So far today I have been sore all over because of the cold and the playing of Wii on saturday night. I have a splitting headache and I just spent the morning at a funeral. Unless I
a) Log into warcraft and have epics rain upon me
b) Spontaneously develop my burgeoning guitar skills
c) Figure out what I'm doing wrong with all the Bryce scenes that have mountains that look faintly lumpy
or
d) Lose a stone without ebola

to balance it all out, then I'm afraid January 22nd will have won.

On the somewhat morbid topic of funerals. Is there an address I could send a memo to in order to suggest that perhaps priests at such ceremonies lighten up on the "It is so *totally* awesome that this person is dead and kickin' it up in heaven" aspect? Furthermore, the whole "God has called his servant home" bit makes God sound like an inconsiderate jerk. I liked it better when it was more of a mysterious plan as opposed to a premeditated divine strike.

That being said, this morning's one wasn't for a relative or anything, a friend's mum passed away over the weekend but for the record, when my time comes I want wailing, gnashing of teeth, sack cloth and funky bass licks and "Awesome Forces" by the Aquabats. Ave Maria can kiss my ass.

Another pic behind the cut. I'm not counting this as one of the bunch for the year because it is essentially the same deal as the last one, I was just tinkering with the shaders and settings in the Terragen 2 preview beta thingy. Terragen 2 is interesting, those crags aren't possible in most landscape packages and almost always involve taking bits of ground terrain and twisting them at 45 degrees off-camera so it looks like those shears while Terragen2 just lets you force the model and the landscape into that shape. The skies are more of the fractal generations, two of them this time. I also learned the value of backups because you might notice a line about 2/3 of the way across the picture from the left where some of the left fractal comes to an end and the sky begins, by the time I noticed that it was too late to go back and finish it because I'd saved the image as a final flat jpeg.
