Oh Em Gee, Ponies and stuff rawrrr~

I'll never ever EVER watch that show again!   ... Oh wait, I never did anyway 8D   Anyway in all seriousness I'm feeling a ton better now, my chest doesn't hurt as badly, and I look forward to getting back to work tomorrow. What am I working on tomorrow, you may wonder? BORG. AND DEATH STAR. AND STUFF FOR A CLIENT NAMED MEECRO SAFT. I think we got that name wrong on the form. I guess we'll find out when the check comes in 8D   But in all seriousness I was really sick D:

So now I'm sick

I've been saying it for years, the only way I would get sick is if it had to drag me into a bed and find a way to keep me there.   Well played, stomach bug. Making me so dizzy I can't even stand is indeed one way to keep me here. But by midnight tonight I will defeat you. I must.

10 Years.

Oh right, I've been around since 2003.   ... What is this I don't even.

Ambitious Plan: Buying Nightwing... on the cheap! Also maybe Red Hood.

So, in 2006, I was very poor. This is to expected, I was still in high school. I couldn't afford to buy the good sets like (at the time) the popular Batman line sets. What did I miss out on, one might wonder. Well, the biggie I have is Nightwing the figure. He was only available in the Arkham Asylum set, #7785. He is probably one of the rarest figures I have ever laid eyes on in that particular series. I'd put him rarer than some of the others, especially since he was not re-released in the Batm

"You're Banned"

... I should make a custom Red Hood minifig. That'd be epic at work, especially on my brick badge for Emerald City ComicCon.

Update on HS01 Main Page Nav

I took some opinions I gained from people on my IM, and my limited blog comments, and I created this new revision. The old is just below it.   I think I did a better job on this pass, and it looks more cohesive. I'd love it if we can find a better Missions and possible a better Saga Guides image, but I did make some major changes. In addition, I adjusted the lettering spacing so the I looks cleaner. Easier to read. I also negated almost all gray (the LEGO Black icon is staying, it's the best

Lego Marvel The Video Game

Dude.   ... Dude.   Dibs on Deadpool.   Anyway, I'm happy they finally announced another superhero game, and it's even more surprising given I would expect them to release it last year when Avengers hit. I suppose it makes sense to release it when Iron Man 3 hits.   I look forward to it, Fall 2013 isn't coming fast enough.

Allow me to sing you the song of my people...

So, exciting times coming up here in the studio this coming beginning of the year.   We're in the process of making up to 6 different events at the same time happen, including three shows in the summer, a -huge- model for Emerald City ComicCon, an event in February at CenturyLink Field (Probably the WaMu Center... but if it's the real field, I'll be a happy Swerty : D) and another couple of things I forget off the top of my head.   Basically I'm busy. With any luck I'll be able to post teasers o

HS01's New MP Nav

Alright, so as mentioned on HEROsector01's main page news, we're planning to upgrade the main page to the same layout as BS01's, or close to it. One of these includes my pretty clever navigation system (yes I did actually create the concept, even if SK and Metax managed to make it all work... kudos to them, though).   What comes with this navigation? An actual button grid:   And if you weren't aware, BS01's main page navigation works by clicking a tile, and a menu slides from the right to the

Swert's (lacking) Christmas haul

So, money got tight this year for practically everybody I know, except my brother who's been promoted to manager of his department, and my grandparents who own stock in the good stuff like PepsiCo, which isn't going anywhere any time soon. Having said that, my gifts this year were modest, small, and will probably expand in time if someone goes out and does something about it.   My brother bought me XCOM: Enemy Unknown and gave me a MS Touch Mouse he bought at the company store when it was on sal

Lhikan's Hau, Pt. 2

Now you know why I posted it.   Wonderful discussion we had, too bad others DOn't seem to think so. RathEr odd, if you asK me.

I need a vacation.

So, I'm currently off from work right now, both today and tomorrow. The rest of the week, I go in to work and do a workshop, then drop-in play days for kids paying. I also get to manage our train display (I'll link a Photosynth of it later on, need to make a better one.)   In addition to all of that, I also have a Christmas party at my brother's house I'm attending. I'm happily looking forward to that, if only because my brother just scored a Surface RT from work, plus I'd love to play around wi

Hobbitses-es. es.

So, unfortunately I work two days in a row starting tomorrow, and I have stuff to do on sunday, so I guess I get to go see it on Monday.   Even though I read the book like twice and saw an animated version of it once, please don't spoil it   Hopefully worth the money.

Long Day x_x

Sup Internet. It's Swert.   So I went to work in my usual timeslot today... tons of LEGO building, gluing and making things look pretty for clients... again.   And didn't finish until 7:30 Pacific.   So yeah, I'm tired and it's my dad's birthday. But all is well, I'm just going to relax now and enjoy the rest of my wee- wait, I have to work two more days?!   ... Challenge accepted.

Emerald City ComicCon 2013

Looks like I'll be going again.   And we have bigger plans for models this year 8D   Also December will be pretty packed for me as far as work goes. I'm hoping to do a few things for BS01 and HS01 (like finish updating HS01's main page to BS01's standards, and bringing BS01's main page up to completion) but the time's limited.   I didn't even get to finish Halo 4's Spartan Ops episode this week yet. x_x

In the City Blocks 2012 Train Layout now!

Of course, this is an older photo, I've since redone that black wall with an epic look (photos coming Monday night, when I go back to the shop :3)   And yes, it says Swert. It is the Swert building. We sell Swerts.*   *No we don't.

One Does Not Simply...

On the plus side, I finished the campaign already (2 days' worth of work) and I now have about 30 days of quests, free play and mithril bricks to find x_x   Oh, and IE10 pre-release. It has spellcheck built in : O which is new FOR IE. I know you FF/Chrome/Safari/others had it first. Fortunately I never needed it but it's nice to have.

I destroyed Mata Nui... WITH HELP : D

So, in the month of January 2012, I approached (with Xccj) my boss with an idea: Build the island of Mata Nui. 10 feet by 5 feet.   Terms of the agreement were clear: Don't take too long, make a kickin' model, and disassemble it off the clock.   ... I disassembled it this previous week.   BUT! I had help : D   Lehvak taking care of the green brick   Gahlok holding a 4x4 plate   Tahnok and Gahlok at work. I think the Tahnok wants to melt the red brick o_o;;   BOHROK VA! : D   Everybody pitch

It's been a long day...

I spent most of it working on dismantling the island of Mata Nui, then I get home and all of a sudden... Halo 4.   Today was long, but the payoff is epic.   Oh also something political. Whatever

An Expanded Multiverse Secret; To Be Revealed Soon

For all readers of the Expanded Multiverse and more specifically the Cipher Chronicles, you may or may not recall the character named Revolution.   If so, you will recall Bonesiii and I had taken plenty of steps in keeping the identity of Revolution secret. In fact, I even resorted to using a nanite android in order to use him without using him, just to keep the identity secret.   You see, Revolution is not, as one might expect, what he seems to be. Revoution was always an envisioned figurehead,

AC3 Multiplayer for 360; Anyone interested?

I -really- want to get a game going eventually, and I've never felt comfortable playing random games online with people I don't know.   So, I'm inviting the users with Gold XBL membership on the 360 to play. I know there's at least 5 of us around here.   Any takers?

The problem with AC3...

I seem to have awoken my British bloodline (one of the many bloodlines I have) and I now have a posh accent. x_x   But on the plus side? I'm about halfway through the storyline (I hope). I'm trying to stretch it out over a few days for once.   Still epic.

Assassin's Creed 3

............   I'm going to try and be non-spoiler about it.   But suffice to say I wish I didn't self-censor ;_;   ... End of Sequence Three. That is all.

Flood Watch

So my area is now on a flood watch. Swell.   Fortunately, they say it'll be minor flooding in the Puyallup River.   In the meantime, to the BZP members in the Northeast of the US, stay safe and warm.
