31  Oh Snap *Updated! Now with 68% more Futurama Quotage* in Needlework: Completed Projects by whateverjames on: April 15, 2009 11:04:25 AM
So I have been at complete "work stoppage" due to a computer problem here at work. My supervisor's advise on what to do: "Did you bring anything to stitch"?

Hell yeah I did.

I was watching Futurama yesterday and this is my all time favorite delivery of a line in the show. The main character Fry gets told The fate of all that exists and ever will exists depends on him and he is the single most important person in the universe. I still laugh every time I see it because this is his reaction.

*UPDATE* I added part of the lead in line around it. I wanted to add the whole thing, about all that exists and ever will exist resting depending on Fry but it was too long. I think this was enough to get the whole serious statement/aloof reaction dynamic across though

And if you are so inclined the episode is "The Why of Fry" and this is about 6:20 in.

32  She says the sweetest things to me in Needlework: Completed Projects by whateverjames on: April 07, 2009 11:38:25 PM
So my fiancee, Winna, and I are in the middle of a conversation I can't really get into here but this is what she said to express her feelings on the subject:

It was so cool because as soon as she said it we both started laughing and we knew I was going to end up cross stitching it. I'm trying to work on a rather big piece at my blog but I could not get this out of my head.

Winna has been the inspiration for a number of my pieces mostly gifts that express my love and devotion to her. While the same can be said for this piece I think she was genuinely excited to be the one quoted, since I have a long list of to-do quotes that I think are stitch worthy and I liked this so much it made #1.

And as for the color scheme: black, blue, purple and red. Given the subject I thought colors reminiscent of bruises and spanking would be a good choice.

Whatever James: sensitive to chick stuff since 1980  Cheesy

Thanks for looking and hopefully laughing a little!

33  I try to get out but they keep dragging me back in in Needlework: Completed Projects by whateverjames on: April 01, 2009 12:05:08 PM
I try to get out but they keep dragging me back in.

I said I was not going to be able to post new projects for a while because I was going to work on a rather large project but here at work each team has a bulletin board that we decorate, post achievements, etc. This month someone decided that each team member would color a cut out egg for the board. Now there are some "crafty" ladies here. They were using (and sharing) eye liner, crayons they found in thier purses, etc. However I decided to protest as the only colors I had at my desk were a black ball point pen and a yellow highlighter.

I asked if I could stitch an easter egg and was told yes!!! It took about a day and yeah, its not my standard fare but its something I can show off at work.

On a side note there has been some discussion on other posts and personal blogs about stitching in public, especially by those of us who don't fit the "standard" ideo of someone you would see with an embroidery hoop or knitting needles. While I am known in my office as "the guy who stitches", it was really cool because word got out that I was doing this and I had a lot of people coming and asking to see it before it was done and comments about wishing they could do it, etc. Girls and guys alike. It was just a positive experience and totally worth the time away from my other project and stitching something "cute".

34  Boom. Roasted. (A Michael Scott Joint) in Needlework: Completed Projects by whateverjames on: February 27, 2009 05:09:56 PM
So I decided to start working on a HUGE project since things are so slow at work and I don't have unlimited access to porn the internet here. However I forgot my thread and couldn't start it on Wednesday like I had planned. So instead is a little something from The Office that Michael says to Merideth. I have gotten used to the shows humor but this one left me silent for a couple seconds before laughing out loud "I am so gonna stitch that".

I so did.

Sadly this is proabably my last post for a while. I have decided that instead of doing a lot of little projects such as these and my original "I'd Rather Be" series I am going to cross stitch something big for the California State Fair. I have to have it submitted by May something. I've never attempted this before so if you wanna watch someone attempt 20,468 stitches in about two months you can check it out at my blog.  Now if you'll excuse me I have to go think up something funny to win a picture of two Victorian people dancing.

35  Adam Sessler (G4TV) quote in Needlework: Completed Projects by whateverjames on: February 24, 2009 05:44:18 PM
So when I am not stitching, playing guitar, loving the ladies (my fiancee and two daughters) or otherwise super busy I enjoy playing video games.  And I love the cable network G4 and the show X-play.

One of the hosts of the show, Adam Sessler, recently gave a game a 5/5 rating and the innevitable flame war started and people started attacking his journalistic integrity. Adam also has a podcast called Sessler's Soapbox where he can say pretty much anything. After calling out many of the immature posters and stating thier actions are why he usually stays away from the boards (I agree, sadly there is no intelligent game-related conversation to be had there) he made this statement to all the people who post that kind of crap.

Personally I thought this should be applied to all boards where gaybashers, hate mongers, and the generally uninformed congregate. And then I realized this applies to real life too.  So I made a sign:

36  Futurama Quote/Valentine in Needlework: Completed Projects by whateverjames on: February 09, 2009 02:52:26 PM
Futurama is my favorite animated show and I really wanted to start doing a couple of my favorite quotes.  My favorite part of the show is Fry's never ending love for Leela so I thought for valentines I should do something he says to her. 

I already made my valentine a valentine (also posted on craftster) so I think this will be more of a daily reminder of what I like to think she keeps me around for   Wink

I was watching the episode where Leela (an orphan, btw) states that when she was growing up she just wanted parents to hold her, stroke her hair and tell her they loved her. This was Fry's response.

37  If this doesn't tell her how I feel, nothing will in Needlework: Completed Projects by whateverjames on: February 04, 2009 12:27:03 PM
So to everyone I know I am thier "Star Wars" friend and I really am one of THOSE Star Wars fans. My 3-year-old is named after a character and I have two Star Wars related tattoos.

But my fiancee is truly the love of my life. I sold most of my action figure collection to get her an engagement ring. I used my Star Wars encyclopedia to prove the name she wanted to give our baby is not related to Star Wars in any way and I don't even correct her sons when they mistakenly call a Snow Trooper a Clone Trooper and for me that's like trying to hold in a sneeze. I feel like I am gonna crack a rib.

So instead of trying to find a card with the right words in it I decided to make her a valentine that would be simple, with the most powerful and honest statement I could give her.

Plus once I came up with the idea for little lightsabers bent into hearts there was no going back!

38  Drink Mr. Pibb (Code Monkey Quote) in Needlework: Completed Projects by whateverjames on: January 07, 2009 05:46:27 PM
I was so sad to read that one of my favorite shows may not be renewed due to a less then stellar second seasons rating that I had to do something about it.

Being lazy and only partially motivated, a cross stitch of one of my favorite quotes was all I came up with  Wink

The show is Code Monkeys on G4 and the quote is from Black Steve.

39  Nerds Squared in Needlework: Completed Projects by whateverjames on: January 05, 2009 02:27:45 PM
I saw this on a shirt and thought it would be cool to have in my cubicle.

I thought I was picking a really dorky color combination (by choice) since I wear a lot of orange and blue but I have since been informed there is a pro football team with these colors so I guess the jocks win again  Roll Eyes

40  I'd Rather Be Watching Futurama in Needlework: Completed Projects by whateverjames on: January 01, 2009 06:22:10 PM
So, working New Year's Day isn't so bad. Yesterday was the last day for medicare enrollment so no one is calling today and that means...well, it means I read my book today.  But when I finished I was poking around a Futurama Wiki Site and decided I would bang this out in my last 45 minutes today because I really would rather be watching Futurama.
