    Randomness XV: 'tis a silly place.

    Remake.... Lilo and Stitch... Nuooooo.....
  2. According to hubby ( @RuneLyall) .... Anyone of the women from that "swap your wives for a week show" (trading spouses?)..... With Stitch. Hubby absolutely loved this one.... "goodbye Twilight franchise! ... There'd be no vampires left alive!"

    Nothing says love like some Waaagh!

    I vote.... Gretchin. Usually I'd vote orcs, but I feel like voting different today.
  4. My local library is $0.10 per gram, but lead times are 6-8 weeks. So hopefully Vancouver is similar

    Huh, almost ran over a goose today. ... Wait, what? It's mid-March, we almost never have geese around here this early!!! ... Eh, not as odd as that one deer that got so close I got a pretty decent pic of it with an iPhone, and had to worry about whether it was going to hop in the back of my truck or not....

    Was wondering when someone would pipe up with something to that effect. It's tempting, but yeah, I too like it being highs in the mid-teens every day... ...Still tempting to order in some paint sets from Talon Games, and some... Well, something from Reaper paint-wise.....

    Oooh, I might be able to sneak an order in with Reaper this month. Hmmmmmm, wonder if it's worth risking ordering paint yet...

    Good place at Amazon for Reaper

    There's always Robert's Ultimate Vortex mixers, but those are a lot harder to get pasts one's spouse due to being like... $230ish CAD with shipping...

    It works fairly well for Skaven fur too, if I remember correctly.
  10. Your Tim Hortons ratio is a tad off. They're like mosquitos in spring, they're everywhere (except when you really REALLY need an okay coffee, and then it's at least five minutes away) You also forgot lacrosse pitches/fields, that's our national sport!

    Was at a local shop for $6.99 CAD when I looked a few days ago, but I already own a Beholder that's still in the package (well, because I put it back in, but still). But yeah, a lot of places are selling that mini at inflated prices because of how hard it is to get.
  12. No idea why, but for some reason swapping Saitama (One Punch Man) and Naruto (from, uh, Naruto) seems like it would be funny... A more serious answer would be..... Hmmmmmm.... Guy Fieri (from many things, but Diners, Drive Ins, and Dives comes to mind) and Asuka (from Neon Genesis Evangelion). Because Guy Fieri would probably find a way to cook the Angels...
  13. Clickable link: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/dracostudios/dragons-of-the-red-moon My my, they do look nice. I'll have to think if budget could do it though, but wow. Gorgeous.
  14. Don't remember the exact name of the song, but "the geography song" by Arrogant Worms is pretty hilarious, with some good names of cities that actually exist.
  15. I've heard stories from some people it's the same way for those who work for the CRA (Canadian Revenue Agency). I'll never quite understand the anger and frustration. The person on the other end of the line is a person, aaand they're trying to give you money..... Back in my Convergys days (where I worked customer care for AT&T Wireless) I caught so many people off guard when I has to ask their permission to actually press the OK (or save changes) button, but since a refund is a modification to their account I was required to read a verbatim statement after summarizing the changes that were being made. My supervisor did find it cute I'd usually preface the question with "this is going to sound like a silly question..." and add in "because they make me say it" as why it was asked. Cale Tucker, why not. From Titan A. E.

    I got to deal with boring yesterday, as it was your typical annual orientation kind of thing. In other news, feels so weird today's high will be 14C.....

    True enough! I've contemplated those but I dunno, I like the idea of that deluxe starter set (tanked compressor, yay!) but that might also be because I could get a bunch more paints out in the same box and still have it be just under $500 CAD That and I finally figured out what I'd use the second airbrush for in said kit - sealing. TGP? Didn't realize @TGP did airbrush kits
  18. I choose to be excited for what will hit retail first, since I couldn't get in in time. Bones V I suspect will be a different story

    Good to know. Curious as to how it'll work out for you :) I'm still thinking some sort of setup from USA Airbrush Supply once weather gets slightly better

    Last Sword The Jungle's Awakening

    Hmm, I'll have to check when I get home. Some interesting things though...

    What's on TV?

    Started watching One Punch Man yesterday because I just couldn't find or think of anything to watch with supper. Five episodes later, I'm tired today at work.... But I can definitely see why Saitama is popular.

    Wait... Citadel has an airbrush? Is it an actual one, or one of those "inexpensive" ones you have to buy propellant for? Also... Whatcha airbrushing?

    On the coffee front, I hear that... Man I could so go for one since uhm, kinda forgot to make one this morning. ..... Because some silly fox was busy being out buying various things for our computers, and totally wasn't paying attention to the fact we had three left yesterday afternoon... Oops.
  24. They still are cleverly made pieces of glass, and even some of my cheaper lenses while a plastic composite on the outside, they do their job rather well, and are weather sealed (not that'd I'd call the Lumix 12-60 cheap, since by itself it's $600 CAD, but my 25mm f1.7 does the job at $200 CAD on sale (or $175ish if lucky enough and bought from the US)). Higher end lenses are still full metal exterior, but one huge benefit to going with plastic composites is that one source of weight goes buh bai as that part is noticeably lighter. Lenses nowadays are sharper than they used to be, auto focus is more precise (and almost always faster!) and lighter. Heck, look at Canon and some of their new telephoto zooms, shedding several pounds of weight due to modern composites, and different metal alloys (plus really, REALLY clever designing). One downside though is most lenses made these days are focus by wire, but at the same time not everyone wants actual full on built into the lens controls (or the weight they bring).. Or are you referring to smartphones? Chair ergonomics, and keyboards. QWERTY is a terribly inefficient key layout, for example, designed to prevent jamming in typewriters.... Those went electronic thirty years ago with rotating heads, so why keep the same layout? Chairs are another thing. Sure, you can get a decent ergonomic chair (if you spend $1k CAD) or you can get a basic one from Staples or such (for $200, less if on sale) but why don't we ever see some of the higher end designs slowly trickling into the lower end, like most other industries (a luxury feature in the car industry slowly works its way down to lower end models over ten years). Work could use modernizing too, we went from Windows XP to Windows 7 (due to it being end of line, zero day exploits, etc) but for some reason a few months ago they switched everything back to Win XP again, and our software is.... "out of date" is a nice way of describing it. UI is terrible, it doesn't scale very well past 1280x1024ish, and it's rather slow at doing anything (then again, it seems to rely on some sort of thin client, and constantly makes calls to head office whenever you want to do something, instead of a local server)
