I am indeed indebted to ducktapeddonkey for noticing this.. first came the vibrator, and now, Rabbit Fever - the Movie (caution: audio auto-starts). And as Germaine Greer is quoted in the trailer, "Rabbits are good at pleasure". =:)


I'd seen Tintin and the Red Sea Sharks, and there've been some other quite good animated adventures, but I'd never known of Tintin et la Toison d'Or until recently. It's a wonderfully authentic adaptation, with the cast being uncanny resemblances of their characters - sadly, no English subtitles appear to exist currently, but it's great fun even catching but a part of what's said. ^_^

patch_bunny pointed out the trailer for The Bridge - a look at one of the most famous bridges in the world, of supreme elegance, and here, the destination for some seeking an exit from this world.

When eBay takes over your life.. is this how giro_batol will wind up? =:)

And pic for the day has to be UltraViolet's shiny rendition of andysquirrel, over here. NSFW.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Eight pictures down in the crazy ebay mom story, the kings and queens on the desk thing are a set of chocolates, that I sell. X.x Can't escape historic royal palaces
I'm guessing you're not going to let him know that. =:)

Gods, I can barely imagine what it'd be like trying to live there.. collecting is one thing, but collecting old medicine bottles and years-old cereals?
I practically *do* live there. At least in my own room. I keep anything which may be of use at some point in the future, or anything I attach sentimental value to - and I attach sentimental value to things like a paedophile handing out candies. X.x

I only throw things away when my boyfriend threatens to stop coming to see me until he can see the carpet in my room. :P I own roughly 2,500 books, and can pretty much trace the evolution of my ability to read all the way back down to See Spot Run.

Hee! I know someone who collects a lot, but that's mostly just paper - lots and lots of artwork, and not a few magazines and articles. And games, oh yes. ^_^ Remarkably, the place undergoes quite a transformation when other furs gather there - there's still a lot around, but a surprisingly number of warm bodies can fit inside the house then and still have room to mingle. Sleeping can be a little problematic, though, but that's not what gatherings are for. ^_^

I wish I had all the books I once did, as well as the electronics and computing magazines - but, unknown to me at the time, my mother was "keeping things tidy" for me. :-P Add in lots of moves, some longer distance than others.. still, at least it all means moving is feasible. Ah, to be able to settle somewhere I want to remain.. maybe I can go for a full-body lapine transformation, and have someone nice buy me and take me home with them.

See Spot Run

How did it end?
Ooh - I had heard of the live-action Tintin, but that shot of Calculus is fantastic!

I need a Tintin icon.
I may even get around to watching it tonight, or early this week - but they really did seem to do an excellent job on the casting, ne? Even down to the shape of Calculus' head!

Hmm. I wonder if there's such a thing as a Tintin RPG.. seems like the kind of setting that could make for a rum adventure, full of swashbuckling, shady Eastern European agents, and amiable Latin American dictators. What's not to love?

I want to see Doctor Who meet the Thompson Twins.

Oh, gods. Now I'm thinking of the latter as Cybermen. That's so wrong.
That eBay Mom could probably get a lot of her money back through resales if only she could get over her purchasing obsessions.

Reminds me a bit of the bag of eBay selling stock I bought yesterday, as yet unlisted.
Magnetic therapy kit
Sculptors knives
Cd label pack
Stoned Jamaican Man Cigarette case
Darts
Watercolour pad
Ink stamp & ink pad
Watercolour paint set
Oh, undoubtedly! eBay has such reach that it can unite buyers and sellers of just about any stripe; the width of the web means there's probably a collection of mailing lists or forums for any given interest. (Except cybernetic transformations - those usually fit onto one of the broader TF fora, like EMCSA, LTBSA, or TGF) The USPS might have to open a temporary sub-office in her yard, though.. ^_^

Magnetic therapy kit, for happy magnets!

How awkward is selling on eBay? I've bought a couple dozen items there over the years, but never sold anything. The pricing looks fairly convoluted, being based on just about every conceivable parameter of the auction.
Now that the po have changed the model for postage its going to make things hard on both ebay and amazon sellers. And isn't going to be good for the environment either, I have access to un unlimited supply of 3rd hand jiffy bags, but it is cheaper for me to buy new ones and ship under 25mm, then to recycle and ship as a standard parcel. And some lines i'm going to stop selling all together.
Being used makes that much difference in size? If so, you might try dropping the mighty Bureau des Postes a line, and ask them to consider that in their next calculations - and don't underestimate the power a word from your MP can have, either. It may not be the largest concern facing the planet, but a letter or two would easily be warranted.

A classic quote to preserve for the ages! :)

Selling on eBay is simple to begin with. Mastering the art of listing in order to get better sales performance takes a while but that's part of the fun.

Seller listings generally follow these formats:

Auction (where you place a bid for an item)

Buy It Now (buy it and it's yours)

Shop (you pay about £7 a month to have an online store but items you list have fees of about 5p for 30 days instead of up to 50p for 7 days in a Buy It Now listing, the catch being that Shop listings appear below BIN listings in search results and so are less visible to buyers)
Looks at large bag of 2600 games bought at least 6 weeks ago.

Ditto!

Or at least enter it into turbo lister so its ready for the next 5p listing day!
At least nobody's releasing a new Atari system with downloadable back catalogue, so you've still got a chance of offloading 'em!
I still kinda like the shiny Andy Squirrel pic that he uses for his avatar. WOO SHINY! XD
Mmmm, fluffy and shiny. Must cost a fortune in fur conditioner. ^_^

Of the ones on his profile page, I think I'd also choose the first, for that expression, and the third, for utter shiny cuteness.

I wonder if I could persuade BA to draw me someday.. he's especially good with lapines, though he does rather too few of them. Or any species, for that matter.. presumably he's got one of these "life" things I hear about. Maybe Amazon sells them?
Oh. Wow. Man, I wonder how much space she's save by taking things out of boxes..... well, that, and now I no longer feel so bad about collecting so much anime, and letting stuff pile up in my room... nowhere close to _that_ bad yet.
Do you still have these "VHS" things I hear about? (Video, on tape? It'll never catch on) Amazing how much of a difference DVDs/DVD-Rs make, especially with slimline cases or paper sleeves.. especially with commercial anime, where two episodes per tape seemed common. :-P Pity Birdy the Mighty and Fairy Princess Ren never went beyond that many - I loved the idea of BdM, and FPR was just gloriously manic.

At least I'll be able to use some of the boxes I've been collecting today - time to get my room shifted to the new place. Shouldn't be a big matter, given it's a pretty small room - once I've got the DVDs boxed (and the loose ones protected), it's then just the Bits, like a phone cord, some wasabi, a surplus 802.11b card, a Magnolia Cafe beer mat.. ^_^

I'm hoping the line's active in the new place - it should be, so I ought to have at least access to dialup until the DSL goes live there, which should be by Wednesday. (Me, a network addict? Never =:)
(Deleted comment)
But nobody I know seems to've taken photos! *whine*

Well, who knows? If I - or anyone I know - can locate a suitable client, maybe I can get along to the next one. And BunnyJam. ^_^
Fuck FA - it won't let me see the image without logging in, and it won't let me log in *again*. For some reason, this happens pretty much every time I try; I always have to reset it, and I'm not willing to put up with that anymore.

Is there a cosmic rule that states that all art sites (DA, SA, FA etc.) must suck like they're black holes? >_>
Odd - seems fine here, but so it goes. ^_^; I have my cookies from FA set to be kept at all times, though, so I normally don't have to log in again.

I'm still wondering why FA's species pulldown menu offers four kinds of dragon, but nothing for rabbits. It's maybe not a high priority item, but still, that doesn't seem like the most difficult oversight to correct, unless they did something really stupid with the coding, like hardwiring the number of items in that list, along with their meanings. For the most part, though, FA chugs along okay, and its policies remain the most fur-friendly. (cf SA.. ugh, that was sleazy, abruptly cutting out all mature artwork, whatever the motivation)
*noddles* I have cookies set to be kept forever, too, actually. But even if I didn't, I'd expect to be logged out again - not to be told that my password isn't valid.

Oh well.

I still think all art sites suck, myself, and FWIW, there are other sites that do get it right. Take Flickr, for example - it does offer everything you get on DA/SA/FA as well (comments, favourite pictures, contacts (i.e., people you watch), groups and pools, and so on), and it works. And on top of it, the user interface is uncluttered and the site's fast - in other words, it doesn't get into your way all the time. Flickr is *fun* to use.

So it's really about time that Flickr started a new service for things other than photos (Paintr?)...
A Tintin live-action, neato! It's eerily uncanny. Very spooky.
