General / Plants vs. Zombies

Did anyone play this game back then?

I recently found my version for the DS and I've been hooked on it ever since. I remember borrowing and stealing my sister's iPod and playing it on there years ago. It's so much easier than I remember. Still lots of fun, very quirky and addicting.

One thing I overlooked was the soundtrack. It's got to be one of the most iconic and memorable in video game history. It manages to be bouncy and creepy and charismatic all at once, this earworm-inducing combination of chiptune, classical, and jazz.

General / Democrats' faces during the State of the Union Address
« on: January 31, 2018, 05:17 PM »

Corey Booker's face is going to freeze that way if he keeps making it

Chuck Schumer looks like Vito Corleone and Commander Snoke had a splode spawn

Nancy Pelosi looks like her programming froze

Jim Clyburn is trying to channel Samuel L. Jackson

Tim Kaine clearly stole the cookies from the cookie jar

And Bernie Sanders just looks like he's having a stroke.

General / The perfect man doesn't exi-

I've been in countless political debates everywhere from school to home to Sploder, and I've had my fair share of debates that have turned nasty, from both sides of the aisle. Politics is a tricky matter because even if you are debating a single issue, your beliefs and conclusions and values about those issues are deeply rooted into who you are as a person, your upbringing, your background, cultural values, etc. Which is why people get fired up and/or resort to cheap, dirty tricks to convince themselves that they're right more often when debating politics than anything else (besides maybe religion).

I've seen displays of passion, fire, and abhorrence from people debating (and displayed it myself on occasion), whether they be friends, family, or complete strangers. And yet only very rarely have I ever seen or felt any long-term consequences from a debate - not talking to that person again, a complete rewiring of your personal beliefs, etc.

Whenever I get out of a debate, no matter the outcome, I always feel a bit quiet and shaken up, like I just want to lock myself in a room for a few minutes and mellow out. I question myself, whether or not I was wrong, and whether or not the other person is convinced, offended, hurt, or even affected at all. I second-guess, I worry, I stew about in my mind. Sometimes I feel bad for the other person, other times I just wish that person would drop dead.

But all these feelings are temporary, and my relationship with that person usually normalizes (at least within myself) within a day. Life goes back to normal and we interact as if nothing happened at all.


General / What's your preferred go-to outfit?
« on: December 26, 2017, 02:48 PM »
The outfit you especially prefer because it's simple, it makes you look good, and can be worn in almost any situation.

For me, it's a leather jacket, button-down long-sleeve shirt, jeans, 'Murica socks, and black Sperrys.

General / Famous people youíve seen/met?

Iíve met Milo Yiannopoulos and Peter Schweizer (author); Iíve seen Hans Zimmer in concert.

General / The One That Got Away - NPC'S FIRST FEATURE-LENGTH FILM!!!
« on: November 29, 2017, 10:30 PM »
Behold, it is here - I've been hyping this up in the Barracks so it wouldn't get lost in the gulag of General. (No offense)

But yes. For the past six months, I, Nick Carlson, also known as NPC, have been working on a completely independent feature-length movie.

Titled The One That Got Away, it is a fifty-seven minute comedy/drama/horror about a brilliant fisherman who struggles with depression and insanity after losing the catch of a lifetime.

I manned every facet of production - directing, writing, acting, editing, and even music composition - which is why it's taken so abysmally long to put out there. Pretty much everything you see here was me.

The film is no technical marvel. Several pitfalls, mainly pertaining to audio, exist, that I simply did not have the time or resources to rectify. That being said, I hope you all can enjoy the movie for the story and content and look beyond the failings.

As I said before, the movie is 57 minutes long. I strongly suggest dedicating an hour of your day to watching it. I intend all my viewers to get the full cinematic experience.

Anyway, here it is: Nick Carlson's THE ONE THAT GOT AWAY.

General / Justice League

Messy, unfocused, shoddy effects, poor villain. Few good jokes, Ezra Miller is the obvious highlight. Otherwise, not worth your time. 4/10

Rpfg's, Groups, Forum Games, and Contests / Increasingly Verbose
« on: November 16, 2017, 09:26 AM »

I'm going to post a common phrase or quote, and it is your mission to post it again, but, as the title suggests, increasingly verbose. The trick is not to go too far overboard with each post; there should be an observable, gradual progression of complexity and convolution.

After I let the chain run on for some time, I will thank the last post and start over with a new phrase/quote.

General / Robots have more rights than women in the Middle East
« on: October 31, 2017, 09:15 AM »

Not only was the robot granted full citizenship by the Saudi government, it also was able to go out in public not accompanied by a man and wasnít required to cover its head or body.

It took decades for women to be allowed to legally drive in that country. Wonder what else Sophia will be able to do?

General / I think I ate my parents
« on: October 17, 2017, 09:58 PM »
Ever since 6th grade I was told that I needed to keep kosher, and I never seemed to have a problem until around seventh grade, where I started eating pork. Now it's eighth grade and my current diet is
Chicken parmesean
Non-examined cauliflower
My parents

Whenever I eat anything resembling parents, I get punished, and it's really starting to stress me out because I'm starting to realize that I can't really do much better than this, so this is going to continue for a while. I'll let you know by the way that I have eating disabilities, and while that's no excuse for eating my parents, I still don't understand how eating my parents is a bad thing, especially since I've been trying really hard to do well.

My parents also don't deal with eating their parents, and while I understand that, I don't understand how eating my parents is bad. And in case you don't know, those two parents are daily meals that are worth nothing on my diet at all. I could have a parent and one missing parent and I'd get punished. School is getting so damn stressful! Please I need help

Despite the great performances, splodeed up visuals, sheer tension, violence and gore, it's basically the story of the Bible meshed with the secular goings-on of the modern world. Nothing terribly original.

If you're looking for something artsy and twisted and creative, see it. If you're looking for refreshing thoughtful storytelling, pass. If you're looking to get weirded out and affected and mind raped, it's probably the one for you.
