Well, you need cheering up, and I need that mech suit, so... is it working? ;)

judging by the amount of drool I have to clean off my desk, yes.

wha? Only new yorkers ignore the things that make their area great as a sign of pride!

Seriously the city's greatest comic book store and rpg shop used to be on the same street with the empire state building. Didnt find that out for years upon years because we didnt bother looking up.

Not sure if Lynora's in a college town, but it sounds like it to me.
Yeppers. A2 has a lot of the same kind of energy as a larger city, but also all the trees! ( no, really, the last time I went on the Ferris wheel at the carnival I was struck by the way the town just disappears and looks like a forest from above) I love the balance of it, having all the cool stuff around, but also nature.

are you sure you don't live here?

You just described here.

There’s a reason why I loved New York the one time I visited, waaaay back when. :)
why didn't you call me?! Or did you have absolutely NO idea who I was at the time?

This was many, many years ago, before I even joined the Paizo boards :)

Not the kind that swore a lot. My dad was always pretty fond of classic metal - AC/DC, Metallica, Zeppelin, etc. - and he was the one to introduce me to the genre growing up, but we always bought the censored versions of albums.

Censored versions are NOT heavy metal.

I didn't even know you COULD buy censored versions of Led Zeppelin.

The Wal-Mart in the nearest city to the south central Texas town I grew up in always provided censored versions of any CDs with an advisory sticker. It was well into my college years before I learned some artists don't ever even release a non-explicit version of their albums.

wow.


That happened a lot in the late 80's into the early 2000's. You can thank Tipper Gore for that one.

I specifically looked for the albums that had the "Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics" labels rather than the ones that didn't have it.

And then I bought the t-shirt with the exact label proudly printed across my chest.

Fun fact: Wal-Mart likes to portray itself as family friendly and so insisted on artists making censored versions if they wanted to be carried at Wal-Mart.

Related fact: because of its size and the ubiquity with which its stores are positioned in rural America, being able to sell at Wal-Mart would frequently make the difference between having a non-seller and a gold record certification with appurtenant income.

End result: artists preemptively self-censored when writing lyrics or prepared radio edits of their songs so that they could be assured of being able to sell in Wal-Mart.

When I mention 2 Live Crew to my nephews they go - who? But they were pretty cutting edge with their lyrics at the time, but even they prepared tamer versions of their songs to cater to the Wal-Mart demands....which led to the Roy Orbison lawsuit.

Wal-Mart still does that with some things.

But seriously, don't forget Tipper Gore. There were Congressional hearings on this because of her.

I'm convinced the prospect of Tipper as First Lady was the real reason Gore lost his bid for the Presidency.

She was one of the reasons I didn't vote for Gore.

Okay, Eve is over her snit (I think it was killing the demon spider in the garage that did it) and made us all beignets for breakfast this morning, so life is better again. And she's talking about (a) maybe making them again before we leave, and (b) going to the farm stand nearby to get green tomatoes to fry for breakfast one morning.

Sometimes Eve's mood swings are a wonderful thing.

You're not wrong. Ambien knockoff.

My own comical (for observers) physical coordination and frightening (for other motorists) driving are bad enough when I'm stone-cold sober. I refuse to take the blame for anyone else operating under the effects of Amby PM.

Although, I could put a six-figure endorsement deal from a pharmaceutical manufacturer to very very good use especially now.

Shield spell vs Fritzy's Minute Meteorbikes:
While the Gore campaign was never a white-hot ball of excitement, never underestimate 1) Gore's incredibly stupid decision to publicly distance himself from the successes of Clinton's Presidency, and b) the "Joementum" 18-ton sh*tty boat anchor that is Joe Lieberman as a human being running mate.

Speaking of political hot-button issues and parental advice, do yourself and all your fellow travelers a favor, and for the first 2 years of your child’s life make your relatives come to YOU.

You need the money you’ll save, you’ll avoid the massive stress of taking a plane or train with a baby, and the people who don’t have to travel with you will be thankful.

(Yes, people have serious extenuating circumstances, but most of the travelers I’ve spoken to have just said, “Of course we’re taking him to see grandma! She’s too busy with her hiking and volunteer work to fly down to see us! What? Cheaper? What? Easier on everyone? Why hadn’t I thought of that?”)

I was thinking vs. Dubya, but, yeah, it would have been just as, or more, applicable back then. But no one really took him seriously in 88. Just another privileged white boy who thought rolling up his shirt sleeves for stump speeches made him look like a populist.

You know, the proto-Beto.

For many of the albums I had growing up, I didn't even know there were explicit lyrics or alternate versions, since the albums are only marked as such in their original version and the censored album is sticker- and emblem-free. As a result I tended to think of them as the default.

All the versions my family owned were censored, as were any that (rarely) happened to pop up on the radio, so imagine my surprise when I'm in my middle years of college and see Metallica's S&M album for the first time with an explicit lyrics sticker on it, despite that being easily my favorite album to listen to throughout the entirety of my high school years.

While we're talking controversy, spoilered for religion....

Spoiler:
TIL that the U.K. main theme from BSG contains the Gayatri Mantra, the popular chant of Hindu prayer and meditation:

Om Bhur Bhuvah Swaha,
Om Tat Savitur Varenyam
Bhargo Devasya Dhimahi,
Dhiyo Yo Nah Pracho Dayateh

Translation: We choose the Supreme Light of the divine Sun; we aspire that it may impel our minds

(~Ish. Sanskrit is a dead language, so there are many translations.)

(Ok there's nothing controversial about this, I just wanted to be edgy to fit in.)

As I think I’ve mentioned, my favorite-ever “explicit lyrics” label was on Alestorm’s “No Grave But the Sea (for dogs),” Nothing but barking dogs, but it got a label. How could they tell?

Work's been going alright aside from a few setbacks. My roommate wants to run a 2nd ed campaign for one of the tabletop groups we've formed, and the main one wants to try out Shadow of the Demon Lord once we finish our current run of Dark Heresy. It's funny how we've branched out from D&D to other tabletop games throughout the years. Been a while since we actually ran a Pathfinder game.
