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!

    Yes sir

    I mean just the album Thriller alone redeems the entire 80s. I can't imagine what it must feel like to reach your unquestionable peak at 24, and know you're going to spend the rest of your life playing catch-up.

    Only thing good that happened this decade was all the sweet ass movies and games. Everything else sucked. Which I guess always holds true that real life blows and it's only the entertainment that makes it bearable.

    Mr. Banballow was so badly maimed, he turned into a hideous monster, oozing and bleeding, snarling and growling like a beast---enraged and bent on revenge. He tracked down the kids responsible for the fire and killed them one by one----with a blowtorch. That wasn't enough for Banballow. He won't leave his inn or his memories, so there he waits....in ambush....

    I like ass movies too. I've never bothered with ass games though - that stuff can stay in Japan if you ask me.

    I'd be far too upset about being part of the most successful pop groups of the earlier decade and sleeping six to a bed.

    And every money-grubbing unscrupulous brat trying to get into my money in the next decade.

    But that's beside the point.

    Thing I hated: The sudden sainthood of Michael Jackson the moment he died.

    Too those people I would like to say:

    "He was still the same guy you made fun of, the day before he died! The only thing that changed was him dying and you gaining a ugly case of necrophilia."

    Were there any good terms for the 1900s besides "turn of the century"?

    I bet people in 1909 were thinking "This sucks, what are we going to call this decade? Oh well. At least we've got a hundred more years to come up with something before it happens again."

    We've let them down, you guys. We've let them all down.

    Okay. Okay. We still have eleven days we can do this. There must be some kind of blog that's doing a sweepstake on what would be an appropriate name. Andrew Sullivan, for example - this kind of stuff is exactly his kind of bag. That, and disliking the fuck out of Sarah Palin.

    Yes, right, but by the Gregorian calender or some crap the decade doesn't end until the beginning of 2011. Doesn't really matter IMO.

    Mr. Banballow was so badly maimed, he turned into a hideous monster, oozing and bleeding, snarling and growling like a beast---enraged and bent on revenge. He tracked down the kids responsible for the fire and killed them one by one----with a blowtorch. That wasn't enough for Banballow.

    no, it doesn't.

    2010 is the tenth year of the decade, just like 2000 was the 10th year of the nineties. The ten year period won't be complete until the tenth year is over.

    we're going to have to have this argument every ten years now, aren't we?

    Yeah, but no one thinks that way, we just live with the idea that the first year of the decade 1 BC - 9 AD was 1 BC because whatever.

    2000 wasn't the 10th year of the 90's. It was the start of the new millenium. The 90's took place from 1990-1999, just as the '00's took place from 2000 to 2009.

    in cultural terms (which is really the only reason we have this discussion), the previous decade continues for a year or so into the next one anyway. If you went back in time to 1990 you'd think you were in the 80s.

    I'm starting a new calendar that begins today

    today is the start of Year A

    next year is Year B

    the year after is Year C and so on and so forth until we reach Z, and then we will start at Year AA, and then AB, etc. etc.

    there will be no decades or centuries, only Alphabets

    today is Year A, Alphabet A

    10 months was cool I will grant

    but 36 day months with 10-day weeks is unwieldy.

    Did they take the remainder of the days as, like, free days at the end of the year? I don't really remember.
