Corporate ass kissing
They re painted an old statue of an oil driller in to the worst super hero / ugliest Elon Musk caricature I've ever seen.
It is disgusting, and sad. And Musk has gone, it seems, full redpill right as of late, so it's extra disgusting.
He has been a pretty obvious shitbag for a while, but these latest moves are especially bad.
I'm looking for some advice.
I want to cover the walls in artwork, but I want to have a touch of Us in that art.
So that means I'm looking for public domain and creative commons science fiction illustrations, comic books, mechanical bits, computer-y bits etc.
I know we'll use some of the 1906 War of the Worlds art, because I love it. I know I'll use the cover to Space Patrol #2 because it's Wonderful.
But ... what else?
That'll do, I guess.
My parts finally showed up. So my plans went out the window.
About to install Ubuntu 19.10
Need to find/buy/build a case.
It's an old xeon e5-2630 on a mini atx motherboard. Last bits arrived today, first bits arrived in January. The world has been unpredictable.
Any benchmarks you'd like to see me try?
Made a mego scale GI Joe as a way to practice eye painting. Getting better at that.
This one has some other flaws, as a result of some less successful experiments, but on the whole I'm calling it a win.
Kitbash'd together a couple of custom toys tonight. We've got an 8" mego scale skeletor, and a Dick Tracy.
Skeletor needs some additional accessories (a belt/sash/loin cloth and a sword) to really drive it home, but I'm genuinely impressed with how good he looks with the simple touches I gave him.
And Dick... Well, he came out okay I guess. Nothing fancy, but it works.
Both will be available on our website soon, I guess.
And we're done
Well that, and getting ready to open a toy store. When this quarantine is over, we'll have a toy store.
This picture is a work in progress shot. It doesn't do justice to the space. I'll get some better ones later.
More home pictures. This place is very me.

Since I have my little rinky dink photo studio set up for doing product shots for #MountainTownToys, I have taken it as an excuse to play with toys from my personal collection. Gives me a chance to practice my editing skills, too.
I got this Mike Hazard for my birthday. He's supposed to be a spy, but I always thought he looked more like a private eye.
So I made him a blade runner.
I write and build stuff.
