    Why Twitter? 1:15 am-

    Why do people use Twitter? I don’t get it myself. I have a website. I have an instant messenger client. These two things seem to be the function of Twitter. What is the need for all of these different social networking websites? Because when you really break it down this is what Twitter is. How many of these place does the world need? There is Myspace, Facebook, and the countless others I don’t want to know about. To me it all comes back to replacing websites and im clients.

    When it comes to Twitter I don’t want to get it. I’m going to budge on this one. I let blog into my vocab. That is the last time I’m going to give in to this new internet lingo. I’m not going to be twittering or whatever the hell they call it. I am going to be a hypocrite though and use the Twitter Tools WordPress plugin to take advantage of what Twitter has to offer.  If it has anything to offer.

    Watching Watchmen 6:21 am-

    So me, my brother, and my dad are going to go see the Watchmen movie today. I have not been holding my breath. In fact I have been setting myself up for a major disappointment in what has been called an unfilmable comic book. There are two things that make me want to have hope that the movie will be good.

    1. the movie is set in the 80’s like the comic book
    2. the Rorschach character looks to be on the money

    Things I don’t like include the fact that the ending has been neutered. Because of 9/11 we can’t go showing New York City destroyed by a fake alien invasion. Why is it we have become such huge pussies since 9/11? Jesus it’s  a movie people. Bunch of god damn pussies. Also a minor nitpick but they wouldn’t let any of the good characters smoke. It’s perfectly fine for some of the bad guys to smoke. But not good guys. More pussy bullshit.

    And right now I’m saying that I will have a huge heart attack if Doctor Manhattan does not explode Rorschach into a mist of blood. Some things just have to be the same. Rorschach buying it is one of those things that to my mind can not be changed. Letting him survive would just be the final insult in the pussifcation of the movie. Sorry if I just spoiled the story to a twenty year old comic book.

    With any luck the movie will be really good and my setting myself up for it to fail will pay big when it does not suck.

    Don’t Watch Watchmen 3:26 am-

    Fuck Zach Synder ok? Here is a bit from the Watchmen movie Wikipedia entry:

    Moore adamantly opposed a film adaptation of his comic book, arguing, “You get people saying, ‘Oh, yes, Watchmen is very cinematic,’ when actually it’s not. It’s almost the exact opposite of cinematic.” Moore said that Terry Gilliam, preparing to direct Watchmen for Warner Bros. at the time, had asked Moore how the writer would film it. “I had to tell him that, frankly, I didn’t think it was filmable. I didn’t design it to show off the similarities between cinema and comics, which are there, but in my opinion are fairly unremarkable. It was designed to show off the things that comics could do that cinema and literature couldn’t.”

    Terry Gilliam did not make a Watchmen movie. Anyway who the fuck is Zack Snyder? A Dawn of the Dead remake and 300 are his credentials? Dude is unqualified to make Watchmen. Gilliam on the other had has made some good movies. And if anyone would have done it right it would have been him. I don’t think Terry Gilliam would have included Night Owl seeing Rorschach die. Or even worse upon seeing said death have Night Owl fall to his knees and raise his hands up and to scream into the night.

    Another thing that bugged me. In Snyder’s Watchmen the name of the superhero group is Watchmen. Hopefully in the director’s cut they say the superhero team name enough that one can make a drinking game around it. The changes this guy made to the ending also bothered me. Blaming it on Doctor Manhattan seems just a lazy way out. I’m sick to death of this 9/11 bullshit. Water down the ending just because something bad happened? It’s a good thing the Japanese are not such pussies or we would have never got any Godzilla movies.

    If you want to experience Watchmen read the comic. It’s how the creator Alan Moore wanted it. Or wait for someone with real talent to come along and do the source material justice.

    I’m no good at compiling top ten lists of anything. The topic of top ten movies was brought up by Gawain.

    [03:29] Gawain: My Top Ten Movies
    [03:33] Turk: damn it I hate this top ten shit
    [03:33] Gawain: hahahahaha
    [03:33] Turk: fuck off
    [03:33] Turk: V for Vendetta?
    [03:34] Gawain: yeah?
    [03:34] Turk: I did not know you fell down and hurt your head
    [03:34] Turk: go to the hospital right now
    [03:34] Gawain: that was a great movie. It wasn’t as good as the comic, but it was still awesome.
    [03:34] Turk: see thing is
    [03:35] Turk: either it is as good as the source material or it is shit
    [03:36] Gawain: pffft. thats not true. I think the comics of Spider-Man are better than the movies, but the movies are ok. same with Batman. “the stand” by Stephen King is a great book, and a pretty good movie, but its not as good as the book. its not shit though.
    [03:36] Turk: my world my rules
    [03:39] Turk: Leviathan?
    [03:39] Turk: Army Of Darkness?
    [03:39] Gawain: yup.
    [03:39] Turk: come on
    [03:39] Gawain: and yup.
    [03:39] Gawain: neither one are classics, but they are both great movies.
    [03:39] Turk: are you bleeding from your head wound?
    [03:39] Turk: apply pressure

    I would have said more if I had seen Unbreakable in his list.

    So far I only have a top 1 movie. Also the original Star Wars would have to be in there too. So my top 2. Added Raiders and Empire Strikes Back. So top 4.

    1. Casablanca
    2. The Empire Strikes Back
    3. Star Wars
    4. Raiders of the Lost Ark

    I will update my list as I think of it.

    Sci Fi Renames 5:47 am-

    Those assholes at the Sci Fi channel are changing their name.

    “We couldn’t own Sci Fi; it’s a genre,” said Bonnie Hammer, the former president of Sci Fi who became the president of NBC Universal Cable Entertainment and Universal Cable Productions. “But we can own Syfy.”

    They should be called the Shitty B-Movie Wrestling Channel. They have wrestling for fucks sake. I hope they fail and die some horrible death taken directly out of one of those shitty b-movies they show all the time.

    DnD 4E 5:24 am-

    So I’ve been listening to these DnD podcasts were the Penny Arcade guys play the new Dungeons and Dragons 4th Edition. The first episode is here and the rest you can find at the D&D podcast page. There is two series now of these guys playing the 4th Edition and it sounds like they are having a lot of fun. Slowly over the time I’ve listened to them all the desire to play 4E DnD has slowly been building up.

    I’ve ended up blowing a hundred bucks or so on the 3 core books the Player’s Handbook, the Dungeon Master’s Guide, and the Monster Manual last saturday. Since then I’ve also picked up a Dungeon Master’s Screen and a Level 1-3 adventure called Keep on the Shadowfell. I have dice from the last time I bought some DnD stuff when the 3rd Edition came out. Of course you can’t do anything with all of this without people to play with.

    So I of course started to talk it up to my 8 year old nephew. Who seemed to take a liking to how combat is played using the dice. His sister will play because she like doing stuff with us. I’m using the angle that she can be a Elf Princess or something to hook her in. Then it’s just having to convince the Newb to play. I had seemed to have him in up until the point I explained all the at will powers. The Newb played the old stuff back in high school and some of these new rules are hard for him to accept. I think it makes the game fun. I hope.

    Saturday I will unleash it all on them. After getting a few more suckers to volunteer. It all seems fitting for us all to play on saturday since it is the official Worldwide D&D Game Day saturday. It’s celebrating the release of the Player’s Handbook 2. This is going to be my first time running a game so I’m a little nervous. With any luck everyone will have a good time.

    Minor edit to add the new poll to the post:

    Do you play pen and paper role playing games?
