November 13th, 2006, 10:17 AM
yeah, we just watched the last 4 episodes of Lost yesterday, I'm kinda bummed they're taking a break until Feb 7.
but, I should definitely be at the diner this Wed!
November 13th, 2006, 10:20 AM
Yeah...like I said...Hell, Highwater or Horseshit...
Im in!...see you guys there.
November 14th, 2006, 09:49 PM
Nice! I'm definitely in, although I doubt I can get there before 7 or so. Is Sartell out of state? If not and you wanna carpool let me know. See y'all tomorrow.
November 15th, 2006, 06:40 AM
Hey Oats..yeah..as far as I know Sartell is in FLA at school, so I would
imagine you'd have a bit of a go carpooling. :)
We'll be at the way back table probably the huge one on the left as you enter.
November 15th, 2006, 10:56 AM
anyone heard from Ben yet? He didn't mention it on Saturday (and I forgot to ask).
November 15th, 2006, 11:13 AM
Nope not yet. Monswear Foster...where you at?
November 15th, 2006, 06:17 PM
Sorry guys. Worky work.
November 15th, 2006, 06:30 PM
I'll be leaving in a minutes..
November 16th, 2006, 10:59 AM
Hey guys, had a great time last night, thanks again for inviting me. Mikel, here's a link for new movie coming out soon, I remember you asked if there was anything on the horizon...
Also, Helzon, I thought about your project more on the drive home. Check out some Day of the Dead motifs, and give some thoughts to themes and imagery related to scary things that are small. Like those creepy kids in the grudge movies, or bugs and such. I dunno, couple things to mull over.
November 16th, 2006, 11:04 AM
Mike(Oats) hey man...you're welcome anytime we get together..a chair will always be open for you. As for the project there..great imagery! Will definitely incorporate that...along with that voodoo idea as well. Thanks a whole lot!
November 19th, 2006, 07:05 PM
Hey I almost forgot, here is the link to the travel poster site. Enjoy!
November 28th, 2006, 07:59 AM
As for this week gents...im out...got a shit load on the plate and not near enough time to deal with it. Next week for sure.
November 28th, 2006, 07:19 PM
eek! I read "shit ... on the plate" and thought you were either telling us about a health code violation at the diner or telling us what do since you wouldn't be there! :)
yeah, I'm better off saving the time and money by sticking to home tomorrow night. Next week then!
December 6th, 2006, 01:57 PM
:sigh: Ok....looks like Brendan and I are out this week.
December 11th, 2006, 04:40 AM
I might be able to make it next week guys, i'll keep you posted:)
Like, for real~*
December 11th, 2006, 10:26 AM
Sorry I missed last week. I had a few extra rum drinks for you guys. ;)
Joel-- keep us in the loop. You might just make me change my plans this week. (or are you talking 12/20?)
December 11th, 2006, 10:33 AM
Cool...i'll definitely make it out there.
See ya guys there.
December 11th, 2006, 11:17 AM
12/20, yeah i shoulda been more precise~*. I should be back from insomnia on monday night:)
December 11th, 2006, 08:54 PM
want to make it a definite meet on the 20th? I'm looking like a no-go for the 13th (would you believe something different on my wife's car has broken just about every week of the last 6 weeks?).
December 11th, 2006, 09:40 PM
Yeah..okay..20th it is! wow..when in doubt...duct tape bro! ;)
jk...hope it works out for you.
December 12th, 2006, 08:19 PM
I can make the 20th as well, I've been looking forward to coming up again. I actually have a project to work on too!
December 19th, 2006, 07:45 PM
I'm still up for meeting tomorrow, how is it looking for everyone else?
December 19th, 2006, 07:47 PM
A little tough for me right now. I'm off work between Christmas and New Years, though. Maybe we can get together up here for a little bigger "to do"?
December 26th, 2006, 08:42 PM
so what's the word? I'm up in the air about tomorrow, holiday/family stuff left me a little behind on my digital work.
December 27th, 2006, 12:01 PM
I'm going to be a no show for tonight. Next week looks good though.
January 3rd, 2007, 07:49 PM
Looks like I picked the wrong week to actually show up. I figured with Joel back in town someone would actually be there...
January 3rd, 2007, 09:58 PM
wtf....I didn't have time to check the thread & post my no-show, but I figured since I didn't get any email notif's of anyone else posting I was safe to just go home after work.
January 5th, 2007, 01:09 PM
I thought you'd give me a call Ben!! I'm comin this week no problem, is anyone else in?
January 9th, 2007, 07:34 PM
well it only took 3 tries to load the page, but I'll be there, dammit!
January 9th, 2007, 08:08 PM
I should be there.
January 10th, 2007, 08:58 AM
I'm pretty sure I'm out this week. Damn!!!
January 15th, 2007, 03:39 PM
My name is Chris. I am so happy that I came across this forum. I have been looking for a gathering like this for some time now.
You can definitely count me in the next time you guys get together!
January 15th, 2007, 05:33 PM
No promises, but i will try.
January 15th, 2007, 06:56 PM
Chris makes his first post!
Mike, I would definitely be glad to see yah!
I should be able to make it, nothing will prevent me, afaik.
January 23rd, 2007, 10:54 PM
so mike and I have mentioned going via email/txt msg, but no one has posted here yet: I'll be there tomorrow!
January 24th, 2007, 08:45 AM
I think I'm out this week. Have fun guys!
January 24th, 2007, 09:38 AM
Just texted Brendan...im still in for this week. Hope to see you next week then ben for more than

February 6th, 2007, 09:08 PM
Yep should be there..have to return all the goodies.
See ya at 7 or before then.
February 20th, 2007, 08:25 AM
Is this thing DOA or is everyone still trying to make it work. Let me know I like to come up and check it out.
February 20th, 2007, 08:46 AM
haha...nah bro...it's still kickin! Probably assumed that no one was going due to the ice storm last week. But I should be there barring plagues of locust and rivers running red. :)
See ya there.
February 20th, 2007, 07:05 PM
yeah, I'll be there too
February 21st, 2007, 03:06 PM
I can't make it up there tonight but I will aim for next wed. What is the address where you guys meet?
February 21st, 2007, 03:09 PM
New Britain Diner Restaurant
1130 Corbin Av
New Britain CT 06053
Alrighty bro, hope to meet you next week then.
February 21st, 2007, 03:32 PM
Still up in the air at this point. Depends on when I can get out of work, but if I'm there it'll be on the early side of the night...
(Still recovering from the pain of a late night and a Wii....Damn you Dan!!!)
February 27th, 2007, 07:11 PM
Well Tuesday's on us again gents...Who's showin up?

March 6th, 2007, 07:17 PM
yep, I'll be there, too
March 7th, 2007, 04:05 PM
I think im in if you guys are going.
March 9th, 2007, 03:53 PM
Hey Guys, sorry I haven't been around much lately(you may not have noticed-that's fine) I am completely overloaded at work and with schoolwork at home, so I don't even have time for casual perusing of CA let alone participation. If I get some breathing room, I will try to come up. I really get in a good groove up there, should encourage that.
March 10th, 2007, 12:51 PM
Hey bro...of course we noticed...it's just we didn't post it up here.
It's good to know you're busy and things are progressing...yeah
if you get a chance and want to make it up that's just fine man.
Glad that you get into a good vibe.
March 13th, 2007, 04:35 PM
Tuesday again...anyone in for tomorrow?
March 13th, 2007, 07:34 PM
I think I'm out for tomorrow, got stuff to do at home and my cat's vet mugged me tonight :P
March 13th, 2007, 08:59 PM
Ok bro..next week then.
Have a good time at Lunacon!
March 14th, 2007, 05:04 PM
Yeah Im not gonna be able to make it either, too damn busy this week : ) Maybe next wed though.
March 20th, 2007, 09:22 PM
so who's free to meet up tomorrow? I can be there.
March 20th, 2007, 09:24 PM
Sounds cool, I'll try.
March 26th, 2007, 01:56 PM
I'm not new to CA in general, but just registered since Lunacon. I met a bunch of local/semi-local artists there.
Hey Se7en, sorry I didn't get to introduce myself - but you took a quick look at my book on friday nite in the bar with the whole gang. I was talking with Arkady and Greg and didn't get a chance to introduce myself.
If you're still doing Tuesday nites I can try to make it by - I'm probably a little more than an hour away tho, so not sure.
Let me know what the schedule looks like. Is it always Tuesday? Every Tuesday?
March 26th, 2007, 09:04 PM
It's 7pm most Wednesdays at the New Britain Diner, map. (http://www.mapquest.com/maps/map.adp?country=US&address=1130%20Corbin%20Ave&city=New%20Britain&state=CT&zipcode=&homesubmit.x=31&homesubmit.y=11)
We'll be happy to have ya there. I must have missed you at Lunacon, I was up there on Saturday night.
So fellas, are we on this week? I can make it there.
March 26th, 2007, 09:06 PM
Yeah...barring any unforseen things..should be there.
March 27th, 2007, 03:37 PM
Hey Bud whats up? I remember you dude, well looking through your book anyway. Cool stuff.
Don't think I can make it this week, too busy. Maybe next wed I can get up there.
March 27th, 2007, 03:43 PM
Well if Shay's out, I don't see any point in coming. :P
Seriously, though, I think I'm going to need to bail. Too much stuff to wrap up this week on the easel, on top of other commitments. Hopefully can catch up with you guys next week.
March 27th, 2007, 07:51 PM
ah-hem, by easel commitments, I hope you mean new paintings. hit us with wips if you can!
April 4th, 2007, 08:08 AM
Im out this week.
Perhaps next Wed fellas.
In the meanwhile...have a good holiday.
April 5th, 2007, 12:29 AM
I would definitely like to make it by some wednesday...
It's probably a little over an hours drive for me, so I don't think I'll be a weekly regular.
You all just bring sketch pads? Is there some kind of topic, or just draw whatever?
Looking forward to meeting everyone.
April 5th, 2007, 09:06 AM
yeah that's a haul to make it up to NB Diner of all places...(not exactly shangrila)
Yeah we all bring pads...as for topic: none really, it's usually whatever anyone is working on at the moment.
Yeah..looking forward to meeting you as well...caught a glimpse of your Image work...very tight.
April 10th, 2007, 06:53 PM
Ok, i texted Brendan and he's out...and so am i..so definitely next week.
April 17th, 2007, 08:14 PM
Well here it is...tuesday once more...what's the good word?
I can make it, anyone else?
April 17th, 2007, 08:19 PM
I'm 90% I'm out, but pretty sure I (and the new tabletpc) will be in for next week.
April 24th, 2007, 10:12 PM
I'm a no-go for tomorrow, sorry fellas!
April 25th, 2007, 07:08 AM
Ok...next week perhaps then gents.
April 25th, 2007, 11:09 AM
Doh! I'm in this week! tablet and all!!
May 2nd, 2007, 12:57 PM
Ok..i take it this week is off then gents...
Will hope for better circumstances and schedules for next week.
May 9th, 2007, 09:23 AM

May 16th, 2007, 07:25 AM
Im out for tonight...fell way behind on stuff and need to kick it in the
Next week guys.
May 16th, 2007, 09:15 AM
just as well, I have lots of digital work to do and not so much pencil. next time then!
May 29th, 2007, 10:29 AM
ok, just talked to Helzon on IM, we're both in for tomorrow night. I'll assume mikel to be there unless he says otherwise.
June 5th, 2007, 06:17 PM
I'll be there tomorrow and I received a call from Mr Joel Sartell (yes, I don't know your last name, and yes, that is how you are entered in the contact list of my cell phone) on Sunday! He's back in the fair state of Connecticut and he'll be at the diner tomorrow, too.
Mike Helzon said over IM yesterday that he'll be there as well.
This may be a corner booth night... :)
June 11th, 2007, 01:36 PM
Im out. Next week perhaps.
June 11th, 2007, 01:40 PM
just as well, I have a bunch of digi color work to do and next weekend looks busy with family stuff.
June 19th, 2007, 12:13 PM
so! looks like Helzon and I will be there tomorrow night... Joel? Ben? anyone else?
June 19th, 2007, 08:54 PM
Joel tells me via txt msg that he will be there, too. :)
July 3rd, 2007, 02:50 PM
whoa! finally got in.
Since tomorrow is Independence Day, most of us are likely busy, we'll try to meet up next week.
July 10th, 2007, 08:44 AM
well here's hoping all the stars are in alignment..should be there.
July 10th, 2007, 09:05 AM
ok, cool, I'm working in Norwalk tomorrow, should be able to get there by 7 (traffic on the Merrit Parkway can be a kick in the nuts).
July 14th, 2007, 07:18 PM
Hi everyone. I just wanna say in Connecticut there's the most beautiful girls what i seeing all my life! ;)
July 17th, 2007, 07:53 AM
Im out for this week, and i heard from MikeL and he is as well.
So next week then.
Best to you all.
July 17th, 2007, 07:36 PM
np, I have enough work to get done this week that I'd be better off spending the time at home grinding the wheels.
July 25th, 2007, 05:18 PM
well, no one ever posted, but I can't make it. Got one pile of stuff to finish by Friday, and two other piles to finish next week.
hopefully we can get together on the 1st...
July 31st, 2007, 06:18 PM
OK. So who's in for tomorrow?
July 31st, 2007, 06:58 PM
I should be able to make it.
July 31st, 2007, 09:16 PM
sorry guys, I have a bunch of stuff to do and I'm working on-site all week, evenings are the only time I have to finish projects.
August 7th, 2007, 08:08 AM
Im out for this week conflicting plans.
August 7th, 2007, 07:52 PM
np, I can't make it tomorrow either. hopefully next week will look better.
August 14th, 2007, 09:24 PM
Ok, I'm in for tomorrow, sorry for the indecision hope you guys are still available!
August 14th, 2007, 11:51 PM
Should be there.
October 25th, 2007, 12:46 AM
Hey all, just wanted to say hi. I'm in the Glastonbury area.
October 25th, 2007, 12:51 AM
to answer your question from GA, I'm unfortunately the one with the most 3d knowledge of the current crew. If you were hanging out a year or more ago, you could have chatted with Oracrest, he's currently doing 3d with Retro out in Austin.
We'll have to see if we can get everyone together soon, I was busy tonight and I think Helzon's car was in the shop.
October 25th, 2007, 12:57 AM
No problem. I'm free most nights, Wednesdays shouldn't be a big problem.
I really need to get a better grasp of highpoly stuff & normal/spec stuff.
October 25th, 2007, 12:59 AM
yeah, unfortunately, I can't help you there at all!
my 3d skills extend only as far as what you can see on my website.
October 25th, 2007, 01:03 AM
That's cool, I definitely can use the kick in the butt to draw more, heh!
Speaking of which, did you see the Arena Net post of Guild Wars stuff here? un-believable.. those guys are my idols..
November 12th, 2007, 12:54 PM
Wednesday is looking pretty good for me this week. Who else is in?
November 13th, 2007, 08:18 PM
I'm out, sorry, got too much work to do at home... next week will probably be no good either due to Thanksgiving.
November 27th, 2007, 03:04 PM
Yet another Wednesday is approaching.
How's tomorrow looking for people?
March 4th, 2008, 11:27 PM
Anyone in for tomorrow?
March 5th, 2008, 09:02 AM
yep, I'm finally available again!! I'd like to try to meet up with you guys again, the drive to norwalk is a killer, I just don't fancy driving an extra 15 miles north every week, but once a month should be cool.
March 5th, 2008, 10:21 AM
Ahh buggers, this week is a bust. Im sorry fellas. Will have to give it a go another time. Sorry to get hopes up.
March 5th, 2008, 12:15 PM
no troubles, I'll have to plan ahead with more time anyhow! :)
March 11th, 2008, 10:27 PM
we meeting @ the NB diner tomorrow?
March 11th, 2008, 10:50 PM
I'm not 100% sure since I supposed to meet some people for dinner. I did talk to Helz though, and as of now he seems to be able to make it.
Let me figure out if I can chage things up a little bit on my end and I'll get back to people.
March 11th, 2008, 11:32 PM
yeah im good to go, if you guys are.
March 12th, 2008, 09:49 AM
ok, I'll plan to be there for 7, but I'll check here again through out the day to see if your plans change.
March 13th, 2008, 11:55 AM
Damn. I should check in here more often. I would have loved to show up and buy Mike the congratulatory beer... for getting into SPECTRUM!!! Bastard. :P
March 14th, 2008, 08:07 PM
Psht! all of the beer at the NB diner is warm anyhow. We'll have to plan a get together on the weekend with some proper brews.
March 29th, 2009, 10:25 PM
Wow, a little more than a year to the day:
Any CT-ites in the area cool for a get together? I'm just outside Waterbury for the next couple of months.
