I never use smilies
Your desk drawer, earlier:0
You forgot the smilie!
Come on now, you know I'm taking the piss, eh?
While we're on the subject you forgot yours, too0
Try Ugly Duckling too…
Tried that, and all it threw back was this.
They must be working on uploading their stuff, or something?0
Or whatever they're called. You know, that "jump, jump.. I said a wiggly wiggly wiggly wiggly wiggly, mac, daddy!". Or Something.
Kriss Kross is gonna make you jump!
Bang on. You're a fucking legend. Cheers.0
For reasons known only to myself I decided to download a load of crap hip hop last night. Turns out it was an excellent decision. Here's what I've ended up with:
Will Smith: Miami + Summertime
MC Hammer: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles + Hammertime
Vanilla Ice: Ice, Ice, Baby + Play that funky music
House of Pain: Jump Around
So, can anyone recommend me some more crap hip hop please? Needs to have decent comedy value.
I loved it. It properly freaked me out.
Not perfect by any means, but certainly a very welcome Hollywood product. I hope it makes a shitload of money so we see more of its ilk.0
Pretty good episode. Some funny moments, quite interesting, not as explosive as previous episodes but that's to be expected of an opener.
Stick with it, it's brilliant.
I lost interest a couple of years ago, but this season has got me right back into it. I rented seasons three and four the other week after getting hooked again by season five.
Nothing but net so far this season. I'd be very surprised if they canned it next year, personally. The quality is as high as ever. Loads of more in-depth character stuff.0
Make a crossover film instead.
Knight Rider Vs Airwolf Vs Street Hawk!
Manimal would kick all of their arses using his cunning and stealth.0
Living in a Police State is not the answer to our problems.
FFS, if we put everyone in prison, there wouldn't be any crime...
It's no more unreasonable than them wiretapping regular phones though, surely?0
I think this is where the accusations come in of it being a recruitment piece for the church. After all, if you wanna know why Jesus was so villified you can always read the book.
There's a book?0
Why did no-one mention this earlier? It would have negated me buying the ps2 version for more cash.
You got the US PS2 version, yeah? Is it any good? I've got WE6 and I love it - should I get this one too?
Sorry to drag your thread [slightly] off topic, too.0
Yes, I got rid of it as, at one point this afternoon, there were two threads on this forum with people slagging me off - the old one got bumped by one of the lovely people who have sent me abusive PMs today, and I thought I'd prefer if all the criticism was contained to one nice to follow thread.
That was a little rash, I fear. Only serves to make you look like you've got something to hide.I DO stand by what that article says - my asserting my lack of control over the written content of it was in no way an attempt for me to wash my hands of it, I was just trying to cut down the comments directed at me that assumed I did, which was admittedly a pointless move.
I've only seen what's at the end of that link, but the copy I read appeared to be incredibly poorly researched, sensationalist shite. If it was my piece I'd be ashamed of it and I'd have asked for it to be pulled. I notice you've not expanded on what other research you did, but asking questions in a thread on a forum is about as unscientific as you can get. It's the online equivalent of asking some blokes down the pub what they think and publishing that as the results of 'your investigation'. Sub News of the World stuff.
People on here are angry because the piece presented an entirely ill informed, unbalanced point of view. Light on facts and heavy on paedos out hysteria, it's not the kind of stuff I'd expect to read in an industry journal.
Your editor has questions to answer, also. How he/she could allow you to make those sort of claims without verifying your sources and means of data collection is beyond me. It makes both yourself and the magazine look incredibly shoddy. The kind of thing Private Eye thrives on taking the piss out of, in fact.
If you can't cover a subject properly, you shouldn't cover it. If you're not prepared to invest the necessary time into properly researching your subject matter, you shouldn't cover it. In short I think you made an error of judgement in the way you approached this and have ended up making both yourself and your magazine look very amateurish indeed.
Finally, I can only assume (and hope) you're relatively new to the industry. The first rule of journalism: your byline, your piece. It doesn't matter exactly what you did on it, it's your piece. If you don't want to be associated with it, you don't allow them to use your name.
An extraordinarily weak way of trying to excuse yourself, if you don't mind me saying.0
They prevent ACTIVE chips. But they don't block chipped Xboxes with the chip switched off. And I don't believe they intend to.
Would they be able to do that? Doesn't the circuit just bypass it when the chip is switched off?
Regardless, if you go online with your chip switched on, you get banned.0
I don't think they have ANY intention of blocking chipped Xboxes from Live.
They already do, don't they?0
Thread here: http://www.rllmukforum.com/index.php?showtopic=34810
Why has that original thread been deleted?
Shit piece by the way. Way to present one side of the story in a knickers in a twist kind of way.0
I look at the cube, and I don't see an exclusive racing game, football game, guns game of any note. It's this that hurts it most.
You missed F Zero and Metroid Prime, did you?0
Seriously, it was one of the worst things I have ever read. Possibly even the worst. Thank God the film is nothing like the book.
Get off that fence, you'll do yourself an injury.0
Will this one have Denise Richards' fabulous bosom in it?0
Blimey, I won. Next game tomorrow - somehow I don't think I'll be as lucky then, unless you send your schoolboy team out again0
You'll find that 18-22 is more common.
Even less on HBO. 12/13 as a rule.0
This forum has no taste.
Tell me about it.0
Radiohead are fucking shit. One good album and a load of fucking home counties public school boys banging on about how fucking miserable they are since. If I ever met Thom Yorke I'd punch the whinging grotbag right in the face. Give the fucker something real to complain about.
Fake Plastic Trees was nice enough though.
Radiohead: used to be nice enough, now they're just shit.0
The Housemartins had a great video once.
Little plasticine men, as I recall.0
I didn't realise until a couple of weeks ago that it's based on a real dog show: The Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, in fact. The second oldest sporting event in the US, fact fans.
Caught a bit of the real thing on the telly a few weeks ago, and it made me appreciate the movie all the more. There was this one woman who'd bought her pooch a hundred thousand dollar diamond choker. No shit. Anyhow, here's this year's winner (Best In Show, in fact):
Awww. Anyhow, the movie is brilliant, brilliant stuff. Parker Posey steals the show imo. Loved it.0
