I think the dried chickpeas I have are cursed or something.
Every time I cook and eat them intestinal hell ensues.
I feel bad about wasting them if I throw them out. :/ Maybe I’m just not cooking them long enough? I dunno. >:

Unlikely simultaneous historical events
A poster on Reddit asks: What are two events that took place in the same time in history but don’t seem like they would have?
Spain was still a fascist dictatorship when Microsoft was founded.
There were no classes in calculus in Harvard’s curriculum for the first few years because calculus hadn’t been discovered yet.
Two empires [Roman & Ottoman] spanned the entire gap from Jesus to Babe Ruth.
When the pyramids were being built, there were still woolly mammoths.
The last use of the guillotine was in France the same year Star Wars came out.
Oxford University was over 300 years old when the Aztec Empire was founded.
I know it’s less of a shock if you read His Last Bow, but it does blow my mind a bit that there’s an entire collection of ACD Holmes stories that were written and published after World War I.

WONDERCON! FREELANCING! GOGO DANCING!
Well kiddlywinks, Katrina did not get the London job. >:
But with this loss, means that I am still on slate to appear with WARHEAD at WonderCon, BIGWOW and APE. So that’s good!
In other news, I have an account on guru.com, and I am going to start applying for jobs tomorrow. Wheee!
I’m nervous about having enough business to freelance full-time so I am going to become a gogo dancer. 8D Or something. On the side. Yes.
I also have to sort out super fun tax things, yay!
Okay I am going to shower and go the fuck to bed.
I'm sorry in advance if someone already asked this and I missed it, but a while back you mentioned something about a limited run of Commander figurines at TCAF, and I was wondering who you were going through to have them made? If someone else is doing them, that is. I've been wanting to have some small figurines made for my next con, and I've thought about casting them myself, but seeing as I've never done resin casts before, I think I might want to leave it to someone else.
Ah, I was actually planning to cast them myself, my friend biliouskaiju has a whole machine shop that her dad’s assembled through a lifetime of working for toy companies and that sort of thing. Uhm… I know missmonstermel has had one of her dolls cast by an external company, you might want to ask her? I don’t know if that company only deals with ball jointed doll casts, though, I know there are a handful of companies that focus on that. Another option could be 3D printing? There are companies that will provide you with scans of physical sculptures so you can take them to 3D printers. The book Pop Sculpture also has a section on DiY at-home casting, if that helps!
I’ve thought about 3D printing for this since it is something relatively small and a single colour. I’d be less intimidated by doing my own resin casting if the sculptures themselves were less intricate. Due to my lack of experience I’m not sure if I can get away with a two piece mold, or if I’m going to have to sort something else out.
Thank you so much for the reference! I’ll definitely look into the book, especially for figuring out the ins and outs of whether my sculptures are doable.
