Title: Say anything!
Post by: Felblood on October 24, 2010, 09:28:01 PM
Dead air is the enemy.

It doesn't matter if it's stupid or insightful, reasoned or non-sequitur just say something.

I figure that going to school is optional.
I could, if I wanted to, get my GED and proceed to attempt some fail business... such as selling tin cans on the side of the road in order to make a small, respectable fortune.
Problem is, my goat would probably eat all of these.
So, what I really need to do, is sell the goat and buy a lottery ticket.

Or, I could get some sleep.
That could help, too.

Also, my mom's 80's pop music sounds like attack of the Felmo --- Furbie/Elmo.

Hahahaha. XD

This (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kWBs-b7Rx6s) is pretty close to the song I heard.
(The other one was kinda early-techno and it really intensified the Felmo... but I didn't find that one anywhere on the Internet. You'd think that people wanted to pretend that it never existed, or something. :P )
The beginning is all you need to hear to understand, I think. XD

Sad thing is, the basic music is actually pretty decent... it's just those occasional moments when I kinda feel like throttling the singer... or driving a wooden stake through it's heart/pushing it into sunlight. I'm not really sure.  :o

Anyway... have fun with that. :P

So I was looking up snail graffiti (http://www.metro.co.uk/news/156464-graffiti-snails-roaming-london) (which is pretty cool) and I found...

This. (http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_WGjMkABo-O4/SrEpkwhVmKI/AAAAAAAAAH8/DNybvZTbYl8/s1600-h/liam+with+giant+snail+milpe0001.JPG)

That snail is INSANE.

And I thought that the snails we found under our bathtub the other day were big enough... :P
Apparently, they are African land snails, the biggest snail in the world. The largest one on record was 15.5" in length and weighed 2 lbs.
Title: Re: Say anything!
Post by: Felblood on November 11, 2010, 04:09:17 AM
Thanks for that.

I saw a horror movie about slugs when I was a kid, and now I can't eat lettuce or cabbage with any sort of enthusiasm.
Title: Re: Say anything!
Post by: Faith on November 11, 2010, 06:29:05 PM
Bwahahaha!!! XD

Yeah...
Don't worry. you won't find them around here. >.>

It was actually pretty sad. My friend and I are in Advanced Art, where we can do pretty much whatever we want to do and call it art (that class is pretty awesome :P ).
We were going to order African snails (which would've been paid for by the school budget as they would be a "canvas"), paint them glow-in-the dark and keep them in the class room. The teacher was all for it. But I was looking into it and it turns out that they're illegal in the U.S.
Something about being an invasive pest. :P
But we might use panda snails, which are a bit larger than a tennis ball. :)
Or maybe a horde of tiny snails.
;D
Title: Re: Say anything!
Post by: Felblood on November 20, 2010, 07:51:18 AM
No hordes of anything slimy! None! No!

Curse you creeping things of the Earth, my multitudinous weaknesses.
Title: Re: Say anything!
Post by: Faith on November 22, 2010, 02:55:21 PM
Hahaha... XD

We were thinking that a great senior prank would be to paint a horde of tiny snails and release them into the school. :P

I am also thinking of looking to a black market snail dealer and getting my African snails, anyway. XP
Title: Re: Say anything!
Post by: Felblood on November 26, 2010, 02:28:29 PM
No.

You will not import any sort of invasive wildlife into this country.

I'll turn you in, and see to the destruction of the specimens personally. I am not kidding.

Invasive imported animals are a very serious problem, and you don't need to make it any worse.
Title: Re: Say anything!
Post by: Faith on November 26, 2010, 02:53:08 PM
Hahaha, relax. I'm not going to actually do it. XP
It's just too much fun to say I'm going to the "black market snail dealer." ;D
I largely avoid illegal activity, I assure you.

But yeah.
I'm still left finding a solution to our dilemma... XD
Title: Re: Say anything!

Paint a turtle.
Title: Re: Say anything!
Post by: Faith on November 29, 2010, 01:23:45 AM
Hahaha... that could be fun, also.
I'll have to mention it to my friend. :P

But I don't know that it will have quite the same impact... XD

Nah, nah.
I think I've mostly given up on the snail idea. If my friend is still after it, sure, but I only really have so much of my Art class left...
This is my last semester!
After this, no more Art with my crazy awesome HS art teacher...
*Sad story...*

Ah, well.
I hope that whatever college I go to has another cool art teacher... XP
Title: Re: Say anything!
Post by: Dragyn on November 29, 2010, 10:29:52 AM
Well, I only ever had the one college level art instructor.  He was pretty crazy, but in a good way.

okay, MOSTLY a good way.
Title: Re: Say anything!
Post by: Felblood on November 29, 2010, 02:21:55 PM
I had two different art teachers in college.

The first one I had to drop almost immediately; I simply could not tolerate that man and his idiotic babbling.

My drawing class instructor was much better, and I really enjoyed her class. I learned a lot there, but it was kind of a weird group. See, it was an evening course, so most of my classmates were middle aged women with jobs and families, so I felt kind of out of place.
Title: Re: Say anything!
Post by: Faith on November 29, 2010, 07:00:45 PM
Heh...

I'm not sure if that's all entirely reassuring... XD :P
Especially when my art teacher is so awesome now. >.>

Hm... yeah, I could see that.
But hey, sometimes middle aged people make better friends than peers do. Especially when they're not so desperately needing to get over themselves and don't try so hard to be cool, having realized that it really doesn't matter or affect the grand scheme of things. XD
*Has peers who should look into this...* XP

Ah, well. I'll look into those. :)

...

But...
Hey...
How do you avoid the naked people...? >.>
Can I just not show up that day...? '=D
Title: Re: Say anything!
Post by: Dragyn on November 29, 2010, 10:43:29 PM
Unless you plan on majoring in art, it's not really that hard to just avoid the classes that have nude models.  In my case, I just emailed the teacher beforehand, to verify, and all was well.

If any of the classes I took did have that, I'd have just dropped the class, and taken something else.
Title: Re: Say anything!
Post by: Faith on November 30, 2010, 12:29:22 AM
But I do sort of want to look into art while I'm in college.
Maybe not majoring in it, but...
Honestly, I can't imagine school without art. It would drive me crazy.

Ah, well.
Maybe I could just talk to the teachers about it beforehand... I'm sure I could do some independent study of form without involving nudity...
Ya' know... if the teacher would let me.
Title: Re: Say anything!
Post by: Dragyn on November 30, 2010, 03:42:53 PM
Eh.  I dunno'.

Random question:  As far as spelling goes, which is better; Radick, or Radek?
Title: Re: Say anything!
Post by: Felblood on December 01, 2010, 11:45:39 AM
The spelling with the "e" for some reason hardens the "a".

Rad-ick becomes Ray-deck, for some reason.
Title: Re: Say anything!
Post by: Dragyn on December 02, 2010, 11:05:33 AM
Hmm...that's true.

New but related question:  One D, or 2?  Radick, or Raddick?
Title: Re: Say anything!
Post by: Felblood on December 02, 2010, 03:24:05 PM
Two has a more universally clear pronunciation, while just one leaves ambiguity.

That may be the price for mitigating the already substantial innuendo potential.
Title: Re: Say anything!
Post by: Dragyn on December 02, 2010, 04:42:56 PM
There's that, yes.

Also, Radick is a somewhat common name, and Raddick is, as near as I've managed to discern, never used at all.
Title: Re: Say anything!
Post by: Faith on December 03, 2010, 03:57:37 PM
I prefer the old spelling, "Raddick."
I like the the name that way, best. I don't believe there's any need for changing it. :)

Mwahahaha...
We had two snow days in a row, right before the weekend, and I didn't have to take my tests... XD
I liked that quite a bit, seeing as I didn't study very well for those tests. :P

*Snrk!*

Well, smell can be amended to by bathing... XP
And besides...
You've hit a rough patch, that's different.
You've had decent work before, and I'm sure you will again. Just gotta' stick with it.

To top, I know people who didn't have much schooling, hardly getting through HS, and they lead good lives these days.
At the same time, I know other people that an education never did that for.
It kinda depends on the time and place and, most importantly, how you handle it...

But an education is definitely in my plans, so I have to continue on, trudging through the sludge of the modern schooling system... >.>
:P

It ain't bad, really, I like learning and all, but it sure kicks the whole idea of a life outside of school while you're stuck in the middle of it. XP
Title: Re: Say anything!
Post by: Dragyn on December 06, 2010, 10:22:06 AM
Hmm...

The modern system is weird, I admit.  I think there's probably something we could do that would be better, but I'm not really in any position to say what.
Title: Re: Say anything!
Post by: Faith on December 06, 2010, 10:47:38 PM
Well, the apparent idea of HS is to set you up for the worst job you could possibly have... and think it's as good as anything ever was... XP

I mean, seriously... 40 hr work weeks, including the time spent in school, and then add a few more hours outside of school for homework and assignments... with no pay.
A LOT of paperwork and book stuffs.
The work they give you usually isn't that interesting or enjoyable, in the first place.
Top it all off with heaps of social issues, excessive levels of idiocy and some dumb teen drama...
... ... ...
That's just not too wonderful. :P

But nah, I guess it's really not so bad...
I just gotta' buck up and finish and enjoy this last year. XD
Title: Re: Say anything!

Yeah, pretty much.  It may not be an ideal situation, but it's only as good as you make it.

Does anyone know why my shift keys just won't work with a few of the other keys? For some of them, I just have to use the shift from the opposite side of the keyboard to get a capitol letter. Otherwise, it just won't show up. Every time I use the upper case "I" it is through caps lock. Also, for some symbols, there just isn't any easy way to make them. Nor can I use the space bar while the shift is pressed. O.o
Any suggestions? XP
Title: Re: Say anything!

Yeah.  I've already told Xepher he can redirect/take out the old site whenever.  He said he'll do it when he gets around to it, so it'll probably be there until next year, I'd guess.

And the reason I actually disappeared, was due to holidays and many plushie commissions. I have a loooot, to catch up on, because of holiday hiatus. HURGH. I'm slowly getting there, though.

Title: Re: Say anything!
Post by: Felblood on January 20, 2011, 11:43:33 PM
I won't be making outgoing calls.

When you call up to activate your credit card, I'm the guy who asks you for your mother's maiden name, asks if you want any other people's names attached to the account, and then tries to sell you an identity theft protection service (--which I get free for the next year. Yoink!).

I can also get calls from customers with questions or wanting their account settings changed, but mostly I just activate your card and work my way through the cross sell scripts before I can hit confirm.

Even though I'm not calling people, I have to be registered as a telemarketer in several states to work at a call center. It helps other call centers not hire me if I do something unethical here.


This is the sole opinion of the poster and in no way represents the interests or opinions of his employer or any other person or group.


That isn't the verbatim disclaimer, but they gave it to me inside a secured area, where we're not allowed to take any paper out (to help protect account numbers and such.)

When you work with people's credit card information, there is a lot of tracking and security, so they have a short list of suspects if something get's stolen or misused. For example, I have to password lock my workstation whenever I go on break. It actually makes the gravity of working in the finance industry very real, as you have a real sense of how much damage the stuff you work with could do in the wrong hands.

You can expect to see this disclaimer a lot, if I have to talk about my job, even though it is actually a nice place to work, and seems to be overall pretty ethical, compared to what I though of when they first made me fill out that registration.

No, not the guy who paid in Atari points.  I've done 2 commission things at this point.  I got paid in cash (by payPal) for one, and the other guy gave me Atari Points.

Still, the guy who paid in Atari Points paid with the equivalent of $25.  Apparently people value my art higher than I'd've thought.
Title: Re: Say anything!
Post by: Faith on February 08, 2011, 12:28:04 AM
Heh.

It's probably nice to be getting paid for those things, all the same. :)
Title: Re: Say anything!
Post by: Dragyn on February 08, 2011, 04:42:10 AM
Yeah.  It is.  Maybe not reliable income, but it's still nice--especially considering I didn't actually expect to get paid for the Champions one.

Post by: Madjack on February 11, 2011, 08:35:26 PM
I don't get a lot of art commissions..when I do get offered, it's usually for something...a little beyond my comfort level. I guess that's what I get, for advertising on Fur Affinity. *shivers*
Title: Re: Say anything!
Post by: Dragyn on February 12, 2011, 12:18:13 AM
Yeah.  I avoid FA.  It's creepy over there.
Title: Re: Say anything!
Post by: Faith on February 12, 2011, 04:42:51 AM
Heh. :P

I usually just make or half-make things and then they find their way to somewhere.
If it's not that good or only partially acceptable (I like a part, a concept, a style, something...), which is the majority of them, I'll usually toss it or store it where I'll hardly ever see it.
Some things... if they're good enough... I'll share or give away.
Heh.

When I was little, at elementary school, I would sell drawings for quarters, nickels and dimes. :P
But I haven't really done "commissions" since then. XP
If I get paid for something, it was because they were nice enough to do so.

The funny thing is, though, apparently I wasn't the only one selling my art in elementary school. :P
I would doodle things and give them to the vice principle, my teachers, my classmates... and just about anyone else, really.  There were a lot of drawings to go around.
I recently learned that my vice principle would have them around, for a while... and then someone who came in regularly started just... buying them from her. O.o
Who?
Who knows.
Why...?
Continues to puzzle me.
I mean... I was in elementary school. Uh... anyone who wants to get silly squiggles from a kid could just hand some children paper and writing/coloring utensils and then come back and pick up after them. Squiggles galore... for FREE.

Oh, well, I guess.
:P



Though... I've thought of commissions again, lately...
I could use some extra money... XP

Where/how do you guys suggest I try that...?
Title: Re: Say anything!
Post by: Dragyn on February 12, 2011, 12:08:38 PM
At this point, all the commissioned work I've done has been where I wasn't looking for it, so I really don't know what to suggest, there.
Title: Re: Say anything!
Post by: Madjack on February 12, 2011, 01:26:13 PM
There actually are some really nice people, on FA. Not to mention you can also upload music, too. DeviantArt is also great, especially with its Group system. I don't really browse FA, to avoid the creepy things..I mostly just upload, write a journal, and comment on stuff. It's a great community, strange fetishes aside. Still..dA is my home, and where I spend 90% of my time at.

If you want to start commissions, I highly recommend either or both. If you want to sell already-drawn art, I hear eBay and Craig's List are good, too. (though I've never done that..)
Title: Re: Say anything!
Post by: Faith on February 15, 2011, 08:55:45 PM

Not really.

DW has been coding and drawing like crazy, so he hasn't been in here much, and I've been busy with work, so I couldn't be the life of the party, like usual.

I'm actually kind of revealed to see everybody coming back after a week of eerie silences.

More coding than drawing, honestly.  Most of it's back end stuff, for the map editor, so I don't even have much to show for it.

I check in nearly every day, but I haven't had much to say.

I've got a comic that's inked, but I haven't colored it.  I'm a bit distracted of late, and haven't been able to focus enough to finish it, so I feel weird saying something when nobody else is here and I'm behind on objectives already.

Also, me getting married in less than 3 weeks contributes to the distraction, so there's that.

The smartest thing IE ever did was not acknowledge the alternative brands.

Dragyn and Faith have their own place now though, so we'll probably start using this to keep in touch.

Should probably speak up more myself.

I'd probably get more comics done if I didn't have a job...but then I wouldn't have the money to pay for my internet, so you'd never know.

Work is sucking up pretty much all of my time and enthusiasm, but I'm still managing to make progress every here and there.

So, my first kid is getting born tomorrow.

That's.... completely insane.

I mean, I'm looking forward to all the challenges and opportunities of being a father, but holy flaming blood on a dancing wagon full of elves, I do not want to mess this up.


Anyway, expect me to busier than usual for the next few weeks, even though I am taking some time off work to meet my kid, and help mom and baby get settled.

That is: Don't expect me to get any sprites done soon, let alone pop in to talk about them.

Yeah.  I already planned for that.
Good luck!

yes, time to make a custom guitar!
Title: Re: Say anything!

Oh?  What kind of guitar?  Acoustic?  Electric?  Obsidian with spikes and blades?
Title: Re: Say anything!
Post by: punk_fur on December 30, 2013, 09:38:43 AM
my friend gave me it and its electric. first i'm going to wet sand the body, then i'm going to re-paint the frets.

then add some spikes and blades.
Title: Re: Say anything!
Post by: Dragyn on January 11, 2014, 08:39:06 PM
Spikes and blades make the guitar.
Just be careful not to injure anyone, yourself included.
Title: Re: Say anything!
Post by: punk_fur on January 27, 2014, 06:20:32 AM
will do, thanks.
Title: Re: Say anything!
Post by: punk_fur on March 26, 2014, 04:24:35 AM
Well, its done. Although a completely different guitar, the end was the same. I made a guitar that looks like it's old and run down but plays like New. My friend Cody and I went many sleepless nights but basically we hand sanded paint off for wear effects, repainted the neck and what have you. After that we replaced the bridge and other objects that were broke or gone. *with all do respect the person who gave it to us didn't take very good care of it, which gave me the idea of a simple "junkman" guitar.

I plan now to make the second, (technically the first) custom guitar.



Thanks to Cody and Daniel for the help.

Are you planning to post pictures anywhere?  I'm curious what a "Junkman" guitar looks like...and sounds like, for that matter.

You?

Post by: punk_fur on April 13, 2014, 09:21:10 PM
Junkman- a term relating anything that is thrown together with parts that don't go to that item, and the fact that it looks like what's left after some one had smashed the body of the guitar.

Working on the picture.

Post by: Madjack on April 29, 2014, 04:23:15 PM
Nothing too different, unfortunately. Art, story-writing, video games. Sold a couple t-shirts though so that was nice. Maybe I'm finally getting somewhere, with art...
Title: Re: Say anything!
Post by: Dragyn on April 30, 2014, 11:21:14 PM
Hmm...that's always a good sign.  Keep at it!

...it suddenly occurs to me that, while I've frequently drawn things for people, I've never actually sold any art.  Weird.

I could eat fish, but then if I kissed my wife, it would make her sick.

I think we all know which of the two I'm giving up.

I still come by every now and then! I contemplate posting art, but eh. Seems kinda weird to come by maybe once every few months and post art, then leave again. XD

Seriously though. I missed you guys. <3

I'm currently operating entirely on solar power...which would be awesome in a desert, but I need far more panels and batteries for my climate, so I'm not on nearly as much as I would like.

Still, some power is better than no power.

Glad to see you around.

Wow, new posts!

I've been super busy moving to a new department, at work, but I always check in here at least once a month, even if it's a ghost town, in case some spambot has made my mod duties necessary.


BTW, DW: Next time you have enough power to spare, we need to vox about background music.

My steam is almost always on. Drop it a line if it says the compy is
Power supplies are on the upside at the moment, but never when you're online, Blood.

Just shoot something at me Steam account when you're on and available.

Also, yeah I forgot how much the school year has to do with how often we see people in here. It must have to do with my being away from school or seasonal work and pluggin the clock year round.

Hopefully things will pick up once people settle into enough of a routine that they have a daily trawl.
