This was certainly a surprise. If you remember my last post here, I had done a piece for Moon Studio’s #OriValentine giveaway. Turns out I actually won a prize! They sent it out in the mail for me, which arrived a short bit ago.
Until I got these, I had no idea merchandising for this game was really a thing. Stuff’s pretty cool; snazzy pin, little napkin packet and a spiffy journal. Mom actually likes this journal a whole lot, and likes the character art on the front!
I also got my name listed on their site, which is also pretty amazing. A big thank you to you guys, I’m glad you liked my doodle of Ori going giddy over coffee.
I’m totally enjoying this game, great thanks to my brother to getting it for me. We tend to make a formidable team for the most part. This particular ending screen I grabbed was just perfect, victory poses and all. Not only is because my brother is to the right, it’s also because we were both support doing our thing.
In the geek/nerd/anime community, there’s a pun that goes around that “if you’re a virgin when you hit 30, you’ll become a wizard.” I fall into that category. However one night I was chatting with an ex-coworker, she mentioned that I was also a “tech wizard” in addition to that. I figured I’d embrace it it was going to happen regardless, and this happened. Now if my monitors would only stand up like that.
What happens when you take the N7 Eagle pistol from Mass Effect 3 and slap it into Iona’s hand? This. Something I drummed up while playing around in MMD one night.
From what I can tell, this is actually the official model used in the anime, ported for use in MMD. Interesting.
So with my newfound job, one of the things I’ve been doing in trying to stack up on all my favorite books I read while I was younger. These two books I loved to death, as they dealt with mysterious, unknown things. The Universe in a Nutshell helped me understand astronomical and cosmology concepts quite a bit, too. I’m glad to finally own these!
I was not getting a lot of hands-on experience cooking fish, but living on my own was putting preparing food more squarely on my shoulders. One afternoon I finally got an almost perfect mix of breaded, pan-fried tilapia. Flavored with paprika, pepper and salt, I absolutely loved this, considering the last time I attempted this as a disaster. As I’m moving out of my place next week after graduation day, this will probably be one of the last big meals I’m cooking here unless I can top this off with something else.
I love my new tablet. It’s like I’m living a century in the future. I don’t need to carry my laptop everywhere.
But sometimes it gets bugs. And when it loses the Internet connection, strange things happen. As with here.
I would think with such temperature ranges, we’d all be dead by now. -_-;;
For years I imagined that digital billboards would be a thing of the future. I had NO idea that it would be this recent! While this was a welcome development, there were still bugs to iron out. I caught this one night with my family when we stopped somewhere. This Wendy’s menu in-restaurant was running on Windows 7 and needed to run and update. Typical Windows.
In Moscow, weather freezes you.
One day my cousin and I were walking together on the ETSU campus, and we ran across this…interesting setup of stickers. I wasn’t quite aware of who Demon Waffle was, but Medhavin definitely knew and had a big kick out of this. Honestly if it wasn’t for him laughing so much I wouldn’t have snapped this.
