  1. Machinima need a better upload system, these wait times are obnoxious. I would be interested to know why they have such an issue, just how many videos do they get a day? How big is their staff? And I think I speak for us all when I commend Ross for his patience through all of this. Incidentally, Ross, do you get paid per video, or is it based on hits or something? If that's too personal for you to go into, I fully understand.
  2. Apparently, normally he doesn't pass a nuclear missile, a large radioactive leak, and nearly collide with a robot on his average commute. I'm guessing they were moving a bunch of stuff around that day in preparation for the test or for other reasons. As to him being high at the time, he does mention having a couple of shots of vodka for breakfast that morning, so he was likely slightly buzzed. Remember though, this whole series is just an off-the-cuff farce created yb our glorious host Ross, ergo to look for overmuch consistency in the narrative is the errand of a fool.
  3. His fondness for drugs is a pretty logical character aspect in my book, he talks about wanting to numb himself from the "politics" of his job, and he sounds like he's been a pill-popper since college, which is common.
  4. INCARNATED IN THE WRITHING FIGURE OF LUCIFRON'S BLACK PENIS, MY LIMITLESS, MERCILESS FURY WILL PENETRATE MACHINIMA'S EAR AND NOSEHOLES WITH THE SAVAGE ABANDON OF PURE AND UTTER HATE, RENDING FOUL FLESH IN A GLORIOUS RAPE-ORGY OF PAIN AND REGRET UNTIL EVERY VESTIGE OF THEIR SICKENING FORM IS ANNIHILATED BY THE BOILING ROPES OF BLOODY DEMON SEMEN THAT WILL SCAR THE EARTH. FROM THE FLESH OF THE RUINED, DEFILED CORPSE OF MACHINIMA, A RACE OF SKINLESS WOLVES THAT HOWL IN THE TONGUES OF LONG-DEAD GODS WILL ARISE, AND HOWL LAMENTATIONS OF MACHINIMA'S FAILURE AS TEN THOUSAND INKY-BLACK CROWS PECK OUR THE EYES OF STEVE JOBS.
  5. Freeman of Freeman's mind is a vaguely sociopathic genius-apparently he's always been a bit loopy, considering his references to having bizarre outbursts at his job. His eccentricities are tolerated because he's so good at what he does. He's kind of pathetic, if you think about it-friendless, self-absorbed, scatter-brained-but he's also surprisingly realistic. Anyone here ever met a very smart person in physics or engineering or computers? Some of them are intensely WEIRD. Hard to talk to. Anti-social, insular, cryptic, touchy people. Freeman is a product of narcissism and brilliance, a strutting, insecure, psychotic manchild. He is despicable. Absurd. Broken. And hilarious.
  6. Machinima's backlog is self-created, they should really try to create a more distributed network style dissemination system, they kind of already do it, but more so. Like have a Machinima Source page fior loading Source-engine movies, etc.
  7. Frosted mountains, stained with gore Skyrim's sons on march to war Dragons soar and cities burn as ages die, as seasons turn Against the terrors of this doom, a figure stalks from midst the gloom His name is shadowed, his aim is clear to stop the dragon god of fear Against the dragons you will fight From ageless night to morning light You'll scream in tongues of beast and man, and fight to save this blighted land. Stand up strong, be not forlorn Live, and die, as DRAGONBORN!
  8. Capitalism has the unfortunate habit of encouraging the practice of externalization of negative consequences-we see this in the often sociopathic aspects of modern businesses, who dump toxic waste in Africa or into the ocean, and who have stalled efforts to reduce carbon emissions by citing negative economic effects, even as rising ocean levels and worsened storms threaten millions in low coastal areas. Capitalism enshrines a type of thoughtless greed and materialism that has caused us to live beyond our means, and that has gotten us used to doing so even as exploitative business practices keep millions of people in near slavery, working in dingy factories for criminally low wages, allowing the corporations that maintain the factories to make higher levels of profits. We have built a world that is grotesque, where the majority are worked and oppressed to produce cheap goods for a powerful minority. The USA is a parasitic entity, a drain on resources that has proven by its international conduct to be a bullying and murderous aberration. The sooner the internal contradictions of its debt-ridden, financialized state capitalist system explosively fail, the better. My hope is that this can happen without the rise of some psychotic new nationalist movement within our husk.
  9. To get an idea of what I think, look at the ideaology and practice of communism in Nepal-they had a revolution, threw out a monarch, and now they have multi-party democracy, free-speech, power sharing agreements etc. The transition may very well involve protracted, bloody, and at times quite merciless war. Revolution is not a dinner party. But neither should it become a blood bath, or the playground of power-mad dictators like Pol Pot. The working class must have authentic democratic power over the means of production, only then, after we have become conscious of our collective destiny, can we create, not a perfect world, not a utopia, but a better world,a world that isn't fundamentally unsound in its policy and in the attitudes it creates. We can find the thing this species so lacks-balance.
  10. That was fucking sick bro. You should rewrite the whole poem sometime like that.

  12. Non-alcoholic would be NOS Loaded Cherry, those things are absolutely delicious. Alcoholic, hmmmmm, a good margarita or a shot of strong smooth vodka.

    It is a terrible, terrible website to come across if you have a deadline. The hours I've wasted....
  14. We are currently still reeling from the effects of our economic collapse, issues from global warming are going to be getting steadily more serious, as we saw from the floods in Pakistan recently, oil issues will no doubt start cropping up more and more....this is the thing, these issues aren't occurring in isolation, they feed off of each other, they have mounting effects What are some of the more worrying interactions between the severe potential crises we face? Take food issues-flooding or droughts could combine with higher fuel prices to effect starvation and war in poor areas of Africa, leaning to a disruption in oil supplies that effects the stock market.
  15. I voted for communism. The way I see it, the entire way people currently structure their relationship to each other nad the world is one of the main reasons that the world is so messed up these days. We do not think in the long-term, and we allow our silly ideas of nationalism to control us. Capitalism is powerful, but it lacks the ability to effectively prevent itself from corrupting and going crazy with weird financial schemes and the destruction of the environment and burning up resources at a craaaaaaaaaazy rate. We need people to start thinking and working together to confront the issues of inequality and resources in a way the prioritizes the needs of human beings over the profits of corporations, to that end, the democratic will of the working class should be represented across the world by a united political movement that usurps all governments, either via elections or by revolutions, and begins the long, slow task of creating a world that offers opportunity and freedom for all, both on paper and in practice, rather than a system that sets up and reinforces inequalities as the current system does. For the record, not an authoritarian, don't want a single-party state, don't want censorship, want freedom of religion, etc.
