5.19.99: Lucas Day

A
long
time ago,
in a galaxy
far, far away.

 

Wookie Hookie

Someone had a dream. In this dream, a lot of people were to run around and fight each other with beams of light. They traveled to different planets, and they used this invisible energy of which has been said, in the words of our favorite black knight, “it flows through the muthafugga, surrounds the muthafugga — it BINDS that azz!”

In this dream, there were a lot of people who would all stand in line. See, there’s this guy named Darth Noj, and his cohort Izbeth, both from the planet Egilla Ekaw. Along with them were an assorted cast of characters, including, but not limited to: Princess Laur, Meli Sa of Nasheen, Darth Ezel, Ambassador Sha-wuun from Xet-Kraana, Senator Jozzi, and his right-hand heroin, Tamba from the paper-world A-Shdon.

They would all stand in line to watch a movie. They heard it was good. In fact, they were pretty excited to see it. They didn’t know there were tickets left until their friend from Nasheen, Meli Sa, had inquired. Elsewise, they would have waited a long, long time. If not for her graces, there’d be no unified galaxy, no peace. Only a large group broken down into rebellious little alliances.

For that, we give much thanks.

So, this dream continues, but that will wait for another time. Another time long, long from now.

Ongoing Goings-On

Yes, we are going to see Episode One, also known as “The Phantom Menace”. We’re pretty pumped for it. Honestly, I think it’s a national holiday. But there are detractors out there. Can you believe there are people out there who honestly believe this movie is only a rip-off or a remake of the old Star Wars movies? Really! Poor souls.

Go figure.

For those of you who may be following my work on the Gutterhaunt site, it’s coming along rather well. I’m hammering out the details on the basic javascript which will be included on a majority of the pages, so, as yet, no online updates. Hold on for a while.

I have a dream…

I’m still seeking web hosts with space to rent. I have a few choices, and a set of favorable domain names, but money for setup I do not have. That’s what I get for having gone to a private college for too long, trying to pay for my own car, paying for the privelege of being online, and living the lifestyle to which I have become accustomed. However, I can’t wait to get set up. Wanna make a donation? Let’s talk!

I do, however, have a good idea for a domain name, and I rather like it. Those who know me know the name I’m talking about. It’s better than the ones I’ve been thinking of. We’ll see how it pans out.

Until later-
Ambassador Sha-Wuun

GOT DAMMIT?

Got Dammit?

Got Dammit?

Greetings. There’s been a little work on my banner ad, as well as the site. I updated the image above to include my site name and spiffed-up this page. I was in the mood to code.

Here’s the story behind the banner: one night, I said “God dammit” with a drawl, and it came out “got dammit.” Got Dammit? With a little bit of sleuthing, I found images of the Sistine Chapel and worked on them until I finished my vision. I love instant artistic gratification.

Ongoing Goings-On

For those of you who may be following my work on the Gutterhaunt site and wondering to yourself “Why the hell hasn’t he updated it?”, I assure you I’m still working on it. Like I said, I’m slow on the coding, the images, the updating, but I am still working on it. Sounds like an empty promise, doesn’t it?

Most of my time is sucked up by my job, my free time is spent taking care of a lot of business and pleasure, and by the time I do finally get free time, I’m drained. Sounds like an excuse. I know.

Walk a mile in my Skechers.
