Weekly Update

quote of the week...

“Everybody likes to go their own way to choose their own time and manner of devotion." —Jane Austen (1775-1817); writer and novelist

I really like this week's quote. I wish my mother would read it, and understand that what works for her does not automagically work for me. Of course, I automatically take this to mean religious devotion; I suppose it could be referring to anything.

current projects...

Well. I leave for con in... 2 days. I have a LOT to do before then. But that's not why you guys are here, right? Right.

That painting I mentioned last week is completed, and I will be doing an 'Artist Process' post about it... once it has reached its final destination and I get the OK to post it online. I believe it is a gift, and I really don't want to accidentally ruin the surprise. (I truly love doing gifts, it's so much fun!)

However! I do have artwork to share!

[WIP] Aurélia New face of cheekitty arts [WIP] Mythological Magnet Trio

future plans...

I am still planning on starting a web serial story, and I will be doing a free icon day around the end of the month. Right now it's difficult planning anything beyond the convention. More next week, I suspect. :)

Also! Next week's update will probably go up on Tuesday morning, since we're driving back from Pittsburgh on Monday. I'll see what I can do as far as posting on time, but... it may be a day late.

happenings elsewhere...

Today is the video edition!

Walking on Water (Liquid Mountaineering - A friend pointed out that they all fall in at the same point, but I found the video interesting nonetheless. I would LOVE to watch Jamie and Adam and the Mythbusters crew take this one on- it's different from their Ninja walk-on-water myths. (Link courtesy of.. dracosphynx? Or was it zilvar? I'm sorry guys, I don't remember!)

The Nostalgia Critic - His tag line is, he remembers movies so you don't have to. Very very funny guy that reviews good and bad movies in video format. My favorite is probably his review of Alone in the Dark, which looks like a truly horrible movie, even before he rips it apart. His counterpart, Nostalgia Chick, is also worth watching. I do warn that their language is probably not child-friendly, so if you have little ones, watch with headphones (There are no adult visuals beyond the ones in the movie). (Link courtesy of roho)

If you have anything you'd like me to feature, or you just think is nifty, be sure to let me know!

So begins another week. I hope you all have a great one!

Heh, I know the Nostalgia Critic personally. He's kind of a jerk. :)

REALLY! We knew he was local, and all thougt we'd love to buy him a beer. But he's unpleasant in person? How so?

In the same way that his character is kind of a jerk, actually. He's a decent sort but grates on me; we joke that if I ever like any of his work, I need to let him know so he can fix it.

Hee. I think he's hilarious, myself. :)

anyway, there's occasional parties that voidness (whom roho knows) throws that he shows up at. They in addition, his brother shows up at fairly regular beer-brewing this at forestdruid's house (who roho also knows). I can let you know the next time these things happen if you want.

Sure! :)

Of course they all fall in the same place. The trick is that the lake flooded an almost flat section of shoreline. The people are stepping on the land making a splash is all. When they reach the end of the shoreline, they dive in. You'll also notice that the camera is always to the side and never moves to where you can see what's under the water's surface since that would give the gag away.

Well, yes. I realize that, but it was still interesting. :)
