Feoras wrote:Indeed, I do. If you're interested, there are several open apartments for rent. They are technically free, provided you're willing to play host to any supernatural creatures who want to visit our plane. I suppose you could pay rent traditionally, but I can't guarantee that you won't be possessed or otherwise disturbed.

I have no problems with supernatural roommates! My spirit friends from college were always fun.

I'd love a open one. Preferably a high floor.

Just beyond time and outside reason
In a part of space where stars are legion
A tavern exists where drinks are pleasin'
The Bar on the Corner of Every Region

    Staffed by creatures of every sort
    A few of which are hardly there
    They'll drive you mad for want of sport
    And make you want to tear your hair

      It's all in fun, a harmless jape
      The best of service they will render
      You may run but never escape
      The wit of their chief bartender

A being built of jest and whim
Whose tongue is sharp and fast
Do not try to challenge him
You'll find yourself outclassed

    The rabbit known as Lake of Fur
    A living sweater of Angora
    Is she a him or is he a her?
    The pondering will never bore ya

      So if you're near and feeling thirsty
      He'll serve you beer, but feeling frisky
      May play a prank for at worst he
      Will slip poison in your whiskey

I'm not even a judge, you win.

Alright!

Creatures and other-things of the bar!

Tonight were going to have some music starting with a cool mellow track from Supertramp

Lake of Fur wrote:(We're sorta glad to see you, in a manner of speaking; did you bring us any souvenirs of your trip?)

Heh. I thought you were still trying to evict the crabs I brought back from my last trip.

(I refer, of course, to the bucket of Brachyura crabs, not the other kind. Minds out of the gutter, y'all.)

All the levels my friend.

*holds a keyring with many keys* Life has many doors Ed Boy. It's not so bad when you take the demons, tentacles, ghouls and ghosts out of the pictures.
And the indesicrable monsters that lurk in the deep, watery trenches of the sewers. That flop about, watching, waiting, for one misstep of any living creature to slip into its grasp, and rip it slowly, flesh from bone. And you'd think the bone would be safe, spared. No, no. Because then comes along some hound or rat to gnaw on it, getting every last sliver of raw meat off of it, and then pull it into some dark corner to save later, as their glowing red eyes watch and wait for their victim as well, many ways to die down there should you follow the stretched out paths of blood and sinew stretching to those very corners and pits of terror.

It's not too bad. Not too bad. *stares off at nothing in particular again.

I'm just priming the pump to encourage others to get to work penning their own poems for this weekend.

Yeah, well, if you don't want to come to the family reunion, then don't. There's no need to go cutting the relations out of all the family photos.

Alright ladies, gents, zers, and shims!

After much deliberation, and acute attention to detail, the first ever winner of Bartwork has been decided.

I would like to say that every piece is enjoyable in its own right, exhibiting various levels of skill and humor.

And without further ado, this week's winner is...

Zany Zanes- Your sketch showed a great level of detail, shading, and the fact they were washing a glass made it fit the theme of the contest.

Honorable Mention

Artist: Seltzer Boy: The Ruby Ranch Republic - Great color scheme, and attention to detail. I really enjoyed it!

Yay! Thank you.

I was just copying their flag as best I could with the materials on hand.

Oh no, not what i'm saying at all. I love them each as much as the other. Just a figure of speech. They are all family to me.

Well, don't forget to say hello George and Maurice, the ghosts who live in the dungeon subbasement.

For those of us coming in late (as usual), what's the these this week? Can George and Maurice enter too?

Bah! Quid Latine dictum sit, altum videtur ... dude.

Kabravosk wrote:Just a figure of speech. They are all family to me.

Like those used store display figures that you put around your dining room table and in your living room to fool passersby and potential burglars into thinking that you're always surrounded by family and friends? Good idea. Who knew manikins were so useful?

Songs you dont understand wrote:Sinong mga Filipino dito?

"Who are the Filipinos here?"

Many of the Bar residents use Google Translate to interact with our non-English speaking guests. It is a fun way to converse and respects their culture and language.

"Kids"? You were allowed to breed?--And you found someone of the opposite sex who agreed to this? I'm counting at least fourteen violations of the law and of good taste just in that one sentence. I sure hope that "drop off the kids" means "leave them there." Their only hope is to be adopted by a good samaritan who can afford a major-league therapist.

Not that I'm accusing you of being unfit parental material, you understand. I'm just speaking on behalf of all of us when I say ... Uh ... Look!--A giraffe! *runs away*

The shadow puts away a glass while listening and nearly drops it in surprise upon the winning announcement.

Thank you, it is an honor to have won. So, I'll be choosing next weeks winner and the theme? Alright, let me think a second.

The bartender ponders a bit searching for a suitable theme. They overhear several conversations suitable for ideas.

Hm...family? Nah...

Brocklandia wrote:Uh ... Look!--A giraffe! *runs away*

...giraffe...animals! Perfect!

The next theme for the Bartwork competition is animals!
