  1. Well, there are lots of OOP minis that I am very fond of, but if I had to single out just one I think it would be the catoblepas from Ral Partha's AD&D series:
  2. How do you define out of date? It's not like we're eating them. Is it?
  3. It was announced today that more than half of the adults in the UK have now had their 2 doses of vaccine. Guess what I received today from that well-known gangster, Jabba the Arm?
  4. It's a very long time since I've been to a cinema. I don't think I ever walked out of one mid-movie. Even on TV it's extremely rare for me to start watching a film and not finish it. I want to know how it ends, regardless of how bad it is. There is one notable exception that springs to mind -- a film I have tried to watch on TV on two occasions and not been able to bring myself to finish it either time. That film is Eraserhead.
  5. My only real attempt at sculpting was around 1987, when I made this:
  6. If anyone is interested, the Dork Tower store is offering this in a variety of formats -- sticker, pin, button, patch, t-shirt, etc.
  7. I had this on some of my DDM prepaints. I think it may have been plasticiser leaching out of the minis rather than mold. I washed them with dish soap and an old toothbrush (the paint on DDMs is virtually indestructible). Several years later I have seen no sign of the bloom returning.
  8. Amusing randomness exercise: Take a song lyric that includes the word "cloud" and replace it with "clown". The results can be entertaining, or sometimes just bizarre. The sun is out, the sky is blue There's not a clown to spoil the view... Randomness #XVIII: Hey, You, Get Off Of My Clown
  9. "I ask for so little. Just fear me, love me, do as I say and I will be your slave." -- Jareth the Goblin King
  10. "I'll kill you with my tea cup." -- Richard B. Riddick
  11. I've never owned a dog myself, but in my youth there were a couple of canines in the family at different times. Both mutts. Amazingly, I have actually managed to dig up some (very poor) photos of them). The first photo is dated 1978, and shows Judy. This one is from 1990, and shows Scruff, along with my mother.
  12. RIP Michael Collins, Apollo 11 astronaut. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-56921562
  13. Are you certain about the attribution? It was my understanding that it was actually by Michael Whelan. It certainly appeared (titled "Sentinels") in a Whelan calendar about 20 years ago (I still have the pic from the calendar on my wall). Also, I found this:
