scotto monkeypulse

8135 - mishmash monday.

GeotargetDreamt that I was reading a comic book about a superhero/villain who wears a bandoleer of syringes fitted with fins so they act as throwing darts - uses the drugs for various effects, knockout, truth serum, hallucinogens. Not nearly as effective as a gas or launched from a dart gun, but I was asleep, and my subconscious mind wasn't interested in any editorial commentary.

He was fighting "The Collective Man", One of my Favorite old riffs on duplication, run backward - Five brothers who could merge into one guy that had 5x the strength and constitution of a normal man. In emergencies, he could also tap into the combined power of the entire Chinese populace, too, though I have no idea how that worked, even in comic book logic. The strength of a billion men, I guess? I don't think all the Chinese people in the world merged into him when he used that ability, though I think that'd be a pretty interesting proposition.

I have no idea what the guy with the syringe-darts thought he was going to do against CM... I guess he could up the dosage by five if he wanted to pull some shenanigans.

Were breakfast burritos invented in the 80s? My brain associates them being popular right around the time blue became associated with raspberry flavoring, for some reason or another. Actually, I associate them with Beavis and Butthead's "I am Cornholio" weirdness. Unreal what lodges itself in your skull.

Hm. Youtube comes through for me again. It really amazes me that B&B were so popular for so long.. and that knuckleheads actually emulated them to the point where a disclaimer was needed. (Later taken up by the gang at the Jackass tv show)

Hey, Old Ren & Stimpy Cartoons on there, too! I truly loved those before they got played out. Sakes... I burn a lot of time playing at both youtube and google video.

So, the new cartoonist meme is Fat Bat Cat??

Ah Well, Newt's more of a Streaky the Super-cat type, but maybe a little creative work with the palm later on.

Also, a meme I missed the first time, but want to take a shot at - draw yourself as a giant monster.... though mine won't be as good as this one.

Herm is being a sweetheart regarding my delayed return to 2nd Life.. She's holding a Clown Nose Vigil until I return. We'll see what lame excuse they have for me today.

The Endless Forest - Freaky human-faced deer roam around a forest and communicate with body language and roaring. I confess that I will check it out and try it once big brain makes it home. The Ename ruin is a neat idea. (found via peradouro)

Ground Rules:
The first player of this "game" starts with the topic "5 weird habits of yours" and people who get tagged need to write an LJ entry about their 5 quirky habits as well as state this rule clearly. In the end, you need to choose the next 5 people to be tagged and list their names.

1. I carry little trinkets that connect me to things I love. There's a Newt whisker in my palmtop case, and a key to a bike lock that my dad gave me when I was a kid on my keyring. (the lock is long since gone)

2. I don't have a set preference for order of putting shoes and socks on... I put the nearest one on first. I've been told that's odd. I'll do left first, or right first, doesn't matter. also I'll do sock-shoe/sock-shoe or sock-sock-shoe shoe. I also dress in order of convenience.. shirt first/ or pants first, whatever is closest.

3. I think people are physically more or less attractive depending on how much I like their personalities.

4. I talk to kids like they're adults, and they seem to really appreciate it. When I talk to some adults, I'll raise the pitch of my voice a little bit to put them more at ease. This is not deliberate, but habit. it also seems to work.

5. I smile at strangers, and tallly the responses. This morning, I got two good smiles back, five 1000-yard-stares, and three acknowledged but quick look-aways.

I hereby tag - graypumpkin,eryx_uk, kat78731 , flying_blind , and oneeyedcat  (if they want to - no pressure - plus anyone else who wants to do it)
