I'd like to be off-topic, but I seldom am. Stepping in this forum is overwhelming to a librarian like me. I want to categorize and organize it, but I can't!!!!

So, I am going to treat this like a foreign country where I'm unsure of the rules and etiquette. Where would you advise I start? Do I just dive in, randomly? Do I lurk for a month or two, learning the language?

What do you advise?
Hmm

FaWtL is a must, especially if you want to survive the emotionally charged sparkly teenage vampire zombie apocalypse.

Or even if you just need pleasant place to get away from rules and politics.

Hmmmmmmmmmmmm...I can't help you.

There are alot of *Ask x all of your questions* threads.

Some are where we can ask Pazio staff members questions. Others are just forum members who are funny and/or knowledgeable, like Rysk's, Tacticslion, and mine own.

Just be clear not all of threads are people who work for Paizo.

Also if anything goes wrong with your go over to the *Blame Cosmo for all of your problems here* thread and do so. It is traditional.

Indeed it does, created by the immortal IsaacX who had a vision, a vision of... something.

There has since been many other incarnations as the forum has expanded, we're currently on the sixth.

There are rules, but they're simple
1) No sports
2) No politics
3) Be excellent to each other
4) The top poster on every page is naked

Hello again, Hmm! You should totally come to the politics threads. Everyone loves politics, amirite, guys?


2 people marked this as a favorite.

Yes! And Joss Whedon, you can't get too much Joss Whedon!


2 people marked this as a favorite.

I love watching videos of Joss Whedon talking about politics.

Hey, you're the reason I couldn't do the underscore Imposter! And joke thief!

There are entirely too many Captain Yesterday's here.

I'm washing my hands of the whole situation.

Tis a silly place.

Oh dear... This is a silly place? EEEeeeek!

I might have to share my very silly filks if that is the case.

Hmm

Yes, you should :)

If it helps, try cataloguing the Captain's aliases. Or perhaps that way lies only madness and despair.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Madness maybe, but hopefully not despair.

It's pretty easy though
A) aliases that start or end with captain yesterday
B) aliases based off of television or cinema
C) aliases based on Thegreenyarngamer (he started it!)
D) aliases based on characters
E) aliases based on deities
F) aliases based on my complex relationship with seasons in the Midwest
G) Other.

Naw, I've courted madness. Cataloguing Captain Yesterday's Aliases does not count.

Psychics and mesmers who play with your head
Clerics of Lamashtu who just want you dead
Vespergaunts, Allips and Seugathi too
These all can inflict madness on you

Aldori swordlords with political games
Your childhood bullies calling you names
The dark asylum on Carrion Hill
Where they do things to mess with your will

O what fun is there to be had
When we list the ways you can go mad
When bad news hits
Then you lose your wits
There's no time to be sad...
Just simply remember these horrible things
And say your brain's gone bad!

Perhaps you've been kidnapped by orderly thugs
Forcing injections of psychotropic drugs
As the weeks wear on they'll make an art
Of pulling your sanity slowly apart

Say you're a leader of an outlaw band
The heroes have foiled all that you've planned
You know that they're coming to murder you
O what else is the Staglord going to do?

O what fun is there to be had
When we list the ways you can go mad
When bad news hits
Then you lose your wits
There's no time to be sad...
Just simply remember these horrible things
And say that your brain's gone bad!

Well, that's good. Because it's your fault I am here!

You were the one who noted I have thousands of posts in the PFS forums, but that you've hardly seen me anywhere else. I decided it was time to visit a few other places in the forums, and see what they were like.

Hmm

See here you are all ready breaking the rules of Off Topic.

Here are the rule.

1) You do not talk about Off Topic.

2) YOU DO NOT TALK ABOUT OFF TOPIC!

And the rule you broke...

3) if any goes wrong you Blame Cosmo for it.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Best advice I can give: Don't take anything personally.

Also, always assume the possibility of intended (but unclear due to lack of voice tone) sarcasm.

Otherwise, happy participation.

Off Topic is easy. You just give your two coins to the ferryman, and then enjoy the ride down. Sorry about all the sulfur and brimstone, but you get used to it after a while.

TIME TO RETURN THE FAVOR:

Died in Your Arms Tonight

Baby Come Back

More than a Feeling

Everybody Wants to Rule the World

It's Raining Again (I don't actually remember this one, but, hey, it's lumped with the others by YouTube, so why not)

True (same caveat as above)

If You Leave Me Now

Back at you, but live

Waiting for a Girl Like You

Of course, only the very best, with Africa

Erasure, Always, er, I mean, Always, i.e. it will never leave

And at last, my final entry for this musical barrage. Its sweet melodies will grant you inner peace.

Since everyone else is spreading music, Here's my son's favorite song.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Hey!

Okay!

So... my YouTube suggestions!

(These are the things YouTube thinks I must listen to, or else will not be complete.)

(I have not watched all the videos, and - as noted below - have only listened to some of the songs.)

Sleep Dealer - Nozomi (Hope)
Diary Of Dreams - She And Her Darkness (Subtitulada)
Diary of Dreams - The Valley (Subtitulada)
Diary Of Dreams - Mask Of Shame (Subtitulada) (not really listened to the whole thing, yet)
VNV Nation - Illusion (Subtitulada)
Steampunk & Victorian Era Music Collection | 2-Hour Epic Mix (Has it been two hours since my last post? No; hence not enough time. Sorry. Getting to it.)
Data & Picard | Pogo (I think this may be the only one he actually appears in?)
Hercules : Zero to Hero | Oh My Disney | Side by Side
Viking nordic song Herr Manneling & Yggdrasil (missed the very end, as I was putting my son to bed)
Medieval Music - 'Hardcore' Party Mix (definitely have not had time to listen past the first minute or two; fun so far, though)
Gregory and the Hawk - Moenie and Kitchi (Full Album) (not yet had the chance to listen to the whole thing)
CAN'T STOP THE FEELING! & Huge Announcement :) (Peter Hollens)

... yeah, that sounds about right.

It's missing an important before and after combo, though.

There we are. Combined with the above, it's pretty solid for now.

(I mean, it has no hard rock, or emo-or-whatever-the-Cranberries-and-Evanescence-and-Blurry-and-such are, or really good villain songs or awesome expressly Christian music... but it'll do for now.) :D

EDIT: Also, not on YouTube, but this is amazing and needs to be heard. So good.

I am ashamed and abashed that you didn't give her the runaround for at least 10 posts before being serious! For shame, sir, for shame!

There's also the schismatic FaWtl thread known as the The Monkey's Treefort. Not as fast paced as FaWtl, more of the old-school posters. /shameless plug

I have still not actually caught up on that. I need to read that from the beginning still. Because I can.

(Shut it. I totally still can. Someday. >.<)

(DAGGUMMIT. YOU HAVE ME LISTENG TO POGO. I HAD STUFF I NEEDED TO DO TODAY.)

EDIT: I choose to blame you for this, Sharoth.

Dang it.

(I mean, it's not your fault, but I'm totally blaming you anyway.) :D
