    Lali ho!

    Inspired by the Rioter's Prayer I posted in the shoutbox a few days ago, I decided to write the Gamer's Prayer. This is only a rough first draft I knocked out in the last 10 minutes, but it shows promise. What do you think so far?

    Our Father,
    Who Art Nintendo,
    Hallowed be thy games.
    Kingdom Hearts come
    Level Up be done
    On Earth as it is in Midgar
    Give us this day our daily codes
    And forgive us our GameSharking
    As we forgive those who spawn-camp against us.
    Lead us not into piracy
    But deliver us from Jack Thompson
    For yours is the Mana,

    The 1-Ups and the rare drops,

    Saved on a spare memory card,

    Starmen

    In Pad We Trust.

    Not bad for me pissing about for a few minutes with a daft idea. Improvement suggestions are welcomed.

    New Top Ten list is also in the works by the way. In between doing random stuff like this, writing my Gentleman's Handbook, continuing with my Star Fox Wii script, and actually living my life. So it might take a while. But it's on the way.

    Funny you should say that. First thing I thought up when I finished that draft was 'I am so TOTALLY putting that on a T-shirt'. I even posted words to that effect on Facebook.

    I'm just gonna leave this here...I made it with Paint so if anyone wants to spruce it up a touch, go ahead. Just remember that it was my idea when you try to sell it as a T-shirt 'cause I got the evidence.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    I'd TOTALLY buy more Nintendo Points Cards if they were like that, like a Nintendo bank note. Hell, there are Doctor Who bank notes out there, why not these?

    Isn't the internet about 80% cheese, though? Lolcats, for example. Like I said, this was just my way of killing a few minutes of my otherwise empty life with Heather notably absent until further notice [​IMG]

    Speaking of cheese, I need a sandwich. Be right back.

    Actually just had a word with a friend of mine who dabbles in such matters. She says she'll help me make a few T-shirts of it. Once I know how much they'll cost I'll see how many I can afford and maybe send some out if the finances don't fail me too hard.

    Totally off topic but I'm currently watching Robin Hood Prince of Thieves (primarily for the fantastic performance by Alan Rickman) and I looked it up on IMDB. Sean Connery got paid $250,000 for TWO DAYS WORK. He appears for a few moments at the end of the film as King Richard, and as such was only needed for two days of filming. Apparantly he then donated all of that money to charity. Must be fuckin' sweet to be Connery. Not only are you making a mint, but you're making SUCH a mint you can afford to give away more money than most people earn in ten years and not even blink an eye...Respect to him for helping charity.

    Hah. I'd like the "In pad we trust" with a NES controller, but without all the Mario background, on a T-shirt.

    Should also add a "(g)amen" at the end to finish it out.

    Handy, I happen to have that image kicking around on my hard drive from earlier. Figured it needed a bit more 'pep' hence the Mario background.

    And I added 'Starmen' because it sounds like 'Amen'. That and back when I was very young and my gaming skills had not yet developed, I swore by the Starman and his gift of 15 seconds of precious invincibility. Without that little flashing gift from the heavens I could NEVER get past Hammer Brothers. I was awful back then...

    The image is a bit stretchy and has some nasty compression artifact, in my opinion, but that's nothing that can't be helped.

    Awesome prayer is awesome.

    Well good news. We're pricing it up right now. If nothing else, I'm having one. If the job situation picks up soon, I'll use my ill-gotten gains to make a few more. I'll post details when I have them.

    Thinking of making a few alterations. Maybe change 'Kingdom Hearts come' to 'mushroom kingdom come', speaks to a wider audience. Flows a touch better.

    You know what would be even more awesome? If you can make a profit out of selling the shirts.

    You really deserve it.

    Maybe once I've made a few, I'll send some to places like Screwattack, sell them the design. They can go ahead and make a mint on the shirts provided I'm given a little for my efforts. Must be a tonne of websites that do gaming related t-shirts that'd like to add this to their repertoire.
