post #9001 of 11239

An amazing run of characters, and a trip down memory lane. I'd forgotten about so many of those. They did play most of it in the 90s on Cartoon Network, but I guess when you're five you don't pay attention to the names of the shows that aren't really your favorites.

 

Kind of makes me wish I were a kid again. Just let me keep reliving everything from age five to age 12 over and over again for the rest of my life and I'll be happy.

 

EDIT: I didn't even notice when I first posted this. It's over 9000!

I think it would be nice to have the knowledge you have know and be able to go back and do things differently :).

What a run! It's as if biilbob_jcv hosted a Pre-Halloween party for our delight! :ksc75smile:

In some ways I can see that, but in other ways that would probably ruin it for me. If I had to relive 12-25 (god save me if I ever do), I would certainly want to know what I know now. 5-12 is a little different, mainly because my mind was still growing and thus I saw the world a lot differently than I do now. Looking back, a lot of the stuff that captured my imagination back then seems utterly tame or pointless now.

 

The pinnacle of that period was about three months before my 12th birthday, when I had my PCDP and was able to play all my music, whenever I wanted, as often as I liked. At the time I was still into Pokemon cards and the Animorphs series and the Myst games and probably a bunch of other stuff I don't even recall at the moment. It really didn't get any better than that.

 

Apart from the music, none of that stuff could hold my attention for very long today, and despite now having much more music, broader tastes, and much better equipment to play it on, I've never enjoyed music as much as I did during that period. The whole thing lasted for at most three months. It felt like a lifetime. Now, three months feels like three days did back then.

 

So if I ever had the opportunity somehow to relive that period, I'd definitely need to adopt the mind and level of experience I had back then to make it worthwhile. Otherwise it would just be seven years much like the past seven.

ThunderCats, hoeeeeeee!

I guess to summon them they just shine that great big ThunderCatlight in the sky. I wonder if both the ThunderCats and Batman were ever needed on the same night. And there was only one cloud.

It's been brought to my attention that people don't fear or respect me the way they do Currawong when I pop into a thread.

 

To help rectify that, I have decided to adopt an avian photo of warning.  Maybe I can help change the perception of me being docile. 

 

Here's a draft, what do you guys think?

If you put a durian in there I might be more intimidated. 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

But yes this could be a meme. Give me a month and I'll guarantee I can make this into a thing. See the case of the l'ananas. You don't get 6000 posts without the occasional shilling spam.

Good to have you back you scary son of a Curra.

I've been meaning to try a durian.  How bad can it be?

 

I should be done with the signs soon, so I will be back in the land of the living.

Also sea-salt french fries are a gimmick. Either that or the place where I got them is just really bad at making them.

That's sick.

 

That's also quite an amazingly old post you dug up. I was looking forward to a 300-page quote.

My phrase of choice for describing them goes as such - "a rotten undead hedgehog fetus smelling of rancid death"

 

Good time to come back. Page 600. Will have compilation up tomorrow.

I quite like that picture, Warren. I'll be quite sure to toe the line now. That's one chick I won't be trying to pick up.

I have often wished for that opportunity. I'd want to go back to freshman year of high school, knowing what I know now....everything after that point would change drastically!

Aww, so cute! :veryevil:

On the subject of foods, I'd been looking for some time for a place to get good Wagyu beef, or just consistent prime-grade beef in general, and I believe I finally found it.

http://www.marxfoods.com

Seriously, these guys are awesome. I picked up some of their different cuts for a big, game day cookout (we do this during football season), trying out what they had. We had:

Grass-fed New Zealand ribeyes & fillets,
Wagyu ribeyes, fillets, & strips,
and Bison ribeyes & fillets.

The Wagyu is advertised as "Kobe", it isn't Kobe. Sorry, the fat is not that buttery, but they are fantastic, and ~half what you'd pay for actual Kobe. Most wouldn't notice it, unless they were served side-by-side, but I did. Still, a great "value" (comparatively).

http://www.marxfoods.com/products/kobe-beef

The Bison was very good and a nice divergence from standard beef. It had a richer flavor without being "gamey". Some thought it wasn't quite tender enough, but I enjoyed. The criticism probably came from it having a lower fat content (less than half the fat of beef). If you want a high protein, low fat alternative, but still want a beefy texture, bison is the way to go.

http://www.marxfoods.com/products/bison

I saved the best for last. No, the NZ prime beef wasn't technically best, that goes to the Wagyu, but the value was really impressive. For the ribeyes, and these things are massive, weighing in at a colossal 24-26oz each, the price rang in at right at $18 /lb. For USDA prime, grass-fed beef, that's a steal. Especially when you consider that overnight shipping is included in the price. One steak is enough for 2 people, unless you're the size of an NFL lineman, and the texture and flavor are really exceptional. These get my highest recommendation.

http://www.marxfoods.com/Cowboy-Ribeye-Steaks?sc=2&category=9780

They truly blow anything from Omaha steaks and other such companies out of the water. It's local butcher shop cut and quality, at a lower price, delivered to your door. That's some meat that's tough to beat. Umm, figuratively speaking, of course.

This summer....

 

They were best of friends...

 

But after that day, it would never be the same again...

 

A battle of wits and wily, feline versus avian...

 

But only one can be the victor...

 

The blockbuster of the summer - Kill Warren Part 2 - Electric Boogaloo

In IMAX and 3D where available.
