Catgirl War Correspondent

Wednesday, October 21st, 2009

Dear Internets, you know her from taking on the terrorists in Paragon City. Now she serves as Ayarane Project’s War Correspondent. Next on the parade of podcast personalities… Action Cat!

“Terrorists beware! Action Cat comes for YOU!”
Though her primary role is to report on the War on Terror, old habits die hard, and she still carries a (magically-concealed) assault rifle. You know, just in case.

Of course, she needs a cameraman, and who better to capture it all than Lakitu? He’s joined the HD age and traded in his old film camcorder for a high-definition DV model. And in a pinch, his cloud can expand to hold more passengers. Action Cat herself is packing a bluetooth earpiece… though despite what it looks like, the ear part of it is just for decoration, since they obviously haven’t made a version for catgirls yet. However, because the flapping became an issue with the sound recording, she decided to ditch the cape.

Action Cat makes a fairly disturbing discovery early into her assignment– those terrorists are, in fact, bulldogs! Rogue bulldogs pretending to be members of Al-Qaeda. Nobody suspects bulldogs, of course, because everyone is so entranced by their smooshed, vacant faces and such, but we at Ayarane Project know better.

Prinny Governators… dood

Tuesday, October 20th, 2009

We continue running with the crazy notion of the yet-to-be-named Ayarane Project podcast by introducinng the characters. Surely many of you are already familiar with Action Cat (whose AP podcast incarnation will be based on the Action Cat that appears in City of Heroes) so I’ll bring her out in a later post.

For now, meet Prinny Arnold, who unlike Action Cat is not fixed to a particular segment, but I imagine will often interject in WTF, California? segments.

“Come with me if you want to live, dood!”
Rather than simply pull Grand Theft Conan and stick a photoshopped Governator in the Conveniently Placed Viewscreen, I thought it would be funnier to turn him into a Prinny. He’s a red Prinny with Governor Schwarzenegger’s hair and the squinty eyes, and also wears a tie… just because. Though he still has the AHNOLD voice… like any other Prinny he adds “dood” at the end of sentences.

Instead of the usual machetes that all Prinnies carry, he dual-wields Prinny-sized machine guns, and carries Bob-Ombs instead of the normal bombs that Prinnies normally carry. Sometimes he’ll even wear sunglasses just to look badass. He also likes ice cream.

He cannot use the Pringer Beam ability, but has a fitting replacement– a Terminator head that fires eyebeams!

Prinny Arnold likes California so naturally he’d be a little miffed if people hate on it for whatever reason (being broke, having weird weather, the Proposition 8 controversy, etc.). Unfortunately, attempts to intervene in defense of his favorite state tend to backfire… literally– something tends to happen that results in him exploding (because, you know, Prinnies explode when thrown, and unlike the Hero Prinny’s scarf, that Governor’s Tie doesn’t protect him from exploding), like falling off the desk, or banging his head on the desk in frustration. Fortunately for him, exploding resets his term limits, enabling him to remain in office forever.

Being a Prinny in this “universe,” of course, obviously implies that he died as a human. Now how did THAT happen? o.O Perhaps some kind of freak accident? *shrug*


Half-baked subconscious podcast ambitions?

Weird dream time. (ftr, last thing I ate was angel hair pasta w/ garlic bread)

Apparently I had a video podcast. Except instead of actual video of me, it was more like a bunch of CG stills of me behind a desk, with RANDOM COSPLAY. It was kinda like Rachel Maddow with a heavy Azumanga/Lucky Star slant. Also there was a Twitter Ticker at the bottom.

Could this be done in real life? Possibly… however, right now I’m having issues getting the audio part of my bluetooth to cooperate (probably because I got a cheap-ass adapter) and I have a bunch of existing Ramen to clear out first before I can even think about drawing up the base stills. I stll and will always hate the sound of my own voice, but apparently most of the internets find it tolerable or even cute, so I guess that wouldn’t be an issue. If anything, this would be a use for my YouTube channel (since I have apparently misplaced my GameBridge and can’t finish the .hack phase battle captures until I get my HD capture box in December). :P

Not to mention, what the hell would I even call this thing? Happy Hour with Yoshi Ayarane? From the Desk of Your Overlord? The Ramen Factor? or something equally ridiculous…

Bad Ramen potential alert!

Saturday, September 26th, 2009

I’ve a full Ramen plate right now. Gourmet Ramen and Pundit Games Episode 5 (and I still need to do a back-posting of previous episodes that I held back), oh, and holidays are coming up, too… Halloween, and because I hate Thanksgiving, Snowschemes will once again be starting up in November.

That said, however… reading voice actor Twitter– specifically, that belonging to one Yuri Lowenthal— planted this seed of a nagging idea that I will eventually have to address for epic hilarity:

“If Final Fantasy 4 had Twitter”
(Doesn’t this sound like it could be a Conan O’Brien segment? XD)

Yeah, you chew on that. Think of the stupid-hilarity of Cecil tweeting about things like, oh, the infamous Spoony Bard thing, or Fusoya’s impossibly-long beard. This could potentially be as awful (and thus awesome) as that one time I drew Haruko and Velan as Beavis and Butthead.

In other news, Papa Johns got massive awesome points yesterday for bringing back its “John’s Favorite” spec (basically an enhanced version of the sausage and pepperoni spec that I am so fond of). I don’t know if this is a temporary reinstatement or if, like their Chocolate pastries, this is permanent… but it is definitely squee-worthy all the same. :D

(Instant Ramen Sketchbook) Of Mob Scenes and Party Vans

(sourced from the DA pile rather than the Ramen subserver because I can, they’ll get posted to the Ramen subserver later)

Aaaaahahahaha I am the worst liberal in the world! And by that I mean I’ve been naughty and made ramen offerings to the MSNBC gods. It just kinda happened, ESPECIALLY the latter.

Best Mob in the World
My inclination to mentally draw parallels between the absurdity of cable news and Azumanga Daioh is going to come back and bite me. Or it could spawn things far more horrible. (Like more episodes of Pundit Games!) For reasons I… don’t quite remember, I was possessed to scribble just about every major MSNBC dood I could think of– not just the primetime heavy hitters like Olbermann and friends, but also the morning and daytime anchors too.

Click for the fullview if you want a full list of all the happy people.

Also I will never, ever get over Chris Matthews’ XD face. Every piece I’ve drawn him in, he’s had the XD face. It’s almost like Xelloss and his near-perma-^_^ face. The man is defined by that Velan-esque “HAH,” one that has become so widespread that both Hardball and Countdown have “HAH” sound bites (similar to how many news stations now have a “D’oh!” button).

Speaking of silliness…

MSNBC Party Van

This is not the FBI Party Van that you are looking for, the one you hear about on 4chan and affiliated acts.
No, this is the opposite! This is the MSNBC Party Van, the clunker that brings joy and awesome, and breaks up acts of lameitude.
(I’m not sure if MSNBC has its own van fleet, or if all the NBC subnets just draw from the same NBC van fleet. Nonetheless, I totally pulled the design for the MSNBC Party Van out of nowhere. Go me!)

This was a sudden scribble, per request of a new community that needed a banner. Ordinarily the next piece in the political ramen queue was going to be another Pundit Games piece, but it got preempted in favor of the MSNBC Party Van.
And yes, the license plate is “BU5H3D1” :P

Fear not, the Oasis pic is still a go– it merely requires ink and color.
Also, a hint for things to come in the normal ramen queue… Skeleton Generals are best enjoyed extra crispy!
