    Getting to Know You: Sept 2018

    They just show up while I'm at work. Who knows? Maybe it's magic elves. Or a random home furnishing portal that just puts stuff where it looks good.

    Okay, so by far my sense of humor is firmly wedged in absurdism (the State, the Kids in the Hall, Andy Kaufman, etc, things that are edgy for their time), and dry absurdism is the best, but sometimes dry anti-jokes are the best: What's red and tastes like yellow paint? Red Paint. What did the farmer say when he lost his tractor? "Where's my tractor?" etc. But my favorite go-to traditional Q/A style joke is regional to the midwest and surrounding areas... "Why do White Castles [burgers] have five holes in them?" "Because that's how many bullets it took to kill the rat." I don't know why this one always stuck with me. I love Castles, and they actually use a very high grade beef for as cheap as they are, but the joke just hit me right the first time I heard it, and tell it whenever the topic comes around to sliders. For reference, they have five holes so the grill heats them faster and the steam something something something. I play hockey with one of their marketing execs and when I told him that joke he went into a spiel.

    Getting to Know You: Sept 2018

    So, yes, lots, but I have a story about one that I like in particular. Youth in this case is probably my 20s. The song is from late 1995, but the incident below happened a couple years later. There were so many good songs from this band, and on this album in particular, but one got lodged in a dream and in that dream I had the revelation that it was the most important song in the world. I felt as if I had unlocked some great human mystery in the dream, and I woke up knowing it was the most important dream that I'd ever have. Of course, those are all just silly dream feelings that one gets occasionally, but I still listen extra hard to this song when it comes up on random, and will often play it a second or third time in a row just to be sure I'm not missing the great secret hidden somewhere inside. I think it must be in the quiet part somewhere. Or the end. Or maybe the first line. Seriously, if you like lyrics, even if you hate this band, read the lyrics. There's something there I think.

    Hopefully they market the hell out of that giant. They should be proud. I would have the same painter paint up the alternate bits for promo reasons and magnetize the whole shebang.

    Pretty sure that's the same one I have in my car currently. I know it's a Buck.

    No, however I always have my car keys, and my car contains a small assortment of things for minor emergencies, one of which is a multi-tool that could do the trick in a pinch.

    I mean, I know there's a degree of perspective at work, but look at the opening of the club. It's as big as a Mantic Ogre. EDIT: Comparing the unpainted parts shot, looks like there's actually a LOT of perspective at work. Either way, fun to look at. EDIT 2: On a third look, it's actually impressive how in-focus they got the front of the club. Wonder if it's a composite shot...

    Yeah, my information came from a real Hyde-type (That 70's Show). So that makes sense.

    Water is a big thing that concerns me, in terms of rotating the supply. Bottled water will deteriorate, correct? I guess I haven't done a lot of research, but I'd heard this was the hardest thing to keep stored correctly.

    The rest of Bones 3 release schedule?

    But they have pretty big regular blisters available, there's no way all 7? 8? styles wouldn't fit in one designed for, say, the skeletal giant. That's why I'm speculating. The pre release schedule lists it as its own thing, but that clearly hasn't happened. Not sure why.

    I keep thinking about doing one of those "My Patriot Supply" food prep things, but life is expensive. Eventually I probably will stock some stuff like that, and an emergency medical kit or something.

    The rest of Bones 3 release schedule?

    Oh, there is a ton of stuff out there for tombstones (Renedra, Skull Forge Scenics, Ristul's Extraordinary Martket, Zealot Miniatures, I'm sure I'm missing some of my go-tos). It's just that if you need a lot of it, you want different styles and lots of them. I mix as many manufacturers as I can, but I've been looking forward to the Bones tombstones as a separate product for a while now as an cheap way to bulk up my stock of them. And it seems like they have these already, if packaging issues are all that are holding them up, they must be packaged weirdly, or with something else, because they could definitely fit in a standard blister. And since they aren't releasing any other Bones currently, they wouldn't want to be sitting on all that stock and have it not working for them (I would guess). All that to say, reading between the lines, I imagine they are going to package these with the fences for some reason.
