Since I keep forgetting to work it into my edit summaries, I'll put it here: Sorry for using "IP" as an abbreviation for "intellectual property" in this edit summary. I thought about saying "Takashi Murakami franchise" or "property," but those choices sounded awkward. Eighty5cacao 18:12, 15 November 2010 (MST)
Mmm, what we say !!
- The music video for "Jigga Jigga!" uses footage of a Scooter concert in Japan, and the rest of it plays along with the Japanese theme. Does "Hide and Seek" similarly reference anything Japanese?
- I stand corrected to the extent that I am probably misrepresenting Scooter's intentions, but then again this is Wild Mass Guessing... Eighty5cacao 10:36, 20 December 2010 (MST)
The Time Machine (2002 film)
My web site has gone through several eras: Tripod era, Webjump era, Freeservers era (pineight.8m.com), EvilPigeon era (hosted by various companies that Josh Kearney worked for, after which I ended up on Go Daddy), and finally the current openpage2007 era. The branding changed from Wasted Collection to Cooper Black at the start of the EvilPigeon era. Incidentally, bits and pieces of the Freeservers era site are still up as of the last day of 2010, such as the mascot page.
The similarity of names is a coincidence. Colin appeared in TOD for PC (released in the fourth quarter of 2000), his face was behind the logo of the Freeservers era site, and his name was set around the time of Who's Cuter. --Tepples 15:10, 31 December 2010 (MST)
- Ok, I have reverted the relevant part of my edit. I still don't see how this totally excludes the possibility of cryptomnesia (though the film writers are unlikely to have been familiar with your website). The pre-Freeservers versions don't show up in a Wayback Machine query for www.pineight.com; with what domain name should I have made my query?
- Should I have raised this issue on some other talk page first, perhaps your user talk? Eighty5cacao 17:08, 2 January 2011 (MST) (last edit 17:29, 2 January 2011 (MST))
- The domain pineight.com began with the Freeservers era. People have already dug up archived versions of the Freeservers version of the NES page and used them to call me a ROM pirate. There's even more old shame in pre-Freeservers versions, such as a version of the mascot page that got me a cease-and-desist from a representative of the owner of copyright in some cartoon characters. --Tepples 21:18, 2 January 2011 (MST)
It's that "Luka" chick
- Ok, I will read over that. Could you remind me what WOG means? I admit I may have been misusing the term Wild Mass Guessing a bit, as I was starting to construct a fictional universe around the album rather than merely speculating on the motives behind its development. I had already read elsewhere about the stories beind "Luka" and "Tom's Diner," and I am aware that there is no real-world connection between the contents of the two songs.
- BTW, I have some notes on another "'Luka' chick" here and here (not quite related, and it would belong better in Fictional characters that look alike). Eighty5cacao 19:10, 5 January 2011 (MST)
