So, Mr. Draplin, you think by insulting writers of Photoshop books you'll get big points in the court of popular layer tennis opinion. Well, let me tell you a thing or two, Mr. Draplin. We who write things like this don't write them for our own personal pleasure or amusement, you know. We write them because we feel we're doing a service for the world, if not humanity in general - well at least those who use Photoshop. So when you put down these writers, you're not just landing a low blow against David Nakamoto and all the David Nakamotos of the world. You are landing a low blow aimed at me, and all those like me - hundreds, maybe thousands - who believe in truth, justice, and the sanctity of Photoshop filters.
But now back to the match.
That's what I'm talkin' about!!!! Good job David. Rip that doggy head Draplin guy. Make him pay for the humiliation he's heaped on our kind.
Hmmm. Lovely return. Good cat. Subversive too. Smart use of traditional and digital media in an effort to make a distinctive solution rise above the typical in the service of the atypical.
Let's see what that Draplin guy has to say now...
