Salutations, Ladies and Germs! This is the post where I feel all of you up.
To see how you feel about doing an EmCee. Click the link to see what it is. Everyone is welcome, no one turned away. Millions served. Lurkers included. No talent needed - I can personally vouch for that. You still have time to change your mind or lose interest - this is just a "putting out feelers" post.
I feel tingly and excited about this. I also feel slightly cool to the touch and squishy. Unless you hit the pelvic girdle or the elbow. Then I feel less squishy.

Yes, yes, and again yes!

Also, yes on the Emcee thing.

I wouldn't mind giving this a go. I was worried I would have to actually, like, draw stuff, but it seems I'm allowed to push pixels instead and that's something I've been known to do from time to time.

Why yes, that IS a copy of Photoshop in my pocket.

And I'm very, very happy to see you.

This is pretty neat. I'm in!

Sounds like fun!

I'm also so VERY happy to see you. So very happy.

I am excited to see another emcee, but still too chicken to take part. Maybe another time though!

I'd love to join, but do I need Photoshop? I have GIMP which I don't love and Paint.NET which I do love... will that suffice for the kind of image files being launched around? I'm excited.

Well, there's no talent, and then there's no talent.

If there's ever another MS Paint one, I'm totally down.

So glad to see this re-happening. I have no image editing skillz, or I'd love to take part, but I really enjoy just seeing the work.

Hugh- in the one I participated in, everybody used JPGs. I suspect that's usually the case.
posted by BoringPostcards 10 November | 12:50
Cool beans! Richat, don't be afraid, it's easy. If you wanted you could go first, that way there's nothing to match up to. Less pressure. Hugh Janus, you can use any image editing program you like (or have). I'll make it work.

I've tattooed all of your names on my arm, so none of you can change your minds.

Yeah, I lied about the part where you could change your minds...sorry.

I feel so close to you right now, iconomy!

I'm in!

They also serve who only sit back and appreciate the results.

I'm scared HOLD ME but I'm in.

Hugh, I don't have any of those fancy schmancy programs either, I use PSP 7.

One could argue that without the spectator, the art MIGHT NOT EVEN EXIST.

Of course, one would be foolish to do so.

Anyhoo, fuck it, ico, I'm in. If I could go first that would be wicked, for the first try...I have a photo of a piece that I did, that I can imagine expanding on. Weeee!

well, you know I'm in. IM IN UR EMCEE!!11!

I feel cheated. I came in here expecting to be felt up and what do I get? Nothing, that's what!
posted by dg 11 November | 06:08
Hi iconomy! I would like to sign up for this too.
posted by misteraitch 11 November | 06:46
dg, the way it works is you post in this thread, and then you get felt up later.

That's what I'm hoping, anyway.
posted by chrismear 11 November | 07:35
Yes, the feeling up will begin soon, possibly tomorrow! We're all going to meet in front of the giant pink bunny on that hillside in Italy.

This is going to be so amazing with this many people doing it!

Ooh. Can I, pleasemaybe? This is one of the things I've been clicking on wistfully for about a year, wishing it still existed.
posted by notquitemaryann 11 November | 12:39
Aren't there some EmCee's missing from that page?
I'm in, barring technical difficulties.
posted by ethylene 11 November | 12:49
I know I flaked whatever time I signed up for it (maybe the squared one? or paint?) but I would love to give this a real shot.

Ok! I will do this officially with a new post on Monday, but for right now the teams are:


filthy light thief

Hugh Janus

Yeah, three! This is going to be awesome. My email is in my profile, now it's time for deborah, richat and kronos to do the first panel. Read the directions here, but send to me instead of taz. Whee! Hopefully the order of the teams is ok with everyone; if not, please let me know. I haven't tattooed the lists on my bum yet, so there is still time to switch people around. Deborah, if you'd rather not go first, please let me know!
