I have finished my exams and am planning on doing some simming, but first I've got to finish Psychonauts. It's a pretty fun game with some frustrating control & viewpoint problems, and the best character/level/general design ever. Raz is one of my favourite characters to play as in any game. Goggles!

Also I stole a meme from charterzard.

What's on your desk right now?Collapse )

I'm tagging everyone, I like reading about this sort of thing :D

(This is bitching disguised as DW testing, or DW testing disguised as bitching, whichever you prefer.)

I have an issue with my sims game currently. My downloads folder is an utter and complete mess and because of this I can't summon the enthusiasm to start the sort of large, sprawling neighbourhoods I like (it feels exhaustingly messy) yet I can't bring myself to part with any of my content.

Plus I transferred half of it to my external hard drive then changed my mind and I can't be bothered to transfer any of it back. So, as far as sims things go, I am at a standoff.

Which is a shame, I'd been waiting for that apocalypse theme at GoS for aaaages.

Also I am like rolling in tumblrs right now, because they suit my short attention span. There is a somewhat twee one for sim-shot hoarding, and an utterly useless personal one. Feel free to check out either, given that facebook has ridden me of my posting pictures on the internet paranoia.

So GoS is back, excellent. Plus I stole a dreamwidth code off Curious B, so I am happylandfill over there (although there's nothing much there).

In other news, I can't stop listening to this song, it's ruining my indie credentials. I had a bit of an election night too (in the UK in case you didn't gather) but I'm still too disappointed to type about that. Bitterly disappointed.

This music meme that's been going around. Stolen from simbic and everyone else.

"Put your music player on shuffle, and write down the first line of the first twenty songs. Post the poem that results. The twenty-first song's first line is the title."

Don't touch, can't sleep with the lights on.

Wake up feeling good
Been there done that, messed around
I'm sitting on the roof of my house
I wanna hypnotise you baby
Baby I'm not silver and I'm not gold
Last night these two bouncers
I'm rich, like a hot noise
Eighty per cent of lovers never forget their first
(Crystal Castles song I can't understand)
Little ghost, little ghost what I'm scared of the most
Well have you been to the broken bricks girl
My mercury is in retrograde
Maybe Jasper does the Astro
White Light, duh duh duhduhduh
Shyness is nice, and shyness can stop you
Love electricity, shockwave central
Good thieves of burning cars encirle poisoned rivers minds and hearts
Invaders must die
I would say I'm sorry if I thought that it would change your mind
I'm slowly turning into you.

This selection doesn't really work, and I'm dubious about some of lyrics. My music library evidently wasn't made for this meme.

I went to London over the weekend, where it was freakishly hot and came back to find I'd been secreted, which is nice. Thank you, secret maker. I'm afraid my downloads folder is too messy for me to put together a resource list (since I stopped organising things by site) but 90% of my downloads are from the GoS best finds thread or my LJ friends list anyway, I've become very lazy with my downloading.

London is such a pretty place (the parts that we were in, anyway). I'm terribly amazed by cities, since I come from such a small town, everything is a ridiculous novelty, like the underground and all the people. So I would spam you with pictures, except I'm sure they wouldn't be as interesting to all you worldly wise people who didn't grow up in small welsh towns. Anyway. Fun was had.

Long time no see, LJ.

This was going to be my Room with a View entry, but then I realised I'd neglected the view and also built the room wrong, so I'm just going to put it here.

Because I liked the storyCollapse )

I feel like my decorating style is getting steadily bleaker, I don't know. In other news my neighbourhood and playing style is kind of in bits and I haven't felt like making much lately, so I'll probably just be lurking about. As usual.

Grab the nearest book.
Open the book to page 56.
Find the fifth sentence.
Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.
Don't dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the CLOSEST.

Mechanics 3 - Your clear route to A-level sucess (! - there should be an exclaimation mark at the end of that sentence, but there isn't, so I'm pretending).

"Given that P passes through the origin with speed 3ms-1 calculate the speed of P as it passes through A."

Yeah. It's revision time. I now hear that in Jermaine's voice thanks to too much Flight of the Conchords. Hm.

My New Years resolutions involve more Maths, more Physics and more finishing what I started. The first two are not very relevant to this livejournal, but the last one involves clearing out my test folder, so I have some things to show you.

Neighbourhood Deco, this way pleaseCollapse )

I've been listening to this album a lot lately (Grizzly Bear, Veckatimest), although it's a bit disappointing after hearing a selection of songs off their first two albums - I prefer them. However, I really really like this song, and overall it is definitely growing on me a bit.

... Also I've just remembered I've done that meme before. Ah well.

Stuff I meant to upload but kept forgetting Christmas Presents!

We are happy landfill...Collapse )

This is pretty meagre, really you should be casting your aspirations for sims gifts a little higher - I'd tell you to check out the SS gift thread at GoS and just download everything, but there's no way you've missed that until now, right? But really, it is the best thing ever.

More Newtons. Things are still progressing unbelieveably slowly, but I have turned aging back on now. Playing while taking pictures is hard, as is sorting them out later on, I have more respect for you legacy posting people.

In which everyone fucking loves the new roundaboutCollapse )

Bladerunner was on BBC iplayer last night, which was amazing because me and a friend were just talking about it and I've never seen it before. I really liked it, the last part especially was just incredible.

Slots tutorial, because I'm fed up of picking my way through the tutorial I have whenever I forget how to do it. I'm not sure how many people this will be helpful to, or even if I've been clear enough for it to be helpful, but I'm going to stick it here anyway. So I don't lose it.

How to add decorative slots to one-tile surfaces.Collapse )

It's pretty much a chopped down version of the Creating Working Slots for Extended Objects tutorial, but with the extending bits cut out, so (hopefully) easier to read & understand if you just fancy adding another slot to something.
