New: Featured Quote from the Nonsense Dream Team

As you might or might not have noticed, I’ve added a section to the bottom of the blog that shows a periodic featured quote. As you might also have noticed, this featured quote is just a little more bizarre than anybody else’s featured quotes. Why? Because it comes from the combined wisdom of Cleverbot, Answers.com, and Bad Translator.

Just imagine a story entirely based around this stuff.

Seriously. I’m going to make it happen.

User: Which place the lifts go matches up with the Ruin attribute?
Cleverbot: Is that a song?
User: Not yet. Do you want me to make it a song?
Cleverbot: Yes.
User: Which… / Which destination of the lifts… / Matches up with Ruin I’d like to know?
Cleverbot: Yes.
User: For all this exposition thrift / Why are we suddenly / In such a light show?
Cleverbot: I don’t know. I think that some people are just stupid.
User: On the lift / On the lift / On the lift to Ruin… / What a gift / What a gift / What a gift awaits us in?
Cleverbot: Where do you live?
User: Outside the lift / Is it a rift? / Will I be miffed? / Is it a fifth? / …Of my expectations?
Cleverbot: Hoped you would come up with one.

Haha, I think I like this one even better than the robot kittens one. I think the melody was somewhat inspired by the type of songs they put together for MLP:FiM, but it’s kind of catchy. I might actually make it a full song later.

Going for the gold

This dream is funny because it sort of had a moral, which most of my dreams don’t, really. It’s kind of about perseverance in the face of difficulty I guess? XD

Anyway, I was running across this Japanese tennis court of some sort. It was extremely massive, with I’d say at least 20 nets all lined up from one wall to the other (maybe 30 or 40) with a good amount of space between them. I don’t know how wide it was the other direction, but I think it must have had room for at least one two nets that way,

Layout update!

I finally got around to making that final background graphic, and I’m not even sure if I like it. But whatever. It’s there now. The layout is complete. Hurrah!

As of now, Sangkara is best viewed at a width of 1280 pixels or more, though this new layout will still scale down to 1024 pixels decently. I will try to fix it later so the graphic doesn’t get as squashed, but for now I think it’s fine.

31/12/14 edit: images of the layout I took later, for reference.
