I was planning on writing a serious, proper introduction to the site, a mission statement if you will, channeling the spirit of all the bloggers who try to legitimize their hobbies by attributing them with deeper meaning and pretentiously throwing around the word 'art' way too much. But then I thought it would be best not to blow this thing out of proportion and just show it for what it really is.
A blog with various stuff, eliciting responses ranging from "neat" to "huh".
Stuff mostly of a modeling nature. No, not the cool, sexy, socialy hip modelling. The other kind. The one that deals with plastic, resin and paints. We don't have as many attractive people here, but we do have miniatures of laser guns and swords in space.
Stuff combining my love of assembling and painting small stuff to look like other, bigger stuff, with my love of imaginary worlds and the creative side of popculture.
So stuff not limited to any specifc type of modeling, meaning you're as likely to stumble upon posts with armies of tabletop miniatures, as you are of finding pictures of movie sculptures or scale models of military aircraft.
The kind of stuff that might trigger the same part of your brain that lights up and wakes up your inner kid everytime you see an awesome LEGO set, despite the fact that you're an engaged adult who pays taxes and has a mortgage.
Stuff that hopefully becomes a useful routine for my procrastinating, ADHD riddled brain to focus on.
That, plus the occasional post about random bullshit mixed with some popcultural ramblings and my oh so very important thoughts on why "superhero movie X" sucks/rocks.
That's it I guess. I haven't abused the word "art" and yet still managed to end up with an introduction that tries a bit too hard and is somewhat pretentious in it's own way becouse of it.
Anyway. Hope you're here to stay,
Purveyor of Stuff.
PS. As I am not a native english speaker, you can probably expect to see some record-scratching grammatical errors in this place, with some regularity. However, being a Poland-born, half-Vietnamese guy (go figure), who learned english mostly from religiously consuming 80's flicks on VHS during his formative years, and later translating Games Workshop armybooks in his teens, I would kindly ask you to be considerate with any prospective grammar natzi-ing done in relation to the shit posted here. In this regard, graciously be more of a grammatical Stauffenberg, and less of a Himmler.
