    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    For Hubby it made it better, but he had somewhat different reasons for hating it than I. I wasn't surprised by it at all, really. But it still made me angry.

    Getting to Know You, May 2018

    Looms. Fabric, in one form or another, has helped humanity adapt to the various conditions in the habitats we've encountered, as well as providing a vehicle for self expression. Without woven fabric, it's arguable that our options may have been decidedly lessened. Textiles. Most people probably don't realize that many of the things we take for granted and as obvious are not so. The wheel as a form of convayance wasn't a thing in north and South America until the Europeans arrived, for example. Same with the warp-weighted loom. This was a loom that hung from the ceiling, was easy to set up, easy to take down (so it didn't take up precious space), and was used to make most of the cloth in Ancient Greece. (Or Crete, I don't recall right now.) The warp (vertical) threads were weighted at the bottom to keep them taut. Because of the way it was constructed, very wide cloth could be woven from it. Which made the drapped fashions Ancient Greece is known for, possible. This loom was was invented in Greece (or Crete, lol, I don't remember which), and was only found in those areas. Other, more complicated (or less complicated) looms have been created all over the world, but none has had quite the same lasting, iconic impression.
  4. Today we swung by toys r us to see how their closing sale was going. I was disappointed that all the madame Alexander fan girls Black Panther dolls were gone, but I did pick up a captain America doll at 50% off. That picture doesn't really do her justice. She is both better looking and weirder than it. Their costume choices were odd, but the clothes are really nice quality and well made. I also have black widow. They've made iron man and spider Gwen in the same line, but I'm not as interested in them (I don't like iron man and I don't know much about spider Gwen). Like I said, I was really disappointed that they didn't have any of the Black Panther dolls, she was the best one imo. I may have to pick her up elsewhere. I'm also really hoping they do a Captain Marvel doll. Thor (or Loki) dolls would be fun, as would Gamora and Scarlett Witch.

    Having seen the movie today, I think I know what you're talking about, and I agree. Hubby and I nearly walked out. If it it makes you feel any better, that first credits scene is canon. I have to put a bit of effort into not making all my characters redheads. I think at least half of them (the ones that have hair anyway) have red hair. I know I have one blonde, and a few brunnetes. And one gal with blue hair. Because pixies should always have awesome coloured hair. I'd try to help you, but I'm too busy running from a horde of zombies.

    For the purposes of this thread, it is best to describe your ideas. When the thread is complied and sent off to the idea team, they don't keep pictures or links to pictures.

    I am also interested and wish to subscribe to your newsletter I already have an idol and t-shirt! Speaking of t-shirts, I got the deadpool one with him riding the pink unicorn. I'm gonna wear it on Saturday to see the movie

    I'm gonna say the past, in the late 90s. There's certain things I could invest in to make my now more comfortable.

    If they put that dragon in this project I'll have to back. A cute sleeping dragon would be awesome
  12. I wonder how hard it would be to turn his art into recognizable cosplay... it might be fun just to see people's horrified faces.

    This is gonna be a stressful week. On Wednesday they're doing apartment inspections, so we have to remove all evidence of our cats from the premises. Thankfully we have a friend that will take them for a day. On Saturday my brother and I are closing an account we'd had for a bunch of change we found in my dad's apartment. We don't need to hold on to it, so we're splitting it between us three kids. And, in about three weeks, they're gonna start my dad on a morphine drip as part of his hospice.

    Girl in cute dress with long hair. I don't think I've seen a mini I'd choose to be me. In June Hubby and I are road tripping down to the Tahoe area of California, for my brother's wedding. Then later that month we're seeing Pom-Poko, as part of Ghibli-fest. In July we're seeing Princess Monoke. We'll probably see Ant-Man & the Wasp, but I'm not looking forward to that the way I'm looking forward to Captain Marvel.

    Oof. I'm dead tired (started playing ni no kunai and forgot to take a nap) and there are obnoxious people here. I'm too tired for this nonsense.

    High Laurie telling Rachel that they were on a break is probably one of my favorite Hugh Laurie moments.
  18. Omg, this is hilarious! Thank you

    Ya know, the writers for lost in space did a great job of making "dr smith" utterly hatable. Like, I almost wanted to stop watching. Plus, no matter how urgent, people were so fricken slow!
  21. Finally watched The Last Jedi tonight. It was alright. It might be the cramps, but I just wasn't getting excited by it the way the first three made me. Like, the movie did all the right things to get me emotionally invested, but I was just "meh".

    Reapercon BoGW?

    By that, do you mean the next reapercon BoGW?

    @Chaoswolf so what happens with what's left of the box?
  24. You mean King Arthur: Legend of the Sword? It was a fun movie if you forget everything you know about King Arthur except for the GoPro running scenes... those almost made me throw up.
