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.
Probably my last battle with Jim. Date: July 13, 2015. I used a team which took me about two weeks to assemble, fully train and equip. It consists of some of my most favorite Pokemon. My list of favorite Pokemon has about 20 of them, so I had to think a more or less balanced team for a competitive fight. At least I had a choice. Days of studying Pokemon builds at Smogon and Serebii.
Recently I became interested in lock picking, and for that I blame YouTube. It turned out, picking locks is fun and challenging. It’s like solving a Rubik’s Cube. I’ve read Mike Gibson’s (DrBint) “Lock Picking: Detail Overkill” and watched a bunch of YouTube videos, so I know the basics of lock picking. Unfortunately, I don’t think there’s a way to get lock picks in my area, and I don’t have neither tools nor knowledge to make a decent pick myself.
A vector of Scolipede from this awesome picture by ConterMarune￼ (posted with his permission). Another half-assed vector from me, because I recently beat Pokemon Omega Ruby (yes, I am tardy) and played a lot with Scolipede in Pokemon Amie. Scolipede is such a cutie! Original image belongs to ConterMarune. Scolipede and other Pokemon belong to Nintendo and/or GameFreak (I don’t know how they manage IP between themselves). I only vectorized what has been created by them.
