a brief history of modifications to clock crew smilies
thats a really nice list and i like the information that is shown in it, yet:
WHO created all the ~2005 CC-themed (orange)clock-shaped emoticons?
all i know is that silver clock created the majority of our (recent and older) emoticons/forum-event awards...
he even created this:
I can't seem to find the thread, but this variation on was created because billiardball10 once sent a pm to another member asking them to buy furry doujins for him because they wouldn't ship to his address or something. being immortalized in this way isn't exactly an honor
yeah, i know the story well...
i wanted to get a cool doushinji comic, but the seller wasnt shipping to greece(only for USA), so i tried to ask from abbazabba clock to help me in a PM.
sadly, he didnt know the concept of ''private'' in the private message, and he decided to share all the info with everyone else. (AKA=he did it for the lolz)
with that beind said, i wasnt exactly a ''furry'', but rather a doushinji comic merchant. that is, i bought various comics, and i sold them to furries/to hentai lovers. it was a good business plan.
and to be fair, i like this emoticon. silver clock did a nice work with this one.
biologicalclock may soon be the first clock to hit retirement age. i hear he was in his 40s when he was involved with the clock crew prior to when i joined in 2005. especially by contrast, he was probably a lot more level-headed and mature than most of the people then hanging around here. seemed like a natural variation on
oh man, biological clock is certainly an interesting person.
i wonder, how old is he now? and does he still remember us?
insomniaclock was maybe one of the earliest flamboyantly gay clock crew members, and this smiley dates from an era, and time in many of our collective lives, when gay jokes seemed funnier
hmmm, i really believe that its not wrong to make cool gay jokes, as long as they respect the gay person, and as long as they are done with a good taste/with good intentions...
i personally hate the ''political correctness'' that is shoved down in our throats nowadays.
i mean, if we stop making jokes/friendly comedic shows about a [specific group], in order to ''protect it'', then its as if this [specific group] is UNABLE to understand humour, or to laugh/think/process anything correctly.
and thats WAY worse than making a (good-natured) joke about it:
because humour+art will be the first step into including a group with the rest of the world, imho.
hatred and bigotry should be stopped, but free thinking/quality humour/good-natured humour should be allowed.
i mean, i said a funny gay joke/pun to my (gay) cousin, and he liked it alot.
whats with all this ''political correct'' thing? its very stupid.
at some point we found a post on an internet forum about scooters or motorcycles where a poster was saying he used to call himself plumclock. in his honor, the zoom smiley, which originally depicted orangeclock like everyhing else, was recolored to depict plumclock
what is a zoom smiley?
and this is a cool scooter emoticon.
ah, i know this one. soup clock did it when he was a s(o)uper moderator (sic), and i think it resembled his animated sequence of rolling soup clock, either from the movie ''broken clocks'', or from his sig ''soup-clock: a drug against war''.
this has always been batteryclock don't know why but he was pretty over the clock crew by the time i got here
say, why did battery clock leave the CC? an old clock told me that he was a good person. is this true?
upon a return to the clock crew, tonymontanaclock continued to make "dodgerclock is fat" jokes; dodgerclock had not been seen in years and probably wasn't even that fat, but she was a girl so you know
aha, i see. thats very interesting.
i wonder, did anyone ever see dodger clock from an irl photo? if not, then how did the people of CC knew that she was fat?(unless it was a clever case of throw-a-random-shot-and-win...)
still, some older clocks told me that dodgerclock was a very unlikeable, annoying person. hmm.
