Alternate Title- It’s a Strange World or: How I Learned to Stop Griping and Love the Treadmill
Hey everyone, this is something really different from the usual today. I’ve thought about writing something like this for a little while but I’ve always put it off. Mainly because I didn’t want to come off as some kind of expert who knows what the hell they’re doing (I don’t, really), like I’m proselytizing (I’m not), or that I’m bragging (again, not). I just wanted to write the kind of advice that I myself could’ve used when I started this whole thing: something from a normal person who’s just trying to get in better shape and is honest about the process. So bear with me as I try to muddle through.
Hey everyone! I know I said I'd be back with a review for Godzilla, and I will get that out. However, work has been quite busy this week and then we got the news dropped on us that our con, for which we've been working our butts off (as you've seen) to get ready for, has been 'postponed until 2019' with no other information other than that. So, needless to say we've all been in a bit of a funk of disappointment since. I haven't even watched all the SDCC trailers and news yet. So, instead we're going to have a look at some fun things.

Welcome to Part 3! There’s lots to go over this time so let’s get right to it! As usual, this will be a pretty image-heavy post. We’ll start with updates on the last post and then get into some new stuff!
However you celebrate, I hope you all have a wonderful Easter! Enjoy some funnies and have an awesome day!
What you see here is the place where virtually the entire Marvel Universe sprang forth from the brush and mind of Jack "King" Kirby:
I love this photo, and I want to tell you why.

Hey everyone, I wanted to talk to you today about something a bit more serious. In terms of mainstream acceptance and sheer scale of dissemination through popular culture, it has never been a better time to carry the title of ‘nerd’ or ‘geek’. If you look at the films with the highest grossing openings, not only are the top three spots held by geek culture movies (Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Jurassic World, and The Avengers) but in fact the top thirteen places are held by films within the genre, only interrupted by Furious 7. You can walk into any Target, Spencer’s even Wal-Mart and easily find a plethora of clothing, accessories, and collectibles to proudly proclaim your love of all things geeky. Conventions are huge and plentiful, with cons like E3, the New York Toy Fair, and San Diego Comic Con becoming entities unto themselves as places of premiere news, trailers, and announcements to both geek and mainstream media. We made it guys, widespread acceptance!
In the process of cleaning up some hard drive space, I came across some body outlines I drew back in 2006. I cleaned them up a bit and provide them here for downloading and printing. These are not part of HeroMachine 3, they're just for folks who want to hand-draw (or use the computer with something like Paint if you want) outfits but need a body to hang them on.
These are all transparent PNGs so if you do want to use them in a painting application, they're easy to isolate from the background.
