    Welcome back everyone to the next edition of the RSTL Magazine. This week we had a lot of the older writers in matchups. Granted, most of them no showed but nonetheless we had some good showings by everyone in the league. Also around the league, GL seemed to take his hatin’ to a new level, Nom fears Shadow, Nique got beat by Google Chrome and Atreyu never votes.

    2. Recap


    The week we had quite a few no shows, which is likely due to the New Year and people being drunk. Here is a breakdown of everyone’s verses, starting with the no shows.

    Narsil – This verse was very good and had a good poetic vibe to it. I enjoyed this story for the emotion you had in it. Although, some words were not worded correctly, bleeding and bleed. Still this verse was short and enjoyable and giving this was a no show, I hope to see more detail from you in the future. Nice done.

    Dicnyaeye – This was an enjoyable no show verse. It didn’t seem like you tried because you knew Memento would no show, which is good I guess. Everything flowed nicely and had good rhymes and vocab. I thought the verse was funny though. I’m not sure if it was suppose to be or not but still enjoyable.

    Atreyu – You always seem to write nice verses that have a good flow and good rhymes. You just never seem to vote which is an utter disappointment. The imagery was good as well, nice verse.

    Vern Acular – This was an amazing verse here and the audio was performed very well. The beat was pretty good, I thought that some things could’ve been made louder, with the beat but it was still performed very well. The rhymes were very good and the story was very good and had a nice emotional vibe to it. The flow was very good and everything seemed to come together rather nicely. This was definitely an enjoyable piece.

    Mordrid vs. WarMachine – This match up was predicted to be pretty even showing by both. They both were coming off of nice wins and were seeking to continue their winning ways. MD’s verse was a nice, short verse that was filled with spelling errors that hurt his verse. The flow and imagery were good but the story seemed under-developed. War wrote to his story very well and although short, wrote with good rhymes and development that gave the readers a little more substance to their read. That being said….

    Stacy vs. oNeiRiC – This was an interesting match. Both writers took the simple approach to their verses and decide to remove detail from their verses. Both verses were nice, quick reads but the readers felt that they could be a bit more descriptive. That being said, the readers felt that Stacey had a more enjoyable verse then oNe and pickets up the 5 – 0 shutout win.

    Pent uP vs. Nique – This match up was the match-up of the week. Pent uP wrote a very well developed story with great mechanics. This was one of the best verses I’ve seen from him. Nique, however, had most of her verse deleted by webpage malfunction. The part of her verse was she had posted had all of the goods that we’re accustomed to seeing from her. However, since the verse wasn’t completed, it was hard for her to beat someone like Pent. This allowed Pent to pick up the win and is the New RSTL Champion. Congratulations to [kat][kat][kat]Pent uP[kat][kat][kat]

    3. Battle of the Week

    Pent uP

    The ascension rate of my attention made
    me investigate sexy mesh, flesh and taint.
    Sittin wet, internet spreads displayed
    before headin to bed for days of my seventh grade.
    When the daze of legs and face set astray
    I settled. Laying in a zen-like state
    and queued in chatrooms before I'd press esc -
    Which is where I found sex text for trade.

    I've never sprayed from readin porno scripts.
    Just fathomed random madams' gorgeousness;
    imagined with lathered tattered corsets ripped.
    A pleasure fiends means to forward bliss
    while awaiting the day when he became fortunate.
    I can't believe AOL is how this story stems...
    A glorious ornament of words to read
    turned paragraphs to years of eternity...

    Currently, we're more than a decade invested.
    We've changed our directions, made and dissected
    a range of eclectic constraints and connections
    complaints and contentions, traded our ethics
    and came to the menace of facing rejection
    in ways unrepentant of the shameless and selfish.
    We've taken a breath, which escalated the tension.
    We'd think to rekindle and she'd faint in my presence.

    Strange is the essence - Lost in our futile needs.
    We've met only once from a dozen opportunities -
    copped me a prudent feel, but its not that important.
    Nervous thoughts of performance and caution were thwarted.
    Problems were forming when the plausible warrants -
    barriers that buried her locked in some fortress...
    brought metaphoric to a tangible grasp
    that shackled her fast before I planned an attack.

    Panic would flash, and I'd cave with contempt.
    At first that'd hurt but then I'd exhale all my breath;
    realizing she'd find him saving herself.
    Safely breaking, I stepped, careless of quests,
    hair's on an edge crossing the barrier nexus.
    I expected a slightly better and merrier temptress.
    When clarity exits and I'm not sharing her presence
    my mind's hindsight seems barely impressive.

    Bare from inception - more than decades invested.
    We've changed our directions, made and dissected
    a range of eclectic constraints and connections
    complaints and contentions, traded our centrics
    and came to the menace of facing rejection
    in ways unrepentant of the shameless and selfish.
    We've taken a breath, which escalated the tension.
    We'd think to rekindle but they hated my essence.

    I pray on a death wish - Strength is eluding me.
    We met once again from another opportunity -
    Caught me infused with glee, but its not that important
    if she dropped on the floor and sobbed till the morning.
    She's lost in the war and the distance between.
    She favors staying faithful but insists that we cheat..
    Blessin' the words heaven on earth is a visit from me,
    but her better half thinks I'm an affliction to peace.

    I'm thinkin they need to reconsider their dreams
    but instead I stray away and let our differences be.
    A minuscule thing - I'm hoping he loves her
    because a war with me and they wont cope with each other.
    From my opening blunder of thinking of having something
    to the magic fun and then to my battle struggling
    in an emotive war for scattered lovin..
    Until their issues cause her enrapture done with...

    a collapsing judgment over decades invested.
    Where change is the message; favors were weapons;
    A range of eclectic constraints and connections
    complaints and contentions had traded our centrics
    and brang us the menace of facing rejection.
    Shameless and selfish we've waited forever
    before taking a breath, which escalated the tension.
    We'd think to rekindle but failed in the nexus.​

    Vs.

    Nique

    Your aggression unfolds,
    Confessions are told, you perish, affecting your growth
    Unpleasant, you chose to re-connect with your folks..
    But letting it go is wretched, infecting your soul.
    Where treacherous bodes well to the negligent foe,
    And imperfection excels on a desolate road.
    You set precedent, hope with an impression to cope..
    Where stress is the rope, tests surround your neck and your throat.
    Misdirected you choke; Unresolved lessons revoked,
    Electing to loathe benevolence, a reckless approach.

    Segmented coke feeds my willing to die,
    Instilled in my eyes fearlessness drives my feelings inside.
    Shielding my pride, shriveling vibes, I'm kneeling to cry..
    The ceiling is high in a building where sentiments thrive,
    I'm descending, deprived and it's disguised in the matter..
    Despising the laughter, but I admire disaster.
    The fire, the rapture is plastered in signs you will capture,
    Designed to keep you binded - the mind of a bastard.
    It's a crime that my stature loves the abuse,
    Accustomed to blues with clues that doesn't refute..
    Nor does it excuse the miscues in my youth,
    But I refuse to renew a life I once knew.​

    ::
    (BRIDGE)
    Where you at when I need you...
    I need you...to lead me to teach me to do a way with evil
    im on my knees praying peaceful...
    believing you are here even though i cant hear you or see you...

    repeat


    I gotta leave the past behind me…and I aint never going back
    I cant help it but right now im crying on the tract
    Get some tissue…im drowing as im lying on my back
    In my own tears…an issue…I’ve been dying it’s a fact
    So revive me dont attack….god where were you at…
    When I needed you…I aint go to the beach …so I could see the view
    See I believed in you but let this society…get inside of me
    With so much anxiety what would jesus do
    Its sort of sad that they exploiting religion
    But lets be honest…when I heard that little voice in the kitchen
    It wasn’t god but the devil…I avoided opinions
    And let a chick come destroy my intentions…I couldn’t help it
    I was trapped in…hand cuffed…and I couldn’t ask if
    He would let me back in I was ashamed of my actions
    So I changed…down to everything including my accent
    Then it happened…I looked in the mirror and got my ass kicked


    (HOOK)
    This is how it is when you run away
    From the everyday problems im gonna say
    You aint gotta give up there’s another way
    Be strong…don’t be another one afraid
    There’s somebody out there…to help you through it
    Just have faith…you know I gotta sing to it
    This is me…and now you gottta see
    That im putting everything…all in the love for this music
    It’s my life



    So as soon as I finished getting scrutinized
    By this little dude inside the mirror…I promised to let em lose this time
    It polluted my diluted mind I knew that I
    Was getting interviewed by god…swimming in a pool of lies
    Eulogy was drowning, and I found that I could do or die
    Looking in the mirror still thinking that I should choose a side
    What am I gon do with pride…I was thinking suicide
    Its true that I was clumsy but didn’t know I would lose my mind
    Who can I become now…the mirror had a badge
    And it told me to put the gun down I shattered it but what now
    But I was thinking what if, and what if this one frown
    Would just get me up quick to one cliff to jump down
    Enough ground, cause even...I need to fly…see it’s my
    Intention when I ask him to listen…I hope that he replies
    I had to see the sky …and I just before I spreaded my wings
    I heard that voice again it told me that I need to try


    (HOOK)


    I tried and tried…but couldn’t cause I died inside
    My oh my it’s funny how that time just flies
    I gave you 4 years of me and you cried me dry
    And it’s a shame that I didn’t see your lies as signs
    My eyes were blind…and me im more mad at myself
    I didn’t let you go before it impacted my health
    don’t you remember how the happiness felt…I wasn’t there for you
    Said I didn’t care for you…that was a belt
    That hit me hard in the back like a whip to a slave
    It’s like you tied me to the bed just to spit in my face
    What? Are you kidding me I didn’t behave
    Im in the deep end about to take a dip in the grave
    And now you sleeping…with another man and it’s crazy
    But it’s weird tough…you need to understand that you saved me
    all the panic you gave me…really stressed me out
    It let me doubt myself…over the path of a lady
    That was my baby…now im never thinking about her
    Every memory is sitting in the sink or the shower
    Even though you took time from me eating my hours
    You will never take my faith self esteem or my power

    5. Matchups


    CHAMPIONSHIP
    C. Pent uP 8-0
    2. MordridDeschain 5-2

    Prediction – Both of these writers are coming off of nice victories. Pent has captured the RSTL title and is looking to keep his title for weeks to come. MD wants to become the champ but I believe the Pent will win, 4-0

    CONTENDERSHIP
    3. Dicnyaeye 3-0
    4. -Atreyu- 2-0

    Prediction – Atreyu proven he will not vote on any match for some reason. The problem is, Dic is an excellent writer and in order to defeat him, Atreyu will need to fire on all cylinders and also vote. I don’t believe Atreyu will do enough to pull out the victory here. Dic wins 4-0.

    5. Narsil 2-0
    6. ShadowWarriorfs 19-15

    Predictions – This will be an interesting match-up because Narsil has been climbing the rankings nicely and is looking to defeat Shadow and climb intot he contenders match next week. I think this will be a hard fought battle but Narsil should end up on top 3-1.

    7. Stacey James 1-1
    8. Vern Acular 1-0

    Prediction – I believe that this will be a one sided match up and that isn’t a knock on Stacey. Vern is just an excellent writer and has proven this in the past week. I think Vern will win 4-0.

    9. Redeemed 4-1
    10. WarMachine 2-1

    Prediction – I think War signed out in his battle thread last week, not the actual sign out thread so I don’t know if he’ll show up or not. Redeemed is a previous champ and is looking to upset War. However, if War shows up, he’ll win, 4-0.

    11. oNeiRiC 3-8
    12. HOLLOW SHELLS 0-0

    Prediction – I believe oNe will win because Hollow will no show.

    13. Kryptikal 0-0
    14. LiQuiDliFe 0-0

    Prediction – Both writers will no show but if they both show, I think LiQuiDliFe will win, mainly because his name sound cooler.

    10. Grinds My Gears – You know what really grinds my gears, waking up to the noise of something irritating. I mean I can understand that people have jobs to do but are there any reason to be standing outside someone’s door using a leaf blower? Now, I know what you’re going to say, ‘people need to work’ but why at 6am? Why not at 10am or a more suitable time like this? Also, if you enjoy your sleep, do not have children. Not only do they try their hardest to make you miserable when it comes to getting your rest, but they do it at weird times at night. I can get over it if they are sick but spending your time trying to wiggle out of your blankets then whining when you are successful because you want to be wrapped is just retarded. It’s 5am right now and I am cranky so I bit you guys goodnight and I hope you get run over by a bus full of handicap children. That, RSTL writers, is what really grinds my gears.



    11. Conclusion – This was a good week and although I wasn’t happy about all the no shows, I’m pleased with the people who did show up. I hope we have a better turn out this week now that the holidays are finished. I want to encourage everyone to continue to vote and to keep up on that swag. Remember that this league runs on votes and we need everyone’s participation if we want to improve as writers. Good luck to everyone this week on their match ups.

    Vern definitely had a better verse than dic and nique.

    I suggest you try a different route than this polling system you've put in place.

    no it's because no one read his verse and people don't vote properly.

    if you genuinely think your 16 bars was better than vern's verse than you're really fucking delusional.
