    Default LaLa's Laughably Silly Random Banter Thread - RB #158

    Greetings and salutations, my friends. Welcome to the 158th edition of the Random Banter Thread. Be sure to have fun. Today, we are serving some copy/pasta.

    Rule List
    Yay for 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.

    15. If you can avoid dibs calling on making the next thread, that will avoid people needing to wait if the thread hits 50 pages while the dibs-caller is asleep.

    Personally I prefer constant avatars, or at least a constant character in my avatars. Otherwise people forget me.

    I usually make the avatars based on something that happened in real life or... or something that I just felt like doing.

    Oh Dr Who. I really don't think I can get into you. To expansive and scary, for one. On the other hand, I saw an episode involving the robot dog, and it seemed to take place in the same world all british shows tend to take place in. A weird, slightly over saturated with light place, where everyone sounds like they are in a comedy, but the lines don't match up with how they sound, and generally it just feels weird.

    I've always been more a trekkie, myself.

    It's the avatar I used back during the Super Hero/Villain week.
    It's The Violator from Spawn. I like it beccause it's deliciously gruesome.

    The Stigatar has been put on the back burner for a while. I'm sure it will arise again when the inevitable discussion comes back with someone asking who The Stig is, and only gets a load of cryptic Stig Facts™.

    Couldn't remember the name. I used to have a toy of a four-armed version whose name meant it broke backs. I think it was the Violator's brother or something. Never really read Spawn; my older brother had the original comics but he wouldn't let me look at them.

    You should probably change the avatar credit in your sig to go with the avatar.

    Ku isn't the Stig anyway. Edge is the Stig.

    The falling for his companions thing is not actually an inherent trait of Rose.
    Also, I don't feel you can really say Rose was the worst thing to happen to Who for a while, since she was part of restarting the series. You can say it could have been better with a different companion, but her happening was part of going from no Who to some Who, which was definitely a good thing.

    He is in deed. The comics were good, but the movie was absolutely terrible.
    I reaffirmed that at the time I got the avatar by actually watching it again, and i simply cannot understate the terribleness of that movie.

    Even the Dolph Lundgren incarnation of The Punisher was positively brilliant in comparison.

    I haven't actually read the comics for years and years (not since before I moved to Scotland, in fact), so I can't remember whether Violator had a brother or not. Then again, he is a lower-level demon, so the four-armed version could have been another demon, I guess.

    Elfangor was right to not kill those yeerks, by the way. As mediocrely written as the end to the series was, it brought a very interesting point with it:
    Spoiler
    Show

    The yeerks only really wanted to be free of their own pitiful existence. Sure there were the evil ones who wanted to stop at nothing to control the galaxy, but for the most part those were the ones in charge and they got there by being ruthless jerks, so it's unsurprising that they're, you know, ruthless jerks.

    It's kind of a commentary in a way: who rises to the top? The ones that want power. Then it turns out that the morphing technology that the Andalites were hiding desperately is the solution to the entire war: offer terms of peace, allow the yeerks to become nothlits in bodies they prefer, and BAM. Yes, you've caused mass extinction of a sentient species but on the other hand you've managed to make that entire species happy.

    They didn't want war: they didn't want to be trapped.

    Friggin' love Applegate. If there had only been 10 books that were each 400-500 pages long, we'd all be saying "Harry who?"

    I just had a massive "I want to kill him" moment with a teacher. He sent us this e-mail saying "remember your exam is on Tuesday, May 12." I felt like my insides suddenly disappeared and I bolted upright. I missed the final Exam? What?

    Then.... "Wait.... Tuesday May 12?" Checked the calendar. Tuesday was May 10. The exam is tomorrow.

    He nearly gave me a heart attack!

    A very beautiful book imo. I loved the way it took the simple Hork-Bajir and gave them... a tradition. A depth that wasn't ever intended (from their design standpoint). That story really hi-lighted that the possibility of being a Seer wasn't something that you gain but rather the symbolism of losing whatever it is that prevents their intelligence.

    Which is awesome.

    Plus it was amazingly well written and brought together the storylines amazingly.

    And the Ellimist is just friggen' awesome. One of my favorite characters in a story ever from a design perspective, if just because every time he's accused of being omnipotent he says, "Maybe from your limited perspective."

    Is that because it is difficult, or because it is really really really really gross and ew and bad? Because I can get behind both of those. I'm lucky to have never had to dissect anything in my life other then plots of video games.

    I've dissected:
    - A bunch of rats.
    - A trout (it was delicious P:)
    - Various sheep bits, including eyeball.
    - 2 or so flying foxes (both female, although I was meant to do one of each)
    - an earthworm
    - A pigeon
    - Cane toads
    - Whatever else I've forgotten.
    I have pictures online, too

    Atleast it wasn't real life pictures. If it's real life pictures I'd literally be throwing up right now.

    I'm trying to think of all the times that the Ellimist actually deus-ex'd them. Like straight up deus-ex'd them.

    There was Book 7 where he went all tricky-tricky on Rachel to show her where the Kandrona was? That was flipping awesome. But it was so shrouded what his actual goal was... I dunno I don't really count that as Deus-Ex.

    He intervened in the free hork-bajiir, but the extent of his intervention is... unknown.

    In The Attack he was just an over-glorified Transporter from Star Trek.

    It *is* revealed that he masterminded the entire team coming together which is pretty bad-ass but that's not so much "deus-ex" as it is the chess match between Crayak and Ellimist. Which is so bloody cool.

    Like I said from a design perspective the Ellimist is probably the single greatest character I've ever encountered.

    The main one that comes to my mind is when he froze time to "give them an alternative reality"/(give them time to think of a way out).
    Didn't he also bring back their memories in the super-timetravel Megamorph?

    In Megamorphs 4? Or the one where they get the time matrix? When they get the matrix I'm pretty sure that they were given back their memories as part of the deal between Crayak and the Ellimist: neither wanted Visser Four running around with the Matrix and the only solution they agreed upon was reverting history to its normal state. The best plan they could agree on was to let the Animorphs go after Visser Four.
