Here, rain came and went. But it'll come again. Rain comes from the sea, and the sea does what it wants.

So nice to see the OTTcolors. I wonder whatever happened to so many of the artists. Sigh.

When I examine the drawings, do I recognize things that have happened (to me, if I'm that guy)?

Edit: This makes me Pope of NP 2649. Decree: Share things that have happened to you that have been depicted, mirrored, or alluded to in any of the stories of the One True Author, the Other True Authors, or the Other Related Authors.

Thank you, oldpixbot. And now that the timiversary of the appropriate timeframe has arrived, here is the present present that I promised:

Signs On The Bark
(based on "The Name Of The Game" by ABBA)

Spoiler:
We've walked so far in this short time
Since we set out from the seashore
It seems to me for every day
That we have constantly learned more

Now this is a pretty big tree
It will know what it's doing
On the trunk there are markings I see
Like a message for viewing
So I wanna know

There are signs on the bark
Do they mean anything to you?
There are signs on the bark
Can you read and explain them, too?
Tell me please, 'cause I have to know
What their meaning is, I'm wondering so

We found out new stuff
On the way we came
But it's not enough
And I wonder just the same
If we'd understand
Our rising sea
That would be so neat
Understanding everything
Starts at any little thing
I wanna know
'Bout the signs on the bark

Back at the place where we grew up
So much we haven't been knowing
Beauty and awe found in this world
These make us want to keep going

Our people are living in yurts
Not a lot we could learn there
Understanding how everything works
It's for this that I do care
So I wanna know

There are signs on the bark
(Our people are living in yurts)
Do they mean anything to you?
(Understanding how everything works)
And I wanna know 'bout the signs on the bark
(Our people are living in yurts)
Can you read and explain them, too?
Tell me please, 'cause I have to know
What their meaning is, I'm wondering so

We found out new stuff
On the way we came
But it's not enough
And I wonder just the same
If we'd understand
Our rising sea
That would be so neat
Understanding everything
Starts at any little thing
I wanna know
Oh yes, I wanna know

'Bout the signs on the bark
(Now this is a pretty big tree)
Do they mean anything to you?
(On the trunk there are markings I see)
And I wanna know 'bout the signs on the bark
(Our people are living in yurts)
Can you read and explain them, too?
(Understanding how everything works)
And I wanna know 'bout the signs on the bark
(Now this is a pretty big tree)

And I wanna know...

Ever since I've had the feeling that the song was finished and ready to be posted, some ten dips ago, I'd been wanting to do so. But I chose to follow the first commandment because of the upcoming timiversary. And I was rewarded: again and again ideas kept occuring to me how I could improve bits and parts of the ottification, and I think it has become the better for it.

mrob27 wrote:@addams, you linked to https://www.dropbox.com/s/ye98q78k3ms8my1/on%20my%20own.m4a which does nothing for me except ask me to create an account. A well-known song called "On My Own" I'm guessing. The 1986 pop duet?
  ETA: I reloaded and then it let me play it. It sounds like a OTTification of something from an opera. Can you tell us what this is?

As documented in the One True Wiki, it is the OTTification of the song "On My Own" from the musical Les Misérables, ottified and performed by the molpishly talented lmjb1964 and originally posted on NP1320.

In weather news, here rain passed through two days ago, but thunderstorms in the afternoon/evening are forecast for the next few days.

Have you tried the newest one?
In my first attempt it had very simple rules of deciding which platform to jmp to next.
Sometimes it thought that it's a good idea to jump to a platform which is unreachable.

The next version is much better at these decisions.
It now actually actually calculates if a platform can be reached and how easily.

With ctrl+D you can have a preview of the "score" it assigns to each platform. and an arrow showing where it wants to jump next.

Awesomeful present present svenman! And yes, the First Commandment is the Greatest Commandment there is, along with the Other Commandment, which is like unto it. It has certainly made your ottification wingish to the utmost, and the experience of receiving it is all the better for our also following that Great Commandment...

...as we did also for the OTA's latest offering of Whifdix! Thank you Zooman for so faithfully posting all the new Othercomics and OtherOthers. Of special interest, in this WhatIf, we learn that Earth knows what it's doing. Space knows what it's doing too, but that seems less... earthshattering, as it were. :) Also, the number 16 seems to have gone missing. Somebody should check the basement. And while there, see if you can find ggh, BlitzGirl, Febrion... fruit bats, breakfast cereals... The basement is beginning to know what it's doing too!

(In externally Related news, HelpDesk has started back up after yips of the First Commandment too. Now, I wonder what happened to kieryn and his penguins. I miss them.

Not exactly. The Basement is where OTTers go when they don't post on, or at least visit, the OTT anymore. Being in the basement is, hopefully, a temporary status, but for some of us it has become more or less permanent. How long it has to be since an OTTer's last post before they are considered to be in the basement is a matter of personal taste.

Nevertheless, welcome to the planet to the new earth citizen, and congrats to the parents!

Thankfully, the OTTermap can drastically reduce the amount of outside to search, for some of us.

The Outside is still scary big, that said.

Greetings! There has been much Outside lately, what with the zombies and the raptors and the observing and relocating. There was also a wedding, a road trip, a concert, and a conference. And many flights. I'm very tired.

Still more Outside ahead, but I will be back. Hugs to you all!

I installed an add-on called, "Terms of Service, Didn't Read" which tries to warn me if I should avoid sites with bad terms. It doesn't seem to be keeping up with the current onslaught though, so I'm mostly just clicking OK and carrying on. I have to admit I don't like all the terms, but short of creating my own internet I'm probably pretty stuck.

LW, MSW, MSWFP, and I went on a walk this morning. Found some beautiful things, mostly the benches placed along the path. 'Twas very hot before we finished. I think Alberto will bring some rain our way, but not wind.

Gingercat (GM) pokes his head once more into the OTT.
Gingercat (GM): Hi again everymolpy! I'm still around and have once again eaten of ketchup until I have Read It All once more.
Marakai: Try blood. It's much tastier.
Gingercat (GM): To you, maybe... although your last attempt to taste blood didn't quite wok out so well did it? I think you broke some of the crumbly old bones in your posterior!
Marakai: They don't make keyboards like they used to... And I think this one is a bit more broken than usual. It doesn't even have blood!
Marakai gives Venor the Skeletal Keyboard Cleric of Fire, Flames, Shadow and Cyric-Thwapping a long, appraising and disapproving look.
Marakai: It used to be an elf, you know, when I first met it. Now I think it's some kind of Weave corruption made manifest.
Venor: I think your face is Weave corruption made manifest.
Gingercat (GM): That's... Uh, I was going to say "harsh" but with the treatment you lot have given him lately...
Marakai: Hey! I resemble that remark... I mean resent! I resent it!!
Gingercat (GM): Sorry old boy, I think you were right the first time. You ugly, son.

I'm going to a wedding on Fridip. Not sure why it's a Fridip. It's in Melbourne. Kinda sadly, the wip*nd after there's a thing called Oz Comic-Con happening in Melbourne. If it was the same wip*nd I might be tempted to attend some. Except I've never been to any of that sort of convention and I'd be too shy in introverted and awkward to ever go to one alone. Oh well.

Also I really need to design myself a tshirt with a long spoof Privacy Policy on it.

I think you are Delightful!

The convention might be good fun.

Oh, right! Why wouldn't they say, "We haven't seen any people," instead of "haven't been seen by any people"? How do they know if they've been seen by people or not? Do you think GLR purposely wrote odd dialogue to give a sense that this was a time and place that was not now and here?
Also, hi!

I considered it to be evidence of a nomadic culture, which would have no better word for "home" and would use the same words for "dwelling place" and "campsite".

Interesting, that's a good thought.

  ETA: I reloaded and then it let me play it. It sounds like a OTTification of something from an opera. Can you tell us what this is?

This is the ottification I wrote the night that Time *nded. I was playing in the pit for Les Miserables. I remember sitting in the pit feeling somewhat stunned and crying a little, thinking about Th* *nd. It's an ottification of one of my favorite songs from Les Mis. I cringe a little at some of the vocals, but I guess it sounds ok for just recording it by sitting and singing at my computer.

And thank for the info from the wiki, svenman, and for your kinds words. And thank you also for your steakish and molpish Present present! So funny, I was just listening to my ABBA greatest hits CD. I played it when I had to drive to the airport at 4:30 in the morning recently, and then again when my BF and I had a long drive home at night. It's a great driving CD, with the singing and dancing in your seat, and the perky music, it really keeps you from falling asleep at the wheel.

addams wrote:Oh! Oh! A New Baby Girl Poster To Be was Born in the Basement!
Yes, Jose. Maybe, the Basement does know what it is doing.

Someone had a baby girl in the Basement? That sounds both unsafe and unpleasant. Seriously, did an OTTer just have a baby?

Not me, I'm afraid.

Hi, GingerCat! So good to see you. I ended your present post. I should be a-coma, but I also wanted to complete my ketchup. I'm finding I'm enjoying this late-nip ketchup--reminds of when Time was still ONGing.

ED, it sounds like it won't work out this time anyway, but I hope that you would not let your shyness stop you from going to a convention. Y

We had a little rain, not common for this time of year. Not enough rain, unfortunately, to keep my plants from shriveling up when I didn't water them before leaving for a week. :roll:

Edited to add something I forgot to add, and fix something else.

lmjb1964 wrote:Oh, right! Why wouldn't they say, "We haven't seen any people," instead of "haven't been seen by any people"?
Because "they don't like us very much"? I imagine that they would be chased away as urchins if they were seen. Remember, they were deliberately abandoned and left to drown in a Zanclean flood. Even Rodney Dangerfield is held in higher esteem!

Not exactly. The Basement is where OTTers go when they don't post on, or at least visit, the OTT anymore. Being in the basement is, hopefully, a temporary status, but for some of us it has become more or less permanent.

I'm busybusybusy all the Time, and then I get scared by the amount of ketchup I need and just cower in the basement. I pretty much live there now. :(

Yanno, you don't have to cover yourself in ketchup in order to enter the OTT. There are many ways to time; naked hotdogs are more than welcome here. :)

Yeah, Cuegan don't get no respect!

Although, to be fair, the Beanies didn't rescue the Forty because they didn't know about them. Of course, it would have been nice if the Hill People had mentioned the Forty to the Beanies.

Your OTTercomic is steakish and molpish, and your redundant OTTercomic is redundantly steakish and molpish. Also awesomeful.

Hiya, Link! Yes, what Jose said. Ketchup not needed here, just come on in (or up, if you've been in the Basement).

The Basement started out as the place that BlitzGirl would send people to if they tried to leave the OTT after the *nd. But it must have grown large enough to develop its own gravity, since now it just seems to suck people in on its own. Including BlitzGirl. :cry:
