Re: Post your TrekBBS "Blasts from the Past" here!

I'll leave it to doubleohfive to post the balance of his hilarious videos but here is one of them.



I also recommend his riff on the Sopranos.

Re: Post your TrekBBS "Blasts from the Past" here!

doubleoh makes the best BBS videos. His version of the Star Wars opening crawl remains one of the funniest things that anybody on the board's made and posted online.

Here's a few from my personal archives that I rescued from a battered old CD recently. This is from "What if TrekBBS Had Its Own BBS?"



The gag here was "What if TrekBBS Was An Actual Bulletin Board?"









Those were great.

You look good in green, Shatna!

He doesn't look good, he looks guilty.
He's up to something.

I know it.

"Briar Patch in Men's Room."

Guess that means TNZ is located behind the Shoney's and next to the dumpster.

Re: Post your TrekBBS "Blasts from the Past" here!

I made this up years ago, but I don't remember ever posting it outside the Briefing Room. If I had to take a guess, I'd say we were discussing adding the show-specific forums (Doctor Who, BSG, Stargate, Lost) at the time.

I miss TGT. Learned more from his posts than just about anybody. If he departed because of reaction to a poorly-worded or insensitive post, well, that's a damned shame.

'Cause lord knows I said my share of stupid stuff back in TNZ days.
I strongly disliked him at first for his complete disdain for anything other than the first 2 seasons of TOS but slowly got past that part. I eventually began to enjoy some of his posts (wasn't around for his comment that got him banned/made him leave).
I don't particularly miss TGT. The guy was a virulent anti-Semite. The comment about U.S. soldiers being like potato chips which cooleddie referenced paled in comparison to some of the things he frequently insinuated in TNZ. It tended to creep into some of his posts outside the Zone as well; his criticisms of TOS movies 2-6 at times seemed to have less to do with the change in style and tone from Roddenberry's TMP, and more to do with the Jewish heritage of producer Harve Bennett, writer/director Nicholas Meyer, and Shatner and Nimoy, who started to flex their muscle behind the camera during that period. I don't remember what he did specifically that got him kicked off for good, but I can guarantee it was pretty abhorrent.

That was a great little surprise when you logged on.

^I never saw that one. Brilliant!

Now that I'm in green I'm up to worse things than you can (or want to) know.

Re: Post your TrekBBS "Blasts from the Past" here!

I should post the thread from the Commies' Lounge a few years ago where I threw myself a month-long promotion party. After pirating the thread from MetalPants, I talked like a pirate and fired my cannon the whole time. Got some others to make like pirates too.

With one post remaining before promotion, I went silent and lurked for the next two weeks while others continued with the thread. Everyone figured I had departed, although I don't think anyone noticed that my rank was still the same. After fifteen days, I popped up again with a final "gotcha!" post.

awww, thank you
Actually, I'm cheating. My grammar is better than that of most posters here but my vocabulary is quite limited as I forgot so many words over the last decades. Since I am rather fluent and know ways to paraphrase what I mean, you don't notice how few words I actually use.


I love those screen shots! Looks like I missed quite some fun while I was gone.

Does anyone recall the duals back from 2001? It took Lisa 6 months to realize that Rethgill was (the banned) Lighter backwards.
And what a shame they banned Che's dual Lord of the Onion Rings. It was such a good name!

Be glad you haven't read some of the posts in the Zone in the past couple of days, then....
