    He's even sporting a matching icon now. :cool:



    In other news, I literally applauded on my couch last night when I watched Alexandre Vinokourov take home a stage win in the mountains in the Tour de France. Amazing man - especially off the back of his previous day's race which put him undoubtedly out of contention.

    2Q, what's the deal with the sudden KDY obsession? Ingraving it into your arm seems a little... rash. :p

    I'm practicaly as much The2ndQuest as I am Billy, so the Zelda Triforce ensignia seemed the way to go. Plus it doubles as the KDY SW connection, so I get double points if tattoos were a game of scrabble. Which it's not, so I guess I odn't get double points. Since there are none. ;)

    The full eagle version really struck me when I came across it in a Triforce shard chamber in The Wind Waker when I was finishing that game off last summer, and thinking back to middle school, I used to put little Triforces bookending my name on papers, so looking back I actually have a long association with this symbol.

    Plus the introduction of the Triforce of Courage in the Zelda II instruction manual was probably about the closest thing to a religious revelation I'm likely to come across (but I bet that applies to a lot of children of the 80's, even if they never realized it ;) ), so it really works on a lot of different levels ;)

    pretty much the same reason I had an Autobot symbol tattooed on my arm 10 years ago.

    Nice tat 2nd![face_dancing]

    Well, I've been away on holiday for the last week, and considering the dreadful summer we're having here, I actually had quite a nice week, with minimal rain. :D

    Any SSSW developments why I've been away then guys?

    Lucas came by to shoot the breeze with us, let us write 3 episodes of the live action series and gave us Harrison Ford's home phone number.

    So, not much.

    While we're musing about arm-staining, here's (a very quick'n'dirty pic of) what I've had for 6 years now;

    Always wanted tats, just took me years to find something I'd be happy to wear for the rest of my life. That's the only one so far, but I'm always on the lookout :)

    Nice one Blackout- at one point I did consider that symbol (I used to have a patch of the Imperial logo on my jacket sleeve in high school) but in the end I felt the Triforce resonanted better.

    And that's exactly what it's about! :D

    I used to work with a guy who had the Autobot symbol on one arm and the Decepticon symbol on the other (on the inside of his forearm too, talk about wearing it on your sleeve!) Needless to say, I was deeply impressed. :)

    That tattoo is sick Blackout.

    I've wanted to get the imperial logo on my arm for awhile, but I have a strong paranoia of needles and therefore to actually gather up the guts to get a tattoo is nearly impossible.

    My dignity.

    Today I'm going to bring back an old favourite from the 2SA GIL thread. A fact from "THIS DAY IN HISTORY" used to be posted by our old friend Silmarillion every day, in an attempt to gurantee that not one day past without at least one post in the GIL social countdown thread. So with much thanks to SIL for this idea I present today fact from this day in history;

    It's not complete. There's no background image. And I'm curious, when did this get uploaded?

    I'm liking it, the moment I saw the 3d greivous I was like HELLS YEAH! But yea, it cuts off at Anakin's face, other than that the way the images contrast with eachother it looks superb.

    We're trying to get banners moving now, I think. I'd send a PM to Jedi_Dejuan :)

    This banner is very sweet. Great to see the trailer footage used.

    I hope it is showing up for people okay now? It's fine on my screen. :)
