O.K., Charles Schultz never said that- or then again, maybe he did but he was never quoted as saying it- authentically anyway. But a great friend of mine often used that quote, when speaking about art, attributing it to Charles Schultz which has never failed to crack me up. Fun stuff.
Creating fake quotes, or using quotes inappropriately is a lot of fun. Back in the early neolithic when my group of friends used to have parties all the time, I used to sneak quotes in on the party fliers, one of my favorite being "Sleek, sexy entertainment!" - Newsweek, David Ansen. Again: fun stuff.
What am I yammering on about?
The voting for the 'Dynamic Duo' painting contest on The Warhammer Forum ended, and my Halfling & Ogre didn't win. I did get a very respectable second place however, so "I'll get you Red Baron!" might be appropriate. But what actually stirred the memory of this misquote was a clever fellow on the forum took the winning picture, of two Imperial Guardsmen, and made a speaking & thought bubble for them, so people could have fun and a bit of competition to put words in their mouth. Yet again: Fun Stuff.
Go here to see What were they thinking?
If you feel like putting words in their mouth, you can download the blank picture below, use a program to type in words and post it up the forum!

So go on, have some fun with it :)
In other news, just been several days of long work hours.
The Genestealer Cult army is finished, other than the flyer bases and gloss on optics.
So hopefully will have some of that to show soon.
I skipped out on last Friday's game night to put more work in, and haven't had any time for any of my painting projects, but maybe I'll be able to squeeze a bit in in the near future.
And today, three spam comments got through the spam filter. Only 2 have ever made it through before, but today 3 slipped through? Not sure how or why. I don't want to switch to captcha, because I hate it. I hate filling them out to leave a comment, so don't want to do it to anyone else. I may make it so people can't post anonymously, as I've only seen 1 real, non-spam anon comment. If you do leave comments using the anonymous, not 'signed in' format, and maybe you create a name when you do, let me know, since I don't want to make it impossible for people to leave a comment, and never know it because they can't leave a comment to let me know they can't leave a comment. But if no one uses the anon comment function, that might be a solution if spam keeps seeping through. Because I don't want spammers to succeed. If canceling anonymous comments would leave people without a way to comment who do, then I'd go with moderation: since I work from home, I can check it fairly often to click 'approve', but I won't use captcha.
So if turning off anonymous comments is an issue, let me know.
