Quotable Quotes: The Obligatory Out-Of-Character Thread
« on: April 09, 2011, 12:24:27 PM »
Ah, yes, the ubiquitous out-of-character thread. I shouldn't have to explain the purpose of this thread, right?

Not that all that many will be using it.

But for those that wish to, feel free to leave a note!
The secret for harvesting from existence the greatest fruitfulness and the greatest enjoyment is to live dangerously.

I'm ever so indulged in the rich favor you've catered to me by allowing Ane to grow with the spring of an idea.

I promise to take good care of the trio in my creative endeavors. I look forward to the future for them all. Keep up the amazing work!

I remain an avid fan

Brilliant!  I also really like that song...and am totally not surprised to see it here.  :-)

[quote:3dc66c6a4e="Edward Batten"]Okay...simply for my own amusement (and the amusement of others as well), I'm creating a thread for the funny sh*t I see on a daily basis. Whether its just something funny from the Live RP Lobby, something I read in a post, or what I like to call the 'No-Sh*t Headlines,' feel free to stick it here.

Or you can just stick it. Whatever.[/quote]

So I'm re-dedicating this thread to both my Quotables and OOC Commentary/Guestbook thread.

And, of course, re-posting everything from the Quotables thread to this one, because for some reason there's no way to merge posts.

All in this one post.

[quote:3dc66c6a4e="Edward Batten"]And now, for the first funny thing to go in this post:

The Alpha Cologne Radio Spot

In particular, this part:

[quote:3dc66c6a4e="Harris"]Alpha, the new cologne by Harris, is chock full of so much manly goodness you?ll be shaving each morning with shuriken grenades! Comprised of lumberjack tears, whiskey, unicorn sweat, and gunpowder, this cologne will officially make you a man! And if you?re already one then it?ll make you two![/quote]

Seriously, if you're not laughing at this, go and shoot yourself, because there is no humor in your life.

Kudos to Harris for his sheer comedic genius. Ed's going to have to buy some just because that commercial rocked.[/quote]

[quote:3dc66c6a4e="Edward Batten"]First and foremost I wish to extend to all those that participated in last night's 2011 RhyDin Gubernatorial Debate my compliments on one of the best nights of live RP I've had since I started playing back when the Internet was still a relatively new thing (before AOL sunk their claws into it). I have to admit I was impressed with each and every one of the candidates (even the ones that conflicted with Ed's interests) for their answers and their interaction with each other and the audience. I can't remember the last time I enjoyed playing this much.

To the participating audience as well, of whom there are too many to mention, for the first point of there being no bullsh*t drama brought into the mix, some jerk supervillain crashing through the roof and killing someone (as I've read about happening elsewhere), or bomb threats. (The latter might have been fun as a storyline thing, if it were something thought out beforehand...but I digress.) Everyone, from Harris and Clover (and the candidates, and random people throughout the room) plugging Alpha cologne from the booth set up at the back, to Alain DeMuer (whose question set off probably the best and most interesting part of the debate), to Morana and her hosting/refereeing/question posing that kept everything in an understandable order, to Mr. Howe and his dropping in at the end to stir things up, and all you others I didn't mention, you all rocked!

And now - last, but certainly not least - I wanted to mention this post.

there's too much there for me to quote, though I will put in the portion that concerns me (vanity is such a great motivator!):

[quote:3dc66c6a4e="Mr. Howe"]Edward Batten ? You got some character there! Witty, quick and is that a Cajun accent? It sure does sound like it! Looking forward to playing more with you! Edward already has all the earmarks of being one of the powerful movers and shakers![/quote]

As a matter of fact that is a Cajun accent, and thank you for noticing! And for your compliments as well. I wanted to say in return that it's nice to see a villain for a change that can come into Live RP and not make a total mess of things for everyone else, and also it's awesome that you don't mind someone heckling your character without getting offended. I won't count the number of times I've played a character that's an a$$hole by their nature and have been told that (by association) I must be as bad as they are. (The fact that it may be true is beside the point.)

Anyway, going back to the post as a whole, it's not often (if ever) that I've seen someone taking the time to type out a compliment to so many others, and having been so inspired I encourage everyone to take a look at the post by clicking here.[/quote]

[quote:3dc66c6a4e="Edward Batten"]So I'm looking in the Rhy'din Post folder to see what goes on in the news today, and I see this article.

I love satire, especially well-written satire,

On a related note, this article is pretty funny too.[/quote]

And there you have it.

On another, more humorous note, check this out.

Okay, one more for you.

Seriously, folks, if you can't laugh at yourself, you have no sense of humor. Even Will Rogers agrees with that.

And without further ado, have yourself a laugh at my expense.

I just wanted to apologize for vanishing so abruptly last night to all those I was playing with. You can thank my boss for being a cheap bastard and relegating us to stay in a cheap motel without wifi, forcing me to rely on an unsecured connection nearby that appears to be a residence. Last night I'm thinking someone forgot to pay the bill, because I started getting Time Warner 'please pay your past due amount to restore your service' pages.

The problem seemed to be fixed this morning before I went to work, so I should be back around tonight.

Just wanted to stop in and thank you for posting in our OOC...  figured I would offer up the same.  And what do I find?  Lots of fun and kind words.  You as a player rock and your characters do too!  (ie. Ed and Dark Ranger)

But...  I have to ask... when do we get to see the other Heroes in action too?  I would be very interested in seeing them work as a team.  The friendship and cohesion of them as a collective is awesome reading.  (For those who aren't reading the stories on this board, you really should! There is an easiness shared between them that suggests long time friendships and stories yet to be told.)  

Back to the team thing, we really should set something up where all the Heroes have a chance to shine.  Maybe a post?  Since it may be inconvenient to get everyone on at once, it may be easier if we do it on the boards.  Just a suggestion... and besides, I have some new villains coming that need some opportunities to exercise their badness.  Heh.

Thanks... for everything!

Player of Howe and too many others to list

P.S. Sorry about your current access and cheap accommodations.  Hope you get home sooner rather than later!

Thank you, Ed, for disappearing, because I actually slept 5 full hours. ;P

I've been having a wonderful time.

So...back to business.

In regards to that, I would like to see it happen but haven't found a scenario where the presence of all three of them would be called for in the same place. Not to say it couldn't happen, it would just have to be something pretty big. I have no doubt in the weeks and months to come we'll have something happen along those lines, but it will definitely have to be done in post rather than live play.

I have thoroughly enjoyed the comic relief and such I ave seen thus far, especially as it pertains to me. Criticism, compliments, comments, or poking fun. (I draw the line at bashing, and have not a problem with deleting posts.)

And on a related note...

...wow. Just...wow.[/b]

Welcome back!!

Yeah, posts works for us too.  Figure it would have to be an EVENT to get the entire gang suited up and active.  Not too much of an issue with the introduction of COPE, they have the toys and the bodies to put on quite the show.  We should take a little time to work out details, PMs, IMs or emails as that will allow us to keep the details under wraps.  Heh, keep the audience on their toes that way.

Looking forward to the evil plotting!
Lanette

P.S. I never pay mind to the bashing, I would advise that no one should as it works against community building.  Delete it if you can, or ignore it if you can't and move on past it is my credo.  The goal behind FFRP is to have fun.  Whatever your fun is, it is your right to have it.

So, this is obviously a work in progress, but I wanted to get everyone's impressions, both of the concept and the name for this little trio.

Lemme know what ya think.
