Wow, Chopin's Funeral March is a more complex and beautiful piece of music than I would've guessed, given its ubiquity in pop culture.

Thanks, AWN, for providing me the flimsy context I needed to appreciate classical music.

I met a traveller from an antique land
Who said: `Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed.
And on the pedestal these words appear --
"My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!"
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.'
"everytime I try to draw xen I end up drawing a kangaroo smoking a cigar while chainsawing a tree" - Deoxy
"I can't believe I'm the only person who voted Stallone. His appeal lies in watching is movies again and again just to hear what the hell he's talking about." - Kilteh

When AWN dies, WWN posts Chopin and Shelley.

I can't help but imagine what this thread would've looked like on AWN would that WWN died.

I met a traveller from an antique site
Who said: `Two vast and case-less servers of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them, emanating light,
Half sunk, a shattered monitor lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled casing, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its webmaster well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless accounts,
The hand that typed them and the gifs that fed.
And on the monitor these words appear --
"My name is AWN, king of kings:
Look on my posts, ye Mighty, and despair!"
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
A lone and level kitty spam stretches far away.'

Hmmm... I hope the Totally Flaked! comics are archived somewhere other than those forums. :geshrug:

Otherwise, that would be another gem lost to this massive :bh: Black Hole.

Ok? Do you guys promise?

Um ok. Here's their site: http://www16.plala.or.jp/sirataki_001/g ... eatop.html

I've never been to Comiket but the site says they've been active for over 8 years and just attended the most recent one.

Their latest creation is called Battle Anecdotes and is 70 pages and only costs 7 Dolllars USD and is non-porn.

Haha nice find. The translation goes:

Title: New Weapon.

Sonja: Ugh, man just a little more power would be nice
Kid: Leave it to me Genius Cat, I'll fulfill your declaration!
Kid: Done!
Kid: The famous, the wonderful: Dad's sock!

This joke is much better delivered in the comic though.

Judging by HPD's avatar which gives a better look, the ''kid'' is lash. The classic goth top and a remote control.

Ah I bet you're right. Rereading she is using a polite form of "father". It could either mean she is a young kid referring to her father. Or that she is referring with fondness to Sonja's father. So, maybe a better translation would have been "Lash: The famous, the wonderful: the Old Man's sock!"

Closer inspection reveals a cute monster teeth too, hah. I demand of somebody that they make a avatar gallery out of this.. I couldn't work the navigation of the site out, but I didn't bother to activate google translate yet.

Hmm, it seems to have had a change of address. It is thusly a zombie, and therefore boring. As such, I second the notion to discuss AW formography.
