  1. Wish that YemonYime guy would get off his duff and design sumthin' again.
  2. These are beautiful! Another wonderful piece of art by Tsun!
  3. Yikes, sorry guys, didn't notice this until today. Yes, there are YCR's in very small numbers again for 2012. In the past, I've just sent these out to clients, friends, etc. This year, I will be making some available as I've got a really big adventure upcoming. I hope to be working on taking pictures this week, so I'll post them when they're done!
  4. Not to France particularly, no, but the French language is the only one I know that has a word with this particular meaning... Also, after having repeatedly jarred his head on branches, rock outcroppings, computer desks, etc...Chris' true and accurate "memories" may have been inadvertently mixed in with dreams, fantasies, and his secret desire to be a gymnast. Therefore, the word "memoires" is much more accurate as he's had to piece together factual geocoin design information from an entire studio wallpapered with post-its and the various permanent sharpie scribbles on his appendages. I think it's all very accurate, except the part about needing to pick up his dry cleaning last November. Take that blunderous snippet out of the book, and you've got a Pulitzer contender. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Okay all kidding aside, I've had the honor and pleasure of receiving a copy of "Discovered"...and it's brilliant. Chris takes you on start-to-finish journeys with some of his most amazing designs, allowing rare glimpses into the thought processes of one truly gifted artist. It's a wonderful documentary, with touches of wit and humility mixed in with Chris' clever eye for cool design. Regardless if you've got one, or one thousand geocoins in your collection, there's something for any geocoin enthusiast to "discover". Congratulations, Chris. I mean that sincerely. You've once again "raised the bar", and furthered the evolution of trackables. Dave (Yime)
  5. Really sad to hear of this. Partly stunned, partly upset, but mainly proud for having the chance to correspond with him as he put his mark on our hobby. I'm probably not the only one to do this, but I just set one of his coins (a Tengwar) on a stand here and will just keep it in sight for a while. He was not only a good guy, but a talented mind who raised the bar here. My sincere condolences to his family as he's laid to rest today.
  6. 2121. Awesome, Ozzie!
  7. Hah...well, you are a LOT closer to the LEGO "home office" than I am. redwingrr helped us out considerably by braving a long line to get an exclusive promotional set. That was really sweet of her, and I honestly can't thank her enough for her efforts. My youngest son has hit an engineering spurt, so I've been on the lookout for hard-to-find creator or architecture sets to satisfy his fascination with building. I can only hope he doesn't discover Minecraft, because building LEGO is more productive than sitting in front of a TV playing video games.
  8. Counts if you're taking me! Unfortunately, it is only the stores having their Grand Openings that will have the promotional set this time around. Well, they're not really evil. Just kinda more like...the opposite.
  9. I’ve got a little different kind of trade/barter offer for geocoiners near (or travelling to) the Vancouver and Milwaukee areas in the next few weeks. I know it’s a longshot, but hey...sometimes geocachers like a seeking challenge, right? My youngest son and I are big fans of LEGO, and we’re looking to get an upcoming exclusive promotional set. It will only be available on specific dates, and only at the Grand Openings of brand new LEGO stores in Vancouver, BC and Milwaukee, WI. It will also require a $35 purchase at the store, which I will gladly fund! The dates and locations are: Saturday, May 5th The LEGO® Store Oakridge Centre 650 West 41st Avenue Vancouver, BC V5Z 2M9 Saturday, May 12th The LEGO® Store Mayfair 2500 North Mayfair Road Wauwatosa, WI 53226 Along with funding the required LEGO purchase, I’m offering two very exclusive geocoins. One is the 2011 Compass Rose YemonYime Variant (Yimelight Edition), and the other is...let’s just say...it’s evil twin that has yet to be revealed. I know it's a longshot given the geographical limitations, but if anyone's interested, please shoot me an e-mail at yemonyime(at)yahoo(dawt)com to discuss? Thanks! Dave (Yime)
  10. Great to hear things are on the upswing, Randy. Wishing you continued success!
  11. Wow, that's a gorgeous design! And the pearl translucent...very, very nice. Makes the sky look very Van Gogh!
  12. Always like suns and moons. Good job!
  13. Well, thank you! That's very nice of you to say! Truth is, I haven't done many new designs as of late, but I do have a few brewing for CoinsAndPins' Geo-Achievement series. I'm also working on some really cool designs for MWGB this July. And as far as the colors, I owe it all to my son liking lemon-lime more than the other flavors in Dairy Queen's freezer. I'm glad he didn't say "chowy" (cherry).
  14. Hi guys! Here's a picture of both sides of the "Yimelight Edition"...
  15. Sincere thanks to whomever sent the No-L mystery coin. Very, very clever. I thought I knew who it was, but we both ended up thinking it was the other. Very nice gesture whoever you are, so THANKS!
  16. It was a wild and wacky week in the world of the NFL, and three of the biggest favorites (Baltimore, Philadelphia and San Diego) got beat...and so those of remaining in the One Strike got the axe all at once! I'd like to take this opportunity to thank rickctroop13 for running the cointest again this year!
  17. Drop your jocks and grab your socks! The biggest favorite of the day, the New York FOOTBALL Giants, just laid a big egg and wiped out 7 out of the 8 remaining players in the One-Strike! Good luck to Soda Jack's, who will win it all with a San Francisco 49ers win...in only Week 5!!! WOW!!!!
  18. Now that is an extremely clever idea! Very well done!
  19. I'm interested in this JCanyoneer geocoin. If you acquire it, and you're interested in a 2010 Compass Rose Yime Edition, let me know? Thanks!
  20. As a Browns fan, this has gotta be killing you...
  21. I'm interested in this JCanyoneer geocoin. If you acquire it, and you're interested in a 2010 Compass Rose Yime Edition, let me know? Thanks!
  22. Spectacular stuff, Mack! Egyptilicious! Regarding the "block"...I hear ya. Still waiting for the day someone invents "Mentalmucil".
  23. Put me down for a set if they're made. Thanks!
  24. Very nice job on these, indeed. I am a fan of art nouveau, often finding my favor going back and forth with art deco. The details work excellent with the translucents. I think I'll find myself wanting one of these. Great work!
