Hiding out

2014-03-25 07:10:29 by VicariousE
Updated

I've been visiting other people's blogs here, for a very long time.  Recently, I let my blog responses go for a few days.  There's "68 new blog replies" showing on the FP, and I don't wanna look at 'em, for the foreseeable future.  While I'm grateful for not being ignored, I think it's time for me just to sit back, and let you kids visit me for a change.131385_139574554811_59758.png

All in a day's work.  It's not glamourous, or healthy for me, but it will be done.


Easter Update:  The quickening is here, and soon the long, bumpy drive to points unseen will begin, and the air of Newgrounds will be made manifest in the real world, breathing, laughing, breeding, seeing from many diverse viewpoints.  We are many, we are different, but we all come to the same place, the place that Tom and Wade built.

 

It's times like this I realize, it truly is love that makes the world go 'round.  It's sad to see the world turn to anger, and worrysome to feel the Earth slow, right before a massive crash.  We sieze the moments of happiness where we can, because they can never come back again, and can keep us alive in dark times. Despite it's overuse, 'hope' is really all we have... and I've never known hope, when she wasn't on a diet |:

Who are you calling a kid? Do I get an exemption? A get out of jail free card?

VicariousE responds:

Damn, lol! I think you're the only exception here!

Of course, there's more than a few old accounts still statwhoring, and not saying boo to anyone (at least publicly)... I might've sent a PM to a few of them, a few years back - no reply; possibly non-English speakers, or bots (robo save-whores, that explains everything!)

Did Asterix fart? It smells like Cabbage in here.

VicariousE responds:

I hope not, I had Spam and Brussel sprouts today, don't wanna know what that smells like.
I wouldn't be surprised if there was a sprite up there, that did though :)

Oh man, I just laid 2 farts in 2 different tones.... so proud! The smell is frightening, but not strong.

2014-03-25 07:31:20

Maybe it's just old man smell!

VicariousE responds:

Yeah, I noticed recently. I took a leaf blower to some of the brickwork in the house a month or so ago. Now it's starting to smell like my old man did, a few years before he and my Ma died.

As it was said in Wayne's World, if you book them, they will come. They will flock to your page like a mini army of VicWorshippers all ready to do your every bidding.

But they wont do your actual bidding. That's for the auction guests to sort out.

So many Asterix postures!

VicariousE responds:

Wayne's World (despite it focus on public access TV) was probably the last film from SNL I'd watch... or SNL for that matter :| All vicarious minions, attack Lorne Michaels, bring me his microscopic sack.

Oh :( Yeah, like the auction here, they basically took everything that wasn't nailed down or on fire, including some parts to farm equipment we needed.

Dunno which game it's from; they were all terribly bad side-scrollers. Maybe one day, I'll put them in motion... alongside Krinkel's minions.

I'll only visit if there's free food... preferably cake or pie... or cookies. Anything chocolate, really.

VicariousE responds:

You know I was going to say I might bake cookies... but I haven't had the itch to do so since my parents passed away, my Ma had the baking touch. The trick is to use granulated brown sugar and a touch of baking powder, and slightly less than 2 eggs (or 2 of the smallest eggs you have), then they rise quite nicely!

Sry, I killed off the Nestle's dark chocolate chips, rather expensive to eat out of the bag.

Oooh, Newgrounds was down for maintenance earlier. Did something awesome happen just now? I mean, apart from you signing in to your account? ;D

VicariousE responds:

Damn lol, again? I was gonna put up the old "NG out of order" sign, the one that popped up recently with the DNS server folk.

Something? Well this time last week, my sis said the farm was likely to be sold soon, and I'd have 90 days to clean up 2 properties, get all the stuff I wanna keep, out, somewhere.... and find a new place to live. That's enough to curdle anyone's milk :| I guess I do want the farm and the small house next door sold... but I'd rather the State and town take a flying fuck, and reduce our taxes.

2014-03-25 16:37:32

did you make these? if so then I like them

VicariousE responds:

Oh good gravy, no man! They came from a cartridge, made by a software company. Every Asterix game I ever read about, had really crappy reviews.... plus they were really hard to find in the States anyway, as they were distributed more for Europe, South America... pretty much everywhere else but America.

Oh that's right, you live on a farm. Must be pretty spacious! It really sucks that you have to move out. How long have you been living there?

VicariousE responds:

I've been here most of my life, aside from a stint in California that barely lasted a year. It's spacious, but we're 60% surrounded by McMansions, so I can't blast crop damaging deer, crows, geese, groundhogs...

Spyro in a game of Asterix!!!? that has to be a good game.

How is the deal with the farm going?

VicariousE responds:

Cross-promotionalism? In the 20th century, that was a rare thing, aside from multinational movies, which take advantage of small groups, with specific assets (and tax breaks, grants). Lol, Spyro I guess was the guy who made up the sprite sheet... I think good ol' Cyberdevil turned me onto this site... great :| can't find it now, but it's like one of the last, big, sprite databases. Man, in the late 90's, you couldn't get away from those sites... ganked unusual pictures galore!

OMG a faaaaaaarm :D
Do you have cows there?
Or sheep?
Or geese?
Or ducks?
Or goldfish?
Or kangaroos?
Or elephants?
Or blue whales?
Or DRAGONS?? :D

(Oh yeah, this reminds me , i think goldfish don't belong in farms : / )

VicariousE responds:

At one time there was chickens, pigs, steer and sheep... but the 2 sheep were just pets to the younger family, used to buck them when they weren't looking... would creep up from behind, and WHAM! They were called Jackie, lol, should've been named Hobbes!

No, a veggie farmer, tomatoes, peppers and pumpkins and such. Not a critter farmer, or a sod farmer, or a seed farmer.... Worm farming sounds interesting: composting old food with dirt and worms = profit! Worm castings (poo) is the world's best fertilizer... ever see little pebble-like little hills on healthy dirt, after the rain? Castings! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Worm_castings

My Mom had 2 toy poodles named Chip...

Wow that really sucks! So now there's people preventing you from doing your work properly. They really ought to think before they move to the country! It must be really hard on you to leave a place you've grown so accustomed to.

VicariousE responds:

Well, blasting cute critters isn't a part of the normal routine, but damn, it is necessary. Once we had a permit to shoot up to a 100 dear, we didn't get close, but man, other farms around me (very few) did bag their limit. There isn't much countryside left in NJ, taxes and population are moving south from NYC quite rapidly.

Yeah, it's gonna suck some major balls being the last one off the ancestral home :(


DoomroarDoomroar

2014-03-26 05:46:51

Oh? damn, i was getting my hopes up of a game of Asterix riding on Spyro, that would have been so random, and also incredible!

VicariousE responds:

I gotta watch... this IS a site for publishers of games and other content... I'm just an old fan-boy


DoomroarDoomroar

2014-03-26 05:49:45

What your farm doesn't has whales or dragons!? what else here is lie tell me Mr Vicarious! where do babies come from! i bet it has nothing to do with birds!

VicariousE responds:

Nope, no land whales... our main critter area's fence was cleaned up of weeds lately, but as such, has been weakened to the point, any hoofed animal would be under minimum security.

If you own a pet here in NJ, it gets out and into the road and causes an accident, the PET/ANIMAL OWNER, is responsible! ...and babies come from females, after they've gotten 'their needs' taken care of :|


tailsbuddytailsbuddy

2014-03-26 05:54:26

Worm castings?!
I thought they were baby worm eggs

My whole life is a lie D:

VicariousE responds:

Lol, I used to play with them! Once I moved up to the farm around 6 years old... a lot of work (and learning) followed.


Oh-SamaOh-Sama

2014-03-26 09:51:31

I wish I were a kid with my actual perception of the world and can log in here whenever I want to :)

I guess I played through the game.. Now looking at that punch I remember how often I used to charge-attack and beat those roman soldiers.. Yeah surely I have played that game and it was fun back then...
Probably I should give it another shot one day :)

VicariousE responds:

I know that feel man.

I'm certain there's reviews of the game out there.... of whichever game I have the sprite sheet of? Just hoping you didn't waste too many minutes of your life, waiting for the punch to charge.... there weren't many Asterix games that were well reviewed. There was like 1 or 2 games for the Genesis in the US, but damn if I could find them.... I was just more or less happy for any kind of exposure of Asterix in the States!

VicariousE responds:

I'm getting to that young man, it's too breezy outside.... still need to find another camera for Pico Day, as the attendees will be more lively, than what GJ sent me, and in very low light conditions.

Wayne's World, truly one of the few films that could make me laugh until I couldn't breathe back in the day.

Like the auction here? Or like the auctioneer? Or maybe it was auction near to yours where all the stuff that wasn't nailed down was taken, like Liam Neeson's daughter. And you had to phone them up and say, "look if you give me back my stuff, that'll be the end of it.. But if you don't... I will find you.. and I will kill you. I do this for a living."

What about an Asterix yoga flash?

(Updated ) VicariousE responds:

I should rewatch it.... I found UHF to be more apropos to public access, more desperate.

Ah no, my brother and sister had an auctioneer in here to sell of my Pop's tools and equipment. There's just enough stuff left to keep farming.... Whatever my sister was told or read in a book, the auction was basically a structured giveaway, a firesale, of some very old and expensive things..... too late, it's all moot now :|

Meh, I'd blam it, unless it was highly produced, gimmicked up :p

Liam Neeson's daughter..... good thing I saw Taken lol. Not a bad movie, just not my cup of joe.

Weird enough, NG has no games of Asterix, or so it seems...

VicariousE responds:

Huh, thought there was at least one, but it's been a wile since I checked... maybe under Obelix...


DoomroarDoomroar

2014-03-26 18:15:56

Sounds like a kinda barren farm if you put it like that.

It would be weird to put the blame on the animal itself.
Oh that must be why they call it baby making!

VicariousE responds:

Well, it's a bit hilly in spots, crops would just wash away and plowing is a nightmare

Every kid needs a guardian here, to be responsible for the actions of another... so they extended that to kept critters as well... gives me more incentive not to get the cats legit with licenses.

VicariousE responds:

I liked it when it came out, but it smacks of cheesy New England pop rock, and Elton John... not to say I don't enjoy the genre, it's just the laundry listing of all the contentious issues, with a water weak solution of dealing with social engineering. (Insert Pee Wee Herman saying "Eeeeeeenugh!")


DoomroarDoomroar

2014-03-26 22:06:20

Na 0 results either case =(

Only a bit hilly or do you get proper hills?
Cats take care for themselves they don't need no "masters" (selfish little bastards).

VicariousE responds:

Getting less hilly, but there's a decent one just outside the house, can use the lawnmower there okay, lots of sledding, dirt bikes, snowmobiles, quads and trikes that went over it, also tractors, trucks.... all downhill, no jumps to speak up, just a divot that can hurl up up in a jiffy, if you're not careful.

Eh, about half of them are really good cats though, they listen... but damn you have to be crafty about it. I think they carry a virus that makes humans do their bidding, cat scratch fever.... duh, nuh, nah..

That's the first time in my life that I have ever heard that song. I immediately recognised it when I listened because The Simpsons did a parody version. You're right, it does just list a lot of random things from history, certain figures etc. Anyone could do that. I always think all these political songs are never going to change the attitudes of those in power, who want to keep power and wealth and enjoy power, wealth and control. Can you imagine the rich elite sitting there saying, "Hmm this Billy Joel song really taught me a moral lesson today. Or any political song really."

I will have an occasional poltical dabble and rant, but apart from that, I'm just one little bug on a ball of green and blue. I get one life, it's quite a fine line between life and death, the big things are out of my hands. So instead of getting involved politically, I'll just sit back, enjoy my life the best I can, find my happiness from the small things outside of money such as nature and the creative arts. As far as I'm concerned, I want to be dead to the political world, they live their lives ringfenced away from society, yet make the laws for society. If there's one thing you can't control, it's other people's stupidity, as a collective, the world could change overnight, but there just aren't enough alphas in the flock to lead a charge. They are all in the militaries and will set the charges. Sad but true.

Yep, we are each just one insect. It is better to live and to enjoy your life than worry about anything outside of the scope. Que Sera Sera.

Pee Wee Herman, creepy bloke. I used to watch Pee Wee Herman's Playhouse as a kid and it scared the berjeezus out of me. Pee Wee Scareman.

VicariousE responds:

Yeah, talking to anyone outside a certain pay-grade, is like conversing with a brick wall, with an 8-track set on loop, embedded within it... repeating the same spiel for the plebiscites.

You're right about the alphas, and what's worse, our President has been shifting military leaders around, based on loyalty and what his (probably communists) 'party' wants. Same with the IRS... but not the banks... almost seems like the CIA is their right hand... but what's that matter to me, or anyone else living a normal life? Hopefully nothing.

Ah, I did watch just a few of those episodes, and thought they were highly creative, a pre-cursor to Spongebob, almost.

Have you ever wished the Asterix universe becomes real? The Gauls once existed but what happens if they live at the same era as we do?! :3 my childhood is full of Asterix memories.

VicariousE responds:

Real? Maybe, when I first started reading the comics around age 6 or 7. I'd always hoped the 'magic potion' was real, even tried making it myself lol

You imagine the kinda shitstorm if that group were around Calais today?! Can only wonder what kind of trouble they'd get into

the world needs less middle man and more farmers!

VicariousE responds:

Well, if it's a rolling harvest, then yeah, but usually we get a couple bushels of stuff ready all at once, and it's a pain trying to cash in, while the weeds are strangling the stuff that's not ready yet... Middlemen make up over half the population, and they usually don't play nice, or work very hard.


DoomroarDoomroar

2014-03-28 18:47:55

Oh so it is like one big down slope?

When they rub themselves against you, is not really to show affection, but them marking their territory on you...

VicariousE responds:

Kinda like a 2 stage.. 2/3rds steep downhill, then an easier slope.

Oh I know... and now the ticks are here, thanks to the deer, which go where they want. I really need a drone with an infrared light and remote video camera on it, to chase them away, Probably have to be a gas powered rig :P


DoomroarDoomroar

2014-03-28 19:53:52

Is it good for small time snowboarding?

Oh man, drones everywhere lately, now even for deer scaring (at least is not for hunting... yet).

VicariousE responds:

No clue, but it's rare for the snow drifts there to be deep or consistent.

Still wish I could shoot/mortar/bomb them.


DoomroarDoomroar

2014-03-28 21:01:24

Sounds kinda weird actually, is that because you don't get enough snow, or because it is too steepy?

Are they really that big of a pain?

VicariousE responds:

Both, really.

Yeah, they are. Imagine working 8 hours and going to punch out, only to find your time card had been eaten by a deer..... One deer can destroy quite a lot of stuff, just a nibble here and there, and you're out a lot of money and sweat.


DoomroarDoomroar

2014-03-28 22:44:58

I see.

Mmmh are there any penalties for killing deer inside your property? XD.

VicariousE responds:

Yeah, but I'm ignorant of the law, because the law is ignorant of me and reality.


DoomroarDoomroar

2014-03-29 03:45:33

So you can get away with it? how good does deer meat taste? also do the authorities check these comments? can't you just leave the deer go with a warning? XD.

VicariousE responds:

Not for long. Very good, and not nearly as fatty as cow meat. Probably, but not locally, I don't think... they do have a camera network here in the States; the FBI administrates a privately operated national network of cameras (many, many more than the cops have access to).. the feeds from these go to private citizens (mostly business people, with 'critical civilian services'). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/InfraGuard

Deer don't text, deer don't reason, deer don't take warnings, deer always return.... they've become suburbanized, and as such, need more incentive to NOT be here. Plastic spinning at a high RPM should do the trick (at least 3-4 times a week, till finished). Sea salt fired from a shotgun would be okay... they make (made) those shells for riots and critters, but the salt eats the gun awfully fast.

i work in retail, so i'm a middle man by definition (but i work as hard as anyone)

VicariousE responds:

Selling communist goods to heard working Americans, hmmm? Ah, I've got little beef with the rank and file, so long as you're honest with customers... I guess if you get a commission though, all's fair in love and commerce. Retail is a constantly devolving game played by suits who forgot what goes on IRL, at least, that was my general experience in dealing with upper middle management types in consumer research....


DoomroarDoomroar

2014-03-29 06:29:09

Surveillance everywhere what an Orwellian society, but at least you know that it is actually happening.

But it seems that deer can be stopped so you can indeed gave them warnings, to chase them away, along with all their tastiness, but i don't like meat all that much anyway, so meh.

VicariousE responds:

Do I know? I imagine few people do, even those who work in Federal surveillance of the planet.... maybe that one commenter is right: Russia got awfully pushy, not long after Snowden roosted there.

Stopped for a day or two, then they return.. and I can't always catch them. As I said, it only takes one to cost you a few hundred dollars. We even try putting powdered lime on them, so when they come into bite, they get a snout full of ick.

Tell me about it, I really need to make a Faraday cage for my old computer gear. Though if the EM is strong enough, it probably won't matter. I'd love to sink a cache of electronics in Crater Lake, reel it in after a good jolt... though I wonder if water does a good enough job of filtering out EM.

Well i personally like to imagine myself talking with a government official each time i come across NSFW content, i am all "hey man, you into this? kinda hot eh? what? you have seen better, sure you have you voyeurist pervert!".

Do they jump really high or is the fence not too tall? because it sounds like they enter with a lot of frequency, maybe they are Mexicans!? (racist joke not funny! but maybe it is?)

VicariousE responds:

For all intents and purposes, if you have porn on your HD in the US, they can get you for kiddie porn. Why? Unless it's stamped with all the required info (full company name, certified over 18, files on record kept by...), ANY porn can subjectively called kiddie porn. The actors have to 'look' a certain age, but the charges and legal scrutiny over the content is enough to bust whoever they go after.

No fence. They can jump 7 feet, and the cost of putting up a fence like that is quite steep.

Eh, still trying to get things lined up for Pico Day. I'm not sure if I want to get my hair buzzed off at the party... but I'm still going to email (in 2 languages, I hope) the hospital, and see where I can send the donation money. I happen to know the son of a famous Egyptian general who works nearby, but I'll probably just send a copy of the email to you for minor tweaks (to the computer generated translation).

oh man .. i can't imagine NG without you :')

2014-03-31 16:36:15

Well 16+ years old nowadays come with bodies that make 30+ years old women jealous, so i kinda understand but, come one really? that is pushing it!
However i do have seen myself saying: "no way you are not 25 you are bullshiting me" in real life, what a dangerous world we live in, jail bait everywhere, and smart jail bait to boot.
Anyway who in the hell downloads porn these days? haha it is the internet age! everything is in da cloud, even more for such things like porn!

Well now we know, damn but with no fence it is quite something that only deer are trespassing.
Aren't there other animals around? like dogs and the like?

VicariousE responds:

They can even bust you for files in your cache, but the mainstream porn sites are the only ones who respect privacy enough, to honor a 'clear cache' command to the browser... google and yahoo are notoriously famous for sticky tracking techniques.

No, even if there were dog packs around, they probably wouldn't be able to take down a deer. Besides, I couldn't let a dog out around here, with the road and houses so close now :\ Nope, it's gotta be a weaponized, all terrain Roomba :|


DoomroarDoomroar

2014-03-31 22:50:46

Is that so? well at best i know only of mainstream porn, so any more than that evades me.

I mean, dogs that don't have any link to you, and yet are entering your farm, like the deer, you get any of those cases?

VicariousE responds:

I meant commercial sites like youporn and xvideo, anything coming over torrents is probably quite illegal, though you'd think the old stuff would be clearly legit...

Hmmm, I had two doberman pincers face me down off my back porch... I made a noise, all the critters bolted 6 ways from Sunday. Small gated mansion a few houses down, they like to chase things at night |:

Doomroar seems to worry about the government discover his secret porn's folder. :3 You were totally correct on how the gov will frame you for kiddy porn. There is a latest article about the NSA and FBI hack into activists' computer and plant kiddy porns on their machines. These poor sods don't even know about it, until they get busted.

We live in a difficult time. Our government would do anything to protect their interests, even if they had to sacrifice the rights of being human.

If @Doomroar loves his porn so much, he should learn how to encrypt his hard drive... ;)

VicariousE responds:

Man, that's old news from around 1998 :| I used to keep my nose to the ground back then, and yeah, it's basically a legal way to frame someone, usually for filesharing... help the prosecution. Some judges were okay with filesharing.

The public is getting very specific with their distaste for government, just as you so plainly stated.

Know what pisses me off? I threw out an old mobo, that used to format HD's in a very specific way, probably completely clean a HD in 3 or 4 passes.

@Elitistinen lol my hard drive is free of porn, and everyone's else should also be, why would you save such content on your PC when you can just leave it on the cloud? secret porn folders are so 2004! XD.

VicariousE responds:

Free porn for everyone!!11! It strikes me funny, that prostitution is (mostly) illegal, but making porn is legal. Sex for money is okay, if you record it? Weird world.

Yeah but... then again why would you download porn when you can just simply use one of those commercial well known mainstream sites? i mean, really why?

Ah so you do get other animals passing by your farm, lol but i guess the deer are still the more troublesome.

I don't really care, at best i watch hentai that is posted here or if i really feel like it, i end in one of those mainstream sites, but yeah it is weird that sex for money is legal if you record it, indeed it makes no sense XD.

VicariousE responds:

If you have an old computer, sometimes it's better to play back video on videoLAN or something... the CPU power needed to decode and stream video, can be quite brutal, I can barely do 720 on YouTube, and they have one of the smoothest video players around.

Skunk, groundhog, raccoon, fox. We used to have muskrat, but they all got killed for fur, or couldn't survive without good running streams.... my Pop used to trap. He made 50$ a week sending pelts to Sears and Roebucks... damn good money back then.

God's laws or man's laws, that's the battle that 's going on right now - the US gov't wants to be God to it's people, and that ain't right.

Eh? but how much power can ve spend in just watching porn anyway? surely nothing much, unless you are into some 2 hour long HD premium stuff... but only the most dedicated perverts go for things like that, the rest are fine with the normal stuff, really i think that those trailers i put of the Boondocks on my post are more power consuming than most porn...

Man that is a lot of variety you used to get there, and you tell me that all that was gone in just one generation?

God's law? what is that even supposed to be? in the end is humans the ones that come up with laws, god is just a tool to justify whatever craziness they come up at the moment, so of course that it ends badly.

VicariousE responds:

Boondocks > porn? Might be too big a leap, but I know what you mean, perspective can be a dangerous thing.

Yeah, my Pop trapped, cleaned and made furs of game, in the early 40's and kept at it, till the muskrat/mink things petered out... gotta go further North to find those critters, I guess.

I mean that those 1 minute long YouTube videos consume more power and band running at 1080p than most porn that is in 320 or 480 and are 10 or more minute long.

How things have changed and now you only get deer.

VicariousE responds:

Oh sure, I understand that. There's still sites out there, that post little, .5 MB asx, avi, mov, and wmv files that barely run 10-20 seconds.

Yeah, all that good meat running around killing my veggies... I'd rather butcher the deer and make money that way, but there's laws about selling wild game |:

Are there? i confess but not even i can get off with just 20 seconds XD.

what about not selling it but just keeping it?

VicariousE responds:

Taxes are too expensive, even for a farm. Besides, my brother and sister live a thousand miles away, and want to cash in, and could care less about farming.

No, i mean the deer in case you eventually end killing it, not the farm.

VicariousE responds:

I don't think it's legal to sell deer meat, though it's fine to give it away. Eh, besides, it's getting warm out, and the black flies just love peeled deer....

I didn't save the link, but I read that animals are fleeing Yellowstone National park, which used to be a supervolcano a few times, in the distant past.

Stoked to meet and talk with ya about Asterix at Pico Day dude :D

(Updated ) VicariousE responds:

Absatively, me too! I'll be wearing my user icon pic since I'm just a lowly pleb :) Last Pico Day I was a total mess, I hadn't been sleeping thanks to an infected tooth, as well as other circumstances :p Guest list looks sweet so far!

Hey! How's your deal with the Frederation going, getting a lot of hits on YT, making bank yet?
