Damn.....I really wanted to shoot somebody in the neck too.
That was OUR SECRET!!
Ahhh... at the moment I'm thinking I probably won't make it.
You're welcome to come get the pyramids from me to use for the war though. Just bring them to the October YANO.
Don't feel left out, Josh. Spoon has a crush on you.
You're a very bad man for not making it. Don't leave me alone with these people!
Around that time the three of us created the Nerf Listerv email list, which officially began the Nerf internet community and eventually over the years ballooned into dozens (hundreds?) of sites and thousands of people (mostly wankers).
I also organized the first recorded large scale Nerf wars on the West Coast (LANOs) seven years ago which have continued (more or less) to this day, now called YANOs.
Then I was an admin on Nerf Online, which for a time was very large and popular, and wrote columns for the site about all sorts of wonderful Nerf-related stuff. Those articles are reprinted here on Nerf Haven.
For a time I lived like a Playboy, jet-setting around the globe mixing, mingling and sleeping with a menagarie of the world's most beautiful women while drinking the finest wines and toasting to my trademark hair that made it all possible.
These days I live like a recluse, my only friend being my aloof Austrian butler, while feverishly working on my "art" films and wearing a two decade old tattered mink coat and babbling about the "old days" when I was "a great star". Occasionally I show up at a Nerf war and shoot people.
Did I just write six paragraphs about how great I am? Why yes, yes I did. I just can't get over myself! And THAT, my friend, is why everyone loves me.
Yeah that's all you need to do. If you look in your services (in Administrative Tools) you'll see two Folding services, one from each directory, running. If you're running hyperthreaded mode and your Task Manager (Ctrl-Alt-Del) shows 100% CPU usage then you're good to go.
Cx, ignore my PM, I figured it out.
All I did was c/p the console into a new folder (F@H2) and then ran it. I configured everything as default, but went into advanced options and waited until it came to "Machine ID" and then entered in a "2".
It's now downloaded a WU, and I'm running 2 consoles at once!
I'm damn excited now!
For those of you with hyperthreaded or dual core processors, make sure you're running two copies of the console client (from different directories and with different machine ID's specified in the advanced options) so that you're using both cores/logical processors!
I have one, possibly two relatively stock LnL's that you can use. Need to be modded to shoot micro Stefans though.
When I went into TRU today for the first time in months, and saw that they have re-released the SM 3K's in double packs, I just about fainted. SM3K 4-EVER B10TCH!!
We won't be able to get there until like 11:30am just FYI.
UPDATE: Fuck. It's 12:30am and I JUST realized that I have NO weights to make darts with, and I have ABSOLUTELY NO darts left. I gave the few remaining ones I had at the last YANO to Cxwq......so I hope you're bringing a bunch of darts tomorrow buddy.....
Not dead. I generally give a quick once over to the boards every couple days. Film school is killing me, wringing me like a sponge, squeezing all of my life and vitality right out. Last semester though. After I shoot and finish my thesis film this summer I'm all done and can finally get started on unemployment, poverty, and my inevitable, humiliating degredation as I go work at Hollywood Video to pay my rent.
Damn, haven't seen you in a while, Spoon. I thought you were dead... or in portugal. One or the other.
PS: Add me to the attendance list, fuck this tentative crap. School's out by then, and god knows I won't be doing much on a Monday.....Holy crap I gotta find new guns and mod them in the next 6 weeks. The war sounds awesome.
But seriously, do we still want to do it at Venado? We've gotten kicked out of the urban area the last 4 times in a row. The trees and CTF were ok, but it's kind of stale.
Turns out, my school (and therefore my place of work) IS open this week, so I actually have to work the morning of the war and can't get out of it. Good news is I only work till 11, so I'll be at the war by 11:30am. Bah, sorry guys. Don't wait for me obviously.
Steph probably can't come on the 22nd but could come on the 26th. I can't find if this year's winter solstice is Dec 21 or 22. If it's the 22nd then she won't be there. I can still make either date. It seems I'm too late though, so I'll talk to her. I need to check the boards more often.
I am currently in various stages of production on three films, am writing a script, working on several other films, and completing my degree. Very busy.
I'm off of school on December 18 and will be (relatively) free until December 28, when I go out of town and then immediatly start school again when I come back.
Sorry guys, senior year of college does this to you. At least when you're a film major. Let me know.
As you all may have noticed, I haven't posted in like for-fucking-ever. See, this is my last year in film school and I'm BUSY. I don't mean "washing my hair" busy, I mean "hardly eating and getting 3 hours of sleep a night" busy. From this coming weekend until the end of November, I am booked solid on a film shoot (mine or someone elses) every weekend. I'm writing/directing three films in about six months, finishing my feature script, finishing my advanced classes.....I would list all the things I'm doing, but I'm too tired.
So yea I'm not available until Christmas break, around mid-December. If you guys want to war before that go ahead, but I unfortunately won't be there.
It sucks too, because I NEED an outlet for frustration these days. We gotta have an awesome war in December when we're all on break.
Hmm, must have changed since I did it. Though seeing as how that was a couple years ago I guess that makes sense. Back then they did it for address verification. But good to know.not true. they verify by depositing small amounts (like 29 cents) into your bank account, then ask you on their verification page what the amounts of the deposits are. its easy
you just have to verify your address with Paypal first by having them snail mail you a code
Either way, I eagerly await the FBR's availability.
Actually it's about a sarcastic pre-teen twerp who thinks he's funny.
Okay so whats this film about?
Like Commando Bob beats up the bad guys?
Or like Blo Jo walks down the street?
Or where the monster hunts the people?
Oo, oo, what about the extras are like blown up in a blast??
Maybe you already said what the film is for but I really didn't see what the fillm was about.
For those of you who have forgotten, I am a 5th year (yea, 5th) film student at Chapman University in Orange Ca. This summer in mid-August I am shooting a film, and on two of the days I need extras aged 10-13, no experience necessary!
The two days I need extras are Thursday August 12, and Wednesday August 18. We are shooting those days at a private school in Orange Ca, about an hour south of LA and an hour or so north of San Diego. The days would last 8-10 hours. We will provide lunch and snacks!
This movie is being shot on film and will be shown at a lot of film festivals. The extras in these scenes will be seen in the background of a lunch tables area at the school. Being an extra in a film can mean a LOT of waiting around, but it's also a great way to see first hand how movies are made. Even though this is a student film, we have a significant budget and lots of fun toys.
So if you or anyone you know are the right age range and would possibly be interested in this, please email me and I'll put you in touch with my Casting Director. My email can be found in my Nerf Haven profile.
What bad memories of Stealthblade? As far as I remember you guys got along well at dinner and Armageddon and stuff.
My favorite colors are Black and Green but do you see me changing my post colors? I suppose I'm just a proponent of forum uniformity. Anyways my interest here is quickly waning. Hrrm... bad memories of Stealthblade are bubbling to the surface.
And no JT, while I do remember you, you're not Stealthblade.
And Steph is also not married or 11 1/2 and nerfs. Quite well actually. So does our other friend Stephanie, who was at the last Armageddon.
