1: uhm....  New paint brushes I guess?  Either that or ordering in my new microphone... 

 

2: OMG NEW MICROPHONE!!! 111!!ELEVENTYONE

 

3: By making room for said microphone, and sorting out my "I don't have enough USB ports issue" so I can have everything plugged in at the same time...  INCLUDING my HOTAS setup so I'll regularly play Elite:Dangerous again.

 

 

.... Did I mention that I'm excited about the new microphone?  I think I may have mentioned this once or twice, but just in case OMG NEW MICROPHONE ON THE WAY!!!  Oh, and it will have its own gain knob, so, uhm, no more Windows deciding I'm apparently too quiet and deafening  others in Hangouts....

1. Probably getting our house on the market

2. Looking at houses to purchase (though not sure tomorrow and Sunday count as next week)

3. Keeping the current house in a constant state of being ready to be shown in the hopes it sells quickly, which most of the homes in our neighborhood have.

In my case, it's probably because of all of the things hooked into it...  Two audio interfaces (one for recording, one for audiophile listening and/or gaming), three for keyboard and mouse, one for the djing gear, two for my Maschine and Maschine Jam, and then another two for my HOTAS setup.  I think that's all of them - no wait, one more for my card reader...  So yeah, eleven USB ports required, and I think my motherboard doesn't have quite that many, even with the extender headers.  .... Nope, technically only eight at the back, but I suspect I could add more via headers if I wanted to (I probably will, I just don't like having to use ugly expansion card slots, but that's life)

1) Finally managed to make a setup to spray prime my Ultramarines.  Results went very well

2) Priming my nemesis dreadknight so that I can finally get him painted, then get extra points in escalation league for it

3) Actually setting aside time to get all of it done

Psssst.... USB Hubs.  Just saying. (You did not hear it from me.)

Hubs and audio usually do not mix well.  Actually, they usually cause a lot of headaches and grief, doubly so when most of what you have on USB requires a decent amount of power for this an that (especially my Maschine and Maschine Jam). 

 

I have multiple headers on my motherboard, I don't mind using them, I just don't like the cable spaghetti they cause, doubly so if you use breakout cards for such (that plug into motherboard headers, and give you more ports at the back).

I did not have a stellar week; my answers my be colored by this.....

 

1)Making it to the end of the week without the need to hide any bodies, or come up with an alibi.

2)Hopefully receiving a job offer.

3)Rehearsing my "I quit" speech. Also, getting some sleep and doing absolutely nothing that I don't want to in the hopes of recharging my batteries.

1. Got a lot of necessary work done with minimum of fuss.

2. Getting more work done.

3. Spring cleaning, organising, planning, prioritising and prepping.

 

Spring on the farm. Run until I'm exhausted, the weather gets bad or finished (yeah right it's been years since I actually finished everything I wanted).

Question, April 25: How many pairs of shoes is too many and how close to that limit are you?

My wife and I each have a discretionary spending account. I can spend as much of that money on shoes as I want. In the unlikely event that my shoes are taking up too much space, then it's on me to spend some of that money on shoe storage or reduce the supply.

 

No judgment necessary.

 

For reference, though, I have three pairs of dress shoes (two black, one brown), three pairs of sneakers (one blue, one pink in serious need of deodorizing, and one laceless), one pair of sandals, one pair of steel-toed boots, and two pairs of medieval boots.

 

And I'm in the market for a pair of training heels.

Question April 26:  If you could freeze time for 1 hour, what would you do with that hour?

 

 

Well, I would be frozen too and unable to act, so...nothing.

1. I made art fun again! :bday: I've been really struggling with other stuff for several months, and many of my daily art things were just practicing circles and lines, stressing over not learning  "fast enough," and generally not having fun daily art. I had completely forgotten what I told myself when I started this daily art: I'm doing daily art to learn and create good art habits, but also because it's fun! If it ever got unfun, I needed to switch gears and focus on something different. I had been trying that, but switching between various things I needed to learn wasn't the right way to go about it. I would hit those same walls.

 

I found my old watercolor pencils a few days ago, and I was so excited because I had forgotten those as well. Those are strictly limited to relaxation! No looking at other styles! No trying to learn! It's aaaaall me! So I've spent all week playing with them and it's. Been. Awesome.

 

2. I'm looking forward to Tuesday, which will mark 2 consecutive years of drawing/art every day. I'm happy that it will hit on a good note, instead of previous frustrations. :wub: 

 

3. I think the daily art did its job, and while I will certainly continue with good daily art habits, I'm not going to fuss or stress if I miss a day instead of forcing myself to do more dumb circles! I might even take a day off! What a renegade. :lol:

      It's time again for a year-end roundup of the figures I managed to finish last year. These are the figures I finished during the calendar year of 2018, which was, let me tell you, another ... interesting year.

      I was absent from here for much of 2018 (starting mid-August 2017), but that doesn't mean I wasn't painting. I hope to post a bunch of pics over the next week detailing all the minis I painted before August 2018. March featured a ton of stuff for convention GMing and I also painted a bunch for Tomb of Annihilation. And just whatever I felt like.
      I'm going through stuff elsewhere to see what's been done and soon I'll be posting the list of minis (and also linking to other show-off threads).
