IF: Invention


Here is my invention, the happiness machine. I tried making it with 3ds Max, but it looked retarded. I tried coloring/ shading this sketch, but it still looked retarded. So I decided to just put it up as is. I suppose a nod to Monsters, Inc. is deserved. I've always been a firm believer in Ayn Rand's theory that happiness comes from self achievement, pride, and self love. That must be the reason I'm such a miserable bastard all the time.

Hey- THIS made me happy- I won a "Blog of the Day" award for the previous post (my child-rearing advice.) For Sunday, November 26, 2006!
Blog Of The Day Awards Winner

OK. I can go to bed happy now!

Let me know when that thing hits the market.

Congrats on the Blog of the Day thing - if this invention of yours works, I'll vote for you to be blog of the freaking year.

Miserable bastard? Not all the time! *G* After all, you seemed pretty cheerful about the Blog of the Day award. Congratulations on that, btw. Or are you bucking for the Miserable Bastard Blog of the Day Award? Do they have one of those? If not, maybe they should. I bet there could be lots of nominees...

Gosh you won an award that I didn't know had been invented... well done.

I wrote a story about 20 years ago that your machine illustrates beautifully... I wonder if I can find it...

I like the simplicity of the drawing just as it is.

Tony LaRocca said...

Elena- Thanks!

Rayne said...

congrats on your award. Love your invention sketch. I Would like to suggest a slight change, if I may, even though no one asked and is horribly rude of me but...I'm going to do it anyway.
Perhaps we could change the hangman room into a room of chocolate and comic books?
Aravis I love the miserable bastard blog of the day award idea.

Tony LaRocca said...

I agree. Aravis, you should defiantly start a trend.

Tony LaRocca said...

Robin- You're not rude at all, but death is definitely something some people wish for. I promise you that the comic books are in the room with the money, and the chocolate is in the room with the nude woman. (I was once told by a female friend that chocolate is a substitute for sex. I tried to get her to tell me if that meant that a) I should keep her away to keep her wanting, or b) I should give it to her to get her in the mood. Sadly, she wouldn't elaborate.)

Choc substitute for sex? Ha ha...I guess it depends on how good (or not) the sex was!

i love this! I like all the door options, but instead of money, I'd have the inside of an eggshell.
