Thanks. At this moment I am making my own list by mixing-and-matching interesting words from several of your above resolutions. I know someone who can help on #27. And #5. And #29. I particularly like 11, 12, 22, & 25.

Do you think Amocat would be interested in hosting an evening with the New Takhoman? I'm seeing it as Tacoma's version of Ask Dr. Hal www.askdrhal.com/

if you learn to knit, you can attend my "stitch and bitch" sessions...

40. Learn the secret lost art of Neon signs

#41 (Proposed)

Pass local ordinance that married males over 45-years-old, living and or working in downtown Tacoma are forbidden to address each other as "Dude".

Higher fines to be assessed when term is used to address females, especially when used to converse with relatives, specifically their wives.

Are you listening Marty?... DUDE, Hubbykins, can you hear me?

42. start carving Hobo Nickels


(and exhibit in museum)

by The Jinxmedic on 1/20/2011 @ 2:19pm
Steve Adams' Hobo Nickels are pretty darned awesome, actually. You could ask him for pointers!

by NineInchNachos on 1/20/2011 @ 3:21pm


by The Jinxmedic on 1/20/2011 @ 3:29pm
Cool, hunh? If you want to start on Hobo Nickels, Steve would be happy to talk with you, since you are co-workers and all.

by NineInchNachos on 1/20/2011 @ 4:33pm
must.. find graving tools! I already started hacking pennies I didn't know you call that art form 'hobo pennies' ye gods!

by The Jinxmedic on 1/20/2011 @ 5:12pm
Nickels are used because they are thick, and are a homogenous material throughout. Pennies are thin, and (at least after mid-1982) are copper-plated zinc. Generally, you leave the year of the coin showing. on the obverse.

I think I figured out a new exhibit for the museum...

He fought bizarre underground beings in the caves of Alaska, was wounded by a laser before it was invented, and had a background with the clandestine branch of the Tacoma Cartoonists Society.
