Comments Come Lately: Mr. Black!

Before we begin... yes, yes, I'm alive.  And no, that's not a picture of me.  While I have the muscles to pull this off (ahem), pink is definitely not my color.

But I support me some Unicorns!  Your Strictly Average Unicorn is much, much nicer than say, your Strictly Average Master Manipulator (every store needs one) or Evil Homer.

Anyway.  Expect the two aforementioned not-so-notables to say something clever.  Just remember, the dude in this picture could totally stomp your butt.

Then poke it.  He's got natural weapons.

Hoof, hoof, horn, for the Dungeons and Dragons geeks out there.

You all disgust me.  Just not as much as Brent does.

I emailed Big Red and asked him for the week off.  Normally if I'm tired - like I was on Monday - I'll push the Terrible Tuesday back a day, but this time I figured it was best to take the whole week.

Mildly interesting is my article would have been similar to what Reecius posted today!  I've been interested in types of armies lately; what with MSU and KPD (Kill Point Denial) being so important to the meta, they naturally had a spot in the outline.  This is another reason to have the long delayed Footdar against Footdar extravaganza match!

Still, Reecius wrote his article and I begged off mine - check it out HERE and see what you think.

Moving on... I don't worry about posting with the same frequency of days gone by, but still Strictly Average shoots for three to four posts a week.  I just don't force it.  I was quasi-busy, you see...

This week, me and the guys recorded Episode 26 of OffTopical:  our little amalgam of sketch comedy and topical conversation, which is actually drawing good numbers on iTunes these days.  Also, there's Skyrim.

Yea, I've been Skyrimmed.  It's a thing.

Okay, here's the Comments Come Lately, from an Mr. Black article on Bell and featuring my boy Synn.

Okay - not much to say!

But say it anyway...

Skyrim is the devil! I don't know how but someway, somehow I stopped playing it and I have remembered this wonderful thing called sunlight... It is amazing!

SWTOR has been my failing since December. So I hear what you are saying. I finally managed to not log in last night, only to go upstairs to thumb through the unpaid bills and found the Gamefly envelope with Skyrim in it... DOH!

Hey I think I'm going to FOB. You in?

SinSynn said...

So many lost to Skyrim, for months now...

So far I've managed to avoid it...
But only cuz I'm cracked out on World of Tanks.

I haz shame.

Itchy said...

I'm disenchanting a set of Orc Gauntlets of Extreme Archery as I type this. Please. Help. Me.

Evil Homer said...

I won't take the bait....I won't take the bait....

On another note my 8 year old plays skyrim like an addict.

Black Blow Fly said...

This is very interesting to say the least. I think you might be on to something here. Like I said its very interesting.

Why Brent,why?

(A new favorite!) Anon: I haven’t even bothered playing a game of 6th yet, cause I have read the rules, and actually understand how they interact with units. I know my armies no longer function how they should, and so I need to change them.

Strictly Average: 'cause 6-inches is all you get.

Stalking Jawaballs since 2009.

Jawaballs: "My butt just tightened up."

Brent, preferred 2-to-1 over Not Brent in a recent, scientific poll.

Brent: emptied the Kool Aid and DRINKING YOUR MILKSHAKE with an extra-long straw.

Unicorns don't exist.

Home of the Stormbuster, the Dyson Pattern Storm Raven.

I'm a comment whore and this whore is getting no play.

Not Brent hurts Brent's feelings.

I think, therefore I blog.

"You should stop writing for everyone else and worry about your crappy blog." - Anon.

Not Brent has been spotted lurking around with a green marker.

He's not like a bad guy from a cartoon, all devious but never quite evil, Not Brent is bad beans, man, bad beans.

Dethtron: "Again I feel obliged to remind you that trying to sound smart only works if you are."

MVB: "I am not one to join the unwashed masses of self-titled 40k experts out there distributing advice from their blogs about exactly how your list should be built..."

Shiner Bock on tap: that's how I choose hotels.

Strictly Average: The Home of Hugs and Gropings.

Don't feed the trolls!

MoD: "Welcome to Brent's head."

Competitive is Consistent.

Dethtron: "...you could use that extra time to figure out a way to get your panties unbunched and perform a sandectomy on your vagina."

Dethtron: “When calling someone an idiot, it's generally best to avoid making grammatical mistakes.”

Warboss Stalin: "You know, if it actually WAS funny, maybe I wouldn't mind."

Mike Brandt: "It's not a successful bachelor party if you don't misplace someone".

"The Master Manipulator (every store needs one): "...now, enough stroking."

Kirby: "I don't know about gropings. Seriously, Brent, keep it in the pants, please."

Loquacious: "No matter how hard I tried, I couldn't get Hugs & Gropings or Stalks Jawaballs into Brent's little tribute."

Captain Kellen: "I rate this article a Brent on the Faith Hill to Nancy Pelosi scale!"

Drathmere: "Come for the balls, stay for the Brent? Kind of disturbing, man."

Go no further, lest thee see something thine eyes would fain look past!

Isabelle: "So, thank you for supporting your local and not so local unicorns. A noble gesture like that can show some scared kids out there that they don't have to hide from everyone and it's ok to be who they really are."

There is nothing more interesting than We The People... in all our beautiful, ugly glory!

On Internet Advice: You see, I have an almost religious belief that's it's a huge, colossal waste of time.

...I think I'll call it the Gun Shy Pattern Stormbuster, because after the Internet destroyed my first humble effort, I find I'm a bit worried about the reaction to this one.

Lauby: "Is it left over from that time you thought that you could just complete step one 12 times to meet the mandates of that court order?"

Not Brent: "I guess we'll have to read on and find out. Signed, Not Brent. Especially today."

Cynthia Davis: "I think the scrolling text is from Glen Beck's new book."

Grimaldi: "Spamming certain units creates interesting possibilities but also fatal weaknesses."

Purgatus: "Math can inform decisions. It cannot make decisions."

Thoughts? Comments? Hugs and gropings?

You'd be that much quicker to figure out what I mean when I refer to a Unicorn if I covered it in a rainbow flag.

SinSynn: (To Brent) "Curse you and your insidious influence on the internets..."

Dave G (N++): "You know you're an internet celebrity when your following is more akin to tabloids."

I prefer the term Internet Personality (or IP) myself, seeing as how I coined it.

Lauby: "Your attempt to humanize him as failed. I feel nothing but scorn for his beard - it's like a warcrime or something."

BBF: "I've always thought you are a good player but I finally figured out that you are a great player. It's hard to see sometimes because your personality is engaging, sincere and quite charming - to me that is kind of a rare combination."

'Clearly cheating?' I didn't misspeak: you jumped to conclusions. If you'd like to apologize I'll be happy to send you an autographed picture of my ass.


I thought I was doing alright before I realized I was losing.

Age and treachery beats youth and vigor every time.
