Photo Contest – Prologue: A Sussian Sussurus

Okay. It’s been a long time coming, but I’m finally ready to post up some of the pictures from the photo contest.

Part of the reason it’s taken so long is pure option paralysis. People sent in more than a thousand pictures, and they were not mostly crap. In fact, they were mostly awesome.

That put me in a strange situation. I can’t post a thousand pictures up on my blog. Even fitting them into categories is too much for me.

Last time when I did the photo contest, there were a handful photos that didn’t fit into any particular category. So I did a Miscellaneous blog for them.

But this year, there were so many photos that a single miscellaneous blog couldn’t begin to fit them all. So instead, I’ve decided to start off the contest with a bunch of the photos that I liked, but that for one reason or another didn’t make the final cut.

Also, I decided to put them all to verse and include a sort of framing narrative. I can’t remember why exactly I decided to do that, but it seemed like a good idea at the time. Personally, I blame it on the fact that I’ve spent a lot of time reading Green Eggs and Ham to Oot lately.

The pictures aren’t as big as I’d like, but I had to do some resizing to make them all fit. Rest assured that you can click on any of them and embiggen to your heart’s content.

*     *     *

That Pat Rothfuss. That Pat Rothfuss.

Oh how he makes me want to cuss.

At first I liked him fairly well,

But he blew his deadline to hell.

His second book was much too late,

So now I hate him. Hate! Hate! Hate!

***

Would you read book number two?

Please do read it. Do! Do! Do!

.

.

.

.

.

You could read it in a tree.

.

.

.

.

.

You could read it with some tea.

.

.

.

***

.

.

I would not read it in a tree.

.

.

.

I would not read it with some tea.

I do not want to read that book

I will not take a single look.

.

.

.

***

.

.

.

Would you read it on a stone?

.

.

.

.

.

Would you read it all alone?

.

.

.

***

.

.

I will not read it on a stone.

.

.

.

.

I will not read it all alone.

.

.

.

.

.

I will not read it in a tree.

.

.

.

.

.

.

Or drinking some odd robot tea.

.

.

.

***

.

.

You could read it on your bike,

.

.

.

.

.

Or really anywhere you like:

.

.

.

.

Snug in bed with a green frog,

.

.

.

.

Right beside this rusty cog,

.

.

.

.

.

Doing art with a quill pen,

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

Or while you sit and do zazen.

.

.

.

.

***

I hate this book, do you not see?

I will not read it, let me be.

I will not read next to this tyke,

.

.

.

.

Or zenning out beside my bike.

.

.

.

.

.

I will not read it while I dance,

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

Or bookmarked by spongebob squarepants.

.

.

.

.

.

.

I will not read it in a tree,

.

.

.

.

.

Or sipping on some pleasant tea,

(With kindle Agatha Christie.)

.

.

.

.

I would not read The Wise Man’s Fear

If you threw in a keg of beer,

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

A good foot rub, and eight fresh pies,

.

.

.

.

.

.

Enlightenment with jumbo fries.

.

.

.

.

.

Not if you tossed me in the stocks,

.

.

.

.

.

.

Pressed me between heavy rocks,

.

.

.

.

.

Threatened me with a t-rex,

.

.

Not even if …

***

.

.

… book two has sex.

.

.

.

***

Say!

I rather think I like this book,

Now that I’ve stopped to take a look.

.

.

.

.

.

It’s good enough to read at sea,

.

.

.

.

Or upside-down, or in a tree.

.

.

.

.

.

I’ll read it when I’m far from home,

.

.

.

.

.

.

and lend it to my garden gnome.

.

.

.

.

.

I’ll gaze upon it while I harp.

.

.

.

.

.

.

I’ll take it with me when I larp.

.

.

.

.

.

.

I’ll raise this book up to the sky.

.

.

.

.

.

It belongs next to firefly!

.

.

.

.

.

To this fine author’s art I yield,

A man outstanding in his field.

.

.

.

*     *     *

Man. You have no idea how long that took. It was fun, but I’m never going to do it again.

Thanks to Valerie for helping with the layout of this one while I was busy with other things. Otherwise it would have taken me even longer to get it posted.

Now that this one is out of the way, we’ll have some other picture blogs before too long. As well as the continuation of the ComicCon Chronicle and other assorted geekery.

Later all,

pat

    In the title of the blog, did you mean to write Prologue instead of Prolouge or is it just something I don’t get??

      Typo…. There’s no spellcheck in the title field of the blog.

        If you’re using Firefox, go to about:config search for layout.spellcheckDefault and change it from a 1 to a 2.

        0 = Disable spell check
        1 = Spell check multi-line text areas (default)
        2 = Spell check multi-line text areas, and single-line form fields

        (You can also right click in a form field, and tell it to spell check that particular instance, but doesn’t change the default for next time.)

        • Posted August 23, 2011 at 3:39 AM | Permalink

          Thanks so much. That’s really helpful….

          (If I can figure out how to… um… config the default spellerthing….)

          Edit: I can’t find it. Where is it supposed to be?

            Go to the address bar where you’d normally type http://feliciaday.com and instead type just “about:config” without the quotation marks.

            I got a warning about voiding my warranty in my current version of firefox, which I found odd, but say okay to that and you’ll see a listing of all sorts of configuration settings both for the browser and for some addons.

            Scroll down in the list to the section for layout and double click on the layout.spellcheckDefault and change it from whatever it is (likely 1) to 2 as Club Neon describes above.

    Tonight has been a long and fruitless one for me; as I work on my current book, the words won’t come. I’ve been staring at the blank screen for a long time. I’m sure you’ve been there.

    Then I saw this link on my Facebook feed. You raised my spirits, made me laugh. Thanks so much. If the effort was worth it as long as you gave one person a good chuckle, then mission accomplished.

    It’s 11 am here in good old Germany, i am studying for my freekin electotechnics exam tomorrow and I just needed a break. So as usual i went to you blog to see if there was something to cheer me up. And if you had known it, Rothfuss Master of Story just knew i needed some cheer up. Thanks for the good laugh, I am looking forwart to further pictures and Con stories.
    By the way, I would even read your third book if it took 10 years to finish. I’d even travel to America if it wouldn’t be available over here.

        Ok, kidding kidding … mine is the one with the tree in the vine like thingie with all the greenery behind it. I wanted it to look like the tree was swinging from the vine.

        Wonder if I would have won something if I had added hands holding on and feet swinging out behind it, so you could really tell it was swinging from the vine. LOL

    Would I read Pat Rothfuss’ blog?
    At times it leaves me quite agog.
    All those photos to sift through
    Some might say long overdue.

    Would I read it in a tree?
    Would I read it with some tea?
    Of the second there is no doubt:
    An Englishman, I like my tea stout.

    As for up a tree:
    Well, hmm, let me see,
    When I read, I often chortle,
    Likely I’d fall, and find myself mortal.

    Today’s contest entries – what a fine bunch,
    Though they fell when it came to the crunch.
    I must say I was quite excited,
    When a lady’s naked skin was sighted.

    What wonders must wait in store,
    Photographs we will all adore.
    I hope Captain Joe will find a place,
    My Australian friend is simply ace.

    Would I read Pat Rothfuss’ blog?
    Why yes I would – it’s never a slog.
    To his fans Pat is committed,
    That’s why so many people submitted.

    • Oatmeal

        Posted August 16, 2011 at 5:02 AM | Permalink

        Thank you. It was fun to write.

        I’d ask Pat to not take “long overdue” too seriously. I was struggling to think of words that rhymed with “through”. For some reason, my mind was fixated on “mooooo” XD

    • Captain Joe
      Posted August 16, 2011 at 5:10 AM | Permalink

      Captain Joe did not submit.
      He feels like somewhat of a twit.
      I doubt my entry will be missed.
      Although seeing this post, I have reminisced…

      Would I have taken a photo in a tree?
      Would I have done it while drinking tea?
      No, I had something better planned.
      That likely would have gotten me banned.

      I would have shot it in my bed.
      Making sweet, sweet love to the book instead.
      But let it be known I am quite hairy.
      Thus my entry would have been scary.

      To Rothfuss I must say this:
      To stroke your beard would be bliss.
      Perhaps my photogenic prowess will again be shown
      Upon the release of Doors of Sto…wn.

      Damn. I had it right until the end there.

      Hmm. Is the third volume still titled Doors of Stone?

      • Taure
        Posted August 16, 2011 at 5:41 AM | Permalink

        Captain Joe, I think you’ve missed
        An opportunity you have dismissed.
        Your love for the books is plain to see
        In stroking Pat’s beard you have a degree.

        And yet, Joe, did you ever think,
        To combine your ideas and make us all blink.
        Would you have taken a photo in a tree?
        Would you have been photographed while drinking tea?

        Well, Joe, I do not understand,
        Why you reject these things out of hand.
        Let me paint you a picture and show,
        How things things can form one tableau.

        Your hairy buttocks, way up a tree,
        Do you thrust while sipping tea.
        Your object of love: Pat’s fine novel,
        Before your passion all fans must grovel.

        • Taure
          Posted August 16, 2011 at 5:42 AM | Permalink

          Bah. Should be “How these things can form one tableau”.

        • Captain Joe
          Posted August 16, 2011 at 5:53 AM | Permalink

          How did this so quickly descend,
          Into a discussion of my rear end?
          Taure, my good man, I would be remiss,
          To defile Pat’s amazing book in a manner such as this.

          I fear you do not see
          How difficult it would be
          To ravish this book while in a tree

          Could I do it in an Oak?
          What if something vital broke?
          Could I do it in an Elm?
          My performance would likely underwhelm.

          Now while I’m not averse
          To this rhyming verse…
          I have several papers I must slay.
          And so I bid you, sir, good day.

    I even read it on my horse,
    not when we’re going fast of course
    I read it when I walk the dog
    through wind and rain and snow and fog
    I read it when I do the hens
    not when I’m cleaning out their pens
    I read it here I read it there
    I even read it on the stair
    I tried to read it in the shower
    It dried out after an hour
    I tried to read it in the bath
    but that reduced the book by half

    Love the photos and the poem – as you can see you have inspired me! :=}}

    Nice to know that there are other Rothfuss fans here in IL (makes my job of converting everyone slightly easier!).

    Awesome blog.. My photo wasn’t featured so I’m hoping that means I’m going to be in one of the other categories rather than nothing at all ;) then again, my photo was awesome to take so that makes it all worth while :)

      Yeah, that’s my favorite, too. Even if the kindle isn’t as photogenic as the hardback, that picture more than makes up for it.

      I also really like the one with the girl sitting on the bench ‘all alone’.

      And three of those pictures are mine. I took the one ‘between heavy rocks’ and the book raised ‘up to the sky’, and that’s me in the tree ‘all alone’. There were ants that lived in that tree, and they weren’t very happy with me reading there…

    Hi,

    Normally I’d put this on a forum, but as we have no official forum for Killing Kings..

    You, Patrick Blackstone Copperfiled Rothfuss are Harry Dresden.

    I can prove this rigorously on glossy vellum.

    But seriously, if Harry Dresden decided to write fiction in his spare time, the chronicles of Kvothe would definitely be what he would write (see what I did there.. chronicles :) .

    This is a complinent, You is mad bastards.

    Man, how could the one with the sexy chick in bed possibly NOT win a price?
    Shame on you Patrick, shame on you. If you don’t give her a price she’ll never take a picture like that again. And all of us will lose then, won’t we??

    This definitely brightened my day. Great fun!

    Would it mean anything if I said I have a pretty good idea of how long that took and appreciate it even more, specifically the tech-exhaustion that proceeds such an undertaking.

    And I’m trying not to get caught laughing hysterically in the midst of this coffee shop.

    Thanks for sharing, Pat.

    I’m sitting in my dorm room right now reading this, and I’m fairly sure everyone thinks I’ve gone nuts. I’m giggling like mad.
    Plus, I still have that deep narrator’s voice from the Spanish trailer stuck in my head, so I keep hearing the lines of this in that voice.
    So. Awesome.

    Fabulous poetry, and the catch-rhyme with “zazen”is simply brilliant! Nothing more lovely than a rare word used with seamless scansion, and so appropriate to the image.

    I couldn’t help but notice that the woman in bed with the book is the same person as the woman having the tea party with the book and the little girl.. and shes married! If that book is not the girls father, this could be quite scandalous.

  57. Posted October 6, 2011 at 12:20 PM | Permalink

    I didn’t intend to mimic this post, but I read the Cat in the Hat to my best friend’s little boy last week and he’d start shouting the end of the rhyme scheme. Like the part where they “Sit! Sit! Sit! SIT!” he was shouting at the top of his lungs and jumping on the bed. The sheets flew everywhere.

    Not the most effective bedtime story.

    As a result, I researched some anapestic tetrameter and came up with this for writers and lovers of typewriters.

    Hope it lives up to your own enthusiasm.
