There IS a way you can file share using a ClarisWorks communications document and the printer ports of the computers, but it didn't work for me and made a mess.

Although I haven't played it in some time, Exile II will always be just about the greatest game ever made. It was the first Spiderweb Software product I ever registered, and was, in fact, the first game at all I registered. The number of days I'd spend 6 hours after a school buzzing through the Vahnatai lands were countless but so much fun...even though I used the hint book! (granted, it's impossible without that thing) The graphics are so nice and classy, with such vibrant colors, and up until you beat the game there's always something new to do. Plus, the story is so deep, with so many sideplots. Exile I, III, and BoE will always be better than their Avernic counterparts since they're so vivid, but Crystal Souls will always be better even than them.

Exile II is the cadillac of games.

As stated by Mitch Hedburg:My apartment is infested with koala bears. It's the cutest infestation ever! Way better than cockroaches. When I turn on the lights a bunch of koala bears scatter, and i don't want them to, and I'm like "hey, hold on, fellas! Lemme hold one of you." Koala Bears they're so cute. Why do they have to be so far away from me? We need to ship a few over, and I will apprehend one, and hold him, and pet him on the back of his head.
Does that make you feel any better, Stewey?

The critics tend to not know what they're talking about. So I decided to look back over this year and think about the movies 2006 spawned, and especially which ones grew up to be worthy Blockbusters...or at least worthy mentions.

Excluding everything before June simply because I don't remember what came out, for best movies I nominate...

Borat—
Alright. So the 15-minute scene with the naked guys wrestling was 15 minutes longer than it should have been. This movie still succeeded in painting a picture of America nobody else had the guts to do. It was funny because it was true, and actually made me think. For example, did anyone else notice that the group of black guys Borat met were the nicest and friendliest people in almost the entire movie? Considering the negative connotations so many people hold with that crowd, it was something that really made me happy and say "told you so." Sasha Baron Cohen has more guts than a pound of sausage. It made a great date movie (awkward).

Snakes on a Plane—It was cheesy. It was gross. I will grant both of those. But it was a pretty stinkin' cool movie none-the-less. It's tough to say exactly why, although having Samuel L. Jackson playing in a movie with a title like that definitely merits some positive reviews. It looks like the producers knew people were going to expect goofiness and just hammed it up as much as possible. It's not going to win any Oscars, but they hammed it well.

Sixteen Blocks—As action movies go, this one was funny at times, meaningful and touching at others, and had a lot of explosions the rest of the time; fun for the whole family! I was impressed that a movie about a hostage situation in the middle of Manhattan had any real depth. This movie was pulled off with a nice deal of emotional and personal realism as well as some Bond-worthy suspense.

Bad movies need loving too...

When A Stranger Calls—
Oh no! The plot is moving around in the guest bedroom! We can't let it find us!

An honorable mention...

Silent Hill—
It wasn't really bad. It would have been good if it wasn't so wantonly violent. It certainly did a good job of scaring the bejeezus out of me and my date. But plot-wise, this movie was really kind of interesting and had some...well...maybe a little overused but interesting insights (I'm going to get a lot of crap for that). It was easy to tell which were the good parts: the faces of the couple in front of us were glued to the screen during the good parts, and glued to each other during the bad parts (about half the time).

Alright, so anyone else have nominations to make?

Just to add to the confusion, did anyone else notice that "Spiderweb Software" is an anagram of "word-bereft...uh...donkey-wipe"?

That doesn't really sound like us. How insulting.

Apparently, Jesus' birthday was sometime in the spring, closer to Easter (eenteresting...). Keeping vigil all night over flocks of sheep is something shepherds almost always do during the springtime, whatever the reason is, and so this part of the scripture suggests Jesus was more of an Aries than a Capricorn. Besides, the Good Book never says anything about snow, methinks.

Merry Christmas. Divorce global warming.

Song quote, perhaps?

I think so. I've heard that song a couple times before.

Actually, I imagine there's a number of songs with that title. The one I was thinking of is by the RX Bandits.

Not quite. :) This one's by Mariah Carey. It was kind of burned into my brain when the school's Dance Team decided to perform to the thing in midriff shirts and miniskirts for the Senior Citizens Center. Hawt dang, was that akward.

Actually, the Dance Team does more or less the same routine every year, along with the Show Choir doing "Santa Baby" in likewise slight clothing. When the school didn't budget the performance for the senior citizens in this year, the old folks went beserk, called the AARP on the school and threatened not to vote for any more of our pro-education tax levies. They were only happy when the senior class donated $800 to host them. I blame it on the 80 guys.

Nursing homes have more hormones than high school does, I swear.

'Sasquatch' sounds like something related to a pumpkin. Or maybe some kind of corn bread.

There was a resolution trying to be passed at the Senior Ohio Model United Nations conference this year. It went a little something like this:

quote:

Nation: Bhutan
SUBJECT: Migoi Preservation

WHEREAS, the Migoi "yeti" is known the world over as a mysterious zoological beast by renowned scientists, and

WHEREAS, evidence and sightings across the planet such as the short film of Bigfoot wlaking in a river bank in 1967 by Roger Patterson fuel the dive to help the world realize that the beast is face, and

WHEREAS, a recent expedition by several renowned zoologists in eastern Bhutan discovered a substantial amount of animal hair whose DNA did not match any other known animal species or human, and

WHEREAS, the animal is fact and needs to be recognized as an endangered species and should be protected along with the environment in which it lives, and

WHEREAS, such achievements have been made in other predominant countries where it is illegal to hunt the Migoi's cousin, the Sasquatch, and

WHEREAS, the kingdom of Bhutan has also strived for success in this field with the opening of the Sakten Wildlife Sanctuary as a means to protect the beast from extinction, and

WHEREAS, the kingdom of Bhutan is now having substantial trouble financing the park's maintenances and rangers who patrol the area, and

WHEREAS, the park has helped lead the way with the preservation and protection of the animal with also having a bright future of showing other countries how to help this world wide issue, and

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that this great council creates a committee of zoologists and other great leasders in the science of mammals and the statures of which the animal community is protected and preserved to
1. Help spread the knowledge to the rest of the world that the beast is factual.
2. Provide a seat on the world endangered species list for the Migoi.
3. Find the means to supply foreign aid to help lessen the burden of the Sakten Wildlife Sanctuary on the people of Bhutan.
4. Help educate other countries where the Migoi and its relatvies are populous, on how to protect the creature and its environment such as the efforts set forth by the Bhutanese people and the Sakten Wildlife Sanctuary.

Now there's some food for thought.

Well, you gotta admit, at least the telescope's names aren't confusing. Although calling them "The Omnipotent All-Powerful Eye of Zeus-oscope" or "Titan's Retna" or something would have been a little more imaginative.

Funny. People are always so proud of using less electricity than everyone else, or always having some emergency kit on hand, or just simply don't realize how much everyone relies on that good ol' flow of electrons. Then, once the lights go out, everyone's just as screwed as everyone else.
