Dear LF,
Posted by XIV 7 years ago
Since I've joined (or lurked around) your mighty crew, i have been party to many a few shifts in the general structure, content, and community of the site. From my limited hindsight into its past, as well as a more cohesive view of its present and future, I can safely say linkfilter is quite possibly one of the most perfect sites on the net. The right mixture of links, the varied levels of comments (from the hilarity and succinctness of LFM, AB, fuzzydave, crat and foop to the gods honest brilliant comments from the likes of dyskolos, J2K, and too many others to mention), and the blips of communion in the chatter that i'm able to catch from time to time, makes for a site that I've always visited in my bookmarks for 5 years running. Thanks for being a microcosm of the awesomeness of the internet, boiled down to about 50-75 people. All of you fsckin rock.
Yet another new video!

Everyone needs to see this, now. You can not only find it on DVD, but on Netflix watch instantly as well as every other video on demand service. It's really, really, really fucking good.

The first video off No Control has DEBUTED!  
 
MUUUUUUUUUUUHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
To make my feelings concise:
Posted by XIV 8 years ago
Quoted from my friend:  
 
The trouble is when you try to judge him, good or bad, there's very few people who's life compares to the one that he lead, there's no modern precedent. I don't think anyone can really understand him. I've always thought he deserved the benefit of the doubt, because of how weird life must have been for him. What a strange perspective he must have had. As a musician the guy has very few equals, and as a human being - he was one of a kind.  
 
The people who take joy in slandering him, or mocking him, or present second hand information as fact are just ugly individuals who need to find a better use of their time. Listen to what his music was about and try and find fault with his message. He wrote powerful, influential music with a positive message in hopes the world would become a better place for all.
NOW i get it.

The axe has dropped
Posted by XIV 8 years ago
An email from the manager with no subject drops in the inbox, expressing sorrow and veiled professionalism. I look around, seems there's about 10 less people then there's supposed to be. And XIV is still standing pretty in the aftermath. Regret and sorrow mixed with a slight dash of relief/jubilation fills the room. I shall purchase a 40 and pour it out for my fallen cubemonkey brethren...

XIV's Keytar Design Challenge!!!
Posted by XIV 8 years ago
 
 
YOU, yes, YOU can have your idea/artwork forever emblazoned upon XIV's weapon of choice. Link to gigantor .png with transparency below for use in your favorite image manipulator. This ain't the real thing (the template will be WAY bigger), but if it's cool enough who knows, might be what I decide to seal to it for eternity...so please, even if the end result is utterly retarded, give it a shot. The more, the better. If you come up with something supremely obscene, best email it to me at the addy below as opposed to putting it in the comments...no one wants to see goatse coming from the D-Beam during a casual NCS, but god damn if I won't give it serious consideration.  
 
Keytar Template (no idea how to hotlink the actual size pic, always defaults to 800x600 with gol durn photobucket...but if for some reason you don't get the full sized, i can e-mail it upon request from xivspew at gmail d00t com)

awwwwwwww yeah. Looks like XIV found a new multiplayer fascination, better than counter-strike/TF2 OR pretty much any multiplayer game i've played in a long, long time. Anyone that has a 360 and wishes to shoot thousands of zombies in the face, by all means add XivSpew to your f-list. w00t sir.

It's amazing what you can find in my grandma's spine when they miss broken pieces of her first brace over the next 3 surgeries within 10 years. There's a REALLY long metal one I didn't want to take a pic of for fear of grossness.

So my old, favorite Giger-y canesword was broken in a theater production accidentally, so my friend got me a replacement, and i daresay it's even better:

The handle is gorgeous, and it's just the right weight/length...it's even sharp, unlike your average costume blade. And, i believe this is the first canesword that I could really use day-to-day as a cane, if i needed to. Oh, and since I forgot to post this at some point, my favorite pistol crossbow:
