    Huh, it looks surprisingly good. It's hard to find decent horror flicks, at least for me. Nothing really evokes fear in me and when you judge a horror film on everything else, they usually fall short of average.

    There are times when I question whether Gordon Ramsay is more about showmanship than cooking, but I have literally never tried one of his recipes that didn't turn out absolutely amazing

    Gotta hand it to the ol' Grumpy, he knows his stuff...

    If marketed and produced correctly, Bloodrayne can be a good franchise.

    Hello, nerds! Playing PoE made me all sentimental for the BoM so I decided to drop in. Can't believe it's been more than ten years, you know? This place accompanied me all throughout teenagehood. Nostalgic. It's weird, actually; I still talk to Aik and Eze on a semi-daily basis (though maybe those two names are far too old for all but the oldest of curmudgeons to remember).

    I dunno, just wanted to say hi. I guess my last post wasn't that long ago. I think I was in Okinawa then. Now I'm back in Taipei. Writing a couple articles, translating things here and there, with the long-term goal of going on a cruise ship to Europe. And then I have no idea.

    Annnd I'm out again.

    Stop dropping names, you're making me nostalgic for no good reason!

    Heh - hello, nerd!

    Name dropping only to be recognized by curmudgeons . . .

    I qualify!

    Oooh, let me drop more names! A few years ago I managed to meet Eze and 8people in the flesh when I visited England. Aik is now in Japan, and I met him there, too -- actually came to my house to stay for a bit. Slithy, Tiamat and Rotku I see doing stuff on Facebook sometimes.

    Such a weird connection, really.

    Also, I'm amazed to see we still have separate forums for SoA and ToB after, what, ten years? I guess some things never change.

    I hate you so much sometimes. :p

    I'm almost done with my first PoE playthrough. I didn't expect it to take me a week.

    Only a week or as long as a week?

    I'm not good with names, so I don't recognise all of them, though some of them were before my time, I think.

    A week is a long time by today's standards for me, but since that doesn't really put things into perspective, let me put it this way: It took me over 80 hours start to finish, taking it real slow.

    Tomorrow, our king will celebrate his birthday in my home town, Dordrecht, the oldest city in Holland (The province, mind you. Not The Netherlands). I live in the old city centre. A lot of people will walk past my home and so there are a lot of safety precautions being made. Some of the officials, though, are acting like GeStaPo scum. I live in an enclave right now, but at least it will look nice on telly.
    I'm probably coming across as a whining buzzkill right now, but I'm sure I'll be having fun tomorrow. :)

    Glad I was never near anything like that. Absolutely hate it when they do that kind of thing. Well, kings/queensday was never really a big thing for me, just something for other people to get drunk about.

    But only because you keep on changing the borders of Holland. Originally Gertrudenberg would beat Dordrecht by 7 years for gaining the cityrights as the oldest city of the County of Holland had it not been moved to Brabant :rolleyes:

    An there is a good reason for that. Geertruidenberg is a small town, more a village. But that not the reason since size does not matter.

    Sometimes I find it hard to believe that people like this spoiled little princess actually exist:

    You got that right, ConjurerDragon. It's the oldest city in nowadays Holland. Whether the city is oldest or not, doesn't really matter, though. I just used it to give an idea of what kind of city I live in. Streets are winding, cobbled and not too wide at some points. They will be cramped. And the quays along the ports and canals as well. Getting out of house and moving around in the neighbourhood will be a challenge, I guess.

    Good lord, Beren. That made me wanna tear her spine out through her eyesocket...

    People do, yes. I don't consider drunkards to be people.

    Holland as in Noord-Holland and Zuid-Holland together? I never knew. Not that it really matters, most of these old cities are little more than villages by any other standard.

    Got two question right during Sir Roterham's lecture in the chapel. He is the seneschal for the order of the round table and knighted one of those actors from Game of Thrones into the order.
