Don't like the snow? You can make a bookmark with the following text instead of a url: javascript:snowStorm.toggleSnow(). Clicking it will toggle the snow on and off.
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Goddamnit, here's yer [chat]

    I'm one of those people who flips a pillow over because I <3 the cold side of the pillow.

    every person who doesn't like an acquired taste always seems to think everyone who likes it is faking it. it should be an official fallacy.

    I want to agree with that because usually starting around the scene where the woman with pesci compliments the performer and everyone is all disgusted I start to completely hate the characters. But I do like The Godfather plenty, although I don't know how much it's the same thing.

    The Godfather is more of its own thing. It's like opera or Shakespeare, with grand themes and drama and plots and betrayals, and it's all done with incredible class and taste. Goodfellas is based on the dude's real-life autobiography and is about mobsters the way they actually are/were, with the dudes being really inarticulate and uneducated and violent and their lives not being epic tragedies but just kind of sordid and disgusting.

    The Godfather takes place in beautiful mansions with dark hardwood, smoky sitting rooms adorned with paintings by Caravaggio and everyone wearing crisp dark suits all the time. Goodfellas takes place in crappy Jersey suburbs where the couches are covered in plastic and everyone wears pastels.

    I used to soak rags and pillow covers in water and throw them in the freezer.

    My immense body heat made quick work of them. And this was back when I was little and had a near buzzcut.

    yeah, I didn't feel like it was the same thing but I figured I should cover my ass in the conversation :P

    It's a pillow with one of those soft icepacks inside so it stays cold.

    I love that comic.

    I saw the guy at Comic-Con, but I was scared to go up, being barely out of high school. It seemed like "Yeah, I graduated high school this year and I love your comic about college!" would be vaguely like saying "Yeah, you're ancient!", so I walked away.

    I did meet Stan Bush, though. And shook his hand.

    Also: The internet has worn down my ability to question why something was done into a tiny nubbin.

    Pillows with icepacks could change the world forever.

    Italics is the next logical step, I agree.

    Italians, on the other hand, are never the next logical step.

    It has been a long time since I read it, but if I remember correctly
    Spoiler:

    Again, though, it has been about 7 years since I had this argument. But that is what I remember at the moment.

    Define "enjoy".

    I read novels and do not begrudge the time spent reading them.
