Rules of the Asylum
Rule 1. There are no real point to these
Before you yell troll, realize that I'm actually writing something that can be discussed, thus its not spam. BUT if you are to ask me why you should read this, I have no answer.

Rule 2. Nothing I say or do has any direct or indirect relation to this or any other magic league

Rule 3. These are my opinions, not yours.
Feel free to tell me yours.

now on to my rant...

So I used to do another type of forum article that was arguably even more popular then the Asylum Rant. I called this the Random Report. The first one of these bad boys interviewed the famous Lordhawk and proceeded to start a war with him and the entire channel of #stfu. Ah good times...
So around Monday I thought this would be a perfect idea for a new rant, well irl has a way of getting in your way cause I had drill till Thursday and then my niece who is about 2 weeks old wound up in the hospital for breathing problems. But fear not, for I am Craze and managed to finish my interview.

But Craze, does this mean you'll be doing more interviews??

Maybe, maybe not. Depends on time obviously.
Anyway without further delay, I give you...

The Random Report, Asylum Style: Weedmonkey

Craze:
So tell me your name.

Weed:
andrew starr

Craze:
zomg that sounds like a porn star name

Weed:
XD my porn star name's demi leicester, if you cared

Craze:
isn't your porn star name your dog's name and your mother's maiden name?

Weed:
Yup

Craze:
Ah, then mine's Elvis Brown.

Weed
retro...nice XD

Craze:
ok so how long you been here at ML?

Weed
i've been here since the beginning of 2001. back in the days where the channel had a dozen or so people on it and koen was here every day.

Craze
lol Geez ya know someone actually asked me who Koen was. Apperently he had never heard the name.

Weed
lol, well koen ain't exactly here anymore. so that's understandable.

Craze
ok so your the owner of probably one of the most current popular channels on irc, #weedmonkey4u which I guess really is a fan channel to yourself

Weed
more or less, yeah

Craze
so tell me who you consider your biggest fans(besides me obv)

Weedmonkey laughs

Weed
from the present day, i'd have to say Asgarov, str8 and Kuberr, from the past, i'd say stalker and possibly akroadrunner. Everything pre-ZiRC days tho are pretty hazy Razz i don't have problems with anyone until they do something wrong by me

Craze
any particular irc guys who have wronged you?

Weed
well, slug9t9 was always an asshat and he's been around for a while

Craze
<3 that your wrong list is limited to 1 person that even I've never heard of

Weed
lol i tend to get along with everyone, even gfo. Although i don't approve of some of the things he does like not doing activity checks. Yes, the judges ARE doing this for free but if you're doing activity checks, keep doing them. Don't fucking stop them just because you don't want to see Clariax dejudged.

Craze
heh bet everyone wants to see him dejudged

Weed
Everyone DOES want to see him dejudged. honestly, if he's not going to run the 4 minis per month everyone else is expected to hold to, dejudge him. And to paraphrase somebody who i can't remember offhand, "He's never around when you need him, and he's always around when you don't need him"
Weedmonkey laughs
ShadowS and Avatar_of_Kokusho both got dejudged last year for not running the required 4 minis even though they made A LOT of rulings and Clariax is STILL a judge even though he hasn't run a single mini to date!

Craze
ShadowS was dejudged!? That is really gay, I liked ShadowS...
The staff of ML really has never been all that great, We've had judges like pG and RThomas who abuse their power over and over, and then Lordhawk certainly caused problems.

Weed
Yeah, ShadowS was dejudged around the same time AoK was, it was part of the reason he left M-L. ShadowS used to be the only judge running Other minis and when he was dejudged, there weren't any more other minis. So he eventually left.
LordHawk i have never had a problem with. But pG and RThomas were both douchebags. As was GRAH, to this day, i still have no fucking idea whatsoever as to how GRAH managed to reach j2.

Craze
They reward idiocy, didn't you know? pG banned me for 2 weeks straight for things I said outside the league, and what did anyone do? they promoted from halfops to ops.

Weedmonkey laughs

Weed
you've never been that popular tho Razz

Craze
Ya know something completely off topic just hit me, where the hell do you work? your always Weedmonkey|Work. I have no clue where you go...

Weed
I currently teach grade six kids at a catholic school. I finish up friday though, not that much difference between being in a classroom full of kids and being in #magic-league though.

Craze
omg and take no offense to this, but they let a homsexual man teach at a catholic school!? I didn't think religious institutions had evolved that much. Christians are generally awful on being even remotely openminded.

Weedmonkey laughs

Weed
well, they don't know i'm gay. But yes, in general catholics are rather good at discriminating. Take world youth day earlier in the year, cardinal george pell invited homosexual youth along to world youth day to see what the catholic church offered. All i saw the catholic church offering was discrimination and a promise that all gays would burn in hell -_-

Craze
Follow america politics much?

Weed
i have to put up with the bullshit on tv even though i don't live there, so yes -_-

Craze
yeah I was watching the big debate between McCain and Obama, I got to say my overall confidence in my country tends to go down every 4 years.

Weed
I have some confidence in obama. I'm gonna buy me a bomb shelter if mccain gets in though...

Craze laughs

Weed
People aren't confident in obama having enough experience. Although apparently McCain being a POW accounts for something. Maybe if McCain becomes president and WW3 starts McCain will get kidnapped!

Craze
So your news is covered in American politics?

Weed
i wouldn't say covered, but there's usually half a dozen pages in the paper or so and then there's a few things on it every week on the news. China's more bloody relevant to australia than the US is, yet we don't hear jack shit about china. Unless it's the bloody olympics...

Craze
I think thats what China prefers

Weed
It is. If america's so desperate to get coverage globally, maybe texas should try striving for independence and the rest of america oppress THEM. But yeah, china don't like other people in china's business. Cue all the crap about freeing tibet. China's like a morbidly obese fourteen year old kid who thinks freeing tibet would be a moment of weakness and everyone will start thinking china's weak and invade.

Craze
ya know I'm pretty sure China could take most of us

Weed
Depends where russia sits on the situation. From memory russia has more nuclear weapons stockpiled than any other country in the world. So if china attacked and russia supported them, we're all basically fucked.Though we can't do anything about it, so why worry?

Craze
I suppose you got a point, on to something more relevent, you a active mtg player?

Weed
Can't really say i'm active. But yes, i do keep up to date with the tournament scene and the like. Just don't do much playing anymore.

Craze
I can't say I do either which is more to do with the suckiness of my computer, but ya know of course this doesn't stop the eight thousand randoms from pming me. Thats soo fucking annoying...

Weed
i don't generally have much problem with people PMing me

Craze
see and thats it, no one else does. Its like they all aim at me...

Weed
they tend to learn not to bug me after the first time Wink but yeah, people DO have it in for you.

Craze
I get about 30 randoms pming every few days or so, like last week I'd go to drill for 8 or so hours come back and I have like 10 random pms...

[20:27] kratos No such nick


Weed
XD n00bs in general are fucking annoying. Especially the ones who always ask for fucking patches or the ones who ask how to play online. I mean if they had the brains to get to #magic-league by java client they should have the brains to click on the How to Start button on the home page but they go right fucking past it...

Craze
And its not like we don't have like 80 fucking guides on everything from mIRC to installing patches. But no one bothers to read those...

Weed
ofc not and yet it's the same fucking people. Honestly, the bitching about the shards of alara patch has already started, one of the reasons i'll never be a j2 is because i would kick people for stupidity and there are a LOT of stupid people...

Craze
I love the level of people who think they know everything and then disconnect after you start to win and they always do something totally retarded to like hand you a noob token.

Weed
the best ones are the ones who tell you they have the rulebook sitting right next to them and then you ask them to quote the rule which says they can do whatever they did.

Craze
And then theres the ones who make some retarded mistake and then try to cover it by giving you deck criticism...

Weed
I really, really despise those who have the balls to give deck criticism. ESPECIALLY after they lose 0-2.

Craze
Why does everyone think they are qualified to help others on decks? Ya know how many "deck help" channels there has been?

Weed
the deck help channels are all bullshit to begin with magic4you.nu had its deck doctors, who on the whole were fairly competent since all the decks they were given weren't all that serious or good. Still, i don't see the point of them, there's probably half a dozen active m-lers if that that i'd trust to help with my decks.

Craze
I once did a deck help thing on the forums, and the sole goal of it was honestly to worsen decks so I'd win more xD

Weed
XD nice
But honestly, the bad players don't need any real help losing. Apart from myself and gfo, i don't think there are any good m-lers that are sub 1600.

Craze
and the people who honestly listen to all this deck help shit are generally the bad players...

Weed
Agreed on the bad players listening to the deck help shit. Mind you, bad players aren't inherently a problem, it's when they start boasting that they're good without the evidence to back it up that it becomes a problem.

Craze
And that right there becomes several problems actually, because:
A) your going to get some poor noob who actually listens to them
B) your going to have to deal with some random who with his bad attitude and arrogence slowly ruins your player pool.

Weed
it's the bad attitude bad players that really give me the shits and there have been plenty in m-l's time, slug9t9 and plusua are two of the worst offenders. Well, not worst offenders EVER, but those two have really given me the shits in recent times...

Craze
I'm sure everyone we know on here can add at least 2 names to that list

Weed
at least, yeah. Those were the first two to pop into my head tho...

Craze
Ah well I'm about to have to cover t8 in this master, so I think were about done with this rant. Any last comments?

Weed
Yeah, I don't get enough respect in this league Razz and i'm wondering how many people will talk shit about me commenting on this...

Craze
xD well thats half the fun of it

Until next time,
I'm Craze and I'm off to restock on eggs...

But I'd like to comment on the "How to Start"-section which is actually not good at all. I read it and still had to ask around in the chat room regarding how m-l works.

Now that I've figured that out all's well.
