Is it very bad that I *still* can't see his nostrils as not being his eyes?

I can't get my head round it. Despite the glasses.

Well you can hardly see his eyes. You have to imagine the really...

irony in motion said...

The really... what?

*suspense*

He's too scary if the nostrils are his eyes, and not really scary enough to threaten spiders if not. Maybe I'm imagining the spiders as braver than they are. Surely if they banded together they could take him out? Aw, now I'm imagining him all bundled up in that rubbish fake spiderweb you get in halloween packs and being carried off like Gulliver.
I should be on the side of Steve shouldn't I?

james henry said...

Oops, I meant 'you have to imagine them really...' 'Them' being his eyes.

I'm sort of watching Napoleon Dynamite at the moment, and the fact that I made glasses for a toy dinosaur in a webcomic has suddenly struck me with the force of a thousand heavy things.

So, the fact that you own a toy dinosaur in the first place didn't hit you in any way......

Like a slice of lemon wrapped around a brick?

Oh dear god, what am I doing with my life?

I was just thinking the same thing (what am I doing with my life?) while sneaking a look at toy fu for the second time today as work ennui sets in ... grass is always greener... yours seems a better use of time.

Sorry Fizzy, just got the Hitchhikers ref...

Someone (sorry, forgot who) said that toy-fu helped get them through a very dull science practical, so that made me feel good. I think everyone needs these little flashes of self-awareness from time to time, as it stops one disappearing entirely into a world of one's own creation. Although that's fun too....

i still firmly believe that his "nostrils" ARE his eyes, as that is what i have always seen them as, and i refuse to be convinced otherwise.

just as i am convinced that the following lyrics ARE in Meatloaf's 'Bat Out of Hell':

"i'm gonna hit the highway like a bat out of hell, like a Cilla Black fan on bike..."

it doesn't matter how many times someone tells me what the "real" lyrics are (which i can never remember anyway so they can't be the real words) i'll always be convinced that Meatloaf is singing about our Cilla.

belladona said...

Ah, yes. Just as I am convinced that the bloke out of Dexy's Midnight Runners (what was his name?) is actually singing 'Come on Eileen, oh I swear a baked bean'. He's clearly hungry.

It was me with the science practicals. A thousand thank yous (it made a nice change from the relentless renditions of 'So Long And Thanks For All The Fish' that played during most of the other exams).

james henry said...

Hey. No problem.

Maud said...

That's fizzy good as in make-feel better, I take it?

belladona said...

Bugger. Now I'm singing it too.

Mummy/Crit said...

Oh god, I'm now in some eye/nostril hell (it's probably not as bad as it sounds)...the first n eps of toy-fu, James, you shot from lower (?) making Steve's nostrils look like his eyes. The ep 'eyes' you shot from a totally different angle, which immediately made me wonder "hey, where'd Steve get those glasses?" So realised that I'd made the nostril/eye error and then I had to re read the previous ones. Now you've shot from something more like the first angle and nostrils look like eyes again, but not entirely... I quite like it, it makes him look weird enough to be guarding an absent princess from spiders. and what is his mate's name?
Crit

Fizzy good said...

Fizzy-good make-feel-nice, in fact. And it's quite alright James, I don't do original thought. And I'm much too late with this.

I thought they were his eyes as well actually.

i really really enjoy reading your blog and you're a genuinely funny guy. i'm sure if i ever watched green wing i'd find it hilarious. my friend has told me how great it is i just haven't been able to find time. i just wanted to say that toy-fu is rubbish. maybe it's trying to do the whole so unfunny it goes around full circle and hits funny on the other side. trouble is, humour doesn't really work like politics.
