Loads of stuff today  
silvolf Made this cute drawing for me of Cope. I got this big one.

And my new icon for LJ. I love the colors and the 80's look to it. It's techie and 80's all at the same time.

Today's been a very good day. Chris got a chance to do a much needed garbage run. Then he went to Tire Kingdom and had a sensor light in his car fixed up. We at breakfast at Flaco's and since we didn't get any calls it was technically a day off. I got some stuff done around the house and more tilling in the garden. Lots of pumpkins have come up. I need to buy bug spray and spray them. I need to do everything I can to help them survive and make fruits. I also need to buy fungecide.

I got two cool things in the mail today. I finally got my second order of Chicken leg bands. They take forever to ship but they are very nice. I'll put the pics behind the cut.

So I got in the leg bands for Zucca and Raptor.

Here's a close up of Zucca's leg. These are aluminum and silver. But I painted them with nail polish because this will help Chris ID the birds from a distance. They are going to be color coded. You can see her name there. They also have the phone number in case they get lose and someone finds them they can be returned. I don't see that happening unless the fence fell over. Only Henrietta is a problem when it comes to that and she was the first to get a leg band.

Here is Zucca all stylish in the latest in Hen jewelry. Hehe. Actually she hated it and kept pecking it at first. But she'll get used to it.

Here is Raptor checking out her new bracellet. Nice. She got used to it fast unlike Zucca.

There's something on my leg...Mmmm food. Chomp chomp.
Hers is orange.

And I haven't bought myself a comic book in a long time but when I saw this was up on Ebay I had to have it.

A Stunt Dawg comic book. I haven't read it yet but I looked at all the art. It's on that old newspaper style paper which sucks. The art is ok, but I didn't get it for the art or the writing. I'm probably the biggest Stunt Dawg fan out there and anything to do with them is extremely rare. I think I own everything that was officially released including the British VHS of two eps. I really should draw more art from the show since I can draw the characters well and no one knows about this show as it's so rare. When I did an image serch they are all crappy screen caps from one ep that's been circulating around and is incomplete. I've been trying to track down this comic for a long time. I need to scan some of the drawings and may-be redo them in Illustrator because Airball looks so ugly he's hilarious in this.

I'm also going to make a video for youtube very soon. I tested my camera case for under water and it works great. I filmed with my regular camera and the camera that was in the case at the same time. So I want to do a picutre in picture (PIP) or split screen to show both videos at the same time. I've never done that effect and am looking forward to doing it and having something interesting to look at. It will be fun to learn a new technique with Sony.

Speaking of Sony, I still really want the new Sony pack bundle that comes with the new Sony Vegas Movie Studio Platinum Pro 10. It also comes with DVD Architect and Acid Music Stuido and a few other program. I mostly want Movie Story and the music software. So Chris took me to Office Depot today to see if they still had it. They do. Gosh I really want it and I have enough to buy it, but I should keep saving for that camera. Temptations. While we were there he bought me these cool colored ball point pens. I love colored pens that aren't the typical black or blue. I hate that ugly blue color. Given a choice I'll pick the black. But these had red, green, pink, orange, turquise and purple. The green was a bit dark and kind of ugly though. I like neon green not forest green.

Oh I also learned a little bit of the X-men Evolution song. Got frustrated because I can't hear the bass but figured out the beginning of the original X-men theme. So progress on my bass makes me happy.

And though I'm not supposed to Chris bought me a Starbucks. There's one by the Office Depot and I couldn't resist that temptation. It's not a drinking month but I had some anyway. Yum.

So yes it's been a very good and exciting day.

Like the icon.

Love the chicken pictures. Zucca looks like she's headbanging in that one picture.

Thanks. He's so cute and colorful.

Yeah, she moves her head so fast the camera couldn't focus.

Good idea about color-coding the bracelets for quick and easy ID. Love the pix and your narrative . . . "There's something on my leg...Mmmm food. Chomp chomp."

I like your new user pic. That was a nice gift from your friend.

Yeah Chris can't tell them apart. The Easter Eggers are the hardest to distinguish. I'm used to them though, but it's good so other people know which is which. Hee hee, yeah that's how birds are. It was forgotten when she saw the food.

Yeah I'm really happy with it to. Love Cope.

I'm so glad you like the icon!

I remember putting rings on my canaries, some of them hated them while others didn't care lol! Congrats on getting the comics! I have all the Space Ghost Coast to Coast comics, there are 10 of them and I got them all on eBay.
It's always hard when you're saving for something and you find other things you want.

I wish you luck with the song!
Des: Cope 80's Groovethagirion on August 26th, 2011 02:16 pm (UTC)
Yeah he's so cute and silly.

Yeah some birds don't care and others it bugs. Some of my budgies I recently banded and they were chewing on them a long time but finally gave up.
When you got your cel it reminded me and I went to look for Stunt Dawgs. They didn't have any but I found the comic and was glad because I didn't have it.

How nice of Silvolf to do that for you. It looks awesome!

Those name bands look really good. That was a good idea to put nail polish on them. Isn't it funny how two chooks from the same breed react so differently from each other?

Good luck with that song! I haven't played any guitar for two whole days!
Des: Cope 80's Groovethagirion on August 26th, 2011 02:17 pm (UTC)
Yeah she did a great job.

Yeah they're pretty nice. I like them. I think it depends on the personality of the bird.

The neon squares in the background of that Cope picture are neat.

And congrats on getting that comic!

Thanks, I had a feeling those would make a nice background for him.

Yeah it's a neat find.

Ooh! I never knew they made a Stunt Dawgs comic. Is it just the one issue that was made, or did they make more after that?
Desthagirion on August 30th, 2011 03:59 pm (UTC)
Yeah it was the only one unfortunately.
