Painting works ;)

I have a couple drum machines and sequencers on an Ipad but I don’t get out much to annoy anyone else...so I annoy myself to make up for it.

Perhaps I could just record an 808 kick drum, play it on repeat and have the next great (c)Rap hit...

Before I went to music as a serious hobby I spent a couple years drawing and working with ink, but as much as I loved it, I just did not have the ability.

But I can make an EXTREMELY annoying kick drum!

Thanks, Norm.

We know when to hold’em, and then when to fold’em. Games are good, as long as we know when to play, and when to work/study/care for our loved ones.

Leisure time - better than the one armed bandits at the local casino. Saw my drooling slack-jawed blue haired cousin get caught up in that.

No thanks. More fun sending one liners to the kiddies in the Barrens.

Fear not the cold/snow/icy roads...Go to the nearest snowmobile shop and get a few boxes of ice spikes used on the lake racers.

Have the tires ‘studded’ with them.

Profit!

Besides, the spikes would add to the whole Cooper thing ;)

when you have no real life, virtual life must look pretty good, to some. others just go and work harder and make a life for themselves in the real world. actually interact and do things for actual other people that could use a little help or companionship.

No problem.

Back when our spring biker bash was worth a crap, we’d get Molly Hatchet or Blackfoot as the Saturday night band.

Now it’s always some “popular local band”.

Meh.

When Joe 6-pack showed me your Harley, it took my breath away and then just mesmerized me — a fantastically beautiful work of art. We spent a weekend’s afternoon studying the online galleries at the site you provided. Joe has visited the Frazetta museum, and I look forward to accompanying him the next time around. You never cease to amaze me, Salamander de l’Oakwood. ;^)

part of me can understand it, but they aren’t much help to anyone in the real world they could actually help and make a real difference to. plus it’s not like they’re learning anything that can help them - no skills or new abilities or anythjing. it’s a pretty self-centered, pity move if that’s what their mindset is.

I don’t deny that. But what I am saying is that most people are not like many here on FR...willing to not sit impotently by and say/do nothing.

Most of America and the rest of the planet has had the fight beat out of them by a non-stop barrage of PC BS and across-the-board liberalism.

Faced with a non stop assault of people thrown in jail/sued for spanking their kids/the gay agenda shoved down their throats/gas at $5 a gallon to save the endangered snarfblat/the Constitution ignored by Repub and Dem alike...
(add any of a million MORE things here)...

It is not hard to imagine Joe Average saying “You know what? We lost. Our own party doesn’t do shit. It gets worse every day and nothing I do matters.”

It is indeed self pitying, but it is at least based on something real. In their virtual world, they are with people they like, doing things they enjoy. The way the ‘real’ world used to be. At least to a point. They aren’t used, lied to, crapped on and treated like brainless idiots by their leaders/next door neighbors.

No, it most definitely sucks. But I can wholly understand it. And that should be a wake-up call to EVERYONE. When the real world has gotten so F’d up that it now drives ‘normal’ people into virtual fantasies to escape it, perhaps it’s time to do something ‘real’ about it. And fix this mess. Whether at the voting booth, the local school board or the neighborhood. There are after all, still more of ‘us’ than of ‘them’. and we can effect ‘change’ if we really want to.

(And no, I’m not advocating violence for any lib looking for an excuse to point to.)

Excellent. Regardless of what one thinks of Ron Paul, he was winning the delegates in NV in 2008. The RNC shut down the caucus and made a secrete meeting at a secret time and place. How can one have faith in a system like that? I’m fairly regularly contacting my Representatives. It’s pretty much “blah, blah, I don’t care and my lobster is getting cold.” We try to vote good people into office, then find out they’re abject liars, or Mr. Wimpy pants that cries and is impotent. It’s not very encouraging for the future of our nation. I can’t blame someone for wanting to escape for a few hours in a game where they have a sense of some power.

Yes and you know something else? Everyone in WoW or any other Role Playing Game online/offline/console/whatever not only feels control over their destiny, they are also sure that they are all playing by ONE SET OF RULES. Even if that set of rules happens to take place in a medieval fantasy or spaceborne whatever And if you excel at whatever it is you are doing in the game in question, you will likely profit from your ‘labor’.

Gee... I almost think there might be a connection ther to something I cannot quite put a finger on....
