That moment...

everything is, awesome
...when you learn how to take screen shots on your tablet and you realize Unikitty has so many wonderful expressions that you don't know what to change your avatar to.

I'll stick with Bizniz kitty for now because there are other Unikitties here and I have no idea if we have a complete set going or not. If we do, I would hate to ruin the chain.

This bugs me more than it should...

"A MOC" which is proper because M stands for "My"
However I'm used to pronouncing it "Em-oh-see" so I always read it as "a M-O-C" and then I cringe and a part of my soul dies.

Frozen stuff and an update on Rapunzel's Tower

Posted by Tekulo in the Green , Jun 19 2014 · 89 views

I know all some five one of you is eagerly anticipating at least one of the things mentioned in the title!
Unfortunately, I won't be sharing any new images for the tower as I haven't added too much at this point.  I have changed some bricks and improved on a few items, but I didn't think it was anything too spectacular to share as of yet.  I did get my pick-a-brick order in yesterday which was the first stage of building the base of the tower.  It is apparent that I will need more sloped bricks and grey.  Unfortunately, grey isn't a popular color for pick-a-bricks, so the LEGO store doesn't carry any of the bricks I need, which means my only options are LEGO shop at home or bricklink.  Only one of those options gives me reward points.  Anyway, I did a first attempt at the base, figuring out what does and doesn't work.  It turned out pretty darn ugly looking, and while I did take a picture of it, I think it best for the sake of my tens of thousands ten five four maybe(?) readers to bury it. 
Now then, incorporating the bricks from Cinderella's carriage for a Frozen set did prove to be a little more challenging than I first anticipated.  I'm still figuring out the best way to proceed, but in the meantime I did throw something together.  Balcony
It was made more for looks than actually being structurally stable.  I already took it apart to build a snowflake pattern with all of those studs.  Speaking of which...  Stud Muffins  I used this effect for the floor.  It's trans blue bricks covered by 1x1 stud tiles.  I tried to pattern it to see of this would work, and it did.  The stud pattern is visible, and the 1x1 clear studs actually give it a sort of frosted effect.  It may not look that frosty in photos, but I like how it turned out.  I'll probably be fiddling around with this idea more.  I tried making a snowflake pattern, but I ran out of clear bricks to cover it.  XP

everything is, awesome
The LEGO Movie DVD was released yesterday on Taco Tuesday.  This makes me so happy that I went to the LEGO store and picked it up.  ^^
I rewatched it with KK and oh my gosh, the feels, the comedic timing, THE BATMAN!
Such a good movie.

Sword Art Online (worst game title ever)

Posted by Tekulo in the Green , Jun 14 2014 · 185 views

So, I keep seeing/hearing about this anime and I decided to give it a shot.  I'm not sure how to put it...
It's not bad and it has its moments, don't get me wrong but it's also a bit lacking in my opinion.  I mean, Sachi and her story arc was interesting and came really close with the feels...  and then, like, I feel they didn't get too personal with anything else in the story ever again.  (Quick note, I haven't finished the series yet.  I'm at the part with the flying and the sister who is super creepy because, Japan, why?)  
I mean, they had some pretty good moments.  The drama was really fantastic at certain parts of the plot, and then the murderer was revealed and that person had literally the worst reasoning ever and just collapsed with remorse.  And it had such a good buildup too!  (Trying to keep this spoiler free, but if you don't want anything spoiled, why are you tempting fate by reading this entry to begin wIth?)
The plot was pretty engaging as it was.  Super mysterious and intriguing.  Too bad there were only two interesting characters.  The rest of the cast was either just unexplored or dumbed down.  And where I'm at now, it just seems like they realized "######, we ended this too soon!  Get me a super cliche and sinister villain with no redeeming moral qualities and another setting, stat!"
Not to mention most of the deaths were characters who got literally no screen time or character development.  It's fine to off characters so long as they're not mentioned except for that one time.  I feel cheated. "We lost fourteen people... and none of them had names."
So, what do I think of the show so far?
Meh, I've seen worse.  Besides, it's interesting enough, but I seriously hope Asuna doesn't turn into Princess Peach.  She is so interesting and cool, why did they put her into that position?

Adventures in DnD

Posted by Tekulo in the Green , Jun 13 2014 · 80 views

So, my brother KK and I started playing a game this past Wednesday.  
My character is a Rock Gnome (because they seemed like a fun race) Druid.  He turned out to be Chaotic Neutral, I'll get to that in a bit.  It's been a lot of fun thus far.
Our story begins within a Gnome city.  The sector my hut is in is less crowded and has more of a natural environment.  I woke up and started doing Druid exercises (whatever those are) when there was a knock on my door.
"GO AWAY!  >=/"
"It's the head druid in the city."
"... Am I going to have to turn into a bear and knock your hut down?"
"Yes.  8D"
"...  He does that.  You are now homeless. -.-"
Long story short, he was talking me into going on a quest.  I was too busy calling him a dictator after he just demolished my home.
"I wouldn't say being a dictator is a problem.  Now, having your house destroyed by a bear; that sounds like a problem."
"Yes, and it's my problem, so you can see how I would be unhappy with you right now."
Anyway, I went into council with the Mayor along with a bunch of other NPCs who were my party.  Due to my bringing up that MY HOUSE WAS DESTROYED BY A BEAR AND APPARENTLY THAT IS OKAY IF YOU HAVE STATUS, my reward money was dropped by ten gold coins.
So, yeah.  I went through the first dungeon and killed six bad guys.  Off to a pretty entertaining start.  (I kinda love the snarky, unyielding attitude my character has.  He is going to get into so much trouble before this game is over)

A fun quote

Posted by Tekulo in the Green , Jun 10 2014 · 81 views

"Hey, Tekulo, where is the dog's toothpaste?"
"...It's being held in place keeping a pocket dimension sealed off.  If anyone were to remove it, unholy nightmares beyond comprehension would befall us."
"Okay, well, I'm not going to move it, but for history's sake, where is it?"
-Me and my brother, KopakaKurahk.
He gets me.  =P

Frozen Figs!

Posted by Tekulo in the Green , Jun 07 2014 · 125 views

Anna and Kristoff
Anna back
I used Cinderella's dress from her carriage set because it had sparkle prints on it, and a design at the base of her skirt similar to the movie.  I don't like that she has gloves, but it's not possible to switch arms with friends torsos.  
With Anna I used Merida's skirt and the cape from the roman series minifig.  Her hair helps keep the cape in place fairly well.  I wish this piece came in orange.  Also, while I don't have a wide variety of torsos in the friends line, there is one in the Pet Salon that would really work for Anna.  Unfortunately it doesn't look like I can order that specific piece from Lego, nor do I want the Pet Salon set.  The dark grey was the closest I could get.
I like that Kristoff isn't from the Friends line.  It gives him a more solid build, which fits with his tough guy muscleliness.  That is totally a word.  
So, are these figs perfect?  No.
Am I happy with them?  Heck yes!
I have yet to get my pick-a-bricks, so it may be a little while until I continue work on Rapunzel's tower.
However, I am looking forward to getting a Frozen work underway.  I'm thinking inside Elsa's palace so I can reenact Life's Too Short (I totally did that with the Elsa and Anna figs earlier today.  I regret nothing!).

Ah, yes. "Hello, I'm calling on behalf of someone on the internet who says she didn't get her Delorean. No, I dont actually KNOW her, per se, or have proof she didn't get it, but she hates phone calls so this is a completely viable alternative." :P

Most people think puzzle games through and figure them out through intelligence and wit.

I just smash the square peg into the round hole until it breaks the hole big enough to go in.

Tekulo is the supreme overlord of lameness and illusory instigation and is far inferior to the illustrious and estimable Nuile, esquire, who is so awesome that a mere glimpse of his debonair, dashing handsomeness and general coolness blinds and in some cases melts eyeballs (note that I am not liable for any injuries acquired through staring at me) and is tall and eminent.

Hello! Today it occured to me that I chat with a handful of staff members both on and off the site. this also made me realize they report directly to you. Whatever gossip they have spread about me behind my back, I assure you, is the truth (unless it isn't).

I remember wheb (edit: wheb is totally fetch and is in no way a typo)
