I've been collecting 'Sig' lines and various EPIC statements

Post by Ratty » Wed May 14, 2014 4:22 pm

Some day I'll make a giant poster for the M&G or I'll put them all on small signs in the JOTS. Right now I'm just collecting by-lines and famous quotes from anyone on Eplaya. The most likely use would be for nametags at the Wednesday night get together. If you have anything to add, send it. I don't really care if you make it up or the person actually posted it. (How could that possibly matter). So $ue me. I'll quote some socking asshat as saying something that he wasn't bright enough to think of. Sorry about the improper sentence structure. You post it attributed to ______. I'll save it and I'll use it. It's all in good fun, right?

I started saving these last year when I was planning a panel outside Center Camp. My idea was to promote Eplaya through an art piece on the back-side of the cafe. It was daunting. They wanted an 8' by 8' area filled with my talent. I think my painting talent could fill a 2 square inch pallet. I folded like a cheap card table.

That's terrific Ratty! Feel free to lift my sig-line. I have been doing this shit for 13 years and still feel the burn.
Maybe there's an ointment for this.

Thanks guys. It's not just sig lines. It's quotes too.

Canoe...I've been so stiff there I'd have been happy to have been knocked down in the heat and run over by a heard of fat bikes.

Capt. Goddammit...Burning Man isn't cheap. It's also not a necessity.

Jackass...Well I'm all tapped out on "help", back to being cynical, critical, shit talking and being generally disruptive for the balance of the day.

Dragonpilot...I don't give a fuck that you don't give a shit that I don't give a fuck.

Dwayne Gerken...Just be yourself. All the good personalities are taken.

I feel somewhat honored, as it's not everyday that I have something to say that is even remotely noteworthy. I'll keep my eyes out for the EPIC statements when I use the "blue room", this should be great!~

Like Ygmir, I can't think of anything I've said that's noteworthy either. A couple of my favorite sayings...

In my mind, this one is the ePlaya motto. I'm not sure who said it first, but I heard it from Bay Bridge Sue Lassen Forge and/or AntiM
Those who plan...burn

And this one from AntiM always makes me smile, and sums up ePlaya's wilderness years

SOME of the quotes I've collected. Don't dismay if your quote isn't here. If your quote is attributed to the wrong person, who cares. As long as it makes us laugh, think, anti-think. If you have a good one post it.

Bbadger..."I must've lost it when I was twerking at the trash fence."

McStrangle..."Snark away, ePlaya, you magnificent bastards."

Elorrum…Leave religious conversion to the pros.

Lucky420...Oh my god, it's HUGE!

Vulturechow...Send lawyers, guns and money - The shit has hit the fan.

Savannah...Just because I like to wash myself in public and gnaw on the bars of my cage all night doesn't mean I want to be stuffed up someone's bum.

Boyscoutgirl...It makes sense if you don't think about it.

Maryanimal...Sometimes I'm confused by what I think is really obvious. But what I think is really obvious obviously isn't obvious.

?????...Welcome to Eplaya. A sustainable, natural resource.

Tamarakay...You're so vain, you probably think this post is about you

AntiM...I'd like Drama for $40, Alex.

Crypto...Fuck, I'm such an asshole sometimes...

ygmir...Everyone loves you there, and no one cares a shit about you..........all at once. and vice versa.

Eric...Burn Shit And Blow Shit Up.

Bbadger...It's called fucking google it.

Kairielise...Or maybe you're just a giant douchecanoe who's mean to everyone.

JK...I'm sorry, but just the thought of a non-controversial thread on ePlaya is controversial.

48_love...Too much projected 'fun' and 'joy' makes me suspicious and unable to fully engage.

MDF...Plan your burn…Then Burn Your Plan

Simon...Embrace the Sock

Greycoyote...Pictures or it didn't happen.

VultureChow...I a recovering swagaholic. I have to resist my grabby nature

Savannah...Those aren't buttermilk biscuits I'm lying on.

SimonofthePlaya...I'm a motherfucking skeptic tank

Dwayne Gerken...Just be yourself. All the good personalities are taken.

TinkerMom…The password is pineapple.

MDF...Practice Love. Exercise Sex.

Tamarakay...When the only tool you got is a hammer, every problem looks like a hippie.

Matmilby…It is a pleasure to make your motherfucking acquaintance.

dragonpilot...I don't give a fuck that you don't give a shit that I don't give a fuck.

dragonpilot…Microwaving a frozen TV dinner is not radical self reliance.

chuckularone...Remember kids, if you don't sin then Jesus died for nothing.

Simon of the Playa...Embrace the Suck

Ratty...If you embrace change you'll love it forever.

Monkeystyle... It doesn't mean that having to be the guy that has to give people shit doesnt really, really suck.

AntiM...These are not my fuckos.

Unjonharley...Life's a bitch, then you go to Burning Man

Greycoyote... "Nuke the unborn gay eurotrash whales for Satan".

Ratty..."If you can't say something nice, shut the fuck up"

Remi...Can you at least admit that nuclear explosions are awesome!?

Canoe...I've been so stiff there I'd have been happy to have been knocked down in the heat and run over by a heard of fat bikes.

Eric... Never underestimate the contribution of a smiling face & a ready hand to help your neighbor.

Capt. Goddammit...Burning Man isn't cheap. It's also not a necessity.

Jackass...Well I'm all tapped out on "help", back to being cynical, critical, shit talking and being generally disruptive for the balance of the day.

"RobbiDobbs...I have been doing this shit for 13 years and still feel the burn.
Maybe there's an ointment for this."

Unjonharley...I'm the contraptioneer your mother warned you about.

Gaminwench...You think everything is dirty ...

Foxfur...walk over to the women’s area and it’s like getting a blow job from a rainbow.

???...Those who plan, Burn.

???...Next year was better!

Eric Cartman...Screw you hippies!

Tamarakay...You're so vain, you probably think this post is about you.

and think if you went back into the archives.....dang I've seen so many, I can't remember any of them! Imagine the folks who've been here a lot longer!

some of the "fights" and "verbal jousting" here were EPIC!!

Several years ago Simon, Mozy, Badger/Iso, JPQ/E2k, Here and There, HeliTack, Blue, BBS, some of Simon's socks, Appollonarius Zeus, MonkeyPoo, I could go on and on..........when some of them would get wound up, it's was like living in Snarktopolis!! drinking Snarktinis, shaken, not stirred.

Ratty, you've got two of my favorites already there. :D

These are some of the Sigs I have used in the past, or ones I hope to use, once the idea of BBadger twerking out by the trash fence stops amusing the fuck out of me. This is not by any means a complete list, as evidenced by the fact that there is nothing written by Nipple, JKisha, or the guy with the Frog in his sig whose nickname I cannot pronounce.

Quotes

"Shut the fuck up! You're in the desert! You're lucky if you can text out." -- TomServo

"I am bringing an institutional size box of Yay!" -- Foxfur

"Prancing is what Yggies does best!!! M-O-O-N, that spells prancing." -- Ygmir

"Twee Rating: 8.6" -- TheCryptofishist

"Cockring." -- TheCryptofishist

"Your logic is no weapon against my fancies! Whippersnapper!" -- TheCryptofishist

"I spent most of today destroying my bathroom in the name of science!" -- FossaFerox

"Shouldnt eplaya be more like ChristianMingle.com?" - Simon of the Playa

"Don't make Mommy put down her purse." - Ugly Dougly

"Hey, Burning Man is the ONE place i can get away with rapid cycling manic behavior and temporary psychosis and call it performance art so BACK THE FUCK OFF or I'll kill your pets. - Simon of the Playa

"It's not a party if someone isn't quietly sobbing in a corner." - Maladroit

"I was in Media Mecca last year when Trilo came looking for the wifi because he needed to rescue ePlaya. It crashed and he was in a bee costume, and it seemed perfectly natural." - Super Evil Brian

"Look at me, Look at me! LOOK AT MEEE!!!" -- MikeGyver

"I will only be running my passive aggressiveness when it is most needed and necessary; during the peak heat of the day, during the cool quiet of the evening, the early morning hours and during the coming twilight, and sometimes in-betweens. It will be lit, sometimes lividly." - LonesomeBri

"It is overcast and very cold. We both find ourselves shaky and disoriented and with a strangely scary quality in our eyes which we are explaining away as "extreme atmospheric pressure change'. " - Delle


This recollection from the 2011 Meet & Greet:

"Yep, I know I enjoyed watching you climb Yggy like he was an oak tree!" --Mojojita
"He IS an oak tree... thank goodness someone was sturdy!" -- Gaminwench

You just jogged my memory. Somewhere, there exists a print of my ass being made from that night as BBadger was recoiling in horror at the sight of my bare, hairy cheeks being spraypainted.

Who has it?

I chickened out on the arse prints, but I wrote a message.

One could also choose to view that as: my very generously relinquishing my portion of blue paint . . . that others might go on to do beautiful things.
Well aren't just a team player! I'm sure everyone after you is very appreciative that you spared the paint.

Maybe I got lucky though and since I got to draw my cheeks the way I Want them to look, not the way they do look.
And the megapost halfway down the page probably remains the funniest thing I ever said on ePlaya.

It was completely unhelpful.
