Wait. Did I just say "blog about them?" Did I just use the word "blog" as a verb?
Fuck. I did. Okay, so I am now officially a total hosebag.
No one is genuinely impressed when you stroll down Park Avenue on a sunny day, pushing a stroller with your goat-larva-thing that you’ve dressed in a $600 set of “jammies.” Anyone who approaches and coos is lying to your face when they tell you that the immobile shaved ape spawn that sprung from your leaky loins is “so precious.” This twisted, 50’s-style flaunting of offspring needs to stop, people. “Look what I squeezed through my pussy” is not really the best way to start a conversation.
snowking: The BBC also tells me that "Mobiles phones are not usually seen in the West as a way of keeping in touch with God". Well, no shit. No-one wants to see "thou shlt hv no other God b4 me!" on their phone. If God wants to talk to me, He can use the traditional burning bush method. If he needs it on the move, I'll break off a stick. 0G mobile telecommunications, y'all! My latest model burning stick comes complete with an extra big flame so He can send Multimedia Messianic Messages. Honest.
Anyway... Conquer is now sending his disciples out for various errands. Wind and Frost is to find Mud Buddha because Conquer is stoopid and still couldn't crack the magic puzzle box code. To do this, they must find the Fire Monkey. If this is starting to stink of RPG games, welcome to the world of wuxia comics, of which this movie is adapted from. This still doesn't explain the screencap, does it. :Dserabut, from the second part of her Storm Riders recap. Now with more screencaps than ever! :D
For Cloud - to take the Unchallenged Sword, from the Unchallenged Clan in Unchallenged City. Which by the way, boast the best Unchallenged Kuey Teow and Unchallenged Soda, and the tallest Unchallenged Tower in the (Unchallenged) world. Cloud says, sure, I'll take the sword. Conquer tsked, and said, take the sword AND kill the (Unchallenged) guy. Man, this hobby kills so many people.
While buying comics at FP today I signed my credit card chit using the proffered pen. It was a "floating action" pen, an updated version of those 50s and 60s advertising and souvenir tat pens where the rear is liquid filled, and a picture slides over a backdrop as you tilt the pen.
This was a Stingray pen. And it was a very strange pen, one that I found strangely obscene, in a way that only a geek would notice...
Am I alone* in thinking that there is something pornographic in Marina sliding into Troy Tempest's ear?
* along with the chaps on the till in FP who were amused by my discovery
