  1. Heh, no, I'm not dead yet. Just took a break from my all-encompassing World of Warcraft addiction to say hello. Every once in a while, I do drop in for a bit of nostalgia, so hello everyone!

  2. Hey man! Welcome back!!

  3. The Hottie and the Nottie. Worst ever. My daughter rented it because she wanted to enjoy it ironically. I could write a book on how bad it was. It's hard to imagine that a movie could be that bad without tearing a hole in the fabric of space/time and destroying the universe. Dishonorable mentions: House of 1000 Corpses Highlander 2 Battlefield Earth The Underworld (Denis Leary and Joe Mantegna, not the vampire/werewolf thing) Alien vs Predator Godzilla (Matthew Broderick version) The Hebrew Hammer (so bad it's just...really, really bad)
  4. Alien, Aliens >>>>>>>>>>>>> Alien3, Alien Resurrection. The fourth one had occasional moments, though. "Intruder Alert on Level One. All aliens please report to Level One." And the AvP movies were great steaming piles. heh, fixed.
  5. Ah, another aspiring guitar player. As a self-taught bass player, here's the most useful thing: Practice. And practice. And then practice some more. 1-2 hours a day at least. For years. If you want to get good. You can achieve respectability in around 3-4 years if you put the time in, but the single #1 most important factor in your progress is the amount of time and effort you put into getting better. I learned how to play by putting on tapes (yes, tapes) I liked and plunking along with them until I learned the songs or until my hands cramped up completely and I couldn't even hold a chopstick, but that's how it went. And if you're playing rock/metal and that's the direction you want to go, developing your ear is vastly more useful than reading music. I have played with literally hundreds of rock/metal musicians whether in bands, jams, auditions or just messing around and every single time someone pulled out a riff or song to show me, they played it while showing me on the fretboard. Never, ever, not once did any of them ever pull out sheet music. It's not to say reading music or music theory generally isn't good to know, but for rock, you'll rarely if ever need it.
  6. Need I point out that rebel commandos might actually live in the end...
  7. House >>>>>>>>>>>> Pets. What, she couldn't just buy another ugly dog of the same breed? Are they out of them or something? Are the winning lottery numbers buried somewhere in the dog's DNA? Does she think it's like a WoW pet respawn and the cloned dog will recognize her? Dumbass.
  8. Meh. My sport's hockey. Followed by football. Will be following the Olympics more closely in 2010 when they're in my backyard and my rent goes up 5000%.
  9. Heh I actually like the live versions of those songs better than the studio recordings, but that's just me.
  10. ^^^Oooooo, a Charvel! Where's my White Lion tape...?
  11. "Up there alongside Painkiller". Hmm. I've heard a few songs off the new one, not really blown away by any of them. I wouldn't really put Painkiller "up there" as one of their great albums; Sin After Sin, British Steel, Screaming for Vengeance, Defenders of the Faith, and their live in Japan album would all easily pwn Painkiller. *edit* Of course, Painkiller being mediocre in the Priest catalog didn't stop me from going to see the Painkiller tour, of course.
  12. Playing right now in my hometown, and I couldn't go. :crybaby::crybaby:
  13. IBTL. Sorry to be the one to tell you, but advertising other websites/forums is prohibited anywhere on LucasForums. Get ready for the lock.
