Semi-Daily, Bunches of fun!


We can has Forum!

The G.I.C. has decided to expand into a forum! Post will continue here, but now you all can interact with each! There a live text chat too!

Zombie, Zombie, Zombie!

I have found a new distraction. “Project Zomboid” is a isometric 2d zombie apocalypse sim!  The details are incredible!  I’m not going to spoil it for you but,  The first time I played this I accidentally burned down my house, the neighbors house, and the local apartment complex. It’s only $8 and it’ll include non-zombie diseases and a working water system (That may or may not get interrupted) sometime in the near future. There’s a free demo on their site at

along with more info. Go, Fight, Die!  (or you know, run away you cowards.)

Mall Ninjas. Wow.

This probably the wierdest forum thread I ‘ve seen in a while.  Basicly, Two people (Gecko45 and SPECOPS) that are completely off their nut, Log onto a tactical weapons site and start spouting all manner of  wild stupidity.

It’s here in it’s entirety but I’ll post the best bits here.

The Bolded sections are waaaay out there.


I am the Sergeant of a three-man Rapid Tactical Force at one of America’s largest indoor retail shopping areas. Although there are typically between fifteen and twenty normal security officers working the beat there, we decided a while ago that it would be best to have a specilized force for violent individuals. We use modified electric vehicles and can be anywhere on a given floor within eight and a half minutes.Naturally, the regular security people are unarmed. We “RTFers”, by arrangement with the local police, carry high-strength OC spray and batons.

We meet at the range every night and shoot 400 rounds each through weapons that closely resemble our duty setup. We also practice unarmed combat. I am a Master of three martial arts including ninjitsu, which means I can wear the special boots to climb walls. I don’t think any of you are working as hard as I am to be prepared. I asked a serious question about tactical armor and I wanted a serious response. If you want to laugh at somebody, try laughing at the sheep out there who go to the mall unarmed trusting in me to stand guiard over their lives like a God.


We were previuosly restricted to .38’s and two Mossberg 500’s with less leathel rounds in them, but when our team saved the life and possibly the virginity of the Mayor’s nephew, there was a special relaxation of the rules made for us, due to the factt that the nepheew(who will remain nameless to rpevent a scandal) was saved by us using weapons better than our issue setup, so now we have good funding for gear for our jobs, and we needed to find relaible SMG’s, but the HK’s just wouldn’t cut it.

(Mono here, See what I mean? Off. The flipping. Deep end.)


BTW A one time experiementation while in the military, does not make one a homosexual. It’s when you practice it daily, like yourself, that you become a homosexual.



Same with those mindless teenyboppers who go to the Hickory Farms store, and then take double samples of fruitcake and cheeselog, you warn them that they will be charged with a felony(grand theft), and that if they attempt to fight and run, they will be, unfortunately, first tazered, and if they continue to resist violently with intent to maim, then wounded.


(Mono – WTF? Shooting someone over a cheese log? Sheesh what a grump.)



But then again I think of the mayors nephew, his face distored with tears and terror, the GAP employees who asked for my autograph, and had to settle for a cover identity’s signature, the flashbangs, and their acrid scent, the small of napalm in the evening breeze, as I crouch behind a shopping cart in the parking lot, the target practice with my dearest comrades and friends, the members of my teams, and our live fire exercises-Can I leave it all behind? should I?


We have a name for guys like you in the “industry”: fecal-freaks. One time I had to do an dynamic entry on the ladies bathroom, because some freak had snuck in there and was trying to smear excrement on one of the lady patrons.


(Mono- Ladies and gents, A dynamic entry is dynamic because of the explosives used. Since when do people blow up bathroom doors? Since when are bathroom doors constructed that well?)


That, is the myth of the mall ninja. It’s hilarious.


Till next time, Mono.


Violence. Again.

So, Oakland is still as stable as ever. And with the protesters in wall street being evicted, odds are the overall stability of the country will decrease. Still as fun as ever.


Over the weekend the members of the GIC went to various  locations for some well deserved R & R  and have returned relatively bright eyed and bushy tailed. (Might need to get that looked at Tim.)  Next podcast should be up sometime this week barring difficulties.

But until then, First “V for vendetta style” surveillance truck! Now the police can hear the hum of your televisons, the click of your computer mice, and the horrid whine of those vacuum shaped objects in you closets!  I’m taking bids on how long before someone slashes it’s tires.

Podcast #1 01/17/12



Myself and Tim in the first ever G.I.C. Podcast!

Government acting like SOPA is already passed. Oh, And the Internet war.

This morning  The U.S. Government arrested the owners  of, and shut down  “” One of the worlds largest filesharing sites on the grounds of criminally violating  United states copyright laws.   Now, Here’s the kicker, The website was Completely shutdown, without any due process, or trial. Now, since nobody else seems to be saying it, they always responded to files that were illegally uploaded. Even, in some cases being over zealous with their files deletions.

Now, don’t get me wrong, if they did it, they did it and they should be Dealt with accordingly.  But  the authority’s had no right to shut the site down without due process.  Also,  How did they get the  chat logs?  Now, Correct me if I’m wrong but don’t the police need permission to retrieve chat logs?

Plus, Megaupload Provided hosting for many legitimate files. For instance, The podcast for the site was hosted on megaupload.  That wasn’t in violation of a copywrite law but, yet, I still lost my hosting capabilities.  Megaupload was probably engaging in illicit activities. But the way the site was taken down, (Foreign servers as well I believe) with no warning is the essence of the SOPA laws.  It’s just a small taste of whats to come if that bill passes.

Also, in retaliation for shutting down MegaUpload, The Hacker group Anonymous Hacked the DoJ, MIAA, MPAA, recordlabel EMI, French copyright authority HADOPI, The  US Copyright Office, Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Site, And Universal Music’s Main website. All of them are, as of this post, Totally FUBARed. Over 5,600 DoSers(?) at once.

The Internet war is heating up.  Hold on to your hats people.

Yours Faithfully until the internet dies,

Mono The Elderish


I am proud to present the inaugural G.I.C. Podcast!    Due to hosting issues with wordpress the podcast is available through this link. The download is roughly 104 mb and features myself and Tim, One of two new contributors to the G.I.C.

A treatise on the Wonder of a particular online comic.

Read it. I just fond this Comic and I loved it. Witty and hilarious. And theres a talking mutant cat. What not to love?    I can’t say any more about except that its now On my reading list and it’s not going anywhere  Except maybe higher on the list.

The drawing is of the main character and was taken off the authors Deviant Art profile, Located here.  That is, The Picture.



Found a better picture. 

Marmitilious! (Marmite + Delicious) Which, Is incorrect.

Several days ago I was in the midst of a moderately bad cold. My dad, Paradigm of kindness that he is, Gave me a big spoonful of marmite. Its funny, I’ve never felt the urge to projectile vomit without having the stomach flu before. -_- I don’t think your supposed to eat marmite by the spoonful. It’s extremely salty along with a slightly nutty flavor and it’s never coming in this house again. I hear Vegimite is supposed to be better so I might be convinced to try that but Marmite is black-listed.  Well, After I finish this jar. (heh….heh….ha….haha……. bwahaHAHAHAAHAHAAA!  *Sniff* No but really this jar of marmite is probably going to buried with me. )

I really should watch what that man tries to push on me. First the Elderberry crap, Then the Marmite. Let alone what he MADE me eat when I was a kid. *shudder*

Watch what you eat. For your own safety.

Time Stealers! Yay!

Hessians. (british hired french mercenary regiment)

Empire: Total War.  Its how the cool kids get out their world domination tendencies.   If you’ve ever played any of the “Total War” series this pretty much the same just streamlined and with naval battles.

I swear, This game is incredible.  I mean, I could get out all my benevolent Dictorial impulses. I mean, I don’t, (I’m a despotic son of a gun. ) But in theory, A person with a soul could.

In other news, I’m  sick with the sniffles.  My father, suggested that amongst other more common remedy’s (Mainly cough medicene) elderberry extract. Its this evil looking black liquid that suggests that its some kind of laxitive. Tastes like one too. But there’s no gag reflex so it’s alright with me. Not sure if it helped but it sure didn’t hurt either so, *shrug*

I’m just going to give the News a pass today. It all sucks. If your really curious just check out drudge report.
