Having Fun With BUG MARTINI

BUG MARTINI is a fun and irreverent comic strip that often tickles my funny bone. I just got an itch to try something funny with it... like change all the text. :D

Bug Martini--Kinda

 

* The main character from Schlock Mercenary is an glob-like alien that…

Are Dwagons "Cookie Thieves"?

   The claim is often made that Dwagons are "cookie thieves".   Is this true?

    It depends on your point of view:  are you the cookie owner or the dwagon?   In a dwagon's eyes, in order for it to be a cookie thief the cookie would have to be "not theirs"... which to a dwagon means the cookie is either in someone's hand or mouth, one of the two.  If it's in a hand it needs to be no where near a dwagon's mouth or it might be mistaken as an offering.   And dwagons have been known to…

Unique Music Instruments Around the World

This is a copy of a post I wrote on the Inworldz forums but I decided to duplicate here for Elf Clan postertity and 'cos music is awesomesauce.  : )

Folks may know that I make cigar box guitars.  The very name classifies it as a "guitar"... however it's played differently, tends to have only 3 strings, and most I've seen are made by hand (power tools is okay too).  To me, that makes almost the entire genre "unique".  All one has to do is…

Taking an Extended Semi-Vacation

Halloo from you friend, Snoots.

I wanted to let everyone know I'm taking an extended semi-vacation from VR (not totally, just semi).  Posting this because our group is very caring and when someone disappears for any length of time, people start wondering if is okay.   So letting you know I'm okay... just shifting priorities. :-)

The Dragon and the Pet Shop

Is true story.

A dragon walks into a local petshop.



"Greetings!" he says to the owner. "Do you have any rabbits?"



"Oh no," the shop owner says. "I know you dragons. You just plan on eating that rabbit. I would not dream of putting the poor creatures through such a final experience!"



The dragon stops and thinks. "I'd really like a pet. How about a guinea pig?"



"You're not fooling me," the shop owner replies. "You're a dragon. You'll…

Obsession, Thy Name is Amazon

Did you know you can buy just about anything on Amazon.com?

 

It doesn't matter if you actually need it or not, the lure is always present. You may not have ever thought of that particular item. You may have never seen one before. But suddenly there it is on your screen and before you know it-- you've hit that BUY button.

 

For example, long long ago I read a graphic novel (long comic book). It was a particularly good one but I hadn't thought of it in years...…

Snoots Final Performance... Re-Focusing

Thursday May 16, 6pm I will be doing a live music performance for the Gypsy camp at Cormear.  It is fitting that this will be my final virtual live music performance.  

I've been thinking about this for some time and have chosen this event for a couple of reasons:

* Cormear is an Elf Clan region. 

* The Gypsies are a new group that have endeared themselves to many groups and regions over the past months.  Although they are new they equal Elf Clan in enthusiasm…

DOING QUALITY RESEARCH

What is best way to do research?  Dis true story:

Three birds were assigned to do research papers:   a tern, a stork and an ostrich.

The ostrich immediately stuck its head in the sand and thought whatever things it wanted to think, ignoring the world around it.

The stork walked out into the water and ate fish.   Anything that wasn't a fish it wasn't interested in.  As far as the stork was concerned, if you weren't a fish-eater you weren't…

Setting Things Straight

I am going to be a little un-dwagon here for a moment, by necessity.  Time to don my Guardian role... a cloak I try to wear as seldom as possible.

A member of Elf Clan wished to bring a specific theme into Elf Clan and when such was declined, left Elf Clan and began making public claims of "discrimination".  Such claims are false.  This blog sets the record straight.

Torchwood is an adult, intentionally-controversial show.  Such concepts are against our…

FOOTSBALL: ORKS vs DWAGONS & PIXIES

Is true story.

The day was bright and crisp, with just enough chill to make the fans wear cloaks and the players comfy.  There was a sense of expectation and wonder in the air as the time drew closer for the beginning of the event everyone had been waiting for:  the first ever Orks vs Dwagons & Pixies Footsball game.



If one were to look into the bleachers you would have seen a diverse and enthusiastic crowd. …

ROTTEN OL' LINKY LAB

I was working on Inworldz today on my Firefly starship.



Because they don't have arbitrary, no-reason, silly constraints... I managed to link the entire 768 prim, 80 meter long ship into one object.



This means I don't have to use a Multi-Move flight script (and the resultant lag) to move the ship.



It means the ship doesn't move like a can in a tornado with pieces catching up with one another... but as one linked piece, smoothly (or relatively so).



It means I… Continue

CREATING WEB-BASED FREEBIE PACKS!!!

I read a post from Bryster leading to a place where they offer web-based freebies that work on just about any virtual world. After examining the site... I figured out how they do it. So I'm passing this info on to you! Hoooo!



IMPORTANT: Don't do this with any item to which you prefer to retain "ownership" rights. The way the worlds are set up, when a build is imported it does not retain original creator name; it is created under the name of… Continue

Steampunk

You heard of Steampunk, yups? What is Steampunk?



Lotta lotta people have tried to define Steampunk and failed, either by being too simple... or too complex.



Here my definition of Steampunk, by three basic rules:

1. Edwardian / Victorian times never ended.

2. Steam is major source of power. Never discovered gasoline or fossil fuels.

3. Alternate reality (what would have happened IF; it's not our reality).



I've looked at all kinds of definition and… Continue
