    Watch 5 Minutes of Simpsons/Family Guy Crossover

    Aside from the one self-referential gag about the Cleveland show bombing (which got a mild smirk), that was one of the worse things I've ever seen.

    Hearthstone Lead Designer Talks Beta, Nerfs, and the Future

    That's true. The core play still revolves around dropping a Starving Buzzard, UtH and a Timber Wolf or two, sweeping most of your field, and refilling their hand. I also agree about the nerf thing. Pagle probably needed a nerf but Tinkmaster was one of the few reliable counters to Druids...

    Hearthstone Lead Designer Talks Beta, Nerfs, and the Future

    I agree that Unleash the Hounds should cost 3. Problem with Hunters at the moment is that almost every Hunter deck I've seen for the past 2 weeks is built exactly the same. There's no variation whatsoever and that makes them very boring.

    Proudest Achievement on The Escapist

    I barely post but I still managed to get the Landmark badge. Which slightly defeats the point of the Landmark badge when you think about it.

    Poll: Are you happy?

    Been there (kinda am there). It sucks man. I got dumped right before the most important exams of my life and it messed with my head for a few months. I'm kinda stagnating on my gap year atm. I had a great job for a month selling christmas trees but that ended and I haven't really started...

    8 Album Covers Considered To Be Quite Legendary

    That's my personal favourite. I reckon Nevermind is also missing from the list. One other one I like is this but I can see why that wouldn't be on the list:

    Do you read classic literature?

    Yeah I read quite a few, but it's mostly the plot driven classics (rather than more thematically important literature). Recently I've read some Dumas (The Count of Monte Cristo), Lion Feuchtwanger (Jew Süss), Dickens (Great Expectations), Fitzgerald (Gatsby), Twain (American Drolleries), Austen...

    Any musicians around here?

    I've played Piano for like 10 years. I almost exclusively played Chopin for the past 3-4 but I've recently started learning a piece by Mozart. I also play Trumpet, and used to be in like 7 orchestras. Since I've left school I haven't played it so much but I might start practicing it again...

    Hearthstone is Not Magic, But I Love It All the Same

    But this looks pretty cool! I've recently got back into Magic (and have built the better part of 4 edh decks in the past 6 months or so), so I don't really have time for another card game in my life, but my playgroup is gradually splitting up so I might have to find some other way to waste my...

    8 Most Exciting New Pokemon in X and Y

    I got X and I also have a bitchin' Tyrantrum. Lil dude goes ham. Aside from that, I'm really diggin' Clawitzer. I have a thing for the huge awesome OTT Pokémon. And have you seen Mega-Aggron?! It was one of my favourites before, but now...holy shit.

    What's the most boring book you've ever read?

    This has been quite an interesting thread to read. I actually enjoyed a lot of the books that people have listed here (despite having studied some of them), like Catch-22, The Great Gatsby, Emma, Frankenstein, The Catcher in the Rye, The Lord of the Rings, 1984 etc. There are however a few...

    Your iTunes Library

    If you haven't heard of Action Bronson check him out. He's my favourite 'new' rapper. On this computer (relatively new) my iTunes count is pretty low, around a thousand or so songs, but on the main family computer there are maybe 70-90,000 songs? I haven't checked in a while.

    How do you react to being hit on/checked out?

    Most of the time I've been 'hit on' I haven't really reciprocated the sentiment which has just led to an awkward situation (although I appreciate it), and it hasn't happened at all lately due to being in a relationship for about 6 months, followed by a relatively low key breakup which has...

    Trying to drink myself into oblivion.

    Definitely one of the most depressing songs out there (also alcohol related). I'd listen to the people telling you to go easy, though. It won't solve your problems.

    Those songs that never, ever get old

    I don't think I've ever skipped this song. I started learning this recently, but I've loved it for ages. One of the great piano works. The bit at around 4:37 is one of my favourite moments in music.
