TO THE PEOPLE OF FLARE SCI-FI FORUMS:

I have returned. By the grace of Almighty Bog my forces stand again on Flarite soil -- soil consecrated in the blood of our two peoples. I have come, dedicated and committed, to the task of destroying every vestige of enemy control over your daily lives, and of restoring, upon a foundation of indestructible, strength, the liberties of our people.

At my side is your President, Charles Capps, worthy successor of that great patriot, Jubilee, with members of his cabinet. The seat of your government is now therefore firmly re- established on Flarite soil.

The hour of your redemption is here. Your patriots have demonstrated an unswerving and resolute devotion to the principles of freedom that challenges the best that is written on the pages of human history. I now call upon your supreme effort that the enemy may know from the temper of an aroused and outraged people within that he has a force there to contend with no less violent than is the force committed from without.

Rally to me. Let the indomitable spirit of Starships & Technology and The Flameboard lead on. As the lines of battle roll forward to bring you within the zone of operations, rise and strike. Strike at every favorable opportunity. For your homes and hearths, strike! For future generations of your sons and daughters, strike! In the name of your sacred dead, strike! Let no heart be faint. Let every arm be steeled. The guidance of divine Frank points the way. Follow in His Name to the Holy Grail of righteous victory!

Eff a track meet, Mim. She was all about lacrosse & ice skating. And yes, Michael, we now Do return to your regularly scheduled programming.

Also, I know there will be questions about my goings-on, both past & present. I will attempt to answer them in a somewhat timely & not-necessarily-truthful fashion.

You mean like how this whole thing has been a CIA cover-story to account for your absence whilst you were engaged in an operation to stop a rogue nuclear submarine from crossing the Indian Ocean and attacking Australia? Or is that still code-word clearance?

Trek art? Simple. The E-E cutaway poster, a VGR promo poster of Seven of Nine, & updated versions of the 2 vertical Starfleet Museum deals that I did.

No, PW, it's just that some of them weren't that great quality. You can still fuck up with a digicam.

The small naked girl is my friend Awesome Jen; that party was held for her 20th birthday at my flat. The 2 fat guys were here friends Rhoadsy & Jere. Everyone else was my friend: Double Jenn, the redhead; Steve, her then-boyfriend & who is now a source of more-than-average irritation to me (another long story); Aleta, the girl with the long bushy dark hair (her boyrfriend Enzo, took the pictures as he's a photo man); & Leah, my girlfriend, the chubby girl in the make out. Leah's other boyfriend (the one of record), Jeff, didn't show up until 0200 because his timesense is all fucked. Maybe he's part Sadrao.

A lesson to be learned here: challenge not, lest ye be overwhelmed.

That's why I started giving them adjectival descriptors. I have Crazy Jen (my ex-roommate from about 4 & a half years ago), Awesome Jen (who's just awesome), & Double Jenn (because she uses 2 Ns...& her jugs.) That's just in the immediate play.

Adjectival descriptors... BRILLIANT! Why didn't I think of that. I've just been going by last names, which is embarassing because I've forgotten a couple over the years. [Razz] In my life, I have Jen Hayes (my sweetie), Jennie Wyatt, Jennifer Claiborne, Jenny Chu, Jennie Chester, Gigi Jackson ("Gigi" from her initials whilst growing up in France), Jennifer Alley, Jennifer Ford, Jenny Jones (no, not that one), and of course the two Jens whose last names I now can't remember... Time to bust out my thesaurus. I can tell you now, my sweetie is Magnificent Jen -- look it up. I prefer the American Heritage definitions...

I went to grade school with a Jennifer (who went by "Jenny", and later "Jenni"), and, for a while, I worked with a Jennifer (who went by "Jen").

That's pretty much it. I don't know what's wrong with all you people.
 
Posted by Peregrinus (Member # 504) on :
 
For the record, now that I'm not rushed...

magnificent ADJECTIVE:

1. Splendid in appearance; grand.
2. Grand or noble in thought or deed; exalted.
3. Outstanding of its kind; superlative.

Now, I fully admit I'm a little biased, but I go with all three definitions. [Big Grin]

--Jonah
 
Posted by Shik (Member # 343) on :
 
Well, you see....we're not the size of Siam (even me, with my recent alarming trend of fattification), so women tend to flock to us & we get many with the same names. Male pattern baldness, baby. It's where it's at.

Plus (as Leah has repeatedly said), I "fuck like a porn star" & "eat pussy in an awesome way." So I've got that going for me.

Jonah: you should call your Jen "THE Jen." Or better yet, be like the Cubans when they reference Castro, but instead of saying "HIM" & motioning a beard, say "HER" & motion...I dunno, her curves. Or her tits. Whatever.

I could've skipped that one.

I am so teling her you said that, Jason! [Big Grin]

I'm thinkin' I'll stick with Jen. Definitive article. The others get modifiers. She is... Jen... Thou shalt have no other Jen before me.

I do not have male pattern baldness. Not am I fat, or in any immediate danger of becoming so. And yet, they come to me like moths to a flame. Or something...

And I shall not comment on my prodigious m4d L33t Sex God powerz. They are a gift, and I will never use them for evil.

I've never slept with a "Jennifer" either (wanted to once with a "Jen"- badly- but she worked with me and that's a personal no-no).

I hooked up with a girl named "Pam" once and that was just...wrong...as that's my sister's name.
Yes, I have a sister: dont tell Palpaltine, okay?

I don't know anyone named Jennifer. Or Jenny etc. I do know 5 thousand Clare/Claire's, Katie/Katy's and Amy's though. I am presently wondering whether to make a move on a girl I fancy who has a boyfriend that she doesn't especially seem to like and who everyone else hates and who is less cool than me.

Seriously.

No Jennifer's here, either. Sorry.
 
Posted by TSN (Member # 31) on :
 
"That's different how?"

Well, in that she started spelling it with an 'i'. If I remember correctly, she also had a tendency to dot the 'i' with a heart.

But, I mean, we are talking about fifth or sixth grade here. (I don't know what the British equivalent is. Like, 11 or 12 years old.)

I've only met two women named Claire, and they'd melt your testes at 20 yards.

Women named Tonya tend to be very hot as well.

All the Cliares I've ever known have most definitely not been fat.

Liam... I think it might almost be interesting to chart geographical trens in English-speaking countries to see which names are more popular in which regions. My biggies are Jennifer and Heather.

Posted by Da_bang80 (Member # 528) on :
 
Jen is my favorite female's name too. I knew a Jen in school. She was the prettiest girl you ever saw. She wasn't as skinny as the Jen in Shik's Pics (Lol @ Rhyme) But it was in ALL the right places [Wink]
 
Posted by Jason Abbadon (Member # 882) on :

Seriously- she was straight and everything, she just a bad sense of fashion or something.

All the Heathers I've known have been HAWT.

As for the matter of Jens, DB... I've already admmitted I'm biased, but I think my Jen is the prettiest, most intense, sexiest, offbeat, and fun to be with person I've ever met. And considering all the places I've been and people I've met, that's actually saying something.

Coincidentally, she's got a whole Jennifer Connelly thing going on there.

--Jonah
 
Posted by Lee (Member # 393) on :
 
It's the eyes, I think. Especially in the CRX one. I probably shouldn't have said anything, poor girl, next time you see her you'll probably want her to re-create that scene from Requiem For A Dream. . .

Bite me. It's a fun movie. I'm sorry if you are so dead inside as to not enjoy it. [Razz]

Funnily enough, I have been told in the past (when I was healthy as well as clean-shaven ) that I looked like the bastard love child of Keifer Sutherland and Jim Carrey. Never quite knew what to make of that...

--Jonah

P.S. Don't worry, Lee. She's safe. Even though she's got impressive boobs, too, like Ms. Connelley. I don't think she looks like anyone but her. But then I'm still quite nutso in love, even after seven years. [Big Grin]

Jim Carrey and Keifer Sutherland I don't mind, but Triple H? That's mean...

P.S. The style has been around since the mid-1800s. Triple H didn't invent it, y'know. [Razz]

Full-scale Chet Arthur mutton-chops I could at least accept as a sort of absurdist retro look. But this scraggly-ass James Hetfield shit just doesn't cut it.

Posted by Peregrinus (Member # 504) on :
 
And not likely to ever be, with no real history of baldness for several generations back. It is almost certainly a trick of the light. That last pic was taken in the summer of '98. This is me a couple months ago, out of the hospital, but still feeble. That's where my hairline's been my entire adult life. I can tell by the scar.

Sad that they lobotomized Wyngarde/Mastermind in the last X-Men movie.
They even went so far as to keep his mis-matched eye color though...stupid they called him "Stryker" (what a bullshit name).
 
Posted by Sol System (Member # 30) on :
 
Unlike X-Men names in general! Which are totally sensible! Psylocke!
 
Posted by Jason Abbadon (Member # 882) on :
 
No, not a supergero name: "Stryker" was the guy's last name in the movie (his dad is the movie's main bad guy that gave Wolverine his claws/skeeleton).
 
Posted by Sol System (Member # 30) on :
 
Oh well that's one hundred percent different as I cannot think of any bizarre and/or implausable X-Men surnames. (Though, to be fair, all the ones that spring to mind are, like, Spider-Man characters or something.)
 
Posted by Peregrinus (Member # 504) on :
 
Osborne? Octavius? Parker? Jameson? Watson?

*heh*

Accept that to make the movies, they're going to have to mush all of the X-Men fluff together. In the comics, the Canadian government was the entity that gave Wolvie his Adamantium, and the process was created by the father of Lady Deathstryke. William Stryker was a former Army officer who became an anti-mutant born-again type after his irradiated sperm caused his son to be a mutant. He was rushing his pregnant wife to hospital, they crashed, she gave birth to "a monster". He killed it, and his wife for giving birth to such a thing, and started preaching to the masses.

Rogue was a nameless orphan taken in by Mystique down in the Louisiana bayous and trained to be a super-villain.

And they didn't even bother to at least have the five original X-Men be the team in the first one. *shrug*

I love them as movie adaptations, though.

--Jonah

P.S. THey should have gotten Iman to play Storm. And with all their other attention to detail, they should have gotten her eyes right.
 
Posted by Lee (Member # 393) on :
 
Y'know, it's weird. I've always liked the X-Men, although I was far from being a devoted follower of the comcs. And I liked both films, and am looking forward to the next one (although Christ knows how I'll get to see it, having only been to the cinema once in the past year and a half and thus missed Batman Begins, V For Vendetta, God knows what else).

But I can't keep track of the characters. Especially remembering which ones have been in the films to date, and how their backstories therein compare to the original comics predeccessors. I try, but my eyes just glaze over. I need a chart. Something that tells me nickname, real name, what they look like in film and comic, backstory in film and comic. . . One day I'll put something together, or at least successfully Google something.

ROM: SPACE TOASTER

Rom was actually extremely well done for it's day: a LOT of supporting charcters died horribly at the hands of the Dire Wraiths (shape-shifting alien badies that vamp all your knowledge while siphoning out your brain via a tounge probiscus thingie).

He'd need a serious update if a movie/TV movie were to fly.

Did you draw that? Your anatomy is a bit off...

I've been re-discovering my alltime favorite sci-fi comic: Alien Legion.
Man, the TPB of the second series are amazing- lots on nopn-humanoid aliens and cool spaceships like nothing seen before (or since).
Jugger Grimrod is my personal role model in all things.

In my impressive but very selective comic collection I have the entire run of Rom (first series I collected seriously, starting with the first issue -- I was five at the time), including the recent Spaceknights five-issue miniseries; and the entirety of Alien Legion. And, thanks to my Peter David-Incredible Hulk run, I have the issue where Rom and Candy show up for Rick Jones' wedding. [Smile]

Nim: No corsets on men when I was there. A girl draped along a motorcycle getting hot wax dribbled on her, a couple people in various degrees of gimp-suit, a variety of restraints and pain-inflicting devices, and good music and drinks... But no men in corsets.

Liam: It's okay. X-Men was where I first SAW that beard style, but I had plenty of time to research it before my own face-fur started growing in seriously enough to do anything like that..

P.S. Happy was I last year when Marvel did a six-issue Beta Ray Bill miniseries. I've always loved that Korbinite construct...

Yeah, that bit where Rom and Brandy made the wedding was sweet- no explanation as to how was even attempted.
I passed on the "spaceknights" limited series though- looked bad. Real bad.

I may do some Alien Legion sketches- so inspired am I after re-reading them in TPB (cheap as dirt via Amazon too!).

Did you draw that? Your anatomy is a bit off...


Yeah, I'm the culprit on that. I was bored and trying to find some inspiration to get the artistic juices flowing and did a quick ink & colored pencil rendering. I realized the errors after I inked it but for just a 10 min. sketch it ain't THAT bad.

I am going to do some more though.

It's better than a lot of published "glamor shots" that used to be at the back of Marvel Fanfare.

Draw a nice Sarigar.

I'm thinkig of doing a Grimrod sketch based on Sean Bean (Alien Legion creator Carl Potts says that's who he'd cast as Grimrod in a proposed AL movie, and I wholeheartedly agree).

Well... Here's an old drawing of my character for a Transformers RPG I played back in the day. And while I'm at it, here is a pic of Minerva -- who I mentioned way earlier in this thread. I also have more screengrabs from Headmasters, including a couple of neat ones with Perceptor (yes, I used "Perceptor" and "neat" in the same phrase).

And heck, since I'm thinking about it, here's a scan of the development and prototype for Megatron. Now see where the animators got their reference?

And because I'm feeling wacky, here's one of the things that makes cel animation fun.

Okay, how the fuck did that happen? I looked to double-check I wasn't quoting myself when I went in to edit a typo. Shit-monkeys. Why is there a time limit on editing/deleting?

There, see, I DO know the difference. This wasn't the sort of commentary I was hoping to spark...

No, you did. Have one, I mean. As the first ever (trial) ladyboy of the Hellfire Club.
I guess it was meant kind of as a nudge-nudge joke. It's what guys do sometimes... From time to time...
Dear oh dear.

Anyway, get well soon!

Oh-ho-ho... I would not have been the first ladyboy of the Hellfire Club by ANY stretch. I will spare you descriptions. [Wink]

Here in SoFla, the Fetish crowd and the transgender crowd are pretty seperate.

Most of the (straight) latex set know each other already (sadly, I'm now far removed from the scene, though I still get the occasional invite).

The fetish crowd or the transgender crowd?

Ah...I was waiting for that inevitable pun.

I was once a semi-regular at some fetish parties (as many of my friends attend them and "live the lifestyle") but now I'm a one-legged manager monkey with one day off a week and my old social life of drinking, fetih parties, clubbing and wearing too much black is dead as vaudville.

(lament!)

Today's paper had a funny transgender story of two "men" in drag that stole a new SUV while on a test drive, only to get caught (as men) soon after.
Seems they thought they were convincing as women, but only to themselves.
