That was such a sweet poem, BlitzGirl. Image

“Thongumajig” is neat, but I liked “Ongainsayable” too. (Go newpixbot!)

Panning is still painfully slow. Looks like this bump (molpyhill?) that's panning into the frame isn't anything special after all.
Here's an animation update:

Is there a tiny molpy on the rock that just panned into view?

I sincerely hope that you are not that devious molpy, or I may have to subject you to a long and drawn-out panning in return. Possibly using a cast-iron pan. Or maybe just a pancake, to fit the ongoing OTT foodinizing of words.

Molpy up-ish.

Lots of amazing stuff in the last couple pages, that I haven't yet been able to properly enjoy. I've been steambottleishly sick, so much that I didn't internet at all for more than a day, for probably the first time in five years. I'm still not able to properly enjoy ggh's wowterfall gif, even mscha's panimation is more than I can watch yet. Didn't even try taixzo's offering, but I'm sure I'll like it when I do.

Nothing else to do today
Let's build a castle by the sea
There's Time enough for you and I
To make anything we want to

Come sit on the sand with me
And together we will play

Bit by bit we'll watch it grow
Piece by piece we'll build it high
Grain by grain it may seem slow
But we know that Time will fly

Come sit on the sand with me
We've got nowhere else to go

Let us make a picture new
A remarkable display
An ever-changing show
In the shadow of the sea

The sea grows high
It's strange but true
Seems the castle's end is nigh
Nothing else for us to do
But say a final sad goodbye
Pack some bags for just us two

Come away and walk with me
Into lands we do not know

Thank you all for the warm welcome back to the OTT! And thank you, Jose for invoking the summoning circle. I truly think I am a better human thanks to my time in the OTT and it is comforting to be here again.

My heart is warmed to see such awesome creativity and talent still taking place here, long after "The (Thing-That-Shall-Not-Be-Mentioned)!"

Such impressive and glorious music, art, writing, and other offerings of creative energy! It will take much blitzing to get caught up with all that has occurred here since, well... you know...

And unfortunately, my time is a bit limited -- The OTC and OTT took a HUGE chunk of my life during the actual unveiling, and I know I will not be able to devote anywhere near that level now. Plus, (pardon the heresy) I have things in the Outside that I like to spend time on also (and of course, you're always more than welcome to check out my blog at http://www.StratPlayerCJF.blogspot.com. I'm struggling to be a writer, playing my guitar a lot more, and sharing a lot of what I create on my blog).

So it will take me a while to get caught back up, and I may not post very often. But I'm here. Again. Even when I''m not.

'Cause that's what the OTT does to ya...

Good eyes, especially for a dead person!

And StratPlayer, there are many ways to be here - you don't have to fret that you're not reading it all, or that you're just skimming, or whatever. Drop in when you can, tease the Outside when you must, but once an OTTer, always an OTTer. :)

Good catch, you two! I missed that. All that panning makes molpy hunting a ch*irp of a lot more difficult.
If they're antpies, they must be huge ones, though, for us to be able to see them. Termolpies, perhaps?

Let's see if I can make something useful out of this...

Image

Frolpies! Not just on the molpyhill, but also one on the left. (Not sure about the molspecies of the latter one.)

The GLR knows how many other molpies we've missed during the long pan... This was a lot of manual pixel twerking, so I'm not going to check the whole thing.

Hi Zooman!

And it's neither -- Just some line spacing for a dramatic pause, followed by an apostrophe-leading contraction of "Because."

Just 'cause it sounds better that way. :wink:

I'm certainly not sure. I thought the final jump of the rightmost molpy looked frolpish, but a mouspy or other rodentpy is also a possibility.

Musical Chronogram from mrob27 at NP810

Postby mrob27 » Thu Dec 05, 2013 9:27 pm UTC

Chronogram Origin: NP810
Destination: NP1644


The OTT is about experiencing the OTC, and Blitzing/Ketchup/Mayo/Fry Sauce are about experiencing the OTT, and OTTifications are also about the OTT, but some OTTifications are about Blitzing. Then there are those who OTTify the OTTifications by taking them into a new medium. I've now taken the next step "up" into the world of the meta-meta-meta-OTC by recording a song based on another OTTer's lyrics. But why stop there? mrob27 says
Image


Based on othercomic 1220 :

META-OTTITY
Image
(title text: I have no problem with this.)
(spoiler-free for NP800 or later)


...which is a roundabout way of saying that I've "finished" my song. The lyrics are based on these by @jjjdavidson, who hasn't been around since... *searches the thread*

  :shock: :shock: :shock:


Oh My Sweet Randall. Did I just summon him by recording a song based on his lyrics?!?!? (Or was he perhaps summoned by the hidden backwards message in the song :twisted: ?)
    @jjjdavidson posted barely 5 nopix after I mentioned him and gave the teaser. ... Wow. I'm going to claim responsibility for this, because it's just the kind of thing a Retro-Paradoxical Chief of Grains should do, and I'll go further by declaring that Recording SomeOTTer's Lyrics Shall Bring Them Back From the basement Great Unknown! So what we all need in the OTT is More Cowbell!

... anyway where was I? Oh yeah, song. Here ya go:

mrob27, Timborme,
and
The Latter-Day TimeWaiters Gospel Choir
perform

"Some New Way to Blitz"
based on jjjdavidson's "Some Time to Ketchup"
based in turn on "Somebody to Love" by Queen / Freddie Mercury


Listen or download here (SoundCloud)


Making videos is hard for me, but let me know if a YouTube version would help.
    Apart from the obvious change in title (so I can be singing about what I'm actually doing i.e. Blitzing) I also changed some of @jjjdavidson's words to be more applicable to the Time After Time, or easier to sing in certain spots, etc. In tribute to jjjdavidson I worked a Double-Dactyl into the first of the two repetitive parts near the end, and the second repetitive part is meant to evoke the somewhat chaotic feeling of the OTT itself.

Lyrics: (chorus part in parentheses)

Can
(anybody find me)
(some new way to Blitz.)
oooooooooo-ohh
Each dip when I get up I read a little
Before I even shower or eat (take a look)
Take a look at the pagecount and cry (take a look at the page count)
OTTers what are you doing to me? (and cry, yeah, yeah)
I've spent all of these years on xkcd (oooo oooo xkcd)
In a wip there were just three to read now (there were just three to read Randall)
Somebody, some, new way to (somebody, new way to)
Can anybody find me- (anybody find me)
A new way to blitz
Yeah

I blitz hard (he reads hard)
Every day 'n every night
I hardly step out of the room
If I ever need to leave I always rush home (never leaves he stays home)
To Google Chrome with a feeling of doom (stays home, feeling of doom)
I read Newpages all night until the dawn (read all night to dawn)
Then I coma 'till well after noon, pleeeease (oooo, oooo, oooo, Randall!)
New way to, oh, somebody (new way to, please)
Can anybody find me- (anybody find me)
A new way to blitz

(He reads hard)
Every day (every day)
I skim and I scan and I scroll (skim and I scan and I scroll)
But everybody's gotta have their say, can't they be lazy (ooooooooo)
They gotta comment every frame, (ooooooooo)
Got no chance I'm outnumbered but I gotta keep (ahhhhhhhh)
Reading - next page, next page, next page (ahhhh, gotta keep)
Next page, next page (reading)
(next, next, next, next)

Pitch is mustard everywhere :oops: :( :cry: . I bashed at it for waaaayy too long :x and the bots were starting to get Image and Timborme was bored and said he'd start Blitzing without me, I asked if he could just Wait For It a little longer but when I heard the TARDIS firing up I decided I'd better stop :|

Oddly, when I coma and listen to it again it sounds allright :mrgreen:

Steakish animation mscha! To me it's most definitely a mouspy. Ears, tail, darting. The second (leftmost) one also moves like a mouspy.

ggh - I forgot to ask - what is 1932?

mrob27 - wowterful! Steakish, wingish, and a whole bunch of footnotes, standard and otherwise! Axios to the whole choir!

btw, is your "server performance" graph/chart something that is live, or did you just compile it once for a prior post? Since 503 still sporadically appear, it might be a useful tool 'twere it live.

Oh, hi, OTTers! :) Yeah, I haven't bothered to read the OTT since the 503 mustard. I finally gave in and started playing Sandcastle Builder last week though. Now I understand why people are so tempted to click the kitty in StormAngel's sig. (Quick note to ED: If Chromatic Heresy is on, and a colored newpix is showing, then Chromatic Heresy is turned off, the colored form of the newpix continues being shown. I assume it's not supposed to be that way.)

Mesmerized by ggh's wowterfall, which I'm glad to be in despite not having posted in nearly three weeks.

Yes, once an OTTer, always an OTTer. I've used the word "mustard" on another forum--as in, a forum completely unrelated to xkcd. Nobody's said anything yet. :mrgreen:
