My dishwasher.  It's chanting again.  I expect human noticeable  earthquakes within the month.

That's not normal behavior for a major appliance...

Occasionally you will see a Colonel Appliance behaving eccentrically.  But anything truly bizarre from appliances is usually not tolerated until they reach flag officer status.

Watch out for any appliances from Admiral or General Electric.

Worst refrigerator I ever had was from Norge. I swear it was Helheim-bent on some sort of Viking revenge against us.

Oh, that's normal. Norwegians have a deep seated distrust and suspicion of anything not from Norway. Naturally, any products they sell resent being removed from Norway and tend to take this out on the purchasers.

Well, our replacement for it is a Kenmore Elite, purchased from a Sears Outlet (read: scratch & dent) store. I don't think it took too kindly to being scratch & dented, because it's been making the weirdest copper-tinged gurgling sounds ever since we got it ... I swear it might be doing some long distance communicating with mlooney's dishwasher on a higher frequency. It's an unholy conspiracy, I tell you.

Evanescence and AC/DC, with spaceships

The spaceship part here is Goon (aka the bad guys) fleet of battleships getting destroyed by an allied (aka the not as bad guys) fleet, from the point of view of the allies.  Even on my not very good video laptop, Eve does look great.

Is it making noise right now (6:20 CST)?  Because the dishwasher is chanting again.

Maybe it isn't actually as sinister as we think. They might just be playing EVE Online together.

No, but there must be some delay for message propagation, decoding, and reply encoding/transmission.

It's a good thing that Tengu fleet was with the good guys, Nanase and Ellen wouldn't have had a chance against those even with Guardians. See what I did there? ;)

These are real Tengu, not "Not-Tengu".  Well, not really real Tengu, those are Asian monsters, but these aren't cult making magic using Not-Tengu

The dishwasher has been chanting far longer than I've been playing Eve.  Plus I have my WiFi MAC-port blocked, so yeah, I'm still going with the whole elder gods thing.

Eve's been around 15 years, the dishwasher could have started playing long before you, the chanting is it's way of lamenting the memory of B.O.B ;)

Why would a dishwasher lament a battery-operated boyfriend?

Band of Brothers, but from what I've read about them, your term may also be applied.

It was one of the biggest alliances in Eve for several years, then a couple months before I started playing (2009) one of it's top directors defected to Goonswarm, but not before disbanding the alliance and main corp. They were very expansionist oriented and they were essentially trying to conquer all of Eve but they spread themselves too thin and made too many enemies.

A year later, Goonswarm's CEO "forgot" to pay sovereignty upkeep, disbanded the alliance, and then moved the GoonFleet corp into the Band of Brothers alliance that Goons snagged to prevent anyone from reforming that alliance when it was collapsed the previous year.

I'm going through my video game music list and trying to demote things from the second tier, which is a bit fat; and also categorize them a bit by putting them into secondary themed playlists, and also break up runs of songs from the same game, and otherwise pair things up in a sensible fashion.

I hope you haven't put my stuff on your second tier or lower. ^_^

Yeah, I didn't see my stuff on that list. I wrote music for the following games:

  • Rise of the Triad
  • Duke Nukem 3D (Original, Atomic Edition, and 20th Anniversary World Tour)
  • Stargunner
  • Shadow Warrior (the 1997 original)

You might have run across them somewhere, I hope.  ^_^
