The problem with using pop-culture references as the punchline for a strange rant is when nobody knows what the hell you're talking about. It goes from strange right to crazy.
There Will Be Blood had Daniel Day Lewis' character use the idea of a milkshake as an analogy for dipping an oil well line into someone's property. Saturday Night Live did a parody I thought was hilarious. Here you go.
So Stelek (The ZombY Master) said I had a tendency of drinking the Kool Aid... another reference, this time to the Jonestown Massacre - and if you don't know that one, go back to school! In this case, he obviously meant I sometimes strayed from the reservation, another reference...
...never mind. Basically, someone drinking the Kool Aid doesn't agree with him. That's funny all by itself.
I wasn't mad about it though. If that's the analogy he's playing around with lately, I certainly fit the bill. I don't always agree with him - or anyone else, for that matter. I'll do what I want, when I want.
Sometimes that's the hard way. I'm stubborn I am.
So I thought, "Huh, drinking Kool Aid isn't agreeing with Stelek, but I want to reserve the right to agree or disagree, get along or not, with whomever I wish. I think I'll coin a new reference on the back of another...
"I drink your milkshake."
I'll sample what I want from Ye Ol' Blogoshere. I'll get along with everyone, or not, however it ends up happening.
I don't think most people want to be straitjacketed to one mindset.
Again though - I'm not angry - it wasn't meant to be insulting, and if so, certainly only vaguely.

The title says it all; this is the first commission work I've taken on that involved painting a complete army. It's fair to say it ...
