You know that Patton Oswalt knew he'd made it as an entertainer when people stopped asking him whether he was Pat or Oswald and where was the other one.

@  Shrug : (21 October 2017 - 10:20 AM)

He does lots of voice work, but it was young Oswalt in my dream, so I guess it was the King of Queens edition.

@  Bass X0 : (21 October 2017 - 09:56 AM)

I only know about Patton Oswalt from Transformers.

@  Shrug : (21 October 2017 - 09:11 AM)

We won because Ellen kept going up the other teams and telling them to not worry about their hair looking silly in their helmets.

@  Shrug : (21 October 2017 - 09:10 AM)

I had a dream I was in a team kick scooter competition and the 3 people on my team were Ellen DeGeneres, Patton Oswalt, and my third grade bus driver.

@  WorkbenchManiac : (20 October 2017 - 07:26 PM)

If you are looking to recoup some of the costs, I mean

@  WorkbenchManiac : (20 October 2017 - 07:26 PM)

If it works, I might be willing to take it off your hands. I've been meaning to get one for customs and such.

@  Nevermore : (20 October 2017 - 12:34 PM)

If that thing works, I can use it for potential future cases like this as well.

@  Nevermore : (20 October 2017 - 12:33 PM)

Ordered a watchmaker pin remover from Amazon.

@  Nevermore : (20 October 2017 - 12:33 PM)

No, bought the set at a convention.

@  Robowang : (20 October 2017 - 08:14 AM)

That's never good. Buy it from a place that will replace it?

@  Nevermore : (20 October 2017 - 04:57 AM)

Gaaaah, Hasbro. My Transformers Tribute Optimus Prime (from the two-pack with Orion Pack) has a misassembled part that has another part connected to it via a metal pin...

@  Robowang : (19 October 2017 - 05:22 PM)

I just know they have the same ID number in the computer as deluxes, so the search feature on the website is useless.

@  Robowang : (19 October 2017 - 05:21 PM)

No idea on price.

@  Shrug : (19 October 2017 - 05:14 PM)

Oh thanks. I just assumed it was a special item. Does that mean it'll be the $18ish the normal Deluxes are or can Walgreens price them separately?

@  Robowang : (19 October 2017 - 05:11 PM)

Before you go hunting at Walgreens, know that the Clone two-pack number is identical to the regular deluxe number. An in-stock listing for the clones likely just means they have deluxes in stock.

@  Vexwing : (19 October 2017 - 04:49 PM)

I had met him at BotCon 2014, he was a vendor there. He was part of the group I hung out with at the day at Universal. Really fun guy, it's sad he's gone.

BERNIEEEEEEEE...

@  Shrug : (18 October 2017 - 10:47 AM)

I'm not saying they're the same. They're clearly not. But members of both parties do receive large sums of money from telecom companies. When it comes to net neutrality, the issue isn't solely bipartisan so much as it's Old Politicians that don't understand technology.  Republicans do seem intent on making it worse intentionally though.

@  Paladin : (18 October 2017 - 10:40 AM)

anyone who still says "they're both the same!" after the past 10 months is WILLFULLY ignorant.

@  unluckiness : (18 October 2017 - 10:22 AM)

I'm not American. Should I do something about it or just ignore it.

@  Shrug : (18 October 2017 - 08:48 AM)

I doubt we'd have a chance with Hillary either. Didn't she get like 100k from Comcast? Both parties are pretty dang corrupt. If only Bernie...

@  2017 : (17 October 2017 - 05:56 PM)

@  wonko the sane? : (17 October 2017 - 04:35 PM)

Okay, so it is the allspark doing it, and not some piece of malware I need to run a system scan over, that's basically all I wanted to know.

@  Evac : (17 October 2017 - 04:34 PM)

If, say, Hillary or Bernie was president, we'd have a chance, but with the current administration... We're pretty much hugged.

Well, another month has come and gone. I wish I could say I got a lot done, but sadly, real life had a tendency to intervene. Still, enough was done, and I'm pleased to say that new stuff is either coming within the immediate future or very soon. Major details here.

Here's hoping that July will see a lot done! Meanwhile, stay tuned - new stuff is coming very soon!

As promised, a new thing, just in time for the (original) release date for the new film.

-

This is the story of an idealistic young Cybertronian, who fought on the streets to survive and saw friends pointlessly killed. This is the story of a vengeful Decepticon, whose hatred was quelled by wisdom and finally saw the darkness that he'd been blind to for far too long. This is the story of the angry young mech who grew into a calm and tranquil warrior, and found where he belonged. This is the story of how Deadlock died, and how Drift was reborn. All he needed was to be set Adrift.

And we're back to re-edits. With luck, the next few parts will follow very shortly.

Reinforcements arrive for the Decepticons, simultaneously upping the ante in the war and forcing Hot Shot to confront a demon from his past. Confrontations have begun.

Well, last month had some productivity to it. That's a plus, yes?

Anyway, as announced on my DA page, I'll be taking a break from T:A-R during September (and maybe October) to focus my attention upon other projects, including editing that novel I have planned. So consider it very unlikely that I'll be posting anything of that nature for the next couple months, save maybe a re-edit. In any case, the details for what I've gotten done are here.

Well, here we are again. I wish I could say that the first month of my two-month break from my Transformers series has been as productive as I'd like, but unfortunately, it hasn't. Stuff's gotten done, but not nearly as much stuff as I'd hoped, and I doubt next month will be much different.

Anyway, details on DA as always.

Not sure if anyone here is particularly interested, but as a small gift for everyone who's been following my work, I decided to post a small preview of some of the future installments on my DA page.

Echowarrior's DA: Arc Four Preview

Each section comes from the four installments for the fourth and final arc for my Armada series that I've either finished the rough drafts for (sections 1, 2 and 4 from "Phoenix Rising", "Underfoot", and "Yesteryear") or I'm simply starting on (section 3, with the tentative title of "X File"). Any comments and thoughts on these are welcome.

Anyway, here's the status for this month. Here's hoping work gets done.

Well, last month wasn't as productive as I'd hoped, but I did manage to get quite a bit of stuff done. This month, however, I'm focusing on one single project, so with luck, it'll either get finished, or I'll get really far along on it. Hoping for the former.

Oh, and do forgive the two links for this one; the old format was getting a little frustrating, so I split it into two journals. The first one has the account for my major writing projects, the second for my toy photos.

So yay, stuff's getting done! And with any luck, before the end of August, I'll not only have a lot done, but I'll have some extra cash and get a few bits and pieces done otherwise!

Well, last month was amazingly productive; I was able to work on every project I've got going on right now, and I actually got a couple of them done! Here's hoping this month goes at least partially as well. I don't plan on working on my Transformers stuff, but I've got a few other irons in the fire and I plan on getting as much done with them before the end of the month as I can.
