Title: The Slightly Random but still good for creative reasons thread.
Post by: Seer Fox on April 11, 2007, 03:56:54 am
Hey guys, I thought that it would be good to put a thread up based on a writing experiment that was done in my creative writing class. It tends to help when you're just struggling to write, or you think you just can't write anything, or can be done just for fun.

Basically, you are given a word, an object, such as 'balloon', and then, for five minutes and using this as your starting point, just...write. Let it go where you mind tells it to. It doesn't have to be related to the original article at all, just write whatever comes into your head at the time, and then when your time is up, stop, and then give a word for the next guy to follow up on.

It's very simple, and lo, I shall step up to show you how to do this. Our starting word is...Table.


A table is like a machine. Well it isn't, but that's what Gaia says. Stupid Gaia. Stupid little flashing blue and orange box that is TOTALLY PUTTING ME OFF RIGHT NOW. But yeah, like a machine, which me and my friends constantly mock whenever possible. I wonder if it's going to stop flashing on its own...I know if I open it it'll just start flashing again.

Wahey! A new paragraph! I'm glad I went to the toilet before I wrote this, otherwise I'd be saying I NEEED the toilet all the flash flash GODDAMN FLASH!!! Okay, I'll check it out...just Rict jabbering on. On to the giant hammer that would much prefer to be a hammer...I guess being giant isn't a good thing in hammerworld; maybe there's a shortage of giant nails? Man, he's still going into the very green of the sky. Our English teacher once said 'It's one reflecting into the other' when he was talking about the ocean and the sky, not realising how retarded he sounded. "The ocean is looking very cloudy today sir." We said.

Chortle chortle. Guffaw. I think I liked Roger the Dodger, that Watson fellow and those little...ah those little guys who lived in that boys head the most. Beano's and Dandy's...I got the 50th anniversary album somewhere, and they cost FAR TOO MUCH nowadays. And where the hell did he get that car from? The balloon? Why hasn't Dennis been incarcerated yet? That car in the adverts is cool. Deception. DECEPTICONS, RETREAAATT!!! Poor Decepticons. I doubt they're going to do any better in the up and coming movie either. And Venow won't. Mary Jane will most likely be paid in **** DOLLAR$!!! Heh heh. Funny Spiderman. Hey, it's just turned a plain orange now. He must've stopped posting. Insanity is such a brief and fleeting thing really, as Law and Order proved last week when they gave that guy an anti-psychosis drug.

He commited suicide shortly afterwards. Life sucks, neh?



Okay, that'll do. The next person's word is....Duck.


Ciat,
Seer Fox

Sounds fun, I'll give it a shot.

Ducks are annoying.  Always flapping there wings around, and making noise.  Making noises like quack, or whark.  Speaking of the word Whark, I like to make that noise, and so to some extent I like ducks.  But back to the word Whark, I like saying it when I got nothing better to say.  One day I want to go to a mall or some other public place and just yell Whark really really loud.

Speaking of malls, who decides where to build malls?  And who pays the bills for them?  They aren't government own facilities are they?  I never understood why people find hanging at the mall interesting.  Oh wow walking around the mall talking and all that jazz.  I'm sure that we could find a better place to hang out and talk at.  Of course, if you just want to go shopping, why don't you call it shopping and not hanging at the mall?

That's 5 minutes of writing.  Next word shall be...Roof!

Post by: Insomniac on April 11, 2007, 03:24:31 pm
All right.  I'm not one to ignore a challenge.  I apologize for quality...I'm making this up as I go.  ;)

I love being on the roof.  The higher the better.  You can see so much more from on high and the world looks so different.  Everything seems small and insignificant spread out before you.  I like that feeling.  The wind has a chance to grip you, unfettered by your surroundings and you can feel the sun on your skin, instead of milling about in shadow.

As I look down over the ground below me, my worries seem less pressing.  The fact that my wife left me for her boss...well, she's the equivalent to one of specks down there.  My eviction notice?  Bah, I can see countless homes from here, each more interesting than the last.  And being fired today?  Well, I'm on their roof right now.  They are beneath me, quite literally.

So many little dots moving around below; it's such a fascinating mosiac of humanity, coursing through the city streets.  But in all reality, I am one of those little specs while someone looks down from their roof.  Tiny and insignificant.  And if I just lean forward a little bit, I will hurry and join with them all...

Meh...passable I suppose.  Next word is "cheese".

J.

Tsk tsk Sildy, you aren't actually supposed to PLAN what you're putting down, so unless you think of such whimsies all the time, that counts as an INSTANT FAIL. It also doesn't matter if it's good or not.


Cheese, gROMIT! Oh ****, I went and caps that the wrong way. Ah well. But I remmber the episode where they went to the moon and it was made of cheese. Other than the movies, the episodes weren't very long. Penguins. You know, web ghosts penguin comic was pretty damn good, all things considered, certainly better than most anything I've seen in the more taverny boards as regards webcomics.

It'd be nice to be able to do a webcomic. I'd need a graphics tablet though, and they ain't cheap. I'm halfway competent at sketches. Sinclair is the one I'm working on right now; seems I've taken to drawing all these side characters. Poor Therne. But it's all making progress like my can collection...man, I must have one hundred of 'em by now. I'll need help to turn them into an Art Attack, just like Niel Buchanan...or however you spell his name. PVA GLUE!!! F'ing lifesaver, I'm sure you'll all agree. Has this been five minutes yet? I have no idea, so lets go for another sentence or so, shall we?

I need a shower.


Next word: Apple

Post by: pink monkey bird on April 12, 2007, 03:57:14 pm
apple

apples are a polite fruit, they are very useful in cooking and taste reasonable, in every single possible way they are better than mangos. mangos are EVIL, trust me on this, I hate mangos i hate the way the smell and taste, i hate their texture and look, i even think the mango tree is bloody ugly, but the biggest problem with mangos is they effect your mind, they can block out things, make you do things that you don't want to do. LIKE EAT MANGOS, seriously everytime i walk past a bit of mango i pick it up and eat it, every time, despite knowing full well i despise mango's, i seriously believe that one in every 50 mango's is poisonous, and they are trying to take over the world, i have been lucky so far, but let the warning go out. DON'T eat mangos.

next word, snorkel.

Post by: Tau Worlock on April 14, 2007, 11:28:19 am
Snorkel is wellÖ a snorkel, since Iím not under water I have no idea why am writing this other than as a reply to pmbs post. This kind of reminds me of a thread on the old site where Sildarax gave three words and one had to use all of them before giving three more words.

Back to where we started, snorkels are long tubes used to breath when one has difficulty breathing water, or should that be swallow water.  Also for some reason tanks have them. Why a tank would go swimming is beyond me, arenít they to heavy. I think my 5 min is almost up so time o find use a spell checker or is it spellchecker?

Next word: eared


Title: Re: The Slightly Random but still good for creative reasons thread.
Post by: Seer Fox on April 14, 2007, 01:45:06 pm
Eared? EARED?! Is that even a word? 'Procrastination' is a word (a damn fine word at that)...but EARED? I can't think of a single instance of eared-ness. What madness this be.

I'm feeling hungry. Maybe I should go downtown and get a pasty. I have some sorta thing where I have no idea what I'm saying anymore, and I should probably get on with writing something constructive, or eared (there, I gave it a meaning), like more RPG rules or some of my coursework, but nooooooooooooo I'm jabber-jawing away at this.

There was a guy in jabberjaw who was like shaggy, I think. Shaggy was my favourite Scooby Doo character, so I have no idea why AAHH MY NECK IS ACHING!! Serves me right, I guess.

Next word: Spelunking


Ciat,
Seer Fox


Title: Re: The Slightly Random but still good for creative reasons thread.
Post by: Tau Worlock on April 16, 2007, 01:35:15 pm
Spelunking, I have never heard of this word what dose it mean?
Back to Eared the spellchecker does not complain about it so it is a word Seer, though what it means escapes me, maybe something with ear. Spelunking
Spell an king? Or the spellcheckers says spelunk is a word so ing was just the act of doing whatever it is; maybe itís your coursework Seer.
You know its been very sonny lately we might even get some spring soon. Onions anybody?
No? Thatís a shame Iíll just eat them then.

Next word: Foxhunting   


Title: Re: The Slightly Random but still good for creative reasons thread.
Post by: Seer Fox on April 17, 2007, 06:07:23 am
...You bastard.

Next word: Tau-mutha-fuckin'-Worlock-Hunting



Ciat,
Seer Fox


Title: Re: The Slightly Random but still good for creative reasons thread.
Post by: Tau Worlock on April 17, 2007, 10:47:43 am
Thatís not a word. But here goes Seer says ďTau-mutha-fuckin'-Worlock-HuntingĒĒ
Ok so I picked a bad word but that is a bit of an extreme reaction after all who would go to the effort of hunting me, Iím not edible as far as I know and I havenít got any fur that can be sold. Also would the hunter not get an asbo (sp?) and when Iím dead would that count as murder? I know it would the case if anybody killed Seer.

Any way the weather is wrong for hunting and if I remember correctly so is the season (except maybe for pheasants)

Next word: session


Title: Re: The Slightly Random but still good for creative reasons thread.
Post by: jazen on May 01, 2007, 07:36:00 pm
Session
A session of time, time where you do 1 thing, or try... concentration is low - occasionally, often.
This is a session I guess, a session where I am doing little, or little that I am supposed to.
Session, sitting of court, wander what they might be discussing - our lives, what gives people a right to decide right from wrong anyway?
Session, school term, school lessons, necessary much as some hate the things.
Now I've probably finishd my 5 mins, and I dout any of it makes sense.
Next word: Freedom


Title: Re: The Slightly Random but still good for creative reasons thread.
Post by: Tau Worlock on May 02, 2007, 10:24:33 am
Freedom? Does that actually exist or is it all an illusion of the vast machine trying to controlled us trough a Panopticon system where non know whos is the Guard and who the guarded or who is anybody at all.
What dose it mean? The joice of eleven types of toootpast? Or is it something to do with what one thinks and says, but that to is no free, with all the regualtions of today, and political corectnes whil good in princeble is nolonger fredom for efrybody. It is no more than the elosion of the Panopticon where the guard has gone to lunch.

Next word: Panopticon (just to see if anybody knows what it means)


Title: Re: The Slightly Random but still good for creative reasons thread.
Post by: jazen on May 02, 2007, 04:17:07 pm
Prisons, watching.
Are we forever imprisoned, never free to do anything without our every move being watched,
 
Or are some people just overly suspicious.
But then again we could live in a Truman Show type reality, the whole world spying on me - or you, or him.
But are we realy that selfish that we could believe such a thing of the rest of the world, that the world could revolve around us.

Control, does anyone have the right to control others? can anyone control us, or do we like to think that others could be blamed for the things we have done wrong - or have we, was it her or him or both of them or neither.
Should we spy on others, and talk about them behind their backs.
Watching, spying on prisoners.

I could go on for hours but I think my time is up.
Next word - lets stop being so dreary:  love


Title: Re: The Slightly Random but still good for creative reasons thread.
Post by: Seer Fox on May 02, 2007, 06:16:30 pm
IT'S THE SWEETEST THING. Probably. U2 thought so. Am I allowed to use the numer '2' in these things? Shoud I be writing 'two' instead? Who knows? Not I, not I at all. E-ally all.

A new sentence, and a little glowing orange box that I keep mis-spelling. It's a good job I write on this but not a typewriter, eh? Ah yes, love. Lovity lovity love-love-love. In my opinion (and I know I'm not alone in this), there was far too much love in Episode III (Do I have to say three?), and not enough of anything else. Seriously, the script made even the best of actors look like gormless idiots. Looked nice though.

I can't help but feel I have somewhat strayed from the message of the content of the giant spindly legged conscruct that lives in a pint glass which WOULDN'T GO OUTSIDE. I kept it there for four days and four nights, without food nor drink. I hope it's okay...more than that, I hope it doesn't come back to my room, the little ****.


Next word: Spider.


Ciat,
Seer Fox


Title: Re: The Slightly Random but still good for creative reasons thread.
Post by: jazen on May 02, 2007, 06:41:57 pm
Spider, an arachnid, 8 legged creature. An animal, Black Widow sounds creepy.
I'm staring at on right now - a spider not a Black Widow, at least I don't think it is a Black Widow, It's trapped between the picture and the glass on the photo above my computer. It's been there for months , I think its dead - I hope its dead, it would be freaky if it moved. I wander what it died of, how it got there.
What do you think of spiders I wander, I just thought of the one in the forest at Hogwarts - Aragog and that on in Lord of the Rings, whats its name, the one that nearly eats Frodo, doesn't matter at the moment I guess.
Oh and there is that riddle - you know the one, about the person who lives in disguies, telling nothing but lies, then the middle of middle and the end of end, and of course, the sound often heard when trying to think of a hard to find word.
Times up, next word: magic


Title: Re: The Slightly Random but still good for creative reasons thread.
Post by: pink monkey bird on May 02, 2007, 09:17:58 pm
ah now, magic, thats the thing, thee is nothing in the world that gives you more depression than the thought that, for the most part, magic, true magic doesn't exist, voodoo is different, and tarot and palm reading, all the rest of it, it isn't real magic, the sort that allows you to fly the sort that can instantaneously change a desert into a flowing river. i say it doesn't exist, i mean of course, that it doesn't exist anymore, for (like dragons) magic is a common myth, people with the ability to do things outside the laws of nature and science appear in every mythology and legend in every civilisation current and passed, from merlin, to the chinese sages, to the aztec high priests to the native american witch doctors, there is magic, prophecy and supernatural in every culture, magic did exist, for such a wide and seperated group to share such imagination is near impossible, so all we need to do is find whatever secrets we lost and once again the world can see it's true potential,

next word, firework.


Title: Re: The Slightly Random but still good for creative reasons thread.
Post by: Tau Worlock on May 03, 2007, 09:17:51 am
Fireworks

They the things that go up in the air an fog boom, a bit like a mortar then, except maybe the bratty colours, unless one is colour blind, then it is just so many lights raining form the sky, rain of fire, the end of the world. Or is that tomorrow?
The first use of fire works was by the Chinese, blackpowder come t o think about it was original invented on a quest to find an elixir of life so that the mad can live forever.

Next word: longer


Title: Re: The Slightly Random but still good for creative reasons thread.
Post by: jazen on May 03, 2007, 09:24:55 am
Longer
Longer, more of something, more of what? Time? Why? What for?
Though I guess 5 minutes isnít long. 10 minutes is quite a short time also. Eternity Ė eternity for what, to live? But why? What use is eternity if no-one else has it? None at all really?
Longer is just relative anyway Ė everything is relative in its own way.
Next word: relative


Title: Re: The Slightly Random but still good for creative reasons thread.
Post by: pink monkey bird on May 03, 2007, 10:09:58 pm
relative? a second is realative to time, time is realtive to mortality, if we lived for ever a centuary and a second would effect us the same way, everything is relative to ebverything else, and most importantly everything is elative to oneself, things effect people in different ways, everything is relative, my uncle for example he is relative, sorry bad joke there, talking of bad jokes i was watching an eddie izzard dvd earlier, now he is madder than we are (even seer fox) and gets away with it because he say's it's just an act, if we did it we'd be put away but it's normal for him, everything is relative, anyway running out of time so next word, i'll give you a choice,

"cake"

or "death"

(sorry couldn't resist)


Title: Re: The Slightly Random but still good for creative reasons thread.
Post by: jazen on May 03, 2007, 10:53:02 pm
cake or death?
To write about or in real life? Eeither way,
whenever you bake a cake you have to lick the bowl - its the whole reason you make a cake in the first place.
They are delicious things and can be made for any reason, specially decorated ones for birthdays or just random I need something to do, so i'm going to cook a cake.
Chocolate cakes are best, but i'm probably biased, ice cream cakes are interesting, lemon cakes can be tasty, carrot cakes are a good way to trick my sis into eating veg - or used to be she no longer falls for it.
Now all that thinking about cake has made me hungry, when I have finished writing this I may just go and raid the cake tin for one of the little cakes that my sis made with smarties on the top, and chocolate icing - or I may go for the fruit cake, both are good - one is healthy for my body, the other is great for my mind, and makes me feel happy.

Next word: equality


Title: Re: The Slightly Random but still good for creative reasons thread.
Post by: Tau Worlock on May 04, 2007, 11:00:22 am
There was no equality there. What about the beetroot cake?
I donít suppose she made some of those. Any way on to equality and the lack of it since the world is going to end tomorrow I donít suppose it dose not matter as much that there is no equality in the world. What with all those people in the third world starving and you eating cake. Come to think of it I want one as well.

Next word: Why
(or for Seer ĎWhy not?í)


Title: Re: The Slightly Random but still good for creative reasons thread.
Post by: jazen on May 04, 2007, 03:29:23 pm
Why? why what?
Why do weekends have to be so long? Why do exams have to be so hard?
Why, one of the wise men, Who What Where When How and Why, although not the odd one out at first he is the hardest to answer - all the others the answer is normally obvious, e.g. who? Jazen, What? posting womething, Where? Original Writing Forum, When? Now - 15:25 on the 4th of May - a Friday (according to my computer), How? by typing into this box using a keyboard. Why? now that one is harder - the answer can't be found using my senses and looking at what is around me, as it is I think I know the answer (bcause I have nothing better to do, I want to, and it was sitting there calling to me, there may be more reasons but none that I am giving you).
So as you can see Why is difficult to answer, and the answer often can't be verified.
As it is my time is up.
Next word: smile


Title: Re: The Slightly Random but still good for creative reasons thread.
Post by: Tau Worlock on May 05, 2007, 10:26:17 am
Smile? SMILE? How can I smile on a day like this, the end of the world is here and you say SMILE? With no tomorrow and no hope?

Why oh why?
Jut one more question on the fly
the cake was just a bit too dry
how can one smile?
With raining fire
And boiling see
And you ask us to smile?
On day like this with two to go
Beyond the end of nevermore.

Next word: forevermore


Title: Re: The Slightly Random but still good for creative reasons thread.
Post by: jazen on May 05, 2007, 05:23:55 pm
forevermore,
I cannot wait until that day, where forevermore there will be no end, to when eternity is ours,
forevermore, forevermore an eternity with you,
forever means always and more just extends it,
nevermore means never again, forever more means for always, for ever and ever, eternity,

Next word: eternity


Title: Re: The Slightly Random but still good for creative reasons thread.
Post by: Seer Fox on May 06, 2007, 01:01:19 am
An eternity, it will take me that long to not be annoyed by such silly thoughts as the dude who did that thing I just read did when he chose this to be the topic. Laser flying angels like eternity because of the giant trogladytes which I can't spell, for they seldom live that long and the angels secretly hate them and try and use 'friendly fire' incidents to shoot them dead. The angels are currently deployed in IRAW.

It's like IRAQ, but with a spelling mistake. IRAW IS IWAR. 'The stunner! The STONE-COLD STUNNER!! STOP THE MATCH! STOP THE GOD-DAMN MATCH!!!'

Man, J.R. was a great commentator.

Next word: Lawsuit.


Ciat,
Seer Fox


Title: Re: The Slightly Random but still good for creative reasons thread.
Post by: jazen on May 06, 2007, 01:27:08 pm
lawsuit
hmm, can't think of much.
lets look at the word,
law, rules, society pushing down on us, telling us what to do. Trying to control us, by punishing us if we don't conform, law, it gives the people with power more power, the people with money get power, as long as they have enough, and the people without money, what do they get, oh, they get to be the scapegoats, they get the punishments.

suit, something you wear, normally for a formal occasion, unless it is a wet suit, in which case it is worn for water sports.
lets think,
lawsuit, why is it called that, do we wear them? not that I know of.

K, times up

Next word: time


Title: Re: The Slightly Random but still good for creative reasons thread.
Post by: Kentai on May 06, 2007, 05:01:55 pm
Time, it's what flies by as I sit here typing and listening to my music. Well, not music, I downloaded it and I could probably be sued for doing so but really it doesn't matter because I can delete it if I'm gonna get caught. But still, time.

Time is an illusion, lunchtime doubly so.

I love that book, radio/TV series and film. But mainly the radio version. It hasn't got much to do with time, but it's a damned good waste of a few hours. Now I'm spending some TIME thinking of a new word for the next poor soul who reaches this thread to ramble about. Somthing like...

Waffle.


Title: Re: The Slightly Random but still good for creative reasons thread.
Post by: jazen on May 06, 2007, 07:22:42 pm
Waffle,
I can't remember the last time we ate waffles,
food on the brain.
Right, lets see, I could sit here waffling on for 5 minutes or I could go and do something else.
Lets see...
Oh OK, this is a good song, and I can't be bothered to move.
Sorry, you're going to have to put up with me for a while,
or you could just scroll down to the end of my waffling to read the next word and give everyone something else to read.
Waffle,
I could right a story about waffle,
or not.
Or a poem,
lets see

Waffling
Away
For
Fear
Lets
End

OK not that good a whatever it is, it's a type of poem I think, but I can't remember the name for it, and it doesn't even make sense.

New song, equally brilliant,

Oooh, I think my time is up.

Next word: Fire


Title: Re: The Slightly Random but still good for creative reasons thread.
Post by: Kentai on May 06, 2007, 07:30:26 pm
Fire, oh how I love fire. I have this... obsession with it. I burn stuff lots when I'm bored. Fire is awesome, it burns, it can kill, or it can keep you alive. It cooks stuff, which is good, because that stuff tends to be food, and I like food, apart from fish. I don't like fish. But fire is good, yeah. I like fire. It's all light and bright and pretty and random and burney. Without fire we'd probably be extinct, or maybe still in a cave bashing rocks together and watching a spark achieve nothing as we put it on a wet floor. Or something similarly retarded. I wonder who first worked out how to make fire, and in what way they did it. I doubt they used matches. Oooh matches, I still have a burn mark on my finger from that match. Ah well, you're next word is Anus. Enjoy!


Title: Re: The Slightly Random but still good for creative reasons thread.
Post by: Seer Fox on May 07, 2007, 04:28:05 am
Anus, eh? The first word that immediately springs to mind is 'Xiou'. Don't know why that could POSSIBLY be, but it is. I like little girls and fondle them every night...would be something a **** would say. A practising ****, anyway. There's a marked difference between practicing and practising. I believe it's that practising involves doing something physically demanding, like football, and the other might just be technique or what have you. I dunno. I might have to look that up later.

I'm tired, but at the same time quite awake. I should go do something to do with Aarde. Or dig out those papers for some revision. It's Tuesday today, so I better get some done, yeah?

Next word: Pin


Title: Re: The Slightly Random but still good for creative reasons thread.
Post by: jazen on May 07, 2007, 11:17:23 am
Pin
useful and annoying, why?
lets see, useful because they can hold things to notice boards,
annoying because I keep on stepping on them and they hurt, lots.
Then again, they don't just hold things on noticboards, I pin things to my book case as well. Occasionally I pin things to picture frames - sometimes more pictures.

pins

perfectly
irritating
necessary
stationary

that sums them up pretty well.

Now your next word is...

flower


Title: Re: The Slightly Random but still good for creative reasons thread.
Post by: Tau Worlock on May 08, 2007, 02:16:02 pm
Flower
I donít know nothing about the flower
Flour I could do, thatís in cakes
But flower I could not know
For the garden of the mind is dying of thirst
I forgot to water all those thoughts again
And that is all my mind can say
as the time runs out on nevermore

Next word: seeing


Title: Re: The Slightly Random but still good for creative reasons thread.
Post by: jazen on May 08, 2007, 09:50:28 pm
Seeing, to see you have to be watching.
Often people look and don't realy take in what they are seeing.
Sometimes people don't want to acnoledge what their eyes are telling them,
Then again are we seeing what is going on in the world or are we just watching the sheet that has been pulled over our eyes belieing the story that is playing infront of us, because it is easier to watch and believe that than to search for, lt alone acnoledge, the truth.
Do our eys decieve us or does our mind just ignore the messages that our eyes send them, or is what we think we are seeing both what we are actually seeing and what is actually happening, without any adjustments.
My time is probably up, and there are things I need to get done,
so your next word is: Philosophy.


Title: Re: The Slightly Random but still good for creative reasons thread.
Post by: Tau Worlock on May 10, 2007, 08:51:18 am
Philosophy argument between complicated ideas over who, what, why, how we are (or possibly any and/or neither of the above/below) and any other ideas that might be hanging out in the mind of people with nothing better to do all day then argue with each other. (Oh wait thatís most of humanity any way)

There is to much to say and to much to know that not knowing seems like the safest path for the all knowing. (again).

Next word: studying

studying
I study, occasionally.
Studying is extremely important to pass exams.
However occasionally a break is required so that information can settle into the brain.
This is one such break.
Studying, revising, preparing for exams, learning the course. Practicing past papers. All are useful for passing the exams.
Studying is extremely useful, however equally useful is the next word.
REST or BREAK or RELAX

next word: paper


Title: Re: The Slightly Random but still good for creative reasons thread.
Post by: jazen on May 10, 2007, 07:22:48 pm
paper, i'm going to be sitting some of those soon,
why do they call it sitting? Although you do sit down you don't sit on the paper, though that would be easier than what you are supposed to do.
Paper however comes from trees, it is very interesting, paper is used for many different things, some enjoyable - such as paper airaplanes, some less so - like exam papers. Some useful - like instructions, som you can be proud of - like certificates.
Paper, books, those are great, what I would like to do right now is curl up with a book to read in front of a nice warm fire on a comfortable armchair with a lovely warm blanket and a cup of hot chocolat with a packet of chocolate digestives, mmmm....
However I have stuff to do, so have to go.
Next Word. rain

Rain rain go away
Donít come back another day

I left my arms at home again,
of course it had to rain.
Of course it had to rain today,
when I left my arms alone.

And now in building stay
The rain abandon ship and sky

Next word: Hellebore


Title: Re: The Slightly Random but still good for creative reasons thread.
Post by: jazen on May 12, 2007, 10:05:01 pm
hellebore,

My first thought was another word ending in 'ore' I will at some point look that up as a suffix to see what meaning it has.
Plural Helleborus,
Often grown for decorative purposes.
Can help summon demons, hmm, I wonder which ones, I might see if I can get hold of some.
Poisoness  according to some, hmm I definately want some of this, I might just experiment to see if thats true,
Can be good though,
sprouting snow from your tears? at least I would see some snow, we see it so rarely - although England did get some this year I guess.
Saving people from madness, hmm since when was that useful, madness is good for you - wait a moment why am I putting this under the good list.

Next word:  sporangiophore (yes I did just go and look for all words ending in ore and chose the longest in the given list)
Or if you don't want to do that then: llama


Title: Re: The Slightly Random but still good for creative reasons thread.
Post by: Tau Worlock on May 14, 2007, 02:47:51 pm
Sporangiophore

Fungus, poisonous in all likely hood, this reads like the second flow war, or maybe the first. Then again it was always the flowers in charge and not the fungi, what they have to do with llamas I have no idea but never mind.

I know itís a conspiracy of the llamas to poison everybody and rule the world
Or maybe not.

Next word: keywords


Title: Re: The Slightly Random but still good for creative reasons thread.
Post by: jazen on May 14, 2007, 04:48:44 pm
keywords
keys - unlock things.
words - what I am writing now, though if you didn't know that I am slightly shocked.
keywords are therefore words which will unlock things, like knowledge in my brain.
keywords are normally important words to do with a subject or topic.
sometimes keywords are actually keyphrases, as they are more than one word.
next word: demons

Post by: Kitsune Tsuki on May 15, 2007, 12:25:04 am
Have you ever met someone who actually believes in demons?  Like, think that they can actually come in a possess people.  My old religion teacher probably did.  He gave me a rosary once.  He also 'taught' us about things that I never want to hear from a priest.

Do they do screening when you become a priest?  You know, to make sure your not a closet Satanist, a **** or possessed by demons, or something along those lines.

One of the priests at my school rides a Harley, though I've never actually seen him on it.  How cool would that be, a priest motocycle gang?  What would they call themselves, 'Heaven's Angels'?

Next word: Angel

Post by: jazen on May 15, 2007, 10:14:30 pm
Angels,
beings from heaven,
beautiful,
often pictured as having wings
in the Bible deliver messages to servants of the Lord.
Some people on earth are angels in disguise,
As a wise person once said

Friends are angels who lift us to our feet when our wings have trouble remembering how to fly.

Post by: Tau Worlock on May 16, 2007, 09:32:49 am
Donít you mean the lack of sleep, thatís the only thing I can relate to that word right now. And I did not even start a new book last night.
Sleep is something one needs but I have never seen any in any shops on sale. So there is a entire market thatís untapped.

Next word: leading


Title: Re: The Slightly Random but still good for creative reasons thread.
Post by: pink monkey bird on May 16, 2007, 07:05:25 pm
leading is best done from the back, when all your orders are carried out but you are given no blame or danger, this doesn't always work of course but there is no harm in trying, if you find it hard leading people, try a donkey they will follow you anywhere.

You left out a next word so here is one at random ~ Worlock. Next Word: arrest


Title: Re: The Slightly Random but still good for creative reasons thread.
Post by: jazen on May 17, 2007, 09:06:14 am
Arrest
police can arrest people they take them and lock them in cells. Though if you want to avoid this
welcome one and all, oh and a point about insanity, if you are smart say you're insane, you're probably right anyway and:
A) the police can't hold you in a jail cell if you declare yourself insane as this compromises your mental health. and
B) psychiatric wards can't hold you because to declare yourself insane means you are sane enough to realise you have a problem and thus not insane enough to need medicle treatment.

so welcome to a place where 99% of us are insane and 99% of us are smart enough to declare it openly.
follow this example.

Next word: want

Post by: jazen on May 17, 2007, 02:58:55 pm
Girth, often relates to measurement, is also however a piece of equipment used in horse riding.
The girth of a box is 2 multiplied by (height + width) Ė the 2 smallest measurements.
Graphs also have girths, graphs with girths > or = to 4 are called triangle free.

Why can't the world on me for a change?  Is that too much to ask?

Post by: Tau Worlock on May 17, 2007, 03:10:05 pm
Child, children, noise, mess, sugar, no sleep. Thatís what comes to mind. But no more really. They make useful plot devises, readers wonít expect things from small children so they can be used in all sorts of ways

Next word: abrading


Title: Re: The Slightly Random but still good for creative reasons thread.
Post by: jazen on May 17, 2007, 03:51:19 pm

Post by: Tau Worlock on May 17, 2007, 03:56:21 pm
Chocolate made of coco, sugar, milk and other thing you rather not know about. Chocolate comes from middle and South America where it was originally the drink of royalty only, with neither sugar nor milk.
Then some idiot brought it to Europe and added milk, by coincidence this turned out to be a stroke of genius that killed the before mention idiot.
Next word: defy


Title: Re: The Slightly Random but still good for creative reasons thread.
Post by: jazen on May 18, 2007, 08:59:01 pm
Defy, to challange or go against. To resist command.

To defy passively is defying by not doing what you are told or to go against what you are being told in secret.

Post by: Kentai on May 23, 2007, 12:23:14 am
Spinning, the world does that sometimes, when I'm drunk, or high off some other intoxicating substance or another. It's fun, but makes a simple game of pool a real challenge. Anyway, yes, spinning, roundabouts do that, they make me ill after a while. I once had a BBQ on a roundabout, that was fun. What else spins? Well, lots of things... I suppose spinning is popular, or maybe just inevitable. Spinning. Like cheese in a microwave. Though that's more like rotating, spinning gives a sense of speed. Odd, that.

Next word: Gynecologist


Title: Re: The Slightly Random but still good for creative reasons thread.
Post by: Tau Worlock on May 23, 2007, 09:49:41 am
Gynecologist I have no idea what this means. Looked it up, was not exactly good to read about at this time of day, so back to spinning, the world spins or so I have been told. Or not.

Next Word: sad


Title: Re: The Slightly Random but still good for creative reasons thread.
Post by: jazen on May 24, 2007, 07:41:42 am
sad, a mood,to be unhappy or upset, if you are in this state for more than 2 weeks some may call you depressed.
to be expressive of sorrow.
"Better by far you should forget and smile, Than that you should remember and be sad" (Christina Rossetti).

As these tears run down my cheeks,
I wonder if this pain will ever end,
As my heart feels this pain,
And I feel torn in two,
Will this pain ever leave,

Will I ever smile with the joy I once did,
will I ever laugh or dance with happiness,
Could I ever forget this pain,
so deep,
I feel it would be easier to give in,

Or, will I live with it as a constant reminder
a reminder of what could have been,
will it strengthen me,
or destroy me,
this pain,
would it be better to forget,
or would I just repeat the lessons,
and feel this pain again?

Next word: joy



Title: Re: The Slightly Random but still good for creative reasons thread.
Post by: Tau Worlock on May 25, 2007, 11:50:47 am
joy????
Can we go back to sad, thatís a more interesting topic.

Ok ok (stop shouting) I will write about joy
Not that it is any joy to write about it.

So yes it one of those word that is only included in my vocabulary because its one of those 3 letter word that one get thought when one has a attention span of a 3 year old, oh hang on that would be because one was 3 years old.

Next Word: avouch



Title: Re: The Slightly Random but still good for creative reasons thread.
Post by: jazen on May 25, 2007, 12:00:50 pm
Avouch
can't find it on wikipedia so am just using my own mind for once,
I suspect it has something to do with vouching for people.
though the word is also not found by the Word thesaurus so I can't be certain
found it,
yup, to confirm something is one of the definitions.
Next word: spoof


Title: Re: The Slightly Random but still good for creative reasons thread.
Post by: Tau Worlock on May 25, 2007, 12:22:58 pm

Title: Re: The Slightly Random but still good for creative reasons thread.
Post by: Tau Worlock on May 30, 2007, 09:58:38 am
Pirates, robbers of the high sea, well the low sea if they are out of luck, and below the sea if they are really unlucky. Maybe if they got themselves a proper job then there would not be that risk. Then again some pirates where employed by governments to raid the ships of other countries.
I canít think of much more right now, or at least nothing related to pirates and so on. Breakfast might be a good idea about now. Anybody got some cornflakes? And some milk. A spoon and a bowl would be handy too but there not mandatory.

Next Word: incongruous


Title: Re: The Slightly Random but still good for creative reasons thread.
Post by: jazen on May 30, 2007, 10:06:58 am
incongruous, not matching or fitting,

it's interesting don't you think:
how hard some people try to fit in,
how some people just don't bother to try.

Next word: necessary


Title: Re: The Slightly Random but still good for creative reasons thread.
Post by: Tau Worlock on May 30, 2007, 10:14:49 am
Necessary now there is a word that trips me up, then again it is probably necessary to practise such words as necessary. Breathing is necessary so at times people seem to forget that, in fact they seem to forget a lot of things, such as what did they do last week, and how much was that pot of yoghurt?  1 or 1.09

Next Word: precipitation


Title: Re: The Slightly Random but still good for creative reasons thread.
Post by: jazen on June 04, 2007, 08:55:11 pm
precipitation,
you mean rain I take it, as in the stuff that falls from the sky, rather than what the ruler does from their far away throne, or the things that you use to control animals, or toddlers - though i have yet to learn of the difference,
or you could mean to move with haste, to move quickly and with speed rather than to dawdle.
you could mean the other stuff that falls from the sky, like hail - we've had a lot of that recently after all - or snow - that we haven't had for a few months - or even sleet.

Next word: missing


Title: Re: The Slightly Random but still good for creative reasons thread.
Post by: Tau Worlock on June 11, 2007, 10:02:52 am
Missing, absent, not there. Life in a dead body. Money in my account.
Empty space in space. The second moon. The list goes on.
There are missing people and missing people and for reasons unknown they are not always the same, or sane.

What this thread has gotten. What the **** happened here, you guys? This ain't the place for shitty poetry, all lined up nice and neat in dainty little quatrains (word of the day) to delight thy mind Faustus, this is for RANDOMNESS. See the title? It says it right there. RANDOMNESS. If it said fruit pies you could probably get away with a poem about jaffa cakes (Which are cakes, as they go hard when stale. Or the opposite and are biscuits, I can't remember my QI) But the point is that NO POEMS. No well thought out metaphysical answers that ponder the sanctity of the universe. Ran-dom-ness.

I understand you two are getting bored, being the only ones interested in this thing other than me, and that one of you ain't gots the writing down to a tee and thinks clocks and time going by is all just a way to write a poem (which ain't in quatrains, as they're four lines, see), but come on people, loosen up and shake down that **** bones, because whoropolis is recruiting and you don't want to miss your spot on the promenade.

Seriously.

Hey Seer complete randomness would also include the possibility of something ordered like a poem, and that is what came to mind at the time, and yes we probably have been a overdoing the replies a bit. We are just not as random as you. So we have a Quatrain, a form of poetry, about which I just got tolled of for doing, what is the world coming to where randomness is all ordered and the sky is green. Or was it purple?
Ignoring the colour of the sky lets move on to other things, like that 1 min I have left if I would follow the 5 min rule that was (maybe) laid down at the beginning of this.

Ok thast wasn't the FIRST time i saw one, i have seen them in captivity, in bird shows and the like, or in averies at zoos and bird rescue centres, but that was my first wild one i saw, the first real one, and i'm still envious of it's freedom.

Remember that show, Leave it to Beaver.  I don't.  I remember one episode I saw on Tvland in a hotel room once.  His parents hired some old friend of his dad's to paint the house.  He turned out to be a drunk.  I forget the ending.  I can't remember if the guy goes sober or not.  I think they just fired him.  I got to say, that our society and how lax it is has come a long way.  Or at least, I think so.  I don't remember society before 1996.  I feel young.  It's wierd being so young at times.  Sometimes I feel like I'm too young to do many of the things kids my age do, but at other times, I feel like I'm too old.  That said, I feel old at times, compared to younger kids.  Maybe it has to do with me working with elementary students for a job.

Title: Re: The Slightly Random but still good for creative reasons thread.
Post by: Tau Worlock on June 27, 2007, 09:52:50 am
Rhinoceros from the Greek words rhino and keras (sp?). The first one I think means nose and the second one horn, or was it the other way round? My greek is not very good I am afraid to say. Any body know what the plural of Rhinoceros is?
Rhinoceros? Rhinoceri? Rhinoceroses?
Any way the wolly rhino died out at some point, it could not find a barber who would cut its fur when it nolonger needed it after the ice age. So it got to hot and eneded up cooked on the inside.

Title: Re: The Slightly Random but still good for creative reasons thread.
Post by: Kitsune Tsuki on July 06, 2007, 02:59:09 am
Manuscript is such a dated word.  I should use it more often.  I like using obscure words.  Though, then people give me weird looks.  I get enough of them, but it never really bugged me.  Though, people who fake interest in my hobbies annoy me.  Moreso when it's painfully apparent that they have no real interest.  I told someone that I knew they didn't care about my hobbies (I think it was magic cards at the time) and a teacher yelled at me for being rude to him.  She was a **** anyway.  She didn't allow us to talk at lunch.  She used a cookie monster with saxaphone toy to try and quiet us down.  It was pretty funny actually.  I got in trouble once when she was subbing, and I had to read a science text book.  It was kind of weird.  I remember this project in it where we had to make up species(dragons to be specific) and describe their habitat and how or why they evolved to live there.  I thought it was pretty lame, and I loved dragons at that time.  Only good thing was I got to draw.

Antidisestablishmentarianism now that is a long word, I donít know a lot about the Church of England and the origin of the word but I have to say 28 letters? In other languages no problem but in English? 28 letters, that word is longer than if one listed the alphabet. Then again it contains two prefixes and three (if I can count) suffixes. Lets add another prefix then: counterantidisestablishmentarianism

Does not ring a bell, taking of bell I heard the church bell at one in the morning yesterday (no that would be today), bit annoying as I was trying to sleep, and not listen to the bell. Why do they have to ring at night at all, nobody is really there to listen and any who are should be asleep. Unless they happened to be an insomniac. And then they should not be outside a small CoE church at one in the morning, Iím sure the pubs are still open by that time so why are they not there.

hmm the ocean, clear and blue, it would be a nice day to go to the beach today I think,
if we were anywhere near the beach that is,
the sky is blue at the moment with only a few white clouds
of course having said that I have probably jinxed it
and we will be back to the rain that we have had for the past few weeks and maybe a few storms


oh yeah I need to give someone a new word don't I,
nearly forgot about that for a moment,
been forgetting lots of things recently,
cant think of anyothers, but Im sure I have.
never mind,

I love birthdays.  I still enjoy the idea of it being 'you're special day'.  Ok, maybe not so much as when I was younger.  But I do like when my mom makes me a cake.  My father's birthday is the day before mine.  He'll always remind me that his birthday is the day before mine, whenever I mention birthdays.  Like, if I say 'It's my birthday this weekend', he'll immediately respond 'Yeah?  Mine too!'  He's certainly a smartass at times.  Of course, I've adopted many of his more...annoying traits.  I suppose apples really don't fall far from the tree.

Paintbrush? I rather have a pencil , or maybe a pen, then I could writ something, though come to think of it a comp would be better for my writing as I will at least catch some spelling problems. Somebody should invent spellcorecting pens, so that when your right it corrects any mistakes you make.

Penumbra I know I have seen this word before, Latin? Or Greek?
Something to do with shadows, tough one wont see any today, something to do with the ocean outside the door, and I really did not want to go uphill swimming today. That is so exhausting as the river pulls you down the entire time, not to mention wet

drenched,
that would be what i was when i arrived at that prison that we like to call school, actually drenched would be a slight understatement.
joy of joys sports day cancelled so i have even more lessons than i expected today, spending time sitting down with fellow prisoners listening to the jailors trying to impart useless knowledge onto us when all they want to be is as far away from us as possible and all we want is to be out of here having fun.
oh and water is wet because water is wet, it would not be water if it was not wet. It can be useful, i would just prefer it if it rained when i want it to rain rather than when i don't.

My cousins like to camp alot.  They spent about two weeks hiking and camping last summer.  They only spent like...50 dollars in gas thanks to their prius.  Hybrid cars seem pretty popular lately.  I'm just waiting for cheap hybrids, or hybrid SUVs.  That's when I think hybrids will really shoot off.  The american public won't be giving up their big trucks anytime soon.  I really can't blame them.  Most suvs are rather comfortable and are definately a family car.

I have a love-hate relationship with red hot chili peppers.  Sure, they taste great in tacos or chili, but sometimes they're so damned hot they feel like they're burning your face off.  And then later on they can give you the shits, if your body doesn't take to them well enough.

And trust me, you don't want to be near me on that day.

Huh?  Who?  Oh, the band Red Hot Chili Peppers?  Meh...they give me gas too.

I have a torn pair of paints.  There is a hole in the knee and everyone feels that they must point that out to me.  Yes, I know I have a hole in my knickers, I didn't notice that.  It's as if they treat me like I don't look at the clothing I wear in the morning.  Maybe they're saying I have a bad sense in fashion. 

I hate people who get obsessed with fashion and have to wear the hot new item.  I watch girls walk around in the middle of summer with fur snow boots.  It puzzles me that those are comfortable in the heat.  Then they go and wear miniskirts till it's only 20 degrees outside. 

I use to be very intolerant of the weather, but now I feel like I'm always cold.  I once shoveled snow in shorts and a t-shirt.  That was fun.

Ah a shank of lamb. That tasty morsel to sit upon the shelf for itís own short eternity. Shame it is a non-sentient object. In fact. Iíd go so far as to say it was the type of object that could never be sentient. And bloody hell people keep speaking to me.

Anyway, on the topic of a shank, I find it slightly odd that a subject as such could come from something so inanimate, yet strangely enough I feel the incessant need to carry on writing in a way that my body wonít let me stop.

Except now to use the spell check feature. And so it is done! I hav raised the sword like cursor, without even stooping so low as to bring upwards my gift from mere peasants. It is a gift of fine nature a gift with no other. Oh, for godís sake another typo.

The typo, shell of mortality, irresistible mistake to fall upon thine blade and damnation word that is how you spell thine. Ugh. And now Iím distracted by the door. How colleridge esque. I mean really. In fact I find it quite Ironic. Bah. To prepare for timed essay or not? I say not.

Post by: Nomad5 on January 09, 2008, 01:29:17 pm
Pleasantry. What can I say about Pleasantry? It keeps to itself, which is pleasant enough (har har) but why? Why does it sit in a corner nursing a solitary beer when other words are out dancing and partying all night long? Does it have any friends? What does it like?

What does Pleasantry, find pleasant?

Maybe I should get to know it. Introduce it to something with nice curves. Like Curvaceous. She's a nice girl, not too big except where it counts. But maybe that's not its thing. Maybe it perfers... words of the same type? Pleasantry Nice. Pleasantry Awesome. Pleasantry Great? Nah, maybe not.

Ah well, it's ****. Except it isn't. (har har)

Bad jokes! They ain't pleasant. ry. Ugh. I think I see it now. With such an attention **** for a sister, it's no wonder Pleasantry gets such little spot-light. Why use pleasantry when you can use pleasant? I mean, it's shorter, nicer to say and only charges you 2 syllables. Maybe if Pleasantry would just lower it's standards, it could get just as many men as pleasantly, the poor man's pleasant.

Ah well, I tried. Next word : Trebuchet



Title: Re: The Slightly Random but still good for creative reasons thread.
Post by: Spainops on January 09, 2008, 11:30:51 pm
trebuchet.... Yet another one of man's machines of destruction. Why exactly do we adore so the weapons of murder, the bringers of death and the cold kissers of the afterlife? Why do we feel the need to play God and take lives on our whim?

Why am I asking so many damn questions? Why am I curious? Why does curious mean that we're interested and inquisitive about the nature of something? Why won't I shut up? Because five minutes haven't gone by yet, that's why.

'Tis so easy to observe the superficiality of the world, but what can be said of the nature underneath? If you look at a tree, is that all you see? Or can you see that which is within it?

Can you see its purpose? Can you observe the flow of time, can you make out the imprint on destinty?

Life is so much more than what we take it to be, that sometimes we forget how human beings have the same lives as us. But they don't live like us you say? That's because I say they have the same lives as us, not the same lifestyle, punk.

Trebuchets, wooden wunders (I mean wonders) of the past, archaic and deadly. Now we just have metal, aluminum and instant death.

Who hooo!!!

That's five. Next word: Destiny.


Title: Re: The Slightly Random but still good for creative reasons thread.
Post by: Nomad5 on January 14, 2008, 08:37:13 am
Destiny, a creation of the human mind or in fact an omnipresent diety, ever watchful and ever spiteful. Indeed, this question has plagued us (or the ancient greeks at least) for an age and more. If indeed it is but a creation of the human mind, it could be easily conquered. Simply to shut it out and that would be that, another myth slain.

But it wouldn't explain anything would it? The Overdog and the Underdog, the million to one chances. And Luck, which is seemingly slanted on a daily basis judging on who god feels like playing with today. But I digress, Destiny in itself seems to have been spawned by the mother of all creation, the human mind, but much like its siblings has fully grown into something much more.

It intervenes at every step and infiltrates every facet of the overly superstitious human mind. Opressor or saviour, it thwarts the evil and rewards the good (rarely vice-versa, that honour belongs to luck again, that fickle mistress) forever the universal scale. Perhaps Destiny is Justice, the two making homes on opposite sides of a coin. Perhaps it would explain why it is so haphazard in its own implementation, after all, Justice is blind, perhaps Destiny is too.

That's pretty **** wordy. Lots of psychobabble there. On that note...

Next Word - Psychiatrist.


Title: Re: The Slightly Random but still good for creative reasons thread.
Post by: Moonwolf on February 01, 2008, 02:29:57 am
Psychiatrist. I had a Psychology class last semester. The professor taught us the difference between Psychiatrist and Psychologist...the former can prescribe medication, the other can only listen to you. I loved that professor, though. Its great to see ones that love the subject they teach. One thing I've always wondered about psychiatrists is what gives them the right to know me better than me? The initial reaction might be that they have a different perspective that is an outside, unbiased, objective one that can be helpful in seeing your troubles in a different way. However, can't a friend do that? Or any human for that matter? Don't we all have our own unique perspective of the world that no one else but us sees and understands?

For instance I am at home, on my couch, contemplating seeing a movie later this evening, and typing on my laptop right now. Reading this a person would just assume that I am at a desk, sitting in a nice comfy chair, typing on my desktop computer, maybe even picture me in a spot very similar to their own. A person reading this might even wonder, now that I mentioned I am contemplating seeing a movie, what movie I am considering seeing. Or now that I mention it, a person reading this might want to go see a movie themselves. So, ha! I have just sent a subconscious message out to all reading this because of my understanding of the human mind and (semi)mastery of the English language. Does this make me a psychiatrist?

As for that word "movie" it sounds like something a child would say. "What's that four legged drooling animal, dear?" "Its a doggie!" "And what's that with the moving images?" "Its a movie!" Man I love the English language!  ;D


I might have exceeded my five minutes....Ah well, the next word shall be....COUCH!


Title: Re: The Slightly Random but still good for creative reasons thread.
Post by: Nomad5 on February 08, 2008, 11:24:35 am
A couch, a member of the family of objects to which being lazy comes naturally. Unfortunately, people who are around or on the couch seem to aquire said trait. People soon become one with the couch, forever slouching, eyes unfocused fingers forever tapping in an effort to find a chanel that does not suck complete ass.

Otherwise couches make good cover, the choice piece for goons and henchmen everywhere, forever the shield against the otherwise metaphorical or literal sword of the carefree hero/heroine. Though the stone wall and the sandbag are arguably much better at stopping bullets the couch is much better at being lept behind.

Fail to vault over a couch and the only thing that might happen is you land on the comfy couch seat. Fail to vault over a stonewall leads to a mild to serious concussion and the possibility that the bullets that you were running away from might actually hit you. This is unfair since bullets are fairly indiscriminate in their choice of targets but who's to complain? Not I.

Phew, I think that's 5 minutes. Next word is...

Blitzkrieg.

Post by: Kitsune Tsuki on March 29, 2008, 10:45:25 pm
Mmm...blitzkrieg.  Ok, I don't really get it that much.  Just like the sound to it, one of those odd, minor war fetishes.  You know, something to make it sound like you know your military tactics.  I honestly don't know how it works, or at least not specifically.  Something about quick, lightnening raids and tanks.  Eh, not that important I suppose.

Ever feel like some sort of stand up comedian while writing these bits.  Kind of gotta make it flow, you know?  You get these little bits where you're just saying 'yadda, yadda, yadda'.  Killing time till the next thing hits you.  I almost want to say 'Uh, and such as, and by the way' in between each point.  Of course, sometimes I just make a random jump from here to there.  There ain't no bridge between blitzkrieg and stand up comedians, unless Hitler hired some joker to stand on his tanks and crack some bad german humor at the french.  Many laughs to be had there.

Kegger.


Title: Re: The Slightly Random but still good for creative reasons thread.
Post by: Moonwolf on April 03, 2008, 04:13:44 pm
Kegger. Hmmm....Well I'm not a drinker, although I've been around it enough as my group's official "designated driver". I've never really been to any of those college "parties" as my friends and I all go to different colleges (or some of them went straight to work instead). So we have our own kind of "parties" that involve just us, usually a board game of some type (most often "Apples to Apples"), and a LOT of giggling. Those are some fun weekends. Everyone stumbling around and the giggling....oh the giggling. I've never seen nor heard a group of 5 large guys giggle before until I started being my D&D group's designated driver. And as much as they don't want to admit it, they can all get fairly high pitched >_<

I am not being honest to my first thought, however, as this thread is supposed to be. My first thought upon seeing "kegger" was not of some type of party, but of a little troll carrying a really big wooden keg. The Witchfire thread I just posted on has me thinking about the Iron Kingdoms world, I guess. My friend plays Trollbloods and I converted his little "Kegger" by adding an arrow in the side of the keg with little bits of beer foaming where the arrow penetrated. I'm no expert converter, but I thought it was cool. I definitely think he's cute and he's always my first thought when people say the word "kegger". I guess I'm just a geek like that.

Should be about five minutes, maybe a little less.

Well I'm in Geology class so the prof's got me thinking and I think the next word will be......."Extinction"! Or, if you prefer, "Mass Extinction"!


Title: Re: The Slightly Random but still good for creative reasons thread.
Post by: Nomad5 on April 11, 2008, 10:02:37 am
Mass extinction has never been much of a motive for villains these days, but remember those old mustache twirlers? Those chronic kidnappers of old? What happened to the villain who wanted nothing more than the destruction of an entire species, a penultimate end to those meddling do-gooders and their inevitable offspring?

Indeed, now all we have are the so-called 'anti-heroes' and the villains who actually have a proper purpose to drive their devilish schemes. No longer will the audiences of the world simply accept that the bad guy is right and properly **** in the head.

Bad or good? I have no idea. Perhaps there was no method behind this early madness. I'd like to keep going but I've missed the train of thought.

Equality is something that James pretends he wants. Everyone pretends to want it, except for M.I.T. professors, because we know our meager intellects would be strangled by the weight of meritocracy.

I've only heard of two things ever blossoming, people and flowers.  Seeing as I don't like either, I really don't care that much.  In the case of flowers, the only good thing that comes from it is pretty colors and faint smells.  People just get bigger, hairier and smellier.  I think I'd prefer to talk about flowers.

I bought a flower for my prom date, for her corsage.  When I picked it up the day of, I looked at it and it looked half dead.  The two main flowers where already curling at the end and looked a bit wilted.  Not really noticeable but not what I had imagined.  What's kind of funny is when I had to order the corsage, the lady kept asking me these questions like 'Oh, what color dress is your date wearing?  What pattern is on it?  Do you want silk or cloth ribbon?'  All these silly things I really don't care about it.  Everytime she asked me something, I looked to my mother, who shrugged.  I then turned back to the botanist, or whatever you'd call her, and shrug myself.  She would say and put down whatever the generic answer is.  My mom thought it would take something like twenty minutes to order, but it took all of five. 

My five are now done and my new word is Bone Marrow.  Ok, two words.

Hmm, Bone Marrow
I was never much good with biology i'm afraid. Physics I enjoy, Chemistry and Biology, not so much - though that may have been something to do with the teachers.
It's something to do with bone's though, I think its inside them, though I couldn't be certain. I could look it up but I won't.
I know this though. Without Bones we would just be a puddle on the floor, a wobbling jelly. So Bone Marrow must be pretty important.
Can't think of much else to say, just under 2 minutes left I think.
Hmm.
I wonder when the biology exams are. Doesnt matter I guess, not for me anyway. It's a useful subject don't get me wrong. I'm just not much good with it.

So that leaves me with lots of with...with? Let's try that again. That leaves me freee to do all the things I've been utting off due to having to get exams out of the way. I can start drawing again, start up on that imagination book, there are a few other short stories I want to do, a novel to start, a game to design and program (though that part is driving me mad, currently).

The Paranoid and the Salesman. When these two twisted, brilliant minds come together then only logical conclusion is the Cryptex. Once a secure form of storage, a treasure hidden behind an impenetrable puzzle, it was lost in the swirling currents of history as man turned to better security innovations, most involving big men with even bigger sticks.

It has returned once more but in the most unlikely of forms. As a movie collectible. Who knows how many older Crpytex's scoff at the shiny new model, where the old guard existed as undecipherable conundrums to keep secrets behind a facade of steel and words the new guard merely exist as a novelty, a better looking, shiny model but nonetheless shallow and lacking soul.

And now, for a word that dosen't require Google.

Boobs.
