If this print was announced like all the other posters where the image came along at the same time as announcing there will be a print, then it would have been just fine.
Sigh.
Yeah?
I'll just never understand trying to tear something down for the fun of it. No one is immune to feeling bad about stuff. I am all for valid criticism, but doing it for sport is another story.

All good though, let's move on.

Oh, I knew what you meant. I just meant it's well past the 'trending towards' stage. He's been hardcore trolling for a bit now. I don't care so much for my own sake. I can suffer trolls all day and it doesn't ruffle my feathers too much. But I hate to see the affect it has on other people who could potentially add so much value to a place like this. Artists, and other people who don't want to deal with that bs. That part of it frustrates me. But anyway, that's all I'll comment about it.

This^^ Well said Mitch. And yes, let's. :pint:

Back to what was said on the show about VACVVM. I can't say enough how stoked I am to hear how active all 8 folks are working towards this big series of releases. Wonder who will be the first up. From what was teased in various posts, Mike seemed the furthest along. Though Holt's big wave and lighthouse tease was even earlier, so perhaps that's it.
So it goes...

I guess my problem is that in my mind it's valid criticism but when I type on this forum my bitterness comes out and I'm a total asshole and instead of trying to fix it I embrace it because I know people see me that way anyway.

I'm genuinley sorry about that. I'll drop it and back off. One bad product out of thousands of amazing stuff you do Mitch. Don't feel bad about it.

EB Particle and IRL Particle are two very different people. I think if we get him a sarcastic font we will all be fine.

I've said this a million times on this thread but our hive imaginations are way more satisfying than whatever could possibly be released by alot of these artists. Happened with Mondocon, Happened with Die Hard, happened with Alien. Will keep happening. I've tried to manage my expectations for all of it and just enjoy it when something I'm really into comes out, and waiting in endless lines with you sad bastereds :-)

PS. Excited to see the VACVVM colab thingy. But the question still remains, will it have Bruce Willis's likeness on it>!!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

I just think he spends way too much time on here. I know when I tend to get out of line, a little breather from EB here and there doesn't hurt to get me back on the straight and narrow.

He's making a point of staying around after he got the almighty drymount zinged out of him at work. People respond to him, it reinforces his behavior. Ignore him like you would a child throwing a tantrum.

Did you get one of the new hoodies? It looks like if you did, they'll probably come with it. :)
So it goes...
