There is no NES version. The series debuted on SNES. FAKE GEEK GIRL ALERT! (I tease!)
The Gamecube version is my favorite, but I really dig the SNES,DS and 3DS ones too! I main Mario, b/c yes, I'm that guy. You?

And she's an acquaintance at best. My friends are tighter w/ her than I am. At best I am 2X cooler.

Oops. So I wonder what game I was thinking of for my NES? I had a racing game that I loved, I think I just assumed it was Mario. We got our SNES when I like 7, some games blend.

And your enthusiasm for hedgies let's you stay at 3x cooler.

I was sitting around wondering when I started to feel so hungry and light headed when I realized it's almost 1pm and I haven't eaten all day.

OH THATS WHY.

My half-brother was an extra in the 2000's Robin Hood movie (I don't think he's visible on camera though).

The world is coming to an end.

@Kildread; Yes it's a remake. It was being filmed in a city not too far from here and my sister loved the original movie so she got a role as an extra.

She said it was so bad that it might not have even gotten a theater release; instead going straight to DVD. But the director ended up holding off on releasing the film until after Thor and the Avengers came out so Hemsworth got a lot of popularity. Thor was actually made AFTER Red Dawn, but with the release date being held back for a couple years the director was able to bank on the popularity of the actor to fuel sales.

/snort/

My sister said that they couldn't decide who the 'bad guy's' where going to be and ended up hiring Korean, Japanese, and Chinese actors to play a single Asian race. In the original film the 'bad guys' are the Soviet Union, in the remake they couldn't decide which Asian country they wanted the 'bad guys' to be from so they ended up hiring so many different actors of different nationalities that they just hoped American's couldn't tell the difference and would just believe they're all Korean..


Here's a picture of her with one of the military extras (I think he's an extra anyway, can't remember):


I haven't met him personally but he's tagged in the picture as Thanh Hoang. I am pretty sure he was an extra because I couldn't find him listed in the credits as anyone specific.

She played a high school student so the extras just had to bundle up in their grubbiest clothes for the part.

Despite all the stuff she said was so bad about the movie; she loved working in it and I bet it was a great time for her.

Bedroom's your own but the rest of it's shared). If you're really rolling in dough a private apartment, but I've met a grand total of one student who had that kind of money. And Toronto rent is really steep.
Yeah that's pretty much how it works. At my uni the halls of residence/on campus accommodation is a pretty wide range of quality. I was in the cheap shit halls with no real kitchen, the building itself was designed by a prison architect and boy could you tell. And then the highest quality buildings were like swanky apartments with big lounges and absurd prices.

Also see "Cabin in the Woods" for Whedon/Helmsworth. And that terrible "Witch Hunters" movie Jeremy Renner is in.

I don't have movie connections, but as expected, I have video game connections with people who helped make...Bioshock 1 + 2, Homefront, The Darkness 2, Warframe, and the new Star Trek game.

I hope you get to feeling better :\ If your feeling dizzy prior to throwing up maybe get your ears checked out? I know that various types of vertigo can be surprisingly common and seem to come from issues in the ear canal and various ear..parts :P A friend of mine has an abnormal build up of wax that accumulates in her ears so every 6 months or so she has to go in and have her ears cleaned out at the doctors. Otherwise she looses part of her hearing and get's vertigo-like symptoms until getting the wax removed.

That said, it's not really recommended that the average person get's their ears cleaned unless it's specifically recommended to do so. Most doctors even scorn at using Q-tips to dry your ears out after a shower and other similar things. So I wouldn't immediately try to start digging in your ear or anything.

Shelby; For some reason we're not friends on FB even though I totally remember accepting your request ages ago. So since I can't post this on your page I am going to post the 'Tooth' concept here:



I sent you another FB request so I am going to upload it there as well and tag you with it if you accept.

So, this is a thing that I WILL be attending. Come hell or high water:

Senshimatsuri.com

Meghan said she'd come with me, which earns her all the girlfriend points since she's not a huge Sailor Moon fan.
