great range

The news in brief
  • New stuff from previous Mister Ghost parcels will start filtering into the store in the next few days
  • To celebrate, a sale is slated to start April 1 and will last about a week
  • Test shirts are in production and so far everything looks great.
    • Sizes will range from XS to 2XL
    • 2-3 brands of shirt to choose from so you can say “I like this brand best for fit”
    • Probably May-ish for the first batch of shirts. More designs filtering into the store forever.
    • Mermaid shirts
    • Dryad shirts
    • Villain shirts
    • Haunted diner shirts
    • Etc.
  • Mugs are also in production.
    • We can produce 11oz or 15 oz mugs
    • So obviously we’re doing 15oz
    • The first mug designs will be for “Creepy Crepes” and “Donut Be Afraid”
    • Because oh my ghost I want to DRINK COFFEE FROM THESE BADLY.
    • Similar timelines to above, May-ish
  • The blog is coming along nicely. It’ll launch late summer or early autumn.
    • “Why is it taking so long?” I wondered to myself, then counted the stories and articles from the past 4.5 years of Tumblr
    • Whew there are a lot. A few hundred.
    • And while they are mostly very short, some need updating, they all need data entry.
    • “I’ll do art for these!” (counts the number) “I’ll do art for new ones and use old ones as warmup and backfill art!”
    • Profiles for each location and business and character are being written as well. So if you’re thinking to yourself “Wait, who is married to who now?” it will be easy to review.
  • Test enamel pins are glorious and will be filtering into the store late summer/early autumn
  • Posting of stories has tapered off slightly in March because I’ve been focusing on the above. By mid-April we’ll be back on track if not earlier. Everything is going great, but by saying “okay ease up on the stories for a few weeks” I’ve been able to address much-needed issues that will help the long term.

It is time to drink coffee and dance badly. Update complete.

For some convoluted reason, everyone suddenly starts involuntarily bursting into song “Buffy: Once More with Feeling"-style.

Everyone in the crew has their own musical number revolving around their current thoughts and issues. Donut takes care of belting out the opening number, since he has such great range. Sarge sings about building robots with Lopez. Simmons sings about his dreams and ambitions.

Grif can feel it coming but has no power to stop it and starts singing a soulful love ballad to Simmons.

Simmons malfunctions.

Sudell’s Frog (Neobatrachus sudelli)

Also sometimes known as the “Painted Burrowing Frog”, a name also given to another member the genus Neobatrachus as well. Sudell’s frog is a species of Australian ground frog (Myobatrachidae) which is found on and west of the Great Dividing Range of New South Wales to western Victoria and southern Queensland as well as far eastern South Australia. Sudell’s frogs typically inhabit ponds, dams, ditches, and other areas of still water in woodland shrubland and even disturbed areas. They are also accomplished burrowers, spending large periods of time underground to avoid droughts.

Musically speaking, I would say that the basic element of the russian school is the legato. When I was young, all I ever heard was: “More legato!” The treatment of the legato is the reason that many people associate the Russian school with a thick, rich tone and a great dynamic range.
