E14 Exchange

Brad: I may be a bit late on tonight, I’ve got a doctor’s appointment quite late.
Rob: Everything okay?
Brad: Yeah, just got a really bad back. It’s probably nothing, but I thought I’d get it checked out.
Rob: Makes sense. If they don’t have any ideas, there’s a good physiotherapist near you.
Brad: Fuck that, I’ll just search on Google.
Rob: Ah yes, that super-reliable site. Remember when I felt tired, and you accused me of going on a morphine binge?
Brad: You can’t spell “accurately diagnosed” without “accused”.
Brad: Is Dirty Dancing E14? My gut says no, but my brain comes up with convincing arguments for it.
Rob: I wouldn’t say so, but go with whatever you think makes the most sense.
Brad: I’m really undecided, this is why I’ve asked for your opinion.
Rob: I think it’s possibly one of the least E14 movies I’ve seen.
Brad: Fair enough.
*Time passes*
Brad: Now that you’ve said that I’m trying to think of the least E14 movie I’ve ever seen, and I’m having a hard time shifting Dirty Dancing from that spot.
Rob: And that’s just from the films you’ve seen, which isn’t exactly a short list.
Brad: Fuck, even The Pianist had tanks in it…
*Time passes*
Brad: Born Free?
Rob: You’ve seen Born Free?
Brad: I dunno. Probably.

Brad: What team you playing as in Football Manager 2009, then?
Rob: I started unemployed, I'm now manager of Dorchester Town.
I felt like starting from the beginning and working my way up. I've always started from mid way and failed.
Brad: And in the game...? boom tish
Rob: Ahahahaha.
Brad: I played Yahoo's F1 manager game for a while. I got fed up when my lead driver seemed to be either sleeping or crashing the car. I ended up changing his name to Sleepy McCrashcrash.
Rob: Nice. I didn't realise Yahoo had an F1 manager game.
Brad: Did for a while, yeah.
Rob: I had the original Grand Prix Manager 2 on an emulator. I always managed to run out of money no matter what team I played.
Brad: But I didn't even buy a car! This is a donkey!"
Rob: "It cost you 4 million pounds?!"
"They said it would sing Carmen..."
"And has it?"
"....I thought I heard it sing a bit of the Habanera..."
Rob is listening to 'Training Montage' by Vince DiCola
Brad: Ah, I know this as the menu music from Rocky Legends on Xbox.
Rob: Makes sense, although it seems a little motivational for a menu selection...
Brad: Yeah. If you've loaded the game, you're probably already motivated enough to play it, right?
Rob: Yeah, I would think so.Though I suppose at least it's not music that de-motivates you from playing it after all. That would suck.
Brad: I call that JRPG Syndrome.
"Hey, Gary, what sort of music do you want for this? Plinky-plonky cutesy, or bombastic, over-the-top orchestral dramatic type stuff?"
" you think you could do both at the same time?"
"I can, but Brad'll probably kick me in the nuts again."
Not as annoying as the bad guys. The first bad guy I fought in Dragon Quest IX was Killer Cucumber. I just blot them out and pretend they’re Uruk-Hai or something.

Rob: Did your doctor's appointment go ok?
Brad: Yeah, think so - they've just put me on anti-inflammatories for a month, and see how it is after that, though.
Rob: Fair enough. Any idea how you did it?
Brad: Nope. The doctor I had didn't speak English too well, so they may have thought I had piles. The following conversation actually happened by the way.

BRAD: So, if it doesn't get better, how long should I leave it before coming back?
DOCTOR: Once in the morning, once at lunchtime, and once before bed.
BRAD: Hunh.

Rob: Fucking amazing.
Brad: Fuck, my work PC’s internet is shit today.
Rob: I’m having internet issues today, maybe it’s ill.
Brad: It gets sick from people’s cheery status updates on social networking sites, as I understand it.
Rob: Illness from cheer? The internet’s diabetic?
Brad: Didn’t you know?
Rob: No...Damn, now I feel bad.
Brad: Why?
Rob: I fed my router a Wagon Wheel.

Brad: I’m being fail recently. You’ve been fail much longer than I have. Any advice?
Rob: Suck it up, you pussy.


Bringing the enduringly popular superhero to the big screen for the first time, Green Lantern stars Ryan Reynolds (X-Men Origins: Wolverine) in the title role, under the direction of Martin Campbell (Casino Royale).

In a universe as vast as it is mysterious, a small but powerful force has existed for centuries. Protectors of peace and justice, they are called the Green Lantern Corps. A brotherhood of warriors sworn to keep intergalactic order, each Green Lantern wears a ring that grants him superpowers. But when a new enemy called Parallax threatens to destroy the balance of power in the Universe, their fate and the fate of Earth lie in the hands of their newest recruit, the first human ever selected: Hal Jordan.

Hal is a gifted and cocky test pilot, but the Green Lanterns have little respect for humans, who have never harnessed the infinite powers of the ring before. But Hal is clearly the missing piece to the puzzle, and along with his determination and willpower, he has one thing no member of the Corps has ever had: humanity. With the encouragement of fellow pilot and childhood sweetheart Carol Ferris (Blake Lively), if Hal can quickly master his new powers and find the courage to overcome his fears, he may prove to be not only the key to defeating Parallax…he will become the greatest Green Lantern of all.
