Getting to Know You; July 2020 by TaleSpinner

Recommended Posts

FaceBook: Andrew Pieper;  Please note that I tend not to post much and use it mostly to connect with the mini community and clients as a sculptor/printer.  As such, I tend to avoid making any sort of political commentary; so if you are offended by people not taking a stand in your cause, I guess I'll be offensive in my FB inaction.

 

Instagram: but I seldom check it and almost never post.

 

Discord: I am TaleSpinner on there.  I am somewhat active on Reaper's Discord server, but usually live streaming in the evenings when i am sculpting as I just can't follow and reply to all the text feeds and still be productive. 

 

Google Hangouts:  Once or twice a week I'll join the peeps from here on Google Hangouts as it is a different crew than those on Discord.

Facebook mainly & even then I don't post that much anymore (you can thank the pros & cons of today's political/social environments for that). Randy Mendoza on Facebook if you'd like to add me as a friend.

 

I'm on Discord, but I have no idea what user I'm on it. I joined earlier this year to keep up with my FLGS & such. I'll find out soon thou, as I'm planning a game for RCon this year!!

 

Other then that I'm not much into social media.

Feel free to leave your identities on each if you want people here to connect with you there.

 

Facebook although I'm not very active there. Use it for a few games related groups and to keep in touch with people I don't normally communicate with much. Other than that a few different game/mini related forums. Mostly keep my opinions on politics, religion and any other touchy subjects to myself no matter what the medium.

No thanks :D

 

I'm pretty strict about who I let into my sharing circle. Those of you in it should feel privileged but those who I haven't accepted should not feel snubbed. I just keep it really tight, and even then I still weed the list about once a year or so.

Though recently I've taken a huge step back from social media. I don't like a lot of the effects it's having, from a personal (family members) to a societal level.

Federal Jury Duty, though I did just find out that I am back in the juror pool.

Ffffft. Heh. Bwahahahahaaaa...

 

I haven't updated my LinkedIn in 5 years. I don't even remember what my name was.

 

I'm not on Facebook. I'm still waiting for my FacePalm invite. I'm not on Twitter. I don't use my Discord for public interaction. Once work starts up again my Twitch account will become worthless.

 

I prefer antisocial media.

I think social media had a good purpose for keeping in touch with extended family and friends, but that's definitely not what it seems to be nowadays.

 

You can find me as Morihalda Silversage on most sites and games, but it's really just to hold the name. :) I'm not active much.

 

The easiest way to chat with me is direct message on discord -- it's on my phone! Morihalda#8050 

 

I'm in many discord groups but I keep most muted so I can check on my own time. I love discord, I've been using it for years, but the larger servers are overwhelming.... I do love to chat with friends. I just prefer smaller group interactions. :)

On Facebook as Kevin Collier, look for an antique revolver on the header.

 I used to have a FarceBook page, because you apparently needed one at one time to actually read anything on the internet... But it was entirely blank, and I had used Mad Jack as the name on it, so FarceBook apparently suspended my account when they decided everyone had to use real names. I actually made several attempts to get it reactivated with my real name on it, but despite jumping though all their hoops and even talking to a live person, they wouldn't just change the name on the damn page. I then tried to create a new page with my real name, but they refused to let me because there was already a page linked to the email address I was using.  :rolleyes:

There was no way in hell I was going to get another email address just to get on FarceBook, so I said screw it...

While I have a number of accounts elsewhere, I'm not really active on any of them.

On Twitter, I am @ManVsMini. I don't post much, but once things get rolling again I will. It's mostly a mish-mash of my love of combat sports, pro-wrestling, and miniature related stuff. Most pics will probably be of any projects I am working on.

 

On Youtube I am also ManVsMini, and hope to get some videos put up at some point (probably not painting, but definitely hobby-related at some point). Same goes for Twitch. Right now I have a huge internet speed issue (issue: the speed was good for the year 2010, not so good nowadays for multiple household users), so I don't really use that or Hangouts.

 

I also don't post anything political to any account, because politics is best discussed in person and not when you are sitting on the toilet tweeting because you have diarrhea... so if you see anything political show up on those accounts, I've been hacked, and please let me know.

Not really. Lots of things I was looking forward to.

July 6: Gobbos! What are your favorite goblin models? What is your favorite goblin model ever? Discuss...

Goblinaid had a gobbo in a flying machine. I’ve never put it together, but it’s pretty cool.

Thank you @TGP: I really meant to be here yesterday., but I was on furlough and being away from the computer is the one sure way for me to forget.  I'm back to a regular schedule for the rest of July, AFAIK.

 

July 7: Have you ever used a real creature for color scheme inspiration, if so what?

Yes. Rainbow boa for some pants, owls for owls, bears for bears, etc.. The pants are the most interesting one.

Well, they cancelled the rodeo here. From what I’ve heard, the population of the town triples during rodeo (I’m not sure how that’s possible, there’s not that many hotels). I wasn’t planning on going, but not dealing with that kind of traffic is a relief.

I mean, I have some accounts, but I rarely use them. I’m too busy with my real life most of the time, and I don’t have the emotional energy to deal with it.
