Entry #100, Made At Newgrounds

4/27/14 by VicariousE

What can I say just now?  I came, I saw, I met.  It's a fantasy in the movies, where the war reporter huddles up against a wall that isn't being shot at, and actually takes the time to write out, what you've plainly just seen on screen.

See in NJ, God willing.

There isn't a good band today to replace The Beatles. Their legends live forever!

6/5/14 VicariousE responds:

When they broke on the scene decades ago, the world was a perfect blank slate, a vacant field filled with nutritious shit.


Who do you think is the best from The Beatles? I personally love both John Lennon and George Harrison.

6/4/14 VicariousE responds:

The best? All 4 of them... it's hard to pick a favorite kid from the litter. Could certainly do without Yoko tho :\


John Lennon circa 1965; love The Beatles.

I've made it a habit to record exactly how much time I spend animating; 8 hours in: http://www.newgrounds.com/dump/item/4fcbb9b70c72e9912b96cb4024cc5072

6/3/14 VicariousE responds:

The last few times I really danced, was to an early Beatles song, over 20 years ago... Then I got talking to my car insurance agent, who turned out to be a video producer, then I got into video production for a number of years. Then my equipment died, Bush the second took power, 9/11... it's been downhill ever since.

Thanks for the update, looks like a slice of life I once knew, minus the bird poop and exotic locations. Back in the 70's, there were a lot more particulates in the atmosphere, as such, every thing was exceptionally green (fine dust particles reflect sunlight to more parts of vegetation). Then as things 'cleaned up' invasive plant and bug species titled my boyhood world... eh, don't mind me.


thanks man I appreciate it, means a lot.

Also that's Jimmy Page lol, though that reminds me, I should probably get around to changing it...

6/3/14 VicariousE responds:

I've spent plenty of days in the windowless room, with very few IRL ppl to cheer me on... least I can do is show my appreciation for the days you've put in.

Cripes, the old icon looked just like this (to my crappy eyes) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frampton_Comes_Alive! well, the picture on the back of the album anyway... So who am I looking at now? Looks more like a mod than a rocker....


it's vicariouse

6/3/14 VicariousE responds:

that's me (rhymes, you see)

Hey, I lurked that animation link you sent gamejunkie, really good looking work man. You really are a bonefide animator and storyteller. Any time you're hard up for a weird anecdote or somescriptshit, feel free to lurk my old newsposts (and occasional BBS post)

Only problem I have, is that every time I see your usericon - peter. frampton. ._. He was purged from my musical nervous system some time ago lol....

seeds are more fun and less expensive if you've already got good soil...I have more success with transplants...though that's usually used for bigger plants

5/29/14 VicariousE responds:

Mmm, same here, got spoiled for so long. Farm hasn't had a hot bed in many years.. the last one was some windows laid out on 2 by 8's, made venting easy. Storm broke em, the end.


S3CS3C

5/29/14

Oh. I thought you meant the flash player locking up.

What kind of peppers?? Yeah dude....gotta get the soil at an ideal loamy texture, all about that delicate balance between trapping nutrients in the soil pores, but not too thick so that it doesn't drain..

C'est la vie...

5/29/14 VicariousE responds:

It has, but not on any mainstream site or with mainstream streaming players... so far.

Right. I forgot what happened to my Pop when he tried it last century... usually just buy 'flats' from the locals, and put em all in and maintain/protect/feed/water/deweed/harvest them

Precisely. I never took French, so I gots no clue on spelling.


DoomroarDoomroar

It can always be worse, and it can always be better...

5/28/14 VicariousE responds:

Such is life.


DoomroarDoomroar

5/28/14

Well damn seems like luck is not playing on your team for now.

5/28/14 VicariousE responds:

Luck and fate are two capricious bitches alright... but, hey, I've been doing okay, could always be worse.


S3CS3C

5/28/14

lockups?? i get those all the time....seems like its time for us to upgrade our rigs...but like going to the gym, it's been something i've planned to do for years but there's a remote possibility it will actually happen lol..atleast the new embed option allows me to stream sick tunes here on newgrounds without all the extraneous page content

should have went with the gmo crop (joking)

5/28/14 VicariousE responds:

Oh man, I couldn't even get online for a few hours today.. almost went to Best Buy to get a wifi thingy. Considering all the terabytes I've been dumping into this antique, it's a wonder it's still working! Must've been a hardware problem, not that the HW diagnostic would've picked up on it... they never do >:(

I think it's my fault. I tried to grow pepper seeds, but the peppers I got them from, were sterile. That sucked, so I bought seeds and put them in the little mini-planters with the pre-existing potting soil. Problem: dirt was now too dense, unfluffy from watering. I thought I had broken it up enough by massaging the bottoms of the thin plastic receptacles.... there's 3 or 4 popping out of over a hundred :| Maybe a few more will germinate, we'll see


DoomroarDoomroar

5/27/14

Wow now that really sucks, but none of the seeds? total devastation and were you planting anything else?

5/28/14 VicariousE responds:

My cousin already has beets growing, and bought some flats (seedlings), but I might scrape up a few, just so I can make some money this year |:


DoomroarDoomroar

5/27/14

Mmmh, wish you luck with that.

5/27/14 VicariousE responds:

I'll probably just ignore the problem best I can... just like making a new post.

None of my seeds came up, likely due to something wrong with the potting soil :( Just don't care about anything anymore


DoomroarDoomroar

5/26/14

Damn looks bad, updated drivers and flash and the problem persist?

5/26/14 VicariousE responds:

I installed some auto updating program to my computer... and still, FF says I should upgrade to the next version of graphic drivers |: Like Lucy, she keeps pulling the ball away.... Maybe I should try reinstalling directx 9.


DoomroarDoomroar

5/26/14

Bugs when the video charges? or in the middle of it?

5/26/14 VicariousE responds:

I've been getting cube artifacts, problems scanning on certain streaming players, lockups :\


DoomroarDoomroar

5/25/14

Aaaah, right the footage i still have to watch parts 3 and 4, damn oh well luckily YouTube added that speed x 2 feature.

5/25/14 VicariousE responds:

I think I'm in the beginning of part 3, just so disappointed with how little the camera took in :(

Noticed some really crappy bugs with the new version of Flash recently, I'm sure it's mostly due to my ancient laptop, and it's missing directx support.


DoomroarDoomroar

5/25/14

A month already how time flies.

Oh i will have to send him my thanks then!

5/25/14 VicariousE responds:

Yup, Memorial Day is tomorrow, big holiday for veterans.

Definitely! I imagine he went through a lot of hoops, to record and encode the footage to YT....


DoomroarDoomroar

5/25/14

Haha well you can always type in one of the normal places on NG then pass it to the actual blog, is practically the same amount of work and tediousness.

BTW finally got around to read Vault 101, didn't knew about the Plantago major what a plant, so many uses!

5/25/14 VicariousE responds:

That's probably what I'm gonna do... tomorrow marks 1 month since the Pico party :\

If it wasn't for Cyberdevil, I wouldn't even have known the name of the weed!


DoomroarDoomroar

5/25/14

Oh you could also use Yahoo or Hotmail/Outlook.
Apple? pff haha, good joke.

5/25/14 VicariousE responds:

I've got yahoo for mail, but wanna cancel it with a passion |:

5/25/14

How good was the past?

5/25/14 VicariousE responds:

It was free, undiluted and most importantly, it was real. These days lies and the internet take on a life of their own, diminishing the sweetness of real life.


DoomroarDoomroar

5/24/14

Mmh what about online word processors? Gmail allows you to use office and everything else.

5/24/14 VicariousE responds:

Don't like or trust Google. I was talking about my Apple IIc program/word processor from the mid 80's...


DoomroarDoomroar

5/23/14

Of course it will, and if it doesn't... ever tried Open Office?

5/23/14 VicariousE responds:

Eh? I tried using it in WIN 98, and it told me to go fuck myself |: Yeah, I've tried OO, it's fine program, but I might as well tough it out this way.... My first word processor was about 70kb on a 128kb system, could write about 6 or7 pages before I had to save to floppy disk.


DoomroarDoomroar

5/23/14

No, no i mean that i forgot that you made that post so i have to actually check it haha.
Yeah i recently decided to write things first on the normal blog, then pass them to Microsoft Word and check the spelling, but meh, that is too much work XD.

5/23/14 VicariousE responds:

I don't think my copy of MS Works 95 (old cheapie version of MS Word) will work anymore....


DoomroarDoomroar

5/23/14

Man to tally forgot that you made a post about with the photos i have to check that.

5/23/14 VicariousE responds:

Nah, I didn't forget, I'm just practicing my procrastination skills... man, I hate the new blog system :| Gonna write it in one of these fields, then see if it'll transfer over. Spellcheck doesn't work in the .rtf blogging thingy :|


PenePene

5/20/14

I knew exactly who you were lmao, you're unmistakeable, I'll try to take a look at the streams


PenePene

5/20/14

Haha hey man, I believe we met at Pico Day and shook hands. Your cool.

5/20/14 VicariousE responds:

I was the short, fat, older guy with the sloppy gold tie! Damn (my age and buzzed uppedness), I don't remember you :( I'll be making a new post soon, maybe you can point yourself out! Did you get in front of the webcam early in the party? I've got Cyberdevil's YT links of the stream, maybe you can tell me which stream and what time!


S3CS3C

5/16/14

yo n***a i'm gonna put some that shit (rabbit's ear) on a salad!!!

impolite you say...what's impolite is when people comment on a blog post sitting on 10,000 comments lol

5/16/14 VicariousE responds:

Pss, like I care, I'm a communication whore... everyones earlier posts are usually crap, like mine :\
I got yelled at for commenting on old posts in the past... no idea why.


KatMaestroKatMaestro

5/15/14

We're currently using Skype. Well, Chronamut has an IRC channel on quakenet, but he's mainly a dick so not many people visit there.

If you want, I can add you on Skype and invite you there. We have like nearly 100 people there.

5/15/14 VicariousE responds:

Huh, really? I don't use skype sadly, but maybe one day....


KatMaestroKatMaestro

5/15/14

I didn't know you could get invited there. Awesome.

5/15/14 VicariousE responds:

Stands to reason... it's Tom's party, if you wanna go, ask him! You've certainly contributed enough to the site to be considered! BTW, do you have any ideas about what NG could use for a Chat page?


KatMaestroKatMaestro

5/15/14

I went through all the Pico photos (that was the hell a lot of them, took me days to sort out the good, bad and funny ones) and I wanna slap myself for not going there...

And then I was confused "how da heck do I post on his latest post" and reality slapped me that I could go back to this post and reply...

I'm such an idiot.

5/15/14 VicariousE responds:

I know I should've cropped a lot more of them, deleted at least half a dozen... also I'm sorry I listed them in reverse (linear) order :\ Could you have gone? If NG is still in business next year, ask Tom for an invite!

I've had to sit on making a proper post about the party... lot of unexpected things happened. And don't sweat the mild brain fart, it's almost kinda impolite to comment on old posts, but I wanted a vacation from some stuff, and to set up a link dump of sorts, still needs more content...


S3CS3C

5/14/14

Seems like you need a new blog post, or at the very least, open up the comments on your latest one....source: I am the only user to comment on your blog over the past week lol

5/14/14 VicariousE responds:

Yeah it's been a nice vacation, but tonight I'm going to work on a Pico Day post, probably publish sometime Thursday. The new blog edit page, really sucks, very badly |:


S3CS3C

5/12/14

I wonder if I have the most blog comments on NG...you didn't get your account back on until about 1/3 way throughout 2010...cyberdevil took a 2-3 year leave. I've been consistently visiting this site since I joined in mid 2007, maybe missing 2 weeks at a time at most

5/12/14 VicariousE responds:

Oh, you mean total comments you've made across the site? Could be! I know Cyberdevil comes close, I see his name (and mine) on a lot of dead accounts. Viper(50) might be in the top 10, he used to do the blogs heavy before he got sucked into the BBS.

It'd be nice if there was a way to get those numbers totaled... like the post count in the BBS.


S3CS3C

5/7/14

hey, I heard you have Pico day pics. When are you going to post them??

(don't mind me, just contributing to the cacophony)

5/7/14 VicariousE responds:

After the 3rd request, I kinda figured it was turning into a running joke.
I'd zip and dump the whole thing to be done with it... but I gotta get the size down to something doable....

How much HD space are you willing to sacrifice, to see rather boring shots of Pico Day attendees, many of whom you'll never ever never ever meet?


Wait... do you have photos from Pico day? :D

5/7/14 VicariousE responds:

Yeah, just waiting for a rainy day to clean, crop, and consolidate the 120 or so pics...


DoomroarDoomroar

5/6/14

When is a fart useful? XD.

I actually torrented that movie, i just need the time and i will watch it, taking into acount that was good enough to make you write such a detailed mmmh reenacting? of that scene.
Both 12 Monkeys and Freejack seem more interesting than Millennium haha, however this image here is quite intriguing: http://image.tmdb.org/t/p/original/gP98VTcw1MtdMxkWmnGzoBy1obd.jpg it reminds me of Hellraiser.


ZJZJ

5/5/14

Where's the photos matey? :D

5/6/14 VicariousE responds:

Down in the hold, skipper. :p
I'll get around to making a post when it's raining out. Gotta get the grass cut, seed put in... spring's a bitch :|


digsBotdigsBot

5/5/14

Ahhh man, I really wanted to talk to you about Asterix! Along with the other stuffs too! Try to gain any wisdom from such a sage as yourself. Actually yeah I met Shadman! Super nice and humble dude!

Haha ah man, that cake was outta this world. Oh yeah he mentioned that! Much props to the man

5/5/14 VicariousE responds:

Damn, everybody got cake but me and the Tom... Eh, like a lot of old men, my wisdom comes on like burps and farts: unexpected and rarely useful.


WhirlguyWhirlguy

5/4/14

That's cool :)
Hey, did you ever get around to uploading those photo's? I'm curious about them.

5/6/14 VicariousE responds:

Noooo. Got halfway through editing them, there's a lot pics and I kinda got to... triage them |:


DoomroarDoomroar

5/4/14

That was a great review/resume i will definitively give it a search, however i am not so sure about Millennium, the premise of "A detective searching the cause of an airline accident ends meeting a warrior woman from 1000 years in the future" doesn't really helps much into catching my attention there must be more about that movie, any insight about that one?

5/6/14 (Updated 5/6/14) VicariousE responds:

Eh, Millennium was a unique sci-fi, even for the 80's. In a way, it's kinda like the 12 Monkeys (Bruce Willis), where the future is so bad, we look to the past for a solution... In Millennium, the solution was similar to Freejack: take ppl from the past (right before death) and send them to an even more distant future, where the human race can start over again.

After all, the future is fatal for humans lol

Yeah, try Freejack first, I'm sure you can find it on YouTube or http://stagevu.com/


S3CS3C

5/4/14

Dude fuck baseball! the NBA playoffs have been unreal. the weather's just great, not too hot, yet hot enough for chicks to reduce their amount of clothing...yesterday's lottery numbers where 6 17 23 45 66 & 77, i never changed my dog's spark plugs and that's not green jello it's alien semen.

5/6/14 VicariousE responds:

Somehow I feel like we're making conversation in jury duty lol!


DoomroarDoomroar

5/4/14

Digitized immortality! that would be cool, maybe one day... well that they are extending their life spam doesn't really makes them immortal rich people, just old rich people, is not even longevity.

5/4/14 VicariousE responds:

IDK, check out the flick Freejack (Mick Jagger) and/or Millennium (Kris Kristofferson), both 80's flicks about time travel. In Freejack (spoiler) http://vicariouse.newgrounds.com/news/post/656767 Alex Furlong is taken from his moment of death, to a future, where his body is to be taken over by someone who's dead, and inside a computer. The computer can't hold the consciousness indefinitely, only for a few days.


digsBotdigsBot

5/4/14

It was an honor meeting you! : D Cake was absurdly delicious!

5/4/14 VicariousE responds:

Likewise man... shit we never did talk about Asterix, Chi-town, or your work/wellspring of your creativity! Ha, with all the guests around, it was hard not to schmooze up a storm. You meet Shad?

No caek for me and Tom. Someone put his leftovers in one of the bags I brought the cakes in, and we thought there was still one left in the fridge. I got home, my frig still smelled like 'em :o They were all for the guests anyway. Tom gave me a lift to the hotel, he's a safe driver.


DoomroarDoomroar

5/3/14

@S3C Makes sense...

But we humans are still mortal, the human condition seems quite the same...

5/3/14 VicariousE responds:

I think digitized immortality might precede AI... the world contains too many old rich ppl.


S3CS3C

5/3/14

I think I have presented a huge misconception...milf stands for for mother i'd love to fuck, while gilf universally stands for grandmother i'd loathe to fuck

5/3/14 VicariousE responds:

Yep, I concur
Now, let's move it along, nothing to see here...

How about those Mets? Some weather we've been having.... What were yesterday's lottery numbers? The dog's bleeding green Jello again, when was teh last time you changed its spark plugs?


DoomroarDoomroar

5/3/14

Yeah, yeah, you are rigth Mr @S3C but it can't be a Gilf if her daughter is not a mother, thus we end having a really really old mom, i refuse to believe there are octogenarians that count as Milfs... hell do Gilfs themselves even exist? probably... if they where teen moms, and now their daughters are also teen moms... what has the world come to? na i bet in old times that was normal.

You are not that old man, i give you another 40 years, so when you are 80 she is 60, and both of you are wasted old anyways XD, probably living together in a retirement home, doing orgies whit other old people, enjoying dem STD's... wait what? how do you even get it up at that age!? and... how is that you 2 are so well informed about that theme? XD hahaha.

5/3/14 VicariousE responds:

Eh, they got Viagra for both men and women. Science is outpacing the human condition...


S3CS3C

5/3/14

LOL! I actually heard something similar occurring in psychiatric wards. Why do you know that anyway

5/3/14 VicariousE responds:

Either read it or heard it over the radio a while back... bluh 'sexy seniors', don't too sound too sexy....
It happened at the juvenile detention facility near me... they thought they could split the campus to house girls and boys, of course, the boys found a way in to their cottages... idiotic administration, as always.


S3CS3C

5/3/14

WTF Doomroar? Octogenarian (sick word choice dude) flabby wabblies clearly wouldn't classify under MILF....that would be GILF....which is a whole 'nother ballgame.

5/3/14 VicariousE responds:

What's weird and somewhat expected, is that retirement homes have seen a surge in STD's lately... guess it's really boring at these places, and they sometimes bring in unclean 'company'. Gross.


NorNor

5/3/14

Didn't know which one of your newspost to thank you in but I guess i'll do it here, thanks again vicarious! I wont screw it up again, I rarely post on the forums anymore maybe I'll post a bit more idk...... and thanks @bumfodder too

<3<3

5/3/14 VicariousE responds:

Oh that's okay, we know you're a good sort, just don't let the poop-speakers get you down!


DoomroarDoomroar

5/3/14

No no Mr @S3C attractive older women (30+) are known as cougars not Milfs, get your sex slang right XD.
Pff older people with younger people is creepy regardless of sex, but i guess some just like dose octogenarian flabby wabblies... goddammit S3C that is not cute at all!

Marriage for life? haha, yeah tell that to my parents XD.

5/3/14 VicariousE responds:

Yeah, that's the thing... who wants to get married or into a LTR, when there's a good possibility of one of the two prematurely checking out? My days are certainly numbered....


S3CS3C

5/3/14

in society, the general opinion (including my own) is that it's creepy for an older man to date a younger women, yet it's perfectly acceptable even "cute" maybe for an older woman to date a younger man. Ironically, it's much more common to see a couple of the former lol

5/3/14 VicariousE responds:

Yup, though it probably isn't that taboo in places like Brazil, but you're right, it's a double standard of sorts. It's just unfair that women and men mature differently, different ages for sexual peaks and all.


S3CS3C

5/3/14

oops, i didnt know about that- sorry to invoke traumatic memories of the distant past. But surely I do not need to point out the huge disparity in mentalities between a 20 year old and a 7 year old...or do you believe that 20 year olds aren't mature enough to make decisions, regardless?

and I didn't literally mean a mother- MILF is just a blanket term describing attractive older women (30+). Though I don't see why anyone would feel awful about getting with one, granted she was single...

5/3/14 VicariousE responds:

It's okay, it could've been worse I suppose, I was rather mature for my age, despite not having pubes at the time. The worst was when her sister found out and got my older brother involved, then I had to lie to cover, what they stirred up.

Oh, I thought Cougar covered older women in general. At least there's chicks my age who look ten years younger and all...
