So I was going to actually try and write something up that would express my thanks of being a part of an awesome community and how much fun it's been playing with you all. (Seriously if it wasn't for you cwazy ircfolk i wouldn't even have a live account)
But then real life got in the way and decided I'd have next to no free time.. and then God of War 3 came out, sooo... ^_^'
Since I'll fail horribly at trying to sum this all up I figured I'd let the soothing sounds of Louis Armstrong express my love for you all;
Things sure have changed over the 3 years I've been lurking her, some for the best in my opinion, others not so much (full page flash ads on muh homepawge?! :P) but it's been a load of fun.
Dtoid is that awesome guy you always invite to the party.
Sure they get too drunk too fast and may even say something lewd about your chick's awesome rack but in the end they're the guy that'll convince the cops to leave you alone, they'll hit on 'that chick' and take one for the team, they always bring the primo topshelf shit and make the best damned waffles and bacon in the morning.
I <3 you Dtoid, even if spooning you gives me butthurt. get it? Also, (big) cocks.
I can't think of anything witty to day here so I'll cut to the chase. When me and the wife went to pick up Fairytale Fights we gots an extra free tshirt, see?;
Since I love you all so very, very much I figured I would spread the love by taking a nice long hot shower and then using said shirt to dry my nuts off with and then offer it up to you lucky dtoid members as an oh so glorious prize.
There will also be a secret MYSTERY PRIZE!! included as well.
The contest, if you can call it that, is simple and instructions are as follows:
By the close of Friday post an image in the comments below of anything and I mean ANYTHING that would make me laugh, cry, vomit, etc.
The ONLY, and I mean ONLY requirement is this; it must be something The Gods of Metal look upon with approval
While they are more than pleased with the heart and soul behind Brutal Legend they are, alas, unsatisfied with it's gameplay and as such demand sacrifice!
So sayeth Krahshthulhu, speaker for the Gods!
So yeah, recap funny+metalish theme=free tshirt AND A MYSTERY PRRRRIIIIIZE! (seriously, totally worth your half assed efforts since it's something you can put in yer xbawcks or pstripplez)
In most germanic languages Friday is named after the goddess Freyja who is not only accredited as being the goddess of love and nookie but is also associated with war, battle and death. So what better way to celebrate Friday than partaking in hedonistic acts like drinking, fighting and fucdkgemaking?!
For those less adventurous you can always crack a open a bottle, play some games and watch a movie that at least glorifying such wonderful pastimes. That's where this blog comes in, I'm hoping to help point you in the right direction when it comes to living vicariously through those badasses on the screen.
To me, in the world of Kun-Fu cinema there's nothing worse than being blue balled by a movie's horrible plot or dragging pace.
For my inaugural KKFF post I figured we'd stick with tradition by heal kicking up a review of a classic that everybody SHOULD have seen already.. :P
If you don't instantly recognize this cover art then you, my friend, are doing yourself an injustice. You are robbing yourself of a myriad of enjoyent!
First released on October 5 1978 Drunken Master, as it was titled in the states, is a great film demonstrating why Jackie Chan really is the clown prince of kung fu. Directed by Woo-ping Yuen and featuring other veterans of the Peking Opera house like Siu Tien Yuen The film follows the misadventures of a young Wong Fei Hung (more to come on this folk hero) and the trouble his mischiefs land him in.
Ultimately Jackie ends up being sent to train with his "uncle" as punishment for his misbehavior and like any other good kung fu movie trouble seems to follow our protagonists wherever they go ensuring that there is rarely more than 5 minutes between fight sequences.
I could go on and on about how great this film is but it's better that you just check it out yourself because that trailer doesn't even begin to do it justice. For less than 10 bucks it's well worth the purchase.
Suggested dinner and/or snacks to accompany the film would include;
pepper steak stir fry from your closest round-eye friendly americanized chinese take out shack, some fried bread and/or spring rolls dipped in kikoman's sweet and sour sauce.
Suggested beverages would be Dr.Pepper or cola of your choice and enough malt liqueur to drown a horse.
Suggested after movie game;
Believe it or not this is actually a pretty fun game when played with friends, especially when you make the loser drink..
Well after my first few rounds in the CoD4 FNF tournament being a bit rough. (Trying to find an empty server for a 1v1 match is hard enough let alone picking a server that gives a fair ping to either player)
Sooo long story short i went ahead and called in a favor or two and shelled out a few bucks (less than what you'd shell out at McD's) to set up a 16slot dedicated server.
It's a public server so no password needed but it's not advertised or linked and it won't be the duration of the contest to keep the traffic down.

Now that the semi legal bs is out of the way, here's the IP;
188.8.131.52:28960 Get fraggin'!
I know there's some complaints about how the rules are set up and how the contest is ran but whether or not you're playing for the fun of it or actively trying to win I suggest you at least post a blog saying thanks to Big Poppa Niero for setting up some kickass prizes.
Edit: there's no real point to this blog now thanks to that fucker BattyAndroit . Stealin' muh ideaz! I keed, I keed. He's put up a real quality entry for this kickass contest.
To be perfectly blunt I'm glad it's going to somebody that had an account BEFORE Collette had posted the contest.
Here's the rest of the post :P
So I woke up a few weeks ago and after brushing the taste of whiskey out of my mouth and changing into whatever clothes I stumbled upon I did what I usually do in the mornings; microwave myself a quick snack, check my email/rss feeds, and then meander my way through what's been goin' on in the land of the rising robot.
I stumbled across the contest that Colette had posted and thought to myself;
Holy crap! lookit that schweet computer, I bet if I put on some crazy shit and glue some brass tacks to my little sister's swimming goggles I could win that! I need to make an account and post up some shit of me FAST!
Actually that's not what I thought, that's just me being an unfunny dick right there. What I DID think was, what would Mr.Destructoid look like with a steampunkish makeover. A few sketches and some pondering later I decided that regardless of who won the only thing keeping me from making something was laziness so with the wife and kiddo away visiting her family I decided to break out the hookers and blow ... I mean the toolbox.
Anyways, this is what I came up with. The pictures are shit because the only camera I had at my disposal was my friend's iPhone. (you should all check out his music btw, it's super awesome)
The overall style I was going for was going for would be if the Rocketeer lived in the 1900s and had a vagina that was ravaged by the unholy mechanizations that is Mr.Destructoid. What would their cursed offspring look like? Would he fight crime and wonder why his dad spent all that alimony cash on sweet fedoras and liqueur instead of putting food on the table?
The detail of the paint doesn't come out at all (the wife took the camera with her up visitng family -_-)
The green you see is actually a combination of gold, two different coppers, and a green color dry brushed on to make it look like tarnished brass.
The jacket is actually a coat put together for my casual Halloween costume.
The idea was a sort of steampunk mad scientist. I blame Dr.Horrible for the inspiration.
The coat is actually quite nice. It has a high, mandarin styled collar and buckles at the cuffs and in the back for cinching. The lining is a maroon colored satin
Well that's that. I tip my hat to BattyAndroit, his entry is top notch but I'd be lying if I wasn't a bit envious, havin' a rugrat limits the amount of time you can use sharp objects and spray paint, haha.
Speaking of which; My Kid is Cute(tm)
He's off to his first job interview.
