Police: Vandal spray paints ‘F--- Elon’ on 34 Tesla Cybertrucks in Fort Lauderdale
  • So someone was "storing" 34 $80,000 cars in an unattended lot in the middle of a bad neighborhood? Sounds like "someone" wanted something to happen to get some insurance money on those unsellable abominations lol

  • Ironically if they did hire a white man to play The Little Mermaid, the hard right nutjobs would be screaming that it was part of a "woke trans agenda" to normalize crossdressing and eliminate the traditional American male from society lol

  • Interestingly this statement is only presented completely without context. What role where they talking about? I'm sure Steven Miller wouldn't be satisfied until white men in blackface are playing every role in whatever it is they're talking about lol

  • The Arby's Triple Cheese Melt. I think they stopped making it by the late 90s. Every once in a while it would show up again randomly and go away again a few weeks later but I don't think I've seen one since like 2005

  • Woman busted giving Botox injections in Florida mall’s parking lot for $150 to $350, cops say
  • The person who reported the case to police was under the impression that Gutierrez-Farfan was a licensed provider.

    Right, because licensed medical providers so often practice healthcare out of an old drink cooler in the parking lot at the mall lol

    WIP Wednesday! What are you working on this week?
  • Omg I just now realized there was a pun in there lol 🐉🤣

  • WIP Wednesday! What are you working on this week?
  • I didn't mind too much since there were a few very minor other mistakes in that section that it gave me a chance to fix too... I had decided it wasn't worth fixing those until I realized that the one row I was off by was going to make everything below the dragons ear look crooked lol

    A blessing in disguise I guess 😅

  • WIP Wednesday! What are you working on this week?

    I had to frog almost all the progress I made last week and redo it after realizing I'd somehow stitched everything in the new section one row too low... Thankfully I got caught back up and made a little more progress though so I hope this panel will be done by Friday!

    How would you complete this part of the pattern?

    There aren't really any other instructions included on the PDF. I think it's supposed to be a half stitch of one color and then a half stitch of the other maybe?

    Magic House book nook completed! (closeups in post)

    This one went pretty fast! These book nook models really kind of fall in between model making and something like a 3d puzzle, so I ended up finishing it after just a few days, but it was still really fun! There are 4 different LED lights I had to rig up here and they all connect to a touch sensor on the base so you don't have to take it off the shelf to turn it on and off.

    It was fun to build but I think I'll go back to building the more traditional models after this

    Kerry King "From Hell I Rise" an honest review

    I've been a Slayer fan for nearly 30 years now, and as a guitar player Kerry King has been one of my heroes since I was a teenager, so I went into this with high hopes.

    I'm sure you've all heard some reviews already calling the whole project "Slayer Lite" and I can't completely disagree with that, but I really feel it's not entirely fair, and I will clarify that as I go through the good, the bad, and the "meh" of this album.

    Let's get the bad out of the way first. This is mostly just a Slayer album. As much as I love Slayer I was really hoping for something more from this solo outing. The part that really kind of irritates me the most is that it's not even a cohesive Slayer album. Some tracks sound like modern Slayer, some like 90s Slayer when they flirted with nu metal, and my favorites sounded like classic 80s thrash era.

    What we've ended up with sounds more like a collection of Slayer B-sides and unreleased tracks that goes on a little longer than it probably should. While they are all definitely good songs, there's really not much here I haven't heard before. The guitars sound like Slayer, the drums sound like Slayer, the bass sounds like Slayer, even the singer sounds like Tom Araya with a sore throat.

    Wow, I really used the word "Slayer" a lot there...

    That's really it for anything negative I can say about it, so let's move on to the positive!

    There are a number of tracks on here where you can actually hear Kerry King very tentatively trying to step out of his comfort zone a little, and that kept me engaged enough to listen to the whole thing. Mostly these were little things that I think would have been vetoed on a regular Slayer release. There are some neoclassical riffs, a couple of tracks lean a little more punk which I really liked, I think I even heard a little blues lick here and there!

    I wouldn't call any track on here bad! I enjoyed all of them individually even if they don't necessarily add up to something that sounds like an "album" as a whole! If you were really wanting more Slayer after the last album you won't be disappointed!

    My final conclusion is that this is an album written by a man who has played the same type of music with the same band for 40+ years, and is not yet really sure how to branch out on his own. If he makes another one, and I hope he does, I'd like to hear him go completely off the deep end and play something totally unexpected that he always wanted to do but couldn't because it didn't sound "Slayer" enough.

    My final grade is 3 inverted crucifixes out of 5

    Progress so far on Kiki's Magic Emporium by Rolife

    This one is quite a bit more difficult than the last one, but SO much fun! I will have to do a lot of cleanup on some of these before I assemble the full finished model, but it's going great so far!

    I added the little skull beads myself, they don't come in the kit 💀
