Re: The Siskels and Eberts of FSO?
Well, I'm grumpy enough and snobby enough to be a critic. :doubt:
yes, but would you be an entertaining critic?

I'm allways entertaining. Don't you know assho- .. I mean, "The Comedian" is my middle name!

You're a wrongularity from which no right can escape!

 
Re: The Siskels and Eberts of FSO?
Yes, but I don't trust either of you to be terribly erudite about the storytelling or FREDding. :P

Karaj maybe, but we'd never talk him into it. There aren't terribly many people in the community who do both.
Considering my reading age has been double or triple my chronological age for the majority of my life, I'm probably more well-read than yourself :P

I know we're not the only ones, and we were not the first,
and unapologetically we'll stand behind each word."

And yet you still don't come across as able to do the job. :P

Besides, you're not, since I'm pretty sure that's identical or less than mine. :P

I'm fairly sure "reading age" stops meaning anything beyond the age of 9 or 10. Actually, bragging about your "reading age" is one of the most ridiculous things I've ever read on here. I mean, you reckon your "reading age" was quadruple your actual age for your entire life? So you're reading geriatric books now? Just get through "Preparing for Death" or something? Or even when you were a kid - when you were ten were you reading "How to win friends and Influence people" or books about coping with a mid life crisis?

Seriously, get a better brag.

[EDIT]On the original topic,  never saw Siskel and Ebert, but I did see the Nostalgia Critic video - I dunno if the format'd work as well for campaigns as it does for movies, but I do agree that you'd need at least one FREDder in the pair, and someone funny. No suggestions though.

Darius and Ransom. They have very different styles and they're both polite and thoughtful.

Re: The Siskels and Eberts of FSO?
Mm, I guess I'd have to half agree here. Egotistical types tend to do better in these kind of roles, or well, they make for more interesting viewing. Actually, if you could get Darius and Ransom in the same room it could be interesting, but you'd have to toss someone 'ragey' or Blackdove-ish in there as well, just to give spice things up.

No intention of nitpicking, but I can't say that Siskel/Ebert/Roeper were egoistic. They only need a different approach if you ask me,

Nah. He's too busy having a life in China. :blah:

If you need one FREDder, how about Axem? :nervous:

Five minutes, with the topic being the original FS1 for starters. FREDding should be nitpicked to shreds ;)
