David Bowie

I'm not going to batter on about how great DB was and his influence on popular music, style, and culture. Many others will do that both today and in the coming weeks. No, all I want to do is thank publicly DB for the effect he had on my life: that it is more than okay to be, according to 'normal' society, different, odd, unusual, weird. To not follow the crowd but to be true to yourself and do what makes you happy and not to do what is necessarily expected of you by 'normal' society.

The Hat Squad

This gang has been bimbling along for awhile now so I for one am glad they're finished. I have gone for the double figure idea once again: one in town clothes and one in adventuresome gear. They're a bit of an odd bunch and not all of them wear a hat. The figures are a mix of Copplestone, Bob Murch & Empress. Here they are:

Outside Ottomanelli's in downtown Pulpville
LtoR Brad Sterling, Boats Bailey, Ripcord O'Reilly, Jim Trueman, Smoot Schmid

Up on the roof

Dr Jim Trueman
Archaeologist &  Adventurer

Ripcord O'Reilly
Can fly anything.

Boats Bailey
It is, he likes to be clean shaven and sharply suited when not afloat 

Brad Sterling
Note how pale he is in town and how easily he tans when adventuring!

Smoot Schmid
Enjoys the finer things. A lot.
