Getting to Know You, June 2018


Recommended Posts

Surprise. It's me. I'm the next Quisitor too. ::D:

 

The obligatory roolz posting:

 

1. Every day, or so (unless I am out or ill or something) I will post a question.

1.5. If I fail to post a question, Inara (possibly) will post a question of her own choice.
2. In theory there is a 24 hour span to answer that question before the next question is posted.
2.5. (Rule 2 is the most frequently ignored rule.)
3. Questions are going to be posted between 6AM and 8AM EST
3.5 (Rule 3 may be the 2nd most broken rule.)
4. Everyone is encouraged to suggest future questions to be posted via PM to me. 
5. You do not have to answer every question to play...
6. If a question is TMI or N/A simply wait for the next question.. ..or post that you decline to answer (clues regarding why are always fun).
7. Weekend questions may take the form of two or three day challenges, often starting on Fridays.

 

I will be posting late the night before as I won't be awake super early in the morning.

June 1: What are some of your personal or funny mondegreens in film, songs, or other media?

 

A mondegreen is a mishearing of a phrase and substituting similar sounding words so the phrase makes sense. 

 

Thanks, pinkymadigan!

Edited by Morihalda
I should probably add a date to this.

UB-40 - Take me by the Hand.

 

Due to this guy's accent I can't help hearing: Take me by the Ant.

My favourite is in a song by Clannad.  The lyrics are in Gaelic, so I don't know what they are really saying, but to me it sounds like:

 

We will eat yer budgie!

Weasel stomping music, weasel stomping music.... 

 

Tune to "Please don't stop the music" by a hiphop/pop singer who is the reason I have to make rules on the syllabus regarding the correct spelling of my name.

June 2 and 3: Which paint in your collection do you use the most?

Bonus! Try using the opposite color this weekend/next time you paint!

 

Thanks, Xiwo Xerase!

 

Probably Nightshade Purple. It isn't the one that gets used by highest area, but it seems to work its way onto every model. Its opposite? Like... Linen White? I use that one a lot too already!

Currently it's Citadel Macragge Blue spray to cover my Ultramarines, but after that it would be Citadel Retributor Armour (shiny gold!). I have a lot of work to do.

Almost every figure I paint gets Brown Wash applied somewhere. But then I do use a lot of browns and grays, so it's somewhat fitting there. I also find it useful when toning blonde hair down a bit. It also gets used on metals and other colors of clothing for a used/dirty effect.

Linen White is another that I abuse often since when lightly washed with Rainy Gray it is perfect for white clothing.

Stormy Gray and Rainy Gray probably rival the Brown Wash in terms of constant use.

As to the opposite, that would probably be somewhere in the pastel range and will have to wait until I get around to my ideas concerning machine gun armed fairies and other potted plant friends.

Black & white: I do a black wash then a white dry brush on EVERYTHING  I paint.

Not a single color, but I tend to use a lot of dark colors in my painting (this makes sense for bad guys, sometimes not so much for good guys).

I will attempt to do the bonus (hopefully later on today).

      The rules: as they were last month (in addition to all regular forum rules) except where I sneakily changed them:
       
      1. Every day, or so (unless I am out or ill or something) I will post a question. †
      1.5. Should I be unable to post a question for the day, a crack team of deputy quisitors, former quisitors, and random forum members are all chomping at the bit to step in and post one... ††
      2. In theory there is a 24 hour span to answer that question before the next question is posted.
      2.5. (Rule 2 is the most frequently ignored rule.)
      3. Questions are going to be posted sometime before 1 AM Reaper time (US Central).
      4. Everyone is encouraged to suggest future questions to be posted via PM to Talespinner or Morihalda… 
      5. You do not have to answer every question to play...
      6. If a question is TMI or N/A simply wait for the next question.. ..or post that you decline to answer (clues regarding why can be fun...unless TMI).
      7. Weekend questions may take the form of two or three day quests, starting on Friday or Saturday.
      8. Pix always welcome.
       
       
      The first question will need to be posted after a brief (10 minute) pause to foil the merging of posts.
      The footnotes, because I can't resist doing †††footnotes:
       
      † I will aim for 0600 Reaper/Nottingham time.
      ††  If subs and backstops could wait until 11AM in Reaper/Denton's timezone to see if I remember.
      ††† …because I re-remembered how to do the dagger ( † ) symbol.
