Are we the first generation to have to question ourselves about having 'feelings' for unreal characters... how many of our long dead colleagues have found Betty Boop a bit of a turn on? Jessica Rabbit? Lara Croft? Varoomschka (or something like that from a long dead Guardian sattire comic strip...) Judge Anderson, She-Hulk, Ivy from Soul Calibur, Wonder Woman... It's long been doccumented that prisoners will draw very rudimantary representations of 'ladies' on their prison walls...
and LOVE them... as graphic artists are able to create realler and realler graphic ladies for us saddoes that spend more time tapping a keyboard than tapping their real partners enter buttons, is it not somewhat inevitable that we will increasingly spend time drooling over non-existant lovelies? Or down to the real question... Is that just me???!!!
LOL!

gnome said...

uhm... father krishna... uhm.... right... But Betty Boop had real class though...

Nice post here Elderly. May I also add that dear Alyx is one of the few non slutty female game characters. Kudos to Valve...

DEITRIX said...

You guys have Jack the Ripper over there or what...???

You better bring the Ho's inside....!

The Elderly said...

i spent so much of my youth drooling over ladies whom i had absolutely no chance with, drooling over Computor generated models isn't such a stretch of the imagination.

Indeed Ipswitch appear to have a serial killer or killers.....

Indeed mr.Gnome Alyx is a lady you could bring home to your mother and know immediately they'd bond, low maintenance too, with the added bonus you could probably switch her off during the football..... theres something else i should be considering but can't for the life of me remember......

gnome said...

Is it jack the Ripper, dear Deitrix just mentioned? Or, are you consdering to analy disgrace the critics who didn't enjoy W. Allen's Scoop?

DEITRIX said...

Well if its Jack, he's well over a 100 years old...

The Elderly said...

Gnome not so sure it would be a disgrace.... closest some of the critics have come to direct human contact....

Hiya Deitrix... .geriatric care has improved considerably.... it possible....









though highly unlikely...

fatherkrishna said...

Jeez! Gnome I think you wer perplexed by my drunken ramblings, Elderly I think you got straight onto it!
The Ipswich thing is VERY disturbing... we seem to have a ripper type turn up on a regular basis... This is a very disturbing trend... And not a topic of conversation suitable for such a lovely site as this. But what is particularly disheartening is the number of 'topical' sick jokes that have appeared on my mobile belittling the events of what has happened... from 'friends'.
On that sombre note I'm off. Aren't some topics beyond the realms of a 'joke'?

fatherkrishna said...

Oh lighten up you drunken/morbid fool!
Jeez! Look what happens when you look at innebriated comments in the cold light of day...
Drink anyone?

The Elderly said...

fatherkrish once again your profound thought has made me ponder, you are of course quite correct, for any tragedy it appears us humans tend to "lighten" the situation, but some events should be beyond the realms of humour......

now about that drink

(produces two waterford crystal whisky glasses.....)

gnome said...

So, that was a *real* murder? Dear...

fatherkrishna said...

Ah! a hair of the dog... such a quality beverage in such quality drinking vessels...
elderly, you do spoils us...

The Elderly said...

...conjures another crystal whisky glass for gnome..... (lifts glass..) cheers FC, if it weren't for you we would't be drinking at this time of the morning..... well.... virtually at least.....

They showed a clip of one of the women taken on a train on the day she was murdered, too freaky for words.....

gnome said...

fuck! Nasty!

Right.

Change of subject, then...

Anyone seen Anal Invaders 2: The Revenge?

fatherkrishna said...

Anal Invaders???
... for once lost for words...
OUCH! (FK sits on blow up cushion and remains in a catatonic state...)

The Elderly said...

(about to raise his hand... reconsiders... adopts innocent expression....)

ahmmm no can't say as I did..... I did see the revenge of bambi though..... loved the bit where he kicks a deerhunter to death with his hooves..... sorry im gone way off topic...

anal invaders you say? that must have had the audience glued to their seats.......

gnome said...

In the most literal of senses...

Still

My humour is dead. Damn!

The Elderly said...

....am no... not dead.... (pokes Gnomes humour)

see still displaying signs of elasticity and springiness........
