  1. 13 Year Anniversary

    Happy Birthday Sparkbomb! We've hit thirteen years and still counting!
  2. What are your hobbies?

    I appreciate that! It'll probably be a few months before the next time I'm headed up that way. What part of Seattle are you living in right now? They did x-rays for me at the same time I went into physical therapy when I started on at a studio a couple years back. The right approach definitely seems to be working out/strength training for a lot of stuff, especially for those of us coming from a sedentary lifestyle. And it definitely takes several weeks/a few months to notice a difference. Have you tried chiropractic at all? What do you mean by subtle comedy? Like jokes that can go over someone's head, or something else? Those pictures are beautiful. It's really neat that you've been able to carry on a hobby your father had. That's an impressive number of people regardless. I'd been curious to hear what's been going on with Pokemon GO. It seems like most of my friends still playing it locally are doing it individually. What kinds of things have you made? I'm impressed that you were able to keep it up for a full (leap) year. We used to have a small artist community here back in... 2010 or so? Sadly, there hasn't been a SparkArt thread since the 2014 revival.
  3. What are your hobbies?

    No kidding. I ended up on a completely different trajectory from the one I was on back then. The Utah thing fell apart. Short version is that I went down there for two weeks in April, had work and housing lined up, but there were issues with work and so I ended up rejecting the job offer. With no Plan B in place, that left me here in Portland. I've since gotten a job with one of the studios here and expect to be here for the foreseeable future. I was up in Seattle a week and a half ago for a Zouk Congress. (That's the fancy name for a type of dance weekend.) Do you have back pain regularly? I think that's neat, especially for that last reason you mentioned about minor routine and progress. Gardening/plant keeping is pretty far from my interests, but I have a lot of love for any routine interest that gets to see results over time. Have you been doing much of this? I remember seeing you post quite a few random pictures on Facebook from hikes(?) or the like. What kind of films do you want to make?
  4. What are your hobbies?

    As months and years continue to pass, I'm curious what hobbies everyone is currently engaged in. I think that by now everyone knows that dance is both my hobby and career. I've veered away from video games and role playing. (I haven't done a text-based role play in years, and I barely do any tabletop/pen and paper role playing.) I also spend quite a bit of my spare time reading business literature, and I've become a bit of a fashionista as a way to distinguish myself in my career. Almost everything's tied up with work for me. Even my traveling is being done for dance events rather than for adventure/exploration. What about you? What do you like to do in your spare time?
  5. What are you playing?

    How is the remaster? A friend and I fired up Sonic 3 with Knuckles recently. Mostly just to kill time for a couple of afternoons. Got through Sonic 3 just fine with all of the Chaos Emeralds, but we botched the Super Emerald stages and then just couldn't handle that underground volcano/crystal zone.
  6. What are you playing?

    Yeah, it's a shame the 3DS version is missing one of the essential ingredients that makes the game worthwhile. Auhin's Thwomp level was pretty fun. Anyway, snagged world record for several of his levels and starred most of them. I probably upped the death count a fair amount since I was making a lot of risky jumps when I'm not especially good, but I also found the jumps the most interesting part of gameplay. That was one of the early (and beautiful) insights into programming, knowing that the entire underworld was on one screen (so to speak) similar to the overworld. I owned the DX(?) GBC version, so I only got to use the glitch once or twice on a friend's cart.
  7. What are you playing?

    Have you played Link's Awakening before? I don't think I've played it since fifth grade. I didn't realize there was a Mario Maker resource. It'll be good to have a reason to fire up the game. Also recently finished my playthrough of Ocarina of Time 3DS.
  8. Not sure how I feel about this new layout, but parts of it seem decently sexy.

      I hadn't noticed those before. Hum.

      So now instead of "Shattered Rift had the most liked comment on August 2", we'll see "Shattered Rift had the most confused comment on August 12"?

      Or both. Who knows?

  9. On that note, would the game have ended had all of the baddies been defeated? Or would the tournament format have caused it to continue?
  10. Werewolf Hosting and MCing

    If you're willing to do so, go ahead.
  11. There are a lot of things about the format that I enjoyed conceptually, and I'd be curious to see an HP mechanic or the like included. It took a while to wrap my head around timings and such, and I assume the same was true for others. There was also the question of when to use my Kill and whether to use it sooner or save it for the end as I ended up doing. Cel had wanted me to use it on Franc, but I missed the timing to do so, and that ended up working out to our benefit anyway. I had forgotten how difficult Werewolf can be when the dead retain their voices, and I kept worrying about the support powers of the dead. And I was expecting the rez that never came, given both my Kill power and Cel's convert (not to mention Cel's other Kill that somehow still played out). I'd be curious to see other variants on the double execution mechanic in the future. Juggling that was certainly an interesting thing here (especially with my disconnect from almost everything else in the game early on). @Sinical, I'm sorry for your loss. It sucks having real life stuff come up during Werewolf. And I assume your being in Japan made it all the more stressful.
  12. Until we get an explanation of the extension and a rules change for the semi-finals (we shouldn't be on quarter-finals), it should be Rox vs Cel next and then winner faces whoever wins between me and Sinical.
  13. Vote: Sinical Assuming Rox is innocent since he's the only person to provide information, there's no other choice. And, to get into character... You killed Red Like Roses, Heir to the Martyr, The Great Author, The Wily WerePhoenix, Schemer of the Amazons, Master of the Maple, and Holder of All Titles! Edit: Do we have any many baddies are left and/or what powers they have to disrupt combat? My initial thought after Red died was that Sinical is evil, but the more sensible play (if we have reason to believe in the innocence of the three options we have) is to have a draw if we have any method left to do so without being disrupted.
  14. Vote: RocktheFox So it looks like the options for matchups include Cel, Rock, myself, and Rox. Rox is the only person to provide any intel whatsoever. It's probably fine having me fight over and over again (as that partly seems how my role might have been intended to be played), but the risk of two innocents being matched up means it'd be better to see Cel vs Rock. You doing all right?
