Good ol' lung cancer by VCR-WOLFE Good ol' lung cancer by VCR-WOLFE
I STARTED LISTENING TO MY ELECTRO SWING PLAYLISTS AND EVERYTHING WENT SWIFTLY DOWNHILL OH NO.

Uhh I really wanna name this guy geuhthrthh but it's hard wow. I was looking at popular names in the 1920s and the name that stuck out to me most was Dorothy? Which is odd but Idek I really feel Dorothy fits them for some reason?

IDEK do you guys have any ideas for some good 20s soundin' names? Or do you like Dorothy like I do?


Dude's gotta name yo. Checkit.

why did I never fave this, I love it so much, and Dorothy is like the most awesome character ever hnnggg

ANYWHO. I really like this character, 20's style is awesome anyways (the clothes from that era are just amazing) and it's pretty cool to have a black and white character, you really get the whole 20's vibe with it.

This character is fucking radical by the way, I need my own 1920's retro cartoony character..

Also I never knew electro swing existed, I recognised caravan parks' rock it for me, but it seems like a frigging awesome music genre!!

Ahhh yeS MAKE TWENTY THEY'RE BETTER THAN POTATO CHIPSS.

Yess it's great if you love older music with that new spin. And done well! Caravan Palace and Parov Stelar are my favorite artists among that genre.

Aaaahhh this thing is too freakin' cool! Maybe it's the black and white / retro feel, but it reminds me a lot of another artist's interpretation of Horace Horsecollar, which I am totally smitten with.. [link]

Her stuff is decidedly darker than it was when I saw it last, but there are some deliciously weird gems in there.. it might be relevant to your interests (:

I guess I can understand why people like it, but I've always done pretty squeamish with dead things :P I've taken all kinds of photos of taxidermied animals like "these will be an awesome reference!" and then I squirrel them away in my hard drive because the dead glass eyes creep me out lol. *wimp*

Besides electro-swing playing from my Winamp playlist, I can hear it; that voice...
Dorothy? Jones? Tom? Chuck? Frank? Raymond? [link] (for every single pop. name for the 20's)

Whatever's your name, I can hear you loud and clearly-- speak 'up will 'ya?:
(old 'talkie' film roll playin'-- backstory in 3, 2... *BEEP*)

"'Ay, uh 20's, eh... gotta love those times. Other than that, I've gotta thing 'fer the 50's, too--
Venetian blinds 'luminating sweet, 'Velvet Tobacco' smoke while 'dem goons play 'dem sweet swing-jazz stuff, as we 'a layin' down in the bar at that shady streets down-town. Speakin' a swingin', so was our business, which was bloomin' with cold hard profit and mullah (though I hated 'tat word).

And uh, people 'toahwked' in this rather nifty 'New Joisey' accent, too. Gives youse guys that "I'm pretty laid-back, but I ain't takin' no sh** feelin'".

And while 'dem people worked their dirty hands off with their blood 'ta earn profit, we earned our profit from 'dem people with their blood in our hands. Yeah... Guns blazin' and takin' dem suckers down with style. We mean it, trench-coats and all.

Guess that's my twisted way 'a thankin' goons like 'dem 'fer a job well done. Personal calling card, I guess.
Now here I am, 'sittin in this... "Shady-De-Casa" down-town, smokin' my cigar away like my life.

Well...? Scramble! Story-time's over, kid! Capeesh?"

(film roll cuts to black)

And I hope with that tale, you could find some ideas (and backstory ideas) to add to 'yer character-- and names, too! c:
Let's do time travel more often! :lol:

WOW THAT WAS QUICK-- BOTH MAKING DOROTHY, AND THE TYPING AND STUFF.

HEY CONGRATS ON SOLVING YOUR PROBLEM THING, WHICH YOU PROLLY DID LIKE 24 HOURS AGO. YOU SHOULD PROLLY EDIT THE DESCRIPTION FOR THE FIRST ARTWORK OF DOROTHY SO PEOPLE DON'T BUG YOU, UNLESS YOU WANT MORE NAMES AND STUFF.

Hey, this was fun. You have Skype? :la:

dude electro swing does that to me too! :'U
it's like my hand and mind dances to it when I draw while listening to it

and Dorothy sounds like a very coy, mischievous name for this guy. It adds character c:
so you got my vote for that name yo
