      An update on the build of the kit from this weekend:

      Day 2 consisted of adding on the exterior armor on the chest piece, building the head, then adding the all the decals for the the chest and head. Today's work took about 2 hours.

      Added on the armor.

      The door to the cockpit opens up.

      Put on the decals which takes freaking forever.

      Couldn't get a good picture, but build the head. Hard to notice but painted the eyes and other green areas.

      Hard to notice from the previous picture, but started panel lining which adds depth.

      Day 2's progress.

      Day 3 consisted of just building the shoulder pieces, which took about an hour.

      Built shoulder blades, then the shoulder.

      Added the decals then connected to the rest which shows Day 3's progress.

      Well, anyway in case you didn't know Tuesday was my birthday (again thank you all who wished me birthday). So one of the gifts I received from my girlfriend was a model kit from one of my favorite series as a kid, Mobile Suit Gundam Wing. I don't do model kits that often, but when there's a kit that looks awesome I just have to pick it up. The next few journals will document the work process of building this kit.

      Now a few pictures...

      1/100 MG Deathscythe Hell Custom EW and the box.
      IMG_20110302_212457.jpg

      What's inside the box.
      IMG_20110302_212523.jpg

      19 runners, 3 sheets of decals.
      IMG_20110302_213146.jpg

      22 page instruction booklet, all in Japanese.
      IMG_20110302_213828.jpg

      After an hour of work. (If you look in the center you can see the figure of the pilot, I would have painted the figure but I don't have the colors)
      IMG_20110302_223734.jpg

      And more to come...

      P.S.
      People complain way too much.

    • People Suck

      My family and I have had a wonderful weekend! smiley6.gif

      In case you didn't know that was sarcasm. My family was fortunate enough to be have been able to buy two house and an apartment building. My parents live in one of the houses then rent everything else. Unfortunately, currently the house that we rent is going for foreclosure which sucks in it of itself. But that's not the worse thing. We do have a dick of a lawyer attempting to prevent the bank from taking possession of the house. Then there's the kicker from this weekend. My mom got a call from the sheriff's department regarding the house. Apparently the people that were renting the house had converted the house into a marijuana grow farm. They've been only renting the house for four months and they demolished the inside of the house. There are five bedrooms redone into greenhouses, two bathrooms with the mirrors smashed and turned into storage for the chemical fertilizers, and then there are holes cut into all the walls connecting vents to all the rooms. These are also the worst kind of people because when my mom was showing them the house they had little kids with them to help sell that they were a "family" not to mention the house is on the same block as a elementary school.

      I seriously want to gut some people.

      EDIT: And now this secretary a few cubicles down lit a scented candle just after last week when she was told not to, just to cover the fact that she smoked up this morning. Now this hole area smells of strong Bath and Body.

    • FUCK YOU LA TIMES!!!

      If you follow comics, I'm sure you understand how much of a tremendous job writer Jonathan Hickman is doing on the Fantastic Four. So well in fact that he was about to kill off one of the members with much anticipation from everyone. It's been headlined for quite some time with Marvel teasing the new logo feature a 3 instead of the iconic 4. Sounds fun right?

      Well, your fun should be ruined if you happen to see the LA Times who have published who was killed A FULL DAY BEFORE THE ISSUE RELEASES IN THE UNITED STATES!

      This is the third time this has happened in recent memory where a major "news" paper and their websites have spoiled a storyline before anyone has a chance to even remotely come close to picking up the issue especially since I'm on the West coast.

      For christsake, last time it was Yahoo with the death of Captain America. If I didn't know the store owner personally, I wouldn't have grabbed an issue of a series I had been reading for years because of people swooping up the issue thinking it will be worth something.

      FUCK ALL YOU "NEWS" SITES THAT JUST WANT FUCKING CLICK THROUGHS AND FUCKING RUIN STORIES FOR US. smiley5.gif

    • My Grifball Hero and DCUO

      8 years ago

      draco24

      In case you haven't seen it yet, I've made a hero in DC Universe Online based on grifball. I've aptly named him Grifball Hero. While DCUO's customization isn't on par with some of the other superhero building MMOs out there, I was able to build a semblance of a grifball player. What more can you ask for an orange guy with a giant ass hammer. Spec-wise, I made him into a DPS instead of actually making him a tank. While it may have been fun saying he's a tank, I think I'll have more fun playing him as a DPS although he's going to probably be my back up hero. By the way, DCUO is a pretty fun game. It didn't feel like a straight MMO but more like a hack/slash RPG, because you have to constantly press buttons to attack instead of pressing attack then waiting for your mana to build to do your specials. And the best part about looting, I don't have to visit every dead body to go through it instead the bodies leave orbs that float to me with a press of a button. It was laggy though, but it was opening day with the game. I've always loved making heroes and villains in these games. I've already made 3 heroes and 1 villian with more coming on the way. Anyway, I'm on the PS3 Crisis server for the heroes and the Redemption server for the villains.

      Are you guys still doing the "Get to know _____ " team features on the Hub? I'm relatively interested in doing one if you are. Granted this +1 Zing squad is only on its' first season, but the original had a lot going on with H3P and before that. Plus we have a lot of individual history I think it could be cool to delve into.

      Just curious. smiley12.gif the Hub

      lol...I considered the same thing. It was pretty tempting but I guess I'll survive with just one smiley6.gif

    • i8yerpuppy

      10 years ago

      Agreed. Same price for me as well after shipping and tax. Now when it shows up I have to decide whether I want to leave it in the packaging or not ;P

    • i8yerpuppy

      Just ordered my grifball figure as well. Couldn't pass it up smiley0.gif

    • i8yerpuppy

      10 years ago

      lol...I know, I couldn't believe I only had two betrayals. Even though I was killing a lot, I was playing rather conservatively and not just zig zagging all over the place looking for more stuff to kill.

      I think the most amazing stat from last night was James only going -1 when he's way out in Vegas. That guy is good smiley6.gif

    • i8yerpuppy

      10 years ago

      I couldn't believe I had host. During the network test James was like "Puppy has host" and I was like "REAAALLLY!!?"

      I was actually pretty surprised it worked so well for me. I started pulling it over everyone this weekend during pick-up games and I was having a tough time with it. It's rough for me to adjust to playing on host when I play so much off host. Last night though I seemed to get it figured out.

      After nearly 15 months of playing I finally got host in a league game! Me! Finally smiley6.gif

      But I had my teddy bear before him. My teddy bear is named sniper and he doesn't like Kal.

      Sounds like he sucks out more often than a $2 whore.

    • goosechecka

      10 years ago

      You made the right choice though. If you raised hard and he stayed in, it's not likely he has a six or a pair of sixes. The pot odds were definitely in your favor, you just got unlucky.

    • goosechecka

      Ouch! Good call on his part though.

      I hope that you realized after I made this post that the poll topic wasn't one that was invaluable.

      Also the polls I posted got ~20 votes each. People are participating. Seems like the forum was the right place for it.

    • Leo

      10 years ago

      Also it's irrelevant to that thread because if you find it to be "spam" or "useless" you should report it to a moderator. In addition if something is bothering you usually the polite thing to do is confront the person that is causing you to be bothered.

      I'm sorry for misinterpreting your initial response.


      That's fine. For some reason I come off as arrogant to most people.

      But I don't know why this should be moved as it affects the grifball forum.

      If you don't like Zeg's plans. fine. but that thread was journal material.


      I disagree as I'm going to be providing information for everyone. Why do you classify it as journal material?

      And you wonder if it's you? Yes it is. I usually ignore people that spam or put up useless threads. But you put up both, and I had to say something. I've learned that you should put a lot of thought in making a new thread. I question if you do.


      I disagree that it's spam as it has a point, and I disagree on the point that it's useless. If that's the case the HLC thread is useless because all it is is Chatter, something that the Courtside BAR is for.

      New Threads have a Yellow Page icon next to them. My threads don't constantly knock things back pages because they don't get 1000 posts a day like the ones you participate in (HLC)

      Just because Zeg has a formula doesn't mean I want to use it. And does he rate players with that formula?

      And calling my stuff spam is incorrect. You're annoyed that Ive posted a handful of threads that have merit. Does it really matter who posts the thread? Would you rather I have someone else post them?

      In addition that wasn't a dick answer. Most people wouldn't think of doing that as a lot of users don't know that you can click view watchlist. Most people ignore the search forum feature all together.

      They rushed the movie too much, especially in the opening. They could have told the story then and it would have made more sense later on in the movie. Instead of waiting for the whole movie at the end to find out what was going on!!! I would have liked to see a better ending battle though. I mean he is the Lord of the Decepticons and even Megatron was there and you figured it would have been a tougher battle. smiley5.gif

    • seanzie253

      I was impressed how he had 2... all of sudden when last movie he only had one of each. Like when he dropped down to save sam in the building he had 2... and I was like when did he get 2.

      It's too damn expensive per movie. When HD was out it wasn't as expensive but every major company was switching to Blu-ray that's why it went away. Especially when Warner and Microsoft said they were no longer backing it. Now Blu-ray with how expensive it is, is slowly dying! Much to the like of everything that is Sony technology solely cause of how over priced they are selling their items. For example: The Playstation 3, LCD TV's etc. Sony has fallen sharply, and not just due to the stock market and consumer spending.

      I have noticed how much fun 1 vs 100 is. Especially with BK in the party lolololololol
