So... it has been quite some time since I last posted.
Spoiler:
I had a visitor in town for a week (including the weekends on either side), combined with the first of two consecutive hell weeks at work, followed by a weekend trip to watch my brother graduate from high school.

As a result of all of this, I am now exactly 100 pages FURTHER behind than I was at my last signpost, the furthest in the Past I have been during all of Time. You can expect shorter, more infrequent signposts as I try to spend whatever I can Blitzing.

I have one thing to contribute, although this probably will have shown up at some point in my future by the time I return to the Present.

RE: Y'all/You All/etc: I found this map some time ago, and thought it might be interesting to those who participated in the Y'all/You All/etc. conversation some couple hundred pages into the past: http://www.businessinsider.com/22-maps- ... us-style-7


Great to hear from you again!

Molpy update:

Apparently, there's a molpy hole just to the right of that shrub. The molpy sat left of the shrub in the first frame, in the entrance of the hole in the next, and is safely inside the molpy hole in the third and (for now) final frame.

Sigged my friend. For it is in this way that I have learned most that I know.

Now that I'm condimented, I can't help but throw one more idea onto the pile of replacement names for filk: cobos for the attempt, and coboss if it's good (tbd by the audience).

Advantages:
    works for song, literature, images - anything derivative;
    short;
    both verb and noun;
    correctly indicates that it is based off another work without necessarily implying humour;
    provides one-letter appreciative modifier.

Next up from The Sound of Music: Do-Re-Mi

Or, if you prefer, Small-Big-Neat

That is, I have two versions. Take your pick. The first is simple, and leaves most of the original song-dialog unchanged, except for the main verse. The second gets a little strange.

Version 1
Spoiler:
Let's start at the very beginning
A very good place to start
When you read you begin with A-B-C
When you wait you begin with do-re-me...
(Do-re-me)
The first three words just happen to be
Do-re-me
(Do-re-me)
Do-re-me-fa-so-la-ti...
Let's see if I can make it easy

Do - What Homer Simpson says
Re - A white sky pixel's glow
Me - Megan, our heroine
Fa - The distance they will go
So - "It causally connects"
La - Petite we barely know
Ti - A letter before Rex
And that brings us back to Do (oh-oh-oh)

Version 2
Spoiler:
Let's start at the very beginning
A very good place to start
When you shampoo you lather-rinse-repeat
When you wait you begin with small-big-neat
Small-big-neat
(small-big-neat)
The first three words you're going to meet
Small-big-neat
(small-big-neat)
Small-big-neat-wow-old-tiny-weird...
Let's see if I can make it easy

Small - Is what our river is
Big - The vastness of the sea
Neat - A river branching wide
Wow - A very lofty tree
Old - A camp along the trail
Tiny - The river at the fall
Weird - A tree bent by the gale
And that brings us back to small (-all-all-all)

(repeat)

Small-big-neat-wow-old-tiny-weird-small
Old-small!

(Now waiters, small-big-neat-wow-old and so on are only the tools we use to build a post. Once you have these words in your heads, you can post a million different posts by mixing them up. Like this:)

Old-Small-Tiny-Wow-Neat-Small-Big
(Can you do that?)
(old-small-tiny-wow-neat-small big)
Old-Small-Tiny-Weird-Small-Big-Small
(old-small-tiny-weird-small-big-small)
(Now, put it all together.)
Old-Small-Tiny-Wow-Neat-Small-Big, Old-Small-Tiny-Weird-Small-Big-Small
(Good!)
(But it doesn't mean anything.)
(So we put in footnotes. One footnote for every word. Like this.)

Camp5 chirp1 frog6 snake7 tent2 molpy2

Small Neat Neat

Big Wow Wow
Tiny Weird

I can't read the word ottification without immediately thinking of Cabin Pressure and no otters on the flight deck. This in turn keeps making me smile. So please, feel free to keep repeating it!

Okay, that needs some work. I'll be back soon.

Or, if you prefer, Small-Big-Neat

That is, I have two versions. Take your pick. The first is simple, and leaves most of the original song-dialog unchanged, except for the main verse. The second gets a little strange.

Version 1
Spoiler:
Let's start at the very beginning
A very good place to start
When you read you begin with A-B-C
When you wait you begin with do-re-me...
(Do-re-me)
The first three words just happen to be
Do-re-me
(Do-re-me)
Do-re-me-fa-so-la-ti...
Let's see if I can make it easy

Do - What Homer Simpson says
Re - A white sky pixel's glow
Me - Megan, our heroine
Fa - The distance they will go
So - "It causally connects"
La - Petite we barely know
Ti - A letter before Rex
And that brings us back to Do (oh-oh-oh)

Version 2
Spoiler:
Let's start at the very beginning
A very good place to start
When you shampoo you lather-rinse-repeat
When you wait you begin with small-big-neat

Small-big-neat
(small-big-neat)
Small-big-neat-wow-old-tiny-weird...

Small - Is what our river is

Wow - A very lofty tree
Old - A camp along the trail
Tiny - The river at the fall
Weird - A tree bent by the gale
And that brings us back to small (-all-all-all)

(repeat)

Small-big-neat-wow-old-tiny-weird-small
Old-small!

(Now waiters, small-big-neat-wow-old and so on are only the tools we use to build a post. Once you have these words in your heads, you can post a million different posts by mixing them up. Like this:)

Maybe it is a cairn, but to me it looks like a little evergreen shrub. (So why is Megan saying, "Oh!"? I don't know─maybe when she isn't exploring she's a shrubber. But a pile of rocks doesn't sound all that "Oh!"-inspiring to me, either.)

I was just thinking of that song last night and that it would make a great timeodyottifilkation! Great minds think alike. :)

@Rule110: Love! Obviously the 2nd one takes the cake as it were here in the OTT. I gotta say, the shampoo line made me laugh out loud, because it is super silly, yet works, and was obviously put there primarily for the rhyme-value. It's quirky and wonderful. :P

@BlitzGirl: I'll be doing more Wiki maintenance tonip.

@jjjdavidson: I admit I also thought it looked like a little evergreen at first. But the more I look at it, the more it seems like a cairn, and especially given the current reaction of Megan in the most recent newpix.

EDIT: Yay! This was post 321! That's neat, I guess. Sorry... I don't have a GIFt to celebrate. (Those things are enough work to only need making every 100 and nothing else!)

Yeah, that's a side effect of the fact that php's GD functions don't like transparency, so even when working with pngs they can only have 1-bit alphas. Can't tell really on the forums, hence why I'm going to be converting it for the desktop app. Also so that it's resizeable :D

Fool! Where do you think the gold for the One Ring came from?

Probably form the dwarves. Moria is likely (yes it did have gold. It also had Mithril.).


Nope, it came from the Rhinemaidens. They were supposed to be guarding it, and Alberich tricked them and stole it. (although he was a dwarf, so there is a connection there.) YOU HAD ONE JOB, RHINEMAIDENS, WHAT THE HELL. Alberich forges the ring, enslaves the other dwarves, which leads us to a spear and magic helmet, which leads us to Bugs Bunny ("What's Opera, Doc?") - I'm not sure how that's all related, but it must be, somehow?

...And how does it all end? The Rhinemaidens get their lump of gold backAR.

Only, as anyone who has enjoyedlong a Wagner opera knows, and with the knowledge that Der Ring des Nibelungen is comprised of four(4) Wagner operas, you have to...

Only, as anyone who has enjoyedlong a Wagner opera knows, and with the knowledge that Der Ring des Nibelungen is comprised of four(4) Wagner operas, you have to...

Ketchup time.

So, I spent way more Time than I should have working on that gif (which I've removed till I can fix it) and trying to ketch up. I used the multi-quote script and had written many responses, which were astute and of course pithy. Then it was time to go, and figured I would post my response at home. I thought I saved a draft, but...alas, it's all gone.

Some of it had to do with the discussion of what to call the many brilliant offerings here. I was fine with filk; I had never heard the word before the OTT, so it had no other associations. And for me parody doesn't have the negative association is seems to for azule. But I'm all for coming up with a new name, or names. (I know, it's crazy. When has the OTT ever come up with its own names for things?) My vote is, I think, in line with jjjdavidson's (wonderful poem, btw!). I think that ottification is a great word for any sort of OTT-related creation, be it song, graphic, meme, what-have-you, and I like ottist and ottisan, But I think ottody could be used specifically for a ottified song. (Ottology could be the study of ottification, sort of like tautology.) I'm also pretty sure that people are going to use different words no matter what we say. :D (azule, I love the word dorknuggets. Maybe not for the songs, but it should be used for something. Maybe if someone writes a really great bit of code?)

charlie_grumbles, I'm afraid I don't get cobos. :?

There were amazing ottodies from BlitzGirl. You even got Maria's high note at the end of the Lonely Goatherd! :shock: And then Rule110's Do Re Mi (I vote for version 2, and want us all to sing it with the two different parts). And the similarity between the silhouette posted by thirds and the terrain we've been seeing is, I think, striking. (Ow! Stop striking me!) And there were some great first posts, and animations, and other songs, and, and...well, if I try to go back and remember, I'll fall behind again. So, great job, everyone!

Here are a couple of things saved in another draft:

Actually, you didn't use it once in that sentence.

Actually, he used it exactly once in that sentence, just as you did.

Dammit!

Greetings, Blitzers! Third Time's a charm, I hope. I left this in the past, but I'm hoping this is a better place to leave it. I have come here from your future bearing a message for rakhal. Rakhal, an OTTer from the future, Sustainabilizer, has created a hatted avatar for you, if you'd like to use it. To view, just use this time portal. And Randallspeed on your blitz to you and any other blitzers out there! Send reports if you can, we love to read them. Farewell!

Did everyone miss that reference? That's one of those songs I assume everyone knows. A TV show a few years back parodied it with "My goat knows the bowling score". Here are the original lyrics.

I guess it has to do with scope.
