Night of the Living Wangbabies
19:55 in irk

An IRC log from earlier this week- upon a reread, it's obvious to me that I should probably stop drinking. o_o


01:55 < @solios> Oh.
01:55 < @solios> speaking of evil.
01:55 < @solios> (link of edited dewm)
01:55 < @solios> <- his brainmeats are ph34r.
01:56 < _Lasar> MY BRAINMEATS ARE SAUCE!
01:57 < @solios> Sweet.
01:57 < bda> I had a sammich in my head!
01:58 < @solios> bda: headsammich? o_O
01:59 < bda> It isn't even funny how fucked your brainmeats are.
01:59 < _Lasar> Haha
01:59 < @solios> Tell me about it.
01:59 < bda> Like.
01:59 < _Lasar> At least he's not pulling his own teeth out at work.
01:59 < bda> Usually I find other peoples pain amusing. But no.
01:59 < @solios> o_O
01:59 < _Lasar> How's Steve, anyway?
01:59 < bda> _Lasar: Jesus.
01:59 < bda> _Lasar: I assume he's still stupid.
01:59 < bda> And probably in serious pain.
01:59 < _Lasar> Hah
01:59 < _Lasar> Yeah :/
01:59 < @solios> heh.
01:59 < @solios> dude.
02:00 < @solios> pain is drawing that and realizing there's only Real Girl out there.
02:00 < _Lasar> Remember that IRC episode from months back where a kid overdosed on drugs while irking?
02:00 < @solios> I've OD'ed without irking.
02:00 < @solios> do I win?
02:00 < _Lasar> You didn't die on IRC.
02:00 < _Lasar> Like that kid.
02:00 < @solios> Heh.
02:01 < @solios> No, I woke up with a nosebleed and half a gram of cocaine in my septum.
02:01 < _Lasar> Er.
02:01 < @solios> I woke up, snorted, and was REALLY FUCKING AWAKE.
02:01 < @solios> Awkare neough to realize I didn't apy rent because I shoved it up my nose. :P
02:01 * solios got better.
02:01 < @solios> wait.
02:01 < @solios> somebody died on IRC?
02:02 < bda> Yeah.
02:02 < _Lasar> Yes.
02:02 < @solios> wtf.
02:02 < bda> It was funny.
02:02 < bda> Because the kid was a fucking idiot.
02:02 < bda> And his mom was in the next room.
02:02 < @solios> That's worse than dying while having BAD sex.
02:02 < bda> He did it to prove to other morons that he was "hardcore".
02:02 < _Lasar> Yeah.
02:02 < bda> And none of the other morons, who had his phone number, did anything.
02:02 < _Lasar> Popped all kinds of pills and shit.
02:02 < bda> Also: Webcam.
02:02 < @solios> heh.
02:02 < bda> Darwinism in action, gentlemen.
02:03 < @solios> gods.
02:03 < _Lasar> But one or two of the friends left the room in disgust to show they cared!
02:03 < @solios> morons.
02:03 < @solios> When I was in that phase, I shaved my balls.
02:03 < bda> Yeah. "Oh, man, I can't deal with this. Where's my bowl?"
02:03 < @solios> And wore a skirt.
02:03 < @solios> And confused the FUCK out of males.
02:03 < bda> Speaking of shaving testicles.
02:03 < @solios> o_O
02:03 < bda> I showed Adam and Evan "Drone".
02:03 < @solios> omfg.
02:03 < _Lasar> ?
02:03 < @solios> did they DIE?
02:03 < _Lasar> !
02:03 < _Lasar> ADAM AND EVA(n)
02:04 < _Lasar> ...
02:04 < _Lasar> Don't mind me.
02:04 < bda> Adam: I would appreciate it more if I was 15. His aesthetics are amazing, but I'm not getting any sense of cohesiveness.
02:04 * solios giggles.
02:04 < bda> Evan: ...
02:04 < @solios> heh.
02:04 < _Lasar> Drone?
02:04 < @solios> bda: tell Adam I made it out of shit sitting on my hard drive while I ws ahving a nrvous breakdown.
02:04 < bda> Adam is impressed with you, and believes when I say you've come far in the last two years. :D
02:04 < bda> I did.
02:04 < @solios> I'm not even sure I figured out what cohesiveness was until next year.
02:05 < bda> _Lasar: Drone is an industrial short film Hinder made while losing his mind.
02:05 < bda> And it shows.
02:05 < bda> But yeah.
02:05 < bda> You should do another movie.
02:05 < bda> Only so it makes sense.
02:05 < @solios> i don't want to go nuts again.
02:05 < bda> Call it "Drones" and steal the opening from Aliens like Drone did with Alien. :D
02:05 < _Lasar> You should send me that movie, too
02:05 < @solios> I mean, Drone makes sense now.
02:05 < @solios> So, like.
02:06 < @solios> if I go nuts agian, its' going to be my pr0n crossed with Eraserhead.
02:06 < @solios> Which will be like getting head from Nyarlethotep.
02:06 < bda> ...
02:06 < bda> No.
02:06 < bda> Just.. no.
02:06 < @solios> Right.
02:07 < bda> Can't you do ANYTHING without wangbabies?
02:07 < @solios> Nevermind that Drone : Dissonance is scripted and has a ready cast.
02:07 < @solios> Yes.
02:07 * solios thinks.
02:07 < @solios> Wait.
02:07 < @solios> no.
02:07 < bda> Oh. When are you coming down?
02:07 < @solios> 2028.
02:07 < bda> I need to schedule it with the PWF crew to make sure they're all
02:07 < bda> Oh fuck off :D
02:07 < @solios> Hopefully on a Wednesday.
02:07 < bda> Why Weds?
02:07 < bda> Why not a weekend?
02:08 < @solios> Because.
02:08 < @solios> Thursday's when the bars pick up.
02:08 * bda stares.
02:08 < bda> The only bar we'll be going to is Doobies. Or maybe Dirty Frank's.
02:08 < bda> Or uh, that other one where what's her face works.
02:08 < @solios> fag.
02:08 < bda> Who's a fag?
02:08 < bda> Bitch.
02:08 < @solios> er.
02:08 < @solios> due.
02:08 < @solios> dude, even.
02:08 < bda> due sup
02:08 < @solios> I haven't paid full price for a drink at a bar since 2000.
02:09 < @solios> SO.
02:09 < _Lasar> That's because they're SCARED.
02:09 < bda> That's because you're a fucking lush.
02:09 < @solios> No.
02:09 < @solios> Well, almost.
02:10 < @solios> More like a fixture.
02:10 < @solios> I write ATC in bars. :P
02:10 < @solios> AND IT SHOWS OMFG.
02:10 < @solios> :<
02:10 < @solios> Also, c2s2 will be 13 pages with FUCK said quite a bit.
02:10 < @solios> k?
02:11 < bda> :O
02:13 < @solios> er. I got an email back on my pr0n bit in which the person pegged some details about one of the characters, even though he knows none of the backstory, nor has he seen any of the older developmental art.
02:13 < @solios> bda: he lives in YOUR TOWN.
02:13 < bda> Oh good.
02:13 < bda> More wangbaby fetishists.
02:13 < @solios> Not wangbabies.
02:13 < @solios> But hey.
02:13 < bda> Lies.
02:14 < @solios> The fact other people pop a rubbery one over my pr0n makes me fisty.
02:14 < bda> "Fisty"?
02:14 < bda> God, you're frightening.
02:14 < @solios> In the "take off and nuke the site from orbit" sense of fisty.
02:15 < @solios> As opposed to "WOW I'M IN YOUR ANUS UP TO MY SHOULDER!" sense.
02:15 * bda punches his skull.
02:15 < bda> Hate.
02:15 < bda> Hate.
02:15 < bda> Hate.
02:15 < bda> Hate.
02:15 < bda> Hate.
02:15 * solios listens to King Diamond.
02:15 < bda> Hate.
02:15 < bda> ...hate.
02:15 < @solios> Boy howdy.
02:17 < @solios> bda: feel the power of the WANGBABYSIDE!
02:17 < bda> >:|
02:18 < @solios> I was BORN with wangbabypowah.
02:18 < @solios> It's not like I'm bursting braincases intentionally.
02:19 < bda> Heh.
02:19 < @solios> The sickest thing is that it's gotten me laid.
02:19 < @solios> :|
02:20 < @solios> Oddly enough, me getting s3xx0r3d and me drawing teh pr0n in public on a regular basis both ceased at roughly the same time.
02:20 < @solios> I'm not really sure I want to know what this says about me and girls.
02:20 < @solios> Specifically, the girls.
02:21 < bda> Heh.
02:23 -!- You're now known as solios_will_Be_hungover
02:23 * solios_will_Be_hungover will be, too.
02:23 < @solios_will_Be_hungover> :|
02:23 < bda> Heh.
02:23 < @solios_will_Be_hungover> k!
02:23 < @solios_will_Be_hungover> BRAINS ARE SKWISHY!
02:23 < @solios_will_Be_hungover> I WIN!
02:23 < @solios_will_Be_hungover> I SLEEP!
02:23 < bda> WHOO.
02:23 < bda> 'nite.
02:23 < bda> Crazy man.
02:23 < @solios_will_Be_hungover> 'nite.
02:24 < @solios_will_Be_hungover> best drone sequel would be wangbabydrone.
02:24 < @solios_will_Be_hungover> no one would survive.
02:24 < bda> :X
02:24 < @solios_will_Be_hungover> :D
02:24 * solios_will_Be_hungover goes.

Progressive Sorting Techniques

Okay. So, I've had alcohol in my system for at least the last five weeks straight. Maybe a hair less. No wonder waking up is such a pain in the ass- it's like the stuff turns into lead while I sleep, and sloshes around in my skull looking for an exit as I attempt to wake up. Treating this with energy drinks has a habit of attenuating my attention span, to the point where I behave in a fashion more becoming of a rabid lead-filled gerbil. Might explain the attention span I have with regards to ATC. :P

There are, of course, solutions. Many of which are very obvious, none of which are the sort of thing which I would file as easy to implement- hell, switching from eating at CoGos every night to actually buying sammich material twice a week (having now slipped to once a week) was an effort that would make Atlas blanche. Change doesn't come easily for me- but when it happens, it's violent and hypothetically permanent. We as humans have a fucked up habit of getting lazy and settling into patterns that require the least effort with the most benefit- when some effort will result in a much more useful distribution of resources. The nagging realization of this fact is a source of endless low grade frustration until the individual finally gets sick of his conscience shitting on his precious slack time and does something about it.

Hit that point, and if you're tactical about your slack, you already have a plotted road map ready to field test.


Burn, burn. Burn brightly.

Killing Joke++

A smallish show Wednesday night. Good time. Probably the least amount of ass Laga has sucked in several years. It helps that the album they're touring on is quite good. I'm happy to own it. The sun's vomiting, and Jaz Coleman looked mildly irritated to find himself in Pittsburgh. Can't say I blame him.

In other news, I've been rebuilding and reworking several machines at the workplace, and have gotten a bit sidetracked from ATC, which is a major annoyance. Chapter two scene two is scripted and ready to start on, after which the drafting table and natural lighting in the work area were immediatly ripped out by a stealthy ninja horde. Distraction after distraction- tell a person a few obvious keys about getting oneself motivated, and suddenly it's a nonstop telephone leghump. No wonder people who know their shit keep their mouths shut.

I'm probably going to Laga again tonight. Not that I really want to- it's an all ages halloween thing featuring bands I typically make fun of, and there will be kids. And sucks. Lots of sucks. Gag. Both of my typical alcohavens are clogged with holiday-themed events of uckiness- the sort of thing that makes Laga oddly appealing. :P

Oh, and I can't think straight. Been fairly hard to do that for the past few days. At least the scripting is done- all I gotta do is pull my head out of my ass and do some artwork.

Well, lots of artwork. This time last year, an entry of this type would have turned into a masturbatory to do list. I know what I'm doing now, and I have a pace, a method, and all that other fun stuff. It's all a question of wether to start it up in October or November.

In other news, I'm sick of the mercury design again. I'll probably do something about it at some point in the near future, with more emphasis on revising the css, streamlining content further, etc, etc. Or I'll cease with the distractions and get my ass right back on ATC, which is where my booty belongs. :D

Well.
17:23 in site

Minor updates. Added a list of known accomplices. Cleaned up and reordered Viz, adding the old biotech artwork. It's in there mainly as a contrast against carbon_ and more recent digital artwork- same concepts, different medium.... and it works better in photoshop. Writeups for each of the Projects in place. ATC is proceeding more or less on schedule, I have a little more cash than I thought I did, it's cold and drippy and :| outside, and aside from that, everything is going more or less as planned.

Whee.
