Salt

I've been watching Salt in Russian as a way of procrastinating, instead of researching stuff about Ukraine. I think it's a fair compromise.

Bionicle
So I was walking around my friendly neighbourhood Lego store, and guess what I found in a dark corner, hidden away.

Kanoka disc packs.

It was like a wave of nostalgia hit me, and I almost bought one but then I was like what's the point. I'll just tell people on BZP. :P It's funny how a 10+ year old collectible is still available in stores, and I can't find this year's Technic bike thing model...

Edit: Here's a pic.

Building stuff

Lego
I bought Rocka Stealth Machine, mainly coz I couldn't find either the Motocross bike or Evo XL (there is still hope for those two though). :P

It was a pretty fun and surprisingly complex build, or maybe I'm just too rusty when it comes to Lego now. :P It was also strangely cathartic, which is great coz I needed it. A lot. Needless to say I'm gonna be buying a couple more sets, and I can always pretend it's a birthday gift if I start feeling guilty about all the spending. :P

Bugs!

Life, Ew, Help
Bugs! Of some kind have infested my roommate's and I's... room. And beds. I'll give you one guess as to what bugs they are and, if you guess right, I wouldn't know because we don't know what kind of bugs they are either. My money's on a carpet beetle, which is weird because there are no carpets in sight but I guess just because it's called a carpet beetle doesn't mean it's exclusive to carpets. :P

I don't know. We're getting the room smoked out or whatever... the good thing about being in college is there's someone to do it for you. :P What sucks is we can't enter the room for a couple of days and we've been sleeping in the basement which probably has worse things going on than a few critters.

In order to make you (and me) feel better about this, here is a video of dachshund puppies:

Should I Buy...

Posted by Zeddy , Nov 26 2014 · 125 views
Lego
... a Hero Factory set? I don't own a single one and I've been craving for something to build. I'm not with my Bionicle collection (it's at home) so I can't dismantle things and start building. Also I would like to have a few of the pieces too, just to see what they're like and maybe use them in a hypothetical MOC. :P

So my question is, of the current line which one do you like best? I was leaning towards the Evo XL one because if it's the only one I buy, it's OK to splurge a little. :P Second option would be the Rocka Stealth Machine. If you guys already own them, let me know what you think of them. How big are they, how heavy, how fragile/stable (mainly coz they're gonna have to fit in a suitcase).

Worst case, I'll just buy a couple of Mixels. :P

Or, in other words, the pinnacle of human achievement. Landing a probe on a comet a bajilion miles away? Pfft, childs play. Combining snackfood and drink into a cheese-flavored carbonated beverage? That, people, takes true genius. I salute the pioneers at Pepsi for coming up with the one thing this world needed, the one thing we were missing from our lives but just didn't know it until now.

Truly, this is it, people. It's just all downhill from here.

Boiling Potatoes

... is literally the dullest, most time consuming thing I can think of when it comes to cooking. If only the payoff wasn't sooo worth it. WHERE IS A PRESSURE COOKER WHEN YOU NEED ONE D:

Hopefully now that I'll have some boiled potatoes I can finally motivate myself into actually using them in a dish instead of just leaving them there and giving up and eating them with salt or something...

And while we're on the topic of frustrating foods, what is up with the lemons, guys? How the heck is one supposed to use them? They're like yellow oranges (heh) except worse- near impossible to peel, and half of the good stuff just stays unused! I guess I'll just go lemon-less when I'm not at home (or buy those lemon juice things)... The ones I'm used to are small, thin-skinned and you can squeeze them with your hand without spraining your wrist.

I guess I'm just homesick lol

NO NO NO WHY DID YOU CHANGE IT THE ART WAS THE BEST PART OF THE GAAMMEE

Now it looks exactly like that other dual-stick zombie shooter with 3D cuboid characters!

Especially after you ruined Fruit Ninja with whatever silly updates you made to the interface and menu... I don't think I can support you in this endeavor anymore, Halfbrick. Good luck with the fat wads of cash you'll be making but I'll tell you what, you're not gonna find my money in there.

It was a good... idk, like five? years and a lot of fun times, so I'm just gonna leave now before you ruin it more. :P If you need me, I'll be here, glued to my phone, playing 2048 till the end of times.

Free Steam Key

Hey y'all, it's Halloween and I'm feeling generous so instead of handing out free virtual candy (does such a thing exist?) I'm handing out a free steam key for the game FTL. If you're one of the few people who doesn't already own it, go ahead and comment on this post saying you want the game and... why you want it, I guess? Idk I'm bad at doing giveaways. I'll probably do a raffle thing and pick a random person, so it doesn't really matter what you say. :P

So yeah, a no-spiderwebs-attached giveaway of a pretty awesome game. No tricks, that's all there is to it. :P

Happy Halloween!

Back!

So that was a fun (and tiring) trip. Everything hurts and I just want to lie down on my bed and drift off. But I still have the weekend so I could go somewhere else (but probably not because comfy bed + homework + shower + heating = staying inside).

I think the highlight was when I got to do a tour thing where I got to drive around Tuscany in an old Fiat 500. It was my first time driving on the wrong right side of the road so that took some getting used to, but I managed without any civilian casualties. Most of the drive was either up- or down-hill so we didn't really have a chance to go past second gear but it was fun nonetheless. :P It was refreshing and fun driving a car with no electronic assists and also the engine was at the back (!) so it was very loud but oddly peaceful. :P The petrol/gasoline/whateveryoucallit fumes may have helped a bit. :P

I've always wanted to drive an old-ish car, and the Fiat 500 (the new one) is basically my dream car under the category of "Cars I Will Realistically Be Able to Afford Someday", so it was a pretty satisfying tour. ^_^ (If any of you are planning to visit Florence, I'd recommend looking into these tours.)

Well, I'm off from classes for the whole week (fall break whooo), so like precisely everyone else, I'm gonna go explore Europe. :P I'm off to Florence first and hopefully a bunch of other places. I'll be gone till Friday if everything goes according to plan. :) Needless to say internet will be spotty so I probably won't be online much. Here's hoping I don't get killed or worse, mugged.

Don't do anything stupid while I'm gone, m'kay? :P

So, iTunes has received yet another update. I have to say it's a huge improvement on the old UI; I actually kinda like it. It's way cleaner and compact. :)






Now if only I can get it to stay open for more than 5 minutes without crashing...

The Dark Knight Re- sorry, Batman vs. Superman

So apparently there's rumours floating around that Jenna Maroney Jena Malone will play a female Robin in the new Batman vs. Superman movie. Two things:

1) Maybe a dose of feminine energy will help balance the manliness of the Bat-chin.

Posted Image

2) Seriously, DC, why can't you just make a movie based on The Dark Knight Returns and sit back and sip your cocktail made of $100 bills by the poolside which is also filled with money on your beach chair which is also made of- you guessed it- money? The material is there, just make it already D:

I'm still excited for this movie and I'm looking forward to see how exactly they plan to handle the mix of Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, she-Robin, Lex Luthor and Khal Drogo Aquaman without botching everything, as Zack Snyder is known to do occasionally. I don't have very high hopes at this point, but I'd love to be proven wrong in two years' (!) time. :)

I don't know what they are, but I went ahead and bought one. I had a disproportionate amount of fun building it- after the 1-2 minutes it took I felt giddy the whole day.

Who knows.. maybe I WILL GO AND BUY ANOTHER and feel all self-conscious when I walk into a Lego store filled with a bunch of 5-8 year olds :gavel:

Please please PLEASE take a break from making Assassin's Creed games! With a new-yet-old game releasing every single year (TWO major ones this year) you're running a beloved franchise into the ground. I liked it when I had a couple of years between games, taking the time to explore one completely and then waiting in anticipation for the next one to see what new improvements you bring to the sequel.

But now it's like the same game released over and over with minor, yet not really required, improvements and a brand new $60 price tag. I don't have the time, energy or money to keep up with all the sequels that keep coming out. I realize this is a common practice in the video game world (well, I guess it's not limited to just video games) but I thought it was only really restricted to franchises I didn't particularly care about. :P Now it's hitting a little closer to home and I don't like it lol

I guess it's my fault too; I should've probably bought, say, every third title they released and I would have been happy. It's not too late to start though. :(

Well, then you've come to the right place! I'm bored now and probably going to be bored for the foreseeable future until I start panicking and start studying for midterms or whatever, so go ahead and request a banner or avatar that you'd like. This is also me reminiscing about the existence and now non-existence of Artwork II: Shops and Kits. :crying:

If you're not here for an avatar, uh... how great was that episode of SNL?
