YSaC, Vol. 1417: When you stare into Tales of the Abyss, it stares into you.

2013 January 1



I think this person is basically hoping that Sartre is sitting out there on a whole load of PS2 games. Life is meaningless. Ennui consumes all. There is no point to anything, and especially not to trying to sell these old copies of “XIII” and “Backyard Wrestling.” They were something once*, but now they are not much. Perhaps I can find someone to take them off my hands, so I can return to staring at the abyss, and stop being despondent about why “Okami” didn’t do better commercially.

*note: “Backyard Wrestling” was never actually something.

Thanks for the post, OMV!

    High-end watches and recent Macintoshes I’ll take them off your hands no charge do you realize what a pain it is to sell them and let’s not even talk about eBay and PayPal fees heck if you have a late-model car I’ll even drive it off for you no extra charge I’m such a giving person that way.

      ½- 14 carat diamonds, will take them off your hands. They aren’t much anymore since the new 24 carat diamonds came out. Also looking for 12 karat gold. It’s not much any more either. You know, because, 18 karat gold.

      BEAT THE RUSH! Get rid of your 18 karat gold now! Make room for the new 24 karat gold.

    …it was like a million hipsters cried out at once and were suddenly silenced.

      Leaving only the sound of the wind through empty PBR cans.

      Oh wait — that’s how I woke up this morning. *Sigh.* Better get a trash bag, pull on my moth-eaten Orlon sweater and stare meaningfully at this mess.

        I find it helps to squint.

    And then there are all these paintings by this Van Gogh guy… Those paintings are, like, really old, and they don’t have lolcats or anything. Besides, the dude went insane, and you don’t want that to rub off on you…

    I don’t have any PS2 games, but I do have some old lawn darts Sparky can have. They aren’t much any more because, y’know, Ninjas.

    I guess I didn’t realize that there were so many Sartre and Nietzche inspired PS2 games, tits aside.

    Sparky! Sparky, NOOOooooooo! Don’t you realize that if the PS2 games are less now than they were, they will continue to decrease in … uh… thingness (dammit, Jim, I’m a lawyer, not a physicist!) until they are nothing? And then LESS than nothing? Soon they will coalesce into a cosmic singularity and begin sucking all into them, bending time and space, and all that other annoying crap black holes do. You really want THAT in your basement apartment?

      Tankerbell – too early into the New Year to be annoyed with Sparky. You’ve another *employs CatMath* 7.9658 trizillion days left for more Sparkitude … “calm down, dear” as our Prime Minister said to a female MP last year…..

    So he thinks he’s being generous by offering to take your old videogames for free rather than charging you? Uh…

    Gonna be honest here: I squeed a little at the correctly executed PS2 game references.
