I've finally finished The Stepmanford Ukes. I completed my goal of finishing it before Easter but I had wanted it done a couple of weeks ago. However, I'd prefer to talk about the funniest, cleverest version of the Lord's Prayer I've ever found. Its retardedness also proves that you just can't modernise everything.
The one on the right I found in a forum post by someone called Galgalid at animea.net, which I used to watch Bubblegum Crisis: Tokyo 2040. The site advertises interesting forum discussion threads and I found that post among a semi-religious discussion. For those who don't understand at least one (or perhaps all) of the obscure references, I'll explain them to you.
First of all, a small amount of it is written in L337. If all of it was written in L337 (which it isn't), it would be incomprehensible. (Type in Leet in wikipedia, I did just now and it turns out to have had an existence since the 1980s.) So that explains the strange spelling. Now I'm surprised that the first line reads "who 0wnz heaven" since 'ownz' or 'ownzed' has not been said for quite a while. These days kids say 'pwn' or 'pwned' when they rule at something. The third line is a reference to a meme-yet another word in the netspeak dictionary-otherwise known as a video so popular people kept linking it, tributing it and parodying it so that it's become a pop culture icon all on its own. The video in question is an introduction to a video game that was released for the Sega Megadrive back in 1991. What makes it so...*cough* special is that the game developers, Toaplan, did not bother hiring a professional translator so the English is...superbly substandard. The famous quote that the 3rd line references is: "All your base are belong to us", which is also the name given to the cult of that dodgy video.
"warez" refers to any software. "mp3z"=mp3s. "pr0n" is porn. Unless I'm wrong but I'm quite certain I'm not. The "phat pipe" would be the internet connection. "n00b lamerz" is actually a term I've never come across, but a n00b or noob is basically a newbie to someplace, usually an online forum or game, who knows nothing and refuses to learn, often represented as having a massive ego. The netspeak equivalent of "lead us not into temptation" is basically asking that whoever's praying isn't hopping mad if he successfully hacks a server. I think that's everything explained.
I also feel like talking about the weather again. Mum sent me an email showing her concern at the news we might experience a storm today. Well it's...still raining, it was a surprise when the rain stopped this afternoon. The wind has definitely picked up, it was calm this morning. Also it seems there might have been a flood warning or two issued. This morning, the roads that led directly to the seafront were closed off, so that drastically changed the route of my bus (501). It still came to the stop among these halls, but instead of driving along the pier road it turned left towards the council hall and rejoined the High Street halfway along its usual length along there. Skipped several stops it did. I was also surprised by a strangely pitched siren going off this morning and found the source to be a coastguard patrol car. I think it's still out and about since I've been hearing the siren go off a couple of times tonight. God the sea must be violent, I can hear it clearly inside my room-that's rare.
