An enviable haul! Let me know if The Republic is any good after you're done with it.

I know it has some influence on the idea of Constitutional Republic, Plato also had some nutty ideas that are kind of fascist, I here Politics by Aristotle is better.

Coincidentally, Aristotle in Cockney rhyming slang translates to arse.

Gotta get practiced up first.

itchythesamurai 12-08-2006 12:38 AM

Oh snap, I should check to see if my computer can still handle CS:S. Used to, but it's been acting wonky lately.

Reformat says I. Be nice to play with people who have more then 3 brain cells, your standard issue CS kid is a sad sight.

Ray Jones 12-08-2006 04:05 AM

Reformat is for chumps.

SyntheticGerbil 12-08-2006 09:36 AM

No more Ayn Rand. Arrrrghuhguh!

Ray Jones 12-08-2006 09:43 AM

I wonder if he's old eunuch now to have an eriction. XDDDDD

BAAAH! It doesn't eat up my free time, take my money, or place any restrictions on my life. Theres nothing wrong with it.

SyntheticGerbil 12-08-2006 11:14 PM

The only thing that remotely makes me want to read Ayn Rand is just so I can understand this comic strip by Evan Dorkin:

Otherwise I think philosophers are a load of overprivelaged blowhards with delusions of grandeur.

True, but you've got to admit, some of those philosophers have stones. Eric, would you mind explaining that comic in five hundred words or less? Thanks.

SyntheticGerbil 12-09-2006 12:26 PM

Well some dabbled in executing political theory, so they all just didn't sit around postulating. Those are the good ones.

No arguments there.

Objectivism is pretty much the same thing as being a Libertarian, something I was long before I read the books. She wouldn't admit that there was any resemblance but it really doesn't matter to me.

XoXoXAlexOxOxO 12-09-2006 06:54 PM

happy b-day :), hope its a good one

itchythesamurai 12-09-2006 07:14 PM

I'm not sure if he's going to be able to forgive you for being two days late. Only time will tell.

SyntheticGerbil 12-09-2006 07:34 PM

Is this Alex person real?

Is Eric going to explain that comic strip?

Is GodJesus an actual robot?

The philosophy includes not compromising your goals for the convenience of others. The rest I can't say.

Have I told you to read Watchmen yet? The part about compromising reminded me of it.

I don't think so.

itchythesamurai 12-09-2006 11:21 PM

Oh, in that case: you should read Watchmen.

SyntheticGerbil 12-10-2006 01:55 PM

Alan Moore pisses me off in general, using fancy speech for absolutely no reason at all in everything he does.

It bothers me off when I read a quote by him on the back of a Jim Woodring comic and he uses the phrase "not unlike." That's such a pretentious thing to say. Jesus man, just say "like." I think he's compensating for the fact that he's not an artist. At least he's not as annoying as Doug TenNapel.

But I guess I'll have to end up collecting Alan Moore one day with all the hype he gets, but there's a lot of other honest guys that don't constantly get their stuff optioned for movies that I'd rather deal with first.

itchythesamurai 12-10-2006 03:55 PM

How do you feel about Frank Miller, Sean?

SyntheticGerbil 12-10-2006 04:12 PM

I like him but he should do less mainstream superhero comics.

But I hate Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez and I wish they all never got associated.

Because now Sin City 2 and 3 will come out and the only thing people will blab about for years is how suddenly they are into independent comics because they saw some horrible overproduced movie based on an independent comic.

itchythesamurai 12-10-2006 04:35 PM

I loved the books and the movie, I'm glad the film exists, even if I can't be as elitist about my interests. Really excited about 300 coming out in about three months.

SyntheticGerbil 12-10-2006 06:09 PM

Well I'm not that elitist, in fact you've managed to pick the two guys in comics I sort of have the biggest problems with. THANKS A LOT MAN!

But I don't think I ever look forward to comic book movies.

itchythesamurai 12-10-2006 08:44 PM

Ha, I geek out about comic book movies and get to lord over any of my friends who are at least mildly interested in seeing the films. Afterwards, I get to be snide about how the movie was unfaithful and proceed to recommend the source material. It's a nice little setup I have.

SyntheticGerbil 12-11-2006 12:24 AM

Like Hellboy? That one halfway pissed me off.

Ghost World was okay, but I like Art School Confidential even though it's lightly based on the comic.

itchythesamurai 12-11-2006 07:46 AM

Hellboy? Hell naw, that movie sucked. Never really got into the comics either. Did you happen to see the pilot for Amazing Screw-on Head? I thought that looked pretty entertaining.

SyntheticGerbil 12-11-2006 01:45 PM

Yeah I downloaded that one. That one is really cool. Too bad it's not a movie.

itchythesamurai 12-11-2006 05:29 PM

That shiz better got picked up as a series. Sci-Fi needs a quality boost.

SyntheticGerbil 12-11-2006 08:45 PM

I think at the moment it's only coming out on a DVD in February.
