I’m afraid the spoiler levels on this one are of the absolute no no magnitude, so I’m afraid I can’t. Ask me again after the next two hundred pages.

I got tagged! By sarahsirinasplendora

1. What’s your favorite animal (or at least one of them if there are multiple)?

Every single animal ever to exist? I don’t knooooooooow! There’s only one species that I know of that creeps me out (Surinam toad), but even that I think is still awesome, so picking favourites is nearly impossible. But uuuuumh, I really like monkeys (big surprise there), emperor tamarins being visually one of my favourites, honeybees aaaaand Boulengerula taitana (a worm looking amphibian that feeds its young by letting them eat the mother’s skin. I love nature). 

2. Favorite genre of music?

And this is the point where my inability to name music genres gets revealed to the world. Ahem… I like several kinds of music, depending on my mood and what I need to set a mood for the particular moment, although I do tend to like melodic metal (Nightwish and Sonata Arctica as examples of bands in case I totally misnamed the genre). And whatever E Nomine is. For reference, this is what my youtube playlist sounds like: (ignore the first video, it’s there just to give me time to turn on shuffle without sacrificing any of the songs to the most-listened-to first place) Also warning: might include inside jokes.

3. Favorite season?

Spring/summer. The point where it’s warm and has long periods of sunlight.

4. Dream car/vehicle/something that transports you from place to place?

I have absolutely no clue. So far my feet + public transportation has been enough.

5. If you had $10,000 right now, what would you do with it?

Check how fast I could type skullsunlimited.com. Then set the rest aside for getting-a-cat-in-the-future -fund, stock up on Copic markers and Pentel Brush Pen ink cartridges, run around in a big bookstore and maybe paying some of my student loan debts with whatever’s left.

6. Dogs, cats, or other?

Yes. In what way, though? If you mean for a pet, then cat. 

7. Do you prefer the hustle and bustle of the big city, or solitude of the rural country?

Considering that I grew up under a rock and still consider my current home town (population around 100 000) a big city… Yeah. I need forests and woodland paths. Though living two kilometers away from practically everything I need (the town center) is a nice thing. As opposed to the 20 kilometers of the place I grew up in.

8. Favorite type of food?

Freshly smoked salmon. Or chicken with rice.

9. Favorite animated movie?

AUGH! You really know how to find the hardest questions. (Does Who Framed Roger Rabbit count? It’s partly animated) Uuuuuuuummmmh… (cheats from her very limited dvd collection) I only collect stuff I like, and I seem to have Spirited Away, both Kung Fu Panda movies (visually my favourite, specially the second one), Road to El DoradoHow To Train Your DragonPirates (forgot the subtitle, but that Aardman movie. I like stop motion), how come I don’t have any Pixar movies in there? No, wait! There’s the Incredibles. I’m positive that I’m forgetting some amazing animated movie, but I can’t think of anything unless I see it.

10. Books or movies?

Yes.

11. Are you an introvert or an extrovert?

Umh, I think I’m closer to introvert than an extrovert, although I don’t mind having company either, depending on the company.

Why is it that whenever I really feel like drawing Wurr stuff, it’s always stuff that’s like hundred pages into spoiler territory so I can’t show it online. So I’m left wondering whether to draw it at all since I can’t show it off, or just draw it to hide it away for undeterminate amount of time, possibly years.

*angrily draws cute things* >8(

Oooooo-kaaaaaay, seems like that link post exploded on my blog’s layout. Would anyone know how to fix it? I absolutely suck at coding and customizing layouts (which is why I’ve never changed mine since I first made this blog).

EDIT: Thanks, mewitti ! Seems like your tip fixed the problem.

What’s all the stuff in his nose?

It’s called nasal concha. During life it’s covered in soft tissue that has functions in heating, filtering and humidifying inhaled air and stuff. I think smell receptors might be located around them too?

I did some digging around in Wikipedia but my limited English skills have sometimes troubles with fancy scientific language.

Anyway, very delicate bone that’s way too easy to break.

Yaaaaay, kitty got fixed! Narmer is one of my favourite skulls, so it’s great to see it in one piece again. Or, well, two pieces, cranium and jaw, but you know.
This has been completely random pair of posts, move along.

Thoughts on Kulindadromeus’ integrument

So Kulindadromeus‘ paper is out, and so is the description of it’s feather and “scale” types. As Matt Martyniuk pointed out long before, bird “scales” are actually stunted feathers, and since…

I’m a demon, and you want to summon me. What six components are required for the ritual?

Narmer, my poor kitty bone fell off the table some time ago, getting its jaw split and a fang chipped. Being a scatter brained air head I keep forgetting to buy glue to put it back together, so I’m putting this here to remind myself.

A friend of mine lives on the other side of the town, and I sometimes birdsit her pet finches when she’s out of town.

I think it was last month that I last time checked her burds. It was a weekend, so I went to see them twice.

On both days, as I left to return home, a man walked past me at the exact same spot. He wore neat, grey shirt, had neat, short beard, and both times were talking on his cellphone as he passed me. I didn’t stop to listen, but I’m pretty sure that on the first day he was speaking French, and the next he spoke German.

It was a funny coincidence, I don’t have a schedule, and I was on the move on different times of day, but still saw the guy at the same spot. A funny coincidence.

I was birdsitting again today. I saw the same guy, again gray shirt, same glasses, same beard, almost at the same spot as last time I passed him, again speaking to his cellphone, this time in English.

… What just happened?

I am a mean person and use other people’s characters in my style/technique experiments.

papermonkeyism's Hafmar here.

AAAaaaaAAaaaaaaaAaaaaaaaah!

Look at that face! Love it to bits.

Apparently tumblr is recommending me a blog about Finnish lapphunds while I’m away on a trip with one. I don’t think I’ve even mentioned the breed before.

Coincidence?

Tumblr, how?

Aaaaaaaand I’m back from being kidnapped bu my old comic school buddies. The road trip was awesome again (anything is awesome with these people), and I’m now eating the last bits of the food I had on the trip and settling back to living in a house that doesn’t move. 

Thanks for the amazing trip guys!

I now have quite a bit of catching up to do (there’s 47 pages worth of tumblr dashboard to browse through. whooo boy.)

In the mean time, here, have a picture of the hairy man who came along on our adventure.

I am just about to leave on an epic adventure!

A bunch of my old Liminka school of arts comic buddies are going to kidnap me on to our annual week long road trip, outside the reach of interwebs (I will take my tablet with me, but our caravan doesn’t have open wifi, so I’m not too hopeful. Or even all that interested. With these people, being online is the last thing in my mind).

Will be back sometime next thursday, I think. 

Much fun will be had.

See ya peeps in a week!
