Syd meets... a lot of people

Entry 1693 posted in: The Holy Church of Iggy the Inuit


Syd Barrett meets...
Welsh folk legend Meic Stevens,
beat poet Spike Hawkins,
Dominique A. (girlfriend),
Carmel (girlfriend)
anti-psychiatrist R.D. Laing (almost) before jumping into his
Mini Cooper and disappearing at the horizon.

Just a couple of anoraky world exclusives at the Holy Church of Iggy the Inuit.

Holy Wars

Entry 1694 posted in: 1. General Mish Mash


In May I wrote how the Belgian catholic church was left unbothered after a flood of paedophile priest cases came suddenly out in the open. The church communicated, in its own veiled way, that they had set up a commission that would, in all discretion, investigate case per case and take appropriate action: Matthew 19:14.

This is partly understandable as lots of paedophile cases date from 20 years ago or longer, are legally expired and victims don't want to go through all the meaningless legal hassle. But at the same time the commission also received complaints that, following the letter of the law, had to be immediately handed over to justice, a thing the commission refused to do, in their own words to protect the privacy of the victims. (That some of the accused priests are still on the job was apparently not that important.)

But on Thursday the 24th of June justice reacted with Operation Chalice. This was a typical Belgian rude police operation.

Indiana Jones and the Chalice of Malice

In February I wrote how Belgian police invaded the house of a Moroccan immigrant, insulted him and threatened to put a bullet through his head, unaware of the fact that their victim fluently spoke Dutch and thus understood all they said. En passant the police smashed in windows, kicked furniture to pieces for the sheer fun of it, to find afterwards… that they had misread the street number and had really been instructed to search the house next-door: Escape from Kuregem.

I deducted that the Belgian police was a racist lot but Operation Chalice has now proven that Belgian police simply likes to act like a bunch of Liverpudlian hooligans on a day out. What bothers me even more: they are proud of it, because all television stations and newspapers had been informed beforehand of the raid, so that its images would go all over the world.

When the police invaded the Archbishop's Palace and the Cathedral in Mechelen they damaged a couple of graves, believing that priests had opened it on a moonlight-lid night to hide papers between cardinal Mercier's decomposing bones, and drilled holes through floors and walls to find secret hiding places, although all paedophilia files were neatly stacked in paper files and/or stored on computers, church administration is efficient, to say the least.

The church later called this a Da Vinci Code house search and a fishing expedition, hoping that amongst the thousands of seized documents there will be at least one to legitimate the search.

The church commission immediately retaliated by saying that this was unprecedented in Belgian juridical history and that the unwritten rule of charitable immunity (the fact that justice will respect the oath of secrecy of victim support organisations) had been breached. A few days later the commission could do nothing else than to disband itself as all files and computers had been seized.

Belgian justice isn't really trusted by the population as it reflects the Belgian disease of mediocrity. This was again proven by a remark from Jos Colpin, press magistrate of Brussels justice and a not entirely unbespoken loyal follower of the liberal open VLD party, now running for the imbecile of the week award. When journalists asked him that lots of paedophilia victims were afraid that their files would come out in the open, against their will and wish for privacy, he cynically replied that 'this was a pity for them'. As an unnecessary extra blow in the face of the victims this could count. Luckily the next day another press officer tried to appease the remark and also the minister of justice found it necessary to intervene.

Stalin wasn't stallin'

If there is one constant in this world it is that imbeciles can be found everywhere, especially amongst press officers. The Vatican found it necessary to condemn the house searches and compared it to the oppression under the communist system and a while later the Pope himself invited the Belgian archbishop Léonard to discuss the matter.

When the current pope was still known as Ratzinger he instructed every bishop in the world to classify paedophilia abuse complaints under the pontifical secret, in other words never to instruct justice about it. It is believed that there are about 5000 child abuse cases in Belgian catholic church that have never been handed over to Belgian justice so the Vatican should be careful by accusing Belgian justice of Stalinist methods.

Alas, Belgian justice is not only known for its shady press officers, but has also a rather bad reputation concerning its many leaks. So when yet another press officer told that the victims were protected by the secrecy of the investigation everybody, the journalists at first place, had a good laugh. Any cretin knows an average Belgian official investigation has got more holes than Britney Spears has got knickers.

Holy Wars

Meanwhile the church investigation is under fire and justice doesn't even try to hide the fact that there is an open war going on between the so-called catholic (or christian) appointed judges and liberal or socialist judges (although judges are supposed to be neutral they are chosen according to the political families in parliament). At the same time the lawyers of the catholic church are using every legal trick to make the ongoing investigation (and the raid) suspect and illegal. Some parts of the investigation have already reached the press and it is only the question who has been leaking this. It would indeed be a very stupid move of the freethought faction of Belgian justice to undermine its own investigation by giving details to the outside world.

Nude dot com

The most recent leak, that contradictorily appeared in a catholic popular newspaper, and thus shows how dirty this war is becoming, is about a picture of a young naked child that has been found on the personal computer of cardinal Danneels. The picture in question, found on the temporary internet files of the cardinal's computer, had been automatically downloaded from www.cobra.be, the cultural portal site of Belgian television, made by a Belgian photographer and nominated for a national art award, so hardly pornographic or paedophilic material. The cardinal immediately issued an official complaint and perhaps that is what was the initial intention of the leak, finding a way to undermine the investigation.

Obviously this does not take away that cardinal Danneels is named, if we may believe other leaks to the press, in at least 50 files where he refused to take measures against paedophilic priests. But as things are evolving now I fear that in the end investigations will be discontinued nolle prosequi.

Catholic church will lick its wounds and carry on as before, Belgian justice will continue as ineffective as ever and in the end the victims, as always, will still remain the unheard victims…

Julian Palacios' Syd Barrett biography

Entry 1695 posted in: 1. General Mish Mash, 5. The Pink Thing


Julian Palacios Julian Palacios, contributor and friend of the Holy Church of Iggy the Inuit let us know that the revised version of his Syd Barrett biography (first edition, 1998 already) will be out any day now. So, for the first time in the history of Felix Atagong's Unfinished Projects, let us celebrate a commercial break.

Update: The final title is 'Syd Barrett & Pink Floyd: Dark Globe', and it is out 29 September in Europe and America (Source: Julian Palacios).

Here is a loud announcement. Silence in the studio!

Syd Barrett, who died in 2006, was a teenage art-school student when he founded Pink Floyd. Famous before his twentieth birthday, Barrett led the charge of psychedelia onstage at London s famed UFO Club, and his acid-inspired lyrics became a hallmark of London s 1967 Summer of Love. Improvisatory and whimsical, Zen-like and hard-living, Barrett pushed the boundaries of music into new realms of artistic expression while fighting what would prove to be a losing battle against his inner demons.

Julian Palacios' probing and comprehensive biography, ten years in the writing, features a wealth of interviews with Syd s family, friends, and members of the band, providing an unvarnished look at Barrett s life and work. Author Julian Palacios traces Syd s evolution from precocious youth to psychedelic rock star; from leading light to drug burnout; from lost exile to celebrated icon, examining both his wide-ranging inspirations and his enduring influence on generations of musicians. A never-to-be-forgotten casualty of the excesses, innovations and idealism of the 1960s, Syd Barrett is one of the most heavily mythologized men in rock, and this book offers a rare portrayal of a unique spirit in flight and freefall.

Buy Syd Barrett & Pink Floyd: Dark Globe on Amazon.

The Terrorist Act of Breastfeeding

Entry 1696 posted in: 1. General Mish Mash


...and you perverts probably thought I was going to put a naked boob here! In the last two years I only had to use the term imbecile of the week twice but what I read yesterday in the newspaper made me re-examine my pudeur to use that particular term. This week's Felix Atagong Imbecile of the Week Award goes to the the doctor of the ASZ hospital of Aalst (Belgium), who is of the opinion that breastfeeding is obscene and even called the police to prevent a mother from nourishing her baby. The story so far:

On Wednesday a woman, who had fractured her ankle ligaments, was brought to the emergency ward of the Aalst ASZ hospital. She waited, in the hallway, until a doctor would see her. Unfortunately the mother had her 3 months old baby with her, obviously the hospital would have preferred if she had let the boy behind in the trunk of the car, and the baby was hungry, and when I mean hungry, I mean hungry!

So she did the perfect natural thing of opening her shirt and (discretely) breastfeed the baby. Immediately a doctor and a few nurses came to her, claiming that - according to the house rules - it was forbidden to breastfeed babies in hospital, and wheeled her, out of sight, to a private room.

Normally the incident should have been closed, but not for this mother. Annoyed by the fact that a doctor prevented her to feed her baby in a waiting room she asked the nurses to show her the hospital statutes where it was actually written that breastfeeding was forbidden. They didn't.

She then wheeled over to the information desk and asked once again for the document. They said they couldn't. (Obviously, the hospital later admitted that such a rule doesn't exist.)

The mother went back to the public waiting hall and continued feeding her baby. A row started. Other patients and visitors defended the mother but according to the doctor in charge the only proper way to feed a baby was to tie it down in a bed and stick a needle through its veins. It all became rather tense. The hospital called the police.

The riot police arrived within minutes, which must have been about the record of the year. One never sees the police when somebody holds a gun to your brains, but when they are needed to arrest a breastfeeding mother they are as fast as superman.

Four heavily armed policemen entered the hospital. Four. But they didn't really know exactly how to react. I mean, it is simple to hit an immigrant into hospital, especially when it is four against one, but how do you hit an already injured mother, who is breastfeeding a baby, in hospital when she is already in hospital? Modern society can sometimes be very puzzling for our police force.

They thought for a bit.
This was a painstakingly long process.

Finally, one of the coppers, probably the one who could read and write, switched over to Plan B, the one that never fails.
If you can't hit a suspect, intimidate him (in this case: her).
He stretched his body in all possible directions and loudly proclaimed that according to Belgian law breastfeeding in public was considered an obscene act and a disturbance of general order. The three other policemen had tears in their eyes and one even started to applaud. With exception of the doctor and the nurses, everybody in the waiting room loudly protested and booed.

But boy, did this cop regret afterwards what he has just said, because obviously he had picked the wrong woman to bully.

What I haven't mentioned up till now is that the woman in question was, is, the coordinating executive of MammaCafe, a Belgian - volunteer driven - breastfeeding organisation with 20 meeting places and subsidiaries all over Flanders. Probably there isn't one women in Flanders who knows more about breastfeeding than she does. She gave the cop a small exposé about the legal issues of breastfeeding in Belgium, proving that his bullying tactics had been based on a misinterpretation of the Belgian constitution.

And now something inexplicable happened, something that normally only happens when policemen are confronted with Kalashnikov armed thugs in the Brussels Kuregem area. The four policemen turned their back and went away without even filing a report. The incident as such never happened.

But also the mother in question had to leave the hospital as the doctor still refused to treat her, which is in contradiction with his Hippocratic Oath. Theoretically doctor (and hospital) could be sued for refusing to help a person in need, but chances seemed small as even the police refused to note it down.

Luckily, in the mean time, at least one visitor had contacted the ombudsman of the hospital to complain about the event and, as this is summertime, also the newspapers and private and national television got hold of the news. The hospital was obliged to officially apologise and issued a press declaration that excels in saying absolutely nothing of importance.

(The above article is entirely based upon facts, some situations have been enlarged for satirical purposes.)

NEW: THE ARIANEB WALKTHROUGHS have now got their own domain:
http://arianeb.atagong.com


The photo shoot! One of the most cherished episodes of the ArianeB saga. This scenario was slightly altered in version 6.4 but you have come to the right place to find out how to get there... all the way. (If you are looking for the photo shoot walkthrough for versions 6.21 or 6.3, please consult: How to have a photoshoot?)

Start a new game of ArianeB 6.4 and...

First: How do I introduce myself? 
Second: How to have a steak dinner? 

After dinner...
Go for a drive. (click on the car)
Go for a drive.
Head towards outskirts.
Take a scenic drive out of town.
Continue drive.

You forgot to get gas?
Now we are stuck out here in the middle of nowhere.
On a scale of 1 to 10 you get a 3.
THE END

So next time if you want to drive to the suburbs, be sure to get some petrol in the tank... like this...

First: How do I introduce myself? 
Second: How to have a steak dinner? 

After dinner...
Go for a drive. (click on the car)
Go for a drive.

Go to gas station.
Fill up tank. ArianeB has bought a camera.
Hit the road.

Head to outskirts.
Take a scenic drive out of town.
Continue drive.
Get out and look around.

Enjoy the view. ArianeB tests the camera.
Ask to take her picture.
Take snapshot.
Compliment: You could be a model. ArianeB will only model if you compliment her after each picture. If you forget this or go to fast she will end the session. [As an alternative you can also go back to the car and 'make out'. This is a rather short, but very funny episode.]

Ask her to try a modeling pose. Say 'Gorgeous'. (click on her head for the compliment, the text will appear at the bottom of the screen)
Ask her for an even sexier pose. Say 'Very sexy'.
Ask her to pose topless.
Have her take her shirt off. (Version 6.4 has several new pictures and this is one of those.)
Say 'You could sell jeans to me'.

Ask her to be less modest, more sexy. Say 'Wow, you are so beautiful'.
Ask her what she wants to do. I am willing to take my pants off, and pose in my underwear.
Take a picture.
Say 'I couldn't help it, you have a nice butt'.

Ask her to pose in her underwear. Say 'Wow, now that is sexy!'.
Face the camera and slowly lower your panties. Say 'The innocent look is so cute'. By now ArianeB is getting a bit scary and she asks you what to do next.

Say 'I'll let you decide. You can quit anytime.'
Have her take her pants off.
Say 'That was a brave sexy move.'

Let's try an artistic nude by the car. Say 'You are too hot to be arrested'.
Ask her for another nude shot. Say 'You are really getting into this'.
Ask her for full backside nudity. Say 'Nice ass'. You could probably see more than my ass from that angle.

Ask her to grab her breasts. Say 'Your breasts are beautiful in any position'. ArianeB is a bit tired of being the only model, so she has got an idea.
Give her the camera.
Take off your clothes and pose nude.
Let it all hang out.

Pose for a gratuitous penis shot.
Is this sexy enough? The end picture of the photo shoot can go different ways, if you want to try all endings out you will have to play this scenario more than once.

Either you can:
How about you touching my penis? (Do not forget to return the favor afterwards.)
or:
How about a gratuitous pussy shot?

Back home Ariane kindly asks you to stay at her place, now what would you do, being the gentleman you pretend to be?

ArianeB 6.4 is not only a bug release, it has some added value as well. Some minor bugs have been repaired, some extra pictures have been added to the photo shoot and Rebecca's role as general pain in the ass has been somewhat elaborated.

In this walkthrough - that can only be played if you have ArianeB 6.4 - we will follow the steps we have described earlier on in How to go to the bar with Rebecca? but we will NOT dive into the pool for a Marco Polo game. No need to click on that link really, we're here to refresh your brain.

First: How do I introduce myself?
Second: How to have a steak dinner? 
Third: How to go to the lingerie store? 

Buy the right type of lingerie and Rebecca will ask to have a drink at the nearby bar.
ArianeB replies: I`m here with a date. I`ll let him decide what we should do.
Agree to drinks at the club with Ariane and Rebecca.
Ask Ariane to dance.
Go back to the bar.

Buy the next round of drinks.
Watch the two of them dance together.
Let them continue to dance.

Take Ariane and Rebecca back to Ariane's place.
Rebecca immediately wants to try the pool: "I'm okay with swimming naked, IF you two are willing! What do you say?"

Actually, to trigger the brand new scenarios, we don't want to skinny dip, we need to have a stiff drink.
Go inside for drinks instead. (Click at the bottom left side of the image.)
Have a drink.

Rebecca heads for the bedroom, following her triggers the scenario we have already encountered at How to end up in bed with Rebecca? Ariane urgently needs to pee, so I wouldn't follow her either if I were you.

Wait in the hall. Ariane sneaks out of the bathroom and says:
Just because Rebecca is here does not mean we need to end our date.
As long as we keep quiet, Rebecca should just stay in my room and not bother us.
We can`t leave her alone, but I`m sure we can find plenty to do around the house for fun.

Let's explore these fun things in the three next 'Rebecca Tapes' walkthroughs.

The Rebecca Tapes: How to steal Rebecca's clothes?

Entry 1699 posted in: a. ArianeB


NEW: THE ARIANEB WALKTHROUGHS have now got their own domain:
http://arianeb.atagong.com


The extra Rebecca content can only be activated if you play ArianeB 6.4. You have met Ariane at her place, barbecued her a steak dinner, bought some lingerie and had a drink with her and Rebecca at the local bar.

Back at home don't jump in the pool, but take a nightcap instead. Probably you already know how to do this all, but because it is summertime, I will give you the places where you can find all instructions. Ain't I cute?

First: How do I introduce myself?
Second: How to have a steak dinner? 
Third: How to go to the lingerie store? 
Fourth: Getting ready for the pillow fight 

We pick up the story where Ariane sneaks out of the bathroom.

Meet her in the living room.
Go to the backyard.
Go swimming. Ariane does not want to disturb Rebecca and undresses at the patio. (This 4.6 behaviour can also be triggered, under certain circumstances, during normal gameplay).

Let her undress. Taking off shirt.
Let her undress. Taking off pants.
Let her undress. Finally the underwear goes.

Let her get in first.
Jump in naked.
Keep swimming naked.

You can:
Let's swim some more.
Swim underwater.
Follow her out of the pool

Or, as an alternative:
Challenge her to a race.
Get ready to race.
A. B. C. (More information about the underwater race: How to challenge ArianeB for an underwater race?).
Follow her out of the pool.

Okay, I`m standing outside here, totally naked and dripping wet! I didn`t bring a towel with me. What should we do next?

Get in the hot tub.
Suggest playing "Truth or Dare".

Truth.
Yes (or No).

Truth. Any question will do, you have the following possibilities (and they all lead to funny answers) :
Have you ever had sex in a hot tub?
Do you own any vibrators?
Where is the weirdest place you have had sex?
Ever join the mile high club?
Have you ever been naked in public?

Dare.
I dare you to kiss me.
End dare.

Dare. The fact that Rebecca is in the house triggers a few new possibilities:
I dare you to kiss me. (This can (will) lead to some hot tub action.)
Let me touch your naked boobs. (This can (will) lead to some hot tub action, as well.)
I dare you to play with your pussy. (Bad choice, Ariane kicks you out immediately.)
I dare you to go into your bedroom and make out with Rebecca. (Bad choice, Ariane kicks you out immediately.)

But in order to proceed with the show, choose the last option:
I dare you to go into your bedroom and steal Rebecca`s clothes.
Ariane accepts: Shh!! She should be asleep, and I don't want to wake her.

Wait in hall while Ariane sneaks in.
Watch her try them on.
Complement her.

Rebecca enters the scene and they immediately start to quarrel.
Watch argument.
Unfortunately Ariane kicks you out as she has to deal with a furious Rebecca.
Kiss her goodnight.

The extra Rebecca content can only be activated if you play ArianeB 6.4. In the previous walkthrough we stole Rebecca's clothes so it is understandable that she was slightly annoyed. This time we will try not to disturb her. Let's find out if we will succeed.

First: How do I introduce myself?
Second: How to have a steak dinner? 
Third: How to go to the lingerie store? 
Fourth: Getting ready for the pillow fight 

Ariane sneaks out of the bathroom.
Meet her in the living room.
Go to the living room.

You have to be quiet not to disturb Rebecca, so if you press
Dance to music
Ariane will disagree.
Pass on music.

Kiss her.
Stop kissing. Go ahead. Work your way down.

Massage her shoulders.
Stop massaging. (Do not give Ariane extra drinks even if she asks for it.)

Caress her breasts.
Stop fondling. Making out just turned to foreplay. Uhh, that was a hint! (As some of the texts are randomised, you might actually read something else on your screen.)

Take off her shirt. Brace yourself for something spectacular!
Help her. Trying to get into my pants, are you? Who, moi?

Take off her pants.
Help her. It is not entirely impossible to get Ariane out of her Sloggi as well, but then ArianeB must meet Rebecca in her evening dress, instead of jeans and blouse. Check How to end up in bed with Rebecca? and figure it out yourself.

Rebecca enters the living room.
React.

The magic has broken and Ariane kicks you out.
Kiss her goodnight.

The extra Rebecca content can only be activated if you play ArianeB 6.4. So far, inviting Rebecca into the house has always lead to near disaster. In this third installment, and I hope I will not spoil your lust to carry on playing, it will not be different.

First: How do I introduce myself?
Second: How to have a steak dinner? 
Third: How to go to the lingerie store? 
Fourth: Getting ready for the pillow fight 

Ariane sneaks out of the bathroom.
Meet her in the living room.
Go to the kitchen.

Ariane's suggestion box kicks in. (Don't let her drink.)
We could sit on the bench out back and look at tonights beautiful sky.
Ask if she has any other ideas. (or you can accept to save a few clicks.)

Want to go out to the couch and make out a little? (This scenario has been described in: How to spoil an ongoing anatomy lesson?)
Ask if she has any other ideas.

You have seen my pool. Let`s go swimming. (The swimming scene has been described in: How to steal Rebecca's clothes?)
Accept the suggestion. This will zap the scene to the patio where several options are out in the open.

Here we are in my backyard. It`s a clear night tonight, the sky is beautiful.
Sit and look at the stars.

Ariane will test your general knowledge of the star constellations or the positioning of the moon craters. For more information about this subject you don't need to open your astronomical atlas, just consult: How to look at the sky (and win the gamble)? Alternatively you can download the patch pack that reveals the answers to her questions. If you win the gamble Ariane asks you whether you would like a piece of spare cake from the kitchen or if you'd rather prefer that she takes her shirt off.

Cake or Boobs. Cake or Boobs. Cake or Boobs.
What will it be boy?

Take my shirt off. All right, a deal is a deal I`ll take off my shirt.
Let her undress.

Go back inside.
Get a snack from the kitchen.
Eat some cake. Enters Rebecca: Can I have some cake, too? (This triggers a rather sarcastic remark from Ariane.)

Watch Rebecca.
Stare at Rebecca. Ariane ends the date.
Kiss her goodnight.

The ArianeB 6.4 walkthroughs: How to have a slightly different photoshoot?

Entry 1702 posted in: a. ArianeB


NEW: THE ARIANEB WALKTHROUGHS have now got their own domain:
http://arianeb.atagong.com


This scenario was slightly altered in version 6.4. (If you are looking for the photo shoot walkthrough for versions 6.21 or 6.3, please consult: How to have a slightly different photoshoot?)

The previous walkthrough showed us how to have a photo shoot after dinner (with ArianeB dressed casually). It has been said before that different situations can (and will) be triggered according to previous circumstances. In this walkthrough we will get a slightly different photo shoot after having a bikini dinner. ArianeB will first change clothes when we decide to leave the house. Start a new game of ArianeB 6.4 and...

First: How do I introduce myself? 
Second: How to have a patio dinner? 

After dinner: Go somewhere else.
Go back inside.
Go to the bedroom to get dressed.
Follow her into the bedroom.
Let her get her pants on.

Go somewhere else.
Go for a drive.
Go for a drive.
Go to gas station.
Fill up tank. ArianeB has bought a camera.

Hit the road.
Head to outskirts.
Take a scenic drive out of town.
Continue drive.

Get out and look around.
Enjoy the view.
Ask to take her picture.
Take snapshot.

You will need to compliment Ariane after each picture. Not doing so will end the photoshoot.

Better than nice you could be a model. (Compliment)
Ask her to try a modeling pose. Say 'Gorgeous'. (Compliment her by clicking her face)
Ask her for an even sexier pose. Say 'Very sexy'.

Ask her to pose in her underwear.
Take a picture of her in her underwear. Say'Nice legs'.
Action shot-jump in the air. Say'You would look good even in motion blur'.

Pull your shirt down over your panties. Say'Yes thats what I'm looking for.
Let's try some sexy photos by the car. True, but you have the pinup look.
Your panties are not very sexy, a thong would be better.
Have her take her panties off.
Wow that is daring and very hot. (Compliment.)
Step back, bend over, and stretch toward the car. I like that look, this is the best picture yet.

Two different shots can be taken here...

Semi Nude Front Shot
How about a semi nude front shot? I'll let you decide what you want to do next.
I'm ready when you are. Wow, you have an incredible body.

Nude Back Shot
How about a nude back shot?
Let her take her shirt off.
That is a nice sexy pose.
Pose facing forward. Wow, you have an incredible body.

After the previous shots the game will revert back to the 'default' ending from the previous walkthrough.

Get in the car and relax for a picture. I'm feeling more relaxed already. Relaxed looks good on you (compliment her).
Ask her to grab her breasts. Say 'Your breasts are beautiful in any position'.

ArianeB is a bit tired of being the only model, so she has got an idea.
Give her the camera.

Take off your clothes and pose nude.
Cover your genitals. ArianeB understands that you are being modest and proposes to show hers if you show yours.

You can either:
Pose for gratuitous penis shot.
Or:
OK, you go first then.

How about one of my penis between your legs?
Got the money shot.
Ungh!... Ungh!... Ungh!... Ungh!... Ungh!... Ungh!... Ungh!... Ungh!... Ungh!...

Drive her home. Ariane makes you a proposal you can't refuse.
Yes.

Version 6.4 of ArianeB has changed the photoshoot by the lake scenario and here is an extra mini-scenario that has been added as well. Basically it is a combination of the two previous ones (How to have a photoshoot? and How to have a slightly different photoshoot?), but with a few extra clicks.

As we are entering completist territory here, this might not be very interesting for the casual player. You are hereby warned. Start a new game of ArianeB 6.4 and...

First: How do I introduce myself? 
Second: How to have a patio dinner? 

After dinner: Go somewhere else.
Go back inside.
Go to the bedroom to get dressed.
Follow her into the bedroom.
Let her get her pants on.

Go somewhere else.
Go for a drive.
Go for a drive.
Go to gas station.
Fill up tank. ArianeB has bought a camera.

Hit the road.
Head to outskirts.
Take a scenic drive out of town.
Continue drive.

Get out and look around.
Enjoy the view.
Ask to take her picture.
Take snapshot.

You will need to compliment Ariane after each picture. Not doing so will end the photoshoot.

Better than nice you could be a model. (Compliment)
Ask her to try a modeling pose. Say 'Gorgeous'. (Compliment her by clicking her face)
Ask her for an even sexier pose. Say 'Very sexy'.

Ask her to pose in her underwear.
Take a picture of her in her underwear. Say'Nice legs'.
Action shot-jump in the air. Say'You would look good even in motion blur'.
Pull your shirt down over your panties. Say'Yes thats what I'm looking for.

Instead of going to the car to make some pictures, we take a different approach...

Ask her to lift her shirt up. OK, I can lift my shirt up a bit. Only a bit? We will certainly not compliment Ariane for that but try to push her a bit further...
Higher. I`ll lift up so you can see part of my boobs.
Higher. OK, I`ll flash my nipples. Now we're talking!
Perfect.
Very nice breasts. (Compliment.)

Go topless. Say 'Wow, now that is sexy!'. (Compliment.)
Face the camera and slowly lower your panties. Say 'The innocent look is so cute'.

By now ArianeB is getting a bit scary and she asks you what to do next.
Say 'I'll let you decide. You can quit anytime.' (Oldest trick in the book.)
Oh, why the hell not. I`ll try posing in my birthday suit.
Have her take her pants off. Say 'That was a brave sexy move.'

Let's try an artistic nude by the car. Say 'You are too hot to be arrested'.
Ask her for another nude shot. Say 'You are really getting into this'.
Ask her for full backside nudity. Say 'Nice ass'.
You could probably see more than my ass from that angle.

Ask her to grab her breasts. Say 'Your breasts are beautiful in any position'.
ArianeB is a bit tired of being the only model, so she has got an idea.
Give her the camera.
Take off your clothes and pose nude...

After some necessary rhythmical work you can drive Ariane home where she makes you (again) a proposal you can't refuse.
Yes!

By exploring the latest Ariane version I stumbled upon a very funny intermezzo I had never seen before. The pictures however date paradoxically from the 18th of July 2005, so I have missed this situation for the last quinquennium. One of the reasons why ArianeB is considered the best of all adult dating games (in my humble opinion, anyway) is not that there are so many different ways to achieve a certain goal, all with their appropriate images (over 1200), but also that nearly every situation has its hidden, often funny, moments. And here is one of those. it is yet another version of the photo shoot by the lake, although something goes very wrong.

First: How do I introduce myself? 
Second: How to have a patio dinner? 

After dinner: Go somewhere else.
Go back inside.
Go to the bedroom to get dressed.
Follow her into the bedroom.
Let her get her pants on.

Go somewhere else.
Go for a drive.
Go for a drive.
Go to gas station.
Fill up tank. ArianeB has bought a camera.

Hit the road.
Head to outskirts.
Take a scenic drive out of town.
Continue drive.

Get out and look around.
Enjoy the view.
Ask to take her picture.
Take snapshot.

It look OK. Try making a funny face.
Ask her to pose in a silly pose.

Try another pose. Ariane is fed up and want you to do a silly pose.
Pull down your pants and moon the camera. Ha Ha, that's hilarious. I can't believe you did that! Now I have a picture of your ass.
Pull your pants up.

Ask her to moon the camera.
Wow nice ass!
Get back in the car. Moonlight and muzak, need I say more?

Kiss her.
Finish kiss.
Make out.
Stop necking. Hold on a minute . . . Let me get this shirt off!
Help get her shirt off.

Outside the car you hear: "Whoa! Check out that girl's titties ! Go for it, dude!"
Grab her breasts.

The magic moment is over Ariane wants to get home and is not in the mood anymore. And so am I. Catch you on another upgrade of ArianeB!

ArianeB 6.4

Entry 1705 posted in: a. ArianeB


NEW: THE ARIANEB WALKTHROUGHS have now got their own domain:
http://arianeb.atagong.com


Although it was promised that with version 6.3 ArianeB had reached its final release a new version was unexpectedly made public on the 16th of July.

This blog is more or less to blame as I once mentioned to the ArianeB creator that there was a small magically appearing towels bug in the game. Not only did Mister Ariane Barnes repair the bug, he also added some extra goodies on top.

One is that the photo shoot by the lake scenario has been altered a bit, a second change is that a couple of new Rebecca sleepover scenarios have been added. To quote the creator:

I decided to make it possible, under certain circumstances, to continue the date with Ariane, with Rebecca sleeping in the bedroom. Of course you can’t go anywhere and leave Rebecca alone, nor can you enter the bedroom since Rebecca is there, nor can you do anything noisy like shower or dance.

Of course this wouldn't be the number one place to look for ArianeB walkthroughs anymore if I hadn't already posted solutions for these situations: The ArianeB 6.4 walkthroughs: All in one.

Unfortunately, the game was only 24-hours old when a new, rather irritating, bug was found. A solution was posted after a few hours and the version that can now be downloaded at the official ArianeB website is already patched.

Unfortunately (again!), another bug crept in, but this can be remedied by adding one line to the script of the two following pages:

Adding “parent.rebec = 0;” to line 154 of text82.htm,
or line 188 of text12.htm would fix it…

(For the lazy ones, here are the patched pages. Just replace the two original html pages with the new ones.)

Suddenly the ArianeB creator does not speak anymore about this being the last incarnation of the dating simulator, as a matter of fact his latest comment goes like this…

You got me thinking about a possible more elaborate fix giving the option to invite Rebecca home after the strip club victory. Hmmm…

Suddenly I feel there will still be some new versions to follow… it will be a very hot summer...

True Story V, Atagong's continuing struggle with helpdesks...

Entry 1706 posted in: 6. Self-Made Monsters


Exceeded quota One of my daily jobs as an IT monkey, next to changing printer toner that for some members of the company I work for seems to be a task of gargantuan proportions, is to take care of the safety of our network.

Although our (rented) mail server has a sophisticated anti-virus and spam removal system (if I may believe the blurb), the firewall has a daily updated spam and anti-virus protection (if I may believe the expensive maintenance contract) and the individual workstations have a top-notch anti-virus suite there is always the odd chance that a Trojan or backdoor (real good old-fashioned viruses are so seldom, these days) slips through the system.

And that is what happened last Friday. As most of the users only have limited rights on their machines usually no harm is done. On top of that these virus-loaded mails can be spotted from a 10 miles distance, because they invariably use old tricks nobody falls for anymore, except when… but that is for later.

Sales car caviar

So when suddenly a machine started spitting out 900 mails in half an hour, using the infamous relay port 25, I had a pretty clear idea where shit had hit the fan. I didn’t need to consult Sherlock Holmes to figure out that this sudden burst of activity could only come from the division that, by definition, is the least active but has the most expensive cars, the most modern laptops, the highest expense accounts but the least discipline. I am of course speaking of the sales department.

For historical reasons sales people in our company must have the nec plus ultra without fully understanding the nec nor the ultra. Sometimes this can be interpreted more literally than you think. I was once present at a sales meeting where the managing director was giving a blurry motivational speech about how sales figures and the company’s future existence where going hand in hand. For about 20 minutes the MD spit out phrases like:
no sales figures ergo no turnover,
no turnover ergo no profit,
no profit ergo no jobs…
At the end he asked if there were any questions, the sales director raised her hand and asked: who is this new client Ergo you have been going on about? (I swear on both my testicles that this really happened.)

The sales division is the one that asked for the latest Microsoft Office Suite, because the 65536 lines limit of older Excel versions was really not enough to make 15 line offers and then, very seriously, phoned me to ask how to they had to calculate a sum. My answer, making my dodgy reputation as a grumpy IT manager only bigger, is invariably the same: you can use exactly the same formulae you used in Excel XP, Excel 2000, Excel 98 or Excel 95 for that matter. Not wanting to probe deeper into my dark cynical brain the person at the other end said ‘thank you’ and is probably still busy typing =A1+A2+A3+A4+A5+A6+A7+A8… Lets hope the columns he needed to add really didn’t hold 65536 plus one cells…

Somewhere last month I got a call from sales asking how they could find out if a certain name (in an Excel list) was present on a long list of names. So I told them, trying not to put an overt sarcastic tone in my voice, that perhaps the function to FIND a certain piece of information inside others pieces of information was the FIND function, just like the function to calculate a SUM in Excel is mysteriously called SUM.

Pie in the sky

And you will probably not believe me if I tell you that one of my side-jobs as an IT-manager is to receive the weekly turnover list of the sales people and turn it into a pie chart. Making a pie chart in Excel for them is what brain surgery looks like for me, apparently. (Don't dare interpreting the last sentence the wrong way!)

Last week I found out to my amusement that not one single person of our sales team was able to calculate a percentage, and after a 30 minutes discussion they decided to send a 10 lines Excel sheet over to me. I changed the wrong total for the good one (I wasn't bluffing when I told you they don't know how to make a sum) and suddenly it all added to 100%. It’s nice to be known as a computer genius.

Google wants you

But the bottom line was that one of our sales laptops was spitting out a backdoor, a Trojan or whatever you call these things nowadays, at an incredible speed. I located the PC in a jiffy and found out that the mail in question had been send (apparently) from Google containing a job offer. Obviously the sender's address had been spoofed and the attachment contained not an application form but a malicious program.

For my own intellectual sanity, and because it is rather hard to believe anyway, let me rephrase the previous paragraph. One of our sales persons saw a mail from the Google headquarters coming in, genuinely believing that, out of the billions of persons on this Earth, she had been chosen personally by Eric E. Schmidt to work for them, unzipped the attached messages and ran the exe file that was hiding inside. If creationists need proof that Darwin's evolutionary theory is humbug they just need to come and visit the company I work for.

It really didn’t take me a lot of time to neutralise the backdoor, although the sales person in question was constantly nagging that she had loads of work to do and that she was missing the sale of the century due to my intervention, but then there was still the matter that my anti-virus providers, all 3 of them, had failed me.

Helpdesk Blues #1

I started with the mail server guys. I sent a mail to the anti-virus mailbox but antivirus@belbone.be replied that it didn’t exist anymore. Fair enough, I don't use this address very often and it might have changed since a couple of years ago.

Time to call the Belgacom helpdesk, Belgium’s biggest telecom operator.

“I would like to point out that your professional spam and anti-virus filter, that I actually pay for, let through a harmful mail last Friday, and that today, on Monday these mails are still slipping through the maze.”

As usual the voice at the other side was very friendly and very professional:
“Please send a mail to abuse@belgacom.be and they will look into the matter.”

I like it when helpdesk people are efficient like that. So I did what they asked. Not five minutes later I got a return message and it read something along these lines:

This mailbox has exceeded its quota.
The exchange server will not attempt to send it again.
Thanks for your comprehension.

It was very reassuring realising that the biggest telecom provider of Belgium hadn't been checking its abuse mailbox for the last couple of weeks.

Helpdesk Blues #2

Time for Plan B. I knew where the original mail, containing the worm, had come from (not from Google, obviously) and I send a mail to abuse@versatel.be, but that mail address also was invalid. A WHOIS lookup showed me that Versatel was now in the hands of KPN.

Time to call the KPN helpdesk. To my amazement the KPN helpdesk lead me to Mobistar, Belgium’s second biggest telecom operator. A very friendly and professional man tried to help me.

"The IP range you gave me is not one of ours.", he said. "We have indeed taken over the professional branch of the KPN business, but the home consumer market has been taken over by Base. I’ll give you the helpdesk number of Base Consumer Market."

Helpdesk Blues #3

Time to call the Base helpdesk, Belgium’s third biggest telecom operator. The phone guy was very professional and very friendly.

"I can see it is one of our routers", he said, "but as the IP addresses are dynamically given whenever someone connects we will need the exact headers of the mail in question."

"I can give you all that.", I replied, "But what are you going to do, as the person probably is not even aware he or she is sending Trojans around?"

"After locating the router in question we will monitor it and if this person is still sending viruses around we will contact him or her and in the worst possible case switch off the router from a distance until the problem has been solved."

"Sounds fine to me, were do you want me to send the mail headers?"

"Support@base.be, sir. We will immediately take care of it, glad to be of assistance to you."

Minutes after I send the information I heard a reassuring ping. It was a message from Base. It read:

We are sorry we can’t deliver your mail, as this mailbox no longer exists.

The world is in safe hands, I can assure you that.

Rod Harrod remembers The Crom

Entry 1707 posted in: The Holy Church of Iggy the Inuit


Years before she entered the Underground and met Syd Barrett, Ig’s first venture for glory and fame came when the cameras of NME magazine spotted her in November 1966. Issue 1037 had an article Come with NME for a Pic-Visit to the Cromwellian, written by Norrie Drummond with photos by Napier Russell and Barry Peake.

In the latest article at the Holy Church of Iggy the Inuit we delve deeper into the Cromwellian's history with:
an exclusive testimony from Rod Harrod, the man who signed Jimi Hendrix,
nearly first-hand information from sixties popstar Twinkle (Lynn Annette Ripley),
gruesome details about The Bend dance-craze that hit Britain in 1966 and last but not least...
the truth about Patrick Kerr's maniacal broom cupboard behaviour.

The ArianeB 6.45 walkthroughs: How to go to the stripclub without Rebecca?

Entry 1708 posted in: a. ArianeB


NEW: THE ARIANEB WALKTHROUGHS have now got their own domain:
http://arianeb.atagong.com


Next to some bugfixes ArianeB 6.45 also changed Ariane's strip club behaviour. To quote its maker:

A running theme in Dating Ariane simulator is that Ariane is a modern feminist who is not delicate or submissive.
She does only what she wants to do.
If it gives her pleasure, she will do it.
If it gives others pleasure, she may do it if she is assured a mutual exchange.

Taking Ariane to the strip club and encouraging her a bit will not suffice anymore to get the full monty. Shark's Lagoon member Fraekke found out that Ariane will only strip to the limit if two game parameters have been activated before going to the club.

Some of these game parameters, and there are about 60 of those, can be consulted by starting the game with the default2.htm page, that acts like a debugging page. The two parameters that needs to be triggered are:

var daring = 0; //0 = not 1 = more 2 = brave
var topf = 0; // Top (chest foreplay count while making out - too much is awkward)

Both of them needs to have 2 points in order to trigger the following events, so let's skip the nerdy stuff and start with the game, shall we? Still one quick remark though: in version 6.45 there is still the opportunity to go to the stripclub with both Ariane and Rebecca. That scenario is noted down in How to go to the strip club with Rebecca? 

Introduce yourself to ArianeB as explained in:
How do I introduce myself? 
The dancing, kissing and necking will put Ariane in a good mood and, of more importance, add one point to the daring and topf parameters.

Go to another room.
Go for a walk.
Follow her to the park.
Take the other swing.
Finish swinging.

Climb on top and hang upside.
Ask her to show you her gymnastic skills.
Tell her she is doing well. To demonstrate her gymnastic skills Ariane strips to her underwear.

I don’t mind at all.
Wow! That is pretty good.
Applaud.
Follow her back to her place. The daring parameter has risen to two points. We still need to find a way to add another point to the topf parameter though. Let's go to the kitchen and have a genuine steak dinner:
How to have a steak dinner? 

After the meal Ariane waits in the living room. Where shall we go now? Let's keep it simple and sit down again...

Go to the living room.
Kiss her.
Stop kissing. Are you enjoying this?
Caress her breasts.
Stop fondling. Bingo! The topf parameter has just risen with one unit. Ignore Ariane's plea to go on and let's head to the strip club instead.

Go to another room.
Go for a drive.
Head towards outskirts. No need to go to the garage, the car will not fall out of gas.

Go to the Live Cabaret. You took me to a strip club? That seems a little weird for a date!
Ask her to join Amateur Night contest.
Encourage her to striptease.
Let's get started.

Remove Jacket.
Pole Dance.
Remove Skirt.

ArianeB 6.45

Entry 1709 posted in: a. ArianeB


NEW: THE ARIANEB WALKTHROUGHS have now got their own domain:
http://arianeb.atagong.com


In a previous post we more or less predicted that an Ariane Dating Simulator update was in the pipeline but that it would be finished 8 days after the previous version is something of a record. On Saturday, the 24th of July 2010, ArianeB was updated to version 6.45.

As usual we will largely quote from the Ariane Brodie (or should that be Ariane Barnes?) blog. Like this:

A running theme in Dating Ariane simulator is that Ariane is a modern feminist who is not delicate or submissive. She does only what she wants to do. If it gives her pleasure, she will do it. If it gives others pleasure, she may do it if she is assured a mutual exchange. …or really drunk.

One of the things that I like about ArianeB is indeed that she has her own little will, although that is, of course, Javascript driven, this to contradict the rumours amongst my friends that I am fabling to be really in love with her. Its many parameters make the game less linear than you think, although there are still some logical steps to follow.

The Rebecca Tapes

One of the lesser fragments in the story, according to its maker, were the Rebecca encounters, an old schoolmate of Ariane. You will meet her by going to the lingerie store and by winning the lingerie mini game that goes with it: How to go to the lingerie store?. As they both haven't seen each other for the last couple of years the decent thing to do is to invite her for a drink, that will take place at the local bar, but if you have already visited that Rebecca will propose an alternative club.

There is indeed something of an inconsistency in the story. Although it is hinted that Rebecca is female oriented and will try to make a pass at Ariane she will not hesitate to jump in the bed with the male player. Ariane however stays in character and refuses a ménage-à-trois. What happens next between Rebecca and the player is left to the imagination. Probably not much as it was Rebecca's first aim to entangle Ariane in her web en passant by you: How to end up in bed with Rebecca? 

Note 1: There are some fan-written add-ons for ArianeB that have explored a threesome scenario but these are not really in line with the characters. (Nitpickers would say those story-lines are non-canon.)
Note 2: Under certain circumstances Ariane kicks the male player out: Rebecca is more fun than you are. I'm going to hang with her instead. The result is of course undocumented, as such. How to have a hamburger, some culture but no pussy? 

ArianeB 6.4 added three extra scenarios with Rebecca excelling in her role as general pain in the arse. In all three of them she will get you (the male player) kicked out of the house and stay alone with her object of lust. You can try these out here:

The Rebecca Tapes: Getting ready for the pillow fight (introduction)
The Rebecca Tapes: How to steal Rebecca's clothes? 
The Rebecca Tapes: How to spoil an ongoing anatomy lesson? 
The Rebecca Tapes: How to get the cake in the oven? 

ArianeB 6.45 contains, next to the obvious bug-fixes that will invariably lead to new bugs, a fine-tuning of the strip club scenario, more in line with Ariane's character and her romantic evolution towards the male player in the game.

In all previous versions visiting the strip club would lead to a raunchy end scene. This scene has now been deleted, unless the proper parameters have been triggered before going to the club. This is discussed more in details in our updated walkthrough: How to go to the stripclub without Rebecca? (for version 6.45).

A second strip club scenario, where Rebecca and Ariane both compete in the amateur night contest, has now got an extra ending. Ariane, a modern feminist who is not delicate or submissive, has got no problem stripping in the club before a bunch of strangers and her date, but - at home - she would at least like to see the favour returned.

It all cumulates in a funny scenario (generally 6.4 and 6.45 have both added a lot of humour into the game) that uses trigonometry functions to make a swirling webpage effect. It is not often one can say Javascript uses sexy moves.

ang = ang + Math.PI/10;
lft = Math.round(Math.cos(ang) * 50) - 100;
upd = Math.round(Math.abs(Math.sin(ang) * 30)) - 100;

All's well that ends well and for once it is Ariane who sends Rebecca away to have some quality time with her lover. Consult the 4.65 walkthrough at: How to go to the strip club with Rebecca? 

And with that positive note this post comes to an end.
