"Wet Dream Of The Week" Nico Cruea - Outside of meeting a rather gruesome end in the recent horror flick, "Sinister 2", Nico has been throwing himself into his new acting career! We'll be seeing more of him in the near future, for certain! So good luck, Nico! Stay beautiful! :)
"Brain Buzzer Recharge". Yeah, this weekend, Jimmy and I got together and decided that we just wanted give our tired brains a rest. Hehehe, it's exhausting! Creativity gets to be weird when you push too hard. :P Give us something soothing this week! Something mellow, comforting, laid back! Nothing to put people to SLEEP, but soft and jazzy enough to groove to without having to put too much effort into it. Let's all get some designer tea and a cushy seat on the sofa, dim the lights, and relax for a while. Sighhhhh....I feel better already. Give us ONE, no more than FOUR! Happy hunting! Shhh....I'm chillin' over here. ::Sighhhhh::

It's been a bit of a weird / busy day, today -- Mike84, 12:26:17 10/08/15 Thu
A couple of my brothers and sister, along with my mum came up today, and took me out for a birthday meal (it's not while the 28th, but it was the only time everyone could get together).
So we went to the same restaurant we went to for my thirtieth birthday, last October. I love it there. It's right on the Loch Ness, and it has some beautiful views. It helps having clear skies, which is rather rare for this time of year in Scotland.
And also my sister gave birth to her little girl this morning, (the one who had a planned C-section on Monday, it got postponed until today and was eventually born this morning at 11 am, at a healthy 7.2 lbs.
So everyone's rushing down to Edinburgh now to see the little one.
Anyway, this is this afternoon on the Loch.
And this is the newest edition to the family. Going to see her soon, can't wait. :)
There's just a lot going on -- Juan, 20:01:06 10/07/15 Wed
So Comrade Jake you called it lol. Everywhere in the state of Texas there's really annoying people trying to get a signatures so that Texas can secede. Like wtf right? I mean it's unconstitutional, when the South was rejoining the Union they made a promise to never leave. Im sure that even if they do get the amount of signatures and could sway Texas to take it to Congress, Congress would not approve. Like c'mon Texas get your head out of your ass. Just the thought of Texas as an independent nation makes me physically ill.
While we're on the subject of new legislation, I got an email from the SGA president asking for his help on something. So apparently there's this new bill where students with a license to carry a handgun could bring their guns to school. Are they *bleeping* crazy!???? NOOOOOOO! If it's a "safety issue" then maybe the universities should enforce security. Yea that sounds like a good idea. Personally i carry a knife with me, plus I run track so no one but other track people can outrun me. Anyways, Im going going to contact my debate buddies and we're going to team up with the University to try to reject the notion. Like woooow. Im going to do all that I can y'all, I can argue my way through anything.
Haha speaking of arguing. I got accused of cheating by my calculus professor. You wanna know why? Because I made an 91 on the exam.. Like he doesn't believe that I actually studied. I mean like yo wtf? Are you an idiot? Other people made scores just a few points below me. So now I have to deal with the bureaucracy. I have to appear in front of the council and go through an investigation. Its a load of RUBISH! Do you know how BAD I am at math!? Cal is the subject I worry about the most. I have scholarships that I have to maintain, I'm not playing around.
Speaking of play hehe. Um I failed to mention that the percussion instructors did not let me quit band, so im stuck in it :/ I joined a frat. Yes I am a member of the Pikes. Unfortunately for me I'm like their assistant. It's funny because I'm in charge of events and philanthropy. Im loving it! I didn't know they could be so much fun. There's a lot of other things too, I really am enjoying the college experience. Im actually not as busy as I sound. Meh.
The thing that does keep me busy are my peoples. And that's one thing I really don't like about myself. I can never say no to anybody. I find myself doing ridiculous tasks on a daily basis. The other day I wrote a book report on a book I never read for my friend Madlyn. Im like a pack mule for people carrying their stuff for them. I mean what are friends for right? But there's a point where i start to feel used and taken advantage of. But what are friends for right? Ugh I'm a good person *throws arm up to forehead dramatically*
Today's a good day -- Ace, 19:40:29 10/07/15 Wed

Ready for day 2? I read through the posts from yesterday and I have to say that some of them surprised me. Makes perfect sense though. Our fears are something that can be difficult to be honest about. I'm really glad that you guys stepped forward to offer us a personal glimpse. Thanks! :)
On to day number 2...
(PS - I'll try to also give my own answers if I can. Both of my hands are a little 'damaged' at the moment, so it's hard to type for extended periods of time. But I'm working on it. ::Nods::)
They've been posting new teasers for Marvel's "Jessica Jones" series, soon to appear on Netflix! (Only six weeks or so away til my next binge session!) Just little hints, but I am really interested to see what they do with the show! I don't know much about her, but she showed up in, like, every Marvel comic book that I read, so I recognize the name. She's in X-Men, she's in Avengers, she's in Spiderman, she's in Fantastic Four, but she was never a major character. So this will be really cool! It's a direct spinoff of Daredevil and they will definitely crossover at some point, but she actually has super powers. Similar to that of Superman. She's been abused and victimized, she's bitter, she's an alcoholic, she's a private eye...that is one damaged lady! Might make for a cool ass series though!
Below are the teasers from Netflix. (Can't WAIT for a full trailer!) And an Easter egg hunt with stuff I really didn't catch in that first teaser. And that one long camera shot from the Daredevil series...just because it's badass! :P If they can do with Jessica Jones what they did with Daredevil, I'm IN! :)
Our discography is now live! -- eminem313, 23:15:24 10/06/15 Tue
New Music coming THIS SCHOOL YEAR (Maybe 2015, but FOR SURE 2016) but for now...
Check out our AWESOME back catalogue! Whose page was designed by yours truly! :)
PLEASE guys, BUY the music if you can! We REALLY need the money. We are on a very limited budget from the school, so any extra cash we can rake in will only mean the more money we can play with to make better products for you guys to enjoy! :)
Okokokok!! I waznt gonna say it but i gotta!!! But I GOT TO KISS GABRIEL TODAY!!!! YUPPPIR!!* HAW!!! -- Joey (Ohmyfukingodddd!!!!!), 21:40:27 10/06/15 Tue
John arranged fer us to meet in wrestling equip room..only hadda few min!! BUT WE kissed our brains OUT!!!. OH MY Gawd!!! HE misses ME!! HE cares!! John is gonna find a way to get messages between us!! Yesss!!!! Shit!! I know OK??.Gotta be careful!! I kno rite..Whatever!!. WE kissed!!!. HOLY Shit WE kissed!! Ha!! SORRY jd!! I Hadda TELL!!. Yay!!! Ha!! JOEY
A few weeks ago, I posted a video on the board about a boy that came out to his friends and family, and he played sports for his school...I thought it was a really moving story.
Well, all of those videos are gone now. ::Shrugs::
All except for this ONE, which is like 60 seconds long. (The original was like 8 minutes or something. Maybe even longer.) This doesn't tell anybody anything! It doesn't even MENTION him being gay! WTF? :(
I don't know what happened to the other, full length, videos. Maybe Brayden and his parents were harassed for it or certain sites stopped carrying it because of pressure or whatever. Who knows? But it's a damn shame. It was a really great story that could have helped SO many gay teens who were dealing with the same thing. Where did the full video go? Can any of you guys find it?
I get it. He's young and he's cute and he's blond and he's got the light blue eyes etc...but that video was MORE than that. It was a story about someone who was being bullied and teased, but chose to rise above it. About him avoiding suicide. It was about getting support from someone he idolized and turning his life around. It was about them getting together to create a sports function for other gay teens who felt the same way and dealt with the same struggles. Where did all of THAT go in this story? They turned an inspirational gay teen story to just some kid who was depressed and started playing sports. (Yay, good for him. Sports solves everything, because that's what boys are supposed to do) Why is it that we can find a million 'cat videos' on YouTube, but something like this gets wiped out within a few weeks of it initially getting posted?
We need more stories like his. I just hope they stick around for a bit longer so kids don't feel so alone anymore. The full story could have had a real impact, you know? I'm sad that it got covered up like some sort of embarrassing secret. :(
Obviously, our five questions will run through Saturday now! :P But off we go with another Speak Week!
This month's theme is FEAR! Appropriate for Halloween, right? So feel free to jump into the conversation whenever you like! Even if you've never posted before, you're more than welcome! So come party with us! K?
I'm still here, but I'm typing a LOT slower because I've got some nasty hand cramps at the moment that make it really hard to be as efficient as I'd like to be. I got some Calcium/Magnesium pills this morning though. I'm hoping that they'll help. (That and staying hydrated) But if you've never had a painful cramp in the middle of your palm before...and then tried to TYPE like that, hehehe, you know that's not really something you would consider fun. Or possible. So I have to take a lot of mini breaks, but I'm here! A little rest goes a long for these tap dancing fingers of mine! :P
One of the best episodes of the whole series...but (no spoilers), they did the unthinkable. A great tragedy has been done, and now I'm sad. :P
Ah well, don't worry, "Gotham". Comsie still loves ya! Promise...
Now that I think about it...this show is CRAZY violent! Hehehe! Yikes! There are still rumors of a series about "Krypton", but...ehhh, I don't know. Superman wouldn't have even been BORN yet. And nobody knows anything about Krypton except that it blew up. Who knows? Maybe the writers will surprise us all.
Ok I've been away sort of from here for a while (stuff happened) so.. -- Dom, 07:34:03 10/06/15 Tue
as there seems to be new peeps here...
everyone stand to attention please willies out for inspection and get ready for roll call.... and.. go!
It's TUESDAY! And lately I've been hearing more and more familiar songs being used in adverts/commercials... -- PeteIM (), 00:46:54 10/06/15 Tue
So this week, look through your playlists and find at least one song (but no more than four) that you've heard in a commercial or an advert, either on TV or radio. Post the song as a response to this message so we don't slow the site down too much. If possible, post songs that have the lyrics on the screen.

Edited 1 time.
*Taps microphone three times* Hello? ...Uh... hello, is this thing on?
Imagine Mag's 26th release is coming out before Halloween this month. I can't remember if I said the 29th or 30th, but either way, WE NEED CONTENT :D All we have so far is Cirrus's wonderful book reviews. If possible, we'd like some Halloween themed content.
This week's 3M makes Jake Gyllenhaal disappear, and replaces him with some kinda psycho! :O
Seriously, if you ever had any doubt that the Oscars were rigged, WACH Jake Gylenhaal's performance in this movie and tell me he wasn't ripped off. Can we have our OWN Oscar's online? Jake? Leo DiCaprio? Ben Kingsley? I mean...WTF???
Anyway, "Nightcrawler" is a movie that touches on something that I, personally, never really thought of before! When you're sitting at home, watching the news...those reporters aren't the ones with the pictures and the video tape. The POLICE aren't the first on the scene! So where do those morbid pictures come from? The fires, the shootouts, the car accidents, the murders? SOMEBODY is out there with a camera, shooting that footage...and selling it to the highest bidder! This is the core of "Nightcrawler"!
You've got someone who is very driven, but almost...emotionless, in what he decides to do in this brand new profession. He is about as unstable and unsettling as anyone that you would ever want to me. In a SUBTL way, but...if he sat next to ME on the train, I'd want to get up and move! Hehehe!
Jake Gyllenhaal is absolutely amazing in this movie! And, without giving much away, I can honestly say that every single minute of this movie fascinated me, and kept me looking for what was going to happen next. So check it out! I hope you enjoy! And the next time you're watching that 'footage' that you see on the local news...think about this movie, and contemplate just how much of it is truth, and how much is just sensational enough for the people on the scene to make a few hundred bucks!
After all, I crave knowledge, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week! :P And I hope that nothing about this comes off as offensive, as that really isn't my intention.
A few posts below, I posted a trailer for a documentary called, "Do I Sound Gay?", and I was intrigued by the answers that followed.
I know that the 'straight acting' and 'gay acting' individuals are stereotypes and don't really carry much weight. But I have to admit that I want to know more. I'm really curious! Especially when it comes to the transition from one behavior to another. There are NO judgements being made here! Like I said earlier, feel free to be yourself and be comfortable with that. I just want more information.
We're talking about the difference between being a bit more effeminate, or openly gay, and being (as they say) a bit more 'butch', I guess? I'm not sure how to phrase that.
I tried to approach the issue a little bit with Bobby Jinette back in Book 7 of "Billy Chase", and a tiny bit in the beginning of "Save Or Sacrifice", but I honestly don't think I know enough to really handle that subject in a story just yet. I'm talking about someone who doesn't seem to have any gay traits at all, to suddenly adopting many (if not all) of them at once. I would really like to write about this kind of thing, but only if I understand it better.
Please refer to the example below before you answer. I've got my notebook and I'm ready to learn. So teach me! :) K?
I've been meaning to write a review of this story for a while now. Normally when I write these reviews I try to avoid spoilers as much as possible, but some of my feelings on this story revolve around certain specific plot points. So what I think I'll do is do a general non-spoiler overview in this post, and then do a sub-post with the spoiler content.
"The Tunnel of Doubt" is a very readable 6 chapter story. If anything I think the story might have done with being slightly longer, to better ground some of those plot developments I'm trying to avoid telling you about.
Sixteen year old Trevor Johnson has been sent to a Canadian Catholic boarding school. He finds himself attracted to his cute roommate Liam, but Liam couldn't possibly be gay right? There's some nice banter between Trevor, Liam and their friends.
There are a few scenes that get sexy, but not you know, too sexy, as if narrator Trevor suddenly realised what he was talking about and got all coy half way through.
I enjoyed this story, but with a few plot-centred reservations that stopped me enjoying the story quite as much as I wanted to. (More on those to follow).
Well, I managed to screw up the race yesterday! I missed my 3:05:00 target time by almost 11 minutes and I'm really depressed. Normally I'd go to the gym and work it off, but I'm way too sore this morning! It's really not so bad for the group-home we support though because some of my larger donors are still choosing cough up their full pledges. Sometimes I forget that I'm surrounded by so many wonderful people. I really am! A few of my buddies are pissed because they lost side-bets, and I do feel kind of shitty about that. But I ran the best race I could, so screw it. I'm actually glad it's over now. Thank you all for being so supportive. It really meant a lot! Guess I just had a bad day. -- SolarMaxx, 08:55:36 10/04/15 Sun
So we’re the host nation for the World Cup Rugby and we’re out of it. No excuses for the England team they were sloppy against Wales last week and were sloppy against Australia last night they didn’t deserve to win. It’s the first time in history that an England team didn’t make it at least to the quarter final. Oh well c’est la vie.
The new New Order album Music Complete is fast becoming one of my fav 2015 albums right now, we’ve been playing a lot the past week. I didn’t expect to find it on Youtube so soon and def not to find it’s actually posted by New Order themselves. It’s a bit more dancey than their older stuff but that’s cool with me. :) It’s on a loop.
"Mental Instrumental"!!! Jimmy's giving you guys a bit of a challenge this week! Go to your favorite playlists, and find songs that actually have the name of a musical instrument in the TITLE of the song! Doesn't matter what kind of instrument, what kind of music, or from what era it comes from! As long as the instrument is a part of the title! Cool? Give us at least ONE, no more than FOUR! Happy hunting! (Hehehe, I had to think about this one myself for a while)
(Please put all music video selections in the 'reply' section below and not on the main board! It helps to prevent slow down)
Shacker shout outs! -- eminem313, 22:55:12 10/02/15 Fri
We all feel nice when people compliment us right?
So here is a post that will (hopefully) allow us to do just that without feeling weird LoL. In fact I'm the one who will feel weird for you all by posting this first so you don't have to feel anything but sunshine and rainbows when people say something nice about you :P
Okay here are the rules:
Choose ONE shacker who you want to say something nice about. It can be anyone from Cosmie all the way to someone who's only posted once. As long as they've posted at least sometime in the shack's existence they are free game! >:D
SO MY TURN >:D
My shout out goes to Johnny! Although we've had our minor disagreements in the past, you've always been someone who spoke your mind and is passionate about your positions. You also have stood up for me and others when as Eminem would say "Shit hit the fan" for us, and I am truly grateful for that. You have a unique personality, and someone who I have tremendous respect for. SO KEEP BEING AWESOME JOHNNY! >:D
College is life man -- Juan, 18:51:11 10/02/15 Fri
So fellow college guys I.E. Jakey, Teddy, Em, Ace... etc. How is college for y'all? My Comrad Jake how's CANADA??? Tadpole you have a lot of explaiining to do :P Ace our elder share with us your wisdom haha. Em how's it going being an "adult"?
As for me, there's a lot i havent't told y'all. Im a good person you guys! HAHAHAHA
I saw a trailer for this documentary and wondered about it. I don't think I sound gay at all. Like seriously, I just don't. Nothing wrong with 'sounding' gay as far as lame stereotypes and labels go, but I never really thought about it before.
Although, I do have to confess that I've known some really effeminate sounding guys who have told me, "I came out to my family" and I thought, "Hehehe, no...you didn't." Which is really bad of me, I know.
What do YOU guys think? Do you sound gay? o your friends sound gay? Have you experienced a mistaken judgement because of it? I'm curious...
Usually, every week or two, I have to come in and do board maintenance to hopefully keep things moving smoothly. So, depending on how busy the board is, I try to trim some off of the end. Posts that have been up for a week or more get moved to the first archive, and people can still read them but can also make new posts without too much bogging the board down.
However, Voy gets confused sometimes. Why? Because... That's why.
So it ends up doing something that I did NOT tell it to do, and it starts spreading things out over ten archives for no reason, and it shuffles the posts around out of order (based on the last reply, and not the date of the original post) and things get screwy for a while.
So, I tried to fix things the way I had it before Voy got possessed by the devil. I hope things stay still for now.
In the meanwhile, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Ted! Boy farm time? Hehehe, let me know what ya want! ::Nods::
Umm I'm not sure if it's just me or not, but is anyone else having problems with this site? -- Juan, 16:49:34 10/01/15 Thu
It was fine this morning yunno, like the way it's always been, but no its reverted to this weirdness. The way it keeps coming up is as if it were in html format; it literally just text. It's very.. odd. I thought that this morning it was like fixed but no dice. Well it was, but then it went back to it's basic form. Not even through other mediums of web access has helped. I've tried Internet Explorer, Opera, Firefox, Chrome is my default browser. Not only that but i've tried my phone, my tablet, my laptop, my tv, my ipad... nada. Can we get a reform? Is that even possible? I dunno, just letting y'all know.
I guess not everyone will be interested in this but... -- Fanson, 23:14:46 09/30/15 Wed
Hanson is starting their tour this month and Yahoo will be live streaming their Chicago concert in October 8th, they will be playing some cover songs and also Hanson music (new music also) so tune in if you're interested :) You won't be let down
Hoppy, hoppy birthday, that's why we're here to say, "Hey!" Hoppy, hoppy birthday, may all your dreams come true.
Woah! Hoppy, hoppy birthday from all of us to you.
I hope you have a superfantabulous day. Out of the few months I've known you, you've been the coolest guy Teddy. Seriously dude have fun, live it up. It's your day, just.. be careful. Love ya! (Hugs) (kisses) (spanks) xoxo
WISH ME LUCK -- I really need it this year! -- SolarMaxx, 17:15:58 09/30/15 Wed
I'm running my first marathon since early spring this Saturday. It's a fundraiser for autism and I managed to raise almost $1700 in pledges! One of my nieces is autistic, but until a couple of years ago I had no idea how horrible life is for many severely autistic adults in this country! In some cases their living conditions would literally make you sick! Okay, sorry about the PSA -- I don't usually push my personal causes on others, but for some reason this race is making me a little nervous and I keep waking up while it's still dark thinking about it. I have to finish in under 3 hours and five minutes -- my age-group-qualifying-time for the Boston Marathon, to get the full donation. I guess I'm hoping to draw a little positive energy from as many sources as possible -- maybe even this board. Can't hurt, right?
Because we all know that Mike has nakey photos of Neil Degrasse Tyson above his bed, and MANY empty boxes of tissues beside it! LOL! (Wait...how do I pick what letters to capitalize in his name? Is there a rule for this?)
I wonder if Vincent has the same thing over his bed, but with that 'Dawkins' character! Hehehe! :P
Tough question -- Ace, 21:09:27 09/28/15 Mon
So I live with 3 other guys in my apartment and out of the four of us only me and 1 of my other roommates have ever been in serious relationship, we tried our best to explain to the other two what its like and what it means to be in love but it seems they just do not comprehend what we are saying. That caused me the want to ask you guys what do you think love is? To me when you're swept up in it, its one of the most amazing things about life. In my opinion its not something to be mocked or that can be found in one night stands, I'm excited to hear what you guys have to say about it.
This dork :) -- Juan (sorry for bringing the melancholia), 16:13:38 09/28/15 Mon
It's one of my bestest friends' birthday today. Yes the notorious Collin. Now Collin and I met in math class in 6th grade, I beat up Alex Rojas because he was picking on Collin. Like why Collin? The only person he was ever agressive to was... me lol. Anyways, I was his protection and at the time i didn't have a little brother, so he got the job. We did a lot for each other and I never understood why I was paid more attention to than he was. Like Collin was like super duper cute and I'm me, nonsense. Popularity is a fickle, I never bought into it. That whole clique was full of stupid, spoiled little rich kids that cared about nothing except themselves. Yea I can be judegmental too... I say it like it is, I could care less. Anyways, Collin would have been 18 today. I looooved Collin to death and I miss him so much.
He was like nobody I had ever met before, not even to this day. I know during my narcissistic hiatus he pulled me out of my dumbassary (I'm pretty sure that's not a word but it works) and literally slapped some sense into me. I remember when we were 13, we flew allll the way to New York just so we could see "Wicked" on Broadway. That was all we did, like no joke haha. Then when we came back we'd break out into a duet singing "Defying Gravity" and everyone would tell us to shut up. What I loved about him the most was his appreciation to the arts. We were in theater class together, we can both play musical instruments, we both loved to sing and dance,and we both spoke Spanish and French (frog?). Like I said, like no one I have ever met before. I remember how he got us banned from Belmont Park because he was perving on girls changing in the changing room. Lol then when we got lost on our class trip to Six Flags and our parents had to drive 4 hours to pick us up. Or when I took him and Steven (my best friend in the whole wide world, not to be mistaken with suicidal Steven) to our cabin at Kings Canyon and we got lost in the woods for TWO days. Like if they just would of listened to me, then we wouldn't have gotten lost. I ain't even gonna go there. Just I like to reminisce about the past, 5 years has gone down fast. Heh, as my memory rests, but never forgets what I lost. Wake me up when September ends. (That song makes me cry every time)
Steven sent me all of these that they took years ago and they all just made me laugh and brought up a heap of nostalgia. I ask myself what I asked myself when I was 11. Why Collin?
That's how I'll always remember him, a dork :) Happy Birthday Twinkle Toes :D
And these first TWO episodes (TWO!!!!) have got me more hooked than the whole first season! Jesus! GOD, I love you, Cameron Monaghan!!! I don't want anybody else to play "The Joker"! Ever! He's got it down! He's perfect! I can't see anyone beating that!
Out of ALL the comic book villains of all time, seriously...of ALL TIME...The Joker comes in at number TWO! (Which I feel was a rip off) But this is of all TIME, though! The others in the top five were like Violator from "Spawn", Magneto, and ummmm...I forget the others. Even Lex Luthor was in the 'teens' somewhere! But Cameron nailed it. I have a fanboy moment every second that he spends on screen! And what they're doing with the Riddler is brilliant! So that's TWO orgasms per episode! :P
Now then...if "Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D." and "Heroes Reborn" don't step on each other's toes with the whole 'Civil War' idea...I'll be a happy geek camper three times a week! :)
It's TUESDAY! And some of us like to stay up late while others of us like to get up early... -- PeteIM, 00:12:02 09/29/15 Tue
So today we're going to post some songs that are good for Late Night or for Early Morning. Look through your playlists and see what songs match your mood at the beginning or the end of the day and post at least one, but no more than four. Post your songs as a response to this message so we don't slow the board down too much. If possible, post songs with the lyrics on the screen.
re: not being able to view videos on Voy… -- PeteIM, 12:37:14 09/29/15 Tue
I finally got so pissed by the lack of ability to view videos on Voy that I took a drastic measure – I ‘refreshed’ Windows 10.
CAUTION! If you refresh Windows 10, expect to have any applications that were not part of Windows 10 to be removed! Backup all files before proceding! But the refresh program puts a list of the removed programs on the desktop so you can see what was changed. The file name on my PC was “Removed Files.html”.
Refreshing has two settings: 1. remove all ‘foreign’ programs, but leave all files untouched, and 2. Wipe the drive and reinstall Windows 10. I chose option 1.
I did this two days ago (Sunday in Lombard) and the problem is gone. Now I can reinstall each of the deleted applications, one at a time, so I can find out which app is causing the trouble. Before starting the re-install, I’ll set a break point so if anything goes wrong, I can get back to ground zero. After each app is reinstalled, I’ll wait at least a day, and then set a new break point.
I’ll use a descriptive name for the break point, like “Added Anti-Virus Software”. I’ll let you know how things go.
Apparently, Navy Pier wants to get an even BIGGER ferris wheel here in Chicago! (Isn't it record breaking already?) Anyway, tonight was the last night of the one that already exists out there. So if you guys come to Chicago, you'll have to wait a while until they build a new one. :P
I'm sure it'll be just as grand. And here is your tour guide for the day to walk you through this awesome AWESOME spot in the heart of my fair city! Yes, you should go! You HAVE to go! ::Giggles:: He doesn't get there until about 3 minutes in...but, can I get a soundtrack for this? The music is amazing! Especially @6:10! That's funky! :P
(Wait...isn't the Palmer hotel haunted? I have to look that up, but...yeah...LOTS of places around here are haunted. But that's supposed to be haunted as HELL, supposedly. Hehehe, shaves off the staying price though.)

I had a look at 2am and it had started but I couldn't last until 3am when it was at it's peak here. My bro was outside on the patio watching it all chilling in a recliner.
