Original post by Ginnsu:

If you enjoy that QuoteBot that I got sitting in the #ocremix, you should probably know that I went and screwed up the votes. It started with my coding negligence and ended with some really bad math. So I erased all your votes. And now I’m telling you that you all have to… I mean, uhm… you can vote again, if you would like. PLEASE! I mean, it would be really really nice if you all voted again, on all the quotes. And speaking of which, I made it easier to vote on all the quotes by making a toggle on the webpage. The toggle allows you to turn off all the quotes on which you have not yet voted. SO VOTE DAMNIT! Because the more you vote, the more the quotes don’t suck.

There will be another feature added within a few days as well, so stay tuned.


Just A quickie (Happy, Dan?).

Mom got me to scan this from the local paper last night. She thought it was funny and cute and I’m inclined to agree with her.

Original post by Disco Dan:

You ever known someone who never really says much, and when they do, it’s not usually something anyone really cares about, and it’s more for the sake of hearing themselves speak (or seeing their text on a screen, as the case may be)? And have you ever known one of these people who jumps at every opportunity to argue and then rollicks in their own victory as if they’ve acheived anything more than alienating themselves from society in general?

Let me post an example. Keep in mind that the identity of the individual I am using as an example has been changed to “angrygeek” for the sake of anonymity.

&ltDiscoDan&gt the Dixie Chicks, whose music I hate, were on tour in europe, and said that they were ashamed to come from texas because of this whole thing
&ltDiscoDan&gt and so coutry stations stopped playing their music
&ltDiscoDan&gt YAY FOR FREE SPEECH!!!
&ltangrygeek&gt how is that not free speech
&ltangrygeek&gt they didn’t get shot for it.
&ltDragonking&gt wohoo, now if only we could get people like jennifer lopez to say the same thing we would be on our way to true world peace
&ltDiscoDan&gt good point
&ltDiscoDan&gt shut up angrygeek. stop trying to make trouble. go back to you hole
&ltDiscoDan&gt your hole
&ltangrygeek&gt when you speak controversially, or against the ideas of the majority, you risk the consequences of people being pissed at you
&ltDiscoDan&gt yup
&ltangrygeek&gt discodan: sorry, you’d have to do a lot more than that for me to ‘go back to my hole’
&ltDiscoDan&gt but censorship is sort of old-fashioned
&ltangrygeek&gt discodan: how is it censorship?
&ltDragonking&gt a hole? angrygeek must be from afghanistan
&ltDragonking&gt buddum ching!
&ltangrygeek&gt they can still say whatever they want, whenever they want
&ltDiscoDan&gt stopping playing their music? radio stations, stopping playing their music because they don’t like what the group said?
&ltDiscoDan&gt I’m not talking about the Dixie Chicks
&ltDiscoDan&gt I’m talking about the radio stations that banned their music
&ltangrygeek&gt news flash, that’s called selective playlisting
&ltDiscoDan&gt simply because they stated an opinion
&ltDiscoDan&gt yeah, ok, you’re pretty much pointless to argue with. Have fun.
&ltangrygeek&gt discodan: if you think it’s about ‘opinion’ or crap like that, you’re deluded.
&ltangrygeek&gt most country music listeners are hicks from georgia who WOULD shoot you if you said that, so, they’r enot going to want to hear, or buy, music from said people
&ltangrygeek&gt hence, pulling it from radio rotation to avoid bad image and loss of $
*** Beatdrop (~dcolsen@209.32.113.82) Quit (Quit: be back in a bit)
&ltangrygeek&gt in conclusion, you’re an idiot and are looking way too deep.
&ltDiscoDan&gt good. Way to make a conclusion that has nothing to do with my point. But this is typical angrygeek fashion, so I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised
&ltangrygeek&gt what’s your point, again
&ltangrygeek&gt OMG LOL RADIO STATIONS SUXXXXXX FOR PICKING SOMETHING THAT’LL COST THEM MONEY AND NOT KEEPING IT
&ltangrygeek&gt ?
&ltDiscoDan&gt yes, that was precisely my point
&ltDiscoDan&gt but, you have so deftly proved me wrong
&ltDiscoDan&gt so congratulations, you are the smart one here
&ltDiscoDan&gt you are right. you win.
&ltDiscoDan&gt you’re king of the world
*** Bruk (Bruk@evrtwa1-ar10-4-40-045-113.evrtwa1.dsl-verizon.net) has joined #ocremix
&ltBruk&gt whee
&ltBruk&gt I got my food handler’s permit
&ltangrygeek&gt w00t, go me
&ltBruk&gt not like anyone cares or anything, but whee!
&ltangrygeek&gt thanks for conceding.
&ltDragonking&gt angrygeek, im just curious, are you arguing that the radio stations have stopped playing dixie chicks for other reasons than what they said or that they banned the music intelligently because it would cost them ratings and money?
&ltBruk&gt uh oh
&ltBruk&gt I came at a bad time
&ltangrygeek&gt also: bruk, congratulations, food handler stuff is hard to not sleep through
&ltBruk&gt indeed
&ltBruk&gt hahaah
&ltNacostradamus&gt naco goes away
&ltNacostradamus&gt have much fun with teh arguments
&ltNacostradamus&gt time for xeno
*** Nacostradamus is now known as Naco|Xenosaga
&ltangrygeek&gt dragonking: they stopped playing it because 99% of their audience would be pissed by statements such as “i’m embarassed to be from texas” which would directly translate to loss of appeal and sales
&ltangrygeek&gt discodan is looking way, way, way too hard and trying to say that they pulled it because they’re trying to CENSOR and REMOVE FREE SPEECH
&ltangrygeek&gt when noone has ever guaranteed that your opinions have to get equal press all over everywhere
&ltDragonking&gt true, but do you see that as correct? forget about it being a smart business move, but do you feel thats morally just?
&ltangrygeek&gt what
&ltangrygeek&gt how does that have anythign to do with morals?
&ltangrygeek&gt stop looking so hard.
&ltDragonking&gt so hard how?
&ltangrygeek&gt morals, feelings, etc, etc, never entered the picture
&ltDragonking&gt are radio stations run by robots?
&ltangrygeek&gt i can almost guarantee it was pure buisness.
&ltDragonking&gt there are people running them who have opinions
&ltDragonking&gt and feelings
&ltDragonking&gt and morals
&ltDragonking&gt and to think taht they dont affect their decisions isnt very prudent
&ltangrygeek&gt i can guarantee almost to a certainty that execs care more about buisness than imposing their personal beliefs on everyone
&ltangrygeek&gt and if they do care, their beliefs most likely consist of “i believe i should make more money than everyone else”
&ltDragonking&gt a point well taken. alrighty then, t’was all i wanted to know. :) now back to the news!
*** RamaLuvsRobbynAlot[Naked] (sgtrama@AC9A2482.ipt.aol.com) Quit (Write Error: Connection reset by peer)
&ltangrygeek&gt i’m on FIRE.
&ltangrygeek&gt 2 wins in a row, go me
&ltangrygeek&gt (although discodan is over there brooding and being pissy because i was right and he didn’t have anything to challenge me with)

So you can see that the individual in question took great pride in his “victory.” He obviously felt that he had “won” something and could now put it on his list of accomplishments in life. Let’s look at a more brief and more recent example of his greatness:

&ltDiscoDan&gt ah the mixed blessing of university internet service
&ltDiscoDan&gt unlimited high speed internet, and big brother at your back
&ltangrygeek&gt if you didn’t DL pron or warez, you’d have nothing to worry about from ‘big brother’
&ltangrygeek&gt (i put it in quotes, as the idea of big brother is completely inapplicable to universities, who have every right ever to monitor and guard your access to their servers and bandwidth. i won this one without DD saying ANYTHING.)

Now, I post his and my text as they appeared in the original conversation, but I cut out the things that other people said in between since they were essentially part of a different conversation or were not directly pertinent to this one. However, I guess my real question is what is gained by this sort of behavior? Is there truly a sense of accomplishment and victory in these sorts of situations? Does one look away from the monitor after “winning” take in one’s surroundings and feel better about oneself because of this? I am unable to answer this. But it strikes me as interesting that this behavior is consistent and predictable. Ah well, perhaps I should just not talk, and maybe he would have no need to respond? Possibly.

But I think we can all be part of the bigger solution by solving these problems before they get out of hand. So if you know someone like this in person, give them a good punch in the mouth (even if they haven’t said anything!) and tell ‘em “DiscoDan says, ‘Shut up. No one cares.’”

Thanks and God bless,

Daniel


April Winchell is an angry bitch.

This post was imported from an old weblog posted to by multiple people who do not have user accounts here. Some, if not all, of the links may not work, and some of the content is … questionable. These posts are mostly here for my own sake, but feel free to read through them.

Original post by Antonio Pizza:

If you’ve been in the chat lately (which if you’re viewing this site, you most assuredly have), you may have noticed my recent fascination with a woman named April Winchell. The question I get alot? Who is April Whinchell?

First off, April is an angry bitch.
Second, April is a FUNNY, angry bitch.
Third, the cartoon fan in you may recognize her as the voice of Baby Herman’s mother in “Who Framed Roger Rabbit?”, Peg on “Goof Troop”, and Ms. Finster on “Recess.” Her dad is Paul Winchell, better known to your little cousins as the voice of Tigger on Winnie-the-Pooh or better known to you as the voice of Gargamel on “The Smurfs.”

I don’t recall how I came across April’s website, but it was probably during another search of voice over actors. Anyways, April used to host a radio show in L.A. but her show was cancelled (if you can find out why for me and provide proof, you’ll win a coveted auto-@ in #ourownlittlechannel. Either that or I’ll mail you a dollar.) so she guest spots on Friday’s with Mr. KABC.

Her site has a crapload of humorous mp3 on it, such as the infamous “My Vagina” that I keep playing in mIRC. If you feel like torturing yourself, she’s got clips of washed up and B-list “celebrities” singing showtunes. Why? Purely to torture you.

She’s got archives of her radio shows on there (commercial free) so you can listen to her bitch for a few hours while your doing your homework. When your stuck on problem #4 for that damn algebra class and your all pissed off because the answers in the back of the book are only for the ODD numbered questions, flip on some April Winchell and let her get angry for you.

I must point this out though:

The man you hear is Howard Stern. He’s talking about how much he loves this radio spot she did. And yes, it really is one of the mp3′s that’s worth downloading even if you’re on a 56k.

In Summary:
April Winchell is a funny, yet angry bitch. I’m sure she would agree.

Linkage review:
April Winchell.com
Radio Savant. This is her production company that produces radio advertisements. This is where I got the Howard Stern thingy from.
IMDB filmography for April. I know some of you think IMDB is evil. Well…fuck you. It’s all I got.
Nancy Cartwright’s website. If you can find a way to put 5 Nancy Cartwright samples in a song (but only using one of Bart Simpson) without them having a forced or overly gratuitous feel to it, I’ll give you a dollar. What does Nancy Cartwright have to do with any of this? Not a damn thing. Who is she? Well she’s Nancy Cartwright, who the hell are you?

Original post by Saunders:

*Door Opens*
Religious Solicitor (RS): Hello there, I’m collecting money for less fortunate children in places like Africa.
Me: Sorry, no.
RS: But sir, God wants you to help these children!
Me: God, eh? I don’t think so.
RS: You don’t believe in God? Have you no faith?
Me: Faith? In what? You’re here asking for money to help innocent people who are suffering through no fault of their own. Why would I place faith in a being that allows that to happen?
RS: So you don’t believe in God? Is that what you’re saying?
Me: No, I’m not saying that. What I’m trying to say is that there’s not enough proof either way to make me believe that what you say he wants me to do, is what he wants me to do.
RS: But God wants us to help our fellow man. He wants people to be kind and loving to eachother! The only proof you need is that I am here! God is working through me to lead you along the right path in life.
Me: Well he’s not doing a very good job then, cus you’re certainly not convincing me. I figure that an omnipotent being would be able to come up with something better than some unconvincing nerd. You know, as far as that goes, how do I know that God isn’t punishing these people for some reason. I mean, as far as I can tell they haven’t done anything, but maybe in his eyes they did something bad, so he’s punishing them with famine and pestilence, and here you are, trying to get money from me to help them, which would be going directly against God’s will, no? Maybe you’re an agent of Satan, come here to convince me do his evil deeds.
RS: That’s silly! I would never follow the Devil!
Me: Even so, how do I know that it’s God’s will that these people be helped? Did you ever think that maybe he wants us all to help ourselves and the ones that come out on top are the only ones who get to bask in the greatness of eternal life?
RS: But the bible says-
Me: I never read the bible. I’m not a fan of fiction that old.
RS: *Gasp* You are going to hell! Do you know that?
Me: Maybe. Who knows, I might even see you there.
RS: I rather doubt that. Goodbye and may God have mercy on your soul.
Me: You too, O Minion of the Dark Lord!

Quote Removal Requests

Author: | Categories: Archived
Date: March 9, 2003 @ 4:14 am | Comments (0)

This post was imported from an old weblog posted to by multiple people who do not have user accounts here. Some, if not all, of the links may not work, and some of the content is … questionable. These posts are mostly here for my own sake, but feel free to read through them.

Original post by Ginnsu:

Last week sometime I got an e-mail from somebody (who’s name I will not disclose because he’s already pissed off at me enough as it is) who wanted Quote 298 (can you guess who yet?) removed from the Quote DataBase. I figured this was a great oppertunity to start off the Removal Requests part of the Quote DataBase. The reason the person wanted the quote removed struck me as funny. I almost thought there was a possibility that they might have been totally kidding. The only reason thye gave was that they “seriously hated that quote.” So I displayed it on the very front page, and requested that anybody who agreed or disagreed with the person who wanted the quote removed. Not suprizingly, nobody e-mailed. And nobody even bothered to comment on it to me at all. The only thing that did happen, is that the quote rapidly grew in popularity. It is now resting in the top ten list of top scoring quotes, and I would suspect that the only reason that happened was that it was sitting on the front page with a silly removal request. Then finally I did here something about it. The person who requested the removal of the quote thanked me for being so discrete (yes, I think that was sarcasm) and then we proceded to have a short and frank conversation about my “Quote handling.”

This was where I found out that the person who wanted the quote removed made a few mistakes. I’m telling you all this so that you don’t have to make those mistakes, so listen up.

(1) The first mistake was that he assumed that it’d be handled discretely. The problem here is that the quote was popular before the request for removal was made. And I needed more compelling reasons then the one that they gave me, so I asked for them. Maybe putting the name of the person who requested removal was going a little too far on my part. But I would still have to make it known that there was a request. With the quote we are speaking of here, the only person who could possibly whine (oops, complain) about it, is obvious.

(2) The reason was far from anything that would compel me to remove the quote. You can “seriously hate” all the quotes you want, but that doesn’t get them off the site. “This quote is racist.” followed by an explanation of how it is racist, might just get you what your looking for.

(3) They took offense to the quote. Here is where the core of the problem lies. Don’t seriously expect me to remove a quote that offends you because it makes fun of you, and then in turn laugh at the quotes that make fun of others. You know what I’ve noticed about people who don’t laugh at others? They’re all uptight, so don’t take that route either. Instead, lighten up, learn to laugh at yourself, and don’t take offense to the world of IRC. If you do, then you’re not enjoying yourself anyways, so why stick around?

(4) They weren’t kidding when they made the removal request. Because, if they were, I would have found that funny. Wait, who am I kidding? I did find it funny.

So, there you have it folks. Don’t make those mistakes. I’m sorry to the person who requested the quote for putting your name up as the person who requested the quote be removed, and I’m sorry that I can’t fullfill your request.


I like cheese cake.

Original post by Disco Dan:

I really do like cheese cake. I like the really thick kind that you get at gourmet restaurants (i.e. not McDonalds) that usually has something like raspberry mango sauce poured on it (that was the good stuff, man). But this one girl I know made this “cheese cake” once and I was like “Oh man! Cheese cake!” (’cause I really like cheese cake) but then I tried it and it was more like… cheese PIE. It was very disturbing.

But anyway, Friday, I drove up to visit Binnie (Digital Coma) and David Lloyd (some loser you probably haven’t heard of) for the day. Now, originally I was going to pick up Binnie at his school a la Ferris Bueller’s Day off (yes, with the kissing included) but Binnie decided to be a jerk and drove to school instead which was fine by me since I was already 2 hours late leaving.

So anyway, I show up to the guy’s house and he’s like “um, can you please take off your shoes?” And I’m like, “ummmmm…. ok, what is this? Some sort of crazy religious thing?” And he proceeds to smack me and tell me to respect his culture and so I take off my shoes. Then he’s like “well we ordered pizza, would you like some?” And I’m like “Sure! Free food is good!” Oh, but there’s a catch! It’s VEGETARIAN pizza! No meat?!? This was culture shock of the worst kind. I was thinking “what kind of bizarre people don’t eat MEAT on their pizza?!?” Ok, so we finish our “pizza” (I put it in quotes because pizza without meat can hardly be called pizza), and I’m like “What’s this jar of rocks?” (pointing to a jar of rocks). And he says “Oh, it’s candy. Try one.” And I’m thinking “This is a bad dream. I’m going to wake up soon.” So we go upstairs and he shows me the entertainment room. In this room are many machines, like consoles, and a computer. But his computer is running on windows 98. So at this point I start to pinch myself every once in a while to make sure that I’m still there.

After that we headed over to dave’s place to hang out, get drunk, abuse his consoles (read: play “Zusar Vasar” on the dreamcast) use him for his undying hospitality and watch “The Two Towers” in the comfort of his living room. All in all, it was a pretty “chill” night, and really there was no reason to mention all of this except that Rob was like “Get off your lazy ass and make a news post! You begged me to make you a news admin and now you take my generosity for granted! YOU CUR!” So anyway, it’s not really news. But I think what we can learn from this is that you should always fear cultures that you don’t understand. That way you stay safer.

“The more you know….”

Original post by Saunders:

So yeah, my Mom setup a PayPal account and I see all these sites with “Donate to me!” PayPal buttons. Granted, they deserve money because they provide entertaining content, whereas I’m just a mook with a web server and some free time. So, like the subject says, the donations are welcome, and appreciated, but they’re not expected or, unfortunately for you, rewarded. Yes, that means that if you give me money you get nothing for it more than the self satisfaction of, well.. giving me money I guess. Well.. giving my parents money actually, as it goes to them. It’s basically a way to help my Dad with the bills, internet, computer, or otherwise.

Thanks for reading.

Original post by Saunders:

Come one, come all, to the grand redesign of Saunders Server!
I’ve been working on this design for a little while now and I believe it’s complete and ready for action.

Along with the new layout, we also have a new News Admin. Drum roll please.
And it is…………

DISCODAN!

Also, I dropped the downloads and rock paper scissors sections.. for now. I might bring the downloads back, but I’m not sure about RPS.

That’s all for now, hope you all enjoy the new layout as much as I do.

Oh, and if anyone sees something that doesn’t look right, then please contact me right away.
