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.

      Dire Wolves are the tradition pets for AD&D Hill Giants, so I bought this fine fellow to replace the smilodon that came with my Hill Giant Hunter.
       
      I always use reference pictures when painting real creatures, and this looks a bit like a real black wolf, so I'm quite happy. There are a lot more colours and steps in this chaps fur than on any of the accompanying giants, though I don't know if it shows.
       
      The joy of Bonesium means that I could easily cut off his base and glue him directly to this piece of actual granite. I recommend doing this before ANY paint is applied to either surface, to get the best bond. Else you often pull the paint off the rock and have to re-glue it, in my experience.

      Two more members of my hill giant tribe, obviously the one on the left is the original. The one on the right has a totally seamless hair piece (!) and obviously a modified club based on one stolen from another giant. He also has a slightly more upright stance which required an extension of his furs and was probably more trouble than the effect is worth, to be honest.

      Chief of my Hill Giant Tribe. I dipped his hand in hot water to form the fingers around the added rock. The strange off-centre position on his base is so he fits into his tribe better...

      Nothing special, but I stood him on a rock so he overlooks the rest of the tribe...

      Finished this a few days ago. One thing I have to say. I've looked at a lot of people's online before doing mine. And not to be rude but I don't like any of theirs. Nobody seemed to try and do a theme to the rocks that location wise made more sense for the fossilized dinosaur on its back. Lots of people made gems and all kinds of other things. You wouldn't find those things around fossil remains. So this was my attempt to have something more surreal and actually include the fossils better and since I collect museum quality fossils apart from painting minis. I've seen enough to try my hand at what it would look like more on an excavation site. :)
