Treknobabble....
I get what you are saying, but enjoy the treknobabble! I have more than once lost beverages through the nose when Geordi tries to explains something. Reminded me of this awesome song by Voltaire:


Doctor Bashir: "Of all the stories you told me, which were true and which weren't?"
Elim Garak: "My dear Doctor, they're all true"
Doctor Bashir: "Even the lies?"
Elim Garak: "Especially the lies"

Re: Comic Books
On a related note, I have you to thank for turning me onto the excellent and much missed Cectic comic strips. Great stuff.

Yeah what's up with that? No notice or anything just the same strip left up (it's on my "sunday" list of comix). Did the robot get him?

Try this one:

Enjoy.

Re: Comic Books
It is a shame about Cectic. Rudi got new job I think and just didn't have the time to produce a regular comic any more. More at http://cectic.com/index.shtml Just scroll down a bit.

Calamities of Nature is great. I bet this one will appeal to you...

Re: Guilty Pleasures
Oh my god! If I were your father I would disown you.

You think that's bad, read my list of music that I'm ashamed of enjoying:

1) Coldplay - I enjoy countless songs of theirs.
2) Chris Isaac's "Wicked games".
3) Sting's remake of "Fields of Gold".

I also enjoy playing guitar hero...a lot.

Hi, Straggler.

I really like Bon Jovi. I can even sing the lyrics from the debut album. I always sing with the radio. Except when I'm around my parents: the theme to "Bed of Roses" is just not uplifting.

I also like Def Leppard, REO Speedwagon, Guns'N'Roses, Journey... okay, so Journey isn't that embarrassing. I particularly like power ballads, which is apparently quite weird these days (being of a quasi-autistic personality myself, I have almost no skill at judging these things myself, so I often make mistakes).

As for TV/movies... I love B-movies and stupid TV shows. I honestly like making fun of TV shows as I watch them. Fortunately, my wife is very patient with it.

Oh, and I can moonwalk.

Re: Guilty Pleasures - music
I am known by friends and relatives as someone who loves and is immersed in classic American hardcore punk - Black Flag, the Freeze, Crucifux, Dead Kennedys, MDC, etc. I often wax nostalgic about how sad it was when punk died in 1985 etc.

But now and even back in the day I would listen to (and like a lot) of 70's and 80's AM stars such as Neil Diamond, Billy Joel, Partridge Family, and other such bands (not cross-comparing those, just naming a few). Music that I was quite ashamed of liking and certainly denied thrice before the cock crowed back in, say, 1983. Now enough time has passed that such music has become classic (no longer "commercialized pop crap").

Oh, yes.

From 17 to 21 she lived with her then boyfriend in an ambulance with the stinkiest dog there ever was.

Then she emigrated to Canada (take that Nosy Ned!).

Re: Comic Books
Hmm, yes, Looking for Group springs to mind, I espcially find the warlock hilarious, and think he's really the strength of the series.

Check them out at: http://www.lfgcomic.com/ (updates on mondays and thursdays)

Also, it seems you are all hiding alot from your "environment" I don't hide any of my guilty pleasures, and some of my frineds laugh at me for them (Yet still went to the new Star Trek Movie with me, so yeah, they're actually just as bad.) But I can't say I hide them. Nerds For Teh Win!11!

{ABE} Also to Rahvin: So, I gather you like my avatar then

Edited by Huntard, : {ABE} bit


I hunt for the truth

I am the one Orgasmatron, the outstretched grasping hand
My image is of agony, my servants rape the land
Obsequious and arrogant, clandestine and vain
Two thousand years of misery, of torture in my name
Hypocrisy made paramount, paranoia the law
My name is called religion, sadistic, sacred whore.
-Lyrics by Lemmy Kilmister of Motorhead

Re: Comic Books
Hi Huntard,

Check them out at: http://www.lfgcomic.com/ (updates on mondays and thursdays)

And I was wondering what to do on a rainy saturday ...

See what you think of

http://sorcery101.net/d/20050512.html
and
http://www.gunnerkrigg.com/archive_page.php?comicID=1

It's interesting to see a strip grow, and the art changes. A friend of mine contributes to

http://www.soulgeek.com/comics/zona/2005/08/01/page-01/

My other not so secret pleasure is sudoku (thanks Rrhain)

http://www.websudoku.com/
http://www.websudoku.com/

You can set your level, and see how you do compared to others.

I also use them to gauge the effect of chemotherapy on my cognitive abilities (logic, attention span and concentration), and can see marked differences. It's a condition called "chemobrain" in the literature, and effects range from person to person, from temporary to permanent. It is somewhat disturbing to find how unaware one can be of the differences without such benchmarks. Kind of like seeing how the other half of the human race lives, and just trust that the effects are not cumulative or with some permanent loss.

So I'll take my "guilty pleasures" and enjoy them for all they are worth.

Enjoy.

Re: The Cure, anyone?
My sister did. She loved the dark eye shadow and the freaky 'Spiderman' video.
Good song, scary video.

She wanted to be a grave digger, too.

Crazy bitch.

I think I'm in love.

Actually I was never a fan of Boy George. Nor did he particularly excite me. It was just this particular dancer

It was a looong time ago.

I also like Def Leppard, REO Speedwagon.....

........I particularly like power ballads

If you were my kid you could at this point consider yourself disowned.

Oh, and I can moonwalk.

How incredibly naff whilst at the same time being unbelievably cool. You have both my respect and derision in equal measure.
