Which branch(es) are you joining us in? (Aion, Champs, DDO, GA, STO): Mainly interested in GA, though if the Klingon STO side continues to be content-free and all about Bird of Prey attack swarms, I will want to find a crew to roll with in the Neutral Zone as well. Remember: "4000 throats may be cut in one night by a running man" (I'm lame enough to quote a Klingon proverb, but not lame enough to quote it in Klingon. I'm highly curious what ya'll choose to do with THAT!)

Are you over 18? (you must be 18+ to apply) A sprightly 34.

Are you a member of any other guild in that game? Nope. I was once a member of the WoW guild Red Gauntlet but have otherwise tried to avoid groups which keep lists of members.

What is the name/class/current level of the character(s) you intend to join with? GA -- Eledarr lvl 11 Medic (though I will likely roll one of each, since GA keeps them all under same user name). STO -- Eledarr Lieutenant 6 Federation Tactical, and Eldar (I think, will need to double check), Lieutenant 7 IKG. (Yes, I'm a creature of habit and use the same name everywhere when possible.) FYI, I'm filling this out at work, and may be confused on my @ name. I'll double-check it when I get home and reply to this thread.

Do you have friends or family in the guild? If so what is their forum name? I have friends and family, but I'm not aware of any in TheU.

Did you read our charter and rules? Which rules translation was your favorite? I did read all of them. My favorite was the french, because it allowed me to pretend that I still know french.

Do you have an issue using Ventrilo? (Being able to at least listen is helpful for active participation in PvP/raids) I don't have an issue using Ventrilo, I do currently have issues with my microphone. I like to imagine that I'm the real life incarnation of the fictional solid snake when I'm not admitting I'm too lazy and cheap to go to best buy and acquire a new microphone without prompting. Also, it wierds my girlfriend out sometimes when she hears me talking to my computer alone in my office. Both of those issues can be worked through in time.

Answer the following 4 questions. PROTIP: if your answer is shorter than the question, we will make fun of you for being boring.
1. What's the dumbest, funniest or most embarrassing thing you have ever done: So many choices, so little time until my web client session times out and I have to type all this stuff over again... I'll go with the dumbest/embarassing combo: Once, while on a 4-day New Year's eve cruise with my extended family (a sort of reuniony type event), I slammed a bottle of champagne on a dare to ring in the new year, then was surprisingly successful in making chit chat with a fine young lady in the lido deck bar later that evening. I was suave and dashing, she was attractive and in a low-cut evening dress, then I promptly ruined everything by knocking an entire pint of Jack'n'coke all over the front of her dress and ripping her bodice open while drunkenly trying to help her "clean it up". This happened 10-30 seconds after she gigglingly replied "Sure, Why not?" to my drunken request to pursue hooking up later in the evening. Bonus: I then passed out in the hallway outside my room because my sister got slammed and locked the door to the room she, my brother and I were sharing so she could conduct a four hour conversation with her landlubber boyfriend. Bonus bonus: I awoke in the ship's medical clinic because cruise staff found me, couldn't figure out where I should be, and decided that was the best place for me to sleep it off. Bonus bonus bonus: My credit card was used to cover room incidentals and when I debarked at the end of the cruise I was delighted to find an $800 charge for a phone call to Tucker, GA.

2. What is your Zombie Plan? A long, long time ago, some high school friends I no longer talk to and I agreed that when the end of the world comes, we would all meet at Carl's dad's place, gather his extensive firearms collection, and then drive to Mexico in Jason's El Dorado. As I no longer keep in touch with any of those folks and don't know where his father lives, I've taken this clever plan and modified it for my current situation. To whit: Hotwiring/carjacking the first El Dorado I see, then using it to drive over any zombie police officers I can find, then stealing their firearms. There's a police station down the street from my current apartment, so if I get really lucky and they don't barricade themselves inside I can also bust in there and grab some more ordnance. After explaining the proper operation of a 9mm handgun to the girlfriend, we shall head at high speed to the nearest mexico-like no-man's land: Gary Indiana. It's perfect, thanks to the toxic environment, high gallon-per-capita quantities of flammable liquid, and endless waterfront factories (Zombie's can't swim, ya'll). We'll hole up until it all blows over, making occasional forays to the underground food storage caverns of the nearby gambling boats and supermarkets. At some point we shall acquire a speedboat, which we will keep parked in the barge load/unload dock of our repurposed factory. When it all blows over we use the speedboat to race at high triumphant speeds back to Chi-town. When it all goes to crap and there is an undead horde about to capture us, we use the endless 50-gallon drums of flammable liquid to set Lake Michigan on fire and go out in a blaze of suicidal glory.

3. Tell us the story of why you will no longer drink <name of drink>: As you may suspect from my dumb/embarrassing story, there isn't really a drink I will no longer drink. I generally avoid scotch, because any situation in which I find myself drunk enough to choke down the ass-tastic scotch flavor is a situation in which there are many more palatable solutions to my sobriety problem.

4. Tell us something cool about yourself that has nothing to do with gaming: Well, In my unpaid spare time I'm an actor. Pretty good, if you ask me or someone related to me. I just found out that the production of Red Noses I was in last spring has been added to the list of remounts at Chicago's Theater on the Lake this summer, after which we're doing an entire monthlong remount at Strawdog Theatre, where the show initially went up. If that isn't cool enough for you, I just managed to combine my two hobbies (Theatre and Gaming) at once by plugging a theatrical production in an application to a gaming guild. Booyah!

Quick survey! We will totally judge you by the answers you make below:
• Favorite Type of Music: Hip Hop in general, Classic Rock when stoned, catchy pop music when I think nobody will ever find out. Whoops.
• Favorite Movie: WHY MUST I PICK JUST ONE?!?! Fine. Pootie-Tang. Judge me.
• Favorite Book: The Dark Tower
• Favorite Drink: With Dinner: Stoli Gibson up. Without Dinner: Jack Daniels 'n Coke (diet).
• Favorite Non MMO Game: I'm so strung out on the Mass Effect 2 crack right now I can hardly stand it.

Tentatively dual. STO was getting really dull on the federation side, but the Klingon slot has given it new life for me. I'll hit ya'll up online next time I'm on.

Just judging from your app, I forsee you being a fine addition to the ranks of the U. One of the best apps I've seen in a while. Very good & detailed dumbest/funniest/most embarrassing story, a well thought-out & entertaining Zombie Plan. On top of that, I had to Google Pootie Tang, thinking it was the title of a porn flick. I was wrong. I have just one question. What did you mean by "groups which keep lists of members?" Did the guild you were in keep some sort of favoritism list, or some such?

I want to say 'yes' right now, but I like to get to know people in-game and/or on Vent, as well before casting my vote. Hook up with us on our chat channel (/join_channel Unrepentant) and let us chat you up some. If you want to hop on our Vent, just ask for the info there, as well.

Why thank you very much. I enjoy writing and was trying to bring it a bit, glad that worked out.

On the "lists of members thing": nothing like that, RG was a wonderful group of folks. I was going for a humourous and obscure reference to that old saying about never being in any club that will have you combined with a little "leave no trace" paranoia. I didn't intend to imply that I'd once been burned by my high school cheerleading clique or anything. Though I was. To this day I cry whenever I see pom-poms. Girls can be so cruel!

Remembered the actual quote I was badly referencing. Groucho Marx: "I would not join any organization that would have me as a member... their standards are too low."

BTW, since I didn't indicate that "if it was wrong" I would update with my @ name, I'm confirming that on both GA and STO my characters are @daywalker13.

Cheers.

There are many reasons, but the best ones I can enumerate would be:

1. I can only understand what Pootie-Tang is saying when I'm not sober.
2. It's the first movie that comes to mind when I think of movies that were both a) as good or better than the trailer and b) actually delivered on everything the trailer promised.
3. I have a friend I don't get to see much anymore (he and his wife moved to Minnesota) who saw the trailer with me, thought it looked awesome, and yet was never able to see it. To this day, when I do see him and say, "Seen Pootie-Tang yet?", he always sadly replies in the negative. For some reason, I get a little schadenfreude-y whenever I see it because of this -- I think "Heh, Chris doesn't know what he's missing."
4. It's the ultimate proof that the "wheel of movie goodness" (movies can be so bad they are good again) holds true.
5. The belt as a martial-arts weapon. Awesome. I mean, come on, for anyone whose father or grandfather ever uttered the phrase "don't make me take my belt off" that just resonates.
6. The following exchange:
Pootie Tang: Cole me on the panny sty.
Bob Costas: ...I'm sorry. What was that?
Pootie Tang: Cole - Cole me on the panny sty.
Bob Costas: What the hell are you talking about?
Pootie Tang: ...Cole me down on the panny sty?
Bob Costas: Oh, cole me down on the panny sty! All right!

Fin.

I've got one question.... Why would you ever let a member of your family be romantically involved with anyone from Tucker???? Did you not like her very much or something?

Dude, you explain to me how to prevent your sister from liking a dude you don't like and I'll come up with a way to restrict her from talking to said dude from Tucker. You go first. :)

Eh, "befriend said dude, and take cell phone camera pictures of him at the strip club, post them on your myspace, and make sure to tag him in all the photos" then "accidentally" let your sister see them.

she'll get pissed, and stop talking to the dude


or hook him up with a total slut, and let her find out.

Call him from weird numbers, always making sure you use another womans phone, so when she calls them back, a chick answers.

Fill his phone with other girls names..

Wow. It simply hadn't occurred to me to rise to that level of sneaky vindictive backstabbing. I salute you, sir, and concede the point. The dude from tucker is long gone, but if my sister ever gets back together with the deputy who accidentally beats up retards, I shall take your advice.
