Saucy's Clinic of Dilettantism

Update completed after all. Queue’d for tomorrow (well, today). Decided to get it done now since I’ll be out all day casting aluminium again.

Sai just crashed, and apparently the button I bound to Ctrl+S unbound itself.

Just lost 2 hours work.

Giving up for the night. Expect delays.

Exact same problem happened again. I think I’m going to give up here. I was manually saving this time to be sure but nothing saved.

So incredibly frustrating. After the week or two I’ve just had I can’t summon the effort to fight my own PC.

Tintin & Lovecraft (source)

There’s a bunch of Lovecraft stuff on the internet that’s not worth your time. This is not one of those.

Tintin would be able to handle this shit like a pro, unlike 99.9% of Lovecraft’s ‘protagonists’. I would pay to read these.

Awesome.

Yeah these are actually terrific!

Always reblog.

Don’t cry don’t cry DON’T CRY DON’T CRY DON’T—

Goddammit.

Yeah no but seriously. Read it.

Ok, this is one of the coolest and most moving things I’ve read in a while. Going to have to look at the rest of the series (Common Grounds, if my google-fu is correct).

Been hearing this occasionally on Radio 1 at work over the past couple of weeks, and it’s been a genuine breath of fresh air among the rest of the stuff they play. Today I finally caught the band name and swiftly sought out their other stuff.

On BBC R1 this sort of thing really stands out, so I have to ask; how the fuck are this band getting airplay? Whatever their secret is, they need to share it with other interesting bands. If more music like this got played on R1 I’d be able to tolerate the lack of listening choice at work far easier.

Why do people suddenly seem to be using “lol” as punctuation? To my knowledge, “lol” means “laugh out loud”. I help out on a therapy website and quite a few people have said things like “I dunno it’s probably cause of my depression lol” or on here where some people respond to opinions with “Nope lol you’re wrong you asshat”. I just think it undermines whatever you say.

This is something I struggle with throughout my *internet travels.*I never use any shorthand internet expressions besides in tongue-in-cheek moments. And while I don’t mind people using them, yeah I agree with OP, it sometimes just weirdly kills the statement.But for me, my biggest issue has been with: XDI can’t stand XD.A lot of people use it, and it’s fine or whatever, but I have seen WAAAAY too many people use it as a way of allaying negativity. It’s the new “lol” for me."I’m a useless piece of shit XD""My art sucks XD"Just…It kills me. I mean if you want to talk about something negative, then let’s just do it. Don’t try to brush it off with…XD

I agree that using XD and lol in those contexts is baffling, but it has to be said that both are a vital part of text only communication. They are both tools that provide vital emotional context, and without them (and others) we run the risk of upcoming a vast gulf of misunderstanding.

Lineart complete for next Smirk, so time for my weekly preview of the bit I’m happiest with. I think General Tempest’s expression is pretty much spot on what I was aiming for.

THE BEST JOKE IN EXISTENCE

GOD I JUST TOLD SOMEONE ABOUT THIS STORY

This is one of the best pieces of comedy that I have ever had the pleasure of witnessing. I love this. I have been looking for this online for awhile.

I’m going to tag you every time I see this.

This clarifies things somewhat.

Well, Eich stepped down as CEO shortly after this whole furore came to light, but I recommend Opera if Chrome doesn’t work for you.

The main thing that strikes me about this post is how relaxed the blue guy looks. He’s just waving hello to the cyclopean monstrosities bearing down on him.
