Geek Felt Plush Robots

Last week at the local comic con, I met local artist Beth Moak and saw her display of geeky felt plush robots. Truly awesome variety and well-made. She says it takes her about two hours of work for each one, unless her daughter is helping and then it takes two and a half. Her daughter agreed. 😉 The price I saw on most was $40. I got her card and web addresses so I can purchase once I decide.

If you communicate with her, she said to tell her the guy in the "It Ain't Easy Being Geeky" Kermit shirt sent 'ya. 😉 Also, if you visit her Facebook, tell her to get over her on G+. She had ZERO idea what G+ even was. I told her that there is a GREAT geek community here.

Also, don't Deadpool and Harley make a cute couple? She let me set that up at her display. 😀

Verizon and NFL, please [blank] off!

[Edit: Apparently I just needed to disable the NFL app. Still, why update with an opt-in on announcements. Also, why not just let me delete the app, especially if I can disable it?]

Apparently the NFL app on my phone updated and now I get useless (to me, as a non fan) update announcements. I went into the app and turned the setting off (I shouldn't have to opt out!) but it does not save the change; when I go back in and check, it's on again. And Verizon does not allow the NFL app to be uninstalled. I mean, I may stream NFL video and exceed my bandwidth so why miss out on that opportunity, right Verizon? Grr. Considering rooting just out of annoyance.?

Anyone else watch Penny Dreadful?

No? Then this post is REALLY odd.

I'm enjoying the progression of season two so far. I feel like there is more depth and a bit more focus.?

Brett Lipton as Keanu Reeves in 47 Ronin

+Steven Spence requested a mash-up of +Brett Lipton as Keanu Reeves. With the beard, I didn't want to go for the clean shaven Neo from The Matrix. Looking at movie posters, 47 Ronin seemed to fit the scruff. 😉

Head tilts and shading always give me trouble matching to the mash-up graphic, and this one was no different. I played with it until it looked okay, but had to put it to bed. All in all, I think it looks like Brett could hold his own in a sword fight. I'd watch that.

Zombie Wars: A New Epidemic

There is a whole series of zombie posters for all the Star Wars films but this one, by far, is my favorite. You can see more at Matt Busch's website.

Baby Fish!

+Maddie Cramer and I have about 20 baby guppies in a ten gallon nursery tank. We would have had more but the first batch of babies only gave us seven survivors by the time we got the new tank set up. Do we need a bazillion guppies? Nope. Not at all. If you live close, we'll have big guppies available soon enough. :-)

So… to date. 55 gallon community tank. 10 gallon nursery tank. 2.5 gallon beta tank. Stand and hood for a 75 gallon tank but no tank. Another 10 gallon tank but no gear. Definitely going to have more set up by end of year, finances willing.?

Explore the G+Verse!

Happy belated birthday to +matthew rappaport, one of the biggest G+ social media cheerleaders I know. From my first days on the plus, he has offered help and support and nothing but friendship and fun! It's been a pleasure these past years, Matt! One day, we'll make that HIRL happen. I would have finished this yesterday, but apparently someone laced my popcorn and cream soda dinner with sleeping tonic. 😉

Open Letter to Mom on Mother's Day

Mom,

I was going to have more words, but this weekend has been spent with your granddaughter staying up way too late watching too much television and eating not a balanced diet! I know you'd shake your head at me and laugh, telling me to do a little better with bed times and dinners; that we only get one go-round in this life. Then you'd smile and I know you would be proud of the relationship with daughter that I have built. You'd tell me not to worry about writing you while I'm with Maddie, that love is enough; so know this year I am writing while waiting on your granddaughter to get out of the shower before we go see more family. I am sitting in the house I never got a chance to show you or Dad but I know you'd love it, even with all my toys (we call them collectibles now) still sitting around like in my bedroom growing up – just not as messy (well, mostly). I wish I could share that little bro +Keith Cramer and I are still working together and not killing each other and our efforts have paid off in allowing us both to earn the houses and things that we have in our lives. Without you and Dad, we'd never have achieved any of it. I also wish you could see that +Rhonda Britton and I found each other again after so many years and meet the new family that has become a part of my life. Lastly, I wish you could meet the young woman your granddaughter +Maddie Cramer is growing into, sit again side by side with her like in this photo, and share more of your knowledge and love. 

Happy Mother's Day from all of us.

Love,
Scott
