||Last week, the
survey asked what's the worst movie you ever saw, this week,
Argon asked, "I'm doing a
survey to be published in @Action News, What's the best movie
you ever saw"
says, "2001: A Space Odyssey"
hisses, "Brazil! It has everything. Explosions, naked
chicks, explosions, Johnathan Price, explosions. And some
kind of plot."
writes down, "Bambi, it has bunnies in it. :)
says, "Toss up for Me, Between Brazil, Apocalypse Now
and The Seven Samurai"
says, "Easy! BraveHeart!"
considers this... "Clerks."
hisses, "Well, I know it's a bit conventional, Argon,
but I'd have to go with 'Casablanca'. It's one of the few
movies I can think of where every single line of dialog is
says, "Dr. Strangelove."
mews, "I've enjoyed classics like 'Citizen Kane' and
'His Girl Friday', but I've also enjoyed such popular
films as 'Star Wars', 'Akara', 'Princess Mokono'
(sp?)...it's hard to choose just one..."
Recently in the garden Argon was doing a survey, and I
suggested maybe he could ask everyone what they think I'd
sound like if I had a voice. Argon suggested I write an
article on it, especially since a few furs in the park offered
suggestions. As for me, I always thought if I had a voice, it
would be a nice feminine voice, one that would have a bit of a
calming effect, like making others around me feel comfortable.
Some of the other comments furs make show maybe I'm wishing
for too much. :) I've heard several voices come up that I
might be like, here's a few of them: Bea Arthur, Fran Drescher,
Roseanne, and Rosie O'Donnell. After seeing that list, I think
maybe I am better off the way I am. :)
and Odd Books
Sometimes you get an idea in your head, like the creation of
SpinDizzy, for example. Sometimes, it goes a little
farther than you expected, like lasting for over three years.
Documenting important changes, meaning changes considered
important by SpinDizzy's
players, was given a boost this last Tuesday by Amy.
Amy gave Old and Odd Books its first exhibit, an old Bulletin
Board created for use on SpinDizzy in 1998. The BBoard still
belongs to her and has its old @when on it, which can be
accessed by looking at the plaque she made, located next to
the BBoard. (t #1735 to go
If you have something to exhibit, or questions about the
Exhibit or the store in general, please don't hesitate to
contact me. I'll see you at Odd Books, 1, e5 or t
#5970, and completely linkable.

||EDITORIAL: How to survive college OR The Zen of The Hangover.
College! It's that time of year again, when you have to spend less time on the MUCK
complaining about having nothing to do, due to the fact that you're now in classes complaining that you have too much
to do. But fear not! Former Newspaper Editor & World-Renowned
Cynic Maxl is here to help you ease that mind-numbing stress and still maybe get a C or two in your classes.
* Blot out any knowledge inadvertently absorbed over the week with as much drunken debauchery on the weekend as possible.
* Ignore your advisor. You know what degree you're getting better than they do.
* Skip classes, or sleep in them. Classes are for people much less intelligent than you, who don't already know everything.
* Contradict the professor. At random points in the lecture jump out of
your seat and scream 'Au contraire, mon frere!' or your choice of a line
from any 50s sci-fi flick about how there are Things Man Was Not Meant
* Drink. Your obvious superiority means you will never drink too much or at inappropriate
* Drink more.
* While taking tests, write answers in an incomprehensible language you invented while drinking.
Following these tips are sure to allow you to get through college!

Procedure for Submitting Articles
||Submitting a story
or artwork for @Action News is easy! Just send it to firstname.lastname@example.org,
or qmail or page Argon about it.
Most any type of story or article will be excepted.
Generally, we'd prefer things that aren't out and out lies or
flames about other folks, and have a basis in the reality of
SpinDizzy. The things reported don't have to have actually
happened, (Any more than anything that happens here does.) but
make sure you don't overstep the social boundaries and rules of
interaction that we have. These are pretty broad
guidelines, but we expect good sense to apply.
