Finally! An excuse to use the Marquee tag again...

t u m b l e w e e d

There will be a final movie on here, some day. I promise! For now, please imagine the sound of howling winds while watching the tumbleweed...

Alas, yesterday I skipped making a comic. I feel ashamed, and also tempted to explain why. Well, actually I should say I want to rationalize why. I had one of those days where you think it's a different day. So all Wednesday I actually worked and lived under the impression it was Tuesday. Hence, I 'forgot' to post.

Also, seeing as I'm somewhat losing my interest in WoW, I'm thinking of replacing this blog-project with a new project. I have some ideas, but any input is highly welcome!

Rest assured I will (try to) go out with a bang, though I'm not sure whether that will be done this Sunday or perhaps a little later. When it's done I'll be sure to let all my lurker-fans know through the available channel!

Oh, and apart from rationalizing, I was caught in the Stumble-o-sphere all Wednesday. Thinking of making a petition to make StumbleUpon illegal, it's just plain evil technology!

Super Mario

Bored with WoW itself, I figured it'd be fun to introduce Guy Montag to some other games. Excited about the WoW model viewer program, I figured this would be easy. However, as it turns out, the program is a typical free-time open source project. Very commendable (in fact even: awesome) that people put their free time into the project, but the quality is not so great.

I had a great idea to work a model into an actual level of Super Mario Bros 1, but after five hours of work all I had was this animated GIF:

So I'm leaving you, my faithful few viewers, with this sad, small animated GIF. Be careful though, those lists of animated gifs can be awfully addictive.

Now to think of a nice and proper final 10th video for this blog (suggestions highly welcome)...

Nature's calling

When I started my blog I intended to make my comics and movies mainly about Guy Montag being rude to other characters. For so far I have accomplished that goal it was mainly through making fun of druids. So why stop now?

Ygdrasil rightfully commented it should've been shot from the side or 'en profil' to make it look more like Manneken Pis from Brussels. Alas I asked her opinion too late (when I was near finished) so I hope readers still got the clue without having to read the rest of the post.

Of course a big thank you to the druid that was willing to pose for this week's comic. Not sure if (s)he wants to be in the credits with full character name, but nonetheless: lovely and timely help, muchos gracias!

In other yet non-druid related news: Guy Montag is now level 81! Ding!!

Account expiry

No epic storyline this week, but more a short machinema to show my mental state concerning WoW at this moment. It did allow me to play with the WoW Model Viewer. Took a little while to get used to the program (not to mention finding your way through the maze of available downloads), so the result is short:

The model viewer thing is pretty fun actually. Next week I think I'll try to figure out how to chain animation sequences in it.

Oh right, and perhaps I should actually play Guy some this week as well.

Edit: oh WoW, my link to the Throne of the Four Winds "Strategy Guide" on Wowhead has been deleted without notice. I should make more movies that get downrated, removed and generate hate-mail :D.

Spring coming yet?

The afternoons are sunnier than they've been for long, hurray! I already tried to get "Spring's here" retweeted two weeks ago, but when is spring finally really here?

Not sure if it's the winter gloom, but I'm kicked off WoW a little at the moment. I do like the occasional guild heroic run or raid, but apart from that I'm not online much. Well except of course to create comics and machinema :D.

Last night I got Dead Space on Steam, to see if installment 2 will be worth it too in a bit. The commercial for Dead Space 2 was hilarious, either way. Great game so far, although the game did make me a little dizzy (literally) at times.

The (not so serious) "break 1" movie drew quite a few reactions as I posted it as a "Strategy video" on Wowhead. Seeing I'm pressed for time this weekend, I decided to quickly throw together a Blinkjump tutorial.

Can't help it, but I think this is the most awesome Mage ability :).

See ya Wednesday!

World of What?

Anyone reckon that new MMORPG will ever be made? There's been plenty of talk about it... just none by Blizzard.

Shame I've kinda stopped playing Starcraft, really. Scared to go back now, surely in the Gold league I would get my ass kicked (if you think being a "clicker" in WoW's bad, try SC2).

Either way, WoW's quickly losing its attractiveness too. I still enjoy our Guild chat, the occasional raid or heroic, but I'm tempted to try a few other games too. See many folks play Magicka lately, but would you recommend it to someone who hates Diablo II?

Procrastination Guide

Damn! I was busted by a faithful commenter last post. No use denying anymore then: I was late. But, better late than never! I guess seeing it's past midnight and I'll be posting this on Tuesday it deserves its own entry.

I'm very happy about the speed at which I'm learning this new stuff. Today I played around with Audacity too, just for the sake of it. However, I'm still not quite satisfied with the quality of my machinema scripts. But on that subject I'll take the great Oxhorn's advice: It can happen that you have a bad streak of machinma. Don't worry, it happens. The trick is to just keep making 'em. So here goes nothing:

Either way, I am very satisfied with my few but fanatic fans implicitly veto-ing the Archeology guide (/phew!) and wanting the others. I'm not sure yet how to meet Barnacles' request of "All of em, at the same time", but we'll see...

Stay tuned for more folks! I know I will :D

PS. Yeah, I know. The cursor is showing in my footage :(. Installed a new version of Fraps, and I didn't notice until it was too late. Oh well...
