Title: Random Stuff: The Motion Picture
TKRKS - January 24, 2012 04:37 PM (GMT)
The site we used to get Random Stuff titles died, so I had to make one up.
HARD TO BELIEVE WE'VE BEEN AROUND FOR 5 YEARS.
We outlived Kappa Mikey in fact.
THAT IS SOME LONGEVITY
Kyro - January 24, 2012 05:17 PM (GMT)
MMM, BECAUSE KAPPA MIKEY SURE LASTED FOR A WHILE.
Merica - January 24, 2012 05:49 PM (GMT)
Ahhh, Kappa Mikey was awesome though.
Oh, Mikey. What don't you and your wild antics get yourself into.
But I greatly approve of this title! We need to add some cinematic lighting up in here.
TKRKS - January 24, 2012 06:59 PM (GMT)
Maybe we could CGI all the lights in cheaply.

TKRKS - January 25, 2012 03:26 PM (GMT)
That was the most beautiful things I have ever heard ever.
Merica - January 25, 2012 04:44 PM (GMT)
So beautiful. ; n ;
This movie will make millions.
TKRKS - January 25, 2012 07:16 PM (GMT)
I have decided Liam Neeson will play me in the movie.
We look identical. Probably.
Kyro - January 25, 2012 10:05 PM (GMT)
And I'd be played by Danny Trejo!
TKRKS - January 26, 2012 12:34 AM (GMT)
I can see the resemblance.
Merica - January 26, 2012 02:11 AM (GMT)
I should be played by Morgan Freeman.
Gilda - January 26, 2012 03:43 AM (GMT)
Oh my god I found Emma's MLP self
Kyro - January 26, 2012 05:29 AM (GMT)
Saw that in the MLP subreddit. That sub and the TF2 one are the reasons why I stopped lurking...

TKRKS - January 26, 2012 04:27 PM (GMT)
CURSE YOU PONIES. WHY MUST YOU FOLLOW ME EVERYWHEREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
Kyro - January 26, 2012 05:12 PM (GMT)
I know how hard it is to ignore them when they're spreading "like cancer", but they'll gradually annoy you less if you just let them be. I used to shy away from them too, until I eventually gave the show a chance (AND LOOK AT ME NOW, MA). Can't warm up to that omnipresent Homestuck thing though. ಠ_ಠ
TKRKS - January 26, 2012 06:49 PM (GMT)
Thank goodness for that much at least.
I started reading HS from the beginning, but as it went on, the author went out of his way to
1. Make it harder to read (pesterchum)
2. Make the harder to read parts harder to read (troll speaking)
3. Make the harder to read parts more common (trolls were the main characters for a while)
4. Dont go deeper into the story, just make the story wider and wider
5. Have an arrogent attitude.
6. Cater to the crazy forum fans.
Homestuck fans probably annoy me more than bronies, because although less common, they are much much worse.
Bronies are still annoying too though. Im pretty sure half of them wouldnt like the show if it wasn't a meme.
Gilda - January 26, 2012 08:01 PM (GMT)
I remember watching the first MLP episodes back when they first came out and thinking "WHY DO I LIKE THIS SO MUCH"
...Still hooked. Yeah.
Can't say I dislike Homestuck though, hah. Even though the Pesterlogs are painful to read sometimes.
Merica - January 26, 2012 08:03 PM (GMT)
I can't get into Homestuck. I've tried and tried, but it just doesn't interest me like I want it to.
It makes me sad and lonely because all the guys at BWA love it so much. D:
Gilda - January 26, 2012 08:14 PM (GMT)
Yeah, it's pretty long... Took me like one week or two to get through all those pages.
(last year, mind you. there's a lot more pages now)
Kyro - January 26, 2012 09:17 PM (GMT)
The abundance of speech quirks is horrifying. Also, white people
I haven't personally met any truly obnoxious Homestuck fans, though. I'm just clueless as to what people see in it.
As for being a brony, well...One of the reasons why I initially resisted was because I thought the whole fandom was just some sort of brony bandwagon that would die eventually. I didn't want to watch a little girls' cartoon simply because it had "meme potential". Then one of my IRL friends tried to push it onto me...He constantly
brought it up and pestered me. His attempts to "convert" me, however thankful for them I am now, are the reason why I refuse to force the show onto anyone like some sort of pony missionary. Anyway, I eventually caved when my other friend decided that he'd try it with me.
So the two of us watched a few episodes on a crappy Saturday morning, and...umm...I dunno, something just clicked. The Flash art style, the fleshed-out and lovable characters, etc. I think that having a friend to watch it with made it a lot easier. I might've felt lame if I was watching ponies alone in my basement, but having somebody to bear it with me made it feel almost normal. I don't remember who admitted first that they genuinely enjoyed it...
The community is more important to me than the show itself, though. With the exception of a few oddballs and perverts, it's generally just a really friendly, talented, and inspirational group. That's where the brony pride comes from.
All of that being said, I don't mind that you hate bronies. Just explaining my reasoning.
TKRKS - January 26, 2012 10:42 PM (GMT)
Also, the people on the TV Tropes are the worst.
Now that I think about it, I think too many fandoms are the worst.
Of the top of my head
TV Tropes forum members
People who take TV Tropes too seriously
Community fans (this one particularly annoys me because I really like the show as well)
I think I need to find a good community to even things out.
Merica - January 27, 2012 12:02 AM (GMT)
I'm not too familiar with the actual fandoms... I just kind of watch from afar usually. </3
But I do need friends who watch the same shows I do. It's frustrating. D:
THE KAPPA MIKEY FANDOM WAS PRETTY COOL.
Actually no it got considerably scary sometimes. Mostly KMF people. ...person.
Gilda - January 27, 2012 12:51 AM (GMT)
Haha oh man, I remember that.
I was actually watching the Kappa Mikey opening today. Good times.

I was about to say... :P
Anyways, since my favorite and second favorite GIFS are good and I cant post them with bad stuff, I am posting them here now
BEST GIF EVER
Kyro - January 27, 2012 02:01 AM (GMT)
First doesn't work for me but Cookie Monster...LOL
For me it's a tie between these two:
TKRKS - January 27, 2012 02:23 AM (GMT)
Not work as in doesnt show up or not work as in don't like?
If the first, just search Orson Welles Clapping Gif
Merica - January 27, 2012 03:36 AM (GMT)
All of these are incredible. o u o
Kyro - January 27, 2012 04:14 AM (GMT)
Doesn't work as in not showing up, though I believe I know which one it is.
Board's been pleasantly active today. Mhm. *nod*
TKRKS - January 27, 2012 04:48 AM (GMT)
It sure is nice.
Also GIFs are the best. When I decided to limit how many of the filtered reddit sites I go to, I picked only the GIF and Pokemon site.
Kyro - January 30, 2012 11:34 PM (GMT)
My Daft Pon3 shirt finally arrived today - at least a week after my TF2 shirt even though I ordered them at the same time. Also, it came with some free stuff that wasn't part of the order, including a POSTER and STICKERS.http://i.imgur.com/i2QjY.jpg
Ah, and an enormous steampunk Rainbow Dash bag that almost scrapes the ground when I sling it over my shoulder. Huzzah! Impracticality!http://i.imgur.com/Btnz5.jpg
Now I just need to think of what to do with them.Weenie Status: MAXIMUM POWER
TKRKS - January 31, 2012 12:12 AM (GMT)
That is a good smily that may or may not be relevant.
I got convinced to buy another board game
CURSE YOU TOM VASALhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1GS0D-bhol8...VerCAFMAYvVdwHm
Gilda - January 31, 2012 01:07 AM (GMT)
That Rainbow Dash bag is awesome
TKRKS - February 3, 2012 04:29 AM (GMT)
That is all
Kyro - February 14, 2012 12:37 AM (GMT)
Lost my car key today and had to look all over the school for it, backtracking to everywhere I had been during the day...Eventually gave up and had my mom drop off a spare key. As soon as I got into my car, I opened the glove compartment to get my FM transmitter and BAM, key flies out and right into my lap when I tug the transmitter's cord. Cue Nelson laugh from my friend in the passenger seat.
RRRRRGH WHY WAS IT EVEN IN THERE
TKRKS - February 14, 2012 01:27 AM (GMT)
Maybe your friend is trying to DRIVE YOU INSANE.
You should take him out just to be careful
Gilda - February 19, 2012 07:49 PM (GMT)
doo doo doo taking screenshots of TF2 maps for reference/inspiration purposes
I'll post them all somewhere eventually
TKRKS - February 19, 2012 08:43 PM (GMT)
Now I must know what you are doinggggggggggg
Also, BB is fun as usual.
Gilda - February 19, 2012 09:00 PM (GMT)
Just exploring maps and taking screenshots of stuff! It's quite fun. I make a temporary server for myself so I can do that without being interrupted by players coming in (and I can access maps that you can't find anywhere else anymore, like frosty 2fort).
BlazBlue IS pretty fun, haha. I should get around to playing that again sometime.
TKRKS - February 20, 2012 08:58 PM (GMT)
The newest version which has all teh DLC characters + 1 more just came out so Ive been playing that again.
