A surprisingly accurate portrayal of Inman… ;D

This is funny. Way to turn this website into high school. I am amused by the use of the Designologuers’ names. Not much to comment on in the way of traditional design, but there is a story of sorts unfolding here..

bearskinrug

Clever, gents! And funny!

inman

Hahaha, I’m a regular Renaissance Man, teaching history and math! Jeez, did I do something to piss people off? Lincoln, does my tie have ones and zeros on it?

Lincoln

good eyes Inman! I can barely even see them on my monitor.

inman

I didn’t have to see them, it’s my tie! ;D

fashionvictim

I gave you both a 4.0 for including me in your designologue. :D

2one2

i’m all over those rumors yo… passin notes in class faster than that gas commin out your ass. ( damn these stoopid chairs are so flatulent-friendly; its hard to pass it off when you just ripped one royally! )

tacosaurus

so now the note in the first one is aptly notes on Abraham Lincoln by lincoln himself. These sources are getting sighted left and right. Mary Todd was not so hot, but ole honest abe still got shot. By a gangmember. Tacosaurus adds.

Lincoln

taco, I appreciate that if I waste the time to put em in, you waste the time to recognize.

respect.

tacosaurus

I am the subliminally apt master focal distractor. Tacosaurus Sees.

bharper

lol, fashionvictim. i was hoping that if i pretended you were too good for me in the image, you might take me out in real life.. any chance?

RevDrLuv

You better slow yo roll fore’ you get beat down fool. Everyone knows fv is a one man kinda woman. And what you got that you don’t think a good reverend docta of love could already be given ten times over!!! I made a religion and a science out of this @#*!…

bharper

haha..

My Bad REVERAND.

my role is slowing, now its stopped.

LINCOLN :::

WHERE ARE YOU??

the Bell is about to ring and Mr. Inman is closing the door, get your butt over here.

Lincoln

always late for class

k, I did this one after my fellow conspirator got busted by Inman in no. 216: Music Graphics for getting a little too verbal about a subject he’s apparently very passionate about.

I’m posting a bit after the fact though, so I figured I better explain it

jeromius

ha ha ha - somehow I missed this log the first time around, glad to see it’s back - very cool concept here.

I’m actually making it one of my faves - I LIKE IT THAT MUCH.

Don’t be a fool, stay in school!

inman

Hahaha, man I loved that tie.

RevDrLuv

Did you smash a calculator for this?

Always with the little details… clever, clever

Lincoln

hell yeah I smashed a calculator. I’m rock n roll. but I couldn’t find anyone who’d part with a Ti-85, so I had to settle.

creighton

BAAAAAAM!

That’s all I have to say. This image roxors my boxors.

bharper

Damn Dinosaurs..

part of lincoln and i’s original plan was to expose physical objects of personal value from our highschool days.. so, these are actual drawings i did in highschool.

Lincoln

alright, look…I appreciate appreciation. fa reals but the 3rd image in this logue has an unneccesarily high rating. and what’s worse? Bharper responded so quickly that some, who might have given it a lowly rating, might pass it up. now, normally I wouldn’t care. I’d probably be glad. but my favorite image that I’ve done on this site, is no longer my highest rated. this malarkey is. injustice

come on ye haters, hate.

Lincoln

and B, I’m glad you brought the notebook sketching back into this. I was starting to get wrapped up in the high school drama. I will return with equal parts gossip and doodling.

inman

That really is a shame Lincoln. If only I had more hate to give. Hmm, that gets me thinking…the government gets to limit the number of people you love ie can marry (bear with me for the sake of the argument). Polygamy, that’s a no-go. There’s laws against it. God forbid you have “relations” with more than one person. Same deal for homosexual marriages (or lack thereof). But do they limit how much we can hate? WTF? I hate you all. Truly and deeply.

What have I always said? Oh right, “your design = poop.” ;D

inman

This is really funny stuff guys. I’m just hoping this is peer appreciation and not a pig party. I can handle disrespect but vigilante disrespect in disguise? I just don’t know… :D

The lack of visual carry-overs from image to image doesn’t bother me in the least here. The humor is spot on, from each of you. Takes me back to X-Country, F-Zero and sitting on the bus stop bench that was facing the wrong way, pointed at the bank instead of the street and demanding money under our breath. We knew the people had it, they had just come from a bank, duh.

Aarseth

Yea, I’ve got to hand it to you… This ’Logue is conceptually the strongest thing I’ve seen on this site in a while. The lack of visual continuity is more than made up by the conceptual continuity.

I gave Image #3 a 4… I love the composition, the method he used for writing his note (really brought me back), the cast of characters, and the fact that he smashed a calculator (I mean it’s not Stephan Sagmeister cutting himself open and bleeding everywhere, but it’s doing something a little unusual and completely appropriate for the art). First rate!

bedingfield

Somehow I missed this DSNLG the first time around, but wow, great concept and appropriate execution…

Class with Inman IS tough…I should know.

creatordesign

Wow. This is by far the most conceptually interesting designologue that I’ve seen in awhile. Great techniques on bringing back the highschool feeling.

Lincoln

AAAY!

Geez this image is nicely laid out. The subtle warmth of color and lighting as so perfect. I think that Wacom pen is fake (i.e. not originally in the photo), but I couldn’t find image anywhere, so it may be real…hmm.

All the little subtleties bring back so many memories from middle school days. The dum dums wrapper totally sets it on fire. Very nice touch (I dunno how many little scenes like that I used to draw in class with a friend of mine). And the Fonz sticker is a f’ing great lead-in to the image.

Of course, the story element to this whole DSLG is spectacular. Kinda takes the site’s most recent goings-on and creates a visual journal about it.

And I’m guessing you used Daniel’s camera for this (unless you got a new one).

inman

Ooh, ooh, N! N! I know this one!

Those illustrations are top (hat) Lincoln.

creighton

Also, I love that the kid in the hangman element is sayin’ “yeah”.

inman

No really, I know this one!

Lincoln

no way inman, that’s not fair.

inman

You’re telling me! Now I’ll never get to see it!

Lincoln

hey nerdartist. I guess I should say something in case you’re worried about me stalking you. I am, but its cool. All of my stalkees have said it was a pleasure. I have references if you need em.

creighton

To nerdartist:

Lincoln is very astute at stalking. His ability to camoflauge himself into his environment is that of a cameleon’s. Some say stalking is creepy. But for Lincoln, it’s a way of life. He’s one of the few that can drive past a stalkee’s house up to 23 times in a single hour. See if you can find that kind of dedication anywhere else. Lincoln’s really one of a kind.

Hey-to-the-bomp-to-the-bomp-a-lomp-a-lomp. Hey-to-the-ram-to-the-ram-a-lam-a-ding-dong. (per Deceptacon - RFA RMX off Tiga’s DJ Kicks CD.

I have no idea what I’m saying right now.

bharper

Looks like your out of the picture!

Lincoln

that’s great. I love all the text and concept. The clipped images are a bit clippy, but it’s nice to see a little bit of image carry-over for once in this logue.

bharper

my goal was to create physical items that illustrated my words like bullet points with visual illustration. i could have spent more time working on the clipping, but this sort of mock photo realism has been more our style for this dsnlg, not to mention, we’re highschoolers afterall.

bedingfield

Ha!…Inman and I are getting all kinds of press lately.

nerdartist

Dude, did you, like, steal my pen? Just so I would, like, talk to you? Oh my god, that is soooo junior high.

Lincoln, do I smell a prom-themed DSNLG coming on?

Lincoln

I would but I never went to the prom so I don’t know that I could fully explore the subject. on the other hand, I did see She’s All That. I found it had quite an emotionally charged, realistic portrayal of prom night, complete with spontaneous, choreographed dance numbers.

nerdartist

I didn’t go to the prom either… maybe that’s the topic ;)

bharper

Damn, am I getting played? I thought we were like pees in a pod, Nerdartist.

bearskinrug

I like this last turn, gents - Funny!

bharper

Thanks bearskinthug.

I heard you got married IRL.. Is it true? So did I.

OMG

jeromius

B - you’re married IRL?

bharper

Yup, jeromius, in real life. See for yourself:

www.bentriliquist.com/gallery/Wedding

It was a quick little ceremony… with few pictures…. but there it is…

RevDrLuv

Whoa, I think B might have you beat on creepiness now Lincoln…

RevDrLuv

No no not with the wedding, with the cat thing…

fashionvictim

…and check out that package!

fashionvictim

oh and inman, IRL=In real life, if I’m not mistaken.

RevDrLuv

Yeah, he has you beat on that too…

nerdartist

That is the cutest kitten EVER.

And congrats on the wedding!

bharper

did FV just complement my package?

I have a huge smile on my face at work now :)

Yea, sometimes i have a thing for walking around without too much clothes on… im weird like that.. i was about ten feet from my house.. and was only outside for a few minutes… i’m a weirdo sometimes i guess… whatever..

oh, and to answer your question inman, my kitty (Choti, hindi for small) was not allowed out at the time and i was giving her an outdoor tour.

waite, so inman is married IRL too?

inman

No, not yet, where’d you get that idea?

bharper

i think i read all these posts at once.. and got all confused.

inman

Ah yes, could see how that could be confused from the Rev talking to Lincoln over FV talking to you and me. She definitely noticed the package…of course so did I. I mean it’s out there in broad daylight!

Thank God we were spared the tighty-whiteys…

RevDrLuv

…or worse

bharper

there are certainly worse images on my site… even one of me in tub.

my gallery is a complete fucking mess right now. it was all organized for a few years and some how it got all corrupt and fucked up.. and i was only smart enough to preserve the images… what a mess..

fashionvictim

forget about the tub, what about the toilet shot? ewwwww.

that ruined the package shot.

bharper

OH FUCK..

FV, thanks for pointing that out. As I complain about my corrupt gallery, i totatly forgot that I had hidden some of these really bad ones, but that when i restored all these photos to the new gallery, i lost all the old galleries functionality.. basicly making all the hidden stuff visible..

man o man..

RevDrLuv

I understand who you were hiding them from, but the real question is who were you posting them for?!?!

On second thought forget that I asked…

I don’t wanna know!

bharper

well, however creepy you may try and make me out to be, its simply not the case.

its more of a friendly arrangement with my wife and i, where we take lots of photos of things… and when we are done we post them online..

afterwards.. we may realize some of them are less approrpriate and need to be hidden….

anyway.. you know how it goes..

Lincoln

with my last breath, I curse Inman!

I know what you’re thinking. did I have to have bird pornography two times in a row? yes, i did.

inman

Fresh Inman Sucks? No. FRESH INMAN MEATS. :D

Nice sig, by the way.

bharper

Thats HOT. Your work really impresses me lincoln. good stuff.

Lincoln

thanks harpy ;p (you know I couldn’t think of any other way to make fun of your name) sorry to you and anyone else who’s name was defamed in this logue. any relation to persons living or dead is purely coincidental. except for tacosaurus. he really does eat bookbags

jeromius

I love this logue. It really is my all-time favorite.

Man B, I missed all those posts about you gettin’ hitched - congrats man! Welcome to the wonderful world of servitude!

My only beef is that nowhere in this log have I been burned. Maybe I’m not cool enough to be named.

Rock on witch yo bad self.

bharper

Yes, that’s really me my senior year in highschool. Photograph taken during one of my many internal suspensions. And while I did go to the prom with A becca, it was not the one in the photo. I did sit behind the becca in the photo in homeroom from 7th grade through 12th.

The rest is History! Happy New Years!

anethon

hahah, lincoln log. Why are you protecting her identity?

bharper

Just seemed like the right thing to do.

inman

You guys need to do a follow up called Highschool Yearbook and solicit signatures from as many members of Designologue as possible. Don’t forget all those useless abbreviations that you’ll forget in the time it takes for the thing to get back from the printer.

inman

Forget soliciting the signatures and quotes—just make them up!

bharper

a new dsnlg called “Forged Notes; 100 phony quotes from your favorite designologuers with abrevriated names.”

enorath

This is my favorite DSNLG thus far.

I’m having flashbacks.
