hello :) I wonder if I qualify as a real geek? I'm not one of the people who plays with their mobile phone ring tones for hours and hours and claims to be a geek because of that. However, I do make crazy animations that no one seems to understand. See what you think...

I have two short animated flash films available to watch on line, listed under 'Richard Beeminster - Flash MX'

http://www.fluffylikerazors.co.uk/

It's very basically a surreal and humourous detective series :D

Cheers

Dev

Subject:AGC: Another Gaming Comic
Security:Public
Mood: rolled a natural '1'

Here's the homepage of my weekly comic, AGC: Another Gaming Comic. Despite my EXTREMELY dubious "art" quality, I'm told it has a lot of laughs for anybody who is, or used to be a pen-and-paper roleplaying gamer, or even anyone with a sufficient gaming background (MMOs, maybe even CCGs) to follow the so-called action.

My archives (although they are primitive non-template based link archives) have over 250 strips, starting from so long ago that the art was EVEN WORSE and the dialogue tended to be a lot more brief.
I also post humorous written D&D excerpts every second week, drawn from the notes I take in my group's weekly RPG sessions.



COMMENTS POLL For anyone who reads a bunch of the comics, and a few of the Real-life D&D Excerpts, post your vote for which group of gamers is more out-of-control: Nuclear Dan and the other fictional gamers from the comic, or Balcoth and the other players (identified only by character names to protect the innocent) who drive GM nuts every week?

Subject:help with engineering techy stuff
Security:Public

Okay bear with me. I'm going to sound really really clueless because I am.

This is for a school project. I dont know if this is completely offtopic but I'm posting here because I figured maybe someone can help me.

I need help with the list of materials and maybe basic description on how to assemble the product.

what is our product?
"The Forget-Me-Not is an electronic voice recording instrument that can be placed by the front door of a house. It is a reminder that prevents people from forgetting essential tasks or items for the day, as they are leaving their homes. This device will consist of a touch lcd screen. Each family member will have a file with their messages. Additional features include: play, stop, pause, next/ fast-forward, previous/ rewind, and delete buttons. Any member in a household can leave a voice message for another member or for him/her self by simply pressing a designated button and recording a message... "

Basically a more techy post-it notes/recording machine.

So I was wondering if anyone can tell me the parts needed to assmeble a touch screen, audio/mic (to record the message), software and have this product. We don't actually need to make this. We just need to figure out how we're assembling it in theory.

Hopefully this looong, rambling post made sense. If anyone can help, im me or respond here.

Aim: I Exist InTheory

thanks in advance :)

Subject:Anti Star-Wars Movement
Security:Public

Hello, I'm Howard Tuttleman. I'm from Detroit and I'm looking for like-minded people to boycott the Star-Wars movies. If I've got you, go to my web-site for more info http://www.howardtuttleman.com
For the rest of you, please just read on. This will make sense in the end and I'm sure you will agree.
You are probably ready to jump down my throat, so just calm down. I am pretty mad right now too. You see, when I was younger I never happened to catch The Star Wars like so many of you did. Sure, I was aware of it quite a bit, and had heard OF it a lot. As a kid there were plenty of times when bullys would punish me whith wiffle-bats that they pretended were light-sabers, and I would always get drafted to play a Speeder-biker or an Ewok when everyone else got to be main-characters. Obviously these things left a bad taste in my mouth about the Star Wars. I started getting my parents to buy me the action-figures and vehicles, and that brought plenty of kids over to my house, and people THOUGHT I had seen it because I had quite a collection.

So when I finally saw some of the novels at the library, I gave-in and picked up the first in the series. It completely captivated me and made me realize exactly what was going on, and I didn't even HAVE to see the movie. I moved on to the next 2 books shortly after, and now reading them has become a yearly tradition for me. I was enthralled by the Socio-Political struggles and the in-depth character building so much in fact that I began to realize something. That something truly this special would be significantly weakened by condensing them into 3 ridiculously short Hollywood-style movies. The concept of these movies is just laughable to me that they would even TRY something like this. I therefore established "The Star Wars Movie Boycott Movement".

You see, when I read the novels I have very vivid pictures of what certain space-ships, monsters or planets look like, and the best part is that I can imagine whatever actors I want playing the main-characters. I obviously imagine myself as Luke because I feel that I really capture the character well (especially in the 3rd book). My best picks for the other characters is how I visualize Han-Solo as being Patrick Swayze. He has that dashing charisma that the character MUST have. I imagine Darth-Vader's voice as this guy Lance I know who is a real bully-type just like the character. Another one I have is harder to explain but I will try. I chose my dog Morris to be Chewbacca, but now he is 8 feet tall and can stand on 2 legs. If an element of the story is too hard to imagine, that is the ONLY time I will accept an out-side influence and refer to my action-figures.

Do you see what I'm doing here? I am able to personalize the story, whereas you can only imagine it how the movie tells you it is. I can now enjoy the story far more, and on so many more levels than you can. In conclusion, I know that quite a few of you have seen these movies, so I guess it's too late for you to imagine what is actually possible. The people I am trying to get through to are the innocents that whose minds are blank at the moment like mine is lucky to still be. The answer is NO. Buy the books instead, and save yourself a ton of money in the proccess, and imagine it how YOU want to. Not greedy Hollywood movie-makers.

This ole geek needs to sell some of her geeky stuff so she can go mingle with other ole geeks at Otakon.

Even though it pains me to do it... I'm selling one of my more prized possesions to raise money. I hope it finds a good home with a truly devoted fan such as I. Just click the picture and follow the link to the auction for more details.




Questions about the item, I will respond to both comments and emails (chachamaru @ gmail.com)

May the force be with you.

Thought you guys might be interested in this since you play instruments.
I hope it's okay that I'm promoting a community here. If not, I'll delete this. I was just hoping some of you geeks are musical geeks, liek band, or Chorus geeks. Like, I'm kinda a chorus geek, or at least some people say I am so ahaha.
thanks.
Caitlin

Do you wish you had perfect pitch? DO you know someone who does? Do you want to know more about it? Do you ever question what it's like for people who have perfect pitch, people who can pull notes out of thin air? Well, if any of these things apply to you, or you are just feeling like joining, hop on over to

and see what the fun's all about!
Hope to see you there!

i recall my last quiz met with some approval and support around here, so i decided to bring y'all my new one :) probably not as interesting as the last, but some of you may find it cool.


I'd agree with the Boston Globe







"Even a doubter has to admit that on any terms 'Episode III -- Revenge of the Sith' is the real deal, an often awkward but nonetheless terrifically compelling high-stakes human drama."



"But I'll go on record as saying that it is, without question, the most emotionally powerful of the six."



"Some may ascribe the improvement to the uncredited assistance of playwright Tom Stoppard, who helped Lucas out with the script."



"With this film he makes amends, and in the process brings not only the biggest film series of all storming to an end but gives closure to a transformative mass-culture experience."



"George Lucas may still not understand the mysterious wiring of the human soul, but he knows the angry, idealistic dissatisfaction with life that drives us to make up legends in the first place."

What Star Wars Episode III review would you agree with?


as always, please post the results in your journal so the quiz can spread around :)

Mood: excited

Yep, I'm new here and I just wanted to say hello. So, hmm...well, as you may have guessed I'm a geek. Mostly about Star Wars (don't worry, I liked them before the new ones came out), Family guy, the simpsons, the muppets, broadway musicals, eddie izzard, fantasy literature, classical literature, classical music, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, the magnificent painter Henri Rousseau, and all things French. There's probably more, but that's all I can think of off the top of my head. Yes, well. I think that's all for now. I love you all!

I thought y'all might get a kick out of this little 2-page comic I did about my lifelong obsession with lists, ratings, and projections, and how my reliance on these stats caused much internal confusion...
