(R:) During this last stretch of silence, I've actually written a few different posts. Sometimes I'd get tired and save the raws somewhere and never finish them, or forget what I was trying to say. Sometimes I'd stop in the middle, thinking that maybe I shouldn't post about something after all. At some point in time, I might round up all those stray masses of text and comb through them for useful/interesting things, but this is not such a post. This is more the result of having too many little things knocking against each other Inside at a time when deadlines are, shockingly, not
ganging up to kill me in my sleep. (That's a weird feeling after the work deluge this past month, I tell you...I keep checking things to make sure I'm not still behind on at least three different projects. o_o)
(R:) Before it gets too late, then--
(BT:) I was recently delighted to discover that here, forty thousand years before my birth, some of your Marines are already my Marines
(BT:) ...Terra, Terra, sweet Terra, oh how the joys of you fill me like a cup overflowing...<3 ^_____^
(R:) I would search YouTube for the Army's attempt to one-up the Marines with Lady Gaga, but I'm afraid that I would actually find something. c_c;;
(R:) Also, I wonder what it would take to get my
future unit to do something like this. Hmmmmm. :9
(D:) Lots of idle time, maybe?
(D:) Okay, people, I AM ALLCAPPING AT YOU BECAUSE YOU HAVE HURT MY HEART
(D:) IN PARTICULAR
(D:) WHY DIDN'T ANYBODY TELL ME A LONG TIME AGO THAT POP-TART CAT
(D:) Now people are putting that shit in Minecraft and on manly T-shirts
and in interactive Flash games where YOU make the cat go NOWHERE
and here I am, UNINFORMED AND BLEEDING FROM MY TENDER SOUL PARTS.
(D:) Come on. Did you guys just not know that I'm a huge Nyan Nyan Nyanko
fan because Nyankos are adorable, huggy kitties who are made of meat and SMILE while they HIDE IN PEOPLE'S FOOD, as if they were cheerfully hoping to get eaten?? Pop-Tart Cat is like a Nyanko Space Angel Jesus who shoots rainbows from its ass while rocketing toward Earth from a distant galaxy, on a mission to provide Earthlings with sublimely nummy pastrymeat that can know no equal. It's like Nyanko plus Awesome.
(D:) LITTLE CRITTERS WHO WANT TO BE FOOD = RELEVANT TO MY INTERESTS
(D:) So look what I did for you guys, so that this never happens again. Riss is kind of dorky and awkward and scared of using his words with other people, so let's cut him out of the loop by using MY PERSONAL EMAIL ADDRESS, which is [daggerskin at gmail dot com]. I just got it today. TELL ME THINGS that large, well-informed carnivores should know, and if you're not sure, TELL ME ANYWAY. You can even tell me totally random shit, and if my box becomes a hotspot of Internet Awesomery we could even make a comm out of it (hay_u_draggin
or something) and hang out and talk relevance together in the spirit of kindredhood.
(D:) Just know that I'm not super talky like some of these other guys, so use tiny words. :B Also, I may cuss at you, but only if you make me squee or something.
(D:) THIS WILL NEVER HAPPEN AGAIN
(D:) OR I WILL SNIFFLE AND MAKE SAD EYES AT YOU GRRRRR >:(
(BT:) Related to relentlessly musical pastry cats is a series of "Sound Hounds" that we recently found on FurAffinity. According to the descriptions, they were inspired by certain types of effects and samples common in "dubstep" music.
(BT:) The term isn't familiar to me, though I'm wondering if I've heard some of it accidentally before. Riss was thinking that it was possibly related to Autechre, though we haven't even listened to his complete collection by that group due to Riss getting headaches from it.
(BT:) But I love the idea of artificial creatures born from only one genre; it's the sort of thing that I would do, if I were still in charge. I should get Riss to draw some of the music creatures that I used to use...and make me a new icon. And buy me a pony. ;3 One can dream~
(BT:) Here is a picture of the original Soundhound pair
, with links to all the others in the description.
(D:) Oh! And related to heavy puppies and thick, wobbly beats would be...AR TONELICO 3
. Which just came out in the US last month.( Cut for very long, rambling conversation involving much passing-off of the keyboard and potential NSFW-ness.Collapse )
(R:) Back to the work-wrapping-up I go. There was actually more randomness, but I guess that we're all still capable of talking about one or two vids for a very long time. ^^;; Academics and other concrete obligations should be over on 12 May, so this is the home stretch... I'm hoping that it'll be possible to actually have a life after then, at least a little one, but I don't want to jinx it by hoping too hard. More actual content later?
