Okay, I'm hoping for a little serious discussion, using the forum as a means to keep record of every little detail we can muster. I've been spouting for months how I want to know the secret of how Japanese manga and anime can have such intense stories, or even how the mediocre stories somehow put our western work to shame. It's been discussed that a lot of it has to do with their attention to culture...that they have an almost hierarchical ritual approach to so many aspects of their heritage, the writing and drawing skills are 'handed down.' Maybe not father to son, but master to apprentice. Sensei...

Going to try for a single thread for quick thoughts that, at the time of thinking, seem really deep and profound. May not be upon reflection, but there is a button to delete posts... Oh, and many of these are just plain stupid, but I could see them as little meme posters on facebook, so I figure I'll beat them to it.

So, one from the other day: If looking at the sun through binoculars will make you go blind, would your eyesight get better if you turned the binoculars around?

AND... The civil war was a really fucked up thing we did to ourselves.

Oh yes, a centralized place for some of my Evil or Very Mad . What am I bitching about now? Playstation 3 updates... again. I just spent some time painting a tiny little picture, or at least I started the details on it. I needed a break, and some Netflix seemed like just the thing! Fire up the Netflix... there is a software update required to sign in. Please exit and update your system software. I just wanted to watch a frickin show!!! Now here's 10-20 minutes wasted...

So, fire up the update. Skim through...

I was putting this under Sooth's topic of Time, but this is so far off from his point that it would just be silly. As a warning, this will be long, with much narrative of my thoughts. But if you read and absorb, this may blow your mind as much as mine...

Things are clicking into place in my head lately, again. Between books, movies, and reality. The latest, most profound WTF involves Time. I had asked Sooth if he'd yet seen the trailer for the new Bruce Willis movie, 'Looper', and he watched it, following up with a time loop question email that pretty much killed the movie... much like...

Due to the swell workings of my PS3 games list, I have decided to do the same thing with Android Apps I would like to purchase full versions of. I will list the app and it's cost on Google Play. This is more for my memory than actual wish listing.

Boom Goggles Premium $2.99
Caustic 2 $7.99
FreeNote+ $5.99
Inifinite Painter $4.99

I have a place for my music finds. I have place for my netflix finds. I have a place for books and games I like. Where to put odd-n-end weird shit that catches my eye? Here, I guess... Very Happy

So... poor quality video, BUT, IMHO... BEST SATAN EVER!!!

Using this as a standard:

I know a comic book artist tends to draw between one and three comics a month. Depending on the comic, that's 24 pages each, five to six panels a page (unless they're splash)... we'll go with five for now. One splash page, 23 pages of five panels, that comes out to 116 pictures a book, or 348 pictures a month. A good many artists don't even draw everything in the pictures, but leave it to the inker,...

Okay, just got back from another run. Mission 2 of 'Zombies, Run!' complete. Survived again! 4 Zombie chases this time, AND instead of just hearing them and then losing them, 'Bitchin Betty' actually warned me at 100 meters, measured my speed, and warned me at 35 meters...then alerted me when I had to drop one of my picked up items to distract the zombies. Next time, I kicked it in gear so I didn't have to drop any items, and at 64 meters I managed to evade the zombies! Which reminds me, I have to go in and upgrade my base with the items I picked up...

Now for the run specs. I didn't...

This awesome piece of literature is NOT was found as a user signature on some other forum somewhere, but it was so well done I have to share:

""Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pron-surfed, weak and weary,
Over many a strange and spurious pronsite of 'hot XXX galore'.
While I clicked my fav'rite bookmark, suddenly there came a warning,
And my heart was filled with mourning, mourning for my dear amour.
" 'Tis not possible!" I muttered, "Give me back my free hardcore!"
Quoth the server,

I am by no means a "great" artist. Sometimes I do something that I'm okay enough with to display to others, many times I don't quite get to that level of okay enough. Lately I've been spending more time on an online art "social network" community, sharing my photos and digital art with anyone who gives a crap. Having access to an entire well-polished one-stop for anything and everything artistic, and having several million members to critique and discuss is really kind of inspiring, and I'm having all kinds of ideas. But, on to my gripe of sorts.

One thing I like doing is going to this...

Yes, butter...or a room temperature tub of country crock...I'm spreading my resources too thin yet again. I had fired up a semi-official blog wherein I was trying to stay professional and 'on target' about things that piss me off with the world. I thought I had a nice start of a run against government policy, and was going to take a break to go after an article I read about a tank contract (but the tank article disappeared from the net before I could properly reference it), then maybe do some software piracy bits...and then I got caught up in a mix of facebook political fanaticism and my...

So here's some thinking...maybe even a thought. Firing up the grill for a little late night brat wursting, and I finished off the bag of charcoal. Damn. Me being one of those guys who has to get right in there and arrange my coal brickettes until I feel they are just right, a thought occurred to me...

In this day and age of failing economy, rising fuel costs, and dwindling natural resources, there HAS to be some use we can find for the bottom-of-the-bag charcoal dust besides just making hand prints on the front of our jeans! I mean, can't we collect that stuff and compress...
