Electron Ramsey

This is the third official picture I've done of Electron Ramsey. The third unofficial one was on the Snipe Sketch oekaki. The second one is the one labeled "Electron Ramsey 1999", and the first one is no good. Anyways, I didn't name this one "Electron Ramsey 3" because I didn't want people to think it was the third incarnation of the character. There is only one.

One of the iconic superheroes of Snipe Hunt Media's premiere super-team, the American Furies. According to the Furies' public relations information packet, Electron Ramsey took over the mantle of leadership after the death of the team's original leader, Anthem. The origin of his powers are shrouded in mystery, but many think he channels his powers from the thunder gods of old. He seems to have an inexhaustible supply of electrical energy, which he uses to protect the innocent and uphold the law.

Ugly little spud, isn't he?

For whatever reason - we'll assume Replay infected me with something, somehow - when I got home, this fellow came out of my arm and into the tablet. As the sketching commenced, I already had in mind what kind of highlights and transparencies I would want to do later on in the process. 

I think I may do a whole series like this, with other ghosts like Haunter and Misdreavus. Suggestions are welcome.

Home again, home again, jiggity jog

After a grueling sixteen-hour drive, I am back home at my terrible desk. Ten pounds heavier, a little more tan, and with some dark roots showing under my way-too-blonde hair.

I can't blame Booyah's mother entirely for the weight gain; I think I must have grown some muscles in the pool, as I now have some extra energy for simple things like reaching the fan switch from the toilet. Normally this would have taken a great deal of effort, and I might have cried a little.

My awful neighbors were evicted while I was gone, and now I have a nice view to the much nicer trailer that was on the other side of them. It's like a little intangible gift.

The TV at breakfast shows me CBS's Saturday morning fare, and, by extension, everything that is wrong with the world.

Bedding down at the Hampton Inn in Mt. Juliet. Lovely town. Taco Bell for dinner marks the end of a long day.

The time, it does fly.

Snipe Cons pass all too quickly, but I've had fun during this one. Here's some bullet points:
  • Got a Deoxys for my Pok√©mon game at the GameStop this weekend.
  • Finished principle photography for two Snipe Hunt videos.
  • Ate many a food at many a place and in many a variety.
  • Went on a night time adventure to find a Kinko's...
  • ... only to discover that what we needed to copy was left at home.
  • Got to meet my old friend Replay, outside of his native England for his first trip to the U.S.
  • Placed second in a Super Smash Bros. Brawl tournament.
  • Placed second in the Snipe Hunt Invitational Trivia Exposition.
And fulfilled my outlandish promise to stay in the swimming pool all night long. (I get to swim so rarely.) Pretty soon I have to hit the old dusty trail, where my plump leg will cause me no end of troubles. Maybe some day I will start using airplanes, but probably not.

Arf arf

Dallas's China Town is really something. Earlier, I saw a motorcycle with two wheels in front - no photo, sorry. Enjoy a temple dog, instead.

Hangin' with Mister Booper

Just killin' some time with Booyah while we wait for Bravo Team to get back from GameStop.

Congrabulations! I grabulated!

Booyah got all the Snipe Con 2008 attendees a gift. Mine was a giant framed diploma from Danger Laboratories. He said it was all well and good for me to give diplomas to other people, but who would give one to me? I think he solved the mystery handily, and I will look forward to hanging this at home.

Pay no attention to my wife's be-pajamaed legs in the reflection.

Crashed into front of house, landed in dining room. Presented with plate of fried fish for my efforts. All worth it.

A little ways outside Little

A little ways outside Little Rock, we stop for sunglasses, postcards, and 3 different flavors of Mountain Dew.

Traffic slowed to a crawl

Traffic slowed to a crawl at mile marker 220 for seemingly no reason... I prefer night driving.

I drove 17 extra miles

I drove 17 extra miles to get to a Hampton Inn after I got tired last night. Is so worth it.

The moon does not shine bright over Lebanon tonight, but I'm stoppan here anyways.

Headed out! We'll see the total travel time based on my bloggan time stamps. End transmission. Bwoop!

One quick note

Is anyone else as pissed off as I am at the extremely shitty way DVDs are packaged these days? The stupid-ass security tape on the top of the DVD either leaves gluey residue, tears off the top of the paper insert, or both. If that wasn't bad enough, they seem to (apparently) glue the cellophane that wraps the entire thing to the spine of the DVD. Infuriating. You can never get it all off. It is getting to the point where I need to just buy a clean, empty DVD case every time I buy a DVD, to transfer the salvageable parts of the new DVD into.

HITTAN THE BRI/x/

Well, in an hour or so I hope to be out the door and on the road. Got to stop at Mom's house to do some upkeep, and then it's down the Interstate we go.

I don't guess we're printing out directions; we'll just let the TomTom do all the work. He sometimes makes some unwise decisions, but he got us there last time.

The MAX Virus puppet is about 75% done at this point. Basically what that means is that he's done enough for us to take him on the road and finish him up at Casa de Booyah. I hope to get some good videos made with him, as it has been too long since the video aspect of the "media" at Snipe Hunt Media has been addressed.

Bleached my hair for the con... bleached it a little too well. Now I sort of look like I've been electrified. If I get out in the sunlight, I will probably look like some kind of fat angel with a corona of yellow plasma radiating from his head. Perhaps wearing goggles or sunglasses on my forehead will lessen the effect.

Was hoping to finish Snipe Hunt! #2 before leaving, but I reckon it ain't meant to be. Oh well, there's always time when I get back.

GRINDAN GAEMS

The aforementioned Daimyo is now two for two in Alterac Valley wins. He had nothing to do with them, mind you, but it's still a good spread.

EDIT: Three for three. Now that the initial quests are getting out of the way, I was able to be of some use in Drek'thar's chamber. I also got my [Stormpike Insignia Rank 2].

EDIT: Four for four.

EDIT: Five for five. I'll stop updating at this point. Just continue to assume that the Alliance is unstoppable.

BLOGGAN GAEMS

Well, what can I say. The Lord knows I love Google, and as soon as I learned that Blogger was a facet of that golden company, I knew I had to get one for myself.

Now, I've always been a LiveJournal man. No muss, no fuss. And who wants to try to make all of one's friends migrate over to another blogging service? Regardless, after some research into the process of posting updates from the road for the upcoming Snipe Con 2008 road trip, Blogger was the man of the hour. So here we are.
