And one last terrible Turkey Day joke... = )
One last throwback thing before I finally dig up the only recent pic I've finished that's currently shareable (the comic I finished is posting soon enough).
My favorite Hand Turkeys drawing from a few years ago.
Wait... no. I mean "Turkey Hands" drawing. It's my fave Turkey Hands drawing. = )
I also love that the kid has a Wolfman mug.
That they went w/ a Universal Monster that wasn't Franky or Drac makes me happy. = )
For the Curious... No. I never saw the 'Frankenweenie' animated film. It didn't really interest me. Trust when I say that the short is more than good enough for the story.
It's a quickie dealie that's Really better off a short subject than a feature length job. o.O
One of the things I love about my ancient VHS copy of 'The Nightmare before Christmas' is it has both the original live-action 'Frankenweenie' short & 'Vincent' - the stop motion short poem about a kid who wants to be Vincent Price... as read by Vincent Price.
Yeah, it also has the letterbox vers of Nightmare & the "Making of" but those shorts are more than worth it for me. = )
Remember when doing one's job wasn't a constant struggle?
Neither do I but I know I was better at it than this. -.-
I'd post the pics I dropped on that hellish Birdsite but... yeah. No. -.-
See, the place where all the tapes & DVDs are stored collects large objects. This means that they're rarely ever dusted & they haven't even been reorganized in almost a decade! It's a shame that I'd rather not have over here.
I'd rather post better pics here. Preferably of the collection finally cleaned up & filed in their proper places. = )
Did some dumb photo stuff earlier tonight - a bad photo shoot of my family's terribly large (and horribly dusty) VHS collection - and I found something that's been missing for Years. While going through some loose tapes, I found my missing VHS copy of 'The Nightmare before Christmas'. It's been missing since my nephews were little.
Now, it's finally back where it belongs. = )
Dumb (Good) Stuff...
Nothin' says lovin' like, for the 1st time in years, being able to play Santa for a season 'cause I have the money to pull it off.
The last of the Covid Cash is going toward some small gifts for more than just my nieces & nephews. I'm actually be able to hook my bro, sisters & my folks up w/ stuff. We all need a bit of happy this year.
I know I normally hide my gamer stuff 'cause.. well, I can... but this was a bit of a bummer.
Collector Pricing is & always has been nuts. It's one of the only things that makes me long for the days of small Mom & Pop game shops where it's likely you're not going to pay some wack ass prices for a 12yr old used game.
Biggest bummer is I know PkMn Gold is available for a digital download. It is not HeartGold, though. HG had a few good improvements over the original as I am the perfect sucker who not only bought Crystal bundled w/ my first GBC but also scooped SoulSilver (w/ the PokeWalker) when That dropped.
Both are fun games. Beat 'em both, too. Love to hook him up but those prices are Painful. -.-
Wow... I ran a quick search on some old games to see what I can get my nephew. He's a Pokemon fan (Why, yes... I Did corrupt another generation) so I looked for HeartGold & Platinum - two titles he wants & has the equipment to run.
Collector's Market sent those prices from up to $500 for Pre-owned. Lowest I've found 'em is between $60 & $70. -.-
Not too shabby. My back isn't quite feelin' it right now but I got the next strip (read: The strip after the next new one that will hopefully post in December) set up to sketch later. I am going to stop & stretch to make sure I'm not destroying myself any more for a bit.
[Insert pic of the dude & the butterfly reading "Is this Progress?"]
So glad I was happy about the progress 'cause Ho Boy! Were my dreams all about how I need to be working right now forever.
I missed not having my comic up on a regular basis. I don't miss the occasional mid-project hard sleep. -.-
For the Curious:
It's AudioStation - the multimedia program I once used on my Packard Bell back in the 90's. I guess someone has kept it up (or made their own vers?) & I'm totally going to give it a shot later.
It's a program I've been hunting down for years afte that old system died but I just could not remember the name for the life of me. Thanks to an LGR vid, I caught the name, ran a search & now here we are. = )
Is this me setting up my possible procrastination being blamed on the RIAA 'cause they're passing out DMCA takedowns to streamers like candy off a parade float?
Yes. Yes , it is. It's why I wrote this. o.O
