I have mixed feelings about that finale... I'm sad that it's ended and season 2 is nowhere in sight, but also excited for Agents of Shield to finally start again. For me it was probably one of the better shows I've seen, and I think like Breaking Bad since they had a clear time frame going in they were better able to craft a decent (great), no-loose-ends type of story. I'm just gonna sit here hoping and praying that they renew it coz we need more shows like it on TV.
Mostly coz I don't use my laptop much when I'm at home, I watch TV instead. So expect more activity when college starts next week. Anyway, while on holiday I started watching the Hobbit, and then I watched the second part and then the third and then read the book... and then I watched the LotR movies and am reading the book, so yeah, it's been a productive few weeks. I initially thought I wouldn't like them much, because I'm not usually a huge fan of elves and dwarves and stuff (dragons I ca
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. 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.
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). It was a pretty fun and surprisingly complex build, or maybe I'm just too rusty when it comes to Lego now. 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.
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. I don't know. We're getting the room smoked out or whatever... the good thing about being in colleg
... 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. 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. Second opt
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.
... 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
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
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. So yeah, a no-spiderwebs-attached givea
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 c
Well, I'm off from classes for the whole week (fall break whooo), so like precisely everyone else, I'm gonna go explore Europe. 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?
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...
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. 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 ma
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 (EDIT: This is an old entry that I accidentally republished by clicking the wrong "publish" button. )
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, impr
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. If you're not here for an avatar, uh... how great was that episode of SNL?
I didn't want to make a whole topic about this, but it's still interesting so I'll just stick it here. So as most of you know, Velika the Po-Matoran is actually a Great Being in disguise. I was completely floored when I discovered this fact 3 days ago. What you may not know, is that in Russian and some other Slavic languages, "velikij/великий" means "great" (as an example, Great Britain is "velikobritaniya/Великобритания"). Which means Velika is literally derived from the word "great", an
