Frankly, as far as I'm concerned, I have no problems with you selling out and retiring happy, just so long as you don't pull a Metallica. You keep below the bar Lars and Co set, and we cool yo.

Finally hit me what I look like!(kinda)
trouble describing a very metaphysical kintype appearance
Reply with quote Report this post

I was trying to figure out what I look like inside I guess, and it's hard because I don't really have a set form so much as a sort of resting level which is generally a tiger, but not necessarily an existing sort of physical breed so much as a demon that's just off the level of having a biological body so much as a metaphysical body. So... shadowy. I want to describe what I look like inside though so it doesn't necessarily matter to my identity what I look like but it's nice to say here goes:
It hit me that a good way to explain the colour is that I look kinda like a pale tiger with pale stripes, but in inverted colours. pale tan/grey on dark shadow grey. At most solid "physical" point, the fur is a rich very dark yellowish-grey agouti, with stripes that vary from brownish/less dark shade of grey with hazy edges, to a creamy white with stark borders. More often, when the form is a bit looser, the fur becomes a little shaggy and cloudy and I look more like smoke inside, all shifting dark grey on grey shadows (that's why my first profile pic on here was a snow leopard- the colours and coat length are kinda reminiscent of my shadowy resting form despite not being specifically a tiger). At times my form flares up and shapeshifts into a different animal, and at these times and occasionally when my spirit is just in that zone I guess, I become very pale and even shiny white with dark hints, like an inversion of my most pronounced tiger form. My stripes don't really sit still or stay in one shade but kinda ripple like fire or shifting smoke. My spirit doesn't shift from being a tiger very much (shifts to bird or dragon mostly), but when it does the colouration is very white and sort of pale coffee tones of shining-white-brown, so very very different to the appearance of my inner self at resting point.
...
So I want to know, Do others with a shape-shifting or metaphysical kintype have this kind of hard-to-describe form? I imagine some angelkin have trouble describing themselves. I don't know much about (humanoid I guess) demon kin but I imagine we're similar in some respects? Smile

My stars are for your impression of Mr Zombie. As someone who has also seen Rob live, that impression is SPOT ON.

The go-go dancers and the backdrops and the giant-head wearing midgets were all cool, but fuck, by the time he was a solo act he literally could not sing more than three words without pausing for breath.

He starts off with some good points. For the first couple paragraphs, he's actually making sense. Theeeen it starts getting a bit, uhhhh, whatever, yadda yadda, sure Glenn Beck. You're losing me here.

But then paragraph seven, sentence two hits, and holy shit, things get AWESOME.

Thank you for that, Lurchi.

Or, consider a reverse case. I like the Monkees! Many people, however, do not. The main criticism leveled against the Monkees, the reason why most people dislike them, is because they were seen as being a prototype for modern, manufactured pop bands.

But this criticism is based on image! It has nothing to do with the *music* itself. The fact that Micky may not have actively participated in the crafting of all of his songs, no more changes the actual *sound* of these songs than, say, the fact that he happened to have a girl-winning smile.

Now this is not to say that such image-focused criticism is completely without merit - if you need your musicians to appear authentic, then bully on you, I guess! But for someone like myself, an individual whose primary concern lies with the music, we are able to overlook these things and enjoy the Monkee's music for what it was: catchy, finely-crafted 60s rock n' roll.

Either way works! You are not bad if your tastes are shallow and you cannot appreciate the Monkees' oeuvre, on the grounds that you don't think they behaved properly.

I'd also like to point that you yourself, John, seem to take issue with the idea of a guitarist playing his instrument on a very short strap. That is an inage-based concern! You think it looks weird, and it hampers your ability to be entertained. And Golly, Mister Wislon, that's OK! You're perfectly entitled to feel that way about guitar straps, because music is about entertainment, and entertainment is about way more than just how the music sounds.

Since Mr Napoleon is handling things nicely on the "But John, MTV is no longer relevant" front, I'd like to veer off for a minute and say that I, for one, see nothing wrong with people picking musical artists based on their looks.

Music isn't just about music; it's about entertainment. And different people have very different priorities when it comes to consuming entertainment. It's a very subjective world - what entertains you may be trite and irritating to someone else - and I don't see the point to imposing my own set of aesthetic principles in anyone else. *I* don't pick my musical artists based on looks, I pick my music based on other factors, things like the raw technical skill of the artist (because I'm a bit of an elitist), or the lead singer's ability to cleave penguins in half. But looks are nice, too! Sexy looking musicians are understandably quite entertaining in and of themselves, and if that's the sort of thing which some other picker-of-artists wants to consume, then they should go for it! There will always be room in this world for sex-driven image-music, like Elvis, The Beatles, Britney, or Bowie, just as there is always room for the more refined, cerebral acts that *I* love; GWAR, Liszt, Mr Bungle, BABYMETAL.

In short, it's pointless to insist that one's own set of aesthetic priorities are the only ones the global market can sustain. Hate the playahs, but not the game.

Monkey nails it. MTV weeded the best looking people of music, but then the internet weeded the MTV out of music, so I, for one, am quietly optimistic. The hoary old music industry acted as the sole gatekeeper of musical culture for decades, but the only reason they got away with their bullshit was because there were no real alternative channels for people, young or old, who wanted to consume music. The Industry controlled all access points: radio, TV, and later, record distribution. They could decide who got airplay and who didn't, who got signed and who got forced to be a studio musician. The worst that would happen is dissatisfied consumers would grumble quietly to themselves, but then they'd listen anyway, because what the fuck else were you going to do? NOT listen to the only radio station the FCC allowed in your town?

Nowadays, though, anyone - from sexy rock stars to fat old spinsters with awful BO and fifty cats - can record whatever music they fancy, and distribute it to a global audience with the press of a few buttons. That's something that's *never* been possible before, not during the RIAA era and certainly not during the largely music-less pre-radio period. So don't be glum, JHMF, the butt-ugly Cowsills you knew and loved may still make a comeback!

WTF is a countetat? *Country* music.

11/18/14, 16:30

Plenty of people hold their guitar high on the chest. It's not very common these days, since the MTV generation considers it a bit hokey and lame, but you saw it a lot back in the day (particularly with early rock and countetat music), and even today, playing like that is hardly unheard of (John Petrucci, anyone?). I mean, hell, take a look at this:

http://www.pixelpopgraphics.com/photos/JohnLennon_Ej160e-001.jpg

John Lennon, from the Beatles. Jacking the Cowsills' swag, apparently.

I don't know if you play guitar; if not then, I guess I can understand why you're confused. But on the other hand, you ARE old, old enough to have seen stuff like this before, so honestly I'm a bit surprised you don't think holding guitars way up high on your chest like Grandpa Lennon used to do is the proper way to go about things, and all these low-slung guitar kids running around today need to PULL UP THEIR PANTS. guitars.

Anyway, Veronica playing keyboard isn't even a "thing", John. You might as well argue that the Archies are actually based off of Rammstein, or even Mozart, because hey! Somebody's playing a keyboard!

So no, you've only got two reasons for making this connection, and both of those reasons are dumb.

Yeah, I was going to say, Hot Dog looks a bit like you! Not the same breed, I'd wager (no idea what Hotdog is supposed to be) but there's still a certain resemblance.

Does he talk on the show or in the comics?

Thanks! I thought it was cool, too. It's always neat to see what the wage-slaves behind cheesy mass-market stuff like Archie get up to on their own time; I can imagine that if you're an artist whose work-day consists of pumping out stodgy material for a licensed IP created by some other now-rich douchebag fifty years ago, the temptation to misbehave must be enormous!

11/18/14, 14:22

o How are they holding their guitars "in a funny way"? You mean, like with a strap?
o Susie Cowsill doesn't have a tamborine, and that's totally not the same dance.
o "And so on", that's only two. You've still got three members of the Archie band unaccounted for, and the two you've analyzed so far are unconvincing at best.

I can see the Partridge Family in this - I actually thought they might be a Partridge Family rip-off band at first, but apparently it was the other way round - but I remain skeptical as to the validity of your Archie hypothesis.

I think any "visual echoes" you may see between these two shows (what is The Cowsills? I assume this was a show?) can be simply chalked up to "the 1960s".

Hey, sort of off-topic, but do you guys remember awhile back, when I was discussing that grimdark anti-brony pony artist, Curt Sibling, the dude who created Hitler Pony, and how Mr Sibling's work, while good, struck me as being overly derivative of this underground comic book artist I used to like, who was somewhat notorious for drawing bizarre punk-rock incest porn comics in an art style HEAVILY reminiscent of old-school Archie comicbooks? Only I couldn't for the life of me remember his name?

Anyway, YEAH, I finally figured out who that guy was!!! His name is Frank Strom. Apparently the whole "uncanny resemblance to Archie" thing was no an accident, as he actually worked at Archie Comics! For a little while, at least; I think they might have fired him, and maybe that led to all his Archie-themed incest porn comics. I don't know. That's probably what I'd do, at least. Even more interestingly, while Mr Strom did not work directly on any of Archie Comics' flagship *Archie* titles, he has worked on a number of rather high-profile comicbook tie-in series, including The Animaniacs, The Looney Tunes, Johnny Bravo, Hong Kong Foeey, Elvira (both porn and not porn), the Powerpuff Girls, and ***drumrool badabadabada*** SONIC THE HEDGEHOG. His contributions to Sonic the Hedgehog canon include the Dragon Kingdom and Li Moon the Azn Fox.

So that was kinda cool.

Oh what a surprise.

I acknowledged Egypitan architecture already; in fact, I brought it up before you did! Flat-ceilinged roofs do sometimes exist, but surviving examples are rare, and are found in small chambers, where the ceiling is low and the walls are close enough together to act as pillars, or else they are coupled with pillars. "Decent-sized" flat-ceilinged chambers do *not* exist, not without pillars, many, MANY pillars, and even then such chambers can only be made medium-sizeish due to the limitations of non-arched load-bearing roofs. Perfect example - consider the Egyptian pyramids. Here is a cross-section of the Great Pyramid at Giza:

http://etc.usf.edu/clipart/58900/58995/58995_giza_pyramid_lg.gif

Note that for all the massive size of the damn thing, there are only a handful of passages within it, and these passages are tiny, cramped, almost catastrophic. What's more, many of these passages actually have rough-hewn arches, to wit:

https://c1.staticflickr.com/7/6169/6215673543_0931ed01e6_z.jpg

...or else they are built with the sort of triangular, tapered pseudo-arch common to many surviving Egyptian buildings:

Disbelieve all you want, but you cannot escape Science.


Anyway, Hazelnut makes some good observations and brings up some great ideas, and at this point, I'd ask you to refer to Mr Nut's second post.

Dungeon ceilings - a flaw in design

His thesis is that you can't have flat *CEILINGS* under heavy load, not walls, and assuming that was a typo on your part and not what you actually meant to argue, then the issue posed by your picture has already been addressed. The chambers in some ancient buildings, particularly pre-Roman buildings such as certain parts of Petra, tend to be very small, very squat, and supported by pillars (we can see all of this at work in the picture you posted). There is a reason why the few surviving ruins of this type tend to have very little in the way of subterranean features! Certainly not the complex, multi-layered chambers of your average D&D dungeon.

It should also be noted that even within the Petra complex itself, flat ceilings are hardly the norm! For example:

Arches are not something Lloyd just "made up"; there is real science behind them, and they are critical subject for archeologists - like Lloyd himself (I admit that he has a habit of making bold pronouncements on subjects he knows very little about, but archeology *is* the subject he's qualified on, both academically and professionally). If you doubt science, if think arches are a hoax, then you need to do more than post a single picture you failed to understand, like "a FLAT CEILING in Petra", or "a picture of the moon landing with FAKE SHADOWS".
