Rag, I think due to your Alaskan roots, you might have to suffer a bit of loss on asking price, not saying you should bend over, just try a little lower selling price. For instance your Hummer chassis, instead of 75 plus shipping, do something like $90 shipping included. I have no idea how much shipping would be. I know I shipped a complete hummer with shell and all to Washington for roughy 12 bucks first class. So it might cost you $25 for shipping your still making 60 off the hummer. Also just put a big disclaimer at the top reminding people you are in Alaska and shipping will be almost like international. Just some outloud thoughts for ya.

It's the kind of thing I ask my younger nieces and nephews when they give me an "I don't know" answer. One of those rhetorical questions that a curmudgeonly old uncle asks. :)

Like I said, my tactics were flawed. :blush: One thing I'd certainly do differently would be taking more, or at least better, pictures (this is predicated on getting my camera back). Normally shipping from AK isn't much different than other parts of the US - it's shipping TO AK where I take it up the whatsit. I was careful on S&H quotes the other stuff, but I don't think I was on the TA's. Originally I had interest from someone that wanted both, and they were going international, but things change, so I halved the shipping and reduced it further when I did my public BST listing which was still probably high. $15 domestically would probably have been better.

I'll try again Thursday. :thinking:

I'd guess that I learned about Ragnarök before you were born. Read the Poetic Edda to get the whole story. The Germans had a similar thing called Götterdämmerung. It was the final part of Wagner's Der Ring des Nibelungen, an opera that heavily plagiarized The Volsungs.

No, not that one. This one is from "Lisa's Wedding" and she gets her cards read. She first gets a death card(I already have a big one on my other arm) then she gets the happy squirrel. So my two tattoos kind of play off each other, plus immortalize the Simpsons on my body.

Brittany Murphy would actually have been a better pick as far as character, not so much for, ahem, shape. Brittany was too much of a waif. Megan is a little scrawny herself. Harley won't be in it anyway 'cause they've announced the Joker won't be in 3. There were rumors of Megantron playing Cat Woman. For the love of mud, they better not even try that character. Although, they did foreshadow it in DK when Lucious is showing Wuce Bane his new Batsuit.

Where have you been dude? This is Megan Hater Central. :lol: You should read my rant about her in my TF2 review earlier in this thread. As undeniably hot as she is, she's an annoying actress and reportedly loathsome as a person. Nice to look at, terrible to watch. Granted, she was only hired as eye-candy for the TF movies. She might be capable of pulling off a good role somewhere; there's always a first time for everything. We just haven't seen it yet. Case in point: Liv Tyler. She was the "bait" for Armageddon, another mBay film, and as pathetic as her part was (and the movie in general) she's actually a decent actress given the right part and director. Same with Scarlett Johansen in The Island - that ripoff of Parts: The Clonus Horror.

Not sure. I probably have others, but I liked the one where Homer takes over law enforcement with his private cop operation "Springshield." It was a High Noon parody. Another good one was "Angry Dad." The one where Crabapple and Skinner fall in love, "It's a Mad Mad Marge," the one where Otto lives with the Simpsons after he's been fired (it had Spinal Tap in it), the one where Lisa think's she's becoming stupid, "Bart's Comet," "Viva Ned Flanders." You'll have to excuse me because I either don't remember or don't know some of the titles to a lot of these.

Actually, I think my absolute favorite one is where Homer is hired by the best boss in the world who happens to also be an international super villain, Hank Scorpio. That one is definitely my favorite episode.

Yes! "Mr. Scorpion" is from "You only move twice". In my DVD player right now as a matter of fact. Viva Ned Flanders is one of my favorites as well. Good taste in Simpsons sir.

Ragnarok
06-08-2010, 08:44 PM
I only cited that scene because when she slams her forehead against the steering wheel and acts all emotionalisticy you see her thumb pretty well. I wouldn't hold that against her. There are far bigger issues with her than just the look of her appendages. :lol:

I decided a while ago that I actually prefer Futurama to The Simpsons. There was a point here in the last six or seven years where it became apparent that The Simpsons is just trying too hard, or something. It's not that they still don't make good shows, but in any given season after about 12 there's maybe two or three that aren't painfully insipid. One that about killed my love of the show was where Marge gets into bodybuilding. Where the hell did that come from? Or the one where Homer goes queer (almost). They wasted a perfectly good cameo from Weird Al Yankovic on THAT EPISODE. It was pathetic.

I only cited that scene because when she slams her forehead against the steering wheel and acts all emotionalisticy you see her thumb pretty well. I wouldn't hold that against her.

That went over my head since I ain't seen it. I'll hold it against her to make me feel better about myself.:kick:


Like I said earlier, I pretend the movie never happened. Also, the new episodes are full of even more contradictions than ever before. It's just bad these days. I still watch it because I feel I have to for some odd reason.

I feel the same way. I hated the film probably worse than I've ever hated a film…except maybe Avatar. I think that having Bart flash his wiener to the audience was one of the producers or writers flaunting his own pedo-tenencies. I expect that if they do a second one they'll have full-frontal on Marge.

Another thing that tweaked my beak was President Schwarzenegger. All he was was Ranier Wolfcastle with brown hair. Why not get the real Arnie instead of Mr. Shearer doing President McBain? :rolleyes:

Thirdly, their representation of Alaska was politically, industrially and geographically WRONG. Our oil wells look nothing like the dinosaur derricks of California, and there are no trees in Nome - absofreakinglutely none! No mountains there, either. And the natives they showed were more like the super-far-Southeast Indians, like the Tlingit and Haida, not Yupik or Inupiat Eskimos. Our Permanent Fund Dividend payouts are the result of what is ultimately a royalty as it is we, as defined by our state constitution, that own that oil AND you gotta physically live here as a full-blown resident for more than nine months to qualify for it. It's what happens when Californicators try to tell about places they've never seen, let alone understand.

I haven't watched any new shows for about six years, so I haven't seen how they've changed the opening sequence. Might be on YT. I'll go check.

Yeah, that's new to me. They've essentially redrawn/reanimated the "old" opening with some new little gags (Abe in the car, Otto swallowing the glowing rod, etc.), which in and of itself isn't so bad. My complaint, other than the style being that of the movie, is the couch gag is too long. I'm sure it's designed to cut down on the program's overall time.

Here is why you have not seen my on the board too much lately. I have been...working...a lot.
This is a filter pod trailer that I designed. We actually bought the trailer that was built to out specs, and installed the customer supplied filters. Everything else we fabricated in house.

The filter trailers are used for gas well fracturing. Service companies need to pump water down the wells and rather than drilling water wells everywhere they go, the will buy pond water from land owners. This filter trailer will keep the fish, frogs, and sticks out of the pump trucks. The water that is collected, is stored in some larger tanks that are pulled behind semis and taken to the location. This water is then mixed with some stuff and is pumped down the well creating voids in the ground. This mixture is actually pumped though trailers like the blue one shown on the bottom. Anyway, once they create the voids, they suck the water back out of the well leaving only the mix and this allows more gas to flow out. The water is re-used again and again.


I hope this makes sense.

No. Just no. The only compelling aspect of that abomination was its visuals, and even those I question, since they only existed to make an attempt to save the pathetic, uninspired, an unoriginal plot. Avatar gangraped the plots from Dances with Wolves and Last of the Mohicans, shivved the look of Halo, and designed their Space Sioux after a combination of Smurfs, Thundercats and Maasai tribesmen. FOR CRAPPING OUT LOUD, they even FREAKING got WES STUDI to voice THE LEAD "mystic/wise/sometimes-it's-hard-to-know-what-to-do" chieftain (or whatever the FREAKING HELL they called their leader). He's an awesome actor, but this was lowering himself to parodying his own previous work.

It was freakishly anti-human, and **** it all, I'M SICK AND ****ING TIRED OF THE RAMPANT SELF-LOATHING, SELF-INCRIMINATING GUILT-GASMS FROM ****ING HOLLYWOOD! How about celebrating humanity? How about focusing on the divine purpose we have? How about transcendental thought instead of the "we're all so evil and we need to feel guilty for things we didn't do and we should just all die" flotsam of repugnance that vomits from every pore of the entertainment industry into an ever-growing ocean of putrid filth.

Not hating on you - just the movie, James Cameron and 99.9% of the movie/TV/entertainment industry as a (gaping) whole. [sic] :nice:


I've heard that D9 is good, but haven't seen it myself so I have no opinion. :nice: And, yes, Modo is awesome. I'd like to own it eventually.


The only Miyazaki film I liked really well was Princess Mononoke. Gillian Andersen's zombie-like voice acting almost killed it, but the rest of the English-speaking voice actors did a great job. Studio Ghibli was the animation studio behind the second Ghost in the Shell. Bizarre, yet compelling. I preferred it to the first one by a whole bunch.



That's one I haven't seen yet, but have heard good things about, too. Brad Bird is an interesting director. His work on The Simpsons was interesting. Ratatouille was awesome, too. (Didn't like The Incredibles, though.) If it hits Blu-Ray, I'll try to get it. :nice:

Not to dig too much, but I been away from the board for a few days and already more pages than I care to count appear!

Anyways, we can disagree about Avatar, but at least we can agree about Ghibli. Monanoke is definitely one of the best they’ve done.

As was said, get yo *** out there and watch D9 and The Iron Giant! Don’t you have Netflix foo? $10 bucks a month and instant streaming for both D9 and Iron Giant.

I provide a film that fill all the criteria you had for Avatar, so get out and try and get a hold of a copy of La Belle Verte. It’s a French parodoy film about the dysfunctional, out of touch society we live in. Really, really great movie. I mean, really great. Almost impossible to get though, so you might have to grab a copy off tpb.

You're off to watch American TV? :nono: When that's the best you can do you know there's something wrong with the world.

There are a few good shows on American TV now. House, Bones, Lie To Me (the House of lying), and recently over is BattleStar Galactica (which was completely amazing as a TV show), and a while ago Firefly (the space-western by Joss Whedon, also amazing). Lie To Me isn't truly great, but is is fun to watch and well done.


I’d also like to comment on The Hobbit: From my inside sources I can say that as Rag said, it started and has now pretty much stopped. I doubt they will continue on with it, sadly.



And man, Harry, them there’s some pretty freaking serious trailers you made! HOLY COW THEY”RE SO BLUE! What about making one of them in scale eh? :poke:

I have thought about it. the only problem is that I would need to get our High pressure iron rapid prototyped to complete the look. That would be expensive. One of the managers at work was thinking that a model would be neat to have, especially at oil shows.

Just caught this on the Transformers Movie Blogspot page regarding TF3:
- The movie is in 3D, no official word if shot in 3D or converted but likely the latter
- Big bad is Shockwave. Alt mode unknown, in G1 cartoons it was a laser gun and in later incarnations it was a Cybertronian tank.
- John Turturro returns and Agent Simmons
- Twins "basically gone", which I read as they come and probably go violently from the movie early on.
- Plot focuses on the "hidden" story behind the space race of the 60s through 80s.

No Unicron, but SW could be a far better baddie than Fallen, who should have been a supernatural, demon-god instead of a 60-foot space ant with emphysema and the inability to keep his *** from getting kicked.

Man I still feel bad about it too. I passed on the Camaro. I started looking into the shipping time to get from DKV's house to my house to see the time frame that I would be waiting for. I then looked at the column on the left and fell out of my chair. Australian post was going to be close to $100 and fedex was going to be $356, and I did not even think about the import fees. It tore me up, but I can't justify it. I Camaro will be built, but I do not believe I am going the same direction that I went before. I will use the new RC18 oval car as the base and I am more than likely use the losi slider tires and wheels to give it a street car look (like Tim's).

I'm a chevy guy through and through,

Although the Ford MKII Escort and Dodge Charger (69) are some of my fave cars ever.

When it comes to modern pickups though, I hate the way chevy and ford have gone, which is why 2007 onwards I'm turning to dodge...

You're not alone. My Ford-fandom came about from the vulgar display of power and unconstitutional lusts from our government in essentially annexing both GM and Chrysler. (The latter is now in joint-custody with Fiat.) Ford refused Xerxes' seduction and refused to sacrifice their freedom as a private-sector entity to maintain their existence because Ford didn't have to - HUGE factors in my conversion. Also Ford's cars of late are not only attractive but also well-built and engineered. The new Focus finally looks better than a Chernobyl potato bug. The new Taurus no longer looks like a swollen Passat.

I had to fall out of love with the GMC Acadia and Sierra - both machines that I believe are the best-looking in their class - due to my moral outrage at what has become of the corporation.

The Stray Cat
06-11-2010, 01:43 PM
Well I'm a Dodge guy always have been, I've owned a couple of Chevys and a Ford or two only due to financial circumstances at the time. Here's my take, nothing Chevy has made since the late 70s has been worth a sheet of toilet paper, now ford I had a Tempo 94, damn good running little car, handled great and good MPGs, Got a Ford Focus in 2000 and was the biggest piece of newly made garbage I ever dat down in.

I have to add my Father in Law just bought a Brand New Taurus and the car is nice, it has every bell and whistle imagineable and rides as smooth as a Cadilac!

I definitely question how they've handled the front end of their super-duties for the last several years. The new F150 front and rear clips are pretty lame, too. The previous ones (2004-08?) were the best looking Fords since 1979.

So earlier Russ asked if he could post 1000 post in a day, here's the math I came up with, what do you think?

24x60x60=86400 seconds in a day

Now 30 seconds between each post=2880 seconds left for posting figure average 5 seconds per post with HS internet add 3 secs for screen flipping =8seconds per post total.
2880 divided by 8=360 post per day. So nope 1000 post not acheivable. SORRY.

I am out in 30 minutes, thank goodness. I don't dig on GM trucks anymore. Fords are ok, but they are still fords. Don't even ask for my opinions on dudges. If I could have any pickup, it would be a Toyota Tacoma. I had an 02 and I absolutely loved that pickup. It was the best 15 month, 48k miles I have ever driven.

as for the looks of a dodge... how could you NOT like this.

My 98 dodge show truck project that was saddly tore up by a flying building in a tornado... and when my 99 dodge daily driver started givein me fits i desided to tern this into my daily driver... so i haven't done anything to it yet

To the left of pic, my 99 dodge shortbed... to the right the 01 work truck. The white tube on the ground is my flexi red neon

Installing the grill gard was a PITA... dew to the 3 inch body lift... in the top right of the pic you can see the MAJOR damage to the cab... the hood also has a BIG dent, and the door has 2, the fender has a small one that can be poped out by the heat and ice method..

I installed the grill gard before finishing the rig dew to hitting a deer on the way home from work, witch ripped my lower spoiler (black part on bottom of bumper) almost off the truck...
