Topic Photoshop Alternative: Affinity Photo (Mac)
Posted 13 Sep 2016 08:53

Gimp. It's not a cheaper alternative, it's a free alternative.

I know, but I've never found Gimp especially easy to use so I was wondering if this might be better in that regard.

Cool. Thanks for the review. Have to see if they have NA pricing (ie. USD or, ideally, CAD). I know some people who might be interested.

2 - I don't understand what you wrote here.

I do, but I think he's wrong. He seems to think that there is short list made based on average score. My understanding was that the only requirement to be on the "short list" was to have 10 votes, not a particular score. Then again, I haven't entered a comp in a while so maybe I'm forgetting (just like I've forgotten how to make polls).

Topic What do you find harder?
Posted 13 Sep 2016 07:44

I am working on my first ever multipart story (probably be more of a novella than a novel in length but we shall see) and have been struggling with the second chapter (I won't be publishing any until I feel confident with the first 3 or 4 parts). The sex scene that comes later in the chapter is coming along fine but the rest of the chapter, the build-up and story, is proving difficult. Which led me to think this might be an interesting topic. What do you find harder to write, story or sex? For me, it tends to be the former. Once I get into the naughty bits, it seems to flow fairly well even if I then spend a lot of time tinkering to make sure the right body parts are in the right places at the right times. But story? Trying to fathom what people are doing and why and get that down on the page without resorting to long expository passages? Yeah, that's work.

What do you think?

EDIT: And, I seem to have forgotten how to create polls on Lush. The method I remember is from my other board.angry7

Congrats all! My attempt at an entry foundered and I moved on to other stories. Seeing the field I would have been up against, that was a good call. Some seriously good writers in there.

Topic Long Hair?
Posted 12 Sep 2016 10:15

I like long hair lady.

Here is what my assumption with the hair:

Long Hair -> Romantic,long foreplays, soothing effect of long hair on bare give me goosebumps

Short Hair > Tomboy type, likes quickie, BDSM, Hardcore

Shoulder Length -> Can be switch -Dom or slave.

And when you meet a woman whose hairstyle doesn't match up to your stereotypes?

Seriously, trying to guess a woman's personality based on her hairstyle sounds like a recipe for disaster to me. How about chatting her up and getting to know her to find out? Perhaps that long-haired woman that you think is "Romantic" actually wants to tie you up and have her way with you.

Topic top ten movies you can watch over and over
Posted 10 Sep 2016 12:34

Gojira (and its American version Godzilla, King of the Monsters)
Star Wars : A New Hope (and, really, the whole first trilogy)
Dracula (1931 version)
The Princess Bride
Monty Python's Life of Brian
Monty Python and the Holy Grail
King Kong (1932 version)
Batman (1966 and 1989)

And that's ten, since the last is two movies. These aren't in any particular order. My mood would dictate which one gets preference at any given time.

Posted 09 Sep 2016 12:45

I wish I was "sittin' on the dock of the bay" but I'm not so I'll sit on a bar stool and drink Beaver's Breath instead. Fill 'er up, Rump.

"Quebec Quaint" doesn't hold a candle to "Old Niagara" which is what we Canucks used to drink on New Year's Eve. So-called because that's our wine country and two glasses made you feel like you'd gone over the falls in a barrel but forgot the barrel. Though I think we mainly drank it because we couldn't remember the previous year after a few glasses.

Topic Are you religious and
Posted 09 Sep 2016 10:08

I'm religious in a manner of speaking, but not in a conventional way. I don't believe in a personal God or follow teachings of any particular tradition beyond the principles of UU'ism (which are more about how we live together than doctrine). Rather, I seek the beautiful, awesome, and wondrous in existence and make that my "ultimate reality". It's kind of, sort of, pantheism. What am I faithful to?

I am faithful to the idea that the questions are as important as the answers and that in life the journey matters as much as, or more than, the destination.

I am faithful to being curious about the universe and to learning more about it.

I am faithful to living in awe and wonder at the Cosmos that we live in and that gives us life.

I am faithful to the UU priniciples, esp. to respecting the inherent worth and dignity of every person and respecting the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.

Topic How do you feel about tragic/unhappy endings?
Posted 09 Sep 2016 10:00

"The ending doesn't have to be expected, but it should be inevitable."

I like this. I doesn't have be the ending people expect, but it has to make sense in the context of the story. Sad, happy, mixed isn't as important as making it fit the story and characters.

I'm setting out on my first multipart story right now (don't hold your breaths, I'm not going to post anything until at least 3 or 4 chapters are in the bag) and have no idea what the ending will be but I'm leaning to a bit bittersweet. Relationships ending but doors opening for new ones and that sort of thing.

Topic Did you use a condom the first time
Posted 08 Sep 2016 12:30

Until fairly recently, I've been a one woman man. Used them the first time and until we decided to try to get her pregnant then after we had our one since we didn't want more and it helps with my PE. With my visits to escorts, it's always safe on account of both parties.

Topic Prostitutes/Escorts
Posted 06 Sep 2016 17:44

I appear to have answered the poll at some point but not posted. A few years back, I started seeing escorts after realizing that finding an affair could cost as much as just paying to get laid. The sex was variable but mostly pretty good. Best sex? Nah, but pretty good sex which is more than i was getting at home. I've seen a number of different ladies and even had a fairly good relationship with one who shared some interests with me (she eventually got out and pursued more conventional work).

I stopped seeing them about a year ago for various reasons but I'm still active on a board for local escorts and their clients just to keep an eye on things in case I change my mind.

The character of April who appears in a number of my stories was inspired by my encounters with various professional ladies. She isn't based on any particular one, just the broader picture of their world that I got.

Say your sister in law was Olivia Wilde or Mila Kunis or Kat Dennings, ya know an absolutle knock out beauty, are you telling me you wouldn't at least be thinking about it? 'Cause in my eyes that's how beautiful her sister is. I'm not saying i'd ever do anything and I don't think she would either, but ya know.

Marrying my brother automatically knocks her down a few notches, believe me.evil4

Topic What are you driving?
Posted 06 Sep 2016 17:33

Thing is that I've put so much time and energy over the six years it took to restore that I hardly ever drive it. It's almost exclusively a show car. I'm currently restoring an XK140 but it's slow going. Even the used parts cost a fortune if I can find them.

Oo. Another classic Jaguar. You have fine taste in automobiles.

Jag parts being expensive? Never happens. 588-rolleyes
