User Content Friday - Playing to (Almost) Win

When Dethtron and I started this thing called HoP, a major part of our conceptual framework was the idea of inclusiveness.  Be it different game systems, languages, play styles or even level of abilities we wanted HoP to be a place for EVERYONE.  Above all though, we wanted to make sure the entire spectrum between WAAC and FAAC is represented.  Because in truth, we believe that most gamers are somewhere in the middle and, at their core, just want to have a good game.  Enter Gmort and his secret recipe Chaotica: 

I have a reasonably well-deserved reputation for being good at 40K. I’m pretty good at optimising lists and can get the best out of most armies. I also enjoy winning (Don't we all?), as I am a very competitive person by nature.

There is one thing I enjoy almost as much as winning though…and that’s almost winning.

However the most fun of all comes from...almost losing.

That last statement probably requires some explanation.

Where in the World is Lantz? - Strangers From Foreign Lantz

So, it turns out that creating a Lantz post is extremely hard after we missed last week and after my own six-day internet drought.

I think I've managed to piece things together.

First up - Lantz:

Lantz sez:  "This is what happens when I lose a game. Every. Time. I don't have a lot of friends..."

Second - Lauby (since there seems to be some confusion):
Please note that I am a completely separate person.

The Weekly Top X - Most of Your Base are Belong to Lauby

America's wang...  hahaha.  How does Dethtron come up with that stuff?  Amirite, Brent?  Brent?


Looks like I'm riding solo.  Well, that's what happens when you fail to ask for an extra day off from work so you can get settled down from your six day vacation and then forget to make Top X selections until the last possible minute, all the while relying on a talented but increasingly busy pool of people.  This sentence brought to you by Auretious Taak.  Oh well, its good for the soul and a great way to get back in the grove of running the best breakfast- food joke-titled blog in ze verld.

Cyber Monday Update

With Lauby still out traveling around America's wang (aka Florida) for the Thanksgiving holiday, it has fallen on me to tell you that there are no major updates and goings on at the moment here at Paincakes central.

Weekly Whimsy- Show Some Skin

[Welcome to Weekly Whimsy! Making a minor change this week. Going to paint pictures with pictures today, rather than words.]

Show Your Scars- Metallica, Broken, Beaten & Scarred

Tattoos have become more and more commonplace in society lately. With shows like Miami and LA Ink, we've been expose to the business of the trade and seen the many varied stripes of folks that pursue  modification of their bodies. With Kat Von D and Jesse James appearing as top gossip fodder in tabloids, and style magazines devoting sections to celebrity skin, American culture has begun to see ink as common place.

It used to be that ink was reserved for felons and fighters (ie, soldiers of some type). Now markings and color have crossed into safe territory, and we're seeing things like this regularly:

I don't really mind a well done tramp stamp- it's kind of refreshing in comparison to the many ill-considered permanent additions to a person I've seen.
