  15. @Anon: As many may have already noticed, I absolutely LOVE creepy things. And crazy things...and funny things. Horror, psychological thrillers, and comedies are the greatest genres ever created.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  25. any update ian a reply or somthing it feels weird to not have anything happend in two days on your blog

    ReplyDelete
  26. Sry if this seems off topic but... Ian I know that ur a fan of Avatar and all but I just saw it. And it has got to be the most overrated, stupid movie i hav seen in a while! What do u see in it?!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I could go on a huge, long winded, Bible's worth of text on that subject but I'll simply just say: I love everything!

    I'll expand on that though by saying, first off, I love the language most of all. 2nd the acting is top notch and the visuals are kick-ass (especially in 3D). I find the story to be quite powerful and, while it's obviously been told before, I find this to be the best version of it by far (Dances with Wolves can suck it! :P). I love the details put into everything and I love the overall pacing of the movie. There's the perfect amount of everything, action, romance, dialog, whatever. Finally, I love the emotion behind the movie, only movie ever to make me truly feel for the characters.

    Anyway, the only bad thing I can find is that many of the characters are quite stereotypical. However, I think that's one reason why it's so popular is that it's easily accessible be people of all ages and demographics due to it's simplistic storyline and easily recognizable characters.

    If anything, I ask to you, what don't you like about it? Or are you one of those people who doesn't like something if it's popular (there seems to be a lot of those type of people these days)?

    P.S. Yes I love Avatar, no I'm not painting myself blue and running around in the woods.


    P.P.S. ...yet

    ReplyDelete
  28. @Corky64: What? How? Wha?

    ...oe ke lu skxawng, oe lu txantsan tute! Txantsan nìwotx. Pelun nga fpìl a oe lu skxawng?

    ReplyDelete
  29. corky english plese. also what i ment on update was any new progres on life barneys mind ep2 redone or the q and a?

    ReplyDelete
  30. Ah, the wonders of Google. Too bad I could only find an English to Na'vi translator... xD

    ReplyDelete
  31. Ah, well that explains why you were a little off on the translations.

    Ah, well, I don't have anything really to update on yet. I'll post here as soon as something happens.

    ReplyDelete
  32. For the folks that need to know, I basically told Ian not to be a moron.

    ReplyDelete
  33. And I told Corky that "I'm not a moron, I'm an awesome person! Totally awesome! Why am I a moron?"

    ReplyDelete
  34. Only totally awesome people consider running around the woods being blue!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Don't paint yourself blue. You don't blend in with the people prancing around in orange.

    ReplyDelete
  36. If Portal were an interpretive dance, white, blue, and orange people could prance around together and have it be more awesome than anything the world has ever seen. *_*;

    ReplyDelete
  37. uh.. wow another wise sayings from cyh

  40. 3rd time's the charm >_>

    Cyh, that would be an awesome fan film.

    My question for the Q&A is this:
    Would any of you consider doing a live-action version of your show? If not playing through a set as your character, or doing regular things in real life as your character, how about a musical, where you edit everyone in? With a cameo by Ross Scott?!?!?

    P.S. If all my comments made it, then please delete the previous ones ^_^

    ReplyDelete
  41. ...All of them made it. O_o;

    Hmm...if only I knew how to dance. Perhaps Dancing with the Stars would be willing to take it on? To the tune of "Still Alive"?

    ReplyDelete
  42. Geez o.O I'm really sorry T_T I waited a few minutes and checked with other browsers, but they weren't there, so I posted it again >_<

    Maybe finger puppets? I know that Ian is good with his fingers! :D (counter-strike)

    ReplyDelete
  43. That's what she said... :P

    lol, if someone can find me some half life finger puppets I will do a show with them.

    ReplyDelete
  44. @Cyh I was referring that the orange people were hunters because they wear orange vests while hunting (here in Wisconsin anyway).

    ReplyDelete
  45. @LakituWHOA!: I know. I just took it a step further with the colors. Interpretive Portal dance is way cooler than Hunter vs. Smurf.

    ReplyDelete
  46. @Cyh Oh ok. I am no expert on interpretive dance at all so I didn't know what exactly you were saying.

    @Capt. Riley: I loved your interview and thought it was cool. I have two questions for you here because I don't have Skype and all. At which level did you play Barney's Mind on and what are some tips as to playing "hard" level? I have had so many ammo issues and health issues when playing on hard and wondered what tips you could give me.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Hey Ian, i'm the one who asked you about Avatar. sry it took so long to respond i've been to Hell(A.K.A. Football Camp). First off, It's not that I don't like a movie cuz it's popular, it's cuz it's popular that I hav great expcectations for it, as someone once said "Hollywood gives us more of what we pay for."
    Second, this url,
    http://moviechopshop.com/2009/12/31/most-overrated-movie-of-2009-avatar/
    puts anything in my head concerning the movie into words. Third, I understand the "If it ain't broke don't fix it" mentality, but I hated the whole Pochahontas with blue people thing. Also, I do agree that the movie had GREAT visuals, however, graphics don't make a movie. At all. One last thing, I don't mean to attack you personally or call names or anything but, as much as the language may be Beautiful, if you are taking the time to learn the language, that's fine and all but I just think that is kinda... weird. Anyway that url I posted sums it all up better than I can. All in all, I'd just agree to disagree but I'd like you to check out the URL and tell me what you think.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Ya, I saw Avatar to. Don't ya remember the good ol days when the Human race was the good guys and the aliens were the bad guys? I don't mean to sound stupid by saying that, but I hate the demonization of the humans!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Humans aren't perfect either even though we pursue it. It isn't demonetization, it's just a reality check sometimes. I supported the Iraq War with the reasons that were given, but what made me mad about our government is that we tortured, despite the government's claim it was legal. It may of been, but I don't condone it. I come from a long line of military families, and my grandfather worked at a German POW camp in Southeast Georgia during WWII. At least under FDR, they were well treated compared to the way we tortured innocent Arabs recently. I don't believe in torture, period.

    ReplyDelete
  50. @Anon: Sure, agree to disagree, I see your points and think that they boil down to opinion.

    Anyway, as for the language, I totally agree. I never understood why people wanted to learn Klingon (and still don't really understand fully) but I can now see the appeal and the reason behind it. I guess it's one of those things that unless it's something you'd really enjoy you just don't understand why it's so much fun. Kind of like growing orchids, I've seen some people go crazy nuts about that kind of thing. To me, they're just some plants, why spend so much time in a green house puttering over them?

    Anyway, I do hope that we'll see a little more innovative character development in Avatar 2 with the same old kick ass visuals and setting and the (in my opinion) good acting by the cast.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Ya, it is a matter of opinion in some areas. But, whatever, you liked the movie and I was unimpressed. Agree to disagree, right? Well it was an interesting discussion.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I just thought that Avatar was Battle for Terra but with amped up effects.

    ReplyDelete
  53. hey corkey are you planing to do another mind ytp like you did last time? it was awsome exectp for the chell part that was just weird

    ReplyDelete
  54. new question to Q&A:
    Does Krimsin consider himself as a "nerd"? :D

  59. Question for Cyh: In your interview, you said that you first came across barney and sheperds mind as your inspiration. Was Freeman's Mind the last series you saw? And what is your favorite out of all the minds (besides your own)?

    ReplyDelete
  60. hey guys heres a q&a question: how about you all work together i mean form your own website
    like ross has for acursed farms execpt yours would be the home for barneys chells felix parker and shephard it could be called gatherd minds you could have all your minds on this site do news\blog post wear people can coment and this site could have other stuff too also you can share ideas and work together on your difrent minds.


    sorry if i rambled thre but its a awsome idea isent it i mean this site could be the power house for minds for many people anyway what do you think of my idea? plese look at this question. any way good day

    ReplyDelete
  61. on your interview ian you said your not sure how a azure sheep mind would work well first it could be a alternet unaverse were the blackmesa incendent did not happend untill 3 years after it was supposed to happend that way barney would have dumped luran and started dateing kate. this is just a idea

    ReplyDelete
  62. hey ian anything new going on? new vid soon? wasup?

    ReplyDelete
  63. so when can we expect a new vid or something?

    ReplyDelete
  64. Hopefully fairly soon, still crazy busy at work and I'm trying to chew through some back log of other projects and what not. That said, I'm hoping to take a day off or two from work soon and that will give me A LOT more free time to get shit done. Don't worry though, it will happen sooner rather than later.

    ReplyDelete
  67. @anon: I know, what a shame. I hope they realize soon that they're being idiots. That is probably the biggest press they've ever gotten for that movie.

    ReplyDelete
  68. hey guys if your intrestided in playing the pc version of half life decay download it at decay.halflifecreations.com

    ReplyDelete
  69. ian do i have to get the steam version of blue shift and opfor to play it or can i just get it off of ebay?
    i would like to know cause i have never played blue shift or opfor.
    also if i do get it off of ebay will it work on a windows xp?

    ReplyDelete
  70. Either one will work. I prefer the steam version though. You can buy the ebay one and enter the CD key into steam and download it. That's what I did.

    You can get the HD pack over steam too: http://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/Half-Life_High_Definition_Content

    so ian sorry for sound like a picky jerk but can i just get the game? just go on ebay get the game install it and play it on the xp without steam?

  76. Yeah, the steam version will not have opfor music (I don't think so anyway) or an orange hud. The bouncy models are a problem with the original engine, not the steam version, I believe.

    In any case, if you want to have a true stock version then just buy the ebay one and install it without steam.

    ReplyDelete
  77. i have another question if i do get blue shift\opfor bonus game what would i miss by not getting steam? i mean im glade that i can get it non steam but im curios.

    also if i decide to add steam affter i alredy got the nonsteam working what would i have to do?

    and just to be clear: can it work on xp without steam?

    ps. im sorry for sounding like a ungreatful jerk in my previous posts

    ReplyDelete
  78. You wouldn't miss out on anything that I know of aside from the ease of use of steam. As far as I know they are for all purposes identical.

    You would just have to uninstall the non-steam version and put the CD key into steam and let steam download it.

    I believe it will work on steam (and it should) but have never tested this.

  79. If you're going to make a group website it should be called Hive Minds.

  80. how about cursed minds

    ReplyDelete
  81. or how about mind power

    ReplyDelete
  82. guys i have decided that the only way for anyone to get a half life decay mind off the ground is that some one should hold a contest for ladys to try thare luck at becoming the voice's for cross and green.

    ReplyDelete
  83. @Anon: You might have noticed that ladies are scarce on the internet. Gamer chicks, at least.

    ReplyDelete
  84. @Cyh: That's what makes it even cooler to be on of them. But it's not like we (Internet surfing gamer girls/women) need help, huh?

    ReplyDelete
  87. ella if your interested in doing a hl decay mind i would watch it. but only if its good.

    ReplyDelete
  88. What's even funnier is that that the ratio of men and women on the internet is pretty much 50/50 XD

    ReplyDelete
  89. @Anon: Yeah, there are girls on the 'net, but the kind of girl who would start a machinima series on her own...?

    (TT_TT It's lonely in here....)

    ReplyDelete
  90. @Anon I don't think I could really do that. One, I don't own the game. (MAJOR block there.) And two, I don't know if I would fit the character. Plus, I'm currently working on something.
    @Cyh *Patpat*

    ReplyDelete
  91. well you can download it at modb or decay.halflifecreation.com. just think ella you and cyh together in a mind project!

  106. Okay, I'm free at last (and in mild shock). My deepest apologies for the uber-long wait. School almost killed me, I wrecked my car, and my grandparents were visiting. ~_~ Ah, it's good to survive.

    So are you free this week some time to do the Q&A? After I go through and sort out the better questions, I'll be sending it to everyone for approval.
