accountmadeforants: !kill some humans
accountmadeforants: :(
Didero: !kill genichiro
Saxpython: @accountmadeforants oh no! the loophole
beowuuf: good to know ahead of time, remove half the ball from the horse gifts
TehAmelie: !secret
LRRbot: That's my secret, I'm always telling Dale.
accountmadeforants: But yeah, it's just some specific commands
accountmadeforants: !vaseline or barcode
LRRbot: Barcode!
beowuuf: wow, top 5 anime betrayls by lrrbot
accountmadeforants: !vaselineorbarcodealloneword
LRRbot: Barcode!
accountmadeforants: Damn barcode
beowuuf: !findquote genichiro
LRRbot: Could not find any matching quotes.
beowuuf: see, no one cares about genichiro :p
beowuuf: the amount of variants on the vaseline / barcode commands is great
accountmadeforants: !spam
LRRbot: Today's spam counts: 0 hits, 0 repeat offenders, 0 bannings
beowuuf: lrrWOW i mean cool, but lrrWOW
accountmadeforants: !wprandom
Metric_Furlong: I was a bit worried that 'earth tones' would be a bit weak, but seeing the results come in looks like that may have been unfounded
beowuuf: chat is whimsical and diverse
accountmadeforants: Oh, and while we're at it, one of my favourite long commands:
beowuuf: !next
LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: Can't Draw Horses Club (Join Cori and a rotating cast of guests as they draw horses and stuff (Horses not Guaranteed).) at Mon 01:00 PM PDT (2s from now).
accountmadeforants: !play cruel angel's thesis
LRRbot: No.
beowuuf: darn
beowuuf: and lol
Metric_Furlong: sad_trombone.wav
accountmadeforants: !upweagle
LRRbot: Nope.
beowuuf: !play desposito
beowuuf: also lol
beowuuf: !updog
LRRbot: Not much. What's up with you, dog? lrrSPOT
beowuuf: :D
corianderd: My guest has not appeared yet. Gonna give them 5
accountmadeforants: !saveallgnomes
LRRbot: *Looks down and whispers*... No
beowuuf: ok cori, we're amusing ourselve with chat commands, so it's all good :p
Saxpython: !cori
corianderd: technical something something
Metric_Furlong: I'll put the poll link out one last time, then probably wrap it up when stream goes live
Saxpython: for some sick beats
beowuuf: we *do* like to party
beowuuf: !carrot
accountmadeforants: @corianderd
beowuuf: LOL, i was worried, but it's just a mod-only command
Juliamon: sneak peek behind-the-scenes in LRRbot: I think this is the response with the most associated commands
beowuuf: wow, neat
accountmadeforants: That's a delightfully early-Windows-looking interface
Juliamon: it's... very bare bones
Didero: !explain recogniser
LRRbot: The Card Recognizer program that LRR is using is a customized version of Decked Builder Card Cam which is available for Mac, Windows, iOS and Android at and if you want to set up one for yourself check out the overlay code at
Didero: Nifty!
kusinohki: !next
LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: Can't Draw Horses Club (Join Cori and a rotating cast of guests as they draw horses and stuff (Horses not Guaranteed).) at Mon 01:00 PM PDT (3m ago).
beowuuf: it's weird to think that no one has cared about this for ages, and now will be able to care about it again :D
beowuuf: although RIP J.A.M.E.S o7
TXC2 returns from walk
Juliamon: And if you want to see the opposite, a single command with a *lot* of responses
TehAmelie: my favorite
TXC2: is anyone finding that firefox takes a LOOOONG time to start up these day, or is it just me? ;p
Didero: I've got FAR too many tabs open, and it doesn't feel slow to me
kusinohki: @TXC2 I've been having issues too for about 2 weeks now
Metric_Furlong: seemed fine for me?
beowuuf: sergeHi txc2, no idea, i've been inflicted with edge these days and haven't swapped over because it seemed weird and bloated now :(
beowuuf: i miss my esr version
TXC2: kusinohki yeah, it's been snice I update to the newest version, that was about 2 weeks ago
accountmadeforants: Timing it... nope, still takes two seconds, even though I've got about eleventy-billion tabs.
Juliamon: I still use Chrome because I value convenience over privacy and restart it regularly anyway
Didero: The only thing that feels slow is the address bar. I use keyword searches a lot, and if i press 'enter' too quickly, it'll say 'Address not found' instead of doing the search
CAKHost: Firefox seems fine to me, though I don't know if it has been updated...
accountmadeforants: Then again, I'm on nightly builds, so maybe that's just something they haven't fixed on the release builds yet.
CAKHost: Nope, it's up to date
TXC2: I'm on Version 92, it does not like that wikipedia is my home page let me tell ya :p
Juliamon: I can't imagine having more than, like, 10 permanent tabs
CAKHost: Well, it seems to take it a while to reload because Firefox has been trying to remember the last page I was on and if I left it on say Youtube, it does take a while to reload
accountmadeforants: @beowuuf Firefox is actually a lot less bloated nowadays, though that came at a great cost. Extensions are less capable now.
Metric_Furlong: Juliamon same
beowuuf: i like the favourites bar, let's me have a ton of stuff ready to go without to many tabs open :p
accountmadeforants: Honestly, I basically use tabs as bookmarks/to-dos.
TXC2: accountmadeforants yes, I do wonder if norton is the culprit
Metric_Furlong: heck, I seldom even have more than 5 open at any one point
corianderd: pfff too many tabs. sounds like a weird idea
PharaohBender27: I rarely have more than two or three tabs open, and usually have separate windows open. And then I close something thinking I'm closing a window only for it to turn out I closed multiple tabs :p
TXC2: Desert bus is when I have the most tabs open :p
TehAmelie: i've got right tabs open right now, seems a bit much
PharaohBender27: That scans.
accountmadeforants: Though I do hope Firefox ports over Chrome's implementation of Tab Groups. It's a lot cleaner than Firefox's old (and horribly slow/clunky) tiled groups, and anything extensions have to offer.
beowuuf: @beowuuf can't recall the last time i tried it, it also just looked horrible too, but maybe i had some residual extensions or something on my other machine. I'll wait for the browserr cycle to roll around again and force me to shift once more :p
Juliamon: Metric_Furlong Actually same, my current perma-tabs are email, twitter (for LRR notifs), my personal spreadsheet, and two game tabs
beowuuf: I have a bad habit of closing social tabs like twitter and email then clicking on the favourites folder to open them all up quickly :p
RandomTrivia: lrrSIG
PharaohBender27: lrrSIG !
beowuuf: lrrSIG lrrSIG lrrSIG

Didero: Time is moving at an accelerated rate!
TXC2: beowuuf I'm gonna guess Az is our guests today
Didero: Turns out it's just a mirror next to Cori
Juliamon: We have a scheduled guest that isn't Az
TehAmelie: on the other hand on my tables, countertops, horizontal surfaces in the bookshelves and everywhere else there's about 5 open books and 60 or so DVDs i'm meaning to watch
LRRTwitter: @loadingreadyrun> Can't Draw Horses Club is temporarily changing to Draw Birds Club with @apsalar and @_ashmackenzie đź“· ||
beowuuf: @TXC2 i thoguht ben said a different name, but might have been once you left or I might be misremmebering
TXC2: Juliamon damn :p
Metric_Furlong: poll is now closed
kusinohki: time is accelerated?? that means gravity is lower (I think?)
beowuuf: yay, we have friendo!
Didero: If you fall less fast per second, but secons are shorter, you're still falling at the same perceived speed
beowuuf: when life gives you horses, draw birdinade
Metric_Furlong: actual titles should be up on the answers doc, if anyone's curious (link here )
Metric_Furlong: (feel free to ask me about anything listed in blue)
beowuuf: i have no idea what ItaKiss is, but i voted for it cause the pun / name was cool :p
TXC2: here we GO!
beowuuf: horses!
Styxseus: o/
Didero: I love all these horse drawings
TehAmelie: greetings!
TXC2: Hello Cori and Ashley
Styxseus: Birbs!
PharaohBender27: Ahoy-hoy, lrrCORI !
beowuuf: sergeHi cori! hi ashley!
kusinohki: !birb
LRRbot: Peck your beak!
Saxpython: oh man, can we draw Pegasuses (pegasi?) it feels like an important loophole.
RandomTrivia: Hi Ashley! Welcome to Horse Club!
beowuuf: @Saxpython this is an excellent question
PharaohBender27: I'm glad I'm not the only one who says "Out East"
Didero: Never not be talking
beowuuf: it's called a presentation because each one is a gift
RandomTrivia: LUL
RandomTrivia: SMOOTH
Styxseus: :D
PharaohBender27: katesLol
beowuuf: ok
TXC2: bawk
beowuuf: you have my attention
Didero: check these chicks out
RandomTrivia: all the chimken
Saxpython: FBtouchdown FBtouchdown FBtouchdown
Juliamon: There are just so many birds
TXC2: gotta watch 'em all
RandomTrivia: I love so dearly the amount of effort that has gone into making all the presentations *look* like a student made them in a hurry
Juliamon: I like juncos!
Didero: Parasitic Jaeger? #BlameSerge
beowuuf: are these all destiny 2 weapons?
CAKHost: Parasitic Jaeger?
frnknstn: My Buddy Brant
kusinohki: any uber wingspan fans that knows the point value of all those birds?
PharaohBender27: I only know of Juncos and Barred Owls
beowuuf: hello birb friend!
NonjaBiru: They're good birds, Brant
RandomTrivia: D'awww!
beowuuf: sergeHi
TXC2: hello Ashley
Didero: Technical Difficulties Club
RandomTrivia: benginHi
Saxpython: oh man I want the Junco in JNCOs
TXC2: in Traana Kappa
beowuuf: we impressed!
TXC2: done....things
RandomTrivia: Oooooh
PharaohBender27: Nice!
Didero: That bird holding the scrolls in the pinned tweet is amazing
actio0618: ashmacAcornhype ashmacAcornhype ashmacAcornhype
Didero: Cori is already starting on step 1 of 'step 1: draw circles; step 2: draw the rest of the owl'
TXC2: illustration is functional ?
Styxseus: I feel like illustration is everything, but not like in a metaphorical sense
Styxseus: :D
Styxseus: Oh thats nice!
Didero: This stream is off to a flying start Kappa
beowuuf: warm up doubles as bird bodies :p
beowuuf: nm, just noticed you said that better didero :p
TehAmelie: there's a reason even famous comics artists usually work until they get carried out feet first. . .
TXC2: I like that there was a pallet there called new dark that was magentas :p
Didero: @beowuuf Sometimes I am doing the words thing kinda passable! :p thanks
Violentfrog: I had a poster of the bird section of the World Book Encyclopedia on my wall growing up. Loved all the little illustrations of beak types
beowuuf: @beowuuf :p
Juliamon: A good textured brush is hard to make and it's nice to have someone else do that work for you
Styxseus: For me its the paint-blending stuff with CSP, combined with that it works like Photoshop (except its affordable)
Styxseus: So I guess brush-settings
Mollylele: !horseguest
TXC2: Mollylele this is Ashley
Didero: pencils akimbo
Mollylele: wow a human powered chatbot, cool, thanks :D
Styxseus: For a sec there, I mistook that as "I want to draw with one pen/brush in each hand" :D
beowuuf: np *beep*
Didero: I should go to sleep earlier too, but it's hard when there are interesting streams happening like Draw Bird Club
beowuuf: the ancient conflict :(
Didero: People shapes are limited, while there are so many very different birds
TXC2: I find going to bed earlier makes me wake up earlier, and I can't be having that nonsense :p
TehAmelie: but imagine. . .a bird person
beowuuf: the only good thing about waking up early is having time to watch an lrr vod of something that happened while you were asleep :p
Didero: @TXC2 That's all well and good during my vacation week, but I don't want to make the transition to waking up at office hours to be too harsh :p
PharaohBender27: @TXC2 Problem for me is I need to wake up earlier for work so I can finish my workday earlier :p
Mollylele: ah yes, birds: the horse of the skies.
RandomTrivia: Good insight Molly
RandomTrivia: :D
TXC2: for example: I recently learned horses have a body part called the frog :p
misskale: I have 2 parrots and I love how when they move you notice they are so much smaller than their feathers.
TehAmelie: making your own comics, the temptation is to write only nice things for yourself to draw. it helps to be equally bad at everything
RandomTrivia: @TXC2 Is it in their throat? :p
TXC2: RandomTrivia nope, it's in their foot
RandomTrivia: Awww, my joke...
RandomTrivia: :D
Didero: @TXC2 Do they use it to jump?
Styxseus: Your brain is not very reliable, as it turns out :P
TXC2: Didero no, it's for pumping blood back up their legs
TXC2: so I guess it does kinda help with jumping a bit :p
Didero: @TXC2 So what I'm learning is that people are bad at naming body parts?
Styxseus: It uses a lot of "shortcuts" to remember information easier/faster
TXC2: Didero people are bad at naming full stop. :p
Didero: @TXC2 I dunno, 'full stop' is a good name for what it is and represents Kappa
TXC2: :D
Violentfrog: i was always confused by girls noses in archie comics lol
Didero: oh no(se)
ContingentCat: wait noses aren't just > lrrBEEJ
beowuuf: how many times does my character have to smell anything? totally wasted effort
TXC2: !addquote (Ashley MacKenzie) [now] The tragedy of learning to draw anime is never learning to draw noses.
LRRbot: New quote #7792: "The tragedy of learning to draw anime is never learning to draw noses." —Ashley MacKenzie [2021-09-27]
RandomTrivia: LUL
RandomTrivia: sergeJustRight
beowuuf: sergeJustRight
RandomTrivia: lrrWOW
TehAmelie: another great thing about birds, no noses
LurkerSpine: nothing wrong with Inu Yasha
beowuuf: @TehAmelie how do they smell?
TehAmelie: like bird poo
TXC2: does Pokemon count as anime? :p
Didero: @TehAmelie Depends on if they bathed recently Kappa
ContingentCat: saame InuYasha was my first too
beowuuf: @TehAmelie fair :)
ContingentCat: oh yeah megabots
misskale: Belle and Sebastian was the one I saw but that was on Nickelodeon
LurkerSpine: I was ordering tapes off RightStuf etc
gizmofreak1: have you tried the new digimon card game? its so good.
Didero: Especially since human brains are very focussed on recognising human things, so it very easily looks 'off'
RandomTrivia: LUL
TXC2: HUGE Traps bro!
Styxseus: Yeah, usually with alot of skills its "You need to actually get good at the thing before you understand how to cheat" but with drawing humans, you almost need the "cheaty" version so you can start learning and filling in details
Didero: dude never skipped arm day
RandomTrivia: HAH
Styxseus: Because its so hard to even start building an understanding
niccus: how biblical?
TXC2: Angels have 6 limbs and are thusly insects, change my mind Kappa
Didero: @TXC2 That's easy: Angels don't exist
TXC2: Didero I wanted to make a baseball joke, But i forgot what city the Angles play for :p
beowuuf: @TXC2 all insects are just spiders that have been in tragic farming accidents
TehAmelie: i always think people should have bat wings, being mammals and all
beowuuf: @TXC2 the way teams trade around, just name a city and it will be correct sooner or later :p
Didero: @TXC2 Baseball is also fake! Hitting a ball with a stick and then running in a circle? Please
TXC2: beowuuf good point :p
PharaohBender27: @TXC2 Los Angeles?
ContingentCat: yeah it's a struggle
beowuuf: if i hit anything with a stick, running in circles seems ridiculous - run away in a straight line!
ContingentCat: peacocks also have a hard time staying up
Mollylele: There's a blue heron in Seattle that lurks on the penguin feedings at the zoo
ContingentCat: that big tail is so heavy, but the ladies like it so
TXC2: PharaohBender27 you're right, I thought that was too obvious and answer :p
Asimech: @TXC2 Isn't that the primarch for the Blood Angels? Kappa
TehAmelie: cormorants are the ones that both fly and dive about as well as you'd expect an underwater airplane, right
Mollylele: I have definitely been accosted by peacocks in Victoria
beowuuf: the herons and the cormorants in east side story
Styxseus: Oh boy, thats alot of sound :P
RandomTrivia: Oh god, Peacock screaming
ContingentCat: So loud katesLol
niccus: if birds look like they sound, how would they look
beowuuf: screams are bird for 'lookit!;
Juliamon: I suddenly appreciate only having to deal with screaming blue jays
TXC2: niccus like a marching band :p
ContingentCat: @beowuuf or "hey! wanna fuck?"
beowuuf: being born in a coastal town, the calming screech of seaguls each day was soothing.
beowuuf: @ContingentCat it's an elegant, minimalist language
Asimech: All bird screams are them going either "off my lawn" or "lemme smash".
ContingentCat: Loons are so great and distinctive
Asimech: With some exceptions for social birds in which case there's also "snacks found" and "it's the feds, run!"
beowuuf: @Asimech in my mind that last one is literally said like a human would say it
TehAmelie: and maybe "we lost 'em"
Asimech: @Asimech It would definitely be something I would teach a raven if given a chance.
TXC2: Canada has a lot of North, gotta be real specific
beowuuf: quoth the raven "on the floor!"
TehAmelie: looms are cool but european cuckoos are slightly spookier i think
Asimech: Ravens aren't cops, how dare you besmirch their name like that.
PharaohBender27: Yep, juncos are pretty small
LurkerSpine: hummingbird fights are insane
ContingentCat: Grackles are the worst corvids, they just yell and freak out about the cats.
beowuuf: @Asimech they just want everyone to do the dinosaur :p
LurkerSpine: I don't know how they don't like, immediately kill each other. Sounds like a war going on when they fight
RandomTrivia: LUL
Didero: We mainly get tits and robins in our garden. They're cute, but they also keep fighting with each other like they're in any way intimidating
Saxpython: so specific!
LurkerSpine: the BAP when they collide is so loud
beowuuf: O.O
RandomTrivia: D'awwwww
ContingentCat: My mom's garden is like 40% hummingbird friendly plants so they're happy each getting their own plant
Didero: "How dare you use this particular shade of grey when the real bird is CLEARLY 0.5% darker?"
ContingentCat: I love the little round ones
Saxpython: <3 <3 <3
RandomTrivia: I don't care which one it is, they're cute and I want one
RandomTrivia: :D
TehAmelie: lyre birds now, i don't understand how they manage to find each other to mate when their call is just imitating with uncanny accuracy any noises around them
ContingentCat: yeah that seems like an odd strategy
TehAmelie: hmm, a chainsaw? i should check out if it's another lyre bird
beowuuf: i hear something that's not a bird... must be time to mate!
RandomTrivia: @TehAmelie That just leads to -1 lyre birds
ContingentCat: maybe it's like why is that one bird making so many sounds?
Saxpython: omg
Styxseus: Do they mix sounds? I seem to recall hearing that, but it was a long time ago
dantedad222: stripLurk
niccus: i mean, people are hot for incomprehensible shit all the time
TXC2: Michael Winslow just drowning in that Lyre bird Cloaca Kappa
beowuuf: it's like darmok but for everyday sounds
TXC2: niccus like feet Kappa
beowuuf: @TXC2 thank you! could *not* remmeber his name for the life of me
beowuuf: @TXC2 also eww
TXC2: there it is :D
RandomTrivia: @TXC2 Will you stop saying cursed shit :D
Didero: "Cause of death?" "Drowned in bird cloaca, sir" "Oh no, not another one"
TehAmelie: they're like reverse platypuses
beowuuf: drowned due to too many, or just one big one?
ContingentCat: just focus on the fluffy bits, the underneth doesn't matter
Didero: @beowuuf I don't see how either is better than the other
Didero: Just draw a sitting bird, then their feathers cover their feetsies!
TehAmelie: i'm picturing a huge cloaca, the kind you could fall in when doing septic tank cleaning stuff to it
Asimech: @beowuuf I feel like with one big one it would be all over faster.
ContingentCat: the pink bit in the corner of human eyes is a leftover of us having one of those
beowuuf: @beowuuf oh we've long passed the point of getting out of this well, i just want some specificity :p
Didero: @beowuuf Oh, in that case it was too many big ones
TXC2: when I say bad stuff chat, you don't HAVE to make it worse you know :P
Styxseus: angles angles angles
beowuuf: you're right ,we don't *have* to :p
Didero: @TXC2 But neither do we have to make it better!
ContingentCat: typing with flipper hands would be tricky
Asimech: @TXC2 Not making things worse? I don't understand.
beowuuf: articulation!
Fanklok: That's a good birb
Styxseus: Its both very confusing and helpful
ContingentCat: or like 'great nailed that hand, oh no I have to do another?'
TehAmelie: the last time i drew a hand, i spent more time moving and rotating this one line i got right than drawing the rest of it
beowuuf: what do you mean i have to do one just a good, but also mirrored?
Fanklok: After like 3 fucked upo hands it turn into "how do I hide this so I don't have to draw it"
TXC2: m'ganzers
beowuuf: mah ganzers?
beowuuf: @TXC2 *tips fedora to cleaner joke*
Didero: m'ganzer *tips feather-a*
TXC2: !break
LRRbot: Remember chat, break time for the streamer means break time for YOU, so unclench, get up, stretch, walk about a bit, and maybe get a drink or go to the toilet if you need to. Don't forget to wash your hands!
ContingentCat: !advice
LRRbot: Don't lick the dead body.
Asimech: Pro strat for drawing hands: Mittens. Every character wears mittens.
ContingentCat: solid advice there
beowuuf: oh no, feathora
Didero: I should really go to bed, and this seems like a good point to sadly call it a night. Thanks for the fun and interesting stream, and see you all later!
TehAmelie: i developed this style where most hands are just blobby flippers unless quite close up
ContingentCat: g'night Didero
beowuuf: hide the hand with a text bubble, the bubble saying 'oh no, are you ok after that double hand amputation?'
beowuuf: night didero!
TXC2: so long Didero sleep well
Didero: Thanks :)
Asimech: @TehAmelie But that means drawing hands when they're close up. Therefore: mittens.
TehAmelie: i shan't compromise my characters' freedom of mobility
TehAmelie: you know, except for giving them flipper hands
beowuuf: that just grants them more mobility in water
Asimech: And mittens give them more comfort in cold weather.
Saxpython: FBtouchdown <3 FBtouchdown
TXC2: and we're back
beowuuf: wb
TehAmelie: aloha
RandomTrivia: Is a "bird draw-er" someone who draws birds, or a bird that draws? lrrBEEJ
TXC2: it's an iterative process
Asimech: @RandomTrivia It's where you store your bird pictures and books.
Alex_Frostfire: Why not both? A bird that draws birds.
TXC2: birds have CLAWS!
RandomTrivia: @Asimech Ah, of course!
Styxseus: Yeah, the I'm still learning alot, and what part of the body I'm worst at has shifted a bunch over this year
ContingentCat: cats? the beans are so good
Manwichcannon: I bet you could teach a pigeon to hold a pencil
RandomTrivia: lrrIAN
Styxseus: Ahhhh!
RandomTrivia: WOAH
ContingentCat: Hello Ian and Mushroom
vidStrickland: whooooa
Manwichcannon: nice shroom
TXC2: that's a big mushroom
TehAmelie: if Rob Liefeld can get away with drawing like one foot a year in a decades long career of drawing professional comic books
PharaohBender27: katesWot
Styxseus: It's so pretty! :D
ContingentCat: congradulations
beowuuf: @TehAmelie exactly!
ContingentCat: you're a mushroom granma
TehAmelie: aah, fresh fungus babies
RandomTrivia: Apparently the foot-less bird is a martlet, which is a thing from english heraldry
LurkerSpine: ^
Asimech: @ContingentCat Hagrid voice: "You're a mushroom, grandma!"
Manwichcannon: mushrooms sautéed with some butter is excellent
RandomTrivia: There is also the Huma, a bird from Iranian mythology which is said never to land but doesn't lack feet
TXC2: 2 gallons? lightweights Kappa
PharaohBender27: Yep, that's why I don't care for mushrooms
Manwichcannon: mushrooms get slimy when stored for too long but they arent like that fresh
Saxpython: @Cori, that's exactly what my wife says. it was the Campbell's Cream of Mushroom
TehAmelie: small white mushrooms saturated with thick broth, weirdly delicious snack
Manwichcannon: gross
ContingentCat: ew
ContingentCat: why
Mai_Andra: I hated peppercorns... I refused to accept salami sandwich meat because of gross surprises when I bit into it.
Brozard: Can't say I've heard of a mushroom you want to intentionally eat because it's slimy, you learn something new everyday
Manwichcannon: I see
Asimech: @ContingentCat For the good feels you get aftewards b/c you don't have to experience the slime anymore?
TXC2: nanako
LurkerSpine: beautiful name for slimy mushrooms
Styxseus: Huh, weird mushrooms
ContingentCat: nanako more like No-nako
Styxseus: An acquired taste?
TehAmelie: mushrooms trick you into thinking they're basically plants, with their no moving around or having faces and all that. but they're so much weirder
PharaohBender27: I think lrrCORI 's junco is coming along very nicely :)
TXC2: wait you get regret only After? :p
LurkerSpine: is that the bird mom one?
Manwichcannon: Humans don't have enough skin flaps to make feathers useful unfortunately. also our bones are too heavy
TXC2: yes its the Anna Paquine become a mom to a bunch of swans, had to see in the cinema with my mum :p
Asimech: @Manwichcannon Sounds like a case of too many bones.
TehAmelie: but comedy is in your bones. think of all the laughing stock you can make
RandomTrivia: So there's this thing called the Rocket Equation... :D
vidStrickland: I read a short story once about someone who had their bones hollowed out to be turned into a living musical instrument. Sci-fi/horror via rich people.
LordZarano: How do birds make blood?
TXC2: something something square/cube law
RandomTrivia: Today on "Cursed Draw Birds Club"
TXC2: LordZarano other organs do it
beowuuf: we knew the risks...
TXC2: did we?
TehAmelie: @LordZarano it's a safe bet the cloaca is involved
LordZarano: Oh no!
beowuuf: @TXC2 oh, maybe i ate the small print leaflet in dispair rather than pass it around, sorry.
TehAmelie: they ARE one level further removed from the sea than we are
TXC2: turns out birds do have bone marrow
RandomTrivia: Clearly, they're not all the same width, some of them are marrower lrrBEEJ
Manwichcannon: gotta put something in your bones
TXC2: "the bone thing connected to the sack thing"
LordZarano: Air sack?!?
TehAmelie: clearly the marrow needs to be aerosolized
Manwichcannon: I like to think of bird bones like a three musketeers bar, they have bubbles and I don't want to eat one
Asimech: @TehAmelie Well now I'm just imagining an animal that sprays its marrow to deter predators. Or to marinate prey.
LadyManticore12: What a beautiful bird!
Asimech: I mean, if you want some umami, why not use your own marrow?
beowuuf: is that what a creeper is doing in minecraft? blowing up to spray it's bone marrow everywhere as a determent?
Manwichcannon: they are nasty for sure
beowuuf: *its *deterrent
TXC2: Creeper is more like a sea cucumber, but more
Fanklok: Like a somehat dense meringue
vidStrickland: mmm, nougat
Asimech: Based on photos 3 Musketeers' insides remind me of sprayed insulation foam.
LurkerSpine: It's mousse
Manwichcannon: Yeah not good mousse
LordZarano: 3 Musketeers is called Milky Way in the UK
LurkerSpine: @LordZarano what are Milky Ways called?
Manwichcannon: Nah milky way and three musketeers are just different candy bars
LordZarano: @lurkerspine Mars bats
LordZarano: *bars
Manwichcannon: we have both in the US and they are similar
TXC2: Right chat I'm off
beowuuf: night txc2
TXC2: Goodnight everybody, and thanks for streaming Cori and Ashley
RandomTrivia: Goodnight TXC2!
ContingentCat: g'night TXC2
Mollylele: 2020ByeGuys dream of birds
LurkerSpine: @LordZarano Ah, so that's what Mars Bar is... I wonder why the name change over here
beowuuf: I mean it's hard to say without knowing the US variants, but our UK mars bar is like a peanutless snickers bar (ish) and a milky way is a creamier, far softer mars bar
ContingentCat: ddeceptive bird
beowuuf: I suspect they don't directly relate, and are just 'similar'
LordZarano: Snickers = nuts, nought, caramel, chocolate. Mars bar = nought, caramel, chocolate. Milky Way = soft nought, chocolate
beowuuf: just like smarties here are compeltely not like smarties across the pond
Mollylele: I been reading Crow Planet this week so this is a fortuitous drawing of horses today
Manwichcannon: US milky way bars are chocolate mousse with caramel on top
beowuuf: @LordZarano yup, but the nought is far harder in a mars and snickers (and similar in consistency) while the milky way is far, far lighter and softer. The bar also tends to be flatter and less wide too.
LordZarano: nougat, not nought
ContingentCat: oh no
Styxseus: Oh no
RandomTrivia: Oh dear
beowuuf: lol, i made the same error too, must be tired
beowuuf: O.O
ContingentCat: girlbossing too close to the sun
RandomTrivia: AHHHHHHH
RandomTrivia: nope nope nope nope nope
Mollylele: is this vore?
Manwichcannon: Pelican be like "Watch me fit this whole thing in my mouth"
beowuuf: pelican't
beowuuf: or pelishouldn't
ContingentCat: pelishan't
Mollylele: pelic'mon
Asimech: "You pelican't deal with this." @beowuuf
LordZarano: Also looking at a US "Milky Way" wrapper, the green text makes it look mouldy
TehAmelie: pelicans use the phrase "are you a pelican or pelican't" roughly 6000 times a day to dare each other to eat weird junk
Manwichcannon: Pelicould if it were able to use tools
Styxseus: So.. evolutionary trait: The important thing is to just gobble things down quickly and get out, whether they actually fit or are digestible can be sorted out later? :P
Asimech: Peligonna.
Manwichcannon: Peligon
ContingentCat: digesting is a problem for future birb
Asimech: Also if it kills you then the urge to eat stuff like that dies with you.
Asimech: (Unless it's a sudden, new thing, in which case your whole species might have the urge and you're effed.)
PharaohBender27: @beowuuf @Asimech Reminds me of an Ernest and Frank comic I saw as a child that had a happy pelican labeled "Pelican," a worried-looking pelican labeled "Pelican't," and an angry one labeled "Peliwon't."
beowuuf: @PharaohBender27 :)
LurkerSpine: Miyazaki used the movement of the eels as they were being prepared at the fish market as part of the inspiration behind the dragon's movement in spirited away
Asimech: @PharaohBender27 That's good.
SquareDotCube: cthubirb
ContingentCat: maybe the middle bit is good?
Fanklok: Isn't ever bit of starfish anatomy fesigned to be 'don't eat me"
strebenherz: Stare too long at cthubird and it takes a cthupoop on your car
Manwichcannon: They can regenerate alot of their bodies so i imagine they are quite squishy
Asimech: @strebenherz Oh no. Cthupoops are impossible to get off! Well, without ElderOff™ detergent.
Steelwolf171: They also contain high levels of silica, meaning chewing on one would probably be very close to eating glass
ContingentCat: the point of no return is pretty quick
Styxseus: Cant stop, wont stop!
strebenherz: googling "do seagulls eat starfish" leads to a lot of.. "seagull why are you doing this to yourself" images
TehAmelie: horses can't!
ContingentCat: can't or won't?
TehAmelie: maybe the starfish are trying to evolve into seagulls
Steelwolf171: Because seagulls are rock chewing levels of stupid
beowuuf: @Fanklok i was beginning to be worried cthulian horror wouldn't be drawn today whew
strebenherz: @Asimech What about ElderOff™ Bleach?
TehAmelie: horses can't even belch. it's amazing they've lived long enough for us to try drawing them
Styxseus: Uhhh
Asimech: @Asimech Sure, but you have to clean it up fast after applying it or your paint will come off with it.
SquareDotCube: what if seagull eats raccoon?
Styxseus: Ambition :P
strebenherz: So seagulls are aggressive ambitious garbage disposals
Styxseus: You'd think so :P
strebenherz: With a constant mindset of "everything I can fit into my beak is garbage"
LordZarano: All these pictures look like seagull-thulu
Asimech: @Asimech But definitely do not use HastuRemoval™. It works fine two times, but if you use it the third time you're in big trouble.
TehAmelie: the movie Annihilation is set on a coastal beach, yet there's no seagulls. probably symbolic
Styxseus: But at this point I can just imagine it stretching out into the shape of the swallowed object, like in a cartoon
ContingentCat: I've had a raccoon come in through the cat door and help themself to the cat food
strebenherz: @Styxseus You're... not far off from what I'm seeing on google
strebenherz: Seagulls why this
Styxseus: Hmm..
CAKHost: I just came back from a nap, is Cori's upper right birb munching on something or is it an Old God?
strebenherz: starfish or part old god, take your pick
ContingentCat: @CAKHost seagull trying to eat starfish
beowuuf: @CAKHost do not behold Cthulhubird
Asimech: I feel like "seagulls, why" is one of those questions you can ask endlessly.
Earthenone: my highschool mascot was a seagull, most honnest mascot for a highschool
CAKHost: Lol, thanks Chat! XD
PharaohBender27: "We'll harass the competition into giving up!"
beowuuf: CarcosAway does not remove the things you think it will remove
ContingentCat: are high school mascots supposed to be honest?
strebenherz: @Earthenone Mine was blue jays. To quote wikipedia "The blue jay is a noisy, bold, and aggressive passerine"
ContingentCat: same reasons as teens do?
strebenherz: I like seagulls as one though that seems... very accurate
Manwichcannon: Just now reading the wikipedia article for birds and they are weirder than I ever thought
Asimech: @beowuuf All of the Yellow Clean™ products are kinda suspect, to be honest.
strebenherz: @Manwichcannon anything in particular you have in mind?
RandomTrivia: LUL
ContingentCat: do the seagulls in Alberta fill the ecological niche of rats?
Manwichcannon: @Manwichcannon Just read it I cant even
beowuuf: @beowuuf Aww, but I liked the commercial with the King :(
strebenherz: Don't rats have standards?
Earthenone: its free AND you know it wont get eaten by a seagul
beowuuf: standardmousation
Styxseus: I've heard pigeons described as "flying rats"
SquareDotCube: Starlings?
Styxseus: But my mind always goes to bats
Manwichcannon: High school biology class does not spend enough time on birds
1 raiders from AdmiralMemo have joined!
AdmiralMemo: admira108Heart admira108Heart admira108Heart
Asimech: @beowuuf Yeah, though the first one I saw was fairly boring the second one was quite compelling. Haven't seen the third ad yet, it keeps getting pulled down for some reason.
RandomTrivia: Welcome raider(s)! lrrHEART

LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, I_knowThatGuy! (Today's storm count: 20)
TehAmelie: i imagine the seagulls just diving into garbage bins and stuffing everything the size of a toaster or smaller in their beaks. more like raccoons than rats i guess
Asimech: "Just birds, no horror here." That's a contradiction right there.
RandomTrivia: @TehAmelie *makes note for DnD*
AdmiralMemo: How's it going here? Currently, I am yelling at my past self, because I have a ton of duplicate files... some named with straight apostrophes ' and some named the exact same thing, but with curly apostrophes ’
Manwichcannon: @TehAmelie Raccoons are like smart though
AdmiralMemo: I want to yell at Past!Memo "PICK ONE AND STICK WITH IT!"
RandomTrivia: @AdmiralMemo Oh no
strebenherz: @AdmiralMemo Condolences, I hate going into my old files for the same reason
beowuuf: @beowuuf :D
Styxseus: @AdmiralMemo Oh no :D
Manwichcannon: It spits bars?
RandomTrivia: Or is it barred from every establishment?
RandomTrivia: :D
AdmiralMemo: On the plus side, in the process, I found my old LRRcon photos. :)
SquareDotCube: it escaped from jail
Asimech: @AdmiralMemo And that's why I don't use curly apostrophes. (This is a lie, I actually don't use it b/c I can't be bothered.)
beowuuf: belated hey memo!
Earthenone: find any footage with them memo? :P
RandomTrivia: @SquareDotCube Nah, that would be an un-barred Owl , not to be confused with the Dis-barred Owl, which is a fired lawyer :p
ContingentCat: the two genders, endangered and trash
RandomTrivia: Oh balls I missed the joke of being kicked out of the parliament benginFacepalm
AdmiralMemo: @Earthenone Just pictures of Seattle, the Space Needle, Card Kingdom, and my roommates... as well as a fantastic picture of Andrew.
TehAmelie: i guess they're barred in Pittsburgh at least
RandomTrivia: Wow
Asimech: @Earthenone That implies the existence of a non-fantastic picture of Andrew and I'm not sure that's possible.
Manwichcannon: Im now imaginnig a folder containing two files, one named "Curly Apostrophes", and another named "Normal Apostrophes"
AdmiralMemo: @Earthenone OK, to clarify, one that is fantastic even given the already high bar of Standard Andrew being fantastic.
Asimech: @Manwichcannon And now I'm imaginging two folders titled "straight apostrophes" and "gay apostrophes".
AdmiralMemo: So is ’ a gay apostrophe?
SquareDotCube: so would you say you're having an apostastrophe AdmiralMemo? Kappa
Mollylele: this is bi apostrophe erasure
Earthenone: '`'`'`'`'`'`'`'`'`'
Asimech: @AdmiralMemo Or ace, it sure ain't straight.
AdmiralMemo: @Mollylele Clearly ” would be a bi apostrophe. :D
Manwichcannon: ,'~',
Asimech: @Earthenone That might be too fantastic for this world. Are you sure it's allowed?
AdmiralMemo: @Earthenone I'll let Andrew release it if he chooses.
ContingentCat: hawks are more interested in going fast than sneak
Asimech: @Earthenone Good call.
SquareDotCube: peck you, maybe scratch
AdmiralMemo: Oh, I saw a hummingbird the other day. They'd been missing in the area for some time, and I'm glad to see them back.
AdmiralMemo: And then a butterfly attacked it and it flew away.
Manwichcannon: They know they cant fit a human in their mouth
Manwichcannon: unlike a pelican of course
Earthenone: my roommates cat was very interested in a hummingbird this weekend
AdmiralMemo: Have y'all seen the video of the pelican trying to eat a capybara and failing, and the capybara is just 100% unfazed?
Lord_Hydraos subscribed with Prime. They've subscribed for 28 months!
Lord_Hydraos: Clearly owls just spin their heads in circles all day long
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, Lord_Hydraos! (Today's storm count: 21)
TehAmelie: capybaras are like Nausicaä, they will make friends with any animals but they know sometimes they have to get chewed on at first
Asimech: @AdmiralMemo Is it this one?
Mollylele: not a lot of owls on the bird stream so far
AdmiralMemo: Yes
ContingentCat: @AdmiralMemo it's my headcannon the pelican is helping scratch an awkward spot on the capybera's back
Mollylele: when has a capybara NOT been unfazed by something? (sorry for the double negative)
AdmiralMemo: This is true.
TehAmelie: being chill is their natural defense, it protects them against like crocodiles, what else should they do
ContingentCat: that's a good use of double negative, english teachers who treat them as always wrong need to be stopped
AdmiralMemo: But what if... TRIPLE negative?
Asimech: Capybara are one of those animals which make my brain go "that can't be real" every time I see a photo of one. They just look too good and comfortable with themselves.
Manwichcannon: Double negatives aren't not not bad
Asimech: Like, you look at a capybara and you just know they've got their shit together.
ContingentCat: @AdmiralMemo if you can make it make sense go for it
Asimech: And there's no way that's true for anything real and living.
AdmiralMemo: When I went to Alaska, we visited the "Raptor Center" that cared for injured birds. One of the ones I saw was an owl that was like 2 or 3 inches tall.
ContingentCat: awww
RandomTrivia: benginLove
RandomTrivia: There's something about tiny owls that allows them to carry all the fury of a larger bird in a smaller package
TehAmelie: they literally do chill so hard crocodiles would rather snuggle with them than eat them. true power of friendship at work
ContingentCat: liker small dogs
ContingentCat: being full of rage
TehAmelie: eat or be eaten? nah, capybaras found another way
AdmiralMemo: I swear that chihuahuas are more furious at raging at things than say dobermans.
Mollylele: Capybaras are nature's only creature that can sit angrily
AdmiralMemo: Please do not electric the birds. They can get hurt.
ContingentCat: !findquote bird
LRRbot: Quote #6083: "One fewer birds in the world, excellent." —Cori [2019-05-25]
ContingentCat: oh no
TehAmelie: gasp
beowuuf: wb
Mollylele: what a shocking twist
beowuuf: #cantdrawhorsesclub
ContingentCat: #CantDrawHorsesClub camel case is helpful
Angnor33: But they have to go back and forth. Spin to long in one directio and it either unscrews and falls off, or gets locked down too tight.
aiamethyst: no baby arms...yet
rotarysorter: @ContingentCat never heard it called "camel case" but wow does that make perfect sense
beowuuf: i thought camel case left the first letter uncapitalised?
ContingentCat: Is it? I thought it was just capitalizing the words when the words are smooshed together, I guess you could consider the first capital the camel's head?
CAKHost: Is that Sekiro's Dad?!
Asimech: Either way is accepted, according to Wikipedia. To specify Wikipedia suggests "initial caps" (CamelCase) or dromedary case "camelCase).
frnknstn: In CamelCase (in programming) the first letter can be capital or not. Specifically in Pascal Case it has to be a capital.
Asimech: Other names are mentioned, but those are the ones I liked the most.
Riffz711: is that a commercial product to not get graphite/ink all of the hand you are writing with? I was never aware of it but being left handed that looks amazing.
KaleidoscopeMind: oh "dromedary case" is good
aiamethyst: would be cool to see a side by side of the old and new baby arms owl wizard to see how much you've improved
beowuuf: til :)
RandomTrivia: Ash's Owl is doing the "Is this..." meme and I love it
strebenherz: That reminds me of Alice in wonderland and the illustrations of the birds with human arms
strebenherz: or maybe just the one
strebenherz: Majestic
Asimech: "All you have to do is have a diet consisting mostly of live mice and be nocturnal and you too can join our cult- club."
KaleidoscopeMind: @RandomTrivia Is this a horse?
Asimech: @RandomTrivia [a horse] "Is this a [human]?"
Asimech: I can never think of that meme and not remember the time someone shared two related versions.
ContingentCat: clap clap clap clap clap
RandomTrivia applauds
Asimech: Where in one it's [woman without foundation.] "Is this [natural beauty]?" and in other it's [woman without makeup] "Is this [skin disease]?"
Asimech: B/c dear lord do those two reflect so many online comments I've seen.
hypocloriphorius: birb wizard
Asimech: Wizardiest birb, or birbiest wizard?
ContingentCat: yes
Omerfar16: is he an owl?
Omerfar16: six pack owl
RandomTrivia: Awww
Asimech: "Cats are so graceful." *cat flomps over on the floor like a sack of disappointed flour*
RandomTrivia: Are there publicly viewable pictures of said cat anywhere?
RandomTrivia: (here's your cue to plug those things :D )
ContingentCat: cats are basically the ideal use of social media
Asimech: I was trying to remember where I got "sack of disappointed flour" from and I've finally remembered it.
TehAmelie: in my headcanon, cats have started riffing on Miette memes themselves
strebenherz: You are entirely allowed to spam the internet with cute cat pics
TehAmelie: whee
Asimech: Somebody told a story of leaning down to put their cat on the floor expecting the cat at any point to roll over and put their feet under them. But the cat never did.
Asimech: So the cat ended up "flopping on the floor like a sack of disappointed flour".
Mollylele: birds of paradise?
RandomTrivia: Ash guest on AFK for Wingspan when? :p
Alex_Frostfire: Motmots?
ContingentCat: oh yeah that one with the dance

jaymorri87: I love this drawing!
Styxseus: The weirdest one I remember is that transforming owl from that one youtube video some time ago
KaleidoscopeMind: More of a board game
TehAmelie: sort of like Monopoly, but with a wide country instead of a town and birds instead of streets
RandomTrivia: UH
Styxseus: Depending on the size of the predator, it poses itself to look huge or tiny (So predators thing they are not enough food, or too much of a hassle to fight)
ContingentCat: sometimes they pay in the form of lawsuits
TehAmelie: and also birds instead of money
Mollylele: this makes me wanna play Aviary Attorney
beowuuf: clawsuit or cawsuit?
KaleidoscopeMind: is Aviary Attorney an Ace Attorney-Hatoful Boyfriend mashup?
MAPBoardgames: Who is today's guest?
TehAmelie: Hattoful Boyfriend: Law School?
beowuuf: ashley
Asimech: @Styxseus Apparently it's called Northern White Face Owl, I'm still looking for a good video though.
MAPBoardgames: "Hooo. shall not. pass!"
Styxseus: Right! @Asimech I remember it blowing my mind at the time :D
MAPBoardgames: Thanks beowuuf
TehAmelie: i want to believe Face Owl is an owl supertype
TehAmelie: natural enemies of the Heel Owls, probably
beowuuf: together with BA Owl and Hannibal Owl they survive as birds of fortune
beowuuf: HannibOwl, sorry, it was right there
TehAmelie: hehe
TehAmelie: the T in Mr T now stands for Talon
beowuuf: headcanon updated
Styxseus: @Asimech Thats the one! That might even be the same video.
RandomTrivia: Perfect
TehAmelie: with a high enough Performance score, you just grow arms
Asimech: @Asimech That's a cut from a longer video, where there's a longer preamble. All of the rest that show the transformations are also cuts from that same source, but most have the sounds replaced with dance music.
RandomTrivia: Sounds like Let's Nope :D
Asimech: @Asimech That is, all of the rest I was able to quickly find. Which a bit of a pity, b/c I was hoping for quick cuts between both transformations.
Fanklok: iTS TH mmO MADE BY aMAZON
