goryteller: (what is my life)

twenty-four. video.

[The communicator is focused on a darkened wall. A beam of light. A shadow puppet emerges, a grotesque face with "lips" that move in time with Katurian's voice.]

I feel like a pig about to be slaughtered.

[The face collapses. He uses his hands to form the shadow into a pig, appropriately. He squeals, shrill, and then chokes on a laugh. High pitched, pig-like:]

A dog about to be put down.

[He forms his hands, predictably, into a dog. BARK BARK, he goes, moving the shadow's jaw. He uncurls his hands without fanfare this time, clearing his throat. Growing unsteady. The camera stays on the empty wall.]

Tell me how you feel today. With art.
viced: (Won't have the pleasure)

[ Probably an hour after Katurian posts, Mitch replies with a video focused on a piece of paper with a pretty detailed (but still relatively crudely drawn) building, and with the video on, and a pencil in hand, he draws a circle, and then a :( in the middle of the circle on the side of the building. ]

What's with the death theme?

[ Oh Katurian he knows what you're doin' there ]

That's more a general descriptor of the week thus far, but it sounds like you're having an even shittier day.
viced: (If I were a real hero)

One of those years? Already?

[ A small pause ]

Anyway, I think the alien shit is a pretty good reason for anyone to be a bit distressed.
viced: (Seriously...)

You've got that right. Everyone's on edge, and for good reason, it's difficult to trust, and it's difficult to plan.

Not that it's hopeless, but I've never dealt with aliens before, and weird shit is generally something I thought I'd gotten a good handle on.
viced: (Sidelong)

[personal profile] viced 2012-02-10 11:55 pm (UTC)(link)
Oh, I wouldn't doubt it. I've never heard of them trying to infiltrate an escaped scientist from Vulcanus, though.
viced: (Eeeh)

[ A pause ]

I hadn't even thought of that. None that I know of.
viced: (Puppy eyes)

[ Silence for just a moment. ]

We don't. Not really. Do we even know where they are right now?

Oh my God, really?

Wow, Mr. Mayor, I think we found our new campaign poster.
viced: (/eyeroll)

voice;

[personal profile] viced 2012-02-10 04:06 am (UTC)(link)
Just slap Hundred for Mayor on it, and we'll call it a day. I'm sure it'll be the topic of conversation for the next month or so. Hell, it's better than some posters I've had.
enigmaestro: (Tangent.)

[personal profile] enigmaestro 2012-02-10 04:09 am (UTC)(link)
Wait, wait, I got it. 'Mayor Hundred: Building You A More Realistic Tomorrow'.

Get it? Building.
viced: (Factoid!)

voice;

[personal profile] viced 2012-02-10 04:18 am (UTC)(link)
Nope, didn't pick that one up. [ so. Flat. ] And a more realistic tomorrow? Really? Let's not get anyone's hopes up here.
enigmaestro: (I haz a point.)

[personal profile] enigmaestro 2012-02-10 04:19 am (UTC)(link)
Well you're the one who included a frowning blob.
viced: (Hurf)

voice;

[personal profile] viced 2012-02-10 04:26 am (UTC)(link)
That's because I'm shit at drawing people, and buildings aren't exactly descriptive on their own. There's a reason I was a civil engineer instead of, oh say, a comic book artist.
enigmaestro: (Aw crap.)

voice;

[personal profile] enigmaestro 2012-02-10 04:31 am (UTC)(link)
A comic book artist.

[The thought of Mitchell drawing him creeps him out.]
viced: (Oh hell)

voice;

[personal profile] viced 2012-02-10 12:48 pm (UTC)(link)
Yeah, when I was a kid and thought the blue blob I'd drawn was a dead ringer for Superman.

[ That would be the creepiest ]
enigmaestro: (Arched.)

voice;

[personal profile] enigmaestro 2012-02-10 05:54 pm (UTC)(link)
When you were a kid. How old was this, exactly?
viced: (I don't get you)

voice;

[personal profile] viced 2012-02-10 08:15 pm (UTC)(link)
I don't know, five or six? Why?
enigmaestro: (Gigglefits.)

[personal profile] enigmaestro 2012-02-10 08:34 pm (UTC)(link)
Oh.

I was picturing fifteen.
viced: (Are you shitting me)

[personal profile] viced 2012-02-10 08:55 pm (UTC)(link)
Oh come on! I think by that age I had more important things to worry about!
