HMD Post

How's My Driving?

We all know what HMD's are for. This is mine. Go for it. Anon enabled, IP Logging off, comment screened and can be unscreened at the commenter's request.
We're playing IC Apples to Apples for shits and giggles. It's beautiful. And by beautiful I mean terrible. And by terrible I mean I was playing Animated!Optimus and he drew the Viagra card in his initial hand. If you're not crying already, you will be.

This is bad and I should feel bad. But I don't.Collapse )

Ghost Trick Icon Post #2

And as promised, here's a bunch of icons of Ghost Trick's little sprites from various scenes throughout the game! These were done on a much less formulaic basis than the portraits and were all taken pretty much based on my whims, i.e. there are no prizes for guessing who my favorite character in the game is here it is probably pretty obvious.

It also probably goes without saying that there are plenty of spoilers to be had here!

Also 120 icons, natch.Collapse )

Ghost Trick Icon Post #1

So I'm head over fucking heels in love with Ghost Trick and if you've played any Ace Attorney games and liked them even a little then I highly super-duper recommend it. That's right. Super-duper.

However there is one crucial difference between Ghost Trick and Ace Attorney and that is that nobody has ripped Ghost Trick's sprites yet, which is pretty frustrating when you want to make RP accounts for at least 5 of its characters, let me tell you! Well, I've found out the hard way that ripping sprites is hard as fuck or at least it is when it comes to this game, but what isn't hard but merely tedious is playing the game again and going overboard with taking screenshots, and boy howdy if there is one thing I can do, it's tedious nerdy shit!

Long story short I grabbed 'caps and made icons of every single character portrait in the game because I could. Also a fuckton of icons of the little sprites, but those will be getting their own post in a little bit.

SPOILERS also 99 icons but also SPOILERSCollapse )
Hey guys, hope you all had a great Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanzaa/solstice/weekend/etc! I present to you the traditional sharing of swag lists.

All in all a pretty satisfactory haul!

...Yeah I got nothing else to talk about.

Add me. Make my having this thing worthwhile.

Also goddamn I wish I could make this thing scroll vertically instead of horizontally like every other social networking site I use does.

VOICE RECORDING MEME

Because sure why not. Give me something you would like me to voice record and I shall do my best to comply, be it a scene to act out, a dramatic reading, or just a topic to ramble about to my heart's content. Just, y'know, keep in mind that I make no claims about being good at this sort of thing, but perhaps that will be the fun of it. I guess we'll find out!

Here is a quick sample of my normal speaking voice for reference's sake. I don't really have a lot of range, so what you get won't stray far from that.
So I finally got around to reading Lucifer and the Biscuit Hammer. It is good shit and I recommend it.

Yeah that's the only real thing of substance I have to say. HERE'S THE MAN MEME. Because I am a manly man.

MAN MEMECollapse )

Next time on Let's Play Legend of Legaia: Finally, at long last, Conkram for serious and for reals!


That's right, this shit isn't dead. You may want to go and refresh your memory. It's cool, I'll wait.

Next time on Let's Play Legend of Legaia: Soren!
Guys I think Kay Faraday's name should've been localized as Robin instead. For three reasons.
1. Stealing pun
2. Bird pun
3. Edgeworth is Batman pun

Just. Throwing that out there.

So as you may recall, my job places me in a Wal-Mart! This frequently leaves me window shopping on my lunch break or after work but before my ride arrives. Usually not too much of a problem thanks to the lack of stuff I'd like to buy (the Transformers section is pretty much entirely movie toys, alas and I'm pretty set as far as yarnly things goes). But yesterday I noticed this black-and-purple repaint of Animated Megatron. For 10 bucks. Instead of 40.

He makes The Noise when I transform him. This pleases me. :3 And I've totally almost lost his missile once already oh yeah.

It even changed journals while I was gone!

Oh man it's been so long since I participated in the HMD meme this is exciting.

The How's My Driving? Meme
So it's been kind of a while since I updated!

I've started work. I'm not getting a ton of hours, but most of its purpose is for getting out of the house and making sure I can afford Otakon anyway, so that's not that big of a deal. It's been... interesting. Like, one day, I'll be making sandwiches and punch and I'll be running out of samples almost as fast as I can make them and then some days it's like, just pour out some coffee in some cups. But on Sunday I did Wonka chocolates and got a sweet purple apron and purple top hat to wear just for it so I can't really complain too much. If every job I ever hold gives me the opportunity to wear something ridiculous like that I think I will have led a good life. *Sage nod*

I was disappointed by the lack of Oompa Loompa standee I was told I would have.

I've also started RPing again! I've been playing Edgeworth over at route_29, and it's been fun. I should app a second that takes less braining, though. And is more social. And maybe less of an awkard failboat. I mean I love playing Edgeworth in all his awkward failboat glory I picked the most awkward possible canon point on purpose after all, but, y'know. Variety and shit. And being able to still RP even when I'm vaguely guuuuhhhhhh.

Hey guys you know what's rad The Protomen is rad that's right. Rad and soul-crushingly depressing in that beautiful kind of way. And rocking, of course, but a rock opera that isn't rocking could hardly be called a rock opera at all!

Princess Tutu is also totally rad, by the way. I-I always feel kind of awkwardly embarrassed to admit that I watched and liked Princess Tutu because of the name and the whole ballet and magical girl thing because my man cred, but oh man you guys it is so good. I am kind of a sucker for series that are meta like that. And maybe I really really wanted to be a ballerina when I was six but you can't prove anything.

tl;dr it's like guitar ninjas.

Also I have been playing a lot of Mamono Sweeper. It's Minesweeper, but with RPG elements! Yeah I was basically doomed from the start.
So, as some of you may know, I recently gave in and got BitTorrent instead of constantly resorting to YouTube for my filthy piracy. And, of course, as is always the case with shiny new toys, I wish to play with it a bunch.

In other words, I am seeking recs. My tastes are not terribly discriminating and I will enjoy pretty much anything you throw at me (I enjoyed both the Bay Transformers movies, robo-balls and all, for Pete's sake!), but I will admit to a preference to things involving good fighting evil and magnificent villains and worldbuilding and humor and drama in roughly equal amounts. And giant robots. I will admit to being biased in favor of giant robots, though it's far from required. Despite my bias towards manly shit, I am not adverse to girly shit as well. So, yeah. Throw me anything. (Brotips on what sub groups are good and which are to be avoided and good sites for torrent hunting and such would also be appreciated.)

Also don't assume that anything is too obvious to point out, because if it was, I probably would've watched it already and I am way out of the loop on everything always. I only just now got around to watching Gurren Lagann you guys.

Things I have already torrented and enjoyed:
-New Getter Robo
-Heroman
-Tenga Toppa Gurren Lagann (way awesome, by the way)

EVERYTHING ELSE IS FREE GAME. GO.

I am officially not unhireable!

GUESS WHO HAS TWO THUMBS AND A FUCKING JOB?

THAT'S RIGHT! THIS GUY!

So I was woken up at about noon by my cell phone ringing, and peevishly got out of bed to answer it, thinking that it had damned well be a job offer and not a telemarketer or the same wrong number that has made up the majority of calls this phone has gotten (I don't know who this Zita broad is, but I really wish she'd told people that she changed her number), and it was! :D

It's from Crossmark, a company I hadn't really heard of, but found through craigslist. It's apparently some sort of marketing company? The job I applied for (and got fuck yeah) is an "Event Specialist" which really means that I will be doing product demonstrations at a local Wal-Mart. It's part-time work, only Thurs-Sun and now I really have to adjust my schedule to being awake in the mornings but I'm sure I can manage it work starts at 10 so I only have to be up kind of early instead of crazy early.

But anyway I got interviewed over the phone and then offered the job and now I have a bunch of forms to fill out and stuff and then I will be officially gainfully employed.

tl;dr YOUR VICTORY MUSIC. GIVE ME IT.
