Website News:

Division News:

None of the BoMB Players seem to be too enthused about a Team Fortress 2 division, except for Quimby, Charlie, and Black Sniper, so it doesn't look like a TF2 division will become a reality, at least in the near future. Sorry.

Creation News:

      Charlie has begun work on a new flash movie called Unhackable!

      The flash movie will be completed through the new website Strayform, and will allow people to correspond directly with Charlie as he creates the movie, pledging money to accomplish things such as: having their myspace name mentioned in the video, being mentioned in the credits as an "executive producer," etc.

      The song 'Unhackable' is a Bob Ricci (http://www.bobricci.com) spoof of the Christina Aguilera song 'Beautiful,' and is about having the unhackable computer, and about being better than all the n00bs around you with spyware on their computers! So if you either love or hate Christina or Bob Ricci, you'll probably love this video.

      This video is sure to be a crowd pleaser! Go check out the page by clicking on the image to the right! And if you feel so inclined, you can donate some money to help make this flash movie better than ever!

Employment News:

      Neither Charlie nor his wife, Black Sniper work for Meridian Web Design any longer, though Charlie still continues to perform independent contract work for them on a part-time, as-needed basis.
      Charlie now stays at home and operates Reaper Charlie Design, and his beautiful wife, Black Sniper works for a small dance studio in Vacaville, CA, called the J&S Center for the Performing Arts.

Website News:

The BoMB Forums have been revamped! There had been a problem with spambots and inappropriate messages run amok, but that has all been cleaned out, and the offending users deleted. Now it is much harder for spam bots to enter the forums thanks to new 'Captcha' GDzip Technology!
• The Divisions Page (and correspondingly, all member images) have been updated to include Unreal Tournament 3 instead of Unreal Tournament 2004.

Division News:

A Team Fortress 2 division is in the works... Stay tuned...

-The Guy with the Scythe
 


Employment News:

      Charlie now works for a company called Meridian Web Design, as does his beautiful wife, Black Sniper. This is a small website design company located in San Ramon, CA. San Ramon is also the home of a pretty deece skate park, I am hearing over the news. Well that is, the news of my brain.

Website News:

• The Divisions Page (and correspondingly, all member images) have been updated to include Halo 3 instead of Halo 2, and Starcraft 2 instead of Starcraft.

Division News:

      Following the release of the highly-anticipated Orange Box last week, it has been proposed that the Band of Maniacal Brothers close the World of Warcraft Division, and open a Team Fortress 2 Division. Whether this move will be met with cheers or jeers remains to be seen, but such a bold move is sure to be met both with rabid praise and a cacophony of whining.

Fare thee well...

Website Project News:

     The Band of Maniacal Brothers are proud to present: ...

Nebulous Firefight - www.nebulousfirefight.com
Nebulous Firefight is a chronicling of the many tales of Daniel Turner, from the least to the greatest, from the radically redundant to the ragingly ridiculous, from the bold and brash to the beautiful and brilliantly brutal.

Complex Metropolis - www.complexmetropolis.com
Complex Metropolis is the dark region where Joe Weaver will showcase his works of fiction and fact, of fidelity and falsehood, and of penetrating perseverence in the face of all odds. A compilation of monstrous proportions.

Reaper Charlie vs Quimby - www.rcvq.com
Reaper Charlie vs Quimby is the magnificent tale of the legendary face/off between the two great powers in the world, Quimby Mugatufagatala, defender of the free world, and Reaper Charlie, part-time terrorist extraordinaire.

These domains are under construction and will soon be released to the public!

Peace out.
- Charlie

 


Site News:

     The Band of Maniacal Brothers have a new item in the Store! It's the Old School 'BoMB' Shirt! This shirt will be available in white or black, and in all standard sizes, just like most of our apparel. Take advantage of the store and get some cool gear (for cheap) while you can! However, shipping is regrettably limited to the contiguous 48 states of the USA currently. But we will work on our ability to ship to other areas of the world, and soon, our world domination will be complete!

LAN News:

     The Band of Maniacal Brothers had another successful LAN event this December, hosted by BMB_Stinger and Yaeger Dental Supply!

     Venom came out on top, with LvlCapBlue coming second, Scream coming third, and with Quimby and Charlie tying for fourth. We had a number of new players at this LAN, and for the first time we had a few sponsors, and small mini-competitions featuring prizes like a new computer motherboard, a lighted tower case, or 12-15 inch neons for your rig. The l337ness was abundant, and aside from some BF2/JK2 patching issues, the event went off without a hitch for the most part. Thanks again to Yaeger Dental Supply for hosting the event, and to BMB_Stinger for putting the entire thing together!

CAL News:

     The Band of Maniacal Brothers, at long last, have registered a CAL Counter-Strike team. For more info, and for the active and reserve rosters, please hit up this link over at the CAL site:

Peace out, and have a Happy New Year!
