Allopreening Feature
Allopreening is a behavior often seen in a mated pair of birds (allogrooming also occurs in mammal species most notably primates). Allopreening is the mutual preening of another birds feathers. Sometimes the preening will switch back and forth from bird to bird. This behavior can be performed to enhance feather maintenance (keeping feathers clean of parasites) or to strengthen social bonds. The receiver of the preening will often lower their head, fluff out their feathers and in general have an 'Awwmygawh that feels good' look on their face. Birds attached to humans will also preen their humans, either trying to preen their hair, beard, moustache, eyebrows...eyelashes... It's one of the most adorable bird behaviors I've ever seen (well, with the exception of a parrot trying to preen your eyelashes, that might hurt).
So here is a feature of birds being adorable with each other!

The Image
Before I say anything else, if you're an artist you should go buy both of James Gurney's books about painting.  If you like the approach this blog takes to analyzing paintings, you'll love Gurney's approach in these books.  The one this painting is from is Color and Light: A Guide for the Realist Painter, and his first one is Imaginative Realism: How to Paint What Doesn't Exist.  (As a former technical writer I also like the presentation - each topic is a 2-page spread with a summar

Paper Villains
On writing three-dimensional villains

Do you remember the Big Bad Wolf? He destroyed the Three Little Pigs' houses and ate them (or only chased them, depending on the rendition). He ran to Little Red Riding Hood's home and devoured her grandmother. The Big Bad Wolf appears in countless fairy tales to eat and terrorize the general populace.
In many children's stories, the Big Bad Wolf is symbolic for the negative consequences that can follow bad choices. Two of the Three Little Pigs failed to work hard on their houses, allowing the wolf to blow them over with his tremendous breath. Littl

A Note on the SFTT Before Last (SFTT #59 Spoilers)
So, QUITE a few of you commented on Search for the Truth #59 being all like "BUT HANDY IS THE DOCTOR'S SON TECHNICALLY" or something to that effect.
I'd like to clear that up for you now if I could, and at least give you my opinion on what Russell tried to explain to us.
Thanks to Russell T Davies, the whole 'Handy' situation doesn't make much sense. RTD claimed that Handy was half Doctor, half Donna, but he's obviously like 80% or at the very least 60% Doctor. He doesn't seem to have any of Donna's memories or identify himself as Donna in any way. He's the Doctor. He looks like the Doctor, acts (mostly) like the Doctor, dresses like the Doctor and likes the same ladies. Now, no one was terrifically clever in Journey's End, so it's a bit hard to tell if he's as clever as the Doctor. I mean, he ran at Davros like a bit of an idiot, but at least he was clever enough to build the thing he was going to throw at Davros' face or whatever. So let's just say he's quite clever and that wasn't a

My Best Motivational Tip
When I become overcome with the guilt and shame and fear as a result of my constant procrastination, I have one trick to get me off my ass that works every time.
Now, lots of other people and blogs and whatever are all like "look how lucky you are" and "puppies and rainbows" and "if you get it done now, you'll feel better" and lots of other positive shit. While all this stuff is true, I'm still playing Assassin's Creed II for like four hours a day. It doesn't motivate me at all. I still don't want to write a 500 word essay on the subtle differences between the book and the film adaptation of The Road that's due, like, tomorrow.
So here's what I think of.
"Michael Bay wants me to fail."
Insert your own celebrity arch nemesis if you want to, but basically choose someone so crap that it makes you angry. Preferably someone who's getting paid buckets of money to do whatever they do to piss you off.
Competitive nature and the desire to prove your chosen asshole wrong should take over.

More Shiny Firefly Goodness
Greetings All!
I wanted to share this with all of you, as it's been a lot of fun for me. Last weekend at Sci-Fi Expo in Dallas, my friend Christina, was able to deliver some of my various Firefly headsculpts to the actors themselves. Adam Baldwin received a full fledged 12" figure of Jayne, complete with hat and Vera. :D (The figure was put together by the amazing talents over at Sideshow Freaks Forum:
Below is a link to a great video and some photos. Many thanks go out to Christina and Jenn for sharing this with me. While it's wonderful to be thanked by Adam Baldwin, that custom figure wouldn't have been possible without everyone at Sideshow Freaks pulling together their resources and talents. And the headsculpt only looks nice because of the amazing paintwork from Nathan Eakins.

I don't know why it has stuck with me all these years, but I totally remember the Animaniacs/Animoprhiacs song you and your dad made up XD

We're Animorphiacs.
When we see Yeerks they make tracks
Then we morph into a tiger
And eat them all for snacks
We're Animophiacs!

We're Animorphs because one day we met an Andalite
We met him by his spaceship at a 'bandoned building site
Then Visser 3, he showed up
And they began to fight
We're Animorphaics!

lol, that's awesome! XD

I totally remember that song, too, but lately I could only remember "Then we morph into a tiger and eat them all for snacks" part. ^^

I should make a little Flash cartoon with this song and wacky animation...
