I used to be Havok. After that I changed to Sir Remington III, although I quickly dropped that once I realized how pretentious it sounded.

Youve got a problem with pretentious names?

Lord Glittersnatch doesn't sound pretentious, it sounds like a vampire dude from the Twilight 'verse that also happens to have a vagina.

I've been Eater of Clowns, EoC, and The Omnipotent Grinner

I don't know, everyone.  This guy has me believing.

If it's chaos magick that brought him here, it seems to me that there is a great melevolent will behind the whole process that seeks to see its practitioners ridiculed and abased.

Well your comparison is retarded since all the works of Shakespeare have been in the public domain for the better part of a century.

Sometimes it helps to break something down to its simplest form, much like your lowly DNA, since this is really what it boils down to anyways. The Fair Use Policy is just vauge jargon that bends more than Doktor Howl's yoga instructor used to confuse monkeys such as yourself.

legally speaking that agreement you signed when you register to the site says different.

The public can see every board except Principia Discussion and a few of the child boards without ever logging in or registering an account. Argument over. Fuck off and die.


Wait, so just anyone can come here and view a piece where it's very clearly written and attributed to its original author.  YOU DON'T FUCKING SAY!

Started A Game of Thrones yesterday.

I loved them all but Feast for Crows.  Storm of Swords is the best one so far IMO.

Waiting for that damn HBO series to come out now.

Same.  According to HBO, it should premiere April 17th

So that has some of the best characterization I've ever read.  The best way I could describe how well fleshed out each role is that I feel like I could gossip about them.

AND I'm really psyched to see that Peter Dinklage is playing Tyrion Lannister.  While I was reading it I was thinking he'd be good for it (forgetting, actually, that they were intending to even make that series), then found out on IMDB he would be.  Sean Bean is also a good choice for Eddard Stark, and the girl they chose for Daenarys is gorgeous (she is not 14, as in the book).

Anyway, I'll be reading the Preacher series while I wait for the my hold on the next book to come into the library.

As if to prove my point, I was talking to my sister earlier and said "So...Gregor Clegash," and she yelled immediately "Oh my god, FUCK Gregor Clegash."

I love posting population figures.  Nobody ever wants to even look at them.   :lulz:

It's true.

Let me try.

HOLY FUCK 200 BABIES PER MINUTE WHAAAAAAT

OMG WHAT SHOULD BE DO?

SHIT SHIT SHIT SHIT

*STARTS STOMPING OUT THE FIRE BABIES*

No but seriously. No actually the above is not at all un-serious. I know the figures. Seven billion plus two hundred a minute. They actually do scare me every time, but apart from that, I really have no fucking idea how to meaningfully act upon that information.

Yeah, it's what I call bad signal.  It's correct information, but it's of no use.

The Boston Museum of Science has one of these clocks, probably outdated now, where it measures deaths on one dial and birth on another.  I can distinctly remember being a kid and watching that clock thinking "...uh, isn't this going to be a problem?"   :lol:

NB isn't exactly centrally located - half hour from Providence and an hour from Boston - and my only furniture is a love seat, but if anyone's hard up for a place to crash I can offer up floor space.  Bring your own floor padding!

I'm inclined to believe along with Suu that Memorial Day reservations will be damned near impossible to make, even this far back.  Graduations are huge, and it's a big kick off for most people's summer activities.

What is NB?


New Bedford, old whaling city, now a rundown shithole.  It does have some legitimately pretty spots, but not worth any kind of drive unless people are already here after being desperate for crash space.

I'm unsure exactly how I feel about this at the moment.  I am going to reflect for a few hours and come back to respond.

Santa Claus doesn't exist, Hoopla, but we're still getting presents:D

For the paranoid types, there is a narcissistic side to believing that you are somehow dangerous or important enough to be spied upon.

It's like when 9/11 happened, the day of before anyone figured out what was actually going on.  A bunch of people in my school were scared that we might be in danger somehow.

Motherfuckers, nobody gives enough of a fuck about New Bedford to attack it in any way at all.  The only danger we're in is from our average, everyday violent crime rate and, well, your stupidity.

SO, I'm sure a few of us have heard about the "Piano Bar" incident.  There's a thread about it in High Weirdness and a few posts about it in Internet Shenanigans.

Basically a grand piano was left on a sand bar in Florida and unexplained for some time.

Later on, a 16 year old kid fessed up and took credit for it, citing that he liked the idea and was also trying to build up his art portfolio.

A few of us, myself included, loved the actual deed to death.  I thought it was a great bit of surrealism; that it's just the kind of thing that will get people to stop and look and really think about for a while.  On top of it, the stunt gained national attention, albeit shortlived.

Then we find out it's some rich kid's ploy to get into art school.  He was going to leave his name out of it, it seems, but someone indie filmmaker tried to claim credit for leaving that and several other pianos at various locations as some kind of publicity for a "controversial" new movie.  So the reactions, it seems, are that the stunt itself loses value because of the person that did it.

I agree that it's a disappointment that it's some prospective art school kid instead of, say, a group of culture jammers.  But is the value of it actually less because of who did it?  Now this filmmaker, who comes across as all kinds of pretentious AND tried to steal someone's credit - would it have been worth even less if it was him instead of a 16 year old being helped out by his dad?

I'm not convinced that the effect is changed because the story is changed.  If the piano was some kind of viral marketing attempt, the fact would remain that it got people's attention in a very real way.

And Able has already pointed out that this was apparently a Muse album cover?

It's a beautiful bit of surrealism and I love it an almost stupid amount.  :)

These magick threads are just as much fun as libertarian, copyright, and drug threads.

However, because they're repeatable, show the same results, and have solid methodology, they're probably the most scientific thing we do here.
