Slenderman, slenderman, where for art thou, slenderman…

Slenderman-irl

The first time I ever heard about the Slenderman, was when one of my kids mentioned it to me, and asked if I ever heard of the legend (as if it was real) To which I told him that it was probably made up, as I’d not heard about it at any time. He and my daughter point out refused to believe me and even now, they still hold a mixed view on just where they stand in regard to the whole thing.

Grinning Skull Creative update, and we’ve scored 250,000+ hits…

25 Apr

Long time no post!! Hi everyone, just taking a break in my busy schedule to do some long overdue updates here, and I just wanted to let you know that I’ve just finally added a couple of pages to the site that are intended to show and catalogue some of the work I have done in a shameless attempt to ply my wares, which incidentally will from now on, go under the banner of Grinning Skull Creative Studios.

In the menu, you will now find a page for miniature sculpting services (which also has a small gallery of my works for you to have a browse) and another page for Wargames Terrain Services with another gallery at past and present examples of stuff.

I’ll be adding more and more new material (and old when I find it about) over time, so please do feel free to come and have a check back to see the pics. Of course let me know if you might require me to do any of the above for your own projects by contacting me via the forms on the pages, or just use the contact page to email me if you want to get in touch.

For fans of the blog, please don’t worry, I haven’t given up, just been busy getting stuff done and hoping to generate more stuff to put up on here for your entertainment, I really want to get back into focusing on the wargaming aspects of the site as well, so the creative bit gives me ample chance to get making stuff that I hope you’ll enjoy (hopefully!) Of course I’ll still be keeping it real with segments like Crowdfunding Spotlight and I have a few new ideas for regular segments that I think you’ll like as well (but I’ll tell you later…)

Again, feel free to check out the new pages as I’m sure there are quite a few new bits you probably haven’t seen, and I’ll be updating these as frequently as possible to keep things fresh!

Also thanks to everyone for visiting the site in these last couple of years, and I’m happy to let you know that we’ve now hit the 250,000 hit mark, and to me at least this feels like another milestone with the Grinning Skull. I don’t know if this is a lot, but frankly it does to me and I’m really greatful that so many of you have wanted to read my babble over this short time!! So thank you, each and everyone of you that have graced these pages and put up with me!!

Here’s to another 250,000!!!

Clown News: Creepy Staten Island clown, Manchester and Cambridge Clowns also on the loose!!

3 Apr

 

CLOWN NEWS

Here’s something I never thought I’d be revisting, but once again I’m back with more new Clown News, a feature that has been rather popular here on the Grinning Skull blog. Ok, so I thought as many did, that the clown craze was just a fad that had died out, but I was wrong.

Not to be out done by us Brits, across the pond, a familiar face seems to have taken a vacation to the US, and as you can plainly see, now the Staten Island area of NY has aquired their very own northampton clown lookie-likie! Could it be either that he’s taking a holiday, or that he has cloned (or should I say Clowned!) himself?

America beware, the clowns are coming!! (please note: this was trecently revealed as a publicity stunt, so still the UK seems the home of the creepy clowns!)

Creepy Staten Island clown spotted around borough, spooks residents  – NY Daily News.

Also back at the beginning of march, there was more clown madness in the North west of England, with even more reports of clowing around, another indication that things were far from over regarding creepy clown sightings…

And now there are reports of a new clown criminal on the scene, this time down south in Cambridge, will the craze ever stop? Everytime there seems to be a lull in the sightings, up pop more costumed weirdos! Full story on auntie beeb’s website here:

Even back in January, the MET revealed they were dealing with over a hundred clown related incidents…

Is this all an indication that we are about to see a resurgence of costumed chaos?

Only time will tell…..

The Walking Dead: Season 4: Episode 14; The Grove

18 Mar

s4

So episode 14 is upon us, not long I fear until the season finale, I’m hoping that this end of season 4 finishes with a little more of a flourish than these past few episodes, but I aint given up on the series just yet! I don’t want to give you any spoilers of this one, but all I can say is, this is probably the best one in this half of the season. It’s very sad, so the sensitive of you might need your hankies at the ready!

links below are for The Walking Dead, season 4, episode 14: The Grove, and the aftershow Talking Dead, put your pop up blockers on before you click to be safe (not from zombies, just pop-ups!) and enjoy the weekly slice of zomer related madness!
