I don't have to tell you what day today is, do I?
In the midst of all the other randomness - it will be my wife's birthday tomorrow, and the saddest one of her life. If anyone has any pointers on how to deal, please feel free to share.
Almost an hour in this empty phone mine before I get to go home.
Ok, @James.k.Polk , you wanted to see the finished product. Here you go. One for each grandparent, one side is "Love you, Dad" (or Mom) and the other is the signature. I put the white paper behind one so you could see, it's sort of faint just on the glass.
Alright guys, I'm stepping out for a bit. If I don't talk to you before, I'll see you around this weekend in the thread.
Finished Illustration. This concludes Dr.Gonzo's drawing and illustrating clinic.
This is about a month old. It's kind of funny, a little scary. But I also think it's odd the writer of the story tried to contact both the airport and the company that produced the app for a comment, as if they were somehow involved in this.
and I'm back. I went Christmas shopping and came back with a bag full of nothing. Oh well. I guess I'll be buying from amazon.ca
Bought my Christmas present yesterday. Now with a little practice, my career in vigilantly justice can begin.
You have failed this city
I'm pretty happy today. It's our last working day before we close for the holiday, and we don't come back until Jan. 2. And I'm leaving at 2, and 2 hours of this day will be our Christmas party/brunch.
@James.k.Polk How's the weather there? It's been raining here since about 4, became freezing rain. I have icicles on the roof.
@rkwsuperstar @James.k.Polk very elegant! I once did something similar with glass etching compound.
I bought some glass coffee mugs and some alphabet stickers. I wrote the word "coffee" on the mugs, outlined it with scotch tape, and painted it with the etching compound. Then remove the tape and the letters and presto! "coffee" branded mugs
@Dr.Gonzo82 I know it's a drink in your avatar picture, but every time I see it, I think it's a shoe.
Love it. One small criticism/suggestion? Erase the eyebrow portion behind the bangs.
@Dr.Gonzo82 Wow, well donehttp://i.imgur.com/l6EiXEC.gif
@kegs 'sok. I bought a new humidifier for my BiPAP machine. It cost me the $200 I would have used to buy a drawing tablet thingie that I would have used to more efficiently draw little aliens.
@Patch999Aim for flying venison!
@Patch999 Where the hell's the boxing glove arrow? You NEED the boxing glove arrow.
That's bad ass. What I've wanted a bow for a while now. My buddy has one and we go shooting here and there. What is the weight?
@rkwsuperstar I really need to get out of sales.
@James.k.Polk"I am the eggman, they are the eggmen.I am the walrus, goo goo g'joob."
"John Lennon was the walrus.I could be the walrus. I'd still have to bum rides off people."
@rkwsuperstar @James.k.Polk Rained a bit earlier. Got cold. My boss thinks I'm crazy because I don't own a coat.
@James.k.Polk@rkwsuperstar At the last con I attended I bought two shot glasses, one had the blue sun logo and the other had the timelord symbol on it. Very nice. I'm looking into starting to do something similar.
HA! That's awesome.. it looks like a drink in the larger image.
Dr.Gonzo..shoe fetishist extraordinaire!
I thought someone was giving you one?
It's being developed in my secret lair, along with the boomerang arrow, and glue arrow
It maxes out at 70. It's a nice set up. I'm a lefty but learned to shoot righty because that was what was available. This is my first left handed bow and after shooting a bit this morning, I like it.
The walrus was Paul.
@Dr.Gonzo82 @James.k.Polk They Might Be.
@kegs@James.k.Polk@rkwsuperstar I did wineglasses for a friend's wedding. I printed the first letter of the last name off in a fancy font, put the paper in the glass, and painted it (basically tracing it).
Aaaaaah.....Pumps and stilettos...
I've got an old one.. and I'm not sure it's working right. Could be that it doesn't work with Win 7. I've no clue. Even if it works, it ain't the best.. but let me know..
@James.k.Polk @Dr.Gonzo82 @kegs 'Sides, Kegs said he had 2 and he wasn't using them, right? I see no reason to feel guilty.
@James.k.Polk @Dr.Gonzo82 @kegs I have a motto for that, "Never offer something you don't mind losing". I don't feel guilt taking things that are offered to me. Art is a different thing, since that takes time, but I've had no trouble when people offer things to me when I haven't know them for long.
@Dr.Gonzo82 @James.k.Polk @kegs he offered, but I hate to take something like that not knowing if I'll even be able to make use of it.
@rkwsuperstar@Patch999@kegs Super Villain Bad Idea Number 1. Volcano Lair
Oh sure, it sounds great and your heating bills are non-existant, but IT"S A VOLCANO... aka...
@Patch999@kegsIs it a secret volcano lair?
@Dr.Gonzo82 @louieatrest @Patch999
Had to change the oil in my truck. I had old metal pins on my old bow. So I never would have thought to throw a light on the bow to to see the pins.
But as I get older my eyesight might need the help.
lol. looks like a rangefinder to me.
Oh yeah. Most of them these days have the sights that will glow when light hits them. The level however, that is just fancy and cool as shit.
Yeah but I'm still getting used to it. I sold my bow more than 15 yrs ago. Always shot with a glove, no peep sites, just draw and shoot.
This thing has a light for the pins, built in level. I agree it's pretty bad ass. Clearly there have been a lot of changes since last I shot.
I enjoyed it. I've only shot around 45 because I'm a noob and wanted to adjust before jacking up the weight. I was fairly decent though. You got a quick release?
OMG HE'S JUSTIN BIEBER!!
@Dr.Gonzo82@kegs@James.k.PolkGreat character.. terrible role model.
@Dr.Gonzo82 @James.k.Polk @kegs I think that's why the theory that Ferris is simply an imaginary friend Cameron dreamed up is getting so much traction.
(Amounts to the idea that Cameron is emotionally abused by his dad and escapes into a fantasy world where he has cool friends who get away with shit.)
AND EVERYONE LOVED IT. It's ridiculous.
@Dr.Gonzo82 @kegs @James.k.Polk
You mean an entitled rich kid who manipulates everyone around him so he gets away with doing shit that would get a regular kid arrested?
Yeah..Yeah, Ferris Bueller is a terrible character.
@Dr.Gonzo82@kegs@James.k.Polk I find it right that the character would get his trivia wrong.
I find it odd that John Hughes would get his Beatles trivia wrong.
BANGERS AND MASH!
FISH AND CHIPS!
@Dr.Gonzo82@kegs@James.k.Polk It's not an excuse it's an explanation.KNOW THE DIFFERENCE!!
@Dr.Gonzo82@kegs@James.k.Polk I was quoting Ferris Bueller.
Bing Crosby and Hash is the music of the future.
@Dr.Gonzo82 @James.k.Polk Just because you listen to grandpa music like Bing Crosby and Hash or whoever, does not invalidate my musical tastes.
....Oh I said it.
