Am I the only person on here who did not immediately realise it was a game reference? I thought "...what? shoot outside...what?" I play no shooter games, I know not that world. My mind tried to link it to real life battles, and failed, first.

I've been obsessed with Philip Glass's Metamorphosis (all 5 movements) The other week I got sucked into 'Descent into the Maelstrom' by Philip Glass. It's groovy. I have been obsessed with far too many songs to list them. Thankfully there are none that currently obsess me, but the most recently rec...

I have to come up with a good marketing-related drinking game... Turn on the TV, watch it. Every time an advertisement attempts to co-opt some value to which it has no right and that has nothing to do with the product the first person that deconstructs it can dole out some fixed number of drinks; b...

1. 'webweb' - I bet we could find a small child who calls it that. 2. 'blag' - lots of people refer to blogs as blags because some blogs are so full of...idiocy? 3. Diagrammatically is a word, but it's ugly. 4. Assonance: repetition of vowel sounds, alliteration: repition of initial consonant sound,...

I've only listened to Absolution, but I love that album. Thought I'd love to see them live, but it wasn't so good as expected because I'm only small and I was about 2m from the front, with far too many people behind me. Was slightly crushed, big distraction from music - of which there was too much t...

I'm not anywhere near as nerdy as anyone else in this thread, apart from possibly the person who finds nerdy girls attractive, because hell, that's not really being all that nerdy yourself - if it was, the world must contain way more nerds than I thought it did, since Willow from Buffy was always so...

I'm proud that I was never into pokemon. The closest I came to that was enjoying the 'Digimon Ranchers' (or something) cartoon once or twice when I accidentally turned on the TV when it happened to be on. If there was a blue wolf and a one legged eye thing and also sometimes a bunny and the opening...
