    Roll Call for Con

    It survived, it wasn't in my place when the fire happened. It would have been crushed in my carry-on so she took it home for me. I periodically inquire about its wellbeing and ask for proof of life.

    FYI, anything that grows legs I'm gonna either eat or squish. Possibly both.

    A Reaper 5/0 would do for a con brush. Should last as long as you need it for the duration, since you might not have a full brush cleaning kit. If it knackers by end of con it still did its duty. Most brushes only need a quick rinse before use and not a full cleaning. They never do. And anyway, by the time you finish cooking them they're nothing but bones and continuum paradoxes. Best to use them for cosmic soup.

    I'll be on the card, too. Just Buglips is fine, with my dashing avatar illustration. Will be there all days, including Wednesday.

    Sweet deal, if you ask me.

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    You're not supposed to tell people your weaknesses so they can protect their stuff. You're supposed to be like "Milk, pah! I could eat these cookies with a glass of rocks! I could eat every cookie in this place in less than ten seconds without so much as a single drop of milk and there's not a damn thing you OR The Batman can do about it!" And then when they ask you to prove it, you just throw a smoke bomb and cackle maniacally. And maybe even steal the cookies. I sometimes forget that part.

    There was a huge metal yellow-orange dinosaur eating the foliage in my backyard today. I'm told that 6 am tomorrow morning is, finally, The Big Show: The Flattening.

    While I was outside having a smoke my mom came back from the grocery store. She said: "Do you want some ciabatta bread?" And there was a lot of noise from ground maintenance so I said: "What?" And she said: "Ciabatta bread! Do you like ciabatta bread?" And so I said: "I don't think I've ever tried chewbacca bread."

    I liked the HD set rather a lot, and am on record as saying the HD/Bones combo is the best paint set ever made. So I feel the pain. I would not count on it being a rebranding. We should keep speculation to a sharp minimum, and until told differently we should assume it's gone and not coming back. It is quite frustrating, and I'm concerned that this sort of thing and how it is delivered may damage customer confidence. I've been through it with Pro Paint, New Pro Paint, Heavy Gear, and now HD. Each time it makes me a bit more wary about investing in new stuff... like Pathfinder paint or Dungeon Dwellers. These are big, long-term investments so it can be quite disruptive to a customer if it is so sudden. At this point they've been in inadequate storage long enough that I've written them off. They are almost certainly ruined by now, if not by temperature then by contamination. They're not hermetically sealed and sat quite a while in nasty, nasty water. But I'm already off to a great start building a new collection of collectible OOP paints - I just bought two full sets of HD!

    I don't know what all this is about, but if there's water foozball and free chicken taters then I'm in.

    I had this exact same experience, only with a clown in a sewer grate.

    The return of Lastman. Hi.

    I was wondering what happened to you, my man. Sorry to hear it was mostly bad stuff, but I for one missed you quite a lot and kept peeking at your profile to see if there'd been recent activity. Jason Wiebe is still very active, Ben Siens might be doing some stuff for Reaper but not at the volume he used to. He might be sculpting for other companies, I don't have any info on that. Tom Meier closed Thunderbolt, but I *think* he's doing some new stuff for Ral Partha now that Iron Wind acquired the actual name Ral Partha again. Yes, all of it is just as confusing as it sounds.

    ReaperCon Survival Kits

    I hope so, because no outlets means no arcade machines. And no arcade machines means I'll miss out on my chance to play Mappy on a cabinet. That would legit be the worst thing to happen to me all year... and my house burned down.

    Weight Loss Support Thread

    It's a great way to do it, yep, and those are some fine muscles. You need the rest days starting out or you'll wear out quick. When three days a week doesn't cause much soreness anymore then that'll be about when you'll want to do more days. That'll make you sore for a bit since it's more frequent but you should get used to it quickly and by then it'll be such a regular thing you'll barely remember not doing it. And then I'm going to trick you into helping me move and lifting heavy things.

    Even goblins have limits, and that stench would knock dead a vulture.

    Weight Loss Support Thread

    As you get used to free weight exercise you can work that up to every day for best benefit if you're looking to use it to get fit/tone. It would wreck muscle gains if that was the goal, that's why bodybuilders generally don't. But for the more aerobic or weight loss benefits, every day works pretty good because once you hit a resistance level and stay there you're basically just using the exercise to burn energy, and nothing burns energy like free weights. This is useful for anyone who would like to lose weight and gain stamina without getting too ripply looking.

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    So on Friday there were a couple of workmen at the house rmoving metals and appliances in preparation for demolition (there is an ordinance that requires this, everything else in there just gets flattened). While I was loitering about I heard running footsteps and they both came running out of the basement apartment, whereupon one guy puked so hard it came out his nose. So I said: "What the hell did you find?" And the other guy says: "The deep freezer fell open." That thing was absolutely jammed solid with meat, sitting in the heat and damp for three weeks. Smelled like a hundred dead cows.
