I had a friend who "worked" dice punishment into the game by placing his d20 in a bag full of crappy d6 and beating them mercilessly against the kitchen counter. The d20 never seemed to learn its lesson though, and now that I think about it maybe that guy just had some serious anger issues...

I'm not sure why you consider this "jumping on the bandwagon", it appears you're simply unaware of this art movement.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyperrealism_%28visual_arts%29

Hyperrealism sprang from the photorealism movement in painting and sculpture from the 1960s and 70s, but where photorealism is simply making something look as realistic as possible hyperrealism adds a narrative and emotional element to the work.

So when you walk into your average wax museum the figures are just standing there looking like their human counterparts, aka photorealism, while most of Bobby's works contain an emotional element that makes them come to life even more than a simple photorealistic sculpture.

While it's true that not all of Bobby's works would fall into the category of hyperrealism the vast majority contain a narrative or emotional element, such as Jack's screaming face and axe, which make this a more appropriate title. However, like the names of many artistic movements it's subject to personal interpretation, and tends to make nitpickers foam at the mouth.

In the future if you have a question about a terminology, or why someone decided to use a particular term in their post, it would probably be best if you just ask without all the snark, and without using potentially insulting phrases like "jumping on the bandwagon". Otherwise good question and I hope I answered it to your satisfaction!

Ummm, not sure which site you've been reading but we post fun stuff like this all the time. Your words- "Neatorama is not a news source, it's an entertainment source."
Everything doesn't have to be a story, sometimes you gotta lighten the mood up a bit with some funny pics!

I re-read what was posted and agree with you Smitty Smee, so I made some edits to up the compassion level in the article. Hopefully the article doesn't sound so insensitive anymore, and thanks for pointing that out Smitty! I truly meant no disrespect.

From the Gran Canaria Blog-

It's almost that time of year again when the ghosts and ghouls come out to play! Halloween in Gran Canaria is picking up interest as the years go on and there is always something to do in the various resorts.

Holiday World in Maspalomas is holding their annual Halloween party over 2 weekends 28th-29th October and again 4th-5th November. This year's theme is The Mystery of Scooby Doo. It all starts at 18:00hrs with Kids Halloween activities, shows and Horror Costume Contest!
Most resorts will have something going on for Halloween, so get your costumes ready and prepare to be spooked!

It sounds like Spain is joining in on the evil anglosaxon fun after all Nestor! And Gran Canaria seems to be the place to go around Halloween. Sorry to burst your xenophobic bubble!

So, less than half the people in the world cannot afford a fifty cent product, yet I'm wrong when I say people across the globe can afford this product? Way to nitpick and stroke your ego Alan!
