    LOL - great photoshop work.

    I might be interested if Feargy has a position for an Aussie Museum Curator currently living and working in Germany as an English Teacher who doesn't want to live in America.

    Otherwise I'm out of luck.

    heh. Maybe they're hiring people because they're finally going to develop something outside of the Bioware umbrella. That poster is scary though, maybe you should change the tag line to "I WANT YOU! TO MAKE ME RICE KRISPY TREATS!"

    And I thought all press was good press.

    I guess that adage doesn't work.

    I have a feeling I just lost my chance at being Obsidian's next PR guy.

    Nevermind, THIS GUY definitely needs to be your new PR guy. Even if there are no opennings for PR guy, fire the one you have and hire THIS GUY.

    Now that's a great title! Is it a high-budget porn movie or a subtle commentary on the world's political problems? Read the review to find out!

    It's actually a softcore porn movie with Shannon Tweed's boobies.

    That stuff is gold. A pity he uses the same terms a bit more than I'd like (rubber-meets-the-road / invocation of Mary Shelley) but great writing.

    The median home price in the OC is 565,000 and moving up. A little food for thought... If you don't mind about an hour commute to Irvine, you could buy a house like I just sold for 475,000.

    i'm thinking about switching coasts, so what about huntington beach or long beach? the local music scene there suits me much better than ny/nj

    Glad to see he has a sense of humour about the jab, though. Some people would post a thousand word response mentioning the lengthy development cycle of games, the tyranny of publshers, and then blacklist the site and employ russian spam bots to plague it. Actually, that might explain a bit...

    I can't imagine why anyone would want to live someplace that doesn't have ridiculously cold winters. Summer year round... ugh.

    Huntington Beach is very nice and very expensive. A two bedroom apartement near downtown HB will run you around 1800 a month. That is not that expensive compared to some of the ritzier parts of OC aka Newport Beach, Laguna Beach, Dana Point and Irvine. Long Beach will be less expensive but its not all that nice.

    To keep on topic, make sure feargus pays you alot, 5-10 years experience you should get around 80-100 at least, while starting out you probably be around 65!

    Well the coast is really mild, I would say its 72 degrees year around. As you move inland seasons become really obvious. Actually summers in some parts of SoCal can be very hot, San Fernando Valley, San Gabriel Valley and the Inland empire. Your looking at 105 degree days in August and September.

    Who said anything about them *sleeping* in the cages? The cages were 3 ft. x 3 ft. with electrified bars. As per my blueprints.
