    Default Zeb The Troll's Zecond Go At Ze Random Banter #139

    Random Banter

    Rules
    Spoiler
    Show

    1. Spam. For the purposes of RB, one word posts are generally considered spam. Likewise, posts that are nothing but *actions like this* are also be considered spam. Remember that the quality of the post's content is much better than the speed of your response.

    2. This isn't the Play by Post or Town forum, nor is it the Silly Message Board Games or Structured Games forum. Please avoid continuous roleplay or mock battles and fights such as the "competition for control of the universe".

    3. If it's already a thread, don't bring it to RB. RB has such a huge range of subject matter even restricted to the little snippets that probably don't warrant their own thread, it doesn't need legitimate thread topics cluttering it up as well. The exception to this is to bring something that is off-topic from one thread, but on-topic for RB and the subject doesn't warrant a thread of its own.

    4. Don't advertise other threads in RB. Just because these new threads move at speeds more appropriate to a message board than an IM session doesn't mean you need to come over to RB and brow beat people into posting in your latest brainchild.

    5. Please don't post single line posts alerting us to your current status -- as in "I'm back." This is Random Banter, not "How to stalk Random GitP forum members."

    6. Don't poke, kick or bump the thread. It will move at whatever pace it wants to. Also, please refrain from Captain Obvious comments akin to "My, the thread is fast today."

    7. Random Banter can only be as good, or as entertaining, as you make it. Demands to be entertained will fall on deaf ears unless you can add something more meaningful to the conversation.

    8. As this is a public forum, where the current topic is nicely recorded for you, and not a conversation where you could have missed the beginning, please refrain from asking something to the effect of "What's the topic?". Please take the time to read up a bit first.

    9. Thread Creator must include the words "Random" and "Banter" as well as the thread #. Try to be concise as well.

    10. Every post should contain two visible, legible complete sentences, Subject and Predicate. C'mon, make your old English teachers proud.

    11. Remember, Random Banter is not your IM client. If you want to have a back and forth discussion with just one person, look in their contact information for IM details.

    12. Whenever a new thread is created, all "first post", "first page", and all posts of that nature will be deleted by the administrators. Please avoid doing this, as it is frustrating for them to deal with one-lined posts like this.

    13. Double-posting is not your friend. We have edit buttons for a reason.

    14. Once you have made a Random Banter thread, you must wait 50 threads before making another one.

    Pudding? You set out pudding? Is this some sort of bizarre troll method of trapping the unwary. Or is this some method of mind control concocted by the Pudding Goddess. I will get to the bottom of this!

    Well, I admit that I stole some of Alarra's pudding that she had just laying around (crazy how much that is these days, I think the Puddingtroll is contributing) in order to convince folks that it's safe to come in. It's just one stage in my campaign to end Troll oppression.

    Troll Oppression? I have never noticed any Troll Oppression. Then again I am spending all my time trying to get out from under the green thumb of evil faculty and the red thumb of incompetence.

    Now it appears to be time for this dragon to take a nap.

    Puuuuuuuddiiiiiiiiing.

    Overheard my housemates laughing about the fact that one of their old housemates left because they 'made too much noise'
    The same reason I'm moving.
    Folks don't get hints.

    Also, home! Free food! Yippie!

    ^: Obviously not. So, you should leave something more concrete than hints.

    Like concrete.

    A big concrete plaque detailing your greivances with him.

    In his kitchen sink.

    Or possibly his shower so he can't use it and thus is even more smelly.

    Now, why would you go and assume that Puddingtroll pudding is diaper pudding? Now that's just nasteh. I'm trying to make inroads here, why would I do such a thing?

    Rockphed - Yes, Troll oppression. Everywhere I turn I hear "Ooo, don't feed the Trolls" or "Man, that's just like a Troll" or "Trolls are stinky ". None of this is true. It's just Firbolg propaganda from aeons past.

    Zeb - Of course, that's what YOU think, don't you, Zeb? You ARE a troll!

    I, for one, think that the fairies have it much worse. I mean, seriously, look at them. Truth was, they were pretty badass. But now, they're all giggling little girls with wings.

    I am even more confused by RB than usual right now.

    Rutskarn is chanting phallus at us. Jibar has apparently had his place attacked with vandals and bleach...

    Man, I miss having an intersting life.

    Oh, I don't know. You can tune out an interesting outer life. I've got spring giddiness! Everything is sparkles, shinies, flowers, rainbows, pointy elf ears, and Disneyfied fairies, and the cynic is sitting there mouthing "[Quincunx], what the [boop]?" but it's completely inaudible!

    Although spontaneous pudding generation is just a tiny bit odd. . .it doesn't just 'pop' like an Infinite Improbability Generator does it? I thought it came from somewhere. Solids pop but puddings. . .well, American puddings anyway. . .they're semi-liquid, and liquids don't pop. Create Water is strange that way. The water pops into existence but it immediately deforms and saturates the area!

    So I'm hitting a road-block with my next beer. I have consulted with my association of Homebrewers (as in posted on our forum) about suggestions and recommendations for my Bacon Beer. No replies yet... and I will need to be getting the ingredients by early next week! I have not done a "web search", but even that would be a little iffy... not having any good assessment and all.

    Busy busy. I've got a date tonight, my game to run tomorrow (which I've not prepared for but I've had some ideas...), then it's mother's day in the UK on Sunday so I've got to do something for that.

    I've just got my car back from its repairs. Everybody is on full action stations at work. We're all getting an end of year bonus. And the "Naked Maze Night" has just been organised, so all my friends are looking forward to that, this'll be the second time for most of us.

    So all in all a good yet busy week is in full swing.

    Hard to say, though perhaps ignorance is key.

    Just got told off by my manager at work about two hours ago.
    Apparently, they'd spot-checked a recording of one of my calls at work from last week, and figured that I'd done a poor job.
    Phrases such as "I didn't think you'd do something like that" and "I'm really disappointed to hear this" and "I thought you'd know better than to do that" and stuff like that were uttered by my manager.
    Apparently, I'd helped a customer without taking his/her details or given them a reference number.
    I asked her what the call was about, and she couldn't answer that (since she doesn't speak Norwegian or Swedish). I asked her when it was recorded, and the only answer she could give me was "last week".
    I asked if I could have a chance to listen to the recording to review it myself, and she answered that "yes" i could. However, she then said she was too busy doing something else to send me the recording.

    I just got back from lunch, and reminded her about the recording, and if she could send it to me, and at that point, she grudgingly admitted that one of the managers above her thought I was to be commended for my work and that I was doing a great job. So it seems that that manager figured that that call was just 'one bad call' that didn't reflect my overall performance.

    Yush, it's good.

    I've applied for:
    Westminster (Animation)
    Kingston (Illustration & Animation)
    Hertfordshire (2D Animation)
    Middlesex (Animation)

    I went for an interview at Westminster, And I'm still waiting to hear from them. I sent an online portfolio to Kingston, still waiting to hear from them. However, they're supposed to be in the top 3 universities in the country, so I hope I get in. I just got back from my interview at Hertfordshire, And they told me there and then that I'm in. I still have an interview at Middlesex, but I'm not too bothered about them.

    The uni is... BIG. And... Impressive. There's two main campuses and each campus is split up into different sections. The art deppartment is then split up a into the different courses. I'll be studdying in the Animation building if I go. You have to take a shuttle to get from one campus to the next, and I got lost twice. ._.
    What university has a cinema and shopping center? -_-'

    You mean, on campus? Or nearby in the city?
    If the former, I suspect none. If the latter, Newcastle. And Northumbria I suppose.
    And probably some others, but they don't have as good students as Newcastle does.

    On campus. Though I'm not sure if it's actually run by the university itself.

    Indeed. It makes drawings move! :D It's like reading a comic book, only with no reading.

    EDIT: I'm not sure to be honest. They all have their plusses.

    Westminster has a good course and a friendly environment. You can mess around with all aspects of animation from CGI, Games art, 3D, 2D digital, Stop motion with puppets and traditional pen and paper. However, the facilities aren't too special and they're not as well-recognised as other uni's
    Kingston animation course Is both an animation and illustration one, so I can focus on designing comic books, book illustrations and further develop my style while still working on animation. It's also one of the top universities in the country, though I haven't actually been to visit it.
    Hertfordshire has amazing facilities, and most importantly, close contacts with DreamWorks, BBC Pixar and what-not. They're also very good at getting you a good job and getting you to work with big names. However, they're courses are very restrictive. The other universities offer you a general an animation course, and you pick which area you want to specialise in as go progress. Here, you go either into 2D, 3D, Games Art or VFX (eg: special effects, CGI, after effects) before you even join. I picked 2D, but it's a shame because I kinda wanted to explore the other areas. But hey, they do some funky stuff in the second and third year.

    And I don't know much about Middlesex other then that it's right next to my house.

    Gosh I've been busy lately. Not with schoolwork, mind you. Because that's what I SHOULD be busy with. <.<; No, I've been busy with basically chatting with friends and joining new RP groups. *Not that I don't love you guys, but I do love me some DnD. <.<; * It kinda makes me feel like I'm being tugged in a lot of directions at once...^^; But that would be my own fault. <.<; I need to start saying no to some of these things...

    In other news, are any of you on Second Life? Yes, I know the mass hype has died down, but the fact of it is I actually have to explore this world for a class, and well, it would be nice if I could get a little help from someone who has more experience. ^^;


    Edit: Also, Nameless, I envy you and your selection of majors that actually have a job attached to them. D: I'm a "Communications and Information Design" person, and nobody has any idea what that means.

    <.<; And my masters, in "Information Design and Technology" isn't much better.

    We have a cinema on campus. And I don't see STEP being requisite for your maths undergraduate applications.

    Ah! I recall. Today is a good day. It rained on me on the way here and then someone said they approve of my triforce-related shirt.

    That sort of thing doesn't happen to me too often. There was that one time I passed a guy with a Serenity shirt while I was wearing my Dr. Horrible shirt. We exchanged cordial nods, then went on our way.

    Then there was that guy wearing Valve's official Spy shirt. I think I haven't bought one of those because I'm unworthy of it.

    Doesn't happen to *you* often? I have extensive evidence that I am in fact invisible here.

    I'm convinced it's going to turn out like the 6th Sense.

    And all those games of scrabble you played? There was only one player! WoooOooOOooo!

    I was commended today for my Star Wars shirt by a guy I bowed down to for his "Mine is an evil laugh!" shirt.

    I want a spy shirt.
