  1. Oh my I just realized my original response did not post here.. Postcards sounds like a great idea!. Will your exhibition have an online component? My local gallery often also puts selected works from exhibitions up in a gallery on their website, I'd love to be able to see yours.
  2. Dude! I wish I had the funds to buy a print of the bookworm "gone rogue", it is adorable!

    The Tuomas thread

    I think the Freudian slip of "I don"t take it for granted for once" regarding the lineup shows possibly some growth in regards to realizing that communication makes for a happier band.

    Yes damn Bettman, and why should Alaska or Siberia suffer him? Send him to Antarctica! And tbh I think the IOC should now refuse to negotiate with the NHL for 2022. Let's go back to the days of the true Amateurs, in all sports summer and winter. The US is the one that wanted pros so they could send the NBA to Atlanta in 96. And of course it was Brian Boitano who pushed to let the pro figure skaters in and look how long that lasted. They are still eligible under IOC and ISU rules but none bother to even try anymore. @Harvest Your women's team has shown great growth in the past 3 to 5 years and I think your men while still weak in shooting if given the incentive of being the ones to go to the Olympics they can and will improve as more opt to stay home and play in the Liga as well as the SEHL and KHL. Has the Great8 ever coached the national team? I know the Russians in the past have had former players (Fetisov, Bure, Kasatonov) coach theirs. And tbh Leafs of my generation still view Russia as our greatest rival, the whole Summit Series and such., not to mention that the US really don't have the hockey history. The majority of players in the NHL are Canadian with Europe having the next largest group and Russia third. Very few teams have more than 1 or 2 US players. For example the Washington Capitals have 4 US players, 3 Russians, 2 Sweedes, 2 Czech, 1 Dane, 1 German and the rest (13) are Canadian. Also Their HC and 3 of his assistants are Canadian. So is their GM lol. @hunebedbouwer Gimme a break I'm old and tbh have never heard a curling rock being weighed in kgs. As for playing outside they may well do that in other parts of the country or even other parts of my province. Where I'm at we get little to no snow and the temps are more often above zero then below so most ice does not freeze. You have to keep in mind I'm on an equal latitude to Vienna but without the height above sea level. I would love to play on an outdoor rink but would have to move. I do know that about an hour north of me there is an outdoor speed skating oval and two hockey rinks, in the small town of Oromocto!

    Ok I'm guessing I'm the only one here who has actually curled; those rock weigh 40lbs and the ice is sticky which is why you need to sweep. It is very physically demanding and trust me even top curlers arms are sore at the end of a game. Snowcross is insane but imagine doing it on skates, maybe someday that too will make the jump from the X-Games world to the Olympics. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l71e83Q744U And go OAR Men's Hockey defeated the US today!(Any defeat of the US is a good thing in my book) And there Ladies are in position to finish no worse than 4th. It is really nice to see other countries coming on strong in the Women's hockey scene. Finland has done really well too and they are the one's I suspect will win the bronze baring a Swedish win. Rattu(sp?) is one heck of a goalie and I foresee it not being too long before Finland challenges for Gold.

    @hunebedbouwer Hehe it's the heartstopping element that I like about short track but long track is far more about skill for sure. And ya Knegt can be well an interesting character. I never watched short track before but 2 years ago one of my nieces started competing in it and am trying to learn more about it. but damn they have some wild rules. I root for the Orange when they are competing as my Grandmother was from Haarlem so have always watched long track And I hear about the love of as Oma would say "the Leafs and the Tulips" after all it is how I came to be She worked in a cafe in Amsterdam and that is how they met! Irony is that my Grandfather ment my Nan at a cafe in Edinburgh that she worked at. We have always joke the best place to meet a keeper is by working at a cafe.

    Jumping in here @hunebedbouwer did you watch any of the races? The final result in the Womans 500 was wild. Really thought Canada had missed out on a medal in the event. Especially after St-Gelais was eliminated by DQ in her qualifying heat. Congrats on Van Kerkhof''s Silver. @Harvest Yes in the U20 Canada benefited for a Reffing bias. It was visible throughout all of the game. One hopes with the NHL ref's not being at the Olympics we will see a less biased outcome then in the past. Especially in the Ladies as I really think both the Finnish and Swedish teams are strong enough to challenge the Canada and the US. Not sure what to think about the men's but Slovenia's win over the US today is to me exciting

    Figure skating

    Agreed it was a sad ending to an amazing pair. Calgary for me was the Golden era of skating. The years between Sarajevo and Calgary had some of the most artistic programs ever skated. It was the beginning of then end for artistry.
  10. Yes sadly shipping from europe is very expensive. If I were for example to order a T-Shirt direct from Nightwish I'd pay almost 50 euros just for shipping. Poster size if tube rolled is slightly better as it weighs little. For us in NA the big thing is the conversion rate, that added to shipping kills
  11. I have to say I'd love prints of some of these works. Not that I can afford them lol But imo they are very nicely done. I follow both your YouTube and Instagram accounts hence haven't posted on here much.

    Calinnz MULTIMEDIAL topyc!

    Calinn I know where you are coming from with having fibromyalgia take away the ability to do something you love. I was/am a clarinetist and some days I can only play for 10mins before my hands and arms become too sore and tired to continue holding it. I have found that walking does help with pain in the back and legs. I have yet to find anything , including medication, that helps with the upper body. I have been trying some lifting of light weights, 2kg, to see if that will help but so far no improvement. Please keep drawing your working is wonderful, and remember the most important critic is you.

    Nightwish Off Topic

    Well as for potential lazyness I recall a behind the scenes video when BF was getting ready to tour in support of Diamond and he played a whole song in the wrong key because he hadn't read the email advising a key change. I think that may speak to how involved he is with the bands in general.
  15. Oh most certainly I will give credit. Most Likely will simply show them there image from right here in this thread
