    Lol I so called it! Amongst my friends I’ve become the go to guy when someone needs a paper craft thing done so we can make it into a prop or costume. So when my friend posted he got addicted to Skyrim I had a feeling he was gonna come ask me to make the helmet and i knew there was a file for it already. About a week later I get the question. Lol I just find it so amusing that I was able to call it. Well I’m off now. Lots of homework and studying.

    Caution: Toilet Humor



    One of my managers at work yesterday had me nearly on the floor with laughter by smply saying he had a ‘bad case of mudbutt’ and went on to describe his diet for the day which was simply comprised of coffee, sugar, and cookies. Would not have expected such a phrase to come from his mouth…but it did.

    Also, I get a whole 5 days off from work for the Holiday.

    I DON’T have to go back to work tomorrow! The Powers That Be realized that if they made everyone come back to work on Monday, the third shift guys would be back at work right NOW, while it was still January 1st(and technically it IS Monday for them right now) and that that might not be a Good Idea, considering how most of us celebrate New Year’s :wink:

He had steaks going on the grill and I did asparagus and onion rings and now I am full and buzzing from the margaritas….ahhhhhh

    Took Athena to the vet Thursday morning thinking that we would have to have her put to sleep. The vet checked her out and discovered she has really bad knee and hip joint degeneration, but gave us some meds to give her for the pain and in the two days since we’ve been there, she is up and moving and doesn’t cry when she tries to get up. I know that realistically, she IS 12 years old and that is ancient for a rott/black lab mix, but I still have my Athena-wiener with me and she feels better so I feel better. Knowing she would be here at home waiting for me when I got home from work this afternoon was just the best thing ever.

    Had a great day out trooping as The Shadow and promoting and TS pins making it’s way onto my coat. But the best part was this older gentleman was totally surprised to see me but really happy too. He told me he remembers growing up listening to The Shadow on the radio. I was so ecstatic to hear that! And the original Shadow series played on the radio 60 years ago! I felt really happy to bring back a part of this gentleman’s childhood to life and show it is still alive among the younger generation.

    My client, a friend really, likes the helmet I made. Even though it’s weird she asked another one of my friends to make another. Strange…. So happy about that since I’ve done nothing but worrying over it for the last three months but needs more work.

    Now I’m apparently the pepakura guy in my costume group. Which is kinda cool since my friends they practically make professional grade costumes and they like what I make enough to send people my way if they got questions. So yeah that’s cool.

    I never try to push religion onto other people, being that I’ve never really been religious, but I found a spirituality in myself. I’ve decided to become Pagan/Wiccan, though I don’t know which Path I’ll follow because I haven’t researched that far, but whatever I feel is right is actually right with this religion.

    And I’m entirely too used to the HUGE babies that my husband’s family produces–little baby Frye is absolutely tiny compared to them–only 6 and a half pounds when he was born. I felt like I was holding a kitten when I got to hold him–I managed to not have to change any diapers during my visit and I’m physically unable to feed him until my sister decides to start pumping or giving him formula.

    And as for the mustaches pacifier–didn’t get that ordered in time to get to her before my trip–guess he will get it as a Christmas present :)

    What do you do in League of Legends when your pick-up group is bad, and feeds the enemy Ryze Bot? Unleash Hecarim and Sona, this intermediate bot game was insane. Our team was really bad, but still we managed to carry them to victory and rack up a staggering number of kills and assists along the way.

    At the end of the game, my third time playing Sona, I had 8 kills, 3 deaths and 44 assists. My friend whom I was supporting had 48 kills, 9 deaths, and 11 assists.

Because I know when people post a lot of pictures, it really drags on the page and makes it all weird. Having the thumbnail feature really makes a thread open a lot smoother.

    I just finished watching Skyfall.

    Understand, I’ve been watching James Bond movies since I was 5 years old, and my parents never told me to cover my eyes or leave the room while they were on. I’ve been a MASSIVE James Bond fan, and though Casino Royale and Quantam of Solace were good, I just couldn’t help but feel that the reboot of the Bond franchise was taking a nosedive away from its original spirit.

    And now I’ve watched Skyfall, and I can say honestly I am happy once again.

    It’s been a little over a week since I made a slight change to TSU that goes mostly unnoticed by everyone. However, google has updated it’s cache of the site, so that one sentence that Spambots and Sploggers homed in on has vanished from the cache, and thusly, the spam invasion has been reduced to about 99.9% of what it used to be.

  • 1.  Skyrim Dragonborn DLC pre-sale on Steam + confirmed release date of Feb. 5th. (FINALLY!)

     

    2.  Progress on my team’s video game for the 2013 Global Game Jam is rolling along.  I was originally going to be a 2D art person, but our concept took an unexpected turn and we are now going super-experimental and doing an audio-only game with no graphics.  I’m now improvising as the sound person.  Our game page

  • Found a possible loophole in one of the diversifies for the Game Jam.

     

    12. Approved for All Audiences
    The game must not show any violence, not even cartoonish. Stepping on living mushrooms is off the list, as is killing any type of enemies, not even undead, though we know they’re already dead…

     

    Our game is auditory only – no visuals. Commence with the gory death sounds! :p

    Besides, we know we’ll be hitting at least 4 of the diversifies anyway.

     

    EDIT:

    To Turnip with “Approved for All Audiences!”  We have officially gone the creepy ambient route.

    The acetone I ordered arrived. Acetone is essentially nail polish remover, but industrial strength. It’s a solvent that melts ABS plastic. I’m using it to smooth out the prints from my 3D printer.

    One downside. The fumes from it are bloody strong. I’m feeling rather dizzy…… and things are spinning……. my head feels funny……..

    I have promised a good friend (and rival) of mine that I will be their friend forever and I will protect them, no matter what. Even if it costs my life. I told them that if there is anything they need help with, they can come to me and I will help. I will be loyal to them until the day I die. I promised them my life for their happiness.

  • Private A. Gryphon
    Participant

    -warning, sentimental momma bird ahead-

    I went to go see a performance of the wizard of oz. The show wasn’t the best i’ve ever seen and dorothy was a stand-in because the lead got sick, but it was special to me. the scarecrow, Oz, and numerous other of the cast were played by very close friends of mine whom I have’t seen since august. These kids are my adoptive babies, whether they like it or not. It made me so happy to see how much they had grown and achieved in the past few months that there are no words to describe. When I went to give my congrats afterwords, just seeing their eyes light up at the sight of me brought tears. These kids mean more to me than I have the courage to tell them, and were the reason I was able to get up in the morning when I went through some hard times. It makes me so proud to see how much they’re grown and achieved without their momma bird fussing around making sure their hats are straight, or their shows are tied, or that the kid that played Scarecrow had plenty of water because he sweats like a sprinkler. It was a very good day.

    Way back in the mists of time, or as like to call them, the early 90’s, I was lucky to see a stand up comedian preform on a badly taped VHS special. God, how I laughed. But in time all things fade and I totally forgot the comedians name.

    Last night I finally tried to find it again. I had tried this before, but unlike last night, I hadn’t been successful then. This isn’t it, but it is that same comedian and again he had me rolling on the couch in laughter. So, without further ado, I present you with one of the men who inspired me, shaped my sense of humor and keeps me laughing no matter how much times I hear his jokes: Steven Wright.

    Went to the Iowa State Fair yesterday. Ate lots of stuff that is probably(no, IS) bad for me, including a deep fried Twinkie-an actual Twinkie and not one of those generic wannabes-on a stick and got to see the actual Floppy. For those who don’t know, Floppy was a dog puppet host of a local Iowa kids show that was on the air from the mid 1950s to 1987 when Dwayne Elliott, Floppy’s creator(and horrible ventriloquest) died of a heart attack. Every kid in Iowa rushed home from school every day to watch The Floppy Show to see Floppy tell horrible knock knock jokes and watch old Warner Brothers cartoons. He also did special live shows at the State Fair every summer and you were totally the shiz if you got to be on the Floppy Show and tell Floppy a joke.

    There has been a big controversy lately here in Iowa about Floppy and what the State Historical Society has chosen to do with the Floppy display at the museum, which has resulted so far in our idiot governor deciding to bring Floppy to the State Fair to be displayed at the Governor’s booth in the Varied Industries building. Floppy’s plight has even made national ‘news’ with a surprise appearance on the Jimmy Fallon show(ok, it was just a Floppy tshirt, but still, Floppy was on national tv).

    So yeah, getting to see Floppy for realzies was pretty awesome. I even posted a pic on my FB page while wearing my vintage Floppy t shirt. I do think though, that it is time to retire my shirt-it’s a tad tight, and it’s starting to get little holes in it. Of course it’s also probably older than most of the Toy Soldiers, other than those of us FOSSILs…

    Nice one VeeVee!

    What’s the degree in?

  • It’s in General Arts and Sciences.  I’m currently toying with the idea of possibly going back, since Penn State is getting a new minor for Video Game Design, and it will have different “tracks” for the various aspects of game design from software and coding, 3D modeling, graphics/textures/concept art/etc., music and sound effects, marketing, and testing/quality control.  It’s a brand new program that’s just getting started there, and the minor wasn’t available before I graduated.  I’ll have to look into it further in order to see how much money it would cost, though.

    VeeVee, that’s awesome!  Congratulations!  What made my WEEK was learning that my FAVORITE synthesizer company in the whole world is coming out with a NEW 37 key synthesizer!  And it has a WHOLE BUNCH of new features my Little Phatty is lacking, like a name that doesn’t sound like a drug or sexual reference.  And that’s just the beginning!  It has more knobs, more buttons, more features than ANYTHING else in its price point, INCLUDING the Dave Smith offerings.  A truly amazing synth.  Two days ago I prepaid for one.  It won’t be released until this spring, but that gives me time to sell the old Little Phatty and save enough money to pay for it.  Only three easy payments!  Sub 37, here comes Voltor!laugh

    We’ve NEVER raised that much money, for one charity, that fast.

    Nothing beyond the standard glitches one would expect from a minecraft marathon occured!

    And now I hear the Disneyland invasion on the west coast was a rousing success as well.

    It’s been a brilliant weekend and a brilliant start to the week, and now (since it turned midnight as I write this) the Army of Toy Soldiers and Toysoldiersunite.com IS EIGHT YEARS OLD!

    Celebrate, Toy Soldiers, you’ve earned it!

  • I finally finished painting my first set of 2.5-dimensional dungeon tiles for my D&D/Pathfinder group.  They’re made from cardboard scraps that would have been thrown away at work, hot glue, and paint.  The edges are raised in areas in order to represent walls without getting in the way like they would if they were full size, as it can be tricky to navigate minis through narrow passages if the walls are too high.

And to have contact with the customers when they supply new orders to make sure we get the right components for them. Also checking the PCB layouts when a customer provides them.
