Praystation was funny
Remeber Andrew if you are going to talk about "Communtiy" then talk about it. And if you are not going to stick around for the other speakers then you probably won't realise how shit you really were. If I was Jade I would have snapped your fat neck.
Why these people (read:design wankers) feel that when they are asked to talk that it means you can just crap on about yourself the whole time. The other talkers were thoughtful enough to cover the topic they were asked to speak on. Andrew could have been talking about any topic and it would have sounded the same. I just hope other people (ie people with some respect) will tell him that he was shit also. Please do otherwise he'll never learn.

They had the "highest decorated soldier" from the US army on 60 Minutes tonight. He served in Korea and Nam. He talked about the the US's "War on Terrorism"
Now to me terrorism encompasses many groups. Yet this former soldier insisted on adding that the terrorist should be killed with "12x the force at which they use. There mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, kids, cousins (he added a few more i forgot), should all be killed and then they should all be wrapped in pork so they can't go to the holy land"
Mmmm, why would the IRA worry about being wrapped in pork. Oh yeah thats right the IRA haven't done anything to the US and thus won't be targetted by this "War on Terrorism". Let's hope this war on terrorism is actually that a war on all forms of terrorism world wide and not just in the US's best interests.
I really hope the KKK fall under the wide blanket that is the term "Terrorism"

I have finnaly unpacked the majority of boxes in the new apartment. It seems now I need a bookshelf as I have run out of space to put stuff.
Note: If you buy crappy cheap furniture and stack heavy books on it, then chances are that the wood is cheap also and will buckle.
On a side note: I have listened to both the new Bjork and New order CD and I'm not impressed. Every song on Bjorks CD sounds the same and New Orders (they were before my time) new CD has lyrics that wouldn't rival a junior high peotry comp for substance.

Seems that some people feel that games are "uesless" and "in the end will amount to nothing"
I personally find making games more rewarding than splash screens. If someone can't see the art in a nice game, even the reworking of a classic game, then I can't help them.
You look at a piece of design and say cool. Then you will want something new. A game, as long as it's fun, will get you coming back again and again.
netbabyworld is the best online games pertal I have seen. Great games, great design, fun and a good sense of community. The bowling game takes the cake.

The more you collect things the more you hate them. A used to buy Manga (anime) videos all the time now I wish I never did. I have like 40 sitting at my mums 's place doing nothing.
I collected MAD magazines and now have this huge pile that I lug around. And will never read another.
I collect too much crap.

OJ Simpson was as guilty as they come. Yet after months of trail was found not guilty.

We have had a major telco go bust owing millions, a huge insurance company go bust owing even more.
Now it looks as if 1 of our 2 major airlines has gone down too, after months of trouble. Taking down with them an airline catering company and a travel company. And leaving the major advertising agencies angry after they spent millions in recent pitches.
It's not just the .coms that are getting their ass kicked finacially.

I hope you all picked up your Daily Telegraph American Flag poster.
I grabbed 10 and have them in every room of my place. I also will be getting my car bonnet decaled.
What are the Daily Telegraph (Australian newspaper) thinking??
Wouldn't it be nice to find out that Iraq contracted Bin Laden to do these terrible things. The the US can kill to birds with one sanction. Um yeah Iraq, Bin Landen and David Koresh. That would make the US govt very happy.

I still feel bad for the US but some of the blame goes the the US government.
Think of all the innocent people dying around the world and that America sells the arms that kill them for profit??
Don't hate me but I'd like to see people thinking instead of reacting.

Yes some of the names were really bad.
IGN Toys has enough content to suit any Transformers fan. I can't help but feel that were are seriously missing out on some cool cartoons by living in Australia.
It seems Stargate SG1 is
Stargate is still very far behind the immortal Walker Texas Ranger with 203 episodes under it's belt. And with episode titles like One Riot, One Ranger and Mr. Justice it's no wonder it went on so long.
Is there a 10th season for Chuck ?? Here's a great review of Walker Texas Ranger which any NON-Walker fan should read. It may be crap but it's the good kind of crap.
Excert from article: "On NASH BRIDGES, for example, the body count is close to as high as WALKER's. The cops on both shows kill people every week and don't really seem to care. But on NASH, there aren't routine trips to churches and attempts to get people from all racial backgrounds to get along, there's just a lot of Nash trying to get it on."
If Chuck Norris went up against McGuyver is a bout of fist-a-cuffs who would win?? (Note: Chuck has rumbled with Bruce Lee, McGuyver is really old)
Would Dark Angel accept the offer of a sex sandwhich between the two??

While it wont be released
While it wont be released in Australia for a little while you can buy Akira (Special Edition) on Amazon. Though its region one. Out of all the anime this one would be the best as they have redubbed the entire cast of voices (and retranslated) and cleaned up the animation.
