  2. Dear Friends, I wanted to invite you to join me for a new musical adventure, "Dawnstar: Eternity"! The music features cinematic and fantasy stylistics, and this album is the third in the Dawnstar series, which I have been conjuring inspired by astronomy and The Elder Scrolls during the past year. I hope that you may join me on this quest for musical exploration as this new album is inspired also by several art and science disciplines. I am currently running a Kickstarter campaign in hopes to make the production possible, and I hope that you may consider joining this new project and enjoy being a part of it. Thank you very much for supporting and inspiring me! Julia <3

  4. So some avid fans with too much time on their hands have covered the entire Beatles' Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album as a retelling of Star Wars' A New Hope. Each track is more ingenious than the next. This surely wins the internet for 2017:

  6. Dear friends, We are currently running a Kickstarter campaign to release the recordings of our string quartet program, "Rivendell", and wanted to invite you to join us and help make this album a reality! The program, inspired by fantasy and medieval themes, includes selections from Arcanum: Of Steamworks and Magick Obscura, themes from The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Game of Thrones, and movements from The Lord of the Rings string quartet. You could visit and join the project at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/nestringquartet/rivendell-fantasy-string-quartet-album-release, - it will be running until July 17th.

We hope that you will consider becoming a part of this project, and we are very grateful to you for your support and inspiration! Thank you! NESQ
  7. So, along the lines of the Great American Hero, what song would you recommend to use for the northern version of Buglips, The Great Canadian Hero!? One that I can think if is "I drink alone!" by George Thoroughgood remade to be "I paint alone!"....
  8. So, I am sitting here dry brushing the terrain pieces from DDS2, and the cd changer is playing Deep Purple 'Black Knight'. The 'House of Hair' with Dee Snyder just ended 30 minutes ago, and the radio was playing [redacted] so the CD player is loaded and on shuffle.... I listen mainly to metal music, doesn't mater if it's from the '60s or came out today, as long as it rocks! As my formative music years were the '80s, it is really no surprise. Good seats at a concert were $20, and nose bleeds were $10.... Try finding parking at a concert for that today! Some favorite bands, in no particular order: Deep Purple, Dio, Rainbow, Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Twisted Sister, Michael Schenker, Yngvie Malmstein, Jimmy Hendrix, Skid Row, AC DC, Jethro Tull, (They did beat Metallica for a grammy.... ), Ufo, Scorpions, Rush, Yes, Triumph.... I also like some Classical Music, Strauss, Beethoven, Mozart, Copland, Holst, Wagner, being some favored composers.... Almost anything with a Sci-fi or fantasy theme and or lyrics will get at least a listen... So what is on your I-Pod, in your CD player, or in your vinyl collection? Or do you paint in SILENCE????? George
  9. Does anyone know of any minis playing an accordion? The only one I've found so far is the Mousling squeezebox player in the tavern set. Doesn't have to be human, this band is already multi-species… I'll use the mouse if there's no other option, I'd just prefer a full-size accordion. Thanks!
  10. I haven't actually seen "Frozen" yet. Movie's been out awhile, but I've been busy. But I can tell you chapter and verse what HAPPENS, oh yeah. And the snowman is named Olaf. And it's an allegory for bein' gay. Except when it isn't. And it's a feminist fable. Except when it's an allegory for oppression of women. And best of all, you can have "Frozen" cereal for breakfast, "Frozen" Campbell's soup for lunch, and a "Frozen" frozen dinner for dinner, and in between, you can play with enough "Frozen" toys to recreate the entire movie, before finally going to bed on "Frozen" sheets, pillowcases, and comforter! I am starting to dislike a movie I have never actually seen. It's happened before, too. I didn't WANT to hate "E.T." It came naturally, though. The movie came out in 1982, and I went and saw it in a theatre. I thought it was a bit kid flavored for my taste, but not a bad movie at all; rather liked it. And I forgot about it about ten minutes after I walked out of the theatre. "Star Wars," it wasn't. For about a month, everything was OK. And then, the happy meal toys appeared. And the collectible set of glasses. And the marketing tie-in with Reese's Pieces. And the coloring books. And the toilet paper. And the sheets. And the windup toys. And the cereal. And... for something over a year to 25 months, I literally could not go out in public without having ET shoved down my throat in some form or fashion. Staying home didn't help. They attached ET to anything they thought might possibly sell better with a frog-faced alien on it. Reese's Pieces' sales went stratospheric, and everybody else wanted a piece of the action. I literally couldn't watch a half hour sitcom without seeing some commercial with a clip from the movie in which ET was trying to sell me anything from hair conditioner to brake fluid. And one day, I turned on the radio, and Neil Diamond of all people sang, "Turn on your heart-liiiight..." and I literally jumped back from the radio in horror. No, NO, NOT HERE, TOO! And the [expletive deleted] song went gold, and they played the fraggin' thing every five minutes, and I literally went out and bought my first Sony Walkman so I could listen to music without having ET stuffed into my poor ears. I wondered in calm horror, did they pay Neil Diamond to sing an ET song, or was he so wild about the movie that he wrote and sang the fraggin' thing out of sheer enthusiasm for the Culture God that was ET? The phenomenon was that saturated in the fraggin' culture. To live in America was to eat, breathe, drink, and sleep ET. And to this day, if the thing comes on TV, I'll change the channel as fast as I can reach the remote. I've only seen the actual movie twice, but after a couple of years of marinating in the cultural phenomenon 30 years ago, I'm marked for life. Pavlov's dogs drooled, and I flee ET. I mourn "Conan The Barbarian." I didn't want to dislike "Conan." I really liked it when I went to go see it in the theatre. But later, my roommates and I splurged for cable with ALL the premium channels, and that night, we made popcorn and prepared for the SHOW. And we clicked on HBO. What's on? "Conan The Barbarian," with Arnold Schwarzenegger. How about it, guys? Meh. Seen it. What else? Showtime! They try harder! What's on? James Earl Jones? No, Thulsa Doom.... in the middle of "Conan the Barbarian." Ah. Well. What else? Cinemax! Awesome! The Home Nudity Network! What have they got? Ah. "Conan The Barbarian." A couple of months later, we had the cable company pull the premium channels. And for 25 years, I haven't been able to watch "Conan The Barbarian." It's especially bad with songs, though. I don't hate "All About The Bass." Not yet. Or "Take Me To Church." I'm getting there, though. But they haven't been ramrodded HARD enough yet. I don't walk into stores and hear it blasting at me through the sound system yet. And they haven't coopted the song for commericials. Yet. So far, I can escape from it by simply twisting a knob. Not so "Elvira." Not the erstwhile Mistress Of The Dark, Bad Movies, and Cleavage. Her, I still like. But the song of the same name by the Oak Ridge Boys, I cannot stand. Because once again, back in the 80s, something went wrong with reality, and the dumbest song ever written became legally mandated to play on every broadcast medium, nonstop. "Ail-VAH-ruh, ah oom poppa, oom poppa mau mau, Ail-VAH-ruh..." There were days I kept the Walkman headphones clamped on my skull nonstop, to keep the earworms OUT. There was no ESCAPING it. At least one radio station in central Texas played the [expletive deleted] thing four times an hour. I heard it leaking from car windows, in sandwich shops, walking down the street... it Would. Not. Stop. To the point where I finally snapped, and killed that one guy who was walking down the street singing, "...oom poppa mau mau, oom poppa, oom poppa, oom poppa mau mau..." Yup. Snapped. Shrieked like a banshee with kidney stones, and with strength borne of sheer wrath, I uprooted a STOP sign and beat him to death with it, right there on the street corner. I'm lying, of course. I gritted my teeth and kept walking. But it was a near thing. Anyone else got a tale of a thing that may or may not have started out as a good thing... until sheer involuntary immersion in it threatened to make you crazy?
  11. My youngest boy is interested in playing the keyboard. In school up til now he's played the saxophone, which he wasn't bad at but his heart was never in it. We told him if he demonstrated actual application we'd let him take piano lessons next year in school (He has his own electronic keyboard, but never did much with it until now). On his own initiative, he dug out my old copy of "Too Many Songs by Tom Lehrer" and has done quite a good job figuring out the first few bars of "The Irish Ballad" (until a too-wide spread stymied his not-quite-adolescent hands), particularly since he's never played more than one note at a time before now. I would like to gently encourage this without being too overbearing. Do the musicians on the board here have any suggestions? Is a book of music a good idea? All I can think of is Bach's "Well Tempered Clavier." If it helps, his elder siblings are quite accomplished with classical guitar and flute and they all get along well.
  12. Since I know some of you are fans, TSFH just released a new album. It is called Miracles and while it is different, it is awesome!
  13. This torch song was (rightly) removed as off-topic from a discussion of the shipping of the Bones miniatures from China. I'd like to preserve it here for posterity: Well, there's no verse to this song 'Cause I don't want to wait a moment too long To say that I'd love to get you from a slow boat from China All for to play with Bones To get you to keep you for my many campaigns The dragons, critters, monsters and the zombies with brains Well, out in the portage there's a PVC shortage Leaving my paints alone Well, I'd love to get you from a slow boat from China All for to play with Bones Well, I'd love to get you from a slow boat from China All for to play with Bones Speed up that slow boat Oh that slow slow boat from China (adapted from "Slow Boat to China" by Frank Loesser)
  14. One of my favorite bands, and special guests on the Bob and Tom show, Here come the Mummies have their own Kickstarter to help launch their next CD. If you like the Funk, especially with lots of horns, please give them a listen. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/787528134/make-cryptic-our-best-and-biggest-yet
