I have a bunch of MOCs that I've made over the past several months that I just haven't posted because I actually like them and I want them to be represented by decent pictures, and my marginally-upgraded Tracfone isn't the standard I have in mind. So I've only shared a couple of pictures of some of them. One of them is Doggo (Brickshelf gallery when public) who I've only posted a few silly images of in other places, but isn't assembled anymore because I decided to take the upper body and use i
Looking to build this fella, have the body basically worked out but hit a massive wall when it comes to the head. Anyone know of any good techniques for things like the hair? Or even the head overall. It should be about 1.5x-2x the size of the average Kanohi to be accurately scaled to the body.
Yeah. It was really brief, but apparently the owners had just merged it with Brickshelf all those years ago instead of taking it offline but nobody had realized, and all you had to do was append something to the Brickshelf URL to access all of it. I miss Majhost.
Been planning to send my MacBook in to get its battery replaced since I updated to Sierra. The suggested cycle count after which to consider replacing it is 1,000, and I'm over 2,000 now. (I have been using this laptop for five years, so I suppose this being the first maintenance performed on it is a good thing.) One of the things the Apple site suggests is backing up all your data before any repairs, in case of problems. So I bought a 1TB external hard drive off of Amazon. Perhaps it's a
Just watched someone (Coestar) play Oxenfree, and I have to say I am very impressed by it. Visually, I get the same impression as I get from FEZ: the base graphics are very simple, but what the game does with and to those graphics make it look very impressive. Story-wise it's a very interesting take on a supernatural plot, and I didn't really know what's going on until the end… and even then not entirely. This isn't really a review because I didn't play it, but I found it interesting. So wh
I recently updated iMovie because it promised support for high-resolution and high-framerate videos. After updating, though, I discovered that I would have to update past OS X Mavericks to actually get the update with this support. So I grudgingly updated to macOS Sierra, missing El Capitan by a couple of weeks. The end result is: - My battery life has plummeted, and the recharge time has skyrocketed. - My Safari was automatically updated, which I had specifically been avoiding because the n
Finally got around to seeing it a couple of days ago. And then again yesterday. And then again tonight. (My Netflix trial runs out today, so had to get a few viewings in while I could.) I'd looked up the story a while ago because I was kinda eh on whether or not I'd end up seeing it, so I mean it didn't exactly blow my mind in that respect, but even so the plot is intriguing. And pretty much everything about it was great, especially the character animation and voice work. Only significa
Hey in case you missed it before, I've got two shirt designs up on WLF's Fan Forge. Basically they're candidates to be made into shirts based on how well they're rated. They're both Miraculous-themed, because that's how inspiration works for me. The first one is based on Cat Noir's "Cataclysm" attack and is a pretty simple black and white design that I've chosen to display on a few shirt color options. The second is Ladybug's yo-yo and Cat Noir's staff just sort of sitting around, a bit m
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o62cngRy0qI Frontier was the first Digimon series I ever saw, at least in any significant or memorable way. Probably because of that it was my favorite, though Digimon Tamers just barely edged it out years later when I watched it. Frontier still wins for nostalgia though, which is probably the opposite to how the people who started with Adventure and Adventure 02 see it. I also really like the theme song. To me it almost sounds like something you'd hear in B
(Vague, general plot spoilers I guess? Not gonna bother with tags.) Just finished watching what there is of it. It… didn't really grab me. Maybe the premise is too grandiose or something (villain rules half the universe but this one robot thing can stop them!) but it feels like there should be a great show in it that I'm just not seeing. I mean I have specific likes and dislikes, which I guess I can get into. The only characters I really like are Pidge and Hunk, given that Pidge is th
Of the sort you'd see on action figures and such. They provide a better range of articulation on, for example, a knee than a single joint would. I guess this could be that in LEGO form. Obviously it's possible to do something equivalent with two ball pieces or the super-short double socket piece, but thanks to the meshing gears this would only have one degree of freedom so the motion is smooth, rather than having to position the two pivots separately. The tradeoff is it probably isn't as easy
