Grognard '80s Rock God Strikes!! (Accidentally)

Recommended Posts

I was informed a few moments ago, by a coworker, that the headphone jack on my computer must be malfunctioning, because everybody in our otherwise quiet office had been subjected to about an hour of Glenn Hughes singing his guts out on the little-known-yet-fantastic 1985 concept album Phenomena. (Whilst I rocked on, ignorant of the fact, earbuds in place.)

 

Just to sweeten the pot, it's a dark album with lyrics pertaining to terror, Hell, endless night, creatures coming out of the dark, and Old Scratch himself makes a couple of appearances.

 

I am unsure whether to celebrate this little gift I have given my office mates, or hide in embarrassment.

 

That said, in my heart, I understand that their lives have been made at least minutely better, by having dwelt for a few fleeting moments in Greatness.

 

Anybody else embarrass themselves totally in recent days?

Not in recent days but back in high school I was listening to Metallica's Ride the Lightning through my headphones in my room. Now my room was in the basement but it was right below my parent's bedroom. Little did I know I didn't switch the A & B input selectors on my Pioneer stereo. These inputs were used to select what channels you wanted your sound to go to. A main, B secondary. Headphones were on B, A was the main. I forgot to shut off A, which in turn I got to deal with a high irratated dad due to he didn't want to listen to my rock crap late at night.

 

Whoops!!

 

(sorry dad! :B):  :B): )

This implies a cultural concept of shame.  I do not embarrass myself.

 

I embarrass other people around me rather a lot.

 Much like the goblin, everything I do, intentionally or otherwise, is for the greater benefit of humanity and should be appreciated as such.

My students are routinely subjected to my choices in music, which firmly reside in the 80's and early 90's. They seem to suffer from the belief that when I put music on it is for them.

So on a submarine, pretty much the only space you have to yourself is your rack (bunk).  So alot of guy spend their off watch time there watching movies or playing games.  Out of courtesy for everyone else who may be sleeping, you use head phones (or that guy who has been up for the last day and a may break you and your entertainment device in two).

 

As the rack is the size of a coffin, sometimes moving around will cause the head phone jack to come out.  In which case the entire compartment can hear your choice of video games movies or, uhm..."recreational videos".

 

Not like anything like that ever happened to ME of course.

Of course. :poke:

 

I got noticed singing along with a Slayer song in the car this past Monday.

Although, considering that it was Slayer, I'm not sure if I was more embarrassed, or the person noticing was more terrified.... :devil:

Well, if they let it go on for an hour without telling you, chalk it up to their appreciation of the music and be happy.

      Melody (aka Mel) the Necromancer is complete! She is clearly a Slytherin. 
       
      Adventures: shading green with purple (thanks CMPA), NMM scythe, hiding a bad foot with paint, heck of a tattoo, granite, and accidentally painting a familiar face. 
       
      Mel will be used in my D&D campaign as a potential romance interest to the Necrobard in an attempt to sway him towards evil. 
       
      Some photos are zoomed on face, scythe, and the rock.

      Quick (hopefully) question on using cork as a basing material.  I'm currently working on making a few rock bases using cork for my rock.  The question I have is that on one of the bases, I noticed that I had a particularly large amount of overhang with the cork (i.e. the cork cuts in quite bit as it goes from high to low, leaving a nice gap between the top of the cork to the base).  So that said, how sturdy is the cork?  Will it still support the mini?  One side of the mini will be plenty supported and the mini itself is plastic, so shouldn't be too heavy, but of course I am hoping to avoid having the base fall apart in the near future.
       
      On a related note, is there anything you can do to reinforce the cork?  (and yes, unfortunately I have already superglued it to the base).  There's room to get some green stuff in there, but that will also likely break the "look" of the rock if you know what mean.
       
      Anyway, any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!

      This is the 2nd figure that I finished coming out of my hiatus. My goal with her was to do extreme on source lighting, imagining an adventurer going into a totally dark room with a flashlight shining on her. 
       
      As a weeping angel, I thought it would be neat to make her shielding herself from the light, but awake on the side where it is dark. The photos sortof capture her red eye. Not canon with Dr. Who, but I thought it was a liberty worth taking. 
       
      I also tried to make the statue look like she's made out of marble, but honestly, I don't know if she's light or dark marble due to the lighting! Which considering how bright a dark but reflective surface can be, is okay with me. 
       
      Mostly, the figure was a fun little experiment.

      It's simple math, really.  Ranged Attack + Improvised Weapons = Hill Giant.

      So, I recently made some purchases on Reapermini.com - and spent enough to get a Halloween Goulie bag - and inside, I got a rock, so I thought about how I could pay Reaper back for the 'trick' that was given to me, and this is what I came up with.
       
      Charlie Brown, on "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown", said the famous phrase "I got a rock" so I went with it and got this:
