Latte all better, drawings and camera case review  
Ok I think I can finally rant about youtube as I keep forgetting. I decided to try out what it's like to have that google plus on an account I don't care about. So I used my Myers Briggs Sorath account. It's nice to be able to comment but that's all really. Took forever to figure out how to upload an icon. And what's worse is it linked that account with Roundularman which has a different email. I think what happens is if you were logged into an account on a browser even if it was years ago it will link that when you log in. Even if you log out you aren't really logged out. That's scary. I don't want Thagirion9 linked with anything. I have never logged out of it on my main computer or on my laptop. I'm also afraid that the moment I do log out or if I'm somehow forced to log out that then I will be forced to have a google plus or I won't be able to log back in. So I fear even in time it will get me. I think this because on Sorath there's no longer an option to unlink accounts like I did on Thagirion9. One day I'll have to whip my cookies and totally log in as new and I fear getting my other accounts linked together. That's so stupid. What if you are at a public computer lab and other people have used youtube? Will you be linked and have access to their accounts with no passwords? I really hate this.

Anyway I made a video. Check this out. I got my camera case finally and I love it!

Oh one more quick rant. The pretty colored borders don't work anymore. Youtube changed something that now it won't work with that coding. I wrote to them but no response yet and I just tried it and it doesn't work. So here's just an ugly screen with nothing around it. I hope the guy will find a new code to get around whatever youtube did.

Well I hadn't heard back from Case Logic. They said they would get back to me in 48 hours after sending off the email. So I called days later and they told me they were sorry but my new case had shipped and would arrive that day UPS. I was thrilled. It did. I'm very happy with the customer service of Case Logic. I think it's wonderful they would just send me a new one without returning the old one so long as I sent them a photo of the damage. Very cool. And the new one works great as you saw in the video. I don't know what I will do with the old one yet. I don't really have any photography friends I could give it to. Perhaps I will sell it. It's too big for Chris. May-be I should just keep it for my GoPro as it has so many accessories and just not use that front pouch. I just don't know yet. I need to keep things small and light for when I travel. I'm sure I'll eventually figure something out.

Well I'm both happy and sad for Latte. Today her cast came off. She's been running and the vet was amazed by her recovery. So health wise she's great. But she's been outcast from the flock. The old hens don't care abut her and ignore her. Her flock well Leafie and Hoboken chase her and attack when they see her. Leafie is very mean to her. And even Hazelnut who's a low ranking bird kind of chased her. I think she might be able to be friends with Amaretto and Melon who I think are the bottom birds but they all travel as a flock so Leafie and Hoboken won't allow that. She's always alone. I don't like that. The isolated bird is what predators go for. She lost her friends. I don't like this. And tonight I need to teach her to sleep in the coop. I don't know what to do about this yet.

After that we went to check on Mike's house. He is out of town in Michigan. His uncle takes care of the birds but I think those two got out on him. I got to see Henrietta and the pigeons. I can see how they got out. Henrietta is separate from the other hens. I think she beat them up so she's in with the pigeons. And she's still loud and obnoxious as ever. She got in the submissive pose when she saw me. I'm glad she still recognizes me.

Ok I'm very happy I drew again yesterday for the first time. I always worry that I will forget how after going a long time without doing it. But I still got it pretty much. I've been thinking a lot about my Lead and Brimstone band alternate story and am very inspired to draw stuff for that. So I made the two I really had on my mind.

So here is Davon with his BC Rich Beast. That is the hardest guitar to draw. It's nuts. I love how he looks but am concerned about the crappy sparse background. Still maybe it will be bettered colored because then it will have lights shining in all directions behind him and on him.

I love how this turned out George the roadie. His job is to build the stages for the concerts, set up the equipment and tune all the guitars. Then he works security once the show starts. He likes that he rarely has to interact with people other than his team mates. The only thing wrong with this is his right foot. I'm having a hard time with that perspective. It needs to be coming down as he's stepping with it and I want to show the bottom of his boot and I still have to draw the spur on that. But it's giving me a fit. If anyone wants to red line his foot and can do it better please. I could use the help. It's an army boot if you're wondering.

So that's about it for now.

If you are on a public computer and need to check your Google stuff, you have to make sure to uncheck the box that tells the computer to remember you. I was kept off a public computer that way because some idiot forgot to uncheck that box. It put his username in that field, and I couldn't find the right button to get rid of his name so I could log in.

Poor Latte. I hope the flock accepts her soon.

Man, George is strong. Even the small amps are heavy, and he's carrying it on his shoulder.

Gosh that's so annoying. I'd like to know how to unlink accounts. It's really bad because then you can access other people's accounts this way without a password.

Yeah I hope they'll let her back in the flock. How could they forget her so quickly?

Yes I have given a lot of thought to George's strength. I had some neat conversations on DA in this two journals.


Check out the video of the Big Show flipping the jeep. At the end they do a replay with two camera angles. He's only slightly taller than George and same built. He's actually an inspiration for him. And here's one where I was thinking how strong he'd be in hybrid stage with his bug strength.

You Tube sounds like it is getting more and ore Big Brotherish all the time - as is FB. Do.Not.Like! You have turned me right off trying to log in now. Linking email accounts? That's just not on. And not really being logged out? Another bad thing.

Two things I wonder about Latte. Will 'fight' her way back up the social ladder as she gets stronger or will she will become a special pet for you?

I'm glad you solved the pigeon mystery. It seems they are being looked after okay. They could have put Henrietta in with the pigeons because she was bashing everyone up or she may have been being bashed as the new comer.

Good on Case Logic. A good company.

And good drawings. I think there will turn out excellently.

Yes. In some ways they are worse than FB because you're not forced to have a FB but you're forced to have a google plus.

Well I'm trying something new. I will put her on the patio with Amaretto and Melon which are the nicest hens. I'm hoping to break up the flock this way so she'll have a small flock at least. I wouldn't mind if she were my pet though. Would be nice to have a friendly quiet house hen.

Yeah I don't know. But Henrietta's always been a dominant bird. I can imagine she'd take over right away.

I like the new case and they were so helpful.

Thanks. Yeah I think these will be so nice once colored.

I cant watch the video on this netbook, but at least everything else is cool. Nice guitar I like the unique ones. I always draw the same meh ones. Davon is the rival I read about in your story? I really like the George one. What is the submissive pose chickens do? I'm glad she still recognizes mama. What are you going to do with the escaped birds? Poor Latte. I hope things will go her way soon. She is so cute.

That's ok. I didn't think you'd be interested in that video anyway. I just wanted you to see my art as not many read my LJ and those that do get these little rewards and exclusive art.

It's a real guitar they used to make. I saw one once in a store and fell in love with it. I don't even play guitar but I wanted it. Gosh are they hard to draw. The normal round ones are easy compared to that though they are hard too. Yes Davon is rival to Thanatos. Davon is CEO of Flare Enterprise. Though in this version he's the guitarist of the band.
I'm glad you like George's one. He's working hard and though it doesn't look like it he's enjoying himself.

The submissive pose is when a chicken squats down, partially opens her wings, and puts her head and tail down. Here's a pic
It means they literally bow to the dominance of another hen or to you and says, "Please don't hurt me." It's a sign of respect...or fear. If it is done to a rooster he will mount her. All my adult hens do this to me when I walk by especially early in the morning. I pet them hard on the back when they do this.

I will give the escaped birds back to Mike once he returns. It's already too much work for me again. An extra cage is too much right now.
badcowboy: wtfbadcowboy on August 26th, 2014 12:25 pm (UTC)
Aww the chickie! Is the rooster mounting a mating or just dominance? Taylor used to pounce on Clawed every morning when I'd wake up. Of course the dope in my life would say the cat is gay -_- I asked if he knows anything about males showing dominance.

I'll have to scan the ugly guitars I used to draw lol I DID make a flying V once and it came out pretty cool.

How many birds escaped total? Could more still get out?
Desthagirion on August 26th, 2014 01:43 pm (UTC)
Roosters are horny things. When they mount a female they are going for it. But yes it is also to show dominance.

Flying V's are easy to draw at least. I should have someone in the band use one to make it easier on myself but I don't.

Only two pigeons. They could still escape. I hope Mike will return soon.
