I... can?

 

Sorry. 

 

Also, not like brains at all. Mushrooms have more substance and taste like butter and garlic (or they should anyway)

 

Mushrooms actually absorb the flavours from the herbs/spices you add.

I mostly fry them with pepper, paprika, parsley, garlic and a drop of worceistershire sauce.

I am aware.

 

Those flavors should always include butter and garlic ::P:

Garlic is a must, I agree!

Hope the weather stops torturing everyone for a while!  Except Buglips, of course, because the rock is due to get buried under snowdrifts soon.  ;)  I'm starting to feel like the weather people here are playing a game with the forecast where they keep saying it's going to rain in a few days but when it gets to that day it doesn't actually rain.  

 

And unexpected good news on the car repairs, apparently a plastic bit had come loose and was dangling down where it could bump a fan.  That plus some loose bolts on a plastic cover might have been the source of the unpleasant noise.  Hopefully.

It's always nice when it's something simple. Hope that means it's cheap too!!

I have discovered that there are 3 game stores in Montreal within 1.5km of where we're staying.

Possible side trip?

Folk Metal?!?

Oh, yes. There are some really cool bands that fall into that sub-genre.

Thanks for the vid, GlitterWolf; I hadn't heard of them before. :winkthumbs:

I can't tell you how many pizzas they have ruined!

We'll just have to agree to disagree on that one.

Free pizza is good pizza, yeah?

Well it cost $15 to maybe solve my problem, so...  ?  Really depends on whether the noise comes back.

Same here.

 

That statement (and following through on it) have gotten me into loads of fun trouble interesting situations.::D:

I got up to I think 7 varieties of mint in my yard. I might have a mint obsession. 

 

Mint is lovely but, um ...

 

The night the kudzu gets your fields you sleep like the dead...  <_<

 

It does take over.

 

I had some peppermint in a pot on the porch once.  I stopped watering it and it took two years to die.  It sent off incredibly strong horizontal tentacles out into space a yard or more to try to find a landing spot to take root in.

      So I realized I only had one painted dwarf (!) when one of my GMs asked me if I had anything for the Jadeborn, a race in Exalted that is roughly equivalent to dwarves except for the 0.001% who are roughly equivalent to elves. And they are also sort of stone golems. Based on jade.
       
      I thought Reaper's 60184: Meyanda, Android Priestess, sculpted by Bobby Jackson, would do well for one of the elfy artisan Jadeborn and I pulled out a random assortment of seven (because of course) dwarves for the worker and warrior Jadeborn.
       
      All paints used are Golden Matte Fluid Acrylics. Color mixes are (usually) noted, but not exact ratios.
       
      Questions are welcomed and I will try to answer them. Critiques are appreciated.
       
      This is the way I usually start miniature figures: Lightly primed with Titanium White, then when that is dry, washing it over with Burnt Umber. Burnt Umber is a dark, transparent pigment that settles into crannies when thinned down and shows the details very well. It also gives a nice warm undertone to later paint layers.
       
      I left a few crystal and gem areas white so they will have more luminosity later.
       

      Left to right:
      Reaper 60184, Meyanda Android Priestess; Ral Partha; Hasslefree HFD014 Hatherley; Oathsworn Miniatures; Oathsworn Miniatures; Red Box Games; Stonehaven Miniatures; Reaper 14143: Kara Foehunter, Dwarf Hero
       
      Details:

       
      The Ral Partha dwarf is tiny!

      So, I'm a part of a Bi-Monthly Twitter Secret Santa'like Exchange called #BoxofManyThings! I'm doing Miniatures for both of the organizers of it and this is one of them. The individual in question goes by the Handle, owlbare on twitter and uses a Purple Owlbear as his Avatar. So I chose to do up a Cute little Owlbear for him in his signature Colors. These are actually his photos since I forgot to take any! Anywho, hope you enjoy:)

      Rather than clutter up the topic in sci-fi general with the details of how I'm painting these guys, I decided to start a wip thread. 
       
      The plan is to paint all the marines in the primaris half of the new warhammer 40000 starter box.
       
      So far I know the base colors I'm going with are purple armor, silver trim, blue weapons, green lenses. I haven't decided on squad markings or chapter symbol yet. This is of course not the colors of a canonical chapter, so I'm making it up as I go.
       
      I painted two test models just to make sure purple, blue, silver looked ok.

      I speed-painted these over two afternoons to be a party of NPC adventurers for an eclectic mash-up of Exalted and the World of Darkness.  They are 77322, Kassandra of the Blade (sculpted by Werner Klocke); 77405, Aeris, Female Elf Ranger (sculpted by Julie Guthrie); as-yet unnumbered Mythos figures based on 50032: Jake Ryan, Hero Explorer (sculpted by Bobby Jackson) and the Victorian Lord from the set 50326: Victorian Lord & Dame (sculpted by Bob Ridolfi); and 77409, Flara, Elf Heroine (sculpted by Werner Klocke).
       
      WIP thread here.
