Re: NARC Revival To Be Priced At $20

A real question? Lingo for the lower rates one gets if one's dealer is also one's friend.

I'm not generally a fan of vonTrier or the dogme films in general, but I must suggest The Idiots as an interesting introduction to his works.

Re: Ozomatli

While Street Signs is a good album, I find it a little too polished. Many of the tracks sound just a bit too produced, too poppy. I find I enjoy their earlier albums -- both self-titled and Embrace...

Re: Problem with GBA SP

Try getting a can of compressed air with a very small pipe. Failing that, a smidge of WD-40, right in the crack between the casing and the button in question.

Re: GoldenEye is Just a Cheap Explotation of an Critically Acclaim Game

I'm with Sajon on this one. RARE may not be all that anymore, but to ignore their past contributions is a mistake. Even if you didn't like Battletoads (though I did), you cannot dismiss Snake,...

Re: A Divided Nation? Questions for Bored Memebers

Re: Thinking About Going Ex-Pat

Just some quick notes:

1. We're expatriates and not expatriots. Please get it straight. There's a world of difference.

2. Leaving does not constitute 'running away' or 'giving up.' In fact, I'm...

By far the best electoral vote poll analysis can be found on electoral-vote.com (http://www.electoral-vote.com). Run by, it turns out, Andrew Tanenbaum!

Re: Who are you voting for? Bush or Kerry?

Want to verify what your favourite (or hated) politician is saying? Sadly, the onus rests on you. Fortunately, factcheck (http://www.factcheck.org/) makes it easier than ever.
