    There are easier ways. For me, at least :D Also, you DO NOT want a lot of the other stuff you'd end up with, from my brain. It's not very nice in the back sections, behind the vault doors.

    Sure. Not for me nowadays, though. Back in the day we had a reptile room in the band house. 10' red tailed boa and a couple monitors, a water and a nile. The boa didn't do a whole lot, I think he was pretty old (but still ate a lot of bunnies!). The water monitor was pretty laid back but the nile was an alpha predator. We had the 2 monitors in a big terrarium with a pond. Really cool releasing some small mice and watching them hunt. The water was more like a croc, he'd hang out in the pond and wait for a mouse to come near. The nile used to hunt anything moving.

    The Academy of Realist Art in Toronto. Imagine being alive in the dark ages and walking into a modern library with Internet and skilled staff. For a week. And then going back into the dark ages.

    Do any of you have a youtube channel?

    Yep but I don't use it :D I've done a FB livestream from my studio, but I don't think watching me shade a cheek for two hours is interesting to anyone. At some point I'd like to start developing content, and probably should just for my own reference in the future. https://www.youtube.com/user/CashWiley There are a couple ancient music things on there, plus Bart drinking beer and a couple hawks that grew up in my yard. Uhh...eclectic.

    I do steaks in my cast iron pan over gas flame, too. Get the pan smoking hot, sear one side, flip, sear the other. Heat to low, flip once more to keep heat even. Also: rest the steak for 5 minutes on a warmed plate, loosely tented with foil. This lets the proteins uncoil so the cells can re-absorb some of the liquid.

    Rare to Medium-rare. I've become pretty good at winging steaks with 2-level heat. Hot sear, then slow and low. Unfortunately, I've ruined steak (not prepared by me) for everyone who's eaten at my house. Even my roast beef is wall-to-wall perfection (fast sear, then slow and low, may be a pattern, heh). If it's too rare, the texture is too rubbery. I like it red-pink but firm. Ideally, less than 2-3mm of grey (some is inevitable from the sear). Also - cut matters. My favorite cuts to grill are flank and flat iron, rib for mom (she loves fat), sirloin for the fiancee.

    Did we do this one a couple months ago? I play guitar, bass and drums. At one point it was my job.

    Vanilla is the best flavor and scent. Did you know if you mix your rum & coke using Captain Morgan's spiced rum and Diet Coke it punches up the vanilla qualities of both. Pro-tip: add vanilla ice cream to the aforementioned mixed drink for vanilla overdrive.

    If it gets OCR'd, I'd say they'd be digitized. Otherwise, it's a picture of hand-written notes and not considered digital.

    Written. I'm a visual learner, so the act of writing helps me remember. Also, being a visual person, I like to have things visible. I don't like cluttering up a display with a bunch of notes and open files, but I can keep my memo pad open and use tabs for important info, etc. It's also generally much easier to do non-linear thinking on paper.
  13. Out of all those options, I've only done a single bust. I have a ton of great ideas for dioramas, but run into my dislike of the not-painting parts of the hobby...Anyway, here's the bust I did just before getting into traditional art.

    In general, a decent respirator mask is a good thing to have when dealing with absolutely any airborne or aerosolized patriculates of any kind. I hate those cheapie disposable masks, they fog up my glasses and aren't very effective (especially with facial hair). Best thing I did was buy a respirator. Wasn't very expensive and I can just swap in new cartridges (and use a couple types depending on what I'm doing, sanding or airbrushing or whatever).
