shop that is just down the street then get my car from my place and drive straight back to the editing suites.

The guy there offered me a ride home, but I passed since we live about a block away.  Well...while I was walking home I realized it was more like 5 blocks away...

Now I suppose that whole not pooping when I'm not in familiar surroundings thing was suddenly not in effect anymore, because around 3 blocks from my home...well, the feeling came over me.  By one block away, I was forcably flexing my ass to keep from ruining my day.   Running only made it much worse.

By the time I got to my building, I was seriously convinced that I wouldn't make it - and I was sweating badly.

I'll end by saying that I literally made it by mere seconds - and the object I gave birth to was a healthy 18 inches minimumm in length.  I doubt it will ever be equalled, by me at least...

Sorry again

I should take them up on their offer and become a real Ice Cream Maker Guy

Sadly, I'm starting to think we'd have a better chance at getting an ICM Guy figure if you did...  :(

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Has Anyone Built a Deck Before?
« on: June 16, 2004, 05:00 PM »
I don't have tips for digging post holes, but I did help build a deck for two days once trying to make some extra cash for a Rome trip I was about to go on.

It was actually easier (in terms of technical difficulties) than I thought it would be...but it was a lot of hard work.

It came out nicely though.  :)

Good luck.

Might as well close the whole site down now... I'm sure 80% of the members here will follow Durge right back over to the scum...  :-\

I'm in love with the shot in the trailer of the entire army surrounding Li as they walk with him, swords and staffs pointed, to what I assume is the capital of whatever city he's going for his revenge on...

When's the U.S. release going to happen???

The only things about RS that I find to be "better" than JD are:

-Vintage Community
-Other Collectibles Community
-Prop Community
-Customizing Communtiy

I'm pretty sure blasphemy such as this is grounds for dismissal under the Jedi Defender Superiority Decree.

My friend's got it on DVD from the foreign release... I want to see this movie soooooo bad but decided to just wait for it in theaters here.

I keep watching the trailer over and over.

It looks amazing.

Thank Quentin Tarentino for pushing for a U.S. release.
