Help! / Find me a birthday present!
« on: 07 August, 2012, 12:30:38 PM »
Hi 2000ADers

Oddgirl here! Sorry Oddboy hasn't been around much lately, but the two small things we've spawned are keeping him busy (and he has work to do at work nowadays...who knew?!). It's his 33rd birthday next month and I am all out of ideas. Could any of you guys and gals point me towards something he might like? Hopefully I can work out whether he has it or not.

And shhhhh...it's a secret ;)

Other Reviews / Bob's Twisted Tale this week...
« on: 10 August, 2008, 12:04:02 AM »
Bob's Twisted Tale this week... I just don't get it.

Some bugs go across a river. Some other type of bugs are also there. Some have a thingy on their back. Some eat each other. Thingy meets other thingy and lives happily ever after.

Anyone care to explain?


Off Topic / Shameless eBay pimping.

Hi folks,

Ignore this thread if you're not interested, but I've just stuck a load of music posters on eBay, so if you feel your wall is lacking that certain something...

Events / London Film & Comic Con

Anyone going to the London Film & Comic Con?
I think I'm being dragged along by my FireFly obsessed friend so she can meet 'Mal'.

Anyone else going to be there?

Off Topic / What would you do?
« on: 25 January, 2006, 04:15:08 PM »
1      You fall asleep in the Underground station & miss the last tube. You wake to find the gates have been locked & there is no way out.  To make matters worse (or more interesting) there is a mysterious killer somewhere in the underground system.   What do you do?

2      You are a simple orphaned farm-hand living & working for your aunt & uncle when you intercept a distress call from a foreign princess. You have no previous experience in heroiscism.   What do you do?

3      You are an 80?s teenager and have accidentally caused your parents to split up ? 30 years ago, after travelling backwards through time. Your mother now has got the hots for you and you are in danger of ceasing to exist.   What do you do?

4      You?re a nerdy school kid who has been bitten by a genetically modified super-spider and are now coping with a very unexpected version of puberty.  The girl of your dreams has told you that she loves you, but you know that if you went out with her that it would put her in constant danger, unless you gave up the superheroiscism.   What do you do?  

5      You have been incarcerated in a mental institution because no one else believes you when you say that the world as we know it will end in August 1997.  Meanwhile a robot from the future is trying to assassinate your son.
What do you do?

6      You are a teenager who has been sucked into reruns of your favourite 50?s telly show.  Inside everything is perfect, albeit in black & white, but you cannot leave the town limits.  You only have one chance to return to the real world.   What do you do?

7      You are the mayor of a small island community which relies on tourism & fishing for its economy.  After a few shark attacks the chief of police demands the beaches to be closed.   What do you do?

8      You are on a scientific expedition and believe you have found the remains of a completely new bipedal life form.  One of it?s still living relatives kidnaps your girlfriend.   What do you do?

9      You are a singing young Puerto Rican woman who has fallen in love with a singing American man from your rivals? all-singing-all-dancing gang.  He accidentally kills your brother in a gang-fight.   What do you sing?

10      As part of a government scheme to deal with ?the youth problem?, your class has been selected to take part in a death match. You?ve been given one weapon each of varying usefulness and you are expected to fight until there is only one of you left.   What do you do?

11      Nazis have occupied your country and you are a known nationalist. You have been offered a position of power with the German Navy, but to accept it would go against your principles and you would have to be separated from your new singing ex-nun wife and your seven singing children.   What do you sing?

12      The dead have risen from the graves and are intent on eating the flesh of the living.  You and a group of people made up from a diverse cross-section of society are taking refuge in an old house.  Some have taken to hiding in the cellar.   What do you do?

13      You are a TV weatherman forced to live the same day over and over and over and over again.  That day involves Andie McDowell.  Sorry.
What do you do?

14      After being the only survivor in a nasty train crash, you discover that you have never been ill or injured in your life.  You also realise that there is no limit to the amount of weights you can bench press.  What do you do?

15      You are a na?ve singing teenaged girl who has just started at a new high school, after spending a wonderful summer holiday with a singing boyfriend. Upon reaching the school, you find out that the boy isn?t as sweet as he seemed over the summer, as he has a reputation of cool to uphold.   What do you sing?

16      You have inherited some gold jewellery.  An old man and his friends want to have it sent halfway across the continent to throw it away.  Doing so might just save the world from a tyrannical dictator.   What do you do?

17      You?ve just lost your steel worker job when they closed the plant. You?ve got a son to provide for and your dignity to keep.  One of your ex-colleagues  suggests that there?s money to be made imitating the Chippendales strip routine.
   What do you do?

18      You are an internationally known & critically acclaimed film director who is attempting to adapt a film version of the 1605 book ?Don Quixote? by Miguel de Cervantes.  Your lead actor becomes ill during shooting and has to leave to go to hospital for an operation ? when he returns he will not be fit to ride a horse.  On top of this, the weather turns to storms and the funding is fast running out.
What do you do?

Books & Comics / New Hellblazer author
« on: 20 January, 2006, 03:39:55 PM »
Anyone read the latest Hellblazer (#216 I think) with the new author who isn't Mike Carey?

Seemed pretty good, & a seamless transition between the writers, John's character didn't make any sudden changes.

Other opinions?

Off Topic / Edward Scissorhands @ Sadlers Wells

Shameless pimping alert

Edward Scissorhands has been turned into a ballet & is being shown at Sadlers Wells at the moment.
Great, thought I, I'll go to that then.
Arses, thought I, when the tickets arrived & I discovered I'd somehow managed to book for the afternoon show which I can't go to.

Please help out your fellow stupid boarder,

Books & Comics / The Walking Dead (Book four) is in the shops!
« on: 23 December, 2005, 04:13:10 PM »
As the title says... I know a few folks here are folling this series & might be interested to know the new book is buyable.

Picked it up yesterday, but not read it yet.

Games / Dredd Vs Death game
« on: 12 November, 2005, 08:55:52 PM »
Just playing a bit of the D vs D game this afternoon... the hospital level.  You can stumm gas the citizens you've just rescued into the quaranteen rooms, then arrest them for 10-15 years each. Good way to get a JUDGE DREDD rating.

Off Topic / Mixed up bootlegs, or Self-pimping, retrostyle!
« on: 26 October, 2005, 10:48:41 PM »
Hi folks,

I made a load of mixed up bootleg tracks back in 1997 (on a Windows 3.1).
They've been stored on cassette tape in the meantime, and then recorded back onto computer (XP this time) - and as such the sound quality ain't perfect.

I've only uploaded a few of 'em, feel free to mock and abuse me now.

They don't seem to be very zombie-like to me, but that's science for you.

Off Topic / Design a badge
« on: 02 August, 2005, 06:47:17 PM »
There's a band, Xerox Teens, (who're friends of friends...) who are going to release 1,000 copies of their next single on 7" vinyl.
Each record will come with a different badge, designed by a different artist.

Seeing as there's a lot of artists that frequent this board, I figured I'd give y'all a shout...
Xerox Teens.
