Creative Consultant Newsround

Newsround No.2, 8/2/2007.


Welcome to the Second Creative Consultant Newsround of 2007, brought to you by Rad, Executive Consultant to the Fearless Leader of the Creative Consultancy, Phauxe Kitsune. After the packed newsround last week, we’ve had a much quieter creative week on The Radiated Society. Sketch Friday was indeed rather disappointing this week with only our Pun Emperor, Bucky Goldberg, saving us from drawing a complete blank and in fact he did a little ‘drawing’ of his own as you will find out. My own excuse is that I was up to 3:41am trying to read ‘Heart of Darkness’ for my English class, I fell asleep, my alarm rang twenty minutes later and I spent the next four hours writing an essay on how post-colonial literature is wrong to identify Conrad’s work as a racist text, spent half-an-hour on a bus, spent a further hour at the English tutorial, spent another half-hour on a bus before falling asleep for the next nineteen hours. Eh sorry, it would have taken less time to say my excuse was that my English tutor’s a babe.

Luckily in spite of the schedule, fan-fiction continued to roll into the TRS Library in the form of poetry and fiction and saved us from having an All-Nav Newsround. Thank you Jesus. Also we have the final Skittle nomination list ready and the Creative Skittles and a link to the Award thread will be published at the end of this newsround.

Finally here’s a reminder of the upcoming Friday schedule. Next Friday is a Fan-Fic Friday and although Sketch Friday was more Fan-Fic than Sketch that should still be honoured. Keep those fictions coming in and start writing your funny stuff for the Sketch Friday on February 16th.

February 9 - Fan-Fic Friday
February 16 - Sketch Friday
February 23 - Fan-Fic Friday
March 2 - Sketch Friday
March 9 - Fan-Fic Friday
March 16 - Sketch Friday
March 23 - Fan-Fic Friday
March 30 - Sketch Friday
April 6 – Fan-Fic Friday

This Week in Puns

http://www.stgfc.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=3158

Navarro’s Pun Empire has become famous for the way it tackles issues that really matter in this society. Indeed only last week, he examined such controversial subjects such as nymphomania and the break-up of relationships as well as voicing his concern over the tendency for young Jewish men to join ‘Cowboy gangs’, who ride around suburban America on horses, shoot their rifles wildly in the air and terrorize locals. This week Nav continues this focus on our world’s problems by looking at the morality of sport that is based on male violence. I do not want to ruin the plot for you but I will say it made me greatly question my own preference for sports such as boxing and wrestling. Also, it was very funny.

The Poetry Level*

http://www.stgfc.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=3187

With all our other poets looking forward to the next Fan-Fic Friday, Iguana Bob unusually published his new work on Sketch Friday and created one of the more unusual poems to be seen on the Society. ‘Oh, Haemoglobin’ is a very enjoyable humanisation of those little (god bless Wikipedia) iron-containing oxygen-transport metalloprotein in the red blood cells of the blood in vertebrates and other animals. It’s a very interesting poem and funny too, the little touches of spontaneity such as ‘This is the compulsory forth stanza’ really add to the poem. Even if you don’t know what a Bohr shift is, and I certainly don’t, you’ll completely accept the poem as everything strange about it makes sense in its own little world.

*(poetry received after 6th February will be covered in next week’s Newsround)

A Character Development Sketch

http://www.stgfc.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=3186

This week Zed wrote a ‘character development sketch’ which is a pretty bland name for the eye-popping cornucopia of light, death and destruction that he published on Friday. It is a new fantasy story about a traumatised and newly-orphaned young boy whose screams of grief are so strong they awaken the Goddess Alanir. Her terrible offer of ‘help’ leads to the death of all in the vicinity of his village, both villains and victims, and Alanir is cursed with incredible but deadly powers he may struggle to control. I really enjoyed it and it definitely has real potential if it can work around the problems that come with a character who seems impossibly powerful, though I’m sure it will and not turn into that awful ‘Jedi of Unsurpassable Power’ nonsense I wrote for a Galactic Battlegrounds campaign. The body count for this piece is also very impressive, most likely reaching into the thousands in only 500 words, hopefully we’ll see if Zed will keep that amount of killing in a continuation of Alanir’s story.

Photo-Editing Skills!

http://www.stgfc.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=3190

Not much to say here, just that Nav now possesses the ability the flood a city which is an extremely cool development in the usually ‘Draw-a-moustache-on-Sharp’s-head’ photo-editing tradition. Most photo-editing is for purposes of humour, so why not try and draw a few for Sketch Friday on February 16th. Doesn’t need to be anything fancy, see any Crude Bitmap or Iguana Bob Comic to see that crude is funny.

Skittles

The final list of nominates for the Skittles has been confirmed...

http://www.stgfc.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=3192

Also, I’ve had problems with my internet laptop since Monday, liquid was spilt over the keyboard and now the keyboard’s slightly buggered. Most of the keys do work, the laptop is otherwise fine and I’ve got internet access in university but I can’t create new graphics for headlines at the moment, and if certain headlines can’t have them, then I think it looks better to not have any. If I get the fallout font onto my non-internet laptop, the graphics will return though. Sorry for the inconvenience.

And that concludes the second Creative Consultant Newsround of the New Year.

Thanks Rad I was rather begining to belive that no one had read it besides Past :) And yes kicking of an adventure with such a blast is quite a challenge. However that's why he was rendered unconcius. I want him to have huge potential, but not be aware of it himself :)

Oh, and if anyone cares the story is continued as co writing project between me and Punisher SF another RP'er. Heck if it's any interrest we might be able to post it. :)

Laters!

Zed

I knew I should have posted my poems on Wensday

Well I'd written most of it on Tuesday in uni and when I went to finish it that day at home my laptop was broken, so don't worry, you were never getting in this newsround my friend. :wink:

Good news is I've got a wireless keyboard thing now so all those troubles above are over.
