    I just set up a really quick portfolio while I'm looking for internships. Kinda shoddy using a tumblr theme, but it'll do for now.

    Any feedback?

    Don't go sending it to anyone just yet.
    We're sorry

    Yeah, it's not letting me edit the HTML either.

    I'll go do some grocery shopping and hope it's up when I get back.

    Now that I'm not at work I can make a longer post-

    @Squid: I do hope that it's not just here where you've decided to bury the lead of, "hey I'm pregnant" inside a conversation on a completely different topic, because there are some no doubt priceless reactions to be had from friends/family members there. I'm talking straight-up slapstick style spit takes.

  • DirtyDirtyVagrantDirtyDirtyVagrant Registered User regular
    I haven't seen squid indicate that she intended to be pregnant.

  • GrifterGrifter TorontoSuper Moderator, Moderator mod
    Wait, did Squid marry Spex? Weren't they dating last week?

    condolences and congrats, Squiddo
    that is certainly a conflicted set of circumstances

    Is steak and green beans and a gin and tonic bad for a sick person?
    I probably should've had pho instead

    Fuck I've had a rough night.

    A girl finds me interesting, funny, talented, attractive and loves spending time with me. I find her equally attractive, intelligent, talented, love spending time with her... who won't fucking date me... "isn't looking for a relationship" then turns around to a mutual friend and complains that she isn't in a relationship and doesn't have a significant other. This friend tells another mutual friend and they see us spending time together as friends as a sign that she is interested in me as a significant other (when she and I both have had that conversation and have an "understanding" on the matter) and they each try to set the two of us up. (though we do flirt quite a bit)

    This was the situation last week. Turns out I'm not very good at this "just friends thing". I haven't really had time with this new job (nor has she had time) for us to hang out and spend any time together. She invited me out to see her play in this band, and I fell in love with her when she was playing...

    fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck...

    Oh hey I totally missed that Squids was pregnant, Congratulations Squido, I hope everything goes swimmingly.
    Sorry to hear about the dog, if it makes you feel any better I had to make the call on putting my kitty to sleep a few weeks back (he was really sick) and I felt like Adolf Eichmann for a few days afterwards, even though I knew it was for the best.

    My portfolio is up and running now, I think.

    The first image is so wide that it got clipped off by my browser window, and so I didn't realize it was a horizontal scrolling page with more images on it at first. Letting functional clarity get hampered by your art = a knock on your design cred.

  • FlayFlay Registered User regular
    Agreed it's way too large right now, I'm mucking around with it trying to get it to fit in more appropriately.

    If you already had "the talk" with her, about how you feel and such, then its a lost cause, move on, find other girls, maybe after the next heartbreak or two you guys might look at eachother diferent.

    And I make a second post because its another topic.

    What are those blue bars under our avatars? Mine is like fully loaded, can I shoot some special powers or something ?

    I always share personal information like this, secreted away in walls of unrelated material, allowing for further straight-up slapstick style spit takes, on my part, when I realize how little people know about me and what misconceptions I've allowed to grow, unpruned, into twisted and terrible topiaries of hilarious misinformation:

    Man, why even bother writing a full article when the URL gives away the goods for free.

  • EncEnc FloridaRegistered User regular
    Man I just don't understand that. I understand how you can get frustrated at capitalism's negative sides, but the concept to toss away money entirely is pretty impossible on any degree of scale.

    Eventually his cactus seeds and wildflowers that he eats for a living would become a currency of sorts if enough people adopted his lifestyle.

    Yeah but that would be a barter system wouldn't it? I mean the trade of goods or services for goods or services isn't the trade of arbitrary counters for goods or services.

    A barter system is just a smaller scale monetary system. When it gains significant enough complexity, you have to take away [2 apples] = [a bushel of peanuts] due to the inability to physically hold all goods being transacted, so you have a token as a placeholder for those goods.

    This is especially true when you consider all of the service based professions out there. The guy that fixes the non-money commune's boots for a living isn't making them new ones, but wants to be compensated for his efforts. Perhaps all I have to give him to fix my boots is wildflowers, which he hates for some reason. I would then have to trade twice to get an item to trade for my boots to be fixed (wildflowers->something worthwhile to the other guy-> get boots fixed), with no guarantee that I will have the same amount of value over those two transactions as I would to begin with. A placeholder (money) which everyone agrees is worth a set amount helps facilitate these sorts of transactions.

    Money happens because it is useful. Arguably, the same thing is true about futures trading, investing and all other corporate nonsense that eventually cause a top-end problem in a capitalist system.

    The hippies have been pushing the values and manipulating the market by a whole 17%. Meanwhile rock lobbers have been devaluing their stock to insane amounts so they will be the go-to people for high quality minerals at cheap ass prices and cheap ass labor, maintaining a steady growth in their empire with a favorable export rate and a very low import rate... so you wont get a peddle.
