solarbird: (shego-rule?-you?)

So I bought a Colonial Raptor sticker that I found for sale online, but it wasn’t the adhere-inside kind, it was the adhere-outside kind, and not vinyl, so I don’t trust it in weather. But I found a place that will make inside-window static-clings for you for like $5 from your own art, so I converted it for that. And also changed the text layout. Anyway, it looks like this now:

I’m not sure that the slightly-offset circles thing reads as entirely intentional but I like it, it adds a hint of extra depth for me. The white parts will be transparent, so I hope the design actually shows up well. If not, eh, it wasn’t exactly a lot of money anyway.

I’ve never spent this much attention on a vehicle before, what is wrong with me? \☉~⚆ /

solarbird: (fascist sons o bitches)

A couple of days ago, John Scalzi signed a 13-book deal worth 3.4 million dollars. That’s pretty good for somebody that the Sad Puppies like to claim nobody really wants to read, and pretty good for someone the puppies like to say writes only the sorts of things that nobody wants to read. Basically, they’ve been accusing “SJW” writers of driving readers out of fandom, and he’s a really poorly-chosen poster boy.

So that’s pretty funny, but not funny enough yet, because you know white supremacist and oberpuppyführer Vox Day would come up with some way to spin this, right? Of course he would. The thing is, there’s no way to do it which is not unintentionally hilarious, and Vox delivers. Seriously, this is some always-at-war-with-Eurasia spinning, wherein the new line is that Real Men Self-Publish, and that’s what’s Real Writing now, not this multi-million-dollar major-publishing-house bullshit. Self-pub is the only true pub.

NO, REALLY, THAT’S THE NEW PARTY LINE. That’s a We Hunted the Mammoth link, because I’m not in the mood to link to Vox under the best of circumstances, which I suppose really, these are. But there are extensive quotes at the link. Go look, it’s a riot.
 


Confused? Lots more on the Hugo Awards/Sad Puppies mess here.

We had to put stair rails up at murksouth, for code compliance reasons. That meant doing some brickwork, too. I didn't do any of this myself, but I liked how they came out.
