LA Times interviews Tim Schafer and Jack Black

LA TimesA bit of a gem managed to slip beneath the radar during the publisher news excitement the other day: an interview with both Tim Schafer and Jack Black, conducted by the venerable LA Times. Here’s a choice quote from Jack:

“I was a big fan of Tim’s Psychonauts game. That’s the amazing thing about this. Tim is the only person I would have done a video game with. And he’s the only one who’s ever asked me. It was… destiny.”

Also covered is how the two met, how Brutal Legend was conceived, and various talk about what the game is all about. So like any Schafer interview, well worth reading.

This is a typical KIL ND (Keep It Local ND) vartebem letter. Who exactly does the legislature or your city, county or township work for exactly? The citizens or special interests? Now of course, most county and townships and smaller towns are a bunch of hard-working great folks, however, shouldn’t the job of the officials at all levels get together and get behind this inititiative instead of having a group like KIL ND constantly, blatently lie over and over about what Measure 2 does and does not do? Every single argument is a Straw Man. The citizens are getting smoked on property tax and the results are always the same locally, we don’t have control, you need to talk to your legislator. Your legislator replies, property tax is a local issue. I mean come on. Enough with the dog an pony baloney. Property taxes can be eliminated and the state will survive. There are two county commissioners that are sponsers of the measure who seem to understand the truth about local control. There is also a state legislator who actually gets it as well. It’s very well written and KIL ND knows this full well and they are misleading their consitutents so they can continue the crony capitalism ND is famous for. Seriously, Jack Zaleski is calling Measure 2 supporters anti-government extremists when Andy Peterson and Crew are running around stating Measure 2 will toss Grandma out, stop Veterans benefits, end Fire Departments, the State Patrol etc. And Measure 2 supporters are extremist? There is currently a $1000.00 and $100.00 reward out for anyone who can find any of this complete garbage in Measure 2 that the Measure states any of these will go away if Measure 2 passes. It would most certainly help the Forum Editorial board if they actually read the measure and then uderstood how it’s applied within the ND State Constitution, followed by the already existing legal definitions of legal obligations found within Aritcle 7 Section 8 and then into further legal obligations definitions within ND Century Code. You see, all of this is existing definitions and KIL ND knows this. Fully and Properly is also very well known within current government circles as thats currently used in every exisiting funding funding formulas including K-12, existing property tax levying, road maintenance, Vector Control and on and on. But the Forum nor KIL ND cares about the citizens and their tax burden it’s too important to keep the government above the needs and desires of the citizens to be safe and secure in their homes as providing for the govrenment is just to important eventhough without citizens there’d be no government at any level. This article is nothing short of par-for-the-course disinformation.

Hi Kevin!The temp table is almost always quicker since you can do a inner join and perform one query vs calling the function for each record in the table.ThanksJuan

She does sooo, so, so much to publicly embarrass herself, it amazes me that she thinks people are sending in Post Secrets to humiliate her.Me thinks she protests to much about “wanting everyone to know she doesn’t have a drug problem”.Katie, not everything is about you, regardless of what you think.
