We got together at ZiPo's apartment and played some games. One of them was Mortal Kombat X. I had match recording turned on there, so I watched the replays later. And it's even better that I recorded replays: turnes out our fighting styles are so different from each other: I actually know what I'm trying to do (sometimes), ZiPo just semi-randomly mashes all buttons and Jim acts as if doesn't know other buttons even exist.
This year had some events, big and small, in my life. Time to review them. I don't have some art this time, so here's just a wall of text.
Just a funny (to me) idea I've had for years and finally implemented. Also I refuse to believe this hasn't been done before. I mean, the idea is so obvious. Kinda inspired by AMV Hell project.
Since YouTube is a bitch, I'm posting this to Yandex.Disk.

First thing is a very short AMV not unlike the ones AMV Hell consists of. I've had this idea about making a Naruto AMV with a specific song for a couple of years now but I just kept forgetting. Second, recently, I found myself wanting some youtubers I watch to give a shout out to a few games from my school days. Obviously, this is virtually impossible because a) there's no way of reaching them when they have millions of fans and b) the resulting video most likely won't be entertaining for their audience.
It costed a lot (even though I bought it from Amazon) and it wasn't easy to get it on time, but I managed to get my hands on it. Actually, I got it this Monday, it was just a pretty busy week so I didn't really have time to do much at the evenings, besides I wanted to give the controller some test run first before writing about it.
The controller has its ups and downs. I still can't decide if it's really good or not. I think I'll just make a bullet-list of its good and bad sides and then summarize my short experience with it.
I commissioned Bestary, another friend artist of mine to draw me my avatar riding my ponified avatar, and after three weeks that's how it turned out. It took her quite a few attempts to get the anatomy right, as she doesn't have an experience of drawing ponies (or digimon).
A while ago ZiPo and I decided to support our friend NiX by commissioning her a piece of art at the price of what she earned by drawing for two months for really cheap prices. That's the end result. We commissioned a shipping of our OCs. NiX refuses draw anything kinky, so that's the best we could get from her. Cute is her thing, though, it it looks just that. For the record, ZiPo's OC is male.
The art I commissioned quite a while ago (I believe, it was around May, 2015). I misread a phrase on Russian QDB bash.im while half asleep and that's how term “juridical llama” was born. I then wanted to see how it would look. Apparently, this is it.
We finally managed to meet with Marsel for some BBQ and a couple of hot sauces. It didn't go too well… We both endured Tabaso Habanero pretty well. Unfortunately, Dave's Gourmet Scorpion Pepper Hot Sauce was too much: Marsel lasted for about a minute, I lasted for about twenty seconds more. After that we drank a lot of juice/milk, ate ice cream, some bread and bananas and it still burned a lot.
