#14150316 NEEERRDstyle, y'all! Tats, clothes, jewelry?

Posted by LilInstigator on 02 April 2019 - 06:56 AM

Geek is chic or something now, right? Figured I'd have a talk. Nothing really substantial to post, but anyway... Have a few tattoos and getting more, tend to wear KidRobot and other arguably neat things. Multicolored pants. Invicta watches. Ears pierced. You know the whole thing.

 

What are you guys covering yourselves with for the sake of stylin'?

 

As far as work attire goes I pretty much have to wear jeans and a black tshirt or dress up every day.

I've lost around 92 pounds since January of 2018, but I'm still pretty big. Trying to lose an additional 70. I was yanked off of a bunch of psychiatric meds a few years ago and more than doubled my body weight. It was a lot easier to put on than it has been taking it off, I can tell you that.




#14150313 Should Some Video Games Use A Two Year Life Cycle?

Posted by LilInstigator on 02 April 2019 - 06:49 AM

Y'know it really seems to depend on the game. I've never been a fan of sports games, unless they're of the, "Kooky," variety. Even still, only up until about the Sega Saturn/PS1 era. Stuff like Madden has never interested me. I would assume, however, that they don't do that because the team lineups change every year. If it wasn't tied to specific players and franchises that can change month-to-month, I would guess that they might do that. Every time a new game comes out they make tons of cash though, so I'm sure they're not complaining about just having to make some minor tweaks here and there. That's just what I think based on extremely limited information, though, I don't have any understanding of sports.

 

Now with the Call of Duty games... I kinda agree, it's pretty much all Activision friggin' has now, as anything other than just a publisher. But it sells! And every 8 months, or whatever, there's a new Call of Duty game that a handful of my friends run out to buy just so they can blow each other up in...new? and...exciting? ways? I guess?

 

I mean, for me, Unreal GOTY 1999 has had a 20 year life cycle.

 

Also, yeah, Battle Royales I can live without, but maybe it's not so different from all of the arena shooters that started to come out around 1998 and didn't stop until 2006.




#14150310 What are you listening to? (Music Discussion Thread)

I was always a fan of Joy Electric, the Starflyer 59 guy's brother's solo electronic thang.

I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE Joy Electric like I can't even explain. Ronnie Martin is also a pretty good writer. He did some Christian self help book things that are pretty good. The guy he wrote one of them with is a little...sterile, I guess. Just doesn't seem like he's lived much. Ronnie has.

 

I wish there was more new material from both of them, but they're older and have families now.

 

Although since the months have passed since this was first posted, I've been listening to hecka lots of the Descendents and Leftover Crack.




#14012537 Atari 2600 Freaks?

Posted by LilInstigator on 16 June 2018 - 12:22 AM

I'm an Atari 2600 fanatic, just seeing who else is on here that LOVES the old Atari console.

 

I'm interested in the 5200 and 7800, but I haven't been able to purchase them yet.

Almost Constantly:

 

Black Moth Super Rainbow (Pittsburgh synth psychedelia)

Softball (Japanese all-girl punk rock band.)

Starflyer 59 (Legendary Indie Rock)

 

At least for the last several months.
