      So today is my fifth anniversary on this site. It's been a fun ride and long may it continue. If I didn't have an ear infection giving me vertigo I might have a bit more to say but for now I'll just say thanks to all of you who've made it a blast.

    • Entering my thirties...

      DoNothing69

      So I reached another age landmark today. I'm 30. I've been here since I was 25 and seen a lot of changes, gained a lot of good friends and had a lot of fun. I should be maturing but fuck it, I'm not getting old gracefully. Thanks to everyone who has made my time here entertaining and here's to many more years of it.

      Now I just have to get over being so old.

    • Everything changes

      So RT have decided to change their site again. Firstly let me say that I don't really care, it's their site and they can do what they want with it. I've always said the internet is the ultimate democracy as it allows everyone the chance to be a dictator. Their site, their rules.

      Now, having said that here's why I think people are upset by this most recent change:

      Firstly it's the scope, it's not small adjustments to the parts of the site that aren't working or aren't used it's a complete overhaul of everything whether it works or not. It's also the fact it's different, change is difficult to adjust to as everyone knows how crazy people get at facebook whenever they change anything and I have no doubt it'll be the same when timeline is forced on everyone.

      Secondly, it's the feeling that it is too much like facebook. Right as facebook is about to change RT is made to look more like it. It looks like RT is copying rather than innovating, which is perhaps apropos of a site based around someone else's intellectual and physical property.

      Finally, and perhaps most importantly, it's the feeling that we are a community of users. The reason people came here is that they enjoyed the machinima and wanted to find out more. They used the forums to get to know the people who made the videos and they met like minded people who they made friends with. All the regular users here stay here because they like the people and like the product, it's why they get frustrated when the site goes down and why they spend in the shop and sponsor (because let's face it, people don't spend $10 every 6 months for the privilege of smileys and an edit button).

      Some of the users here have been here since the beginning and have never been or wanted to be anything more than users because they like being here. They've interacted with the staff, they've seen others become more involved both directly and indirectly with RT. They've always felt like this was a home away from home and that the staff are their friends (even if they've never spoken to them). So when the staff decide to change the site because they want to get something new out of it and they leave the users in the dark it's no surprise that so many people are pissed.

      As I said in the beginning, it's their site, they can do what they want but they also maybe need to look closer at their business model.

      Looks like it's gonna be a fun show and is a must see if you're a fan of Kevin Smith or the Tell em Steve Dave podcast. Anyone gonna be watching?

      Four years ago today I was working two part time jobs, weighed 280 pounds and was pretty bored with my life in general. It was also the day I decided to create an account for this website having watched all the RvB series. Now, I'm in charge of a castle, I weigh 210 (which is ever decreasing) and I'm loving where I am right now.

      I've met some amazing friends here and it's just a shame I've only managed to meet one of them in person, hopefully that will all change soon enough. Thanks for all the great times here. Here's to another four years of me pissing you all off.

      Now I felt sure someone (filmgeek) would have created a thread for this film already but I looked through 10 pages of the movie thread and found nothing.

      Hit Somebody is Kevin Smith's next and last film, based on the Warren Zevon song it follows the career of a no talent hockey player from the small time to the big time.

      Originally planned as two films spanning decades it's now one long ass movie:

      For the last 2 and a half days I've had vertigo and it's not been fun. I had to drive for 3 hours with it yesterday to get home which was frightening. Feeling better today and hoping it's a virus rather than something more serious. Still, it's the least fun thing that has happened to me. Feel absolutely fine, until I have to stand up or sit up.

      I'll try to make the next journal entry more fun.

      It's the day that lots of people have rallied against, with perhaps myself being most against it but it's finally here. The day where everything changes...

      My 29th birthday. That's right it's the last year of my 20s and it's been pretty good so far.

      I realise that it's a very considerable distance away and you may have absolutely no reason to go there. Nonetheless, I'm in London for three days in February, if you want to hang out and have a pint

      It's the price I pay for seeing it for free. But seeing as I hardly get a chance to go to the movies, I figured why not just watch it now. It still was amazing though even if the quality was just alright.

      It gets better. She gets all high and mighty about "OH! SO YOU GET ALL YOUR INFO FROM WIKIPEDIA LOL" because I sent the one link so she retorts with a wiki link to Ben Stein's propaganda film Expelled. Then blocks me. Whaaat a bitch.

      Yeah I think it's the first SL I just flat out don't like in Who. But whatevs. And I like the actress okay.

    • ChipperHalf

      7 years ago

      Okay, that seems to make a little more sense. I still don't like it. ;) One of the reasons I didn't want to watch Who was because I hate time travel stuff, hahah. I know that seems counter productive here but I've liked them going to worlds and stuff, when they start doing all the crazy time here time there time everywhere stuff I end up going ahhhhhhh.

    • ChipperHalf

      Yes but if she had met Ten before shouldn't we have seen that or he mentioned it? Or are they just assuming that we'll assume?

      Srsly. And he "knows" he's right no matter what so never bothers to think about the perspective of the other side. It's really too bad because, as I've mentioned before, if we hung out and played video games or something, I'm pretty sure that we wouldn't have the urge to tear out each other's lungs.
