6:07 pm - I'm annoyed enough about this that I'm actually updating this thing.
So I watched the coverage of the Napier thing with a great deal of, lets face it, fairly morbid interest. Waiting for pictures of Molenaars cache, I was extremely annoyed to see that the pictures had been photoshopped. And more annoyed to see absolutely no mention of it happening in the media. I can understand why it was done, in some cases. I assume that the large and badly done section on the mattress is to hide blood from the suicide. But there are several other locations as well, some extremely subtle. I dont mind censorship for a good reason, but if that was the case, it would be better if it was big black bars across areas, not attempts to hide something, which is what this photoshopping comes across as, in my mind.

There is the most. Obviously, the edge of the mattress. Whats odd though, is the areas that have been cloned and used to obscure something, dont appear anywhere else on the mattress. I have found other similar components, and where they repeat, but not either of those. Other areas are the picture frame in the top right. That odd rectangle in the top left. The wall in between the two also appears to have some oddities, some bits that look too straight, and are square areas of color, none of the definition the rest of the wall has.

There is less (that I've spotted), but the two ring binder on the bed has had a couple of areas hidden.

I emailed this stuff to one of the talkshow people at newstalkzb, but was at work and unable to listen, but when I tuned in a couple of hours later, heard no mention of it.

So yesterday I went to a dairy while on the road, to get my daily coke fix, I get a headache/the shakes i I dont have any...its probably purely psychosomatic, but hey, who's counting.

Right beside the door was a magazine rack. The top three shelves were secured behind plexiglass doors, and a padlock. Noting this, I took a look at what was in there.

Shelf one: Porn. Plastic wrappers and all.

Shelf two: Same.

Shel three: Same. And gardening magazines.

That must have been some muthafucking *Hardcore* shrubbery pictures in there, let me tell you.

So this site:

http://tvlinks.voodeedoo.org/

Loads TV shows in a flashplayer thig in your brower, thus no need to download them. Has a good selection, but lacks BSG and Veronica Mars. Still, not bad though. Seems up to date with what its does have (ie, parts of S3 of lost).

Back from the Armageddon Tourney. Definitely one of the better ones I've been too, if not the best. Just a day long, didnt run late, very little stupid and annoying waiting (not like some I've been to/run.) And the best news, I won the Best of Faction coin!

Because I was the *only* one of my faction:D

Cheap, but hey, I'll not complain. Only 11 people there, and sadly I ended up with a by. But given I had developed a nasty headache (brought about by a terrible combination of lack of sleep, a mild hangover and thus dehydration), I didnt mind much. Gave me a chance to talk to the *highly* caffeinated _steelphoenix_, whom I think dismissed me as a another freak harrassing her like the bus driver before I introduced myself properly;)

Met lots of other cool people as well, including Chris "Vote Chris Baker for best painted", complete with pointing fingers and cheesy grin. It worked too. Had lots of fun, definitley there again next year. In fact, seems there is one in feb, and I think I'll be there for that. Time to get more painted. Would be painting now, but sadly the house is a damn mess after all the geekery, and I have to do something about it, so I dont go crazy(er).

Still, since work is fucking with me about getting the one day a month off I wanted when the hired me, I might look at heading to the Cityguard now and then. Probably more like then, as its a long way to go for an afternoons gaming.

I'm sure I had something else to put in this, but I cant remember. dammit.

Too much painting not enough sleep.

Almost had a grease fire last night, was trying to tempter the frypan, forgot about it until I smelled smoke.

Made the electric frypan go 'poof' when I filled it with water to tun it on and clean dinner gunge off.

Now it seems the plug I was using isnt working. Dunno how to fix that. All the fuses seem present.

Lots of painting done, lots more to do. will not have a finished army. Still, will have one hell of a lot more painted than I used to.

Fuck. None of the power outlets in the kitchen are working. Should have said, one of the fuses switches was tripped, so I reset it, but nothing seems to have happened.

Not my best day ever.

10:41 pm - I wish I had steamjacks...
Then I wouldnt have to lift heavy things at work.

Stupid Work. Hates it precious.

Anyway. The City guard are hosting a WM tourney this labour weekend, and thus I need to get stuff painted so I can enter (not that its a requirement, I just hate unpainted stuff). And decide what caster to use. Thinking a Vlad list and an Old Witch list. Or Butch. I hear people serious about winning tourneys dont bring butch, but given I've been playing the game for only 8 months, and I'm sure there will be people there who are comparative vets, I dont hold much hope for a win anyway, so I might as well smash stuff with Lola. Plus then I get to show off conversions of both casters. I havent converted Zevanna or Scrapy (or even primered them). I really have a bunch to paint. Dammit.

No real point to this post.

For all you people want to to learn to model 3D stuff on your computador:

You can now download Bryce 5.0 for free. Apparently bug ridden, and hence a ploy to encourage people to upgrade, I figure hey, its a way to learn, cant be all that bad.

Mac link is on the same page.

Thats right, another update! Thanks to Jarrod being the boyband he is:D

To avoid having my eye cut out my fellblade weilding madmen, I painted some more on them. Crappy drybrushing their skin. I wish I had the patience to blend/layer it up nicely, instead of this too dark shadows on pale skin look I have instead. But screw it, at least they arent undercoated color anymore.

Half the damn deliveries I had today had wrong addresses on the docket. None of which were my coworkers fault. Damn customers. Hates them. Hate it when they can barely peak english when I call to find out their real damn address. Stupid job. But still, its paying the bills, and winz can fuck off. Now *thats* hate:D

In other news, my wagaming club is having a painting competition, and I have entered some of my widowmakers. Picture here:
http://steam-and-sinew.greatestjournal.com/
we had to paint them in a month, which given how much free time I actually have, was a mission. Fingers corssed.

Damn, I can think of nothing else.

5:00 pm - Wow...
Its been 9 weeks since I last updated this thing. Yup, I'm slack.

I had work today, and it sucked. Not as bad as some suckage, but hey.

I think I may build some terrain tomorrow, the only question remaining is what? Continue on my river hexes, to go the the shiney bridge I built? Or some buildings, because I'm sick of fighting over goddam hills and forests. Might start small, like a water tower for trains and 'Jacks to refill from. Should be able to accomplish that in a day.

Or I could paint stuff. I have some Doom Reavers saying "Paint us, or we'll cut your fucking eyes out". They are mean like that. Perhaps I should listen.

So my wife is away, and in a fit of lonelyness I decided to watch Season 5 of The Shield that the Excellent Drowninghail sent us (thank you, bcause I hadnt said it yet!).


Only that motherfucker Shane *really* needs Vic to put a bullet in him. Like 15 times.

Hate. Hate. Hate.
