Definitely, #5: Bring up your training style. My Facebook wall currently consists of exactly two topics: Ebola (many friends are nurses) and shrill dog training method arguments. I don’t even want to log in to Facebook anymore.

As a former dog listserv/dog forum moderator, I am mostly laughing at their list (and crying a little bit too, because so little has changed in the last decade and a half).

don’t say you’re a writer if you just write fanfiction for your entertainment. you’re only a writer if you kill a bear with a typewriter to appease the spirit of hemingway and slather yourself in ink in tribute to shakespeare, the one true over-penis of literature.

Have you check out the Veronica Mars DeviantART group #NeptuneNoir? Click http://neptunenoir.deviantart.com/

Yeah I have. I check around regularly to see fan art. I’m a fan art enthusiastic :)

But but but there are people looking at YOUR stuff and admiring it like that, too!!!

hahaha thanks K, you’re so sweet :)

Is just that I bumped into this profile. It’s insanely good, there are many with movement too! I wanna do that. I wanna do everything! Are they using the 3D filters you were talking with lilamadison11? I WANNA KNOW! I’m in a thirst of knowledge mood.

Oooh! I just looked up that “Fractalius” thing they were referencing. Looks like it is a third party filter: http://www.redfieldplugins.com/filterFractalius.htm

I wonder if my poor old graphics card will handle that one, or if I need to start looking into a new laptop! I just got an email asking if I was available for some freelance work, you bet my answer is gonna be YES YES YES can you pay in 10 days instead of 30 YES YES YES :)

Ohhhhhhhhhh I just try it! Look!

It’s not heavy on the graphics card I think.

But still the guy’s work is more detailed, I guess he draws lines all over the scene so when he uses the filter it highlight better? what do you think?

Ooooh… cool!!

I have to agree with you on the process of the artist (megaossa) you linked from DA. He probably does his own modifications to the images before applying the filter to control what’s highlighted, etc.

Just more proof that it’s not enough to own Photoshop and a bunch of filters, there is still so much of the artist that needs to go into every great creation. I am really looking forward to see what else you do with this filter, J!

"That’s what they want me to believe."

LOL This was so awesome. Favorite episode yet.

Ep 6 is ridiculously hilarious! Each episode is better than the last and still laughing from Ryan as Jon Snow

LOL There is no way in HELL Ryan could pull off Jon Snow. Jason maybe, but definitely NOT Ryan.

I found this episode is a bit depressing actually. Right rottweilersatemylaptop? I know this is NOT canon whatsoever, but I was so surprised to see Cassidy there. I know Kyle was gonna have a cameo, but I actually gasped to see him there. But it was the whole dream like conversation between Dick and Cass, kinda like reminiscence of Veronica/Duncan with Lilly. And the fact that Cass said, “I told you, I told you…” it was like, this wasn’t Dick’s first conversation with his late brother. And he also probably in denial about the whole suicide thing. Chronic depression and such. OMG, I know this is not Veronica Mars, and they just playing around, definitely anti-Veronica with the whole show actually, Weevil and Keith died, but still, this was like taking me by surprise. I have to keep reminding myself that we’re not watching Veronica Mars, canon wise even.

ALL OF THIS^^^^ I found myself sitting there thinking, “Is this Rob’s headcanon about Dick? Does he talk to Cassidy or even see him, maybe? Is he in denial, or did he never really believe that Cassidy’s death went down the way he was told it did?” 

This ties in with Dick’s chronic depression and need for pot brownies in the movie in ways that I can’t think about if I expect to get any work done today. 

No kidding, hanitjemars and neptunerising70. It WAS kind of depressing, especially since I was still under the impression that PIAD was all about stupid fun and not heartbreak. Weevil’s and Keith’s deaths fit totally into the ’70s/’80s detective show spoof thing. Cassidy’s appearance - not so much.
