*Bass X0 not available in Alaska or Hawaii.

@  Steevy Maximus : (13 June 2021 - 07:36 PM)

@  repowers : (13 June 2021 - 12:45 PM)

Mr. Speaker, we are for the Bass X0.

@  Nevermore : (13 June 2021 - 06:04 AM)

It's all about that Bass XD.

@  tigerhawk : (13 June 2021 - 02:16 AM)

Will altering the moons orbit in any way help.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (13 June 2021 - 01:51 AM)

Now that you have seen this Bass XO, you must send it to five other Bass XOs or BassXO will come to you in a week and then you too will be BassXO.

@  Telly : (13 June 2021 - 12:08 AM)

or feed him after midnight

@  wonko the sane? : (12 June 2021 - 09:00 PM)

Just don't drop him.

@  Kaon : (12 June 2021 - 08:03 PM)

man this chat is nothing but Bass X)

@  Nevermore : (12 June 2021 - 07:08 PM)

Carefull, he is a Bass Xo.

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 June 2021 - 05:53 PM)

Aw, it's not even a shiny.

@  Sabrblade : (12 June 2021 - 05:27 PM)

A wild Bass X0 has appeared!

@  Bass X0 : (12 June 2021 - 05:20 PM)

I didn't even try this time.

@  Nevermore : (12 June 2021 - 03:43 AM)

8ass XÖ has hijacked this conversation.

@  Bass X0 : (12 June 2021 - 03:37 AM)

Its Bass X0. I named myself after my three favourite Mega Man characters - Bass, X and Zero. I did consider going with Vile Bass X0, but that would have been going too far.

@  repowers : (11 June 2021 - 11:29 PM)

Bass XO has been trying to reach you about your car's extended warranty.

@  Echowarrior : (11 June 2021 - 09:25 PM)

Do not taunt Bass XO.

@  wonko the sane? : (11 June 2021 - 09:02 PM)

Please consult a technician before using Bass XO. Do not operate Bass XO while consuming alcohol.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 June 2021 - 04:48 PM)

Nine out of ten doctors recommend Bass XO. The last doctor is on my list.

@  Dekafox : (11 June 2021 - 01:51 PM)

Bass XO is available at these fine retailers.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (11 June 2021 - 02:01 AM)

Bass XO is not to be confused with Bay Sexo.

@  Fenix Twilight : (10 June 2021 - 08:38 PM)

It's good to be back, after that outage I think I'll try to post more.

@  Steevy Maximus : (10 June 2021 - 12:16 PM)

I think Hasbro Pulse is broken. Dang Star Wars nerds!

@  tigerhawk : (10 June 2021 - 04:46 AM)

When I googled 'space bridge' I was disappointed. Maybe in a hundred years.

@  ▲ndrusi : (09 June 2021 - 04:05 PM)

Bass XO is backward compatible with the Sega Master System.

@  Donocropolis : (09 June 2021 - 05:37 AM)

Bass XO has 9" long, dagger-like teeth and a 12,000 lb. bite force

@  repowers : (08 June 2021 - 07:26 PM)

Bass XO doesn't feel pain. He can't be reasoned with!

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 June 2021 - 02:57 PM)

Bass XO has no known weaknesses.

@  Nevermore : (08 June 2021 - 06:15 AM)

Base XO is definitely unstoppable.

@  Donocropolis : (07 June 2021 - 04:30 PM)

What about magnets? No one knows how they work or what they can do.

@  Bass X0 : (07 June 2021 - 02:22 PM)

Yes Cybershark, and now no force in the universe can stop us.

@  Cybersnark : (07 June 2021 - 10:03 AM)

Aaaan we're back!

@  Shockwave 75 : (06 June 2021 - 11:35 AM)

So glad the boards are back!

@  Echowarrior : (06 June 2021 - 07:45 AM)

@  wonko the sane? : (05 June 2021 - 08:32 PM)

Aw man, I missed this place...

@  Sabrblade : (05 June 2021 - 08:31 PM)

@  Kaon : (05 June 2021 - 06:42 PM)

test

@  tigerhawk : (24 May 2021 - 07:42 AM)

I'm making progress with tweezers. It's no great loss given Dai Atlas minor roles anyway, I really do prefer this mold for Titans Overlord and Sky Shadow,

@  unluckiness : (22 May 2021 - 09:57 PM)

Had that happen once. Drilled a 1 mmhole in the peg and superglued a rivet into it for something to pull on.

@  tigerhawk : (22 May 2021 - 09:44 PM)

pliers, superglue, heat, nothing has worked so far but I had to take yesterday off due to pfizer side effects.

@  unluckiness : (22 May 2021 - 07:04 AM)

is there enough plastic sticking out to yank it out with pliers?

@  tigerhawk : (21 May 2021 - 01:05 PM)

Oh great my Legends Dai Atlas fell and the gun snapped in two, the handle is stuck in the port on top of the vehicle mode.

I know of several of us here who've had a book published or a song released or something to that effect. Getting the word out and getting off the ground can be tough so I wanted to put together a list of everyone here and do a bit of a plug for everyone to help get the word out.

 

In order to do that I'll need to know who you are and where to buy your stuff so reply below.

 

 

Name you wish to be mention/promoted as: Ex, Allspark name, author name, real name, whatever -- it would probably be a good idea to mention both your username here and your real name/published name so people in the community will know who you are

 

Type of work: book, music, live performance/play, etc

 

Link to where people can purchase your work or tickets, etc:

 

If you have any images or text you'd like to accompany is (within space limitations) feel free to include those as well.

 

 

Ultimately, I just wanted  to use what meager influence I have with the Allspark as a social media platform to give you guys a signal boost and help promote you guys and your accomplishments.

I had a comic series published before but it's been discontinued, which sucks cuz I wasn't able to wrap up the mystery ghost story so I left the readers hanging. It was Free Spirits, a haunting with a Ladyhawke twist. The male ghost only appears when it's raining and the female ghost appears only when the lake waters are calm. I keep ending to have the story finished but need a manga artist. Also did Camp Big V, giant robot stuff. Also sucked that I couldn't keep writing it cuz I intended to homage each Beast Wars character as an evil giant robot.

This is very cool of you.

 

I, Dusty Stowe, have a rock and roll music band. We're called Retronym. I'm the co-lead singer/songwriter, guitar player, and producer/engineer. We released our debut album, Flores, last year. We're very proud of it. It can be streamed/bought here: https://retronymmusic.bandcamp.com/

 

You can also check us out on Facebook, if you like. https://www.facebook.com/retronymmusic

 

It's pay what you want, including zero dollars. We're just happy to have people hear it. Though if you want to give us money, we would love you forever.

 

We're located in Los Angeles. If there are any Allsparkers in the area, let me know and I'll see about getting discounted tickets to our next show.

(I've been in other bands, but I don't think I ever promoted them or anything around here.)

Yeah, I guess I should be clear about my intent here. If you've had stuff that has appeared in print or other mediums, it's not that it's not cool... but my main goal here is to showcase some stuff that constitute as a completed project that you're wanting to promote. 

 

For example, I've got 2 Allsparkers that, via facebook, were announcing and promoting their novels (or novelas) and I wanted to get the word out for them. 

 

I also know that people have posted about their projects here in the past and wanted to include everyone. So things like having a quote or portion of your writing appear in a published work or by having anonymous by lines or have posted in blogs/news publications/what have you.. that's really not the focus of this particular endeavor. 

 

Dusty's example is more what is in line with what I had in mind. 

 

Of course, feel free to talk about, discuss or indulge in whatever you want to promote.. it's just I don't want to imply that everyone mentioned in here will be showcased because it might not meet the above criteria.

    Well, I have a friend who is publishing a book series called Altered World (soon to be changed to Agent of Argyre). I've been helping with promoting his blog (http://jeremyvarner.com/blog/view/) which includes a number of additional resources for people including material related to his book's world, writing tips for beginners and people looking to self publish, and some social commentary related to his work. The first two books in the Agent series are Shards of Glass and A Patchwork Soul, with a third being published sometime in the next year. All of the books can be found on the book page of his blog site for now with links to various ebook store pages.
       
        Name: Jeremy Varner
        Link to Books: http://jeremyvarner.com/blog/work/
        Description: Ever feel a little… different? Maybe you are and don’t know it yet. You could be an Alter, a creature of legend lost in the gene-pool until recently.

I think it was actually something I heard about when Corvus had a forum on his site, like ten years ago. One of the users shared a five-song demo that was really good, and I played a track or two from it on my old radio show back then. Might've been someone else, though! It's an old, fuzzy memory.

Oh! That WAS probably me. I was in a band called Starfire that made an EP about a decade ago. Much younger Dusty thanks you for the radio airplay!

It was slightly bizarre. Apparently who ever does the dust jackets for Kadokawa uses Google a lot. I was mostly just chuffed it was pinched for use in about the only decent SEED production in over a decade.
