Packing up and leaving early I missed all the fun at the Houston show Saturday. Seems a disgruntled contestant charged the podium and demanded to know why his three entries didn't place! It was finally explaind that it was because three others in his category did!

A bit too wound up, I think. Wow!

I have lost out in art shows/contests and never felt the need to do such things.

Mike: Are you going to be in Dallas or Arlington this year?

-D.

You mean you didn't spy my 1/32 Su-30 MKK or ze beeg 1/72 Bison-mit-Buran at Omaha? Look for Bondo's "trademarked" bases with the imitation screwed-down info. panel.

A few years ago a contestant at a show thought he had the greatest sailing ship models ever built. His models didn't place (it would have helped his case had the years accumulation of dust had been removed). After the show he read me the riot act because his models didn't place. He threw his membership card at me and walked away without giving me a chance to explain what the problem was.
He is someone else's problem now...



Look, when a vastly superior alien culture comes all this way to take over your world, certain basic laws of planetary conquest apply. For example, when someone points a Quad Vectored Hypo Thermic Cosmo Blaster at you, it's a fair bet you are about to become toast. And in your case, a whole loaf of toast!
