Apathy, My Apathy


I'm feeling very French today.

*le sigh*

Apathy.  Uh.

You know, I've never really understood the moods the Master Manipulator (every store needs one) and Little Barrera go through with miniature games - over the past few decades, I'm almost always interested.

Not so much, since Feast.  It's a combination of things, including the weather change and a busy work schedule.

I've tried to fight it.  Let's see what I've been (forcing) working on:

I cleaned my workspace - then I needed something to work on (that wasn't a Brotherhood model).  I decided to try blocking out colors on some models that are sitting on my desk.

Still a ways to go.  I've got the metal to work, next, then I'll officially begin painting it.

Not sure what that means.  Not sure of anything.  Apathy, my apathy.

I'm repairing a model's base...

Not done here yet either.

I threw together a list for City Fight...

I actually think it would be a fun list to play...

...but I'm sure it requires some sort of effort.

And I don't wanna.

*le sigh*

Je n'ai pas veux

I can feel ya Brent. IF you are curious what happens with me...take a look in your closet. Count the games I have talked you into buying into and we don't play often.

That is what happens when I get into those moods. I get bored or tired of 40K and it leads me to one of my other games. Since I am not really bored with 40K, that other game does not help. That leads me to start looking at new games. Guess what, that new game normally does not help a lot because, I am not really bored of 40K.

What I have realized recently, and I do mean recently, is that most of the time I just need to stop. Stop working on models, stop looking for something new, stop playing. Let my attitude get to center for a few weeks and then normally all is good.

Although, lately I have had the urge, but my room is a mess and I have no time. Go figure.

I get t5his too. Basically, any time I don't blog for over a week, that's what's happening...which, yeah, is frequent, and often.

I blame real life, but the truth is that I could find the time if I could find the interest.

The most important thing is to keep your toe in so you find it easier to return when the interest returns...Chatbawx is perfect for this. :)

I get this more often than I want to admit. It helps that I work at a game store full of different games to keep me somewhat distracted.

I've felt your pain but not right now...I've GK to pant and play with.

I want to do 'pretty army' next year.

I want to work on my Confrontation Orcs too.

I just don't have any space right now.

Then there is the dual pally Drago list I'm thinking of putting together to go with my purifiers.

My DE need paint and a re-work.

See that's how it happens. Project overload.

A lot of times, getting away from what you are currently working on (brotherhood) and doing a one-off start to finish as a change of pace can help.

Apathy derives from greek, wich is 'Απάθεια'. And french wotn say 'le sigh' they are gonna say something liek 'merde'=shit/fuck :p .

(A new favorite!) Anon: I haven’t even bothered playing a game of 6th yet, cause I have read the rules, and actually understand how they interact with units. I know my armies no longer function how they should, and so I need to change them.

Strictly Average: 'cause 6-inches is all you get.

Stalking Jawaballs since 2009.

Jawaballs: "My butt just tightened up."

Brent, preferred 2-to-1 over Not Brent in a recent, scientific poll.

Brent: emptied the Kool Aid and DRINKING YOUR MILKSHAKE with an extra-long straw.

Unicorns don't exist.

Home of the Stormbuster, the Dyson Pattern Storm Raven.

I'm a comment whore and this whore is getting no play.

Not Brent hurts Brent's feelings.

I think, therefore I blog.

"You should stop writing for everyone else and worry about your crappy blog." - Anon.

Not Brent has been spotted lurking around with a green marker.

He's not like a bad guy from a cartoon, all devious but never quite evil, Not Brent is bad beans, man, bad beans.

Dethtron: "Again I feel obliged to remind you that trying to sound smart only works if you are."

MVB: "I am not one to join the unwashed masses of self-titled 40k experts out there distributing advice from their blogs about exactly how your list should be built..."

Shiner Bock on tap: that's how I choose hotels.

Strictly Average: The Home of Hugs and Gropings.

Don't feed the trolls!

MoD: "Welcome to Brent's head."

Competitive is Consistent.

Dethtron: "...you could use that extra time to figure out a way to get your panties unbunched and perform a sandectomy on your vagina."

Dethtron: “When calling someone an idiot, it's generally best to avoid making grammatical mistakes.”

Warboss Stalin: "You know, if it actually WAS funny, maybe I wouldn't mind."

Mike Brandt: "It's not a successful bachelor party if you don't misplace someone".

"The Master Manipulator (every store needs one): "...now, enough stroking."

Kirby: "I don't know about gropings. Seriously, Brent, keep it in the pants, please."

Loquacious: "No matter how hard I tried, I couldn't get Hugs & Gropings or Stalks Jawaballs into Brent's little tribute."

Captain Kellen: "I rate this article a Brent on the Faith Hill to Nancy Pelosi scale!"

Drathmere: "Come for the balls, stay for the Brent? Kind of disturbing, man."

Go no further, lest thee see something thine eyes would fain look past!

Isabelle: "So, thank you for supporting your local and not so local unicorns. A noble gesture like that can show some scared kids out there that they don't have to hide from everyone and it's ok to be who they really are."

There is nothing more interesting than We The People... in all our beautiful, ugly glory!

On Internet Advice: You see, I have an almost religious belief that's it's a huge, colossal waste of time.

...I think I'll call it the Gun Shy Pattern Stormbuster, because after the Internet destroyed my first humble effort, I find I'm a bit worried about the reaction to this one.

Lauby: "Is it left over from that time you thought that you could just complete step one 12 times to meet the mandates of that court order?"

Not Brent: "I guess we'll have to read on and find out. Signed, Not Brent. Especially today."

Cynthia Davis: "I think the scrolling text is from Glen Beck's new book."

Grimaldi: "Spamming certain units creates interesting possibilities but also fatal weaknesses."

Purgatus: "Math can inform decisions. It cannot make decisions."

Thoughts? Comments? Hugs and gropings?

You'd be that much quicker to figure out what I mean when I refer to a Unicorn if I covered it in a rainbow flag.

SinSynn: (To Brent) "Curse you and your insidious influence on the internets..."

Dave G (N++): "You know you're an internet celebrity when your following is more akin to tabloids."

I prefer the term Internet Personality (or IP) myself, seeing as how I coined it.

Lauby: "Your attempt to humanize him as failed. I feel nothing but scorn for his beard - it's like a warcrime or something."

BBF: "I've always thought you are a good player but I finally figured out that you are a great player. It's hard to see sometimes because your personality is engaging, sincere and quite charming - to me that is kind of a rare combination."

'Clearly cheating?' I didn't misspeak: you jumped to conclusions. If you'd like to apologize I'll be happy to send you an autographed picture of my ass.


I thought I was doing alright before I realized I was losing.

Age and treachery beats youth and vigor every time.
