Song of the Day: Life Is So Peculiar

Was Louis Armstrong ever involved with anything that wasn’t great? I love the whimsicality of this track, and the lively interplay between Armstrong and Louis Jordan. If this doesn’t put you in a good mood, you must be a real sourpuss.

    These graphics are pretty amazing. I’d go see a Pixar movie with characters that looked like these.

    I think I found my niche as a guy who only has enough artistic talent to be able to create good looking characters using video game avatar creation tools. Somebody should hire me to do this.

  • ALL of these Avatars you displayed are some of the best I’ve seen…but the middle right picture of the dark skinned female with facial tatoo (Minmatar race?) takes the prize.

    I would love to create one like it for my Minmatar mercenary female in Dust 514, but unfortunately 514 has NO character creator engine. (You EVE players have all the luck and luxury, LOL).

    Is this avatar copyrighted by you, or may I have your permission to use it as my chosen avatar in the Official Playstation Network forums?

    Please let me know…I will respect whichever decision you make.
    My User name in the forums is Chedwidden, and I’ve only been a Dust 514 player for 23 days.

    Thanks and keep up that great work!!

      Sorry, I almost never check comments when I’m not actively blogging. I doubt I could copyright any of these images even if I wanted to. And I don’t play EVE anymore, anyway, so do as you will! 😉

EVE Online Character Creator

You know, it may seem as though I’ve completely given up on this blog. And I have!

Well, not entirely. I did mean to write a couple of short reviews of The Unknown and Black Swan, but I’ve been pretty lazy lately. So instead, I thought I’d just share a few of the character portraits that I’ve worked up in the EVE Online character creator. Does anybody care? No, probably not. But I’m just in awe, really, of how great this thing is.

Why I hate Star Wars fans

On one of the forums I frequent, somebody posted a link to this article alongside the statement “there is no god”. The article details two changes to the blu-ray issues of Star Wars: A New Hope and The Return of the Jedi. In ANH, George Lucas decided to change the sound of the Krayt dragon call that Obi-wan produces, while in RotJ, he dubbed in Vader saying, “No….Noooo” when saving Luke from the Emperor at the end of the film. Naturally, a flurry of posts ensued detailing what a tool Lucas is and how much he hates the fans.

Jesus Christ. I like these movies as much as anybody, but I think William Shatner said it best.
