Unwashed Village / So whats entertaining you today?
« on: April 28, 2011, 12:43:55 AM »
What is fun in your lives?

Im currently playing Dawn of War 2. My brother gifted it to me on steam so as we could play it LANishly. Its kinda fun. Certainly not like most RTSs I know.

Im reading A Short History of Nearly Everything by Bill Bryson. Its good, like a light refresher of Brief History of Time

Im viewing the televisual programme Six Feet Under. Yeah, its oldish, but I missed out when it came through on telly, so now Im DVDing it.

Oh, and Suckerpunch was a cheerful way to turn my brai off for a couple o hours.

Unwashed Village / And lo, there came a terrible storm
« on: April 26, 2011, 06:59:31 PM »
And lo, there came a terrible storm, a rage from the desert not seen for years on end.

And Bluecross looked out across the land, now heaving with energies not of this world, and remarked... "Oh. One of them"

And there with him was Hoopy Frood, who did enquire of him "One of what?"

And Bluecross did reply with much ambivilence "Oh, you know, one of those thingies... storm thingie, but without the... thingie."

And upon seeing the look of Hoopy Frood's face, BC did become discouraged and asked "Where's Turjan? He always has an explination for these things."

And lo, from out of the swirling sands there came a fierce glow, like a supercharged firefly as seen by someone on psychadellic drugs, and that glow did resolve to be Tink.

And tink did shout over the wailing storm "The word is temporal. Its a temporal storm."

And then did she continue with a threatening menace unusual for a creature of such discreet size, "Now if one of you bastards could give me a hand?"

And there the villagers now gathered did see that she held the frayed end of a cord known as bungee.

And so with great might, and no small amount of fairy magic, the village hauled on the bungee cord, and there was a distictive *brrrrft, zzpit* and then a slightly less renowned *pop*.

And the storm did end as quickly as it began, leaving in its wake the wasteland desert as it stood before, though now marred by an exhausted Tink, a bungee cord, and at the end of said cord... an odd creature

And so it was that the villager Ban was returned to the village.

And without much delay to work out that he had infact just jumped a couple of years into what until recently was his furute, Ban did brandish a stick of such pointyness that it gleamed, and a tangerene of such oddness that it did not much resemble a tangerene at all.

And so did Ban welcom those villagers who were new to him, as well as a couple who got in the way.

Unwashed Village / Clive Owen gave me 6 dollars

He's here in Adelaide at the moment, working with Scott Hicks.

I delivered thai food to him. He gave me a 6 dollar tip. I thanked him. He closed the door. I realised who he was. I disbelieved it. It was confirmed by the hotel staff... My girlfriend almost murdered me for not getting an autograph.

I didnt have enough to do with him to form an opinion, but in case you'd like to know, the hotel staff were saying he's a prick.

While I found the experience interesting enough to talk about, it has also made me realise how underwhelmed I am by fame. My friends were more excited by their vicarious owen encounter than I was about my actual one.

If you are a obsessive and need deatils: He ate tom yum goong, and green curry chicken, and he was wearing an adidas tracksuit.

Yarr! What be da.... *ahem*

So, whats the latest on the downloading of things?

I get home from work at midnight, and i like to have an hour wind-down and dinner-eating before sleep... problem being theres never anything worth watching on telly, so Ive been using dvds, but im about to run out  :mean:

I think I have a disc somewhere with limewire on it, but i wont bother diggin it out if theres something better out there.

Also, if you have any tips on good places/mean of finding TV/Movie downloads then that'd be good too.

Unwashed Village / Interactive Ban!

Hi. I've been away quite a while.

I was gonna ask who remembers me, but I figure the ones i want to probably do, and asking sounds ickily like a plea for ego reinforcement.

Then I thought about writing a storyish return to the village, never having really gotten over the good ol' roleplaying days.
...I figured that'd take too long to read/write.

Im aware of my tendency to include soporific, verbose, superfluous descriptions and long winded paragraphs of doom... moreso anyway ;)

So, in the spirit of indecisiveness and infantile dependance, Im askin you to decide for me. How to proceed?

PS: I guess this message is an indicator of what may happen if you choose option 4... or probably 2, for that matter. :blank:

Unwashed Village / In the desert he wakes.
« on: December 11, 2007, 05:01:59 AM »
He is fatigued still, despite sleeping for so long. Or perhaps because he has been sleeping too much. Not dreaming enough.
Muscles are slow to react to his will to move. They have not moved in so long. Bones creak in their joints as flesh remembers how to push and pull. But flesh is not all that has changed. The eyes reflect the time spent away from home. The mind remembers the journeys taken.

The familiar stranger finds the will and energy to stand. Robe hanging loose from his shoulders, he stretches as he pulls back his cowl to lift his face to the morning sun. So with sweat already beading on his forehead, and a long unmarked path ahead, General Banango begins his next journey. In a place he is remembered as 'Ban', he makes his first dusty step in the direction of the Bastard Bar.
