Vernin Draw

So I thought I'd try something different today. And I think it can be pretty cool. 
Here's what's going to happen:

You tell me something to draw in the comments and I'll select the most appealing idea and upload what I've drawn in the next post. We'll be refering to this as: Draw Vernin, Draw!

So let's hear those great ideas everyone!
Oh, dammit! I forgot I was going to let Lain post some pitchas today...



Hello! Vernin was so kind. He's letting me post my pictures today! I truly hope you all enjoy them, even if just a tiny bit. ^_^

Here goes!

"Oh, you can drop me off in that stream down there. Thanks again for the lift Tom."

Highway to Heaven 


Stop guys!! You're makin' me hungry..

Well that's about all I got for today. I hope you liked my selection. It was really hard to convince Vernin to let me post on here today. 

Buh Bye!

Vernin's Reviews - Volume Two

Alright my peeps,
It's time for the second installment of my reviews. It surely has been awhile!
This time I'll be reviewing a science-fiction film, and a PC game. Now I've mentioned this in the first volume, but for you new readers I shall say it again: I usually don't review things of horrible quality. So you can expect there to be 10 out of 10 scorings quite often in my reviews. Actually I think I'll move to a 5-star scoring system this time.

Science-Fiction Film 
Silent Running

        Silent Running is a 1972 film set in the distant future. It takes place on a space freighter carrying various cargo, most importantly: many bio-domes containing forests from Earth. Our planet Earth's environment had finally crumbled at the hands of man, and man resorted to preserving the ecosystems. 
        When the freighter carrying the forests is ordered to destroy the domes and return to Earth to continue commercial freighting, one man decides that it cannot be. He is determined to preserve the forests at any cost. 

        The set design in this film is great. If you like the old special effects like seen in Star Wars and other space films from that era, then you'll surely enjoy the imagery in this movie. 
        There are also autonomous "Drones." They are simply two-legged boxes with a retractable arm. They really spice up the movie a lot. 

Here is the main character with his two drone friends: Huey and Dewey. 
( He is teaching them how to plant a tree. )

Now, there is one down-side to this film. Unfortunately there are three really annoying songs throughout the movie. They are horrible. But besides that, I find it tough to find a flaw in this production. 

I, Vernin, give it a 5 out of 5 

PC Game
Command and Conquer - Generals

        This game has been out on the shelves for years now. But I just recently started playing it again. And I thought it would be nice to do a  review. 
        As some of you may know, this game is of the Real Time Strategy genre. You can expect the same premise as all of the older 
C & C games. Build up a base, create units, manage resources, research new technologies and so forth. 
        What puts this title apart from its predocessors, is that the graphics are completely 3D. Also the technologies seem to be a lot more plausible than in the older titles. 
        There are three races to choose from. The Chinese, the Americans and the GLA - which is essentially a Middle-Eastern terrorist organization. They are all pretty well rounded, although playing against the USA gets frustrating sometimes. The GLA is my favorite. They have biological weapons, and best of all a SCUD Launcher. 

All in all though, it's not my favorite RTS game. I'm a StarCrafter at heart. :3
But if you're looking for a new game to mess around with and you enjoy the RTS genre, then check er out. The voices for the GLA workers will soothe your soul. With great lines such as: "Can I please have a hammer?" to: "I want to see my family."
Tanks a lot!

I, Vernin, give it a 4 out of 5

I hope you've enjoyed Volume Two. It didn't have as much content as the first one, and that is due to me brain not thinking of enough shit to review. 

I'll leave you with a few images.

See? There is a god.

Ahhh...High School.

Vernin, signing off. 
Oh, and before I forget: Lain was expressing that she would like to post something next time. I don't know how you all feel about this, but please give your input. 

Goodbye my fellow travelers.

It is 4 in the morning. Time for a story!

Greetings my fellow humans, 
            Tonight was a strange night in which I, Vernin, traveled close to downtown Denver to visit a friend of mine in the old Gates Rubber factory. A nice home he had indeed, but the foxes made it a troublesome journey home. 
They will try to talk to you, but the best thing to do is just run. RUN FOR YOUR LIFE!
But hey, I am a rat and this doesn't really apply to you at all. 

           So I believe it is time for a short story. But it is not I who will tell this tale. I give you, my friend Lain:

Hmm...such a fine collection of cigarette butts...
Oh! How rude of me! I'm supposed to be telling you guys a story!
Well, okay then. It's a short story about a sentient being by the name of Florian...

Far, far away in the Seas of Despair and Longing lies the lab of Prof. Nezumi.
Here is where he mastered the field of robotics without anyone's knowledge. 
Receiving money from his close friends - Fritz Hilpert and Ralf Hütter - he was free to run his experiments far from humanity.

On October 6th, 2003, Nezumi reached a critical breakthrough in which he summoned the spirit of Iboga. With it's permission he was able to install the spirit The Wired. Iboga was free to travel the web. He most enjoyed bidding for Weevils on Ebay.

(The Wired is a creation of Nezumi's. It was able to take objects and put them into the digital realm)

This was not enough for Iboga though. He wanted also to explore the earth in a physical form. 
Operation Puppeteer began on that day - Dec. 28, 2003. 
( Spiffy after a long night in the KC opium dens )
With the help of his most trusted friend Spiffy, Nezumi was able to create the boy he had always wanted. And now with Iboga desperately searching for a vessel, he also had a soul to insert into one of his android proto-types. 
It was unsure whether or not Iboga would integrate with the AI already created for the body. But being a very impatient spirit, Iboga refused to wait for Nezumi's tests and prompted to be integrated with the android immediately. 

Florian was created that night. He tells Nezumi that he has chosen a name for himself and would like to participate in electronica dance competitions. 
Before he could be stopped from leaving the laboratory, he flies to Mobile, Alabama to live as a drunk, assembly-line worker. 
"I thought he was the best little worker since Brett Garrison. Nobody was better at getting the vending machines un-jammed either...I miss that bastard with all my shit." 
-Factory Owner, Mr. Hikashi speaks about his experiences with Florian.

So many things happened in the short time of Florian's existence. It is truly impossible to go into detail. And because not many people knew him, there are barely any accounts of his life at all. 

But here are some things that I do know:

In 2007 he installed Windows and became Highly unstable. Shortly thereafter he proceeded to destroy a small   village in Peru. The casualties were small, but the damage was estimated in the four dollar range. 

He participated in a scaled down reenactment of Pearl Harbor in 2008. You can see Florian standing at the sandbags above. It was his duty to throw the cherry bombs. 

In 2010 he fused with a moth and an Apache chief to become Glorian. 
But the fusion would not last. He became too powerful and thus became weak overtime. 
With the combination of this fusion and an addiction to microwavable tamales, he died of an orgasm in late July of that year. He left behind a the most extensive collection of Rocko's Modern Life memorabilia that there ever was. 

Oh my god I am so messed up! I sincerely hope it did not impair my ability to bring you the great story of Florian. If it did, then I am sorry! ^^ 
Well I must leave, Vernin hates it if I talk to much on his blog...
...I'll leave you with this picture.

          I hope you enjoyed Lain's story. She may tell more in the future. Her story telling is really the best I think. 

Tune in next time where I blog about my pet moss. It doesn't have a name yet, but it is growing comfortably in an attractive jar. 

This is Vernin The Rat, signing off to watch my favorite character, Data. 
Rats off to ya!

From the lands of Japan

So it has been a little while since I've sat down to create a blog-posting. I was on some travels to visit a buddy of mine in the subways of Chicago. (It's a rough place.)

So seeing as it has been awhile, there really is nothing else to do but bring you quality images from Japanese image-boards. 
It is one of my past-times to save these in folders and now, today, I bring them to you!

 J a p a n
L a n d   o f   D r e a m s . . .

|         please  |
send            |
|       dream      |
|              soon |
 0(" )o

you must wait for them
. . . 

. . .

. . .

But in the end, the waiting pays off. 
 ( Japan dreams are fucking great. )
You find many things.
Some more wondrous than others.

 And Ultimately you realize that: The Void is not too bad and that you wish to visit on a regular basis, for Vernin will do the same for you!

o-o--- More to come later tonight! ---o-o
o- At the moment I do not have access to all of my folders -o
o-o--- Tune in and drop out with Vernin at anytime! ---o-o

This has to happen

Greetings fellow Earthlings, 

    I think it's about time to post some images. 
                 Boo Yuh!  Here's a good one:

 Cool eh? Last post had too much writing, I need some Straight-Up Imagery in this bitch.
 This was made by John Berkey. He is an astonishing Sci-Fi illustrator.

 Here is more from the Russian painter Shishkin.
You simply must view it full-sized
 Salvador Dali painting done in 1978. A rare, hard to find image here...full size it if you want. 
This is an optical illusion that I made. It Should appear to be 3D...
 I'd feel bad not posting a link to this fellow artist's page:

    OK, that's it for this post. 

     I've gotten rid of the insights section for now. I'm not sure if I'll bring that was pissing me off and it felt forced. 
Ahh, feels good to end a post without an insight.

Vernin, signing off. Stay cool and question all authority.
