orona_red discovered one of the coolest competitions ever to have been conceived in the history of humanity: Design a Sex Toy. Winner gets their design into production, and £1,000. Open to anyone over 18, regardless of location. The judging should be fun.. ^_^
Two pics mycroftb came across on FA, well worth a look: A Convenient Encounter and Guitar HerOH MY!, neither worksafe, but so easy on the eyes..
ristin might like to watch this brief clip rummy_raccoon noticed.
Looking at the LJ console reference guide, there are some references I don't quite get - are they archaic, or forthcoming? e.g.
Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to be a comprehensive list, as it doesn't include the command I was looking for - how to opt out of having one's posted images (excluding posts tagged as private) from being automatically included in LJ's latest.bml file, which is polled by various LJ spiders that automatically slurp said images. I'm okay with that, but others might not be. In case you're wanting to disable that, go to the console, and enter:
set latest_optout yes
Even now, decades after its original creation by Ron Grainer and Delia Derbyshire (the Radiophonics Workshop wizard who actually strung it together, somewhat literally - bear in mind samplers didn't exist at the time, so each note was the result of tape played at different speeds, recorded, and those segments taped together. For every note. Then add all the various effects tracks..), the Doctor Who theme remains one of my favorite modern compositions. It achieved its goal superlatively, evoking a futuristic setting, but also inherently unfamiliar ground, eerie.. the theme's gone through many versions in its time, but at the end, they all hold a degree of fidelity to the original, as sophisticated as they've become. Listen to it now. Isn't it a marvel?
On the comics front, I was shocked to read that Lea Hernandez' ("Most know Lea as the brilliant creator of such works as Rumble Girls and Cathedral Child. She drew the Marvel Mangaverse Punisher book, and has drawn for Transmetropolitan, among many other accomplishments.") house half burned down, with the loss of two dogs and four cats. Tipjars are being requested, or, you can PayPal something directly.
Okami finally sees its release - for the PS2 - next Tuesday. That's one title I really wish could see a simultaneous PSP launch.
Odd dream.. I was looking out over a harbor bay, and a police van drove straight off the edge of the road on the opposite side, but landed without a bump, and just carried on towards me. [cut to next scene] I noticed a small radio-controlled armored vehicle, the size a hobbyist might play with, where I was standing, apparently wanting to get into the next room. So, I lifted up the door (top hinged), and it went through. Turns out a fugitive was hiding, and they were able to trap him as a result of my minor assistance. I was invited along to celebrate at the station, and of course, brought Hyzenthlay along so I could make a LJ entry of it. I was quite disappointed when I woke up. :-P
Hee! Seems there's going to be a series of stamps in Japan, celebrating BioHazard/Resident Evil's 10th anniversary. ^_^
