I meant that I didn't want to annoy you folks.
About me... Well, I don't drink cocktails (or any alcohol) and I'm not particularly looking for this kind of evening
, if that's what you're implying. I like drawn people of all kinds; characters from comic strips, cartoons, or Norman Rockwell illustrations. I think the best animation ever put to film is seen during the credits (opening and closing) of the movie A Series of Unfortunate Events
. I'm also strangely fascinated by the animation from the Abilify
commercials -- how do they get the mouths to move so perfectly in sync with the voice acting? Why can't other cartoons do that?
I'm happily married (10 years in October, no kids). I have a little talent at making websites, and am trying to get into that as a career. In the meantime, I work crappy day jobs at grocery stores, gas stations, and the like.
I've always liked political forums and the principles by which politics works. I read US history books in my spare time, and think of The American Way (tm) as a historic innovation worth reverence (I guess that makes me Republican), but my favorite online hangout is in the midst of falling apart under the weight of systematic brain drain (ie, stupid people are praised and smart people condemned). I've always liked Real Life (I think of it as the comic I would make if I had time & talent), so I thought I might find a reasonable replacement here.
Apparently my "trouble posting" was due to a 2-week delay between clicking Submit and Administrator approval. Is that normal? Just for newbies, to ensure they're not spammers? Apparently the latter, since this post appeared instantly. Okay, then.[/edit]
