      there I was, innocent as could be, working hard on coloring comics for Miller, when all of the sudden, Peter Moore of EA games shows up! And he puts a gun to my head and FORCES me to play spore! Not just for one or two, but for six hours! I'm both shocked and offended by this! I intend to file a lawsuit against EA games for forcefully wasting my time... well... as soon as I reach the space age...

    • Batman: The Dark knight

      11 years ago

      Rs_Conqueror

      I've heard pretty much nothing but good about the new batman film, which made me highly suspicious. Particularly with regards to Heath Ledger, who as you all know, as pretty much already won an oscar for his role, not based on his performance, but the mere fact that he is now very very dead.
      Thankfully any suspicions or apprehensions I had were completely misplaced, and if Ledger wins any awards for his acting in TDN, they are very well deserved. His performance of a psychotic sick twisted SOB had me squirming in my seat for all two and a half hours of the film.
      And yes it was a masterpiece of a film, and yes I will go and see it again, and yes it is the best film of the year. I left the theater with only one trailer stuck in my head.
      Fucking Watchmen!
      Have you seen the watchmen trailer? If you saw TDN of course you have. But don't let that stop you from seeing it again, and again, and again.
      Seriously, I had done my best to avoid any stills or slides regarding watchmen on the off chance that it would suck. (Don't want another V for Vendetta on our hands do we?)
      And the fact that Alan Moore had demanded his name be removed from the credits was also particularly disheartening.
      Thankfully it seems that there is a good chance that watchemen will remain true to the comic. The running time of anywhere between 220-300 minutes cheered me up immensely. The costumes are spot on, mostly. (Because apparently Silk Specter wasn't enough of a slut in the comic.)
      Oh as for Alan Moore removing his name from the credits?
      Ignore that. He's a crazy old man with a messiah complex. Seriously, look at him, he dresses like jesus and can't get over how great he is.
      So watchmen 2009, I came great gold bricks.

    • brb, summer camp

      Oh you know summer camp right? We'll I've reached the age where the only way to keep going is to become a councilor. And before you ask, no I'm not going to be training girls at cheerleader camp or anything as awesome as that. Its an American history camp, and I'm teaching one of the classes.
      Whats that you say? Me, and hundred(s) of impressionable young minds in the same room? Let's hope I'm not teaching anything that involves the fate of the universe or anything... Oh wait, all hope is lost, I'm teaching on global warming. And I think they may be in for a bit of a surprise. Oh god, I think the chans have killed me...
      Anyway, I should be home sunday for a couple of days, and then its off to Washington DC with some friends. (Because visiting high crime cities where you'll get jumped is FUN FUN FUN!)

    • Indiana Jones was good`

      11 years ago

      Rs_Conqueror

      Saw the new Harrison Ford movie. It was very good. It felt like the old movies without relying on them completely for nostalgic moments. None of those "Oh yeah, lol I remember when he did that back in the first movie" sequences. That made me particularly happy, because it means that it stands on its own legs as a film, and not on the backs of the first three drawing all its glory from nostalgia.
      The other thing that made me quite happy was how the pretty boy from transformers (You know who I mean) didn't cock up his role the way I was expecting.
      The plot was campy and fun, but then thats what made all the Indiana Jones movies so enjoyable.
      Another thing I liked was how Spielberg didn't take the George Lucas "Lets replace all the sets and actors with CGI JUST BECAUSE WE CAN AND WE HAVE THE BUDGET!" approach. With a few exceptions, the action and the sets feel solid, the four screens devoted to stuntmen in the credits is proof enough.
      I would write more of why I enjoyed it, but my morning coffee hasn't kicked in it, so I'm almost writing this in a trance. >.<
      I'll see you all later.

    • Miller will kill me for this...

      11 years ago

      Rs_Conqueror

      Gameforlife internet superstar Josh Miller wants me to wait until he can get a press pack for the upcoming comic release that we've been working on.
      Well SCREW THAT!
      Boys ang Girls of America, the uncharted backwaters of the Canadas, and everywhere else that has interweb access; I give you: Some colored panels!
      fonts001.jpg
      Instead of going with the (much) easier vector word bubbles which Josh had originally wanted me to do, I'm hand drawing all of them.
      Yes thats right, every, damn, speech bubble.
      At least he didn't ask me to make a custom font or something like that...
      fonts002.jpg
      Same goes word boxes, all done by hand. As you can see this approach works much better with the art style then a translucent vector bubble would.
      And oh god, I just realized I've devoted an entire blog to talking about speech bubbles...
      Well, if talk of freeware fonts and vector imaging doesn't excite you, at least enjoy the pretty, pretty art...

      We encode them at 192kbs. When it came time, a few years ago, to digitize my CD collection (about 1500 CDs), I researched bitrates, as well as different codecs. My classical stuff is at 256k, but for rock, I couldn't tell the difference between 256 and 320, much less 192 and 256, so all my rock stuff is at 192, and even that seems like overkill for a lot of music.

      It's still better than the iTunes store, which does 128k, although granted their codec is killer. We haven't considered lossless -- I'm not even sure there's a platform-independent lossless codec out there, although there probably is by now. The thing is, most people aren't going to want to download a lossless version -- at that point, they'll probably just get the CD (and get the groovy artwork etc).
