    I'm not down on it. I think atmospherically it's a cool setup between the musical presentation and the idea of a last-man-on-earth mech pilot kept in stasis during the apocalypse (although, "nature reclaims the metropolis" is becoming the new "desertified wasteland" of cliche post-apocalyptic settings)

    I just think it's prudent to reserve any enthusiasm until they actually have a product that exists and is worth attention, not just a 2 minute CG short.

    ... and how they are or are not translating to their idea of you as "an artist" or how "skilled"/"amateurish" you are. It can be embarrassing to post art you know isn't 100% okay, but...that's how you learn, right?
    I don't really care if other people know that I'm bad, I know I'm bad. I think the best way to overcome caring about others opinions is fall flat on your face a few times. I think the self-criticizing part is when you admit that you've fallen on your face, instead of ignoring it, you learn from it :)

    I've gained so much weight I think my belly has begun eating things on its own. Things about which my mouth and hands know nothing. I've checked my naval for teeth and as yet have not been bitten.

    I'm afraid.

    Maybe, but I feel like I'm floundering blind through my sketchbooks.

    I guess I just keep doing that until I slowly develop dardevil/toph like perceptions? I made something that didn't look flat yesterday, which was pretty cool.

    So due to some inexplicable bug, my character in Fallout New Vegas is now practically blind. Everything is really dark, and it's none of the settings.
    I fast traveled from one place to the next and then boom, who turned out the lights?
    If it was the PC version I could probably do some fiddling with the debug console, or the problem wouldn't be happening at all. But no, I'm playing the PS3 version and nothing I do (resetting) can really fix it. I could load a previous save I suppose, it wouldn't be a terrible loss of progress. I just find it weird as hell.

    Edit: forgot to mention that menus and loading screens are perfectly normal, as is the HUD and Pipboy 3000 display.

    Man, one of my co-workers takes birthdays way too seriously. We always sing and eat cake on everyone's bday, but for the last one this particular co-worker was unable to go... well, actually, we forgot to call her. This was a week ago, she is now en route to get cake so we can sing him a second time.

    I have a similar problem but in the other direction! I've been super stressed out and I haven't been eating. Now I'm having ulcer pains when my stomach is empty and I suffer and feel like it's eating itself 80% of the time. Which makes me lose my appetite. But the pain doesn't go away until I eat something, and then 20 minutes later it hurts again. -_____-

    This happened to me a lot. It turned out to be gas that got stuck when I didn't eat. My pain was not in the stomach per say, but in the lower abdomen.

    f it is happening a lot on the upper end of the abdomen it can be an indicator of breaky things with your gall bladder and appendix. Happened with my wife a few years back.

    My mom makes it and adds broccoli-carrot slaw mixed with some red onions in there. Gives it a bit of crunch and some vegetable content. Man, it's been like years.

    There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity.
    It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man's fears and the summit of his knowledge.
    This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call "The Twilight Zone".

    This universe.

    I'm 99% sure it's ulcer pain. I've had ulcers before, and this is similar. It's the acid sitting in my stomach without any food that makes me hurt. The alternative is usually to eat something and if it isn't milk, I just have bad heartburn instead. I can't really afford doc visits with apartment searching and car repairs in the works, but it sucks that said problems are what's most likely giving me the (probable)ulcer. Hurr

    It wont bite you because it knows better, stick a twinkie in there and its gone for sure, also you will notice skinny people who eat constantly and gain no weight, well since there is newtons law of conservation of matter, it transfers microscopically to fat people.

    I think i'm going to start researching about good comic construction. I'm not particulary interested in making comics or reading a lot of them, i'd just like to find out how it works is all. Plus it'd be nice to be able to put a good label on certain moments I enjoyed in certain stories and be able to explain why :)

  • BuckwolfeBuckwolfe Registered User regular
    Well there's certainly nothing fucking wrong with that, GF. Even though you stated from the get go that you don't have any particular interest in making or reading comics, you may actually find, in the process of learning ABOUT them, that there's a lot there that you might enjoy. Both in the making and reading of said comics, I mean.

    No sense in denying yourself.....well, anything, really. =P

    I start with meatballs - 1/2 beef, 1/2 pork. A shitload of parsley, parmesan cheese, italian breadcrumbs, and eggs
    Cook them in olive oil, put em in another pan, deglaze the original pan w/ wine or stock (whatever) and pour that sauce-base mixture into the pot with the meatballs

    Add crushed tomato, tomato paste, beef stock, red wine, olive oil, parsley, oregano, and parmesan cheese and simmer.

    I use a potato masher to crumble the meatballs and in a separate bowl mix ricotta, parsley, mozarella, and more parmesan cheese (and eggs), and then start to assemble the lasagna.

    I want to make it again. Next time I wont fuck it up by burning the sauce.

    That really doesn't narrow it down much, other than that it was brand of beer that has a chocolate line. Which, like I said, doesn't narrow it down too much....

    I realize I lose a certain amount of nerd street cred but I've never seen Dr who. Recently though I've had a frighteningly large numerous of unrelated people slide to comment on or draw parallels from it. So much so I'm thinking of buying some seasons of it instead of the complete series of west wing.

    However I have questions ...

    Is the new series a remake like battle star galactica

    What show or film would you compare it to

    Is it responsible for canceling firefly

    What is your single favorite aspect of the show

    Preemptive thank yous
