The new Catface is done. I must admit it was rather difficult as I'd never done one of these before and they are put together in a way that is very alien for me.
On the creative side of things I haven't been able to do much due to Catface. Today was my first "free" day.
I did however managed to update my Dustbunnies webcomic and also made this drink coaster.
Now you may wonder when looking at this; why buy such a thing? Who would want a drink coaster with a crow on it? Especially one that's 10 bucks? The answer? The answer is I have no idea whatsoever. None.
I had poached eggs for the first time in more than a year yesterday. It was orgasmic. I had forgotten how much I love eggs. Cooked just enough to be solid but with the yolk all runny and gooey. A small dollop of paprika-infused mayo to dip the egg whites in. And a cup of hot earl grey to wash it down with.
My face when eating a meal that good:
The difference being that infant probably has more teeth than me.
Clearly it is a sign that I must buy eggs more frequently.
My favorite website http://dirpy.com died. I am sad and enraged. It was the ONLY youtube-audio-ripping site that WORKED. EACH. TIME. And recorded sound at high quality.
Now I'm stuck using shitty ad-riddled sites like Vixy that never work without 90 trial and error operations.
First singingfish.com dies and now this.
And now to waste both our times garbling about video game bullshit that you couldn't care less about even if Captain Apathy himself rammed his Red White and Blue dick right up your bum.
Team Fortress 2 had 2 important updates today.
The first was the opening of the tf2 beta servers. Where Valve gets to experiment tweaking the new weapons and adding new map features.
First thing they are fixing is Natascha, a weapon that has been rather broken ever since the Heavy speed buff. After that who knows? Perhaps an Airblast jump mechanic for Pyros? A watch that lets you briefly pass through enemy people as a spy at the cost of cloaking? Making the Gunslinger even more godly?
The other thing was they took a mod made by a fan that made painted hats look less plastic and inserted it into the game. How about that? Yellow, orange and purple hats no longer stand out in a hideous way. White hats no longer glow with an unholy bloom that is blinding. Textures and normal mapping remain on colored hats. Makes them fit with the game's dark grey light brown art styles. And now more hats can be painted.
I painted my engineer headphones golden brown. Normally they change colors depending on the team but I figured making them brown would match better. I was right. They look cool as hell.
It's ok to feel jealous.
This all happened today by the way.
So I decided to snap some pics of people in hats from various idle/trading servers today for an hour or so. Hats that normally would look like ASS now look very snazzy and keep their same leathery/wrinkly/filthy textures and bumpmaps.
Behold, snazzy pictures of hats:
you could barely tell this hat had black paint on it before:
brown paint + alien parasite = headcrab
perfect example here. in the past this white pirate hat would have been SOLID WHITE. WITH HIGHLIGHTS. AND BLOOM. Now it looks nice and musty. Hooray for progress:
this one looks too shiny due to this guy standing directly under a lamp:
Anyway now that I've bored you to tears with drivel I'm going to bed.
Give them a fish, they eat for a day.
