Inhuman Update!(and the inks are available for both this and last week's page)
first of all, i apologise for never making a blog post last week. it was a hectic week, to say the least. we were supposed to close on the house but due to general fumbling on the part of the mortgage broker, we had to file for extension -again-. We should be closing this week now, but time will tell.
i have much to say and little space to cover it in so let me get through it fast as i can.>> The Nikitak Plush...
I spoke with Patchtogether
and plushes are apparently the hardest thing to get made. we need a minimum (MINIMUM) of 300 positive votes. i'm not sure if we can make this goal, as we're about 130 short. the alternative is that i will make the plushes by hand, which now that i've found the power line for my sewing machine doesn't sound like such a bad deal. alternately, would people be okay with a nikitak sculpture from PT?
let me know your thoughts on this either by commenting here or e-mailing
me. i'm going to leave the tally counter up for a little while still, but i need to redraw it. soooo yeah>> The Shop...
when i was redesigning the site, i took it down again. the issue is...nobody uses google shops. ONE person ordered stickers from it that way, and i can't even figure out how to get their information. i've basicly lost my way back into the shop. someone help me with this so i can refund their money, and person who ordered the stickers please contact me so we can discuss actually getting you your order D:
however, in the next few weeks i'll be changing the shop to emulate Rainbow Cemetery
's refurbished game console shop. aka, just paypal buttons. so hang tight, i know this hasn't been a good year for the shop. things WILL turn around soon.>> Comic Mirrors...
i'm starting a bit of a project to make comic mirrors on various sites (like comicgenesis and smackjeeves) which will update daily with archived pages. basicly the purpose of these mirrors will be to just get a toe in in various comic community websites that by virtue of having my own domain name i've kinda neglected. nobody has to follow/bookmark any of these if they don't want, but i'm writing just to make people aware so nobody thinks i'm getting ripped off.
okay that should do it for the extra-stuff. now, on to the normal stuff.>> fanstuff...
first off, please enjoy that fanstuff has now been split into fanart
. you can get to these by clicking the art & writing tab and selecting either art or writing. and then just saying you want to see other people's stuff vs. mine.
this week (and last week) there was one silly photo edit by Coyote Caliente
, a really cute nikitak by Hush-a-Bye
, a brand new nikitak by Tydusis
, a myche sent with my repaired ipod by Mulder
and Dying Dutchman
drew a nikitak with a giant muffin. mmm muffins...
i also added Dying Dutchman's Ashido minecraft skin and Ravagefox's dancing nikitak icon to the Downloads
.>> site stuff...
obviously, i did a major update on the site layout. i tried to clean it up a little bit, is what it really comes down to. as you poke around you'll see that more or less it's just easier to navigate. this included splitting the archives into the main archives and the side comic archives.
i also added two new links, one to a comic called Judecca
and another to this awesome comic called Skin Deep
. you should A+ check them out.
in addition, wolfwings and kane both got arm-deep in code and fixed the forum!
so it should be working now, yaaaaay>> news...
you heard about it right? RIGHT
? the thing that shakes our very fundamental understanding of the universe? the thing that everyone said shouldn't be possible, and scowled down on scifi fans for believing in? that thing? NO??? well that thing is the speed of light may have been broken
by neutrinos. the speed of light is supposed to be the universal speed limit - things aren't supposed to go over it. but neutrinos keep arriving "earlier" than light speed at CERN. they're looking into it now, and it may take years to either confirm or dispell, but for now you must accept the possibility that light speed CAN be broken.
which pleases me to no end. science fiction almost always predicts science fact. here we have just another example.
speaking of scifi predicting scifact, haven't you ever sat down and thought man - i'd love to see my dreams as a movie. or to imagine my own movie. or to just see people's thoughts visually represented. funny thing, the technology now exists to see brain activity visually represented.
imagine the applications to, say, coma victims. suddenly they can communicate with the outside world again, as long as there's brain activity.
brains are funny things, though. they're extremely powerful but they're also very succeptible to suggestion. and some suggestions can be so subtle they're frankly insidious. it should come as no shock that i DO NOT LIKE whole foods. they're just another big box store masquerading as a folksy earthy healthy foods shop. truth is they're just robbing rich nitwits who want to believe they're "helping the planet" blind. what, you don't believe they're just as corporate as any other entity? maybe you've just been brainwashed by their store interior.
i still say your produce is going to be fresher from a farm stand and your meat fresher from a butcher/fish shop. call me bonkers.
and that's all i got. oh, wait, one more thing :O>> Cameo Alert!Koji & Friends
? Now that's a tv show that'd be educational AND hypercolour!
that's all i got. see y'all next week!
