Cancel the Apocalypse

This started as an art blog. Still is when I can be arsed to post art of any sort. Posts are most frequently related to: Sci-fi and fantasy across all media from video games and films to tv shows foreign and domestic, my overwhelming leftist radical rage, and generalized snarky observation. I regularly get into discussions with my mutual-follow buddies and sometimes mumble about writing/the writing process.

Had a big 4000 points per team (2000 per player) friendly game today. Ended up winning 8 victory points to 4, and 8f the game had continued our team was on track to table the other guys entirely. 

Mvp was definitely the Knight Titan, which they all but ignored for three rounds. Accordingly, it ran roughshod over their entire left flank.

My stormraven got shot down by interceptor shots so my chapter master and hammernators didn’t accomplish much. But all that fire on the stormraven *wasn’t* on the Knight or the tacticals or anything else. 

My buddy’s grey knights did a good job of advancing under fire on the right flank and I hald center so we won two objectives to one.

Magical Paths Begging To Be Walked

Roads and paths pervade our literature, poetry, artwork, linguistic expressions and music. Even photographers can’t keep their eyes (and lenses) off of a beautiful road or path, which is why we collected this list of 28 amazing photos of paths.

Paths like these have a powerful grip on the human imagination – they can bring adventure, promise and change or solitude, peace and calm. There’s nothing like a walk down a beautiful path to clear your head – or to fill it with ideas!

I’ll leave you with an excellent quote from J. R. R. Tolkien’s works while you enjoy these images; “It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no knowing where you might be swept off to.

  1. Autumn In The White Carpathians
  2. Rhododendron Laden Path, Mount Rogers, Virginia, USA
  3. Spring In Hallerbos Forest, Belgium
  4. Autumn Path In Kyoto, Japan 
  5. Autumn Path
  6. Bamboo Path In Kyoto, Japan
  7. Hitachi Seaside Park Path In Japan
  8. Dark Hedges In Ireland
  9. Winter Forest Path, Czech Republic
  10. Path Under Blooming Trees In Spring

There’s this family on some reincarnation show or another that my mom is watching, and they have the most horrible accent I’ve ever heard.

Evidently they’re from South Carolina? All I know os their voices are like fingernails on a blackboard. It is literally physically painful to listen to them.

It’s not just the accent, either. They sound congested and omit words I’d consider critical to clear communication.

I don’t want to be a judgemental asshole but holy hell they’re giving me a headache.


Tried to get up at eleven, ended up going back to sleep until one, then sat around trying to wake up for another two hours. Maybe I should caffeine it up.


Ok I ate a thing and took my “don’t be sad; be asleep” pill so gnight

But are you paying attention to what’s going on??? My heart is so heavy….. so heavy…
An attorney for the family of John Crawford III, the man fatally shot by police in an Ohio Walmart store, says surveillance video contradicts the police department’s version of events. Officers say Crawford refused to drop the pellet gun he was holding, but the video allegedly shows them gunning him down “on sight.”
Crawford, 22, was shopping at the Beavercreek, Ohio store on Aug. 5 whenpolice responded to another customer’s report that Crawford was carrying an AR-15 rifle. He was actually holding a pellet air rifle he had just picked up from a shelf in the store’s toy department.
Attorney Michael Wright says he viewed surveillance video that shows Crawford was facing away from the cops and talking to his girlfriend on the phone when police spotted him, and didn’t have the toy gun raised. Hetold WDTN Crawford probably didn’t see or hear the officers before he was shot.
"John was doing nothing wrong in Walmart, nothing more, nothing less than shopping,"Wright said, according to Reuters.

Painted up Ezekiel of the Dark Angels as an Obsidian Paladins Librarian because why not. Pretty happy with the contrast between the gold armor and the crimson robes, as well as the force sword.
