Lovely, just lovely. *grumbles* Seems that all of the suddenly nobody actually knows when the Windstone paint your own gryphons are going up. It could be today, at any time. It could be tomorrow, at any time, it could even be later.

And I MUST have one, (at least one!) and they will sell out within a matter of an hour or two, guaranteed, therefore I am pinned to the computer until the auction goes up! Argh. And I was going to go out and run errands today and everything. Bah.

Why should I care?

I'm being told that I need to care that the Davinci Code movie is being banned in some places.

So tell me, why should I? Why should I care that a generic action puzzle move, that's based on a book that is literally almost indistinguishable in plot from any other book by the same author, is banned? (Seriously. You think there are surprising plot twists in this book? Not if you've read anything else by Dan Brown, there aren't.) Oh sure, banning in general gets my goat. It's small minded and stupid and ignorant and annoying, but why should I get more worked up over Dan Brown's "masterpiece" than over the banning of anything else?

I'm tired of hearing about it. It's a not-particularly-accurate, not-particularly-brilliant work of fiction that provided me with a few hour's of entertainment one day. Woo. How ground-breaking.

I roll my eyes at them, thus. *rolls eyes massively*

I don't care. I'm not going to care. For all I know, banning the thing could be a publicity stunt by Mr. Brown. The "controversy" over this thing has certainly made him nice and rich. And no matter how often you tell me that this movie is "encouraging people to question religion" I'm still going to roll my eyes at you. If you need an action movie to tell you to question religion, you've got bigger problems than having said action flick banned in your home country.

More bad mini photography.

That is to say,bad photography of minis. The minis are, of course, awesome.

Today, we have Tulloch, paladin of Heironeous! (That would be JJ's DnD character.)

I'm so itching to get my hands on a decent camera so I can show you what these guys actually look like. But ah well.

Tully will shortly be joined by Facebiter, his noble steed. (That's why he's so bow-legged, he's riding a horse.) And you can't see it (woe!) but I actually got eyes on him. Like, not blobs of color filling the entire eye socket, but little, nice, round blue eyes. No pupil or highlight though, that would be a bit much to ask of me. Though someday, if I get a loupe, and a smaller brush, maybe...

Whee!

Also, if anybody from Freespace hasn't dropped by to read the preview, would you please? And if anybody from Freespace HAS, feedback please? *looks at you with big, sad, anime kitty eyes.* Pretty please?
