Acta est fabula plaudite [Furfur Diary 19]

"A deer walks up to the twin gods. Says he has a problem. Says he feels like hes getting weaker, can't see as well as he could, isn't feeling quite himself lately.
Twin Gods look at him and say "it's part of life, get back into the swing of things. You'll have plenty of time to rest when you've passed on."

Deer says "But I'm already dead."

Curtain drops. Everyone applauds. The show is over and yet there is still one jackass sitting in the middle of the stage who just refuses to leave.

Surely, the show must go on.
Surely, we have another act.
Surely, we can practice that again?

And stop calling me Shirley.

Most days I feel like I am that one. Sitting around, hanging on, just complacent to sit and wait to see if the thin veil between what I once knew as life was to offer any more excitement.

Still standing there, behind the curtains, waiting for the next show long after the last bow has been taken and the lights were dimmed.

You've had your spot in the sunlight.
You've held the stage for too long.
Just move on. You had your moment.

You faced your evil, you got the girl..well for a bit at least. Not really. Lost the girl, but had a great story in the midst of it. Died. Came back. Died again. Came back, still dead, but fighting. Lost yourself again now...


Have a break from it all, give a chance to stretch out. Give everyone some time to get back on their feet. It was unknown at the time, however, that the audience would not be returning for the second act.

So he stands there.
Staring out through the trees with that vague expression of amusement and a low cow head tilt as if to say...

"Surely, you don't believe you'll get rid of me that easy?"

Title meaning "The play has been performed; applaud!"

Damn it!

I completely missed my 1 year on TEF.
Figures I would with it being so close to the busy time of the year.
Ah well, Happy late birthday/TEF anniversary to me.

Fake English...

"Prisecolinensinenciousol, a parody by Adriano Celentano for the Italian TV programme Mileluci is sung entirely in gibberish designed to sound like American English.

If you've ever wondered what other people think Americans sound like, this is it."

The Flower-Growing Friars

"Puns are little plays on words that a certain breed of person loves to spring on you and then look at you in a certain self-satisfied way to indicate that he thinks that you must think that he is by far the cleverest person on earth now that Benjamin Franklin is dead, when in fact what you are thinking is that if this person ever ends up in a lifeboat, the other passengers will hurl him overboard by the end of the first day even if they have plenty of food and water."~Dave Barry

I heard a tornado siren.
But it was special.
Because it was the first thing I have heard in almost a month.

But that's not the reason I really posted.


It was a doctor's regular habit to stop off at a bar for a hazelnut daiquiri on his way home and, aware of his habit, the bartender would always have the drink waiting for him at precisely 5:18 PM. One afternoon as the end of the work-day neared the bartender was dismayed to find he was out of hazelnut extract but, thinking quickly, he threw together a daiquiri made with hickory nuts and set it on the bar. The doctor came in at his regular time, took one sip of the drink, then exclaimed: "This isn't a hazelnut daiquiri", to which the bartender replied, "No, I'm sorry, it's a hickory daiquiri, doc."

Could use spamming :)

Could I get someone to spam the secretary pelt and real deer antlers on Furfur?

>>>>>>>This pictogram<<<<<<<<

Looking for the real deer antlers and secretary pelt.

I can take care of the dotd mask on my own. Smiling

He'll be sleeping on the bridge most of the night until I return from work.

Inspired for a design change [Gore warning/semi-TEF]

Happy Halloween TEF!
Enjoy my dabbling in burned skin effects at the link below.

I'm really digging the burn look and might incorporate it into Furfur's design since I've never really thought out what specifically the damage under his mask looks like and I think it'd be interesting in incorporate.

Also will totally post a tutorial if anyone is interested in scaring their mates with this on halloween.
Watch this spot for when I actually work on his redesign if you're interested.
Figured I'd post something before going ahead with designing his face and having someone go "NOOOO MY DEER HAS THAT!!" or what have you.

Don't worry it's just makeup

Heading in forest/Updates/Need help for TEF theme'd piece

Heading in forest on a naked Furfur for a while. Would appreciate any spells you wanna throw at my baby.

Updates as of I took up metalwork/smithing so that is pretty much eating all of my life. I barely have time to sleep or spend time with my family/friends between the hours I spend in the studio grinding away at and shaping/forming metal and at class/work. re-did some sketches and hopefully sometime I'll be able to sit down and work on it all. Time management is not my friend.

I intend to do a TEF themed piece out of metal but cannot really decide what I should do.

For reference I can do any sort of jewelry/chain mailing/jump rings/pendant making/embossing/shaping/cutting/melting etc.

I work almost exclusively in brass and copper due to availability and cost.

I just need Ideas for what someone may want to see.

I normally get about 1 week to complete a project so as fun as a life sized TEF deer would be, it's not happening.

Could probably manage a small sculpture. -musing-

Edit: pictos won't spread.
Enjoy a catchy song instead.

New laptop on the 19th...

Long story short my laptop completely crashed and I cannot really enter the forest without it going to hell and crashing. I also cannot open any of my photoshop programs so all of the long standing requests have been completely thrown to the side since my only free time is the 3 hours between classes which I have no access to my programs.

Anyway around the 19th I'll be getting my new laptop and can finally be in forest/work on owed pictures.
