well, the “almost” winter update post…
Yeah, so I might have started on a few too many projects at the same time here. Main problem is mostly the really tight space I’m working in though, that and not having the right materials for some them. Camera is badly in need of an upgrade.
Things are coming along fine despite that however, tried out a couple different fabrics mostly from old clothes, the couple different inks and paints I had available, and played around with various ways with which to combine them for different styles of banners, flags, and patches. Ultimately, I hoping to have one really kickass folding wall to use as a room separator, but for now most are hanging in the doorway of that short passage towards the closets and exit. I’m still considering how exactly I’m going to make, and what with, the frame for that. I was thinking 3-panels, close to like the wooden one I have right now. Had found it cheap in a thrift store, a few rips in the panels that are made of thick paper. I could just use the wood from that, but it’s warped in some places, broken in a couple, and I’d rather start another from scratch and keep this one too.
Music is doing alright, much better than those few clips I scarcely upload. Not practicing enough though to get through that 1h+ setlist now, without pause or significant mistakes. I’d need to focus full-time on technique for a bit, and seriously, like on a rigorous schedule and all, to get over this hurdle.
Haven’t reached 50 in the bound books yet. I have a bunch in various stages of construction. At this point, I’m pretty much saving that for elsewhere. As in outside, so going to have for warmer weather to come back around. I’ve lugged a few around a couple times these past months, but didn’t end up in a situation where I could just sit there and finish to half-hour or so of work left to them. Having a trip to the library to do just that is what’s lined up in that department, or somewhere chill I don’t have to spend anything. At least, until the warmer weather roll back around and I can do it in the parks.
I’m a little snowflake
It’s cold out
Here is a picture
of my hat
Slowed down quite a bit in the drawings as well. It’s pretty much on the back burner for now. Haven’t digitized anything since bda 22. It’ll probably wait until after I fix up the gallery for them on the blog. That’s vaguely the goal for the coming days: fix up the gallery section and update the links page to include more of the online places I regularly have a look or listen at. I’ve added a lot of new docs and podcasts to my playlists, so there’s quite a bit I could add up there too.
Couple other picnic trips, mostly just to walk around and show off the flags as I finished painting them, eh… you know, just casual Friday stuff, mostly Saturdays in this case tho… pigs aren’t much of a party out here, depends on the weather mostly and who happens to be working the demos near parliament on any particular given day. Mostly just chill and quiet this time of year.
I’ll try and fit a couple cat pics in there while I’m at it. Just wanted to give you an update on things over here, whoever you are there reading this. Winter solstice is upon us once more, a new year is on the horizon. May it have good things in store for you.
Pizza, tacos, feather toys, ya know, burning riot cops dancing to killer beats, dead nazis and shit like that
A pink triangle triforce skull, with assorted head-studded peacock feathers and jingle bells earrings, bag banner:
Pigs chased us out of their jurisdiction last Saturday, all the way out into Battlefields Park, after our morning picnic in front of the National Assembly, in so called Québec City. The mighty morphing fascist furries had reservations there for part of the afternoon.
Here, a pink triangle triforce skull banner (with matching studded peacock feathers and jingle bells earrings) is waiting for them to skedaddle outta the way so it can approach the racist rally unimpeded. Which eventually happened, after this barricade cleared out, along with the surveillance in the area around the gate, it managed to moved up to some few yards away from the meutons’ procession, right down the middle of a deserted street, as they were going round the fountain to escape the area. (if anyone has pics from that part, please do send me, thx)
(dafuq!? they caption that as if we right wing? crazy nutters)
Look at that dude here, strolled around all day with that … thing, and a heavyish metal chair that folds up to look kinda like a mini-gun, and only got controlled once by 5.0 (tripods can work too, they’re just not as comfy). I mean, folks need to get a tiny bit creative around here. Even got to taunt the pups and their beasty buddies as they tailed on out, and then still free to use the space and sit down for another snack. The banner’s bag had enough water and food, including power bars, to last for days, but cause the weather being real shitty and all, and seeing as no one else seemed to have been either willing or able to stick around to share it with, back home we went.
Very sad about all those detained and arrested. How rude. Even some just there by happenstance. Not cool.
And for what?
So a bunch of fascist fuckbags can take a piss and dump in the pond, whilst their spokespersons do the shitshine show to distract media from their far-right extremist allegiances, with truth-obfuscating, deceptive drivel, and pointless, impertinent rhetoric. 44 arrested comrades, and all the while they admitting no one got hurt and no material damage was cause. Wtf!?
Oh, and although snowball riot was fucking awesome, we should take notice that their police riot gear and shields offer excellent protection against small caliber ice projectiles. Will need to level up those, or come up with better plan for next time.
Hey là, vous le witch bloc, on vous trouve sacrément hot
Léonard is a cat, an anarchat. Foren, Forar, ch47th (that’s C-H-4-7th) felis catus summoner of fur and creator of graphic content matter.
Feels like I haven’t done one of these things since like forever… the iFan being rather dull (still squeaks alot when its head turns side to side, shitty 1. releases…) and the iFridge getting a rather cold reception.
Anyway, this new blade looks way better than the old one. Plus it’s new, ish. It was left behind in a boutique and found by the new owners. It traces back to some generic mass production line in Taiwan, there’s a little thing with the color in the handle and a little loose in the metal fixture covering where the blade sinks in the handle, but it snaps shut just snug and tightly, and is surprisingly sharp (despite being described as “unsharpened”… not much far from razor like, sure)! Small indentations in the wood finish at the top and bottom ends, and a little scrape near the tip on one side of the sheath, likely from regular hanging and repeated pick-up and put-backs. Seems well balanced and will produce a satisfying swooshing sound under the appropriate circumstances.
It’s much sharper than it’s smaller counterpart, which shows signs of use along the blade and has taken much damage including an impact leaving the odd bend in the lower half of the handle grip. I’ll just put the shorter one on the shelves back where it was, the longer one doesn’t fit there no how, and this way not much changes in the decor of the apartment. And it just looks great there.
tell me, which one will you grab for first, the chest or the sword ?
Or just send pizza, that’ll work too, I still like the pizza.
Wasn’t planning on this, turns out real nice though. Here’s the page I was putting the finishing touches on today before I dun got distracted by the new steel.
