Topics I've Started

Chris Conley - Georga - WR/Film Maker?

27 February 2015 - 02:18 PM

So I saw on SI.com that he was one of the five players who will play better in the NFL versus college.  I'm not a scout, I don't know much in general, BUT this guy did write and direct a Star Wars fan movie.  For a student project, it's pretty neat.

 

 

Sure he was a workout warrior in Indy, and had a kind of unspectacular career with the Bulldogs.  He was kept on the bench early on by the amazing Tavares King!  This guy could be a real steal who can jump high!  Run Fast!  Make Movies about Star Wars!

 

Football notes on him include being great in straight lines, but terrible changing direction.  He was a SEC Scholar Athlete of the Year.  

 

I thought this might be fun.  Would you want a straight line fast football player who likes Star Wars?  I sure would!  5th round!


Internet Decorum

Is this something you're in favor of or against?

 

Thanks to the marvels of the current internet, we have the incredible ability to say and read exactly what we want.  We can close our selves up from things that we don't like, and we can say whatever we want in a fairly closed loop.  Sometimes though, we break out of our self imposed isolation to read and interact through other people online, and that's when things get ugly.

 

From facebook to twitter to random comments on articles, it seems like a lot of people have lost the ability to disagree with other respectfully and effectively argue.  I am a bit of a forum/comment junkie admittedly, and I read a lot of stuff that make me laugh and worry at the same time.  Like when folks write an article that expresses a Tinderbox kind of issue and opinion, and the responses very quickly go downhill fast.  

 

From meaningful and insightful critiques (rare) into the name calling and judgments (most of the time), it looks to me like we have fostered a netiquette of being giant douche bags.  This also seems to manifest itself in the "real world" just as quickly and of a similar quality.

 

Do y'all think we need to make are more conscious decision to be respectful of others opinions online (aside from our lovely tinderbox), or should we simply allow the trolls to continue to troll people in both online forums and real life (gamergate and SWATting)?  Is there a possible solution to internet douche-baggery?

 

I'm curious.  I didn't want this to descend into immediate name calling so I did not post this in the tinderbox.  If the mods feel that there is a better place for this kind of discussion, then I understand.


Well Halo 5 will be here....in 2015!

So MS just announced Halo 5: Guardians and showed off some possible cover art:

That being said, some Halo purists will decry the continue pillaging of a game they adore.  Others who hate Halo for being Halo will continue to do so.  Then there are the weird people like me (and many others I assume since they keep making Halo games) that love the Halo universe, story and gameplay.  Yep, I'm a strange fish all right.

 

So, There's a female spartan with a battle rifle on the top image while the Chief is mirrored below.  Considering the blue glow from her visor...is this Cortana?  Hrm...  Who knows?

 

Some of y'all will have even more cool stuff I'm sure.  Or others of you will take the chance to say I'm such a moron for liking Halo past CE (or Marathon if you're a hipster =P).

 

Love you guys!
