Happy 200th, Earthling on Mars
Happy 1000th, ucim (with another sea-ish chapter of "Acts)
Happy 1000th, charlie_grumples (Please. Please don't leave. I Liked the Panther Salve ads. We've all been touchy these last couple weeks.)

Welcome back, HAL9000. Hope you had fun... At least more fun than Allan Sherman did at Camp Grenada. Also, a lighthearted song for a gloomy Newpage.)

I am sorry to see rvloon has decided to revert to lurker status. I know I shouldn't be one to say "No, you must keep posting", since I've gone though 'lurking only' phases myself. But do look in and surprise us with a line every now and then.

Something new on the horizon, kieryn.com and Sciscitor's up and running database. Can't "wait" (well, I guess I can) to see what kieryn has up his sleeve and I did look at Sciscitor's site last dip (which I'll take a longer look at now it's 'official'.)

Bunch of new ottifications, OTComics, and OTTcolors here too. All of them deserving more praise than my Thesaurus can handle....

Love the raft Monomolpy piece schwartzbewithyou. That reminds me I haven't seen any OTT-Chance or OTT-Community Chest cards or Monomolpy Money yet, have I..... Another ongoing project...

Post-Festival Ketchup

Postby yappobiscuits » Tue Aug 13, 2013 1:47 am UTC

Molpy back! I'm working on a treeish present present, but for now have a seaish ketchup.

BlitzGirl wrote:Have fun at your festival of heavy stocky blood metal, yappo!

Woo, heavy stocky blood metal! Image
Thanks, it was a lot of fun indeed! There were many wowterful bands including Avantasia who I mentioned before in this thread because their latest album is called "The Mystery of Time". IT'S ALL RELATED. Also I managed to get my friends using "treeish" to mean good :mrgreen:. We also did some folky jamming in the campsite which was awesomeful.
Neil_Boekend wrote:Wow yappo, that lineup looks hardcore. In comparison the MFVF lineup is cute (I'll be going there). Have fun and don't break to many fingers. You need them to filk songs!

Well, the MFVF stuff is more my usual cup of tea ;). My friend's band Anwynn played there last year. And I see Crimfall and Dalriada on that lineup! Excellent! I do love my symphonic metal but I tend to be more of a folk metal fanboy :P. And Leaves Eyes, they're pretty folky too!
Neil_Boekend wrote:I am quite curious as to what she has done since she was kicked out of Nightwish, but not curious enough to install a torrent client to check.
I do really like her voice, although I feel Nightwish has improved with Anette (although I only heard Dark Passion Play). Not directly due to the voice, Anette is good but a bit simple, a bit to much like pop song sounds. The depth and range of Tarja's voice is awefulsome. Although in a live performance of Nightwish with Anette she did do an acceptable The Siren. Modified of course, because The Siren has these extremely high notes that she just couldn't do.

Hmm, when checking Wikipedia I see Floor Jansen is lead singer of Nightwish now. Awefulsome! I loved her voice in After Forever! Yaay *waits for it a new album*

It's funny seeing Nightwish (my favourite band ever) being discussed here in the OTT, since my previous "internet home" before I came here was the Nightwish otherforum :P. I almost had to double check that I WAS in the OTT and not over there! :P Anyway, I've never bothered with Tarja's solo work. You get those Nightwish fans who gave up on the band after she left because they thought her voice was what "made" the band, but I couldn't disagree more, it's Tuomas's amazing songwriting which makes the band, that's where the magic comes from. Her solo work doesn't do anything for me without Tuomas's compositions. Anyway, do listen to Imaginaerum! IMO it's way better than Dark Passion Play (since the songs were written with Anette's voice in mind whereas DPP was written before she joined) and it's a much more uplifting and diverse album with none of the mopeyness from DPP (The Poet and the Pendulum was an incredible song musically, but the lyrics were a tad cringeworthy). In fact it's probably my favourite album of theirs. I ottified the song "Scaretale" from it earlier, dunno if you saw that! And yes, Floor is wowterful, but she's not confirmed as the permanent new singer yet. Officially she's just a stand in, but we'll see.

From Lewis Carroll's Prologue to Through the Looking Glass. Also, you can find a musical version with original words by Omnia.

Prologue-Epilogue
Spoiler:
Cue of the pure unclouded brow
And dreaming words of wonder!
Though Time be fleet, and I and thou
Are 13-thou asunder,
Our loving tribe will surely hail
The love-gift of a fairy-tale.

I shall not see thy blank round face,
Nor hear thy silver laughter:
No thought of me shall find a place
In Meg and Cue's hereafter--
Enough that now thou wilt not fail
To feature in our fairy-tale.

A tale begun in other days,
When castle walls were growing--
A simple chime, that served up Time
The rhythm of our knowing--
Whose echoes live in memory yet,
Though newpix hence might say "forget".

Come, hearken then, ere voices wend,
With bitter tidings litter'd,
Shall summon to unwelcome end
A melancholy blitzer!
We are but older Waiters, dear,
Who fret to find our lastpix near.

Without, the "mate", the "job", the "days"
Pull us from forum's Madness--
Within, the glow of each newpage
Builds OTTers' nest of gladness.
The magic pix shall hold thee tight:
Thou shalt not heed the Outside's light!

And, though the shadow of a sigh
May tremble through the story,
For "semencoffeesea" gone by,
And vanish'd castle's glory--
It shall not touch with breath of bale,
The pleasance of our fairy-tale.

Though Time be fleet, and I and thou
Are half a world asunder,
Our loving tribe will surely hail
The love-gift of a fairy-tale.

Treeish! I remember when Rule110 posted "The Alt-Text" I was reminded of Omnia's musical version of The Raven and tried reading it along with that :)

Timeventure's frame describing tab
Considering how well my FrameComments script was received, I'm gonna ask before continuing: would y'll like to help me to write this game?

Wow, this looks like an awesomeful idea! Can't wait to see more.

This sounds like something I should relate to, but actually I don't listen to music when I read. I prefer to fully concentrate on the book, and music tends to distract me.

Because it's supposedly using a Cockney accent "E for brick" is "'eave (heave) a brick" (wikipedia has "E for Adam", as in "Eve or Adam", but I'm fairly sure my brick is remembered and not made up (there are multiple versions of this alphabet apparently)), and "U for rear" is a stretch -- "euphoria" -- which I confess I made up because I couldn't remember this one (and wikipedia's "U for films" ("UFA films" means absolutely nothing to me))

Reporting in from the once more cloudy San Francisco again. Was quite lovely earlier today, then in the late afternoon the fog returned, along with some gusty chills. I guess that's normal here?
Spent the first part of the day touring Berkeley (a self-guided tour, with 2 of my siblings and both parents in tow - an ungainly bunch, to be sure) which mostly consisted of reading brief descriptions of the buildings and peeking in to see how they looked on the inside. We looked more extensively through the EECS building, given that's where I intend to major, and while it all seemed quite nice I don't have much of a point of comparison.
After that we drove over to tourist central, Piers 41 and 39. As promised, there were some cute sea molpies lounging about at pier 41 (but I didn't quite feel comfortable with shouting out "SEA MOLPIES!!" in the middle of the crowd, so I just said it quietly to myself). Pier 39 was rather crowded, much more so than last time I was here but probably average for a weekday in the middle of August. We did our duty as obvious tourists and frequented a few of the kitschy, overpriced shops at the pier. My favorite was definitely a quirky little shop on the second story called Fairy Tales, which had a number of majestic dragon figurines and even a couple larger statuettes, and a few shirts as well. I was unable to claim one as my single souvenir for the trip (my parents reasoning that it didn't indicate the city or place of origin anywhere on it - a family rule, though one I frequently dispute) and didn't really feel it a prudent use of the spending money I'd brought along. Then again, what else am I going to spend it on in the near future, video games?
I was sad to come back to so many OTTers indicating their gradual or sudden exit. I suppose it had to begin eventually and will continue until one by one we're all gone, but the knowledge of its inevitability does not soften the pang it causes upon discovery. I'll console myself by remembering the good times we had here and trying to enjoy the ones we can still have, albeit with a smaller number of OTTers. Keep calm and ottify othercomics, I suppose.

Well now that you are back I am sure that you will get use to the lack-of-ONG.

@ChronosDragron Thanks for your trip updates. Too bad you didn't pick up a least one small dragon souvenir. (Maybe it wouldn't have mbeen inside family rules, but you would have known where it came from. Of course, if you end up at UC-Berkley, you'll know where that shop is....)

Like you said, it's not surprising folks are drifting away. I hope that they'll still check in once in a while. It's a shame though, if someone leaves angry. It does make it hard to return. Your afraid of being embarrassed if you come back, because you think someone will "make light" of you. (To tell the truth, my "posting vacation" a while back did come from being miffed over some things. I guess because I simply stopped posting without explanation, no body noticed.)

Whoa late night fire-side musings....

An OTTcolor to make up for the negativity here.

Not sure about the cliff-side. Maybe after some practice with my new photo editing platforms I'll re-visit it.


And I just noticed yappo's back from his Metalfest... Looks like you had a great sea-ish time.

Edit two:
I also noticed it's molpy down time for this OTTer once again. (Yep that four letter word "Work" is going to show up tooooo early for my liking.)
Wait Well. We've blitzers aplenty who want somebody to read their posts. And there are still our lost ones to Wait for their return.

This is how I felt when I traveled to the Oregon coast and went to the Sea Lion Caves recently. In the gift shop I ended up finding pricklymolp and squirpy finger puppets and took pictures for all ya'll - and bought an OTTer magnet which now hangs on my fridge. ;) Glad you were able to do some touring; sorry you weren't able to pick up any souvenirs you wanted.

ETA: awesome OTColorization, @pelrigg!

Sure is! So you're going to UC Berkeley this fall? I work in Berkeley (I live a bit further east, though. Near Mt. Diablo). It's a nice city, just watch out for the aggressive hobos and stinky hippies downtown.

FWIW, I'm not gone, I'm just lurking a lot of the time when I'm here. Personal stuff has got me more introverted lately.
C'mon, let's see what's through here!

Sure is! So you're going to UC Berkeley this fall? I work in Berkeley (I live a bit further east, though. Near Mt. Diablo). It's a nice city, just watch out for the aggressive hobos and stinky hippies downtown.

FWIW, I'm not gone, I'm just lurking a lot of the time when I'm here. Personal stuff has got me more introverted lately.


Not quite, I'm not entering college until 2016 actually (just doing tours here because it's convenient, and nice to think about these things in advance), but Berkeley is certainly somewhere on my list of potential colleges from what I saw of it. Saw a fair share of both aggressive hobos and stinky hippies while there, but they're not quite enough to turn me off of living there for a little while. Probably wouldn't want to settle there permanently, but then I haven't really been happy anywhere but Seattle so far :P

Fortunately, most of the hobos and hippies are easy to avoid, since they tend to hang around downtown, Telegraph Avenue and some of the more populous parts of campus. Most of Berkeley is really nice and full of cool people. If you like Seattle, I think you'll definitely like it here. I've never been to Seattle, but friends who have (including people from there who visited or moved here) all seem to agree, they're pretty similar cities. We get significantly less rain, though. :D

Say, how long are you in the area? I could give you some tips on treeish places to visit if your parents are short on ideas.

Unfortunately, we got tomorrow and then we head off east towards Yosemite. And tomorrow is pretty busy, starting with a tour of Stanford and continuing with my younger adopted sister meeting her confirmed (via DNA analysis) cousin, which will happen at a mall and so of course shopping will happen (and since there are females present, you can be assured that will take at least 2 hours). But in case we're back in the near future, let's hear your tips anyway! :D

Saw a fair share of both aggressive hobos and stinky hippies while there, but they're not quite enough to turn me off of living there for a little while. Probably wouldn't want to settle there permanently, but then I haven't really been happy anywhere but Seattle so far :P

I know a few people going to Berkeley this year! I myself will be going to UC Davis in a month and majoring in physics, which, I have found out, is more intimidating to Outside people than I thought. I must be reading too much xkcd.

Back when the Timeventure site was linked to, I went there and was presented with what I later figured out was one of the white-out frames. So, I had no idea what to do or how it worked. It was like the Waiters at the beginning of Time that wondered what it all meant.
This is how that went from my mostly-lurking point-of-view:
Spoiler:
I looked at 1190 the morning it was posted. I looked at the title text, and so I went looking for the method of waiting I was supposed to participate in (.gif? javascript?). It was easy enough to tell it wasn't a .gif, and it wasn't a normal .png, so I went to explainxkcd, where I found that it updated. I spent the first thousand or so nps checking the explainxkcd for updates, and I wasn't aware that the thread was getting seaish very quickly. Once I came to check it out, I found all the neat stuff that had been created in the last month. It was quite an experience. I read through random posts, looking at many of the images and learning what semencancercoffeebabies was. I watched for about a month more, then I created an account and posted every once in a while. The volume of the posts was intimidating, so I stayed lurking for much of Time. I learned what Blitzgirl's place was, and what was up with charlie_grumbles' TdF updates. It was all so exciting. There was a culture and lifestyle being created among people that I didn't know, but seemed so welcoming. So I joined. I won't be leaving until everyone else does because this isn't just another individual comic thread. It's a spontaneously created, diverse, and intellectual society that beats anything else I have experienced. If you'd like me to make an OTTercomic or the like, I'd be happy to do so, for those of you less artistic OTTers! Because even when you have something to say but don't know how to express it, you still need a voice. Even for jokes. And I have lots of free time!
And yes, it's always foggy. Keeps the temperature right around 60 the entire year. It's great.

"Wild Mountain Thyme"

The Song of Time

Now the end of time is coming,
And the tears are all a-flowing
And the followers of Time
Flock all-around together.
Will you go, lassie, will you go?

Chorus:
Will we all stay together
To talk about that wild ride of Time
And to think about whether,
We should stay, lass, or go?

Spoiler:
Now no newpix will be coming
The ONG will not be sounding
Yet there's a place that we can go,
To discuss our time together
Will you go, lassie, will you go?

If the OTT runs dry
We will surely find eachother
For as great minds think alike
So will we always be an OTTer.
Will you go, lassie, will you go?

Now the end of time is coming,
And the tears are all a-flowing
And the followers of Time
Flock all-around together.
Will you go, lassie, will you go?

Oh, you don't want us to stop crying! I see, all right then. I wave my sodden handkerchief in salute and surrender. :cry:


Actually, a Requiem compasses most of the stages of grief. The fact that someone's gone (Requiem), anger (Dies Irae - take Verdi's http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TVjDP0vlem4), comfort, acceptance... So it was meant as consolation.

My favorite question for such tours is, "What do you wish you had known before you got here?" (Or some variation.) It usually gets pretty good (that is, unscripted) answers, some of which can lead to other questions.

Hi everyone!

I'll be away from the OTT for about a wip, visiting a friend close to Kieryn's place. In fact, I was with said friend in Costa Rica when Time started, and after two or three xips, he asked: "Are you still looking at these sandcastles? That's been going on so long now. Don't you think it's boring after a while?" I couldn't explain it to him, and I wonder what he'll say if I tell him that it went on for four mips, and that the thread is still going strong...
Maybe I'll be able to do some small ketchup while I'm away, but there'll be a large amount of it (I hope) when I return.
Keep on waiting (and ottifying and caking and...), I hope all y'all are still here when I return!
Spoiler:

ETA: Hmm, I thought Kieryn mentioned somewhere that he's in New York, but now his marker on the map is in Nashville. Well, I think I'll be close to jetpac, then...
Wait on.

Could make use of the riverish Monopoly page on our wiki. I've made a few edits to set things up.


Thanks for the reminders. I have been meaning to work on some of those things but...damn Outside.

Yeah, take it from a Physics&Math major whose age can be determined thru Carbon-dating -- all you have to do is say "I'm a physicist" and everyone's eyes glaze over like you're a particularly incomprehensible and boring alien species :(

'Round these parts, you say, 'I'm a physicist' and everyone's eyes glaze over like you're a particularly ordinary person who can't think of any better way of starting a conversation than stating the obvious.


I have as a significant hobby - Astrophysics (Irregular galaxies in particular). People expect me to look through telescopes and at pictures and say isn't that pretty. I actually spend my time doing deep numerical analysis using existing public data from serious telescopes (SDSS, Hubble, Galex) that has simply been ignored. I think nothing of using 60 CPU days on my server reducing a vast database to 6 numbers (plus error bars). Around me there is all of 6 astronomical photos that is all. Yes I am a geek.
