How to tell I do not normally hover above trees.

It's alright, not everyone has that talent.

Started playing Fallout Shelter on Steam. This may have been a bad idea...

I can finally wrestle open the closet door! :bday:

 

There's stacks of stuff inside as tall as I am. :wacko:

 

...Yeah, I don't think I'm going to be able to finish this today. I still need to organize all the bookshelves, unearth the shelving unit in the closet and drag it out to use in the room proper, and I haven't even touched the hobby desk/chair yet. :unsure:

 

Still, progress is being made. I discovered the floor, and cleared off one shelving unit entirely (which was carefully re-filled with organized, needed things). I may not enjoy the getting started part of spring cleaning, but once I get into it, it's actually a rather satisfying process. ^_^

 

Huzzah!        

--OneBoot :D

Congratulations!

I actually quite enjoy visiting Boston...as long as I don't have to drive in it. The 'you can't get there from here' due to (seemingly) EVERY. SINGLE. STREET. BEING. ONE-WAY.

is absolutely maddening.

I have literally never been to Boston and not gotten lost at least once while driving. The thought of needing to drive into the city for work ( and therefore having a schedule I needed to keep ) was not very pleasant.

 

Oh yeah.  You have to be seven kinds of crazy to take a car into Boston.

 

... I learned to ride my bike there. ::P:  And how to cross the street real defensively.

Lichen on trees, and moss, is quite normal, and the trees don't mind.  Some of it makes good basing materials, but most just leave you with a nasty pile of dirt before long as they decompose.

I picked up a pretty piece of bark once, with pale green lichen on it, and after a few months it had bleached away to grey nothing.

I think I must have killed the lichen, to be honest ... :unsure:

The terrain-type lichen has been processed with glycerin to keep it supple.

Something over twenty years ago, the Japanese whipped up a kids' show involving color coded Kung Fu secret agents who fought space monsters using robot animals that combined into a BIGGER robot.

Yeah, nothing new. For the Japanese, it was Tuesday.

A kidshow mogul brought the show to America, reshot new scenes involving American teenagers (who were in fact the Kung Fu secret agents), and redid it all in English as "Power Rangers" and made a bazillion dollars.

A quarter century later, it's rebooted as an American movie with Bryan Cranston.

Wonder what the Japanese think of it?

(Interesting note: In first season episodes of the TV show, keep an eye on the Yellow Ranger. The American actress was rather flat chested. The Japanese actress was not. Therefore, the Yellow Ranger's bustline enlarges and shrinks several times per episode...)

Well, when you are eaten by a grue, you won't have to worry about it.::P:

*blink*

I will have to take your word for that... 

 

I've spent the evening clipping bits from sprues in order to save space. Amazing how you can take a big box worth of minis (say the Frostgrave plastics) and turn it into a little snack sized ziplock bag of minis.

I assume this is some alien race that if not pruned would have conquered the galaxy.  Good job stopping the alien march to manifest galactic destiny Haminister!

      Look at all these old fogies, all were trying to get to where we newbies have already arisen to and attain godhood. They only wish they could reach the stars like I have and gain over 30000 err 20 posts!
       
      I do however salute you ancient beings for a randomness thread before there was a randomness thread!

      ...not just the recently completed Bones Kickstarter II.
       
      We had a lot of good conversations going in the sadly locked Discussion Thread, so we should keep them going! This isn't a place for random nonsequiters and tangents... but every good conversation should have an implicit level of drift, so while we start here with Bones-type talk, we shouldn't feel obligated to keep it on that subject.
       
      Especially since that would quickly get us exiled to the Bones forum.
       
      But on the subject of Bones Kickstarter II, Bryan has created an official Q&A thread over in the Bones forum, and the subject of "what did we not see in this Kickstarter" came up - what stretch goals did we miss? To which Bryan replied...

      Since off-topic discussion in that thread is discourage, I thought I would come over here for my response...
       
       
      NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO WHY GOD WHY WE MISSED TALIN ART NONONONONONONONO

      YES. SHE MUST BE MINE, HUZZAH!
       
      ETA: She's one I really hope gets the double treatment, Bones and metal, but if I had to pick one... mrrrgh. I think, if she's Large, I'd prefer Bones. If she's human sized, I'd prefer metal...
