I posted this on my various social media accounts earlier but I am going to talk about it here too. As many of you know I talked about our cat, Pickles quite a bit.

So it is with a heavy heart that I must say that she passed away yesterday morning.

RIP Pickles.

Love you, Pickles.

Which Set Should I Build First?

Posted by Toa Smoke Monster in The Island., May 28 2016 · 13 views
Tahu Uniter, Darth Vader and 1 more...

So I have three unbuilt sets currently sitting in my room. One is the General Grievous constraction set, which I got back in September. The other two are the Tahu Uniter set and the Darth Vader constraction set, both which I got back in March. I haven't build any of these sets due to a combination of work, doing various stuff online, playing Pokemon: Omega Ruby, and me just being lazy. :P

But now with the Ekimu titan and Umarak the Destroyer sets coming out soon, I figured I better build the sets I already have before getting new ones. And since I have a couple days off next week, I thought I could at least get one of them built during that time. An I think it would be fun to put it to a vote from my fellow BZP members to see which one I built first.

This vote will go until Tuesday, as that is one of my days off next week. Everyone can cast one vote, which they do so by leaving a comment in this entry. I'll tally the score as the votes are casted and keep it updated here. I will say that I personally would be fine if building any one of these first. I am just curious to see which one would get the most votes if I put it to one. And so here we are. :P

Now vote away!

General Grievous: 0
Darth Vader: 0
Tahu Uniter: 0

some more updates and stuff

Posted by Serein in pain's a secret no one keeps. you're the lie that I believe., May 27 2016 · 46 views

no jokes this time and I'll probably keep it relatively brief and casual cuz I'm just too tired

lots of great new music came out in the past couple weeks. there was the new Katatonia last week which is currently my AotY, and then this week new Architects and Thrice both of which are pretty killer. dude at the record store sold me the former a day earlier than the release date which is pretty cool. meanwhile I've been trying to work out a new organizational/storage system for my 750+ CDs and that's been kind of a pain (literally. those boxes are heavy)

also been catching up on this season's anime. Studio Trigger's Space Patrol Luluco is adorable and one of my favorite things in a while, although tonight's episode was kind of weird and felt rushed but still. I've also been enjoying Wit Studio's new show Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress. it's a little too similar to Attack on Titan (also by Wit) storywise but the animation is absolutely gorgeous and I'm liking the characters for the most part. Kiznaiver is another thing I'm really enjoying, it's also by Trigger but it looks and feels kind of different for them and I'm really digging the story and the characters. I've also been watching Mayoiga, although I don't know why at this point, since almost all the characters are really unlikeable and the story has kinda jumped the shark. beyond that I've started Tanaka-kun Is Always Listless and Anne Happy but haven't gotten far enough in either to make a judgment yet, and I've also still got a pretty long list of stuff I intend to check out at some point.

and finally (and most importantly), in addition to my continued quest for employment I'm probably gonna start taking art classes soon. haven't worked out the specifics but it's something I'm really interested in doing and I've already found a few options that seem plausible. maybe if this pans out I can eventually do art as a career, that'd be pretty cool

and that's it I guess. idk why I've decided to make these occasional life update entries here, my interest in this place is at an all-time low and I don't think anybody reads them anyway, but whatever

BZPower Shirts up for grabs!

Posted by Jedi Master J. in The Library That Never Was, May 27 2016 · 72 views

Hey, folks.

As mention in my last few entries, I have a bunch of BZPower shirts that I brought from Brappy Hour's leftover shirts lot awhile back (Like two or so years ago, to be exact. XD). And well, I figure its about time that I put them up for grabs for you folks that miss out on them or just couldn't afford them at the time, etc.

So yeah, here's the list of shirts up for grabs:

- 6 Small 2012 BZP Shirts

- 1 Large 2013 BZP Shirt - Claimed by Makuta Luroka

- 7 Small 2014 BZP Shirts

- 2 Medium 2014 BZP Shirts

- 5 Large 2014 BZP Shirts

The shirts are free and there is no charge for shipping (I will also ship overseas if needed.).

Also I did not create these shirts (Brappy Hour did and is currently creating a Piraka theme shirt for this year's BrickFair VA) and I cannot recreate them, so what you see above is all I have.

So if you are interest in one of these shirts, please leave a comment to let me know which one and what size.

That's about it. Oh, wait, I almost forgot to mention this... If I still I have shirts leftover by July 4th, I will closed this blog entry and drop off whatever leftover to a nearby Purple Heart station, so you have till July 4th to claim one of these shirts.

Okay, that's all I got to say for this entry. Once again, if you want one of the shirts, please leave a comment letting me know which one and what size. Oh, and thanks for taking the time to read this. I hope you all have a great day. Talk to you later, BZPers.

What lost thing will you look for?

Posted by Soran in Soran's Stuff, May 26 2016 · 114 views

Here's a situation:

Everything you have ever lost is returned to you one day. What is the first thing you try to find?

I have a couple games that I misplaced that I'd like to find if given the option. Either that or some stuffed animals.

???????????????????

  • What'd you do if you had a clone?
  • What'd you do if you had... two clones?
  • What would you do if you a clone but it went insane/evil?
  • How would you know you're not a clone?

ToaD Works at a Restaruant: Horrible Managment

Posted by -ToaD- in ToaDally Terrible, May 25 2016 · 65 views

I can understand running out of one thing or rarely two, but a restaurant should never run out of SEVEN FREAKING THINGS.

We had no ice cream, milk, whipped cream, Styrofoam cups, vanilla syrup, lettuce, and french fries.

All of this gone on quite possibly the busiest Monday I've ever seen, and of course management orders hardly enough to last even one day, honestly I miss the training at the location an hour away from where I live, at least THEY had stuff.

The DJ Kumo mask (exclusive lost footage)

Posted by Bfahome in You're attacked by a Repair Nektann, May 24 2016 · 57 views

Not really.

Well, sorta.

Recorded a whole series of videos back when I did this (2013!) explaining much of the process and idea behind what I did. I doubt I'll ever put them out there, it's lots of dead air and ums and ahs and redundant or unimportant information. This is probably the one big thing worth sharing, which is the Arduino sketch I wrote to accompany the song "Disco Lights" by Alex S. and PinkiePieSwear from the big Balloon Party collaboration album. I liked it, but after running through it an uncountable number of times to correctly program the Arduino sequencing I got a bit sick of it.

But anyway, here's that sketch played out in as good a way as I could.

Time Wasting

Posted by Destined Blade in Trainer in a Faraway Place, May 24 2016 · 48 views

So, I just went through and got all of the blogs that weren't disabled marked as read. All 90+ pages of them. Why did I do it? I have absolutely no clue, I guess I was too bored for even Picross to help... ;-;

now, if you'll excuse me, I think I need to reboot Firefox, it's complaining a bit about the sheer amount of stuff that's happened since the last reboot.

Conflict of Thrones (Not BZP's)

Posted by Ta-metru_defender in TMD's Creatively Named Blog, May 24 2016 · 81 views

I've been wondering why this latest season of Game of Thrones hasn't felt as enticing as usual, why it feels a little meandering-y. And I think it may be because of a lack of conflict? Last season had clear bits: Tyrion and Varys were going to Meereen (politicking their way there), Jon Snow was trying to save the wildlings (against Alliser), Jamie, with Bron, was trapped in boringland trying to get his daughter-neice back (against the boringones).

This season hasn't had that much of a conflict yet. Sansa and Jon have been doing their thing, Arya's moving in circles, etc. No conflict has lasted more than one episode, besides Daenerys's (which has been without the rest of her crew) and the King's Landing politicians verses Sparrow one. Even Littlefinger (who's the best) has just been politicking in circles.

Basically, GoT needs more friggin' conflict.

Philosophy

Posted by SPIRIT in SPIRIT's Blog, May 24 2016 · 131 views

I've thought long and hard about what I want my life to be about. There are so many philosophies out there, but I've found they're all pretty limiting in one way or another. But I think I've found the one that suits me the best.

From now on, I'm going to be a humanitarian!




I've already tried being a vegetarian, but I think this diet will be easier to maintain. Just don't tell the cops. They're already pretty upset after my egalitarian diet. Which is a shame, because eagles are just so darn tasty.

The Art of Moderating

Posted by FallenAtlas in The Weight of The World, May 23 2016 · 211 views

No, this isn't a place to discuss recent, but unfortunate events. No, this isn't an attack on the great staff we are lucky to have. These are four rules I've created for myself, over my time as a moderator(s) and even once as an Admin of various sites. And I feel I should share them.

1. Be respectful. Always. Even when emotions run high, don't attack. It's not worth it, and it doesn't help anybody. Give the staff your respect, and if they are worth their salt, they'll return it.

2. Be accountable. When you make a mistake, break a rule, or insult somebody, own up to it. If your pride is so big you can't do that, you have other issues. Coming clean the first time, every time is the right thing to do and it saves everybody's time.

3. Be forthcoming. Don't let an issue sit and boil with another member until it explodes. If you have a problem, talk to a staff member about it. The longer you let it sit, the bigger the explosion will be. Somebody will be hurt, somebody may leave, and nobody wants that. Don't let it happen.

4. Be honest. You can lie and hide, but the truth comes out over time. And it's never pretty. When asked by staff anything(except obviously, that which is personal or degrading(common sense!).), be honest. Saves time and it's respectful.

I've learned these over...oh, several years now. Good rules to live by, and good rules for online. I just felt like I needed to share them, as a small reminder given the current mood.

Again, this isn't to discuss recent events and this isn't an attack against the staff. This is just me, feeling like the site could use this reminder.

What it is

Posted by DeeVee in What You Want is Now, May 23 2016 · 276 views

I'm alive! And with all my teeth still in my head! Folks will have to find game tokens elsewhere. Oh well!

There's been probably the biggest amount of personal stress and change in parts of my life ever the past few months, and I've been focusing so fully on that I had stepped away from BZPower for the last several months. The stress and changes all worked themselves out in the best possible ways recently, but I debated continuing to be stepped away as I've recently felt much less welcome by a group I counted as closest friends. For all you kids out there, the drama doesn't stop after school. I'm so very sorry to inform you of this. But you do the best you can, and you keep the people who prove themselves to be worth keeping for as long as they are worth keeping.

I've actually got several MOCs I've built the past few months that I'm getting ready to start photographing and posting soon too! So it's almost like a full return to form! Wow!
