Randomness XVI: Brains versus Bleach - an Epic Rap Battle in Iambic Pentameter.

Recommended Posts

Okay, I managed to log onto work, and IMMEDIATELY got into a call with one of my bosses!! :lol:  Anyway, after I got off the call, managed to actually get some work done. And no, we didn't video chat. 

 

Now I need to go get in line to go to the grocery store... *sigh* Better an hour wait now, than 3+ over the weekend.

yeah the line at shoprite was absurd yesterday, so I gave up and went to lidl instead. It had just opened before this whole thing started so no one seems to realize it exists.

the selection isn't as good, but being able to walk in get stuff and leave in under a half hour is worth it.

I wonder if Skype can do that. I've tried Skype twice. 

 

Do you need a green screen?

FaceRig does a decent job of it, assuming you don't wear glasses.

I would like universities to start using it again.

 

Plus i think it would be revenge against people who have insulted me for using SL.

Man I miss hitting up SecondLife on a regular basis, but after you've had a Sim (and rather enjoy building) it gets difficult to not have your own place to kick back and relax on... 

 

I remember that dream they all had, that of massive online campuses on SecondLife. They lasted for a decent amount of time, even if they were mainly glorified "come to our university rl!" type places.

Even in our relatively sparsely populated part of the country a trip to the nearest WincCo involves waiting in line, with measured distancing stripes on the sidewalk.

I do have to admit that once in the store the freedom of movement allowed by limiting the number of people into the store makes for a much faster shopping trip.

On balance, I will be extremely happy once this whole virus thing burns it self out.

Well, most of the snow has melted before I could wake up and build some snowmen. There seems to be some kind of barrier around Yorkville in regards to storms, they always seem to pass by us by a narrow margin. Missed out on three so far this year. Is this a side effect of the high radon content of the ground water? Or the insidious need of the channel 7 news team to foil my every plan, even when I try to throw them a solid? Or are my attempts being interfered with by one of the neighbors with a twisted agenda to keep the area bright and sunny?

Errr.  I had to clean up a computer from one of our techs who was fired and he had a second life account...  There are things I don't want to know about people; I would have to say there are some really bad neighborhoods in that AR.

Yup.

 

A University i used to go to irl has a set of sims on there,but they seem to have left it empty. I know the US Army even had a set of sims,but they closed it down and went to opensim or something.

I'm having a "some people should be shot" sort of day. I won't go into that, though. 

Despite it being a big don't do this part of our and our biggest competitor's documentation regarding wash codes on our car wash systems, it seems that about 1 out of 10 car wash owners/managers like to set their personal wash codes to 12345 

I just discovered another one today. 

And given the way the rest of the morning went, that has inspired me to tell all of you.   Seriously, if these owners are stupid enough to use that as their personal wash code, despite being warned not to, why should I care if the rest of the world discovers it? 

So the next time you pull up to a car wash, before you swipe your card, enter your code or pay your money, try typing in 12345   - if you get a free wash, congratulations, you've discovered a stupid car wash owner/manager. 

BTW, while I won't disclose exactly where I've found these codes before, I will reveal that today's discovery was at a site in a small town within a hundred miles of the Mississippi river.

You have to register on Twitch, join the chat and enter "#free" there.  As far as I know, you don't need to be a subscriber to win.   They'll do the giveaway probably near the end of the Bones 5 Live stream.  Justin announced they've reached the goal.  Good luck if you enter the giveaway!

      Congratulations, by opening this forum post, you have received a quest!
      This quest is a challenge created by the combined forces of @Sirithiliel the Queen Tiamacrab, a Wizard Most Wild @Pezler the Polychromatic, and myself – @Cyradis the Questgiver.
      The challenge is this! Paint a small dragon, letting the dice control the colors!
      The Rules:
      Post in the WIP Forums “_Your Pseudonym_ is taking the random rainbow dragon challenge!” or “_Your Pseudonym_ has accepted the d20 rainbow dragon quest!” something to that extent.

      Select a figure from one of the following: Stormwing (from Bones III), Kryphrixis (from Bones III), Deathsleet (77110), or Ebonwrath (77102).

      You must select the dragon BEFORE rolling for colors. Take a photo with the figure and a clock as proof of order of operations.  
      Roll for colors! Use a d20 and a photo, or an online dice roller with a screenshot as proof of rolling. Or have a fellow forum dweller vouch for your rolls. Use the Color Chart below to determine what the color is that you rolled. There are three rolls. Below is an online dice roller. Most keyboards have a PRT SCRN button that can take a screenshot for you. Then you can paste the photo into Paint to save. I'm sure there are better methods, but that works for me. 

      https://www.wizards.com/dnd/dice/dice.htm

      The first roll determines what your primary base color is. That must be the dominant color on the figure.

      The second roll determines your secondary color. It should be the second color that catches the eye, and second most prevalent color on the figure.

      The third roll determines your miscellaneous color. This should be most of the accent colors that you use, and third most prevalent color on the figure.

      You might need to order paint or go to the FLGS after rolling if you don’t have a given bottle – we’ll be patient and wait for you. If you can’t get a bottle of one of these colors, here is a spreadsheet with equivalent colors from different brands. If you really can't get them, use the closest thing you got to your rolls (let us know what they are please).

      Pure White
      Super white. Critical threat!
       
      You are allowed to use whatever colors to shade and highlight that you want, as long as the rolled colors are obvious visually.* Example: you can shade a red dragon with purple, brown, or black, but it must always appear as a red dragon. A white dragon shaded with grey must appear as a white dragon, not a grey dragon.   
      You are allowed to use colors outside the ones that you rolled, but they must not take up more visual surface area than any of the others.** Example: your pink, green, and gray dragon is allowed to have bone-beige teeth.  
      The proportions of color on the figure can be however you want, as long as the 1st roll is dominant, 2nd is less, 3rd is less, and anything else smaller. Example: 70% pink, 15% green, 10% gray, and 5% anything else. Or it could be 50% pink, 25% green, 15% grey, and 10% anything else. The tidbit colors are fine wherever, as long as they are minor. 
        Paint your dragon according to the rolls plus your tidbits. Even if it is outrageous. The goal is to make the dragon look as awesome as possible without the benefit of planning color themes. You can add spots, stripes, eye-spots like moths have, or nothing. This is the base challenge. 
        Star 1* You may decide after your initial three rolls to limit your shading colors to your rolled colors mixed with pure black and white. You may still use tidbit colors. Declare this if you go for a Star 1 challenge!
        Star 2** You may decide after your initial three rolls to not use colors outside of your rolled ones and shading colors (so no tidbits like beige teeth, only 3 visual colors shaded however you want). Declare this if you go for a Star 2 challenge!
        Star 3*** You may decide to do both the Star 1 and Star 2 challenges, using absolutely nothing but your three rolled colors, plus black and white for shading. If you do this, you are allowed to use the white for areas like teeth and eyes that could be really weird otherwise (or not - up to you). Effectively, you have 5 colors to work with only, and three of them must be the majority (in decreasing order of prevalence). You gotta be nuts!
        There is no time limit on this. However, if the WIP photos stop showing up at a normal rate and there’s never a Show Off thread, the forum dwellers may gently poke fun at you for adding this to your Shelf of Shame.
        Post to the Show Off forums with a “_Your Pseudonym_ has completed the random rainbow dragon challenge!” sort of title upon completion. Brag about your awesome (or hilarious) dragon. Win all the internet-points. Receive experience and praise. Thus shall end the quest.
        Once the first Random Rainbow Dragon has been completed, we will start up a group Show Off thread to compile all of the dragons in a great flock of rainbowy goodness.

    • By WhiteWulfe
      After seeing my first thread on it (I think it was @Glitterwolf's thread for such an honour) my first thought was pretty much "that looks like a LOT of fun", followed closely by "but I've never painted anything other than a few Space Marines!".  Yeah, well, challenge accepted, because I kind of fell in love with how Ebonwrath looks.
       
      Yup, I'm going into this technically with very little skill in painting, but while I'm waiting for Ebonwrath (and some gnolls and paint, gnolls are the honour guard for the paint, I swear) I'll have both of the learn to paint kits to work through, and assuming everything pans out (aka assuming I filled out my Canada Post FlexDelivery stuff correctly) I'll be picking those up after work today, and then about a week and a half (ish) later Ebonwrath will be in.  Seems like a semi-insane thing to do, dive right into painting a dragon when you originally were getting paints to steadily work on your WH40k Catachans army (and Skaven, sooooo many Skaven o_O ), but I figure why not have fun with life.  Besides, what better to put all the new skills the LTPK's are designed to help you get a baseline grasp on than a gigantic dragon of cuddles DOOOOOOOM that, in my eyes at least, can be bribed with cookies.
       
      Some say I'm insane, I say to be a good delivery driver you need just enough insanity...  Not enough to pass the entrance exams, but enough to be perfectly fine wearing shorts in -5C weather.  :P
       
      Anyways, onto the rolls!
       
       

      I wound up rolling 14, 19, and 3....  So Terran Khaki as the main, Pure Black as the secondary colour, and Lava Orange as a highlight.  Well now, that's an interesting mix in my eyes.  I'm not quite certain as to how this mix will pan out, but on the flipside I chose to dive into this headfirst, so I'm also going to give it a whirl as a full on three star challenge.  I'm actually kind of liking the sound of these colours, as I've had a number of different design possibilities come to mind already!
       

      Obviously, given the current promo and Rictus seeming like a nice and dedicated, honourable skeleton, I had to get a few other items into the cart for free shipping (plus a free skeleton!), and for someone to keep the gnolls in check while Ebonwrath is napping away in it's blister pack.  Can't let the gnolls steal the cookies after all.  Pure Black is included in one of the Learn To Paint Kits, so I didn't add it into the order from Reaper.
       
      Here's hoping I won't have to make too too much room in my gaming area to work on Ebonwrath ^_^;;;;; (since it's still another two months before I can get a dedicated miniatures area set up, but man am I looking forward to such!)
       
       
      EDIT (Jan 7th @ 15:44 MST): Totally forgot to add this in...  For additional information regarding the rainbow dragon challenge, here's the main thread for it!
      (end edit)

      Link to original challenge: 
      I don't have any of the dragons selected for the challenge. I do have the dracolisk, https://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/basilisk/latest/77379
      So I'm painting that. 
       
      Die roll, 13, 18, 2.  Earth brown, palomino gold, clotted red.   Good colors.  I don't have the Earth or Clotted Red but can approximate. 
       
      Baby needs a bath first.

      So I decided to do this random dragon challenge thing.
       
      My rolls.

      Main 20 9039 Pure White
      Secondary 6 9227 Brilliant green
      Miscellaneous 10 9023 Imperial Purple
       
      And my intent is to do the 3 star challenge, I was planning this before rolling.  Interesting colors, I have the pure white but not the other two.
       
      The arrival of Deathsleet with his Halloweeny reinforcements, and the missing two paints.

       
      And here he is ready for the paint.

       
      I started with giving him a primer of brilliant green cut with 2-3 times as much pure white.
