Thank you for the refresher - totally forgot that...
Dianna Silver 27th Aug 2021, 6:03 AM edit delete reply

You're welcome. ^.^
But you're going to get an indignant "chreep" from Yugasa for calling her a chicken. She's a dignified phoenix; she's got more class than some barnyard dawnscreecher. *Laughs*

For the record, that's just a myth. Much like the idea that wolves howl at the moon, roosters do *not* crow at the break of dawn.

They get their reputation from being a diurnal noisemaker. Basically, they crow from dawn to dusk. It's just, *one* of those wakes the farmer and is thus memorable. The rest are just... will that damned bird ever shut up?

(The answer is "Absolutely. Roosters don't live that long, especially on a farm that's really probably only big enough for one adult rooster." My experience comes from living on a farm back in the day with free-range chickens. None of the roosters lived long enough to find out if they ever mellowed with age.)

It's true that a rooster crows randomly all day long. It's kind of living near train tracks; after a while you don't really notice the trains.

Having been woken consistently at an hour I didn't really want to be woken at by a rooster's crowing while billeted in a small village in Germany, to the point that several of us were very seriously contemplating a pre-dawn excursion and later on, a satisfying chicken dinner, I'll have to respectfully disagree.

Having lived on a farm with roosters and later by train tracks, I feel between megados and Oldarmourer, you basically seem to have an understanding of the whole rooster thing.

They crow all day long, and one quickly learns to not really pay attention to it, so long as it sounds more or less normal.

However, the rooster's crow is of a very distinctly different quality, such that one really needs to be utterly exhausted to be able to sleep through a rooster's crow.

The train noises, on the other hand, become soothing after a while. Even the train whistle eventually becomes something one can sleep through, although my high school classmates who lived right at a railroad crossing related that it took several years to get to that point.

Maybe it's possible to get used to the rooster crowing in the morning, but I didn't after about 6 years of it, and I've known a number of old farmers who related that they hadn't after 50-60 years.

We have chickens here, and a rooster. My experience seems to differ. I really don't notice him, unless he sneaks up behind me and let's loose. Then I notice it. :D
Dianna Silver 30th Aug 2021, 8:15 AM edit delete reply

*Sigh* Yes, they crow all day long. I've been around chickens before. Way to ruin a joke with facts. :P

Well, for what it's worth, Yugasa's right about roosters not having class. They're certainly barnyard fowls, and all of the chickens I've gotten to know were also barnyard fouls.

I mean, I've cleaned a chicken. It took it about 5 seconds to get dirty again, to such an extent that the next chicken I managed to grab to subject to the cleaning process was the first one, and it was so dirty I couldn't distinguish it from the others until I had a hold of it and got to get a good look at its features. (Yeah, all chickens look alike, just like all white people look alike. Once you get to know them, you start being able to distinguish them. But a chicken in motion can be difficult to distinguish from their siblings.)

"That's some high-calibre cannons" and some high calibre guest artwork too..
Hope everything's alright on the main Artist front, these filler pieces, as nice as they are, always make me a little uneasy.
Oldarmourer 26th Aug 2021, 10:16 AM edit delete reply
and the lack of an imediate reassurance makes me even more uneasy....
Hope all's well and will get better
megados 26th Aug 2021, 10:20 AM edit delete reply

I'm sure if/when there's something to say, they'll say it. Well wishes are always welcome! :)
Oldarmourer 26th Aug 2021, 1:55 PM edit delete reply
I'm sure we'll get news when it's available to give us
That doesn't make me feel any uneasier though
It's been that kind of week, I just hope it isn't rubbing off on anyone else
robnot 27th Aug 2021, 9:38 AM edit delete reply
as is well (enough ) with them..
just minor writers block..
and a little distraction.
Oldarmourer 27th Aug 2021, 3:09 PM edit delete reply
That makes me feel better...
Not as good as Feelie's 'loose cannons' but better ;)

There's my cute little fox bot scavenger!!!!

I noticed that the lady picked up an interesting eye tattoo around her right eye. I don't remember that from the naughty teacher/student scene.
Just_IDD 29th Aug 2021, 6:57 AM edit delete reply
Oh and thank-you Dianna!

Hope you feel better soon Cent!

(This way I'm not telling you to get better which for me is likely to cause annoying angst.)

Might be a holo-sight/target designating monocle ?
Dianna Silver 30th Aug 2021, 8:17 AM edit delete reply

*laughs* She's had that all along. It's kinda part of her being Maddy. I'm sure Tokyo Rose will say more if she's so inclined. It's a tattoo, not a monocle or anything like that.
Tokyo Rose 30th Aug 2021, 7:13 PM edit delete reply


Years ago, I played in a Vampire: the Masquerade LARP. Maddy was my character, and she had a tattoo of Luna's sigil around her eye, partly because I was experimenting a lot with theatrical makeup to try out different effects. It became part of the character's look.

Who played Jasper Stone? Anyone we know? Did you have a thrall named "Kokishin"?
Tokyo Rose 30th Aug 2021, 8:51 PM edit delete reply

Di actually played Jasper, but not in the LARP.
Gilrandir 30th Aug 2021, 10:44 PM edit delete reply
Cool. I am in favor of RP, be it LA or otherwise.
Gilrandir 30th Aug 2021, 10:47 PM edit delete reply
This inspires another oddball question: Do vampire fangs and an unnatural pallor qualify as a 'sufficiently distinctive appearance' for a New Troy android? Any Gothbots out there bringing a spot of colorless local color to New Troy's nightclub scene?
Centcomm 31st Aug 2021, 5:26 PM edit delete reply

that would be a yes.. but they would also crank it up to 11 maybe 12
