      Adam Pisani AKA LB Country, formerly my cameraman for "Someday Night Grifball" (ahh they grow up so fast) has now risen to the position of grand high poobah and Commissioner of the Grifball Universe.

      Congratulations man. I know you will do a great job. I suspect a real renaissance in the Grifball world to be forthcoming. Adam will bring a calm and thoughtfullness to the community that should really allow people to relax a bit and enjoy the game.

      I wish you all the luck and lot's of friendly helping hands to carry the load man.

      Daddy is very proud.

      ;)

      We have a guest comic up at Questionable Content

      Wow he get's a lot of traffic. We had to hire on 3 new servers and split our images up over all 4 to get things running smoothly. Something like 25 thousand people have viewed Remedy in the last 24 hours.

      Crazy.

      But I'm feeling surprisingly optimistic today, so let's concentrate on the good stuff. Essentially, I got to spend the day with true princes of the internet (and princesses in the case of Griffon and Millie). Unbelievably kind, patient and friendly folks, who allowed me into their work day to interrupt, get in the way and generally make a nuisance of myself (something I seriously doubt I would have tolerated at my last job). They are just solid gold people in every respect and every moment I spent with them was a quantifiable chunk of awesome.

      Thanks RT. Once again, you have made my day.

    • New Comic; Now with Added Grifball

      in Forums > New Comic; Now with Added Grifball | Follow this topic

      quikthnkr

      Hey Griffers... I mean Ballers.... Grifballers,

      As some of you know, I've pretty much moved on from Halo and I do't spend nearly enough time here anymore, but I am still doing creative stuff. I've been working with an artist and some web people on a webcomic I created called Remedy. We launched a site called Remedial Comics just over a month ago and so far it has been a lot of fun.

      So what has that got to do with Grifball? There is a comic forum and this ain't it.

      Well, as a little nod to my one claim to e-fame I wrote a short 3 part story arc involving two of my characters playing some Halo. Specifically, Grifball. The arc started last Friday and will end on Wednesday. I love all my comics but today's is my favorite as I just love what Jason (the artist) did with those ubiquitous "Blue Elites" you tend to see everywhere in Grifball lately (at least that was the trend the last time I checked out a matchmaking weekend).

      So take a look, there is a comment section, I'd love to hear what you think, and stop back Wednesday for the climax. If you like what you see check out our other comic, Sentimental Horde which is more for the D&D/WoW set. This is pretty much a one time thing as Remedy doesn't have anything specifically to do with gaming so don't be surprised when the main storyline reasserts itself on Friday.

      Thanks for a lot of great memories and kind words over the last few months.

      Well, remedialcomics.com is supposed to launch tomorrow. I don't know if we're going to make it. The forums are more or less ready (hopefully int ime we'll be able to adjust the CSS so that the forums look more like the site but the state it's in now is as close as I could make it with my truly crappy grasp of CSS) but the rest of the site is a Frankensteinian (totally a word) mess. No one is to blame, time is just the enemy of all things. I think we may actually make the launch in that the comics will be up and the forums will be functional and so on; but it won't be what we all hoped for when we started down this road. We'll get there eventually, we'll add in more functionality and activate all the hidden little things that we wanted to launch with. At this point I'll consider that a victory.

      2008, easily the worst year of my life by a pretty wide margin. And I've said that before so I'm starting to feel like someone is taking notes and saying "Oh really? Well what do you think of THIS?" every time I say it. Either way I'm glad it's over. I don't have a whole lot of hope for 2009 but honestly, at this point, any change is an opportunity for hope. And hope springs eternal. That's the nature of hope. Until you're dead anyway. Then I imagine all accounts are settled.

      Here's hoping that you have a happy 2009. But more importantly here's hoping I have a happy 2009. I'm wishing myself a happy new year because I am getting tired of the suck.

      I am so far behind on journals and web comics. I promise, draw one frame with a hot dog or a character named "Frank" and it'll get in my images eventually.

      P.S. Don't go back to school. Words can not describe how much I hate going back to school. But I'll try:
      Despise. Hate. Really hate. Hate with a white-hot intensity of 10,000 suns.

      I kind of want to find some poor deceased orphan and beat the shit out of his brain with like a lead pipe shaped like a penis with everyone in the entire world watching, and the entire time that I'm beating this scared little kid and like taking dumps on him and like rubbing his face in the dumps. The entire world is going to be watching, and the hate that all of them will be feeling for me while I'm beating the shit out of this little kid and making fun of him and rubbing his face and...“she†is probably better. Better if it's a girl than a boy because that amps up the hate. Like so much more, all of the hate that the entire world because there’s going to be cameras everywhere this can be broadcast on every single television ever. And all of these people are going to be watching me and hating me. And you take all of that hate from everybody watching me beat this little girl and rub her face in excrement and call her names and channel all of the hate everybody is feeling for me, and that’s how much I hate school

      No, no journal. Like you said, unfair assumption.

      It's the Wiki effect. Saw the locked thread, saw your profile/journal, and the rest, as they say, is history.

    • Drums888

      10 years ago

      Fair enough, and really there are only two bits of that to which I'd like to respond.

      First off, you are correct that no where in the terms of service does it say the first post should explain itself. However, for most people, that would be assumed. It's basic advertising: you want to bring in an audience, you need to "catch" them. Give them a reason to want to go. Thus, the first post of any thread is supposed to give a reason for the thread's existence. Any thread that is started as a link with no other form of explanation is going to get shot down nine times out of ten, and not just by that particular mod, but any who is doing their job. Could he have handled it differently? Certainly. But that doesn't make the way he did handle it wrong.

      Secondly, I'm not coming to anyone's rescue, guy. RvB friendship does not equal universally sticking up for one another. Hell, you should see some of the arguments Erok and I have. I am merely acting as a voice of logic in illogical times.

      Not to badly. Slow of course since we're between seasons and Phoenix and MooCow have done a smash up job of keeping things well organized. I've offered to help them however I can.

      Menze and I have been trying to keep the Explosion alive though I don't know we are as good at is as you were.

      SNGB is still kicking around though we've had issues with finding someone to be a good camera person. I think HaloHero finally has a good rig so hopefully this season will have more episodes of that.

      I think that bungling up is where you and I caught some static. Ah well, in the long run it all worked out, I hope things in your life have settled down a bit.

      Things have gone really well though. I've got a group of people around me to help out with the league when it gets too crazy. For the fall season I may actually bring in someone to act as a "rookie" commissioner who would oversee the rookie half of the league whereas I'd look over the legacy and all general areas.

      Should be a good time. How have you been keeping yourself busy?

    • jack FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold I Like Lego

      10 years ago

      I appreciate the kind words. The majority of that post was actually written by two of my moderators in the Grifball forums, MooCow and PhoenixRage. Those two are mad-men when it comes to getting stuff done for Grifball, a real asset to have.

      The season went pretty well, we had a few scuffles where it turned out I had suddenly become the worst commissioner ever, but I found if I just let people cool down over time they'd eventually be fine.

      Good to see you pop in every now-and-again. Hope things are going well in your life.

      Thanks man, it is quite a large amount of work...overwhelming at times, but things are going pretty well. I've been leaning a lot on a few people in a council I have and they'd shouldered a lot of grunt work for me.

    • ThtOneRocker

      11 years ago

      i know you're not team captain. and I'm not saying you're other players are bad. i was just trying to prove a point. if Joepro and Flowers couldn't play tommorow, and Bacardi and Cola wanted to play then, i find it really hard to believe you guys would. So give these teams a break, i'd like for the season to be done too, it's getting on my nerves how long it's taking. but my captain and my teams dominant ball runner are both gone till late sunday, and we won't rush in to get the game done early, We'll wait till our 2 players are back. But Sunday is not a big deal. I think we can agree that Russia (being the time thats dragging their feet) is generally good guys, and if they're gonna make the season delayed for a week, i'd do that for them.

      in closing,

      *No, it's not all about winning. but i'm not going to throw this season away playing without our 2 best players, as im sure Cannonball wouldn't.

      *I Understand the stress you're going through, and i respect that. but forcing teams to play under conditions they don't agree with isn't the answer either.

      maybe ending the season next thursday is the way to go. I think everyone could use a break anyway. and about news for the next season, if teams can't wait a week to find out the situation, those teams really shouldn't be in the league.

      Actually two weeks ago >.<

      To skip excuses for the time delay, I don't think I'm the right person for it. I listened to a couple of the shows and I didn't get into them. It'd be hypocritical of me to be co-running the program if I didn't honestly want the position, i think the show would end up taking a hit if I lacked passion/enthusiasm for doing the show every week. I'm friends with menz, so if he ever needs to ask me for help in arranging things I have no qualms in contacting people, but as for taking over a seat in Grifball Explosion I won't be able to.
