Item:Bape Cow: Gaia Developer, Cashmere Cactus Edit

Posted: Thu Nov 29, 2007 9:20 pm

The Bape Cow is the unofficial mascot of the Gaia UI and Branding teams. He's an extremely poorly-made papier-mâché horsey-thing, stolen from a high school art classroom by Brunosmad's younger sister because of his supreme awfulness and tragic beauty. He was named Bape Cow because:

A) He is a quadruped, and if you squint really hard you might be able to imagine that he is a cow.
B) Bape.

He proudly sits on the wall dividing my cubicle from Brunosmad's, surveying his domain and warding off evil spirits (i.e. people who tell us to do work). Our lovely friend Juno agreed to create a Bape Cow item after we embarked on an intense campaign of constant badgering. We had to lend her the Bape Cow for a few days as reference so she could render it accurately, and although we knew he was in good hands, those were some of the loneliest and emptiest days of our lives. I'm pleased to report that as of today, Bape Cow has come home.

When Juno asked how he should be priced, I suggested 666 Gold, but we later raised it to 6,666 because the Bape Cow is a premium designer item.

We hope that you're all enjoying your Bape Cows as much as we enjoy ours!

Dragon and Kai (in heaven) Edit

During Earth day, we had a "bring your kids to work" event. All the kids got little earth worms in plastic cups, but me and ramoneguru were a little bit jealous. We asked nicely if we could have worms too, and the mad scientist lady gave us each a worm of our very own!

I named my worm "Dragon" because I'm convinced dragons fly with magic, and don't need wings - think Unicorns. Laine said they're like hot air balloons, and just glide with their wings. My worm was going to turn into a dragon.

ramoneguru named his worm "Kai" for reasons unknown.

Dragon died in two hours from (possible) heat stroke. I tried simulating rain and everything, it failed miserably. I am broken hearted :sad emote:.

Kai slept overnight at the office but escaped his plastic cup prison (which had a lid on it!?!?!?!?!?! the plastic container was somewhat like a condiment cup you get when you order take out and they give you sauces). We found a dirt trail which clearly shows that Kai exploded from his confines a la The Rock, and explored the many figurines of ramoneguru 's desk before dropping off the side and dying a terrible, dry death. We found him as a shriveled black twig looking thing covered in lint, poor sucker.

We think they were in love.

Sad times :sad emote:. See my profile for details.


P.S. Thanks for your support on Fremere's Guard :wink emote:. :heart emotes:

I named my worm "Kai" because I'm convinced dragons fly with gas, and use wings to navigate - think hot air ballon. Laine said the same thing and I agreed.

jenzee named his worm "Dragon" for reasons unknown.

Dragon died in two hours from (possible) heat stroke. Mine was free for a specific time before meeting his demise.

Kai slept overnight at the office but escaped his plastic cup prison (which had a lid on it!?!?!?!?!?! the plastic container was somewhat like a condiment cup you get when you order take out and they give you sauces). We found a dirt trail which clearly shows that Kai exploded from his confines a la The Rock, and explored the many figurines of ramoneguru 's desk before dropping off the side and dying a terrible, dry death.

Sad times . See my profile for details.

Note: I still have the dirt trail it left on my desk as a shrine to the worm's amazing thirst for adventure and freedom.

Did you know only 1 in 1200 Gaians wears underwear? I'm the expert. Since I'm short.

My favorite celebrity is Digiorno Lee! He is an actor with a sophisticated sense of subtlety and unequaled grace in his critically acclaimed films. My favorite is Sharkorilla 4 when he blows up the monsters with dynamite then kisses all those ladies!

Here is a picture of him that I drew.

Digiorno

He's so cool! I want to give it to him but I'm really nervous. I don't want to bite him. I bite when I'm excited.

Hey you guys should draw pictures too! And we can all give them to Digiorno together! If I think Digiorno would like your drawing I will give you this: Link.

Keep in mind I am very critical. I know art.

Okay then see you sometime!

Later!

See you around!

Did you know that a thread that goes off topic goes to chatterbox?

Bye!

Dog Warz: Cashmere CactusEdit

Greetfriends,

If you've ever laughed at something on Gaia, there's about a 55% chance it was the work of Josh B. (boxcarsocial), a very wonderful and talented writer who worked here from 2007 to late 2010. His career had many great highlights, including lots of amazing writing for events, almost getting us all fired for the "Get Fisted" banner ad and slipping the phrase "for all your lady-shavin' needs" into a sponsorship announcement for razors.

He was universally beloved for his deadpan humor, stoic facial expression, respect for dogs, fondness of cowboys and undisguised contempt for all of us. We miss him terribly (he's not dead, but he moved to Portland and we're all too lazy to visit him).

Josh was fond of annoying the artists by telling them to make nonsensical items. He often suggested strange EIs like "Gary's Island Adventure" and "Dark Chef," both of which I worked into an Evolving Item Report one time. But his favorite nonsense item request was always "Dog Warz," which was just a thought bubble above your avatar with two dogs fighting in it.

As a tribute to our lovely lost boy, legendary Gaia artist Juno has lovingly crafted Dog Warz, which you can get for free by clicking this link:

DOINK

Wear Dog Warz in good health, and think of Josh when you do. Be sure to share the above link with your friends, too.
