Interests
 Guys I watched the first season of Key and Pele and had to go ahead and call that show quits. Now, I'm all for taking racism less seriously and not being afraid to goof on things like that, but these guys make it 80% of their routine.
They start the season by explaining that they have white mothers and are thus 50/50 mixed white and black, then seem to proceed to act like they are 100% black, mostly making fun of white people with stereotypes and damn near accusations that were just a bit offensive.

For just one example-
A white news caster speaks about a missing little black girl with a bored tone, then says "But who cares about that!? On to this white girl who just had her 5th birthday!!" Yaaayyyyy....    Wait... no. That's not funny or true. White folks dont do that at all. In fact the Trayvon Martin thing proved it is exactly the opposite. These days it is when a black kid might have possibly been hurt or killed by a (any other race that remotely looks white) that gets the nation into an uproar.
Key and Peele use racism way too much, which is sad because a lot of their non-racist stuff is pretty funny.

Am I the only one who noticed this or is it so important to kiss black butt that our brains are supposed to be on auto-ignore on that kind of stuff?
It wasn't super cool when such a big deal was made about Obama being the first black president, ruining all of that completely for the poor ACTUAL fully black president who will eventually be in that seat, but I guess he set the standard for mixed people. If that's the case, I honestly don't think I would be super happy if my daughter married a black guy. K&P along with other comedians have made it clear that's a "trophy" thing in most cases, and it sounds like my ancestry and heritage would be considered null and void if my daughter had a mixed... no I'm sorry, black baby.

I dunno. Sometimes it seems like I'm the only one who notices this stuff. Or maybe I'm one of the few dumb enough to say anything about it. But I live in Memphis so I probably see more of the flip side of racism in America than usual.

Love your recent work on the Age of Extinction line!!!! The paintjobs on them are simply spectacular, with Galvatron being my favourite thus far!!!

By the way, do you have any advice on or recommended brands of paint for painting soft plastics like AOE Strafe's tail/Scorn's spine+Tail?
I've painted it over with Tamiya 'For Plastics' Spray as a basecoat, but unfortunately, it turned the plastic rather sticky and the paint doesn't adhere to it very well(It comes off when I touch it)

Unfortunately the parts you painted with Krylon fusion will never dry, and in fact it will likely break down the rubber over time, turning it into a gooey mess. Removing it all is very difficult too so those guys might be trash now. You have to use acrylics. I suggest a base coat of those cheap tube water acrylics they sell at wal-mart in the craft section. They arent as strong as enamels, but with a coat of vallejo varnish clear brushed over them, it is sturdy enough.

Darn.I see..........I'll switch to those water-based acrylics now. I don't understand why some forums mentioned Tamiya's "for-plastics" spray is safe for use on the soft plastics, when it clearly isn't!!!

Oh well, live and learn!

Thanks for the advice!! :)

Well it is, but not on rubber. Its more for use on things like McFarlane figures or transformer weapons made from the softer more flexible plastic. Even then though some colors, like gunmetal, can end up not drying right.
Safest bet I know of is the cheap tube acrylics.

Hello. I have a quick seeker-related question. How would you go about removing the wings from a Thrust without causing stress marks on the posts?
