@beornmod the weekend window for eclipse activity will be Aug 18-21 just FYI

beornmod 2017-07-09 17:55:58  

I'm currently scheduled for work the 18th-22nd, but I may be able to go for the day on Monday

blackhat 16 2017-07-09 17:57:26  

If you try to go somewhere Monday, you won't get very far I think. The eclipse is at 10 something in the morning, and we speculate that freeways and highways will be jammed.

beornmod 2017-07-09 17:58:35  

Well I should be getting off at 430 on Sunday

blackhat 16 2017-07-09 17:58:56  

If I understand correctly, we all plan on being done with operation sonnenrad by Sunday night and all camped together somewhere very remote to watch the eclipse in the morning.

beornmod 2017-07-09 17:59:20  

Okay, I'll talk it over with some of the goys this Tuesday

beornmod 2017-07-09 17:59:48  

Sounds like we should be able to figure something out

Jimmy Marr 2017-07-09 18:05:16  

Nothin' will eclipse muh activism.

Jimmy Marr 2017-07-09 18:08:15  

All hands on deck will be needed to hold banner, so you boys should plan on wearing your Cascadia flags as capes, mkay?

Jimmy Marr 2017-07-09 18:11:00  

We're gonna be like caped crusaders in Batman masks. Too bad we don't have dirt bikes to skirt traffic.

Jimmy Marr 2017-07-09 18:12:18  

This what we need funds for.

beornmod 2017-07-09 18:12:24  

I thought you didn't like crusaders Jimmy

beornmod 2017-07-09 18:12:54  

>we fund ourselves into becoming an MC

beornmod 2017-07-09 18:12:56  


Jimmy Marr 2017-07-09 18:13:03  

Yeah, well, I'm "flexible" on certain applications.

beornmod 2017-07-09 18:13:30  

If they're crusading yids and hadjis, it all good

Jimmy Marr 2017-07-09 18:13:48  

As long as it looks cool.

Jimmy Marr 2017-07-09 18:14:06  

And makes lots of noise, I'm down with it.

beornmod 2017-07-09 18:14:34  

Is that why you like the bagpipes so much?

Jimmy Marr 2017-07-09 18:14:47  


beornmod 2017-07-09 18:15:49  

Lol I mentioned something about that night with the bagpipes at the LL in the DS Discord server a few weeks ago and Weev goes "Wait, are you with the PDX Stormers?"

beornmod 2017-07-09 18:17:06  

I'm pretty happy with how far that story went

Jimmy Marr 2017-07-09 18:17:27  

If we can't raise the money for dirt bikes, we can at least get @BotsRob up there with his chainsaw to make the sounds and we'll just run around like we're on air bikes.

Jimmy Marr 2017-07-09 18:18:58  

With the capes and all, I doubt any spectators will be the wiser, especially if @Uberhat is involved.

beornmod 2017-07-09 18:19:13  

Or we could try to chain up the saw to a normal bike's spokes

beornmod 2017-07-09 18:20:53  

>Antifa tries to jump us but they find us running in circles around @BotsRob revving a chainsaw

beornmod 2017-07-09 18:21:39  

>Antifa slowly backs away

Jimmy Marr 2017-07-09 18:23:33  

Once you get south of Wilsonville you can forget about encountering any serious group of antifags unless you give them notice well in advance.

Jimmy Marr 2017-07-09 18:26:28  

To be on the safe side, we should probably keep a garbage can nearby as a decoy for them to attack.

Jimmy Marr 2017-07-09 23:30:09  

Ten feet of resistance:

Jimmy Marr 2017-07-09 23:31:51

khimære 2017-07-09 23:33:58  

so how did you make this one?

khimære 2017-07-09 23:34:01  


khimære 2017-07-09 23:34:15  

why ten feet of resist?

khimære 2017-07-09 23:34:50  

You think that's the size it ought to be?

DatGoy 2017-07-10 02:08:10  

That's some fine-looking lettering, General Marr.

khimære 2017-07-10 03:03:06  

I do indeed like the lettering

Jimmy Marr 2017-07-10 03:03:41  

@khimære I cut that with the new vinyl cutter. The cut vinyl letters are black and still attached to their white paper liner. Initially the paper liner was completely covered with black vinyl film. The paper backed film is fed through the cutter which lightly scores only the top vinyl layer. Then the vinyl is "weeded", which consists of peeling off reverse image portions. This is the stage shown in the photo.

Jimmy Marr 2017-07-10 03:08:08  

The next step involves rolling out 2ft wide transfer tape over the to pick them up off the paper liner while maintaining their spacing. The transfer tape, with letters attached will then be rolled out onto a vinyl banner substrate, squeegeed down and back rolled to leave on the black letter on white vinyl banner substrate.

Holy shit

Jimmy Marr 2017-07-10 03:09:14  

It's roughly 10 feet long simply because that's how much space six letters of that font happen to take up.
