Hope the neighbors are happy… NOT

Posted in Uncategorized on February 10, 2013 by vk08

I’ve been reading about how all over the state neighbors are helping neighbors dig out from this historic blizzard, Nemo.  We got somewhere between 39 and 46 inches of snow in a 24 hour period, and of course the whole area was snowed in , not a really disastrous situation, the power only went out for about an hour and a half, we have heat, however, our snowblower was… well, non functional.

Ok fine, over the years I have allowed others to use my snowblower, or have just done their driveways myself, so I thought, apparently wrongly, that it may have worked in reverse when everyone realized we were shoveling 39 inches of snow by hand..  Instead they were taking bets on our ability to shovel, and pointing and laughing.

Is this what neighborhoods have come to?  Neighbors betting on the misfortune of others?

Well come summertime and when people ask to use my John Deere… take a wild guess what my answer is going to be this year…


I fart in thee general direction.

The Spy Game

Posted in Uncategorized on April 17, 2010 by vk08

Who's Watching the Watchers?

Have you ever wondered why it is that people seem to have the need to follow youa nd watch every move you make?  I have been wondering that myself of recent days and I think I may have a reason for it.. And it isn’t pretty.

It all goes to a sense of paranoia and insecurity, if you fear the worst, then everything that may be said, however inccoulous, is suspect.  You hire people (or ask them) to go and spy for you, reporting things back, all because inside you are so insecure you need to know what is being said at all times and for no real solid reason.

Say for example I got a bad post on here, now I moderate all posts and comments so it’s not as big an issue, but if I didn’t and someone posted that I was an “insane crackpot” I would necessarily care that they said it, I’d just delete it and move on, freedom of speech and all, plus, I really wouldn’t care that on some other site the discussion may pop up, unless one of two things had been going on – threatening or legal slander.  Then I may be concerned, but random complaining or venting, who cares really, unless you are so tied up in making sure you are informed of every mention of your name, that you can’t escape the thought you are a God among your followers.

It’s so Junior High School that it’s almost funny in a sad and pathetic sort of way.

Disclaimer: This post is not aimed at anyone in particular, it’s just a disturbing trend I’m seeing in a lot of places recently online.

A little fun: Cylon Raider Prototype

Posted in 3D, CGI, Uncategorized on March 8, 2010 by vk08

It’s not often that I get someone that’s worked on my favorite show telling me that they like the design I did, a lot of my concepts are way out there in left field anyhow, so when it happens I tend to get a little blushy.

Without further ado, here’s the first look at the Cylon Raider Prototype I’ve been working on, magnificently remodeled (I’m redoing the textures now) by Al Rivard.

Even the Cylons had to start somewhere...

Total Exhaustion

Posted in Uncategorized on February 18, 2010 by vk08

we all feel like this from time to time

There are those days.

We all have them and well when they get to being like weeks and months, then you start to worry that y ou’re doing something dreadfully wrong.  Problem is, even just doing the day to day stuff that is reqired of you, you can end up feeling, well exhausted and crappy.

SO what to do about this?  There really is nothing that you can do about it unless you decide suddenly that you don’t need to ever do anything again, and well that’s just insanity talking (or is it, I mean ifyou had the money to hire people…… ) But in reality, moreso than 20 years ago, life is hectic, and it is hard and it is not the same type of morals and determination we had in generations past.

Nowadays it’s all about the glitz.  Flashy is better (to the masses), if it’s not flashy it gets overlooked.  It could be the best writing ever written, but if it doesn’t have half naked people and lots of blinking pictures around it, it gets glanced over.

It’s time we remembered the simple things, and reminded ourselves to look past the glitz.

Especially in November…….

Twisted Justice?

Posted in Uncategorized on January 7, 2010 by vk08

Justice is not blind, although it should be.

They have always said justice is blind, and doesn’t look at anything except the law.

They lied.

Something we are finding out is that in a family court hearing, nothing is sacred, nothing is against the law and certainly the motives of the “state” are not even taken into consideration.  The claim to be working for the “welfare of the children” but in fact, they cause more damage to the family unit than a major death could.  Dragging people and children through hoops upon hoops, through threats and coercion and through slander and lies that one cannot ever recover from.

Of course when evidence surfaces that the maltreatment is really at the hands of the ones we trust our children to?  CPS and the Schools say “well it’s only the word of a child, you can’t believe them”  but you can believe them when it means putting a family through hell?  The double standard is so out there it’s not even funny.

The next time someone jokes about calling these people, tell them it’s no joke, you better really need ot have the power that is CPS involved or else it could end up on you as well.
