View Full Version : Tell me about "Fort Fiends"

So tell me about Fort Fiends. Is it a self-appointed title or a society with strict membership guidelines and bizarre initiation rites? ;) I would consider myself a fort fiend, but does that make me a Fort Fiend? Inquiring minds want to know. I particularly ask because I have recreated the Fort Fiend logo in Illustrator (so it can be printed at any size and still look good) and didn't want to step on any toes by posting it or using it. (I sure don't want to tick off any 12th Order Fort Fiends and revoke my chance of selection!)

Its nothing official...not an actual club with memberships...its just what we call ourselves around here...it was catchy and caught on pretty well...if you got beer...mail it to me...that officiates you as a lifetime member!!!

BDR sent me his credentials. Sure looks like he's pledgemaster to me...

Besides, he's the only one who scares me. But y'all can all stop by the site, and I promise to have a cold one waiting.

The logos I did are this one, which I matched to the original very closely (just tweaking the letter spacing a bit) ...

and this one, that I just did for fun, but kinda like...

They are both available here (http://sites.google.com/site/shanmansdisney/Home/downloads) in Illustrator format. I can convert them to just about any other format you might need, just PM me.

You're only a GIMP fan cause it's cheap, as in FREE. FREE is always good though. If I can't get it through work I usually always opt for FREE.

I'm glad y'all liked the card... the thought just hit me in the funny bone and I had to crank one out. I've never used GIMP, I stick with the Adobe products since they are industry standard, expensive, but standard (CS3 costs as much as my Mac!).

As to the earlier suggestion of Rumple... well, I have a rule, you can never again drink something you've thrown-up through your nose. Nasty. Minty, but nasty! How about a nice sapphire martini instead?

Gatordad

new guy, don't be comin around here and pushing those hoity toidy drinks on us. We are simple people, we can't even spell rumplemintz, so we call it rumple and no mixology is required to pour it out. next thing you know, you'll be not lettin us throw our empties on the ground and force us to drink out of mugs instead of cans.

Now that card was great! Talkin' about stuff coming out the nose! My scrambled eggs almost made their way after reading that card. I think a piece of red pepper is still stuck in my nose although I guess it could be a booger. If it turns out to be red pepper can I still eat it?:scared1:

I love the that second Fort Fiend also. You are okay in my book and will fit just fine in here...WELCOME!:thumbsup2

It's a martini made with Bombay Sapphire (a premium gin), and, as any REAL martini is, it is garnished with olive!

The card is great! What's a sapphire Martini? I like sapphires.....and martinis...especially with olives.

Ya know, I just didn't do justice to my description of a Sapphire Martini. As I said before, you start with Bombay Sapphire premium gin (which is stored in the freezer), two jiggers. Then, take a bottle of Dry Vermouth and show it to the martini, 2-3 seconds should be enough. Put away the vermouth before you add too much! Add two olives on a Wilderness Lodge emblazoned skewer and about 10 drops of olive juice. Stir with the olives to mix the juice and the vermouth into the gin. Enjoy!

If you can't store the gin in the freezer, 20 minutes in a champagne bucket should suffice. Only as a desperate measure should you dilute the drink by shaking it with ice, that would be even worse than actually pouring the 1/2 jigger of vermouth normally called for into the mix! :cool1:

Be back in a minute, gotta go make a bevvie. BTW- does anyone know if the Fort has customized skewers? I have a trip to Artist Point planned specifically so I can get some more skewers! They look like an arrow and have the resort name on the side. I'd love some that say Fort Wilderness instead!

I'm not sure about the skewers, good question! :confused:

Dh is a big Illustrator and PS guru too (he worked for Adobe back in the early 90's)....and I plan on showing him your work this weekend. Thanks again for the files, I hope to print some static stickers etc using them! :thumbsup2 I love the last one...looks just like our tire cover (except for the musket!). Thanks!

Wow, that is so cool! I haven't stayed at the Fort yet, but when I do, Musket Mickey will be appearing just like that in my Digital scrapbook for sure! I was going to ask if you had posted any of these over on the DIS-igns board, but you beat me to that! I'm feeling quite inadequate now. Maybe I should have a Mike's Hard Lemonade ('cuz I have puked Rumple thru the nose before, too, so we aren't friends anymore!).

Thanks for the compliment, I'm glad you'll get some use out of it. No need to feel inadequate either, I was a pro graphic artist for 18 years, and am still learning!
