What You Do When Not Doing What You Do.

Recommended Posts

I guess I'll start. I read, do homework, play video games, and talk to friends when I'm not at school or sports practice. I'm currently reading Free to Choose By Milton Friedman (R.I.P.). As far as video games go, I'm currently enraptured by Gears of War. But seeing as the rest of the teenage population of this forum is female I highly doubt you guys care about my shooter game. As far as friends go, well let's just say that I have a hard time fitting in with the jocks due to the fact that epistomology and such aren't their favorite subjects. As for the nerds at my school...well they don't really like football and baseball. Oh well, I'll live.

I also frequent another forum. It's a history forum but I'm not particularly big on history. However, they tolerate me in the intellectual discussion, world affairs, and off-topic cafe.

Anyone else?

And here I am.

I pretty much do what you do. I read (when I have the time), play video games (stuff like Crash Bandicoot, Spyro, and Mortal Kombat), I listen to music (almost constantly), and I play the guitar. I'm also online quite a bit, as many of you will be able to tell.

I'm more or less retired, but still working when I can find work, but when I'm not doing that, I'm either at the Kurzweil synthesizers, composing my next symphony, or just relaxing and playing the piano. If I'm in a mood to work on visual projects, I might spend some time in Alias Maya, constructing scenery for an animation that I've been working on for the past 24 years. Or I might be editing videos of my various travels to faraway places, or of my daughter. In between all that, I post on "heathen" forums that are filled with Socialists and Statists and try to annoy them with Objectivist ethics. And when I'm not there, annoying heathens, I'm here, looking for my sanity. :)

You want an entertaining group to have some fun with? Try this group. www.stormfront.org

Those guys are fierce, and not necessarily logically either.

You want a good forum that is slightly polarized at the current moment, but overall is very fun to hang around and has a great and hilarious community? Try www.simaqianstudio.com. I'm registered there as Atlas.

Kori, sounds like PS2 judging by the games. I'm more of an xbox guy myself because they have better games overall. Gears of War is incredible. (if you care)

Anyways I better be getting off to bed. TDay football practice at 10 tomorrow.

Yeah, I just got a PS2 at the beginning of the summer. I love it, but I don't play it too often. (I forgot, I also LOVE Guitar Hero!). Gears of War looks pretty cool, but I'm usually not very good at games like that. I have to stick to silliness like Spyro and Crash. :) Oh, I also have a Super Nintendo (old school, donkey kong, baby!), a PS1, and a GameBoy Advance SP. Good stuff. I love portable video games.

Can't believe you have practice on Thanksgiving. Sheesh! Good luck though!

Ya, state quarterfinals this week. Don't get there by taking days off.

You wanna talk old school? You should play my NES some time. (gimme a minute while I look for a nerdy smiley) :geek: Haha, sweet. This place has one. My other forum has like...8 smileys and those are just the basics. :ike: That one reminds me of Ike from South Park. Holy crap the html is : ike : no wonder. Ya, I get a tad scatterbrained at night.

You guys are so funny. :lol: Old school. Oy You wanna talk old school video games, try Coleco and Atari. Oh, my god, I'm an old fart. hehehehhehe Well, not that old but old enough to remember when these prehistoric things came out and it was all the rage back then. I was in between 10 and 13 maybe then ?? I was also a hardcore video game junkie as a kid, mastered every videogame they came out with. I remember late nights staying up until 4 or 5 am with my dad or friends trying to get past levels. LOL Oh, my god, I even remember when MTV first aired. I was so excited to see it. :hyper:

Ha! Man, I dread the day I say something like that. :tongue: *assumes 90 year old man imitation* "When I was your age I used to have to walk fifteen miles to school, uphill both ways, in the freezing snow, barefoot, with no sidewalks because all we had was dirt roads that you'd slip on unless you were careful. More careful than you youngins these days." Ha! I'm just playing.

LMAO. You're not an old fart. If you were an old fart, you'd say, "I remember when I was stationed in Germany during WWII." Or something. I don't even know what Coleco is, but I've heard of Atari.

Also, you got to live through when MTV actually aired music, you lucky mofo!

There is a saying, "The older a man gets, the farther he's had to walk to school as a boy." :)

I noticed it. I also found all the other emoticons. I <3 scroll bars. And I agree, this place needs some life, or maybe just to be deleted, so we can all hang out in the other sections.

I pull the ferrets out for some playtime. One or the other of the three always needs a walk, whether it's rain or shine...

Laundry. Alway best to keep on top of it.

Ironing -- ditto. Have this thing about linen napkins: my personal outlet for OCD.

Have a cigarette and look out the window.

Peruse Craigslist "Rants and Raves"

What's your history forum, Danneskold?

So I'm entering in the middle of this, sorry if I interuppt the flow between the old-school video games and old man imitations ^^;

While not in school....hmm. Well, lately I'm putting in overtime at school (try 7:00 to 6:00) due to an insane over-involvement in the drama department, both as a techie and an actor (ie, the rare Techtor). I'm one of the biggest Broadway nuts you'll meet in your life, and my current obsession is tick, tick...BOOM!, created by Jonathan Larson. Better than RENT, believe you me. 'Therapy' is such a great song. I read too much, and over the years I have developed an affinity for murder romances and anthropology books. I play rugby...and that's about it. That's my life: Broadway, books, and rugby.
