Okay here is my project... for the last month or so I've been teaching myself how to do AE aircraft art, and after about ten attempts and a lot of sweat and tears I've completed my first aircraft.

Now it's not that good and not up to Dixie's standard, but it's a start. So here we are; Its a LB-30 from the 98th Bombing Group, which actually served in Europe I think. Also one of my new years resolutions is to talk with Dixie for half and hour, and get all the proper technics and tips from him.

You know, mate, for a guy who has foresworn parenthood as often as you have, I almost get the idea that you're protesting too much. If you're not going to have kids that's fine-but telling us all the things that are standing in the way of you having kids in detail? Face it, vato, you're doomed-you'll be a dad before you know it. Mark my words.

Very impressive, Des. Nice work.

Of course, it would look much better with some 20mm shell holes, greasy flames and smoke sprouting from the wings. But that's just me.

I havent foresworn it, I'm terrified of it. There is a very definite distinction between the two.

You're right. So, do you prefer 'papa', 'daddy' or some Russian derivation for your young 'un?

It's good mate, easily as good as my first attempts. The biggest improvement you can make will be reducing the jagged edges.

What did you use to make it? I use paint.NET, it's got a lot of nice features and is free. The most important thing you can do is learn how to use layers. With those you can do all sorts of nifty stuff. I can sort out a helpful guide if you want, I'm not saying it's the best way to do things but it's my way.

And welcome back Kristian!


BTW, what games / simulations / strategies you play at the moment?

Also was there any luck with job hunting in the meanwhile (we all kept our collective fingers crossed)?


I'm playing a bit of Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer with a couple of close friends, some XCOM, a bit of my AE AI game and some Plague Inc and Spelltower on my iPhone. Not so much energy for gaming at the moment.

As for jobs, I'm currently in a short-term contract office job at a debt collection company.

We had about +5 degrees Centigrade today with blue skies and sun (about "RealFeel" +15 when directly on sun)...

But snow is coming in 2 days... we expect at least 30+ cm of snow...

Dad got his Sport Cert today and took me up for a ride. Put dog nose marks on the passenger window but hey! Woof! I got tired of hanging out on the ground with a bunch of Navy Ensigns; they were cool and gave me lots of treats, but I wanted to be with Dad and I might have been a bit pissy, as it were.

You can’t believe how cool it was. There I was, sitting in the right seat, and Dad was talking to me the whole time. Ok, on my back, legs up, looking for some love, I’m an airborne dog.

Eat it - of course!

We cleaned it and froze it for two nice family meals (one time fried squid and one time filled squid - those two are quite common and loved way of preparing squids here)...

Yes, I have a private licence, but on sunny weekends, I look up and see, and hear, some gnarly air maneuvers. So I go to P'cola and ask, and they are local clubs flying out of a local NOLF. So I go there and ask the question and find they are x-planes or sport planes. I get a ride, and find out all I know about flying is doo doo. So take a sport cert from the Navy guys.

Must admit I conjured with Lt Cmdr Ian Kibler, and you all would believe how many Ensigns and JGs signed up to help me out. God love you, Elf. So now I'm flying out of NOLFs and learning how. There are 2 seater sport planes, but there's only room for the pilot and a nice dog.

What do you do with so much squid?


Why, you smear it all over your body, of course. Or use it to wash the dog. What do you think you'd do with 6 pounds of squid, vato loco?

On the way home today, I witnessed a beautiful woman in the car next to me at a stop light...

...picking her nose and eating her boogers while talking on her cell phone.

I didn't have my phone with me, but if I did, there would be another new video posted on YouTube tonight.
