Title: Quote of the Day Thread
Post by: Rosella on July 10, 2010, 01:55:25 PM
You guys remember this one, right? :P

"From the critically acclaimed King's Quest series comes 'Graham's Bedtime Stories.' Narrated by Jason Michael Victor, the voice of King Graham in the beloved and fan favorite The Silver Lining. His soothing voice will help you fall asleep, all the while listening to the bedtime stories he would tell his own Daughter, Rosella, during her early years. Order now for only 19 Gold Pieces! And remember, order through Crispin's Magical Emporium in the next twenty-four minutes to receive a special limited edition Graham bobble-head!"

I thought it was genius and needed to be preserved for posterity. XD

Not from the forum, but...

Characters started to emerge: One of the newest is the owl Cedric, a cuddly little sidekick whose main job is to act as a foil for the hero. Roberta was never 100-percent satisfied with his development and feels with more time he could have played a larger role; even so, Ken Williams sees marketing and licensing possibilities for a stuffed Cedric.

So you're arguing that the two phrases

Quote
"...clean your household..." and
"Episode 2: Two Households"

form a pun? It can't be a pun because the word in question, "household", it used in the same sense both times. If anything, I'd call this an allusion.

Yes, but I believe it was intended to spark some sort of comedic reaction. The phrase wasn't really meant to allude to the subtitle of Episode 2. He was trying to represent the redundant action of a character from a show. I wouldn't call it a pun myself, but it was intended to be "funny". However, I'm just choosing to look past it, because it isn't worth debating.

"Hello, ladies, how are you?  Fantastic.  Does your man give you tiaras, brooches, necklaces, and rings the first time he meets you?  No!  Should he use Old Spice body wash?  I don't know!  Do you like the smell of adventure?  Do you want a man to smell like he can lure a goat to a troll's toll bridge and rescue you from quartz towers?  Of course you do!  Now I'm on a horse."

I have to also nominate Enchantermon for his version, too!

Hello, maidens. Look at your king. Now back to me. Now back at your king. Now back to me. Sadly, he isn't me. But if he stopped using maiden-scented body wash and switched to Ye Olde Spice he could smell like he's me. Look down. Back up. Where are you? You're on a The Green Isles' ferry with the king your king could smell like. What's in your hand? Back at me. I have it. It's an oyster with a golden key inside that unlocks a door leading to the thing you love. Look again. The key is now a diamond-encrusted tiara. Anything is possible when your king smells like Ye Olde Spice and not a maiden. I'm on a horse.

And that must have been why he was asking Cassima about his son...as a man.  He wanted to make sure Alexander's pockets weren't larger than his!  Talk about insecure...

My second favorite quote was when you look at the female guard dog outside the throne room and the narrator says something like, "Graham wonders if she's related to Captain Saladin."  All I could think after hearing that was, "That's so racist Graham!"

Wait, being pale makes you a vampire in the Twilight zone?
Vampires are pale.  Bella is pale.  Therefore, Bella is a vampire. :P

My god, my hands. I'm a vampire!! Except it was the cold winter that stung me!! What will become of me? A Snowsferatu? Will I roam around the country in a van full of other people like me and make sure that no car on our path will ever start without a proper heating?

Wait a minute... Has anybody staked MJ's body yet? Just to be sure.

Maybe it's just me, but on the Disney DVDs for a lot of the old films (like Snow White; even newer ones like Beauty and the Beast), the art seems...idk..touched up somehow. Maybe I just miss the old grit that VHS grain brought. But the films just look newer than I remember looking as a kid.
That is generally what the phrase "digitally remastered" means.

Actually you sort of forgot a few of the lines also in the game

Where Graham talks about how the darkness in his life made him stronger. As someone once said "A Candle burns brightest in darkness" or something along those lines.

I think it is alluding to King Graham defying the fate of his existance, defying being a pawn in these endless struggled through darkness and light... and chosing both.

Chosing the bad with the good. Which isn't even the choice. Darkness and Light are not good and evil. Hense why Rosella's nightmare is a world of perpetual boring light and Alexander's is a world of darkness he cannot escape, they are both the struggles at their core character. Deciding that even though their lives have been tough, that there has been genuin joy, genuin strength to be had, and that the journey is what sustained them all through it.

Afterall this game is called "The Silver Lining"
... :) Thanks, neovenek. You've lessened my fears of a bad ending for Graham.

Debating and analyzing is all well and good, but what's the point in stretching out a childish, inane argument like the one this thread degenerated into? :P

Well, see, I'm not sure on this point. There was an actually interesting point/discussion to be had (though off the original topic of the thread, so I didn't follow it). Why are there humans in every story we tell? If there aren't humans, there are usually anthropomorphized characters, etc. Even discussing the implications of the Light/Dark-side duality in comparison to a good/evil duality is somewhat more interesting than sitting around talking about how cool lightsabers are. :P

So, my point is that it is possible to have interesting, intellectually stimulating conversation on points that seem arbitrary or silly and that running around calling every analysis of something you find unanalyzable (because you consider it silly or arbitrary from the outset and therefore unworthy of proper intelligent analysis) stymies actual productive conversation. To that end, Neonivek has a valid complaint: he is interested in the discussion, but people keep chiming in not only to not contribute but also to detract by sharing their opinion that the conversation is silly, inane, childish, or pointless.

Here's the thing: if you don't reduce either intellectual or moral arguments or messages from media, then you are going through life with your brain lodged firmly in the off-position. You have the choice of when to turn it on or leave it off. So, you don't want to analyze Star Wars? Don't. Hopefully, you do analyze or consider the morality or logic underpinning at least some of what you consume. Now, if you don't want to do that for anything ever, I highly recommend that you get some intellectual depth... that or continue to be a drain on society. (Ok, I've slipped into using "you" for generic third person... I'm too lazy to change it now.) Telling other people their conversations are silly, inane, childish, or pointless is a way of trying to deny them intellectual curiosity, and if nothing else, unless they've done that to you, it is simply unfair. You think it's silly. You don't contribute. ...We're on the bloody TSL-forums, for Pete's sake--precisely how many times did some troll come along to say "you're all wasting your time, this is silly, this game will never happen"? Honestly. ::)

It was a lot.

Also, also, we so meta--we be discussin' the virtues of discussin' stuff. ::)

This is the most brilliant thing ever. XD Without contest. XD

To be fair, the OED is such a massive undertaking (every word in the English language plus the etymological history for EVERY SINGLE ONE) that there are bits that haven't been updated since the 1930s. They're currently working through it (again! This is like the second time they've had to do this) and will eventually have all sections up to date(ish), but it's going to take a few more years. XD

We were discussing how we would stat out Deloria's character in an RPG as a dragon (rather than a human mage which we did the other day :P)... seeing as her dragon was an aquatic dragon with pearl scales that periodically gets bored being a dragon and emerges to cull the stupid from the ranks of the humanity (her current schemes seem to primarily focus on magically poisoning kegs at Greek parties across the US). So, in a way, she did kind of have a "gun".

I had to talk her down to magically poisoning kegs... I had to convince her that actually, as impressive as dragons are, within this setting, if you tick off or otherwise upset enough members of magical society and/or the secret government agencies that deal with the magical and psychic, even if you are a dragon, you are setting yourself up for a terrible time. Skilled magic users and sufficiently developed psychics can go toe-to-toe with you... and they will... probably in considerable numbers. (... and you will eventually tick them off as you wipe out large sections of society for being stupid... :P)

Come to think of it... that was very similar to explaining to her that while her Ailuromancer could call up an army of cats to raid the kitchens... that's a considerable threat to the masquerade and will attract unwanted attention... ... ... seriously, just teleport the stuff you want to you subtly instead.

Anyway, sadly, I did not think of that reply and just replied with "No. Also, who is this?"... they never replied. ::)

Delling appears to have a stalker. :P An unknown number texted him while we were having lunch yesterday, asking if we were on a date. :P
I hope you replied with "HELP ME SHE HAS A GUN"? :P
HE SO SHOULD HAVE! :D But they might have confiscated my drugs if they'd turned up and asked to see my purse. And that would have been bad. :P

Come to think of it... that was very similar to explaining to her that while her Ailuromancer could call up an army of cats to raid the kitchens... that's a considerable threat to the masquerade and will attract unwanted attention

Ooh, are you playing Vampire: the Masquerade? :D I've played the videogame version. And wait there's a game where you can be an Ailuromancer? I must play! :o

I'm converting a webcomic project that never took off into a tabletop RP setting. Mancers, dragons, and magic are things there... dangerous things, dragons in particular.

And from what I've gathered, the masquerade is the collection of magical families and the fronts they have to keep people from finding out. :P

I like to conquer writer's block by re-writing other people's work and calling it fan fiction (at least publicly, privately I usually call it "improved" :P)

This is still win. :P

Err... sorry, that's pretty much it. After that whole witch trials, inquisition... thing, the magical society in this setting has decided that secrecy was the best option (it was that or ... possibly wiping out a significant number of people... but being fairly established in society with some standing, that just wouldn't do).

Makes sense. Plus this gives you a morality/control system of sorts: players acting out craaazy and being too overt with their powers will get slapped down by the Masquerade police or something, I presume?

With a name like Lace Mamba, I can't exactly be surprised that they turned out to be venomous.

Poisonous snakes, if you will.
If only they'd had a Cedric to warn them. :(

Erin (our Dhampir rogue): How do we know you are who you say you are?
Saddok: Look at the crowd behind me.

"OH MY!" she'd exclaim, as I pulled out my giant boxed copy of the King's Quest Collection.  She'd marvel at the many versions of Mixed Up Mother Goose that I'd lay before her, and swoon over the many ways I could spell the name "Rumplestiltskin."

"Backwards!  Forwards!" she'd cry, squealing with impassioned glee.

"Baby, you ain't seen nothing yet--BACKWARDS ALPHABET."  And then BAM!  She'd be screaming in ecstasy.
