mike_smith reads a Harry Potter book for the first time:

'I removed the dust-jacket and noticed right away that the back cover features an ethereal skull with a snake coming out of its mouth. Yeah, I guess if I was the pope I'd probably be speaking up about this too. While checking the page count, I noticed the garish color scheme of The Book itself: purple and hunter green. I think the last book was mango and chartreuse, but seeing this just reminds me of the Penguin's submarine from the 1966 Batman movie, where the Joker has a bookshelf labeled "JOKES", next to the Riddler's bookshelf labeled "RIDDLES". Of course, those books were props, so they sort of had a reason to look like this. This is a REAL BOOK. It's probably not laced with deadly smile toxin, but the fact that the author's initials are "JKR" doesn't exactly put me at ease. I mean, if comic books were real, this is exactly the kind of stunt the Clown Prince of Crime would pull. So I guess this is technically my first Harry Potter plotbunny. Well, at least it's about Batman.'

_tsar_  In an entry with one of those "check-the-box-if-you-would-do-this-for-me-I'm-bored" things, he translates a response by echase39 :



"...You want me to get you drunk, go karaoke clubbing, feed you assorted
peanut packets for dinner, throw a DVD at your face, drive you to the
middle of the desert where I'll cry for a few hours for no reason. When
I sober up... I drop you off at home.




Wow that made no danged sense. Oh well quel dommage..."



oh how I do love my friends XD

From kid_sportswear, about a question on whether stuff like NIN, Nightwish, and j-rock were allowed to be posted in a goth music sharing community:

I think industrial rock and so-called 'gothic' metal are bastard forms of music. J-rock is basically just AC/DC in a dress.

in which xoverau has trouble with the "waking up" part of the day:

As ways to wake up go, trying to pry your own labret from your face in the belief that it's a June bug is not one I'd recommend.

A meta-meta from my own post. Go, guys!

what_the_jack said over here:
That's kind of meaningful in itself, isn't it? A Dark Mark goes up and first people are thinking, "Yo, that's weird, what the hell is wrong with people?" Then progressively worse things start to happen and the Dark Mark is always there, watching over like a stool-loosening spectre of Satan, and people come to fear it. And muffins.

I suppose you could toss up anything in the sky and if you do it often enough, people'll get afraid.

"Shit, it's a goat eating a pumpkin carved like Pac-Man! We're all fucked now!"


I'm in a silent computer hall. Thanks a lot, Ichijouji-san.

On making rural areas "child friendly"

bites_the_sun posted this article, written by a journalist who apparently thinks the great British outdoors could be made more accessible for tourists and their kids.

And weshouldplaygod agrees:

She should come to Wisconsin. Not only can you bring your kids into bars here (no, really, people do it) but you can run through any field you like so long as you can outrun the angry farmer with his shotgun.

So, um . . . how fast can you run? ::g,d,rlh::

In a f-loclked post by kadewire (QWP), accio_draco has something to say about his choice of vehicles...


That type of car is awesome coz they appear so inconspicuous and unassuming. A cop will notice flashy insane cars with the 9' spoilers and lasers and whatnot before they notice you, so you can drive around with hookers and blow and be swerving all over the road coz your attack dogs are spilling moonshine bathtub gin all over the stolen African diamonds, all the while listening to music so loud that the car actually levitates on certain bass notes, and they won't glance at you twice.

Hypothetically speaking, that is. I mean, we haven't done anything that crazy since, what.. Thursday? Ah, good times.

In this post, antieuclid talks about a friend of hers confusing two similar words. (Quoted with permission.)

"She asked about another related word pair: exercise and exorcise. She wanted to know what the difference was. For the entire rest of the editing session I couldn't get the image of Richard Simmons expelling demons to the oldies out of my head."
