#545: “Back in Action”

*** Now talking in #suburbansenshi
*** Topic is '-= Settings tweaked, machine fixed, Laptop Hasshin! =-'
[18:47] * Dr_Xadium wipes the sweat off his brow

[18:47] <Dr_Xadium> Finally, I've managed to fix everything, and my TARDIS is all back to normal
[18:47] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> Back to normal my [BLEEP], you totally overhauled it

[18:49] <Dr_Xadium> Yes well every 200 years or so you need to clear the gunk out of the system-- everything runs faster and snappier now...
[18:49] <// J_Daito //> Is "gunk" some kind of uber-geek technical term you'd need a comp.sci degree to understand?
[18:50] <FireFly_9> Do all those gauges on the console work?
[18:50] <Dr_Xadium> Yes, using Samurize I have the central column light up to indicate CPU and bandwith load, the smaller lights change color depending on email status notification, and I have a running total of free diskspace and total downloads...
[18:51] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> How do you do the calendar thing
[18:52] <Dr_Xadium> Rainlendar
[18:54] <Cést_la_V> Yes and now that it's all working he can go back to watching the Sopranos
[18:54] <Dr_Xadium> Heh
[18:55] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> Yeah well I don't go in much for modding my computer
[18:56] <Dr_Xadium> But it's fun!
[18:59] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> Yeah well back to stuff people actually care about, like ME for instance... I saw this badass movie the other day, called "Ong Bak"
[19:01] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> It was like the damn matrix without wires or CGI... it was a Jackie Chan-esque stuntfest without all the corny gags
[19:02] <// J_Daito //> Hmm, sounds like they had no budget
[19:02] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> No man, it's GREAT, they are in Thailand, and they must smash half of it before they're through... the main star is real deal, lemme tell ya
[19:03] <// J_Daito //> heh
[19:03] <FireFly_9> Honestly, that's all you two care about, itsn't it... the body count and the explosions per minute...
[19:04] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> Yeah, so?
[19:04] <// J_Daito //> I want blood too
[19:04] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> yea yeah blood
[19:04] <FireFly_9> What about *plot*?
[19:04] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> HAH! I think you will find, little miss Lit Crit, that this movie was a standard variant of the mythological hero quest, with our simple and unassuming protagonist being blessed and sent on his way by a desperate people to seek a holy object in order to placate the wrath of a wronged god, and in the process he emerges forever changes from the experience.
[19:06] <FireFly_9> ...
[19:06] <FireFly_9> What I don't understand about you, Haruka-poppa, is that you are obviously highly intelligent and capable of cogitating and constructing such complex pieces of reasoning and analysis, yet when you are at home, you act like--for lack of a less apt word--an oaf.
[19:07] <FireFly_9> Why is this?
[19:07] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> Thinking takes effort
[19:07] * --=[ SpeedRcrX ]=-- hates effort unless pride, prizes or chicks are on the line

[19:08] <FireFly_9> Unbelievable.
[19:08] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> Life as a slax0r rocks, you shoudl try it
[19:08] <FireFly_9> You can only afford such an indulgent lifestyle because you leech off of Michiru-Momma's money in between races and concerts...
[19:09] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> Hey she receives "Compensation"... ehehehehehe
[19:09] <FireFly_9> Doesn't it shame you to be a "kept" woman, Haruka-poppa?
[19:09] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> No
[19:09] <FireFly_9> No?
[19:10] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> WTF it's symbiotically beneficial... I get stuff I want, she gets what she wants, which is also something I want, so it's all good
[19:10] <FireFly_9> But what of your pride?
[19:10] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> You're just bitter because no one wants to "keep" you, that's all... look. I figurd out a way to get everything I want and do almost NOTHING for it, isn't that the ULTIMATE in achievement?
[19:11] <FireFly_9> ...
[19:11] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> I'm living large and laughing easy, babe! hahaha!
[19:11] * Cést_la_V wants an easy kept life too

[19:12] <Dr_Xadium> Mina!
[19:12] <FireFly_9> Haruka-poppa, you're setting a bad example!
[19:12] <Cést_la_V> Who doesn't want to live large and laugh easy??
[19:12] <Dr_Xadium> But you have fun singing and being an idol, and that makes you money
[19:13] <Cést_la_V> True... well it would if I wasn't tired of all the annoying Pepperoni...
[19:13] <FireFly_9> "Paparazzi".
[19:13] <Cést_la_V> X-chan is just to cheap to keep me!!
[19:13] <Dr_Xadium> LOL there's a difference between being cheap and being broke
[19:14] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> Hah you should do what I do, Doc, find a Sugar Mama and latch on like a Remora to a Shark
[19:14] <Dr_Xadium> First of all, I refuse to live like that, and second of all, it doesn't work that way for males.
[19:15] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> Sure it does, just find some 80 year old shriveled up old dowager who's "lonely" for a little "comfort".
[19:15] * --=[ SpeedRcrX ]=-- waggles her eyebrow

[19:16] <Dr_Xadium> Agh!
[19:16] <FireFly_9> I am so grateful I paid almost no attention to Haruka-poppa during my second set of formative years...
[19:16] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> Which lasted all of what, TWO WEEKS?
[19:17] <FireFly_9> heh
[19:17] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> You know, 'Taru-chan, what if your rapid aging isn't over yet... what if you suddenly wake up a shriveled old hag in the morning
[19:17] <Cést_la_V> You could "keep" X-chan! hahahahahahahaha!!!
[19:18] <FireFly_9> Gah
[19:18] <Dr_Xadium> Ack
[19:18] *** Dr_Xadium has kicked --=[ SpeedRcrX ]=-- from #suburbansenshi (REASON: BAD VISUAL IMAGERY, PUNK)

[19:18] <FireFly_9> No offense.
[19:18] <Dr_Xadium> Ditto
