I'm a bitey budgie today  
So Chris and I are taking care of each other. He won't be working tomorrow either. I worked a bit more on my comic inking and finished the first frame. Now to ink George in the second frame and then Leeanix and finally the more fun coloring part of this can start.

I was on playstation.com today looking at my trophies when a survey popped up. Usually those things annoy me and I close them right away. But then I thought I will take it. They interrupted me I will tell them what I think. Remember I usually keep stuff to myself unless you ask me what I think. Here's what I think of their website.

Click for full size.
Yes at the end I hit the word limit and wasn't done telling them what I didn't like about their site. So I condensed it some and also told them their survey was bad for having a word limit and I still did not get to say everything I would have liked. The website does suck and though Xbox's is kind of poorly laid out too it's not as bad as PSN is. It's not user friendly, things are hard to find, they're not where they logically should be and you see how bland and white it is. It really could use with a better layout with nicer colors. Also I think they should give you options of skins for your badges. The consoles are nice but the website has always sucked.

Still having issues with an annoying "fan". We'll see if I don't just remove her from watching me as though I no longer watch her now she's started to talk and so far I have not enjoyed any of our conversations.
EDIT: Well good after I gave her a bite on her last comment she removed me. Fickle INFP. She's probably regretting drawing my characters now. This is why unless it's a very good friend or a commission I don't make art for others. I have it saved in case she takes it down. Well glad that's over. Now if she'd just remove my friends. Well you guys can see to that.

Here is a scene very similar to what inspired me to create demon #9.

This looks very much like the scene from the Zanzibar episode of Wildest Islands. The huge Manta Ray was floating over a reef hill filmed from below the reef. This is very much like that though the one I saw showed even more for an awesome sense of scale. It made such an impression on me that that's when I decided what my 9th demon would be.

Seems I'm on rampage today. After having watched a great documentary series I found a crappy one. I thought Built for the Kill would be good as it showcased the most well known predators. I decided to watch the last episode first since it was about Grizzly Bears. Well it was disappointing. They took footage from other shows and spliced stuff all together. They used filters on some scenes that made it over exposed and you couldn't see anything. Some of the footage looked very old like from the late 80s or early 90s. I even recognized a scene from Wildest Island of a salmon coming out of the falls only the image had been reversed. I wondered if they got permission for these videos? And then the scenes were so badly edited that it wasn't even the same bear or animals from one scene to the next. The main character had long hair in one then short in the other. He comes out in winter from his den but when he gets to the river there is green grass and it's spring. Wow must have been a long walk. Just so many things like this that were so bad. Ok mention one more. Our bear was fighting wolves and the carcass he was defending was all eaten. But then he won the fight and when he went to the carcass it had lots of meat again. This isn't even funny it's insulting to my intelligence. Oh and the narrator sounded like a super hero. I will not be watching any more. That was terrible. I watched a way better one on youtube.

You are a bitey budgie today. I think it comes with being sick.

I love the Manta Ray picture. They are so pretty and graceful.

Hehe yes I'm in the mood for no nonesense today.

That is a gorgeous pic. I'd love to see that in real life.

I agree that you may be a bit more bitey today because you are sick...and Chris is sick.

Your criticisms all sound valid. A word limit does suck. At least you got a lot in of what you wantyed to say. Maybe you could do a second one? And still, it's not the worst game console out there.

Manta rays ARE cool :) I've seen one in the wild and also at Underwater World.

Yes I've been quite bitey today. I have to take care of Chris too. We've been helping each other.

Yeah all the people I have dealt with online I am still logical and level headed like this survey though I gave them bad marks they were valid. The console is fine. It's the website that I was reviewing I do not like.

Yes they are so lovely. I've never seen one wild or captive. Would love to.

You don't get internet for the whole house? That sucks it's by machine. But yeah the website isn't very good they do need to remake it all. But the consoles are more important and those are made right at least.

She ended up annoying two other of my friends also but seems now it's finally taken care of. Chris as always watched from the side lines amused. So I hope that's all the excitement for the year. This year is better so far as online interactions go.

Yes that was very strange and I do wonder if they do have legal problems now. I wonder how such a show could get out?
