Jesus christ VACC, what kind of show are you running around here?

Are those... purple pirate boots on your feet?

I mean, this is the internet... you're always two clicks away from seeing something you can't unsee. And I feel like the guy who just took his pants off on the subway. But where I live, apparently that's not even socially inappropriate.

I was going to make some kind of crack about being on the NerfList with VACC-boy here when most of you were still in diapers, but I'm not going to do that because I don't think most of you were even born yet.

If a video of bunch of grown men getting drunk and beating the shit out of themselves in public with homemade foam weapons is taboo... I mean...

...You let these kids out to play in the Nerf Wars, right?

I'm going to try to make it to this. I don't have any guns anymore though, but it's a BART ride away.

I look forward to it!

I did some digging around on my computer. I save EVERYTHING. When I buy a new computer, I make a disk image of the old machine's drive and stick it on a RAID to be forgotten about until I need to find something embarassing.

Like right now.

Here's a video from Armageddon 2001:

And here's a video from a LANO, in October 2001:

Oh man, so cringeworthy.

If one of you fucks post these on facebook and start tagging people I might regret this whole exercise ;)

Blah, looks like I'm not going to be able to make this work. The earliest flight on Saturday gets into LAX at 11:30 am, and the latest flight leaves at 8:30... even if I stayed the night and left on Sunday It'd cost me $260 for a round-trip flight and I can't use my VA points to cover that.

Anya... for a short history lesson, the closing of NO was a bit of an accident, but when the site closed down, I was in the middle of my first year of college and didn't have much interest in continuing with it alone, and I couldn't rally enough people who were interested in running it for me. I actually wound up pissing off a lot of people I wished I hadn't. At some point I'll write the whole thing out and try to recall everything, but at the time (keep in mind this was 2001 or 2002) it just wasn't possible to keep it going, and I'd started moving on to other things. At one point (around 2003-ish) my friend Larry and I tried to bring something back and put up a shell of a site with a "coming back soon" page and some links to Amazon.com (which was actually doing a great job keeping me fed in college for a little while), but we had lost the momentum and apparently the existence of that page had pissed off even more people enough that nobody wanted to be involved in NerfOnline anymore. Shortly after that, my credit card got stolen, and a bunch of doman names I'd owned (including nerfonline.com) got snatched out from under me when the autorenew didn't work. That was pretty much the last straw and I gave up frustrated.

I ran a design, film, and photo studio in LA for a year before I moved to San Francisco, and there were plans to buy Nerf guns for all the people who worked in the office and set up a series of games to play on work breaks and such, then put a little website together for that, but we never got that off the ground either. We did wind up hosting these Effeminate bicycle ride parties though instead, but that's also another story.

I'm down in LA pretty often, so I'll check in and try to make it to a war.

Falcon, IceNine, and baghead, I'll start looking at my schedule and ticket prices, and we'll be in touch. I won't really be on my computer tomorrow, but we'll be in touch throughout the week and we'll figure out something that works. Thanks again for the offer of the ride, that makes everything work out. I'm going to also get in touch with a few other people in LA (unrelated to Nerf) who I owe a visit to, so if I make plans with them I'll extend my return flight a day or two to make things a little easier and less hurried.

VACC, I know exactly what you're talking about man, I'm out of shape. I've started playing a weekly bike polo game... some of the guys who play regularly are twenty and thirty years my senior, drink large amounts of beer before, during, and after the game, smoke like chimneys, and they still fucking own the game. I'm going to get schooled on both ends.
