stsparky AKA Sparky
People know stsparky's this guy. And people bug him about noses on his CG's. He wishes he was as cool as a flying pig. This entry is mainly here in response to this post. I'm sure someone else will have something constructive to say. He also likes to edit his wiki article a lot, tee-hee!
Sparky can't believe he designed games on PCs with only 7 colors. He recommends heavy drinking. If you do a search on 'Datamost' - you may find his real name. Only 3 games had any goodness to them. Though he achieved some cred with the Japanese for doing some cultural appropriate designs on a ported game. With some bitterness, he believes he came up with the concept for Lemmings. Ah well.
- Cohen's Tower - A Crazy Climber clone
- Super Rabbit - Frogger clone
- Mr. Robot - This one was odd and was likely unique or hid its pedigree
OMG - the title screen!
He earned the nickname "Sparky" from being a Tech Support Rep. It sort of goes with his real name well. First Sparky added the prefix "SM" and recieved some unusual offers. As it meant Santa Monica and not what the friendly people were thinking he switched to using St instead.
Oddly enough it seems Sparky has a harem of nubile Asian ladies at the tree fort the he and the wife call home. He wishes that one could do something constructive with them -- like take over Geneon or Live Door -- as they seem capable enough. He is a moderator of sorts at The MetaWeb: a wiki devoted to Neal Stephenson's writings which led him to writing an article explaining the origins of leet and led him to rediscover Megatokyo.
Sparky is up for these. If you get him drunk, he'll go on and on about once being an aquisitions editor for Kodansha. It was a Rodney Dangerfield-like experience.
He can display big hate for Reagan Youth and their ilk ... but seems civil in public. He'll guest blog at the PP Guru and do tests at Lost Zen Puppy. Seems he likes to give Xtians a hard time too. He's confused that many can't see that the whole story about the 'passion play' is pure myth.
Sparky and Mods:
Seems he ran afoul of Cracky yet once again. Ah well. All seems well nowadays ... Mooo ha ha! Cracky thinks Sparky is an aged temp worker. Kekeke. As one of the earliest fans watching unsubbed and undubbed animation, he remembers one SDCC when Osamu Tezuka bought various chapter heads of C/FO sushi dinner back in 1981. Vaguely remember the Kazuhiko Katō the Monkey Punch guy hovering around as well.
No Name Given
These days one anonymous mod is acting quite the cowardly PC ass by pulling Sparky's hot maid avatar and claiming it is NSFW after many months of being in play. As this happens only when he plays in Central's Monthly Desktop thread he doesn't have a clue as to how to proceed. Newer ruder avatars are being considered. Such as the below:
If you have any favorites - PM Sparky. He enjoys the girl in red though ... in the meantime, he photoshopped someone into a Miho in a swimsuit ready to play strip twister ...
Bill Murray and Hunter S. Thompson
Before many of the Mt fans were born - Sparky went to a pre-release screening of Where the Buffalo Roam; And ended up observing the ether snorting skills of Hunter S. Thompson after being really nerdy with Bill Murray. The duo and Sparky's group ended up at a Denny's afterwards for pie and coffee.
Neutralization of one "It's a trap!" Wallpaper
The "It's a trap!-meme" catchphrase is still used on 4chan, where it signifies that a supposed female posting pictures does, in fact, have a penis. Not that Sparky thinks there's anything wrong with dickgirls as a formidable one kept two pedo chickenhawks off him when he was a teen.
Anyone, without an agenda, can see that the excellent tush in the illustration belongs to a real girl on her way to womanhood. Sparky took the image into PhotoShop and built her a generous booby. Then stole a background from some lame LOTR pic.
So there you go. As a student of physiology - Sparky maintains the bottom as depicted on the original image was ALWAYS female. And he'll argue and win that even if the original artist wanted it to be a boy - he unintentionally portrayed a young woman's tush.
Anyone who wants to argue would have to show us his boney ass and be ridiculed by this community. Thanks to his sizable harem mentioned above - what women look like remains no mystery to Sparky.
Regarding the whole "adding noses" thing, Sparky says:
- “... I think this image is what honked people off at first - I was thinking of Leslie and Ralph from Liberty Meadows and thus added to the noses and lips a bit - I feel it allowed me to assert my individuality while playing with crayons. It's amazing how upset folks can get. It was the first Sparkyvision [CG] I think ...”
