    I like it, definitely space battle vibe there. I also like using stuff just lying around when I get a creative urge.

    Your grandfather looked like a good and decent man, Tom.

    From everything I hear, he was.

    We went to the National Museum of Play in Rochester NY, the last time we went we got a membership. It's only an hour and half away, so not that bad. We can just jump in the car and go.

    They have an arcade in the upstairs, all the classic video games from the 80's and 90's and even a few from today. I could spend all day in it. I played Joust, Dig Dug, the Original Star Wars, they even have a four player PacMan, all four play at one time. However this was fun to play.

    ^ Trekkiedane, you were a cute kid! :)

    Tom, nice photos of your grandfather. I'm so glad you have them, since you didn't get to know him.

    RoJoHen, definitely a space battle. The red side appears to be winning. Looks like you had fun!

    That's a pretty neat painting. I like the choice of colors that you used!

    It was less a choice and more "these are the colors my landlord left in my basement after painting the various rooms in my house." :p

    I can kinda see that... but it's so not what greets me in a mirror.

    RoJo, There's a lot of raw energy and fast movement in that painting... I couldn't have it in a place where I was trying to relax :rofl:

    That's adorable! What a sweet laugh.

    I hope poor Olivia Pig doesn't get torn to bits---by either of them!

    Thanks!

    So, this was pretty groovy: I was walking around in Chelsea trying to figure out how I was going to carry the houseplant and giant 24x36" picture frame I'd just bought for the living room when a photographer came up and said, "I just took my best picture of the day." He said he hoped I didn't mind, and asked my permission to put it on his website. I thought it was pretty cool!

    Congratulations! Didn't you get chosen to be in another photograph or somebody's video shot on the streets of New York a couple of years back? You seem to be in the right places at the right times when it comes to these wandering photographers.

    ^Oh yeah! I forgot about that guy. It was in the summer and he was really into my tattoos. I never saw the pictures he took, though.

    [​IMG]I saw Muse live yesterday, the best gig I've been to and that is say a lot. They played lots of their older songs (including Muscle Museum, Futurism, Plug In Baby and Bliss), they seem to be returning to a heavier style with their new tracks too. Absolutely fantastic, well worth it.
    Apologies for the terrible quality images, my phone's not a camera. ;)

    This is my spring, its 15 degrees and we got 4 inches of snow overnight and it's still snowing.

    On the plus side, I was finally able to swap out the 4gb of Ram to 8gb of Ram and 500gb HD for an 500gb SSD this morning.
