  1. Thanks Geoff for organizing this. My first thought was to buy a woman sweat-shirt (size XL because I am tall), with a medium size logo on the front (left hand side) and a larger one in the back? The R logo from RAW is perfect I think. The colour... hmmm... orange like this forum with a black logo might be a bit intrusive. I don't know to what extent Tom is willing to keep the original design? I would prefer black colour with an orange logo of it's possible? But basically I will follow all your decision. I am not too picky I believe. I guess it all depends on which products will be available. A T-shirt instead of a sweat-shirt would also be an idea.
  2. Hi all, I am so happy to see that TJ is interested in science and especially in space exploration. Since that last thread in 2008 (... the joys of exploring this multi-threaded, disciplinary-schizophrene and diverse forum... ;-) a LOT of missions happened and brought adrenalin and bewilderment in our lives. I just wish to share the two past events that gave me MASSIVE GOOSEBUMPS and one fantastic ongoing mission. Did you hear of Rosetta and Philae 4 years ago? https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philae_(spacecraft) I managed to see the "landing" (cometting?) on Tchouri live on the Internet. Besides the scientific responsible full of tattoos and with a comics shirt starting a massive controversy (some people are crazy) http://edition.cnn.com/2014/11/13/living/matt-taylor-shirt-philae-rosetta-project/index.html it was like a good movie with tension, two spaces shuttles, high speed (very high speed) and a mitigated ending while landing on a comet... Another excellent "movie" and marketing at its best was the first launch of Falcon Heavy (Space X) last year in February. I am not a friend of marketing, advertisement and people pushing you to buy shit but this truly was a masterclass in communication. Here again I sat watching the live stream, adrenalin at the maximum, relieved at each step of the launch that succeeded. And THEN... although I knew they were aiming at recovering the boosters and although I had already heard it from previous Space X launches. THEN both boosters came back perfectly and landed simultaneously with just a hint of dust. That was flabbergastering or whatever word there is in English to express awe and admiration. I can still look at that video and feel the goosebumps. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://m.youtube.com/watch%3Fv%3Du0-pfzKbh2k&ved=0ahUKEwi3yYLq7OHhAhWtyYUKHSrNBEAQo7QBCCkwAg&usg=AOvVaw0OxuwL4K9hTXPD1nq48UJI I hope you'll enjoy as much as I do. Let then spend a few words about the ongoing Japanese mission Hayabusa II (not to be mixed up with the ohhh so beautiful motorbike with the same name). Just writing it is incredible. They shoot a spacecraft at an asteroid, circle around it, launch a projectile at the surface and gather asteroid dust during a low orbit fly-by... and THEN bring the samples back home!!! Who can remain insensitive to such a scientific beauty? I'm just saying: goosebumps. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hayabusa2 (Look at the sampling paragraph and the date of the sampling ) this mission will be finished next year and in the meantime I am crossing my fingers. Well people. Enough from me. My opinion: future is right now. Ariane
  3. Appointment at possibly 4 o'clock in the morning duly noted any time is a good time. Really looking forward to it!
  4. I thought it would be easier to get "recognized" during the FedCon with a T-shirt ...
  5. Hi Geoff, do you know if the Raw Shop still exists? I read in one thread that T-Shirts were available but it was several years ago. If not, I'd like to make one. Do you think there might be copyright issues of some kind? Thanks
  6. In this case you'll really have to ask Tom. That's the worst that could happen to you!
  7. Unbelievable. Gail this is great too!
  8. Hi Rosella, I really like it! I think I can understand the fun it was to write it thanks for sharing.
  9. Hello Wraith, welcome aboard! You are not alone... I needed several weeks to mourn Miller. Also I am brain struck with Tom's talent. I love his voice in this final scene. See you around, Ariane
  10. Wow, every single day! respect. The only time I wrote poems was during the tormented time of adolescence. First love, broken heart... I guess a certain level of suffering was necessary for me to be creative. I am still able to get ecstatic and I love the elevated feeling, but do not write poems anymore That being said, I enjoy very much the work of others. If you wish to share one or two, that would be great. Without putting any pressure on you...

    What's the film to not mention? He would have crushed La La Land with all his training from India. And getting out of the comfort zone is sometimes good. Especially for us as audience
  12. Hi Geoff, I found some posts about Moebius here and it seems we share a positive opinion. Enki Bilal was not cited here until now. I would say, lucky you! You still have plenty of Bilal books to discover. Here is some information about him: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enki_Bilal And some pictures: https://www.bing.com/images/search?q=enki+bilal&FORM=HDRSC2 Best regards, Ariane
  13. Dear all, Today is the worldwide Art day. https://www.iaa-usa.org/worldartday Are you doing something special today in order to share the passion of art with relatives and friends? I spent the day at work and the only noticeable novelty today was this song: Best, Ariane
  14. I am sorry. I just noticed that for the second time I posted at the wrong place is it possible to move entries?

    The IMDB summary evokes "future earth". To me it looks like the 60's? Elon's Ripley suit is a "tod" more elegant and real. Anyway I cannot wait to see it and understand what it is about. For sure the suit design has a meaning.

    Wow. Looks hot in there! Certainly not easy to move around.
  17. Hello all, In France, nerd kids grow up with books from Enki Bilal and Moebius in their hands. I was wondering if those names ring a bell? Are they known from comics aficionados all over the world? And the other way around, which books marked your life? (Apart marvel and DC...). I am looking for tips I add here a few pics. Impossible to resist...
  18. Hi there, I live in Aachen, one hour drive to Bonn and I bought my ticket for Saturday June 8th. I am going for the first time to a convention, so I bought an autograph and a photo session, just to be sure not to miss TJ I am sooo impatient. I guess it may seem cruel since I joined today and you are fans since a longer time. But maybe we can organize a Skype event in the evening? Best regards, Ariane.
  19. Hello to you all, reading the past entries it seems I land here in a great group of enthusiastic and creative people. I'm thrilled to have found you. See you around! Ariane Drawing by Enki Bilal.
