I think it'd make a wicked MMORPG, battle-school style, with expansion packs for Command, Pre-command, and Tactical schools. Everyone starts as a launchy and levels, kind of like Guild Wars or World Of Warcraft (you guys knew THAT was coming up again). The mods would be people like Dap and Dimak, la...

I found out that it's not a tax break they're starting this year that allows you to write off education expenses... I've just never completed a semester with a high enough GPA to qualify before. I'm off academic probation, woo hoo!

Plus if it's as bad as the parts I read and everyone here says, it's like an expansion pack for an awesome game, but the expansion pack was made in Taiwan by carnival geeks in dimly lit rooms.

Are we surprised that Anberlin ripped someone off? I just got The Subtle Knife, actually, after watching The Golden Compass on DVD the other day.

Or, if you're looking to do a little foley work or some voice-over acting, lemme know. Duck just got a video camera recently, so I'm working on a script with him right now. It involves pirates. And lots of play-doh. But more importantly, LOTS of foley work.

I'll hop on that sentence when it comes back around. Has anyone thought of trying to make any Ender amv? Of course not with the unreleased movie yet, durh, but cutting together other movies and such (gattaca, bits of minority report, alien, etc) to make some?

A Heartbreaking Work Of Staggering Genius by David Eggers is great. It's all about the irony, but while trying to specifically avoid actually BEING what is says it is, it does break your heart, and at times does reach the point of staggering genius. It's subtle, it's disarming, it's funny, it's ten...

There's also a huge pond near town that my friends and I used to swim in... it's surrounded by sand pit dunes, so it's kind of in a big bowl, surrounded by woods.

Novinha lashes out at him, calling him a desolation, etc. He answers her calmly, informally, even intimately, telling her (basically) "Thou art fertile soil, and I will plant a garden there."

You can see on the "e" in "es" on my left foot that like previously mentioned, when the scabs come off (be it from work or... you know. Whatever.), the ink fades or will have white spots in it.

My psych classroom is a distance learning lab. It's got flat screen monitors on the walls, cameras mounted with remote controls all over the front, and a window to a control room. It's also acoustically padded and has microphones all over the tables and stuff. It makes me think of the battle school....

True. Speaking of minor fandoms, anyone up for a keeper thread before I start one? Or do people do those anymore? I remember a mailing list I used to be on for Star Wars had a keepers list.
