Brown doesn't suit you

@ Sound I would venture a guess that you do not have a girlfriend, or interact socially with anyone of the female persuasion. 

I'm scared for you.

If you need a quick primer in trash talking, I suggest renting White Men Can't Jump. After that, you'll be money.

Ummm.... I still think soccer had a better model but I bow to this one because it's the only one we have. But I still need to understand the basics: so the people who go in the losers' bracket write a second story, but also the winners write a second story? so then half the winners and half the losers actually lose the round?

And that's just the first round, or every round?

Wait, wait, I'm coming up with a war avatar. Don't read this before I get one!

Ha. Funny story about Slayer. I used to be am a metal/rock/punk chick. I was a bouncer at a punk rock club in Austin Texas, and I got into Slayer by peer pressure. My favourite album was South of Heaven (followed by Seasons in the Abyss). Then my boyfriend took me to see Slayer at La Zona Rosa and it was awful, not because of the music, but because of the Slayer fans. I had a kind of girl-fit halfway through and made him leave early because I couldn't take the oogling by fat hairy guys without social skills any more. I associate Slayer with their fans.

Nowadays my husband is in law school and working 40 hours a week for the VA so he listens to Slayer constantly to unwind. We squabble about it regularly. He's gotten a modicum of revenge by getting me pretty intensely into Iron Maiden.

(and now I want to embed The Trooper in the next page. Dammit.)

@JR The lovely song you're listening to right now is Slayer. They are the ULTIMATE metal band. Their singer is Brazilian (right?) and had surgery to repair a headbanging-induced injury. Fans carve their name into their forearms (and oogle me at concerts). Henry Rollins listens to them when he works out on the elliptical machine.
