This space for rent...
"I'm rendering cheesecake.
And scanning the front page...
All of those forums just flaming away...
And I'm thumbing my keyboard,
Just nursing some downloads...
And if I'm not in the Hot20 there'll be hell to pay.
Wasting away again at Renderosity...
Searchin for my lost trains of thought
Some people claim theres a Vicki to blame.
But I know
It's all Michael's damn fault. ;]
Well there may be a reason
I've kicked back all season
With nuthin to show but a render in Vue,
But it's a real doozie
Of a millenium floozy
With the sales from the store I can afford me a clue.
Wasting away again in Renderosity
Searching for all the freestuff I need.
And some people claim there's a posette to blame...
But now I think
It just might be Vicki's fault.
Well it's all there for the taking
I'm an AOM in the making
If I could just figure out how to paint hair and shoes...
Well I'm a big spender
And with these purchases will render
That winning creation that'll ensure I can't lose.
Til then I'm
Wasting away again at Renderosity
Until the postman brings me my T-Shirt and hat..
Some people claim that there's nobody to blame,
But I'm not fooled -
It's all FastTraxx's fault. ;]
Yes and some people claim that there's a Vicki to blame,
But I know
It's all CuriousLab's fault. "
Apropos of absolutely nothing whatsoever...
What... you expected mebbe something profound? From THIS column? Get real. *snicker*
Just happened to be listening to Jimmy Buffet while typing, and well... you just saw what that does to you. Let's just hope I'm not in a Black Sabbath or Alice Cooper mood next week. ;]
We might wind up with "Forums wear boots" up here.
Nuthin personal, Ken... it jest happend to scan better that way. ;]
You'll have to forgive the brief excursion into absurdity here. Or not, as you please...
I think on occassion, we tend to take this whole online community and experience thing just a we bit too seriously. Some of us anyway. Not me... I seldom take much seriously, including my self.
Heh heh. Someone who continually argues possession of his computer with a pair of cats had best have a sense of absurdity. ;]
Maybe comes from having a lot of my earlier online experiences shaped by trolling old bbs's and news groups with people like Kibo. I was indoctrinated early into the wierd side of the web. Things just got worse over the years as I found myself wandering various gaming sites and other places with people who were just as warped in the humour dept as I am.
I guess that's why these days, it's just tough for me to treat earth shattering problems like advertising in the poser gallery, and other suchlike. You get used to viewing things with a certain skewed perspective...
Gives me a real hard time dealing with the type of mentality that takes everything and everyone with deathly seriousness and gravity. And makes it hard for me to treat those subjects with all the gravity and seriousness they truly deserve...
Or, some might make a case that I do. ;]
Oh well. Be that as it may... just remember the next time the big site crisis of the week comes up [whatever it is]:
Somewhere's out in the forums, there's someone like me.
Lurking in the darkness with a rubber chicken and a raspberry. *snicker*
Until then... Sherman Barnes
