    THIS WEEK:

    "Booze From The Audience"!!! This seems like just as good a party weekend as any. And Jimmy is underage, so he's gonna have to live vicariously through the rest of you! (Or find an irresponsible adult to spot him!) This week, Jimmy wants you guys to find songs on your playlist about drinking alcohol! Any kind of alcohol! Any kind of music! From any era of music! Give us at least one, no more than four! Happy hunting! Don't drink kids. It's bad for you. Ahem...

  • Ok, so...surprisingly, Istuck with "Extant" to the end of the first season... -- Comicality, 17:03:58 09/19/14 Fri


    I remember Vincent bringing it up before, and I think you too, Mike. So the season finale was just the other night, and I still have mixed feelings about the show. Not that it was bad, mind you...but I think I found out what my issue with it was.

    The main story has to do with Halle Berry, who was in an accident and lost her husband and child years ago, and she can't have children. Well, this is in the future, and she's an astronaut who is in space all by herself for a year...and comes home pregnant. So there's a big mystery concerning an alien intelligence and her offspring etc. That's the main story. But there's also a second story going on. Her husband on Earth is a geniusinventor who created a robot child with it's own artificial intelligence to be her son, and it is learning and growing and doing things that they never expected him to do.

    he thing about "Extant" is...I actually found the little robot boy story far more interesting. The alien thing got...weird and complicated halfway through the season, but I really liked seeing the robot boy question his purpose and existence and wonder why he was treated differently than your average appliance. THAT story could be a series all on its own. I was totally into that. But, unfortunately, since it wasn't the main story, they kept cutting back to the alien story, and it was frustrating because I wanted to get back to the awesome part.

    I think that's what my conflict with the series was. Because I didn't drop it. I kept coming back, but mostly because I wanted to see how the robot story turned out. If it gets a second season, I hope that becomes the focus.

    Any thoughts? Any fans? Any critics?

    Awww, and hey! It's cutie 'Shannon' from the YouTube "Kid's React" series! Halle Berry's robot son vs. her half alien hybrid son. They should have had a super cute 'adora-battle'! :P

  • Wednesday started out well for me... -- PeteIM, 15:26:50 09/19/14 Fri
    The date was 17 September 2014. I worked around the house sorting things for the upcoming recycling event on Saturday. I've been a packrat most of my life and only recently have I gotten used to recycling as a viable alternative to hording. So far, I have three analog TV sets that are ready for the event, as well as three clock radios that have given up the ghost. I'm still trying to decide about four Windows XP machines - two desktops and two laptops. All I have left to do is remove and destroy the hard drives. At 80 GB to 120 GB, they're hardly worth saving, but they each have some personal information on them, so Sunday or Monday I'll clean them with a sledgehammer.

    Then around 21:30 I took the trash bins to the curb for Thursday's normal collection. When I finished, I noticed that I was seeing stars in my left eye - like when you rub your eyes. I figured I was just sleepy, so I went to bed.

    I woke up the Thursday morning about 08:30 and was surprised to find that the vision in my left eye was almost totally gone… there was a small rectangular sliver of vision still remaining. There was no pain, so I figured I'd just go to my ophthalmologist's office and see what was up. Unfortunately, I called my sister before I did this. She went off the deep end and told me to call 9-1-1 and she'd meet me at the hospital - she lives 15 miles from me. I reluctantly agreed and after hanging up, I called the emergency number and told them what the problem was. Now remember, I wasn't in any pain, so I was quite lucid and ambulatory. The emergency operator told me that the ambulance would be there shortly, so I locked up my house and waited for them on my front porch.

    The paramedics showed in minutes and I explained that I was fine, other than having lost the sight in my left eye. No, there was no pain. No, nothing traumatic had occurred. They took my blood pressure (normal) and pulse (normal), and then we drove to the hospital. Since I had a stroke in 2008, they tested for symptoms. They asked me to smile - neither side of my smile drooped, indicating no stroke occurred. They had me hold my arms out in front of me and close my eyes - neither arm lowered, again indicating that no stroke occurred. The on-call emergency room doctor came in and peered (longingly?) into my left eye. He asked who my ophthalmologist was. I told him and gave him the phone number. He asked who my primary care physician was. Again, I told him; the ER doc said he knew him. I was happy. Finally, the ER doc said I should go to my ophthalmologist's office. They released me about the time that my sister arrived, and she drove me to the eye doctor's office. I bit my tongue and said nothing about how I could have been there an hour sooner if I hadn't called her. *sigh*

    My ophthalmologist wasn't in the office, so his partner in the practice saw me. He confirmed the ER's diagnosis of a Central Retinal Artery Occlusion (an artery in my left eye was blocked and blood was not able to get to my retina, causing the problem). He set up an appointment for a retina specialist, and my sister took me to lunch while we waited for the appointment time. At lunch, I told her that we could have gotten to the ophthalmologist's office sooner if she hadn't insisted on going to the ER. She smacked me in the back of the head (she was sitting on my left side and I didn't see it coming) and we changed the subject.

    At the retina specialist, they checked the pressure in each eye. My right eye was at 16 (apparently 15-17 is normal); the pressure in my left eye was 20, though that was not considered to be high. Go figure.

    Since the artery was blocked, she decided to lower the pressure in my left eye to make it easier for the blockage to break free. That was accomplished by inserting a needle into my eye and draining some of the eyeball juice. I was pleased to find out that I would be administered a topical anesthetic. I didn't feel the needle go in. In fact, since I had no sight in the eye, I didn't even see the needle go in. After reducing the pressure, it was 7. She seemed satisfied, but my sister thought it was too low. I reminded her that she wasn't a doctor. She gave me a dirty look and I was expecting a smack in the back of the head when I least expected it. Once the pressure was reduced, the doctor told me to come back in the morning to let her partner see how things were going (she was in surgery the next morning). My sister dropped me off at my house and said she'd pick me up at 08:50 for the 09:10 appointment. I told her I could get there on my own, but I acquiesced when she attempted to smack me in the back of the head again.

    Friday morning, my sister arrived promptly at 08:50 and we got to the appointment with time to spare. The doctor checked the pressure in my left eye again and it was back up to 15; my sister thought that was a bit low; the doctor ignored her. He told me to get a blood test to check for a rarely occurring disorder. He said that he would call me only if the disorder was there, otherwise, I was done. He also told me to have a sonogram taken of my carotid arteries to see if further measures would be required. I had the blood test performed before I left the building. Then my sister and I went out for breakfast.

    When she dropped me off, I called my primary care doctor and left a message with his nurse. He should get back with my on Monday. Now I'm getting ready for the recycling event.

    How do things stand now? My right eye is fine and my left eye has just a small slit through which I can see. I know this sounds like I'm not overly concerned about losing the majority of the sight in my left eye, but I really haven't been able to see very well with my left eye to begin with. In fact, I move all open windows to the right side of my computer screen so I can more easily read them; it's as though my left eye was not there anyway.

    As for the appearance of my left eye, it still follows the motions of my right eye, so it seems to others to be normal… but if you come up on me from the left side, don't be surprised when I don't notice you standing there.

    Oh yeah… I've been thinking of changing my login name to Deadeye or Cyclops. (o:

  • It's decision day for Scotland -- Johnny, 02:58:17 09/18/14 Thu
    If you go by the polls the outcome is gonna be very tight. Now if Brits were allowed to vote it's pretty clear how Beefeater Bill would lean. :) I've posted this vid a few times before but it's still a classic for me and as I said when I first posted it I wish Bill had been my history teacher. If anyone out there is studying English history you can learn quite a bit among the humour from the four vids of Bill in action. :) I'm posting vid two because it's my favourite. Do the right thing for Scotland Scotland.

  • Misc Music Sharing -- Jake, 22:23:06 09/17/14 Wed
    Heya, how've you all been? Wanna share some songs. First off Emily's Army is still good and they're all cute.



    Secondly I wanna share a musical I found, it's amazing as a History nerd. It's very serious and it gives a voice to the voiceless, it's about those infamous evil men and woman who have attempted to kill a President of the USA. Very interesting, the overall message is that behind the tragedy that is the assassination the personal tragedy is just as bad. Idk it's just interesting. This song is most indicative of the message:



    And here is an amazing monologue from the play, Booth sounds a bit like Kevin Spacy(sp) in House of Cards to me, anyone else?

    http://youtu.be/ZCJD_Hz4dnY

    Seriously if you take nothing else away listen to this monologue it's great.

  • From the Wall Street Journal: Schoolkids Grill Obama on Civil War, M&Ms -- PeteIM, 20:13:56 09/17/14 Wed
    President Barack Obama was put in the hot seat Wednesday by some curious elementary school students on MacDill Air Force Base. They weren’t exactly sure what the president did – or even in what era he was born – but they did have some pointed questions.

    “Did you fight in the Civil War?” one of them asked.

    “No,” Mr. Obama replied. “I was born in 1961.”

    It’s no secret that Mr. Obama’s favorite president is Abraham Lincoln, so perhaps he was flattered.

    Another student asked Mr. Obama about the boxes of presidential M&Ms he was passing around. “Yes, that’s my signature,” he said, with an added exaggeration: “I signed every box.”

    Asked what the president does for a living, a first grader in a classroom next door mugged for the camera and gave a big shrug.

    A little boy raised his hand but forgot what he was going to say when Mr. Obama called on him. “That happens to me all the time,” Mr. Obama said. “I think I have a good point, and then…. The press makes fun of me.”

    The president flashed a grin toward the reporters in the room.

    "That bad eh?" - hell no! I mean how can you go wrong with "Buzzcocks", "Tame Impala" and "Sonic Youth" to name just a few of your music choices:) There are a bunch of bands I haven't heard of that sound like they might be keepers - I like "Howlers" sound. Gotta admit I haven't started "Live Through This" yet but that's more because I tend become a story junkie. I'll start to read and next thing you know it's sick o'clock in the morning, my eyes are stinging and the alarm is about to go off:) So I'm saving that one for a crap weekend.

  • Forty-six characters so far... -- Vincent, 09:11:29 09/16/14 Tue
    Years 1-3 are complete, but I have very few student characters for the top three years so far. Can't wait to get to actual writing.

    Already, my class scheduler has a hard time coming up with a solution, now that so many class combinations have to be taken into account for the various students. (The last run took 10,733 tries.) Makes me glad I won't have to do it myself. Hopefully it will still find anything at all once I'm done with all the student character making!

    Just wanted to post a message here to motivate myself to keep going.

  • ~~~ Monday Movie Matinee ~~~ -- Comicality, 05:10:25 09/15/14 Mon


    This week's 3M takes on one of life's nasty realities...

    "Jet Boy"



    I was writing something last week for next month, and this movie suddenly popped back into my head. I don't know how I forgot about this one, as it really is a great movie. I haven't seen it in years (I've only seen it on VHS), but if you guys have trouble finding it, I'll be posting a link to the whole movie below. (Thank you, YouTube!)

    The story is about Nathan, a young boy with a drug using mother, living on the edge of poverty, who has to hustle and sell his body for money on the street. However, when his mother dies of an overdose and he finds himself with nowhere to go, he finds a way to trick his way into the car of a man that he meets at a nearby diner so he can get out of town. The two don't get along, obviously, but each has something that the other needs...and they're stuck with one another until they can both get where they're going.

    This movie has some parts that are a bit hard to watch. This was teen actor, Branden Nadon's, first role, and he's great in it. You can't help but to feel sorry for the poor kid. But it's not laid on so thick that he comes across as helpless. You spend the whole movie wanting to give the kid a hug. The gritty reality is, there are guys out there who just 'buy and sell' little boys for their own sick pleasure, and it's just...ugh! There are times when you can just see Nathan trying to process the abuse and what he's doing just to have some money in his pocket, and it breaks your heart. It just sucks.

    Anyway, very cool movie. Check it out. Not a whole lot of 'lighthearted' moments in this one, so don't expect them.

    Enjoy

  • It's Sunday Chill Time. -- Johnny, 02:49:16 09/14/14 Sun

    OK not so chill but hey. Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike at Tomorrowland this year. We’ve got Tomorrowland pencilled in for next year hopeful we can make it, Belgium here we come. I sometimes think it strange that dj’s become something that people actually watch but it’s easy to get into. My first real experience of guess you call it bigtime was Tiesto etc. in Ibiza a few years ago.

    We went to a local Snoop Dogg dj gig a few weeks ago he dj’s under the name of DJ Snoopadelic lol. It was weird really because he was doing his thing here in a club with a capacity of about 1000 and a few hours earlier he was playing to 40000+ at a surf weekend festival in Newquay so kudos to Timepiece for getting him to gig there. Oh yeh he obviously lit up a doobie on the stage in a no smoking club lol. Bad bad Snoop. :)

    Play loud and go fullscreen it’a an amazing stage set. Gotta love all the faces looking sort of normal when there’s things happening below the waist haha.

    And I can understand the hate, mostly due to the aged up characters... But if you can get past that, which is insignificant in the grand scheme of things (and probably done more because of labor laws than anything else) It really is a beautiful movie... Just like the book, it is meant to teach you a grand lesson; something we take for granted every day. If you loved the book, give the movie a chance... You might be surprised at how moving it is.

    "Triple Threat"!!! This week is simple (or IS it?)! Jimmy wants you guys to check your music playlists and find music by groups consisting of ONLY three people. Three. No more. No less. No 'three people and a drummer'. No 'two people and a backup dancer'. Three members of the group, and no more. Any genre of music, from any era. No cheating. Don't say 'The Beatles' and figure that's close enough. There is no close enough in mathematics. :P Three. Give us one band/group. no more than four. Happy hunting...

  • Interesting... -- Comicality, 01:39:01 09/12/14 Fri


    I'm always saying that people today are actually 'different' than they were when I was in high school/college. And I'm not that old, so it wasn't all that long ago. But now that I'm watching this video and I think about it, that's when I started noticing the change. Like...early to mid 90's when the internet was becoming just a regular household thing. I didn't think it had actual neurological effects on the human psyche, but I do notice that people do and say things and act in ways that baffle me sometimes. It's like being in the "Invasion of the Body Snatchers".

  • Today is Defenders Day in the U.S. state of Maryland... -- PeteIM, 00:14:52 09/12/14 Fri


    It commemorates the successful defense of the city of Baltimore on September 12, 1814 from an invading British force during the War of 1812, an event which would lead to the writing of "The Star-Spangled Banner" as the national anthem of the United States.

    The Star Spangled Banner was written by Francis Scott Key as a poem describing how after 36 hours of shelling, Fort McHenry refused to surrender. During the bombardment, HMS Erebus provided the "rockets' red glare". HMS Meteor provided at least some of the "bombs bursting in air".

    Originally, Key named it 'Defence of Fort McHenry'. Key gave the poem to his brother-in-law, Judge Joseph H. Nicholson, who saw that the words fit the popular melody "The Anacreontic Song" by English composer John Stafford Smith. The song grew in popularity, but it was 117 years before it became the National Anthem of the United States on March 3, 1931.

    Two especially unusual performances of the song took place in the immediate aftermath of the United States September 11 attacks. On September 12, 2001, Queen Elizabeth II broke with tradition and allowed the Band of the Coldstream Guards to perform the anthem at Buckingham Palace, London, at the ceremonial Changing of the Guard, as a gesture of support for Britain's ally. The following day at a St. Paul's Cathedral memorial service, the Queen joined in the singing of the anthem, an unprecedented occurrence.

    Today is also the 200th anniversary of the Star-Spangled Banner, and a Bicentennial Celebration will be held at Fort McHenry.

    Airport.

    At 08:14 radio contact with American Flight 11 was lost.

    Also at 08:14, United Airlines Flight 175 left Boston’s Logan

    International Airport for Los Angeles International Airport.

    Finally, United Airlines Flight 93 took off from Newark

    International Airport in Newark, NJ, at 08:42 (more than 25 minutes

    late) for San Francisco International Airport.

    At 08:46:40, American 11 crashed into the North Tower of the World

    Trade Center in New York City. All on board, along with an unknown

    number of people in the tower, were killed instantly.

    At 08:51, American 77 transmitted its last routine radio

    communication. The hijacking began between 08:51 and 08:54.

    At 08:52, in Easton, Connecticut, a man named Lee Hanson received a

    phone call from his son Peter, a passenger on United 175. His son

    told him: “I think they’ve taken over the cockpit - An attendant

    has been stabbed - and someone else up front may have been killed.

    The plane is making strange moves. Call United Airlines - Tell them

    it’s Flight 175, Boston to LA.”

    At 09:03:11, United Airlines Flight 175 struck the South Tower of

    the World Trade Center. All on board, along with an unknown number

    of people in the tower, were killed instantly.

    At 09:28 the hijackers attacked United Flight 93.

    At 09:37:46, American Airlines Flight 77 crashed into the Pentagon,

    traveling at approximately 530 miles per hour. All on board, as

    well as many civilian and military personnel in the building, were

    killed.

    At 09:57, the passenger assault began on United Flight 93. Several

    passengers had terminated phone calls with loved ones in order to

    join the revolt. One of the callers ended her message as follows:

    “Everyone’s running up to first class. I’ve got to go. Bye.”

    The hijackers’ objective was to crash the airliner into symbols of

    the American Republic - the Capitol or the White House. They were

    defeated by the alerted and unarmed passengers of United 93.

    Lest we forget…

    Deaths from the 9/11 attacks (excluding hijackers)

    New York City World Trade Center - 2,606

    American 11 - 87

    United 175 - 60

    Arlington, Virginia/Pentagon - 125

    American 77 - 59

    Shanksville, Pennsylvania United 93 - 40

    Total - 2,977

    The terrorists responsible for the tragic events of September 11th,

    2001 were not representing any religion or God. They were

    murderers. Nothing more.

    Note: In the picture above, the North Tower is on the left.

  • It’s The Thirteenth Anniversary of 9/11 -- Johnny, 18:24:49 09/10/14 Wed


    I hope that day doesn’t become just something that happened in the past; it does seem that it’s slipping from some people’s minds. There’s also the fact that there are millions of 12-13 yo boys and girls and younger obviously that weren’t born when it happened. I was only 8 myself but I’ll never forget what I saw on tv. Anyhow this is a clip from the tribute concert that happened 10 days later and it’s my favourite version of America The Beautiful, Willie Nelson’s voice sounded perfect for it at that time. Clint Eastwood seems a bit OTT but it was only 10 days later and emotions were obviously still running high. Also it was a telethon fund raising concert and it’s the kind of thing that gets the money pouring in, maybe just a little of it could have been used to get Clint some decent clothes. Stevie’s there and guess what? He gets his harmonica out again.

    For newer Shackers Lacey who still pops up in the shack now and then was living in Manhattan at the time, he would have been about 8 like me. Since I found out some years ago I always think of him now, it must have been terrifying for an eight year old boy to actually witness it was bad enough watching it on tv. My parents stopped my bro and me from watching it as the facts started to come out.

    I just realised it’s not 9/11 yet in USA but it’s bedtime here so it’s goodnight from him and it's goodnight from me.

  • Just wondering... -- Mike84, 17:25:08 09/10/14 Wed
    If anyone has experience in raising kittens?

    If you saw my post recently, you'll know that my cat had kittens, last Saturday night (30th Aug).

    This past two days the Queen has been roughhousing it with the kittens, they're barely a week old. And so I'm obviously worried for their safety. Despite being rough, she hasn't drawn blood from any of them yet, and I've looked up this behaviour online. She grabs them by their throat and kicks them with her hind legs.

    According to some it's normal and a form of play, or maybe an act of discipline.

    According to others, it's not that, and it's dangerous.

    Queens have been known to EAT their kittens, even at three weeks old! After reading that I panicked, almost to the point of separating them and hand rearing them myself (which is a monumental task, they need feeding every two hours, everything needs sterilizing before each use, constant heating, and they also need be stimulated to pee/poo etc). Another thing I didn't want to do, cause they're so young and being raised away from their mothers so young, is often fatal for the kittens, there's no adequate substitute for their mother's milk.

    Right now, all I can do (at least until they're older) is monitor her behaviour around them. But even I can't be there all the time, so I'll just have to trust her too. The vast majority of the time, she's fantastic with them, protective, and caring.

    I'm trying not to form an emotional attachment to them just yet, but it's difficult, and I already have to some degree, but I've tried to take a step back. Things can go wrong and not everyone makes it.

  • Teenage Girl Moment Hold on... -- Jake, 22:31:45 09/08/14 Mon
    hey so I just wanted to say that I got to talk to a kid I've sorta had a crush on for a while today. We joked around and stuff. I know it's nerdy but I
    felt good about it, now we're sorta kinda friends at the very least. Not saying I have any chance but it's always nice to make new friends.

    I mean yeah don't stand a chance but he's gay, cute, funny. Hooray! You remember last year when I mentioned that kid I wanted to talk to? Well I did, haha I don't blame you for not remembering. But yeah I was all like "I want to get the courage to say Hi sometime." well I didn't because I'm shy and introverted but he's friends with one of my friends and so he came to sit down and yeah. Hit it off decently well in my opinion. I don't have any classes with him so who knows if he'll sit with us tomorrow, that's really the only way. Other than being a weirdo and starting conversation randomly.

    OH another silly thing half way through the day I was like "Fuck I didn't look good today." hehe haven't shaved in a few days and I wore a black shirt so it was all stained. lol anyway just had to share.

  • Sunday Chill Time. -- Johnny, 03:28:33 09/07/14 Sun

    Today I am going with the amazing Kate Bush. This week she has eight albums in the top 40 charts and eleven albums in the top fifty charts which is a record topped only by Elvis and The Beatles. She’s been off the scene for sometime until the recent gigs in London where tickets were selling well over £1000. I’ve been a fan of hers for some years because of my family and still love her songs some of which I posted here in the past she’s just so brilliant.
    This is a 1986 album



    Here’s a brill track, Kate in a duet with Peter Gabriel. It still applies to some people right now.

    http://youtu.be/VjEq-r2agqc

    This is a 2014 BBC documentary on Kate.

    For the writers among us, I was just wondering what story/stories you're working on presently, or have been working on recently. Be it more or less in private (like me—I rarely publish anything online or otherwise) or for an actual readership.

    Of course, all this is mostly an excuse for me to talk about mine, but I'm still interested to hear about yours also! So let us know.

  • A vid that I wanted to share... -- Comicality, 06:38:46 09/05/14 Fri


    There are a bunch of you guys who are starting high school for the first time this year, some who are starting college, and some who are older, but are feeling the need to express yourselves and let people know who you really are. And that's awesome.

    I wanted to share this video of someone who is now going through the motions of coming out of the closet for the first time, and has luckily gotten a lot of support and respect for his honesty. And to all of you teens out there who are reading, there ARE people out there who will support you and stand by you while you do this. Not all of them, but some. And those are the ones that matter.

    It's a difficult thing, wondering if I should tell anxious teens to come out of the closet or tell them to use caution and maybe wait until they can be more independent...just in case things don't go the way they plan...

    But it's boys like this that give us hope. That build faith. And for those of you who can realte...I hope this video brings you guys some comfort. K? Enjoy...

    I was thinking that I should probably 'smooth' this vid out a bit more, but it was made to be short and to the point. So I left it alone and posted it to the YouTube channel tonight anyway. Besides, I'm in an underachieving state of mind. :P

    This is but ONE of the next four Comsie video teasers coming your way soon.

    So...yeah...

    Next weekend. Stop by. Wesley seriously challenges his brethren for the first time in the "Savage Moon" series. So check it out.

    And if you haven't read "Savage Moon" yet....now's your chance. (The Kindle versions are better though. Just sayin'. :P)

    I want to take a quick second to apologize to you guys for my sudden vanishing act. I don't want you guys to worry about me or the future of this site. Normally, I have my good days and my bad. Every life has peaks and valleys, after all. But I've been in a really dark place lately, and I hope you guys understand that I just can't be 'me' right now. I'm just trying to navigate my way out of the storm right now, and I'm sort of left to do this alone this time around.

    I haven't written anything in over week. Hardly a word. I have some stuff ready to post, a few new videos that I did for fun, and some ebooks coming soon. But my head and my heart just aren't in sync right now. And I feel like a total hypocrite and a fraud writing about anything happy or romantic at all.

    It won't last. I just need time. K? Give me a few days, and I'll be back. Posting new stories and hearing from you guys can only make me feel better. :)

    You'd think that a few jokes and smiley faces would be easy to 'fake' online. But it isn't. I'm just trying to learn to love 'me' again. And then it'll spill over and I can share with the rest of you. K?

    Thanks for being there for me. And I'm sorry if I gave you guys any stress. I'm not giving up. I'll be holding on for as long as I can...

    And this will be the first day of back to school in forever that I'm not going back to school :o But that doesn't mean that today's completely uneventful.

    My dad went back to school today. He has to work.

    My sister's having a baby at 11:30 this morning (scheduled Caesarian section)

    And! My once-true-love, Bertie, is having a baby today, too! :o His girlfriend's finally decided to pop, but she's been in labour for 14 hours already xD *Sigh* And to think, that could have been me :/

    But this means that there's a really good chance that Bertie and my sister will both have their children today, bringing two little girls into the world, just in time for school! :P

    And also, I was very unimpressed with that new Godzilla movie.

    They've all already got homes to go to when the time comes, so that's another thing taken care of.

    While I like the Arctic Monkeys new style I think as most people that sice they moved to LA they became a bit showbizzy, it changed them like it changes everybody. I'm glad they've stopped touring the AM album it was starting to become something similar to a Las Vegas Revue type show. I know nobody stays the same, they move on and experiment but they're def not the same as they were 8 years ago.

    I guess you can call this album a demo.

  • This is the opposite to the 'Kids React' series, -- Mike84, 12:21:29 08/29/14 Fri
    'The Elders React'. They react to various things, Google Glass, videos, shows, etc.

    This time it's The Rift. Their reactions are priceless.

    Kudos to the appearance of Chucky, btw, near the end there. That would have creeped me out too.

    I love the fact that one of the guys on this hasn't even remotely lost his 'inner-child' like personality. (if that's the right word). He seems to be a right laugh to be around.
