I love that phrase! "Aerosol-ed" Too funny!

LOL! Well, it does appear, to some, that I have lived up to that rule.

:lol: Love that last line. :-)

And you now have a great setting for a group shot of all 5 main characters. ;-)
That being said I do like the current background pic featuring Spitfire. :-)

Thank you! };]

I wish I could do more renders like that, but that simple picture took an entire day to do. The program froze up my computer twice. Then the render itself took well over an hour to do. Not sure what your screen resolution is, but mine is only 1280x768. I rendered that at 1920x1080 as I figured that should cover most everyone. So I can only see part of that image on my screen. What I am getting at, is that if your resolution is high enough, you may be able to see "Morgan" standing in the background...? He is actually a very low resolution model, and if you could see him from the front, he is butt ugly! Hence, the reason he is back in the dark and facing the other way! };] I SO need a new computer! Anyway, by the time I arrange lights, props, figure, and pose, and render five or six times at the very least, to make adjustments and such... You see where this is going... I could maybe composite two characters together in photoshop, but still time consuming. This is mainly why, most images I post will just be Spitfire and her outfits...

Sorry Pdx, wrong choice of words earlier; I meant to say "...while you're online" - as you were when I wrote the post. I would have been disappointed (along with many others) if you had 'gone'.

Caught up with the story. Love the line about the Lev Bike and the divorce :D And certainly Bee's exhibitionism has blossomed :wink: ...but if you're going to make a name for yourselves in the Ooniverse, it ought to be something memorable :P

Now my heart rate can come down a bit with the family get-together and another wedding! :mrgreen:

Thank you!!! The lev-bike has gotten out of hand, but... I think it's punchline is coming up soon though.

I would like to think, that in a perfect world, without all the hypocrisies,the self righteous, the "moral" majorities, etc... That all girls would be like Spitfire. Innocent, honest, open, loving, mischievous, free spirited, etc. She reminds me, of Dean Yeagle's "Mandy" character. Just an innocent lust for life. If I die and come back as a cute little pixie like girl... I'm gonna make all the boys cry! };] :lol:

Ahh *nods* fair enough.

As it happens I'm running at 1024x600 on this machine, so I normally see even less of it in the background than you do. I did however load the picture directly so I could see the whole thing (scaled) without the text obscuring it, so I did notice the figure in the background... I just never considered it might be Morgan. :lol:

That was my intent, but as homely as that model is, that is the best I could do. };] Besides, with figures like Spitfire (Victoria 4.2) to play, as well as her outfits. Who wants to waste time and hard drive space, on male models and clothes. };]

Hiya,

1) Satanism in D&D and rock music: As I hear it, if you play a certain Justin Bieber song backwards you will hear a message from Satan urging you to commit ritual suicide. Even worse, if you play it forwards you will hear a song by Justin Bieber.

2) Captain Gary Stu and Miss Fanservice: This was a humorous reference to the Adventures of Captain Morgan. "Gary Stu" is the male version of "Mary Sue" - the author avatar for whom everything important goes right and who is always right even if sometimes unappreciated. "Miss Fanservice" is any gratuitously hot female character brought in to pander to the male audience (see Seven Of Nine and others)

I'll wait until I get home to catch up on the latest episodes - I'm behind a French proxy server here and it seems to have been alarmed by some of the links...!

Most games have some sort of paddling-pool-and-water-wings beginning to ease you in: Oolite takes the rather more Darwinian approach of heaving you straight into the ocean, often with a brick or two in your pockets for luck. ~ Disembodied

Heh. Anthropology's not really my subject, but I really don't believe that any majority culture in the world has ever had girls like this be the rule, self-righteous, moral majorities or whatever notwithstanding. An enjoyable fantasy, but while I'm wishing, I'll have my own private spaceship and a comfy living trading furs and booze for computers, thank you. :)

Ahhh okay. Between this and Dizzy's links, I understand now!

I wonder if it's the mature content warning? Add Block Plus only reports 1 blocked add on any of my pages... weird.

LOFL Well, I did state "in a perfect world" And the world has never been perfect, ergo...

However, it just occurred to me, that those of a religious mindset, do believe the world was perfect at one time. And what was happening at this time? Both boy and girl were running through the Garden De Eden, naked and carefree! };]

Hmmm Spaceship Eden... has a nice ring to it! };]

Last panel.....

doki doki kawaii.... can someone please inform me as to what the hell I'm looking at? It appears to be eyebleedingly pink and vaguely sexualized. Other than that I'm getting nothing, other than huge grins, some v for victories, I am very, very confused. Is there actually a meme here? Or have we all been using the colour clash cannon to dress ourselves again?

LOL! Ya, not the comics I grew up with either. I know kawaii stands for "cute" more or less in Japanese culture, but the style... not so much my thing. They are somewhat funny though, once you understand the Mary Sue meme.
