My new Silverball Arcade construction is 80% complete and can not contain an extremely large crowd. After PinCon I'll hold something larger with the bette...

Re: New beginnings - End of an era

When I first heard about all of this it was a slap in the face. I didn't know what to say so I said nothing. I still don't really know what to say. It's not a damn eulogy. The first thing to hit me was Robert being a great friend and going through this life-changing event. Sometimes things in life t...

Re: Container Pins Discussion

I would really like a time fantasy. I'm easy to please.

It's fun to think about the whole container thing but it's not practical anymore. How many can be safely shipped in a container anyway?

For sure there will be pins for sale. The closer we get to PinCon the more we see coming up for sale. This is one of the big reasons for the convention. It stimulates trade.

No I tried. I could only get the one for security purposes. The venue is 100% secure and has cameras and alarms. Voyageur Campground is about 15 minutes down the road. I like it there.

Bump. Great-looking job and I might bother you in the near future to do my big blues in lightning whatever your cost is. I pulled them out and they're warped. They also feel rubbery. Might need to do some kind of pre-mold in the straightening jig and then do a final mold. If you're interested, I'll ...

No way, and if I did I'd be doing some serious research on the artist and products used first. Too many people doing tattoos and not knowing what is in the ink.
