I'm terrible at trash talk, but not dissuaded by it! I'm much more skilled at self-deprecation.

I think we've turned the concept of "simple ball point" on its ear, based on past entries.

Tonight, it begins.

Hmmmmmm.....call me crazy but I think there might a few folks lurking in the shadows waiting for a chance to gun down some of the past winners. If it were me, I'd be out there creating a new work of art. You just never know, right?

Good Luck Everyone~

I hate to be one of who asks questions that have already been answered elsewhere. But in my defense, just a little, the link at the top of this thread on general rules is broken. Ok disclaimers aside, can I use a blank made by someone else such as a Alumilite blanks(s) that I have purchased?

Many Thanks

Shane Barker
