@praguepainter the other amusing thing here is one of my early gigs here was designing logos for labor union locals – usually for patches. – 01:31 AM GMT

@praguepainter so I used to have to crank out four or five of these on spec a day. got fast. really, really fast. – 01:33 AM GMT
After a slow start, I got in a solid six hours of plant-related maintenance and destruction activity, with my customary light electrical. – 01:36 AM GMT
@arthurwyatt you know, we don’t have dinner plans – 01:53 AM GMT
@BitterOldPunk unknown, but it is his shtick. where the unknown bit is important. – 02:04 AM GMT
OMG so sore! Cain’t rise fum mah chair with the fluidity of youth! – 02:27 AM GMT
@mcgee_gorgo nope, me too. also I like and fear the idea of KFC ortolan – 02:28 AM GMT
@manwhoyells yr scaring me – 05:12 AM GMT
@mcgee_gorgo oh hellz no. orchestral brass heavy minor key scores, no pop elements what-so-ever. maybe only organ music, noir was silent 1st – 05:15 AM GMT
“@BoringPostcards: Can I just say … “It’s A Shame About Ray” is the best pop song ever? Shut up. No, It is.” cc @johnpstrohm @Evan_Dando – 05:21 AM GMT
@mcgee_gorgo hm, well there’s an argument for contextual soundtracks. “Before Dark” first to do so successfully I recall, circa 1989 – 05:24 AM GMT
@mcgee_gorgo but even then they used The Cramps as Montana (?) roadhouse music circa 1989 which is clearly not in-world accurate – 05:25 AM GMT
RT: @slowdumbshow: @mwhybark this is timely. I’ve been listening to Lemonheads’ “Fan Club” release lately because it’s just stupidly happy and awesome. – 05:26 AM GMT
oops I mean fwd @johnpstrohm @Evan_Dando (prior RT) but uhhhh there’s no actual fwd huh – 05:27 AM GMT
@mcgee_gorgo exactly! that’s why no pop elements is a better choice, mostly. Like, legit pre-electric blues would be fine. Blind Blake. – 05:29 AM GMT
@mcgee_gorgo but ZZ Top or the Rev or Dexter Romweber? nope, only some specific places at some specific times. – 05:30 AM GMT
@mcgee_gorgo OTOH *some* specific electric blues might work. More or less any Howlin’ Wolf/Hubert Sumlin sides, for example. – 05:35 AM GMT
@mcgee_gorgo @arthurwyatt in PDX – 06:45 AM GMT
.@mubay oh, and on reflection, it seems possible the maneuver and damage system is licensed from Ace of Aces. – 07:14 AM GMT
@arthurwyatt there’s a wooden (no longer) tallship up on the coast near um Port Angeles iirc that is all overgrown and still recognizable – 12:50 PM GMT
@arthurwyatt i’ve casually looked for it in gmaps but never have, um surfaced it. – 12:52 PM GMT
@arthurwyatt this is different from the one I was thinking of but still neat: virtualglobetrotting.com/map/wooden-shi… – 01:19 PM GMT
@zipties I have several editions. These are oldest, (c) sez 1980, all copy is typewritten. Great game. Llew? who dat? pic.twitter.com/fYUFSdXJCp – 07:02 PM GMT
@zipties The other unnamed game I was referring to is the new Sid Maier iOS game, Ace Patrol. If you like one, you might like the other. – 07:04 PM GMT
@noahi neat! – 07:05 PM GMT
