AAAAAARRRGHHHH!

For the love of god, could I please catch a break, just once?

This ends my frustrated complaining for the day.  Thank you for your attention, and we now return you to your regular blog.

Attention.... Your Attention Please...

Pond Central's internet connection is down, but for once it isn't my service provider's fault!  According to them, the powers-that-be one step above them are having problems.  It's supposed to be fixed today (Wednesday), but... yeah, who knows?

I'm at the Old Home Pond as I write this.  Hopefully, I'll be up later today and I can get you some sweet, sweet Ben-To! episodic review.

Or not.  We'll see.

Broken Follow-up

The day never did get any better.  Pointless from the moment I got up (again) to now, just a complete waste of everything that could have been.

I'm trying to keep The Pond from becoming a "Dear Myspace..." column, but it's hard.  Expect some quality this weekend, maybe?  Ben-To! Ep10?  The Buffaloes of Finland?  I have a photoshoot thingy I want to do, but that's really quite involved, surprisingly.

No, not surprisingly at all to anybody who knows me.  Remember the Christmas Carol ducks?  This'll make that rig look like a cardboard box with flashlights stuck in it.  If it's worth overdoing, it's worth really overdoing.

Or it's just as likely I won't get anything done because motivation.  We'll see.

Adventures In Broken Sleep Patterns

Wednesday night, I laid down to take a short nap, intending to get up around 1030pm or so and work on a blog-related matter.  I don't remember turning my alarm clock off, but I must have because the next thing I knew, it was 430 in the morning on Thursday.

That was 90 minutes ago, and I'm going back to sleep.  However, I can honestly say that I've learned something: once people get something in their minds, they'll never believe it isn't true, particularly when you present them with facts.  Perhaps especially when you present them with facts.

Time And Tide

In long-term preparation for a photo project, I had been searching Amazon for a teeny-scale SBD Dauntless model kit.  No, not that small, even smaller.  Nope, smaller than that.  Eventually, I found something that was absolutely perfect: this one from Trumpeter.  Exactly what I was looking for, in fact.  As it's been literally decades since I last put together a model kit, let alone one as... tiny... as that one, and I could envision the need for a larger Dauntless for one or two of the pictures I had in mind, I found another kit that I could practice with. 

Yep, that's right about my speed, even at my best.  Well, that's not entirely the case, but in comparison to Marty Suspenders, I was the flash left on the sprue.  Anyway, while I was adding the kits to my Amazon basket, along with the usual accoutrements required for such an endeavor, it struck me... I didn't need to order this from Amazon, there's a place in Duckford that likely has it all!  So it was with a giddy step and a goofy smile on my face I galumphed my way through the rain to my car.  From there, the destination was clear... ROYAL HOBBY!

Something Really Completely Different

It's been pretty grim around here of late, and for good reason.  To lighten things up a bit, let me introduce you to my latest music/video obsession: World Order!

The music is catchy, but its the dance moves that makes the group stand out.  As an added bonus, their front man, Genki Sudo, is a retired mixed martial arts / kickboxing fighter.

As you can imagine, their live show appears to be quite impressive.  To the point where I've found myself weeping tears of amazement and regret.

If I hadn't failed in grad school, I could have been doing lighting designs like this.  Or not.  Who knows?  There were tears, let's leave it at that. 

Ben-To! Ep09 is forthcoming ASAP.

...And We're Back!

According to the Great and Glorious Pixy, one of the servers that MuNu/MeeNuVia reside upon coughed up a memory module and fell over.

Everything seems to be fixed now, so regular service should resume shortly.  Don't be totally surprised if things go down while gremlins are stomped on.  Thanks for your patience, folks, and all hail Pixy for his efforts on our behalf!  A better webmaster/service provider/guy we could not ask for.

Edit: reticulating splines.

#DayOfDredd

Today, October 1st, is The Day Of Dredd, the day all good citizens of Mega-City One rally in support to see our favorite Judge on the big screen again.  Now, I'll be honest.  I'm not a Dreddhead by any means.  I've read some of the stories, and found it to be particularly British in its flavor, in a way that didn't quite resonate with me.  However, I found the 2012 movie to be very entertaining, and representative (if not 100% accurate) of the Judge Dredd universe.

I'm not asking you to do anything if you don't want to.  However, I am of firm belief that Dredd deserves a good sequel, and if signing the official online petition will help in getting one made, well, there ya go.  You know what to do, or don't do, as you will. 
Go to www.2000ADonline.com/dreddsequel to sign the official petition today.

Then you will sleep the sleep of the peaceful, for you will not stare into the fist of Dredd today.
