The ‘Lightning Bolt’ is a close second.
I just put up a cartoon on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gPklf-sFfks
It’s based on a Hollywood Babble-on skit by Ralph Garman and Kevin Smith. I picked up a cheap copy of Anime Studio Debut 6 (cheap because when I went to register it I saw they were up to #8), and was able to bang this out rather quickly. I have some other ideas in the works, one I promised my daughter I’d do a while back so that’s next. The Debut version of the prog is rather handicapped, but that’s understandable since they want to sell their pro version ($199.99, yikes but reasonable compared to other progs). We’ll see what I can do with this version I have, and if I get into enough I’ll do the internet thing and beg people for the pro version.
I’ve been working on a computer game for awhile now using this program: http://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/, and I’ve just wrapped up the demo for it: http://www.h3adlin3.com/games/Cave_Punk_Demo.zip. Check it out and let me know what you think. I’ve gone into more detail in the AGS forums here: http://www.bigbluecup.com/yabb/index.php?topic=39346.0, there’s a write up, some screen shots, and some character animations. I’m having fun making this, although it is a lot of work. The AGS program is great, but it can’t write code for you, and it can’t draw for you, and it can’t write a story for you. So, yeah. As long as I keep at it, I should have the full game done by Dec 2010. (Fingers crossed!)
The game uses a classic Siera style interface: Dropdown menu when you mouse towards the top of the screen, right click cycles through the available mouse options. It is an adventure game, so talk to everyone, pick up anything that’s not nailed down, try all combinations of objects in your inventory, look at everything, and use the spy ‘idea icon’ on everything, and one.
From the great Socialist Republic of Amerika comes this stunning portrait of our beloved leader: President Obama. With the persuasive message for all those political nay sayers: “CHANGE! OR ELSE!”
It’s Rollback Hammer time!
I created two button designs that parody Walmart’s “It’s Rollback time.” campaign buttons that many associates have to wear in the stores.
First “It’s Hammer time.”:
Then “It’s Payback time.” (Thanks Corey)
And here’s the shops:
These guys: http://stopthemega-dump.org/ have been going on and on about the horrors of the proposed expansion of the DeKalb county landfill. And now there are these ridiculous red yard signs cropping up all over town saying ‘no mega dump’ which, to me are a greater eye-sore than any dump. (Mainly because the dump is over in a part of the county where I never drive.) And I started to think, what about those of us who find your NIMBY (Not In My Back Yard) hypocrisy annoying, not to mention the color red, and who like landfills? Imagine all of the high-end trash we can get out of Chicago. I don’t know about you, but I could use a new couch. So I broke out the photoshop, and made up this banner:
And I made a totally cool facebook page to promote a pro-dump stance: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Mega-Dump-Yes/119730984731637?ref=ts
As well as a cafepress page where you can buy your own lawn sign: http://www.cafepress.com/megadumpyes
So stand up to these landfill oppressors and support the Mega Dump Yes! campaign!
