My Oblivion Experience here (spoilers perhaps): I know how to do this.

Huh...whaa? That was the most awesome thing I have ever seen.

mmhmm that was pretty nifty. I am going to figure out how to do it

Not because I want to cheat but just because I want to see all those items fall

The movie is about more then gay cowboys. I thought the 'more than kiss'ing stuff that was filmed was well done and it did not seem like Ang Lee was attempting to shock his audience with these scenes or that they did not contribute to the story. It is a very well done film. That is why it has accomplished what it has even in a fairly Puritan society like ours. If you discount it before you have seen it thats your choice but you know what they say about judging a book by its cover.

Queen For a Day

PORTLAND, Oregon -- Emily Kays, the self-proclaimed Queen of Apirl Fool's day, guiled her way into the online world for the first time this year with a tale of deception so elaborate even politicians are turning green with envy. Lying about lying was the name of the game and the verdict is in; she got game.

Early Saturday morning in a well orchestrated, simultaneous eight-pronged attack aimed at reaching even the furthest corners of the online forum world, a single post fictitiously detailing how she fooled the internet non-fictiously fooled the gullible and the astute alike. A well oiled war machine, the story took the world wide web by storm. I got a chance to sit down with the Queen today, because I live with her, to conduct a short interview about her April Fool's Day fun.

Elissa "Flutterby" Green (EG): Well hello there Emily. Welcome to my studio.

Emily "Kaze" Kays (EK): This is our bedroom you dork.

EG: It's my studio today.

EK: Ok then. Hello Elissa, it's nice to be here.

EG: That's better. Lets get started. So your story is the real lie?

EK: Uh huh

EG: You're not a man?

EK: Nope

EG: Are you sure?

EK: Would you like to take a peak?

EG: That would be highly inappropriate.

EK: I know, that's why I suggested it.

EG: Ok... moving on, I knew people lied on the internet... I mean just look at Myspace... but lying about lying, that's a pretty crazy idea. How did you come up with it?

EK: Well Elle...hey I rhymed!..uhh, to answer your question, I hang out on a forum named The Guild Hall a lot, and there's a girl there who is very... odd, she makes us look normal, and I guess a couple of the people there started to wonder if she was who she said she was. So one of the guys used Google to follow her trail. He quickly started noticing anomalies and eventually compiled enough evidence to support the theory that she was really a he. Now he only posted this evidence a couple weeks ago. I had to delete it all, you know, do the right thing as a mod and protect people's privacy and all that jazz... but it did give me a brilliant idea. See, this girl was kind of me. Well, she said she was a lesbian. And she played Guild Wars. Other than that I guess she wasn't like me. But still, with April Fool's Day coming up so soon I quickly put two and two together, and realized that I should assume the role of an internet imposter.

EG: Very crafty. Your story was pretty detailed, very believable. How'd you flesh out the details?

EK: I just tried to imagine what it would be like if I were really a super lonely guy, then I threw in a social stigma or two for good measure. I also sort of drew from my real experiences online, then twisted them a bit. Like, when I claimed I found a stash of pictures and the means to sound like a girl, that was really when I met my lovely partner, and she got me obsessed with photography and helped me realize that I am beautiful. Also, when I bought a microphone because my Guild Wars guild kept whining about me not having one. Or like the part about hacking, I never really cheated in any game because I do have skills! You know, like numchuck skills, bow hunting skills, computer hacking skills. Girls only want girlfriends who have great skills.

EG: You're skilled enough for me Emilybee! See I can rhyme too!

EK: Why thank you, but seriously, there were a pair of times when I was accused of hacking, by people that mattered to me, so I did use my words to help show them that I wasn't a dirty cheater. Of course I didn't need thesaurus dot com for that. I'm that emazing!

EG: Mmm, very emazing...

EK: Slow down there buttafly, we have an interview to finish.

EG: I ran outta questions so we're good.

EK: Already? That took like two minutes.

EG: Sorry?

EK: Dude, I'm sorry too, you're not a very good journalist.

EG: We all have our weaknesses. Is there anything you'd like to add?

EK: Yes. I'm going to be doing a Woe is me part II that will detail the story of the real imposter. It is Very entertaining, some of the quotes from this guy seriously make me laugh out loud, so you will definitely not want to miss it. Like, if I were really made up, this guy would still be funnier because his story is so outrageous you'll wonder how he thought he was fooling anyone at all. Of course I'll have to change his personal info because even though he probably needs to seek psychiatric help, I'd feel bad if he got spammed with e-mails and stuff by people making fun of him because I posted about him on a bunch of forums. But, it's going to be fun times, I promise.

EG: Sounds groovy! I'd like to thank you for taking the time to sit down with me, I know you're a busy person.

EK: Busy? I've been sitting around all afternoon playing Oblivion, and eating food, you know that. I didn't even get dressed when I rolled out of bed this morning.

EG: True. I just wanted to wrap this up all official like.

EK: Well then yes, I'm very busy. Now if you'll excuse me I have some umm.. press conferences to attend. Yeah, that's it!

EG: That's more like it. Thanks again.

EK: Thanks for having me.

And that concludes my interview with Queen herself. Long known for her inventive and ambitious Apirl Fool's Day jokes, she has certainly set the bar high for herself in this freshmen attempt at a joke played out in the online arena. Until next year kids please remember to look both ways and hold skepticism's hand before crossing the street on April Fool's Day.

Thanks to my Emily for helping me put the polish on the non-interview part of this. I would have been an even less believable journalist without some help.
