Me too. It's my last semester of college, and there's only one class left for me. I'll be graduating in December with a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Information Systems. I'm not really sure if I'm :dixiehappy: or :kiddysad: about this, though. On one hand, I'll finally get that degree; on the other, there are friends I may never see again.

You know, I'm aiming for the same goal, except I'm pitching the first inning and you're already at the bottom of the ninth. As for your friends, yes, it's true you may never see all your friends again, but you can still save some! Just make sure you try to stay in touch with them.

I am rather happy for a reason. (no, it's not that school is starting soon, I hate that!)

I am on the development team for "Mega Man 8-bit Deathmatch" which is a game that I like. (Although it is Megaman, AND an FPS, so I don't expect many people here would play it too.)

In fact, at the 4:03 mark in the trailer for v4, is an image I made for it! :dixiehappy:

EDIT: It's BAAAAAAACK!

If it was a few years ago, you must have played v1, or v2.
You missed v3!

v3 came out last December. It had Mega Man 8 stuff in it, as well as the 2 new Robot Masters (skins, bots, and stages) from Mega Man Powered Up.

v4, as the trailer shows, will be Mega Man & Bass.

Currently, I have created a cutscene image (in the trailer), 2 skins, a prop, some Title Screens for MM7 and MM8, and something for the new ending credits scene.



Also, I am (slowly) working on making MM8BDM player skins of several characters from a certain trilogy of SNES games created by a British company that goes by the name of "Rareware". :swanky:

Today is September 24, and it's been 11 years since Microsoft bought and ruined Rareware. (Also, Star Fox Adventures was released in the US one day before that.) Time sure flies...

Not to mention, the decline of Rareware was obvious almost immediately, as a little over 10 years ago, Banjo-Kazooie: Grunty's Revenge was released (September 10, 2013 to be exact), which is nowhere near the quality of Banjo-Kazooie or Banjo-Tooie. Quite sad, really... I've considered venting about it, but I haven't gotten around to doing so.

Also, it is sad that Hiroshi Yamauchi died. Without him, Nintendo may never be as relevant as it is now... he left behind quite a legacy. Where would we all be without Nintendo?

I just had to say this DKC Atlas reference... 99 yellow bananas in my hoard. :kiddycool:

(Because I have 99 bananas... heh heh... heh... lame, I know...)

Also, time does fly... I wish Rareware didn't leave Nintendo... the company makes me want to cry now... it just is crazy how long ago that actually was and how long ago it seems... craziness.

Hiroshi Yamauchi made a lot of good moves for Nintendo — including prompting the creation of a little ol' industry-revolutionising game called Donkey Kong! It's a shame to hear about the death of such an influential figure.

Rest in peace, good sir.

On a completely unrelated note...

That was terrible. So terrible, that I forgot what I was going to say. Oh, right...

So I think Rareware is purposely creating rubbish games in order to sabotage Microsoft. The Stamper Bros. and David Wise's departures were planned, obviously. As a side note, I'd like to think Hiroshi Yamauchi sat on his front porch during his final days, reminiscing about "when games were games."

I don't know if any of you know, but I'm aspiring to be an art teacher. Over the past month, I've taught two lessons at a middle school. Next month, I'll be teaching two lessons to an elementary school. I've had so much fun with the middle school kids and I'm going to miss them... I know it may sound cheesy since I've only been with the kids once a week for six weeks... but I was very surprised at how much I enjoyed teaching the kids and helping them out. I really want to do this :D I just finished teaching my second lesson today. I had the kids make political cartoons! It was fun!

Now I have to think of two lessons for 4th graders! I'm nervous for teaching younger kids, but I'm still excited!

That's fantastic, Phyre! I'm very happy to hear you've found a career calling to be excited about. :D

I've always considered being a teacher myself, and keep getting urged to do so by friends and family... but I don't know. I guess I'll see where the future takes me.

I think I'd be most interested in teaching the young'uns — such as the ones you currently have to think up classes for — as I'd worry that kids any older than that would have better book smarts than me already! :lol:

Impossible, Mighty Atlas Author Qyzbud. Quite impossible.

As for you, Phyreburnz, your job/hobby/volunteer work/compulsion/activity sounds like it fits you to a capital P. I just have one question. Are you going to brainwash the Kiddie Kongs into creating your sprite animations for the Atlas, because that idea is terrible. Also, I just thought up another question. Are you going to be like my ex-art teacher and teach art for 20+ years, while you look and sound like Wrinkly Kong? Because that idea would mean you're successful.

Almost. You've just about got the look down. Make sure to acquire some 1995 reading glasses and an old, experienced face. You look too familiar, by the way. I can't quite place where I've seen you (or at least someone like you) before.

So I went to the local fair yesterday. I saw some exhibits, bought a Luigi hat, and rode some rides. Even in the middle of the day, I could still hear Disco Train. The rides were literally sounding out the music. There was one making the "bum bum, budda bum" noise, while another did the "meoooooooooow" one. Also, I saw a sign that stated, "Take the inland tunnel to Kiddie Land!" Obviously not a coincidence.

Nice photo, Phyre — short hair really suits you. :D

Apart from the kind face (and short hair, I suppose), I must say I don't see a lot of similarity between you and Wrinkly... not necessarily a bad thing, given your age and species. :lol:

Jennifer Connelly and David Bowie really played their parts well, might I add. Also, the final "battle" scene is one of my favorites out of all the movies I've ever watched.

I think the Escher room and final battle are my favorite parts.

I wish Jim Henson did more movies like that. If you guys like Labyrinth, you'd probably like the Dark Crystal, as well.

Definitely burritos, unless you make or buy one that has a rotten tortilla. Then it just becomes an overarching taco.

Are you two on a road trip across the treacherous plains of Australia, armed only with your knowledge, DKC Atlas, and Ninja Beau? If so, make sure you look left, right, and then up for falling monkeys. Those darn monkeys, they even fall in sideways!

Speaking of The Land Down Under, how does anyone survive there? K. Rool's Kousins are all over the place, giant mutant Neeks roam the plains, Winky and his humongous family are landing on people, and even the very ground itself is a killer threat! I'm not joking here; I've done the research and have come to the conclusion that, in Australia, EVERYTHING IS TRYING TO KILL YOU!

Nah it's not really.
Most of the people that are killed by things here are usually trying to kill something themselves...

We're in South Australia; which is one of the coolest parts (temperature wise), we do get snakes here but not much, and only really in Hills area (which is where we live! Haha!).

I got bitten by a Brown snake once, but that was only because I wasn't watching and I stepped on it! I was fine though, I didn't even see a doctor :)
Also: I was in an uninhabited remote horses paddock in the middle of summer with no shoes on (so no noise to scare the away), it was really stupid and totally my fault and just not something that would happen to a normal person :P

I actually feel like America is way more dangerous!
America= shi**y healthcare+more diseases like rabies and AIDS (we don't have rabies here and we literally have 8 people with Aids in SA)+many more dangerous large animals like cougars and bears, etc.

Pretty much everything here that is dangerous is sh*t scared of you and will avoid at all costs. Most people live here their entire lives andnever see and snake or a Croc.

I can see it now.

On one sunny day, local and faithful Atlasite Super Luigi! was checking all the topics on the DKC Atlas, as was a excellent user's duty. After the task had been completed, the Kruncha-bandana-wearing person dropped by the Chat Room, where all the interesting stuff happens. Upon arriving, SL was greeted by the Almighty Administrative Atlas Author Qyzbud and his soon-to-be-hopefully-but-not-actually-right-now-because-of-Australia's-strange-naming-sytem-of-girlfriends wife MrsQyzbud. After the usual small talk about this thing: :gnawty-lol: , the love banana birds commanded Super Luigi! to look outside for a Gyrocopter. Just then, the door rang, and SL ran to answer it. Seeing an unfamiliar dynamic duo through the peephole, the Atlas user opened the front door :target: of the humble abode. After asking who the couple were, they told the Atlasite. Super Luigi! then realized that, standing before him, were, in fact, Mr. and Mrs. Qyzbud. SL bowed a respectful bow and immediately kneeled before his masters. Qyzbud ordered his scribe to rise, while the Mrs. couldn't control her laughter. Super Luigi! invited the couple inside, introduced them to his family, and everyone then began to have a merry time. Sodas and hot dogs and beef jerky :gift: were plentiful in the festival, but there were no bananas! :banana: SL apologized profusely, and then bought $100 worth of banana bunches. Then at last, once the 6-hour party had come to its conclusion, Mr. and Mrs. Qyzbud bid farewell before they flew off into the sunset towards their next destination. It was then that Super Luigi! returned to his post to cry a scribe's tears. :dixiecry:

As Mr. and Mrs. Qyzbud gasped in horror at the meaty food and soda, Super Luigi! quickly reassured them. "Don't worry," he spoke, "These jerkys aren't from cows; we made them ourself! And the hot dogs, they're not all created from pig-bottoms! Some are, yes, but others are polish and Vegi-Links! The soda is diet too! To top it all off, we even have almond milk, so you don't have to worry about somehow drinking a cow!" Qyzbud let out a bellowing laugh that shook the earth to its core, as he then drank much and ate plenty. MrsQyzbud laughed even more at how silly the contents of SL's refrigerator were, and then joined her not-yet-but-still-quite-possible husband in dining.


That's all completely true, by the way.

As interesting as that is, I must state my random thought.

I FINALLY FIXED MY COPY OF DKC2! It works like a charm, and I played it for an hour and a half last night! I never realized just how lifelike everything in this game is! I mean, Bayou Boogie is EXACTLY what my hometown looks like (I'm seriously not kidding!). And once I made it to Bramble Blast, I darn near had a heart attack from the beauty that I had beheld! I hope this doesn't offend anybody, but the combination of Stickerbrush Sympthony and Bramble Blast together was almost as magnificent and all-powerful as Jesus Himself. Perhaps I've gone too far, but my 90 minutes with the game were amazing! I CAN"T WAIT TO PLAY THE REST OF THE GAME TOMMORROW! OK, SO NOW I NEED TO HURRY AND GO TO SLEEP SO I CAN DO SO! GOODNIGHT EVERYONE!

Qyzbud, if I take photos, then people will know where I live! Plus, I don't have a camera that connects to my computer. (Although I could borrow someone else's.) But anyway, perhaps I shouldn't have said exactly. My hometown isn't entirely a swamp; it just contains parts that look like one!

MrsQyzbud, I'm not jealous, as it is wrong to covet, but I must admit, that cover is very refined. Have fun staring at it!

So I just beat DKC2 again, and now I'm a little sad that the adventure is over. *looks at the blank File 2* Then again, :dixiehappy: this may just be the beginning! :diddywink:

A pointless statement, but it's been exactly twenty-one years since The Simpsons episode New Kid on the Block aired. It is an episode of Season 4 that aired first on November 12, 1992. Back when I was interested in The Simpsons, this episode was my favorite one. It's the one with Laura. Laura is probably enjoying being in her late thirties as of today...
