    • Austin here we come!

      Kezz21

      It's official. We have booked our honeymoon to Austin. I can't remember the last time I was this excited.


      Not only will we be attending RTX but we'll be in town for the 4th of July too.

      If anyone has suggestions for stuff to do let me know and I'll add it to my ever growing list.


      Oh, and did I mention we're going to be staying in a badass 1977 Airstream?

    • Game On! Update. How Cool is This!

      I can't believe this. Game developers Boneloaf have donated 2 free steam keys for our 24hr live stream. How cool is that. Thanks Boneloaf, you guys are awesome.

    • Game On! Update. We are now Team Stoopid?

      6 months ago

      Kezz21

      So we're signed up. Myself, IceNinja46, Pawi, Agenu and OverZealot are now officially Team Stoopid! So far, we've made just over £100 in donations for Cancer Reasearch UK. This has mainly been through family and friends supporting us. But, we're gearing up for the main event. Our first ever 24hr live stream (good grief, what have we gotten ourselves into?)


      I love this community and it's power when it matters. Even if it's something that doesn't affect us directly. I donate to Extra Life every year and tell people about it all year round. 


      So, while I'm not asking for money, I'm asking for support. 


      If you have the time to share this, mod it, like it, shout at people in the street about it (well maybe not shout, but politely inform) I will be eternally grateful and, if we ever cross paths, I'l buy you a drink.


      Also, we need suggestions for stretch goals. I've already commited to wearing my Yang cosplay costume for the full 24h. Pawi is very close to getting shaved (we're just not sure where yet). But we need more. Don't hold back gang, I'm sure one of us will be up for whatever your twisted little minds can come up with (no guns or tazers please, we are in Scotand).


      We also need some game suggestions. Boneloaf have very kindly given us a copy of Gang Beasts which I am personally very happy about. IceNinja46 is determined to get me into a racing chair to do some racing stuff. Agenu will definately be looking for some FPS action. I'm pretty sure Pawi just wants to mount his friends and OverZealot either wants to prance around in a cutesy platformer or stick his dick in another dick that's already stuck in another dick.........


      Anyway, as gamers we have varied but simiar tastes so, a little help organising this rabble please?

    • Thi is my life now!

      I never got on the Pokémon bus. I guess I was at that age where I was just a bit too old for it. I never had the cards, didn't watch the cartoon or play the videogames and I didn't bother with Pokémon Go because, well, my phone's a piece of shit.

      However, I do play Minecraft, a lot of Minecraft, seriously dude I play so much Minecraft. So when I watched Achievement Hunter do a Let's Play in Pixelmon I thought I'd check it out. Well, fuck me that game is fun, I mean so much fun.

      Twenty hours in and I had 26 different Poké-mans including a level fucking 50 Charizard that I could ride. I mean I could jump on his back and ride him. I basically had a dragon that I could fly around on, I mean, that's the dream right?. Game updates and bam, it deletes my five highest level Poké-men and doubles up my 5 lowest level ones (Charizard NOOOOOOooooo!).

      So I start over and, five hours in, with a pocket full of Pokéballs and my level 15 Charmander running happily alongside me about to burn the life out of some weird bug looking thing that I forget the name of, and bam, laptop crashes, game updates and he's not there, he's just gone (Charmander NOOOOOOooooo!).

      I'm a Poké-less Poké-trainer in a Poké-wold that's very Poké-centric. I'm so mad, I can't remember the last time I was this mad about anything.

      So this is my life, thirty three years old and restarting a Pokémon Minecraft game for the third damn time and being so mad that I have to rant about it on the internet. I think I'm going out of my damn Poké-mind.

    • MDB Baby!!!

      Kezz21

      Yay! MDB expansion pack and coin arrived today and you know what that means. Bottle of tequila, a flip of the coin to see who starts and let the chaos begin (I wonder if I can call in sick for work tomorrow).

    • Lazer Team Baby!!!

      1 year ago

      Kezz21

      First off, I want to apologise for my epic failure to organise a proper meet up for the Paisley screening.


      Having said that, here's how my day went....


      We left way too early. It would be a one hour drive if there were no other cars on the road and we hit every green light on the way (although, the latter proved accurate), also, we had dinner reservations for 5pm.


      We park up at the theatre, which is on Griffen Avenue, which made me smile cause, you know, Griffen, and there's nothing. There isn't a flyer or a poster anywhere. The words Lazer and Team are nowhere to be seen in or around this place. So, being a slightly paranoid person, I start to get paranoid. 'Are we in the right place? Is there another theatre on a different Griffen Avenue? Am I still going to get to eat?'. All these potentially life changing questions and more ran through my head as we approached the bored official looking dude at the desk.


      We show him our tickets and he gives us a quizzical look then looks down at the monitor in front of him. He shakes his head and hands the tickets back to us, 'There's nothing here for today but we have screenings next Wednesday. Wait here a second'. He gets on his radio then tells us someone's coming down to talk to us. While waiting for this person who may or may not be about to crush my dreams, the guy behind the desk say 'Lazer Team huh? Is that by the Halo guys?', So THAT was a conversation.


      Having received confirmation of the screening from a very nice woman who was looking at us like we were lunatics because we'd shown up 3 hours early for a movie she's probably never heard of, we headed over to the Bobbin Inn, which is on Saturn Avenue, which made me smile cause, you know, space.


      We're met at the door by a guy who tells us the reason they have no record of our reservation is because they only check the online bookings in the morning. Huh?? Luckily the place was deader than a kitten caught in Geoff's headlights so, no problem getting a table. The same guy then comes over to us and says 'Can I just say, that's an awesome t-shirt.', which has never happened to me before, so that was cool.


      After applying an 8 ounce steak with chipotle BBQ sauce to my face we chilled in the bar for a bit then toddled on over to the theatre and joined the coolest looking queue I've ever seen. Even the fact that my genius fiancé got Minstrels instead of M&Ms couldn't dampen my excitement (but seriously Gary, Minstrels?)


      Then we're in our seats. Six rows from the front. The queue from the lobby has amassed into a beautiful crowd buzzing with anticipation behind us so, naturally, it's picture time. As I stand up and turn to take the picture, there's hands in the air and cheers, then I accidentally take a picture of the floor. Second epic fail of the evening.


      Then it happened. Lazer Team. Enough said.


      And since I don't have to work tomorrow, I'm going to curl up on the couch with a rum and pink Lucozade and a slice of chocolate cherry cheesecake and watch it the hell again.


      Shout outs; SazaGee, RossMacMilla, Vanellus85, jackmcgruer, MrFubbyFubby, the guy in the bar wearing the Nice Dynamite shirt, the American guy behind us in the queue, the dude playing the piano in the lobby after the film.

      Hey gang. Anyone going to the Tugg screening in Paisley?

      I thought it might be cool to meet up before or after for a little community get together, maybe have some bevs (maybe film an AWHU?).

      RT's been a part of my life for so long and yet I've only met 5 other community members in person.

      This is the time, this is our chance. Let's make it the giant awesome thing that it should be.

    • Perspective of disappointment!

      3 years ago

      Kezz21

      Well it's official, I won't be able to get time off work for MCM Scotland. I got the dates mixed up and my manager got in there before me to book time off. I probably should have double checked before I spent a small fortune on a Yang costume, but on the plus side, now I have a Yang costume.

      Sticking with the plus side of things, I can't complain too much about missing this one event. I should be able to get through to Glasgow in the evening for bevs with the gang from RvB:Scotland, I will definitely be there for the RvB:Scotland 1 year anniversary event, I just got offered a promotion and raise in a job I've been doing for just 6 weeks, I was accepted for a volunteer position that I really wanted and, best of all, my Blue Army shirt arrived today. Four weeks to the day since I ordered it (I'm not gonna lie, I was getting worried).

      So all in all, this one small disappointment pales in comparison to what has been a pretty positive and eventful week, and it's only Wednesday.

      P.S Apologies if the links don't work. I'm still getting the hang of things.

        Dude, I am officially setting up camp in the loop. I've been looking at gamer events and venues in Edinburgh and researching cosplay ideas for MCM. Today was one of the best days I've had in such a long time and it was awesome to be able to share it with such a cool group of new people.

        The feeling was mutual, I really enjoyed your company. Stay in the loop for future events as it'd be fun to hang out for a bit longer next time. I really do love everyone that came out, they're such a great bunch of people.

        Sweet. That's added to my highlights of the day list for today. I stopped all my facebook friends at 69, you know, just because. I tried to do it at 42, but I'm just so darned popular (plus most of my friends don't get that joke)

      Hey :)

        That's why I'm the sneaky creeper^^ I was lucky enough that my father loves Terry Pratchett too and he bought all of his books, calenders, etc. and most of the original artwork and since that was quite a few years ago it's still all of the older artwork. Of course the newer books all look kind of modern but it's worth it since I have one big shelf with oldschool TP stuff :)
        I don't know if you have those where you live, but here there are tons of "antique" bookshops in which you can find anything you could dream of. They still sell older copies of about every book that ever existed.

        Thanks, I love me too. :)
        I absolutely adore Terry Pratchett. I've been building my Disc World collection for a few years now. I know I could get them all on Amazon but I don't really like the new covers and it's a bit more difficult (and expensive) to find decent copies with the original artwork (yes, I am that nerdy about it). I tried being a forum creeper too but people don't like it when you go on and just type 'sssssss BOOM'.

      • leiacorn

        Ah, you know... being a little bit of a forum creeper. Nothing unusual. Btw I couldn't help but notice that you read Terry Pratchett. I hereby officially declare that I love you =) (I'm just one of these unlucky people who never meet fellow Discworlders)

        Hey, sorry for not getting back to you. I Missed the notification somehow (what was I saying about being a noob) So how's your first week on the Community been? Also, yes, yes I am scary. It's been said before (insert evil laugh here)

        (If I knew how to edit my comments I'd correct my typo but I don't, so I suck.

      • leiacorn

        3 years ago

        You... you are scary. I've done the exact same thing for the past few weeks now (especially since the yt community sucks and their comments make me sick). So cheers and nice to meet you to :)

        Hey yourself. I read your message on the introduction forum and I can totally relate. I've been a fan for over a decade but I I only joined the website a month ago. For the last few weeks (in between life and other stuff) I've been staring at my RT page with my finger hovering over the post button thinking 'should I?' and the answer is absolutely yes. This community is like nothing else on the internet because it's just that, a community. So here's to us, the (sort of) noobs. Nice to meet you leiacorn. :P
