||Moving along briefly
Posted on May 6th, 2012
|A good chunk of the day was spent redoing another page for DBHL. The big twist is that this edit produced the new design for the tutorial pages, so that moves things along a tad faster. At the very least, it would be nice to keep up the page a day speed in the future.
During the evening I watched MLP:The Movie again while working on the new models for Background Service. I'm going to push a bit to get that going again in the next few months. I want it up and running again.
On another note, since I've been watching G1 MLP lately, I picked up a number of things that aren't easily evident in the movie. For example, the corrupted behavior of the ponies and bushwoolies that had been splashed by the Smooze is more striking if you have an idea of how they normally behave. Another example is that some of the dialogue is extra punny, but you'd need to know the ponies to spot it. Take the insults that Smooze-splattered Gusty hurls at the others. She calls Fizzy a "bubble brain". Now that's a perfectly valid insult in and of itself, but once you know that Fizzy's special unicorn ability is making magical bubbles, you realize that Gusty just mocked the very thing that makes Fizzy special. This is along the lines of Fluttershy mocking Rarity and Pinkie Pie for living their lives around frivolous things like parties and fashion. Brutal.
The remainder of the day was a healthy mix of DFO, Jewel Quest 2 and a lot of thinking about things.
Tomorrow will be full of some old school gaming goodness.
For the link of the day, have a short story about two octopi in wuv.
