Yah, Ripper. Yer right. Maybe napalm would take care of him, or greek fire, but. . . darn. It might be the end of the world as he turned people into more nepharius vampires like him. And that's without considering the possibility that he might evolve into a digital vampire. Then it would really suck.

I like the shirt. If all goes well I may get it in a couple of months. I'll try to borrow a camera, take a picture, and post it. (doing the same with the underwear would eradicate the forum for ever and give everybody nightmares for the rest of their lives and that of all their future descendants. there might also be the side-effect of the possible destruction of the world.)

Gizmo, a list eventually made it to about 5550, but internet gremlins messed around with the place where it was. Fine, fine people are working on bringing the site back. In the meantime, as you saw from Aran's link he's got up to 4100 saved an stored, and I have about 90% (if not 100%) saved in another computer that is now in the repair shop. Thank Fu Lee the list still survives.

Yikes, that Mazhismo person really gave credence his/her name in a bad way.

In addition to the three films mentioned by TLoE, Scorcese has also done the best movie about Jesus Christ in the history of American (don't wanna risk including the whole world) Film: The Last Temptation of Christ The only movie I've seen recently (as in the last ten or so years, a little more than that actually) about Christ that I thought was very well done was Jesus of Montreal, with Mel Gibson's The Passion as arguably the worst ever made. (though that's just my opinion, and apparently the Pope disagrees, so, maybe Gibson's film is the best. what do I know?)

Anyway.

Scorcese's The Age of Innocence is also brilliant. He made the only good segment in New York Stories "Life Lessons."
After Hours is one Marty's most underrated films.

Hmmm. Raging Bull is rather brilliant.

Thanks Thuryl.

After many people recommenind me Evangelion I risked it and bought the set for Neon Genesis Evangelion. I haven't watched it yet, but within a month or two I'll know if I made a mistake. Hope not.

Aran: it made sense to me.

Edit: now that I've read the quote at the top of this page, I see that NGE was mentioned. Should've added 2 + 2.

Avernum 4 will be a while. Lately, I think, Jeff has been putting out two games or so a year. So, Avernum 4 may be ready late this year, early 2006.

As for Geneforge 3. When you see a call for beta testing, then you may start getting excited. (I think Jeff has announced beta testing for all his recent games??) Until then, the less you think, the faster time will go (or so I've been told. Doesn't really work.)

Intel, so I've heard, is going to release its onw version of the Mac Mini.

Blades of Geneforge in Geneforge Series

It's a good thing that something like The Lyceum exists.

I'm not a programmer, and each time I've tried to make a scenario, I'm so scared that I stop. I've mapped a couple, but only on paper.

Knowing that an Editor is bugged and the makers of that editor don't care much about those problems may work as an obstacle for anybody wanting to create an scenario using that editor. Some members of this community may not even know that there are alternative places where they can go to seek information and help.

BoA has had a patch or two (I don't know if they helped or not), but after playing both Exiles and Averna (thanks TM) I think that if I ever conquered my fear and designed an scenario I might end up choosing BoE. I like the 2d look. Avernum looks fine, but sometimes it bothers me.

A Blades of Geneforge (you think Blades as a name is apporpiate? would Shapes of Genforge be too dumb a name?) might be interesting.

One thing I always wonder when I play the GF games is: what is going on in the world? We hear bits and pieces only.

As creative and brilliant as this community can when making scenarios, I get goosebumps when I think what they could do if they put their brains together to work on expanding the world of Geneforge (what is the name of the world, btw?)

If the Geneforge Editor proved malleable enough to allow a lot of customization, then. . . wow.

As for the Avernum 4 coming after BoA. . . aside from whatever disgust it may cause me, I see this as the relationship that exist between Lucas and his licensed products:

Lucas has complete control over the films in his saga, and has left the other products on their own. Those who have written the books have created some kind of organic universe. A book by one author may refer to characters/events created by another writer. It's been years since I've read a SW book, because I got tired of them, so I don't know if this true anymore.

So, the Blades communities have their own life which, pretty much, Jeff ignores. This also includes the works done concerning Emerian's story.

Homeland? Dink Smallwood?

Well. . . at least I can seriously say I've never seen such an august collection of RPGs put together in a list of favorite RPGs.

13 choices to choose from.

Indeed.

(wait. . . this poll was done in October '04? wow. I think the different choices were put there as kind of. . . an illusion? The poll is really about SpidWeb games. The rest are meant to throw us off. I hope.)

Edit: Sorry, sorry. Didn't mean to meander off topic.

Favorite? Hmmm... Will original "Rogue" be considered an RPG? Well, that one and "Akalabeth"
(I'm serious. At least those are among my favorite, and are kinda old.)

I voted for Homeland. I guess I lied in the poll. Well, I was honest about the passion I feel towards that game.

At least it doesn't get confused with Manuel like Miguel does all the time.

ST: I'm glad to see there's another human being (besides a critic or two, and a friend or two) who thought SKatWoT was brilliant.

Alorael, Aran, and any other non-film seeing person: I see enough movies for about a thousand of you since I see any piece of crap that comes out. You ain't missing much, if anything. A good year, like 1999, is an exception (as in great). Last year was also an exception (as in sucky chop sooey!). I think an average year has about 5 or so fine films, some good ones, a dozen or so decent ones and the rest from mediocre to "I'd rather sit in a plaza while a horde of pidgeon drop their wast on me."
(I'm so bad I went to see "Killing me Softly" (never mind)last week even though I knew I was going to hate it because it was the only one out I hadn't seen. And that's regardless of whether I have or not a social life. I've got celluloid in me blood, so if a Vampire bites me he starts moving 24 frames a second. The bad thing is only fire can really kill him, and even then not completely. Good thing there ain't no such thing as vampires. Right?)

Constantine the movie is not Hellblazer the comic.

(roughly 75 days left. why can't i fast forward life, get to the point i want to be and then pause it for a while before i rewind to the point i used to be. doggone it.)

I thought you lived in a gym that belonged to your family during the Middle Ages, maybe the first ever gym in the world, and that throughout the centuries the name had changed to "Jim" your surname.

As for your first name, I figure you either had had a date in Cairo that you really like (as opposed of the evil kind), or more than likely, your parents loved the name (maybe it reminded them of where they had met, or where they had had a tordid love affair or where they had hidden the map to an immense fortune whose first clue was encrypted in your name.)

Never imagined you lived in Cairo, but it did crossed my mind that you had visited it and being a camel herder magnate at one point or another.

I'm terrible at this.

Hi, sorry about the Spanish part, I thought it would be more personal since that's my native language (spring, my Spanish is as fluid as my English and both as fluid as rapids: rough, continually broken, and often nearly incomprehensible.)

What I said before was:

And even if it is in a way that breaks, in a way, the space-time continuum, please allow me to tell you, Divine Lady of the SpiderWeb: May you be welcomed, again, to the threshold of the twilight zone where sanity and insanity mingled in a wonderful coctail.

(or something like that.)

There are already was a cool film similar to this with Tommy Lee Jones (which was done for TV in 70's and, I think, it can still face up to this new, higher budget film. But that's just me)

But, it was a solid biopic, I suppose. Well told, I thought, but trapped within the confines of its own genre. Still, some rather fine acting. And, acting aside, it does boast Kate Beckinsale as Ava Gardner. *Blink.* Kate Beckinsale as Ava Gardner.

So, if you don't mind the subject matter, like planes, period films, and the kind of melodrama you can associate with the theme, then Toenail, sure, give it a shot.

Constantine the movie is not Hellblazer the comic.

Being a victim of native language tyranny, I pronounce most names as they're written. Except those that are English like Bob or Peter.

Alorael- A (short) lo (as in lopez) rael (soft r) But if the A is longer or "ai" . . . (accent on the A)

Kelandon- Que lan (land) don (as in the Spanish don) (accent on ke)

Thuryl- Zu ril (short i) (accent on thu, notice a pattern?)

Arancaytar- Aran (like the spanish verb mentioned above) cay (kite) tar (as in tar, the substance) (accent on ran)

Hmmm. So you know how I've been butchering your names. . . Ouch.

(Luke Skywalker: "I care.")

Actually, Jamie Foxx was nominated for Collateral

Indeed Oscars are a highly lobbyist procedure. The Studios (more than any individual person) do indeed spend quite a lot of money in their campaigns which begin before the nominations are cast, then continue until Oscar night.

Miramax, for example, is one of the masters at this. The fact that they won for Shakespeare in Love could be used as an example. (That year Saving Private Ryan seemed to be almost a sure bet.)

The Oscars are funny, too, because as some people have said, winners of supporting acting awards specially, it can completely kill your career. Tommy Lee Jones made a joke about that way back when he won for The Fugitive

The Oscars also pull some darn silly stunts. They forbid John Drexler from singing the song for which he had been nominated, "Al Otro Lado del Rio." Instead they put Antonio Banderas (not a singer by any strecth of the imagination. In fact if you saw the performance, he didn't sing, per se) It was nice to see Mr. Drexler singing a couple of stanzas from it as his thank you speech.

The way they treated the "small" awards this time around was, frankly, beyond insulting. Some of them they just put together in the stage like some kind of of line-up either for a Police Identification thingy or one of those darn pageants. Also, they cut them up even sooner than other people.

Whatever importance actors, directors, and others of the so-called "big awards" may have in a movie, those who work in editing, costume design, production design, have an importance that have been for many years, and continues to be, insultingly underrated.

Morgan Freeman has been Morgan Freeman since. . . well since he began acting. I, personally, don't care. I love the man. I love all the portrayals he makes. I rather see someone like him, whose eyes impart so much. . . so much (sorry, ran out of words) than anybody like, say, Marlon Brando (and this more than borders on heresy (for the record, I love Mr. Brando and miss him terribly, at least his good roles. . .))

Kevin Spacey may be said, arguably, to be similar to Mr. Freeman. He seems to always be Kevin Spacey.

David Mamet once said that there were only tww Holidays in the American calendar, The Super Bowl and the Oscars. He may very well have been right.

Can you think of any Oscar winner for best picture that can be accepted as such by a hefty per cent?

And how the heck does Hitchcock and Scorcese get away with not winning a single Oscar? I'm sure they have their detractors but, still, come on. . .

I thought it was interesting that "Sea Inside," Best Foreign Film, and "MDB" both dealt with euthanasia. In different ways, but the end result was the same.

Still. . . 2004, at least for me, was a crappy year for movies. The other I sat down to try to come up with a list of Top 10 movies and. . . could barely make it, with some forced.

(for what's worth, I thought Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow was the best picture last year. . . perhaps not as bad as saying it was Alexander or Catwoman, but. . .)

Anyway, I've babbled enough. Good night.
