Off Topic / Re: Post your tattoos....

Aha, a tattoo thread! Great to see people here with loads of ink.  I keep seeing reference to Rufus's tattoos, but the pic links seem to have expired? I'm curious to see - does anyone have a working link?

Anyway, mine is very much a work in progress, but here it is so far:

Currently Simon, my tattooist, is moving studios so it's going to be another month before he continues with it.  He's darkening the background and finishing up the colours, then it's done.

...because I was sent the DROKK album, I picked up the Dave Gibbons Dr Who anthology, and Minecraft was released on the 360!  Yay! A good couple of days.

Oops, I have just noticed in the forum rules you need to restrict image sizes to 800 px in sizes.  I think my DROKK t-shirt was more than that - sorry!!!  I'll bear it in mind for any more I post.

Donald 'Duck' Dunn?!? No way!  Damn shame - he was a bearded pipe smoking legend of a bass player.  Hmm, must dig out the Blues Brothers and watch tonight, in his honour.

There's also the bonus of the 8 extra tracks.

Corporate pimp!

He's right though, and to my shame I've been so busy listening to the CD and strutting around like a peacock in my new t-shirt I completely forgot to download them! Thanks for the reminder!

I hope this is the appropriate thread to discuss the album/CD.  I got the bunker edition (plus t-shirt)the other day, and have been absorbing it since.  I absolutely adore it!  It's hard to describe, but it's more of a themed soundscape than, I dunno, the traditional tunes and melodies I'm so used to listening to.  It is so wonderfully evocative of Dredd and his world.  I think the nearest thing I can relate it to is some kind of Escape From New York/Blade Runner feel.

Anyway, for what it's worth, I recommend it! 

Also, awesome t-shirt. I love clothes that are meaningless to all but those in the know (such as the lastexittonowhere stuff) and this is one of them.

Well, my outfit is on order.  The chaps at Planet Replicas seemed very friendly, as I was confused over the belt size, and had to fire off a few emails before submitting my custom sizes.  I get the impression they are very busy - it makes me curious about the number of people ordering uniforms!

Out of interest, can I have a show of hands if you have the uniform, or have ordered one?  We could have enough for a large squad of judges!  A comics convention or other gathering where we turn up in force would be so drokking cool!  :o

Howdy folks. I couldn't find an 'introductions' thread, so this'll have to do.  I'm 39, and have been a 2000AD fan since I was about 11. I used to spend hours and hours drawing and painting Dredd - my bedroom walls were festooned with my efforts.  Dillon and Bolland were my fave artists at the time. I even painted Dredd on The underside of my skateboard!  If I can dig out an old pic of it, i will post it here somewhere. I'm currently loving Henry Flints work!

Anyway, like an idiot I was influenced by a woman when in my twenties, who considered comics 'childish' so had a break from 2000AD for a bit then. My present partner is much more forgiving, being a gamer and XMen fan, but after me leaving progs on every surface she got pissed off and made me cancel my subscription.

Hurrah for digital downloads! Thanks to these I'm now back into 2000AD and loving it.  My partner is still trying to persuade me to sling the boxes of old progs on top of our wardrobe, but she's a lot happier now my new progs are limited to a folder on my PC!!!

I need to get some back progs though - I've come into the whole Chaos thing halfway through, and it looks like I need to go all the way back to PJ escaping the cubes.

Anyway, sorry for the rambling post - in a nutshell, 39, and back in the 2000AD fold!
