ActiveRain Cartoon Network: Say Hello to CyberMinions.net


The Mind Of Minion needs a virtual home to park some visual art. Here it is, our new Team Blog: CyberMinions.net. This venture in comic relief is brought to you by the ActiveRain Groups Club Chaos and the AR Cartoon Network. Mind you now, it wont be up and running for at least 24 hours because I have to finish the basic premise and populate that puppy with some original content. There are two posts over there, this being the third. By the time the Ladies of the Rain log in, who knows how many posts will be over there by the week end. :-)

Laraine and Michelle are the editors. You may want to let them know since I haven't told them yet (LMAO). Poor babies. They had no idea what they were getting into when I started playing in my sketchbook with Ms. Viggiano. You are really going to have to read the comment sections because the conversation is a hoot and the pages of my sketchbook are being embed there one response at a time. It's time to release another page (LOL). I've been delaying because I realized all that work is going to need a virtual home. We are going to be playing artistic games for a while so it's only fair to warn you we have plans for you... so consider yourself warned... ;-)

BTW, I do recall threatening to videoblog. I guess this puts me one step closer to that particular bit of mischief... Hmm... I may have to start filming those Skype par-tays you guys have been hearing about. Little Minion TV may also be moving in as well (LOL). Can't leave the PDD-NOS Autism shorties out. Step by Step and Global Play may be unofficially joining the group. I love intellectually drop dead gorgeous minds and would be remiss in my minion duties if I didn't high-jack Stella Yukhan and Susana Isakharova for interviews. Smart and funny gets me going every single time. Mangigly the I-talian once stated that people count on my misbehaving. Hmm... now there's a thought that needs to be explored in more depth (LMAO). We may have to do another sleep over at Susan Mangigian's house. She's a wonderful hostess and threw the best Skype par-tay I have ever attended with Sheldon Neal and Melody Botting. If I were to ever film one of those I would want Mangiggly live and hosting that puppy. Seriouly!!! (LOL)

Needless to say we have some very interesting playtime plans for the Summer regarding several anticipated events. I have a tremendous amount of digital film that needs editing and lots of new ideas brewing. The OBMR is turning into a quarterly magazine. Dung Fly Pie is about to become part of a real estate comic book created by the communal writing efforts of Laraine Shape, Michelle Viggiano, Toni Rae and Carolyn Tann-Starr. Contact Laraine directly if you want one of her limited edition Dung Fly Pie calendars. How cool are they? Very! I am watching my mailbox for one right now. I may have to frame it (LOL). I love their stuff...

I may be tapping other talent as we roll along. So many blogs, so much material ripe for illustration... I'm betting that as you have fun with us you'll come up with your own original content to spice up your outside blogs. There's more to real estate than writing market reports, people. We aim to prove even a market report can be full if illustrated improperly (that was not a typo - LMAO). ;-)

We may be expanding into other areas with a little help from our friends. Did I mention I like to draw? It's part of my eye candy addiction. You never know what you're going to get with me until I decide to do it. Sometimes, I even do what other people want. That's what makes being an artist who happens to sell real estate so much fun.

The Lovely Wife will have a very interesting collection along with Broker Bryant. First I have to finish the Jeanette Neerpat and Michelle Viggiano collections. Every writer gets their own theme... I am simply responding to a little blog banter. They certainly know how to keep me interested with the things they say. I bet the TLW/BB fans are dying to know what we're doing. You'll find out once we decide to show you and we will. Anticipation is a beautiful thing so there is a whole bunch that is going on that I simply am going to fail to mention at this time (LOL). :-)

I do have reasonable cause to believe that Toni and I will have a lot to illustrate over the coming months... I may also be begging Paul Slaybaugh and Andrew J Lenza to jump into the writing fray. When it comes to cartoons, I prefer drawing because its so much fun. Can I write? Sure, but do you really want me to? Think about it... I've been known for saying all kinds of stuff, am a bit quirky and soooooo easily amused (LOL).

It makes more sense for others to write. How could I not pick the brains of some of my fave writers? How can I not poke fun at life and real estate? It is almost time for me to go so I will do the Wordy C disclaimer on a follow-up post. For now, just remember we Ladies of the Rain are capable of producing just about anything we can imagine... BTW, we have very vivid imaginations... so be careful what you ask for because my counterparts and I may give it to you in spades.

Laraine gave me permission to start the Dung Fly Friday ball rolling with "Flyroid." Enjoy, but don't touch. Snagging pictures is a copyright violation and will trigger a serious Lenn Harley style response. We consider our work our virtual babies and will hunt down anyone who kidnaps or tries to exploit our virtual children. This is their home. They live here. Only we get to take them out to play in the merchandising and licensing arenas of our choice.

Everyone retains and reserves their own copyrights so if you need to contact the individual writers and artists regarding a work, please feel free to do so. :-)

Hey Carolyn I was on a long distance call from the other side of the world when you called and it was such a bad connection, I didn't dare leave it. I will call you tomorrow. Exciting plans that you have in store, no doubt.

Posted by Michelle Viggiano, healthyhomeaz (Four Winds Healthy Home Carpet & Air Duct Cleaning) over 11 years ago

Ok, I had a coherent comment... until I saw the cartoon at the bottom.  Now, I forgot the comment and I'm gonna have to clean diet coke off my monitor.  :)

LOL @ Michelle. I was wondering why your voice message didn't kick in. ;-)

LOL @ Jesse. I had the same reaction except I was choking on green tea (LMAO).
