~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Roll Up Roll Up Roll Up~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

It's


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Jade and Cho's Dog and Pony Show~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

You may ask What is a Dog and Pony Show,
There are several descriptions We have found

# An elaborately staged activity, performance, presentation, or event designed to sway or convince people

# An elaborate act of bulls**t, generally used to distract attention away from the sheer uselessness of the actual project or act.

# Pretending to be something you're not or doing something that you want people to think is important when it really isn't.

# Or of course it could just be a Dog and Pony Show (A derisive term for a small circus)

The choice is yours.

Make of it what you will

What we are Aiming for is general Fun and Friviolity.

Brought to you by Jaderail, Inventor of the "Stupid Thread" in the Commons, now in it's 6th iteration and Chohole, who is just Chohole.

Normal Rules apply mostly, there may be some changes, if requested.

Prizes.

All winners will get a Lemonade stand from Music (details to follow)

Canary 3D is offering a copy of her "pretty Ponies" for the winners. http://www.daz3d.com/shop/pretty-ponies

    Now I have that song from Emerson, Lake & Palmer running thru my mind.
    Karn evil 9 - You tube song link.

    As for the gift certs, since it's for persons entering, and not the number of entrys, it shouldn't be so bad.
    We normally get about 10 entrants. If the gift cert is for $5, your only out $50.

    Anyways, thanks in advance.

    A Dog and Pony Show? That's what we call really lousy reenactments and living history events in this country. I've been to lots of those, much to my embarrassment. I don't think I'll go that route, though. This should be interesting...

    Nitehawk, you will notice that I very carefully didn't put a value on the GC's from me.

    GCs can be purchased form $1 upwards the whatever. Let's just say I was planning on whatever, but not naming what the whatever was

    We used to get very many more entrants in the past than we have had recently. and are trying to attract them back again. The more the merrier.

    Lord Ganthor I hear you and cringe. I know just what you mean. I've taken part in some real duff ones as well as some really great ones, and many more in between.

    Just a quick note - I saw this month's topic and thought my ponies would make a good prize...you do need to have DAZ Horse 2 for it to work (ToyPony is recommended, but if you just want to make colorful horses you can). If a winner doesn't have the horse, I'll sub something from my (tiny!) store. :)

    Nice way to start off the new year! Here are a few renders of the "LEMUNADE STAND" I will be donating to the winners. It has over a dozen seperate props to move around and play with. Hopefully it will all be .pp2 props for poser if I can keep Poser from crashing over and over here. If not, it will be in .obj format with textures. Each piece, reguardless, will open up in place either way and can then be moved where you want it.

    :-)

    HELPFULLY TRANSLATED FOR PEOPLE WITH HANGOVERS

    RCT-SPANKY quotes an old Bavarian saying that has nothing to do with Thomas Mann, it turns out, but an interesting reference to "Thelma and Louise":
    "Oh Mann, warum könnt ihr nicht einmal ein Thema wählen, das jeder versteht."
    IN ENGLISH:
    "Man's funny bone was eaten by a woman, that's for sure."

    ROBKELK offers a partial quote from the Official French DAZ User's Guide:
    "Compréhension est surfaite… "
    IN ENGLISH:
    "Understanding the Surfaces Tab ... [isn't nearly as hard as Parameters, so stop whining.]"

    CHOHOLE is obviously getting a little peeved and curses the guys in Olde Welsh:
    "Hwyl a chwerthin yw’r hyn yr ydym yma i . Pam does neb yn meddwl nad yw hyn mor."

    ENGLISH version cannot be posted according to DAZ Terms of Service, but according to Bing it has to do with the futility of sexually arousing codfish when you have no bucket. Warning sent to User Chohole.
