I was looking around on Netflix and I found a very peculiar item. "Fireplace for Your Home: Classic Edition"


I suppose it's for those people who don't have a lighter or wood, but yet have iPhones, computers, and want to pay monthly subscriptions ( :P)

But anyways, this is a surprise to me. It must be very boring, staring at a digital fire for an hour to Christmas music XD.

Well, I found an app that let's me listen to the local public radio station, because for some strange reason I don't have a radio in my room at my parent's house. Now I can listen to NPR and be on BZP at the same time 7 days a week.



That new feature...

Apparently, now when you look at someone's post, it shows if they are currently online or not. This is faster than having to scroll your mouse over their name or go to their profile. This also makes it much easier to tell if the person you are waiting for to reply to your post is not there, or just being plain lazy :P (Although there is also the chance that they are busy viewing another topic, etc.)

Well, It's good to see that some positive change is being made on the forums.

What I've done during this past... two days or so. (Pictures!)

Posted by BULiK , in Progress Updates Nov 23 2012 · 402 views

Well, after a horrible thanksgiving, I've made some progress. I experimented with the paper mache detail thing I've been pondering the past few weeks. It's looking good so far. Yesterday I put on the coat of the clayish paper mache stuff, and put in a dozen or so lacerations, dents, and notches in it, to look like battle damage and whatnot. It dried faster than I thought, and I sanded it to satisfaction today. I took some pictures about halfway through the process. This is the picture of the side after I sanded it somewhat, and here is the picture of the other side which at the time of the picture taking, wasn't sanded. Here's a picture of it on my shoulder. After lunch we went to the local Home Depot and bought the spray paint. The kind we will use is a "Hammered copper", and looks like it will work out good. I also added a few more support strips on the helmet, so it will retain the intended shape as my grandfather paper maches it's inside during the next few weeks. We are waiting until tomorrow morning to paint the shoulder plate, just to give it more time to fully dry. Tonight I'll paper mache the inside of the other shoulder plate. I'll post a blog entry tomorrow with pictures of the painted shoulder armor, if all goes to plan.

Well, that's all for now.

I got something epic in the mail today :D

Vezon and Kardas!

So after two glorious hours of building this set, and I took some pictures.

About a third into the build, when you work on the main spinal column/torso/waist thing, it looks almost like a life size hilt of Tahu Mata's sword. Also, by bending the wing parts a bit, it looks like the start of a crossbow.

Then, after taking those pictures, I continued building. So, here is the finished product presented on my desk (Like a Boss!), and then I posed them for a picture of a hunt (You can decide for yourself which is the predator and which is the prey :P ), etc. etc. etc. Kardas could probably be modified into a Moc of the "King Kriptor", or a Cybran or UEF ACU. :D

Well, this was definitely worth the $27 it cost for me to buy this from Tazakk.

Um... sorry if I broke the blog entry title display thing :P


What I dream about...

Posted by BULiK , Nov 20 2012 · 463 views

Well, I fell asleep In school today, and I had some strange dreams. About half were related to BZP, half of the remaining were related to bionicle, and the rest are about thermonuclear warfare.

Anyways, tomorrow I'll go back to see my grandparents, and hopefully I'll get something done.

EDIT: Well, the guy who has been creating the models I use for my non-bionicle related stuff just churned out some more epic stuff. I can't wait until January, when I'll get a resupply of paper to make this epic new stuff.

I found an epic new screensaver.

Totally better than my laggy Toa Mahri one I used previously.

So, This weekend I've unfortunately only had today to work, due to yesterday and friday afternoon, my Grandparents went to a conference or something. But, I've got a bit done.

Viper MK II: I Finished Glueing the Wing and attached it, so it's complete!



Helmet: So my grandfather managed to have the time this week to Do some Paper mache. He's done the bottom half, and it feels a bunch stronger now. Hopefully he can get the rest done this week. The irregularities caused by the paper mache process actually add to the battle-tested look by making bumps and dents in it, which is awesome. While I was here I Did all the paper Mache on one shoulder plate, so when I get back next weekend I'll use it to experiment with the clay-like paper mache's detail method.

Another look inside

I didn't have time to add more paint to the Companion cube, but I'll do that next weekend. For now, I'll just be putting all my efforts into completing the armor I have built until I get more Cardstock in January. I'll have more time next weekend because I'll get a few days off this week of school for a holiday or something.


Hostess strike

Posted by BULiK , Nov 16 2012 · 409 views

I find the strike actually counterproductive. Those people on strike did realize if Hostess died, they would lose their jobs along with all the other Hostess employees, right? Not to mention make a bunch of desparate snackers pay %95 more for twinkles on eBay.

Well, I'm feeling slightly better, but am still sick. To make things worse, my grandparents are busy this weekend, so I'llhave to wait until tomorrow night to go to their house :c. When I do go there, I will focus on paper-macheing the shoulder pauldrons, so next weekend I can test the clayish paper-mache detail method i've been thining about. I also will paint the companion cube a bit more. But as I stated before, Unfortunately I'll be out of cardstock until january. But until then, I'll be focusing on finishing up this helmet completely, painting the pakari, and paper-macheing the other masks. I am also considering to paint the Gem-thingie black - like an essence stone.


Just saw the news. Bye-bye, Twinkies.
