Jurassic Park and Fear  
So I'm thinking about when I will turn my Jeep into a Jurassic Vehicle. I'm mentally preparing for even more attention once that happens. Though I'm still conflicted as I don't want to get rid of Fear and all the pretty blue and black I have. In fact today I was looking into leather seats and blue with blue stitching was an option. Sooo tempting. Not only that but they can embroider anything on the seat not just the Jeep logo. OMG must resist the temptation to write something Fear related on the seat in pretty blue thread. The oil change went well yesterday and I was very happy when they told me the headlights were in right. They didn't have to adjust anything. Wow got it right the first time. I'm so glad as I did have some trouble getting them to line up. So now I'm all set for night driving which I still have to try. Anyway back to the JP. I've seen lots of videos and pics of owners and their Jeeps but I decided to look for something I hadn't seen too much and that was the point of view from normal people that see these Jeeps. I've heard from owners that you do have to get used to it as not only do people crowd around you at parking lots and ask you dumb questions like, "Was it really in the movie?" to people speeding up and following you to get a better look or a photo. People changing lanes and directions to catch up. So far my fave video is of this guy on a motorcycle that flips out over a Jeep, turns instead of going straight like he was and almost falls off. But he's so happy.



So my introversion doesn't like this but my big ego sure does. Ah the complexity of being INTJ. If I were ENTJ I'd have no issues whatsoever haha.

I'm happy to have made a make sift character sheet for Scary Fear that's finally up to date. Check it out.

So if you want to get me something for my birthday and don't know what, I would love some gift art of my new beloved Fear. I'll be posting my wish list here soon too.

EDIT: This morning I noticed a link in the subject of this post saying something about ratings. WTF? It took me to the LJ's front page and I wasn't sure why. I went through my settings and found that I have it set to allow notifications if I ever got featured on the front page. I totally forgot about that. I've been on LJ 12 years so that's a first. So I'm in 68th place. Actually forget the 68th. After editing this I rose to 18. Makes no sense but at this rate I may end up in first place. Ha. Here's a screen cap.

But why this post? I have way more interesting posts than this one. One of my travel ones or art ones should have been featured. Well the good thing is Scary Fear is getting more attention now at least. So because of that let me post some other pics of him then.

George's character sheet.

And my art wrap for my hood.

Now this post is a bit more presentable at least for front page material. This reminds me too. I have got to fix the darn CSS I lost on this journal. I had it so nice with my header, sidebar, background, clear panels and custom budgie heads.

If you get your Jeep changed to the Jurassic Park theme, prepare to be mobbed! I hope you leave it black for a while with your cool decal in the front bonnet and cool scary grill. Maybe you can change when your decal wears out. Yes, I'd be resisting the embroidery done, even if cool :)

I like your fact sheet for Scary Fear.

Yeah I think that is what will happen. Everyone will want to see it. Yes I will leave it black with the Fear theme for just under a year. I need to save anyway for the new colors. He looks lovely right now and want to enjoy this way. Hum you're right. In a year might not look so good so it won't be so sad to change it.

Thanks. This should help people out and explain a bit of what he is.

Yes the Jurassic Jeeps sure do get a lot of attention. I am too. I'm kind of excited about when I have this done.

No prob. It had to be done already. I hope to do a proper character sheet for him eventually with the right five poses and then these other details about him. I didn't mention things like his lower jaw has a central longest tooth and a few other things like that. Oh that's great you're done with Colonel's gift. I'm not sure what to do for him. I wish I could just buy him something. That would be easier for me. But he said he'll post a wishlist too. I hope he does and post something I can get him. Ha I can imagine mine would take longer. My characters always seem to be hard even the easy ones. If you have any questions about him just ask. I have also thought about drawing an over head view to how the hairs. The picture of Storm Crow shows that the best I think.

Ok that sounds great. I'm excited about this. I'm so glad you're drawing Fear for me. I've seen your other gift arts that are so nice and always wondered what Fear would look like in your style. That makes sense to do a little at a time.

That's great. Oh yes Joker deserves a nice gift from you. I look forward to that too when you get to it. Ha hope we don't spoil it for him here.

Thanks I redrew the original that was always in flat colors and no shading. This one is on my Leeanix account I think. A very rare obscure Disney character that helped promote our Florida orange juice. I had the cute bank as a kid growing up. It was plastic and I would play with it all the time. They became really rare and in the 90s people were ransoming them. Now he seems to have made a small come back and I JUST found out there's more stuff. I'm going to have to start collecting. Here's one of the original commercials.

I like most orange juice so long as it doesn't have pulp. I don't like slimy things going down my throat that are hard. And it has to be sweet. I like oranges but not lemons. I'm glad you like the commercial. It is old and in bad shape.

Gosh I must resist though I wonder if a blue and black seat would still look ok with the tan and red? After all the original jeeps had green seats and that doesn't exactly match. Plus blue and black are the colors of Jurassic World so I'd kind of have both colors on one car. Sounds like I'm trying to talk myself into the temptation. Yikes. Those videos are great. Normal people freak out in a good way. It is nice to cause so much happiness even if it's annoying. It's funny I once saw a video where a guy was driving and saw a jeep and he started singing the Jurassic Park song really annoyingly. What am I getting myself into haha? Yes an ENTJ like Owen would LOVE all the attention.

Thanks. Since my journal is featured today on LJ I figured I'd put out some of my best art and photos. Maybe I'll get a new good watcher out of it. Who knows.

Yeah, I'm mentally preparing myself for the madness of the new Jeep color next year. Yeah we INTJ's definitely are competitive which it is rare we get along with each other too unless we have tons in common. I'm glad you, me and Roller get along well. That's rare.

Very true. My journal was the best thing to hit the front page since they've started doing this stupidity. Kind of like the year my cucurbit group won an award and was also featured on the front page. I actually hit 9th place one time I looked and then I quit caring. I don't visit the front page as it sucks unless something like this happens.
