Propaganda Depository / Missing llama flyer
« on: May 26, 2010, 02:51:26 pm »
This... I have no excuse for, other than sleepiness.

I'm driving to North Carolina tomorrow ( :x ) so I figure I'm just gonna hang these up at every rest stop I stop at and the con when we get there. The phone number on the tags goes to a rickroll.

It ain't much, but it'll keep me entertained on the trip.

Bring and Brag / MY BATMANS. LET ME SHOW YOU THEM.
« on: December 17, 2009, 03:37:29 pm »
There's a local comic shop in the area (Hub Comics in Union Square, Somerville, for those of you who are in the area and like AWESOME THINGS) that's running an art exhibit called "The Dark Knight on a Dark Night." It'll be opening this Saturday, and I've submitted two paintings for exhibition there. I wanted to do a third, but ran out of time/energy.

Anyways, these are my Batmans. I think the Dark Knight is VERY SERIOUS.





I'm not a particularly talented artist, but I had fun with these. :D


TAGFAIL :oops:

Apple Talk / CA Proposal To Ban Divorce
« on: December 01, 2009, 07:28:15 pm »
I've been skulky lately, so hopefully this hasn't already been posted... I tried to do a quick trawl to check that it wasn't repost. Sorry if it is.

Anyways: http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/us_banning_divorce

There's a guy in California pushing to ban divorce, since he has noted that California really cares about protecting the "sanctity of traditional marriage." :lulz:

Apple Talk / An inane observation.
« on: October 29, 2009, 06:50:09 pm »
You are FULL of potential, talent, vision... You have such opportunity. You are, of course, wasting it, and you know it, and you are unhappy.

What will you do about it, though? You can make these gestures, you can attempt to break out... But how far are you willing to go? How much are you willing to push and struggle against your bonds? And can you even do it? Are you even in control of your own self, or are you just some tiny creature, huddled and shaking deep inside the cavernous cage that is your body? You're so small and lonely in the echoing emptiness of your shell. No one can hear you if you scream.

You could, I suppose, go crazy and just explode. But even if you did, could you make your shell do your bidding and lash out too? And say you succeed. Will you get anywhere, or will you just dig yourself deeper into the hole? The more you struggle, the more the quicksand will suck you down.

And maybe the person trapped in the cell next to you is trying to get out too. Maybe you're both flailing, going down, fingers clawing for purchase as the light vanishes and the world around you closes over your head...

But no one can hear you scream.

Apple Talk / ATTN: NIGEL and other PDX Spags
« on: September 10, 2009, 07:35:19 pm »
This Saturday.

Be a time traveler.

Bring the lulz.

Then tell us about them.

I kind of have an internet crush on that guy, so you should go have an awesome time so I can live vicariously through you. :D

Bring and Brag / So I wrote this short story...
« on: June 11, 2009, 05:48:26 pm »
...But it's actually pretty long (like 12 pages or something, single spaced) because I'm a tool like that. And now I don't know if there's somewhere on these fine interbutts that I can upload it so's I can link it here?

I'm pretty dissatisfied with how I wound up ending it, but I've been working on it for SO DAMN LONG that it really just HAD to end, for the sake of getting it out. Now I can start fixing things. But, ultimately, it was inspired by PD (there's even PosterGASM in it!) so I'd like to get some feedback from anyone who has the patience to slog through it as to what the fuck I should do with the godforsaken ending.

Also, it'll get workshopped in my writing group next week, which should be interesting. And hilarious. And possibly horrormirthy. We'll see.

Discordian Recipes / veggie nom nom
« on: April 01, 2009, 02:20:00 am »
So I know we're basically all carnivores here, but for those of you who are either adventurous or okay with things like tofu, I shall be sporadically posting the nommy veggie things I make. Tonight turned out fantastically amazing, which was the inspiration for this.

Before leaving for the gym, I diced up firm tofu into bite-size cubes and put them in a tupperware with teriyaki sauce, honey, ground ginger, some red pepper flakes, and a little bit of nutmeg (I had it hanging around, so why not). Went to the gym, came back, got some white rice cooking. Tossed the tofu and sauce into a frying pan and let the sauce sizzle and reduce and whatnot as the rice cooked. It started to get a nice skin on it just as the rice was finishing up.

It came out FREAKING DELICIOUS.

I put down a layer of white rice, then tossed the tofu on type. It was amazingly good--spicy and sweet, a little tangy. Oh man it was great. I just finished my bowl of it.



That tupperware full of nommy will go in my fridge at work and feed me for the rest of the week. Yay!

Or Kill Me / too apathetic to rant right, dammit
« on: March 24, 2009, 08:26:26 pm »
I just kinda wanna stab something, you know?

Seriously, it blows my mind how functional I am. I do about an hour of work a day, sometimes a little more if there's something big going on, yet somehow whenever people enter my office they apologize for interrupting me or disturbing me and I am constantly thanked for performing the smallest task, as if it were some insurmountable challenge. I maintain a budget and thus have credit card debt and am able to enjoy the occasional social interaction or frivolous purchase, which seems beyond the capacity of my peers. I maintain excellent grades in the graduate courses I have taken, have received very high praise from professors, and will likely be enrolling in a degree program shortly if only because everyone says I really ought to be so why the fuck not. I run seven minute miles, eat a low-fat low-calorie diet, and wear a size 2. Occasionally I even sync my smartphone to my shmancy fucking laptop.

OH MY GOD WHAT THE FUCK HOW AM I STILL ALIVE.

I feel like at any second I'm going to morph into Edward Norton at the beginning of Fight Club and light my fucking apartment on fire. Or maybe my hair, because it's windy and I really hate when it gets adhered to my chapstick. Or maybe the bus on the way to work in the morning because some jackass keeps hitting me in the face with their fucking backpack.

It is beyond my comprehension how I get out of bed in the morning. I am fairly certain that I sleepwalk through about 98% of my life, and I am not deluded enough to think that I am unique in that.

Everything is goddamn claustrophobic.

But I'm a bit too much of a pussy to act out in ways that might really fuck up my life--I'm not going to crash my car, or stab my roommates, or light my office on fire. I won't steal or destroy tangible things. Instead, I'll act out against people. That's a perfectly safe approach--fuck up people. Act out against them, strike where you have the opportunity and where, when you get right down to it, the consequences are minimal. Just ride that fucking power trip. Sure it's fucked up, but it gets you where you're going with minimal danger.

What does it say about our society when the most socially acceptable alternative is to ruin people, instead of things?

Discordian Recipes / CAKE
« on: September 19, 2008, 04:02:38 pm »
So guys, I am making a cake on Wednesday. I think I've selected a recipe, but I don't usually make straight up white cake. Usually whatever cake I make somehow involves alcohol (boozemuffins, Guinness cupcakes, etc). I'm a little flustered and confused now.

So, does anyone have a preferred white cake recipe? I'm leaning toward a basic white cake I was told is moist, or adapting Amy Sedaris' cupcake recipe to cake. But you kiddos sure do make some tasty stuff, so, POST CAKE ITT.

I will post results come Wednesday. There will be epic win (hopefully).

YUO GUISE

STICKERGASM MADE PHOTO OF THE DAY ON BOSTONIST!

http://bostonist.com/2008/09/12/photo_of_the_day_september_12_2008.php

HELL FUCKIN' YEAH

Propaganda Depository / New Basic 5160 Labels
« on: September 12, 2008, 05:08:46 pm »
More 5160 format labels for all your stickering needs... Both templates are just a full page of each, super basic stuff, but the kind of thing that are really useful to have a whole page of on your person. :lol:

http://www.cwyohba.org/noexit/cramulus/5160_citation_needed.doc --  :cn: but without the color, of course, as suggested by the brilliant TOG. I think you can figure out what to do with these.

http://www.cwyohba.org/noexit//cramulus/5160_actual_size.doc -- ACTUAL SIZE! in a star burst. Again, b&w as great as color would've been... I'm cheap. But anyways, I know there's some billboards around Boston just DYING to get these things stuck on them...

Go forth and prosper!

Or Kill Me / your life
« on: September 09, 2008, 03:05:00 am »
((It's been a while since I've flexed the ranting muscles. This'll be a bit short and sweet I expect, but here we go with heading back toward it... I've been really enjoying some of the memebomb stickers I've been putting up lately, and this is what's come of it.))

DO WHAT YOU WANT TO SAY YOU'VE DONE

For starters, grow a pair.

Make a decision, and then stand by your decision. Don't equivocate or sit on the fence, trying to avoid having to take action and shape your own life. Take action, and then run with it.

You're probably going to fuck it up. It's probably going to go wrong, or you're going to realize that what you thought you wanted isn't actually what you want, and you're not happy.

Who the fuck is actually fucking happy?! Seriously.

But grow a pair and keep TRYING. Don't just keep sitting on your ass, wondering when life is going to wander over and hand you everything you ever wanted. It doesn't work like that. Stand the fuck up, open your goddamn eyes, and take what you want. If nothing else, at least fucking TRY.

And if it doesn't work? If you don't end up happy and satiated like you thought? Then try something else. Keep trying. Accept that you made the wrong choice, and learn from it. Accept that maybe you're not as infallible as you'd like to be, that you are not fucking perfect. But at least be ballsy enough to try, instead of just sitting there thinking "Well, suppose I'm NOT perfect. Why bother?"

Because if you don't bother then you're just some stupid fucking lump that sits on their ass and worships the fucking teevee.

What, exactly, differentiates you from every other sack of meat perambulating across the surface of the planet? Can you think of anything?

Then get the fuck up off your ass and try to find something, make something, be something. If you aren't scared, if you aren't angry, if you aren't confused, if you aren't thinking, then you aren't doing it right. Grow the fuck up and stop waiting for the stars to align for you. Go out and at least partially make up for the space you are stealing, or so help me, I will come after you and put you through a blender so you don't take up so fucking much of it. Stop using my goddamn oxygen! What the fuck makes you think you deserve it?

YOUR LIFE: AND NOW WHAT?

Bring and Brag / Sweet merciful fuck, vandalism!
« on: September 08, 2008, 08:15:44 pm »
So I went to visit a cute boy this weekend, and I show up at his apartment and what did he make for me?!



A PTERODACTYL STENCIL. It's on clear plastic, so it's hard to see, but we tested it, so you can at least see the outline.

Here's an example of it in action, with my neon safety orange paint pen doing the honors:



We were going to try it out Saturday night, but Hanna kind of got in the way. So, next weekend. Boston area spags, beware. You never know when or where our pterodactyls will attack. :D

Has a crush :D

Bring and Brag / Pterodactyls? In MY artwork?!
« on: June 27, 2008, 03:19:11 pm »
IT'S MOAR LIKELY THAN YUO THINK

This is a work in progress. It will get completed when I get back from vacation in New Hampshire, but here's some progress pictures. I would like some feedback on suggestions for further shading colors, background, etc.



Making the stencil...



Transferring the stencil to the canvas...



Filling in the background...



Outlines!



And this is where I have it so far. Yellow pterodactyl on a red background. I'm going to shade the ptero more, but I can't decide if I want to do it with some orange and brown or some green and brown, so suggestions, please? Any further suggestions? I'm not really a very talented artist, so it probably won't get a whole lot better than this, but we'll see. ;)
