“Alien House”

I was watching a video about the Kelly-Hopkinsville aliens, and their possible return some decades later.  There were photographs of footprints in the second part, and it struck me–why are so many of these alien visitors showing up naked?

Granted, they may have evolved beyond things like modesty, but there’s always protection against the elements and predators.  And carrying tools.  Clothes can be quite useful, so why not use them?

Then it struck me–maybe these visitations, abductions, home attacks, etc, over the years aren’t alien scientists studying us.

Maybe these are initiation rites to some alien fraternity.  “Okay, before we can let you into Delta Quadrant House, you have to go down and pretend like you’re attacking a farmhouse.  And you have to do this…while completely naked!”

That sounds like a great idea for a movie.  Call it “Alien House,” the story of how the wacky Delta Quadrant House got into all kinds of mischief.  The antagonist could be Dean Wormhole, who’s always trying to get them thrown out after their latest Grey party.

I tell you, it’s worth millions.

September 2019

Well, it’s end of another month.  Got a couple of projects going, both of which I am tired of working on already, but at least one of which should post to YouTube next month.

Here’s a still from one of them.

Aside from that, nothing much else going on.  Starting Monday, we’re supposed to wear uniforms at work.  Oh Joy.

I miss having a cat, but at the moment I can’t afford one.

See you next month and thanks for stopping by.

August 2019

Well, it’s that time.  Still working on the latest project, which is taking more and more time while I’m really starting to doubt if it’s any good.

In other words, most things just seem to be deteriorating.  Bright spots tend to be things like, “Well, I thought my bill would be higher.”

The film group grows more and more disappointing.  On the other hand, the other group is still pretty fun.

See you soon, next month for sure.

RAID-iate

Well, the RAID box I had for seven years finally gave up the ghost.  I had a second box I’d bought a while ago, but didn’t have any drives for it.

So, when the first one said goodbye, I pulled the drives from that and put them in the new box.  Two big issues:  the drives were NOT the recommended kind, and the unit might have been damaged when, a year or so ago, my air-conditioning unit leaked water into the closet.  Anything cardboard ended up being soaked into rottenness.

But the unit powered up, it saw the drives, and I recreated the array.  Tried to copy stuff to it, and it started alarming…so I guess I’ll wait until I can afford those drives.  In the meantime, I have an 8T external which I’ll use.

Work on the new project is going pretty well, but every step forward requires a few side steps, so it’ll show up eventually.

Thanks for visiting!

Mid-July 2019 Post

Well!  How is everyone today.  There’ve been some new developments in the world of projects and other works.  I did start another painting, but it’s not going quickly.  Here’s a WIP, colors are way off but, you know, WIP.  As you can see, it’s the same old stuff.

(Remember when I did the PaintBlogs?  I should really try another one of those, but I just don’t pick up the brush that often.)

The animation project mentioned last month is still proceeding, with more sequences done and artwork created.  There’s a Vegas project going that already has the opening pretty well mapped-out, but that’s still evolving (sigh).

I heard of a fun contest which I’m going to enter.  I’d show you the latest stage, but as it’s a contest I’m not sure I can.  No hope of winning, but it’s fun to work on.

Also, the air-conditioning has been fixed, so I shouldn’t have to suffer either temperature-wise or financially.  Always a plus!

So, keeping busy and trying to keep comfortable.  And I won’t bother you with the health worries.  Thanks for stopping by, and I may see you later this month.
