"Ok, now for a little news... Some big changes are happening here in the Steeleverse, and it's happening really fast. The next update will be on November 8th, and I'll explain everything then. Also, before you ask (Again), Mojoraven, Mariah and I finished shooting for Cry Havoc this past week. So look for it soon. Plus, Mariah has a couple of great photostories in the works too! In the meantime, have a great Halloween! "

Only 2 more days! Dangit, I can't wait. Hope all is well and moving along for the big event!

Ever consider marketing a Steelverse calendar?

Hello all. I got a quick update on behalf of Bully_pup. He has moved to Texas out in the sticks and does not have an internet connection just yet. He is of course working hard on getting one. Worst case he may have to try something through the local library but that isn't a really good option. FTP clients or whatever being loaded on their computers is most likely not going to be allowed. He said he will make up for it once he actually does rejoin the world of the connected. Big difference from central Las Vegas to open range country.

Good news though as he will still be shooting with Mariah! Mariah travels quite a bit and will 'land' in Texas to beat up some cowboys now and then.

I wish him all the best and look forward to updates to both sites.

Texas?

Maybe he could hook up with these guys, Craig Miller and John Thorne:

spectrummagazines.bizland.com/OrderingInfo2.chtml

They're still putting out CERBERUS; may revive SPECTRUM. Might be open to other comics-related projects.

Not while I'm still breathing spunk!

Ok, Steele Productions has moved to East Texas. I'm on borrowed internet time so I'll save the long story for when I get set up and back online.
The short story;
I had arranged everything (broadband, tv, phone etc..) a month before moving. However, after the move, the installer came but said high internet (through his company) was not availible. He said it was probably the sales staff just throwing me "yes's" to close the sale.
So, I set out to find an internet provider. first cable.. Nope... Too rural for cable. Unless I wanted to pay an estimated $7,500.00 to $10,000.00 to run the line to my street. Then a wireless company called clearwire. Again no.. Too rural. Then a local wireless company called Skynet (LOL)
and of course...NO. Too rural for a signal. Guess they haven't yet become self aware. DSL??? Haha. Guess..
So, I'm down to two options. AT&T aircard. and a satellite company called Hugesnet. Both are availible but expensive. AT&T is cheaper to set up, but slower than satellite.
Anyway, it'll be one of those two this week. The only reason I've waited this long is because it took surveyers from each of the above mentioned companys to come out to my property and tell me the bad news.

However, I did take a trip out to Louisiana and got on my Dad's antique of a computer to get out an update on Adara's site. I would have updated both sites, but it literally took several hours just to run the images through his old Pll. Mandi's updates will be later this week, and ontime from there out.

Ok, now you're probably wondering "why Texas?"
That's the long story. But it's a good one.

Until we're back up and running, you can email me at bully_pup@yahoo.com . I go once a day to the library to check my email.

Kelly, seems to me you've got a case for fraud against the provider that lied to you.

www.MandiSteele.com updated!

A few technical problems put me a little behind this week. Just posted the update at Mandi's site, but Adara's update will not be finished until Saturday 12/8.

Also, I have lots of news, but I'm still getting my house in order over here. I'll try to have you all up to speed on all the happenings by Saturday.

Ok Thanks.

I've got to say, is there any reason why the updates are getting so small now? This update is 35 pics, 8 of which are collages of the other 27. I like these types of stories but if you're going to release it in such a trickle then it's a bit of a shame. The previous update 'Girls of Cry Havoc' was just 20 pics, seriously, if you did take more then just put the raw versions up as well because I'd rather have 60 different pics of any quality than 20 of the best ones and 40 odd on the cutting room floor. I also want to check you got the next update right, it say's 12/16 that would be 10 days if it is on time. I've recently paid for a month where I got nothing, I just donated $14.95 to you so to return with tiny updates and space them apart more than you used to doesn't seem like progress. I know you don't like criticism but I'd like to know where you are going with this so I can decide what to do.

Nothing wrong with criticism Zebra.
I'll try to address some of your points.
Small updates.. They're not all going to be 80 to 150 pictures. Mainly because on some chapters of a photostory it takes less pictures to tell the story. Yes, I could post some more raw images, but are reasons that I don't. One, there are usually serveral of the same pose and two, there are quite a few bad pictures. By bad I mean, bad lighting or exposure, model blinking ( or otherwise not prepared for the shot), and too many shots of background objects or of the Male talent.
A few years back, I did post up all the good pictures of the models, and got slammed by a couple of people in the yahoo group for trying rip everyone off by anouncing 100 pictures when there were only 40 pictures of the girls in different poses. It's not that I was trying to rip anyone off, I just liked all the pictures. So, I followed up, but by only posting the best of the bunch.
Zebra, sometimes there are going to be fewer pictures.
But it's only because I want to keep the quality level up. Now, if you want, drop me an email, and I'll send you all of the other pictures, but I'm not going to post them on the sites.
12/16 update..... Yes, it'll be 10 days intead of 7. The final chapter of CRY HAVOC is a big one. It's going to take me some time to do the effects and put together the panels. And, I'm traveling about 5 hours to Austin for a photoshoot mid week next week.

Hope this helps Zebra, and what ever you decide to do, I'll completely understand. I do have one question. You mentioned that the story panels were just pictures of the other 27. Would you rather not see the panels? Actually that question goes for everyone.
I don't want people thinking I'm trying to jip them by posting the same picture twice. As a standard I post the panels first. Then all the pictures it took to make the panels so everyone can see their favorite parts of the story in full size. However, if you want just the pictures and not the story panels..... Yeah, hit me with a show hands. I like doing them, but I'd hate to think I'm doing it for nothing. So, if nobody wants to see them, they are so f-ing gone! LOL

I've never minded the combination of story panels and individual shots, though perhaps the individual shots should be limited to the most artistic -- or the sexiest.

To me, the important thing is to get good models and good stories. There must be local talent in East Texas; although some of the Vegas models may fly in, I presume that not all of them can do so, and certainly not every week. The scenery's different where you are now; don't know how much use you can make of that. Most Texas towns I've seen are rather grubby looking -- the big exception is Waxahatchie, where they've made several movies, but that may be too far off from you.

Don't let your troubles get you down. I'm sure you can do good work in Texas once you hit your stride.

I'm sure once his internet is back up things will pick back up. No shortage of local talent in Texas!
