    • Then again, if everyone's Self can be shown as a neuron, it sure plays right into a whole "collective consciousness" New Age kinda thing, m m m a a a a n n nnn.....

        • @scribus Blender is crazy easy to learn and there’s a lotta tutorials on YouTube, I’d give it a shot. The latest version has a real-time render engine too and most of its features are compatible with the other, slower, raytraced engine so if you have a halfway decent graphics card you can test materials and lighting situations and such fairly quickly.

        • @mrmattimation Keen. Right now, I kinda just want to make a logo from my old karate school into 3D. It's been done, but I'd rather not steal someone else's. And I do have other things, like an attempt to create a visual model of the Self as a 4-dimensional being with extensions into the Minds of others like that whole NG:E last two episodes acid trip. I think it'll just end up looking like lightning or a neuron, though...

            • @scribus I was playing Captain Toad Treasure Tracker (on WiiU) and just as I threw the last huge turnip at the crow and hit I slipped off the platform and died during the hit animation. It was quite frustrating and nerve-wracking as I had only one life left. During the whole gameplay I was not picking much money for lifes and was often time reckless and had not many lives.

                            • @adiwan Yeah, I'm more hoping the four members who left over it re-form or at least go on to more success than I am worrying for the one jackboot, lol. And I'm not super-surprised, because after 9/11 they took a hard Right, anyway. It's more just surreal to see happening. And I can't help thinking of Alice Cooper's take on rock in politics: "Why would you listen to US? We can't even hold down a real job!"

                            • Watched "Kill la Kill" and it was awful. Despite positive reviews my experience was not good. It contains huge and obvious plot holes. I can stretch my suspension of disbelief so far. It had some good characters in there but the plot weighted all down like an elephant on a cardboard box.

                              • @adiwan Yeah, that one's much more about antics and story than plot. And fanservice. Like, to such a core extent one wonders if it's even "service" anymore, lol.

                              • @scribus The fanservice was the least of my problems with it. The plot is so convoluted it hurts my intelligence. Sentient alien thread accelerates the evolution of humans so they can wear clothes, Then the thread is used to make super-powered magic clothes. Then the bad guys use the thread in normal clothing to enslave/transform humanity while the good guys have also thread on their bodies. Then the master plan is to engulf the earth with the magic thread so to make it pop and burst more thread into the universe. And then the whole school thing and trying to conquer other schools is also the dumbest thing in the series. Where is the military? Where are state officials? It's certainly concerning when there are huge military-grade fights all over the country without any consequences. My suspension of disbelief can handle only a limited amount of BS before it turns against the piece of fiction.

                            • And some of them, after struggling with them for 25 years, you just pretend it all makes sense in a philosophical quantum way like they totally swear it does. "Maybe in the original Japanese," you think," or maybe if I understood the cultural memes more deeply," you tell yourself. But then the director claims the whole thing can be understood through a Socratic lens and you just kind of shrug and give up all over again....
