phlegmmo: Talking about bacon: Man, please, just shut the fark up about bacon.

BLASPHEMY!!!


Nah, I'm with them on that. I like bacon as much as anybody else, but the complete obsession with it is a little weird. It's not like bacon is anything new, or significantly different from what it's been the last couple hundred years.

I was always led to believe swag was "stuff we all get" in reference to the magnets, buttons, stickers and whatnot you got from the stands. When I went to Comiccon a few years back even the people at the badge station were inviting people over to "come get your swag!"

WhippingBoy: StoPPeRmobile: Bill Frist: Nerds were never really cool, but at least it used to mean that you liked a certain class of things that other people didn't like (just like being a punk or goth did with other things).

Now every farking person calls themselves a nerd just cause they... like what everyone else likes!


If it takes me a couple of hours to know all you know about a topic, you are not a nerd.

But I have glasses and I'm wearing a "Talk Nerdy to Me" t-shirt!!!

Steampunk is awesome. Anything that inspires my 15 year old to design and build expanding wings, exposing her to metal working, design, leather working and some basic mechanics is great with me.

pxlboy: zedster: Korzine: Dr. Dre Beats are not $300 headphones, they are a $300 fashion accessory (it's kind of like Bose for young people).

$300 (and higher) head phones would be things like Sennheiser (my preferred brand), Grado (my brothers preferred brand), Audio Techica, Shure, ect. I've never seen such headphones on people in public.

Ya, You are buying image and not quality, they are good headphones but not good bang for your buck.

Also Bose = Buy Other Sound Equipment

/likes Sennheiser and few pairs of Monoprice earbuds, if I lose them no biggie

Thank you. I read the specs on those Beats phones and immediately realized that Beats are the new Jordans; and overpriced "luxury brand" for morons to buy. Yeah, if I'm dropping $300 on a set of phones, they're going to be good goddamned phones.

Also, wearing the full-sized cans in public makes you look like a moron.


High fives all around.

I have a set of Sennheiser HD580s (the Grados are nice, but not shaped for human ears), and they cost me $200 several years back... they're still awesome cans. But they aren't for use in public- comfy, but way too big.

For out and about use, I have a set of cheap Koss that sound great, wear easily, don't cost an arm and a leg, and don't scream "mug me because I have so much money I spend it on shiat audio equipment."

SockMonkeyHolocaust: Can I add "If you're going to try to be a curmudgeon about things at least try to be clever." That was the equivalent of the hit star of the 90s comedy SEINFELD Seinfeld's "HEY WHAT'S THE DEAL WITH..." schtick done by Dennis Leary.

The idea that steampunk is somehow "overexposed" to anyone who hasn't gone well out of their way to look for it is ridiculous.

I'd disagree. It's an extremely shoddy one-note concept that wears really, really quickly. Kickstarter is diseased with projects for gluing cardboard gears onto things.


I have to agree. I like the aesthetics and concept of steam punk, but I can't take it seriously due to it's over exposure. I have more respect for bronies or furries than I do for people wearing "steampunk" fashions.

Steampunk is a condiment, not a main course.

Bill Frist: Pretending that being a nerd is a bad thing anymore: It's no longer self-deprecating to call yourself a "nerd"-"I'm reading 'Game of Thrones.' SO NERDY!"-so stop pretending that it is. Nerds started Apple and Facebook and everything else people obsess over nowadays, and comic book movies are consistent blockbusters at theaters. Nerds are the most powerful people in the world now. Nerds are the new jocks.

This is the worst one.

It isn't just pretending "nerd" is bad, but also the whole idea that you are a "nerd" for liking shiat that everyone else likes. You watched Star Wars, one of the most succesful film franchises ever? You watch a popular TV show like Game of Thrones? You read popular books like Hunger Games? You know the names of the superheros in the Avengers, one of the best box office movies in recent history? You play video games like half the country does?

None of that shiat makes you a nerd!!!


I was a nerd before nerds were cool.

Came for "The Epic Jar" - leaving happy.

Especially since no rational person knows that using it as an interjection came from Vanilla WoW... when finding a Rare drop was a 1/25000 chance.

LowbrowDeluxe: Stratohead: Tax Boy: #24 Zombies in everything

/2013 is going to be the year of the mummy

#25 "Steampunk" anything

You know what, both of you can go fark yourselves. Name 5 steampunk media released in the last year. I dare you. I DOUBLE farkING DARE you.

Back at you you lazy bastard


heres the deal, anything good can be ruined by over-exposure. Bacon is still good, and "SteamPunk" is still an interesting genre of fiction in its own right...and Zombies...well...Zombies have sucked for like 20 years... but people constantly talking about Bacon, or pretending that ANYTHING and EVERYTHING can be "made better with bacon" (it can't) or slapping bacon logos on everything is just retarded.
Steampunk as a genre can be good.... pretending we need bands that sing about airships and how cool it is to glue watch cogs onto everything for no reason just soRenFaire geeks have an excuse to recycle their rennie "garb" by adding watch cogs and goggles...equally retarded.

Zombies...totally played out...there is nothing left to be added to the genre at all. its all be done. It's been done well a few times...but mostly its just been done poorly to cash in... and all the "Zombie Squad" and "zombie Crawl" people can just get over it.
