Media / What's wrong with bein' sexy?
« on: October 02, 2011, 10:06:49 PM »
I don't know where to post this and its mostly just a rant about #talkingtime so if you want to move or delete it be my guest.

(THAD EDIT: Done.  Future scholars take note that this was originally posted in the WTF thread.)

I made a comment in #talkingtime about 'desperately hoping' that I treat woman with the respect they deserve and how since reading this article I've been looking at all media and the way people around said media treat woman in a completely new light and that I wanted to correct this, in whatever small way I can. Those are word for word the things I said, I can link logs if you guys want as evodince  :nyoro~n:


So instead of anything else at all, the people in talking time at that point, just

1) started making fun of woman and

2) started bitching at me about how terrible it was that I had to 'desperately hope' I was treating woman right.


I got mad. I tried to explain that I wasn't an ogre or something and that I meant more about my ideas about media (comics, games movies) I enjoy and the all boys club this seems to facilitate. Well, instead of any responce to that they just made off handed comments about how they


1) One said I Try to respect woman but they have too low self-esteem and are too fat and

2) Woman just want to be treated like people, you can't even handle that?


I tried to respond but I was nearly spitting with frustration at this point and I have to ask, why the fuck did you make this place for these people, Kayin?


I mean, I'm sure the first dude was trolling me, even the second, but damn it. I didn't know if I should cry or want to break heads, and I felt like doing both. I also can't help but note that at least half of their comments are proving my fucking point (which I'm sure they're laughing about like its high comedy).

Assorted Creations / I want to be Bob Ross.
« on: September 02, 2011, 03:10:51 AM »
So I've been pretty addicted to Bob Ross lately. And Bill Alexander. I want to paint but I don't know the first thing about it. I mean, the painting seems fairly straight forward. You paint. But what do you use FOR painting? I mean, brushes, paint and a canvas obviously, but does anyone know if there is like other shit you need to paint with? Like, what do you use to clean the paint brushes? is there anything you have to do as a 'primer' to prime a canvas before you paint it?!

How does one go about getting 'in to' oil painting.
 
Also, a class would probably be the best thing, but there are a few problems with that. One, I live in the woods in Wisconsin, the closest we get to the arts out here is the movie theater I work in. Two, I work full time and stuff so I don't have a ton of free time to take a class (well, that's a lie, I have plenty of free time, from midnight to like six AM every night).

Basically what I'm asking is this, I'm putting together a 'shopping list' so to speak of oil painting supplies to buy on amazon.com or a craft store (that I'd have to drive an hour and a half or so to get to) or something. It has to be fairly comprehensive because I can't exactly just go back to the store if I forgot something or didn't know I needed something. The reason this question popped up is when I added brushes, oil paint set, a palette, some canvases and a knife set to my shopping cart it was like, "Yo dawg you need some easels (that is actually true and i know why) and linseed oil (wtf is this shit and what does it do*)".

*I googled it and you have to thin your paint with this stuff and mineral spirits apparently :D

Team Fortress 2 / Hosting Questions
« on: May 06, 2010, 12:36:44 AM »
Alright guys, now is the time where Joxam has a steady income (despite being out of work) that will NEVER get lower and almost no bills (might change but I don't plan on it) and I want to know not only what we need out of our server?

I want to know what do we WANT out of our server?

I've already dropped 250.00 dollars onto it so we wont need to ask for money anytime soon for monthly payments. Moreover, I'm looking into getting the best bang for buck in a map host(s) site for the custom maps we want to play on the server. Any suggestions in that area or just plain riffing about something else ya'll want on the server goes here. I have some money to play with, but remember, I am going to have to maintain this bill going forward so lets not go buck wild.

Online Hookers / Gunbound Classic
« on: March 22, 2010, 07:02:01 PM »
So, I found a new version, that is supported by softnyx, of gunbound that is gunbound before cash shit came in and made anyone with 10 bucks god tier. It also sells you your avatars forever, instead of weekly or monthly. If ya'll want to play, you can sign up here.

My username is, of course, Joxam.

The only drawback is, like old gunbound, the friends list is buggy as shit, however, its build differently than old gunbound, so aimbots don't work, and that makes up for any small problem I'd have with it.

Online Hookers / D&D 4e
« on: December 30, 2009, 04:40:43 PM »
I'm putting together a 4e D&D game to take place at 7PM to 11PM on sundays, starting as early as the 17th but possibly not until the 24th. Kayumi, Meikai and my brother are currently playing. We'd like two more. If anyone would want to play, please do, I need you! Custom campaign, still designing it, will post more info when I get more done.

Dark fantasy, demons, warring gods and such, don't want to give too much away but I will be posting more info when I get the time.

High-Context Discourse / Market Research
« on: December 11, 2009, 03:35:29 AM »
This is the first stage (for you, I've actually been quite the busy Joxam over the last six months) in a month or so long Market Research project and Business Projection Analysis for a proposed Hobby Store and Table Top RPG retail location.


My Market Research indicates that in an approximate 100 mile radius there isn't a store to buy or location publicly to play the games we here, at Brontoforumus, have grown to love. Furthermore, the indication I got from the user base locally was that even after you travel your 90 or so miles to get to FNM, or to make a D&D night for your friends, you are treated with poor customer service, a terrible gaming environment and low quality inventory at best.

I realized of course, at this point in my research that I had no idea what or how a GOOD place like this does it. I had been treated to these same environments and conditions that the people I was questioning and quite frankly didn't know how to do it better myself. I had some ideas, of course, but nothing that I knew has been tried and true. With that in mind, I propose to you guys my business plan (or rather, multiple ideas that, when weeded through, added to and hammered out will be a business plan) for a store and gaming environment I have yet to name!



First and Foremost, Games Retail.

I found a almost local wholesaler for Hobby and Game stores which provides a great starting point for inventory, plus, of course, Games Workshop but after that, I'm kind of clueless as far as wholesalers go. Of course, before we get into that, what exactly would you, the customer WANT in a store that deals in this sort of thing? Boardgames? Books? News Stand items? Its up to you and feed back is needed.



Secondly, Play Area. How exactly does this = $$$

My initial idea was no cover charge during regular business hours or late on weekends with the option to rent the space after hours for your own groups gaming needs. Of course, that is how I'm sure most people do it, which isn't a big deal, the problem is, how do you make money if you're giving away a large portion of your product (Your gaming space) to all but the most dedicated of players (the people that would rent the building after hours for their own gaming groups)? The answer here, I think, is no carry-ins for drink or food but providing a snack bar and drink selection at all times. The initial idea was sound but upon second thoughts I realize that there might be issues with allowing food and drink in a retail location that deals mostly in books. Your thoughts and comments, of course, are needed!



Thirdly, Play Area again, but different!

Okay, now, I'm wondering how the good guys do this. What I mean is, I've largely seen a store that has a few card tables shoved in the back corner with some douche bag calling it the 'dragon's den' or something stupid like that. I looked at a few options already but am, of course, opened for ideas.

My first idea (mostly because when we bought our house the office building we signed the paper work in was for sale) was to lease a small office building and convert the offices and conference rooms into gaming space. Of course, that would leave a smaller retail space (probably just the lobby of the office building) and create issues with surveillance through out.

Secondly would be an almost bare storefront with all space except walls dedicated to gaming and an Inventory Control System which allows you to have most of your inventory in a storage area while only having 'example' items on the sales floor (gamestop ICS model). Again, these are only jumping off points, ideas and suggestions are asked for and needed!



That should do for now, when we get these things worked out and ready to go we'll tackle the next selection of questions and ideas.

Team Fortress 2 / No Pubbies Night Interest Thread.
« on: November 21, 2009, 02:10:59 PM »
Alright guys. It has come to my attention that some of you would prefer a no pubbies approach to at least on of our tf2 nights a week. I think we can do this fine but I'd like to plan ahead so that we don't get there and its just me, doom, niku and smiler killing each other for an hour before getting bored and removing the password.

I'm thinking we can use a weekend night unless you guys prefer another day and I'd like to make this a semi-regular event, if the interest is there.

Hey guys! Its about that time again. I'm not asking for much, the server only costs 25+ bucks a month. A buck or two from everyone should suffice. joxam1 (at) gmail (dot) com.
