I shamelessly ripped off this one from artist Tim Bradstreet. It originally appeared in Vampire: The Masquerade. You can see the whole picture in this gallery.

Should I feel bad about myself since I knew who did it and where it came from before reading your post? :oops:

Naw. Re: my post in the Political Discussion about age specific media. Bradstreet makes awsome comic covers. He should start doing interior pages.

I don't know if Tim has ever done an entire comic book, but he did get several full page illustrations in Masquerade 2nd edition. For some reason, he didn't return for the 3rd edition, but according to his website, he is once again talking with former employer White Wolf about a new project.

Well, as long as we are nitpicking, Masquerade is an RPG. I believe Jyhad was the cardgame.

You are correct sir.

Jyhad wasn't that bad of a CCG either...wish it would get a renessance so I could sell off all the card that I have...that and Rage. :?

Andrewgd has finally revealed himself as the robot clone that he is. Dammit, you get one robot clone in, and pretty soon the whole neighborhood goes to crap.

I love the new avatar. I'm glad you finally revealed your robot self, i've had suspicions for some time now and didn't feel it was appropriate to ask. I'm pretty sure you aren't the only one here and i'm confident that the bravery you've shown will help other robots find the courage to follow in your footsteps.

Yes, I expect the PC terminology would be "Artificial American". Well, if times have changed that much, I guess I can set aside my prejudices and tolerate the new you. Just don't try any of that "running amok and destroying your creators" business.

:D

On a related note: Have you considered seeing a dermatologist about that skin condition? I mean, when your face is splitting down the middle and sloughing off of your endoskeleton...

Yes, it is that time again. Time for a new avatar. :)

I decided to stick with the anime theme, mainly because I have a ton of them ready for use from my animeGlitch.com site. This one is from FLCL (Furi Kuri), which I think is airing now on Cartoon Network, one of my favorite animes. The character's name is Mamimi in case you were wondering ;)

LOL. I got it off The Onion. They had a story about Rumsfeld running a tournament to the death on Fang Island. At least, I think that's what it was. (I can't find it on the site anymore).

I don't know why, but ever since this has been your new avatar CG, I always imagined the blonde one was you (logistcally I had my doubts, but it seemed to fit). So today I was on a mission to find out! I was wrong, but I can't feel too badly, given that I've never seen Buffy.

Wow, some of the mystery of the forum seems to have faded away with this dicovery ...

Poor ole Beaker!

Post by So-Called Loon » May 15th 2004, 7:35 pm

Somewhat on this topic, I originally had a nasty time trying to locate good pictures of the old muppets, period, let alone Beaker.

If anybody knows someplace to get pictures of the classic Muppets (meaning those from the Muppet Show or those who've been on Sesame street since the ice age) i'd really like to know!

The Muppet Show was a CLASS act! :D
