Haven't started playing T&T yet, but will get to it soon I hope.
I actually kinda don't really like the graphics for Layton vs. AA.. Like you said, the cartoon-ish look is such a big part of both games' atmosphere, so I would've hoped they could find some middle ground between the two visual styles rather than just make it all 3D. But anyway, the gameplay is what defines both of the games so as long as the gameplay is good I might give this one a go... As soon as I've finished all the other games of both series...
As for Boardwalk Empire's new season, I haven't seen the last episode (E03) yet. But so far, this season is looking to build up to some friggin' awesome stuff! And I'm loving that Chalky White is getting more screen-time.
I'm definitely getting excited to see how the whole big conflict of Nucky, the Commodore, Jimmy, Eli and all is going to turn out. I don't really know who to cheer for, either. But that's the best part, all we can do is sit back and see what happens, and be thrilled either way it goes!
Hey, Orgz! How are you?
Since your last singing vost, I wanted to ask you:
- How long have you been playing the guitar?
- Have you been going to lessons?
- Did you learn to sing by yourself?
- ]What are your favorite bands?
- What is the brand of your guitar/s?
- If distance wasn't a problem, would you want to be in a band with me? xD
Edit: Oops... didn't notice how the numbers turned out. xD

Woo, list of questions! I never get these!
- Errr... Hard to say, really. I guess a few years, just messing around with it. I've never really practiced playing the guitar, just kinda played when I felt like it or while doing something else (watching TV, like) and I guess over time I've gradually gotten better.
- Nope. I took saxophone lessons when I was like 8-12, and bass guitar lessons at school for three years (which I often skipped and found dreadfully boring the last two years, but still) but no guitar lessons.
- Yes. I guess. Unless I have to give credit to the singers in all the music I've ever listened to.
- That definitely varies.. I used to put Led Zeppelin as my #1 absolute favorite band and I still find them to be way up there, but I've realized that a lot of the bands I usually call my favorites, I haven't listened to in forever.
... So, since I'm currently in chill-out mode, I guess for my favorite bands/artists right now, they're: Bon Iver (first album), Ray Lamontagne, The Tallest Man On Earth, Fleet Foxes, James Vincent McMorrow, Gregory Alan Isakov, and a lot more.
- One acoustic and one electric, the ones I currently have are one Tanglewood Sundance and a Gibson ES-335. My dad buy, renovate and sell guitars, though, so I often have access to more than those. But he usually doesn't have anyones in that are better than mine.
- Hell yeah, totally!

What's the latest film you've seen?
I went to see both The Lion King and Don't Be Afraid of the Dark on sunday; Lion King was expectedly awesome and bought back memories of growing up and the Disney era. DBAD was ridiculous, I didn't understand wtf was going on in that film and finding out Katie Holmes was in that film already put it in a handicap in my mind. The ending didn't explain much or settle any questions either. Shame really, it had such potential from the way it started
Orgz, I'm sorry but... You sound so cool!
xD No, seriously, I thought that you learned the guitar by yourself, but... o.o You learned it by "just messing around with it"? That's totally cool. xD
And your dad renovates guitars! You also seem to have a very nice taste in music. ^^
So how about you be my solo guitarist one day! And singing together would be awesome. Oh, I'm in dream land again. xD
I guess the latest movies (that I hadn't watched before) I watched are the ones I last posted about in The Movies Thread. After that I've been continuing my rewatch of Paranoia Agent and started watching The Boondocks. Also watched the older "pre The Avengers"-movies, starting with Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk (gonna watch Iron Man 2 and Captain America next, so I've watched them all) and of course keeping up with Boardwalk Empire, Dexter, The Walking Dead, HIMYM and TBBT. So yeah, haven't really watched any new movies lately. But totally getting psyched about Tintin, so that's probably the next big one I'm gonna watch!
But yeah, mostly I just learned from playing while doing other stuff. Or like, "jamming unconsciously" to music while listening. I mean, I guess that's practice in a way, but I've never had the patience to "try to get better" at the guitar and thus I haven't really tried to increase my skills by practicing. That's pretty much what I mean.
Yeah, he does. He's been kinda slow on that front lately, though. Me and him have been making custom harmonicas as well, but that's been going kinda slow as of late since he's been building a guest/music house. But it's really nice to have all these different brands of guitars, basses and amps and stuff available.
Hey, I'd be totally on board if it was possible! Although I haven't played a lot of lead guitar so I might have to polish those skills a bit. But hey, I'm totally game!
I'll try and watch Tintin the day it comes out in 3D; I'm psyched too dude! should be fun
As for my dreams/goals... that's never really been my thing. And I know people say all the time that you should "live in the present, live now, don't worry about the future", but that has come a bit too naturally for me and now that I actually need to start making life-deciding choices (okay, exaggerating a bit, but still), I don't know what the hell to do. So for now I'm just trying to get a somewhat well paid job until I figure out what to with my life... And I've actually currently got a good chance to get a foot in the door at a music store just a little bit away from where I live, so I might even get to do something fun! Here's hoping!
RANDOM POST ENDING: Finally figured out the tuning for this song so I could learn it. One of my favorite artists, I saw him in August and he was friggin' amazing. Ah, anyway, I recommend learning it. It's fun to play and I, at least, like it a lot:
Now. Oh my god
Where can I listen to your vosts? Is there a thread <_<
You don't know? Go there and vost nao! DO IT NAO!
Unfortunately, the first like 30 pages worth of vosts are invalid now, since Vocaroo removes everything when it's been on there for too long.. But yeah, you can still listen to the most recent conversation... If you feel like it. (It's really quite tiresome.)
But yeah. Arkham City. I needs tah have it!!! Probably won't afford it for a while either, so might put it on my list to Santa.
(So long until then, though. I want it noooow!)

Arkham City is out here on Friday, Tintin is out next Wednesday, I've already booked my day off and just need to find a movie buddy
So you are a Batman fan orgz?
I'm going to to friend of mine who got the game today, can't wait to play it hope it will be as awesome as the last one
and you should vost again
*changes the water and the paper*
I watched SubZero but didn't find it worth buying. Also
downloadedlegally borrowed from a friend () the new direct-to-video animated movies; Gotham Knight, Under The Red Hood and Year One. The first two weren't as good as the 90's animated stuff, but Year One was actually really friggin' great! (of course, it's adapted from one hell of a graphic novel!)
I wouldn't call myself a hardcore fan, though. When it comes to comics, I've read the Knightfall saga, A Death in the Family, Year One, The Long Halloween, The Man Who Laughs, The Killing Joke, Hush and some other story arcs.. So yeah, I guess I'm a fan but not a really hardcore fan who've read every single Batman comic. After all, I'm more of a movie and TV person.
